Cultureand People

Afterthe migration of people when they rushed to get the gold and improvetheir living standards, the effect was a culture of brilliant andtalented people. The people are humble and are developed in terms oftechnology in that they have replaced normal words with techie ones.This is from the Silicon Valley area where there are many companiesrelated to technology. People use the term bandwidth rather thantime. The technology is supreme. Silicon Valley in California istechnologically ahead. People use ipads in church to read notes.Also, the people have a rich culture and a diverse one. When anindividual walks around, it is not hard to get people with differentlanguage groups (Matthewsand Glenna85)

Thereis a mixture of different ethnicities which is amazing. A mixture ofculture prevents close mindedness. It also encourages people to existoutside their little bubble that the world is wide and waits to beexplored and discovered. The culture is a cause phenomenon whichencourages people to live with people of different diversities,cultures and religions. The existence of Filipino places encouragesthe Filipinos to feel as if they are at their country (Matthewsand Glenna86).

Fromthe onset of gold rush, California has experienced immigration wherethe California born residents are the majority of the people. Therich culture serves as a prerequisite upon which many people lovemigrating to and living in California. The California culture is thatof the western culture which derives roots in the United States andinfluence of Hispanic. As a coastal and border state, the culture isinfluenced by the immigration from Asia and Latin America. The peoplehere are diverse in terms of technology, lifestyle, living standards,way of life and the way they present themselves in differentsituations. This is quite encouraging especially when it acts as aground upon which diverse cultures and people interact together andform one unified state. Racial segregation is very few since thepeople have tried to establish their own culture and not necessarytaking into consideration the culture they came from. Thisestablishes integration and unity among the ethnic tribes (Matthewsand Glenna 87).
