My grandfather, who lost his short-term memory sometime during the first Eisenhower Administration, calls me into his study because he wants to tell me the story he’s never told anybody before again. . . . My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready? You think you’ve got the gumption?” “I think so.” “Think so?” “I know so, sir. I know I’ve got the gumption.” . . . “It was late,” he says. “Someone knocked on my stateroom door. I leaped up. In those days I slept in uniform—shoes, too.” My grandfather smiles. His face is so perfectly round that his smile looks like a gash in a basketball.

The exposition is the part of a story that introduces important background information about the setting, the characters and the main plot.

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.

A test consists of 20 problems and students are told to answer any 15 of these questions. In how many different ways can they choose the 15 questions? a. 15,504 b. 20,145 c. 23,670 d. 25,890


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.

Juanita’s boss told her that once she has worked with the company for 10 years, her salary will be increased to 3 times what she makes now plus $2,000. If s represents her original salary, which expression represents what her salary will be after 10 years at the company?


Answer:

3 hours.          

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the time taken by shoe repairman to repair one pair.

We have been given that his assistant, who takes twice as long to repair a pair of shoes. So time taken by his assistant to repair one pair of shoes would be 2x.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by repairman in one hour would be frac{1}{x}.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by assistant in one hour would be frac{1}{2x}.

We have been given that together they can fix 16 pairs of shoes in an eight-hour day. We can represent this information in an equation as:

frac{1}{x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{8}{16}

frac{1}{x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

Let us have a common denominator.

frac{2*1}{2*x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{2}{2x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{2+1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{3}{2x}=frac{1}{2}  

Upon cross multiplying our equation we will get,

2x*1=3*2

2x=3*2

frac{2x}{2}=frac{3*2}{2}

x=3

Therefore, it take 3 hours for the repairman to fix one pair of shoes by himself.

For anyone who is good with creative writing, How would you write a character being told by their parents that they are a supernatural?


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Dhara was recently in a car accident. her doctor told her that she has frontal lobe damage. how will this damage affect dhara? she will not recognize others. she will have memory loss. she will not experience fear. she will be less self-aware.


Answer:

The correct match would be:

  1. Cerebrum – responsible for speech, emotion, and memory
  2. Cerebellum – responsible for muscle coordination and balance
  3. Brain stem – responsible for involuntary muscles like the heart

The brain can be divided into three main parts:

1. Cerebrum: It is the largest part of the brain. It can be divided into two halves termed as right and left hemisphere. It can also be divided into broad regions termed as lobes (frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobe).

The main functions of the cerebrum include control of voluntary muscles, interpret information received from sensory receptors (touch, vision, hearing, vision), reasoning, learning, emotions, and speech.

2. Cerebellum: It is located below the occipital lobe in the back of the brain. The main function of the cerebellum is the coordination and precision of voluntary actions and the maintenance of posture and balance of the body.

3. Brain stem: It connects the brain with the spinal cord. It consists of the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. It helps in controlling and coordinating involuntary movements like the heart, lungs, swallowing, breathing, sneezing et cetera.

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.

Which excerpt from “Perseus” best represents a characteristic of a Greek hero? [Andromeda] had boasted that she was more beautiful than the daughters of Nereus, the Sea-god. [Athena and Hermes] told him which one was Medusa and that was important, for she alone of the three could be killed; the other two were immortal. King Acrisius of Argos had only one child, a daughter, Danaë. She was beautiful above all the other women of the land. Polydectes evidently talked to Perseus about [Gorgons]; he probably told him that he would rather have the head of one of them than anything else in the world.

Your answer is B.
Zimbabwe was at its peak during the 13th and 14th centuries by thriving on cattle herding and gold mining specifically, which created strong trade routes with all the neighboring countries.

However, entering the 15th centuries, the rivers that at one point seemed somewhat filled with gold flakes and nuggets ran out of Zimbabwe’s prime export.

A. is wrong because Timbuktu was the central region for salt mining and C. is wrong because the agricultural concern was with the cattle, and finally D. is incorrect because the Portuguese are the ones who for a time conquered a great portion of Zimbabwe.

Authors create tension to engage the readers. Tension is what makes a story  worth reading since it will touch or move the reader’s feelings. The reader’s rational side will be set aside by his/ her emotions.

These answers are not right:

A. To introduce the characters in the story and describe where the story takes place  ( This is part of the setting).

B. To reveal the author’s personal bias and opinion ( The opinion should be infered through the whole story , not jut through the tension in it).

A_____ provides students with the opportunity to tell a story that cannot be told through a transcript or application.


It’s best to earn a bachelor’s degree or an associate’s degree because when apply for a job at any said company, they want someone who completed college compared to someone who took a certification course.

For an example, if you want to become a software developer for a company, they don’t really care about you completing a certification program, anyone can do that within a few days.  A bachelor’s degree is what they want, it tells them that you completed college and you put in enough effort (and more) to say, “Oh ya dude, I passed and I’m ready for anything that hits my path!”.

I’m assuming you’re wondering if you should go to college… 

Here is my advice > Just go, it’ll be like a safety net if things start to fall apart in the future, a certification program won’t help you that much compared to an actual education that’d help you in the long run.

The author’s wants to explore the infidelity of Guinevere by the eyes of King Arthur and the author uses the sarcastic tone to achieve this.

Further Explanation:

The poem “The King Sends Three Cats to Guinevere” has been written by Marjorie Allen Seiffert. The poet speaks about the act of infidelity of Queen Guinevere.

The poem has been written in a free verse format. The tone of the poem is sarcastic. The poet had used the figurative languages in a very efficient way. The imagery and allusions from the biblical references has been used in the poem. The poet has mentioned the term ‘metaphor’ in the last stanza of the poem. This makes the poem in a unique piece of art altogether. The readers are assumed to read the poem in the way the poet wants them to read.

The cats symbolize the prevailing of the evil and at the same time, they also represent the silent observer. King Arthur has observed the activities of the Queen and hence has decided to punish her for the deeds. The poem takes the form of a warning letter to the Queen. The ending lines highlight that the queen has to pay by giving her life as a punishment.

sources.

Primary sources allow researchers to get as close as possible to original ideas, events, and empirical research as possible. Such sources may include creative works, first hand or contemporary accounts of events, and the publication of the results of empirical observations or research. We list sources for historical primary documents.

Secondary sources analyze, review, or summarize information in primary resources or other secondary resources. Even sources presenting facts or descriptions about events are secondary unless they are based on direct participation or observation. Moreover, secondary sources often rely on other secondary sources and standard disciplinary methods to reach results, and they provide the principle sources of analysis about primary sources.

Tertiary sources provide overviews of topics by synthesizing information gathered from other resources. Tertiary resources often provide data in a convenient form or provide information with context by which to interpret it.

The distinctions between primary, secondary, and tertiary sources can be ambiguous. An individual document may be a primary source in one context and a secondary source in another. Encyclopedias are typically considered tertiary sources, but a study of how encyclopedias have changed on the Internet would use them as primary sources. Time is a defining element.
