ALFRED HITCHCOCK: A Master of Duality

For many, the name Alfred Hitchcock conjures hazy and disconnected memories of Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman in Rio, Tippi Hedren being chased by killer birds, or Jimmy Stewart in a wheelchair; but for others -- those that are somewhat more experienced with the work of Hitchcock -- the utterance of his moniker means much more. Indeed, many consider Hitchcock to be not only one of the most prolific and entertaining filmmakers, but also one of the most profound. A recurring -- and certainly intriguing -- motif that holds together his body of work is his incessant interest and portrayal of duality: the conflicting, yet in some ways similar, nature of life. That is to say, Hitchcock (and no other, on as prestigious a level) was able to brilliantly compare, reduce, and then reevaluate polar opposites that every human encounters. Love or hate, man…… [Read More]

" (Kundera: 60) at this point, a strong connection between body and soul is forged. Her mother is unwell, and Tereza wants to visit her. However, Tomas opposes this trip so she does not go. Tereza falls in the street hours later and injures herself. What follows is a series of small accidents which are symbols of her soul falling as well: "She was in the grip of an insuperable longing to fall. She lived in a constant state of vertigo." (Kundera: 61) the third step in the evolution of her dualism occurs when Tereza embarks on an extramarital affair with an engineer. She wants to become like Tomas hoping she can get back at him and his infidelities. The intimate relationship established between the two helps Tereza understand both her body and her soul. The touch of his hand on her breast "erased what remained of her anxiety. For…… [Read More]

American Horror Film Editor Gregory

Words: 728 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 16212856

While the characters and situations may not be extremely complex, there are things that bind the films together and make them attractive to the viewer. For example, some films, such as "osemary's Baby," "The Exorcist," and "The Eyes of Lara Mars" use sexual situations in the film to add to the feeling of horror and anticipation about what is to come. Most use very graphic violence, but others create characters that are intriguing and larger than life to get their message across (think of "Frankenstein" and even "Carrie").

Another interesting aspect of this book was the idea that not all horror films contain graphic horror at all. One author maintains films such as "Vertigo" are actually horror films because they manipulate some "problem of vision" within them (Kawin 103). Thus, this definition opens up an entire new batch of horror films if the viewer looks at them with another eye…… [Read More]

Nursing and Issue of Falls Are Responsible

Words: 1482 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97600896

Nursing and Issue of Falls

Falls are responsible for considerable morbidity, immobility, and mortality among older persons, especially those living in nursing homes. Falls can occur in a home, community, long-term rehabilitation, or acute care Setting (Laurence Z.. et.al, 1994). The risk of falls can be related mostly to mobility status, exposure to hazardous environments and risk-taking behaviors such as climbing ladders for seniors living in the community setting. Factors for a fall in hospitalized adults are greatly influenced by acute illness that often has a marked, albeit temporary, impact on physical and cognitive function compounded by care provided in unfamiliar surroundings in the long-term care setting, the risk factors for falls are influenced by impaired cognition, wandering or impulsive behavior, use of psychotropic medications, incontinence and urgency, lack of Exercise, unsafe environments, and low staffing levels. Patient falls are serious problems

Using Antibiotics

Words: 1386 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 98812868

Antibiotics

Penicillin

Mechanism of Action

Penicillin G, when injected into the patient, will act against actively proliferating penicillin-sensitive strains of bacteria (Drugs.com, 2011). This does not include several strains of staphylococci producing penicillinase or bacteria that are quiescent. The mechanism of action is inhibition of cell-wall mucopeptide biosynthesis. Penicillin G. works best against staphylococci groups A, B, C, G, H, L, and M, pneumococci, Neisseria meningitides, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Treponemapallidum, and many others.

