    Disney from its main competition: Nickelodeon (Pomerantz 44). After speaking with children and families who revealed they wanted to spend more time together, they decided Disney would not only continue to segment its day to cater to different ages—especially tweens—but allow for more of the tween programming to still be appealing to adults as well so families could watch together throughout the day (Selznick 124, Sterngold N.P.). Sweeney helped spearhead original shows like Lizzie McGuire to accomplish this goal and further overcome the network’s dilemma regarding competition from other networks like Nickelodeon who had been successfully focusing on girls with programs like The Secret World of Alex Mack (1994-1998) and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo (1996-1999) (Boorstein 112). Lizzie McGuire was focused on a family, but the series, a mix of live-action and animation to capture kids young and old, centered on a tween girl and ended up capturing the tween girl demo more than it did entire families. The “Lizzie McGuire following” consisted of 2.3 million viewers (Huff, 2002, 41) in…

    I would be lying to you all if I said that I have always wanted to travel to China let alone spend a semester there. Entering college at Wheaton (MA) two and a half years ago I dreamed of learning a romance language like Italian in hopes of traveling to Europe my junior year to have a picture-perfect semester. After watching the Lizzie McGuire movie a million times, anything seemed possible. If I learned Italian and went to Italy, maybe I could be riding around Rome on Moped with a cute pop star…

    Kids who kill their parents. Fun fact! Lizzie Borden was the only person in the house at the time of the murders. And Abby and Andrew were killed within 90 minutes of each other. Considering the evidence, trial, and a possible motive, it looks as if Lizzie Borden took the life of her own parents. There is far too much evidence against Lizzie to not convict her, even after all these years. For example, the evidence against Lizzie is extremely fascinating and very interesting. Lizzie was the only…

    I don’t think that Lizzie Borden murdered her father and stepmother because she’s not brave enough and her family was really good people. The family attended the Congregationalist church an institution in which Lizzie was particularly involved. Lizzies father Andrew and his wife had a normal life and they went to work every day and came back home did the same thing every morning. The family seems like they are good and are innocent people Lizzie didn’t do it cause she would be scared. Abby and…
