Unit 2: Assignment 1 After reviewing the Lyndon B. Johnson “Daisy Ad” and the “I’m Mad” advertisement by Ronald Regan for support of Barry Goldwater, there are similarities between the two videos as well as vast differences. The Johnson campaign committee made a very dramatic dramatization of what would happen if the people of the United States elected Goldwater for president in 1964, portraying that if Goldwater were elected the entire nation would be thrown into war. During this terrible time frame which was referred to as the Cold War, people were constantly on edge of fear of a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union and its allies, many U.S. citizens were accused of treason and blackballed. Johnson wanted to use the fear and gullibility of the nation at that time to gain an advantage in the presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Regan spent the entirety of the Goldwater ad attempting to clear the dirt away from the Goldwater family. But, in this advertisement for Goldwater, Regan does little to retract the statements made by the Johnson ad, instead he tries to justify that the country needs someone impulsive to keep the nation on edge and to keep the nations defenses at a maximum.
Both videos portray attempts by both candidates to manipulate the voters through fear of an imminent attack on the U.S. by Soviet forces. The only differences in the videos is how they catered the message to the viewers, with the Johnson ad being a direct attempt to slander the opponent, whilst the Goldwater ad was a mere rebuke by Regan attempting to defend a friend. After comparing both videos, they fit perfectly within the framework of the critical approach, in that each video attempted to change society; each video wanting the same goal of a fearful and easily manipulated group of voters to allow for victory on their side for the presidential campaign of…...

Daisy Miller

...explain ways this takes place. Realism has a set of criteria that make it unique, and one of the critics doing so is William Cain. Morality, subjectivity, psychology, and the types of characters all help mold realism into what it is. Through the characters and how distant they are to the audience, it is easy to see how both Henry James’s “Daisy Miller: A Study” and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” fit well within Cain’s ideas on realism in Literary Realism in America. When reading “Daisy Miller: A Study” the main character and protagonist is Winterbourne, but the most intriguing character is Daisy Miller. Unlike Winterbourne, you do not have access to her thoughts, and it is up to you and Winterbourne’s thoughts to determine what to think of her. “He had never yet heard a young girl express herself in just this fashion; never, at least, save in cases where to say such things seemed a kind of demonstrative evidence of a certain laxity of deportment. And yet was he to accuse Miss Daisy Miller of actual or potential inconduite.” Cain says that in realism characters should not fit the mold of what society has made for them. Daisy is a perfect example because of her being an American woman in another culture and not meeting the expectations that previous generations have put on the young people of the time. Cain states, “Realism also suggests taking account of persons, places, and things that prior artists and writers have neglected—those of the middle......

Electric Daisy Carnival

...Darlin Tino 09/14/13 English 121 Memoir Paper Electric Daisy Carnival The bright, colorful beams of light illuminated the night sky. Never in my life have I seen an image full of neon colors, glow in the dark items, brilliant lights, and music all caused by energetic people. There was a huge amount of daisies that caught my eye, especially the very tall, bright, moving daisy. It was a world of fantasy. There was a huge old school stereo standing in about ten feet tall and twelve feet wide. Enormous butterflies and caterpillars were roaming around. The Gingerbread Man, the Teletubbies, and Ernie from Sesame Street were all present. This was just too much for me, but it put a silly smile on my face that I carried for the rest of the night. My feelings were the lava from a volcano ready to erupt. The nervous feeling I had disappeared in an instant. My eyes were popped open like an owl’s eyes that never seem to close. I didn’t want to blink, because I did not want to miss a second. I froze for a good amount of time trying to take in the good vibes that stuffed the air. I took a deep breath before I stepped foot into the fantasy planet that was full of life, bad influence, and unpredictable outcomes. The people added a glow to the place. Females wore poufy skirts, fuzzy boots, and flowered headbands. The males had eye-catching t-shirts. Both were clothed in all sorts of colors blending in with the theme. They wore multicolored beaded bracelets that were being traded,......

