Fascination
The line was long and crowded; the countless energized bodies seemed to snake around pylon after pylon with out an end in sight. You could see bobbing heads moving left to right moving opposite of the person in front and everyone hoping to see the end, the end to the tiresome wait. You could see children of all ages some playing with hand held video games others hearing music, their parents and single adults contained their excitement in meaningless conversations. But still slight half step movements would trickle down the line, the wait reminded me of the countless times I would spend as a child waiting to cross the bridge from Juarez to El Paso after a family gathering. The only difference was there was no smell of hot burning motor oil and no fumes of poisonous carbon dioxide gas emitting from old Chevys and Fords. Finally, the moment my family and I so diligently and patiently awaited for, the door, our finish line. I clearly remember the eight-foot squeaky double doors, which had a lustrous shine; the glass had a mirror fish that even Superman could not penetrate with his x-ray vision, were at our reach. As we entered with heart pounding excitement the type of excitement you feel as you drop from long never ending rollercoaster, I gasp not knowing what I would face next. As I entered my excitement was squashed as I immediately saw the one line fork into 5 other endless lines with the same people from the previous room now scattered throughout the room. We slowly cleared the second room and noticed that these double doors led to the outside. I cautiously walked out and immediately was welcomed by blinding sunlight, I immediately raised my hand to shield my eyes when I heard a calm “wow” coming from my daughter’s delicate voice. As I look up to mimic her stare, I was engulfed with the same amazement as her, in big blue bold letters I…...

...Lakesha London Professor: Dana Ferrea Class: Art Appreciation 1301 September 29, 2012 Cabinet Makers The painting and artists I am going to discuss is "The Cabinet Markers" by Jacob Lawrence (1957). In this portrait of Jacob Lawrence not only represent someone building cabinet this portrait represent many things that had took over a lifetime and especially in 50’s. The style of this portrait is systematic and Lawrence has a unique feel to the portrait. Jacob Lawrence was a witness to so much of American reconstruction and his artwork is rich with ideas that he had a firsthand insight on. He sets a style all of his own by using real life images in an abstract way; he uses brilliant colors and creative detail in his paintings. There is a lot of movement in his work with the change of the decades and his messages are clear. (Evergreen) This portrait can be very tricking it but when looking at art you have to have an open mind. The visual elements that someone might see are that Jacob Lawrence is painting a portrait of someone building something. In this portrait you will see nails like it’s in the guy pockets, but I think that it represent people who are on a ship that’s sailing away for freedom. The builder can also represent that he are a working class man and he are ready for a change. In the portrait you notice a lot of tools and if you think about it these tools are the same as today and that mean they haven’t change. The tool can represent that maybe some......

...(1881-1973) 'Factory, Horta de Ebbo', 1909 (oil on canvas) Cubism was a truly revolutionary style of modern art developed by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braques. It was the first style of abstract art which evolved at the beginning of the 20th century in response to a world that was changing with unprecedented speed. Cubism was an attempt by artists to revitalise the tired traditions of Western art which they believed had run their course. The Cubists challenged conventional forms of representation, such as perspective, which had been the rule since the Renaissance. Their aim was to develop a new way of seeing which reflected the modern age. POP ART Andy Warhol – Mickey maus the early morning of July 18 in Stockholm, a major theft occurred.

...Dr. Luciano English 1301-169 October 9, 2013 Going Out in Flames Imagine this, you're in class at school and you hear what you think is firecrackers. All of the sudden your teacher comes running in the room and is telling everyone to hide under their desk and not to make a sound. That is what happened to hundreds of students at Columbine High School in Colorado. The two boys killed 12 students, 1 teacher and injured 21 others. Even though 34 people were physically affected by the boys, many others were emotionally effected. The Columbine Shooting on April 20, 1999, brought forth many issues that needed to be handled; school safety and anti-bullying were the first things brought forth by the police. According to the New York Times, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had planned this attack a year in advance. The two watched over the cafeteria crowds to determine the best time for their attack. “The bottom line of this thing is they wanted to do as much damage as they could possibly do, and destroy the school and destroy as many children as they could, and go out in flames,” Sheriff Stone said. On April 20, Adolf Hitler’s birthday, the two students made history for the deadliest school shooting ever recorded. In total, there were 15 deaths including Harris and Klebold, with an additional 21 injured. They had an assortment of guns and bombs, which included a propane tank bomb, which made investigators believe they had help. Even though there were no additional suspects,......

...primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Although he was initially labeled a Fauve (wild beast), by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art. Henri Matisse uses Fauvism as a style began around 1900 and continued beyond 1910. The movement as such lasted only a few years, 1904–1908, and had three exhibitions. (Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionisms.

