How “The Walking Dead” Teaches Us About Doomsday

Posted by on Aug 12, 2016 in Movies |

Preparing for Doomsday is something that people have done since the beginning of time. However, in recent times it has come more to the forefront as different television shows have showcased the preparation work that is being done. The problem is some people are not sure how television shows like the Walking Dead are teaching them about preparing for Doomsday and they think it is nothing more than entertainment. By knowing how this helps educate people, it will be easy for people to feel good about the shows and know exactly what the show is doing.

DoomsdayThe primary thing the show is going to provide people is a glimpse into how life can be after all that is known today has been swept away. Now this does not mean that everything will be gone because some of the houses and other items are going to last, but this does not mean that everything is going to last. For example, communications can fall apart, and this often leads to a widespread panic among people. So people need to make sure they know about the fact this is giving the viewers a glimpse of what life can look like.

Learning the elements of what people will need to have available to them if the Doomsday were to strike at them. While most of the time people do not think about this, they need to realize this is going to be something completely different than what they were expecting. For example, people may find they need to have different clothing styles that are not bold and vibrant, but instead, will allow them to blend into the background more. This way they will not be seen and not become a target of the other survivors who may want what people have.

Coping with the long-term blackouts is something else people are going to learn how to deal with. When a Doomsday does happen, it is very unlikely that the electricity will remain on. This, in turn, means that everything that people have learned will go by the wayside as they will need to learn how to cook food on a fire, smoke their meat to preserve it, and even in getting the right way to make the light they need to have to keep everything away from them at night.

Doomsday scenarioInteraction with other humans is going to become a key component to surviving a Doomsday scenario. Yes, people may have some of their own supplies, but they generally are not going to last a long time, and they can run out. When they do run out it generally is going to lead to panic at the location. To avoid this, people will see that just like the show they are going to have to band together and form tribes, like the Native Americans, and do a job delegation to ensure that everyone can eat and everyone is taken care of properly and protected from any type of harm.

When people are looking at the different shows that are covering the Doomsday pictures they often do not think about the way this can impact them in a daily way. However, by knowing about the different ways the Walking Dead and the other shows are teaching people they will be able to survive a Doomsday scenario and not only survive, but come out thriving as one of the few to survive the challenges that were brought forth by surviving the Doomsday and knowing what they should do. Without this, people may end up like the zombies on the show.

What brings Bayer’s takeover of Monsanto

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Current Events, News |

What’s the latest in the news of pharmacy? Well, the pharmaceutical giant Bayer is trying to buy a big American company and with that will have enormous control of our lives.

imageThe American company Monsanto refused the offer of the German pharmaceutical giant Bayer. This takeover offer was worth it 62 billion dollars. As reported by the world media, Monsanto is not satisfied with the offered price of 122 dollars per share, a total of 62 billion dollars, and asks for more. Committee of Monsanto, according to the company, unanimously looks on a proposal from Bayer as incomplete and financially inadequate. The Committee, however, is open to continuing the talks to assess whether the transaction, which is in the best interest of the shareholders Monsanto, can be achieved. This was said by the source from the company. Well-known German pharmaceutical company Bayer has offered 62 billion dollars for the purchase of the controversial agrochemical company.

03_5070411By connecting these the two giants, it would be the birth of the world’s largest producer of seeds, pesticides and genetically modified crops, which could practically control the food production, with a share of as much as 28 percent of the global market. Connection with Monsanto is an excellent opportunity to create a global leader in the agricultural industry. Monsanto is the perfect choice for our agribusiness – estimated previously source from the German company. With this takeover, in which for every action Monsanto has offered 122 dollars, and with this move they have a chance to become a European pioneer in the production of controversial biotech crops. However, a potential concern, which would annually spin whopping $ 60 billion, was met with public outcry, which has been critical of the work of American company.

what-is-cancerMonsanto has been voted for the least popular company on the planet and is under constant accusations of producing GM seeds and pesticides that cause cancer. With the bad reputation that the pharmaceutical industry is enjoying, connection with the hated GMO giant is seen as a new opportunity to increase its revenue at the expense of human health. Relation with food and medicines, two key industries for the survival of mankind, is causing a great mistrust of the population, and people fear their big companies are deliberately poisoning for the sake of research and profitable products. Moreover, the former vice president of the US company once said that the company does not guarantee the safety of their food because their goal is to sell, and the task of the ministry is to control the safety of food. Monsanto, among other things, produces genetically modified soybean seeds resistant to herbicides, which completely kills other plants and growth hormone for the beef. Some researches in England have demonstrated that the both products cause disease in humans. A product that generates the most revenue in Monsanto is a synthetic herbicide glyphosate, around which is currently in Europe raised a big controversy because it is believed to cause cancer and dysfunction of the endocrine system.

