Seeing Behind the Smoke Screen 2

Bias this is the downfall that we face as people. As is seems everyone has the own agenda but clearly the smoke is not easy to blow past as we think. We have to give the logic to the misunderstanding of share or given information.

Seeing Behind the Smoke Screen 3

In the media now there is more bias then good information sharing. Many things that have come about are more bashing then informing. If we stand up and force more responsibility on those who publish this information it just might take a new spin for the better,

When asked how we might create creativity to problems that are present it might be simple. Breaking things down from major issues first. By doing this all of the disruption and confusion may start to diminish. Addressing the problem at the highest level will lead no room for questions. After taking it from the top then we can focus on responslability taken ownership for the work that you share. Not saying that we are looking to stop the in-depth research or writing but give the whole story with the truth. Creativity is not putting the media in a box but given the rules and making people understand the importance of equality. Change people perspective will not be easy but really it is worth the try. Not many people if they feel something is right will look at it from a different angle but this is needed when putting information that may change a person life.

If we do show the different approach to sharing information and given people the opportunity to see it from both side this may increase some curiosity. When people start to take an interest then then…...

Lcd Screens

...LCD Screens LCDs (liquid crystal display) are used in a wide range of products, from watches and digital clocks, to microwaves and laptop computers. Now what has made this technology so popular amongst consumers over the years , is the fact that they offer great advantages as compared to other display systems. Such as their lighter and thinner nature, as well as the ability to use less amounts of power. Now at first, the very name “liquid crystal” sounds a bit contradictory. How can any material be both a solid and a liquid? This is explained by the fact that the crystals in the LCD exist in a kind of a distinct middle ground between a solid form and liquid form, which gives them the movement and flexibility of a liquid, but can also let them remain in their place like a solid. So, technically they are not just one or the other. Furthermore, there are a large variety of liquid crystal substances, which can exist in many different phases, depending on the temperature and nature of that substance. The most important being the nematic phase, which is what makes LCDs possible. In the nematic phase, the liquid crystals are affected by electric currents, so in an LCD screen, those currents work at a microscopic level to control the amount of light that passes through the liquid crystal molecules that make up the moving layer of the screen, which is then placed in between clear glass panels. These currents also force the molecules (which are naturally twisted) to unwind or...

Seeing Is Believing

...he had borrowed money from his friends and had launched another company and since he had created a name in the industry, he got clients whom he had been servicing in the former company. He was soon back to his own self. I was happy for him but did not view him the way I had done all my life. My belief had been put to the test and it failed. I now understand that, depending on which blogs and magazines one reads, which television programs one watches and who one follows on Facebook, Twitter or any other social site, no one is perfect and no one is better than everyone (The Bridge maker). I now live my life believing what I want to and not swayed by the character of who is saying it or doing it.

Seeing and Blindness

...Thebes, and until the murderer is driven out of the town, the terrible plagues will continue haunting Thebes. After hearing the story, Oedipus resolves to solve the mystery himself and says that the murderer will be exiled even if it is a member of his own family. At this point, the reader is faced with irony, which he will better understand later in the story when he finds out that not only was the murderer in Oedipus’s family, but the murderer was indeed Oedipus. Not only does Sophocles use irony, but he also gives the reader the desire to better understand his seeing and blindness elements that are used throughout his drama. Oedipus Rex is filled with many surprises and some upsets but plenty of drama, irony, and entertainment. As one reads, he feels many different emotions, such as confusion, sadness, and then simply anger. Although one may not agree that blinding himself was the best idea, Oedipus’s reasoning behind his action is not quite as complicated if looked at from a simpler point of view. At the end of the story when Oedipus goes into his wife’s bedroom, he finds her hanging from a noose. Oedipus immediately begins to sob and runs to embrace his wife, but he then takes the pins that were holding her dress together and begins to poke at his eyes until blood is flowing from them. Knowing that he was the one who killed Laios and married his mother, Oedipus felt an enormous amount of guilt and embarrassment which led him to poke the pins in his own eyes which......

Cyber Bullying: Lurking Behind the Screens.

