Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule SS31001 Exploring the 19605 An Interdisciplinary Approach Eugene Hammond Kaplan University August 5 2013 Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 2 As the team opens this time capsule the items enclosed look very promising in giving us some insight to what history claims to be a defining era in our history covering the 1960 s Our first item is a slang dictionary of the times Rich which will allow us to translate some of the communications that we have found over the years It seems this generation had its own vocabulary and at times seemed to redefine the meaning of their basic language and words could have multiple meanings Some examples would be like Killer used as an adjective about something that39s great J oint a Marijuana cigarette Hitto take a drag off a marijuana cigarette or high meaning the feeling of euphoria through experiencing life or by using drugs I can see how buy listening to this generation and the slang they used on a daily basis how the older generation must have felt frustrated by the fact they were unable to communicate with their own children this had to contribute to what we now understand to be the generation gap of this era It also seems that Hollywood was also an in uenced this generation slang by some of the characters like Kookie Kookson III in the movie 77 Sunset Strip Rich who used terns such as Antsville a place full of people Chicks in skins girls wearing furs lighting up the tilt sign simply meant your lying or mushroom people meaning people that came out at night to party It seems that slag back in the 60 s was a less formal and to the point language it was used among certain groups and friends and even regions it seemed to add avor and fun to the communication process amongst these groups But there was also offensive slang terns used during the 1960 s by people of different races that today still have a negative impact on a person If you were to call someone an Uncle Tom it would mean that as a black man you were subservient to the white man the term came from and 1852 antislavery novel Uncle Tom39s Cabin written by Harriet Beecher Stowe the meaning today had taken on the opposite of what Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 3 Ms Beecher was attempting to articulate As a team we feel that these items should be studied in depth to give us the understanding needed to proceed with our findings The second itemed we retrieved from the capsule is a sheet of material and on it is a note that s reads This piece of material was invented in 1966 by a chemist Stephanie Kwolek s at the DuPont Company this material is five times stronger then steel of the same weight the name given to this material is Kevlar Kevlar was one of the most important inventions of the era it was used in variety of different applications from aircraft design space vehicles and building materials this was due to the material being light weight and would not rust or corrode This material was then developed into a bulletproof application for the military and police forces around the world There has always been a need for protection for law enforcement and military personnel from being shot Up to the invention of Kevlar those protection devices were heavy and bulky Kevlar allowed for concealed body armor which could be worn under the uniform shirt and with is lightweight and other properties allowed the police officer or service member to move more freely The ironic thing about Kevlar it was not invented to save lives Swartz it was originally invented to save gas by replacing the steel belts in radial tires as to reducing the weight of the tires Since its conception Kevlar has saved many lives in law enforcement and the military With a combination of Kevlar and new ceramic plates the new vests and helmets are capable of stopping high powered ri e round such as from an AK47 assault ri e This material has also been used in such things auto racing fire protection and building materials due to its ability not to burn giving racers and firemen the protect needed in their dangerous environments Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 4 As we pull our third item out we see a beautiful picture of three leaders of the time see enclosed photo by Leroy C Obeleter This photo shows the famed Dr Martin Luther King J r President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Robert Francis Kennedy side by side The picture gives their birth and death years with portions of the famous speeches These three leaders represent the true American spirit These leaders were taken in the prime of their missions As all three men were for peaceful and nonviolent change they believed in the fact that all men are created equal and that prejudice segregation and the disallowance of equal right should not be tolerated by the American people These three men gave their lives for a country that they believed in In 1963 President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and decorated war hero was assassinated in Dallas Texas there was a great conspiracy theory behind his death which was still being fed into the early 2000 s By the end of the decade he wanted us to send a man to the moon and return to earth which we did but he never got to witness With the programs like NASA and the New Frontier Project ushistoryorg Dr Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis Tenn Dr King believed in change through nonviolence he was also a great speaker On Aug 28 1963 Smithsonian Institution39 one of the