I visited MoMA.org where Tarsila do Amaral’s Inventing Modern Art in Brazil was on display. Tarsila was born in Capivari, São Paulo, Brazil in 1886, and was the second of five children. Her father, José Estanislau do Amaral, was a wealthy plantation owner. During this period wealthy young ladies were not normally educated; however, Tarsila was encouraged by her family to educate herself. In 1900, when the family moved to Barcelona, Tarsila was enrolled in school where she impressed faculty by replicating images from the school’s collection.

At this point the directors of the professional team said ”This Boy will be the greatest soccer player in the world.” Pelé was born on October 23,1940 in Tres Corações in the Brazilian City of Bauru,Minas Gerais.

His family could not even afford a pair of shoes for him to play in. Pelé was discovered at age 11 and four years he started playing on a
When Lil’ Ze’ came of age he was the most well respected hood in Rio. He and Benny had respect and power but lacked money, therefore they decided to take over the drug industry. Under Lil’ Ze’ the favelas underwent a short period of exceptional violence where Lil’ Ze’ eliminated anyone who opposed him, and enjoyed the violence. After that, the favelas were peaceful because Lil’ Ze’ instituted a no raping, killing or robbing policy. The police overlooked the drug trade so long as Lil’ Ze’ gave them money to do
Brazil has passionate fans that believe in the national makeup of their players and their inherent abilities. Nadel, a historian, summarizes “in this narrative the mixed-race heritage of the country represented Brazil’s strength in soccer and beyond” (Nadel 80).

Right continues to say how ways were in the old days. Right is saying that youth
When we compare all these three movies, Bullet in the Head has more concern about social problems because it indicates Vietnam War and its consequences. For example, it criticizes militarism because in the movie soldiers (especially non-Americans or Vietnamese) kill people without any reason and violate them. The most crucial scene about the corruption in the system is robbery scene because when two friends burgled the jeweler, military forces came and gather gold from jewelry. Then, kill the owner and moved on. Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption.
With the help of a local doctor and lord, the three round up a crew and a ship to sail to the hidden treasure on the map. Little did they know, the crew they hired had their own plans to steal the map and thus the treasure. Throughout the novel, Stevenson argues that, “greed can destroy any relationship, no matter how strong,” through his use of language and tone, as well as cultural, historical, and social lenses.

When Jim, the Doctor Livesey, and the squire examine the map, the squire automatically edmands that they go searching for it before anyone else finds the map, and refuses to tell anyone, saying, “‘Livesey,’ said the squire, ‘you will give up this wretched practice at once.

They seized the armory and seven people were killed while a dozen others were wounded. His intention was to arm slaves with weapons from the arsenal, but no slaves came to his calling and the raid was put to rest by Colonel Robert E. Lee and his marines. These acts of treason are what made John Brown a important figure back then. He tried a different approach to having slaves freed but in the end it back fired and cost him and some of his kids their lives. Some people say he was a hero because he stood up to the south bulling of slaves but others say he was a terrorist because he killed innocent people based on their
