The last Fast and Furious One of the greatest films of 2015 and one that you don’t want to miss is Furious 7. Since 2001 The Fast and the Furious movies have caught the attention of billions of viewers all around the world, especially Furious 7 directed by James Wan. It will have you on the edge of your seat and you won’t want to blink! It is a film about family and how this group of friends have come a long way living their lives in the fast lane trying to keep each other alive as they embarked in new missions every movie. As Dominic Toretto states, “I don't have friends. I got family.” They began to see each other as family ever since Fast Five and now they continue their journey together to fight a man that is after them for revenge. According to Matt Singer “This is a lot of revenge for one movie to contain, and that’s before Dom and the rest of his crew (which also includes computer expert Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and comic relief Tyrese Gibson) hook up with a shadowy government operative named Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) and then start skydiving out of planes behind the wheel of their custom cars, a sport I guess we have to call “skydriving” (Singer 1). Everything in this film was great, from actions scenes from begging to end and more action all throughout the movie was insane. You wouldn’t believe the stunts they pulled off in this movie, you have to watch it to believe “skydriving.” David Blaustein states in his review “Not only are the "Furious 7" car chases and stunts more creative, they’re damn-near breathtaking” (Blaustein 1). I’m not an expert in movies, but David has a really good point that some of the scenes will take your breath away. Action is one of the key aspects of this movie. In particular, the scene when they all jump out of this military plane inside their cars. Even though I’m afraid of heights this scene made my blood rush so quick throughout my body, that I wanted to do it myself. What made it more exciting was the fact that they landed so perfect and sped up as they made contact with the asphalt. Another strength of this film was the fact that they used so many expensive cars to create this scenes, specifically the one were Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) tells Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), “Cars can’t fly Dom! Cars can’t fly!” and they fly out of the building into another building in a 3.2 million car. Maybe an impossible thing to do, but they sure made it seem possible. They didn’t jump just one of the Etihad towers in Abu Dhabi but two of them Leading to them not jumping out of that second tower because there was no tower after that! To our surprise Brian O’ Conner (Paul Walker) and Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) do not die in this scene because they jump off the fast moving car before it makes its way off the edge of the building. The film was for the most part a great film full of excitement, but it had its flaws. Matt Singer points out this unfortunate flaw, “It’s impossible to watch these moments and not think about Paul Walker, who tragically died in a car crash in November 2013 before production had wrapped” (Singer 1). It was really hard to watch the movie without reminding my self that this saga would never ever be the same without Paul Walker. He was there throughout the whole movie, but he didn’t really speak much, except little lines here and there. He wasn’t as involved in the film as he was in the past films and that kind of made the movie suck a little. The character he played in the movie just mirrored who he really was in real life, and that is what made the Fast and Furious movies, one of the greatest films ever made. Paul Walker was a ghost in this movie and maybe it was for the best of the film to keep him with a muted part in the movie than without him at all. They are planning on making Furious 8, but will it eve be the same without Paul Walker? Even though the movie had one of the saddest flaws, the incredible cars made up for everything bad about the film. It didn’t surprise me that they would use a Lykan Hypersport to jump across buildings like if it was a toy. Only three Lykan Hypersport made valued at 3.2 million a piece and I got to see it as it flew beautifully from one sky scraper to the other. What made it even more exciting was the muscle cars also included in the film. The 1970 dodge charger R/T, pure American muscle, was in pretty good shape as it was driven by Dominic Toretto with 4X4 tires. You don’t see that often! Other expensive cars like the Bugatti Veyron and the Ferrari 458 Italia are some of the most expensive cars all around the world and they were used in this car movie of course! Aside from leaving me wishing I had all these cars in my garage, the characters played a key role in making this movie the best. Off and on the set they were all like family and their personalities fitted each character in the film perfectly. The fact that they all got along so well outside of the set made a great impact on the film. It was natural for them and all they could do was make this film one of the greatest films in history. There was no better way this movie could end, but with heart warming words from Dominic Toretto to Paul Walker. “I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that’s why we were brothers- because you did too. No matter where you are, whether it’s a quarter mile away or half way across the world, you’ll always be with me. And you’ll always be my brother.” Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) said in one of the last line of the film in tribute to Paul Walker. All the actors of the film were like family and seeing one of their brothers pass away, was hard for them. The film ended in the best way possible with Dominic Toretto and Paul Walker taking a last ride together. They drive their cars in this beautiful paradise and they get to a point were the road splits in two and each one takes their own path. As they embark into their separate paths, Whiz Khalifa sings the song “See you again.” I almost broke in to tears, but I had to keep my composure at the theater, especially cause my girlfriend was with me. Seeing one of the greatest actors in the industry pass away made me sad, but I wasn’t the only one in pain because the whole world felt the tremor. Paul Walker’s presence will always be felt in his films and if they continue on with the saga, I don’t think there will ever be anyone to replace him. Furious 7 is the last Fast and Furious for me!

