Topic: Hunting with Dogs Running for your life, but yet knowing deep inside you that you're going to be ripped limb from limb. The last thing you hear is your screams for help and the sound of cheering by a group of humans. The last thing you see is your killer's face covered in your blood. Some people call this morally wrong act of cruelty a 'sport'. It is turning into a more common 'sport' around the country and it needs to stop"¦not for the distant future, but NOW! Reports and tests show that 96.9% of animals hunted and then killed by dogs die a slow painful death due to their atrocious injuries. The other 3.1% of animals killed by dogs die from exhaustion and die more quickly from its injuries. Either way the hunted animal dies from the effects of being hunted. Surely this has to stop? "Why" do you say? Well 'why' do hunting packs only hunt foxes, deer's, hares and minks? I'll tell you why, its because these animals don't defend themselves against the hounds. They aren't strong enough to attack back. They just run, run as far as they can go, until the hounds catch up and kill them. Easy targets. More animals hunted in one go. Quick and 'effective' games. If this isn't cruelty to animals, then I don't know and can't see, what is! RSPCA, CPHA and LACS are the most highly praised organisations that try to prevent these hunting games from carrying on. They try to their highest ability to try and ban hunting with dogs, but sadly the government and the House of Lords are too strong and believe this morally wrong blood sport is perfectly 'normal'. They say the sport can go ahead because it keeps control over the numbers of Foxes, Deer's, Hares and Minks. However, studies show that the number of those animals doesn't need controlling and could decrease at alarming rates in the near future. If they thought this sport helps keep control and that it's the only way, well they're wrong! Scientists show that the only rightful way to keep control over the numbers of animals is not to hunt them with dogs but to shoot them with a type of tranquilliser which would cause the animal to die a quiet, non painful death. This is kind to the animal without the outrage of a bloodthirsty dog ripping them limb from limb. Are the government and the House of Lords being stubborn? Scared to face up to the situation and the blood sports team members? Among the supporters of hunting there is a fear that if it is banned there will be a severe shortage of jobs in rural areas. However I feel that this argument does not stand up in today's modern world with its very low overall unemployment rates. In addition to this the rapid increase in opportunities for working at home coupled with the advances in computer technology and the associated training courses available make it easier to replace any lost jobs. "Hunting is natural. Humans have been hunting since the moment we were created, so why stop now?" says Mr Robert Burns, a farmer from Somerset. Everybody aggress initially we were barbaric in nature but surely we're suppose to have progressively become more civilised. Or have we? Picture the scene: You're looking for food for your loved one and your 4 children. You hear a noise, which you've heard before, but you carry on hunting for food for your family. Then suddenly out of the bushes jump 15 hounds, thirsty for blood, your blood. You run until you can run no more; you collapse. Fighting for your breath, you try to get up but before you know it you're being ripped apart. You're dead. Your body is covered in blood and taken away by a human on a horse. Your skin to make clothes. Your flesh to be eaten by your killers. Your bones crushed to mark various items. Your family is left to starve. Your family is dead. But worse the, perpetrators revel in it. The question we need to ask is, who are the real animals, the Foxes, Deer's, Hares and Minks, or US? Let us make positive steps to change this situation by getting the law changed to ban hunting with dogs.

A good ghost story depends upon...A good ghost story depends upon the creation of atmosphere and the build up of suspense. Show how these two ingredients are important in at least two ghost stories Ghost stories are popular with people because we enjoy being frightened. This feeling is created by the build of suspense and tension in the stories, making us excited and jumpy, letting our mind Create mysterious thoughts and what will happen next. An example of this is in the "Blair Witch Project". It is set at night in an eerie forest and the characters are surrounded by trees, so someone could be there watching them but they can't see anything moving, they can only hear the noises of things around them, rustling in the bushes. In the film "What Lies Beneath" mysterious faces keep appearing around the house of a young girl, who the man of the house had a secret past with her. The two ghost stories I have read are "The Red Room" and "The Demon Lover", are quite different from each other, but both include similar typical ingredients of a ghost story. Typical ingredients of a ghost story include, the feeling of panic and being trapped, isolation and loneliness, dark weird rooms, eerie music, an evil history, a person alone, large old house with a Gothic type theme and there are many more. Again the film "What Lies Beneath" has a good example of evil history, as a man is haunted by a girl he had an affair with and then murdered. "The Haunting" also has an evil history, as everyone who lives in this house, where the story is set, dies. Examples of typical ingredients of a ghost story in The Red Room and The Demon Lover include the feeling of being alone and isolated. In The Red Room, this feeling occurs when the narrator is in the red room and all the candles are being blown out, gradually reducing the amount of light in the room. And in the demon lover it is where Mrs Drover is alone in her house and the desolated streets. The time, in which the two stories are set in are different. "The Red Room" is set at night in an old, Gothic style, where as "The Demon Lover" is set in the day, in the Second World War. Both of the main characters also get a feeling of panic and being trapped, e.g. in "The Red Room" when the narrator is falling over and tripping up and walking into objects, when all the candles have been blown out and the example in "The Demon Lover" is where Mrs Drover is being driven off in the taxi, screaming and trying to get out. The houses in each story also have a resemblance, because in "The Red Room" the story is set in an old, eerie, isolated, that has "Chilly, echoing passages" and "The Demon Lover" is set in a sparse, un-inhabited area, in a cold, empty house. Another example is 'strange happenings'. In "The Red Room" it is weird when all the candles get blown out at once and wont relight and in "The Demon Lover" it is where the letter from 'k' is on the table in the hall. This