Film Critique of The Gifts of Ageing The general premise for this film is to show how many elderly are living longer, very productive lives. We meet several interesting and varied individuals who have maintained healthy productive lifestyles, some well into their 80’s. The individuals we meet are interesting and present a varied range. I found several to be likable and found myself actually curious as to their thoughts and tips on aging. Some show us how even when dealing with the many health issue we associate with aging you can still be active and independent.
The three major symptoms of this disorder are attention, often ignoring details, becoming distracted, and unable to complete tasks. Next is hyperactive behavior, children are often restless and find it difficult to sit still or be quiet. They are also impulsive, often interrupting and unable to wait their turn (Faces Interactive). * In David’s case, he seems to be a nice boy, fun and excited, but incredibly hyperactive. He seemed to be constantly moving and fidgety, o the point of making others around him nervous.
In George Bush’s ‘war on terror’ speech, George Bush has strongly depicted Al Qaeda as iniquitous freedom haters. He starts by using emotional appeal in his first sentence stating Al Qaeda as “enemies of freedom” to create a sense of injustice towards the audience, which manipulates them to support Bush’s contention and also trigger an emotional response. In his third paragraph, he uses a metaphor to describe Al Qaeda: “Al Qaeda is to terror what the mafia is to crime”. This automatically creates a negative image in the audience’s mind and furthermore, highlights Bush’s main point. Throughout his whole speech, he uses an anger and disparaging tome to reflect Bush’s point of view.
Hidden Message Never Been Kissed is a movie about a women, Josie Geller, who is smart but socially awkward. In high school she was the typical loser but she went on to be a copy editor for the Chicago Sun-Times. The editor-in-chief assigns her to report undercover at a high school to help parents become more aware of their children's lives. This sends the main character Josie back to high school, the place she hated most where she becomes the same unpopular girl she was in high school. Josie fights though the movie to be clear of her loser label and make it in with the cool crowd.
This is seen through themes and filming techniques. Parent vs. Children is one major theme shown throughout the film when Jess wants to succeed her dream by playing football for a girls’ team.

In the wedding scene and the football scene the theme is being shown when Jess is at the wedding and finally wins over her father to go play football and follow her dreams. In the wedding scene and the football scene, filming techniques have been used to make the scenes more interesting and creates tension for the audience.
Hersey uses many writing strategies, and targets a specific audience in order to evoke in the American people feelings of remorse, sympathy, and anger, and a personal connection with the victims of the atomic bombing. The last sentence of the first chapter reads, “There, in the tin factory, in the first moment of the atomic age, a human being was crushed by books”(Hersey 23). This statement ties a writing strategy to his intended purpose. Hersey uses irony here to show that these unpretentious and crude items caused the injury of this woman, albeit as a direct result of the refined and technologically advanced A-bomb. Whether Hersey may or may not have had any predilection toward the Christian or Catholic faith, his inclusion of religious aspects of Japanese life may have been a tool used to more closely relate these foreigners to the American people.

Should parents be punished for their children's bullying crimes? One New York student thinks so. She's taking her aggressors and their parents to court, and she's not the only one who favors such action. Caitlin Rocco, a senior at Scholars Academy in Rockaway Beach, told New York's CBS2 that she has been "tormented" for years by classmates. And while she said she's "counting the days until graduation," she doesn't plan to leave high school without fighting back.

Many people just settle for something that pays the bills and puts food on the table. As law became something that I gradually developed a passion for it also taught me a lot. Being a quite headstrong child, law helped me to think rationally when I came to solving my own personal problems or even getting my way. I learned not only how to protect myself but also my friends and family and hopefully one day, someone unable to protect them self. I remember when I first began to study law I thought it was entirely too much work but the more I read, the more I learned, and the more I appreciated each piece of information-filled paper.
