Personal Review Of The Movie ’13th Documentary’

Ava DuVernay’s 13th film was a very compelling documentary, but it was also hard to watch. The feeling was odd because I knew it wasn’t sympathy, since I hadn’t experienced even a fraction the amount of discrimination that some of those interviewed had endured, but I still felt incredibly sad. The full story spans years of research and legal proceedings, but the film is focused on explaining the 13th Amendment. This amendment states that slavery and involuntary labor are prohibited within the United States and any country under their jurisdiction.

DuVernay began by shocking me. She stated that 1 in 4 African American men would serve time in prison at some point. It was shocking to me because I watched it before learning the statistics. I was shocked to learn that these rates are so high. The extreme racial differences in the criminal justice system became more apparent to me after reading this. This was so unbelievable. After this I immediately started “googling”, which led me to learn that African American people are 5x as likely to be incarerated than whites. I believe that the only difference between white and black people is their bias. After this, President Obama gives another shocking statistic. While the United States is only 5% the world population, it cares for 25% of all prisoners. The US justice system is clearly flawed. As a country of high development, I believe that we cannot, should not, or could not house 25% of the prisoners around the globe within our borders.

The documentary consists of a series DuVernay’s interviews. Each interview provides different information regarding the 13th Amendment, and the problems surrounding it. Most of the people interviewed were former inmates. All the interviews took place in an industrial setting. They were never conducted outside or in a public space. DuVernay uses all the interviews to support her belief that slavery in the United States has never been abolished, despite the 13th Amendment’s “abolition” of it. She believes that those who are in power have acted in a biased manner and have unfairly punished people, which has perpetuated slavery even in modern America. The wording in the amendment was so strategic that I did a double-take just by reading it. It is still possible to have slavery if the white man who has power decides that a man must serve. I find this inherently wrong. We should abolish slavery completely if we have abolished it.

DuVernay used simple word images to create a film that really “popped” for me. The stats at the beginning were displayed by themselves, without any pictures, audio or video. Just the “1 out of 4” statistic. The film repeatedly cuts to black backgrounds with the word “CRIMINAL” on them. This was probably meant to illustrate how people of color can be easily defined without even looking at their individuality. She seems often to refer to the “scary Black criminal”. This is a similar topic to what I discussed when studying about the rise in hip-hop culture in America. White Americans are predisposed to fear African Americans. We’ve taken several true stories of crime and exaggerated or skewed the facts to make them seem like all African Americans are criminals. It was very effective to display these words in a harsh manner on screen.

In summary, I think the information and film that it contains follows a certain path. The timeline starts at the end with slavery, then segregation. I also studied this in hip hop class. She discusses the drug war and how it has led to a rise in incarceration rates.

Ludwig Van Beethoven Compositions

Ludwig van Beethoven (Germany) was a composer of music who dominated the period in between the Classical Era and the Romantic Era. He died at age 56 on March 26, 1827. He was an innovative composer who combined vocals with musical instruments. He expanded the scopes of sonatas. In his personal life, he struggled with deafness. Some of his greatest works were written during his last ten years, when he could not hear.

Western Classical Music includes extended compositions, such as a symphony. They are usually composed by a composer for an orchestra. Beethoven’s first symphony was two works that directly imitated Mozart and Haydn. For string instruments like violin, cello, viola and double basses, as well as brass, woodwinds and percussion instruments, symphonies can be scored. Piano and celesta can sometimes be found in a 5th keyboard section. They may also stand alone. Full-size orchestras are sometimes referred to as a philharmonic or symphony.

The number of musicians in a performance can vary between 70 and over 100, depending on what is being performed and the size of a venue. In recent years, some orchestras have reverted to the seating arrangement of the Baroque and Classical eras. The second violins sit to the left, the cellos in the middle, and the violas on the right. This gives the music an stereophonic feel.

What is the orchestra? There is no standard orchestra form. Its size and composition will vary depending on the music. Depending on the type of repertoire and its period, the composer can specify the requirements. Seating arrangement or placement can also have a significant impact on the sound of an orchestra. Again, this element has no universal standard. In many books about orchestration and conducting, the seating of an orchestra is given little or no attention. The way an orchestra’s seating is set up has a profound impact on the sound and functionality of the ensemble. Despite its impact on musical outcomes, including the practicalities involved in music-making by players and conductors, as well the sound that music makes to an auditorium, seating is not flexible enough to be considered.

The four-note motif, which we have discussed above, is used to open the first movement. This is one of western music’s most famous opening themes. It is a matter of considerable controversy among conductors about the way to play the opening four bars. Others play it at a slower, more stately pace, while others prefer to give the motif an edgier treatment. It is essential to convey both the written and-twoandone as well as the intended spirit.

