The tragic death of Trayvon Martin has been the catalyst for the latest racially-centered media frenzy in the United States. This issue of if the crime was racially motivated has dominated the news for weeks. Since the day after the shooting, the incident has been a featured story in nearly every major newspaper, periodical and news television show. Of the innumerable amount of crimes that are committed every day, only a small percentage make it into the news, and an even lesser number is ever a matter of national news. Opinions about this case abound, but one sentiment that the ubiquitous talking heads on television news shows focus on is the issue of race. It is likely that if this case were not racially involved (and the crime potentially racially motivated) that it would not be such a sensationalized account. How can we explain why this has become a leading story? Why is this incident so newsworthy? Bernie Goldberg, author of the book, “Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News”, appeared on the FOX Network’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on March 27 and said the following regarding Trayvon Martin’s killer,
“He’s being called a white Hispanic. If George Zimmerman won a Nobel Prize for medicine I guarantee you he wouldn't be called a white Hispanic. But they need the word "white" in there to further the story line, which is "white vigilante kills black unarmed teenager" so it -- what makes the story juicy for the media and what -- what justifies the existence in some cases of some of these civil rights leaders is that it has to be black victim, white shooter. If it were anything else, they don't care about it.” (Goldberg, 2012)
It is likely that if Martin’s killer were the same color, the story would not be national news. In this case, the fact that the killer is not black seems to be the most notable detail. His color certainly played a part in his…...

A Shot in the Light

...A SHOT IN THE LIGHT The story is about a “Good Samaritan”, who picks up an unlucky motorist named Ray. The “Good Samaritan” is the narrator. He seems like a nice and honest man throughout the whole story. In the middle of the story, Ray the unlucky motorist, shoots the narrator four times. The narrator doesn’t even get mad. Maybe it’s because of his wounds, but still. The reader can rely on the narrator, but Ray can’t. He expects the guy to die and then the narrator just don’t?! That’s the most unreliable you can be! Just a joke. The story is set in the past, at least it’s told like it’s something that has happened in the past. The story ends with these lines: I kept my promise. I like to think Ray kept his. Again, this shows the narrators reliability, and his good nature. The last couple of lines are told in present time. Like the narrator is telling you the story right now. Over a cup of coffee, maybe? Or tea, if you don’t like coffee. The narrator could drink both, because he is a good person. He has his own small jewelry business; he is friendly, calm and unsuspecting. After Ray shoots him, he feels no need to take revenge and no anger. Ray on the other hand, is the complete opposite of the narrator. Of course it’s a big minus, walking around shooting people, but his behavior has its reasons. Ray comes from a background of drugs and crime and a violent father. Ray’s plan has always been to shoot the narrator, from the moment the narrator picked him up. But the narrator......

Shot-by-Shot Analysis of a Film

...Shot-by-shot Analysis Life of Pi, a 2012 American 3D adventure drama film that composed of live -action and computer-animated adventure based on Yann Martel's novel. This film is directed by Ang Lee, a movie that tells a story within another story based on one simple truth. In the movie, the narrator pi, who was the only survived young man from the sinking Japanese ship caused by the storm. He made to the lifeboat, yet, he was alone in the center of pacific ocean without any supplies but with a tiger called Richard Parker. However, the theme of this film is not just this exciting adventure but is the implicit conflict between Pi and the tiger; Pi’s rationality of believing in God to the animality aspect of his personality, the animalistic side of human nature that he struggled with. Every scenes have highlighted this meaning of how they survived as a whole. However, I found the sequence of when the main character Pi has his emotional changes from fear tiger to kill tiger to the end of living with the tiger is interesting and it reveals the overall meaning of the theme of the film as well. In this particular sequence, the camera has used long shots repeatedly and frequently to align the audience with the filmed characters and with their feelings. The long shot in the looser framing and the wider angle of vision create sense of negativity between Pi the powerful and isolating environment of the ocean. In a image of this sequence, long shot of Pi catching fishes with his tools......

Long Shot

... The service condition, instead, requires that the eligible employees have to be still employed by Long Shot after the three-year reporting period. These conditions have both to be met to vest the options. Based on ASC 718-10-30-27 Long Shot should use the $9 grant-date fair value to measure its compensation cost. The codification determines that performance and service conditions are not reflected in the estimate of the fair value of an award at the grant date because those conditions are restrictions that stem from the forfeitability of instruments to which employees have not yet earned the right. Since the $6 grant-date fair value has the revenue target factored into the fair value assessment it should not be used. Plus to strengthen the previous stated paragraph, ASC 718-10-55-64 says “Performance or service conditions that only affect vesting are excluded from the estimate of grant-date fair value”. As mentioned above current conditions affect exclusively vesting and thus are not to be factored into the fair value at the grant date. Compensation cost is generally recognized from the grant date through the vesting date. ASC 718-10-30 requires an estimate of the requisite service period based on an analysis of all vesting conditions, explicit, implicit, and derived service periods, and the probability that performance or service conditions will be satisfied. Long Shot should recognize compensation cost associated with the stock options over three years, because......

