The Dean Scream

While attending the Alumni Lecture last week was the first that I have heard of both Jeb Bush and Howard Dean. I have been aware of the presidential campaigns in 2004 and many presidential actions taken by former president George W. Bush; but was still unaware of any substantial information from either Governor. After listening to the Alumni Lecture I only gained knowledge of viewpoints from questions that were asked from a small number of Northern Kentucky University students. I asked a classmate about Howard Dean and besides being the former governor of Vermont, what is Howard Dean known for? In response was “the Dean scream.”

Howard Dean served as Vermont governor in the years 1991-2003 and then ran for democratic presidential nomination in 2004. Dean is eminent for the enthusiastic yelp or "scream" that he demonstrated at an Iowa speech during his campaign known as the Dean scream. Many believe the negative publicity received after “the Dean scream” that is was the ultimate reason to why Dean’s political campaign had lost, after he failed to win only the support of one state (Vermont) during the primaries (“Howard Dean”).

In the beginning Dean was ahead in the polls and a victory look promising. What went wrong? Dean’s presidential campaign soared to exceed fundraising records for a Democratic presidential primary; and his campaign was widely known for its extensive outreached to voters through the internet which was a great key and leading factor during 2004 (“Howard Dean”). However, was it “the Dean scream” that was way over exaggerated by the media; that eventually took a negative effect on the public? The “scream” is still mocked by several comedians in the business, such as Dave Chappelle who has made Dean into a laughing stock. Some may believe that the cause to why Dean in the end failed was due to “the Dean scream” and others…...

I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream

...I Have No Mouth, and I must Scream is a story about a supreme computer essentially designed by humans to fight wars. This, however, backfired on the humans. They had made this computer into an all knowing, all powerful, and all being thing. Something like a god, according to the five humans in the story. This mastermind computer, completely abolished human kind, keeping only five alive for over a hundred years just for its own amusement. AM does sadistic and revengeful things to these five humans. Ted, the narrator of the story, thoroughly describes the events that take place in the story. He tells that the five survivors, including himself, been trapped for over a hundred years. They were kept alive but for all five of them dying would've been a better option. Am kept them alive just to torment them. Throughout the story Ted and the other four humans, Benny, Nimdok, Ellen, and Gorrister decide to travel to some ice caves where they think they'll find something to eat. They go through a lot of hardships in their journey. AM tortures them and for it, it's all just a never ending game. In the end, they all end up killing each other and Ted is the last one alive. AM was furious, however, he couldn’t do anything about it. He couldn’t revive them. This made him take out all his anger on Ted, converting him into a big chunk of jelly. This, it did so that Ted wouldn’t try and kill himself in any way possible. One theme that I found to be relevant in the story is...

Only serving one full term, he also was under heavy scrutiny and the only President to resign from office. His resignation came before his inevitable impeachment from Congress. With the resignation of his Vice President Spiro Agnew (in 1973 because of bribes and kickbacks; Brinkley 2007) he was also forced to “come clean” in his scandals about the Watergate office building in Washington D.C. The Watergate scandal was when five men from Nixon’s re-election committee broke into the Democratic Party headquarters on June 17, 1972. Nixon was soon accused of “covering up” the scandal and refusing to turn over evidence subpoenaed by the Supreme Court ("Impeachment History" 2007 Pearson Education). The Beginnings As the 36th Vice President under Dwight D. Eisenhower (1952-1960), Nixon a Republican was defeated in the 1960 Presidential election by John F. Kennedy. He continued to work as a Republican leader throughout the 60’s and worked his way to the forefront...

...Millan v. Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. Plaintiff: Maria Millan Defendant: Miguel Millan, Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. Appellant: Maria Millan Appellee: Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. Trial court winner: Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. Lower appellate winner: Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. Winner of this decision: Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. Facts: Miguel Millan was an employee of Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. His mother, Maria Millan, opened two brokerage accounts at her son’s place of business. During a three year time frame, Miguel Millan took $287,000 from his mother’s account without her permission. As a result, Maria Millan sued both her son and the company for unauthorized transactions and negligence. Plaintiff’s theory: Miguel Millan was not an authorized user of the accounts and should be responsible for damages. The company did not adhere to its own written policy at a time where a check for a large sum was written, thus they should also be responsible. Defendant’s theory: The money was taken over a three year time period, so the plaintiff should have been aware of the issue sooner. Legal issue: Was Dean Witter Reynolds responsible for discovering the fraud on the account? Holding of the court: Dean Witter Reynolds was partially responsible for the incidents to the tune of 15% of her damages. My thoughts: I think this decision was unfair to Maria Millan. She trusted her son Miguel to take proper care of her accounts, although I see this situation...

