They were being beaten behind closed doors but nobody would've known because the workers never said a word knowing what would happen to them. Joseph Hebergam also proved that the working life families in factories are unsafe and can cause death to the workers. He was interviewed by the Sadler Committee and these are some things that he had said,¨I have damaged my lungs. My muscles do not function properly and will not support the weight of my bones¨.¨He had told me that this was caused by the dust in the factories and overwork and insufficient diet¨.¨He was cut by a machine and died of infection¨.¨There were about a dozen died during the two years and half that I was
From the first line in the book, Miller has made Parris out to be a very forceful, powerful man as he shouts ‘Out of here!’ at Tituba as soon as she enters the room. Your first thoughts of Parris are that he is a very angry man but you soon find out that he has a whole different side to him. He is a very materialistic person, his main priority is himself and many of his parishioners think of him as an extremely greedy and selfish man. This is shown in the very first scene as we see Parris standing over his daughter Betty's sick bed. At first readers are made to feel bad for him but then you quickly realise that Parris is just worried about his reputation.
The main goal was to break a person down in order to work together because that is what was needed in order to survive, which Arthur understood. When asked about whether he remembered his first day in the service, he replied, “Actually, I remembered the party a few days before my first day of service.” He then recounted the first morning, the numerous examinations, and his two instructors: Sergeants Brown and Twiford. “Sgt. Twiford and Sgt. Brown are two instructors that I remember.” He remembered what they taught him in training, and explained more about Sgt.
Unsafe practices in Hillcroft nursing home in Slyne-with-Hest near Lancaster (May 2010 – September 2011): In report it states that nursing home staff neglected, emotionally and physically abused a persons with lack of capacity under The Mental Capacity Act 2000 because they would have no memory of the abuse and they couldn’t report it by themselves. There are few examples of how abuse happen: deliberately tipping resident out of wheelchair, striking, slapping, mocking and bullying resident, pelting residents with bean bags and balls at their heads “for entertainment as abusers felt bored”, laughing about residents. Failures to protect individuals: • Failure from staff team to provide care, treatment and support that meets people's needs.
Their sarcastic remarks to the powerless victim are evocative of the sarcasm Alex and his gang used on the victims that they beat and sometimes raped. Whilst Alex is suffering from the movie clips, Doctor Brodsky simply says ‘Excellent, excellent, excellent.’ Here, the Doctor is clearly portraying how he does not wish to show any sympathy towards helpless Alex, as he did do to his previous victims. The detail in which Alex goes into whilst in distress is extremely intense and vivid. Alex says ‘I was sweating a malenky bit with the pain in my guts and a horrible thirst and my gulliver going throb throb throb.’ For me, the repetition of the word ‘and’ explains to the reader just how many feelings of pain and discontent Alex is going through. Words such as ‘sweating’ ‘guts’ and ‘thirst’ are all words that we associate with labour and hard work and that is exactly what Alex seems to be going through.
The father appears to have been particularly harsh with his deprecation of the boy’s every action and effort. I would guess that this constant disapproval has lead to a withholding of the “signs of intelligence” by Dibs as an effective way to cause pain and therefore deeply attack the father. In keeping with the linear format of the book each chapter covers one therapy session. The form of Axline’s
Many witnesses on the documentary complained of the smell that enveloped the facility, stating that the residents were uncared for, and thus unhygienic. One resident at Willowbrook was misdiagnosed with mental retardation when he had cerebral palsy. He remembers his time there well and says he was abused, beaten with sticks, had his head kicked into a wall, and was forgotten by his family. He states it was his own personal hell. This was such a devastating situation and I can't help but wonder how many others were misdiagnosed as well.
The walls of the hospital were white, but even white the whole place was somehow dark. I have never loved to go to hospitals, the view of people, who are almost lifeless and are lying on beds in the middle of the corridors drives me crazy. While I and my family were waiting for the doctor, I did not talk with any of them. Just sitting there and thinking about how far from each other me and my father have become. I go back to the past and realized how frustrated I was of him because of the control that he had over me.
Ignorance is the parent of fear. –Ishmael In Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, Ishmael is ignorant of cannibalism, Ramadan, and Paganism, all of which his new bedfellow, Queequeg, participates in. He fears Queequeg upon their first meeting because of his ignorance. Ignorance fosters fear. When people are ignorant, they start to get scared, and tend to fear things they aren't knowledgeable about.
Sassoon uses blameful language to describe the ruthless of government in order to reveal the ugly hidden massage as settling the situation.
