Chapter 9 : Sound- There’s always two parts to a movie: vision and hearing. The sound operates on both physical and psychological levels. For most films sound provides cues that help us form expectations about meaning. In some cases, sound actually shapes our analyses and interpretations. Sound calls attention not only to itself but also to silence, to the various roles that each plays in our world and in the world of a film.

Ebert’s article focuses on what defined the landmark 1941 film as the innovational piece of artwork it was and continues to be. Ebert himself describes Welles as a prodigy of his profession and follows the fictional Kane through channeling the real-life Hearst here and there during certain parts of the film. A psychological turn takes place at the end of the article as Ebert weaves the publicly scrutinized tycoon into a secluded and deluded old man towards the end of his life and how an unfulfilled childhood turned him into the powerhungry figure he was.

Bird Flu

...Should we purposefully engineer avian flu strains to become highly transmissible in humans? In our view, no. We believe the benefits of this work do not outweigh the risks. There are no guarantees that such a deadly strain of avian flu would not escape accidentally from the laboratory. This particular experiment was performed by internationally respected scientists in biosafety conditions considered top of the line. They seem to have taken the expected and necessary precautions. The risk of a person accidentally becoming infected and starting an outbreak with this new strain is low. But it is not zero. The safety record of most labs working at high biocontainment levels is outstanding, and the historic number of accidents is very low. In almost all situations, even if a laboratory worker comes in contact with a dangerous pathogen and becomes sick, the risk of extensive wide community spread is negligible. This is because very few dangerous pathogens are as highly transmissible as influenza is. An accidental escape of an influenza strain from a lab in 1977 proves the possibility: That accident led to widespread flu epidemics. Given the potential global consequences of an accident with the newly modified strain of avian flu, we are playing with fire. We are not opposed to research in high-containment labs using dangerous pathogens, including H5N1. Over the past decade, the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC has publicly argued for the importance of such research to develop...

She loves Maya but raises her with a stern hand. She does not want her granddaughter and grandson to be ashamed of being black and poor. Maya does not understand why Momma does not stand up to prejudice whites. Momma teaches Maya how to act around whites. When three white children mock Momma from the front yard, it makes Maya furious. Momma maintains her dignity through the taunting by a gaze and humming a hymn. They attempt to embarrass Momma but only succeed in embarrassing themselves. She calls each girl Miz to show respect for each. They reply with “bye Annie.” This reply shows their disrespect and prejudice for her.

The Yellow Bird

...The yellow bird One of the most groundbreaking corporate design solutions of the twentieth century By Helen Gerritzen Birds are fascinating creatures, small yet powerful. They display a range of colors and expressions. Moreover ,certain birds characterize particular qualities. Everyone identifies with similes such as “ as wise as an owl”, “as proud as a peacock” and “as graceful as a swan”. All three parallels can be used in a logo to represent various aspects of a company. A yellow crane flying high above in the air surrounded by a yellow circle against a dark blue background. The idea of “as free as a bird” immediately comes to my mind when I see the effective design of Lufthansa´s logo (Designfollow,2012). And this is where Lufthansa´s identity begins. A simple logo can represent a whole brand. In a very effective way. But what is behind the logo that gives Lufthansa´s such a strong identity and makes them to one of the most attractive employers in Germany? Clear Mission Statement “We are Europe´s powerhouse connecting Europe with the world and the world via Europe with our global service.” (Lufthansa Group,2013) First of all Lufthansa defines a clear, well written and concise mission statement. It acts as the perfect tool to develop in order to define the business's purpose, activities, and values. People, Planet, Profit The principle of people, planet profit matters because people do not trust business. They increasingly see companies as irresponsible...

Bird Flu

...Bird Flu (H5N1) This articles discusses Bird Flu (H5N1). It talks about a lot of information from the causes, symptoms, exams and tests to detect it, the treatments and also the outlook or prognosis. The first human case was reported in Hong Kong in 1997 and was transmitted through chickens. This means that the virus was able to pass the barrier and mutate between animal and man. Since then there has been hundreds of cases and the mortality rate is approximetely 50%. Your risk of contracting the avian flu virus increases if you work with poultry, travel to countries where the virus is present or you consume undercooked poultry meat or eggs. The most recent case involved a 10 year old girl from Cambodia. After 5 days she was admitted to the hospital and after 2 days in intensive care she died (Zimmer 2012). The article states that treatment for H5N1 varies depending on your symptoms but generally can be treated with Tamiflu or Relenza to lessen the severity. These medications must be taken within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms for them to be effective. Typically with any virus the best treatment is a lot of fluids to help the virus run its' course more quickly. There have been cases of Bird Flu reported in Asia, Africa, Europe, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Pacific and near the East.

