    Marge Simpson
    {http://animated-views.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/simpsonsmoviehomermarge.jpg}
    My character is named Marjorie “Marge” Simpson. She is 34 years old, and one of the series’ main characters. The inspiration for her name comes from creator Matt Groening’s mother, Margaret Groening. Her voice is brought to life by actress Julie Kavner, who also does the voices for the rest of the Bouvier-family.

    Children are stealing food and clothes to survive. The crime rate is now higher than ever, and the prisons are close to getting filled up. What is going on in this country? Something has to be done, before this gets totally out of control.
    {histpic_2.gif} Child labour- Poor children working
    by Veronika
    Poor children are forced to work from a very young age. Many earn a few pennies by becoming chimney- sweeps or work on the streets running errands, call cabs, sweep roads, sell toys or flowers and help the market porters. Other children work alongside their parents at home or in small, dark and dirty workshops sew clothes, sacks or shoes.

    Seymore Skinner
    Seymore Skinner:
    Seymore Skinner is not one of the most important charcters in The Simpsons.Skinner is just playing in eight episodes of The Simpsons. He is principal at Springfield Elementary School. Bart is going at the Springfield elementary School and that means that Skiner have to give him detention for his make of fuss, one example: "That young man just became the boy of 1000 days detention." He is always using ironi, if only his mind, one example: "...there's not much meat in these gym mats..." When he is talking to the teachers he is always joking. He is trying to make order at this school, one example of this is: "make sure you return those chairs to the cafeteria Kim, I'm not kiddin' ", . He is often having flashbacks for the time he went to the Vietnam war, here is one example: "They told me I'd get a big parade when I came back from Nam, but instead they spat on me.".
    Flat and round character:
    Seymore skinner is not a flat or a round character. I think he is somewhere in the middle. Trough the episodes and the film you notive him, but you dony see him as often as many others characters.
    Satic or dymamic: I thinkt that Seymore Skinner is a stitic character besauce he is not changing in personality, but I can’t say this fore shore besuce I have seen maby two episodes of The Simpsons. It is not easy to judge when I don’t know The Simpsons.
    Stereotypical :I don’t think Seymore Skinner is stereotypical in some way, besauce I think he is a nice person. I think they are making big deal of his role as a principal in the serial. They are focusing on. When Seymore Skinner is home he is taking care of his mother. And I do think that they are making big deal of that to, one example of when he is taking care og his mother: "I owe everything I have to my mother's watchful eye. Oh there's mother now, watching me. What's that, I have a right to be here, its school business. That sailor suit doesn't fit anymore."
    Characterization Seymore skinner speakes very direct. He are always beginning to hiccough when he get nervous, spessially when his boss are coming. He is vey honest. I also think that he means that he say, but sometimes he say the wrong things in the wrong time. I think that Seymore Skinner does not show himself thougt the bodylanguage. He looks like a very “stiff” person. The other person in the story likes Seymore Skinner besauce he is a calm person, and he has neven been mean to somebody.
    Seymore Skinner’s emotional traits: He gets hic-up’s when he’s upset.
    He is disturbed by his Vietnam experience.
    He is disturbed by his mother.

    Child labour- Poor children working
    By Veronika
    Poor children are forced to work from a very young age. Many earn a few pennies by becoming chimney- sweeps or work on the streets running errands, call cabs, sweep roads, sell toys or flowers and help the market porters. Other children work alongside their parents at home or in small, dark and dirty workshops sew clothes, sacks or shoes.
    Many children are employed in large factories forced to work. The children are often responsible for operating dangerous machineries. Children who work in the factories are suffering a hard life. The young girls who is working in the mach factories running by Bryant and May enduring long hours and poor pay. They are working with dangerous materials such as phosphorus that could case a disease known ‘phossy jaw’ that rotten their lower jaw.
    Children start to work in factories on the average between the ages of nine and twelve. In many instances fathers employee their own children, who would work along side their children in the factories. There are children working in mills up to twelve hours a day. This use of child labour is influenced by the technology of the time. The first cotton spinning machines is so small that the persons have to capable of operating and fixing them is children. Also cotton spinning is easier for the kids to learn. Today children are working as piecers, joining together pieces of broken tread on spinning machines. These kids earn about 2 to 3 shillings per week. The fact that mills are small kept the owners look for workers who were between six and twelve years old.
    Many children are working as servants in the homes of richer families. Today is one in nine female children over the age of ten years working in domestic service.
    Through the firs half of the 19th century, English home owners clean their chimneys by hire chimney sweep to bring small children to go up the chimneys to clean out the soot. Orphaned children as young as four is sold by orphanages to master chimney sweeps to clean the chimneys. It is legal to capture vagrant, homeless children and force them into slavery. The children are sent up to the chimney to clean the soot from the chimney walls with their hands or with scrapers.
    The children are forced to work. Children who are working are unhappy. Their childhood gets damaged because they don’t live a happy childhood. Child labour shall have bin illegal. Stop the child labour now!.
