Advertisements and Your Health

I discovered that after watching a commercial for Victoria’s Secret that I had to have their newest bra. In my opinion, the bra looked very sexy and would definitely impress my husband. When the model looked into the camera, it was as if she was speaking directly to me. I had to have this bra in the exact black and white color she was wearing. I wanted to look sexy and be confident just like the girl in the advertisement. Many of my bras come from Victoria’s Secret so I had no problem running into the store to make this particular purchase. I was so confident that I didn’t even bother to try it out before leaving the store. When I put this bra on to go out on a date with my husband I was in shock! It was the worst bra I have ever felt in my life. The straps cut down into my shoulders leaving painful red marks. I could also feel the underwire cutting into my skin. I am currently using a fade cream to get rid of the scars that the bra left behind. I intend to continue to shop at Victoria’s Secret but I will not assume that all their products are good just because some model appears to sexy and comfortable. I will not let a model trick me into thinking that a product is right for me just because of the way it looks. The bra probably left her in pain just as it did me. The only difference is that she got paid to suffer and I didn’t. I also intend to try on every bra that I purchase before leaving the store. In the future, I will stick to the bras that I know are right for me to avoid a painful…...

Coca Cola Share Size 1.5l Bottle Desk research showed Coca Cola that a growing number of households contained 1-2 people, which led them to believe that a smaller version of the 2 litre family sized bottle would sell well to these groups. In launching this product (simply sell existing brands such as Coca Cola, Diet Coke etc), Coke did need to alter the product itself, merely different aspects of the marketing mix. 5.

...METHODOLOGY In order for me to carry out this investigation I will be the `Caregiver` which involves me reading `Winnie the Pooh`, a gender neutral book to two of nieces and my nephew. I used a tape recorder to record them, which I then transcribed. I got the parents of the children to sign a consent form which I created; in which they will give me permission of undertake this language investigation. I intend to analyse and annotate my transcripts according to lexical, grammatical and caregiver language features which are evident within my texts. As I believe that these are crucial areas in the way children acquire language. I used Microsoft excel which allowed me to accurately count the number of verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, nouns etc. Which were used by each child. This resulted in statistical data that will create concrete evidence which I will use in my essay to support my analysis. INTRODUCTION/HYPOTHESIS For my A-level English language investigation coursework, I have chosen to evaluate child language Acquisition and how gender differences may be apparent at the telegraphic stage as well as how caregiver language can vary when interacting with different genders. When looking over at my transcripts I will keep a few questions into consideration: * Does gender influence child language acquisition? * Does caregiver language alter our verbal communication when interacting with......

Walt Disney

...films, clothes, resorts and many more. Disney has come to be known as a world where fairytales magic, happiness, optimism and the hope of happy endings are all possible. One of the reasons it is so popular with children is because it encourages them to dream, and to know that their dreams can be possibilities. From Disney’s onset in 1983, it has experienced unprecedented success in its productions, until recently when it began facing challenges that have hindered their optimum growth. These challenges and the solutions are proposed and explored in this paper. The first major challenge Disney faces are that its characters are no longer appealing to the current generation. In this case, characters such as Mickey Mouse and Winnie-the-Pooh which were a huge success fifty years ago, no longer receive that kind of recognition today that they did. More appealing characters are being created that are tailor made to excite and keep viewers interested in them. The second major problem is that Disney animation targets only a specific age group and is not appealing to the other demographic clusters. This reduces the number of viewers that it might have. Another problem it faces is the deteriorating condition of its brands and products as demand for them has decreased. Lastly Disney is also facing an identity crisis in trying to regain direction in deciding type of business it is and explicitly state what they are offering offer. These challenges have forced Disney into a......

Pooh Bear

...Winnie-the-Pooh, also called Pooh Bear, is a fictional anthropomorphic bear created by A. A. Milne. The first collection of stories about the character was the book Winnie-the-Pooh, and this was followed by The House at Pooh Corner . Milne also included a poem about the bear in the children’s verse book When We Were Very Young and many more in Now We Are Six . All four volumes were illustrated by E. H. Shepard. The Pooh stories have been translated into many languages, including Alexander Lenard's Latin translation, Winnie ille Pu, which was first published in 1958, and, in 1960, became the only Latin book ever to have been featured on The New York Times Best Seller list. In popular film adaptations, Pooh Bear has been voiced by actors Sterling Holloway, Hal Smith, and Jim Cummings in English and Yevgeny Leonov in Russian. History Origin Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh for a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. Christopher's toys also lent their names to most of the other characters, except for Owl, Rabbit, and Gopher. Gopher was added to the Disney version. Christopher Robin's toy bear is now on display at the Main Branch of the New York Public Library in New York City. Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear he often saw at London Zoo, and "Pooh", a swan they had met while on holiday. The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by......

