Mr. Thelaw’s conduct would likely be considered extreme and outrageous when he manipulated Ms. Smartpants emotions in front of the class. Courts have reasoned that a defendant cannot deliberately attempt to manipulate the emotions of a plaintiff, for a perceived advantage over a plaintiff who is susceptible to emotional distress.

This magazine article targets students and parents with the purpose of preventing any more school shootings. They begin by discussing how important it is to bring awareness about mental health.

The “unwind” doesn’t necessarily die, rather his/her body parts are put up for sale, and a bit of the unwind’s consciousness gets put into each part. In Henry Slesar’s “Examination Day” children at the age of twelve take a test to determine their intelligence. The catch is though, and the children don’t know this, the government take away people who are smarter than they like to be and they’re presumably killed. Lev from “Unwind” and Dickie from “Examination Day” are both blinded by what is actually about to happen to them, unlike Connor from “Unwind”. Lev had Connor, Pastor Dan and Marcus to help him realize what was happening to him, but Dickie couldn’t get help from anyone because of the truth serum.

(‘Sheesh, I know it’s fun to spend time with friends, but I’d be letting myself and everyone else down if I didn’t show up for the tournament.’) This used to drive me mad, but after I went off to Harvard (and Amy correctly chose my parents’ alma mater), I decided it was all too ridiculous to think about. That my parents, two child psychologists, chose this particular public form of passive-aggressiveness toward their child was not just fucked up but also stupid and weird and kind of hilarious. So be it.” (47 Flynn)
High levels of criminal and anti-social behaviour, may provide young men with alternative claims to power, however it can simultaneously exacerbate the levels of social exclusion experienced by their communities. It is not unusual for residents from Limerick's estates to experience discrimination when it comes to applying for work, school places and grinds.

Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold went on a school shooting spree in Littleton, Colorado. Their catch phrase became, “Do you believe in God?” (Johnson, 2012). Multiple students were asked this simple question and killed if they answered yes.

I want to ask you a question, what do you think would happen if the school board took away extracurricular sports like football, soccer, and softball to save money? So today I will explain the pros and cons of if the school board took away all sports to save money. I would be against this because it would cause negative effects. Even though there is negative effects there can also be positive effects as well. So there is both positive and negative effects to this and I’m and going to explain both of the sides.
