Quote from the following passage. Use at least three sets of ellipses and one set of brackets with an addition. There are nowadays professors of philosophy, but not philosophers. Yet it is admirable to profess because it was once admirable to live. To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust. It is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically. The success of great scholars and thinkers is commonly a courtier-like success, not kingly, not manly. They make shift to live merely by conformity, practically as their fathers did, and are in no sense the progenitors of a noble race of men. —Thoreau, from Walden

Answer:

There are nowadays professors of philosophy, but not philosophers. Yet it is admirable to profess because it was once admirable to live. To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts ... but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust. It is to solve some of the problems of life.... [In contrast the] success of great scholars and thinkers is commonly a courtier-like success, not kingly, not manly. They make shift to live merely by conformity ... and are in no sense the progenitors of a noble race of men.

If you believe in freedom, you will agree that Deborah Sampson was a war heroine. Deborah proved that women can be excellent soldiers. At a time when women were not allowed to join the army, she hid her identity and did just that. She spent seventeen months posing as a man to serve her country. Deborah was born in Massachusetts in 1760. When she was a child, her family was poor and her mother was ill. At the age of eight, Deborah became a servant. She spent ten years working in a nearby home. She also worked in the fields. During her time as a servant, Deborah became a great person. She learned to hunt, ride a horse, and perform carpentry tasks. She also attended school. By the end of her service, she had received enough education to become a teacher. She taught students at a public school until 1782. At twenty-one, Deborah decided to do something noble. She wanted to serve her country. America was in the middle of the Revolutionary War. The people wanted to win their freedom from England. Women weren’t allowed to join the army, so Deborah developed a clever idea. She would pretend to be a man, so she could become a soldier! On May 20, 1782, Deborah performed a brave and honorable act. She dressed as a man and joined the army, signing up as Robert Shurtleff. The other men in the army had no idea that Robert Shurtleff had such a big secret. At five feet, seven inches, Deborah was a tall woman. No one questioned her size. The other men did notice that she never grew a beard. They often teased her about never needing to shave, but they thought it was because Robert was young. During one battle, Deborah was shot in the leg, but she refused to see a doctor. She worried that the doctor would learn her secret and tell the army leaders. Instead, she chose to treat her own wounds. The leg never healed properly, but Deborah’s secret was safe. What a strong and determined solider she was! Unfortunately, in the fall of 1783, she developed a fever and went to see a doctor. During her treatment, the doctor discovered the truth. The Continental Army released Deborah with honors. Her days as a soldier were over, and she no longer had to live a lie. She later married and had three children. She also gave lectures about her time in the army as Robert Shurtleff. The story of Deborah's life should inspire girls and women everywhere. Paul Revere, another war hero, spoke well of Deborah. He once wrote that she was "a woman with handsome talents, good morals, a dutiful wife, and an affectionate parent." Read the passage on the left to answer the following questions: Which statement from the passage BEST supports the author's conclusion that Deborah was a war heroine? A) Deborah proved that women can be excellent soldiers. B) She spent seventeen months posing as a man to serve her country. C) She also gave lectures about her time in the army as Robert Shurtleff. D) The other men in the army had no idea that Robert Shurtleff had such a big secret.

Which of the following statements most accurately describes Marlow's view of White women? A.) They represent darkness B.) They're equal to men C.) They live in their own world, far removed from the reality of men D.) They love in the world of economic reality E.) They're better than men

Answer:

C.) They live in their own world, far removed from the reality of men

Explanation:

In Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", there are just two women (Marlow's aunt and Kurtz' intended) who are white who are of significance with the main protagonist of the story, Charlie Marlow. Both represent the patriarchal authority of the society that they are living in, trophies for their men. To Marlow, women "live in a world of their own, and there has never been anything like it, and never can be. It's too beautiful altogether, and if they were to set it up it would go to pieces before the first sunset." (Chapter 1). This rightly sums up his image of women.

