Starwars and Gangsterism

...George Lucas managed to illuminate the world in 1977, with his mesmerising and delightful rousing adventure, Star Wars. A story of an epic struggle between the defiant good alliance and the malicious powerful evil empire, this sci-fi classic is charged with spectacle and adventure. Its evocative sound track and its avant-garde, eye-popping special effects, without a doubt, proclaimed it a revolutionist. Lucas paid homage and terrifically borrowed clichés and themes from other movie genres and synthesised them together. This, therefore, created a cultural phenomenon that is to this day universally revered by anyone and everyone. In this glorious fantasy, even Gangster Films contrived to lure themselves right at the beginning. In one of the first scenes, we see guards alarmed from the noise of a space craft that has no intention in making a silent entry. As they stand prepared, holding their guns, a medium shot of a door being forced open with fusing lasers, informs us intruders are moments away from invading the shuttle. Fuming explosives jumps into the screen, tearing the door down. Still at a medium shot, Storm Troopers barge in shooting relentlessly. At an eye-level, we can see the submissive sentinels being attained and falling to the ground, helpless. The Troopers then nonchalantly walks over the attained at a low angle, similar to how gangsters would treat their victims. Obviously insufficient and powerless, the remaining guards run away. In walks Darth Vader in a full...

...Good vs. Evil By: Maria Domingo 3rd block- Ms. Best Good always seems to overcome the evil in every story, novel, movie etc. In both Beowulf and Star wars there is a hero and a villain. Their stories each have a meaning on what is good and evil, most importantly sacrifices. They fight for what they believe and to save their own people. In Beowulf, King Hrothgar builds a great Mead-hall called Herot, where his people and warriors can celebrate and share stories. Despite their celebrations, Grendel, one of Evil’s sons, terrorizes them and kills them every night he hears them happy and cheerful. One day Beowulf, a Geatish warrior, comes upon Demark to defeat Grendel. He fights him unarmed and defeats him by tearing off the monster’s arm. Grendel is mortally wounded and dies in his swamp. However Grendel’s mother seeks revenge, killing one of Hrothgar’s most trusted advisors. Beowulf still fights back by killing her as well. Years pass and a dragon comes to terrorize Denmark, Beowulf also defeats this monster, but dies in the process. He had given all his strength and courage to save his people. In Star Wars IV, Darth Vader had intercepted Princess Leia’s ship and interrogated the crew and ordering his stormtroopers to search the ship for secret documents he believe is there. Princess Leia gets a message in one of her robots, R2, and lets them escape so someone can get the cry for help. Eventually Luke Skywalker finds R2 and stumbles across a bit of the...

Fdasd E3 in 2013, Dice and EA have been working collaboratively to produce possibly the best, modern star wars game to ever hit the gaming market. A trailer was revealed back in April of 2015 showing some in game engine cinematics, teasing some of the immense environments from the star wars universe. However this created an uproar of angry gamers on the internet complaining that the trailer did not represent what they may be seeing visually in the game. And in response, yesterday, at EA's E3 conference in LA, the team from sweden finally were able to silence their haters and blew them away with an incredible gameplay trailer featuring the map hoth on the multiplayer game mode walker assault. The trailer begins inside a hoth echo base on the rebels side, first highlighting that all footage was recorded off a PS4, and from what i can initially tell, the graphics look outstanding. It can be noted that the footage is from pre alpha which shows that graphics and performance in the game will be enhanced before the game ships late November 2015. The trailer throws you straight into the battle with familiar recognisable faces with the customisable character option where you can decide what face you want from the variety of races in the star wars universe. EA DICE went back to the archives of Lucasfilm and Skywalker Sound, pulling the models, props, and sound effects used in the original trilogy of films. They were then captured and integrated into the game, with the hopes of creating one...

Star Wars

...Episode IV: A New Hope Far off in a distant galaxy, the starship belonging to Princess Leia, a young member of the Imperial Senate, is intercepted in the course of a secret mission by a massive Imperial Star Destroyer. An imperial boarding party blasts its way onto the captured vessel, and after a fierce firefight the crew of Leia’s ship is subdued. The dark, forbidding figure of Darth Vader appears, brutally interrogating the crew and ordering his stormtroopers to search the ship for the secret documents he believes it is carrying: the technical readouts for the Empire’s mightiest weapon—a planet-sized battle station called the Death Star. In the confusion, Princess Leia slips away and hides the secret documents, as well as a recorded plea for help, in the memory of R2-D2, a maintenance droid (robot). Leia is taken prisoner, but R2 gets away in an escape pod, along with his best friend, the protocol droid C-3PO. After crash-landing on the planet below, a barren, desert world called Tatooine, the droids set off in search of civilization but soon quarrel over the way to go. R2 insists that he has a mission to perform, but C-3PO wants no part of such an adventure. The two droids go their separate ways but are soon reunited when they are both captured by Jawas, child-sized scavengers who trade in droids and technological scraps. The Jawas sell the droids to Owen Lars, a moisture farmer on a remote homestead. Owen’s nephew, young Luke Skywalker, cleans the droids and, as he does...

