Top Hat Great Depression
Riches, Noise, and Spectacle: Top Hat as an Idealistic Reaction to The Great Depression Released in
the midst of The Great Depression in the United States, Top Hat stars Fred Astaire and Ginger
Rogers, a dynamic dancing duo who dominated the film industry. As in their other films, Top Hat
extensively features many light–hearted tunes and precise choreography. In the film, Fred Astaire
portrays Jerry Travers, a traveling performer who impresses the social elite, yet falls in love with
Dale Tremont, played by Ginger Rogers. Tremont is an unnoticeably destitute woman who models
for the luxurious clothes of a flamboyant Italian designer. After their first romantic meeting,
Tremont mistakes Travers for a married man, which ensues comical entropy. ... Show more content

Top Hat exemplifies Altman's idea because it is an idealistic musical that ignores the adversities of
the time it exists in. In addition, the film uses the spectacle to join two people from different societal
positions. SOMETHINGAltman suggests that "Genres arise in one of two fundamental ways: either
a relatively stable set of semantic givens is developed through syntactic experimentation into a
coherent and durable syntax, or an already existing syntax adopts a new set of semantic elements"
(12). He suggests that there exists a continuous relationship between history and films. Top Hat was
released in 1935–during The Great Depression. Altman's theory validates the film's SOMETHING,
and that this film can be considered a musical because it possesses the accepted attributes of the
genre. However, Top Hat reveals that entertainment exists more than a source of pleasure, as the use
of sound in the film suggests that it can also be used as a means to ridicule particular societal

Is Trust Necessary For Long Term Relationships?
Furthermore, point out Fisher and Ury, bargaining from the priority of position rather than interests
sets the table for the old adversarial (perceived) outcome of one winner and one loser. It need not be
that way. Putting interest over positions and sharing those interests and getting the other party to
share their interests is part of that 3rd concept added here; honesty and with that honesty comes
trust. Trust is necessary for long–term relationships and that trust and the honesty necessary are
cultivated by those who are wise and farsighted. Positions are sometimes stubbornly rooted in past
events and perspective to the detriment of future outcomes; using shared interests as a starting point
for new negotiations can help to put all that aside. Letting positions be the guiding force in
negotiations can produce negative outcomes much like letting personalities rule negotiations can.
Generating Workable Options Perhaps key to combating steadfast positions is generating options
that are attractive enough to make those hard–and–fast positions seem that they might somehow be
flexible. Ideally these new options will begin to evolve organically through the sharing of interests;
steering the exploration of options can be a delicate task and includes much more than
brainstorming for a quick solution. Many of the same hard tactics used in adversarial negotiations
can stifle honest exploration and examination of viable options. If options are offered up in such a

The Hero's Journey In Whirligig By Paul Fleischman
In stories, there is always a pattern that they all have in common. This certain pattern is known as
the Hero's Journey. There are varying descriptions of the Hero's Journey steps but only the steps that
are set by the teacher is used. These steps are the "The Call", "Allies", "Preparation", "The
Guardians of the Threshold", "Crossing the Threshold", "Road of Trials", "Saving Experience",
"Transformation", and "Sharing the Gift".This essay is explaining what the Hero's Journey is in the
book Whirligig by Paul Fleischman. The step that is coming up is the Call which is when the hero
starts their journey.
The Call occurs when Mrs. Zamora requests Brent to make the whirligigs in the corners of the
United States. For example, Mrs. Zamora tells ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
With this sentence, you can see that Brent only prepared materials to build the whirligig. This shows
that Brent is prepared to go on his journey because he has all of his necessaries in his luggage for the
quest. Also, this shows that Brent still is self conscious, comparing others to him. Therefore his
preparation is done, and he next needs to cross the Threshold blocking him from starting his quest.
There are no Guardians of the Threshold in this story unless Brent's parents are counted in the first
place. The book stated that "Brent's parent raised one objection after another" (Fleischman 41). The
Guardians of the Threshold usually prevents the hero from going on his quest, and this statement
shows that Brent's parents are objecting on the quest. If their objection is fulfilled, Brent wouldn't
have gone on the quest at first. This fits the standards of being the Guardians of the Threshold but
nothing is done. In conclusion, it could be called the Guardians of the Threshold by some.
A main problem in Brent's journey that is a Threshold of sorts is that he's self conscious. He doesn't
believe he has much of a future after his journey and compares to other people. In the book, it says
"He was no longer of their kind and never will be" (Fleischman 36). This sentence proves that he

The two decade period beginning in the late 1940s and concluding in the late 1960s represented the

Born with the coming of sound, the Hollywood movie musical derived from two sources: opera and
operetta, brought over by European emigres, and the American tradition of vaudeville, the

Warner Bros was seen as more economical and down to earth because they contrasted the lives of
hard working chorus girls living in cheap apartments with the lavish productions of shows
choreographed by Busby Berkeley in which they appeared. Berkeley created the musical numbers
purely in terms of the one mobile camera, forming kaleidoscopic effects with high overhead shots
from a mobile crane. What distinguished the films that burst forth from MGM in the 1940s and
1950s, mostly under the producer Arthur Freed, was the integration of musical numbers into the
film's narrative. In these features– the best being directed by Charles Walters, George Sidney,
Vincente Minnelli, Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly– song, dance, and music no longer punctuated
the plot but actually worked to advance it. In 1951, Vincente Minnelli triumphed with An American

the exploits of Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), an aspiring American painter living in Paris, who meets
a wealthy heiress named Milo (Nina Foch). Impressed with his work, she offers to help arrange an

Marquet Turn The Ship Around Summary
Introduction
In the book Turn the Ship Around, Captain L. David Marquet describes how he took the submarine,
the USS Santa Fe, from "worst to first" in the United States fleet by transforming the leadership
structure from "leader–follower" to "leader–leader."
Summary
The author divides the book into four sections. In the first section, Captain Marquet describes how
he first experienced being empowered by his commander Captain Pelaez of the USS Sunfish.
Captain Pelaez overheard the author observe that it would be helpful if they could "ping" a merchant
ship using active sonar for training. Knowing that his permission was needed to go active, Captain
Pelaez suggested that Marquet merely make his intention known to him. The result of having the
authority and ability to develop his team's training resulted in a paradigm shift about effective
leadership for the author.
Marquet was then assigned to the USS Will Rogers as the engineer officer. Eager to implement his
new ideas, Marquet executed a plan to give control to the members of his engineering department,
rather than orders. Unfortunately, his experiment was a profound failure. There were numerous
embarrassing errors that occurred as a direct result of relinquishing control to make decisions to the
men under his command. Instead of motivating the men, they complained that they missed the
former engineer who would just tell them what to do. Ultimately, Marquet took back decision–
making control from his division officers. When his time on the USS Will Rogers ended, Marquet
spent time analyzing why the situation on the USS Will Rogers ended so badly. He concluded that
an empowerment program would not work within a leader–follower organizational structure.
When Marquet was unexpectedly given command of the USS Santa Fe he chose to retain all the
crew members, even though the Santa Fe was considered the laughingstock of the Navy. He wanted
the crew to understand that they were not the problem; instead, the problem was the leadership.
Given the directive to prepare the Santa Fe for deployment, Captain Marquet saw this as an
opportunity to drastically create change by instituting a plan of leadership where the crew would

