Within the current era of opulence excess and waste, the movie “WALL-E” expresses the urgent need for recycling and self preservation.

As a society we have lost preservation on the focus of mother earth. Our landfills are filled to an abundance and overflow of human waste that will never breakdown in our lifetime or our grandchildren’s lifetime. During our present society we have predicted an epidemic of obesity directly resulting in the need for instant gratification due to the internet. WALL-E (whose name stands for Waste
Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) is a cute, squat robot with droopy binocular eyes who is a roving trash compactor and, in fact, the last of this breed exposes the dangers to our society and mother earth in both of these instances. As depicted in WALL-E our societies wasteful nature created the earth as a waste dump. Once there was no more room on mother earth for the humans to cohabitate with the waste, the humans were forced to result to living on space ships. WALL-E was created in attempt to compact the waste for possible re-habitation of earth. In the process WALL-E not only discovers a long forgotten life form “the flower” he also discovers the long forgotten love and companionship of “EVE” (whose name stands for Extra-terrestrial Vegetation
Evaluator) who is a frictionless white pod with cathode-ray eyes who has been sent to earth to search for organic life. Although these two do not talk exactly, they hold hands and burble each other’s names. It is love at first heart beep. This part of the movie makes you realize there is still true love out there. We just have to keep looking for it. As instant gratification of the human society is portrayed in the movie by the grossly obese space bound colony of humans who have “evolved” into hilariously infantile technology-junkie couch potatoes with computer screens in their faces.
These individuals never deviate from the computer screens nor interact with one another without their computer screens, until one day one individual falls out of their chair. Upon that fateful day the realization for human conduct becomes paramount. The individuals realize they not only need to clean and save mother earth but to make changes within themselves in order to become successful manners of a personally interactive global society. Although, the human society has always wanted instant gratification I would like to believe that most of todays society is atleast trying to make mother earth better in one way or another.

Wall-E

...WALL-E Approximately seven hundred years in the future, the Earth is over-run with garbage and devoid of plant and animal life, the consequence of years of environmental degradation and thoughtless consumerism. The surviving humans are living on the spaceship Axiom after vacating Earth centuries earlier. Axiom is operated by a large corporation called Buy N Large, whose BnL logo appears even on the artificial sun visible from the ship's main concourse. The original plan was for humans to live in outer space for 5 years while cleaning robots ("WALL-Es" invented by Professor Simon) prepared Earth for recolonization. However, after seven hundred years, only one WALL-E (voice: Ben Burtt) remains. WALL-E spends his days compacting debris into solid blocks and building structures with them. He also collects some of the more interesting artifacts and keeps them in the garage he shares with a cockroach, his only friend. At night he watches Hello Dolly on VHS and dreams of having a hand to hold. Most of his finds are spare parts and electronics but one day he discovers a lonely plant. Not sure what it is, but recognizing that it needs soil and care, he picks it up and puts it in a dirt-filled old shoe. The next day, an enormous spaceship lands and deposits another robot, EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator, voice: Elissa Knight). WALL-E is immediately smitten and hopes to hold her hand, but EVE is quick to use her plasma cannon, which can blast a hole through anything....

Wall-E

...Mario Gonzalez Professor Stamp English 1B 16 March 2014 Wall-e We as humans have the ability to live our own lives without the use of constant technology. Even so we have become dependent on it to live our daily lives. Less than a century ago we lived without being so dependent upon technology and we can again. Not to say that we should abandon technology completely but we have become entirely too dependent. In the Pixar movie “Wall-e”, humans have destroyed the planet due to their lack of care for the environment. They then are regrettably forced into living in space on a ship called the Axiom because the planet is inhabitable. Wall-e is just one of many robots who have been created to help clean up the planet. The people on this ship have everything given to them and have no intentions of returning to Earth anytime soon. Although the movie does take the extreme route, it is a good depiction of how we are becoming more and more reliant on technology which could prove to be detrimental . In Wall-e every aspect of humans lives on the Axiom are consumed by technology. It tells them what to do and when to do it. They are waited on by the robots so that they don’t even have to walk or get up from their chairs at all. Their screens block themselves from the outside world and what is going on around them. They are sucked into their technology so much so that they have almost lost any contact with other humans at all. Even the simplest of tasks are done for them such as......

