In the movie easy A, a teen comedy, the main character Olive is initially presented to the viewers as the virginal and feminine high school student who dresses like the average high school student, mostly in pants, and turns out to be transformed into the sex object/pin-up girl to resemble her counterparts in the movie. One being her best friend Rhi and the other Marianne, both whom which throughout the entire movie are always in very short skirts and/or extremely revealing tops, especially Rhiannon. Nonetheless, the one normal, dressing female in the movie, Olive, is then in turn forced and presented as a skank, a whore, and a home wrecker. Although one of the central themes of the movie is the loss of virginity, there are no sex scenes and it does displays a witty, contemporary, modern day spin on Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic novel, The Scarlet Letter. Moreover, the message depicted throughout the movie is that an innocent, little white lie can get blown out of proportion and that teenagers in general are concerned of how others perceive them in their day to day lives.

The movie starts off with Olive being portrayed as a virginal, down to earth, average high school student with no cares in the world but is hastily transformed into the slutty female character very commonly used throughout Hollywood films to depict females nowadays. When a little white lie about losing her virginity meant for her best friends ears only gets out of hand and spreads across campus like wild fire, Olive's persona is transformed into the school whore and is labeled as "easy". With that, her quiet innocent life is altered and takes a turn for the worse. Even though this is just another teen movie representing Hollywood and strictly for entertainment purposes, sadly a lot of teens are effected by how media represents teenagers, especially girls in…...

...Easy A The Princess Bride, Groundhog Day, and Ferris Bueller’s Day off have all become some of the great classic comedies of all time. What makes a classic comedies movie? A classic stands the test of time. It does not matter the period the film was made, because people can relate to the storyline in each era. The plots are solid. The films are enjoyed generation after generation. I believe Easy A will be joining this group of classic comedies as move generation moves to the next one. What makes Easy A such a great movie, that will last for generations, is its story. About how one lie can change the way everyone see you. It is a relatable and clever movie, with great humor and quotable one-liners. Easy A is about a high school student, Olive Penderghast, played by the talented Emma Stone, finds herself the victim of her school's "rumor mill". When she lies to her best friend Rhiannon, played by Alyson Michalka that she has a date with a nonexistent community college student, so that she doesn’t have to spend the weekend with Rhiannon and her family. The two of them are over heard in the bathroom the next Monday as Olive lies about her encounter, telling Rhiannon that she lost her virginity that weekend with her fictitious boyfriend. The rumor spreads through the school like wild fire; she soon becomes the scandal of the school after the religious fanatic Marianne decides to make her the school outcast. Meanwhile, Olive is studying "The Scarlet Letter" in the English...

Easy Motors

...The Easy Rider Motor Company The Easy Rider Motor Company manufactures a recreational vehicle - specifically a truck camper - called the Free Spirit, which it sells through franchised dealers at a retail price of $12,000. (A truck camper consists of a pick-up truck and a housing cabin. The housing cabin is mounted on the bed of the pick-up truck, just behind the driver’s cabin. Consumers typically use truck campers for driving down to holiday spots like forests, lake sides, sea shores, mountain valleys etc. and camping there for a short holiday in the comfort of the housing cabin).The dealers have been pressuring the company to add a second recreational vehicle to the line at the higher end. In response, the company has designed the High Rise and is about to set its price to dealers and customers, Here are the major facts: 1. The company has enough plant capacity to produce up to five hundred units per year of the new model. Any more than this would require investing in new plant capacity. 2. The fixed costs of producing the High Rise are estimated at $500,000. The direct costs are estimated at $10,000 per unit. 3. There is a major competitor producing a high-quality recreational vehicle retailing for $14,000. The competitor charges its dealers $11,200 - a 20 percent dealer discount off the retail price. The company estimates that the competitor's profit margin is approximately $1,400 per unit. The competitor sells about six hundred units per year. 4. The company would like......

It Wasn't Easy

...Multicultural Issues Exam ll Option 1: It wasn't easy for the early immigrants. When they came to America they went through discrimination, prejudice, and weren't really welcomed due to nativism. With all the hardship they were put through, they didn't back down. They came here for a better life and nothing was going to stop them. In the text the book described what the immigrants desires were for coming to the United States and it wasn't only to have a better life, but to have freedom to express themselves and to be able to live the ultimate dream. When the immigrants came to America certain races and ethnics groups overcame more nativism then others, such as the Italians and those of Irish decent. When the Italians came to America they settled faster than the Irish because they weren't as discriminated against. They were offered more jobs and were trusted more than the Irish were. Their only disadvantage was that they didn't know any English, but they adapted faster to be part of society. When the Irish immigrated they were the first Europeans to be ill-treated. Not like the Italians, the Irish were not as trusted because they were seen as potato planters and were seen as very poor workers and they were too involved with the catholic churches. When both Italian and Irish finally settled they both had to become “white” meaning they had to change their identity as a nationality group rather than viewing themselves in terms of a village or province. The reason the......

