What do people on the ship do after they see Icarus fall into the sea

[ad_1]

Answer:

The people on the ship keep on sailing after seeing Icarus fall into the sea.

Explanation:

The poem Musee des Beaux Arts by W. H. Auden contrasts the feelings of those who are suffering and those who are not. People who are not suffering seem to simply ignore and walk away from those who are, as if it’s an inconvenience for them to even pay it the slightest attention. To the poem’s speaker, artists are capable of capturing such suffering and of representing it in their work.

The painting of Icarus’ fall from the sky into the ocean shows precisely that: how those who are safe inside the ship did not care about the boy they had just seen falling into the cold, fatal waters. As we can see it the following lines:

In Breughel’s Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away

Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may

Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,

But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone

As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green

Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen

Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,

Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.

Which act by the British government caused the american colonists to write the declaration of independence and separate from great Britain? A) the destruction of a ship containing a load of British tea. B) the killing of several colonists by a group of British soldiers. C) the outlawing of slavery in all the american colonies. D) the requirement that the colonists pay taxes on British goods.

[ad_1]

The right answer is “D) the requirement that the colonists pay taxes on British goods.”

The historic event known as the Boston Tea Party occurred on December 16, 1773 in the city of the same name, in the United States. The action was a protest carried out by the settlers of the country against the high taxes levied by the British government. The incident is considered a key event in the unfolding of the American Revolution.

The men who participated in the protest were imitated in many other cities of the country and ended up being known as the first heroes of the movement for the independence of the United States. After the revolt, the English government severely punished the inhabitants of Boston, closing the port of the city. Three years later, 13 colonies declared independence and founded the United States of America.

A ship traveled for 4 hours heading west and for 5 hours heading north. If the total distance traveled was 119 miles, and the ship traveled 5 miles per hour faster west, at what speed was the ship traveling west

[ad_1]

To answer this problem, we will use the formula of
hypotenuse:

c^2 = a^2 + b^2

Where,

c = total distance traveled / displacement = 119 miles

a = distance traveled north = 5 hours * x mph =  5 x

b = distance traveled west = 4 hours * (x + 5) mph = 4 (x
+ 5)

Substituting to the equation:

119^2 = (5 x)^2 + [4(x + 5)]^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x + 5)^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x^2 + 10 x + 25)

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 x^2 + 160 x + 400

0 = 41 x^2 + 160 x – 13,761

x =[ – b ± sqrt (b^2 – 4ac)]/ 2a

x = [- 160 ± sqrt (160^2 – 4 * 41 * (– 13,761))] / 2 * 41

x = – 1.95 ± 18.42

x = -20.37 , 16.47

Since speed cannot be negative, therefore x = 16.47

Therefore the speed of the ship travelling west is:

x +
5 = 21.47 mph         (ANSWER)

What does Brueghel’s painting include that isn’t mentioned in Ovid’s original myth about Icarus? A. A Shepherd B. The sun C. A ship D.Daedalus

[ad_1]

The correct answer to what does Brueghel’s painting include that isn’t mentioned in Ovid’s original myth about Icarus is C. A ship.

In Ovid’s original myth, Icarus and his father Daedalus escape from the island of Crete flying with wings made by Daedalus using feathers and bee wax. While they succeed in flying, Icarus ignores his father’s warning and flies too close to the sun. The wax melts and he falls to the sea and drowns.

Ovid mentions obviously the sun and Daedalus, since they are crucial elements of the myth, but he also mentions a ploughman and a shepperd who are “astonished and thinks to see gods approaching them through the aether.”

The only element that is not mentioned in the myth and appears in the painting is the ship, which may have been included to give more power to the composition of the painting.

Arrange the events from Book 13 in the correct order. 1. Ulysses finishes recounting his adventures of his journey home to the Phaeacians. 2. Neptune turns the Phaeacians’ ship into stone. 3.Minerva meets Ulysses in the guise of a young shepherd. 4. King Alcinous makes arrangements for Ulysses’s safe journey home to Ithaca. 5. Minerva disguises Ulysses as an old beggar. 6.Ulysses falls asleep after boarding the Phaeacian ship. 7.Minerva and Ulysses plot revenge against Penelope’s suitors.

[ad_1]

Read this analysis of the Odyssey, Book XIII in order to better understand how to solve this problem.

Once Ulysses is done telling the Phaeacian court about what happened at sea, King Alcinous orders some of his men with the hero to ensure Ulysses’s safe return to Ithaca. While on the ship ride, Ulysses falls asleep. Once the boat reaches Ithaca, the men of King Alcinous do not wake him. Instead, they let him stay asleep, but they move his body from the boat onto shore and they return to their own journey. Minerva, a goddess, then places a ‘grey mist’ over Ulysses to protect him while he’s asleep. When Ulysses does finally wake up, he has some trouble remembering his land. Somehow, Ulysses deep sleep erased his memory of home. Basically this deep sleep allowed Ulysses to the last of his twenty years.

