He has won numerous other awards, including the Golden Globe Award and the Grammy Award (Ibid).

Unfortunately for Horner, this success has also been a source of huge controversy. He has been criticized for ofter transposing hooks, orchestral motifs, or even larger passages from other musical scores of his own or more controversially from other composers and from other major motion pictures. These allegations are the main points of ferocious debate between supporters and detractors of Horner. hatever the case, one must admit that the raw power of the music has one going all the way in their matching up their attention and their emotion immediately with film characters who have become cultural and cinematic icons in an unforgiving world ("Filmtracks").

Etheridge Knight's Dark Prophecy I Sing of

Words: 311 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 43738958

Etheridge Knight's "Dark Prophecy: I Sing of Shine"

As much as I love lyric poetry, I also love how Etheridge Knight's "Dark Prophecy: I Sing of Shine" has an epic scope. He brings to light a hidden aspect of our common American history by focusing on the sinking of the Titanic. Instead of going down with the ship, his hero Shine swims to safety. Symbolically, wealthy passengers who would look down on this black man now desperately offer him "million dollar checks." Now that their life is at risk, what they used to value so much is actually worthless in the harsh, natural environment of the sea. This highlights a frequently-discussed aspect of the Titanic sinking, namely the difference between the experience of the lower-class steerage passengers and the wealthy elites, only Knight's poem (unlike the James Cameron epic) brings to light the racial dynamics of this divide.

I find James Cameron's Titanic (1997) one of the greatest movies of our generation. This film is the mystical representation of the human experience through time. The story of Jack and Rose depicts something significant than the simple love story. Through Rose, this movie represents the struggle for freedom that woman of that time wanted to acquire. Similarly, Jack shows the freedom to run wild that we all yearn for. Hence, this movie is the most beloved movie of the 21st century as it has depicted the legendary story for generations that can even stir the souls of the people in the future.

Risk Workshops Allow for a Strong Modeling

Words: 605 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 33201220

Risk workshops allow for a strong modeling process of any project management problem. Risk workshops, when conducted effectively produce a prioritized list of risks that has an assigned action and stakeholders attached to that risk. As a project manager all risks rely on the details of the project. I would always expect to be briefed on any changes in budget, deadline or change in objective. Identifying risks that address these issues is important in assessing the value of risk workshops.

Prioritization of key principles and objectives is imperative in the project management way of business. Understanding the difference between a threat and a priority is essential for success. High-priority opportunities should always be addressed first since they compose the main objectives and goals for that project. Threats are important but should not cause the project to come off the tracks.

Historical Impact of Melodrama Film

Words: 1951 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 62307682

Film: The Historical Impact of Melodrama

In the first half of the 19th century, classical cinema was the norm in the American film industry, and filmmakers had become accustomed to uniform styles for creating visuals and sounds used in making motion pictures. Due to the dominance of this distinctive cinematic style, viewers had come to anticipate certain stylistic choices for certain narratives. However, by the second half of the century, melodrama had become the most popular kind of theatrical entertainment, and according to illiams, it successfully tested the boundaries set by the classical Hollywood style (353). By definition, melodrama is a genre in film designed to appeal to the emotions of the audience. The style derives its name from the music it uses to create tension, accompany action, and generate mood; and it is characterized by moral polarization, pathos, heightened emotions and extravagant theatricality. Its popularity in the 19th century…… [Read More]

Graves, R.N. (1995). Hardy's "The Convergence of the Twain." The Explicator, 53 (2): 96-99.

In this essay, the eventual unity of the iceberg and the Titanic is described as a kind of love relationship. Ironically, the supposedly unsinkable ship and the iceberg were 'born for one another' to create a historical, real life metaphor of the folly of humanity. The word 'consummation' at the end of the poem is given great significance. There is a kind of humor to how the jarring hemispheres -- the 'shaken world' -- makes the crash seem like a common wedding night metaphor -- 'the earth moved.' The unity of ship and iceberg is like a sexual union of an overly willing groom and a cold bride. The ship is an illustration of the Victorian folly of trying to overcome the natural world -- both the coldness of the sea and also human sexuality.

The way that the director deals with the response of the various characters to the disaster is also filled with psychological depth and intrigue. The film also deals with the way that people respond to situations of life and death. Others would argue that the depth and intellectual range of a film like Titanic is not nearly as intensively "artistic" as Wild Strawberries. In other words, the suggestion is that there is an intrinsic difference between these two films.

