Red Light Cameras Term Paper

… Red Lights Camera


Red-Light Cameras

Department of Transportation reported that more than 92,000 crashes have resulted in 900 deaths every year by drivers beating red traffic lights (Harvey 2005). Red light running or beating the red light has been identified as a significant cause of accidents at signalized intersections (Hakkert 2004). Studies on accidents at such intersections in the Australian states of Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland from 1994 to 1998 were conducted. They found that 15-21% of accidents were related to red light running. The U.S. General Estimates System, on the other hand, reported that of the 260,000 red light running accidents, 750 were fatal. The high-volume casualty required prompt attention and appropriate countermeasures to confront and solve the problem. A…. [read more]

Red Line Terrence Malick's the Thin Term Paper

… ¶ … Red Line

Terrence Malick's the Thin Red Line has been hailed as a masterpiece by critics around the world. By using the analytical skills I have learned, watching the movie becomes a real enjoyment. This paper will examine the film and its diverse elements, from its non-traditional use of narrative and voice over to its reliance on natural lighting, acting, editing, and camera shots to convey a realistic war time environment coupled with a spiritual aesthetic.

A recurring motif in the Thin Red Line is the use of light pouring (or filtering) through the holes of a leaf or the wooded canopy overhead. The symbolic imagery is used to evoke a sense of the otherworldly when one of the soldiers in the film…. [read more]

Red Sorghum: Film Clip Analysis Assessment

… This means Yu can place his

What is interesting about the sequence is the way that Zhang uses repetition of visual motifs to establish meaning in this sequence. The sedan-chair itself, the hood worn by the bandit, and the veil worn by Jiu-er when the bandit opens the sedan are all different forms of concealment, but they inform and relate to each other visually. Jiu-er's bridal veil and her sedan chair are both made out of bright red silk, and so therefore seem to indicate that they serve the same function: to mark her with distinction but also to protect her from the sight of other men. Meanwhile Jiu-er's bridal veil -- which comes as the biggest visual surprise in the sequence, as interior sedan-chair…. [read more]

Red Light Cameras Cost Benefit Analysis Term Paper

… Red Light Cameras

Cost Benefit Analysis of Red Light Cameras

The United States Department of Transportation published a study in 2005 which compared the costs of crashes in intersections with Red Light Cameras in order to determine exactly how cost efficient those camera systems are. The title, however, did refer more towards the safety issue involved. Researchers wanted to explore the efficiency in not only catching traffic violators, but also how Red Light Camera systems were affecting rear-end and right angle car crashed in and around intersections. Also, researchers wanted to see if the cost of operating Red Light Camera systems is actually beneficial, in terms of the amount of money saved from preventing or decreasing certain types of accidents caused by violations which are….

Red Light Cameras the State and Federal Term Paper

… Red Light Cameras

The State and Federal deployment of stop-light cameras set up specifically to catch and record drivers who run red lights at intersections is proving to be a controversial issue of safety and policing politics among motorists, tax-payers, governing officials and law enforcement. A flurry of partial arguments persist from different sides as to whether the cameras, which come at high costs to both state and county budgets, are actually causing more of the actual accidents they are intended to prevent. Arguably set in accordance to varying collections of statistical information and investigative research, there exists support for both the increased safety and also the declined safety that these cameras bring to the intersections where they are installed.

Problem Statement

The predicament then,…. [read more]

Sony Camera Functionalism Term Paper

… Sony Cybershot digital camera exhibits a blend of form and function. Formal elements convey function, and function is communicated via form. The features that the Sony Cybershot shares with pre-digital cameras include all the elements that make a camera what it is: a lens; some kind of viewfinder; and a trigger to take shots. However, the digital camera possess several features that demonstrate the different functions between a digital and film camera. The Sony Cybershot in particular offers user-friendly functions specific to the art, hobby, and science of photography. Moreover, many of the Sony Cybershot functions are hidden, embedded in the camera's hardware and firmware or simply invisible.

For example, image stabilization is a feature the Sony Cybershot boasts. The feature enhances the ability of…. [read more]

Police Technology Video Cameras Research Paper

… The agency recovered all the costs and financial restitution for the damages to the police vehicle, as well as medical costs for the officer."

