Film expresses thought and conversation between images concepts and the viewer. The product is an experience that offers “cavellian mediations” in capturing the ways films think. This “thought” pertains to the mechanism by which film elicits and expresses thought, both within its own means of expression and through the potential of self-reflection amongst the viewers.

The film provides voice, animating the effort to find words to describe the experience to film. Essentially, the film invites us to express, experience, and think.

In reflection upon the conversation, I must recognize it’s existence as a moment that is situated within a series of instances.

Reconcile the fact that genre exists both at once “full-blown” and emerges spontaneously within conversation

Genre requires a level of engagement between reader and the text. While “genre exists as a form characterized by features, as an object by its properties; accordingly to emerge to the question is that later members can ‘add’ something to the genre because there is no such thing as ‘all its features’” (315).

Cavell establishes two forms of genre: one consisting of genre as a medium and the other consisting of genre as a cycle. The role that criticism plays within these two cases of genre differs. In genre as a cycle, the criticism falls predominantly on the genre rather than the individual object.

“Genre as a form characterized by features, as an object by its properties; accordingly to emerge full-blow must mean to emerge possessing all its features” 1) “First, nothing would count as a feature until an act of criticism defines it as such (otherwise it would always have been obvious that, for instance, the subject of remarriage was a feature, indeed a leading feature of a genre) 2) “Second, if a member of a genre were just an object with features the if it shared all its…...

Social Skills

...the relationship between social competence and online video game involvement amongst adult video game players. To determine the extent to which online video game involvement may support, or undermine, the development and maintenance of social competence, the linear relationships between social skills and online video game involvement will be evaluated. While social competence can, and has been, conceptualized in a multitude of ways, the current work employed the social skills approach to measuring social competence. This approach operationalizes social competence as either having, or not having, certain social skills (Rose-Kransor, 1997). The social skills approach was chosen because it forms the base of most social competence models (Cavell, 1990; DuBois & Felner, 1996; Rose-Kransor, 1997), supplying the foundation for the other facets of social competence to build upon. This approach is also the most frequently employed within the social competence literature (Rose-Kransor, 1997), and has shown significant relationships with performance based assessments (Baron & Markman, 2003; Riggio, Watring, & Throckmorton, 1993), suggesting that it is a valid methodology to assess social skill and social performance. Thus, any significant associations between social competence and online video game involvement should be quantifiable on this foundational level. Furthermore, the social skills approach is most adept for pinpointing the precise social abilities that may hold a relationship......

Women Roles in Ww1

...I did it more or less in the dark… air raids were over us nearly all night and sometimes we had to blow out the candles for a few minutes and stop when one heard the Boche right over… Elisabeth Coutauld’s story describes the true reliance the militias has on the female medical workers. It can be made clear that the female nurses and doctor’s determination and bravery is key to the support of the army. On the warfront women do not only work as medicinal workers, but also as espionage members. Spies are used for “gathering and passing along information.” Both the Allies and the Central Powers utilize women for the purpose of gaining vital information about their enemy. An example of female Allie spies is Louise de Bettugnies and Edith Cavell. Louise and Edith assists “Allied soldiers escape capture” from the troops that occupy France, and other high tension areas, at the time. But the use of females as espionage goes much deeper than simply helping soldiers escape capture. In the case of another Allie spy Marthe Richer, her mission is to get close to German officials. Marthe “worked as a double-agent… and passed along secrets obtained from her laision with a German Officer.” The vital role of female espionage is extremely valuable to a given alliance as it allows them to prepare for what was to come and also help in saving captive soldiers. Though espionage is not an overly common role for women to do, it is important in terms of how women participate in various aspects of......

The Impact of School-Based Mentoring on Youths with Different Relational Profiles

...school hours, has been the fastest growing approach, accounting for nearly half of all youth-mentoring programs (DuBois & Karcher, 2005). In SBM programs, mentors and mentees engage in activities together, including talking, playing games, and academic-related tasks such as homework or reading. SBM’s strong appeal stems from its ability to serve youths who may not be reached by other forms of mentoring and its potential to connect a broad array of community members with youths’ daily academic and social experiences in the school setting, potentially improving youths’ experience in and outlook on school. Participation in SBM has been associated with positive outcomes, including improvements in academic, behavioral, and psychosocial adjustment (Cavell & Hughes, 2000; Karcher, 2008; Karcher, Davis, & Powell, 2002; Matzenbacher, 1999; Portwood & Ayers, 2005). Although promising, these findings are mostly based on non- or quasi-experimental evidence. Findings from two recent random assignment impact evaluations of SBM showed few statistically significant impacts on academic, psychosocial, or behavioral outcomes (Bernstein, Rappaport, Olsho, Hunt, & Levin, 2009; Herrera, Grossman, Kauh, Feldman, & McMaken, 2007). Secondary analyses of these data, however, have hinted at variability in effects among different subgroups of youths (Bernstein et al., 2009; Herrera et al., 2007; Herrera, Grossman, Kauh, & McMaken, in press). Such findings underscore the importance of identifying factors......

