Vincent Lingiari, Leader and Elder of Gurindji people head stockman ay Wave Hill cattle Station. Lingiari was described as a quietly spoken, dignified, non-violet, but very strong willed and determined man. He could not read or write, but he was a natural leader (Guile. 2010. P.8). He felt the injustice of the Europeans taking traditional Gurindiji land and was determined to get it back. Lingiari was fearless in standing up to cattle station bosses and was very clever at gaining support for his land rights. (Albert. T. 2009. p.16) “We want that Vesty mob to go away from here. To go away from here and never come back. Go where they came from. This been Gurindiji country. All this is Gurindji country” (Vincent Lingiari 1966).
At Wave Hill cattle station, managed by the Vesty Pastoral company, many of the workers were Indigenous Australians who had been treated unfairly for years and their living and working conditions were appalling. The Company made huge profits by paying indigenous workers flour and beef instead of money (Guile. 2010. P.8). Indigenous families at Wave Hill liven in iron huts with dirt floors and no lights, running water or toilets. There were no schools or health clinics (Thompson. L. 1990 p.103) Billy Bunter Jampijinpa was 16 at the time of the walk out. About living conditions at Wave hill cattle station he said “ We were treated just like dogs…we lived in time humpies [shelters] you had to crawl in and out on your knees… The Vestey’s mob were hard men. They didn’t care about blackfellas.” (Sydney Morning Herald, 19 August 2006). In 1966 Vincent Lingiari requested the Wave hill cattle station manager Tom Fisher to pay indigenous stockmen the equivalent as the other workers. Fisher Refused (Guile. 2010.…...

Vincent Van Gogh - Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear

...Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear by Vincent van Gogh 1889 Oil on Canvas a. Describe the subject matter of each of these two paintings [10] The subject matter of both paintings is self portrait, in which case would be Affandi and van Gogh respectively. In Affandi’s Self Portrait, the subject matter depicted is like the title aptly puts, himself, albeit in a more unconventional and abstracted manner. This is as opposed to the more realistic manner in which van Gogh has depicted himself in Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear. In Self Portrait, Affandi has characterised himself as a semi-abstracted figure against a plain background, with the highly detailed face in stark contrast with his torso, which as suggested by its dark green contour only (without any colouring within), appears to only be vaguely apparent. Affandi also seems to be placing extreme focus on the human emotions or mood, presumably meant to be conveyed by the extremely detailed expression on the face that he has painted. In fact,everything is lumped together (in fact, most of the colours used) on the face in his painting. Upon closer examination, one would find that Affandi’s face as depicted in this work is actually more of a mass of red rather than anything else, and lined with blobs of different colours (namely yellow and green) presumably to represent the hair. Details on the face are not clearly made out, rather only a faint outline of the eyebrows, eyes and nose is apparent. This is as opposed to Self...

Saint Vincent de Paul

...Saint Vincent de Paul Society Brief History About 200 years ago, Frédéric Ozanam, a young French nobleman who lives in Paris, had the vision to build an organization that focus on helping people in need in a one-on-one daily basis. He named the organization as St. Vincent de Paul Society. Members of the Society were proud to call themselves as "Vincentians", in tribute to St. Vincent de Paul. Vincentians have the desire to help and serve the poor and in needs. They provide food, transportation and shelter, visit shut-ins, purchase personal care items, clothing and furniture, and assist in many other ways to help establish a better community. Later on, another St. Vincent de Paul Society was founded in San Francisco in 1860. The purpose of the Society is to help and support the neediest members of the community to become as independent as possible. The Society helps over 1,000 people in San Francisco every day, who are suffering from poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, and domestic violence. Social Justice Like the moment it was founded, the vision of St. Vincent de Paul Society hasn’t change at all, “to embrace the world in a network of charity.” The Society has set two goals to accomplish its vision: “to do a great deal of spiritual good to its members through the exercise of charity, and to do a little spiritual and temporal good to a few poor families in the name of Jesus Christ.” The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is composed of women and men who...

