Read the excerpt from Chapter 5 of Wheels of Change. These traits led commentators to worry that the differences between the sexes were being blurred, a fear that was reinforced as the four newest states—Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho—granted women the right to vote in the 1890s. Would the bicycle help bring about a new kind of equality between men and women? Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her colleagues certainly hoped so. At any rate, the image of a female cyclist quickly became associated with efforts to win more rights for women. What conclusion does Macy draw in this synthesis of ideas? Women were granted the right to vote in four states as a direct result of the bicycle’s invention. Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women. Stanton and her colleagues hoped women cyclists would join their fight for women’s rights. Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho were home to the highest percentage of women cyclists.


Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women.

At the end of the passage, usually where a conclusion is stated, it says that the image of a female cyclist was becoming a symbol for women’s rights. The passage does not tell the reader anything about the percentage of women cyclists. While it does tell the reader about women being granted the right to voted, the connection between that and the bicycle is that it blurs the differences between the sexes. Both men and women were riding bicycles and they were both voting. There is also nothing in the passage about women cyclists as a group joining or not joining the women’s rights movement.

Why did the people in neighboring regions learn to fear Genghis Khan’s relatively small armies?


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:16 AM

Genghis Khan was ruthless and gruesome. His strategy was to scare people into submission. When they were scared, they would surrender easily and it would save Khan’s army much money, time and resources. however, in order to do so, Genghis would ruthlessly slaughter men, women, and children to prove his point.

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


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.

Answer:

The correct match would be:

  1. Cerebrum – responsible for speech, emotion, and memory
  2. Cerebellum – responsible for muscle coordination and balance
  3. Brain stem – responsible for involuntary muscles like the heart

The brain can be divided into three main parts:

1. Cerebrum: It is the largest part of the brain. It can be divided into two halves termed as right and left hemisphere. It can also be divided into broad regions termed as lobes (frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobe).

The main functions of the cerebrum include control of voluntary muscles, interpret information received from sensory receptors (touch, vision, hearing, vision), reasoning, learning, emotions, and speech.

2. Cerebellum: It is located below the occipital lobe in the back of the brain. The main function of the cerebellum is the coordination and precision of voluntary actions and the maintenance of posture and balance of the body.

3. Brain stem: It connects the brain with the spinal cord. It consists of the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. It helps in controlling and coordinating involuntary movements like the heart, lungs, swallowing, breathing, sneezing et cetera.

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.

An evolutionary psychologist would say that a man should fear his partner’s sexual infidelity because:


There is no definite account on what prompted the Western
Media to announce the arrival of a sexual revolution, but many modern
historians theorized that media outlets played a very big role in spreading the
information about sexual revolution and spreading new ideas that were
considered radical.  Many believed that
the start of sexual revolution that caught the attention of the people,
including media perhaps was the distribution of birth control pills during
1960s and the improvement of obstetrics which helps increase the life
expectancy of women due to the reduce number of women who died due to childbearing.

Since the TV, which was a new mass communication device
during this era together with other media outlet like radio and magazine can
easily broadcast information in just a few seconds; millions of people were
able to know more about these events.

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.

1. This type of immunity would be passive artificial immunity. Passive artificial immunity is the injection of serum that makes human body invulnerable to specific diseases. But the effect of this serum is temporary. To refresh its effect you should to make the injection again. Sure, you can do it only in advice of your doctor.

2. 

 According to the information given above, I think that the nurse is aware that the most serious toxic effect of acute acetaminophen overdose is hepatic necrosis. Hepatic necrosis is a serious liver failure that can be caused by toxic injuries of acute acetaminophen (or others medicines) overdose.

3. In my opinion, nurse should respond like this: “

It is normal for children this age to regress during a stressful event like a hospitalization. Try to calm down your child and say her that everything is going to be okay.”

4. The most appropriate response by the nurse is: 

“Tattoos are invasive and there is the potential for disease with their application.” Girl should find tattoo parlor with appropriate conditions to make tattoo without a risk getting infected.

5. Referring to Women’s Health Initiative study, hormone replacement therapy has a potential risk of breast cancer

 and myocardial infarction and stroke may outweigh the potential benefit of alleviating symptoms associated with menopause. 

6. I am completely sure that the most likely cause is 

fibrocystic disease, which results from hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle. Sure it’s necessary to undergo medical examination to prevent the possible breast cancer.

7. I think that the cause of her vaginitis is antibiotics. Long antibiotic therapy eliminate bacilli that create healthy vaginal environment. This can lead to growth of microorganisms which can lead to vaginitis.

8. According to the information given above, the nurse should say that girl needs to avoid prolonged sun exposure to prevent a common side effect of this medication. Prolonged sun exposure can cause scorches.

9. The nurse should recommend him to recheck his blood pressure within two months. Hypertension is more prevalent in black communities and blood pressure 150/90 mm Hg is not normal. So it would be necessary to check his pressure at least every 2 months.

10. As far as I remember “

A spinal cord injury patient has no awareness of the need to void” is considered as a reflex (neurogenic) incontinence. Reflex incontinence is caused by a dysfunction in the detrusor muscle.

11. I am definitely sure that the nurse should encourage the patient to see her gynecologist as soon as possible. In 

perimenopausal period all women should make annual checkups that include vaginal examination.

