    The Aztecs: Barbarians, or Brilliant?Submitted byJohn NonomenEl Centro CollegeClass 1301, Section 52245, Winter Term 2016Total Word Count: 2252The term “Aztec” refers to the American Indian empire that dominated central Mexico (also known as Mesoamerica) when Hernán Cortés arrived on the shores of the Yucatán peninsula in 1519. Whenever we hear the term “Aztec” many people usually imagine a culture that was extremely violent and militaristic, a culture full of human sacrifice and cannibalism. The idea of the Aztecs as cannibals, savages, and generally uncivilized peoples has its origins with the conquest of the Aztecs by Cortés and Spanish colonists in the sixteenth century, who used such allegations as justifications for…

  • The Struggle for Mastery of Europe

    The first Italian War, 1494-98, was caused by Ludovico Sforza of Milan, seeking an ally against the Republic of Venice. He found an ally, Charles VIII of France, and convinced him to invade Italy. In 1494, Ferdinand I of Naples died, and thus Charles VIII invaded Italy, starting at the peninsula with 25,000 men. From there onwards the French took Italy unopposed — until their taking of Naples, which provoked a reaction, and thus the League of Venice was formed against them, cutting off Charles’ army from France. In the Battle of Fornovo, Charles was forced to withdraw back to France, and Ludovico, having betrayed France in Fornovo, retained his…

The resources available in a geographic area depend on local climatic and seasonal conditions, forcing such societies to keep moving. It is thus that the Western Shoshone lived in a large area around the arid Great Basin and Great Plains, spread out over present-day California, Nevada, and Utah. Also known as The Snake, the Shoshone is related to the Paiutes, Comanches, and Utes with whom they share many language…

    Scholars have argued that if the rivalry would have continued then the idea of the unification of Germany would have been impossible to achieve. If Austria continued to be in the union it would have been impossible for the unification of German to be a reality and therefore the only way to achieve unification was simply the elimination of Austria from the union through compulsion (Merkl 33). When Otto Von Bismarck came into power he believed in the inevitable unification of German with Prussia as its leader. Therefore he went ahead with his plan and drove out Austria from interfering with the affairs of German. The reason behind his advocating…

These authors interpret silence in diverse ways, although they generally agree that silence is a powerful means of cultural assimilation that no minority group should condone. Silence can be a mark of social control or resistance, and people refuse to accept silence through developing and using their own languages privately and publicly or insisting to preserve their native languages. these are actions that are empowering, because the oppressed expresses to the rest of the society that they exist and intend to survive with…

  • Which ethnic groups claimed to have discovered the new world

    Columbus is given credit probably because it was a well-communicated, planned and documented voyage. These may not have been possible for the earlier explorers. There are not enough records that add substance to their claim and except the Phoenicians who documented their travels in useful inscriptions. very few left any written records for their efforts.In 1872, on a plantation in Brazil, a stone, covered with strange carvings, was found in a field. The carvings were later identified as Phoenician writing, telling of a ship blown off course and landing in a strange, new land, some 2500 years earlier, after returning from a trip to the Middle East.

    Personal ment What do you want to do when you grow up It is the requisite question any adult asks every child. As a youngster the answer waseasy.

  • Spanish Golden Age Painting

    From a political point of view the Spanish Golden Age lasted from the mid fifteenth till the late sixteenth centuries, but paradoxically reached a cultural and artistic climax when the country was in a state of political and economic decline, between the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

  • War Photography

    But at its most simple, the photograph (whether it be of a flower in bloom or of a man being shot) is seen as authentic because it shows, most of the time at least, what it literally purports to show. Take one of the most famous war photographs ever taken:Another definition is in order here. The dictionary defines propaganda as 1. the systematic propagation of a doctrine or cause. 2. Material disseminated by the advocates of a doctrine or cause (American, 2003).

This disillusionment is reflected by Antonio when his mind is torn apart between the understanding of Christianity and the ambiguous forms of dark gods. According to Britee, a disillusionment with the whole of Christianity is revealed (Britee, 25).

    Hegemony and transculturation were majorly brought about by the colonization and importation of the slaves to provide labor in Latin America. European entry had both economic and political motivations, but also allowed cultural contact and exchange among Europe, Africa and America (Chasteen 6-118). Colonization by the European resulted to the enslavement of the natives to work for the Spaniards who provided all orders concerning the activities to be carried out. The main aim of the colonizers was to establish administrative dependency in which the local people were directly ruled. They also imposed social-cultural, religious and linguistic structures on the conquered population. They believed that their morals and values were superior.…

Nevertheless, one of the essay’s major points is to suggest that what is seen as the differentiating performance from performativity, and how those two perspectives relate to language. Moreover, the focus of this critical study is on the fact that the ‘no’ of a woman is restrained by the cultural demands and expectations of femininity (Kullick 494).

