Historical moments in France and Russia led to a new degree of freedom of expression for filmmakers of the time. During majority of the 1960’s in France there was a heavy presence of the “Gaullist Myth” of the Resistance at stated that France as a nation resisted the Nazi’s. In May of 1968, the atmosphere of the nation changed due to student protests and riots against the authoritarian system of education and the government. Also, de Gaulle left office in 1969. These pivotal events allowed films like L’Armee des Ombres to confront different views and opinions of the Resistance movement. This film contrasts the “Gaullist Myth,” that all of France participated in resisting the Nazi’s, by focusing on a small group of the Resistance throughout the entire film. Films like this were now allowed to confront and accuse collaborators, which was unheard of before 1968-69. The master narrative after these events changed from everyone resisted to few people resisted and many collaborated.

On the other hand in Russia in 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev introduced the ideas of Perestroika and Glasnost, otherwise known as restructuring and openness respectively. Due to these events, the government became more decentralized, which led to less censorship. The film Detskii Sad (reflects the new areas that were explored due to the events of 1985. In this film, artistic experimentation plays a bigger role than in films before. The film also expressed nudity, crime, featured Gypsies and Jews, while presenting a new view of patriotism. Since this film focused on Russia fighting in a war, the new patriotism was for Russia as a whole instead of just the Soviet Union. Gorbachev, Perestroika, and Glasnost allowed filmmakers to change the master narrative from Soviet patriotism to Russian patriotism.…...

...depicting violence. “By not monitoring children’s behavior, and by not showing children how to replace aggression with constructive behaviors, parents send the indirect message that it’s OK to use aggressive behavior to get what they want.” By not showing our children that it is wrong to use aggressive behavior we are telling them that they can do what they want to whomever they want. If parents do not show their children how to behave then that leaves it to someone else to do it for them. In most cases this falls on television or even other children. When we make the decision to have children we are saying that we are ready to take on this huge responsibility. The problem with today’s society is that most families are not raising their children themselves. They leave it to day care providers, school and other people in the community to do this for them. The decision to have children should not be taken lightly since it is the largest responsibility that you could ever take on. With our economy the way that it is right now it is difficult to find a situation where it is possible for one parent to stay home and raise the children. As a mother of five children I know that it is a very difficult task to raise children and had I truly known how difficult it would be I would have waited until I was older to start my family. Another issue that I have ran into with trying to teach my children how to cope with their aggression is raising the children that are form a split home.......

...Cloud computing: benefits, risks and recommendations for information security Cloud computing is a new way of delivering computing resources, not a new technology. Computing services ranging from data storage and processing to software, such as email handling, are now available instantly, commitment-free and on-demand. Since we are in a time of belt-tightening, this new economic model for computing has found fertile ground and is seeing massive global investment. According to IDC’s analysis, the worldwide forecast for cloud services in 2009 will be in the order of $17.4bn1. The estimation for 2013 amounts to $44.2bn, with the European market ranging from €971m in 2008 to €6,005m in 2013 2. The key conclusion of ENISA’s 2009 paper on Cloud Computing: benefits, risks and recommendations for information security3 is that the cloud’s economies of scale and flexibility are both a friend and a foe from a security point of view. The massive concentrations of resources and data present a more attractive target to attackers, but cloud-based defences can be more robust, scalable and cost-effective. ENISA’s paper allows an informed assessment of the security risks and benefits of using cloud computing - providing security guidance for potential and existing users of cloud computing. The new economic model has also driven technical change in terms of: Scale: commoditisation and the drive towards economic efficiency have led to massive concentrations of the hardware resources required to......

People Don't Know

...People Don't Know “People don't know what they want, they just want what they know,” some people say. It sounds biased, and even ignorant; given the right prodding, there's consumers that are willing to try something new, as they are tired of the same old products. It is true though, that most consumers prefer what they know to something new. I myself am guilty of this; every time I go out to buy my video games, music, and even books I find myself attracted to the series and artists I have experience with, rather than the unknown. Sadly, I think this is because the market is so condensed, there is a lack of quality in the final products. Songs like Rebecca Black's Friday, movies like the Twilight Saga, books like E.L. James' Fifty Shades series, and games like the infamous Duke Nukem Forever can close the minds of even the most open-minded consumers, forcing them to remain enslaved to products they are already familiar with. I'm going to use myself as an example, to prove why this is sadly true. I've been playing video games since I'm four. I've owned no less than six consoles; the Sega Genesis, the Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, an original Xbox, a Playstation 2, and an Xbox 360, along with several handheld consoles, as well as my computer. The amount of games I used to play and buy on each console is incredibly different: on my Genesis, I owned at least 24; my N64 and Gamecube both had 20-25 games, and my Xbox and Playstation 2 both had five and six games (admittedly......

