Which sentence from the essay best conveys the central idea of "Life Without Go Go Boots"? The rest of my life would be endurable if I had a pair of those white, calf-high confections with little black heels I learned what my mother had been trying to tell me all along: high fashion has the shelf life of potato salad. Style is mostly a matter of acting as if you know very well what you look like, thanks, and are just delighted about it I have a feeling the day might come when my daughter will beg to be a slave of conventional fashion.

How did the Atlantic Slave Trade impact Western Africa?


Some Africans captured in wars were sold to European traders by other Africans. Many were captured but died of disease or starvation before arriving. The Transatlantic slave trade profoundly diminished Africa’s prospective to develop economically and uphold its social and political stability.

Socially, the biggest impact the Trans-Atlantic slave trade had on West Africa was a decrease in their population.

Which of the following best explains the ruling of the Slave Trade Act of 1807? a) it forbade Africa from selling slaves. b) it forbade the slave trade in the USA. c) it forbade slaves to enter the USA. d) it forbade the selling slaves world wide.


Answer:

Noninvolvement in world affairs is termed “isolationism”.

Explanation:

Isolationism is a concept that designates a political inclination that defends the isolation and nonintervention of a country in international conjunctural issues. That is, putting it in simpler terms, isolationism proposes that a country does not intervene in any way in an external conflict that afflicts another nation or group of nations so that it does not end up affecting their interests.  

Basically, isolationism causes that the country that adopts this position is totally isolated from everything that happens in the rest of the world so that nothing affects it in its possible benefits.

How did great britains slave trade act of 1807 contribute to the end of slavery in the americas?


The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

How did the Atlantic slave trade lead to the stagnation of Africa’s culture and economy


  The Slave Trade Act of 1807 was made by the United Kingdom Parliament and prohibited the slave trade in the british empire. The promoters of the bill were the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade and they decided to concentrate on a campaign to persuade the Parliament to abolish the slave trade instead of the slavery itself because they believed that it was more likely to succed. They also believed that if the trade was ceased eventually the slavery would come to an end.

  The act abolished the slave trade in all the British colonies  and turn into illegal to carry slaves in British ships. The United Kingdom used his influence tpwards other nations to pressed other countries to put an end to the Slave trade. United States abolish the Atlantic slave trade but maintain the policy about the internal slave trade. Britain kept pressing other european countries to stopped slave trade considering it as “repulsive to the principles of natural justice”.

  With the Slave Trade Act Britain began a movement that was received by other major slave exporters countries to stopped with this practice and this way contribute to the end of slavery. This specially affect the americas because they were the biggest importers of slaves and by cutting the flow of them they began to lack workforce because of the precarious conditions. Also the Act reflected a growing sensation among the world´s population that slavery was wrong and went against the natural justice.  

  I hope the answe help you. If you have any doubt don´t hesitate to ask. Regards

How does the excerpt from Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl reflect the theme of self-reliance? Point to specific ideas or events that support this theme.


In Harriet Jacobs’ slave narrative, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, the protagonist Linda plans to escape her master, Dr. Flint. She is aided in her escape attempt by friends and family who offer her advice and shelter. However, Linda understands that the more people who know about her plan and hiding place, the more likely she is to get caught, which is why she must act alone and rely only on herself. 

I did as I was ordered. But now that I was certain my children were to be put in their power, in order to give them a stronger hold on me, I resolved to leave them that night. I remembered the grief this step would bring upon my dear old grandmother; and nothing less than the freedom of my children would have induced me to disregard her advice.

In this way, it is Linda’s self-reliance that gives her the courage to escape from her master’s house. plato

What was the effect of Nat Turner’s rebellion? A. it became legal to teach slaves to read and write B. Laws went into effect to prevent freeing the slaves C. The fugitive slave law was repealed in the south D. White people in the north developed the Underground Railroad


1- The correct answer is D. The region that contained the most Russian missile sites in Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis was Pinar del Rio, as the majority of Russian Missile were located in the northwest coast of the island.

2- The correct answer is D. In Cuba, Soviet tank units were deployed in the ports of Havana and Cienfuegos.

The USSR also used the radioelectronic intelligence center in Lourdes (south of Havana), set up in 1967 and located 250 kilometers from the United States, which allowed the interception of radio data in almost all American territory.