226]. After analysing the specific situation in any given organization, "the organizational
development consultant can determine that some or all elements of a traditional model may be
useful for the organization in question"[1, p. 41]. STS theory is probably the most extensive body of
conceptual and empirical work underlying employee involvement and work design applications
today Originally devel. oped at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London, this approach
to designing work has spread to most industrialized nations in a relatively short period of time. In
Europe and particularly Scandinavia, STS theory is almost synonymous with work design and
employee involvement. In Canada and the USA, STS theory has become the major underpinning of
efforts involving work design. Cincinnati Milacron, Amoco, USAA, Stanley Works, General
Electric, and Caterpillar are among many organizations using STS theory to design work[3, p. 352].
Over 30 years ago, the early contributions to socio–technical theory by Emery and Trist or by
Chern's included approaches to design of jobs and work systems. More recently, there seems to be
frequent reference to STS, given the inevitable infiltration of technology into organizations in all
industries. Often though, STS approaches appear to be fragmentary and only loosely reminiscent of

How Does Fred Astaire Move To Dance
Introduction Fred Astaire was an esteemed singer, choreographer, dancer, and actor. He starred in
many famous musical films such as Funny Face and The Band Wagon. Astaire started his career as a
child actor and was paired up with his sister Adele. They started in Vaudeville and pushed on until
reaching Broadway. Once he reached Broadway he tried for Hollywood but because of his looks, he
was not accepted for any roles. Once his sister retired, he tried out dancing and singing alone before
trying Hollywood once more and finally gaining a role. Once he entered the world of film, his whole
life shifted and he became one of the greatest musical dancers of all time. He was popular for
starring in films and his singing, but what really attracted people's attention was the way he moved

Features Of Writing A Review At A Professional Standard
Regardless of the object being reviewed, there are a number of essential features of writing a review
at a professional standard. This essay will examine each of those features with reference to two
reviews of films which explore a specific theme.
Firstly, however, the meaning of the term 'professional standard' must be established. There are
standards that all professions must follow. These are to do with ethics and values. At the very least,
standards of professionalism indicate a level of "expertise", separating those who are considered
professional from the amateur. Merely deriving an income from writing a review is not proof that a
professional standard has been met. The NSW Professional Standards Council claims that any
attempts to define standards of professionalism "typically centralise around some sort of moral or
ethical foundation within the practice of a specific and usually established expertise".
A standard attributable to being 'professional' can also indicate a level of quality or attainment. An
individual review may be at a reasonably high standard but what makes it 'professional'?
By way of analogy, there are particular essential ingredients when baking a sponge cake... a pinch of

The Role Of Diversity And Its Role For Journalism
What is the role of diversity in the newsroom?
Use of the term diversity and its role in journalism only calls attention to the lack of it in newsrooms
and magazines across the country. In their absence, I'd argue that the true value of having people of
various ethnic and racial backgrounds present in the newsroom has as much to do with improving
the process of newsgathering and reporting as it does achieving racial parity. In short, I think the
role of diversity in journalism is to make journalism better.
For example, Donald Trump's recent visit to Mexico not only highlighted the divisions within the
Republican Party but the junket also revealed the disparity as to who gets to tell the story of his bid
for the Whitehouse. Aside from Trump's well–publicized spat with the news anchor Jorge Ramos;
it's apparent the journalists assigned to covering the Trump campaign have not been representative
of the country's population at–large. While they've done a great job covering many aspects of his
campaign, it's not the full story.
Trump's visit to Mexico also illustrates the importance of bilingualism.
Unless the reporters assigned to the press junket are Mexican–American, a lot of cross–cultural
nuances and the true tenor of what is being said are likely to be missed.
In newsrooms where minorities are under represented, I'd also contend that major stories often go
unreported. Unless, events reach the level of national scrutiny– like the riots in Ferguson, or become

Gender Roles In Gold Diggers And Swing Time
From Fortunes to Pennies: The "Sexual Economics" of Ginger Rogers Both Gold Diggers of 1933
(Busby Berkeley, 1933) and Swing Time (George Stevens, 1936) feature the now–infamous Ginger
Rogers in two very different roles. In Gold Diggers, she plays a supporting role as the chorus girl
Fay Fortune, whereas in Swing Time, she is the top–billed star playing the show business hopeful
Penny Carol aside her perennial film and dance partner, Fred Astaire as show business veteran
Lucky Garnett. These two Ginger Rogers roles provide insight into the socioeconomic roles women
played in the societal landscape of the 1930s. By analyzing the same actress in two roles, one
leading and one supporting, in two film musicals produced three years apart, we can isolate exactly
what characteristics were fit for a leading lady at that point in film history. Upon close examination,
many of the changes made from the supporting role of Fay to the leading role of Penny can boil
down to two overarching themes: sexual repression and heterosexual coupling. A simple way to
begin tracking this evolution is by considering the wardrobes of the two characters. Penny's
wardrobe is very conservative. Her legs are almost always covered, even to the point of frustration
as it often obscures the view of her spectacular dancing and intricate footwork. Also, she tends to
wear very plain fabrics, and she is especially fond of white, which symbolically portrays the
virginal, pure personality we associate with Penny.

Disney Princesses : An Overt Sense Of Self Esteem
Fred Rogers and the Disney princesses have a unique similarity in that they both employ an overt
sense of self–esteem in children, which negatively impacts that child's future. Mr. Rogers, through
his television show, has made kids believe that they are special for just being who they are. A similar
idea is also true regarding Disney princesses, in that the little girls who emulate them believe that
life should be lived as a fairy tale. As children grow up, they are very easily influenced by what their
surroundings, particularly by what they see and hear. With Mr. Rogers being the main character on
an educational children's TV program and the "princess" message being promoted everywhere you
look, it is very simple for children to latch onto these people/characters. All of these individuals
seem to allow the child to believe that they are at the center of the world. This may be nothing to
yearn over if it is seen in a young child, but as the child grows up there are various factors that may
be worrisome. Self–esteem, empowerment, and entitlement are three ideals that could be influenced
negatively as the child develops into a young adult. Once again, on the surface it may seem that Mr.

