“Fear is courage,holding on a minute longer”. It means you shouldn’t give up on anything and keep trying. Tenzing Norgay is an example,he was fearful of climbing Everest but held on and was the first in history to summit.
Japanese theater has four main pillars of the classical theater consisting of, Kabuki, Noh, Kyogen, and Bunraku Puppet Theater. They all have deep roots, the longest of them being Noh, dating back to 1363, after the Prince Shotoku converted to Buddhism, and Kan’ami and Zeami refined the court arts and created Noh (Mitchell 239). Following Noh came Bunraku, emerging during 1603-1867 (Mitchell 240). Bunraku was very popular until Kabuki came out, in the late 18th century, and overcame the many accusations against the art (Mitchell 242). The interesting thing about Japanese theater is that its focus is strongly on tradition, and being so it is passed down from the elder people of the generation to the younger so that they can keep the theater
“With courage you will dare to take risks.” With bravery you will challenge yourself to the extreme. Tenzing Norgay risked his life to be the first to successfully summit Mt. Everest.
"In the summer of 1911, at age 20, he broke the American 50-yard record by more than a second, and beat the 100-yard world record by more than four seconds" (Duke Kahanamoku | Encyclopedia of Surfing). Duke didn't stop there, in 1920 he went on to set another world record in the 100-meter freestyle (Duke Kahanamoku | Encyclopedia of Surfing). Among many of the unique nicknames that Kahanamoku had aquired throught the years was the "Bronzed Duke" (Duke Kahanamoku | Encyclopedia of Surfing). This may be coincidence and it may not, but it definitely interesting as many, if not all, of the sculptures made in Duke's likeness were casted in
As Wagga Wagga is 147m above sea level, the altitude difference can affect the young athletes’ performance as it is initially less efficient due to them not being able to get a sufficient amount of oxygen to work the muscles throughout the body. The thinness of the air can increase chances of altitude sickness including headaches, dizziness and nausea. As the team only arrived 20 minutes before the scheduled start of play, they may not have had enough time to acclimatize and properly warm up before the game, causing players to become fatigue a lot quicker and possibly injuring themselves. There is less air resistance due to the air being thinner, allowing the ball to move faster and further through the air, increasing chances of direct injuries
I have seen how DNA and genes passed down from our parents can control our internal body and our outward appearance, like our physical and emotional health, intelligence, eye color and skin color. DNA is used to determine that kind of stuff. In some of our society, what genetic disease you have can have impact on what you can do. For example, if you were to have hemophilia, it may limit you on playing sports because if you get cut, you can bleed for a long time which would be very dangerous. Physical features can also have an impact on your role in society. If you are considered strong or handsome/beautiful you might be more successful at school and in your job career. After watching the movie Gattaca I think it would be neat to genetically
The Kayapo people would protect their lands by protesting with military precision that would “apply pressure” on the anyone who trespassed. It would get to the point of killing anyone who trespassed their land. According to the article, warriors would use strategic ideas with river crossing and also to control their borders. They would take hold of hostages and makes the trespassers go back to town without clothings. It is explained that the Kayapo would give two choices to illegal gold miners and ranchers that are using their land. Those two options were they could leave the land or get killed on the spot.
Imagine a world that would full of people to their full potential, one where everyone is the best they could possibly be. This world would be unreal, a different place, but would that be a better ideal world? In my mind no. I do not think we should have genetic engineering in this century. However, in the future, I see genetic engineering as a possible way of life like it was used in the movie Gattaca. Personally I wouldn’t take part in it because it could and would lead to problems such as social ramifications and that there is no guarantee the outcome will not have side effects as seen in Gattaca.
Today, Classical music isn 't considered to be the most popular genre of music, but as I seen at MJC 's "Frozen - A family Holiday Choral Concert", the audience really enjoyed the songs that fell into this genre. Whether one realizes it or not, we hear classical music more than we think. When one is on hold with their doctor 's office, at an upper scale department store, or even at a fancy restaurant, more than likely the type of music being played is classical. The Classical music period originated in the mid-1700 's and lasted until the mid-1800 's. A lot of people don 't realize, but classical music is still being composed today, but is much different than what it was hundreds of years ago. Most of the texture in classical music has multiple parts that tend to move in the same rhythm, which is homophonic. One can hear simple classic instruments, such as: strings, woodwinds, percussion, and brass when listening to this genre. Some of the well-known forms of music today, such as: symphonies, sonatas, concertos and orchestras all derived from classical music.
Yuya was born and raised in Nagano, Japan as an only child, with his mother and father. His family isn’t rich, but it’s not exactly too poor either. Only his father works, as Yuya’s mother is ill and cannot work. Despite this, his mother would every once in awhile, bring Yuya to the ice rink in the city. This would always be the highlight of his day, whenever they got the chance to go there. At such a young age, Yuya had already gotten considerably good at ice skating, as it seemed to come naturally to him. Not long after, his mother say the potential in him, and eventually Yuya would enter small competitions. With his mother in the audience always cheering him on, he felt as if he was invincible on the ice, and has won every competition he has entered from then on.
Yasukuni was a Shinto shrine commemorating the individuals who died in service to the Japanese Empire from the Meiji and Taishō era, and less during the Shōwa era. In a similar comparative notion with the American’s Arlington National Cemetery, all nations need a place to mourn those who lost their lives in service to their respective country; however, following the end of World War II in victory to the Allies, the Yasukuni received a blemish record during the American occupation and was considered to be demolished, but was saved by SCAP since the destruction of the shrine would have caused unknown consequences and damaged since the plan was to democratize Japan during the American occupation, not destroying it
The important role of the court music in Japan is to demonstrate the tradition and ritual of an Empire and its royal family. This ensemble is one of the oldest tradition in the world, which reveals the longevity of the court music in Japan. The earliest reference of Gagaku was originated in the city of Nara, Japan, during the 5th century and eventually, Gagaku was inherited in the traditions of Japanese culture. Eventually, the court music evolved into a performance, which was served only to Imperial family, rather than common citizens. The ensemble of the court music consisted of dance routines, and music recitals, which reveals continental routes and longevity. Along with the dances routines, in the video, Gagaku: The Court Music of Japan,
Scenery and costumes create detail of life realistically. In realistic theatre, a rhythm is a need to create a natural flow in direction on stage and the actor performances. The actor must bring out their own personal emotion, like in the play “And the soul shall dance”. Both families have moved to the United States during the depression time in California, as an immigrant during the time, Japanese people were not favorable. The Murata and Oka families. The Murata family is strong and work together to face challenges along the road, unlike the Oka family, the husband and the wife was not happy with their life, she was arranged to marry her husband and leave her true love behind back in Japan. In realistic theatre, the character is looking to
In Kabuki theatre, everything that is seen on the stage is the result of a meaningful inner dynamic which completes the performance by the coordination of the actors with all the various components of the mise-en-scène and then by the traditions of all the various elements being assembled into an organic whole (Kawatake 1990, 247).
