Clark May 5, 2014 Abstract This will be a paper to demonstrate the staggering number of sexual abuse cases in the United States and its long term effects on children and adults. My interest in this topic is due to the fact that I have been sexually abused as a child and have been researching about the long term effects in people who do not come forward with this problem. Many people have been able to recover from the damaging effects of sexual abuse, however, many still suffer from past memories and present debilitations. This paper aims to expose 5 facts about sexual abuse in children as well as statistics, adverse effects, prevention strategies, how homosexuality can be traced back to child abuse, how to recognize if your child has been abused, and reasons why people abuse children. I will also share some of my personal experiences in order to help the reader understand the damaging effect that child sex abuse has on a child and how it evolves into worse acts if not treated quickly. Child Sexual Abuse in the United States and its Long Term Effects Child sexual abuse is a form of abuse in which an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual purposes. These purposes can range from sexual activity regardless of outcome, exposure to pornographic materials, and even to produce child pornography. It is the one crime that can occur anywhere......

Patriot Movie Review

...Rachel Banes Dr. Mary Sanders HIST 1103-503 10 October 2014 The Patriot Movie Review The Patriot was an American Revolution epic that was portrayed from the perspective of an implacable family. While the movie provided entertainment, there were many historical events that were illustrated in this film such as, the depiction of militias, the implications of battles, and insight to life during war. Due to the bias nature of the film and a few historical inaccuracies, the nationalism in this movie becomes overwhelming. This film was set in the 1770’s in early South Carolina. Benjamin Martian, an ex French and Indian war icon, is the father of seven children who rejected a proposal to go to battle and be apart of the Continental Army. While trying to avoid any involvement in the battle, the war comes close to home and the leading antagonist Colonel Tavington killed Thomas, his 15-year-old son. Martin began seeking revenge by creating a militia that consisted of peasants and farmers. The militia had an objective to keep General Cornwallis in South Carolina. Their efforts were successful through their strategic planning by killing off his men and cutting him off from supplies. Although they succeeded in the surrender of Cornwallis, Gabriel, Martins son, also became a victim of Tavington and was killed. Gabriel’s death evoked one last fight between Martin and Tavington. Martin had the victory over him, which lead to Tavington’s death and helped drive the Continental Army......

With Reference to One or Two Scenes of Your Choice, Explore the Comic and Other Effects of Misrule in Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s Dream

...With reference to one or two scenes of your choice, explore the comic and other effects of misrule in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Misrule has many effects in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. One of the effects of misrule is that it creates comedy and humorous scenes. Puck enters in this act as a prototypical Shakespearean character if misrule. Immediately, a sexual reference may be implied by the character of Puck ‘a lovely boy’ that has been ‘stolen’ by Titania as is later revealed in the act. The word ‘boy’ suggests that he is ‘young’ and this may lead a present day audience to question Oberon’s intentions. A Shakespearen audience though would not be surprised by the idea however as in Ancient Greece it was considered a higher form of love to be with a young male; who at the time would have been considered physical icons of society. A modern day audience would be in shock at this sexual reference. This is further justified when the fairy reveals that he is in fact an agent of misrule and calls him a ‘shrewd’ and ‘knavish sprite’. Here it is made abundantly clear that he misbehaves and is ‘shrewd’ or very astute in his understanding. This has a comic effect as he is called a ‘sprite’ and also informs the audience that they should be aware of Puck. Puck accepts these allegations as true and admits he is that ‘merry wanderer’. He then elaborately lists all of his misdeeds. He says he makes the ...

Hamlet Movie Scene Comparison

...Hamlet Movie Scene Comparison Act II, scene 2 is the longest scene in Hamlet. In this scene, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern come to the King, Voltimand and Cornelius report the message from Norway, Polonius suggests to Claudius and Gertrude the reason of Hamlet’s madness, Hamlet calls Polonius a “fishmonger”, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern bring in the players, Hamlet decides to let the players play the Old King’s murder. Scene 2 is divided into sub-sections in a way to present the plot and the theme more clearly. The “fishmonger scene” refers to the part from Polonius’s explanation of Hamlet’s madness “Your noble son is mad” (2.2.92) to the end of Hamlet and Polonius’s first interaction “except my life” (2.2.210), initiates Hamlet’s actions on revenge and vouchsafes how other characters view his “madness”. This essay will compare the actors’ gestures and line arrangements from directors Kenneth Branagh and Franco Zeffirelli to depict the different effects in Hamlet’s madness. First, the actors’ gestures between Kenneth Branagh version and Mel Gibson version show differences to the interpretations of Hamlet’s madness. There are not many gestures in the Kenneth Branagh film, which can mean something. When Polonius talks to Claudius and Gertrude, also when he talks to Hamlet, he does not have obvious big body movement, but instead just standing straight, walking steadily, behaving perfectly like a honorable and educated man; Hamlet as the noble son of the King and Queen, and......

...1300 layouts of films contain the cut of camera work, camera speed and space relation between characters and backgrounds; it gives me an insight of the process of animation making. Hence, I would like to comprehend more about the film produced by animation powerhouse-Studio Ghibli, especially the masterpiece-“Spirited Away”, which helps to promote Japanese animation to worldwide audience. “Spirited Away” is an animated film written and directed by the director of Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki (Cavallaro 2004) in 2001, which have won awards in a number of international film festivals, including Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film and a Golden Bear at the Berlin International Festival (Reider 2005), and become the top-grossing movie in Japanese history. In the following, the film’s themes based on the plot, use of photography and camera angle and aesthetic symbols and motifs will be analyzed throughout the essay to understand the key of success of this fantasy adventure film, which was set in a traditional Japanese bathhouse.