is weird because there is no way that it could have got there, unless someone broke into the house, but there are no signs of that and no one had entered the house whilst she ad been away. "The Demon Lover" is set in the time of the Second world war, and is about a woman called Mrs Drover, who after being forced to the country, due to the bombing, she returns home to collect some of her remaining possessions, when she finds a letter from a long, lost, lover who is supposedly dead. This makes her remember her past with him, when she agreed to marry him before he went away to war 1st World War. Later on he was reported missing, supposedly dead. The thought of him now makes her worry, so she orders a taxi to get to the train station, but as she gets into the taxi, she sees the same face that she saw all them years ago, of the soldier she had agreed to marry. Mrs Drover tries to escape from the taxi but the doors are locked. The taxi driver then speeds off down the sparse streets with Mrs Drover clawing at the window in an effort to escape. "She continued to scream freely and to beat with her gloved hands on the glass all round as the taxi, accelerating without mercy, made off with her into the hinterland of deserted streets". "The Red Room" is set in an old house, inhabited only by three old people. The narrator of the story, whose name is not given, is at the house because there is supposed to be a ghost there. He is very sceptical about this and in an effort to make his point he offers to spend a night in 'The Red Room'. After 5recieving instructions on how to get to the red room, as the old people wont show him the way, he begins to make his way down the long, winding, cold passages of Lorraine Castle. As he reaches the room, he starts to examine it, putting candles in all the dark coves in the room, until there are no dark places left in the room. He begins to feel a bit nervous, after only being in the room for a short time. "I was in a state of considerable nervous tension, although to my reason there was no adequate cause for the condition". Candles suddenly start to blow out and normal objects in the room start to look life-like as shadows are cast across the room. The narrator tries to relight the candles, but as he lights one, another goes out. Then as they all go out he is left in total darkness, unable to see anything and as he tries to find the door, he starts walking into things and falling over objects, thinking that it is a ghost doing this, until he knocks himself unconscious. When awaking from his accident he, is confronted by the old people peering over him. They tell him that they found him outside the room, with blood seeping from his head and mouth. He then gives his own explanation of what it is that is in the room, saying that it is fear. "There is no ghost there at all; but worse, far worse"¦fear". Suspense is also used in the two stories to create the atmosphere. The term 'suspense', means, "A state of anxious uncertainty, e.g. the film kept us in suspense about the murderers identity". Writers of ghost stories keep you in suspense by building up tension. The tension needs to be built up and has to keep rising, but not too much, other wise it spoils the story and it is then too predictable, so there needs to be a break i.e. go to something else and then return to the tension. In "The Red Room" and "The Demon Lover", suspense is deliberately built up throughout the stories. Suspense is built up at the start of the two stories, which is good as it is what makes a book hard to put down. A sense of death and mystery is made preset, with quotes like "It was your own choosing" from "The Red Room" and "Dead air" from "The Demon Lover" "The Red Room" isn't too predictable, so the suspense is not lost. The old people add to it as well, as you are left wondering if they have got anything to do with the mystery of Lorraine castle, because they wouldn't show the narrator the way to the room. Suspense is then built when the narrator is investigating the room, because we are wondering what there is to investigate and then suspense is built again at the end, where we are left wondering whether there really is a ghost or if it is just the narrators imagination. In "The Demon Lover", the story is a bit more predictable, but it does have its good points, i.e. When Mrs Drover finds the newly placed letter, when no one has entered the house whilst she has been away. Just the fact that she's a middle class woman by her self in an empty house, on an empty street, builds up the suspense. Suspense is built all the way through the story, but I think the ending is a bit of a disappointment and is too predictable, but the fact that the writer leaves you wondering where the taxi driver is going helps build the suspense. The endings of ghost stories are a major part of them, they are what 'tops off' the suspense. The endings of "The Red Room" and "The Demon Lover" are both different, but the reader is left wondering, what happened and what is going to happen. In my own personal opinion, I think "The Red Room" has the better ending. I think this because the story line builds it up to finish it off well. You are left in a state of mystery, wondering whether there is really a ghost or if it's someone playing a trick on him. The suspense before the ending isn't built up, too much or too less and the story isn't too predictable. Where as "The Demon Lover" isn't as dramatic and exciting and the story line is quite predictable. Despite the fact that the ending is quite good, it doesn't live up to its full expectations, although this is just my opinion. We are left wondering at the end about what has happened to Mrs Dover, where has the taxi driver taken her? Did he take her away because he was getting revenge as she married someone else? These are all un-answered questions about what happened. I personally, do like ghost stories that scare me, because it makes me feel excited and my imagination runs wild. I think ghost stories set in the modern age are scarier because it makes them seem more life-like, making you think these weird happenings, are really true and could actually happen. There are different endings to ghost stories as some lave you wondering what is going to happen, but some follow through and show you what happens. I think the cut short ending is most effective, that way your mind still wonders, but if it shows you the very end, it sort of spoils it, as your mind is cleared of these thoughts, so there isn't as much excitement and it makes the story less scary. My imagination is triggered by mysterious happenings and ghosts coming back to haunt people. If the story is set In this day and age, it adds to the realism. A good example of this is in the film "What Lies Beneath". Other people may think differently about this, as they have their own, different opinions, but these are what I think.   

