Tradition is a ritual, belief or object passed down within a society, also a basic character of a society still maintained in the present, with origins in the past. Common examples include holidays or impractical but socially meaningful clothes (like lawyer wigs or military officer spurs), but the …idea has also been applied to social norms such as greetings. Traditions can persist and evolve for thousands of years---the word "tradition" itself derives from the Latin tradere or traderer literally meaning to transmit, to hand over, to give for safekeeping. While it is commonly assumed that traditions have ancient history, many traditions have been invented on purpose, whether that be political or cultural, over short periods of time. Certain scholarly fields, such anthropology andbiology, have adapted the term "tradition," defining it more precisely than its conventional use in order to facilitate scholarly discourse. The concept of tradition, as the notion of holding on to a previous time, is also found in political and philosophical discourse. For example, the political concept of traditionalismis based around it, as are strands of many world religions including traditional Catholicism. In artistic contexts, tradition is used to decide the correct display of an art form. For example, in the performance of traditional genres (such as traditional dance), adherence to guidelines dictating how an art form should be composed are given greater importance than the performer's own preferences. A number of factors can exacerbate the loss of tradition, including industrialization, globalization, and the assimilation or marginalization of specific cultural groups. In response to this, tradition-preservation attempts have now been started in many countries around the world, focusing on aspects such as traditional languages. Tradition is usually contrasted with the goal of modernity and should be differentiated from customs, conventions, laws, norms, routines, rules and similar concepts. (MORE)

How would one compare and contrast the modern industry and the traditional agriculture of Venezuela?
Venezuela is not self-sufficient agriculturally and it must import most of its food. Venezuela's modern industry is oil. Before they discovered oil in 1913, 80% of the population was rural and illiterate. Venezuela now ranks among the richest and most powerful nations in the world.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venezuela#Economy . Main article: Economy of Venezuela The 20 Venezuelan bolÃvar fuerte banknote featuring a portrait of Luisa CÃ¡ceres de Arismendi.. The petroleum sector dominates Venezuela's mixed economy, accounting for roughly a third of GDP, around 80% o…f exports, and more than half of government revenues.They also have gold, diamonds, and iron ore but they do not have as great of an impact on the economey. Venezuela contains some of the largest oil and natural gas reserves in the world. It consistently ranks among the top ten crude oil producers in the world.  The country's main petroleum deposits are located around and beneath Lake Maracaibo, the Gulf of Venezuela (both in Zulia), and in the Orinoco River basin (eastern Venezuela), where the country's largest reserve is located. Venezuela has the least expensive petrol in the world because of its high government subsidies..  Petroleum and other resources . See also: Energy policy of Venezuela . When oil was discovered at the Maracaibo strike in 1922, Venezuela's dictator Juan Vicente GÃ³mez allowed Americans to write Venezuela's petroleum law.  But oil history was made [ peacock term ] in 1943 when Standard Oil of New Jersey accepted a new agreement in Venezuela based on the 50-50 principle, "a landmark event."  Terms even more favorable to Venezuela were negotiated in 1945, after a coup brought to power a left-leaning government that included Juan Pablo PÃ©rez Alfonso. In 1958 a new government again included PÃ©rez Alfonso, who devised a plan for the international oil cartel that would become OPEC.  In 1973 Venezuela voted to nationalize its oil industry outright, effective January 1, 1976, with PetrÃ³leos de Venezuela (PDVSA) taking over and presiding over a number of holding companies; in subsequent years, Venezuela built a vast refining and marketing system in the U.S. and Europe.  . Economic prospects remain highly dependent on oil prices and the export of petroleum. A founding member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Venezuela reasserted its leadership within the organization during its year as OPEC's president, hosting the organization's Second Leadership Conference in 40 years, as well as having its former Minister of Energy, Alvaro Silva Calderon, appointed as Secretary General. The collapse of oil prices in 1997-98 prompted the Rodriguez administration to expand OPEC-inspired production cuts in an effort to raise world oil prices. In 2002, this sector accounted for roughly a quarter of GDP, 73% of export earnings, and about half of central government's operating revenues. Venezuela is the fourth-leading supplier of imported crude and refined petroleum products to the United States.. The Government of Venezuela has opened up much of the hydrocarbon sector to foreign investment, promoting multi-billion dollar investment in heavy oil production, reactivation