Read this excerpt from “Ain’t I a Woman?” by Sojourner Truth. In which sentences does she make an emotional appeal to the audience by talking about her personal hardships? Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about? That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman? Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

IN the 2ND paragraph which mostly contains the personal hardships the speaker has in her life as a Negro woman. Specifically, the sentence's where in she talks about no one helping her into carriages, ploughed and gathered in the farm, eat and work as much as a man, and being sold off to slavery best describe the emotional it shows that she wanted to convey

QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 04:22 AM

Fellow citizens, pardon me, and allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I or those I represent to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits, and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us? Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions. Then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation's sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude, that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation's jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs? What effect is achieved by using a series of questions in this speech? A.It conveys a sense of wonderment about the tenets of the Declaration of Independence. B.It gets the audience to start thinking about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves. C.It makes the audience begin to resent the policies and practices of the US government. D.It creates a parallel structure intended to urge the audience to protest against the Declaration of Independence

B. 

It gets the audience to start thinking about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves,

Read each question carefully and brainstorm ideas before you begin. Use complete sentences and support your answers with evidence from the text. 1. How are Yun Ok's character traits—demonstrated in her quest to obtain the tiger's whisker—going to help her accomplish her goal of reconnecting with her husband? 2. Is Yun Ok afraid at any point in the story? Why or why not? 3. At the end of the story, do you consider Yun Ok successful? Why or why not? Cite specific details from the story to support your conclusion. DONT ANSWER I DON'T KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yun Ok eventually goes far enough in the cave and sees the tigers eyes one night. She sets down the meat as usual and leaves. She keeps getting closer and closer. Then one night the tiger comes to her and takes the meat. The tiger becomes like a house pet to Yun Ok and this continues for a couple more months.
Yun Ok one night tells the tiger she is going to clip one of the whiskers. She gets the whisker and takes it to Sage. Sage then throws the whisker in the fire. He then asks Yun Ok how she got the whisker. She tells him and he asks what is more of a savage beast, the tiger or man?
Yun Ok says that the tiger is harder to train. Sage then says that the potion is in your heart with love, kindness, patience, and effort. Yun Ok was still mad at first because she had "wasted" all of that time to learn a simple lesson. 
Yun Ok's husband returned home from the war and is not the same. He is very quite and is not happy or affectionate anymore, just not the same.
Yun Ok went to the hermit, sage, for advice or a potion she could get to make her husband better. Sage said to get a tigers whisker and then he will make her a potion to help with her husband.

Please help!!!!!!! The Cherry Orchard is A Comedy in Four Acts. Anton Chekhov famously disagreed with the plays first director, Konstantin Stanislavsky, about whether the play was a comedy or a tragedy. Chose one ( comedy or tragedy ) and defend your position with evidence from the text.

Anton Chekhov conceived of this play, which turned out to be his last, as a comedy,designating it “A Comedy in Four Acts” and even emphasizing to the Moscow Art Theatre that the last act should be “merry and frivolous.”  He suggested that some portions were even farcical.  Nevertheless, most interpretations and theatrical productions have emphasized its tragic aspects. It is understandable why the playwright’s intentions have been largely disregarded; the subject is a serious and depressing one including the family’s loss of their ancestral home and removal from it and other sad developments as well.  The destruction of the orchard also represents the destruction of illusions—sad, to be sure, but perhaps hopeful.

 

Thus, as the inevitable change in society with the dawning of the 20th Century comes, the play represents this time period and portrays an end of an aristocratic era with both tragic and comic elements.  The play is best characterized as a tragicomedy.

Not only do they make the presentation more entertaining, but they help the public understand more and better the arguments presented by the speaker. The same happens in the subject of reading or work that is delivered to students, these should always be accompanied by a support, or visual framework that helps or guides the student in reading.

How do stores try to lure shoppers during black Friday events

Stores make advertisements on tv and the radio detailing their most sought after products and best deals. Catalogs or web pages with details about all of their listings and coupons to redeem are often utilized as well.
One big tactic in ads is that of showing the price of items before the sale and after the sale. To create a sense of scarcity, stores often implore shoppers to get certain items in limited supply before they run out and have different levels of sale at different times over the course of the holiday.

I have trouble with analogies. Is there someone or a web site that can help me with this? And I'm new here...not sure what to do. I need more help.

An analogy, by definition, is a comparison between two things, typically on the basis of their structure and for the purpose of explanation or clarification.

There are some websites that can help with them, here is one that explains a basic analogy:
https://www.teachervision.com/vocabulary/reading-comprehension/6697.html

An example of an analogy is:
If TURTLE is to SLOW, then CHEETA is to _____

By background knowledge, we know that Turtles are Slow. So the animal is being compared to its speed. Cheetahs are known to be fast, so the word FAST fits in with the analogy. It's comparing the Cheeta to its speed, as well as being the opposite of the Turtle's speed.

Analogies are not always opposite, but common examples are opposite analogies. A non-opposite example would be:

Triangle is to THREE as Square is to FOUR

This is comparing the sides of the figures. Hopefully this helps.

Can you help write a rephrase of this paragraph? I'm writing a report and my friend hasn t finished her so can you rephrase what I wrote on mine to make them sound different but mean the same thing? Here is the paragraph: In The Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa woke up one morning transformed into a “vermin.” His family was disgusted and frightened at the sight of him and kept him locked in his bedroom most days, treating him with intentional carelessness, that eventually led to his death at the end of the book. It was never revealed why Gregor transformed and it never foreshadowed or alluded even in the slightest as the why he became a beetle (vermin). In The Transformation of Arachne into a Spider however, Arachne insults the great goddess Pallas (Athena) to an old woman, who was Pallas in disguise. She challenges Pallas to a weaving contest, where Pallas depicts where the Gods have overruled humans while Arachne depicts the Gods’ infidelities. At the end of the story, Pallas loses and transforms Arachne into a spider forever. If the two stories are compared, they show likeness in how Gregor transformed and how Arachne transformed. Both Gregor and Arachne were transformed into some type of insect and stayed that way until death came upon them.
