It has recently come to my attention that not enough people understand how great chicago has been to our lives. Each day we wake up and likely have one or more chicago lying at the foot of our beds. It is wonderful to be able to wake up and smile each morning because of this.

Social & Cultural Factors

chicago has a large role in American Culture. Many people can often be seen taking part in activities associated with chicago. This is partly because people of most ages can be involved and families are brought together by this. Generally a person who displays their dislike for chicago may be considered an outcast.

Economic Factors

It is not common practice to associate economics with chicago. Generally, chicago would be thought to have no effect on our economic situation, but there are in fact some effects. The sales industry associated with chicago is actually a 2.3 billion dollar a year industry and growing each year. The industry employs nearly 150,000 people in the United States alone. It would be safe to say that chicago play an important role in American economics and shouldn't be taken for granted.

Environmental Factors

After a three month long research project, I've been able to conclude that chicago doesn't negatively effect the environment at all. A chicago did not seem to result in waste products and couldn't be found in forests, jungles, rivers, lakes, oceans, etc... In fact, chicago produced some positive effects on our sweet little nature.

Political Factors

Oh does chicago ever influence politics. Last year 5 candidates running for some sort of position used chicago as the primary topic of their campaign. A person might think chicago would be a bad topic to lead a campaign with, but in fact with the social and environmental impact is has, this topic was able to gain a great number of followers. These 5 candidates went 4 for 5…...

...Both Norway and Australia have areas in the Antarctic that they own. Norway and Australia both have native inhabitants that can only be found in their own nation. Norway have the Sami people and Australia have the Aboriginal people, which we will expand on later. On the map to the right you can see where Norway is located compared to Australia. Norway is far north in the northern side of equator, in Europa. Australia is located in the Oceania ocean in the far south of the southern half of the equator. The distance between the two countries is approximately 14500 km (by air) Famous People from Australia There are many famous people from Australia. These are the ones that I think are best known by us in Norway. Hugh Jackman is one of my favorite actors. Hugh was born in Sydney in 1968. He has played in many good movies like “X-men: The Wolverine” and “Real Steal”. He has also been nominated and won many awards. Steve Irwin was a famous Australian wildlife expert. He got his recognition worldwide when he starred in the television series “The crocodile hunter” in 1969. After this he did many documentaries and series about the wildlife mainly in Australia. Sadly he died in 2006 by a stingray when he was filming an underwater documentary. He was also known by his special personality that was like no other. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Irwin http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0413168/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia%E2%80%93Norway_relations The Aboriginals......

...lost love. Thousands of miles away, Annie (Meg Ryan) hears the program and immediately falls in love with Sam, despite the fact that she has never met him and that she is engaged to humdrum Walter (Bill Pullman). Believing they are meant to be together, Annie sets out for Seattle to meet Sam, who, meanwhile, contends with an onslaught of letters from available women equally touched by his phone call. The movie melts the hearts of the viewers because it is a story of love that would go across the bounds to meet his true love. 9. Real Steel (2011)- Shawn Levy Classification: Science Fiction Appeal: Emotional Scene: A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up boxer who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. But behind the futuristic theme of the film, it is also tells about a father and son relationship. As the two goes into battle, they regained the love for each other,......

Social Identity: “You’ve got a Friend”—James Taylor My family members are friends and my friends are family. I am a mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, niece, cousin, godmother, best friend (for 48 years), friend and a colleague. I can’t imagine a life without relationship. Many of my older loved ones have died, and I miss them more than I can say - especially my mother who has been gone for 21 years, my grandparents, and my aunts and uncles. Sexual Orientation Identity: “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man of Mine” (Showboat) I like those fireman calendars and I lust after George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, David Tenant, and Robert Downey, Jr. (It’s okay; my husband knows). I am an advocate for Gay Rights. Cyber/Fantasy Identity: “Theme from Star Wars”—John Williams Okay, I’m a Sci Fi fan, so sue me! I love to watch Dr. Who, Alphas, Warehouse 13, and Supernatural! I like Zombie movies. Last summer, I was excited to get in to see the Supernatural and Dr. Who panels at ComiCon in San Diego. My daughter went to Con as River Song from Dr. Who, but I have not assumed a fantasy identity…YET.

...Assignment 1 Week 2 Danny Castillo English 225 Instructor David Preizler April 21, 2014 For my clip from http://movieclips.com/sKPe5-real-steel-movie-twin-cities-vs-atom/ is from the movie “Reel Steel”. It stars Hugh Jackman in a story where he is a former boxer that fights robots in a sort of Robot MMA in the future with his son. He plays the character of Charlie, and his son Max played by Dakota Goyo. The scene that we will be analyzing will be the one in where their robot Atom fights another robot named “Twin Cities”. The director for this movie is Shawn Levy (movieclips.com). In making a movie, that person is usually the director. “His or her role is often similar to that of the foreman, translating the screenwriter’s story so that the actors and crew can carry it out. And like the foreman, it’s up to the director to turn the elements he or she builds with—words, images, and sound—into something not just coherent but entertaining, even moving. It’s no accident that when films are described, they’re often talked about as the possession of the director—Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing, and the like”.(Goodykoontz/Jacobs). It’s the director’s job to make sure that everything in the movie goes exactly the way it should. He controls the way actors do things, whether they can improvise or not, down to overseeing the editing. He or she is the overall boss on the set. They interpret or take the screenwriters story and make it into a running......

