In Book 9 of the Odyssey, Ulysses saves himself and his men by blinding Polyphemus. Which lines reflect the Cyclops's disappointment at being defeated by guile and not by strength? Oh heavens! oh faith of ancient prophecies! This, Telemus Eurymedes foretold (The mighty seer who on these hills grew old; Skill'd the dark fates of mortals to declare, And learn'd in all wing'd omens of the air); Long since he menaced, such was Fate's command; And named Ulysses as the destined hand. I deem'd some godlike giant to behold, Or lofty hero, haughty, brave, and bold; Not this weak pigmy wretch, of mean design, Who, not by strength subdued me, but by wine. But come, accept our gifts, and join to pray Great Neptune's blessing on the watery way; For his I am, and I the lineage own; The immortal father no less boasts the son.

Explanation :

In the net ionic equations, we are not include the spectator ions in the equations.

Spectator ions : The ions present on reactant and product side which do not participate in a reactions. The same ions present on both the sides.

(a) The given balanced ionic equation is,

Ni(NO_3)_2(aq)+Na_2S(aq)rightarrow NiS(s)+2NaNO_3(aq)

The ionic equation in separated aqueous solution will be,

Ni^{2+}(aq)+2NO_3^-(aq)+2Na^+(aq)+S^{2-}(aq)rightarrow NiS(s)+2Na^+(aq)+2NO_3^-(aq)

In this equation, Na^+text{ and }NO_3^- are the spectator ions.

By removing the spectator ions from the balanced ionic equation, we get the net ionic equation.

The net ionic equation will be,

Ni^{2+}(aq)+S^{2-}(aq)rightarrow NiS(s)

(b) The given balanced ionic equation is,

NaNO_3(aq)+KBr(aq)rightarrow KNO_3(s)+NaBr(aq)

The ionic equation in separated aqueous solution will be,

Na^+(aq)+NO_3^-(aq)+K^+(aq)+Br^-(aq)rightarrow KNO_3(s)+Na^+(aq)+Br^-(aq)

In this equation, Na^+text{ and }Br^- are the spectator ions.

By removing the spectator ions from the balanced ionic equation, we get the net ionic equation.

The net ionic equation will be,

NO_3^-(aq)+K^+(aq)rightarrow KNO_3(s)

(c) The given balanced ionic equation is,

Li_2SO_4(aq)+BaCl_2(aq)rightarrow BaSO_4(s)+2LiCl(aq)

The ionic equation in separated aqueous solution will be,

2Li^+(aq)+SO_4^{2-}(aq)+Ba^{2+}(aq)+2Cl^-(aq)rightarrow BaSO_4(s)+2Li^+(aq)+2Cl^-(aq)

In this equation, Li^+text{ and }Cl^- are the spectator ions.

By removing the spectator ions from the balanced ionic equation, we get the net ionic equation.

The net ionic equation will be,

SO_4^{2-}(aq)+Ba^{2+}(aq)rightarrow BaSO_4(s)

I have travelled the length and breadth of Alabama, Mississippi and all the other southern states. On sweltering summer days and crisp autumn mornings I have looked at her beautiful churches with their spires pointing heavenward. I have beheld the impressive outlay of her massive religious education buildings. Over and over again I have found myself asking: “Who worships here? Who is their God? Where were their voices when the lips of Governor Barnett dripped with words of interposition and nullification? Where were their voices of support when tired, bruised, and weary Negro men and women decided to rise from the dark dungeons of complacency to the bright hills of creative protest?” What is the main idea of the paragraph?

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

Read this paragraph from The Dark Game. It may seem surprising that no Confederate sympathizers took action against Van Lew, given her strong and public views on secession and slavery. Surely there were suspicions, especially among her upper-crust neighbors, but the matter never went beyond those suspicions. Historians have suggested that the secessionists were victims of their own cultural bias, believing that no aristocratic person, and certainly not a lady, would ever consider taking part in anything as impolite as spying. A true lady managed her servants, prepared parties and gatherings, and blindly supported her husband. Such attitudes worked in Van Lew’s favor, diverting suspicion from her. What central idea is implied in this paragraph? A-Elizabeth Van Lew did not follow the rules society set forth for ladies of her time and social class. B-Elizabeth Van Lew was a successful spy because society did not expect a lady to serve in that role. C-Elizabeth Van Lew was able to disguise her spying activities because she kept her views about the war to herself. D-Elizabeth Van Lew created for herself an untrue but believable cover story: she was a wealthy lady living in a fancy neighborhood.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

How does the first paragraph of The Dark Game best support the central idea that the Civil War was a long war?

