Different Types of Folk Dances
Itik-Itik
The best description of the Itik-Itik is that the steps mimic the way a duck walks, as well as the way it splashes water on its back to attract a mate. According to popular tradition, the dance was created by a lady named Kanang who choreographed the steps while dancing at a baptismal party. The other guests copied her movements, and everyone liked the dance so much that it has been passed along ever since.
Tinikling
The Tinikling is considered by many to be the Philippines' national dance. The dance's movements imitate the movement of the tikling bird as it walks around through tall grass and between tree branches. People perform the dance using bamboo poles. The dance is composed of three basic steps which include singles, doubles and hops. It looks similar to playing jump rope, except that the dancers perform the steps around and between the bamboo poles, and the dance becomes faster until someone makes a mistake and the next set of dancers takes a turn.
Sayaw sa Bangko
The Sayaw sa Bangko is performed on top of a narrow bench. Dancers need good balance as they go through a series of movements that include some impressive acrobatics. This dance traces its roots back to the areas of Pangapisan, Lingayen and Pangasinan.
Binasuan
The Binasuan is an entertaining dance that is usually performed at festive social occasions like weddings and birthdays. Dancers carefully balance three half-filled glasses of rice wine on their heads and hands as they gracefully spin and roll on the ground. The dance originated in Bayambang in the Pangasinan province, and though it's usually performed alone, it can also become a competition between several dancers. Pandanggo sa Ilaw
The Pandanggo sa Ilaw is similar to a Spanish Fandango, but the Pandanggo is performed while balancing three oil lamps - one on the head, and one in each hand.

Comparing The Sirens In Homer's Odyssey And Siren Song

...The portaryal of the Sirens and their luring but destructive song is compared in both Homer's Odyessey and Margaret Atwood's poem Siren Song as being inevitable and trecharous to the Odysseus sailors. The leader of the Odysseus recounts about thier encounter with the Sirens and with an ominous tone addreses his crew to heed of the cataclysmic dangers the Sirens are forcasted to perform. The Siren in the poem narrarates her tragedy of causing such pernicious accidents and through her point of view manipulates the reader to belive Sirens have no desire to hurt those who cross their path. In the Odyssey, the leader of the Odysseus applies his point of view on the Sirens by expressing how the song causes his,"...heart inside..." to throb...

How Business Runs

...I was home alone, and I was bored because all of my friends were busy and I couldn't think of a single fun activity to do. It was a boring day, But there are so many fun things to experience on a boring day, so I decided to convert this bad day into a day of fun. I went for a walk with my nephew in New York city.

Succubus: A Narrative Fiction

...The forest was dark, filled with noises of the unknown creatures of the supernatural. I found herself waking up to sound of the succubus irresistable call. The hybrid egg was gone, and hope was slowly dwindling for their convent. “ Well, well look who it is, witches Bonnie and Anna.” she hissed peering out of the shadows. I couldn’t move, the succubus had us both trapped in her trance. Her eye held the power that was keeping us down. She was wearing a revealing tight black dress that came up to her mid thigh. Her eyes were the color of silk, white with a tint of purple. “ We don’t have the egg anymore, so why are you here?” Anna shouted desperately trying to move free from the trance. The succubus made a loud vile sound which made Anna and I fell to our knees. Clenching my...

Globalization

...projects put the accent more particularly on the need to create new sources of financing for the economy, since one of the coiranon characteristics observed in the 1960s and 1970s in the majority of northern European countries was a very marked drop in the rate of investment." Well organized trade union efforts are being made to exert political pressure for projects in this region but, little real tangible action has been taken yet. In France and Germany public authorities have been the main source of initiative. In the face of reservations by both business and unions, the French government has acted to tiry to improve the climate of industrial relations. The 1967 ordincince established a compulsory system for employee sharing in benefits of industrial expansion and a 1980 act encouraged distribution of 3% of capital to employees. The 1970 German act has been broadened over time with the intent expressed by public authorities to promote accumulation of capital. In the Anglo-Saxon countries where government action is limited to establishing a legal framework some tax incentives for worker participation are provided, but adoption of schemes by companies is slow. By contrast, obligatory systems like the 1967 French ordinance may achieve quick changes. In these circumstance, participation becomes a right enforceable by law. In a number of the northern European proposals "participation breaks all links between the individual employee and his employers." For example, under a Dutch scheme...

