Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. Formed in 1996, the band rose to international fame with their debut album Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 and multi-platinum in several other countries.[1] Their following studio album Meteora, continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200 album chart in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world.[2] In 2003, MTV2 named Linkin Park the sixth-greatest band of the music video era and the third-best of the new millennium.[3] Billboard ranked Linkin Park No. 19 on the Best Artists of the Decade chart.[4] The band was recently voted as the greatest artist of '00s in a Bracket Madness poll on VH1.[5]
Having adapted nu metal and rap metal to a radio-friendly yet densely layered style in Hybrid Theory and Meteora,[6][7][8] the band explored other genres in their next studio album Minutes to Midnight (2007).[9][10] The album topped the Billboard charts and had the third-best debut week of any album that year.[11][12] The band continued to explore a wider variation of musical types in their fourth album A Thousand Suns (2010), layering their music with more electronic sounds and beats. Their most recent work Living Things (2012) combines musical elements from all of their previous records. The band has collaborated with several other artists, most notably with rapper Jay-Z in their mashup EP Collision Course, and many others on Reanimation.[7] Linkin Park has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and has won two Grammy Awards.[13][14][15]

...Chad Whitehouse Candidate Number: 4138 MS2 Report RSA Academy Arrow Vale Report My task was to create a storyboard and a CD cover as well as insert. In order to accomplish this I had to research a range of music videos and CD covers that would relate to my genre of music. The genre that I have picked is alternative rock as I am most familiar with this genre of music and could express myself the most for this since I have an abundance of knowledge about this specific genre. Whilst conducting my research, I looked at several contemporary bands such as: Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, 30 seconds to Mars as well as other older bands such as Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Nirvana. Bands are very conventional in this genre meaning I too would be creating a fictional band- not many solo artists are seen within this genre, with the exception of Suzanne Vega, Lorde etc. With all this information I have decided to opt for a fictional band as it would be more conventional as well as please the fans of the genre more since they persist on listening to bands compared to individual artists. During my research I had discovered that the age demographic for my genre of music is 16-25 year olds. Just from this piece of information I can tell that most of the people who listen to this genre of music are in further education or had just started university- I can then tell that the type of music would be party related as this age group is stereotyped for partying during this social part of......

...Three innovative ideas that would improve the area where I live are better jobs, more children after school activities, and parks. In my community there are not as many jobs that are available for many people. This has because many people to struggle with the cost of living. This is due to the low income that is being paid to employees. For example, there are several restaurants that are available in my area, which is the only jobs that will hire people with no experience. Their pay is not much but with the low income that is being paid and the high cost of living, it is not the best job to make ends meet. There are not many after school activities for children where I live today. If there was more after school activities, it will give provide more advantages of children learning, staying out of trouble, and experiencing more out of life. Parks are great to have in the community because this gives families more places that are fun for their children and provides places for many sports activities. Where I live we have 2 parks that are available and one of them is not fill with playgrounds for children and fields where many boys have the opportunity of playing baseball, basketball, and other sports that they love.

Representations of Etnicity in Media

...Using your own detailed examples explore representations of ethnicity in the media today. There are many representations of ethnicity is the media however they all seem to be very limited if not overlooked completely. Many of these tend to be as token gestures or stereotypical to fit with the dominant ideology. To explore this further I will be primarily looking at the representation of Gypsies in My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, a TV programme produced by Jenny Popplewell shown on Channel 4. I will also comment on other representations of gypsies in the media such as those in Snatch and The Traveller Times Online. In the media, gypsies are portrayed in a negative light. Every single media product stereotypes them as dirty, tramps and thieves. We see this everywhere, in magazines, films, TV programmes and Documentaries. A good example is the article titled ‘Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves?’ it varies in different words that are linked with negativity throughout the whole article. While including examples from Snatch, the article says ‘Messages of gypsies in Snatch are deeply negative, putting us, the audience in a superior position’. This clearly shows the negativity of them in the media. Only 300,000 gypsies and travellers live in Britain. Only small part of them are in TV programmes and other forms of media therefore the representation is disproportionate to their population. Not all Irish Travellers are dirty or thieves. My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is clearly produced purely for......

Community projects such as this can be successful when elected officials come together with residents. Collaboration amongst various team members has proven to be an effective tool when utilized to accomplish common goals that may not have been achievable on their own (Swindell & Hilvert, 2014). When different partners come together it is important to ensure that all team players are on the same page. There are seven characteristics that can influence the success in achieving goals in a community project; assessing funds available, contract......

