It was a highly stressful and challenging time, and readers can learn a lesson or two on life and survival from Steinbeck’s ction. Here’s the take of The Culture Trip on the matter.

People lost homes and jobs, many businesses closed down and saw crashing pro ts, and the Midwest saw a terrible drought that made things worse. Dislocation Steinbeck’s celebrated novels The Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men reference the “Dust Bowl,” referring to the time and place where drought and over-farming wrought havoc on the Midwest. It’s a harsh taste of displacement from natural disaster and lands and homes getting repossessed by bank. People do everything necessary to survive, and it’s a show of strength and the spirit of constantly trying to make it. Clash of cultures Migrant workers moving to California realize things aren’t easier, as they were deemed outsiders and fear of the unknown took over. It’s stress at its highest level, with weariness taking over people due to their dire circumstances. Image source: Medium.com

When In Cancun: Things To Visit And Explore posted Sep 19, 2017, 6:28 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Sep 19, 2017, 6:28 AM ] Of course, Cancun will always be the beach paradise that it is, and the vibrant vibe and youthful energy of its night scene is a veritable selling point. But there are a lot of other things to explore in Cancun and its surrounding islands and locations. From extreme activities to cultural events and spots, Cancun can surprise one as if it’s the first time all over again.
  4. 4. 3/23/2018 Blog - Richard Ohlhaber https://sites.google.com/site/richardohlhaber01/blog 4/22 One can begin by gaining more knowledge about the Mayan culture. The Chichen Itza is one of the most famous archeological sites all over the world. Mayan ruins have been popular tourist spots in Mexico. The focal point is occupied by the distinctive geometrical sophistication of El Castillo which was once a religious temple. The Tulum Ruins is another great site that could supply one with a rich historical perspective. The night could end with Xcaret Park which offers a variety of cultural shows teaching about Mayan history. Image source: goodfreephotos.com A strong theme for Cancun visitors to explore is ecology. Eco-consciousness is the main aim of Museo Subacuatico de Arte, an underwater museum with varying depths for scuba diving and snorkeling. Over 500 life-size sculptures can be found here, a place that
  5. 5. 3/23/2018 Blog - Richard Ohlhaber https://sites.google.com/site/richardohlhaber01/blog 5/22 provided an alternative sanctuary for the proliferation of marine life. Isla Mujeres’ turtle sanctuary is another spot worth one’s time. If one is feeling more adventurous and friendly than usual, probably after having a few sips in the Tequila Herradura Museum where it’s all about the tequila history and fun, downtown Cancun can be an inviting place to be. Taking time off from the Hotel Zone, visitors might want to mingle with the locals and experience the culture from the inhabitants themselves.

Michael Jordan, the point guard posted Aug 17, 2017, 6:45 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Aug 17, 2017, 6:46 AM ] Last season, the NBA saw a thrilling ght for the Most Valuable Player award between two stellar players: Russell Westbrook, who won, and James Harden.  Image source: pinterest.com Westbrook became known as Mr. Triple Double after averaging double digits in points, rebounds, and assists. Harden, who played shooting guard for his entire career before last season, transitioned into the point guard

Realizing that some changes are needed, Jordan held a meeting with head coach Doug Collins, resulting in a decision to let His Airness handle the ball more often and initiate plays as the team’s point guard.  What ensued was probably the best stretch of Jordan’s storied career. Over the remaining 24 games, he averaged 30.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 10.7 assists, recording seven consecutive triple doubles in the process (14 overall).  While the adjustment did not translate to a better winning percentage during that time, Jordan was able to bring out the best in his teammates, the impact of which they would feel two years later when they won the rst of their six championships.

