Getting famous is more of a curse than a blessing for many reality television show winners such as Susan Boyle. There is evidence that fame is hurting Susan Boyle. "The concern is that Boyle's mental health is being sacrificed to line the pockets of her managers, record label and various hangers on," (TheImproper).
Just as with reality television, the image of the contestant is important in the Hunger Games. In the novel, Cinna is the stylist that helps Katniss with her image. How the contestants look is just as important as whether they will live or die. In reality television shows, the most important goal is to create controversy. "The reality is, people only watch things that are dramatic...People are drawn to dysfunctional behaviors, but you have to use that desire to watch it to create opportunities to teach," (Pinsky, cited by Greenfield). The function of the Hunger Games is….

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: How does Katniss's role in her family affect her behavior in the Games?
Analytical response essay: How does Katniss' role in her family affect her behavior in the Games?
Suzanne Collins' dystopian novel The Hunger Games depicts a world whose ethical values have been turned upside down. A dystopian novel is defined as "a futuristic, imagined universe in which oppressive societal control and the illusion of a perfect society are maintained through corporate, bureaucratic, technological, moral or totalitarian control" ("Dystopias," Readwritething). The older generation is morally bankrupt and preys upon the young for entertainment. This can be seen in the relationship of its heroine Katniss Everdeen to her family and the other characters in the novel, including Peeta Mallark, the boy from her district chosen as tribute. The young people in the novel must assume many adult responsibilities as a result of the world the older….

Cameras in "The Hunger Games"
The story of the book The Hunger Games is one set in a post-apocalyptic North American mess that has become a single city in the Rockies ruling over twelve districts. Originally it was thirteen, but one if these was, supposedly, completely destroyed in an uprising that has happened almost a quarter century ago. The twelve remaining districts provide products so that the central city, Panem, can survive, and the rulers in Panem make certain that there is no more dissension from the people in the districts. One of the main features in the books is that everyone is on camera much of the time. The central government controls the people by knowing what is happening at all times, and modifying their action by this knowledge. It is a tale straight out of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four in which the totalitarian government controls the people by….
Lottery Hunger Games
Picking children at random to be killed cruelly seems like an outlandish premise for any story, but remarkably, Suzanne Collins's 2008 novel The Hunger Games resembles Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery" in many ways. Both are about a cruel, senseless annual event, in which people are chosen at random in a lottery situation. The selected people face death, and their death is presented to the public as a form of entertainment. Both authors make powerful commentary about society being cruel, and both also suggest that individuals should speak out against the unjust and outmoded institutions of society. However similar these two stories may be, there are some significant differences between them. One is a short story, which allows for less character development. Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" is told from the point-of-view of a third person omniscient narrator, whereas Collins's novel is told from the first person perspective….
Teen Film: The Hunger Games and Red Dawn
The Hunger Games is not just a political movie than any teenage drama transcribed in the for the silver screen. Katniss Everdeen is not just trying to rescue her family but she must free an entire nation from dictatorial oppression and poverty by rebelling against the evil forces. However, Red Dawn was not that much different. It was a teen film that depicts on how a group of young men, guided by Jed Eckert along with his brother and two young women rebel against the Russians, Nicaraguan Cubans and paratroopers that have taken over a town.
In both films, rebellion is the only way of survival. In Red Dawn it is the communist forces and in Hunger games it is a vicious and dangerous tyrannical regime. In order to stop a total takeover, the teens in both movies have no choice but to band….
The late 1960's and early 1970's saw a polemical of two distinctive viewpoints on the trajectory of world hunger, food production, and global starvation. Dr. Paul Erlich, author of The Population Bomb espoused the idea that "humans would soon exhaust their ability to feed an ever burgeoning population" (Chou, H. June 7, 2010). Erlich's premise led to the inexorable conclusion that "global starvation was inevitable" (Easterbrook, G. September 16, 2009). The countervailing argument made by Nobel Prize winner Norman Borlaug was that innovative Green evolution agricultural techniques would produce "both reliable harvests, and spectacular output" (Easterbrook, G. September 16, 2009). Borlaug's work on "high yield agriculture" (Easterbrook, G. September 16, 2009) over sixty years in the developing world resulted in massive increases in total grain tonnage produced, grain output per acre, and global grain yields. Borlaug proved that the world could in fact produce more than adequate supplies of….

Hunger Games: Peeta and Katniss
In many ways, the root of The Hunger Games and its many characters lies in the experience of the author, writer Suzanne Collins. Prior to writing the successful trilogy that The Hunger Games is a part of, Collins had already written another series of novels, "The Underland Chronicles," (Green) and had worked at Nickelodeon on the children's show "ow! ow! ubbzy!" (Grossman). The latter fact directly influenced many different aspects of The Hunger Games, from its plot to the characterization of its two lead characters, Peeta and Katniss. For quite some time books, novels and other written works have inspired movies and television shows. hat Collins did that was so enticing to many of her readers and to a larger commercial audience in general was to take the inspiration from television to write her book. In particular, the author successfully exploited the reality television show theme….