...Cyber bullying: Lurking behind the Screens. Mark Twain once said that “a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes”. This means that while one is preparing to tell the truth, lies can invade both the conscientious and oblivious mind, and become impossible to uproot. A lie is at times more believable than the truth and under varying circumstances people are more willing to believe a lie. Cyber communications is the Millennia’s new mode of ‘travel’ so it is not surprising that negative correspondence would also develop via the online world. Today once a lie is uploaded, it is near impossible to take it back, and ‘the truth’ even if it is able to find its ‘shoes’ will forever share the same cyber space as the lie. With the advent of cyber technology, a bully can destroy an individual and their self-esteem along with families, relationships, and in extreme cases entire communities within seconds, with the click of a button. “Cyber bullying is the use of…electronic communication to [terrorize] a person or persons” (“Bullying in a Cyber World”), using messages of intimidation or aggression. These messages are transmitted through mediums such as computers, cell phones and, web-cams, and can be disseminated to the maximum amount of persons desired through cyber channels like chat rooms, emails and social media. They are meant to torment, threaten, harass, humiliate, embarrass, or otherwise target a person or group of persons (Shariff &......

...characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung by process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas that derive from epithelial cells. The main primary types are small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), also called oat cell cancer, and non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The most common symptoms are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains.[1] The most common cause is long-term exposure to tobacco smoke,[2] which causes 80–90% of lung cancers.[1] Nonsmokers account for 10–15% of lung cancer cases,[3] and these cases are often attributed to a combination of genetic factors,[4] and exposure to; radon gas,[4] asbestos,[5] and air pollution[4] including second-hand smoke.[6][7] Lung cancer may be seen on chest radiographs and computed tomography (CT) scans. The diagnosis is confirmed by biopsy[8] which is usually performed by bronchoscopy or CT-guidance. Treatment and long-term outcomes depend on the type of cancer, the stage (degree of spread), and the person's overall health, measured by performance status. Common treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. NSCLC is sometimes treated with surgery, whereas SCLC usually responds better to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.[9] Overall, 15% of people in the United States diagnosed with lung cancer......

Touch Screen

...A touchscreen is an electronic visual display that the user can control through simple or multi-touch gestures by touching the screen with a special stylus/pen and-or one or more fingers. Some touchscreens an ordinary or specially coated gloves work too while others only a special stylus/pen will work. The user can use the touchscreen to react to what is displayed and to control how it is displayed (for example by zooming the text size). The touchscreen enables the user to interact directly with what is displayed, rather than using a mouse, touchpad, or any other intermediate device (other than a stylus, which is optional for most modern touchscreens). Touchscreens are common in devices such as game consoles, all-in-one computers, tablet computers, and smartphones. They can also be attached to computers or, as terminals, to networks. They also play a prominent role in the design of digital appliances such as personal digital assistants (PDAs), satellite navigationdevices, mobile phones, and video games and some books (Electronic books). The popularity of smartphones, tablets, and many types of information appliances is driving the demand and acceptance of common touchscreens for portable and functional electronics. Touchscreens are found in the medical field and in heavy industry, as well as for automated teller machines (ATMs), and kiosks such as museum displays or room automation, where keyboard and mouse systems do not allow a suitably intuitive, rapid, or accurate......

Ways of Seeing by John Berger

...Ways of Seeing by John Berger On Tuesday, June 5th 2012, I went to the Museum of Fine Arts. The atmosphere was peaceful and quiet even though there were a lot of students from a high school. If you decide to go to a museum you have a special attitude. First of all it is your choice to go there. The museum will not come to you. I spent quite some time walking around to find a picture that was “speaking” to me. Then I came across the “Behind the Scenes: Caring for working of art” room. It is an electrical room with a touch screen under the picture. The screen explains a lot of the different things about the history and background of the painting (picture 1). The painting was of Mrs. Timothy Rogers (Lucy Boylston). I was intrigued by the historical background of the Boylston Family and the timeline (1766 – 1767) during which John Singleton Copley painted six portraits of the Boylston family. It reminded me of a line in John Berger’s essay: “They are declared art when their line of descent can be certified” (150). I wonder how many wonderful and beautiful paintings were just thrown away because they were not of someone important, rich, or famous. There was also information about the cleaning of the painting. I was able to see the difference in the 1921 unclean portrait and the 1950 clean portrait. First, I just saw a nice painting of a woman, but now I can see and appreciate the portrait of Mrs. Timothy Rogers. “The meaning of an image is changed according to what one......

