The Great Gatsby boasts a popular anachronistic music score. The film features songs that were constructed specifically for the film and pre-existing songs. The movie was underscored by The Bryan Ferry Orchestra who typically play retro-jazz music. Much of the music in the film is a fusion of jazz and hip-hop. The hip-hop music in the film is by popular artists that are still creating music today like Kanye West, Jay - Z, Beyoncé, and others. The music of the score is different than a lot of other film scores. The music does not confine itself to either jazz or hip-hop, which adds to the film's diegesis. By combining 1920s and modern elements both visually and sonically the film captivates the modern audience while also showcasing important aspects of the 1920s.

Directed by Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby (2013) tells the story of Nick Carraway, (Tobey Maguire) a man who moved to New York to get his shot at the booming stock market in the 1920s, but whose life is turned upside down when he gets dragged into the lives of the extremely wealthy. Nick must make many decisions that conflict with his morals, as he teeters between the love life of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). This story is narrated by Carraway in flashback as he talks to his psychiatrist about the time that he spent with the rich. In this paper, I discuss how the features of the anachronistic score of the film are used to portray a realistic look at the culture and values of the 1920s, while also showcasing the energy that was behind such a “roaring” time.
Computers are extremely new in the grand scheme of humankind, but their invention has completely changed the world. In 2015, it was found that more than 86 percent of Americans had a computer in their home ( /////) and this number continues to grow. Access to computers has changed education, the medical field, and the way that people socialize.
Throughout history, education has been something that many people did not have access to. This is still true today, but computers have decreased the number of people without access to an education. Many colleges now offer online classes, and some even offer online degrees. This allows people who cannot go to physical classes to still grow their knowledge. In addition to being able to access an education, they also allow students to gain knowledge at the tips of their fingers. With a quick internet search, students are able to access a huge database of information. This information can further be used in papers, experiments, and projects. Quick access to information like this is also important to others besides students, like people in the medical field.
The 1960s were a time in which the surgical practice of organ transplantation advanced. Organ transplants existed before the 1960s but the technology was not as developed. In 1961 a patient receiving a renal transplant was given immunosuppressant drugs. Although this patient did not live very long after the transplant it still helped the doctors and researchers in figuring out how to reverse the rejection process of organs. The importance of immunosuppressants in transplants became clear during the 1960s. The use of immunosuppressants was a very important advancement because it allowed people to live longer and have a higher quality of life with their new transplants. Immunosuppressants are still used today to keep people healthy after receiving a transplant.
The symbols created by Eliot show that Prufrock is affected by his immutability. The eternal Footman is a symbol which may represent the grim reaper. Prufrock says that “[he has] seen the moment of [his] greatness flicker, / and [he has] seen the eternal Footman hold [his] coat, and snicker, / and in short, [he] was afraid” (Eliot). Prufrock is afraid because he is not ready to die. The life that Prufrock has lived thus far has not been satisfying and that his due to his chronic procrastination. Instead of partaking in things that would make him happy, he instead thinks about them and continues on in his old ways. People that have a clear conscious and enjoyed the ways that their days were spent know that death is just an inevitable symptom of life. Eliot uses dark symbols to show that Prufrock is choosing his own dark and pathetic life through procrastination and his inability to change and grow as a person.
To begin our experiment, we had to isolate the chloroplasts. First, we took the spinach leaves and ground them in a mixture of 20 mL of grinding buffer and a pinch of sand. Once thoroughly ground we used cheesecloth to sift the liquid from the mixture into a beaker. This liquid then went into tube A. Tube A was then placed in the centrifuge for 3 minutes at 200 X G. Next the supernatant from this was put into tube B which was then placed into the centrifuge for 10 minutes at 1000 X G. This formed a hard pellet that containing thylakoids which is what we used for the experiment. We then resuspended the pellet in 5.5 mL of grinding buffer. Once suspended the solution was then placed into another beaker, so we could use it in the next part of the experiment.
One of the most notable parts of a spider's body is its legs. After observation of the spider it is noticed that it acts very still when it is being left alone. A slight tap on the desk causes the spider to become more lively. As it starts to move around the cup it is observed that the spider's walking pattern seems off. The spider seems to favor walking on its left side. Upon further investigation it is noticed that the spider has an injury. The injury is to one of the spider's legs which has fallen off. The legs of the spider are brown and about three times the length of the spider's body. They are brown in color, and broken into three segments. Between the segement closest to the spider's body and the middle segment is a joint. The joints on the spider's legs are almost black and very small in size. The joints are the highest points of the spider when it is resting flat on the surface of the container. As the spider becomes more active it crawls to the top of the container where it draws its legs inward and hangs on by only one part of its body. The legs of a spider are very important for movement and survivial and often is what makes it distinguishable as a spider.
Sat inside the cup is a spider. The spider has a gray body which is about 1/3 the length of one leg. The spider has a brown head and legs. It acts very still as it is in a very small plastic container, A slight tap on the desk causes the spider to become more lively. As it starts to move around the cup I notice that its walking pattern seems off. The spider seems to favor walking on his left side. Upon further investigation I realize this is due to injury of one if the spider's legs. The leg of the spider must've fallen off during transportaion. Each leg of the spider is made up of three segments. Between the segment closest to the body and the middle segement is a joint. These joints are the highest part of the spider when sitting flat on the lid. The joints are also the second darkest part of the spider after it's head. As the spider crawls to the top of the plastic cup it brings all of it legs towards the center of it's body and looks as if it is hanging by only one single point.
