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”
PLEASE HELP Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. “I incline to, Cain’s heresy*,” he used to say. “I let my brother go to the devil in his quaintly ‘own way.'” In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of down-going men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer’s way. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Mr. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsman, the well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who encountered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend. For all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. *The biblical story of Cain and Abel is a story about two brothers who gave offerings to God. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Jealous, Cain killed his brother. When God asked Cain where Abel was, Cain said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” By saying this, Cain implied that what his brother did was his own business. (Genesis 4:1-16) What is significant about “Cain’s heresy” in this passage? A.It shows that Mr. Utterson is a deeply religious and righteous person. B.It shows that Mr. Utterson tries not to judge others or get in their business. C.It shows the Mr. Utterson wants to steal from other people’s businesses. D.It shows that Mr. Utterson does not believe in any kind of religion at all.
What event marked the begining of the shang dynasty?
#1: Germany was angry that they had to pay huge amounts of money, and lost some land
#2: Japan didn’t get the things they really wanted
#3: Even though Russia was on the winning side, because they had to drop out (because of a civil war), they also lost land
#4: Italy was extremely disappointed of the amount of land they gained.
Because of these points, World War 2 started. But it wasn’t just these. There were other problems too. But these have to do with the Paris Peace Conference.
hope this helps 😀

1) Water has very high specific heat.
2) It expands when it freezes
3) ability to dissolve in ionic substances
4) Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid.
1) Water molecules due to their high specific heat , undergo relatively less increase in temperature after absorbing heat. So they prevent their adjoining area to experience sharp increase in temperature.
2) Water is an example which expands on freezing. In it , large spaces are left between molecules when it cools. It happens because hydrogen bonds prevent any two molecules to come very close thereby creating gaps. This gap is filled up when ice melts , which results in overall reduction in volume of water.
3) Uneven distribution of charge results in water molecules becoming polar in nature . A polar substance can be dissolved in polar solvents only.
4) It is due to property of surface tension. Property of surface tension results due to molecules of water near the surface experiencing a net downward force due to hydrogen bonds . It is due to fewer hydrogen bonds made by them.

f. scot fitzgerald critiques the idea of the american dream (like many other classic authors) through the situations of the characters.
jay gatsby is able to aquire an enormous amount of wealth throughout his life, but he is unable to penetrate the upper class. he ends up being killed after tangling in that crowd for too long
possibly mention the context of the 20s. a tumultuous time following WW1, increase in immigration as well as womens rights and the massive economic boom. (with the crash looming in 1929) there was a belief that anyone could ‘strike it rich’ like gatsby did.
george and myrtle wilson were middle class people looking to improve their life, and achieve the american dream
daisy is the ultimate, perfect example of the american dream.
the darkest secret at the end, gatsby’s wealth didn’t come from work, it came from a life of crime. fitzgerald is basically saying american dream is actually a lost promise.
also underlying greed strewn throughout the novel, and affairs which tear couples apart.
‘But I didn’t call to him for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone–he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way, and far as I was from him I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward–and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock.’
very key symbol of the green light, and gatsby reaching out to something (the american dream) that he cannot aquire.
hope that helps 🙂 feel free to disagree and develop your own opinions on this subject.
if you want more info, there are plenty of articles full of quotes, examples and ideas on the internet. reading critical perspectives of the great gatsby are also good if you’re willing to look 😀
So, if you are told that one term of the polynomial is 9 x ^ (negative something), it is necessary that the number after the negative sign be negative, given that negative times negative is positive.
Therefore, the only possible option from the answer choices is the option 3) -9.
Answer: 3) – 9
The correct answer is B. As a result of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, nearly 40 countries ended aboveground nuclear tests.
The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty is an international treaty, signed for the first time on September 10, 1996, which prohibits the conduct of nuclear tests in and by the signatory countries.
The treaty was opened for signature in New York on September 24, 1996, when it was signed by 71 states, including five of the eight with nuclear capacity. Currently, the CTBT has been signed by 178 countries out of a total of 195, and ratified by 144. On January 16, 2007 ratification of the treaty was completed by all European countries, with the ratification of Moldova.

