A Fathers Impact “It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father” (John XXIII). The stories “Powder” and “Reunion” have many similarities and differences. The short story “Powder,” by Tobias Wolff is about a father who got to spend quality time skiing with his son after he fought for the privilege to see him. Though he had a limited amount of time to spend with his son, for they had to be back at his wife’s house for Christmas Eve dinner, he learned to savor every minute he got with his son. “Reunion” by John Cheever is a short story about Charlie who hasn’t seen his father since his parents’ divorce.

The prosecution relies heavily on communication between Riff and others to establish motive. Marquette claims that Riff threatened to get even with him and put his store out of business after he was fired for being late. Motive is further established by Riff’s mentioning to Fender that he needed a lot more money than what he had won at poker that night. Verbal communication is further used to define the explanation of Riff about his winnings to those who asked, and doubt is cast upon his story by Martini, who claimed that he saw Riff cash in less money than he claimed to have and to have heard Riff complaining about being unable to win. This creates both a motive for Riff to rob, and casts doubts on the story that Riff gave to people who inquired
Turning Eric Cash’s life upside down seemed like a fun past time for Price. He started it off with Eric trying to help the police but ended up with Eric Cash giving up all aspirations, and losing everything that ever mattered. Price made Matty and Yolonda break Eric during their “guilty until proven innocent” interrogation. Then, after Eric left the Tombs, he became a soulless doll, wandering the streets of New York City, not having a care for the world. In his daze, he burnt his manuscript, occasionally working up the resolve to aid the police but then hesitating; maybe he was scared of seeing Yolonda and going through his nightmare again.
The first person to come is the drunk man who makes the story more tragic because he says 'I gotta a good mind to call a cop' which gets Andy’s hopes up that he is going to be found but then the drunk man says 'You don' wanna cop to fin' you all drunk an' wet in an alley, huh; Okay, buddy. This time you get off easy' which means no one will help Andy for now. The next people to come to the alley was a couple called Freddie and Angela who see Andy is in trouble but they don't want to get involved because Andy is a Royal and they say The Guardians will find out that they helped a Royal "If we get a cop, The Guardians'll find out who" says Freddie, so Freddie and Angela leave but Freddie mumbles "I'm Sorry" then leaves. I think this is the most surprising bit in the story because Andy is lying there dying and Freddie and Angela don't help, and could've saved his life, instead of him dying. The forth and last person to go to the alley is an old lady who, can't hear Andy because she was a little deaf and because of the rain hitting off the bins.
This belief helps Roskolnikov justify his behavior for eliminating her from society. First Roskolnikov plots his murderous act by going to Ivanovna’s apartment, which was also a pawnshop.

His society believes that colored people have no human rights, and are thought to be pieces of property traded or used as slaves for labor. This idea has influenced Huck from a young age to believe that colored people are not considered equal to white individuals, often causing him to have strong disagreements with Jim along their journey. “I see it warn’t no use wasting words — you can’t learn a nigger to argue. So I quit.” Huck makes it seem as if robbers murder him during a break in, so he can run away from his hometown to escape his drunken father and the life he feels unsuited for. Jim runs away due to overhearing his owner, who is also Huck’s guardian, talk about selling Jim.
When the media does give faces to the numbers, it's never the pretty ones. The media will make the poor look as bad as possible. They mostly provide us stories about poor urban or black people that have cheated the welfare, that are drug addicts or greedy panhandlers (Mantsios 185). The media picks a handful of poor they will represent and it's never in a good way. This never helps the poor look like normal people because the society starts hating them.