Fred Astaire's Ability To Dance
Fred Astaire, a well–known stage and film dancer, is considered to be one of the best American
dancers of all time. His classiness and his ability to be light on his feet developed the musical film
industry into what it is today. Astaire's dancing style seemed effortless with exceptionally fast
footwork. However, his grace required endless hours of practice, but it wasn't all for nothing. There
wasn't a movie back in the 1920's that didn't require some form of dancing and his ability to look
classy eventually landed him a signature role. Gene Kelly, a world famous Irish dancer said, "he can
give people pleasure just by walking across the floor." In his younger years, Fred was considered to
be frail and weak in comparison to other boys of his age. His mother, Johanna Geilus, was his initial

"Funny Face" is still regarded as one of the best musical style films ever made. His final film
appearance was in John Irvin's "Ghost Story" (1981). Due to his age, this was a smaller role for a

Ironically, this is perceived through the exaggerated emotive language of having them replaced by a
"direst cruelty". Lady Macbeth pleads, "make thick my blood, stop up the passage to remorse",
conveying that if her blood was made thicker the blood flow throughout her body would slow down
and 'natural ' human functions would shut down. Metaphorically she wants the flow of remorse and
pity to be cut off, and to be unhuman. Furthermore, she pleads that her breast milk is turned to bile.
A woman 's breasts have the natural function to feed, and is a source of life for a growing baby,
while bile is a bitter, foul green coloured substance made in the liver which provides no
nourishment. Allegorically, this links back to Lady Macbeth's reversal of nature and challenge of
gender expectations. Shakespeare cleverly weaves this allegory through the play to symbolise a
warning to Lady Macbeth and or women of the 17th century, for what will happen if they rebel and

couple to achieve not only perfect harmony but a rarefied ease and elegance, something missing

therefore reassured and inspired people. His films with Ginger Rogers especially helped to provide a

I have never used it as an outlet or a means of expressing myself. I just dance. I just put my feet in
the air and move them around." Astaire never wanted to convey a dramatic emotion behind his
dance, he just wanted to move, to experience motion and this is one of the reasons that his dancing
style is so distinct and he created such a style of grace. Astaire's choreography is unique because he

How Does Fundamentalism Affect Our Modern Day Society?
Fundamentalism was first talked about during the debate by the Fundamentalist–Modernist in the
1920's. Fundamentalism is defined as a type of religion that upholds very strict beliefs from the
scripture they worship. There are several people and groups such as John Nelson Darby, William
Bell Riley, and one group that, been in the news a lot lately, Westboro Baptist Church. The members
of Westboro Baptist Church are known in modern day as a group of people known for hate speeches
against homosexual, Jews, and politicians. The definition of fundamentalism could lead one to
believe that the members of the Westboro Baptist Church are in fact fundamentalists; however, they
are just the opposite of that. When thinking about fundamentalism and ... Show more content on

Knowing how far to push fundamentalist teachings is very important for fundamentalist. Members
of Westboro Baptist have publically lacked the knowledge of when a line has been crossed and what
makes a fundamentalist differentiate from a terrorist.
For some people, categorizing Westboro Baptist Church as a fundamentalist group could be quite
the stretch. Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, is a church that was founded by Fred
Phelps in 1955. As previously mentioned, this group is known for their hate speeches and preaches
against all form of sin such as homosexuality, adultery, divorced, and remarriage.4 These sins are
listed in the bible and shouldn't be committed but there are more sins in the bible that they are also
ignoring such as: not feeding god's children that are hungry, accepting a bribe, wearing the clothing
of the opposite sex, not forgiving others, and gambling.
Most Baptist groups have the general beliefs of a typical Christian. When it comes to following
Gods words presented to us in the Bible we must know our limits of what we can say and direct on
others on what to believe. If members of Westboro Baptist Church are followers of Christianity, they
are missing the most important thing that is taught to us as Christians: not to hate. Christians are
taught that they should love everyone and treat them as they would want to be treated. As taught in
this "strictly" Christian group they are suppose to protest with signs that have

Donald Trump 's Presidential Election Essay
Donald's Trump's victory in the 2016 election is very complex. The political mishaps that have
occurred since JFK's presidency reshaped the American psyche of who the president should be. This
chain of dissatisfaction with the federal government led the American people to hope for a president
who is honest, free of corruption, and supportive of the middle class. Trump recognized the
American need for a new kind of president and took on a persona that perfectly exemplified this.
The Trump Mythology is the belief that Donald Trump is a transparent, honest politician; however,
this is only part of the equation. Belief in the Trump Mythology contributed to his victory, but it is
also important to acknowledge the respective roles of demographics, voter turnout, and Hillary
Clinton's flaws. An interesting difference between the Kennedy Mythology and the Trump
Mythology that is worth noting is the role of the media. Throughout the Kennedy Era, popular
media fed the people's fascination of Kennedy's Camelot, perpetuating the mythology. Donald
Trump, however, was largely hated by popular culture. American media ultimately discounted
Donald Trump as a viable contender for the presidency.
From the very beginning of his campaign trail, Donald Trump piqued America's interest with his
blunt and oftentimes shocking statements. With his candidacy came exclamations of making
America great, building walls, deporting illegal immigrants, and keeping jobs in the United States. A

Not all citizens of Laramie conveyed a negative view towards the LGBT community. Marge Murray,
together with some of the citizens, gave a notion of live and let live towards homosexuals. Marge
explains,
As far as the gay issue, I don't give a damn on one way or the other as long as they don't bother me.
And even if they did, I'd just say no thank you. And that's the Attitude of most of the Laramie
population. They might poke one if they were in a bar situation, you know, they had been drinking,
they might actually smack one in the mouth, but they'd just walk away. Most of 'em, they would just
say, 'I don't swing that way' and whistle on about their business. Laramie is live and let live. (17)
Marge talked about how the citizens of Laramie practice a philosophy that life goes on. There are
times that they are bothered, and they exchange words and even physically hurt one another; but
that's it, they won't hold a grudge on one another. After such argument or fight, they'll just move on
and live another day. Marge pointed out that they practice the same view toward view about

Life And Disappearance Of Amelia Earhart's Life
The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart
Amelia Earhart's career was filled with success and her life was an inspiration to many women until
it was victimized by a stroke of bad luck in which she was never found again. Although her idea of a
career started out rocky at first, she thrived when she found her passion. Amelia was the first woman

women. She unfortunately was never seen again before she turned 40. She disappeared in the

Captain Hilton Railey called Amelia and asked, "Would you fly the Atlantic?"(Sutcliffe, 17) A Tri–
motor Fokker Seaplane called Friendship, funded by Mrs. Frederick Guest, was going to be flown
across the Atlantic to symbolize the good will between the United States and Great Britain. Mrs.
Frederick Guest wanted to show that women have a place in aviation. She requested that a woman
be in the plane while it flies across the Atlantic; the woman first chosen fell ill, so Amelia was
selected instead. On June 17, 1928, the Friendship left Trepassy Bay, Newfoundland, Canada. The
20 hours and 40 minute trip touched down at Burry Port, South Wales. When she arrived, she was
nicknamed "Lady Lindy" after the famous pilot, Charles Lindbergh, who was the first person to fly
across the Atlantic. They nicknamed her after him because they thought she had a strong
resemblance to him, and she was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. Amelia wrote to a friend,
"When a great adventure's offered to you – you don't refuse it, that's all."(Boehm Jerome, 50)
Amelia was a role model to little girls and women alike, but she thought she did nothing at all. She

Actor, Will Rogers, Succeeded in Silent Films and Talkies...
The 1930s were known for many things, one of the biggest being the movement from silent films to
"talkies" which is what the first films with script and other sound effects were called. When film was
first being produced everything had to be acted out with no sound, meaning there was no music,
talking, laugh track, nothing. While there were people who excelled at acting in silent films, not
many were able to make the transition to talkies easily. However the ones who did, flourished. One