Analysis of Wall-E

...Analysis of Wall-E . For as little dialogue as there is in the film, Wall-E is an awesome movie which is evidenced by many of the awards it has won. Upon beginning to watch Wall-E, I did not expect an animated film to have such great meaning and address many of the societal issues it does in the film. The main issues Wall-E touches on are consumerism, technology, and environmental problems. The movie brings light to these issues by placing the setting in 2805 and showing the audience what these issues could be like hundreds of years down the road. Many of the readings we have done in class give reason to believe the Earth and civilization could become what it is in the movie Wall-E. The first societal problem brought to light in the film is environmental related issues. The first thing we see in the film are a bunch of stacks of garbage piles, sometimes bigger than skyscrapers. This undoubtedly ties into how we go about disposing of our garbage and sewage today. According to the article read in class called “Why Consumption Matters”, the average American in 1990 would throw out four to five pounds of garbage a day, while being responsible for 124 pounds of behind the scenes consumption. This behind the scenes consumption includes construction materials, fossil fuels, industrial materials, forest, and metals amongst others. We must also keep in mind that this is a 1990 figure, and that Americans consume significantly more in 2014. It is statistics like these that make......

Wall - E Reaction Paper

...The movie WALL-E is, on the surface, a cute movie about a robot (WALL-E) that is left on earth after humanity evacuated it when they polluted the earth, and left much waste behind. It is WALL-E's job to clean up the mess. However, after 700 years of this job, it has started to make him eccentric. He collects artifacts from earth, and places them in his house. One day a scout drone comes to earth from one of humanities spaceships. This robot is named EVE. It is on a mission to find life on earth. WALL-E falls in love with EVE. Soon eve finds a plant that WALL-E had stored in his home. EVE then returns to the spaceship, with WALL-E following her. Hijinks ensure, and humanity is eventually led back to earth with the help of WALL-E. They then begin to repopulate earth. However, if you look underneath the 'cute' layer, you will find many references to religious stories. The two I am going to discuss are the tower of Babel and Noah's arc. To begin with, I will note the similarities with the 'Noah's arc' story. I am sure you will be familiar with the story, so here is an outline. God tells Noah that the world will flood for 40 days and nights, and that he should build a large boat and round up two of every animal to survive the flood. Noah does so, and then after he is finished, the world floods, from a lot of rain. After 40 days, the rain stops. So Noah send out a dove, which is called 'eve' in some stories, to retrieve a twig from dry land. After it returns, Noah determines that......

Wall-E Reliance on Technology

...hear we are in the ‘age of technology’. It’s crazy how much technology we use on a daily basis. It has become so routine to have technology incorporated into our daily lives that we don’t realize how much we rely on it. Who would have thought Pixar’s animation Wall-E could have so much technological awareness incorporated into the plot. The director of Wall-E created this movie with a universal message of what will happen to our society over time if we do not stop relying on technology. Thousands of years have passed that we have lived with technology, and it has worked in our benefit in many circumstances. However, it has become an addiction, distraction and a nuisance to our society. Society craves the latest technology, and we want more. I will admit I can’t last without my cell phone. Unlike the past however, humans are buried in technology in which we depend on. Cavemen many years ago survived without technology; why is it now that we have become so reliant on it? Just as the passengers on the Axiom in Wall-E, we are controlled and driven by technology. But, what will society do if technology takes a turn for the worse and goes against us? In the film the robots on the Axiom turned against the passengers to assist Wall-E and Eve in saving the Earth. One-day robots could ultimately turn on society and we will be left with nothing to do. Technology is assisting society in becoming helpless and unable to fend for ourselves. Technology has also created a large impact on......

