This article touches base on one of numerous ongoing issues in California right now, drought. The author travels to a few of the various counties that are feeling this drought the greatest. Meanwhile, he also interviews a few farmers on the issues, to get their opinion on the drought. “Generally, farms established before 1914 get their water allotment before farms with lower-priority rights.” (Richtel, page 6). Due to this unwritten law made before the drought, Parvinder Hundal, a farmer that started his business in 1986 is feeling just how devastating this drought really is.
After the Civil Rights movement, many historians took different perspectives on history. Up until the 1960’s historians considered the west vacant and unoccupied. Many cultures and peoples had lived in the West before Americans pushed westward. This new generation of historians noticed that in each of the following theories of Andrew Jackson, previous historians could not give an accurate interpretation of Jackson because they neglected to consider the West as occupied. This shift in ideology forced a reexamination of Andrew Jackson.
Sadly, when Poma sent off his big book of information, his culture had been deemed illiterate in the minds of academia and his stories were lost. Pratt claims, that if the receivers had observed the reading and pursued to learn from it, they would have stored a better understanding of what life was like for the Andean subjects. Nevertheless, this text didn’t fit within the existing understanding of Andean culture and what was almost lost for it. As a replacement, another text, written by a Spanish, Andean citizen living in Spain colored the perspective in a Spanish positive light and was assumed to be the right perspective. Written in standard Spanish without illustration The Royal Commentaries of the Incas by Garcilaso de la Vega, was and up to Pratts speech considered to be the precise narrative for understating the Incan culture.
Throughout history cultures have clashed many times. Whether it be because of land, industrialization, or race people have always found reasons to disagree with one another. John Smith’s writing “The General History of Virginia” shows a dominant culture coming in contact with a less developed culture, dehumanizing them and uplifted John Smith in order to take control of the people. Smith, an influential member of society and founder of Jamestown, wrote his text in 1624, seventeen years after the events had occurred. He is also known to have embellished his story to make himself appear more substantial.
Later on in the film, the Roberts ' moved away to try and start somewhere new. However, they quickly realized that it would be too difficult to start anew in a place where they know no one and don 't really know what to do. After a short time of trying to make things work, they moved back to New Orleans. This behavior was likely partially dictated by a sense of home and belonging. They decided they would rather go back to their devastated home and rebuild a life there rather than try to go somewhere new.
A result of this is that they fall into a liminal identity where they become to feel lost and some feel unwanted. This is what sets them apart. It reminds them that they are not a full citizen regardless of how much they blend in and feel as if they are. Their status of “illegality” overshadows all the other privileges and becomes their “master status.” With illegality being their status, it is more difficult for them to continue their education beyond high school, and if they managed to attend college, barriers still remain. They will still struggle to attain a high paying career, and a mortgage for a house.
Those important incidents, which had influences in the society, from 1960s to 1970s are roughly separated into two parts, the Vietnam War and political instability. The first, the United States has already intervened in the Vietnam War in the 1960s, and then United States Armed Forces still continued to fight in the early 1970s. They were finally defeated at the Fall of Saigon in 1975, because of domestic public opinion against the Vietnam War. In those days, the United States society certainly changed from the 1950s, when Travis was born and raised in. The latter, Travis was influenced by political instability, which were in the United States society in the 1960s and 1970s.
Things Fall Apart was written by Achebe in the years before the collapse of colonialism. Many people wanted the Europeans gone so things can go back to normal again. The effects of colonialism, though, were “not something from which you could recover, really” (Achebe Interview). This quote says that the policies and the influence the Europeans had placed on the Ibo have gone so deep that a revolt is not what is needed to save because nothing will. The Ibo would have to keep moving forward and adapt.
As a culturally distinct people the Machiguengas are diminishing. For the Machiguengas, exposure to modernization and globalization has not been favourable.

The destruction of their culture and practices, leads to the loss of the cultural identity of the Machiguengas.
As mentioned by the researchers in this study, the lack of resources - time, facilitates, and staff might be another reason contributed to the declined usage of creative activities in the occupational therapy treatment (Müllersdorf, p. 373). The short hospital stays and limited health insurance coverage might be another reason that pushes occupational therapy practitioners "towards...rapid solutions" and restricted them from incorporating creative activities to the treatment plan (Müllersdorf, p.
During times of war, trust and survival cease to coexist. Throughout A Long Way Gone authored by Ishmael Beah, trust is frequently undermined by survival. In order to secure safety, placing trust within others no longer remains an option; however, once safety is guaranteed, the idea of trust no longer exists. In order to secure safety, placing trust within others no longer remains an option. During times where the safety of an individual, family, or community becomes uncertain,
