“World War II In Color: Total War,” (A&E Television Networks), 47:10 mins.

This documentary was designed to show what World War II was like in a color format. Most videos that have been produced were in black and white, and even though you get an idea of what the destruction and devastation was like, nothing will prepare you for seeing the devastation on all sides of the war in a color video format. “World War II in Color: Total War” is an unbiased documentary that was aired on the A&E Network in the year 2000.
This documentary was put together using diary entries, letters, and interviews of those who lived through World War II on all sides of the war. Some of the diary entries were horrifying to listen to, but when set to video of the event it really brought home how horrible this war was to live through by the civilians living in hard-hit cities. Mary Borg was a seventeen year old Jewish girl who lived in the Warsaw Ghetto and wrote in her diary about the great number of children left to be orphans because their parents were killed and how this affected them. She talked about how malnourished they were and how they looked like monkeys instead of children. These words were chilling in themselves, but to view the video of these small children ranging in ages of three years old and up made you want to cry.
This documentary also highlights the thoughts of soldiers fighting this war and some of the thoughts they had while killing others or running for their lives. Pvt. Harry Melart, a German soldier, wrote a letter home to his wife a week before his death that talked about how the battlefield disgusts him and he did not want to see bodies or blood anymore. Marine Chuck Ables, wrote in a letter home about the Japanese (calling them Nips) and how they would get drunk before running at US Soldiers and ultimately dieing. “Nuts, Johnny, just plain nuts. That describes them in full. They don’t give a damn whether they get killed or not, and that can’t be human.” “It is becoming an obsession with every officer and man in this devision to kill Japanese.” The last diary entry by Lt. Kawaguchi, a Japanese officer talks about sacrificing his body (suicide) and becoming a war god. During this segment of the video you see Japanese soldiers throwing themselves off cliffs, laying on grenades, and other forms of suicide.
The narration of this video was somber in itself, but next to the color video it made you feel like you were living through the bombings of Hamburg Germany, or the detainment of American Japanese in concentration camps in the United States, or the horrifying details of executions carried out in Pancevo, Serbia. Some of the same footage can be seen in black and white, but it just does not give the same connection to an event like a color video does.

Weeks 1&2 Video Analysis

...Week 1 & 2 Video Analysis Report Week 1 & 2 Analysis Report “Poor strategic planning is worse than no strategic planning. It can be a big waste of time and money” (“Strategic Thinking”, 2011, p.1). Strategic planning plays a very crucial role in helping organizations achieve their goals. The strategic planning process requires both managers and their subordinates to work together as a team to design, plan and implement those goals. We have noticed that there have been some deficiencies in the leadership of CanGo Inc. We have also provided some recommendations for the management team to improve their weaknesses so that the company can continue to stay successful in achieving its goals and launching itself to the online gaming industry. (1) There is a lack of mission, vision and value in CanGo Inc. Liz, the founder and CEO started her company with an emergent strategy process. This strategy would not allow the company to stay successful in the long run. Liz thinks that the success of the company has nothing to do with strategic planning. As a result, she fails to recognize the importance of strategic management planning. This issue is the top priority to be addressed because it is the core foundation of the success of the company (BUSN 460, Week 1 Video, 2003). (2) However, the management fails to analyze the company’s position in the market to set reasonable long-term and short-term goals. The goals and expectations seem to be unrealistic or unachievable.

Afghan Documentary Video Review

...The title derives from a genuine conviction of General John R. Allen remarking what he envisioned the Afghanistan war legacy to be: ‘‘Afghan forces defending Afghan people and enabling the government of this country to serve its citizens. This is victory, this is what winning looks like, and we should not shrink from using these words.’’ Directed by the award winning journalist Ben Anderson, you quickly realizse that the title is used with great irony revealing the trulye despondent state of the country, itsher corrupt leaders and the war battered civilians that were cast innocently into this mess. Upon Rresearch preparation ing for this review involved I watchinged several other pieces covering the battle against the Taliban in Afghanistan. The central purpose of those war-documentaries has usually been to give the viewers some sense of what a raw state of war feels like and the gritty situations in which that the soldiers are immersed. have to immerse themselves in. ‘This is what winning looks like’ has little of that, instead Anderson directs his gaze at the Afghan army and police who will ultimately be responsible for holding back the fort fromfrom the line against what the US sees as the scourge of the Taliban. This unique perspective which peers into the future displays the long-lasting effectiveness of terrorist organization of the Taliban’s capacity . With the official withdrawal of US and allied troops scheduled for late 2014, the time available to sand of time...

