2001: Una Odisea del Espacio

Ya había tenido la oportunidad de ver esta película con anterioridad y desde la primera vez que la vi me gusto la variedad de temas que aborda y como juega con las teorías de la evolución y la vida en otros planetas. Este último punto en especial es un tema controversial en el mundo, el cual ha dado pauta para muchas especulaciones y conjeturas. Stanley Kubrick presenta una existencia de vida inteligente que además de ser superior a la nuestra, al parecer es gracias a ella que somos quienes somos actualmente y quienes seremos en el futuro. Esta película me sorprendió mucho además por sus efectos especiales e ideas futuristas, la verdad no pensé que se pudieran lograr cosas así a finales de los 60’s.

Algo que se me quedó grabado es el inicio de la película, cuando observamos al grupo de monos, inmediatamente me vino a la mente la posibilidad de que fueran antepasados del ser humano y efectivamente así lo fue, en sus actitudes podemos ver que el grupo es diferente a un grupo normal de monos por sus habilidades y astucia, lo que atrae el interés de la raza superior y lo que marca el inicio de su “experimento” si podemos llamarlo así.

De la misma manera es importante resaltar que es esta escena la que se ha hecho famosa por así decirlo, recientemente uno de mis artistas favoritos de Kpop uso esta escena en su video, aunque obviamente modifica algunas cosas para adecuarlo a lo que él quiere transmitir, la idea está ahí y podemos observar la misma escena de Kubrik pero en vez de un hueso, los monos traen un micrófono.

El video es muy bueno y también la canción, sin embargo los efectos visuales y las imágenes que se utilizan me parecen que hacen mucha alusión a la película de Kubrik, aunque también hace a alusión a otros artistas y formas de arte como lo es Dalí y el surrealismo. De verdad le recomiendo verlo hay elementos de pop art, abstract art y misterio. Por lo cual considero que la importancia de la película no solamente se queda en la temática que aborda sino también en el uso de las imágenes para transmitir el mensaje y la proyección de la misma. A continuación dejo el link del video:

El poema, que se cree fue transmitido, en primera instancia, de forma oral, consta de 24 cantos y fue escrito usando una métrica llamada hexámetro dactílico, es decir, cada línea de la Odisea original estaba formada por seis unidades o pies. Argumento Odiseo es un héroe griego y el Rey de Ítaca, quién, después de pelear la guerra con Troya, le toma diez años regresar a casa. Penélope es su esposa y Telémaco su hijo. La Odisea cuenta la historia de Odiseo, uno de los héroes griegos más famosos, y su travesía de diez años a casa al final de la Guerra con Troya.

Queso

...El queso es un alimento sólido elaborado a partir de la leche cuajada de vaca, cabra, oveja, búfala, camello u otros mamíferos rumiantes. La leche es inducida a cuajarse usando una combinación de cuajo (o algún sustituto) y acidificación. Las bacterias se encargan de acidificar la leche, jugando también un papel importante en la definición de la textura y el sabor de la mayoría de los quesos. Algunos también contienen mohos, tanto en la superficie exterior como en el interior. Para los antiguos griegos “el queso era un regalo de los dioses”.1 Hay centenares de variedades de queso. Sus diferentes estilos y sabores son el resultado del uso de distintas especies de bacterias y mohos, diferentes niveles de nata en la leche, variaciones en el tiempo de curación, diferentes tratamientos en su proceso y diferentes razas de vacas, cabras o el mamífero cuya leche se use. Otros factores incluyen la dieta del ganado y la adición de agentes saborizantes tales como hierbas, especias o ahumado. Que la leche esté o no pasteurizada también puede afectar al sabor. Para algunos quesos se cuaja la leche añadiéndole ácidos tales como vinagre o jugo de limón. Sin embargo, la mayoría se acidifican en grado menor gracias a las bacterias que se le añaden, que transforman los azúcares de la leche en ácido láctico, a lo que sigue la adición de cuajo para completar el proceso de cuajado. El cuajo es una enzima tradicionalmente obtenida del estómago del ganado lactante, pero actualmente también se...

