While reading chapters 8-13, I made two predictions. Firstly, I predict that Tony will attempt to part company with his “rescuers”, Denver and Sean. The reason I believe this will happen is partly that Sean made it very clear that he does not enjoy Tony’s company. This might be because this camping adventure was supposed to be a simple and fun camping trip between Sean and his friend. In the chapter, Sean advertised that it would be so much more fun if it were just him and Denver and that he wished that Tony hadn't tagged along and that he was also slowing them down. All of these negative comments could lead Tony to leave and continue the hike on his own. Also, Tony had flashbacks about how he always depended on people to make decisions …show more content…
I related to this because the pranks in “The Trail” and the jokes that took place at my camp were quite similar - these events both happened at night and it was a simple joke that everybody laughed at. I know that when I realized that I finally pulled off a successful prank, I was ecstatic! I had a small feeling of pride, knowing that I pulled off a fun joke without getting caught! I am sure that when two boys raided Jake’s hut, they felt the same feeling of pride that I did when I accomplished a very fun but difficult stunt. Although, there was one difference: at my camp, we had to return the items that we “stole” from the boys, whilst in the book, the ones who successfully stole items got to proudly display the items that they robbed, in a glass case.
At the start of chapter 15, I thought of some questions. I wondered why Tony didn't go home as soon as he realized that he was feeling homesick. In the text, it said that he missed the smell of his grandma’s cooking and his playful puppy who was so loving. Maybe he didn't leave and go home because he thought that he might disappoint Lucas. Afterall, he had promised Lucas that he would complete the complex route on his own, even if Lucas was away at summer school. Also, he wrote a letter to his grandma after leaving home saying that he wanted to be alone for a little while and wanted to be able to take care of himself without anybody else worried about him for once. This could be

The final area of conversation was about Tony's personality and hobbies. Tony enjoys playing on the computer, watching youtube videos, and designing logos for friends. His best personality is that he is easygoing and easy to get along with. If Tony won one million dollars from playing the ,lottery he would put some in a savings account, buy a small home, and a car. He has two favorite movies they are The Spongebob Movie and Finding Nemo. He enjoys the story line in the movies. He grew up listening to Johnny Cash his favorite son is A Boy Named Sue. IF he could be anyone in the world he would be Bill Gates because of all the money he has.
This purposeful leave is a planned time of intentional and intensive growth for Tony with the purpose of, with the help of others, understanding and allowing God to make changes in Tony through the addressing of major character issues.
He does not know the danger that surrounds his situation, and has no clue what could happen when he tries to flee. The world beyond the prison camp is unsure for Tony; however he decides to cross the threshold anyways.
Well, you can’t really say that, because Tony was the one who left. Elizabeth had made him feel like a bad husband. In fact, he was a bad husband. Awful, really. His shit job as a line cook barely brought in enough to pay the electric and phone bills, and other than that, he basically ignored the twins, his wife, and even the dog. With the rare exception of that other month in November when he was shut away in the guest bedroom writing, he was at the Tiny Tap, drinking and playing pool until he shut the place down. That dirty hole in the wall was his true home at the time. He would stagger home to sleep, and had even stopped the drunken pawing at his wife in the wee hours for some affection. He just passed out cold until the buzzer roused him for his pathetic job at 9 am, when everyone else had already left the house. He was gone before he was
They believe all his actions are a result of his mental illness because they can not distances themselves from how they view him originally, and how he portrayed himself, as a mad man. Now, through the psychiatrist own reasoning, Tony is still seen as someone associated with his original character. Ultimately, Tony is still tied to the role he originally took and the psychiatrist cannot help but only see him that way a looks for justification in this by concluding all of Tony’s actions are behaviors of psychopaths, which is vaguely
At the time, he was only five but Tony reacted in a typical fashion. Basically, lecturing his young son to stop crying and “act like a man.” After their talk he thought to
She positions her body in casual way several feet in front of Tony and said, “Tony, you’re never going to leave this place. I’m not talking about Denmark, I’m talking about the mental world that you’re going to be in within the next five minutes unless I allow it. It will be your permanent reality. I’m about to take over your mind completely."
