  • Being A Military Child Essay

    the House Armed Service Subcommittee held a hearing on the recent studies on the effects of deployment on military children. The House Subcommittee saw two witnesses, Dr. Anita Chandra, a Behavioral Scientist with the RAND Corporation, and Dr. Leonard Wong, a Research Professor with Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College. Both Dr. Chandra and Dr. Wong reported findings that the remaining caregiver’s mental state was capable of affecting the child’s mental state. In other words, a child with a mother who has depression problems is more likely to have emotional and/or behavioral problems than a child with a mother who has no history of depression. When asked by chairwomen Susan Davis what she thought should be done to assist military families, Dr. Chandra stated “There has been a lot more attention on younger children, younger than 12. There are a lot of development and support programs for them. We hope this starts to identify some of the needs of older youth and teenagers so that we can look at the programs we currently have and figure out if we are aligning our programs with those needs for adolescents” (House, Committee on Armed Services, United States, Subcommittee on Military Personnel, & Congress, 2010). Dr. Wong additionally found that the number one predictor for deployment stress, all the more important than family stability, was whether or not the adolescent participated in sports. This was followed by having a strong family, and whether they felt the…

    in America, yet raised Chinese, Wong began to form her identity in the middle of this cultural clash. On one hand, Wong witnessed the promotion of individuality from American families, on the other her family taught her individuality is less important than the family as a whole.

  • The Mood For Love Analysis

    Wong Kar Wai is probably the most innovative and avant-garde director to come out of Hong Kong. As part of the second New Wave of Hong Kong cinema, Wai moved far away from the traditional, Jackie Chan and Shaw Brothers style of films, which focused on action, and explored more substantial themes, icnluding human psyche, politics and the social conditions in Hong Kong. His aesthetics are quite similar with Jean-Luc Godard and the French Wave, in general, particularly because he also took apart…

  • Chiking Express Analysis

    “Movement, change and flux are the only constants in the city.” A delightfully poignant movie revolving around urban alienation of its citizens living in Hong Kong, it is easy for its audience to get absorbed in the flurry of images created by Christopher Doyle’s shaky handheld cameras, William Chang’s fast-paced editing, and Wong Kar Wai’s signature ‘smudge-motion’ techniques in the film Chungking Express. These cinematographic images created from such, as if to vertiginously disorient its…

  • The Winter Concert Review Essay 'O Holy Night'

    never missing a beat and timing of the piano and the beginning of the flute to jump in was great. Tristesse by Frederic Chopin is a sadistic piece of music which also avails frustration of Chopin of not being in her native country. What stuck out most for me of the Tristesse was the haunting sort of melody that was played in the middle piece which expressed Chopin’s feelings of anger and uselessness to his country. After Tristesse, the performers put up a very famous piece of work of Wolfgang…
