Relationship between Nightingales notes and the movie clips
The detailed account of nurses working in the hospital in the movie atonement, during the time of war shows extensive research into the nursing practices of that period. After reviewing the notes on nursing by Florence Nightingale, a lot of similarities were observed in the movie and Nightingales notes. The concepts that I would discuss here are hygiene, Noise, Petty Management and Psychological support.
According to Nightingale, the greater part of nursing is preserving cleanliness. She even says that ventilation can never freshen up the air until and unless thorough cleanliness is observed. She states that carpets should not be used and that the walls should be painted with oil paint for easy cleaning. In addition to that she mentions about the concept of patients hygiene and nurses own personal hygiene. In the movie, it has been observed that the nurses are involved in mopping the floors, scrubbing the beds, cleaning the bedpans, and hand washing. The shimmering clean hallways and patient wards all portray the importance given to the concept of cleanliness. Here, when we see the nurses, their clean and crisp uniforms, wearing of the aprons and gloves when cleaning the bedpans, meticulous hand washing, and nail trimming all reflect the significance of personal hygiene.
In the notes Nightingale states how noise can be disturbing for the patient. She talks about the light, firm and quick step taken by the woman, which is required by the nurses. She describes it in such a way that the women can control noise due to their light, quick and firm steps. She indicates that the unwanted noise is the ‘cruelest absence of care’, that an individual is exposed to whether sick or well. She also states that the fidget of the clothes, the sound of the keys and the squeaking shoes would do harm to the…...

...An Analysis on Ek Ruka Huwa Faisala from Communication Perspective Submitted to: Course Instructor Managerial Communication Apex College Submitted by: Laxman Aryal Roll no. 8 Manikkya Apex College 2012 Ek Ruka Hua Faisala is a Bollywood movie directed by Basu Chatterjee inspired from Hollywood film 12 Angry Men. We the student of MBA are shown this movie to learn some lesson of Managerial Communication. Altthough this is a movie about different organizational behavior, it also gives a strong example of effective communication. This is a movie about 19 year old boy who was a suspect for murder of his father. There was a committee of 12 people assigned to decide whether boy was culprit or not. All 12 jurors must agree whether a young man is guilty or not of murdering his father. In this movie we observe the entire decision making process. Where each individual had different perception and different behavior in particular situation. Their personal opinion leads them to one wrong decision first but later on with just one leading, convincing, neutral and practical individual, they were able to think on the other side of the case and finally they reached to right conclusion. A switch from 11-1 to 0-12 is very rare in real life juries, but Ek Ruka Hua Faisla very convincingly depicts the switch. It achieves this by staying true to the realities of group dynamics through effective and proper communication. Once the objective of the group is established, they start...

...Metaphor for Telling It has been countless years since I have watched a movie about Native Americans, and even longer since I have witnessed a decent one. Most films on the subject of the Native American people are often set in the past and are habitually on the subject of brave Indian warriors. I had never viewed a Native American motion picture filmed in a present day setting, dealing with contemporary issues until I watched Smoke Signals. In the movie Smoke Signals, co-producer and scriptwriter Sherman Alexie uses unexpected humor, numerous significant flashbacks, and modernized Native American storytelling traditions to best narrate his story and the historical plight of Native Americans. First of all, Alexie employs wit by mocking stereotypical reservation life, the frequently biased film industry, and even his own people, the Native Americans. From the opening scene as tribal meteorologist and traffic reporter Lester Falls Apart covers his seemingly uneventful daily traffic report, as he has for the last twenty-six years, from the rooftop of his broken down KREZ van, we are introduced to the odd and amusing way of life on the “rez.” In another scene, Victor and Thomas are embarking on their solemn journey and are offered a ride by Thelma and Lucy driving down the road in reverse; again, it is suggested that they exist in a somewhat backwards nation. In addition, Alexie is quick to taunt the movie industry by belittling white cowboy heroes; he even goes so far......

