Hindenburg Disaster

The suddenness of the disaster was shocking. At 7:25 p.m. on May 6, 1937, while the Hindenburg was attempting to land at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey, a flame appeared on the outer cover of the rear of the Hindenburg. Within 34 seconds, the entire airship was consumed by fire. Take-off On May 3, 1937, the captain of the Hindenburg (on this trip, Max Pruss) ordered the zeppelin out of its shed at the airship station in Frankfurt, Germany. As was usual, when all was ready, the captain shouted, Schiff hoch! (Up ship!) and the ground crew released the handling lines and gave the giant airship a push upward. This trip was the first of the 1937 season for passenger service between Europe and the United States and it wasnt as popular as the 1936 season. In 1936, the Hindenburg had completed ten successful trips (1,002 passengers) and was so popular that they had to turn away customers. On this trip, the first of the 1937 season, the airship was only half full, carrying 36 passengers despite it being equipped to carry 72. For their $400 ticket ($720 round trip), the passengers could relax in the large, luxurious common spaces and enjoy fine food.  They could play, sing, or  listen to the baby grand piano on board or just sit and write postcards. With 61 crew members on board, the passengers were well accommodated. The luxury of the Hindenburg was a marvel in air travel. Considering that passengers were not taken across the Atlantic in heavier-than-air crafts (airplanes) until 1939, the novelty as well as the luxury of traveling in the Hindenburg was astonishing. The smoothness of the ride took many of the Hindenburgs passengers by surprise. Louis Lochner, a newspaperman, described the trip: You feel as though you were carried in the arms of angels.1 There are other stories of passengers waking up after several hours aloft questioning the crew as to when the ship was to take off.2 On most trips across the Atlantic, the Hindenburg maintained an altitude of approximately 650 feet and cruised around 78 mph; however, on this trip, the Hindenburg encountered strong head winds that slowed it down, pushing back the Hindenburgs arrival time from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 6, 1937. The Storm A storm was brewing over the Lakehurst Naval Air Station (New Jersey) on the afternoon of May 6, 1937. After Captain Pruss had taken the Hindenburg over Manhattan, with a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty, the airship was nearly over Lakehurst when they received a weather report that stated winds were up to 25 knots. In a lighter-than-air ship, winds could be dangerous; thus, both Captain Pruss and Commander Charles Rosendahl, the officer in charge of the air station, agreed that the Hindenburg should wait for the weather to improve. The Hindenburg then headed southward, then northward, in a continuing circle while it waited for better weather. Family, friends, and newspapermen waited at Lakehurst for the Hindenburg to land. Most had been there since the early morning hours when the airship was first scheduled to land. At 5 p.m., Commander Rosendahl gave the order to sound Zero Hour - a loud siren beckoning the 92 navy and 139 civilian ground crew personnel from the nearby town of Lakehurst. The ground crew were to help the airship land by hanging on to mooring lines. At 6 p.m. it began to really rain and soon after began to clear. At 6:12 p.m., Commander Rosendahl informed Captain Pruss: Conditions now considered suitable for landing.3 The Hindenburg had traveled perhaps a little too far and was still not at Lakehurst at 7:10 p.m. when Commander Rosendahl sent another message: Conditions definitely improved recommend earliest possible landing.4 Arrival Not long after Commander Rosendahls last message, the  Hindenburg  appeared over Lakehurst. The  Hindenburg  made a pass over the airfield before coming in for landing. Circling over the airfield, Captain Pruss tried to slow down the  Hindenburg  and to lower its altitude. Perhaps worried about the weather, Captain Pruss made a sharp left turn as the airship approached the mooring mast. Since the  Hindenburg  was a little tail heavy, 1,320 pounds (600 kg) of ballast water was dropped (often, unwary onlookers who had ventured too close to an approaching airship would get drenched from ballast water). Since the stern was still heavy, the  Hindenburg  dropped another 1,100 pounds (500 kg) of ballast water and this time did drench some of the onlookers. At 7:21 p.m., the  Hindenburg  was still about 1,000 feet away from the mooring mast and approximately 300 feet in the air. Most of the passengers stood by the windows to watch the onlookers grow larger as the airship decreased its altitude and to wave at their family and friends. The five officers on board (two were just observers) were all in the control gondola. Other crewmen were in the tail fin to release mooring lines and to drop the rear landing wheel. A Flame At 7:25 p.m., witnesses saw a small, mushroom-shaped flame rise from the top of the tail section of the  Hindenburg, just in front of the tail fin. The crewmen in the tail of the airship said they heard a detonation which sounded like the burner on a gas stove turn on.5   Within seconds, the fire engulfed the tail and spread quickly forward.  