In the teleplay, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” by Rod Serling, the community wanted to know the real culprit of this unnatural power outage, and they did everything to seek the answer. In news article “The Rosewood Massacre of 1923” by Emily Upton, a white woman claimed that a black man assaulted her which lead to a chaotic community. The riveting teleplay and news article both had the elements of an accusation and a metamorphoses. In the teleplay, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street,” it starts with accusation and scapegoat and developing into metamorphosis. “Don: What about Charlie?
California’s environment Ecology of Fear by Mike Davis gives us a very real and perhaps over the top view at the trouble California’s environment is in but they provide interesting parallels to other issues in California. Arguments provided in Ecology of Fear are very fascinating for example is theory that Los Angeles being destroyed could be a metaphor to humans actually destroying the city and state. Mike Davis describes in his book how a woman describes animals like cougars as “serial killers” who’s numbers should be cut down but do not stop living or walking through their territory. Also he goes into detail about how humans put themselves in harms way by living in areas notorious for wildfire and earthquakes, and moving into territories
Upton Sinclair’s literature influenced people into getting help from the government. “The book's horrific description of conditions in the meatpacking industry led to a public outcry, and helped promote the passage of the Meat Inspection Act (1906) and the Food and Drugs Act (the Wiley Act) (1906)” (Badertscher). The outcry that occurred partially because of The Jungle influenced people to get the problem solved by the government. America’s rallying against the meat-packing industry had a gargantuan role in creating the Pure Food and Drug Act. A group that was knowledgeable of the effects certain chemicals have on food was appointed to regulating the standards of the meat-packing industry.
This is very uncommon in the present day, but in Rod Serling’s “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”, this was their reality. In the 1960’s version, it was about a group of neighbors constantly being scapegoated for being part of an “alien invasion” into their neighborhood due to a recent power outage. In the 2003 version the same thing happened except they were being blamed for being a terrorist. Even though both films were made in completely different time periods they had the same message. “Fear of the unknown can cause people to turn on each other” To begin with, the neighbors in the 1960’s version of “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” stared off as a beautiful normal day, but within only a few hours, the whole street went to chaos, fear, and distrust.
The essay “The Damnation of Canyon,” by Edward Abbey, channels the emotional impact that the damming of a canyon river can have on a person. By telling this story the author utilizes many different rhetorical strategies that include personification, visual imagery, and first-person narration, all to help convey his point on why the commercialization and industrialism of nature should be avoided and stopped. He not only points out the wrong in the situation, but Abbey also gives a solution to the problem to better the canyon for all people. He tells of how many of the environmental pollution, habitat loss, and commercialization could be fixed if people stopped trying to make the canyon better for some people, the rich, and just let it be enjoyed by those who want to see its natural beauty. The fastest solution to this problem is to get rid of the damn and let the river run its course.
He comforted America with his sympathetic words, but also managed to bring forth fear to the terrorist. His speech that was broadcasted to the entire world highlighted everything America needed at this time of grief, and will forever be remembered. In the introduction of Bush’s speech, he describes the despicable acts of terror our country witnessed that day. Bush shows his compassion for those affected by the attacks. He knew he could not repair what had been done, but he knew we could fight back.
Scientist made this discovery many years ago, and it is a continued practice. But my problem is that anything could go wrong, and just one child being harmed by these vaccines is enough to convince me not to support them. As Muslims, we are strong disbelievers in vaccinations because they can harm our babies. The essay is very good though in my honest opinion. Delgado essay suggest that he is attempting to make a logical appeal by using various examples of some things we disbelieve and providing statistics to said disbelieved scientific content.
In the beginning, the disease did not severely harm the infected; it just brought them closer together. The infected did not injure anyone nor did they speak. Towards the end of the story is when the disease took its toll on the infected and turned them into monsters. The infected patients started attacking their loved ones and friends and ended up running the uninfected people out of the country. The La Negura disease made the infected patients the monster of story turning them into zombies and causing terror in Port Au Prince.
I am going to write an essay about the “Super Prison”, Alcatraz. As you may know, the government made a prohibition to ban all alcohol. That didn’t workout so well for the rest of the world. The gangsters and the thieves and all of the other bad guys, either started making the crops to make alcohol, or they bought it from other places/countries. They became unstoppable, and everybody was afraid of them.
Thus in an attempt to defeat the Japanese, the government developed distinct racial stereotypes of their enemy. Propaganda was published across the country, a key example of this being the cartoon ‘Popeye: Scrap the Japs’ . The audience, American people during World War II, see the Japanese to be portrayed with buckteeth and thick glasses (2:32). This typical characterization of the Japanese was extremely common. The cartoon also directly refers to the yellow peril of their Asian enemy, ‘I’ve never seen a Jap that wasn’t yeller’ (4:20).
In conclusion,the article has outstanding key points. Haelle could’ve added more information to make the article a little better.She explained the outbreaks that occurred in different countries and different people. She provide examples to explain her explanation. She includes in her article that its family that are traveling is the one that 's getting the measles because they didn 't get any vaccination. Haelle did not include if the disease decreased over the years.The article would have been better because the article would of had enough keypoints.
Carson expresses her founded concerns about the adverse risks and toxicity associated with these pesticides using logical, emotional, and ethical appeal. This is demonstrated in the quote, “ Can anyone believe it is possible to lay down such a barrage of poisons on the surfaces of the earth without making it unfit for life?” Carson’s impassioned argumentative essay was composed as a warning to the human race. Poison was being slathered all over the earth’s surface. An invasion of life-threatening chemicals have the potential to mutate the healthy progression of future generations and their health. Carson suggests that insecticides developed to rid us of annoying bugs and insects and assist in the
The documentary film "Escape fire" is a simple truth that sets out issues about the cracked US healthcare system. The authors used the firefight scene as a metaphor to emphasize and make more visible and reachable the reality about US healthcare system and make people to that we have to fight against the defects of US healthcare system. We have to be aware and find even unthinkable solutions to save our healthcare system. To me the hospitals, doctors offices and other medical institutions should be the only place where saving human lives is considers number one priority not the moeny that dominates and rules the whole world. It is really scary to realize and accept that deaths due to medical errors in the list are located in the third place,
“Dead dish and gooey vegetable matter were exposed and rotted, while swarms of insects droned in the heavy, humid air.” Even though no one had cared about how sanitary the city was this was one of the reasons the disease spread. All the rotten foods and dead animals attracted mosquitoes which then spread the disease from one person to the next. Environment around the people did a major part in spreading the deadly
With any resource that we remove from the earth, we risk hurting people and many other things in the process. Hearing that these people were having to live off of contaminated water due to the chemicals that were inappropriately disposed was no surprise
