The either/or fallacy is explained as two choices that are presented as if they are the only two choices and there are no other options or anything in-between (401). The authors describe the false analogy fallacy as an argument that takes advantage of similarities between entities to provide a basis for the inference that these entities might also share some other property (401). Latin is used to title another logical fallacy, Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc, meaning "After this, therefore, because of this. " This is a belief that because event B happened after event
For example, a comparison between journalism and early newspapers to present day newspapers would yield less variance in the language or style, depicting the need for communication to be “very much in a present which keeps itself in equilibrium or homeostasis by sloughing off memories which no longer have present relevance” (Ong 46). The Bible can transcend time, and newer versions use writing to elicit emotional responses. A newspaper does not. A newspaper’s job is to act as an informative source for the present. Information is based on prominence and is only in the paper for as long as it’s relevant.

When translating a foreign piece of text, words may be interpreted differently. For example, the differences between the William Aaltonen and Joachim Neugroschel translations of The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka are noticeable yet relatively minor. The first dissimilarity is when William Aaltonen uses “troubled” to describe a dream that Gregor Samsa, the main character, had, while in the Joachim Neugroschel translation, he uses “agitated”. Both words mean quite differential things. “Agitated” seems more severe and is sharp, whereas “troubled” is softer and more intellectually inconveniencing.

And he was asking his mother why he couldn’t go but that’s the only school he wanted to go to. The reason I say this challenged my thinking is because it limit kids when they same they can’t go to this school or that’s school. Kids want to go to school they are happy at and if the little boy went to school in his district he wouldn’t be successful. Because he wouldn’t have the drive to go every day to be successful.
I walked out the bus and I started walking around I met this girl her name was Grace. I walked up to her and she was playing this game with her older brother and she saw me and ran up and gave me the biggest hug ever. She told me her name and I then started a conversation with her.

I believe that the reason it took my sister and I so long to realize that we were in fact more in charge of Poppie than he was of us is because of how natural it seemed to see my Nonnie lifting Poppie into bed at night, or cutting his food for him. Eventually my childhood ignorance was illuminated in the same dreaded space where I learned everything else that grown ups viewed as “important”, school. Only a few weeks after I had begun 2nd grade, I was confronted with the fact that not all grandpa’s were in wheelchairs and curious as to why my friends thought it was so freakish. Later, bristling with anticipation from the weight of my newfound knowledge, I haughtily demanded that my mom explain to me why Poppie was so different.
In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, readers get a good look at how the future was viewed in the past. In the 1950’s through the 1990’s, it was seen as futuristic and exciting, and even stunning, to be able to see moving pictures dancing around as if they were alive; yet now we see it as normal and maybe even old. In the past, technology seemed to be frightening as we feared it would become too much for us to handle; yet now we still strive for newer technologies as new systems are being invented or modified daily. Even though there are so many contrasts between our current society and Ray Bradbury’s envisioned society, there are still some clear similarities.
When visiting the contemporary collection at Johnson Museum, I couldn’t help but notice a piece painted on a shinny, reflective surface. It is the work of an Italian artist, Michelangelo Pistoletto, called Parade #3 (figure 1). The two figures here are carrying a banner and marching forward. In fact, this is a typical example of his iconic Quadri Specchianti, or mirror paintings, which brought him international acknowledgement. Although Pistoletto also makes sculpture, land art, and staged performance, these mirror paintings remain his largest body of work across his career.