The mid-section was completely in flames even before the tail of the  Hindenburg  hit the ground. It took only 34 seconds for the entire airship to be consumed by flames. The passengers and crew had only seconds to react. Some jumped out of the windows, some fell. Since the  Hindenburg  was still 300 feet (roughly equal to 30 stories) in the air when it caught fire, many of these passengers did not survive the fall. Other passengers got wedged inside the ship by moving furniture and fallen passengers. Other passengers and crew jumped from the ship once it neared the ground. Even others were rescued from the burning bulk after it had hit the ground. The ground crew, which had been there to assist the craft in mooring, became a rescue crew. The injured were taken to the airfields infirmary; the dead were taken to the press room, the impromptu morgue. The Radio Broadcast On the scene, radio broadcaster Herbert Morrison captured his emotion-filled, first-hand experience as he watched the  Hindenburg  burst into flames. (His radio broadcast  was taped and then played to a shocked world the following day.) Aftermath Considering the quickness of the catastrophe, it is amazing that only 35 of the 97 men and women on board, plus one member of the ground crew, died in the  Hindenburg  disaster. This tragedy - seen by so many via photographs, news-reels, and radio - effectively ended commercial passenger service in rigid,  lighter-than-air crafts. Though it was assumed at the time that the fire was caused by a hydrogen gas leak ignited by a spark of static electricity, the cause of the disaster is still controversial. Notes 1.

The Similarities And Differences Of Beowulf And Robin Hood

Hero. A simple word with tremendous meaning. Every person on this Earth is aware of what a hero is and can even list a few off the top of their head. Heroes come in all shapes, sizes, eras and beliefs and are an essential part of human culture. When going ‘back in time’ to an Anglo-Saxon hero like Beowulf or even hearing about a somewhat modern hero like Robin Hood in todays day and age, one can think of several key differences and similarities that the two heroes share. Heroes are a universal concept, but not every hero is universally the same. Although the concept of a hero stretches around the globe, not every hero is a carbon-copy of another. The main difference between a hero like Beowulf and a hero like Robin Hood is their†¦show more content†¦Examples of Beowulf exhibiting these traits would be his bravery of continuing to fight, even after a man was brutally killed and eaten in front of him, his intelligence by knowing or at least suspecting that Grendel had put a spell on all metal objects so that they cannot hurt him and the courage to face a monster at all, especially when his own men doubt they will live. Robin Hood displays these traits as well since it is his courage to â€Å"stick it to the man† that helps the people of Sherwood Forest, bravery to face the Sheriff of Nottingham and his guards, and intelligence of knowing when and how to steal to provide for his people. His actions save the people of Sherwood Forest from an otherwise guaranteed enslaved, penniless existence. Although Beowulf and Robin Hood each have their own unique set of heroic characteristics, they do share some of the basic principles that all heroes share. Along with characteristics, every hero found in any story has a core value that motivates them and in almost any case, this core value involves protecting someone or something. This value has stretched through time, affecting both Beowulf, Robin Hood and even modern-day heroes such as the Avengers. Robin Hood and Beowulf are both motivated by this value and will go to the ends of their resources to protect their respective people from injustice and cruelty. Beowulf risks his life on more than one occasion to protect the righteous Anglo-Saxons

Is It Important For Our Society - 2029 Words

Staying socially aware of what is currently going on in your society is a key task that helps build the very fabric of this economy. Human’s constant eagerness to stay socially aware throughout the years of pastime wars and of the ever-changing economy has made the world what it is today. If humans in the past had not been so politically and socially aware of what was going on in their country and if we did not have that desire to want to know what is currently going on in the world, then the abundance of news and headlines we receive from the media each day would not exist. Our constant want to know and our desire to stay socially aware has built the very foundation of the world news and the media. If there were no world news, social media, newspapers, and magazine corporations, citizens would not have any source of knowing what is currently going on around them. It is a blessing on how fairly simple it is to find out what is going on in the outside world. I believe it is cru cially important to stay politically and socially aware of your economy and society, because it deals heavily with the means of improvements and adjustments that should be made within the country annually. Our social awareness helps keep our society and culture running.

