Which of the following best describes the 1957 events at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas? Governor Faubus resisted the school’s integration with National Guard troops, and President Eisenhower sent federal troops to enforce integration. Under Governor Faubus, Little Rock police first fought, then enforced, the order to integrate the school. President Eisenhower sent National Guard troops to resist the school’s integration, but Governor Faubus obtained a court order to dismiss them. President Eisenhower and Governor Faubus worked together to make the integration process run as smoothly as possible.


The correct answer is  Governor Faubus resisted the school’s integration with National Guard troops, and President Eisenhower sent federal troops to enforce integration.

After the Supreme Court case Brown vs. Board of Education (1954) the federal government called for the desegregation of schools all across America. This included Central High School. Central High School was previously an all white school. After Brown vs. Board of Education ruled segregated schools illegal, 9 black students enrolled at Central High School. These individuals would be known as the Little Rock 9.

After enrolling, these students tried to attend Central High School but were kept out by the national guard troops. This was due to Governor Fabius’s disagreement with integrating white and black schools. However, President Eisenhower enforced the federal ruling by sending in federal troops to enforce the new ruling, allowing black and white students to attend the same school.

Which of the following was one of the ways Louis XIV increased his power as an absolute monarch? He encouraged religious freedom. He restricted government jobs to the aristocracy. He fought a series of successful wars across Europe. He brought nobles under his control.


Industrialization led to rising imperialism because 
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

The correct answer to this would be:

“inability of many medium ground finches to feed on large,
hard seeds”

The medium ground finches feed on seeds. However, the birds
have two variations in the bill shape: some birds have wide, deep bills while others
have thinner bills. The large-billed birds feed more proficiently on large,
hard seeds, while the smaller billed birds feed more proficiently on small,
soft seeds. The reduction in number started in 1977, when a drought period
altered vegetation on the island. Due to this event, the number of seeds
declined dramatically; the decline in small, soft seeds was larger than the
decline in large, hard seeds. The large-billed birds were able to endure better
than the small-billed birds thus resulting in decline in number.

Read the passage. a new mayor for brookside citizens of brookside have many choices to make in the upcoming election. however, no ballot measure is more important than whom we select as our next mayor. although we have two qualified candidates to vote for, we believe that rochelle jackson has proven herself to be a stronger candidate than suzette muñez. during her eight years as a city council member, ms. jackson fought for tax cuts that resulted in an 18% growth in local business. she also managed the development of our new regional airport and sponsored three new after school programs for brooksides youth. the new laws proposed by ms. jackson have brought about a 31% drop in crime over the last five years. while ms. muñez has an impressive track record as a large business owner, we feel that she lacks the public service experience needed to serve as mayor of brookside. we fear her decisions would better serve big business and not the needs of our citizens and local businesses. we at the brookside gazette strongly urge you to elect rochelle jackson as the next mayor of brookside. this passage is an example of what type of newspaper article?


Let’s say that,

Manufacturing Overhead Cost = MOC

A= Division A

B = Division B

Working Time = T          (either
machine hours or labor hours)

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

 

Overhead Allocation Rate (B) = $360,000 / 21,000 labor
hours

Overhead
Allocation Rate (B) = $17.14 per labor hour

Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle. Desperately he struck out with strong strokes after the receding lights of the yacht, but he stopped before he had swum fifty feet. A certain cool-headedness had come to him; it was not the first time he had been in a tight place. There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht, but that chance was slender, and grew more slender as the yacht raced on. He wrestled himself out of his clothes, and shouted with all his power. The lights of the yacht became faint and ever-vanishing fireflies; then they were blotted out entirely by the night. Rainsford remembered the shots. They had come from the right, and doggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. For a seemingly endless time he fought the sea. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more and then— What details from the narration show that Rainsford is a rational individual who does well in moments of danger? Check all that apply. 1) He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out 2) Desperately he struck out with strong strokes after the receding lights of the yacht 3) A certain cool-headedness had come to him; 4) There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht 5)[D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength.


