When Susie Salmon is murdered on her way home from school, she leaves behind a family and friends who care deeply for her.

Cultural Norms, Fair & Lovely and Advertising

...Cultural Norms, Fair & Lovely, and Advertising 1. If advertised correctly I do not feel it is terribly unethical to sell a product that may not work perfectly. If it works at all then technically it works. However if I company is misleading and has false advertising I believe that is unethical. 1. Culture is taken very seriously in many countries and to go against ones culture just to sell a product seems unethical. If the company is from that country it seems to be demeaning the cultural norms, and if the country is from a foreign country then they are just being ignorant to culture of other countries. 2. When it comes to any cosmetic brand or makeup it may seem the makeup companies are implying women are ugly or not good enough. The Fair & Lovely advertising may seem demeaning but much like other brands they are just making up a storyline, obviously a cream is not going to make you find a husband or get a job. Every woman just wants to look better. If Indian women feel better with lighter skin (like most Americans feel more confident with tanner skin) then let them decide what they want to do to feel beautiful. 3. I believe HLL’s Fair & Lovely Foundation is a great step to receiving forgiveness and regaining lost customers, however some opinions cannot be changed. 4. After AIDWAS’s charges Fair & Lovely should promote without getting too deep, there is no reason culture and family issues need to be used to get a point across about a product. They can......

Case Fair and Lovely

...Jamaal James International Marketing Case 2-2: Fair and Lovely Just as tanning plays a huge role in most of the Western countries; in India Skin lightening treatments are becoming increasingly popular. The Indian people perceive fairer complexion females to be more dominant and respected. Therefore skin-lightening treatments became a huge industry which was dominated by Fair & Lovely from Hindustan Lever Ltd (HLL). They were responsible for 90 percent of the market shares until CavinKare Ltd launched Fairever, which grew and gained 15 percent shares in the market. Wanting to regain their dominance in the market HLL decided to put out their new campaign ads which to the All India Women’s Democratic Association (AIWDA) basically conveyed the message that “if she is not fair in color, she won’t get married or wont get promoted.” This of course created a huge problem in India, which forced HLL to switch their campaign strategies and pay more respect to the women of India and their culture. 1. I think it is very clear to say that HLL was ethical in most of its campaign to sell its’ product. The country and culture has had a huge demand for skin lightening treatments for a long time; HLL has done nothing wrong but tried to give the people what they truly desire. Many women think that their skin tone will define them as a woman in society, therefore they are willing to seek any means to acquire what they believe is the perfect skin tone. HLL saw a great opportunity,......

Lovely Hula Hands

...Reading Reflection- Lovely Hula Hands Thesis/Main Points/My Opinion: According to this letter written by Haunani Kay-Trask, she expresses her feelings about the tourism here in Hawaii. She states that tourists have outnumbered the Hawaii residence with a ratio of 6 to 1, and had the ratio of 30 to 1 when comparing the tourists to the Native Americans. She also found facts that showed Hawaii residence why we should dislike tourists. One of the quotes she has found says “tourism has been the single most powerful factor in Oahu’s crime rate”. So as you can see, there can be bad reasons to why tourism is bad. Tourism also has good sides to it, things such as creating job opportunities. Hotels, restaurants, Trollies/Buses, Tour guides, malls are all things that help benefit Hawaii. I for one know how much tourism is important, due to the fact that I dance Hula and Tahitian for them. Without these tourists, I wouldn’t have any shows to dance. I think that Haunani feels that tourism is just taking over our island a little too much. When she gave us the ratio of how many tourists we have here on the island, I thought to myself, “wow, that’s a lot more than I thought it would be. I guess I feel her pain, because I wouldn’t want people taking over my land especially because this place means everything to not only me but my family, friends, and other Hawaii residence that live here....

