Both David Grossman and Henry Jenkins have strong opinions on video game violence. According to Grossman, violent video games are not protected under the 1st Amendment, because they teach you to kill. He also says that the military uses these games to train men to fight and kill. Grossman states that there are three solutions to the effects of these games, education, legislation, and litigation. Jenkins, on the other hand, says that Grossman's view only works if "we remove training and education from a meaningful cultural context, we assume learners have no conscious goals and that they show no resistance to what they are being taught, and we assume that they unwittingly apply what they learn in a fantasy environment to real world spaces."
The great Gatsby homework: Chapter 1: 1. My respond to Nick Carraway’s quote in chapter one is that we shouldn’t judge people. As how his father once told him “Just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” His father gave Nick this wise advice to let him know that judging others only is a scandalous thing to do , how can you judge someone if you don’t know what they been through. He is mainly saying you don’t know anything about that person’s life how can you assume stuff and compare it with yours and criticize. I fully agree with Nick’s father point of view on this situation due to the fact that he has all reasoning to make this statement it’s foolish of people to criticize one whom you don’t know anything about.
Lauren Slater states ''The fact is,'' Emler says, ''we've put antisocial men through every self-esteem test we have, and there's no evidence for the old psychodynamic concept that they secretly feel bad about themselves. These men are racist or violent because they don't feel bad enough about themselves. ''(Slater 860) Lauren Slater also met with Roy Baumeister of Case Western Reserve University. Essentially, Roy believes that the unexpected notion that self-esteem is overrated and to suggest that it may even is a culprit, not a cure. In Lauren Slater’s “Trouble with Self-Esteem” Baumeister and his colleagues write: ''People who believe themselves to be among the top 10 percent on any dimension may be insulted and threatened whenever anyone asserts that they are in the 80th or 50th or 25th percentile.
Priestly criticises the selfishness of people like the Birlings. What methods does he use to present this selfishness? In the inspector calls by J. B. Priestly he questions the morals of the Birling and the Croft families showing the audience that they are selfish and only care for themselves and their status. He shows this in a number of different ways… The first way that priestly presented Mr Birling’s selfishness was when he told Mr Birling about his part in Eva’s suicide in front of his kids.
First, he broke the department policy by not video recording the interview which was essential to built a solid case if they had confess in which he claimed the two did. Secondly, he did not have either of the young offenders guardian(s) present which was a grand mistake. Not only did he confess to intentionally crossing the line by avoiding bringing in the parents and including them in the interview he probably is also guilty of coercing them in the confession. According, to the self-incrimination clause it clearly states that any statement made by defendant(s) while in police custody before trail will be inadmissible during prosecution unless the police first warn the defendants that they have the right to remain silent, the right to consult an attorney before being questioned, the right to have an attorney present during police questioning, the right to a court appointed attorney if they cannot afford one, the right to be informed that any statement they do make can
They found out, didn't they? And how? Because somebody called Junior a dirty nigger'"(83) . Observed in the scene where he refuses to avoid discussing sex with Ted and Junior, he insists on telling his sons the facts of life, including the ugly fact of racism. Another issue raised was the fact that Irene continuously tries to persuade Brian into doing the things she wants in order to feel safe.
If you are a person who can read people you might have been saved the experience that Mrs. Culhane went through. After clearing his son’s name of the crime, she tried to offer him less money, which is something you just don’t do when dealing with Mr. Ehrengraf. This is when you learn about the real side of Mr. Ehrengraf, the man who you do not cross. After she tries to explain that to him her reasoning, she is told a “story” of how he was able to get her son off. The truth was too much for her, and terrified her to her core.
One character that had the most honesty would be Antigone. She went and stood up for what she believed in, when she got caught she didn’t lie she told the king the truth. That she did indeed burry her brother, she could of lied and gotten away with the it, but she knew what was right and not let anybody else get blamed for her actions.

He didn’t care what was the right thing to do he was just selfish and only thinking about himself.
Al Smetana, the president of a manufacturing firm Rayburn Unlimited, is considering what to do to deal with Craig Lindley, who misuses company time and resources watching pornography on the Web. In my opinion Al should fire Craig to send a message to other employees not to misuse company time and resources. Additionally, Al’s this action shows his employees that he treats everyone fairly in working condition. Moreover, Al had better help Craig Lindley to overcome the psychological problem for sake of his contribution to the company and to show friendship. Al should fire Craig Lindley for several reasons.
This essay will then analyse the way Miller present this theme, the purpose behind it and the contrasting perspectives between the characters over it. The context of the passage is the confrontation between Chris and George over the truth for who is the real culprit who had acknowledged the cracked lines in the cylinder heads and still insisted in shipping them out which then resulted in the death of twenty one soldiers and Larry’s suicide. Before George’s arrival, the truth of Joe Keller being the real murderer was twisted in which even Annie believes that her father was the one who have committed the sin. During that point of time, the tension over this issue was not explicit even though Kate is very affected by the issue and is seen to be in self-denial by avoiding anything that have regards with it. This can be seen when she gets exasperated with Joe playing with Bert over the police and criminal game and said to Joe that “there’s no jail here!
