“That you want us to call him Nikhil.” “That is correct.” Mrs. Lapidus nods. “The reason being?” “That is our wish.” “I’m not sure I follow you, Mr. Ganguli. Do you mean that Nikhil is a middle name? Or a nickname? Many of the children go by nicknames here. On this form there is a space—” “No, no, it’s not a middle name,” Ashoke says. He is beginning to lose patience. “He has no middle name. No nickname. The boy’s good name, his school name, is Nikhil.” Mrs. Lapidus presses her lips together and smiles. “But clearly he doesn’t respond.” “Please, Mrs. Lapidus,” Ashoke says. “It is very common for a child to be confused at first. Please give it some time. I assure you he will grow accustomed.” Which statement best explains how Lahiri explores conflict brought on by globalization? 1.Lahiri uses descriptions to compare elements of traditional schooling in different cultures. 2.Lahiri uses the characters’ actions to show how people from different cultures can work together to resolve conflicting values. 3.Lahiri uses the setting to highlight her opinions on the educational systems in both the United States and India. 4.Lahiri uses dialogue to show how people from different cultures can have difficulty relating to each other’s experiences.


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:00 AM

The answer is D. Lahiri want’s to bring attention to how much cultural tension there is between an Indian transfer student and a typical American school. In this  example the conflict isn’t between the child and the teacher: but the communication barrier they have over his name.

Read the following excerpt from Leslie Marmon Silko’s story “The Man to Send Rain Clouds.” They turned off the highway onto the sandy pueblo road. Not long after they passed the store and post office they saw Father Paul’s car coming toward them. When he recognized their faces he slowed his car and waved for them to stop. The young priest rolled down the car window. “Did you find old Teofilo?” he asked loudly. Leon stopped the truck. “Good morning, Father. We were just out to the sheep camp. Everything is O.K. now.” “Thank God for that. Teofilo is a very old man. You really shouldn’t allow him to stay at the sheep camp alone.” “No, he won’t do that any more now.” What does this dialogue reveal about the priest’s standing within the community? He is a trusted leader of the tribe. He is considered to be an outsider. He is a spiritual guide to the people. He is disliked by most of the people.


Answer: The right answer is the B: He is considered to be an outsider.

Explanation: Leon and his brother-in-law, Ken, had found Teofilo’s corpse under a tree. However, when Father Paul, a Franciscan priest, asked them if they had found him, Leon did not mention that Teofilo had died. He did not openly lie to the priest, but he avoided mentioning Teofilo’s death to him. This shows that Father Paul was not considered part of the tribe, but an outsider that was trying to “impose” his faith and his religious practices on a community that already had its own.

Read the following dialogue: Mark: I deserve a raise! Boss: Why do you deserve a raise? Mark: Both Rachel and Soledad make three dollars more an hour than I do, so I should make the same as they do. Boss: Both Rachel and Soledad have worked here longer than you and always receive top evaluations. Mark: Well, then I deserve a raise because I have a wife and two children at home, one of whom has a very expensive medical condition. Boss: No. Unfortunately, Mark's argument lacks proof that he deserves a raise. In fact, Mark is often late and rarely completes his work on time. But Mark still really needs a raise. Mark just learned that his boss loves the Boston Red Sox and hates the New York Yankees. How can Mark use this knowledge and alter his argument to convince his boss to give him a raise?

Mark: Well, then I deserve a raise because I have a wife and two children at home, one of whom has a very expensive medical condition. Boss: No. Identify at least one logical fallacy Mark presents to his boss. Explain why his arguments do not persuade his boss to give him a raise.


Explanation:

One logical fallacy that Mark makes to hi boss is that He has two children at home and one of the children is suffering from serious medical conditions where Mark has to spend more money on his treatment. This is one wrong move in support of his argument to raise his salary.

          Moreover Mark arguments to provide a raise is not persuasive  because his explanation does not have any logical reason as to why he deserves a raise. Merely because his colleagues, Rachel and Soledad earns more than Mark does not imply that Mark should also be paid equal or given a raise.

Which of these should be avoided when writing a research paper? Select all that apply. slang first or second person technical language formality dialogue contractions third person precision jargon


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 🙂

The words from this paragraph from The Calypso Borealis that best show Muir’s naturalist philosophy are the last ones:

“Welcomed as friends”

In the whole passage, the author shows us how deeply connected the character was with nature. It is very clear when Muir says: “With one of these large backwoods loaves I was able to wander many a long wild fertile mile in the forests and bogs, free as the winds, gathering plants, and glorying in God’s abounding inexhaustible spiritual beauty bread.”

Winds, plants, storms the woods, everything was perceived by Muir as loving friends cohabiting the beautiful world.

The oxymorons in Romeo’s dialogue emphasize the anger he feels toward a certain woman. his certainty about his romantic fate. the extreme emotions that he is feeling. his confusion about Benvolio’s advice.


Answer: Ivan Ilyich knows quite well and definitely that all this is nonsense and pure deception, but when the doctor, getting down on his knee, leans over him, putting his ear first higher then lower, and performs various gymnastic movements over him with a significant expression on his face, Ivan Ilyich submits to it all as he used to submit to the speeches of the lawyers, though he knew very well that they were all lying and why they were lying.

In these lines, we can see that Ivan Ilyich is a changed man. The sickness he suffers has allowed him to reflect on his past life, and on all the things he used to value. He now realizes how wrong his values were, and how silly society can be. This hipocrisy is highlighted in these lines. Ivan realizes that so many things that form part of a “respectable” life are deceptions. This is the case with doctors, and with lawyers. And even though he always knew it, he still took part of the activities, because this is what was expected from him.
