Consistency in the ay Bernice Bobs Her Hair: A Comparison of Joan Silver's Film and Fitzgerald's Original Short Story

Scott Fitzgerald's depiction of the Roaring Twenties has long been lauded as a richly detailed and highly picture of the spirit and the aesthetics of the time, with the frivolity, depravity, and humanity of the period practically leaping off of the pages he scribed. His short story "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" is no exception to this general assessment of his works, showing the attitudes, the superficiality, and the underlying emotional and social conflicts that bubble just beneath the surface of the young and moneyed in 1920s America. Joan Silver's 1976 film adaptation of the story, which remains highly faithful to Fitzgerald's text, manages to capture this spirit quite directly and completely, and from beginning to end creates both an homage to Fitzgerald and a real recognition of the characters and…… [Read More]

Girl Before a Mirror by Picasso

Words: 345 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 54628167

Beautiful Girl Combs Her Hair" by Li Ho and "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath discusses the theme of beauty uses the object mirror as a symbol to illustrate and effectively use the theme of beauty. In Li Ho's poem, he tells us of the extraordinary beauty of a woman whom me witnesses combing her hair using a 'jade comb,' and makes use of the object mirror as an accessory that the girl uses in her 'beauty ritual.' "Mirror," meanwhile, is a thought-provoking poem that tackles the issue of beauty and vanity as dictated by the society. Plath uses imagery and the object mirror to symbolize the important of beauty to an individual, and how the mirror 'mirrors' the desperation of an individual who aims to achieve beauty (in frustration and great desperation).

The similarity between the two poems is that both use imagery and the theme of beauty. Imagery was used…… [Read More]

Petrarch's Sonnet She Let Her

Words: 1050 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 7065508

A central element that is fostered throughout the poem is the sense of emotional intensity and passion which is suggested by images and metaphors of burning and fire. For example, who had the lure of love in my breast, what wonder if I suddenly caught fire?

The second stanza continues the theme of lost love. The woman is depicted in a golden light and idealized form, which is supported by the emotional intensity of the protagonists love for her. This stanza also follows the same pattern of increase and decrease in intensity and the shift between adoration and loss of love. This pattern continues throughout the stanzas and culminates in the final lines of the poem. It is as if the recollection and memory of the loved one intensifies the feeling of love and passion to mythical proportions.

Her way of moving was no mortal thing, but of angelic form:…… [Read More]

Owning a Beauty Salon Way

Words: 1450 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 12766370

The salon should fit in with surrounding services. For example, a small shopping strip or mall with several types of businesses, such as a restaurant, an insurance office, a real estate office, an accountant, a doctor, dentist, or optical store, and a tanning salon would make an ideal location for a beauty shop (Constant-content.com).

If you are going to own your own shop, you need a business plan. Your plan should include short-term and long-term business goals; a financial assessment of how much the start-up costs will be and whether a business loan will be necessary; a detailed list of necessary equipment (including how much the equipment will cost); a plan for partnerships (if you intend to rent out salon booths), and a marketing/advertising strategy. For example, you might put ads in local papers and on placemats at local restaurants with a coupon offering a special deal for the first…… [Read More]

An operational plan will be needed where you think out how the salon will be run and managed. What will the hours be? Who will work in the shop? Will there be music, coffee, magazines? Will you make appointments, and if so, how will you manage them? How much time will each customer get? Will your place be an inexpensive "in-and-out quick service" type place or will the pace be more elegant and relaxed? If you plan to rent out salon booths, you'll need to work out how the salon is to be organized and who will do what. Everyone should have a part in cleaning, keeping organized, giving exceptional customer service, etc.

If you rent booths, it will no longer just be you representing the business to the community. You will need everyone to contribute to your good image and you'll want to find ways to promote team work. All this requires communication. How the communication will take place should be part of the plan.

An example of an outstanding success is Edris Nicholls who opened a salon in New York City. She started out working in a chic salon on Madison Avenue where she specialized in great haircuts. Two years later she moved to another salon where she became an assistant to a well-known stylist with celebrity clients. In 2000 she decided to launch her own business in downtown Manhattan. Because she was black, she had to get a white friend to rent space for her. It cost her $250,000 to build her 3,000 square foot space into a full service hair salon. She financed it with a combination of savings, stock sales, a $40,000 business loan, and a home equity loan. She got an extra $100,000 from the building's landlord for changes to the building's infrastruture that he would have had to make anyway. He also gave her a year's free rent. She specialized in upscale services, $200 haircuts, for example. Now she has four stylists, two colorists, a makeup artist, a manicurist-pedicurist-waxer, four assistants-in-training, and

Why are fat-soluble drugs more suitable for this type of delivery than drugs that are soluble in water?