...Essay In this essay I will be applying the information from Item A and my own knowledge to evaluate Marxists views on how culture has evolved in the UK society. Marxist theory was based on the writings of Karl Marx in 1818-1889. Marxists believe that we are socialized into a traditional gender, working role. This benefits the Bourgeoisie, ruling class who seek to own the means of production and impose a state of false class consciousness on the working class through ruling ideology. They believe certain cultures have negative impacts on society. Marxists believe one type of culture that has a negative impact on society is mass culture. Mass culture creates an unthinking, uncritical working class. This is shown in item A as it says "dumbing down", this suggests a lower quality of products is made as they are massed produced as they look inferior because they will have little value and are short lived compared to high culture products. This makes the working class feel content within their social positions so a lower quality of culture is created. The lower quality offers easy pleasure from its simplified types, therefore it stops people appreciating more complex forms of culture. This is shown in today's society as we have a capitalist system who creates false needs for the working class population where they produce vast profits through advertising and consumerism. However, this can be criticized as it could be what the 'masses' want to watch, dumbed down products that are...

...Chapter 14 Mendel and the Gene Idea Lecture Outline Overview • Every day we observe heritable variations (such as brown, green, or blue eyes) among individuals in a population. • These traits are transmitted from parents to offspring. • One possible explanation for heredity is a “blending” hypothesis. ° This hypothesis proposes that genetic material contributed by each parent mixes in a manner analogous to the way blue and yellow paints blend to make green. ° With blending inheritance, a freely mating population will eventually give rise to a uniform population of individuals. ° Everyday observations and the results of breeding experiments tell us that heritable traits do not blend to become uniform. • An alternative model, “particulate” inheritance, proposes that parents pass on discrete heritable units, genes, that retain their separate identities in offspring. ° Genes can be sorted and passed on, generation after generation, in undiluted form. • Modern genetics began in an abbey garden, where a monk named Gregor Mendel documented a particulate mechanism of inheritance. A. Gregor Mendel’s Discoveries 1. Mendel brought an experimental and quantitative approach to genetics. • Mendel discovered the basic principles of heredity by breeding garden peas in carefully planned experiments. • Mendel grew up on a small farm in what is today the Czech Republic. • In 1843, Mendel entered an Augustinian monastery. • He...

...exclusive lifestyle. 5. “If you have your lower animals to contend with,” he said, “we have our lower classes!” This quip, delivered by Mr. Pilkington to Napoleon and his cabinet during their well-catered retreat inside the farmhouse in Chapter X, makes fully explicit the process of ideological corruption that has been taking place throughout the novella. Old Major’s notion of the absolute division of interests between animals and humans here gives way to a division between two classes, even cutting across species lines. Pigs and farmers share a need to keep down their labouring classes. Mr. Pilkington’s witticism lays bare the ugly but common equation of labourers with animals. Moreover, the quote serves to emphasize directly the significance of Animal Farm as a social commentary, cementing the conceptual link between the downtrodden animals and the working classes of the world. Orwell explodes his “fairy story,” as he termed it, by bringing it into the realm of human consequence, thereby making its terrors all the more frightening to his readership. With reference to http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/quotes.html 1. ------------------------------------------------- Old Major warns, ------------------------------------------------- "Your resolution must never falter.  No argument must lead you astray.  Never listen when they tell you that Man and the animals have a common interest....we must not come to resemble him...No animal must ever live in a house......

...Sophocles' Oedipus is a perfect fit to Aristotle's Ideal Tragic Hero. Oedipus follows all of the rules, with a hamartia, an anagnorisis, and a peripeteia. The audience is introduced to the hamartia, or tragic flaw, of Oedipus early in the play. Oedipus believes he can dodge the oracle given to him at Delphi that he will kill his father and marry his mother. By leaving the city of Corinth and heading to Thebes, Oedipus thinks that he can outsmart the will that the gods have for him. However, the audience knows that one cannot run away from an oracle. The oracle will come true no matter what is done. Therefore, the hamartia of Oedipus is his belief that he can evade his oracle. Oedipus' anagnorisis, recognition, later comes when he is told that it was he who killed the former King Lauis and that he is, in fact, now married to his own mother. The city of Thebes had been searching for King Lauis' murderer in order to drive him out of Thebes to save the city from the plague. With this anagnorisis Oedipus is finally led to his peripeteia, or downfall. First of all, Oedipus is put to shame in front of his entire city because of his incestuous act of marrying his mother. But, more importantly, he realizes that he had not successfully avoided the oracle. In order to try to save himself he blinds himself. If he is not able to see the truth with his own eyes, he should not be able to enjoy the gift of sight. http://personal.monm.edu/ysample/aristotle.htm Oedipus follows ten of the......