Easy Rider

...Douglas Salayka Prof. Major Easy Rider Easy rider was a film I couldn’t understand. I have to say I didn't like it. I somewhat respect what the film did for the industry but still I cant full respect it for the scenes of them having sex at the graveyard. That was a bit to much for me. The movie starts out with a cocaine deal, The 2 main characters then wanted to use the money and jet. The scenes of them riding around on motorcycles used music from the time like Born to be wild. At that time it was very new to be using tracks like that in films. For that reason I give the movie bonus points because it did something nobody ever really did at the time. So the 2 men on the road trip find themselves in all sorts of trouble. The film actually used real drugs in the scenes that depicted them using cocaine and marijuana. To me that's crazy, but I know Dennis hopper had to do with this as he was a user at the time. I even read that Jack Nicholson actually came out and said it was real marijuana that he smoked. In class we touched upon why Jack Nicholson died but the other men didn't. I think we came to a consensus that it was just luck that they survived a bit longer but I still don't get that. The biggest thing I want to talk about is the drug tripping scene in the graveyard. Hopper didn't get permission or anything to film there and they were basically having sex on the tombstone of a dead child. If something like this happened now the media would be all over it saying how......

...Analysis on EasyCar.com, n.d.). In concern to service design, car rental service is a relatively tangible, homogenous service with reasonably little levels of customer contact that represents the need to focus industry's service design on the physical facilities, operations and processes. Given that car rental service is a relatively tangible, homogenous service with fairly low levels of customer contact (i.e., simultaneity), rental companies tend to focus their service design on the physical facilities, processes and procedures (Clarke & Chen, 2007). Additionally, employees' behaviours are not insignificant as they are also having secondary importance to facilities, processes and procedures in service design in the car rental industry. 2. Easy Car's Low Price Strategy For supporting its low price strategy, the EasyCar had adopted various measures that are substantially different from traditional car rental companies. Its approach is quite different from the approach used by traditional car rental companies (John & Luis, 2005). Its approach is built on the easyJet model. It rent only a single vehicle type at each location it operates, while most of its competitors rent a broad variety of vehicle types. EasyCar did not work with agents. Approximate 95% of its bookings are made through the company's website and the remaining bookings are made directly through the company's phone reservation system (Case Study Analysis: Easycar.com, n.d.). On the other hand, the most of......

Easy Rider

...Easy Riders, Raging Bulls Sex. Drugs. Rock and Roll. Three simple words that helped shaped an era that brought some of the greatest movies, such as The Godfather, Jaws, and The Taxi Driver. In the book Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, by Peter Biskind takes us on a bumpy and wild ride of the era that challenged new ideas to young filmmaker’s that stimulated an edgier movie industry. This book is compelled of hundreds of interviews, with directors, stars, agents, and even one night stands. It tells the up close and personal story in way that celebrities never talked about drugs, sex, and money and the repercussions. Easy Riders, Raging Bulls is remarkable in the way that gave us an understanding and behind the scenes of Hollywood’s last golden age. “The 70s were the first time that a kind of age restriction was lifted. Young people were allowed to come rushing in with all of their naïveté and their wisdom and the privileges of youth. It was just an avalanche of new ideas, which is why the 70s were such a watershed” (Biskind 15). A small low budget biker movie made in 1969 sparked the new era of movies, known as Easy Rider. This movie was a shock but a huge success to Hollywood for the fact it was made with drugs, booze, and violent rivalry. Once Easy Rider was successful a new breed of directors were in demand, such as Francis Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, George Lucas, and Martin Scorsese. This book contains so much research and extensive interviews of not only the directors,......

The Purchasing Decision 1. What are factors that a farmer in Taranaki will take into account before purchasing Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate? Marton Site Logistics 2. Outline the logistic decisions that Hatuma Lime needs to make to set up the Marton site? Building Brand Equity 3. What does management need to do to build the Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate brand equity? 1 The Purchasing Decision Price Point The farm paddock can be likened to the engine room of the farm, opting not to fertilise for more than one or two years can cause significant damage to a paddock. In 2009 rising cost of fertiliser and decreasing farm income forced farmers to compare the benefit of fertilising paddocks or reducing stock numbers to maintain (Smith, 2009). Phosphate consumption has been steady in recent years at around 140,000 tonnes, indicating good sales for fertiliser companies (Fertiliser Matters, 2015). Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate marketing manager Aaron Topp feels that high analysis fertilisers have out priced themselves. Dicalcic phosphate (DP) uses 50% less phosphate and is therefor cheaper to produce and purchase (personal communication,......

Easy Jet

...of this new product offering. Easyjet was particularly successful because it had tight reign on costs and overheads. It could make savings where other airlines could not. For example: i) Easyjet maximised the utilization of assets - with faster turnaround on flights ii) it only flew its aircraft point to point, with no connecting flights - thus it did not incur the costly ticketing procedures associated with flight connections iii) it had no ticketing (paperless office) - customers used e-mail reference numbers to board flights. All these aspects helped to keep its costs to the minimum. Easyjet had effective branding. The brand was developed quickly and it soon obtained recognition for being a “value” airline that was safe. The orange “Easy” brand was very effective. Stelios, was focused at making sure that Easyjet was seen as pro-active airline - one that was focused on limiting the impact on the environment and offering the best possible value for its customers. It delivered on its promises. Easyjet was a pioneer in the use of the internet to both advertise and retail airline tickets. Its Information technology infrastructure had a unique demand and sell application which determined the price of the airline ticket - and helped to ensure flights remained full. Bookings by customers were made online and customers did not need to receive tickets through the post, providing further cost savings. IT infrastructure enabled costs savings, 95% of tickets are currently sold......
