Which of the following is an example of an open-ended question? Do you like writing poetry? Is Walt Whitman your favorite poet? Have you ever met a famous poet? How do you write a poem?

[ad_1]

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 🙂

To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

What famous teacher’s message was brought from India to China?

[ad_1]

The Great Wall of China is the longest man-made structure in the world, stretching 21,196.18km (13,170.6956 miles) long. It was built to keep out raiding parties of nomadic tribes, such as the Mongol, Turic and Xiongnu, from modern-day Mongolia and Manchuria.

The first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, is often considered the father of the Great Wall, but even before he united the nation in 221BC, individual states built walls to keep out invaders as early as the 7th Century. Qin connected, lengthened and fortified the walls to protect the northern border between 221-206BC. Subsequent dynasties, most notably the Ming, maintained and rebuilt it.

Poland Hungary Bulgaria

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Poland

In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

Hungary

In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.

Bulgaria

In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.

-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.

Which kingdom is famous for producing bronze statuary comparable to the best craftsmanship of the european renaissance?

[ad_1]

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

-From a article I have read.-

As a literary genre, a memoir (from the French: mĂ©moire from the Latin memoria, meaning “memory”), or a reminiscence, forms a subclass of autobiography – although the terms ‘memoir’ and ‘autobiography’ are today almost interchangeable. The author of a memoir may be referred to as a memoirist.

***Nature of Memoirs***

Memoirs may appear less structured and less encompassing than formal autobiographical works as they are usually about part of a life rather than the chronological telling of a life from childhood to adulthood/old age. Traditionally, memoirs usually dealt with public matters, rather than personal, and many older memoirs contain little or no information about the writer, and are almost entirely concerned with other people. They tended to be written by politicians or people in court society, later joined by military leaders and businessmen, and often dealt exclusively with the writer’s careers rather than their private life. Modern expectations have changed this, even for heads of government. Like most autobiographies, memoirs are generally written from the first person point of view.

Gore Vidal, in his own memoir Palimpsest, gave a personal definition: “a memoir is how one remembers one’s own life, while an autobiography is history, requiring research, dates, facts double-checked.” It is more about what can be gleaned from a section of one’s life than about the outcome of the life as a whole.

Contemporary practices of writing memoirs for recreational, family or therapeutic purposes are sometimes referred to as legacy writing or personal history. Such products may be assisted by professional or amateur genealogists, or by ghostwriters.

***Types of Memoir***

Memoirs have often been written by politicians or military leaders as a way to record and publish an account of their public exploits. In the eighteenth century, “scandalous memoirs”, allegedly factual but largely invented, were written (mostly anonymously) by prostitutes or libertines: these were widely read in France for their vulgar details and gossip. In another vein, the pagan rhetor Libanius framed his life memoir as one of his orations, not the public kind, but the literary kind that would be read aloud in the privacy of one’s study. This kind of memoir refers to the idea in ancient Greece and Rome, that memoirs were like “memos,” pieces of unfinished and unpublished writing which a writer might use as a memory aid to make a more finished document later on.

Women writers have been prominent amongst those combining the memoir form with historical non-fiction writing. Examples include Jung Chang’s Wild Swans. Maxine Hong Kingston’s book The Woman Warrior is an example of a memoir that combines factual material with fictional material as it tells the author’s story and the story of her family.

Some professional contemporary writers such as David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs have specialised in writing amusing essays in the form of memoirs. To some extent this is an extension of the tradition of newspaper columnists’ regular accounts of their lives. (Cf. the work of James Thurber which often has a strong memoir-like content).

Another category of memoir is the eyewitness account of history by onlookers to major events or particular eras; Slave narratives (e.g. the memoirs of Frederick Douglass) fall into this category as do those by Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel.

The correct answer is “Historical argument.”

The historian’s main point is an example of a historical argument.

A historical argument states the reasons to support a certain opinion about historical events that happened in the past. In this case, the historian who is writing the book about the Native Americans Indians’ role in building the United States, has to make the correct arguments to demonstrate its point.

The historian should include more details and factual support.

The historian has to check if the information included is supported by primary or secondary sources. It should include data, names, numbers, statistics, and valid references. This way the historian can have more detailed information for its book.

What allusion does Dr. King make in paragraph 2 of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech?

[ad_1]

You didn’t give choices, but Hamilton favored a loose interpretation of the Constitution.

Hamilton focused on what has become known as the the “necessary and proper” clause of the United States Constitution.  After enumerating a number of the powers of Congress, including borrowing money, coining money, regulating commerce, etc, Section 8 of Article I of the Constitution closes by saying Congress shall have power “to make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”  That grants Congress implied powers beyond those listed in the Constitution itself.