How Did The Spread Of Separationism
In the year 1517, a monk by the name of Martin Luther revolutionized the entire religious world by
starting the Reformation movement within Europe by just posting his 95 Theses to the Castle
Church doors in Wittenberg, Germany. The spread of the Reformation ideals took time until it
eventually made its way to England in the early 17th century. England, throughout the years, was
constantly changing politically and religiously, with some monarchs leaning towards Protestantism
with an iron fist and other rulers directing the country to an extremist Catholic empire. Even when
the "Elizabethan Settlement", which was treaty that ended the religious wars between the Protestants
and Catholics within England, was made there were still outcries within England for greater
reforms.
The Puritans and the Separationists were those who called for a "pure" church within England. The
Queen and even the Church of England would not put up with such communities and forced
religious conformity, thus ending a brief period of religious peace within the country. The Puritans
and Separationists had no other choice but to flee to the New World.
The Separationists called for a separation between church and state. They lived and breathed each
and every single word the Bible and believed that the bible didn't in fact teach religion as a

which we identify ourselves and others only keeps us divided and fighting each other instead of

Fred Hollows Significance in Promoting Change for...
Introduction
Good morning/ afternoon,
My name is Mary Doe and it is an honour to represent the Queensland Youth Parliament during

for Indigenous Australia. As you may well know Fred Hollows was an able advocate for Indigenous
health and focused much of his life on ending curable blindness among numerous Indigenous
communities.
Paragraph 1– Who is Fred Hollows and what were his main achievements.
Fred Hollows was born in New Zealand in 1929. He was not only a terrific ophthalmologist but also
a skilled surgeon and social justice activist, as he believed everyone was equal due to his respectful
and non– judgemental family upbringing. Initially Fred wanted to work in the church but later
changed his mind to medicine after working in a mental health hospital. At the age of 22, he started
Medical school at the University of Otago and then in 1965 to continue his ophthalmologic work.
Paragraph 2– Career beginnings
Fred started his medical career by attending the University of Otago Medical School in 1951, at the
age of 22. Fred held many different positions in his early career including being a medical intern, a
house surgeon and a clinician before specialising in Ophthalmology. After qualifying as an

In his article "What is Greatness" he states that the key factors in becoming great is by
understanding and love his fellow man. In his article, he told his readers that "a truly great person

about forgiving everyone that has wronged him, but to be able to comprehend them. He believes that
when the only thing a person knows how to do is hate, than he's truly doomed. Wisdom is the key to
greatness without out it we would just be beasts roaming in the wild. As human beings, we cannot
change and start hating on our fellow man just because they have lost themselves. We need to
preserve and maintain a clear head when it comes to any situation. You cannot live a life that
involves hating on anyone in the world. This just hurts everyone who's involved, even yourself. L.

Survival Is The Key Struggle
Survival is the key struggle in The Shawshank Redemption. This film takes place in the corrupt
Shawshank State Penitentiary where mental and physical abuses inflicted upon prisoners are the
hard realities of the system. For the prisoners of Shawshank, life is often bleak and violent.
However, the will to survive is what keeps the characters motivated to retain their humanity and
challenge the institutionalization of Shawshank. In particular, the film's main protagonists, Andy
Dufresne and Ellis "Red" Redding, exemplify the struggle for survival in the face of a corrupt,
frightening, and oppressive prison system. In order to survive the harsh realities of the world, people
adapt with personal traits like courage and resourcefulness in addition to forming community with
other people. Without a doubt, courage is a crucial element for survival in The Shawshank
Redemption because courage is the trait that the prisoners develop in order to overcome their fears
in the prison setting. Of course, fear is the natural instinct people have when they enter the
unknown. In any frightening situation, individuals, like Andy and his fellow new inmates when they
first arrive at Shawshank, must succumb to fear or find the courage to persevere. At first, it might be

Will would also get straight to the heart of the matter, letting the American people know that he

As you can see, Will understood people. In fact,he used to say, "I never met a man I didn't

is played by german director Werner Herzog (Ebert).
Even though the film ends in the common obligatory happily–ever–after fashion to which doesn't
appeal to the rest of the movie, it is nevertheless a fantastic film. It is truly a wonderful work of art
that translates the book in accurate proportions, which seems to be rare in the hollywood industry.
Like other works of Ward's the film ends with Chris and Anne seeking their destiny. The cathedral in
the ending scene, similar to the other awing images in the film, is breathtaking, however it is upside
down. The film wonderfully explores the ideas of destiny, death, human perception, man's wisdom
and nature. The digital artwork and incredibly touching performances; heighten all

The Process of Fred Meyer's Organizational Structure Selection Introduction According to Bateman
and Snell, "Two fundamental concepts around which organizations are structured are differentiation
and integration" (2011, pg. 227). Differentiation refers to the different units that work on different
kinds of tasks with the use of different skills and work methods in an organization. These
differentiated units are combinedand coordinated into an overallproduct for the purpose of achieving
the organization's mission as the result of integration. The two fundamental concepts indicate how

Through the dozens of merchandise sections within these departments, the company is able to offer
customers one–stop shopping convenience in addition to the company operating a dairy, bakery,
kitchen, and photo plan. These functional approaches incorporate the fundamental concept of
integration with combining and coordinating products and services to offer the consumers one–stop
shopping (Smith &Albaum, 2005). This type of marketing and operational strategiesprovides
the company an advantage in multiple areas of business while contributing to the organization's
direction and mission. Fred Meyer's organizational structures are effective in the company's strategy
of seeking competitiveness by enabling each department and each product division in response to
the local competition with marketing and operational strategies. The position of the company is
measuredby concepts of awareness, use, share, and competitive evaluation in determining the
appropriate organizational structure to achieve the goals of the organization. This position of the

Ginger Rogers Research Paper
The summer of 1911 Hollywood star, Ginger Rogers, was born in Independence, Missouri. Ginger, a
young and talented girl, grew up to be a famous and one of the highest paid stars in Hollywood,
America's most famous city for acting. Ginger grew up to be a very successful actress due to the
support and help of family and friends. On July sixteenth of 1911, Lela McMath gave birth to
Virginia Katherine McMath. Virginia was born in a front room in a two room house on Moore Street
in Independence, Missouri (Ginger Rogers 2010). Virginia changed her name to Ginger because of
her younger cousin, Helen, who mispronounced her name as Ginja (Bio. 2016). Shortly after
Virginia was born, Lela divorced her husband, William McMath, and left her daughter with her
parents, Walter and Saphrona Ball Owens, as she went off to Hollywood to begin writing movies
(Ginger Rogers 2010).
Those who knew Ginger as a little girl said that she could dance before she walked. Ginger Rogers
once said "My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. She could feel my toes tapping
wildly inside her for months" (Bio. 2016). Ginger grew up having a passion and love for dancing
and performing,

be given anything because then she couldn't enjoy it. Another quote she said was "When two people
are in love, they don't look at each other: they look in the same direction" (Bio. 2016). This
represents how she didn't take all the credit for all the success she had with her career. How her and
her mother looked in the same direction, went after it, and succeeded. It is said that Ginger credited
most of her success to her mom (Ginger Rogers 2016). That Ginger would have never been able to

