I think this is a succinct summary of the case and the result: http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Worcester+v.+The+State+of+Georgia

History
Why would new citizens need to know ANYTHING about U.S. history? What do you think was significant about the experience of the Dust Bowl? Why do you think it might be important for YOU to know about it, as a U.S. citizen? When you can answer one of those questions, you'll ...

Comprehension
I think that could be a valid answer, but I think what the article means, and what Jane Birch is saying is that BOTH the people one works with AND the people served are important. So I think yours is the best answer, since there is no option for both.

Comprehension
I agree with all your answers. Well done!

I think you have to read Paine's essay to find it.

grammAr
IF you are studying grammar, please learn to spell it. Again, what is YOUR answer? And PLEASE use the same name for all your questions. I won't answer any more until you have studied your text materials and can offer your best answer.

english
Two students (had asked).. had is past tense, has is present tense. If they did it an hour ago or last month, it's in the past BUT, which of the options do YOU think it is? We'll check your answer, not give it to you. Study your text materials.

english
What do you think? The word is the object of the preposition "to", so must be a noun or pronoun, not a verb.

english
I think you are guessing, but you guessed right on "could have gotten". Do as Writeacher suggests and study the sites she posted for you, and your text materials.

english
What do you think? When you have an answer(s), we'll be glad to check them. To find the difference between lie and lay, look them up: http://www.mirriam-Webster.com

English
Those are good examples, yes. Are there any others? And your assessment that euphemisms are used to hide truth is right. :)

no subject
Giving people the answers merely allows them to pass the quiz or get the grade. They have learned nothing at all that way. The purpose of school/education is to LEARN something, like how to do math, how the physical world works (science), how our world of people got to where ...

English
Like Writeacher, I have not read ETHAN FROME. I've read other of Wharton novels and short stories, but not that one, so I can't help. Sorry. I suspect that Ms. Sue has not read it, either, or she would have responded earlier. Sorry. Maybe we should "get up to ...

The Maryland what?

Social Studies---Please Help!
When you have read your text materials and have an answer, we'll be glad to check it for you.

Social Studies---Please Help!
Yes, French. Those are all French names, for one thing. French is still the dominant language in Quebec. Your text should explain these things, but you have to read it.

Social Studies---Please Help!
What are your choices? Somali, Russian, Chinese, Norse? What nation was exploring and is associated with those names?

SS
That is true! Good thinking. I think C, your answer, is the best one.

SS
Why can't it be A? Where do Jews, Muslims, and Christians trace their religions back to, and to whom? It's not C.

Social Studies
Embershy is right, as far as that goes. Actually, none of the above is really true. A few women were elected to public office, including a governor or two, so A is probably the best answer to be considered "correct".

ELA
How can we help you with this assignment?

verbal reasoning
What word do sailors sometimes use to get another sailor's attention?

ELA - English
When you can provide us with some answers, we'll be glad to check your work - if you post only the ones you are uncertain about. Use your text material to identify the correct answers.

social studies
On an atoll?? What does your text say?

english
Either would work. To plow them under is to plow them into the soil or under the soil. "Into" is more accurate, really, but people say they plow something under.

Social studies
No tutor here will give you the answers to your test. If you have not studied, it's your own fault. If other students help you cheat, you can all be banned from Jiskha.

American Government
No. I disagree with your answer to #7. Your answer for #8 is correct.

American Government
Yes, A.

World History
I agree.

social studies
Correct. :)

Grammar
I see nothing wrong with it, unless there was more than one nurse making notes in the medical record.

English
Both mean the same.

I agree with your answers.

English
#1

English
"opposing team" would be a better choice, but opponent and opposite really mean the same thing. "to solve the problems"? What problems? Whose problems? The phrase is too broad and means nothing. The problems of peace in the Middle East? The problems of the ...

