The Social Security Retirement Manual

The Social Security operations manual contains over 2700 different rules. However, Jim Blair has broken this down into an easy to follow formula that will take just minutes. This guide will talk you through things in a way that is clear and easily understandable, and breaks down all your options whether you are married, divorced, single, or widowed; everyone is covered here. The Social Security Administration as an organization is notoriously unhelpful to claimants, because the huge number of claimants it faces everyday means they don't have time to go into as much detail with each individual claim as you need. With the Social Security Retirement Guide, you will be able to make a clear, informed decision about this important process, as otherwise you could miss out on hundreds of dollars a month. You will be shown how to proceed through the entire process, from deciding when to make your application to receiving your first payment. There's no more waiting in line for hours only to find you haven't been given a straight answer- this process is quick and can be done from the comfort of your own home, at your leisure.

From museums, or, in the case of props no longer in existence, or modernistic and imaginative in conception, to have them built in the studio cabinet shop' (Watts 1938 48). There was also a research department that served to authenticate period drama productions to an astonishingly high level of accuracy. For example, the production of Marie Antoinette (1938) entailed an MGM researcher's spending a year in France and taking some 12,000 photographs, from which no fewer than 98 sets were built in Los Angeles to replicate the splendour of Versailles. This was only one film - every year MGM would produce between fifty to sixty features, requiring an average of thirty-five to fifty sets each. Despite the size of the operation, Gibbons had overall control of the look of every film produced by MGM until his retirement in 1956.

FOCUS Auteurship Genre

Another later development, growing largely during the 1990s, was the film studios' willingness to support a re-edited 'director's-cut' version of earlier releases as a way of increasing each film's income. Whilst the trend should encourage audiences and academics to be cautious about attributing the details of content and structure to 'auteur signature', the 'director's cut' of Blade Runner shows the original release to be one of the most blunt examples of directorial vision altered radically to meet the commercial interests represented by the producer production company. The plot centres around Deckard, a retired 'detective' who specialises in tracking down and killing rogue 'replicants', synthesised humanoids whose programming is so sophisticated that they are hard to detect from humans. He is coerced into coming out of retirement to hunt down a group of killer replicants, 'Nexus 6' series, who have even been programmed with memories and emotions. In the film, he assassinates three...

Noir Themes in Secret Agent

In the absurd world in which we live, it is seemingly impossible to defeat nihilism. One might be able to occasionally rebel against this meaningless-ness and win small limited victories (e.g., Whatever Happened to George Foster ), but, in the end, despair too often wins out over hope. For Greene there is an escape through a Kierkegaardian leap to faith, as in his religious novels such as The Power and the Glory, The Heart of the Matter, and The End of the Affair. However, for those unwilling to make such a leap, or, like Drake, apparently unaware that such a possibility even exists, one can only escape by fantasizing about an unrealizable retirement or embracing the inevitable certainty of death, the destiny that haunts all our lives.

Hiring and Working with Union and Nonunion Talent

Becoming a union signatory involves looking at the budget first. There must be enough money in the budget to cover union talents' wages as well as fringe benefits (payments after salary that include payroll taxes, pension, health, and other union and or employee benefits). Though the statistics vary, nonunion fringe benefits are usually budgeted at around 18 , while union fringes can exceed 30 . In addition to extra benefit costs, you might factor in fees for studios or stages that only allow union members on the premises. Your project could rest heavily on hiring specific actors or on-camera personalities who are union members and not allowed to work for nonsignatory producers.

Night Falls on Manhattan

Arrest warrant for Jordan Washington. The raid was simply illegal. This technicality could put Washington back on the street, and it would put an end to Liam's thirty-seven-year career and his pension. Knowing that his father had acted out of zeal rather than malice, Sean decides to destroy the evidence. His love interest in an unsatisfying subplot, Peggy Lindstrom (Lena Olin), who is an associate in Vigoda's office, also learns of the forgery but passes on the opportunity to bring the document to the authorities. In the meantime, Liam, ever on the moral high ground, confesses his forgery to the issuing Judge Impelleteri (Dominic Chianese), who issued the warrant that had expired and been altered. He also presided over the trial and sentencing. He calmly fills out another form with the appropriate date, pretending that the altered document never existed. In effect, police, district attorney, defense lawyers, and judge have conspired to circumvent the technicalities of the law in order...

