ENG225: Introduction to Film

This question really gets you thinking of when you were a child and how you watched movies and compare it to how it is done today. First I don’t think anything can replace the theater experience. But even the theater experience has changed with technology; for example I remember watching regular movies as a child, as a teenager I experienced 3D and then we had THX and high definition. Now there is the 4D experience with D-Box seats. So movie production has stepped up their game and really increased the quality of movies.

Outside of the theater I can say we have seen the greatest improvement. Movies can be streamed to phones, PCs, tablets, and even television sets from a variety of medias. Some of these medias are Hulu, Netflix, Blockbuster, Direct TV, Comcast, Apple TV, Roku, WD TV Live Plus and Sony SMP-N100. Due to the demand to see movies when and where you want it the size and quality has change of the files. For example in the past to download a movie you needed at least 4GBs of space or on a DVDR; now I can watch a movies on my 8GB iPod Nano and this have over 3000 songs and apps on it. Additionally, it doesn’t take as long to stream/buffer the movies. I also think movies has gotten shorter compared to movies in the past. “From 1930 to 1960, most films averaged 2 to 4 minutes per scene, and many scenes ran 4 minutes or more… In films made after 1961 most scenes run between 1.5 and 3 minutes. The practice reflects the contemporary screenwriter’s rule of thumb that a scene should consume no more than two or three pages (with a page counting as a minute of screen time). The average two-hour script, many manuals suggest, should contain forty to sixty scenes. In more recent years, the tempo has become even faster. All the Pretty Horses (2000) average 76 seconds per scene, while Singles (1992) averages a mere 66…...

Evolving Planets

...The “Evolving Planet Exhibit” took me on a journey through 4 billion years of life on earth, from the Precambrian singled cell organisms to the Mesozoic towering dinosaurs and extended hominid human family. The unique fossils, concrete interactive displays and recreated sea and terrestrial landscapes help the compelling story of evolution- the single process that connects everything that has ever lived on earth. Evolution of life on Earth occurred 4.5 billion years ago, the Precambrian Eon. This Eon makes up ninety percent of Earth’s history. Organic compounds were the building blocks on Earth; two theories exist of how these forms came to be; they may have formed on Earth, through underwater thermal vents, or carried to Earth through meteorites. What followed, were prokaryotes, single celled organisms, and eukaryotes, multi-cellular organisms. The development of prokaryotes caused transformations to Earth, through the process of photosynthesis, which allowed for the development of oxygen in our atmosphere. Through Eukaryotes, natural selection was possible, due to genetic variation. During the Paleozoic era, which occurred 543 million years ago, there was an explosion of life, which led to the wide variation of life that we see today. Throughout this period there was a significant outburst in marine life. As time evolved, skeletons had evolved structurally, which allowed for larger bodied organisms to grow. Their chemical composition includes the minerals calcium and...

The Ever to Evolving in the Male

...William Hathorn Philosophy 102 10/18/12 The ever to Evolving in the Male The male role model has changed dramatically, from a man who once would give anything for his family's while being, to a man who would abandon his obligation as a father and husband. Usually with time things change for the better, but with this subject we see ourselves approaching what seems to be a endless pit of husbands, fathers, workers, and role models. who do not take responsibilities for their actions as much as they once did. It is a travesty and time for a change, the change for the better. It is the 1970s, men are going to work to provide for their families. Coming home each evening to put the bread on the table. The sole purpose was to take care of his wife, by always being faithful and helping her though any tough times that may arise. Today we find ourselves shaking their heads at what some men have become. It hurts to see the husband who cannot sustain a lifestyle that once was provided by earlier generations. Every day we hear of men who were too lazy to work a 9 to 5 job, even if it means that the providing safety and security for the woman he loves. But rather, in some cases, claim to love the woman, that he mentally and physically abuse is on a daily basis. A innocent child, brought into world, where there once was a loving father there to care for them, now a mother who is forced to play the role of two parents. There is a huge increase of men not taking care of......