Clinical Uses

Penicillin is used to treat serious infections, such as septicemia, pneumonia, endocarditis, pericarditis, empyema, and meningitis (Drugs.com, 2011). Penicillin is also indicated in cases of anthrax, botulism, actinomycosis, diphtheria, listeria infections, erysipelothrix endocarditis, severe infections of the oropharynx, lower respiratory tract, and genitals. Penicillin is also used to treat gonorrhea, syphyilis, rat-bite fever, and Haverhill fever. Only penicillin-sensitive bacteria should be treated due to the risk of creating penicillin-resistant strains. Although treatment should begin immediately in…… [Read More]

The sample analyzed was taken in November 2010 and compared against other samples drawn in ugust of 2010. This test highlights the ongoing exposure of the Gulf Coast population to toxic chemicals. Consequently, many people are projected to have long-term and severe health effects regardless of the "clean-up" operations present in the Gulf.

The residents seeking to evacuate desperately require help. One of the consequences of this chemical exposure is an increasingly prominent social fragmentation. Crime in the area has skyrocketed, with murders and violent crimes occurring more frequently in areas that were once very peaceful. s the situation becomes increasingly hopeless, many residents are turning against one another.

According to an article published by Al Jazieera English, the results of independent blood tests indicate high levels of toxic chemicals in residents living along the Gulf Coast. A blood sample analyzed for volatile solvents revealed elevated levels of ethylbenzene, styrene, and m, p-Xylene. Because of these abnormal test results, the people who have been exposed require the option of evacuating the polluted areas. Because they lack the support and financing to leave, the entire Gulf Coast remains in severe danger. All the chemicals found in the blood sample are extremely hazardous to human beings. They cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, kidney damage, digestive upset, lung damage, burning pain in the nose and throat, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, pulmonary edema, somnolence, cancer, lack of muscle coordination, dizziness, confusion, alterations in body balance, irritation of the skin, eyes, nose and throat, difficulty breathing, delayed reaction time, memory difficulties, stomach discomfort, liver damage, unconsciousness, lethargy, memory deficits, vertigo, hematological disorders, and neurological disorders. The sample analyzed was taken in November 2010 and compared against other samples drawn in August of 2010. This test highlights the ongoing exposure of the Gulf Coast population to toxic chemicals. Consequently, many people are projected to have long-term and severe health effects regardless of the "clean-up" operations present in the Gulf.

The residents seeking to evacuate desperately require help. One of the consequences of this chemical exposure is an increasingly prominent social fragmentation. Crime in the area has skyrocketed, with murders and violent crimes occurring more frequently in areas that were once very peaceful. As the situation becomes increasingly hopeless, many residents are turning against one another. The industries that have sustained life along the coast, oil and seafood production, have come to a halt, leaving people with very few options. The cost of survival in the Gulf of Mexico is simply too high, and many have become involved in a fight for their very lives.

It is my belief that the only viable remedy to this solution involves providing assistance to the individuals and families wishing to relocate, as the responsible parties are not answering the call of the victims. BP insists that nothing is wrong, and the media and government, for the most part, are standing behind this message as well. Therefore, it is incumbent upon the citizens to reach out to one another and open their homes and hearts to these victims.

These diseases may be aggravated or deteriorated because of indulgence in sexual life as well. In severe cases, indulgence in sexual life even may cause vital crises such as cerebral bleeding and myocardiac infarction. Accordingly, sexual life should be moderated during the daily health care and rehabilitation. In severe cases, sexual life should be stopped for the time being (Syphilis, n.d.).

There are several tests that can be used to for Syphilis. These include: Syphilis Serum Test, the venereal diseases research laboratory test (VDL test), unheated serum reagin test (US test), rapid plasma reagin card test (P test), and cardiophospholipid is used as an antigen to examine the anti-cardiophospholipid antibody in serum. This test is used for screening examination.

Given that director John oo is often credited with being the inspiration for the fragmented, postmodern style of American filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, oo is often characterized as postmodern filmmaker himself. In other words, he is assumed to "deploy cinematic techniques with great skill, but in ways that are essentially unrelated to cinema's artistic, moral, and human ends, as established by the great cinematic works of the past" (Mulhall 99).

