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.

His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton.

Channing had been working for the lumber company for six years. He had taken extra shifts, arrived early, and trained new employees. Now that the position of assistant manager was opening up, he hoped all of his dedication and hard work was worth it. What is the central idea of this paragraph?

[ad_1]

Answer:

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

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.

When the Texan revolution broke out and the war for independence began in 1835, Goliad was seen as a solid military stronghold because there was an important military supply barracks in the Fort of the Bay, built by the former Spanish Army.

Goliad was located halfway between the port of Copano, to which the Mexican army sent by sea soldiers, ammunition, armament, garrisons destined for the Alamo de San Antonio de Béjar, which functioned as the main political center of Texas.

When Goliad was taken in the second battle of the war, this forced the Mexican army to send its provisions by land, which would severely hamper logistics and would be key in the capture of General Santa María and consequent conclusion of the conflict and declaration of Independence winning the Texas Army.

Answer:

The GI Bill contributed to the growth of professional and white-collar jobs by granting US veterans benefits to attend universities.

Explanation:

The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, also known as G.I. Bill, was a federal law through which millions of American war veterans from World War II received a series of benefits, including opportunities for university studies and retraining programs.

Thanks to G.I. Bill, war veterans from World War II got considerably greater opportunities than veterans from World War I. The law is also considered by historians and economists to have contributed significantly to the United States as a nation of knowledge during the post-war period and to the long-term economic growth.
