Lorax

...The Lorax A motion film called The Lorax provides a realistic look at how overconsumption has affected the small fictional town of Thneedville. In this town you have big houses, and even bigger cars, plastic trees, air quality so bad that you have to purchase the air you breathe. You soon get a glimpse of what is beyond the “city limits” of Thneedville which is utter destruction. Caused by the overconsumption of people and a man who sought to profit from people in the town. We are a nation of consumers who suffer from a horrible disease known as “Affluenza” the disease of over consumption. And Affluenza has plagued us to the point where children’s movies are being made about over consumption and spending. The lyrics of the opening song of The Lorax could be the theme song of the how Affluenza has plagued people today in America “With brand new cars, and houses and lawns”(Powell & Paul, 2012). This film had many examples from the book we are reading in class. The example of how houses are getting bigger so people can have a place to store more “stuff”. The reason why is because people continue to buy more things that they don’t need. This movie made me think of the main character Ted and once the movie progressed I connected him to John Beal from our reading. For very different reasons they both sought out to save, replenish, and protect the trees. For Ted it was so he could impress the girl he liked which then also stopped a greedy cooperate......

Interpersonal Essay Based on a Movie

...sex always gets in the way”, is the main theme of the movie “When Harry met Sally”. The script is a good example of the interpersonal communication ten stage model by Mark Knapp. This developmental model entails the stages of a relationship from it’s infancy to an ending. In the movie we can clearly identify all ten stages of this model. Stage # 1 - Initiating According to the Knapp model, the beginning of every relationship—especially an intimate, romantic or close friendship—begins with the initiation stage. This stage involves the initial contact with another person. In the movie the stage of initiation begins when Harry and Sally meet for the first time and prepare to share a day travelling together in Sally’s car from Chicago to New York City. During this stage Harry and Sally are introduced by Harry’s girlfriend and begin their trip. Stage # 2 - Experimenting The second stage of the Knapp model, experimentation, is usually focused on time spent between people getting acquainted. During this stage people usually making “small talk” and it helps prepare the stage for future communication and interaction. In the movie, the second stage begins shortly after they begin their long trip when Harry asks Sally “why don’t you tell me the story of your life?” There is lot’s of small talk and dialog; talking about happiness and who is more prepared to face death, to analyzing and interrelating to the characters of the movie Casablanca.

The Lorax and Ecocentrism

...Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax (1971) is argued as one of the most important pieces of environmental children’s literature, with educators expressing the work, “as a powerful story for teaching and learning, as a story that can promote transformational ideas in educational practice,” (Henderson, 2004). This high praise begs the question: why is The Lorax so successful at reaching out to the child reader? This essay will indentify the use of certain literary characteristics that Seuss incorporated in The Lorax, which stemmed from successful environmental children’s literature from the late seventeenth century to the twentieth century. It will establish the success of each work due to the theme or agenda it had that reflected the social and environmental issues of its time, and will then establish to what extent Seuss’s The Lorax stands as a strong example for ecocritics and educators alike, of an environmental children’s story and its impact on the child reader. To further understand the position of this paper, it is important to identify the nature of ecocentricism and the development of the interdisciplinary field. Ecocentricism is an ethical practice that “decenters humanity’s importance in nonhuman nature and nature writing and instead explores the complex interrelationships between the human and the nonhuman,” (Buell, 2011). The practice, in the last twenty years, has become a field of inquiry in response to “growing academic concern about the response of literature and literary......

Effective Communication Based on Culture

...Effective communication based on culture Effective communication requires fully understanding of the culture that is involved. That means to pass your message effectively, one needs to know their rules and values, languages that they speak and even gestures that they use to communicate. Different people think differently and therefore to effectively communicate with them, knowing their history is vital. The best way to understand this is to research on several different groups of culture that has sufficient information. In this case, deaf culture, whiteness and Arabic culture is considered. Deaf culture consists of a set of behaviors, beliefs, literary traditions as well as the institutions that are shared by communities affected by deafness. They use sign languages to communicate. Members of this culture, has an impressive way of viewing their condition. They term it as a different human experience rather than disability. Looking at them in the sense of a community or culture, they are often seen as a team of minority. This makes some of these communities to feel like they are ignored by the group that don’t understand their sign language. On the other hand, deaf people face another challenge when it comes to acquiring education. Institutions are primarily of hearing people and therefore, special institutions which are often not enough have to be constructed. So in case a deaf person is among the family of hearing people, they are forced to learn the language so that their...

