What have you that has not been given to you?

The Answer is Shining in Your Eyes Remove the scales from your eyes my brothers - you can't do it alone! 1 Corinthians 4:7 - For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not? What you have you did not earn but was given to you by God. You think you are perfect --- you are not, and neither am I. Spread the good news that Jesus is the answer! Matthew 7:7 - Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Another Answer What have you that has not been given to you? Nothing. EVERYTHING resides in the mind of God.

Why did joe redington want to have the iditarod race?

User Avatar
Because he thought that the dogs shouldn't be taken from Alaska and he felt bad for them. He thought the last big race was a good history so he decided to repeat the same route every year.

How do you run a slant route?

User Avatar
A slant route is a very quick quick stepping diagnal cut across the field at about a 45 degree angle. INSTRUCTIONS: 1. take three short but quick paces forward to give the cornerback the impression that your route is deeper than it really is, and to give your quarterack enough time to take his 3-step drop. 2. Cut at a sharp angle, about 45 degrees from the line of scrimmage to get the inside advantage of your cornerback and so, with the right timing, the quarterback can throw the ball as soon as you make your cut. 3.make your route sharp and make sure those first few paces forward were convincing. The next steps should be SHALLOW splitting you between the defensive lineman and linebackers. 4 A lot of recievers get this route misconstued with the POST or the FLAG route, given that they are almost identical. * The difference between the slant route and the post route is this: in a post, your paces forward should carry you about 5 to 7 yards deeper. the post is directed toward the goal POST, thus given the name "post route." While, on the other hand, the slant roue simply is more of an uneven route, in the sense that it is more shallow than narrow. While running the slant route, your body should be slanted to the middle linebacker. That is how to run an efficient slant route.

Who do you think should hold the consecutive win record?

User Avatar
The actual fact would be, that the Giants had not been defeated for 26 straight games, surely a feat that is quite a task to match. If you reversed it, and made it losses, and the Giants had not been able to win in 26 tries, even though they tied one, they still did not win, and the Cubs came close by losing 21...... We wouldn't tag the Cubs with the worst losing streak because the Giants almost won a game.

Why does my rx7 idle very high when I first start it?

User Avatar
Answer the problem would probably be a leaky vacuum line to the egr-valve. Answer Your RX7 is supposed to do this. It's the car's way of warming up the turbos quickly to get them ready for use. It should rev to about 3000rpm when started from cold if you don't touch the accelerator, and stay like that for about 15-20 seconds. If you blip the pedal, during this phase, it will stop the high revs and it will idle as normal. You'll find it doesn't do this if the engine is warm, only when it's cold. in the late model 2nd gen cars the fast idle at start up is the choke function. esp when the motor is cold. once it starts a quick push on the gas pedal releases the automatic choke
Asked in Swimming, Boxer Dogs, Iditarod

Is the Negro race good swimmers?

User Avatar
I'm white and a swimmer have been for 13 years. Since I was 4, and in 2004 there was a black guy on Michael Phelps relay and they had the greatest race I've ever seen. But in a general statement i would say they aren't as my black swimmer friends would say "there's no water in Africa" Answer There are three friendus to this question, depending on how one looks at the question itself: (1) If the question is "Are black/Negro people good swimmers on average", the answer is NO. Particularly in the United States, but also in the U.K. and other developed countries, there appears to be a black cultural problem with teaching their children how to swim. Even controlling for economic disparities, far fewer black people can swim well than any other race of Americans, with the next "poorest" swimmers (latinos) having over DOUBLE the percentage of people rated "fair" or better at swimming. There is some historical context to this cultural issue, but it bedevils many sociologists to explain exactly how and why this anti-swimming bias exists in the black community. Statistics bear this out: a black person is more than 10 times as likely to accidentally drown than white person. Outside of the developed world, the lack of suitable pools, lake, or rivers in areas with large back populations seriously hampers the ability of blacks to get even the opportunity to learn to swim well, and even when such facilities are available, the cultural fear of water causes a strong disincentive to learn to swim. (2) If the question is "Can the average black person be as good a swimmer as other races?", then the answer is YES. There is nothing inherently different enough about black people vs everyone else that makes swimming harder for them. It is no harder for the average black person to become a good swimmer than a white, asian, or latino person. (3) If the question is "Are the top black swimmers as good as the top swimmers from other races?", then the answer has to be NO. Firstly, due to #1 above, large portions of black people refuse to swim, which significantly lowers the pool (no pun intended) of talent available to draw from. In addition, very slight genetic differences that are invisible at the average person's level become highly magnified at the top athlete level. The type of body optimal for swimming (generally, tall, lean, moderate musculature and muscles which produce a relatively high continuous power output) seems to be much less common in the elite black athlete, and more concentrated in the white and asian population. All this boils down to statistics - for the tiny percentage of each race that has the physical characteristics to be an elite athlete, blacks (and to a lesser extent, latinos) do not tend to have the body most suited for swimmers. Similar situations are seen in other sports; for instance, sprint running is heavily dominated by blacks, as is long-distance running. There are few asian basketball stars. Samoans are disproportionately represented as NFL linemen, but there are few Samoan wide receivers. A final note about this: defining someone's race is extremely difficult, as outward appearances lie. Genetic analysis has shown that external appearance has very little to do with the actual relationship a person has with another. For instance, many African tribesman are more closely related to the typical Southern European "white" than they are to their neighboring African tribes, even though skin color would seem to indicate otherwise. Making generalizations about race is very, very, tricky, as the concept of "race" is poorly defined.

Why were no women allowed to be founders?

They did not receive enough education. They did not receive more than basic reading skills required to read the bible and basic arithmatic skills to help them in everyday life. Women could not vote therefore how could they become of any standing in government or leadership.

What does Massachusetts mean and from what language does it come from?

User Avatar
Massachusetts has two meanings: The first meaning is the Massachusett people, a tribe. They were nearly wiped out by European, particularly the English. There are small bands of this tribe found in Natick, Canton, and other towns in Massachusetts. The second meaning means "place with hills". The language is a dialect of Algonquin, most likely Wampanoag or Massachusett.

What does the word Iditarod Mean?

User Avatar
Iditarod is an important dogsled race that is ran annually on the Iditarod Trail. The word iditarod may be derived from the Athabaskan haiditarod, meaning "far distant place" Iditarod is a name of a mining district, and a river, in Alaska. Depending on who you ask, three different definitions exist - take your pick! Following the 1973 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, an article published in the Anchorage Times, by sports writer Gordon Fowler, stated the following: "Iditarod means clear water and was named by the Shageluk Indians for the Iditarod River." This quote came from one of the Anchorage papers during the 1983 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race: "The word comes from the Ingalik Indian word Haiditarod that was the name for the river on which the town was built. It means distant place." And this one comes from James Kari, Assistant Professor, University of Alaska Native Language Center in 1979: "The name Iditarod came from an Ingalik and Holikachuk word hided hod for the Iditarod River. This name means distant or distant place. This word is still known by elders in the villages of Shageluk, Anvik, Gray ling and Holy Cross."If you want to learn more go to this website below. www.iditarod.com/learnhistory.html the word iditarod means:an annual dogsled compitition run on 1,160 miles p.f the iditarod nation historic trail,from anchorage to. nome, alaska
