据中国互联网络信息中心(CNNIC)发布的《中国互联网络发展状况统计报告》显示,2012年,中国网民规模达到5.64亿,手机网民达到4.2亿,网络已成为人们尤其是年轻人生活的一部分。网络给人带来便利的同时,各种各样的“病”和“瘾”也悄悄地潜伏到了人们身边,“社交网络依赖症”就是其中之一。

现在在聚会、唱歌等场合,一部分人在聊天时会偶尔地拿出手机,刷下朋友圈或微博,个别的人在聊会儿天后就“心不在焉”,对着手机开始“埋头苦干”。“有次小学同学聚会,有个同学在吃完饭后就拿着手机进入了自己的‘世界’,本来想和他聊聊以前同学的时光,结果最后拿到一个QQ号,告诉我以后常联系。”“90后”王珊对此现象感到无奈,她说,虽然她也玩这些,但不会在这种场合玩。

此外,不少网民因过度依赖网络,长时间面对电脑,还出现了视力下降、思维迟缓、情绪低落、精力不足等问题,不少青年因习惯了键盘打字,常常提笔忘字,颈椎也出现不适等等。

...authors portray almost the same points. The main characters, Fiona Anderson and her husband Grant Anderson, have been married for forty four years. Fiona’s brain has been slowly deteriorating due to her disease, Alzheimer’s. Fiona and her husband decide that she has gone past the point of no return and needs more supervised care. They check her into Meadowlake facility and Grant is told that he cannot see Fiona for thirty days, so she can get acclimated to her surroundings. He returns after the 30 days to find that his wife has forgotten who he was and has connected with another patient named Aubrey (Egoyan, et al., 2006). Short Story vs. Film The short story (Munro, 2013) and the film (Egoyan, et al., 2006) are similar in writing and characters. The characters that are in the short story (Munro, 2013) are the same characters that were in the film (Egoyan, et al., 2006). Munro wrote the characters as all having very strong personalities and those personalities are shown throughout the film (Egoyan, et al., 2006). Fiona mostly shows hers because in the short story (Munro, 2013) she is portrayed as a light hearted, warm, caring woman who loves nature and life. When Fiona and Grant are taking a walk through the woods, Fiona stops and bends down next to a beautiful yellow flower and says,” When I look away, I forget what yellow means. But I can look again” (Egoyan, et al., 2006). This quotation is meant to portray Fiona in a light manner and show how much her brain is......

Abnormal Psychology

...Boy there is an unusual boy that the film focuses on named Marcus. Marcus has a highly unusual mom named Fiona whom I chose to focus on for this paper. Fiona plays the excentric mom with major problems which effect her son Marcus in some pretty big ways. Fiona’s behaviors, depression, and suicidal ways effect her 12 year old son in some majorly negative ways causing him to really struggle socially in school and to become an outcast. Fiona tries to commit suicide at one point in the movie that then later drives her son Marcus to befriend an older middle aged man named Will, hoping that Will can help his mom. Marcus tends to then cling to Will a little bit throughout the movie since he has no friends, is being bullied at school, is lonely, and scared that his mom will try to commit suicide again and he doesn’t know how to help her. The entire movie Marcus is trying to get Will to help his mom and hes trying to cheer his mom up. Fiona’s mood continues to be up and down the entire movie and she continues to really be socially awkward and struggles with being sad a lot! Diagnostic Impressions: 1. Signs: Towards the beginning of the movie Fiona is trying to fix her son’s breakfast but cannot seem to get the task accomplished because she is crying uncontrollably the whole time. There also seems to be no apperant reason for her uncontrollable crying. In another movie scene Fiona is found by her son, and friends, passed out on the couch with a prescription bottle sitting on the......

About a Boy

...bullies. The first time we are introduced to this boy named Marcus, is when Will, a single man, takes a friend of Marcus’ mom out on a date. She’s called Suzie and promised Marcus’ mother, Fiona, to take care of him. Will seems nice and protective over Marcus. Especially when Marcus almost is claimed for killing a duck with a loaf of bread. Will here takes place and tells the park keeper, that is was already dead. What none of them know of, is that Will isn’t exactly who they think he is. Will attends a group for single parents, but actually, he has no kids at all. However, he pretends to have a two-year-old son named Ned. When Will first meets Marcus, he has the feeling, that he is a little bit weird. That thought soon gets confirmed. When Will and his date Suzie stops by Marcus’ house to drop him off, they find his mother Fiona, passed out on the couch. Fiona has taken an overdose and attempted suicide. This is the environment Marcus lives in. Marcus is afraid every day that his mom is going to attempt suicide again. She cries all the time, and that makes him very worried. His mom Fiona constantly tries to do her best, but it’s like she’s living in another world. She encourage him to do things that she knows, he will get bullied for, because she kind of wants to defy the bullies. Fiona thinks it’ll work, but it just doesn’t. At all. Marcus gets bullied every day at school. He acts weird and abnormal, and sometimes he starts singing during classes. Just out of the blue.......