    The word Guerrilla means ‘small war’. The tactics used in this technique of war include the small scale raids, ambushes and attacks. During ancient times, this kind of strategy was used by the smaller tribes, when fighting against a large empire. One of such examples is the struggle of Rome against the Spanish tribes, for over a period of one century. It was proposed in this theory that depending upon the circumstances, there may be shifting between these phases, in either direction. Moreover, these phases may not take place uniformly all over the country. In a classic three-phased Maoist model, there is the description of a strong unified guerrilla group,…

  • Factors influencing Language and Literacy

    With the shift to understanding the importance of culture in teaching English as a second language, teachers are faced with new challenges when teaching adults.Language is complex, far more than just making language and grammar choices. For instance, try translating the phrase “Linguists have been interested in several aspects of language variations” into Spanish, and then translating the Spanish back to English: Los lingüistas han estado interesados en varios aspectos de la variación de la lengua. The translation reads: “The linguists have been interested in various aspects of the variation of the tongue.” That might be quite true because the tongue has a great deal to do with forming words,…

  • Do Latino Migrant and seasonal farm workers have a higher risk of contracting cancer than other Latinos living in the US

    In addition, a failure to interpret the potential and cancer causing hazards that often accompanies the farm task could be attributed to the lack of knowledge by the Latinos on such threats.

    Visiting the Council In the end of working day it was very crowded next to the building of our Council, so I could observe some interesting individuals and actions. First of all, there was a small group of aged men, who were discussing some recent political issues, such as the latest situation in Congress and international policy of our President George W. Bush. They spent quite a lot of time next to the building and then got slowly dissolved in the crowd of passers by. Also, I could observe three guys, who were distributing some promotion materials of a new brand of water for domestic use. They were saying that…

  • The Formation of Islamic Art and the Amalgamation of Different Cultural

     “Arts of the Islamic World” and “Islamic art” are significant phrases which refer to the various artistic traditions which have flourished since the advent of Islam across a vast geographic area ranging from southern Spain and North Africa to the islands of Southeast Asia in the late seventh century. (Arts of the Islamic World 2008). One most relevant factor about the formation of Islamic art has been the influence of the varied culture of the world on its formation. “The cultural influences ranged from Byzantine (inherited when the Ottomans made Constantinople their capital in 1453), to Italian, French, Central Asian, Persian and Arab.” (Sajoo 2001, p. 16-18).

  • An Analysis of the Common Theme of Physical Violence in A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies and Titus Andronicus

    "A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies" depicts colonization and Europeanization of the American Indians by Spaniards. Euroamerican settlement of the West accelerated, the government abandoned gradualism in favor of comprehensive programs for assimilation. The savage, noble or ignoble, was judged capable of civilization. Those who embraced it would be welcomed into mainstream society. Those who balked would nevertheless be compelled to behave. In a short time, no more than a generation, the old ways would die out. The savage would disappear with the passing of the frontier. Instead of a geographical expression, the West became, in the imaginations of Americans stranded in the cities and towns, a…

  • Opportunities and Limitations of the Trade Market

    It is an integrated process through of creating value for customers and build strong customer relationships to capture value from customers in return (IMA, 2010).International marketing refers to marketing outside the immediate country of origin or registration of a given organization. It so happens that there is currently a lot of competition for tourists from almost all countries in the world. To help improve their chances of capturing tourists, countries are only too willing to give their profiles to help them achieve this end (Pricken, 2008, p 24)This paper sets out to discuss the application and analysis of the profile of France with specific regard to the tourism industry.

