Gun control has always been something extremely controversial in society. But when events occur such as the shootings at columbine high school and sandy hook elementary, gun control becomes even more of an issue not just in government but in the eyes of citizens. April 20th 1999, for most people in Colorado I’m sure it started off as a normal day. By the end of the afternoon it stood out as one of the most tragic days in recent history. About twenty five people lost their lives during the shooting that day, not including the shooters who committed suicide. On December 14th 2012, an event occurred that left the whole country struck by sadness and tragedy. A mass murder occurred in sandy hook elementary school in newton Connecticut. A man named Adam Lanza killed twenty children and six staff members in the elementary school. After events like these, gun control laws become much more controversial and emotionally driven because people are still in devastation. Many parents and other family members of these events become so involved in gun control laws because of how emotional and close to home gun control becomes, after your own family is impacted. After the event at sandy hook, president Barrack Obama delivered one of the most touching and memorable speeches of his presidency. In honor of the deaths he expressed enormous sympathy for the families of the victims; he ordered flags to be flown half-staff in honor of the victims. Also Obama honored the six adults with the 2012 Presidential Citizens Medal on February 15, 2013. Obama had also said something along the lines that government would be working to prevent any tragedies similar to this. In a speech later that December president Obama said he would make gun control a central issue at the start of his second term. Another person fighting for more gun control laws is congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who…...

Study of Spoken Language Jk Rowling

...similarities and differences of two different interviews that JK Rowling is in. One of them is JK Rowling being interviewed by an American woman about her childhood, the other is being interviewed on Blue Peter by the presenters and children. In the childhood interview JK Rowling is wearing very dark clothing, her make-up is quite dark as it doesn’t brighten her face up and her hair is looking very dull. She looks rather tired and fed up in this interview. I don’t think JK Rowling feels comfortable in this interview as it makes her reflect on her childhood and this would be very uncomfortable for someone who’s been bullied and someone who hasn’t had an overly happy childhood. She’s not sat up straight and she is looking down for most of the interview and only makes eye contact when she wants to make a point. For example, the interviewer is questioning about her childhood and says “and how cruel the other kids can be.” JK Rowling looks up immediately when she says “They can be vicious...” she makes eye contact when she says this with her eyes wide open and she also puts emphasis on the word vicious. Another time she makes eye contact when she wants to prove a point is when the interviewer assumes that from what JK’s been saying that she was an unhappy child and says “You were an unhappy child.” JK replies very strongly and quiet snappy, with eye contact “Not re- no I don’t think I was an unhappy child...” I think JK was also lost for words there and was trying to think of......

Jk Rowlings Ugly Duckling

...through much evil in the human world in order to find happiness at Hogwarts school for wizards. Hogwarts is set in a parallel world, which is inhabited with strange creatures and offers many exciting adventures. In this world Harry leads the battle against the evil Lord Voldemort and his followers with Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly, which are the names of his best friends. Lord Voldemort, who wants to fight to get the power in the wizard world, exposes Harry to the most terrible dangers in all of the books. JK Rowling has planned out seven books about Harry, which are expected with great excitement every time a new book in the series releases. People are queuing outside bookshops to get the first copies when the release time is near. The story about the author of the books is an adventure, which is similar to the transformation Harry is exposed to in the switch from the Muggle worlds, the name for the boring human world and the wizard world. Joanne Kathleen Rowling had to go through a lot of wicked painful things before she became famous. She was born in 1965 as the daughter of a Scottish French mother and an English father. Reportedly, they met each other at Kings Cross Station, which is the departing station for the train, which sends wizard students from the Muggle world to Hogwarts. Joanne's childhood was safe and comfortable, but at the age of 15, her mother was diagnosed with sclerosis, which had an influence on her later. She had a lot of seizures caused by......

Jk Rowling Use of Language

...60 Minutes interview 'Childhood' J K Rowling J K Rowling interview In this interview with Rowling, he spoken language throughout is still quite stuttered while she is answering the questions and she takes a little while to think about what she is going to say as she answers, and she uses fillers while answering if she doesn’t know what she actually going to say as her response. For example she says “Erm” a lot as she thinks about what to say. Also she stutters a lot suggesting that she doesn’t actually know what she is about to say, or she is thinking of the best possible answer for the question. She even contradicts herself in an answer at one point, saying “So when you’re happy, boy are you happy? You’re not-” by saying “boy are you happy” talking about childhood but then she say “You’re not” saying this is contradicting her previous answer and suggesting that childhood isn’t a happy time and it’s not a good time in someone’s life. Also when she says “boy are you happy” she puts emphasis on the ‘boy’ there is even an element of sarcasm in her tone of voice, we know this because she then goes on to contradict herself, like she wasn’t being serious about her answer. After contradicting her answer she then goes off the point a little bit by saying “You didn’t pay the gas bill” comparing childhood to adulthood; she is kind of saying that as a child you have no worries and don’t need to be responsible, but as an adult there are slot more responsibilities and have to......

