Chapter three mainly focused on the filming of a movie, this movie was about shark attacks and could be related to the movie “Jaws”. I found this chapter interesting because you see how different growing up in Hawaii in the 1950’s was. Some differences that I have noticed are that you had less supervision and generally there was a lot more you were able to do. For example now a days there would be no way any sane parent would let their eight or nine year old child out on a motorboat by themselves to go try to catch a shark. Also some other difference I noticed was that technology even for that time frame was behind.
LB+:There should have been bacterial growth but no blue colonies because there was an anti-biotic acting against it. LB-: Nothing should have happened because there was no bacteria and plasmid given. 3. One of the plates should have no growth and that was the LB- plate. This happened because the plate was given no bacteria or anything to start growth.
This was not as major as Mike's dream conflict, but he had been even more troubled after finding out about his father's absesnce. 2. In the beginning of the story, the main character, Mike, has a dream about being chased by a bear. He had been very paranoid and scared, and even had counselling from Mrs.Skinner at school. Later on, Mike found out that his father had been lost at sea during a mission to rescue a nearby skiff.
Pi was afraid to move, speak, or even look for supplies in the boat in fear of drawing Richard Parker’s unwanted attention. He developed a passive behaviour because he thought that was the only way to survive with the tiger. The change in lyrics from the first verse to the chorus also describes the change in mindset that Pi undergoes, showing how he goes from passive to aggressive. “I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar Louder, louder than a lion Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar” The shift in tone represents the shift in Pi’s attitude and behaviours, as he decides to take a stand and make it clear to Richard Park who the person in charge is. The roar spoken about in the song is similar to the whistle which Pi uses to train Richard Parker, using intimidation and territorial dominance.
I was wrong to think that the mangroves created some sort of movement to the islands because the author never states how the mangroves portray movement nor flow to the island. The author really describes the skill of survival the mangroves have in order to live on this island. In addition, there is no text to prove that D is the correct answer. Why B: B is clearly the best answer. In lines 1-2, the author describes the mangroves as “artists of the beautiful” because the circumstances are unique yet harsh on the island that they live on.
O'Brien creates an intentional paradox for his readers when he writes the violent, but grabbing story of Rat Kiley and then at the end of the story, tells the reader that the characters and events of the story did not happen just as he described them, but that they happened in a totally different way to other people. But he insists that the story is true. With this, O'Brien challenges the reader to discover the truth of the event. O'Brien gets the reader to figure out what fiction of this book is actually worth. Firstly, did O'Brien confuse the reader when he said that the events did not happen after the reader became involved in those events?
Huck questions why he has not turned in Jim because he wants to be what society depicts as good, but in reality, he does what he knows is right. While Huck is on the raft alone, he begins to question why he helps Jim escape while Miss Watson has done nothing wrong to him. Huck feels terrible but he cannot bring himself to pray that he can do the right thing. “I was trying to make my mouth say the right thing and the clean thing, and go and write to that nigger’s owner and tell where he was; but deep down in me I knowed it was a lie-and He knowed it. You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227).
When Pi is rescued he tells two different stories. One involves all animals and the other involves all people, Pi says they can believe whichever one they want. I think that the second story is the true one and Pi was actually in the life boat with other humans the whole time. In the second story Pi tells, he is with his mother, a French cook, and a sailor with a broken leg on the life boat. And in the first story Pi is with an orangutan, a zebra, a hyena and a tiger.
Bledsoe says to the narrator greatly help move the plot of the novel. First, the narrator sees that Dr. Bledsoe is not who he thought he was. The narrator once looked up to Dr. Bledsoe because he thought Dr. Bledsoe got to where he is through hard work, not by manipulating and going against what he likes. The narrator lost the only idol he had, and in a sense is now all alone. He has nobody to look up to or to get advice from.
When asked by insurance investigators what events happened while he was on his journey, Pi describes an awe inspiring, extraordinary story in which he finds himself stranded on a lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan, and a tiger named Richard Parker. Towards the end of the novel, when
