In this passage, Sue Macy quotes Ellen B. Parkhurst. What is Parkhurst’s viewpoint on the topic? Biking is a social activity for girls. Biking is a healthy activity for girls. Biking is an immoral activity for girls. Biking is a dangerous activity for girls. Ellen B. Parkhurst, wife of another New York minister, celebrated the advantages of bicycle riding in Washington's Evening Times. "Of course I do not believe that bicycling is immoral," she said. "A girl who rides a wheel is lifted out of herself and her surroundings. She is made to breathe purer air, see fresher and more beautiful scenes, and get an amount of exercise she would not otherwise get. All this is highly beneficial." —Wheels of Change, Sue Macy

N the story “Rip Van Winkle,” by Washington Irving, the major character flaw of the protagonist is his total devotion to his wife. True False

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:32 AM

The statement “In the story “Rip Van Winkle,” by Washington Irving, the major character flaw of the protagonist is his total devotion to his wife.” is false.  His single flaw was not his wife but instead his inability to do any work that could give him profit. He is not lazy though but the fact that he is more than willing to spend his day to his neighbors house to help them with something.

Read the following dialogue: Mark: I deserve a raise! Boss: Why do you deserve a raise? Mark: Both Rachel and Soledad make three dollars more an hour than I do, so I should make the same as they do. Boss: Both Rachel and Soledad have worked here longer than you and always receive top evaluations. Mark: Well, then I deserve a raise because I have a wife and two children at home, one of whom has a very expensive medical condition. Boss: No. Unfortunately, Mark's argument lacks proof that he deserves a raise. In fact, Mark is often late and rarely completes his work on time. But Mark still really needs a raise. Mark just learned that his boss loves the Boston Red Sox and hates the New York Yankees. How can Mark use this knowledge and alter his argument to convince his boss to give him a raise?

Boss: No. Identify at least one logical fallacy Mark presents to his boss. Explain why his arguments do not persuade his boss to give him a raise.

[ad_1]

Explanation:

One logical fallacy that Mark makes to hi boss is that He has two children at home and one of the children is suffering from serious medical conditions where Mark has to spend more money on his treatment. This is one wrong move in support of his argument to raise his salary.

          Moreover Mark arguments to provide a raise is not persuasive  because his explanation does not have any logical reason as to why he deserves a raise. Merely because his colleagues, Rachel and Soledad earns more than Mark does not imply that Mark should also be paid equal or given a raise.

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 do Mr. White’s wife and son first react to the story about the monkey’s paw?

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.

Well; You have the classics

1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class. 

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website. 

Personally I prefer fantasy novels; 

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist 
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery 

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind 
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

In American society, romantic love is considered the main reason for people to marry. On the other hand, in some societies, romantic love is considered a form of obsession or madness. In fact, even in many societies where “true love” is not considered a form of insanity, arranged marriages are still the norm. For example, in many cultures it’s believed that marriage is basically an economic arrangement. Thus, a farmer needs a wife both to bear children and to share the farm work while raising new “hands” as additional farm labor. In other societies, marriage is mainly about cementing connections between families. Indeed, most marriages between members of European royal or aristocratic lineages were primarily aimed at creating trust, loyalty, and mutual obligations between privileged and powerful families.

Odysseus is one of the few husbands who is told to have been loving and respectful to his wife. At the time he was wooing her, Helen was also on the market, yet he liked Penelope better because she was strong and smart, like him: when the suitors came to her after Odysseus had been gone so long, she came up the plan of telling them she would choose a suitor once her shroud was finished, but every night, after working all day on it, she would undo her work, putting of her choice. He has the chance for immortality and love (sex) with Circe, but turns it down in order to get home. Perhaps the best example is when Odysseus first takes her to be his wife and is driving home, when her father, Laertes, stops them and tells Penelope he wishes her to stay with him, and not go far away. Since Odysseus is the man, it is actually his choice, but, completely uncharacteristic of men in mythology, he allows Penelope to choose whether they stay with her father, or go to live in Odysseus’ home.

In the Declaration of Independence, the colonists rattle off a long long list of eighteen grievances (complaints) about King George III. 

(In truth, the colonists weren’t all that mad at the King — they were mad at Parliament, but they couldn’t complain about Parliament because that would have made it sound like they agreed that Parliament had a say over in America, which was their whole beef…they thought Parliament had no power to say anything about what happened in America. The only person they thought could control America was their King, so they had to complain about him, instead.) 

