Different Types of Folk Dances
Itik-Itik
The best description of the Itik-Itik is that the steps mimic the way a duck walks, as well as the way it splashes water on its back to attract a mate. According to popular tradition, the dance was created by a lady named Kanang who choreographed the steps while dancing at a baptismal party. The other guests copied her movements, and everyone liked the dance so much that it has been passed along ever since.
Tinikling
The Tinikling is considered by many to be the Philippines' national dance. The dance's movements imitate the movement of the tikling bird as it walks around through tall grass and between tree branches. People perform the dance using bamboo poles. The dance is composed of three basic steps which include singles, doubles and hops. It looks similar to playing jump rope, except that the dancers perform the steps around and between the bamboo poles, and the dance becomes faster until someone makes a mistake and the next set of dancers takes a turn.
Sayaw sa Bangko
The Sayaw sa Bangko is performed on top of a narrow bench. Dancers need good balance as they go through a series of movements that include some impressive acrobatics. This dance traces its roots back to the areas of Pangapisan, Lingayen and Pangasinan.
Binasuan
The Binasuan is an entertaining dance that is usually performed at festive social occasions like weddings and birthdays. Dancers carefully balance three half-filled glasses of rice wine on their heads and hands as they gracefully spin and roll on the ground. The dance originated in Bayambang in the Pangasinan province, and though it's usually performed alone, it can also become a competition between several dancers. Pandanggo sa Ilaw
The Pandanggo sa Ilaw is similar to a Spanish Fandango, but the Pandanggo is performed while balancing three oil lamps - one on the head, and one in each hand.…...

...changing occupational stratification, the concentration of labor through imported industry, colleges, et cetera, have all contributed their part. The 'commuters to London,' that is, those who studied in Europe and who freely maintained social intercourse with Europeans, used to become outcasts up to the last generation; but more and more this pattern is disappearing. And it has been impossible to introduce caste coaches on the railroads in the fashion of the American railroad cars or waiting which segregate 'White' from 'Black' in the Southern States. All caste relations have been shaken, and the stratum of intellectuals bred by the English are here, as elsewhere, bearers of a specific nationalism. They will greatly strengthen this slow and irresistable process. (Weber [1916] 1970, 397) Even down to the peculiar importance of railroads, Weber's diagnosis bears a striking resemblance to Marx's even though there were divergencies in identifying causal mechanisms and the general dynamics of change. This brief review of the major theories of social change and development, most of which had crystallized by the early decades of the twentieth century, reveals that they contained virtually all the elements of the theories of social change that were to develop in the postWorld War II period. Among these elements are the neoevolutionary perspectives embodied in some versions of modernization theory, the consequences of irregular development, international political and economic......

...reason he had been summoned, but really it was not the way his company operated. He talked on, then noticed Indira was doodling on papers on her desk, looking away. Wadia took his leave, and received a curt nod from Indira Gandhi. Two or three months after the Congress win in early January 1980, Wadia again received a call to New Delhi from Sanjay Gandhi. Having endured imprisonment and sustained invective for his Emergency excesses during the Janata period, Sanjay was now even more firmly ensconced as Indira’s Crown Prince. ‘From being a wielder of authority delegated to him by his mother he had now become her partner in power,’ wrote the commentator Inder Malhotra. ‘ . . . At this time Sanjay’s power was at its zenith and practically irresistable. Ministers and top civil servants vied with one another to do his bidding, however arbitrary Those having qualms about this soon found themselves in trouble; politicans were sidelined and “recalcitrant” bureaucrats were summarily removed from their positions, humiliated and often kept waiting for months for alternate, usually inconsequen tial, postingS.’3 ‘You lied,’ Sanjay greeted Wadia. ‘Tata and Mabindra have paid.’ This was almost certainly a bluff. Mahindra, another big Parsi company, which made Jeeps and machinery, and Tata were unlikely to risk their reputations by illicit payments, certainly from their central managements.

...much beloved, but hasty mistaken father! She that could receive, protect, and cherish a poor, infirm, weak, and despised old man, although he had showered down curses on her undeserving head! That such a melancholy catastrophe was by no means necessary, is sufficiently evinced by the manner in which the same play is now performed (in the adaptation of Nahum Tate). ingratitude now meets with its proper punishment, and the audience now retire, exulting in the mutual happiness of paternal affection, and filial piety. Such, if practicable, should be the winding up of all dramatic representations, that mankind may have the most persuasive allurements to all good actions: for although virtue depressed may be amiable, virtue triumphant must be irresistable. But it may perhaps be objected by some, that the death of the wicked cannot occasion pity; and if innocence and virtue are not to fall beneath the stroke of oppression and injustice, where is the pathos, where is the tender sympathy? To this it may be answered, in the unmerited misfortunes, in the agonizing distress of the innocent; in seeing the virtuous involuntarily led to the perpetration of some horrid crime, or in the dread apprehension of having already committed it, or tottering on the very brink of perdition. What a critical, what an interesting situation is it to the spectator, when he beholds merope seemingly reduced to the dreadful alternative of seeing her son perish, or of giving herself to the murderer of her......

