There also was an increase in money spent on leisure activities, and there were new styles of music and dance within films and during everyday life. From 1920-1929 weekly movie attendance increased by over forty million people (Sagert xiv). The increase in movie attendance was directly correlated with the invention of sound for films. The transition to sound-on-film technology occurred mid-decade with the talkies developed in 1926-1927. Throughout most of the decade, silent films were the predominant product of the film industry.
By this time, this Californian destination had lured approximately one-quarter of the population of America to its' lush retreat (Schwarz). Disneyland was unbelievably crowded every day during the 70s, and Walt decided they had to expand into new similar ventures. The Walt Disney World Resort was the final brainchild of the Disney Brothers. It was originally planned and partially constructed before the death of Walt and opened near Orlando, Florida on October 1, 1971. During the 1980s, the Disney Company was continuously evolving.
Between World War I and the Great Depression, the 1920’s were unique and special years in American history. The best way to represent that time would be by historian Frederick Lewis Allen providing the historical account of America in the 20’s in Only Yesterday and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famed novel, The Great Gatsby. Both of them reflect America in the Twenties by showing lifestyles and behaviors of people who lived in that time. We can follow their beliefs, actions, and morality through the works. While Allen was seeking to capture a decade, F. Scott Fitzgerald did a good job by pointing to the main issues during that time.
The Teams began to build stadiums which helped the sports industry tremendously. “The 19th century had admired its sporting heroes, but the mass media extended their reach, transforming local idols into national celebrities. Many cities built huge football stadiums and baseball parks. The number of Americans attending sports games doubled during the decade.” The sports industry impacted the 1920’s and clearly helped bring in fans and income towards the industry. The sports industry then led the newspaper industry to increase in production as well.“Ruth’s exploits filled newspapers and airwaves but failed to exhaust the appetite of American consumers for sports heroes and heroines.” The increase in production in the sports industry sparked baseball player Babe Ruth’s career which was the biggest sports headline during the 1920’s for newspapers which helped that industry as well.
In my opinion the author did this because the battle wasn’t going anywhere interesting, unless he wanted to write about an entire battle siege which usually lasts hours or even days. He decided that he would instead speed it up by having them bring in the machine. Without the machine the battle would have lasted longer and would have been less
The article was written very well but I do find some faults with it. He did not provide statistics for all of the examples, maybe because they didn 't support his claim or it didn 't make him look completely right. It also seems that he did not explain the examples about 401(k) and ¨no fault¨ insurance well enough. He also reference all of the examples more than once, except those two. I feel that he should have left out those examples, because it just confuses the reader.
Artists at this time had little to no training or experience. Being an artist, wasn’t considered to be a relevant career. As the Puritan community changed and developed, it’s art did the same. Changes in portraiture reflected the evolution of Puritanism. Portraits became more elaborate and scandalous.
The art movement that I chose from the twentieth century, is surrealism. Surrealism started in 1924 and lasted till 1966. This art movement had a lot of influential artists as in Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo and so much more and related movements like cubism, expressionism, abstract art, etc. The movement Surrealism, began in art and literature, which started in Europe between the both World Wars. Surrealism started right after the Dada movement ended, although Surrealism wasn’t on negation but rather on positive expression.
I didn’t feel good about this. I started doubting my ability to complete this task. It wasn’t the idea of writing a reflective essay which daunted me, it was the idea of reflecting on my life. I didn’t want to over analyse the choices I have made, since that usually results in not so enjoyable thoughts. Through some Olympic-level google searching I continued my search for an idea, however I ended up using an idea which had occurred to me right before going to sleep.
You would never believe how many writing projects I have dropped just because I 've lost inspiration to finish/continue them. Prior to reading this chapter I never thought of writing as anything more than just a hobby. But if I want my writing to get serious or better it shouldn 't be a hobby. I should treat it as a