The first section is in Beethoven’s traditional sonata, which he inherited from Haydn, Mozart and other classical composers. In this movement, the themes that Beethoven introduces in the very first page are elaborately developed across many keys. A dramatic return to the beginning section occurs at approximately three-quarters. The first two phrases are dramatic and fortissimo, the famous theme, which grabs the attention of the listener.

Beethoven extends the theme by using imitations. The jumbled imitations tumble on top of each other in such a rhythmic pattern that it appears to be a single, flowing melodic line. The horns play a short fortissimo before the second theme is introduced. The second theme, in E-flat major relative to the first, is more lyrical and written on piano. It features the four note motif in the strings accompaniment. This four-note motif is used again in the codetta. The next section uses modulation, imitation and sequences, as well as the bridge. The recapitulation includes a solo passage for the oboe, in a quasi-improvisatory manner.

Review Of The Movie, Coach Carter

Coach Carter is the true story of Ken Carter. Ken Carter was a star basketball player who played at Richmond High School. Carter is seen teaching his players discipline, respect and the importance education throughout the film.

Carter is shocked to learn that players are disrespectful and rude towards him. Carter teaches respect to his players by calling them “sir”. Respect is something that I believe coaches must teach their athletes because it’s not just a trait for sports, but applies everywhere. Everybody should learn how to respect other people and become a better human being.

Carter teaches the team discipline. He gives each player their contract at the beginning of practice. The contract binds the players to the rules and regulations he’s set for them, including being on-time and maintaining at minimum a GPA 2.3. In the event that players do not meet this requirement, they will face punishments and consequences as a whole. This includes being required to do too many push-ups. Carter doesn’t treat his son any differently than the other players if he wants him to join Richmond and transfer schools. Carter expects that his son maintain a GPA higher than the other players because he believes he can do it. Carter treated his son the same as any other player, even though it was his child. Favoritism is a bad thing for your team. Your players will turn against your and think you are treating them unfairly.

Carter becomes angry when he reads that his players are getting incompletes or failing classes due to their inability to attend class. He reminds them that academics are the priority and that they signed contracts as student athletes. Carter sends his players to the library for homework and to do their studies to improve grades. He cancels games and locks down the gym. Parents are outraged when Carter cancels the most important game of the year and they complain to the board. The schoolboard votes to end it. Carter walks into the gym and discovers that his players are studying in their desks rather than playing. Eventually, the players get better grades and can play again. Despite losing the championship by just two points, both athletes and academics feel they have accomplished a lot. Academics should always come first when coaches are coaching school sport. Many coaches don’t really care about their athletes’ grades, but only if they have a good athletic ability. I would stress the importance of education if I was ever to coach sports at a school.

A recent article, “Richmond Rebound/High-school Basketball Players Hit the Books, Coach Lifts Lockout,” discusses Carter’s reasoning for the lockout. Also included are the opinions and thoughts of others who agreed and disagreed with Carter. Carter was interviewed in an article entitled “Just Call Him “Sir”. He talked about his opinion of the movie and his thoughts on self-talk. Carter explained that he would often ask his players “What do you fear?” to encourage them to have a more positive self-talk. Self-talk helps boost confidence and is something that coaches need to pay attention to. Coach Carter shares his coaching strategies and philosophy in a question-and-answer session. He stressed the importance of education and why his players were so hard-pressed.

The articles and movie I watched taught me how to be an effective coach if I decide to return to coaching. Just like Carter, I’d focus on respect, education, and discipline. To be a great coach you have to do a lot. Sometimes it’s helpful to study other coaches and their philosophies.

How Filmmakers Michael Moore And Louie Psihoyos Use Persuasive Devices In Their Documentaries To Convince The Viewer To Agree With Their Arguments

Documentaries are films that include factual material. These films are made to achieve a number of goals, including recording events and ideas, educating and persuading viewers, expressing opinions and creating public interest. Documentaries are able to accomplish these aims by using a variety persuasive techniques. Music and foley are examples, as is irony and repetition. Live and archived footage can also be used. The Cove is one of the documentaries we will discuss in this paper. The other documentary that we will cover is Bowling for Columbine. The Cove, by Louie Psihoyos is a documentaire that examines dolphin enslavement, slaughter, and abuse in Taiji Japan. Bowling for Columbine explores gun-violence in the US as well as the circumstances leading up to the Columbine High School murder. The Cove & Bowling for Columbine both use persuasive techniques such as emotional appeals, archival and live footage, irony, etc. Michael Moore’s and Louie Psihoyos’ documentaries use these persuasive techniques to communicate their message.