The fact that the Phaeacians followed Joves instructions and brought Ulysses back home anger Neptune. When the Phaeacians discover the fury of Neptune, they then try to satisfy him by making a sacrifice. Although the sacrifices they end up making don’t please Neptune. Neptune ends up sinking the Phaeacians ship by turning it into stone. Even though Jove sees an opportunity to stop Neptune, he does not. His simply also Neptune to destroy their ship.

Minerva ends up disguising herself as a shepherd when she talks to Ulysses. She does so to protect her identity and to test Ulysses. Ulysses passed Minerva’s test by not telling disguised Minerva who he really is. Pleased with this, Minerva then reveals her true identity to him. After that Minerva tells Ulysses about the suitors that are at his palace that are trying to marry his wife and take over Ithaca. Once she has went over the plan, they then plot revenge against them. Once there plan is ready Minerva disguises Ulysses as a beggar to go undercover and see which men are truly loyal.

There is a bit more, but I’ll end it there since that’s about how much information we’ll need.

Now, put the tiles in order according to the analysis.

• Ulysses finishes recounting his adventures of his journey home to the Phaeacians.

• King Alcinous makes arrangements for Ulysses’s safe journey home to Ithaca.

• Ulysses falls asleep after boarding the Phaeacian ship.

• Neptune turns the Phaeacians’ ship into stone.

• Minerva meets Ulysses in the guise of a young shepherd.

• Minerva and Ulysses plot revenge against Penelope’s suitors.

• Minerva disguises Ulysses as an old beggar.

“A ship lost at sea for many days suddenly sighted a friendly vessel. From the mast of the unfortunate vessel was seen a signal, “Water, water; we die of thirst!” The answer from the friendly vessel at once came back, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” A second time the signal, “Water, water; send us water!” ran up from the distressed vessel, and was answered, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” And a third and fourth signal for water was answered, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” The captain of the distressed vessel, at last heeding the injunction, cast down his bucket, and it came up full of fresh, sparkling water from the mouth of the Amazon River. To those of my race who depend on bettering their condition in a foreign land or who underestimate the importance of cultivating friendly relations with the Southern white man, who is their next-door neighbor, I would say: “Cast down your bucket where you are”— cast it down in making friends in every manly way of the people of all races by whom we are surrounded.” Booker T. Washington, 1895 In this passage, Washington is urging African Americans to A) start a new life in South America. B) work more closely with whites in the South. C) start a revolution against the United States. D) form groups to fight against the Ku Klux Klan.

1. Free trade

2. Competition

3. Domestic

Free trade agreements allow for easy trade between countries and can lower prices, but can create a loss of jobs for one country while the other gains employment.

The US has a free trade agreement with Mexico and Canada called the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Though it has reduced the prices of natural resources and manufactured goods, it has also resulted in jobs leaving the US and moving to Mexico. Increased free trade agreements have been signed but continue to be criticized as hurting the US job market.

1) The witches predictions foreshadow what might happen because they are predictions that are at the beginning of the play and in the middle too, so the tension is building up as to why the witches said them.

2) Macbeth’s reactions to the first 3 predictions were no other than shocked and confused. The other 3 predictions, he didn’t care because he thought he was unbeatable and nothing and nobody can stop him!! But his ambitions so go down hill as his ambitions take control over him. He is a ‘brave solider’ at the beginning of the play, but turns into a ‘dangerous’ criminal near the end of the play. Macbeth’s ambitions are his biggest weakness of everything.

3) Lady Macbeth is a clever, but deep down she is cruel as her husband is. She influenced her husband to kill Duncan, even if Macbeth didn’t want too. The term ‘coward’ was used to make Macbeth have the courage to kill Duncan. Also Lady Macbeth wanted to change from being a woman to being a man, ‘Come to my woman’s breast and take my milk for gall’ and ‘unsex me here’ meaning she want to have the courage to kill Duncan. She wants man power because women were know as the ‘weak’ ones and Lady Macbeth wanted to be the strongest one.

4) I don’t know about this one, but I have some ideas about some thought.

– Macbeth feels guilty, remorse, from killing Duncan. (He has a guilty conscience).
– He starts having hallucinations, especially after the death of Banquo. He hears voices after the murder of Duncan, ‘Macbeth does murder sleep’ and this creeps him out. And the dagger that leads him to the kings room.
– His kingship was bad to begin with.
– Macbeth’s Fate and Free will change throughout the play.

I hope this helps as much as it will help me!!! I’m sorry if I didn’t help with question 4, I didn’t know that one, but I did the other 3!!