...Ten seconds left. I can barely hear anything. I feel the vomit creeping up in my throat as the milliseconds go by. Everything is getting very blurry. Tension is rising. Who would have thought that we would be down by one point and I would be the one trusted to hold this basketball? Why did my coach want me to shoot the last shot in the first place? What do I bring on this court that is any different from what my teammates would bring? Every face on my bench is almost frozen, their eyes locked on to me and the ball. There are hundreds of people in the stands watching my every move. Deep breath. Every little thing has to be on point. Nine seconds. I just want to pass the ball away over to my teammate, get rid of it. Why not? Who cares what my coach says? He’s the one who put me in this situation anyways. Eight seconds left. Its just too embarrassing to miss THE final shot in THE final game of the season. I have earned every second I stepped foot on this court and worked too hard for this shot to be a miss. All the time spent practicing and all the injuries, I just cant let myself and everyone down. Seven seconds. I see everyone in the stands jumping up and down but can barely hear them. What do they want from me? i’m 18 years old for crying out loud! It’s not like I’m in the NBA here! I want to see them try and step foot in my shoes right now... Nonsense, focus. My defender looks really intimidating. His muscles contract as his thumbs rub against his fingertips. Boy does he......

Three Shots

...Three Shots Every body has to die and most people fear the death eventually. The fear encompasses the anxiety of the unknowing which can entail anything dependent on our age, our social awareness, the surroundings etc. However, apparently the fear will develop as people go through changes in their life. This is what the short story “Three Shots” by Ernest Hemingway revolves about, where a omniscient narrator acquaints the recipient with the main character Nick’s feelings. The story starts in medias res where the main character Nick is in the forest with his father and his Uncle George. Together they have went on a fishing trip into the forrest. Nick finds himself alone in a tent, in which he is looking back on last night’s happenings, thus the recipient meets with a flashback. His father and Uncle George have left the camp and instead they have gone fishing, and sudden Nick reaches the peak of his feelings. Nick is frightened, which is obvious when he walks trough the woods at night leaving the lake and the elder men “He was always a little frightened of the woods at night”. The darkness, the silence, perhaps the unknowing make him fear the death and it reminds him that he himself have to die eventually which causes to another flashback. In conclusion there is three parts of the story, which can be combined with Nick’s emotional stages. At first he realizes that someday he must die, “someday the silver cord will break”, which scares him and as a result makes him feel......

In the case, the only problem the members could think of was occasional incidents of cross-threading, that is, when a team member shot a bolt at an angle. Team leaders, however, could fix this familiar problem on-line in 30 seconds with a re-tapping tool. C. Another solution could be that they can always be prepared with backups of the seats. Because there are a lot of problems of similar kinds arise, they should always be prepared with backup seats so they can minimize such problem during the process of installation. 3. Where, if at all, does the current routine for handling defective seats deviate from the principles of the Toyota Production System? D. The current routine for handling defective seats deviates from the two guiding principles of TMM: First, the majority of the defective cars inventory were against the just-in-time principle, which insists on “producing only what was needed, only how much was needed, and only when it was needed” (2). Second, the current application is against JIDOKA principle, which insists on “making any production problems instantly self-evident and stop producing whenever problems were detected” (2).

...The shot One hour later Martin left the house through the backdoor. It was nearly dark now. He crept along the walls. Suddenly a bucket hit his foot that someone had left. The bucket made a terrible noise. “God dammit!” Martin said and began to run. He ran as fast as he could, towards the garage. Just when he reached it, he heard a shot. In the same moment he jumps into the garage, a bullet hit him and he felt a terrible pain in his left leg. He thought “ Dr. Olney ” as he fell on the ground beside the Land Rover. With great difficulty, Martin throw the macbook and the speaker that he had robbed from Dr. Olney, then crawled into the car himself so he won’t get busted and end up behind bars. He drove as fast as he could away from the house. He had an ugly pain in his left leg, he was crying a bit, but he did not have time to cry, the only thing that was on his mind at that time was that he didn’t want to go to prison so he kept on driving but what he didn’t noticed before was that his leg was bleeding like hell! He couldn’t really feel his leg anymore, and that meant that he could only drive with one leg, which is impossible. Dr. Olney yelled “Come back! And ran straight to his own car. He put the key in, and gassed up the car, drove right into the neighbours trashcan and yelled, “I’ll clean that up tomorrow!” Dr. Olney drove so fast that his hat nearly flew off and out of the window. Martin stopped the car and he looked back to see if Dr. Olney was there, but he couldn’t...