Ethics Related to Sociology: Culture and Society

...Ethics related to Sociology Introduction Living in this world without any companion is like a world without color. It is like you have drowned from the deepest part of darkness. As the saying “No man is an island”, it is proven that a person can’t live within itself. You must have friends and socialize with them in order for you to make a wonderful living. Having interaction with other people—sharing some beliefs and practices may consider as part of sociology. Sociology itself means “the study of society”, where it came from the Greek word “socio” means “society” and “-logos” mean “the study of”. Sociology is the scientific study of society, of the ways of which society is organized and operates, and of the factors contributing to both societal stability and social change. It is concerned with patterned social regularities rather than with unique personal experiences. Simply means that sociology is the study of the things around the society. Studying the society also involves ethical values where people will be taught how to live doing the right thing over the wrong one. Though people have their own ways of living, each of us may consider that ethics is very important in everyone’s life. Based on Emerita S. Quito, the author of the book “Fundamentals of Ethics”, ethics is from the Greek word “ethos” meaning a characteristic way of doing things, or a body of customs. In general, ethics is meant to be applied in order to teach the people how to live essentially doing......

The Occult Symbolism of Movie “Metropolis” and Its Importance in Pop Culture

...The Occult Symbolism of Movie “Metropolis” and its Importance in Pop Culture Fritz Lang’s 1927 movie “Metropolis” is one of those timeless classics that withstand the test of time. Rather than becoming forgotten and obsolete, “Metropolis” is increasingly relevant as many of its predictions are becoming reality. We will look at the underlying occult message of the film and the usage of its imagery in the acts of pop stars such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue and others. Metropolis is a silent science-fiction movie released in 1927 by Fritz Lang, a master of German Expressionism. Set in a futuristic dystopia divided into two distinct and separate classes—the thinkers and the workers—Metropolis describes the struggles between the two opposite entities. Knowing that it was produced in 1927, viewing this movie today is quite an experience as many “sci-fi” aspects of the plot are eerily close to reality. Metropolis describes a society where the “New World Order” has already taken been implemented and a select elite live in luxury while a dehumanized mass work and live in a highly monitored hell. As we have seen in previous articles on The Vigilant Citizen, Metropolis is excessively echoed in popular culture, especially in the music business. Whether it be in music videos or photo shoots, pop stars are often portrayed as the character Maria, an android programmed to corrupt the morals of the workers and to incite a revolt, giving the elite an excuse to use...

The Lorax

...the article “Secular Stagnation” Clive Crook writes: “U.S. gross domestic product grew by just 12 percent in five years after the summer of 2009.” Based on a five year window, recoveries are significantly weaker than the past. One of the factors that may be responsible for slowing the recovery process down is the shrinkage of labor force. A drop in labor force suggests that there are fewer people of the age of 15 or older that are seeking jobs or employed which results in an increase of job losers, leavers, retirees and withdraws. Due to unemployment, some individuals decide to withdraw themselves of the labor force and therefore becoming discouraged workers who are not a part of the labor force. This interrupts one of the basic economic goals, which is full employment. In addition to that, because of the fact that the majority of the population lives off their income, a bigger number of unemployed people creates a loss in gross domestic product which may end up affecting the employed population. The fact that there are less changes and progress in the education system, as well as job skills field, has its part to play in the growth of an economy. Education and skill training falls under human capital which is a factor of production and moreover a resource. Improvement in this field is necessary because a society's production is based upon the productivity of workers, whereas the productivity of workers relies on their education and qualifications or skills. In order to......

An economy is the activities related to the production of goods and services within a specified geographic region. This can exist on a national scale, the trade and services within a country, but equally, if countries trade goods and services with each other, their economies interact, it can happen on a global scale, this is known as globalisation.

An ‘NIC’, else known as a ‘newly industrialising country’ is a country where industrial production has grown sufficiently for it to become a major source of their income as a nation. A ‘TNC’ is a company that operates in at least two countries. They often have management headquarters in their home country and operate in host countries alongside; examples would include GlaxoSmithKline, BP, Wal-Mart and Coca-Cola.
