On Valentine's Day in the year 2005, a group of already wealthy young computer geniuses began their brainstorming and introductory work on a videography platform for the Internet . Similarly to the origination point of the massively successful firm Facebook, the ideation for Youtube began as a system for rating and classifying video material, as opposed to a forum for video sharing. Not long after Youtube.com's registration on February 15th, the group of young men began posting homemade videos of all sorts. The first video posted on the website depicted one of the founding members (Jawed Karim) at the San Diego Zoo with the elephants . Shortly after Youtube's official launch in December 2005, the company and its previously successful group of young leaders (the founders of Youtube were also responsible for the creation of PayPal, which was extraordinarily successful and subsequently sold to Ebay) began attracting some serious…

In addition to the implications earlier described, YouTube clips have succeeded in coining certain expressions, characters, behaviors that were copied by the audience. For example, the Hong Kong us uncle case in which a middle-aged man - Chan Yuet Tung reacted furiously to a young passenger's request to lower his voice while traveling by bus, had a tremendous effect. Hong Kong teenagers borrowed Chan's expressions, radio programs and commercials drew analogies between their content and his behavior, video games were purchased because of the similarities existing between their characters and the protagonists of the bus quarrel (http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/YouTube).
To conclude with, one could say that YouTube has both negative and positive effects. On one hand, it reveals undiscovered talents of ordinary people, offers freedom of speech and, implicitly, an alternative to unidirectional messages, and, on the other hand, it breeds violence because of the numerous users who are inclined to stand…

This paper examines how YouTube is able to provide a strong lifeline for marginalized people. YouTube is the fundamental public forum and is one which is able to offer individuals a means of showcasing their story for the world. YouTube offers people who are minorities, repressed or otherwise pushed to the fringes of society a means of sharing their story and of showcasing their unique experience. For some, YouTube allows them to show the violations of government and civil rights -- this creates a level of accountability along the world stage. For others, YouTube helps them foster an online community of marginalized individuals otherwise sharing their story. This paper will look at two specific groups of marginalized people: transgendered teen and ordinary civilians in Venezuela and discuss how YouTube is able to offer them a means of sharing their…

Copyright Laws, Should the Government Search for Copyright Violators?
YouTube and other websites like Facebook, allow users to post videos of things that interest them. While this promotes creativity and sharing among people, it also proliferates copyright infringement and copyright violation. Although YouTube has cracked down on such violations, by taking down even videos that simply use copyrighted music and nothing more, it still does not stop people from posting copyrighted material. This is because it is such a prevalent problem that little can be done to completely manage it. Therefore, it is a waste of resources to try to search for copyright violators, especially when it applies to the government.
YouTube is a private company. If it decides to remove copyright violators to improve business and traffic, that is their decision. However, when the government tries to do this, it relies on taxpayer money. Streaming sites like Spotify allow…

Google acquisition of YouTube in 2006 for $1.65 billion. The deal will be analyzed in both the financial and strategic contexts. ith respect to the former, the net present value of YouTube's future cash flows will form the basis of the evaluation. ith the latter, there are a number of considerations including the market position of each of the companies at the time of the merger and during the post-merger period. The analysis leads to the conclusion that YouTube was a money-losing entity in 2006 and remains so today, giving it a negative intrinsic value. The company does have significant strategic value for Google however. hile this strategic value may be difficult to quantify, it should be taken into consideration, especially since Google could easily afford the deal.

While society experienced notable progress in the field of discrimination during the recent decades, matters were very different at the beginning of the twentieth century, considering that race was an influential factor at the time. Philip Noyce's 2002 motion picture Rabbit-Proof Fence puts across an account regarding individuals of mixed descent in Australia as they struggle to avoid falling victim to the persecutions inflicted by the Half-Caste Act. The government's attitude regarding half-castes was especially discriminatory and addressed an absurd matter, considering that it wanted to make it impossible for people of mixed descent to continue to exist in a presumably perfect Australian environment.

YouTube has agreed with CBS, Universal Music, Lionsgate, Electronic Arts and other media businesses to have copyrights to their videos and be able to claim them and show ads alongside them. The goal is to be able to share the revenue. The movie industry needs to pursue the lead of the music industry by embracing the technological progress that has allowed millions of people worldwide to benefit from the electronically provided content (IAA, n.d.). By developing new ways to deliver things technologically the more revenue that can be obtained instead of lost.