Both The Cove & Bowling for Columbine employ emotional appeals to persuade their audiences. Emotional persuasion is a way to influence an audience by inducing emotion. This technique manipulates feelings by focusing on emotional factors rather than logical and practical ones. As an example, in Bowling for Columbine the victims from the Columbine high school massacre were shown to be in tears and distress shortly after their shooting. In tears, the students explained that they were forced into begging for their life while being shot at by other students. This scene makes the audience feel the same distress and emotions as the victims. It also makes them want to do something for the victims. Ric o’Barry’s story about Flipper and her inability to cope with life is an example of how this device works. This story makes you feel for Flipper and all dolphins in similar situations. You also realize how intelligent she was to have done such a thing. Both documentaries use emotional scenes to convince viewers of Michael Moore and Louie Psihoyos. This is because the viewer’s intelligence is low, and they can’t understand why the situation has occurred. They are then quick to react with anger. The Cove or Bowling for Columbine are both successful in using emotion to get their audience to agree.

Both The Cove as well as Bowling for Columbine use live and archived footage to convince the audience. Live and archival clips are audio or film footage such as a newsreel or CCTV that is taken during the event. CCTV footage of the shooting that took place in the lunch room of the school is an example. It shows Columbine’s students hiding underneath the tables of the school lunch hall, while the two antagonists walked around casually with guns. We can also hear 911 call recordings from students and teachers at the school from that fateful morning. The Cove shows hidden camera footage of fishermen killing dolphins. Here we can see the brutality of the dolphin slaughter and treatment. We see water turning red as dolphins struggle above the surface before becoming motionless. This technique allows the audience to gain a better understanding of the subject. These scenes, as well as evoking emotion, have an impact on the viewers’ mental state and general thought about the topic. The Cove as well as Bowling for Columbine use archival and live footage to convince the viewers to agree with their argument.

Irony is employed to convince audiences in The Cove as well as Bowling for Columbine. Irony occurs when one expresses their meaning using a language that usually means the opposite. As an example, in Bowling for Columbine a selection of clips is shown expressing conflict and violence while Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World’ is played. The words “what’s a wonderful word” are not correlated with the images of suffering or death. Bowling for Columbine shows us the sign for Columbine High School that says “Home of the Rebels”, and has a picture of the soldier holding a weapon. In The Cove, the Taiji dolphin enslavement is described as a Japanese tradition. However, most Japanese people are unaware of it. The Cove also shows the many models of dolphins or whales that are displayed in Taiji. There is even a sign that says “We Love Dolphins”. Irony makes the audience uncomfortable. This means they will be more sensitive to the situation. Irony can be used to get the audience to agree to the argument. This technique works in The Cove as well as Bowling for Columbine.

Documentaries use persuasive techniques to influence an audience. The Cove uses techniques that are both successful and impactful on the audience. These techniques include emotional appeals and live or archived footage. Documentary filmmakers Louie Psihoyos and Michael Moore use persuasive techniques to persuade the audience to accept their arguments.

The Great Gatsby: Comparison Of The Movie And The Book

The Great Gatsby portrays the struggle in society for freedom and a sense of identity. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the novel in 1925. The story revolves around a number of characters that live in the fictional town of West Egg or East Egg. The book is an interesting story about the day-to-day activities of the characters and the thematic experiences they have. A book that was written over a hundred years ago has been adapted to a film of the same title in 2011. The book and movie share many similarities but also have some differences.

The movie has created characters based off of the issues and depictions in the book. The movie also has its own authors, who are the characters created by the story. The author can then create characters and coordinate the story to meet his needs. This is an important point in creating a connection between the work of the author and the movie creators. This same portrayal helps to create a unifying effect between the book and movie.

The movie also has a similar thematic representation. The book can contain a variety of themes. These themes provide key information and are crucial to the thematic representation. In this example, the theme analysis is the most important issues to define how a movie is made and also those that are relevant to the book’s development and movie’s creation. The movie depicts themes such as friendship, betrayal and love that are found in the book.

The same story, written by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in the book and adapted into a movie by Baz Lurhmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio has some differences. The book’s Tom Buchanan has a different character than the movie, which is based on the same story. Tom Buchanan’s character in the novel is that of a man who wants to see things done the right way. Tom Buchanan was portrayed in the movie as an evil character. Tom is turned into the bad guy and his many crimes show this. Tom Buchanan’s character is transformed from a boring guy to a villainous character who acts in ruthless ways and seems too lazy.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s work takes us to a different time. The book depicts and shows the time of the past. It is possible to link the book and the past by tying it to events and times that were depicted in the text. The movie depicts the same events and problems, but in a different way. This can be seen through the use of loud rap and movies. These elements are essential to creating a book-movie system. The movie uses the same modern technology to highlight and show the differences.

