A Rock Concert - 660 words
Through the years, rock stars have been providing entertainment with their unique and diverse style of music. However, a live performance by a rock star has an altogether different effect which elates one to higher levels of music thrill. An opportunity of such kind came my way and I grabbed it with both my hands. Music icon Bryan Adams performed in the city of Mumbai in India which I was fortunate to witness. What I did not expect coming, was a memorable journey into the world of sheer rock music. The stage was set on a huge piece of land with lights and all the vital equipments needed for the concert. Giant speakers were placed in the four corners to make the music highly audible. Even bef ...

Palm Sunday - 1,270 words
... . His mission field was a very violent place. He himself had been stabbed twice as he ministered to the people of the community surrounding the church. Once a Puerto Rican woman became involved in the church and was led to Christ. After her conversion she came to the Pastor and said, "I want to do something to help with the church's ministry."

She would find the worst-looking kid on the bus, put him on her lap and whisper ...

Social Mobility - 595 words
In a world where it is hard to get ahead, some people do manage to do it. Most of us spend our lives within our strata in the stratifications system because it is very difficult to move up in the world, as we know it today. While it is quite easy to move down a strata it can also require some effort to just maintain a strata. But for some people, moving up a strata is bound to happen, whether it is a result of structural mobility, or just positional mobility as read about in Chapter 5, they seem able to accomplish a surmountable wall in search of the American dream. Although moving up a strata is very rare in today's society it can be done. A good example is Steve Case, a CEO for America Onl ...

Not A Right Place For Elderly - 341 words
Im a person who does not like to go out very often, and I did not have chance to go to a rock concert. So, the rock concert is a strange place for me. However, my friends did one. After asking my friends about the rock concert to get an idea for my journal assignment, I strongly say that rock concert is not a good idea for elderly people. First of all, getting to a rock concert can take a lot of time. You have at least thirty minutes drive to the rock concert down a congested highway, follow by the hassle of looking for a parking space. Im a young people, but I really hate to drive around to find an empty parking lot, and off course, the elderly people do not like that. And then there is the ...

Techno Schmechno: A Postmodern Approach To Electronica - 1,772 words
... ole seventeen hours of Live Aid in 1985, they cut the one hip-hop act on the bill out: Run-DMC. The focus of house and its follow-ons into the nineties has always been more on the dance floor it seems. The Summers of Love of '89 and '90 were much more about a subculture of hedonism and pleasure than any distinctly political culture, which sub-cultural scene seems to have continued from there. It would be difficult to see electronic music ever becoming distinctly political as it thrives on a depoliticised ethos in any case. One of the more conspicuous features of all the idiolects since house is a genuine lack of personality cults. Where hip-hop retains a focus on the artist, often by imm ...

A Critical Look At Mosh Pits At Rock Concerts - 921 words
The people were everywhere. Too many were in such a small space. The crowd surged forward and back in one relentless wave. No one could help but to push and shove the others around. Someone was lifted into the air and tossed back by the mob. The noise was almost too much, too loud. Security guards and policemen formed a boundary around this group, but did nothing to stop the madness. They stood and watched, ready in case some serious accident should occur. For some strange reason, however, out of all this chaos there was no fear. The people were enjoying this! Then the song was over, and the people in the mosh pit stopped to applaud and cheer for the band on the stage. It is not hard to unde ...

Promotional Activities Of A Mountain Resort - 1,199 words

America In The 1960s - 1,580 words
The Nineteen Sixties was a decade that changed America forever. The people reformed the decade not so much by the government. The Sixties contained more spiritualism, people were against the Vietnam war, protests, civil rights, and new beliefs on every aspect of living.
