The Help

...to flex a muscle of moral superiority. It’s no surprise, really, that The Help, the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s 2009 novel that opened big out of the starting gate, has, in some quarters, been socked with that kind of criticism. On paper, at least, The Help sounds exactly like the kind of well-meaning but backward, “progressive” yet pious movie that Hollywood, by now, should perhaps have outgrown. It’s set in the early civil rights era, a time whose turbulence long ago hardened into safe, non-controversial mythology. It centers on the daily hardships of two black maids, somber Aibileen (Viola Davis) and feisty Minny (Octavia Spencer), in Jackson, Miss. — but the majority of the film’s characters are white (as is the film’s writer-director, Tate Taylor, and Stockett herself). The movie’s central narrative mechanism, whereby a well-meaning college graduate named Skeeter (Emma Stone) interviews the maids of Jackson for an anonymous tell-all book about their experiences, seems to conform to the conventional, patronizing arc of a white heroine lending a noble hand of assistance to black characters who couldn’t, without her help, have done it on their own. (She can also be viewed as vaulting herself to success on their backs.) Beneath all of these factors, there’s a basic, staring-you-in-the-face element that I think has been responsible for a certain moralistic ire that has greeted The Help. And that is this: Why, in 2011, at a moment when we have our first......

The Help

...The Help The Help is a movie that depicts the discrimination and prejudices against African-Americans in the late 1960’s. The main character begins to write a book from the viewpoint of the black maids who work, in harsh and unjust terms, for wealthy, upper class white couples. During the events of the film, we see that the maids are responsible for the entire upbringing of the white couple’s child(ren), and works under conditions that border on slavery. Now that we have a little background on the film, we will discuss the promotional poster. The teaser poster for the film is set against a warm, golden background. The title of the film, along with a quote, appears in a soft purple, simple text. There is no shadow or shading of any sort on the text, and helps create a simple cover for views that catches attention subtly, but doesn’t scream for notice-much like the pace of the film. The quote, “Change begins with a whisper,” is written in the same font as the title, and ties into the scene depicted below the text. That scene is of four women-two black maids standing to the left, and two white, upper class women sitting on a bench to the right. The two maids are dressed in bland maid outfits of a pale blue shade. Their shoes are old and worn and appear to be covered in dust. The look of their outfits implies poverty and low social class. One of the maids seems to be whispering into the ear of the other, tying in with the quote at the top. The other maid has her head......

...help BBB University of Universities Help Introduction Often you would come across organizations that stress the importance of good communication management. It's empirical for an organization to have a proper communication management. Once this is achieved, the organization is one step closer to achieving its overall business objectives. Communication management refers to a systematic plan, which implements and monitors the channels and content of communication.

The five W's in communication management are only the guidelines. Therefore, you do need to take other considerations into......

And together they have an extraordinary story to tell… The Help switches between three main perspectives for its duration Aibileen, Minny and Miss Skeeter. Aibileen is a black maid who specializes in taking care of children, her current commitment is Mae Mobley, a child desperate for her mothers approval receiving only agitated looks and scolding in return. Because of this and the recent death of Aibileen’s son, she becomes more attached to the child than normal but can’t help feeling dread in her gut, knowing that one day Mae Mobley will grow up and fall prey to prejudices. Can she convince her that black is just a colour? Meanwhile Minny, another black maid with some serious attitude and a love of answering back gets fired from her job for ‘stealing.’ As a last resort she finds herself employed by a strange woman who spends every day sitting inside on her bed. Will Minny ever understand the mystery behind her strange behaviour? In contrast a white woman named Skeeter struggles and fails to live up to her mothers expectations of the perfect southern woman. She is haunted by the mystery of her disappearing childhood maid and cannot get rid of the nagging feeling that the help are mistreated. She comes up with the idea of writing a book on the help, but will she be able to convince any of them to talk to her? This is such a beautiful book and I think the main source of this is the......

