The Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 (Hays Code) If motion pictures present stories that will affect lives for the better, they can become the most powerful force for the improvement of mankind A Code to Govern the Making of Talking, Synchronized and Silent Motion Pictures. Formulated and formally adopted by The Association of Motion Picture Producers, Inc. and The Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, Inc. in March 1930.
Motion picture producers recognize the high trust and confidence which have been placed in them by the people of the world and which have made motion pictures a universal form of entertainment.
They recognize their responsibility to the public because of this trust and because entertainment and art are important influences in the life of a nation.
Hence, though regarding motion pictures primarily as entertainment without any explicit purpose of teaching or propaganda, they know that the motion picture within its own field of entertainment may be directly responsible for spiritual or moral progress, for higher types of social life, and for much correct thinking.
During the rapid transition from silent to talking pictures they have realized the necessity and the opportunity of subscribing to a Code to govern the production of talking pictures and of re-acknowledging this responsibility.
On their part, they ask from the public and from public leaders a sympathetic understanding of their purposes and problems and a spirit of cooperation that will allow them the freedom and opportunity necessary to bring the motion picture to a still higher level of wholesome entertainment for all the people.
General Principles
1. No picture shall be produced that will lower the moral standards of those who see it. Hence the sympathy of the audience should never be thrown to the side of crime, wrongdoing, evil or sin.

Code

..."The code of the streets is actually a cultural adaptation to a profound lack of faith in the police and the judicial system. The police are most often seen as representing the dominant white society and not caring to protect inner- city residents. When called, they may not respond, which is one reason many residents feel they must be prepared to take extraordinary measures to defend themselves and their loved ones against those who are inclined to aggression. Lack of police accountability has in fact been incorporated into the status system: the person who is believed capable of "taking care of himself" is accorded a certain deference, which translates into a sense of physical and psychological control. Thus the street code emerges where the influence of the police ends and personal responsibility for one's safety is felt to begin. Exacerbated by the proliferation of drugs and easy access to guns, this volatile situation results in the ability of the street oriented minority (or those who effectively "go for bad") to dominate the public spaces." (Anderson, Code of the Street). Anderson main argument in his research is that the behavior of many youths is influenced by the street culture or code. This “code” governs how youth from the inner city will react in a violent manor when faced with impersonal attacks or any show of disrespect. Through Anderson’s study he was able to give us the day to day struggle for some inner city children, and why they were unable to express......

The message this play left behind after many laughs was do not use others, plain and simple. The space was a well-constructed thrust stage however, the stage was not raised off the ground and the seats appeared to be mobile which lead to the belief that this is an Environmental Theater. As for the layout of the stage, there was a couch and a table in center stage for the first two acts, a door to the unseen outside front of the house upstage right, there were two large double doors upstage center leading to the backyard garden, and a raised floor upstage left containing a piano, a bookcase and a door leading to the home library. Stage left there was a half spiral staircase that lead up to the second floor which had a painting and lights that extended across to stage right. The second floor also contained the bedrooms for the house but the doors were not in sight. The detail was greater than expected: the hardwood floor throughout the first floor seemed to be genuine, the actual bookcase filled with real books not stage books, and the extremely large double doors with translucent glass and floral designs lead to the Garden, which featured an array of plants behind the doors.

Hay Fever

...Hay Fever A runny nose, stuffed nose, wheezing, facial pressure and pain, coughing, watery, itchy and swelling eyes are all symptoms of this yearly burden. Breathing difficulties at night, violent sneezing, and constant rubbing of the eyes are what this allergy is feared for. Although it is better known for only haunting victims during the early spring till late summer, this horrible problem can be around nearly all year long. Depending on one’s surroundings and when certain plants pollinate, Hay Fever causes a huge inconvenience for 26.9 million people in America, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Hay Fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, causes cold like symptoms due to an allergic reaction to various plants, mold and dust particles. Effects may be felt almost immediately after exposure and can even develop to an extreme state causing Asthma or Eczema. Though a common and not so deadly allergy, this affliction has plagued my family through the generations. Merriam-Webster defines Hay Fever as an allergic reaction to pollen. However, Hay Fever is not just a simple reaction and it is caused by so much more than just pollen. These outdoor allergies are caused by grass, tree and weed pollens, dust mites, cat dander, certain molds and stinging insects. Because there are so many different types of activators, outdoor allergies can last through every season. Most pollen from trees pollinate during the early spring. Grass pollinates during the late......

