Both Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee and “Colorado’s long history-and uncertain present- with the KKK and other hate groups” by Noelle Phillips show how a conflict of values make us stronger as people and as a nation. A conflict of values can make people stronger through bringing them together. When people’s beliefs are challenged, they unite against those who do not agree with them. They join with others who have the same ideals as them. This concept is shown in both readings. In Inherit the Wind, every citizen believes fully in the bible and does not accept the theory of evolution. Bert, a schoolteacher, is put on trial for teaching his students about Darwin’s theory of evolution. The trial causes a conflict of values in the citizens of the town. The conflict is the bible vs evolutionism. This conflict causes the citizens to come together against those who do not believe in the bible. The citizens had a prayer meeting in which Reverend Brown stated, “Do we call down hellfire on the man who has sinned against the word?” (Lee, Lawrence 66). The citizens responded with, “Yes!” (Lee, Lawrence 66). Because Bert went against their beliefs, the citizens were fine with cursing him. They did not think it was wrong because he questioned their faith. The conflict of values caused by the trial did not because the city to be broken apart, but instead brought them together against the person who challenged their beliefs.

The novel The Divine Wind (1998) by Garry Disher and the 2003 film, Japanese Story, directed by Sue Brooks both explore the theme of 'love' through the use of novel and film techniques. Through the studying of the context and textual form of both of these texts, a greater understanding of the important ideas is achieved. This includes exploring the context, the characters and the key theme of love.
In No Promises in the Wind many people brought gifts to Josh and Joey, when they were on their journey. Some were actual gifts while others were not. Some were gifts that weren’t physical, they were figurative. Throughout the entire book, Josh and Joey made many friends, and with those friends came many gifts.
The decade of the 1920’s was a busy grouping of ten years in America. The power of women’s desire to vote won them suffrage while uncertainty sprouted from government actions such as prohibition and especially the Scopes Trial of 1925. Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s play Inherit the Wind is a depiction of this unsettling event that took place in 1925. The four main characters of the play are Bertram Cates, Rachel Brown, Henry Drummond, and Matthew Harrison Brady. The friendships between these four main characters are used to show that friendship is a powerful bond, and how the bonds protected Bertram Cates from a larger punishment in court.
Written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, the play Inherit the Wind is a fictitious spin off of the historical Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, which hotly debated the concept of evolutionism vs. creationism and, in general, a person’s right to think. Overall this play shows the growth of many different types of characters. One of these characters would be Rachel Brown, the reverend's’ daughter, as well as Bert Cates love interest. She is torn between her love for Bert and her loyalty to her father, the Reverend Jeremiah Brown. At the beginning of the play she fears her father and follows only what he says. As the play progresses Rachel becomes more confidant and starts to think for herself. By the end of the play she has created her own identity and completely separates herself from her father.
Often times when reading, characters will seem as if they've been plucked straight from the real world and thrust into the plot of a story. Inherit the Wind by Robert Lee is a novel adaptation of a play that was originally written in 1955. Inherit the Wind focuses on the predominantly devout Christian town—Hillsboro. Bertram Cates, a school teacher labeled as an "evolutionist," is being prosecuted by a well-known and beloved politician—Matthew Harrison Brady. Consequently, a quick-witted and intelligent lawyer—Henry Drummond—comes to town to defend Cates and "the right to think." After reading Robert Lee's novel adaptation of Inherit the Wind, it was evident Rachel Brown and I possess some similar qualities and traits. For example, neither of us like to go against the popular belief, we try to be open-minded, and we are put under an abundance of pressure from our parents and society.