Star Wars Conspircy

...Alfredo Sigala Conspiracy Theory Death Star Attack Introduction We’ve all heard the Death Star attack. We all know about Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance and how they were able to steal the plans of the Death star to find its weakness. Then mounted a foolhardy attack on the most powerful, well-defended battle station ever built. And we’ve all seen the video of the one-in-a-million shot that resulted in a massive chain reaction that not just damaged, but completely obliterated that massive technological wonder. Like many, I believed what i saw during the attack. But as I watched the video again, I began to realize that all was not as it seemed. And the more I questioned the official story, the more clear it became. Like many citizens, I have many questions that I would like answered: was the mighty Imperial government really too incompetent to prevent a handful of a ragtag team of rebels from destroying one of their most prized assets? Or are they hiding something from us? Who was really behind the attack? Why did they want the Death Star destroyed? No matter what the answers, we have a problem. We all heard the story of the rebels stealing the plans for the Death Star. Darth Vader chasing down Princess Leia for stealing the plans. The chase was stop at Tatooine when Darth Vader Star Destroyer was able to blast Leias cruiser. Princess Leia was then captured by Darth Vader on her ship, Tantive IV. But before getting captured by Vader she was able to give the plans...

It is a real-life account of how despite financial constraints, the protagonist, Billy Beane assembles a strong baseball team using innovative techniques and strategies. It is the story of how Billy Beane changed the organizational culture of his organization, and influenced that of his competitors’. He re-invented a system that was working for years. Beane and his assistant concluded that by hiring under-valued players, it was possible to win with less than 40% of the budget of their competitors. They applied analytical, evidence-based, sabermetric approach and thus selected a competitive team. As a result, in the 2001-02 season, the team struck an all-time record with a 20 game-winning streak.

...drama film directed by Bennett Miller from a script written by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. The film is based on Michael Lewis's 2003 non-fiction book of the unchanged name, an account of the Oakland Athletics baseball team's 2002 season and their general manager Billy Beane's challenges to assemble a competitive team. In the film, Beane (Brad Pitt) and assistant GM Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), faced with the franchise's critical financial situation, take a sophisticated sabermetric approach towards scouting and evaluating players, acquiring "submarine" pitcher Chad Bradford (Casey Bond) and former catcher Scott Hatteberg (Chris Pratt), and winning 20 consecutive games, an American League record. Columbia Pictures bought the copyrights to Lewis's book in 2004. After a number of years in advance, the film was presented at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival and was released on September 23, 2011 to a box office success and positive reviews. The movie was nominated for six Academy Awards together with Best Actor and Best Picture.

...The book Moneyball by Michael Lewis is about a former major league baseball player who became the manager of the Oakland A’s. It tells the story of how he led the team to success despite their low budget by using computer based analytics to draft players. With the help of Bill James, the Oakland A’s came up with a new plan based on statistics to draft players. He went after players nobody wanted due to their low budget and his new plan. Billy led the Oakland Athletics to a successive win seasons by changing the way he measured players. He abandoned the traditional 5 “tool” the other scouts used and adopted empirical analytics. The abandonment of the traditional assessment of players for the analytical approach led to high victory for the Oakland A’s despite their low budget. By applying sabermetrics to baseball the Oakland Athletics found a way to defeat rich teams. Billy Beane had a different approach, he had metrics he used particular metrics to evaluate and pick players. Those metrics are, on base plus slugging, walks and hits per innings pitched, and base runs. James thought the statistics for baseball were inaccurate. James stated that “statistics were not merely inadequate; they lied. And the lies they told led the people who ran major league baseball teams to misjudge their players and mismanage their games” (Lewis 67). By recognizing this, it helped the Oakland A’s find undervalued players because the other scouts were still judging based on only the statistics of the individual...

...Leadership Lessons from Billy Beane I just returned from seeing Moneyball, a great baseball flick. Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, the GM of the Oakland Athletics 2002 squad that won an unprecedented twenty straight games that season—despite having the lowest pay roll in the major leagues. Season after season Beane would watch teams with deeper pockets steal his star players. When he realized that he couldn’t compete with the New York Yankee’s salaries, he decided that he needed to change the way the game was won. He needed to actually evolve the game by reimagining it in such a way that you couldn’t just buy the World Series. There are some leadership lessons in this true story for church leaders. First lesson: Do not prematurely resolve the tension. Billy refuses to accept solutions from his scouts and assistants that were based on the old paradigm. At this point, he had no solutions himself. He simply held the tension. He steeped himself in the conflict that ensued when he consistently contradicted the “experts”. He increased the evolutionary tension. It’s my experience that most leaders in the church capitulate in the face of conflict. How do we support our leaders and congregations to hold the tension, when everything in us wants to resolve it prematurely for the sake of a false peace—a peace that will ultimately keep us from evolving? Lesson 2: Staying in the fire focuses your attention on outside-the-box solutions. Billy stumbles upon a completely new model in a young Yale...

