A Shot in the Light

...A SHOT IN THE LIGHT The story is about a “Good Samaritan”, who picks up an unlucky motorist named Ray. The “Good Samaritan” is the narrator. He seems like a nice and honest man throughout the whole story. In the middle of the story, Ray the unlucky motorist, shoots the narrator four times. The narrator doesn’t even get mad. Maybe it’s because of his wounds, but still. The reader can rely on the narrator, but Ray can’t. He expects the guy to die and then the narrator just don’t?! That’s the most unreliable you can be! Just a joke. The story is set in the past, at least it’s told like it’s something that has happened in the past. The story ends with these lines: I kept my promise. I like to think Ray kept his. Again, this shows the narrators reliability, and his good nature. The last couple of lines are told in present time. Like the narrator is telling you the story right now. Over a cup of coffee, maybe? Or tea, if you don’t like coffee. The narrator could drink both, because he is a good person. He has his own small jewelry business; he is friendly, calm and unsuspecting. After Ray shoots him, he feels no need to take revenge and no anger. Ray on the other hand, is the complete opposite of the narrator. Of course it’s a big minus, walking around shooting people, but his behavior has its reasons. Ray comes from a background of drugs and crime and a violent father. Ray’s plan has always been to shoot the narrator, from the moment the narrator picked him up. But the narrator......

Of Passion and Calling

...investment of effort to pass each subject, let alone study whilst juggling all the other responsibilities that one has in life.   Pursuing graduate school takes all these things but if looked upon closely, these things are inevitable. These are factors that would exist for anyone who would like to pursue higher education. So why am I seeking admission to graduate school? Just two things: my passion and a calling. Passion – it is the inert force in any human being that drives them to pursue their dreams and goals. Passion is a very strong feeling towards something, which, in my case, would be children. From high school to college years, I have seen myself to be very passionate about children. Children of the youngest ages, may they be a fast learner or slow learner; may they obedient or stubborn. I have found myself volunteering to take care of other people’s children or playing with them while others scour at this task. This passion that I have for children is my main reason on why I am applying for a major in Teaching for Early Grades.   The second one, a calling, is actually a realization that I have recently found. From college to now, my best skill at work would be to educate others, no matter what profile my audience is. With these two things in mind, I mustered up enough courage that I have to look for a degree in higher education. That is why I am writing about why I am pursuing admission for graduate study. Of course, nothing will ever beat my own Alma......

He shows Ray the right way out of the criminality. He can see the good things in all people, and he didn’t die of the bullets. d. Do you think Ray will keep his promise? Why/why not? - Yes because the narrator makes an impression on Ray that might keep him from harming others. 2) Theme/ message: Discuss which theme(s) you think is/ are the strongest in the short story and whether there is a clear message about the theme. e.

Shot-by-Shot Analysis of a Film

...Shot-by-shot Analysis Life of Pi, a 2012 American 3D adventure drama film that composed of live -action and computer-animated adventure based on Yann Martel's novel. This film is directed by Ang Lee, a movie that tells a story within another story based on one simple truth. In the movie, the narrator pi, who was the only survived young man from the sinking Japanese ship caused by the storm. He made to the lifeboat, yet, he was alone in the center of pacific ocean without any supplies but with a tiger called Richard Parker. However, the theme of this film is not just this exciting adventure but is the implicit conflict between Pi and the tiger; Pi’s rationality of believing in God to the animality aspect of his personality, the animalistic side of human nature that he struggled with. Every scenes have highlighted this meaning of how they survived as a whole. However, I found the sequence of when the main character Pi has his emotional changes from fear tiger to kill tiger to the end of living with the tiger is interesting and it reveals the overall meaning of the theme of the film as well. In this particular sequence, the camera has used long shots repeatedly and frequently to align the audience with the filmed characters and with their feelings. The long shot in the looser framing and the wider angle of vision create sense of negativity between Pi the powerful and isolating environment of the ocean. In a image of this sequence, long shot of Pi catching fishes with his tools......

