Assignment 6 Compare/ Contrast Driving during the Winter and Summer Without a doubt winter and summer are two different seasons and living in the south we have our fair share of extreme weather. Both seasons require a certain type of driving and to do that without problems you need to keep your car in working order. Without a doubt getting from point A to point B can be an issue if you do not understand how to manage your vehicle. During the winter and summer, you should always be careful to keep your tires road ready, your engine and fluids, battery and belts in check and always follow the rules of the road. Because winter and summer road conditions are vastly different there are a few things you need to know. First, during winter there may
A normal day can turn into a day filled with icy cold snow and warm hot chocolate just by one call. One call that gives everyone around the school district a sigh of relief that they can curl up back in their comfy beds and sleep for an extra
Driving schools are becoming more popular by the day. Everybody wants to know more and more about them. This includes young people who can't wait for the opportunity to take the wheel in their hands, and also the concerned parents looking for a good school to send their kids. Gone are the days when fathers used to take their kids out of the city to teach them how to drive. Blame it on the constraint of time and their working hours which do not permit them to do it. Now though, thanks to the number of driving schools around, their worries can be put to rest. Driving schools can help young drivers become more aware of proper driving techniques and etiquette.
There is a great difference between driving in the winter as opposed to driving in the summer. Although the two driving conditions have their own advantages and disadvantages, I would argue that driving in the summer time is better.
In And After The War Young men who are sent to a war learn the reality in a very harsh and brutal way. Both the stories, ‘The Red Convertible’ and ‘The Things They Carried’ portray the life of a young soldier and how he psychologically gets affected from all the things he had seen in the war. Tim O’Brien’s ‘The Things They Carried,’ is more specific on the experiences of a soldier during a war where as Karen Louise Erdrich focuses more on describing the post war traumatic stress in her short story ‘The Red Convertible’. One thing similar in both the narrations is the Vietnam War and its consequences on the soldiers. From the background of both the authors it’s easy to conclude that Tim O’Brien being a war veteran emphasizes more on the
For many, life out on the road is a way for individuals to experience freedom away from society. When experiencing freedom, it brings happiness to some and creates a fascinating appeal towards what life can potentially be on the road. This idealistic venture is seen in Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, narrating the journey of a privileged young adult named Chris McCandless. Krakauer guides the reader through the journey of McCandless of why and how left his old, but very comfortable life for an unpredictable one, by traveling to Alaska and living off its land. While many believe life on the road is a source of finding happiness, it is not an effective way to solve one’s problem; therefore, one should not live life on the road.
The two short stories that we read in this unit, “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury ,and “Examination Day” by Henry Slesar, both have meanings of their societies. In “All Summer In A Day” the main character, Margot lives on Venus and gets bullied by the other kids on Venus because she has seen the sun back on Earth while they only saw it when they were babies. On the only day where the sun goes out Margot gets shoved into a closet while the kids that bullied her get to go enjoy the sun for the first time in 7 years. In “Examination Day” the main character, Dickie, gets killed because his intelligence quotient is above the amount the Government wants it to be. Both of their societies are highly sophisticated but, they are very different
Five Winter Driving Tips According to the Farmers’ Almanac, “winter is back.” This upcoming holiday season will not only be numbingly cold in the Great Lakes, Northeast and Midwest, it is going to be downright frigid. Jack Frost may have been on vacation last year but this year’s predictions says otherwise. So, be prepared for the weather ahead of you by ensuring you and your vehicle are up to the many challenges the snowy, inclement weather throws at you.
Driving in the winter is one of the most common ways people get into accidents. When you drive in the winter, you need to be more cautious because of the slippery and icy roads. When there is a winter storm, you should always drive a little slower than the speed limit; just to be safe. Always wear your seat belt, because sometimes it’s not you that makes the mistakes, it can be other motorist. Some people say that if you have snow tires you are safe. That’s not always true. The weather can be unpredictable.

Technology has brought many luxuries to people. The invention of the automobile has brought convenience to everyday living. People use their vehicles to commute to work, school, home, and other events. Some people cannot even imagine living life without the use of an automobile. People have different tastes in the type of automobile that they drive; the automotive industry has made several different ways to commute. The car and the sports utility vehicle seem to be the most common types. The sports utility vehicle is inferior to the car.
In life, people seem to judge each other based on not only their looks but what they have. Specifically, when people have things we don’t. Ray Bradbury shows this theme in his short story “All Summer in a Day.” Additionally, the song “All Bad” by Justin Bieber comprises a similar
