The case coming on for a hearing before the Supreme Court, that court was of opinion that the law under which the prosecution had was constitutional, and denied the relief prayed for by the petitioner. Ex parte Plessy, 45 La.Ann. 80. Whereupon petitioner prayed for a writ of error from this court, which was allowed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. MR. JUSTICE BROWN, after stating the case, delivered the opinion of the court. This case turns upon the constitutionality of an act of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana, passed in 1890, providing for separate railway carriages for the white and colored races. Acts 1890, No. 111, p. 152. The first section of the statute enacts “that all railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in this State shall provide equal but separate accommodations for the white and colored races by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations: Provided, That this section shall not be construed to apply to street railroads. No person or persons, shall be admitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them on account of the race they belong to.” The Supreme Court’s ruling in Plessy v.

In the Plessy v. Ferguson case, the Supreme Court’s ruling of the “separate but equal” law being constitutional was problematic because the “separate but equal” law accepted segregation and the discrimination that were against blacks.

What is the significance of the train in “Paul’s case” and “A journey “

Answer: In the “The Way to Wealth by Bejamin Franklin, the author uses many narrative voices to stress the importance of frugality. The essay begins as Poor Richard addresses his audience, “Courteous Reader,” and admits that few “other learned authors” have quoted him, despite his being “an eminent author of almanacs annually now a full quarter of a century” . Poor Richard does take solace in the fact that “ authority” exists. At this point in the essay, Poor Richard makes a confession: “I have sometimes quoted myself with great gravity”.

Upon observing a crowd waiting for “a vendue of merchant goods” to open for business, Poor Richard overhears the people “conversing on the badness of the times”. One person in the crowd calls out to another, “a plain clean old man, with white locks” asks him of his opinion of the times and of the “heavy taxes quite ruin the country”. The man, Father Abraham, is happy to oblige, and he gives a short speech to the crowd, while Poor Richard listens and looks on.


Father Abraham begins his speech by acknowledging that the taxes are “indeed very heavy,” but much worse than the taxes imposed by the government are the taxes of “our idleness , our folly, and from these taxes the commissioners cannot ease or deliver us by allowing an abatement”. He quotes Poor Richard here to offer the crowd advice about what to do about this problem: “God helps them that help themselves”.


As you can see, there are many narrative voices and they are important in the sense that they encourage the idea of working hard and being thrifty with the money we have.

Read the excerpt from the US Supreme court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The statute of Louisiana, acts of 1890, c. 111, requiring railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in that State, to provide equal, but separate, accommodations for the white and colored races, by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations; and providing that no person shall be permitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them, on account of the race they belong to; and requiring the officer of the passenger train to assign each passenger to the coach or compartment assigned for the race to which he or she belong; and imposing fines or imprisonment upon passengers insisting on going into a coach or compartment other than the one set aide for the race to which he or she belongs; and conferring upon officers of the train power to refuse to carry on the train passengers refusing to occupy the coach or compartment assigned to them, and exempting the railway company from liability for such refusal, are not in conflict with the provisions either of the Thirteenth Amendment or of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Which best explains why the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson was unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s ruling allowed states to deny equal protection to any person within its jurisdiction. Since the 14th Amendment did not make concessions for people born outside the US, the Supreme Court’s decision could not be applied. The Supreme Court’s decision gave individual states the freedom to make their own laws in relation to non-whites. Since segregation laws did not provide equal protections or liberties to non-whites, the ruling was not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

127=7 (mod n) means when 127 is divided by n, the division leaves a remainder of 7.

The statement is equivalent to
120=0 (mod n), meaning that n divides 120.

All divisors of 120 will satisfy the statement because 120 divided by a divisor (factor) will leave a remainder of 0.

Factors of 120 are:
n={1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60,120}, |n|=16.
You can count how many such values of n there are, and try to check that each one satisfies 127=7 mod n.

Answer:

Option C – BD=76 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

To find : How long BD should it be?

Solution :

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.

So, AD=AB=44.8 cm

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC=  x+y=84.8 …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

H^2=P^2+B^2

(44.8)^2=x^2+z^2  ………[2]

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

H^2=P^2+B^2

(72)^2=y^2+z^2 …………[3]

Subtract [2] and [3]

(72)^2-(44.8)^2=y^2+z^2-x^2-z^2

5184-2007.04=(x+y)(x-y)

3176.96=(84.8)(x-y)

37.464=x-y ……….[4]

Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y

x+y+x-y=84.8+37.464

2x=122.264

x=61.132

Substitute x in [1]

x+y=84.8

61.132+y=84.8

y=23.668

Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z

(44.8)^2=x^2+z^2

(44.8)^2=(23.668)^2+z^2

2007.04-560.174224=z^2

z=sqrt{1446.865776}

z=38.06

We know, BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

Nearest to whole number BD=76 cm

Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.