Enders Game Book Compared to Movie

...for best novel in 1985 and 1986, respectively (OSC). In November of 2013 the movie adaption was released to the public with a runtime of one hour and fifty-four minutes and was met with mixed reviews garnishing only a “74% fresh” on the movie critics site (Rotten). Like many books that are adapted into movies, fans and critics usually side with the book being a better portrayal of the story than the movie version. Dennis Schwartz, a movie critic from Ozus' World Movie Reviews, expresses his views on the comparison between the movie and book by writing, “Might have worked as a clever thought-provoking read, on film it's a drag” (Schwartz). This common occurrence of the book being better than the movie can be easily explained by remembering that a movie should usually stay around the two hour time mark and that money is a big factor in adapting a book. The major differences between the book and the movie are that Ender’s timeline is completely changed, Ender is portrayed to be a more likable character, and that the cutaways back to Earth with Ender’s siblings Peter and Valentine are completely cut from the movie. These can all be explained through the logic that Lionsgate Films was trying to make a watchable picture that was closest to the book without breaking the bank in the process. The first major difference that I noticed when watching the film was Ender’s age throughout the movie was much different than his age in the book. In the novel when we first......

Movie a major topic in life, coming-of-age will be as well. For centuries, teens have been misunderstood by their families. They don't understand our thought process or why we even thought that way in the first place. That's when great writers and great producers came together to make films surrounding that. The coming-of-age films were most popular in the 80s--coincidentally while the fashion was also very out there and misunderstood. Personally, a movie that stood out the most in the Generation X era, was American Pie. Though it was very comedic, it's very relatable. The film focused on a group of teenage boys attempting to lose their innocence, but also shows the main character's parents constantly trying to "fix" him. As a viewer, you are immediately on the main character's side. Throughout the movie, his father is always trying to piece in on his life. The father feels that he knows exactly what the teen is experiencing because of him unexpectedly walking in on an unusual sexual act the teen was committing. Throughout the movie, he is giving him tips on sex and tries to "rectify" his "situation," when nothing the father is offering is necessary. The main character was trying to have actual sex and since he had a hard time doing so, at times, he'd use inanimate objects in replace of an actual human being. As teens "came of age," based off of previous experience, parents understood that that was the time that they should have "the talk." Realistically, that represented......

...panicky side of the youngsters. The main characters Moon, Ah Lung, Ah Ping and Susan in the movie represent the problem youth in the society. The monologue of Moon at the very beginning unveils the failure of educational system in Hong Kong. As an exam-oriented society, elites with good academic results are highly praised but for those cannot obtain high marks are doomed to failure. Moon being the later one leaves school at the early stage and winds up being a gangster. However, students who go to school are not free from problems associated. Fruit Chan in the movies shows the evil side of students, there is a scene which a group of secondary students bully ah Lung in the public toilet in order to feel a sense of superiority. Also, Susan in the movie are unable to manage pressure and bad times in her life, she finally resorts suicide in order to escape from the reality. The leave of Moon’s parent, the unconsciousness of Susan’s teacher and a driver for her death, connotatively show the reaction of adult on the youth problem, they choose dodging rather than facing up to it. The marks-based society creates a new generation with high marks but low emotional quality, Fruit Chan has depicted the youth problem in an humanistic angle, awakened the society on the flaws about the current educational system and the lack of support for teens in the society. Another local problem shown in the movie is the grass-rooted problem in HK. In Made in Hong Kong, the replacement of glamorous......

...person's values system. The values a person has will help them to make the right decisions ethically. It seems clear that a person’s ethics will provide a formation for conduct. Nursing involves providing ethical functions as it relates to their clients. The highest ethical responsibilities include acting in an unselfish way, being trustworthy, having integrity, and having a sense of honest authority. Nurses should take note of all situations involving complexity and abide in accord with the American Nurses Association Code of ethics for nurses (ANA, 2001). Nurses must strive to protect and defend a patient's sense of freedoms, sense of fair play, and entitlements. They should become a patient advocate and help structure the patient-nurse alliance. Nurses must also take a part in the proper and honest decision-making practices in order to locate the correct answers as it relates to the number of ethical problems that may arise. (Matzo,, 2004, p. 65). Nurses who use a code of ethics guides them through their many duties, including Practicing their responsibilities with a clear sense of kindness and appreciation for the inherent dignity, worth and uniqueness of every individual, always advocating for and striving to protect the health, safety, and rights of the patient, and helping to advance nursing by contributing to education and promoting public health initiatives. (Legal Issues for Nurses, 2010). By sticking to a code of ethics nurses will be able to......