...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......

...magazines and televisions. The media not only emphasizing that body appearance will affect self-worth but also present a culture of female beauty that is unattainable and sometimes dangerous for their health. Anderson and Di Domenico (1992) conducted a survey from advertisements and articles in popular male magazines and found out that males actually also do not escape the socio-cultural pressure to achive ideal body shape. The images of men with perfect physiques which has becoming more popular in movies and TV shows has affect the male’s body image negatively. Different from girls that tend to create a thin body shape so that they will look attractive, boys are more influenced to have muscular body just like how male stars such as Hugh Jackman always potray so they emphasize on exercise rather than dieting to achieve their ideal body image (McCabe & Riccardelli, 2004). Eventhough boys are less likely get insecured, they actually experience anxiety about their bodies. Other research found that the increasing expose of idealized body image in media has increase the dissatisfaction and weight disorders between boys and young men (Linda Smolak & Jonathan A. Stein, 2006). These media influence make young men feel extremely dissatisfied and very concerned with their body appearance until some of them tend to use harmful techniques to obtain the ideal body they want....

...suitably attractive price tag, and some better specs too. Later that year, the company tactfully launched the Canvas 4, and timed the launch just around the Galaxy S4 launch. Samsung’s Galaxy S4 already had major competition from Sony, HTC and the likes, and Micromax just piled on. It also went ahead to launch the Doodle series of phones launched at mere Rs 12,000, in the bid to compete with cheaper variants of the Samsung’s hot-selling Galaxy Note series. It remains one of the six smartphones that captured the imagination of the Indian buying public. Micromax was here to stay, and it was just three years since their first Android phone. Hugh boost By late 2013,  the company had managed to woo Indian audiences and create a mark for itself in the market, with some help from gimmicks. From Blow to Unlock to signingWoverine star Hugh Jackman as its brand ambassador, the company tried every trick in the hat. While signing an international star made it clear that it wants to reach markets outside India, the company decided to cash in on teenagers and youths with the MAd phone, designed to pay you for watching ads. It soon launched devices in Russia, its first big international market, and has plans for greater expansion later this year. Going by the IDC data released exactly a year ago, homegrown vendors shipped 46 million units, while Samsung and Apple together shipped 35 million units in the second quarter of 2013 in India.

Gay Marriage and Moral Panic

...the media in order to put up a front and express her sexuality and reasons for the same sex marriage. Direct quotes were mentioned throughout various newspapers on Valentines’ day including the Herald Sun, The Daily Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. Her statements to newspapers were often referred to as ‘impassioned… pleas’ in an effort to persuade audiences of her plight. Magda also utilized Network Ten’s The Project to announce that she identifies herself as being gay. Her emotional confession would have been used as an aid to further emphasise the needs of the heterosexual community. Her use of these mediums, especially on Valentines Day, was an effective strategy in order to spread her message. Olivia Newton-John and Hugh Jackman have also joined in on backing the Australian Marriage Equality campaign for reform. Having given their support to the cause by signing a marriage equality declaration, they have successfully pushed the issue into the spotlight. ‘Proving the prominence of the issue, celebrities’ signing the declaration is in part to persuade the Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott, to grant Coalition MPs a conscience vote on the issue.’ Through the appropriate channels messages are represented by the people for the people, effectively raising their own voices towards the implementation of gay marriage. Their voices are amplified to the masses by the Internet’s hyper-connected ability. Through these means, they provide the notion that People Power......

Brand Image - Services Marketing

...It’s far from being another ‘me too’ product offer, which is what can be said for many romantic comedies or sci-fi thrillers these days. Importantly, the one distinguishing fact to remember is that in the film, the price does not play a role in brand image or positioning as all products operating in this marketplace are subject to the same sell price. This amplifies the other components of brand image and adds to the complexities of consumer perception. With this in mind, in a deliberate way, the films brand image was cleverly focused around authenticity, heritage and credibility, which was exemplified through its all star Australian cast and crew, including the biggest Australian names in show business, Baz Luhrmann, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman (see figure 1.1) (Wikipedia, 2009). Figure 1.1. ‘Australia’ movie poster (Source: Wikipedia, 2009). From a consumers perspective, the distinctive and well thought-out movie poster which is replicated across numerous communication channels, exhibits the romantic connotations between the two lead characters, triggering the consumers emotional side, the well associated and globally recognised ‘red outback’, playing on consumers own experiences and perception of Australia, as well as the inclusion of native Aborigines all personifies the film perfectly and every element supports the unique brand image that you may expect from an Australian film. With such an all star cast who, in recent times have won industry awards and have......
