1) Describe the three basic types of music heard in original scores during the silent film era and cites specific examples from The Birth of a Nation. (10 points)
There are three basic types of music heard in The Birth of a Nation. Each type serves it’s own purpose in the film. The first is adaptations of classical works. These adaptations are extended versions of the original classical piece of work. These adaptations are used for extensive action scenes. For example, Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyrie is the leitmotif for the Klu Klux Klan in the movie. The second type is arrangements of well-known melodies. These well-known melodies are used for emotional appeal. For example, “Dixie”, a very popular song of the South, is used to express Southern patriotism. Also, these well-known melodies were used to set a racist mood. A scene shows slaves dancing to “Turkey in the Straw”. Lastly, the third type is original music. The original music is used to reinforce the characters of the movie. For example, Elsie has a sweet, playful leitmotif. This theme implies her innocence. The original music in The Birth of a Nation is the strongest of the three types, composed by Joseph Carl Briel.

2) What is the role of source music in Casablanca? (10 points)
The role of source music in Casablanca is in the development of the character Rick. The source music used is mostly American popular music. All the popular songs used are barrowed. The only exception is “Knock on Wood,” which was created specially for this film. The beginning of the film starts with melodies that set the mood, location, and conflicts between France and Germany. “Knock on Wood” is used in Rick’s Cafe Americain with the character Ugarte, who plays a thief in the film. This tunes helps create the superficial ambiance of the Café. “As Time Goes By” is another tune that indicates a love theme between Rick and Ilsa. T

...Niyama: Tapas (Sanskrit) My description of tapas would be deep meditation and achieving self-realization. To be able to put your body at ease and have solitude with myself is the goal. Keeping my breathing regulated as well as keeping my mind from running around is the idea. While practicing yoga/while I am meditating, to practice Tapas I relax every part of my body and picture my self in a dark room. I think of everything that upset or bothered me that week, all my feelings being slowly released through my fingertips until I am at peace with my self. I am able to get my body to feel lighter and come out of my meditation in a better mood. Tapas has helped my life improve because with school, family, and sports I can become very stressed and tense. I used to not know how to relax how to take my mind of things. A few years back I began practicing yoga. Starting with a deep stretch and releasing endorphins then finishing up with deep breathing, closing my eyes and blacking everything out, I have been able to capture the essence of true relaxation. This has really helped me because till then, I had yet to find something that could work for me. I would try deep breaths but I felt that doing that just worked me up. Tapas has captured everything I enjoy about meditation. To be able to find solitude, come to conclusions with myself and have clarity in my thoughts. The steps I can now take towards embracing this principle in my life is that when I feel that I am beginning......

Starship Troopers

...Marco Jimenez 19 April 2015 Mus 468 sec: 02 Starship Troopers Basil Poledouris was hired to compose the scores for “Starship Troopers” because of his previous work on “Conan the Barbarian” and “Robocop”. During his time with the film of “Starship Troopers,” Poledouris’ music had to adapt to Verhoeven screen writing in able to fit properly because the director was seeking bombastic, rousing music that was wildly hyperactive which lacked centralized development, being said it was defined as “thrill of the moment” score. The music that Poledouris created for Starship Trooper was explosive with power and extremely heavy on the brass that is straight forward and in your face and pulls away. The beginning of the movie, the music that opens up is the Federation’s March, demonstrating a militaristic tone of using the drumline as a march. The trumpets enter for that good news that the good guys here, for high motivation then it slowly descends to a softer tone of the trumpets and violin describing a good manner of what the Federation has in store of heroes. Ending it with drumline of a demonstration of militarism. Also giving a nice introduction about propaganda. Klendathu Drop, the first battle of the War against the Arachnids which the Federation and daring hero Johnny Rico will set foot on Bugs Territory. As the soldiers embark in their cargo ships, the tone of the music gives you this anticipation of action and violence soon to happen. The instruments that began were......

Papers on Customer Loyalty in Cellular Services

...Energy, Infrastructure and Communications I n tandem with the pick-up in overall industrial growth, core industries and infrastructure services have also evinced signs of recovery with easing of supply bottlenecks in certain sectors and demand recovery in others. The robust growth momentum in telecommunications, particularly the wireless segment, continues with monthly additions exceeding 17.6 million connections. In the midst of the worstever slowdown in the history of world civil aviation, even the modest levels of growth in India are indicative of resilience. Core industries like power, coal and other infrastructure like ports and roads are also reviving. Available evidence points to a steady revival of flows of investible resources. However, the levels of broadband penetration, capacity creation in some crucial infrastructure sectors and the state of development of markets for longterm finance remain causes for concern. There is need to develop infrastructure to complement and sustain the economic growth momentum. Efforts—legislative, administrative and executive—are on to minimize the infrastructure deficit, ameliorate bottlenecks in completion of projects and nurture core industrial intermediates and infrastructure services. 10 CHAPTER 10.2 The stimulus measures announced by the national authorities worldwide to combat the economic slowdown contained infrastructure buildup plans. In line with the rest of the world, the Union Budget for 2009-10 substantially......

Bangladesh Garments Export

...Bangladesh garment exports boom despite disasters Published July 09, 2013 AFP * In this photograph taken on June 23, 2010, Bangladeshi women sew clothes in a garment factory in Ashulia. Output from Bangladesh's accident-prone garment sector has increased in June, with demand from foreign retailers still growing despite the country's factory disaster in April. (AFP/File) DHAKA (AFP) –  Output from Bangladesh's accident-prone garment sector increased in June, data showed Tuesday, with demand from foreign retailers still growing despite the country's factory disaster in April. At least 1,129 people were killed when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed outside the capital Dhaka in April, sparking demonstrations against Western brands and prompting some retailers to threaten to cancel orders. Government data released on Tuesday showed that the country's total exports -- 80 percent of which come from the garment sector -- soared by 16 percent year-on-year in June to $2.7 billion, following an increase of 15 percent in May. "The disasters didn't have much impact. They are scattered incidents," head of the government's Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) Shuvhashish Bose told AFP, referring to the Rana Plaza tragedy and other factory fires that have killed another 130 workers since November. Total exports from Bangladesh, the second-biggest clothing manufacturer in the world after China, grew by 11 percent to a record $27.02 billion in the 2012-13 financial year to June. ...

Sonunda, kendi oyunumu, bütün bu oyunların dışında ve gerçek olarak yaşamağa karar verdim.

Financial Statement Analysis

...solution SOLUTIONS TO EXERCISES AND CASES For FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS AND SECURITY VALUATION Stephen H. Penman Fifth Edition CHAPTER ONE Introduction to Investing and Valuation Concept Questions C1.1. Fundamental risk arises from the inherent risk in the business – from sales revenue falling or expenses rising unexpectedly, for example. Price risk is the risk of prices deviating from fundamental value. Prices are subject to fundamental risk, but can move away from fundamental value, irrespective of outcomes in the fundamentals. When an investor buys a stock, she takes on fundamental risk – the stock price could drop because the firm’s operations don’t meet expectations – but she also runs the (price) risk of buying a stock that is overpriced or selling a stock that is underpriced. Chapter 19 elaborates and Figure 19.5 (in Chapter 19) gives a display. C1.2. A beta technology measures the risk of an investment and the required return that the risk requires. The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) is a beta technology; is measures risk (beta) and the required return for the beta. An alpha technology involves techniques that identify mispriced stocks than can earn a return in excess of the required return (an alpha return). See Box 1.1. The appendix to Chapter 3 elaborates on beta technologies. C1.3. This statement is based on a statistical average from the historical data: The return on......
