That day I was so lost and no one could help me because there was a language barrier. This was when I realized just how important languages are. It was because of this experience that I jump at every chance I get to learn a new language. Additionally, I have chosen to minor in Chinese, as I know that one day it will be of use. The second outcome of moving was having a closer relationship with my extended family.
The Stolen Generation. 100 000 Indigenous children separated from their loved ones and communities at a young age (Reconciliaction Network, 2007). Can you imagine the psychological scarring - the fear and confusion? And on the other hand, can you even begin to understand how Australians could have treated the original inhabitants of our land in this way. David Keig, a survivor of this tragedy, wrote of his journey in a poem titled, The Stolen Generation.
The process of extension is suppose to happen over time today, however, human intervention is destroying the habits of spices, hunting them into extinction and obliterating their food supplies. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has made some progress in the past 30 years but it has been hindered by law suites and the massive amounts of money that has been spent on them (Easton 2009). Perhaps that explains some of the findings that have come to light. When the Endangered Species Act was introduced it planned to save endangered species from extension. However, over 30 years later it has only saved 10 of the nearly 1,300 species that were listed.
The Arrow of Disease by Jared Diamond explains how many Natives of the Americas became victimized by germs that were brought over by the Europeans during their conquest of the Americas that began with Columbus’s voyage of 1492. Many Indians were slain by the murderous Spanish conquistadores; however, it is estimated that ninety five percent of the New World’s pre-Columbian Indian population were eliminated by foreign germs. The interesting question that is asked within The Arrow of Disease is; why didn’t the reverse happen instead, with Indian diseases decimating the Spanish invaders, spreading back across the Atlantic, and causing a ninety five percent decline in Europe’s human population? I believe the answer to the above questions lies within Europe’s past experiences. Historically, Europe had been involved with many wars and commerce for the majority of its existence and because of this fact, Europe had encountered an extraordinary number of pestilences, while the Americas were isolated and had not.
The Buffalo Creek Flood killed many people in the February of 1972. After the flood, Pittston not only didn’t admit the responsibility, but also claimed it as a natural disaster, called it “an act of god,” and later on claimed and blamed that the Buffalo Mining Company was a separate division altogether and that Pittston couldn’t be responsible for its actions. Furthermore, since Pittston rushed to settle the survivors with only 4000 dollars for the survivors from the flood, the survivors are angry with that. So it triggered the survivors to look for a law firm that is Arnold & Porter, and to represent them and seek for justice. After the flood, many people lose everything, and they had no choice but to accept these offers because they couldn’t wait until the lawsuit to follow through, not even guarantee that they will be compensated or win lawsuits.
And im sure that every man and every woman at any age will learn, too. The novel give me a glance of other possibilities. In my country I thought that our regime was bad enough I never thought that it can e worse. Reading the handmais tale made me grateful of what I have and it made also see the threat. In a way I am scared now that this can be possible.
It took place when administration of park didn’t take into account some particularities of Chinese people consumption habits and cultural traditions. This fiasco led to many complaints, ticket returns and, importantly, to lost customers. As a result of this fiasco one customer stated, “I won’t come again, even if I’m paid to.” (P. 661, Zeithaml, Bitner, Gremler). Analyzing this case, I can say, that the main difficulty was cursory examination of Chinese people culture and habits. Disneyland management didn’t look at the depth of Chinese people needs.
The war bought about many changes, not only was a generation of men lost; but there was a loss of innocence, a loss of humanity and most importantly a loss of self. I'll be comparing Journey's end to Helen Zenna Smith's Not So Quiet, like Journey’s End the novel shows a realistic portrayal of what life was like for VADS. Smith’s Not So Quiet takes place over several years, whilst Journey’s end takes place over three days, but both texts are similar in the fact that they state that the war was responsible for an entire lost generation. From the very beginning of the play Sheriff illustrates a rather bleak picture of the war, and the reader is made to feel the unwelcoming atmosphere of the dugout. However as you read on through the stage directions, Sheriff describes how the “flames of the candles that burn day and night are steady in still, damp air.” This insinuates that there is still hope for the soldiers in the dugout, the flames symbolise hope, and the candles make several appearances within the play, they become very significant towards the end of the play when the dugout is shelled at the very end of the play.
It is simply crazy, one day all the water is gone the next thing I see is my aunty dead, who got killed by a flood, alongside more than 1,000 people and 1.8 million people suffering. They are homeless hoping that things will change, hoping that they will survive these disasters. This is a horrible nightmare coming to