Top Hat Great Depression

  • 1. Top Hat Great Depression Riches, Noise, and Spectacle: Top Hat as an Idealistic Reaction to The Great Depression Released in the midst of The Great Depression in the United States, Top Hat stars Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, a dynamic dancing duo who dominated the film industry. As in their other films, Top Hat extensively features many light–hearted tunes and precise choreography. In the film, Fred Astaire portrays Jerry Travers, a traveling performer who impresses the social elite, yet falls in love with Dale Tremont, played by Ginger Rogers. Tremont is an unnoticeably destitute woman who models for the luxurious clothes of a flamboyant Italian designer. After their first romantic meeting, Tremont mistakes Travers for a married man, which ensues comical entropy. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Top Hat exemplifies Altman's idea because it is an idealistic musical that ignores the adversities of the time it exists in. In addition, the film uses the spectacle to join two people from different societal positions. SOMETHINGAltman suggests that "Genres arise in one of two fundamental ways: either a relatively stable set of semantic givens is developed through syntactic experimentation into a coherent and durable syntax, or an already existing syntax adopts a new set of semantic elements" (12). He suggests that there exists a continuous relationship between history and films. Top Hat was released in 1935–during The Great Depression. Altman's theory validates the film's SOMETHING, and that this film can be considered a musical because it possesses the accepted attributes of the genre. However, Top Hat reveals that entertainment exists more than a source of pleasure, as the use of sound in the film suggests that it can also be used as a means to ridicule particular societal ...

  • 5. Is Trust Necessary For Long Term Relationships? Furthermore, point out Fisher and Ury, bargaining from the priority of position rather than interests sets the table for the old adversarial (perceived) outcome of one winner and one loser. It need not be that way. Putting interest over positions and sharing those interests and getting the other party to share their interests is part of that 3rd concept added here; honesty and with that honesty comes trust. Trust is necessary for long–term relationships and that trust and the honesty necessary are cultivated by those who are wise and farsighted. Positions are sometimes stubbornly rooted in past events and perspective to the detriment of future outcomes; using shared interests as a starting point for new negotiations can help to put all that aside. Letting positions be the guiding force in negotiations can produce negative outcomes much like letting personalities rule negotiations can. Generating Workable Options Perhaps key to combating steadfast positions is generating options that are attractive enough to make those hard–and–fast positions seem that they might somehow be flexible. Ideally these new options will begin to evolve organically through the sharing of interests; steering the exploration of options can be a delicate task and includes much more than brainstorming for a quick solution. Many of the same hard tactics used in adversarial negotiations can stifle honest exploration and examination of viable options. If options are offered up in such a way that ...

  • 13. The Hero's Journey In Whirligig By Paul Fleischman In stories, there is always a pattern that they all have in common. This certain pattern is known as the Hero's Journey. There are varying descriptions of the Hero's Journey steps but only the steps that are set by the teacher is used. These steps are the "The Call", "Allies", "Preparation", "The Guardians of the Threshold", "Crossing the Threshold", "Road of Trials", "Saving Experience", "Transformation", and "Sharing the Gift".This essay is explaining what the Hero's Journey is in the book Whirligig by Paul Fleischman. The step that is coming up is the Call which is when the hero starts their journey. The Call occurs when Mrs. Zamora requests Brent to make the whirligigs in the corners of the United States. For example, Mrs. Zamora tells ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... With this sentence, you can see that Brent only prepared materials to build the whirligig. This shows that Brent is prepared to go on his journey because he has all of his necessaries in his luggage for the quest. Also, this shows that Brent still is self conscious, comparing others to him. Therefore his preparation is done, and he next needs to cross the Threshold blocking him from starting his quest. There are no Guardians of the Threshold in this story unless Brent's parents are counted in the first place. The book stated that "Brent's parent raised one objection after another" (Fleischman 41). The Guardians of the Threshold usually prevents the hero from going on his quest, and this statement shows that Brent's parents are objecting on the quest. If their objection is fulfilled, Brent wouldn't have gone on the quest at first. This fits the standards of being the Guardians of the Threshold but nothing is done. In conclusion, it could be called the Guardians of the Threshold by some. A main problem in Brent's journey that is a Threshold of sorts is that he's self conscious. He doesn't believe he has much of a future after his journey and compares to other people. In the book, it says "He was no longer of their kind and never will be" (Fleischman 36).

The two decade period beginning in the late 1940s and concluding in the late 1960s represented the height in popularity for the Hollywood musical. With every major production proving to be box office gold, the level of critical approval was high establishing the Hollywood musical as a genre. Born with the coming of sound, the Hollywood movie musical derived from two sources: opera and operetta, brought over by European emigres, and the American tradition of vaudeville, the inspiration behind so many "backstage" musicals, the plots of which revolved around putting on a show. The interesting alliance between dream and reality in the musical gave directors, designers, and cinematographers the most creative scope within the commercial of ...

Warner Bros was seen as more economical and down to earth because they contrasted the lives of hard working chorus girls living in cheap apartments with the lavish productions of shows choreographed by Busby Berkeley in which they appeared. Berkeley created the musical numbers purely in terms of the one mobile camera, forming kaleidoscopic effects with high overhead shots from a mobile crane. What distinguished the films that burst forth from MGM in the 1940s and 1950s, mostly under the producer Arthur Freed, was the integration of musical numbers into the film's narrative. In these features– the best being directed by Charles Walters, George Sidney, Vincente Minnelli, Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly– song, dance, and music no longer punctuated the plot but actually worked to advance it. In 1951, Vincente Minnelli triumphed with An American in Paris, and it became emblematic of the golden era of MGM musicals. An American in Paris traces the exploits of Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), an aspiring American painter living in Paris, who meets a wealthy heiress named Milo (Nina Foch). Impressed with his work, she offers to help arrange an exhibition for him.

David Marquet describes how he took the submarine, the USS Santa Fe, from "worst to first" in the United States fleet by transforming the leadership structure from "leader–follower" to "leader–leader." Summary The author divides the book into four sections. In the first section, Captain Marquet describes how he first experienced being empowered by his commander Captain Pelaez of the USS Sunfish. Captain Pelaez overheard the author observe that it would be helpful if they could "ping" a merchant ship using active sonar for training. Knowing that his permission was needed to go active, Captain Pelaez suggested that Marquet merely make his intention known to him. The result of having the authority and ability to develop his team's training resulted in a paradigm shift about effective leadership for the author. Marquet was then assigned to the USS Will Rogers as the engineer officer. Eager to implement his new ideas, Marquet executed a plan to give control to the members of his engineering department, rather than orders. Unfortunately, his experiment was a profound failure. There were numerous embarrassing errors that occurred as a direct result of relinquishing control to make decisions to the men under his command. Instead of motivating the men, they complained that they missed the former engineer who would just tell them what to do. Ultimately, Marquet took back decision– making control from his division officers. When his time on the USS Will Rogers ended, Marquet spent time analyzing why the situation on the USS Will Rogers ended so badly. He concluded that an empowerment program would not work within a leader–follower organizational structure. When Marquet was unexpectedly given command of the USS Santa Fe he chose to retain all the crew members, even though the Santa Fe was considered the laughingstock of the Navy. He wanted the crew to understand that they were not the problem; instead, the problem was the leadership. Given the directive to prepare the Santa Fe for deployment, Captain Marquet saw this as an opportunity to drastically create change by instituting a plan of leadership where the crew would have more opportunities for ...