The Bird That Spoke

...Christian Woodruff American lit. October 15, 2015 Ms. McDaniel The Bird That Spoke The Famous novel “The Raven” written by Edgar Allen Poe deals with a man sitting in his chambers mourning and contemplating the death of his wife Lenor. Out o the night sky flys a raven. Which in some cases stands for the death bird, or in some cases death its self is on it’s way. So… every time the narrator would ask the bird something it says “never more”, and that partially drives the narrator insane. But not only that, he’s fascinated that the bird speaks. Some of other qualities that drive him crazy is himself and thought of Lenore coming back to him. The actual raven plays a huge a factor because, The Raven is not just a bird. It is the representation of death, the loss of Lenore, the loss of the soul of the narrator. It only speaks one word--"Nevermore." And that is the answer to every question the narrator asks. It speaks words of wisdom only (perched upon the Bust of Pallas), letting the speaker know that it is always there, much like the memory of Lenore, even though he is representing her loss. While it is a heartbreaking reminder, it also teaches a lesson that one cannot dwell on death, but must come to terms with the loss, and move on. When the story opens up the narrator is sitting in his chambers alone. When death takes a loved one its never good to be by your self because, at the end of the day there still dead and time still goes on. The narrator...

A Bird

...The masked shrike (Lanius nubicus) is a bird in the shrike family, Laniidae. It breeds in southeastern Europe and at the eastern end of the Mediterranean, with a separate population in eastern Iraq and western Iran. It is migratory, wintering mainly in northeast Africa. Although it is a short-range migrant, vagrants have occurred widely elsewhere, including northern and western Europe. It is the smallest member of its genus, long-tailed and with a hooked bill. The male has mainly black upperparts, with white on its crown, forehead and supercilium and large white patches on the shoulders and wings. The throat, neck sides and underparts are white, with orange flanks and breast. The female is a duller version of the male, with brownish black upperparts and a grey or buff tone to the shoulders and underparts. The juvenile has grey-brown upperparts with a paler forehead and barring from the head to rump, barred off-white underparts and brown wings part from the white primary patches. The species' calls are short and grating, but the song has melodic warbler-like components. The masked shrike's preferred habitat is open woodland with bushes and some large trees. It is less conspicuous than its relatives, avoiding very open country and often perching in less exposed locations. The nest is a neat cup built in a tree by both adults, and the clutch is normally 4–6 eggs, which are incubated by the female for 14–16 days until hatching. The chicks are fed by both parents until they......

Lady Bird Johnson

...Thomas 1 Lady Bird (Claudia Alta Taylor) Johnson: The Emergence of a Public First Lady with Private Influence “The Evolution of the role of First Lady in America during the past half century has been….almost as dramatic as the expansion of the Role of the Chief Executive.” [1] Katie Louchheim in the March 1964 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal observed this phenomenon. The most significant development was the power acquired by the first lady through her position as a public figure: “Regardless of her distaste for public life, her role can no longer be a private one; she acquires indirect power when her husband takes the oath of office as President of the United States.”[2] In the Era of 1964-1977 the role of the first lady began to transform from one of a political celebrity to the first lady as a Political savvy activist. One of the First Ladies during this era instrumental in the emergence of the first lady as a proactive political activist was Lady Bird (Claudia Alta Taylor) Johnson, wife of former President Lyndon B. Johnson. Through exploring Lady Bird’s roles as a wife, mother, conservationist, businesswoman, philanthropist and First Lady, one will further understand how her influences and actions transformed the role of the modern First lady and how she used her platform to eventually transform not only cities and states but an entire nation well after her role as First lady. In order to fully understand Lady Bird...

Early Bird Catches the Worm

...Amber S. Grayer 6/12/13 English “Early bird catches the worm” I. Health and wellness II. Career and employment promotions III. Educational endeavors Many people have often heard the phrase “The early bird catches the worm.” In defining this phrase it can be determined that the earlier a person develops interest and pursue the challenges involved in that interest the more beneficial it can be to that individual. Three common areas of interest where the earl bird can excel are in health and wellness, career and employment promotions, and educational endeavors. The earlier you start something the better the chances of succeeding. This is true in every sphere and every phase of life, be it health, studies, or be it business. There are numerous benefits of taking the head start. Regardless of what disease or illness one has or thinks about, there are various benefits to having an early diagnosis, or at least a diagnosis on the first trip to the doctor. One of the biggest advantages of being diagnosed early rather than late is that it allows you to know what is wrong providing a peace of mind. If the diagnosis is a major one it allows for treatment to begin. Some diseases, if caught early enough, allow you to be completely cured. In cancer and other progressive diseases early diagnosis can mean that the disease is not given the opportunity to spread to other organs or infect the rest of your body. Knowledge is power.
