BLACK TUESDAY
“Black Tuesday” began in The Bahamas April 27th 1965.Black Tuesday took place not only inside but outside The House Of Assembly. According to Source B Black Tuesday was possibly one of the greatest events in the movement of Bahamian independence. The PLP (Progressive Liberal Party) was formed November 23rd 1953.The PLP consisted of Sir Lynden Pindling, the late Sir Milo Butler, Mr. Cyril Stevenson, Mr. Sammie Issacs, the late Clarence A. Bain, and the late Sir Randol Fawkes. The formation of the PLP was a first for The Bahamas because it introduced party politics. At this time the majority group in the House was the Bay Street Boys, who later formed the UBP (United Bahamian Party). As mentioned by Source B around the time October 1956 at that time, only a few men, those who owned land, could vote. In addition, a man could vote in as many placed as he owned land, every company that owned land could vote, no woman could vote, and 21 years was the qualifying age. The PLP sought to change this desperate state of affairs and the UBP fought them every inch of the way. Between 1959 and1961, the Women’s Suffrage Movement took up the cause of votes for women and in July 1961, the act of voting for women became law. This was a huge step toward majority rule.

The 1962 general election was the first election were all Bahamians including women were allowed to vote. Surprisingly though the UBP won the election over the PLP. This was because workers were threatened to be fired if they voted PLP. Also the UBP said that they were improving the Bahamian economy that change now would frighten tourist and investors who were just coming back from the general strike in 1958. The UBP even suggested that the PLP were not knowledgeable enough to run the country and that if they gained control of government, the economy would be ruined. Another reason the UBP won was…...

Black Fem

...Black feminism is a school of feminism that was founded on the belief that factors such as racism, sexism, and class discrimination are all interwoven factors that lead to oppression, as these factors cannot be separated, but must be tackled together as a unit. Black feminists strive to liberate black women from oppression as they believe this will lead to freedom for all, as factors such as racism, sexism and class oppression will then be eliminated, freeing all people from the boundaries and constraints that oppression creates. This theory of feminism emerged as black women felt that they were subject to a harsher form of oppression than white women. This type of feminist movement was a response to the Feminist Movement, and the Black Liberation movement that was occurring at the time. They believed that the Feminist Movement solely helped white, middle-class women, and that it failed to focus on all women, as there were women — like the black women— who were being oppressed not only by gender, but also by race, and class. They too felt that the Black Liberation Movement focused only on the struggles of black men, and that they were sexually oppressed by this movement. They believed that both of these movements failed to recognized black women, as they were an invisible group. It is believed by the black feminists that they too, like the white feminists, struggle with issues concerning gender, but what differentiates them is that they are faced with being unequal on the...

Tuesday with Morrie

...SSC 1105 LEARNING SKILLS REFLECTIVE JOURNAL (Tuesdays with Morrie) Reflective Journal The most meaningful sentences I found within Tuesday with Morrie was on page 52 when Morrie said, ‘The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.’ In real life, ‘love’ can make people warm, happy, peaceful, and make a person smile. If we share the love among one another, especially with a sincere heart, people soon will feel the love eventually give their love to us too. Love that comes solely from true heart cannot be bought by money, and it is valuable. In my life experiences, I remembered when the time I followed my mother went to old folk’s house, I will feel warm and happy after that. Every time, mum will buy daily life stuff such as rice, bread, some clothes, instant drinks and etc for folks over there, even those things are not expensive and brandy stuff. When they received, I know they feel so touch through the expression on face because they feel there are still have people who care for them. During mum chat with them; I can see their smile on the face. Message I received was that Love is the most powerful thing in the world, so we should learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. ‘Love is the only rational act.’ (pg52) I personally felt that love can let to solve the problem softly as we can think rational within love. We will consider the consequences on each action before we take it. In life...