The Evolving Role of Government in Education

...The Evolving Role of Government in Education The Evolving Role of Government in Education Kenneth Davis Grand Canyon University: EDU310 June 5, 2011 The Evolving Role of Government in Education The United States governments play an ever evolving role in education. They are responsible for many of the exceedingly particular rules and regulations that drive schools and districts to change. All of these legislative rulings are supposedly made to help America’s youth, but some of them are more idealism than realistic. This essay will describe some of the many cases and laws that have evolved or have had an impact on U.S. education. The United States educational system began on the laws and moral of the religion. In colonial times schools and religion went hand in hand. All of this country’s first schools and educational systems were the product of some particular religious sect. The first schools were used to educate the colonist children but the religious tensions and sectarian rivalries among early colonists had also used schooling to advance their ideals. Particularly the Universities such as Harvard founded in 1636, and Yale founded in 1707 were founded as seminaries to train future clergymen. Although this type of thought about how schools should be run still is around today, there has been much government involvement to change that stat quo. In cases such as Everson v. Board of Education, and Illinoisex rel. McCollum v. Board of......

Evolving Tactics of Internet Control

...Evolving Tactics of Internet Control Is there anything more important than our Human Rights as citizens of the United States? No one has had much concern over our human rights and privacy involving the Internet until now. “The Internet has transformed the way in which people obtain news, conduct business, communicate with one another, socialize, and interact with public officials.” But the growing concern over new improved technology that many authoritarian states have taken various measures to filter, monitor, or in other words obstructing our rights to freedom of speech online. The Freedom House report on “Evolving Tactics of Internet Control And Push For Greater Freedom,” explains why and how this is happening to the United States and many other authoritarian States. Freedom House goes into detail about obstructing the peoples rights and analyzes the reasons on why this is becoming a concern among many. The reason the “Evolving Tactics of Internet Control” is becoming such a popular topic in the United States is the fact that this has been a huge concern in the Middle East. Which causes the United States reports to become concerned considering the U.S typically falls in line with the Middle East after awhile. They have brought this to the peoples intention to help illuminate and prevent the nature of these evolving threats and identify areas of growing opportunity. With that in mind Freedom House has conducted a comprehensive study of Internet freedom in 47 countries......

The Evolving Woman

...The Evolving Women The role women play in our society is and has been an ever-changing one, from mother to doctor to soldier and everything in between. With increasing standards and demands on them to be the one who keep’s the family grounded and together in a chaotic society that thinks none to highly of them or their rights as citizens. I chose to focus on women’s changing roles during the time period from 1865 through 1920 and then through 1920 to this present day. The reason I chose to focus on the women of our history is because this was a very unstable time in history, due to the changing status of minorities in the culture at this time due to the end of the Civil War and the impending revolution for women’s rights with the passage of the 19th amendment. Dating as far back as the early 1800's women’s roles were consistently being challenged and questioned, it was not so much the women’s rights marches of the 60's but it was the beginning of that revolution. During the early part of the 19th century women’s character was separated with four basic attributes: piety, purity, submissiveness, and domesticity. Even the foreign visitors to America during this period found fault in American male’s attitude towards women, they thought males treated women as inferiors and subjected women to double standards. "By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in law; that is, the very being and legal existence of the woman is suspended during marriage." This is......

Evolving a Team

...being a leader. There are different people that make up a team meaning that there are different strengths and weaknesses and performance levels that lie within each person and one person’s weakness just may be the next person’s strength. The next thing is that accountability is no longer something that lies with just one individual person but with a group as a whole collectively. Another thing that must be done for all groups is that the group must develop a purpose and with that purpose a mission to fulfill that purpose as well. One thing that takes place not only within the team but in everyday life and living is problem solving. This is something that becomes a part of life. One of the most important things to take in consideration when evolving into a team is the effectiveness of the group collectively. 2. Should Google's HR team members have been instructed ahead of time in the teamwork competencies in Table 11-3? Explain how it should have been done. The first thing would be to come to mutual agreement as to what the problem may be and to come up with an understanding of the situation and to figure out the importance of this problem and whether or not it should be escalated or not. Then the search for information that would be relevant to the situation would occur. As a team, everyone should be in one chord as to specify certain challenges and goals used and put in place to overcome these challenges. A team should also look to search for more strategies and resources......