A train travels 80 kilometers in 3 hours , and 84 kilometers in 2 hours .What is the average speed ?

[ad_1]

Answer:

only one: a sky diver falling at a constant speed

Explanation:

Let’s recall that acceleration is a change in velocity, which means either a change in the speed of an object or a change in its direction.

let’s now analyze each situation:

– a race car going around a circular track at 150 mph –> here the direction of motion is changing, so the object is accelerating

a sky diver falling at a constant speed –> here both the speed and the direction are constant, so the object is NOT accelerating

– a heavy box sliding across the floor, after being released  –> here the speed is changing (In particular, it will decrease, as the friction will slow down the box), so the object is accelerating

– a bowling ball colliding with a pin –> here the speed is changing (when the ball colides with the pin, it slows down), so the object is accelerating

– a vibrating guitar string –> the speed of the vibrating string changes during the vibration (and the direction as well), so the object is accelerating

– a baseball flying through the air –> the speed of the baseball is changing (because there are unbalanced forces acting on the flying ball: the gravity and the air resistance), so the object is accelerating

– a child swinging on a swing –> the speed of the child is changing (and the direction as well) during the oscillation, so the object is accelerating

So, there is only 1 situation in which objects are NOT accelerating:

a sky diver falling at a constant speed

[ad_1]

This particular excerpt, makes part of the poem “Aunt Imogen”, written by Edwin Arlington Robinson, and which was published inside his bigger work “Collected Poems”, in 1921. In essence, “Aunt Imogen” talks about the experiences lived by three young children and their mother every time their beloved Aunt Imogen, visits them once a year. However, the poem also remarks the difference between the woman Imogen wants to project to others, the funny and carefree person, and her true self, which is riddled with sadness for the fact that she cannot have what her sister has; motherhood. In stanza 4, the poem, however, shows that there is one person who is not swayed by the false self shown by Imogen and can see the truth of her heart; Young George. Through his eyes, and words, Imogen sees the true image inside her and seems to be reborn by the experience as she understands her desires and wishes and accepts that they will not be fulfilled. In this particular piece from that stanza, what the words of the child cause on Imogen is a feeling of pain, deep pain, as she is made forcefully aware of the truth inside and the sadness that has always been there, belying the image she wants others to see.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

1. ANSWER: D. All of the above

The best way to handle someone who might be tempted to drive under the influence of alcohol would be to stop them from driving at all costs. This could be achieved by following any of the three options listed among the choices. Calling for a taxi, assigning a sober driver, and checking with the school’s safety programs would help get rid of the temptation.

2. ANSWER: D. None of the above

BAC, or Blood Alcohol Concentration (sometimes referred to as Blood Alcohol Content) is a measure of the amount of alcohol in a person’s bloodstream. This measure is used to identify the level of alcohol intoxication for medical or legal purposes.

At a BAC level of 0.04-0.05%, the intoxicated person is said to have a feeling of well-being. The person might feel a sense of euphoria, warmth or a fuzzy feeling. This range is not given among the choices.

3. ANSWER: D. Both A and B

As self-explanatory as it sounds, drinking in fewer quantities per hour and choosing drinks with lesser alcohol content will actually prevent one’s BAC from rising to dangerous levels. As explained earlier, BAC is the measure of one’s level of alcohol intoxication; thus, the lesser you drink, the less your BAC would be.

Eating before and during drinking actually help slow down the absorption of alcohol to a person’s bloodstream thus this should not be avoided.

4. ANSWER: A. Has to do with how quickly alcohol enters the bloodstream.

As briefly mentioned in the previous item, the rate of absorption is all about how fast the alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream. This is the reason why eating before and during drinking is actually good for you. Eating will make the rate of absorption slower, thus making you sober for a longer period.

5. ANSWER: D. Both A and B

No, it’s not true that alcohol does not effect some people. Regardless of tolerance, the higher the level of intoxication or BAC the person has, the more likely they are to lose control of their actions and feel tired, depressed, and/or nauseous. Drinking heavily will have these serious consequences no matter how “immune” to alcohol people claim to be.

1. She entered the large, dilapidated castle fearfully.

2. The door squeaked loudly as she pushed it open. She paused, listening carefully.

3. Hearing nothing, she pushed the old door open just wide enough to slip through.

4. Before she closed the door, she glanced behind her. Fat white snowflakes fell in tight circles like dozens of icy ballerinas.

