When Dr. Smiley’s car was repaired he wanted to leave the valley but could not because he loved the valley do he built the adobe house. Dr. Smiley also worked in the railroad company like most people in the valley but, unlike other folk he was rich. He also built the house with a basement to stay in when the desert became hot. The tour starts out with the Cahuilla Indians baskets, history, and then things that the Indians used for food and to hunt food. Then we moved to the second room filled with water saving projects and what type of fruit grows best here in the valley like oranges and dates.
Another example, is a chapter called “First Pen”. This short story is literally about the time when Ralph’s father bought him a pen. With the pen, he wrote stories on Sundays, and even though this seems pointless, it was important to Ralph because he remembered this memory. These are two examples of the many stories that make up Ralph’s
Gladwell, using this writing technique, builds a common belief up, then proceeds to knock it down; some argue if this method is effective.Gladwell incorporates the straw man theory into most of his essays; including “The Ketchup Conundrum” and “Something Borrowed.” To begin, "The Ketchup Conundrum" presents the question, "Why is there only one specific type of ketchup, yet many variations of other condiments?" In this article it is explained how Jim Wigeon, a ketchup connoisseur and entrepreneur, conducted research and came to the conclusion that most people continued to buy the same brand because they “had been eating bad ketchup their whole life!” (Gladwell 35) The resolution is simple, he said, create a better ketchup, just like the way he had created a better mustard. This conversation alone, begins the method of straw man. Malcolm Gladwell uses this same method once again in
Renowned for his diaries as well as his studies on education, Leonard Covello – Americanization changed his surname by removing the ‘i’ to make it easier to pronounce – ably recounted through the eyes of an Italian migrant child, cultural and social differences and the process of integration into the New World. Leonard attended a school established by a Protestant philanthropic association. The school was known as the ‘Soup School’ because at noon it provided a meal, which was one of the main reasons why it was chosen by immigrants for their children. The prime purpose of the school was the Americanization of new immigrants through the intensive teaching of English, hygiene, discipline, and love and respect for the new homeland. In his autobiography, Leonardo Coviello describes how at the Soup School he first encountered the abundance of food in America; a highly significant experience for an immigrant of the late 1800s and early 1900s who came from extreme poverty and severe shortages of foodstuffs.
The Bean Sprouts project was simple. We were each assigned to a red pot full of mud and a package of seeds to pour on top. If we took good care of the soil with enough sunlight and water, the bean sprout would grow well. When our science teacher jokingly stated that successful growth of bean sprouts indirectly portrayed our affectionate and caring character, all
This quote exhibits that they made a fire to keep them warm and then later made another fire to signal airplanes passing over the island with the smoke. This survival skill was a great idea because Ralph used Piggy’s glasses to create the fire. In chapter 4 of Lord of the Flies Jack is very determined to
His rearrangement of sentence structure allows his poems, especially “anyone lived in a pretty how town”, to have alternate interpretations. Besides Cummings’s exquisite usage of hyplage, he uses many other poetry devices to richen his poems and incorporate hidden meanings. Cummings’s “anyone lived in a pretty how town” begins by describing a man named “anyone”. Cummings paints anyone as a happy, content man. He states, “He sang his didn’t and danced his did”(Cummings 4).
Words such as, “suicide” and “murder” grab the attention of the viewer. “Smoking isn’t just suicide. It murders.” is also the only text in the entire ad besides the organization that created the ad. This prevents the viewer from getting lost in other text and not focusing on what is important. In the 1950s ad, the text reads, “Gee, Dad, you always get the best of everything…even Marlboro!”.

I found Pollan 's book to be very informative and enjoyable to read. I particularly liked the fact that I could associate Pollan’s cultural, political and economic views to the topics we covered in class. In order to complete this assignment, I selected Part 1 of the book "Industrial Food" because I was particularly captivated by the secrets of corn and also because I believed that this section sincerely disclosed the reality behind High-Fructose Corn Syrup (a major participant in the development of obesity). Not only that but, the fact that corn is found in almost every product in our pantry, it’s a little frightening. To begin with, Pollan mentions that it has become more profitable for companies to use high-fructose corn syrup in their soft
