DIVERSE MARRIAGE APPROACHES 2 Diverse Marriage Approaches: Ghost Marriages and Arranged Marriages We have all heard it before, so and so are engaged! They are so in love! Congratulations are given, wedding invitations are sent and a ceremony is conducted in front of family and friends. In the United States, it is not uncommon for a man and women to choose e to marry each other, without any outside influences, other than the reason being they love each other. In most cases, the man asks the woman for her hand in marriage. The man might even go as far to ask the father of the future bride for his daughters hand in marriage. Traditionally, the bride’s family pays for the wedding ceremony, big or small without any other contributions. This is very happy milestone time in a couple’s life. Nonetheless, not all cultures celebrate marriage in the same respect as Westerners. Sometimes, the marriage is erected on tradition and a cultures belief. Other times it is founded due to economic constraints with little input from the marring parties. In this paper, I will discuss two of those cultures that do not share the same traditions of Western societies. First, I will elaborate on the marriage practices of Cantonese, Singapore Chinese, whom practice ghost marriages. Then I will deliberate the arranged marriage traditions of the Maasai Tribe of Kenya, Africa. Lastly, I will compare the two different cultures views on marriage so that you will gain a greater knowledge of the subject. The approach to marriage is very diverse and will differ from country to country depending on the traditions of the specific culture. First, I will discuss the traditions of the ghost marriage of the Chinese. In China, they practice a form of marriage known as Yin Ch’u, Minghun, or what is commonly referred to as a spirit or ghost marriage. This tradition of ghost marriages are widely practiced among the Chinese, although there is very little known of its origins. The ghost marriage primarily involves two people who are deceased. It occurs when “two deceased persons, or more rarely, one living

About this course: Functional programming is becoming increasingly widespread in industry. This trend is driven by the adoption of Scala as the main programming language for many applications. Scala fuses functional and object-oriented programming in a practical package. It interoperates seamlessly with both Java and Javascript. Scala is the implementation language of many important frameworks, including Apache Spark, Kafka, and Akka. It provides the core infrastructure for sites such as Twitter, Tumblr and also Coursera. In this course you will discover the elements of the functional programming style and learn how to apply them usefully in your daily programming tasks. You will also develop a solid foundation for reasoning about functional programs, by touching upon proofs of invariants and the tracing of execution symbolically. The course is hands on; most units introduce short programs that serve as illustrations of important concepts and invite you to play with them, modifying and improving them. The course is complemented by a series programming projects as homework assignments. Learning Outcomes. By the end of this course you will be able to: - understand the principles of functional programming, - write purely functional programs, using recursion, pattern matching, and higher-order functions, - combine functional programming with objects and classes, - design immutable data structures, - reason about properties of functions, - understand generic types for functional programs Recommended background: You should have at least one year programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript or Ruby is also sufficient. You should have some familiarity using the command line.