A good ghost story depends upon the creation of atmosphere and the build up of suspense. Show how these two ingredients are important in at least two ghost stories Ghost stories are popular with people because we enjoy being frightened. This feeling is created by the build of suspense...

In this essay I will... In this essay I will be discussing the relationship between Catherine and Eddie and how it changes during the play "A View From The Bridge ". Poverty in Italy was a big issue in the late 1940's. even though there was nice beautiful scenery, getting work there was very hard. As Rodolfo says when Catherine suggests to move to Italy together on page 43 and 44, he reply's "happier, what would you eat? You can't cook the view". The members of the community of Redhook, Brooklyn are very close, they look out for each other. Redhook is primarily illegal immigrants, who had moved to Redhook because of lack of unemployment in Italy. Miller chose this topic to base his play because he himself was a dockworker living in Redhook, Brooklyn, his parents were immigrants into the united states. He was from a Italian background. This is a modern version of a Greek tragedy. Catherine is Eddies niece in the play. At the beginning of the play, Eddie treats Catherine like his own daughter. When Catherine first enters the scene Eddies initial reaction to what Catherine is wearing which was a skirt, he advises her to pull it down because he knows what the men are like in Redhook, he is very protective. Eddie says, quote, "Katie, I promised your mother on her deathbed, I'm responsible for you"¦" on page six. This tells us that he cares for her. Eddie portrays himself at the beginning of the play as a role model father and husband. Catherine is very naïve and believes things which are told to her. She's young and attractive, and she likes to be the centre of attention. Eddie on the other hand has a split personality, sometimes he can be a really sweet and loving father figure and other times he just releases rage inside him which he wants to let out. When Marco and Rodolfo come to stay with Beatrice, Eddie and Catherine, Eddies attitude begins to change. He becomes even more protective over Catherine than he already is and becomes very defensive. On page 22, Catherine says to Rodolfo, " you like sugar", Rodolfo reply's, " sugar? Yes! I like sugar very much". Rodolfo isn't implying that he likes sugar literally, he means it in a dirty way. Eddie notice the tone in which Rodolfo speaks to Catherine and immediately cuts in and says to Catherine in an agitated tone, "its after eight". Eddie is not only aggravated at the fact that they are late, but the fact they went out in the first place. When Eddie got annoyed at Catherine and Rodolfo, Beatrice also notice the change in Eddies character. She starts to become jealous but she doesn't let on because Eddies is treating Catherine more like a wife than eh treats Beatrice. At one stage in Act 1, Beatrice says smiling " ah, go on, you're jus jealous". She says that like she's joking but inside she knows that Eddie is slightly jealous of Rodolfo. Beatrice thinks Catherine is a threat towards her relationship with Eddie. She confronts Eddie and asks him, " when am I gonna be a wife again, Eddie?" when Beatrice asked this Eddie tried to avoid the subject and steps back using the excuse that, he " don't feel good". Slowly, slowly Eddie is pushing Beatrice away. Beatrice comments on how she saw Catherine in the bathroom when Eddie was shaving in his underwear, she tell Catherine she's no longer twelve anymore she cannot through herself at Eddie. Beatrice says on page 30 to Catherine, "I know, honey. But if you act like a baby he be treatin' you like a baby". she trying to tell Catherine to grow up a bit and act mature because she is around grown men. Catherine doesn't seem to want to know and refuses to believe the idea even came into Beatrice's head. Her ignorance take the best of her. Near the ending of Act 1, Eddie, Catherine, Beatrice, Rodolfo and Marco are all sitting in the living room, when Catherine decides to get up and put a record on the phonograph; 'Paper Doll' plays, Catherine flushed with revolt builds up the courage and asks Rodolfo if he wants to dance, Eddie freezes at this moment in time at first Rodolfo refuses but then stiffly excepts. As the couple dance, the other three are having a conversation about Rodolfo. When Marco tell "B" and Eddie Rodolfo cooks. Eddie speaks in a sarcastic way, " he a cook, too!". Eddie is trying to imply that Rodolfo is "gay". After a little while Rodolfo and Catherine stop dancing. Eddies becomes very annoyed