Which of the following best describes the 1957 events at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas? Governor Faubus resisted the school’s integration with National Guard troops, and President Eisenhower sent federal troops to enforce integration. Under Governor Faubus, Little Rock police first fought, then enforced, the order to integrate the school. President Eisenhower sent National Guard troops to resist the school’s integration, but Governor Faubus obtained a court order to dismiss them. President Eisenhower and Governor Faubus worked together to make the integration process run as smoothly as possible.

[ad_1]

The correct answer is  Governor Faubus resisted the school’s integration with National Guard troops, and President Eisenhower sent federal troops to enforce integration.

After the Supreme Court case Brown vs. Board of Education (1954) the federal government called for the desegregation of schools all across America. This included Central High School. Central High School was previously an all white school. After Brown vs. Board of Education ruled segregated schools illegal, 9 black students enrolled at Central High School. These individuals would be known as the Little Rock 9.

After enrolling, these students tried to attend Central High School but were kept out by the national guard troops. This was due to Governor Fabius’s disagreement with integrating white and black schools. However, President Eisenhower enforced the federal ruling by sending in federal troops to enforce the new ruling, allowing black and white students to attend the same school.

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.

Which is on example of a telling detail from the National Geographic video

[ad_1]

The compulsive liars are Julia and Jack.

This can be reasoned by trying to prove a statement that says that one person is certainly lying or certainly telling the truth and checking it.

According to the text, Jack is only a liar. This is stated by Joey when he says that “Jack lies, as does Jane or Julia”. Jack says that “If you round up Jane, Joey and John, you will have at least one liar”. This means that none of them are liars because Jack, the one saying this, is a liar. Thus, these three (Jane, Joey and John) are the ones that can only say the truth. The text also mentions that two kids are liars. That leaves Julia as the other liar.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Well I live in Florida so; I can explain tourism has always had a large role in our history. During our development, tourism gave us the much needed boost in economy that we needed to get on our feet. People coming from all over to enjoy the oranges and warm sun and beaches was a large source of income for people all over. More people to boy products = a larger income. The ‘boom and bust’ is what im guessing was the time right before the stock market crashed. Americans were richer then ever, they took more vacations, they generally thought of themselves having a brighter economic future, which caused more spending, more vacations, more extravagance. This made Florida truly flourish for a time, becoming a hotspot for wealthy vacation homes. The Great Depression almost killed us.. many buisness owners had come to depend on tourism to make a living wage, but since the great depression loomed over everyone, no one took vacations. No one had extra money to spend. Many of those wealthy vacation homes went into foreclosure. The Floridian Economy tanked during this time, so bad we even feel ripple effects of it today, even though we have built up so much more.

USING SEMICOLONS AND COLONS CORRECTLY Correct the punctuation in the following sentences by re-writing the sentence, adding semicolons and colons where they are needed and by changing other punctuation and capitalization as needed. Example 1. The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. Corrected version: The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II: coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. In Washington, D.C., we visited three museums in a single day the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

[ad_1]

Answer:

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

Explanation:

The correct rewriting of the sentence will be –

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

The use of the comma right after Washington is wrong as it is the name of a single particular place so it should instead be written as Washington D. C.

Also, a semicolon has to be inserted in between day and the. Since the sentence lists a number of places, the use of a colon is necessary to show the list of the places visited.

So, the changes in the sentence are-

(a) remove the comma (,) in between Washington and D.

(b) put a colon (:) right next to the word “day”.

There are many reasons for conflicts between nations how can diplomacy be used to resolve a conflict

Diplomacy can be used because diplomats create treaties and agreements on problems and these treaties resolve problems in such a way that it benefits both sides. If it doesn’t benefit both sides, then it’s usually as a result of a war effort. Good diplomats for example like Henry Kissinger can completely turn the way a politician behaves, like he opened China a bit to the west even though it was believed to be impossible.

Prior to the beginning of World War I, which nation challenged Great Britain for supremacy of the seas? A) France B) Germany C) Russia D) Italy

Answer:

B) Germany

Explanation:

After 1805 the strength of Britain’s Royal Navy was unchallenged; during the 1890s Germany chose to match it. Amazing Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz commanded German maritime arrangement from 1897 until 1916. Before the German Empire shaped in 1871, Prussia never had a genuine naval force, nor did the other German states. Tirpitz transformed the unobtrusive minimal armada into a world-class power that could compromise the British Royal Navy. The British reacted with new innovation embodied by the Dreadnought upset. It made each war vessel out of date and, enhanced by the worldwide network of coaling stations and telegraph cables, empowered Britain to remain well in the number one spot in naval affairs.

In the 1920s, the anti-defamation league brought national attention to the racism of which group?

[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. ”

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 🙂

Answer:

x > 2

Step-by-step explanation:

Here, x represents the length of the poster,

Since, width of the poster is 2 inches shorter than its length,

Width of the poster = ( x – 2 ) inches,

Thus, the area of the poster = length × width,

A = x (x-2)

We know that,

Area of a poster must be greater than zero,

⇒ A > 0,

⇒ x(x-2) > 0

⇒ x > 0 and x-2 > 0

If x – 2 > 0 ⇒ x > 2,

That is, the length of the poster must be greater than 2 inches.
