The most Intense Transit periods

Concerning what this period is set to bring you on a professional level I can already let you know that this Transit will be one of the most intense and beneficial periods of your entire career. This period will allow you to really take off and make great advances in your career and I have a lot of things to tell you about this period so let me start with this first piece of news...

As I told you in my initial pre-reading for you, this period will mark a moment of victory on a professional level. What I sensed about you initially has largely been confirmed and it appears that this victory is in direct relation with new openings and a development towards foreign countries. To be a little more precise about this Transit, you will have a bright idea that you don't yet even suspect and this idea will become very important for you as it will be transformed into a veritable challenge which will help you distinguish yourself and to shine professionally. This idea concerns a project which you have had in mind for a long time now and which you care a great deal about or this may be an old idea in fact which resurfaces. At any rate, I can see that it is something you have already thought about but which hasn't come to anything yet because it quite simply hasn't been the right moment yet. Well, I can tell you that the moment WILL come during this period. I can also see that this project will greatly evolve in comparison to what you have in mind and this will be in large part thanks to someone who you do not yet know but who will play a certain role in this challenge. Another important point is that I see that this Transit will really allow you reach a turning point in your career on many different levels and that you will feel the greatest impact financially. It is however, extremely important that you are fully active during this…...

...The book “The Jungle” was published at 1905 and written by Upton Sinclair. The novel’s main characters Jurgis Rudkus was a Lithuanian immigrant lived in U.S., and the book described the life he experienced while he was working in a meat packing house at Chicago. Jurgis’s family and his fiancée’s family immigrated to the United States from Lithuania; they thought they could have a better life after living in the U.S. At the beginning, they were lucky and found the job in a very short time. It look like everything should be better, however things didn’t develop as they expected.

Into the Jungle

...1. What influence did Thomas Huxley have on Eugene Dubois? Thomas Huxley influenced Eugene by what he described in his famous book “ Evidence as to Man’s Place in Nature” where he stressed the relationship between man and apes. He proposed questions that were to explore the existence of man and his relations to the universe of things. Huxley “s book detailed biological examinations of the first human fossils and comparing them to the apes. This in a way motivated Eugene to want to explore the topic even more so that he can be the one to find the “missing link.” 2. Why did Dubois choose to search in the Dutch East Indies for the missing link and not Africa? Because Asia had the gibbon and the orangutan, which Haeckel had suggested, were more related to humans than the gorillas and chimps found in Africa. Also, there had been a recent fossil ape discovery in India at the time, and so he chose Asia to get a better lead. 3. What evidence did Dubois assemble to support his claim that Pithecanthropus was an intermediate between apes and modern humans? He assembled a 39-page description of the thighbone and the skullcap that he had found in Java. He included many photographs of them, and also provided pictures of ape skulls for comparison. He emphasized on how the close proximity of where these were discovered led him to believe that it was from the same individual. He also elaborated on how these remains had both human-like and ape-like features such......

To What Extent Did Life for Ordinary People Improve in the Late 1940’s -

...In the early 1940’s life was difficult for ordinary and poor people, there was basically no standards or help to improve the quality of lives. This had gone on for a while but it was even worse in the 1940’s because of WWII. This went, not unnoticed but without any sort of plan being made to make it better. The Beveridge report was a breakthrough, and I want to discuss the impact it made ordinary people’s lives and how it improved them in the 1940’s. There were 5 giants in the report Squalor, Ignorance, Want, Idleness and Disease; these were tackled head on by the next government, as Winston Churchill didn’t make any promise to. Ordinary lives were improved massively. They now had the main essentials in life meaning their quality of life was greatly improved and they could at least have the comfort of knowing that in the worst case scenario they would be looked after and could live without as much stress. The Beveridge Report was published on 2nd December 1942, written by Sir Beveridge, it was a report focusing on ‘5 Giants’ which are:. These were the main problems with during post-war Britain. The report not only put these problems into the view of the government it also initialised action by politicians and also the public who recognised these problems and wanted a change. This impacted Britain greatly. If the Beveridge Report was never published then Britain now most likely would be chaotic. Sir Beveridge highlighted these and put plans for the rebuilding of Britain......

Gentleman of the Jungle

...The Gentlemen of the Jungle "Peace is costly, but it's worth the expense." The theme of this text could be patience. How patient you can be before doing something for yourself or how far can you go for somebody else without getting anything? The story is about a man living in an animal world; he has a little hut in peace and quiet. One day there is a hurricane and Mr. Elephant seeks shelter at the man's hut, but with no room for them both, the elephant kicks the man out in the hurricane. This leads to a trial where the animals treat the man unfairly and give the hut to the elephant. In most cases, the man would surely win this trial by miles because it was his hut and all he did was help a friend. "The Gentleman of the Jungle" is written by Jomo Kenyatta in 1938. The story takes place at the edge of the forest in a fictitious land where animals and humans can talk. It states, ''Once upon a time an elephant made a relationship to a man. One day a heavy thunderstorm broke out, the elephant went to his friend who had a little hut at the edge of the forest.’’ (Line 1-3, pg. 171) The setting is the base of the story, the jungle laws they use because it takes place in the jungle. The relationships between the characters start out well. The story tells us that the elephant and the man are friends. The man shows patience when getting told by the lion that he will get his opportunity to get his hut back. This shows that the man has respect for the elders and the animals, "wait......

