There were really a certain person ought to have their will and wants to do things that make the entire state break down. This certain people do jobs through a high technology in order to do evil deeds not imagining the result of it as they want it to be -- to be a miserable nation.

One of these situations is come from the movie die hard 4. The story plays by means of a high technology computer based. They are using computers for communications, such for networks, radios and exploding viruses to end lives. With that movie there are opportunities, weaknesses and strength embodies.

From the aphorism that says “Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.” Has a correlation from the movie die hard 4. The opportunities that embodied in the movie is that when John McClane has the allies who is a hacker Matt Farrell realizes to be biased with John after all Gabriel the evil mastermind threaten him to kill. Moreover that is an opportunity for John since Matt knows the code to abort the shutdown sequence and to evade the evil plan of Gabriel. It seems most challenging because of the enraged of John to the criminal mastermind especially that Lucy is in the hand of Gabriel.

“An attack on the vulnerable United States infrastructures begins to shut down the entire nation” and when Farrell enter the code despite of Lucy’s pleas to resist, Farrell gives the code just for Lucy not to shoot by a gun of Gabriel’s hand. These are the weaknesses shows in the movie. But John the father of Lucy advances for just nothing to do but make things more to do for the resolution of the huge problem.

After all John has the strength for sacrificing himself even though he has been hit on his shoulder and still trying to kill Gabriel. He has also a grave to utter Gabriel for saying “Yippee ki yay, mother”

It is true that loving your nation is like killing someone’s lives. The word is “Live Free of Die hard”.

Die Hard Analysis

...Die hard is considered to be one of the greatest action movies made in the 1980’s-1990’s era. It was this movie that shot Bruce Williams to fame. Directed by John Mctiernan in 1988, Die hard was a movie with great acting, great action sequences, excellent on screen chemistry between actors and many more such qualities. However, one important thing that not many notice is the outstanding photography of the film. It is the astonishing photography of the movie that made movie goers sit on the edge of their seat in anticipation and excitements of what’s going to be John Mclane’s (Bruce Willis) next move to battle the terrorists. In this paper, I am going to discuss about the photography of the movie Die Hard and to do so I will highlight a few important aspects of photography such as shots, angles, lights amongst others. Shot “Shots are defined by the amount of subject matter that’s included within the frame of the screen” [ (Giannetti, 2011) ]. In general, there are 6 types of shots and these are extreme long shot, long shot, full shot, medium shot, close up and the extreme close up. These shots are all subject to human analysis that means what one director might consider a medium shot; it might be considered a close up by another director [ (Giannetti, 2011) ]. The movie Die hard is an amalgam of all these shots intertwined to give the audiences a complete and exciting cinematic experience....

John McLane, interrupts guy making out with his daughter, Lucy. She told the guy he was dead. [i.e. family dynamics, dysfunctional] She’s not talking to him. ‘You are such an asshole’.

Followed by quiet reaction – of bad guys, of the two in the car. ‘Have you done stuff like that before’, asks M (intertextual ref, but also motivated). Seven dead hackers so far, none of whom were on the FBI list of suspects. (Hackers used without knowing what they were involved in.) 4th of July weekend (fitting DH holiday template).

Robin Black Short Story

...It is too soon to die, when you are still a kid, and no one deserves to live through stuff like early deaths. But still, maybe it is destiny. But death is the one of the hardest things to get through. It does not become easier the older you get. There can be different types of factors for death. You can be very sick, like Terry, have physical damage, or you can be lucky to die of old age. Some people say, that you can die from grief. I do not think, that you can die from grief. You can die as a result of grief. You maybe stop eating or drinking, and that you can die for. But you cannot die exactly of grief. But another theme is also love. It is hard to lose someone, but losing someone you love is even harder. Death makes us appreciate life more, and the people, who are surrounding us. The name of the short story is ‘’Divorced, beheaded, survived’’. The name is a part of the rhythm: ’’ ‘’Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded survived’’, which refer to King Henry VIII six wives. He is divorced from his first wife, and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, got beheaded. The third wife dies, he is divorced from the fourth one, the fifth one is also beheaded, and the last wife survives. Death is something most of us do not want to face. It is hard for some people to admit, that everybody is going to die. Some loss feels unfair, and way to early. You have to let people use their time to grief. Maybe it is destiny and maybe it is not. I believe in destiny, and not many people do...

