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.

Identify the type of behavior exhibited in the examples described below. Support each answer with a short explanation. Cuckoos often lay their eggs in the nests of other birds, which raise the young cuckoo as their own. However, as the cuckoo matures, it takes on the behavioral characteristics of its biological parents rather than its surrogate parents.


When red crosses with white flowers to give pink flowers, we are looking at incomplete dominance, i.e. the offspring is a blend (pink) of the parents’ characteristics (red or white).

Since we’re given in the question two pink flowers crossed to give 25% red, 25% whit and 50% pink, we would be thinking of a punnett square between RW and RW, to give

RR RW

RW WW

Since both parents are RW, that makes both parents heterozygous.

Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. What is the best way to paraphrase these lines? Two ancient feuding Verona families shed more blood. Two families fight over whom pretty Verona shall marry. Two feuding families in Verona have an ancient grudge. Two old families in Verona fight and get themselves dirty.


Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

When Germany offered to surrender, President Wilson would not agree to it unless something happened first. What was it? Kaiser Wilhelm had to abdicate his throne. The German army had to lay down its arms. Alsace-Lorraine had to be returned to France. Germany had to scuttle its entire navy.

The President of the United States has a very demanding job. The Constitution outlines many of the duties of a president, but modern society and technology have also changed and expanded the expectations placed on a president in some ways. These are seven of the major areas of responsibility that presidents manage. 

First responsibility is being the Chief of State. This role requires a president to be an inspiring example for the American people. In some nations, the chief of state is a king or a queen who wears a crown on special occasions, celebrates national holidays, and stands for the highest values and ideals of the country. As the American Chief of State, the president is a living symbol of the nation. It is considered a great honor for any citizen to shake the president’s hand. An example of this was when President Obama gives the National Humanities Medal to Stanford literary scholar Ramón Saldívar in honor of his cultural explorations of the U.S-Mexico border.

Second is being the Chief Executive wherein the president is the “boss” for millions of government workers in the Executive Branch. He or she decides how the laws of the United States are to be enforced and chooses officials and advisors to help run the Executive Branch. An example of this was when President Bush nominated Representative Porter J. Goss, the longtime chairman of the House of Intelligence Committee, to head the Central Intelligence Agency.

Third is being the Chief Diplomat where the president decides what American diplomats and ambassadors shall say to foreign governments. With the help of advisors, the president makes the foreign policy of the United States. One example of this was when Michelle is pretty in purple as the Obamas welcome Japanese Prime Minister and his wife for glittering White House state dinner wherein Obama gave a humorous speech thanking Japan for ‘karate, karaoke, anime and emojis’.

Fourth is being the Commander-In-Chief. The president is in charge of the U.S. Armed Forces: the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps. The president decides where troops shall be stationed, where ships shall be sent, and how weapons shall be used. All military generals and admirals take their orders from the president. An example was when President Harry S. Truman ordered the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Fifth is being the Legislative Leader. Only Congress has the actual power to make laws, but the Constitution gives the president power to influence Congress in its lawmaking. Presidents may urge Congress to pass new laws or veto bills that they do not favor. For example, President Franklin Roosevelt indicated in a signing statement in 1943, during World War II, that he felt Section 304 of the Urgent Deficiency Appropriations Act of 1943 (ch. 218, 57 Stat. 431, 450 (1943)) was unconstitutional, but that he had no choice but to sign the bill “to avoid delaying our conduct of the war.” 

Sixth is being Chief of Party. In this role, the president helps members of his or her political party get elected or appointed to office. The president campaigns for those members who have supported his or her policies. At the end of a term, the president may campaign for reelection. For example, President Obama announced that Senator Judd Gregg, Republican of New Hampshire, is his nominee for commerce secretary.

And lastly, being the Guardian of the Economy. In this role, the president is concerned with such things as unemployment, high prices, taxes, business profits, and the general prosperity of the country. The president does not control the economy, but is expected to help it run smoothly. An example of this was when Labor leaders meet with Obama wherein Officials in Washington are hoping to help stimulate economic investment and job creation in Detroit.

Short poem on brave soldiers

Hear them marching
Down the street
Hear there hearts beat

They, brave soldiers,
Risk their lives
To save our country and their families

Oh, them boys and men
Saying to their homes goodbye
I shall save our country

Veterans Day is a day
To remember these brave soldiers
And if you just listen carefully to the waves of our flag

You’ll still hear them marching and their hearts beating 

I hope this helps! 😀

Read the excerpt from The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. “We have common friends,” said Mr. Utterson. “Common friends,” echoed Mr. Hyde, a little hoarsely. “Who are they?” “Jekyll, for instance,” said the lawyer. “He never told you,” cried Mr. Hyde, with a flush of anger. “I did not think you would have lied.” “Come,” said Mr. Utterson, “that is not fitting language.” The other snarled aloud into a savage laugh; and the next moment, with extraordinary quickness, he had unlocked the door and disappeared into the house. Which statement best describes how Mr. Hyde is characterized in the excerpt? The author uses direct characterization to show readers that Mr. Hyde is a sinister man. The author uses direct characterization to show readers that Mr. Hyde has a strange appearance. The author uses indirect characterization to show that Mr. Hyde is lonely and misunderstood. The author uses indirect characterization to show that Mr. Hyde is rude and uncivilized.

The author uses indirect characterization to show that Mr. Hyde is rude and uncivilized.

Indirect characterization is when the author shows the traits of the character through his or her speech, thoughts, actions, effects on others, and looks. For example a character who looks unclean with ragged torn clothing would be characterized as poor or homeless. The author doesn’t specifically say this, but rather shows it through details. Direct characterization is when the author specifically tells you a character trait. For example, Sam was always dishonest; he never told the truth to anyone about who he really was. In this example Sam is being directly characterized as dishonest. In the excerpt, Mr. Hyde is never directly characterized. His traits are never explicitly stated. Instead the reader must infer them which is indirect characterization. In this excerpt, Mr. Hyde is not shown as being lonely or misunderstood. He’s just plain rude.

Plato’s The Apology is a record of the discourse Socrates makes at the preliminary in which he is accused of not perceiving the divine beings perceived by the state, developing new gods, and debasing the young of Athens.