On the one hand I would agree that Wild Strawberries is much more complex and "artistic" film than a commercial film like Titanic. One of the reasons for this view is that Wild Strawberries demands a much more intensive response and is more thought-provoking than Titanic. On the other hand one also has to acknowledge that Titanic has moments of depth and insight, even though it is a more popular and…… [Read More]

Ode on a Grecian Urn by John

Words: 1175 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 69745790

Ode on a Grecian Urn" by John Keats; "The Convergence of the Twain" by Thomas Hardy; and "Fern Hill" by Dylan Thomas. Specifically, it will identify the common theme in these three poems, which is time. Time stops in all three poems for various reasons, and adds to the impact of each poem in a special way.

COMMON THEME

In "Ode on a Grecian Urn," Keats is celebrating the past, stopped in time for a moment on an ancient Grecian urn. Time stands still on the urn, and all the people depicted on it are caught in a fleeting moment of time. Nothing around them can ever change, from the trees, to their love, to their age. "Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare; / Bold Lover, never, never canst thou kiss, / Though winning near the goal yet, do not grieve; / She cannot fade, though thou…… [Read More]

Human Error and isk Taking

When a new ship is built and has a lot of imagination built into it, the quality that is ascribed to the ship is that it is unsinkable. This was said of the Titanic: "The captain can, by simply moving an electric switch, instantly close the doors throughout, practically making the vessel unsinkable." (They Said It. Some Memorable Lines) This was reported in Irish News and Belfast Morning News, June 1st, 1911, on the incomplete Titanic. (They Said It. Some Memorable Lines)

It is very difficult to say why accidents are found to occur as the definition of accidents itself is that they are events out of the ordinary and dictionary alternatives for accident are considered to be disaster, catastrophe, misfortune, calamity, mishap and mistake.

In the frequently dicey and volatile early twenty-first century economy, it is clear that high art has managed to maintain its value in a way that the mortgage of a Florida homebuyer or the Beanie Baby collection of a midwestern housewife have not.

Yet, every major aspect of the Internet builds on the strengths of those prior media forms.

Cultural Acceleration

The development of technology has allowed for cultural acceleration, as each media form starting with the telegraph represents an improvement in the speed and/or scope of communication (Carey, 2010). The telegraph separated transportation from communication, which was the first step. The telephone increased speed further, and wireless telegraph set the foundation for later wireless technologies. Radio and television, for example, were based on wireless broadcast, which enabled communications to reach a broader audience. here the telephone and telegraph introduced an accelerated pace to communications, the impacts of any one given communication were individual. News of the Titanic sinking, for example, was carried through a network of different messages on different media (Carey, 2010). Such large-scale impacts of communication on society became commonplace with radio. Television had yet more potency as a communications…… [Read More]

Many people in the present actually have problems determining whether or not it still exists and this amplifies the problem. hile most would prefer to believe that the American Dream never left and that anyone has the chance to make it in the American society, the reality is that there are a lot of interfering factors that make it difficult for people to achieve their goals in spite of the fact that they go through great trouble with the purpose of doing so.

Darwinism and the Standard Social Science Model

Darwinism and the Standard Social Science Model

If the Standard Social Science Model is mistaken, then we are less altruistic than would otherwise be the case'.

Put another way, the same statement could read, "If culture is not the underlying cause of human behavior, then human beings are more selfish than they would be if culture were the underlying cause of human behavior." An evaluation of this statement rests not only on an assessment of the truth of each part, but also on the relationship between the two parts of the claim. Is having A (a false presumption put forth by the SSSM) the condition for having B (self-centered human beings)? Let us investigate the premise as well as the argument.

These are the best that Germany and the Soviet Union have at the same time and, while this is a known fact in most other history books for Germany, the authors of "When Titans Clashed" show better the importance of great generals for the final victory of Soviet Union as well. A new generation of generals, replacing the ones that had died in the purges of the 1930s, show their talents in all the battles of the Eastern front and, subsequently, in the conquest of erlin. The general acceptance is that these generals could have had even greater success had they not been caught in a political game, where the Commander in Chief, Stalin, was always aware of potential successes that could impact his authority.

