These theme is described from this quote, “Instead of going to peoples’ living rooms, we’re taking it to them.
Due to the constant contact between various people of the nation, there is some kind adaptation of one kind of culture from other. The impact of such contribution of culture is known as the culture legacies. Each national history and culture unfolds in its own particular way. Sometimes it could be the explanation for people’s previously inexplicable behaviors. In Chapter six of Outliers, Gladwell claims that cultural legacies “play such a role in directing attitudes and behaviors that we cannot make sense of our world without them”(175).
In the article “What to Bring” by Naisha Jackson the immigrants chose significant items with them as they immigrated to the us. One conclusion I can draw is the items they bring are either things that remind them of back home or that is really important to them.

The ambitions of the journeys relate to their culture, because their goal will ultimately depend on what their cultural customs and beliefs are, what their religion as well as society deems acceptable.
In our multicultural society, many Canadians discover that perhaps their identity as citizens has become to search forever for an identity. The search for the Canadian Identity has progressed for as long as Canada had existed. In the article “An Unknown Country” by Roy MacGregor, the idea of Canada being this “perfect” country is revealed as nothing more than a mere dream, counteracted by the reality that in many circumstances Canada came close to losing itself forever. “An Unknown Country” by Roy MacGregor suggests that whilst Canada is a nation proud of its successes, we still keep the blemishes and scars resulting from our history, implying that our Canadian identity is rather ambiguous.

Once upon a time success was principally determined by a person 's academic and professional qualifications, however in today 's highly connected world, the region a person chooses to live and work in also has a momentous impacts on his success.
