The stories Leka has told Stephen have really opened his eyes and mind to the idea of beauty which was something he has never considered before. Leka believes a real man is sensitive and expressive of his emotions. “There is not much room in the world for glass roses.” Initially, Stephen doesn’t see the value in something like glass roses. The reason Leka emphasizes the significance of the glass roses is to reinforce the idea that even though something is fragile it can still be valuable. This presents a huge shift in thinking for Stephen and places value on things that would not be helpful in his current environment.
Temptation Ramifications In Stevenson's novella, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Jekyll gives Lanyon, his distant friend, a critical choice: he can take the potion Lanyon had helped him obtain or he can leave without any explanation. He says “will you be wise? Will you be guided?...or has the greed of curiosity too much commanded you...as you decide you shall be left …. neither richer nor wiser.” (40) Jekyll, in his creation of Hyde, gave into temptations yet he still refers to it as negative or “greedy”. Furthermore, the words “wise” is used twice in contradicting ways.
The quote “Knowledge is power, but a power that can be abused” means that people with lots of knowledge can abuse their power. For example, in The Pearl, the doctor knows what he really should do to cure Coyotito. Instead, because he knows that Kino doesn’t have as much knowledge as him, the doctor decides that he shouldn’t try his best and he uses a fake medicine that doesn’t help Coyotito. Also, in The House of The Scorpion, El Patron abuses his power of knowledge knowing what he can do with clones but instead decides to use them. People with knowledge can either use their knowledge wisely and in a good way to help others or abuse it and use it in a bad way not helping others.

The ad uses pathos by both motivating the customer to be active and to “sweat it to get it” but by also frustrating him by telling him he can not have the beverage until so. I believe Gatorades goal is to motivate its consumers to be fit and active whilst consuming the beverage. The use of pathos in this scene seems to spark curiosity for the audience. I found myself curious as to why the customer wanted the drink so badly to the point that he was willing to argue with the clerk over it. While the customer was getting frustrated and patiently waiting, the clerk was giving was seemed to be logical reasoning as to why he could not sell the Gatorade to

The ticks that hold lyme disease were very common in the salem village area. They could have left the marks on the afflicted and caused many many strange behaviors. In Document D it says that the jury is acting to pass out so this proves that disease is still a possibility. On document E it shows a map about where witches accusers and defenders were mostly on the left side where bread was more common and ticks were more common. This shows that the more population in an area the more bugs that are attracted
Suzan Shown Harjo’s quote is satirical, yet very realistic and full of factual information. Frybread, consisting of non-nutritional items like “white flour, salt, sugar and lard,” can cause deadly long time diseases for Natives. For example, heart disease caused from clogged arteries, diabetes which leads to an array of external and internal issues like cataracts and dialysis. These diseases not only shorten individuals’ lives, but also cause devastating effects on the person and their families. Harjo willingly blasted outlandish accusations made by Natives on frybread being an “Indian” food; it is a cardio infarction waiting to happen.
Much as for Brown the “thingness of the object” is the psychoanalytic “Thing in excess of the object” (42), in The Things They Carried, the “things” humped by the soldiers represent what is real and approach, asymptotically, the traumatic reality of war” (Silbergleid 135). The soldiers carried a lot more than just physical weight and the mental and emotional burden weighs them down. Our narrator, Jimmy Cross, believes that he carried the idea of Martha so heavily that he caused Ted Lavender’s death. Ted Lavender carried so much anxiety he has to carry tranquilizers and marijuana to soothe him. In a more abstract sense they carried burden and guilt.
Black Plague Outbreak in Western Massachusetts If the Black Plague were to infect the people of Western Massachusetts I would stay in my home. The risk of catching the disease is even greater if you were to travel to different parts of the world. The plague is spread with contamination, with animals, human beings and more. You have the risk of coming in contact with contaminated animals or beings, such as rats and mosquitoes. The black plague was a very successful disease in the mid 1350’s due to the low medical ability and knowledge of the people populating the city or town.
The constant sound of shooting guns and cannon fire would ring in your ear, as you can hear excruciating shouting of wounded and hurt soldiers or the undaunted attackers sometimes cheering or often laughing diverged into a background haze. Slowly the lice would breed on men, and could not be washed off completely because the little microscopic eggs would nestle in seams and aligning’s of the soldiers clothing. Also, artillery shells would crash repeatedly into the trenches, multiple men you would see suffered from shell shock. I hope the war ends soon. This war is the greatest evil that has been created to corrupt our souls.
