His clinical observations were now: Blood Pressure: 80/50mmHg MAP: 55mmHg Heart Rate: 130 beats per minute The patient was now diagnosed as being in septic shock. His skin was mottled with an increasing capillary refill time. Schmidt and Mandel (2008) suggest this is a sign of hypoperfusion as the skin is vasoconstricting due to the redirection of blood flow to the core organs.
They described the beast as having a long neck followed a large body (see photograph 2) and they watched it until it left the road and entered the water.

He was in bad shape. His voice seemed hollow and stuffed up, nasal-sounding, as if he had a bad cold. He held a flashlight in his hand, clicking it on and
The sea is an unknowable construct, utterly unpredictable and without pattern. The most significant and recurring descriptions of the sea relate to its ambiguity, the unrealness of its representation. The descriptions of the ocean as "indefinite as God" and the "howling infinite" are consistent with the the ocean's curiously wide-ranging characteristics. The ocean is also likened to "Hell's flames," another seemingly paradoxical analogy. As being ten thousand fathoms indicates, the ocean can be all these things; endless diversity is possible in "the vast swells of an omnipotent sea." The ocean is regarded for its resistance to human understanding. The given characteristics of the setting place a high value on mystery and a low value on the
“Is this—is this not enough?” he muttered, hands trembling. He clenched his outstretched hand around the severed lips, recalling the lurid scene from which they had come. The blood that likely still slunk from step to step ... the pearly white, up-rolled eyeballs....
Charles Baxter's short stories are well-known for the strong presents of ordinary people encountering extraordinary strangers who disturb their lives. “Gryphon” written by Charles Baxter is not an exception. The story is filled with characters that are awaken from their boring lives and transported into a world of possibilities. As a central idea of the story, Baxter's critics often mention “middle America's” conventions, and the effect it has on anyone who does not fit the mold. Within “Gryphon” the reader experiences a few days in the life of fourth grade class; specifically, a few days spent with a unique substitute teacher.

One of the contrasts in their culture is that they believe in everything should be the same, sameness(99). In my culture, we believe everyone should be unique, and have their own opinion. Another contrast is that they got rid of different weather, Climate Control, so that way sameness is all over(106). In my culture, there is no climate control, we have so many different types of weather conditions. Another difference between our cultures are that they don’t believe in different colors because of sameness(114). In my culture, there are all sorts of different colors because of the uniqueness. Another contrast is that they believe that not having a choice is safer than having a choice(124). The next contrast with difference in religion is that they believe that people aren’t allowed to own books because people would have different thoughts and opinions(128). In my culture books are allowed, and encouraged. The last contrast is that love isn’t allowed in The Giver’s community of sameness(157). In my culture love is allowed and most people fall in

He is in the presents of Ichabod; but notices and dark figure, identified as the headless horseman, decides to race the spirit. The chase begins and Ichabod notices another figure sitting on the horses saddle which is lead the be the lost head of the once Hessian soldier. The spirit goes in the opposite direction from Ichabod, and soon he finds himself on the bridge assuming he is out of harm’s way. He looks back from behind himself and sees the spirit approaching him in a flash of fire and brimstone (Nina p.60). The spirituality symbol is that fire and brimstone represents “hell”, a very dark and evil place. The next morning Ichabod and the Headless horseman were nowhere to be found, because the headless head that had been lost was found again. His is head symbolizes a guide, and without he would be lost
Bang. He yanked his head up holding He scratched under the bandages on his nose. It had been three hours, and everyone was still staring at his face. He couldn’t blame them; he did have a “nice” face. And it was the most interesting thing in the room during that time. Or, at least, it was until some administrator lady brought a new student to the class.

A small gold hoop pierces one earlobe. The rolled-up sleeves of his shirt reveal muscular forearms, and his hands are rough and faintly scarred, his fingers stubby and thick.He looks like someone who is used to working with those hands rather than sitting at a desk
When Mr Braithwaite first encounters his class they are an unruly group of people who never manage to keep a teacher for long. They were mostly unkempt and scruffy and weren't very well educated as Mr Braithwaite found out on his first day,
