  • Kung - 548 words
    Kung Fu As a six year old child, fighting like a Ninja was a necessary step in growing up. Since most of my six year old friends had hit this stage at about the same time as myself, we would fight each other like Ninjas. We would fight almost every day. At school, at home, on the playground, even on the gymnastic mats outside the gymnasium, where our story begins. Now after fighting day after day, we became tired of attacking each other with pretend punching and kicking. So, because I was the braniac of the group, I suggested we look for sticks shaped like swords and spears to throw at each other. Oh, and don`t forget to pick up lots of rocks to use as throwing stars, I yelled to everyone as ...

  • Kung Tribe - 265 words
    Kung Tribe When I went on the Internet I found that the most interesting topic on culture. I learned about the !Kung. I got interested in them because they seemed to always be in the anthropology book. In the book these people are always talked about. I wanted to know why these people were so famous among anthropologists. I found that the !Kung were a tribe ruled by themselves and have no king or chief. They are people of the Kalahari Desert and have the ability to adapt to their surroundings. They are a foraging people. They hunt and gather. The men do most of the hunting but in special circumstances the women are forced to do the hunting of small game. The women do the most work. They are ...

  • Nisa The Life And Words Of Kung Woman By Marjorie Shostak - 1,763 words
    Nisa The Life And Words Of Kung Woman By Marjorie Shostak In this paper I am going to discuss the book Nisa The Life and Words of a !Kung Woman, by Marjorie Shostak. In doing this I will describe the culture of the !Kung people, a small hunter-gatherer tribe in Africa. Then I will go on with telling about their sociocultural systems that I have read about in this book. To rap things up I will tell my prediction where the !Kung population is headed into the future.

  • The Kung Bushman - 1,028 words
    The !Kung Bushman Most contemporary foraging groups, such as the !Kung and other Bushman tribes, are viewed as a primitive people. Some have even gone as far to say that they are the last representatives of the stone age. While it is true that these people have the most similar culture to what we believe primitive persons to have had, the analogies they can provide us with the people of the past are very inaccurate. These comparisons are so unrivaled due to factors such as time and the wrong sense of view many people have on them. Another reason that we cannot compare the !Kung of today to the people of the past is because they are now advancing in society with the use of technology. I belie ...

  • Breakdancing - 370 words
    Breakdancing Breakdancing Breakdancing a form of African American dance that emerged from the hip hop culture of the South Bronx, New York, during the mid-1970s. Drawing upon several African American dance forms, break dancing coalesced in the 1970s and reached its peak in popularity during the 1980s. Breakdancing developed out of the Bronx, New York, disco scene. When disco DJs changed records, dancers would fill the resulting musical breaks, or "breakbeats," with movements that emphasized the rupture in rhythmic continuity. These highly acrobatic interludes developed into a new genre that mixed Afrodiasporic dance styles, reflecting the influence of the lindy-hop, the Charleston, the cakew ...

  • Character Analysis Of Estelle In Margaret Atwoods Rape Fantasies - 1,236 words
    Character Analysis of Estelle in Margaret Atwood's "Rape Fantasies" Anyway Estelle is the only thoroughly developed character in Margaret Atwood's "Rape Fantasies." Though she is the narrator and quite thoughtful of the ideas and reactions of the story's supporting players, it is her almost obsessive preoccupation with a singular topic that actually prompts her to fully illustrate her own ideas and reactions, drawing a character far more compelling than any of the men or women she will attempt to describe. Estelle begins her story and ruminations swiftly. She considers rape, how rape has recently been treated like a new scourge, and how essays and tips on rape prevention have become somethin ...

  • Confucianism The Religion Of Confucianism Is And Interesting And Unique Religion The Various Parts Of This Belief System Deal - 1,247 words
    Confucianism The religion of Confucianism is and interesting and unique religion. The various parts of this belief system deal more with humanity than with deities or supernatural occurrences. It is this fact that leads many to believe that Confucianism is more a philosophy or way of life than a religion. There are, however, various ceremonies and beliefs that those who follow Confucianism observe. In short, Confucianism has had more impact on the lives of the Chinese than any other single religion. Confucius was born in the province of Lu (now known as Shantung), in 551 BC, the youngest of eleven children, in the period of China's history when the nation was divided into feudal states. Conf ...

