Sample paper Horror Films as Vehicles for Change Our American society knows horror films as a way to scare ourselves for entertainment. Many horror films are also a reflection of real-life horrors. After all, aren’t you more afraid when you know that what is scary really happened? However, horror films based on real events are more than just scary; they can also make us more aware of horrific acts that are occurring in society, including acts of war and racially-motivated acts of violence that might otherwise go unnoticed and unfelt. The 1974 film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was one of the most horrific movies of all time. The film was inspired by serial killer Ed Gein who was known as necrophiliac, a cannibal and a murder. Police who arrested Gein reported that the Gein Farm smelled like rotting and decaying meat. But as Erik McClanahan writes, the film was also political: “America was in a dark place during the film’s initial release, with racial tensions, a struggling economy, Vietnam and Watergate, and the apparent passing of the counter-culture, to name but a few issues.” Ironically, many viewers would have been more aware of the horrors depicted in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre than the actual horrors of the Vietnam War given that the news media was reluctant to show actual war footage. Tobe Hooper was using this film in order to critique violence, not glorify it. In fact, McClanahan reports that Hooper stopped eating meat while making the film.

Directional vs Non-Directional Hypotheses The hypotheses we have been talking about are called non-directional hypotheses because they do not specify how the means should differ That is, they do not say that the mean of condition 1 should be larger than the mean of condition 2 They only state that the means should differ Non-directional hypotheses are sometimes called two-tailed tests 20

Directional vs Non-Diretional Hypotheses Directional hypotheses include an ordinal relation between the means That is, they state that one mean should be larger than the other mean For directional hypotheses, the H0 and H1 are written as: H0: 1  2 H1: 1 > 2 Directional hypotheses are sometimes called onetailed tests 21

Directional light source • The light sources that we have discussed so far were point light sources which radiated light in all directions. Real lights in the world do not have this property. Instead, real lights typically are directional. • A directional light source can be described as having – a position – a directional vector – an angular limit from that vector – a color • The vector will be the axis in a cone shaped volume. This volume is the only part of space that will be illuminated by this light. Anything outside the cone will not be illuminated by this light. • See diagram next slide.

Through the years… • NMU Public Safety once had a full-time Health and Safety position, however due to budget cuts in the early 1990’s the position was eliminated. • Safety at NMU did not stop when the Health & Safety position was eliminated • Public Safety as a team moved forward with Health and Safety at NMU, the problem was, the individuals in Health and Safety were primarily law enforcement so Safety was not their only job!
