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.

How do parables and fables differ?

A parable is a brief, succinct story, in prose or verse, that illustrates a moral or religious lesson. It differs from a fable in that fables use animals, plants, inanimate objects, and forces of nature as characters, while parables generally feature human characters. It is a type of analogy.

99 point Question and Brainliest!!! I really need help with this... What do you believe Nick's American Dream is, based on the text in the book "The Great Gatsby"? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ **Please explain in full sentences (try to make it at least 8 sentences long)** Thanks!!

From my previous ans to ur Q last week:

Daisy is the ultimate status symbol; at least for Gatsby she is. In a way, she IS the American Dream. When Daisy and Gatsby reunite and begin an affair, it seems like Gatsby could in fact achieve his goal.

But 
Daisy refuses to leave Tom and Gatsby is killed by George. With the “strivers” all dead, the old money crowd is safe again. Daisy was born with money and does not need to strive for great wealth or other far-off things from the American Dream.

Nick describes Daisy as “High in a white palace the king’s daughter, the golden girl,” literally considering Daisy as a prize. He also pessimistically says, “you can’t repeat the past”, implying there is but a small window for certain dreams.  The dreams cannot be achieved once the window is closed.

Nick is not happy with his family’s respectable fortune and his girlfriend out west. At the end, Nick sadly meditates on the lost promise of the American Dream


The part on Nick was a little thin - as Nick explains in the book, the American dream was originally about discovery, individualism, and the pursuit of happiness. It has been corrupted by easy money and relaxed social values. Nick realized after Gatsby's death: the dream was also about learning from the past.

"On Nick’s last night in the East, he walks over to Gatsby’s mansion. Nick looks out along the beach and wonders what this land was like long ago-when it was a new and unspoiled world. Nick sees the green light. The green light represents the dream. The pure dream that Gatsby had. The purity of the American Dream is something that is in our past. The past of our nation, and in the innocence of our youth.

Nick realizes that what Gatsby had was the sense of unlimited promise. He possessed The American Dream. An older and wiser Nick returns to the Midwest."

Read the text excerpt to answer the question that follows: "I say, now is the time to press this right. It may be asked, "Why do you want it? Some men have got along very well without it. Women have not this right." Shall we justify one wrong by another? This is a sufficient answer. Shall we at this moment justify the deprivation of the Negro of the right to vote, because someone else is deprived of that privilege?" Which amendment satisfied the goal described in this statement? A. Fifteenth Amendment B. Nineteenth Amendment (THIS ANSWER IS WRONG) C. Twenty-fourth Amendment D. Twenty-sixth Amendment

Answer: The right answer is the A) The Fifteenth Amendment.

Explanation: This is an excerpt from Frederick Douglass' speech “What the Black Man Wants,” which he gave in 1865, before the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society in Boston. In it, he requested that African Americans be granted the right to vote, or enfranchisement, claiming that the fact that women, too, were not allowed to vote was not a justification for such deprivation.

The Fifteenth Amendmnent to the U.S Constitution declares that "the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude." This is specifically what Frederick Douglass was defending in his speech - the other Amendments also protect the right to vote, but based on other premises.

Read the poems. Which statement best describes the differences between these poems? The haiku relies on rhyme for a musical effect, while the romantic poem uses sensory details. The haiku tells a story, while the romantic poem uses kigo to impart the motif of the poem. The haiku focuses on nature, while the romantic poem focuses on changes in the speaker’s life. The haiku captures a single moment, while the romantic poem weaves a tale using images.

The correct answer here is the last one I suppose the letter would be D. The haiku is a form of a traditional Japanese poetry which consists of 17 syllables and it is one of the most popular of poetic forms in Japan. The poems because of their short nature focus on a single image which usually bears some symbolic meaning or it serves as a conduit for transfer of the poet’s feelings. It also shows the beauty of nature in a single moment in contrast to romantics who show multiple images and construct a tale.

Decisions often have negative effects on reaching goals. (Remember the example of Nathan? He purchased a video game he wanted, but had to delay getting his snowboard.) You can probably think of many examples of how decisions can affect your goals. Think about one of your goals. In the text box below, write about how a decision could affect reaching this goal.

Answer:

Two of my main goals in life are to travel around the world and to get my degree as an English teacher at my city's university. However, I know I can't do both at the same time, and that I will have to decide which I'm going to pursue first. If I decide to go on a long journey around different countries, I know I'm going to delay getting my degree, and surely many things may change during my journey as regards the time, my age, the documents I would have to present to start college, etc. On the other side, if I decide to study first and then travel, I may not be as interested as I was before, because I know it's going to take me at least 5 years to get my degree. Besides, I would have to work first to save money and that will only prolong my journey.