This Theatre stretches back to the eighteenth century when it was inaugurated in January of 1732 in the bosom of Valletta, which means it has survived a long period of histories and now it holds within it a heritage which is unreplaceable and alone. img alt="" src=""/ Dating back to the early old ages of the eighteenth century, the Grandmaster of the Order of Malta at that clip was Grandmaster Antonio Manoel de Vilhena. As a swayer, he planned and constructed assorted military and civil edifices, such as the garrison in Marsamxett known as Fort Manoel. Fortunately, at that clip, the Grandmaster started to admit theatrical public presentations by the Italian knights of the Order of St. John ( in their hostel ) , every bit good as a Maltese group that used to play comedies and musical amusement, ( in the same hostel ) some of which were rather successful. Therefore Grandmaster Antonio Manoel de Vilhena set up a foundation (Fondazione Manoel) which decided to buy two houses in Strada del Carmine, now known as ‘Triq it-Teatru l-Antik ‘ , at the cost of 2,186scudiso that a new theater could be built at this location. Francois Mondion is said to hold been one of the senior designers employed by Grandmaster Vilhena, that designed and built the new theater, but there is still doubt and uncertainness regarding who the existent designer of the theater was. On the 16th of March 1731, work started on site which was of an country of 94.5 square canes, which was a Maltese unit of measuring used at that clip and consequences to about 414 m? . Since many old ages have passed since the twenty-four hours it was built, the aesthetics, frontage and form are without any uncertainty different from what had been originally constructed in 1732. However, it can still be pointed out that there is a great chance that it might hold been influenced by two theaters in Palermo at that clip. Besides, it is clear that the original form of the auditorium was in the signifier of a U, being described ( by De Lucca and Tonna ) as somewhat retrograde for its clip, with the phase being projected by two consecutive sides. The modern-day papers Cabreo Vilhena describes the interior portion of the theater as it was formatted originally, holding a sum of 39 boxes and a cavity furnished with benches. The boxes were divided into three grades: the first grade being used by the grandmaster ‘s pages ; the 2nd grade was used by the grandmaster and his cortege ; and the 3rd grade was known as ‘the Gods ‘ where the seats are rather high and distant from the phase. A figure of appliances and machines used to do scenes even more Godhead and spectacular where found on the same degree of ‘the Gods ‘ grade. The Manoel Theatre was and still is a theater which maps like many others with some of its parts being the wings and background, every bit good as â€Å"a shop room for the lamps that illuminated the auditoriumâ€Å" . The wing is the country and portion of the phase which is used by the performing artist to fix to come in and is besides used as a storage infinite for set scenery and proficient equipment. Obviously, this portion of the theater is masked by legion long curtains for privateness. On the other manus, the background was the background to any scene of a phase set. Manoel Theatre besides had: the chief entryway ; the phase ; a little room for invitees (saletta) ; a corridor in the signifier of a U-shape ; and a basement found below the phase. As can be seen by the exposure of the original frontage of the theater below, two olympian pillars flanked the front door and supported the balcony above it. The whole Manoel Theatre was surprisingly finished and completed after a sp eedy 10 months. img alt="download.jpg" src=""/ At the early times of Manoel Theatre ‘s startup, the Baroque manner was booming and at its highest point in Europe. Architecture was non the lone of import factor during churrigueresque clip but other factors should be considered. Performing humanistic disciplines such as opera itself were going really of import during this clip and could be categorized into two parts:‘opera seria ‘and‘operabuffa ‘. This means that great public presentations and composings were expected to come with this new theater, besides with the reaching of celebrated composers. The 19th of January 1732 marked an of import day of the month for the Manoel Theatre since the first public presentation was held on this day. ‘Merope ‘( as it was called ) depicted calamities of that century and was acted by the Italian knights of the Order themselves as a mark of regard and baronial work chosen for the startup of the theater. Following this public presentation, were two comedies traveling by the name of ‘Il Giocatore Disperato ‘and ‘Don Pilone ‘. Besides, other public presentations were held during this clip, largely comedies, but unluckily their names are unknown so non much information is available about them. It is of import to observe that from such early times the theater started to be used for other activities such as a locale for carnival balls. During the regulation of Vilhena, there are no more histories of theatrical composings and public presentations but we do hold the memoirs of Carlo Goldoni which do give us an thou ght of how it felt like to be in the Manoel Theatre. Sequence to Vilhena ‘s regulation was Despuig who ne’er attended the theater for his ain grounds, but after him there was the powerful Grandmaster Manoel de Pinto Fonseca who was so in love with theater and public presentation humanistic disciplines that three yearss after he was elected he attended an opera at the theater. It is cardinal to retrieve that during the eighteenth century Manoel Theatre was one of the really few topographic points where the knights and certain types