Evolving Bpr from Art to Engineering

...DELIVERING RESULTS: EVOLVING BPR FROM ART TO ENGINEERING Richard J. Mayer, Ph.D., Associate Professor Department of Industrial Engineering Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas Paula S. deWitte, Ph.D., Executive Vice President Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. College Station, Texas Abstract This chapter presents an approach to BPR that is focused on achieving results from the first stages to implementation. The engineering approach presented utilizes an integrated set of methods applied incrementally. This allows BPR practitioners to more realistically approach a project; assess its impact, duration, and required budget; and mitigate the risks of failure. We present the approach as a phased BPR methodology along with methods, proven strategies, and tools To be published in a forthcoming book on Business Process Reengineering by Kluwer. 1 2 Evolving BPR from Art to Engineering we have worked with successfully at each phase. We present motivations for initiating a BPR effort that have been shown to result in successful cases for action. We present rationale for justifying change and a method for building a business case that includes the use of cost benefit analysis in formulating the justification rationale. An approach to planning for a BPR effort is presented that uses the same methods normally applied in the BPR process itself. We cover the issues associated with setting up a BPR project including: forming cross-functional teams, and selecting method and......

Evolving Concepts of Crew Resource Management

...Evolving Concepts of Crew Resource Management Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Evolving Concepts of Crew Resource Management The roots of Crew Resource Management training in the United States are usually traced back to a workshop, Resource Management on the Flightdeck sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1979 (Cooper, Lauber, & White, 1980). This conference was the outgrowth of NASA research into the causes of air transport accidents. The research presented at this meeting identified the human error aspects of the majority of air crashes as failures of interpersonal communications, decision making, and leadership. At this meeting, the label Cockpit Resource Management (CRM) was applied to the process of training crews to reduce "pilot error" by making better use of the human resources on the flightdeck. Many of the air carriers represented at this meeting left it committed to developing new training programs to enhance the interpersonal aspects of flight operations. Since that time CRM training programs have proliferated in the United States and around the world. Approaches to CRM have also evolved in the years since the NASA meeting (Helmreich, Merritt, & Wilhelm, 2001). CRM training is now used by all the major international airlines. A recent survey of International Air Transport Association affiliated airlines indicated that 96 per cent of respondents were running CRM courses. Over 60 per cent of these had been in......

Base on USA Toda's experience with print and online news, evaluate the long term potential of printed new and news paper publish industry. Do you believe; printed newspapers will continue to survive despite digital competition? I believe society is not moving towards becoming digital, but is already in the digital mainstream. Companies that don't have a website are already behind the digital evolution as customers don't call anymore to find out store hours but instead look toward the internet for the answer. We are a culture with expectations of instant gratification. Printed newspaper is dying due to its high costs and also the environmental concerns that consumers might have. . The digital age is already here and is forcing the advertiser to use to a different format. USA Today, like every other print publication, has multiple cultures to please. The......

Usa Today: Innovation in an Evolving Industry

...Richard Godfrey BMKT 6311 USA Today Case Study The newspaper publishing industry is one of the most rapidly evolving industries in the world today. Changing due to economic climate shift, consumer needs evolving, enhanced technology, and continuous competition; USA Today has been able to succeed. The publication raises the bar through innovation and value-added content to bolster their standing in the publishing world as “The Nation’s Newspaper” in hopes of staying continually relevant and standing out amongst the competition, ensuring the future of the USA Today brand. 1) When Gannett first debuted USA Today in 1982, the corporation took advantage of a multitude of opportunities in the marketing environment and secured a strong foothold in a market that already had several major players. The most impactful opportunity, in my opinion, is its format. In an attempt to stand out from the competition, USA Today developed a unique format of shorter pieces with photos, graphs, charts in order to address the needs of an audience other publications seemingly ignored. By creating a product high in form utility, the publication was able to distinguish itself and cater to an evolving market. Gannett also cited watching trends and evolution of news readers as part of the success. As society shifted to having typically shorter attention spans, yet still having a hunger for knowledge, Gannett capitalized on these trends with the updated format of USA Today targeted towards the......

