Transcript: What Happened to the American Dream? Thank You! By: Lillyana Torres Phone Magazine This magazine cover is similar to The Great Gatsby because phones were presented to the world as a simple, crucial way to communicate with others from long distances. Wealthy, important people who needed to come in contact with others used their corded telephones to have short conversations. Similar to Gatsby Similar This magazine cover is different from Gatsby's time. We have evolved and became more resourceful. We now are concerned with the newest features of our hand held cell phones. We now use cell phones for much more than communication. We use cell phones as a way to complete our new vision of the American Dream. We use them to have many things at the touch of a button, 24/7. We can send and receive money, get food and drinks, and even see and hear people from thousands of miles. We have a freedom that was not granted in the 1920s. We have improved our technological abilities and continue to push our limits to do new and amazing things. Different from Gatsby Changed Style Magazine This magazine is similar to the style of that of Gatsby's time of the rich, fancy people. They dress up in their dresses and suits to go to parties or just through town. They women were defying everyone by wearing short, revealing dresses with lots of sequence and style. The men stayed in their fancy suit and ties which is similar to the way men dress up today. They used their style to show their confidence and complete their reputation. Similar to Gatsby Similar The magazine is different from Gatsby's American Dream having to do with how people now want to be presented. Women had gained the right to vote and were allowed freedoms equal to everyone else. These girls were called flappers and they used their bright makeup and fancy dresses to make express themselves. This image is different because in the 1920s women wore bright and exaggerated makeup, gloves, and head pieces to give them a sense of power and freedom. Their dresses were short and usually had straps to keep them up while they ran and danced. Different from Gatsby Changed Racial Acceptance Magazine This magazine is similar to Gatsby's American Dream because we have grown as a country to be more accepting. We had our first black President from 2009-2017 and women are starting to stand up for the presidency. This is similar to Gatsby because all races and genders are having an equal chance at freedom and hope for a greater future. The Great Gatsby describes how they were driving beside a limousine with "three modish Negroes" in it saying that anything can happen. This is referring to how everyone is gaining rights and all people are having an equal chance at having anything and being able to do as they please. Now days, people of all races, religions, and genders can live together and have a greater opportunity to reach their full potential. Similar to Gatsby Similar Different from Gatsby Changed This is different from Gatsby's American Dream because at the time people were used to white, males having all the money and power. At this point, anyone can be successful and have money or power. At this time the wealthy could also be viewed as the criminals, gangsters, and have mysterious backgrounds. But today, many everyday are being racially profiled and accused based on their race. There are many differences, but in some parts of the story it is worse when it changes from the rich, white man to a young, poor, black teen getting shot and killed. Smoking and Drinking Magazine These articles are similar to the American Dream in the Great Gatsby because many wanted to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes. At the time it was not unusual to see people smoking and drinking, even with their desired products being illegal. In the 1920s people were living the American Dream by living every moment to the fullest, not caring about tomorrow, but partying, drinking, and smoking for fun. They had these events in the story that promoted people to come drinking at Gatsby's and he had what wasn't supposed to be allowed, but that relates today with the banned Juul product, but there are still people finding ways to get their hands on what they want. Similar to Gatsby Similar This magazine is different from Gatsby's American Dream because in the 1920s era there was prohibition and cigarettes were popular. The ban on alcohol is different from now because it is legal and along with that it is easy for adults to get. In Gatsby's time, his wealth and reputation allowed him to sneak through the cracks of the government to get away with these things. This time is different than Gatsby's also because there were only cigarettes being mass produced, but now there are many vapes available. With this, studies are coming out showing signs of addictive qualities to these products and their long term effects. But at the time the American Dream was to live and have no worries. Different from Gatsby Changed Rags to Riches

Transcript: Gatsby's house was "a colossal affair by any standard -- it was a factual imitation of some Hotel de Ville in Normandy, with a tower on one side, spanking new under a thin beard of raw ivy and a marble swimming pool and more than 40 acres of lawn and garden"(9). Theme: When someone allows an event in life to define his existence, his obsession with that event jeopardizes his overall well-being. "I wanted somebody who wouldn't gossip. Daisy comes over quite often -- in the afternoons"(120). "Cody was 55 years old then, a product of the Nevada silver fields, of the Yukon, of every rush for metal since '75"(105). The Transformation of Jay Gatbsy's Life "There was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found it difficult to forget: a singing compulsion, a whispered 'Listen,' a promise that she had done gay, exciting things just a while since and that there were gay, exciting things hovering in the next hour"(14). "A lot of these newly rich people are just big bootleggers, you know"(14). Daisy "He knew when he kissed this girl and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God"(117). "It was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again"(6).