The book has a general description of the book’s creation and its issues. The book has been the primary concept behind the development of the movie. There are many similarities between the book and the movie. The book and the movie have many similarities, but they also differ in some ways.

Supersize Me: The Negative Impact Of Fast Food Industry On People In The United States

Morgan Spurlock’s documentary ‘SuperSize Me’ explores fast-food companies and their impact on McDonalds. The film discusses obesity and the diabetes epidemic that is sweeping the United States. Morgan decides that he will only eat McDonald’s food for 30 days. He will eat a minimum of one meal from every menu item, and if asked to increase the size of his meal then he should upgrade. Morgan found that to get the same amount of exercise as the average American, he could only do 5,000 steps each day. He must eat breakfast, dinner, and lunch three times a day. Morgan won’t be able eat either if McDonalds does not provide him with food.

Morgan goes to three doctors who will be his guides for the 30-day documentary. Morgan visits a cardiologist to have his vitals checked. They told him to expect changes all over his entire body when he visits each doctor. Morgan’s liver can metabolize fat, and he gains weight. This will cause his cholesterol levels to rise. Morgan visits doctors and also hires nutritionists and dieticians who track every food that he consumes.

Morgan feels sluggish and tired after eating McDonalds for 30 days. He can also experience headaches due to the sugar he consumes. After eating a large meal, he complained of stomach pain and constant vomiting. In the 30-day period that he ate constantly, he gained 24 lbs. His cholesterol also rose from 65 to 65. Morgan went to the doctor every month and they would tell him that his liver was being damaged. They also said that it was likely that Morgan had heart disease. Morgan was destroying his liver because he had metabolize all the fat.

In the United States, obesity is on the rise. Morgan is shown eating McDonald’s three times per day in this documentary, which isn’t realistic for the average American. The documentary did say that 22% were heavy McDonald’s users. This could mean they eat McDonald’s 3-4 times or more a week. McDonalds’ marketing strategy and the way they target children or families with lower incomes was the main influence on this documentary. Families with lower incomes can afford to feed their kids cheap, filling meals that last a long while. McDonalds’ marketing strategy is aimed at children. This can be seen in the playgrounds, the birthday parties, the toys for children, Ronald McDonald, the clown and other innovative tactics.

To keep people from eating such unhealthy foods, I think that the government must regulate some fast food practices. Though the government is likely to resist the temptation to encourage the American people to avoid fast food, the lobbying power of the fast food sector and its multi-millionaire lobbyists will make it difficult. McDonalds could sacrifice some of its profits to make healthier food, but Morgan in the movie stated that McDonalds was a company whose loyalty lies within their shareholders.

Summary

The movie 300 is based on Frank Miller’s fictional comic book based on Thermopylae, which occurred in 400 B.C. It is a moving story about the bravery of 300 Spartan fighters led by Leonidas. These warriors made a stand for honor at the Hot Gates against Xerxes’s insurmountable Persian force, commanded by a monstrous golden and pierced deity. The Spartans, despite being hapless in comparison to the Persians fought the Persians with a strong sense of honor and strategic planning. The importance of teamwork, leadership and strategy planning has been shown in many ways.

Introduction Leonidas the Spartan king, with a small force of 300 men as his protector, is driven to a place called Hot Gates, where he will face an uncountable number of Persians who are threatening. Leonidas realizes that he will not be able to take the entire Spartan military force because of a mysterious occupation. Leonidas’ three hundred men are joined by 6,700 warriors of different Greek cities. Together, they hold off the Persians’ attacks for several days until the Persians finally give up.

Leonidas’s slyness was tested when he was only a young Spartan boy of ten or so years. He had been left alone in the wild to test it. Leonidas, a young man of maybe ten years old, was thrown into the wild alone and unarmed to test his quality and sly. Leonidas pursued the wolf until its growth was severely restricted. At that point, the child killed the wolf and returned triumphantly to Sparta. He was at last to become ruler. After a long period of rule, Leonidas acquires an agent for the ruler Xerxes. Leonidas, refusing to be humbled in this way by Xerxes’ emissary, executes him along with his entourage.

Sparta receives news the following year of a massive Persian invasion. Leonidas decides to send the Spartan Armed Forces against the Persians in a coordinated attack, according to law. But he first asks for the opinion and approval of the elder Spartans, known as the ephors. The ephors therefore counsel a young spiritualist who is a prophet. She asks for the Carneia to be monitored, and insists that Spartan military forces should not be activated during this religious time. Leonidas is frustrated and returns to Sparta, unaware that the Persians had effectively paid off degenerate Ephors. Leonidas, who is forbidden from activating Spartan’s military force, decides that he will go for a walk in the countryside. The ruler, sensing his thoughts, orders his three hundred guardians to accompany him. Leonidas and his entourage then walk northwards, where they are met by a group of troopers who have gathered to protect Greece.

