In the story “To Build a Fire,” what information did the man ignore? Even though the creeks freeze solid, liquid water exists near springs. Always make camp and build a fire while there is still daylight. Always take along survival gear and wear protective clothing. No one must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty degrees below zero.

No one must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty degrees below zero. I would say this is the main lesson to learn about this Jack London story which shows that nature can be cruel and unforgiving and at 50 degrees below zero it is nothing to fool with. If there are two people, one can help the other and warn say of snow which may fall down and douse the fire and also both can have matches to start a fire and they can discuss the best course of action in any situation which presents itself such as trusting the ice not to break over a creek for example.

Read the excerpt from President Eisenhower’s State of the Union address on February 2, 1953. A cardinal ideal in this heritage we cherish is the equality of rights of all citizens of every race and color and creed. We know that discrimination against minorities persists despite our allegiance to this ideal. Such discrimination—confined to no one section of the Nation—is but the outward testimony to the persistence of distrust and of fear in the hearts of men. This fact makes all the more vital the fighting of these wrongs by each individual, in every station of life, in his every deed . . . I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces. What is the president’s purpose for including these details? to inform his listeners about laws in the District of Columbia to inform his listeners about the work of the US military to persuade his listeners of the importance of equal rights to persuade his listeners to vote for him for president

[ad_1]

to persuade his listeners of the importance of equal rights

The excerpt begins with the statement about cherishing equal rights of all citizens. It then talks about how discrimination is still occurring. He then pledges to end segregation in all places where he has the power to do so: Washington D.C., Federal Government, and the Armed Forces. The excerpt does not include and laws, work the military has done, or calls for presidential votes.

There exists a similarity transformation that maps ΔABC to ΔA′B′C′. The measure of angle A is 68°, and the measure of angle B is 46°. What is the measure of angle C in degrees?

[ad_1]

Answer:

C. Yes, because the population values appear to be normally distributed.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given is a graph which shows the distribution of values of a population

The graph has the following characteristics

i) Bell shaped

ii) symmerical about mid vertical line

iii) Unimodal with mode = median =mean

iv) As x deviates more from the mean probability is decreasing and also curve approaches asymptotically the x axis

Hence we find that the curve is a distribution of normal

Option C is right

C. Yes, because the population values appear to be normally distributed.

Areas near oceans or large lakes tend to have more moderate climates than do areas far from large bodies of water. Which of these statements best explains this observation? Hydrogen and oxygen atoms share electrons in a water molecule. Lakes and oceans contain dissolved solids. Water has a very high specific heat. Water produces buoyant forces. Question 2(Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) A scientist discovers a new substance. The molecules of the substance form hydrogen bonds with each other. When the molecules lose a lot of energy, the hydrogen bonds hold them relatively far apart. Based on this information, what can the scientist infer about the substance? It expands when it freezes. It is highly colored. It exists only as a gas. It does not dissolve ionic compounds. Question 3(Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) Which of the following properties of water is due primarily to the uneven distribution of charge between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms? its color its taste its ability to dissolve ionic substances its ability to produce buoyant forces Question 4(Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) A drop of water placed on a smooth, dry surface will form a dome-shaped droplet instead of flowing outward in different directions. Which of these best explains this observation? The bonds between hydrogen and oxygen atoms are very strong. The electrons in the atoms attract the electrons in the other atoms. Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid. Water molecules near the surface produce more buoyant force than water molecules within the liquid.

The gravitational force Fg between two objects is given by the equation:

Fg=(G*m₁*m₂)/r₂, where G=6.67*10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻² is the gravitational constant, m₁ and m₂ are the masses of the two bodies and r is the distance between those bodies. 

Due to the gravitational attraction the pencil and the eraser will attract if we there is no friction on the surface. 

m₁=10 g=0.01 kg is the mass of the pencil
m₂=20 g=0.02 kg is the mass of the eraser
r=2.5 cm = 0.025 m

First we calculate the Fg:

Fg={(6.67*10^-11)*0.01*0.02}/(0.025²)=2.1344*10^-11 N

To get the velocity v of the pencil:

v²=2as, where a is the acceleration of the pencil and s is the path. In our case s=r so we can write:

v²=2ar

a=Fg/m₁= 2.133*10^-9 m/s²

v²=2*(2.133*10^-9)*0.025=1.0665*10^-10

v=√(1.0665*10^-10)=1.0327*10^-5 m/s

We have the velocity and the acceleration, so we can calculate the time t with the equation:

t=v/a=(1.0327*10^-5)/(2.133*10^-9)=4841.6 s

1 hour has 3600 s so when we divide time t in seconds by 3600 we get time T in hours:

T=t/3600=4841.6/3600=1.3449 h. 

So the time for the pencil and eraser to touch is T=1.3449 hours. 

Also time T can be expressed like T= 1h and 20 mins and 41.64 s

The name of the culture that exists within the dominant culture is?

[ad_1]

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

Stock A:

Zachary bought 40 shares of stock A at $80 a share. So he paid 40*80 = 3200 dollars for the shares of stock A.

He then sells stock A at $83 a share, so 83*40 = 3320 is the amount he gets back. The net result is 3320-3200 = 120. Divide this over the initial cost to get 120/3200 = 0.0375

So the rate of return (ROR) for stock A is 3.75%

—————————————

Stock B:

total cost = (number of shares of stock B)*(cost per share of stock B)
total cost = 80*160
total cost = 12800

Then he sells stock B at $166 a share

80*166 = 13280

He nets 13280 – 12800 = 480 dollars from stock B

The ROR for stock B is 480/12800 = 0.0375 = 3.75%

So far, we see that the ROR for both stocks (A and B) are the same at 3.75%

—————————————

Bond:

par value = $1000
coupon = (0.0525)*(1000) = $52.50

ROR = (coupon)/(price) = 52.50/775 = 0.0677 = 6.77%

—————————————

In summary, we have

ROR for stock A = 3.75%
ROR for stock B = 3.75%
ROR for bond = 6.77%

Stock A and B have a tie for the lowest ROR

so that’s why the answer is choice 1) Stock A and Stock B

Please answer this question in 4-5 sentences with important details and information. Do you believe slavery still exists in the world? Why or why not? If it does exist, what form might it take?

[ad_1]

In order to identify the direct object (D.O), you should be able to identify verb patterns. In “with the advent of the space shuttle program, (…)”, the main verb is “to spend”.

“To spend” is a transitive verb which selects two complements: an NP subject of the sentence and an NP object, in this case (somebody spends something). Therefore, the NP NASA functions as the subject of the sentence; while, the direct object is represented by the NP “more time on military projects”.