of people could be entertained. You read "Studies in Maltese Architecture" in category "Essay examples" Priests were besides acute on keeping their ain public presentations and dramas, even though at these times they merely accepted work forces to go to their dramas. Grandmaster Pinto de Fonseca went to the theater for the last clip at the age of 92 demoing the great love and regard he had for this type of art. Giovanni Artuffo presented and introduced legion operas by three different composers in the early 1750s. All of their plants were admired by the knights and the Maltese people ( less sophisticated but still enthusiastic about the opera itself ) . Just one or really few non-operatic plants were performed during this period. It is besides noteworthy that the old ages 1768-70 a adult female was given the impresa which happens really seldom, in fact she was the lone adult female to be given such power during that century. Besides, a few old ages subsequently Natale Marini made a program and theoretical account of the theater ‘s interior and phase since the theater was under uninterrupted wear but there is no record demoing renewing work. This century marks the debut of a immature endowment Nicolo Isuoard who was set to go one of Paris ‘ most popular composers of amusing opera subsequently on. img alt="" src=""In 1796 the Gallic arrived and took over Malta, and Napoleon expelled the Order of St. John from Malta in 1798, so the theater had been leased to four individuals. The invasion of the French caused some immediate jobs since the Italian vocalists and instrumentalists organizing portion of the opera of Manoel Theatre were obliged to remain in Malta, so they wanted an addition in their pay. The monetary values and rewards which were making the jobs were shortly fixed and taken attention of. In September 1798, Nicolo Isouard was appointed commissioner for theatre whilst Pietro Paolo Muscat became the exclusive showman as he bought all the portions. During this period, Manoel Theatre was confronting a batch of jobs and was at a clip of crisis, with the attending at the theater most likely worsening sinc e the vocalists were non being changed and the fort started to lose involvement. With all these debatable state of affairss, Isouard was kept busy most of the clip seeking to happen a solution to better the state of affairs. In 1799 the theater got involuntarily involved in a atrocious episode in Maltese history when the Maltese were be aftering to assail and scupper the Gallic within the walls of Valletta itself. Manoel Theatre got involved in the narrative because Vaubois ordered Isouard to set on a show on a Friday ( a twenty-four hours when no operas or comedies were of all time performed ) to move as a distraction for the Gallic. However, the program was discovered and several plotters were executed in the square in forepart of the Magisterial Palace. By the early 1800s, the Italian company had had plenty and did non desire to execute any longer, and so the theater was forced to shut with the going of the Italians from Valletta. Manoel Theatre was so reopened and a important event occurred when it was decided that a Maltese play group was to execute on a regular basis inside the theater. This was rather a important measure in Maltese history. In 1800, the Gallic were driven to a point where they cou ld non shack in Malta any longer, ( with the aid of the British ) so they decided to go forth, taking with them Nicolo Isuardo who was regarded as a treasonist and ne’er to return to Malta. After helping to throw out the Gallic, the British found themselves crowned head of the Maltese Islands. Unfortunately, during the going of the Gallic and the early 1801, no public presentations seem to hold taken topographic point inside Theatre Manoel but at least it was surely used for the organisation of balls since Aeneas Anderson tells us that he attended a public ball at the Opera House during this period. Italian opera is reintroduced one time once more and the public presentations are described as great amusement with merely a few little jobs. Besides the fact that non everyone could come in the theater or take his topographic point was acquiring on some people ‘s nervousnesss. In 1812, George Whitmore of the Royal Engineers was â€Å" to reconstruct the edifice exhaustively, to increase the figure of boxes†¦ and to adorn the full edifice in a modern, simple and elegant manner † . Oakes and Whitmore had a big influence on the aesthetics of the theater as it is nowadays since they did hole and alteration rather a batch of parts. In fact, the tallness of the edifice was raised higher with a new roof being built, the floor of the cavity was re-laid, the brackets were removed and the boxes were opened up for better visibleness, and a 4th grade was added. Besides, the dressing suites for performing artists was increased and the phase enlarged. This resulted in the auditorium holding an egg-shaped form, which is still present with that same form presents. The British made sure to re-introduce theprotettore, which was occupied by a citizen of high standing, and the besides reintroduced the system of naming an showman, with the first showmans being three. Showmans had rather a hazardous concern with the hazard of hardly doing any money since they had provide amusement and public presentations all the clip throughout the whole twelvemonth. These apart from holding to pay the rent, had to engage vocalists and terpsichoreans to come to Malta which could take to economical battles. In fact, during 1817-18 the fundss for Manoel Theatre were so bad that both the rent and the admittance monetary values were reduced. The immature British officers, as were the knights, needed to utilize the free clip they had, so