Chappelle Show

...get their ass beat to a soundtrack. --Dave Chappelle Although this comment is humorous and socially clever, Chappelle’s joke says more about American culture, specifically racial and class issues, than most academics can hope to explain. As James Lipton suggests in his interview with Dave Chappelle on the talk show Inside the Actor’s Studio, black comedy has been an important form of art for learning about the black condition. Comedians, such as Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, and Eddie Murphy are just a few of the black comedians that have used their art to provide those insights and induce change in society. The late Richard Pryor understood more so than others that in comedy he had “‘a unique vehicle’ at his disposal that he would be wise to employ for ‘meaningful expression’” and his declared successor, Dave Chappelle, did as well (Simpson 114). The influence of Chappelle and Pryor’s comedy on the American audience has been a highly researched topic. The influence of the most recent and still dominant figure, Chappelle, has yet to be entirely seen, as many of his performances are hardly a decade old. It is undisputed among scholars and critics, however, that, like Pryor, Chappelle through his art “has made us look at ourselves and laugh at ourselves,” stimulating an open discussion about a multitude of issues including race (Lipton). Therefore, through their comedic art, Richard Pryor and Dave Chappelle, whose backgrounds shape their comedy, offer......

Global Poverty Concert

...Electric guitars and staggering statistics shared a Central Park audience of more than 60,000 people on Saturday at the Global Citizen Festival, a five-hour concert held on Central Park’s Great Lawn devoted to ending extreme poverty worldwide. The music line-up—which included Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Band of Horses, The Black Keys, The Foo Fighters, K’Naan and surprise guest John Legend—performed free-of-charge to the public to highlight issues of hunger, poverty, polio and malaria. But while the simulcasted event’s intention was to increase awareness of worldwide social inequity, the overall message of altruism fell flat. Two hours before the concert’s start time, the attendees flooded the Great Lawn. Petition holders representing UNICEF, Half the Sky, The End of Polio and Charity Water descended upon the crowd to collect signatures to encourage future involvement in their respective charitable causes. Surprisingly, the charity volunteers were not well received by the music lovers. Many attendees walked away, or, responded with “leave me alone” before the volunteers could utter a word. The apathy, and the resulting cold responses, lasted from the time of admission to when the opening band stepped foot on the stage. It is odd that attendees shrugged their shoulders at the ambassadors; yet, they lit up when the musicians advocating for the same charities began performing, especially given the timely message. The concert was scheduled around the meeting of the......

Kfc Introduction

...Bell chains. KFC was founded by Harland Sanders, an entrepreneur who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression. Sanders identified the potential of the restaurant franchising concept, and the first "Kentucky Fried Chicken" franchise opened in Utah in 1952. KFC popularized chicken in the fast food industry, diversifying the market by challenging the established dominance of the hamburger. By branding himself as "Colonel Sanders," Harland became a prominent figure of American cultural history, and his image remains widely used in KFC advertising. However, the company's rapid expansion saw it overwhelm the ageing Sanders, and in 1964 he sold the company to a group of investors led by John Y. Brown, Jr.and Jack C. Massey. KFC was one of the first fast food chains to expand internationally, opening outlets in the United Kingdom, Mexico, and Jamaica by the mid-1960s. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, KFC experienced mixed fortunes domestically, as it went through a series of changes in corporate ownership with little or no experience in the restaurant business. In the early 1970s, KFC was sold to the spirits distributor Heublein, who were taken over by the R.J. Reynolds food and tobacco conglomerate, who sold the chain to PepsiCo. The chain continued to expand overseas however, and in 1987 KFC became the first Western restaurant...

Policy Analysis 1

...Legislature known as Senate Bill 865. The city of Detroit is facing a fiscal crisis. Threats of budget cutting have become reality. Mayor Dave Bing and Governor Rick Snyder are arguing policy change in hopes to revamp the city of Detroit. In addition, Snyder wants to implement Public Act 4, the emergency manager enabling legislation that will place an emergency manager with a “Receivership Transition Advisory Board (RTAB) in charge of the city in hopes to get Detroit back on track. The argument between Michigan’s State and Local government continues to be an issue. Mayor Dave Bing in efforts to save the “Murder Capital” of the United States decided to cut the city’s budget by laying-off 108 police officers planned to take place in mid-June. The officers this will affect are the newest hired. Furthermore, the City of Detroit spends more money on police than all of the 10 safest American cities similar in size. According to Detroit Police Department (DPD) statistics, crime is up 2.25% compared to 2011. Agency (2012), “There have been 93 homicides in Detroit, as of April 8, only three fewer than last year this time and 10 more than in 2010” (para. 2). Statistics like this have many questioning the layoffs of police officers, especially when it is known that more visible police in the city deters crime. Back in November 2011 Mayor Dave Bing stated that public safety in the city the most important service that the city provides. However, even after a 10% pay cut......

