In the ancient Western World, nature of society, the family, government and politics, religion, ideals and values of that period were all facing great changes. Thus, there were many specific people and things emerging in that special period. "ANTIGONE" and "The King is Dancing" are two wonderful videos which can show those changes in ancient Western World.
First of all, I will talk about the "ANTIGONE". It is a video that can give us some information of ancient Greek. Polyneices and Eteocles, two brothers leading opposite sides in Thebes' civil war, have both been killed in battle. Creon, the new ruler of Thebes, has declared that Eteocles will be honored and Polyneices disgraced. The rebel brother's body will not be sanctified by holy rites, and will lay unburied to become the food of carrion animals. Antigone and Ismene are the sisters of the dead brothers. Antigone wants to bury Polyneices' body, in defiance of Creon's edict. Ismene refuses to help her, fearing the death penalty, but she is unable to dissuade Antigone from going to do the deed by herself. A Sentry enters, fearfully reporting that the body has been buried to Creon. When, Creon knows Antigone do that, he is very angry, and imprisons Antigone in a cave. Antigone is fiancee of Creon's son. Therefore, his son kills himself after he begged his father but did not success. Creon's wife knows her son's dead feels very sad, and kills herself, too. At that time, Creon blames himself for everything that has happened, and, a broken man, he asks his servants to help him inside. The order he valued so much has been protected, and he is still the king, but he has acted against the gods and lost his child and his wife as a result. The Chorus closes by saying that although the gods punish the proud, punishment brings wisdom.
From this story, we can see in the ancient Greek, religion took over really…...

This opens the door to educating employees and allowing everyone to understand a new challenge from a few of the biggest names within your industry. • Small businesses are getting to be a great deal more productive as a result of video conferencing. Fortunately they are becoming stronger than ever before by studying under big names within their industry that they wouldn’t otherwise be in a position to study on. You may even start getting paid to conference with other people when you have something worthwhile to talk about. Better Engagement Video conferencing also enables a small company to conduct more meetings and touch more potential customers. While someone who travels to meet with prospective clients may only be able to see one or two in a day, efficient use of video conferencing allows for that same person to meet with several customers in a given day. Video conferencing gives a small business the opportunity to create the personal connection generated from meeting face to face with customers while being in another part of the country or even the world. Communicating via telephone simply does not allow for that same connection to be made on a personal level that can be achieved when you are seeing the people you are talking too.

Is Video Marketing Replacing Print Marketing or Are They Two Complementary Communication Tools Which Can Co-Exist?

...Recently, an ad in a leading national daily caught my eye. It was for a newly launched automobile from India’s largest automobile company. What set it apart from a hundred other ads in the newspaper was a petite matrix barcode placed at one corner. As the ad invited me to experience a ‘whole new world’, I could almost envision in my head what the advertising world would look like in the near foreseeable future. Advertising has and will always be one of the most important aspects of marketing; constantly changing and evolving over the years. Moving from print, TV and radio ads we have recently, in the last decade or so, seen the rise of internet as a medium for marketers to showcase their products and services. The rise of the internet saw marketing grow from mere printed advertisements to more appealing video advertisements online. Now, with technology advancing at such unfathomable rates, we are now moving towards what is being called ‘integrated marketing’. What I ‘experienced’ that day was integration of different aspects of marketing to provide a wholesome experience to the consumer. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. From simple videos being played as one focuses the camera on barcodes to an almost-real experience with Augmented Reality systems, we are drifting towards being a world where the physical and digital worlds will merge seamlessly to engage the consumer in every aspect of his life. Neither video marketing nor print marketing have the wherewithal to......

... from American authors like Mark Twain. The sharing of ideas brought about some of the best literary works in history. All of the evidence put forth in Rip! suggests that appropriation makes our culture better because we are not being restricted with our creativity. Brazil’s culture minister stated that “nothing comes from creation, everything comes from something else”. The sharing of ideas or appropriation allows ordinary citizens to level the playing field with corporate giants. With appropriation, barriers set forth by big companies can be broken down so people can be free to express themselves creatively. The intertextual conversations between these two texts show that they care deeply about the rights of people to be able to appropriate from whichever source they want. This benefits our culture because our art reflects our culture and we should have all the resources to better our culture. Works Cited RIP! A Remix Manifesto. Dir. Brett Gaylor. EyeSteelFilm, 2010.

The two main sides of this debate are; egalitarian’s who believe there are no role differences in gender to authority or teaching in the church biblically. The complementarian view also known as the traditional view holds that men have a position of authority before God in church teaching and authority in the church and home governing. James Beck gathers four New Testament scholars two for each side on the issue and sets out to show case two arguments for each side and room for rebuttal in consideration of the New Testament scripture dealing with woman in ministry. With my own view being that of a soft complementation; women have a role in teaching and...