3- The correct answer is A. The Line of Demarcation was established near the 38th Parallel because it divided Korea into two equal halves.

After Japan’s surrender in World War II in 1945, the parallel was established as the boundary between the Soviet (North) and American (South) occupation zones. The parallel divided the Korean peninsula approximately in half. In 1948 the line became the border between the two newly created nations; South Korea and North Korea.

4- The correct answer is B, Central America.

The Good Neighbor Policy was a political initiative created and presented by the Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration in the framework of the 7th Pan American Conference in December 1933 regarding its relations with Latin America during the 1933- 1945, when the intervention of the United States in the internal affairs of the Latin American countries was appeasing (the United States had openly invaded several countries of the region in the first years of the 20th century, such as Cuba, Mexico, Haiti, Panama, the Dominican Republic or Nicaragua. ).

5- The correct answer is D. Cuba was a serious threat to the United States during the Cold War because its proximity to the American territory made it possible for large-scale missile attacks. Cuba is only 93 miles far away from Florida, so it constituted a great menace during the Cold War.

By the time they arrived at Buchenwald, his father was ready to die. He sank into the snow and pleaded with his son to let him lie down and rest. It was at that moment that Wiesel screamed at his father to get up. He argued that if he were to lie down, he would “never wake again” (100).

Adapted from The Expansion of the United States from A Short History of the World by H.G. Wells The region of the world that displayed the most immediate and striking results from the new inventions in transport was North America. Politically, the United States embodied, and its constitution crystallized, the liberal ideas of the mid-eighteenth century. It dispensed with state-church or crown, it would have no titles, it protected property jealously as a method of freedom, and it gave nearly every adult male citizen a vote. Its method of voting was crude, and therefore its political life soon fell, but that did not prevent the newly emancipated population from developing an energy, enterprise, and public spirit far beyond that of any other contemporary population. Then came that acceleration of locomotion. It is a curious thing that America, which owes most to this acceleration in locomotion, has felt it least. The United States has taken the railway, the river steamboat, the telegraph, and so forth as though they were a natural part of their growth. They were not. These things happened to come along just in time to save American unity. The United States of today was made first by the river steamboat, and then by the railway. Without these things, the present United States would have been altogether impossible. The westward flow of population would have been far more sluggish. It might never have crossed the great central plains. The first state established beyond the river was the steamboat state of Missouri in 1821. But the rest of the distance to the Pacific was done in a few decades. If we had the resources then, it would be interesting to show a map of North America year by year from 1600 onward, with little dots to represent hundreds of people, each dot a hundred, and stars to represent cities of a hundred thousand people. For two hundred years, the reader would see the little dots creeping slowly along the coastal districts and navigable waters, spreading still more gradually into Indiana, Kentucky, and so forth. Then somewhere about 1810 would come a change. Things would get more lively along the river courses. The dots would be multiplying and spreading. That would be the steamboat. Then from about 1850 onward would come the black lines of the railways, and after that the little black dots would not simply creep but run. Then suddenly here and then there would appear the first stars to indicate the first great cities of a hundred thousand people. First one or two and then a multitude of cities—each like a knot in the growing net of the railways. The growth of the United States is a process that has no precedent in the world’s history; it is a new kind of occurrence. Such a community could not have come into existence before, and if it had, without railways it would certainly have dropped to pieces long before now. Without railways or telegraph, it would be far easier to administer California from Pekin than from Washington. But this great population of the United States of America has not only grown outrageously; it has kept uniform. Nay, it has become more uniform. The man of San Francisco is more like the man of New York today than the man of Virginia was like the man of New England a century ago. The United States is being woven by railway, by telegraph, more and more into one vast unity, speaking, thinking, and acting harmoniously with itself. Soon aviation will be helping in the work. 2. Directions: Select ALL the correct answers.Which two statements summarize main ideas of the text? Historically, innovations in travel led to westward expansion in the United States. In the early years of the United States, most male citizens had the freedom to vote. Old maps of the United States show very little migration beyond the East Coast. Transportation and communication have served to unify United States citizens. The United States now includes many cities that have a population over 100,000.

