Introduction

Introduction
"Real Steel" imagines a near future when human boxers have been replaced by robots. Matches between small fighting robot machines are popular enough to be on television, but in "Real Steel," these robots are towering, computer-controlled machines with nimble footwork and instinctive balance. (In the real world, 'bots can be rendered helpless on their backs, like turtles.) Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a former boxer who is now hanging onto the fringes of the fight game as the owner-operator of a ramshackle robot he tours with. It's no match for the competition, and when the desperate Charlie replaces it with another battered veteran, it can't even outfight a real bull.If the movie were all robot fights it might be as unbearable as well, a Transformers title. Drama enters in the person of Charlie's son, Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo), a smart, resilient pre-teen who, like all kids, seems to have been genetically programmed to understand computers, video games and all allied fields. Charlie is a very bad absent father, and as played by Hugh Jackman, he is actually mean toward his boy. Charlie's sister (Hope Davis) and her husband (James Rebhorn) plan to adopt the boy, but in a complicated arrangement, Charlie first has to take care of Max for a summer.This Max is some kid. He loves robots. During a scouting expedition in a 'bot junk yard, he comes upon an ancient training robot named Atom literally covered in mud and convinces his dad this relic still has fighting…...

English Assignment - the American Dream

...1. Give an outline of how the American Dream is interpreted in texts 2, 3 and 4 Arnold Schwarzenegger recalls lessons from 25 years as a U.S. citizen – learn English, Participate in Politics and Give Back. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s text focuses on immigrants that came to America, to achieve ”The American Dream”. The American Dream from Arnold’s view is not about what you can acquire from America, as an immigrant, but what you can do to give something back. His suggestions for giving something back is to first learn the English language, then contribute to the political course and at last help the community by donating, volunteering, mentoring a child, participating in a program, helping the less fortunate, doing community service, etc. He rounds up by saying: “There is no second-tier citizenship. You are an American, period. With hard work, learning English and getting involved, there is no limit on what you can achieve” Whose American Dream is it, anyway? Anya Kamenetz’s article primarily emphasizes the economic side of the American Dream. The main problem she proposes is that the Americans are a lot more unenthusiastic about their lives now, then at any time in the past 50 years, probably because of the deteriorating economy and the high expenses for supply of essential resources. One question that was raised in the article is if there’s a link between wealth and happiness. Anya refers to researcher Daniel Gilbert who discovered that once an average person earns more......

English 215 Assignment 1

...English 215: Research and Writing Assignment 1: Research Topics With Explanation Professor Reagan January 16, 2013 There were many research topics that caught my attention, so choosing was a little difficult for me. The first topic I chose is “Should regulations be changed regarding genetically altering plants and/or animals”. This topic is a very serious matter to me, and I am taking it in the context that it is regarding genetically modified plants and animals that were intended to be used for food. I am a vegetarian and I do believe we all have the right to know what we are consuming. Genetically modified food can be dangerous, and by the time we find out how dangerous, it may be too late. The audience for this topic would be anyone who is health conscious, interested in animal rights, or just interested in knowing the truth about what they are really consuming. Two credible sources I would use to write my paper would be the Forbes article (http://www.forbes.com/sites/emilywillingham/2012/12/07/what-you-need-to-know-about-gm-foods-is-half-the-story/) and the Human Genome Project Information site (http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/gmfood.shtml) My preliminary thesis statement would be: “With such a strong focus lately in obesity and calorie consumption, it seems as if many people are becoming more aware of their health and eating habits. While a salad may be a very good option for a healthy diet, does anyone really know what has happened to......

...Ch r i s t i n e Ro e ll Intercultural Training with Films ilms are a great medium to use not only to practice English, but also to facilitate intercultural learning. Today English is a global language spoken by people from many countries and cultural backgrounds. Since culture greatly impacts communication, it is helpful for teachers to introduce lessons and activities that reveal how different dialects, forms of address, customs, taboos, and other cultural elements influence interaction among different groups. Numerous films contain excellent examples of intercultural communication and are highly useful resources for teachers. Additional reasons for teachers to incorporate films in class and encourage their students to watch movies in English include: • Films combine pleasure and learning by telling a story in a way that captures and holds the viewer’s interest. • Films simultaneously address different senses and cognitive channels. For example, spoken language is supported by visual elements that make it easier for students to understand the dialogues and the plot. • Students are exposed to the way people actually speak. 2 2010 N u m b e r F • Films involve the viewers, appeal to their feelings, and help them empathize with the protagonists. • DVDs usually come with subtitles in English, which facilitates understanding and improves reading skills. After discussing the importance of teaching intercultural communication and suggesting films that match specific......

