In light of this “Queries of Unrest” becomes the more impactful and effective poem.
“Hate Poem” by Julie Sheehan describes how she transformed hatred to love. By looking at her pattern of thinking, it involves her own experience in the daily life that result the conflicts between her loves and hates. This poem begins with “I hate you truly. Truly I do” (1). This opening did not match the idea of a poem about hate; instead it is a poem about love. The author uses a list of her ordinary life events and moments to express that hatred feels are more about love during mundane events. The ironic tone of Julie Sheehan’s “Hate Poem” reveals that love and hate are closely related.
“Always Something More Beautiful” is a poem by Stephen Dunn, born in Forest Hills, NY. I got attracted to this poem, because it reminded me when I was at the Regionals for a Cross-Country race and reflected how humans’ life can be fair or beautiful.
The three texts which are the allegory, "Terrible Things", the poem, "First They Came For the Communists" and the memoir Night share some differences and similarities. These three texts are related during the Second World War in Europe and also about the Holocaust. The WWI (1939-1945) was the bloodiest war in the world's history. The conflict started in Germany led by Adolf Hitler that was the leader of the Nazi party, this man had thoughts in conquering foreign lands, increasing jobs, and exterminating all races that he thought were minorities. During his dictatorship, he sent troops to imprison and kill all the enemies of the Nazis who were Jews, homesexuals, communists etc. Hitler's enemies were sent to concentration camps where some were
I have always viewed movies as mood boosters. Whenever I watch a movie, I judge how good it is according to how well I understand the story. This is why I never truly understand how critics rate movies. However, upon reading John Berger’s “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”, I start to understand how paying attention to the different components of a film helps in understanding the essence of a story. As Berger once said, “There is no film that does not partake of dream. And the great films are dreams that reveal” (Berger 478). Reading these words instantly prompts me to reexamine the highly acclaimed musical, La La Land. The music, editing, and storyline clearly justify what Berger meant by a movie’s ability to transport us into the unknown whilst

This week I watched the Netflix original movie To the Bone. I was first drawn into this movie when looking through the Netflix originals list; when I saw the trailer.The trailer fascinated and captivated me, leading me to watch the movie. The movie follows a young women, named Ellen, on her journey seeking treatment for anorexia nervosa. The movie shows her struggle with thoughts of inadequacy, isolation, along with many other struggles as she struggles with her illness. Overall, minus a few hiccups, I greatly enjoyed this movie. The three aspects that most grabbed my attention becoming the sources of my enjoyment were character portrayal, the symbolism used in almost every scene, and connections to my own life experiences.
Considering the collaborative process of filmmaking, especially nowadays in most film production, the concept of there being a singular creative supervisor is debatable. Nonetheless one cannot deny the existence of directional motifs and instances of thematic and stylistic elements within the work of filmmakers like Tim Burton and Alfred Hitchcock. These directors indicate that within traditions and genres lies the overall definition of an auteur: a director whose inventive traits are listed throughout his/her work like a signature.
Amanda Putnam’s essay, “Mean Ladies: Transgendered Villains in Disney Films”, is a compelling piece on gender portrayal and views in Disney films. Putnam opened the essay with a personal anecdote about her daughter. Her daughter wanted a Disney movie without a “mean lady”, as in most Disney films the villains are scary, evil women. The real life evidence strengthened her claim that children are noticing the characterization of female villains in Disney films. The antidote was brought fill circle when she referred back to her daughter in the final paragraphs of her essay. Putnam explains that when her daughter asks questions about gender norms (boys having long hair, etc...), she knows that this is because of influences like Disney that establish and reestablish ‘correct’ gender standards in many of their films.
There are several interpretations of John Keats’ poem, Ode to a Nightingale. Keats begins his poem with talking about a bird that seems real, but as the poem progresses the bird turns into a symbol. Keats was envisioning how life could be much simpler and he was thinking about the different ways life is troublesome. His reality was taken over by his dream of having a life like the nightingale- worryless and free. He wishes that he could join the bird because if he could escape to the nightingale’s world, he could escape from reality and live a much more uncomplicated and worry free life. Although the meaning of the poem is debatable, there are different interpretations about just the last line of his poem and why Keats chose to end his poem
Remakes are one of Hollywood’s most trusted way to reduce financial risk. Stories that have been made throughout movie history are still being remade again and again. Films by directors in all genres are now being updated or remade to for the 21st century. Some people think these recurring stories are examples of the loss of creativity in Hollywood. Our group asked the question: Is there a formula to make a remake a financial success? When looking at this question of what makes a successful remake, our group chose to research Disney’s The Jungle Book. It has inspired countless influential T.V. shows, books and famous movies, even if its influence cannot be directly seen at first. The story has inspired stories like Tarzan, George of the Jungle,

Organizational Behavior is the field of study which investigates the impact that individuals, group and structures have on behavior within the organization. We are born in an organization, we live, we work and most probably we will die in an organization. Yet most of us do not understand how people function, behave and interact between each other within these organizations. We also do not understand if people shape an organization or an organization shapes people. Different people work differently in different situations. Organizational behavior helps to understand and predict behavior of the people and helps to improve relations between management and employees.
"What's the motto?" "Nothing. What's the motto with you?" I laugh, not for the first, or tenth, but for the thousandth time, Timon never fails to ignite the childish spark in my eyes. This Disney classic, along with many others, made me fall in love with the whimsical world of animation. At the tender age of 6 I can remember vividly deciding, "I want to do that." I wanted to create something that people would remember for years, share for generations, and relate to for a lifetime. I wanted to evoke the sadness the audience felt when Bambi lost his mother, the anger the audience felt when Scar betrayed his own brother, the joy the audience felt when Woody finally made it to Andy, and the respect the audience felt for the hard working Princess