Harry Potter Prequel by Jk Rowling

...The speeding motorcycle took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted ‘whoa!’ Sergeant Fisher slammed his large foot on the brake, thinking that the boy who was riding pillion was sure to be flung under his wheels; however, the motorbike made the turn without unseating either of its riders, and with a wink of its red tail light, vanished up the narrow side street. ‘We’ve got ‘em now!” cried PC Anderson excitedly. ‘That’s a dead end!” Leaning hard on the steering wheel and crashing his gears, Fisher scraped half the paint off the flank of the car as he forced it up the alleyway in pursuit. There in the headlights sat their quarry, stationary at last after a quarter of an hour’s chase. The two riders were trapped between a towering brick wall and the police car, which was now crashing towards them like some growling, luminous-eyed predator. There was so little space between the car doors and the walls of the alley that Fisher and Anderson had difficulty extricating themselves from the vehicle. It injured their dignity to have to inch, crab-like, towards the miscreants. Fisher dragged his generous belly along the wall, tearing buttons off his shirt as he went, and finally snapping off the wing mirror with his backside.[tagbox tag="Harry Potter"] ‘Get off the bike!’ he bellowed at the smirking youths, who sat basking in the flashing blue light as though enjoying it. They did as they were told. Finally pulling free......

Jk Rowling Interview

...to analyse two very different interviews of J K Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter. Her language varies in each of her interviews; she adapts her speech for different audiences, such as children and adults. In her interview from, Blue Peter she is more animated and lively on the other hand in her interview from 60 Minutes she is very reminiscent and glum. In the 60 Minutes interview J K Rowling uses many fillers. Fillers occur particularly in the first section of the interview, as well as some false starts and stammers. “Erm so you have that but you â you forgot⦔. This suggests that she is reminiscing as she reflects on her youth. The hesitations and false starts also show that she is being slightly self-analytical and mulling over her past, “Not re- no I don’t think I was an unhappy child” JK is quite grim and frank with her language in the first section of 60 Minutes. Her face is dark and she doesn’t use much body language. She seems to communicate her thoughts across the interviewer mainly just verbally rather than para-linguistically. Instead she emphasises her points. For example, “I have no nostalgia whatever¦.” Here she uses “whatsoever” to highlight and back up her statement. Another example of this is when JK says “¦I wouldn’t go back if you paid me. Ever.” She uses “Ever” as just one sharp word separated from her statement to emphasise her point. In the second section of the “60 Minutes” interview, JK is more enthusiastic because she is being asked......

Rowling is known world-wide by her ever popular Harry Potter books. There is, however, more to Rowling than meets the eye. The struggles she faced and the end result of her fight for a better life has made for a wonder experience for me to research. Joanne Kathleen Rowling also known as J.K.

Jk Rowling

...Rowling was born in 1966 in Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire, England. Her father, Peter, was an aircraft factory manager, and her mother, Ann, a lab technician. Rowling grew up in Winterbourne, a hamlet close to the Welsh border, and lived four doors down from a family named the Potters, which is presumably where she drew inspiration for her main character's name. Her family moved again when she was nine, to Tutshill in the Forest of Dean. During her high school years, she was made head girl, despite the fact that she was generally a shy student. Rowling read often as a child, and began writing when she was six years old. According to interviews, she admired the works of writers such as E. Nesbit, Elizabeth Goudge, and Noel Streatfeild, among others. Although Rowling wanted to pursue a writing career, her parents convinced her to study French at Exeter University, with the hope that she would become a bilingual secretary. Rowling's rise to her position as an acclaimed author is virtually one of rags-to-riches. According to reviews, Rowling began writing the first Harry Potter book in 1990 after her revelation on the train. She was working full-time and in a long-term relationship. Shortly afterward however, her mother died, and Rowling lost her job with the Manchester Chamber of Commerce. At the age of 26, Rowling moved to Portugal to teach journalism, and there met Portuguese journalist Jorge Arantes. They married October 16, 1992. During their brief marriage, she gave......

J.K. Rowling vs. Suzanne Collins

...J.K. Rowling vs. Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins and The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling have vied for the attention of young readers, not for a long period of time, but have, in their time, blown other books right out of the water. They are some of the most popular books of the 21st Century. Many people favor one series over the other, however both books have made a huge impact in not only literature, but in popular cultural as well. These authors differ greatly in the tone and style of their books, however, they similarly surround much of their work around the subject of violence and war. Both Rowling and Collins are without a doubt amazing authors. Rowling has magnificent imagery and lengthy descriptions that creates a beautiful reality allowing children to get lost in their fantasies of a magical world full of wonder and possibilities. “Perched atop a high mountain on the other side [of a black lake], its windows sparkling in the starry sky, was a vast castle with many turrets and towers” (Rowling, 276). It provided young and old readers alike with a magical safe haven. Collins has a very different writing style, though quite contrasting to that of Rowling, she creates a masterpiece just as great. Her universe is so much more daunting, although lacking in magic, she creates a world with some parallels to our own, filled with corrupt political society and broken government. The science fiction trilogy takes place in a......
