Woman Grinding Maize – Diego Rivera One of my favorite art works is La Molendera, or The Woman Grinding Maize, by Diego Rivera. The medium of this painting is oil paint on a horizontal canvas that measures 106.7 x 121.9 cm. When I first see this painting, the woman dressed in white with her hair split in two braids, grinding maize on a stone, is what stands out to me the most. It is traditional for women in Mexico that make tortillas to grind the maize, corn, on a rock. In the background I see three already made tortillas baking on top of a ceramic dish. The colors used in the atmosphere are cool toned, which gives you a sense of calm and a soothing sensation. The main colors used here are blue, gray and brown; the only white that was used was for the woman in the picture. I think the reason why Rivera used white for the woman’s dress was to draw attention directly to her and the work she is doing. There is a lot of roundness in the painting. For example, the skillet where the tortillas are heating is round, the stone grinder is oval, and the woman’s arms and body are also round. Overall, Rivera synchronized all the objects in this painting to the same size, everything is painted is bold and big. He had a great sense of color and an enormous talent for structuring his work. Diego Rivera, the creator of this painting, was Mexican and was married to another famous artist, Frida Kahlo. A lot of Rivera’s later work was influenced by historical, political and social themes to show the life of Mexican people. Rivera made La Molendera in the year 1924, which was the time of The Immigration Act of 1924, (The Johnson- Reed Act). The Immigration Act limited the number of immigrants allowed into the United States. Rivera helped established the Mexican Mural Movement along with two other artists, which mainly existed to…...

Chinese Maize Murders

...Lee Skinner ( Person # 37646847 ) World Civilization 1 William Newsome Ramya Sreenivasan The Treatment of Confucianism and Daoism The treatment of Confucianism and Daoism are seen abundantly throughout The Chinese Maize Murders. Many social values of Confucianism are portrayed through Judge Dee, the hero of the novel. The novel portrays the Confucians as having rulers with impeccable intellect and knowledge. The Daoist is viewed as people that do not value thought and education,” Knowledge is bad because it creates distinctions.”( Craig textbook, pg 54) This is supported by the Dragon and Worm analogy in the story. The novel ultimately endorses the values of Confucianism. This is exemplified through the main character Judge Dee and is supported by the fact that the three main conflicts of the story are solved by Confucian thinking and reasoning. The relationship between these two philosophies is seen as Confucianism learning from the thoughts of Daoism. Judge Dee is the ideal Confucian. He rules with rich morals and deeply thought out justice. The Confucian idea that the smartest men should rule is shown through Judge Dee. He is a brilliant man that uses his wit and knowledge to solve case after case. He uses violence when he has to but he prefers to outsmart his opposition to resolve conflict, just as the thoughts of Confucianism state. He demonstrates the Confucian ideas of proper conduct, compassion, generosity and righteousness. Throughout the story he holds up to......

A Woman of Standards

...A Woman of Standards Traditionally considered a subservient sex, the female role has only recently been allowed to surface under the scrutiny of the public eye. In the decades before it, women are undermined and repressed by the men that govern their very essence of being. Men, according to Jean-Jacque Rousseau in his piece Émile, do not require the presence of a woman in his life to retain his position of power, yet by the “laws of nature” women without a man has no control over her own social situation (257). Literature in the both the Enlightenment and Romantic eras help illuminate these ideas by enforcing a significant emphasis on the role and dress of the properly educated female and how that affects, or cannot affect, their standing in society. Elaborating on his previous point, Rousseau points out that, “everything that characterizes sex should be respected as established by nature” (256). The differences in both temperament and character of men and women would likewise indicate how their education ought to be in a natural balance against each other, specializing in different but similar actions (Rousseau 256). To better reinforce his theory, Rousseau challenges mothers to “try to educate them [their daughters] like men. They will be quite willing. But the more they resemble men the less will be their power over men, and the greater their own subjection” (256). The more womanly a female is, the better off she will be. If she retains her proper role, she can only...

