She had been married before at age 18 when, she was young and immature and now she was 32 years with a daughter aged 12 years.

Throughout Jeffs time at this so called “prison,” he is constantly being stripped of all of his freedom, as well as his feelings. Although he is a convict, many of the experiments taking place on him are inhumane; it becomes increasingly clear in the dialog between Jeff, and the head scientist at this prison, Abnesti. Towards the end of the story, when Jeff is reluctant to give Heather the “Darkenfloxxed,” Abnesti is quoted saying, “Do I remember birthdays around here? When a certain individual got athlete’s foot on his groin on a Sunday, did a certain other individual drive over to Rexall and pick up a prescription, paying for it with his own personal money?” Abnesti is using his minuscule good deeds in the past to prove that he is still on Jeff's side; indicating that Abnesti is an unstable human being, who does not feel how wildly this experiment has gotten out of hand. Also, he is
Mary begins the story as a doting housewife going through her daily routine with her husband. She is content to sit in his company silently until he begins a conversation. Everything is going as usual until he goes “ slowly to get himself another drink” while telling Mary to “sit down” (Dahl 1). This shocks Mary as she is used to getting things for him. After downing his second drink, her husband coldly informs her that he is leaving her and the child. This brutal news prompts the first change in Mary, from loving wife to emotionless and detached from everything.
Not only does Mary cause both verbal and physical abuse to her daughter, but she also causes harm to Precious’ new born, specifically when she throws Abdul to the ground. Much of Mary’s discontent towards her daughter stems from Mary’s husband (who is also Precious’ father), Carl, the father of Precious’ two children. Carl sexually abused Precious and Mary is resentful towards her, once saying, “Uppity now cause he give her more childrens than he did me” (Fletcher, 2008). Precious does a good job of concealing her emotions from the abuse in front of her mother and others, often envisioning a happy place where she has a boyfriend and life is seemingly well. Precious does, however, slip when talking to a social worker, Ms. Weiss, and reveals to her being sexually abused.

When Jeffrey passed away he was in the custody of his grandparents Elva Bottineau and Norman Kidman. Although Norman was not biologically related to Jeffrey he was still considered one of the primary caregivers along with Elva (Estate, 2006). A little bit of background history about Elva and Norman. In 1970, Elva was “sentenced to one year of probation for assaulting her five-month-old daughter Eva, who had died of pneumonia” (The Canadian Press, 2014). Elva then had two more children and got together with Norman Kidman. In 1978, Norman was “convicted of assaulting two of Bottineau's children from a previous relationship” (The Canadian Press, 2014). To put things into retrospect the Catholic Children’s Aid Society removed Jeffrey and his sister from his parents to escape their abuse, only to be put with people who are much worse. At the time that the CCAS was moving Jeffrey, there was no policy that required a Child Protection Worker (CPW) to complete a criminal background check on family (Estate, 2006). Essentially, due to one piece of paper not being completed, Jeffrey fell into the hands of the devil. Interesting enough, the two children from Elva’s earlier relationship were also removed due to abuse from Norman which led to his assault charges in 1978. Fred Kraut was the first son of Elva and he stated that he too was abused, along with his sister (Estate, 2006). Fred was shoved into a dog cage for hours on end

In the case of the TSA; Transportation Safety Administration, the problem is that screeners are facing declining morale with a high turnover rate. This means that low morale and high turnover become prevalent through the screeners who work at TSA. According to a recent government’s report, low morale issues can make negative impacts on the employees in organizations.

In fact, due to low morale, low payment, discrimination to minorities, and fear of retaliation by complaining, about one in five of the nation’s 45,000