Evolving Evolution

...EVOLVING EVOLUTION Bejarasco, Aubrey Jayl A. BS Biology IV April 21,2012 Earth: only habitat that sustains LIFE, where number and variety of plants is astonishing. How can we make sense of such a huge range of living organism? Holy bible, explain how this wonderful diversity came about as shown in the movie; how God created the Earth, how Adan came into life and how Eve was created from his ribs, as then God said to them: “go and multiply”. This was the Theory of Creation, but a hundreds of years later, a man was born to explain this astonishing diversity of life, which revolutionized the way everyone sees the world—Charles Darwin. On 1931, HMS Beagle, set off to tour around the world, on board was Charles Darwin, in his 5years journey he was amaze by the diversity he was able to witnessed, that in 1 day he was able to collect 69 different kinds of beetles, enough to disturbed the composure of entomologist’s mind. In addition to that, Darwin also noticed the distinction of plants and animals in the Galapagos Islands and Cape Verde Islands. There came the dilemma: “could it be that species were not fixed at all time, could it be in fact slowly change?” Problem of natural history: how could one species turn to one another? Key: only the fittest survive hence, “natural selection”. In a moment of insight he had solved the species question. Darwin illustrate this in his collection of birds which has same characteristic except their beaks of......

Evolving Practice

...Evolving Practice of Nursing and Patient Care Delivery Tara Lee Grand Canyon University: Trends and Issues in Today’s Health Care July 1, 2012 Dear Nurses, Currently, health care systems are undergoing a complete transformation to help better accommodate patients by providing them with affordable high quality care. These transformations are a direct result of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA), which includes several provisions to intertwine cost effective care with quality. Health cares current arrangement is fragmented, lacking individual responsibility for the coordination and quality of patient care. By designing inducements for integrated care delivery models and disbursing funds for coordination and quality care, the law is attempting to restore health cares resource allocation while rewarding quality of care over volume of care. Consequently, nurses must become adjusted to the reorganized health care system because they are intricate part patient care and outcomes, as well as being fundamental to the attainment of emerging patient-care delivery models (ANA, 2010). The purpose of the this letter is to explain how the practice of nursing is expected to shift and to also discuss the concepts of continuum of care, accountable care organizations (ACO’s) medical homes, nurse-managed health care clinics (NMHCs). PPACA recognizes the potential leader role for the advance practice registered nurse (APRN) in new integrated......

The Evolving Role of Government in Education

...Running Head: The Evolving Role of Government The Evolving Role of Government in Education Jennifer L Thompson Grand Canyon University: EDU-310 April 28, 2012 The Evolving Role of Government in Education Education in our public schools is very different than it was when the first schools were started. This is in part due to the changes in society, but also due to the changes in government control of our schools. Our founding fathers believed in the importance of education and many were involved with the creation of public education in America. Today, education is still a priority to most people in America. The fact that it is such a priority has brought about changes in the role of our government in the education system. Although education was a priority to our founding fathers, it was not mentioned in the original constitution. It is not mentioned in the initial Bill of Rights, either. However, the 10th Amendment states that the powers not delegated to the federal government “are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.” (Edmund Sass, 2012) This meant that the responsibility for public schools belonged to the individual states and not to the federal government. This allowed the individual states to set up their school systems in the manner that worked best for them. The schools ran in this manner for many years. Of course, with the different belief systems of the people in the different states, there......