Leonidas, leading a combined army of 7,000 men through the Hot Gates or Hell’s Mouth; the history records the place as Thermopylae. There, Leonidas prepares to meet a formidable Persian army made up of many different countries and an enormous number of soldiers. A distorted hunchback named Ephialtes approaches Leonidas in camp. Ephialtes explains how his Spartan father had opted for outcasting after the arrival of a young child who was disfigured, rather than submitting child murder in accordance with Spartan Law. Ephialtes presents a fit and ready Ephialtes expresses the desire to fight with the Spartans and regain his family’s respect. Ephialtes is not acknowledged by Leonidas and he attempts to commit suicide.

As the Persian army arrives, different battles are fought. Leonidas, his 300 Spartans and their victories are unmistakable. The Persians suffer constant and terrible losses. Epilates returns to consciousness, and after being scolded by Leonidas, he searches for Xerxes. He wants to find the Persian lord who controls the shrouded mountain passes that lead around the Hot Gates. Within hours, the Persian army has surrounded the Greeks. A few Spartans remained behind, but everyone else deserted.

Leonidas celebrates his victory, knowing that his deification will inspire Sparta to rally for a good cause, as will the whole of Greece. He sends Dilios (a Spartan Storyteller) to escape from Hot Gates so that he can deliver the message to Sparta. Leonidas’s three hundred men perform their duty with unmatched excellence in a final fight before they are slaughtered. Their flag activity, as Leonidas predicted, arouses Greek opposition. Dilios ends the realistic novel by driving a Spartan group into battle at Plataea. Before rushing into combat, he empowers them by telling the story of Leonidas’s victory at the Hot Gates.

The Leadership of King Leonidas As a child, he learned to defend Sparta. As a young warrior, Leonidas defeated deadly creatures by using his exposed hands. Sparta lived in dangerous times and was constantly threatened by eastern enemies. Leonidas calls them “Persian cowards” and they are determined to conquer the world of enlightenment. He is an expert warrior-lord. Leonidas wasn’t the kind of lord to only give orders. Instead, he was out in the frontline fighting with his men. As he shouts, “Spartans will never retreat!” Spartans never surrender!”

Then he married the queen Gorgo. They have a daughter together. Leonidas is a similar extreme person as his significant other. The Queen, who is a strong woman, has instructed her husband to protect Sparta at all costs. He married Queen Gorgo and has a son with her. Leonidas is a similar extreme person as his significant other. The Queen taught her husband to protect Sparta at all costs. “Come home with your shield,” she said, “or even on it.” He was tasked with protecting Sparta and the Persian army of one hundred thousand warriors.

The 300 Spartan warriors have never been in a situation this intense. They’re facing an army that is multiple times larger than theirs. Leonidas’s message to his troops is: “The World will Know that Free Men stood up against a Tyrant, that Few stood up against Many, and Before this battle was finished, Even a God-King can Bleed!” The general image portrays horrifying, ruthless, and strong. Leonidas is determined to protect his family. Xerxes, the ruler of Sparta has not only offended Sparta but also compromised it. Leonidas, before kicking the Persian ambassador into a pit, said to him: “You have brought the crowns of conquered rulers to my city. You insult my queen. You are insulting my queen.

The movie, “Servant Leadership” teaches us about leadership. Let’s begin at the top. Here, King Leonidas is positioned in the foreground of the Spartans as they make a vault using lances. On the other hand, King Xerxes is seated in a high honorable position. A large Persian armed forces are before him. When the leader of a group is there, he or she can inspire and motivate them. The Spartan driver and the Spartan military demonstrate a sense humility. The group will make a valiant attempt to achieve an ideal leader. In the final scene, Stelios a young, vibrant and extremely talented Spartan warrior said, “It is an honor to die by your side (King Leonidas),” and Leonidas replied, “It is an honor to live at yours.”

VisionA leader who lacks a center and a dream will struggle to guide the group. A smart leader will have a strategy, a methodology that fits the objectives of his association, set goals, and be able to lead the group. In the movie, King Leonidas centered his vision around his desire to destroy Xerxes’s power and not submit to him. This image shows King Leonidas’s constant concentration on pushing ahead. He doesn’t give up even when he loses his fearless Spartan fighters.

Growth MindsetAt first, we observe a Spartan King assembling 300 of their best warriors with other Greek city-states. He has a mentality of development, one that pushes forward despite obstacles, endures despite failures, and puts in effort to achieve authority. It is inspiring to see Greeks respect and remember King Leonidas. It is important to have a growth attitude, which means you must be willing to go down in the depths of knowledge.

