LIFE AND LETTERS about the writer’s novel, “A Clockwork Orange.” The writer first published the book “A Clockwork Orange” in 1962. Nearly ten years after its publication, its title and content became known to millions because of Stanley Kubrick’s very close film interpretation. The writer first heard the expression “as queer as a clockwork orange” in a London pub before the Second World War. It’s an old Cockney slang phrase, implying a queerness or madness so extreme as to subvert nature. In 1961, the writer began to write a novel about curing juvenile delinquency. He had read somewhere that it would be a good idea to liquidate the criminal impulse through aversion therapy; he was appalled. He began to work out the implications of this notion in a brief work of fiction. The hero of both the book and the film is a young thug called Alex. He rejoices in articulate language and even invents a new form of it; he loves beauty, which he finds in Beethoven’s music above everything; he is aggressive. With his companions, he terrorizes the streets of a great city at night. The young antihero is arrested, and the Home Office or Ministry of the Interior introduces a form of aversion therapy guaranteed to eliminate criminal propensities forever. Alex is injected with a substance that brings on extreme nausea, and the onset of nausea is deliberately associated with the enforced viewing of films about violence. Soon he cannot contemplate violence without feeling desperately sick. He is forced to walk a tightrope of imposed “goodness.” The state has gone too far: it has entered a region beyond its covenant with the citizen; it has closed to its victim a whole world of non-moral goodness. What the writer was trying to say was that it is better to be bad of one’s free will than to be good through scientific brainwashing. B. F. Skinner’s book “Beyond Freedom and Dignity” came out at the very time that “A Clockwork Orange” first appeared on the screen, ready to demonstrate the advantages of what we may call beneficent brainwashing. Given the right positive inducements, Skinner argues, we shall all become better citizens, submissive to a state that
substances. Some are more porous than others. The 3 materials I will be using are paper, plastic and silk or nylon.
Each material will create a different drag when falling. A falling object with a lot of drag will travel at a lower speed than an object with little drag. This is because the air drag (air resistance) opposes the falling object’s motion.
In Newton’s third law a force is a push or a pull on an object. When an object moves through the air it has to move the air molecules out of the…
Lab II, Problem 1: Mass and Acceleration of a Falling Ball
September 29, 2013
Physics 1301W, Professor: Paul Haines, TA: Aaberg, Arthur A
Team members: Yutong Li, Johnathan, Henry
The mass of the ball should not have any influences on the acceleration when the ball is in free- falling. Balls in same size but not the same masses will fall down in the same height.

of Life as an audience member the characters Kate and Aunt Ola stood out the most to me when it came to noticing the Laban qualities of movement. Such qualities include direct/indirect, quick/slow, heavy/light, rising/falling, advancing/retreating, widening/narrowing, and bound/free. Other key movements to take note of are a characters body lead, area of tension, and the character’s center. Kate was a news reporter for Life Magazine. She was assigned to write an article on these three women in a small…
that made fundamental contributions to the sciences of motion, and astronomy. One of his greatest contributions to science was emphasis on experimentation, basic part of the scientific method (Chapter 1.2). His formulation of inertia and the law of falling bodies marked the beginning of a fundamental change in the study of motion. Galileo questioned Aristotle’s view that objects fell because of their “earthiness” and that the heavier, or more earthy, an object, the faster it would fall in seeking its…

Snow Falling on Cedars is the movie illustrates about the murder trial of Kabuo Miyamoto, an American of Japanese descent charged with murdering Carl Heine, a fellow salmon fisherman. The trial really provides a framework for an analysis of the effect that the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II had on the people of San Piedro Island, a small island in the Pacific Northwest. This analysis will focus about family processes, values, socialization of child rearing, healthcare…

What Was Galileo’s Experiment?
Galileo conducted an experiment to see whether an objects rate of decent was really proportional to the mass of that same object (Aristotle’s theory). Galileo proved the theory false by conducting an experiment that involved an inclined…
time I'm gonna take the crown
Without falling down, down, down
Pretty hurts, we shine the light on whatever's worse
Perfection is a disease of a nation, pretty hurts, pretty hurts
Pretty hurts, we shine the light on whatever's worse
You're tryna fix something but you can't fix what you can't see
It's the soul that needs the surgery

On Free Choice of the will: St. Augustine’s View on Evil
This paper examines St. Augustine’s view on evil. St. Augustine believed that God made a perfect world, but that God's creatures turned away from God of their own free will and that is how evil originated in the world. Augustine assumes that evil cannot be properly said to exist at all, he argues that the evil, together with that suffering which is created as punishment for sin, originates in the free nature of the will of all creatures. According…