...N my opinion a fan is divided in three categories: - part time fans, die hard fans and optimistic fan. Let me explain this concept using a soccer match. A part time fan is one who does not have any particular team as his favorite, but he just enjoys watching the game as he is more overwhelmed by the sport than the players. Part time fans could also be people who follow a sport they like based on their availability. In the sense they follow a team or a sport based on their availability and convenience and don’t necessarily go to the stadium to watch their team play. Also, they might watch soccer if there’s nothing else that is interesting being played on television. Die-hard fans are like patriots and they patronize associating with a team. They believe their loyalties lie in speaking only good about a team and they would go against any person who badmouths a team they support. These die hard fans wear the sports jerseys of their favorite teams, make time to watch their favorite match at any cost, even if it means watching the match at late night and odd hours. A die-hard fan feels like the world is over when he sees his team loosing or not performing well. A die-hard fan is aggressive about the reputation of his team and can go to great lengths to support and defend the team he likes gravely. An optimistic fan is one who always speaks well about his team, even the team is not performing at it best capacity, he still has faith and hope in the team players....

Wire Extraction

...Introduction Wire drawing is the process by which a metal rod is forced through a series of varying cross section die(s) and hence the metal rod cross sectional area is varied so as to obtain the desired shape and size. In Kenwest cables company their are 3 wire drawing machines namely:- 1. M55 2. H20 3. M85 1.M55 This is the main copper drawing machine and the one which can handle the 1st drawing process which is hard drawing. The raw material used is usually copper rod of 7.9mm thickness as the hard drawing material. The M55 can also handle further copper drawing like the H20. Operation procedure The M55 has several units namely:- a) stand b) block c) drawing basin d) annealer e) spooler a) stand It is responsible in guiding the copper rod being fed to the block or drawing basin. If its hard drawing its fed to the block but when its further drawing its directly fed into the drawing basin. This is because at the block section the die obtained may have a larger diameter than the copper rod in the case of further drawing hence the block is not required. b) Block It is functional when hard drawing takes place. The 1st die is usually located in this section (the block section) hence drawing process begins at the block section. The copper rod being fed is usually about 7.9mm in diameter which is the diameter of the hard drawing copper. Animal fat is used in this section which acts as a lubricant to ease the process of the copper rod passing through the die....

...This month a British member of Parliament, Louise Mensch, resigned, saying it was too hard to juggle job and family. Yet the news is not all grim. In July Yahoo!, a struggling internet firm, picked a 37-year-old from Google, Marissa Mayer, who is expecting a baby in October, as its new boss. ------------------------------------------------- America’s biggest companies hire women to fill just over half of entry-level professional jobs. But those women fail to advance proportionally: they occupy only 28% of senior managerial posts, 14% of seats on executive committees and just 3% of chief-executive roles, according to McKinsey & Company, a consultancy. The figures are worse still at big European firms, which is perhaps why the governments of Belgium, France, Italy and Norway have set quotas for women on boards. The European Commission is threatening to impose such rules across...

...Death will come as a surprise to most, which makes it hard to deal with. But for some, people will know when they are going to die which will make it easier to handle because they can say their goodbyes to everyone before the person who is going to die takes their final breathe of life. Death is going to be hard for me to comprehend with because I hate the fact that I am going to have to leave this life behind me. I live such a good life, and when it comes done to judgment time, I really want to get into heaven. I will look back on my life and hopefully be satisfied when I take that final breathe and keep my eyes open for the final time. I want to be able to do things that I have always wanted to do, like travel the world and make a family. I don't want to live a meaningless life that was no final answer in the end. That's why we die, because each one of our lives is going to have a final answer in the end that tells us why we were set on this earth in the first place. I do not want death to hurt because I don't believe that pain should be inflicted on any human being in the world. As long as death isn't painful for me I believe that it will be ok for me. I want to live a long life full of joy and then when it comes towards the end, say my goodbyes and have God take me away in a short painless death. Everyone has to die I understand...

