Questions for the movie Seven
Morgan Freeman – detective William Somerset: It doesn’t hurt that the film features some magnificent acting. I think, Morgan Freeman has been casted for the movie, because he’s a phenomenal actor. He’s a very convincing actor, who gives his roles a perfect touch. He seems so real in action. Morgan Freeman is likely the best performer working today, and I don’t think he’s ever been better than here as veteran detective Somerset. Freeman is a very versatile actor and he embodies the range of emotions felt by Somerset vividly. The detective is a complex character and Freeman manages to display these impressions quietly and subtly but with beautiful precision. Freeman exhibits the unreliable tones of the role and makes the character come to life. In Seven he appears as the veteran. He knows what he’s doing, and supposed to do in the movie, to make it good. In the beginning he gets David Mills on the neck, which is trying hard to make a good job to impress William. I think, Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt compliment each other well, and they have many similarities and differences. For example the age, the play, the way they are interpreting their roles and so on. Brad Pitt – detective David Mills: I think, Brad Pitt has been casted for the movie, because he’s the perfect contrast to Morgan Freeman and also a very good actor. They are absolute opposites, young and older, black and white, spontaneous and thoughtful. Kevin Spacey – John Doe: I’ve read that Kevin Spacey was cast two days before filming began, but if I haven’t read it, I wouldn’t believe it. He plays the role fantastic. He’s so suspicious and convincing in his acting. I was so caught off his appearance at the end of the movie, that I actually thought, he was a murder in real. He managed to live into the psychological drama, without it seems abnormally.
The doe, Mills and Somerset…...

Although most people take prescription medications responsibly, an estimated 52 million people have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons at least once in their lifetimes. They are potentially deadly when taken in large doses or when combined with alcohol or other drugs. Take Gerald Levert, an R&B singer, who passed away at the age of 40. It was accidental acute intoxication because of a combination of prescription and over-the-counter drugs; including Vicodin, Percocet, and Darvocet for his shoulder and Achilles tendon injuries, also Xanax for anxiety attacks. Just because they are legal does not mean that pharmaceutical drugs are any less dangerous than illicit drugs. There are several misconceptions about taking prescription drugs without a......

The Deadly Visitor

...The Deadly Visitor I had never seen something so sad. The look on her old, but young face when the doctors told her the news. She always had this glow, barely any wrinkles, make up always done, hair died a crimson red to keep the grey from peeking its way through. She was beautiful, always was. This was my grandmother who had just been told she had stage four breast cancer. The treatments were pointless, they only caused more pain when they knew death was knocking on her front door. They made the promises of many years to come, as long as she continued with the treatments. Who knew doctors could lie so well? Not any of us, all oblivious to the fact that she wouldn't be here much longer. The promise of a couple more years was enough to keep our hopes high, maybe we wouldn't lose the woman we loved the most as soon as we thought. I was there through it all, the many doctor visits, the chemo, radiation. Through the hair and weight loss, the inability to finish writing a single sentence. The frail state her body took during the course of the awful disease, everything. My grandmother had always been so strong, no one could break her. The cancer managed to, it was over before it even started. The doctors promised years, who knew it would only be months? Filled with pain, and tears. Lets start from the beginning, shall we? It all started that Christmas in South Carolina with my uncle and three cousins. We just had moved back to Torrington, in with my grandparents. I guess she......

Deadly Dose

...Deadly Dose Millions of patients a year get wrong medication dosages at hospitals. Receiving the wrong dosage or the wrong medication in general can lead to serious issues or even result in death. Baby, Alyssa Shinn, was an example of this. Alyssa received an overdose of zinc after she was born 14 weeks too early. After being in the hospital for quite some time in neonatal intensive care, Alyssa was making progress and getting healthier day by day. When the Shinns arrived at the hospital the next day they found out that Alyssa was overdosed on zinc, the medication to help her metabolism. The lead pharmacist Pam Goff, accidentally entered in 330 milligrams to give to Alyssa, where she should have entered in 330 micrograms. Alyssa was prescribed 1,000 times more zinc then was supposed to be prescribed. Goff claims they were short staffed at the time, which can make things kind of hectic, but it wasn’t all Goff’s fault. Two other pharmacists failed to double check Goff’s work. The pharmacy technician who had filled the machine should have noticed that putting 48 vials of the medication should have been wrong or off. As well as the nurses who checked on Alyssa should have noticed the bag was bigger than normal and should have said something. Making sure all measurements are labeled properly is the one of the most important tasks one can have. People die everyday due to misdiagnoses, overdosing or under-dosing on medications, or just doctors and pharmacists not being......

