They couldn’t prove it now. They can’t talk to my secretary because she is dead” (Black Dahlia). With all this evidence pertaining to Dr. George Hodel it’s easy to see why some people say he was the killer. To sum up people believed that George Hodel used his medical experience to kill and dissect her and left her for dead then other people believed he killed more people and decompose them in his
The goal of the usage of this fact is to show readers this common term does not reflect real traits of smart people and can be treated as an insult because of that. It is one of the few examples of Fridman’s appeals to readers’ logic. The essay is based on general data; the author mentioned schools and universities promote negative attitude to smart students: “Nerds are ostracized while athletes are idolized” (Fridman). But he did not use any statistical or science data to support his position. For example, Fridman could provide data about scholarships and other types of funding for sports and other activities.
“Generation Debt” by Alethea Spiridon is an argumentative essay that outlines the harsh reality of student loans. The author examines the consequences of student loans as well the reasons higher education should not come as an expense to the individual pursuing it. In the current job market a post-secondary degree is a prerequisite for almost any profession and the sad reality is that this costly degree is not a guarantee of future wealth. The author effectively explains why treating education like a luxury good can impoverish everyone, and outlines ways student debt can burden graduates’ lives. However, she fails to examine the reasons student loans can be advantageous, and this is problematic because there are several missing benefits including manageable reimbursement options, lower interest rates, as well as student friendly terms and conditions when compared to a standard loan.
Precious Knowledge presents the controversial issue of the integration of ethnic studies courses in schooling. Ethnic studies is the study of cultural, racial, ethnic, and gender differences in America. In this essay, I will argue Ethnic studies courses should belong in P-12 schooling, because the classes endorse ideals of America. In addition, people rely on the courses to learn critical thinking of the empowerment of identity. Although advocates for the abolishment of ethnic studies courses argue that the courses create a sense of contempt towards America through racism and are not remarkably significant, they do not fully comprehend the success from ethnic studies and that by taking away the classes, they only promote their fear of students disliking America.
The Columbine High School shooting on April 20, 1999 was a catastrophe of epic proportions, some argue that nothing could have been done, but with the advancements of technology and research on the internet people can see how badly Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were bullied and harassed, people can also learn how if signs like internet posts and obsessions with weapons were taken seriously this horrific event could have been prevented. Historical Context Who you you blame if your child shot someone, would you blame him, maybe yourself, but what if terrible things happened at school that no one took notice to. The two boys, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, fall into this third category. They were bullied endlessly by
The alexandrite locket Sondra took from Rosalie after she was murdered contained a picture that “looks like Rosalie” and was assumed to be Rosalie’s mother which was more than enough evidence for Mr. Carpenter and his team to search for the missing evidence to solve the mystery. Tracing back from previous evidence, Mr. Carpenter concludes that Eliot Kendall is the person who is responsible for all the murders. By using Edgar Allan Poe’s device, Mr. Carpenter reveals to the audience who the murderer
The purpose of education is to improve our thinking which can lead to success. Defining modern schooling and its effectiveness proves to be quite controversial. Based on how the unsatisfactory system is run and the claim that it produces immaturity causes people to start questioning if mandatory schooling is really necessary to achieve an education. School determines the type of education a student is allowed to receive based on their social class meaning that the upper class may have access to better books and programs while the poor can not.
The announcement of a new, censored, version of Mark Twain’s classic, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn sparked controversy across the United States regarding which version provides the better educational experience. Even though the revised publication may be more politically correct in the present day, it dampens the milieu of the story. Additionally, the argument for censorship in the novel is weak considering the social discomfort created from word ‘nigger’ can be used to form an educational lesson or discussion. The original edition of the novel provides would be a better a inclusion to an educational curriculum because it includes improved syntax when compared to Alan Gribben’s publication. Dr. Sarah Churchwell of the University of East
Gerald Graff’s essay “Hidden Intellectualism” contemplates the age-old idea that street smarts are anti-intellectual. However, as Graff points out, “schools and colleges are at fault for missing the opportunity to tap into such street smarts and channel them into academic smarts.” (244). What Graff means by this is that being street smart does not mean a person lacks intelligence. Rather, educational institutions need to find a way to effectively ‘tap into’ this different format of intellectualism to produce academic intelligence.
The authors also waited until the very end of the article to discuss just how important DNA analysis was in saving people’s lives. Introducing this earlier in the article, to show the audience how DNA analysis could save or kill someone, would have made the readers keep this in mind and really be shocked at all of the mistakes Lifecode was making. Overall, this article was very good, but a few things could have been
For question 5, I thought cars was going around 28 to 30 miles per hour. I was in the "hit". I guess my perception of the speed was slightly slower when compared to Derrick's response. I assumed this because to the front of taxi had no visible damages. Some word and questions did influence me.
Victor Davis Hanson displays mostly opinion along with two significant thinking shortcomings in his article regarding cuts to defense spending. The two shortcomings, point of view and assumptions are analyzed by using A Critical Thinking Model in Dr. Gerras critical thinking paper as a guide. For example, Mr. Hanson does not represent or consider the opposing point of view in this article. The reader can recognize Hanson’s own point of view being against cuts to the defense budget. Hanson does not empathize with others by pointing out that unfunded entitlements like social security, Medicare and food stamps are creating the budget and spending crisis.