After analysing the specific situation in any given organization, "the organizational development consultant can determine that some or all elements of a traditional model may be useful for the organization in question"[1, p. 41]. STS theory is probably the most extensive body of conceptual and empirical work underlying employee involvement and work design applications today Originally devel. oped at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London, this approach to designing work has spread to most industrialized nations in a relatively short period of time. In Europe and particularly Scandinavia, STS theory is almost synonymous with work design and employee involvement. In Canada and the USA, STS theory has become the major underpinning of efforts involving work design. Cincinnati Milacron, Amoco, USAA, Stanley Works, General Electric, and Caterpillar are among many organizations using STS theory to design work[3, p. 352]. Over 30 years ago, the early contributions to socio–technical theory by Emery and Trist or by Chern's included approaches to design of jobs and work systems. More recently, there seems to be frequent reference to STS, given the inevitable infiltration of technology into organizations in all industries.

They started in Vaudeville and pushed on until reaching Broadway. Once he reached Broadway he tried for Hollywood but because of his looks, he was not accepted for any roles.

They constantly switched from walking to dance movements where they would go from simple movements to Astaire going at it with his tap dancing. They would walk a few steps with their arms locked and then immediately they would pull apart. Ginger would lift up her dress a bit and would do a quick tap from left to right to left again in sync with Astaire who did the same step. They end the left and right step with a small kick of the right foot (1:02–1:10). This piece is a perfect example of the mix of ballroom dance and tap dancing that Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were so well known for. These dances popularized the use of tap dancing during that time and changed the way dancing was used in films.

This essay will examine each of those features with reference to two reviews of films which explore a specific theme. Firstly, however, the meaning of the term 'professional standard' must be established. There are standards that all professions must follow. These are to do with ethics and values. At the very least, standards of professionalism indicate a level of "expertise", separating those who are considered professional from the amateur. Merely deriving an income from writing a review is not proof that a professional standard has been met. The NSW Professional Standards Council claims that any attempts to define standards of professionalism "typically centralise around some sort of moral or ethical foundation within the practice of a specific and usually established expertise". A standard attributable to being 'professional' can also indicate a level of quality or attainment. An individual review may be at a reasonably high standard but what makes it 'professional'? By way of analogy, there are particular essential ingredients when baking a sponge cake... a pinch of this and teaspoon of that. We all know, however, that, even though the same recipe has been followed, there are sponge cakes and there are sponge cakes.

  • 45. The Role Of Diversity And Its Role For Journalism What is the role of diversity in the newsroom? Use of the term diversity and its role in journalism only calls attention to the lack of it in newsrooms and magazines across the country. In their absence, I'd argue that the true value of having people of various ethnic and racial backgrounds present in the newsroom has as much to do with improving the process of newsgathering and reporting as it does achieving racial parity. In short, I think the role of diversity in journalism is to make journalism better. For example, Donald Trump's recent visit to Mexico not only highlighted the divisions within the Republican Party but the junket also revealed the disparity as to who gets to tell the story of his bid for the Whitehouse. Aside from Trump's well–publicized spat with the news anchor Jorge Ramos; it's apparent the journalists assigned to covering the Trump campaign have not been representative of the country's population at–large. While they've done a great job covering many aspects of his campaign, it's not the full story. Trump's visit to Mexico also illustrates the importance of bilingualism. Unless the reporters assigned to the press junket are Mexican–American, a lot of cross–cultural nuances and the true tenor of what is being said are likely to be missed. In newsrooms where minorities are under represented, I'd also contend that major stories often go unreported. Unless, events reach the level of national scrutiny– like the riots in Ferguson, or become a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Gender Roles In Gold Diggers And Swing Time From Fortunes to Pennies: The "Sexual Economics" of Ginger Rogers Both Gold Diggers of 1933 (Busby Berkeley, 1933) and Swing Time (George Stevens, 1936) feature the now–infamous Ginger Rogers in two very different roles. In Gold Diggers, she plays a supporting role as the chorus girl Fay Fortune, whereas in Swing Time, she is the top–billed star playing the show business hopeful Penny Carol aside her perennial film and dance partner, Fred Astaire as show business veteran Lucky Garnett. These two Ginger Rogers roles provide insight into the socioeconomic roles women played in the societal landscape of the 1930s. By analyzing the same actress in two roles, one leading and one supporting, in two film musicals produced three years apart, we can isolate exactly what characteristics were fit for a leading lady at that point in film history. Upon close examination, many of the changes made from the supporting role of Fay to the leading role of Penny can boil down to two overarching themes: sexual repression and heterosexual coupling. A simple way to begin tracking this evolution is by considering the wardrobes of the two characters. Penny's wardrobe is very conservative. Her legs are almost always covered, even to the point of frustration as it often obscures the view of her spectacular dancing and intricate footwork. Also, she tends to wear very plain fabrics, and she is especially fond of white, which symbolically portrays the virginal, pure personality we associate with Penny. ...

Disney Princesses : An Overt Sense Of Self Esteem Fred Rogers and the Disney princesses have a unique similarity in that they both employ an overt sense of self–esteem in children, which negatively impacts that child's future. Mr. Rogers, through his television show, has made kids believe that they are special for just being who they are. A similar idea is also true regarding Disney princesses, in that the little girls who emulate them believe that life should be lived as a fairy tale. As children grow up, they are very easily influenced by what their surroundings, particularly by what they see and hear. With Mr. Rogers being the main character on an educational children's TV program and the "princess" message being promoted everywhere you look, it is very simple for children to latch onto these people/characters. All of these individuals seem to allow the child to believe that they are at the center of the world. This may be nothing to yearn over if it is seen in a young child, but as the child grows up there are various factors that may be worrisome. Self–esteem, empowerment, and entitlement are three ideals that could be influenced negatively as the child develops into a young adult. Once again, on the surface it may seem that Mr. Rogers and the Disney princesses are very positive role models for the youth of our country, but it is evident that there are aspects of their teaching/culture that are not all that good for an easily influenced, developing child.

His classiness and his ability to be light on his feet developed the musical film industry into what it is today. Astaire's dancing style seemed effortless with exceptionally fast footwork. However, his grace required endless hours of practice, but it wasn't all for nothing. There wasn't a movie back in the 1920's that didn't require some form of dancing and his ability to look classy eventually landed him a signature role. Gene Kelly, a world famous Irish dancer said, "he can give people pleasure just by walking across the floor." In his younger years, Fred was considered to be frail and weak in comparison to other boys of his age. His mother, Johanna Geilus, was his initial push into dancing hoping he would develop a greater athletic figure. Over time, his ability to dance began to come naturally and complimented that of his sister's style. Fred was considered to be more of an innovator ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

To this day, "Funny Face" is still regarded as one of the best musical style films ever made. His final film appearance was in John Irvin's "Ghost Story" (1981). Due to his age, this was a smaller role for a horror novel adaptation. Astaire contributed his wonderful dancing to dozens of films.

Over and over again these representations are revisited, seeing just how many degrading representations the modern–day woman can overcome before finally adopting these stereotypes as the norm in her everyday life. It is almost like a game to see how many obstacles women can overcome; each obstacle yet another generalised representation of women in literature and film.