for some of them theatre was their interest. We do hold histories of information about legion dramas in English which were held at the Manuel Theatre such as the celebrated workThe Clandestine Marriageby Colman and Garrick. The nineteenth century besides marks another of import milepost in native Maltese play because dramas started to be performed in Maltese linguistic communication as described by the British officer Anderson. The first full length drama was called ‘Caterina, ix-Xbejba tal-Irdum ‘ . Opera, on the other manus, was deemed as more of import during the British regulation, it was the reigning genre. The figure of new operas to be performed per twelvemonth settled at four and bothopera seriaandopera buffaperformed in the early decennaries. A figure of vocalists were so loved and respected a batch by the audience as were Camilla Darbois and Lorenzo Del Riccio amongs t some others, to the point that they ended up settling in Malta ( as they were foreign ) . One should besides retrieve that during their reign, Manoel theater was used for a figure of great occasions as was done for the return of Governor Sir Thomas Maitland. Subsequently along the nineteenth century, Manoel Theatre had become such a load on the authorities because of showmans and the fact that the theater was now an aged edifice with excessively many fixs to be done, it was agreed that a new opera house ( The Royal Opera house ) was to be built. This led to the Manoel Theatre falling into private custodies when Anacleto Conti decided to purchase Mifsud ‘s half portion and go the exclusive proprietor. By 1866 the Royal Opera House was ready to be used and Manoel Theatre ready to be abandoned for good. Manoel Theatre was besides stripped from its rubric ( Theatre Royal ) and named after the Grandmaster Antonio Manoel de Vilhena. Between 1866 and 1873, Manoel Theatre had its ruin, it was hardly used and when used merely for dramas by Maltese amateurs. Since it was hardly used, no care, fixs or renovating were done and it continued to deteriorate. In 1873, a calamity occurred in Valletta when the Royal Opera House was unluckily destroyed and beyond fix. At least from this calamity, Malta regained back a forgotten treasure, that is the Manoel Theatre. Since operas and dramas urgently needed a moderately good topographic point to be performed, what better pick was at that place than the Manoel Theatre? Conti ( the proprietor of the theater ) could non believe his fortune when his theater started to be used and after some clip besides repaired. What really did salvage the theater from traveling downhill for good was the new genre of theater, called ‘operetta ‘ . Since Manoel Theatre had long been unused as a proper theater, its proprietors had to do a figure of efforts at re-establishing it as an opera house. Fortunately, they managed to set up the theater for a figure of seasons and the plants started to increase, accordingly taking to a successful and positive season. In 1882, Arpa decided to buy the Manoel Theatre from Conti and after some clip realized that something had to be done to vie with the Rjal, so many fixs and redecorations were undertaken. On a positive note, Manoel Theatre had some really successful seasons at the terminal of the 1880s, one of the most of import dramas being‘Birichino Al Teatro‘ . After some old ages, Arpa could non pay back the financess he borrowed from G. Gollcher, and so Gollcher decided to take legal actions and purchase the theater himself. The Gollchers did do some few changes and redecorations for the better since they managed the theater themselves for several more old ages. The MADC, which is a popular play group that formed in 1910 with the amalgamation of two groups of play, used to execute a batch in Manoel Theatre and inspired many other groups. In the twentieth century,‘Romanticismo ‘was repeated a figure of times in the theater and after some clip Manoel Theatre besides became a film but unrecorded theater was non banished. The Second World War did somewhat decelerate down Manoel Theatre, but surprisingly composings were still being shown and people were still go toing the theater to be entertained. The Maltese Government, at that clip Malta Labour Party, decided to purchase back Manoel Theatre so as to continue it and its historical heritage. When the theater was acquired, Vera Lindsay and Richard Southmen were commissioned to give recommendations on the resurgence of the Manoel Theatre. Numerous sum of alterations and changes had to be done so refurbishment started instantly. In 1960 the first Manoel Theatre direction commission was set up and they had to do certain that the gap would be a genuinely great one. Fortunately, the gap was a successful event. Presents, Manoel Theatre has continued to populate up to its outlooks and better since it continues to expose many theatrical productions and public presentations both in the Maltese and English linguistic communication, with opera being basically of import, play, dancing, musical shows, and the one-year MADC Christmas dumb show. The Manoel Theatre has been home to countless famous persons and astonishing endowments such as Joseph Callejla, Boris Christoff, Louis Kenter, John Neville and many others. The theatre direction commission president right now is Michael Grech and the deputy president Kenneth Zammit. The theater besides has a museum ( which shows the history of the topographic point ) , and a gift store. It is astonishing to see that this theater managed to survived through all these old ages, all this history shacking within merely one edifice. It has such great intrinsic value, non merely to us but besides to the whole of Europe, that it should be taken attention of and pr eserved for the longest clip possible.