C) A certain cool-headedness had come to him

E) [D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength

Both of these sentences show that Rainsford can easily handle stress. The first sentence says that he was overcome by “cool-headedness”. In the second stanza the speaker uses words like “doggedly, slow, deliberate and conserving his strength.” In all of these instances Rainsford was in danger,; however, he was able to keep calm and think clearly about what he should do next.

What was the main reason that Athens and Sparta fought the Peloponnesian War?


The correct answer is: “It is essential to the country’s efforts to combat terrorism.”

The USA Patriot Act was enacted in 2011 during the presidency of George W. Bush and after the September 11 attacks, aiming to enhance the strenght of the national security.

It has been really polemic as its provisions include authorization of indefinite detentions of immigrants, permission to search homes or businesses even without the knowledge of the occupant and permission to search phones, email or financial records. This is why the third and fourth options proposed cannot be correct answers.

Many legal challenges have been brought to court against this act, and some of its provisions have been considered unconstitutional.

The aim of the act was always to fight terrorism, not war prevention therefore the second option cannot be true. The first option is the one that best qualifies, although many would argue that this measure is not very good and something else should be done to fight terrorism.

Dear Cousin Lulu,

I am glad that we are finally able to be in contact after so many years apart. I regret not leaving with you when you decided to run away up North. Things here have been a bit different from the last time you were here. After I was able to become free with time. In other words, I paid for my freedom. I learned how to read and write at a school. The school is only for former slaves who were able to become free and the teachers and former slaves that learned to read and write in the North.

I was able to find you by asking around. I was lettings others know of that I was looking for someone with your name who had moved to New York during the time that you left. After two years of searching, and sending letters to a few other Lulu’s I was able to find you. I even found another cousin of ours and we were planning on getting together in the upcoming month.

The ideals of liberty, justice and equal rights for all are some of the main values that make our country what it is. These values are important for all citizens, and as Americans, we should strive to uphold them in all our interactions.

There are many ways in which you probably do so without realizing. For example, you must likely uphold the value of liberty when you support freedom of speech or freedom of the press. Moreover, you support justice when you respect the rule of law and believe that people should be punished for their crimes. Finally, you probably support equal rights when you believe that people of all races and gender should be able to access services such as education.

Which of the following is an accurate statement about George Bernard Shaw’s personal beliefs? A. He felt that all art is good because it reflects the individual B. He deemed vegetarianism to be a foolish and unhealthy fad. C. He believed wars should only be fought if a greater good is at stake. D. He thought that capitalism, as an economic system, is highly problematic.


25. The incorrectly punctuated sentence is the third option. This is because the comma is unnecessary and chops up the sentence. You should only put a comma before a conjunction (words like and, but, or) when there is a list (like in the last option) or when the words following the conjunction include a noun and verb (like the second option).

26. The correctly punctuated sentence is the second option. With dates specifically, there will always be a comma between the day and year (canceling out the first and third options), and if the sentence continues after the year, then there needs to be a comma after the year (which cancels out the last option).

Name two organizations that fought to promote the cause of latino


Answer:

d. women had moved into voter and party participation.

Explanation:

The right to vote of women was proposed seriously for the first time in the United States in July 1848, at the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention, organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. One of the women who attended that convention was Charlotte Woodward, who at that time was 19 years old. In 1920, when women finally won the right to vote across the nation, Charlotte Woodward was the only participant in the 1848 convention that still lived to vote, although she was apparently too ill to actually vote.

By the beginning of the 20th century, some battles for women’s suffrage had already been won state by state. Alice Paul and the National Women’s Party began to use more radical tactics to work for a federal amendment to the Constitution: they picketed posters in front of the White House, organized large marches and demonstrations, went to jail. Thousands of ordinary women participated in these actions – a family legend is that my grandmother was part of a group of women who chained themselves to the door of a court in Minneapolis during this period.

In 1913, Paul led a march of eight thousand participants on the day of President Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration. (Half a million viewers saw them, two hundred were wounded in the violence that was unleashed.) During Wilson’s second inauguration in 1917, Paul led a march around the White House. Facing a well-organized and well-financed anti-shipwreck movement who argued that most women did not really want the vote, and that they were not qualified to exercise it anyway.