Ruby Tuesday

...Welcome to Ruby Tuesday 1 Welcome to Ruby Tuesday BUS 100 Dr. Etta Steed Welcome to Ruby Tuesday 2 Ruby Tuesday is a casual dining restaurant that I often visit with my family. On most occasions I am overwhelmed with the menu items. I tend to take long at ordering my food due to indecisiveness. The things that I noticed to be Ruby Tuesday’s strengths are the quality of customer service they offer and the salad bar option. Although the restaurant is one of my favorite I think that the lighting could be better and the pricing on the food can be lower. Overall Ruby Tuesday is a great restaurant as they are able to stand out by including the salad bar in casual dining. As most restaurants do Ruby Tuesday is no different when it comes to making the menu editable. I love to try different foods when I go out with my family and it tends to be harder when all menu items look good. Like most restaurants Ruby Tuesday has pictures on the menu and they also have signature daily dishes. Implementing daily food items makes the restaurant meet fine dining expectations to be in the market of competition with restaurants like Arizona’s. Arizona’s is a very high end restaurant that have chefs that decide on daily menu items. With Ruby Tuesday picking up this as an option it is giving fine dining restaurants some competition because they have lower prices. The salad bar offered by Ruby Tuesday is an amazing experience as most restaurants serve salad with meals but you are...

...BLACK TUESDAY IN THE BAHAMAS(APRIL 27, 1965) (Events inside and outside of The House of Assembly and aftermath of Black Tuesday are excerpts from "The Quiet Revolution" by Dame Dr. Doris Johnson.) Possibly the greatest event in the movement towards Bahamian Independence was Black Tuesday. This event culminated in 1967 but started with the 1962 General Elections. The 1962 General Elections was the first elections where all Bahamians including women, were allowed vote: universal adult suffrage. Surprisingly, the United Bahamian Party won the elections over the PLP. The UBP had 21 seats and the PLP had 8. Roland Symonette became the country's first Premier. Historians have hypothesized as to why the PLP lost the elections despite overwhelming support from the majority of Bahamians. Firstly, the PLP complained of UBP job threats. Workers complained that they were threaten with being fired if they voted for the PLP. Also, the UBP campaigned on the grounds that they had done a good job of improving the Bahamian economy; and that change now would frighten the American tourists and investors who were just now coming back from the 1958 General Strike. The UBP suggested that the PLP were not knowledgeable enough to run the country and if the PLP were to gain control of the government, the economy would be ruined. Additionally, the PLP complained that the UBP had arranged the constituency boundaries in such a way as to give themselves an unfair advantage. This "fixing" of the...

Ruby Tuesday

...Ruby Tuesday’s is a bar and grill style of a restaurant that was founded in 1972, by a 22 year old man named Sandy Beall, in Knoxville, TN (Our history). The concept of the first location that was opened in Knoxville had a strategy to be known as a comfortable and casual environment where guests could get quality food that tastes good (Our History). Over the past years different marketing strategies have come and gone for the business. Some strategies have worked in means of increasing sales and others didn’t work at all. In order to maximize profit and continue to bring in more revenue to the business a company has to know its place in the market. Conducting an analysis that involves the company knowing its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats will assist a company with important information that is needed to boost sales and gain a better presence in the market. Target Market Before conducting a SWOT Analysis, Ruby Tuesday would have to identify their Target Market. This is critical mainly because without this being known, they wouldn’t know what types of people are their current customers and they won’t know how to promote their business to bring in future customers. When it comes to their menu Ruby Tuesday has always tried to promote healthy recipes which means that their target market seems to aim for individuals 35 and up. Their current menu has a couple of dishes on there now that have the caption by them “Taste of the Islands”, which could be...

Tuesday with Morrie

...Tuesday with Morrie Leisure is finding free time to do ones own personally activity that brings happiness to oneself through the activity. Free time, attitude and activity is what defines leisure, in the movie Tuesday with Morrie, leisure is the defining cause of happiness for the main character, Mitch. In today’s society, we are so busy with our daily lives that we forget to have some time to ourselves. And it clearly depicts that in the movie, with Mitch’s busy lifestyle of being a reporter, he loses focus with everything else. Family, love, and life are the main focus of leisure of Morrie and he tries instilling it on Mitch, which he slowly learns as his life fades away. From this movie I learned that leisure is not just finding free time for oneself, but it is a life away from work. Compensation, needs that are satisfied that cannot be satisfied at work, is what the main character needed and wanted. I learned that leisure time from work is crucial to maintain a healthy relationship with co-workers, family members, loved ones, etc. That time away from work can mean the difference in marriage and divorce. An example from the movie would be when Mitch took Morrie’s advice and took off work and spend more leisure time with Janine and eventually proposing to her. It shows that leisure time provides a clear mind to think about future goals and lifestyles. The one big fact about leisure that I learned and that the movie showed is that leisure goes from physical to more......

