## Eight Days In The Dust Bowl

404 Words | 2 PagesFirstly, they would drink 2.6 gallons every 5 days for 240 days. Secondly, 240 days overall divided by every 5 days would be 48 days of distributing drinking water (240/5=48). Thirdly, you would have 48 distributing days multiplied by 2.6 which is the amount of water distributed this would give them 124.8 gallons distributed in the 240 days to a single person (48 x 2.6= 124.8). In the final analysis, they have multiplied 124.8 by 4 since that is how many people are in their group which gave them 499.2 gallons of water used (124.8 x 4= 499.2). Since only 41% of the cow and bull’s weight are consumable the group has a total of 409147.2 grams, or 902 servings, of consumable meat divided by four (902/4=225.5) then into 1.5 servings, or 680.4 grams, per 2 days and 3 bushels of wheat that is plenty for the first 120 days.

## Intolerance In To Kill A Mockingbird

1691 Words | 7 PagesIntolerance of Society Many tragic events are caused by the world’s inability to accept differences between human beings. This concept is seen throughout the history of the criminal justice system. Conflicts like lynching come as a result of intolerance, and as Betty Smith once said, “Intolerance is a thing that causes war, pogrom, crucifixions, lynchings, and makes people cruel to little children and each other. It is responsible for the most viciousness, violence, terror, and heart and soul breaking the world.” The Criminal Justice System is a huge part of why the south, or even America as a whole, had so many problems with lynching which is exemplified in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”

## Epistemic Modesty Analysis

487 Words | 2 PagesTo begin, Gomberg argues that a normal human life and reliable knowledge of the world around us requires us to have two virtues: we must trust what others tell us; we must be modest about what we believe ourselves to know when we recognize we may be wrong. He goes on to say that trust in knowledge by testimony is important because testimony is a special way of acquiring knowledge. It allows you to learn things such as when you were a child, your name, colors, animals, words, parts of our bodies, and common objects in the home. You learn these things from the people closest to you, like your parents. But as you grow older, you come to realize that this "testimony" isn 't as special as people may think it is.