The general opinion that the authors seem to share and promote in the book seems to rely on the main idea that, while the Western…… [Read More]

Ultimately, the survivors were reduced to throwing the wounded overboard, and only after they had been reduced to fifteen men, "almost naked; their bodies and faces disfigured by the scorching beams of the sun," were they finally rescued by the Argus, which had set sail six days earlier to search for the raft and the wreck of the Medusa (Savigny & Correard 203).

Increasing Nudity in TV and Movies

Nudity in Television

Nudity is increasing in the television shows and movies with every passing day. More number of actresses and models agree to do nude shoots. As the technology is also advancing at a fast pace, even young children have access to such nude photo shoots and scenes by making use of the internet. It can be said that actresses and models are signing contracts for nude scenes and shoots because the benefit from the aforementioned actions can be two-fold. Firstly, the payment for the shoot increases with nudity and so does the popularity and rating of the actresses and models. However, what is important for us to analyze is the impact that this increasing trend of nudity and vulgarity is leaving on the entertainment industry with respect to the ethical dilemmas that it must face.

Meanwhile in the journal Du Bois Review (Parker, et al., 2009, p. 194) the authors point to racism and patriotism as key themes for the 2008 Democratic primary election. "Race was a consistent narrative" used by those opposed to Obama, Parker explains (p. 194). Both Clinton and the Republicans "used racial references" to attack Obama, including the attacks on Obama "for his perceived inability to connect to 'real working Americans'" (p. 194).

The Republican sideshow called "Joe the plumber" attacked Obama with the charge that Obama was "seeking to take money from hardworking 'real Americans' to give it to 'those people'" (p. 194). Clinton questioned Obama's patriotism suggesting that he was not a "real" American. Parker notes that when Governor Dukakis ran for president as a Democrat, he was attacked but no one questioned whether he was "a real American as they did with Obama" (p. 195).

CFACC and AOC are, by their very nature, located several hundred, sometimes thousands of miles from the air battle. And, as emphasized prior, we understand that technology allows command far more specific details than in the history of the military. That being said, no amount of technology can translate a blip on a screen to an actual threat, and react with the appropriate response within milliseconds. One would think, for instance, that with the thousands upon thousands of dollars the service spends on training their pilots, the number of scenarios engendered, and the amount of air time required to pilot a multimillion dollar piece of extraordinary equipment that command would acknowledge that there needs to be a certain level of trust and allowance for experience and pilot assessment of various high stress situations.

Centralization and Decentralization in Public

Words: 1927 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96300042



Related to this concept of "myth" is the concept of "vision." A vision can transform an organization's ideology or sense of purpose into a road map for the future (Bolman, 2008,p. 255). Vision can translate into principles being integrated into the very fabric of the organization. Vision can foster the development of an organization's culture that predicates itself on hard work and determination; determination to attain specific benchmarks, this determination can quickly metastasize through the entire organization (Bolman, 2008, p. 256).

The question then becomes what administrative structure is more adept at handling such conditions. Is a more centralized "top-down" approach similar to the management styles of former Home Depot CEO Robert Nardelli and President Jimmy Carter the most beneficial? These management styles have often been lauded for their micromanagement and intense hands on approach defined by their incessant need to be involved in the every decision making process.

Wilson, a student of public administration, favored more governmental regulation and action during a time when large monopolies still existed. He saw the role of public administration as "government in action; it is the executive, the operative, the most visible side of government, and is of course as old as government itself" (Wilson 235). The pendelum swung, though, and the government was blamed for many of the ills that caused the Great Depression. Franklin oosevelt, despite being called draconian, knew that he had to launch programs that would have a quick effect upon the struggling economy; resulting the New Deal -- a complex, interlocking set of programs designed to produce jobs, economic recovery, and fiscal reform of banking and Wall Street -- exactly what was needed, it seems to turn the Titanic in a new direction (Badger).

Satan (the devil as defined in the bible) has been connected to the book in a strange manner. He has been blamed as the reason for the various kinds of internal spiritual conflicts in women. It does not define Satan well enough to explain why driving him away from one's mind can be a solution to problems in life. God has been stated as someone who loves everyone. hile this does comply with the Bible, it can create confusions. God has been mentioned as someone who longs to have a relationship with everyone to fill a place in his heart. This can imply that god is not perfect and needs us to make him complete.

