The quote below was part of a campaign speech given by Senator Albert J. Beveridge in 1898: “But today we are raising more than we can consume. Today we are making more than we can use. Today our industrial society is congested; there are more workers than there is work; there is more capital than there is investment. We do not need more money—we need more circulation, more employment. Therefore, we must find new markets for our produce, new occupation for our capital, new work for our labor.” Which type of policy was this statement intended to justify?

[ad_1]

The correct answer is imperialism.

Imperialism is when one country tries to extend its power over another country or territory. This can be done through warfare or the signing of treaties/agreements. The quote by Beveridge is discussing how American society is producing more goods than its ever produced and that the US needs to expand its power and influence over other countries. This would allow the excess goods and services to be sold to new consumers, generating more profits for business owners.

Read the excerpt from Early Victorian Tea Set. Among the upper classes, tea had been popular since before 1700. It received celebrity endorsement from Charles II’s queen, Catherine of Braganza, and from Queen Anne. It came from China, it was expensive, refreshingly bitter and drunk in tiny cups without milk or sugar. People kept their tea in locked tea caddies, as if it were a drug; for those who could afford it, it often was. In the 1750s Samuel Johnson confessed himself a happy addict: A hardened and shameless tea drinker, who has for twenty years diluted his meals with only the infusion of this fascinating plant, whose kettle scarcely has time to cool, who with Tea amuses the evening, with Tea solaces the midnights, and with Tea welcomes the morning. MacGregor’s main purpose in providing the quote is to

D. He quotes the cries of the
spectators and the Viewpoint of Eisenhower, all of which were critical of the
attack on the Bonus Army

The bonus army was a group of veterans, their affiliates and
families who protested for help during the Great Depression.  The economic hardship they experienced caused
them to ask for the WW1 bonus checks earlier than the law specified.

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 🙂

Which quote describes the concerns Americans had about joining NATO?

[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 quote from Zimmermann in The Code Book. In the past, if the government wanted to violate the privacy of ordinary citizens, it had to expend a certain amount of effort to intercept and steam open and read paper mail, or listen to and possibly transcribe spoken telephone conversations. This is analogous to catching fish with a hook and a line, one fish at a time. Fortunately for freedom and democracy, this kind of labor-intensive monitoring is not practical on a large scale. Today, electronic mail is gradually replacing conventional paper mail, and is soon to be the norm for everyone, not the novelty it is today. Unlike paper mail, e-mail messages are just too easy to intercept and scan for interesting keywords. This can be done easily, routinely, automatically, and undetectably on a grand scale. This is analogous to driftnet fishing—making a quantitative and qualitative Orwellian difference to the health of democracy. What is the purpose of the quote from Zimmermann? It explains how much faster e-mail travels than ordinary mail. It shows how easily digital mail can be monitored by outsiders. It states exactly how many people use e-mail instead of regular mail. It proves that e-mail is better for the health of democracy than regular mail.

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

An apa-style block quote must be enclosed in quotation marks. a. True b. False

[ad_1]

This sounds like an essay question, i’ll give you some possible points and quotations, maybe some ideas on context, but it’s up to you to develop your own thesis and opinion on this. 

f. scot fitzgerald critiques the idea of the american dream (like many other classic authors) through the situations of the characters.

jay gatsby is able to aquire an enormous amount of wealth throughout his life, but he is unable to penetrate the upper class. he ends up being killed after tangling in that crowd for too long

possibly mention the context of the 20s. a tumultuous time following WW1, increase in immigration as well as womens rights and the massive economic boom. (with the crash looming in 1929) there was a belief that anyone could ‘strike it rich’ like gatsby did.

george and myrtle wilson were middle class people looking to improve their life, and achieve the american dream

daisy is the ultimate, perfect example of the american dream.

the darkest secret at the end, gatsby’s wealth didn’t come from work, it came from a life of crime. fitzgerald is basically saying american dream is actually a lost promise. 

also underlying greed strewn throughout the novel, and affairs which tear couples apart. 

quote: 
‘But I didn’t call to him for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone–he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way, and far as I was from him I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward–and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock.’ 

very key symbol of the green light, and gatsby reaching out to something (the american dream) that he cannot aquire. 

hope that helps 🙂 feel free to disagree and develop your own opinions on this subject.

if you want more info, there are plenty of articles full of quotes, examples and ideas on the internet. reading critical perspectives of the great gatsby are also good if you’re willing to look 😀

The words that most closely matches the denotation of the bold words are:

Her fervent piety and watchful uprightness made it impossible to see her without thinking and feeling—”that woman is a Christian.” [diligent]

The most interesting feature of my history here was my learning to read and write, under somewhat marked disadvantages. [considerable]

Words like these, I observed, always troubled them; and I had no small satisfaction in wringing from the boys, occasionally, that fresh and bitter condemnation of slavery, that springs from nature, unseared and unperverted. [pure,uncorrupted]

Fredrick Douglass wrote his own account of life in which he mentioned about the ills of slavery and about the hardships which the slaves had to undergo. He had tried to expose the cruelty of slavery which doesn’t spare anyone born in a black family. He points out the idea that a slave is a form of property owned by the master and he possesses full control over him.

Which word in the quote below from all together now suggests that the statement is an opinion? The best way to get this country faithful to the American dream of Tolerance and equality is to start small

[ad_1]

Answer: When Marie arrived in Paris in 1891, she studied physics at the greatest university in Europe, the Sorbonne. But how poor she was!

In this excerpt, Curie describes how, during the winter, she often had to pile all her clothes on the bedcovers in order to be warm. This shows that Curie did not have lumber or coal to keep her room warm. Moreover, she had to cook her food with an alcohol lamp, and her meals were extremely simple and austere. The passage suggests the life of a student, and the fact that her money was very limited. The sentence that supports the passage, therefore, is the one that describes her studies in Paris and her poverty.

Quotation

“Sir, we have as far as possible closed every avenue by which light may enter their

[The slaves’] minds; we have only to go one step farther,

—To extinguish the Capacity to see the light and our work would be completed”

This quote is expressing a scene of some soldiers who have some slaves in their prison the soldiers are telling to their head/commander that we have closed all the possible ways all the possible roads or tunnels and any other possible avenue through which they can even try or think to escape from here to get rid of this prison anytime or by having any chance in coming time/days. Now we just have to take one wisest and the best step to completely destroy their every hope every single prospect of them to escape from here to get rid of this hell if they have it. Then our work will be finished completely and clearly without any doubt and we would be relaxed ahead. After this one last important step we will be relaxed and get comfort with this.

Their commander/head responds by listening all their instructions that “we good my soldiers I am proud of your efforts and hard work I appreciate your loyalty towards your duty this is the sign of a successful person to do your tasks with loyalty and hardly . Now I will take the last step to completely destroy their every single hope of escaping from my prison I will show them that if they even think of escaping from here what will happen to them I will make them a weird lesson for others that no one will ever again try to escape from there and the last step is just enlighten every avenue’s entrance with fire and shower diesel on the gates so that if anyone try to pass it in sense of escaping he/she will get burned immediately. They will get a horrifying lesson that escaping through this hell is just impossible for them. They have to live here till their last breath.
