The Slow Progress

...dominatrix which the use of the strengths of masculine and feminine trait. This concept forms the basis of which tough women are depicted in films. In addition, Smelik (2009) argues that there is a new portrayal of gender roles in modern films rendering the older film theories irrelevant. While some have proven that traditional gender stereotype may exist (Sternheimer, 2003; Gilpatric, 2010), others have proved that there is a new trend towards a broader depiction of gender (Brown, 1996; Brown 2003; Nelmes, 2007; Smelik, 2009). These previous researches make it difficult to conclude if the trend is true. In light of this issue, this paper seeks to argue that because of the impossibility to eliminate traditional gender stereotypes, the progress towards a more accurate portrayal of gender has been slow in films. Traditional Gender Stereotype The traditional stereotypical image of gender is impossible to eliminate. Even in modern times where gender equality is fervently promoted, they are still present in modern films (Nelmes, 2007). In a study by Gilpatric (2010), he used violence as a strong indicator of masculinity in films. He concludes that although women have taken up violence in films, traditional gender stereotyping is still evident. Most of these women often still rely on the strength and direction of the male character which do not put in an empowering light. Women only appear to be independent but ultimately they still rely on men (Sternheimer, 2003). Male......

Work in Progress

...Work In Progress Title: "Inner Beauty" Size: 18" x 14" Medium:  Charcoal, Graphite, Carbon on White Paper Step One:  I am using charcoal for the background and graphite for the subject. I'm using Arches 140 lbs hot press watercolor paper for this drawing. This is one of my favorite papers. It has enough tooth to create dark values yet is smooth enough for very delicate textures. In this first step, I have cut out the shape of my subject(s) in frisket film and applied it to the paper. Then, I applied 3b soft charcoal to the background to begin creating a wood texture.   Step Two:  Next, I blended the charcoal with a piece of felt and added the beginnings of wood grain. I repeated this several times to build up a solid tone. After pulling out some highlights with a clic eraser, I used a sharp hard charcoal pencil to create shadows to help create slivers and chips in the wood. I also applied masking tape at this point. I will be drawing masking tape in these areas later. Some of the wood texture will show through from the previous step and give my drawn masking tape a little more transparency. Step Three:  Then, I sprayed the drawing with fixative, Peeled off the frisket and began rendering the subjects. I used a 6h graphite pencil to add tone to the paper and blended with a chamois. In some areas, I applied the graphite with the chamois. For those of you that haven’t tried blending with a chamois, it can produce incredibly subtle tones – almost like an air brush. I...

Surviving Progress

...Resources Progress is defined as a forward or onward movement towards a goal or destination. The film “Surviving Progress” explains the progress humanity as a whole has made and the progress we continue to make. Filmmakers Mathieu Roy and Harold Crooks show how much progress humans are making and how we have become into a progress trap with too much progress eventually leading to disaster and dead ends. No matter what humanity is always making progress in our civilization, economy, technology, and more; only problem, we’re making progress non-stop creating an eventual crash and destruction of Earth’s natural resources. Ronald White argues that humanity is in what he calls a “progress trap” which he explains “I came up with the term progress trap to define human behaviors that sort of seem to be good things, seem to be, to provide benefits in the short-term, but which ultimately lead to disaster, because they’re unsustainable.” Humanity as a whole has reached what is considered a “progress trap” many times already and is in the process of falling into deeper “progress traps” than ever with technology and our economics. In the past, as an example given by Ronald White, Hunting turned into a dead end when our ancestors were hunting to make their living. They went from killing one mammoth at a time and struggling to do so, to killing a whole heard of mammoths by running them over a cliff. This pushed them into a “progress trap”. These new hunting techniques had been great......

Progress

...Progress Walking through the school doors as a freshman on my first day of high school, I wasn’t thinking about who I would be walking out of those same doors four years later and a senior. I didn’t know what I was going to have to overcome. I wasn’t worried about college applications or SAT tests. I had no clue. The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyon demonstrates that knowledge is gained through travel. Christian is the central character of the book and the hero of the pilgrimage. Christian represents one aspect of the human experience: the search for religious truth. He is his faith (hence his name). Christian’s motivation, the search for salvation in the Celestial City, is comparable to the pilgrimage of high school. A pilgrimage depends in travel, and so a pilgrim, or high school student, must be prepared to go far and wide. High school is a pilgrimage, every student is a pilgrim united under a common goal: Graduation. The obstacles that are overcome in The Pilgrim’s Progress by the main character, Christian, correlate to the obstacles a student faces on her way to Graduation. In The Pilgrim’s Progress, the pilgrims face a series of obstacles and thwarters on their way to the Celestial City. They have to overcome their obstacles one by one. For me, achieving the grades that I needed to be successful in high school was not an easy thing for me to do. Over the course of my high school career I struggled to maintain a grade point average (GPA) that I thought would......

