Tank Man
On June 5, 1989 an unknown man from Beijing stood in front of a column of military tanks. This was the day the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force. This photograph was taken by Jeff Widener of the Associated Press. This picture is considered one of the iconic images of the 20th century. But there has been a repurposed image of the tank man that has yellow ducks instead of military tanks. The rubber duck has become very popular in Hong Kong Harbor. The author of this photo is unknown. It was published on June 5, 2013 on the Chinese micro blogging website Weibo, and has received so much attention that Chinese authorities have banned the term “big yellow duck”. What has not been told is that the government in china still does everything to keep the event in mystery, pretending it never happened. Looking at both of these pictures there has been a meaning change to the photo “Tank Man” because there was a switch of military tanks and rubber ducks. In both photo there is similarities and differences. In the Jeff Wiedener Photo “Tank Man”, there is a man who was protesting at Tiananmen Square while the military where going down the street. This unknown man, some saying his name is Wang Weilin, walked in the middle of the street and stopped in front of a line of military tanks. In a result of that these tanks had stop and tried to move around him and he wasn’t letting them go around. While he is standing in front of these tanks, he has two grocery bags in his hands. This unknown man shows courage and no fear because he stands up in front of a lot of people and a line of military tanks. Article explains that the man stepped in front of the tank every time it tried to make a move around him, so the tank completely stopped their engines. He then…...

A Man

...A shirtless young man stares out past the camera as if he is looking at the logo above his head. He needlessly clings to the rock to further accentuate his impressive body structure. The logo above his head reads “DOLCE & GABBANA” in a bold semi-transparent font. A small bottle of something is juxtaposed to his left. It is the item they are trying to sell, a sports cologne. This advertisement is very effective because of the use of ethos and pathos. Although those two parts are heavily used in this ad, logos is not present as much. Even with that being said many people are going to buy this particular cologne based on ethos and pathos. This is true because Dolce and Gabbana is a very well-known company, which plays a huge part in ethos with credibility and authority. Pathos is also used heavily with people wanting to look like that or women wanting their men to look like that; this makes the reader believe that if they wear this cologne women will be more attracted to them, and that they, too, can look as good as the model in the ad. This advertisement was featured in Muscle & Fitness magazine. This particular magazine is aimed towards classy young to middle-aged men who are professionals. This can be seen through the contents in the magazine. The magazine has lots of ads that are of watches, cologne, and nice cars. With that being said we do not believe that this magazine is geared toward younger teenage men because of what ads, pictures and articles in the......

A Man Is a Man

...A Short Essay A Man is a Man, A Woman is a Woman Tabitha Ponder Ashford University ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Professor Carla McGill February 4, 2013 A Man is a Man, A Woman is A Woman Some may say that a man is a man and a woman is a woman; and they should stay in there prospective places at all costs. Gender roles can sometimes be reversed. Specifically, I am going to address the gender reversal in marriage. Several factors may contribute to role (gender) reversal. It depends on the personality of the individuals involved, and how they learn to interact with one another (or not). Also, a change in circumstances or a chain of events can force a gender role reversal. For example, the husband may get hurt on the job and now the wife who is accustomed to staying home with the kids now is forced to go out and provide for the family. Let’s define gender roles within a traditional marriage between a man and a woman. Traditionally, the husband is the one who provides for the family financially. He is the bread winner. Because he is the bread winner, normally he is the final voice of authority in the home concerning any issues that may arise. The wife is the one who is the caregiver. The wife is the nurturer; she takes care of the children and the husband too! She is also takes care of the affairs of the home. The depth of most people’s belief in gender-role stereotypes is often overlooked. A husband may have the......

