HIMNO NACIONAL DEL ECUADOR HIMNO NACIONAL DEL ECUADOR | Considerado entre los himnos más lindos del mundo, por su letra y composición, el canto patrio resalta la valentía de los ecuatorianos, de sus héroes y de sus hombres y mujeres más valiosos, quienes lucharon por alcanzar la libertad. Fue escrito por uno de los literatos más importantes del país, el ambateño Juan León Mera. La música fue compuesta por Antonio Neumane. En 1865 se solicitó a Juan León Mera componer la letra del Himno Nacional y aceptó. Hubo algunos intentos por modificar la letra, pero finalmente el Congreso Nacional de 1948 lo proclamó, como oficial .Cuando se canta el Himno Nacional se hace con respeto y cariño, pronunciando correctamente las palabras y se mantiene una posición correcta. Aunque consta de seis estrofas y un coro, por tradición, se canta una de ellas y el coro. | |

HISTORIA DEL HIMNOHISTORIA DEL HIMNO NACIONAL | 1830-1832: El bardo guayaquileño José Joaquín de Olmedo escribe una Canción Nacional (un coro y cuatro estrofas) en homenaje al naciente Estado ecuatoriano. Esta creación sugerida por el Gral. Juan José Flores no fue musicalizada ni tampoco logró difusión.

1833: Un himno con título de Canción Ecuatoriana (seis estrofas) se publicó en la Gaceta del Gobierno del Ecuador No. 125 del 28 de diciembre. El trabajo señala 1830 como el año de su creación, pero la mayoría de los cronistas no le presta total atención por ser de un autor anónimo. 1838: Una Canción Nacional (coro y cinco estrofas) aparece incluida en el folleto Poesías del General Flores en su retiro de La Elvira, que publicó la Imprenta del Gobierno. En edición posterior presenta cambios en su tercera estrofa. Aún así, para los historiadores es la segunda Canción Nacional que se conoce.

1865: El músico argentino, Juan José Allende, que colaboraba con el Ejército del Ecuador, presenta al Congreso…...

Anthem Analysis

...Anthem Essay In literature we can pull a deeper meaning from characters and what they say in the book. In order to understand these things you have to read between the lines and delve deep into what the author is really trying to say. It is important that you really understand the true meaning of the book so you can truly understand the whole point of the book. I am going to try and get the true meaning out of these three quotes and tell you what they mean to me. “To be free, a man must be free of his brothers.” To me this quote means that we can be influenced and learn from other people but we shouldn’t be exactly like them and agree with everything they say. We need to have our own original thoughts in order to be our own person. Just being able to think for ourselves and understanding who we truly are and why we are here will make us truly happy. “It is my mind which thinks, and the judgment of my mind is the only searchlight that can find the truth” know what is right and runs away in to the uncharted forest. An example of this in the book would be that equality 7-2521 invents a light bulb, and takes it to the world house of scholars. They reject his idea and he runs away into the uncharted forest because he knows his invention is not useless. He finds a home there from “the unmentionable times” and lives in it with the golden one. This is a good example because it shows that if you do what you know is right then you will always be rewarded for and live a happier life...

Chevron and Ecuador

...lawsuit in Ecuador and identifies how the management can handle this squint situation. The Amazon lawsuit is a very big threat to the company’s profit, since the penalty payments will cover over 50% of the company’s current profit. To understand the situation of Chevron today we need to take a closer look at the background story. The Story goes back to the 1960’ies when Texaco, an acquisition of Chevron, was involved in the oil drilling in Ecuador. Back then Texaco had a Joint venture with Petro Ecuador which was mainly owned by the Ecuadorian government and had a share of 62.5 percent. This Joint venture named Texpet drilled 1.7 billion barrel oil from government properties until the end of contract in 1984. After finishing the work Texpet was suit by the Ecuadorian government, because of violation of environmental laws. These violations included the direct release of toxic wastewater into rivers instead of filtering and dumping in isolated areas and unclosed pipelines that additionally caused the pollution of soil, groundwater and plants. Back then Texpet paid a 40 million Dollar penalty and from 1995 to 1998 Texaco undertook a remediation of 161 out of 430 pits to clean their share of agreements according to the governments criteria. The Story of Texaco in Ecuador seemed to be terminated, but the appearances were deceptive. A cancer study by the Harvard medical school and around 50 additional studies by well-known scientists in 1994 confirmed health issues in......