The Hays Essay

...LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY The Hays Essay Submitted to Dr. John Mclean, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of the course OBST 515– D03 Applying Old Testament Laws Today by Derrick Burney November 6, 2014 Christian and the Old Testament Laws (1) J. Daniel Hays approach is to give a principle factor to the Old Covenant laws which makes them practical for today’s believers. Hay’s believes that the New Covenant takes believers up from under the rules of the Old Covenant Laws (Romans 7:1-6), except when the laws have been restated by Jesus. One of the laws Hays gives from the Old Covenant laws which he use as an principle in today’s practical purpose is “Thou shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Hay’s believes when Jesus stated “You have heard the commandment that says, you should not commit adultery”. But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Mathew 5: 27-28 NLT). Hay’s believes since Jesus restated this law in the New Testament that makes it a practical law for today’s purposes. My understanding of the article is we have to understand the differences between the Old Covenant laws and the New Covenant laws. Believers must understand through Jesus teaching which ones are to be practical for today’s living purposes. Reconciliation of the Old Testament (2) When you look at the scripture Jesus states,......

The Hays Code

...The Hays Code How Did it Cause the Movie, A Streetcar Named Desire, to be Changed From the Play Abstract This paper will address changes from the play, A Streetcar Named Desire, that were made in the production of the movie due to the regulations of the Hays Code. Specific changes will be discussed. The conclusion of the paper will address if the changes still allowed the movie to effectively convey the original theme of the play. The Hays Code How Did it Cause the Movie, A Streetcar Named Desire, to be Changed From the Play In the early 1900’s, movie producers began shocking audiences by portraying themes that were socially unacceptable to discuss in public at that time. Films of this era were not censored, but state and local boards made the determination of whether a film could be shown or not. If they deemed a film as “inappropriate”, they simply banned it. The film The Birth of a Nation was a catalyst to changes in this. This film was banned in the state of Ohio. The company that handled the distribution of this film sued the state claiming it was a violation of the due process clause and the First Amendment. This suit went to the United States Supreme Court as the case Mutual Film Corporation v. Industrial Commission of Ohio (1915). In simple terms, the court ruled that films did not carry the same protections as books and other types of speech. (The Hays Code) This led to the creation of The Production Code of 1930, by Will H. Hays. This code became......

...Orchard grass: tall growing, high yielding bunch grass attains more summer growth than other grasses with an intensive system of cutting mgmt.. It persists well with alfalfa. Early maturing varieties are suitable for pure hay or silage, or with legumes for pasture. DO NOT use in mixtures with legumes for hay or silage. Medium/late maturing varieties do well when combined with legumes for hay, silage, or pasture.. Later maturing varieties are best to grow with alfalfa. Common orchard grass is NOT a variety, its maturity unknown but it generally heads earlier than named varieties. It is for general use, but should not be mixed with legumes for hay or silage. Orchardgrass should not be seeded with other grasses because of differences in maturity and palatability. Table 2. Seeding rates for timothy and a single legume in mixture. Species lb/A Timothy 2–6 with any one of these legume Alfalfa 8–10 Birdsfoot trefoil 6–8 Red clover 6–8 White clover 2–4 Potomac is an early maturing variety (early May), Dawn and Rancho are medium-maturing varieties (mid-to late-May), and Pennlate is a late-maturing variety (late May to early June). When seeding an orchardgrass-legume mixture, the two should mature at about the same time. This will enable harvesting of both species at proper developmental stages and improve the potential of harvesting top quality forage. However, because it becomes coarse and less palatable as it matures, it is best suited for pastures. The rapid......

...longitudinal micro data on about 100,000 Uruguayan students in public non-vocational Junior High school (grades 7-9) to identify the causal effect of grade failure on students' subsequent school outcomes. Exploiting the discontinuity in promotion rates induced by a rule that establishes that a pupil missing more than 25 days during the school year will automatically fail that grade I show that grade failure leads to substantial drop out and lower educational attainment after 4 to 5 years since the time when failure first occurred. Complementary evidence based on a change in the regime of grade promotion provides additional support for this conclusion. Keywords: grade retention, school drop out, age-grade distortion, regression discontinuity.