Difference Between Russian and American Animation

...Students number: 1111965 Students name: Ksenija Mihailova “Difference between Russian and American animation; Comparing Russian and American Vinnie the Pooh”. " The characters in most of American cartoons do nothing but smack and humiliate each other in all possible ways. There is much less aggression in our cartoons. Our artists didn't want to create action. They wanted to create a dialogue with viewers. It was not a dogma that was enforced upon them - it was a tradition that was coming from Russian folklore fairy tales," -Sergei Merinov , a Russian catoonist. American animation began in the 1920s because of it potential to make profits at a time when cinema idustry was in really hight level and it was golden age of it. As it is not surprisingly Disney soon became one of the most successful animators, largely due to its merger of art with bussiness and profit(David MacFadyen, Yellow Crocodiles and Blue Oranges ). The Disney became popular and now because it aim to capture the spirit and innocence of childhood. It displayed characters running aroud, playing through colorful frames with musical accompaniment. Disney animation was also visually realistic, as it can be seen in Snow White (1937). It set a new standard for characters movement , which now cold be traced from a live actor. Also it helped to set a standard for realism in American animation. In capitalist market Disneys ability –tap into the childhood spirit made the studio so......

...“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Many might see optimisms as just wishful thinkers but really, these people are problem solvers who try to improve a situation. The definition of optimistic is “hopeful and confident about the future” so in other words one would be a Pooh Bear and not an Eeyore. Optimisms can take any negative situation and see a positive light in it, no matter how bad it may seem. So, is it really worth being optimistic or to just continue on with life and its negative aspects? Being optimistic, or acting like Pooh Bear, can really be beneficial to ones physical and mental health; cooping better with stress, improve you immunity, increased life span, improved coping skills, reduced risk for death from cardiovascular disease are all befits to thinking positive. By being pessimist, or acting like Eeyore, has the exact opposite effect; poorer mood, less social support, prolonger recovery from stress and illness and less satisfaction with life. Optimism could be one of the most important predictors oh physical and metal life. Positive thinking can even help women deliver healthier babies. A study done by Lobel, Devincent, Kaminer and Meyer in 2000 showed that optimistic mothers deliver healthier and heavier babies. “Women's self-reported experience of the ease or difficulty of the current pregnancy . . . Those who reported having the easiest pregnancies had the highest levels of...

Leadership Qualities of Winnie the Pooh

...to them sometimes.” – Alan Alexander Milne, writing as Winnie the Pooh. Have you ever sat down and thought about the leader in you? Many people avoid thinking about the inner qualities they poses that makes them a good or bad leader. Most people, in fact, believe that being a good leader is just a natural trait born to those select few who are lucky enough to be chosen. Everyone needs to sit down and look at their own abilities and recognize what is helping them to achieve their leadership goals or what is actually holding them back. In order to understand your own leadership qualities though, you must first understand what leadership is. There is no definitive definition of what leadership actually is. We must look at each quality and characteristic that shapes the image of a leader. There is no better example to follow then the lessons learned from the one and only Winnie the Pooh. “ Created by Alan Alexander Milne and was first published on October 14th, 1926. The characters in the book were based on Milne’s own son’s adventures with his stuffed animals and were featured in 4 books written by Alan Alexander Milne and illustrated by E.H. Shephard. The books were a favorite by millions, but the most influential people they touched were the daughters of the famous illustrator, Walt Disney. Their love for the books inspired Disney to bring the characters to life and in 1977 “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” was released as the first feature-length animated film.......

...Analysis of Pooh Bear’s Nonsensical Hums Throughout the story, Pooh bear hums and songs are added to create a sort of lightness to so called serious situations. He is a simple, humorous and loving character that captures the facets of childhood. Milne has created a novel to entertain children and their parents through creating a quirky yet secure world of imagination, adventure and enjoyment. During the time period when Winnie the Pooh was written there were many historical events taking place, such as the World War, social dilemmas confronting England and the technological advances in society. None of which are mentioned in the book. Paula T. Connolly writes the following about Winnie-the-Pooh “envisions an alternative world that is safe, rural, insulated and largely Edenic.” We can see why Connolly would think as such from the many poems and hums throughout the novel, which are unstructured and non-judgmental. An example of this would be the “Cloud Song” (pg.17) where Pooh Bear sings about being a cloud to deceive the Queen Bee. The song is spontaneous and Milne appreciates that children have this great gift of imagination like Pooh. The hums, poems and songs are “largely Edenic” (4) throughout the book and it is said that children have a greater connection to nature than what an adult does; so nature is supposed to inspire us and make one feel like a child again.   On the other hand some aspects of the poems are much darker than what meets the eye. One may say that......