Anthem

...There is a variety of ways and perspectives on viewing sin. In the story of Anthem by Ayn Rand, Equality 7-2521 is able to gain his freedom and to get his knowledge during that time. Ayn Rand also compares her book to the story of Adam and Eve. The main characters are similar but they are in so many ways different. Through her comparisons on both stories she shows that Equality has the liberty to gain freedom and Adam loses all his privilege due to sinning. Ayn Rand shows through 'sin' is a way of earning a lesson and gaining knowledge. Equality breaks laws to discover that they are hiding information from society. He knew he was not free within the council rules. (Rand. pgs 18-19) Although with Adam things are different. Freedom was his since he was created by God. (Genesis 1-2) This knowledge begins to make him realize that he was just one. Himself. He was not a unite or better yet a We. This reveals that your sin can help you gain the knowledge that you need to have to realize from right and wrong. Equality has so many rules to follow. He is not available to write, he must not speak of the Unmentionable times, he must call himself We, he must do the job the council has supply him with. (Rand. pgs 17 - 105) From all those rules he has broken nearly all of them and which has gave him to suffer bad consequences. Adam only needs to obey one command. (Genesis 3:11) From breaking that one command he has lost everything. He was lead on from an outside source. If he did not......

Debate over the National Anthem

...over the National Anthem Lonny Wood COM/155 February 23, 2014 Eva Harvey Debate over the National Anthem In early September of 2001, the United States of America found itself under attack yet again. Later on that tragic day, after the dust had cleared, Americans witnessed as three firefighters raised the American flag over what was once the World Trade Center. This one picture put the world on notice: the United States of America was still here. America’s pride had suffered a blow, but the attack rekindled America’s patriotism. Songs where sung from the floors of the New York Stock Exchange to the halls of congress. People were singing, God Bless America and America the Beautiful, and the American flag flew throughout the land. As the days passed, speculation of America national anthem came into question, renewing a debate as to whether the Star Spangled Banner should continue to be the national anthem. Having a debate over the United States’ national anthem while preparing for war might have seemed trivial; however, this was not the first time in which the Star Spangled Banner as the national anthem came into question. In the 1960’s during the Vietnam War, questions arose as to whether or not that United States should change the national anthem. It would seem that the question of the national anthem comes to mind during times of war, when American patriotism is at a high point. This leads to the question of which song should replace the current anthem. ......

Economic of Ecuador

...Consuelo Winn Mr. Sean Wilcox ENL 201 Writing June 16, 2013 The Impact of Economic Improvement in Ecuador In the last 34 years, since Ecuador returned to democracy and changed to the US Dollar for currency in 2000, life and the economy has drastically improved. Although Ecuador is still considered to be a poor country compared to “Westernized” countries its economy is ranked 8th in Latin America; includes Central and South America. This economy has grown due to two main changes: Governmental policy changes and focusing on increasing production of exports. However, with economic growth also increased environmental problems. One reason why the economy has improved is government policy changes. In 1979 Ecuador returned to democracy after nearly a decade of civilian and military dictatorships. Returning to democracy has given stability to a corrupt government. In 2000, Ecuador adopted the U.S. dollar as its national currency. Dollarization further stabilized the government as well as the economy since the U.S. dollar is seen as a stronger, more reliable currency throughout the world. Returning to democracy and changing to the U.S. dollar made Ecuador more appealing to tourists and investors; both of which added a much needed boost to the economy. One of the best examples of this would be the city of Cuenca. Tourism and investors from abroad has made Cuenca the number one retirement city in the world and has helped the country's economic development in the last decade.......