Music Video Review

...Music Video Review The music video of Thriller by Michael Jackson is directed by John Landis and published in 1983. It successfully promotes the song and the artist at that time. The short film is approximately thirteen minutes in length with around 250 shots, in which it uses various shots and editing techniques to present more than one storylines. The images and movements of camera also correspond well with the mysterious but fun tone of the song. In the first scene of the music video, we see a long continuous shot of a moving car in the forest. The first scene uses the sound of the nature to draw the audience in the story. As the car approaches the camera, the video cuts to a medium shot of Michael and a girl. Their car is out of gas. After their brief conversation, the editor directly cuts to their lower bodies walking in the forest. In this scene, we continue to hear the sounds of nature and the steps they take. The camera moves gradually to their upper body. The editor cuts between close-ups of the two characters’ faces during their conversation. After when Michael says he is different, the video directly cuts to the moon. We hear music for the first time in the video to show that something is going to happen. Michael starts to transform to a werewolf. The editor cuts between his transformation and the girl’s reaction. The camera moves closer and closer to the two characters and the editor then cuts between close-ups of Michal’s body parts and the girl’s screaming......

...   In the ancient Western World, nature of society, the family, government and politics, religion, ideals and values of that period were all facing great changes. Thus, there were many specific people and things emerging in that special period. "ANTIGONE" and "The King is Dancing" are two wonderful videos which can show those changes in ancient Western World.    First of all, I will talk about the "ANTIGONE". It is a video that can give us some information of ancient Greek. Polyneices and Eteocles, two brothers leading opposite sides in Thebes' civil war, have both been killed in battle. Creon, the new ruler of Thebes, has declared that Eteocles will be honored and Polyneices disgraced. The rebel brother's body will not be sanctified by holy rites, and will lay unburied to become the food of carrion animals. Antigone and Ismene are the sisters of the dead brothers. Antigone wants to bury Polyneices' body, in defiance of Creon's edict. Ismene refuses to help her, fearing the death penalty, but she is unable to dissuade Antigone from going to do the deed by herself. A Sentry enters, fearfully reporting that the body has been buried to Creon. When, Creon knows Antigone do that, he is very angry, and imprisons Antigone in a cave. Antigone is fiancee of Creon's son. Therefore, his son kills himself after he begged his father but did not success. Creon's wife knows her son's dead feels very sad, and kills herself, too. At that time, Creon blames himself for everything that has......

Mat 222 Week 1 Discussion

...that I was assigned are as follows: 1-x2x 2b-22b2-8 In my first expression, I start by transforming it to a rational expression (1-x) (1+x). Since each set contains terms that are perfect squares, I will factor using the difference of squares formula: a²-b²= (a-b) (a+b). In my problem, a = x and gives me: (-x+1) (x+1). Next, I reorder the polynomial from left to right starting with highest order term which is x = 0 As stated above, the domain of an expression is all real numbers except when the expression is undefined. Type equation here. (1-x)(1+x)x I simply the FOIL expression by multiplying and combining like terms giving me: 1-x2x I divide each term in the numerator and denominator. Then I reduce the term by removing the factor of x giving me the expression: 1x-x The Domain (D) is the set of all Real Numbers, written in set notation that would look like this: D = {x| x ∈ ℜ} The final answer is: x≠0 Undefined written in set notation. D={x|x ∈ R, x ≠ 0} In my second expression, I will start by factoring out the GCF (2) from the numerator and -2 and finally 2 from 2b – 2. This leaves me with: 2 (b-1)2b2-8 Next, I factor the denominator using the GCF (2) from 2b2, -8 and 2b2 – 8. This leaves us with the following expression: 2 (b-1)2 (b+2)(b-2) Each set contains terms that are perfect squares. I reduce the expression by canceling out all common factors from the numerator and denominator. b-1(b+2)(b-2) D = {All Real......

It is better to have separate admins due to the fact that each admin can focus solely on his appointed task and be better schooled in their particular field. 7.

