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.

Macbeth is one of... Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies. It is a story telling the tragic story of Macbeth and how he was led to his death. He was full of bravery, courage, determination, and ambition, but his ambition was his downfall. He was told his fate and he had a promising future, but his ambition soon turned into greed. He tried to take matters into his own hands and that was wrong. Macbeth is a basically good man who is troubled by his conscience and at the same time is ambitious and murderous. He is led to evil initially by the witches" predictions and then by his wife"s wishes, which he loves. His obsession over the kingship shows a certain kind of selfishness. The play also contains a lot equivocations, which means Macbeth's character, can be misinterpreted in many ways. But I am sure of one thing Macbeth's characters changes a lot through the play due to his ambition and greed. When the play starts at the scene of the battle, you can tell Macbeth is very important and a trust worthy man. "What he hath lost, noble Macbeth hath won". He wins the battle and fights without help of the army. At this point I have considered Macbeth is very brave and honourable man. He is reputation in the play at this point is thought to be very noble and honest. He also handed a title for his gratitude by King Duncan. Which shows he is a highly respected soldier. The turning point in Macbeth's life and also in play is when he meets the witches for the first time. When his prophecies are told that is when the ambition takes over. Act one, scene Three First Witch: All hail Macbeth, hail to thee Thane of Glamis. Second Witch: All hail Macbeth, hail to thee Thane of Cawdor. Third Witch: All hail Macbeth, that shalt be King hereafter. This point in the play is defiantly at a great importance, because this is what led to so bad and wrong. But going back to the prophecies, they are enough to turn anyone's aspirations on. At this point I would say Macbeth is more confessed than being ambitious. I say this because, Macbeth knows that somebody is all ready the Thane of Cawdor and he knows somebody is already inline for kingship. But I do think he is curious and fascinated. Shakespeare is being very cleaver and devious by bringing the witches in, and setting a plot. I think the biggest change to Macbeth character came when he heard the news that he was now given the title. This brought great mischief in the play. "And for an earnest of a greater honour, He blade me, from him, call thee Thane of Cawdor"¦ When Macbeth heard this news he immediately was amazed and pleased. He started thinking about the prophecies and knew the first two came true. This put his mind in doubt, and also his ambitious side started to take over. At this point Macbeth moral side and honesty are still there; he has no thoughts of anything dreadful or bad. I think Macbeth is more excited then being scheme full. Macbeth has not changed an awful a lot, the only thing that has changed according to me is his state of mind. The most influence on Macbeth's character came from his wife. Macbeth's wife is very strong-minded and has no sympathy or humanity. I think she as big role to play in Macbeth's change in character and mind-set. When Macbeth declines killing Duncan because of his guilt and moral. Lady Macbeth questions his man hood and drains his fears away. Act two, scene two Lady Macbeth "Who dares receive it other, As we shall make grief's and clamour roar, Upon death"? My idea of this act is very strong, as I believe it to be the reason, why Macbeth turned so evil and dreadful. I think Lady Macbeth managed to turn Macbeth conscience against him. She denied him of fear and pushed him until he broke. As she as denied her self of kindness she is very persuasive in her role to lure him to evil. Macbeth character at this point is very distressed and bewildered, and as started to crack up. After he killed king Duncan, he shows his guilty conscience. ""¦will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? No"¦" I feel that Macbeth defiantly knows right from wrong. This quote is explaining that his deed is unforgivable, and not even repentance will bring him back to what he was before. Macbeth guilty conscience proves he was a good man, and is hunted by what he as done. He is troubled a lot by this guilty conscience thought the play. " Macbeth shall sleep no more." Macbeth is so haunted by his guilty conscience that he as murdered sleep. At point he is so troubled that he wishes he were dead instead of Duncan. Macbeth character has started to become so week and evil. He is so frightened of what he has done yet he stops at nothing to satisfy him self. When he realises that his kingship is not worth little because he will not have any children to carry on his generation. He realises that he is given a fruitless crown meaning nothing. He therefore decides to kill Banquo and his son Flance. Macbeth's character as started to turn into a monster and he no longer the charter we know. He as lost his honourable side and moral, he as become so evil that he stops at nothing. When Macbeth decides to kill Banquo and his son, Macbeth becomes devious. Knowing that he suffering the effects of killing king Duncan he still willing to kill again to fulfil his kingship role. He as murdered his own sleep and cannot hold his guilt but yet he still willing to kill more. When Macbeth sees Banquo's ghost, you see how troubled his mind has become, he now haunted by his own imagination. I think Macbeth as lost his way to good and now as become a tragic hero. He no longer posses his kind heated feelings, he as become evil like Ladymacbeth. I think the main reason Macbeth carry's on killing is because he believes that there is no way back. Its like his mind at times, as been taken over by the devil him self. Act Three, Scene Five "¦I am blood so stepp'd in so far, that should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o'er This quote sums it all up, Macbeth believes it easier to kill than to stop and repent. He so far in hell it is easier to go to hell than reach heaven. That is another a way of putting it. Macbeth evens admits that he has changed, but he thinks there is no way back. Macbeth character at this point as changed completely, he no longer the man we knew. He as become ruthless and cruel, he thinks he all-powerful. Macbeth I driven by other forces beyond his control, he become trapped. When Macbeth goes to see the witches again, they him told apparitions that change his character. These apparitions change his character for the worse. Macbeth is broken down man, and the apparitions told to him leads him to his own death. Act Four, Scene one First Apparition: Macbeth, Macbeth, Macbeth: Beware Macduff"¦ Second Apparition: Be bloody, bold, and resolute: Laugh to scorn The power of a man: for none of women born shall Macbeth. Third Apparition: Be lion- mettled, proud and take no care: Who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are: Great Birnam Wood, to high Dunsinane Hill shall come against him. These apparitions make Macbeth think he unstoppable and invisible. They make think he all-powerful and bold. Macbeth character as not changed the sense of good and evil at this point, but has made his attitude change towards being vulnerable. He now thinks he safe and untouchable. In conclusion, I think the major reason Macbeth turned ghastly was because witches plotted against him. Lady Macbeth was the main reason why Macbeth become so, unmoral and unsympathetic. She persuaded Macbeth to kill Duncan, and drained him of kindness. And Macbeth ambitious side took control and lead him to evil. When Macbeth realised that had done so wrong he decided carry on. He did this because he thought it was as terrible to stop than to carry on. Macbeth character had changed into someone completely different when he was told the apparitions. These apparitions lead him to his own death.