Skill Set “Excellence does not come as a present, but is a skill acquired through practice. – Plato”- The creation of a range in abilities helps a pioneer gain a position on the battlefield. Straightforward traditions have been cruel. King Leonidas had to go to agoge to learn the Spartan way of life. Leonidas is seen as gifted and well-prepared to lead Spartan forces during the war.

CourageTowards the end, King Leonidas’s comment “Spartans” is very interesting. Daxos replied, “Prepare to Glory”, but Daxos said that glory was not possible at the moment. The Spartan king’s gallant response is evident. “Well, we have a choice. Spartans never retreat! Spartans never surrender. Pioneers are characterized by their courage and strength. Holly Lisle said something that I find most inspiring: “Courage means taking a step further than you thought you could.”

The importance of team dynamicsGroup attachment refers to how much individuals are attracted to a group and inspired to stay a member. It occurs when group members become an important part of a person’s personality. This film shows that Sparta has a very strong group. Leonidas gathers his three hundred best officers, pretending to be his own guardian.

The Persian emissary was shocked when they used executed Persian cub-scouts to make mortar in Rmopylae. In Sparta, for example, a similar basis allows them to share the same perspective on various issues. This leads to more cooperation and less conflict. At age 7, young men who were not particularly intelligent left home to receive full-time, professional military training. To test their endurance and strength, they were flagellated at the Artemis Orthia asylum. Spartans possessed a highly developed physical well-being or a more rigorous preparation. Sparta, a military-oriented state, was the reason why Spartan characters on screen played a major role in the Peloponnesian war, in which they conquered Persia, Athens, and the rest of Greece. This strengthened the bond between the groups. The amassing factor is another important aspect that affects group unity. The reason for this is that smaller groups can better agree on goals and coordinate their work. The commitment to a project may be affected if there are not enough people in the group to carry out all of its errands.

ConclusionIt is important to note that the film 300 provides viewers with very valuable lessons in leadership and teamwork.

Pick the battleground which best suits you. The Hot Gates was chosen by King Leonidas as the best area to defend Sparta against the Persians. Choose a route where you can flourish and where your opponents will fail. Pick a plan of action that accentuates your strengths while eliminating the weaknesses of your opponents. Cover your back in the goat’s way. Nobody can tell who is sneaking behind you. Many well-trained warriors will outperform many weaker ones. The Spartan300 were able to hold off the Persians’ million for quite some time because they were strong, well-trained, incredible. When the owner is willing to work together and build a strong network, he can easily beat many competitors. You’ll never know what you’ll need when. They were ready to fight and did not falter. You should always be learning, improving yourself, and testing your abilities. You can expect your enemies to steal your possessions the moment you lower your defenses.

Never surrender, never withdraw. Even if they lost, King Leonidas’ 300 soldiers fought for Greece without ever retreating or surrendering. Many people quit because it is too hard to maintain consistency or to keep learning. If you give up, if you quit, you will never know if a few months of hard work would have been enough. Don’t let the gods dictate your actions. You are responsible for what you do. The Ephor were wrong when they told King Leonidas to stay down before a fight. The wrong advice can lead you down a road that is not right for you. Never hesitate to do what you think is right for yourself. All the gods have been in your position at some point. Always adapt to the changing circumstances. It’s your best chance of survival. Spartans won the battle when the Persians used Rhinos. The Spartans adjusted to the elephants that they used and were victorious. The industry is constantly evolving. To stay at the top of the heap of crushed competitors, it is important to keep up with the latest technological advancements.

You can do it. The Ephor were wrong to tell King Leonidas that he should stand down on the day of the fight. It is easy to get advice from others in business. You can channel the best and worst. Avoid individuals who have contradictory thoughts. Never be afraid to take risks and always do what’s right for you. Give your partners respect. The Spartan soldiers owed their success to their individual officers. Arcadians were also there to help them. Your deal is dependent on everyone. Your success is dependent on your partners.

Each record will be broken. When the Persian Dispatcher made his final suggestion to King Leonidas in the Persian Empire, he acted arrogantly and supported himself with past achievements. Although success is a great thing, always strive to improve on what you have done. In a few seconds, a champion of one day can become mediocre the next. You don’t want to risk being kicked down the pit.

Even a god-man can bleed. Even the seemingly unapproachable Xerxes could bleed, as King Leonidas showed. You can’t help but be impressed by the juggernauts who are in a particular field. It’s hard to imagine that you could ever compete with someone of such magnitude. The world is ruled by incredible ideas, and nobody is far away. Be creative, lead the way, and be courageous despite your god-like rivalry. Together, we will be able to throw them away. Spartans were the most cohesive as a group. They are able to work together. We should all know that working together is essential for progress. A leader can help you achieve success. Leonidas Lord was a great pioneer. Yet, what was most important was that his followers followed him with fervor. Consider the experiences that are around you. You are surrounded by people who can guide you and offer you help. We are all interconnected and working towards a common objective.

