The following graph shows the demand curve for a group of consumers in the U.S. market (blue line) for Blu-ray players. The market price of a Blu-ray player is shown by the black horizontal line at $150. Each rectangle you can place on the following graph corresponds to a particular buyer in this market: orange (square symbols) for Antonio, green (triangle symbols) for Caroline, purple (diamond symbols) for Dmitri, tan (dash symbols) for Frances, and blue (circle symbols) for Jake. Use the rectangles to shade the areas representing consumer surplus for each person who is willing and able to purchase a Blu-ray player at a market price of $150. (Note: If a person will not purchase a Blu-ray player at the market price, indicate this by leaving his or her rectangle in its original position on the palette.

On December 15, 1791, the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution) were ratified by the states.

The Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution to address fears raised by the Anti-Federalists during the ratification of the Constitution that the Constitution did not provide sufficient protection against abuses of power by the federal government. 

James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, originally did not think a Bill of Rights was necessary. He thought the Constitution gave no power to the federal government that would allow for a violation of the rights of the people.

Madison later changed his position, persuaded mainly by Thomas Jefferson, and, with the help of others, drafted twenty amendments that were proposed to the first United States Congress in 1789.

Twelve of the proposed amendments were accepted by Congress and were then sent to the states for ratification. Only ten were ratified.

These ten amendments list our basic rights and place limits on the federal government. They include the freedoms of speech and religion, the right to bear arms, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and an assurance that the powers not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution are reserved to the states and the people. Many of these provisions were based upon similar protections provided by state constitutions that limited the power of state and local government authorities.

Of the remaining amendments that were not ratified in 1791, one was later adopted in 1992 as the twenty-seventh amendment to the Constitution. That amendment prevents changes in the compensation for senators and representatives until after a subsequent election of representatives. The other proposed amendment has never been adopted.

The Bill of Rights illustrates that our Founders understood that for personal freedoms to be broad, the power of the federal government must be limited.

Our nation, however, has moved away from its founding principles, especially during recent decades. Our ever-growing federal government is intervening into more and more aspects of our lives, especially through bureaucratic regulations, and is reducing our personal freedoms in the process.

Government at all levels is doing more and more things that were once left to private individuals and groups, and the federal government is doing more and more things that were once the province of state and local governments, where greater accountability to the public is often possible.

One need only look at the HHS mandate—forcing employers to violate their religious beliefs, under pain of penalty, by paying for and providing abortion pill insurance coverage—to see the harm caused by an overreaching government.

The preservation of our liberties is a daily battle, something our Founders understood. The process of scaling back the size and role of government and returning limits to it is a long one. But, since the federal government is supposed to be our servant and not our master, no one should doubt the importance of this endeavor.

Read this excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” and answer the question that follows. Here the case was very different, as might have been expected from the duke’s love of the bizarre. The apartments were so irregularly disposed that the vision embraced but little more than one at a time. There was a sharp turn at every twenty or thirty yards, and at each turn a novel effect. To the right and left, in the middle of each wall, a tall and narrow Gothic window looked out upon a closed corridor which pursued the windings of the suite. These windows were of stained glass whose colour varied in accordance with the prevailing hue of the decorations of the chamber into which it opened. That at the eastern extremity was hung, for example in blue—and vividly blue were its windows. The second chamber was purple in its ornaments and tapestries, and here the panes were purple. The third was green throughout, and so were the casements. The fourth was furnished and lighted with orange—the fifth with white—the sixth with violet. The seventh apartment was closely shrouded in black velvet tapestries that hung all over the ceiling and down the walls, falling in heavy folds upon a carpet of the same material and hue. . . .And thus were produced a multitude of gaudy and fantastic appearances. What kind of writing does the excerpt represent?

The answer should be D. Argumentative! It makes an argument that also persuades you in a different way but only of the sense that this time it is knocking what argument you made down. Have a good rest of your day!

A box contains 60 colored balls: 45 of the balls are purple, and 30 of the purple balls have stars on them. if a purple ball being randomly chosen and a ball with stars being randomly chosen are independent events, how many of the 60 colored balls have stars on them? use conditional probability to justify your answer.

[ad_1]

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

 = 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

Read the following poem by William Butler Yeats, which was written after the romantic period ended.The Lake Isle of InnisfreeI will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,And live alone in the bee-loud glade.And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,And evening full of the linnet’s wings.I will arise and go now, for always night and dayI hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,I hear it in the deep heart’s core.Which three characteristics does the poem share with the romantic movement?

British gave supplied to most of the slaves in North American colonies during the colonial period. The slaves were brought from their native homeland in African countries where the British had colonized before as well as many Native Americans were also forced to work as slaves for the colonies.

 

 

EXPLANATION:

There are some facts about slavery in North America during the colonial period:  

 

1. Many Native Americans were also arrested and forced into slavery during the 1600s.

2. Slaves became wealth and social status symbols for plantation owners in the South.

3. Not all of Africans who lived in the American colonies were slaves. About eight percent of African-Americans were free in 1790.

4. In the mid-1700s, about half of the people who lived in the southern colony were slaves.

5. When John Oglethorpe founded the Georgia colony, he made slavery unlawful. However, this law was cancelled in 1751.

6. Many slaves were field hands working on tobacco fields in the southern colony. These slaves worked very hard and were often treated badly. Other slaves were housemaids. These slaves did work around the house or helped in the master’s shop.

7. Slaves who worked in agriculture and plantations lived in small houses near fields. Slaves’ houses were lack of privacy, they sometimes lived alone in the attic above the kitchen or stable.

8. Field slaves were commonly given a set of clothes that must last a year. These clothes were similar to any colonial peasant’s style of work. Female slaves wore long dresses and male slaves wore trousers and loose shirts. Slaves who worked at home often dress better, usually wearing their master’s old clothes.

9. Slaves were treated differently relying on their masters. Generally, field slaves were treated worse than house slaves. Field slaves were sometimes whipped and beaten. They were forced to work for long hours with insufficient rest time.

10. Slaves had no rights and were under the commands of their masters for 24/7. They could be sold or bought at any time and rarely could live together with their family. Children were often sold so they could work, never seeing their parents again.
