It is this fate, I solemnly assure you, that I dread for you, when the time comes that you make your reckoning, and realize that there is no longer anything that can be done. May you never find yourselves, men of Athens, in such a position! Yet in any case, it were better to die ten thousand deaths, than to do anything out of servility towards Philip [or to sacrifice any of those who speak for your good]. A noble recompense did the people in Oreus receive, for entrusting themselves to Philip’s friends, and thrusting Euphraeus aside! And a noble recompense the democracy of Eretria, for driving away your envoys, and surrendering to Cleitarchus! They are slaves, scourged and butchered! A noble clemency did he show to the Olynthians, who elected Lasthenes to command the cavalry, and banished Apollonides! It is folly, and it is cowardice, to cherish hopes like these, to give way to evil counsels, to refuse to do anything that you should do, to listen to the advocates of the enemy’s cause, and to fancy that you dwell in so great a city that, whatever happens, you will not suffer any harm.

When the Constitution was first proposed, there were three dissenters. Who were they and why did they refuse to sign the document?

[ad_1]

Then correct answers are A) petition must be filed by voters to begin the referendum process. B) Only new laws or recent amendments to existing laws are considered. C) The legislature must accept the referendum before it goes to voters.

The statements that correctly describe the referendum process are the following: petition must be filed by voters to begin the referendum process, only new laws or recent amendments to existing laws are considered, and the legislature must accept the referendum before it goes to voters.

We are talking about the referendum process in the state of Michigan. The two ways citizens cant begin with the process are a “directly initiated constitutional amendment” or an “indirectly initiated state statute.” They have to collect enough signs to send the petition to the legislature of the state. Once there, state Congressmen has forty days to make a decision: to accept the petition or reject it. If it is rejected it is again considered in the next ballot. But in this state, citizens can use their veto power to revocate the decision.

Read the excerpt from the US Supreme court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The statute of Louisiana, acts of 1890, c. 111, requiring railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in that State, to provide equal, but separate, accommodations for the white and colored races, by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations; and providing that no person shall be permitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them, on account of the race they belong to; and requiring the officer of the passenger train to assign each passenger to the coach or compartment assigned for the race to which he or she belong; and imposing fines or imprisonment upon passengers insisting on going into a coach or compartment other than the one set aide for the race to which he or she belongs; and conferring upon officers of the train power to refuse to carry on the train passengers refusing to occupy the coach or compartment assigned to them, and exempting the railway company from liability for such refusal, are not in conflict with the provisions either of the Thirteenth Amendment or of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Which best explains why the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson was unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s ruling allowed states to deny equal protection to any person within its jurisdiction. Since the 14th Amendment did not make concessions for people born outside the US, the Supreme Court’s decision could not be applied. The Supreme Court’s decision gave individual states the freedom to make their own laws in relation to non-whites. Since segregation laws did not provide equal protections or liberties to non-whites, the ruling was not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

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

A driver is impaired when they ____ A. Refuse to adapt their driving behavior B. Unaware of traffic around them C. Both A and B

[ad_1]

Answer: B) Should states “require adolescents to be eighteen before obtaining a driver’s license” (Bipin)?

Explanation: When we have a quotation an a question, we need to be careful with the position of the question mark, if the quote is a question, then the question mark should be inside the quotation marks, for example: she asks: “where is my cake?”, if the question is about the quotation (like this case) the question mark must be outside the quotation marks. Also, in this case, we have the name of the author, it should be between parentheses and just after the quotation marks, so the correct answer is: Should states “require adolescents to be eighteen before obtaining a driver’s license” (Bipin)?

Answer:

B. humanity’s place in relation to the larger universe.

D. The music is loud yet so confidential

I cannot help feeling even more

like the center of the universe

Explanation:

Both “Death by a Black Hole” and “Man Listening to Disc” discuss humanity’s place in relation to the larger universe. However, the authors reach very different conclusions. While Tyson concludes that humans are insignificant in relation to the universe, Billy Collins puts humanity at the center of the universe.

In these lines, Collins shows how the speaker uses the music to isolate himself from others. He tells us that the music is loud, yet it is only for him. No one else can hear it, and no one participates in this private activity. He feels like the center of the universe because there is no one around. This shows that the speaker uses music to isolate himself from others.
