Musical Theatre

This is a weekly Reaction paper that I need to write about my thoughts and reactions to different musicals. This week’s musical is “Cabaret”.
1. So first, we need to watch the musical. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOs82ubFyFQ
2. We need to read articles in order to cite at least 1 source in the paper. (I attached the Reading articles below.
3. Write: maximum 2 pages in MLA style (in-text and work cited page).
The text below are some questions/prompts that professor suggests. But he said we can write about any topics that we want. (music, dance, plot, diversity issue,…)

– “Sally Bowles is a woman unlike those in the other musicals we have seen?  How is she portrayed?  What are her motivations for being the way she is?  Do you think she is meant to be a positive role model?
– Compare the ideas about sex conveyed by Sally Bowles, Natalia Landauer, Maximilian von Heune, Cliff Bradshaw (Brian Roberts), and the Emcee (you should probably just choose a few of these to focus on).
– What is Sallys relationship with men (friends, lovers, clients, her boss, her father)?
– How is bisexuality treated in the show?  How is this subplot affected by its context in Nazi Germany?
– Talk about Sallys choice to have an abortion.  What is its significance considering the timeline of Roe v. Wade (considering the show was created by an American team)?  What were the politics surrounding abortion in Europe at this time?
– How does Cabaret depict the problem of being Jewish in Germany during this time?
– In the film, what is the function of the cabaret?  What about the mirror?”

I will send you
– my 2 essays, they got a low B.
– my friend’s essay that got an A.
– 5 reading articles to cite.
– and also a script of Cabaret (just in case you need to cite some lines). The file is big that I can’t attach. I put the link here, pls let me know if u can’t open it. https://vcom56.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/script-1.pdf

Operating Systems

Curated Exhibit Project

For your final project in this course, you will put to the test the curatorial and historicizing skills you have practiced in the Explore & Curate and Micro-History assignments. You will create a full exhibit within the Museum of Communication Technologies.

A museum exhibit is typically organized by an origin-, need-, or theme-based structure. Constructing an exhibit requires that you do some curation of the artifacts within itthat you offer some detailed description of their significance or valueincluding the provenance, arrangement, and researchability of those texts or materials.

The materials or texts in your exhibit can come from anywherethey could be artifacts you have in your possession, texts you collect over the course of the term, and/or texts that come from your or other students contributions to the course museum via the Explore & Curate activities. You will need to provide brief descriptions (item labels) for each of the items in your exhibit so that researchers can easily identify them.

In constructing this exhibit, you will need to determine the arrangement of the artifacts (i.e., in what order are they meant to be viewed by a museum visitor?) and provide detailed information about each artifacts source and origin via item labels. You will also compose a curatorial statement, a 5-6 page (not including title or references pages) document that introduces the collection, and employs research to explain the significance of the artifacts and your overall exhibit. The curatorial statement should contain an overview of the exhibit; describe its origins, scope, arrangement or organization, purpose, and contents; and ideally, should give users a sense of its historic and actual significance.

Artifacts: **10-12** carefully selected artifacts that are relevant to your exhibits theme or topic. These artifacts may take the form of text-based files, images, videos, sound clips, or other media, depending on your exhibits theme and scope.
Labels for each artifact: At a minimum, labels should identify the artifact by its title or a descriptive phrase, provide its source, owner, and/or author, and briefly describe when, how, and why the item was created (in other words, its intentionality, materiality, and functionality). If your exhibit covers several time periods or communication genres/media, you may choose to use additional section labels to help introduce visitors to the different parts of your exhibit.
Curatorial Statement: An overall curatorial statement that provides an overview of the exhibits purpose, theme, and arrangement and uses research to provide readers with a sense of the exhibits significance. The curatorial statement should provide historical context for the exhibit as well as offer some window into your study of communication technologies. The curatorial statement should be 5-6 pages in length (not including cover or references pages) and should cite a minimum of three sources.
Your exhibit should be housed on The Museum of Communication Technologies (via BloggerTM). However, you have many options for constructing your exhibit within this platform. For instance, you might choose to create and upload a presentation, using slides to guide viewers through your artifacts, and using voiceover to communicate the artifact labels. Or, if you are comfortable manipulating HTML code, you might choose to create a responsive image gallery in Blogger. Whatever you choose should be in line with your goals for the exhibit. Your curatorial statement can be uploaded as a Word or PDF file or formatted within the text of your Blogger entry.

Questions to consider when writing the curatorial statement:

What do you want visitors to your exhibit to learn about your topic or theme? What histories do the artifacts in your exhibit help you to tell? What background and context does your reader need in order to understand the significance of the artifacts in the exhibit?
How does your exhibit contribute to or advance the study of communication technologies?
What do you think is the research potential for your exhibit? What questions do these objects or texts raise that have yet to be answered?
How do the individual artifacts in your exhibit connect to each other and to your theme/topic, and why were they selected for inclusion in this exhibit over others?
Why are the artifacts arranged as they are? How does the organization of the exhibit contribute to the visitors experience and to the exhibits goals and purpose?

Any topic (writer’s choice)

Price taking of course prevails in the market after the equilibrium has taken place, but the question is how the equilibrium is determined beforehand, by the forces of demand and supply, which certainly remain the same before and after equilibrium (meaning that a sloping demand curve can not be horizontal at the time of equilibrium). The revision here is simply that the individual demand for the firm is the total demand equally distributed to the number of firms, because buyers certainly do not have a preference for some firms in buying the product since it is an homogeneous product. This means that the individual demand curves for the firms are sloping and not horizontal and this has tremendous implications on the economic theory and its outcomes (the equilibrium point is not at the minimum average cost, which invalidates the maximization of social welfare and the optimization of Pareto efficiency, etc).
