Positive Changes In The Workplace - 1,224 words
... l the mastodons and live for another season. We really have not changed all that much. Today's workplace requires us to give our best as often as possible. James Kouzes feels that "Opportunities to challenge the status quo and introduce change opens the doors to doing one's best. Challenge is the motivation environment for excellence (Kouzes, Posner 39)". The only exception that needs to be brought out by that is that we need to give people a change to get used to the changes before we introduce more. The major reason for stress is when you do not allow for the adjustment period in-between major changes. " Stress has gotten a bad name. Stress of all kinds is good ----- physical, emotiona ...

Entertainment Or Beyond - 715 words
Should movie producers make movies that are entertaining to the public, rather than making them appear as a teaching tool? This is a difficult question to answer, and depending on your views of society, there may be several opinions on this subject. Let us not forget that movies cost money to produce, and the investors of these firms want a return on their money. Therefore, a producer must create a film that will be profitable, while at the same time trying to personalize his or her work for future generations. Who is right? Possibly, no one can answer that question truly, but here are some important things to ponder the next time you go to view a film. Some may argue the filmmakers prime di ...

... fect of the camera circling the actors while the motion remained still. This gave the effect that time was able to stand still while the actors were able to defy the laws of gravity. This is a good example of how technology was used to enhance techniques that have been around for many years, in order to create a certain mood. By manipulating what the audience knows as the reality the directors were able to create something that had never been seen before, because of this it was much easier for the audience to believe in the farfetched reality of The Matrix. The remarkable thing about The Matrix was that the audience was seeing something that was visually stunning and at the same time it ...

... owever I had to constantly remind myself that the recovery process takes time. Just as I was recovering, my mother broke down weeping on the telephone on the night of April 18th. She said to me in fragmented sentences, "It's Wendy. Oh, my God. She's missing." Wendy was my mother's identical twin sister.

... motivation and their will to compete with the "regular" society. And it seems planned! One of the kids we interviewed said, "We're going the way of the American Indians. They killed our spirit, our self esteem." (qtd. in Reynaud 330) All that many young black men have to model themselves after is the media's definitions of who they are, and a cycle of destruction of the black family is allowed to propagate. JoNina Abron writes in The Black Scholar, "In most cases, the media's portrayal of life in the so-called black 'underclass' focuses on mores, living habits and social patterns, such as promiscuity, drug addiction and crime. Thus, the stereotypes that far too many whites have of black ...

... genre quickly died out. While Hollywood continues to portray black male characters with "good" or "bad" extremes, some progress is being made. Audiences in the 1990's are experiencing a boom of movies by black directors (Guerrero, Framing 158). Spike Lee's Clockers (1995), is an example of a film that shows improvement in how the black male is portrayed. Clockers is the story of drug dealer Strike and his relationship with the white cop Rocco. Like Priest in Superfly, Strike deals death to his own people in the form of crack cocaine. But Strike is more complicated a character than Priest, just as Clockers deals with more socially relevant issues than does Superfly. Where Superfly merely ...

The Power Of Cinema And Cinema Obscura - 1,080 words
Cinema has been used ruthlessly for their own ends since its creation, by politicians, entrepreneurs, generals, zealots, bishops, mass murderers, pedants, pedagogues, and snake oil salesmen. The early establishment of major studios, along with the creation of Hollywood and its subsequent emergence as the world centre of cinematic production, resulted in the studio system, which concentrated power over the medium in the hands of a few studio heads, who even owned the cinemas themselves. Consequently, the philosophies underpinning the message of most films became those of a few conservative men like Louis B.Mayer and Jack Warner. In 1934, all the major Hollywood studios signed a treaty that me ...
