The ideas expressed in the Treatises arose in the middle of England’s political drama involving Charles II. Locke hoped to provide a convincing critique of England’s current form of government and lay the groundwork for a better option. At the time, Locke’s good friend and ally Lord Ashley, the Earl of Shaftesbury, was working from within the aristocracy to overthrow Charles II. Shaftesbury and many others wanted to prevent him from allowing James II, his Catholic brother, to ascend to the throne. Locke worked on both treatises over several years, finally publishing them when William of Orange invaded and seized the throne in what was called the Glorious Revolution. Locke hoped that his new model of government would support William’s revolution as the necessary solution to a monarchy that had abused its privileges.
Having Adrian come out as some kind of loveseeking demon might seem very Stephen King at first, but he’s really more like the salt monster on Star Trek . It seems the orderly at the psych ward in the hospital was right about the kid. His mom ran out of excuses for her loving son and ran out into the fog to clear her head. She winds up getting her eyes pecked out by birds. At first it looks like Adrian is right about his father, who appears uncaring as he finishes dinner while his son loses his. The man is a monster with no heart and less soul. But here the writing team tries to come up with a new creature to add to the Stephen King-inspired rogue’s gallery.
Next up in sunscreen innovation is the broadening of their mission. Because even the highest SPF sunscreens don’t block 100 percent of UV rays, the addition of antioxidants can supply a second line of protection when the skin’s natural antioxidant defenses are overloaded. Some antioxidant ingredients my colleagues and I have worked with include tocopheral acetate (Vitamin E), sodium ascorbyl phosophate (Vitamin C), and DESM . And sunscreen researchers are beginning to investigate if the absorption of other colors of light , like infrared, by skin molecules has a role to play in photodamage.
