Prometheus & Gaea

Prometheus 

Prometheus was the wisest Titan. His name means “forethought” and he was able to foretell the future. He was the son of Iapetus . When Zeus revolted against Cronus Prometheus deserted the other Titans and fought on Zeus side.

By some accounts he and his brother Epimetheus were delegated by Zeus to create man. In all accounts, Prometheus is known as the protector and benefactor of man. He gave mankind a number of gifts including fire. He also tricked Zeus into allowing man to keep the best part of the animals sacrificed to the gods and to give the gods the worst parts.

For this Zeus punished Prometheus by having him chained to a rock with an eagle tearing at his liver. He was to be left there for all eternity or until he agreed to disclose to Zeus which of Zeus children would try to replace him. He was eventually rescued by Heracles without giving in to Zeus.

 

Gaea

Gaea is the Earth goddess. She mated with her son Uranus to produce the remaining Titans. Gaea seems to have started as a neolithic earth-mother worshipped before the Indo-European invasion that eventually lead to the Hellenistic civilization.

Party Food List

This Is the List Of Food And why We Had It At The Party

Peach-It was a sweet drink but had a bright potential to be better like Clarisse

Fanta-Is was bright read like the fire in the beginning of the book

Cheetos – the taste hits you in the middle of chewing like the plot in Fahrenheit 451

Takis-They were like the fire in the end dark,black ,and brought a cold look but a large amount of difference when you tasted them, the sauce stays around for a while as you eat them like when a fire is over the smoke is still there.

————————————-

Dear Montag,

I want you to know if you ever read this, I am also in the book people, and that I admire your work. The other members have told me about your long journey of survival. Before the explosion, I went back to your old town to talk to your wife, Mildred. She told me how she felt like everything was coming to a end, she had been so lost for so long she couldn’t take it, she couldn’t process right from wrong anymore.  She said she had left her pills at home when she was trying to hurry up and leave the house before the firemen had gotten there. That’s why she called the call in, she said that multiple threats came in daily about if she didn’t call it in they would take her life and your own. She explained how she hide the letter’s from you while your were reading your books, getting the information you needed. She was paranoid because of that, she never told you why because she thought you couldn’t handle it. Beatty had a watch on you all for the longest , she said that he keep a good watch on all the firemen to make sure they never turned out like you. She didn’t finish what she was saying cause she just was stopping to get gas. She told me before the cab drove off she loved you, I never saw her again.

Well hopefully Ill see you soon, If your still alive maybe then I can tell you my story.

Sincerely,

Jay

Manipulation

Manipulation is used for many different ways in our everyday lives like when your in interrogation for a crime your manipulated into telling the truth or the cops soon find out your lying cause your story keeps changing. Girls and guys use manipulation to get each other to do certain things for them knowing they don’t want to do it. Their wants usually have to do with the female or male removing clothing or doing something in a sexual manner. This is how teens use manipulation, how do you?

In your everyday life, how is manipulation used to benefit you or make things worse?

Fahrenheit 451 Round 2 Discussion Topic(s)

I am currently reading a book referred as Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. For round 2 of our literature circles while reading the book, I had the responsibility of being the Discussion leader and the  Vocabulary Highlighter/Word Master. As part of my job,I found the following information compelling, “He says I’m am a regular onion!” (Bradbury 22).

This brought some discussion questions to mind:

  1. Will Montag acknowledge his fault in this as he goes from house to house burning books (history,life’s,new chapters of life)?
  2. Do you consider yourself a regular onion in this world or not?And why?