The Night Cafe by Vincent Van Gogh

...- The Night Cafe I visited www.artgallery.yale.edu and came across Vincent Van Gogh’s The Night Café (1988). I followed the instructions on “How to begin the Critical Analysis Essay (Extra Credit)”. As I was clicking through the collection at a “fairly good pace,” I stumbled on The Night Café. Its image stayed in my head for whatever reason. I finished looking at the collection and went right back to it. The painting must have struck a chord in my head, but getting into why that chord was struck would require another type of assignment. The Night Café is oil on canvas, from the art movement known as impressionism. The Night Café uses a display of optical and psychological color though harsh, textured swirls of impasto, which is the think buildup of paint on the surface of the canvas. One of his most interesting paintings (I think) is this one. The place he hung out at night drinking. The work depicts the interior of the Café de la Gare, an all night tavern owned by Joseph-Michel Ginoux and his wife Marie. It was located at 41 Rue Du Temple, 4th St. Paris, France. It is known that Van Gogh visited disreputable drinking establishments. The bare setting of the Café de la Gare served as inspiration to Van Gogh. The asymmetrical composition serves the purpose of communicating a feeling of unbalance. The psychological elements of this painting gave it unity: The disproportioned elements in the composition, the odd placement of objects, and the odd point of...

...Mei Yin Sister Helekunihi HIST 202-01 Final Paper Aug. 30, 2010 Feelings Waltz on the Canvas Vincent Van Gogh and His Impact on Art World “ ... Starry starry night, Flaming flowers that brightly blaze     Swirling clouds in violet haze     Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue     Colors changing hue     Morning fields of amber grain     Weathered faces lined in pain     Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand…” In the song “Vincent”, Mclean reveals one after another beautiful painting of Van Gogh through the singer’s gorgeous words. At the same time he expresses his understanding and respect to the gifted artist Vincent Van Gogh. Even though Van Gogh was suffered by hunger and cold, misunderstanding and distorting, he had always immersed in creating art with passion. His inspiration of art creating was never surrendered to the fate. Speaking was never Van Gogh’s strength. He preferred to communicate with others through his art works. Van Gogh said, “…art wells up from a deeper source out of our soul.” The art world should be grateful for Van Gogh’s special way of communication. Otherwise there will never be Post-impressionism. Vincent Van Gogh lived long time ago, and yet his work is still varying many perspectives of people’s life. The legacy of Vincent Van Gogh led the flourish of the Post-impressionism and Expressionism, impacted many artists’ art style in nowadays, and changed the way mankind views the beauty of the world and society.

Ethnographic Investigation - Saint Vincent de Pauls

...Villanova College | Ethnographic Investigation | 12 study of religion | Michael Barton 2012 | Table of Contents Introduction 2 Interview questions and response 3 Interview report 6 Conclusion 7 Introduction The fair and proper administration of laws conforming to the natural law that all persons, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, possessions, race, religion, etc., are to be treated equally and without prejudice (businessdictionary). The Catholic faith has heavily involved itself in the issue of modern day poverty for the best part of the last century as well as the new we currently reside in. In order to improve this issue the church and state must understand the issue and work together in order to decrease the issue of poverty in Australia. The State and the church both involve themselves heavily in this issue, but aid is still needed from both sides to improve their possible responses. Saint Vincent De Pauls is one of the largest charities fighting against the struggle of poverty in Australia. Interviewed to discuss Saint Vincent De Pauls involvement was Robert Leach. Interview questions and response Robert Leach 1. What is your understanding of poverty? Poverty is usually understood as financial deprivation – a severe lack of money or purchasing power. However, this definition of poverty can and should be expanded to include the lack of amenities, living on the margins of society, lack of security, lack of services...