Social Networking and Kids http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-80RTGqTgQ
We live in a world that is immersed in technology. In this context, the rise of social networks and their increased popularity among children, teens and adults is a hot topic today. I have chosen to review a video that describes in detail a social network called Everloop, designed especially for children under 13. The video is an interview with this network's Chief Strategy Officer, who presents the advantages of Everloop, its main features, why it is suitable and attractive for children and how it allows for parental control and supervision.
Children should not be banned from having access to networking utilities. These have almost become indispensable, people of all ages somehow relate to them and therefore being excluded from such environments also excludes them from normal social interaction with their peers. However, one thing is essential: parents need to make sure their…
actor James Garner's accomplishments and his "greater importance" to the history of television as a whole. Actor James Garner became a legend in Hollywood because of his "manly man" portrayals of characters like Bret Maverick and Jim ockford. He has been honored for his work, and his portrayals helped make television a more popular medium in its early years.
When Garner was still in his teens, he came to Hollywood, but did not want to become an actor; he became a model and attended school, then went home to Oklahoma. His aunt wanted him to be an actor, but he was not interested. In fact, it took several visits to California and some coincidences for him to sign with an agent and become an actor, even though he had been approached. Finally, he signed with an agent in the mid-1950s and began learning how to act. He worked on the…

Rosewood massacre and anti-black sentiments in the early twentieth century
Although African-Americans experienced liberation consequent to the Civil ar, conditions did not change significantly for several decades. Black people continued to be discriminated by whites through laws that were implemented as a means to control and limit the emancipation of African-Americans. John Singleton's motion picture Rosewood relates to the 1923 historical event in Rosewood, Florida. Official numbers show the death of six African-Americans and two white individuals along with the persecution of practically black people in Rosewood. The film reflects events in the 1920s through relating to feelings expressed by the Second Ku Klux Klan and one can actually find a great deal of similarities between anti-black thinking present in the nineteenth century and anti-black sentiments…

art 2- Assess…
Part 2- Assess YouTube's growth through alliances and partnerships. -- YouTube is very effective in using alliances and partnerships to grow. The company was founded in 2005 then acquired by Google in 2006 for almost $2billion in Google Stock. So, with just an initial venture capital influx and within 18 months, YouTube was able to expand to the predominant video file sharing site and move globally into over 20 countries.
Part 3 -- Assess the company's localizing strategy. Do you recommend that YouTube 'localize' when entering other countries? When YouTube enters a new country, it focuses on local features like promoted videos, homepage promotions, localized user interfaces and help centers, user support and community features. As well, YouTube allows for content to be further localized to expand to some of the local languages. YouTube uses its basic interface to globalize, and then it localizes by tweaking the interface and focused content upon that particular locality. It appears that this strategy largely works, and gives the local area a feel of ownership and reason to assess YouTube.
Part 4 -- What are the problems YouTube is experiencing in India? The youth of many developing countries are quite hungry for Western media, advertising, movies, television, etc. This trend blossomed in India during the early 21st century. However, as many multinational corporation find, morality and interpretation vary around the world, as does the way companies can address their concerns legally. In India, for instance, YouTube was sued by a local music label for allowing its music to be used and displayed without adequate permission. In addition, some conservative and religious groups in India believe the content is too secular, too Western, and contains elements of decadence (re: pornography). Still, the general direction of global culture seems to exemplify the sort of file sharing and egalitarianism the describes YouTube's mission.

David Rock first states that he is no expert on the topic but that he will help coach the executive by helping her think through the problem.
Rock continues to ask a number of probing questions about the top. One question he asks is about the priority of the issue. The executive states that the problem is not on the top of her list, but the issue is probably in the "top 5." It is incredibly interesting how he is able to frame his…

The author of this report has been asked to offer an opinion on what should be done in terms of marijuana and the laws that surround it. The four general options are keeping the status quo, decriminalizing its possession or legalizing possession and controlled distribution (e.g. Colorado, Washington, etc.). The author of this report has been asked to define what "decriminalizing" marijuana would mean. Basically, it means that people that possess marijuana would not be arrested although fines might still apply. An exception to this would be if someone is possessing enough marijuana that they are ostensibly into trafficking or dealing without a license or in a state where it's not legal to sell weed as a business. Of the three options, the status quo is certainly not a way to go. Indeed, the federal and state/local laws relating to marijuana completely conflict in many instances. This…