Greek Essay

...Christopher Williams Professor Justin Ryals History Repeats My idea of Greek concepts was the configuration, understanding, and deduction of human virtues. It’s practically blatant with the continuous rise of philosophers. I chose the concepts; Arete, Sophia, Eros, Eudaimonia, and Eunomia. I chose these concepts because they are all concepts that show that people were not only trying to be good people, but the best people they could be. They put these concepts into the form of gods and gate keepers of heaven so people would strive to do right. The continuous literature and artwork put into these concepts is something you no longer see, and that is something I see wrong in the world today. The world today seems to be a very selfish and arrogant place. And I believe the return of these concepts would make life better for all. My first concept arête is seen in many different areas, such as; Achilles in the Illiad because he is the best warrior that man could be. Or, Penelope in the odyssey because she is the best wife that woman could be. The Parthenon is a prime example that Arete isn’t just held to people but also well strongly constructed building, a strong animal, or beautiful pottery. Arete means virtue or excellence of any kind. It meant living up to ones full potential. In Plato’s “Allegory Of The Cave”, the perfect form of something was its arête, what everything, and everyone is trying to get to. As Plato says,” arête is something you are always trying to achieve...

...Shakespeare’s Sonnets: Form: 14 lines, each with ten stressed and unstressed syllables known as iambic pentameter (rhythm of the heartbeat) Genre: Lyric poetry – Lyric poetry presents the deep feelings and emotions of the poet as opposed to poetry that tells a story or presents a witty observation. Rhyme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GG Rhymes may be ear-rhymes or eye-rhymes: an ear-rhyme is one that rhymes in sound, e.g. “increase” and “decrease”; an eye-rhyme is one that rhymes by sight, e.g. “compare” and “are”. Structure: This rhyme sequence sets the usual structure of the sonnet as three quatrains (sets of four lines) concluding with 1 couplet (a pair of lines). It is usual for there to be a pause for thought in the sonnet’s message at the end of each quatrain, especially the 2nd, in order to add tension, with the sonnet resolving to its objective in the final couplet, just as a song normally resolves to its root chord at its close. To convey the sense of resolution and completeness at the end of the sonnet there are often key-words, or tie-words, present in the closing couplet that are also present in the earlier quatrains. This structuring provides a framework on which to build the words, phrases, themes, rhymes, syncopation, punctuation and rhythm of the sonnet making it, at its best, a self-contained work of art. Having established this structure though, the author can then go on to breach the framework to add tension and meaning: a quatrain will not necessarily comprise...

Ambani Story

...NTRODUCTION: AN INVITATION TO BOMBAY The envelope was hand-delivered to our house in Golf Links, Tan enclave in New Delhi whose name captured the clubbable lifestyle of its leisured and propertied Indian residents, soon after we had arrived in the middle of a north Indian winter to begin a long assignment. It contained a large card, with a picture embossed in red and gold of the elephant-headed deity Ganesh, improbably carried on the back of a much smaller mouse. Dhirubhai and Kokilaben Ambani invited us to the wedding of their son Anil to Tina Munim in Bombay. In January 1991, just prior to the explosion in car ownership that in later winters kept the midday warmth trapped in a throat-tearing haze overnight, it was bitterly cold most of the time in Delhi. Our furniture had still not arrived-a day of negotiations about the duty payable lay ahead at the Delhi customs office where the container was broken open and inspected-and we camped on office chairs and fold-up beds, wrapped in blankets. The Indian story was also in a state of suspension, waiting for something to happen. The Gulf War, which we watched at a big hotel on this new thing called satellite television, was under- cutting many of the assumptions on which the Congress Party’s family dynasty, the Nehrus and Gandhis, had built up the Indian state.
