I wish I had a camera to document my father 's reaction to the documentary My Brooklyn. The look of nostalgia shifted constantly from being twisted with anger, disappointment, and regret. I think this article is a great companion piece to the documentary as it talks about Fort Greene and Fulton Mall. It also talks about Spike Lee 's speech briefly, which is an interesting thing to focus on when it comes to Rhetoric. I found his speech quite inspirational, and I felt the same anger he felt with each colorful curse word he used, all though I wish he would have used the other curse words instead of just “motherfuckin”.
Mullins in his article used many logical fallacies especially generalization so he can give his words sort of reliability. The first hasty generalization appears when the author states “everybody is having a better ….” Here the author himself is giving you the feeling of sadness that everybody is happy except you, they might not be that happy or simply you see them like this because you feel sad. The author also from the middle of the article till nearly the end was telling us the story of some kid called Amolak Singh, which was a good example of his to support his idea, but indeed it is over generalization as it is an individual situation and Amolak has his own personality and it is not a must for us all to act like him. There is also a post hoc fallacy when he stated “the more people used Facebook, the more ……” he tries to connect between the time spent online and volume of sadness, actually it make no sense due to lack of casual
I enjoy using the occasional curse word when I speak, and I tend to use them frequently when I speak of something that I am passionate about, argue for something, or try to ease frustration. Some may think that swearing is a new, crude, and unintelligent aspect of today’s society. However, the truth behind swearing may come to a surprise. Natalie Angier’s “Almost Before We Spoke, We Swore” reveals some of the science, history and psychology behind why humans swear and where swearing came from. In the U.S. today, the Senate sees obscenities as a new-found virtual pandemic that must be brought to a stop or, at the very least restricted.
He starts to allow the reader to empathize with him by going from identifying the woman as his victim to stating how her response caused him to feel bad about himself. Staples does an excellent job in drawing a guilty sensation from the audience, which is important when gaining an emotion response. "I grew accustomed to but never being comfortable," in my opinion, this is the most influential statement because it makes the readers feel guilt and think about being in the writer 's shoes (614). He accomplishes a rhetorical goal by pulling emotion from his audience. He makes the audience see from his level that racism still exists whether society chooses to believe it or
His vocabulary is very broad and he uses phrases such as “in retro-spective was their agenda, but was more viscerally affected (…) because the veneer of the protest’s idealistic objective gave…” and slang like “Old Bill”. This versatility creates a sense that he is fully aware of the subject - both on an academic level and a personal level and can therefore affect more
We know people like him and that is what makes hims such an interesting person that can be related to. The character is also consistent throughout the film, and we can watch his change, and understand that it makes sense, and is believable with what we know of his values and tendencies. His actions are not predictable, but we can definitely understand where he is coming from and comprehend the decisions he makes after the makes them; nothing shocks us and takes us out of the narrative. The story itself also follows Aristotle’s understanding of the most effective plot, one where a basically good man suffers bad fortune through his own weakness or ignorance; along the same note, is the fact that the drama also reaches its ultimate goal according to Aristotle, bring
This statement feels extreme but those are the kind of lines that grab the attention of the audience. He hypes even more on this subject as he pronounced, "It is an idea of government that encourages our fears and destroys our faith, for where there is faith, there is no fear, and where there is fear, there is no faith." This repetitious and rhythmic rhetoric puts us, the spectators, on a temporary high of satisfaction simply because of the
Use humour to add tension: Isaac Asimov observed,” For a humane person, the put-down is most satisfactory and most easily greeted with pleasurable laughter when the person being put down has done something to invite it – in other words, if he has attacked. Then it is lunge-and-riposte and at the riposte we can laugh with a clear conscience.” When a character make himself the butt of the joke, it demonstrates unifying humour. Two people can also kid about a common situation, it shows they have a special bond or friendship. Bringing in humour in a film makes the film less serious and the audience won’t be so serious about what is happening or what is going to happen. They will know not to take it so
Therefore, I would like to explain more about the effect of climate change not only to human but also to the animals, ecosystem and to the whole world. I can see that one of the climate changes that are currently happening right now at our country is El Nino. From an article , it says that the El Nino phenomenon that happens in Malaysia will end in June. I think that this brings bad news for all Malaysian People because one from an article by Lyn Ong , the writer said that the El Nino phenomenon will cause the rice-producing states like Kedah will experience a low production of rice. This is not a good sign because rice is the staple food for all Malaysian especially for Malay.
Not only can the debaters benefit from group debates but the quality of information that is sent back and forth throughout these arguments can benefit the matters at hand. With the good always comes a little bad, so there are some drawbacks to debates as well. When people put in so much effort and passion into their opinions, points, and views, they can become sensitive, emotional, offended, and even provoked. This is not the intent for debates, but it can happen. Also, debates are basically a battle between people and one side wins and one side loses.
