The dress would do very nicely in the breeze, so it would be great to wear as evening wear on a trip to island countries where there is a consistent breeze.
The dress is revealing yet there is coverage, most specifically in the area of the torso. There is a faux slit in the chest to give the appearance or the illusion or even the slightest hint of cleavage. This chose in design is a sign of class. There is certainly enough skin exposed by the pattern of the dress, particularly in the legs and in that the dress is sleeveless, revealing parts of the shoulders and the entire arms. The slit in the chest is sexy, but there remains some elegance and self-respect. The design states that women wearing this dress are happy to reveal parts of their body, but that it is unnecessary for women who wear this….

Cross-Cultural interaction between Eurasia and Africa in the 1000-1500 period
Cross-cultural trade between Eurasia and Africa during the 1000-1500 time period is owed to a series of factors such as several countries adopting more liberal attitudes toward other communities and developing an interest in the profits coming along with getting actively involved in trading. The Silk Road is often considered a principal element when regarding this subject, as it made it possible for numerous individuals from around the world to join in a society trading numerous concepts ranging from silk itself to spices and even to cultural values. Products, religions, and foreign languages all ended up being shared between individuals travelling this route.

hile many have the tendency to focus on this Middle Ages in particular when considering this topic, one should concentrate on the process' background in order to gain a more complex understanding as to why it was so….

Global silk trade

The presence and evolution of silk within the past and modern day societies are intriguing in both national and global contexts (McKay, 2009). Silk is part of the world's history, traditions and society. It is a sign of royalty and prestige and it has been used for symbolism purposes, aside from its traditional purposes (eddy).

Silk represented an important trade commodity ever since it was discovered, and ever since the West discovered the East. Silk was one of the most popular and desired commodities in the West and they were generally exported from Japan and China.

Similar to any other commodity, the trade of silk was sensitive to numerous forces outside the actual product. For instance, the world wars disrupted the trade of….

Oil and Silk Road
PAGES 2 WORDS 718

Oil and the Silk oad
The global supply of oil is depleting at unprecedented levels despite the efforts of many developed nations to deal effectively with the problem. National dependencies on oil have created ripple effects in the global economy that are manifested primarily by restructured world oil markets and the political aspirations of producer and consumer nations with regard to oil exploration, refinement, transportation, and pricing ("Annual Energy eview," 2012).

Just as the historic Silk oads were the hubs of economic exchange across Eurasia, so too is oil in the Central Asian oil pipelines is core to economic trade (Waugh, 2009). For centuries, silk was a major currency that fueled long-distance trade (Waugh, 2009). Today, oil has eclipsed silk in long-distance international trade (Waugh, 2009). From 400 BC to 1600 CE, the goods traded on the Silk oads could not be had through any other methods than trade with the diaspora….

Mallard locks herself in her room and looks to nature for consolation, a situation that seems to dissolve the tension that she was subjected to, and Mrs. Sommers goes on a shopping and fun spree that ends up in the movie theatre. Finally at the end of the three stories there seems to be a successfully resolved situation for the tension that was, Calixta seems at peace with the family and she even does not quarrel the husband as was the norm (and the husband expected it), Mrs. Mallard though dies, she dies a happy woman of 'the joy that kills' and Mrs. Sommers seems satisfied with her day out where she had maximum fun and bought all she wanted (Jennifer Heeden, 2011).

...these designers placed great significance on clothing inherited from the past, including Japanese farmers' clothes designed through necessity and adapted dyed textile and quilting from ancient Japan, which Japanese would not consider fashionable. These designers presented them to the fashion world, gave the opportunity for 'the neglected' to make their existence known, and transformed them into 'fashion'."(Kawamura, 2004, 125)
Kawakubo, Miyake and Yamamoto are considered as the designers who made these first steps towards a new fashion more concrete: "hile Kenzo is considered a pioneer among all Japanese designers, Kawakubo, Miyake and Yamamoto are the ones who created a new style characterized by monochromatic, asymmetrical and baggy looks."(Kawamura, 2004, 125) the asymmetrical and baggy look of their designs is clearly influenced by the loose form of the kimono. Sometimes, in Miyake's creations for example, the dresses are completely shapeless and have random holes that offer a certain freedom when wearing them:….

