Read the excerpt from “A Simple Way to Create Suspense”. For instance, heading toward a movie review program, I remember we asked: Who was the studio’s first choice for the Harry Callahan role in “Dirty Harry”? We knew most viewers would be intrigued. (What, Clint Eastwood wasn’t the first choice?) But—and this was the lesson—the success of the tactic didn’t depend on intrigue. Even viewers with no interest at all stuck around to find out. Humans are hard-wired. They need to know. Even viewers who knew the answer for sure stuck around, in order to be gratified. The gap was bridged, and the danger averted. (It was Frank Sinatra. You waited, right?) Which best describes this excerpt? The central idea of this excerpt is that Clint Eastwood was not the original choice for the Dirty Harry movie. The central idea of this excerpt is that intrigue is the most important way to create suspense. The author uses an analogy to compare his readers to the characters of a Hollywood movie. The author uses a personal anecdote to show that audiences are willing to wait for an answer.


Answer:

Identify the complex sentence that uses a subordinate conjunction. It’s time to turn off the television and to go outside. He went to rehearsal and he finished his homework. I will not see the movie if I did not like the book. Rudolfo is going on vacation with his grandparents.


The correct answer is “I will not see the movie if I did not like the book”. A conjunction is a word that connects or joins together words, phrases, clauses, or sentences. Subordinate conjunctions connect two unequal parts, dependent and independent clauses. Some examples of subordinate conjunctions are: after, before, unless, until, while, to mention some of them. In this sentence, the subordinate conjunction is “if“.

All of the following are valid considerations when critiquing the quality of a film EXCEPT: A. whether or not the sound enhances the believability of the film B. whether or not the color palette supports the overall tone and mood of the film C. whether or not the film makes a large amount of money upon distribution to national movie theaters D. whether or not the cinematography expertly addresses lighting and composition


Answer:

C. whether or not the film makes a large amount of money upon distribution to national movie theaters

Explanation:

For a quality critique of a film, you should keep in mind if the sound enhances the believability of the film, how the lighting and photo make the film more beautiful and help the narrative, and wheter or not the colour palette matches the tone of the movie, for an artistic critique the box office has nothing to do, many of the most acclaimed movies ever gather little money on the box office, and the top grossing films in history weren´t that acclaimed. In movies Box office does not equal quality.

One month Henry rented 3 movies and 8 video games for a total of $58 . The next month he rented 5 movies and 2 video games for a total of $23 . Find the rental cost for each movie and each video game. Rental cost for eachmovie:$___ Rental costfor each video game:$____


Henry rented 3 movies and 8 video games for a total of $58
3m + 8v= $58
The next month he rented 5 movies and 2 video games for a total of $23.
5m + 2v = $23.

Grab an equation and solve it for one of the variables:
3m + 8v= $58
3m=58-8v
m=19.333-2.6666v

Then sub that result in for the variable in the other equation:
5(19.333-2.666666v )+ 2v = $23.
96.666 – 13.333v + 2v = $23.
96.666 – 11.333v = $23.
-11.333v = $23-96.666
-11.333v = -73.666
v=6.50

Now sub back in v in one of the equations:
5m + 2v = $23.
5m + 2(6.50) = $23.
5m+13 = 23
5m=10
m=2

The video games cost $6.50 and the Movies cost $2.00.

3($2.00) + 8($6.50) = $58
5($2.00) + 2($6.50) = $23.

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

Which answer choice would be the best topic for a personal narrative? 1, what I ate for breakfast 2. my favorite movie or TV show 3. the history of my hometown 4. a mistake I made


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

It also would be nice to have a little extra cash to go out to dinner and a movie once in a while. Which organizational structure is used in this passage? list process order spatial order order of importance


I believe this speech is very persuasive. In this speech, McCullough explains his views on the new ways of approaching education. I believe he does a good job of explaining why the pursuit to be the best has become meaningless and empty.

In the passage, the author argues that people are obsessed with being the “best.” This is because they believe that they are special, and that they really can achieve things that are more incredible than those of the general population. However, the author argues successfully, not everyone can be special because that would lead you to the conclusion that no one is. Similarly, if every school is one of the best, then the category loses meaning. This is a very logical and persuasive argument.

Moreover, he argues that this belief leads people to have experiences that would normally be good and meaningful. However, they engage in them in a superficial way. They do so simply to have a better track record of accomplishments. This leads to experiences becoming cheap and meaningless, and to life being seen as a series of races and awards.

Answer:

The answer is the option B

951 m^{2}, 969 m^{2}

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1

Find the lateral area

we know that

The formula to calculate the lateral area is equal to

LA=Ph

where

P is the perimeter of the base of the prism

h is the height of the prism

In this problem we have

P=2+9+9.23=20.23 m

h=47 m

substitute in the formula

LA=20.23*47=950.81 m^{2}

LA=951 m^{2}

Step 2

Find the surface area

we know that

The formula to calculate the surface area is equal to

SA=2B+Ph

where

B is the area of the base of the prism

P is the perimeter of the base of the prism

h is the height of the prism

In this problem we have

B=9*2/2=9 m^{2}

P=2+9+9.23=20.23 m

h=47 m

substitute in the formula

SA=2(9)+20.23*47=968.81 m^{2}

SA=969 m^{2}

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”
