When the Texan revolution broke out and the war for independence began in 1835, Goliad was seen as a solid military stronghold because there was an important military supply barracks in the Fort of the Bay, built by the former Spanish Army.

Goliad was located halfway between the port of Copano, to which the Mexican army sent by sea soldiers, ammunition, armament, garrisons destined for the Alamo de San Antonio de Béjar, which functioned as the main political center of Texas.

When Goliad was taken in the second battle of the war, this forced the Mexican army to send its provisions by land, which would severely hamper logistics and would be key in the capture of General Santa María and consequent conclusion of the conflict and declaration of Independence winning the Texas Army.

Explanation:

You should capitalize words such as Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, Son, Daughter when they are used in place of the person’s name.

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.

Answer:

Georgia didn’t send representatives to the First Continental Congress, for although Georgians opposed British trade regulations, many hesitated to join the revolutionary movement. They were self-sufficient, and a growing colony. And they thought they needed the protection of British troops against a possible Indian attack.

Explanation:

The First Continental Congress was a delegate convention of 12 of the thirteen North American colonies held on September 10, 1774, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to send a written letter to King George III and Parliament calling for an end to the sanctions imposed by the Metropolis (England).

All colonies formed their association to ban trade with Great Britain.

Georgia did not send representatives, for although Georgians opposed British trade regulations, many hesitated to join the revolutionary movement. They were self-sufficient, and a growing colony. And they thought they needed the protection of British troops against a possible Indian attack.

Georgian delegates met at a provincial congress in Savannah on January 18, 1775, to discuss whether they should join the Association and elect representatives for the Second Continental Congress.

Those who were elected refused to go to Philadelphia. St. John’s Parish, acting alone, sent Lyman Hall.

Who won the electoral vote of 1824? (No one, right?)

[ad_1]

In 1820 the right to vote was extended but not to women, freed African Americans, nor Native Americans. The right to vote was granted to white men who did not own property but if they did vote, they were required to pay a poll tax, as well as show signs of literacy, and/or pass a religious exam in certain locations.

In the election of 1825, Andrew Jackson received the popular vote, with Adams finishing second. Speaker of the House Henry Clay was excluded from the voting (who also ran for election) because he finished in out of the top 3, however he was close with Adams because they shared a similar national agenda. When each state delegation voted, Adams received the majority of the votes compared to Andrew Jackson, and was elected president. Some including Jackson believe that Clay secretly helped Adams win, given that Jackson won the popular vote but was defeated due to his failure of winning the House of Representatives vote, whom Clay was the leader of and close accomplice of Adams.

The narrator of the Odyssey invokes the Muse, asking for inspiration as he prepares to tell the story of Odysseus. The story begins ten years after the end of the Trojan War, the subject of the Iliad. All of the Greek heroes except Odysseus have returned home. Odysseus languishes on the remote island Ogygia with the goddess Calypso, who has fallen in love with him and refuses to let him leave. Meanwhile, a mob of suitors is devouring his estate in Ithaca and courting his wife, Penelope, in hopes of taking over his kingdom. His son, Telemachus, an infant when Odysseus left but now a young man, is helpless to stop them. He has resigned himself to the likelihood that his father is dead.

With the consent of Zeus, Athena travels to Ithaca to speak with Telemachus. Assuming the form of Odysseus’s old friend Mentes, Athena predicts that Odysseus is still alive and that he will soon return to Ithaca. She advises Telemachus to call together the suitors and announce their banishment from his father’s estate. She then tells him that he must make a journey to Pylos and Sparta to ask for any news of his father. After this conversation, Telemachus encounters Penelope in the suitors’ quarters, upset over a song that the court bard is singing. Like Homer with the Iliad, the bard sings of the sufferings experienced by the Greeks on their return from Troy, and his song makes the bereaved Penelope more miserable than she already is. To Penelope’s surprise, Telemachus rebukes her. He reminds her that Odysseus isn’t the only Greek to not return from Troy and that, if she doesn’t like the music in the men’s quarters, she should retire to her own chamber and let him look after her interests among the suitors. He then gives the suitors notice that he will hold an assembly the next day at which they will be ordered to leave his father’s estate. Antinous and Eurymachus, two particularly defiant suitors, rebuke Telemachus and ask the identity of the visitor with whom he has just been speaking. Although Telemachus suspects that his visitor was a goddess in disguise, he tells them only that the man was a friend of his father.

book 2When the assembly meets the next day, Aegyptius, a wise Ithacan elder, speaks first. He praises Telemachus for stepping into his father’s shoes, noting that this occasion marks the first time that the assembly has been called since Odysseus left. Telemachus then gives an impassioned speech in which he laments the loss of both his father and his father’s home—his mother’s suitors, the sons of Ithaca’s elders, have taken it over. He rebukes them for consuming his father’s oxen and sheep as they pursue their courtship day in and day out when any decent man would simply go to Penelope’s father, Icarius, and ask him for her hand in marriage.

Antinous blames the impasse on Penelope, who, he says, seduces every suitor but will commit to none of them. He reminds the suitors of a ruse that she concocted to put off remarrying: Penelope maintained that she would choose a husband as soon as she finished weaving a burial shroud for her elderly father-in-law, Laertes. But each night, she carefully undid the knitting that she had completed during the day, so that the shroud would never be finished. If Penelope can make no decision, Antinous declares, then she should be sent back to Icarius so that he can choose a new husband for her. The dutiful Telemachus refuses to throw his mother out and calls upon the gods to punish the suitors. At that moment, a pair of eagles, locked in combat, appears overhead. The soothsayer Halitherses interprets their struggle as a portent of Odysseus’s imminent return and warns the suitors that they will face a massacre if they don’t leave. The suitors balk at such foolishness, and the meeting ends in deadlock.

