Beautiful Mind

...“I have always believed in numbers. And the equations and logics that lead to reason…”(A Beautiful Mind). The movie, A Beautiful Mind captures the life of a mathematical genius' John Nash. In Nash’s early twenties, he studied at a prestigious school called the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The signs of mental illness started to unfold as Nash created his imaginary best friend named Charles. Another character he created is named Parcher, who works for the Central Intelligence Agency and desperately needed his assistance in deciphering Russian messages. “Diagnosed paranoid schizophrenia [at the age of 31], Nash spent the next three decades in and out of mental hospitals” (www.pbs.org). Throughout that time he eventually overcame the struggles of the disorder through his intellectual mind. Schizophrenia is a chronic, more or less debilitating illness characterized by perturbations in cognition, affect and behavior, all of which have a bizarre aspect, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders fourth edition. “A more modern definition of schizophrenia describes it as a long-lasting psychotic disorder (involving a severe break with reality). In which there is an inability to distinguish what is real from fantasy as well as disturbances in thinking, emotions, behavior, and perception” (Ciccarelli & White, 2012). In reference to the DSM-IV-TR, the characteristic symptoms of......

Beautiful Mind

...A Beautiful Mind In the movie A Beautiful Mind [JH1] John Nash has difficulty with dating and other types of social interaction. Nash gets anxious easily and stumbles. He has greasy, untamed hair and does not bath often. He sees, hears, and imagine people that do not exist. Despite his apparent condition a beautiful woman falls in love and marries John Nash because she can see him for who he really is. His wife sees his brilliant mind through the odd propensities. As John Nash’s schizophrenia is discovered she is the first to understand and tries to help him out. To me this teaches all of us a great moral lesson that we could all learn from. Nash’s wife loved him for who he is regardless of what he was going through.[JH2] [JH3] John Nash thinks the Russians are after him due to a project he worked on with the American Government. Throughout the movie, Mr. Nash is terrified of people coming to get him. He is a very fearful man and deals with that persistently, but eventually works to overcome it.

Beautiful Mind

...A Beautiful Mind (2002) takes place between the late 1930s and present day. John Nash is a mathematical genius studying at Princeton University with hopes of discovering his own original mathematical theory. John is socially awkward, has trouble getting along with his peers and his only real friend seems to be his roommate, Charles. At the university, John spends an unprecedented amount of time on an original mathematical theory and finally comes up with a theory that earns him recognition. Later, Nash then begins giving math lectures at MIT where he eventually meets his wife and starts his second job. Nash’s second job is top-secret, -and involves a mission to figure out where different bombings around the world will take place. Nash becomes paranoid after he drops off one of his top-secret code-breakers and things go awry. Things take a turn when Nash is supposed to be giving a lecture and people who he thinks are Russian spies start to chase him. The audience learns that these “spies” are from a psychiatric ward, and that they have come to take Nash into their care. These top secret missions and numerous assignments that Nash has been working on are, in fact, the symptoms of his illness -a psychological disorder called schizophrenia. In actuality, the assignments are not based on reality and are instead products of Nash’s mind. The audience notices first sign of Nash’s schizophrenia at this point in the movie, - when Nash is talking to Charles at the ward but in reality,...

Women Are Beautiful

...Women are beautiful By Maria Batrakova Group 21 D Free and beautiful, that was how one of the greatest innovators of photography, Garry Winogrand, pictured women. (Here you can see a photo of him: http://imgur.com/AjnXCe6) Due to Art Blart (Art Blart, 2011) he was considered as one of the most distinguished photographers of the twenties-century in America. Winogrand's amazing exhibition includes 85 spontaneous photographs taken between 1960 and 1975 in and around New-York city. (Series of his photographs provided with the following links: http://imgur.com/jNApIzk, http://imgur.com/fY51U1d, http://imgur.com/aTd0ImL, http://imgur.com/R1Jd7J7, http://imgur.com/K1cJdwO, http://imgur.com/MNQWicg) During the 60's the attitude to women totally changed. Inner and outer freedom were explicit, in some ways, sexually explicit. “Prince of the streets” depicted this social transformation better that someone else. Lola Garrido called famous photographer “the maestro of the moment”: “In short, Winogrand catches with his camera every detail by composing and giving natural meaning to the representation.” (Garrido, 2014). But the gifted photograther found the way in which beautiful creatures express their sexuality through their gestures, hairstyles, clothes and some other interesting features, he avoided naked pictures. Richard Woodward writes in his article the following: “Winogrand didn't dress these women in tight sweaters or pant suits, or apply their hair and make-up. Their......

