Gang Development and Control Tables

Gang Development

Below are descriptions of gang development theories. Copy and paste the correct description into the table below next to the appropriate theory. There are five descriptions and four theories. One description is not valid.

• Gang members are violent and rarely show remorse or feelings regarding their violent and criminal actions. Members may join a gang because it provides them a release for their personal problems, which may include drug abuse, low self-esteem, and family problems.
• Gang members typically come from low income areas and may even be considered to have been “forced” into gang life in order to survive. The gang provides a sense of belonging in a world where members may lack positive role models and the ability to attain status in a way considered acceptable by society.
• Joining a gang is a way to obtain money and protection. It is often seen as a personal decision to gain success. Members who join for this reason feel pride when they get away with a crime and were most likely committing illegal acts long before joining a gang.
• Members join a gang to have a safe social circle and to learn techniques to communicate through graffiti. Gang members use those techniques to display their gang’s strength and power in their neighborhood. Members who join a gang for this reason are typically involved in drug use and truancy but rarely violent acts of delinquency.
• Individuals who join gangs for this reason may have an older family member who is a gang member. They may go through distinct hazing rituals before they can join. The hazing rituals offer assurance that the individual is capable and ready to start his or her new life as a gang…...

...Cancer Patient Information 13 August 2011 Hodgkin’s Disease What is Hodgkin’s disease? Hodgkin’s disease is named for Dr. Thomas Hodgkin, who described several cases of the cancer within the lymph system in 1832. Hodgkin’s disease is a type of lymphoma. Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system, which is the body system responsible for fighting off infections and keeping one healthy. It is the third most common type of cancer in kids and teens ages 10 to 14 but is still very rare for kids to get (The Nemours Foundation, 2011). What causes Hodgkin’s disease? No one really knows what causes Hodgkin’s disease, but it cannot be caused by getting someone else’s germs or by eating the wrong foods. The risk of Hodgkin’s is slightly increased among family members of patients who carry the disease (The Nemours Foundation, 2011). How does Hodgkin’s disease affect the body? Hodgkin's disease affects the body's cells. Healthy cells grow, divide, and replace themselves in an orderly manner. This process keeps the body in good repair. In Hodgkin's disease, cells in the lymphatic system grow abnormally and can spread to other organs. As the disease progresses, the body is less able to fight infection (The Nemours Foundation, 2011). What about detection and prevention? Hodgkin’s disease presents symptoms similar to those of the flu – fever, aches, and swollen glands. One may also feel tired or sweat excessively during the night or losing weight without trying. One may also...

Run Lola Run

...The film ‘Run Lola Run’ directed by Tome Tykwer depicts various themes associated with mise-en-scene. Each theme provides unique elements to the two major components of mise-en-scene; design and composition. Every scene is characterized by urgency, and by creating this mood, the film is able to convey a feeling of expectation through hinting at things to come. It is through expectation that, time, setting and character relationship are able to govern much of what unfolds during the course of the film. Time seems to be a major reoccurring theme in Run Lola Run. The film emphasizes time constraint with every scene. Among other themes, the effect of time interaction is depicted in photographs of future events to take place in the lives of the people Lola encounters. The attention paid to time is evident in the constant reference to clocks; and the scenes depicting Lola running around the city only add to the pressure of making the twenty minute deadline given to Lola’s boyfriend Manni by his boss Ronni. The fast paced music compliments the tension faced by the Lola and Manni and grabs the viewer’s attention. The upbeat music never lets the audience forget the main characters goal of coming up with 100,000 marks within the allotted twenty minute time span. One specific instance occurs when a close up of Lola’s face as she’s thinking about various people to ask for help cuts to a shot of a ticking clock. The sound of the clock along with a visual of her father shaking his......

Run Lola Run

...In the film Run Lola Run the flow of the movie relies heavily on how quickly the shots move from one thing to another. The editing in the first ten minutes alone conveys to the audience that this film will revolve around rushing around, going fast, and as the title suggests, running. The fast moving editing techniques are well used to express the importance of time and how it matters. The opening scene is an array of memories about what just happened mixed with the current time frame of what is happening. The arrangement of these shots and the pace at which they evolve helps set the audience in a mood of urgency and gloom. The montage sequence links the story Manni is telling Lola, showing it as a single, continuous episode. Each cut falls perfectly into line with the dialogue as it is spoken allowing the audience further insight to the story line. The editing done is very precise and builds to a climax that really pulled me in. The tempo increases and increases, building a heightened sense of desperation. Then suddenly Lola screams and the action comes to a screeching halt. A quick cut to a turtle crawling across the floor emphasizes just how slowed down everything just became. The sounds put each cut on another level of amazement. At the 5:08 mark a heavy bass, techno genre song starts to play quietly. Between cuts you start hearing a slight noise like something is rushing by your ear. The continuity of each of their voices as they go from their location to the others,...
