Norma says this towards the end of the story, when Norma is essentially telling Leroy she wants to be alone. The 14 years alone she’d been alone had helped her deal with the death of her child Randy, and Leroy’s permanent return home has brought back those feelings of their lost child. We can also infer from this that, Norma may have purposely taken bodybuilding, and composition classes In order to avoid Leroy’s constant presence at home. In the story we can clearly see the
And in Charlie’s Angels, we will see how it also represents the hybridization and transnationalization of film genres as proposed by Sheldon H. Lu in an essay, where he asserts that the adaptation of Hong Kong martial arts and also the casting of the Asian American Lucy Liu renders the film a multicultural one. These coincide with the concept of ‘Transnational aesthetics’ as mentioned by James Udden. However, I would also argue that the two movies fundamentally differ in the way that, while in Crouching Tiger Ang Lee gives audiences the transnational figure of Jen Yu, in the latter what we see are the figures of three women warriors who are highly sexualized and objectified. I would contend that this idea of the ‘male gaze’ which has been imposed upon the three women undercut their roles as transnational ‘women warriors’, a term Sheldon H. Lu bestows upon them. And in contrast to this, we will see how Jen Yu, despite being a femme fatale figure, is still portrayed as possessing the spirit of the wuxia – a genre Stephen Teo argues plays an important role in the construction of Chinese national cinema identity.
The emphasis of Amy Tan’s work lies on the interpersonal relationships between each mother and her daughter; their differences and their similarities. In an attempt to grasp the entirety and the complexity of the mother-daughter bond, Amy Tan writes some chapters from the view of the mothers, while others build on the thoughts and perspectives of the daughters. To emphasize the different approaches of Chinese-American families in dealing with the immense differences between the cultures and traditions of China and the US and to immerse the reader into her work, Amy Tan skillfully places the characters in ever-day situations that every reader can identify with.

Mental/Behavioral Case Study Shanille Banks HCS/245 November 24, 2014 Professor Cheryl Meaux Mental/Behavioral Case Study My client Jenny Stanson, a 20 year-old college student living with her grandmother came to me seeking help for her grandmother who has shown symptoms of having Alzheimer’s disease. She noticed that her grandmother seems to be confused at times, forgetful of things that she has been told, and is often short-tempered. Ms. Stanson stated to me even though these symptoms mentioned do not happen often, this is clearly not her grandmother’s normal behavior. Ms. Stanson is very concerned about the well-being of her grandmother and something has to be done to get to the bottom of the problem. After reviewing this case, we cannot assume that Ms. Stanson’s grandmother actually has Alzheimer’s disease, even with the symptoms that may be present.

Nobody in the family had talked to Royal in decades until he found that Etheline was considering marrying another man in which case he told her that he was dying in order to try to get back in the family but truthfully trying to stop the marriage. In the film the parents have very unique parenting styles as well as many forms of symbolism which I will be discussing a few of these. Royal and Etheline had very different teaching styles which took two different extremes. Royal had almost completely deserted the children and had almost no involvement in their lives. That is except for Richie who had become a professional tennis player very young.
