Johnny told Ponyboy, in a letter, on page 178 that he should continue to watch sunsets because it was gold. The only other character mentioned in The Outsiders who admires watching sunsets is Cherry Valance, therefore he really stands out. Ponyboy’s explanation of what most Greasers do is, “Greasers are almost like hoods; we steal things and drive old souped-up cars and hold up gas stations and have a gang fight once in awhile.” Despite his explanation, he doesn’t act like this at all. Ponyboy is unique because he wants to do something good in the world. In fact, he did- he wrote about something that was important to him.
Support 1: To start it all off, Manchester was a three hundred pound basebal loving, sweet treat addict with a kind heart. Unfortunately for him his brother Skidmore was an evil man who was envious, and down to no good. He gave everyone around him the creeps and that could be another reason of why other people thought he was guilty was because nobody likedf him so they wanted to accuse Skidmore. Initially, Skidmore hated Manchester and finally decided to do something about it like poisoning his pretzel because he knew he could get more than one thing from his death. One of the things that he can get is the family wealth, and another is a better feeling that your brother who everyone loved is
The only main difference being which rhetoric strategies they used. The first and most common way Pall Mall’s made their product more desirable was using a famous figure. This method of rhetoric comes from the greek word ethos (the action of using a character or figure that hold a higher stature in a community to promote an idea or opinion). Tied into the ethos trend in these commercials, was to attempt to make smoking look like the coolest thing a teenager could do. Pall Mall commercials always showed people from all classes, wealthy businessman, fisherman, and women.
Bum the book. Serenity, Montag. Peace, Montag.” Fire, a dangerous tool the firemen use to control public activity, symbolizes peace to some, as it cleanses their society of what they’ve considered more dangerous than the act of destroying property and people. Montag burning Beatty to death being the most obvious example of fire being powerful within the book, yet “Fire is bright and fire is clean” (pp. 59) As Michel Foucault says, “Freedom of conscience entails more dangers than authority and despotism.” Besides enforcing censorship through incineration, the government also enacted ways of preventing an ability to desire further knowledge.
In other words, it is very clear in what it seeks to present. If there were to be a negative to the ad, it would be that the ad is a little but too expository in its design, but in the same way, ads targeting the cigarette makers were quite effective in relations of changing the public’s opinion about smoking, so perhaps an excessively expository message is not as bad as it would seem. The second part of the ad and its effectiveness is depending on the personal feelings of those who see the ad. In other words, there will be certain people who just don’t care about deforestation. There will be some people who will take the ad to heart.
I feel like it educated me a lot on the matter as well. Boyle does a great job at capturing all the aspects of the trials as well as the personal things in Dr. Sweet’s life. I appreciated how Boyle described all the good and bad parts of this controversial period in American history. Even though there are happy parts in the book like how Dr. Sweet won the trial he worked so hard to achieve, I didn’t particularly like how the end of the book ended so intensely. Dr. Sweet’s wife and child die due to sickness and he ultimately “went into his tiny bedroom, picked up a handgun, and put a bullet in his brain” 2.
His counter part the Joker kills people in the hundreds with his lackeys at his side. The Joker has little to no sense of right or wrong, he lives to bring misery to the people of Gotham. When the Joker kills it could be for any number of reason from just being bored or wanting to prove a point. At one point the Joker killed over 200 people in a terrorist bombing. The Joker later even laughed at this saying that "it was one of the funniest things" he had done.The Batman strains every time to never kill anyone the complete opposite to the Joker who seems to kill someone everywhere he
This is important because it shows the extreme Ishmael went for drugs and other things. Ishmael also had done so many drugs that killing people was/were as easy as drinking water and death didn’t even scare him. Ishmael says “The idea of death didn’t even cross my mind at all and killing had become as easy as drinking water”(Beah,122). This quote is important because it shows the Ishmael doesn’t have any feelings nor self-control. An article says “Drugs are mixtures of chemicals and because of their structures they can affect the body in many different ways.” Some of these ways are loss of self control and impulsiveness which both relate to Ishmael, because he had no feelings self-control and impulsiveness because he had no consideration of what could happen to him during the war or what he was doing to other people.
One of the main reasons that America’s agency for international development does not support DDT is because of the societies’ strong dislike and un-comfortableness towards the product, as Peterson, a Usaid official says. Scientific research in the 50 years or so after Silent Spring was published, shows that if used properly, and not recklessly like people had before the toxic properties of DDT was discovered, there is minimal harm to humans and to the
We look on the television filled with reality shows and political news. It is almost a distraction from resolving serious issues like world hunger, poverty, clean water and the homeless. It is like Herman Hess says that because of looking away, we are killing those that need our help. Doing nothing is almost as bad as hurting the person yourself. During World War II nobody said anything when they took the Jews because they were not a Jew.
