What a Beautiful Mind First the story begins in Princeton University at September 1947. John Nash and his colleagues are being introduced to the university. After the introduction the students meet outside for formal party in the school. This is where John first meets Martin Hasson his rival during the film. Martin and John both got to Princeton through the same scholarship. John Nash eventually makes it to his dorm room and eventually meets his roommate Charles Herman. John Nash was very passionate on trying to find a dynamic. John Nash was using a lot of time finding equations and Charles his roommate was frustrated on him not breaking the ice and took him drinking up at the roof where they spoke. The next day John Nash was studying how birds reacted and he tries to calculate their behavior. He then runs into Martin which challenges him on a game. Martian wins the game and talks down to John. Later on John was still stuck on trying to have an original Idea (Find Dynamic), Charles told him to go to the bar to eat some pizza and drink some beer. They went to the bar and you see John Nash playing pool. Martian comes to the bar and looks at his friends that’s calling him at the bar. Martians friend told him that this girl wanted Nash. Martian tells Nash and then Nash left to talk to her. He failed completely on trying to pursue her because he told her he just wanted to sleep with her. John Nash later speaks with a professor on finding an original idea he lets the professor know he needs more time. The Professor lets him know that he is not achieving anything. John gets depressed and angry about his in achievement. John Nash in frustration attacks his roommate Charles. Charles tells Nash that the people are the problem not him and throws his desk out the window. John later is working on an original Idea at the bar. Martian, John, and their collogues were sitting at a table when a group of women came in and they all see a beautiful blonde. Martian spoke to the guys about the blonde and says remember Adam Smith the man with modern economics everyone to themselves. John says Adam need revision and explain how everyone should not just lookout for themselves but they should lookout for themselves for the group and starts to form an original idea. John Nash eventually figures out an equation that changes the whole view of modern economics. John Nash and his collogues celebrate at the bar. Martian his rival comes to the bar and has a drink with Nash on his success.

John Nash at 1953 ended up working at the pentagon during the cold war against the Soviet Union. He meets soldiers that inform him on the task he was going to do. The soldiers explained that he was going to decode a certain signal from Moscow. John Nash decoded the transmission and found out it was coordinates in America. He asked the solders what the codes were, but they did not want to reveal to him what the codes meant. He started seeing a man with a hat and called him big brother. The man was secret agent from the pentagon. After he return to Princeton he found out he had to teach a class. There was a woman in the class that caught his attention fixing the problem of construction worker working while class began. He later meets with agent again and he wanted to hire him to be code breaker for the agency. The agent was named William Partier. William takes him to a secret government building and explains how he needs him to be codebreaker to stop the Soviet Union from bombing the United States. They give him an invisible chip so he can decode magazines and leave it for the agency. The women from the classroom comes to his office at Princeton and asks him out to dinner. The woman’s name is Alisha Lennard and John takes her to formal party. He later sees stars with her and points out any shape she wanted and shows what stars create that shape. He later continues on codebreaking the magazines and leaves them in the location William the agents asked him to leave them. John was sitting in the campus when a little girl named Marcy came to talk to him and ends up knowing that Marcy was his roommate’s niece. He starts talking to Charles about his girlfriend and his future.

John Nash eventually ends up marrying Alisha while he is still doing his work for the agency. He was leaving some confidential data at the area when William tells John to get in the car because they were being followed. They ended up being in a shootout but eventually got away. John Nash was traumatized but could not talk to his wife about it because it was top secret. John later gets visited by William and speaks about not being able to do it anymore. William threatens John which made him very paranoid because he was scared Alisha and his future baby were going to get hurt. John still in paranoia ends up seeing Charles and Marcy before he does a presentation on his equation. John sees a couple of men in black suits walking towards and runs with panic. A couple of men start chasing him and psychiatrist named Rosen says he wants to talk to him. John swings at him. John tries to escape but gets restrained and sent to the mental hospital.
Rosen starts talking to him and John tries to escape and sees Charles sitting down. Rosen then says, “There is no one there.” Rosen calls someone and they take him away. Rosen later speaks to Alisha his wife and tells her John has Schizophrenia. Rosen explains that John started hallucinating right when he went to Princeton and he imagine Charles his best friend. Alisha in shock did not believe him because he spoke so highly of Charles. Later Alisha was notified by Rosen that John lived by himself at Princeton and had no roommates. Rosen then explained he was hallucinating William and asked her if she can look at his work. Alisha in anger of the situation goes to his office at Princeton to see what he was working on. John’s colleagues insisted to Alisha that his work was top secret and to stop. Alisha in fury slaps a man and opens the doors to her husband’s office. Alisha sees all the nonsense John was working on. Then the colleagues inform her that Nash would also leave envelopes at an abandon house.
Alisha came to mental institution and talks to John. John starts telling her all the secret. Alisha eventually got frustrated and showed him the envelope and explained that what he was seeing was not real. John leaves with anger and still tries to prove he is telling the truth. John eventually starts getting insulin shots to induce seizures as treatment for his schizophrenia. Alisha speaks with John’s colleagues and was asked how she was doing. She explains how she feels. She says she feels obligated to help and feels guilty of thinking of leaving. They both meet John at her house. John was explaining to his colleague that he was having trouble doing math because of all the medication he was taking.