Who is the speaker if this poem? A. a poet b. a young a child c. an outside narrator d. a child of the future i dont understand since there are some options im choosing between please help!! Come, let us plant the apple-tree. Cleave the tough greensward with the spade; Wide let its hollow bed be made; There gently lay the roots, and there Sift the dark mould with kindly care, And press it o’er them tenderly, As, round the sleeping infant’s feet, We softly fold the cradle sheet; So plant we the apple-tree. What plant we in this apple-tree? Buds, which the breath of summer days Shall lengthen into leafy sprays; Boughs where the thrush, with crimson breast, Shall haunt and sing and hide her nest; We plant, upon the sunny lea, A shadow for the noontide hour, A shelter from the summer shower, When we plant the apple-tree. What plant we in this apple-tree? Sweets for a hundred flowery springs To load the May-wind’s restless wings, When, from the orchard row, he pours Its fragrance through our open doors; A world of blossoms for the bee, Flowers for the sick girl’s silent room, For the glad infant sprigs of bloom, We plant with the apple-tree. What plant we in this apple-tree! Fruits that shall swell in sunny June, And redden in the August noon, And drop, when gentle airs come by, That fan the blue September sky, While children come, with cries of glee, And seek them where the fragrant grass Betrays their bed to those who pass, At the foot of the apple-tree. And when, above this apple-tree, The winter stars are quivering bright, And winds go howling through the night, Girls, whose young eyes o’erflow with mirth, Shall peel its fruit by cottage-hearth, And guests in prouder homes shall see, Heaped with the grape of Cintra’s vine And golden orange of the line, The fruit of the apple-tree. The fruitage of this apple-tree Winds and our flag of stripe and star Shall bear to coasts that lie afar, Where men shall wonder at the view, And ask in what fair groves they grew; And sojourners beyond the sea Shall think of childhood’s careless day And long, long hours of summer play, In the shade of the apple-tree. Each year shall give this apple-tree A broader flush of roseate bloom, A deeper maze of verdurous gloom, And loosen, when the frost-clouds lower, The crisp brown leaves in thicker shower; The years shall come and pass, but we Shall hear no longer, where we lie, The summer’s songs, the autumn’s sigh, In the boughs of the apple-tree. And time shall waste this apple-tree. Oh, when its aged branches throw Thin shadows on the ground below, Shall fraud and force and iron will Oppress the weak and helpless still? What shall the tasks of mercy be, Amid the toils, the strifes, the tears Of those who live when length of years Is wasting this little apple-tree? “Who planted this old apple-tree?” The children of that distant day Thus to some aged man shall say; And, gazing on its mossy stem, The gray-haired man shall answer them: “A poet of the land was he, Born in the rude but good old times; ‘T is said he made some quaint old rhymes On planting the apple-tree.”

Imagine that you're a fly. You're just zipping around the sky, looking for a place to rest, when you see nice pink leaf. That looks like a nice place to land. You think to yourself in your fly head. As you rest your feet on the leaf, you notice something strange. This leaf is hairy. You begin to make your move, but you trigger the plant's reflex. Snap! In one-tenth of a second, you are caught in the Venus flytrap. You will be digested in five to twelve days. Welcome to the world of carnivorous plants! There are over a quarter of a millions plant species. Only 600 or so are carnivorous. We call them this because they attract, trap, and eat bugs. Like other plants, they get energy from the sun. But unlike other plants, they get their nutrients from their prey. Carnivorous plants live in bogs and places where the soil lacks nutrients. Most plants get nutrients from the soil. Carnivorous plants have turned to other sources. The snap of the Venus flytrap is not the only way that plants eat bugs. Pitcher plants trick their prey into landing on them. They offer nectar bribes to the foolish insects that would take them. True to their name, pitcher plants have deep chambers. Their landing surface is slippery. They have inward pointing hairs, making it hard to escape. The fly lands on the pitcher plant to eat, but slips into a pit filled with digestive fluids and is eaten. Then there're sundews. We call them sundews because they sparkle in the sun as if covered in morning dew. Of course, that sparkle is from something much more treacherous. It is a sweet goo called mucilage that bugs can't resist. Sundews create mucilage to attract bugs. As they fly in to eat, bugs become trapped in the very object of their desire. They soon exhaust themselves by trying to escape the mucilage. Or the sundew's tentacles, which respond to prey by curling around them, smother them. Bugs usually die in about 15 minutes. Then the plant dissolves its prey in enzymes and absorbs the nutrients. Image Have you ever walked into trouble and found that you couldn't get out? So has every insect that has ever wandered into a corkscrew plant. Bugs love to investigate plants for nectar and food. Corkscrew plants have inviting stems. Curved hairs line the inside of these stems. These hairs allow insects to go up the stems, but not back. Going forward leads a chamber filled with digestive fluid, the plant's stomach. Bugs who wander into the corkscrew plant find that they are unable to escape. They must march to their own demise. And then there are the bladderworts. They're about as nice as they sound. They live in water and float near the surface. Their traps are like small bladders hidden beneath the water. Only their flowers are visible from the surface. When bugs swim into the trigger hairs, the plant reacts. A trapdoor in the bladder opens up. The bladder sucks up the prey and the water surrounding it. A tenth of a second later, the bladder shuts again. The plant has trapped the prey. It releases digestive fluids. The prey will be digested within hours. Carnivorous plants might sound tough, but they are difficult to keep at home. They are built to survive in places that other plants cannot. This specialization comes at a cost. They have a hard time adapting to other environments. Their strengths become weaknesses in rich soil. They depend on the harsh yet delicate environments in which they thrive. They are not so hardy after all. Still, there's something to be said about the power of life when one finds a plant that can survive in barren soil. Question:Compare and contrast two types of plants described in this passage. How are they similar? How are they different? Refer to the text in your answer and explain your arguments completely. Eplain in two paragraph

Just write about the differences and similarities about only two of the plants mentioned in the text. There are 5 plants mentioned (venus flytrap, pitcher plant, sundew, corkscrew plant, and bladderworts.)

