The Edmund Fitzgerald is a big mystery like the Titanic and just like the Titanic it has lots of theories on how it sank but to pacific there was 4 theories on how it sank on November 10, 1975 on lake Superior. People still don’t know what happened to the Edmund Fitzgerald till this day or what happened to her crew 29 men because no one lived to tell the tale of the Edmund Fitzgerald. There are many theories on how it sank to be exact there was 4 theories anyway. I choose the 4th theory. I believe in this theory because in the text titled the “Theory : 4Three Sisters” it talks about how the Edmund Fitzgerald could have sank by the Three Sisters the Three Sisters is a Lake Superior phenomenon that has two huge waves and later a monster wave as the
The novel The Wave was published in 1991, and authored by Morton Rhue. The Wave originated from a class experiment in Ben Ross’s class. The students were free individuals, but before they knew it, they were being brainwashed into The Wave, its salutes, and its mottoes. The main themes in this novel are, the importance of individuality, dangers of conformity and the power of peer pressure. Power of peer pressure is like being pressured to do or join something without your free will.
There are two sides to every story—conventions and archetypes manifest depending on the angle dystopians and post-apocalyptics are viewed at. In John Wyndham’s The Chrysalids, a common held belief is that the novel is merely a post-apocalyptic dystopian novel much like most of the books that share the same genre around the time of the Cold War. At first glance, the story shares the narrative of an isolated post-nuclear civilization situated in Labrador and Newfoundland, Canada, where the mutated citizens of the region are sterilized and abolished by the religious government if found; the mutants thus endeavor on a journey to escape the injustice. However, upon taking a closer look through the archetypal lens, one can attest that there are archetypal
The Final Vote “Ralph I think that we should have a meeting” said Piggy. “We need to talk about what happened to Simon and we need to decide once and for all who is going to be chief.” [Ralph looks at Piggy with an expression of deep thought] “I agree, but I don’t know what to say.” “I do Ralph, I’ll do all the talking.”
What is an actual hero? The word hero is similar to a metaphor, meaning it has many meaning depending on who you ask. Most of the time the answer has something to deal with a super hero, something nonfiction, or when it is fiction it is someone rich and famous. Although, no all the time does it mean that a person saved someone or someone had a dramatic imprint on the world, creating a life changing event. A hero can simply be someone who went through life, through difficult obstacles, never giving up, showing an example of bravery and loyalty.
There is always a science to everything, whether it’s taste in style, reactions to different events or even taste in friends. Our human brain reacts to social conformity in a peculiar way. Research reveals “the brain activity that underlies our tendency to "follow the crowd” and how human behavior can be guided by the perceived behavior of other individuals. Our natural human conformist nature leads us to do things that are dangerous, silly or even crazy.
Throughout the novel, the struggle David faces with his family, friends and loved ones, all relates to him not being about to accept or come to terms with his identity. Instead, it feels like a roller coaster of emotions… “I don't know, now, when I first looked at Hella and found her stale, found her body uninteresting, her presence grating. It seemed to happen all at once—I suppose that only means that it had been happening for a long time.” (Baldwin) David introduces his confusion in the beginning of the narrative when he talks about Hella.
I thought that this film was extremely well done. I was very creeped out by the events which occurred in the film, especially Tim’s abrupt and graphic suicide at the end of the film. I think that the directors were very effective in capturing the attention of the audience, and in allowing the audience to feel the fear and horror that the characters felt throughout the film. However, there were storylines that started very strong but were not developed throughout the film, which really upset me. An example of this is when Marco cheated on Karo with another girl, and Karo did not find out, which shows how the situation was never resolved.
David looked like a ferret. He was polite, a gentleman to a fault, I disliked him in seconds. Perpetually bored, often subdued, David gave the outward of appearance of a kind, older man. The truth was he had feminine qualities, the worst of them. He fought hard to mask them, but if he failed to get what he wanted, he gave away the secret.
Every Once and awhile, tragedy strikes, and the whole country sits still. On January 13th, 1982, Air Florida Flight 90 crashed. An event such as this one, though tragic, is sadly fairly common. Although, on January 13th, every soul in the united states had their eyes glued on the news channels, following the crash. There are many speculations about why this crash, in particular influenced the public so dramatically.
This is what will happen when boys are left to their own devices. In the post World War Two novel The Lord of the Flies by William Golding, a group of young children, all boys, are stranded on an island after a plane crash. At first, the boys relish in their carefree, happy, island environment, but eventually after many terrible events it turns into a hellish nightmare. Although it may seem that complete autonomy is a good idea for each individual’s lives, in actuality humankind needs a strong, but not absolute, government to help ensure the continuity of the human race.
