There was no evidence of bias however the article raises a flare of hope to the interested parties in investing in unraveling Oak Island mystery. The article is both informative and entertaining to the readers. It talks about normal people spending their hard earned money and passionately bearing the struggle to unravel the Oak Island mystery. It is a good read however; there are many places in the story that doesn’t make sense. Just as Captain Kidd and other pirate stories are legends, there is no relevant evidence to prove that the original story of 1795 is true.
Summary and Response to "Benjamin Franklin, the Inveterate (and Crafty) Public Instructor" Introduction In Patrick Sullivan’s Benjamin Franklin, the Inveterate (and Crafty) Public Instructor, Sullivan states there are two types of readers. states that there are two types of readers of Benjamin Franklin’s The Way to Wealth; the “less sophisticated readers” who are presented with a great collection of proverbial advice, and the “more sophisticated readers” who are challenged to think independently. I must admit when reading The Way to Wealth the first time I was the less sophisticated reader, seeing it as merely a collection of practical proverbs, but after reading Sullivan’s essay I see how much more Franklin meant for his writing to be. This “Farwell Address” from Franklin to his faithful readers after 25 years of writing Almanacs as Poor Richard was meant to celebrate the legacy, but more importantly challenge and “critique…the phenomenon which Franklin had created” (248) with his proverbial sayings. Summary Patrick Sullivan starts out his article
His intake form described having manic tendencies in the past, though there was not enough information there to really get to the core reason for them. I was able to inquire more relevant details about having weekly “ups and downs” that led to these tendencies, furthering my ability to potentially correctly diagnosis him. Additionally, I found that clients usually do not freely offer up tons of information during an intake without being prompted, thus direct questions were my best approach. Asking open-ended questions whenever taking a direct approach was a great technique that allowed for the client to have long and elaborate
They were happy to adopt the new theories, incorporating the new ideals regarding behaviours and probabilities, and although they didn’t necessarily believe that everyone was constantly making the right decisions, they simply assumed that, in a democracy, rational behaviour would be more frequently dominant. Due to this general acceptance by economists, and the fact that they seemed to leave things untouched, the field was left wide open for research. Enter the psychologists. Following the release of Ward Edwards’ 1954 article, titled “The Theory of Decision Making”, and some further research on the subject, he concluded that people, although not precisely rational under the guidelines of decision analysis, were close enough most of the time for most
Montaigne’s essays are very detailed and very intriguing, even though he is the “creator” of essays. Once you get into the essays its hard to put them down and that’s how most of modern day essays are intended on being. The titles like “On the cannibals”, “On the Custom of Wearing Clothes”, and “That it is Folly to Measure Truth and Error by our own Capacity”, are very hard to follow. Looking at these you may not be very interested, but if you took the chance to read them, you’d understand that in his era, people lived a fairly standard life. These people were called savages and did things people today would be ashamed of.
The sender is George Saunders and the receivers are the graduates. The goal of the speech, is to not only make the students understand that being a good person is the most important thing you can do, but also to motivate them to actually live their lives according to this. Saunders ethos is good. The fact that he is a professor is of course important, but in this case, it does not play as big of a role as it usually would. This is not an academic text full of facts that has to be correct but a more emotionally driven text.
These two perspectives give us a firsthand example of someone whom both believed in Orientalism and who spread it to many who would take their word as fact. Said also used many of their thoughts to back up his claims, so it is necessary to include them in the summary to help provide a sense of what the structure of Said’s writing is like as well as what sources he used. I chose to leave out a lot of ideas from the last pages of the text. I found that these pages provided less overarching concepts and less main ideas. The last pages tended to delve more deeply into real life examples, and one does not need them to understand the major keys to Orientalism.
Together, the two debates profound sufficient information, to catch their audience attention, but only one debate had the enough statistics to prove it’s point. Robert Applebaum debate was more effective than Justin Wolfers, because of the language, evidence, and emotion.

(Russell 2014) Conclusion: Despite controversy Milgram’s experiment was ground breaking. It remains relevant today and is frequently cited in demonstrating the perils of obedience. Milgram himself concluded how easily ordinary people ‘can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority". (Milgram 1974) As this report has highlighted the research is not without controversy with many questioning to what extent Milgram’s experiment is true to real life and has been criticized for not highlighting further situational variables in determining obedience to authority.
