She displays many traits to be labeled as a powerful woman. As shown in this quote, “I grant I am a woman, but withal A woman well-reputed, Cato’s daughter.” Portia makes it well known she is a woman from a noble family with a long line of standing power. In agreement, Portia obtains a huge sense of courage to confidently own her strength to Brutus as the strong woman she knows she is (II, i, 317-318). Furthermore, Portia’s love for Brutus is undeniable, so as he faces dangers she is surely there to protect and look out for him. As Brutus talks of going to the Senate, Portia holds herself back from speaking from her heart through her determination.
Despite outnumbering and short notice, the South is able to easily push back the North. At the same time, despite his having no soldier training, Johnny is able to help in the battle to return home a hero. Regardless of the amazing features of this film, it was not well received at its time of release. Keaton’s well-planned action scenes were viewed as tedious and detracting from his classic comedy. The General is acclaimed for its cinematic beauty, but the audience of those days was looking for Keaton’s comedy.
This commercial futures Mathew McCaugheys, a popular celebrity driving a Lincoln and talking about going backward to move forward, a metaphor that has nothing to do with the vehicle performance. The logical fallacy is the appeal to false authority. This can be seeing when the celebrity, in this case McCaugheys, speaks about his experience driving the vehicle, as if he would be an authority on the subject, when in actuality there is no evidence to support his genuine expertise. The audience has to assume that his taste is anything but great; therefore, he must drive the best car.
Ms. Cannon is a Mother and most of all a Phenomenal women. However she is a woman with a story that is ready to be told. Like William Shakespeare said, "Heavy is the head that wears the crown" and this crown is one to be share. Breaking the chains of the statistics and flipping her negative into a positive. She believes "she had to go through the challenges of breast cancer to be able to do the work god sent her to do."
All in all, Ellen Degeneres and Oprah Winfrey are wealthy celebrities who have earned the trust of the American people, who listen to what they have to say. Neither has forgotten how hard it was to reach where they are. They, therefore, reach out to Americans with advice and support to inspire others to do the same. The love that fans feel for them both is seen by the fact that everybody calls them by their first names, showing the connection they have made to their fans. Even though Ellen has done a lot in regardless to getting where she is today along with all the work she still puts in, when comparing the two, Oprah has had a lot more experience when it comes to her life
A segment of life in Hollywood is being spread across the screen of the Music Hall in Sunset Boulevard. Using as the basis of their frank, caustic drama a scandalous situation involving a faded, aging silent screen star and a penniless, cynical young scriptwriter, Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder (with an assist from D. M. Marshman, Jr.) have written a powerful story of the ambitions and frustrations that combine to make life in the cardboard city so fascinating to the outside world. Sunset Boulevard is by no means a rounded story of Hollywood, past or present. But it is such a clever compound of truth and legend—and is so richly redolent of the past, yet so contemporaneous—that it seemingly speaks with great authority. Sunset Boulevard is
When Wilson was up for reelection in the 1980 's, he barely saved his job when issues pertaining to his personal life and character were brought up by his opponent. Wilson 's charisma and likeability kept him in office despite what Pakistan 's President Zia referred to as his "character flaws." Perhaps it is Wilson 's flaws that make him a likeable figure both in life and on screen. However, it cannot be argued that Wilson 's colorful background makes him an unlikely hero. Political heroes are often men and women of sacrifice and virtue.
Because of Roosevelt’s reference, he easily received the votes to win him the election. Taft and Roosevelt were differentiated in many, many ways. Unlike Roosevelt, Taft was not quick on his feet and very indecisive. Taft responded slowly, approached problems slowly, even said “[He doesn’t] like politics” and “[He doesn’t] like the spotlight.” Taft’s personality and mindset quickly brought him into conflict with progressives. Taft believed high tariffs limited
Oprah is known as one of the most influential and successful people in the world. More than just a talk show host, Oprah is an award-winning actress and producer, a book critic, a publisher, a media mogul and a philanthropist, who many people believe is the most influential women in the world. Through it all, Oprah continues to be a down-to-earth and easy to talk to woman. But just like anyone who has achieved the success she 's been able to attain, Oprah Winfrey 's story needed to begin somewhere (Fry)(Tennant). Oprah was born on January 29, 1954 in Kosciusko, Mississippi.
Rowling’s response to the question, “Do you think Snape is a hero?” during a 2007 web chat sponsored by the publisher Bloomsbury to which she remarks: “Yes, I do; though a very flawed hero. An anti-hero, perhaps. He is not a particularly like-able man in many ways. He remains rather cruel, a bully, riddled with bitterness and insecurity — and yet he loved, and showed loyalty to that love and, ultimately, laid down his life because of it. That’s pretty heroic!
Nikki Vollrath Mr. Domino English 4 Honors April 29, 2016 Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey is arguably one of the most successful women in America. She has changed her own life as well as others through television, social media, and books. Oprah understands what it is like to suffer and persevere. What she has learned she tries to preach to her fans so they can get through tough times and continue on the journey of life. The theme of perseverance is seen in both Oprah Winfrey’s life and in her works, the book, “The uncommon wisdom of Oprah Winfrey” and her TV show, “The Oprah Winfrey show.” Oprah Winfrey was born on January 29th, 1954.
My interest was probably motivated by the slim chance of her being elected president, and my similar gamble of being a success; especially, in sports which looked as difficult as her becoming President. Also, her documentary film reminded me of how old I am, and has me anticipative about my future well-being; furthermore, in mind to stay flexible and possess an open mind. I was mostly apprehensive about the film, being white an all, and pondered both sides of that little (small) guy humor; moreover, the unappreciative status of it. Being the little guy of sorts, Shirley Chisholm seemed to be a plus for her profession possessing an attractive/infectious voice that inspired determination; also, her humorous female status contrasted well with the other political personalities happening at that time; such as, the Black Panthers. Nevertheless in afterthought of that time period, one can see we’re all dreamers an arenas apart from each other, and for that purpose space and the chance to grow suggests more than just work, rather an understanding of the needs of all people.
The Lady in Red Noga Sklar After the first (and foremost?) presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the most rejected presidential candidates in recent American history, I asked my brilliant (and authoritative) husband Alan: “Nu, after all these documentaries and debates, are you still in favor of Donald Trump as President of the United States?” At first he was quiet. Then he did his best to escape a full answer. “Hmm… well… I never said I was in his favor; I only said he was going to win. He is going to win.” As has turned out to be the rule these days, this is not the real truth.
Donald Trump, the billionaire real-estate developer and television personality, has now added “presidential candidate” to his list of titles. Surprisingly, he is doing considerably well in the public polls. His recent popularity surge may be due to his lack of a filter, or perhaps it’s purely for the entertainment his spectacles create. Whatever the reason, I find it troubling that such a deplorable man is currently leading the GOP polls. Donald Trump would not be a suitable President of the United States due to his outspoken public prejudices against minorities and misogynistic tendencies.
Ben Carson, a Republican candidate for president, began his campaign with little support, but soon developed a good backing upon good Republican values. With his favorability nearing that of Donald Trump, Carson is very successful at this point in the running. Carson is a very intelligent man, with a PhD in medicine. He worked as an active surgeon for many years, deciding to retire in order to become president in the recent years. He desires to eliminate Obamacare and adjust the tax system, among other issues on his platform.