Shark Tank Paper

...Shark Tank is an American reality show produced by Mark Burnett. The show is about aspiring entrepreneurs bringing their business plan up in front of a panel of potential investors to see if they can sell their product to them and get the total investment amount needed. Today the first entrepreneur was Sarah Schulz the founder of Schulzies bread pudding. She was seeking an investment of $160,000 for a twenty percent equity stake in Shulzies. All the investors were able to try a variety of bread pudding which turned out to be a delicious surprise. The only thing lacking in Sarah's business was a stable yet sturdy business plan. The investors definitely wanted to help her, but the risk was far too high. As we all know, to have a successful business you have to have a successful business plan or you will crumble. The second entrepreneur was James Ambler who is the owner of Paparazzi Proposals. They go around capturing the perfect moment of a marriage proposal. He was seeking a $250,000 investment for twenty percent equity in his company. He explained to the panel that he wants to expand his business to cities other than just New York. The investors gave him helpful advice on how to go about the expansion and all recommended to first saturate his current market, New York City, and then go on to other destinations. Three of the “sharks” simply told him they don't see the need for that amount of money because the company isn't worth that much. Laurie was very......

...til aftalers indgåelse 1. Hvad er et løfte?   Et løfte er en ensidig erklæring fra en person om at ville påtage sig en pligt.

Shark Tank Analysis

...FSS4106 Professor Joel Feigenheimer Shark Tank Response Shark tank is a show I like a lot and I started watching it when it first came out years ago. It’s cool that people who come up with good business ideas can have an opportunity to present it to big time entrepreneurs (sharks) who have already made it and are now looking to invest their money on the next big thing. However, just having a good idea isn’t enough to convince a shark to invest their money; the show teaches you a lot about what investors look for in the people and products they invest in and the sorts of questions they frequently ask. The sharks look for clues that show the people have what it takes to run a successful business. The first step is when an individual comes in, states how much of an investment they’re looking for and then go ahead and present the product and concept. By the time the presentation is done, the product and its function should be totally clear, and depending on what the product is, they bring samples with them for the sharks to see. This leads to the second step, which is a question and answer session about the numbers and the business side of things. How long has the business been around? What are the sales numbers and profit margins from the past year? This is probably the most important part of the pitch because if the sales numbers are really impressive, sharks who might not have been too interested after part one all of a sudden want to hear more about the product.......

Shark Tank Case Study

...Nicholas Richards 23/09/2015 Prin. of Man. Shark Tank paper BuggyBeds When viewing videos for this paper I saw some pretty great and just some not so great products. But one stood out to me from all the others. During the show for this product, two women presents the Sharks with a product called BuggyBeds. This product was presented as an early detector for bed bugs around the house. These monitors attract bed bugs to the trap and keep them trapped using a special formulated glue. As stated by both women pitching their product, the glue is not poisonous and is not harmful to people, which is a must if little kids are around. The monitors themselves are very small and easy to use. All one has to do is unpack the monitor and then place it around the area/furniture one thinks might contain bed bugs, preferable under the desired object. I found it interesting while watching this bit show when one of the women informed the Sharks that there really is not a lot of early detection systems for bed bugs. For them to produce a two-pack it just costs about ~ $1.60 – 1.75, and then they may market the product for about $6.99. I choose this product that will sell/win because of just how big a problem bed bugs are for a huge number of people and organizations. One fact stated by the women pitching this product is that a female bed bug can produce upwards to 500 more bed bugs. That is frightening, without anyway to deal with bed bugs they would just keep appearing. To me, I feel......

...Moose and the Sparrow Hugh Garner From the very beginning Moose Maddon picked on him. The kid was bait for all of Maddon's cruel practical jokes around the camp. He was sent back to the tool-house for left-handed saws, and down to the office to ask the pay cheater if the day's mail was in, though the rest of us knew it was only flown out every week. The kid's name was Cecil, and Maddon used to mouth it with a simpering mockery, as if it pointed to the kid being something less than a man. I must admit though that the name fitted him, for Cecil was the least likely lumberjack I've seen in over twenty-five years in lumber camps. Though we knew he was intelligent enough, and a man too, if smaller than most of us, we all kidded him, in the good natured way a bunkhouse gang will. Maddon however always lisped the kid's name as if it belonged to a woman. Moose Maddon was as different from Cecil as it is possible for two human beings to be and still stay within the species. He was a big moose of a man, even for a lumber stiff, with a round flat unshaven face that looked down angrily and dourly at the world. Cecil on the other hand was hardly taller than an axe-handle, and almost as thin. He was about nineteen years old, with the looks of an inquisitive sparrow behind his thick horn-rimmed glasses. He had been sent out to the camp for the summer months by an distant relative who had a connection with the head office down in Vancouver. That summer we were cutting big stuff in......