The Giver - Film & Book Comparison

...The Giver - Film/Novel Comparison Fiona from the book The Giver, is very laid back and is a supporting character in the book, while in the film version she is made into this love interest. She also completely changed jobs in the community, which actually resulted in different endings for each the book and movie. Although she is the same dialogue-wise, her personality even somewhat changed from book to movie. Fiona in the book was never a love interest, she was always a best friend and just supported Jonas. The reason I believe they changed her into a love interest is because they were increasing everyone’s age and it gave a more memorable ending to the movie. The book just cut off after he gets to the bottom of the hill. It was never said what happened to Fiona after Jonas leaves the community. She just disappears and isn’t in the book anymore. Fiona was a caregiver in the book and took care of the old people. In the movie, they completely went to the opposite side of the spectrum and she was a nurturer and took care of newchildren. It makes sense that they made the decision to give her a very caring, sweet job with the newchildren. Without her having that job, she wouldn’t have had access to the facility that Gabe was at at the end of the movie when Jonas took him. In the book Gabe never leaves Jonas’s dwelling. He just takes him out of his crib and leaves, in the movie, they made it into a huge action sequence. I thought that it was cliche but essential that the......

Frustration

...necessary that certain elements be fulfilled for a contract to be legally enforceable, that is, an unequivocal offer and acceptance between the contracting parties, applicable consideration, intention to create legal relations and sufficient capacity. The first issue to be resolved is whether the doctrine of frustration would discharge the contract between Edmund and Fiona and secondly, whether any monies paid or payable could be recovered. Anticipatory breach describes a declaration by the promising party to a contract that he does not intend to live up to his obligations under the contract. Communication of the anticipatory breach can be expressly or impliedly made. There could be the possibility of anticipatory breach by Fiona for delaying the start of work. Edmund, having received communication of an anticipatory breach can treat the contract as discharged despite no actual breach occurring, provided he communicated his intention to Fiona to accept the breach and terminate the contract as per Hochester v De La Tour (1853). Edmund will thus be able to claim his expenses incurred if his claim of anticipatory breach by Fiona is successful. A contract is rendered impossible to perform, illegal or radically different from what was originally agreed to due to an unforeseen event under the doctrine of frustration. The doctrine of frustration lightens the plausible harshness of the absolute contracts rule as per Paradine v Jane (1647), which commands performance in spite of......

Black Comedy

...prevalent Australian attitudes about masculinity, violence and racism through the use of characterisation, language, and performance space and proxemics. “the removalist” is the play that my group had re-enacted; in my group performance for the removalist, our group had staged the scene by creating different spaces throughout our original space that we were given and we also created levels descending on what particular block the character’s would be on like Fiona; she is a very quiet, lower class subtle character who is often over powered by her elder upperclass sister. The difference in the stages levels are shown when Fiona is pushed back onto the bench and sitting there quietly behind her sister whereas the spotlight is on Kate and the other characters. This shows the importance of Fiona’s role throughout the play. The scenes impact from the use of levels makes the audience automatically feel sorry for Fiona as she is always the ignored one and is mostly pushed back by her elder sister, creating a feel of empathy towards Fiona from the audience, this changes their experience. The play Norm and Ahmed the use of language and status throughout Buzo’s play helps convey to the audience the themes of racism and violence in Australian culture. During the scene we explored I played Ahmed the “outsider”. Throughout the play the use of space was used very limitedly as it was a short scene, where there was a bench and just one light showing down on us creating an uncomfortable ......

Away from Her Assignment

...disease. The onset of the film describes the lives of Fiona and Grant Anderson, who had been married for over forty-four years. They lived in Fiona's grandparent's home in Ontario for most of their marriage, and shared similar interests in their hobby's and lifestyle. The movie progresses by depicting their routine ski trekking on a frozen lake and casual readings together. The purpose of depicting aspects of their everyday life was to enhance the sharp contrast in Fiona's behaviors as her Alzheimer's progressed. At first, Grant believed that her moments of forgetfulness were just that, but the occurrences became more drastic over time. The turning point that clearly demonstrated Fiona's Alzheimer development was her wandering across the forest in the freezing cold, where Grant had to drive around town to find her looking at the sights over a bridge far from home. This led to an official diagnosis of Fiona's Alzheimer's disease, and left them with the difficult challenge with what to do next. The option to admit Fiona in Meadowlakes Alzheimer's care center was strongly supported by Fiona herself, and Grant was resistant towards her placement after visiting the center. After mild deliberation, Grant gave in to Fiona's request and she was admitted into the care center. A 30-day no visitation period was required, which completely devastated Grant who could barely stay hours apart from his wife. On the way to the care center, Fiona brought up Grant's infidelity when he was a......

About a Boy

...of Fiona’s suicide, falling in love, and Marcus’ arrest all culminate in the maturation of Will and Marcus’ and the genesis of interpersonal connections between. First, Fiona’s suicide causes Marcus to grow much older than his years, and to become in a sense the caretaker in the family. Fiona is Marcus’ mother who had split up with Marcus’ father a few years prior, a factor which had facilitated Fiona’s depression. Marcus had originally thought that his two person family was enough; he didn’t have friends in London, and thus was very socially isolated. He didn’t notice that two was a small family, “he’d always thought that two was a good number” (Hornby 75). Marcus worries about his mother after the suicide attempt and feels like he must always be watching her, out of fear that she would again attempt suicide. Suddenly Marcus realizes that he needed more people in his life, “But he could see the point now: if someone dropped off the edge, you weren’t left on your own” (Hornby 75). Marcus comes to realize the necessity of other people, and he begins to seek out the company of others. At this point Will, however, has just entered Marcus’ life, and watches as an observer as he witnesses Fiona in her unconscious state after they discover her overdose. Will barely lets the gravity of situation enter his mind, “it had all been very interesting but he wouldn’t want to do it every night” (Hornby 71). Even though Will imagined he didn’t care about Marcus’ problems, “No problem was......
