John Q Essay In the movie “John Q”, the director Nick Cassavetes builds tension before the climax by using different tactics such as intense sounds, props, lighting, costumes and sets to create a deep impact on the audience. For instance, the director used the music “justice of the heart” which has a very sad and depressing tone throughout the barriers of insurance to show his struggle and how John kept trying even though he never succeeded. He also zoomed in on all the papers John had to file to make the audience feel sorry for John since no one likes to fill out a bunch of paperwork but he dealt with them anways. I also found it very interesting how in some scenes John wore a cap to show that he is an ordinary guy, while at other scenes when he goes to an office, he does not. In my opinion I think this shows that he has respect for authority while his best friend wore a cap everywhere. It also builds tension when the producer zoomed into the calculations, the red numbers in the calculator really attracts the audience eyes to make them see how the money was not even near what he needed. Then he had to go to even more offices and stand in even longer and tiring lines, but sadly the results were never that impressing. Another intense moment was the one caused by the heart monitor. The way it kept decreasing,that red color and the beeping could really tense an individual. It was also very depressing and annoying once the wife called him to let him know

The Great Nick
In a book, there are many people that could be a narrator, and picking one person is crucial for a novel. The author F. Scott Fitzgerald managed to pick the greatest narrator that he could out of all the characters he had in his book The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway.

action. Each narrator’s characteristics influence their positions and opinions throughout a book. In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby”, Nick Carraway describes himself as a morally correct, nonjudgmental confidant who crosses paths with the prodigious people of the East and in doing so witnesses Jay Gatsby’s ephemeral dream of lavishness and love. Nick ultimately proves to be the most duplicitous, judgmental, and superficial character in the book who cites Gatsby’s misfortune as the evidence…

What Impression do we get of Nick as Narrator in Chapter 1 of The Great Gatsby?
Throughout Chapter 1, we read the story through Nick Carraway, the narrator of the story. We get to see how he sees things, and what he thinks of all the other characters. In the first chapter of the book we see Nick as quite an interesting narrator because he first seems reliable but it seems as we read further that he is seeming more unreliable.
For example a hint to Nick's true moral character is given on the first…

As the story progresses, Hemingway reveals no apparent plot; following Nick as he spends his time by the river becomes the focus of the story. Instead, looking past at the text’s obvious direction, careful…
Non-executive directors need to be independent not only of management, but also of any business or other relationship that could interfere with, or be perceived to interfere with, the exercise of independent judgement.
When determining the independent status of a director, the board should consider the following:
1. Is the director a substantial shareholder of the company, or an officer of (or otherwise associated directly with) a substantial shareholder of the company?
2. Is the director employed (or…
