  1. Chew on This

    However, when the mad cow disease emerged, foreigners lost trust in the meat industry (241, 2). This, and the increasing criticism of how companies did their work, led to the creation of strict animal welfare rules (243, 1). This triggered fast food companies into appearing healthier, although this was more likely an attempt to appeal to the public, and to make their food seem less harmful. This could "simply be a public relations effort to avoid blame for America's obesity epidemic" (244, 2).

  2. My anlysis of the front page of a tabloid

    The headline refers to troops serving in Iraq and suggests that they are feeling angry and nervous because the American troops are not doing their bit to suport them and they are faced with death on a daily basis. The words angry and nervous are very negative and designed to make the readers pity the troops serving in Iraq and go against the Iraq war. This stance against the Iraq war is unsurprising as the paper is consistantly against the war and was the only tabloid newspaper to go against the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

  3. Original writing task

    Several years ago I had a feud with my mother; I was only an infant at the time. We were flicking through old photographs when I swiftly snatched one from her grasp. I saw a man, holding a newly born child. He was a peculiar looking man, with long mousy brown hair, thick bushy eyebrows and dark, penetrating eyes. I only caught a glimpsed of the photo, though I undoubtedly read 'Frederick, holding beautiful daughter Lydia' imprinted on the back.

  4. 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.

  9. GoodFella Film Review

    They double-parked in front of a hydrant and nobody ever gave them a ticket. In the summer when they played cards all night, nobody ever called the cops." He's like the kid in the candy store, only this time, stealing is the only way to get what he wants, with no fear of penance. The Movie starts with an extra close shot of a juvenile Henry Hill perceptively studying the gangsters from across the street; this scene was a stunningly creative treat for the eyes which made director Martin Scorsese one of the most pre-eminent directors of the era.

  15. Did Marie Antoinette deserve her infamous reputation?

    She left home at the tender age of fourteen, to be married to Louis XVI of France. In the early stages of her reign, she was much adored by the people of France, for her willingness to interact with her people. However this love soon turned to hatred. She did alienate people in the French court, and often invited an exclusive group of friends to her property in Versailles, and people who weren't included began to taunt the queen, with words that would be put into extremes in later years.

  16. GCSE Dance Extended Notes

    This is because I waned the audience to relate to the feeling of being confined and ordered around. Also, it mainly focuses on the idea of freedom being in the form of hope inside the personas head, rather than freedom being expressed in movements which would be associated with such an idea. I begin at centre stage on the floor curled up in a ball to symbolise the small space the slave is kept in, then ease myself of the floor in a swift manner, keeping my head in front of the rest of my body.

  17. Creationism vs Evolutionism

    There are so many different opinions and arguments as to if it should be taught in public schools. Many people may think, "My children are going to public school, not private school. Why should they have to learn about 'God?'" Well, why not? I believe creationism should be taught in public schools, as well as private schools. However, I don't feel as if it should be taught as a fact. It should be taught just as evolution is - as a belief or a theory. Aren't all individuals entitled to their own opinions and beliefs?

  18. Compare the representation of class and status for 3 music videos

    It is one long shot to begin with and the camera is angled so it shows the whole room that he is dancing in. During this, Jamiroquoi is all over the place, always on his feet dancing to the music which is very upbeat and hip. He looks like he is a laborer because of his clothes and tacky top hat but the room he is in looks like a mental hospital because there isn't much in the room apart from a few leather chairs and the white drawers on the wall.

    This shows that Darryl is an unfaithful husband and is having an affair. Thelma suspects this and states, "it's funny how many people want to buy a carpet on a Friday night. You would have thought they would have forgotten about it for the weekend." To that Darryl replies, "well it's a good thing your no regional manager then, and I am." He then swings his keys around on his finger as if to say, I am better than you, you are worthless. The second scene I am going to describe is where Louise is at work in the diner that she work at and she is depicted as having her hair tied

  22. A Christmas Carol (English Coursework)

    London's industrial age helped the UK to become rich and successful.

    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.
