The average American is able to see much more of America because of their automobile. Americans can go on road trips anywhere they want without boarding a train or bus. Carol Domblewski states that “Tourism became possible for more people, as a car allowed anyone to travel far away from home and in any direction a road led.” As long as there is a road citizens can travel to amusement parks, theatres, and circuses. There is never the limit of distance. In addition, citizens can also visit nearby parks, movie theatres, and shopping malls without having to get on a bike or walk.
Railroads allow for the movement of goods and people conveniently and quickly with few delays as compared to other modes of transportation. Cars and planes did not exist in the late 19th century and trains were astronomically important for the success of cities in the United States. While other forms of transportation fill the void that existed in the past, the efficiency of those modes of transport will keep declining over time as more cars hit the road and planes take off. Trains can be indefinitely expanded since it does not have to share its space with other vehicles. Railroads have paved the way for industrial America and will continue to as long as people and goods need to be
There is a bigger impact of graphic design on society today. There is more to say in an ad or magazine if we tend to look just beyond the logo itself. She give us a few examples such as “Walt Disney” and the “Starbucks” logos which are known nationally across the world. These design are easy to identify also very common to us, and then shows us not very common ones such as “mitsubishi” which is a type of car and then “WRV” which is wave riding vehicles which are tougher to spot out. Graphic design is a skills and art of combining texts and pictures as advertisements, magazine or books, but there is actually little fun design to it to this.
The way Steinbeck describes isolation in the novel of Mice and Men can be compared to today’s society. Just because some people are different and live a different lifestyle does not make them bad people. Being open to different cultures, races and ethnicities opens door to learning more about others. That freedom was not given during the time of John Steinbeck but luckily we live in an era where many opportunities have been given not caring about what a person looks like, how they live or how they should be designed to be, everyone is
Moreover, you feel more relaxed riding a car than a bus. Since buses stops and seats can be harmful, you will be forced to stand on your whole trip while you can freely set and relax in your healthy vehicle. Therefore, we should ride cars more often. Public transportation is not "cure-all solution" as Lester Detroit claims. However, It is a cause for some issues.
Lines 60-62 say, “‘You did what?” they’ll ask. “Yes,” we’ll say, “it’s true. We actually looked out the car window.” That quote implies that people now don’t peek out the window and absorb nature as much as they should. Nowadays, phones and tablets consume our attention to have a car ride be more “bearable.” Also, lines 62-64 say “In our useful boredom, we used to draw
Everybody had seen it.”(63) Not only had Nick admired the car but everyone had admired Gatsby’s car. At the same time as people were coming to his parties and never even laying eyes on the host, they noticed car. This shows how materialistic the characters really are, that they care more about Gatsby’s possessions than Gatsby himself. But it is not only his car that is used to show materialism. It is Tom’s comments about car which proves his materialistic nature when he sees the car crash.
People who do not read are less focused and often fill their days with readily made media like smart phones, television, movies, and video games. These people do not think, expand their minds, or act for themselves. These non-readers consume what is fed to them through the media and nothing else. They do not think on their own or, share their ideas because they have not expanded their minds to think and imagine things on their own. This type of submissive, passive behavior is no good for a democratic society (Gioia 423).
The concept of humanism uses the manipulation of the emotions of people to make them think in a certain way; a way that triggers a more humanistic thought process. The ad creators most likely did not use the other appeals such as elitist, populist, shock-producing, fear-producing, or straight-talk because the goal of this advertisement aimed at depicting Mazda as a company that strives to be family oriented and focused on improving lives everyday experiences to make them above average and to present themselves as a company that genuinely cares about the happiness and well-being of their customers. The other strategies fail at creating a sense of family and human values. In conclusion, the creators of the advertisement “Driving Matters: A Driver’s Life” use Solomon’s strategy of humanism to present themselves as being a family-oriented company that plans to show people how important driving and having a vehicle is to fulfilling the desires people have to create a family, find love, and be happy while caring for one
Though there are some reckless drivers, I trust my life while driving with those in their car than I trust other friends driving because they have experience in driving, they’re not distracted because they mostly drive standard cars which involves keeping your hands and feet bust with the steering wheel, the pedals and the stick shift. There is no time for being distracted on their phones for these drivers. Being a car enthusiast is fun and never gets old. Car enthusiasts have a bad reputation for being reckless drivers and I don’t blame them. Having a fast car is fun, but with great power, comes great responsibility.
I agree that when we plan to go to a store, we just feel the rush to come in without caring about the merchandise displayed by the doors. We even sometimes keep heads down looking as we walk or looking at our cellphones while we talk to our friends or family. I honestly do not pay attention to the details placed on windows to the side or by the door. We are used to going forward, not sideways. This makes it difficult to us, customers, to see the displayed products and signs.
By having a safe and easy method of transportation roads and highways were built all over America. With the roads and highways built this results in many people buying cars because now they do not have to worry about their car taking damages from nature. For these cars built, Ford used the assembly line. Workers stood in place and assembled the parts as they went down a conveyor belt(Boyer 689). The people can now just drive their cars safely along the road only having to worry about other drivers.
You would wake up, do what you were assigned to do that day, or what you may do that night, and then repeat. As I mentioned earlier, soldiers were not completely separated from the outside world, thanks to the use of trains, steamboats, and other means of transportation. The fact that you were able to contact others was a good way to help the mental health of a soldier, maybe the comfort of a loved one or maybe a conversation from other residents or friends. However, trains were not around for the confederate side because they did not have lots of railroad lines compared to the north, and also as a fun fact they had a different gauge, which was shorter than the standard gauge (4’ 8”). I also mentioned that one of the different jobs you can take as a civil war soldier, was what was known as “Guard Duty”.
In this era, with technology as a part of everyday life, it has become difficult to use a simple Public Service Announcement (PSA) as a way to reduce distracted drivers. This is due, for the most part, to the developed habit of assuming. People believe, since it’s seen in many shows and commercials, that those ‘bad things’ that come as a result of distracted driving are not likely to occur to them. People want to prove that they are able to do multiple tasks at once and every PSA would be a challenge so to speak, to show they are above average at multitasking. Those such assumptions and aspirations to prove oneself have resulted in such growing rates.
He was a super nice guy and we talked about how he and my friend Solomon got judged for things that are out of our control. Besides having such a great conversation I realized for the first time that I was in a place where English wasn’t the native language, no idea what the culture was, and where I was the minority. That moment changed how I looked at all of the different kinds of people in the world. It wasn’t like I thought negatively towards people before, but I really didn’t understand what it was like to be different. No one should ever have to feel unsafe or uncomfortable riding the bus or traveling to a city alone.