You can be a deformed and repulsive troll but still enjoy the benefits of systems management. Epilates was a systems administrator even with his hideously misshaped body. Xerxes was his friend, and he benefited from both. Networking is a great way to capitalize on both. You can always look for other opportunities if you’re not able to succeed in your chosen field. Your best interests should be at the forefront of any decision you make. As expected, the Spartans changed their strategies to counteract the latest flood of attackers. It is important to determine the best way to organize our battle plan for our desired outcome. They will always remember this story not for what they achieved but because of how valiant they were. Leaders who are great are brave and strong, and not cool and bossy!

How Social Media Affects The Youngsters In Generation Like Movie

In Generation Like (2014, a documentary), filmmakers looked at how social media has impacted the younger generation. Douglas Rushkoff interviewed a number of people in an effort to demonstrate how social media influencers, celebrities online, and brands have influenced their lives. Frontline used talking heads as a way to explore the idea that brands and corporations can use sneaky advertising to make a big impact on youth without them knowing.

Tyler Oakley was a well-known YouTube personality. Rushkoff interviewed Oakley to find out how he got his many subscribers. Oakley answered, “It came about without my intention.” Rushkoff carefully crafted the words “opened up many opportunities” so that viewers would interpret Oakley’s unintentional promotion of other brands. We saw him in the MTV music award, at One Direction concerts, and in Pepsi advertisements. Frontline used Oakley’s interview with the talking heads to prove that he thought he had fun, but he really was promoting these companies.

Ceili lynch, a young The Hunger Games (2002) fan, is shown as a teenager that has been sucked into unintentionally advertising the movie. Rushkoff questions her about how much The Hunger Games she enjoys, so that there is no doubt about her obsession. He also wants to convey that she’s just enjoying the movie and not trying to market it. He doesn’t say, “Does Ceili believe you are part of marketing The Hunger Games?” but rather, he says, “Ceili isn’t being marketed at, she’s part of the campaign herself.”

Rushkoff’s interview with Lynch and Oakley is meant to “expose”, or show, that members of the “Generation Like”, who are unaware that companies exploit their passions for profit, have been “suppressed” by the media. He doesn’t ask questions that could be detrimental to his thesis, but rather questions that can provide the evidence that he requires. He uses videos and photos of Oakley’s and Lynch’s action to make the audience believe they are not aware that they work for Pepsi and The Hunger Games. He uses a “talking head” interview style to “expose” the marketing practices of today.

Liam Horne’s role is that of a conscious but naive participant. Horne talks about being sponsored by Ford and Adidas in some videos, but it is the companies that are the ones helping Horne. Horne appears to be happy with the assistance he has received, but Rushkoff is not interested in asking him about his promotion of brands that may or may NOT agree with. Rushkoff continues to push his agenda using the technique of talking heads, even if the person does not seem to be a perfect fit for the theme.

Oakley Lynch Horne all participated willingly on social media. The three men seem to enjoy sharing and creating content about the things they are interested in. The filmmakers purposefully avoided talking about the other benefits or drawbacks of social media. The talking-heads technique employed by the makers of Generation Like was an effective way of showing that young people today are unknowingly involved in the marketing of many popular brands.

Dora And The Lost City Of Gold’ Movie Review

Dora and the Lost City of Gold 2019 Story: After spending the majority her time on Earth exploring the wilderness, Dora is now facing her most dangerous experience to date – secondary education. Dora, Boots and a motley crew of teenagers embark on an adventure to save her family while trying to solve the mystery behind the lost Incan settlement.

Dora the Explorer was a kid’s animated arrangement that ran for more than 10 years. It has been translated into several dialects. The singing guide was accompanied by the age of children, Swiper the Fox was told not to swipe at the monkey and a little traveler. While the movie version of this famous arrangement begins with Dora’s cousin Diego as a child, Diego must leave the wilderness to go to Los Angeles. Dora is then left alone, to explore the world on her own. This goes on for years and now little Dora has grown up. Imagine what could happen to you if your only companion was a monkey. You would also have your guardians and teacher. Dora (Isabela moner) is not the Dora that we see in the movie. She sings, talks to the animals, and is too focused on her parents’ search for Parapata, the lost Incan town. When she is sent off to her Abuela to live and study with her cousin and his family, the young woman has no idea how secondary schools work.

