In The Secret Life of Bees, the author uses conflict to teach us if something is worth fighting for then you should never give up, which is this story’s theme. For instance, “Your mother ran off and left you. The day she died, she’d come back to get her things, that’s all.” That quote is an example of Lily’s father trying to tell her that her mother did not love her, and that the day she died she was coming back to get her things, not Lily. Lily knew her mother would not do that to her, so she traveled across the state South Carolina, to find answers about her mother in North Carolina. Another example of how the author is trying to teach this same theme is “Your mother left you, Lily. Let it alone.” This example shows another way someone in
The idea of killer bees showing up in your backyard and killing you may seem a little far fetched. It isn’t. You could be walking to school not doing anything out of the ordinary and they could attack you. The killer bees you might hear about are what are called Africanized honey bees. They are way more aggressive than the regular bee you would see in the park or in your garden. Until that feeble kind you know are dominated by the Africanized killer bees, and the Africanized ones are the only ones left!
Do you ever look around and ask yourself, "Where have those fuzzy, black, and yellow worker bees gone?" Well, I do! Bees are hard workers and whether they are pollinating plants, making honey, or just flying around making that "Bzzzzzz" sound they are always working. People underestimate the power of bees and the benefits they bring to this earth. The truth is they are very important to people and to the earth, but people don't realize that, and neither did I. After you get finished reading this essay you're going to know some of the answers to those "why" and "how" questions people always ask about bees. Like "why are bees dying?" or "how can we help them?" So, let's begin!
Finally, Boo shows characteristics of a mockingbird by leaving Scout and Jem presents in the tree, mending Jem’s pants after they ripped, and even kills Bob Ewell to save Scout and Jem. Resembling a mockingbird, all Boo does is contribute to others, he never arms them. Scout says: “Mr.Arthur, bend your arm down here, like that. That’s right, Sir. I slipped my hand into the crook of his arm. He had to stoop a little to accommodate me, but if Miss Stephanie Crawford was watching from her upstairs window, she would see Arthur Radley escorting me down the sidewalk, as a gentleman would do.” (Lee 372.) This clearly demonstrates the theme by the kindness and innocence he shows when he asks Scout to walk him home. Scout finally sees Boo as more than a person, but a mockingbird, when she calls him “Mr. Arthur” and “Sir.” As shown, To Kill A Mockingbird develops the character Boo as a metaphor for a Mockingbird using how his image is based on lies and rumors, his caring heart when he puts a blanket around Scout’s shoulders, and his kind heart when he leaves presents for Jem and Scout and saves them from Bob
Last summer I went on vacation to Puerto Rico with my cousins. We did really fun things like snorkeling, a boat ride, and eating at many wonderful places. Although all those sound really fun, I want to talk about the time I met the most cutest, most fluffiest, most friendliest, animal ever.
The first major aspect that leads to the Creature’s fall from grace is appearance. Victor works tirelessly in academia because he believes to have found the solution to generate life. Once Victor succeeds, the Creature’s demonic appearance mortifies him. Victor describes his work with disdaining imagery, stating, “I had gazed on him while unfinished; he was ugly then; but when those muscles and joints were rendered capable of motivation, it became a thing such as even Dante could have conceived" (Shelley 36). Although Victor successfully creates what would be his greatest academic achievement, he abandons his creation, showing that the Creature's ugliness is a prevailing factor for his isolation from civilization. According to Bridget Marshall’s
It can be hard for the deaf and hard of hearing to become engaged in theater. Sign language interpreters, though extremely helpful, do not allow deaf audience members to fully experience a show. South Plantation High School, one of the only schools to offer a program for the deaf, cast tradition aside to create a rendition of “The Crucible” that is truly one of a kind. The dark, witchcraft-filled production follows a series of deaf characters who are narrated in English, rather than the other way around.
It was just a typical family day out at the beach like so many other Sunday, after our usual picnic lunch at the beach, everyone went about their own activities. My husband was fishing while our children played in the shallow end of the water. I was reading a novel; but somehow, I simply could not concentrate on my book; which is a rare occurrence for me. It seemed my sensory organs were especially attuned to the surrounding that day. Gentle sea breeze tickled my face as I watched wisps of white fluff drifted across a crystal clear blue sky. The rhythmic sound of the wave; the screeching of the sea birds was so familiar and hypnotic at the same time. However, my children’s pearls of laughter turned all the other sounds into background
This project was chosen to investigate the decline of the honeybee and the impact on Australian agriculture. The honeybee decline is interconnected with environmental sustainability with key environmental challenges threatening the future of the honeybee and the industry of beekeeping. Some of these factors such as land degradation, limited water availability, loss of plant biodiversity, climate change, pests and pesticides loss of public lands such as National Parks, State forests and reserves, all impact on the sustainability and ecosystems which the honeybee depends and likewise, the ecosystems depend on the honeybee. With the disappearance of land to urbanisation and government restrictions on access to public lands some 70% of Australian

Honey bees visit around 50-100 different flowers in one collection trip for honey; What would happen if millions of hives are declining in populations? The decline in bees is a serious problem that could cause the beautiful spring colors to turn dark and saturated without colors. This epidemic is worldwide, and could be a serious problem, more than one third of what goes on your plate is made with products that have been pollinated by bees (The Bees in). The bees have been declining in most of Europe because of the rough cold winters they have had the past years dropping their populations by almost 53%, as well as pesticides dropping the populations and killing of the entirety of a single hive (). This problem could cause a
Based on a scientific analys , the very accelerated loss of species that we are experiencing could be up to 1,000 to 10,000 losses per year. these losses do not only include wild animals or mammals that are constantly haunted , but also small pollinators such as bees. the bee decline is a an issue that is currently affecting most of North America and many countries in Europe , but the number of bee colonies are increasing in China .
Have you had a loved one that worried you sick? It was a another day at school, and Konnor can’t wait till the bell rings to go home. Today Konnor is going to go play some basketball at the lower lake in Eureka, IL. He is going to go with his older sibling Kaleb, and his cousin Austin. The basketball hoops are a little rusty and old, but the hoops are still adequate to play and shoot into. It was a long day of hard work at school, but Konnor got through it! “RING!” the school bell went off, which alarmed Konnor and he got up from his seat and dashed out the door and onto the buses. Konnor is the fifth stop on the bus, but the ride only takes around ten minutes. The bus trekked all the way to his house, then he got off and ran inside,

Her persistence and heartwarming story entertain the audience while providing an inspiration for achieving goals. Thus, Akeelah and the Bee has a central theme of goal setting because it focuses on the achievement of Akeelah’s goals and how others affect her both positively and negatively.
Spring is in the air. So we are swarms of bees, looking for new homes. Initially, we have to recognize what kind of “bee” you are handling with. Common “bee” sightings fall into various different groups of potential species, of which most are not really bees. Now we are concentrated on removing honey bees only. We should not throw sticks, rocks or other items at the swarm in an attempt to drive it away. We are not attempting any procedures of bee control other than the advice I am going to give you here. We should not spray any chemicals. This could stimulate the bees, and is completely unnecessary. Given the troubles faced by all bees, we need to take care to protect the ones we have. We have to find a local beekeeping group and contact them.
