As a conclusion, we as the younger generation should take better care of our senior citizens. Take care of their welfare and shower them with love like what we want ourselves to be treated by our younger generation when we are old.
Family members, government agencies and non-government agencies should work together hand-in-hand to provide senior citizens with proper aids and support to enable them to live happily and comfortably.

During my time working with this project visiting institutions and sitting down talking with a few elderly persons it made me realize that no matter what age you are or the state you are in you should be treated as any other regular person with respect. Senior Citizens are Human Beings, these people have feelings too. (Psalm 92:14) They will still yield fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap and very green.

The Senior Citizen's Center was the idea of Sir. Clement Maynard, who along with a committee continues as a group to raise funds to complete the project and assist with its up keep.

The Ministry of Housing and Social Development is responsible for the management of the Centre as well as assisting in the upkeep of the building and its surroundings. The Centre became operational on April 15, 1991

The purpose of the Day Care Centre is to provide a place for seniors who would otherwise spend the greater portion of their day alone. At the Centre, the seniors participate in supervised organized activities. They also benefit from companionship, participate in sessions to enrich their spiritual and social well being as well as increase their knowledge in areas relevant to them.…...

Citizen Kane

...Between Dreams and Reality: The Citizen Kane Effect “If I hadn’t been very rich, I might have been a really great man.” Charles Kane has said to audiences since 1941. Citizen Kane has been a staple in the classrooms of film studies as well as on lists of classic movies. Although meant to have been premiered on February 14, 1941 at Radio City Music Hall, the intense threats of William Randolph Hearst, who it is believed Orson Welles modeled the fictional character of Kane from, caused most theatres unwilling to risk backlash and thus striking the film from their show lineups. Financial success at the box office was assured to be nonexistent and eventually caused Welles departure from RKO Studios and restricted direction freedom on his future projects. The controversy surrounding the film didn’t stop there. True authorship will forever be debated with credit being distributed between co-writers Mankiewicz and Welles. Although either side you take gain perspective on the core audience they developed their groundbreaking story for and undoubtably had the greatest impact on: the middle class liberal males of the 1940’s and 1950’s. “The people are going to see Citizen Kane, and not one of them will be quite the same person after seeing it as he was before. It is profoundly moving an experience as only this extraordinary and hitherto unexplored medium of sound-cinema can afford in two hours. You leave it with regret, wishing you could see it all through again...

Citizen Cane

...“Citizen Cane” By Fran-Marie Grant English Comp I EN1010 10/28/13 The White Settlement area was settled beginning in 1850. The first settlers were farmers from other states such as Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, etc. The area was referred to as White Settlement because it was the only community outside the fort (Fort Worth) that was settled entirely by white people. All of the other communities were mixed Indian and Whites. The area was about 10 miles west of the Fort. Early settlers were harassed by hostile Indians...but soon made friends of them and did considerable trading with those in the area. The land was rich and produced bumper crops of corn, grain, etc. A mill was established and the area did considerable trading, not only with the Indians, but other whites in the vicinity. The community remained more or less the same until 1940, when a bomber plant was built on the shores of Lake Worth in the area. The government built temporary housing for workers and businesses were established. In 1941 the city was incorporated and after the war continued to grow with the General Dynamics plant and other businesses. No farms remain within the city limits today. The community itself is rich in sales taxes and motel taxes and provides great parks, a public library, recreation department, senior services and first class fire and police protection. It is completely surrounded by Fort Worth...

Citizen Kane

...**** ******** Humanities 17 Mr. **** 10/20/12 Citizen Kane, Orson Wells (1941): employed new cinematographic advances for film. Wells, use of camera placement, movement and the entire editing process paved the way for a new era of filmmaking. His brilliant use of Iconic imagery, help to tell the story of Charles Foster Kane. The opening of this scene seems to be one of childhood innocence. A young Charles, sledding down a hill. The blind edit straight to the snowball hitting the sign of Mrs. Kane’s boarding house can be considered an iconic image for what’s to come. The over the shoulder shot of his mother talking to Charles still has the focus on Charles and his innocence. As the camera pulls backwards you get a better idea of what’s going on. In the negative space, while mother and father are talking to Mr. Thatcher you see Charles still childishly playing in the snow. Having no idea he is about to given away. The camera following Mrs. Kane back to the window then the close-up of her face shows the intensity of her emotion she has for selling her son. The close-up of Charles face makes you feel his pain and anger as it transitions to another iconic image of the empty sled gathering snow, letting you know Charles is gone. In the dining room with Emily the lighting is focused on Emily who is centered in the shot. The lighting and her appearing brighter shows that for now she is the main focus. As the camera moves in it accentuates the love between them. The...

