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.

Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

2. Which source would be the most credible when researching the topic of plagiarism? an article in a journal written by two professors a website about plagiarism that does not list the author’s credentials a personal blog about being caught plagiarizing a student report on plagiarism in college


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:35 AM

An article in a journal written by two professors is your best choice. The second option is a no go because how would you know if the website was using credible evidence or an author who knew what they were talking about? A personal blog is a no go as well because they would have no concrete evidence other than what they know, also a student report on plagiarism in college isn’t a solid choice either because then it’s second hand evidence and you don’t know whether they have credible sources. Hope this helps!

Know your family health history and use reliable resources to research any family illnesses, because this will help you understand risks and available treatments Schedule regular doctor appointments, because getting checked by the doctor ensures that you will not get sick or contract communicable diseases Get extra sleep on days you don’t exercise, because this will help you keep your body composition in a healthy range and avoid changes in weight Use vitamins and performance-enhancing supplements, because they increase energy levels and help build muscles to keep your body physically fit Question 4(Multiple Choice Worth 1 points)


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 04:31 AM

Your answer is: Know your family health history and use reliable resources to research any family.illnesses because this will help you understand risks and available treatments. By process of deduction, doctor’s appointments cannot perfectly ensure a lack of sickness, increasing sleep has studies that suggest it actually increases chances of weight gain, and performance-enhancing supplements are actually harmful if you don’t need them. Good Luck!

When leo burnett combines advertising, personal selling, public relations, and sales promotion into one comprehensive, unified promotional strategy, it is using integrated?


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

Which is not an appropriate thesis for an essay comparing two texts about poverty in the United States? Garcia’s reliance on personal stories makes her argument less convincing than Engle’s. Engle combines testimony from social workers with economic statistics that date back to the 1920s to craft a more convincing argument than the one Garcia offers. Garcia and Engle are both experienced scholars who write about poverty and race in the United States. Although both Garcia and Engle agree that hunger in the United States has generally declined since the beginning of the twentieth century, Garcia’s use of personal stories makes for a more interesting and more readable article.


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 logical fallacy is used in the above World War II propaganda poster? A. appeal to pity B. testimonial C. false dilemma D. personal attack


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 🙂

1. The answer is “C”.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.  

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

2. The answer is “A”.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

What is the name of the device that regulates the amount of fuel going into the engine of a personal watercraft (pwc)?


In order to get a sample of air that is 23 km above the ground, the rocket must rise by that height.

Draw a diagram (shown below) t represent the problem.

The distance h₁ is traveled from A to B with an upward acceleration of 17 m/s² over 30 s. The distance traveled is
h₁ = (1/2)(17 m/s²)(30 s)² = 7650 m = 7.65 km

At point B, the velocity attained is
V = (17 m/s²)30s) = 510 m/s

The distance h₂ is traveled from B to C with gravitational deceleration of -9.8 m/s². The distance traveled is given by
(510 m/s)² – 2(9.8 m/s²)h₂ = 0
h₂ = 13270.4 m = 13.27 km

The total height attained by the rocket is
h₁ + h₂ = 7.65 + 13.27 = 20.92 km

This height falls short of the desired height of 23 km.

Answer:
The rocket does not travel high enough to sample the air at a height of 23 km.
