The Spartans played the game known as “Discus” more than any other party of Greek life. Their people were very gruel and focused mainly on the objectives of; competitive sports, violence, and gore. What can be learned from this expert is that the Greek people were competitive and enjoyed violent games and sports for entertainment.
C. someone who believes the kings power comes from the military.
Knights, were armored military units, sometimes on horses that are usually in an army to help protect their leader. IF a king doesn’t have the support of troops, he literally cannot reign. So you will need the militaries help
When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” Which words in the passage support King’s purpose of making listeners believe that they deserve equality? Check all that apply. “architects” “magnificent” “heir” “promise” “guaranteed” “concerned”
In hone of his works “The Leviathan”, he a considers citizens to be “wicked” and that they should not be trusted to govern. Hobbes thought a monarchy would be the best fit for government. The answer is C

The Articles of Confederation (1781), the first U.S.’s Constitution, was characterized for establishing a very weak central government consisting only of a Congress, it didn’t even have a President, and for giving more power to the states, who had sovereignty.
Under the Constitution, the Congress had the power to make treaties and alliances, coin money, pay the war debts, maintain an army, appoint military officers, control Indian affairs, and to regulate foreign affairs, war, and the postal service. However, it did not have the power to levy taxes to the states to pay for those things, which eventually bring the newly independent America to an economic disaster
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.
2) The sentence that contains a misplaced modifier is sentence D.
3) The sentence that uses a colon correctly is sentence A.
A misplaced modifier is a word, phrase, or clause that is improperly separated from the word it modifies. 2D contains a misplaced clause modifying the wrong noun. In order to fix the error, you should place the clause next to the noun it is supposed to modify or describe. The revised version of the sentence would be as follows: Tori threw all her clothes that she had worn in the hamper.
Then, as regards 3A, it can be said that it contains a colon used correctly because it has been used to introduce a list, the list of things an assistant can do. What is more, the first item is not capitalized.
In a democracy, the Ruler’s source of power is the people.
The representatives have the legitimacy of the popular vote to make decisions on behalf of their representatives, the people.
The parable of the American Constitution makes this clear: Power emanates from the people.
“We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, guarantee inner tranquility, promote common defense, general well-being, and secure the benefits of freedom for ourselves and our descendants, promulgated and established the Constitution for the United States of America”.
It is often said that you should never divide a word, even if you know you can get away with it, but if you must, then do it in a sensible place. Which I believe is a statement by Vincent McNabb.
Thus, to answer your question,
I believe the answer is; D: When you are dividing words, be sure to break up the letters in a syllable by separating them with hyphens.
I may be incorrect, however, C, is illogical because, in the use of dictionary hyphenation, you’d cut off the definition, leaving it improper. A, seems illogical because, an example of this would like something like, “t-ackle” or, “tackl-e” which doesn’t necessarily look right. And B, is common sense.
Analysis of Burger King’s “Whopper Freakout” Marketing Campaign and the Pros and Cons of Viral Marketing
Genius or risky? The response to this issue could go either way when you look at the advertising campaign “Whopper Freakout” by Burger King. This campaign was launched on December 9th, 2007 on Burger King’s 50th anniversary (Lenze 3). Its aim was to market the whopper burger that was Burger King’s most famous product. At the heart of the campaign was the commercial “Whopper Freakout,” which featured true clients responding to the news that the whopper burger was permanently cut off from the menu of Burger King. The commercial also sampled reactions from real customers who were offered an alternative burger from competitor brands after they had placed orders for the whopper burger from Burger King. This commercial went viral online and further its popularity was enhanced by television commercials and adverts online and in print.
The mix of internet viral and TV campaigns is indeed the genius component of Burger King’s advertising campaign “Whopper Freakout”. This marketing strategy captured larger markets than online or television campaigns, each used on their own, would capture (Eick). The TV commercial was watched by thousands and thousands of individuals and the marketing message reached not only the typical whopper bugger fan but also so many other individuals who could possibly start to prefer the whopper burger to other brand burgers. Burger King’s utilization of the “Whopper Freakout” television commercial in strategic slots such as during breaks in major sports tournaments was another genius move that captured the attention of numerous Burger King’s male customers and sports enthusiasts who were fans of the whopper bugger.
Another wonderful move by Burger King was the internet campaign in the form of the viral video. Although quite different in concept than other viral videos, the “Whopper Freakout” online campaign generated over 1.3 million views of the original 7.5 minute video (Eick). Reactions from real customers in the video “hit home” more for viewers whose reactions largely ranged between increased loyalty to the whopper bugger and interest in it from audiences who had not previously ordered the whopper bugger (Eick).
It is also clear that Burger King’s “Whopper Freakout” campaign also hit the mark when buzz created from the television and online campaigns served to generate more interest on the video posted on Burger King’s whopperfreakout website and on YouTube. The success of this marketing campaign can also be seen on analysis of how popular online searches for the keywords “whopper burger” and other words related to this product were in the period following the launch of the campaign. When considering online statistics, this marketing campaign is easily termed as brilliant based on how its online popularity, soon after the campaign was launched, ranked higher than the online popularity of one of the 2008 U.S top presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton, at the same period of a peak political event. The hits for the “Whopper Freakout” video on whopperfreakout.com were ranked above the hits on hillaryclinto.com from people searching for information on this presidential candidate (Eick).