She has never seen school transport. She is absurdly positive and has a rucksack filled with emergency supplies. (This will make adults feel a chill because they’ll remember that this is a world where it’s essential.) Diego (Jeff Wahlberg), a school know-it-all, is not keen on her presence. Sammy (Madeleine Madden), the new student at the school, can’t stand the idea that she might be as smart as this young woman. The story is a typical secondary school tale, with a character who seems to be more like a 10 year old than a 16 year old, but has a comic plan that is stunning. Does this sound like something terrible? This is not the case. The movie producers made a great decision by not keeping the children in tweens. They all demonstrate that age, but it’s a positive thing for children to see secondary students that way. Even when they are playing stereotypes, the young cast remains surprisingly upbeat. Nicholas Coombe’s performance as Randy the nerd is outstanding. We’re generalizing here about nerds, but he is delightful. Randy’s computer-game knowledge may make you recognize yourself. Randy will be able to decipher the many traps in the Sanctuary, as he has played Tomb Raider a lot. I knew what was coming because I’ve done it myself. I know he was the nerd but it wasn’t hard to love him.

The movie Dora And The Lost City Of Gold is in a way a continuation to the popular animated series “Dora the Explorer”. Now, it is a common practice to create films based off of cartoons. This brings back the nostalgia for those who grew up with cartoons.

A Review Of The Personality Of Hunter Patch Adams As Shown In The Film Patch Adams, With Tom Shadyac As The Director

Hunter Patch Adams plays the lead role in the movie Patch Adams. Hunter, who had attempted suicide and checked himself into a hospital for mental health treatment, was confused and lost. When he was overwhelmed by the uncertainty in his life, he knew he should seek medical treatment. It is clear that his character develops and uses discernment to give meaning to his own life, as well as the lives of others.

Patch, a patient at the mental institution, is given the time to think and feel about his future. Arthur Mendelson teaches Patch to see beyond the problem in order to find the answers. He helps Rudy, his roommate, kill imaginary squirrels later that night. Patch finally finds the answer he’s been looking for. He is now aware that he has a desire to listen and learn from people. Rudy and other patients helped him help himself. He helped others forget their problems, while he forgot his own. He leaves the hospital in order to achieve his dream.

The four principles that make up the discernment process are incarnation and death, giving and being given up, universality and Communion. The principle of incarnation, death, and universality reminds people to live in the moment and express their love because they may not get another chance. Giving up and giving all you have is what it means to be given up. It’s about doing everything to improve humanity and accepting others with more love. The ability to accept all humans, no matter their race, ethnicity or background, as equals is universality. The final principle in communion is unity. We can only love each other when we unite as humans.

Patch shows us in an easy to understand way how he incorporated the four discernment criteria. Patch accepted people as they are. In the hospital or with his class, he always treated people with dignity. He was always willing to help those in need, even if he himself needed it. He helped Arthur open the clinic, but he sacrificed his pay and sleep to help those in need. Patch could then feel closer to the world. He could feel a part.

Patch’s actions demonstrate the principle Agape. He was working and doing things indirectly for himself and others. He helps sick patients forget their pain and sickness when he visits them in the hospital during medical school. Patch’s passion to help others led him to choose to be a doctor in order to improve patient lives. He realized the need for a physician who listens to patients and shows them that they are cared about. After helping Rudy, he knew he could help others. After helping Rudy, he began his journey to become a doctor.

Patch also did a good job of listening to his own heart. When he visits the hospital, he sees a woman denied access to her daughter due to having to fill out medical paperwork. Patch’s encounter with the woman at the hospital makes him imagine Gesundheit, an institution where all medical treatment is free. Humor is used to alleviate pain and suffering. Patch’s intentions were genuine, and he had no attachments or bonds to the world. He wanted to be a doctor and help people, but he didn’t care about the money or status. Patch felt bliss, joy and God’s wisdom by helping others.

Patch has a problem when Corinne’s murdered. He feels like a failure and wants to leave. The shock at her death is shown, but he realizes that he has to stay. Thomas Aquinas says, “The good angels often frighten by their arrival, but quickly become a comforting presence.” Patch, in Wolff 47, asks God to give him a sign. When he sees a butterfly he realizes he is unable to leave Corinne. God’s plan for Patch continues. Patch’s dream was strengthened by Corinne dying. Patch is not going to let the Dean expel Patch because of his extreme joy. He was able to convince the doctors to be more sensitive and compassionate towards their patients. Patch was able to overcome the obstacles because God and Corinne were there for him.

Patch’s ability of using discernment allowed him to make an informed choice so he can help others. Patch was not only unique in his expression but also had an exceptional gift for helping others. He was a person who touched all those he encountered, from his classmates to the nurses.
