The question below refers to the selection “Games at Twilight.” Explain the irony at the conclusion of the story.

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.

In tropical rain forest, the animals will have to deal with higher temperatures and greater rainfall. One example of an adaptation they might need is a thin, water-proof coat. This will prevent heat from becoming trapped inside their fur/hair/feathers, and the water-absorbing coating will allow water to stick to the inside of the coat without being absorbed, where the water will absorb the heat instead of themselves, and will cool the through evaporative cooling (heat release through evaporation)

In a deciduous forest, there is much colder temperatures, and significantly less rainfall. These animals would likely want a thicker water-proof coat. This is because the thicker coat would allow heat to become trapped, keeping them warm in the winter, and the water-proof coating prevents water from freezing in their fur, making them colder.

There are two systems in the human body that are responsible for the coordination between the functions of different systems to achieve the unity of the living organism’s body. These two systems are the nervous system and the endocrine system. The action of the nervous system is fast and takes a short time, while the action of the endocrine system is slow and takes a long time.

The functional unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell or the neuron. The neuron consists of a cell body and the axon. The cell body starts with the dendrites that receive the messages or the impulses from other neurons or from different sense organs or receptors. These impulses are then transmitted through the cell body. The cell body contains a nucleus and different organelles which help the nerve cell to perform its functions. The nerve impulse is then transmitted to the axon.

The axon is an extension from the cell body. There are some cells called Schwan cells that secrete a myelin sheath to insulate the axon from the surrounding medium. The insulated axons have more ability to conduct the impulses than non-insulated axons. The axon ends with the terminal arborizations. The terminal arborizations of a nerve cell connect to the dendrites of the next cell or to the afferent organ. The gaps between the dendrites and the terminal arborizations are called the synapses.

The nerve impulse is an electrochemical phenomenon i.e. an electrical phenomenon with a chemical nature. The membrane of the axon acts as a barrier between an outside positively charged medium and an inside negatively charged medium. This makes a potential difference of  -70mV. This state is called the resting potential. When the membrane is subjected to a stimulus, the positive charges enter to inside and the negative charges exit to the outside. The potential difference now becomes +40mV. This state is called the depolarization state. The point of stimulation acts as a new stimulus for the next point and so on. The membrane sooner gains its permeability again and the positive charges return to the outside and the negative charges to inside. This state is called repolarization.

The nerve impulse reaches the synapse. There are some neurotransmitters that are excited by the nerve impulse coming and carry the message across the membrane. Some receptors receive theses neurotransmitters on the dendrites of the next neuron. These receptors act as a stimulus for the new cell.

Find the number of ways to purchase 5 different kinds of drinks from a selection of 13 drinks.

[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.

Well; You have the classics

1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class. 

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website. 

Personally I prefer fantasy novels; 

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist 
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery 

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind 
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

Enzymes are proteins that are biological catalysts

They reduce the activation energy required for a reaction to occur and thus speed up a reaction

Temperature, above a certain point (optimum temperature) causes them to break down and they are gradually destroyed (denaturing)

They work best at a particular pH (optimum pH) and are once again destroyed by low or high pH’s

They have a specific shape, with one particular part, known as the active site, that is specific to the substrate they speed the reaction of. These means they are specific to one type of reaction.

They aren’t used in the reaction so they’re re-usable.

If it isn’t one of these then it is not one of the properties of enzymes

According to the question, an example of a type of research that could result in group harm is a study of the genetic links between DNA samples found at a prehistoric central Asian archaeological site and west coast Native American tribes.

Research studies, such as psychological studies can put a participant in a state that is not pleasant or make them uncomfortable for the purpose of learning about their feeling or reactions towards a particular situation.  

Further Explanation

The consequences of this can cause psychological harm that can show itself through feeling depressed, embarrassed, shameful and guilty. It can cause loss of self confidence.

If researcher collects information about event that are upsetting or highly disturbing, there is a likely chances that the participants would be psychologically disturb or upset.

Collecting information that has to do with painful experiences, sexual trauma could upset the participants and it could result into psychological issues

However, harm is one of the most important thing that IRB (institutional review board) keep in mind when reviewing research for the purpose of ethical and legal soundness.

The type of research that could cause harm to the subject matter may take longer before it is approved and sometimes not approved.

Also the federal government set the threshold for minimum risk of harm.

The correct options are:

  • military dictatorships
  • rebellions and insurgencies
  • high rates of poverty

After gaining its independence, the young nation faced several problems: the country had to be rebuilt from the ravages of war and reach an agreement with several Japanese collaborators and entrepreneurs to begin their economic development. Meanwhile, the Hukbalahap, a rebel communist army that previously fought against the Japanese, remained active in rural areas. Finally, this threat was addressed by the Secretary of National Defense and later president Ramón Magsaysay, although some sporadic cases of communist insurgency continued to be presented. In 1965, Ferdinand Marcos was elected president, with his wife Imelda Marcos at his side. As the Constitution forbade being re-elected more than twice for the presidential office, at the end of his second term he declared martial law on September 21, 1972. To continue governing by decree, he used as arguments the political division, the tension of the War Cold and the specter of the communist rebellion and the Islamic insurgency in the country. Thus began a dictatorship that lasted more than ten years and was characterized by strict control of the economy and political repression.

