Not so willing to disclose that Koby now pulls a sponsorship of $250 000 a year. They 're keen to play up their tough home life and upbringing. We see their unseemly background and lives as children and why they turned all their attention to the ocean and surfing. Coming from hardened backgrounds and negligent parents, the brothers raised up to form a clan of fraternal camaraderie with the Maroubra local boys, as well as strong statuses as world-class surfers of immense breakers. The film’s narrative structure is, at times, difficult to navigate, partly due to Sunny’s dual role as a subject and first-time filmmaker.
In watching the film at first glance, Hollywood takes an intense approach to displaying who Jim Morrison actually was throughout his short life. He was witnessed as a drug abuser, a hippie, an occult participant, and a performer wanting to be heard. Jim Morrison was actually “..a kid from Florida that grew up within a strict household that escaped to California to attend UCLA…” (Huey). It was a constant change during this time of his life as he went from studying film and the theater to slowly drifting off into the world of poetry and psychedelics. It was then while going to UCLA that he met the other band members that would unite to become The Doors.
Reality’s Hardship on Life’s Unreal Expectations Written by James Hurst, the short story “The Scarlet Ibis” strongly emphasizes how the pride of Brother leads to unattainable and highly impossible goals, and how setting the highest goals can bring you down even further. Setting and trying to complete tremendous goals in a short amount of time is dangerous like when Brother urges, “School was only a few weeks away, and Doodle was far behind schedule...I made him swim until he turned blue and row until he couldn’t lift an oar,” giving the reader the view of Brother and his highly anticipated expectations which go over and beyond Doodle’s limits. Pushing over your boundaries, just a little bit over a long period of time, will help you to improve such as how Doodle was taught how to walk, but trying to take down these colossal objectives and
First, Odysseus’ bravery, he shows his bravery by confronting massive and terrifying creature that endangered Odysseus and his men 's’ lives. “That nightmare cannot die, be eternal evil itself-horror, and pain, and chaos; there is no fighting her, no power can fight her, all that avails is flight(Book 12. 79-82).” Circe clearly explains that the sea monster named Scylla cannot be slain but, brave Odysseus doesn’t seem to take that as a challenge he simply tells his men to keep on rowing so that they can see their home once again. Circe tells Odysseus that he must create his own plan with his men and he decides to take the risk to go through the terrifying monster such as Amphitrite, Charybdis, and Scylla. “Cyclops if ever mortal man inquire how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye: Laertes’ son, whose home’s on Ithaca (Book 9 .416-419).” These were the words of Odysseus as he decides to taunt the great and mighty Polyphemus.
This shows that it takes a while to get to know the hidden workings of a place, even if they are right in front of you. Gessner is just one of the hundreds of other people with the same passion that have overlooked it. In Learning to Surf, Gessner’s passion takes him out of is comfort zone. He paddles out, not on a kayak, but a surfboard, experiencing what he has vividly watched every morning. Being now, directly in the bird’s environment, he was able to experience a different view, and a new sport at the same time.
The article begins by describing the context of a less-than-anticipated talk from Bill Nye. Diehl argues that Nye lacked focus, precision, and relevance. He concludes, “Nye didn’t try that hard” but it was fun and an enjoyable spectacle. This was immediately followed with “CAB knew it could get away with just that much.” The jump in blame from Bill Nye, himself, to CAB is unexpected and Diehl offers no explanation or transition. Before this point Diehl relied heavily on pathos to convince his audience but this specific appeal to logos lacks substantive proof.

Throughout the story, the oiler was one of the most industrious characters and most optimistic about life. This is evident when the author writes, “The oiler plied the oars until his head drooped forward and the overpowering sleep blinded him; and he rowed yet afterward” (116). The poor oiler who has been rowing all night is so exhausted that he falls asleep, yet somehow, he still manages to keep on rowing. This sets the oiler apart in the story as none of the other characters works as hard as he does. The oiler is also the only character who never says, “’If I am going to be drowned—if I am going to be drowned—If I am going to be drowned, why, in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the sea, was I allowed to come thus far and contemplate sand and trees?
The immense natural power of water is in constant focus within Synge’s and O’Flaherty’s stories. The wonders and dangers of them are unavoidable; on one hand, you have men of the Aran Islands forced to brave the sea for the survival of their families. On the other, you have this magical lake that people believe to be bestowed with dark and divine power. Ironically, both tales contain contrasting themes that parallel at specific moments, emphasizing on the thematic nature of the subject matter. Within Riders to The Sea, the water acts as a source of anguish and comfort, with seemingly more power than God.