Ironically, this is perceived through the exaggerated emotive language of having them replaced by a "direst cruelty". Lady Macbeth pleads, "make thick my blood, stop up the passage to remorse", conveying that if her blood was made thicker the blood flow throughout her body would slow down and 'natural ' human functions would shut down. Metaphorically she wants the flow of remorse and pity to be cut off, and to be unhuman. Furthermore, she pleads that her breast milk is turned to bile. A woman 's breasts have the natural function to feed, and is a source of life for a growing baby, while bile is a bitter, foul green coloured substance made in the liver which provides no nourishment. Allegorically, this links back to Lady Macbeth's reversal of nature and challenge of gender expectations. Shakespeare cleverly weaves this allegory through the play to symbolise a warning to Lady Macbeth and or women of the 17th century, for what will happen if they rebel and challenge societal expectations. Consequently, Macbeth gains in murderous masculinity, ordering killing after killing, while Lady Macbeth lapses back into the feminine helplessness she had earlier rejected.

When people danced or even just watched dance it provided them with a physical and psychological energy that impassioned people and gave them optimism. Fred Astaire conveyed this inspiration and hope during the Great Depression through his film and his dancing. Morris Dickstein, in his article Facing the Music, states, "they gradually promoted dance into a plot device, enabling a bickering couple to achieve not only perfect harmony but a rarefied ease and elegance, something missing from the audience's encumbered lives". Astaire had a style that displayed elegance and class and therefore reassured and inspired people. His films with Ginger Rogers especially helped to provide a distinctly up–lifting spirit and harmony that was hard to convey during a time of great struggle. Fred Astaire had a distinct dancing style– one of lightness and grace. Astaire himself describes his own way of dancing in his autobiography Steps in Time; "I have no desire to prove anything by dancing. I have never used it as an outlet or a means of expressing myself. I just dance. I just put my feet in the air and move them around." Astaire never wanted to convey a dramatic emotion behind his dance, he just wanted to move, to experience motion and this is one of the reasons that his dancing style is so distinct and he created such a style of grace.

Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, is a church that was founded by Fred Phelps in 1955. As previously mentioned, this group is known for their hate speeches and preaches against all form of sin such as homosexuality, adultery, divorced, and remarriage.4 These sins are listed in the bible and shouldn't be committed but there are more sins in the bible that they are also ignoring such as: not feeding god's children that are hungry, accepting a bribe, wearing the clothing of the opposite sex, not forgiving others, and gambling. Most Baptist groups have the general beliefs of a typical Christian. When it comes to following Gods words presented to us in the Bible we must know our limits of what we can say and direct on others on what to believe. If members of Westboro Baptist Church are followers of Christianity, they are missing the most important thing that is taught to us as Christians: not to hate.

The political mishaps that have occurred since JFK's presidency reshaped the American psyche of who the president should be. This chain of dissatisfaction with the federal government led the American people to hope for a president who is honest, free of corruption, and supportive of the middle class. Trump recognized the American need for a new kind of president and took on a persona that perfectly exemplified this. The Trump Mythology is the belief that Donald Trump is a transparent, honest politician; however, this is only part of the equation. Belief in the Trump Mythology contributed to his victory, but it is also important to acknowledge the respective roles of demographics, voter turnout, and Hillary Clinton's flaws. An interesting difference between the Kennedy Mythology and the Trump Mythology that is worth noting is the role of the media. Throughout the Kennedy Era, popular media fed the people's fascination of Kennedy's Camelot, perpetuating the mythology. Donald Trump, however, was largely hated by popular culture. American media ultimately discounted Donald Trump as a viable contender for the presidency. From the very beginning of his campaign trail, Donald Trump piqued America's interest with his blunt and oftentimes shocking statements.

Of the eight teams in the last four Super Bowls, six of them had a black head coach or general manager. The Panthers, Jets, and Steelers are the only teams with coaching staffs composed of at least 50 percent minorities. Two– third of NFL team members are majority black, with only one– third minority coaches who can relate to these players. One prominent minority coach stated that he had been called every day to implement a better college program at another school because the head coach needed minority representation on staff to help with recruiting. The Rooney Rule is still evolving and growing to become better. NFL officials still are experiencing token interviews to full the mandate, when teams know all along they plan to hire someone else. The league can ensure that the teams follow the Rooney Rule by requiring teams to provide transcripts of interviews with minority candidates. That way, the NFL commissioner's office could judge for themselves whether teams adhered to the rule. Among NFL decision–makers, should work on interview feedback, candidate feedback on what worked and what didn't work, and what can even be better the next time, will help candidates as they continue their quests to become a head coach or manager.

How Did The Spread Of Separationism In the year 1517, a monk by the name of Martin Luther revolutionized the entire religious world by starting the Reformation movement within Europe by just posting his 95 Theses to the Castle Church doors in Wittenberg, Germany. The spread of the Reformation ideals took time until it eventually made its way to England in the early 17th century. England, throughout the years, was constantly changing politically and religiously, with some monarchs leaning towards Protestantism with an iron fist and other rulers directing the country to an extremist Catholic empire. Even when the "Elizabethan Settlement", which was treaty that ended the religious wars between the Protestants and Catholics within England, was made there were still outcries within England for greater reforms. The Puritans and the Separationists were those who called for a "pure" church within England. The Queen and even the Church of England would not put up with such communities and forced religious conformity, thus ending a brief period of religious peace within the country. The Puritans and Separationists had no other choice but to flee to the New World. The Separationists called for a separation between church and state. They lived and breathed each and every single word the Bible and believed that the bible didn't in fact teach religion as a hierarchy.

We label humans, animal, our groceries, plants, etc. Many of us think are because it helps us organize the life we live but that hasn't worked everyone. The labels we use have a negative impact to those who are one being labeled. Many of them try to live up to the labels or some labels degrade them. The labels with which we identify ourselves and others only keeps us divided and fighting each other instead of having us being unified. In our society today we discuss the immigration status. A candidate for the presidential seat Donald J. Trump has discussed his stance on Immigration. Mr. Trump during one of his campaign states, "When Mexico send its people, they're not sending their best. They are sending people who have a lot of problems, they are bringing that problem to us, they are bringing drugs, crime and they are rapists." This prescription adds on to immigrants are lazy, they are here to take jobs, etc. Also, everyone thinks all the immigrant are Mexicans. This has impacted for everyone to see an immigrant as the person who stops this country to reach its potential. The characterizes of immigration discuss by Donald Trump are not true.

Introduction Good morning/ afternoon, My name is Mary Doe and it is an honour to represent the Queensland Youth Parliament during reconciliation week. This presentation will focus on Fred Hollows significance in promoting change for Indigenous Australia. As you may well know Fred Hollows was an able advocate for Indigenous health and focused much of his life on ending curable blindness among numerous Indigenous communities. Paragraph 1– Who is Fred Hollows and what were his main achievements. Fred Hollows was born in New Zealand in 1929.

Says the billionaire, greatness, is determined by the amount of wealth you acquire in your life. No! Says the priest, it's defined by how much you commit your life to god. No! Says your country, greatness is how much you give to your country. Becoming great is a thing that most desire, yet most don't know what being great really means. We are born in the mentality that some people are great such as the president or comic book heroes such as Batman, but for what reason?

