Jacobs uses ethos and logos to prove the successfulness of the Dual Enrollment Program.

Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.

The United States is made up of some of the most diverse and interesting cultures in the world. Jamila Lyiscott proves this by showing her different dialects and how they are all equally important. Lyiscott believes that the way she speaks towards her parents, towards her friends, and towards her colleagues are all one in the same. Throughout the entirety of her speech, Lyiscott changes up her vocal patterns and dialects so that the audience can understand first hand what each of these dialects are. When she talks about her father, Lyiscott uses her native tongue, when she talks to her fellow neighbors and close friends she switches it up to a more urbanized dialect, and when she is in school she masks the other two dialects with a professional sounding language.

This week I read an article about how women transition into parenthood and how between cultures, birthing systems are beginning to change under the influence of Western medicine. I am going to talk about the cross-cultural comparison of birthing systems, the ecology of birth, and the use of medication in childbirth. Childbirth is a physiological and cultural transaction. Giving birth and the postpartum period after birth are two moments where the mother and child are most vulnerable to ritual danger to the whole family and or community.
The arrival of a new baby, especially the first always marks a new beginning for a mother. It comes with a lot of challenges more so if the mother is less knowledgeable about baby care. Take such as cleaning the baby for the first time, or feeding, it is not easy. The baby is still fragile and slippery and needs a special care. But if the mother is not ready for all these, or maybe, does not have any knowledge on what to do, the baby’s life might be endangered since the baby needs a special care which only the mother can give.

The mother-to-be was the one to decide when to send for the midwife and other women, and upon their arrival was sequestered into a darkened room with men kept far out of range. Afterwards, a successful delivery would be celebrated with drinking, singing, and recounting of scandalous tales amongst the women. The birth room was, in essence, its own “tightly enclosed time and space,” one in which men were unwelcome for what could be hours or days. Prior to the emergence of the “man-midwife,” the appearance of a medical man during labour could mean only one thing: death.
