In order to distract the population from those injustices the government of Panem creates the reality television program, the Hunger Games. At first glimpse, it seems nearly impractical that the horrible hypothesis behind these illusory games could ever turn into reality (Alexander, 15). The first major similarity is that the games are televised and ceaselessly discussed in Panem media, alluding to reality TV in modern society. The Hunger Games draw a parallel on gladiatorial games that are part of reality television today. This parallel indicates that reality television though not as archaic as the gladiatorial games, still offers real entertainment.

Testing Using the virtual lab found at www.weymouthhsbiology.wikispaces.com, the experiment will be run to analyze cricket chirp rate. The variables that will be observed are: * # of crickets nearby * Air temperature (25°C) * Atmospheric pressure (760 mm) * Humidity (15%) * Wind speed (2M/SEC) During each of my experiments, I will keep the above constant and vary a single change. This experiment will use the virtual lab and collect and analyze the data. Data collection Atmospheric Pressure | Pressure | Chirps | 700 | 148 | 730 | 148 | 760 | 148 | Wind speed | Wind speed | Chirps | 0 | 148 | 2 | 148 | 4 | 148 | Temperature | Temp | Chirps | 5°C | 4 | 15°C | 76 | 24°C | 141 | 32°C | 198 | 45°C | 292 | Number of crickets #Crickets | Chirps | 0 | 148 | 10 | 148 | 20 | 148 | Percent Humidity | Humidity | Chirps | 10 | 148 | 15 | 148 |
Donald Bradman has made a name for himself as an extremely good cricketer and the English cricket team were concerned that they were never going to win back the ashes. They knew they had to think up some way of stopping Bradman, mainly due to his youth and the fact that he could continue to beat England for many years to come.

This was backed up by Percy Fender, a former English Cricket Captain. When Jardine was appointed captain of the English Cricket Team to tour Australia in the 1932/33 test series he had a meeting with Harold Larwood, a coalminer from Nottingham and a very fast opening bowler, and Bill Voce, another fast bowler to discuss ways to stop the skill of Bradman.