Why Did Daisy Stay

...at the Buchannan dinner table??? The Great Gatsby is a novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald that tells the story of the ‘great’ Jay Gatsby, but along with his story we learn about Daisy Buchannan the love of his life and their torrid love affair. It seemed as though Daisy was ready to leave her husband Tom in Chapter VII (Fitzgerald pg. 134) but by the end of the novel Daisy has chosen to run away to New York with Tom leaving Gatsby behind without saying anything. The novel did not go into any detail as to why Daisy chooses to stay with Tom, but in one scene after all of the chaos form the brief trip to the city we see Tom and Daisy sitting at the kitchen table over a cold dinner and some ale talking, the reader is not told what is said (Fitzgerald pg. 146). The reader can infer that several things were discussed at the dinner table that evening to make Daisy leave Gatsby behind, such as Tom’s old money and ability to provide, Gatsby’s new money and his reputation, as well as Daisy’s herself. There are several good reasons why Daisy Buchannan stays with her husband Tom instead of leaving him for Gatsby. One of the reasons that she could’ve chosen to stay is the same reason that she chooses to marry Tom in the first place; he was a safe secure choice. Tom came from money, old money, and to someone like Daisy who was also of old money this was a way to a secure future without worry. The reader is made aware of Tom’s wealth is Chapter 4 when Jordan Baker, Daisy’s dearest friend......

Daisy Miller

...English 102 20 February 2014 Question 5: Question 5: Women at the End of the 19th Century Daisy Miller is the female main character in the short story by Henry James. Mr. Winterbourne describes her as a pretty American flirt, suggesting she is somewhat liberal and improper, as per the young man’s impression. Mr. Winterbourne is also a relatively young American man, about twenty-seven years old. He has spent a lot of time in Europe, becoming accustomed to a different world view from that of the American family and more specifically that of Daisy Miller. When the story begins, Winterbourne is seated at the garden of a hotel in Vevey when he meets Daisy’s younger brother Randolph, a pleasant little fellow, brave enough to ask a stranger for sugar, and justifying his request by saying that he is an American boy who misses candy from back home. When his sister Daisy appears and is introduced to Winterbourne, he expects her to be as proper and uptight as the women in Geneva. He even fears for his image, as he struggles to decide what would be proper for him to say to her, considering that he found her attractive. However, Winterbourne is put at ease when he finds Daisy more liberated than he had seen in a long time. When James describes her, as “…very charming; but how deucedly sociable” (12), he gives the impression that he had expected her to exercise some form of restraint upon their acquaintance, since they had just met. He did enjoy her company, but he certainly wasn’t......

Ad Influence

...of positive memories and feelings that over time people’s beliefs are effected. Could it be that advertising shapes our desire for a more creative lifestyle like those portrayed in ads? In Advertising as Art Michael Schudson questions whether advertising consciously gets people to have faith and buy the advertised product, or subconsciously works when attitudes and assumptions implied in advertising become real to the people surrounded by ads. Today’s advertisements don’t ask to be taken literally, yet marketers have to be careful to not be misleading when targeting a certain group of audience. For instance, in a Bergdorf Goodman magazine ad a male model is wearing a blue suit with a small smirk on his face. Bold-white font writing brings the viewer’s attention to the phrase “A Goodman finishes first.” Everything in this ad seems it can be true to those who wear suits. The ad successfully targets middle class or white-collar men who seek fulfillment in their lives. The phrase from the ad is trying to prompt the audience to believe that they will get what they desire, whether it’s girls, a raise, or attractiveness, by wearing the suit. The male model looks confident standing in an upright position with one hand in his pocket and the other hand by his side. A description is on the bottom of the ad that describes that the model is a political affairs officer. The ad’s assumes that successful and good-looking men shop at Goodman’s Men’s Store. This assumption will make men......