Fat-soluble drugs are more suitable for skin diffusion than soluble drugs because they tend to be hydrophobic compounds, which facilitates their diffusion across the lipid membrane of skin cells. Water-soluble drugs are often hydrophilic and thus cannot easily diffuse through a hydrophobic milieu like the plasma membrane.

5. Which cutaneous glands are associated with hair follicles and what is their function?

The sebaceous glands are associated with hair follicles and function to secrete sebum (oil-like composition) into the follicular canal. Sebum helps to waterproof hair and skin, and it also serves to prevent cracking due to dehydration.

6. In which layer(s) of the epidermis does cell division occur?

Cell division occurs primarily in the stratum basale.

Attitude Change and Persuasion

Words: 1095 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 43280548

Attitudes

Functional attitude theories hold the central notion that people have attitudes for different reasons. By understanding the different reasons that one has for an attitude and targeting these reasons can be the basis for being able to change an attitude. The basic attitude functions are:

The knowledge function of an attitude refers to the need for people to assign structure, meaning, or order to their surroundings. For instance, in studies of cognitive dissonance people need to assign order to a chaotic situation (incompatible behavior and attitude) and therefore bolster a particular attitude to do so. Advertisers have used this as strategic tactic for years when they target people who have chronic pain, depression, or some other particular condition that results in perceived disorder in their lives. Morals, ethics, and the need to find structure in ambiguous situations serve this function in much the same way. Such attitudes provide a…… [Read More]

DYNOMITE Haircuts Stage

This case study concerns the needs and objectives of a particular business known as Dynomite Haircuts. Dynomite Haircuts first opened in a college town where it was the only business of its kind in a 10-mile radius. This was ideal as it allowed the company to establish roots, gain a solid reputation and client base and begin to expand in a marked and concerted manner. Now there is a much higher level of competition which has developed over time in this area. In spite of this increased competition, the business is still performing well. However, it could be performing even better: it could still reach a higher level of competition and effectiveness necessary to bring in a higher level of revenue. The areas that need to be improved are: scheduling, supply ordering, inventory management, collecting customer information and marketing. Once these areas are improved, and these obstacles…… [Read More]

Ethics in Marketing

In order to realize themselves as socially responsible corporate entities, business organizations have to maintain a sound ethical track record in every aspect of their business (Arnold 2009). They have to formulate their business policies and strategies in such a fashion that no societal values are exploited and no human being is harmed in any way (Crane & Matten 2007). It is essential for organizations to keep themselves on the safest ethical path in their marketing, promotional, and general operational activities (Lamb, Hair, & McDaniel 2012). It cannot only save them from severe criticism by their stakeholders, but also contribute towards a sustainable future in their industry. especting the ethical values and social norms of a society helps an organization in standing on competitive grounds among its competitors and strengthening its public image (Abela & Murphy 2008).

Fairytale Long Ago and Far Away There

Words: 986 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Creative Writing Paper #: 75277701

FairyTale

Long ago and far away there lived a girl named Victoria. She and her poor parents lived in a cottage, in a beautiful valley. Close to them there was an enchanted forest. The girl would wake up early in the morning and go into the forest to fetch the wood for the fire. She would gather mushrooms and pick flowers and sing, both because she loved to sing but also because she was afraid of those woods. She had heard of the mean ogres who lived deep in the forest and she hoped she would never have to face them.

One day, her mother gave her a bag with some beautiful fabric she had woven from the finest wool thread she could find to bring to the king and queen who were living at the castle, on the other side of the forest. She knew she would have to…… [Read More]

The face of this second presence has been painted in a lighter nuance and his uncombed hair clearly suggests an inferior position on the social ladder. The boy's eyesight is somewhat directed towards the copy of the periodical in the woman's hand and his mouth is open, suggesting his amazement upon gazing at the newspaper.

Finally, the third presence in La evue Blanche is a large shadow, which has been interpreted for years as an angry, child, another woman or other features. The shadow is painted in the same color as the outfit of the woman and the urchin, blurring the contours even more. Against the faces of the two distinguishable characters and the light colored background, the single white presence in the painting is the copy of the periodical held in the woman's hand.

Michigan vs. Tyler, the Supreme Court decided that "fire fighters, and/or police and arson investigators, may seize arson evidence at a fire without warrant or consent, on the basis of exigent circumstances and/or plain view"

This may only occur during the extinguishing operations or immediately after, otherwise a warrant or the owner's consent is necessary. This came as a response to an accusation of "conspiracy to burn real property," where the prosecutors had collected and used evidence of numerous days after the firefighting operations. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the defendant, as evidence was collected without warrant in the subsequent days.