The cameras have also improved the safety of the police officers on patrol since the would be aggressor would back off knowing that the actions were being recorded and if he behaved in a manner suggesting aggression or even assaults the officer then there would be footage to help pin him down. This effect was not only on the citizens stopped but also n the police officers on the patrol. In as much as their training does not revolve around the camera, it is only human that anyone would strive to perform to their best when they know their performance is…. [read more]

Nature's Second Eye Photography and the Camera Thesis


Photography and the Camera through the Years

Photography has gone a long way in recording and visualizing natural phenomena, with the camera as the device. Both have evolved through the centuries.

The precursor was the camera obscura in the 1700s. The first photograph was taken in 1835, the first patent for photography awarded in 1840. The first photo advertisement was produced in 1843. Two processes in the early 1800s were by Dagerreo and Fox Talbot. The term "photography" was coined. George Eastman set up his company, which produced and sold Kodak cameras. The cine-camera or color photography was invented. James Clerk Maxwell introduced color photography. Kodachrome slide film was invented and color prints were developed. The instant photography system and compact cameras…. [read more]

Personal Aesthetic Tends to Surround Color Essay

… ¶ … personal aesthetic tends to surround color and texture; the idea of a sunset coming through the clouds, or the sensual experience of the first Spring rainstorm and the smell of the soil in the mornings when the dew just begins to evaporate. This, for me, is noticing and celebrating the natural world and bleeds over into the way I dress, the jewelry I purchase, and especially the way I decorate my living space. I am fairly omnivorous when it comes to music and entertainment -- there are various levels of excellence one can find in something as simple as a sit-com, different movies, the theater, symphony, jazz, opera, etc. The music and the story tend to move me emotionally -- for instance, in….

Run Lola Term Paper

… Run Lola Run is constructed of motifs that symbolize the human relationship to the passage of time. Running is the most pervasive motif of the movie, but clocks, spinning wheels, shattering glass, screams, and also the color red are equally as important to Run Lola Run. Lola's (Franka Potente) bright red hair evokes themes like frustration, passion, intense physical energy, blood, and the fire of desire. Red is the color of the telephone Lola uses at home when she talks to Manni. The ambulance and the Bolle store sign are red too. As an ambulance color, red denotes emergency and the urgency of Lola's situation. Like Lola, ambulances rush because every second counts when a human life is on the line. Red is also the….

Obedience to Authority Gladiator Term Paper

… It is very difficult for human beings to disobey authority. Consider that we are conditioned from birth to obey our parents and our parental authority figures. But Maximus was a person that met Fromm's definition. He was and did walk alone and in a sense sin because he went against the status quo.

These rules of authority and social order are actually tools we humans have used to evolve with. As Fromm points out, during most of human history obedience has been identified with virtue and disobedience with sin. But I believe that Darwin would take this to the next level. It is not that we historically have believed in obedience, I believe we are driven by our very core and DNA to live it.…. [read more]

Art Violence and Social Engagement in Colombia Research Proposal

… ¶ … Colombia is the third-largest recipient of military aid from the United States and is at a critical juncture in its turbulent history. More than three million people have been displaced in Colombia during the past decade alone, and violent deaths and kidnappings remain alarmingly high. While violence is nothing new to the people of Colombia, their response to its sources and causes have been portrayed in the visual arts in various ways, with one of the most recent manifestations of this being portrayal such as the "The Skin of Memory," developed by the anthropologist Pilar Riano-Alcala and the artist Suzanne Lacy in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team in Colombia. Because art must also serve a social function and civic responsibility, this thesis evaluates…. [read more]

Oldboy an Analysis of Chan-Wook Park Term Paper

… Oldboy

An Analysis of Chan-Wook Park's Oldboy

Chan-wook Park's Oldboy (2003) is a South Korean film that is one part mystery and one part Greek tragedy. One might easily compare it to Sophocles' Oedipus Rex, but doing so still leaves much to be said of the Asian tour-de-force of the heart. The subject matter is, of course, taboo -- but the taboo is not really revealed into the final moments of the film, and then it is pressed home with a hammer. But even it is not the real theme of the film -- neither is revenge -- and Oldboy is often quoted as a being a "revenge film." It is a film about revenge -- and the twist at the end which reveals just…. [read more]

Artistic 'Techniques' Art Becomes Reality Term Paper

… Now he will haunt others too.

