How do the intersections of race and gender (or racism, sexism, and homophobia) play out in the film?

Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj56iZNVZ-c video and answer the following questions. The video takes about 50 mins and there are 4 questions that go along with it. There is a 400 word minimum for all the questions combined.
1.a. How do the intersections of race and gender (or racism, sexism, and homophobia) play out in the film?
1.b.How are these dynamics similar or different to other moments in South African history portrayed in the sections you have read so far in Crossroads: I Live Where I Like? 1.c.How do these intersections play out in the context in which you currently live?
2. A key theme in the film are the tensions and tenderness in movements/moments of solidarity. How does this connect to prior conversations about radical vulnerability in this course thus far? Reflect on how this plays out in the film, and then reflect on how this maybe similar or different to your own experiences of solidarity/collective work.

How close is this to the actual surface temperature of pluto?

1. If the emitted infrared radiation from Pluto has a wavelength of maximum intensity at 75,000 nm, what is the temperature of Pluto assuming it follows Wien’s law? How close is this to the actual surface temperature of Pluto?
2. A red giant star has a surface temperature that is 1/2 of the Sun’s surface temperature, and its radius is 50 times larger than the Sun’s radius. What is the ratio of this star’s luminosity to the Sun’s luminosity?
3. You observe two stars. Star A is at a distance of 100 light years, and its luminosity is equal to 3 times the Sun’s luminosity. Star B is at a distance of 200 light years, and its luminosity is equal to 6 times the
Sun’s luminosity. What is the ratio of the apparent brightnesses of these two stars, as seen from Earth?
4. A star is moving away from the Earth at v = 120 km/s. (a) Is its spectrum redshifted or blueshifted, when we observe it from Earth? (b) If a spectral line in the star’s spectrum has rest wavelength 400.0 nm, what is the observed wavelength of this spectral line when we measure the star’s spectrum?

How do the music and voices make you feel?

Watch a Human Rights Watch video on LGBT+ rights in Afghanistan and answer the following questions. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sEItg9RdEY&t=2s
How do the music and voices make you feel? What do you think are HRW’s intentions in these aesthetic choices? Do we learn anything about the history and place of queer desire/experiences/identity in Afghan society?
Do we learn about LGBT+ organizing in the last more than two decades of the US-backed Afghan government (also called, the US occupation of Afghanistan)? What is the impact of that in the current generation of LGBT+ Afghans? Do we learn how queer folks and allies support each other in the current context?
If you didn’t learn anything about the issues mentioned in #2, #3, and #4, then why do you think that is the case?

Give examples.

please make sure that you are familiar with local history. Here are topics for the essay on our midterm. The three topics below are very general. While I will use one of them on the exam, expect it to be far more specific in its scope. Thus the exact wording will be different and ask for particular details.
1) Discuss the major migrations of people into the Pacific that occurred up until the past 500 years of so (prior to European exploration).
2) Discuss the challenges and tensions Gewertz and Errington discuss between systems of commensurate and incommensurate differences as experienced by the Chambri.
3) Discuss Gewertz and Errinton’s metaphor of “twisted histories” to interpret recent changes experienced by the Chambri. Give examples. Totally have no idea about these three questions. Please give ur brief explanation, around 100-200 for each question