Art Analysis Landscape With the

hile illiams writes of the "tingling" of the new year, the "tingling" is not merely natural, not simply the world sprouting into rebirth. It is a very human, manufactured kind of celebration of the world's bounty.

Thus to read the painting as a kind of a mockery of Icarus and the artist's desire for transcendence may not be entirely fair. Brueghel, after all could have just shown Icarus falling into the hungry sea, unnoticed by nature. The key to a more nuanced interpretation of the painting is evident in Brueghel's deliberate choice of a perspective. According to David Cole, this is a "crucial aspect" of understanding the poem (Cole 2000). "The landscape and the action are seen from above -- from the viewpoint, in other words, of Daedalus. The force of the picture is thus, I think, to move the viewer not only to recognize the unconcern for catastrophe inherent…… [Read More]

Habits of Highly Effective People

Words: 3220 Length: 12 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 4488174

" Independent will is defined by Covey as "the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act, rather than be acted upon" (148). This goes back to Covey's original principle regarding being proactive.

hile the ideas of being proactive and prioritizing are widely accepted as essential parts of effective management, where Covey seems to go off track a bit in this chapter is his downgrading of the importance of efficiency. Covey believes that there is too much focus on efficiency and not enough focus on developing rich relationships. This may very well be the case, but in today's technology-driven environment, efficiency is king, and it is highly unlikely that it will be dethroned anytime soon.

here Covey's model does make sufficient sense for the working world of the 21st century is in regard to prioritizing. Certainly not a new…… [Read More]

Raphael's Painting School of Athens

Words: 1447 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 95297394

Support for the figure being Diogenes rather than Socrates has been found in the fact that he is prone, and alone, which seems to suggest Diogenes' status as an antisocial Cynic -- he also called himself a 'dog.' However, the painting seems to depict in chronological order in the development of ancient philosophy, of the viewer moves his or her gaze from foreground to background and from left to right. This would suggest that the figure is Socrates. The bowl besides the lying figure if it is Socrates could symbolically signify his drinking of hemlock also suggests the death of Christ. Raphael, a Neo-Platonist in his philosophy, thus gave particular importance to Socrates' martyrdom (Bell 1995).

The artwork, as a glorification of the human, is sublimely Renaissance in nature, and typical of the period but it is also unique in the way that it celebrates philosophers and their intellectual arts,…… [Read More]

American Jewish Writers Have Come

Words: 1771 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 21811646



Catherine Rainwaterhand finds in the writer Ozick, along with Hazzard and Redmon a common ground in that their work is witnessing some of their deepest concerns. "Each of these writers contemplates the "welling together" of "impressions" and experiences in a "flow of time" that sweeps humans along toward apparently predestined ends. Caught up in this flow, the characters of these three contemporary authors find only tentative meaning and design in an indefinite, incomplete past" (Rainwaterhand, 69). Rainwaterhand points out that the characters of these three authors are haunted by their own past, just as their creators must be hunted not only by their own personal past, but also by that of their people and the whole world. And when you are born in New York, living with your Jewish family in Bronx and growing up in the 1930s in a country that was going through a Great Depression, amid anti-Semitic…… [Read More]

Presidential Character by James Barber

Words: 1550 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63121539

He seems to draw easy causal connections between policy and personality that deny the exterior circumstances of history. For example, he suggests that Hoover's rigid personality made him unable to accept changes in classical economic theory during the beginning of the Great Depression, and to adopt a more Keynesian approach. Barber asserts that it was not the conventional wisdom of the time that hampered Hoover as much as his own character, despite the fact that few people really could assuredly state they had the 'answer' to the financial crisis at that time. The adaptive-negative aspects of Johnson's personality made that president similarly resistant to the idea of pulling out of Vietnam, and his egoism made him unwilling to be seen as 'losing' the war -- but what about the pressures of the Cold War during that era? Historians also might find some objection to Barber's psychoanalyzing so many major presidential…… [Read More]

Edward Gordon Craig The Master

Words: 1708 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 15191036

"hen (the stage-director) interprets the plays of the dramatist by means of his actors, his scene-painters, and his other craftsmen, then he is a craftsman - a master craftsman; when he will have mastered the use of actions, words, line, color, and rhythm, then he may become an artist," wrote Craig (Pepiton 2008). Because of Craig, set designers are revered as artists and equal partners with directors, actors, and authors. ithout Craig, classes in set design would not have the prestige they do today. No director would dare to embark upon a 'black box' production of Shakespeare or opera. Because of Craig, even those directors and designers who still see the value of realism strive to create impressions in the hearts of the audience, rather than literal representations of a drawing-room reality.