The story then continues at the bedroom were Alisha was pushing to sleep with John. John pushes her off and Alisha gets frustrated with him. Alisha asks John, “Are the medication the problem.” John, just nods his head in agree meant and Alisha rushes to the bathroom in anger. Alisha drinks some water to calm herself down and then lets it all out in the bathroom. She throws the glass at the mirror, then starts to cry to the frustrations of her life.
John stops taking the medication and regained his hallucinations again. He sees a man running to the woods and John runs to catch him. He finds out that it was William Partier and was surrounded with military pointing at John. John screams out, “You’re not real, You’re not real.” William convinces John Nash that he was real again and continues to work with William, his hallucination. John continues in stopping his medication. John and Alisha were preparing for a storm, so Alisha went to grab thee clothes outside. While John is showering the baby. This is where Alisha finds the shed John started doing work again at and she rushes back to the house for the baby. John was hallucinating again and perceived that Charles was watching the baby when the baby was in the bath. Alisha runs and grabs him before the baby drowns and call Dr. Rosen. John then was being pushed by his hallucination to stop Alisha from calling Dr. Rosen. John then perceived that William was going to attack her and slings to save her put pushes her instead. In panic Alisha runs with baby to get away from John. John then stops her and lets her know he realizes he is hallucinating because Marcy the little girl never ages.
Rosen comes to the house to talk to John again, to put him in the mental institution again. John denies going back and was passionate in being able to control himself. Rosen knew John did not want to go back and gave the responsibility to Alisha. Alisha sends Rosen off and they both try to fight the schizophrenia together.
John Nash two months later goes back to Princeton and speaks with his old rival Martian. John went to ask Martian if he can come and do his work at Princeton. Martian agrees and john starts working at Princeton. John came to the library and started to panic. John creates a huge scene and does not think he can handle it anymore. Alisha comforts John and he continues to fight his Schizophrenia. He starts to ignore his hallucinations and continue on his work.
John Nash was still working by 1978 and starts speaking to a student at Princeton and starts teaching at the library. John later wanted to become a professor and asks Martian for class. Marian lets him know that he would ask the school board and he would teach at spring.
John starts teaching classes at 1994 and was visited by a man named Thomas King. Thomas told John that he was going to be nominated for noble prize. They got get tea to talk about if John was capable to get the noble prize. Thomas was trying to see if john was not going to act up at noble prize. John was passed the pens which is a prestige’s honor for a great achievement. John gets the noble prize and gives a beautiful speech to the audience and his wife.

The film in my opinion was really good for it had many twists and turns through it all. It showed the way schizophrenic people had to deal with certain situation. The way perceived the world was false and anybody would believe what their eyes are showing them. It explained the treatment these people have to go through. The insulin shock and a variety of medication. This film also really illustrated the effects of the family members had on the whole issue. Overall this film was very good.…...