Social studies
No. http://www.leroy.k12.mn.us/uploads/2/1/7/3/21738584/chap07_central_am.__caribbeans.pdf

English
In this context there is no difference between "television" and "the television". Making it specific with "the" might mean the set in the corner, not television as a medium of communication, but here, it's okay either way. One might say "...

English
Both are correct. Well done, Hayden. :)

English
One could also say, "how television hurts us." "hurting" is a gerund, a noun. A verb is needed.

English
All three need to say, "might BE hurting us". Otherwise, all are correct.

English
No, not usually. As I recall Jackson's story, the lottery doesn't have an official title as in "Powerball" or some other name, so it would not be capitalized as a proper noun. Is it capitalized in your imprint of the story? If so, then you should, too. If not...

history
I think you need to be more specific. What do tourists spend money on when they visit some place? They don't buy washing machines. What do they buy or use? http://journal.georgetown.edu/the-growing-importance-of-tourism-in-the-global-economy-and-international-affairs/ http...

Social Studies
If you still can't find what you need, you can "google" each of the agencies, such as "World War I War Labor Board" for yourself.

Social Studies
The first place to start to find information is your text materials. Here are additional articles on the subject that may be of help: http://www.bing.com/search?q=how+the+u.s.+government+managed+the+economy+during+world+war+i+and+the+economic+effects&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=...

History
See my answer below. We are not going to do your homework for you. We'll be glad to check your answer(s)

History
Here are several sites that should help you answer this question. If one doesn't give you the information you want or need, try another one until you find what you want. http://www.bing.com/search?q=grievances+against+the+king+and+parliament+expressed+by+american+colonists...

History
What does your text say? Did the Continental Congress have a representative in London to express grievances? Did the Declaration of Independence enumerate attempts to petition the King and Parliament? What other evidence does your text suggest or describe?

Us history
The question asks what YOU think, not what I think. One of us will be glad to critique your response.

English
What lines?

English
These sentences are perfectly acceptable. You could also say, "However, people have a right to make unhealthy choices." Either way, it means the same.

English
Many. Much suggests quantity, like, "How much milk is left in the bottle?" "Many" also may mean quantity, or numbers, but implies a large or a specific amount, as in, "How many crayons are in that box." http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/...

English
1 is now correct 2 needs one more comma. 3 needs a comma and a semi-colon.

English
1 - incorrect 2 - incorrect 3 - incorrect Watch where to use the semi-colon In #2, two commas are misplaced - not needed.

Vision
You want us to write your speech? That's your assignment. What would YOU say to your teacher as he or she left to go to visit the USA?

English
When you have added punctuation, we'll be glad to check your work for you.

english
What is your answer? A compound predicate is two or more simple verbs. "Healthy boys work and play."

English 2
Sorry, but I can't provide any links if you don't tell us what you are reading (author and title). I might suggest, instead of web sites that might give you the answers, you might consider reading the stories for yourself. On question 11, which of the choices seems to ...

PLS HELP MS. SUE!! IT ISNT IN MY BOOK :( (History)
I'll bet you dollars to donuts the story of the early republic is in your text materials, but you have to read them to find out.

English
As to specific TV shows that might demonstrate his theories, we don't know what TV shows you are familiar with. You have to decide that for yourself.

English
Without knowing for sure, I assume you are talking about George Gerbner. His overall theory is discussed here, but not knowing what, exactly, you are reading, his thesis statement for that work is not something I can comment on. http://www.uky.edu/~drlane/capstone/mass/...

English
We have no idea what you are reading unless you tell us. Who is Gerbner?

Social Studies
Does that line indicate you agree with #4? If so, you are correct.

English
http://grammar-monster.com/glossary/sentences.htm

English
Subject and verb. Does this sentence have both? I don't see a verb. Do you?

English
A complete sentence has a subject and a verb. Does this one have both? What do you think?

English
An independent clause has both a subject and a verb; it can stand alone as a complete sentence. A dependent clause cannot stand alone as a complete thought. It may have a subject and a verb, but is not complete thought. "If you could come on Sunday..." Is that a ...

english
I don't think your teacher is interested in what I think. What do you think? What small ways do you, or others, rebel against the rules or parents or teachers and other authority/civilization. How about dressing up for Hallowe'en? What can you think of to indulge ...