largest civil rights demonstrations took place in Washington DC 250000 people of all colors and religions gathered to hear some of the most in uential civil rights leader of the day and Dr King delivered his famous I have a Dream speech Later that year in 1968 Robert Francis Kennedy was assassinated after winning the Democratic nomination RFJ Robert Francis Kennedy was the bother of JFK and as his bother Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 5 he was leading the battle for equal rights for all Americans He wanted equality in education and jobs During his time as US Attorney General he took on organized crime and civil rights violations The next object retrieved appears to be a type of recording devise with several square plastic objects accompanying the devise The little plastic devises labeled cassettes has what appears to be recording artist names of the era labeled on them the devise is labeled as dual voltage of acdc The team commenced to play these cassette tapes which featured artist like Jim Hendrix Janis Joplin The Temptation BB King Joan Baez and many other performers The music of this era seemed to be in uenced by the events of the era except this era unlike others we have studied seemed to branch out more than others It appears that this generation was creating different types of music targeted at certain groups of people These categories of music arranged from war demonstration to the blues to acid rock This devise Morton seemed to be very portable but low quality sound The letter accompanying the recorders states the owner would sit for hours in front of a radio and record their favorite songs but the house would have to be absolutely quiet in order to accomplish this task The owner then goes on to explain that each tape would last 6090 minutes and would have to ipped over half way 3045minutes each side This devise it appears was also used to communicate with loved one that were fighting a war in South East Asia there is a cassette labeled to dad from Mark Karen and Paul This tape has the voices of three children bearing greetings and messages of love to their father You can hear in the back ground a woman who appears to be their mother and his wife coaching the children on the time and what to say to this new machine After the children are done speaking Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 6 the wife talks into the recorder she tells of the families accounts of daily life and how she misses her husband on a daily basis We then we pulled out a tape that appears to be the response to the family You can tell that it was an emotional practice of communicating with a person torn from their families The last itemed discovered in the time capsule was an article concerning a women that was the first recipient of breast implants Timmie Jean Lindsey WebMDcom at the time of the article was a 80 year old grandmother and great grandmother Her story reads that back in the 1960 s she was a divorced mother of 6 who went to a local hospital to have two tattoos removed from her breast The doctor then convinced her that she would be a good candidate for this procedure Ms Lindsey stated that the implants took her from a Ccup to a Dcup in size she goes on to explain that in the time she has had the implants she has had zero problems with them except that they have become a little hard due to calcium build up Ms Lindsey also stated that one of her Grandchildren had under gone the implant process due to have to have a double mastectomy due to breast cancer Ms Lindsey stated that she was impressed how far the process has come since her procedures in the 1960 s and how this medical breakthrough has changed for the better the quality of life for men and women suffering from the in ictions requiring breast implants This medical breakthrough also helps women overcome issues of selfesteem and other physiological issues This procedure has also been used to enhance the images of men and women to make them more appealing to the public for entertainment reasons Even though this procedure was discovered in the 1960 s it did not become popular until the late 70 s to early 80 s Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 7 when a lot of famous movie stars had breast implant surgery to increase their sexy image Some problems did arrive with the silicone implants some leaked causing the recipients to become ill and to have corrective surgeries performed Some of the feminist of the time thought that the procedure was an insulate to women playing on their sexuality other felt that it was a right that a women had in saying what she could and could not do with her body The 1960 s was a great era we seen a lot of changes both good and bad The country seemed to be redefining its self during this time They called the era of free love that might have been true for a short period but it seems like we are still paying that bill today with the divorce so high the marriage unit being redefined and the loss of some of basic morals Then you look at the violence that we endured during that decade with the loss of four leader and the brutality in which they were taken an then came the Vietnam War During that period it was said we lost 50000 American military personnel that not counting injured and mentally affected men and women I hope that future generations take a lesson from the 60 s and that is change is good but are you willing to have our future generations pay the check because nothing is free Running Header Unit 9 nal assignment Time Capsule 8 References Bellis M nd
