During our tour at the Legion of Honor, we observed art starting from the early and High Renaissance. Next, we went to the Dutch Baroque period, British art, and ended at the impressionists. A most notable work of art from the tour was “The Annunciation” by Master of the Retable of the Reyes Católicos. This oil on wood panel painting was created in the late 1500s, during the High Renaissance period of the art historical cannon. It portrays the biblical event found in the Gospel of Luke in which the archangel Gabriel announces to Mary that she is pregnant with Jesus, the son of God.
For this cultural report, I will be talking about my experience when I visited a significant and historical architectural site. On July 21st, I visited the Castillo San Felipe del Morro, or “El Morro” in San Juan, Puerto Rico. El Morro is a fort built by the Spanish during the mid 1500s, and was used to defend Puerto Rico from outside forces. The fort was attacked by the English and Dutch in the 1590s, and suffered significant damage from the U.S. Navy during the Spanish-American war, where the lighthouse was destroyed but rebuilt again.
A 42-year-old Museum in Vietnam After North Vietnam archived victory and gained control of Southern Vietnam in 1975, the museum, called “The Gallery of American Crime - Wei”, was built and opened for public. The main purpose was to expose the war crimes from the US and French at that time and promote the heroic
These self-feelings make self-esteem important both experientially and motivationally. Self-esteem can change over time, but individuals tend to maintain a consistent view of their self-worth due to the need for psychological consistency and the need to resolve cognitive dissonance. The motivation to maintain and enhance a positive conception of one-self is a major dynamic of many contemporary self-theories (Gecas 1991). There are several processes that can be used to develop self-esteem: reflected appraisal, social comparisons, and self-attributions. Reflected appraisal is the most important process because of its emphasis within symbolic interaction theory.
Through examining the remnants of the dead in the Medici Chapel’s one could appreciate the importance of the individuals preserved in artifacts. From soldiers to saints, the Medici Chapel houses all kinds of memorial artifacts of the people that were important to the Medici family. The Medici Chapel was designed by Michelangelo in the year 1520 as commissioned by the Medici family.1 The Medici chapel crypts contain relics which are the valuable pieces that contain human parts, whether bones, skin or hair. These relics used as investments and to be sold in times of dire need because people believed that bones and remains of saints would scare away people who bore ill intentions.2 After seeing the relics, despite their astounding beauty and craftsmanship they give off an eerie aura which could have been the reason people believed in the conception of the remains driving other people away.
The Vietnamese names of cities, towns and streets were changed to French names. Significant business tended to be conducted in French, rather than local languages. If not for the climate and people, some parts of Hanoi and Saigon could have been mistaken for parts of Paris, rather than a Southeast Asian capital. However, I had an impression that exactly because of French presence in Vietnam, Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh city) obtained it’s unique eclectic style.
Self-esteem is how individual look and define oneself as a person, as a part of society, as a state of responsibility in which he/she carries. Saedinejat et al. (2012) defined self-esteem as one’s collection of thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences meaning that one’s evaluates themselves based on accumulation of what he/she think or see in him/herself, what he/she feels towards self, and the experience an individual gone through that mold one’s acceptance of self. Bailey (2003) stated that self-esteem is the summary judgment of everything a person can assess about himself or herself such as; (i) who one is (i.e. one's philosophy of life and character); (ii) what one does (i.e. one's tangible and/or intangible work products regarding people, nature, objects, or oneself); (iii) what one has (i.e. one's inherent, developed, or acquired qualities and quantities); (iv) the different levels in how one appears (i.e. one's physical body, personality, and reputation); and (v) to whom or what one is attached (e.g. God, a concept, a "special" person or group, money, possessions, or
The self concept is information and belief that we have of our personality traits, physical characteristics, abilities, values, goals, and roles as well as the knowledge that we exist as individuals. The self concept becomes more abstract and complex and is organized into a variety of different cognitive aspects know as self schemas. As adults, our sense of self has grown from when we were a child. In addition to possessing a wide variety of self-schemas we can analyze our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and we can see that other people may have different views than we do. We become aware of our own mortality and we make arrangements for our future and consider the potential outcomes of our actions.
Panama City, Panama is a country of the arts, from the formal monuments to the informal graffiti found on the walls of the street. While visiting the city, one will find a multitude of the different mediums of art. As we viewed the different art found in the city, the main work of art that came to mind was the Maesta painting by Duccio. On the second day we traveled to the Panama Viejo. The first site that we looked at was the ruins of the Convento de la Conception.
In Mcleod’s article, it said that people “‘think about, evaluate, or perceive’ themselves” (Mcleod 1). Mcleod talks, in the article, about how people thinking, evaluating, and perceiving about themselves is call self-concept. Whenever people think about themselves, most of the time, people are confused about whether or not they are pursuing right actions for their future, especially people with low self-esteem . Furthermore, people get more confused if their actions dramatically differ from others. However, again, people’s actions determine who they are, so even if their actions are dramatically different from others, it may be a path for that person’s success.
Austin Barrett Gosia Gabrys English 1110.02 27 Oct 2015 Analysis of Cathedral The narrator of Raymond Carver's short story Cathedral starts by saying, "This blind man, an old friend of my wife's, he was on his way to spend the night.

“An individual perception of self, of body image, of time, of space influences the way he or she responds to object and events in his/her life. As individuals grow and develop through the lifespan, experiences with changes in structure and function, of their bodies over time influence their perceptions of self” (King, 1981, p. 19). These concepts give us the basis for understanding how individuals are personal systems. Perception, is “A process of organizing, interpreting, and transforming information from sense data and memory” (King, 1981, p. 24).
For example, if someone emplaces the idea that one is overweight in one’s head, one is going to possibly take that into account when looking in the mirror. Self-concept is also said to contribute to how we may behave in the future by setting up goals that reflect our opinions of ourselves. In some instances, individuals may believe that they will be a successful doctor and, because of that self-concept, it becomes reality. This is known as self-fulfilling prophecies. Self-esteem is the worth of what one takes from one’s self-awareness and self-concept.