The Beautiful Ocean

...The Beautiful Ocean The above-sea world has many wonderful and beautiful sights. As air-breathing, land dwellers, we can look up during the day and see the enormous bright blue sky with puffs of clouds that look like cotton candy, stars that flicker like little candles at night, and strong, tall oaks that look like skyscrapers. Being above water has many beautiful sights to offer but just where those beauties end another world with its own beauties begins. Scuba diving at a spot near my uncle’s house in Key West takes me to a whole new world. My uncle’s small beach house in Key West is one of my favorite places to visit. His beach house is a sea weed green color, and he hangs old bobbers and fishing poles, decomposing nets, and old brittle fish bones from its green walls. The water in Key West is a vivid turquoise blue that looks like a boat full of paint has spilled in it, and the beaches are as white as powdered sugar. My favorite spot to scuba dive is about a ten-minute boat ride off the coast of Key West. My uncle’s boat takes us out into the deep blue water. It is an old and noisy fishing boat that has traveled around the Florida Keys many times. Hearing the roar of its tired engine, smelling the salt water, and feeling the mist hitting my face from the splashing waves gets me ready to dive in the bright blue abyss. Getting scuba gear on takes a few minutes of tightening many straps and pulling zippers, but when finished, it feels like an extra layer of......

Life Is Beautiful

...Films such as Schindler’s List and The Pianist take a serious historical approach to the Holocaust, while films like Life is Beautiful take a different approach to it. It is the combination of romance, comedy, and tragedy that triggered many viewers into criticizing Life is beautiful as being oblivious to the Holocaust’s reality, therefore making it inappropriate. However, A filmmaker is not a historian, and is not responsible for Depicting the holocaust as accurate as possible, the film does in fact present the dichotomy of life before and after the holocaust, without leaving out the fact that thousands of people were murdered and battered in the duration of the holocaust. it is the honest presentation of human relations, the main focus between the love of a father and son and the artistic form presented in the film that make the film appropriate. It’s appropriate because filmamkers who portray the holocaust are not obligated to depict the horrors of the events. Holocaust filmmakers are not necessaraly historians who seek to portray historic events as they actually happen. It IS appropriate because the film presents, the dicotamy of Life before the holocaust and after. It is apporpiate becausebinigni was never oblivious to the holocaust in his film, because there are scenes that actually show the raw heartlessness of the holocaust. “Life is Beautiful” is a movie about the holocaust famous for the perspective the director chose to portray it.

Beautiful Observations

...Beautiful Observations There are many objects we look at every day, but have you ever stopped to really look at the meaning behind these objects? Recently, I did just that. There is a shadowbox picture that hangs in my sisters bedroom that I covet. I say covet because my mother gave it to my sister Tracy on her 21st birthday and I was jealous. Why not me, I thought. Inside its beautifully carved wooden protected home is several gorgeous details that captured my attention and made me wish I was the possessor of this breathtaking collage. Before I talk about the inside, I would like to talk about the carved frame. I enjoy touching it with my hands because of the beautiful carvings etched into the wood. It makes me think about a bible because it has thick edges. On these edges, there are indentions that make me think of little angel wings. If that isn’t stunning enough, let me tell you about the inside. There is a glass case inside the wood. On the inside of the glass is a big bronze heart that is shaped perfectly and has a rose running through it. Beneath the heart is an inscribed poem entitled “Daughter”. It’s a beautiful poem. The poem is written in calligraphy and it explains how a daughter is kind, loving and delicate like a rose. It also speaks on how a daughter is remarkable, beautiful inside, always thoughtful and considerate. You can look at this frame and tell it wasn’t the most expensive frame, but its beauty and meaning makes it seem like it cost a million...

Beautiful Day

...One beautiful day in fourteen twenty nine it all began, We wondered whether we'd make it, but alas, Allah's command. Starting with Kitaabs so little and new, Das Sabaq, Nahwa, and Sarf-just to mention a few. Through laughter and tears, we learned more about each other, Six years together helped us to know one another. We toiled through year by year growing in our 'Ilm as well, A tear drops mercilessly when upon it I dwell. Each one of you has taught me something different, In your special and unique ways, you’ve all made a difference. So small and young we seemed on the very first day, So distant the memory, it feels like just yesterday. Spending much time with my sisters twenty seven, May we be reunited forever more in Heaven. I ask each of you to forgive me for every time I hurt you, The times I lied to you, spoke ill of you, or upset you too. For the times you gave me a shoulder to cry on, a hug, and reasons to laugh and smile, For those times and more thank you, and continue to remember me once in a while. In your humble prayers, forget not the sister you once knew, And may the Angels answer your Duas with "Wa laka mithluhu." May today's completion of Bukhaari mark the end of a beautiful journey, But let it not end our love for our Kitaabs for the path ahead is thorny. May we be the Ulemaa' our Asaatidha worked hard for us to be, May we be ambassadors and spread Allah's word as His decree. I pray this isn't the end but we'll meet someday again, ...

Beautiful

...Beautiful By Siddiqah Cooper-Famakin I use to once sit and wonder what true beauty was; I would notice the outward neatness and great appearance of others and think that “this is what it is.” Not realizing that the same way they put on, they could also take off. It wasn’t until I began to grow and allow myself to be expanded that I realized true beauty must first begin within. I began to be able to experience true beauty by allowing love to come in; Love came in and saturated my heart and taught me to first love myself. After learning to love myself, I could then display love of immeasurable amounts towards God. When displaying love towards God, I love on His people. I began to love on the people of God by becoming sensitive to their needs; whether, Spiritual, financial, or physical. True beauty stepped in. I realized that it was not what was on the outside, but what was on the inside of MY heart. After God saw and noticed me operating in MY true beauty, He blessed me with a love that He knew would love me with the same kind of love that I put out. God blessed me with you, Olajireh Festus Famakin. I am truly grateful unto the Lord Jesus for you. You have come into my life and helped me to fully define true beauty. The beauty of you and me walking in the Garden of Eden with our Lord Jesus; I couldn’t ask for or imagine more. Knowing that we were created to be together as one, gives the heart something that it has been longing to adore. Olajireh, I......