Student Progress

...Hassan, Ruman Ul February 17, 2014 GESP Writing2, Villamater Writing Journal 5 Student Progress In the current society, progress of an individual is interpreted at many different levels. Some assume it to be a matter of exchanging from one problem to another and some assume that it is reaching towards the success from one level to another. However, the individual’s progress can be easily illustrated by their efforts made in attaining the success from one level to another. Similarly, the progress of a student can be estimated in the same way on the basis of different aspects as well. Therefore, the different aspects to consider the student’s progress are efforts in attaining success, increase in knowledge, and personal growth. One of the aspects to evaluate student progress is the efforts in attaining success. The first step towards achieving the success is effort. The amount of effort students put in achieving their goals helps in determining the student’s progress. In addition, this effort in turn has other different aspects to consider like discipline and time management. With the help of these two factors it is easy to determine whether the student have made an effort or not. Take the example of a graduate English skill program (GESP) student. In GESP, the progress of a student is evaluated based on the efforts made by the student. They mainly focus on amount of effort student’s put in completing an assignment. In addition to effort they also consider discipline......

Speed and Progress

...In Social Time: The Heartbeat of Culture by Robert Levine with Ellen Wolff, author talked about different time senses in different countries and he shared his personal experience of different time senses in the article. After reading this article , one sentence got all my attention: “ Speed is frequently confused with progress”( page81,line3). For me, my parents and grandparents always warn me that time waits for no man, so I should finish things I need to do as soon as possible. Sometimes I can get really confused that do I really have to be that hurry? Can I slow myself down to finish something? So, when I saw this sentence, I really want to know if speed is progress. However, a question is not always wind up with a right answer or a wrong answer. We all know that time flies. As an old saying goes, “Time flies like an arrow , and time lost never returns.” Our life time is limited, but things we can experience in the world is unlimited. Faster we are, more meaningful things we can try. So, In many people’s opinion, speed definitely is progress. In the article, author shared his experience teaching in a Brazil college. Student there go to class around half an hour late and leave the class around half an hour late too, which means they are being late to do next thing for one hour or more. Nowadays, our life is so wonderful but very challenging at the same time. As a college student in the US, if i dont finish my work on time, I am not gonna get good grades. And if I am......

The Idea of Progress

...What is progress ? The idea of progress has always been the central interest of us, human beings. Nowadays, we are constantly pursuing improvements to which there is no limit. In my definition, progress is an increase in wellbeing. This can mean anything from living longer to becoming richer to gaining more power. Pillars of progress There are many components in progress. Any areas in which improvement affects one’s wellbeing constitute progress. Nevertheless, there are two categories of progress : material progress and humanitarian-moral progress. * The former encompasses economic, higher income and bigger GDP, scientific, and technological development. * The later includes enhanced human rights, women empowerment, the end of dictatorship, and other humanitarian objectives. * In addition to these two, other factors such as environment also compose progress. The first pillar of progress is economic development. In our society where materialistic values have continued to dominate, economic growth has often been understood to be synonymous with progress. Ex : Over a few decades, our world’s outstanding economic performance has lifted many people in the developing world out of poverty and has enabled countries such as China or India to experience fast economic growth. Another dimension of material progress is development in science and technology. Our society has achieved great development in science and technology that have made our......

Progress Report

...This is the progress report that you requested us to submit about our long report on, Coca Cola’s most successful and unsuccessful advertisements. Since the beginning of the long report we have been meeting every wednesday to work on completing the multiple criteria assigned. On our first night we discussed which company would provide the best advertisements to analyze. Unanimously we decided Coca Cola to be an excellent lead company with plenty of campaigns to choose from. After some basic research we narrowed down the long list of Coca Cola’s advertisements to a more manageable one. Our new list consisted of four successful and four unsuccessful ad campaigns allowing us to focus our research. The research completed helped us to determine a total of four ads that could be best analyzed throughout our long report. We then used that research to compose and submit our proposal for approval. After we received our proposal back and reviewed the suggestions, we revised any errors. Within the proposal we included employees from different advertising agencies we had an interest in writing letters to. We then composed our own letters containing a series of different questions and sent the letters to our designated experts in hopes to attain additional information. Finally, we finished our research for the long report and determined where each source would be used within the document. Throughout our meetings we did run into a few complications. One was finding a day,...

Progress

...Progress I'm a work in progress; you could even say we all are works in progress. As there are different kinds and types of animals, there are also different kinds and types of us human beings. A lot of things have changed on our planet Earth since God created it, and we, the mankind, are for certain not an exclusion. Many are even of the opinion, that we are the beings who have changed the most, and to tell the truth, I would not disagree to it. In Denmark, we have gone from being hunters and gatherers to farmers, building up towards the modern society and then further on to our current post-modern society, where we, the new generation, now, with all the different options and possibilities we have, focus a lot more on developing ourselves as individuals based on what we like to do, instead of what is expected and needed of us to do. The outcome of this has been, that our point of view on working has changed a lot, because we have invented all this technology that can replace some of the work we need to get done, and which contemporary also has caused a great increase of unemployment. It's not that we do less work, no; we still work a lot, and we work hard, but now, it's on a more science-based area, where the goal is to develop technology more than it already is. The work we do is on a complete other level than the pre-historical hunters and gatherers and it does not consist of the same basis, meaning that we now mostly work for our own satisfaction and curiosity rather...
