Exploring Psychology by David G Myers (2014) says that a psychological disorder is a syndrome marked by a “clinically significant disturbance in an individual’s cognition, emotion regulation, or behavior” (American Psychiatric Association 2013)(p. 506).

The short story “What Happened During the Ice Storm” utilizes two major literary elements; one of which expresses a current social issue. The author, Jim Heynen, employes allegory and imagery to represent charity and self-sacrifice. Imagery is often used in this short story to create a somber tone, for instance “most animals were safe…But not the pheasants” and ”The boys stood still in the icy rain. Their breath came out in slow puffs of steam.” The boys and the pheasants are allegorical representations: The pheasants represent someone who is in need, and consequently, the boys using their coats to warm the pheasants represents the choice self-sacrifice over self-preservation. The purpose of the short story is to make the reader ask themselves
The most compelling theory is that Ötzi was assassinated for his high position of power with in his clan. After thorough investigation of the site where Ötzi was discovered (Ötztal Alps) and analysis of the corps historians can infer that the most compelling theory for the death of the iceman is that he was assassinated as part of a power play with in his own clan. This theory is supported by many pieces of evidence. One of these is, the finding of a copper axe near the iceman’s death site and suggesting that the iceman was quite powerful with in his clan. Another supporting piece of evidence is the fact that the arrow was taken out of the iceman’s back, this supports the theory that his attacker did not want to be identified and the fact that
(3 marks) The mother was disapproving of the father and the child’s “romping”, playing noisily and boisterously around in the kitchen. Her “countenance/ Could not unfrown itself”(7-8), which means she was frowning the whole time. Her facial expression, her posture,
heart was heavy” (107) and as if he “. . . was doing it grudgingly” (107). The initial feelings of constant benevolence gradually vanished. As much as his father was selfish enough to take his rations, he should have been selfish enough to keep his provisions for
In the seventh paragraph, 98% of Alexie’s sentences started with the word “I”. This emphasized all that he had done, everything he did to become a writer. It showed how persistent he was and how he had refused to give up. In most of these sentences the “I” was followed by “read”. This shows the extent of how much reading he did; how committed he was to reading.
“He told me all this very much later, but I’ve put it down here with the idea of exploding those first wild rumors about his antecedents, which weren’t even faintly true. Moreover he told it to me at a time of confusion, when I had reached the point of believing everything and nothing about him. So I take advantage of this short halt, while
A blow to the head, a wound on the hand, and an arrow to the shoulder. These 3 key evidences show that Otzi the Iceman was assassinated. X-rays show that there is an arrowhead in his shoulder. This caused a blood clot that could have helped Otzi’s death. There was also damage to the head. The arrow shaft was taken out of the shoulder, this proves that the assassinator was not far from Otzi’s body. He may have also fought in hand to hand combat. To prove this theory Otzi’s body has a wound on his hand.

“A mother 's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” The wise words of Agatha Christie ring true for many across the world; the unconditional love a mother holds for her child. An instinct so powerful and caring, it does not allow for any interference or hindrance. The universal knowledge and strength of a mother can become, ironically, an element that provides difficulties in many relationships. The love between a mother and daughter is eternally enchanting and frustrating, invigorating and challenging. Mothers serve as a role model and example to their daughters, providing insight and guidance in every walk of life. Despite the stress many mother-daughter relationships endure, a mother’s advice is imperative. Through examining Amy Tan’s book The Joy Luck Club, Sandhya Shetty’s painting Mother and Daughter, and “Sonnets are full of love, and this is my tome” by Christina Rossetti, the power of a mother’s influence is evident. As the prominence of a mother’s wisdom grows, a daughter’s perspective will transform by understanding her relationships and situations.
