Derek did say a couple times that Ben was a mean to people he didn’t like such as Jacob and himself. What was the most damning piece of evidence against Jacob? Was there anything that you felt exonerated him? At First I thought that the knife that Jacob had was a piece that was very hard to disregard, however I feel that the story that Jacob wrote resembling Ben’s murder from the porn site that he always goes on basically was his confession in a sense. To write a story about a murder right after he’s very skeptical, but to know details of the story based from the murder is something that need attention because its shows that he could have been involved.
This hurts his credibility a bit because the author is already creating the idea that he does not seem like a good person but as the story goes on the word actually has a different meaning. The word victim shows that people who have feared him rather than people who were harmed by Staples. The use of victim is strong, even if it creates a bad impression, it creates the belief that the author is
This basically means that harming something or someone that doesn’t do anything wrong, is a sin. In the book, cruelty and vehement behavior were more visible when someone not deserving of being attacked, is attacked. The mockingbird had its own beauty that shouldn’t be messed with. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy” (119). The aggression of the story was due to the fact that people didn’t have empathy
“Now was the first time that I begun to worry about the men- I reckon I hadn't time to before. I begun to think how dreadful it was, even for murderers, to be in such a fix. I says to myself, there ain't no telling but I might come to be a murderer myself yet, and then how would I like it?” (76). This is the first time that Huck questions the actions and outcomes that he has set in motion and the effects they have on other people. After he realizes that he could now be considered a murderer, he makes a plan to get a captain to go investigate the wreck in order to save the men's lives.
While Montresor was successful in his use of reverse psychology to avoid obstacles in his plan, he failed at following his own rules. Although someone may take insults directed towards them as a reason to seek revenge, Poe has pointed out that even those people who plot and plan their tactics and have guidelines fail. Ultimately, this story shows that revenge is an unachievable
“You should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution-with what foresight-with what-dissimulation I went to work! “ (Poe 692). That is until he starts explaining his motivation towards why he killed the old man, but as the narrator explains he does not know why he killed the old man that is until he speaks of the old man’s evil eye. “I think it was his eye!-yes, it was this!” (Poe, 691). The eye of the old man showed the narrators true intentions a mirror into his own mind showing him his true self.
As proven here, his mental state is breaking. He begins to get paranoid for his actions, and believes the officers are laughing at his mistakes, his failure, but they were simply humored by a joke. When revealing the old man’s body, he did so out of pure fear, that they saw the crime he committed, just like the old man’s eye. Now allow me to explain, of course the deceased man’s eye didn’t do anything wrong to him, but that’s is not what he was telling himself. He felt as if the eye could see through him, and that it knew what he was thinking.
Arrogance is that of an exaggeration of one’s own abilities or conceited. He believes he is well by ignoring the symptoms and spinning them in a manner to prove they have improved his state of mind. The tone is excitable due to his mental illness and the structure of the work and suspenseful because he leaves you hanging on every line. What will he do/say next? Poe offers a look into a sick man’s mind.
Soviet Propaganda Famous for its lack of direct warfare, the majority of battles in the Cold War were fought via propaganda. Although the theme of the propaganda between the United States of America and the Soviet Union ranged from the science to sports, I focused on the nuclear arms race. The first poster I analyzed, named “Washington’s Dove of Peace”, was created by a Soviet civilian with military ties. This is evidenced by the fact that the language is Russian, and the blatant targeting of the USA. The poster consisted of a gang of criminals, representing Americans, stuffing a dove with an atomic bomb (with a “US” label), accompanied with the statement “Though artfully disguised, it does not hide your cowardice”.
The atmosphere of mystery is presented throughout the novel, because all the character could be the murderer or an accomplice. At the end of the story, the narrator is in the town and tries to resolve the mystery of the Santiago Nasar’s murder, but the narrator does not get something more than Santiago Nasar is death. It could seem an imaginary novel, in fact, it is. Chronicle of a death foretold is one of the most relevant work of magical realism. All works included in this literary movement mix real events with fantastic elements.
To be able to use the appeal Szilard uses his credibility as a subject matter expert and involvement on the atomic project to make his petition more creditable. How the knowledge, reputation and expertise of a group of men can be used to provide valid points to express why the uses of atomic bombs are not a good idea, Szilard first point in his petition is about his fellow scientist, who also signed the petition, with also a background in the field of atomic power. “We, the undersigned scientists, have been working in the field of atomic power for a number of years.” (Szilard, 1945). I believe Szilard should have elaborated a little more in his point in a way that he could use more facts supporting his background as a scientist in atomic power, doing this he could have made the argument better because the reader in this case the President of the United States nor the people might not be aware of how powerful the use of atomic bombs could be. Szilard appeal to the emotions and feelings when he stated “Atomic power will provide the nations with new means of destruction.
Others are in for revenge and keep that on their mind to kill people and sell drugs. Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.
During the Red Scare three groups of people were monitored which were Scientist, people who worked in the government, and in Education. Scientists were monitored because they could share information of nuclear weapons with the USSR. In fact, two people did tell the USSR how to make atomic weapons, and they go executed. The Government was also being monitored because they could share military information with the USSR. One spy was caught sharing information with the USSR and went to jail.
New tactics were used against us, including the “Kamikaze.” These men preferred death before a perceived dishonor. This was the case until the atomic bomb was dropped. President Truman did not come to this decision lightly. Much care was put into the development of this new weapon at the Los Alamos, New Mexico testing facility. Some of our greatest minds designed this weapon, despite its terribly destructive nature.
For example Hale just coming into the story said if he does not find any witches that they will have to agree with his decision. That shows that he is fair and he will not have any past grudges interrupt his work. In the opposite direction though the negative outweighed the positive with many other negative characters. Putnam was also another negative character he wanted Giles corey dead just because of a land dispute. Abigail the most flat out negative, Danforth was a lawful negative, and Parris was a social negative meaning he did not get along with others and liked to do his own thing.
