... n combat, they focused their anger on the villagers of the province. According to Fred Widmer, a member of Charlie Company, we never really got into a main conflict per se . . . So the whole mood changed . . . You knew there was an enemy out there- but you couldnt pinpoint who exactly was the enemy. And I would say that in the end, anybody that was still in that country was the enemy. It was under these conditions that Lt. William Calley was instructed to lead Charlie Company to Son My in Quang Ngai Province and destroy a suspected Viet Cong stronghold in the hamlet of My Lai. The more hostile the area was, the more frustrated and hostile American soldiers were toward those who lived the ...

- Chasing Amy - 1,015 words
Chasing Amy Framing is a vital part of the film making process. It sets the mood, brings attention to sutleties, and can show us the real intentions of a character. For example, would the scene with the famous shot from between the legs of Mrs. Robinson in the movie The Graduate be as memorable if it instead showed a close up of Dustin Hoffman as he entered the room? Or the final shoot out in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Would there be more impact with an American shot of Clint Eastwood? The answer is obvious, of course not. The Kevin Smith masterpiece, Chasing Amy, follows those memorable scene's by showing the evolution of the two main characters, Holden (Ben Affleck) and Alyssa (Joey ...

- How Did Hitler Come Into Power - 1,657 words
How Did Hitler Come Into Power? Cause and Effect: How did Hitler Come into Power? A dichotomy is a division of two entities into mutually exclusive or contradictory groups. In Viva Zapata, it was mentioned that its not the laws that govern men, but men that govern men. There is no dichotomy present here because the two arent mutually exclusive at all. A country is only as strong as those who lead it, and the laws that govern it. Without strong and enforced laws, man wouldnt have power. And without man, the laws wouldnt have power. But, the people govern the land, and they are by far more powerful than the laws. They can create and destroy laws. They are the ones who enforce the laws. People ...

- Lord Of The Flies - 821 words
Lord Of The Flies Lord of the Flies Director Peter Brook based Lord of the Flies on the novel by William Golding. The film, released in 1963, is the tale of a group of upscale British schoolchildren who are being flown out of London to the supposed safety of the South Pacific before war erupts. Their airplane crashes and the lads are left to fend for themselves on a remote island. The storyline takes the boys from innocence to savagery. The film did not receive rave reviews from critics. The film version takes away some of the creative imagination that comes from reading the story, but its images are as shocking as one might imagine little boys turned into violent savages(Webster, Apollo Gu ...

Mrs Dalloway While writing and revising Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf was corresponding with E.M. Forster, who was working on A Passage to India. In September of 1921, she records in her diary: ``A letter from Morgan [Forster] this morning. He seems as critical of the East as of Bloomsbury, & sits dressed in a turban watching his Prince dance'' (Diary 2.138).

- Parasites And Their Virulence - 1,242 words
Parasites And Their Virulence ABSTRACT Why do some parasites kill the host they depend upon while others coexist with their host? Two prime factors determine parasitic virulence: the manner in which the parasite is transmitted, and the evolutionary history of the parasite and its host. Parasites which have colonized a new host species tend to be more virulent than parasites which have coevolved with their hosts. Parasites which are transmitted horizontally tend to be more virulent than those transmitted vertically. It has been assumed that parasite-host interactions inevitably evolve toward lower virulence. This is contradicted by studies in which virulence is conserved or increases over tim ...

... d eventual collapse (Georgi and Georgi 1990). Host immobility increases the opportunities for female mosquitoes to find and feed upon hosts (Read and Harvey 1993). Infected dogs have large numbers of D. immitis microfilaria in their circulatory systems, again increasing the likelihood of ingestion by the insect. Many infected dogs eventually die from heartworm, but in the process the parasite has ensured transmission. Similar debilitating effects have been observed in tapeworm-stickleback interaction; infected sticklebacks must swim nearer the water's surface due to an increased rate of oxygen consumption caused by the parasite (Keymer and Read 1991). Parasitized sticklebacks are more li ...
