Notebook is a decidedly fantastic work of cinema. It depicts love and its power in a most fantastic way, and it presents dementia (or Alzheimer's disease) in a most fantastic way. Still, due to its subject matter and its mythic, ethereal approach to it, it actually is able to produce an emotional reaction from its audience. Exactly what sort to emotion it evokes is largely dependent on the nature of that audience. However, in order to produce its desired effect, it takes a fair amount of license with the way that dementia is portrayed in this movie -- which is worthy of deconstructing.
The film is narrated by an older gentleman and an older woman named Allie who are in a nursing home. The former is narrating a love story to the latter which actually takes place in the 1940's and depicts the interaction of an adolescent boy, Noah, and….


Didon notes the effect of these often false memories on her own mind. She writes, "Might not Mrs. Minnie S. Brooks help me to remember what I am? Might not Mrs. Lou Fox help me to remember what I am not?" (Didon). This is cause and effect at its best, for the bits of memories she writes down cause her to think hard about her own life and what she is attempting to do with it. She is lost in memories of earlier times as she wades through the entries that do not seem to make any sense, and they "cause" her to write this essay, sharing these bits and pieces with the world. The effect of her writing, and the memories in her notebook, is to encourage others to do the same, in hopes of someday discovering her creativity and storytelling abilities.

Ultimately, the cause and effect of reading this….

Project Management Notebook
This report provides a resourcing plan, a risk management plan, as well as a leadership and management plan for a three-day music festival to be held in Country Victoria during the 2016 Australia Day Weekend. The report also discusses the chosen approach for each plan, clearly highlighting why other alternatives may not be suitable for this type of project.

Resourcing Plan

Project resources generally fall in three categories: labor (human resources), equipment and facilities (such as machinery and venue) and materials (consumables such as stationery) (Thomsett, 2010). The type and quantity of resources required in each category is often determined by the nature and complexity of the project (Winch, 2010). A complex project such as an infrastructure construction project, for instance, would require more permanent staff and sophisticated equipment due to the time-consuming and resource-intensive nature of the project. However, a less complex project such as a three-day music festival….

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.

Updated Proverb: A broken toe can hurt, but a broken heart can kill.

Metaphors: Obscure or Illuminate? Didactic literature with its use of metaphors can sometimes obscure the message, as….

Madam Eglantyne the Nun, is also an ironic charater. She eats in a very refined manner and attempts other fine characteristics such as speaking French, although she fares poorly at this. Ironically, not all her language is pure, as she swears cosntantly by "St. Loy," a saint renowned for not swearing. Unlike the general conception of the Nun, she is very concerned with outward appearances and did not much care for human beings. Indeed, she cared much more for her three dogs than the human beings around her. Another irony is that she has a coral trinket to fight worldly temptations, which is clearly failing badly.

A second character is the Friar, Hubert. While he is jolly, merry, and festive, his actions are nevertheless evil and cunning. He impregnates girls, for example, and marries them off. He deceived the faithful by hearing confessions for a fee, and even begged from poor….

The probability commercial success was an assumed input, a constant. It was 0.8. This figure went into the Expected Commercial Value calculation, which was the NPV multiplied by the probability of technical success and the probability of commercial success. The NPV and ECV calculations do not have the power to derive a new probability of commercial success.

The NPV, including the probability of commercial success, is $11.099 million. If the current assumptions about costs and profits hold, then this product will be successful. The current projections are for sales going out ten years that will deliver an NPV of $22.2 million, versus development costs and marketing costs of around $6.6 million.….

Return Native Land
Autonomy and Self-Definition in Cesaire's Notebook of a Return to the Native Land

The concept of selfhood is one of the most complex and essential elements in Aimee Cesaire's book-length poem Notebook of a Return to the Native Land. There is a constant dialogue -- often an argument -- between the external and internal elements that attempt to define and control the identity of the speaker. At times, there is even a marked consciousness in the speaker's resolve to deny external influences (Cesaire). Even here, though the very refusal speaks of a certain acknowledge influence. Furthermore, the fantasies of autonomy, or at least freedom from the immediate external influence that the speaker perceives, are themselves dominated by large-scale external forces. After dismissing a cop in his immediate reality, the speaker reflects on his own fragility in respect to the Earth and "its grandiose future -- / the volcanoes will….