Sin Taxes

...THE RELEVANCY OF “SIN TAXES” “Sin Taxes” Alcohol, tobacco, and high caloretic foods are easy to find in our daily lives but contain hazards to the human body, not just short term hazards but also long term. The use of these products can lead to slowing blood flow, clogged arteries, low states of energy, and other life changing health issues. Products that are seen as being harmful to the human body have been commonly referred to as “sinful”. In order to regulate and lessen the long term effects due to the intake of dangerous substances such as alcohol, tobacco, and unhealthy foods the government has resorted to increased fees on these items dubbed “sin taxes”. The United States Government wants to impose new regulations and taxes on products that are considered by most “sinful”. While some measures to eliminate the consumption of high content calorie soft drinks have come under fire as of late, other products have been in the spotlight for many generations. Research has shown that the use of some products, such as tobacco and alcohol, have lifelong negative effects on the human body and bystanders alike. Tobacco use has had a progressive rise in the past few decades due to marketing and the widened use in movies and other broadcasted programs seen by many people. In turn consumers assume the use of tobacco is a “cool” thing to do and find themselves soon addicted to these products. Unfortunately users disregard the statistical facts that the short and long......

Seven Deadly Sins

...taon na akong nakikisinghot ng oxygen plus usok ng jeep dito sa earth, at isang gabing hindi nananaman ako dinalaw ni kumareng antok, umapaw nanaman ang brain activity ng genious ni kimpoy. Naisip ko lang, pagharap ko kay Lord sakaling madeds na ako gaano ba kalinis ang konsensya ko, kung meron man. Kung ililitanya ko lahat ng pagkakataong nagkasala ako baka i-close mo na ito at hindi na basahin. Pero guilty ako sa halos lahat ng kasalanan na maiisip mo at kaya mong ilimita sa salita wag mo lang akong mabintangbintangan na nagpa-abort.

Lahat nasungitan ko, baka nga napikon na sakin yung mga kasama ko. Pero kung susumahin, iilang beses palang talaga ako sobrang nagalit sa buong buhay ko (kung tama ang pagkakaalala ko). Galit na galit ako nun nung hindi ko naranasan maski minsan ang JS prom at nung pakiramdam ko ay naloko ako, sa sobrang bigat nung pakiramdam lalo na at hindi ko mailabas dahil hindi ko kayang kagalitan yung taong gumawa sa akin nun, halos gabi gabi kapag mag-isa ako ay umiiyak talaga ako, yun lang kasi ang kaya ko we. Madalas nagagalit ako sa sarili ko. Ang ganda ko kasi we. JOKE. Baka magalit ka......

What Are the Five Deadly Sins of Marketing?

...the Five Deadly Sins of Marketing? Marketing involves promoting or bringing awareness to your product or service, and it is crucial to the survival and prosperity of your business. Not every business owner holds a marketing degree, and some companies do not hire marketing experts. In either case, an effective marketing campaign might develop from trial and error. Even if a company's owner doesn't have a marketing background, it's imperative that he recognizes and avoids five deadly sins of marketing. Forgetting Your Target Audience Failing to keep your target audience in mind results in squandering advertising budgets on marketing to the wrong groups of people. This is a deadly sin because your message will reach people who do not have a need for your product or service. Target marketing ensures that your message reaches the right group of people. Before you can create a targeted message, you must first define your target audience. Start by listing the benefits of your products. Consider the price point for your product or service. Next, decide who's likely to need your product or service. If you're marketing a line of beauty products, for example, businesses such as salons, nail shops, spas and beauty supply stores might benefit from your products. Ignoring Your Customers' Needs Overlooking your customers' needs can kill your marketing efforts because you're likely to structure a marketing strategy that isn't customer-driven or customer-focused. Avoiding this sin......