Daisy Miller Review

...Why Daisy Miller is a Study on Daisy Miller Daisy Miller is a novel written by Henry James and was first published in the summer of the year 1877. Daisy Miller, the novel, brought international success to Henry James and has been hailed as the first “international novel” by many, and I agree that this novel is known worldwide. However, the novel is not as famous as it is now as it was in the year it was first published. The full title of the book is Daisy Miller: A Study and the content holds truth to its title as the story progresses through observations on the character of Daisy. The story of Daisy Miller does not actually begin with Daisy Miller herself or her as the narrator of the story. It first begins in Vevey, Switzerland with a young American man named Winterbourne, who is the narrator of the story. Winterbourne first meets, not Daisy, but the girl’s younger brother Randolph Miller. Winterbourne later becomes acquaintances with Daisy Miller, whom he finds intriguing and different from the European girls as she is an American, and accompanies her on a trip to the famed castle nearby. After the two part ways in the end of part one, Winterbourne is still curious about Daisy Miller. He goes to Rome, Italy; where his aunt has an apartment, to visit Daisy whom he had promised to meet. When he arrives, his aunt informs him of the latest gossips surrounding Daisy, as the young American girl has become acquainted with many gentlemen friends in Rome; the most talked......

Explore the Presentation of Myrtle Daisy and Cecilia

...Explore the presentation of Myrtle, Daisy and Cecilia Myrtle is presented as a woman that is made to look a little bit cheap, and a woman who is from a lower class to those of Daisy, Tom and Gatsby. We can see this clearly as she lives in the valley of ashes. This is almost an automatic contrast to Daisy who lives in West egg. As an egg has just been born, and is full of a future, whereas ashes are something that remains from a thing that used to live, but will never be anything again. Something that Daisy, Myrtle and Cecilia all have in common is that they’re all materialistic. Daisy is won over by a pearl necklace, Myrtle overcrowds her apartment with “tapestries furniture” and Cecilia “switches dresses three times before going down to dinner”. However this also presents them as materialistic in three different ways. Daisy is a woman in the 1920’s who has been given more rights; however she doesn't know what to do with them. She still feels as if she needs protection, and looking after, which is why she chose Tom over Jay Gatsby. Myrtle just wants affection. She looks for love in objects because she wants to feel that love. This is why she is seen to be so happy when Tom gets her a dog – which is nothing compared to daisy’s pearls, however is a symbol of a rich man’s love to her. Cecilia put her money into her clothes because her appearance is everything. She goes to college and comes back to amount to nothing, moping and smoking round the house. And so she chooses her......

Daisy Miller

...To begin with, “Daisy Miller” is a short novella where the main character Daisy miller whose real name is Annie P. Miller refuses to follow the strict and severe Europeanpropriety laws that directbehavior, especially relations between young andunmarried ladies with gentleman like Mr. Wnterbourne or Mr. Giovanelli .She becomes the topic of discussion and raises many eyebrows among the noble society of the countries she lives in. The novella is in the genre of comedy and tragedy of manners.Among all the symbols of the story the ones that impressed me a lot where the chosen locations for the actions to take place, the combinations of old and new and also the name selection of the main characterThe locations of the novel were not chosen advisedly though it is not mentioned in the novella. The author wants to bring out the argument that new is not always perceived. The author of “Daisy Miller” Henry James wants to remind us of romantic stories that happened in the locations and also the history of the old countries and buildings where the actions of the novella take place, but he does it implicitly. For example, the places where Miss Miller and her family lived in: Rome and Geneve, the coliseum where Daisy’s encounter with Mr. Winterbourne takes place. All these places contain a huge history and different love stories which are somehow thematically and secretly connected to “Daisy Miller”. I would like to mention also the name selection for the main character Daisy Miller whose......

Analysis of Randolph in Daisy Miller

...Great in Meaning Throughout James' “Daisy Miller: A Study” I have neither given nor received help on this work, nor am I aware of any infraction of the Honor Code. ------------------------------------------------- Date: Signature: Critics of Henry James' “Daisy Miller: A Study” largely focus on main characters, such as Daisy, Winterbourne, or Mrs. Walker. In his preface to the novel, James exemplifies how Daisy defies society's objective to confine women in a rigid sphere, describing her as “... a child of nature and of freedom...” (James 267). In her critic, Dunbar demonstrates how James' international theme comes in effect as Mrs. Walker turns her back to Daisy, declaring, “Mrs. Walker, whose cutting of Daisy seals the young girl's social doom, is in the revision given symbolic value by references to her as ʻthe voice of civilized societyʼ...” (Dunbar, 314). In another critic, Kennedy elucidates Winterbourne's willingness to classify Daisy, stating, “But why is Winterbourne so obsessively determined to categorize Daisy in the first place when his interest clearly extends beyond what would be aroused by an anomaly in his mental filing cabinet?” (Kennedy). Those critics however, omit Randolph Miller, whose meaning in the novel cannot be overlooked. Introduced early in the novel, Randolph Miller's meaning for the whole plot seems limited. However, him requesting lumps of sugar enables Winterbourne to introduce himself to Daisy Miller. Furthermore, Winterbourne......

