The Richness of Olive Oil

- The Richness of Olive Oil When I think of olive oil, a picture suitable for a postcard comes to mind: rows of olive groves, pasta figgoli, Pavarotti singing, and Grandma Garone rubbing olive oil on the heads of my father, Vincenzo, and his brother, Francisco. Their hair would take on the Italian look: dark and sheen, slicked back, reminiscent of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Grandpa Garone owned acres of olive groves in a small village outside of Naples in Southern Italy. Each day, his workers collected the olives and made batches of fresh olive oil....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]

Close but not Deep: The Use of Richness in Love’s Literary Ethics and the Descriptive Turn

- Heather Love starts her essay, “That there is perhaps no term that carries more value in the humanities than ‘rich’. In literary studies, especially, richness is an undisputed - if largely uninterrogated good…” (371). She uses the word rich and richness multiple times since it is connected with interpreting and deep reading, but the critic loses richness, when he practices surface reading. Love asserts at the beginning of her essay, “richness signifies qualities associated with the complexity polyvalence of texts and with the warmth and depth of experience” (371)....   [tags: traditional hermeneutics, ]

The Overlooked Richness of the Recitatives of Bach's Cantata 78

- The Overlooked Richness of the Recitatives of Bach's Cantata 78 In "Expressivity in the Accompanied Recitatives of Bach's Cantatas," George J. Buelow writes that although many of the distinguishing properties of Bach's music have been studied over the years, few scholars have examined Bach's recitatives or have given them proper credit. He notes that these recitatives generally either are ignored by musical scholarship or are briefly discussed with "general errors" or "confusion." 1 For example, he cites Jack Westrup as stating that Bach's recitatives are "basically an adaptation of the idioms of Italian opera" (19), and he mentions others who term them "improvisatory" or unrelated to the...   [tags: Bach George Buelow Music Essays]

The Richness of Old Age: a New Critical Reading of "to Autumn"

- "Where are the songs of Spring. Ay, where are they. Think not of them, thou hast thy music too." So often, people look back upon their youth and wish that they still had it before them. Our natural tendency is to fear old age, to see it as the precursor to death, rather than a time of life, desirable in its own right. However, in John Keats' poem, To Autumn, he urges us not to take this view, but to see old age as a beautiful and enviable state of life, rather than something to be feared. First of all, it must be established that Keats is even speaking about old age....   [tags: Poetry]

The effect of anthropogenic ecological stressors

- Biodiversity is the variation among organisms and ecological systems at every environmental level. However, the simplest way to study these organisms is to observe the richness of the species. Species richness involves observing the number of species found within a certain patch (Ricklefs 2008). The dispersal of the species involves organisms entering and exiting patches to inhabit another patch. Dispersal may affect the distribution of the organism or the overall fitness of the population thus harming the species richness or possible increasing the richness (Ricklefs 2008)....   [tags: Environmental Issues]

How Urbanisation Significantly Influences Bird Communities in Significant Ways

- ... Specifically, differences were seen between the abundance of native and exotic species. It shows that the two species in question respond differently to the changing landscapes; exotic species outnumber native birds with increasing urbanisation.

This in turn, gives advantage to the more resilient bird species, which are mainly non native (Whitney and Adams 1980)....   [tags: native Australian birds]