Calling Home

...“Calling Home” by Jean Brandt Assignment This story takes place around Christmas time when Jean was a thirteen year old girl. On this particular day, Jean was filled with happy, joyous emotions. She loved Christmas time and her grandmother was in town visiting for the holidays. Jean, her grandmother, her brother Louis, and her sister Susan were out at the mall for some last minute Christmas shopping. They sang carols, chattered, and laughed the whole way there. They were really in the holiday spirit. While at the mall, Jean came across a popular Snoopy button for 75-cents but knew she was supposed to be shopping for presents for other people so she couldn't decide whether or not she would still get the button. She asked her sister and her sister gave her the OK. Once Jean got a glance of the cashier lines, she began to rethink whether or not she wanted to wait in such a long line for something that only cost 75-cents. She ended up deciding she did not want to wait so she walked back to the basket where she got the pin from and instead of dropping it back in the basket, she slipped the button in her pocket. The first few moments she was very hesitant because her conscience had set in and she had never stolen before. She began to head towards the entrance and her heart began to race uncontrollably. The faster her heart raced, the faster she walked which shows how fearful she was. However, once she made it out the store, she felt relieved and actually referred......

Long Shot

... The service condition, instead, requires that the eligible employees have to be still employed by Long Shot after the three-year reporting period. These conditions have both to be met to vest the options. Based on ASC 718-10-30-27 Long Shot should use the $9 grant-date fair value to measure its compensation cost. The codification determines that performance and service conditions are not reflected in the estimate of the fair value of an award at the grant date because those conditions are restrictions that stem from the forfeitability of instruments to which employees have not yet earned the right. Since the $6 grant-date fair value has the revenue target factored into the fair value assessment it should not be used. Plus to strengthen the previous stated paragraph, ASC 718-10-55-64 says “Performance or service conditions that only affect vesting are excluded from the estimate of grant-date fair value”. As mentioned above current conditions affect exclusively vesting and thus are not to be factored into the fair value at the grant date. Compensation cost is generally recognized from the grant date through the vesting date. ASC 718-10-30 requires an estimate of the requisite service period based on an analysis of all vesting conditions, explicit, implicit, and derived service periods, and the probability that performance or service conditions will be satisfied. Long Shot should recognize compensation cost associated with the stock options over three years, because......

The Shot

...Ten seconds left. I can barely hear anything. I feel the vomit creeping up in my throat as the milliseconds go by. Everything is getting very blurry. Tension is rising. Who would have thought that we would be down by one point and I would be the one trusted to hold this basketball? Why did my coach want me to shoot the last shot in the first place? What do I bring on this court that is any different from what my teammates would bring? Every face on my bench is almost frozen, their eyes locked on to me and the ball. There are hundreds of people in the stands watching my every move. Deep breath. Every little thing has to be on point. Nine seconds. I just want to pass the ball away over to my teammate, get rid of it. Why not? Who cares what my coach says? He’s the one who put me in this situation anyways. Eight seconds left. Its just too embarrassing to miss THE final shot in THE final game of the season. I have earned every second I stepped foot on this court and worked too hard for this shot to be a miss. All the time spent practicing and all the injuries, I just cant let myself and everyone down. Seven seconds. I see everyone in the stands jumping up and down but can barely hear them. What do they want from me? i’m 18 years old for crying out loud! It’s not like I’m in the NBA here! I want to see them try and step foot in my shoes right now... Nonsense, focus. My defender looks really intimidating. His muscles contract as his thumbs rub against his fingertips. Boy does he......

Immunizations: Who Should Be Calling the Shots?

...Immunizations: Who Should be Calling the Shots? Immunizations: Who Should be Calling the Shots? Vaccines can prevent outbreaks of disease and save lives. By immunizing a critical portion of a community, most of us are protected from the disease because there is little chance for an outbreak. By reducing the number of people who are not immune, we can contain the spread of contagious disease. This is known as “community immunity” or “herd immunity” ("Vaccines.gov", n.d.). Diseases such as measles and pertussis were once highly feared and vaccines for these diseases have played an important part in reducing the transmissions of these and other deadly diseases. (Luthy, DNP,FNP, Beckstrand, RN, PhD, CCRN, CNE, Callister, RN, PhD, FAAN, & Cahoon, SN, 2012). While many people fear that immunizations can have harmful side effects such as developmental delays in children or that the government and pharmaceutical companies are profiting from the sale of immunizations, parents who choose to not immunize their children are putting the general public at risk. We must act now to encourage parents to vaccinate in order to prevent widespread outbreaks of once deadly diseases. Personal Beliefs There are currently 20 states that allow vaccine exemption based on parents’ personal beliefs, and this is becoming increasingly prevalent. Parents’ personal decisions to exempt their children from receiving vaccinations often stems from a false sense of security that if......

