However, just because they did not need slaves does not mean that they were not pro-slavery. Just about everyone in the typical Yeoman farmer family had a job or chores they were required to do to help out on the land and they often dreaded it. For example, men had to tend to the plantations while women tended the house. Children even had to help gather and collect items and food necessary to keep the family going. Yeoman farmers were also craftsman skilled in carpentry and blacksmithing therefore they were able to produce some income.
Several factors prompted this decline such as: several economic problems, the rise of other trade routes, the European hunger for expansion, and weakness in the Ottoman government Furthermore, the Ottoman Empire was both politically and militarily strong, yet, it was too traditional and could not keep up with worldwide changes and modernity through time. Europe and the West were rapidly moving forward innovatively while the Ottomans stayed in their place for too long. All these problems led to the empire being less centralized in Europe. Simply, the Great Powers of Europe took advantage of this situation and allied to completely end the rule of Ottomans. To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point.
Lower or middle class people often had their own family members making clothes for them because they could not afford to have a tailor. Most clothes made by lower to middle class people were only made of “one or two pieces of cloth” (Source 2. 4) in order to conserve cloth for other clothing. As time when on tailoring changed from making fancy designs to making clothes that fit the body well and looked good. The objective of nice clothes was now to make the body look better, not disguise it.
Social class heavily dictated what a man could wear because even the most wealthy males could only wear certain materials and clothing items due to their social standing. On the other hand, men of royalty could wear whatever item of clothing they wished, but they were only seen in the most complex, grand garments. Kings often wore “Deep collars of ermine covering the upper arm and sometimes cut out with a scalloped edge were worn by both kings and queens” (Brooke 99). Ermine was a rare material that only royalty could afford and wear, so it was a distinctive material among upper classes. Men of royalty also often wore long cloaks lined with other expensive materials as well as embroidered gloves, jewels, and intricate pins.
To begin with, the majority of Iranian families could not afford to replace both the veil and the chador with the European sense of style. It is also fair to say that Reza Shah’s method of modernization overlooked centuries of Iranian culture when it came to wearing the veil, and the meaning it had to conservative Iranians. Furthermore, it would have made more sense if the Shah took a more gradual path to modernizing Iran. In other words, Reza Shah should have granted women the privilege of deciding the clothing they wore, instead of trying to completely erase the veils existence. This would have probably resulted in the low class women sticking with their cultural attire, while the wealthier women seek beauty from European clothing.
Supporting the economic system isn't just based on farming and trading. Jobs, and money also tie into supporting the economic system. For example, many rich people made businesses making clothes and tools in factories. But since most people
They preferred floral patterns and stripes. • The lower class wore light, dingy shades because they could not afford dyes that would give a pure color. • The middle class wore dark and black colors as a symbol of wealth. • Fashion for men was more elaborate than women. • Middle class were morally conservative and wanted to dress like royalty.
What we earn does not fully provide for all our needs; the tuition fee of my brother and other household utilities are some of the things we still need to secure. This often leads us to incur debts from money-lending institutions and from our relatives. Looking from these aspects, the possibility for us to rise from our meager condition is still far; unless miracles happen along the way. However, it appears to me that what we experience is not unique, because most families belonging to the middle and lower classes, whose main source of income comes from public utility vehicles (PUV), share almost the same sentiments. The concept of C. Wright Mills’s “Sociological Imagination” maybe helpful to understand in a wider perspective our experiences and how these circumstances persist in the Philippine society.
Student’s Name Professor’s Name Course Name Date How did the Italian Renaissance ideas spread northward and how were they transformed in France or England? Introduction Between the 14th and 16th century, Italy went through what they termed as Renaissance which was characterized by several changes in the country. As described in Italy, Renaissance means rebirth or rebuilding of a given societal role. The transition of the country came from the medieval to the early European period where different normal operations of the society were greatly altered. Before the rebirth process began, the Italians had the desire to rebuild some of their greatest being thus the creation of the Renaissance process.
(Kremer) The distinctions between male and female dress began to reflect larger cultural shifts in the eighteenth century. Fashion was redefined as feminine and light-hearted, furthermore representing women as unsuitable for education or citizenship and lacking reason by nature. Solely men were considered gifted with rational thought which entitled them to be politically empowered. They expressed this in their clothing, replacing the heeled shoes with the promising three-piece suits, carefully avoiding standing out too much from each other. Expressed in literature: [Find Alexander Pope’s satirical men’s club rules.
The most prominent difference between France and New France 's politics was that New France 's administration was put into office based on merit and influence meanwhile French officials would buy their way into administrative positions . Both ways were easily corruptible but New France 's administrative policies appeared to give a slightly better chance for those of the middle class to get in to politics. The inevitable corruption through this system in New France did happen and led to many people using their position to further their wealth at the expense of the colony as seen by Francois Bigot who together with twenty two other officials carved their way to millionaires through corrupt politics . One of the most ground breaking differences from France was the fact that women were allowed to hold land and even trade assets in New France . In some cases women were even given a percentage of her husband 's assets when he died even if he had sons .
The regions of the Middle East and China experienced many shortcomings and lost much in the areas of stability, security, and influence. The culture and society of Asia was moreover sewn together by the Mongols’ conquest and with this new empire and the nations which were under its reign were subject its many failing and critical flaws (Abu-Lughod 207). While much infamy and fear surrounded this vast Asian empire, its rule for time it had existed provided stability and set up routes towards other regions of the world, enabling the flow of international commerce. The lasting societal effects of the Mongol empire however, meant as the reign of the Mongol empire waned and dwindled, Asia in its entirety had become isolated and cut off from the much needed commerce and capital it needed to remain as capable competitor in international markets. The society of China suffered especially, having relied on the Mongol empire’s stability as its position as practically a protectorate, this massive nation’s position, influence, and wealth plummeted (Abu-Lughod 211).
Especially in the growing cities of the Northeast, economic growth was accompanied by a significant wondering of the gap between wealthy merchants and industrialists, on the one hand, and impoverished factory workers, unskilled dock workers, and seamstresses laboring at home, on the other. (189)." Before the market revolution in transportation, farming, and goods, families used to work for themselves at their farms, and exchange goods among their neighbor; all without the need for money. Nevertheless, the market revolution changed that, it contributed toward the production of goods that was now being manufactured increasing outside the home. And at the moment, they started exchanging money for goods, providing for the growth of the economy.
From hiring many men, each dedicated to producing a single, identical piece over and over for a specific item, finished goods were completed faster and the prices went down. Parts for machines became interchangeable, leaving repairs and replacements easy and less expensive since they no longer had to be utterly replaced, or the pieces custom-made. Efficient looms, plows, and other devices were also created, often using the newest models of machines in Britain as their base for inventing. These inventions were often used in the south to increase efficiency and crop wield, such as the cotton gin and better plows that took half the work. Strangely enough, this heightened efficiency in cotton harvesting resulted in more slaves.
Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of.
