DIE HARD 4 REACTION

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”.

Why Die?

...Cooley Engl 101-10 12 October 2012 Why Die First? How many times have you watched a horror movie and laughed at the first person who dies simply because they did something stupid? As a self-proclaimed horror movie aficionado, I too have pondered upon this. As such, I am here to give you a few pointers and a sort of checklist of things to avoid so that you can protect yourself if you ever manage to be cast as an extra in a horror movie. Hopefully these pointers will help you to stay on screen longer and maybe even get noticed. As crazy as this may sound, the first step to avoid being the first to die in a horror movie would be to read the script. If you are reading for a specific part and you realize during your perusal of the screenplay that your character is the first to die, ask for a different part. While reading, pay close attention to the names given the characters. If the name of your character looks something like “man #1 or woman #1”, there is a high probability that you will die within the first five minutes of the movie. After successfully landing an acting job in a horror movie, you will likely have a few rehearsal sessions. While you are doing rehearsals and practicing your lines, make friends with the largest, slowest person who is not playing the killer. The primary reason for this is simple. Any scene where someone is going to die you are almost assured of being able to outrun this person and they will likely die before you. So now it is time for......

The Right to Die

...The Right To Die Whenever an animal is suffering, do you let it sit there in agony as each day passes? No. You take it to a vet and give it a shot to put it to sleep. Why would you let an animal endure such pain when you know you can end it easily and painlessly? What if you were that animal? What if you were in so much pain and you wanted that chance to get rid of it all? Wouldn't you want someone to help you and give you that life-changing shot? This can be referred to physician assisted suicide. Physician assisted suicide is when a physician gives a person who is terminally ill a lethal injection to hasten their death by consent of the patient. To many people, this is thought of as morally wrong. Life is beautiful and precious and you should never end it, but to those who can't even control their bodily functions anymore, there is no more life. To those who are terminally ill, to those patients who can no longer live on their own and who suffer every day, what is life to them? Life to them is waking up every morning in pain, taking medicine that is only going to help them temporarily, and watching their family members mourn at their sickness. Would you want to live that life? In this aspect, animals are treated so much better than people. It is alright to put an animal to sleep, but it isn't right to let a patient rest in peace? The main reason why patients ask for physician assisted suicide is to end the torture and the pain of their disease. Why wouldn't you want to...

A Demand to Die

...In the case “A Demand to Die”, Donald C was a discharged pilot, he and his father gone through an explosion and his father passed away on the way to the hospital. He survived but was in a really bad physical condition—he sustained third-degree burns for most of his body, lost his vision, hearing and both of his hands. During the following several months of therapy, the treatments, including surgeries on his hands, eyes, and daily chlorinated baths, brought him unbearable physical suffering, and the death of his father and his body condition also gave him a bad mentally pressure. Eventually, he begged his doctor to stop treatment and let him die, nonetheless, his doctor refused his requests, no matter how hard he begged. He tried suicide on several occasions, but was all found out and prevented. According to the Principle of Respect for Autonomy, “one must respect the voluntary decision of competent person especially when those decision bear on that person’s own vital interests”, the health care givers should respect to Donald’s decision of ending the treatments instead of regarding his demand. Since Donald is a competent person, and he is in a very painful condition, his demand of die should not be ignored. Continuing of the treatment may only deepen his pain and add heavier burden on him, he would develop into irrational depress because of the blind and the fear of all the unknowns. Simultaneously, the Principle of Beneficence tells us that, “one must do the best......

The Right to Die

...The Right to Die December 23, 2012 The Right to Die Imagine for a minute this scenario: For the last 3 years your Mother’s health has been deteriorating from an incurable disease. She has been in and out of the hospital with no improvement and is now unable to eat, has lost all control of bodily functions, depressed and continually yells out in agony from the pain she is in. She begs you to help her, that she cannot endure this excruciating pain and miserable life any longer. The doctors tell you there is nothing else they can do for her at this time, that you should keep her comfortable and enjoy her while she is here. How would you feel, what would you do? Euthanasia by definition means the act or practice of killing hopelessly sick or injured individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy (Merriam-Webster, n.d.). Many people are not familiar with this word, but are familiar with the name Dr. Kevorkian, the doctor who helped terminally ill people end their lives. He believed anti-euthanasia was pro- torture. He was reported as saying “I’m trying to knock the medical profession into accepting its responsibilities, and those responsibilities include assisting their patients with death.” (Schneider, Keith, 2011). He was sentenced to over 60 years for...

