Exchange of Food on Thanks Giving

...Quan Anderson November 12, 2013 Why the Exchange of Food on Thanksgiving Day is the Corner Stone of the Holiday The first Thanksgiving Day as history records was truly a day of thanks for the weary Pilgrims. Had it not been for the humility of Squanto “a member of the Pawtuxet tribe”, (history) the first settlers would have surely perished. Squanto showed the Pilgrims weakened by illness and malnutrition how to cultivate corn, extract sap from maple trees, fish in the rivers and to avoid poisonous plants. Squanto also helped the Pilgrims develop a relationship with local Native American tribes such as the Wampanoag. This would last for over fifty years and is sadly one of the sole times of peace recorded between the first settlers and Native Americans. After the Pilgrims, first successful harvest Governor William Bradford organized a celebratory feast and invited all the colonies and their Native American allies which lasted for three days. The Native Americans showed up with five deer and Governor William sent some of his men out to gather fowling, and they also dined on the fruits of their harvest. This was known as Americas first Thanksgiving. So in my opinion Food is the corner stone of the holiday because it’s the way the Pilgrims came together with Native Americans to show thanks for all their help in surviving the harsh new land. For me it is the way my family and friends come together and celebrate everything that we have to be thankful for, although we......

Moutain Trip to Beach Trip

...people are looking for an escape period allowing yourself to detach from the craziness. Gave yourself time to recharge and rejuvenate from the everyday stress. My family is no different we are all looked forward to the spring break. We got two weeks this year instead of the normal one week. My family started to write down ideas on pieces of paper, then put them in a paper sack. Next, we all took a turn and pulled one out of the sack the trip ideas that were pulled trip to the Wallowa Mountains, trip to the Oregon coast, and then Yakima, Wa was pulled from the bag. Once I saw what my mum and my son pulled, my paper got tossed over my shoulder. The challenge now were to pick from the two options trip to the Wallowa Mountains or the trip to the Oregon coast. We ponder on what the Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains offered in actives, accommodations, and weather in late March. We were down to trip to the Wallowa Mountains and the Oregon coast. As we looked at these two, we noticed these were just a few of the more common spring break trips. These two place Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains are still far from being a like each other. Then my family was curious about other things such as accommodations and the weather in late March. The weather in Oregon can be unpredictable in late March at the Oregon coast also at the Wallowa Mountains. The weather can be sunny one moment to down pour rain. The Oregon coast often in late March can be foggy and stormy with high winds.......

Feild Trip

...really fascinated me on our field trip was that we got to witness history of Victoria and British Columbia. It was really fascinating that we got to see firsthand on what happened back in those times. I enjoyed looking over the island where the Chinese were held, you could feel the sensation through the air and it was very emotional. I also really enjoyed going on that tour inside the castle, it was really interesting on how the rooms were laid out and what people even wore. It was a great and eye opening experience. I think for me that changed my entire outlook on the trip was about the story of Reena Virk, and how racism and bullying go a long way. Another turning point was the grave stones of the Chinese workers and how finally they got a chance to be remembered. That was also really eye opening because everyone should be remembered and not just by the color of their skin. Overall this field trip was extremely long but worth the wait. Professor Green did an amazing job on all the explanations he gave and the great detail. Without him, I don’t think the trip would have been as good. The only thing I didn’t like about the field trip was there was no mixture of cohorts, and I thought that was one of the main things this field trip intended to do, was to make everyone a closer family. It was disappointing but it was a great experience. In conclusion, I want to thank everyone who participated and all those that made it happen. Also a big thank you to Dr. Motherwell for letting......

This report is made for Mr. Indrajith Aponsu who is our Microeconomics lecturer. In this report I and my group members have gone in death of the process that we learnt at the tea factory. The process that we learnt briefly and the main points, we have discussed it in detail during this report. Furthermore, we enjoyed the entire trip and I think we are really fortunate to learn about tea. To learn a subject like this is a once in a life time opportunity. This opportunity will not work to all the people. We drink tea in large scales, but we don’t realize how this is processed and graded for consumers. Though we don’t get a chance to taste the highest grade in Sri Lanka it is good that we saw how the tea is processed in a factory which is situated in the south. As we all know the highest grade is exported to all the European countries and other countries all around the world. Finally we take this opportunity to thank our instructor for taking us on this trip and also for joining with us to go on the trip. History of Sri Lankan Tea The Sri Lankan tea history goes back to 1824 where British brought the very first tea plant from China. This tea plant was planted in the Royal......

