But what if life in third world countries weren’t just melancholy music and sad eyes. What if these people have ways of finding joy despite the challenges of poverty. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie warned during her TED talk: “the danger of a single story.” Even though some people in third world countries are living in extreme poverty, they don’t all live a life of constant depre...   [tags: Third World, First World, Second World, Poverty]

Is Islam a Single Universal Tradition

- In this article, the historian Francis Robinson argues that Islam is a single universal tradition based on the fact that borrowed practice elements from Hinduism are needed to be considered fallacies in the religion. Those syncretic elements were combined from Hinduism by various Indian communities. The argument is if Islam is a one unified religion or rather is it a religion that embraced other religion practices from different communities.

The Opportunities and Limitations in Using a Single Camera

- The Opportunities and Limitations in Using a Single Camera In the early days of film making the director would not have the choice of using the multi-camera setups and editing suites that we have today. He or she would have just one camera to shoot all the shots needed and then when it came to the editing process, all the shots would need to be selected, the different frames sliced apart, and spliced back together in the desired order. As you can imagine this was a time consuming process, and although this appeared to be a big limitation on some television genre's at the time such as sit-com and live broadcasts, it allowed the film industry to flourish....   [tags: Drama Acting Movies Film Essays]

Single Black Women

- Black women are amazing, smart, loving, independent and strong, yet, many of us are single. We as black women have stereotypes surrounding us more than any race I believe. Many of those stereotypes seem to play into the issue as to why we are single. There are so many astounding black women that single in America and my question is why that is so. I feel as though it is because there are fewer educated black men in America, we are notorious for our bad attitudes, and sometimes we can get too involved into our work to be held back by a black guy who would not help us, but with help from sources like Steve Harvey we can combat this issue and maybe one day get rid of this statistic....   [tags: stereotypes, college graduates]