In his article, he told his readers that "a truly great person loves his fellows because he understands them" (Hubbard 1). When he says this, he's not talking about forgiving everyone that has wronged him, but to be able to comprehend them. He believes that when the only thing a person knows how to do is hate, than he's truly doomed. Wisdom is the key to greatness without out it we would just be beasts roaming in the wild. As human beings, we cannot change and start hating on our fellow man just because they have lost themselves. We need to preserve and maintain a clear head when it comes to any situation. You cannot live a life that involves hating on anyone in the world. This just hurts everyone who's involved, even yourself. L. Ron. Hubbard believes that the only true way to become great, is to learn how to love. Donald Trump is a remarkable man that controversy always seems to follow him around no matter what he does. If anyone else did or said anything the things he has done, their political career would have ended, yet Donald Trump is still going strong. The reason why his political career is so strong is because he says what he wants to say. He doesn't care what anyone else thinks which causes him to get the support of the American people.

This film takes place in the corrupt Shawshank State Penitentiary where mental and physical abuses inflicted upon prisoners are the hard realities of the system. For the prisoners of Shawshank, life is often bleak and violent. However, the will to survive is what keeps the characters motivated to retain their humanity and challenge the institutionalization of Shawshank. In particular, the film's main protagonists, Andy Dufresne and Ellis "Red" Redding, exemplify the struggle for survival in the face of a corrupt, frightening, and oppressive prison system. In order to survive the harsh realities of the world, people adapt with personal traits like courage and resourcefulness in addition to forming community with other people. Without a doubt, courage is a crucial element for survival in The Shawshank Redemption because courage is the trait that the prisoners develop in order to overcome their fears in the prison setting. Of course, fear is the natural instinct people have when they enter the unknown. In any frightening situation, individuals, like Andy and his fellow new inmates when they first arrive at Shawshank, must succumb to fear or find the courage to persevere. At first, it might be difficult for people to find courage in frightening times, but many individuals still manage to find courage from sources like religious faith and hope.

The school board gathered us here today to explain the cause of this boycott; likewise, we would like to voice out our fellow students' concerns during this conversation. Mr. Rogers treated us unfairly and showed a clear dislike towards females. "C? This is the lowest grade I've ever got! How is this possible?"

Of Mr. Rogers's current and former students, 600 are selected at random to participate in a survey. Results showed that 94% wanted Mr. Rogers to change, 1% liked the way he is, and 5% remained neutral. Upon seeing such a case, we decided to interview a different group of students to see their perspective on this issue. A senior male student said, "I've never had Mr. Rogers before, but my younger sister has him this year... a week ago, she came home with her report card and looked close to tears. We asked her why she was upset, and my sister replied, 'It's Mr. Rogers; he gave me a D!' My sister is a studious student, so I can't imagine that she did anything bad. I could, however, think of one other possibility: Mr. Rogers holds sexism. If this is true, I would definitely do something to overthrow him, and I am sure many others would agree." A female sophomore student describes her own experience. "I go to school happy as a bird and ace all my classes until I hit Mr. Rogers's 9th period. I try not to judge him or pollute his reputation, yet the thought is all but impossible to hold in. He obviously dislikes girls, and one could easily distinguish the piercing glares he gave the girls and the warm gazes that he held when he looked at the boys.

He was a simple cowpoke who entertained people with his rope tricks and sly political observations. He also wrote a widely–read newspaper column and appeared on the raido every week. I supose he is alot like Bill Cosby is today: beloved for his down–to–earth style of humor. But that "aww, shucks" attitude hid a brilliant mind. Furthermore, Will Rogers was more than just a comedian; he was a man of character.

When Will pointed out some politican who said one thing and did another, or criticized some program in Washington he didn't approve of, he'd disquise his criticism behind a joke so as not to offend. But Will would also get straight to the heart of the matter, letting the American people know that he thought just as they did. As you can see, Will understood people. In fact,he used to say, "I never met a man I didn't like." How many of us can say that? He'd go on to explain the Indian belief that "you have to go around and stand behind someone to get a look at what he's lookin' at." Only then do you see things from his perspective. This fairness is remarkable, especially at a time in America when racism was everywhere. Will's Indian heritage helped him to look at people as people, to see beyond color or status in the world. He treated the political elite and the unemployed with the same respect and good humor. In fact, he often made fun of himself, which allowed everyone to relax and see the good sense behind much of what he said about the rest of society. This generous attitude translated into many other areas of his life. During the Depression, Will was very sympathetic to those who had lost everything–their savings, their jobs, and their sense of security. He himself had lost his entire fortune when ...

This is a quote by one of our past presidents, Ronald Reagan. As the United States' 2016 election year shortly approaches candidates everywhere are trying to be seen as great leaders to the people.

Analysis Of What Dreams May Come What Dreams May Come Vincent Ward's "What Dreams May Come" breathed brilliant life into the tragic story of a family pulled apart by death and the journey one man makes through heaven and even hell to save his soul mate, based from the book, What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson. This movie is boldly beautiful and a rollercoaster of feelings that brings you to the emotional edge but sadly doesn't quite get us all the way over. In the beginning of the movies, events occur rather quickly. Chris and Annie, unbelievably effective and heartbreakingly performed by Robin Williams and Annabella Sciorra, meet as there boats collide into each other on a lake; from there the two fall in love, become married and have two children. The children ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... His idea in this particular story is that heaven is built in a state of uncertainty. Those who are there see and experience that things and people that they wish to see or do. The meaning behind thus, is that Heaven is becoming who you want to be (Ebert). As Albert says in the film "Hell is a place for those who don't know they are dead." Souls who do not accept death or unable to comprehend it are those who end up in hell. In the movie, as Chris travels the road to hell, he sees that the road is paved with faces who are bitter and damned. Along the way he also hears the voice of his father who is played by german director Werner Herzog (Ebert). Even though the film ends in the common obligatory happily–ever–after fashion to which doesn't appeal to the rest of the movie, it is nevertheless a fantastic film. It is truly a wonderful work of art that translates the book in accurate proportions, which seems to be rare in the hollywood industry. Like other works of Ward's the film ends with Chris and Anne seeking their destiny. The cathedral in the ending scene, similar to the other awing images in the film, is breathtaking, however it is upside down. The film wonderfully explores the ideas of destiny, death, human perception, man's wisdom and nature. The digital artwork and incredibly touching performances; heighten all ...

Ginger, a young and talented girl, grew up to be a famous and one of the highest paid stars in Hollywood, America's most famous city for acting. Ginger grew up to be a very successful actress due to the support and help of family and friends. On July sixteenth of 1911, Lela McMath gave birth to Virginia Katherine McMath. Virginia was born in a front room in a two room house on Moore Street in Independence, Missouri (Ginger Rogers 2010). Virginia changed her name to Ginger because of her younger cousin, Helen, who mispronounced her name as Ginja (Bio. 2016). Shortly after Virginia was born, Lela divorced her husband, William McMath, and left her daughter with her parents, Walter and Saphrona Ball Owens, as she went off to Hollywood to begin writing movies (Ginger Rogers 2010). Those who knew Ginger as a little girl said that she could dance before she walked. Ginger Rogers once said "My mother told me I was dancing before I was born.