America the Beautiful

...“Let America Be America Again” is a poem not about just one group of people, but about African Americans, immigrants, poor white people, American Indians, and any and all groups who have been left out. When Mr. Hughes says: “I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart, I am the Negro bearing slavery’s scars. I am the red man driven from the land, I am the immigrant clutching the hope I seek— And finding only the same old stupid plan Of dog eat dog, of mighty crush the weak.” (Hughes 697) He speaking is for everyone, except the rich and privileged as we see in the line that says: Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land! Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of satisfying need! Of work the men! Of take the pay! Of owning everything for one’s own greed (Hughes 697) It is important for us all to remember this land is for everyone, not just the privileged. Reading this poem and passing it on to others is a good way to remember what this country initially stood for and what most people are still fighting for. At one time America stood for liberty, equality, and the land of the free. When Mr. Hughes states “Let it be the dream it used to be” and “America never was America to me” we understand that he never has felt America was equal or free, but we also see that Mr. Hughes wants America to fulfill the promises of freedom, liberty, and equality. I enjoyed this part of the poem because it reminded me of why people came to this country and still come to this......

America

...meaning of America? Perhaps the initial thought is the most literal meaning of the word for the individual and how it relates as a geographical location on a map. Quite possibly the more profound meaning of such a term is the philosophical paradigm of America is how it stands as an establishment of freedom for all and retainment of certain God -given rights. Such an individual would see the beauty in wanting to share a concept with the rest of the world and not be content in thinking that America is not merely a place, but it is a way of life that is meant to be enjoyed and explored. For thousands of years, mankind has desired to uncover the secrets of happiness and success as we journey across the vast sphere of this mortal world we live in. Although there are many interpretations as to how life began and how it will all end, the idea of America seems to give balance to the need of attaining a higher sense of existence. Many students believe that the name Ameri ca is named after the great explorer Amerigo Vespucci, but scholars will argue that its etymology is based on various sources in world history and although the name is attributed to Vespucci, it is a culmination of meanings that give it a majestic sound. We have often described America with a feminine title and support the idea that it stands not only as a map discovery from centuries ago, but a state of safety and peace. As a perfect blend between indigenous culture and European ingenuity, America is......

A Beautiful Mind

...A Beautiful Mind John Nash- A brilliant mathematician, John’s troubles begin during his time at Princeton. He begins to hallucinate, consistently carrying on conversations and relationships with people who never existed. To make matters worse, he is already anti-social, and has a tendency to isolate and bury himself in work. As time passes, his condition worsens. He begins to believe that there is this elaborate scheme against him; he believes he is being forced to work for the government to decipher codes. That they inserted a coded chip in order to keep track of him, and if he doesn’t comply with their wishes, they will expose him to the Russians, who in turn will kill him. This interferes with his personal and work life tremendously. Although he is able to carry on the basic everyday tasks such as taking care of personal hygiene and eating, he is not able to differentiate the real world from his imaginary world. Eventually, the situation gets to be so extreme that he is placed in a mental institution for a certain period of time, undergoing shock and insulin therapies in order to “treat” his condition. Professor Nash’s case is a very straightforward and meets the criteria for Paranoid Schizophrenia. To be clear Schizophrenia is not the same thing as multiple personality disorder, because Schizophrenics don’t have problems with a split personality but instead a split mind. Hence the Latin derivation “Schitz”Split and “phrenic” meaning mind. Mind in the sense of what is......

America

...What is it to be American? America. The land of the free, home of the brave. Live for apple pie and baseball! We sure do know how to appeal to the masses, right? Come live here and you’ll have so many freedoms and rights. But wait, you’re not a man? Hm, your chances for success are a little less. Oh, and your gay? Don’t plan to marry your partner, unless you move to only 5 of the 50 states that allow it. Oh wow, and you’re not white? Sorry, you may not find too many lucrative opportunities here. America is quite the facade. We are so fast faced and rely on Starbucks and energy drinks to get us through the day. We fool ourselves into thinking we are healthy just because we ate something “low-fat’. When we look in the mirror, we “really haven’t gained that much weight”. Our society teaches us ways to make excuses. “I haven’t had my coffee yet.” “There was traffic.” “My kids got up late.” “The dog ate my homework.” It’s always someone else’s fault; the responsibility is never on the individual. We lie to ourselves and others to make our lives seem so ey need to be and only growing… right along with our waistlines. We place restrictions on alcohol and marijuana, but not on fat content. If we took a moment to really evaluate the reasons we are so fat, then maybe we wouldn’t hold the title of fattest country. It really isn’t a noble honor. There are so many statistics and studies that have been done on this subject, but we’re not doing anything with it. Sure, there are places......