Seeing the Liberation of the Peon by Diego Rivera

...Brianna Green Professor Tim Cruise Introduction to Art 15 April 2014 Seeing The Liberation of Peon by Diego Rivera The Liberation of Peon, by artist Diego Rivera is portrayed through a Fresco media with dimensions of 73'' x 94 ¼ ". It was painted in 1931 and is on display in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Looking at this artwork brings a mood of sadness. Five men, four horses, burning villages, and sandy hills occupy the scene. The focal point of the painting appears to be a slave being cut down and freed form a wooden post. The directions of the staring men’s eyes all point me to the direction of the slave being freed. Looking at this artwork I feel that even though the scene seems hostile and dangerous there is positivity because someone is being helped. VISUAL ELEMENTS 1. Line- The lines used in this painting vary. Overall the lines appear smooth, but they are a little more jagged in other places. The fire and smoke created in the village of this art is made of curvy lines. The curvy lines are not only to show a fire, but they are also used to show direction. The curvy lines rise to the air changing from red to black as if the fire is spreading and will not be stopping in the near future. Lines are also used to set boundaries and outline object, like the outlining of the blanket used to cover the slave and the outline of the villages. The lines set boundaries for the hills and some spaces surrounding the villages. Lines are apparent throughout this whole......

Seeing Is Believing

...“Is seeing, Believing?” – Visual Literacy Understanding Visual concepts, globally 2014 Visual literacy is important to understand what you are seeing. As kids we watch and mimic people because visually we learn he best by watching others. In the video, Brian Kennedy defines visual literacy as the ability to construct meaning from images. The video helps provide more validation by saying, 90% of all the info we take in from the world is taken in visually. This is a huge number. In the video Kennedy said that we take in visuals faster than we do text. While the textbook defines visual literacy with more empathizes on all the senses working together to understand. The text states that more than one sense is needed to understand what you are seeing. So, jus sight along can't provide you with a complete understanding of what you are seeing. I believe that in both definitions there are valid points. Understand the thought that is seeing does not mean believing. So, if you see and smell it - that could be believing it. If you hear it and see it, that could be believing it too. Also, that construction meaning of what you see from images is the understanding of visual literacy. Both valid points. I tend to believe and relate more with Brian Kennedy. Beside the fact that the video was very good, I agree with this terminology and reasoning behind believing what he does. If I see an image, on a post card, that image does not have to be heard, or I don't have to......

Screen Macbeth

...As I walked through the door and caught a glimpse of the theatre, I wondered how the production staff managed to make a number of people fit into such a small space. This was the first reaction I had with the theatre. Indeed, the staff had a hard time looking for available spaces so that the other viewers can be seated. While they were doing this, I was able to take a good look at the theatre and evaluate it before the lights were turned off. The stage was one of a kind. I watched quite a lot of plays and so far, “Screen Macbeth” had the most unique structure. In the other plays I watched, the stage was just the traditional stage. It was at the front, it is positioned a little lower than the seats of the audience, and the audience were facing the same side. However, “Screen Macbeth” had a platform at the center of the audience. The audience from opposite sides of the theatre were facing each other. It is not the typical four-cornered platform though. It was like a catwalk with four directions. And I think that structure of the stage helped me understand the play even more because I can see the actors’ and actresses’ expressions up-close and it somehow made me feel what emotions the characters were experiencing. The lights were a bit dark. However, with a tragic plot such as Macbeth, dim lighting system is the most appropriate. Fear is one of the feelings emphasized in the play and with the dusky atmosphere in the theatre, I guess the feeling was conveyed perfectly to the......

Seeing the Light

...Thoreau’s View of Modern Society Henry David Thoreau’s “Seeing the Light,” explains about his journey into the wilderness. He went into the wilderness to find the truth about human’s existence. Thoreau proceeded on this journey to live with an agglomeration of simplicity. Thoreau chose this lifestyle of simplicity on his own volition, without any outside influence as expressed in “Seeing the Light.” In this excerpt Thoreau discusses the negative impacts of over-working, stresses the advantages of disassociating with the negative aspects society, and enabling ones self to experience a spiritual awakening. He wanted to have his life changed and in this excerpt he reflects and implies his own thoughts to create this change for himself. Thoreau views working in a negative way because he believes that society as a whole is working too often and too fast. Thoreau does not like the “modern gadgets”. He lists the telegraph and the railroad as specific examples. This passage explains that the railroad is a poison to the countrymen’s lives because it changes their slow paced lives into fast paced, hectic lives. As a result, people spend most of their time rushing around everywhere trying to get everything done as quickly as possible but ironically, people are always tardy. Thoreau wants people to stay at home and mind their own business so their lifestyles will not be altered to a faster pace. Thoreau is very conservative and traditional; he does not want anyone changing......