The Mind

...The mind is a tool; maybe even a weapon and it can be very deadly or dangerous to mankind. The mind has created some of the most destructive creations know to man including the nuke, or atom bomb. These are two things that have destroyed cities, houses, and even killed thousands of human lives. Then you have a superior mind such as Beethoven created amazing pieces of musical art work. Beethoven wrote most of the famous pieces we know today as a deaf man, that just tells you what a mind is capable of doing. It is amazing what the mind can do considering that they say we are only able to use so much of the brain. I’m not saying that the brain and mind is the same thing because they are not. A brain is a physical thing or something that you can hold, a mind is just something that can’t be seen with eyes. In Buddhist scriptures it is said that the human body is equal to a guest home and the mind as a guest dwelling. The mind leaves our body, when it is time for us to die, and goes to the next life. This is similar to the guest leaving the house and moving elsewhere. Well anyways back to the point Mr. Deville only 10% of our brains are used and is said that if we were able to tap the other 90% that we could read “pie” to the twenty thousandth decimal place, or even have telekinetic powers. There is even a website called lumosity.com that students from Harvard university had came up with, which includes brain training activities online that work and that help your mind skills...

Mind Mapping

...1. INTRODUCTION Mind map has been defined as an expression of ''Radiant Thinking'' which is a natural function of the human mind (Tony and Barry Buzan 993). It is powerful graphic techniques which provides a universal key to unlocking the potential of the brain. The mind map can be applied to every aspect of life where improved learning and clearer thinking will enhance human performance. It has four essential characteristics. They are the subjects of attention crystallized in a central image, the mind themes of the subject radiate from the central image as branchers, and branches comprise the key word printed on associated line. Topics of lesser importance are also represented as branches attached to higher level branches and the branches from a connected nodal structure. Mind map then can be enhanced and enriched with colors, pictures, codes and dimension to add interest, beauty and individuality. These will in turn aid creativity, memory and specially the recall of information. Tony Buzan in his book mind maps for kids (2003) said that mind maps are the tool of choice to help us to get our memory tuned. Mind maps work so well because they work with two sections of our memory, which are the imagination and association. He said that mind mapping is a special form of note-taking and planning that work with your brain to make it easier for you to remember things. We must use colors and images to help get our imagination whirring and the way we draw them with words or......

Prahalad Look around your company. Look at the high profile initiatives that have been launched recently. Look at the issues that are preoccupying senior management. Look at the criteria and benchmarks by which progress is being measured. Look at the track record of new business creation. Look into the faces of your colleagues and consider their dreams and fears. Look toward the future and regenerate success again and again in the years and decades to come. Now ask yourself: Does senior management have a clear and broadly shared understanding of how the industry may be different ten years from now? Are its headlights shining farther out than those of competitors? Is its point of view about the future clearly reflected in the company’s short term priorities? Is its point of view about the future competitively unique? Ask yourself: How influential is my company in setting the new rules of competition within its industry? Is it regularly redefining new ways of doing business building new capabilities, and setting new standards of customer satisfaction? Is it more a rule maker than a rule taker within its industry? Is it more intent on challenging the industry status quo...

Accountants that can communicate are better suited for the work environment. Employers are starting to place importance on these skills then they are technical accounting skills. This chapter focuses on how accountants should write and how it affects your work and problem solving. It is important to keep in mind that writing is essential to accountants. Accountants have to be able to read and write on an everyday basis. For example tax accountants have to write memos to describe the results that they found and at times they must write letters to the internal revenue service for their clients. Auditors for example have to write memos to file in the audit working papers that are essential to any audit. After the audit is completed auditors must be able to write a letter to management advising them on any changes that should be made. Accountants at times have the responsibility to write footnote disclosures in financial statements and at times accountants were using very technical language. This resulted in many investors being misinformed due to the fact that not ever investor is an accountant. The Securities and Exchange Commission issued a disclosure rule that stated to write these notes in “plain English.” They are seven tips that writers recommend for business writing. These seven are content, critical......

...manner of using language means to achieve the effect he desires. Deliberate choice must be distinguished from a habitual idiosyncrasy in the use of language units; every individual has his own manner and habits of using them. The speech of an. individual which is characterized by peculiarities typical of that particular individual is called an idiоleсt. The idiolect should be distinguished from what we call individual style, inasmuch as the word 'style' presupposes a deliberate choice. When Buffon coined his famous saying which, due to its epigrammatical form, became a by-word all over the world, he had in mind the idiolect, i.e. those qualities of speech which are inherent and which reveal a man's breeding, education, social standing, etc. All these factors are, however, undoubtedly interwoven with individual style. A man's breeding and education will always affect his turn of mind and therefore will naturally be revealed in his speech and writing. But a writer with a genuine individual style will as much as possible avoid those language peculiarities which point to his breeding and education in order to leave room for that deliberate choice of language means which will secure the effect sought. It follows then that the individual style of a writer is marked by its uniqueness. It can be recognized by the specific and peculiar combination of language media and stylistic devices which in their Interaction present a certain system. This system derives its origin from the......

