I enjoyed reading your post for this week’s discussion board forum. I may have to say that your thoughts are good thoughts; never think that you’re thinking too deeply. Deep thoughts carry stronger outputs, remember that. First, I would like to say that I didn’t think about poverty, immigrants and human trafficking until you stated this in your feedback. Immigrants and human trafficking is extremely important when it comes to VDPV being seen in the United States. There are so many scenarios when individuals are not able to get the required vaccination to keep them from contracting and spreading diseases. I believe that God wants us all to be protected from the harm of earthly diseases, but what are we to do for those who are in difficult circumstances.
Following the success of the US version of The Office starring Steve Carell on NBC, Parks and Recreation, a small-town government political mockumentary, premiered on NBC in April 2009. The show trails Leslie Knope, an employee of Pawnee, Indiana’s Parks and Recreation department, as she pursues both her political and altruistic ambitions to better the town and perhaps the entire country through bureaucratic hard-work. The audience journeys through the amusing political climate of a small middle-America town, as Leslie attempts to beautify and magnify her town via new parks, programs, and events. With thanks to the talented, comedic cast, including SNL’s Amy Poehler and The West Wing’s Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation aired for 7 seasons, recently
In Monty Python and the Holy Grail satire is used quite often to make fun of the Catholic faith. One of the most noteworthy moments is near the beginning of the movie when the monks are walking through the town chanting. Monty Python may use rather ludicrous humor to get their point across; however, they do a good job conveying the faults in the Catholic Church and display them on film. The movie does this through setting, characters’ costumes, and music.
Medieval literature is involved in the school classroom for a very long time. Medieval literature is very important and even though it's old it offers many interesting stories and life lessons. There are many medieval literature works- Beowulf, the author tales, and more. The film of Monty Python and the holy grail combines all the medieval literature and satirises them all. The Monty Python film mocks and satirizes a lot of the important themes in the medieval literature. Among the many themes it satirizes, the theme of Chivalric Code and Knightly Behavior is the most prevalent. Many themes are repeated over and over again and it is easy to draw conclusions from what we read in class to the movie. Through this essay I will show these examples.
So the last two newsletters, in my opinion, were a pleasant diversion and definitely cathartic for me! Soaring rhetoric and amazing separation of independent clauses with perfectly placed semi-colons, passing references to Zero Mostel, zombie apocalypses, orange urine, loan calculations; plus, an obscure Bible reference, regarding seed sowing and free range donkeys. However, no matter how high you fly, someone always seems to be there ready, willing, and eager to shoot you down, and when the other shoe finally does drop from the sky, it usually lands in a steaming pile of doggy doo! So back to the old grindstone W.E. go; but, before unflinchingly diving headlong into number two, let me
In general, hubris is defined as having excessive pride or overconfidence, which can eventually lead to a downfall. In the past, Greeks described hubris as direct defiance of the gods wishes, however, the meaning of hubris has developed over time. Today, hubris is seen more as having a lack of humility or blind arrogance that leads an individual to believe that they are above typical human limitations, essentially godlike. One such individual that exhibits this ill-appealing quality is the current president of the United States, Donald Trump. Over the last couple of years, and since beginning his term in office, President Trump has displayed excessive pride, arrogance, and self-confidence through his political rallies, press conferences, demeaning tweets, and much more. Unlike the leaders before him, our president is simply “…a real estate developer known for golf courses, casinos, and a Moscow beauty pageant; he’s a gambler with other people’s money who exhibits poor judgment” (Blake, “Trump Sharing Highly Classified Information with Russia Shows His Extreme Hubris”). Examining President Trump’s decisions and the examples of hubris presented in Sophocles’ “Oedipus Tyrannus”, Andrew George’s “The Epic of Gilgamesh: the Babylonian Epic Poem and Other Texts in Akkadian and Sumerian” and the “Holy Bible: New International Version”, shows that his hubristic character will result in a tragic end for him and the entire nation alike.
Imagine a world where everyone was accepted, no matter where they came from. It’s a dream world, am I right? Everyone has to come up in the world, and make their own place for themselves. Well, in Fresh off the Boat, Eddie Huang has to do this in the suburban world of Orlando. Being Taiwanese, he does not exactly fit into the stereotypical ‘American’ life. So, in this series, he and his family work hard to live the American dream.
Have you ever witnessed something that was so absurd yet convincingly real? If you have, the Onion, a satirical news organization, may help recreate that feeling with some of their videos and articles. Published in 2011 on the Onion’s website and on YouTube, the video “College Basketball Star Heroically Overcomes Tragic Rape He Committed” satirizes how lightly people who commit rape are punished, and their crime even forgotten about. The video, employs the use of clever satire to convince the audience unfamiliar with the Onion that the report is real, while having implicit meanings and messages about rape culture in the United States. While the video still speaks
Today, mostly everyone has a television at home. Who doesn't? Yet, had we considered what effects television does to us when we spend hours watching it for a long while? Ehrenreich assertion of television are accurate because people spent their time sitting in the couch being slothful, doing nothing interesting, and spending their whole time watching tv.
Final Paper Rough Draft Auston Collins Ever since their inception in the early 1930’s, television programs have revolutionized the United States in countless ways. From informing millions about current news to allowing sports fans to watch their team playing across the country, television has truly been one of the most revolutionary inventions of the past century. More recently, television programs have begun to comment and take a position on current events. In particular, satire has been very common, as it uses wit and irony to critique certain aspects of society.
Dr. Seuss, an amazing writer who showed the world of satire and literature to all ages. Books such as The Lorax, The Foot book and The Butter Battle Book are perfect examples of that. Seuss, a man known for his creative vision and use of words, made these books a satire gold mine! We already know about his rhymes but Seuss was also extremely good at using exaggeration. Don't forget his amazing use of onomatopoeias or his profound use of repetition. I could go on forever but the fact is Dr Seuss and his creative mind has an amazing talent for using satire to make his books come to life. To make his books stick around for so long and to open the minds of his reader to the world of satire and the amazing world of literature.
Obtained by the outcomes from corrective action, the genre of satire advocates for the preservation of moral principles, the need to reform, and the attempt to instigate change. Satire has become a powerful art form intended to improve humanity by pointing out the deficiencies in certain human behaviors and the corruptions of modern society. Satire also has the competence to protect its creator from accountability for criticism, because it is covertly implied rather than openly stated; thus, it becomes a powerful tool for people in repressive political and social periods. With its intentions to ridicule those vices, satire has progressively made its way into literature, television, the internet, comics and cartoons. Modern satire as portrayed in the cartoon South Park has transformed into a powerful satirical work, in which four young boys propose to expose the ugly truth, meanwhile the adults render to the senselessness of society. Alternatively, Swift effectively uses each experience in Gulliver’s Travels to satirize a vast of issues which were once significantly influential in the seventeenth and eighteenth century England, including government, human pride, religion, and philosophy. Modern society struggles to obtain the good of civilization which is constantly being threatened by man's immorality, causing satirist to unmask those vices for the society’s good. While knowledge is constantly ridiculed, satire is the hindrance of immoral issues, attempting to condemn the