The script was written in a series of coffee shop all-nighters, caffeine and sugar and sleep depravation becoming language as I dictated the screenplay to another. Like the oral myths of singing bards and holy shamans, the story came to life as I spoke it to another, and became all at once concrete and fluid as he put it down on the page, his own interpretation of what I had said adding to the energy of it. Each photograph used n the film carefully taken using shadows and obscure angles to cause of a sense of unrest and unavoidability as they sit upon the back wall of the room which represents the boy's mind. The painting -- ah, a…. [read more]

Cinematography Order Cinematography and Film Film Review

… Another element that plays a big part in this 2009 motion picture was the different clothing, props, hair styles, and what the characters looked like through the entire movie because there was mostly men with dark trousers and hats with white looking shirts and some with suspenders from how the men had wore their clothes back in those days. You seen every women in the movie with a dress, her hair fixed up to a tee kind of pulled back or in a curly looking little bob hairstyle who always had make-up perfectly in place, and the lipstick from the movies is always noticeable that the cinematographers seem to add to these movies. The cars were old model As and Ts, and every car in…. [read more]

Closed Circuit Television a Law Enforcement Tool Thesis


The incursion of technology into nearly every aspect of modern life is an accepted part of life in the twenty first century. To that end, technology is a significant tool in the war against crime waged daily by officers of the law. However, the uses and potential abuses of that technology specifically tools such as CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) systems have given rise to entirely new debates regarding the degree to which such potentially advantageous technological advances violate individual civil rights. As White House executives have been quoted saying these technological advances can be sold as either a reassurance or more Big Brother (Delaney, 2009). What must be determined first though, upon weighing both the arguments for and against such technology is whether, benefit…. [read more]

Hero in Popular Culture Term Paper

… ¶ … Hero in Popular Culture- One very interesting aspect of the human experience is the manner in which certain themes appear again and again over time, in literature, religion, mythology, and culture -- regardless of the geographic location, the economic status, and the time period. Perhaps it is the innate human need to explain and explore the known and unknown, but to have disparate cultures in time and location find ways of explaining certain principles in such similar manner leads one to believe that there is perhaps more to myth and ritual than simple repetition of archetypal themes. In a sense, then, to acculturize the future, we must re-craft the past, and the way that seems to happen is in the synergism of myth…. [read more]

Criminal Justice Ethics the Ethical Term Paper

… Now that virtually everyone with a smart phone could take pictures or videos of police misconduct, the field of law enforcement is obliged to be ethical because one never knows when a phone / camera is aimed at the behavior of cops. Also, the television news industry now has several cable news channels and they compete vigorously to beat each other with revelations on misbehavior (whether real or questionable), cops included.

FIVE: Ethics is a field that is probably more significant now in the law enforcement milieu because the definitions of ethics are numerous and it can be a confusing issue. Understanding the importance of ethics is vitally important for a law enforcement officer because he or she will find that what is ethical and…. [read more]

… Crime Scene Analysis

Introduction- There is always missing information when analyzing a crime scene. The detective's task is thus to piece together the appropriate clues to find the most likely scenario with the data at hand, then attempt to validate that data based on further investigation. In our crime scene case we have the murder of a lawyer; we will call him Mr. Tort, Mr. T. For short. By all accounts, Mr. T. is a kind, upstanding citizen with no overt negativity in his life.

Romeo and Juliet Movie Production Essay

… There is an abundant use of jewelry for the male characters, who are seen wearing crosses, rings and earrings.

There is a creative use of sound and music for this film. Many songs chosen for the soundtrack are an eclectic mix, such as house music, rap, 80s songs, classical music and club tracks. The use of music, depending on the beat and timing, were used to enhance moments of heated arguments or emotionally frenzied scenes. Furthermore, use of sound effects for creative camera angles and special effect were use as well. The score of this film was often used to invite emotions of suspense, fear, or sadness.

