  2. How does steven speilberg use filmic techniques to build tension and suspense in jaws

    If there was ever any justification for being petrified of sticking a toe in the ocean, it's Jaws! The tagline for the film, "Don't go in the water," indeed kept a lot of 1975 summer beachgoers and shark-hysterical swimmers wary; the film generated hysteria amid masses. Jaws was originally released in 1975, with use of a combination of methods which build suspense, tension and startle the audience. The tag line of the movie 'Don't go in the water' successfully sums up the plot, tone and overall theme of the film and creates an interest for those who want to discover the dangers lurking amongst the waters.

    Institutional or covert racism is part of the way that an organisation or group of people deal with minorities. It is argued that this is done by organisations such as the health service and police. This does not mean that everyone in an organisation is racist. Many people believe that because the health service is mainly white people, they are racist. There may be hidden racism which is racism that is not recognised by everyone. This may be in the form that Asian or black people don't get the same value or quality of service by the health service compared to white people.

  6. A Comparison and Contrast of the different views of love presented in Cousin Kate (Christina Rossetti) and The Seduction (Eileen McAuley)

    The men in both poems did not care to provide for their children and the women they had affairs with. I think the men were extremely unemotional and selfish. The young girl in 'The Seduction' is given vodka and made drunk by the young boy she met at the party; therefore he tricks her to have sex with him. The poem definitely shows there is both a physical and mental side to love. The physical part in the two relationships is mainly sought by the men involved.

  7. Stake holders report

    However if Chester Zoo increase their entry fee they may lose customers because some people may not have the money to visit the Zoo. Also it is easier to keep an existing customer than to attract new customers, so Chester Zoo should concentrate on keeping existing customers rather than trying to gain new ones. They may do this by providing special offers to existing customers to persuade them to visit again. Customers are also an important source of advertising because if a customer has a good experience at Chester Zoo they will recommend it to friends and family therefore attracting more customers to the Zoo.

  8. Are Footballers Paid Too Much

    Should football involve money? Should it be a voluntary decision because it's a hobby and not a job? Are the extravagant pay packets that some footballers receive seen as unfair towards other hard working, lower-paid jobs? Maybe because you never see a footballer turning down an extravagant amount of money. Maybe it's the manager's fault. And could that money go to a better cause? Every Premier League first team player has more than enough money to cope and have a very good quality of life. But do other people suffer because of this? Areas of Study. My research question links into the political and economic area of study.

  9. Do racist attitudes and behaviour exist within the English premier league and if so how can they be eliminated?

    Sports have always been an arena for criticism, hatred and discrimination of certain groups or individuals. In actuality, racism and other forms of discrimination, within the microcosm of sport, will forever be a reality. The fight against racism goes back into the years past slavery with discrimination against African Americans". The definition of racism is an action or attitude that separates a race of people. Racism in my view is an act that hurts or offends people's feelings because of their race. The law on racism in the UK today are The UK has been an increasingly high racist country for years, but the government is starting to act against racism meaning racist incidents are happening less and less.

  10. GLOBAL POVERTY

    Accountability and Transparency contribute to a well-informed public dispute and result in better policies with wider support. Broad participation can help improve the management of public expenditures toward priority areas and avoiding unproductive spending, such as generalized subsidies and excessive military spending. Broad contribution may also guide societies to tackle issues of social and economic inequality that are obstacles to poverty decline. Providing social safeguard to the poor requires mechanisms to moderate the impact of national and local crises and to reduce vulnerability. These include subsidies targeted to the poor, public works and "food for work" programs, sustainable, well-designed pension, unemployment and social assistance programs, and severance payments to those lay off during civil service retrenchment or public enterprise reform.

    Although he was to be hindered all his life by severe asthma, Che was a great athlete, and a keen rugby union player, even earning himself the pet name 'Fuser' (a combination of his mother's name - de la Serna, and El Furibundo - raging).

