Our Cuban Revolution in plain english video is an informational video to help the viewer understand the timeline of event in the cuban revolution up to the cuban missile crisis. We were assigned the task of making a simple easy to understand and creative video on the Cuban Revolution, and I think the art style we chose helped the simplicity and undersandability of our video. My partner and I collaborated very well together and we helped balance our weaknesses and strengths. We even worked so well together, we managed to find time outside of school to work together to get the video finished. Enjoy the video!
European Tour Operators Association CEO pronounces: “It’s a bloodbath in the jungle”
My book was Flesh & Blood So Cheap written by Albert Marrin.
It covers the topic of mass immigration and its difficulties, worker mistreatment, and fire safety back in the 19 and 20th century.
The theme of this book is “The power of change lies in the hands of the people, when the people unite.”
This was supported by events such as The Uprising Of The Twenty Thousand which is heavily discussed in this novel. It is also made clear this is a recurring theme when poor immigrants used their voting power under a democratic republic to help support themselves and future generations.
I believe you should read this book because,
1. it gives a new perspective on factory workers who even today are often looked down upon in our modern society and are seen as people who do not work hard or are uneducated.
2. It also helps us think about they ways we as ordinary people can change the world around us for the better and should be doing more to see the changes we want from our society.
One thing I learned from this novel is the tragedy of how common child labor was in the past especially in rapidly developing countries.
this gave me a better understanding of the past and the hardships many people went through.
I believe living right next to the water as some did was not the best idea but again living far from the water was even worse. my reasons for as to why living close to water is better is that. first off it is much easier to farm and to water your crops. because with the irrigation systems that were created the plants were already watered. on the other hand if you were to live far away from a water source you would have to wait for rain and for extra any extra water you needed you would have to collect it with clay pots. another good thing about living close to the water is that it lead to the advancement in man kinds problem solving ability. for example they had to make and perfect a new math concept called “geometry”so they could control and be precise with their irrigation system. also they could control the flood and silt deposits from the river easily anyways with the irrigation flood routes. So this is why I believe they made the right decision living closer to the water.