An entire industry has emerged for companies that produce content for YouTube channels.
YouTube's partnership program is popular, but it is not without its criticism. While the program does allow people to earn money from the ads, there are many who feel that they do not earn enough, and YouTube has been accused of lacking transparency with respect to how it pays out on its Partnership Program, according to Lazarus (2012). This presents a challenge to the reputation of the program, which needs to be profitable for the partner companies as well as for YouTube in order to fend off competition from other video-hosting sites.

The role of sex in advertising is even more blatant in a food advertisement of an ejaculating Tabsco sauce bottle over a split bake potato -- hot and spice as a metaphor for intercourse.
Sex sells: a woman wants to be desired by a man which requires the perfect figure, in the perfect low-cut dress with the perfectly matching nail polish, and a man can only be desired by a woman if he drives a BMW, wears a olex watch and has on a alph Lauren suit (which is not a Polo suit but the higher end and much more expensive Purple Label suit).

As a first step in creating this online community, Fearless needs to sponsor more contests for customers, where the winner gets a free year's supply of all the Fearless Chocolate they want (limit of 250 lbs.) and a free trip to Berkeley, California to see the manufacturing of chocolate. Berkeley is just across from San Francisco, so giving a free week in that city would be a very big motivator for people to produce entries. This contest would be entirely hosted on YouTube with links to the Fearless site, showing every uploaded video entry. Having a contest like this brings the voice of the Fearless customer into the very center of their social media strategy and also sets the foundation of a highly effective virtual community. User-generated content is especially powerful in getting potential customers to see how they are part of the broader customer base, seeing how others like them are using the products shown (Andrew, Fischer, Yongjian, 2012).

The essence of any effective branding strategy is the embedding of messaging in social networks that support and strengthen the overall customer experiences a given product or service is attempting to convey (Zaglia, 2013). The YouTube Video Contest, with the grand prize being a trip to San Francisco and Berkeley, in addition to a year's supply of chocolate, will generate tens of thousands of entries, create a very strong dialogue between the company and its customers.
Pinterest is one of the most rapidly-growing social networking sites for sharing images, and is being used widely by consumer brands to further engage with prospects and customers. Fearless is a natural fit for Pinterest, and needs to also sponsor a recipe contest on this site, where customers are asked to provide pictures and recipe instructions of what they make from the company's chocolates. The first prize could also be a trip to an Francisco and tour of the factory, in addition to attendance at a local cooing school in the city, which is known for its excellence in culinary arts. This would again bring the voice of the customer directly into the social media efforts, initiate and sustain very strong level of communication with them and best of all, bring visual imagery showing customers' commitment to the brand. What Fearless needs to do is create a very strong connection with customers where their stories come out in social media, and the majority of traffic on social media is about them. Fearless will succeed by making customers the rock stars of their social media efforts.
In terms of Facebook, the company continues to rely on this social network for promoting advertising and engaging in limited conversations with customers. What' needed on Facebook is a much more interactive approach to communicating with and connecting with customers. The company recently hosted a

Over time, this solution became less and less effective as the sheer volume of YouTube uploads increased and the studios and companies were unable to keep up with the inflow of illegally posted material. Currently, many studios and companies have entered into a revenue sharing agreement with sites like YouTube to help make up for the potential in lost revenue that the illegally posted content presents. In this structure, studios present advertisements before the posted video content where ad revenues are split between both YouTube and the studios themselves. This has become a common way of trying to recoup some of the lost revenues due to video sharing sites while also opening up new avenues for companies to promote their products online on these sites. The movie industry can learn much from the music industry because they are experiencing what the music industry experienced only a decade or so ago.…
Parenting styles vary, and include authoritarian, authoritative, permissive, and harmonious styles. All of these styles are relatively common, varying depending on culture and individual differences. Television shows reveal different parenting styles. For example, on the sitcom Modern Family, different parenting styles are evident. Gloria is occasionally authoritarian in her approach, but otherwise the parenting style evident in all the three different family units is harmonious. Harmonious parenting styles are superior to authoritarian, authoritative, permissive styles in that they prepare the child for healthy social relationships with others.
Moreover, harmonious parenting styles help achieve a harmonious household. Harmonious parenting styles create win-win scenarios as shown in the video explaining the different styles of parenting. When the child wants something, and the parents also want to enforce some rules of conduct, a conflict may ensue. An authoritarian parent will lay down the law, refusing to give into any of the child's requests.…

However, most people who are looking for verifiable information are not going to sift through the detritus of YouTube, but will instead go to reliable sources: books, journals, studies, and reports that present verifiable facts and information.