On Combat

...On Combat: Grossman and Christensen Self development is one of the critical variables in the four domains of Army Leadership Development. In an effort to help expand the contexts related to self development, Grossman and Christensen’s On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and Peace, add strong information to self development that would be useful to all military and police personnel. Picking up where his earlier work, On Killing, left off, Grossman and Christensen examine all facets of deadly combat including preparation/training, the actual moment of conflict and even debriefing at the conclusion of combat. The self development advocated by the authors establishes the true context of being a warrior, which they define as the 1% who protects the 98% from the remaining 1% who would do them harm (Grossman & Christensen 12). Though the work is not infallible, it examines subject matter that many psychologists have traditionally avoided. In addition, it combines psychology and physiology to extend beyond simply combat training and into the realms of healing after combat has occurred. The book is critically divided into four sections: The Physiology of Combat, Perceptual Distortion, Mental Attitude and Aftermath. Each of the four dimensions offer elements of self development that are useful to the reader. The first sections explains to the reader exactly what occurs physically during combat. As the author’s demonstrate, the will to kill another human...

The Masked Masked Heroes

...Krystal Gladden Professor deLauney ENG 102 05/10/16 The Masked Mask Heroes A costume is meant to mask the true identity of a hero"(2009). But what if the mask is their true identity. In the graphic novel "Watchmen" by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, Moore and Gibbons show how that a few of the vigilantes have a problem with juggling their masked persona and their every day persona. We can see a constant tug of war between who the vigilantes truly see themselves as and what is accepted in their society. We see the pull or hold that each vigilante masked persona has on them on a daily. So, we constantly see how Rorschach and Dan are battling within themselves about who they truly are. Rorschach is one of the first masked heroes we get to meet. We meet Rorschach after the death of another masked hero Edward Blake aka The Comedian. We go throughout most of the graphic novel without knowing the identity of Rorschach or his "real name". We quickly learn that Rorschach is a very black or white type of person, there is no in between with this guy. Rorschach is unapologetic too; he doesn't go by what society sees as bad or good, but off of his own judgment of right or wrong. He is also the only masked hero still fighting crime even though the Keene Act made it illegal to do so. It is not until the end of chapter 5, we get to actually see the human face behind the mask. Rorschach happens to be "The End Is Nigh" guy from earlier chapters, whom "real" name is Walter Joseph Kovacs. We......

...Zeitoun Many immigrants from all over the world move to the United States inspired by the American Dream. They are looking for the American Dream of freedom, and opportunity. Zeitoun, by Dave Eggers, is a book that illustrates one man’s faith when faced with a disaster. This book tells the story about Syrian- American, Abdulrahman Zeitoun, who lived with his family in New Orleans when the city was hit by hurricane Katrina that literally destroyed the city and changed it forever. Zeitoun is a religious Muslim who strongly believes in a God. He came from Syria, a country with a reputation of stubborn people. He believes that everything happens for a reason, and feels a duty to serve his God and live out of his purpose. All his actions in the book are a result of his religion because for him Muslim is more than just rituals; it is a way to live life. There are many aspects of humanity that come out in this novel. For me, I see the beauty and the pain of life painfully apparent here. I cannot determine what I think of Zeitoun because of the multiple personalities I see here. I believe deep down, he is a good but also a very broken man. He obviously means very much to his family, both his wife and children and also his family back in Syria. He stayed back in chaos and tried to save a lost town. If that does not speak for his character, I do not know what does. Then again, after the pages closed, he did the unimaginable and tried to murder his wife and then tried to get......