Sorrowful Woman

...Sorrowful Woman 1. FIRST RESPONSE. How did you respond to the excerpt from A SECRET SORROW and to “A Sorrowful Woman”? Do you like one more than the other? Is one of the women – Faye or Godwin’s unnamed wife – more likable than the other? Why do you think you respond the way you do to the characters and the stories – is your response intellectual, emotional, a result of authorial intent, a mix of these, or something else entirely? Both writings were very well written and very enjoyable to read. “The Sorrowful Woman” and A Secret Sorrow were similar, although they were very different, due to the inner sorrow they both faced. I enjoyed reading A Secret Sorrow more than “The Sorrowful Woman” due to the fact that I was able to somewhat feel what Godwin’s unnamed wife was feeling. I responded to the characters in an emotional way. I found myself able to sympathize with both Faye and Godwin’s unnamed wife. They both have very deep issues, but being a mother myself, makes me have more empathy for Faye. I could not imagine what it would be to want to push my child or husband, nor could I imagine not being able to have a child of my own. 2. Describe what you found appealing in each story. Can you point to passages in both that strike you as especially well written or interesting? Was there anything in either story that did not appeal to you? Why? In A Secret Sorrow, I found Kai’s love for Faye most appealing. He did not look at Faye’s inability to have children not as a......

Maize Milling Machine Little-Known Function

... people always burnt the maize straw. But now, with science and technology development and maize milling machine innovation and development, maize straw can be utilized more adequately. What usage does processed maize straw have? Corn has more nutrition value than barley, oats and sorghum, especially the rich content of protein, which is the optimum feedstuff. 65% of maize is used as feed and this reaches 80% in developed countries, which is the important basis for animal husbandry development. Maize straw can be used for ensiling or directly for feeding. In China, it generates 200 billion kg of maize straw each year, which is a large potential feed supply source. For herbivore, the net energy for 2kg of maize straw is equal to 1kg of corn kernels. Especially after ensiling, yellowing and saccharifying process by maize milling machine, it has much considerable economic profits. MAIZE MILLING MACHINE can process maize straw into powder. Corn contains high content of fatty acid composition. After grinding, it may easily go bad and become rancidity, especially in summer. If we use the degenerative maize straw as the feed, it will affect livestock appetite and directly affect livestock normal growth. Therefore, before usage, it’s better to grind corn by maize milling machine, and use it up within 10-15 days so as to ensure the feed quality. Especially the high-energy feed for bovine, can be replaced with corn kernels. The shortcoming of maize straw is lack of protein......

Airless Cold Grinding

...Suspended Solid Roasted Nuts Cereal Easy Easy Very Chalky Smooth Up to 98% 70-90% High Low to Medium ProSoya INTSOY ASSOY Kibun SSP Pant Nagar The age old Chinese and Japanese method (traditional method) uses cold grinding of well soaked and rinsed soybean in a stone mill with water. The resulting puree is mixed with additional water and cooked in an open caldron or in a pressure cooker for an adequate time to make it digestible. The cooked slurry is filtered through a filter bag to extract soymilk. The okara (residue in the bag) is pressed to squeeze out more soymilk. The squeezed okara is mixed with water and filtered and pressed again to obtain thin soymilk. This thin soymilk is either mixed with the soymilk already extracted or used in place of water in the stone mill when grinding soybean in order to improve soymilk yield. This method gives soymilk with excellent mouth-feel and good yield. However, the soymilk has very high level of the rancid-oil-like smell which is rather repulsive, especially when soymilk is consumed as a cold beverage rather than as a hot drink. The other most commonly used method is the hot-grind method in its variety of proprietary and sometimes patented forms. Essentially, it involves grinding soybeans (with hulls or without, soaked or dry) with hot, almost boiling water, 2 sometimes accompanied with steam injection, to make ground soybean slurry. Most hot-grind methods use sodium bicarbonate or caustic......

That Woman Cried

...That Woman Cried Written by KyuSe7en501 Note: Forgive me if I ain’t good in writing. T_T Twenty- fourth of January a woman appeared before my eyes. She was crying, really, really hard. I didn’t know what to do, I was at a total loss of words. Since then, I started wondering why women cry; are they just fond of crying, or, do they cry for something men don’t understand? As a man myself I want to know the answer. Not that I love to interfere with their sorrows but I just want to have my curiosity get answered. Do they cry for no reason? Some people say women are beyond emotional. They cry because their hearts are soft, they also waste tears because they are partly weak, in comparison with men. I thought those were enough for me to get my mouth closed. I thought those were the best answers for my questions. But then I realized I could discover it myself, and learn things up through women. Months have passed since the day I found that woman crying; I finally got to see her again in a restaurant. She wasn’t crying at all, nor was she sad. She was all smiling --- so beautifully. Her wide smile made my heart filled with wonderfulness; She also had her hair pony tailed which made her long slender neck appear publicly. Those assets were so nice to see that I wanted to talk to her and get to know her better. She was so beautiful like a goddess. Upon my amazement followed the complete sense of surprise. A man, with a child by his side, got an appearance toward the woman,......
