Film analysis of Jaws
JAWS COURSEWORK The film that I will be analyzing will be Jaws. The film JAWS was a trend in the summer of 1975 smashing all box office records. Over taking many box office hits and collecting in more than $100million in its initial theatrical run, and launched the career of director Steven Spielberg. The reason why it is set on 4th of July is because it is one of the busiest days of the community and a lot of tourist come down onto the beach. At the beginning of the film the music that's plays at the back ground is soft and quiet. This makes the audience feel suspicious that something is going to happen, as the shark swiftly moves through the weeds in the deep murky water the tension on the audience builds up. The instrument that is playing the music at the background is a cello. This instrument is mostly played at a funeral. The director Steven Spielberg has used the instrument to frighten the audience when ever they hear the music kick in. on the beach when the second attack took place everybody was having fun and playing around. The people on the beach were all relaxed and they were all chilling out by listening to the radio. This makes the audience fill safe and less tense from a shark attack. When the shark attacked its victim there's always a pause of silence. This shows death because there's no more noise of the victim crying for help and crying in pain. It also

"Comparing the mean ratios of shell height/diameter of the Patella spp on an exposed and sheltered shore"
A2 Biology Investigation "Comparing the mean ratios of shell height/diameter of the Patella spp on an exposed and sheltered shore" Rebekah Riley Candidate number: 5037 Centre number: 28384 Background Information Limpets are slow moving molluscs, characteristic of rocky shores and are very well adapted to life on the seashore. They have a hard shell to protect themselves against predators and damage from moving rocks, and a large muscular foot that enables them to clamp firmly onto rocks to conserve water and maintain their position during rough weather. The most common limpet is Patella vulgata. The conical shell of Patella vulgata can be up to 6 cm long with radiating ridges and the apex central or slightly anterior. Orton (1928) has shown that individuals that inhabit the upper shore generally have a taller shell and smaller shell length when compared to juveniles and lower shore organisms. The thickness of shells is believed to be concerned with heat insulation and water conservation. Patella vulgata is found wherever there is a substratum firm enough for its attachment e.g. on rocks, stones and in rock pools, from the upper shore to the sublittoral fringe. It is abundant on all rocky shores of all degrees of wave exposure although the highest densities of Patella vulgata coincide with wave-exposed conditions (Fretter and Graham 1994). The species is not usually

I, David Vivian-Currie, had been used to the upper-class life until I was forced to join the war through National Service. I had received the dreaded letter on 29th May 1944, a week before it detailed me to leave. I was to help recapture France from the German's. Until I had received the letter, I felt that I had lived quite a pleasant life: I had attended Dunce Hall in North London and, at the age of thirteen, had moved onto Eton, where I became a school prefect in my final year. My father, John Vivian-Currie, was a well-established banker who had always tried to give me the best opportunities in life. After realising his success in banking, I decided to give it a try after I left Eton, and by the age of twenty-five, I had risen to the position of my father's assistant. He had avoided National Service due to age reasons. I however, had not. Due to my schooling I entered the army as captain, so I was in a better position that most of the soldiers. However, I still knew that I had virtually no chance of surviving. Today, 5th June 1944, I was sitting in the tiny transport boat with the remainder of my platoon, preparing ourselves for the journey to France, that would decide the rest of our lives. There was not a cloud in the sky, however, it was still quite brisk, I was glad that I had decided to put an extra pair of breeches on, but it didn't really matter, for I would
An Experiment to Investigate Species Diversity at West Runton Beach.
An Experiment to Investigate Species Diversity at West Runton Beach Aim For this investigation, I am aiming to investigate the species diversity at West Runton Beach. The aim is to research the distributions of substrates, plant life and other organisms, comparing them with each other and relating it to the tidal zonation. This will hopefully show us how each factor of the environment affects the others. The experiment will be a line transect using a quadrant down to parts of the beach; from the shore to the other end; by a groyne and down the middle. I hope also to see how this affects the ecology of the investigated areas. Objectives The objective of this experiment is to see how different factors of environments at this particular beach affect other factors. I intend to learn and gain a broader understanding about niches: which biotic and abiotic factors prefer which conditions. I also intend to see how the populations are structured. Apparatus In order to carry out this experiment we will need the following equipment: One metre squared quadrant A tape measure Pen and paper with clipboard Walking boots or Wellington boots Method To carry out this experiment I will need to maintain the following instructions: . We will do the following by the groyne and down the middle of the beach 2. I will gather all my equipment and make sure everything is prepared
Are the sea defences at Minehead effective and have they enhanced tourism?
Are the sea defences at Minehead effective and have they enhanced tourism? Introduction Minehead is located in the South-west of England, on the Somerset coast (as shown in pictures 1 & 2). The area of sea is subject to the second largest tidal ranges in the world, 14m. Over the years the tides have been a mixed blessing, with it's vary fast running currents. The tides have allowed Minehead to develop into a busy seaside area with their harbour. Minedhead has also been flooded on numerous occasions, for example in 1910, 1936, 1981, 1989, 1990, 1992 and twice in 1996. Picture 1 History/ Background Minehead has had some form of sea defence for several years. When the town was just a small hamlet the only protection from the sea was by a high beach, which was backed by a natural shingle and cobble ridge. However with the town growing rapidly, the ridge was gradually replaced with a masonry wall. Minehead's harbour to the west, 'rip-rap' groynes were placed along the beach which contributed to a major loss of the beach material since the early 20th century. The old sea wall which was under attack was suffering frequent damage, but despite all of its repairs the wall had reached the end of what was called its 'useful life.' This meant that the government and local community found
Birling Gaps and Eastbourne's coastline.