Could the marketing campaign of Burger King have advertised the whopper burger so much on adverse evaluation to the loss of popularity of other products in its chain? There is a chance that this could have been the upshot of the “Whopper Freakout” campaign. It could also demonstrate that Burger King accomplished its marketing objective of demonstrating that the whopper burger was essential to American food culture.
The “Whopper Freakout” campaign by Burger King gave viral marketing a whole fresh significance and what it can do for a company and its products. Viral marketing has its pros and cons from both the Burger King case and the entire marketing viewpoint. Viral marketing is a great way for a business to gain exposure beyond its popular markets. Through the sharing of viral marketing messages online, a business can gain new attention from customers who were unfamiliar with it and its products. With viral marketing a business, new or old, has an opportunity to gain fast recognition in its markets (“Viral Marketing”). Social media and online messaging platforms such as emails facilitate the speedy transfer of online marketing campaigns to customers and consequently faster response in the form of sales to buyers. Viral marketing is also cost friendly compared to other marketing strategies. This is in terms of ROI, return on investment from a particular market. The Burger King case of the “Whopper Freakout” campaign generated huge returns from investment in television commercials that were paid back in addition to the following hits on online videos.
The downturns of viral marketing begin with the risk of failure and thus wastage of time and money among other resources. Viral marketing is dependent on the buzz created around online videos and ads (“Viral Marketing”). If little or no buzz is created around such, the viral marketing becomes a failure and a waste. Viral marketing depends on specific use of the right launch contacts. A business is required to have contacts that are active online, for instance, individuals who spend substantial time online and can thus spread marketing campaigns to larger populations. Failure to capture the right persons leads to failure of the campaign. Viral marketing is a tough sale that requires daily and continuous input perhaps more than any other marketing strategy. The effort and time towards this are discouraging for businesses.
If conducted well, a viral marketing campaign can be very successful. The success of the “Whopper Freakout” campaign by Burger King was based on several factors.
The creativity and boldness to put up and use an unconventional marketing campaign contributed to Burger King’s success. This aspect of the “Whopper Freakout” video is what generated the buzz and how the commercial was able to blend humor with shock captured two key elements that contribute to the success of viral marketing.
Backing up of the “Whopper Freakout” video with other marketing platforms helped to boost its popularity, not just by word of mouth but also by deliberate move by audiences to watch the video online and visit the whopperfreakout.com website.
Use of real customers was also influential in this campaign’s success. The campaign emphasized how important the whopper burger was to customers who had grown up eating it for decades. The “Whopper Freakout” campaign did not just “show” the market the place of this burger, but it made them “feel” its importance. Use of real customers also generated buzz about Burger King’s marketing campaign because it enforced authenticity of the marketing message.
However, one of the drawbacks of the “Whopper Freakout” campaign was that it highlighted the limited line of brand products from Burger King. Despite Burger King offering other burgers and sandwiches in its menu, the campaign’s message can be used to conclude that the whopper burger is perhaps not just the main Burger King product but the only brand product this business has.
Burger King’s “Whopper Freakout” full length video generated over 20 versions that were also available online after the campaign was launched. Among the versions was the “Whopper Freakout” ghetto version that featured black American customers reacting to the news that the whopper burger would no longer be served. Controversy raised from this was that Burger King’s campaign had made the move zero-in on one group of persons, hence raising racial stereotypes against the campaign (Lenze 5).
The social marketing experience using real customers was not well received by all people who reasoned that deprivation of customers of a favorite product, albeit under false pretense, was treating them as objects of mockery (Lenze 6).
From this marketing campaign, it could be right that Burger King lost some customers who after the social experiment were disappointed with the brand and that other customers were lost after still not understanding that the entire experiment was a prank.
On seeing the negative implications of the “Whopper Freakout” campaign, suggestions for how the marketing could have been made more effective are the following. The campaign would have been better if a stronger message of attracting new customers had been used instead of mainly focusing on showing current customers how devastating it would be if the whopper burger was completely removed from the menu. An alternative marketing campaign that would not have raised ethical questions about Burger King as a business entity would have been used (Kotler & Armstrong 34). Intentionally lying to customers about the whopper burger being out of the menu for good could have exhibited lack of honesty from the Burger King brand. The whopper-freakout.com website should have been left running after the “Whopper Freakout” campaign ended so as to keep the marketing informed on statistics and information about the viral campaign (Lenze 11).

“The Wife’s Lament” is one of the most famous poems in Old English. Written around the tenth century, the poem tells the story of a woman who has no love, community, or company. She tells us of her grief and her loneliness, as her husband is away. Because of her female condition, her destiny is tied to that of her husband. The exact events of her life are difficult to decipher. Nevertheless, we do know that the woman is extremely sad, and that she has led a very lonely life.
