Bullet Points

Transcript: Rose of Sharon is Mrs. Joad's young daughter who is pregnant throughout their book and all the way to California. She is focused on caring for her baby and making sure it is happy. It is born dead, but it and the pregnancy symbolize several things in the course of the story. The turtle's struggle to cross the highway represent the Joad family's struggles to cross the U.S. to get to California. The road is an obstacle for the turtle much like it is for the Joads. The turtle's setbacks (Tom, getting hit) represents the Joads many obstacles that keep reappearing on their trip to California. When Tom lets it go after carrying it for miles, it turns around and heads right back on its path. This represents the Joad family's resilience and determination to survive and get to a better place. The Road The Turtle The Grapes of Wrath The road (Route 66) is the setting of the story. It is the basis of the Joads' journey and something that is always there. Without the road, they would not have hope for a prosperous future. Rose of Sharon & Pregnancy The story of the Joad family can be represented through the turtle, pregnancy, and the road. When the three are mashed together you end up with perseverance, determination, and a small sense of hope despite the continues knock downs they receive. They are constantly showing the qualities demonstrated by the three in their jorney to reach a better life in California. In the beginning of the story, a turtle is crossing the road when it is hit by a truck and is knocked off his path. However, it just gets up and continues to plod along. When Tom lets it go after carrying it for miles, it still is not discouraged; it keeps plodding along where it intended to go. By Ryan Quick, Sam Garrison and Gabe Bellavita The Story Rose of Sharon & Pregnancy The Turtle Rose of Sharon's pregnancy represents the hope that the Joad family holds throughout the story. They keep hoping they will find happiness and prosper in California, just as Rose of Sharon keeps hoping she will have a healthy baby. The baby being born dead represents the way that the Joads' hopes and dreams were crushed, one after another. The Joad's journey across the nation takes place on a Route 66 between Oklahoma and California. They pack everything they can onto a small truck and set out in hopes to find new life in California. The road drags on for hundreds of miles and is the only path for the Joads to take. The Road The Joad family travels across the U.S.A. with their good friend, Jim Casy After being driven out of Oklahoma by the bank, they set out on the long dusty road to California.

Bullet points

Transcript: Bullet p Simple lists The simple list format should be used to put lists of words/fragments of sentences into bullet points. When using this format, each point should start in lower case (unless a proper noun is being used) and the final point should end in a full stop. There are two options for introducing simple lists. Sentence/paragraph lists The sentence/paragraph list format should be used to put full sentences or paragraphs into bullet points. When full sentences are put into bullets, normal grammar rules for prose should be followed. In particular, and in contrast to simple lists, each sentence in the list should begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop. The introductory statement for a sentence/paragraph list should always be a grammatically complete sentence, ending in a colon. Option 2 If the introductory statement does not form a grammatically complete sentence, a colon should not be used. As part of its Red 100 Plan, Vodafone offers 100MB UK Internet 100 voice minutes unlimited texts ints As shown in the following examples, some operators impose more complicated or creative limitations: • T-Mobile UK restricts its unlimited texts so that users can only send messages to 200 different numbers per month. • In Spain, some of Telefonica's unlimited call packages only apply between 13:00 and 21:00. Option 1 If the introductory statement constitutes a grammatically complete sentence, a colon should be used. Instead, telcos should choose tools from the following options: • the open innovation toolkit • supply chain management • the open source community. This format should always be used after introductory phrases such as "as follows" and "the following."
