Questions About Andy Period

Why do many African Americans not enunciate the last consonant?

For example, instead of doinG, they will say "doin". Or, instead of happeninG, they say "happenin". It is very common among African American entertainers and celebrities. Even if this is a cultural artifact, doesn't it say, "ghetto"? If the point of the black liberation movement, beyond just unshackling the political binds, was to liberate the black mind and mentality, isn't this really taking blacks back to the stereotyped Amos "n" Andy period? It isn't much of an effort to enunciate, is it?

Can you give opinions on this story?

Honestly, Holly meant to help Savannah. What friend wouldn't help their best friend? It was like Holly to be the shoulder to cry on whenever you were in a terrible mood. It was part of her personality. But she didn't feel like telling Savannah the same thing over and over again. She had tried her best to give Savannah good advice, but Savannah just wouldn't take it. How was she supposed to improve if all she did was get herself in a whole lot of mess? "Did you hear what happened to Savannah Ripley's dog?" Skyler Hamilton asked Connie Ratt. They stood in the cafeteria on a Tuesday afternoon waiting by one of the long tables Holly and her friends usually sat at. By chance, Holly just so happened to overhear their conversation. "Yeah, it was hacked to death." said Connie. "I bet Savannah had something to do with it. Did you know she was psycho?" "Gosh, I knew she was a little weird, but I had know idea she was a complete nutcase. Poor doggie..." "It totally makes sense, though." continued

Art history from the Renaissance to now?

I was assigned an essay that traces the development of style starting with Leonardo's Mona Lisa and ending in Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe. I need to include at least four other works of art between them and talk about the changes in style as the time periods change. The teacher gave some examples such as a Rembrandt portrait in the Baroque or a Courbet figure painting in the 19th century. Does anyone have any ideas that could possibly help me out?

What are the passport requirements when traveling to the Philippines from the US?

I was looking at http://www.travel.state.gov the other day on information on getting a passport for travel to the Philippines. I just 2 questions on the matter. When first-time applying for a passport and once I receive it, is it require to wait at least 6 months before traveling to the Philippines with the passport? I just read something about it, but maybe I am thinking of where I read it needs to be valid for at least six months beyond the intended period of stay. Question 2: I was looking at the DS-11 application for US passport and the very last part where it says Travel Plans, I was wondering, is this require to be filled out? I mean, given the exact date of the trip. I don't have any plan date yet and just looking for what is involve if I ever did decide to travel to the country. I figure I could get a passport in the near future so I will at least have that. Hope none of my questions are too stupid :P Thanks! Andy

Were Zimababwe good at handling spin than England those days?

After being Inspired by a half drawn rant I decided to ask this question.. I am basically talking about the period from early 90's to mid 2000's where Zimbabwe showed some improvement as a test playing nation thanx to players like Andy Flower, Neil Johnson, Eddo Brandes, Murrey Goodwin and Heath Streak. 1995-to 2005 period was the prime of the two greatest spinners Murali and Warne. Murali averaged 19 in England while just averaging 27 in Zimbabwe. As for Warne he just played one match at Zimbabwe and averaged 22.83 while averaging 21 in England in 22 tests. For further proof, look at England's poor performance in India. The last test series win was the first test series victory for them in India after more than 2 decades! England were surrendered to Indian spinners fair and square. In 1998 England Oval Murali took 16 English wickets for 220 runs (155/7 & 65/9) helping SL to clinch their first ever test victory in England. I mean English batsmen couldn't even handle Murali on a gre

Didn't the GOP destroy the idea of Universal Health Care?

Conservatives said that Universal Health Care meant you would have to wait a really long time to get an appointment at a doctor. If we don't have Universal Health Care, why do I have to wait 10 weeks to see a specialist for my back? He isn't the only one in the area, but the only one my insurance will cover. If we had Universal Health Care, I could go where I wanted and get treated sooner. Does the GOP like making people suffer? To Faithful: I'm so happy a Governor/ wealthy person, was able to come here, throw enough money down and get his problems taken care of. But I sir am not a governor nor do I have a bunch of money to throw down. I'm wondering where you are getting your information from about the Canadians having to wait for an exam? You see, my sister in law, who is a duel citizen and lives in Canada, has never had to wait for an exam. Nor did she have to wait for more than 3 weeks for a non emergency surgery on her ankle.