Hunger Games vs. Great Gatsby
While seemingly quite different in terms of subject matter, the Hunger Games and Great Gatsby works are actually quite alike than they may seem. While a group of self-identified elites engaging in depravity and excess may not seem a lot like the life and death battles waged in the Hunger Games, there are a lot of parallels. The arc that most of those parallels follow is that there is a strict and gaping dichotomy between the rich and the poor in both stories. In both situations, there are a group of elites that are controlling the poor in one way or another and/or they otherwise have disdain and lack of regard for the same. However, the elites do not end up sailing off into the sunset in either story as things go awry for both sets of elites. While having power and riches may seem enticing….

Watch out for drink spiking, never drink and drive, the extra responsibility can save your life.atooing and body piercing are more dangerous because of the risk of infection and the complications that can result….
Type II Diabetes, also known as diabetes mellitus, is also called non-insulin-dependent diabetes or adult onset diabetes. It is a medical disorder that, due to a number of factors codependent with the modern world, is characterized by higher than normal blood glucose levels that play havoc with insulin deficiency and resistance. There is no cure, per se, for the disease, although if managed through exercise and diet it usually diminishes. However, if untreated, Type II Diabetes may become quite serious and require the medication of symptoms in order to the patient to maintain a productive life ("Diabetes Australia," 2010).
Diabetes is one of Australia's top six health priorities, besides being a serious global health risk. Scholars estimate about 8% of the population have clinically diagnosed diabetes, but only a limited number are actually diagnosed. The disease itself is considered to be related to natural influences from the developing world: rising obesity rates, lifestyle issues, and the general lack of exercise most Australians receive (Zimmer, 2002).
One of the more serious aspects of type II diabetes is the new prevalence of onset during later teen years, most likely completely due to rising obesity patterns in children. Symptoms for both children and adults range from chronic fatigue, general weakness and malaise to
This puts katniss in a tough situation because it would mean that she has to kill the member of her own district. She managed to make the judges withdraw their announcement due to her intelligence. Katniss knew that the game makers would not allow both of them to die. Therefore, she takes out some poisonous berries and gives some to her mate from the district. They plan to eat them so that they can both die which would mean the game makers would lose. That way, the game makers stopped them and both of them emerged winners. Katniss learns that, at such an instance, one has to take a risk even if it means her and the mate dying (Collin 290).
Katniss realized that she had to be rebellious against the capital and the game makers. This was the only way to win the game. Her aim was for them to….

As Michael Serazio (2012) points out, thanks to the Internet, we now live in a "premediated" world, in which press releases prepare the public to stay tuned for further press releases, as an all-out ad-campaign is unfolded to promote the latest movie, music release, or show (p. 416). Everything is prepped ahead of time, from the celebrity appearances to the photographers, to the clothing the celebs will be wearing, to the timing of events so that buzz reaches its greatest height when the product hits the shelves. Two websites created to drum up interest in two feature films, the latest installment of The Hunger Games series and the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, illustrate exactly what Serazio sees. This paper will compare and contrast the two sites and show how, in terms of an academic perspective, they illustrate just how "premeditated" and "premediated"….

Summary of the property
The transmedia concept is not a novelty these days, as the concept was first patented at the beginning of the 1990s. According to researchers, "The term transmedia was coined in 1991 by then-USC professor Marsha Kinder, while the transmedia storytelling concept was developed by current USC Annenberg professor Henry Jenkins. He describes transmedia storytelling as "a process in which integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes its own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story." (Tenderich, 2013) More precisely, transmedia allows….

However, the narrator eventually comes to acknowledge his ignorance after the blind man presents him with matters as seen from his point-of-view. John 14:22 applies perfectly in this situation, considering that it promotes the concept that individuals are probable to express more appreciation toward the world as a whole and toward things that previously seemed uninteresting. James 3:16 also applies in this situation because it emphasizes that jealousy and selfish ambition are probable to disrupt the peace within a family. The narrator has trouble enjoying life to the fullest because he is jealous and envious with regard to his wife's friends.

innovations in agricultural technologies, the dire predictions of global famine made by Stanford University Professor Paul . Ehrlich in his book, The Population Bomb (1968) have not materialized to date. Nevertheless, hunger continues to persist in many regions of the world, especially its major cities, due in large part to urbanization and 7.5 million people die of hunger each month (Holmes, 2008). The hunger that does exist in the world today is largely the result of increased urbanization and national political leadership that either uses food as a weapon or lacks the resources or will to ensure that adequate food distribution is achieved in their countries (Wurwag, 2014). To determine the facts, this paper provides a review of the relevant literature concerning urbanization and the urban structure to identify those factors that are most responsible for preventing adequate distribution of food to urban residents.