Trump’s new problems

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Current Events, News |

Donald Trump is in the news again, and it’s not something he said about immigrants and Muslims. This newly founded problem is related to his business in the eighties.immigrantsheathrow

Donald Trump has been linked with the mafia boss who is also known as Fat Tony (not The Simpsons related), according to an article by Pulitzer Prize winner David Kay Johnston. Johnston claims that Salerno Construction Company built the Trump Tower and Trump Plaza building. He points out that Trump made a deal with a man who was involved in racketeering. news_trumpHowever, this is not the first time that Tramp cooperated with Fat Tony, but this text offers the most extensive documents and witnesses by which the two were linked. Instead of using what industry is – standard steel, Trump has built his building using only ready-mixed concrete. The available documents showed that Trump paid a large sum of money to the companies of Fat Tony and material used in the construction was faster, but not so safe. Of course, he made that there were no troubles with the unions so they wouldn’t raise a fuss about it. Complete agreement was made by lawyer Rob Cona, one of the close associates of Trump.

However, Donald Trump claims that he does not remember that he had made such a deal and also denies that he has anything to do with the Mafia. Based on the research and documents in which Johnston had access shows that Salerno had a hand in the building of Trump empire during the ’80s. Back then, he was at the head of the company S & A Concrete but was also associated with very influential unions.

As Johnston argues, the company started operations after the enormous payments for the construction of Trump Tower. Thus, according to the writings of Johnston, Tramp paid for the use of the problematic concrete, and trade unions, who could argue, left to the entrepreneurs. But with Cona as a lawyer, Trump had no reason to fear that the company S & C will not agree to a deal. In return, Trump got a union of peace, which means that the project will not be confronted with a set of construction or delay. Otherwise, Fat Tony in 1988 was sentenced to 70 years in prison and died in 1992. The contract to build Trump Plaza is estimated at nearly $ 8 million. In his text, Johnston stated that Trump also worked with John Cody, who was associated with the Gambino Mafia family. However, Trump denies these claims as well. While Donald Trump pursues his presidential campaign, his opponents, and media reports suggests an association between Trump and the mafia. Therefore, the CNN said that the Trump Plaza was constructed using concrete and that this is an industry that is primarily in the hands of mobsters. We will see how these, current events, will affect the presidential campaign of this new politician. But, he always looks like a man who doesn’t sweat a lot, so I believe that this will nor represent some problem for him.

Review of the movie Maggie

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Movies, News |

Earlier, or if you want to say it, back in the day, people watched movies when they went to movies or when some film was on TV. Today, we have that pleasure to watch movies in all kinds of ways. That is how the job of a film critic became even easier. If you say – what’s difficult in being a movie critic then we don’t have anything to talk about.Maggie-5

When I was a kid, there was nowhere we could hear about some movie. Maybe if we read TV guide we could find some title that is recommended for us. And look at us now, sitting here drinking Chateau de Chassilier. 9If you are not familiar with this sentence, then go and watch everything from authors of Monty Python, the real geniuses. One of the main film critics in life was the owner of the video store, which could you recommended a great comedy or a good thriller, a specialty has always been a Schwarzenegger film (as a special genre, of course). In any case, I am sorry that Schwarzenegger is not filming movies like this when I was little and visited the video store because this would be a great unknown both for me and for the owner of the video store. Schwarzenegger is here in a post-apocalyptic zombie world, starring as a sad lumberjack, and has a daughter that suffers from apathy that disease. Unlike the classic movie genre, where the bitten person for seven or eight minutes transformed into zombies, here we have the whole movie for it. Do you have figured out, it’s a metaphor for the sickness and the consequences that leave for those who are going through their final days and their loved ones? Maggie relies on the current post-Walking Dead world, which is in the movies, in addition to speeding the zombies, completely ok to stop and mourn those who are no longer with us. 

Zombie girl plays little actress from a movie called Little Miss Sunshine, who plays in some independent (semi) hit, just to remind us that she grew up and that time passes, and we all grew older. Arnold is unexpectedly great in the role of the father who cannot come to terms with the fact that it is impossible that in the final seconds to save the world, and all be happily ever after. Plus, Schwarzenegger as great in this movie when he cried and he surely made us crying watching him this movie. But not in a negative way, like we cried while we watched some of your awful movies or we cried at the end of Terminator when he sacrificed. He was actual, in this movie a good actor.

In conclusion, this is an excellent movie for the first date with a girl, who said that she likes independent movies and Walking Dead series. If you are not in a dating world, then this is a good movie if you want to assure yourself that Schwarzenegger is not a bad actor.