Seven Deadly Sins

...Argument Essay The everyday “sins” of typical college students are not of great severity at first, but by consistently repeating the “sins”, they could possibly become habits. Thomas H. Benton’s essay “The Seven Deadly Sins of Students”, describes the seven “deadly sins” that a typical college student makes in everyday life and how the recurrence of these “sins” could lead to habitual behavior. The seven “deadly sins” explained in Benton’s essay is: Sloth, Greed, Anger, Lust, Gluttony, Envy, and Pride. Constantly repeating these “sins” will eventually become habits. Most people try to take the quick, or easy way out of most situations. This ideal is no different than what college students believe they have to do to “express their unique talents” (Benton). Typical students “take the path of least resistance” with hopes of creating an easier life upon themselves when “they don’t understand that those choices will eventually cause more unhappiness than the more difficult paths they chose not to walk” (Benton). The “path of least resistance” may have some happy and successful people emerge from its walkways, but more often than not, the repetition of the “deadly sins” will consequently bring one down to unhappiness and sorrow. Pride, first in the order of the seven deadly sins settled on by the church, could be defined as being very conceited about one’s self. I believe that pride could get out of hand because it is easy to say that you are more successful, better, and......

Seven Dead Sins

...The seven deadly sins The worst deadly sin: The worst dead sin is defanately pride, it is the mother of all the deadly sins. I thought about, every thing could be leaded by pride. People become envy, or jalous at you because they don’t have the selfconvidence as you have. When people are envy the things they regret afterwards, they don’t think about the consequences of the act. What i mean by that is; envy leads to wrath. If you are self-absorbed you probably like to see yourself in the mirror, if other people likes what they see, they would try their best to look like the person who is sinning. Then, again pride leads to another deadly sin, namely envy. It’s a bit dobbelt standard, that the teachers told us to believe in our selves, then a couple of years later they tells us about the seven deadly sin, pride is one of them. But then again, i wouldn’t mind to hear that another person was proud of me. Or are proud of me. I don’t know why it is so important to “mean” something. Some people are famous just because the want to be, not because they have a special talent. The moment i wrote this i thought about Sidney Lee, i bet nobody cant name one thing he is known for. (His look is just image, he can do absoulutely nothing) The least worst deadly sin: I thought about this one for a while, each and everyone of the sins are very bad. I had to choose one, so i chose Wrath. Wrath is the least worst deadly sin because; It can almost always be solved somehow. If you are angry......

The Deadly Traditions

...Shawna Parker Jonathan Cook English 112 28 September 2008 The Deadly Traditions Throughout the course of life, families have traditions and cultural norms. As you get older or the family grows traditions sometimes need to change. “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson illuminates the struggle of human survival. We as human are instinctively designed to preserve our lives, as we know it. Jackson uses symbolism, setting, irony and structure in the essay, to show to that life is a gamble. Most of use is creatures of habit. We don’t adjust to changes that interfere with our way of life. In the story of “The Lottery”, Jackson uses irony to show a slip of paper can cause a life changing event. Mrs. Hutchinson was late to the lottery because of her dishes. Somehow her dishes seemed more important than getting to the lottery on time. But once she remembered what the day was she went a running. As she arrived the villagers were making fun of her because she was late. Her explanation,” Wouldn’t have me leave m’ dishes in the sink now, would you Joe?” (12-13) or perhaps maybe she felt the fear of possibly losing one of her family members. One could even see the metaphoric belief if she is late maybe the lottery itself would just go away and not take place. How does a family accept having to participate in a tradition that is fatal ritual? Every thing seemed so fun and jokingly until the Hutchinson family made their deadly draw. It was ironically when Mr. Hutchinson drew the death......
