Any suggestion on how to make this essay better? Also I don't know where I should put paragraph breaks: I am a botanist or a plant scientist. I study botany, or in other words, the science of plants. As a botanist, it’s my job to study plants. I study everything I can about plants, no matter what they look like. I study plant anatomy, like genetics, structure and chemical makeup; plant physiology, like the effects of temperature, light, and humidity; plant processes, such as reproduction, respiration and photosynthesis; and plant economics, including the cultivation of plants for food, fibers, and pharmaceuticals. My average salary for my career is $64,992 and the largest salary I could earn is $90,490. As a botanist, I travel on some days, do plant experiments in greenhouses, but I’m usually stuck in a lab looking through a microscope at plant cells. There are more than three hundred thousand species of plants that we know of, meaning there is always more that we don’t know of about these plants to be discovered. There are different types of botanists, like agronomists that specialize in the study of crops and grasses, marine botanists that study plant life in the ocean, and plant taxonomists that identify and classify plants. Many botanists, like myself, teach in colleges and universities. Although there many different types of botanists we all study some sort of plant. Botanists use different types of equipment like microscopes to do their work. Botanists may work alone or in a team. Most entry-level botanists need a bachelor's or master's degree in botany, plant science, biology or something similar. If you want a more advanced position, you will need a doctoral degree. I hope this educated you on botanists and maybe even convince you a little to become a botanist like I did.

Read the passage from "Lather and Nothing Else." And so, which will it be? Murderer or hero? My fate hangs on the edge of this razor blade. I can turn my wrist slightly, put a bit more pressure on the blade, let it sink in. The skin will yield like silk, like rubber, like the strop. There is nothing more tender than a man’s skin, and the blood is always there, ready to burst forth. A razor like this cannot fail. It is the best one I have. How does the figurative language in the underlined sentence build a tense mood? A)It shows how strong the captain is and how fearful the barber must be. B) It persuades readers to see the captain’s political point of view. C)It creates a visual image and shows how easily the barber could hurt the captain. D)It describes details of an old-fashioned barbershop and creates sympathy for the barber.

Answer:

C)It creates a visual image and shows how easily the barber could hurt the captain.  

Explanation:

"Lather and Nothing Else" is a short story about a man who participates in a political party that will shave in a barber shop where the barber disagrees deeply with the ideas of the man's polite party. During the story the man begins to speak as he and his party companions treat the revolutionaries in a violent way, but the barber is one of these revolutionaries and when he hears the speech of the man, he enters into a moral dilemma where he thinks about whether to kill the man or not.

In the excerpt above, the phrase "My destiny is on the edge of this razor blade" creates a figure of speech that leads the reader to see how easy it would be for the barber to kill the man in front of him.

I NEED AN ANSWER ASAPI Have A Dream Martin Luther King, Jr. 1 I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. 2 Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. 3 But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. 4 In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 5It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.Which MOST ACCURATELY reflects a traditional or contemporary theme of this speech? A) environmental stewardship in the 1960s B) the new energy and urgency of the 1960s C) greed and its negative impact on the 1960s D) the old corruption and new tolerance of the 1960s

Answer:

B)  the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960s  

Explanation:

       

These are also some different options to the same question

A)  environmental stewardship in the 1960s

B)  the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960s  

C)  greed and its negative impact on the 1960s  

D)  the scientific advances creating changes in the 1960s

And its B cuz=

What MOST ACCURATELY reflects a traditional or contemporary theme of this speech is the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960's. In the opening lines of this section, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. refers to the large crowd as the 'greatest demonstration of freedom in the history of our nation.' He uses the phrase 'the fierce urgency of now, ' and then the word 'now' four more times in the last section. These combine to send the message (theme) that there is a new energy and urgency of the 1960's. The urgency revolves around equality and racial justice.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/02/2020 - 05:16 AM

Is Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet mostly a love story or mostly a tragedy? (Audience: convince those who think it’s mostly a tragedy that it’s mostly a love story or those who think it’s mostly a love story that it’s a tragedy. You will need to define the terms love story and tragedy, of course.) ~I need examples from the book (Act, scene, and line numbers) Here is an example: (I.ii.23-25). ~I am going to have to make this into 5 paragraphs so please provide as many details as you can. ~I will report any answers that are copied from another cite (I check) and/or spam ~All quotes need to be from the original version of the play.

For one thing, while Romeo does seem fickle at first, Rosaline has a purpose. She's meant to show us how Romeo changes over the course of the play. In the beginning, he was basically in the throes of puppy love--going on about her looks, her smile, blah, blah, blah. There were no hurdles beyond her own disinterest, no real love. It was shallow, and meant to be seen as such. Once Juliet comes into the picture, though, Romeo starts to grow up. He starts thinking about more than looks, starts weighing consequences, and by the end, he's willing to choose death over a life without Juliet (which is still stupid to me, but he wouldn't have even considered that for Rosaline). Rosaline was never more than a foil. 

And though their relationship came on quickly, I think that was mostly due to the time constraints. Shakespeare had to have them meet, fall in love, and off themselves within a very short period. There wasn't time for frequent meetings or any of that. It had to happen quickly...and though I'm the last person to believe in love at first sight, they (and the people who would watch the play being performed) often did. Courtly love, romantic love...that was the ideal for the time period, even if it wasn't ever the reality. Of course Shakespeare included it--he had to appease the higher classes. 

Besides, marriage wasn't something that took a lot of thought on their part. They were financially and socially matched, and it wasn't as though they were wondering whether or not they could handle living together. That's something people in our time, not theirs, think about. They were probably just glad to have found someone on their own as opposed to an arranged marriage with a stranger. It was enough for them. 

Romeo wasn't supposed to be a stalker. He was supposed to be a romantic...though I do agree with you. He annoys me. A lot. 

There WAS love, though. Selfish love at times. Immature love, but still love. 

This was actually one of Shakespeare's more brilliant plays. I may pretty much hate it, but I've studied this one in depth. The things he does with the language is just brilliant, even if it does take a LOT of study to appreciate it. He put a lot into that one.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/02/2020 - 04:54 AM

I want people to know that she was a great teacher who loved her family and her country. She had the courage to speak out and do something about the injustice. She worked hard to pass redress. When a group of people feel they have been treated unfairly by the government, the US Constitution guarantees you the right to redress the government. The Japanese Americans did that and because the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 was passed by Congress, our constitution is strong again. It was weakened by Executive Order 9066 when President Roosevelt ordered 120,000 innocent Japanese Americans into internment camps. Mary Tsukamoto always took the initiative to follow her beliefs. She was a respected author (she wrote the book, We the People, a Story of Internment in America), a political activist and someone who worked for world peace. She was selected by the California State Senate as a Notable Californian. What is the general topic that the paragraph concerns? inspirational women protesting injustice Japanese internment Chinese revolution

Answer:

Inspirational women

Explanation:

The paragraph talks about Mary Tsukamoto and her life achievements. In my opinion, the most important achievement of her was her concerns protesting injustice and Japanese internment. Though that is just an example of how hard she worked and how she became respected and admired by many.

Also, I took the quiz on Edge and this was the correct answer. Hope this helps someone, have a great day!