Fast&Furious 6

...With Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, Universal decided that the Fast and Furious franchise needed a change. Instead of the characters audience members had been introduced to in The Fast and the Furious or 2 Fast 2 Furious, the film would focus on a new set of characters in Japan. They tapped Justin Lin for the responsibility of resetting the films. Little did they know that eight years later Justin would be tying up strings that he laid out in the series’ third entry that redirected what the Fast and Furious films could be. Fast and Furious 6 is in theaters today and brings together elements from every film in the series. It’s The Avengers of gear head movies. We caught up with Justin to talk about how he seeded plot points throughout the franchise, how he plans a fight sequence with his choreographer, and what he thinks looking back on 8 years of Fast and Furious films. —- Nerdist: How do you approach a film that calls for the level of insanity that you crammed into Fast and Furious 6? Justin Lin: For me, it has to come from the characters. A lot of people think we just go and create these action sequences, and it’s very hard for me to do that, because it feels very artificial. I think once I can kind of ground it and find a character reason in their arc of why they’re doing this, then I feel like I have the license to push it. The example, even in Fast 5, was this idea of Brian and Dom jumping off a cliff. I feel like once you are emotionally invested in these......

...A Review of Literature Related to Oil Spill Dispersants 1997-2008 for Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council (PWSRCAC) Anchorage, Alaska by Merv Fingas Spill Science Edmonton, Alberta PWSRCAC Contract Number - 955.08.03 Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this PWSRCAC-commissioned report are not necessarily those of PWSRCAC September, 2008 ii Abstract This report is a review of the literature on oil spill dispersants published from 1997 to August, 2008. The report identifies and focusses on recent advances in dispersant effectiveness, toxicity, and biodegradation. Other topics such as application, use, behaviour and fate are also covered. The prime motivation for using dispersants is to reduce the impact of oil on shorelines, thus the application must be successful and effectiveness high. As some oil would come ashore, discussion remains on what effectiveness is required to significantly reduce the shoreline impact. A major issue is the actual effectiveness during spills so that these values can be used in estimates for the future. The second motivation for using dispersants is to reduce the impact on birds and mammals on the water surface. The benefits of using dispersants to reduce impacts on wildlife still remain unknown. The third motivation for using dispersants is to promote the biodegradation of oil in the water column. The effect of dispersants on biodegradation is still a matter of dispute. Some papers state that dispersants......

