In chapter 8, from page 71 to page 85. Krakauer tells the story of Gene Rosellini, John Waterman, Carl McCun, and Everett Ruess. He does this to show similarities among them and Chris, but he only goes off tangent. In chapter 1, Krakauer starts out by stating, “Jim Gallien had driven four miles out of Fairbanks when he spotted the hitchhiker standing in the snow beside the road…” This allows the reader a better chance at understanding what is happening.
Falker. To start off, Mr. Falker always helps Tricia, and Dog always helps Magpie because they are struggling. To explain, Mr. Falker banishes the bullies from Tricia.

On the flip side, Dog helps by bringing Magpie to his cave to make her feel safe.
Corgis, Pomeranians, Saint Bernards, and Labrador Retrievers. What do all of these furry friends have in common? They can all be a part of a group known as therapy dogs.

For those Buffalonians who are old enough to remember it, the Blizzard of 1977 is a memory that has been seared into their consciousness. January 28th 1977, began as a normal day for the city of Buffalo, but by twelve noon the wind picked up, snow began to fall, and visibility became dangerously limited. As the wind began to intensify out of the west and sweep across the frozen wasteland of Lake Erie, it carried with it the lightly packed snow that had blanketed the frozen lake. An event of historical proportions was beginning to unfold in rapid time right in front of people’s eyes. Accumulating more and more snow as the wind moved eastward, the wind was carrying so much snow that it created white out conditions in the city and surrounding area.
The author also heavily describes the main character’s interactions with the wolf. He touches the “cold and perfect teeth” and puts his hands upon it’s “bloodied forehead.” By stating these tangible aspects of the main character’s experience with the wolf, it conveys that he is in awe of this creature, symbolizing the impact the wolf had on him.
There are plenty examples of this in the story The Time of the Wolves by Marcia Muller. Sensory details include sight, sound, touch , taste, and smell. These are crucial in creating a believable and genuine setting which is important because it needs to fascinate the reader in order to hold their interest and for them to better visualize. Since we experience the world using our five senses, it is only natural that in order to immerse oneself into a story, we need to be able to experience that world using our five senses as well. A great use of the sensory detail of sight in the story is when describing the physical traits of Sarah as shown in the following quote, “Her dark hair hung loose about her shoulders; she wore a muslin dress dyed the rich brown of walnut bark.
Quarterly Writing Assessment I would like to explain a theme from two short stories, the most dangerous game and also Harrison Bergeron. One of the main themes out of these stories is pursuit of perfection. I chose this theme because it a very informative theme in these stories. I also chose these stories because I found most examples so I can further explain this theme. I can also further explain another theme that is the challenging of authority and tradition between the stories Harrison Bergeron and the last dog.
Their way of delivering was very efficient since they uploaded the video to a much streamed network. A video is a great way of showing the audience not only with words, but visually how extended the problem is or might get bigger in the future. We notice they use ethos (i.e. use of a sad rhythm song) all through the video. Focusing mainly on the sad faces of the animals and even slowing down the video so we can visualize how they might be feeling and how great we would feel if we helped
Halting by Woods on A Snowy Evening is one of the best lyrics by Robert Frost. This sonnet was distributed in 1923 at New Hampshire. Once in a while the writer gets passionate reaction to a specific circumstance. In this way, he communicates his craving for rearing. Ice himself is a speaker in normal route, in common beat and discourse.
This is when he became acquainted to Tuesday, a golden retriever service dog. Tuesday helped Montalvan tremendously because she was able to adjust to his mood swings. She had the ability to calm him down if he were ever to start acting violently. Wall Street Journal called Tuesday “a seeing eye dog for the mind” when they discovered what she had done. This is just one of the many examples Donald Altschiller states in this book that prove how amazing the human-animal bond can be.
The other type of river that resulted because of glaciation is the meandering river. Wisconsin has such a flat terrain where the glacier used to lie, that meandering rivers are very common. These rivers are characterized by their curviness, which sometimes curve so much that they form oxbow lakes: a u-shaped body of water (Ice age geology, n.d.). Meandering rivers and oxbow lakes are pictured

New England is home to some of the harshest winters. In the winter, most species either move away for the winter or hibernate because their habitat usually frozen over. After observing what happens during these winters, I’ve wondered what happens to frogs. Do they hibernate or do they somehow move away for the winter or do they somehow stay alive under the ice in lakes and ponds? I decided to research frogs in New England and see what happens to them in the winter.
The author of “Therapy Animal Information” states, “Dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, domesticated rats, horses, donkeys, llamas, alpacas, pot-bellied pigs and birds can all be used in therapy animal work” (7). This statement was astounding to me. The power animals can have on humans has been proven to heal and strengthen so many. The steps to become any type of therapy animal relies on the type of work one wishes to do with their pet. The process may seem long and tiring but, the outcome is well worth
