  • Prospero's Relationship With Caliban
    348 words
    Prospero generally greets Caliban and Ariel with the words 'slave' and 'servant'. Prospero calls Ariel the servant and rarely uses Ariel's name. Prospero also calls Ariel 'spirit'. It is quite apparent that Prospero feels that he owns Ariel, always calling Ariel 'My brave spirit' and 'Why that's my spirit' using 'my' in these sentences when he speaks to Ariel, showing possession. This is reflected in what Ariel calls Prospero - 'master'. Prospero is obviously fonder of Ariel than he is of Caliba...

After the Revolution the Americans took control of the canal and continued to build the canal to what it is tod...

Ever since it's beginning, some of the people who helped build the dam have had regrets for what has been done to the canyon. Lake Powell has spurred controversy since its be...

  • San Gabriel River And Its Drainage Problems
    444 words
    In 1938, the San Gabriel Mountains (Los Angeles, USA) experienced heavy amounts of rain. This then led to mass movement, such as mudslides, and flash flooding, which flushed through downtown LA, damaging buildings, homes and vehicles. After these events, a flood committee was formed, and networks of hard defences were set up along the long profile of the San Gabriel River. The aim: decrease the hydrograph, and reduce the risk of flooding. In the upper course of the San Gabriel River, the San Gab...

    floods Thousands of years ago before people built towns and planted crops, rivers cut deep canyons and molded the continents. Often these rivers overflowed their banks and flooded the surrounding areas, depositing mineral rich silt and soil in the surrounding plains and valleys.

The most important ones grew along the Indus River in Pakistan; the Nile in Egypt; the Yellow River in China; and the Tigris and Eup...

    McCullough presents a meticulously researched, detailed account of the Johnstown Flood of May 31 st 1889, which provides arguments for why the disaster was both "the work of man" and "a visitation of providence." However, it is apparent that McCullough believes that man was more responsible than nature / god for the extent of the catastrophe. In McCullough's opinion, the storm that caused the flood was no more than the inevitable stimulus of the disaster, whereas the deferred maintenance and poo...

    I'm always eight minutes late to work, not because I can't get it together on time but, simply because all my clocks are conveniently eight minutes slow. Most other people I know would just change their clocks or mentally add the eight minutes and arrive on time. (As I do for everything except work) Not me. It relates to my whole mind-set. If I change all my clocks forward those eight precious minutes, I just might find myself arriving on time every day and losing more than just eight simple min...
