The Grapes of Wrath

...The novel “The Grapes of Wrath” that is written by John Steinbeck is a great novel that talks about the horrors of the Great depression as it probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America. The novel also talks about the lives of an ordinary people who are starving to preserve their humanity in the face of the social and economic desperation. When the Jaods lose their tenant farm in Oklahoma they join thousands of others, on the road going to California to find a better life. Each night society is created, leaders are chosen, and the rates of violence are increasing. John Steinbeck uses symbolism in his novel to show that people in difficult situations start to treat each other badly in order to protect their own interests. The major symbols that the author used in his novel are the turtle, the insects, the pregnancy of Rose of Sharon and the dead child. First, in page 20 it said that as the embankment got steeper the more the turtle showed work to successes in the first challenge. The road represents the steep embankment to those migrant people because they had to cross two thousand miles in order to get California. Along the road the major obstacle that faced them was that they have to take care of their cars because they were old. They were supposed to spend the money on themselves but it turned out that they have spent most of it on the cars. Second, when the turtle was crossing the road she was slow. That’s the......

Psychologist from Portugal

...orientation and civil status in any aspect of either questionnaire were found. Key words: self-concept, sexual self-concept. Self-concept is an aspect of psychology which has become a subject of considerable research and applications to a wide variety of practical problems (Lynch, Norem-Hebeisen & Gergen, 1981). This area of research gives the contribution to understand the importance of the experiences in each chapter of life. The construction process of self or the self-concept, begins in infancy, is something of extreme importance for the balance and harmony in the future development, that will express in an adequacy the individual in the inter and intra personal contexts. Self-concept is the cognitive appraisal integrated across various dimensions that individuals attribute to themselves. To think about self-concept is to reflect about the question of being/feeling (who I am? How do I feel?). It is the proper identity, the symbols and meanings that all people have. ( Attitudes formed from experiences allow the individual to make an evaluation of him/her self, influencing the way how the individual manages aspects of his/her life, such as sexual life. Indeed, for each sexual episode the individual brings his/hers attitudes and values,......

Varieties of English

...Varieties of English These refer to the different forms of English spoken by English speakers all over the world, in terms of pronunciation, grammatical features and distinct vocabularies. They vary from region to region and are also dependent on the social and educational standing. All over the world, English is spoken in most languages, and even though the language is the same, it does not necessarily mean that everything about it is the same. What may look like a slightly difference, is actually a huge one. Pronunciation, grammar and vocabularies can make a language seem to change completely! Standard varieties of English These are the varieties of English that have become standard or most recognized and used in the majority of the world. The main two are: English in England and American English. English in England Despite this being the origin of the English language, it does not mean the language is the same everywhere in England. The significant difference is in the pronunciation, as the accent and pronunciation of English in Britain is different from the one in Scotland, Wales and Ireland. American English When talking about American English, this is referring to mainly North America because in South America English is not the national language spoken. In North America, the accents of Canadians differ from Americans from the United States, Texas and so on. The largest difference is in American English and African American English, which is a sort...

History of Portugals

...Portugal officially the Portuguese Republic (Portuguese: República Portuguesa), is a country located in Southwestern Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula. It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south and by Spain to the north and east. Apart from continental Portugal, the Portuguese Republic holds sovereignty over the Atlantic archipelagos of Azores and Madeira, which are autonomous regions of Portugal. The country is named after its second largest city, Porto, whose Latin name was Portus Cale The land within the borders of the current Portuguese Republic has been continually fought over and settled since prehistoric times. After a period of Roman rule followed by Visigothic and Suebian domination, in the 8th century most of the Iberian Peninsula was conquered by Moorish invaders professing Islam, who were later expelled by the Knights Templar. During the Christian Reconquista, Portugal established itself as an independent kingdom from Galicia in 1139.[9] In the 15th and 16th centuries, as the result of pioneering the Age of Discovery, Portugal expandedwestern influence and established the first global empire,[10] becoming one of the world's major economic, political and military powers. The Portuguese Empire was the longest-lived of the modern European colonial empires, spanning almost 600 years, from the capture of Ceuta in 1415 to the handover of Macau in 1999 and granting of sovereignty to East Timor in 2002.......

Tourism in Portugal

...Boost tourism innovation Founded in 2008 with the aim to build a ”super tourism innovation company”, Boost Tourism has rapidly grown from a little one-shop, one-location tourism operator to a highly profitable venture, employing 20 people and operating in a number of Portugal's most important tourist cities. It now offers one of the widest variety of activities and innovative ways to explore the city in the sightseeing market. Focusing on both individual tourists and small groups, as well as large corporate groups of up to 500-or-so people has helped Boost Tourism to achieve positive cashflows all year round – an impressive feat for a company operating in the highly seasonal tourism market. The emphasis of the company is to invest in the newest technologies and means of trasportation and combine those with imaginative activities to offer their customer the best possible tourism experience in Portugal. History The company was originally founded aroud the concept of sightseeing in Lisbon by the so-called GoCars, which are small three-wheeled, easy-to-drive convertibles. Starting in a little shop in downtown Lisbon, the fouders quickly realized the GoCar to be a lucrative venture, recording first-quarter profit beyond their wildest dreams. However, the nature of the tourism industry quickly became apparent when nearing wintertime, as profits shrunk month by month, eventually to below the break-even point. At this point the founders reasoned that they had to either......