In this lesson, we have two important words, me and lo. So me is the indirect object pronoun for the first person singular. An Indirect Object is the person, animal or thing that receives the action of a verb, that is, the recipient of the direct object. On the other hand, the word lo represents the direct object pronoun for the third person singular. A direct object pronoun replaces a direct object, that is a noun that directly receives the action of a verb in a sentence.
The words that most closely matches the denotation of the bold words are:
Her fervent piety and watchful uprightness made it impossible to see her without thinking and feeling—”that woman is a Christian.” [diligent]
The most interesting feature of my history here was my learning to read and write, under somewhat marked disadvantages. [considerable]
Words like these, I observed, always troubled them; and I had no small satisfaction in wringing from the boys, occasionally, that fresh and bitter condemnation of slavery, that springs from nature, unseared and unperverted. [pure,uncorrupted]
Fredrick Douglass wrote his own account of life in which he mentioned about the ills of slavery and about the hardships which the slaves had to undergo. He had tried to expose the cruelty of slavery which doesn’t spare anyone born in a black family. He points out the idea that a slave is a form of property owned by the master and he possesses full control over him.
The problem tells you the bulletin board has sides that are 4 and 3 feet, making this a rectangle. The formula for finding the area of a rectangle is:
A = lw therefore, multiply 4×3 to find your area, which is 12 ft (it’s important to note what measurement you’re using).
The index cards are 4×6 inches, so use the same formula to find the area of an individual index card.
4×6=24, so one index card takes up 24 inches of space.
To find out how many you can get on the board, you will divide the space of one index card by the space of the board. HOWEVER, the board is currently measured in feet, and our cards are measured in inches. We have to convert the board’s area into inches.
12 inches = 1 foot. We have 12 ft of board. So multiply 12×12 to get the area of the board in inches.
12×12=144 < there is 144 inches of open space on the bulletin board.
Now jump back to the area of one index card: 24. Now we must divide 144 by 24 to see how many card will fit.
144/24=6 < this is the number of cards that can fit on the bulletin board.
Answer: 6 cards are needed to cover the board.
HURRY QUICK QUESTION! The gap between rich and poor has become more marked, even in the most economically developed nations. True False
Prevent African Americans from exercising their right to vote.
The 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (1870) granted the right to vote to all Americans regardless of their race, for the first time, which included African American, who had been harshly discriminated and mistreated for decades. This was a big step to put a halt on discrimination and gain equality of rights. However, in reality, many white Americans, especially Southerners, fiercely opposed to fully include black people as equal in society. Consequently, they began to enact a series of acts that prevented them from exercise their rights.
Some of the many legislation that Southern states passed during this “Jim Crow era” to prevent African Americans from exercising their right to vote was to impose poll taxes, which sometimes black people could not pay, and to force them to take literacy tests as a requirement to vote, which, again, they often failed.
1.-ancient climate clues that showed continents had once been in different locations
-the same rock layers and fossils appeared on two widely separated continents
-One was that the continents fit together so well if you squeezed them bank together. You can see it on any globe. The parts fit like a puzzle.
2.studies of ancient Climate
3.Geology of continents
2.The difference between continental drift and plate tectonics is that the theory of continental drift states that the world was made up of a single continent.The theory of plate-tectonics, on the other hand, states that earth’s surface is broken into numbers of shifting plates or slabs.
3.The tectonic plates are made up of Earth’s crust and the upper part of the mantle layer underneath. Together the crust and upper mantle are called the lithosphere and they extend about 80 km deep.May 21, 2008
4.The continental crust is the layer of granitic, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks which form the continents and the areas of shallow seabed close to their shores, known as continental shelves. It is less dense than the material of the Earth’s mantle and thus “floats” on top of it.

6.Trenches are formed by subduction, a geophysical process in which two or more of Earth’s tectonic plates converge and the older, denser plate is pushed beneath the lighter plate and deep into the mantle, causing the seafloor and outermost crust (the lithosphere) to bend and form a steep, V-shaped depression.
8. Hawaii sits on a hot spot, not the edge of a tectonic plate like other island chains..the movement of the plate caused and continues to cause the Hawaiian chain

The correct answer is – D) the Middle Ages.
With the final blow to the Roman Empire, and the fall of Rome itself, the Roman Empire came to an end (the Western one that is), and its end marked the beginning of another era, the infamous Middle Ages. The Middle Ages were a time period when the church was having the main say in politics, science, wars, daily lives of the people, in big portion of the European continent.
As the church (a product of Rome itself) rose to power, lots of things changed on the continent, and this period is also referred to as the ”Dark Ages”, and this is due to the restrictions of the church that were forbidding any science outside of their own circles, critical thinking and expression was often punished with death, and everyone that opposed the strict rules of the church was sentenced to prison, torture, or was murdered. It set the continent backwards for few centuries.
The human resources department rejected Fatima’s application for a sabbatical because she had only worked for a year.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a landmark legislation in the United States that prohibits unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, blood banks, in the workplace and facilities that serve the public in general (“public places”).
Once the Law was put into practice, its effects were far-reaching and had a huge long-term impact throughout the country. Discrimination was prohibited in public schools, in government, and in employment, invalidating the laws of Jim Crow in the southern United States. It became illegal to force the segregation of races in schools, housing, or hiring employees.
The powers that were granted to enforce it as law were initially weak, but were supplemented for years later. The congress exercised its authority to legislate in various parts of the United States Constitution, principally its power to regulate interstate commerce under Article One (Article 8), its obligation to guarantee citizens the equal protection of laws under the Constitution. Fourteenth Amendment and its duty to protect voting rights in the Fifteenth Amendment.
