In Franz Kafka’s novella The Metamorphosis, there is a lot of change going on, both physically and mentally. Of course, Gregor changes from a human into a bug, but there is much more change than just that. Gregor’s family, which consists of Gregor, father, mother, and his sister Grete, goes through a change as a whole and as individuals. As a result of Gregor’s physical metamorphosis, his sister and father both go through physical and mental metamorphoses....   [tags: Literary Review]

The Negative Impact of California's Three Strikes Law

- "Three Strikes and You're Out!” you think you would be hearing that phrase at a baseball game when a player has struck out but the phrase has been used as a metaphor for the three strikes law in California. It is a law that sentences repeated offenders, of serious or violent crimes, to twenty-five to life in prison. Although it seems desirable to put repeated offenders in prison, they are convicted even for petty crimes. It sentences an offender, whose first strike was a serious or violent crime, to serve a double sentence if the second crime is also serious or violent....   [tags: Argumentative, Persuasive]

Human Behavior and the Social Environment: A Look at Three Theories

- Human Behavior and the Social Environment Social work has long recognized the relationship between the behavior of an individual and the environment in which the individual interacts (Hutchison, 2008).

For this case study, the following three theories will be examined for relevancy: Life cycle theory, role theory and resiliency theory.

Hiding the Tilt in the New York Times

- Newspapers intend to report both sides of the story but it is difficult to withdraw bias completely. Reporters are only human and bring about their own opinions into their work. This can even happen without any realization that the reporter is adding bias from their own perspective. It can be seen more in some works and less in others, depending on the topic. A reporter focusing on an account of the presidency is likely to take it on with a one sided judgment. The actions of President Obama are so controversial that it is hard not to express the news without a tilt in one direction or another....   [tags: newspaper, bias, news]
