To begin, I asked my boss, coworkers, family members and a couple of strangers what it is about an apple that keeps the doctors away. At first they thought I was perpetuating a ruse as I held an old fashion recorder while they gave an answer but once I told them it was for a school project, they became willing participants. After reviewing some of the answers to my qu... ... middle of paper ... ... minimize tooth decay by reducing the levels of bacteria. According to Webmd, “Other food choices include firm/crunchy fruits (for example, apples and pears) and vegetables. These foods have a high water content, which dilutes the effects of the sugars they contain, and stimulate the flow of saliva (which helps protect against decay by washing away food particles and buffering acid).” Most people are accustomed to eating an apple, I would surprised if there’s a single person on earth who has never been introduced to apple; it’s perhaps the most common fruit throughout the world.
Human Insecurity in T.S Eliot's The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock T.S Eliot's The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is an examination of human insecurity and folly, embodied in the title's J. Alfred Prufrock. Eliot's story of a man's "overwhelming question", his inability to ask it, and consequently, his mental rejection plays off the poem's many ambiguities, both structural and literal. Eliot uses these uncertainties to develop both the plot of the poem and the character of J. Alfred Prufrock. The poem's setting is one that conjures up images of vagueness. It is filled with "yellow fog" and "yellow smoke", both of which suggest a certain denseness and haziness.
’A gramme in time saves nine,’ said Lenina, producing a bright treasure of sleep-taught wisdom.”(89). By refusing to take soma, Bernard stays true to himself. He is miserable because he does not fit in because of his stature and refusal to be medicated and happy. The society in Brave New World revolves around the fact that everyone is happy. The sleep teachings make it so that they feel it is right to always be happy and take soma, not for personal benefit but for the benefit of society.
The German campaign in Soviet Russia was now over. Soviet Russia launched their own counter-offensive into the heart of Berlin in 1945; German resources were completely diminished and they stood no chance. Hitler would continue his descent into madness; that same year he committed suicide and the Allies were victorious in WW2. Sadly the ones that truly suffer are the innocent and not the higher authority that forces these orders. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the German soldiers who were forced to do what they did for Hitler and some even froze in the grueling winter not getting a chance to bid farewell to their families.
The author warns about the dangers of totalitarian havocs and reminds the reader of the dark side of history. Interestingly, Orwell's character not only develops the theme, but also symbolizes places. First, Orwell divides the imaginary superpowers that existed during the cold war, i.e.... ... middle of paper ... ... Winston and Julia were searching for this freedom.

Heidegger states that time only reminds men of how insignificant they are, how endless the universe is, and how all they can really do is seek to accept themselves on their own terms in anticipation of death, to wonder at the meaning of it all. Kierkegaard and Miller address the loathing of the impasse that threatens their lives as a result of historicism (and the absence of God). And Nietzsche claims that we must use history to escape animal-ness, but not so far as to become further imprisoned within our consciousness. Throughout history, and in each man’s life, there is return: to the center, to the same errors, and to that danger and fear of nothingness.

The third idea that the author uses to un-romanticize the beauty or glory of war is that a war can and will ruin a country’s economy. In World War I, life was unbearable for the soldiers serving in the war, but the citizens suffered too. Citizens had to cut down on their supply of food, fabric, and many other needs to support the troops. Paul Baumer and his mother had a conversation regarding the stock of food during the war.
They consumed meat containing the ground remains of poisoned rats and sometimes unfortunate workers who fell into the machinery for grinding meat and producing lard. Within months of The Jungle's publication, the sale of meat products dropped dramatically. The public outcry of indignation led to the passage of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. However, Sinclair did not write The Jungle to incite the American government into regulating the sanitation of the meat packing industry. The details regarding the unsanitary and disgusting conditions in meat packing factories are background details of a much larger picture.
But not all people who view migrants as poverty-stricken, hungry people see them in such a way. Mae, a waitress at one of the restaurants pities a family asking for bread and shows her compassion by letting the children have candy for much less than its worth. Instead of the anticipated let-down, the migrants receive pity from those with compassion and sympathy. Not only do affluent individuals see the migrants as uneducated and penniless, but also as easily agitated human beings. Because farm workers are afraid that these migrants may someday take over their farms, they try to make the migrants’ stay more unwelcoming.
SooJin Lee Period 2 Mr. Ajlouny Feb 6, 2014 The Metamorphosis Essay Prompt: How is Gregor’s transformation into a bug a representation of an existentialism crisis? Existentialism is known to be a dangerous philosophical theory that makes us question ourselves the purpose of our lives, and makes us feel isolated from the world that can even lead to accepting death. In his short story The Metamorphosis, Kafka represents the horror of existentialism through Gregor’s transformation of a bug. Kafka empathizes that existentialism is so dangerous that existential attitude occurs without even a person realizing until something changes in that person’s life. For example, Kafka creates a character name Gregor, a traveling salesman who works very hard to over provide for his family, to show how he does not realize how tired and overworking man he is until he transforms into a useless bug.