Also, the authors note that online courses can be boring and even tedious when existing eb-based technologies are not put to use (Revere, 117).

The governments of China clearly believe that if they do not ban shows where the premise is based on the voting then it could lead their citizens to want the right to vote in the government on their own opinions. The influence that television has, in this case by indirectly helping Chinese citizens move in the direction of being slightly more "democratic," is seen as a threat- it is hard to believe that television could threaten the national security of a world super power.
The current influence that television has on individual's lives is only growing stronger as technology continues to develop. Recent developments have shown that television will now be in "three-dimensions," so that individuals who view TV can be full immersed in the movie or show they are watching ("ho Needs It"). But is that even necessary when nine out of ten homes have televisions in their homes…

Rick Santorum's official campaign put out the next ad, entitled Obama Ville. It was released on March 23, 2012. It creates the image of empty American towns in 2 years, and uses very dark imagery and almost horror-genre like angst. The images of the residents of these towns are cast in dark shadows, and with depressing old infrastructure. This advertisement is painting the picture that in the next 2 years President Obama will destroy the American way of life. The second half of the ad shows the face of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, as that country defies America and seeks Nuclear Power. The end of the advertisement has the image of "Obama Ville, coming to a town near you," in a pseudo 1950s Hitchcock style, and plugs the official website of Rick Santorum.com for more content on this subject (Santorum, Obama Ville, 2012).

Human slavery/sex trafficking
The menace of slavery and trafficking for purpose of sexual exploitation is a menace that greatly neglected or not talked about by the high and mighty yet it is a problem that ravages families on a daily basis. Across the globe, there are people who benefit from the modern day slavery and there are countries that act as source, most of them being the underdeveloped nations where poverty is high and unemployment is also significantly high. These two factors when combined, often push affected families to willingly or otherwise let go of their daughters into the forced labor or sex slavery in more developed nations. The women and children are the most affected groups in the slavery business since they are the most vulnerable in the society. Against the common belief that slavery is obsolete, the opening up of more borders and easy…

As such, Yunus' business model for Grameen Bank directly contradicts Social Darwinism, since the former is giving collateral free loans to individuals who are not fiscally fit -- and who are oftentimes exceedingly destitute -- and enabling them to get the financial means to survive.
Additionally, it is critical to examine the role that women play in both Social Darwinism and in Yunus' enterprise with Grameeen. Women are the bearers of children, and regardless of what Social Darwin advances about the fittest of a species, no species can survive without the means of replicating itself. For humans, of course, such a conception prioritizes women over men. Therefore, it is highly significant that the bulk of the individuals receiving loans form Grameen are women. From a Social Darwinism perspective this fact is extremely noteworthy, since women can produce a more direct effect on the livelihoods of their children.

How Does a Person Live a Meaningful Life?
One of the questions which have perplexed humankind is how to live a meaningful life. This is because there have been a number of theorists and philosophers, who provided insights about the best ways to achieve these objectives. Over the centuries, these views are constantly shifting. This is because experiences and social attitudes will shape a person's insights.
To fully understand the meaning of life requires focusing on key ideas from the different philosophers. This will be accomplished by discussing central figures from each module in terms of their contribution, the pros / cons of their ideas and how this relates to their understanding of life. Together, these different elements will illustrate how each one of these theories is influencing the way someone can live a fulfilling life.

social psychology: Stanley Milgram's shock experiments and Philip Zimbardo's Stanford Prison Experiment. Both experiments were conducted, at least partially, to help explain why seemingly normal people became Nazi collaborators in the World War II era. The experiments help demonstrate how individual authority over another allows individuals to exercise their own proclivities for cruelty and how being under the direction of authority figures causes people to engage in behavior that they find distasteful or cruel. The paper also examines Jane Elliot's Brown Eye / Blue Eye experiment and what it says about the establishment of hierarchies.

