Which sentence from the essay best conveys the central idea of "Life Without Go Go Boots"? The rest of my life would be endurable if I had a pair of those white, calf-high confections with little black heels I learned what my mother had been trying to tell me all along: high fashion has the shelf life of potato salad. Style is mostly a matter of acting as if you know very well what you look like, thanks, and are just delighted about it I have a feeling the day might come when my daughter will beg to be a slave of conventional fashion.

The average person falls asleep in seven minutes, but I couldn’t sleep, not after hours, and it made my boots lighter to be around his things, and to touch stuff that he had touched, and to make the hangers hang a little straighter, even though I knew it didn’t matter. How does the narration affect Oskar’s credibility in this excerpt? His insomnia renders him sleep deprived and confused. His efforts to soothe himself render him earnest and genuine. His obsessive straightening makes him seem unstable. His hopeless resignation makes him seem desperate.

[ad_1]

The correct answer is B) his efforts to soothe himself rendered him earnest and genuine.

The narrator affects Oskar’s credibility in the excerpt in that his efforts to soothe himself rendered him earnest and genuine.

The passage is an excerpt of the novel “Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close”, written by Jonathan Safran Foer in 2005. In the story, the narrator is Oskar Shell, a 9-year-old boy. In the story, Oskar finds a key that belonged to his father that was killed in the terrible incidents of the September 11 terrorists attacks in the World Trade Center, in New York. So, regarding the excerpt, the narrator affects Oskar’s credibility in that his efforts to soothe himself rendered him earnest and genuine.

Why is an ecosystem’s net primary production (NPP) lower than its gross primary production (GPP)? A.NPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers. B.NPP reflects the gain of oxygen due to respiration by the primary producers. C.GPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers.

[ad_1]

Hi. I think it would be A. Heres how NPP and GPP work:

NPP stands for net primary productivity and GPP means gross primary productivity. GPP is basically the entire amount that an ecosystem or area has. NPP is the amount minus the amount lost to the environment. You might already know that as you go up the food chain energy is lost in respiration and doesn’t get absorbed by the thing that eats it. Therefore, the NPP=GPP-lost energy. 

If you have any questions about this please comment 🙂 sorry if this was unclear at all.

Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.

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.

25) Answer is: less metallic and more nonmetallic.

Electronegativity increases from left to right across a period, atoms have tendency to attract electrons.

Electronegativity (χ) is a property that describes the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons.

26) Answer is: radioisotope.

Radioisotope has an unstable atomic nucleus and emit energy and particles when it changes to a more stable form.

Francium (Fr) is element with atomic number 87 (87 protons and 87 electrons).

27) Answer is: boils.

Boiling is the temperature at which the vapour pressure of the liquid is equal to the pressure exerted on the liquid by the surrounding atmosphere.

The Celsius scale was based on 0°C for the freezing point of water and 100°C for the boiling point of water at 1 atm pressure.

28) Answer is: endothermic.

There are two types of reaction:  

1) endothermic reaction (chemical reaction that absorbs more energy than it releases, ΔH>0).

2) exothermic reaction (chemical reaction that releases more energy than it absorbs).  

For example, the breakdown of ozone is an endothermic process. Ozone has lower energy than molecular oxygen (O₂) and oxygen atom, so ozone need energy to break bond between oxygen atoms.  

29) Answer is: kinetic.

The average kinetic energy of molecules depends on the temperature.  

As temperature increases, molecules gain more energy from surrounding and move faster.  

Kinetic energy (standard unit is the joule J) depends on speed of the molecule.  

Solid gains kinetic energy to become a liquid and then becomes a gas.

30) Answer is: alpha particles.

This was famous Rutherford’s Gold Foil Experiment: he bombarded thin foil of gold with positive alpha particles.

Rutherford observed the deflection of alpha particles on the photographic film.  

Alpha particles are helium atom particles, consist of two protons and two neutrons.  

According to Rutherford model of the atom: atoms have their charge concentrated in a very small nucleus.  

31) Answer is: highest.

For example, calcium oxide.

Calcium oxide (CaO) has ionic bonds between calcium cations (Ca²⁺) and oxygen anions (O²⁻).

Because it has strong ionic bonds, it has high melting point (around 2600°C).

Ionic bond is the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions (cations and anions).

32) Answer is: a scientific model.

A scientific model is a representation of an idea, an object, a process or a system that is used to describe and explain phenomena that cannot be experienced directly.

33) Answer is: the superscript is mass number and the subscript is atomic number.

Atomic number(Z) is the number of protons, which is characteristic of a chemical element..

Mass number (A) is the total number of protons and neutrons in a nucleus.