Frienship Is a Verb

... They will not betray you, they let you in their lives and care about you deeply. Sometimes, friendship arises from some quarrel and altercation but if we could just surmount these, a better bond of mutual affection between companions could be procure and thus, a greater and stronger friendship ultimately obtain. Whatever the results it may assess, honesty and trust is a must to establish a harmonious relationship between friends, for without honesty and trust, friendship would not work it at all. Friendship is an unconditional relationship for sometimes we need to sacrifice our time just to comfort them in times of problem. Like the quotation of Winnie-the-Pooh stating that If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. Just imagine that for Winnie-the-Pooh the value of friendship is priceless, no one can ever buy the effort and time he exert to make his friends the happiest in the world even he sacrifices one day of his life to his friends. No single word can described true friendship but it can be described through action, in the way how we show it in our friends to let them feel the presence of care, a care of a valuable friendship. Therefore, friendship is not a noun to be define but a verb to be acted upon....

The Man Who Hugged Women

...North London”, since it is bus and not train/car does Freya probably live in London. She is married to a psychi-atrist with private practice; named Mukesh. Since their kitchen on p.1 l. 2, is de-scribed as large, and it is recently refurbished does it seem like Freya and Mukesh is a middle/upper class family. They have a child named Rita together, who is in uni-versity now. Freya assists, as a teacher’s assistant at the primary school where their daughter Rita had gone. She used the job to get rid of excess time and to give some-thing back to the school, even though she didn’t knew what. Freya doesn’t seem like an independent, strong woman in her decisions; she constanly thinks about what Mukesh will think, “ Did Mukesh like it?” “He’d pooh-pooh the whole idea of going to see this guy” etc. She didn’t ‘stand her ground’ on their daughters choice educa-tion either. Mukesh decided what was best, even though Freya didn’t agree upon it (p. 4 l. 113-117). After Mukesh leaves early every morning and Rita is away studying; Freya is very lonely and want’s “a dog to fill the gap”. She complains in her thoughts about Mukesh not being spontaneous and romantic enough. She describes that eve-rything he does is like “it came from some marriage counselling manual”, and it is actually suspicious the way he on a regular basis gives her flowers (maybe......

...If there is ever a tomorrow that we are not together, there is one thing you should always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is: even if we're part, I will always be with you in the heart. -- Winnie the Pooh This is a quote from Winnie the Pooh, my little sister's favorite silly, old bear. It's also something that my sister and I tell each other often. It's been really difficult for her since I left for college and this saying helps reassure her that we are always together. My sister was born July 17, 2002. I was 8 years old. I remember being so excited that I was finally a big sister. I got to help feed her, burp her, play with her however; I did draw the line at changing diapers! She was 17 months old when our lives changed forever. She was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. I really didn't understand what was going on. I knew that she had to have surgery. I knew she was very sick. She had been in the hospital for almost a month when I found out even more distressing news, my parents would have to take she to Memphis, TN to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for treatment and I couldn't go with them. She underwent another surgery and she had to have 36 radiation treatments and she and my parents were gone for the longest 4 months of my life! When she came back she had to learn everything all over again. She used a walker to help her walk. She had to......

...Jeremy Gullett Dec 1, 2014 Psy 1100 The Many Disorders of Winnie I was originally going to do my paper on one of the many characters Johnny Depp has played over the years but I chose to go in a different direction. I was going through my movie library and I came across “The Winnie the Pooh Movie”, and it got me to thinking of how each character in the cartoon each have different psychological issues that would fit in this paper. This was one of my favorite cartoons when I was a child and would have never have guessed these characters had any issues but now after taking this class I am fully aware of their issues. This is a list of the characters and what I think each psychological trait they carry. Christopher Robin: Schizophrenia – this is when there is a malfunction in the perception of reality which is certainly evident in Christopher having hallucinations where he imagines his stuffed toys are alive Winnie The Pooh: Eating Disorder – though you may not think of this as a mental disorder, the cause of it is Pooh’s low self-esteem which is psychological resulting in his excessive need for honey. I also think Pooh has slight case of Narcissism the reason I come to this decision is Pooh never cares much about anyone else just his own agenda until he relizes he has hurt someone’s feeling Piglet: Omniphobia – a mental condition where he has a fear everything. Piglet also suffers from Anxiety Disorder which causes him to get overly-nervous several times and this......