Review of movie High-Rise

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Movies, News |

HIGHRISEPOSTEREnglish films with dystopias are scarier than others. I guess because English films are regularly more depressed than American, with all the sadness, poor families, children who are dying and depressing music and atmosphere. Well, High-Rise falls into this category. Director Ben Wheatley, the director, known for movie titles such as Kill List and Sightseers, made his most complex film to date, but also the most confusing, because in many cases you are not sure you know what is happening in front of you. The film follows a young doctor, played by Tom Hiddleston, who is moving into a newly built skyscraper, which is a little town for itself, with a kindergarten, a supermarket, a swimming pool, gym and, most importantly, residents are divided into classes. For instance, the poorest are at the bottom while the rich people are upstairs.

 High-RiseThe middle class, where our doctor is centered, is in the middle of the building, and there is a silent hatred of the penthouse, where he lives and towards the architect of the whole project (Jeremy Irons). A similar metaphor for dummies has had movie Snowpiercer, but this is developed in a much better way. The film is based on a book of J.G. Ballard from the 70s, so the action is located in those years, although situation resembles some futuristic seventies, like in famous movie A Clockwork Orange, by Stanley Kubrick. In general, the whole film relies heavily on the atmosphere of some Kubrick’s movies. After one party of the middle class, the richer team wants to respond with the more crazy party and little by little, one crazy bizarre assembly of various events, and we got a war of classes, where everything seems like an actual war. Since the film has drawn you into the story’s nice setting, and the atmosphere of good actors and seductive look, you have to close your eyes on a few things. The most annoying situations are connected with violence, because the struggle between the classes and changing wives for food, could easily be avoided, by people simply leaving the building, but then we wouldn’t have complications in the plot. But well, it could be just me being a smartass.

1035x690-tom-1800-1402674451I watched Hiddleston for the first time, not as a superhero or a villain with tedious costume, and I was pleasantly surprised especially with his method approach to acting. Among others, there are Luke Evans, who all the time looks like a drunken Richard Burton in the movies of the 60’s, and Elizabeth Moss, while Sienna Miller once again was that pretty girl that can be easily replaced with some pretty flower.  All in all, what would Americans say – a beautiful mess of the film.

It’s an assembled cast, and it gives a new dimension to the movie. The main actor is better than the others, and that’s normal. As I said, it has that atmosphere of Kubrick’s movies, so if you are his fan, you should watch this movie. And if you are not Kubrick’s fan, well then don’t ever watch any movie. He is the legend and probably the best director ever.

Presidential elections

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Current Events, News |

MI+American+USA+Election+2015+ballot+box+vote+Presidential+iStockEvery four years, The United States of America choose their president. Everyone is aware of that, but this that moment when people are choosing a new president and not the second term president or his opponent. Barack Obama will soon become a regular citizen, and he will give his presidential throne to some other man or woman. Was his eight-year term perfect? Probably not, but he will certainly receive some plaudits for the fight against terrorism. He is likely to be the most remembered for being the first African-American president, which is important for their struggle against racism, from the sixties through the nowadays. So the two parties, The Republicans, and The Democrats, have to choose their candidates that will represent them.

The battle for the Republican candidate was more exciting. For starters, owner of a hotel chain and TV celebrity Donald Trump has, after many years, announced that he will run for president. The Republican Party did not like this because of his political inexperience and his drastic and radical opinions. They think that his opinions about Mexican immigrants and his opinions about how all Muslims are terrorists will cost them elections. Nevertheless, that does opinions are just wrong. So they gave to the American people number of choices including John Kasich, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush, etc… However, it turns out that none of them were worthy competitors. trump-759From the beginning of the campaigning, it was clear that Trump will win his candidacy. The most surprisingly was the campaign of Jeb Bush, who was, of course, the most famous for his family connections with two ex-American presidents. People thought that because his father and his brother were in the White House, he would know how to spoil Trump’s plan of going to the Washington. He was not worthy competitor and others tried to beat Donald Trump, Some of them succeed of beating him in some states, but in the end Trump was sure winner. He even got endorsements of some of them.

MTE4MDAzNDEwMDU4NTc3NDIyBut many predict that the next president of America will be another Democrat. How in 2008 the USA got first African American president, many suggest that in 2016 they will get the first woman president. Many pundits are telling us that for most certain, Hillary Clinton will be the next American president. Everything was set for her nomination even before election campaign started. That’s why we didn’t see famous Democratic politicians as we saw in previous campaigns. Because she was Secretary of state and has the public support, she is the main favorite for the nomination, although Bernie Sanders is trying to be next candidate. He became Hillary’s problem few months ago when he started to receive much support from younger people. But in the end, many suggest that Sanders cannot beat her, because of her advantages from the beginning. Some people even say that Hillary is the right candidate because some people claim that the USA didn’t have good president since her husband Bill, and we all remember his scandals. It’s funny how things change and also how everything has to have with family connections.
