Question and answer
what factors influence blood alcohol concentration? What level is considered safe for driving? What level is considered unsafe?
BAC levels are affected by many factors, including: •How fast you drink. Alcohol consumed quickly will result in a higher BAC than when consumed over a long period of time. •Gender. [ Women generally have less water and more body fat per pound of body weight than men. Alcohol does not go into fat cells as easily as other cells, so more alcohol remains in the blood of women. •Body weight. The
more you weigh, the more water is present in your body. This water dilutes the alcohol and lowers the BAC. •Amount of food in your stomach. Absorption is slowed if you’ve had something to eat. With a BAC of 0.05, an individual’s vision may already be affected in terms of sensitivity to brightness, the ability to determine colours, and depth and motion perception. The brain’s ability to perform simple motor functions is diminished. This means that a driver’s reaction time will be slower and responses will be less accurate. The result is degraded driving performance and a significant increase in collision risk. ]

would you agree with this comment? User: Our writing style is very important, therefore I must get these subject-verb in agreement. I will practice on my singular and plural subject-verb agreement. When we use a singular subject, then we must use a singular verb. When we use a plural subject, then we must use a plural verb. Your writing style can determine whether you have a successful outcome. what would you say about this commment?
Weegy: A fragment is a sentence which is not complete, and therefore not grammatically correct. Sentence fragments are problematic because they are disjointed and confusing to the reader. [ [ There are three main causes of fragments: (a) a missing subject; (b) a missing verb; (c) "danger" words which are not finished. There are three ways to check for sentence completeness: 1. Find the subject. A subject is the noun or pronoun about which something is written. To find the subject of a sentence, identify who or what is doing the action. If there is no subject, the sentence is a fragment. Consider the two examples below. "The student felt nervous before the speech." "Thought about leaving the room." The first sentence above is complete, because it contains both a subject and a verb. The subject of this sentence is the student. The sentence contains a subject which answers the question, "who or what felt nervous?" The second sentence is a fragment, because there is no identifiable subject. The sentence does not contain a subject which answers the question, "who or what thought about leaving?" To correct the second sentence, one could write: "He thought about leaving the room." Alternatively, on e could combine the two sentences to form one complete sentence: "The student felt nervous before the speech, and thought about leaving the room." 2. Find the verb. A verb is the action word in a sentence. Verbs express action, existence or occurrence. To find the verb in a sentence, identify what happened. If there is no identifiable action, the sentence is a fragment. Consider the two examples below. "Many scientists, such as Einstein, think in strange ways." "Many scientists think in strange ways. Einstein, for example." This first example above has one complete sentence followed by a fragment. "Einstein, for example" is a fragment because there is no verb. "Einstein" serves as the subject (he is the one doing something), but the rest of the sentence does not ... (More)

what are the cardiometabolic risk factors you cannot control?
Weegy: There are, unfortunately, some risk factors for CVD that we cannot prevent or control. The most important are these: ¦ Heredity. [ A family history of heart disease appears to increase risk significantly. Whether the increase is due to genetics or environment is unresolved. ¦ Age. The risk for CVD increases with age for both sexes. Seventy-five percent of all heart attacks occur in people over age 65. ¦ Gender. Men are at greater risk for CVD until about age 60. Women under 35 have a fairly low risk unless they smoke or have high blood pressure, kidney problems, or diabetes. Hormonal factors appear to reduce risk for women, although after menopause or after estrogen levels are otherwise reduced (e.g., because of hysterectomy), women’s LDL levels tend to go up, which increases their chances for CVD. ¦ Race. African Americans have a 45 percent greater risk for hypertension and thus a greater risk for CVD than whites. In addition, they are less likely to survive a heart attack ] (More)