Silk and tassel look similar but the two structures are functionally different. The NP interviewer uses them synonymously without correction by the farmer.
However, the farmer is correct in emphasizing the importance of the silk and tassel, the stigma and the male inflorescence, in the reproduction of the corn. Moreover, the farmer stresses the relationship between wind and corn fertilization. Pollen grains are "borne in anthers, each of which contains a large number of pollen grains" that emerge only during certain morning hours (Thomison). The farmer in the NP segment fails to mention the crucial timing involved in corn pollination.

Corn ovules are potential kernels, which are the fruits of the corn. The seeds of the corn are its pollen: which is created in the anthers and which travel along the male inflorescence to fertilize the stigmas. Stigmas are essentially pollen receptors. In many plants, the stigma is part of a….

Ultimately Judith Shakespeare, (like Hedda Gabler) according to Virginia oolf, would have very likely taken her own life (1382). Although life today is still far from perfect for many women in many areas of the world, and while some women (in various poorer parts of Africa, Latin America, and Asia, for example) face many of the same attitudes and obstacles Judith Shakespeare would have faced, women in the United States, Europe, and many other areas today are infinitely freer than Virginia oolf's Judith Shakespeare would have been to pursue artistic (or other careers); support themselves while doing so; and to avoid unwanted pregnancies and childbirths.
Henrik Ibsen, Kate Chopin, and Virginia oolf, all writing in either the late 19th or early 20th centuries, all depict, within the works I have discussed, various strictures and limitations on the lives and aspirations of women during those times. For today's women, there are….

(1) UNEQUAL TREATIES

The growing demand for Chinese tea, silk and ceramics by ritish had created severe trade imbalance for ritain. The ritish were also losing their silver reserves in exchange for Chinese goods. In late 1930's government of Great ritain found "opium" as a solution for resolving trade imbalance. Opium, which is more addictive than tea, was being supplied to China by ritish merchants. As demand for opium increased in China, ritain's imports increased and in this way silver bullion was flowing out of the China into ritain.

However Chinese government (Qing government) took serious steps to stop the trade of opium. Lin Zexu, which was appointed as an Imperial Commissioner for the Destruction of Opium, started an anti-opium campaign. During the campaign, opium stores were destroyed and opium dealers were arrested. This act….

Sociology of Youth
The Structural Arrangements

The class view using the Social-Psychological perspective precipitates a point-of-view in the context of society as the dictator to the actor, the environment perpetuating the role that young individuals play in contemporary society. The social interaction is engaged through the environmental variables that lead to the psychological parameters to which the youth operate within. This approach is ostensibly akin to Ethnomethodology that views humans as a rule ridden species predicated on acting within a given societal or moral framework.

The identity formation of bonded child laborers in India is an example of youth that have no control over their environment and to where their environment or social paradigm shapes their individual thought process. These youth become a function of their environment. Essentially, a product of their environment that is based on exploitation and abuse of the children of the society. The structural arrangements for these youth are….

Instead, they will spend less on dish detergent and diapers at Wal-Mart, to compensate in their household budget. Perhaps watching Martha Stewart convinced the consumer of the value of such unique additions to the home. They may also buy Martha's towels in loyalty to her image of fine living at K-Mart. Now, even K-Mart proudly boasts Martha's up-scale products, as it too trades up in with the aim to dominate a wider and more affluent market segment.
The title of the book refers to the fact that middle-class households are spending differently and target themselves as part of a wider array of market segments when creating a budget. Households cut back on some purchases to trade up, or to buy more status-conscious goods in other market sectors. Thus, traditional market segmentation of a uniformly 'middle class' consumer uninterested in high-quality goods no longer holds / Consumers can be persuaded that….