Asia and Africa in estern European Art
Globalization is generally associated as a modern phenomenon, however, it is a global movement that began with the Greeks and did not accelerate until the renaissance era. The est, going back to Alexander the Great, has a long history of interactions with Asia and Africa. Ideas and goods were consistently traded. This trend of globalization accelerated with the age of exploration in the 16th century when Europeans came into further contact with Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Driven by the quest for gold and natural resources estern European traders navigated the world. This had a profound effect back home, as Europeans developed an interest in the exotic. The interest blossomed during the 18th and 19th century, during the height of estern power and colonialism. Curiosity into the foreign permeated all levels of society.

The Four Phases of Political Advertising
The four phases of political advertising as described by Edwin Diamond and Stephen Bates can be described thus: first) the candidate introduces himself; second) the candidate's ads state an argument; third) the candidate attacks and belittles his opponent; fourth) the candidate promotes himself as a "visionary…a leader…one who has a vision of moving the country forward" (Module 7). The purposes of the four phase system of political advertising is to 1) showcase the candidate's abilities, 2) question the opponent's, and 3) respond to the opponent's questioning of him. This paper will look at four political ads and show how each represents a phase political advertising and fulfills at least one of the three purposes of a campaign ad.

Facebook is operating on the communication and social segment of the it industry. In this sense, it is offering a multitude of services to its clients, which include, besides the actual chat or forum-like services, photo and video sharing and, increasingly, the capacity to generate an entirely customized and personalized page for the user. From this point-of-view, we can identify primary competitors, competing in the social segment of the industry, but also secondary competitors, who focus on partial components, such as photo or video sharing.
In terms of the primary segment, the most important competitor that Facebook has is Myspace. Myspace has successfully benefited from being launched earlier so as to attract an additional 30 million users, ranking at 100 million users before Facebook's 70 million.

treating autism. ABA, TEACCH, Floortime, and service dog intervention are the methodologies reviewed.
Applied Behavioral Analysis, TEACCH, and Floortime are the three teaching strategies discussed in the assigned videos. Though the methods vary, each one is designed to help children with autism learn. According to AutismSpeaksVid, Applied Behavioral Analysis is a process which entails prompting a desired response, getting a correct response, and providing a positive reinforcement once the desired response has been completed (2008). TEACCH is a systematic approach to providing visual structure in the learning environment to facilitate ease of learning for the autistic pupil, also according to AutismSpeaksVid (2008). Floortime is yet another method used in the education process for the autistic which entails interacting with the child at his or her level, doing what he or she does naturally and incorporating that into a learning opportunity, according to Dr. Greenspan (2008).

Utilitarianism is one of the most useful ethical theories. It can frame decisions made in almost every aspect of daily life, and also large-scale decisions made by organizations, enterprises, and governments. The basic principles of utilitarianism, as they were developed first by Jeremy Bentham and later by John Stuart Mill, are all based in the essential notion of utility. Utility means usefulness, but it is also related to net benefit.
Utility is defined in terms of the question, "Is this action beneficial? If so, who is it beneficial for, and how beneficial is it?" Utilitarian theory suggests that an ethical decision should weigh the greatest good for the greatest number of people. If an action is beneficial, it should be beneficial to the greatest number of stakeholders. It should be the decision that most maximizes the target population's happiness, or however success is being measured. This end result can…

Henry Purcell - Abdelazer Suite: II. Rondeau
This is piece from the late 1600's. It is the second part of a larger set of music. As indicated in the title, the wider set of pieces is called Abdelazer. The piece is entirely French by nature. The Rondeau in particular, including this one, has two "halves" where there is a refrain that is prominently featured. The work was written by Henry Purcell. He lived in the latter half of the 1600's. Given his French roots, it's obvious where that part of his music came from. As for the piece itself, the video shows smooth yet crisp notes that start off the piece. The entire orchestra is involved. Only strings are in play...violins, violas and cellos.