This article views Woo through an American cinematic lens. Specifically, Face/Off's dualism recalls a Hitchcock-like fascination with the divide between self and other, instability of identity, and 'doubles,' as in the case of movies like Vertigo and Psycho. The film uses classic themes from American literature, like the Ahab-like quest of protagonist Sean Archer to kill terrorist Casper Troy. The 'Biblical' level of justified bloodshed critiques American cultural fascination with violence yet revels in it and makes it seem attractive on screen.

He consistently uses the technique of lifting the curtain to introduce scenes and essential actions. This kept his films rooted in the early traditions of theater but in a covert manner. Many of these theatrical illusions were portrayed using modern interpretations, such as his use of the curtain effect with the image of an opening door into a new environment. These traditions were at the very root of his style, and he continued to use such dramatizations throughout his career as director.

5. Hitchcockian films represent a sharp and dynamic style which relied on suspense and anticipation. Many of Alfred Hitchcock's most infamous works never showed any real gore on screen. Instead, he placed his emphasis on the film score and visuals in order to build suspense for the act which was occurring slightly of camera.

(39) This results in the orbital socket being smaller and the eyes getting 'protoposed'. The intercranial pressure is bound to be high. The symptoms in such cases will be optic atrophy, head ache and papilledema. Or in the case of 'Crouzon's disease' where occurs a marked hooked nose and a frontal lobe which makes the disease also called the parrot head disease. Surgery in both these types of situations become mandatory as the result of the cranial pressure could result in death. (39)

Orwell & Huxley Moving Toward

Words: 1581 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96003911

" hy is this the case? hy are some concerned about privacy and others not at all? The answer lies in the fact that society is mirroring both authors' perspectives, Orwell's and Huxley's -- one fearful and the other apathetic. Society is thus a dichotomy of two anti-utopian visions.

Yet, Zittrain, like Boyd and Baym, supports the new media technology by asserting that "the Net is quite literally what we make it." So even as society moves toward a state that intertwines both Huxley's and Orwell's visions, another portion of society attempts to keep a balanced viewpoint by suggesting that such movement does not necessarily have to be as bad as it might seem.

In conclusion, although civilization is headed in a direction that looks much like that described by Orwell and Huxley -- those anti-utopian visions are not necessarily what are in store for society. Boyd and Baym do…… [Read More]

How well does Apple create value for its market segments? Explain.

The way that Apple creates value for its market segments is by finding areas that are emerging, as a new way to incorporate technology into daily life. Where, there is an emphasis on implementing the latest technology with: changes in the industry and transpiring demand (to redefine how people are entertained). A good example of this can be seen with the I Pod. What happened was the company wanted to find a way to address changes that were taking place in way people were: listening to and downloading music.

Constipation

This is the infrequent or difficult bowel evacuation (Mayo Clinic Staff, 2012). While there are no strict standard for bowel elimination, it is generally believed that fewer than thrice a week constitutes constipation. Stools are usually hard and dry. Other common symptoms associated constipation include excessive straining during bowel evacuation, a sense of rectal blockage, a sense of incomplete evacuation and the need to perform manual measures to evacuate the bowels. Constipation may be the consequence of insufficient fluid intake or dehydration, inadequate fiber in the diet, foregoing elimination, irritable bowel syndrome, lack of physical activity, illness, abuse of laxatives and certain medical conditions. Those more likely to develop constipation are older adults, those who are sedentary, confined in bed, dehydrated, on low-fiber diet, on certain medications and undergoing chemotherapy.

Hearing loss is very case specific because one person who has hearing loss or impairment may be able to hear certain sounds or be completely deaf.

Impairment entails something is not working as well as it should but there may still be some basic functioning. Hearing loss can go by many terms such as deaf, deafness, or hard of hearing. All could be one and the same situation but as pointed out, each individual is suffering from their own individual illness or situation and may or may not be comparable to any other hearing loss situation.

Although this report focuses on hearing loss as it is associated to military service, it is important to note that in the United States; approximately three of every thousand newborns are born with some type of hearing impairment thus making it one of the more common birth defects in our nation.

Formalism

The subject of films is a matter of dreams for many persons though the attraction has come down after the new medium of video has come in. Yet, for some it is still the medium to dream in.

