BBC Radio Website Country Report: Peru 2006

I choose Peru because I believe it is a country full of culture and different environments. I plan on reviewing how music has evolved through modern civilization of Peruvian societies. Many different ways to make music have been discovered and broaden through different time periods, I plan to understand different instruments that are played and used in this style of music that this culture has embraced. Peruvians see music as something in which to participate, and not as a spectacle. Peruvian music dates back in ancient time to the Inca civilization, these are times when most of the civilization made their own instruments. In ancient times the people used metals, cane, bamboo, bone, sea shells, and also mud to create the first Peruvian music. These ancient instruments gave the Peruvian people the inspiration they needed to further polish their musical genre. Eventually Spanish conquistadors invaded Peru which exposed the country to a broader variety of instruments, which have been adapted and integrated into the Peruvian society. Instruments such as the guitar, the violin, and the harp were highly approved in the local communities. In “The Music of Ayacucho” Lucy Duran explores music of Ayacucho, in the remote region of Andean. The program starts off by featuring a session by Manulcha Prado. It consisted of the classic Elcondor Passa on a unique Peruvian made harp. Duran visits with a young artist that is only twenty-two years old. This artist goes by the name of Puspo. Puspo has five wives and seventeen children; the program tells that he loves women very much. His first impression when arrived from the mountains he thought that it was such a big society. Puspo comes from a small village where he farmed his sheep, cattle and other various animals. Puspo said that as he arrived in the city the…...

...Essay about Peru (Final Version) By: John Warren Professor: Dr. Smith ENG 090 November, 13, 2012 Peru I was born in Peru; I lived there when I was a kid, I enjoyed living in this beautiful country; the life is very different than it is in United States, people are happier and closer than Americans. Other thing that I like is the night life; Peruvians like to dance salsa, you will see a lot of people in the night clubs every weekend. One of my favorite places is The Pizza Street (la calle de las pizzas); at this place you will find the perfect combination of restaurants and night clubs. Anytime I go to Peru, my friends and I always go to parties and have fun, I would like to go back to live, it’s a lot of jobs for bilingual people, things are not too expensive, and the economy is very stable now. In Lima there is a lot of Chinese food which is called chifa (several thousand Chinese restaurants in Lima) which is not the typical Chinese restaurants that we have in America, and fast food restaurants from around the world. In Lima we eat a lot of fish and rice. In the mountains they eat a lot of potatoes. In Cuzco they eat cuy (fried guinea pig) but that is not common in Lima. The Supermarkets are pretty wow, with everything you can imagine, and most things they have for tasting, including the alcohol. Still, there are no flavored chips, for some reason, Peru has not picked up the idea of flavored potato chips, which really is beyond me. But, the chocolate is good. Clothes,......

Peru

...HISTORY The history of Peru spans several millennia. Peruvian territory was home to the Norte Chico civilization, one of the oldest in the world, and to the Inca Empire, the largest state in Pre-Columbian America. It was conquered by the Spanish Empire in the 16th century, which established a Viceroyalty with jurisdiction over most of its South American domains. Independence was declared in 1821 but consolidated only after the Battle of Ayacucho, three years later. GEOGRAPHY Peru is a country on the central western coast of South America. Peru covers 1,285,220 km² (496,193 sq mi). It neighbors Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Brazil to the east, Bolivia to the southeast, Chile to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west CLIMATE The combination of tropical latitude, various mountain ranges, topography variations and two ocean currents (Humboldt and El Niño) gives Peru a large diversity of climates. DEMOGRAPHY Peru is a multicultural and multiethnic country. Peruvian census does not contain information about ethnicity so only rough estimates are available. Its population can be composed of Amerindians: 45%, mestizos: 37%, European: 15%, and Asians, Afro-Peruvians, and others: 3%.[1]. Amerindians are found in the southern Andes, though a large portion are also to be found in the southern and central coast due to the massive internal labor migration from remote Andean regions to coastal cities,during the past four decades. While the Andes are the "heart" of the......

The administration's Middle East envoy George Mitchell is heading back to the region to hold meetings with Israelis and Palestinians.

Despite weeks of international pressure, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not extend the moratorium. There is no deal in sight.

