THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Overview
According to the movie, “The Breakfast Club”, it began on Saturday morning at the Shermer High School where five high school students from different social groups met for a detention of eight hours. They were asked to each write an essay by their principal Mr. Vernon on the topic “who do you think you are?” Mr. Vernon only saw them as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal (“The breakfast club,” n.d., para., 4). They saw themselves like what they had been stereotyped to be by the principal and also by the outer world. But at the end of the day it was not the case. During the morning period of the detention, they did not talk much to each other. But as the day went by, they ague and hated each other, believing that each of them were completely different and unique in the problems and tribulations they faced. As the movie unfolds, they open themselves to each other as they shared their deepest fear, emotions, and problems. They become friends irrespective of their cliques as they exploited their physical cognitive and sociology-emotional levels of development the (‘The breakfast club, 1985”).
Narrative
The movie begins on a Saturday morning at about seven o’clock. Their parents drop them off at school and they all meet up in the library. Then Mr. Vernon comes in and congratulates them for being early. As Mr. Vernon paused, Claire quickly puts up her hand, stands up, and tells Mr. Vernon that she knows it is detention but she thinks she does not belong in the library with the others. This is an indication of not wanting to belong. It is very common in youth today. Nevertheless, Mr. Vernon ignored her and continues talking. He told them not to move, talk nor sleep during the detention. He then instructed them to write an essay on who they think they are. Then he left the library leaving the door open so that he could…...

The fact there club lacks the upgraded technology in order to make a statement among all other clubs in the area. Club IT does not have the relationships that most successful club have with their consumers or contractors. For example Belasco night club in Downtown LA sub contracts to a professional radio station who makes appearances on certain nights and have professional relationships with music Stars who may be included for a certain percentage of the profits made from that night. The thing is the more you reach out and make connections such as a radio station or well-known DJ; they automatically have an fan base which will boost your ratings and boost your reputation with free promoting from each source.

...Club IT, Part Two Jomoto Brown BIS/219 April 25, 2011 Tarik Iles Club IT, Part Two The best way to minimize cost and maximize profit is to revolutionize the infrastructure of Club IT. The best way to get this done is to let the information technology department as well as the owners incorporate better planning and new management systems. One of the issues bought to the attention of the author was the selling of advance tickets by having the customer call in or coming to the club to purchase the tickets. Some of the information that was gathered from Ruben was that he wants to have a website setup so that his customers can purchase tickets online. This is a good idea as well as one that can be expanded. The information technology department can begin working immediately on the club’s extranet, which will be a website that a customer or potential customer can visit and check out who is performing on Friday and Saturday night events. This should be handled very seriously because the club owners want their customers to have a safe and secure transaction over their extranet and electronic data interchange. The way this will be set up is the customer will go to the website, create a personal account, and he or she can purchase his or her tickets online and be able to print the tickets at home. In addition, with this service the club will receive the customer’s e-mail address for this can be the customer’s login information, and the club can send the......

...Running Head: Club IT Part I Club IT Part I As the newest intern for Club IT, I have taken a look at the most recent issue’s that both Ruben and Lisa are having as owners of this new club. Being a new club, it is very important that there are strategies in place to stay competitive with the competing night clubs in the area. I very much do think that Ruben and Lisa can be competitive running Club IT. Having the knowledge of the services offered including hours of operation, entertainment venue, along with the pricing charged for these amenities is a giant advantage to build around. Keeping up with this information along will keep you in the loop and operationally effective. This will also make it easier to plan your business hours, nightly specials, and events around the busier nights a competing club may have causing you to have less the crowd, meaning less the profits. With Club IT being new, I think that the new remodeling works very well with the modern club style. The high ceilings and high energy lighting that was mentioned gives a look that as noted will bring a very high level of energy to the club making it a fun place to be at and go to. Keeping a strong innovation to Club IT with be on a consistant watch due to changes made all the time in the night club industry. Conclusion Club IT has all the tools needed to stay innovative and successful. The......

Club Fitting

...Club Fitting, The Importance Of Page Break Impossible; it is impossible for a golfer to maximize the potential without two key components. First component is understanding how to properly position and accurately move to body. Simply having an understanding of the fundamentals of golf and the ball flight laws will not give any golfer the best possible opportunities to succeed. Knowledge of what the body does during the golf swing and how to maximize the potential of those body parts will allow the coach and golfer to assess and train for maximum performance. While possessing these fundamentals will increase the ability of the golfer to make their best possible swing, maximum potential can't be reached if the perfect swing is swinging incorrect equipment. Proper and accurately fit equipment is the second and equally important key to maximizing potential and player ability enhancement. (1)"Fitters say the reason a lot of people hit it sideways is because they haven't been custom-fit. Trying to figure out the swing with clubs whose length, weight, lie angle, shaft flex or grip size don't match the body encourages players to make unnatural compensations that prevent them from developing proper mechanics." Meeting with and interviewing the potential student or fitting client will allow the fitter to have the most accurate ability to assess what the client can and can't do. Physical disabilities will effect what the golfer can do and what the fitting professional......