Which sentences in this excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich show Ivan Ilyich’s struggle with his life and his inability to let go of his past? For three whole days, during which time did not exist for him, he struggled in that black sack into which he was being thrust by an invisible, resistless force. He struggled as a man condemned to death struggles in the hands of the executioner, knowing that he cannot save himself. And every moment he felt that despite all his efforts he was drawing nearer and nearer to what terrified him. He felt that his agony was due to his being thrust into that black hole and still more to his not being able to get right into it. He was hindered from getting into it by his conviction that his life had been a good one. That very justification of his life held him fast and prevented his moving forward, and it caused him most torment of all. Suddenly some force struck him in the chest and side, making it still harder to breathe, and he fell through the hole and there at the bottom was a light. What had happened to him was like the sensation one sometimes experiences in a railway carriage when one thinks one is going backwards while one is really going forwards and suddenly becomes aware of the real direction. “Yes, it was not the right thing,” he said to himself, “but that’s no matter. It can be done. But what is the right thing? he asked himself, and suddenly grew quiet.

[ad_1]

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

Read this paragraph from The Dark Game. It may seem surprising that no Confederate sympathizers took action against Van Lew, given her strong and public views on secession and slavery. Surely there were suspicions, especially among her upper-crust neighbors, but the matter never went beyond those suspicions. Historians have suggested that the secessionists were victims of their own cultural bias, believing that no aristocratic person, and certainly not a lady, would ever consider taking part in anything as impolite as spying. A true lady managed her servants, prepared parties and gatherings, and blindly supported her husband. Such attitudes worked in Van Lew’s favor, diverting suspicion from her. What central idea is implied in this paragraph? A-Elizabeth Van Lew did not follow the rules society set forth for ladies of her time and social class. B-Elizabeth Van Lew was a successful spy because society did not expect a lady to serve in that role. C-Elizabeth Van Lew was able to disguise her spying activities because she kept her views about the war to herself. D-Elizabeth Van Lew created for herself an untrue but believable cover story: she was a wealthy lady living in a fancy neighborhood.

True or false: it doesn’t matter whether you compute marginal cost using total cost or variable cost.

[ad_1]

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

 

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = $1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = $47

 

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = $234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $8.4

Direct labor per unit = $131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = $240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = $8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = $113,220 / 22,200
units sold = $5.1

TE = $26.8

 

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = $47 – $26.8

CM = $20.2 per unit

Does it matter whether contingent workers and core employees are performing the same jobs

[ad_1]

The total payroll amount is $50,000 per week.

Since there are only 5 work days per week (Monday to
Friday), therefore the employees wage per day is:

Employees wage per day = $50,000 / 5 = $10,000

For the payday on April 4, the wages expense covered for
this would be from April 1 to April 4 since the accounting period ended on
March 31. Therefore wages expense in the journal entry would be calculated
using 4 days.

Wages expense for April for the payday April 4 = Employees
wage per day * Number of days

Wages expense for April for the payday April 4 = $10,000 * 4

Wages expense for
April for the payday April 4 = $40,000

Deep-ocean lantern fish have special organs that use chemical energy to produce light. However, the light can only travel a certain distance through the water before it is no longer visible. How does this phenomenon validate the Law of Conservation of Energy? The fish is a closed system, so energy is allowed to exit the system. The Law of Conservation of Energy applies to biological, not physical, systems. The light energy travels through the water until it is reflected or absorbed. The light is not carried by matter and contains no energy.

[ad_1]

The right answer is C, The water solution in the environment surrounding the cell has a higher solute concentration than the cell.

Plasmolysis (the phenomena of shriveling cell) is a cellular state of the plant cell where, following loss of water, the membrane is detached from the pectocellulose wall. This is the opposite state of turgescence.

Plasmolysis occurs when a stream of water comes out of the vacuole and the plant cell through osmosis. The resulting decrease in pressure causes shrivelling of the soft parts of the plant (stems, leaves, petals), which are no longer supported by the turgor pressure.

This flow of water is created either by the lack of water in the external environment, or by the presence in this medium of a liquid more concentrated than the cellular medium. In these situations, there is a displacement of water by osmosis from the cell medium to the external medium.

Thus, the cells of a plant subjected to a drought or a water too concentrated in salts will lose their water and will be in plasmolysis. The soft parts will then shrivel up and the plant will die of water stress if the situation does not allow it to quickly reabsorb water.

The correct answer to the question is : 1) Converting energy and 2) Within about twenty years, natural gas forms.

EXPLANATION:

In coal fired power plants, the water is heated by burning coals. The heat produced in this process will convert water into steam. The steam is allowed to rotate the turbine. The turbine is attached to a generator which converts the kinetic energy of the steam into electric energy due to electromagnetic induction.

Hence, turbine helps in converting energy.

As per the second question, Walt listed the steps that occur during the formation of natural gas.

The natural gas is produced due to natural phenomenon. For this, millions of years are passed. So, it is a long range process in which the fossil of animals and planets buried beneath the surface are converted into natural gas under high pressure.

Hence, the mistake of Walt is  that the natural gas is produced withing twenty years.
