Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published. Asma did an excellent job convincing his audience using emotion, logic, and ethics. Besides his use of logic, there is a large amount of pathos in his writing, which makes the reader perceive that he is writing to a skeptical audience. For example, describing how in modern films, such as Frankenstein, “we dramatize the rage of the monstrous creature…then scold ourselves…[for being an] intolerant society”(61). “The liberal lesson of monsters
He almost panicked, almost ran out of the room shouting ‘Marburg! We’ve got Marburg!’” (148). As seen in the text, Preston wildly portrays his story with detail, making sure that the reader knows how serious this condition is.

In the article titled “I Won’t Hire People Who Use Poor Grammar. Here’s Why,” published by Harvard Business Review on July 20, 2012, Kyle Weins claims as a business owner of two companies largely reliant on writing that good writers are more intelligent, are better at doing things completely unrelated to writing, and pay more attention to detail. Wein’s overall goal of the article is to show the connection between employees with good grammar and good work ethic. Wein’s is backing up his zero tolerance approach to bad grammar by showing these correlations. Potential employees may have prompted him to write the article because they felt his grammar test was unfair.

I wonder if Mark did this because he knew that his books would be all around the world so he wanted to look good. When really he was a very rude person and not enjoyable. If you don 't believe me remember what Mark said about killing the man? This is what he says in a book about himself. "to make my compliments to you, my fellow-teachers of the great public, and likewise to say that I am right glad to see that Doctor Holmes is still in his prime and full of generous life" (Twain 3).
People who usually are the Grammar Nazis are those educated people who academically excel in the field of Linguistic and Grammar application. They will always correct your grammatical errors and shaming you in public social media as they show off their impeccable English skills which will lead them to feel superior to you, making you feel bad and implicitly mocking your grammar skills. Another reason would be that sometimes when they browse the internet and social media, and they found a grammatical error, they cannot resist correcting someone’s mistake.

Nevertheless, Grammar Nazis can be very arrogant after correcting someone’s faulty mistake in grammar.
The writing style Roth likes to use involves lots of positivity, possibly even too much. Some critics claim that the topics could even be described as “common sense”. Critic Bashira said, “If you take to reading self-development books, a lot of his concepts--you'll realize--are hardly new.” Bashira does touch and expose Roth’s writing in a positive matter however, giving Roth the true credibility he deserves as a creative author. Bernard Roth’s story The Achievement Habit, included chapter two, “Reasons Are Bullshit”, which was a great chapter to give affection and impact on all the rhetorical appeals he ended up covering. The ways Roth expanded on the topics showed how creative and intelligent the Stanford professor truly is.

This book will change your perspective in so many areas of your life and your personal development. You will be amazed how you didn’t read this book before. I think this book is a must read book.
A descriptive essay encompass a multitude of illustration techniques that I enjoyed. A downside of a descriptive essay is the fact that is is very difficult to get a point across. I enjoy writing about things that will change peoples lives, but it can be difficult to include a message in your essay. Despite that, I enjoyed spending a lot of time in the thesaurus trying to find the right word
Clay Shirky, the author of “Does the internet make you smarter?” wrote about how ignorance has poisoned the internet with incorrect information. Not only does technology has its flaws, but so do books and novels dating back to the Protestant Reformation. Even though many people are against the internet Shirky reassures that if used correctly and appropriately, then it can become a very useful tool that can “tap our cognitive surplus”. The increased collaboration of technology is important to society for the reason that the internet is full of valuable knowledge that can be claimed very quickly and easily. Increased collaboration is absolutely a benefit.
Rose does a fantastic job in building a bridge to create trust for his targeted readers, using many examples. The ethos that really stands out from the article is when rose states, “social media simultaneously draws us nearer and distances us” (174). This can be a tremendous problem, causing people to ignore the ones closest to them, since meeting in person would be an easier task than the ones far away. Today many people deal with this situation, whether it’s family or friends, causing them to distance from each other, even though they are significantly close.

Wade shows a lot of courage throughout the story through suspense. At the beginning of the story, Wade is showing courage even if he doesn 't know it. One great example is on page 133. Wade decides to “pull up the contact card attached to Sorrento’s email and tapps the chatlink invitation icon at the bottom.” This part of courage is more stupid than courageous, but it still takes a lot of guts to talk to someone everyone hates about joining them. Wade agrees to a conversation to join a group that is trying to ruin OASIS,
