First up is the new Content-aware Editing where PowerDirector analyzes major scenes, such as those with faces, motion, zoom or pan; and hones in on imperfections that can be improved using TrueTheater, such as poor lighting and shakiness. The new version of PowerDirector comes with improved Dual Monitor Editing.

I also enjoy using the object removal in PhotoDirector, works great if you accidently got a light or something in the shot. The ColorDirector, Motion Tracking feature works a lot better than the one found in After Effects. It’s much easier to use and makes everything a lot faster and less stressful.

A Word or Two on The Book "To Kill A Mockingbird"

In the words of Atticus Finch, "Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand, It's knowing you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." Courage is one of the biggest, if not the biggest theme shown completely throughout the book To Kill A Mockingbird. Courage is to simply stand up for what you believe in and take action on it. Don't just sit around and say something but never take any action to what you're saying. Many characters in the book To Kill A Mockingbird greatly show this essential characteristic throughout the book.

One of the main characters who exemplify courage throughout the book is young Jem Finch. Jem is constantly protecting and watching over his little sister Scout (Jean Louise) Finch. During many parts of the book Jem helped Scout out when she was sad, he would work hard to comfort her and cheer her up. He helps Scout out to not get into fights at school, and to not get in trouble with their father Atticus. The biggest example (in my opinion) of courage that Jem shows though is the night in the woods. When Mr. Bob Ewell attacks him and Scout as they are walking home from a school event. Jem pushes Scout aside and tries his best to keep Mr. Ewell from harming Scout.

In the 1930's it wasn't the easiest thing for a white man to do his best to defend a black man. Atticus Finch though, he did, and he truly did it to the best of his abilities. That is an excellent example of courage. During the trial of Tom Robinson, Atticus was persecuted, looked down upon, and was given more trouble than the black man in which he was defending. That did not stop Atticus however, he gave it his best, and it's clearly made known in the book that Atticus should of won the case, and that many of the spectators had though Atticus had won as well. Alas, when the final word came from the jury, the white man who had accused the black man or raping his daughter won the case. Atticus' courage was not gone unrewarded though; the people of Tom Robinson's church paid Atticus their gratitude in food.

Perhaps the most courageous of all the characters in To Kill A Mockingbird was none other than Boo (Arthur) Radely. Boo is slightly overlooked character though, personality wise. The people of the town were always talking him down, even though they didn't know Boo at all. Boos' first example of being courageous is when he first starts to communicate with Hem and Scout. He leaves Jem and Scout small gifts in the hole of the tree next to the Radely house. Later on in the book Boo saves Jem and Scot during Mr. Ewell's attack on them in the woods. Book takes Jem home to make sure he is safe. The next major example of Boos' courage is when he makes his first public appearance in nearly twenty years. He shows himself to the Finch household the night he brought Jem home from the attack.

"Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It's knowing you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." Atticus Finch says, and his is most certainly right. The character in the book To Kill A Mockingbird demonstrates this saying perfectly. This is only a small portion of the many examples of courage in To Kill A Mockingbird. It has many more to offer, and it shows the point behind this books main theme, COURAGE!

Synopsis Of "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life"


Book Title: "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life"

Author: James Patterson

Just like in Maycomb County (reference to the book "To Kill A Mocking Bird" by Harper Lee), Hills Village Middle School has its several "classes" of people. In the book it talks about the preps, jocks, teachers' pets, bullies, and the people in between. No "class" is too fond of the other "classes". The teachers' pets are straight "A" students who look down on the bullies who seem to not care about school. The bullies look down on everyone (including themselves), they don't care about school, and they torture the people in school.

Ralfe was a very interesting and intriguing character. The book was in his point of view, which made em feel more connected to his character. Unlike the other characters in the book, I knew how Ralfe was feeling, and what he was thinking. I saw how he worked things out in his head, and how his thinking changed throughout the book. He was a character trying to have fun in school, but he did not really logic the outcome of his actions. He wanted to attempt make himself remembered, and through it all, he did just that.

James Patterson (the books author) has a unique writing style. His basic text is subtle and easy to understand. If you look within the text though you were able to see the big message. I've heard that James Patterson makes some really interesting stories. I'm intrigued by his work, and I really like his style of writing. I would definitely like to read more form Patterson.

If I were to be an English teacher, or any teacher for that matter, I would most definitely recommend this book to my class. The book contains several key assets to school and how to be successful in school. It talks about behavior, grades, actions and their consequences. It even includes personal problems you might deal with outside of school. The book mainly shows the characters handling their scenarios the wrong way and then showing the consequences of their actions. I believe the book has valuable information for students to know about school at any and every grade level.

Christmas Dinner

My Christmas dinner was a sensational feast of delightfulness. I scarfed down several plates of ham, rolls, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and chocolate pie. My main dish was ham. The ham was smooth with a slick texture to it. It glistened like the ocean on a warm summer afternoon. It tasted even better than it looked. I also enjoyed some rolls that my mother made from scratch. The rolls were soft and my teeth easily cut through the warm center of the roll. The delighting, welcoming smell of the rolls filled the house, drawing me to the kitchen. I then moved on to the mashed potatoes which looked like a field of smooth, soft, white, fluffy snow. The potatoes had a taste that seemed to dance on my tongue. My mother had also made her delicious macaroni and cheese (which I have yet to find a single soul who dislikes it). The way my mom makes them is like no other. She makes them these little golden bars of sunshine. Their smell captivates my nose every time I'm near them. For desert we had my mother's chocolate pie. I love to hear the crunching of the hard chocolate shell when I take a bite. My mom made so much food, it was like an endless buffet. I feasted for days.