Community Profile Ehics

...Community Profile Presentation ETH/316 Introduction Factors such as the physical environment, social communication, diversity, population, technology, social inequality, and social efforts are what ultimately lead to change within communities. They can determine how stable communities are, potential growth, and accomplishments that communities have succeeded in. Each community has its own profile, and within each community all people have social roles in which they play. Roles are significant components within a community, and they contribute to stability by enabling its members to interact and build relationships on different levels throughout the community. Diversity within population amongst a community is what also helps a community to thrive and surface new ideas, which is beneficial to a community. People in a community that bring about change can be a friend, employee, student, or anyone; there is no one specific person who can build a community by his/her self; it is community efforts. This presentation will discuss the profile of a place called Sims City, and all about this little city that makes it worth living in its community. This is a diverse community of different ethnicities with different religious beliefs.

Comments on narration: • Normally chronological (though sometimes uses flashbacks) • A sequential presentation of the events that add up to a story. • A narrative differs from a mere listing of events. Narration usually contains characters, a setting, a conflict, and a resolution. Time and place and person are normally established. In this paragraph, the "story" components are: a protagonist (Hanson), a setting (the park), a goal (to camp), an obstacle (nature), a climax (his panic), and a resolution (leaving). • Specific details always help a story, but so does interpretive language.

Busse Case

...In the case of F.J. Busse vs. Department of General Services, Busse was contracted by the General State Authority to build a fountain in Point State Park. When the area was nearly excavated, Hurricane Agnes deposited 6 inches of dirt onto the site. Busse submitted a change order for $85,000, but the General State Authority only granted Busse an extension of time. The GSA said that any funds recovered from federal reimbursement would be paid to Busse, but no funds were ever recovered. The court ruled that Busse was responsible for the cost of the dirt removal from the job site under the terms of the contract. The court said that even though neither party was responsible for the loss, the party who agreed to take the loss must be responsible for it. In this case, the court decided that Busse agreed to take this loss. In the contract, the provisions are quite vague with Busse agreeing to take the loss from “any other hazard”. The court used this to say that damage from a hurricane could be included under this. The court also ruled that the damage to the job site did not make fulfilling the terms of the contract impossible, but just more expensive. In this case, it does not seem that the court deemed the cost of the cleanup to be impractical, or much more costly than anticipated. I do not agree with the findings of this court. While the contract did leave Busse liable for a multitude of possible damages, I do not believe than a severe act of God like a hurricane should be......

Hi There Baby

...the Six Flags picnic area so we had to wear the wristbands to get into the picnic. We left my grandparent’s house and continued driving. When we got to a bridge that is close to Six Flags my dad said, “Everyone look your windows and across the lake!” We all looked out our windows and saw a huge roller coaster across the lake. I couldn’t wait because we were almost at Six Flags. In about 10 minutes we arrived at the Six Flags parking lot. We parked and then waited at the tram station. When the tram arrived at the tram station we got on and it brought us to a staircase that was painted to look like a giant pile of M&Ms. We climbed the stairs and waited in a big line to get in the park. We gave them our tickets and went through a metal detector then we entered the park. As we walked around the park we got to the DC super heroes area. My dad looked up and said, “Mathieu, you should go on this roller coaster with me.” I looked up and saw the huge 208 foot drop of Bizarro. “OK”, I said because I had never been on a roller coaster but I would soon learn my lesson. My dad and I waited in line for about a half an hour. While we waited in line I was so nervous. When we got to the car of Bizarro we got in. My dad couldn’t ride with me because the buckle didn’t fit him because he was too fat. “Are you sure you want to go on alone?”, My dad asked me. “Yes.”, I said.

Discussion Questions

...Discussion Question A- ( Answer In IRAC Format) A new religious group has formed in the city of Boulder that worships mountain peaks. The members of this group believe that the way to spiritual fulfillment is to live in public parks, worship the nearby mountains, and sell jewelry that the members make from rocks and trees found in the park. The city has forced the members to leave the parks at night due to an ordinance prohibiting overnight camping in the parks. The city has also ordered the members to stop advertising and selling their jewelry in the park to comply with a park rule prohibiting the placement of signs in the park by private individuals. The signs read, “Buy the most sacred jewelry around. It’s also beautiful and reasonable priced. Profits help further the worship of the mountains.” In protest, the members also made T shirts which say, “Replace the members of the city council! They are unholy and incompetent!” The city passed a resolution prohibiting persons from criticizing city officials in the city parks. The members of the group challenge the constitutionality of the city’s actions under equal protections, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. Discuss the arguments each side would raise under each of the challenged actions of the city.