The Scream House

...Daisy was a beautiful young woman of 25 year old. She was having a wonderful day; an amazing ray of light shone through the window. “This is a brilliant Friday,” she said to herself. She looked at the clock: it was about to strike 12 midday. Daisy was getting dressed and putting on her bright white t-shirt. She was going to meet her loving friend at the old, desolate church. As she was walking downstairs trying to do up her sea blue jeans, the clock struck noon. Dong. Daisy suddenly fell and tumbled down the stairs. She struggled to get up and she fell about like a rag doll. She stumbled against the shining window and looked outside. Daisy turned around because of the noise she heard on the window pane. Lighting flashed across it. At that moment she saw an old, dead-looking, oak tree struck by lighting. She was heartbroken because she had seen that tree grow from when it was young. From the corner of her blazing blue eyes, she saw the letters D.…E….A….T….H in bold red underneath the tree. Daisy went out of her mansion to a desolate church, where she was going to meet her friend David, a childhood friend. She felt the breeze against her innocent, pale face. She started to tiptoe as she got closer to the old church. A stronger breeze cooled her face and made her feel uncomfortable; strange thoughts started coming into her mind. Silence, she started to feel dizzy and nearly fell down but suddenly, her friend arrived. “Daisy, Daisy” he shouted but she didn’t move.......

The "Scream"

...The Scream is a classic art piece. This piece is classic because of how simple it is, yet how effective it is at evoking emotions in the viewer, particularly with its unease and fear. It's a striking piece because of its abstract nature. The lack of details leaves much to the imagination. Why is the figure screaming? Where are they? Who are they? They seem to be on a bridge, but even that much is vague. Why are there other people, seemingly calm in the background? This piece can be the topic of endless debate. Additionally, as we cannot hear the scream, this seems to add yet another level of eeriness to this picture. The figure to me seems to be Munch, himself, he’s portraying himself in an uncomfortable situation that happens in everyday life for everyone but he’s fueling the emotion right now. Munch is using art to portray his feelings towards a certain situation, it cries out in his painting because there is a lot of angst, hurt and pain through the scream. The background of the picture looks very calm and eerie, almost as if death is approaching the figure or something in its life. There is an array of colors that go from warm to dreary that add tension to the picture depicting change in passion. The ships are coming in to wash away the weak. They’re sitting in the sunset waiting for the right time to move in, do the job and move out. The figures in the back are glum because the screamer isn’t keeping this a secret; it’s just not affecting any of the other...

Character Analysis of Dean Winchester

...Anna Prioletti Professor Watts English 102 A24 January 20, 2013 Through the Eyes of Dean Winchester: On the Road and On the Hunt In my favorite TV show, Supernatural, one of the protagonists and my favorite character is Dean Winchester, a certainly very round character. The series begins in Lawrence, Kansas with the demonic death of Dean’s mother Mary. Consequently he, his brother Sam, and his father John are thrust into the world of the supernatural. John becomes obsessed with hunting the evil he encounters and ultimately tracking down the demon that killed Mary. As Dean grows, he learns more and more about hunting, weaponry, and the supernatural creatures that haunt this world. Due to circumstance, he is forced to grow up at an early age as he helps his father and fills the maternal role for Sam. Dean is such a standout and memorable character to me because of his never-failing selflessness, fierce protective nature, and emotionally complex mind. Throughout the show, it is easy to see how selfless Dean is. In his mind, family always comes first no matter the consequences or what may happen to him. Growing up moving from place to place with his hunter father and young brother, Dean learns family is all he has. He and his father had a militaristic relationship in that Dean did whatever he was told and never questioned anything or argued. He put aside any dreams or aspirations he may have had to stick with his dad and help him get revenge while also...