...Video Case: Constraint Management at Southwest Airlines Question 1: Analyze Southwest’s passenger boarding process using the Theory of Constraints. Southwest Airlines is an airline company that has set industry benchmarks of having the best turnaround ratios, in an industry where lead time during different operations is very time consuming. Southwest currently boasts a rapid gate-turnaround of 25 minutes or less, and it demonstrates how attention to activities pertaining to ground operations (including cleaning of the aircraft, fuelling and flight preparation) can help the company in being so operationally efficient. Customers rave about low fares, exceptional customer service, and the biggest competitive advantage that Southwest has over its competitors is its’ ability to have a lack of assigned seating that allows customers to choose where they can sit on the plane. Having a turnaround of 25 minutes or less brings about potential areas of bottlenecks; for instance if wheelchair assistance is required for passengers, a bottleneck might arise that may hinder the turnaround time of 25 minutes. Hence, operations managers at Southwest need to carefully evaluate the current processes in order to achieve better efficiency and reach turnaround times even lower than 25 minutes. The Theory of Constraints is a systematic management approach that focuses on actively managing those constraints that impede a firm’s progress towards its goal. Southwest Airlines currently wants to make...

Afghan Documentary Video Review

...The title derives from a genuine conviction of General John R. Allen remarking what he envisioned the Afghanistan war legacy to be: ‘‘Afghan forces defending Afghan people and enabling the government of this country to serve its citizens. This is victory, this is what winning looks like, and we should not shrink from using these words.’’ Directed by the award winning journalist Ben Anderson, you quickly realizse that the title is used with great irony revealing the trulye despondent state of the country, itsher corrupt leaders and the war battered civilians that were cast innocently into this mess. Upon Rresearch preparation ing for this review involved I watchinged several other pieces covering the battle against the Taliban in Afghanistan. The central purpose of those war-documentaries has usually been to give the viewers some sense of what a raw state of war feels like and the gritty situations in which that the soldiers are immersed. have to immerse themselves in. ‘This is what winning looks like’ has little of that, instead Anderson directs his gaze at the Afghan army and police who will ultimately be responsible for holding back the fort fromfrom the line against what the US sees as the scourge of the Taliban. This unique perspective which peers into the future displays the long-lasting effectiveness of terrorist organization of the Taliban’s capacity . With the official withdrawal of US and allied troops scheduled for late 2014, the time available to sand of...

Music Video Review

...Music Video Review The music video of Thriller by Michael Jackson is directed by John Landis and published in 1983. It successfully promotes the song and the artist at that time. The short film is approximately thirteen minutes in length with around 250 shots, in which it uses various shots and editing techniques to present more than one storylines. The images and movements of camera also correspond well with the mysterious but fun tone of the song. In the first scene of the music video, we see a long continuous shot of a moving car in the forest. The first scene uses the sound of the nature to draw the audience in the story. As the car approaches the camera, the video cuts to a medium shot of Michael and a girl. Their car is out of gas. After their brief conversation, the editor directly cuts to their lower bodies walking in the forest. In this scene, we continue to hear the sounds of nature and the steps they take. The camera moves gradually to their upper body. The editor cuts between close-ups of the two characters’ faces during their conversation. After when Michael says he is different, the video directly cuts to the moon. We hear music for the first time in the video to show that something is going to happen. Michael starts to transform to a werewolf. The editor cuts between his transformation and the girl’s reaction. The camera moves closer and closer to the two characters and the editor then cuts between close-ups of Michal’s body parts and the girl’s screaming...

Review of C.P.Snow's Two Cultures Essay

...C.P. Snow's essay “Two Cultures” talks about the growing gulf between the scientific community and that of the humanities, or more specifically, the literary community. Being a scientist himself, who later turned writer, he had access to both “cultures” and was able to observe them. He postulates the existence of two “cultures” - based not just on the fields of practice the two, but observed differences in both behaviour and beliefs. He attributes it to “mutual incomprehension- sometimes (particularly among the young) hostility and dislike, but most of all lack of understanding” and to the super specialization within disciplines because of the education system to the point that the two have nothing in common any more. Does this so-called divide exist at all? We may examine history and notice that they go hand in hand, one can not exist without the other. The sciences are after all disciplines devoted to the pursuit of answers to philosophical questions, though these roots are often forgotten. By common misconception there is the clear dividing line between the two, and a definite hierarchy. Literature, and by extension, social science, is said to be inferior, subjective, faulty and devoid of fact, but many fail to think of the converse in relation with natural science. He describes this growing divide, the split onto “two cultures”. Scientists, he says, are a community, even in the anthropological sense – they have a set of beliefs, whether political, theological, economical...

Hius 222 Video Review 1

...Video Review 1 November 01, 2015 HIUS 222, “World War II In Color: Total War,” (A&E Television Networks), 47:10 mins. This documentary was designed to show what World War II was like in a color format. Most videos that have been produced were in black and white, and even though you get an idea of what the destruction and devastation was like, nothing will prepare you for seeing the devastation on all sides of the war in a color video format. “World War II in Color: Total War” is an unbiased documentary that was aired on the A&E Network in the year 2000. This documentary was put together using diary entries, letters, and interviews of those who lived through World War II on all sides of the war. Some of the diary entries were horrifying to listen to, but when set to video of the event it really brought home how horrible this war was to live through by the civilians living in hard-hit cities. Mary Borg was a seventeen year old Jewish girl who lived in the Warsaw Ghetto and wrote in her diary about the great number of children left to be orphans because their parents were killed and how this affected them. She talked about how malnourished they were and how they looked like monkeys instead of children. These words were chilling in themselves, but to view the video of these small children ranging in ages of three years old and up made you want to cry. This documentary also highlights the thoughts of soldiers fighting this...