Isolation Through Symbolism in Nathaniel Hawthorne Essay Example For Students

Isolation Through Symbolism in Nathaniel Hawthorne Essay s The Scarlet LetteIsolation Through Symbolism in Nathaniel Hawthornes The Scarlet LetterA symbol is an object used to stand for something else. Symbolism has a hidden meaning lying within it; these meanings unite to form a more detailed theme. Symbolism is widely used in The Scarlet Letter to help the reader better understand the deep meanings Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays throughout his novel. He shows that sin, known or unknown to the community, isolates a person from their community and from God. Hawthorne also shows this by symbols in nature around the town, natural symbols in the heavens, and nature in the forest. First, two symbols in the town show how sin isolate people. In the first chapter there is a plant that stands out, But on one side of the portal, and rooted almost at the threshold, was a wild rosebush, covered, in this month of June, with its delicate gems (46). It stands out as wild and different among the grass and weeds as Hester does in the Puritan town. She wears her scarlet letter as the rosebush wears its scarlet blossoms. Later in the book Arthur Dimmesdale and Roger Chillingworth (Hesters unknown husband) discuss a strange dark plant that Chillingworth discovered. I found them growing on a grave that bore no tombstone, nor other memorial of the dead man, save these ugly weeds that have taken upon themselves to keep him in remembrance. They grew out of his heart, and typify, it maybe, some hideous secret that was buried with him, and which he had done better to confess during his lifetime (127). Here there is a man whose sin was not publicly discovered while he was alive. Th is person tried to keep wrongdoing a secret by hiding it within himself. Yet the sin was too strong to hide and later reveled after his death. There remains nothing honorable about the place where this person lies, but the weed that grew out of the blackness of this persons heart. The next area is a symbol in the heavens. This occurs during the second famous scaffold scene. Dimmesdale, Hester, and Pearl are on the scaffold when, a light gleamed far and wide over all the muffled sky. It was doubtless caused by one of those meteors (150). The minister looking upward to the zenith, beheld there the appearance of an immense letter-the letter A- marked out in lines of dull red light (152). This is a sign of Gods disapproval of the two sinners, especially Dimmesdale. Hester has already been discovered and is receiving her punishment by wearing the scarlet letter. Dimmesdale, however, hides his sin from people and because of this, heaven shows by natural forces that he is no longer welcome. Last to be discussed are the natural symbols that are encountered in the forest. When Hester meets Dimmesdale in the forest, all the sorrow of the past few years is brought up. The natural surrounding begin to respond to their pain, The boughs are tossing heavily above their heads ; while one solemn old tree groaned dolefully to another, as if telling the sad story of the pair that sat beneath, or constrained to forebode evil to come (192). Even the natural world around them could sense the unfairness in their situation and how society has caused them to live a lie or deny themselves what they really want (each other). Later in the same scene Hester and Dimmesdale decide to escape together in a moment of joy, Hester takes off her scarlet letter and threw it on the bank of the river. She thinks she can remove guilt as easily as the letter itself. When the river does not carry the letter away, it shows she is doomed to her shame. .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 , .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .postImageUrl , .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .centered-text-area { min-height: 80px; position: relative; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 , .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:hover , .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:visited , .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:active { border:0!important; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .clearfix:after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 { display: block; transition: background-color 250ms; webkit-transition: background-color 250ms; width: 100%; opacity: 1; transition: opacity 250ms; webkit-transition: opacity 250ms; background-color: #95A5A6; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:active , .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:hover { opacity: 1; transition: opacity 250ms; webkit-transition: opacity 250ms; background-color: #2C3E50; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .centered-text-area { width: 100%; position: relative ; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .ctaText { border-bottom: 0 solid #fff; color: #2980B9; font-size: 16px; font-weight: bold; margin: 0; padding: 0; text-decoration: underline; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .postTitle { color: #FFFFFF; font-size: 16px; font-weight: 600; margin: 0; padding: 0; width: 100%; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .ctaButton { background-color: #7F8C8D!important; color: #2980B9; border: none; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: none; font-size: 14px; font-weight: bold; line-height: 26px; moz-border-radius: 3px; text-align: center; text-decoration: none; text-shadow: none; width: 80px; min-height: 80px; background: url(; position: absolute; right: 0; top: 0; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:hover .ctaButton { background-color: #34495E!important; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .centered-text { display: table; height: 80px; padding-left : 18px; top: 0; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38 .