When we first meet him, Michael Oher is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or how to read and write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, Evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces alter Oher: the family's love and the evolution of professional football into a game where the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback's greatest vulnerability, his blind side.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,5, Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Film „Blinde Side - die große Chance“ ist ein Melodram aus dem Jahr 2009 von dem amerikanischen Regisseur John Lee Hancok. Der Originaltitel des Films heißt „The Blinde Side“ und wurde erstmals in den USA veröffentlicht. Daher ist die Originalsprache des Films Englisch. Der Film dauert 128 Minuten und hat eine Altersfreigabe ab 6 Jahren. Das Drehbuch, welches auch von John Lee Hancok verfasst wurde, basiert auf dem Roman „The Blind Side – Evolution of a Game“ von Michael Lewis aus dem Jahre 2006. Die Geschichte des Romans basiert auf einer wahren Begebenheit. „(...) nirgendwo ist festgelegt, dass sich ein Film eng und treu an seine literarische Vorlage halten muss“ , wobei dies bei „Blinde Side“ der Fall ist. Wie oben schon erwähnt, lässt sich der Film dem Genre „Melodram“ zuordnen. „Genres sind gedankliche Konstruktionen der Einordnung und Beschreibung eines Spielfilms.“ In der Literatur wird das Melodram als „Filmgenre [bezeichnet], das auf triviale Handlung setzt, die Schicksalshaftigkeit des Lebens betont und den Zuschauer bis zur Gefühlsmanipulation emotional bewegt.“ Im Folgenden werde ich zuerst den Inhalt des Films zusammenfassen und die im Film handelnden

Der Superbowl, das Finale der US-amerikanischen Football-Meisterschaft, ist eines der größten Sportevents der Welt. Allein in Deutschland verfolgen über zwei Millionen Zuschauer nicht nur dieses unglaubliche Spektakel, sondern inzwischen auch die gesamt NFL-Saison – und das jedes Mal mitten in der Nacht! Für diese Fans ist Patrick Esume ein Star. Der TV-Experte und Moderator hat sich in den letzten Jahren als DAS deutsche Gesicht dieser Sportart etabliert. In seinem ersten Buch erklärt uns der „Coach“, wie er liebevoll genannt wird, alle Facetten dieser verrückten, exotischen und ungemein spannenden Sportart. Und zwar so, wie man es aus seinen erfolgreichen TV-Sendungen kennt: voller Begeisterung, mit größter Sachkenntnis und genauso viel Spaß – inklusive Fachchinesisch, Statistiken, Top-Ten-Listen, Spielerporträts und spannenden Hintergrundgeschichten. Esume feierte als Spieler wie als Trainer zahlreiche Erfolge und schöpft in seinem Buch aus seinem reichen Erfahrungsschatz. Auch wenn der Bericht des zweimonatigen Alptraums, den sein erstes NFL-Trainingscamp in den USA darstellte, nichts für verzärtelte Kickergemüter ist: Hier kommt jeder Sportfan garantiert voll auf seine Kosten!

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the year 1960. He attended Princeton University and graduated with a BA in Art History. After a few years in the banking industry, Lewis left his lucrative position to write his first novel, Liar's Poker (1989) and to find work as a financial journalist. Liar's Poker was a semi-autobiographical novel focused on Lewis' experiences at Salomon Brothers. He continued the financial theme in his sophomore novel, The New, New Thing (1999) before transitioning to the sports-centered theme found in The Blind Side with his novel Moneyball (2003), which focused on the success of Billy Beane and the Oakland A's. Lewis' success has been far-reaching. As a regular contributor for such periodicals as The New Yorker, The New Republic, Slate, Conde Nast, and Vanity Fair, famed novelist Tom Wolfe called Lewis one of the two top "writers to watch" in 2010. The Blind Side is the story of high school footballer Michael Oher rising from the clutches of poverty to rise to fame as a first-pick draft choice for the NFL. When the book was first released in 2006, it quickly became a New York Times bestseller.

Downing tools in the allotment where they have toiled for the last six years, Valerie and her husband Wolfram decide to cycle to Germany to visit his mother. Before they leave, Val's guide the Aztec Priest appears among the bean rows and tells her this will be a Vision Quest - and so it turns out to be, not least due to their involvement in Channel 4's 'Real Holiday Show'. In spite of the dangers they encounter on this trip they develop an appetite for foreign parts and embark on many subsequent cycling adventures, all of which turn out more or less disastrously. Travel with them as they ride through France, Italy and their beloved Black Forest - the stoic Val shouting instructions from behind as the hapless blind Wolf does his best to avoid hitting anything. Share their horrors and delights at the larger-than-life characters they meet abroad and the comradeship of their Asian neighbours on the allotments. A heartwarming and spiritual tale of two lives inextricably intertwined - until Fate intervened.

What explains public debt spikes since the end of WWII? To answer this question, this paper identifies 179 debt spike episodes from 1945 to 2014 across advanced and developing countries. We find that debt spikes are not rare events and their probability increases with time. We then show that large public debt spikes are neither driven by high primary deficits nor by output declines but instead by sizable stock-flow adjustments (SFAs). We also find that SFAs are poorly forecasted, which can affect debt sustainability analyses, and are associated with a higher probability of suffering non-declining debt paths in the aftermath of public debt spikes.