It had been a long and tiring night. Tony drank his consciousness away and refused to let Bucky near him. Some couple of hours had passed, he had eaten and napped several times, always making sure to stay clear of Bucky. He didn't want Bucky to see him at his worst, he didn't want to say something that he didn't mean, and he really just didn't want to be scolded which would've ended up with him saying something that he didn't mean anyways. So he thought it best to just stay as far away from him as possible.
He's been with him for, pretty much, his entire life. To Captain America, he'll always be his childhood friend back in Brooklyn who stood up and looked out for him, even when he was at his weakest. Well, now it's Steve's turn to do the same for him. There was no way that Captain America was gonna sit idly and watch his friend die. Just how Steve's view of government changed drastically, so did Tony's. In "Iron Man 2," Tony is fighting the government seeking control over the Iron Man suit. He even goes to Washington and appears at a court meeting, where various senators demand that Tony give the Iron Man technology to the government for military use. Tony responds, "I'm your nuclear deterrent. It's working. We're safe. America is secure. You want my property? You can't have it." Tony was against the government taking control of the suit he had been the sole controller of. This would all change after the tragic events in New York City, Washington, and Sokovia. Tony blames himself for a large part of the deaths that occurred in those events, specifically in Sokovia, where his failed experiment named Ultron wreaked havoc upon the world and nearly destroyed it. Many were killed, and Tony now considers himself and his technology a dangerous weapon that needs to be "put in
Iron man 3 isn't your typical action where the protagonist swoops in, saves the day, and gets the girl. It's actually an internal struggle for Tony Stark as he tries to regain his hold over himself. After the events that transpired in Avengers with aliens attempting to take over the planet and Tony almost dying he realized that he was not prepared for the dangerous threats of the universe. In the beginning half of the movie, Tony spends most of his time building suits and creating different devices in an attempt to prepare for the worst. He became so infatuated with defense that he began to neglect those close to him like Happy and Pepper.
The carefree lifestyle of Tony changes dramatically when his convoy is under attack after a test that monitors arms personally, and he finds himself the prisoner of a group of insurgents. Wounded by a piece of shrapnel, which is housed near his already weakened heart and endangers your life, Tony is forced to build a devastating weapon for Raza (Faran Tahir), the mysterious leader of the insurgents. Tony ignores the demands of their captors and uses his intellect and ingenuity to build a suit
The evening after the crystal ball you-tube episode, what Loki had originally planned as night of clubbing for him, Tony and Jareth turned into more of a group event. While Tony might wonder at Steve’s determination to accompany them, he was pretty sure Barton only went because Natasha was already out of pocket on some consult for Coulson.
Because threats to the human society were not always present, the Avenger members were usually jobless. However, Tony, who is too wealthy to care about working for money, often invited his superhero friends over to parties at Stark Industries. These invitations were always received with great joy, since the unemployed loved the company of each other and free food. After two years of elongated peace on Earth, all of the Avenger's defensive means were collecting dust, and the team members' physical conditions plummeted downward because of unrestrained intake of alcohol and junk food. Tony got bored and announced that he was getting married to Pepper.
Chapter 4 discusses the importance of differentiating between the language and the content of mathematics, science, and social studies in order for ELLs to gain both academic language proficiency and academic achievement. The author raises an awareness of some of the difficulties which are included in the process of developing academic language of these three content subjects. Gottlieb (2006) claims that “It is a myth that mathematics is a universal language”; he explains that mathematical symbols do not mean the same in every country, e.g. using coma to indicate the separation of whole numbers from their decimals parts (Poland is an example). Moreover, mathematics is performed differently around the world, as well as the language of mathematical