...about the artificial appearance of food rather than how they occur naturally. To illustrate this, Suzuki provides an interesting short story about a television producer and his companion’s firsthand experience on how fruit and vegetables are grown. This short story reiterates that some individuals have no background knowledge as to where food comes from. With this in mind, Suzuki asserts that “we become so accustomed to clean food presented in plastic packages that we no longer think about where it comes from.” (308) In other words, this demonstrates that consumers are so focused on the perfectly sealed package that they lose sight of where food production originates from. He continues by saying that “organic grown food are treated and viewed differently compared to food that has added additives.”(308) Ironically, he ties the idea that “human control and management is considered normal due to labeling certain foods as organic.” (308) Next, he provide a clear example of how intolerant society has become to pesticides and hormone products despite possibility of damaging the physical environment. (308-309) In summary, Suzuki restates that society has changed drastically and consumers are paying a huge price because they can no longer relate to the importance of how food and land are interconnected....

...Summary and response essay Subway’s slogan and advertisements suggest to eat their fresh food. However, what the advertisements don't say is if the food is even fresh or healthy, which we just tend to predict it is. Therefore, Subway uses propaganda in order to lure people to eat their so called "fresh food”. Indeed, propaganda is widely used by various companies in order to sell their products with different brainwashing techniques. In the essay, "Propaganda Techniques in Today’s Advertising” by Anna Mcclintock suggests that propaganda influences people’s thoughts over a subject by using different propaganda techniques, I believe that those techniques work and do change people’s opinion over a subject. In fact, propaganda can be found on advertisements all around the world, like in magazines, commercials, and newspapers. The truth about propaganda is that it was designed to influence people’s opinion towards a certain point of view or a specific subject or product. Thus, propaganda uses seven different techniques in order to lure people towards the subject or product. For instance, one of the techniques is Name Calling, in which one uses negative or offensive names against a subject or product in the process changing someone’s opinion about it. In contrast, the Glittering Generalities technique uses attractive and appealing words or phrases in order to influence positive emotions towards the product a company is selling. Another technique is Transfer, which a company......

During this weeks reading and research in class I found it profoundly difficult to completely comprehend the fiscal demands part of correctional institutions as my concentration is on human services not finance. However, keeping fiscal budget demand in mind when implementing policy can be important as the world does revolve around money. Without proper budgeting the correctional institution would not have any programs for inmate’s to get help or education. The most important thing to remember is the safety of the prison staff must come first when implementing policy change. Furthermore the development of technology use like RFID tag to track inmate sin prison can eliminate investigation time and save money in the long run. The only issue seems to be is the initial cost of the devices outweighs the money saving. Inmates however will most likely tell the truth knowing they are being tracked it is almost like having a good working camera sin every area of the prions without the constant monitoring or mess-ups of film. Was there anything that you've already taken and applied in your workplace? Working security requires the use of some of the latest technological advancements.

Mind and Body

...The Mind and Body Debate LaSonya Jenkins PHL 443 June 16, 2011 Dr. Dean Dowling The Mind and Body Debate Is the mind independent of the body? The relationship between the mind and body has been a stimulating argument for philosophers for many years. Some believe that the mind and body is separate entities and others believe that the mind and body are one and are dependent upon each other. The following dialogue will present the position of René Descartes and John Searle regarding the mind and body debate. Descartes: It is certainly obvious that the mind and body are two distinctly different entities. The body has physical properties whereas the mind is nonphysical. John: With all due respect Mr. Descartes, I can’t say that I fully agree with your proclamation. However, I would say that the mind is a biological state of the mental that can cause or be caused by physical changes to the body. I feel like you do not have sufficient justification of the relationship of the body and mind (Searle, 2004). Descartes: Well young man, let me explain a few things that will support my premise in a substantial way that may indeed change your position. First of all, the mind can exist without the present of the body. You see John; the existence of my body is dubitable whereas my mind is not. Therefore my mind does not consist of the same properties of my body. This is a clear distinction that my mind is separate from my body. John:......
