Captivity stories have become a popular genre throughout the American culture. The idea has gained popularity because America’s history with captivity has left unforgettable memories for all Americans. Stories like A Narrative of the Captivity of Mary Rowlandson and The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano have become very popular because of this. Although there are many differences between these stories, they both are similar in one way or another. In all captivity stories, a main element is reading about how the captors treated those they kidnapped.
The two museums that I chose to visit were the LA Plaza de Arte y Cultura and The America Tropical: Interpretative Center. Los Angeles is one of the most popular cities in California with plenty of museums and places to visit. There is so much history to learn about that I had not realized before. I try to avoid the area due to high traffic, but the area was nice and there were so many friendly people. I am not originally from Los Angeles; I grew up in the Inland Empire, but Los Angeles always fascinated me.
Human beings are great travelers, traders and colonizers. The mythical tales of nearly all cultures tell tales of the trials and tribulations of travel and exploration, such as those of “Ulysses” in Homer’s “Odyssey”. Surely, one of the tribulations of ranging outward from your house is sooner or later you will encounter people who do not speak your language, nor you theirs. Some parts of the world, we may not have to travel farther than the next door to find languages disconnect and other part we may have to cross the ocean. This situation is so common in human history and society, several solutions for bridging this communication gap have arisen, sociolinguistics being one.
A pertinent and undoubtedly true statement which is more relevant in modern times as opposed to other pieces of documentary from the early stages of cinema. When stepping back and properly analysing this quote of Renovs, one can see that due to the surfacing of numerous biography features over the past decade, movie makers are now trying to emulate the realness of non fiction through means that has often been more suitable to fiction itself in the past. And in many cases, to confirm his statement, these have often been well received amongst the public at large, erring that of The Big Short (2015), Joy (2015), Spotlight (2015), The Danish Girl (2015), Straight Outta Compton (2015), Trumbo (2015) and Steve Jobs (2015) to name but a few. All movies that have been released in the past year and all well received and Oscar nominated. For the most part true stories,
Throughout history the Native America have faced many obstacles, the genocide from the settlers and the U.S government who suppress their freedom with wars and unfair treatment. I found that it is very impressed how they could manage to keep all these collections at the museum to show the world that they were once a rich and powerful civilization just like other civilization around the world and all these things are represent a culture that once was long but it is important to discover what have been missing and cherish the remaining of a

The Arabian Nights or Alf Layla Wa Layla is considered as the first fictional reference to Islam and Islamic world. Between 1704 and 1717, the French statesman Antoine Galland translated the Arabian Nights from Arabic into French, in twelve volumes. Later, translations –from Galland’s and not Arabic- into other European languages appeared.

(MATAR).The Nights emerged in two versions: the Syrian and the Egyptian, which is called Bulaq.
In fact, the new words created in this book have had a lasting event in the book world and many other authors now use the same words in their writing as this vocabulary has now become so widely used. Themes This book has many themes including that of greed and responsibility. Greed can be seen in both Bilbo and the Dwarven King and responsibility is a large burden that they all hold. This theme is very well implemented and although, they do sometimes seem forceful in its implementation. Though this is forgivable as this is a very old novel and nearly everything during that time period was very morale heaviest.
‘The book thief had struck for the first time, it is the beginning of an illustrious career’. Liesel’s book stealing in my mind does not qualify as criminality. But the failure/inability to apologize for stealing items, this is the greatest crime. Markus Zusak attends to show us the humanity in everyone, he does this by elaborating on words and sentences creating the theme criminality. Markus successfully uncovers the theme criminality creating a profound effect on the reader while also linking to modern day society.

His evidence was that a Spanish treasure fleet carrying an estimated £12,000,000 crashed there.2 Word of pirates getting rich from Spanish treasure quickly spread, and soon many pirates were coming to the Atlantic Ocean in order to attain riches; another “gold rush” ensued. New Providence served as a port for the pirates and allowed for pirates to trade their treasure. Port Royal was also greatly affected; and soon piracy started to move northward.2 The problem of piracy was widespread, and amnesty was offered to pirates in an effort to reduce it. However, it was very unsuccessful, as Bialuschewski explained through the use of a primary source; pirates were “not willing to give up their plunder for an ordinary life under dismal and impoverished conditions.”2 The British government then started a bloody war against pirates, with Edward Teach being one of the many casualties. Bialuschewski stated that the decline of piracy was ultimately decided in this war, as pirates no longer had access to a safe base, and their way of life was becoming riskier.
With those words you get a story which has good reason to be deemed a "classic". This story set in a dystopian future will hit close to home as it is read and the protagonist Guy Montag can be surprisingly similar to yourself. Maybe it was the heroic quest which drew so many to its pages or the sense of empowerment and rebellion it leaves you with, but no matter the reason you turn the thin fragile pages, you cannot help but read in amazement as Guy Montag goes through a transformation of a lifetime. A transformation of both body and soul which not only changes Mr. Montag forever leaving
Not only do the papyri contain name with combinations of Semitic and Greek syntax, but they also identify Jews who bear wholly Greek or Egyptian names. For example, a fragment identifies a person as “Antigones the Jew” (CPJ No. 8), a Greek name important to Greek tradition through the Theban plays. Various other fragments make reference to Pasis the Jew (CPJ I No. 9), which the corpus editor notes is a very common Egyptian name (Tcherikover, 135).