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38-content { display: table-cell; margin: 0; padding: 0; padding-right: 108px; position: relative; vertical-align: middle; width: 100%; } .u507347a895f1a5361dc53466127dff38:after { content: ""; display: block; clear: both; } READ: The Trial Of Anne Hutchinson EssayIn conclusion, Hawthorne uses symbolism in nature around the town, natural symbols in the heavens, and nature in the forest, to show how sin leads to isolation. The main sinners of this novel are constantly set apart from others, and the whole world is in disapproval. A lesson should be learned from the theme of Hawthornes novel. Isolation is only one of the many effects of sin. Words/ Pages : 722 / 24

Bob Marley Music in Our Generation free essay sample

Over the decades the musical culture in America has changed considerably. From psychedelic to rock n roll, disco to heavy metal, punk rock to soft rock. Now hip-hop and rap seem to be the current musical Infatuation In our era. Yet were forgetting that somewhere In that time frame, around the sasss a music form known as reggae emerged from the little Island of Jamaica, and with It came a man that will never be forgotten. HIS name was Robert Nests Marled although he was better known to us as Bob Marled and he changed our world forever. Marbles music was unleashed onAmerica and the world in the mid to late asss with explosive popularity. For unlike much of the music that had been heard, Marbles work was so much more than Just music it was a message for all to hear, a message that we could better the world in which we live. Marbles beautifully constructed lyrics inspired and moved people to not sit quietly and do nothing while their world is being destroyed by the evils of violence and racism. Bob Marled without a doubt helped lessen the problems that plague this world but racism and violence amongst fellow human beings Is certainly till occurring.So one cannot help but speculate, If a single artist can have such a positive Influence on so many people through his music then why are our current chart-topping music artists not following In his footsteps and doing the same? Bob Marled Is undeniably an icon of social change within not only America, but also around the world where his music has been heard. Author Anthony Bogus in his article Get up, Stand up: The Redemptive Poetics of Bob Marled even goes as far as to compare Marled to Martin Luther King Jar. Engine the evidence that they both Todd strongly for social change in a time when we most surely needed it. Bogus writes, common to both King and Marled was the universalism, a commitment to social change, and the fact that both were prophetic voices whose visions of a new world were rooted in the struggles against racial domination and oppression (563). However Is It really fair to compare a dreadlocks head, ganja smoking reggae artist to one of the greatest men In American civil rights history?The answer is most definitely yes; Marled Is more than worthy of this comparison, for Just Like King he was a figure o whom the oppressed people could look up to for hope. He stood for what he believed in and he didnt back down no matter what the consequences may be. For instance, in December of 1 976 Marled was asked to play at Smile Jamaica, a free outdoor concert that was organized by the Jamaican Prime Minister as an attempt to plea for peace and ease the tension between the two warring political groups.But two days before Marled was scheduled to play at the event two cars full of unknown gunmen broke into his house with guns blazing and seriously wounded Bob in his chest and arm. Nevertheless when it came time for Marled to perform he walked out on stage and did so. This man had a mission and he wasnt going to allow anyone to stop him from spreading his message. He once said God sent me on earth, he send me to do something, and nobody can stop me. If God want to stop me, then I stop. Man never can (573).This Is Just one example of the mans dedication to his cause of using music and the music Industry as a source to spread his message to the masses. Marled couldnt be more unlike the artists of today in the sense that his rather he had a greater purpose. Again Bogus talks about this in his piece, saying [Marled] consistently navigated the music business, trying not to get trapped in its glitz and glamour, since for him the Justification for the entire enterprise was the use of his artistic gifts as a medium of prophetic social criticism (564). With our rap and hip-hop artists of today it seems that money, cars and blind-blind are their necessities. They measuring their success based on how many Beverly Hills mansions they own