Growing up with timidity and when don’t have love. Gary soto incorporates internal and external dialogue into his stories “broken chain”, “seventh grade” and the narrative poem “oranges’’. The main idea of these passages is that the main characters have insecurity, immaturity and looking for acceptance. The characters are not confident enough to go talk to the girl. An example that means that is that they shy and don't have enough “guts’’ to talk the girl. Soto creates character with similar personality by using dialogue to reveal that the males in the story and poem all share one thing in common. They all have a girl they like.
The poems “ Oranges” by Gary Soto expresses a slow and light feeling, the story focuses on a boy and a girl first time going out. The other poem “ Maco Limping” by David Nava Monreal gives a wide variety of tone. The story is based around this dog with
The book “Fresh Fruits, broken bodies, Migrant Farmers in the United States By Seth Holms, is about Triqui migrants, who migrated up and down the west coast of the United States and Mexico, traveling between rural hometowns in Oaxaca and ideas of industrialized agricultural production in California and Washington. From reading this, he came to an understanding that the ethnography of how they made a living, the sorts of problems and harassment they faced, and the dreadful realities of a food system made on the backs of poor migrant workers. He experienced how the poor suffered taking a hint from his informers, who warned Holmes that crossing the border is a particular kind of suffering, that he needed to hold in order to understand their lives.
The market size for tropical fruit is really large, bananas being the fifth most important agricultural commodity in world trade after cereals, sugar, coffee and cocoa. Six countries (India, Brazil, Ecuador, Philippines, China and Indonesia) account for 55% of total world production. Bananas and pineapples are common fruits, on average 10 kg of bananas are consumed by each of the 350 million EU citizens; therefore it is not really
Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday Billie Holiday was a well known jazz singer who was born in Pennsylvania on April 7, 1915. She was also known as Elanora Fagon in which unfortunately had fallen victim in her life towards the addiction of heroin.

Chris Nguyen American Studies - 3-4 Platt/Aguirre 3/20/16 A Journey of Jazz Jazz identifies as America’s indigenous art form, having its birth and evolution in the United States. Since then, jazz symbolically links to the civil rights movement. In the 1900s, jazz entertained, affected, and inspired Americans; it contributed to and reflects the American culture. Jazz emerged during a period of urban and industrial growth or age of prosperity in the late 19th Century, also known as the Gilded Age. It constantly reflects the social, political, and economic struggles in American cities such as those seen in the Civil Rights Movement, Jim Crow Laws, and the Great Depression and not exclusive to the fluctuating reputation of American culture throughout
Fresh Fruit Broken Bodies embodies shifts in late 20th century anthropological theory through Holmes use of heavy participant observations, by critiquing the Medical Gaze, and by using Bourdieu’s theory on social violence. Holmes use of participant observations is indicative of the postmodern reflexive turn in anthropology where the insider perspective is more valued than it was before, and consideration of the positionality of the ethnographer. Holmes uses Lock and Scheper-Hughes' critical medical anthropology to critique the medical gaze as he seeks to uncover the hidden causes of the migrants health conditions. Bourdieu’s theory of social violence helps explain the conditions the migrant workers’ health as representative of the hegemonic

At what cost will we, consumers, pay for cheap pineapples? 75% of pineapples in Europe are from plantations located in Costa Rica. In these plantations there are many disturbing issues that large TNC’s don’t want us to see. This includes things like chemical pollution in the local rivers and water sources, workers living in poverty from their low wages and poor living conditions. There is clearly structural inequality between the TNC’s and the Trade Union/Workers.
Jeanette Winterson’s novel Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit when published in 1985 as her first novel, it was unanimously regarded as “a realistic and heavily autobiographical comedy of ‘coming out’” (Onega) in which the narrative structure employs elements derived from the Bildungsroman tradition -expression of the heroine’s quest for individuation, as
Both Walker (‘The Colour Purple’) and Winterson (‘Oranges are Not the Only Fruit’) present strong female protagonists who face various gender restrictions throughout the novels. For example both characters have their choice of partner controlled. In ‘The Colour Purple’ Walker constrains her protagonist (Celie) by entering her into an arranged marriage, in which she has little say as “I can’t let you have Nettie... But I can let you have Celie”. Similarly, in ‘Oranges are Not the Only Fruit’ Winterson limits her protagonists (Jeanette) freedom by dictating that “romantic love for another women is a sin”. While it could be argued that the two protagonists are presented as defying these traditional gender roles through their sexuality and newfound independence, it could also be argued that they simply behave in ways that maybe be considered unsterotypical of their gender.
Jeanette Winterson uses hard work and the editing process to make her book, Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit, the success that it is. Thus, that it is the aforementioned aspects of the writing process that are the most integral, overshadowing even the inspiration process. A book written primarily using inspiration would be a failure if there was not hard work involved.
Food Controversy In the food industry there have been many issues and processes that have brought a large amount of question to the industry overall, like the meat packing process in its early stages. I can 't think of a more heated issue in the last few passing years then the controversy over Genetically modified organisms in the food industry. Some countries are for it some are against it. Many sides will argue that genetically mutated organisms (GMO) are bad for the food industry while others will argue the opposite. While genetically mutate organisms have proved to provide many positive uses on today 's earth the question still remains the same are GMO 's good for us, the environment, or at all. Also if they yield more negative
The breeding of the red-fleshed apples was originally from Kazakhstan and improvements of the apple was breed in order for the breeders to produce a apple that has high in Vitamin and as a healthy diet snack. The scientists have collected the apple’s seeds in order to let those seeds to grow in New Zealand. The red-fleshed apples were usually small back in Kazakhstan and it has a different taste which was a bit bitter and had a lack of quality in the commercial marketing. Also they have improved the apple’s taste just by crossing the original red-fleshed apple with another white-fleshed varieties fruit in order to improve the characteristics of the apple since it will be important for commercial and consumer with its long storage life. Generally, the red-fleshed apple will breed in order to improve the quality of the apple and also to provide nutrition which are high in vitamins and antioxidants, which then it reduces the risk of some diseases, but there are some red fleshed apple that can be healthier than other apples that have been produced. Although, breeders are able to use genetic information in order to make the breeding process faster and more effective. By investigating the DNA from the apples seed the scientists are able to predict that many apple characteristics including the red fleshed apple long before the seeds produces fruit, in order to decided which seeds are able to grow well and which can be redundant.
