Throughout the time period, China saw a huge shift in their economic means, while still keeping some values in situ. One of the most important changes was within the intellectual mindset that China held, fluidly moving from one ideology to the subsequent. At the beginning of the period, the Mongols began to break through the Great Wall under Genghis Khan, but the southern Song wasn't conquered until his grandson captured the capital. Under the Emperor Kublai Khan, China was unified, and its borders grew significantly. While the Mongols continued to remove the leading officials, many less powerful Confucian officials remained in place. It's seen that the Khan clearly respected Chinese customs and innovations, this holding cultural continuity. Another change within the economic world, is the fact that Kublai Khan and his successors put an excellent deal of effort into conquering more territory in Asia. They elevated the status of merchants, actions deeply hated by the Confucian bureaucrats. But, while trade flourished during the Tang and Song era, merchants had a way lower rank than scholars did, thus upholding the confucianism value of education.
By reading "Never just pictures" we were able to find some factors that cause eating disorders. According to the author, these factors are:
Valorization of super-thin bodies by the media.
Use of very thin models as a beauty standard.
Curse swearing that has more voluptuous bodies and is out of the standard of thinness.
The fashion industry.
According to Susan Bordo, in "Never just pictures" the media is the biggest factor causing eating disorders. This is because it is the media that sets the standard of beauty when using extremely thin models, as examples of beauty and attractiveness. In addition, media outlets are very critical of actresses who present themselves with fatter bodies, harassing them in articles and TV shows. The fashion industry also plays a role in these disorders, determining what an ideal body is, a body that will look beautiful in any outfit. This causes people, especially women, to seek at all times to reach a dangerous level of thinness. These people, desperate to achieve this standard of beauty, are unable to see themselves thin, even if they are already skeletal and therefore develop eating disorders.
A. Sugar was central to people’s daily lives, work, and economy.
Slavery was abolished in the British Empire in 1833, thirty years before the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States. But even after they freed their slaves, the sugar plantation owners were desperate to find cheap labor to cut cane and process sugar. So the British owners looked to another part of the empire—India—and recruited thousands of men and women, who were given five-year contracts and a passage back.
so that means
My great-grandparents had come from India to Guyana—then British Guiana—in the late nineteenth century to work on the sugar plantations. Sugar was the backbone of the British Empire at that time. The demand was huge, for sugar had gone from being a luxury that only kings could afford to a necessity. Even the poorest of London shopgirls took sugar in their tea.