As Telemachus is preparing for his trip to Pylos and Sparta, Athena visits him again, this time disguised as Mentor, another old friend of Odysseus. She encourages him and predicts that his journey will be fruitful. She then sets out to town and, assuming the disguise of Telemachus himself, collects a loyal crew to man his ship. Telemachus himself tells none of the household servants of his trip for fear that his departure will upset his mother. He tells only Eurycleia, his wise and aged nurse. She pleads with him not to take to the open sea as his father did, but he puts her fears to rest by saying that he knows that a god is at his side.

From the given options, the one that has the correct subject-verb agreement, is the corresponding to option B, because the subject of the sentence is “millions of dollars” which is a plural subject, therefore, the verb should be in plural form (as we can see, in option B the verb is “were”).

Which group is the most likely intended audience of the passage? In addition to studying the natural onset of teen sleep, many have looked into the amount of sleep teens need. The evidence supports the conclusion that teens need more than nine hours of sleep each night. In “Teens Need More Sleep, Experts Say,” a study reports that “almost all high school and college students do not get enough sleep.” Additionally, a work entitled “The Sleep Needs, Patterns and Difficulties of Adolescents: Summary of a Workshop” reports 26 percent of adolescents are getting 6 or fewer hours of sleep each night. With some 29 million teens in the nation, that means more than 5 million are trying to function without sufficient sleep. Along with researchers, many parents believe that the fault lies with the times. The University of California at Berkeley sponsors a website on which parents around the country weigh in on the sleep troubles their teens face. The biggest problem, they say, is the sleep deficit caused by school classes that start as early as 6:20 A.M. In online forums on the topic, parents note that at many schools a single section of a specialty class such as advanced placement is only offered at an early hour. They argue that schools need to start later. In Minnesota, one community embraced the later start in 1996. In the town of Edina, high-school classes no longer start at 7:25 A.M. but instead begin at 8:30 A.M. If a teen’s biological clock kicks in for sleep around 11:00 P.M., a teen who lives in Edina can get almost nine hours of sleep before a rush to the bus. Has the change made any difference in Edina? A year after the change, teachers reported much more positive and interactive first-period classes. They also noted that their sixth-period classes were no longer outperforming the first-period ones. A few more school districts have altered their start times, but there still is no national trend toward later classes. Until school leaders commit to the changes the studies recommend, though, there are positive steps teens may take to improve the amount of sleep they get. First, set a bedtime and stick with it. Next, avoid caffeine, which inhibits restful sleep as many as 12 hours after consumption. Get fresh air and exercise daily. And finally, pay attention to your body. Sleep when you need sleep. Stop over programming yourself. You have a lifetime ahead that depends on the good sleep you can give yourself tonight. Sleep on it. parents scientists teenagers school authorities

Answer:

Teenagers.

Explanation:

This passage is most likely intended for teenagers. We know this because the last paragraph which addresses the audience talks to teenagers directly. It presents to them some strategies that are likely to be useful in improving their sleep habits. The passage claims that some of these methods are setting a bedtime and sticking to it, avoiding caffeine, getting fresh air and exercise and paying attention to their bodies.

Read the excerpt from “American Indian Civil Rights.” Over the years, American Indian activists have valiantly fought for reform and for the government to honor certain treaty obligations. Sarah Winnemucca, a member of the Northern Paiutes tribe, campaigned for better living conditions for her tribe in the late 1800s. She lectured around the country in an effort to increase support for her cause. Physician and lecturer Charles Eastman, who was part of the Sioux tribe, also strove to improve the circumstances of American Indians in the early 1900s through public speaking and serving in organizations such as the Society of American Indians. What is the best reason to conclude that the author wants the reader to admire American Indians? The author uses words, such as “valiantly,” that have strong emotional connotations of courage and respect. The author repeats the word “tribe,” which places American Indian communities in a positive light. The author uses the metaphor “physician and lecturer,” which emphasizes a feeling of authority. The author makes an allusion to “the early 1900s,” which creates a sense of the significance of American Indians.

The author uses words, such as “valiantly,” that have strong emotional connotations of courage and respect.

The author also uses words use as “campaigned” and “strove to improve” which also have strong connotations of courage and respect. In looking at the other options, they can be eliminated as well. The repetition of the word “tribe” does not have a positive or negative connotation in this passage. There is no metaphor with “physician and lecturer” so this is just wrong. The reference to “the early 1900s” only demonstrates the amount of time these people have been working to improve conditions.

Why might it be fair to say that neither side won the battles of the Somme or Verdun?

[ad_1]

Answer:

The Battle of Gettysburg was fought between July 1 and 3, 1863, around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was the battle with more casualties in the United States, which is considered the turning point of the Civil War along with the Vicksburg site; and that, in addition, marked the beginning of the Union offensive, it was a great victory for the Federal Army and a disastrous event for the Confederation.

In the third day of the battle, General Lee was looking for a weak spot in General Meade’s extensive defensive line, located on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  His intention was to defeat the federal forces, which would have granted the Confederate Army a clear path to Washington.

Lee thought he saw a weak spot in Cemetery Ridge, a depression in the field, where two roads met and there led the charge of much of his infantry to break the defenses and concentrate the penetration of the southern army there. However, Meade, in the council of war that remained the previous night, predicted the movement of his adversary and took the measures of the case, and the Confederate troops failed to weaken the defenses of federal troops.

This unfortunate charge went down in history as The Pickett Charge.