... HI18 - C July 1, 2013 _____________________________________________________________________________________ To many of us, history is simply a class you take to be able to learn and memorize certain dates, events and people that have tremendous significance to a country, nation or even community. If you view it this way, you are missing the whole point of history. There is more to the objectivity of history. The very essence of history is that it leaves a trace of emotion by these so called significant events in one’s and/or other people’s lives – much like what Erin did in the movie, Freedom Writers. Erin is one of the rare kind of teachers that teach you more than what the curriculum offers. More than just a teacher-student relationship, she has offered and developed friendship, trust and hope for the students of Room 203 and more importantly, bridged the gap among her students that has been constraining their way of interacting with each another. Erin’s first encounter with her class did not seem to be what she expected at all. There were no signs of respect for anyone in the room as the students formed cliques, isolated themselves from those who belonged to another race or gang and continued chitchatting despite the presence of their teacher. Nevertheless, Erin put up with this kind of attitude from her students and strived to teach them the best way she could – through innovation. She planned field trips, inspiring talks by Holocaust survivors, Anne Frank’s......

...describe the message of the speech pretty well. What the quote ultimately means is that you have to do something because you want to do it, not because of what it might bring you. This also seems to be the overall theme of the speech. You shouldn’t do something just to get the achievement it gives but you should do it to enjoy the challenge it brings. This referrers to all the people taking long educations and boring jobs just to make money but you should do what you love enjoy the experience of doing it. The things you’ve experienced makes you the person you are and McCullough stresses the point that you’re not the material possessions you own. This can be compared to the speech1 Brad Pitts fictional character Tyler Durden held in the movie Fight Club where he talks about how the person you are is not defined by how much money you have in your bank or the car you drive etc. 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wo-wkv8gW6k ...

The movie had everything need to make it a very interesting for the writing; it had agents, lawyers, judges, and criminals. The story was about these two federal agents that once was working for the president as his bodyguards, but one of the agents was getting close to his retirement so they were demoted to a lower job, so he would not have to put his life in danger before he retire. So the agents were put on a case to catch a highly professional counterfeit maker, and this guy did his job very well to where it looks just like the 20 dollar bills, counterfeit making was easy in the 70’s and 80’s due to the making of the bill today as we call them big faces, and due to the special printing paper it’s kind of hard but it is someone still able to make counterfeit money. So the agents was getting close to his retirement day and he had a very good lead on where to find evidence of where the......

English 115 Assignment 1

...Vontesch Barnes “On Becoming a Writer” Strayer University – English 115 Assignment 1 “On Becoming a Writer” Russell Baker “On Becoming a Writer” conveyed how he had a dream to become a writer. The main point that I took from this passage was that things happen unexpectantly. If you have a dream entertain it, because you never know where your pursuit will lead you. Russell looked at writing as something that was done by only the rich. He never imagined that becoming a writer could be a career that he could potentially get paid from. What I took from this was that he treated writing as a hobby or something liked he liked to do. Although writing was Russell’s dream, he still only thought of it as an Interest until he met Mr. Fleagle. It seemed that even though he had not been taught by Mr. Fleagle, he already had a preset judgement of how he was going to be. “He was said to be stuffy, dull, and hopelessly out of date. To me he looked to be sixty or seventy and prim to a fault”. One point I got from this was that the answers to life’s mysteries, even your dreams may come in a form you wouldn’t expect. Russell didn’t like English, the assignments or writing papers for the class in general. After some time in Mr. Fleagle’s class he was given an assignment called “What I did on My Summer Vacation”. This is the assignment that eventually lead him to discover his passion for writing. Instead he wrote a paper titled “The Art of Eating Spaghetti”. Russell pulled from a......

English Comp Movie Review

...English 101 Fifth Graded Assignment Matthew C. Hinkle User ID: HI5247197 University of Management and Technology 18 August 2015 I have an issue with Director Breck Eisner’s adaptation of Clive Cussler’s book Sahara. In most of Clive Cussler’s books, the opening of the book sets up the story later on, the beginning story is usually a major part of the plot development. Those who have read his books understand this omission, it was largely left out and replaced with the director’s backstory. In the original movie the story of Kitty Mannock, a pilot who crashes into the desert during a record attempt in 1931 sets up the book, and later in the book when two of the characters come upon the crash, it makes sense, in the movie however they just find the plane, use the plane and the story is never told, something those who like Clive Cussler’s books enjoy immensely. Overall, I enjoyed both the movie and the book, though there were issues those who are Clive Cussler fans would catch right away, it was exciting to see one of the books come to life on the big screen. I have been a Clive Cussler fan for years, though this will probably be the only one to become a movie I was not completely disappointed. I enjoyed the movie, plenty of excitement, plot changes, drama, civil war history references and a little morality thrown in...

English 103 Essay 1 Assignment

...English 103 Essay 1 Assignment Argument: Hospital statistics regarding people who go to the emergency room after rollerskating accidents indicate the need for more protective equipment.  Within this group of people, 75 percent of those who had accidents in streets or parking lots were not wearing any protective clothing (helmets, knee pads, etc.) or any light-reflecting material (clip-on lights, glow-in-the-dark wrist pads, etc.).  Clearly, these statistics indicate that by investing in high-quality protective gear and reflective equipment, rollerskaters will greatly reduce their risk of being severely injured in an accident. Writing Task: How well reasoned and convincing is this argument?  In explaining your point of view, be sure to analyze the conclusion, the line of reasoning, and the use of evidence in the argument.  Also discuss what, if anything, would make the argument more sound and persuasive or would help readers better evaluate its conclusion. 2-3 pages typed, double-spaced Use Times New Roman 12 point font, 1” margins.

The 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,......