Inter-Cultural Translatability of the Japanese Horror Movie Ring

...Aitolkyn East Asian Cinema, Fall 2015 December 18, 2015 Introduction The effect of 1998's Japanese film Ring can be compared to a big tsunami wave that not only became highest grossing horror film in the country, but also shuddered Taiwanese, Korean, Hong Kong film markets. Following years many publications included it to the numerous symbolic "top 10 most scary films" lists. And when Steven Spielberg bought the rights to make the Hollywood remake it was seen as official evidence that Japanese horror cinema became new trendsetter in this genre and gained cult status in the West. Nowadays with numerous follow-ups within the Ring franchise and triggered a trend of Western remakes "Ring" is viewed as exemplary illustrative Asian horror movie. I will argue that the wide success of the movie is caused not by its deep cultural ties with Japanese cinema and Japanese horror movies in particular, but because on the contrary "Ring" has little to do with its traditional background. Hideo Nakata deliberately cut off all the cultural traces in order to make cinematic language of the movie universal and cosmopolitan thus giving a way for its intercultural translation and to be easily replicated. In order to do it first I will analyze different Japanese merchandizing strategies and study the film as a media product. Second, I will briefly overlook history and main stylistic traits of Japanese horror movie genre. In my general overlook on Japanese horror cinema, I will focus on two......

Physical, Behavioral, and Emotional Developmental Effects of Child Sexual Abuse

...Developmental Effects of Child Sexual Abuse   Cathy F. Breingan                         PSYC355, Child Psychology Joann Altiero, Ph.D. April, 2009 It is difficult to believe that it is a sick world out there full of very sick and vile people. Not only is it bad enough that adults cannot even feel safe anymore out there in the world but the children are just as vulnerable—they are more vulnerable and at risk in more ways than one. One of those vulnerability and risk is child abuse. There are different types of child abuse. They are child neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and the focus of this paper, child sexual abuse. The Darkness to Light Organization “defines child sexual abuse in four distinct ways: (1) Any sexual act between an adult and a minor or between two minors when one exerts power over the other; (2) Forcing, coercing or persuading a child to engage in any type of sexual act. This, of course, includes sexual contact. It also includes non-contact acts such as exhibitionism, exposure to pornography, voyeurism and communication in a sexual manner by phone or internet; (3) an ongoing and traumatic experience for its victims; and (4) a crime punishable by law” (cited in Dove & Miller, 2007). With sexual abuse come negative effects and developmental issues that can carry through adulthood. These effects will haunt the victims for the rest of their lives and will play a very critical part in their overall development. Some of these......

Pygmalion Effect vs Gollem Effect

...PYGMALION EFFECT v/s GOLEM EFFECT Pygmalion Effect One of the most interesting parts of the movie is the way Lt General Irwin motivates the inmates of The Castle. He reminds them that they were soldiers and not petty criminals and thus gives them back their self respect and makes them believes in themselves. The inmates of The Castle were primarily ex army personnel who had been imprisoned for violating the martial law. They had been stripped off their ranks and with that their self respect. They were reminded everyday that they were not soldiers anymore. They were even reprimanded for saluting. Lt Eugene Irwin felt the need to develop the feeling of self respect in them. He reminded them that they were distinguished members of the United States Army and tells them that they are expected to act in a manner befitting one. Thus he manages to return to the inmates of the Castle their self respect thereby giving them the courage to strike up a rebellion. This is known as The Pygmalion Effect. There are a number of occasions on which The Pygmalion Effect has been demonstrated in the movie. 1. First is in the case of Corporal Ramone Aguilar. Corporal Aguilar was a young marine who had been arrested for act of violence. He had a problem of low self esteem and stammered while talking. It was Lt General Eugene Irwin who reminded him of the fact that he was still a distinguished member of the United States Marine Corps. He told him the importance of saluting. When the time...

Diverse Effects of Movie Violence

...Diverse Effects of Movie Violence Bob D. Weaver American Intercontinental University   Abstract Movie Violence has positive and negative effects on society and individuals. Certain results have shown that after viewing violence in a film, viewers are more aggressive. It desensitizes people and makes them more probable to perform violent acts. The violence in films is lifted up by showing that people can achieve goals and live fabulous lifestyles by exerting dominance with violence. However, movie violence has positive effects such as the reduction of crime after large audiences view violent films.  Good and evil, yin and yang, and Newton’s third law all show that there are two sides to everything. Where there is one effect, there is another to counter-balance. This is proven with the diverse effects of violence in movies. More often than not, when people speak about violence in movies, they speak about how it corrupts the minds of youth and leads to mankind becoming more violent as a species. The only arguments that are usually heard against these claims are about how the parents need to control the children and criminals need to stop blaming the television. Although not very known, the violence that is portrayed in movies and television shows has negative as well as positive effects. The criminal lifestyle in movies and television shows are often displayed as fabulous, powerful, and exotic to where the criminal can have or do anything they want because they often......