But the film's aesthetic brings forth another Marxist tenant even more effectively, perhaps, than Marx ever could, that the technological capabilities and innovations born of the Industrial Revolution have polarized the haves and have-nots even more effectively. The leisured classes enjoy more leisure, while the workers toil on machines, the leisured classes enjoy more manufactured goods and services produced upon the property they own, enjoying the benefits of technology while those who work hardest profit least from technology. Industrialization and the technological revolution that enabled the factory system to exist made class divisions even more permanent and inexorable, even while the idea that 'anyone' could work hard and prosper through labor and achieve land ownership is a myth that sustained many workers, though only a few could accomplish this dream of becoming part of the non-laboring middle classes.

The research showed that humans have been naturally drawn to bodies of water since day one, and the technology now exists that allows people of all walks of life to safely and routinely explore the underwater depths in various ways for fun and profit. The research also showed that notwithstanding its current hefty production price at $1.4 million per vehicle, it is clear that the sQuba has a lot going for it in terms of high-quality design and performance, and mass production of the vehicle could reasonably be expected to reduce its final sticker price to the typical consumer for such a car.

In the weeks after Hitler's appointment as Reich Chancellor "…stormtroopers broke into synagogues and desecrated the religious furniture, smashed the windows of Jewish shops, and subjected Jews to random acts of humiliation," like forcing them to drink castor oil and shaving their beards forcibly in public, Evans goes on.

The Jewish judges and lawyers were not spared from this violence. All over Germany, the Nazi stormtroopers "burst into courthouses… dragged Jewish judges and lawyers out of the proceedings and beat them up…" (Evans). It is hard to imagine the horror that participants must have experience during court proceedings, to have armed storm troopers burst in and grab the judge, drag him into the street and beat him.

Alexander the Great Books on

Words: 1442 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88216034

Hamilton notes the biographies of Alexander often reflected the backgrounds of authors who wrote about him. For example, Sir William Tarn, a Scottish gentleman of the ritish imperial era, characterized Alexander as a chivalrous Greek gentleman with a missionary zeal to spread Greek civilization. In contrast, Fritz Schachermeyr, a German historian who had experienced the rise and fall of the Nazi Germany, described Alexander as a ruthless and cruel ruler, indulged "in deceit and treachery to gain his ends, as a 'Titanic' figure aiming at the conquest of the world."

oth Tarn and Schachermeyr are among the great modern historians of Alexander but even they could not escape personal biases.

The irony of Hamilton's book is that, although he is at pains in his discussion of the difficulty of writing about Alexander and is critical of biased historians, the book starts with a straightforward admission of a bias. Rejecting the…… [Read More]

For example, he notes that one out of eleven men is estimated to go through the correctional system throughout his life but the figures for nonwhites are even higher. Forty-nine percent of inmates are African-American and eighteen percent are Latino. What happens is that many of these black inmates are taken from cities and locked up in prisons built in rural areas. Residents of these communities are white men and women who have limited, if any, experience of living with people of color and are of working-class background. ome of them are young men right out of high school. Not surprisingly, this encounter often leads to violence and racial tension. Hallinan writes that "it is hard to ignore that those getting rich are usually white and those in prison are usually not" (p. xiii). In other words, the profitability of the prison-industrial complex is not only corrupting the system by…… [Read More]

Some of his assertions are controversial. He emphasizes the pernicious influence of the private prison industry but that industry began in 1983 and the number of private prisons today is around 150. Most of the prisons are still federally funded though Hallinan notes that the relatively small number of private prisons have developed a culture that has influenced other prisons -- namely, an emphasis "not on producing an improved inmate, one who will commit fewer crimes when released, but on producing a cheaper inmate" (p. 145). And given that the number of private prisons is growing and that the concept is being viewed as acceptable and effective by ever greater number of corrections officers, criminologists, politicians, and ordinary Americans, the influence is also likely to grow.

