This is not the typical ghost story. This is a true story.
The first thing you notice about Gage is his evil eye, a pale blue eye. Whenever he stared at me with his devilish eye, my blood run cold. That vulture eye will never leave my head. Gage could hear many things in hell. Screaming and sorrowing every night non-stop, made people think he was crazy. Wrinkles covered his face. His skin was pale like a porcelain doll. Yellow decayed tooth were seen when he smiled menacingly. His back was humped because of carrying the weight of a great enigmatic secret…
Gage, mentally ill, had to undergo a brain surgery as soon as possible. His legs were shaking and so did his hand as he walked towards his visit to Doctor Demian. In the appointment …show more content…
‘This night of all nights, ’yelled Gage.
Gage and Demian approached the gargantuan stone castle, sat high on the mountain. Two men in arms protected the entrance. They tramped through the long, echoing passage and as they walked up the winding stairs the floor creaked. It was dark as ink. As Demian pushed the wooden door… The door hinges screeched and a huge colony of bats flew out from the door showing their incisors. The surgeon room was ready for the experiment. The only light source was the flames dancing and swirling. In the room there was an antique bed supported by thin rusted iron bars and an electric generator.
Gage laid down on the fluffy bed next to the bloodless corpse. A graveolent rot odor diffused in the air. The thin walls were covered with patterned broken to pieces wallpaper. It was a large room, were you could feel the dark force of something. Perhaps they are spirits. Pictures on walls stared at you menacingly. Demian tied his legs and hands. He got his razor-sharp instrument and barbarically cut through the scalp. Gage screamed louder than a freight train. A red crimson liquid splurted out like a bomb from the head.
Demian removed the viscous pink brain and fed the brain to his monstrous, abnormal creature. In one bite, the amorphous creature ate the brain. The brain removed from the dead corpse started to pump. In a glimpse of time, the cruel creature ate the brain. This bizarre individual grew bigger and bigger. The evil spirit

During World War II, the Americans fought a two-front war, with pressure from both Japan and Germany. The United States, aware that Germany was threatening to build an atomic weapon, created a secret project to develop the technology first. Under the codename, the Manhattan Project, leading scientists carried out top secret research on fission and the technology needed to create the first atomic bomb. The immediate impact of the Manhattan Project was the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan, ending the war in the Pacific. However, more important influences of this project can be seen following the detonation of the first bombs. The emergence of the United States as a world superpower following World War II, the tensions derived from the
Tobias Wolff’s short story, “That Room” is a very suspenseful story that has the reader on the edge of their seat while reading it. Suspense and excitement is created through the plot and theme of the story which are both developed through four main literary devices. In the story, the narrator is put into what is potentially a life or death situation and it is at this point that he becomes aware that one is never really in full control of his or her own life. Throughout this literary analysis I will discuss the plot and theme of the story in terms of how Wolff uses setting, tone, characterization, and symbolism to enhance both the theme and the plot.

What would be the three most important points to include in a public nutrition program? Provide current literature to support your answer and include two nutritional education community resources.
It sounds like using the stratified random sampling would be a good choice for using a particular group of people. In stratified random sampling the individuals conducting the research know some things about the community that is providing date such as age, gender, ethnicity, and medical diagnosis. This is also a good option when there is a time restraint to obtain the information that is being gathered. The survey would also have to be ensured it is written in a way that the average person can clearly understand the question to get a proper answer.
The stone hollow echoed with dozens of small breaths and the clunky shuffling of chairs and tables. The lighting pulsated, from glowing orbs, the color of mandarins, positioned near walls throughout the room. Every child in the room was quiet in fear of disobeying and in pure content that today was another school day. Eilig sat in the back left of the room, at an ancient wooden desk with years worth of scratches and pen marks. Everyone else’s desks were identical: a scribbled-out heart an inch away from the corner, a deep, inch long scratch on the side. The silence was contagious until a woman entered the room, with hare-like features she clutched a clipboard, needle-like claws holding the soft wood in place.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, written by Robert Louis Stevenson, is a story rife with the imagery of a troubled psyche. Admittedly taken largely from Stevenson’s dreams, it undoubtably sheds light on the author’s own hidden fears and desires. Written at the turn of the 19th Century, it also reflects the psychology of society in general at the same time when Sigmund Freud was setting about to do the same thing. While Freud is often criticized for his seemingly excessive emphasis on sexual suppression as the leading cause of psychological disturbances, the time period in which he lived was exceedingly strict on what constituted appropriate and inappropriate behavior.
A researcher, Stanley Milgram, wondered how far individuals would go in following commands. In 1974 he set up a series of experiments. Describe the research methods used, together with the findings.
Place 100 ml of distilled water in a 250-ml (or 400-ml) beaker. Add 1.26g of oxalic acid dihydrate (H2C2O4.2H2O) and 1 ml of concentrated ammonia. Stir the mixture until the solid has dissolved completely.
Throughout history there are many examples of humans conducting experiments on other humans. Over the years human experimentation has greatly advanced the knowledge of human physiology and psychology, leading to better treatments for ailments both physical and mental as well as a better overall understanding of the human constitution. Despite all of the good which human experimentation has done for the human race there have been times when experimenters have taken human experimentation past the bounds of morality. This unethical human experimentation is most often caused when the experimenters are, in some way, able to justify their experiments.