Gift Giving

...Gift Giving The human service field is a field of helping. When people are helping people, it is natural and in some cultural cases, required to offer gifts of appreciation. There are many fine lines that divide the boundaries of gift giving within the helping industry. The value of the gift must be considered, the policies of the agency that a helper is employed by as well as the expectations that could potentially be attached to that gift. Some agencies have policies that avoid this dilemma all together and state absolutely no gifts will be given or received from clients. Other agencies will state that in order to avoid any insults or culture disrespect, a helper is allowed to receive a gift and ensure the client that the agency thanks them and the gift will be shared with the staff. Gifts from clients can have many or no strings attached. Some gifts come genuinely from the heart and are simply a cultural way of thanking someone for their help. Other clients however could have an ulterior motive behind the gift and consider the acceptance of the gift from the helper an indication that their relationship just took a step in a different direction. Whether or not a helper has permission to accept a gift, they must have the knowledge and capability to identify the boundaries of each client and the gift. In the revised version of the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics, it states in section A.10.f. “Counselors understand the challenges of accepting gifts from......

Giving Thanks and Praise

...hanking God is beyond words its more of showing yourself approve to him by doing and saying what the word says. I am sure to thank Him all the time. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you).The reason I give Him thanks is because “His love endures”( Psalm 136;3 3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever).”His mercy is ever lasting” (Psalm 100:5 5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations).When I am giving thanks I focus on my blessing rather my wants. As I finish thanking Him I began to praise him although both praise and thanking go hand and hand by praising God I am reminded of his power and presence. (Psalm 96:4 4 For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods). I also praise God by singing to him at varies times of the day it always stirs me up in the morning. There's plenty of ways of praising God songs,hymns,clapping hands even jumping for joy the list goes on. We will see manifestation of Gods blessings by praising him with all our heart,mind and soul.(Psalm 92:1-2 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:2 To shew forth thy loving kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,)...

Trip On car journey I would like to talk about today was my visit to Mount WUYI which is located in Fujian province. Last winter vacation, my family and I decided to go to Hainan. Unfortunately, we were informed that Hainan was hit from typhoon 2 days before our departure. As the city repaired damaged, there were still powerful following storms threatening this region. Out of a choice, we canceled our trip. However, it was not often the case that my family and I could get time together to have a holiday trip. In order to fully enjoy our vacation as we planned, we changed our destination to WUYI city. Due to the sudden change, we failed to buy train tickets and had to drive there on our own. It turned out that visiting places like Mount WUYI is perfect for self-driving. It was estimated as a 3-hour driving so we rented a SUV and switched drivers on the way. Each of us were responsible for a part of the highway, and whenever we saw something fascinating, we just pulled over the car to have a closer look at it. I guess those are the merits of renting a car and going on a trip with family. Mount WUYI, a very popular scenic area in China is famous for the natural conservation of numerous ancient plant species and wildlife. The popular activities there include hiking and drifting. The first day we rode a raft down the streams. The raft we took was tied by bamboo, and there were two men using long poles to steer the craft down the water. When drifting smoothly on the......

Thanks Giving Chapel

...A Dallas businessman Peter Steward was the first to visualize that in the heart of downtown Dallas there should be a place for people to worship and thanksgiving to our community, nation and the world. At the same time, a central gathering or a meditation space for office crowd to relax or to relieve the stress from work. The non-profit Thanks-Giving Foundation commissioned the postmodern architect Philip Johnson to design the Square and was finished in 1976. The Thanksgiving Square is designed in a triangle shape landscape that is surrounded by trees, grass and manmade waterfall. The site is in between the Pacific, Ervay, and Bryan Streets. The main entrance of the Square is on the Pacific Avenue. On the right hand side of the entrance there is a Wall of Praise with Rockwell Mosaic that illustrates “The Golden Rule.” After visit the Wall of Praise there is a Ring of Thanks that is made of aluminum and covered by gold allow the visitor to pass through and speak their thanks out loud they will hear the echo back. Behind the Ring there is a Thanks Bell Tower with three large bronze bells, and it rings every hour. After visiting the entrance, there is a long pathway leading to the Chapel. The pathway was designed in a slope below street level surrounded by aqueducts. About half way down the pathway on the right hand side there are stairs leading to the Wall of Presidents that made of concrete. The Wall is surrounded by trees and a waterfall wall. As people step into......

Thanks Giving Essay

...November 26. As a federal a popular holiday in the U.S., Thanksgiving is one of the major holidays of the year. The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated to give thanks to God for helping the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony survive their first brutal winter in New England. The first Thanksgiving feast lasted three days, providing enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans. The feast consisted of fish and shellfish, wild fowl, venison, berries and fruit, vegetables, harvest grains, and the Three Sisters: beans, dried Indian maize or corn, and squash. The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating "thanksgivings"—days of prayer thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought. Thanksgiving Day in the United States started as a way of giving thanks to food collected from a good harvest or problems that were fixed. It originated in 1621 and was a religious festival, but is now largely secular. It is now a holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. Many people trace the origins of the modern Thanksgiving Day to the harvest celebration that the Pilgrims held in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621. However, their first true thanksgiving was in 1623, when they gave thanks for rain that ended a drought. These early thanksgivings took the form of a special church service, rather than a feast, as is common now. In the second half of the 1600s, thanksgivings after the......