Still Mean in Las Vegas

Burgeoning gambling industries in Las Vegas. Physical presence made little difference to them, however. They float a loan from the teamsters' pension fund, set up a syndicate, and open the Tangiers, one of the most lavish casinos on the Strip. From the back room of an Italian food store in Kansas City, the old dons talk and drink grappa, like feudal lords in the manor house, while their trusted lieutenants in the field operate the casinos and their runners bring back tribute, in the form of suitcases full of cash. Still touched with nostalgia for the old ways, Scorsese presents them as benevolent grandfather types from his home neighborhood. He even casts his mother, Catherine Scorsese, as the proprietor of the food market and has her complain about the coarse language one of the soldiers uses making his report. The man apologizes, but does not change his vocabulary. These are benevolent chieftains they know that some of their underlings are skimming profits, but as long as the money...

Orange grove sequences the first to be lensed. Several scenes were shot in the picturesque locale of Avalon, on Santa Catalina Island, including the distinctive circular casino exterior. The Council Chambers of Los Angeles City Hall appear, as does the Peninsula Equestrian Centre, in Portuguese Bend, where Gittes meets Cross. The Windsor Restaurant, behind the Ambassador Hotel, was the 'Brown Derby' rendezvous between Evelyn and Gittes. Pt.

Other locations include the Biltmore Hotel, the Bradbury Building and the Big Tujunga Wash, at Foothills Boulevard. The climax of the film was actually shot in Chinatown.

Dreamstates subjectivity and motion

Perhaps no film of Hitchcock's is as complex or as ambitious as Vertigo (1958), which is the story of a detective, Scottie (James Stewart), whose fear of heights leads to his retirement (Figure 6.2). The detective is hired by an old classmate to follow his wife, Madelaine (Kim Novak), whom he fears is suicidal, possessed by the ghost of an ancestor who had committed suicide. She does commit suicide by jumping from a church tower, but not before Scottie has fallen in love with her. Despondent, he wanders the streets of San Francisco until he finds a woman who resembles Madelaine and, in fact, is the same woman. She, too, has fallen in love, and she allows him to re-create her into the image of his lost love, Madelaine. They become the same, but in the end, he realizes that, together with Madelaine's husband, she duped him. They knew he couldn't follow her up the church stairs because of his fear of heights. He was the perfect witness to a suicide. Having uncovered the murder, he takes...

FOCUS Editing and Film Form Realism

Takes the world title from Marcel Cerdan is strangely melancholy following the adrenalin-charged pursuit of La Motta's entry to the arena, this fight is portrayed in a more fragmented manner than any other. Jake's glory eventually explodes with dazzling upward angles and an orchestra of flashbulbs, but on winning, when he walks to Cerdan to embrace him, the event feels overshadowed, as if suggesting its meaninglessness. Cerdan, Edith Piaf's lover, would be killed in a plane crash soon after. The final fight where Jake takes 'terrible punishment' from Sugar Ray is the most extreme, both in its bloody violence and in its distortion of time and reality, with sounds stripped away or slowed down, or used to evoke the fighters' dehumanisation through the sound of animals' exhausted breathing. This shock of Jake's apparent self-loathing destruction is matched by the impact of a sudden leap to his bloated retirement from boxing, and his rapid demise that leads to incarceration for statutory...

Independence In The New Hollywood

Most of the 1970s auteur directors struggled in the 1980s Coppola, Scorsese, and De Palma made fewer films and their work had far less impact after 1980 Altman adapted stage plays for art-house release and Kubrick, Bogdanovich, and Malick went into semi-retirement. The only two directors to continue their ascent were Spielberg and Lucas, and consequently their particular brand of entertainment cinema became the industry template.

Independents Vs Studio Films

Independent films (or indies as they're sometimes called) are very different from traditional studio films. They invariably have smaller crews and shorter schedules and are generally financed by private investors, although some are funded by major studios operating under indie banners. At one time, being independent always meant low budget, and low budget almost always meant non-union, but now that the unions and guilds are offering low-budget (and low-low-budget) agreements, more indies are becoming signatory. These low-budget agreements allow producers to pay union and guild members lower salaries while preserving their pension, health and welfare benefits. If you're working non-union, overtime, meal penalties and or health and pension benefits may be an impossibility.


