Imagine an emotion so strong it can drive you to do unthinkable things. Something that you will regret the rest of your life. The emotion is what we call “Jealousy.” Jealousy comes to us when we see something that we want but don’t have that others have. NIck is jealous throughout the book when he visits his friends houses.
As a result both the tragic heroes had a horrible outcome in which leaded them to their death. I think it could have been avoided if they did not mistreat their women poorly and could possibly had an alternate happy ending that would have prevented their death. In Willy Loman’s, case he treated his wife poorly, who made her weak minded. As a result she would encourage him into thinking he was a great salesmen. His ego grew with her motivation of making him believe, and this gave him the idea that he could say and do whatever he pleased, meaning that he could mistreat her, and have an affair with another
It can really damage both people and maybe ruin the relationship in the process. In the article “The Reprehensibility of the White Lie,” Pier states, “The most important element of a white lie is its destructiveness; the act of telling one hurts both the receiver and sender.” For example a wife may ask, “Do I look fat in this dress?” The husband may lie just because he is in a rush to go eat so he will say, “You look fine.” He may have gotten away with that simple lie but he just may continue with lying just because he was not caught.
In "America Needs Its Nerds" the author Leonid Fridman develops his argument by stating how the nerds feel when they are made fun of by others, how America has created stereotypes and how people look over them for the "cool kids. " Many students take pride in their education. They also try to keep their grades up because academic achievement is important. Students who study hard and work hard do not like to admit to others how much they study/work. The author states, "Many students are ashamed to admit, even to their friends, how much they study.
From the NF article “Many teachers also say paying students for good grades creates conflict with students and teachers getting money.” This means that students will be bragging about how much money they get about getting good grades. This also means that teachers will be having problems with the kids. The effect on this is that kids will not get along because the other student will be bragging about how much money they got, and the other student might of not gotten as much money. In addition paying students affects the student and teachers relationships.
Depending on how desperate a teacher is for good test scores, inappropriate preparations can be made before testing, sometimes even to the point of cheating. While having standards and a uniform teaching model, high -stakes testing is generally detrimental to the education of America. The importance of these tests has become the be-all and end-all of high school. The accountability of the testing will follow the student throughout his or her educational life. Despite being held in such high regard, the high-stakes testing effects are far from the desired and predicted
In conclusion, social promotion ultimately hurts students far more than it helps. Social promotion creates perpetual cycles of unpreparedness for students as they continue to fall behind in classes. The better solution for struggling students is extra help and counseling. If a student struggles in a particular subject to the point of failure, they should be given extra help and more broken down explanations of the concepts. Students should not be passed into harder classes when they couldn’t manage the previous
Lust and Distrust A tale of passion, the Shakespearean play Othello discusses consequences of patriarchy that surface within romantic relationships. Conflicts of jealousy are sprouted from the seed of assumption, which both Desdemona falls victim to once planted in Othello’s mind. The short lived joy of marriage is overpowered by doubt and manipulation, resulting in fatality. Less dynamic in comparison, Emilia and Bianca’s partners mistreat the women regularly; signifying faults formerly present in each relationship.
When a person is greedy, they may obtain everything they have ever wanted but in the end they will still be unsatisfied because they want more. Both of these entries do a great job at showing the false sense of happiness that is present in today’s
Nurture often determines one’s success but not in a way that an individual would think. People always think that the more money someone has, the more successful they will be in life, but it is the less money someone has that makes them more successful. Kids that grow up with less resources tend to work harder than the ones that grow up with more. It seems that wealthier kids slack more than middle class kids, while most people think that it should be the other way around, they do not think about how we as people tend to believe that money is the key to success. The nature and nurture in someone can determine their success if they let it, because research shows that a middle class child can succeed higher than a wealthy child because having money seems
Though many aspects of this chapter enhances the corruptions and detriments of society, this quote specifies on how this lifestyle poisons our morality. I can relate to this quote regarding my academic life. As Howard would say “you are all victims of the Scarsdale School systems,” many students, myself included, work tirelessly because of fear. We are scared of competitors and standards, and have truly lost sight of what we hope to achieve and why. I find myself stressed with the goals to beat other students, get into the best college possible, and please my parents.
States can also participate in cheating by lowering the target goals or changing what test is used. Districts have also been found tossing the scores of the students who dropped out of the school, eliminating many low test scores (Ravitch The 156). When competition and demand is high the urge and rates of cheating increase, showing that merit-based pay reliant on test scores creates more issues then solutions. To have test scores determine pay motivates teachers toward a manipulative and twisted version of success, and not the right version of
Someone is likely to succeed more if they are given the tools from a parent who has been also very educated then a child who has a parent that is uneducated (170). I think this is not a case of causation, but a case of correlation. Parent’s who have succeed in life always will give a lot more motivation and resources than a parent who likely is working a job without much motivation and a lack of resources (175). A causation is another event that is led from a previous event. The parent is likely not to motivate if this is the
When it is shared among two individuals, everything can seem right in the world. But love is a powerful entity as well. Its drug like effect can create envy and jealousy, irrational behavior, and it can make life miserable when it isn’t reciprocated. Esch’s growth throughout the book - from her first love, to being rejected, and to realizing that love surrounds her by way of family – shows that first love isn’t everything. Love can come from more than just a major crush on a boy.
Tracing back to the 16th century witch hunting has been around causing the lives of many innocent people destruction. Witch hunting has never died off, it is still here today. In my opinion witch hunting will always exist and occur as long as we have fear, ignorance and jealousy. Many people were accused of being a witch or committing witch activity mainly throughout the 16th and 19th century. Primarily because people fear for what they don't know or can't understand.