Purpose: Victor S. Clark outlines the economic influences of the expansion of manufactures upon the political sentiment in America before the Civil War. He discusses the role of political institutions in the shaping of our economic progress, with the intent to show that the rise in manufactures in the United States during this time brought a stronger form of centralized government that would favor an increase in public intervention of the ecomic activities of individuals. Ultimately he encourages us to believe this was one of the main causes for Civil War in the US during this time. Summary: In the few decades before the Civil War, many Americans relied primarily on the household goods they could produce or acquire locally. Without the need for regulation of these small items, sentiment in the United States leaned towards the idea that people could manage these tasks on their own. However, after the revolution these attitudes began to change with the rise in manufactures and the expansion towards the south. Crops such as tobacco, sugar, and cotton were just a few of the commodities that people in the US and overseas desired for. Inevitably, this caused people to rethink where power should lie to maintain the idea that equality existed among the entire population. From start...

With then use of polka dots and motifs in her paintings to make wonderful works of art. Watercolors are also a bonus when looking at an art display as it can be very vivid and in high school I enjoyed doing thing that's involved the same things that she does. Pastels and Oils were also fun to use and were some personal favorites that make art a fun thing to do that someone who may not be interested in doing will like it. In one of her paintings from her exhibit, Infinite Obsession, she uses a wide variety of colors and polka dots. There are many different things that one could decipher about this painting but it almost looks like it could be a city or galaxy. The colors that stand out the most are green, blue, and red. It features an abundance of varying sights and colors that will wow a person with it being fluid and precise as it doesn't look like someone just threw paint on a board but it looks like someone did the work intentionally with thought and reasoning behind it.

...As a lover of art I tend to find, beauty in everything some way. Whether it be a simple flower out in a field of brown grass, or a pattern that everyone thinks looks too busy. I didn’t realize how the ‘Beauty is all around you’ quote would fit me until I actually started to study it. No, I’m not art major because I can’t draw to save my life, but I found that studying it for a hobby is more relaxing than I thought it would have been. Living in New York City, I was able to go to an art museum every weekend. Look at the different paintings on the wall and feel a different emotion for each. If was funny how an 18x24 painting could make me feel so different about certain things. All a painting is and ever will be, and lines and different stroke one a white canvas if you break it down bit by bit. But together those line and strokes make something beautiful. When I moved from New York I thought I would have to give up that passion for a whole year. I, personally knew that I could do it but then I would be bored on my weekends, something I didn’t want to happen ever especially since I felt I was moving to the middle of nowhere. But I was mistaken when I found out that El Paso had an art museum. That was very shocking news to me, I know not everywhere has an art museum or a museum at all. Recently I was able to visit, I know it’s not good to compare two things together all the time, of course the El Paso art museum isn’t, The Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Whitney Museum of......

...INTRODUCTION In all of human history, art has mirrored life in the community, society, and the world in all its colors, lines, shapes, and forms. The same has been true in the last two centuries, with world events and global trends being reflected in the art movements. The decades from 1900 to the present have seen the human race living in an ever shrinking planet. The 20th century saw a boom in the interchange of ideas, beliefs, values, and lifestyles that continues to bring the citizens of the world closer together. Technological breakthroughs From the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s, the world zoomed into the Electronic. Age in the mid-1900s, then into the present Cyberspace Age. In just over 100 years, humans went from hand-cranked telephones to hands-free mobile phones, from the first automobiles to inter-planetary space vehicles, from local radio broadcasting to international news coverage via satellite, from vaccinations against polio and smallpox to laser surgery. Social, political, and environmental changes There has been migration across the globe, allowing different cultures, languages, skills, and even physical characteristics of different races to intermingle like never before. The 20th century also suffered through two World Wars, and several regional wars in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. There was the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the Asian economic crisis of the 1990s. Considered the modern-day plague, AIDS has......

Op art is a style of abstract art in which lines, forms, and space are organized in such a way as to provide optical illusions of an ambiguous nature, as alternately advancing and receding squares on a flat surface. What is interesting is it gives the viewer the impression of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns. Art Deco is a style of decorative art developed originally in the 1920s with a revival in the 1960s, marked chiefly by geometric motifs, curvilinear forms,......

Our body functions on the "biological clock", this is called the circadian rhythms which is dictated by the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), this allows our body to get into a rhythm, giving our body a timeline so to speak. This is what makes us feel hungry around noon because our body is used to lunch and it also is what makes us sleepy at night time. When our body feels this need to sleep, we begin our phases of sleep. "Going to sleep" is when you lose all awareness of what is around you. The beginning stage the "going to sleep" or "twilight' stage us really just an extreme state of relaxation, compared to what your brain is like when laying on the beach.