My Calling

...My Calling Imagine a pro baseball game. The fans are cheering, the players are focused, and the kids are excited to be at a the game. Ushers walk the aisles selling peanuts and popcorn as the smell of food drifts through the seats. People all over the world play this magnificent sport. Baseball is the best sport of all time because you get to work on a team and you do not need to be a pro to play it. The sport of baseball has an informative history. Alexander Cartwright invented baseball in 1845. The only thing you have to do to play baseball is know the rules. The history of baseball is not only interesting to know but also helps people understand the game. Playing the game is one thing, But knowing it is another. Knowing the game is all I ever wanted to do. Now that i understand it I know I can do better than I already am. In this sport being a team player is essential. The cool part of baseball are the drills. It is fun because you all work together. Most people think its all about winning, but to me its all about having fun. This game would not work without players working together as a team. I am not the best player out there but if i can work hard enough I know I can at least be noticed and that’s all I want. Muhammad Ali said “I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'” Ever since that quote all I think about is Baseball. This quote really inspired me because Muhammad Ali is one......

The Shot

...The shot One hour later Martin left the house through the backdoor. It was nearly dark now. He crept along the walls. Suddenly a bucket hit his foot that someone had left. The bucket made a terrible noise. “God dammit!” Martin said and began to run. He ran as fast as he could, towards the garage. Just when he reached it, he heard a shot. In the same moment he jumps into the garage, a bullet hit him and he felt a terrible pain in his left leg. He thought “ Dr. Olney ” as he fell on the ground beside the Land Rover. With great difficulty, Martin throw the macbook and the speaker that he had robbed from Dr. Olney, then crawled into the car himself so he won’t get busted and end up behind bars. He drove as fast as he could away from the house. He had an ugly pain in his left leg, he was crying a bit, but he did not have time to cry, the only thing that was on his mind at that time was that he didn’t want to go to prison so he kept on driving but what he didn’t noticed before was that his leg was bleeding like hell! He couldn’t really feel his leg anymore, and that meant that he could only drive with one leg, which is impossible. Dr. Olney yelled “Come back! And ran straight to his own car. He put the key in, and gassed up the car, drove right into the neighbours trashcan and yelled, “I’ll clean that up tomorrow!” Dr. Olney drove so fast that his hat nearly flew off and out of the window. Martin stopped the car and he looked back to see if Dr. Olney was there, but he couldn’t...

Business Is a Calling

...For the “Business as a Calling” event, I got the opportunity to hear from a very successful and established business professional. Peter McGrath, a fellow University of Dayton graduate, shared his past encounters and experiences in relation to his business career. Mr. McGrath has been in business for over forty years, thirty seven of which were with JC Penney. At JC Penney, he worked his way up into becoming the Executive Vice President of product development and sourcing. In 2010, McGrath started his own business entitled “McGrath International LLC” where he served as a consultant. In addition, he talked about how, as an employee for JC Penney, he strived to influence his employees and customers in the same way as the founder, James Cash Penney did. During the speech, McGrath repeatedly referenced James Cash Penney as a strong influence in his life and part of the reason he has gotten so far in his career. Additionally, he talked about how they were always trying to improve their company and were never satisfied. Besides giving a very inspiring speech, McGrath also presented several pillars that left an impression on me. These pillars demonstrated the importance of obtaining a deeper sense of purpose and social awareness. The first was to “love what you do”. Although this may seem very simple, several people are unhappy in their careers. In addition, in general, people only look at the short term value of their jobs instead of focusing on the bigger picture. As Mr.......

