The story begins with a boy who is playing in a little kids pool. His mother, who we are told has been trying to love him, but still can't seem to be able to, asks the little boy why he has such awful behaviour and sends him inside to get changed. Without saying a word he goes straight to see his robot teddy bear who speaks to him and helps guide him when he has to make a decision. The poor boy had always thought his mom didn't like him, they never talked or did anything together. So he tries to write her a letter to express his feelings but he never knows how to start it off. So one day, feeling like he doesn't belong in the house, he decides to run away with his teddy bear. Later on , the woman's husband returns home with his new creation, the synthetic serving man, which consists of a human like robot with synthetic flesh who acts just like a human. When he arrives, his wife, overjoyed, tells him that they've just one the parent lottery, meaning that they can now have a child. That is when we find out that their son David , was in fact simply just a robot to make mrs.swinton less lonely. This story demonstrates that no matter how real something fake seems, it is never the same feeling than if it were real. The little boy was only a creation by the woman's husband to make her less lonely, she might have been slightly happy , but deep inside she knew that it wasn't her child. She knew it wasn't a real person , it was more of a toy to her. When she was bored she would play with him until one day she got tired of her toy, that's when she started leaving the toy in its toy box. Which is the reason why the little boy David is unhappy. An overcrowded world is the ideal place in which to be lonely. An interesting quote which represents the woman in this story exactly. Mrs. Swinton is a lonely person, even though their society is going through an overpopulation crisis. She is described as an almost perfect woman, with her graceful body and beautiful thoughts. However she can't seem to be happy in a world filled with robotic humans , who are built to rid people…

Typically a trouble-maker, a jokester, and a rebel in high school, carried over as he began the Yippie movement, a series of protests and events targeting United States government.

‘This Is It’ - Writing task’
Michael Joseph Jackson (29th August 1958 – 25th June 2009) was known as the ‘king of pop’ (www.michealjackson.com/uk). He was an amazing singer, musician and performer. Michael planned a series of fifty comeback concerts from July 2009 until March 2010, in the O2 Arena in London. Due to his death at the end of June 2009, the concerts never happened but some video footage of the rehearsals has been made into a film in memory of him. I will look at the film ‘This is…
from a dictionary pretty much sum up how this book will immerse you into the chaotic world of drugs Mark managed to make a break from.
I caught sight of this book when a colleague commented that she was unable to put it down. As it had been a while since I'd read anything worthwhile, I thought I'd give it a blast. If you've read any of my movie reviews you'll know that it takes me a few sittings to accomplish a viewing...the same can be said for books - no matter how intriguing the storyline…
Station which are both essentially dead horses at this point, and focusing on more advanced and fruitful creations such as a new type of shuttle capable of taking astronauts to mars, more efficient and safer aircraft to secure our superiority in the aerospace field and even meteorological aspects to better help us understand and perhaps predict natural catastrophes like hurricanes or tsunamis. Though NASA will not be launching shuttles any time soon, this is not the end of our presences in orbit; in an…

A Helping Hand
Everyone believes the saying that you are in control of your own future to a certain
degree. This saying is pretty much accurate, as long as you are a law abiding citizen. The world
is not so black and white. I believe that we live in the world of different shades of greys. Nothing
in life is a simple as a yes/no or right/wrong. People should be able…
life, but then you grow up, you start thinking with you’re own ideas and begin hearing other opinions and philosophies. It gets kind of confusing and over whelming when this happens and then you don’t even know what to think.
David Foster Wallace, an American novelist, brings up a good point about how we think that can relate to this uncertainty,
Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose…
we have to face how we will be
able to help these poor homeless people around san diego county. But if we don’t do
anything to help them, “the cost of doing nothing $1,500,00 for 15 chronic homeless
(over the next 1.5 years).”(home again), and this is something we need take action soon
before it’s too late.
We can’t always judge someone by what you hear and assume. Homeless people
are the most that get judge. Assuming they’ve done drugs to cause them to waist all
their money to become…
have computers like we did now. This is a disadvantage to our grandparents because instead of having to send mail that takes days to get where it needs to go we can just email the person and it goes to them right away. Technology has helped in our favor over our great grandparents.
Sanitation has also gotten a lot better over the years. The way that plumbing is set up now is far superior to how it was back when my great grandparents were my age. I think that this has made the life expectancy…
