Monkey himself is an animal, but he does gain things that celestials may commonly have like enlightenment, immortality, and holy weapons. These things along with his persuasiveness and boldness do make him seem superior to animals and humans, but he is still, at most, an equal to some celestials.

He claims that man’s greatest survival trick has been his inquisitiveness. The author has stressed upon a Magnified Reward Principle, where the naked ape, especially babies prefer actions with exaggerated feedbacks. These include playing with noisier and bouncier toys, and finally it was the art of drawing and painting that caught man’s imagination in terms of a more profound visual impact followed by certain actions.

Kipling writes that “they would all rush together in mobs and shout: “There is no one in the jungle so wise and clever and strong and gentle as the Bandar-log (42).” ” The Bandar-log monkeys are the complete opposite of their descriptions of themselves, and the monkeys also brag about the tasks that they do not accomplish. Baloo says that “they boast and chatter and pretend that they are a great people about to do great affairs in the jungle (Kipling, 31).” Today’s bullies and the Bandar-log monkeys believe that they are better than everyone else, and they both think that the things they do are something to be proud
Besides, it can be seen in the movie that women were used and did not even taken seriously. After fulfilling his needs, Bond left Solage deceiving her by ordering beverage. When he comes back he learns that she was tortured and killed. Moreover, these subliminal messages may cause such problems as violence against women in accordance with Katz in video ‘A Violence against Women it is a Men’s Issue’ (Katz 2012). In contrast, Vesper is demonstrated as smart, ambitious and beautiful at the same time.
Discrimination against women has been happening everywhere for a plethora of years, and there has been progress on making it better, but it is still a big issue. Women in American and especially in other countries like Saudi Arabia and Iraq are struggling with female discrimination in many more ways than one would think and it is a serious matter. There are some issues like when a man says to a woman “did I ask you to speak?” and “be quiet, men are speaking” that men say to women just as a simple joke, but women really do take it seriously. There are other small problems, like how women are the ones who pay for more common household items than men do, women aren’t as involved in the government as men are, and how young women do not get treated
And where this adds a bit of multimedia fun to the overall game, it opens a major door in terms of security and safety. As more and more people flock to the game, it is becoming more difficult to determine which users are actually playing the Pokémon Go application and which users are using the phone for other purposes. Specifically, a person could open up their video recorder and follow you stating that they are playing the game.

Overall, the game poses too many problems to be safely integrated into the market place for all users.
Today the crowd would be stunned with disgust towards the man. In the discussion of marriage, one controversial issue has been abuse.

New Media is a field of constant evolution and change. The opportunities for argument creation and advancement shift and flow with the advent of new mediums of media and communication. Modern day mediums constantly advance in vie for their legitimacy. In 2011, the Smithsonian American Art Museum hosted the exhibit The Art of Videogames providing insight to the public of the expressive power intrinsic to the field .

Even though these girls might be on the same level as the boys who have been playing longer, these girls are still not treated fairly. Concerning the characters, “it implied that boys and girls aren’t equal.” The mention of “equality” shows the difference in perspective, to an outsider they are just characters on a screen but to the gamer it is so much more. Boys are considered to be better players by most people, but when a girl beats them it can be taken as a type of insult. “An increase in online harassment and threats toward some female.” No matter how good these girls might be at gaming, the boys might feel like their turf is being invaded Ross says.

Along with courage and loyalty, Rikki shows the heroic characteristic of cleverness, which is a quality found in a multitude of humans. Rikki is very clever when he develops the plan to smash the cobra eggs. He asked Darzee, one of the birds in the garden, to pretend that her wing is broken to distract Nagaina so that he can sneak into the melon bed where the eggs are hidden and kill the eggs.

With video games becoming super popular, many experts think that the most realistic video games are getting the most violent students are becoming.