The return of democracy and reforms to the government after the events of 1986 were hampered by the national debt, corruption, coup attempts, a persistent Communist insurgency and Islamic separatist movements. Although the economy improved during the administration of Fidel V. Ramos, who was elected president in 1992, the start of the 1997 Asian financial crisis halted these advances.

A change in a sequence of DNA bases in a bacterial cell has resulted in a mutation. This mutation has increased the ability of the bacteria to break down and digest organic molecules in the environment. Bacteria with this mutation are better able to find and utilize food sources. According to the theory of natural selection, what is MOST likely to occur in future generations of this bacteria? A) The relative frequency of the mutation will increase as time passes. B) Because the mutation has changed the DNA of the bacteria, a new species will be formed. C) Because the mutation is abnormal, the mutation will become more rare with every passing generation. D) Bacteria with the mutation will increase in number until the food supply is exhausted, causing the bacteria to become extinct.

Answer:

The correct answer would be B. CO, which comes from fossil fuel–powered engines, such as cars.

As the name suggests the primary pollutant is defined as the pollutant emitted directly from the source. For example, carbon monoxide which is produced due to incomplete combustion is emitted directly from cars, buses et cetera.

In contrast, secondary pollutant refers to the pollutant which is formed after reacting with other pollutants in the atmosphere. For example, nitrogen dioxide which is formed when NO reacts with oxygen, acid rain which is formed when nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide reacts with water present in atmosphere et cetera.

In the 1980’s (and still today to some extent) the drug cartels the boss in Columbia. For example, the Cali Cartel was able to bribe law enforcement officials in Columbia to avoid prosecution. They ran wiretaps on the government to know when they were getting close to being caught, which is incredibly impressive since it’s hard for other governments to wiretap the law enforcement divisions of another country. The cartel had zero fear of being prosecuted in a Columbian court because it was very likely that they had not only bribed the judge- but also the official that selects the judge for cases. The Cali Cartel was far from the only drug cartel in Columbia that existed with the aforementioned capabilities; though it certainly was the most prolific. 

Basically, the Columbian government had lost control of the situation and no longer possessed the ability to contain any of the cartel’s criminal activity. Luckily for the citizens of Columbia, the government was able to recognise/admit this, which was the main (and pretty much only) rationale for the Columbian government setting up the extradition treaty that they did with the US.
The Treaty was actually very successful and is widely considered to be the worst threat to face the cartels at the time. Some of the cartels did attempt to influence the trials that went on in the US, but very few had any success, and the ones that did weren’t able to do enough to sway verdicts. Even though the government could extradite any Columbian citizen that it suspected of drug trafficking, meaning that they didn’t require conclusive evidence (just circumstantial evidence), almost all of the trials that took place in the US ended in a prosecution of some sort. 

The treaty reached peak success during the time that it was supported by the then Columbian Justice Minister Rodrigo Lara Bonilla, and during this period of time, the treaty forced all of the major cartel drug lords into hiding out of Columbia. 

Hope that answers your question, it’s a little bit longer than what most people are looking for on this site, but you have to know a fair amount about the situation to really understand IMO. Cheers!

What is the best description of an organism that is fit for natural selection

[ad_1]

Answer: Tidal waves , light , temperature, salinity etc are the environmental factors that affect life of organisms on rock shores.

Explanation:

Tidal waves- it is the highest threat to organisms live on rocky shores. Inspite of their strong muscular foot , they are unable to protect themselves from high waves.

Salinity- it means saltiness. When water gets evaporates from rock , salt is left behind. If water becomes too salty then organisms have to leave that water.

Temperature – inter tidal zone has extreme temperature. Thise organisms who lives in this zone are resistant to changes to survive.

Light – when there is too much sun rays the organisms becomes dry.

Hence , tidal waves , light , temperature, salinity etc are the environmental factors that affect life of organisms on rock shores.

Explanation:

Every option offered makes it clear that it is raining. However, the question has asked us to find the one that shows it is a dark and stormy night through action. That is precisely what the third option does:

Andy squinted in the darkness and walked headlong into the rain.

The action of squinting makes it clear that darkness surrounds Andy. The night is not only dark, though, but also stormy, since Andy walks headlong into the rain. The verbs “squint” and “walk”, combined with the nouns “darkness” and “rain” express, through action, that it is a dark and stormy night.

What are the benefits and consequences of artificial selection?

[ad_1]

Listed below are examples of existing and potential benefits offered by the use of rDNA biotechnology.