To get into the concept of formalist film theory, one has to talk about the film in terms of the formal or technical elements within the film. These are in terms of its lighting, sound and set design, scoring, color usage, composition of shots and editing. This is the most prevalent method of studying films today. Thus when the theory is considered, it will take into account the synthesis or lack of synthesis of the different elements of film production and the total effects that are produced by the individual elements of the film. One of the common examples of this is to consider the effects of editing and when a…… [Read More]

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.

Psychology and Behavior Discuss Antipsychotic

Words: 1555 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 39699085



Therapeutic communities are important and valuable tools, but certainly not for all patients. Often, the community is made up of a certain ward or unit of the hospital, rather than the entire facility. Clearly, some patients, such as those suffering from serious debilitating diseases such as dementia or severe schizophrenia might not be physically or mentally able to exist in such a facility. However, for others, who have specific issues or health problems, and are in the facility hoping for a cure, the community concept can help them become more sure of themselves, more able to function outside the facility, and give them confidence in their decision-making abilities.

Often this term describes those in a substance abuse facility, but it can relate to other disorders and treatment facilities as well. Some of these communities are all group based, while others combine individual counseling and therapy with group activities. The main…… [Read More]

Installing Handrails at Victoria BC Ogden Point Breakwater:

Zapco elding and Fabricating, a Victoria Company, has been awarded the contract to construct an aluminum and stainless steel cable handrail at the Ogden Point breakwater.

Furthermore, one of the pillars of collaborative care that will need to be firmly established is the fostering of clear dialogue and a means for strong communication within the care management planning. For instance, there needs to be a clear decision and communication of all tests ordered and when the test results will be available. One of the most important aspects of this collaborative care will be the nursing interventions which can have significant impact on the patient's health and stabilization (Allen, 2010). In fact, strategic nursing care can even minimize readmission rates of Margaret and other patients with comparable conditions (Chen et al., 2012).

Cocaine the Long-Term and Short-Term

Words: 1193 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 64466017

The good news for those keeping an eye on the health of students in secondary school is that there has been a "…significant decline in the 30-day prevalence of powder cocaine use among 8th, 10th, and 12th graders from its peak use in the late 1990s" (nida).

Sexual Addiction

Author Paul Earley writes in the Cocaine Recovery Book that cocaine stimulates the part of the brain that stirs a sexual feeling along while decreasing a person's inhibitions. So, given the heightened sexual arousal, and a decrease in inhibition, the cocaine addict can become addicted to sexual behaviors that can be "…compulsive and bizarre… [and hence the person may] progress from compulsive and ritualistic sex to shame and remorse" (Earley, 1991). In fact Earley asserts that some male cocaine addicts try to get females addicted to the drug, engendering "…a dual addiction to sex and cocaine" (147).

Run Lola Run the German New Wave

Words: 1630 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 36586154

Run Lola Run

The German new wave of cinema was a direct commentary of the nation's post-orld ar II disharmony. Instead of the ideal Germany portrayed in Nazi era propaganda, the modern Germans films show a dirtier, grungier, and far more realistic depiction of the nation in its current sensibility. In Tom Tykwer's Run Lola Run, the present Germany is one which has prevalent violence and severe repercussions for choices that are made. The thesis of the film Run Lola Run is that any moment can change the whole outcome of our lives, as well as the people who exist on the peripherals of our lives. Through the use of plot, alteration of film and cinema convention, visual iconography, color, and tribute to past films of the action and thriller genres, director Tom Tykwer creates a completely original story that transcends film movements and genre to make a point about…… [Read More]

OTC and Prescription Drugs

Curbing the Power of Drugs

Everyone knows about the enslaving effects of substance abuse and addiction. y now, everyone knows that addiction is a compulsive physical or psychological to take in more and more of a particular substance despite knowing its harm (Alta Mira 2013). Once the use of an addicting substance is begun and continued, it only takes some time to reach a point when quitting becomes difficult. If the use manages to quit, he soon falls back to it if the conditions that precipitated the addiction or dependence are not adequately addressed. oth prescription and non-prescription drugs are at least potentially addictive (Alta Mira).

