Rewrite the following paragraph using the half-and-half form. What are some of the differences between intelligence and wisdom? Intelligence is the ability to absorb information quickly and accurately. Wisdom will not necessarily absorb information quickly. The intelligent person has a store of information readily available “in her own head,” but it may just stay stored there. The wise person examines and uses information, looking for real truths. The intelligent person may share information, but a reason for sharing may often be to draw attention and praise to oneself. A wise person will share her conclusions humbly, concerned for the good of others, not just herself.

How would you characterize the personality of the narrator, based on what you have read in the general prologue??

The character of Chaucer serves as our guide to the action. Sometimes Chaucer narrates like he's really there in the tavern, just meeting these pilgrims for the first time, and we feel like we're right there with him. At other times, though, Chaucer is a narrator who seems to know way more than he should. For example, he tells us that, when the Shipman wins a fight, he murders the loser by throwing him overboard, or that the Reeve is stealing from his master. Now is that really something these people would tell Chaucer on first meeting him? And how does Chaucer know so many details of the pilgrims' day-to-day lives? At these moments, Chaucer acts much more like an omniscient, or all-knowing, narrator, than one who's truly in the heat of the action. The reason for this choice could be that verisimilitude, or making things seem like real life, was not as important to a medieval author as it is to authors today. Instead, the narrator might choose to tell whatever he wants to tell to serve the purposes of characterization.

Read the excerpt from E.O. Wilson’s “The Environmental Ethic.” Why should we care? What difference does it make if some species are extinguished, if even half of all the species on earth disappear? Let me count the ways. New sources of scientific information will be lost. Vast potential biological wealth will be destroyed. Still undeveloped medicines, crops, pharmaceuticals, timber, fibers, pulp, soil-restoring vegetation, petroleum substitutes, and other products and amenities will never come to light. It is fashionable in some quarters to wave aside the small and obscure, the bugs and weeds, forgetting that an obscure moth from Latin America saved Australia’s pastureland from overgrowth by cactus, that the rosy periwinkle provided the cure for Hodgkin’s disease and childhood lymphocytic leukemia, that the bark of the Pacific yew offers hope for victims of ovarian and breast cancer, that a chemical from the saliva of leeches dissolves blood clots during surgery, and so on down a roster already grown long and illustrious despite the limited research addressed to it. Which techniques does Wilson use in this excerpt to convey important information to his readers? Wilson uses humorous anecdotes that make the information more interesting. Wilson uses metaphors that appeal to a wide range of the reader’s senses. Wilson relates the significance of the information directly to the reader’s life. Wilson refers to empirical statistics to relate the importance of his message.

In the excerpt provided in the question from "The Environmental Ethic" by E.O Wilson, the author is assessing the vast problems the human specie will face if more species become extinct.

The technique that Wilson uses in the excerpt provided to convey important information to his readers is by using metaphors that appeal to a wide range of the reader's senses. An example of this would be when he uses the term "potential biological wealth will be destroyed" referring to the negative impact on biology that the extinction of a specie will have. Or "Still undeveloped medicines, crops,..., will never come to light" to asses how multiple positive elements on the Earth will not be produced as a consequence of extinction. By using these metaphors, Wilson gets to explain a rather difficult and technical problem to a bigger audience, by appealing to their senses and common sense.

Read the excerpt from chapter 11 of The Awakening. “Edna, dear, are you not coming in soon?” he asked again, this time fondly, with a note of entreaty. “No, I am going to stay out here.” “This is more than folly,” he blurted out. “I can’t permit you to stay out there all night. You must come in the house instantly.” Which best explains how the excerpt is an example of realism? The conversation is a symbolic criticism of marriage. The conversation imitates conversations in real life. The conversation is not one that could occur in reality. The conversation has an underlying tone of anger.

Answer: B) The conversation imitates conversations in real life.

Explanation: In literature, realism is a movement that started in France in the nineteenth century, and the authors of the movement tried to represent the everyday-situations as they were (like relationships, or familie issues), without making them more beautiful or using fantastic elements. In this case, the excerpt is an example of realism because it imitates a real conversation between a married couple.

That song is not poetry, it is using another form of affection to show how hard love can truly be. I know it must sound stupid but some words don't go right like words do in a poem. It shows that true love isn't based on just a poem but how another person see you in their eyes

Which excerpt from Nadine Gordimer’s “Once Upon a Time” best supports the idea that the narrator of the story does not believe that the family is living happily? “It was not possible to insure the house, the swimming pool, or the car against riot damage.” “He was masked; it could not be said if he was black or white, and therefore proved the property owner was no racist.” “And the wise old witch, the husband’s mother, paid for the extra bricks as her Christmas present to her son and his wife.” “So from every window and door in the house where they were living happily ever after they now saw the trees and sky through bars.”

“So from every window and door in the house where they were living happily ever after they now saw the trees and sky through bars.”


This statement best supports the idea that the narrator of the story does not believe that the family is living happily because of the end phrase which says "...they now saw the trees and sky through bars..." which shows that the people inside are imprisoned. Being imprisoned typically goes with a lot of unhappiness because one doesn't have freedom, so you can infer that even though they're described as living "happily ever after" they are actually NOT happy.

"I call not upon a few but upon all—not on this state or that state, but on every state—up and help us. . . . Let it be told to the future world that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and repulse it." Paine's purpose in issuing this plea is to draw attention to the differences that exist among colonists from different states. unite the colonists in support of continuing the fight for independence. encourage the colonists to wait for better times in the spring. warn the colonists of the danger of a British attack during the winter months.

This particular excerpt, derives from one of the two most famous political and rebellious pamphlets written by English-American journalist, activist and revolutionary Thomas Paine, in 1776. A huge supporter of the American Revolution and the need to break off from British control, Paine used his two pamphlets: Common Sense and The American Crisis, as a means to encourage Americans from the 13 colonies to end their ties with the British Crown. Calling upon human rights and the ideals proposed in the Enlightment era, Paine became almost primordial to the American Revolution and is now considered one of the Founding Fathers. Among the many things pushed forth by Paine in his pamphlets, one of the most common, was his insistence to the American people of the need to forgo their differences as individual states, and to unite under one banner and one goal. This is why the correct answer here is: Paine issues this plea as a way to: Unite the colonists in support of continuing the fight for independence.

Cloning, if allowed for human reproduction, could affect society's perception of what it means to be a human being. Uncertainties over a cloned individual's personal uniqueness or freedom to create one's own identity may haunt him or her. Relatives or friends could have specific expectations regarding the cloned individual's talents and abilities. Others might ill treat or discriminate against a cloned individual. Some worry that cloning would lead to diminished respect for human life in general, and for cloned individuals in particular, since the cloned person might simply be replaced with another clone. Others point out, however, that this altered perception does not occur today with identical twins, who are naturally produced clones. Cloning human embryos also raises difficult questions about the rights of parents to control their own embryos and other issues concerning reproductive rights and privacy. Some observers believe that it would be ethical to clone human embryos to help infertile couples conceive. Lastly, the possibility of human cloning is offensive to the religious and other deeply held beliefs of many people. Source: "CRS Report for Congres." Foreign Press Centers.
