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”

The cartoon below titled “Where the Blame Lies” was created in the late 1800s: A political cartoon shows Uncle Sam standing on a platform. A man stands next to Uncle Sam and points out to a crowd of people. They appear to be entering the United States after exiting ships in New York Harbor. The people seem to be walking in a wild manner. The Statue of Liberty and the American flag can be seen in the background. © The Granger Collection/Image Quest 2012 Which political issue does this cartoon illustrate? the effects of unchecked immigration the health effects of the factory system the effects of low American wages the effects of prohibiting alcohol on society


The correct answer is A) the effects of unchecked immigration.

The political that this cartoon illustrates is the effects of unchecked immigration.

The cartoon describes a situation of immigrants. So, it illustrates the effects of unchecked immigration with so many people entering the United States with no order at all. The situation shows the risk of a lack of immigration policy could have on the country and the possible consequnences of such a few restrictions to enter the U.S.

The sign that says “Baggage the only Requisite”, showed how easy was for people to enter the United States. And the pice of paper on the floor, besides Uncle Sam, with the names of “Mafia in New Orleans”, “Anarchist in Chicago”, and “Socialist in New York”, is an example of the strong journalism critic of that time.

Declaration of Independence “all men were created equal” and have an inherent right to “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.”Premise *needed for deductive argumentthe truth, value, or belief from which we deduce an argument. Satisfies 2 things: general enough that audience is likely to accept it, thus establishing common ground, and specific enough to prepare way for argumentation to follow


Answer:

The Declaration called for a range of women’s rights, including the right to equal education, the right to vote, and the right to equal treatment under the law.

Explanation:

The Declaration of Sentiment, written and lectured by Stanton itself in the Seneca Falls Convention, has a great historical significance as it holds that all women and men are created equal, thus, they deserve to enjoy the same rights (especially the right to equal education, to vote, and to equal treatment under the law). The document also insists upon the institution of a new government that doesn’t oppose to those ends, it presents a list of several ways women have been oppressed by men and it affirms that women will use whatever resource they have to effect their object: equal rights. Certainly, the document and the convention served as an incentive action to continue to campaign for women’s rights at states and national events.

It is important to amend the Constitution to keep it relevant. D. Average citizens cannot be trusted with political power.

Posted in History

Answer:

The correct answer is B. The Preamble of the Constitution express that the Constitution itself is a guiding document that will improve the country.

Explanation:

The Preamble to the United States Constitution is a brief introductory statement of fundamental declarative and introductory principles of the Constitution. It establishes general terms and objectives that the courts use as a faithful reference to the intentions of the Founding Fathers on the meaning of the Constitution and what they expected it should achieve.

The phrase “WE, THE PEOPLE” is of singular importance because it stipulates that the power and authority of the federal government of the United States of America does not come from the various states or the people of the various states, but from an entity that is identified as the People of the United States of America, with the Constitution serving as a compact or contract between the People of the United States of America, the various states, and the new entity: the federal government of the United States of America.

What leadership characteristics did George Washington demonstrate during the Revolution? How did he affect the outcome of the Revolution? Consider his role both as a political and a military leader during the American Revolution.

1 Persevering. He remained with the matter until there was some resolve. He clearly sought after a positive result since he remained on a leader when things were at their darkest. He could have been home at Mount Vernon making himself and his significant other more agreeable from his homesteads and speculations. 

2 He kept his own gathering. I mean he wasn’t inclined to requesting that lesser officers share his wretchedness or happiness or anything. He kind of left us with the possibility of a solitary pioneer as a national picture. He was correct by chance as administration by advisory group is just a formula for calamity. 

3 His technique was splendid. He outmaneuvered the best armed force on the planet, their soldiers of fortune and pioneers. Obviously he had been a military pioneer for over 25 years when the Revolution broke out. His first significant order was a Virginia civilian army walk against the French at present-day Pittsburgh. He lost, at the same time, clearly, he learned. 

4 While not driving by board of trustees he did enroll and utilize a portion of the finest military personalities in Europe. Lafayette, Pulaski and von Steuben are however just the better known Europeans who came to battle the Brits and advance the American cause. Washington was never excessively glad, making it impossible to request and acknowledge some assistance.