Narcotics authorities enumerate the most widely known addictive drugs as nicotine, oxycontin, crack cocaine, heroin, metamphetamine, diazepam and Schedule I and II drugs (Alta Mira 2013). Schedule I and II drugs include hallucinogens, dissociative drugs and GH, opioids, and cannabinoids.…… [Read More]

Martin Luther's Life and Legacy

Life of Martin Luther

Early Years and Education

Martin Luther (1483-1546) was a German Augustinian friar (Bainton, 2011). He had been a Catholic priest at one time, and was also a monk and a seminal figure, as well as a professor of theology. He was born in Saxony, which at that time was part of the Holy oman Empire (Bainton, 2011). Baptized Catholic the day after his birth, Luther grew up in a family where his father was determined to see him succeed (Bainton, 2011). He wanted Luther to become a lawyer, and was deeply focused on making that a reality. He had brothers and sisters, but he was the eldest child and there was more pressure on him to be successful. Luther was sent to Latin schools, where he was taught logic, grammar, and rhetoric (Bainton, 2011). Later he compared his education to both hell and purgatory.

Lyme Disease Differential Diagnosis

Mr. Robinson is a 46-year-old man presenting with a four-day history of right ear pain. He described the pain as a constant, dull, burning pain radiating to the neck and face, associated with a feeling of congestion. The patient also stated that the right side of his face had felt numb for about one day.

Three days earlier, Mr. Robinson was seen by PCP, who told him that his ear looked normal and free of infection. The day before his current presentation, however, he noticed what he described as an "acne-like" rash on his ear lobe. Shortly before coming to the ED, the patient also developed numbness over his right upper lip, which he likened to the effects of procaine during a dental visit. He reported drooling from the right side of his mouth while drinking water and difficulty blinking his right eye.

Specific Argument in Response to the Differing Perspectives on New Jersey's Budget Crisis

Words: 646 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 892728

New Jersey's Budget Crisis

Matt Bai and David Leonhardt agree that the rising cost of state government and the lack of fiscal restraint on the part of local and state government leaders has lead us to the budget crisis that many states are facing in these uncertain economic times. There are three lessons to be learned from these two articles; local and state governments need to become more efficient, contracts negotiated with public employee unions need to be reasonable, realistic, and affordable, and American's need to lower their expectations of what the government is able to do with the resources available.

Matt Bai gives three reasons for New Jersey's current financial woes, first the state sends 40% of its annual budget to municipalities and school districts in order to compensate for the shortfall in revenue from local property taxes. Second, the state doesn't have the recourses to cover its pension…… [Read More]

Nursing Assessment

Taking the history of a patient is a crucial aspect of patient assessment and treatment. A good history can mean the difference between a successful patient outcome and unsatisfactory outcomes. However, taking a complete and useful history is a skill that is developed by means of training and practice; it is not some talent that is innate (Bickley & Szilagyi, 2007; McKenna et al., 2011). According to Craig (2007) nurses are increasingly being asked to take patient histories. Given these growing responsibilities nurses need training and guidelines to taking an adequate patient history. The following is a summary and critique of Craig, L. H, (2007), A "Guide to Taking a Patient's History" in Nursing Standard, volume 22, issue 13, pages 42-48.

Parent Trap 1 And 2

Words: 4825 Length: 17 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 55523589



Family therapy believes that problems that the individuals evidence stem from the fact that problems occur within the family unit itself and that the family is divided into several component parts. To address these problems the therapist, as it were, therefore steps into the family unit, becomes "a part of it" and intervenes. His doing so not only enables him to see the family patterns from the inside; thereby understanding faults of fission but also enable him to practice therapy. Intervention in the family is called enactment.

Enactment refers to the therapist encouraging acting of dysfunctional relationship patterns within the family therapy session and him acting out some of this behavior by actually entering the family unit. The therapist thereby learns about the family's structure and interactional patterns and is able to interfere in the process by modifying some of the negative elements, pointing these out, intensifying positive elements, and…… [Read More]
