As a matter of fact, he is loyal to him because he starts primitive training with him until he is as good of an assassin as his dad was, but when he finds out that his dad did not work for Scorpia he turned his back on all of Scorpia. In contrast, another theme is disloyalty towards others, for example, Alex is disloyal to Julia Rothman when he wears the retainer in his mouth that has a tracking device in it. He wanted to do this in case he got in trouble, he would start the tracker, so m16 could come help him. Moreover, this contributes to the theme of disloyalty by showing that Alex no longer wanted to be a part of Scorpia. Alex no longer wants to be a part of Scorpia because he has found out that they actually killed his dad.
He was traveling by car until a flash flood happened causing him to abandon his car and travel by foot. After that he burned his remaining cash and began to go by the name Alexander Supertramp. Alex first met a hippie couple named Jan and Rainey. Rainey told Alex that his marriage with Jan is rocky and that brought back a flashback for Alex when his parents would fight all the time and abuse each other in front of him and his sister. He then helped rekindle
Love is one of the most important values of Alex. He loved Dr. Jo Wilson in which he proposed to her. Unfortunately, she said “no” and they broke up. This was one of the most depressing moments in Alex’s life because he never felt dejected by someone. It was love that traumatized him and made him feel sad.
He lives only by obeying to his own rules and the rules of nature but not following the law. Alex lives at his own interest. At one point, he is caught shooting a deer and is caught in between trouble because no Alex actually exists and also that he did not have a hunting license. When he Is finally let go he refuses to go get a hunting license because he believes that the government has authority to know Alex’s business and know what he hunts and what he eats. This goes back to the way that he wats to be free but also free from the entire world.
Nevertheless, Skinner points out that children learn nothing from the punishment. Instead, they may start to work out how to avoid it (Nolan & Raban, 2015). Another concept is classical conditioning (classical behaviorism) that emphasizes on the relation between stimuli and response. This concept embodies in a famous experiment, in which the food is presented to the dog when the bell rings, and the bell becomes a conditioned stimulus for the dog (Nolan & Raban, 2015). Likewise, if children receive toys in the condition that they behave well, then they will probably repeat this behavior to get the toys.
Alexie uses the violence and darkness he has had in his past, to help himself open up more to his readers, and to better express himself in his stories. Alexie has shared his life to many people. On an article online called, “The Famous People”, it has a biography on Sherman Alexie. It talks about everything that has happened in his life. You get told that Alexie had an alcoholic father who was hardly around at all, but when he was he seemed to be abusive.
Operant conditioning is a type of learning process where the strength of a client’s behavior is modified by reinforcement or punishment. Dr. Foxx’s work with Harry is an example of operant conditioning because of the techniques he used with different levels of consequences, for example time out and physical reinforcements. With that being said Dr. Foxx used Harrys restraints as both positive and negative reinforcements. In addition, some of the examples Dr. Foxx used to work with Harrys problem behavior
When Nikolei told one of his servants to go kill Alex, he (Nikolei) was not actually physically killing Alex. And when Nikolei died, he was killed by the CIA (Central Inteligence of America) not Alex. The only time when they confronted each other only when Nikolei imprisoned Alex, but soon after the CIA came and killed Nikolei and saved Alex. As Alex is facing Nikolei, all he is doing is putting himself in more danger. Throughout the novel Alex has conflict with Nikolei and his team.
Alex was on Bully not only because he wanted to stop getting bullied, but also because it focuses on families coping with the abuse of their children that they are facing from bullying. It also focuses on trying to show what kids are facing when they are getting bullied, and what it looks like. After being on the show, Alex was working very hard in class, bringing all of his grades up, all because he was on Bully. Another thing that Alex Libby got out of for
A Clockwork Orange is set in a dystopian society, controlled by a restrictive, tyrannical government and denotes a substantial disaccord between the citizens and the state. The novel is narrated by fifteen-year-old Alex, who speaks in a fictitious argot known as Nadsat. Alex and his ‘droogs’ (5) – Dim, Pete, and Georgie – venture the streets in ‘ultra-violence’ (5), attacking, robbing, and raping whoever they please. One night, Alex is arrested amidst another criminal act, putting his ‘ultraviolence’ to an end. In prison, Alex is offered to take part in an experimental behaviour modification treatment, known as the Ludovico’s Technique (91) – an aversion therapy believed to eradicate his violent tendencies – in return for a reduced sentence.
Alex is a tall Canadian with blond hair and blue eyes from the book Forbidden City who I will be analyzing. First, Alex is very curious about history and wars. Some proof of this is on page 4, where he says, “I had model airplanes hanging on threads from my bedroom ceiling. Three tanks guarded my dresser. An armoured personnel carrier defended my desk.”
Alex still wanted to go on his Alaskan odyssey, but didn’t leave as soon as he had the chance. The day he left, he told Franz that he needed to go on an adventure himself and experience the world and what it had to offer. Franz asked Alex if he could adopt him when he came back
Paper 1: BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION Becky Templin Clovis Community College February 17, 2018 Introduction The theory behind behavior modification ethics has a reputation for its accomplishments and disappointments. In addition to this, there are many dangers in using physical punishment as behavior modification with the two primary modifiers of behavior being Classical conditioning and Operant conditioning. The outcome of using negative reinforcement has its share of benefits and downfalls in human behavior whereas; positive reinforcement seems to win over.
In chapter 7, I found the concept of punishment to be most intriguing. Punishment is a part of operant conditioning which was theorized by B.F. Skinner. Punishment is often confused with negative reinforcement. However, the main difference between the two is: while the goal of reinforcement is to increase the likelihood of a behavior, the primary goal of punishment is to reduce the chances of the behavior it follows. In 1938, Skinner concluded that punishment produces only temporary suppression of behavior but later research found that effects may be permanent.
