Guadalupe Gutierrez Professor Huld Anthropology 102 The Nacirema I have never heard of the Nacirema until now. Learning about them was both interesting and appalling. What I learned about them is that they really care about their appearance or obsessed about their appearance.

Scialabba v. Cuellar de Osorio (2014) challenged the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1998 and the Child Status Protection Act, which allowed the automatic conversion provision of visa petition dates in cases that qualified. Cuellar de Osorio, a United States permanent resident, had petitioned for her son to receive a visa as a permanent resident of the U.S. in 1998. The date in which a petition is filed, the date is known as the “priority date” which serves as a ‘ticket’ in our immigration visa process. However, the Cuellar de Osorio’s visa petition did not appear in front of the ‘visa line’ until 2005; at which point, Cuellar de Osorio’s son had already turned 21 making him ineligible for the visa which was categorically filed as a derivative
The first source titled Posada Printmaker To The Mexican People displays Jose Guadalupe Posada’s art work and explains his methods and reasoning behind the art. His Calaveras that appear in newspapers and other advertisements often held political undertones and were produced for the general masses of people to enjoy. Posada’s Calaveras serve as an inspiration for the comic like characters in Bernardo Fernando’s graphic novel, 1874. For this reason, Gamboa’s book can be used to compare and contrast previous comic and graphic artwork done in Mexico to the recent work done by Fernández. 2nd
Lemony Snicket once stated, “Assumptions are dangerous things to make, and like all dangerous things to make -- bombs, for instance, or strawberry shortcake -- if you make even the tiniest mistake you can find yourself in terrible trouble.” In the story, The Soul of Caliban, Leon 's wife was always making assumptions about Caliban, leading Leon to judge Caliban and then regretting listening to his wife 's assumption. I think this quote proves that once you assume things, bad things can lead to happen. Throughout Emma - Lindsay Squier’s story, “The Soul of Caliban,” it 's clear that assumptions lead to judgments which then leads to regret. One example to not judge someone unless you know the whole story is in the beginning of the book when a man was judging Caliban by his looks.

THE TABERNACLE The Israelites stayed at Mt. Sinai for more than a year. During this time, they were occupied chiefly in learning the many details of the law which they were to follow. One of the most important developments that took place was the building of the Tabernacle, the chief purpose of which was to represent God as dwelling in the midst of his people, and it is a type and shadow of Jesus Christ, who was to come.
Benito Cereno; The Unexpected Abolitionist Published in Putnam’s Magazine, 1855, Benito Cereno seemed merely a retelling of the chilling events that occurred aboard the ship Tyral, dealing with the slave rebellion and outside interference of the Perseverance. At the pivotal time Melville’s story was being published, tensions were heightened with respect to increasingly diverting opinions on slavery, just before the start of the civil war. Critic J. G. Alleline understands this exceptionally well, arguing that Benito Cereno was not simply a quest narrative about the happenings of a slave-ship rebellion, but rather an intricate narration by Melville of which he describes as the “the legacie of the immorality of slavery is a distinctly American inability to determine what truly matters”, when considering the
Interior of a temple As you enter into a temple each room is more sacred than the one before it. Ordinary ancient Egyptians may have been allowed to enter the courtyard on special festival days, but could go no further into the temple. A row of columns surrounds the courtyard. The columns in the next room have pating to look like plants. The ones in the center where the light shines, are open as though they are blooming in the sun.
