Blake Mcmahon and Adam Lowther look back to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, describe the destruction the bombing had caused, and acknowledge people’s concern regarding the danger of nuclear weapons. They counter the assumption of nuclear danger by asserting that if a country launch nuclear weapons it will spark deadly response from other nations. The nuclear characteristic of deterrent, they argued, is exemplified in the Cold War, in which the United States and the Soviet Union hindered themselves from the brink of war due to the horrific possibility of a nuclear war. Mcmahon and Lowther claim that nuclear weapons are still essential deterrents for the United States against countries that are developing nuclear weapons
For this project I chose a stuffed panda, stuffed bear, pillow, and a blanket. These four items are identical by material-- soft. I’ve chosen these four items because they hold a close meaning to my heart but I do not need nor want them anymore. Two of these objects were made by hand the other two were bought. First, the stuffed panda has two black arms, two black legs, one black ear, the other is read, and two black eyes.
The similarities of these disasters were very similar with the cost and the damage it had done. Hurricane Katrina cost was $108 million dollars and the oil spill was $4 to $5 billion dollars. During these both disasters, many people died from the oil spill explosion and the huge hurricane. The hurricane destroyed 300,000 homes, people were out of power, and it took weeks for it to come back on. The oil spilled had damaged the short lines, the spill covered miles, and the hurricane flooded over cities.
Mental Floss states, “The novella is ranked as the fifth most frequently challenged piece of literature on the American Library Association’s list of 100 Most Banned of Challenged Book between 2000 and 2009.” The book, “Of Mice and Men,” is from the point of view through a struggling man’s viewpoint and a mentally challenged man’s viewpoint during the Great Depression. Lennie is a troublemaker for George, and sometimes George has to make big decisions about so of his priorities throughout his life. I believe George did do the right thing by killing Lennie himself because George would rather have Lennie die with him doing it rather than anyone else, George knew he would act up again if he let him come with him, and George believes it was the best choice to make in the situation. Some people believe that George had another way out.
Fusing the Ideologies of Monomaternalism Introduction Shelley Park seeks to develop “an alternative to the ideology of monomaternalism that would permit young children to recognize multiple mothers for themselves” (120). In Park’s argument, she emphasizes the importance to try to see the world from a child’s point of view. Her reasoning behind this being that too often adults impose their reality on the child, thus rendering the child from establishing a reality of their own. In the “Fusion Cuisine” episode of the Cartoon Network show Steven Universe, the show is told from the child, Steven’s, point of view which allows the viewer to get a sense of what it would look like if a child was in total control of creating their own reality. Through Steven, it is apparent that an alternative ideology to monomaternalism is a possibility if adults listen to what the child has to say rather than imposing their own ideology upon the child.
“‘Your father’s right, she said. Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”’ (Lee 119).