My Mistress Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun

...“My Mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun” BY: Christopher Kirkhart Proffessor Guirguis Polk Community College Lit-1000-46898 22 September 2013 Christopher Kirkhart Professor Guirguis LIT 1000-46898 September 22, 2013 “My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun” In “My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun” Shakespeare wanted to show that one’s love does not have to be portrayed as a picture of ultimate beauty to be loved ("My mistresses eyes are nothing like the sun"). The diction in this poem is Shakespeare stating that beauty is not all about how one looks or even smells. He knows that not everyone is flawless, but everyone has flaws and should be known for their true beauty which is on the inside. He doesn’t state anything about her that isn’t true, yet he portrays her exactly as she is, his true love. Even though he is commenting on her flaws he does it in a relaxed tone. This makes the poem pleasant to read and helps to see it for what it truly means. Shakespeare’s diction has plenty of attitude by describing beautiful and wonderful things, then he states that she is the total opposite of them. She is not white as snow but a brownish gray, roses are a nice red and white beauty, but not her, she’s the opposite ("Mabillard"). “love to hear her speak, yet well I know that music hath a far more pleasing sound,” his attitude is confident by telling us that she is a normal person that we can relate to, not a fake perfect person that does......

Risk and Return

...Investment and Portfolio Management: Risk and Return Marvin Brown is a savvy investor who is always looking for a sound company to include in his portfolio of stocks and bonds. Being somewhat risk-averse, his main objective is to buy stock in firms that are mature and well-established in their respective industries. Wal-Mart is one of the stocks Marv is currently considering for inclusion in his portfolio. Wal-Mart has four major areas of business: traditional Wal-Mart discount stores, Supercenters, Sam's Clubs, and international operations. Although Wal-Mart was established over 50 years ago, it continues to achieve growth through expansion. The Supercenter concept, which combines groceries and general merchandise, is extreme success as 75 new Supercenters were opened last year alone. Another 95 will be opening over the next two years. Sam's clubs have also seen success as 99 Pace stores (Pace is one of Sam's former Competitors) were converted to Sam's stores in 1995. In addition to taking over competitor stores, Sam's also opened 22 new stores of its own. Internationally, the picture is equally as rosy. In Canada, 122 former Woolco stores were converted to Wal-Mart discount stores. Expansion has reached Mexico and Hong Kong as well, as 24 Clubs and Supercenters and 3 "Value Clubs" were established, respectively. Wal-Mart plans to continue its reign as the world's largest retailer through expansion by developing the previously discussed 95 Wal-Mart discount stores, 12 new......

Business Research Week 2

...In 2001 pharmaceutical giant Pfizer was slapped with a lawsuit for the misconduct of tovafloxacin’s clinical-trial in 1996. Trovan is an oral antibiotic .Thirty families filed the lawsuit stating the unethical treatment of Nigerian children. The suit also mentions how Pfizer did not obtain consent from the children’s parents, as well as failure to adhere to the study protocol resulted in brain damage, hearing loss, and death of eleven of the 2,000 children in the study. The suit also claims that Pfizer’s irresponsibility was caused by taking advantage of a meningitis epidemic. Pfizer also failed to give the families the option of seeking an “effective and approved alternative” treatment. The suit requested that Pfizer provide ongoing medical care to evaluate the liver and joint function of the enrolled children (Ready, 2001). The uproar came to a head when stories came out in the Washington Post December of 2000. China, Africa, Coat Rica, and Thailand were all mentioned in the Washington Post about how US researchers were not ensuring that overseas study subjects gave informed consent (Ready, 2001). Pfizer shot back by stating all studies were “designed and conducted in accordance with good medical practice and ethical norms and denies the families were unaware that their children were part of the study” (Ready, 2001). Pfizer fessed up to some “protocol deviations” and “record keeping errors”, but most importantly did not “compromise patient care or the scientific......

...Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don’t ‘Good things take time, but great things happen all at once.’ – Rat Race. Jim Collins counters criticisms on Built to Last with Good to Great, by unfolding sought-after information on how to turn a company into a great one. ‘Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…and Others Don’t’ written by Jim Collins in 2001 is the outcome of a rather ambitious research project. Collins and his team studied 11 companies, chosen out of 1,435 companies, which were able to transform themselves from ‘good’ companies to ‘great’ companies. These 11 companies were included based on at least 15 years of advanced performance. The research demonstrates the course of action that ‘good’ companies take on their journey to becoming ‘great’. Jim Collins began his research as a Stanford Graduate School of Business faculty member. At Stanford University, Collins has degrees in mathematics and business administration, as well as degrees from the University of Colorado and the Peter F.

Ketchum Case Study

...Ketchum left the deepest impressions on me, though all of the site visits are impressive. I would like to share some opinions of mine with everyone of you. Firstly, Ketchum offers a culture environment that generates sense of identity. “At Ketchum, my personal values are honored and it feels like more of a home.”, said by Marc Philips, a digital and content strategist in Ketchum. A team works more efficient when every teammate has a deep comprehension about what they are doing and what is each others’ role. On the other hand, people would contribute more passion and time to their tasks if what they are doing is what they are believing. As to Ketchum, I can still remember those photos which was shot when they are working as a team. People there analyze, do creative thinking, discuss together, which generates certain consensus among them. It is those consensuses that make all their teammates align with their team and work in a more efficient way. Secondly, Ketchum has an in-house studio, which is different from what I expected. Normally, a PR agency or Advertisement Agency own a pool of outsourcings. When a strategy is made, detailed and concrete operation tasks will be distributed to outsourcings including some private studios. This is mainly because if those tasks distributed by strategy team can not fulfil the working schedule of executive team, the cost of executive team would be wasted. Nonetheless, as to Ketchum, things are different. Ketchum is large enough to......

September 11th

...How have the events of September 11, 2001 affected you personally and how have they changed the country? What has been the effect on American relations with other countries? The events of September 11, 2001 will forever be etched in history. This day changed the lives of all United States citizens as well as those around the world. While the degree of change varies from person to person, the common message that everyone will forever share is that this day marked a new beginning for all. The magnitude and variance of change that was felt as a result of September 11th impacted individuals, neighborhood communities, cities, states, nations, and finally the world. Although I did not lose anyone as a result of the terrorist attacks, it was close, too close for comfort. While my story pales in comparison to the thousands who lost family members and friends on that day, I share my heartache and grief with all of them. September 11, 2001 was a frightening day for me, one that I will never forget. I was eighteen at the time and a freshman in college. After my morning class I passed a television in one of the on-campus café’s that was showing what I thought was a replay of Tower one of the World Trade Center being struck by an airplane. To my shocking astonishment it was actually live coverage and showing Tower two of the World Trade Center being stuck by another airplane.

Ncoer

...A: If an NCO receives a DUI, it should be specifically mentioned on the NCO-ER. You can not mention any disciplinary action (such as article 15, letter of reprimand) but you can mention the offense that led to that action. Therefore, specifically stating the fact is acceptable and encouraged. For example: o NCO exercised poor judgment by operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol o NCO was cited for driving with blood alcohol content of 1.6 - well above the legal limit of .08 Q: I have a NCO who currently has a profile which prohibits him from taking the APFT. The problem is he is over the weight screening table and does not meet the body fat standards. The NCO-ER indicates 72/232 'NO' and a bullet comment indicating that a doctor has evaluated weight as medical disorder and treatment is pending. The rater checked the 'success' box. The unit has not put the soldier in a weight control program due to the medical condition and states they will not mark 'Needs Improvement.' Is the bullet comment acceptable and can the NCO be rated as 'success?' A: The correct entry is '72/232 NO.' The bullet should state something to the effect as the following: o soldier has a confirmed medical disorder which resulted in the overweight condition; soldier is not currently enrolled in an overweight program due to medical diagnosis As far as whether to check 'SUCCESS' or 'NEEDS IMPROVEMENT,' that is the rater's call. If the rater feels strongly that the only......
