The melting pot is a metaphor for a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneous , the different elements "melting together" into a harmonious whole with a common culture or vice versa, for a homogeneous society becoming more heterogeneous through the influx of foreign elements with different cultural background with a potential creation of disharmony with the previous culture. Historically, it is often used to describe the assimilation of immigrants to the United States. [1] The melting-together metaphor was in use by the 1780s. [2] [3] The exact term "melting pot" came into general usage in the United States after it was used as a metaphor describing a fusion of nationalities, cultures and ethnicities in the 1908 play of the same name.

The desirability of assimilation and the melting pot model has been reconsidered by proponents of multiculturalism , [4] [5] who have suggested alternative metaphors to describe the current American society, such as a mosaic , salad bowl , or kaleidoscope , in which different cultures mix, but remain distinct in some aspects. [6] [7] [8] Others argue that cultural assimilation is important to the maintenance of national unity, and should be promoted.

    In 1845, Ralph Waldo Emerson , alluding to the development of European civilization out of the medieval Dark Ages , wrote in his private journal of America as the Utopian product of a culturally and racially mixed " smelting pot", but only in 1912 were his remarks first published. In his writing, Emerson explicitly welcomed the racial intermixing of whites and non-whites, a highly controversial view during his lifetime.

    The City of New York is an important center for music, film, theater, dance and visual art. Artists have been drawn into the city by opportunity, as the city government funds the arts with a larger annual budget than the National Endowment for the Arts , and New York is a major center of the global art market which grew up along with national and international media centers. [1]

    New York City is home to the headquarters of the National Football League , [3] Major League Baseball , [4] the National Basketball Association , [5] the National Hockey League , [6] and Major League Soccer. [7] The New York metropolitan area hosts the most sports teams in these five professional leagues. Five of the ten most expensive stadiums ever built worldwide ( MetLife Stadium , the new Yankee Stadium , Madison Square Garden , Citi Field , and Barclay''s Center ) are located in the New York metropolitan area.

    Don t worry you are not the only one with that opinion. I think getting pregnant poses a sacrifice to the mother. You have to leave all of your vices in order to give your baby the highest chance of being a healthy baby. I really need a glass of wine and people tell me all the time that a couple of sips won t hurt the baby and I just ignore their opinions and go with my heart.

    The Pots set your groups up and are meant to increase random selection and ensure fair play. The Pots are divided by strength and confederation. Pot A holds the top seven best in the pool of teams qualified + the host nation. This is where the strength aspect comes to play. The explanation behind this is, because being in the Pot A is an advantage, you avoid the very top teams until the knock out stage. Meaning Brazil will never play Germany, nor will Spain ever play Argentina in the groups. This increases the chance of fair play. Pot A: Brazil, Spain, Argentina, Germany, Uruguay, Belgium, Switzerland and Colombia. The rest is to increase the random chance of selection. Pots are split by confederation so that no two teams o the same confederation play each other (EXCEPT UEFA). You played against the teams in your confederation to qualify, so you can avoid them in the World Cup until the knock out stages.