Whale Rider

...‘Our ancestor wants to die.’ ‘ But why?’ ‘There is no place for it here in this world. The people who commanded it are no longer here.’ He paused. ‘When it dies, we die, I die.’ ‘No, Paka. And if it lives?’ ‘Then we live also.’ I plunged into the frigid waters with only one thought in my mind. I have to take action. If the ancient one dies, every single one of us will disappear. That’s what Paka said. I really don’t know what to think. I can’t bear the thought that my dear Paka and my family would cease to exist. I don’t even care about my own fate, as long as they are safe, I’ll be happy. Everything that has happened so far, the two hundred sacred whales dying has led to this, the very whale that our ancestor rode thousands of years ago has decided to wash up on our shores. This time, he has the intention of self-slaughter, which basically means it’s a sign that we humans are all going to die. Right now, nobody is even trying to do something about it. Every now and then, I had to take a deep breath because the waves were like dumpers, slamming me down to the sandy bottom. The lights from the beach were dazzling my eyes, making it hard to see, but I kept on going. My line of vision narrowed down to only the distance between the whale and myself. The whale was all I could see. He was so beautiful. The cold was unbearable. It felt like multiple daggers were piercing into my skin. I can do this. I continued to swim toward the whale despite the obstacles....

...It was when Danny Bond was 13 that he started talking about wanting to die. His parents tried to distract him from the idea but nothing worked. "All he wanted was the privilege to be given an injection that would kill him instantly in seconds, and I had to watch him die in days," his mom said. But it was the only way Danny could become the author of his own terrible destiny... (Vallely, P., 2014, February 16). Euthanasia, also known as doctor-assisted dying (suicide), and also termed mercy killing, basically means to take a deliberate action with the express intention of ending a life to relieve persistent unstoppable suffering. Euthanasia can be voluntary that is when the person requests to be killed, or involuntary in which the person will be killed by the decision of someone else and not his own request. Responding to cases like Danny Bond’s case, many countries like Belgium legalized the killing of a suffering child at any age if he requested it. But should children have the right to ask for their own deaths? Euthanasia is against the law in most of the countries all over the world. It is rarely legal in some countries and in this case it would be allowed for adults only. However, some countries, like Belgium, changed the case. Belgium is now on the cusp of becoming the first country ever to remove an age limit for the procedure thus allowing terminally ill children to choose to end their lives. Yet there were those in Belgium who argued against the decision....

...Crossing Life can be hard and difficult. Life is a challenge and it can be hard to be a dad and make your kids happy. As a parent you want do to everything for your children and be the best parent you possibly can. Every father or mother wants the perfect relationship to his or her children but it can be a challenge and go wrong even though it is in a good thought. Like we see in the short story “Crossing” by Mark Slouka, we see a dad that tries his hardest to make his little boy happy. He wants to do what his dad did for him to his son. He is so eager to be the perfect parent that it goes wrong. The narrator in ”Crossing” is a 3rd person narrator and you the story is told from the dad’s point of view. The dad is ”limited” because we don’t know the boy’s feelings but only the dad’s feelings. This makes us get sympathise with the dad and they boy. The boy because he is very small and then you get the dad’s point of view on the boy. The narrator’s effect on the story makes us feeling like we are being drawn in to the story, we follows him, and get sympathise with the little boy and the dad. The narrator relationship is important so we can understand the text. The dad is thinking a lot about the trips he took with his own father when he was a little boy. It was a tradition to go to these trips so therefore he takes his son with him. But he also thinks about how hard it was to succeed the trip with his dad so it is a kind of ritual. It is the rite of passage....

Euthanasia – Dying Peacefully and with Dignity

...Euthanasia – dying peacefully and with dignity KEVORKIAN (to Wantz): ''Have you gotten any better?'' WANTZ: ''It's gotten much worse. I wish I could have done it a year ago or two years ago. ... I tried loading a gun, but I didn't know how to load one. If you do it yourself, you don't know what you're doing.'' KEVORKIAN: ''Were you tired or apprehensive when you tried it yourself?'' WANTZ: ''No. People say, 'Hang in there. ... ' (But) when you're in my shoes, then you tell me what to do. Until you are, don't tell me what to do.'' (Castaneda) The foregoing conversation took place and was recorded on October 22, 1991, between Doctor Jack Kevorkian, 63, (later nicknamed as “Dr. Death” due to his notorious physician-assisted suicide practice) and Marjorie Wantz, 58, who had sought his help in ending her life and continuous pain from the incurable disease she had. Wantz fulfilled her wish on the next day when she died while being linked to one of Kevorkian’s ''suicide machines''. This incident once again raised a heated debate whether euthanasia should be legalized, and whether doctors assisting in patient’s voluntary death should be freed of charges. In 1995 Special Senate Committee on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide defined euthanasia as “the deliberate act undertaken by one person with the intention of ending the life of another person in order to relieve that person’s suffering” (Law and Government Division). Despite the undeniable advantages of modern medicine in terms...