...good for business. Law was created to help right wrongs and give people justice, but this may not be true in this day and age. Criminal law, rehabilitation for juveniles and punishment and reparation for adults is the main goal. Civil law is slightly different in that it is giving the plaintiff justice without giving jail time, but instead the defendant or plaintiff will pay a monetary amount to the winner of the case for damages or any losses is the goal. Much has changed from the past until now. When we talk about attorney they were first around to help others against laws and because most people did not know about laws. Regarding law Attorneys now this has changed a lot and most attorneys only care about money. Attorneys still allow for people to enjoy freedoms and to be free of day to day struggles, but not all are this fortunate. There are some attorneys offer their services to people they know they can win quick and with a settlement to make the quickest money. Not all attorneys are bad and not all laws are meant to help businesses and for those attorney with dignity, integrity and honor for their profession, can be a monumental. With lawyers of this caliber they will keep business on the straight path, a good path and will benefit greatly from the laws meant to protect business without harming society or the community around them.

...goods which was unheard of in the case of smaller suppliers. Last year sales from all Froppa stores were ~Rs 30Cr. There was significant variation of revenue by store but they were all profitable at store level. Cost of goods was ~Rs 20.5 Cr, and then there were other expenses like space cost, staff, inventory, marketing of ~Rs 7Cr. Froppa was selling cheap products so they never had return policy, guarantee etc. However, they did spend on marketing- it is never difficult to locate a Froppa store as there will be billboards all around the location. Printed ads and pamphlets were also a significant expense for Froppa. Story of Amit: Amit was the younger son of Mr. Bansal. While his elder brother always wanted to join Froppa and help his father, Amit was always fascinated by computers.

...they were charged with feeding, rearing and caring for their children. Theirs is an American story that is rarely told on any grand, meaningful scale—not one, at least, that defies stereotype and caricature. But recently, “The Help,” a film based on Kathryn Stockett’s bestselling book of the same name, became a cultural touchstone when two of its lead characters, both African-American maids in the then-staunchly segregated Mississippi, challenged viewers to walk their journey—to see, as lead protagonist, Abileen Clark, said, “what it felt like to be me.” To me, ‘The Help’ is this year’s most outstanding and socially relevant motion picture; Viola Davis’ quiet but powerful portrayal of Abileen made us all take notice of a historically invisible class of women and Abileen’s story, along with those of the other maids who rallied with her to tell it, remind us that when we speak, if only in a whisper, momentous things can happen. Of course, the movie, does not come without its controversy: while so many, myself included, questioned then embraced Stockett’s story and actresses Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer earned Academy Award nominations for their roles as the maids who conspired with a young white woman to canonize their life stories, others question why, 70 years after Hattie McDaniel won an Oscar for her portrayal as the affable, sassy slave maid Mammy in Gone With the Wind, Hollywood ushered to the screen a movie feting the Jim Crow subjugation of black women.

...Starting and managing a business takes motivation, determination, and aspiration. Possessing the desire and talent for such a task, and the business itself is extremely important when aiming for a successful outcome. Extensive research and planning will be a vital factor to consider in the decision of going to business for ones self. Other important components to take into context are the different forms of business organizations, the financial statements associated with those organizations, tax, legal and accounting implications, and both the advantages and disadvantages for each form of organization. Exhibiting skills, discipline and hard work can be of value when entering the realm of entrepreneurship. The first step in starting a business, is determining the form of business organization the business will be. There are three types of organizations to chose from which are sole proprietorship, partnership, and corporation which is subdivided into C corporation and S corporation. The sole proprietorship is a business that is started and owned by one person. Partnership involves at least two or more persons involved as partners when the business is started. A corporation is a business organized as a separate legal entity by it’s stockholders (). A C corporation is a business that is taxed separately from its owners, whereas an S corporation is not. Each form of business possesses many advantages and disadvantages. One advantage of a sole proprietorship business is the......

Inventory was completely ruined, and the company’s computer system, including all accounting records, was destroyed. Before the unfortunate incident, recovery specialists cleaned the buildings. The company controller is very nervous and anxious to recover whatever records he can to support the insurance claim for the destroyed inventory. After consulting with the cost accountant, they decide to retrieve the previous year’s annual report for the beginning inventory numbers. In addition, they also agreed that they need first quarter cost data. The cost accountant was working on the first quarter results before the storm hit, and to his surprise, the report was still in his desk drawer. After reviewing the data , the information shows the following information: Material purchases were $ 325,000; Direct Labor was $ 220,000. Further discussions between the controller and the cost accountant revealed that sales were $ 1,350,000 and the gross margin was 30% of sales. The cost accountant also discovered, while sifting through the information, that cost of goods available for sale was $ 1,020,000 at cost.
