Anthony Burgess: Deeming Honor of Recognition We are gifted with a great opportunity as well as having the privilege, capability and means in exposing ourselves in a plethora of artful literature. Our freedom to choose what we read, our individual experiences to relate throughout in addition to our inter-feelings, we may develop our own interpretations of a story. With any given literacy we’ll comprehend and draw our own conclusions by the way of critical thinking. As a result, everyone does not view a single story the same way or draws the same conclusions to a stories ending. It’s up to the reader to “see” how it should play out. However, amid such freedom and range evolves readers of criticism and/or bias opinions towards various styles of literature. An author whose work has been of much negative criticism could be due to a reader of some ignorance towards the understanding of the context. Deficient to connect with a piece of literature, judgments of society, lack of critical thinking and understanding makes for a category of controversial authors. Among controversial authors’ such as, J.D. Salinger’s The Cather in the Rye, Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code, J.K. Rowling’s The Harry Potter Series, Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Hasan, 2008), George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, so is Anthony Burgess’s most controversial novel A Clockwork Orange. Over the past fifty years, readers have deemed Burgess’s novel taboo disgusted with the unbolted image of sex, drugs, violence, and politics. In result, his work had been banned from several locations internationally. Meanwhile, open-minded readers will consider Anthony’s work as a piece of art, creative, raw and extraordinary, over more they can come to some understanding of the underlining thoughts Burgess had towards politics, discipline,…...

Casey Anthony

...in Ohio on March 19, 1986, Casey Anthony stepped into the national spotlight after the suspicious disappearance of her daughter, Caylee Anthony. As her story unfolded, many believed she was unquestionably guilty. The jury, however, felt differently. Anthony was acquitted of the murder charge, but she found herself loathed by the general public. EARLY YEARS Born on March 19, 1986, in Warren, Ohio, Casey Anthony was one of two children of Cindy Anthony and George Anthony, who worked in law enforcement. Casey was a bright, personable young girl, with friends and what many thought was an ordinary American family. However, friends say that a pattern of lying began when Casey was in high school. Cindy and George attended Casey's graduation, along with Casey's grandparents—only to discover that she was several credits short of graduating. Casey had stopped attending classes toward the end of the school year, but led her family to believe she would walk with the graduating class. When she was 19, Casey gave her family yet another shock. She had put on weight, and her parents suspected she was pregnant. Casey denied it, claiming she was a virgin. Seven months into her pregnancy, she told her parents the truth. The identity of the baby's father, however, remained a mystery. Casey pointed to different men, including her fiancé, Jesse Grund, as well as a young man she had dated previously, who had died in a car crash. On August 9, 2005, Caylee Anthony was born.

Susan B Anthony

...Susan B. Anthony The Quaker influence--Hers was a Quaker family. The Quakers believed in education and Susan received excellent training. They believed in hard work, and Susan learned a strong work ethic from an early age. They believed in generosity and charity. They believed in peace, temperance and justice, and this was to affect her adult concerns about injustices toward women, as well as social problems that come from alcohol. The Quakers also believed that men and women were equal partners before God, and this must have had an important influence on her belief in women's rights. The family influence--Susan B. Anthony was raised with Quaker discipline and austerity, but there was an independent spirit that came from both her father and mother. Her father, Daniel, was devout, but he went outside the church to marry the woman he loved. Her mother, Lucy, had loved music and dancing as a girl, but she gave this up to accept the rules of her husband’s Quaker faith. In her spirit, however, her mother never forgot her light-hearted youth. Daniel Anthony was concerned about social justice. When he ran his own cotton mill, he avoided buying slave-raised cotton. This lesson was not lost on Susan. The move to New York--In Massachusetts, her father's cotton mill was very successful, and he was soon asked to manage mills at Batten Ville, New York. The family moved there in 1826 when Susan was 6 years old. Soon the family was in a large brick home. Education--Susan's......

Brutus and Anthony

...Brutus's purpose was to control the crowd as was Anthony's. Brutus began his speach with a hostile crowd against him as a murderer of the popular Julius Caesar. When Anthony spoke the crowd had already been swayed by Brutus' words to a point of view opposite Anthony's and were now openly hostile to him. Both men spoke eloquently and effectively and their moment before the crowd was the key moment in their political lives. Differences: Brutus spoke first, Anthony had the last word. Brutus spoke directly in abstract terms about an unproven and unprovable shortcoming in Caesar's character and the threat it posed to the future of Rome. Anthony spoke ironically and sarcastically about the recent murder of the butchered man lain out before them: as concrete a subject matter imaginable. Brutus, as one of the senate assassins, had a lot more to lose: his reputation and life. Anthony had a lot less personally at stake. Brutus concentrated on one theme and directly spoke it: "Caesar was ambitious" and somehow that ambition was bad for Rome. By stopping over-ambitious Caesar, the assassins carried out a great and noble service for Rome and the people at the funeral. Anthony facing a hostile crowd that now considered Caesar the great tyrant as propagandized by Brutus had to pick his words carefully and hide his true purpose. "I've come to bury Caesar not to praise him." Ultimately both men swayed the crowd but Anthony's speech carried the day. When he was done, no one......