The Mutilation of a Book: from Page to Screen

...dystopian novels are lost when adapted to the big screen, because filmmakers are more concerned with the entertainment value, such as the romance and action, more than the message and actual story the novel originally presents. A major problem that filmmakers face when adapting a novel is the limit that the camera has to present literary points of view. The point of view— or narration— in the novel can offer insight into a characters mind as well as a characters thoughts and actions that a movie can not. “ This [voice-over narration] is not a natural cinematic quality, and it is rarely completely successful in duplicating or even suggesting novelistic viewpoints. In film we usually simply see the story unfold. Thus the dramatic point of view is the only novelistic viewpoint that can be directly translated to cinema” (Boggs 680). Filmmakers try to achieve these point of views through voice-over narration, but this element is usually only given in selected parts of the film. For example, in the dystopian movie adaptation of the New York Time's best selling novel Divergent, the audience listens to the main character, Tris Prior, as she explains her world in the opening narration. This, and the closing voice over at the end of the movie, is all that the audience hears from her. Other then these two very informative and unemotionally charged narrations, the audience only sees the actions that Tris performs on screen, not the thoughts that went into......

Through the Smoke Screen of Halloween

...Through the Smoke Screen of Halloween On October 31 every year, the majority of the country and several other countries celebrate the diabolized holiday of Samhain, otherwise more widely known as Halloween. Despite all the negative stigmas attached to this holiday, it is actually a very sacred and the holiest day to those that follow the Old Ways. Having known many pagans and being married to one, I have had the unique opportunity to gain a new insight into this holiday. It was and still is considered a celebration and reverent time to remember and honor the souls of family and friends who have died and departed this world. Before and especially during the Middle Ages, the new religion of Christianity was struggling to take hold on the people living throughout Ireland, Norway, the U.K. ranging to France and Germany. It was hard for the Church to convert those people and make them discard their gods, festivals and rituals. The Church resorted to assimilating the peoples' customs, ritual and beliefs into the Church's beliefs and then demonizing anything that didn't fit or they wanted to do away with. Samhain was one of those festivals that the Church would have done away with for the people revered this holiday a great deal. The time of Halloween, or Samhain, in an effort to eradicate these beliefs and practices, was depicted as a demonic evil time filled with horror with October 31 being the night of great dissonance and mischief. In actuality, Samhain is the......

To the Big Screen

...To the Big Screen Introduction I Who doesn’t like sitting in a big cool movie theater watching the newest action movie or the latest suspense thriller? It’s hard to believe though that the two hours you watch on the big screen took months if not years of hard work and preparation to make. II Movies aren’t just made out of thin air ready to be enjoyed. There is a process that every movie goes through in seeing that it gets made. III This process varies slightly depending on the size of the movie, but overall every movie made, from the amateur film student using the video camera on his phone or the latest summer blockbuster goes through a three-step process. However, the focus on my speech will be more on Hollywood movies rather then lower budget movies. IV The three steps a movie must go through to be made are preproduction, filming, and postproduction. Transition: So, what happens when a movie goes through pre production you may be wondering? Body I Preproduction is the period of time when you plan and prepare for the movie you are making. A First and foremost a movie is nothing until you have a script written. 1 A movie studio will can either make a movie based on a liked script 2 Or hey can also ask a writer to create a script based on a certain idea, story, or past event. Transition: Once the script has been written then the real work begins to......

Old Smoke

...upset about having to deal with the odor of old cigarette smoke in her company file room. She decided to take a stand and inform Renfold that she refused to work in the file room. This jeopardized a report that was due immediately. I will explain how I would handle this situation if I were Charles Renfold. I will describe the policy on smoking that I would recommend to Redwood Associates. I will also look at how this case would have change if what bothered Darlene was not old smoke but the smell of Alice’s perfume or Frank’s body odor. And finally I will resolve whether it is fair or reasonable for companies to ban employees from smoking in their cars in the company parking lot. Supervising Smoke In this case, I believe Darlene Lambert may have a very good argument but her handling of this legitimate problem is very wrong. Charles Renford is the supervisor in this situation and Darlene is not showing the proper protocol. Charles has reminded Darlene that she has never come to him to discuss this problem before. He also made it clear that the file room workers were not violating company policy with their smoking. Darlene on the other hand is being insubordinate by refusing to do the work. If I was supervisor I would remind Darlene of that fact and remind her of the jeopardy she is putting her position in by refusing to perform an important task. I would empathize with her desire to have a smoke free environment but suggest to her that she must follow......