Another controversial point Hallinan makes is the idea that there is an identical logic behind military-industrial complex and the prison-industrial complex. He argues that the U.S. government exaggerated the threat of Communism in the 1950s to dramatically increase the defense budget and similarly the correctional system in the 1980s and '90s exaggerated the threat of crime to justify prison boom. There is always a risk of downplaying the real danger in such arguments, as there was indeed Communist bloc armed with nuclear weapons during 1950s and there were criminal gangs increasing the number of street shootings in 1980s. Hallinan, however, has a point because the crime rate does not justify the titanic prison boom that America has witnessed in the last thirty years. And there is a ground for linking prison-industrial complex to the military-industrial complex. Consider, for instance, the $77.5 million prison in Wallens Ridge, Virginia, which is "identical to the sophisticated sixteen-foot-high fence used by the Israeli government on the Golan Heights, according to the warden" (p. 204).

Going Up the River's only significant weakness is Hallinan's overemphasis on the role of corporations as the driving force behind prison boom. He does not, for example, discuss the fact that paroles have been decreased or even eliminated in some states, which might have accounted for the greater prison population. He does not also entertain the idea that tougher and longer sentences may be one of the reasons of the decreasing crime rate. Nevertheless, Hallinan's outrage directed at the prison-industrial complex is justified. It has gone awry.

Deinstitutionalization

Words: 1789 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 87366336

Both interviewees and quantitative data indicators point to a criminal justice system in that has been positively impacted by a new ecological presence, the MHC. (Trupin, and Richards 52).

Conclusion

To sum up, while information is not completely conclusive, it is likely that the movement of deinstitutionalization has a direct relationship with the increase in the population of the mentally ill populations in jails and prisons. Many mental hospitals have been closed altogether. These hapless patients have been transferred to overworked community-based mental health clinics. This results in the dissipation of these patients over a wide variety of health care institutions. However, there is a great increase in the amount of mentally handicapped individuals amongst the jail and prison population. For this reason, there is a need for the expansion of mental-health services among the prison population. Also, mental health courts promise to provide relief.

eligious Liberty as Stated in the First Amendment

eligious Liberty

The practical and legal ramifications of religious liberty are not difficult to determine, for they follow from the theological implications of the concept of religious liberty. The idea of religious truth, such as defined by the North Carolina state government in 1776 which forbade anyone from serving who denied the truth of the Protestant religion, has no place in a country that holds religious liberty as law. Yet, religious liberty has not always been practiced, as North Carolina and Maryland (which was officially declared an Anglican state in 1692) both show. Today, the first amendment has been ratified to make such claims untenable. Nonetheless, many scholars question whether religious liberty itself is defensible. By acknowledging the right of religions to be exercised publicly, the U.S. constitution sets the stage for a massive fight between various and contending religious beliefs, which…… [Read More]

Being philosophically inclined, the exhibit that made the greatest impact on me and had me wandering around it various times was the marble statue of a group of figures -- naked men -- eyes closed, hands gently touching the shoulder of the one in front of them.

Academy Awards The Big Budget

Words: 324 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88744320

Yet, looking at the movie industry from a financial perspective, one cannot help to notice that sometimes the returns are quite lucrative on smaller budget films. Miramax's the English Patient cost just $46.7 million and grossed more than $230 million worldwide, along with capturing the Best Picture Oscar (Hoffman, 2005). Examples like this are significant to the financial management field, as they prove that even in Hollywood, where substance often counts for little, it is the substance behind a film that often matters more than the dollars backing it. Bigger is not always better, as box office flop Waterworld and many others can attest to. This translates into a plethora of other industries and should be something that every financial management professional should remember.

Sanctuary and Iconology the Piece

Words: 824 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 91499466

However, unlike Prometheus, Loki has been almost universally seen as evil. His eventual freedom is said to presage the death of all the Gods. This link between Loki and Prometheus, which has only (relatively) recently been understood by a culture versed in both Greek and Norse myths, is evidenced in this work by the fact that Prometheus' theft is being counter-pointed by the image of the Watcher deity posed for burial. In some ways, then, this piece suggests that Loki's judgment on the gods is welcomed. There is actually some historical precedence for this. "Ragnarok may appear to be the termination of all things but the Voluspa makes it quite clear that Ragnarok is not the end but rather a cleansing." Prometheus is visually exalted and the Watcher seems somehow evil even in death. The church itself is filled with darkness and a sense of monstrosity. So one would say…… [Read More]

