Forests have long been significant in literature. Dark, enchanted, haunted woods carry a special meaning and signify an important stage in any journey. To enter a forest is to go into the realm of fears, which can be as dangerous as it can be enlightening. Thus enchanted woods present a test to characters’ abilities, a challenge to their courage and, as a result, lead to important inner transformations: if a character enters such a forest, they won’t be the same on leaving it as before they entered. In Chapter 8, Spiders and Flies, Tolkien uses imagery, figurative language and diction to describe a and ominous setting for this chapter in The Hobbit.
In Bradbury’s work of, “The Pedestrian”, a man named Leonard Mead takes a walk in a dystopian 2053 ruled by technology. He doesn’t believe in technology and thinks it does more harm than good to the people in his community. Mead is stopped by a police car for following old traditions of walking and not conforming to their society, then he is taken away to a psychiatric center for treatment. Technology used in an overabundance can be harmful and disruptive to our society, taking away our creativity, free thinking, and originality. A small amount of it can be beneficial to mankind, but too much can hinder it more than help it.
The 1951 original written work by Ray Bradbury (“The Pedestrian”) was, at some point in time, later adapted into a short film. Although both the film and short story shared many of the same elements, there were still several noticeably apparent differences; for one, the film had chosen to introduce an entirely new character into the plot. Serving as a contrasting figure for Mead - a “foil”, of some sorts - Robert “Bob” Stockwell had assisted in providing much more insight in the dystopian world (i.e. experiencing the “outside” world after being inside so long, as was seen in the film). Whereas in the original story, no such insight was provided - Mead was, instead, only just an ordinary individual (unintentionally) caught amidst the confines
You asked the following question: “Under Section 18.104.22.168 for closets and pantries specifies that sprinklers are not required in closets less than 24 sq. ft. with the least dimensions not greater than 3 ft in hotels and motels, therefore it is assumed that sprinklers are required in closets of new apartment buildings as they are not under current hotel and motel category. Appendix D in D.1.1.6 for new apartment buildings specifies that closets less than 12 sq. ft. in area in individual dwelling units shall not be required to be sprinklered. How is this addressed?”
District 12 and District 11 have a lot of differences. The fence is district 12 is old and not maintained. While the fence is District 11 is strong with barbed wire and metal plates, so you are not able to escape. “Towering at least thirty-five feet in the air”. P.55.
Pope Urban II is without a doubt the reason why the The First Crusades started. It was through his deliberate actions and monumental speech that a spark was created and would end up leading to the crusades. His words and authoritative position within the Church are also important to recognize for they had a huge influence on the attitudes and direction that The First Crusades took. The impact of this speech is especially relevant when it comes to Stephen the Count of Blois and Chartres who took the words of Urban and put them into action. A letter from Stephen to his wife, Adele, helps give an idea as to the value that Stephen held in respects to the Pope’s speech where the Stephens Actions are reasoned through the words of the Urban II.
In American history, there have been few disastrous attacks against the country that have caused masses of casualties and chaos throughout the United States. On Sunday, December seventh, 1941, around eight o’clock in the morning, a bombing occurred from Japan at the American naval base, called Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii. Despite various arguments against this attack occurring at all prior to it, the Japanese pulled through and surprised America and its soldiers with an intent to destroy the Pacific Fleet. There were two thousand fatalities and one thousand people injured, including sixty-eight civilians. The attack on Pearl Harbor occurred due to many decades of tension between Japan and the United States.
Once upon a time in a land far-far away there lived an element named oxygen. He has an interesting name which comes from the greek words oxy and genes, which means acid former. Two other men discovered oxygen before Joseph Priestly. One man was named Cornelius Drebbel. He was the first to discover it in 1608 but failed to recognize the gas as oxygen.
Women in the Puritan Society The Puritan life was extremely different than the world today. Men were superior to women in the Puritan society. Women were not only treated different in community matters, but in marriages too. Wives were expected to care for their children and their husbands (Deering). Puritan women were treated poorly and unequally compared to the Puritan men.

Barbara Kingsolver does a wonderful job with incorporating literary devices into her novel. These literary devices help the reader to experience the words written on the page and it allows the reader to think that they are actually living the story. One major literary device that Kingsolver uses throughout the book to show her ideas to the reader is imagery. “Her dark hair is tied in a ragged lace handkerchief, and her curved jawbone is lit with large, false-pearl earrings, as if these headlamps from another world might show the way.” (pg 5) When I hear these words, I am able to paint a picture inside of my head of Orleana Price.
When Humans Die, Earth Will Seldom Notice It is a well known fact that Man was nature’s creation, while technology was that Man’s own. Ray Bradbury speaks on what he thinks of it in his short story: “There Will Come Soft Rains”. Bradbury lets his readers identify with the human qualities presented in what Man has made to encourage empathy toward his ‘main character’. However, he also presents the impossibility of replicating certain aspects of human life with the cold and calculated ways already established at a machine’s core.
