Now the shelves and work surfaces had multiplied and there was a whiff of oil and Lava in the air.

Furthermore, the play also contains extracts of a “detective play” to solve a mystery; searching for clues and mysteries to answer throughout the play. It is also considered to be a “well made play” which has a tight plot, because the story is somewhat claustrophobic, because most of the play takes place in a dining room with a climax to the end....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Chinese Imagined Community

- The Chinese-Canadian experience during the 19th and 20th centuries provides a classic example of history’s role in the nation-making process, the creation of an “imagined community”(Stanley 477). The anti-Asian exclusion era (1880s to 1940s) in Canada played a pivotal role in the emergence of the “Chinese” identity. Benedict Anderson describes the ‘imagined community’ as a community that is built through emotional ties with one another. Anderson states that the community "is imagined because the members of even the smallest nation will never know most of their fellow-members, meet them, or even hear of them, yet in the minds of each lives the image of their communion,” (Anderson 1991)....   [tags: Chinese History ]

Smoking or Non?

- Smoking in restaurants and bars has recently become a thing of the past in Georgia. Most restaurants used to have smoking sections. These poorly partitioned areas allowed patrons and employees to enjoy the carefree life of eating and smoking simultaneously, without having to go outside for a smoke break. Fortunately, the Georgia Smokefree Air Act of 2005 made it illegal for smokers to light up inside restaurants where anyone under the age of eighteen may be present. Now, non-smokers can go into practically any eating place in the state and not have to worry about their food being seasoned with the cook’s cigarette ash....   [tags: Smokefree Air Act, Public Areas]