...they have something the lower class absolutely needs. “Then he threatened me. He knew all about us, he knew we would starve. He knew your boss—he knew Marija's. He would hound us to death, he said—then he said if I would—if I —we would all of us be sure of work—always. Then one day he caught hold of me—he would not let go—he—he—.” Phil Connor threatened Ona with life and death situations. She knows her family needs work and it was probably wonderful to hear him say they would always have a job. He knew he was at the top and they couldn’t stop him. He felt power, superior, they needed him. 1b. Child labor was a huge part of wage slavery. Little kids, forced to go out and do hard work that paid very little. They are not as strong as the older people and neither is their mind set. Working hard like this for scraps of money may have made the children exhausted and even put them in danger. “That Jurgis did not starve to death was due solely to the pittance the children brought him.” Just because this kept Jurgis alive does not mean it didn’t hurt him on the inside. The man of the house was at the lowest point of his life and needed help from young children. All this is, is children starting at a young age, continuing the loop of wage slavery. 1c. Wage slavery only goes one way: the powerful, and the powerless. It’s simple; the bosses had all the power and took complete advantage of it as well. At times they were even unreasonable and always unsympathetic. It seems as......

The Jungle

...Sinclair's novel, The Jungle is an example of such a person. Jurgis is from Lithuania and comes to America in search of the American dream. At the beginning of the novel Jurgis comes to America as any other typical European immigrant. He dreams of America as being a land where a man with little can rise through the ranks and ultimately become a man with wealth and prosperity. Jurgis quickly realizes that industrial America is a land of heartache, where a willing man is exploited and used as energy to fuel the never ending industrial machine. At the end of the novel Jurgis learns that the great land of America has its limitations, but at a cost as he loses his wife and child and spends stints in jail for trying to defy the machine. Thus, the novel, The Jungle exemplifies how immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe in the early 1900s could not fully realize and achieve the American dream no matter how hard they toiled and worked in the brutal American factories of the time. A jungle is an area of madness and chaos where animals roam free and one either eats or is eaten. Upton Sinclair titled his novel, The Jungle because urban Chicago exemplified all of the same traits that a jungle possessed except for the fact that the jungle of Chicago was made up of concrete while a jungle in nature is made up of earth, soil and trees. However, the people that make up the streets of Chicago are just as vicious and brutal as any animal in a real jungle. The jungle of Chicago,......

...Zenja Jones Eng101 – Smith 2 Nov 2015 Jungle The most significant thing I’ve read does not come from a book, a magazine, or a blog. It comes from a hip-hop song. The song was made by a Canadian rapper, turned singer, named Aubrey Graham. He is well known as Drake in the music industry. The song I am referring to is called ‘Jungle.’ There is one lyric in particular that caught my attention and stuck with me. The lyric itself personally inspires me to be my best and encourages me to keep moving toward success. The song is fairly new. It was released in February of 2015, along with seventeen other songs, on Drake’s album ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.’ This is his fourth commercial released album. It was randomly available on iTunes on the thirteenth of February. The album has been very successful, as well as his others. The album debuted as number one on the Canadian Albums Chart and the Billboard 200. Because of ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,’ Drake became the first rapper to top Billboard’s Artist 100 chart. Jungle has the third most plays out of the whole album. Drake has always been one of my favorite artists to listen to. I feel his music is more relatable than others. Jungle really grabbed ahold of my mind and wedged itself in there, continuously playing even when I’m not listening to the actual song. It loops the same part of the song over and over again when I’m in apposition of giving up. It is a rather emotional song though. The meaning of the...

How Has Life Changed Since the 1800's

...The world has been evolving since the 1800’s and so to have the people with how they live, survive and work throughout their daily life. These changed and accounts of daily life in the 1800’s are exhibited in Blaines (Blainey 2000) chapter on “Dethroning the Harvest”. Blainey goes into detail about how people survived during this period of time. Blainey states that during this period of time “Daily life, in every part of the world centred on the production of food” (Blainey 2000 p. 410) The world in the 1800’s revolved around families bringing home the harvest and this was known to happen as a once a year event. Grain was considered the main food source and “dominated the meal table to a degree which is now unimaginable in a prosperous country” (Blainey, 2000 p.410). Grain was found to be used as a main ingredient to make bread, porridge and soup to feed families but in desperate times. In comparison to todays day and age, this has changed immensely due to the frequent growth of fruit and vegetables and the consumption rate of starchy staples have decreased. During this time, tea and coffee was considered a luxury and therefor allowing beer to becomes the common drink that was served to all ages and with most meals. Blainey states that “In England, home brewed beer, drunk at nearly every meal, was almost as essential as bread in the daily diet. Children drank it each day. (Blainey, 2000 p. 411)....

