  • Second Language Sequence

    Learning a second language is a complex process that exceeds the acquisition of its structure and vocabulary. One of the major components of mastering a new language requires learners to become familiar and sensitive to the preference in language use by native speakers of certain sequences of words over others (Wray, 2000). It is the mastery of these word sequences that distinguishes novice from proficient L2 learners. Yet, there is still little agreement across studies on the number of words inhabit each sequence that worthy to define, the identification criteria, what to call them and how to teach them. In other words, it is difficult to identify a word sequence as being formulaic. On the one hand, some of the sequences are idiomatic (opaque…

  • GATTACA: Movie Analysis

    The first negative aspect to the world of GATTACA would be that those chosen to be one’s partner seemed to be solely based on the other person’s genetic sequence and their “ranking.” When Irene goes to sequence Jerome’s (Vincent’s) hair and gets the sequence back, the person working at the sequencing booth tells her that Jerome’s “rating” is a 9.3 and that he is “quite the catch.” By saying this, combined with the public sequencing booths, the world of GATTACA is one that is based on genes and…

  • Children Of Nature: Does Land Have A Memory Of Its Own?

    Does land have a memory of its own? The film Children of Nature suggests that memory is strongly connected to the land on which the memory was created. Therefore, a walk on the beach combined with the sounds of waves crashing on the shore, and the feeling of wind blowing through your hair may illicit similar or random experiences that occurred years before. In this sense, experiences bleed into the land, whereby creating a pool of memories connected to a seemingly arbitrary symbol of its…

  • Mrs Fadil's Afterlife Case Study

    Kevin Tod Haug, the client VFX Supervisor, contacted Cinesite Montreal initially in (do we know the month?) to talk about ‘out of this world’ environments and ‘epic’ set extensions for Mrs Fadil’s afterlife sequence which was going to be imminently filmed in Toronto and in Oklahoma. Very quickly, we also got involved in the look development of the storm, which is a character in itself, alongside other sequences. In total, we worked on 18 different sequences split over 5 episodes (1, 2, 3, 4 and…

  • Error Free Methods

    During the week of the audit, many order selectors were observed performing tasks above and beyond those stated in the company’s documented preferred methods and those considered and allocated in the engineered labor standards resulting in inaccurate and understated performances achieved against standard. For example, observed were labeling of cases after placement to the pallet and traveling out of sequence to obtain base items of multiple cases. The specified methods and engineered standards…

  • Moonrise Kingdom Analysis

    When analysing the placement of characters in the film we must acknowledge both the physical placement of the characters in a particular shot or sequence and the placement of a character in the plot or story of the film. While similar in title, the two concepts have drastically different interpretations and uses when analyzing elements of a film. The placement of a character in a shot is the character’s specific placement in front of the camera during a shot or sequence. This concept is analysed…

  • Saul Bass: Graphic Designer

    The arm was distorted and had a series of rectangular shapes to form the arm, which bass considered to represent drug addiction. Preminger however disagreed with Bass over which animated sequence with the arm looked the best. Bass argued that “the sequence fell flat without animation” but Preminger disagreed. The official compromise was “staccato-like movements as the arm segments maneuvered through the visual progression”. After this compromise, the sequence went down as a classic in American…

  • Analysis Of HCV DNA

    Approach: The specific aim of this Phase I project is to establish the technical merit and feasibility of detection of HCV RNA using an innovative assay called TARA. The overall work principles and design of the assays are shown in Figure 1. We will use peptide nucleic acid (PNA)-based probes to investigate in detail the signaling power and the selectivity of a transfer reaction (Figure 2). PNA is a chemically and biologically stable DNA analogue that combines an increased affinity towards DNA…

  • Personal Learning Habits

    I try to use all of them to the fullest extent. My sequence learning pattern is at an use first level with a score of 30.
