A film reviewWritten by Florie Lyn Masarate
For those who have seen movie “Disclosure”, they would have seen workplace harassment in a different light. The movie is based from John Grisham’s book of same title. The story is about a hard-working employee in line for a top position in company. He later found out that position which was supposed to be his was given to another, a woman, who happens to be his ex-girlfriend who still has a thing for him. It goes on to evolve with her seducing him, and telling it other way around when he refused to be seduced. And he shouting sexual harassment but no one believes. It continues on with manipulations and betrayals, and finally truth surfaces in end…
What is point of story? It basically tells about sexual harassment in workplace, with a twist. As opposed to usual cases, man is victim here. It is rare for man to be victim but it happens. Everyone can be victim. In this case, power is used to be able to get away with action done. The ones in position is one who gets away with these crimes as seen on books and movies. Stories like this are mostly based on reality. Making it known to people these instances happens and will continue to.
This does not only happen in books and films. This and other similar cases of harassment really in workplace, in real life. It can be noted that in some of these cases, employees tend to just keep quiet about these things because of fear of losing their jobs that supports them and their families. Others are even being paid off to keep quiet. Some are threatened maybe. Whatever reason is, victim cannot always have justice done. Those that seek it do not always get fair results.
What extreme sports are made of.Written by Florie Lyn Masarate
There was a time when there were just a few ski resorts. When skiing was just a seasonal hobby. As time goes on, more and more have been built and people have taken to skiing as a hobby. With ever growing competitions, ski resorts took to developing and creating more complicated and dangerous slopes to add more excitement to skiers. To keep up with demands of people, these resorts added more challenges to their mountains to attract people who are constantly seeking adventures. The more dangerous, better. As resorts continue to produce more thrills, skiers tended to come back for more. These persons never got tired of trying untried and comes back for more.
Extreme sports have evolved more in years that passed. The dangerous becomes more dangerous. The difficult more difficult. All in name of sport. People easily picked this up as they get tired of usual things that they repeated do. The danger has become a new frontier to conquer.
It is in nature of people to like dangers and fun that goes with it. That is why, skiing become a source of this when they got to feel action in this sport. Some even go to extreme, making simple act of skiing as extreme sport. Doing things others do not usually do. Trying everything from plain sliding to jumps in air, trying to test their capacity and their limitations. These people may be aware of dangers they are in but that is thrill of it all. The danger is what drives them into doing these sports. This came to a point that laws have been made exclusively for these resorts and people that goes to them.