Jerry Rice

...Jerry Rice Jerry Rice widely considered being the greatest wide receiver in the history of the National Football League. In college, he earned All-America honors and set 18 Division I-AA records. The San Francisco 49ers drafted Rice in the first round in 1985, it was the start of a 20 year career. Jerry Lee Rice, born on October 13, 1962 raised in Starkville, Mississippi had a hard childhood; As a young boy, Jerry saw a lot of poor events in his life, but very little of luxury that later became a part of his life. His father, a brick mason built a home for his large family. When money was short, rice helped his father carry bricks and mix mortar. It was grueling work, but Rice later came to be grateful for it. “It taught me the meaning of hard work,” he said. When money was rational, Jerry started to involve his life around sports. In high school, Rice played every position, from quarterback to tackle. The coach started to see that Jerry can play at college level; from there, Jerry made a promise to a Crawford coach, Archie Cooley, to take a recruiting trip. A graceful, speedy, and nearly unstoppable wide receiver was born. Rice helped put Mississippi State on the map; he caught more than 100 passes in each of his last two seasons. As a senior, he had 28 touchdown receptions. Rice was so good that since he was 18 years old, he has been doubled teamed on the field. After leading Mississippi State to a 24-6-1 record, Jerry was going down the...

...about anything. Even more so people love numbers that are easy and straightforward like the ones I have already given. Those numbers do not seem like anything other then numbers put in a paragraph for effect. But they go straight to the heart of everything that modern analytics has tried to accomplish. What are those numbers? Well the first two are the respective team payrolls for the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics. The Yankees, the evil empire as they are affectionately referred to as, perennially have had the highest team payroll in all of baseball and the spend big to win big philosophy has paid huge for them as the team has won a record 27 world series titles. Oakland on the other hand has been one of the leagues cheapest teams for well over the last twenty years easily not spending in almost 4 years on their team what the Yankees do in one. How does this pertain to analytics and its business world applications? Well the second set of numbers tell that story, as those are the win totals last year for both the Yankees and the A’s. It was the Oakland A’s who back in the early 2000’s began to embrace “Sabermatrics” or the analytical approach to judging talent and acquiring players to their entire organization. As a result despite being in the situation where they are being...

Roxanne Quimby Case:

...Running head: BURT’S BEES MOVING DECISION​1 Roxanne Quimby Case: Burt’s Bees Moving Decision Katherine J Kelley University of Mary Abstract Burt’s Bees is an American natural personal care products subsidiary of Clorox, originated in 1984 in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine as a partnership between Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz making and selling items out of leftover beeswax. Over many years, they built the business into Burt’s Bees, which was a leading natural personal-care brand. In 1993, the business had reached $3 million in sales and Quimby was convinced moving to a new location would bring new advances to the business. That’s when she started to seek out locations that were more business-friendly. Its headquarters moved from Maine to Creedmoor, North Carolina. Over many years, they built Burt’s Bees to offer over 100 natural personal-care products in 4,000 locations with sales growing more than $8 million in addition. Growing out of their 18,000-square-foot factory, they moved once again to Durham, North Carolina. In 1999, Quimby bought out Shavitz’s stake in the company. In 2004, Quimby sold Burt’s Bees to AEA Investors for 80% of the company for $173 million. She would continue to stay on as the CEO of the company. They continued to build Burt’s Bees to offer over 197 products for facial and body skin care, lip care, hair care, baby care, men’s grooming, and outdoor remedies in nearly 30,000 locations. In late 2007, Clorox Company acquired Burt’s Bees...

Historical Events for the Year 1954

...Historical Events For Year 1954 On May 4th, the Phillies and Cardinals set a Major League record (later broken) by using a staggering forty-two combined players during an eleven-inning, 14-10 Philly victory. Philadelphia used seven pitchers throughout the effort and the St. Louis topped them with eight men on the mound. "The Yankee Clipper" Joe DiMaggio married Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe in San Francisco. Nine months later the two were divorced, but continued to maintain an on-again, off-again relationship. DiMaggio had reportedly told friends that the two were going to be re-married shortly before her death from a drug overdose eight years later. In the years that followed, he rarely spoke of her and had roses delivered to her gravesite twice a week for the next two decades. He never married again. Mickey Vernon of the Washington Senators tallied his 2,000th career hit on September 2nd. He also notched his nineteenth home run of the season for a franchise record for left-handers. The Boston Red Sox managed to pull off a rare triple play, but still lost to the Baltimore Orioles during a seventeen-inning game that set a new American League record for time consumed at four hours and fifty-eight minutes, and tied the Major League mark (set seven weeks earlier) for the most players used in a single game (forty-two). The Major League owners association voted down the sale of the Athletics to a syndicate representing the city of Philadelphia. One week later, Arnold...