"Sonnet 130" by Shakespeare and "Sonnet 23" by Louis Labe both talk about love, as so many sonnets do. Their respective techniques however, differentiate them from each other. Shakespeare uses a rhyme scheme that became known as Shakespearean rhyme scheme or English rhyme. He writes about love in a sarcastic manner though. He is mocking the traditional love poems and the usual expressive manner in which women are often compared to. It is ironic in a way because Shakespeare himself also uses the very techniques in his previous writing when he is writing from a man's point-of-view and describing a woman. But in this sonnet he uses the technique of mocking this exaggerated comparison. Usually women are compared to having skin as white as snow, however, in reality, Shakespeare points out, women don't really fit this description, "If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun."

Louis Labe however, does….

Art of the Critique Film
PAGES 8 WORDS 2817

The birds flying away in the end are representative of the freedom to love each other that Allie and Noah now have with each other. No physical bounds can restrain them. These elements became apparent on the fourth viewing. I then went back through the scenes to see if bird imagery was hiding in other scenes. Birds were found throughout the story, such as Noah providing bread for Allie to feed the birds, a mockingbird on the porch after they make love, etc. Upon closer examination, this emerged as a central tool for conveying the theme that Noah and Allie's love was as wild and free as the birds.
An analysis of "The Notebook" is a prime example of how the technique of viewing the film several times until the layers emerge can reveal deeper meanings with each viewing. In order to understand how the various elements of the film….

speech of a public institution's faculty member to be protected under the Pickering/Connickline of cases, what criteria must be satisfied? Do these criteria suitably balance the interests of faculty members and the institution in the higher education context?
There are really two key principles that must be satisfied. The first is that the court determines whether the speech in question hinges on a matter of public concern. If it does, the court takes further criteria into consideration such as:

Whether the statement impairs discipline in school or harmony amongst superiors or amongst cookers.

Whether the statement has a negative impact on close working relationships

Whether the speech interferes with the way the operator usually conducts his business,

Yes, these criteria take the interests of faculty members and school into consideration.

Specifically, what was the fatal flaw in the instructor's speech? Was it the profanity itself? Or was it the belittling nature of the speech? Or….

Cultural Power
Karl Marx, Max Weber, Antonio Gramsci and Pierre Bourdieu all conceptualize culture power in different ways. Each identifies the agent (the specific social group) which acquires and makes use of cultural power as well as the means by which the agents acquire and maintain cultural power.

As Marx and Engels observe in The German Ideology, "The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it" (64). Thus, for Marx, laborers were the specific group that needed to acquire power from the elites (capitalists), owners of the means of production. The means of production were, of course, the laborers. Communism was the ideology that would free the laborers from subservience to the owners of capital.

For Weber, culture….

PC Magazine found that the Acer uses only "39 while idle and a miserly 62 while running our CineBench benchmark test," during typical use of applications, which is "less electricity than many lightbulbs!" (Domingo 2009). The only downside is that the graphics are not particularly strong on this budget device, making playing online games less of a compelling experience than on more expensive units: however, given that the library wishes to encourage serious and concentrated use of its online resources, this could be viewed as a bonus!
A laptop may be favored by some library users who wish to have mobility as they circulate around the library. However, there are several logistical problems with using a laptop. First of all, laptops are more easily stolen, a real concern in a large library system with many patrons and a limited amount of librarians to supervise them. Laptops can also be easily….

decision to go along with his boss, Tom, notwithstanding his better judgment, he was uncomfortable. After all, he knows in advance that the quality of the products he will be providing to the local schools is terrible. How could he in good conscience deliver pens that leak and notebooks with pages that come apart easily.
hat ethical issues are raised in this story? The very fact that schools in the area have trusted the company Sam works for, and that the products he has delivered to the schools have previously been of good quality, providing them with shoddy products at this point in his job puts his reputation in jeopardy. Besides his personal issues (reputation, values, responsibilities), the ethical issues raised include: a) there is deception when you sell products the customer believes are worthy but in fact they are not worthy; b) when you knowingly charge the same price….