of old fields, and investment in several petrochemical joint ventures. Almost 60 foreign companies representing 14 different countries participate in one or more aspects of Venezuela's oil sector. The Venezuelan national oil company Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) and foreign oil companies have signed 33 operating contracts for marginal fields in three bidding rounds. New legislation dealing with natural gas and petrochemicals is further opening the sector. A new domestic retail competition law, however, disappointed investors who had been promised market-determined prices.. On November 13, 2001, under the enabling law authorized by the National Assembly, President ChÃ¡vez enacted the new Hydrocarbons Law, which came into effect in January 2002. This law replaced the Hydrocarbons Law of 1943 and the Nationalization Law of 1975. Among other things, the new law provided that all oil production and distribution activities were to be the domain of the Venezuelan state, with the exception of joint ventures targeting extra-heavy crude oil production. Under the new Hydrocarbons Law, private investors can own up to 49% of the capital stock in joint ventures involved in upstream activities. The new law also provides that private investors may own up to 100% of the capital stock in ventures concerning downstream activities, in addition to the 100% already allowed for private investors with respect to gas production ventures, as previously promulgated by the National Assembly.. During the December 2002-February 2003 lock-out where managers and skilled highly-paid technicians of PDVSA locked out PDVSA and sabotaged the industry, petroleum production and refining by PDVSA almost ceased. At the same time, many business owners across Venezuela closed down their stores, both actions being an attempt to destabilize the Chavez government. Despite the lock-out, these activities eventually were substantially restarted when the rank-and-file oil workers restarted PDVSA without the managers. Out of a total of 45,000 PDVSA management and workers, 19,000 were subsequently dismissed; many of which were managers and highly paid technicians..  Manufacturing, agriculture, and trade . Manufacturing contributed 17% of GDP in 2006. The manufacturing sector continues to increase dramatically at a rate of 26.93% annually. Venezuela manufactures and exports steel, aluminum, transport equipment, textiles, apparel, beverages, and foodstuffs. It produces cement, tires, paper, fertilizer, and assembles cars both for domestic and export markets. [ citation needed ] . Agriculture accounts for approximately 3% of GDP, 10% of the labor force, and at least one-fourth of Venezuela's land area. Venezuela exports rice, corn, fish, tropical fruit, coffee, beef, and pork. The country is not self-sufficient in most areas of agriculture; Venezuela imports about two-thirds of its food needs. In 2002, U.S. firms exported $347 million worth of agricultural products, including wheat, corn, soybeans, soybean meal, cotton, animal fats, vegetable oils, and other items to make Venezuela one of the top two U.S. markets in South America. The United States supplies more than one-third of Venezuela's food imports. [ citation needed ] . Thanks to petroleum exports, Venezuela usually posts a trade surplus. In recent years, nonpetroleum exports have been growing rapidly but still constitute only about one-fourth of total exports. The United States is Venezuela's leading trade partner although Brazil is expected to surpass the U.S. by 2011. During 2002, the United States exported $4.4 billion in goods to Venezuela, making it the 25th-largest market for the U.S. Including petroleum products, Venezuela exported $15.1 billion in goods to the U.S., making it its 14th-largest source of goods.

Venezuela is a country with diverse vegetation. You can find from vast forest vegetation to xeric vegetation. However, there are certain types of vegetation that are abundant throughout the whole country: 46% is of forests, the 24% is of Savannah and the rest of the vegetation, the 30%, is of moors,… swamps, xeric vegetation, forest plantations, palm trees, gallery forests, etc. Venezuela is divided into three main regions: The Coast Mountain Region, Central Region and the Guayana Region. These regions, despite being part of the same country, have different topographies and climates, and therefore, the vegetations are not quite the same. In the northern region there are many mountain ranges, this makes the vegetation vary with the altitude. In the higher areas have moor vegetation and bushes (the best examples are the frailejones). In the lower area there are jungles and cloud forests, but you can also find a bit of xerophytes vegetation and savanna. The relief of the central region is more uniform, almost plain, and temperatures are high. Therefore, the vegetation is mostly of xerophytes and savanna, but in the eastern lowlands is dominated by deciduous forests, and in the deltaic plains (region of the west) dominated by forests or cloud forest. In the south, at the Guayana Region, the climate is very humid so the vegetation is mostly of forests, chaparrals, and deciduous forests. All these reliefs and varied vegetation make Venezuela a beautiful country, with unique sceneries and worthy of witnessing. (MORE)
