    Desert Biome The desert is a biome or as a life zone, for example another biome would be tundra.

  • Normal Abnormal Individuals - 1,227 words
    Normal & Abnormal Individuals During the course of the last fifty years, society has changed significantly. In modern society a great emphasis is placed on individualism and diversity within a society. It is rare that an individual would be ridiculed or forced to change simply for not complying with what society views as normal. This has not always been the case though. The nineteen fifties were much different. This was an era of social conformity. The members of society who were intent on maintaining this social state ostracized individuals who were considered abnormal. Such abnormal individuals just simply accepted the fact that they were not part of this normal society. Because of society ...

  • One Flew Over The Cookoos Nest - 341 words
    One Flew Over The Cookoo's Nest One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest The first thing that struck me about this movie is that I didn't see much in the way of treatment or therapy. I saw the mentally ill being housed instead of being treated. I didn't feel that the nurses were interested in helping these people, but in controlling them. The therapy sessions weren't about therapy at all, but an opportunity for Nurse Ratchett to manipulate and intimidate her patients into submission. No one was allowed to have independent thoughts or feelings. Randall McMurphy takes all of his fellow patients at face value, expects no more than they can give. He tries to help them enjoy their lives, and find some hap ...

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest In, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", the main character is Randle P McMurphy. He sort of comes off as a New York tuff guy. In my opinion McMurphy is a hustler, considering his gambling and how he's always trying to manipulate other patients to his benefit. Chief Bromden is a six foot eight, half bread Indian. For years, Chief, "as McMurphy calls him", has fooled the staff and patients in the ward into thinking that he's deaf and dumb. Though it was by accident, McMurphy is the first person that Chief has spoken to in years. Throughout the book, Chief seems to open up to McMurphy more and more, inch by inch. Big Nurse is a picky b**ch. On the outside, she's a ...

  • One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest - 1,280 words
    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest This movie demonstrates much of what I despise about my fellow feeble-minded Americans. In this movie, I saw stereotypes galore, and almost every cliche in the book. For example, one voluntary patient is seeking therapy for his marital problems. It seems that he and his wife were having "sexual" problems. This ultimately leads everyone, patients and viewers alike, to believe that this man must be gay. As if this weren't enough, we have to have the "blind-deaf-and-dumb-guy", and of course, he's foreign! The central character in this drama is Randal McMurphy. Mac is a new patient at the mental institution. He was transferred from a nearby prison. He seems to hav ...
