    Introduction The diversity of arthropods extends beyond the location factor alone as multiple influences such as humidity levels, atmospheric content and other environmental conditions contribute to their widespread assortment. Gaps in diversity indices do not only occur amongst insect populations residing at regionally distinct locations as these influences are also reflected in arthropod communities over small distances. Climatic conditions often lead to insect migrations and extinctions which allows the level of diversity of insects in communities to reflect variations in climatic conditions in different regions (Reich et al. 2014). As results for several studies indicate, the diversity rates of arthropods face variations based on ecological…

    “Consider the Lobster” boils down to the treatment and sensitivity of lobsters. In August of 2004, a satirical and forthright account of the Maine Lobster Festival (MLF) was published in Gourmet Magazine. At first glance, it is a routine portrayal of the wonders of a popular festival. Upon closer inspection, however, it becomes evident that David Foster Wallace does not sing the festival’s praises or provide insider tips. In spite of his unconventional viewpoint, he does more than delve into the…

His essay is subversive by putting possible doubt in the readers mind and made them actually listen to other viewpoints. When I say “other viewpoints” I am speaking about the viewpoints of people who think it is…