5. A thick blanket of snow already covered the grass and sidewalk. She would never make it home tonight.

6. She closed the door gently and it clicked close with a solid finality. She felt her heart sink to the pit of her stomach like a stone.

7. The foyer was lit soft, dim glow created from candles flickering along the lofty ceiling.

8. The light threw large, frightening shadows that forced her to stay close to the wall.

9. She walked tentatively down the hall, the heels of her shoes clicking sharply against the hard stone.

10. At the end of the hallway, she paused suddenly, unsure of which way to turn. The left fork was long and dark. She could hear the foreboding laughter of children and the melody of a piano. But to the right… the right was lit with a weak candle that was already fluttering in an unseen wind. Taking a deep breath, she turned right.

To be able to analyze the elements used by William Carlos William´s in his poem: “The Red Wheelbarrow”, we must first understand these two literary and poetic movements that affected the way that literature was written from the end of the 19th century to the 20th century.

First, modernism is a literary movement that originates at the end of the 19th century and influences most of the 20th century, especially writers from Europe and North America. In essence, modernism was born from the philosophical principles and ideals set forth by such thinkers as Sigmund Freud and Ernst Mach and it believes that literature needed to break off from the traditions and ideals that had been present in the past. Particularly, they were very much influenced by the aftereffects of World War I and believed in going into a simpler form of writing, more concise and direct and less filled with prose and abstract ideas. On the other hand lies Imagism, an Anglo-American 20th century movement that affected poetry mostly and helped to jumpstart modernism in literature. In essence, Imagism believed in the need to break off from certain poetic traditions that had been set during the Romantic and Victorian eras, they proposed a much simpler use of verse forms, instituting the free verse style, and believed in the need for the use of more direct and simpler images and an economy of language. Finally, they believed in the observation and importance of underlining the characteristics and essence of a single object  through the simplification of the elements that make part of said object. One example, in another form of art, would be Cubism. One of the most important representatives of this movement, precisely, was William Carlos Williams.

In the poem, The Red Wheelbarrow, you can see these elements proposed by both the modernists and imagists. It is a really short poem, each stanza with only two lines, with a single object being identified and mentioned; the wheelbarrow. All focus is on this particular element and all defining objects around it only serve to underline the characteristics that make it up. There is also the use of very simple language, very simple imagery and a freestyle that makes its reading lead you to think of only one thing: the wheelbarrow.

Each car on a train has 200 seats. How many seats are on a train with 8 cars?

[ad_1]

Question 1:
Because we start with the year 2000, we must subtract 2000 from 2015 giving us t= 15 years.  
Question 2:
Like Question 1, we must subtract 2000 from 2010, giving us t=10 years.  We then plug t=10 into the first equation, giving 1.5*10+42, which equals 57.  Then because this number is in thousands of dollars, we know that the average income is equal to 57,000 dollars.  
Question 3:  
For this problem, we can use the same value for t as we used in Question 2, t=10 years, because we are dealing with the same date, 2010.  We then plug this value of t into the second equation, giving 0.3*10+8.4, which equals 11.4.  We then multiply this number by 1 million because this number is in millions of people giving an answer of 11,400,000 Hispanic people in 2010.
Question 4:
We must take the number 11,400,000. from Question 3 and put this into scientific notation by moving the decimal point to the left until there is only one number of the left side of the decimal point and multiplying our result of that by 10 to the power of how many places we moved the decimal point, giving us 1.14*10^7(^ means to the power).  
Question 5:
The total income of all Hispanic families is going to be equal to the number of total Hispanic families (0.3t+8.4) times the income of one average Hispanic family (1.5t+42).  However, we first must recognize that the formula for the number of Hispanic families is in millions, but the formula for the average income of one Hispanic family is in thousands.  Since thousands is less than millions we will change both will change the formula for the number of Hispanic families to thousands by multiplying the first equation by 1000.  This gives us an a new equation of 300t+8400 for the number of Hispanic families in thousands.  Now we can multiply the two equations together using the FOIL Method (First, Outer, Inner, Last).  This gives us a resulting equation of (1.5t*300t+42*8400+42*300t+8400*1.5t).  When we multiply out these terms, we get (450t^2+352800+12600t+12600t).  Since there are multiple terms with the same power of t, we can combine like terms and condense the equation to 450t^2+352800+25200t.  Since there are some pretty big numbers in this equation, we can divide the whole equation, which is in thousands, by one thousand, which in turn will make the equation in millions.  This yields (.45t^2+352.8+25.2t) in millions.  This is the equation for the total income of all Hispanic families in a given year after the year 2000 where t is equal to the current year minus 2000.