Video Analysis Week 1

...1) Issue: My impression of CanGo is that they can be very impulsive. There is no real structure and can be based solely on being at the right place at the right time. When Liz was asked to present at the Chamber of Commerce a “game plan” she was stuck and didn’t know how her business became so successful and considered it an accident. Solution: I recommend first for a Mission and Vision statement to be the first priority in any business plan. The leaders of the company need to know what their purpose is, what they want to achieve and to whom they want to appeal. They need to create a strategic choice because they need to also identify how and why they became successful because it can be the time, location and demand of their product where they, so they can thrive off of that. 2) Issue: In the video where the idea of online gaming was proposed, there seemed like no one really knew anything about online gaming or what it was about. There was no preliminary marketing plan presented upfront and it just seemed like it was thrown out because it seemed fun and a good market. Solution: I would suggest preparing the preliminary marketing plan first and presenting it and doing some research on the business to know exactly what avenue to go through and how they are going to connect people “real time”. Online gaming can be broad and vague and there needs to be a focus or genre. Again there has to be a mission and vision statement and implementation strategy....

Video Case #1

...Stephanie Dunfee Article Summary 1 May 27, 2015 Video Case #1 – Chobani: Making Greek Yogurt a Household Name 1. Hamdi Ulukaya identified residents of Long Island, New York first for his first cups of Greek yogurt. The first cups were placed on shelves of a small grocery store in 2007. He focused on the “4Ps” to promote his yogurt. The first P was his product strategy. Ulukaya hired a yogurt master to help him develop Chobani. The product strategy focused on the actual product and packaging that product appropriately. The product undergoes an authentic straining process that removes excess liquid whey, resulting in a thicker, creamier yogurt with 13-18 grams of protein per single-serve cup. Chobani is higher in protein than regular yogurt, made with real fruit and only natural ingredients and preservative free. It does not contain any artificial flavors or sweeteners, but does contain five live and active cultures, including probiotics. As far as packaging, Ulukaya wanted a European style cup with a circular opening exactly 95 millimeters across. This shorter, wider cup is more visible on store shelves. In addition, he chose shrunk-on plastic sleeves with bright colors. Ulukaya’s price strategy involved approaching retailers directly rather than utilizing distributors. Prices were set high enough to recover costs and give reasonable margins to retailers, but not so high that they could be undercut. Ulukaya’s place strategy proved to be an extremely smart move.

...1. How successful do you feel CNS has been in trying to put their product in each of the markets it has entered? How does this success relate to brand equity? CNS has been very successful in marketing their products to those who have trouble sleeping due to snoring, those who may be sick and have nasal congestion, or to those who are affected from a case of sinus pressure and have trouble breathing. As mentioned in the video, they based the entire business around marketing and getting this product to the public therefore not only does it account for the majority of the company’s sales, but it also helps set it apart from other sleep aids. The market for items that help you sleep is massive with over the counter things in pill & liquid form, nasal sprays used for when you are sick, prescriptions from your health care physician, vaporizers, humidifiers that emit steam, and even surgeries to open your nasal passages; however, breathe right sets itself apart by being an FDA approved product that is drug free and is easily applicable for its users. Also relating to their success is their ability to adapt to the different cultures when they promote their products. As they experienced with marketing the product here in the United States vs. marketing in the United Kingdom, everything plays a part including packaging. Where the dark packaging worked in the United States because many Americans were able to connect that with sleeping and rest, the packaging in Europe had a......

Week 1 Video Case

...1.What other current Internet trends do you see as having an effect, negative or positive, on Internet spending? Explain your answer. One trend that I see having a negative impact on Internet spending is identity theft. I personally know many consumers who are afraid of buying anything online due to the fear of being susceptible to identity theft. These individuals have either already been a victim, or have heard/read/seen some sort of press on it. To the lay individual, some of the phishing sites look and feel very authentic and they can get scammed for either their money or their complete identity. As internet security gets better, hopefully this fear will go away. 2. Fulgoni refers to two major factors that drive consumers to purchase online rather than in physical stores: convenience and lower prices. What other factors would drive a consumer to purchase a product online rather than from, say, the local Walmart? What are the advantages of purchasing at a store? I can name a few factors that can drive a consumer to purchase a product online versus in store. I have found that when you purchase something online, lets say a blender from Walmart, you typically have greater options online with one being color. If my entire kitchen color scheme is red, and I really want to have a new red blender, I would look online first because the likelihood that the store would carry one is slim. Another example of why to purchase online is size. If you wear a specialty...