...Christopher James Heart of Darkness Quote Reflection Since I was not here on the day we wrote quotes in class I have chosen a quote to reflect on it. “The word ‘ivory’ rang in the air, was whispered, was sighed. You would think they were praying to it. A taint of imbecile rapacity blew through it all, like a whiff from some corpse. By Jove! I’ve never seen anything so unreal in my life. And outside, the silent wilderness surrounding this cleared speck on the earth struck me as something great and invincible, like evil or truth, waiting patiently for the passing away of this fantastic invasion.”(page72) This quote offers Marlow’s first impression of the Central Station. The word “ivory” seems to be something he hears all too often now that he works for this company. To them, it is far more than just the tusk of an elephant or rhinoceros; it represents an economic freedom that companies have never seen or experienced. These companies are running amuck doing as they please with no thought of how their actions affect the people or animals of Africa they simply only care about “Ivory” and its economic value. Marlow’s reference to a decaying corpse is both literal and figurative: elephants and the African people both die as a result of the European’s pursuit for ivory and the entire enterprise of the ivory trade is just rotten at the core. This is true in the cruelties and the greed that are both part of a greater evil of how money corrupts the soul of every human,......

...The Grapes Impact Worldwide Through History The Grapes Impact Worldwide Through History Vitis vinifera, or more commonly known as the grape, is a fruit that is put to good use every day throughout the world. Grape production continues to increase every year around the globe to support the high demand that grapes continue to create. Most of the production is used to make wine, but it is also used for table, and raisin grape production (Rieger 2004). The numerous uses for the grape have been discovered and perfected throughout history. The sweetness of the berry and the ability to produce wine from it has kept it cultivated and put to use for over nine thousand years. The natural history and geological origin of the vitis vinifera is what caused the global spread and economic success of the grape which still is still in high demand today. The original cultivation and domestication of the grape vine is not absolute certain. The first archeological evidence of the grape dates all the way back to the Bronze Age. A clay vase with wine residue was found as well as grape seeds. These artifacts were discovered around the Mediterranean area which is thought to be the original origin (Pastor 2010). Viticulture started to spread from its original location all over the Mediterranean and up through Europe. It started to spread rapidly through France around fifth century B.C. After introduced to this area it continued to spread all over Europe and over the Middle East. At this......

Grapes of Wrath

...The Grapes of Wrath directed by John Ford is a 1940 film based on the Pulitzer winning novel by John Steinbeck. It tells the story of the Joads who during the Great Depression in the 1930s were run off their farm in Oklahoma. The film details their journey to California in search of work and a new beginning for their family. This paper will relate the main character Tom Joad to the philosophies of Thomas Hobbes and his theory of the state of nature and government as an artificial creation, and Jim Casy to Jean Jacques Rousseau’s theory of government and society as inhibitors of our natural freedoms. The Grapes of Wrath Tom Joad, played by Henry Fonda in the 1940 drama film Grapes of Wrath, is the main character who opens the movie returning to his home in Oklahoma after serving four years in prison for manslaughter. On the way he runs into Jim Casy, the former preacher who warns Tom that most sharecroppers have been evicted due to the effects of the depression. Once finding his family’s farm deserted, he finds them at his uncle’s farm preparing to also leave the next day for California in hopes of finding work and a brighter future. As they begin their treacherous journey across Route 66, the Joads and Casy endure many hardships. Grandpa, who didn’t want to leave his land, dies and is buried alongside the road. Then they run into a man who informs them that there is no work in California, but with not feeling they had any other options, they carry on with hope that......

Old Testament Connections from Grapes of Wrath

...John Steinbeck makes many Biblical allusions in his book The Grapes of Wrath. Many of these connections are on a small layer, perhaps applying to only one individual. Jim Casy, the Christ figure, is one example of an allusion from the New Testament. However, the whole book can be seen as a Biblical allusion to the story of the Exodus and the life of Moses. Not only does the story of the fictional Joad family relate to the Exodus, but the story of the Okies and the great migration that took place during the Dust Bowl in the 1930’s. This compelling story of the migrants can be divided into three parts: the oppression, the exodus, and the Promised Land. The chronicle of the Exodus begins with the Hebrews being enslaved to the Egyptians. Because of this, God sent ten plagues to Egypt. After the tenth plague, the pharaoh agreed to let the Hebrews become free and their journey across the desert is known as the Exodus. Thus the modern word exodus refers to any mass migration or departure of a large group of people. The excursion of the migrant workers can be described as a modern day exodus (compared to time-period of the Biblical story). Like the Hebrews, the Joad family and the rest of the migrants end up fleeing from their oppressors, which happens to be the banks. The period of time when the Okies use Route 66 as a way to move cross-country is the true exodus of the story, as it is a migration of a people. The migrants reaching California can be compared to the Hebrews finally......

...gentlemen, It is a great pleasure to have been invited to the IFAC Annual Conference, and to come to this faraway and very beautiful land of New Zealand. I want to express my personal gratitude to the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants for their hospitality. As IFAC completes its first year of operation under a new and rigorous constitution, this week provides an important opportunity for all of you to reflect on how far IFAC has travelled and to determine what distance remains. In the same way, my objective today is to bring Council members up to date on the many positive developments that have occurred since your meeting in Paris last year, on where the Public Interest Oversight Board stands right now, and where it intends to go from here. A year ago IFAC reaffirmed its unanimous support for constitutional reforms that included, among other important matters, the creation of the Public Interest Oversight Board. Even more important was the strong signal that the new entity should be launched as quickly as possible. This task fell to the same key groups responsible for the final formulation of IFAC reforms, and was executed by the end of February 2005. This was an impressive achievement considering the many players involved, the importance of the task, and the need for full consensus at each stage. The first step was for members of the Monitoring Group – the International Organization of Securities Commissions, the Financial Stability Forum, the Basel Committee,......
