Among America’s Great White Sharks, Susan Casey strives to portray the psychological trauma among other non-physical forms of beatings that both the scientists and the surfers face while in the wild expeditions as the discussion below portrays.
Casey obsession with the sharks begins spontaneously while watching a documentary she finds the animals intriguing and, therefore, decides to study them. The large animals are a natural wonder that promises an exhilarating experience. However, the expedition to interact with the animals is a traumatizing experience. The animals are large and not friendly, in fact, they pose danger to the humans who venture into the oceans. Most of Casey’s presentations in the book are, therefore, second and third-hand accounts, which she repackages systematically to capture the psychological features of the animals. In her bid to obtain the second and even third-hand accounts, she interacts with scientists among other people who spend most of their time studying the fish. Key among such as Laird Hamilton and Brett Lickle among other “shark guys” and sailors who venture into the wild oceanic waters.
Just as with any other ecological habitat, the oceans are often prone to numerous politics. Casey captures most of such politics as she studies the history of over-exploitation of seabirds, whales, and seals among other animals. In doing this, she portrays the human greed and human occupation of some of the ecologies previously occupied by such animals thereby resulting in conflicts with such animals. With such an artistic background, Casey begins analyzing the relationship between humans and sharks. She describes sharks as large hostile oceanic creatures. The animals are large and hostile. Additionally, they occupy some of the wildest parts of the oceans that are always inaccessible to most humans.

A man needs minimum of two gallons of water to survive here for a day. Luis Alberto Urrea tells a real story of 26 people who get lost in this track while attempting to cross over to the United States illegally in May 2001. Only twelve of them survived. The story is painful and raises issues of life in poverty and human rights.
Attrition is the wear to teeth caused due to interaction between the teeth itself. Excessive loads can cause micro fractures in the enamel region. This is termed as Abfraction. (Adrian Lussi, 2006) Erosion of teeth on the other hand is a result of its interaction with acidic foods which causes decay to the teeth surface in a variety of ways.
Police suspected the three teenagers merely on the basis of the items found from the three teenagers heavy metal T-shirts and Stephen King's Novel. On the second day of framing the charges the police have started the interrogation that too without any prior notice or warrant issues.
Cindy Anthony, her maternal grandmother, reported her missing through a 9-1-1 call, reporting that Caylee had been missing for a month since July 15 (Lundy et al, 2008). She also reported, during the same call, that her daughter’s car had a smell of decomposition.
This was after Casey finally admitted she had no idea where her daughter was, although, for the past one month she had been claiming Caylee was with her babysitter, Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez. This lie was later discovered since Caylee never had a babysitter by that name.
According to the research findings, it can, therefore, be said that White Teeth seeks to investigate the journeys and histories of the male characters to account for the problems men go through while acclimatizing to life in a country that has an influential and a memorable colonization historical period.
But the law-makers, administrators and the implementing authorities seems to blissfully unaware of the ground level realities, or they are ignoring it deliberately. The common man, the poor individual who is in search of greener pastures for the sake of bread and butter, is
Dr. Michael Welner analyses the case through psychiatric clues. Dr. Jan Garavaglia gives an account of why Casey was charged and why the death of Caylee Anthony was determined to be a homicide. Dr. Juliann Mitchell, PhD and Dr. Stephen Diamond, both forensic psychologists, give their analysis of the case and determining psychological factors.
Teeth erosion has become a persistent contemporary issue among many people, the aged and the young. Young people specifically have been adversely affected. Uncountable studies have been undertaken, relating food and drinks’ contents to the problem of dental erosion.
