Lean on Me Case Study

...Case Study 3 Lean on Me Lean on Me was a powerful movie directed by John Avildsen that came to the theatres in 1989. The movie is about a principal in 1987 that returns to Eastside High School that’s filled with violence, gangs, and drugs. This principal, Joe Clark, vowed to himself and everyone in the community and legislature that he would turn the school around. Joe Clark’s character was played by Oscar winner, Morgan Freeman. The state legislature has mandated that 75% of all high school students must pass the state aptitude exam or the school will be shut down. Joe Clark (aka Morgan Freeman) used his unconventional approaches to turn this school around. He transformed the look of the school by ordering the graffiti covered and painted over. He expelled all of the drug users/sellers and any trouble makers from the school. At this point, he started track the halls of the schools, making sure every student was in class where they belonged. He held each teacher personally accountable for their students learning what was necessary to pass the state aptitude exam. This state aptitude exam is an organizational way that the state would survey the students’ learning. This is why Joe Clark held the teachers responsible for the students’ learning. Apparently, prior to Joe Clark going to Eastside High School, the leadership didn’t lead the students into fighting for their education. Joe Clark did that. Joe Clark fought for every student that he had that took the initiative......

By contracting the customer directly with the matter cause a ripple effect in the customer base. The company has hurt an excessive financial hardship.

...contributions to humankind. When I decide to pursue my major-electrical engineering, I also aim at figuring out an efficient way to reduce the gas emission. I think about how to make use of the solar energy in the production of solar panel on rooftop, electricity-generating devices. Truthfully, the solar energy is very important to the world. The fossil fuels cannot remain sufficient; therefore, oil and gas supplies will go down and cannot bring enough for demand. The solar energy will be the best option for a long term. Solar panel on the rooftop will focus the sun’s rays to heat fluids that produce power so that it can help engines act. Solar energy makes the productivity higher. However, the use of solar energy in production is still low due to the manufacturing high cost. In the future, if all people tend to use more solar energy, the manufacturing cost will decrease so that it can fit to the majority. Furthermore, the storing of solar energy is also considered deeply. If people constantly use an energy source without storing for later use, that source will become disappear. Those are the things I am going to do in the future to make people have a better life....

As part of KDND’s “Hold your wee for a Wii” contest, Jennifer drank bottle after bottle of water for hours without urinating. Initially, Jennifer seemed to be having fun, joking lightheartedly with the radio hosts and obligingly downing an 8-ounce bottle of water every 15 minutes. As the hours passed, however, she developed a splitting headache and dizziness. Finally, she couldn’t take it anymore and ran to the bathroom and vomited.

Catch Me If You Can

...Catch Me if You Can: An Entertaining Roller Coaster Ride Imagine having the ability to become an airline co-pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer all before turning the age of twenty-one. Well believe it or not; this became a reality for Frank Abagnale Jr. as he infiltrated the system in the 1960’s. The Steven Spielberg directed movie “Catch Me if You Can” brings out this true story, in which a sixteen year old runaway Frank Abagnale Jr. (played by Leonardo Dicaprio) began his “brilliant three year run as a master of deception” (Hollywood.com). In this three year stint, he also forges over a million dollars of fake checks across the country, creates several aliases for himself, and manages to become the youngest person on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Carl Hanratty, an FBI Bank Fraud Agent (played by Tom Hanks) engages with Abagnale Jr. in what Starpulse.com calls a “a highly enjoyable cat-and–mouse escapade.” After Frank Abagnale Jr. was eventually caught, Carl Hanratty realized that Abagnale’s check-savviness could be a benefit to his department in the FBI. He later went on to have a successful career as an FBI Agent in Check Fraud, instead of facing a timely prison sentence. The movie flows well due to a plethora of acting skills, well-written dialogue, and an entertaining back and forth battle that Abagnale Jr. encounters with Hanratty and also within himself. “Catch Me’s acting shines,” Hollywood.com raves. The movie contains a respectable and veteran class of Hollywood......

Frank Sr. believes his son’s lies until Detective Hanratty visits him one day asking the whereabouts of Frank Jr. Frank Sr. lies to the detective and claims to know nothing of Frank’s current location, protecting his son despite being hurt by the truth. At one point Frank Jr. comes back home to his father to convince him yet again that the family can be put back together. Frank Sr. tells his son that this can never happen as well as his son “stopping all this nonsense”. Frank Jr. begs his father to tell him to stop but the only words his father has are “you can’t”. Frank is eventually tracked down in France and extradited to the U.S. under the assumption he will work for the FBI under Hanratty’s supervision. Frank agrees and becomes one of the leading investigators for the FBI fraud division using his extensive knowledge to decipher new ways to stop criminals just like him.