American Psycho: Tuesday - Analysis by Frederik Jægergaard

...TUESDAY, a chapter from the novel “American Psycho” (1991) by Bret Easton Ellis. Lack of remorse and guilt, shallow affect, glibness/superficial charm and impulsivity are common characteristics found in the behaviour of a psychopath. Patrick Bateman, the main character of this novel, has similar behaviour. Even after spontaneously and brutally killing an innocent homeless man, he still finds his evening anticlimactic and boring, and regrets not attending dinner with some colleagues at the Salvadorian bistro. In this chapter of the novel “American Psycho”(1991) by Bret Easton Ellis, Patrick Bateman, a successful and wealthy businessman, brutally murders an innocent homeless man. Bateman approaches the bum as a kind and caring person, willing to lend him a few dollars for food and shelter. “”You want some money?” I ask gently. “Some food””? (p. 135 l. 3.). At first Bateman reaches for a ten dollar bill, but reconsiders and finds a five dollar bill instead. But before handing the homeless man the money, Bateman begins to interrogate him. The questions escalate from questions of genuine curiosity such as: “is this (a five dollar bill) what you need?”(p. 135 l. 6) into rude questions:” If you’re so hungry, why don’t you get a job?” — “I lost my job” — “Why? .. Were you drinking? Is that why you lost it? Insider trading? Just joking. No, really. Were you drinking on the job?”. (p. 135 ll. 13-19). The homeless man keeps telling Bateman that he is hungry and cold, but instead...

Black on Black Racism

...Black on Black racism : The Dominican republic ethnic cleansing What is the difference between an Haitian and a Dominican? People usually respond to race-related discussion in various emotional ways that range from deep culpability and embarrassment to extreme pride and hatred toward another group. Recently several stories reported in national or international news seem to add more focus to the ongoing debate about racial discrimination between black and white. But my concern is how to deal with racial discrimination when it comes from people of the same race. Currently in the Dominican Republic there is a flagrant case of human right violation regarding to Haitian immigrants and Dominican of Haitian decent. Being dark skinned in the Dominican Republic is a flaw associated with all that is negative. The discomfort related with these facts may lead to this fundamental question is racism only a matter of skin color difference or bias that take root in political and social fragmentation of a population? Haiti and Dominican Republic not only share the same island but they also have common roots. The apparent differentiation between Haitians and Dominicans can be established on difference of their colonial heritage. Prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492, the whole island, was inhabited by the Tainos.  After the Spaniards settled, enslaved and decimated the indigenous population, in 1503, they started to import black labor force from Africa. In 1697...

Analysis of "Tuesday" (Fight Club)

...In chapter 6, the narrator, whom we don’t know the name of, shows up to a meeting with a swollen face and a black eye. Because of his appearance it’s his boss who’ll do the presentation. While he does that, the narrator tells us about fight club and its eight rules. The first and second rule is that you don’t talk about fight club. The following rules are that when someone says stop, or goes limp, the fight is over, two men per fight, one fight at a time and no shoes or shirts are allowed during fights. The fights go on as long as they have to, and if it’s your first night at fight club, you have to fight. Fight club used to be just Tyler and himself, pounding each other, but it grows and is now held every Saturday. The story takes place at an office at the narrator’s work. It’s not directly written that it takes place there, but the reader can assume so by the fact that the narrator and his boss are doing a presentation for their client Microsoft. The narrator describes the location of fight club as well, which is set in the basement of a bar, after the bar closes on Saturday night. The basement is portrayed as dark with a single lamp. The lamp is placed in the middle of the room where the fights take place. That contributes towards creating an atmosphere where it’s the fight that’s in focus. The narrator of the story is also the protagonist. He lives two lives, “Who I am in fight club is not someone my boss knows” ; one as a recall campaign...