Oh What a Lovely War

...Are the songs of ‘Oh! What a lovely war’ a complete and accurate summary of the experience of soldiers on the western front? The musical ‘Oh! What a lovely war’ directed by Joan Littlewood in 1963 portrays the experiences and reality of the war in the four songs, sung by the soldiers, to some level of accuracy. However extracts from Banham, Luff and Vyvyen Brandon suggest otherwise. In some ways, the songs directed by Joan Littlewood do portray the reality of life on the western front and the dangers on the front line and in the reserve trenches. Joan accurately describes the soldiers who want to be ‘Far far from Wipers […] where German snipers can’t get at [them]’. The lyrics give the impression that the soldiers were faced with danger and they wanted to end the war to avoid being shot by ‘German snipers’. This evidence is supported by the Brandon extracts which look at the key issues of how the troops managed to endure the horrors of fighting in the trenches. The extracts describe how ‘at any moment’ soldiers could have been ‘shot by a sniper, gassed or blown to pieces by a shell, mine or bomb.’ This therefore consolidates the idea of the front line being hazardous and proves Joan Littlewoods’ portrayed impression of the war as accurate. Additionally, it can be argued that Joan Littlewood to some extent accurately describes the conditions of the trenches and what the soldiers had to endure. In the song ‘Far Far From Wipers’ it refers to bad conditions such as ‘damp’......

Lovely Bones

...Sally James EXP-201 Professor Atlas The Lovely Bones The story “The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold takes place in the 1970s in Philadelphia, and focuses on a 14 year old, Susie Salmon, and her family’s methods of coping with her murder. On her way home from school, Susie is taking a shortcut through a cornfield near her house, and is stopped by a neighbor, George Harvey, who says that he wants to show her an underground room. Mr. Harvey, however, ends up raping and murdering Susie that day. Susie watches from her heaven as her family struggles with their emotions about her death.

While her father suspects that George Harvey is the murderer, the detective in charge of Susie’s case, Len Fernerman, doesn’t have the evidence to prove that he is guilty because Mr. Harvey dumps Susie’s remains into a sink hole and collapses he underground room.

Lovely Bones Analysis

...HUMALIT A52 Miss Jo Almanzor Llamado, Alexandra E. Reflective paper on The Lovely Bones The first binary opposition I’ve identified in the movie is basically the idea of life and death. Obviously, we know that these will never meet. But in the story, there was actually an existing gray area between these two. Susie wasn’t gone neither frozen. She was alive. Just when we thought that these ideas will never meet. Susie was still “living” in her own perfect world. The second binary opposition I’ve identified is the concept of denial and acceptance. These are the things Susie’s parents were actually doing. Her dad, Jack, wasn’t ready yet to let go of Susie. He wanted to either kill or hurt the murderer for killing his daughter. He wouldn’t stop solving the mystery, but this is not the case for his wife. All she knows is that their daughter is already dead, and she just wants him to end whatever he was doing. Denial and acceptance are two different ideas but Susie’s parents were in these states because of the love for their daughter. The third binary opposition I’ve identified is reality and fantasy. Susie’s was living in reality. She’s somehow “in love.” She was able to experience the feeling of a first kiss, and also got pregnant at the end. These are things Susie wouldn’t experience anymore. All she can do is be happy for her sister. Susie was somehow able to experience being kissed by the guy she likes, but still through a different......

The Lovely Bones

...The Lovely Bones Review I'm the type of person that will pick up a book and read it until completion if I enjoy the book. There is nothing worse than purchasing a book because it received great reviews and your find yourself disappointed. The Lovely Bones was a bitter disappointment, no disrespect to Alice Sebold but I found myself bored and struggling to complete this novel. When I purchased The Lovely Bones at Borders, I asked the store clerk what she thought of the book. Not that it matters what she thinks but I have received some excellent recommendations on authors and books because of them. The clerk's response to me was "it was a waste of time". I honestly didn't know how to take that comment. We have our likes and dislikes when it comes to reading. I originally thought her response derived from this novel not being a happy one. The emotions you feel while reading this novel leaves you sad and grateful to have your children alive. However, I do understand what the clerk meant but I do not agree with her. Let me clarify, the first eighty or so pages engulfed me and I was very much into The Lovely Bones. The way Alice described Susie's heaven blew me away, I could see what she was describing. I was dreading reading about Susie’s demise but Alice handled this sensitive subject rather tactful in my opinion. I could feel and see what Alice was writing when it came to her characters but as the book continued onto how her family coped with the loss of their family......
