Eckels as an hunter, is motivated to go back in time, not only be able to see one in his own eyes, but kill a T-rex. Eckels, along with a few other people with Travis, were specifically told not to step off the designated path leading to the jungles roamed by the dinosaurs.

After shooting the gun Joe goes into the woods by himself. It seems that Joe’s language is more scientific in this chapter, ‘some people find their long perspective in the stars and galaxies; I prefer the earthbound scale of the biological’, this is a contrast to previous chapters as us readers have started to believe Joe is losing his rationality and thinking less scientifically.

One of the first things I will argue about is that even though many people believed that the landings on the moon was a hoax because technology back then, in the 70s, were not as advanced as today where we can have clear cut image easily. That being said, this is why there are still some who wants to make accusations because not enough proof were provided. This is where comes in the article called ’’Bad Astronomy’’ by Philip Plait who is an astronomer where he makes an analysis on many of the conspiracy theorists claims and provides them with descriptions that proves them wrong. For example, the conspiracy theorists claims that one should be able to see brighter stars when you are in outer space. In the one of the pictures provided by the NASA which stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration who were also the ones that assigned the mission Apollo 11, no stars could be seen.
Critical Response Essay Within the stories A Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury and Nethergrave by Gloria Skurzynski, science fiction is used very strongly. Ray Bradbury’s story shows how much of a small act can have a huge impact on the future. Both stories use technology to portray science fiction. A Sound of Thunder used a time machine to go back thousands and millions of years ago, and Nethergrave using a computer that a vortex appears on to show the main character, Jeremy, a game that seems 3D. In both of these stories, the thing I noticed the most was how tone was used.

By reading this novel, the author’s intention is to challenge us, the reader, to evaluate our current world and make comparisons to theirs. In ‘Shades of Grey,’ ‘Rules’ are a way in which determines the way your life is lived. This rules are incredibly ridiculous but add humour which helps grab the readers intentions.

Entry 2 I wish there was a better way of traveling instead of using a flock of wild birds…but I mean beggars can be choosers. Finally! I get to the first planet, asteroid 325? Yeah, I think that’s right. I was a little scared of what was on here at first but now I feel dumb that I was.
Comparative essay The theme of good versus evil in the novels Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and Veronica Roth’s Divergent is explored by good characters overcoming obstacles in the pursuit of success. In both novels, their main characters suffer through difficult obstacles to achieve success. They even provide a setting which creates more obstacles for the protagonist. Both authors use different methods of conveying the story to the readers. When a person is faced with a problem, he would be faced with making a decision, how he would deal with that problem.
And of course, how can a person end his or her own tendency to procrastinate. Without further ado, or further putting off, I will answer each of the questions. First of all, is procrastination a recent phenomenon rooted in modern society's reliance on convenience? Or is this something that has been happening since the beginning of time? Did T-Rexes put off going hunting because they would prefer playing Halo 3 on X-Box, or is that just teenagers and lonely thirty year old gamers of today?
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro When I chose to read Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, Never Let Me Go, I was confused by the genre it was labeled under: Science Fiction. My mother told me that it was a very sad novel that makes you think. But after finding out that it was a Sci-Fi novel, I was expecting some bizarre futuristic story in an out of this world setting. However, Ishiguro creates a meaningful and realistic story that is framed by different facets of the natural world. It takes place in a variety of living conditions in the countryside of England.