There is no denying the fact that one of the hallmarks of embrandt's works of art is his copious usage of elements of light, dark and shadow to great effect. This sort of tenebrism is deployed by the artist initially to give a sense of contrast to his works. Light and dark are antipodes of one another, and by involving both of these elements the painter was able to create striking counterpoints within his works of art. This fact is seen quite prominently in his self-portrait circa 1629. Not only does the artist use both light and dark elements to illustrate his face and the brimming future which he saw in front of himself as an artist, but this portrait is also characterized by loose brushwork which is distinct from the crisp strokes of the…

Is this a "Police-Public Relations" or "Police-Community Relations" program? Explain why.

Is this the answer in these tough fiscal times?
It can be given that having more and more police on hand costs money and this is not the easiest thing to do when budgets are stretched thin due to recession, over-use of resources and so forth.

But the web's real dangers lurk elsewhere" (1).

The shift from Byzantine or Medieval art to the early Renaissance is perfectly demonstrated by examining the change in depictions of the Virgin Mary and the baby Jesus, or Madonna and Child, over time. hat we see is a gradual tendency toward realistic depictions of human form, as a way of making religious art less remote and decorative, and more immediately related to actual human experience.
e can begin with the thirteenth-century Byzantine icon of the Madonna and Child on a Curved Throne. The painting is, in some sense, a highly stylized representation of a familiar image. The figures of mother and child do not really seem to exist in real space: for example, the gold leaf that is used for the flat backdrop behind the Madonna and Child is also used (in a decorative but not particularly realistic fashion) to highlight the folds of the Madonna's garments. here…

Although not a huge market segment perhaps, horse lovers (most of whom are women) might even be offended by the unflattering depiction of the tiny horses. The idea that a young woman would prefer a cute cell phone rather than a pet as a present also seems to portray young women as shallow. Although it is not a scientific sampling, the notes on the comments page of YouTube for the advertisement included many notes by users (presumably young women, the targets of the advertisement) that they would trade their phone for a pony any day! (an equally unscientific poll of young women by the author of this paper yielded the same results).
The message of an advertisement for a cell phone should convey either the phone's added social value aesthetically or the phone's added financial or service value. This advertisement does neither.

The film version of the 'GodFather' became famous. The reason is that it was essentially a portrayal more on the family and emotional side rather than the gun toting violence. Thus the viewer shows the discernment between a good and bad movie by analyzing the depth of the portrayal rather than stunts. The argument that violence in cinema begets violence in real life falls flat. The viewers are not imbeciles, although many film producers take that for granted. Scarface 1932 version was all about the real gang rule of America. However the film not only depicted the violent lives of these people but also examined the psychology of the gangster and challenged the administration and there was depth in the portrayal. The viewer was absorbed in the passions of Tony to which they could relate, if not with the violence. Could that film have goaded viewers to become criminals? It…

The nineteenth century German philosopher Immanuel Kant presented an ethical code that assigned a strict "right" or "wrong" to every action. Called the categorical imperative, Kant believed that it does not matter what the consequences or outcome of actions are; there are certain things that are right and certain things that are wrong. These ethical categories of right and wrong are not negotiable. It can never be "sometimes" ok to tell a white lie, or to steal. Instead, Kant created easy to understand categories that apply theoretically to all cultures and all people at all times. Human beings are always morally obliged to do the right thing in any given situation, even if doing so leads to suffering. Therefore, it would be considered right to tell the truth to a murderer and subsequently die rather than to lie to the murderer and survive. Davis (n.d.). uses the example of…

video, three different forms of bad statistics were mentioned. The first was bad sampling, the second was bad use of measures of central tendency and the third was leading questions. Leading questions are a form of sampling error, in which survey respondents are led to specific conclusions. Their responses are calculated in the results, the context in which those responses arose was not noted. The context, however, played a significant role in framing the responses. There are many ways to lead people with questions. I think a lot of times the leading questions are emotional in nature, to put somebody in a specific emotional state that frames their response. The question about Santa Claus in the video was a good example of this -- "Do you really still believe in Santa Claus?" But this happens with all types of surveys.