Now the frontman of the Foo Fighters, Grohl’s riveting musical philosophy and history has led him to be the charismatic and fun loving person he is today. Dave Grohl is an inspiration all over the world, sharing his passion for music and his outlook on life with those who appreciate and admire him. His success has shaped the character of the man he is today. At the age of 15, Grohl dropped out of high school to play drums in his adolescent band “Scream.” In 1990, after the band split, Grohl traveled to Seattle in hopes of becoming Nirvana’s new drummer, joining the band members Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic. “All I really had was a suitcase and my drums. So I took them up to Seattle and hoped it would work,” Dave said describing his leap of faith into the music industry. Later that year, Grohl was accepted into the band and moved in with Cobain—he stayed there years after the band’s success. In 1994, Cobain, victim of fame and drugs, committed suicide. With the loss of a best friend and band member, Grohl was left confused and lonely with such a sudden pull from the world of music. Following Cobain’s death, Grohl appeared lost for words.

The Bee

...KFC History - Colonel Sanders Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of the original Kentucky Fried Chicken, was born on September 9, 1890. When he was six, his father died and his mother was forced to go to work while young Sanders took care of his three year old brother and baby sister. This meant he had to do much of the family cooking. By the time he was seven, Harland Sanders was a master of a range of regional dishes. After a series of jobs, in the mid 1930s at the age of forty, Colonel Sanders bought a service station, motel and cafe at Corbin, a town in Kentucky about 25 miles from the Tennessee border. He began serving meals to travellers on the dining table in the living quarters of his service station because he did not have a restaurant. It is here that Sanders began experimenting with different seasonings to flavour his chicken which travellers loved and for which he soon became famous. He then moved across the street to a motel and restaurant, which seated 142 people. During the next nine years he developed his secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices and the basic cooking technique which is still used today. Sander's fame grew. Governor Ruby Laffoon made him a Kentucky Colonel in 1935 in recognition of his contributions to the state's cuisine. And in 1939, his establishment was first listed in Duncan Hines' "Adventures in Good Eating". A new interstate highway carried traffic past the town, which soon had a devastating affect on his business. He sold up...

Watchmen and Audley Proposal Essay

...Mengfan Chen Neale Barnholden ENGL 121 A13 September 23rd, 2014wee Watchmen and Lady Audley’s Secret Both works of the “Watchmen” and “Lady Audley’s Secret” consist of fiction tales that mirror themes of ideology and class, and the accompanying tension. Moreover, in each of the works there is some local events and issues that seem to have a close connection with the time of release and the contents of these two works. Specifically, in the former work there were the underlying events of an increase in the urbanization of Britain. This was accompanied by a greater accumulation of wealth by part of the population, and this led to the formation of classes, so many people increased in their rank in society. Furthermore, the swelling of the population also meant that there was a shift from the small village of the past where the locals could be well acquainted with everyone, and all their daily affairs or unusual controversies. The shift from Lady Audley holding the traditional role of a house keeper who is completely innocent and harmless, to a violent and dangerous person going to lengths to conceal their identity evidences the extent of this shift. Similarly, in the circumstances of “Watchmen,” there is some underlying tension between the United States and Russia through what is known as the Cold War era. While there was suspicion between these two nations, and many accusations, this trend holds true as the characters place blame on one another,......

Sonic Highways Evaluation

...Vanessa Zsorey Dr. McCort College Comp 11 December 2015 Sonic Highways A band lasting as long as twenty years in the music industry with their original sound not suffering is a rarity. The Foo Fighters, led by the legendary Dave Grohl, are magnificent rockers who throughout two decades, continue to stay relevant in many ways. Throughout these twenty years they have released nine albums, each of which contained some of the biggest alternative rock hits of all time. Though they may not be riding the radio waves constantly or may only appeal to a shrinking audience, their craft has never once suffered. Their newest album, Sonic Highways, is pure proof that the Foo Fighters continuously try to push themselves out of their comfort zones in order to remain interesting to their fans. Sonic Highways was the most recent project the Foo Fighters have put out and the most creative of the past eight albums. The process to create this album was far more in depth and unique compared to the traditional methods. Typically, when a band decides they want to record, they find the closest studio that is in their price range and is the best quality necessary to fit the project. Mixing the recordings has gotten incredibly easy in recent times, where all that is really necessary is the ProTools program. With Protools, any errors can easily be cleaned and corrected, then moved on to the master CD and sent off to be pressed. A decade ago, recording and mixing were not nearly as simple or......
