FutureStarrHow much is a ps5 worth
Ps5s are rare and highly sought after. In this world of Microsoft Surface Pro and iPhone Xs, we don’t know what will happen when the ps5 appears. It might be self aware or so small and light you can use it to work out. More unlikely, the cost might be so high that people stop using it. But whatever happens will be an upgrade from ps4. Just like a ps4.Bystander Syndrome: Everyone in Maycomb knows that Bob Ewell is a lout who refuses to work and only grudgingly provides the bare essentials for his children, but no one confronts him, not even when he poaches game off other people's property. By the time he's finally killed off, Tom Robinson is dead and Jem has suffered a permanent arm injury.
Around me, the cool kids wear Abercrombie & Fitch, and I do too, ever since I persuaded my parents to buy me some. (I cycle relentlessly through my three precious items; one is a dark olive-green “muscle T” whose purpose is entirely lost on my slight frame.) Our textbook cover bears the rippling glory of the stars and stripes. In it, we learn about the three branches of government and major Supreme Court cases. We read and discuss novels like Lord of the Flies and To Kill a Mockingbird. We watch movies. An adaptation of Mockingbird and High Noon, black-and-white movies about White (not Black) heroes. “When I read this book in high school, I was guided to think that Atticus is the savior,” noted another teacher the next day. Someone else offered that this was perhaps a result of “our misreading of the text itself, and our need to lionize” our heroes. “Our” in this case refers mainly to White readers, like me. And I completely understood where those teachers were coming from. When author Malcom Gladwell published a critique of Atticus’ limited liberalism in The New Yorker in 2009, I sent him a self-righteous rebuttal, 2,500 words long and with no fewer than 19 pieces of textual evidence. Gladwell, to his credit, did not respond. “You want to believe in the Gregory Peck version of him,” a facilitator explained at one point during our workshop, but as you’re reading you will realize “he’s a man of his time.” Specifically, a White man of his time and far from revolutionary. In Chapter 15 of Mockingbird, Atticus assures his son that the local Ku Klux Klan was “a political organization more than anything,” one that “couldn’t find anybody to scare” and would “never come back.” In Chapter 27, when asked whether he’s a radical, Atticus replies, “I’m about as radical as Cotton Tom Heflin.” I looked it up: Heflin was an Alabama politician and White supremacist. But “I don’t want to hate Atticus,” said yet another teacher. Someone suggested that Atticus can be both admirable in certain ways and reprehensible in others. “It makes people we admire more accessible when we recognize their humanity.”
Sorkin: What Ed is describing is a big deal. To have four weeks of rehearsal, essentially just do the play all over again with a new group of people, is something you don’t find a lot. What happened on my end was, Scott called and said, “We have a chance to get Ed Harris.” So I talked to Bart about it. It’s a whole new cast. With someone like Ed Harris, you can’t just have the stage manager show them their blocking. So we started from the beginning. The result is even more thrilling because the quality hasn’t diminished at all. In fact, both Bart and I make a strong argument that the play has gotten better as a result of rehearsing it again.Harris: I love the film. I think Peck’s portrayal in terms of that story and that script is just indelible. There are little things that happen on the stage even now, just a head move or something, that feels like Gregory Peck! But the inner life of this man I’m playing is so different [from Peck’s character]. He’s trying to hold on to a belief that’s being eroded slowly but surely. It’s really interesting to play. I’m not one of those people who finds a way to do it and is gonna do that same thing for six months. It’s always new. I try to stay open to allowing it to affect me every night.

Break the Haughty: Aunt Alexandra goes through a mild version of this. She's spent her entire life at Finch Landing believing that the Finch family were blue-bloods, and that she knows what is Best For The Family. When she moves to live with Atticus, she finds out that the Finches are not the gentry she thinks they are (and is eventually ordered to drop the subject by Atticus), that she doesn't know as much about raising a girl as she thinks she does, and has to serve the church women tea while they badmouth Atticus. And then blames herself over what happens to Jem and Scout because she ignored a bad feeling she got. Clear Their Name: The main plot and an iconic example in American literature. It's all the more tragic because Atticus proves Tom innocent so conclusively that pretty much EVERYONE knows the truth — but he's convicted, sentenced and ultimately killed while trying to escape just because he's black. The circumstances of his death are different in the movie: Tom doesn't even make it to the sentencing, dying after getting struck by what was supposed to be just a warning shot as he escaped the vehicle that was taking him back to the prison to await sentencing, since he didn't believe that the sheriff would be able to keep him safe.
Funetik Aksent: The book has some differences in pronunciation and word use to show not only characters' race and social class, but also the gap between children and adults — some speech patterns were okay for kids of Scout and Jem's background but would have to be dropped as they grew up — and what was appropriate in different situations. In one scene Scout and Jem go to Calpurnia's church with her and, on the way home, ask why she talked to the other black churchgoers in their own dialect when she "knows better." This is probably most young readers' first introduction to the concept of code switchingGentle Giant: Boo Radley. Throughout the majority of the novel, the kids have no idea what he looks like, and fear him greatly. The simple act of touching his house is a feat for them. But in the end, he's revealed to be a nice, timid, harmless man, as he saves them from Bob Ewell (albeit by killing him) and makes his appearance known. (Although, in the film version, he's really not so big. In real life, he was very tall.) (Source: tvtropes.org)