The list of grievances, like I say, is long. Here’s the list: 

1. He refused to sign laws that our colonial legislature passed, which we really needed. 

2. He wouldn’t let his colonial governors here sign them for him or enforce those laws anyway. 

3. He hasn’t made it so that we can be represented in Parliament. 

4. He made our colonial legislatures go places that made no sense, in the snow and stuff, just so that they would do what he wanted, because he picked places where he knew only the people who agreed with him were living close by enough to get there. 

5. He has closed down our colonial legislatures when he didn’t like the stuff they were wanting to do. A lot. 

6. He has sat on his hands about setting up elections for us to create new colonial legislatures after he shuts down the other ones, and dang it, we have Indians wanting to scalp us here. 

7. He hasn’t been very encouraging to people over in Europe that they should move here and help us. 

8. He hasn’t set us up enough courts and judges. 

9. The judges that he has set up suck and only do what he wants, and he bribes them. 

10. He has created a bunch of silly offices and sent people here to work in them just to fill our lives with red tape 

11. He sent the army here for God’s sake, in our cities like we’re the enemy, walking around with rifles without the permission of our legislature that they could do that. 

12. He has told his army to ignore what the governments here say, and do only what he says. 

13. He is fine signing laws that Parliament has passed that have to do with us, even though he should know that they have no power to pass laws having to do with America, and here’s some of those laws which we can’t believe he was okay with: 
13a. The army, walking around with rifles like I said, can just march into our houses and start sleeping in our bedrooms without our permission, and raiding our refrigerators. 
13b. If anyone in the army kills any of us, make it so that they don’t have a real trial, but one that kinda just slaps them on the wrist. 
13c. No one can bring anything to Boston, so that the people there can’t buy or sell anything with any other part of the world. 
13c. We have to pay taxes that Parliament (which like I say, can’t make things up for us) makes up. 
13d. We can’t have juries at our own trials to help protect our rights. 
13e. If we get accused of a crime, we have to go all the way to England just for trial sometimes, and heck, we’re not even guilty usually. 
13f. The government of Canada got completely shut down, to make us scared of what Parliament can do once they get control of a place. 
13g. Laws that say that our most basic laws even saying how we’re organized (colonies ruled only by the King, not Parliament) mean nothing. 
13h. Laws that say Parliament is in control of us now. 

14. He has declared that he isn’t in control of us anymore, because geez, now he’s actually fighting a war against us. 

15. He’s got his navy burning our towns down and stuff. 

16. He has even hired a bunch of Germans to come here and start fighting us, and they’re not fighting nice! 

17. He has let his navy pick up our citizens while they’re out boating and make them join his navy and fight against their hometown friends. 

18. He has made the Indians hate us and encouraged them to come at us with tomahawks. 

In Thomas Jefferson’s original draft, the list also contained another complaint — that the King has allowed slavery and that the King just kept on letting people ship slaves over here and own slaves. Thomas Jefferson wanted to complain about that, but not enough people in the Congress voted for it, so that complaint got taken out. 

Basically, the Declaration was written by a bunch of unhappy campers.

He had come out of the war with five inestimable blessings—his head, his wife Maria’s head and the heads of three out of their four children. As a bonus he also had his old bicycle—a miracle too but naturally not to be compared to the safety of five human heads. . . . It was unbelievable. He rubbed his eyes and looked again and it was still standing there before him. But, needless to say, even that monumental blessing must be accounted also totally inferior to the five heads in the family. This newest miracle was his little house in Ogui Overside. Which claim could use the excerpts given above as textual support? A. Although the civil war is over, the new “civil peace” is just as violent. B. Jonathan understands that he can live without things, but he cannot live without his family. C. Although Jonathan is glad the war is over, he would have been happier if it never happened. D. Jonathan optimistically expected his entire family to come out of the war uninjured.

[ad_1]

The correct answer is B. Jonathan understands that he can live without things, but he cannot live without his family.

Explanation:

In the text provided the narrator describes the way in which the character called Jonathan goes back home after the war has finished and he recognizes he feels lucky for having all the members of his family including himself alive and also, he finds his old bicycle has also survived the war. But this object does not compare to his family and because of this the narrator uses expressions such as “a miracle too but naturally not to be compared to the safety of five human heads” and “must be accounted also totally inferior to the five heads in the family” that show the most important is the well being of the family and not the bicycle.