History
I don't know what you're asking. I don't remember studying Mississippi in algebra class. If your subject is history, as Ms. Sue suggests, you may find an answer here: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/explorers/1600.shtml

English
Well, what do you think? Who is "he"? Does the repetition reinforce the idea that "he" is responsible for these grievances?

Social Studies
1 - no 2 - no 3 - probably, but demand for wheat was also a very big factor. Check your text to see what answer will be considered correct. 4 - Yes, the British 5 - no 6 - yes

English
You're on the right track. This is an excellent source for synonyms and antonyms: http://www.thesaurus.com

social studies
Actually, none of these statements is fully true. Pres. Wilson first welcomed the Russian Revolution and favored the White Russians, hoping for democracy in Russia, but later felt that the communists or Bolsheviks had corrupted the Revolution. http://www.questia.com/library/...

language arts
An adjective is a word that describes a noun or a pronoun. An adverb describes a verb. So, for eample, bats feed GREEDILY, GREEDILY is an adverb describing how bats FEED, the verb. Can you find an adjective?

scocial studies
1 - yes 2 - I don't know 3 - yes 4 - I'm not sure. Recheck your text materials. Crowley's Ridge is mostly forested, but not as rough as the Quachita Mountains.

English
Keep in mind that singing, dancing, and loving are considered joyful things. Why would someone be afraid to do them? Why would someone be afraid to be joyful and express it. The little poem is advice to be joyful, no matter what somebody else thinks. Take a risk! Somebody may ...

English
Okay. Sorry I am not here all the time to get back sooner. Think about what it means. Why would someone NOT dance - whether someone was looking or not? Why should someone love without fear? To harbor fear of being hurt might make you hold back and not love fully? Why would ...

English
Is this an assignment? If so, I'm sure your teacher doesn't want to know what I think it means. He or she wants to know what YOU think.

English
#1 You could just say that violence on TV is a recent problem. "more of" does not mean more often. It implies that violence on TV is a greater problem now than in the past. "more of" means larger or greater, although the frequency of the depiction of ...

SS
No, it is not B. There has never been a monarchy in Iraq.

Microbes and Society
Oregon is clearly the state. I'm no chemist or scientist at all, but from what I know of language, the rest sounds good to me. It was discovered in Alkali Lake, a saline lake. This should tell you more. http://ijs.microbiologyresearch.org/content/journal/ijsem/10.1099/...

Psychology
My knowledge of psychology is only a nodding acquaintance, but I think your answers are correct.

Geography
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/rocks

Social Studies
I think that is correct.

Human Relations
How about your social media "friends"? Do they make an informal group?

Human Relations
You have never had regular playmates, a group you sit with every day for lunch at school, or some other group you hang with? A circle of friends you do things with? Even an on-line gaming group?

social studies
"urban sprawl" is another way to describe it.

social studies
Yes. Suburbs and exurbs are also good words to describe it.

Ms. Sue? Writeacher?
I have not read it. Sorry I can't help you.

english
I have not read this book. Perhaps this will help you: http://www.shmoop.com/scarlet-ibis/

history
Both kinds of laws placed restrictions on people based on whom they were/are. Factors include race, national origin, and other factors inherent in the person or persons. In essence, both say to people, "We don't like you, so you don't have the same rights as we do...

English
What thoughts do you have about the story? Did it prompt you to ask questions about the world you live in? Did it give you any insight into the lives of other people (other than yourself and your family)? Did it help you see the world and the people in it in a different way ...

That was one. Another was to ban the admission of anyone from China. Another is to restrict the number of people who can enter the United States from any one country (it varied, depending on the country). It is any law that puts limits on the number of immigrants who can ...

I agree with Ms. Sue.

A is correct. Good work.
