Secrets in the Cellar Case Study

… Secrets in the Cellar

The purpose of the present paper is to discuss the issue represented by child abuse. The theme is father-daughter incest, while the main points of the analysis will be represented by the symptoms which the victim exhibited, the type of offender, the engagement strategies used by the abuser, as well as the profile of the non-offending mother. These points will be discussed as the story develops and the final part of the paper will be an attempt to understand whether intervention, treatment or prevention strategies might have been employed in order to change the development of the situation.

Jonbenet Ramsey Case Study

… Jon Benet Ramsey: Case Study of a Murder

The whole country was shocked when 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey was murdered in her own home on Christmas night, 1996. Her father found her body in the basement of their home the next day a little less than eight hours after she had been reported missing (World Law Direct web site). JonBenet's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey were very affluent. Her father, who had just sold his company, was former president and CEO of Access Graphics (a computer services company John Ramsey started in his garage). He reportedly had a net worth of $6.2 million (Maloney & O'Connor, 2003; and Bardsley, 2006). JonBenet's mother Patsy had been Miss West Virginia of 1977. JonBenet lived with her mother and….

… ¶ … Operational Plan

Development and Implementation of Operational Plan

Just a few years ago, hotel restaurants were generally nothing to brag about, but things have changed in substantive ways in recent years. Today, the competition is fierce among hoteliers to provide their guests with the best in what is available locally and from around the world to help draw them into their facilities and keep them there. To this end, this paper provides an operational plan for a hospitality enterprise for the refurbishment of the Lake House restaurant located within the Lake House hotel, Daylesford, Victoria. A description of the company and the restaurant to be refurbished is provided below, followed by the aim of the operational plan, the internal and external business environment…. [read more]

Production: Gaumont-British Producer: Michael Balcon Term Paper

… Hitchcock manipulates the audience into sympathizing for a man that he has already shown as reprehensible. Clues are provided in advance: the audience knows that Uncle Charlie is the man who robs and kills rich widows because the tune "Merry Widow Waltz" and couples dancing to it are hauntingly ubiquitous. In one of the final sequences, when young Charlie is trapped in the garage -- in one of the attempts on her life by Cokely, the audience knows more than the family members, who are blissfully unaware of Charlie's predicament.

There is a close relation between Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt and Orson Welles masterpiece "Citizen Kane." There is a deliberate use of over lapping dialogs where actors do not wait before hearing out another's…. [read more]

Dream Content as Therapy: Ego vs. Repression Dissertation

… For example: a parent has repeating nightmares, and the child "dreams his dreams " because the child is in a psychic resonance with the parent. The child's dreams end when the parent's does. Four, it might be a repetition of a past traumatic event in current lifetime. For example: a person might dream of a recent rape, a childhood assault or a wartime battle. This type of nightmare is so deeply etched in the psyche that it can require heavy use of behavioral dream-work techniques to modify the content and emotional intensity.

A fifth factor could be that the dream is a depiction of a past or probable life. For example: a client might dream the last events prior to a violent…. [read more]

Management Problems in the Electronics Industry Term Paper

… ¶ … goal is not a strategy. Strategy involves coherent and consistent decisions, coordinated resource allocations, and theories of action (outcome and response) that may help indirectly achieve a goal unattainable by direct frontal attack…" (Teece, 2010, p. 298).

Successful Management Theories for the Electronics Industry

The cultural / ethnic diversity in today's workplace -- in the electronics field coupled with the current economic downtown creates both problems and opportunities for management. The problems of course have to do with the sagging consumer spending and layoffs of employees; but the opportunities for electronics companies are there too, in terms of the need for a better management theory to be put in place. This paper outlines a number of those theories including some that are identified…. [read more]

Frost's Poetry and Landscape Term Paper

… After the ceremony, Frost proposed to Elinor. Because they were going to distant colleges, Elinor wanted the engagement to be kept a secret. Frost wanted to be married right away, but she argued that there would be plenty of time for marriage when circumstances were different (Parini 31).