    History provides a glimpse of the diversity of California’s inhabitants, including the Native Americans, Chinese and Japanese. Several cultures prevail in the land and throughout the history of California different government had attempted to subdue its original people. Let us consider the succession of the most famous explorations in California.Prehistoricinhabitants of California practiced complex religions, hunted with arrowheads made of flint, and subsisted largely on the abundant available acorns supplemented by numerous small animals. coastal peoples ate fish and shellfish. Indigenous Californians often lived in small communities of about 150 people. This was the setting when the Europeans first set foot in California. Most historians agree that Portuguese-born Juan Rodriquez…

"Bulls also played an important role in the religious ceremonies of the Iberian tribes living in Spain in prehistoric times. While religious bull cults go back to Iberians, it was Greek and Roman influences that converted it into a spectacle." (Quijote, 2001)Bullfighting was a sport or a tradition among the elite or upper class of the society in ancient times. However, it was stopped as it was thought to be a bad influence on the public. At this time, it was not…

  • Supply chain management definition

    The service industry relies heavily on the customer experience as it is subjective and therefore introduces complexities into the supply chain. These complexities arise from the variety of goods and services demand from the customer, as they are not uniform in their demand.Therefore the value of the supply chain always starts with customer, as they want shorter times to market for new goods and services. The customer also wants some level of customisation and personalisation to their circumstances which means the service organisation has to reduce its inventories and keep lower stock to prevent losses from unsold stock. Lower unit costs allow the service organisation to pass on a cost…

  • Linguistic Commentary

    As Professor Christopher John Poutain (2005) explains it, there can be three types of linguistic acceptable variations: "Acceptability may vary with a number of factors, including place (DIATOPIC variation), social group (DIASTRATIC variation) or time (DIACHRONIC variation)." In the present case, we have a diastratic variation as the boss represents a social group a lot different from the workers’ group. We can see that their Spanish is quite different even though they seem to understand each other very well. As we know, the concept of linguistic competence means in pragmatic terms that there is no register better than others as long as communication is established among them.In this fragment we…

  • The Heptameron by Marguerite de Navarre

    Also, blood was considered the main humor out of the four, the three others being phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile, and a fine balance between all four was necessary in an individual’s body in order to ensure good health. Different blood vessels were linked with different organs: the vein in the right hand was linked to the liver, and blood was drained from it in case of liver disorders, as we see in the instance of Jean-Pierre: the doctors, "seeing his face had gone yellow, considered he was suffering from an obstruction in the liver, and prescribed a bleeding."The lovelorn man’s jaundiced skin is interpreted as a liver disease,…

  • Literature on Different Party Ideologies

    (2001: P.7)Writers like Walter Greenwwood and Lewis Jones are a perfect example of such writers whose works were representing certain ideologies that were held by particular parties and they mainly wrote about how these ideologies affected the working class community. Lewis, for instance, ‘was a strong Communist and he actively participated in marches of the unemployed during the 1930s’ (Morgan, 1998: P.238).His novel ‘We Live’ looks into the characters of human relationships with the vivid accounts of the social and industrial struggles at that time. ‘We Live’ which was published after his death in 1939 was an extra-ordinary saga of the miners from Black Friday in 1921 down to the…

  • Common law and Civil law

    The merging of these courts with the common law courts is thus what laid a framework for the present-day judicial system in America. The common laws subject all citizens to similar laws, regardless of their official ranks, or lack of.At the same time, the extent to which the government exercises its powers is dependent on the limitations of the common laws. Thus, the common law can be viewed at as a legal system development of the Anglo-Saxon people (Laeuchli, 2007). On the other hand, the civil system of law is dominant in the European countries that were former French or Spanish colonies. One of the contrasting differences between the common…

  • Musical Orientalism

    Imitation aims to duplicate. musical Orientalism has little to do with the objective conditions of non-Western musical practices-rather, it brings something new into being. Here is a list of Orientalist devices, many of which can be applied indiscriminately as markers of cultural difference.Orientalism describes the representation of the Eastern Other to the Western Self. it is not an impartial account of cultural difference, it is alternity understood in terms of fear and desire, terror and lack.Orientalism is never quite a case of "anything goes". it is possible to mix signifiers of difference in a confusing manner: for example, it would be possible to write a calypso using Liszt’s "Hungarian" scale.…

  • Immigrant Policies in America

    Immigration in modern day America is just as strong as it was when America was formed. Initiations by the American government such as the green card lottery are a means of attracting fresh faces to this already diverse country. The immigration debate is one of the biggest in America. Some native-born Americans forget that their ancestors were once immigrants and tend to harbor hostility towards new immigrants while others are more accepting. It is obvious that Americans have mixed feelings about immigration but many do not realize that immigrants also share mixed feelings about starting a new life in America.Modern day America is often referred to as a melting pot…

  • Economics of Slavery and its Impact on Nation

    Economics of Slavery and its Impact on Nation Slavery was an economic factor in America since its colonization by European powers in the 16th and 17th centuries. The colonies were originally worked through the indenture system (where European servants worked for a number of years for free, and then gained citizenship in the country).
