John and Mattea Cabot had three sons named Ludovico, Sebastiano, and Sancto.
Dillard This overwhelming illustration of the chase builds up the impact of capture as she breaks the rules and years for self discovery. Dillard focuses on the successful feelings of her childhood and chase decision instead of the fright or embarrassment that Orwell depicted with his predicament. Orwell is an unhappy young policeman who lives in mental seclusion. He hates British imperialism, he hates Burmese natives, and he hates his job. He is completely alone with his thoughts since he cannot share his idea that "imperialism was an evil thing" with his countrymen.

At the end of the film, the agent of disruption, Edward, has been removed but, lest the audience should feel that Edward has been treated unjustly and the film end on a low note, the hero is given the chance to show his love for Kim and exact revenge on the obnoxious Jim. Although the suburb ostensibly returns to normal, Edward's visit has a lasting effect - snow continues to fall and he is kept alive in Kim's memory. Edward Scissorhands contains numerous stereotypical characters and the whole film satirises American society, a society whose values are as phoney as the cotton wool snow which Pete Boggs nails on his roof at Christmas time. Female stereotypes abound: we have the voracious man-eating middle-aged woman who lusts after Edward; the maternal acceptant Peg Boggs and the beautiful, virginal, adolescent daughter who eventually sees beyond Edward's superficial oddities to the underlying

In the story, Mink and Mrs. Morris have such a poor relationship because of the lack in relationship technology has created between them. Mink is playing “Invasion” while her mother is just in the house letting it take care of itself, instead of being with her daughter and building a relationship. She talks to her friend Helend on the “audio-visor” (174) and sitting in “the electric relaxing chair” (175) while Mink is out helping “Drill” invade planet Earth. Throughout The Illustrated Man, it is clear that Bradbury believes that technology and its dependency will only lead to destruction and hardship. He is extremely anti-technology and he makes that clear through his multiple examples of technology replacing relationships and ultimately causing damage and even death.
Dr. King recognizes that this is a potential flaw in collective action, but the justice pursued by his movement prevents his collective from such ill effects. Dr. King’s affinity for collective action is largely due to the nature of his problem. Just as Gandhi in India did, when faced with ridiculous oppression, King moves people to nonviolently protest such oppression. When the oppressors violently crack down, the lunacy of the oppression is made apparent and realized by the masses. Dr. King uses group action to reveal to the larger group to poor state of
‘Anson’s voyage around the world’ by Richard Walter. The text I have chosen for this essay is Richard Walter’s “Anson’s voyage around the world.” The book a primary source as it is a first hand account of the expedition undertaken by Anson.

The book is almost entirely text apart from two maps which are included. One map is a map of South America whilst the other is a map showing the Chinese Sea.
