Wells, H. G. The Time Machine; an Invention. Cambridge, MA: R. Bentley, 1971. Print. Topic 2, Week 2 The most important paragraph in The Time Machine by H.G. Wells would be “The Time Traveler vanished three years ago. Up to the present he has not returned and when he does return he will find his home in the hands of strangers and his little gathering of auditors broken up forever. Filby has exchanged poetry for playwriting, and is a rich man --- as literary men go---- and extremely unpopular. The Medical Man is dead, the Journalist is in India, and the Psychologist has succumbed to paralysis. Some of the other men I used to meet there have dropped as completely out of existence as they, too, had traveled off upon some similar anachronisms. And so, ending in a kind of dead wall, the story of the Time Machine must remain for the present at least. Pages 215-216” I thought this was the most important paragraph, because if the Time Traveler ever comes back, he’d end up being in his home without anyone to talk to about the time machine, because he would have gatherings with these people, and talk about even when they didn’t believe it. I also think it’s great because obviously the narrator really does not believe the time machine is real. Because if the Time Traveler ever came back, he could just go back into the past and be back the day he left. Then, again the narrator says that “Some of the other men I used to meet there have dropped as completely out of existence as they,…
Intro to Lit.
The last three stories that we have read, “Araby”, “Paul’s Case”, and “The Red Convertible” all have themes and symbols that can somehow be connected to each other. One of the main things I noticed in all of the stories is that they all have one main thing that the short story focuses around; one main thing or idea that the main character seems almost obsessed with or is fascinated by throughout the whole story, until the end where that idea or thing or even…

Argument Log #1, Six Weeks 2
Billy O’Reilly, host of The O’Reilly Factor, is the primary speaker.
The argument is how much faith people have in this government and safe they feel in the country itself.
One of Bill O’Reilly’s techniques that he uses to make his argument stand out more is important use of diction that is happening throughout the video. For instance, incompetence…
ANOTHER log has fallen from a truck on an East Coast road and a neighbouring farmer says it is only a matter of time before someone is killed.
Peter Reeves returned to his farm on State Highway 35 yesterday morning to be greeted by his sons, who jokingly said there was a big stash of firewood on offer.
“When I realised that they meant a log had come off a truck, I went down to Pakuwai Bridge (between Whangara and Tolaga Bay) to see what was going on.”
A road worker manning traffic on the…
Pre-AP World Lit 5th Period
Everything has an easy way out. The easy way out of a bad hair day is throwing a hat on. The easy way out of cleaning is throwing everything under your bed. But for school, the easy way out is online classes. Taking online classes seems like such a good way to save time and money but really, it’s taking away a very important factor of learning; being hands-on. The point of having a real class with actual students and teachers is so you…

In the story the “Rules of the game” by Amy Tan we see a Chinese family where the parents were most likely born…