The Nation - Our Anthem

...THE NATION – OUR ANTHEM A national anthem is a generally patriotic musical composition that evokes and eulogizes the history, traditions and struggles of its people, recognized either by a nation's government as the official national song, or by convention through use by the people. – Wikipedia The Nigerian National Anthem as a musical composition that evokes to mind the history, achievement and responsibility of every single entity residing within the geographical terrain of the Nation. Arise, O compatriots. “Arise” means to emerge; become apparent. Simply put, the time has come. It is now! A “Compatriot” is a native or inhabitant (a person that is a permanent resident of a place) of one's own country. Nigeria, has since 1978, been calling you, her compatriots, to rise to the occasion of becoming apparent to a certain responsibility. Nigeria's call obey. There is a summon by the nation wherein you inhabit. It is expedient for you to note that being called by your country of residence is a privilege and never a right. To serve our Fatherland. The call is very simple – to be useful in the land of your ancestors. Service to the land of your origin can never be wrong. We live in a land where the destination is to become a Nation (a large body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government peculiarly its own), but unfortunately those who have been given the mandate to serve are being served,......

Anthem Essay

...The journey from being a teenager to adulthood is almost universal. In the novella Anthem, by Ayn Rand, Equality 7-2521's journey was just like any other. Equality spent is whole life finding his identity, he was controlled, and he conformed to those around him. Today, identity plays a major role in the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Your identity is who you are. Equality did not know himself as an individual. He only knew his brothers and him as being one person. We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever." (1.8) In Anthem, individuals have no identity of their own. They are not allowed to act as individuals, or to think of themselves as unique. Instead, the only real identity they have is the group identity, “WE”. Teenagers do not have much control over their lives. Someone is in control and his or her lives revolve around a schedule. “ We arose when the big bell rang in the tower and we went to our beds when it rang again.” (1.5) Just like equality, teenagers live on a schedule. Every morning they get up, get ready for school, go to school, do homework and participate in extra curricular activities then do it all over again the next morning. Conformity is a struggle that most teens face during their transition to adulthood. Equality faced conformity throughout the whole novella. “ We strive to be like all our brother men, for all men must be alike.” (1.7). In Equality's society, everyone must be......

Ecuador

... ECUADOR PEST Analysis Summary Ecuador is a small country with about 15.8 million people found along the Pacific Coast of South America. The country is located between Colombia and Peru (see Exhibit 1).[1] Ecuador has a relatively long experience with democracy, but it has been marked by frequent cycles of instability. This all ended with the election of President Correa, a left-learning U.S. trained economist, in late 2006. President Correa succeeded in gathering the country to support a referendum and the Constitution was then rewritten. This referendum increased the power of the president and allowed the president to run for two consecutive terms. President Correa was then reelected in April 2009. His new term began in 2013. He is also currently attempting to change the constitution one more time to remove the limit on presidential terms so that he can run for president indefinitely.[2] Ecuador’s economy is mainly dependent on exports including petroleum, bananas, and other agricultural products. More than half of export earnings are derived from its oil resources; this providing approximately two-fifths of the government revenues. [3] Despite the significant changes in Ecuador’s standards of living, and the increase in the income of the poorest of 40% of the population in 8.8%, compared with the 5.8% of the country, there is still a lot to be done to tolerate and enlarge what has been......

Ecuador Roadtrip

...Ecuador Roadtrip Introduction Travelling experience Body Ecuador around the world The “Ruta del Spondylus” Food, adventure, night life Conclusion Learning about my culture Personal experience. For many people the word “travelling” can have many meanings. Some people would consider that If you don’t get in a plane then you’re not really travelling, or that if you don’t go shopping in the place you are visiting then you’re not really travelling either. However, for many people, especially foreigners, travelling is more of a learning experience. You can get to know different cultures, people, customs, food, infrastructure, history, music, languages, dialects and so on. There is a specific kind of trip called “roadtrip”. Roadtripping started as a hippie thing, it’s basically about driving around to different cities, towns, countries without a plan. You can either end up in a nice hotel or at a road motel and both will make you feel or give you the same comfort; even there will be times when you will have to sleep in your own car. Ecuador is most known around the world as a touristic place; actually, most known by foreigners than by their own people (Ecuadorians). I’ve met a lot of foreigners, from different countries, from the US, Europe, Middle East, Latin Americans and so on, and most of them know Ecuador for their beaches and especially for Galapagos Island. We are supposed to teach other people about our country; unfortunately, it......