The Jungle

...In 1906, Upton Sinclair's Book The Jungle was published in book form; it had previously been published as a newspaper serial in 1905. Few works of literature have changed history in the United States so much as The Jungle did when it was published. Does Sinclair Lewis make a compelling argument for socialism in his book, The Jungle? I think that the answer to this question is going to be dependent on what you end up believing about socialism. A die hard socialist is probably going to point to Sinclair's ending with zeal and passion because it proves that Jurgis could only find a home when renouncing capitalism and its perverse interpretation of the American Dream. I think that Sinclair believed in the socialist ending of his novel. Yet, I want to pivot the question a bit. While the socialist claim might not be persuasive, like Marx himself, Sinclair is probably more eloquent on suggesting that the current capitalist system, the one being written about at the turn of the century, is in desperate need of repair. His persuasion might lie in his critique of capitalism more than his embrace of socialism. “The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, exposed the nauseating conditions of Chicago’s meat packing industry.” (Goldfield, David R. The American Journey: A History of the United States.) He couldn't have been very happy that the book gained fame for a different reason, but nonetheless it did gain a significant amount of fame and get that message of socialism is better than......

The King´S Speech

...Anwar music Alexandre Desplat featuring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, Timothy Spall, Derek Jacobi, Jennifer Ehle and others What THE KING'S SPEECH is about One day the speech therapist Lionel Logue receives an unexpected visitor in his simple consulting rooms in Harley Street: his new patient is no ordinary citizen, but Prince Albert of York, the second son of King George V. Logue’s task is to help him overcome his stutter. But it is only after initial hesitations – and a few outbursts of fury – that the prince agrees to try out the unusual methods of the Australian-born therapist. As soon as Logue, however, begins to seek the cause of the speech problems in private relationships, Albert breaks off the treatment. After the death of George V, however, when Albert’s older brother is unable to assume the office of king because of his relationship with an American divorcée, Albert unexpectedly become the heir to the throne. Now he needs Logue again after all, if he is to live up to what the British citizens expect of their king, and fulfil his duties – including the radio addresses which he hates. Against a historical backdrop, and based on real events, Tom Hooper tells the story of an unusual friendship between two very different men. With linguistic wit and humour, the film shows how the initially insecure Albert gains self-confidence thanks to the help of the unconventional but respectful Logue, and, in the end,......

The Life, Work, and Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

...Andrea Adams @02717441 HIST 0100 Prof. Tolbert April 21, 2017 The Life, Work, and Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a civil rights activist from the 1950 to 1968 with a strong religious background. A strong advocator for all minorities, King did all in his power to end barriers of community, poverty, racism and militarism. The principle he focused more on, however, was racism. King defined racism as prejudice, apartheid, ethnic conflict, anti-Semitism, sexism, colonialism, homophobia, ageism, or discrimination against disabled groups and stereotypes (Haskins). Later turning his efforts to poverty, King believed that the United States should have equal rights for all men, women and children. Martin Luther King Jr. had a strong philosophy of non-violent protests, called civil disobedience, to which he gained supporters, changing the jurisdictions of racism and poverty to create the American Dream for all. Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, to Michael King Sr. and Alberta Williams King. Born as Michael King Jr., King lived in Atlanta, Georgia (How Did Martin). However, in honor of minister and civil-rights activist Martin Luther Baptist, his parents gave him the name Martin. In 1931, King’s father became the lead pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, a very successful minister as his father and grandfather had been. A very intelligent man, King skipped ninth and eleventh grades, graduating from Booker T.......

A Day in an Older Person"S Life

...trouble keeping a fast pace. He is tall and is very coordinated. In fact, I couldn’t help but notice how graceful my father is with his lean and tall 6ft frame, taking long strides beside me. As we walked he pointed out different animal trails in the snow. He told me that he often saw deer and other wild animals while on his walks. This was really a highlight for him. It’s interesting to hear him describe those experiences with such detail. He was really able to take in the experience and enjoy it at a heightened level. He had so much appreciation for his surroundings. Most of us would have overlooked many of the different details that dad pointed out. Even though he has always enjoyed the outdoors I think that at this point in his life he has more time to enjoy all those things he has always loved but was always too busy to do. During our walk dad talked about all the grandchildren. He talked about my sons and how much they had grown and changed in the last several months. We talked about my children and some of the common concerns most parents have. Dad has always been a really good listener with a sympathetic ear but I think as he gets older this is a quality that has become even better. He shared some of the same issues he had while raising us and assured me that these were not worth sweating over and that I should just enjoy this time. It was interesting to listen to his perspective on those issues. He was able to see things more clearly and simply. ......
