Horton Hatches the Egg “I mean what I said and I said what I meant… An elephant’s faithful One hundred per cent!” (Seuss 11) . Going through a terrible storm, a frosty winter, humiliated by his friends, and sent to a circus- despite the disastrous circumstances he encountered, just as he promised, Horton the elephant protected Mayzie the bird’s egg. Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr.Seuss is widely read aloud by parents and teachers, for its important qualities of faith and patience it displays. However, among nuclear families with adopted children, it may be controversial of whether the book is to be read to their children or not, for the story creates a strong sense of connection to the topic of adoption. The story starts off with Mayzie, a lazy bird, complaining of how weary she is, having to stay at her nest all day to warm her egg up.
As they arrived, Odysseus saw a cave and described the owner of the lair as a huge, manly creature who pastured his flocks by himself, lived apart from others, and knew no law. This represents uncivilization in Monsters because civilized beings socialized with friends and family and lived according to the law; opposingly, the Cyclopes did the exact opposite of that. Odysseus ordered some of his men to stay on the ship and told 12 of his best men to come with him to the cave. They then arrived at the cave of the Polyphemus, a Cyclops, and saw that he lived with his lambs and their kids. This represents uncivilization in Monsters because civilized beings did not live in a cave

Then, we have Babar the Elephant who lives a carefree life until his mother is killed by hunters sacrificing herself for the herd’s safety. As the story continues young Babar is faced with the same situation and brave like his mother risk his life to save the herd as well. Amazingly, he 's not murdered only separated from his family so and learns to survive on his own. Personally, I think it’s sad how Elephants are killed by polluters for their tusks. In King Leopold’s Ghost, he used his power to rob Africa of its natural wealth which included ivory and many other resources.

However, since the senses are susceptible to personal interpretation, they are therefore potentially unreliable sources of data. If one is able of rationally thinking through the information that they perceive, then they are more likely to make accurate assumptions. However, if one is highly emotive, they may not be able to separate the emotion from the data they perceive,

And the sea lion jumped onto the circular box and clapped his fins together again... For what seemed to be the hundredth time in a row... “What on Earth am I doing here? Out of all the acts I could have come to see, why this one?” Mark Hampton was bored. He thought that his relationship with his boss was good enough not to have to be sent to review “Zantaffio’s Great Animal Circus”, the one that in its greatest years had people coming from all five continents, to watch the massive elephants riding a bike, the wonderful penguins walking on tightropes and the brown bears in tutus ballet dancing. But the major attraction was none of these. No act could be compared to that of the apes, the chimpanzee violinists, the piano playing orang-utan
Torture may not necessarily guarantee accurate or reliable information at the expense of a potentially innocent person. There is also the possibility of not knowing whether you have been given false information which is not worth turning your back on ethics and
Marsh Mokhtari is a man who wears quite a few hats. Television host, actor, producer, even master distiller, Marsh has no shortage of talents to add to a resume. In recent years, one of his most inspiring roles is that of conservationist, but to say it’s just an act is a disservice to him and his family. A documentary is on the way that is sure to make anyone take a long look at the black market trade of endangered species and their parts. Project Unicorn, despite the fanciful title, is a brutally honest view on rhinoceros poaching.
Perspective is the way people inspect, understand and interpret the world. Each person has a different point of view since they have different background, knowledge and experience. Perspective cannot affect the truth since fact is stronger than opinion. Truth can change perspective because when people realize that their belief is different from the fact, their perspective changes. Literatures, especially creative writings possess moments when the truth changes perspective.

July 26. 2006, a four year old elephant named Benjamin was swimming in a pond on a “break” and didn’t obey when he was called to get out, instead he swam the other direction. The trainer then jumped into the pond with a bullhook and swam after Benjamin, the elephant had a heart attack and died. According to an official USDA Report, the trainer’s use of the bull hook “created behavioral stress and trauma which precipitated in the physical harm and ultimate death of the animal.” Bullhooks, poor conditions, endless performance, and premature deaths are all things that go on under the big top.
