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 building…...

... parties and it was interesting to learn that the university students in Lima "party" similar to the students at East Carolina University. At college parties in Lima, students dance, talk with each other, drink, sing, and listen to all kinds of music. Fiorella also told me that there are fraternities and sororities at the university. Family culture and traditions are very important to Peruvians. Peru is a very diverse nation and has many cultures that have been incorporated by European, African and Asian migrants. Even though Lima is very modernized, there are small villages outside Lima that still practice traditions from major pre-Hispanic civilizations and still dress similar to what their ancestors used to dress. Lima is a major city bustling with living history and movement. Lima features pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern elements. It is also surrounded by every aspect of nature: the sea, islands, mountains, desert, and plant life. It offers an active and modern nightlife and also a well-endowed cultural scene. Lima has public transport and non-stop activities and traditional festivals. At some of the festivals that they have, everyone dresses up in traditional clothing to honor their ancestors.For example, Fiorella mentioned Month of the Lord of the Miracles which takes place October 18th, 27th, and 28th. The processions take place during the month of October, in which all Lima is dressed in purple for the most spectacular and attended to...

... 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 that 26 percent of Lima's labor force was in this category in 1980, and fully 86 percent in 1990. Such measures are invariably somewhat arbitrary, depending on how underemployment is defined and measured. However, the fact that the share of Lima's labor force fitting the definition more than tripled between 1980 and 1990 is readily understandable in the light of......

Join Susan Fearn and members of the World Service class of 2001 for this programme that focuses on using the library. CLIP: Clare Woodhouse My name is Clare, welcome to University College London Library. We're in the Arts and Humanities Library at the moment… Susan: Clare Woodhouse works in a busy university library. CLIP: Clare Woodhouse On a typical day, on the issue desk when we first come out we empty the book bin - where you leave books after the issue desk is closed. So we return those first thing in the morning, switch on the computers, change the date stamps and then we open at 9.30, and students can come in from that point.

... (significant for trade credit), and corruption level (important for analyzing perceived levels of public sector corruption). Based on the macro economic analysis, the top three promising economies were Peru, Ecuador and Panama- all the economic data used for the macro economic analysis was obtained from the World Bank Database. Once we obtained the top three nations, we conducted a thorough analysis of each country’s infrastructure investment levels to identify where the most promising market was for Cooley. As a result, the research showed that the most prominent nation was Peru- followed by Panama and Ecuador respectively. By conducting this research, we were able to realize the vast market opportunity that Cooley has in Peru. According to Business Monitor, Peru is planning to oversee more than $20.5 billion USD in infrastructure between 2011 and 2016. (Peru Infrastructure Report, 5) INDUSTRY: For the Peruvian market, we decided to focus in the infrastructure industry. Total investment for this industry in Peru is expected to grow at a 12% year-to-year rate from 2011 until 2016. At the same time, construction investment is estimated to increase at an 8.2% rate between 2013- 2017. (Peru Infrastrucutre Report, 5) Hence, most of the construction growth over the next years will be derived from strong demand for infrastructure due to economic development in the next decade. Ultimately, this will generate investors’ confidence in the Peruvian market and......

Peru Genocide

...A genocide is the destruction of an ethnic, racial or religious group. Multiple genocides have happened throughout history and those are a major part of how the world became the way it is today. One factful genocide is the Peru genocide which happened many many years ago. The Peru genocide was not a well known genocide but it was still very important to Peru and it's surroundings. The genocide had many important factors and caused world reactions because of it. The Peru genocide was led by Jose Gabriel Tupac Amaru who was known as Tupac Amaru II. He was the leader of the genocide against the Spanish in Peru. The Peru genocide wasn't successful but Tupac went on in his life to being apart of Peru's struggle for their country's independence. The Peru genocide was known as Tupacs rebellion and was one of his many uprisings. The Peru genocide was about Tupac calling for an alliance among native whites, mestizos, and indigenous people against European-born Spaniards. Tupac Amaru's genocide became mainly indigenous and completely out of control. The rebellions of Americanos against Spaniards could easily become more wars against the entire white ruling class. Native-born whites in Mexico and Peru were among the last on the continent to embrace the patriot cause during the wars of independence(Tupac Amaru...). The genocide happened many years ago. While Tupac Amaru II was captured and executed in 1781, the rebellion continued for at least another year under...

...Nakisisa Webb Environmental Science 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. The size of Peru is 1,326,074 square kilometers...

Radio

...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...
