Which of the following roles was most socially acceptable for an educated woman in Renaissance Europe?

Question by someone: Which of the following roles was most socially acceptable for an educated woman in Renaissance Europe?
a) accountant
b) sculptor
c) biblical scholar
d) political adviser
e) patron of the arts

either c or e. which? & why?

Best answer:
Answer by Louise CI would think that e. is probably the answer you are expected to give, being a patron of the arts was certainly acceptable for a wealthy woman at that time.

there were women scholars of course, Theres of Avila for instance was an outstanding scholar of the ‘Renaissance’ period.

And many women would be doing the accounts for the family business, whatever it might be. A good head for business was considered an asset in a wife during the medieval and early modern periods.

and of course many women would be influential in political life, though more often behind the scenes.

On balance though i think that e. is probably most likely the correct answer to your question.

How to have an easy simple school year?

Question by XxParamoreFanxX: How to have an easy simple school year?
The last two school years have been so rough. I mean Freshman Year I got into a huge fight with a school teacher that involved the law and superintendent, last year I could not pass a class to save myself and my guidance counselor freaked out on me and it seemed as though she had me on a tightrope and if I fell, I was classified as not normal. My friends with their fighting made it so the net underneath was lit on fire. This year, I want a calm fun, ordinary school year. I know there will be some rough spots, there always is but nothing that I can’t handle. Nothing insane like the last two years. Just how do I handle my guidance counselor this year, should I tell her how I felt or go to the assistant Principal about her? My friends I took care of, I told them all to knock it off and all this drama was nothing and was not going to get them anywhere. I want a fun year, a year I can look back on and smile and say “Not Bad for high school”. I got held back this year too so that is no fun. So any tips?

Best answer:
Answer by Jim GYou may see a Doctor about anxiety. Take up something you can learn as an individual, band, art, or sports for example. Try to change the people you see everyday (slowly). A change in clothes or hair might help you. You need to learn to work with in a system that you can not win in. It will be more of a adult situation and you can do it (team player). You knows what the teacher wants well give it to them. Slide in and slide out. Easy does it. Good Luck You can always return to your principles when you are out of there.

Q&A: Does it ever surprise you that schools with more liberal arts kids tend to be bigger party schools?

Question by nice jewish boy: Does it ever surprise you that schools with more liberal arts kids tend to be bigger party schools?
look at georgetown, duke, michigan, or brown…sure they are really good schools but yet people associate them as more of a “party school” than say MIT or Caltech or Carnegie Mellon even though all these schools are peer schools on many measures…its just that georgetown, duke, michigan, and brown have a lot more humanities students than say MIT or Caltech or Carnegie
yuan definitely has a valid point. for an engineering class, I definitely spend serious hours studying to even get a B or B+. To get an A, I really have to work at it. Now in management or my english classes, I can crank out a paper in a few hours and get a B+ or A- without much difficulty.

What is the best wood for carving a recurve bow?

Question by Charles: What is the best wood for carving a recurve bow?
I am thinking of carving a recurve bow. I have lots of carpentry and carving experience and I was formally trained as a sculptor in university, but I’ve never carved a bow before. I am looking to make a recurve bow with approx. 45 to 50 lbs of pull, but I also want it to be a thing of beauty. Thoughts?

Best answer:
Answer by hoodoorocketAsh and yew are traditional, but you really want to build with laminations of wood and fiberglass for best results when you are talking recurve. A straight bow can be carved from any tight straight grained wood. Old popular mechanics magazines from the 1920s through the 1950s had lots of bow designs- look for something like that.

Good luck.

Why should neither evolution nor creationism be taught in public schools ?

by fortunae2002
Question by djhoodie2005: Why should neither evolution nor creationism be taught in public schools ?
I have a debate coming up and I am on the Con team of “Evolution and Creationism should be taught in school”. Which means I am opposed to the teachings of both evolution and creationism in public school. HELP PLEASSEEE !!!

Best answer:
Answer by PeterThis is preposterous because evolution SHOULD be taught in public schools, indeed without qualifying it for the tender sensibilities of the hard of thinking creationist students; evolution is integral to a proper understanding of biology, indeed is the central unifying concept in biology. This is so typical of the schools; they are so intent on being politically correct that they are not even correct. IDIOTS! The schools have become an absolute sham, a joke.

Is it bad to go to your safety school?

Question by Spilled Melk: Is it bad to go to your safety school?
Because a lot of the colleges I really like would be considered “safety schools”, and I know I can get into academically harder schools, but I just don’t like them as much. Am I selling myself short? (That’s what my parents say.) How would this affect me in the future? Thanks!