Words: 642 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 83995918

Art

The Portrait of Joseph Roulin by Vincent Van Gogh is Van Gogh's representation of his friend and idol, Joseph Roulin. The portrait is a drawing, rendered in brown ink and black chalk. While impressionistic, the portrait is also realistic- conveying an actual resemblance to a person. This portrait was significant because it was painted during Van Gogh's period in Arles, France. While productive in Arles, Van Gogh was also relatively isolated, and considered Roulin one of his dearest friends. This is interesting because Roulin is not depicted in a friendly manner, but appears severe and somewhat imposing. This may be because Van Gogh believed Roulin was an impressive and was man, as well as a dear friend. Therefore, his choice of medium may have been made in order to convey wisdom, rather than friendliness.

Narrator of Cathy Song's Poem

Words: 315 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 63510214

The last line of "The White Porch" indicates that the narrator deliberately and delightfully subverts tradition and norms by "smuggling" her lover into the bedroom under the cover of shadows.

Still, the narrator never notes discontent. She views her daily chores as "luxury," and "thoughtfully" shucks beans from their shells after her shower. Lingering on the white porch of the family home, the narrator is aware of being weighted down by family obligations but does not resent those traditions either. For example, she describes her hair as a "weight," but appreciates the hours of time she has before her lover steals in after dusk. The slow passage of time throughout the day parallels the pace of passionate sex and courtship too: in the second, most sensually-worded stanza the narrator describes "this slow arousal" with delightful imagery including an orange sponge cake rising in the oven, soon to be drenched in…… [Read More]

Dangerous Game

The basic story of "The Most Dangerous Game," both the short story and the 1932 film are about a big game hunter who finds himself at the mercy of an even more dedicated hunter than himself, the mad Cossack General Zaroff who chases and kills human beings for sport. In transferring the story from print to film, the screenwriters, producers, directors, and actors make certain changes to the story in order to heighten action or in some way appeal to their audience which the story in and of itself does not allow. Sometimes such changes improve the story, but in many cases, the changes damage the integrity and in this case the suspense of the story. In the film version of Zaroff, the choices of the filmmakers tend to create an intense, but far less frightening characterization of an obsessed hunter willing to destroy anything and anyone for…… [Read More]

One cannot build the right sort of house -- the houses are not really adequate, "Blinds, shutter, curtains, awnings, were all closed and drawn to keep out the star. Grant it but a chink or keyhole, and it shot in like a white-hot arrow." The stare here is the metonymic device -- we assume it is stranger, the outside vs. The inside, but for some reason, it is also the authority involved, and one that is able to ensure adequacy. In a similar vein, the "churches were freest from it," but they offer only an homage' to safety, and use their power to shut people out from the light that "made the eyes ache" and had been inhumanly oppressive. The prison, though, is "so repulsive a place that even the obtrusive star blinked at it and left it to such refuse of reflected light as could find." The stare is…… [Read More]

The Lord will lead one to safety always. One can simply believe in something higher to get the meaning of this; it doesn't have to be Jesus. Psalm 127, contrarily is confusing because it states that unless the Lord builds the house, it is built in vain. This seems to be more literal, but I do get the idea. Unless the people building the house are doing it with the love of the Lord in their hearts, or building it for him, then what is the point?

Didactic poetry can be quite comforting as seen in Psalm 23 or it can be much too literal and seen as both confusing and condescending. Psalm 127 isn't very instructive spiritually speaking, unlike Psalm 23.

However, that was not an option, and it points to the rigidity of the corporation and its rules.

A Harrah's spokesman for the "Personal Best" program noted, "Harrah's customers, people who are loyal to the Harrah's brand name, expect a certain quality of product, a certain quality hotel room, quality of food, and, yes, a certain quality in the appearance of the people who are serving them food and beverages'" (Chmela).

The Pornification of Women in Mainstream Western Media

Sexuality is a normal part of life for every male and female. egardless of where he or she lives, or even what age a person is, sex will be a need. It is a known biological fact. However, the Western media has been blamed to play a large role in exacerbating the need. Back in 1811, a novel published by Jane Austin known as Sense and Sensibility mentioned the word chaperon. It was stated that back then a young woman and young man were never left alone. Even if they were left alone, they were left in the presence of a chaperone. (Poisoned by Porn; It's" 2010, 14) why was this the case? The answer to that lies in that sex is a need for every man or woman born into this world. It was back…… [Read More]

Le Viol Rape by Surrealist Painter Rene

Words: 1035 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 55090750

Le Viol (rape) by surrealist painter Rene Magritte. The painting was done in 1934 and it was clearly meant to shock the viewer as it is a repulsive representation of a woman's face. However, instead of eyes she has breasts, instead of a mouth she has pubic hair that one assumes is covering a vagina, and instead of a nose Magritte has placed a human belly button in that spot.