&#9;Brady and Drummond, two former partners, beginning their legal lives working together. Now each one strives to be superior, confident in their ways and beliefs, trying to out-do the other. Despite a common goal, the two gradually became very different people, as is evident in the play and movie,Inherit the Wind. Throughout the years, as each one fought cases, established a name for themselves, and gained popularity (or notoriety), they kept a careful watch on the other. Learning of the others triumphs, which pushed them to try even harder, become more set in their ways, believing that their heterogeneous beliefs were right, and that if they kept those beliefs the focus of their existence, they could eventually prove themselves
As probably the best courtroom dramas of the twentieth century, Inherit the Wind is based on the famous, Scopes Monkey Trial. The play was printed virtually thirty years afterward and takes original authority in varying the true-life elements of the court case. The central conflict of the play is based on the Scopes Monkey Trial itself. Several themes are presented throughout the play, for example when Brady argues for religious values while Drummond argues for natural values and freedom of thought. The definition of a theme is an implicit or recurrent idea. We also see a theme of man versus society, furthermore, Bertram Cates versus the small town of Hillsboro. A third theme is appearance
When a cold front hits a warm front only two things can happen, a thunderstorm or a rainbow. That is exactly what happened in Hillsboro, two very different but deeply rooted ideas began to poke at each other and stir up the townspeople of this narrow minded town. As a result they struck down and cause disorder within their community. Because the two ideas in this scenario are like oil and water, they cannot get along together. Inherit the Wind proves that two very different human roots are difficult to co-exist in the narrow minded town of Hillsboro because of how they deal with controversy in their lives.
Many people often do not attempt to understand the meaning of what a symbol represents. In the play Inherit The Wind, a symbol represents something more abstract or different than what the reader originally had thought. Many symbols were used throughout this play, like the monkey, which symbolizes evolution and the bizarreness and extravagance of the trial. Similarly, the golden dancer symbolizes that all that glitters is not gold and that looks can be deceiving. Furthermore, reverend Brown symbolizes the towns beliefs and is an example of someone who is overly overzealous. Evidently, Inherit The Wind, consists many symbols to convey the message across more prominently to the readers/watchers.
In order to demonstrate it, the battle of Brady and Drummond shows the opposite conception between them. When Drummond inquires Brady’s thought about the time in the first day of the Creation, Brady replies that “I do not think about things that… I do not think about!” (Lawrence 97). Brady chooses not to think to literally accept all the Bible words. It is the way he consolidates his belief but imprisons “his power of mind to reason” (Lawrence 93). Also, at his contemporary time, when Americans were daily fighting for the rights to be free agents and while the right to think was one of the most basic rights of human being, his statement seemed to recoil upon himself in that flowing current. On the other hand, Drummond declares the freedom of thinking in every conversation with others. When Cates is frustrated under the harshly public views and Rachel insists him to admit that he is wrong, Drummond supports Cates by letting Cates choose either quitting or not. He gives Cates the chance to make up his mind. In the trial, he questions Brady the origin of the events in the Bible hence he creates chances for Brady and everyone in the courtroom to think. He states, “I am trying to establish, Your Honor, that Howard or Colonel Brady- or Charles Darwin- or anyone in this courtroom- or you, sir- has the right to think” (Lawrence 71). With his statement, Drummond

“A wind turbine is a machine for converting the kinetic energy in wind into mechanical energy”. (1) The inventor of the first electric wind turbine was Clevelander Charles Brush, who ran his entire Euclid Avenue mansion off of one for 20 years, which later made the cover of Scientific American in 1888. (2) Although the use of alternate energy didn't rise a great deal afterward, this event did open the eyes for many environmentalists. Wind power is only one of our several “energy source[s] whose ‘fuel’ is free and will never be exhausted” (3) with the pros and cons not completely weighed out as to whether it will be truly beneficial or not. The two main issues regarding wind turbines are the environmental effects that they have and the
Wind Energy is a viable industry that has become a valuable energy source. The energy generated from wind is clean and efficient. The wind energy industry helps to ensure that electric demands are met, wildlife impact is minimal, the environment is not devastated, as well as creates new jobs during the construction of wind farms, daily operations, manufacturing components, and exporting components to foreign countries.
Founded in 1981, Wind Technologies (WT) has been a supplier of many different varieties of weather related radar and instrumentation. In 1986 the company focused its production on wind profiling radar systems that measure wind and atmospheric conditions. Management of Wind Technologies felt as though this consolidation would position the company as an industry leader in the future in a market that would have little competition. This consolidation was mainly due to being purchased by Vaitra, a high technology European firm. Vaitra made it possible for Wind Technologies to focus its operations mainly due to its large financial support. Since commercial sales were less than stellar since the buyout Vaitra’s financial support