An example of the implementation of such implied powers in the Constitution occurred when Alexander Hamilton, as our nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury, argued in favor of establishing a national bank.   Hamilton favored a loose interpretation of the Constitution — in other words, that the Constitution allows for anything that is not strictly forbidden in what it has expressly stated.  A national bank was not strictly listed as something Congress could establish, but there was nothing in the Constitution to prohibit it.  And the “necessary and proper” clause gave leeway to create it, by the implied powers given to Congress.

Thomas Jefferson took a view opposite that of Hamilton.  Jefferson argued against the establishment of a national bank because according to a strict reading or interpretation of the Constitution, no such entity was stipulated in the document.

Llegal immigration to the United States is the violation of United States immigration laws by foreign nationals who enter the country without government permission (i.e., a visa) or, after lawful admittance, remain within the country beyond their period of authorized admission.

The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has estimated that 11.4 million illegal immigrants lived in the United States
in January 2012. According to DHS estimates, “the number of illegal
immigrants peaked around 12 million in 2007 and has gradually declined
to closer to 11 million.”[1] The DHS estimate “is in the same ballpark as several independent organizations that study illegal immigration, including Pew Research Center
(11.3 million); the Center for Migration Studies (11 million), which
studies migration and promotes policies that safeguard the rights of
migrants, and the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for low levels of legal immigration (11–12 million).”[1]

For the fiscal year 2015, DHS reported that the number of new visa overstays (not counting late departures) was 527,127.[2] For that period, DHS conducted a total of 462,463 removals and returns.[3] For the same time period, ICE removed or returned 235,413 individuals.[3] According to ICE, 166 people died while detained between 2003 and 2016.[4] As of 2015, illegal immigration to the United States continued to decline in comparison to its peak in the year 2000.[3]

In 2012, 52% were from Mexico, 15% from Central America, 12% from Asia, 6% from South America, 5% from the Caribbean, and another 5% from Europe and Canada.[5] Economic reasons are the most popular motivation for people to illegally immigrate to the United States.[6][7][8]

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

Which 16th century European humanist wrote the famous book utopia

[ad_1]

Race and racial inequality have powerfully shaped American history from its beginnings.

Americans like to think of the founding of the American colonies and, later, the United States, as

driven by the quest for freedom – initially, religious liberty and later political and economic

liberty. Yet, from the start, American society was equally founded on brutal forms of

domination, inequality and oppression which involved the absolute denial of freedom for slaves.

This is one of the great paradoxes of American history – how could the ideals of equality and

freedom coexist with slavery? We live with the ramifications of that paradox even today.

In this chapter we will explore the nature of racial inequality in America, both in terms of

its historical variations and contemporary realities. We will begin by clarifying precisely what

we mean by race, racial inequality and racism. We will then briefly examine the ways in which

racism harms many people within racially dominant groups, not just racially oppressed groups. It

might seem a little odd to raise this issue at the beginning of a discussion of racial inequality, for

it is surely the case that racial inequality is more damaging to the lives of people within the

oppressed group. We do this because we feel it is one of the critical complexities of racial

inequality and needs to be part of our understanding even as we focus on the more direct effects

of racism. This will be followed by a more extended discussion of the historical variations in the

forms of racial inequality and oppression in the United States. The chapter will conclude with a

discussion of the empirical realities today and prospects for the future.

This chapter will focus primarily on the experience of racial inequality of African-

Americans, although in the more historical section we will briefly discuss specific forms of racial

oppression of Native-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and Chinese-Americans. This focus on

African-Americans does not imply that the forms of racism to which other racial minorities have

been subjected are any less real. And certainly the nature of racial domination of these other

groups has also stamped the character of contemporary American society.

WHAT IS RACE?

Many people think of races as “natural” categories reflecting important biological differences

across groups of people whose ancestors came from different parts of the world. Since racial

classifications are generally hooked to observable physical differences between people, the

apparent naturalness of race seems obvious to most people. This conception reflects a

fundamental misunderstanding about the nature of racial classifications. Race is a social

category, not a biological one. While racial classifications generally use inherited biological

traits as criteria for classification, nevertheless how those traits are treated and how they are

translated into the categories we call “races” is defined by social conventions, not by biology.

In different times and places racial boundaries are drawn in very different ways. In the

U.S. a person is considered “Black” if they have any African ancestry. This extreme form of

binary racial classification reflects the so-called “one-drop rule” that became the standard system

of racial classification in the U.S. after the Civil War.
