The dripping droplets of sangria left scars of acne blood pockets on the vast hirsute landscape of his right hand’s skin. The fresh plasma fluid oozed out of his pores as if long, gnarly fingernails squeezed the layer of skin coating the yellow pulp from a new ripe pimple. His heart precipitously pumped into a state of distress as if he was a teenager, with a red-spotted face, being confronted by bullies. He was a hostage to the sharp, rounded metallic end pointed in the direction of his head. He stood at the edge of death’s abyss…
"The room goes suddenly white, as if struck by lightening. I stare down, amazed. He has torn off my arm at the shoulder! Blood pours down where the limb was." (p172)
In the end McCandless had given his life for the pursuit of truth that he so desperately sought after. If he was out there with better gear and had taken more help from others he would almost certainly have had an easier time surviving and maybe even survived it all. He should have handled the situation in a much more adult manor.
This piece is called, Mars Venus and Vulcan: The Forge of Vulcan, it is an oil canvas done by John Singleton Copley, done in 1754. The era that this piece most represents is the Eighteenth- and early nineteenth-centuries of art in Europe and North America. This is because of the brief use of nudity and the use of children that are shown as little angels. The artist also used a sense of time and motion. It is as if the figures in the piece are moving themselves. The use of 3-D and kinetics allows this sense of movement in this piece. Also the artist used repetition and rhythm. The viewer’s eye is constantly moving because of this sense of repetition and rhythm
He also uses figurative language to stress the amount of blood he lost on the battlefield. He personifies it; “and a leap of purple spurted from his thigh”, to focus the reader’s attention on that he was bleeding profusely. It was bleeding with so much speed and volume that it took on the appearance of a fountain.
Mark Watney in the book, The Martian by Andy Weir stayed on Mars for over a year and a half. Alone and hopeless, from the day he was stranded to the day he left, it was a never ending struggle to survive taking a deep toll on him mentally and physically. Mark Watney’s personality and attitude never changed, he took the worse of situations and lightened them up, while still understanding fully of the seriousness of them.

The following is a case study of a lesson by Mr. Villanueva reviewing lessons on the planet Mars for an upcoming test. Mr. Villanueva uses many different ways of incorporating both semantic memory and episodic memory as well as the demonstration of long-term memory in his lesson. During the lesson, the importance of attention in memory and recall is seen throughout. This paper describes and inspects the Mars in Review case and what theories were incorporated into this lesson. It critically examines each aspect of this lesson and the correlation between behaviorist theories of learning.
The astronaut faced many problems along his mission, he was left behind by his crewmates think that he was dead. Astronaut Watney could have died because he had not enough food.

It was just the regular night shift at a tiny convenience store at the end of the block. Certainly, an exceptionally ordinary in every way. Gas, sugary food, soft drinks, and to top it off, a cashier, just as any other convenience store in the country. But from time to time, things don’t progress as one might plan them to, or maybe they just end up at the wrong place at the wrong time. Owing to the fact that at this particular gas station, something unusual will happen, an unjustified tragedy. Mars Vesper happened to be one of two tremendously unlucky people on the night of October 31, 1984. Mars has made some questionable choices, along with the cashier that night, that turned in a full circle, causing both of the two quite some trouble if
I see myself in a painted portrait inside one of the windowless cells, Wild-eyed with blood gushing out of my mouth and my ears.
Base on what happened on the ship. They threw the dice for Roger Whetmore. In other words, the suspects made the decision for Roger Whetmore. Someone said they did make an agreement with everyone. I would say there was an agreement. This agreement was broken right
The first major problem we see Watney face is after he wakes up, after the rest of the crew left him on Mars, he is struggled with an injury in his abdomen. He was impaled with an antenna, yet by some luck this antenna sealed the breach in his suit. Apart from that, when he made it back to the habitat station he had to perform a self surgery or else he would not survive. He solves this problem by using his knowledge and pulls out the rod, fish out a broken piece of the rod inside him, and staples his wound shut. He cleans himself up and gets straight to planning how to survive.
