2 AnswersPoetry6 years ago### Samsung S3 Mini phone 10 points for answer?

I (very) often unintentionally let the battery of my mobile phone drain to 0%. The other week, it won't charge up at all and following advice, I took the battery out and placed it back in. It worked. Today the same thing happened but even when I took the battery out, the phone shows the charging sign for a few seconds and goes completely black after. No response even after pressing the on-off button for 20 secs. Any suggestions besides getting a new battery?

1 AnswerCell Phones & Plans6 years ago### Poem by Rupert Brooke! 10 points!?

"The stars, a jolly company,

I envied, straying late and lonely;

And cried upon their revelry"

This is part of the poem called "The Jolly Company". Do you think "straying late and lonely" refers to the speaker or the stars?

1 AnswerPoetry6 years ago### Math calculation! 10 pts?

I've been calculating this many times over but the number I got just doesn't tally with the given.

I scored 36/60 in total for part 1 of my test and 32/75 for part 2.

Can someone help me calculate the overall percentage points?

What do you understand by the phrase "to ooze juicily at the last round the bearded lips of God"? This is from Part 1 Chapter 2, an excerpt from F. Alexander's book (with the same title as the actual novel).

Appreciate any interpretations!

5 AnswersBooks & Authors6 years ago### George Orwell's 1984?

In 1984, why is English Socialism associated with totalitarianism? Was this also happening in the real world (in the 1940s a.k.a. when Orwell was writing the novel)?

1 AnswerBooks & Authors6 years ago### 10 points (: Question on Catcher in the Rye?

In chapter 12, Holden says "It was pretty quiet, though, because Ernie was playing the piano. It was supposed to be something holy, for God's sake, when he sat down at the piano. Nobody's that good."

I'm confused as to how this should be interpreted. Does Holden mean to say that the music piece is holy, but in actuality, nobody's that pure/ religious? Or does he mean that Ernie sitting down at the piano is holy because he's such an exceptional and inspirational performer?

Please clarify!

1 AnswerBooks & Authors6 years ago### Sartre vs. Descartes?

Please help!

Descartes theorised, 'I think, therefore I am'. Sartre said that as human beings, we can choose to be whatever we want.

Aren't they similar then? Say, if a human being is an animal because he/she thinks that he/she is an animal, doesn't this fall under both Descartes (he/she thinks, therefore he/she is an animal) and Sartre?

Please correct me!

Teenagers these days seem to have an aversion for healthy drinking habits, preferring soft drinks etc to plain water.

I'll really appreciate any of you who can provide suggestions (be it in terms of a campaign / changes to water bottles) as to how they can be encouraged to drink more plain water.

Thanks!

1 AnswerMathematics8 years ago### help with an economics qn please?

I am trying to understand the idea of complementary goods: coffee and sugar. Technically, if the supply of coffee were to fall, its equilibruim price and quantity will rise. What then happens to sugar? I looked at it from two perspectives:

1) Eqm price of coffee rises, qty dd falls, and dd for sugar drops

2) Eqm qty of coffee rises and dd for sugar rises.

Can anyone help to reconcile the two ideas? :( ultimately, what is the effect on sugar?
