Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.
OR“Poor devil, there’s something in that. We are right down sorry for you, but we—well, hang it, we don’t want the small-pox, you see. Look here, I’ll tell you what to do. Don’t you try to land by yourself, or you’ll smash everything to pieces. You float along down about twenty miles, and you’ll come to a town on the left-hand side of the river. It will be long after sun-up then, and when you ask for help you tell them your folks are all down with chills and fever. Don’t be a fool again, and let people guess what is the matter. Now we’re trying to do you a kindness; so you just put twenty miles between us, that’s a good boy. It wouldn’t do any good to land yonder where the light is—it’s only a wood-yard. Say, I reckon your father’s poor, and I’m bound to say he’s in pretty hard luck. Here, I’ll put a twenty-dollar gold piece on this board, and you get it when it floats by. I feel mighty mean to leave you; but my kingdom! it won’t do to fool with small-pox, don’t you see?”
“Back, John, row back!” one of them said. They started rowing backward. “Keep away, boy, keep to port. Darn it, the wind is blowing that raft right toward us. Your pap’s got SMALLPOXcontagious and deadly disease that was wiped out in the 20th centurysmallpox, and you know it! Why didn’t you just say so? Do you want to spread it to everyone?
“Well, you’ve got a point. Poor soul. We feel pretty sorry for you, but we… well, darn it, we don’t want to get smallpox, you see. Look here, I tell you what we’ll do. Don’t try to land the raft on the shore by yourself; you’ll just smash it to pieces. Just float along down the river about twenty miles, and you’ll come to a town. Ask for help, and tell them your folks have got the chills and a fever. Don’t be foolish again and let people guess what’s wrong with your family. Now, we’re trying to help you, so just be a good boy and take our advice. Put twenty miles between yourselves and us. It wouldn’t do any good to land the raft over where that light is. It’s only a lumber yard. I’ll bet your father’s poor, and I’m sure your family is having a tough time. Here, I’m putting a twenty dollar gold piece on this board. Grab it when it floats by. I feel pretty bad leaving you, but my God, we just can’t mess around with smallpox, you see?
The options of the question are, A) by explaining that world leaders are doing all they can to tackle climate change now. B) by quoting Winston Churchill to show that he also believes that climate change is a serious issue. C) by comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past. D) by showing the differences in the effects of climate change and World War II.
The correct answers are C) by comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past.
The excerpt that develops Gore’s theme that climate change is a problem that must be addressed is “by comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past.”
Al Gore develops the urgency of attending the issues that climate change brings when in the excerpt he makes reference to the comparison made by Winston Churchill to Hitler’s threat: “They go on in strange paradox,, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent”. This way, Al Gore is comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past.
While when you use a fitness center, you have access to more machines, and more resources, when at home, you are more likely to have the amenities you would like, and more focus on your exercise, and less on others. As far as cost, if you are looking to buy machines, then it would be much cheaper to go to a fitness center, but if you are looking to do exercises with items you may already have, or other cheap items, then it would, in that case be more cost effective to work out at home.
The American participation in the Vietnam War was very different from its involvement in the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
In the Vietnam War, the United States carried out direct participation, with first-hand military planning and execution and large-scale attacks. Some 60,000 Americans died in the conflict, of about one million who participated.
In contrast, in the Bay of Pigs Invasion, American participation was indirect. That is, the attack was planned and the troops trained by American forces, but these were made up of Cuban exiles, not American soldiers. In addition, it was a small-scale attack, both because of the low number of men involved and because of its short duration.