College life did not agree with RF, and after a year, he returned home to a series of odd jobs while he waited for his beloved Elinor. During this time his live of reading poems turned to writing them. When work was slow he wrote poetry. It was then that he started "My Butterfly," a poem he had thought up when he found butterfly wings among leaves while he was at Dartmouth College. Frost later called this…. [read more]

Fiction Analysis of Flight Patterns Term Paper

… ¶ … Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner and "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar

Allen Poe: Can We Trust the Foreshadowing of the Southern Gothic?

One issue stands out about both "A Rose for Emily" and the Cask of Amontillado: a betrayal of trust. Indeed, the only things that can be trusted are the foreshadowing, flashback and the loneliness that accompany us all into a trip into the Southern gothic (the macabre south of the Mason-Dixon line). Even these aspects of the stories are shrouded in mystery and take time to come out. Emily hides Homer Barron's body and does not give him a burial, just as it was foreshadowed in the handling of her father's death. In death, as in life, her feelings…. [read more]

John Grierson the Documentary Film Developed Term Paper

… John Grierson

The documentary film developed alongside the narrative film, though largely during the sound era. It was shaped most profoundly during the 1930s as filmmakers began to record sociological an anthropological studies of different populations. Some of the early films were treated much as narrative films were and were widely released in theaters, achieving some popularity. In the early 1930s, this included such films as Nanook of the North and Moana, both by Robert Flaherty. These films were different not only because they presented real people in real situations but because they were filmed on real locations and not in studios. The silent film had sometimes gone outside the confines of the studio, but the advent of sound tied the camera to the soundstage…. [read more]

Discrimination and Affirmative Action Essay

… Women are often viewed as the weaker sex in intelligence, physical ability and emotion. This bias against them is often used in the workforce and sometimes used by women against women in competing for a higher position or promotion within the same organization.

Gender discrimination in the workplace has been a significant issue that has been well observed by the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and in Title VII, Civil Rights Act of 1964. Patterns of gender discrimination, especially as related to upward mobility for women, have remained in the workforce since the mid-1980s despite social, demographic, and legal changes. Sex categorization can bias workplace relations and conserve inequality by forcing gender-labelling of jobs, contributing to employers' discriminatory preferences, and mediating willingness to settle for….

Uncontrollable Urge: The Effect Essay

… It is when the narrator is under the influence of alcohol that he attacks his most beloved pet, a black cat named Pluto. Unlike the narrators in "The Imp of the Perverse" and "The Tell-Tale Heart," the narrator in "The Black Cat," is not horrified by Pluto, but rather the doppelganger that suddenly appears after Pluto's brutal hanging. The narrator admits that hanging Pluto was done in the "spirit of PERVERSENESS," a spirit that will overcome him again in the narrative (225). Pluto's doppelganger bears a striking resemblance to Pluto; the doppelganger is missing one eye and even bears a mark that resembles a noose, which the narrator employed to murder his beloved pet (227). Because the new cat is a constant reminder of the…. [read more]

Oxford Book of Caribbean Short Stories Essay

… ¶ … Oxford Book of Caribbean Short Stories

The three stories to be reviewed, compared and analyzed in this paper are: "Encarnacion Mendoza's Christmas Eve" (by Juan Bosch); "The Light on the Sea" (by John Wickham); and "The Last Voyage of the Ghost Ship" (by Gabriel Garcia Marquez).

Similarities and Differences between the Ghost Ship and Mendoza

All three stories are quite different, with characters that seem to have very little in common. But two stories, Encarnacion Mendoza's story (which I will refer to in this paper as "Mendoza") and the Last Voyage of the Ghost Ship (which I will refer to as "Ghost Ship") have the strong theme of death in common. The two characters, Mendoza and the narrator from Ghost Ship are very…. [read more]

Classical Hollywood Style Term Paper

… Alfred Hitchcock is known as a true genius of the film, especially in the special techniques he uses to draw the viewers into the characters' thoughts and actions. One of these well-known methods is called the subjective approach, where the audience actually sees into the mind of the people involved. This use of subjective storytelling, where the camera shows the viewpoint of a character along with selective revelations so viewers know important things the protagonist has not yet realized, serves to significantly increase the suspense. Three movies, "Rear View Window," "Notorious," and "Vertigo" exemplify this technique. As noted by director Peter Bogdonovich "Subjective treatment, putting the audience in the mind of the character, is, to me, the purest form of the cinema.

Hitchcock distinguished between…. [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]