Shot Tracker

...Manish Adhikari Akshat Kumar Hans Li Pd. 3 – Kosek Title Basketball Shot Tracker Research Proposal Abstract We intend to make a device that tracks a player’s basketball shot. It will detect where the the shot was taken, whether the shot was made or missed, and display the information to a website. We will do this by using a wrist sensor that will track when a shot is taken and a sensor on the hoop that will detect when a shot is made. The data will be sent to a program that will process and display the information on a website. This program is intended to help basketball players improve their shooting. Problem/Purpose/Engineering Goals We are trying to create a technology. The purpose for doing this is that when people are practicing basketball, unless they want to create a new diagram every single time on paper and track where they shot from and whether or not they made the shot, they don’t receive feedback on their shooting percentage or anything like that. There is a mental part to playing basketball, and if someone knows that he is consistently improving his shot every day, then he will be more confident while playing and an overall better player. Our project hopes to make the shot tracking process easier and less time consuming. Background There’s always room to improve in basketball so our objective is to create a tool that will help optimize the rate of development of one’s shooting skill. While this technology already currently exists, we are......

Go-Camera Shot

At that time, the camera was close to her face and body to show her blood and then it raised vertically and changed from close-up to wide shot.

Close-up In the film, it uses a lot of Close-up to show details, including actor’s faces, Todd’s credit card, wound of strip club patron, and so on. Close-up can easily bring actor’s feeling to audiences by showing details on their face, from their expressions audiences can know their emotions. Also many details need to be showed to audiences so they can know what is going on, such as the close-up of Simon gives credit card to front desk and the name on the card is Todd. Dolly shots Also the film uses lots of dolly shots. Such as Simon and his friends drive on the road, and Ronna walks into the supermarket, the camera is setting in front of them and moving at the same speed as them to show their movement so the story can keep going.

Jello Shots

...I have jello shots in my pockets. It's not comfortable, in fact it's wet and sticky. I don't like it. However, I still have them there and have made no effort to clean up myself. This is because, as I write this, I am drunk and have been my entire life. I have a rare condition that constantly ferments my food and drinks and produces alcohol inside my own body. This is an actual condition where a human is born with an abnormal amount of yeasts inside their intestines. When I eat my food is processed normally and enters my colon where it becomes fecal matter. This is where it gets interesting folks. The crap stays inside my intestines in preparation for exit from my you-know-where but as it stays inside the intestines, the yeast begins to consume any nutrients left, much like dogs eat their own steaming piles after taking a good one, and they create gases that are actually alcohol. The alcohol enters my bloodstream and provides me with a constant drunk feeling. Let me tell you folks, it sucks. I constantly take whizzes on cop cars, fall down laughing, and throw up on my best friend, whoever that may be that day. I have gone to doctors looking for a cure, but even the best ones just say to have a cup of coffee and try to balance the alcohol with caffeine. One actually hypothesized that the removal of my intestines would solve the problem. However, he also proposed the implanting of a snake carcass as snakes have roughly the same length and consistency of a human intestine.......

Gods Calling

...Ashley Garrett Mr. Havey Sex and Marriage Block 3G April 21, 2016 Gods Calling Where do I believe God is calling me? Wow, that’s a tough one. I think that God is calling me to so many things that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where He is leading me. While I am still uncertain about what God wants for my life job wise, I am absolutely positive that he wants me to be a mother. I have known since I was a little girl that growing up and being a mom seemed like the best job in the entire world. It still seems like the best job in the entire world. While I know that being a mother is a ton of work, I feel as if that it is fun work being with a human life you created. That is another part of being a mother that I think is amazing, you have created a living breathing human being inside of you for 9 months. Not just that, but this baby you have created his part of you. You have this baby that you have given part of your genetics too. I remember being a little girl carrying around a baby doll, thinking I wish this were a real baby. I love the thought of being a nurturer to a baby. When I picture my life down the road I know that I will have a family. I see about 5 little ones running around the house causing a ruckus. I think the fact that I live with my grandparents has made me want to be a better mother then the one I did not have. I also think the fact that I did not having siblings growing up makes me want my children to have......
