The Notorious Woodstock Woodstock, also known as the “Three Days of Peace and Music” was thought to be the peak of the musical revolution of the 60’s. The Festival had been hyped virtually all summer long over the radio. Woodstock was located in upstate New York August 15th-18th 1969 and drew in large crowds from all over the nation. In the following research I will show the history of Woodstock and the great impact that it had on the people who organized it, attended and those who performed. (Rosenberg, 2011, para.
The beginning of the movie shows how Elliot Tiber brings the creators of Woodstock to their town, to check if they can have the concert there. When the news hits that it will be in his town on Max Yasgur’s farm the hippies start to flock in the area. On Wednesday, August 13, 1969 there were 60,000 people that showed up on the big open farm in front of the 75-foot stage. Then on Friday the streets and nearest highway were blocked by people parking their cars and walking to the concert. At this point there were 500,000 people at the concert and bands had to be flown in by helicopter (About Woodstock 1969).
The continuous rising demand enforces the supply to increase in value and this is catastrophic for most African countries. In Asia it’s a similar story however at a later stage as majority of the rapid growth in population has occurred and now countries such as India and China have gigantic populations with both powerhouses exceeding 1.2 billion people as presented on figure 2. This in itself contributes heavily to food insecurity as the sheer number of people suggests major demand and so insufficient capacity to cope. Due to the rapidly increasing and already extremely high number of people there are other consequences that are tied in which relate to food insecurity, for example transport, dependent on how good, determines the level of distribution. Also literacy rates comes under this as greater number of children which suggests a very high demand for education which in some of these fast growing countries is a luxury and so implies lower literacy rates on average and so leads on to lower quality jobs and pay which therefore indicates dependent for food and not secure.
(21 marks) The massive increase in productivity and the technology of modern society’s resources, in more developed countries, have created new risks. Many of these risks involve harm to the environment and its consequences for humanity, such as global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions from industry. Green crime is seen as a global crime because it is harm done to other species or aspects of the environment such as the air, water supplies, the ocean and the rainforest are increasingly seen as impacting negatively on the quality and future of human life wherever it is in the world. Also, It is carried out by powerful interests particularly TNCs with the corporation of nation states and local wealthy elites which another reason why it is a form of global crime. A more radical approach to green criminology starts from the idea of harm rather than criminal law.
And they also have a long history for their struggles with the new settlers. In this research I will focus on the Native Americans of the western part of the United States and their history, especially the time of the removal, around the nineteenth century. I will divide my research into two main parts. In the first part I will talk about every part of the western Native Americans’ locations, their geography and an overview of the changes that were brought into them after the European colonization. In my second part I will focus of the time of their history of their removal to the Indian territories and reservations, which we are currently studying in class.
Tickets bought three days in advance were $18, the price at the gate was $24. Woodstock began at exactly 5:07 pm on Friday August 15, 1969. Richie Havens began the festival with “Minstel From Gault Q”. My mom and dad were 2 of about 400,000 people that came on to the 600 acre farm of Max Yasgur in Bethel, NY that day. My mom says Yasgur should of offered his farm up for the sake of the cause but in
In 1998, CNN News featured a story that was a bit unusual. Westboro Baptist Church, located in Topeka, Kansas, was brought into the media spotlight by public interest in something a bit unusual: Protesting a funeral. The congregation of Westboro Baptist gathered to picket the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a young man from Wyoming who was beaten to death by two other men because of his homosexuality. Since then, the church has become well known for all of their controversial protests around the united states. The church estimates that WBC has conducted over 30,000 pickets, in all 50 states, in over 500 cities and towns.
Our democracy is based on freedom, with that comes equality. All people should be treated the same, have the same entitlements under the laws of this nation and be subjected to the same punishments. This country was founded on the idea of freedom, by limiting citizens that right we are destroying the sole foundation of our nation. The right to vote in democracy should be extended to all citizens. Denying a citizen the right to vote for
This controversy continued throughout the 60’s. The latter part of that decade brought “The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair” referred to as “An Aquarian Exposition, Three Days of Peace and Music” (qtd. in “World,” par 1). Held on a dairy farm in the Catskills in Aug. 1969 it faced many adversities, yet managed to remain calm and non-violent. Twenty-five of the world’s top performed on the bill; 400,000 young people attended the massively ill prepared, and grossly under supplied festival.
