We went up to the lake because everyone went there, because we wanted to snuff the rich scent of possibility on the breeze, watch a girl take off her clothes and plunge into the festering murk, drink beer, smoke pot, howl at the stars, savor the incongruous full-throated roar of rock and roll against the primeval susurrus of frogs and crickets. This was nature.” (647) In the protagonist’s attempt to rebel and be bad, he has no respect for “nature”. After years of desecration, the lake is called “Greasy” and the narrator takes pride in its transformation, calling it “nature”, and carrying out the tradition of being “bad” against
This mainly consists of a period in time where emotions are elevated and one's mood is irritable yet they show goal directed energy. This disorder also includes having inflated self-esteem or grandiosity as well as moments where flights of ideas racing through one's mind. These symptoms are first present in the beginning of the movie when Max builds his igloo as he is goal directed towards the task . It is present again when he demands food of his mother as this shows his inflated self-esteem and grandiosity. As Max ventures out to the land of the wild things, he is on a boat and travels through perilous weather and even climbs a mountain.
What purpose does it serve Keith Boykin to use his platform on the BET website to criticize Don Lemon’s use of his much larger platform on CNN to speak to the black community? Boykin actually sounds as if he believes that he and Don Lemon have reached a point in their careers that limit their voices in the black community because of the success they enjoy. This is a ridiculous notion and a dangerous one. Hip Hop artist use their global reaching microphones to spread the misogyny and ignorance that plagues the black community without any thought to the damage they cause. It is not only appropriate for Don Lemon to correct behavior from his national stage – it is his obligation to do so.

The Prentice Hall Essential Guide for College Writers (pp. 342-348) Englewood Cliffs. NJ: Prentice Hall. In his essay, “Standardized Tests: Shouldn’t We Be Helping Our Students” Colorado State University student Eric Boese (2011) passionately expresses his assertions that standardized testing is degrading the quality of American education; he argues (specifically with the intent to persuade readers and in particular test policy setting politicians) that standardized tests are too difficult and fail to properly measure and motivate the qualitative performance of both teacher and student.
When I go to the beach I see how dirty the water is there. I hesitate to swim in it. Lake Erie is a beautiful lake when it is not so dirty, and we should try and preserve it. If we don’t it will be become so polluted that it will be considered dead, this happened in the 1960s due to all the factories dumping waste in to the Lake. It was literally a dumping ground and it even caught on fire a few times due to the toxic wastes.
In the middle of a strong thunderstorm, they see a steamboat that has crashed, and Huck convinces Jim to land on the boat. Together, they climb aboard and discover there are three thieves on the wreck, two of whom are debating whether to kill the third. Huck overhears this conversation, and he and Jim try to escape, only to find that their raft has come undone from its makeshift mooring. They manage to find the robbers' skiff and immediately take off. Within a short time, they see the wrecked steamship floating downstream, far enough below the water-line to have drowned everyone on board.
Ready or not, we started down the unknown abyss filled with rigorous rapids and jagged rocks. The comment towards the rigorous rapids was no joke. The pull of the river was so overbearing it felt as if our raft was being ripped apart by a powerful force beneath us. That powerful force was the pull from the minor waterfall ahead. I felt despair and the feeling of defeat; I knew somebody was going in.
We put our scuba gear on, and begin the hunt to the river’s floor, to pick up left behind treasures. The water was a bit muggy underneath, all you see was dirt on the ground, tubers hands and legs just floating around, coins laying, a few broken watches, and a bunch of trash. We actually didn’t find treasure, but the experience was fun. I took advantage of everything that I got to do that day. Swimming in the water, sunbathing, eating juicy burgers straight from the grill, tubing down the river, scuba diving to find lost treasure, and enjoying the beautiful scenery the river offers.

Well in, “Competition in America”, Dudley Devlin does just that by portraying the evils that bring of competition. Devlin emphasizes on how there can only be one winner through competition and it can destroy the losers who worked just as hard. He also mentions how it “destroys the love of learning, our love for physical activity, and our desire to make friends”, which he basis the structure of his article on. The article puts winners at an antagonist point of view and losers as sort of the protagonists saying, “The winner is smiling because he enjoys the misfortune
