## Read the summary of “The Beginnings of the Maasai.” In “The Beginnings of the Maasai,” the daughter of the Maasai explains the relationship between the Maasai and their sky god Enkai. She explains how a volcanic eruption sent Enkai and the cattle into the sky. In order to save the cattle, Enkai created a giant tree that allowed them to walk back to earth. Then, Enkai entrusted Neiterkob, the narrator’s father, and his tribe to care for the cattle. As a result, the cattle are sacred to the Maasai, and the Maasai maintain a close connection with Enkai. Is this an effective summary of the story? Yes, because it includes key ideas from the beginning, middle, and end, and it explains the conflict and the resolution. Yes, because it focuses on the details from the beginning, the obstacles from the middle, and the resolution from the end. No, because it is uses too many specific names from the beginning, middle, and end, and it has a vague resolution. No, because it leaves out details from the beginning, the obstacles from the middle, and the resolution from the end.

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 sentences in this excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich show Ivan Ilyich’s struggle with his life and his inability to let go of his past? For three whole days, during which time did not exist for him, he struggled in that black sack into which he was being thrust by an invisible, resistless force. He struggled as a man condemned to death struggles in the hands of the executioner, knowing that he cannot save himself. And every moment he felt that despite all his efforts he was drawing nearer and nearer to what terrified him. He felt that his agony was due to his being thrust into that black hole and still more to his not being able to get right into it. He was hindered from getting into it by his conviction that his life had been a good one. That very justification of his life held him fast and prevented his moving forward, and it caused him most torment of all. Suddenly some force struck him in the chest and side, making it still harder to breathe, and he fell through the hole and there at the bottom was a light. What had happened to him was like the sensation one sometimes experiences in a railway carriage when one thinks one is going backwards while one is really going forwards and suddenly becomes aware of the real direction. “Yes, it was not the right thing,” he said to himself, “but that’s no matter. It can be done. But what is the right thing? he asked himself, and suddenly grew quiet.

The equation of the car is given by the equation,

x(t) = 2.31 + 4.90t² – 0.10t⁶

If we are going to differentiate the equation in terms of x, we get the value for velocity.

dx/dt = 9.8t – 0.6t⁵

Calculate for the value of t when dx/dt = 0.

dx/dt = 0 = (9.8 – 0.6t⁴)(t)

The values of t from the equation is approximately equal to 0 and 2.

If we substitute these values to the equation for displacement,

(0)   , x = 2.31 + 4.90(0²) – 0.1(0⁶) = 2.31

(2)    , x = 2.31 + 4.90(2²) – 0.1(2⁶) = 15.51

Thus, the positions at the instants where velocity is zero are 2.31 and 15.51 meters.

## Hurry help me !!! Species are disappearing at an accelerating rate through human action, primarily habitat destruction but also pollution and the introduction of exotic species into residual natural environments. I have said that a fifth or more of the species of plants and animals could vanish or be doomed to early extinction by the year 2020 unless better efforts are made to save them. . . . As the last forests are felled in forest strongholds like the Philippines and Ecuador, the decline of species will accelerate even more. In the world as a whole, extinction rates are already hundreds or thousands of times higher than before the coming of man. They cannot be balanced by new evolution in any period of time that has meaning for the human race. What message does the author convey in this excerpt? Humans need to take action to end further destruction of the natural environment. In the coming years, humans will put forth stronger efforts to save plants and animals. The extinction of plant and animal species is problematic in the Philippines and Ecuador. In recent years, the extinction rate for many animal species has significantly increased.

1) Water has very high specific heat.

2) It expands when it freezes

3) ability to dissolve in ionic substances

4) Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid.

Explanation:

1) Water molecules due to their high specific heat , undergo relatively less increase in temperature after absorbing heat. So they prevent their adjoining area to experience sharp increase in temperature.

2) Water is an example which expands on freezing. In it , large spaces are left between molecules when it cools. It happens because hydrogen bonds prevent any two molecules to come very close thereby  creating gaps. This gap is filled up when ice melts , which results in overall reduction in volume of water.

3) Uneven distribution of charge results in water molecules becoming polar in nature . A polar substance  can be dissolved in polar solvents only.

4) It is due to property of surface tension. Property  of surface tension results due to molecules of water near the surface experiencing a  net downward  force due to hydrogen bonds . It is due to fewer hydrogen bonds made by them.

A girl battles mysterious creatures as she tries to save her kidnapped family. C. A boy fears that he is evil after he steals food to feed his starving family. D. A man struggles to stop his home from being consumed by a wildfire.

