The Jewish people can be identified as mice. The anti-Semites considered Jews to be the pests of the human race, just like mice are considered pests of the animal kingdom. These people struggled on a daily basis to survive the holocaust: they foraged for food to keep themselves healthy and hid from the Nazi soldiers, like mice hid from predators. Both mice and Jews during the Holocaust had the same goal: to stay alive. Another interesting implication the image of Jews as mice is that they were the subjects in many experiments.
The use of animals may be replaced in the lab with the aided with usage of software as a substitute. Scientists have the equipment today to completely replace animal testing with one of a kind types of software and laptop models. The FDA, EPA, and National Institutes of Fitness has advanced programs and robots to completely replace the need for lab rats. This software may be very accurate and causes no distress to a living creature. Instead of being required to pay for, feed, and environment of a living animal, scientists have the possibility to apply computer systems as an alternative.
But instead we still continue to use animals. If we would just use human cells and over populated plants, we could save a million upon millions of animals each year. Animals are being hurt on purpose. Kittens are being purposely blinded, mice get tumors as big as their bodies, rats get seizures, primate skulls are cut open and electronics get implanted. Animals of all ages hide when humans pass their cages, because they don 't know if the will be dragged out of their cage injected, tested on, blood withdrawn, unnecessary surgery, or
“…of course, he would be able to crawl around unhampered in all directions but at the cost of simultaneously, rapidly, and totally forgetting his human past?” * This sequence is highly significant in the plot because “removing furniture” event is the only situation that remembers Gregor Samsa that he was a human, and he is being converted to an insect totally at this time. “Well, in a pinch Gregor could do without the chest, but the desk had to stay.” ** The desk and the framed picture had to stay because these articles symbolized Gregor’s unique intellectual activity out of work time. These two make him human actually because he is creating something for himself by using his qualities.
Egan explains that there are different types of narration within the text that all serve their own purposes and make the Zuo zhuan unique to other texts and historically valuable. While Confucius and other contributors to the Chunqiu are more forward in their narration of their own values and moral standings, the narrator of the Zuo zhuan takes a much more furtive approach, where he attempts to utilize the characters within the story to accurately express history and his opinions. This brings us to his first narrative technique, which Egan describes as “silence of the narrator” where “as the author removes himself from overt control and interpretation of his material, his covert manipulation must increase.” The Zuo zhuan includes numerous scenes of battles and historically notable conversations between war figureheads, which are included because of their significance and the lessons to be learned from them. However, the author of the Zuo zhuan only offers simple introductions and essential background information before describing historical events.
ANSWER QUESTION NO: 1 Using the Philip Rieff essay Toward a Theory of Culture, and the Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s essay, Happiness Revisited, select a passage or passages from each essay that summarizes completely their respective views on the phenomena and concept of ‘culture.’ (There are many contained in each chapter so I suggest you don't choose the first one find) Using these passages, explain the differences and or similarities between how Csikszentmihalyi and Rieff frame culture.
Before his death, Worth presented a paper titled “Ethnographic Semiotics.” In his paper, Worth suggested that scholars interested in the study of meaning via sign systems should focus their attention away from personal analysis of cultural texts to a more conceptualized notion of ethnographic study on the many ways people make meaning of their everyday lives. The concept of Ethnographic semiotics is based upon a stipulated semiotic approach: one that advocates a theory of signs and symbols that is less dependent upon the structural paradigms of linguistics and is more concentrated on an inclusive and broader or more general science of sign models. This notion is equally based on the assumption that the support for any semiotic analysis is propagated in the information that is generated from the domain of research as opposed to the elegance of the researcher’s debate or point of

xxvi. Here Foucault was “concerned with observing how a culture experiences the propinquity of things.” Uncreative Writing, Kenneth Goldsmith Introduction Page 13. Goldsmith started with Douglas Huebler’s idea and stated that the way to treat information makes a difference.
So one can advocate the comparative method of English literature Teaching. The world has become a more mechanical and a smaller place to migration trade, commerce and scientific developments. Likewise the impact of one literature on another became a part of the creative thoughprocess. Thus we realised the immensity of the world
Mice have a relatively short generation time. Gestation takes approximately 18-21 days and pups develop into sexually mature adults by 8 weeks. In the wild, Mus Musculus only breed seasonally however this can be manipulated within the lab. That is, in the lab favorable environmental conditions are produced and unlimited food is provided. This results in females being able to breed year round.