Shot Tracker

...Manish Adhikari Akshat Kumar Hans Li Pd. 3 – Kosek Title Basketball Shot Tracker Research Proposal Abstract We intend to make a device that tracks a player’s basketball shot. It will detect where the the shot was taken, whether the shot was made or missed, and display the information to a website. We will do this by using a wrist sensor that will track when a shot is taken and a sensor on the hoop that will detect when a shot is made. The data will be sent to a program that will process and display the information on a website. This program is intended to help basketball players improve their shooting. Problem/Purpose/Engineering Goals We are trying to create a technology. The purpose for doing this is that when people are practicing basketball, unless they want to create a new diagram every single time on paper and track where they shot from and whether or not they made the shot, they don’t receive feedback on their shooting percentage or anything like that. There is a mental part to playing basketball, and if someone knows that he is consistently improving his shot every day, then he will be more confident while playing and an overall better player. Our project hopes to make the shot tracking process easier and less time consuming. Background There’s always room to improve in basketball so our objective is to create a tool that will help optimize the rate of development of one’s shooting skill. While this technology already currently exists, we are......

...participant characteristics   10.14. What is meant by an additive and interactive effect as a threat to internal validity? Additive and interactive effects refers to the fact that the threats to internal validity can sometimes combine to produce a bias in the study which threatens our ability to conclude that the independent variable is the cause of the differences in the dependent variable. • One example of this kind of threat is called the selection-history effect. • The selection-history effect occurs when an event occurs in a multi-group design (such as the one shown in Figure 10.2) that differentially affects the different comparison groups. For example, if someone came into one group’s room and shouted the president has been shot by did not go into the other group’s room, we would expect a differential effect. • Another example is the selection-maturation effect. • The selection-maturation effect occurs when an event occurs in a multi-group design where the participants in one of the groups experience a different rate of maturation than the participants in a different group.     10.15. How does differential attrition threaten internal validity? Attrition simply refers to the fact that participants sometimes drop out of a research study. • Differential attrition can occur in a multi-group design (not a single group design), and it is defined as the differential loss of participants from the various comparison groups. • This is a......

Presently Apple is prospering and works on customer satisfaction direction, since today’s consumers are more education and technologically aware they see Apple as a reliable “partner” with reliable products. Apple constantly puts out new updates to the softwares, fixes bugs, and closes holes that make it harder to get. Also, big thing is Apple uses Intel chips which allow costumer to natively run Windows Software and Mac Os, so one can get two computers for the price of one. Another thing is Apple products retain most of their value. All of Apple Macs currently use Intel chips but the second point is that one can sell his/her 2007 Macbook pro for only a couple hundred dollars less than one bought it. All Apple products retain their value amazingly well, so people can turn around and sell it later for next to what one bought it for. As one of the Apple’s Loyal customer put it, “Find me any pc computer you can do that with, so that justifies TCO as well, if I know I can make most of the money back when I sell it, I can justify owning it.” Almost all Apple’s Macs are expandable.

...I have jello shots in my pockets. It's not comfortable, in fact it's wet and sticky. I don't like it. However, I still have them there and have made no effort to clean up myself. This is because, as I write this, I am drunk and have been my entire life. I have a rare condition that constantly ferments my food and drinks and produces alcohol inside my own body. This is an actual condition where a human is born with an abnormal amount of yeasts inside their intestines. When I eat my food is processed normally and enters my colon where it becomes fecal matter. This is where it gets interesting folks. The crap stays inside my intestines in preparation for exit from my you-know-where but as it stays inside the intestines, the yeast begins to consume any nutrients left, much like dogs eat their own steaming piles after taking a good one, and they create gases that are actually alcohol. The alcohol enters my bloodstream and provides me with a constant drunk feeling. Let me tell you folks, it sucks. I constantly take whizzes on cop cars, fall down laughing, and throw up on my best friend, whoever that may be that day. I have gone to doctors looking for a cure, but even the best ones just say to have a cup of coffee and try to balance the alcohol with caffeine. One actually hypothesized that the removal of my intestines would solve the problem. However, he also proposed the implanting of a snake carcass as snakes have roughly the same length and consistency of a human intestine.......