  • Confucius - 1,736 words
    Confucius Confucius created a system of thinking called Confucianism. If only one word could be used to summarize the Chinese way of life for the last two thousand years, that word would be Confucian. No other person has had as great an effect on the life and thought of the Chinese people as Confucius. He is the most adored person in Chinese history. Confucius claimed no greatness, instead he looked to a past time that he saw as the golden age. He told one of his disciples, I transmit but I do not create. I am sincerely fond of the ancient. I would compare myself to Old P'eng who was fond of talking about the good old days. Confucius was a transmitter of the wisdom of the past. From his stud ...

  • Confucius - 1,260 words
    Confucius The history of Chinese civilization spans thousands of years and encompasses countless ideas, beliefs, and societal and political doctrines. However, from a modern standpoint one distinct perspective prevails above the rest in the manner and degree it has influenced the development of China. For the previous 2,000 years the teachings of Confucius, and the systems of thought and behavior that have evolved from them, have had significant effects on Chinese thought, government institutions, literature and social customs. Confucianism has served a primary role as a social and moral philosophy and as practiced by many, especially in the educated upper classes, Confucianism had definite ...

Men, most of their time, live in flute chamber and men's house, where women live in houses and prepare food in farinha shed. Only when it comes to biological reproduction, men go in the houses. Men do their rituals in the flute chamber, where it is secret and no woman can enter. The farinha shed and men's house are important because of the economic activity conducted in them. The houses don't have much of the importance because women's ability to give birth is not considered to be unique. In men's rituals they show that men can reproduce wi ...

The religions both believe in reincarnation and that the specific purpose of their teachings is to escape this cycle. Buddhism is founded on the teachings of the Budda.

  • History Of Taoism - 901 words
    History Of Taoism The History of Taoism There is a dispute on the origins of Taoism. One theory is the earliest known Taoist text may be the work of a minister of the ruler of the Shang-Yin dynasty in the eighteenth century B.C. The other theory is that it was began by the mentor of the father of the Chou dynasty in the twelfth century. What is known is that, Li Erh (6th century BCE) who is better known as Lao Tzu (the Old Master), was the author of one of the most influential texts of Taoism, the Tao Te Ching.

  • Japanese Martial Arts - 1,345 words
    Japanese Martial Arts The Martial Arts of Japan The martial arts have influenced Japan in many ways. Many of these arts have been passed down from ancient times and are still even practiced today. In my report, I will examine the major Japanese arts and tell how they have influenced Japan. First, however, I will give a little background for these arts. The original word for Japanese martial arts was bujutsu, or art of the military. This had more to do with physical techniques than philosophical and mental. The physical, mental and philosophical techniques were combined to create budo, or way of the military. Budo was also used to describe the code of the samurai in feudal days. Karate is act ...

When the subject has raised its ugly head, though, they've typically tossed out arbitrary ideas to explain a single piece of the puzzle, rather than address the entire yin and yang of black-white and white-Asian marriages. For example, a Japanese-American poetry professor in Minnesota has written extensively on his sexual troubles with white women. He blames the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Presumably, the similarity of frustrations of Chinese-American men is just a coincidence caused by, say, China losing the Opium War. And the problems of Vietnamese men stem from win- ning the Vietnam War, etc. But piecemeal rationalizations are unappealing com- pared to ...

Along with these newfound problems, such as the now infamous Y2K, come the latest futuristic prophecies about the world's damnation due to the new technologies. Thus is the need for, and theory behind the movie Matrix. The Matrix explores unthinkable realms of computer world domination, human cultivation, and a specious reality so profoundly using exceptional writing by brothers Andy and Larry Wachowski.