But did you know Wikipedia pages appear on Page 1 of Google for 99% of searches? Beyond that staggering number, Wikipedia is the No. 1 result on Google for 56% of searches, while 96% of searches saw Wikipedia in one of the top five positions! Source: Danny Goodwin Associate Editor, Search Engine Watch Is SEO dead? We are a dynamic, Global Business Solutions provider that researches and develops new software to effectively use the internet to market your business online through various search engines around the world. We have developed incredible, state-of-the-art, game-changing software called CMS Guru which will help your business to make the most of your website. Organic or Natural Results Wikipedia Appears on Page 1 of Google for 96% of Searches! Nothing has changed and everything has changed… When it comes to Google's goals, nothing has changed. It STILL has a first priority of displaying the most relevant search results possible. It wants to weed out the gunk and only show us what we are really, really hoping to find. What has changed is how Google accomplishes this goal. Before the emergence of social media, Google had to only rely on the language of the website and how popular, indicated by the number and quality of links to that site, a site was. But today, Google can use ‘social’ data to determine which content is important. This means that, in addition to paying attention to everything it used to pay attention to, Google is also factoring in how popular you are in your industry through social media. The whole algorithm is changing. Sites such as Wikipedia and TripAdvisor are good examples of sites making full use of this. Our solution: Organic listings tend to generate more click throughs as they offer unbiased product information. Source: Enquiro FACT: More people click on organic listings than sponsored listings. As much as 85% of all click throughs in Google are said to be organic. Source: Enquiro Organic results tend to be longer lasting. Unlike a sponsored campaign where a competitor can outbid you for top spot, a well-optimized site can remain in top position for months and even years. It easy to see how these top organic rankings help contribute to their achieving massive online sales each month.

Transcript: How do you change the font style? “He was profoundly affected by the fact that Tom was there. But he would be uneasy anyhow until he had given them something, realizing in a vague way that that was all they came for.” (98) “…disappearing under the August foliage, just as Gatsby, with hat and light overcoat in hand, came out the front door.” (100) “They arrived at twilight, and, as we strolled out among the sparkling hundreds, Daisy’s voice was playing murmurous tricks in her throat.” “But what had amused me then turned septic on the air now.” (102) “Gatsby asked me to wait until her was free, and I lingered in the garden until the inevitable swimming party had run up, chilled and exaled, from the black beach, until the lights were extinguished in the guest rooms overhead.” (105) "Tom's arrogant eyes roamed the crowd." (101) "...but I felt an unpleasantness in the air, a pervading harshness that hadn't been there before." (100) "But his heart was in a constant, turbulant riot."(95) “He was a son of God” (95) “A universe of ineffable gaudiness spun itself out in his brain...”(95) "They were a party of three on horseback."(98) “Tom and I shook hands, the rest of us exchanged a cool nod, and they trotted quickly down the drive...” (100) “…his mind would never romp again like the mind of God” (107) “A breeze stirred the grey haze of Daisy’s fur coat.” (104) MAJOR CHARACTERS Colour: “A blue coat, six pairs of white duck trousers, and a yachting cap.” (96) “If you want to kiss me any time during the evening, Nick, just let me know and I’ll be glad to arrange it for you. Just mention my name. Or present a green card. I’m giving out green—“ (101) “Gatsby indicated a gorgeous, scarcely human orchid of a woman who sat in state under a white-plum tree.” (101) “Go ahead’, answered Daisy genially, ‘And if you want to take down any addresses here’s my little gold pencil…” (102) “I ventured. You cant repeat the past. Can't repeat the past? He cried incredulously. Why of course you can!” (106) This shows how Gatsby is stuck in the past and wants those same feelings Daisy had for him to be there now. “He was a son of God” (95) Gatsby is seen as a Christ like figure When Tom and the Sloanes leave on horseback and Gatsby follows them in his car shows how even rich people have class distinctions such as “old money” and “new money” Tom and the Sloanes are old money and Gatsby is new money. MINOR CHARACTERS THE GREAT GATSBY “I suppose he’s had the name ready for a long time, even then.” (95) “Moreover he told it to me at a time of confusion, when I had reached the point of believing everything and nothing about him. So I take advantage of this short halt, while