Certified Educator Eddie, Marco and Rodolpho each exhibit distinctly different types of masculinity in this play. Eddie is presented as an emotional over-emotional perhaps patriarch.
Miller Alaska has long been regarded as the last frontier offering some of the most remote and rugged mountains in the world. The quest for solitude and adventure lures thousands of climbers from around the world into the backcountry each year to test their skills and wilderness experience.
Unfortunately, every year, numerous accidents and some fatalities result from poor judgment. A hundred years ago wilderness survival skills were a way of life in the Alaska. The rules were simple and harsh: Survival was your responsibility, no one else's.
We have grown socially and culturally unwilling to accept that primitive education which dictated that people simply learned or died. Today, because most people, including most Alaskans, live in urban environments and grow up in an urban culture, wilderness skills are never learned.
The result is that the wilderness-bound end up depending more and more on equipment and less and less on their own competence to deal with dangerous situations in wilderness settings.
Each year in this state, the National Park Service and other agencies conduct backcountry rescues that should never have been needed. Many of these incidents are a result of people forgetting that the most important trip objective and priority is a safe journey out and back. Some incidents stem from a lack of judgment, some from a lack of training.
Outdoor proficiency should come from a long, mentored apprenticeship that presents the opportunities to deal safely with increasingly precarious situations. But there are few opportunities for such wilderness exposure today. Many factors have conspired to change that.
Technology has made it possible to call for rescue from almost anywhere at the same time that it has made backcountry travel easier and faster. Technology has served to blunt respect for the tests Mother Nature can still throw at humans.
Taking communication on a trip is being responsible but basing how much risk you take because of that communication is negligent at best. Many times I have tried to warn climbers and backpackers of nature's cold and harsh realities.
The Alaska environment can be extremely unfriendly to humans. It is indifferent and unforgiving. On top of that, the scale of Alaska is easily underestimated. Most people set unrealistic expectations.
Ten miles cross-country in Alaska is not like 10 miles on trail systems in the lower 48 but more like 30 or 40 trail miles. Arrogance about the outdoors blinds people to these things. I have seen this firsthand too many times.
It is a sad and painful task to tell family and friends when someone is lost or dead in the mountains. Yes, accidents do happen. There are medical emergencies and acts of nature for which no one can plan.
But these are rare. Most accidents are caused by bad judgment compounded by Alaska's severe weather and remoteness.
Many accidents are a result of people making bad decisions because of a lack of knowledge or complacency. An examination of climbing accidents in Alaska shows a great number of rescues involve people who have misjudged the consequences of their decisions and were underprepared for Alaska weather.
The remoteness of the Alaskan backcountry makes everyone susceptible to a catastrophic accident or medical emergency. Hazard evaluation in the backcountry is in part linked to the time you spend there, but there appears to be a refusal on the part of some to let experience teach them.
Some consider their success in the backcountry a reflection of superior outdoor skills although most have never been tested in crisis.
They forget that some crisis is necessary to hone skill.Explain the way in which Duffy presents the strengths and limitations of language in two poems.
When drawing from both 'Warming Her Pearls' and 'Selling Manhattan', it is evident that Carol Anne Duffy maintains a certain avant-garde approach to the vast array of possibilities that language presents. Miller Lite Conciertos Originales, the ongoing, free Latin music concert series, enters its fourth year bigger and better, spanning seven cities with even more chart-topping Latin artists.
