Benjamin Franklin was an influential founding father because he achieved greatness in math and science, he established many public community buildings, and had a successful printing business. (“Benjamin Franklin” ABC-CLIO). Benjamin Franklin was a mathematical and scientific genius who made many inventions that contributed to the studies of math and science. Even though Benjamin Franklin was a genius, some people thought that there were certain subjects where he did not excel; not as much as he did in science and writing. When talking about schooling, Benjamin Franklin stated, “I acquired fair writing pretty soon, but I failed in the arithmetic, and made no progress in it.
“Harrison Bergeron” and Anthem are both pieces of dystopian literature which portray (their protagonists,theme,education) similarly.

To continue, this gave him absolutely unprecedented access to information on the heavens-and he was the first to capitalize on it. While military leaders in Europe, were using their spyglasses to spy on their enemies, Galileo was observing the sky and in doing so he discovered secrets that had lay waiting for millennia. Due to the fact that Galileo lived and studied during such an opportune time, he is considered by most to be the father of modern observational astronomy, and the father of modern physics. He was the first to lay eyes on the Rings of Saturn, and he also discovered and named the numerous Jupiter moons. Not to mention, he was the very first to observe sunspots, which was rather significant, because it was believed by the church that the sun was perfect and without blemishes of any kind.
It was a very throughout speech. He said a science joke here and there to help liven up and connect with the audience. The intended audience for this speech was very smart scientific people, but also normal people, like me. In fact, the scientific language helped clue me in onto who the intended audience was. He said a joke about coming together as “reagents”, and the whole audience laughed.
The ethos of Einstein’s letter comes from the positive reputation he created among the scientific community by establishing the theory of relativity and winning the Nobel Peace Prize in Physics in 1921. These accomplishments allow Einstein to have a positive ethos, which makes his writing appear trustworthy to many people. Additionally, Einstein’s writing style contributes to his ethos, something that can be observed in the line, “However, it must be admitted that our actual knowledge of these laws is only imperfect and fragmentary, so that, actually, the belief in the existence of basic all-embracing laws in Nature also rests on a sort of faith” (Einstein 10). Within this sentence, Einstein demonstrates a scholarly understanding of both the English language and his subject, a factor that plays an important role in his reputation when one considers that Einstein would likely not be given so much respect if he often wrote poorly or spread false information. He uses pathos by writing to Wright in an incredibly polite manner, which is apparent in his send-off of, “I hope this answers your question.
Charlie Gordon was getting smarter day by day he was having rapid progression. His friends, teacher and doctor all saw that he was getting smarter day by day. An example of this is “No Charlie Dr. Nemur wants them just as they are. That 's why he let you keep them after they were photostated to see your own progress you 're coming along fast charlie” ( Keyes 230). This
the learning was too easy” (21). Thus, he is trying to achieve his full potential as an individual after being suppressed for so long. Furthermore, he wants to be recognized by the House of Scholars and join them in scientific discovery. He has always wanted to join the House of Scholars and discover the world around him, “We think there are mysteries in the sky…water...plants… We loved the science of things,” Now, being assigned as a street sweeper, he is not satisfied with the job he has been given, and Equality is looking for other creative outlets to express himself.
His family were successful wool cloth makers. Priestley proved his intelligence as a young kid by studying four advanced subjects : Metaphysics, math, logic, and philosophy. He also knew 6 languages, including greek, latin, and hebrew. I think he proved himself worthy of being a famous biologist just by learning all of this at a young kid. Most kids did not know that back then, and a lot of kids now wouldn’t know those subjects.
One of the first examples of this philosophy is when Candide discovers Pangloss contracted syphilis from Paquette. Pangloss goes on to explain that syphilis was brought to America via Christopher Columbus, and without bringing syphilis, he wouldn’t also not haven been able to bring many important goods such as chocolate. Tracing the origins of syphilis back to Columbus proved pointless, but Candide convinces himself that syphilis
Nic Paradiang Mrs. Chapman English 2 10 February 2016 Lord of the flies Argumentative Essay The greatest leaders of all time were feared.

Hitlers leading tactics are along the lines of Jacks. Hitler was a fraud and acted as if he was the nicest man alive to gain the power he needed.
Since Nemur valued intelligence very greatly, he thought that where there is no intelligence, there is no being. Charlie strongly disagreed with this because he had seen the situation from both perspectives. He knew that he was a person before the experiment. He had feelings and emotions, which in his opinion was a more apt classification of human beings than an intelligence quotient. Charlie suffered mistreatment throughout his life and when he gained intelligence, he was horrified at how the mentally handicapped were
Veidt had always been a smart child and achieved mediocre grades on purpose to keep his remarkable intelligence out of suspicion (Watchmen p.245). His plans to bring earth to a utopian state prove his intelligence and effectiveness in making strategic plans. However, he maintains a serious composure throughout by looking out windows and investing himself in deep thoughts. Veidt seems to be constantly analyzing the environment around him and almost takes on a dictatorship role when he takes it upon himself to “help the world” (Watchmen 129) independently. This
The hero that we all know today, Superman, is an excellent example of a modern hero. The comic of Superman was created during the Great Depression as a form of happiness during the very sad time. He was created by two high school students who wanted a strongman to have superhuman strength and powers, but his main enemy would be more internal rather than external. Eventually, the two students sold all of the rights to superman to Harry Donefeld for $130. Eventually, Superman blew up and was known as the amazing modern hero with incredible strength and able to accomplish anything that he had set his mind to.
Piggy shows his scientific thought process when he says “Life is scientific, that’s what it is. In a year or two when the world is over they’ll be traveling to Mars and back.” (Golding 84) I feel like I identify with Piggy because he is rarely heard. That is due to his being an outcast, but however I find I am so shy and unconfident at times, that I have a hard time getting my ideas
In 1668 the world 's first reflecting telescope was built by a well known scientist, Isaac Newton. Although Newton accomplished many things in his life he also faced many struggles growing up. Not only did Newton invent the world 's first reflecting telescope he developed the three laws of motion, discovered many new facts about gravity and had many other accomplishments throughout his lifetime. Isaac Newton is often referred to as one of the most influential scientists. He and Albert Einstein are almost equally matched contenders for this title (The Doc, 2015).
