What is the distinction between regular writing and scientific writing?
The two key distinctions between regular writing and scientific writing is audience and diction. In scientific writing, it is acceptable to assume that your audience has the specialized knowledge to understand general ideas that describe scientific methods or concepts. Since the audience already has a working understanding of the core concepts needed to comprehend the writing, then the author can use scientific diction that may not be suitable for other audiences.
Explain what evidence suggests that implicit and explicit memories are supported by different cognitive systems.
Although both memory types fall within the realm of long term memory, scientists are not sure that the are supported by the same cognitive systems. Studies have gathered empirical evidence by analyzing the regions of the brain that are activated when recalling certain memories. For example, the role of the hippocampus as been attributed more to the formation and recollection of declarative memories while the role of the cerebellum has been attributed more to motor learning and the creation of procedural memories. Further evidence is drawn through studies focused on memory loss. If we look at patients with conditions such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, who are able to retain motor skills or memory of how to perform certain skills while not being able to recall their past, we can see that the two memory systems are likely to be supported by two different cognitive processes
Subject: US History
Explain how African American women in the suffrage movement faced racism within the movement and were denied the protection of femininity.
The suffrage movement emerged during the early nineteenth century as women across the U.S. came together to fight for their right to vote. However, due to the time period the movement was segregated by race and pointed to the extremely limited protections offered to black women. African American women face prejudice from both white society and male society. This meant that within the suffrage movement African American women faced racism from the same white woman that they were fighting for the vote with. For example, suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony infamously stated that, “I will cut off this right arm of mine before I will ever work or demand the ballot for the Negro and not the woman.” This exemplified the attitude of many white suffrage at the time, and showed their alliances with black women were self-serving. Furthermore, while white women wanted to fight for their rights, they did not need to in the same way as black women. Black women held virtually none of the same protections of femininity that white women did. Marriage and childbearing did not exempt them from sexual violence, mistreatment or hard labor. For African-American women, the suffrage movement was about more than being able to vote as a woman, it was their chance to be recognized as women.
