Studies have shown that unstable families are the number one causes for serial killers. Studies suggest that 60% of psychopathic individuals had lost a parent. The majority of serial killers have also been deprived of love or nurturing, parents are detached or absent, the child received inconsistent discipline, if father is stern and mother is soft, and hypocritical parents who privately belittle the child while publicly presenting the image of a "happy family".
Most people view mass transit as a safe way to travel. However, the New York Subway's crime rate has risen anywhere between 17 and 23 percent since the same time period last year. One of the rising issues are "subway creepers", professional thieves who slash people's pockets while they sleep and take their valuables. People are waking up with holes in their pockets and their phones, wallets, and laptops missing. The New York Police Department had decided to step in and help.
Redheads are all the rage these days. One of my good friends, Seamus Appel, sports a bright red buzz cut. Redheads, however, might be on their way out. Studies put out years ago predicted the extinction of redheads in the near future. It is mindblowing that my great great grandchildren may never have the joy of talking to a redheaded great great grandson of Seamus Appel. The other day I stumbled upon an article saying that the world's largest sperm bank is denying redheads. This seems like it will only increase the rate of our redheaded friend's extinction.
The main thing that I have learned is that television shows evolve and so do viewers. Popular shows in the 1990s, like Friends and Seinfeld, which were about a close knitted group of clean friends, would never survive in televisions market today which feeds off negativity. Today’s viewers are drawn to more dirty and mean spirited comedies like Two and a Half men. In addition, television is also changing the amount of money it spends on itself. In past years, television could never keep up with the production quality of high intensity action thrillers.
"The Best of Will Ferrell: Saturday Night Live" was playing non stop at my house from sixth grade until freshman year. I probably had the entire dvd memorized. I moved on to The Best of Chris Farley and Dana Carvey. When those got old I decided to give the live show a try. I hated it. I thought that there would be about one funny skit for the entire show and that was it. A few weeks ago I decided to start watching it again, and I have loved it. My favorite skit of the year is probably where the spoof the sports shows about Linsanity. I also love when the actors break character.
I searched for the category "television" and "television shows" in all four websites. The New York Times was somewhat helpful. The set up of the website made it the easiest to use. It was a lot easier to browse titles of articles on this database than any other. I found a good article about the return of Arrested Development. My question is what makes good television shows, and Arrested Development has one of the most avid fan bases. Newsbank was my least favorite database. I cannot tell if I am searching for things incorrectly because I keep receiving zero hits for the most simple words.
It looks like Two-Face has arrived at Judge, and it is not Harvey Dent. Seamus has been roaming the halls with the attitude of a hungry 5 year old. Most recently, he was quoted calling Chris Coomb's fingers "Feminine" and John Kearns' legs "silly". At first glance, Seamus is your average high school golden boy. Not only does he excel in academics and athletics, he sports a golden main of hair. But recent problems have risen, causing many to question the very man we have all grown to love.
Chasing Ice is an independent documentary about the effect of climate change on our world's glacier. Glaciers are like the mine canaries in our world's ecosystem, and by studying glaciers we can find out what is going on in our atmosphere. Chasing Ice showed glaciers receding up to 2 miles in a matter of years. The film gets us thinking about the effect that humans have on the planet. With powerful movies like this, the environmental movement against climate change is sure to surge on stronger than ever. The problem is, we never stop and ask the question, how do the glaciers feel about this?
