In poor area all valuable things were gone within 24 hours while in rich area nothing was stolen until Philip Zimbardo broke the window of the car. Once the car seemed to be broken and no actions were undertaken, the people from rich neighborhoods started to steel as well. (Sampson and Raudenbush, 2004) The theory of broken window is the understanding of social psychology toward people and their action over broken and not fixed things. Rough definition of the theory would be, if you break a window and nobody fix it is more likely another window from another individual will be broken. The reason why this chain reaction happens is because we all have this vandalism need and need to cross the rules as we live in the society where we need to follow the rules at all time and sometime it is just exciting to cross the rules.
On the morning of the second day the prisoners began to rebel against the guards by ripping off their ID numbers and barring the doors while taunting the guards. This event was the first step down the slippery slope that would follow. The guards took matters into their own hands and drove the prisoners out of their cells. The guards began to take on cruel and sadistic behaviors by humiliating the prisoners with menial tasks such as cleaning their latrines with their bare hands. After the sixth day the experiment was terminated because it was immoral to the prisoner group, of which lost three members due to mental breakdowns.
Which is even more surprising that at such a young age they don’t care at all. Jake Abbott seemed to have a much different prison experience than most other people, or at least that what it seems that way from how prisoners are treated today. Jake seemed to also push the buttons of the guards, one instance when he said that he had been waiting to splash water in the guards face for a while. Then after being given another thirty days on the starvation diet, when they gave him the paper to sign about it he wadded it into a ball and threw it at the officers’ chest, giving him yet another thirty days (In the belly of the beast). It seems that he is very reckless in the way that he goes about serving his time.
In 1947 he was sent to Shawshank Prison where the story revolved around Andy’s transformation to prison life and his journey as an inmate in the prison. The movie was produced by Niki Marvin and directed by Frank Darabont. • The subculture that I will be analyzing is corruption and physical abuse depicted by the guards and warden at Shawshank prison. • The physical abuse and corruption started very early in the movie, Andy Dufresne’s first night in Shawshank an inmate was beaten to death by Captain Hadley because of his outbursts late at night. Captain Hadley plays a major role in the physical abuse at the prison.

The only time we had that was actually scary was when Nikolai and Takeo went out for supplies at night and didn’t come back for a day. We found them passed out in a small jail about a mile down the road. They said they only intended to stay for the night so they locked themselves up in a cell, and the key was so rusted that it broke. They were going to wait till we came( they had a hole large enough to see outside) and they would yell for us when they saw us. They said it was empty except for a few mutants, but they found something very ‘scientifical’ as Nikolai put it.
Living so many years in the prison gave him somewhat enthusiasm that he can hardly resist. One can grow stronger than the strongest animal when he had been convicted. Jose Mujica also stated that he needed to create and imagine things in mind to keep him rational. The situation had affected him badly as he needed to get through a psychiatric treatment as people afraid that he might be hallucinating. Despite all the things that he had gone through, he managed to persuade them to let him to read as they gave him physics and chemistry books after seven years of not being allowed to read anything in the
I used to envision my ‘ideal body’ until I realised I’m already living in it. This body of mine has seen me through nights when I worked in the lab like a crazy person, forgoing sleep and rest. It withstood severe illness and treatment which was almost as brutal. It piled on the pounds to protect me from threats – all of which were in my head, but felt real. I am in awe of all the ways my body has looked after me, and I can finally look after it as well.
My first proper encounter with mechanical engineering was in high school when I read the book Concepts of Physics by renowned professor HC Verma. The beauty of the subject matter, the simple yet all encompassing laws of motion held a charm unparalled by anything else. I finished the two books within months and moved on to other books. With passing time my interest kept on increasing I joined a local repair store where everything from TVs to Toys where repaired. I found myself fascinated with these toys and started seeing them in a different light altogether.
