The workman has used a private car for the purpose of the defendant’s business on other occasion and had never been told not to use a private car for those purposes. The plantiff contended that the workman was acting acting within the scope of his authority and within the course of employment and hence the defendants were held liable for damages. The defendants contended that by taking a private car instead of a lorry, which he was instructed to take, the workman had changed the journey from authorized to an unauthorized journey.

The guilt that ensued after the Mum's death also majorly affected the twins. Each thought that they had caused their Mums death in different ways, whether it was something they said or something they did the last time they saw her.

The choice of handgun as a weapon suggests Gatsby's shady past, but it is symbolic that it is his love affair, not his business life, that kills Gatsby in the
In this quote, the Wilson’s car fully broke down and they are going to need to fix it rather than just put less weight. So, Tom comes to the rescue by saying, “You take out some of that stuff in the truck an’ then all you folks but me an the preacher get a move on.” (pg 228) This quote shows that Tom helping people other than his family and in a way of affecting their life. It shows this by Tom helping them with the car, earlier in the book he may not have done this but now that he understands that if he just leaves them with a broken car, they will be in very big trouble since they don’t know how to fix a car.

Miles finds the quote circled in her water-damaged copy of the biography where in the margin she had
While there are many ways to interpret the art film Still Life by Lillian Wang, I infer that the son died in a car accident at the father’s hands. This film violates many classical storytelling techniques to demonstrate how death affects those who live with their memory. Three especially impactful techniques are nonlinear plot manipulation, loose causality and calculated plot gaps. Nonlinear plot manipulation works in two key ways to further the narrative and thematic meaning of this film. First, by commenting on the father’s subjective reality as his mental state suffers post-tragedy.
