Two Classes in America, Divided by ‘I Do’ - The New …

Mesoamerica’s Domestication Revolution was one of the two certainly pristine ones known, and the one around today’s Peru may have been another. The other two of the human journey arose there, and they followed the same general patterns as Sumer and China in that they began peacefully with no classes and, as they grew into states, men came to dominate, elites appeared with monumental architecture devoted to them, potentates had harems and divine sanction, and there were other features that seemingly evidenced universal human traits and/or reactions to similar conditions. The development of religion in what became Mesoamerica’s pristine civilization, the , has been documented by archeologists who traced a seven-thousand-year progression from hunter-gatherers to egalitarian early agriculturists to an elite-dominated society to a pristine state. It was similar to how Mesopotamian civilization developed, including the (today’s rock stars have been likened to the new shamans, as their concerts revive pre-civilized gatherings and rituals). Controversial aspects of Mesoamerican societies have included human sacrifice and cannibalism. They definitely happened, and human sacrifice was practiced on a pretty grand scale at times. The question of Western Hemispheric cannibalism has touched on the lack of domestic animals, so it may have had nutritional aspects, or what is called culinary cannibalism. But most seeming cannibalism is of the cultural cannibalism variety, in which eating flesh has symbolic meaning, whether it is eating somebody to keep their spirit in the family/tribe or to gain spiritual dominance over a fallen foe. Cannibalism was a common charge made against peoples that Europe conquered, but was usually a sensational allegation to remove their humanity and justify their bloody treatment by Europe. Columbus made his from whole cloth.

I’m confused. In task descriptions like this which mention “both”, do they always ask if I agree or not with the word “both”? Could I answer it by stating the negative impacts on both individuals and society then its advantages on both individuals and society in the 2nd and 3rd body paragraphs? Though it seems it is going to be more complicated if i do it this way. I just want to know if the style used in the model essay above is the only way to do it. Thank you and I hope to hear from you.

This essay’s purpose, regarding the human journey’s epochal phases, is to show how humans achieved each Epochal Event, which was always about exploiting a new energy source, and how each event transformed the human journey. Although the civilizations of India and Southeast Asia had unique qualities and achievements, and the Buddhist religion has a great deal to commend (founded, as Christianity was, in the name of another “rebel,”) as well as other world religions, the primary preoccupation of all peoples for all time before the Industrial Revolution was avoiding starvation. Industrialized peoples seem to have partly forgotten this motivation.

How to write the essay for the New FCE exam

hi Liz,
i have a question or you can say confusion specifically related to this model essay. you see question asked about how far you agree with the topic, in my opinion before reading the model answer most of us including me would have chosen a side either agree or disagree. but now my question is you’re partially supporting that’s individual benefits at the same time you’re also talking about negative impacts on society. so in this situation i’m not sure how to do this agree and disagree for the same topic… could we have gone the other way around like conventional way of choosing one side?

The End of History? - Francis Fukuyama

It is precisely this kind of individual and his pursuit of material incentives that is posited as the basis for economic life as such in economic textbooks.[] One small example will illustrate the problematic character of such materialist views. Max Weber begins his famous book, , by noting the different economic performance of Protestant and Catholic communities throughout Europe and America, summed up in the proverb that Protestants eat well while Catholics sleep well.

But I have a question about personal pronouns.
Can we use personal pronouns in our essay.
For example, If I want to say, “We will get fat, if we eat too much junk food.”or should I write that as ” People will get fat, If they eat too much junk food”

An IELTS essay should be between 270 and 290 words more or less. Your introduction alone is around 90 words instead of 40 to 50. You’ve also included creative, imaginative ideas – spider and webs – this is inappropriate for an IELTS essay. You’ve clearly got good English but you won’t even hit 7 unless you learn the right techniques. I highly suggest you think of getting my opinion essay lesson to learn the right techniques:
