The movie Inside Out showed the inner workings of a girl’s (Riley’s) mind. The writer/s packaged the movie in such a way that it would show the audience how and why a person acts in a certain manner in such an entertaining way. It used whimsical representations showing how the brain receives, processes, and lets out responses, how memories fade, and how humans develop our personalities. Expressing Riley’s consciousness are five characters, which determine her actions and thoughts: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. These five characters are embodiments of five emotions voicing the complex workings of the human brain.

It was, for me, one of the best movies Disney Pixel has ever created. There have been, however, reactions from neuroscientists regarding the metaphors or representations used in the movie. The movie according to them, though cute and entertaining, was not a neurology lesson and some important elements of the functions of the human brain were misplaced, if not missing. Hence, I am going to try and discuss the comments of some neuroscientists regarding the representations used in the movie.

First is the control panel being the center of commands. There does not seem to be a control panel similar to that of the movie in the actual human brain. The consciousness, however, does not reside on a single command center but rather distributed, with each part of the brain contributing its little bit. The nearest thing the human brain has to a command center is the frontal lobe, which allows humans to strategically plan actions and goals, and act in our own long-term interests. The emotions do not reside here. They reside somewhere deeper in the limbic system. The writer/s could have, according to a neurologist, created a multiple distributed control panel, since the functioning of the brain does not only depend on a single command system.

...were showered with incentives to give loans to anyone for exorbitant interest rates, and since nobody cared if the loans were repaid, the commission alone was all that mattered. The massive amount of liquidity in the system and the hunger for mortgages resulted them to repackaged the loans into collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), with numerous of them backed by subprime mortgages, then sold to investors. Besides, the ratings agencies such as Standard & Poors were paid to give them all AAA ratings, which caused many buyers to believe in what they were buying. However, long after the damage is done, the rating agencies acted too late to downgrade these papers. People cautioned that this would lead to catastrophe, but those that warned inside of the government were pushed aside by former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, plus academic economists who sold their opinions to corporate bidders, making them enablers of the disaster. I strongly agree to this movie director's closing admonition that strong financial industry regulation needs to be reinstated, executive compensation needs to be limited and consumers have to get protected by the government. The government should empowered to rate bonds, especially if it requires certain kinds of fund managers to possess only officially rated bonds. The respective regulatory units should have started new rules and policies to oversee CDOs, CDS, leverage aspect of financial firms and......

Out Out

...A young man is cutting firewood with a buzz saw in New England. Near the end of the day, the boy’s sister announces that it is time for dinner and, out of excitement, the boy accidentally cuts his hand with the saw. He begs his sister not to allow the doctor to amputate the hand but inwardly realizes that he has already lost too much blood to survive. The boy dies while under anesthesia, and everyone goes back to work. Analysis Frost uses the method of personification to great effect in this poem. The buzz saw, though technically an inanimate object, is described as a cognizant being, aggressively snarling and rattling as it does its work. When the sister makes the dinner announcement, the saw demonstrates that it has a mind of its own by “leaping” out of the boy’s hand in its excitement. Frost refuses to lay blame for the injury on the boy, who is still a “child at heart.” In addition to blaming the saw, Frost blames the adults at the scene for not intervening and telling the boy to “call it a day” before the accident occurred. Had the boy received an early excuse from the workday, he would have avoided cutting off his hand and would have been saved from death. Moreover, a mere half-hour break from his job would have allowed the boy to regain part of his childhood, if only for a moment. Frost’s emphasis on the boy’s passivity and innocence in this situation is particularly significant in the context of the time period. After moving to England with his family,......

Gylfi Zoega Professor of Economics at the University of Iceland said that, “A fine location for families to live happily.” In 2000, Iceland’s government began a policy of deregulation. This set up the basis for the banks to upload debts when the foreign companies were accumulated. As the crisis unfolded itself the banks became unable to refinance their debts. The financial crisis of Iceland was the largest suffered by any country in the economic history. It was a political crisis collapse of all the three major privately owned commercial banks, with their difficulties in the refinancing their short term debt and run on deposits.

Inside Intel Inside

...Case 4 Inside Intel Inside What was the original motivation behind Intel’s decision to launch the Intel Inside branding campaign? What factors have accounted for the success of the campaign? From a consumer perspective, how does the Intel inside logo affect your PC buying decisions? Intel was a market leader in PC Microprocessor industry. Due to evolving new technology and intensifying competition, sustaining technological lead was of utmost priority in 1990 for Intel. They had threats from growing powers like AIM (Apple, IBM and Motorola) tie ups in 1991. To counter this competition, Intel doubling up their R&D. There were simultaneous development of products of 2 generations going on. The other competitors could not catch up with Intel’s speed of development of new products. In 1997, Intel encountered loss of market in < $1000 PC market. This segment was fast growing. AMD was a major player and gained market share in this segment. Intel did not want to lower their price because this would affect their brand equity as well as reduce their bottom lines. So they countered by introducing another product that they positioned in entry level segment. This kind of product differentiation allowed them to gain leadership in that market without diluting their brand image. They also lowered price of their older product to compete directly with AMD. Their product 286 was a big success in the market. But 386 processor sales did not pick up even 3 years after launch. This......