Anthem Essay

...2nd hour. 1/23/11 Honors 9 Taking over, one step at a time. The brainwashed society that Equality spent his life in, headed down hill, in one simple action, with a strong result of an outcome. Equality had been taught to ask no questions about anything that took place and everything happened for a reason. They feared their brothers would not feel the same way and automatically became dissatisfactory. No one person could talk to their brothers on how they were currently feeling about the present conversation, because it categorize as something out of the ordinary. The novella, Anthem, written by Ayn Rand, discussed all of those issues and more. All of the people get specifically told they think the exact same way because they equally symbolize the same person. To brainwash someone completely, you eliminate all conversations between people. You tell them repeatedly the scholars know every wonder of the world. But most importantly you have to take control of their mind, the correct way, with all of the exact on techniques. In order to control a man, you have to brainwash them through methods of manipulation. In the blank minded humans of the society presented in this novella, a casual conversation, never took place. The incorrect thing to do was tell someone how you felt. According to the rules, everyone felt the same. So Equality never told anyone how he felt about a situation. In his writing, he wrote, “it is a sin to think words no others think and put......

Anthem

...Anthem: The Process of Liberation Many years ago, I read my first book by Ayn Rand, Anthem. I completed the book in about four hours. At the time, I was not mature enough to fully appreciate Anthem's powerful symbolism. My attitude as I read the beginning of the book was one of indifference and confusion, maturing only later into concern and vigorous interest. This experience began a new phase in my intellectual development that soon led me to read Atlas Shrugged. I then started on Ayn Rand's non-fictional works. My understanding of Rand's philosophical system, however, came piece by piece. There was no one instant of recognition, no single ``aha.'' Until recently, I was not fully aware that I had been affected so deeply. My progress was step-by-step and I had never looked all the way back. As I began to read Anthem for a second time, I found myself in acute pain, even at the first paragraph. I continued to read it feeling much as a person would when touring a concentration camp, for, in effect, that was exactly what I was doing. There was not one hint of levity in my mood; I do not even recall breathing. I was truly looking all the way back. At the end of chapter nine, when Equality 7-2521 is alone, in the most profound sense of the word, with his Golden One, she says slowly, ``We are one ... alone ... and only ... and we love you who are one ... alone ... and only,'' I feared I could tolerate the book no longer. I had......

Anthem Essay

...Anthem Essay Christian Louis Lange states, “Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.” The Council of Scholars in the novel Anthem lives to believe technology is dangerous. Anthem is by Ayn Rand, Equality 7-2521 is a different in his collectivist society. He overcomes and creates a new invention that no one has ever thought about before. He breaks away from the society and forms his own based on a new line of technology. Technology was looked down upon in the society because it was not used in a good way in the war before the times of the Great Rebirth. In Anthem technology is viewed poorly and as a destruction to society. In the book, “But we must never speak of the times before the Great Rebirth, else we are sentenced to three years in the Palace of Corrective Detention”(Rand 19). This shows the society will not not talk about the times before the Great Rebirth at all. It is important because it shows the war times must have scared the government greatly. This makes the government unwilling to changes and new ideas that relate to those times. Also, “ But terror struck the men of the Council. They lept to their feet, they ran from the table, and they stood pressed against the wall, huddled together, seeking the warmth of one another’s bodies to give them courage” (Rand 70). This now shows how the Council reacted to Equality’s invention due to their experiences. This is important because the fear of technology advancement frightens them very much due to the...

Anthem Essay

...David Karpe 8/9/11 English 10H Ms. Metrakos Anthem take-home essay Is enslaving a person’s body the way to control them? Not only do you have to enslave the person’s body but you must also control their mind and thoughts. If you can control their thought you then have full influence over them. This is how the leaders or “council” in Anthem fully control all the people, they: force people to think a certain way, the people had never seen the outside world or have heard of any other way to live, and people are very used to this type of society and living this way. There may be pro and cons to upholding a society this way, but its like owning a car for thirty years, sure for the first couple years it’s great to drive and works very well but eventually its rusts and gets old and then it’s time to buy a new one. It has gone too far with the complete mind control. People should be free willed and have the ability to think for themselves. To fully control a person, the council must not only enslave their bodies but also destroy his mind. One way the leaders of the council seek to accomplish this is by forcing people to think a certain way. The council decides what is best for the people and enforces those ideas, and the people are forced to live that way. They are told to obey or they will......