The correct answer is B. Inexperience & lack of preparation

Explanation:

To begin with, the word apprehension refers to a strong feeling of fear or anxiety usually related to excessive worry about something going wrong or one making mistakes. This feeling occurs in different situations including communication in which the speaker is anxious about a presentation or speech, usually because she or he is afraid of committing mistakes or being negatively judged by the audience. Additionally, in the case of communication apprehension, there are different factors that influence it including the communicative situation, the audience, the context, the expertise of the speaker and the preparation of the presentation.

In the case presented, in which Jane spent little time working on the presentation, it is possible she experiences apprehension feelings as she does not have experience in giving presentations, which means she does not feel confident and she is more prompt to making mistakes. Also, her anxiety levels might increase as she did not prepare the presentation properly and therefore she might not be ready to deliver it. Thus, Jane is likely to feel apprehensive due to her inexperience and lack of preparation.

## The historian Procopius attributes this speech to Theodora.

For we have much money; there is the sea, here are the boats. But think whether after you have been saved you may not come to feel that you would have preferred to die. As for me, I like a certain old proverb that says: royalty is a good shroud (burial garment).” —History of the Wars, Procopius Which of the following reflects Theodora’s attitude about dealing with the Nika Riots? It is too dangerous to flee the rioters. It is shameful for an emperor to flee the rioters. It is politically savvy to flee the rioters. It is honorable for an emperor to flee the rioters.

The correct answer is A. As a result of the Embargo Act, British and French merchants suffered because they sold fewer goods.

Explanation:

The Embargo Act of 1807 sought to restrict foreign trade on the American coast. The act was passed by Congress during the second administration of President Thomas Jefferson.

It originated as a result of the Chesapeake-Leopard Affair involving the British warship Leopard and the American frigate Chesapeake, that was caused by a British ban on American commerce with France. The two European countries were at war (Napoleonic Wars), while the United States had remained neutral, but traded in secret with both sides.

According to Jefferson, the British violated the rights of Americans on the high seas and the embargo laws were passed in retaliation. These measures caused great damage to the American Economy, that of an export of \$ 108 million in 1807, went to \$ 22 million in 1808. The acts were repealed even at the end of the Jefferson administration. A modified version would come back with the restrictions during a brief period of 1813, in the administration of James Madison, that replaced Jefferson.

## Brian has \$88 in his saving account . If he saves \$3.50 per week , how long will it take him to save \$200 in his account

Answer: Our required equation would be

Step-by-step explanation:

Since we have given that

Amount the first runner has in savings = \$112

Amount the first runner received a gift from a friend = \$45

Amount the first runner saved each month = \$25

Let the number of months be ‘m’.

So, Total amount in the first runner account is given by

Similarly,

Amount the second runner has in savings = \$50

Amount the second runner saved each month = \$60

so, the total amount in the second runner account is given by

According to question, Both the accounts have same amount of money.

So, it becomes,

## Getting a job is vital for me right now because I have bills to pay. I also want to save money to help with my college expenses. It also would be nice to have a little extra cash to go out to dinner and a movie once in a while. Which organizational structure is used in this passage? list process order spatial order order of importance

I believe this speech is very persuasive. In this speech, McCullough explains his views on the new ways of approaching education. I believe he does a good job of explaining why the pursuit to be the best has become meaningless and empty.

In the passage, the author argues that people are obsessed with being the “best.” This is because they believe that they are special, and that they really can achieve things that are more incredible than those of the general population. However, the author argues successfully, not everyone can be special because that would lead you to the conclusion that no one is. Similarly, if every school is one of the best, then the category loses meaning. This is a very logical and persuasive argument.

Moreover, he argues that this belief leads people to have experiences that would normally be good and meaningful. However, they engage in them in a superficial way. They do so simply to have a better track record of accomplishments. This leads to experiences becoming cheap and meaningless, and to life being seen as a series of races and awards.

## Fiona has \$18 to spend. She spent \$4.25, including tax, to buy a notebook. She needs to save \$9.75, but she wants to buy a snack. If crackers cost \$0.50 per package including tax, what inequality would show the maximum number of packages that Fiona can buy? Solve your inequality by showing your work and steps

It is better to bet on 7.

Step-by-step explanation:

It is given that,

We are rolling two 6-sided numbered cubes and placing bets on the ‘sum of the outcome’.

So, the pair of numbers will be the possible options for the outcome to be their sum.

Now, the possibility to have the sum of 3, 4, 7 and 11 are:

3 = 1+2 i.e. only one pair is the possibility

4 = 1+3 = 2+2 i.e there are two pairs as the possibility

7 =  1+6 = 2+5 = 3+4 i.e. there are three possible pairs

11 = 5+6 i.e. only one pair is the possibility

So, the maximum possibility of a sum to be the outcome is when the sum = 7 i.e. there are 3 possible pairs for the sum to be 7.

Hence, 7 has the highest possibility to become the outcome.

So, It is better to bet on 7.