[ad_1]

The correct answer is the following: option A. The error that is made in the sentence showed in the question is that the sentence lacks parallelism. Parallelism is a grammatical construction used to balance nouns with nouns, participles with participles, infinitives with infinitives, clauses with clauses, in order to promote clarity and readability to any text.

In the sentence “Either do well in school or giving up the drums” the writer did not use parallelism and as a result, the sentence is not clear enough. The proper way to write such sentence would be: Either do well in school or give up the drums, so that there is a balance between the tense of the verb used within the sentence.

The correct answer is B. She took a deep breath and stepped onto the sidewalk as her tears were drying.

Explanation:

The syntax is the study of grammatical structures in sentences, this means syntax deals with the rules and principles that guide the way language is used following specific structures including word order. Even though syntax can vary and the order of words in a sentence is not completely fixed, especially in the way real users of language use words,  according to traditional syntax sentences should follow a specific order which is Subject (the one doing the action) + Verb (action) +Object  (the object affected by the action).

In this way, this is the order words in a sentence should follow and the case of option B as the subject goes first, then is followed by a verb and then by an object, then a second verb is introduced and the object of it, a subject it is not placed before the second verb as the actions are connected to the first subject:  She (Subject)  took (Verb) a deep breath (Object) and stepped (Verb) onto the sidewalk as her tears were drying (Object). Thus, B is the sentence that follows the traditional syntax structure as it follows subject + verb + object.

Answer:

c. The discoloration of ages had been great.

Explanation:

The Fall of the House of Usher (The Fall of the House of Usher) is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1839.  The story begins with an unnamed narrator who arrives at the home of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining about an illness, and asking for his help. When he arrives, the narrator observes a thin crack that extends from the roof at the front of the building to the lake.

Although Poe wrote this tale before the invention of modern psychological science, Roderick’s condition can be described according to his terminology. It includes a form of sensory overload known as hyperesthesia (hypersensitivity to textures, light, sounds, smells and tastes), hypochondria (an excessive worry or temerity in having a serious illness), and acute anxiety. It is revealed that Roderick’s twin sister, Madeline, is also ill and falls into cataleptic trances, as if in a state of death. The narrator is impressed by Roderick’s paintings, and tries to cheer him up by reading with him and listening to his improvised musical compositions on guitar. Roderick sings “The Haunted Palace,” then tells the narrator that he believes that the house in which he lives may be alive, and that this sensitivity stems from the arrangement of the house and the surrounding vegetation.

[ad_1]

The correct answer to the question is : 1) Converting energy and 2) Within about twenty years, natural gas forms.

EXPLANATION:

In coal fired power plants, the water is heated by burning coals. The heat produced in this process will convert water into steam. The steam is allowed to rotate the turbine. The turbine is attached to a generator which converts the kinetic energy of the steam into electric energy due to electromagnetic induction.

Hence, turbine helps in converting energy.

As per the second question, Walt listed the steps that occur during the formation of natural gas.

The natural gas is produced due to natural phenomenon. For this, millions of years are passed. So, it is a long range process in which the fossil of animals and planets buried beneath the surface are converted into natural gas under high pressure.

Hence, the mistake of Walt is  that the natural gas is produced withing twenty years.

The correct answer is – D) the Middle Ages.

With the final blow to the Roman Empire, and the fall of Rome itself, the Roman Empire came to an end (the Western one that is), and its end marked the beginning of another era, the infamous Middle Ages. The Middle Ages were a time period when the church was having the main say in politics, science, wars, daily lives of the people, in big portion of the European continent.

As the church (a product of Rome itself) rose to power, lots of things changed on the continent, and this period is also referred to as the ”Dark Ages”, and this is due to the restrictions of the church that were forbidding any science outside of their own circles, critical thinking and expression was often punished with death, and everyone that opposed the strict rules of the church was sentenced to prison, torture, or was murdered. It set the continent backwards for few centuries.
