What clues tell the reader that “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is written in the first-person point of view?A.The main character jumps quickly from thought to thought. B.The main character uses the pronouns I and my. C.The main character refers to her husband as John. D.The main character often feels tired and lazy.

[ad_1]

Answer: B.The main character uses the pronouns I and my.

In The Yellow Wallpaper, we know that the text is written from the first-person point of view because the main character uses the pronouns “I” and “my” when telling the story. Telling a story from the first-person point of view has several advantages. It can allow the reader to get to know the thoughts of a character more deeply. It also allows imagery to be more vivid, and the character’s motivations and desires to be better explained.

Read this excerpt from “A Horseman in the Sky” by Ambrose Bierce. Which sentence or phrase in the passage reveals how the father feels about his son’s decision to join the Union army?

[ad_1]

Well, go, sir, and whatever may occur do what you conceive to be your duty. Virginia, to which you are a traitor, must get on without you. Should we both live to the end of the war, we will speak further of the matter. Your mother, as the physician has informed you, is in a most critical condition; at the best she cannot be with us longer than a few weeks, but that time is precious. It would be better not to disturb her.”  

So Carter Druse, bowing reverently to his father, who returned the salute with a stately courtesy that masked a breaking heart, left the home of his childhood to go soldiering. By conscience and courage, by deeds of devotion and daring, he soon commended himself to his fellows and his officers; and it was to these qualities and to some knowledge of the country that he owed his selection for his present perilous duty at the extreme outpost.

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.

Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Nonsense,” laughed Rainsford. “This hot weather is making you soft, Whitney. Be a realist. The world is made up of two classes—the hunters and the huntees. Luckily, you and I are the hunters. Do you think we’ve passed that island yet?” Read the excerpt of Zaroff speaking from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure. I am strong. Why should I not use my gift? If I wish to hunt, why should I not? I hunt the sc*m of the earth—sailors from tr*mp ships—lascars, blacks, Chinese, whites, mongrels—a thoroughbred horse or hound is worth more than a score of them.” How do these excerpts show the difference between Rainsford and Zaroff? a) Rainsford believes that animals are inferior to humans and therefore deserve to be hunted, while Zaroff feels this way about other humans. b) Rainsford has a deep feelings and sympathy for the prey he hunts, while Zaroff has no feelings or sympathy for his prey at all. c) Rainsford believes that it is acceptable to hunt all things as long as they are weaker, while Zaroff hunts only human beings. d) Rainsford hunts for pure amusement, while Zaroff believes he is performing a service by hunting the “sc*m of the earth.”

Answer:

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.

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.

However, they also point out that it’s OK to have an unusual kind of family structure. On One Tree Hill, for example, Lucas is being raised by a single mom, and he has a close relationship with his uncle, but his dad isn’t completely out of the picture. On a teen show such as iCarly, on Nick, Carly’s older brother plays the role of guardian, because her dad is in the Air Force. Her mom is never really spoken of. 

2. I do feel that most of the portrayal of family is accurate, on TV. Modern shows have steered away from the conventional “Mom, Dad, 2.5 kids plus dog” formula, which is accurate, because not all TV watchers are fortunate enough to have that kind of situation. See above answer for specific examples. 

3. I think that a definite negative theme in today’s modern shows, revolve around views on alcohol and drugs. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own views, but more often than not, after a character drinks, or does something they shouldn’t, they panic about what their parents will do once they find out. This panic may lead them to increasingly dangerous situations. For example, in OTH, Nathan is drinking, and then goes out to drive his girlfriend’s car. When he crashes it into another car, he realizes the trouble he is in, and leaves the scene of the accident; thus potentially getting him in even more trouble. I realize that TV is in no way an accurate depiction of all life aspects, and it is “only TV”, but I think Nathan should have faced the consequences right away, because by running from the scene, he only put himself in danger of being caught, or arrested. Again, though, I’m reading too much into it.

When a person is experiencing heartburn, he or she feels a burning sensation in the throat and midchest. Think about the structures of the digestive system. What most likely causes the burning sensation? The muscle at the end of the esophagus is not able to close, which allows stomach acid and digested food to go back up into the esophagus. The villi in the small intestine are producing extra acid that is then concentrated at the pharynx. The esophagus goes into muscle spasms while the salivary glands produce excess acid. Too much water absorption in the large intestine disrupts the pH of the digestive system, causing acid to reenter the stomach.

A counterclaim, in my own words, is a rebuttle to any comments one might have against your Claim and one of it’s reasons.

So! in order to fit this into your dilemma, you’re going to want to ask yourself
“What might someone have to say against my reason? (Pick one)” 

Then you should start the draft of your counter off by putting *If my readers where to question with “well what if___?” then i’d simply give them a reason / solution like—[COUNTER CLAIM]*

Now, onto my ideas for a good counter / rebuttle..

If they we’re to question your claim… (your choice!) …
along the lines of; why stop the use of pesticides? They prevent produce waste. Simply put: “Remember the ultimate goal of having a honey bee farm, to harvest honey, not to kill off pests with detrimental pesticides.
So if investment into pesticides is so important to the extent of having to use such risky methods. Why not invest in a more beneficial method? Such as sheltering the bee’s with an insect proof structure? Or do away with the whole idea of outdoor honey farms, and make a systematic facility with flowers, bees, sunlight, etc.”

Just did that by simply asking myself those questions above, you got this.

I guess this also depends on what the “Advanced Reading Skills” lessons talks about, but don’t think of it as “really hard”! Work on one word, one phrase, one sentence, and you’ll start making progress. =) 

In general, when translating, the first thing you’ll have to do is to understand the paragraph, but you’re right, this isn’t that easy a paragraph to translate. You could use an English dictionary, or a bilingual dictionary (http://www.nciku.comis good for English-Chinese) to help you. While you’re doing this, try to pick out important words and translate them first, and see if you could understand what each sentence means. 

Sometimes, words may have multiple meanings or be used as metaphors – for example, “amputated” means “having been cut off”, but in your 2nd sentence, it means that the poet should not be condemned and criticised to the point where he is treated as having no value. 

Finally, after you’ve translated the text, don’t forget to read it to check if it makes sense in the language you’re using – and if it makes for smooth reading!

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.
