When he got home from that, he found out that Clarisse had died. His wife, Mildred, has an addiction to pills that will most likely eventually kill her too. Teen murdered
Ms. Li was at some fault of the accident happening because she was stopped in the street and caused immediate hazard for other drivers. The driver that was at most fault was the defendant Mr. Phillips because he was going way to fast and ran a yellow light.

Watson and Crick secretly viewed Photo 51, never gave Franklin credit, and ruined Franklins image in Watson’s book he published. During the time, female scientists, such as Rosalind Franklin were treated very poorly. For example, they were forced to leave the campus during lunch, as they were not allowed in the cafeteria. Also, her co-workers disliked her and Wilkins was disgruntled to learn he was not in charge of Franklin and she was in fact on her own research. After Franklin printed Photo 51, Wilkins decided it would be acceptable to secretly show Watson and Crick, who quickly decided to use the photo to their advantage.
Fire was meant to strike fear in the hearts of people, but yet Montag says “it was a pleasure to burn.” He didn’t understand what the consequences of him burning the books had, and neither did the rest of the world. Society was one mind, and one body; no longer filled with individuals. Fire was everywhere, so no one questioned it, just accepted it. At the same time Clarisse comes along as the exact opposite of fire. She was soft, gently, and seemed to be filled with a boisterous joy.
In the group is Alison Reynolds the misfit, Andrew Clark the jock, Brian Johnson the geek, Claire Standish the princess and John Bender the rebel. It is apparent that they all have stressed relationships with their parents, are unsure about their future and have immense pressure from their peers (Loukides, 30). Allison Reynolds is a strange, unusually silent character, who is a mystery to most people. She did not do anything to deserve detention, except that she had nothing to do on this day and decided to go into detention in order to find company. Her parents are uninvolved and ignore her.
However because Miss Emily was so secretive all she did was stare at the druggist and he ended up still getting the arsenic for her, never knowing what it was really for. Impulsive nature within sociopaths and Miss Emily consists of her creating hopelessness in her victim (Homer) and she believed that she was all-powerful and had no concern for her impact on others. Miss Emily created hopelessness in Homer by killing him with arsenic and not giving him the choice to leave her, which is what the townspeople thought he was going to
When Mrs Birling meets the inspector, the first thing she says is “I don’t think we can help you with much”, when she hasn’t even listened to what the inspector has to say. Instantly after, Sheila tells her mother that she feels “that she will be afraid and ashamed after hearing the story” but Mrs Birling dismisses Sheila’s statement shows that she doesn’t feel sorry for anyone, and blames the whole incident on the helpless woman, Eva. Through out the play, it seems that Mrs. Birling still thinks everything is the girls fault and decides that she has nothing to do with the girl’s death. Sybil is known to be irresponsible and childish after refusing to help a helpless woman because she had used the Birling’s name and was telling ‘lies’ about her husband leaving her and giving her stolen money but refusing to take it. Instead she blames it all on the husband who is responsible for Eva’s unborn
In Fahrenheit 451, the government used extreme censorship to keep the citizens blissfully happy. The battle between independent thought and censorship made a new job for the firemen. The firemen burn any and all books rather than putting out fires as they were initially assigned to do. The government feels that books cause independent thought, which confuses people and makes people unhappy. As an effect, the firemen become, “custodians of our peace of mind, the focus of our understandable and rightful dread of being inferior: official censors, judges, and executors” (59).
Curley made life really unpleasent for his wife on the ranch. He never had a proper conversation with her throughout the book and never cared how she felt.

Everyone on the ranch called Curleys Wife a ''tart'' because she flirts and the ranch men said ''Shes got the eyes''.
