Edited Reality A Look Into Mtvs The Real World - 1,327 words
Edited Reality: A Look into MTVs The Real World My life can not go on. How can I continue to live when I realize that we pass stereotypical, trendy garbage off as respectable American television? My goal is not to rain on anyones parade, but upon reviewing MTVs The Real World I felt sick to my stomach. This show is everything we dont want people to know about American youth This show portrays 18-23 year old young adults as emotional head cases. The Real World takes every stereotype a person could ever imagine and exploits it. If the show really wanted to show reality MTV would not edit it to turn it into a complete and total soap opera. The only thing real about MTVs The Real World is the RE ...

Sex And Alcohol In The Real World - 853 words
MTV has been putting seven strangers into a mansion for years, but none of the previous episodes have been so intoxicated and as sexually charged as The Real World---New Orleans.

By putting seven gorgeous people in one house, every roommate is attracted to everyone else. This is what the creators edit to show the public audiences, because sex sells.

Manets A Bar At The Folies Bergere - 1,248 words
Manet's painting, A Bar at the Folies-Bergre, was an integral factor in the rise of a new era in art; through the emergence of a contemporary Parisian city, Modern art began to flourish during the late 1800's. Being a painting of extreme complexity and ambiguity, many art critics have commented on the formal aspects of the painting, as well as the social reactions to this specific, and novel form of art. The purpose and meaning of the mirror behind the lady and the disparity of reality versus reflections, pose immense controversy and are discussed in Robert Herbert's essay, Impressionism: Art, Leisure, & Parisian Society, Bradford R. Collins, Twelve Views Of Manet's Bar, Jack Flam's "Looking ...

Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...

The younger brother of Paul Dresser, a well-known songwriter, Theodore was a famous novelist known for his outstanding American writing of naturalism.

Even though a majority of his works were about his life experiences, he also wrote about new social problems that had risen in American at the time as well as things sexual in nature. Dreiser was born the ninth of ten surviving children in a family that was stricken with life-long poverty. His ...

... Zverkov, displaying the inner contradiction that makes Zverkov despise himself and his own values. The UM's description of his schooldays is predictable. The only new important piece of information that is the UM's family history--he was an orphan. The UM represents a character whose basic problems (before whatever insanity he has now) are insecurity and a need for acceptance, coupled with a constant feeling of alienation. The UM has never, throughout his entire life, had the benefit of a central group of people by whom he was accepted and loved. And, lacking that center, one can see how he entered his early school days feeling slighted and abandoned by the world, and carried these feeli ...

The Lesson - 820 words
In Up dikes A & P and the Barbaras The Lesson both stories are portrayed as using slang and even foul language to get their views across. Many of the language used expresses how both narrators view their way of life. The narrators are both a part of different societies, which shows how language differs in both characters. The foul language used in both stories does compare to the modern way our young youth talk today in every day life. Both narrators in both stories experience different views on situations that they are faced with.

Its Just Syrup And Water - 1,988 words
There is a grand war going on in todays world that many of us are unaware of, but are affected by everyday. This war takes place at home, on the highways, in magazines, and in stores. It is the war of marketing. Just about every company that sells something is in this war, with each competitor using catchy slogans and false perceptions to try and persuade the consumer into choosing their product over the other companies product. And Syrup, written by Maxx Barry, tells the story of this war in its own little way, using satire as its main weapon. He uses Syrup to satirically compare his characters to real world marketing and emphasizes this through making his novel seem like an ad campaign. En ...

The Things They Carried By Tim Obrien - 998 words
What did they carry? Was it just their standard issued gear? Was it relics from the world? Or was it something more sinister? Tim OBrien explores these ideas and many more in his heart stopping, breath taking, uniquely sad but true book, The Things They Carried. OBrien, a victim of the Vietnam War himself, shares with us stories that he endured while in the Nam. Moreover, I believe that this book of his was much more than a collection of stories. I believe this book was not meant to entertain our imagination nor was it written to indulge our fears. Rather, I believe it was a plea to God himself; an apology to the Almighty for the horrors and atrocities committed unto his children through the ...

Diversity In The Workplace - 1,141 words
Workplace Diversity: Fact or Fiction? Are todays corporate diversity programs truly effective? That question, posed by Robert J Grossman in an article carried by the Wall Street Journal Online on June 28, 2000, will be explored as part of the review of Mr. Grossmans article. The concept of diversity goes well beyond the historical employment equity legislation enacted in both federal and local jurisdictions. It calls for the recognition of the contributions that individuals can make as individuals, not just as members of legislatively designated groups. It calls for management of organizations to be totally inclusive, not just tolerating those who are different but celebrating those differen ...

Social Responsibilities Of Business - 1,680 words
Social responsibility is the concept that business is part of the larger society in which it exists and must therefore act in a way that not only advances the firm, but also serves the society. More than ever firms are being challenged to integrate social responsibilities in to their operations. Many firms now believe that social responsibility to be a lot more than granting money to community groups or volunteering their time to organizations - although these are both important ways that firms support the community. Today, business leaders recognize that a commitment to corporate social responsibility can provide distinct advantage in attracting and retaining employees, dealing with supplie ...

Theres More To Compensating Good People Than Money - 1,115 words
The very word conjures up images of money-a bountiful sum in cash or checks, a generous amount, richly deserved, paid in return for good works of some kind. But in today's economic and employment environment, giving someone a cash reward for work beyond the call of duty-a raise or a bonus-often has less impact than the employer intended. It simply isn't as surefire an "employee retention tool" is it seems to be. 1.Giving monetary rewards is like giving cash as a wedding present-useful, no doubt, but not very personal and not very thoughtful. 2.Cash rewards are one-dimensional. They mainly address the employee's financial needs, contributing only by implication to her or his needs for emotion ...

Stated differently, businesses must design the processes customers will use to conduct E-commerce transactions from a customer prospective. In other words, your business processes must support the customers needs, not merely your business needs. Many of the technologies noted above can provide customers with the ability to initiate and complete transactions on their own. They should be allowed to do so. When customers can complete most transactions using technology, midd ...