Charles Dickens aimed to convey messages...Charles Dickens aimed to convey messages about social problems in his writing and was a social reformer. Hard Times, first published in 1854, is a prime example of his ideas that with the introduction of industrialisation, humans qualities would be driven out and be reached with an utilitarian philosophy "“ where there was no place for fancy. Dickens criticises this. He believed that each human was different. He believed that people required a balance between fact and fancy to have a 'healthy' effect on society. Dickens uses contrasting pairs to show what he approves and disapproves of. One of the contrasting pairs used by Dickens to criticise utilitarianism is Cecilia Sissy Jupe and Bitzer. Their appearance is completely different. In the classroom, Sissy is described to be a "dark eyed and dark haired" girl when the sunlight hits her, but when the same ray of light hits Bitzer, he is "light hair and light eyed". It is as if the utilitarian approach to education has sucked Bitzer's life, making him seem unhealthy. They also contrast in their answers in the classroom. When asked to define a horse, Sissy is "thrown into the greatest alarm by this demand." It is obvious that she is not used to such as matter-of-fact way of education. However, when Bitzer is asked the same question, he says almost mechanically, "Quadruped. Graminivorous. Forty teeth, namely twenty-four grinden, four eye-teeth, and twelve incisive. Sheds coat in the spring; in marshy countries, sheds hoofs, too"¦" Dickens disapproves of the utilitarian education approach, as Bitzer seems to have no imagination, no life, and no childhood. He seems to a robot, just giving definitions when asked. Unlike Sissy, Bitzer only knows the 'utilitarian lifestyle', and therefore does not have a clue about the fanciful side of life. It would also have to be said that Sissy is having difficulty adjusting to the utilitarian lifestyle, as she answers questions from the heart. "'What is the first principle of this science'"¦ the answer, 'To do unto others as I would that they should do unto me.'" But I believe that if Bitzer was taken off to the circus, then he would also not be able to cope with the laughter, excitement and with the people at the circus. Dickens approves of Sissy's values, whereas he does not like the way Bitzer has been raised as a mini-adult in a "practical" way, taking away his human qualities and replacing them with mechanics. Another pair that Dickens uses to disapprove of the utilitarian life is through the acts and results of the parents, the "eminently practical" Mr. Thomas Gradgrind, and the circus clown Mr. Signor Jupe. Mt. Gradgrind believes that children, including his pupils and children, are "little vessels" ready to be filled with "imperial gallons of facts." On the other hand, according to Sissy, Mr. Jupe was a loving and understanding father that appreciated the importance of the fact and fancy balance. Mr. Gradgrind only wants his children to know about the factual side of life whereas Mr. Jupe wanted his daughter to have a balanced life. This is evident as Jupe put Sissy in a school. It seems as though Gradgrind does not care about his children's lives. For example, he marries off Louisa without consulting her feeling, because according to Gradgrind feelings are not "eminently practical." This is completely different to the fathering of Jupe. Jupe, ran away from her daughter for her benefit, as he did not want to live with a clown who could not producing laughter; a failure. The effects of fathering can be seen in the attitudes of their offspring. Tom Gradgrind, can wait to leave home in Book One, calling it a "Jaundice Jail" "“ unhealthy and diseased. Louisa does not care about her life anymore, and compares it to a fire. On the other hand, Sissy is caring and pleasant. Dickens is appalled at Coketown, and describes it in disgust. He condemns the architecture of the town. "It was a town of machinery and tall chimneys"¦ The jail might have been the infirmary, the infirmary might have been the jail, the town-hall might have been either, or both, or anything else, for anything that appeared to the contrary in the graces of their construction." The town is monotonous; featureless. It is "severally workful." Dickens also disapproves of the town river, saying that it "ran purple with ill-smelling dye." He is not only attacking that unnaturalness of the town, but saying it is not environmentally friendly. Coketown is described as a boring town, with roads that are all the same, the people all the same and the building made all of "red brick." On the other hand, Dickens describes the circus favourably. It is totally fanciful, and not one bit "eminently practical". It holds lots of different characters, all of which are friendly and emotional, including Mr. Sleary, who's philosophy is to "make the betht of uth: not the wurtht!" All the people in the circus use colloquial words, saying that Dickens is indicating that not all people need to proper and matter-of-fact. Dickens approves of the life of fancy more than the life of fact as he describes things such as the circus in a favourable light, unlike people such as Mr. Gradgrind, Bounderby and M'Choakumchild. Dickens tries to make the reader think that the best way of bringing up children is to give them a balance of fact and fancy in their life. This is being threatened because of the industrial revolution. His method of criticism is effective at times, such as when Sissy moves in with the Gradgrinds, she is lost of colour and seems unhealthy.
