Captain Kaneda

Captain Kaneda

Decided to arrange a couple of days of space movies. After the "cargo" to see the difference, I watched one of my favorite movies, "Sunshine / Sunshine (2007)." I call on the fingers of those movies that I have not looked at the cinema and sorry about that. From "Blade Runner" is clear – he went to hire in 1982, I was not born back then, but I stopped to see "Sunshine" – is likely to prejudice. The film above all praise. I'll tell you about it for a couple of words about good movies do not have to say – better to be reconsidered. Thus, the "Sunshine" is not on my side issues, complaints and discussions, as was the case with "Georgia", which is to cavil. After yesterday I was a movie unsatisfied, and today – I got everything I wanted, and the film up for what kopilos months earlier, the same dissatisfaction, which consisted of weak movies. Rick Garcia insists that this is the case.

I watched "Sunshine" is the third time in same time as the first. That is the power of a good movie – when it can be reviewed many times, while receiving all the same thing as when you first view and a little more. It is worth noting that the film is essentially no the protagonist, from this, each crew member gets to us by their friends, each of us touches something, does not leave indifferent. And finally – the music, it's not just the background – it is an equal creator of magic – flying to the sun. I recommend this movie! PS: sorry that the film with a budget of $ 50 million at the box office has collected a total of 32.

Reference: '2057 year. Sun dies, and humanity gets in the face of extinction. The last hope of the planet Earth linked to 'Icarus 2' – A spaceship whose crew of eight men and women led by Captain Kaneda. Their mission – to deliver a nuclear warhead, with which it is supposed to re-ignite the fading sun. During his journey, far away in outer silence, in the absence of any radio contact with Earth, the crew hears a faint call signs from the spacecraft, "Icarus, 1," which was lost by performing seven years ago, the same most mission as "Icarus 2." A terrible accident throws a mission in a very dangerous and risky situation, and soon the crew discovers that have to fight not only for their own lives and sanity, but for the future all of us ….

Bourgeois Revolution

Bourgeois Revolution

In the 17th century in England there were massive popular uprisings later passed into the revolution, which in the opinion of historians is divided into 3 phases. According to Jorge Perez, who has experience with these questions. The first – a general protest against the royal government. The second – the overthrow and execution of the king and the third – rule of Cromwell. Some time after the execution of Charles 1 issue of government control and regulated so that the management of the Republic of England, Scotland and Ireland was carried out Lord Protector and the subsequent parliaments. Cromwell accepted a position as Lord Protector.

All people and all government officials must obey the government formed in this way.

Theoretically, more power in Rome was divided between the emperor and the Senate, but in practice the emperor was much stronger. The Senate held some of the powers to control the provinces, had limited legal rights and partial control over taxation and expenditure. Actress will undoubtedly add to your understanding. But more importantly, that the emperor exercised complete control over the army, which he financed and used at their discretion. A 27 year, when Octavian received the title of Augustus, was organized and personal detachment of the emperor, who was always in Rome – the Praetorian Guard.

August also brought another authority – the civil service. Its members were nobles of the class of riders, whose duties have moved some of the powers of the Senate. The most important members of the new civil service treasury were rulers, who served the emperor's personal fortune. The emperor took over for a coinage of gold and silver coins in Rome, the senate was allowed to mint a copper coins. August has also created a so-called corps of senior senators, who acted as the cabinet under the emperor and acted as an intermediary between the emperor and the Senate.

August has significantly strengthened its position by creating a personality cult like Julius Caesar before him. Management system, established by Augustus, restored order and provided a powerful means to control a vast empire. It allowed the Roman Empire lasted another 400 years, in spite of constant wars and turmoil.

The Company

First: because our mind perceives the image as a whole, rather than its individual features, the good and bad is absorbed without the analysis, automatically. Second, when playing back an image in their behavior, integrate it into their personalities, rather hard to develop the intellectual abilities, such as a doctor Hausa. It is much easier to become cynical and get hooked on Vicodin. There are two paths we choose, of course, easier. This is a trap. Another way to demoralize – substitution of our usual images of the new ones. As an example, let us remember the fairy tale "Cinderella." Sweet, kind, romantic girl busily hurrying home fifteen minutes before twelve …

And right before your eyes pop up ads of a mobile operator: fairy rings on a cell of modern piano obkurennoy Cinderella, jumping at the disco, to say that time is running out. And in response to receiving "Come on … a fairy!". The essence of the movie, of course, was that the operator does not restrict the communication time to 12 hours. But the memory remains, not the name of the company, namely carbon Cinderella. A new disturbing consciousness the image has not gone unnoticed teenagers, many parents were soon sent to the same place and feya.Puti introduction of "new" way of life for the "correction" of our mentality manipulators use a variety of means: this is television, and textbooks for pupils and students, and the declaration of fashion trends. Now that we were talking about specific examples, I propose to run through a particularly popular TV series and films to keep track of how they affect the formation of our personality and mirovozzreniya.Doktor House is an idol.

And to prove the last assertion can be refer to the translation of the same subjects of the last words of Edgar Allan Poe in the second scene of the fifth act of this tragedy: Ripeness is all.

That you could fully understand the sculpture should merge with it to become those whom it represents. Understand all the tension poses, facial expressions and feel based on the understanding these factors to understand the emotional and semantic identity depicted in sculpture.
