The first reason that Rikki Tikki is not brave but stupid, is that after an angry nagaina took her egg back he followed nagaina when “she plunged into the rat hole” (p.27) he followed suit. Many would call that brave but he was almost guaranteed to die it was a stupid and pointless decision to go down there. There were other safer ways like waiting at the top of the hole so she either dies of starvation or tries to come out and get killed. He was too ignorant to just wait and without thought just dove headfirst into the hole. He was so guaranteed to die that without hesitation, Darzee the bird, began to sing a song of mourning that insured that “It is all over with Rikki Tikki” (p.27).
Also, she created a plan to destroy the Careers supplies in the cornucopia. This was clever since Katniss knows that without those supplies the Careers would be more likely to lose in the Hunger Games. Odysseus had a similar idea, to defeat Polyphemus. He waited for Polyphemus to sleep so he can attack him with a burning stick.’’Lolling to one side and sleep took him like any creature’’. (Pg 765) As well as this, Odysseus was also clever by tricking the cyclops by saying his name was Nobody.
Evolution was helping the tweezys out here, at any given moment evolution could have chose to kill them off and focus on a different species. Instead evolution had this bird develop a successful beak compared to other birds beaks. After the disaster the tweezys thrived then another round of natural selection and still came in seconds after the spoon mutated. Overall evolution made tweezys’ beaks different than others to see if they survived, and when they did, evolution would keep the beak type cycling around the
The speaker is also justified in killing the snake because he/she was threatened after making the first attempt into killing the rattlesnake, but he only tried to kill the snake because it would be an inconvenience to anyone or any animal on the ranch. Some people may argue that if the speaker just kept themselves and didn’t bother the snake everything would be ok, but think about it this way say you were in the speaker's shoes and you decided to keep walking instead of trying to kill the snake. Later on that day you find out that an animal or person was harmed by the same rattlesnake that you could’ve chosen to kill earlier, but you didn’t. Wouldnt you feel guilty because you could’ve had the power of preventing the whole situation from happening if you decided to annihilate the rattlesnake earlier? In conclusion the authors use of rhetorical strategy shows that he/she was justified in killing the rattlesnake; s/he did it to save the lives of someone who could've been hurt in the future-- by this virulent
The grasshoppers, however, could still come back and were still a threat after picking almost every farm clean of crops Absolutely nothing was left, as Albert Marrin wrote in his book, Years of Dust. This is especially emphasized on page 56, where he says: “All his hopes, all his hard work, had amounted to- nothing” (Marrin 56). The replanting of crops was easier said than done after acre after acre was eaten to the roots by seemingly harmless creatures. Ultimately, the grasshoppers caused more destruction than the drought. and continued to be a problem after the Dust Bowl ended.
They got it worked down to exactly what is causing the vicious animal attacks which is, hydrocarbons in petroleum and cell phone radiation which has affected the pheromones that are normally secreted. It doesn’t affect humans because we have a really weak sense of smell compared to other animals. The only way to test if the theory is true is to shut down all electrical power and cellphone towers worldwide. The President complies and issues a broadcast which is a two week cessation of electrical power. That means no one is allowed to drive, use electricity, or a cell phone for two weeks.
Flowers can self-pollinate when their own pollen reaches their stigma. Even though there are alternative solutions if bees die, bees are the key pollinators because one bee can visit up to 5,000 flowers in a single day. These other insects won’t reach these big numbers because
In the poem “Woodchucks” by Maxine Kumin, how does the speaker strengthen a sense that everybody has a murderous intent deep inside? Throughout the essay, you will see that Kumin introduces the speaker as a frustrated farmer trying to get rid of a problem she is going through. The speaker tries to kill the woodchuck by successfully gassing them. The speaker is frustrated and angry furthermore because his solution is not working in order to protect his garden. Down the line in the poem the farmer finds another means on how to kill the woodchucks and feel like this is the only option to get rid of them, however, wants the woodchucks to not feel the pain.
Pollination is required by the bees and a pesticide that is less harmful to bees, but is also effective at protecting other fruit and vegetable, needs to be created. Secondly, there needs to be a reduction in the human activities that cause stress to honey bees. One way to solve the stress of human activities is to create bee habitats that are located in isolated areas from human activity. These should still be privately- owned and operated, but function so that the bees are removed from harmful activities. Finally, the third cause for the Bee Colony Collapse Disorder is the small beetle that is invading the bee colonies and killing the bees.
Unlike Odysseus, if people were to fight a Cyclops and win, they might still be skeptical because they were fighting a bloodthirsty monster and were lucky to get out alive Another argument for the fear of spiders not being valid is the sacrifices both parties would use in order to complete the challenge. The battle with the Cyclops used men as sacrificed, and lives are sacred. With the spiders, however, only small parts of skin would be in danger of getting bit. The sacrifices used are far apart from each other, that is why some people will think the fear of spiders will be invalid. There are many other reasons on how the fear of spiders can connect to The Odyssey.