A Request to Die

...A Request to Die PHI200: Mind and Machine (GSI1116I) April 25, 2011 A Request to Die Susan M. Wolf (2008) wrote a very touching article (p.23-26) regarding the pain and suffering her father endured during his final days of battling with several sicknesses. Not only did she have to see her father in pain and getting weaker and weaker, she now had to deal with him verbally expressing the desire to let him die. The love she felt for her father was so strong that she wanted to grant him this final wish, but also wanted to ensure he would not suffer from this and be as comfortable as possible. Due to his health rapidly deteriorating and he was in more pain every day, she began to seek assistance from the many hospitals he sought care in to help end her father’s suffering. This will be a brief discussion of the issue of ethics regarding physician-assisted suicide, her final consensus to this matter being interpreted as a deontological view verses my own view being the utilitarian view. I would also like to state that I do agree with Susan Wolf’s attempts to locate hospital officials to try and let her father die as he wished, but I do not agree with her final decision that she is still against legalizing physician-assisted suicides. Susan M. Wolf did extensive research on the subject of physician-assisted suicides and her stance of being against the legalizing of it is very clear. While going through her own personal tragedy with her dying father, she was forced to......

Right to Die

...to life," then it logically follows that every human being has a right to end their life (or a "right to die"). Because death is a part of life, a person's right to life logically assumes a right to not have that life. Thus, any law upholding a person's right to life has inherent within that same law a person's right to die, otherwise it would not be a right to life in the true sense of the term. But there is a legal battle going on in America right now over whether or not a person has a right to die. Does the government have the right to prolong your life by artificial means whether you desire it or not? With the passing of this law nationwide, you, as the voter will simply be saying, “It is YOUR choice” (Patashnik, 2004) The issue of “Having a Personal Right to Die,” has been long simmered beneath the surface in legal and political circles: under what circumstances do terminally injured and ill Americans have the right to choose to die? The Supreme Court made a definitive statement in the landmark 1990 case Cruzan v. Director, Missouri Dept. of Health that severely injured patients have a constitutional right to refuse medical treatment and die. But the court also ruled that states can require "clear and convincing" evidence of a patient's intent to forgo medical treatment, a rather high evidentiary standard to meet. History The actual word for “having a right to die” is Euthanasia. According to Dictionary.com, euthanasia is defined as the practice of intentionally......

Right to Die

...Worldview Position “THE RIGHT TO DIE” PLAW 235 Will, Trust, & Estates December 9, 2013 Katelyn J. Cash We are all going to come of an age where we face our own mortality. For many this is very scary, and often avoid planning and preparing for their impending death. Everyone has their own views, opinions and preferences as to how they wish their impending death to be handled. There are a variety of legal documents one can execute to assist medical professionals and family in carrying out ones wishes. However, many do not want life prolonging measures utilized at their time of death. A life prolonging procedure is a treatment, procedure, or intervention that uses mechanical or artificial means to restore, sustain, or replace a bodily function that without the person’s life would cease. Susan Herskowitz, Wills, Trusts, and Estate Administration 146 (4th e.d. 2014) This becomes an issue of controversy as many view making these kinds of designations and choosing how you want your life ending time to occur. So many ask do we have a right to die. Should we be allowed to choose our life ending measures? Some would argue no, one does not have the right to choose their life ending measures, while others argue yes, you should as it is your life, and you are the keeper of it. Where this become an issue is when you are facing death, often times you aren’t able to make such decisions, therefore, they are left to that of family and medical professionals.

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. Mctiernan has used all kinds of shots to make sure that his movie looks realistic......

She isn’t using his surname. McLane asked to pick up one of hackers being sought for possible FBI breach.

The Right to Die

...ENC 1102C June 20, 2011 The Right to Die: Physician-Assisted Suicide In cases such as the Death before Dignity Act, lawmakers and citizens are trying to legalize what some would call physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia. Physician-assisted suicide is when a physician provides the means of death for a gravely ill patient but the patient takes the final step ( Dictionary.com, LLC ). According to Dictionary.com, euthanasia is the act of putting to death painlessly or allowing to die as by withholding extreme medical measures, a person or animal suffering from an incurable, especially painful disease or condition. In most cases, the physician would recommend to the family or the patient would ask for him/herself but you have many instances where the physician hastens or rushes the patient to make the decision (Henry). The issue at hand though, is why a person can’t have control over their life and determine when it shall end. If one is mentally competent and have a terminal illness, meaning they have six months or less to live, why can’t one end their life? If all they’re doing is lying in a hospital bed receiving palliative care, eating pills like candy just to try to ease the pain, why can’t one say “okay, enough is enough?” Place yourself in their shoes, imagine if you were diagnosed with lung cancer that metastasized to your brain, or if you no longer had HIV but AIDS, would you want to live through that pain or would you rather ease it all by ending your life? ......
