Les Brown’s “You Deserve” speech was amazing in my opinion. To start off with the feedback, his appearance was great! He had on a suit, tie and even a pocket square. It showed he took this speech seriously and prepared adequately. His enthusiasm was really what made this speech what it was. He had a smile on the entire time and made sure to emphasize his passion for this subject. His posture was good but at certain parts throughout the speech you can see him start to slouch, making it slightly less professional, but overall it was good. His expressions were very animated but not over the top, just watching his face you could tell the way he felt about each thing he spoke on, I think this was also one of the best parts of his speech.
Humans’ actions and thoughts are complex, many people spend their lives researching why people act in certain ways. In the TED Talk ‘Why we do what we do’, Tony Robbins, motivational speaker and life coach, helps people understand the reasons behind their actions in order to show how they can reach their full potential and use it to help and understand others. The rhetorical and speaking strategies used in his speech aided him in his effort to reach his audience. The ethos and pathos were very strong and bolstered his message, but his attempt at being logical did not improve the quality of his speech, and affected the extent his audience will take his message to heart.

Throughout the novel Flight, written by Alexie Sherman, the protagonist, notably known as “Zits,” displays an obscene amount of vulgar language. The use of his patois that is now commonly used amongst the vast majority of teens around the world is one worth explaining. To start, vulgar language is essentially looked down upon because of how profane and “unnecessary” it is. The use of this language in everyday life, not only within this novel, is one that is used to convey emotion, as it is much easier to swear and curse than it is to convey your emotions with “proper” language.
In the novel, Jasper Jones, Craig Silvey used a vast range of language and textual features including Symbolism, Allusion, Connotation, Similes and word choice. This is done to construct the character of Charlie as someone that opposes the social norms in the town and supports his close friend, Jasper who is judged and victimised by his race and family history. The town’s people of Corrigan all follow the same path or social norms, that were apparent in the 1960’s and what teenagers should learn, is that you should not let your peers dictate your beliefs and values, making your own choices, like Charlie.

My delivery had its highlights and its lowlights. My volume was good and I kept eye contact for a majority of the speech, only slipping up as a transitioned between notecards. However, I could hear my voice shake throughout the project as well. That made the speech seem a little less

Wendell Phillips speech was delivered during a time before equality was in existence. As people’s race played a crucial factor in society. During 1861 when the Civil War was in its beginning stages the Northerners were debating weather to allow African Americans to serve in the military. As that made sense to some since the whole point of the civil war was to abolish slavery in the South and obviously many African Americans wanted to fight for that ending goal, but others debated that using African Americans could put their army in jeopardy as they had no experience. Event though this was a conflict between abolitionist people who were strongly for abolishing slavery in the United States some Northerners were still hesitant in trusting Blacks as there was still racism. During the speech, Philips does a significant job using several strategies such as analogies, comparisons,

Making sure that you have constant eye contact with the audience will help sound you more credible. Most importantly making sure that the topic that you have chosen makes sense to what you are doing.

I esspecially liked how you tied Russian forces and groups into the natural adaptaion process and how you used the insurgancy in Iraq to explain the directed adaptaion process. You have clearly put a lot of thought combined with personal expireance into your post. Showing the lineage of how the insurgants started with one set of TTP's and adapted to where they are now was a perfect example of demonstraing the directed process. It show how we combated thier use of IED's with up-armored vehicles and how they ultimately refined their skills using outside forces. This really showed not only a good hybrid threat, but how easily our enemies can adapt to our growing
