Several types of noise were shown in this movie. At practice, the players discussed the way their tiredness and thirst, physiological noise, were affecting their performance. Physical noise was rampant at the games. Fans intentionally get really loud while the other team is on offense to confuse them and hopefully mess them up. The coaches and teammates had to yell at each other so they could hear what plays to run over all the noise in the stadium.
‘Teasing and taunting can terrify vulnerable teenagers.’ Figurative language. Using metaphors, similes or personification to draw a picture in the audience’s mind, for example, ‘This war is a cancer’, ‘like vultures circling over their prey’. ‘Young people may not be angels but nor are they devils with horns and a pointed tail.’ Exaggeration. Overstating a view or statistic to impress the audience, for example, for example, ‘There are thousands of cases where …’ Contrast. Putting two opposing ideas or facts next to each other to show up how different they are, for example, ‘Should we support the tiny groups of protesters or the vast armies of the police?’ Using personal pronouns.
Cormier’s writing is intriguing—difficult to put down, but dark and sort of scary at the same time. The book’s cover sports a photo of a dreary and someone ominous looking football field and some downtrodden football player appears in the midst of it. From the start of the story, it is obvious that things are not ideal for the people in the story. The tone seems sad, almost painfully so, since Cormier is so good at conveying the characters’ pain—physical and mental. Early on, he describes Jerry Renault’s pain as he is tackled on the football field.

Response to eSports don't belong at the Olympics In the article “eSports don’t belong at the Olympics” by Nathan Brown he claims that we probably won’t be seeing esports enter the Olympics within the next 30 years and tells us why in some very easy to see and clear details. His first point he makes is on how the general culture of the world views videogames and being a professional gamer in itself. People view videogames as either a time waster that children play with or something that isn’t a sport at all it’s just a silly game that immature people spend their time with. Both of these alone easily block the entrance for videogames. People’s perception on what sport is a very large part of what influences the committees to allow games to enter and how much show time they get.
Net Neutrality has been around ever since telephones were invented, and during these times people pay none to very little attention to it. Now in 2018, it has become the biggest problem that people had to face this year. There are many reasons why people hate it but it also has some important features that a few people love. Although Net Neutrality provides protection for company websites, it brings many risks to the average user because some people are not able to pay the price for the many topics they have to do research on. Net Neutrality is where the government allows the companies of network operations such as Sprint or AT&T be able to charge as much as they want for people to buy their products.

It is also said that soldiers admired the game so much that they missed archery practice to watch it.
"Generate More Repeat Customers" is useless as a KPI without some way to distinguish between new and repeat customers. "Be The Most Popular Company" won't work as a KPI because there is no way to measure the company's popularity or compare it to others. It is also important to define the Key Performance Indicators and stay with the same definition from year to year. For a KPI of "Increase Sales", you need to address considerations like whether to measure by units sold or by dollar value of sales. Will returns be deducted from sales in the month of the sale or the month of the return?
Firstly violence can break friendships. What I mean by this is that in Ireland many kids learn to fight when they are young and this led to a lot of injuries. For example in the novel when Kevin started acting like he didn’t want any more war against the protestants Brian was angered and violently lashed against Kevin and another example is that Brian with his two friends started beating up Kevin in the streets. This is important as it showed us how violence had changed Brian and all he wanted to do was fight, especially his friends that he thought was traitors. Secondly violence causes many deaths.
