As I stepped out my front door, locking it behind me I thought, “I must be careful where I stand as the ice is thick and deep.” I walked cautiously out of the street making sure I was steady on my feet and wasn’t going to fall. I was wrapped head to toe with clothing-my eyes were the only part of me showing. I felt like the abominable snowman, as I was the only soul on the streets. It was ludicrous how in the whole of Paisley there wasn’t one person or animal or ever noise on this day. Not one! I saw no children, heard no birds and smelt no fumes; it was almost as if I was the only person left.
I was now within a couple of miles of my grandma’s house, my feet wet, my throat dry and my body cold. The wind crawled up my spine as I began to shiver. Suddenly the weather took a dramatic change for the worst. The thunder roared like the dominant lion, the lighting flashed and hailstones the size the size of golf balls began to pound my already weakened body. At this point I felt unable to carry on in my journey in the snow. As I turned the corner I was once again filled with joy as the sight of my grandma’s house brought back memories of hot chocolate and marshma...

...ase, yet I said nothing, even when the dog’s life was at risk.
I was forced into submission when the vet found sharp objects that looked like pieces of glass in his stomach; I had to tell the truth now. I took a deep breath and told my gran, she looked so upset and was extremely disappointed in me.
Although Butch recovered well and Gran never mentioned another thing about this incident, it is me that has to live with my actions and the outcome that could have been fatal.
It took a few months before I released the full extent of my stupid actions and the possible consequences. Being responsible for causing emotional and physical pain to another was such a heavy burden; I however did learn a very serious lesson from this. I learned it is easier to tell the truth no mater how difficult it seems because the result of not being honest could be disastrous.

- Introduction The Order Cetacea is one of the most distinctive and highly specialized groups of mammals. Over the course of evolutionary history, cetaceans have become adapted to surviving and prospering in a vast aquatic environment. One of the most important obstacles they have overcome is the ability to be obligate ocean dwellers while still breathing oxygen. Cetaceans are able to remain underwater for extended periods of time, returning only to the surface to exhale. Diving beneath the surface is an essential component of life for these species since almost all of their food sources are found under the surface of the ocean.... [tags: order cetacea, biology]

- The dancer, Martha Graham, once said “Censorship is the height of vanity.” Ray Bradbury would agree. Censorship makes media shallow and information limited; individuals living in a harshly censored society will be engulfed by feelings of hollowness. For instance, Montag from Fahrenheit 451 feels that his life is missing something, and believes that the books he burns hold it. Clarisse’s classmates learn absolutely nothing in school, and are tired out to the point that they cannot think. Even more, Beatty, the novel’s largest advocate for censorship, has a breakdown, in which he implied that he read heavily, and that his job as Fire Chief caused him deep, inner turmoil....

- Deep Ecology/Ecosophy The ideas behind deep ecology have major implications today. They allow people to think more profoundly about the environment and possibly come to a better understanding of their own meaning. People are intensely concerned about the world’s technological adolescence, massive consumerism, and overpopulation. A man named Arne Naess, former head of the philosophy department at the University of Oslo founded an idea that can direct people’s anxiety away from their "shallow" notion of the problem to one that is much "deeper." "Deep ecology goes beyond the limited piecemeal shallow approach to environmental problems and att... [tags: essays research papers]

- The Ramifications of Green Political Thought According to Andrew Dobson The fundamental concept Andrew Dobson brings out in his novel Green Political Thought, is the revolutionary im-plications of ecologism. Dobson describes ecology as “deep green thinking.” He asserts that ecologism is a distinctive political ideology, which is separate from environmentalism, just as liberal-ism, conservatism, and socialism are kept separate from one another. He further maintains that what sets ecologism apart from other ideologies is "its focus on the relation-ship between human beings and the non-human natural world." Dobson further states that the purpose of green con-sumerism is to dist... [tags: essays research papers]