How Vincent Van Gogh Got His Inspiration

...How Vincent Van Gogh got his inspiration “As a suffering creature, I cannot do without something greater than I—something that is my life—the power to create” (Vincent Van Gogh). Vincent Van Gogh was a smart and fast learner in his day. With his education and his will power he wanted to paint the world in his own color. Although his family was not supportive of him, he made friends along the way who helped him become who he is today. Vincent Van Gogh was inspired through education, styles of painting, and from people and places. Besides his peculiar behavior, Van Gogh was a brilliant painter. To Vincent Van Gogh education was the key component to becoming a successful painter. Vincent Van Gogh was born, lived, and worked in northern Brabant which is located in London (Thomson). As he got older, Van Gogh began to self-teach by using English literature, French works, and journals. While studying, he worked as an art dealer and an English teacher. During his teaching days, Van Gogh wanted to become a writer, so in order for his dream to come true, he studied the writings of Charles Dickens, George Eliot, and Zola (Thomson). With all of that knowledge that he acquired through the years, Van Gogh felt that he was ready to write his novel. As time went on, Van Gogh became frustrated with starting a story so he gave up writing. While sitting in a chair in his house, he began to remember the lovely paintings that he used to see when he was an art dealer. Van Gogh wanted to...

Vincent Van Gogh

...Vincent Van Gogh Vincent Van Gogh is a world-renowned artist famous for paintings such as Sunflowers, many of his self portraits, and Starry Night; the painting that will be discussed later. Van Gogh was diagnosed with several mental and physical disorders. The disorders he suffered from include; manic depression, epilepsy, and bipolar disorder. Through these disorders and problems Van Gogh produced some of the most amazing and popular works of art seen through out the world today. Could Van Gogh’s illnesses be the cause for the certain styles and colors he used in his paintings? Or was it his time period that influenced his style of paintings? Vincent Van Gogh’s illnesses, failures, and the post-impressionist era greatly influenced his style and methods of painting. It is proven time and time again that Vincent van Gogh’s many diagnosed illnesses have greatly influenced his paintings. Van Gogh suffered from many diagnosed diseases and problems such as Lead poisoning, Epilepsy, and Manic Depression. These diseases could have greatly altered the way he painted, the colors he used, and the theme of his paintings. He also may have suffered other diseases or mental issues that were never discovered by doctors or by his family. We will never completely know what exactly went on in the mind of Vincent Van Gogh. “Lead poisoning occurs when lead builds up in the body, often over a period of months or years. Even small amounts of lead can cause serious health problems. At very...

...Vincent Van Gogh 1853 – 1890 "And my aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then, at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and tender regret, and thinking, 'Oh, the pictures I might have made!'" Vincent van Gogh Letter 338 19 November 1883 Early Years – Vincent Van Gogh makes one of the most tragic lives in the history of painting, which began on March 30, 1853 at Groot-Zundert, in Dutch Brabant, near the Belgian frontier. Vincent’s father, Theodorus, was a pastor and the son of a pastor. His mother, Anna Cornelia Carbentus, was the daughter of a Court bookbinder at The Hague. Their married life was happy and uneventful. Anna and Theodorus had a first child, Vincent-Wilhelm, only to die at the age of six weeks. A year to the very day after, the Anna bore a second son, Vincent Van Gogh. Anna then delivered five more children, Theo, Vincent’s favorite brother, his supporter and guide, Cornelius, Anna, Elisabeth-Huberta and Willemien. Vincent lived in his native village till he was twelve years old. He was very quiet, liable to sudden bursts of impatience or high spirits, which alternated with long periods of depression. Secretive, he did not mix with other children. Vincent was not antisocial; he shared in the family life and showed great affection for his home circle. His childhood was outwardly dull and he was a lonely boy, but stubborn and determined. His time was spent...