Inside Out

...Essay - Inside Out Inside Out is a short film from 1999 made by Tom and Charles Guard, also known as The Guard Brothers. This short film shows how opposites attract, but it also shows how a big chaotic city can make love difficult. In Inside Out the male character and the female character never really connect, they never really talk or touch each other. They never meet, because they are separated by the fashion shop's window. The window is like a barrier. Still they kind of have an instant "connection", like eye contact. When the man sees the woman he lights up, becomes energetic and he seeks her attention, he tries to act funny. The complete opposite of what he was before, a frustrated man, because no one would sign his papers, they just ignored him and walked on by. The woman is entertained by him, but she is also very shy and she tries to hide behind some mannequins. Though this could also be flirting, because she is alternately hiding, coming out, hiding again etc. This shows their differences. Two opposites meet and attract. At the end of the short film it shows that the attraction is not strong enough. The city forces them to go their separate ways. A city which is very chaotic and not to mention, big. The cinematic techniques amplify the chaos in the city, for example: There is a lot of short takes and close ups on peoples feet which shows that the citizens are always on the move. There is also hand-held camera and this certainly gives the idea of action and......

Out, Out-

...How does Frost create a sense of horror in his poem ‘Out, Out-‘ Frosts creates a sense of horror in his poem ‘Out, Out-‘through his use of repetition and the use of caesura and figurative speech. Frost concentrates also on the apparent innocence and passivity of the boy. "Out, Out-" is a poem by American poet Robert Frost, published in 1916. It tells the story of a young boy who dies after his hand is severed by a "saw”. This poem was apparently based on a true story. The title ‘Out, Out-‘is an allusion to William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth ‘out, out-brief candle’, it refers to how unpredictable and fragile life is like a candle is being blown out. To begin, Personification is used in line 1 personification is used to make the buzz saw more horrifying. ‘The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard’. This creates an image of a monster, something dangerous and has a mind of its own The use of personification continues into line 8’ as it ran or had to bear a load’ this shows the reader how destructive this buzz saw is and how effortless it is at it, this also extends the metaphor. Also in line 16 ‘leaped out at the boy’s hand, or seemed to leap-’the saw is still personified and therefore adds horror to this line, the use of the word ‘at’ is emphasized here, like a vicious creature the buzz saw leaped out at the boy’s hand, making it seem like the boy lost all control and is helpless. Also the use of caesura is particularly effective in this part of the poem as it adds......

Inside and Out

...My ecological footprint is 6.1. 43% of my footprint was used for food. I eat a lot of meats and processed food mainly because I’m a college student and I can’t afford to eat like I need too. 33% percent of my footprint was used for services. 10% of my footprint went to mobility because I drive a lot. 9% of my footprint went to goods and 5% went to shelter. Because I’m guilty of eating a lot of processed food and meats I know that didn’t help my footprint but I recently stopped purchasing cases of water to cut down on the impact that I have on the use of water bottles and I now use a reusable sports water bottle I purchased a couple months ago, so I know that help my footprint decrease a little. When it comes to the amount of electricity I use, it’s a very large amount. I know that’s a big reason why my footprint is 6.1. These are the reasons why my footprint 6.1. To reduce my footprint the steps I need to take are: reducing the amount of processed foods and meats I eat, investing in a bicycle to cut back on my driving time and unplugging all electronics in my room. When it comes to cutting back on the amount of processed meat I consume I could instead only eat meat twice a week instead of everyday and make sure the proportions I eat are reasonably sized and not too much. I could then purchase a bicycle and instead of driving everywhere I could bike more. In order to improve my footprint these steps are necessary. We all have a social responsible to take care of our......

What are the causes that these entire gigantic firms led to major losses? This economic crisis had cost ten millions of people lost their savings, their jobs and their homes.

Iceland is such a beautiful country with fresh air, foods, efficient operations of geothermal and hydroelectric and where the economic was stable in marketing before the crisis happen.

Inside Out Movie Review

...Colegio de San Juan de Letran Niceforo Vince A. Balbedina III Midterm Requirement General Psychology Movie Reaction Write-up Disney’s Pixar’s Inside Out Born in the 21th century, I was blessed enough to grow up in the luxury that is modern animation in entertainment. I remember the first animated movie I saw was DreamWorks’ Prince of Egypt. From then on, my fascination over animation and cartoons ran like water. I was five years-old when my mother let me watch my first Pixar film which was “Toy Story”. From that moment on, Pixar never failed to fascinate me. Last Wednesday, cinemas nationwide premiered Pixar’s latest work, Inside Out. I already saw the movie trailer before I went to watch the movie itself. The movie teaser was very intriguing. In the 4 minute video, they showcased all of their classic movies and the emotions that they threw towards the audience. After the memory montage, they introduced five characters each symbolizing the five root emotions of man; Joy; shown as a yellow figure that resembles the shape of a star, Sadness; shown as a blue character that resembles the shape of a tear-drop, Anger; the red fellow in the shape of a box, Fear; the purple figure that resembles the shape of a question-mark & Disgust; shown as a green character that resembles the shape of a broccoli. The plot of the story was as simple as it was intricate. It was about the struggle of a young girl, named Riley Andersen, as her emotions meet a......