Introduction My project is on Birling Gaps and Eastbourne's coastline. Their grid references are 553,960 (Birling Gap) and 630,003 (Eastbourne). These are both situated in the south east of England on the south east coast. The reason we are doing our work on these particular places is that these places have a recurring problem. Erosion. Birling Gap and Eastbourne are both areas of coastline along the south east of England. We are focusing on these areas because they are areas, which the cliff-face is being eroded away. The erosion is happening at an incredible rate. This is because the cliff is made from chalk, which is a soft and easily eroded rock. Also, another factor affecting the erosion on the cliff is the fact that there is no coastal protection. This is because it is only a small hamlet and has only a few cottages in it. Birling Gap has quite a lot of history to it, a long long time ago it wasn't by the sea. It was miles inland and it was grassy and thriving with animal life. These animals eventually died and their bones and other body parts are what make up the chalk that is there now. The cliff was made very slowly; in fact, every 2 millimetres of cliff took a staggering 75 years to be made. Birling Gap is home to the Seven Sisters. The seven sisters are the seven highest points of the coastline. A diagram of the "seven sisters." A photo of the "Seven
Introduction The project is about how the northeast Norfolk coastline should be managed, the coastline is suffering badly from erosion, some places are worse than others and there are a lot of sea defences put up, some of this is due to global warming, with the seas rising it will put more pressure on the cliffs, the Yorkshire coast down to the north Suffolk is mainly bolder clay so it is wearing away extremely quickly and the coast is very low lying land the combination of the two could be disasters. On the coastline around Norfolk the long shore drift travels from north to south down the coast, this happens in all the coastlines in Norfolk it's the same system around, not just little bits, the long shore drift carries different bits of materials to different beaches. There are a lot of different defences some are: sea walls, rip rap, gorgers, gabions, granite reefs. Method On the 23rd of May there was a school field trip organized and they visited the following locations: Overstrand, Mundesley, Happisburgh, sea palling and Winterton. In order to carry out these investigations we had a variety of tasks. Observing the environment closely, we made notes, which included field sketches, and also took photos. The erosion occurring at each place, together with the soil type, land use, bolder clay and defences. Details of our findings are included later on in the project. Long
Ecology of Sand Dunes.
Ecology of Sand Dunes There are six main physical types of dunes which rely on the position of the system in relation to the direction of the shoreline. Three of these being spits, offshore islands and nesses project towards the sea and are generally extending seawards. They are characterstic where the prevailing wind is offshore so in England would be the East Coast. The other three types which are bay dunes, hind shore dunes and machair are found found where the prevailing wind is onshore so a constantly being driven back on to the land behind the shore by the wind and are found on the west coast. Dunes are known as sub-maritime coastal habitats as they are not plagued by occasional flooding and are not very salty. Dunes can very in size greatly with the height increasing over 25 meters on some coasts and can vary greatly in width and length. Dune vegetation Dune vegetation varies according to stability, moisture content and calcium carbonate content of the sand the dune is made up of. In order for vegetation on the dunes to grow plant succession has to occur. Marram grass colonises the dune (fore dunes) and spreads its tuberous roots just under the surface of the sand, and forms an underground web that helps hold the sand in place. Though marram grass stabilizes the soil for its own survival, an inadvertent side effect is that it makes it possible for other kinds of
Travel Writing - Protaras is a captivating resort drenched in sunshine, unspoilt beaches, fishing coves and tiny inlets.
Faye Mellor Travel Writing Protaras is a captivating resort drenched in sunshine, unspoilt beaches, fishing coves and tiny inlets. This is the place where I was lucky enough to spend two whole weeks during my summer holidays. Protaras is a town on the island of Cyprus; it is located in the white washed town area of Paralimni, which is known to the Cypriots as the 'land of windmills'. This is due to the whole area being dotted with some 1500 windmills, which bring up water from the underground for irrigating crops, mainly for the infamous Cyprus potatoes. Within the grounds of the 'Malama Holiday Village' the hotel my family and I were staying at had a private beach for hotel guests only. The beach was surrounded by caves for the utmost privacy and the sandy beaches were a brilliant way to let the day unfold before you. One of the most famous places for beaches on the island is a place called Cape Greco, which is on the very tip of the island. It has its own share of beaches and coves. Sea cliffs conceal these amazing sea palaces which are natural rock sculptures created by the sea. Another famous beach is Fig Tree Bay, which is known for its golden sands and clear blue waters. During the vacation we took a boat trip that took into Cape Greco and to the village of Dherynia, the last village before the green line, which has been separated the island since 1974. From this