"Fish Tank" Analysis

...Jason Poplin CINE 102.01 Fish Tank Fish Tank is an edgy, vulgar story about how a young girl named Mia struggles between choosing the path of following her passions or what’s best for her sister, Tyler, and her mother, Joanne. The various narrative elements, such as the conflict between Mia and Joanne, included in this film help illustrate this combating relationship, and directs the watcher to imagine how it would be to view the situation from both Mia’s perspective and Joanne’s. Another narrative element that set the mood of this film was the setting and how it was mostly dim and blue, giving a feeling of depression. This reflects the feeling of the town she’s living in and how the people around her might be feeling too, and how everyone is in the same boat but has different motives in life. The cinematic techniques, such as the free-handed film style, used in the film also help get the viewer in the mood that Mia’s life is always frantic. Another element that stood out was the sound which was only the sound of the background music and conversation. This sets a quiet tone and allows the viewer to feel more connected to the characters. Mia’s passion for dancing hinders her relationship with her Joanne and Tyler, but only because her mother believes that she has so much more potential than to be just a dancer. If her mother realized that to be happy doesn’t mean to be successful, then Mia would’ve been able to live out her passion while still having a......

The Man

...unhappy, God's unjust; If man alone engross not Heav'n's high care, Alone made perfect here, immortal there: Snatch from his hand the balance and the rod, Rejudge his justice, be the God of God. In pride, in reas'ning pride, our error lies; All quit their sphere, and rush into the skies. Pride still is aiming at the blest abodes, Men would be angels, angels would be gods. Aspiring to be gods, if angels fell, Aspiring to be angels, men rebel: And who but wishes to invert the laws Of order, sins against th' Eternal Cause. V. Ask for what end the heav'nly bodies shine, Earth for whose use? Pride answers, " 'Tis for mine: For me kind Nature wakes her genial pow'r, Suckles each herb, and spreads out ev'ry flow'r; Annual for me, the grape, the rose renew, The juice nectareous, and the balmy dew; For me, the mine a thousand treasures brings; For me, health gushes from a thousand springs; Seas roll to waft me, suns to light me rise; My foot-stool earth, my canopy the skies." But errs not Nature from this gracious end, From burning suns when livid deaths descend, When earthquakes swallow, or when tempests sweep Towns to one grave, whole nations to the deep? "No, ('tis replied) the first Almighty Cause Acts not by partial, but by gen'ral laws; Th' exceptions few; some change since all began: And what created perfect?"—Why then man? If the great end be human happiness, Then Nature deviates; and can man do less? As......

The Tank Case

...The Tank Case Issues American Pride Molded Plastics being contractor for government need to select the supplier lowest cost in order to provide lowest possible cost to U.S. Army. Being a military component it has stringent quality requirements in order to perform well in extreme conditions. There are multiple risks associated with any quality issue which include Federal charges and negative publicity. Alternatives a) Single sourcing from Goodyear b) Single sourcing from Hsu & Hsu c) Assuming there is not restriction on having more than one supplier, dual sourcing with Hsu & Hsu as primary supplier and Goodyear as secondary supplier Recommendation I recommend that American Pride Molded Plastics should go with the dual sourcing with Hsu & Hsu as primary supplier (75% of total volume) and Goodyear as secondary supplier (25% of total volume). Benefits of recommendation Rubber cost with dual sourcing with 75% volume to Hsu & Hsu comes upto $56306.25 for 11250 tires. And the total cost for 15000 tires goes upto $92990.63 which is $0.27/lb. This gives the cost advantage of $53746.88 over lowest cost option from the three potential suppliers. This cost benefit will make the U.S. government convince to go with offshore supplier. Considering the normal risks associated with the offshore supplier having one mainland supplier mitigates the risk of disruption in supply. With this option there will be improved market intelligence and improved......
