Questions asked by the same visitor
James took ou t books on astronomy, ornithology: 1 sciences at once abou t tininess and height. He approached the desk with books he’d liked and asked for more—he knew it was easier to find more books with a good example in hand. Then one day, in the first months of 1 955—I remember looking over his head at some awful persistent Christmas decoration Astoria had stuck to the ceiling— he came to me without books. His height had become unwieldy; he reached out to touch walls as he walked, ...
Weegy: Do you have a question for Weegy? User: “There’s something,” I told him. “Come back. We’ll look for it together.” That night after closing, I hunted around myself. The only thing under stature was a book about growth and nutrition. I tried our two encyclopedias under height and found passing references. Not much. In truth, my library was a small-town place, and this was a specialized topic. Still, I was certain I could find more. I got that familiar mania—there is information somewhere here, and I can find it, I have to. A good librarian is not so different from a prospector, her whole brain a divining rod. She walks to books and stands and wonders: here? Is the answer here? The same blind faith in finding, even when hopeless. If someone caught me when I was in the throes of tracking something elusive, I would have told them: but it’s out there. I can feel it. God wants me to find it. That night I wandered the reference department, eyed the bindings of the encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases. James was so big I almost expected to locate him in the gazetteer. 2 I set my hands upon our little card catalog, curled my fingers in the curved handles of the drawers. Then I went to the big volumes of subject headings. Looking under height and stature turned up nothing; anthropometry was not quite right. Then I realized the word I was looking for: Giant. Giant described him. Giant, I knew, would lead me to countless things—not just the word, located in indexes and catalogs and encyclopedias, but the idea of Giant, the knowledge that the people that James wanted to read about, people who could be described as like him, were not just tall but giants. I sat in a spindle-backed chair in the reference room, waiting for a minute. Then I checked the volume of the Library of Congress headings. Giant. See also: dwarfs. We did not have a book, but I found several encyclopedia entries. Nowadays I could just photocopy; but that night I wrote down the page ... (More)

Weegy: Batteries provide a source of stored energy for objects that are portable. [ [ This development has made it very convenient to provide power for handheld or lightweight devices independent of established sources of energy, which is especially handy when traveling. Think of all the things that use batteries and you will see the contribution batteries have made towards human development: Camera Flashlight Cell phone Camcorder Remote control Clock Ipod Mp3 player Toys (many different kinds) Smoke detector Laptop Watches Hearing aid Pace maker Galvanic cells are classified as either primary or secondary. A primary cell is used once and then thrown away when exhausted. A common example is an alkaline dry cell. Alkaline cells are a subset of galvanic cells. Galvanic cells are more generic and use any metals. Alkaline batteries are a type of disposable battery or rechargeable battery dependent upon the reaction between zinc and manganese (IV) oxide (Zn/MnO2). The alkaline battery gets its name because it has an alkaline electrolyte of potassium hydroxide, as opposed to the acidic electrolyte of the zinc-carbon batteries which are offered in the same nominal voltages and physical size. ] ] User: what??
