## Which of the following demonstrates the confusion that at times can arise for individuals living in two distinct cultures? A. When Vincent refuses to throw away his chess set. B. When Waverly thinks Santa is trying to trick her by asking her age. C. When Waverly is reprimanded for whining in the store. D. When the family calls Waverly MeiMei instead of her American name.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

8 lines. Rhyme scheme aabbccdd. If I managed to write that in about 4 minutes, you could write something much better and longer in like 30 minutes. You can use my rubbish poem as inspiration lol. Good luck X

## The area behind the free throw line on a basketball court is a semicircle with a 6-foot radius. What is the area of the semicircle?

The basis to respond this question are:

1) Perpedicular lines form a 90° angle between them.

2) The product of the slopes of two any perpendicular lines is – 1.

So, from that basic knowledge you can analyze each option:

a.Lines s and t have slopes that are opposite reciprocals.

TRUE. Tha comes the number 2 basic condition for the perpendicular lines.

slope_1 * slope_2 = – 1 => slope_1 = – 1 / slope_2, which is what opposite reciprocals means.

b.Lines s and t have the same slope.

FALSE. We have already stated the the slopes are opposite reciprocals.

c.The product of the slopes of s and t is equal to -1

TRUE: that is one of the basic statements that you need to know and handle.

d.The lines have the same steepness.

FALSE: the slope is a measure of steepness, so they have different steepness.

e.The lines have different y intercepts.

FALSE: the y intercepts may be equal or different. For example y = x + 2 and y = -x + 2 are perpendicular and both have the same y intercept, 2.

f.The lines never intersect.

FALSE: perpendicular lines always intersept (in a 90° angle).

g.The intersection of s and t forms right angle.

TRUE: right angle = 90°.

h.If the slope of s is 6, the slope of t is -6

FALSE. – 6 is not the opposite reciprocal of 6. The opposite reciprocal of 6 is – 1/6.

So, the right choices are a, c and g.

## A 77-year-old woman slipped and fell on a throw rug and landed on her left hip. she denies striking her head or losing consciousness. assessment of her left leg reveals that it is shortened and externally rotated. distal pulses, sensory, and motor functions are intact. you should:

Charlie had a waist circumference of 47 inches and a BMI of 29 this shows that she is overweight. BMI test level is high from normal ranges shows that she is at higher risk of disease. She should lose weight and concern to the doctor.

Further Explanation:

Body mass index (BMI) is a measured value derived from the height of a person and mass.

BMI indicates whether the person is healthy or overweight mainly used by physicians.

• Range of BMI in a normal person is 18.5-25

• Range of BMI in skinfold person is 25-30

• Range of BMI in underweight person is 15-18.5

The skinfold measurement test is used to determine a person’s body fat percentage and body composition.

In this test, we are the proportion of body fat by determining skinfold thickness at pinches specific part of the body. The estimate of these folds is determined the fat beneath the skin, also called subcutaneous adipose tissue.

The tester pinches the skin at the site and drags the fold of skin away from the muscle so only the fat tissue and skin are being held. The skinfold thickness is measured by skinfold calipers in millimeters.

Skin test includes the seven locations of the body:

1. Triceps

3. Suprailiac

4. Pectoral

5. Subscapular

6. Midaxilla

7. Abdomen

Charlie had a waist circumference of 47 inches and a BMI of 29 this shows that she is overweight. Females with waist size 47 inches have higher risk of having disease. BMI test level is high from normal ranges shows that she is at higher risk of disease.She should lose weight and concern to the doctor.

## What is the denotation of the word “cast” in this excerpt? drop casually throw with force toss lightly release into the air

Ronald Reagan

• I challenged the Soviet Union to tear down the Berlin Wall.  I also maintained a hard line against communism.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

• My administration created the idea of brinkmanship–going to the brink of nuclear war to achieve our aims.

Margaret Thatcher

• I was good friends with leaders of the Soviet Union and the United States and helped end the Cold War by bringing them together.

Nikita Khrushchev

• I pulled missiles out of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and prevented the Cold War from escalating into a nuclear war.

Harry S. Truman

• I made the decision to drop the atomic bomb, but I also became known for Marshall Plan and the doctrine of containment.

Josef Stalin

• I began the Cold War in Europe by creating the Communist Bloc.  I also stole atomic secrets from the United States and built my own bomb, thus escalating tension in the early Cold War.

Mikhail Gorbachev

• My policies were designed to give more personal and economic freedom to people in the Soviet Union.  I had good relations with many leaders in the Western Bloc.

I’d like to explain more about one item in the list above — the policy of “brinkmanship” during the Eisenhower administration.

John Foster Dulles was Secretary of State under US President Dwight Eisenhower. Dulles held the office from 1953 to 1959.  He wanted a change from what had been the “containment policy” which the US had followed during the Truman Administration, as recommended then by American diplomat George F. Kennan.   Dulles felt the containment approach put the United States in a weak position, because it only was reactive, trying to contain  communist aggression when it occurred.

Dulles sought to push America’s policy in a more active direction; some have labeled his approach “brinkmanship.”  In an article in LIFE magazine in 1956, Dulles said, “The ability to get to the verge without getting into the war is the necessary art.”  He wasn’t afraid to threaten massive retaliation against communist enemy countries as a way of intimidating them.

d) Instead of giving in to death, people should fight against it.

Throughout the poem, the lines “Do not go gentle into that good night” and “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” are repeated. The “good night” and “dying of the light” are different ways of saying death. The narrator is telling the audience to fight death, rage against it, don’t go gentle.

The poem is written in the form of a Villanelle with a specific rhyme scheme and repeating line pattern. Villanelle’s also have a structure to it’s overall content. The subject of the poem increases in intensity as the poem goes on. In this poem, the speaker talks about why different types of people fight death. In the last stanza, the speaker changes from talking about others to speaking directly to his father and begging his father to fight death.