Senior Speech

...Senior Speech Assalamualaikum everyone, This was my second year attending city of knowledge. It was a very different experience for me because I was in public school my entire life. I risked a lot to attend this school, my class rank in my previous school, my friends, amongst other things. But it was all worth it. And it's a huge blessing to have friends with the same faith. At times I was sick of the school, but the students at the school made school worth coming to. From elementary to high school, the smiles and laughter I've shared with the students made everything worth it. Maysum, abidi, Othman, Abidi, hamid, monte, Addo, hani, and all of the others. I'd say more names but that would take forever and be annoying so I'll avoid it. I'd also like to thank all of my teachers for dealing with my nonchalant attitude and for trying their best to teach me. I appreciate almost everyone that I've met this year because of city of knowledge, thank you all for everything. I want to finish my speech by thanking the most important people in my life, my parents and family. Thank you so much for supporting me and helping me through everything I've faced these past 18 years of my life. Thank you for all the sacrifices you've made for me. I will never be able to repay you guys or thank you guys enough no matter what I do. I hope that one day I can do the same for my future family. Thanks class of 2012, and thank you all for listening. Have a good evening....

Corporate Citizen

... would fill the void left by vanishing jobs on family farms. The Mexican President, Carlos Salinas, assured the citizens of his nation that NAFTA would result in the “export of goods, not people.” (UC Davis, 2000). However, that is a very distant reality. Since NAFTA was signed, illegal immigrants in the U.S. has ballooned to an estimated 12 million from 3.9 million in 1993. Accounting for a total surge of over 300 percent. According to the Pew Hispanic Center, 57 percent of those arriving in to the country illegally are from Mexico (Batalova, Terrazas, 2010). In between 1994 and 2001, the overflow of inexpensive, subsidized American corn triggered the value of the produce to tumble 70 percent in Mexico. The fall in prices resulted in millions of farm jobs to vanish, with the numbers dwindling from 8.1 million in 1993 to 6.8 million in 2002. Those out-of-work growers make up the majority of the illegal immigrants entering the U.S. each year. Incapable to compete with their subsidized American opponents – $10 billion in 2000 – countryside Mexican farmers have progressively pursued work in the United States. Corn generating jobs, which is Mexico’s leading cash crop, decreased by over one million in the first decade of NAFTA. Furthermore, an additional 142,000 job cultivating flowers and fruit have vanished (Johnson, 2011). The end consequence has been a deluge of illegal immigration into the United States. With opportunities withering up in Mexico, millions have......

Citizen Kane

...Among many movie critics, filmmakers, and fans, Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane has come to be known as the greatest film ever made. Since its release in 1941 the film has received praise for its innovative mix of cinematography and music, among other theatrical elements. The movie centers on the mysterious legacy of newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane, and the meaning of his last words, “rosebud.” Welles’ groundbreaking cinematography and mix of lighting (or lack thereof), low-angle shots, and deep focus, contribute to the audience’s awareness of the important events occurring throughout the movie while simultaneously evoking feelings of curiosity towards the seemingly mysterious and solitary life of Charles Foster Kane. In certain scenes throughout the movie, the lack of lighting, ironically, catches the audience’s eye. The first scene where the lack of lighting really stands out takes place when the few journalists assigned to write about Kane’s death are discussing the possible meanings of his last word, “rosebud.” The first thing the audience is presented with is a room encompassed in darkness, with the exception of two streams of light pouring in from the windows, barely seeming to effectively light up the room. When the men pass by the light, all that is visible are their profiles, and a few puffs of smoke. Although Welles uses a long shot and deep focus for the majority of this scene, the audience really doesn’t get a look into where the characters are spatially located...

Citizen Kane

...When I first saw this clip of Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941) my first instinct was that it was comic relief. The extremely frustrated director, Jedediah trying so hard not to fall asleep and of course Bernstein reclining back in his seat more interested in playing with the playbill then watching Susan on stage. While this scene may be rather humorous a lot about both Susan and Kane is revealed through emotions and actions of the two. As the clip progresses it begins to become less and less humorous and then more and more painful. The singing soon becomes irritating and us the viewer becomes as sick of it as the patrons do. Then when it’s all over and we see the expression on Kane’s face, and hear Susan’s heavy breathing that we finally realize exactly what this scene represents. We enter this part of the movie not really knowing what to expect. We know that Kane’s life is beginning to fall apart, having left his first wife for Susan and loosing some of his political pull in the process. The scene begins with a close up of Susan; she is singing but is quickly interrupted by the director who is trying to correct her mistakes. The camera then tracks to him, slowly zooming out to show the hectic movements of actors and stage hands frantically running around setting up, just before the camera tilts up to focus on a stage light just overhead to further. We are then treated to a nice backstage shot right as the curtains go up, then the lights flicker on and all eyes are on...