Gatsby, so to speak, caught his breath, to clear this set of misconceptions away.” (97) “I was startled, naturally, but the really surprising thing was that it hadn’t happened before.” (98) By: Stephanie, Bristo, David and Simonne The Great Gatsby Prezi Presentation MOTIFS/PATTERNS MAJOR CHARACTERS The chapter opens with a reporter travelling to Gatsby’s mansion hoping to interview him. Gatsby was born James Gatz and grew up on a North Dakota farm, to parents who were unsuccessful farmers. Gatsby was fishing for salmon and digging for clams, and warned Cody, a yacht owner, about an approaching storm. To show his gratefulness, Cody offered Gatsby the position of his personal assistance and changed his name to Jay Gatsby. Several weeks later, Nick goes to Gatsby’s house and finds the company of Tom Buchanan and Mr. and Mrs. Sloane, who arrived by horse shortly after Nick. On Saturday night, Tom, Daisy and Nick go to a party at Gatsby’s house, and no one has an enjoyable time. FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE F. Scott Fitzgerald CHAPTER 6 Presentation “Tom was evidently perturbed at Daisy’s running around alone, for on the following Saturday night he came with her to Gatsby’s party. Perhaps his presence gave the evening its peculiar quality of oppressiveness—it stands out in my memory from Gatsby’s other parties this summer.” (100) “Or perhaps I had merely grown used to it, grown to accept West Egg as a world complete in itself, with its own standards and its own great figures, second to nothing because it had no consciousness of being so, and now I was looking at it again, through Daisy’s eyes.” (100) VOCABULARY Romance: “After all, in the very casualness of Gatsby’s party there were romantic possibilities totally absent from her world. What was it up there in the song that seemed to be calling her back inside? What would happen now in the dim, incalculable hours? Perhaps some unbelievable guest would arrive, a person infinitely rare and to be marveled at, some authentically radiant young girl who with one fresh glance at Gatsby, one moment of magical encounter, would blot out those five years of unwavering devotion?” (105) Cars/Aristocracy: “‘I haven’t got a horse,’ said Gatsby, ‘I used to ride in the army, but I’ve never bought a horse. I’ll have to follow to you in my car.” (99)
Transcript: Yushi is basically an authentic Asian cuisine turned into a modern Asian cuisine. We get our ideas of food from different Asian countries such as China, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnamese, Japanese, etc. We are basically a fast food chain place with the concept of an “Asian Subway/Chipotle”. Unlike these places, most of our food is freshly prepared. We receive fresh fish everyday, which are used for sushi and salads. We have just-made chilled and hot grab and go dishes. You have an option to try something different everyday due to the variety of options being provided. We review performance every 6 months. We keep tracks of their overtime. This shows that they are willing to put in extra hours for themselves as well as for the company. That shows the amount of dedication they have. Our employees are one of our top priorities. We want them to succeed as much as possible and reviewing performance is a great opportunity for them to show case their abilities and talent. How would you describe Yushi? YUSHI: ASIAN KITCHEN Date: October 26 2012 Time: 3pm Individual's name: Tenzing Jangchup Position: Human Resource Location of employment: 100 Maiden Street, New York, 10038 Contact Number: 9174344767 Email Address: email@example.com BY: Dorje Sherpa what kind of training program does the company offer? Is it highly structured or more informal? How often do you review performance? In order to determine the status of an employee, performing Evaluation programs is very helpful and important. It helps the HR and the manager figure out how the employees are performing. In Yushi, Jangchup evaluates his employees once every 6 months. In my opinion it should be taking place 2-3 times every six months. There are employees who might not be able to stick with the job for 6 months. It’s a very long gap that needs to be filled with the records of the employee and their progress that they have made so far. Application -Interview -Hired on Spot -Orientation _start off your first day at work. When we first opened our restaurant in Maiden Lane, we had an orientation, which lasted for a week. One of our executive Chef Danny Lachs talked about the background information of company such as when we were created and what influenced us to open up a food chain such as Yushi. It is highly structured because we planned out the orientation before hands. We have a process of going through all the information they need to know about the job and their position. We train our employee before the restaurant operates. asd NEGATIVE ASPECTS EMPLOYEE SELECTION THE END
