While this is happening the diaphragm muscles contracts and pushes down towards the abdomen. The lungs are made to expand because the pleural surfaces of the lungs are attached to the pleural on the chest wall; this increases the volume of the air spaces and drops the air pressure in the lungs so that air rushes in....   [tags: Papers] 368 words

Comparing Family in Breathing Lessons, Homesick Restaurant, and Accidental Tourist - Family Instability in Breathing Lessons, Homesick Restaurant, and Accidental Tourist          The perfect, suburban family has become a prominant theme and stereotype in American culture.  Families from the works of Anne Tyler represent the exact opposite of this cultural stereotype.  None of Tyler's novels contain families with faithful, domestic wives, breadwinning husbands, and 2.3 well-behaved, perfect children.  Tyler kills this misconcieved stereotype in Breathing Lessons, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, and The Accidental Tourist.  Anne Tyler grew up with her parents on a series of experimental communes, so she developed a different perception of family life.  She observes domestic life from the view of an outsider looking in.  Minor-- and sometimes major-- flaws characterize the average family in Tyler's novels because many of today's families are imperfect.  Because of her communal upbringing, she observes family life more honestly than do writers who romanticize family life....   [tags: compare and contrast essay examples]