The use of the camera in this film was another way to modernize this version of the play.…. [read more]

Julien Donkey Boy Term Paper

… Julien Donkey-Boy

Harmony Korine's Julien Donkey-Boy: A Technical Analysis

Harmony Korine's Julien Donkey-Boy is a famous example of a recent film that has attempted to challenge the hegemony of traditional filmmaking by subverting the rules via technical means. In this paper, I will analyze Julien Donkey-Boy from the perspective of camera work, editing, sound, and lighting, in order to show how Korine's highly innovative use of these filmic means is done in order to both show the limitations of traditional filmmaking, while also exposing hitherto unexplored possibilities of the medium.

The film opens with a televised clip of a figure skater. The footage is shot directly from a television screen, and has been slowed down, allowing us to study the movements made by the skater…. [read more]

Blade Runner: A Marriage Essay

… Because replicants were not human, albeit they were perfect human substitutes, it was considered acceptable in this society to enslave them because it was believed that replicants were not capable of feeling emotions.

This segregation between man and machine ultimately leads to a schism within society with the conflict subsequently leading to rebellion. One of the main reasons that the replicants rebel against humans is because they have been oppressed; not only are they slaves, but they are also not allowed to cohabitate with humans on Earth with their mere presence on the planet being considered illegal. However, had the replicants not rebelled, there would have been no need to organize blade runner units to quell the rebellion. Oddly enough, the line between man and…. [read more]

Criminal Identification Procedures the Dawn Term Paper

… Of all the constitutional guarantees, the Fourth Amendment casts the longest shadow on proposals designed to take samples from all individuals brought into custody (Kaye 2001). For all methods of sampling, there is a sharply diminished expectation or invasion of privacy compared to the traditional search for contraband or instrumentalities of a crime, and the normal reasons for a warrant and individualized suspicion are attenuated (Kaye 2001).

"Where the primary purpose of DNA sampling upon arrest is the acquisition of a permanent personal identifier for individuals who are in custody, the traditional 'true identity' exception to the warrant requirement for fingerprinting, photographing, and the like, as well as the 'special needs' line of cases support the collection of the DNA records" (Kaye 2001).

With convicted-offender…. [read more]

Cannes Film Festival Term Paper

… Tree of Life and Midnight in Paris

Malick's Tree of Life and Allen's Midnight in Paris: a Comparative Analysis

Two films that debuted at the 2011 Cannes Film Fest were Terrence Malick's long-awaited The Tree of Life and Woody Allen's nostalgic comedy Midnight in Paris. Malick's Tree of Life went on to win the Palme d'Or, and Allen's film screened out of competition. Yet both films (by American directors) employ the use of the fantastic -- Malick's by navigating the transcendental and the earthly through visions of cosmological grandeur and the simple day-to-day life of human existence in which characters experience joy, grief, innocence, guilt, love, hate, and redemption -- Allen's by sending his characters into an alternate reality in which they discover the limitations….

… Through the inundation of sights, sounds, colors, and action, the audience is thrust quickly into the uncertain fictitious universe where anything can happen and even the slightest change in course can completely alter the outcome for both Lola and her boyfriend and the audience that accompanies them on the journey.

… ¶ … U.S.A., Germany and England were the industrial and technological centers in the nineteenth century, than France was the dictator of culture and art tendencies that set cultural standard of the modern world in art, literature, sculpture and fashion. French painters and artists experimented with colors, shape and themes of works presenting works that reflected different aspects of every day life. Still the main merit of French painters of the nineteenth century and in general of most of their contemporaries is that they developed and established a new concept of art, which was democratic, available and understandable by representatives of different classes as it demonstrated universal values and had a universal esthetic meaning.

The paper discusses two paintings of French artists that refer to…. [read more]

Mine Safety Term Paper

Innovations in Mine Safety Technology

The recent string of mine disasters in the United States and China proof-positive that mines are dangerous places to work, and even with the most sophisticated mine safety technologies in place, accidents can and do happen all the time. Therefore, identifying opportunities for improvements in existing techniques in mine safety represents a timely field of endeavor. To this end, this report will provide a review of the relevant peer-reviewed, scholarly and organizational literature to develop an overview of the various types of sensors currently being used in rescue operations when looking for trapped miners, including gas sensors, heat detectors, pressure gauges and new camera technologies.