The Two Unforgettable Performances Of Michael Jordan posted Jul 13, 2017, 2:33 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Jul 13, 2017, 2:33 AM ] Unless you hate him and what he did to your team back in the 90s, odds are you’re with the majority of the basketball world who believe that Michael Jordan is the G.O.A.T. He has achieved what very few have accomplished in their lifetimes, and more. Whereas Magic Johnson and Larry Bird before him saved the game of basketball, Jordan changed it forever. Here are two of his most

Image source: sneakernews.com 69 points This was his greatest game in terms of statistics. Beating the Cleveland Cavaliers who were the whipping boys of the Chicago Bulls for over two decades, MJ scored 69 points, grabbed 18 rebounds, dished out six assists, stole the ball four times, and had one block. It was notable for two reasons: it was a close game, and much more di cult to go on a scoring barrage, and he shot an astounding 62 percent from the eld. The Flu Game In MJ’s gutsiest (no pun intended) performance ever, he played with intense pain due to a stomach u. He had to be hydrated every so often just so he could stand up. Players don’t usually suit up if this is the case, but it was the 1997 NBA Finals, and the series was tied two games apiece. With the match, the championship, and his

That is greatness. Image source: NBA.com Richard Ohlhaber is a big fan of Chicago sports teams. Check out this blog for more information on the Bulls, the Bears, and everything Chicago. MJ vs LBJ: GOAT Talk posted Jul 5, 2017, 10:46 PM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Jul 5, 2017, 10:57 PM ] So, Lebron James has nally passed Michael Jordan on the all- time post-season scoring list. James is number one now, and his fans once again clamor for his stake at being the GOAT. Like I said, “his fans”. The rest of the world however, or at least a majority of it, still consider MJ to be the GOAT.
  11. 11. 3/23/2018 Blog - Richard Ohlhaber https://sites.google.com/site/richardohlhaber01/blog 11/22 Image source: pinterest.com But is it really impossible to believe that LBJ can one day pass MJ, and be crowned GOAT? The answer is a (debatable) YES. Michael Jordan’s greatness emerged at a time when Magic Johnson and Larry Bird were winding down as players. Although the league had other great stars in the 90s, they would almost always lose to Jordan and the Bulls. The Bulls never lost in a championship series. MJ was a winner, and not just a stat- ller. Lebron James, on the other hand, could do everything. He’s a more complete player, skill-wise and physique-wise. James has reached the NBA Finals for seven consecutive years, a feat that not even MJ achieved. However, James did lose to his peers in the NBA nals. In fact, his record is 3- 4, while MJ’s is a stellar 6-0.
  12. 12. 3/23/2018 Blog - Richard Ohlhaber https://sites.google.com/site/richardohlhaber01/blog 12/22 Image source: theurbantwist.com The most telling stat in deciding the GOAT however, is as it has always been. Since GOAT status is subjective, it simply means it’s a popularity contest. If that’s the case, then yes, it’s pretty impossible to beat MJ. Richard Ohlhaber is a huge fan of the Chicago Bulls.

The Basic Elements In Developing a Consistent Golf Swing posted May 9, 2017, 6:23 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated May 9, 2017, 6:27 AM ] Golf is a most interesting sport, which is patronized for its engaging challenge on the eld, as well as its e ectiveness in developing networks with signi cant people.  In order to have what it takes to become a decent golfer, one must rst develop a consistent golf swing.  Here are few tips.
  13. 13. 3/23/2018 Blog - Richard Ohlhaber https://sites.google.com/site/richardohlhaber01/blog 13/22 Image source: golfnetguide.com First, you must learn to plant your feet on the ground.  This is crucial because the only leverage you’ll be getting on the green is going to be a result of how rmly your feet are planted.  There’s a reason golf shoes come with small studs.  Good anchorage is what provides what you need for a powerful swing. One error that gol ng beginners make is the lack of commitment to the swing from start to nish.   A swing should be decisive. It cannot be divided into segments, as a swing is an all-or-nothing kind of move.  From the moment you start your swing, you should do it with the con dence to nish.  Hesitation in the middle will foil your attempt. Most coaches will always emphasize that a swing needs to come with a follow through.  It might sound illogical to do this, especially when the follow through is often seen as a motion that hardly in uences the ball that is already on its way to its intended target.  However, the follow through is essential in developing the muscle memory

Batter Up: The Best Chicago Cubs Hitters Of All Time posted Apr 5, 2017, 3:16 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Apr 5, 2017, 3:17 AM ] The Chicago Cubs have been producing Hall of Famers since 1938, the year the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum was established. As a matter of fact, 45 players who played for the Cubs had been inducted, with 16 of those having played more games with The Northsiders than any other team.