Film History

Words: 8657 Length: 18 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 24941469

movie industry in America has been controlled by some of the monolithic companies which not only provided a place for making the movies, but also made the movies themselves and then distributed it throughout the entire country. These are movie companies and their entire image revolved around the number of participants of their films. People who wanted to see the movies being made had to go to the studios in order to see them. They made movies in a profitable manner for the sake of the studios, but placed the entire industry under their control and dominated over it. The discussion here is about some of those famous studios inclusive of that of names like Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Culver, RKO, Paramount Studios, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, Raleigh Studio, Hollywood Center Studio, Sunset Gower Studio, Ren-Mar Studios, Charlie Chaplin Studios and now, Manhattan Beach Studio.…… [Read More]

In 1996 Westinghouse/CS bought Infinity radio broadcasting and outdoor advertising group for $4.7 billion, a deal that was largely the result of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The Telecommunications Act heavily deregulated the media industry and allowed a company to significantly increase the amount radio stations it could own. In 1997, Viacom dealt its educational, professional and reference publishing businesses to Pearson for $4.6 billion, and retains Simon & Schuster. In 1999, CS bought King World Productions, the leading television program syndicator at that time, for $2.5 billion. On September 7, 1999, Viacom and CS announced their merger, a $50 billion deal. This was the largest media merger of that era, which came one-month after the FCC approved duopolies. Under this merger, the new Viacom had 33 television stations, eclipsing the FCC's 35% ownership cap. This cap was based on the amount of stations one company owns that reach 35%…… [Read More]

Conflict Between Jimmy Hoffa and

Words: 648 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 28529699

Perhaps Kennedy wanted to purge that bootlegging reputation from the Kennedy name. For example, while Bobby Kennedy publicly tried known Mafia figures, they still aided the Kennedy presidential campaign. Another Mafia historian notes, "Sam Giancana [a noted mob figure] helped to carry Cook County for the Kennedys in spite of a preelection insult from Bobby Kennedy, who brought Giancana in to face the McClelland Committee and humiliated him publicly with embarrassing questions" (Kelly, 2000, p. 138). Thus, Kennedy seemed driven to drive out organized crime from the country, and another speculation is that he became so worrisome during his presidential campaign that the Mafia was behind his assassination.

The Teamsters were notorious for their activities with organized crime, even before Hoffa took the helm. After Hoffa took over, there was even more illegal activity in the Union. The Teamsters had huge influence around the country because just about every industry…… [Read More]

risk in terms of privacy than our medical records...do you agree? Or, are your financial records more at risk, especially given events in the news lately. Which is greater in your mind (yes, you have to pick one)? Why?

Although keeping your medical records private is important, I believe that it is more important to keep your financial records private. Identity theft is one of the most prolific crimes of the modern era. As soon as someone has your information, they can hack into your bank account and take all your money or apply for credit cards in your name, leaving you broke. It is also very difficult to prove identity theft.

aymond Loewy. At first I thought I wanted to focus on a single design item that he was responsible for, such as the Lucky Strike logo, the coke bottle design or the shell icon for shell gasoline, or the minimalistic Loewy clock. However, I realized that primarily it would be difficult to find a single item that spoke to me more strongly than others: it would simply be impossible to choose, given how prolific Loewy was. However, it also became apparent that I wanted to focus on his unique design style that became as original as his fingerprint. While Loewy's design work was famous for a variety of reasons and was truly multifaceted, it's more interesting and complex to examine it as a body of work.

Martin Luther Biographical Sketch in This Essay

Martin Luther: Biographical Sketch

In this essay, I have presented a biographical sketch of one of the major "players" in the eformation i.e. Martin Luther. I have discussed his life starting from his birth till his death. In the conclusion, I have mentioned how important he was for the revolution in Europe and how Christians today can follow his footsteps and exemplary character.

At the same time as the Catholic Church made efforts for setting its base and went ahead as the most important and chief institute of religious conviction in the history of world, a lot of compromise were made so that the institution can build and advance further. Sorry to say, one of the sufferers of this Catholic flow was the true-connection-oriented Christianity. With the development and progress of the Catholic Church, the world witnessed the removal of the common man and the domination and unquestioned superiority of…… [Read More]