QUESTION POSTED AT 22/02/2020 - 01:09 PM

I had loved her madly! Why does one love? Why does one love? How queer it is to see only one being in the world, to have only one thought in one's mind, only one desire in the heart, and only one name on the lips—name which comes up continually, rising, like the water in a spring, from the depths of the soul to the lips, a name which one repeats over and over again, which one whispers ceaselessly, everywhere, like a prayer. I am going to tell you our story, for love only has one, which is always the same. I met her and loved her; that is all. And for a whole year I have lived on her tenderness, on her caresses, in her arms, in her dresses, on her words, so completely wrapped up, bound, and absorbed in everything which came from her, that I no longer cared whether it was day or night, or whether I was dead or alive, on this old earth of ours. And then she died. How? I do not know; I no longer know anything. But one evening she came home wet, for it was raining heavily, and the next day she coughed, and she coughed for about a week, and took to her bed. What happened I do not remember now, but doctors came, wrote, and went away. Medicines were brought, and some women made her drink them. Her hands were hot, her forehead was burning, and her eyes bright and sad. When I spoke to her, she answered me, but I do not remember what we said. I have forgotten everything, everything, everything! She died, and I very well remember her slight, feeble sigh. The nurse said: "Ah!" and I understood, I understood! I knew nothing more, nothing. I saw a priest, who said: "Your mistress?"—and it seemed to me as if he were insulting her. As she was dead, nobody had the right to say that any longer, and I turned him out. Another came who was very kind and tender, and I shed tears when he spoke to me about her. They consulted me about the funeral, but I do not remember anything that they said, though I recollected the coffin, and the sound of the hammer when they nailed her down in it. Oh! God, God! She was buried! Buried! She! In that hole! Some people came—female friends. I made my escape and ran away. I ran, and then walked through the streets, went home, and the next day started on a journey. The title "Was It a Dream?" could be interpreted in different ways. Explain at least two ways that the title could be interpreted. Which interpretation do you think fits the story best? In one to two paragraphs, explain your answer.

Answer: something bad or something amazing

Explanation: One way it could be interpreted is as something bad that happened. The person went through something rough or traumatic . For example, if someone the person loved died they would question if it was real because it is too rough to accept. Another interpretation could be as something amazing happened to the character. If the character got news that they had been promoted to their dream job or work, they would be happy and be in disbelief, they would be so happy they couldnt believe it was real.

What is the logical fallacy of the following statement... Couples should live together before marriage

The logical fallacy can be deepened depending on your morals, but the logical fallacy is the world "should". This implies that living together before marriage is the only way that a marriage should work out, or that it is the "right" way. Both of those assumptions are false, because traditionally (typically the "right" way), couples would not live together before marriage, and many couples had their marriage work out perfectly without this.

Pogo Sticks Your great-grandmother may have used a pogo stick as a young girl, because these toys have been around for a long time. They were invented by George B. Hans burg in Germany in 1919, and originally were made of wood. When an American company ordered the first large shipment of the new toy in 1919, however, the wooden pogo sticks warped during the long, humid trip across the ocean, which made them unsellable. The inventor, Mr. Hans burg, then developed a steel version with an enclosed spring, which he began producing himself at a factory in Elmhurst, New York. Which sentence would be the best concluding statement for this paragraph? A) The pogo stick quickly became wildly popular in the United States. B) That factory is still the leading producer of steel pogo sticks in the world. C) The pogo stick has never stopped being made and sales have remained relatively steady. D) As recently as 2001, an American company came out with an air-powered pogo stick made from aircraft- grade aluminum. 13) If a writer wanted to put emphasis on the person doing an action, which of these statements would be the best choice? A) active voice B) passive voice C) subjunctive mood D) interrogative mood 14) You are assigned to write an essay which must maintain the indicative mood throughout. Which of the choices below would need to be removed or revised? A) Have you ever wished for anything so badly that it hurt not to have it? B) I often walk down the street near my house, deep in thought. Eliminate C) One day, I saw that my friend had gotten a 10-speed bike for Christmas. D) I knew intense jealousy that very moment.

Answer: C

Explanation:

"These toys have been around for a long time" is the evidence that they have never stopped being made and sales have remained relatively steady.

Answer 13: A.  active voice

Explanation:

 If  a writer wanted to put emphasis on the person doing the action, he or she needs to choose the active voice, the passive voice sometimes doesn't require the doer of the action.

Answer 14: A. Have you ever wished for anything so badly that it hurt not to have it?

Explanation: The sentence above is a question and not a fact being expressed, so it needs to be removed/revised.
