Him playing this game showed just how bad he wanted to be valid. He played it over and over just to try to beat him. Only as they were both about to go their separate ways in life did he beat his brother ending with him dragging his brothers unconscious body onto the beach. This showed him that he could do everything that his brother could which carried him through his heist.
Growing up Edwin was the youngest of three siblings, and an avid animal lover. Once a proud owner of boxer dog named Fudge he spent several years caring for the dog before it sadly passed away from cancer at the age of eleven (seventy-seven in dog years). He tells me it’s a thing that happens to all boxers. In fact Fudge lived years beyond it’s expectancy. Also a gamer Edwin has competed in multiple tournaments and cites video games as his favorite hobby. One he’s able to pursue inhibited with no occupational or personal commitments this semester. Mentioning competitive one-on-one fighting video games has his favorite genre. He’s counts the crossover video game Marvel vs. Capcom as his favorite. And when I ask his favorite character to play he’s quick to say Iron Man (Tony Stark’s alter ego) from The Avengers - earth’s mightiest heroes.
When I asked him why he liked video games he simply replied, “cause it’s fun.” He told me how he liked the teamwork that comes from multiplayer games. He likes working hard to reach his goal, “same in real life” he says.
The artwork Blinded by the Light (1991) by Yasumasa Morimura is an appropriation of Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s The Blind Leading the Blind (1568) (Israel, 2005). Morimura has appropriated paintings and photographs throughout the ages, though The Blind Leading the Blind is the earliest dated work that Morimura has appropriated (Marsh, Watts, & Maylon, 1999). Morimura super-imposes a composite self-portrait on top of Bruegel’s painting, successfully changing the meaning of the piece. The different historical contexts of the two pieces in conjunction with appropriation allow the accumulation of ideas to present two separate meanings pertinent to the ideals of the times. Morimura’s simultaneous use of the historical and religious aspects of The

From Japanese pop art to the black shapes of toxic clouds, Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art and the Queensland Art Gallery situated in Southbank, have it all. Even though, perhaps, there are some distinctly interesting art pieces which are currently displayed in these two galleries. These galleries exhibit a wide display of different genre of art ranging from film to installations and back to sculptures which show the concept of Identity- the Human Condition, but none quite so than the Contemporary Asian Art Exhibition and the Creative Generation Exhibition.
One topic can be expressed in millions of ways. It can be positively, negatively, full of emotion, or emotionless. In the two poems “Slam, Dunk, & Hook” by Yusef Komunyakaa and “Fast Break” by Edward Hirsch, the authors express the positive outlook of basketball in a way that shows they admire and praise the sport. Their love for the game is shown through imagery, point of view, and its emotional impact, but these ideas are expressed in different ways.
In Neon Vernacular, Yusef Komunyakaa brought to the forefront the struggles of African American soldiers who fought in the Vietnam War. They fought for the freedom of the very ones that denied them their freedom to be equal and the same as their white counterparts. The collection of poems really delve into the everyday matters that were a constant reminder to the African American soldiers that they were free to fight, but not free to be as those white soldiers that they fought beside. An analysis of Komunyakaa’s work opens the eyes of those who felt that the Vietnam War zone was an equal opportunity for all those who fought for America. Also,the realities of racism that existed in the Vietnam War are highlighted in the Neon Vernacular.
In “How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents” by Julia Alvarez, It’s shown how being engulfed into a new culture can cause people to struggle with keeping their own culture alive because they are around so many people that are living the American culture. Even though there are so many different races and religions in America, we all as Americans know how things work around here, therefore, it can be tough for a different culture to live out their own ways in such a mixed country. It’s impossible to adjust to a culture without changing and being exposed to cultural discrimination.
Being the daughter of undocumented parents is a huge label I had to accept. Low-income, criminal, deportation, and uneducated always followed the label of undocumented immigrant. It was never positive words like hardworking, opportunists, or dedicated in which I saw my parents. Em and J were one of the lucky ones and they managed to become legal. Even with that new legal status the hardships and consequences of once being undocumented still follow them to this day.

My name is Basil Onyia. To describe myself in a few words, I am a black African male from Nigeria. This profile will focus on race, ethnicity, and national origin differences between myself and the community I intend to discuss about. The topic of discussion is the community of Mexican-Americans in America. Before jumping into the profile, I believe that a definition of the three diverse characteristics should be done, especially since some of the terms are used interchangeable with others in society and carry relative meanings. Ethnicity is a population group in which its people identity through a common culture, nationality, language, or ancestor. The community focused on here is generally identified as Hispanic and on a smaller scale the