To care for relatives or to carry the message. And ...? Finally Allah or your Ismail? Ibrahim, choose one! After a hundred years of prophecy among the people, a life of leadership struggling with idol worshippers, ignorants and oppressors, being victorious on all fronts and successful in delivering your responsibilities, no where and never having any doubts in your way, disregarding any personal interest, getting as close to God as is possible for a man, establishing the nation of tawheed passing all the exams and ... Do not feel impetuous, do not rest, do not think you are hero, irresistable and having no weakness. Victories of those hundred years should not mislead you or deceive you; do not think you are "innocent". Do not feel so secure and protected from Satanic temptations. You are not always immune from those invisible powers that surround mankind. There are so many beams of artificial glories that may make you blind. He (Allah) knows you better than yourself. He knows you are still vulnerable. He knows there is still a point from where you can see the world and worldly matters. Then He severs any narrow contact you may have with this world! Oh Ibrahim, the victorious hero of the greatest battle of history, with your high spirit and irresistability! Oh prominent prophet of God! - Do not think we are finished......

...cost, simple machine preferred in Italy would have been effective all over Europe if the cost advantage had been employed for aggressive advertising and price competition. Basic strategy should be geared to fundamental consumer goals, not their apparent manifestation at a given moment. "The global corporation accepts for better or for worse that technology drives consumers relentlessly toward the same common goals - alleviation of life's burdens and the expansion of discretionary time and spending power." Again the Japanese are cited. "They have discovered the one great thing all markets have in common - an overwhelming desire for dependable, worldstandard modernity in all things, at aggressively low prices. In response, they deliver irresistable value everywhere, attracting people with products that market-research technocrats described with superficial certainty as being unsuitable and uncompetitive." -yfiiike the "aging multinational corporation" which adapted to superficial and even entrenched differences, the global corporation "will seek sensibly to force suitable standardized products and practices on the entire globe."

...waitress, as she was doing most of the job; such as collecting the payments from the customers, ensuring our enjoyment by checking on us between every few minutes, removing dishes and glasses and cleaning the tables and what mostly attracted me about her was her clean uniform and her great personality. I was feeling happy by having a conversation with my nephew in front of the amazing view, which made my day full of enjoyment. Perhaps most importantly for this cafe that it values the customers and it leaves every single customer with a great personalized experience and it left me with a great memorable moments. I decided to leave the cafe for some reason, but I couldn't because of the great moments that I had in the cafe, especially the irresistable view. The time passed very fast as I didn't check my watch because my eyes were busy watching some other attracting and amazing views. Everything was perfect, the atmosphere, the service and the drinks.

Greek Essay

...the universe came into existence. Upon my research Eros was most mention in the works of Sappho, a Greek lyric poet. In one line she says “Eros (love) came from heaven clad in a purple mantle”. In works by satirical poets, he was depicted as a blindfolded man, carrying bow and arrow and could target any human and make them fall in love with the very first person they seen. The fact that we’ve created a holiday (Valentine’s day) and its represented by Cupid, and the idea and image of Cupid is still around today shows how great of an impact it made. That people just wanted to love and be loved, and it was described with such beauty like in Sappho, Fragment 130 : "Once again limb-loosening Eros (Love) makes me tremble, the bitter-sweet, irresistable creature." Eudaimonia, my next Greek concept is also another powerful concept. Eudaimonia is blatantly translated into happiness. But the tricky part of this concept in its time, and still this day is what makes happiness, what his happiness. It is discussed in many pieces of literature, but most famously in The Republic by Plato. Plato writes “that eudaimonia refers to a state of the soul, and the active life to which it leads, whose value is multifaceted. The order and harmony of the soul is, of course, good for the soul because it provides what is good for each of the parts and the whole, and so makes the parts function well, for the benefit of each and of the whole person.” Aristotle made points that eudemonia life is a life......

...children to reproduce his beauty and pass on his superior qualities to a child, thereby allowing future generations to enjoy and appreciate these qualities when the child becomes a man. The sonnets achieve this with various direct and metaphorical pleas. There have been various suggestions as to who the subject is; the most convincing being either the Earl of Pembroke or the Earl of Southampton, but Sir Robert Dudley (1574-1649) who was the Duke of Northumberland and son of the Earl of Leicester is a compelling candidate too. The next 109 sonnets (18-126) cover a wide variety of personal subjects and Petrarchan themes and include his very best examples. Sonnets 127-133 and 147-152 cover the subject of The Dark Lady – a beautiful, sensous, irresistable dark-skinned woman of questionable morals by whom the author experiences wildly different emotions of lust and self-loathing. References to the dark lady also appear in previous sonnets (35, 40, 41, 42), in which Shakespeare reproaches the young man for an apparent liaison with the dark lady. The first two lines of Sonnet 41 chide the young man for "those petty wrongs that liberty commits / when I am sometime absent from thy heart," a reference to the young man's wrongful wooing of the dark lady. The last two lines, the rhyming couplet, further impugn the young man for using his good looks to attract the dark lady. In Sonnet 42, the poet charges, "thou dost love her, because thou knowst I love her." The remainder of the......
