... statements that change every day. The other reason for the diary is so that in the future, people will be able to read what really, and to inform them about beliefs on the party. Like Winston, I believe George Orwell wrote 1984 in order to allow a communist country to be revealed, the Soviet Union. Orwells goal was to expose the falsehoods of the Soviet Union as the model of a socialist state. He also wanted to reveal the dangers of totalitarianism, the deterioration of objective truth, and the well thought-out manipulation of Oceanias common peoples through propaganda. The Ministry of Truth is where history and facts both significant and insignificant are rewritten to reflect the party' ...

- 1984 Analysis Of Predictions - 624 words
1984 - Analysis of Predictions We are in a world of uncertainty and we can only guess and make predictions about what tomorrow will bring us. The book 1984 by George Orwell, was written in 1949 with his predictions about the future in 1984, thirty five years later. The part that interested me the most was where Orwell explains how we will no longer think on our own and that our thoughts and emotions would be controlled by the "thought police" for example. It was interesting to read about what a person thought in the past about todays society and read how some of the predictions came true. Freedom was taken away from everyone, they did what they were told and they had to obey, or harsh punish ...

- As Bees In Honey Drown - 1,299 words
As Bees In Honey Drown On October 16, I went to see As Bees in Honey Drown presented by the Fortune company at Theater in the park, located in Flushing meadows park. The timing of the show was 6:00 p.m., but I got to the theater by 6:10 due to the unexpected traffic for the Mets game on the same night. When I got to the theater, people were still getting tickets for the show. I rushed into the theater to get a good seat (the show had general admission). Most of the audience were in their fifties and up. There were a few in their 20s who were friends of the actors. There were about 100 seats in the theater; about 60 were occupied. I chose to see a play in a small theater because I felt that I ...

- Film Production - 1,797 words
Film Production In the period previous to the 1930's, the predominant form of filmmaking was that of the crank camera. This is not to say that motor-driven cameras were not possible. However, the motors to advance the film were so large that they were simply too cumbersome to be effective. Thus, it was the cameraman himself who would crank the film at a steady rate to expose the frames. When it came to showing the film, on the other hand, motor driven projectors were quite convenient, and by the 1920's a standard 24 frames per second was established for projecting films. Filming, however, remained unstandardized due to the inherent variation in recording speeds, since it depended directly on ...

- In 1949, The World Was A Substantially Different Place Than It Is Today Thirtyfive Years - 688 words
In 1949, the world was a substantially different place than it is today. Thirty-five years from now, in the year 2035, one can only imagine what changes will have taken place in society. Thirty-five years ago, in 1949, George Orwell's vision of the world as it would be in 1984 was horrific. Orwell describes his vision in his book Nineteen Eighty-four. "Nineteen Eighty-four depicts the horrors of a well-established totalitarian regime of whatever type with great power and skill and force of imagination." The definition of totalitarianism is a system of government in which one political party aims at total control over the lives of people, as by employing a powerful secret police, restricting ...

- In The Novel 1984, George Orwells Predictions Of The Future Are Really Advice, Dont Let The Government Control Every Aspect O - 476 words
In the novel 1984, George Orwells predictions of the future are really advice, Don't let the government control every aspect of your private lives. If we allow this we will be turned into robots of the system. Perhaps it is also a look at what is already. In many ways we are controlled, we are robots. In kindergarten we are taught how to be that way. Stand in a line, don't talk, hands out of pockets, fire drill, bells ringing. We are truly controlled by words and bells. Nine-teen-eighty-four has come and gone; however that doesn't mean we are safe. The author's view of the future is no longer even close to accurate. It will NEVER happen that way. No, today we have far BETTER ways of this hap ...

- Marie - 1,335 words
Marie And Pierre Curie Marie Sklodowska ( a.k.a.) was born in Warsaw in 1867. Her parents were teachers who believed strongly in the importance of education. Marie had her first lessons in physics and chemistry from her father. She had a brilliant aptitude for study and a great thirst for knowledge; however, advanced study was not possible for women in Poland. Marie dreamed of being able to study at the Sorbonne in Paris, but this was beyond the means of her family. To solve the problem, Marie and her elder sister, Bronya, came to an arrangement: Marie should go to work as a governess and help her sister with the money she managed to save so that Bronya could study medicine at the Sorbonne. ...

- Nineteen Eightyfour: A Grim Prediction Of The Future - 1,079 words
Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Grim Prediction of the Future Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Grim Prediction of the Future Nineteen Eighty-Four was written between the years of 1945 and 1948. Orwell got the title from switching the last two numbers of the publication date. In Orwells criticism of a perfect society, his book became known as one of the greatest anti-utopian novels of all time. The books message is so powerful that some say it went so far as to prevent the sinister future from realizing itself. Althought the book starts out as the story of a neurotic, paranoid man, it quickly turns into a protest against a quasi-utopian society and a totalitarian government. The book appears to be a satire at ...

- Richard M Nixon - 1,463 words
Richard M. Nixon Richard Nixon was elected president in 1968, but many of his moments of triumph and failure occurred before this time. So many of these early accomplishments, along with his major accomplishments while in office as well, have been shadowed by the Watergate scandal. From this, we are able to see how vital the President of the United States really is. It shows us what is expected of the President, while in and out of office. The President represents his country, and the people do not tolerate it when their president does not represent them in a good way. Richard Nixon is a prefect example of all these things. He also shows how no one is above the law, not even in the highest p ...

- Tele Education - 3,949 words
Tele Education 1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of Tele-education Tele-education has a long history beginning with systems like that for teaching children in Australian Outback, the British Open University and other such organizations. These built on the idea of correspondence courses where course materials are sent periodically by post and augmented the experience with broadcasts either on radio or on TV. The problem of student isolation was addressed partially through techniques such as telephone access or two-way radio links with teachers. At the end of 1980s, the vest majority of distance education throughout the worlds was still primarily print-based. Technologies used for distance educa ...