Citizen Kane

...Welles Citizen Kane continues to engage and persuade audiences through its cinematic treatment of ambition and corruption Welles film explores the fragility that frames human experience. To what extent does this statement encapsulate your views of the text The complexity of the human experience is shaped by individual’s attitudes, morals and perceptions. Orson Welles Citizen Kane explores this complexity through its portrayal of media tycoon Charles Kane, highlighting the centrality of ambition and corruption in an individual’s pursuit of power and relationships. Wells employs avant grande cinematography to engage and persuade the audience of the instability of the human experience. Citizen Kane demonstrates how despite the individuals desire for relationships; their ability to forge connections can be undermined by their personal perceptions and ideals. Kane’s moral vacuity and ambitious nature is central to his inability to sustain meaningful relationships. Leland apathy notes, “All he (Kane) ever wanted out of life was love”, with this desire for love resonating in the motif of ‘Rosebud’, emblematic of his mothers love. Nonetheless, Kane’s superficial pursuit of transient pleasures and ambition results in the corruption of his relationships. This is accentuated in the breakfast montage, which depicts Kane and his wife Emily at progressive breakfasts throughout the course of their marriage. To begin with Kane seems to be the ideal husband – he compliments her...

Citizen Kane

...Alessandro Montecalvo 3/9/15 CM 241- Understanding Movies Citizen Kane By the time Citizen Kane came out in 1941, many technological advances had been made in terms of filmmaking. Different photographic techniques became important as they were chosen and implemented for specific reasons and at specific times of the film. Citizen Kane is considered by many critics to be one of the best films of all time mainly because it was so innovative at the time. The film is often praised for its cinematography, sound, and narrative structure. I personally did not love the film because I found it to be a bit boring at times. It felt more like a biography of Kane’s life and not much more. I kept waiting for “it” to happen but no monumental or memorable event really ever occurred. The film begins with Charles Foster Kane on his deathbed as he whispers his last word “rosebud”, before dropping his globe and it shattering everywhere. The rest of the film is essentially a chase by a reporter named Jerry Thompson as he tries to find out what Kane meant by “rosebud”. Through a series of interviews that Thompson conducts, we get an in-depth look at Thompson’s life through flashbacks in the perspective of many people who knew him and were close to him. The setup of the movie was something I did enjoy. The film began at the end of Kane’s life and then progresses through flashbacks. I always find it interesting when movies are set up that way because traditionally a film has a conclusion...

Interview a Senior Citizen Paper

...Interview a Senior Citizen Nisee Rockwell PSY/375 November 2, 2015 Moriel McDuffy Interview a Senior Citizen Senior citizens are fascinating individuals, most of them have lived through some of the huge events in history and have much knowledge that they have gained over the years. I have had the pleasure of interviewing a 66 year old woman, I will not use her real name, so I will use the name Mary. I have known Mary for 3 years I dated her youngest son 4 years ago. I asked her if she will be willing to do the interview because she was a vibrant, active, social older woman who had a positive outlook for all things in life. She gladly accepted the invitation for the interview. Mary loves to talk, so I had to cut down her answers quite a bit for the interview answers, but kept the most important parts. This paper will be covering the most notable aspects of this interview and some things that I have learned from the interview. When I arrived at her home, she invited me inside. Her home was very warm and welcoming. Her home was very nice, clean and decorative for Thanksgiving. I also took a look at her garden, where she has a very great collection of flowers and in another area, she has her fruit trees and vegetables, I have not seen her garden for a while. I was surprised on how big it had got since last time I visited. She loves to be in her garden. We joked around for a bit after I arrived and we sat down in the cute little gazebo in the garden. She brought out...

Citizen Participation

... public policies’. This is a wide-ranging definition, which extends the emphasis of public participation beyond the development of policy, to decision-making and implementation. 2. Theoretical frameworks 2.1 Arnstein’s ladder of participation Perhaps the seminal theoretical work on the subject of community participation was by Arnstein (1969). The particular importance of Arnstein’s work stems from the explicit recognition that there are different levels of participation, from manipulation or therapy Participation: A theoretical context 1 of citizens, through to consultation, and to what we might now view as genuine participation, i.e. the levels of partnership and citizen control (see figure 1). The limitations of Arnstein’s framework are obvious. Each of the steps represents a very broad category, within which there are likely to be a wide range of experiences. For example, at the level of ‘informing’ there could be significant differences in the type and quality of the information being conveyed. Realistically therefore, levels of participation are likely to reflex a more complex continuum than a simple series of steps. The use of a ladder also implies that more control is always better than less control. However, increased control may not always be desired by the community and increased control without the necessary support may result in failure. Figure 1: A ladder of participation (Arnstein, 1969) 2.2 A ladder of citizen empowerment Since Arnstein, increasingly......
