Building A Bridge The Grapes of Wrath is truly an inspiring piece of literature that delivers many different insights into life. One thing that stuck out for me that I could relate to was how the Joad family was a very tight knit and close family. They knew that in the tough times they were facing that they would still have each other, and were very thankful for that. No matter who died, or who left, the remaining members of the family still stayed connected and close with each other. This really makes me think about how in my life, no matter what happens, I will always be able to rely on and connect with my family. I have learned in my life that sometimes things don’t end up they way you expect. Relationships with friends and girlfriends will come and go, but in the end, I will always have my family. Ma Joad shows this perfectly when she says to Tom, “Why, Tom - us people will go on livin’ when all them people is gone. Why, Tom, we’re the people that live. They ain’t gonna wipe us out. Why, we’re the people - we go on.” (359). It’s nice to know there will always be someone there supporting you that will always be able to help you get through things, just like how the Joad family always had each others backs through thick and thin. It makes me reflect on and prioritize who is really important in my life. Another thing this book makes me think about is how spoiled and privileged everyone is these days, myself included. So many families were working and doing whatever
Discrimination and conformity are used to make people feel like they do not belong to society. I have chosen to study the theme ‘how characters are challenged by society through the effects of conformity and discrimination’. This theme is shown through the films Dead Poets Society directed by Peter Weir and Billy Elliot directed by Stephen Daldy. Also in the novel Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildread D. Taylor and the short story The Other Foot by Ray Bradbury.
In the film Dead Poets Society…

The Brooklyn Bridge was built to connect New York City to Brooklyn. It is located across the East River. The total length of the bridge is 6016 feet. Before the bridge was built, people used to have to cross the river by ferry. The Brooklyn Bridge was the first long-span suspension bridge. It was used to carry cars and also the first to use steel. It is also one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States, which has been serving New Yorkers for nearly 125 years.
trees and the buildings all keep our focus moving down the bridge. I think there are many depth cues at work in this picture as well. For instance, the spacing from the light posts to the buildings gives us a sense of the width of the river. The lighting helps us to separate the objects from the background. And finally the texture of the buildings, light posts and bridge give us a feel of what it would really be like to be there. I can imagine walking barefoot on the slated bridge. As for visual…

second, third, and fourth floor were packed with visitors as they watched over the active lobby, which was also full of people. The fourth floor bridge was suspended directly over the second floor bridge, with the third floor walkway several meters away from the other two. Suddenly bang happened and forth floor bridge collapsed on the second floor bridge and then both collapsed on the lobby. This misguided construction disaster created so much of violation in public by killing 114 people. So here…
The Romans were good at building things. One thing that they were good at was building bridges. The very first bridges were made of wood and had arch like shapes to them. The later bridges were made of stone. These bridges were very sturdy and very strong. Some of the bridges that are built today are modeled from the early Roman bridges.
The Romans are also known for building aqueducts. Some of the areas had hard time getting water so they came up…

Describe the bridge and how it distributes the forces acting on it. Including an explanation of what makes this type different then beam bridge.
A cantilever bridge could be said to be a variation on the basic beam bridge. The roadway of the bridge is held in place by cantilevers, which are long structures, or arms, projecting out into the water, but which are anchored on only one end. A diving board is a good example of a cantilever: although anchored on only one end, it can…
incredible advance in technology and design because the cars in the streets and the buildings look more modern. It also looks like the buildings in the right side of the street were demolished because in the Levere picture there are trees instead of the building in the Abbott picture. This could be because of the several renovations done in the past 6 decades.
On the other hand, the view of the Manhattan Bridge at the end of the street still persists and it is still as breath taking as in the Abbott…
