Prometheus and Gaea?

Why did Ayn rand name her main characters “Prometheus” and “Gaea”? Look these books up in a book on mythology. Compare the myths about Prometheus and Gaea to these two characters.

Prometheus- a Titan, the forerunners of the Greek gods, who stole fire from Zeus (who was not a Titan) and gave the fire to mortals. Prometheus was horribly punished for this crime against Zeus and against order. He was also the god of forethought and the molder of humankind from clay. It was his desire to better the existence of humans that led to his conflicts with Zeus.

Gaea-  the mother of Earth, the begetter of the universe. Her anthropomorphic depiction shows her as being at one with and inseparable from the Earth

When Equality 7-2521 is working in an isolated area one day he meets Liberty 5-3000, having the mischance of falling in love her–falling in love is directly forbidden in their land.

(chapter 12)

Liberty 5-3000 has to keep birthing baby’s so she is kind of like Gaea.

Equality 7-2521 is like Prometheus because he is breaking the rules and doing what he believes in and what he wants to do.

Bud NOT Buddy

Bud Not Buddy is a story about a boy named Bud whose mom died when he was young so he was sent to a orphanage. One day Bud a and another younger boy got chosen to get sent to a foster home. Buds foster home experience with the Amos family didn’t go so well so he ran away. During that time he saw his friend Bugs and they headed to Chicago in search of Buds dad. They had to try to jump the train but Bud didn’t  make it so he just started walking to Chicago. A man saw Bud and drove him there because he knew where his “dad” was. But in the end he turned out to be his grandpa and not his dad.

Bugs: adventurous, un-fearing – I would say that Bugs is adventurous and un-fearing because he knows where all the little shantys are where he can stay and catch the train and when Bugs and he wanted to go to Chicago and when Bud and he tried to jump the train only Bugs made it.

Bud: street-smart,brave- I would say that Bud was street smart and brave because he is walking all by himself and staying alone and sleeping under trees and catching the morning and evening breakfast. Also he tried to walk to Chicago and got in a car with a stranger to get there.

Todd: bully,liar- I would say that Todd was a bully and a liar because when Bud got sent there Todd was beating him up and lied about it.

Chapter 1. Pg.12 -“We went out of the back kitchen door and down the steps into the dark. We walked around to the back of the shed and he put a key in a padlock. A chain rattled, the lock came off and the door creaked open.”

Mr.Todd put Bud in the little shed and Bud thought she saw a bat so he started swinging at it and it was actually a wasps nest. All of the wasps came out and stung him and he busted out the shed. He was on the lam.

I thought that this book was really good. I could compare it to a real story. It had a lot of action and drama and had me wanting to keep reading more. I would highly recommend this book to my brother, mom, dad, and ect. The movie is great for any age.

 

Dear Fraternity 2-5503 and Solidarity 9-6347

Dear Fraternity 2-5503,

Hey, i’m here in the uncharted forest and its way different from the city. First off in the uncharted forest I can be myself. I don’t have to be a street sweeper just because it was assigned to me. I learned a lot about myself. I am my own person not part of a group and I will not accept “we” anymore. Gaea and I found a house from the unmentionable times in the uncharted forest. We decided that we loved it and nobody knew about it and we liked that so Gaea and I called it ours. I think that you should come move into the house, i’m going to ask Solidarity too. I think that you cry without reason because the city. There isn’t good vibes there and they pretty much run your life and takes your in-dependency away. Write me back soon.

Sincerely, Prometheus

#BESTMOVIEEVERR!

Conceal don’t feel, don’t let them know… Having magical freezing powers are pretty cool. Having something that a normal person doesn’t have. You have to control it 24/7 and wear gloves and watch out what you do because someone might find out. This is about Being Gifted. Elsa is defiantly gifted. She could make it snow and make a ice rink inside her house within seconds but because one one accident when Anna was jumping from snow pile from snow pile too fast Elsa accidentally hit Anna with her ice powers in her head so their parents had to take Anna to the trolls to take all of the memory of Elsa’s powers out of her head so she is gifted but it is also a curse.

The big idea of Frozen is If you are the person with the gift you shouldn’t hold it back because when Elsa did that she set off an eternal winter. (Let it go, Let it go). If you aren’t the person gifted you shouldn’t judge them like that old man from Weasolton that tried to get his too goons to kill Elsa at her ice castle. When Anna stood in front of the knife when Elsa was about killed Anna turned into a ice block then melted because that was her act of love and then Elsa found out it was love that would get summer back. When Elsa knew the answer between controlling her powers her gift really shined through to Arendelle. Everybody looked at Elsa as a new fun person. She bought happiness to the town when everyone fully accepted her and she changed the climates and made ice skate days and they never closed the gates again.

Being gifted is really cool until people start judging. You have to accept yourself before others around you accept you. Like Elsa said (Let it go, Let it go cant hold it back anymore). If you have a special gift, let it show don’t hold it in or run away. People will eventually accept you for the way that you are.

Article Of The Week 3/20/14

My opinion on “Why is American internet so slow” is that it kinda shows that Americans depend on the internet more that people in other counntries because the other countries data loads way faster than ours. So I like how it says “The Obama administration is trying to undercut the whole mess by building new publicly-funded wireless networks to offer fast 4G internet across the U.S.” I liked it because i have problems with speed on my computer everytime I get on.

Ms.Kinnian shows Sympathy (Flowers for Algernon)

I feel so bad for Charlie. I have sympathy for him because I see how special he is and he gets picked on without even knowing. I know that he works so hard and people still make fun of him. Its not like he chose to be like this. A few days after the operation I could see that he was improving and that hes now getting that his “friends” that he thought he had were actually bullying him. On that day i actually cried for him. Hopefully the operation has the effects that its supposed to.

Sincerely,

Ms.Kinnian
