Because the tea had a lot of bubble, the taste of tea liked a gum. “It’s an art street,” someone talked his friend about the Westport when I heard their speaking. Many times the Westport performs a lot of music and painting shows. I didn’t remember what day is, but few weeks ago the art festival I went was beautiful and extraordinary because a lot of artist sold their
Eric Sylvester English 102 February 21, 2013 Louisiana is known for its diverse culture and traditions. One of the most well-known traditions Louisiana culture is Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is music, parades, picnics, floats, and excitement for the entire family to enjoy. Everyone is usually wearing purple, green, and gold colors, and people are adorned with long colorful beads and goodies that are caught from the beautiful decorated floats. During Mardi Gras, most families sit on the ground throwing balls, playing music, having a picnic, and watching crowds of people walk between the floats.
For example: An Areyto is a Taino Festival usually followed by a birth, death, victory or defeat. During Areyto (like many socio-religious festivals) food plays an important part. Typically, the menu would consist of roast “jutias” (baby pig), chili peppers, fried fish, shellfish, root vegetables, yautias (similar to a potato or yams), and an alcoholic drink made from fermented corn juice may have been offered. (Balletto, 2007) From the period of slavery to present day special foods are offered on special occasions or holidays such as Christmas and Easter. Sorrel (hibiscus Sabdriffa), an annual plant also call rosell, is used during the Christmas season celebration.
A lot of these leaders were born into slavery and escaped, passing on powerful messages to the people to come together and fight for their rights. I found Fredrick Douglas to be a good example of one who was born into slavery. He had a slave mom and a white dad that resulted in him being sent to another plantation to be a servant because of his color. In 1838, Douglas escaped and became part of an Anti-Slavery Society in 1841. He gave a powerful speech on the fourth of July addressing his fellow African Americans called ‘What, to the Slave, is the Fourth of July.’ He portrays how all of America celebrates Independence Day with their political freedom.
He is held captive in West Africa for seven months and then sold to British slavers, who shipped him to Barbados and then took him to Virginia. After serving a British naval officer, he is sold to a Quaker merchant from Philadelphia who allowed him to purchase his freedom in 1766. The story is credible because he describes situations and mentions the people from his tribe in Africa. He refers to several places he has traveled to and his family before he was taken from them. Equiano appeals to the reader’s emotions when stating the “necessary tubs, into which the children fell and were almost suffocated.” There are “several brothers who were sold who in the sale were sold in different lots; and it was very moving on this occasion to see and hear their cries at parting.” He discusses his bittersweet happiness after his kidnapping when he is saddened to be taken from his family, yet happy to have new experiences and learn about Christianity.
When looking at the life on City Road (‘The Street’, 2009) and observing what happens throughout the course of a day, it is clear that the road is used by a variety of people for many different reasons. City Road has local shops up and down both sides, covering a large range of ethnic cultures. There are food shops, clothe shops, tailoring shops, a sport centre, which on the weekend turns into a market and local newsagents. Recently on City Road, a Tesco convenience store has been opened which to some has proven to be very popular and convenient but for others, it has made life quite difficult. Some of the local shops have been passed down through generations and a shop with such a large market chain attached to it has put many local businesses out of pocket.
Whether you’ve heard the song or have actually been in one of their buildings, you have most likely heard about the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). The YMCA has been around for over 160 years and has grown into one of the most well known nonprofit organizations in the world. In the U.S., the YMCA is comprised of YMCA of the USA, a national resource office, and more than 2,600 YMCAs with approximately 20,000 fulltime staff and 500,000 volunteers in 10,000 communities across the country. Worldwide, the YMCA serves more than 45 million people in 124 countries (YMCA.net). Though the YMCA is a popular place to work out at, you might not have known about the many programs and services that it offers.
Today there are about 350,000 Quakers in the world. Quakers worship in "meetings for worship", and at other times these meetings also decide what Quakers should do. Anyone can go to a Quaker meeting, because most Quakers think that everyone is equal,
Belkov Do not fail In my family we have a ritual to go from childhood to adult at the confirmation. When a child get confirmed there is a big celebration party after the church. During this party there will be three tasks that the child has to complete to become an adul: Light a cigar, drink a glass of cognac, and last tie their own tie. This ritual has been going on for many years, and I went through it too thirteen years ago. The day started with all my family and I went to the church where I would get confirmed, a two hour long ceremony.
After WWII, the GI Bill brought an enormous influx of men into the college system. Some schools found themselves with up to forty Greek organizations with at least fifty members each. It was also mainly with this influx that a tradition of hazing proliferated. Hazing is a term used to describe various rituals and other activities involving harassment, abuse or humiliation used as a way of initiating a person into a group. Since the late 19th century, the Penn State fraternity and sorority community has been an integral part of life for thousands of students, alumni, faculty, staff and State College community members.
