In To Kill a Mockingbird, topics like stereotypes and inequality are mentioned in Atticus Finch’s Closing Argument. Both King and Finch create a persuasive case to overcome racism through the use of logos, ethos, and pathos. One of the first things that King and Finch use to increase the effectiveness of their speeches is logical appeals, or logos. Logos is valuable. They are facts, so they are not debatable.
There are a lot of arguments for and against residential demand charges. Matt Lehrman did a very good job of providing and evidence based article that was both educational and also persuasive. He did a very good job of using logos and ethos to help his argument. Furthermore, he avoided fallacies which made his argument and logic even more solid. He writes his article beautifully and it reaches his target audience with language that is technical enough to explain his argument while not being overly complicated and easy to
The author’s tone in this quote is violent and bitter. Eric saying that he “hated almost everyone “, would support the reader’s thinking towards what kind of person Eric is, and what Eric is thinking. Eric’s use of language almost immediately gives the reader a hint of what he is capable of, not in the sense that he would literally “rip is head off and eat it” but in the sense that he is capable of doing bad things. Given the fact that people throughout the United States have already heard of the mass shooting in Columbine, the reader would promptly identify Eric as the killer and they would be right. The author’s purpose could be to keep the reader thinking: who is the killer?
In my opinion, the positive aspect of this research is that the author gained the trust of the gang members, while at the same time, the negative aspect of it, is that he had to witness the illegal activities which he (presumably) could or did not report. In know that researchers have certain ethical/responsibility to uphold, however, in this scenario, I would think that the author’s life would be in danger if he reports these illegal activities that he’s
Mike Haynie takes a stand on how veterans are portrayed to the public through the media. Being a veteran himself, he is well aware of how the media’s reports are focused on displaying the negative side of veterans. Cases like Itzcoatl Ocampo’s, paint veterans to the public as being violent. Awareness on this issue has been raised before. In 1999, President Bill Clinton held a conference to shed light on mental illness and the stigma that surrounds it.
In this essay, Cacicedo analyzes how trauma is the reasoning behind the plot of ending of Catch-22. The article was overall effective in showing us that we are all “guest observers of our own existences.” (367) The argument’s effectiveness is greatly due to how decisive Cacicedo is when making his assertions. Rather than saying that the outcome might have occured due to trauma, Cacicedo makes sure to make a definite point of the argument using words like “precisely” (359) and “truly.” (359) By bringing in experts on the subject, Cacicedo merely stipended the effectiveness of his argument. He brought in such people as David Seed in order to use their arguments to further prove that he is correct. Like all other effective articles, Cacicedo made
Mittelberg’s speech was effective in its argument against abortion. He was able to achieve this by filling his speech with emotion and coupling these emotions with logical arguments. His hook about common misconceptions society accepts as truths, and relating it to his topic about abortion was fluid and humorous. Additionally, his use of citing outside sources helped build his argument but did not overpower the audience. By breaking his speech into three myths about abortion, Mittelberg was able to state, and then proceed to refute these myths in a very structured way.
Bingley’s inferior look at Jane and her family. Nonetheless, Jane continues to think good of Miss. Bingley and trusts what her sentiments tell her instead of using her rationality. Austen makes it apparent that this choice doesn’t serve Jane’s best interest and makes her blind of the real truth. Additionally, another example is Jane’s ignorance to the fact that Miss.
IC on the Record is a good start, but it is mostly reactive, providing context to programs that Snowden had already leaked. The intelligence community should continue to release as much as it possibly can about surveillance programs without compromising sources and methods—even if they have not been leaked. Given Snowden’s widespread public acclaim, coming clean about such controversial intelligence programs is not just good government, but also provides the surest way to preserve vital intelligence capabilities. With greater transparency, intelligence agencies can stay one step ahead of future leakers and earn back the trust of a skeptical public. The United States should also pivot from
In my opinion, the article was somewhat entertaining and interesting for me because, I’m interested in knowing more about languages especially languages that are endangering. However, the points that made me dislike the article somewhat is that she didn’t support her ideas clearly and because she didn’t have adequate ideas she started repeating some