...Practical Reflective Paper 1 Joaquin Alejandro Cavazos PTHA-1301-M01 Mrs. Torres Laredo Community College Practical Reflective Paper 1 As a student taking the introduction to physical therapy course my experience in the ambulation practical was quite interesting. It was interesting because this wasn’t my first time being a patient in a clinical environment. Two years ago I was an actual patient when I underwent therapy for my ACL surgery so I was no stranger to crutches and walkers, but using crutches to walk up and down a flight of stairs was something I had never practiced before. It was quite difficult to learn and a bit scary to say the least, but with the help of the PTA students I was able to complete it. Jennifer and Victoria were really helpful and considerate during the process. They safely, and securely placed the gate belt on me and helped me up and down the stairs all the way through. I definitely felt I was in good hands with them, and I know when they treat real patients they will too. Both students seemed very confident and professional they knew what they were doing, and they did an excellent job. Despite me knowing how to properly walk on crutches the way they explained it to me was excellent it was so good I think I’ve gotten even better at it.So for a patient who doesn’t know how to use them I’m confident they will pick it up and learn fairly easy. If they keep this up they are on their way to becoming fully fledged PTA’s. Another good performance I...

The Arts

...Art The Arts play a large role in the expression of inner thoughts and beauty in my life. From dance and music to abstract art our concept of life is shown through the various ways in which we interpret it. We use the Arts as a means of touching that part of us that we cannot reach with Physical Science, Social Science, or any of the Humanities. The arts allow us to be as specific or as abstract as we please. It helps us become closer to ourselves and to others around us. Though there has been a lot of confusion as to what the true definition of “good art” is, how we show others what is going on in our minds and inner souls cannot be judged, graded, criticized or revised by anyone other than ourselves. The arts play a valued role in creating cultures and developing and documenting civilizations. The arts teach us how to communicate through creative expression. Show us how to understand human experiences, past and present. Prepare us to adapt to and respect the ways others think, work, and express themselves. Music, singing, dancing, poetry, and sketching are just a few of the different forms of art that I use to express myself in a way that I enjoy. Because each art discipline appeals to different senses and expresses itself through different media, each adds a special richness to the learning environment. Arts help people Learn to identify, appreciate, and participate in the traditional and non-traditional art forms of their own communities and the communities of......

...Elizabeth Ramos ENGL 1301 Teresa Trevathan Dec. 12, 2014 Television’s Best Moments Television has provided many moments where audiences held their breaths, cheered out loud, got up and danced, or sat there and cried. From the appearance of Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show to the question of “Who shot J.R.?” on Dallas, we have been riveted to the set, watching avidly and discussing what we had seen with others. One series, M*A*S*H, provided one of TV’s best moments with its final episode, titled “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen.” Though this particular episode featured many great moments, the best one would be when Hawkeye Pierce was talking to Dr. Sidney Freedman in a mental hospital. The doctor was trying to discover why Pierce had a mental breakdown, while Pierce was having difficulty in remembering what had happened. Pierce finally recalls that the bus he and others were riding had to pull over to the side of the road to hide from an enemy patrol. Hawkeye yells at a woman to keep her chicken from squawking, fearful that the enemy would find them, only to be stunned when the woman smothers her chicken while trying to keep it quiet. The audience is just as horrified as Hawkeye when he realizes the woman didn’t smother a chicken; she smothered her infant child. This finale episode aired in 1983, and it remained the most watched episode in the history of television until 2010. When looking at modern day programming, the AMC original show Breaking Bad has provided moments on...

...One of the most thrilling opportunities was seeing the Renaissance fair in action. The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned from the 14th century to the 17th. It began in Florence in the Late Middle Ages and later on spread to Europe. The term Renaissance is used loosely to refer to a historical era in which there was a development of linear perspective within the art of painting, and a increasing spread of educational reform. This cultural movement was the bridge between the modern era and the Middle Ages. It was seen as an intellectual pursuit in which social and political upheaval arose. This period is best known for its artistic developments from renowned artist such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Visiting the Faire was such a rewarding and wonderful experience because not only was I able to gain so much information about the period, I was able to learn it through having fun and enjoying myself. There were Men in tights, knights on horses, beautiful and entertaining shows, wonderful food, jousting, and very fun activities. I’d seen various movies such as Lord of the Rings and Dragonheart and ever since I was a kid I’ve always been in love with that period. The various fables of knights and tales of sword fighting always intrigued me. The fact that I was able to witness it first hand was such a fulfilling and wonderful experience! I saw the wardrobe of knights, peasants, and noblemen alike. I was able to see blacksmiths at work and gun, queens, and......