Wall-E: Sustainability Through Film

...probably won't be able to define sustainability, but they might recall seeing the movies A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, and Wall-E. In A Bug’s Life, the protagonist must save his colony from greedy human-like grasshoppers stealing their resources. Finding Nemo, shows the effects of the human footprint on tide pools through a father clownfish losing his son. Directed by Andrew Stanton, Wall-E (2008) also uses an anthropomorphistic story to highlight aspects of sustainability. The first sentence of the trailer for Wall-E, sets the story seven hundred years into the future when mankind has abandoned planet Earth and left it’s clean up in the hands of a machine. As the story is being introduced, the audience is shown an aerial view of Earth from outer space. It zooms into the dusty, brown planet, and we are introduced to Wall-E.  Standing for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class, Wall-E is the last robot alive from millions of machines whose purpose was to clean up the Earth after humans fled the mess they made. However, after introducing the main character, Wall-E, the trailer then dives into his relationship with his love interest Eve. This undermines the importance of the film’s ecological message by portraying it as a love story. Through its dramatization of excessive corporate control, iconography of relevant waste culprits, and somber cinematography, Wall-E actually serves as a social critique of consumer mentality and illuminates corporate effects on the environment. It......

Building defect will also reduce the value and the function of a building. There are many types of building defect such as cracking, dampness, spalling, peeling paint, insect or termite attack, corrosion, fungus stain and so on. These building defect can affect the performance and the appearance of the building. Building defect can occur either because of poor design, or low quality workmanship, or because the building was not constructed according to the design, or use of inferior materials. When a building facing defects, the causes of that defect have to identified before any remedial work can be undertaken to remedial it. Therefore, we are required to investigate the building defect of a building. We also have to identify the possible cause of the building defect which occur in that building.

Thin

...Thin Cylinder Summary/ Abstract Thin-walled pressure vessel provides an important application of the analysis of plane stress. Since their walls offer litter resistance to bending, it may be assumed that the internal forces exerted on a given portion of wall are tangent to the surface of the vessel. The resulting stresses on an element of the wall will thus be contained in a plane tangent to the surface of the vessel. In this experiment, we are going to determine the circumferential stress under open condition, and analysis of combined axial and circumferential stress. We propose to determine the stresses exerted on a small element of wall with sides respectively parallel and perpendicular to the axis of the cylinder. Because of axis symmetry of the vessel and its contents, it is clear that no shearing stress is exerted on the element. It can be seen that all strains are used to calculate stress. As it is not possible to measure all strains, these have to be computed on the basis of marginal conditions. With this experiment it is not possible to measure in particular longitudinal strain in the body and radian strain perpendicular to the surface. Initial stress at the surface must be zero, longitudinal stress is constant over the radius are the marginal conditions to obtain the solution. The average E value we obtain from graph was 64 GN/m2. with the help of the computer, the Poisson’s ratio, v =0.35 and the principal strains for the thin cylinder were also calculated......

Poetic Imagery and Political Realities

...Poetic Imagery and Political Realities Kathy Kubisty, Omar Contreras, Adolfo Arce University of Phoenix Eng/ 302 David Maker August 24, 2010 Poetic Imagery and Political Realities Poetry has been around for many centuries and the world has witnessed many fine artistic poem writers. Throughout this paper, the life of Robert Frost will be explained along with some of his outstanding poetry. We will discuss who he was, how Frost started in writing his poetry, and how some of his poems relate to what is happening in today's world. Robert Frost was named after the Southern General, Robert E. Lee. He was born on March 26, 1874, in San Francisco, California. Because his parents were a teacher and a journalist, he was always around books. He studied literature from William Shakespeare and poems from Robert Burns and William Wordsworth. Robert excelled in many topics in school such as history, botany, Latin, and Greek. Frost also played football and graduated top of his high school class. Robert Frost started writing poems at an early age. His first poem, “La Noche Triste” was published in his high school newspaper. Frost later enrolled in an Ivy League college in Hanover, New Hampshire. Robert Frost was not fond of the campus life so he quit college and started teaching while he was writing poetry. Frost got his first break as a poet in 1894 when the New York Magazine, “Independent” published his poem, “My Butterfly” for only 15 dollars. Robert Frost later in 1895 married...