There are many possible suggestions that an alert observer could present in terms of what the artist had in mind when he created this piece (it was first a drawing and later Magritte produced an oil on canvas painting from the drawing). One idea that has value is that Magritte was not-so-subtly protesting against rape. He presented a woman's face as her anatomy, as though perhaps it would be her destiny to have her breasts and her vagina be a…… [Read More]

There is the feeling that Rushdie is toying with the concept of freedom of speech in this story as well as destroying the concept of the East as mysterious. Rushdie uses English to tell his story, but he incorporates the Indian oral tradition without any kind of chronological structure to the story. He deconstruct the binary opposition of East and est. He himself is between the Orient and the Occident and he chooses to use both structures, combining Britain and India (Buran 10).

The factors of race and gender complicate the relations of class in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, ole Soyinka's "Telephone Conversation," and Jean Rhys "Let Them Call It Jazz" in various ways. In Heart of Darkness, the story is centered on the typical male experience, which tends to alienate the female reader from the very "mannish" story.

Do you disagree with any of Pope's opinions or pronouncements in the Heroic Couplets or "An Essay on Man"?

Pope is critical of individuals who "cry, if man's unhappy, God's unjust," suggesting that the unhappiest people are people who blame God, rather than themselves for all of their troubles, or who curse God because their lives are imperfect. The need to accept life's imperfections while still working to enact positive changes within the limitations of humanity is a positive message still relevant for people today.

Christy Turlington explains to Elle magazine... "Advertising is so manipulative," she says. "There's not one picture in magazines today that's not airbrushed."… "It's funny," Turlington continues. "hen women see pictures of models in fashion magazines and say, 'I can never look like that,' what they don't realize is that no one can look that good without the help of a computer." (Hilary 13)

That's right, the beautiful Turlington, a woman that can be said as fitting the standard ideal of American beauty, admits that it is unachievable even for her. hy? Because even she admits that she has been touched up. In a similar exercise, we can only imagine the remarkable steadfastness this act must have taken, but it shows that there is a realization that this American image is unattainable (Domar 23).

Fashion has been on people's minds since time immemorial. Whether man, woman, child or elderly, individuals have sought to express themselves through how they dressed, one more conservative, the other extravagant and glamorous. Nowadays, it's quite a technique to skillfully attempt to dress people when being dressed sometimes implies having no clothing whatsoever. This effect is accurately illustrated in Picture 1 in which a marrying couple seem to be wearing, what looks like a uniform for the man, and a dressing gown for the woman. While one does notice the boxer shorts on the man and the extension of a real dress on the woman, the effect is nevertheless substantial. Deeply rooted in ritualized tribalists cultures, body painting nowadays stands for various purposes: it has come to represent either a form of extravaganza, or means by which people choose…… [Read More]

Stolen Party

Dear Senora Ines,

It has been over a decade since we last spoke, and although I have grown from an impressionable child to a confident woman, I find myself thinking about you more often than I would like. Luciana and I drifted apart during high school, as children tend to do, and that has never bothered me a bit, but there is simply something about my last experience with you that has never left my mind in all these years. You may be asking yourself right about now, "Who is this person?" And I wouldn't blame you in the slightest, as you never really knew who my mother and I were anyway.

My name is Rosaura, and my mother Herminia worked as a maid for your estate during my childhood. I don't suppose that would ring any bells either, as you couldn't even be bothered to attend her…… [Read More]

Changing Value of Beauty

Words: 870 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 20524047

Welcoming the Metro Sexual Male and Saying Goodbye to the "Perfect" Woman

Beauty has always been emphasized in popular culture. But currents are pulling in different directions today as the myth of women's perfection is heightened by the exposure of photoshopped pictorials and as female comics like Lena Dunham take the "sexy" out of Sex and the City by portraying realistic womanhood with all its fat, wrinkles, spots and imperfections. As for men, the once rugged masculinity of the John Wayne type has given over to the Bradley Cooper/Tim Gunn type of well-groomed "metro sexuality." In one sense, it appears that the idea of woman as goddess is being, to an extent, displaced (or at least rivaled) by the idea of man as Adonis. In short, beauty -- in terms of manicured nails, good skin, and full-bodied hair -- is no longer just for women.

