He later arrives at a creek is familiar with and remembers the danger of the hidden springs that ran off from the hillside which left pools of water nearly three feet deep, covered by a thin sheet of ice hidden under the snowy ground. At this point, the man is very concerned about accidently falling into one of these pools. "And to get his feet wet in such a temperature meant trouble and danger." (113) Getting wet would only delay him, "at the very least it meant delay, for he would be forced to stop and build a fire...." (113) Every time he thought he came across a frozen pool, he would force the dog to go first to see if it is safe or not. At this point and time, he begins to get more and more nervous about the
When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die. Odysseus didn 't even ask his crew whether they should do it or not because Odysseus made it seem like their opinion wasn’t important and didn 't matter. In the story, it says “Why not take these cheeses...Yet I refused, I wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer” (pg 818 L198-199). Odysseus deserved to return home from his journey after 20 years because it was mostly his fault. If Odysseus had told his crew about everything like why not to eat the cattle or to not open the bag of the unfavorable winds, his journey wouldn 't have taken 20 years.

Another form of violence was Ryker cutting Starrett’s fences, giving the message that he wanted him off of his homestead. Shane just repaired the fences and they ignored the threats. This was a major theme of violence to get a point across in many parts of the west, leading to large disputes. Many of these disputes were settled because of personal issues, which should have been legal issues but the law was too far away to enforce. The movie quotes that “the law is three days from here” indicating that they would not be able to go get a government official to settle a dispute for them, leaving them to their own devices to settle any conflicts.
The two main ways that these two groups work together is through deployed training and assisting of local security forces, particularly in Afghanistan and through joint military exercises around the world. Although the exact number is not known, there are currently about 17,000 NATO troops in Afghanistan with about 11,000 of these being US troops and a majority of that number, US Army soldiers. US soldiers and NATO troops are partnered together in the joint operation known as Resolute Support. Together, both groups utilize the principles of joint operations such as security, legitimacy, restraint, perseverance, and unity of command in order to successfully training Afghan security forces for the eventual total withdrawal of US and NATO forces from Afghanistan. Other than in Afghanistan, the US Army and NATO forces are currently operating together in military exercises in the Central and Eastern European countries of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
In Jack London 's "To Build a Fire," London reveals how a man walks through a tough winter in one of the many forests found in Yukon, Alaska. Facing a myriad amount of obstacles along the way; he depends on how he should tackle his problems when they appear during his journey instead of thinking ahead rationally and beyond the obvious. Before the nameless man leaves off to his harsh expedition he was forewarned by an elderly that “no man must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty below"(London). The man decides to ignore the elders warning and continues his path. If he would of listened to the wise man, he would have avoided all the sticky situations that would soon come his way and ultimately lead him to his demise.
The first reason I won’t re-enlist is the harsh weather. “Why are we sent here to starve and freeze?”(Waldo 151) I overheard Dr.Waldo say. The terribly cold weather is causing me to not want to re-enlist because I want to fight on the battlefield and not die from this terrible weather, and it's even colder because we don't have any shoes and very little clothing. My second reason to not re-enlist is the smallpox
They came back to Donner Lake, the place the rest of the group was waiting, and it soon became evident that the party was stranded by the heavy snow. Luckily, timber was abundant, and they built three cabins to shelter themselves as they waited in hope that the snow would melt. The other group that had waited with George Donner were also trapped in the heavy snow, and built hasty shelters from tree branches and hides. Meanwhile, James Reed, the man that the Donner party had banished, along with William McCutchen, came to rescue their companions, but could not get past the snow, so they went back to Sutter’s Fort. As the conditions grew worse for the Donner Party, they built more cabins, but their animals wandered off, and they were left with hardly anything to eat, including “family pets, bones, twigs, a concoction described as "glue," strings and, eventually, human remains” (news.discovery.com).
In Jack London 's "To Build a Fire," he reveals how a man goes through a harsh winter in the forest facing multiple obstacles along the way. He has to depend on what he thinks he should do when problems arise instead of thinking intuitively and beyond the obvious. Before the unnamed man left on his expedition he was warned by an old timer "that no man must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty below" (London 238). If the man would have listened to the old timer in the beginning of the story he would have never had to be in any of the situations. But because the man likes to think for himself, it costs him his life.
