Be more specific. Do you mean health benefits/risks? Do you mean economic benefits for growing coffee? For health issues, start here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=coffee+-+benefits+and+hazards&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=adb6d820509b4f9e882792ca2742a561&pq=coffee+-+benefits+and+...

I don't know MLA very well. I used APA and have that manual. :) In any case, the web site is the publisher, whatever it is. And I think you'll find the guidelines you need here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=web+site+citation%2C+mla&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=...

I think what your notes indicate (probably accurately) is that poverty rates may be high in high density areas, there is no cause and effect correlation. You can't say that people are poor BECAUSE they live in a high-density area. There also may be more (relatively) ...
I think both your answers are wrong here. Cheers could be heard? Whose cheers? And someone wishes, so she is the subject of the sentence, not a possessive.

Criminal Justice CRJ 220
In criminal justice, a juror who believes all young black men are thugs at heart may prompt the juror to vote to convict even if the defendant probably didn't steal that particular candy bar. He's probably guilty of SOMETHING bad, so lock him up!

Just one example: a deeply held belief that only people of white European ancestry are intelligent, as "white supremacists" say they believe. That precludes the idea that people of other ancestry can be of equal value to society and precludes learning anything that ...
the Wi-Fi here is dodgy at best. Let's see if this works: http://www.bing.com/search?q=local+control+under+European+colonial+rule+-+the+americas&FORM=EDGNNC THAT'S what I wanted to you to see. :)
OOPS. That IS the wrong link. I'll repost when I get the right one back again.
I think you can start here to explore the topic. The Spanish, French, and English (as well as the Dutch and Portuguese) all were somewhat different in how they exercised control over local affairs. No one article or paper is going to address all of them at once. To find more ...

I don't know how you can lose a book unless you are very, very careless and dropped it in a mud puddle or left it on the bus - but...Ms. Sue is right, your library may have a copy. If not, you can purchase a new copy from wherever you got the one you say you lost, or order...
I agree with C, yes.
First, I have no idea what a poem about swimming has to do with American Government. I do agree with your answer to #11. I'm not familiar with the poem "Olympic Swimmer". Do you know what a paraphrase is? Which of the choices for question 6 best restates the idea...
Hint: You must read the novel in order to do this exercise. If you refuse to read it, you will fail and deserve to fail.

Well, how do YOU interpret the tone of these lines? All sunshine and lollipops? Very scary? A dire warning? A promise of paradise to come? What do YOU think?
I hope Ms. Sue and I were of some help. :)
Oh, my goodness. Where to start? The most vivid example would be the Industrial Revolution. Men began working in factories, away from home. When shoes or barrels or whatever were made by hand, the workshops were in the home or on the farm. Women and children were involved in ...

What do you mean, the value of studying history or as a career? The value of studying history is to know where our world and our own society has been, how it developed, and how and why we got to where we are. As someone once said, if we don't know where we've been, how...
Another reason to resist new information or knowledge is that it might disprove something we already believe to be true. That makes people feel uncomfortable. A relative of mine believes that President Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya. Neither is true, and has been ...
There is a counter-argument made just the other day by President-elect Trump. He says he does not need to learn via daily national security briefings. He already knows because he's smart. Can you think of any other counter-arguments about why learning new things is not ...
What novel are you reading? Who are these characters? And the questions and answers make no sense whatsoever. What is a "direction result", for example? What does "LJ takes Kenny loves" mean? Nothing at all!

I disagree. What does your text say? Checking accounts are important as a means of remitting funds, but that may not be the most important thing banks do.

Social Studies HELP
Yes, it does help to read your text materials before you start guessing at answers to questions about what you are supposed to have read. It's amazing how that works, really!
As for the impact of the 1949 takeover by communists, also read your text materials. Your answer may be best if it repeats, in your own words, what the text says. That doesn't mean it tells the whole story. You can begin learning more here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=...
Social Studies *Check Answers*
I disagree with both your answers. Our U.S. Constitution is an attempt to keep government fair, others may not be, by our definition. It depends on how one defines "fair". Rethink the answer to the second question, too. Is it "most" powers?
I don't think we can answer this question. What constitutes the "tribal government"? An executive council or chief? Is it a legislative body? Is the judicial board not part of the tribal government? If the "government" refuses to recognize part of ...
Speak these sentences out loud as if you were really speaking to a friend or relative. Which syllables are stressed to make your meaning clear? For example, #5: "Please bring me a chair." If it was a demand or command, you might emphasize "chair". "...

That depends entirely on how one defines happiness. There are whole books of philosophy and psychology on the subject, and many theories. Here are some resources, but there are lots more: http://www.bing.com/search?q=happiness+-+philosophy&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=...

What would you think, based on the reading of your text materials? If you don't remember what you have read, go back and re-read with this question in mind. Which of these phenomenon had the greatest impact(s) on Beijing's relationship with Taiwan? With Mongolia?

I don't think any of the tutors here are experts in art history except that we enjoy art. This sounds good to me, though I'm not pretending to be an expert.

No. Re-read and re-think.

Yes, those acts did that, but that's not the right answer. That answer makes immigration sound like a positive. The Alien and Sedition Acts did not see it that way.
#1 is okay. #2 should read "ended in a draw" (or a "tie"). In #3, "the" is not necessary. Tug of war is tug of war.

Numbers one and four are not in active voice; they are passive. The subject is the road or the door. It just is whatever it is, closed or shut. In active voice, it is the city or "they" or "he" who did the action in closing the street or the door.

I have a hunch that the answer is buried in your text materials. If you play pirate and read them, you are likely too find the buried treasure. Failing that: http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education/whatischemistry/landmarks/norbertrillieux.html
Most people in both the North and South were farmers, so their lives were similar in that way. As industrialization took place in the North, more and more people began working in factories, while the South did not industrialize, continuing to rely on agricultural products such...
I think all your answers are wrong. Go back and re-study your text materials. For example, in #22, what does the phrase "that I like best" modify? It modifies the word "name", which is a noun. Therefore, it cannot be an adverbial clause. An adverb modifies ...
World War II was a war. Nazism was a political movement.

This should help you. Keep in mind that a linking verb simply links a noun to a phrase or word that describes it. It involves no action, as in Sammy making lunch or someone driving to a destination or chopping down a tree, etc. http://www.grammar-monster.com/glossary/...
"made" is not a linking verb. Sammy did something, so it is an active verb.
I don't see the other options.
I recommend you read your text materials, then answer the questions. Someone here will be glad to check your answers.

Which words are descriptive of the scene, your feelings, etc.? Your verbs are mostly intransitive, not active, but your descriptive words do "paint" the scene, etc.
Your text materials also address the case and its consequences, I'll betcha dollars to donuts. It's amazing what is in there if you read it.