Movie Review

...2 fast 2 furious Review 2 fast 2 furious is one of the best car street racing movies to watch. The Miami police department has been tracking down a drug lord, Carter Verone, but cannot find any evidence to arrest him. The department has Monica Fuentes, an undercover agent, as Verone’s girlfriend. They need street racers in order to capture Verone, so they arrest the main actor Brian O’ Connell at the end of a street race and take him to the department. At the department, they give him the breakdown about Verone and try to assign him a partner. He does not like the partner they try to give him, so he decides to pick his own, Roman Pearce. Their main job is to work undercover and arrest Verone so that their records will get cleared and they can walk away as free men. I like this movie because of the great acting performed by the main actors and the cars. 2 fast 2 furious has great acting. Paul Walker and Tyree Gibson do an excellent job playing the parts of Brian O’ Connell and Roman Pearce. Brian, a former cop, plays a good role as an undercover cop. Roman on the other hand, plays the role of a thug. He is tattooed and dresses with baggy clothes. He uses a lot of slang and likes to use the word “bruh” a lot, which is a slang term for brother. He is a thug because he had to spend three years in jail. He blaims Brian for that and when he first sees him in the movie he punches him in the face out of anger and they begin to fight. As the movie goes on, the hate that he has for...

...Yu 1 Yue Yu (Jasmine) Kat Gonso ENGW 1102 October 5, 2013 The audience of this review should be those people who like watching science fiction movie or fans of super heroes. My intended publication would be online blog, which is special prepared for sci-fi movies and TV shows, such as the blog Atomic Anxiety on website WordPress, and so on. Review of the Avengers: Numerous Figures but Distinct Characters Recently, a new TV series was released, called The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. As a loyal fan of science fiction movies and S.H.I.E.L.D, how can I miss these episodes! However, it is really a pity that there are only few episodes right now, I have to be patient to wait for the next story. And I am sure that most fans would be like me to wait for next episodes. So, in order to make waiting time more interesting, I would like to introduce a movie, which also happened in S.H.I.E.L.D, and fans would like it. It is called Avengers. Unlike normal agents using high technology to solve various troubles in TV series The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, super heroes in the movie Avengers uses their own abilities to protect their homeland. It is true that the TV series looks more like a reality, but I think superpower makes a science fiction movie more fantasy and mysterious. So, there is no doubt that when it first showed on screen, it received a warm welcome in a large amount of fans. The poster of the Avengers Yu 2 For me, the movie attract me most is that many of audiences’ familiar heroes......

...Order Code RS22814 February 21, 2008 FDA Fast Track and Priority Review Programs Susan Thaul Specialist in Drug Safety and Effectiveness Domestic Social Policy Division Summary By statutory requirements and by regulation, guidance, and practice, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) works with several overlapping yet distinct programs to get to market quickly new drug and biological products that address unmet needs. FDA most frequently uses three mechanisms for that purpose: Accelerated Approval, Fast Track, and Priority Review. The first two affect the development process before a sponsor submits a marketing application. Accelerated Approval allows surrogate endpoints in trials to demonstrate effectiveness and is relevant in fewer situations than the others. The Fast Track program encourages a sponsor to consult with FDA while developing a product. Unlike the others, Priority Review involves no discussions of study design or procedure; it relates only to an application’s place in the review queue. Analysis of total approval time for approved applications under the Fast Track and Priority Review programs shows that for seven of the past nine years, Fast Track products have shorter median approval times than do all those applications assigned to Priority Review. It takes an average of 15 years from the moment a manufacturer first approaches the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with an idea for a new drug to its final approval for marketing.1......

(Questions found on p743) Question 3: At one time, in order to demonstrate their alleged intellectual superiority, a number of teenagers broke into computer systems that guarded records of schools, government generally, and the military. What are the current potential criminal risks associated with hacking illegally into computer systems? For starters, all of the information that is compromised could be sold and used for illegal purposes such as identity theft. Also, if hackers were to hack into the computer systems that control our infrastructure they could possibly turn off or damage our power grids or if they were to hack into the systems that control air traffic control, they could crash airplanes and disrupt travel for millions of people. On a larger scale if hackers were to hack into nuclear power plants they could possibly cause a nuclear meltdown. (GORMAN, 2009) Question 4: Criminal law statutes now protect your name and identity, your communications, and your ideas. Match each of these categories with the appropriate criminal law statute and explain how each statute can be violated.
