Frankenstien and Blade Runner Comparative

* Analyse how Frankenstein and Blade Runner imaginatively portray individuals who challenge the established values of their time. ???Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.??? ??“ Albert Einstein Mary Shelley??™s gothic and romantic novel ???Frankenstein??? and Ridley Scott??™s science fiction noir film ???Blade Runner??? both explore similar ideas, relative to the context in which they were both made. Both Scott and Shelley use their texts as a cautionary tale, warning human society of their inevitable downfall through greed, the exploitation of nature and the influence of science are slowly taking over the role of religion. Through the use of visual and auditory techniques, Scott demonstrates how nature and religion are absent in a world overrun by consumerism and technology while Shelley similarly uses imagery and allusions to hint at the consequences humanity will suffer if they attempt...

Cars

-Residents of low-density, residential-only sprawling communities are also more likely to die in car collisions[original research] which kill 1.2 million people worldwide each year, and injure about forty times this number. -[20] Sprawl is more broadly a factor in inactivity and obesity, which in turn can lead to increased risk of a variety of diseases.[ -Sports cars go way too fast. Environmental impact See also: automobile emissions ? Transportation is a major contributor to air pollution in most industrialised nations. According to the American Surface Transportation Policy Project nearly half of all Americans are breathing unhealthy air. Their study showed air quality in dozens of metropolitan areas has worsened over the last decade.[27] In the United States the average passenger car emits 11,450? lbs (5 tonnes) of carbon dioxide, along with smaller amounts of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen.[28] Animals and plants are often negatively impacted by automobiles via habitat destruction and pollution. Over the lifetime of the average automobile the "loss of habitat...

Frankfurt Aka Frankfurt Am Main

Frankfurt Am Main Most, if not all of us, have all heard of Manhattan, but what about ???Mainhattan??™ Mainhattan is the nickname affectionately given to the city of Frankfurt Am Main (meaning literally, Frankfurt on the river Main), Germany. The reason Frankfurt has earned this name is because of its status as an economic and cultural hub, just like the city Manhattan. In fact, the official Frankfurt website even states that it is ???the most international city in Germany???. Since Frankfurt is vital to Germany and Europe as a whole, it is no wonder that the city as a whole is so diverse, with many things to see and places to visit. Frankfurt??™s economic influence on Germany is no secret. Just like Manhattan in America, Frankfurt is home to the financial systems of Germany. These include the trading system XETRA and the Frankfurter Wertpapierborse (Frankfurt stock exchange). The stock exchange is the largest in Germany and second largest in...

Carsof the Future

Concept Cars of Tomorrow With gas in the United States averaging $3.31 per gallon this week and the average car getting about 27 mpg in regular driving conditions, the latest concept car was featured on ABC News. Peugeot Citroen announced a ???hybrid air??? prototype that is powered by compressed air. It claims that the air is refilled internally by the engine and the brake system from the car and gets a 117 MPG. The company claims that it would cut gas cost by as much as 80 percent and that production, which would start in 2016, would begin in compact size cars and expand to mid-sized vehicles. On average, I drive 93 miles daily to work and approximately 10 miles daily for my ???honey-do??? list. My routine of $20.00 of gas and $1.00 for the cup of ???Joe??? in mornings leaves me with a total of $430.00 spent monthly on fuel. As an average middle-class American with three...

Frankles Views

Viktor Frankl??™s Work in Relation to Marx, Sartre and Freud Viktor Frankl is a well known author and psychiatrist who formed a method of therapy called Logotherapy after being a prisoner of a concentration camp in the 1930??™s. His work has been compared to other great minds like Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx and Jean-Paul Sartre. All four of these men were considered to b e philosophers in their own right. Some are more closely related to philosophical state of mind known as existentialism. Maybe all of these men were. This is what the paper is going to determine. Viktor Frankl served a couple of years in the worst concentration camp that surfaced during World War II known as Auschwitz. During his stay in the camps, Frankl lost his father, mother, brother and wife. The only family member that survived and was spared was his sister. Frankl was stripped down to his bare naked self...

Cart Lab

Cart Lab Write-Up Objective: To determine, with a constant incline, how an object changes speed over time. Procedure: We conducted our lab through numerous trials to first get accurate and precise data. Some variables that were in our system were object size, angle of surface, density of object, texture of surface, wind resistance, gravity, starting velocity, the object, and obviously time. In this experiment we focused on two things. Our independent variable was the time, which was taken by the motion detector we used, as well as our dependant variable of position. The controls we used were the ramp, gravity, direction, incline angle, the cart, and motion detector. Once conducting the experiment and calculating its velocity by putting its displacement and dividing it by the time it took (given by the motion detector), we then could calculate changes in velocity using simple subtraction from one data set to the next. We organized this data in a neat table,...

Franklin D. Roosevelt

There have been many important and influential people who contributed to the advance of human civilization and progress. In my opinion, Franklin D. Roosevelt was the most influential person throughout human history. He served as the President of United States for four terms. That is when the United States faced some of the darkest years in its history. First, the economy collapsed. Millions of people were forced out of work and into poverty. This is known as the Great Depression. Then World War II threatened the freedom of Americas allies; and possibly Americas freedom too. Also, he brought awareness to the polio disease after he was diagnosed with the disease. There are three important reasons that can support why Roosevelt was an influential individual in human history. First, Franklin D. Roosevelt tried to encourage people during the troubled time. Most importantly, he had courage and a good attitude. He was able to convince Americans that they could...