    Their most recent records show the following about the top 4 supermarkets in the UK today.

In an oligopoly, price is not used as a means to compete with other firms; as soon as one firm raises their price for a product, that firm will lose nearly every consumer that they previously gained from their firm.

  22. Investigation into the Internal and External Communication methods of a school (BCS GCSE - attained full marks)

    Examples of primary sources are: interviews, questionnaires, observations (e.g. From a museum), diaries, case studies or autobiographies (Although these could hold a biased view from the person who wrote it). Secondary research is research that isn't from its original source, like from a textbook or a website that documented on the topic it's telling us about. Examples of secondary research are: websites, textbooks, encyclopedias, videos, magazines or newspapers, and CD ROM software. Primary research can be good because you can get an eye-witness view of something if it is part of a real place or thing, rather from a picture from a textbook or website.

    I closed my eyes and listened. It was Mark. It was Mark screaming into the night. It was Mark being torn apart. I opened my eyes, slowly, and looked behind me. There was nothing. There were no red eyes, there were no bloodied teeth. Yet I could hear its breath so close, smell its disgusting raw hunger. But it wasn't there, Mark's cries told me that. It had followed Mark - the fattest one - meat on the carcass for a good feast. But I could still hear its breath, trapped in my mind, telling me it was near, that despite Mark's cries it was still hunting me.

    fortune tellers, looked for 'signs', followed astrology and heeded stories about the supernatural to help them make sense of their lives and the world they lived in. That was the reason why Shakespeare's supernatural plays such as Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream were highly popular. Romeo and Juliet endure a catalogue of misfortune from the outset of the play, starting with their fateful meeting at the Capulet ball, to the conclusion, where they both die in love with each other.

    This will help us not to draw inaccurate conclusions from our observations and assessments. We must also talk to parents and colleagues to let them know what we have seen, and share any concerns.

You should make sure that the setting has permission from the parents to observe their child, and try involving the childs parents in the assessment of their child .

"

The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) is a qualification which students sit at the age of 16. Most students are entered for 8-10 subjects at GCSE although there are some schools where individual entries number 12 or 13 subjects. University admissions tutors and employers are more likely to be impressed by the more moderate range of good grades which show application and commitment.

There is quite a lot of work in each GCSE so it's always advisable to plan for that and make sure you can cope with the workload. In the vast majority ofschools GCSE Maths, English Language and Science are compulsory and the other subjects you will be entered for will be options that you choose from a range offered by the school (in some establishments a language is also compulsory and in others, Religious Studies too). All in all it's worth taking a lot of time in Yr 9 identifying those which you have to take, and then finding out as much as you can about the others before choosing your options.

"

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare the representation of class and status for 3 music videos

    "Conclusion These Three videos are all good to compare because the situations are similar in the way that everybody is portrayed to be either high or low in class and status through camera angles, lighting ect. But they all have different story lines. Nelly is trying to get her husband out of her mind, JK is in rehab and the people in the Wiley video are getting through a day in the office. They all compare well in how different status and classes can be used in different situations. Jamiroquoi is high in status while Nelly is high in status but lower than the other people in the video and although Wiley isn't actually in his video, his puppets do a pretty good job of showing that he is high in status."

  • Compare the ways in which the two film openings present their characters and themes, and set up the basis for the story of the whole film.

    "I think that the opening of the more modern version appeals to me more, as I find it very interesting to see the clashing of setting and language working so effectively. The repetition of the prologue was also very good, as it made the opening much more memorable than Zeffirelli's version, something which is key for a good film."

  • Analyse and comment on the effectiveness of the media devices used to present war in sections of Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan.

    "In conclusion I would like to state that both films used their techniques effectively with the wanted effect imposed on the audience. Also, that the use of the camera shots was cleverly organised as they clearly let the audience know what was going on in every one of the scenes in both films. Also, the realism made the films seem more appealing as it made it seem as though it was the complete truth."
