In this Socratic seminar, many fascinating and engaging topics were discussed, however the group struggled in coming up with conclusions. However one of the most distinguished ideas that were discussed in this seminar was how intentions predict outcomes. The group seemed to all agree that intentions do not predict outcomes, however there can be exceptions. The group continued on expressing their feeling on the topic by pointing out evidence from the books. One example that heated up the debate was how Gorge had intentions of being unique and working up a steak to start his own farm with Lennie however, it did not come to be.

In Ken Kesey’s novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, one of the main characters can be depicted as a messiah figure for the men of the psychiatric ward. A messiah figure would be someone who has leader like qualities and can be seen as a saviour to a cause or group of people. Randle McMurphy, the newest addition to the hospital, changes things the moment he steps foot inside the institution and profoundly demonstrates the characteristics of a saviour through his actions and what he says. Although he is crude and boisterous, he takes the men out on a fishing trip, alluding to an actual bible tale where Jesus takes his twelve disciples out onto the boat. McMurphy also exhibits attributes of a leader or perhaps an individual whom all the other men trust more and leads them all on a journey to become proud and confident again.
His IQ goes down because he wants his old life back and his old friends, no matter what they did to him in the past. Another quote, which demonstrates and reinforces the second argument is the following, “I figured out a new way to set up the mixing machines in the bakery to speed up production.” (p.59). In this quote, Charlie Gordon says that he found a new way to set up the mixing machines in the bakery to speed up production. This happens in the middle of the book when Charlie has an IQ of 185.

Jesus Christ adopted his new figure in order to redeem mankind. According to The Passion of Gatsby: Evocation of Jesus in Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, “Gatsby evokes Jesus carrying his cross” (Dilworth, 1). On the last day of Gatsby’s life, he “stopped for a pneumatic mattress…. And the chauffeur helped him pump it up” (Fitzgerald, 161) Gatsby then “shouldered the mattress” and headed to his swimming pool. The way Gatsby “shouldered” the mattress is similar to the way Jesus Christ carried the cross over his shoulder.
Also, The hog and the meerkat (I do not remember their names), they can resemble the deacons/disciples of the church. They both help Simba realize how to face and get over his past mistakes, and lead Simba back to his kingdom where he will reign over all the land of Pride Rock. The disciples during Jesus' time helped him guide them towards his kingdom, and despite the hatred and dilemmas they went through, they were still able to help Christ accomplish his goal. The church is also built upon the crowd it attracts, and in the Lion King, all of the animals that worship Simba, Mufasa, and Simba's son (towards the end of the movie) can resemble the pews of the church.
Although initially helpful, demographics don’t usually “paint the entire picture” (Lamb, 143) or “shed light on the passion points and interests of an audience” (Affinio, Inc.). Psychographics actually “add meat to the bones“ or “the skeleton” of demographic segmentation (Lamb, 143) by connecting on a “cultural and emotional level” with consumers (Affinio, Inc.). Even Todd Yellin, VP of Product at Netflix, depicted demographic data “as nearly irrelevant" (Brennan). "An audience 's interests transcend demographics” since consumers can “share the same passions and interests” (Affinio, Inc.) and thus similar identities, “no matter their age, income bracket or geographic location” (Kittaneh).
Yes he was more adventurous than most people, but that does not mean he wanted life to be a constant danger. from the very beginning of the book it can be seen that Chris did not have a liking for materialistic things. This is why it is mentioned on page 20 that Chris had no desire for gifts and would not accept the car that his parents offered as a gift, and in fact got mad at them for thinking he may have wanted it. Chis did not only explore because he “loved to live life on the edge.” It was also his way of escaping the world full full of wrong.
The middle of the chapter begins to go more in depth about the deadly germs living within the meat that most people consume on a daily basis. According to the book, foodborne illnesses are now more easily transmitted due to, feedlots, sanitation issues in slaughterhouses, and meat grinders. Although there is mass distribution of meat that may possibly be infected with dangerous bacteria, the government has no political influence on whether or not the meat will be recalled or not. Recalling meat is all up to the company and they most likely won’t recall their meat unless it is a very serious
fascinating “Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie." is the focus of “things you can change, not the things you can 't change.” In this novel Steven was frustrated because he couldn 't do anything about Jeffery having leukemia and the family is extremely low on money. So instead he learns from Mrs.Gally that he should focus on the “things you can change, not the things you can 't change.” With this advice Steven changes things about himself for the better.

This means Faber is actually choosing to conform to society even though unlike Mildred Faber has already been enlightened to the truth. When most people are born they conform to the ideologies of their parents and communities, they don’t choose to conform, however they can choose not to conform. In the beginning of Fahrenheit 451 Montag is a conformist who burns books for a living; however as the book progresses Montag begins to read books and his opinions on the way his society is changes. In Fahrenheit 451 Faber tells Montag “pity, Montag, pity.
In this particular context, visitors to one of our Asian races (Hawaiian) witnessed a story that made them believe that Asians consume dog meat. According to Wu, the story further describes that they display their evidence of dog eating through exhibiting “pale yellow dog teeth strung together” in glass cases (Wu 39). With this in mind, society assumes that dog eating is common among Asian Americans due to these kinds of stories. However, this is not true for all Asian Americans. At a personal standpoint, my family and I have never tasted dog meat nor have our ancestors ever consumed it.