...the labor force in agriculture could in theory have helped to alleviate rural poverty by leaving higher average land holdings to those remaining in agriculture. But the absolute number of people trying to make a living from inadequate land holdings actually increased. The labor force in agriculture rose 52 percent between 1960 and 1990. In addition, emigration from agriculture exerted increasing pressure on labor markets in the cities, and the increase in rural workers kept earnings low in that sector. A growing labor force need not drive wages down and in most instances does not, provided that investment and technical change keep opening up new opportunities for productive employment fast enough to absorb the larger number of workers. Peru managed to accomplish such growth in the first post-World War II decades, but from the early 1970s the trend went downward. As more and more workers tried to survive in the service sector by selfemployment or work with families instead of formally registered firms, they created a rapidly growing informal sector. Workers in the informal sector are mostly employed, and they certainly add to national income, but their earnings are often below the poverty line. Overt unemployment that can actually be counted has been only a small part of the problem. The overt unemployment level in Lima was an estimated 7 percent in 1980, rising to 8 percent by 1990. But estimates of underemployment in part-time or very low-income activities indicate......

...Arbasak 4/6/14 Peru The first inhabitants of Peru were nomadic hunter-gatherers who lived in caves in Peru's coastal regions. Though Peru was home to many diverse indigenous cultures throughout its history, Peru is famous for the Incan culture. When someone thinks about the past of Peru, the first thought for many is Inca civilization. Peru is also well known for its archaeological wealth. Many archaeologists find Peru’s ancient sites and cultures as endlessly fascinating equal to places like Mexico, Egypt, and the Mediterranean. Peru is still very rich in its old cultural architecture, seeing these sites are very rewarding. It's the multiple layers of great civilizations that make Peru so fascinating. Cobblestone streets preserve the era of the Conquistadors, the ruins of the lost city of Machu Pichu remind travelers of the once mighty Inca Empire, and the mysterious Nazca lines that remain unexplained today. Machu Pichu is one of the great wonders of the world and its surprised me how high the mountains peak. It sits 7,970 feet (2,430 meters) above sea level on the eastern slope of the Andes and overlooks the Urubamba River hundreds of feet below. Peru is located on South America's central Pacific coast. It is the twentieth-largest nation in the world, and borders Bolivia, Brazil, and Chile, Colombia and Ecuador. Lima is the capital of Peru and is located on the central coast.

...RADIO FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION Introduction RFID is a technology which enables detecting and identifying objects using electromagnetic radio waves. This is processed through exchange of information between a reader and a tag being attached to the object that includes the data associated with the object. This can be used to detect and classify vehicles, animals, patients, shipment goods and airline baggage. [1] RFID technology involves two main components, they are transponders which are also known as tags or labels, contain the relevant information about the object and other the interrogators, also known as readers or transceivers, that extract the data from the tags. These tags can be passive or active tags. Passive tags use the energy from the EM radiation of the reader for its processing, where as active tags receive power from an internal battery for its processing and communication with the reader. An integrated electronic circuit is embedded in tags for storage and processing operations and an antenna that transmits and receives the RF signal. [2] Figure : components of RFID Source : http://www.docstoc.com/docs/17328767/Draft-SP800-98 The tags used in RFID are enabled with read-write operations, with a large storage capacity. Data can be modified any number of times. Tag and reader act as two way radio communication in which each antenna carries the modulation and demodulation of RF signals, with operation frequency ranges from low frequency to UHF. As......

...Her story was very interesting and truly inspiring. She got an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Peru and was very keen on working as a field engineer. However, being a woman she was not given the opportunity to work as a field engineer and was restricted to working in the labs. Later she got an opportunity to work as an administrative manager at a company which she keenly took and then later on went on to pursue her MBA from . She specializes in strategic management, organizational design and human resources. With her abundant experience in mining she provided us valuable insights specifically into the mining industry. Peru has an enormous economic strength in the form of multiple mineral deposits and is currently ranked 4th in the world. It currently occupies 7th place among the top 10 leading mineral producing countries, with an estimated production value of US$ 27,063 million. The primary competitive advantage for Peruvian mining is its diversification of minerals being produced: copper, gold, silver, lead, zinc, tin, molybdenum, iron, cadmium, mercury, selenium, indium and other metals. It is the region’s top producer of zinc, tin, lead and gold, and occupies second place in the production of copper, silver, molybdenum, mercury, selenium, cadmium and phosphoric rock. Currently, Peru has a sufficient reserve of minerals to generate a constant flow of metal production for several decades. The high rates of production have attracted a large amount of......