The Inside

...R. Samuel Brock English 1301.16 McKeown September 23, 2015 The Inside I have gone most of my life with just a few friends, and not a lot of dates. Recently, I’ve also done very little talking. I do not hate people. I find myself to be a great catch, and when I am comfortable, I can blabber until the cows come home. I do not know why, but recently, I’ve gone into a state of deep introversion that I am not entirely sure I will ever get out of. As a college freshman, I saw this first semester as a great opportunity to make new friends, find new hobbies, and maybe even meet a girl. But every single time I see someone I might like to talk to, I do the same thing. I sit there, and look back and forth between them and the ground. I do this, up until they, or I leave. Then once separated, I think of all the ways I could have started a conversation, and all the different places it could have gone. It doesn’t make any sense to me! Whenever I’m in a group of people, even if I have never met any of them, I feel perfectly fine. I’ll participate in conversations, and even crack jokes. Some of the best friends that I have ever made have come from a large group of random people. It’s only when I am alone, that suddenly I lock up, and become this shy, personality-less hunk of meat. Just sitting and waiting to be left alone. I work as a bagger at the H-E-B on 19th street in Waco. It takes a ton of communication amungst the workers to make sure everything goes where it......

Loving Yourself Inside and Out

...Jamie McDowell October 27, 2015 “Loving yourself inside and out” Maleeka Madison, an eleven year old, in the seventh grade was having problems with students making fun of her. Not being appealing enough to her peers with very dark skin and homemade clothes was the start of her troubles. Very smart, however, being made fun of distracted her from her work. Other’s words helped develop her insecurities and low self-esteem which made her not see anything good about herself. Often feeling alone when with people, she was isolated to herself. The detachment of her favorite person in the world, her father, was the worst of all her problems. The person who was always there, always ready to talk, and always checking up on her: Gone! Do you know who Maleeka reminds me of? She reminds me of myself. Getting called ugly by my peers, although not because of my facial features, but because of my attire and the fact my hair was never done was the start of me being a target by other students in the poor, urban middle school I went to; only having one floor and two long hallways. Always wearing two matted puffy pony tails classified me as ugly. Now don’t get me wrong I didn’t always get defensive nor did I get upset, some of things said were funny. Bullying at times could be exaggerated, although there were serious bulling situations. Nevertheless, not always a person is trying to hurt you by telling you what you look like or how they feel about you. However, in Main Street Middle......

Inside Job

...Inside Job The American financial industry was regulated from 1940 to 1980, followed by a long period of deregulation. At the end of the 1980s, a savings and loan crisis cost taxpayers about $124 billion. In the late 1990s, the financial sector had consolidated into a few giant firms. In March 2000, the Internet Stock Bubble burst because investment banks promoted Internet companies that they knew would fail, resulting in $5 trillion in investor losses. In the 1990s, derivatives became popular in the industry and added instability. Efforts to regulate derivatives were thwarted by the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000, backed by several key officials. In the 2000s, the industry was dominated by five investment banks (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, and Bear Stearns), two financial conglomerates (Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase), three securitized insurance companies (AIG, MBIA, AMBAC) and the three rating agencies (Moody’s, Standard & Poor's, Fitch). Investment banks bundled mortgages with other loans and debts into collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), which they sold to investors. Rating agencies gave many CDOs AAA ratings. Subprime loans led to predatory lending. Many home owners were given loans they could never repay. During the housing boom, the ratio of money borrowed by an investment bank versus the bank's own assets reached unprecedented levels. The credit default swap (CDS), was akin to an insurance policy. Speculators could buy...

Childhood Obesity: Educating Inside and Out

...Zachery Yates English 103 Dr. Stephen Clifford 10 March 2011 Educating a Child Inside and Out “Just say NO!” This is an exclamation that we begin teaching our children in an attempt to keep them safe from harm. “Say no to drugs!” “Say no to strangers!” Our attempts in protecting children from any of the evils of the world usually fall back to having them, “Just say NO!” But, how does this protect them from the pitfalls and dangers of childhood obesity? How can we teach them to say “no” to unhealthy food or habits that are instilled upon them from their school meals, education or classmates’ influences? How can we protect their self-esteem from being damaged from childhood teasing? How can we protect them from the onset of adult disabilities while at an adolescent age? The value of an education has always been deemed as “priceless” but our current education system is allowing one of the key components of a healthy life, inside and out, to be overlooked. The missing piece in our children’s education system is the emphasis being placed on physical fitness. Today’s children are required to proficiently pass certain benchmarks in the areas of Reading, Writing and Math. But, these components are not enough to protect our children and educate our children for the eventual road to adulthood. Physical fitness needs to be recognized as one of the essential areas of childhood growth and education. It must be treated with as much importance as the current mental benchmarks of......