Peer Pressure

...academic year 1993-94.g behavior problems and teacher rated internalizing behavior problems. Community Interaction Wighting (2006), few studies have directly explored this type of relationship. Furthermore a review of the literature revealed no published studies that utilized standardized measures to compare sense of community and academic achievement among high school students. Teacher-students Interaction In support, Hughes and colleagues (2006) found that positive teacher- student relationships predicted later peer acceptance; however, failure to include prior peer acceptance as a covariate is a limitation considering the strong concurrent relation between peer acceptance and positive teacher-student relationships (Hughes, Cavell, &Willson, 2001).Similarly, Taylor (1989) found that low teacher preference predicted subsequent peer rejection after controlling for prior peer rejection. In an analog study, White and colleagues (1996) demonstrated that derogatory teacher feedback related to low teacher preference influenced peer likeability and peer perceptions of behaviour. By influencing peer likeability and perceptions of behaviour, teachers may contribute to the social reputations of children, thereby influencing peer rejection (Hymel et al., 1990). Based on these findings, there is support for the contention that low teacher preference may be an antecedent to peer rejection. Self confidence According to study entitled “Self-esteem and Academic......

Knowledge Management

...Management process. It will also examine Tacit vs. Explicit Knowledge and the importance they have in the Knowledge Management process. This research paper is presented in the form of a report hence comprehensive analysis and conclusion will be drawn from the findings of the research as it relates to the topic “Knowledge Management”. What is Knowledge Management? “Knowledge is power”, as quoted by the English philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626) (Henry, 2002). With the requisite knowledge, an individual or organization can achieve any goal or objective. Now we ask ourselves, “What is Knowledge Management”? To arrive at a possible response to such a question it is imperative to underline the key terms Knowledge and Management. (Cavell, 2002) claimed that Knowledge is the understanding of information and skills acquired through experience or education, which exists mostly in the minds of people. (Gomez-Mejia & Cardy, 2008) stated that Management is the action that correlate the efforts of people to achieve goals and objectives using available resources efficiently and effectively. In accordance to these two concise definitions my tone is set to define “Knowledge Management (KM) as a multi-disciplined approach to achieving organizational objectives by making the best use of knowledge. KM focuses on processes such as acquiring, creating and sharing knowledge and the cultural and technical foundations that support them” (University of North Carolina at......

Robert Frost Poems

...Sheri Belgard Professor Cavell English 1002, Section 08 04 November 2015 The Importance of Choices in the Poems of Robert Frost Robert Frost’s poems depict humans as travelers on the journey of life and are often centered on the setting of nature. While his poems may seem straightforward because of the simplistic natural setting, they often contain a much deeper and profound message, which resonates with the reader. Throughout our journey we must make choices, from the mundane, to the utterly life altering. There are three poems, "The Road Not Taken," "The Wood-Pile," and "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," that convey his idea that our choices shape our futures and the people we become. "The Road Not Taken", explores the acts and consequences of choices. The speaker finds himself between “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood/ And sorry I could not travel both” (Frost 1-2). The yellowness of the wood establishes an autumnal setting which is in sync with the speaker’s contemplative tone as he is deciding which road to take. The speaker looked down as far as he could, “To where it bent in the undergrowth” (Frost 4-5), but could not see beyond it. The “undergrowth” is a metaphor for the mysteries in life which remain unknown. The “two roads diverged” symbolizes the tough choices people come across while traveling the road of life. The regret of the speaker’s decision is expressed with a “sigh” as he reflects on the unsatisfactorily state of his current life, and......

I was in class and the principal came over the intercom and asked my teacher to let me be excused to be checked out of class. I knew something was wrong because my mom would never check me out without telling me. I got my stuff together and walked to the office. My grandpa was waiting outside the door for me. While we walked to the truck I was asking him if I was going to the doctor and he said no. when we got into the truck he told me that my uncle lance had passed away last night in a car accident. I looked at him and laughed because I thought he was just joking with me. I kept asking him over and over again if he was just joking and he wasn’t. I thought it was just a dream. I went to my grandpa’s house and waited for my mom and dad to come pick me up. When they got home they told me about the wreck. I asked them how my grandma was doing and they said she was doing really bad. She was at her house by herself when the cops came to tell her that her son had passed away.