GoPro Social Media
The Gopro camera is an action-oriented personal camera that can be mounted virtually anywhere and record spectacular action sequences with stillness and clarity never before possible through the use of handheld equipment. Gopro's use of social media -- particularly Youtube, where user videos are uploaded and shared with millions of viewers -- is a great way for the company to market itself to consumers, who are a given numerous examples of just what they could do and capture with their own Gopro mounted camera.
GoPro has branded itself as the camera for all things extreme: its tag at the end of its online videos is "Be a Hero" -- and is displayed at the end of videos such as that of the man training a pelican to hunt fish and to fly. The camera company is appealing to individualistic people looking to do something different, something exciting,…

Video one: Bill of Rights Overview
Which amendment do YOU value most?
I consider Amendment I the most crucial aspect of the Constitution's Bill of Rights.
Amendment I safeguards the five most fundamental freedoms: speech, religion, assembly, press and the right of petitioning governmental bodies for righting any wrongs. The above safeguards were missed most by Antifederalists within the novel Constitution (Feinberg, 1987).
Is our justice system better or worse than other systems around the world today?
Accessible reports and scholarly works reveal that the American justice system is neither the most effective nor the most unsuccessful justice system of all. Some nations (e.g., Scandinavian nations) enjoy a more superior system while others (e.g., Middle Eastern…
Serena illiams, one of the most strong and prominent young female role models for athletic women today is shown as using her tennis prowess to 'slam' nature in the face in one recent advertisement. illiams' femininity and her athleticism are clearly interconnected: illiams wears eye-catching outfits and is one of the most accomplished tennis stars of her generation. But according to Kotex, this female athlete cannot work worth 'with' Mother Nature and still be successful.
Sanitary napkin advertisements are very public, and often embarrassing to watch (even for male and female friends watching television together, eyes often head to the floor when they come on). Although it is painfully obvious what the ads are about, and what products they are promoting, the advertisements stress the secrecy and discretion of the product, especially their odor-reducing potential and the smallness of the packaging. In one ad, showing a girl on a skateboard:…

This may be true to a certain extent. An identity crisis could be seen behind the entire movement, but this becomes less relevant under these circumstances in which so many terrorist acts are taking place in the name of Allah. The numerous attacks that have been occurring from the infamous September 11, 2001, spread throughout Europe in the name of divine justice are acts of unjustified crime and the only reaction they can trigger is the desire to punish them.
It can be stated that the situation in Turkey differs from the situation abroad. It may appear strange, but things are less tense in the Turkish society. One controversial issue is represented by the veil that women wear in order to hide their faces. In Turkey this led to a number of debates when students began wearing the veil in universities.

America has been blamed for its implementation of imperialistic strategies, which made it the major decider in the global economy and the primary generator of the changes in the work characteristics. The activists and other protestors argued that the American model of forced democracy, which extended beyond the boundaries of the state, hurt the freedom of the countries with which the U.S. was interacting, but also that of the American workers, who were often prevented from forming unions that would protect their rights (Friedberg and owley, 2000).
Democracy allowed the U.S. employers to take the actions they considered suitable for the achievement of their profitability goals; this often activated in the detriment of the employees' interest. But despite this however, democracy also allowed the dissatisfied workers to voice their concerns and, through freedom of speech, they were able to join forces and demand the resolution of their stringent issues.

For example, the scene in which Andrea stands before the statue of Marat and sings "Credi al destino" fails to evoke for me any real sensation. Perhaps it is because, as Grout suggests, the opera is "laden with harmonies that are heavy and oldfashioned [and] has little of special interest" (p. 495). Such could explain why the scenes feel at time clunky and abysmally lacking in flair. Still, at other times, they are vibrant and alive with life -- and those times are when the drama calls for gaity (not for fatalism or idealism).
The opera may, therefore, be interpreted as a political piece -- but I do not wish to convey that interpretation, for I think there is already too much omanticism in contemporary politics today. I think Andrea fits better as a period piece that should be left in the period for which it was written: one that…

The two speeches being compared and contrasted in this paper are by actors. Viola Davis gave a commencement address in 2012 at Providence College. Tom Hanks gave his commencement speech in 2005 at Vassar College. hile they are both actors, and both chose to speak to college graduates, their remarks were vastly different in style and substance.
Tom Hanks started his speech (after a joke relating to the length of the introduction) by saying he had recently read an article about gridlock on the Southern California freeways. He reported that "Some smart folks" did a computer simulation to see how many cars would need to be removed from the gridlock to get the traffic flowing again. He reported that if four cars out of every hundred were removed from the traffic snarl, or forty cars for every thousand cars in the gridlock were removed, things would flow…