12. In my view, when planning this patient’s care, the nurse should prioritize the r

isk for infection related to suppressed bone marrow function. There is a risk of leukopenia and subsequent infection because doxorubicin suppresses bone marrow function.

13. I think that the most appropriate explanation of the disease sounds like this: “

Tissue similar to the lining of the uterus has implanted in areas outside the uterus.” A benign lesion grows aberrantly anywhere in the pelvic cavity outside the uterus.

14. I am pretty sure that w

hen the needle is inserted and the mass is no longer palpable, this mass may become cystic and was ruptured when the needle was inserted. 

15. 

The nurse recognizes in this situation the boy’s attempt to master the primary developmental step of school age, which is called industry. Industry is a sense of learning how to master your skills. In this situation, boy wants to show the nurse his skills and then to master them because he wants to become a doctor.

The given variables are:

MOC (A) = $160,000

MOC (B) = $360,000

T (A) = 30,000 machine hours

T (B) = 21,000 labor hours

We are asked to find for the predetermined Overhead Allocation
Rates. This is calculated using the formula:

Overhead Allocation Rates = MOC / T

 

Overhead Allocation Rate (A) = $160,000 / 30,000 machine
hours

Overhead
Allocation Rate (A) = $5.33 per machine hour

Okay, I will give you ideas. Lets make this guy’s name Marsel, and lets say he is single, as he is around 25, and lives with his parents, and works as a surgeon. He is a tall, thin man who is a genius. His income is higher than average, and is at the higher end of the income spectrum. His business is to treat patients by cutting open their body and performing the necessary operations. He has to go to perform surgery at any time he is called, however likes spending time with his parents teaching them about the human body. His attitude toward religion is neutral, he practices it, but doesn’t have much time to practice it. Toward politics he doesn’t care except for picking the candidate of the party that he prefers. Toward people in general he isn’t very social, but if he sees someone hurt, he has sympathy towards them. He doesn’t mind animals, and doesn’t care much about them, except if the animal needs something.

For the son, he is a short and chubby 3 year old boy who is curious to see new things and is playful. He makes his mom take care of him a lot.

PS: Since this doesn’t make sense, if you have to, you can say that he is married.

What group of people did not stand up for what they believed in due to fear of being beaten or attacked? Moderate Whites Blacks


The activist that initiated the idea of Black Power to describe a more radical approach to civil rights was Stokely Carmichael.

Stokely Carmichael considered the concept of Black Power as a form of solidarity among individuals within his political movement. With his conception and articulation of the word, he considered that his movement was not only a movement against racial segregation, but to combat the widespread racism among American society. Again and again he insisted: For the last time, “Black Power” means black people coming together to form a political force that elects representatives or forces its representatives to defend their interests.

Although the concept of Black Power was vague and interpreted differently by those who used it, from the businessmen who used it to push black capitalism to black revolutionaries who wanted to end capitalism, the idea of Black Power exerted a significant social influence. It helped organize self-help groups in the black community and the formation of institutions that did not depend on whites. It was used for the creation of black culture studies programs in institutes and universities, to mobilize black voters and to choose black candidates, as well as to foster pride and racial self-esteem.

Andrey and I will meet at the restaurant before we go to the concert. After eating, we will go to the concert hall, which is near the Arts Center Building.

Hence, two parts of speech which will complete the sentence is a pronoun, preposition.

Pronouns refer to the words which replace nouns in a sentence. For example, Alan is a good boy. Alan works hard. Alan is punctual.

Hence, instead of a repetition of noun we use pronouns,

Alan is a good boy. He works hard. He is punctual.

Therefore, in the above sentence ‘Andrey and I’ is replaced by ‘we.’

Prepositions are used to express the relationship between two or more places, persons or time or express a relationship in time or space.

In the above sentence preposition ‘near’ indicates the location of the concert hall.

The characteristics of each poem are:

  • “I, Too” by Lansgton Hughes: 1, 6

1- This poem is a reference, and a sort of answer, to Whitman’s poem “I Hear America Singing.” In his poem, Whitman talks about how every American -mechanics, carpenters, boatmans- is singing. However, he makes no mention of black people. This is why the poem is entitled “I, Too,” to express that Hugues, an African American man, is still an American.

6- This poem does not have specific rhyme scheme or meter. Therefore, it is written in what is known as “free verse.”

  • From the Dark Tower” by Countee Cullen: 2, 3, 4, 5

2- The social injustice paradox means that social injustice is rooted in the lack of access to education, money and power, and that the solution lies in institutions which are always supported by those with money and power. This poem refers to this paradox because it refers to white people oppresing African Americans and not allowing them to be rightfully repaid for their work.

3- This poem is written in iambic pentameter and has a traditional (ABAB) rhyme scheme.

4- The poem symbolizes the great efforst black people did while working, only to have their profits taken by their white maters.

5- The whole poem is filled with an angry tone. Lines such as “Not always bend to some more subtle brute;” clearly express the resentment and repudiation she feels for white people.

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.”

3. 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.

Explanation:

This is the statement that most foreshadows the fact that the narrator will feel regret for something that he has done to Doodle. In this excerpt, the narrator tells us that he believes there is some element of cruelty within him, and that at times, this cruelty was shown in his dealings with Doodle, as he could be mean to him. This suggest that the author will be cruel to Doodle later in the story.