Though there were other hitters better than him to have played for the Cubs, not one among them can say that he played his entire career for the team, which was what Ernie Banks did. From 1953 to 1971 – a total of 19 seasons – Banks amassed 512 career home runs for Chicago Cubs, taking home the MVP award in 1958 and 1959.

He even almost brought the team to the World Series but fell one game short against the San Diego Padres in the National League Championship Series. Since then, the Ryno continued to dominate in both batting and elding until his abrupt retirement in 1994.

What people don’t know about Phil Jackson posted Feb 28, 2017, 10:38 PM by Richard Ohlhaber Phil Jackson is also known as the Zen Master. He is one of the winningest coaches in NBA history, having won six championships with the Bulls dynasty of the ‘90s, and ve with the Lakers in the early 2000s. Let’s take a look at some fun trivia on Coach Phil.
  17. 17. 3/23/2018 Blog - Richard Ohlhaber https://sites.google.com/site/richardohlhaber01/blog 17/22 Image source: businessinsider.com Before the start of the season, Jackson would have his team watch Mel Gibson’s Oscar- winning movie “Braveheart.” He found that doing so motivated the team. The triangle o ense, the o ensive system that has brought a lot of success to teams handled by Jackson, was created by his long- time assistant coach, Tex Winter. Jackson was the one who implemented it in his teams. Robert Pirsig’s “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” is often cited by Jackson as one of the most in uential pieces of literature he has ever read. Jackson has won 11 NBA Championships as a coach, and two as a player for the New York Knicks. He has 13 NBA championship rings, which is a world record. Jackson has never had a losing season as a head coach. He has the highest winning percentage of

Who Was The Best Michael Jordan? posted Feb 6, 2017, 3:24 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Feb 6, 2017, 3:24 AM ] Ever since Michael Jordan entered the NBA, basketball has never been the same. Not only did he electrify audiences with his high-flying moves, he also revolutionized how the world saw the game. All of a sudden, marketing exploded, with dozens of brands being elevated because of this one superstar. But there is no denying that he is indeed the greatest of all time. The debate, however, reposes on the question who was the better Michael Jordan? Was it

Or was it the leader of the Bulls dynasty in the 90s? Image source: thecola.net The Michael Jordan of the 80s was a scoring machine in every sense of the word. He would take on several defenders at a time and still score. He was fast and out-leapt almost everyone he faced. 80s Jordan scored at will, and was an efficient slasher to the hoop. Every kid wished to be like him. He was flamboyant, and was a huge superstar early on. 90s Jordan was a bit slower, didn’t jump as high, and didn’t score as much as 80s Jordan. But 90s Jordan was more mature. He knew the game inside out, and knew what it took to win. 90s Jordan developed his mid-range jumper and his defense. He became a more well-rounded, complete player, arguably the greatest team leader in NBA history (probably alongside the greats, Bill Russell, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird), and

Take The Cannoli: The De ning Cultural Impact Of The Godfather posted Jan 3, 2017, 4:32 AM by Richard Ohlhaber   [ updated Jan 3, 2017, 4:33 AM ] From its start as one of the de ning movies of the New Hollywood era, the Godfather has left a cultural impact few other movies can claim. Besides being the de nitive gangster movie, the lm also became a cultural icon, oft referenced and quoted. Moreover, in an entertainingly recursive way, the lm in uenced the activities and behaviors of actual gangsters.

Its author, Tom Santoprieto, describes how the narrative of the young Vito Corleone inspired him to look at his own family's origins as Italian immigrants in a di erent way, and explores the reasons behind the prominence of Italian Americans in organized crime.

In the past, FBI agents repeatedly found copies of the lm in raids of known gangster's houses. Noticeably, they also found out that these mobsters actually started talking like the characters from the movie, which provided no end of entertainment for wiretapping police agents. The most obvious e ect was on the public perception of gangsters. Although far from glamorizing real gangsters (with Don Vito's desire to turn legitimate being the key point of the narrative), the movies did heavily in uence how they were subsequently depicted. Today, no gangster-oriented lm or television series would be without subtle (and sometimes obligatory) shout-outs to the “Godfather.” Born and raised in Chicago, Richard Olhlaber is a big fan of the Chicago Bulls and is fond of movies like the “Godfather.” Visit this blog for more updates on him and his interests. 1-10 of 14