Evidence for this stunning claim…… [Read More]

Beauty Exchange

Words: 1249 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88695085

Beauty Exchange

The documentary The Beauty Exchange displays the life of typical Czech women in the 21st century struggling with the image of beauty. Every person is shaped by the world around them and the basis for what a woman should look like has been instilled in society through magazines, TV, movies, advertisements, celebrities. The challenges that women are constantly facing are perfect skin, gorgeous hair, flawless make-up, good figure, fashionable style and these things have grown to be such an important part of today's society.

One would think that it was women who determined fashion trends, since they are the ones who spend so much money and effort looking good when each one comes out. Yet, this current documentary shows that is not exactly the truth. In fact, women do not play as large of a part as one may think in the process of creating and popularizing fashion…… [Read More]

" Although she had very little food for herself, she always had a great deal to give to others. She looked like a grandmother from an old-fashioned movie, although I couldn't give Marie a fairytale ending, only a ramp and a mended, but still-broken shack.

Marie would stay with us as we worked, anxious to be of help in any way that she could: she always offered us a handkerchief for our brows or a cold drink when we needed those things the most. I knew that living without air conditioning was normal for her, and so I tried to will myself not to care. She chatted with us, and she often told me how much I reminded her of her son, now grown, who lived far away.

Every day a few minutes before eleven, she would excuse herself. In the stillness of the heat, I would hear the phone…… [Read More]

Biology Qs the Primary Source

Words: 829 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Thesis Paper #: 82910581

Most fungi can also reproduce through sexual reproduction both with the same organism mixing gametes and with reproduction between two separate organisms. The cells of many fungi are primarily copies of each other, without differentiation of organs (except in the fruiting sections of the organism, such as the mushrooms and molds typically visible and known to humans).

6)

Fungi are considered a separate kingdom for several reasons. They are different from plants in their inability to produce energy from sunlight, and in fact most grow in dark places. Unlike animals and many protozoa, they cannot move; unlike most protozoa, they exist almost entirely as multicellular and colonial organisms.

7)

The various classifications of fungi are determined based on their method(s) of reproduction. Zygomycota produce both asexual and sexual spores, while Basidiomycota rarely produce asexually and produce a different type of sexual spore. Ascomycota produce asexual spores, and can also grow…… [Read More]

SOCIOLOGICAL TERMS (Terms in Italics)

Varsity Jackets, Subcultures, and the Function of Sports in Society

In sociological terms, the varsity letter jackets worn by the students would be considered status symbols because they have specific social connotations that correspond to achievements that are valued by the group. They represent group identity in high school based on membership in sports teams. In many cases, sports teams also feature subcultures in which group norms and values are used by members of the group to maintain a degree of exclusivity to membership in their group as well; in the high school setting, these would typically be referred to as cliques.

In general, competitive sports can be viewed from the structural-functional sociological approach or from the symbolic-interaction approach. In the former, sports would be viewed primarily in connection with their functions, such as a means through which participants maintain physical fitness or pursue enjoyment;…… [Read More]

loss are common concepts in poetry that have been explored by men and women alike, across time and across cultural boundaries. Two such poets are Louise Labe, a French, Renaissance poet and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, a New Spanish nun and Baroque poet. In Sonnet 23 by Labe and Sonnet 165 by Cruz, issues of love, loss, and impermanence are explored through imagery and tone.

In Sonnet 23, Labe attempts to understand why her lover no longer finds her attractive or no longer wants to have a relationship with her. Labe asks, "What good is it to me if long ago you/eloquently praised my golden hair, compared to my eyes and beauty to the flare/of two suns where, you say, love bent the bow, sending the darts that needled you with grief?" In the sonnet, the narrator claims that she was once compared to the sun, which is…… [Read More]

Spade and Philip Marlowe comparison

Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe

Although Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe have been portrayed by Humphrey Bogart in the cinematic versions of The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep, respectively, each portrayal is a polar opposite of the other. Raymond Chandler has described Philip Marlowe as "a white knight in a trench coat," whereas Dashiell Hammett described Sam Spade as "a blond Satan" in The Maltese Falcon. In each respective novel and film, Spade and Marlowe embody the character traits that were given to them by Chandler and Hammett.

In The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, Philip Marlowe is embodies character traits that allow him to act like a "white knight in a trench coat." From the beginning of the novel, Marlowe has qualities that are very similar to that of a knight. For example, Marlowe states, "I was neat, clean, shaved and sober, and…… [Read More]