“Likely,” said Herbert, with pretended horror. “Why, we’re going to be rich, and famous, and happy. Wish to be an emperor, father, to begin with; then you can’t be henpecked.” He darted round the table, pursued by the maligned Mrs. White armed with an antimacassar. Mr. White took the paw from his pocket and eyed it dubiously. “I don’t know what to wish for, and that’s a fact,” he said slowly. “It seems to me I’ve got all I want.” What conflict in the story does this passage reveal? A. Mr. White wants to believe in the monkey’s paw because his family really needs money. B. Mr. White feels compelled to make a wish even though he’s already content with his life. C. Herbert is angry that his parents don’t believe in the magic of the monkey’s paw. D. Mrs. White is upset that Herbert is behaving disrespectfully toward his father.

Answer: B) Mr. White feels compelled to make a wish even though he’s already content with his life.

Explanation: in literature, a conflict is a struggle between opposite forces, usually between a character (the main character or a very important one) and himself (internal conflict), society or another character (external conflict). From the given options, the one that represents the conflict in the passage, is the corresponding to option B, we can see that in the phrase: “I don’t know what to wish for, and that’s a fact,” he said slowly. “It seems to me I’ve got all I want.”

What arguments is Franklin D. Roosevelt making in this excerpt from his “Four Freedoms” speech? It is true that prior to 1914 the United States often had been disturbed by events in other Continents. We had even engaged in two wars with European nations and in a number of undeclared wars in the West Indies, in the Mediterranean and in the Pacific for the maintenance of American rights and for the principles of peaceful commerce. But in no case had a serious threat been raised against our national safety or our continued independence. What I seek to convey is the historic truth that the United States as a nation has at all times maintained clear, definite opposition, to any attempt to lock us in behind an ancient Chinese wall while the procession of civilization went past. Today, thinking of our children and of their children, we oppose enforced isolation for ourselves or for any other part of the Americas. That determination of ours, extending over all these years, was proved, for example, during the quarter century of wars following the French Revolution. While the Napoleonic struggles did threaten interests of the United States because of the French foothold in the West Indies and in Louisiana, and while we engaged in the War of 1812 to vindicate our right to peaceful trade, it is nevertheless clear that neither France nor Great Britain, nor any other nation, was aiming at domination of the whole world. Americans should hold on to their isolationist tendencies as long as their own interests are not under threat. Americans must not shirk their duty to go to war because Germany is a bigger threat than previous enemies. Americans have always fought to uphold human rights and correct injustices against them. Americans have always been peaceful but should be willing to go to war to defend their allies. Americans should go to war to protect their allies against the Germans and assert their world domination. can be more than one answer.

The correct answers would be options C: ” Americans have always fought to uphold human rights and correct injustices against them” and D: “Americans have always been peaceful but should be willing to go to war to defend their allies”. In the excerpt,  Franklin Roosevelt gives various references to the fact that Americans have participated in wars before, but, always to defend justice and honor (as exemplified in the correct answers) and never with the intent of “dominating the world”. And there is no mention of Germany or isolationist tendencies, therefore options A, B and E are incorrect.

Be sure that your paragraph has a topic sentence that identifies the subject, and provide evidence (quotes) from the excerpt to support each part of the analysis. “Then I started back, with more fear than food, and went to meet the people whom I had left behind, with the greatest haste I could make. I overtook them after two day’s march and went with them till we had passed the desert and arrived at their home. Here I was not made welcome as previously, because the men as well as the women indulged in much weeping for the persons killed at Cíbola. Without tarrying I hastened in fear from that people and that valley. The first day I went ten leagues, then I went eight and again ten leagues, without stopping till I had passed the second desert. On my return, although I was not without fear, I determined to approach the open tract, situated at the end of the mountain ranges, of which I said above that I had some account. As I came near, I was informed that it is peopled for many days’ journey towards the east, but I dared not enter it, because it seemed to me that we must go to colonize and to rule that other country of the seven cities and the kingdoms I have spoken of, and that then one could see it better. So I forebore to risk my person and left it alone to given an account of what I had seen. However, I saw, from the mouth of the tract seven moderate-sized towns at some distance, and further a very fresh valley of very good land, whence rose much smoke. I was informed that there is much gold in it and that the natives of it deal in vessels and jewels for the ears and little plates with which they scrape themselves to relieve themselves of sweat, and that these people will not consent to trade with those of the other part of the valley; but I was not able to learn the cause for this. Here I placed two crosses and took possession of all this plain and valley in the same manner as I had done with the other possessions, according to my instructions.”
