Sponges are sessile whereas every other animals that I can think of is capable of locomotion (movement, motion). They are considered an evolutionary dead end, so to speak. That branch just kind of sort of ended at some point.

In-text citation
What would I use as the in-text citation for something like this? "William!@#$%^&erill." Encyclopædia Britannica. 2009. Encyclopædia Britannica Online. 23 Jan 2009 <h://w.britannica.c/EBchecked/topic/123681/William-Cockerill>.

Social Studies Essay Thesis
Well, I'm doing a report on William C-o-c-kerill (Ignore -) and I need a thesis statement that answers this historical question: What was the importance of William!@#$%^&erill and how did he impact future generations?

Social Studies
I can't find anything there. I even have membership to the Britannica Online Encyclopedia and there is only like a paragraph there.

I CANNOT seem to find any good information on William!@#$%^&erill, an entrepreneur of the industrial revolution. I have to do an essay on him, but can't find any information. ~Thanks.

Point Slope Form Algebra
Not all that much really. The little ones (1's) are just ways of differentiating between different coordinates so you do not get confused as to which set belongs with which point in the grid.

You can eliminate some of these safely. It is not E by definition. A was a means toward expansion, so not that either. C has to do with the buildup of naval power for the sake of said purposes, so no. Either B or D.

Algebra
Think of doing it without a calculator first. To what power would you raise a base of ten in order to get the number 85? Think of the relationship between logs and exponents! 10 ^ 1.93= 85.11380382. The subscripted number is the base (a bass voice is a low voice). What the log...

I would say that human growth hormone would be an extreme measure. You would be better off to simply accept yourself you who you naturally are.

Ms. Sue tackled this one better than bobpursley did. How could this have led to flaming wars?! This one at least deserved some level of serious consideration instead of just being pushed aside.