Plant Attribute Benefits. rDNA biotechnology- derived food crops offer growers: increased crop resistance to pests, disease, and environmental stress; increased crop yields; and decreased production costs. Potential advantages for consumers include: improved organoleptic and nutritional quality; improved shelf-life of fresh fruits and vegetables; and reduced allergen concentrations.

Food Technology Uses of Bioprocessing. rDNA biotechnology enables optimization of the microorganisms and enzymes necessary for processing of fermented foods such as cheeses, pickles, wine, beer, and sausages, resulting in food ingredients of higher quality and purity as well as ingredients not otherwise available.

Environmental Benefits. rDNA biotechnology has been used to develop herbicide-tolerant crops that enable the use of comparatively environmentally benign herbicides and increase the flexibility in crop rotation. In addition, these crops facilitate no-till agriculture, which reduces fossil fuel use, soil erosion, and air pollution. Increased yields on existing farm land, especially through crops adapted to local soil or drought conditions, will help provide the necessary quantities of food as the world’s population grows without converting our remaining forests into farm land.

Diet, Nutrition, and Health Benefits. rDNA biotechnology has the potential to provide more food to the world and foods of improved nutritional composition to meet the specific needs of different populations. In addition, specific plant components now recognized for their ability to contribute to improved health and the prevention of some degenerative diseases could also be incorporated into foods.

1.Fossils

2.studies of ancient Climate

3.Geology of continents

2.The difference between continental drift and plate tectonics is that the theory of continental drift states that the world was made up of a single continent.The theory of plate-tectonics, on the other hand, states that earth’s surface is broken into numbers of shifting plates or slabs.

3.The tectonic plates are made up of Earth’s crust and the upper part of the mantle layer underneath. Together the crust and upper mantle are called the lithosphere and they extend about 80 km deep.May 21, 2008

4.The continental crust is the layer of granitic, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks which form the continents and the areas of shallow seabed close to their shores, known as continental shelves. It is less dense than the material of the Earth’s mantle and thus “floats” on top of it.

5.(a) demonstration of the ruggedness and youth of the ocean floorecho-sounding devices and primitive sonar systems(b) confirmation of repeated reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field in the geologic pastmagnetic instruments (magnetometers)(c) emergence of the seafloor-spreading hypothesis and associated recycling of oceanic crustdrilling core samples at specific locations(d) precise documentation that the world’s earthquake and volcanic activity is concentratedalong oceanic trenches and submarine mountain ranges earthquake-recording instruments called seismograph)

6.Trenches are formed by subduction, a geophysical process in which two or more of Earth’s tectonic plates converge and the older, denser plate is pushed beneath the lighter plate and deep into the mantle, causing the seafloor and outermost crust (the lithosphere) to bend and form a steep, V-shaped depression.

Why is it said that natural selection acts on phenotypes rather than on the genetic material of an organism?

[ad_1]

Similarities: Natural Selection and Artificial Selection both result in the alteration of the gene pool. It can also change phenotypes of different species’.

Differences: Artificial Selection is when a specific trait is not wanted, and so it is not bred.

For example, humans did not like how yellow peas looked. They liked the healthy looking green better. So, they killed the yellow peas, and bred the green peas with other green pea plants, and right now it is almost completely out of our gene pool.

Natural Selection is when something naturally occurs, such as a natural disaster, famine, plague, invasive species introduction.

For example, if 10 camels lived in a desert, but one of them didn’t have as good of a metabolism and stayed full longer, then that one would survive, while the others might not.

Recall how Alfred Russel Wallace’s theory compared to Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.

[ad_1]

Answer:

1. The correct answer would be A. The fact that the bone structures are similar supports the theory that the animals shared a common ancestor.

Homologous structures refer to the organs or structures which are similar in structure but perform different functions as a result of adaptation towards different ecosystems.

2. The correct answer would be B. Eukarya

The organism contains a nucleus and other organelles including chloroplast. Thus, it can be correctly placed in Eukarya (eukaryotes).

3. The correct answer would be C. Plants have a two-part life cycle, spending part of their lives in a diploid phase and part in a haploid phase; humans spend their lives in a diploid phase and produce gametes that are haploid.

Plants usually show alternation of a generation that is, two-part life cycle. Humans do not show alternation of generation. They are diploid organisms which produce haploid gametes for reproduction.

4. The correct answer would be A. to defend the body from invading pathogens

The immune system is a defense system of our body. It protects our body from infections and toxins. It includes organs like thymus, lymph nodes, bone marrow et cetera.

5. The correct answer would be B. Plants produce glucose that can be broken down by cellular respiration; animals digest foods to obtain glucose for use in cellular respiration.

The energy demands of animals, as well as plants, are met by the process called cellular respiration. Glucose is the major substrate for this process. Plants are able to synthesize glucose through photosynthesis however, animals need to digest food to obtain glucose.
