Answer:

It's incorrect. I'm going to assume you're using APA 6th edition here. There are a couple of rules to remember when citing. 1. Don't trust the database to provide proper citations. 2. Check your citations against a reputable citation site. One of the best one's to use is the Purdue Owl. Here's a link: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html In APA citations, titles are always sentence case. This means capitalize the first word of the title, any proper words, and the first word following a colon (which is the first word of the subtitle). This is a very important rule to remember, as it's the most common mistake I see. In this case, the title would be Django unbleached: The languages of power and authenticity in mainstream film. Your journal title is capitalized correctly, as you should capitalize all major words in a journal title. Make sure it's in italics, though. The volume and page numbers are correct. If the work as a doi, you should just put doi following by a colon, then the number. Here, it's doi:10.1080/01956051.2018.1562415

Question:

I'm writing a paper on drug abuse and my professor says I need reputable websites. This is a .org, which I've heard are all good. Is this a good website to use? https://www.sutterhealth.org/pamf/health/teens/drugs/drug-use-abuse

Answer:

It's important to try to find the author of any website you use for your research. Although the site you listed was reviewed by a doctor, the article was written by "Teens Participating in the Summer Wellness Program", as indicated at the upper left. Not all .org websites provide high-quality information, which is why it's so important to evaluate the site. A great way to search Google to find the best results is to limit. Try searching site:.gov and then your search term. For instance, if you want information about drug abuse, try site:.gov drug abuse. This will return only government websites. Government websites give the most accurate information, and are accepted by professors who allow websites in a research assignment. Another way to perform an advanced search is by following these steps. 1. Perform a search. 2. Click on Settings--advanced search. 3. Scroll down to see ways to limit, such as "Last update." to retrieve newer results, or "Domain" to limit to a .gov, .org, .edu, or a .com.

Question:

When I'm listening to music, how can I tell the difference between orchestral works in the Baroque style and orchestral works in the Romantic style?

Answer:

Typically, works written in the Baroque era, such as works by Bach or Handel, utilizes a smaller variety of instruments. You won't hear tubas, trombones, or clarinets in a Baroque works.. In Romantic orchestral works, you will hear an entire orchestra with lots of instrumental colors. The composers in the Romantic era use more dynamics, too; meaning, there are more loud sections and soft section.
