The book is basically Mr. O’Connell’s recollection of being diagnosed pre-diabetic, his journey to find more information on treatment and how effective it is, and Mr. O’Connell’s father passing away from not taking care of his diabetes. Before getting into the takeaways from the book we need some definitions and to shed some perspective on how dire the diabetes problem is. So, what is diabetes? The short answer is it’s when your blood glucose or sugar is too high. How it works is when you eat food your body breaks it down into sugars that enter your bloodstream to be distributed throughout your body for energy, when this happens your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin to transport those sugars to the
To gain their support, the public image of women had to be changed. More propaganda was produced, encouraging women to enter the workforce as a way to continue the progression of the United States as their men went off to fight. Propaganda targeted towards women usually consisted of an emotional tone rather than an authoritative one. “To mobilize women… government propaganda needed… central theme… concentrated on patriotism and emotional appeals” (Mathis). It was known by the government that the best way to persuade women into aiding the war effort was to appeal to their emotions; women were angry that their loved ones were forced to go off to war to partake in a fight that was believed America had no need to be in.
Men and women are born on Earth in the same fashion. However, according to the article “10 Reasons Women Need Equal Pay, and are Still Fighting for it” by Meghan Werft, women do not receive pay in the same fashion as their male counterparts. This article details how a pay deficit exists between men and women who work duplicate jobs, and the reasons for which women deserve equal pay to their male coworkers. The article also describes how those reasons can benefit economies around the world. Using the literary appeal of logos, the rhetorical device of exposition, and syntactic strategies to establish the tone, Meghan Werft convinces her audience that a wage gap between men and women exists, and that the action of granting equitable pay can also benefit global and local economies.
Amazon did this by using celebrities such as Gordon Ramsey, Rebel Wilson, Cardi B and Anthony Hopkins. By using these people, the audience says to themselves “if they use Alexa, I should use Alexa too”. All these celebrities are very different and can appeal to many kinds of audiences young and old and also those with different interests such as movies, music or cooking. In the end of the commercial Alexa says “thanks guys but I'll take it from here” this hints that Alexa can do more and is more important than well known celebrities. These words were meant to display the immense capabilities that Alexa has and persuade the audience that she can do better than their favorite stars.
Thanks to the expansion of smartphones and new generations of SIMs, billions of people are using the internet and social media in their everyday life. Social medias like YouTube benefit the hunger of people to watch videos or scrolling newsfeeds. These companies by putting advertisement between the public content make money however many of these advertisements contain gender based stereotypes, particularly about the work division. For example, in an Iranian social media named “Apparat”, there are advertisements in which women are using detergents to wash dishes or discussing the quality of olive oil for cooking or baby-sitting while men are watching TV. Also people themselves easily can comment the post of celebrities in Facebook or Instagram and there is no prohibition on hate speech.
Fat acceptance is a radical concept that most Americans shy away from discussing. This is not the case with Hillel Schwartz’s essay “Fat and Happy?” from his book Never Satisfied. Schwartz discusses the way fat people are treated by society and what he believes life would be like if we lived in a Fat Society rather than the current Skinny World we live in. In his article it seems that Schwartz’s goal is to capture the attention of as many different audiences as possible by using sarcasm and many different sides to his argument that fat acceptance should be an important value in society. While Schwartz tries to connect to as many different audience members as possible with a dry and popular sense of humor by implementing a sarcastic tone, his
He warns that because of that value, there’s going to be a moment when humans will kill each other because of technology: this can be seen when there is “a sound of thunder”(Bradbury 10) from the gun pointed to Eckels. Bradbury wants the readers to think differently than everyone else who are increasing technology’s value. Bradbury lets the readers think which one is higher: humans’ value or technology’s value. Moreover, he makes the humans realize that humans should increase their value to face technology. For example, maintaining good relationships, spending some time without
This lead to very masculine bodies for the men and thin bodies for women. Later on the beauty ideal gets more influenced by the political behavior in a country. In the renaissance people started to revolt against the religious government and did not pay any attention to their bodies anymore. And a lot later in the 1930s and 1940s politicians as Hitler choose a beauty ideal. In addition to that, it is a fact that economics always play a large role in finding a beauty ideal.
In 1942, Dönitz had surprised the British by stating over the radio waves that Germany would be increased casualties. This had startled the British as most military leaders would never have publicly admitted that they were going to lose more men in the near future as it would decrease confidence in the German population and would signal to the Allies that Germany is in fact acknowledging that they knew that they were losing. However, this announcement helped balance the German people’s emotions after they have been bombarded with news of how well the German military was doing. However, this was more of a precursor to Germany further increasing the size of their U-boat fleet. As the Allies had repositioned their escorts to better support convoys in the west ,the Germans had increased their submarine fleet to over 300 U-boats produced, with 140 that were fully operational and 20 commissioned per month.
By putting ads in magazines to promote healthy weight and self worth, readers are more aware of these unattainable ideals. Though opposers may add that even if people take away commenting on media sites there will still be pictures provoking unrealistic body types. But, though this may be true, not allowing people's negative input on these pictures will be beneficial to boost ones’ confidence. As stated by Kevin Wallsten, a Berkeley graduate focusing on political science says: “anonymous comments are assumed to exert a strong influence over Internet users. The number of effects attributed to anonymous comments is long and varied.
Pugh claims that ‘People had simply changed their minds in the sense that male prejudice against women had melted in face of revelations about their capabilities during wartime and their contribution to war effort’. Pugh’s view has somewhat strong validity because women were able to move away from stereotypical roles as they took on male jobs and endured the horrible work conditions and pay - this helped support their country showing patriotism and shifting society’s mindset. This can be supported as on factories and farms it was usually calculated that it would need three women to do the work of two men. Statistics support this claim as the number of women employed was between 1-2 million, this was impacted by the help of the Women’s War Register providing employment. However, not all views were changed as some employers made agreements with unions promising to protect skilled men’s jobs after the war; portraying traditional views of women were still present - they were still expected of maintaining their ‘wife and mother’ role.
America becomes the ally of the weak and fights for social justice, not solely for the interests of corporations. This future can be possible with some hard work and the motivation to change. However, if we continue the current drone program, this cycle of hatred and unnecessary death will only be sustained. When will our government decide that drones can be used on her own citizens? In conclusion, The United States must abolish the current weaponized drone program because drone strikes kill large numbers of civilians, they create more terrorists than they kill, and they are ultimately ineffective at their job.
