Research Proposal1.510 Words / ~6 pages FCS Miami 2 Mrs. Collazo AP English 11 18 February 2014 Breaking Bad’s Impact on Society Television has had a tremendous impact on the entire world, whether it is positive or negative. From dramas, to sitcoms, to even reality shows, they all seem to affect different places. The hit drama Breaking Bad has had a monumental impact on not only the city of Albuquerque where it was filmed, but the entire world. It centers on Walter White, a brilliant, over-qualifie­d chemistry teacher who turns to making crystal meth in order to support his family after being diagnosed with lung cancer. Although on certain occasions, it may seem that this impact has been a negative one, it has surprisingly been seemingly positive. For example, Breaking Bad has influenced some to act in outlandish, bewildering ways. There have been several murders and attempted…[show more]

Protocol811 Words / ~2 pages Werner von Siemens Gymnasium München English W- Seminar Research log (11/1) 1/11/2015 In my seminar paper I will be talking about the National Rifle Associations influence on American politics and culture. Over the past few years many shootings have occured all over the Unites States of America and therefore many discussions and controversy have risen up. Despite of people being victims of mass shootings over and over again, gun advocates still exist with one of the biggest gun rights organizaion being the NRA. Whenever shootings happen the NRA is always there to whitewash guns. Even if there is just a small outcry for gun control, the NRA immediately stands on the opposing side, arguing that gun control legislation violates the 2nd Amendment, which specifically forbids the infringement by the federal government of the peoples right to keep and bear arms. But why…[show more]

Exam thesis29.299 Words / ~121 pages Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München - LMU Figure 24: Relative number of mentions (in %) of the strategy of IFIDs in Australian and American English (December 2008). At first glance, it seems that only marginal differences are observable. Yet, some interesting results became visible. Generally, American English native speakers made use of less IFIDs than Australians across all situations, as is clearly illustrated by the chart. The case of S3 (Manager), in which invariably all respondents from both target groups explicitly apologized, was surprising in light of the fact that the situation was characterized by a higher social status of the offending person. Nevertheless, it seemed to call for an explicit apology among all participants of the study. The results found in S1 (Professor), in which Australian English speakers showed a significantly higher employment…[show more]
