The book Always Running, is written by Luis T. Rodriguez. This book is about a certain time of the author’s life story. Luis teenage years were the most difficult because he was involved with gangs and surrounded by negativity, he was constantly running away from the police.
“Grief does not change you, it reveals you.” This was precisely the case for the protagonist in "Off the Road" by Daniel Duayne. In an instant we see a man stripped of his socially constructed facade, bare, left vulnerable to the whim of his emotions. In this visceral state, his poignant reflections of the past implore us to evaluate the universal concept of loss, and in doing so, reminds us how facing reality and the totality of its truth, can influence how we internalize trauma, and ultimately make necessary sacrifices, to move forward.
One of the first solutions is the governments should create measures, such as make streetcar that is an energy saving and promote other transit systems, like bicycles or eco-friendly electric cars. In fact, the train and the streetcar are the most eco-friendly vehicles, because these produced lower CO2 emissions than cars and air plane. In Europe, twenty cities in 11countries are using these eco-friendly vehicles. Therefore, European people are actively working on decrease the environmental problems. If Hawaiian people use these eco-friendly vehicles, people will be stress reliever of the traffic congestion as well.
The passage, “Always Running” by Luis J. Rodriguez evokes the tone of indifference. Rodriguez demonstrates these tones through imagery. For example, at the beginning of the passage the narrator, Luis gives us background information about his living situation to set up imagery for the rest of the passage. Then, Luis sets the tone of indifference with this sentence “So without ceremony, we started over the tracks, climbing over discarded market carts and tore-up sofas.” This quote uses the literary device of imagery because the narrator is painting a picture of their environment. He describes his neighborhood without use of any adjectives that express emotion about how he feels about the place. The lack of emotion suggests that they have done this walk before and they have grown indifferent to their surroundings. Another example is at the high point of the story when he and his brother are getting beat up, “I watched the others take turns on my brother, this terror of a brother, and he doubled over, had blood and spew on his shirt, and tears down his face. I wanted to do something, but they held me and I just looked on.” Terror of a brother implies that Rano is a bully himself. Watching this must’ve been hard on Luis, but instead he does nothing. He does not fight back. When Luis just looks on, you can imagine that he just accepts this as something that occurs and they can do nothing about it.
Cars would make the perfect vehicle for a person 's daily commute to work or even a long business trip because of the amazing fuel mileage. They could swerve in and out of traffic with ease and fit into tight spaces a lot either such as parking spaces. Someone that lives a little out in the country may need a truck for certain tasks such as pulling a trailer for farm supplies and other things. It would also help to have the one or two extra seats that a car might not have for those family road trips. With a truck one could have that nice open bed in the back rather than a small trunk. The driver can fit almost anything into the bed of their truck that they would need to haul daily such as a tool box or many other
In Ramon “Tiangus” Perez personal essay the“The Fender-Bender” he writes about two distinct characters, An Anglo driver and a Chicano cop; although they both express the emotion anger and both want to resolve the Fender-bender, the Chicano marks their differences in personalities as he is a prejudice and is wicked as compared to the reasonable and non prejudice. In the moment that Perez puts his car on reverse he accidentally rear ends the company van of the Anglo-Saxon. As the Anglo gets out to see the damage on the van he directs his anger towards Perez and asks him for his license, in which Perez responds with he doesn't have it. His reaction, as stated by Perez, “He scratches his head. He is breathing heavily with fury” (176). The Anglo
I have selected ‘Cross Roads Blues’ written and recorded by Robert Johnson in 1936, one of the best Delta Blues singer, song-writer and musician (May 8, 1911-August 16 1938). Robert Johnson performed ‘Cross Roads Blues’ as a solo piece with his vocal and acoustic slide guitar in the style of Delta Blues, produced by Don Law. This song has become a part of Robert Johnson’s mythology because in this song he is talking about the place where he met the devil and sold his soul to the devil in exchange of his musical talent, even though lyrics do not comprehend those references.
First of all, let’s talk about the environment. I’m sure you all know about greenhouse gases and global warming, so I won’t talk much about that, but you may not know that road vehicles produce 10% of all man-made greenhouse gas emissions. This does include vehicles other than cars like trucks, but Tesla just came out with an electric truck which is faster and can carry more weight than any petrol/diesel truck. Greenhouses gases carbon-dioxide and methane have hit their highest levels in the past 420,000 years, and the extent of arctic sea ice has declined about 10% in the last 30 years. This is all because of global warming, and if we start switching to electric cars, we could make a big difference and maybe, just maybe the effects of global warming will decrease. If they don’t, sea-levels could rise and flood certain areas of the world.

The invention of the automobile has brought more positive and negative effects than any other invention throughout transportation history. Transportations have changed the way people live all over the world. Automobile companies have created numerous jobs all around the globe. Automobiles have affected all aspects of society such as family life, the economy, and even the environment. The advancement of automobiles over time has directly affected the advancement of society as a whole. Society relies intensely and increasing on private motorized transport, vehicles are expected to become safer, more luxurious and powerful. These expectation, however do not take into account of the ensuring consequences such as greater emissions of air pollutants and greater exposure of people to hazardous pollution that causes serious health problems. All the evidence points to the magnitude of these adverse effects on health and to the need to identify solutions that both reduce risks to health and meet the requirement for mobility. This creates a major challenge to the governments, public health organizations, environment authorities and most importantly to the design engineers. Automotive emission related air pollution must be reduced before its effects on health can
Cars technology is not only used as a way of impacting our lives but also to provide a more safe and convenient environment for transportation and even as a way of making profits for various companies. In this paper, I argue that there has been various advancement in car technology and those technologies have impacted the society both positively and negatively. There has been a massive dependency on the fast advancing technology by the society as a way of making people’s lives and those of others comfortable. People are happy about the continued growth of the car technology and the use of these cars in carrying out our day to day activities such as means of transport to work, hospital, school or transportation of goods from various places to our destinations. With the continued advancement in the car technology, the urge to provide efficient, cheap and safer cars cannot be avoided. Currently people live in a very competitive and growing technology thus they are doing whatever they can to ensure they cop up with this advancing technology.

This film tells a terrible story of disillusionment. Based on Richard Yates's magnificent first novel, Revolutionary Road opens in the apparent innocence of the mid-1950s, ushering us into a suburbia of large finned automobiles, clapboard houses and lush, manicured lawns. Two young people meet at a party, get married, have kids and set up house. He has an office job in the city, she does the housework: and both become demoralised by the routine. A life of quiet desperation stretches before them – can they save themselves, or will that desperation just keep getting louder? Either way, it makes for a compulsive and agonising spectacle.