John Vincent Antanasoff

...JVA BIOGRAPHY John Vincent Atanasoff (JVA) was born on 4 October 1903 a few miles west of Hamilton, New York. His father was a Bulgarian immigrant named Ivan Atanasov. Ivan’s name was changed to John Atanasoff by immigration officials at Ellis Island, when he arrived with an uncle in 1889. JVA’s mother was Iva Lucena Purdy, an English teacher from upstate New York. She and John married in 1900, following John’s graduation from Colgate College with a degree in philosophy. He got a job as an industrial engineer in New Jersey and they started their family. John took electrical engineering correspondence courses at night and on weekends to further his education. After JVA’s birth in 1903, his father moved the family to Florida, accepting an electrical engineering position in a newly established town called Brewster, now an empty ghost town, but back then, the home of the phosphate mines of chemical conglomerate American Cyanamid. In Brewster, JVA completed grade school at a two room schoolhouse, and later attended middle and high school at an accelerated pace, graduating with his high school diploma at age 15. Throughout his developmental years, JVA exhibited the characteristics of an inventive personality, and was encouraged by his mother and father to exercise his wide interests in subjects ranging from crochet and British Literature to electrical circuits and the workings of farm machinery. He developed a fascination with calculating devices when his father gave...

His father Theodorus Van Gosh was a minister and his mother, Anna Cornelia Carbentus was none other than an artist herself. The couple was determined to have a child named Vincent Van Gogh as Van Gogh was born exactly one year after the still birth of his brother whom his parents also named Vincent. They seemed to have very few issues in this area though as they went on to have six children total. Van Gogh is known to have struggles within himself but I imagine from the very beginning that it would be hard to see your name and exact birthday (one year older) on a tombstone. Maybe this could have a factor or play some sort of role in the emotional pains experienced by him. At the age of 15 Van Gogh was forced to quit school and begin working due to his family's finances and struggles. He started working for his uncle Cornelis at his art dealership/gallery called Goupil & Cie which is a firm of art dealers is the Hague. Although Vincent Van Gogh dropped out of school he still managed to become fluent in French...

Vincent Van Gogh

...Vincent Van Gogh Vincent Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853 and died July 29, 1890 he was the son of Theodorus Van Gogh, a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, and Anna Cornelia Carbentus. Vincent was given the name of his grandfather, and of his stillborn brother. He was a major Post-Impressionist Dutch painter, an artist whose work greatly influenced 20th-century art. His output included portraits, landscapes and still lives of cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers. Van Gogh drew as a child but did not paint until his late twenties; he completed many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life. In just over a decade he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolor: drawings, sketches and prints. But Van Gogh had a very humble and unexpected start at the age 13 he was a very serious, silent, and thoughtful child. He attended the Zundert village school from 1860 from 1861, he was then sent to Jan Provily's boarding school at Zevenbergen about 20 miles from his family. On 15 September 1866, he went to the new middle school, Willem II College in Tilburg, where Constantijn C. Huysmans, a successful artist from Paris, taught Van Gogh to draw at the school and advocated a systematic approach to the subject. Vincent's interest in art soon began and he started to draw and continued making drawings throughout the years leading to his decision to become an artist. Though well done and expressive, his early...

The keyboard scan can be implemented by either an external clock or external capacitor. These encoders also have on-chip pull-up devices which permit switches with up to 50 kΩ on resistance to be used. No diodes in the switch array are needed to eliminate ghost switches. The internal debounce circuit needs only a single external capacitor and can be defeated by omitting the capacitor. A Data Available output goes to a high level when a valid keyboard entry has been made. The Data Available output returns to a low level when the entered key is released, even if another key is depressed. The Data Available will return high to indicate acceptance of the new key after a normal debounce period; this two-key roll-over is provided between any two switches. s 50 kΩ maximum switch on resistance s On or off chip clock s On-chip row pull-up devices s 2 key roll-over s Keybounce elimination with single capacitor s Last key register at outputs s 3-STATE output LPTTL compatible s Wide supply range: 3V to 15V s Low power consumption An internal register remembers the last key pressed even after the key is released.
