I believe that the writer should have started the book by not defining the countless list of musical terms, but rather, he should have answered his question to the title of the first chapter: What is Music? Music is not
Some music is just that, music; beats of a drum, strums of a guitar, electronic collaborations to make a melody, with no real message. Whether it is political, cultural, social, or just for the sake of music, artists have the means to express what they feel, and the popular ones have an audience. The 1960s saw an explosion
Unlike Europeans' belief, the Indians had a complex and dynamic history in America long before 1492. Since there are no accurate facts about their way of living and new discoveries are made daily, we can not make any exact assumptions and everything has to be treated provisional. Plus, many native people reject the scholars' explanation of native origins. Some people see the native's way of living as living in perfect harmony with each other and with nature, until the first Europeans set their foot on the American land. Europeans considered them as being “uncivilized”, but I believe they were always civilized.
Greg will not win the case based in religion discrimination. The third employee is Horatio. Horatio may believe he is being terminated because he has another lawsuit pending for race discrimination (protected population). However, Horatio has no experience in HR polices or laws and will not be able to take over any other duties after the downsizing is complete. Moreover, Horatio has no evidence that the HR department treated him in a negative manner and he will not win.
This does not make the reader believe that Prince Madoc is the true discoverer of the New World, contrary to the author’s beliefs. These two were the least plausible because they did not have any physical evidence. How is someone going to prove their theory based on tales? Most people cannot because they need proof in order to make them believe. Maybe if Donald Dale Jackson had given some more proof for his side of the story then maybe Prince Madoc and the Madman and the Irish Monk Brendan would not be the least plausible theories.
Berry’s intention to persuade readers depends whether the reader agrees or disagrees with his reasons. In the end, Berry presents his personal reasons he has for rejecting computer, but has no scientific evidence or any other way to support his reasons. In my personal opinion, Berry fails to persuade other than himself because most people could not identify with his reasons. The fact that many of what he considered his reasons’ strong seemed illogical to computers’ users. For that any many other factors, public might not feel persuade by
Chapter 14 Oral Tradition For thousands of years, FN knowledge, traditions and cultures have been passed down from on generation to another in stories, narratives, songs, dances and ceremonies. Before the arrival of Europeans, FN relied on oral cultures as their languages had no written form. This oral tradition is included in many aspects of everyday life and is the basis of FN traditional education. Stories are used because they are easy to remember. The oral tradition passed on spiritual beliefs of the people and the lineage of families.
Initially, the arts were normally reserved for many formal, religious occasions, and were never really practiced for leisure under the British crown. In Colonial America however, there were schools created for the earliest of choral societies, and the most famous of musicians of the time period stressed the creation of music for self expression and leisure. Traveling operas were created; actors performed stage shows, and entertained the colonists from town to town. Due to the harsh climate that the early settlers endured, music became a welcoming escape, and an attractive hobby that many took up for themselves. The creation of arts and crafts became a trending sensation in Colonial America.
Authenticity “Authenticity” is a difficult concept to put into words in the music realm because it is not clearly defined. There are so many different ideas about authenticity that we are forced to wonder if it actually exists and if so what is it, exactly. There is a widely used quote that says, “There is nothing new under the sun.” This quote applies directly to how music is made and passed down over time. There is no musician that is completely authentic. “Authenticity” is simply an idea created by society that no musical artist has achieved, artist give their own take on what is happening around them and in the world in general.
I believe we take advantage of it because we are used to it and no one has been able to take it away from us, most of the people in the U.S. probably don’t know their full rights, the rights people before them died for in order to keep the future secure. The founding fathers didn’t have the technology we have, they didn’t have the weapons,
