argued in her opening statement Tuesday that Kohr was negligent, and said his pre-existing condition caused his problems” (Associated Press 1). This means Kohr Crohn’s disease was a long term, and extensive problem that started before the spilled coffee. Also he was negligent, because he spilled the coffee, and did not take responsibility for his own actions. The way Kohr believed his injuries would be justified was by filing a lawsuit, and seeking $750,000 dollars. Crohn’s disease was already a serious condition for Kohr over time even if they coffee didn’t spill on him he would eventually need surgery.
Although many states made it illegal for minors to use tanning salons, and President Obama created a 10% tax on tanning, young people flock to the salons yearning for a bronze complexion. Call to Action: Indoor tanning is dangerous and unhealthy. The Indoor Tanning Association even warns consumers of the risks when using these beds, so why do we still use them? Is it a self-esteem issue or just refusal to see the truth in the danger that tanning is just as bad or worse than smoking and leads to cancer which is deadly? Every time you lay in a tanning bed, you are volunteering your body to get
JonBenet Ramsey a 6-year old pageant queen. Daughter of John Bennett, a wealthey business man, and her mother, Patricia Ramsey, a socialite. JonBenet, youngest of the Ramsey family, was horrendously murdered between the nights of December 25, 1996 to December 26, 1996. A ransom note was left on the stairs of their Colorado home. Patsy woke up and went down stairs to make coffee but instead found the ransom not on the staircase.
Why or why not? Yes I agree with the judge decision, since there was a similar case where the judge found a defendant negligent when sulphuric acid in a defective jug broke and caused acid to pour over the consumer, resulting injury and damages to her furniture and floors of her home. The judge used the strict product liability theory in the case of Mabee V. Sutliff & Case CO., INC. 1-The Product was defective when sold. Mrs. Mabee ordered two-one gallon glass jugs of sulphuric acid, which were delivered to her front door. While Mrs. Mabee carried the jugs from the front door toward the back of the house, one of the jugs shattered and spilled on her body and on the dining room floor and furniture, causing severe damage.
The McDonalds coffee case and the case in Class Action against Argo have similarities and differences. Not only that, they both can relate to mass legal knowledge and the role of mass legal knowledge for a generalized public. To start, a shorten version of each case. The coffee case, Stella Liebeck had suffered from “third degree burns” (pg.186) from spilling hot coffee that she had purchased from McDonalds. The Argo case, a lawsuit about injuries caused by a defective automobile, the Meridian.
Huttman uses figurative language and dialogue to create a feeling of depression in the essay “A Crime of Compassion.” Huttman use similes and metaphors to get across how sick Mac was, and how the situation was. For example, Barbara said “When Mac wasted away to a 60-pound skeleton kept alive by liquid food poured down a tube.” This example shows how sick Mac was by telling us that he only weighed 60 pounds and that he couldn’t eat so they had to pour liquid food down a tube. Another example is when Barbara, said “macho cop who walked into the hospital with 32 pounds of attack equipment.” Mac was a strong man, but then all of a sudden he was diagnosed with lung cancer. His equipment weighed about half of what he weighed when he passed away.
The author chose a protagonist who specifically didn’t grasp the whole meaning of this arrest or the greater significance with the societal upheaval of this period of time. Lily wonders “why couldn’t [Rosaleen] just apologize” about dumping the snuff juice on Franklin Posey (Bees 46). While she does admit that what the men did was horrible, wanting “those men to die in hell begging for ice water,” she still hasn’t fully grasped the extent of what Rosaleen’s actions mean in terms of her rebellion. From Rosaleen’s point of view, the events would have taken on an additional meaning of defiance that Lily doesn’t quite understand. Lily’s ignorance, however, is important to the story as a whole.
Disobedience, the so-called “original vitrue” by Oscar Wilde, stimulates change. Whether this change is for the better or not can be left to the eye of the beholder, but it would be difficult to argue that disobedience does not stimulate change, regardless of the act of disobedience. Even an act of disobedience that only one person knows about can affect the overall reality. Recently, I watched a movie in which the female protagonist would take a paper every day without paying for it because the shop sold coffee for double its worth, as a sort of defiance against “the Man”, as she calls the shop. Although nobody else realized she would do so, it changed who she was as a person.
After all this I decided to go home and watch T.V., anything but a murder based show. In the end, Ms. White brutally murdered Jim Mustard. She hit him multiple times in the head with a candlestick until death. She ended up facing 67 years in prison for her crime. From now on, on every August 1, I take the day off and do nothing.
Then Ruth blamed her insurance businessmen named Judd Gray and the police then tracked him down, and he said that Ruth asked him to bring poisoned whiskey, he blamed it all on her. Once the evidence somewhat added up Ruth and Grey were sent to the electric chair. This story relates to Methyl Alcohol because what this poison does is “… led[s] to headaches, dizziness, nausea, a staggering lack of coordination, confusion, and finally overpowering need to seep” (162). Meaning that if Ruth killed her husband with this poison that explains why her husband was on the bed and as methyl also does is cause internal damage, which explains the bleeding from the
