Lone wolf terrorist are identified as a single person, who seek to or carry out attacks individually, are not associated with organized groups (Hamm & Spaaij, 2015). These individuals pose significant threats to the world because they are both unpredictable in their actions and they operate entirely alone. Scholars and policy-makers agree that lone world terrorist attacks are posing large threats, as well as increasing financial, human, and social costs (Danzell & Montanez). It is because they remain under the radar, preform and increasing number of attacks and are hard to identify that law enforcement and government officials have difficulty deterring attacks by such individuals.
The movie “One flew over the cuckoo’s nest” gives an inside look into the life of a patient living in a mental institution; helping to give a new definition of mental illnesses. From a medical standpoint, determinants of mental illness are considered to be internal; physically and in the mind, while they are seen as external; in the environment or the person’s social situation, from a sociological perspective (Stockton, 2014). Additionally, the movie also explores the idea of power relations that exist between an authorized person (Nurse Ratched) and a patient and further looks into the punishment a deviant actor receives (ie. McMurphy contesting Nurse Ratched). One of the sociological themes that I have observed is conformity.

During the first half of the 20th century, the Japanese empire was at the peak of its power. Starting form 1910 up until 1945, the end WWII, Korea was being held by Japan as a colony. During this time, Japan and China entered The Second Sino-Japanese War that stared in 1937 and ended with Japanese surrender in 1945.

I am going to write about two pieces of written work, describing their similarities and differences. The first one is "Old Ben". It is a farmland story showing "Old Ben", an unusually friendly snake, finding a new life with a young farmer. The young man was warm and very much fond of the snake despite the snake's appearance. He lived on the farm with the fellow, but Old Ben (the snake) disappeared, unknown at the end of the story.
“Researches believe domestic lone wolf terrorists are fundamentally different than organized international terrorist groups” (). Lone wolf terrorists rarely carry out their criminal acts because of politics alone, but find their motivation through personal grievances, disputes, or hateful ideology. Furthermore, unlike international terrorists, lone wolf terrorists have a history of some sort of mental health issue. Law enforcement agencies believe that lone terrorist have more in common with apolitical mass murders than organized terrorist cells, because their attacks tend to be less effective and deadly than coordinated attacks by organized terrorists groups (). Unlike international terrorists organizations, lone terrorist conduct their violence in a place they are familiar with.
Weather in literature is often used to symbolize the mood or mental state in which a character experiences. For example, rain is commonly associated with sadness. As it is commonly identified, fog is a cloudy element of weather that affects one’s ability to see clearly, however, it is also used in literature to represent a character’s lack of clarity. Throughout One Who Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, the motif of fog is used to represent the mental instability and confusion Bromden experiences under Nurse Ratched’s ward. As the story progresses and Bromden gains confidence, the fog diminishes and he is able to overcome the Big Nurse.
In The Parent Trap: How Teens Lost the Ability to Socialize, Clive Thompson argues that the accusation that teenagers spend too much time socializing online than in real life, is at the fault of the parents, via the mindset that youth should not hang around each other alone and that their after school lives should be filled with tasks that will get them into
The Mirriam-Webster Dictionary defines sane as having a healthy or sound mind however no one could possibly know what it means to be sane. Some people would consider, that to be sane means to be normal, but there really is no such thing as normal. Mostly everyone has thoughts and emotions in the world and they can differ from person to person.