With Johnny Carson's announcement of his retirement in May 1991, a wide range of candidates entered the competition to succeed him. On August 16, 1992, a lead article in the New York Times Arts and Leisure section surveyed the field and announced Here's Everybody After Carson, A Host of Late-Night Wannabes. 12 The article reviewed Carson's historical competitors, all of whom had faltered in their drive to best or unseat the king of late night. Joey Bishop (ABC, 1967-1969), Dick Cavett (ABC, 1969-1975), Joan Rivers (Fox, 1986-1987), Pat Sajak (CBS, 1989-1990), and Ron Reagan (syndicated, 1991) were mentioned. The article handicapped Carson's competition early 1990s. It gave each of them a label Whoopi Goldberg (mass appeal), Dennis Miller (hip and quirky), Chevy Chase (flip prankster), David Letterman (sardonic style), Arsenio Hall (pop icon), Rush Limbaugh (radio conservative), Jane Whitney (intense reporter), and Jay Leno (affable comic).13 David Letter-man's name was mentioned as...


Murrow's narration of the split-screen joining of the New York harbor and San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge on the first See It Now, using the first coast-to-coast coaxial cable for television in 1951. An image that ends the period is Murrow, head in hands, worn out by struggles with the network and unable to execute his weekly radio broadcast. Two other images that capture the end of the era are Jack Paar's famous walk off The Tonight Show after being censored by network officials for a water-closet joke in 1960, and his retirement two years later as he dramatically walked off the stage, followed by his dog and with his talk-show stool in hand.

Belowthe Line

Union members are protected by strict rules that include hours worked, overtime, meals and breaks, benefits, and pension and welfare (P&W). Nonunion members can be more flexible with the hours they will work, they aren't paid benefits, and their rates tend to be more negotiable than union members who are often bound by rate scales. Nonunion members can be as qualified

Alison platt

Accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order, Ronnie is discharged ('sacked') in disgrace, and sent home without his trunk. 'They're sending it on later', he informs his father. 'R. Winslow' is separated from the name that makes him his father's son. The letter addressed to his father detailing his discharge refers to the theft of the letter 'by your son, Cadet Ronald Arthur Winslow'. The signature of the letter is indecipherable there must be no distractions from this issue of the Winslow name. The father's unremitting fight to clear his son of all charges is, above all else, a fight to clear his name, a name that is contained within his own ('Ronald Winslow'). It is, in a sense, then, a question of providing the most basic of birthrights a father's name. This is emphasised in the House of Commons when the representative of the Admiralty refers to the 'Onslow' case (perhaps a Freudian slip, given the substitution for 'win'). On a train two...


Problems with personnel have occurred when I have worked for television companies and have had to accept staff camerapersons. Sometimes they have been terrific, but a few times, I have had camerapersons who were bored, burned out, and just waiting for retirement. In those cases, the film suffered by having to use someone who was uninterested in the film and the job.

Family History

Like those of many historians who have popularized the study of popular culture, my geographic and social origins and gender are still not common amongst university professors. My own academic interest in the popular is not informed by distance, by looking at a strange, foreign activity, but by feeling inside and part of the process of consumption. My paternal grandfather, Harry Massey, was born in 1909 and came from an army background he served as a Sergeant-Major until 1947. He then worked at the Consett Iron Company, or The Works as it is known locally, as a gas engineer until early retirement through ill health in 1971. He died prematurely of gangrene in 1975, caused initially by a foot injury sustained in a fall in a fish and chip shop in Bridlington. The gangrene was worsened by his heavy smoking of the high tar cigarettes - Capstan Full Strength - advertised during the Second World War as good for the nerves and his working conditions. There is currently an investigation under...

Unions and Guilds

The requirements for union and guild (and trade organization) membership differ with each entity, because each has its own set of variables, depending upon the classification you're seeking. It's definitely advantageous to become a member of a union or guild with benefits such as overtime, meal penalties, health insurance, pension, vacation and holiday pay, etc. Union and guild membership, although preferable to the longer hours and lower wages generally associated with non-union shows, is not open to just anyone who wants in. In fact, it's often quite difficult to join some of the unions and guilds, because a primary function of their existence is to protect the employment of their current membership by limiting the number of new members they accept.