Best answer:
Answer by SusanThe advantage of a school that has an overall high reputation (like harvard ect) is you may have better job opportunities, grad school opportunities ect. just because people know the schools name, however what’s more important then the school is the reputation of the department you are majoring in. At the same school the language arts department may be highly rated while the engineering sucks or vice versa. Some schools that may be considered easy may have exception nursing, engineering, art ect programs with easier overall programs.

My advice: Do you research check out the salaries and the percentage of people who are employed after graduation in the major/majors you are interested in, compare this to the harder schools. If the harder schools have better salaries and hiring ratios FOR YOUR MAJOR consider double majoring, getting involved in student government, volunteering, and/or getting leadership positions within clubs and organizations on campus, and getting jobs on campus that relate to the field you want. These all will greatly increase your chances of getting hired and possibly improves your starting salary.

I looked at many expensive private schools with good reputations (my first choice) and a highly rated state school. I ended up at the state school and not only did I end up liking it I double majored am making 30 K/year more than if I had single majored at the prestigious schools. It also saved $ 150 K to go to the state school. Just do your research to make sure you are getting into a safety school that will give you a good education.

In response to bruce the company I will be working for in 10 years or less I can easily be in charge of 3000+ people and will have many international opportunities and my masters or phD will be free of charge to me. I chose the job because of the overall opportunities… not only the salary

Q&A: What is the relationship between michelangelos art and poetry?

Question by raquel c: What is the relationship between michelangelos art and poetry?
Michelangelo was not only a great painter, sculptor, and architect, but also an accomplished poet. What is the relationship between his art and his poetry?

Best answer:
Answer by ☼doyoubelieveinGod666☼Fundamental to Michelangelo’s art is his love of male beauty, which attracted him both aesthetically and emotionally. In part, this was an expression of the Renaissance idealization of masculinity. Such feelings caused him great anguish and he expressed the struggle between Platonic ideals and carnal desire in his sculpture, drawing and poetry.

“The flesh now earth, and here my bones,
Bereft of handsome eyes, and jaunty air,
Still loyal are to him I joyed in bed,
Whom I embraced, in whom my soul now lives.”

So many people sincerely interested in MA on Yahoo Answers-Martial Arts ask which style is best?

by Subcity Radio
Question by Beatchanter: So many people sincerely interested in MA on Yahoo Answers-Martial Arts ask which style is best?
And this is pretty natural, as popular Kung Fu movies often pit one style (or School of Thought) against another to prove which is better. (Like Crane against Tiger Claw)
Perhaps a better question might be, how do you tell if the sensei at a dojo is any good.
Or perhaps you too believe style is more important than the individual dojo.

* Is School more important than Teacher, or Sensei more important than Style?
If “Teacher” is more important, what qualities do you look for? If “School” is more important, what style is best?

Best answer:
Answer by iQ FitnessI believe that it is the teacher that is the most important element.

Unfortunately when you are an absolute beginner it is impossible to tell if the teacher is any good and so most people base their assessment on the nicest looking school with the best ad in the Yellow Pages and the most students especially at a blackbelt level, or even more likely in most cases just on the first school that they go into.

Q&A: How much does a painted sculpture cost?

by See-ming Lee 李思明 SML
Question by Liz: How much does a painted sculpture cost?
A sculpture about 5 inches high and 2 inches wide. Detailed painting added to it? Also how much does a sculptor cost an hour?

Best answer:
Answer by great timesI am sorry I can’t give you a straight answer but there are so many variables it’s really hard to just put a price on it.
First, it depends on the sculptor, someone who is more advanced may charge more less where as a student might do it for cheap. Also it’s not guaranteed they will be a good painter as well as a sculptor.
As for the material, do you want this in marble, or water based clay…etc.
Also if you live in an area dense with art/culture it might be easier and cheaper to find someone to do the job.

I would start asking artists specifically and getting quotes from them. Craigslist can be shady but it may help. Sorry I couldn’t answer you question! Hope this helps though.

Answer by kwazywabbottAbsolutely! Every American child should begin an intensive Program in our second language, Spanish, by grade three. To advance from elementary to middle and from middle to high, oral and written tests in the language should be required.

There is a gap between rich and poor in school and everywhere else! It is natural, and our schools should reward only excellence. Now a passing grade in some systems is 50! How far could you get in a career if you could do only fifty percent of the work?