Under the allotment system, many American Indian families did not farm and ignored the government policy. were successful farmers and competed with white settlers. tried to farm communally and established their own system. made an effort to succeed at farming but often failed.

Under the allotment system, many American Indian families made an effort to succeed at farming but often failed.

The allotment system was created by the Dawes Act. The Dawes Act was an Act of Congress of February 8, 1887, regulating in the United States the distribution of land to Native Americans, in the Indian Territory that will become Oklahoma in 1907. It carried the name of the Massachusetts senator Henry L. Dawes, his principal initiator. The law was amended in 1891 and in 1906 by the Burke Act.

The law pursued two main objectives: first of all, the community structure of the Indians was to be broken and the Indians thus integrated into American society. The Indians should become farmers. As such, according to official opinion, they would need far less land than they claimed for their traditional non-sedentary lifestyle as hunters and gatherers. The Indians themselves fought mostly against a life as a farmer, especially those of the northern Plains. These saw the farm work as unworthy and restrictive. Another advantage of the parcelling saw the government in the liberated surplus land, which it could sell at a profit to whites. Overall, the Indians lost thereby 36 million hectares of a total of 55 million hectares in 1887.

Throughout history, how have cultures used texture to create unique works of art? What types of mediums have been most commonly used?

The texture is nothing more than a surface of a form constructed from elements such as dots, lines, shapes, arrangements, patterns, curves, and other special effects that result in a volume which can be rough, smooth, soft, viscous, shaggy, silky, wrinkled, scratchy, thick and oily, sometimes even more than just one feature. The texture has a strong sensory power and for that reason, many cultures used the texture to create works of art that could convey a feeling, a sensation or a message, involving the vision and the touch that elevated the meaning of the work.

The most used textures were those created from mosaic, sculpture in the round, sculpture in relief and stained-glass.

A state constitution states that it has been written to establish justice, maintain order, and perpetuate liberty. This closely aligns with which section of the US Constitution? A. The Preamble B. the Bill of Rights C. the articles on separations of powers D. the article on the legislative branch


Answer:

D.Prolonged conflict between Jewish and Palestinian people inhabiting the land

Explanation:

The history of Israel as a State begins with its proclamation of independence in 1948. This historical fact was achieved after more than sixty years of political and diplomatic efforts by Zionism to establish a sovereign nation in what they considered to be their homeland , the ancient Land of Israel, also known as Palestine from the time of the Roman Empire.

Immediately after the declaration of the State of Israel, Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Iraq and Lebanon invaded the new country. In a bloody and desperate war characterized by the use of improvised weapons and skillful tactics, the Jews were able to repel the Arab attack and even advanced occupying new territories. A ceasefire was signed by both sides, establishing that the occupied territories would remain in the hands of Israel. As a result of this war, Israel occupied the territory assigned to it by the United Nations, plus a good part of the territory assigned to the Arabs and the western part of Jerusalem (Israel increased its territory by almost 50%). The western area of ​​the Jordan (known as the West Bank after the Jordanian annexation) was occupied by the Arabs, occupied by Transjordania and the Gaza Strip, occupied by Egypt.

In 1949, under the auspices of the United Nations, four armistices were signed in Rhodes (Greece) between Israel and Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, but in practice they never succeeded in solving the problem of Palestine and the violence in this region continues until our days.

The Statue Of Liberty is on our school seal. Elmer’s tie was askew, and his shoes needed to be polished. “Rip Van Winkle,” by Washington Irving, is a very imaginative story.

I guess this also depends on what the “Advanced Reading Skills” lessons talks about, but don’t think of it as “really hard”! Work on one word, one phrase, one sentence, and you’ll start making progress. =) 

In general, when translating, the first thing you’ll have to do is to understand the paragraph, but you’re right, this isn’t that easy a paragraph to translate. You could use an English dictionary, or a bilingual dictionary (http://www.nciku.comis good for English-Chinese) to help you. While you’re doing this, try to pick out important words and translate them first, and see if you could understand what each sentence means. 

Sometimes, words may have multiple meanings or be used as metaphors – for example, “amputated” means “having been cut off”, but in your 2nd sentence, it means that the poet should not be condemned and criticised to the point where he is treated as having no value. 

Finally, after you’ve translated the text, don’t forget to read it to check if it makes sense in the language you’re using – and if it makes for smooth reading!
