Which act by the British government caused the american colonists to write the declaration of independence and separate from great Britain? A) the destruction of a ship containing a load of British tea. B) the killing of several colonists by a group of British soldiers. C) the outlawing of slavery in all the american colonies. D) the requirement that the colonists pay taxes on British goods.

[ad_1]

The right answer is “D) the requirement that the colonists pay taxes on British goods.”

The historic event known as the Boston Tea Party occurred on December 16, 1773 in the city of the same name, in the United States. The action was a protest carried out by the settlers of the country against the high taxes levied by the British government. The incident is considered a key event in the unfolding of the American Revolution.

The men who participated in the protest were imitated in many other cities of the country and ended up being known as the first heroes of the movement for the independence of the United States. After the revolt, the English government severely punished the inhabitants of Boston, closing the port of the city. Three years later, 13 colonies declared independence and founded the United States of America.

Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.

Answer:

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

The north atlantic treaty organization is an example of ________. mutually assured destruction a bilateral treaty a multilateral treaty the domino theory deterrence

[ad_1]

Answer:  Checks and balances

Details:

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution lays out the process for treaties made by the United States with other nations.  That section of the Constitution says of the President, “He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.”

The advice and consent of the Senate typically comes after the treaty has been negotiated by the President.  As reported by Justia (a legal information site), “The Senate’s role in relation to treaties is essentially legislative in character.”  In a Supreme Court decision in 1936, this was affirmed by the Court’s decision, which said, that the President “alone negotiates. Into the field of negotiation, the Senate cannot intrude” (United States v. Curtiss-Wright Export Corp., 1936).   However, for the treaty to become active, the President must secure approval by the Senate, with a two-thirds majority vote, as stipulated by the Constitution.

An article on the United States Senate’s own webpage concerning “Advice and Consent of the Senate” notes that this provision in the Constitution was connected to the overall idea of separation of powers that the founding fathers had in mind.  In The Federalist Papers (#75, #76), urging ratification of the Constitution,  “Alexander Hamilton argued that the provision afforded a necessary means of checks and balances.”

The error in grammar: it help

Correct verb form: it helps

Explanation:

In the simple present tense, third-person singular pronouns, like she, he and it, use conjugated verbs formed by the base form of a verb and the affix -s, -es, or -ies. For example: helps, thinks, cries, watches. In the excerpt provided, the error is in the verb help because it is not correctly conjugated for the pronoun it: it is missing an s at the end.

Hurry help me !!! Species are disappearing at an accelerating rate through human action, primarily habitat destruction but also pollution and the introduction of exotic species into residual natural environments. I have said that a fifth or more of the species of plants and animals could vanish or be doomed to early extinction by the year 2020 unless better efforts are made to save them. . . . As the last forests are felled in forest strongholds like the Philippines and Ecuador, the decline of species will accelerate even more. In the world as a whole, extinction rates are already hundreds or thousands of times higher than before the coming of man. They cannot be balanced by new evolution in any period of time that has meaning for the human race. What message does the author convey in this excerpt? Humans need to take action to end further destruction of the natural environment. In the coming years, humans will put forth stronger efforts to save plants and animals. The extinction of plant and animal species is problematic in the Philippines and Ecuador. In recent years, the extinction rate for many animal species has significantly increased.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

Telephones, fax machines, and electronic mail transmit messages at many businesses.

The subject of a sentence is the noun that is doing the action.  For instance, in the following sentence “boy” is the subject:  The boy kicked the ball.  A sentence, however, can have more than one subject, and this will be indicated usually with the conjunction “and.”  When a sentence has more than one subject performing the same action, this is called a compound subject as in The boy and girl laughed.  With that in mind, we can see that the final sentence of the sentences you provided has three subjects (telephones, fax machines, and electronic mail) that are performing the action “transmit.”

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky. In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay …flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene. De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse, And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands, The gaunt grey rocks between; And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire Struck blue on the spindrift hoar – Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm. Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction. This poem is no walk in the garden, but a story of the wildness of natural processes. I NEED HELP WRITING THIS IN MY OWN WORDS PLEASE HELP

Arizona and South Dakota.

Arizona is the state with probably more Native American reservations than any other. We could name a couple such as the Navajo Nation, Tohono O’odham Nation, San Carlos Apache Reservation, Hopi Tribe, Colorado River Indian Tribes, among many others. A fun fact is that with such an amazing diversity of Indian culture, Arizona has one-fourth of its territory occupied by more than 20 reservations!

Second to Arizona, South Dakota is also one of the states with an outstanding abundance of Indian American reservations, among which we can find, the Pine Reach Indian reservation, the Flandreau Indian reservation, the Rosebud Indian reservation, and others.