He was a scrany boy who joined the wrestling team, " he was willful and assures by nature, his childhood" was a nightmare he was taunted which made him self-conscious. It was just a way for him to come out of his shell, he didn't really focus on being the best wrestler. Going on to sophomore year in high school he started to improve.

Susan B Anthony

...31, 2015 Susan Brownell Anthony was born in Adams, Massachusetts on February 15, 1820. Her family was Quaker and they had long activist traditions. She then became a teacher for fifteen years and after that she became active in temperance (susanbanthonyhouse.org). Temperance is something that is the act of personal restraint (en.wikipedia.org). Simply because she was a woman, she was not allowed to lead or even speak at the temperance rallies. Because of this, and having befriended Elizabeth Cady Stanton is what led her to become part of the women’s rights movement in 1852. Not long after this she dedicated her life to women’s rights and suffrage. Most of the subjects she campaigned for were the abolition of slavery, the right for women to own their own property and retain their earnings, and she also advocated for women’s labor organizations. Even though there were people against what she was doing, she ignored the abuse and the oppositions and went and traveled, lectured, and canvassed across the nation for the vote (susanbanthonyhouse.org) She had many accomplishments and trials as her part as an abolitionist. The whole Anthony family moved to Rochester, and shortly after that the whole family became involved in the anti-slavery movement. They even had the anti-slavery Quaker meetings at their farm almost every Sunday (susanbanthonyhouse.org). They were even sometimes joined by Frederick Douglas and William Lloyd Garrison. Anthony had two brothers, Daniel......

After she moved to Rochester in 1845, her family became part of the anti-slavery movement.

Significance of Burgess Shale

...The Burgess Shale What is the geological significance of the Burgess Shale: • The Burgess Shale is famous for its fossils of soft-bodied organisms. It is exceptional to find complete animals preserved, especially ones that had only soft tissues and no mineralized structures. (Typically it is only the hard parts of organisms - shell or bone - that become fossils.) • When this happens palaeontologists can gain a vast amount of ecological and biological information about a particular time in Earth's history. The Burgess Shale is such a site, providing the best window on animal communities during the end of the Cambrian Explosion. When was it deposited: • The story of the Burgess Shale begins more than 500 million years ago. Shortly before the Burgess Shale animals lived, there was an evolutionary “Big-Bang” called the Cambrian Explosion. • These fossils are approximately 530 million years old, and represent an array of life-forms present during the early-middle years of the Cambrian period (545-495 million years ago). What kind of organisms were fossilised: Approximately 120 species are found in the Burgess Shale, including familiar forms as well as several species belonging to previously unknown phyla. Some of the fossilized species are members of groups (phylum) that still exist. These species can be categorized as members of the phyla Porifora (sponges), Annelida (segmented marine flatworms), Arthropoda (insects, crabs, and trilobites), and Echinodermata (sea...

Anthony Bourdain

...Nasty Bits by Anthony Bordain is a book consisting of his random thoughts throughout all his trips. It is composed of 5 sections; salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and umami. Each one has a different tone to it even though they are all random. Only food and travel seem to connect the sections and stories together. Salty, sour, and bitter all seem to have an angry or annoyed tone to them. Sweet has stories that are a little better in tone and umami is just stories that he wants to talk about. The reader can tell Bourdain’s style in this book right away. It isn’t the traditional story book with one main focus. The style is telling the reader how he feels and telling little random stories. For being a non-fiction writer this style of book is interesting and effective. The reader can now understand how he feels during his trips. It allows readers to also see how his personality really is. In this book his personality comes out when he gets angry or happy about certain things. One noticeable thing about this book is his humor. It is kind of a dark humor and he makes fun of a lot of people. Some examples are when he is mad at fast food chains and calls them the evildoers (Bourdain 13). He also talks about a fat guy who takes up his whole seat and he complains about it (Bourdain 12)If he accepts any consequences with his humor than he can use it. He means what he says and people don’t need to be offended by what he says. Bourdain can probably take any mean jokes targeted at him so......
