* Students will write one critical analysis paper, 4-5 pages in length. For this paper, you will choose one of the films assigned in the class and develop an argument about one aspect of that film, or you may choose to compare and contrast one aspect in two different films. These papers should analyze (interpret meaning and significance) and evaluate (explain what is done well or poorly and why). Remember to examine the various significant contexts of the film(s), e.g., its place in cinematic and socio-political history, its national origins, genre, director, source material, etc. There are several sample papers in Film: A Critical Introduction that offer guidance. All thesis statements (or thesis paragraphs) should consider technical filmic aspects as well as narrative and thematic elements. Your thesis paragraph (including a thesis statement) is due to me a few weeks before the paper, and I will help you shape your argument and point you in the direction of good resources. You should consult and cite at least two scholarly sources and one popular source to support your position. (If you do not know if a source is scholarly or not, ask me about it.) DO NOT CONDUCT SCHOLARLY RESEARCH ON THE OPEN INTERNET. Cal Baptist’s Annie Gabriel Library subscribes to databases that index several film periodicals: Academic Search Premier, MLA International Bibliography, and the Literature Online (LION) You and your fellow panel members will lead the class in a discussion of the important elements in your film in regard especially to the reading assigned for that week. For example, if you are on the panel for Hero on Feb. 30th, you will focus primarily on the film’s cinematography, but you may bring in the subject of previous chapters that are pertinent to that particular film, such as mise en scène and narrative form in the case of Hero. * You are not expected to collaborate with the other panel…

Narrative Essay Revision
Resentment: Self-Inflicted and Self-Cured
Overcoming an obstacle doesn't mean that certain events have to stop occurring so that it's classified as overcome. I was once told, “Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.” I believe that to be 100% correct. I was raised in a culture where the man of the family, the father, the husband, holds the utmost authority and responsibility…
In the narrative, Shooting an Elephant, George Orwell shares his personal experience of a moral challenge he has faced. Orwell was an officer in a poverty infested place called Burma and was hated by many of its citizens. Burmese people saw him as an evil white imperialist. But one day, when a raging elephant tore through the Burmese town the citizens looked towards Orwell with burning eyes that persuaded him to shoot the beast. Every inch of Orwell’s body…
double the energy output of a solar panel.
Next, the process that converts light to energy is called the photovoltaic effect. The effect occurs when beams of light excite and release electrons. These electrons are attracted by a positive cathode and create an electric circuit. Then, the circuit charges other electrical devices. An advantage of the photovoltaic effect is that it is completely silent and requires very little maintenance.
Lastly, there are solar panels, which are used to power devices…

emerge and informs a different description of development. In this conception, the moral problem arises from conflicting responsibilities rather than from competing rights and requires for its resolution a mode of thinking that is contextual and narrative rather than formal and abstract. This conception of morality as concerned with the activity of care centers moral development around the understanding of responsibility and relationships, just as the conception of morality as fairness ties moral…
less specific Administrative Procedure Act (APA) review provisions that typically govern challenges to regulatory statutes When Congress originally passed the major environmental laws in the early 1970s, there was widespread suspicion among its members that the executive branch would not move fast enough on its own-that it had become a "captive" of private industry. Again in the mid-1980s there was profound disenchantment with the way the EPA was doing (or not doing) its business. Congress…
Nutrition Fact Panel
What is a Nutrition Facts Panel? A label provides detailed information about a food's nutrient content, such as the amount of fat, sodium and fiber it has.
Knowing how to read food labels is especially important if you have health conditions, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, and need to follow a special diet. It also makes it easier to compare similar foods to see which a healthier choice is. The more practice you get reading food labels, the better you can…
limestone and pink limestone members. These include pink, red, white, tan, and orange. Thick and thin bedded limestone argillaceous (clay) limestone, Mg-limestone (dolomite), mudstone, conglomerate (gravel), and sandstone. These sediments were deposited in a shallow non-marine lake. The difference in the sediments and the relatively thin beds form the delicate landforms in Bryce Canyon.
Dominated by Claron formation: 3 types: sandstorm, white limestone and pink limestone member
Prison in Appalachia Panel
This interactive lecture about the prison in the Appalachia Panel was very eye opening. It brought up many things that have been swept under the rug for no one to see and know. It was really upsetting and uncomfortable to listen to certain parts of the presentation. I didn’t realize that prisons have become so corrupt. I would have never guess that all the shows like Orange is the New Black and experiments like Phillip Zimbardo were actually occurring in real life. It…