Dean Foods vs. Dutch Lady Milk Industries

...Kimberley Brown Joe Gogel / WW Research Paper September 22, 2011 Dean Foods vs. Dutch Lady Milk Industries The dairy industry will be our point of interest as we look at two very different companies in two different countries. Dean Foods is located within the United States, and Dutch Lady is located in Malaysia. This analysis will look at both sets of financial statements for 2009 and see how they compare. There will be many different variables that will play into how these financial statements measure up to each other. Dean Foods production began in 1976 and is part of a larger organization called Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar. We will only be looking at the financial statements for Dean Foods out of this organization. Dutch Lady's incorporation began in 1963 and is also a part of a larger organization called Royal Friesland Campina. With this organization we will only be looking at the financial statements for Dutch Lady. By taking two dairy organizations that are small parts of larger corporations, it might seem to make the companies appear to be more of an "apples to apples" comparison. The two companies that we are looking at in 2009 are both publicly traded on the stock market. Dean Foods can be found on the New York Stock Exchange, while Dutch Lady would be found on Bursa Malaysia, the local stock exchange in Malaysia. (www.dutchlady.com.my) As we look at the stock market data from 2009, we learn some interesting facts about both of these...

...------------------------------------------------- Irish Neutrality: Sacred Cow or Pious Wish? Given the current controversy surrounding Irish neutrality and the use of Shannon Airport by American troops we, as Irish citizens, have every right to be concerned about where we stand on the question of neutrality. After all it is a treasured ‘sacred cow’ of the Irish Constitution. Or is it? A look at the record shows that, during World War II, Fianna Fail was not only a ‘slightly constitutional party’ but Ireland was also a slightly neutral country! | Crashed "Liberator" aircraft, Co. Donegal, 1943 | 'The focal point of the war against England and the one possibility of bringing her to her knees is in attacking sea communications in the Atlantic ' ,said Karl Donitz, Grand Admiral, German U-boats. For him, things were looking good. In December 1939, the opening year of World War 2, German submarines operating together with planes and surface raiders, accounted for 754,000 tons of Allied shipping losses. This represented 99.6 per cent of all shipping sunk in 1939. At this point in the war Britain had less than 3 weeks supply of wheat; stocks of many other commodities such as sugar had fallen to under 6 weeks supply. A solution had to be found, and quickly.

History of the case Trial Court: Dean Witter won. The broker was found 85% liable and the firm was found to be 15%. Lower appellate court: Dean Witter won. Overall winner: Decision upheld, the broker was found 85% liable and the firm was found to be 15% Facts: Maria Millian sued both her son and Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. for negligence, gross negligence, conversion, and breach of fiduciary duty. Maria Millian opened two brokerage accounts with Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. with her son. Her son Miguel forged her signature on an account application form and opened the account in her name. Miguel began to steal money from his mother’s account which totaled about $287,000. Trial court directed a verdict for Dean Witter on issues of vicarious liability. They found Dean Witter is 15% liable and Millan is 85% responsible due to not discovering the fraud sooner. Plaintiff’s theory: Miguel and Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. stole money from Maria Millian by deceiving her. Because Miguel opened fraudulent accounts in the name of Maria Millian and wrote checks payable to cash, and because the company did not verify the signatures, Millian sued for negligence, gross negligence, conversion, and breach of fiduciary duty.

Scream 4

...Wes Craven’s Scream 4 was seen by many viewers as yet another repetitive sequel in a franchise where “there didn’t seem to be much life left” (Whitty). According to reviewers, the opening scene of the film seemed to show this very well. The “flashes of wit in the opening film-within-a-film-within-a-film sequence” (Hale) displays the fact that this is the fourth film in the sequel and that each film is fairly repetitive in basic plot. Most reviewers seemed pretty underwhelmed with the plot but liked all of the murders and chase scenes. They felt that it was very predictable and justifying itself. “Sequels don’t know when to stop” (Schwarzbaum). “Existing in a self-contained universe, Scream 4 is its own remake (Screamake), sequel (shriekquel), parody and critique” (Corliss). Gale Weathers’ book The Woodsboro Murders becomes a film franchise called Stab that is “modeled after Sidney Prescott’s fictional life within the film” (Legel). This franchise and even the original series of Scream films are seen by many reviewers as extremely Meta, or self-referential, within the Scream films. “Scream 4 should be subtitled That's So Meta, so pervasive is the movie's habit of commenting on itself” (Travers). In the Stab franchise in Scream 4 the “new Ghostface is mimicking the sequence of killings in the original series” (O’Hehir). Many reviewers felt these Stab films continued the horror in Woodsboro instead of letting the town, and victims, recover from it. Another aspect that almost...
