Critique La Ventura - 928 words
La Ventura is widely regarded as one of the greatest films to date. Michelangelo Antonioni didnt win the Palme Dor, but it did get a Special Jury Prize during the Cannes film festival of 1960. No surprise he didnt win the Palme Dor, but why give him an award in the first place? The reason for winning the title seemed unclear at first because the film had serious issues with breaking the rules of standardized filmmaking. For example having his actors enter the scene from opposite directions from where the came the shot before. However LAvventura is a whole other world of its own. The title translates to English as The Adventure and indeed thats what it is. The movie is relaxing to watch thank ...

Chilvarly - 1,457 words
Chilvalry is the most significant concept throughout history. Chivalry, in its formal code, came to exist in the Middle Ages around the 12th century. It is not clear as to whether the Romans, the Franks, or the Germans gave rise to chivalry, but each culture brought the seeds of conduct with them. The formal code was based on knightly conduct, with special emphasis on the courtly manners towards women. Chivalry was such an important aspect of morality that the church became heavily involved. The church used the code of chivalry to reshape the idea of the social warrior. In doing this, the church wanted citizens to identify with virtue, military excellence with courtesy, a sense of justice, p ...

Naders Machinacs - 828 words
The federal election laws influenced Nader in many ways. He was excluded form the national televised debates. A bi partisan committee plans these debates on elections. They set the criteria for inclusion. Many third party advocates argue that this committee is biased and doesn't give the third parties a chance. This was the case with Nader. The committee says that a candidate with fewer than 15% in a national pole doesn't have a substantial chance of winning, and therefore shouldn't be included in the debate. Jesse Ventura of the Independence party, and governor of Minnesota, made an interesting point on an episode of Hardball. He stated that although Nader doesn't have the 15% necessary to ...

... has little to do with what can be changed right now, calling past problems "psychiatric garbage."(Page 37) The "what" of behavior is important then, not the "why" a client did something.

What behavior is responsible for causing the difficulty and how do we modify it? He highlights in the Identity Society (1975) principles of Reality therapy: involvement of the therapist or helper, awareness of the current behavior, evaluating behavior to see if it is good for the client or people who care about the client, Planning responsible behavior, commitment to the plan (us ...

Tobacco Stuff - 1,925 words
... ongress. The government's suit is simply an act of extortion, hoping the cigarette companies will settle the case out of court as they did with the states' cases earlier. When the tobacco industry settled the cases with the states, despite a string of victories in the courts, the precedent was set that the industry would rather settle than fight. The government has targeted this industry in the hopes that the industry will again cave in from the outside pressure of public opinion. (Barr, 7). This leads to the question of, "why stop with the tobacco industry?" The government could easily target other sectors of private industry. The alcohol industry is a prime target. There are over 105,0 ...