rather than how many people theyve inspired or how many lives theyve changed. When this happens they loose sight of what truly matters. In another article titled One Love author Robert Palmer further reinforces the truth that Marled never faltered from his objective of informing the world about the suffering and oppression that so many less fortunate, poor human beings were and currently are experiencing.Palmer states, [Marled] never lost sight of the emotional center of his art his people, the suffers of Truncheon, of greater Kingston, of all the worlds ghettos. They placed their faith and hope in him, and he did not let them down (570). Yet when it comes to our rap artists who originate from poor urban spinsterhood or ghettos, Just as Marled once did, their music doesnt sing (or rap) about hope and change. Instead, from what Vive heard they sing about such things as being revolting against the law by using phrases like [emailprotected]#K the police, now thats inspiring.I have to wonder what kind of change they hope to accomplish with messages like these? Although Palmers article touches a little on Marbles message within his music, it mainly centered on the history of Bob Marled and the Wailers, laying out the details of their rise to international stardom. While in Bogus article he mess to focus on talking about how Marled belonged to a prophetic black radical tradition (Bogus 564), using symbolic insurgency to primarily strive for the equal treatment of African-American.Though this may be true, Marled strongly believed in equal treatment for all, no matter what the color of their skin may be. Be it, Whites, African-Americans or Hispanics, to Marled it didnt matter, he sang his message for all. This is never more evident than in such songs of Marbles as War, where he sings that human beings will always be fighting wars, until the philosophy which hold one ace superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned and until the color of a mans skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes.Nowadays, with our most popular musical form being that of hip- hop and rap, you will never find lyrics like that of Marbles in any of these songs. Instead all we seem to hear when we listen to this music are lyrics about committing violent acts. Instead of one love they sing about busting a cap into another persons ass. Instead of redemption songs they sing about discriminating women by offering to them as female dogs and hoes, which I thought were gardening tools.If Marled were still alive today he would be disgusted to hear the lyrics and the kinds of messages that the artists of our days are singing about. In fact these artists are singing, representing and even glorifying exactly the opposite stance in which Marled had taken towards the issues of violence, oppression, and discrimination. They should instead be learning from Marbles example. They should understand how much of a difference music that sings of change within our world can lift people up and influence them to take a stand. This is so significant because with our artists tasteless form of entertainment.While the musical artists of today are quite different than Marled they still share one thing in common; they have the power to influence their listeners through their music. Fortunately, unlike the artists of the present, Marled chose to influence his listeners with positive messages that truly spoke to them. When I say them I dont only mean the oppressed or the poor or the minorities but everyone, for the beauty of Marbles music is that while it holds a special significance for the sufferers of this roll, it speaks to any listener with an open heart (Palmer 574).Marled understood that with the power to influence mass numbers of people comes the responsibility to use it in a positive and constructive manner. Im not one to point fingers but the music artists of today are not using their power responsibly. This may be the reason why crime rates are pup, and gang related violence is more frequent. Musical influence can play a huge part in a persons life, especially if that individual is young. Perhaps this is why we have seen so many horrible and unnecessary school hooting happen within the last decade.Music artists need to understand the kind of power they possess. They need to understand that they have fans in this world that desire to be Just like them, so it is crucial that they watch what they preach in their music because even if they dont mean what they say there is some adoring fan out there who is going to listen to those lyrics and follow them like instructions. Yet admiring an artist to this degree only becomes dangerous when the message within that artists music is dangerous. So why are these songs with their dangerous assuages so popular in our culture?Is it because songs that sing of universal peace and love stopped selling when the asss died? Or is it because we as a people have just become increasingly more violent? Whatever the reason one thing is for sure, m usic artist of today must learn from Marbles work for he managed to to forge a visionary music that opposed the tide of violence and celebrated the rhythms of life (Palmer 574). This was exactly the sort of music the world needed to hear in the sasss and it is exactly the sort of music we need to hear now!