when Catherine complements Rodolfo, he starts twisting the newspaper unconsciously in a tight roll. He becomes so angry inside he rips the paper in two, he gets up and confronts Marco. Eddie offers a boxing match with Marco, but Marco refuses at first, then he agrees to take him up on a challenge. At first its just a light boxing match but then Eddie becomes more serious and aggressive, this is when Beatrice and jumps in and stops him. Rodolfo grabs Catherine hand and requests that she dances with him. Eddie at this stage of the play is very angry and wants to get back at Rodolfo in some way or another. Marco gets angry because of Eddies reaction towards the boxing match and decides to get even. He challenges Eddie to lift a chair up with one hand kneeling down. Eddie thinking he can do it try's to lift the chair, he disappointedly fails. Marco becomes face to face with Eddies, you can see the tension building. Marco lifts the chair above Eddie like a weapon, he has a glare of warning on his face; this is to show he is not afraid. The warning turns into a smile of triumph. Eddie starts to grow anguish when Catherine comes out from the bedroom, adjusting her dress at the beginning of Act 2. Eddie knows that Rodolfo and Catherine have just had sex but still says sarcastically, " Rodolfo makin' you a dress?". Seeing Rodolfo come out of the bedroom makes Eddies arm jerk slightly in shock. When Rodolfo nods testingly, Eddie becomes angry and tell Rodolfo to leave. Catherine immediately turns and walks towards the bedroom, when Eddie grabs her she tells him she need to get out of there. Eddie grabs Rodolfo and kisses him, Eddies is trying to prove that Rodolfo is gay. Catherine is shouting telling him to get off. Catherine pleads to Eddie and tell him she is not a baby anymore. Catherine at this stage is very angry and scared she just want to find a way to get out of there. Eddie goes to visit Alfieri, he tell Alfieri that he want to ring the immigration officers but something is holding him back. He tell Alfieri how angry he is and will do anything to get rid of them. Alfieri warns Eddie not to ring the immigration officers but Eddie ignores him and rings. Eddie anonymously rings and tell the bureau where Marco and Rodolfo are. Eddie goes home and finds only Beatrice sitting there. In a surprised way he says, "where is everybody?", at first "B" doesn't answer but then says how she's moving in with Mrs Dondero. When Beatrice tells Eddie Catherine's getting pillows his initial reaction is he thinks she moving in with the two brothers but, Beatrice gets angry and says, ""¦ I'm sick and tired of it". She's upset that Eddie cares more about Catherine than his own wife, she even says that she wished she could have dropped dead. Eddie tries to make it out like Beatrice is blowing everything out of proportion, when he knows it his fault. On page 55 the immigration officers come to get the brothers, Eddie points them into the right direction and at this point Beatrice has a look of terror on her face towards Eddie. The officers take Marco away. Marco shouts out to Eddie, "that one! He killed my children! That one stole the food from my children!". Eddie just says he is crazy. Eddie does this for his own benefit he does it so that maybe if they are gone Catherine will be interested in him. But Catherine is in shock and is disgusted with Eddie for doing such a thing. Alfieri goes to Marco and tell him he can be released but he should not do anything to Eddie. Marco in rage of anger says "I'm gonna kill him". Marco gets released and goes to find Eddie. At this point people can hear shouting on the street so the come to see what the commotion is all about. Eddie is speaking and makes Marco even more angrier then before. Eddie pulls out a knife, Louis tries to stop him but the moves back. Marco shouts " Anima-a-a-l!", Eddie lunges with the knife but Marco turns it around and stabs Eddie. He fall to the floor before Marco, his final words are "my B", he dies in her arms. Alfieri ends the story saying he that he will love Eddie and respect him anymore than any of his other clients because he tried so hard to get something he knew he couldn't have. Relationship between Eddie and Catherine change dramatically during the play. Eddies jealousy took over his whole life for someone who's relationship was no more than platonic toward him.   

In this essay I will be discussing the relationship between Catherine and Eddie and how it changes during the play "A View From The Bridge ". Poverty in Italy was a big issue in the late 1940's. even though there was nice beautiful scenery, getting work there was...