Driving Miss Daisy

...Ms. Daisy Is A Good Driver Tony Calloway Saint Joseph College of Maine Ms. Daisy Is A Good Driver As the baby boomers head toward senescence, they will account for a growing percentage of the population, and thus an increasing proportion of people on the road (Katherine Mikel 2008). Driving helps older people stay independent and mobile. And family members of these elderly parents and relatives usually feel too pushy and domineering to insist that their loved one is no longer able to remain independent. However, some older drivers do recognize their personal and civic duty to be responsible and take precautions when getting behind the wheel, such as only driving during daylight hours, taking well-known roads, and traveling a safe distance behind other drivers. In 2012, there were almost 36 million licensed drivers ages 65 and older in the United States. Per mile traveled, fatal crash rates increase noticeably starting at age’s 70‒74 and are highest among drivers age 85 and older. These octogenarians have a higher collision rate per mile traveled of any age groups except for teens, and their rate of fatal collisions per mile traveled is the highest of all drivers. The risk of injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash increases with age. An average of 586 older adults is injured every day in crashes. In 2012, more than 5,560 older adults were killed, and more than 214,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes. That amounts to 15 older adults killed and......

Political Ads

...Jonah Pohl Assignment One: Emotional Impact of Using Kids in Campaign Ads 1964: Lyndon B. Johnson “Daisy” and “Ice Cream Cone.” 1. Both of these commercials are communicating the message that if voted President, Barry Goldwater, would begin testing nuclear weapons and may even lead the United States to a nuclear war. The commercials then urge citizens to vote for Johnson to avoid this calamity. 2. Children are included in these commercials to cause the viewers to feel more emotion about what the ads are saying. In these ads it is suggested that if Goldwater is elected, the United States could be lead to nuclear destruction. When this is paired with the images of children, the viewers feel that they must vote against Goldwater to ensure the safety of the children of America. 3. I believe these ads are far more effective for older people than for younger audiences. This is because older people, and especially parents, would feel more emotion after watching these ads and learning that voting against Johnson might put their children in danger. As a young person, I didn't find these commercials as effective as I might have if I were older. 1976: Gerald Ford “Children/Achievements.” 1. The purpose of this commercial was to inform viewers of the progress that Gerald Ford had made as President so far, and that he should be the man to continue to lead America forward. 2.

Daisy Miller

...to the Character of Daisy Miller Daisy Miller is a novella written by Henry James where the story focuses on a young girl Daisy, who is full of life and innocent at the same time. This one particular aspect of the novella that focuses on this young girl has left the novella to analyze from a feminist point of view. Therefore we can say that Daisy Miller focuses on the nature of women, and Henry James portrayed the character of Daisy in order to do that. Daisy is introduced to Europe, and she deals and copes up with the society as well as she lives on her freewill. Unfortunately the consequence of her freewill does not prove to be a very good one. Perhaps this is how Henry wanted to depict the societal position of women. The response for this character Daisy can have a lot of dimensions. Many could easily call Daisy a flirt, many could be confused just like Winterbourne, and many could also support her freewill. Here we should also keep in our mind that although the narrator of the story is unreliable, unnamed and omniscient, yet every detail about Daisy as well as every other character is told from the point of view of Winterbourne. Many readers may get influenced by the comments that Winterbourne and Mrs. Costello makes regarding Daisy and her family. Here we should understand that Winterbourne himself is a confused person, and till the end of the story he is not able to understand what Daisy actually is. On the other hand Mrs. Costello’s remarks on Daisy and her nouveau......
