Metagrobolized Morals J.J Watt was awarded the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for raising 37 million dollars for Hurricane Harvey relief. Periodically I receive mail from Operation Smile asking for donations. Although Watt’s award is considered a great honor by society, and donating to charities is very common today, Ayn Rand would disagree with all this. In the excerpts from The Virtue of Selfishness and For the New Intellectual, and in her novel Anthem, Rand lays out her morals. In Anthem Equality’s view of morality strongly coincides with Ayn Rand’s views in the excerpts from her other writings, but is very different from the institutions, practices and officials from the society in which he lives.
I’ve heard it said that it usually takes about one month for every three that you were together, but that’s not always the case. In the popular movie “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” it only took Peter Bretter one month, a trip to Hawaii, and a spontaneous hotel desk assistant to get over his newly disbanded 5-year relationship with the popular Television star, Sarah Marshall. Forgetting Sarah Marshall was a romcom, or romantic comedy, that came out in 2008. This “chick flick” in my opinion is quite possibly the best breakup film of all time. I personally watch it after ever failed attempt at human companionship to boost my confidence in high hopes that life after a breakup will get better.
President Nixon is one of the most famous Presidents in American history for being the first one to resign from office. While Nixon is famous for doing such an unthinkable act, he is also the one that gave one of the best and most well known speeches in political history, The Checkers Speech. The speech was given by (Senator at the time) President Nixon when he was running for Vice President on General Eisenhower’s Presidential ticket. A newspaper, the New York Post, had a front page with the headline "Secret Rich Men's Trust Fund Keeps Nixon in Style Far Beyond His Salary"; the article alleged that people were donating to a secret fund that Nixon had for his personal benefit in trade for political favors. This scandal caused many Americans and Republican politicians to push Eisenhower to remove Nixon as his running mate and to question Nixon’s integrity.
This was a disturbing moment in our history that shook the very foundation of America. This is the first terrorist attack that we have experienced in the 21st century. President Bush spoke out to the American people to empower and soothe them in a vulnerable time. President Bush reassures citizens and the victim’s families that America and its people are not only strong but are safe and will rise up again. Bush effectively executes his 9/11 speech and uses rhetorical devices to catch the citizens attention, calm the America people and unite them together again.
Statistics typically grab an audiences or readers attention. In “March to Conquer Cancer” Vice President Gore states the statistic “In America today, more than 40 percent of us will be diagnosed with cancer, and 20 percent of us will die from it” (Gore). Vice President Gore uses this statistic in his speech without giving any proof of where it actually came from. Of course being the Vice President he probably knows the best scientist in the world, but does anyone know that for fact. Stating a statistic in a speech about cancer needs to citied because what if people do not believe the statistic.
Joy practices between 2-3 hours a day, 5-7 times a week, which doesn’t include games. They have to pay for everything themselves: travel, camps and college. “The cheerleaders at CU are one of the most dedicated athletes and need to be rewarded.” Says Joy Barber
Why is there still racial inequality? Racial inequality still exists even after Rosa Parks, Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, Malcolm X, and Nelson Mandela tried to stop it. Most African Americans and Hispanics expect for inequality to stop. Because they are most likely to be killed by whites, have no good education, unemployment, incarceration, no good health, and aren't paid that much money. Racial inequality has been such a huge problem that even eight important people tried to stop it.
Do you remember those commercials on television that claimed you could feed a starving child in Africa for just 50 cents a day? In Robert Paarlberg's article "Attention Whole Food's Shoppers" he reminds readers that not everyone in the world is as fortunate as those who live in developed countries and that it seems those living in more prosperous nations have become more apathetic towards the issue of hunger and food production in less developed countries. His use of pathos and ethos make readers feel more connected to the issue, as well as his use of logos to educate the reader while offering practical solutions to the issue ultimately make his argument effective. The article begins with Paarlberg talking about how people living in western
Soldiers were dying, and they continued to be sent over to fight. The war itself provided a major wave of anti-war rhetoric that is still prominent today. The anti-war rhetoric was pushed through politicians, celebrities, concerts, protests, average citizens of different economic classes, but most importantly through song. “In the 1960s, several now-influential artists appealed to the disaffected counterculture’s emphasis on peace and love, especially with the sliding approval rates of the Vietnam War. As public approval of the Vietnam War dwindled in the latter half of the 1960s, popular music artists began to record songs that reflected this disapproval and ultimately became a new method of protest (Hopkins).” Not to mention, “not only has music been a direct means of anti-war protest, but the culture of peace and love, seen especially in the Woodstock festival, has also pervaded the minds of the public” (Hopkins).
Of those deaths, the majority occurred on the African continent, with some 1.5 million African fatalities attributed to disease in the same year. Africa has suffered from the devastation of HIV/AIDS for decades and attempts at containing and eradicating the disease have been many in number and unsuccessful; there are however groups within African society that are often ignored by modern AIDS prevention strategies. African women and men who have sex with men are at a increased risk of contracting HIV, due to their unequal social, political and economic standing, fail to be reached by conventional intervention
Dr. Daniel Ivankovich wants to reach out to the people who cannot seek medical attention since they do not have money to pay for it. He thinks it is unfair for someone’s health to continuously worsen, only because they are not insured. When Ivankovich became aware of this issue, he opened his own clinic and promised to help people whether or not they were able to pay for it. Dr. Ivankovich has performed over 600 surgeries and helped more than 100,000 people during his career as a surgeon. He “knows he can’t fix everybody” he said, “but my goal is to be the battering ram to help break down the barriers to get these patients the care and the resources they need" (Ivankovich).
Best friends Chris, Zack, Sean, and Ryan had wanted to get a better understanding of poverty and privilege so they decided to voyage to the poverty ridden village of Peña Blanca. They had also made a system that would simulate the uncertainty of income to truly get the full experience. They would fill a hat with numbers ranging from zero to nine, and they would draw from the hat each day. The number they received would be the amount of money they would limit themselves to. These four college students struggled with finances, disease, and the emotional toll that comes along with an experience like
Yet in the United States, 40% of food goes to waste,”(1). Robert Lee learned how big the problem of wasting food was in college when he joined a group called Two Birds, One Stone. Americans are struggling with food yet 40% of food is getting wasted. He is regarded as a hero by many people because he helps decrease food waste and trim down the amount of hunger. He started an organization to help him with this, but even before starting an organization, he helped reduce food waste and lessen hunger.
With limited sources of assistance, our veterans depend on volunteers, donations and funding from outside the US Federal Government. 3-c. A substantial amount of donors have halted their contributions to WWP, awaiting the results of the current audit. Though understandable, the true victims are and will be the disabled veterans. The outcome uncertainty, among the employees, contributors and disabled veterans, will hinder upcoming programs and assistance funds. Parents of two disabled war veterans, Fred and Dianne Kane, have donated $325,000 to WWP, over the past 5 years, through their personal charity, Tee-off for a Cause.
