Essentially, Sloan delivers an effective argument for his readers through his use of ethos and logos, aside from what might be considered weak pathos. For his audience of everyone, his use of ethos and logos are strong, since he is a highly educated, and a critical thinker that uses logos very effectively. He successfully executes his thoughtful thesis that patriotic slogans should not necessarily be taken at face value. That is to say, some slogans can be problematic and are worth scratching your head
It was much better than I had anticipated before reading it. Wes Moore is a strong author who properly used writing mechanics to deliver powerful scenes and great messages. I would say that the main theme of this book is the importance of education in adolescent life and that small things really can make all of the difference. The author Wes Moore 's life appeared very dull in comparison to the other Wes Moore 's; however, it was Wes Moore 's life that would provide quotes that inspire or were otherwise relatable to MAST life. One such quote in the novel was : "In spite of myself, I was impressed.
In Paul Ford’s “How to Be Polite” he argues that politeness is essential to success and self-development, creating opportunities that would otherwise not exist. In this article Ford explains the concepts of being nice and uses his own journey of developing politeness to give evidence. As someone who wouldn’t even have the same wife let alone friends if it wasn’t for his politeness Ford knows how essential politeness is. Ford acknowledges that he’s not typically associated with being polite and often others are surprised that despite his looks, within him is hidden politeness. He points to the time one of his coworkers complimented him on the invisibility of his politeness, referring to it as “ strategy” that “actually helped get things done”
So many authors have proven their pure genius threw their creations. Their work has inspired not only other authors, but readers, even to this day. There are many authors we still study today because of their extraordinary ability to produce such timeless and insightful pieces of literature. The texts that have impacted me the most are Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116, Shakespeare 's Sonnet 130, and Chaucer’s The Wife of Bath’s Tale. The first
Utilitarianism is a highly acclaimed theory that is morally based on consequentialism. In essence, consequentialism is the ideology that justifies its action by producing the greater good (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Some may refer to the principle of utility as the greatest happiness principle. Utilitarianism was fully developed by a British philosopher named John Stuart Mill. There are two types of utilitarianism: Act utilitarianism and rule utilitarianism.
Short stories often capture human nature at its most visceral level, speaking of the truths of the relationships that exists within it. Marquez, Ortiz, and Joyce each present a compelling case for elements that strengthen human bonds. Together they form a complex distinction between compassion and communication where communication stands as the victor as the greatest player in fostering human relationships and discourse. While the virtue of compassion proves a costly endeavor that is difficult to achieve, communication is more necessary to strengthen the bonds of humanity because it allows for a sharing of perspectives, yet does not make the false assumption that complete understanding is possible. The direct result of a lack of communication
Researching the different definitions of the word trust, the one that mirrors my thoughts is as follows: “belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.” according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, which also states: “a firm belief in character, strength, or truth of someone, or something.” Giving much thought to the word trust, one can see many ways it can play different roles and meanings in their life. Trust defines who we really are as a individuals. Trust is a staple ingredient in many aspects of life. Some individuals relatively give no thought to it or take the approach that it is one of the most valued characteristics that can be applied to everyday life. It is involved in many things, such as God and
Its versatile characteristics are what allows it to stay significant throughout generations. The fact that the King Arthur legend can reach a varied audience is the main reason it has stayed popular throughout time. Not only can the legend be told through different character perspectives, but it can be aimed at an adult audience or child audience. The King Arthur story is one story that can be many stories.
Commencement Speech According to the dictionary kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. This seems quite adequate as a description, however, in our modern society, we are easily caught up in our ravels for success, for happiness, for love. Often so that we solemnly forget that leading a happy life is usually not possible without the kindness of others. It might not be possible to truly define what kindness is, even though the dictionary makes an attempt, and perhaps it is not even necessary. However, it is definitely something we notice when it goes missing.

I don 't have an issue with social media as a method for communication, but there are many things that cannot be released to the public due to their sensitive nature. Over communication is great in my opinion and letting folks know about changes really increases the buy-in.” I completely agree with Chief about the “face-to-face” communication. It is of my observation that we as AFSPC/USSTRATCOM, rely too much on emails for making important decisions. Of course, we all may have a different definition of “important”. Regardless, I believe “face-to-face” communication will always be the best method of communication for important decision making and relationship building.
The most effective translation is Elizabeth Wyckoff due to its effectiveness in sentence structure and word choice. The sentence structure varies starting from Strophe 1, introducing the excerpt with “many the wonders but nothing walks stronger than man”. This simple sentence allows the main idea of Strophe 1 state itself in a quick and effective manner. After the introductory sentence, complex and compound sentences continue to Strophe 2. This variation slows the pace down making the reader look deeper into those sections.
With first hand experience, he uses his article to explain the importance and benefits of 2.0 websites. His main purpose is to urge his audience that 2.0 websites are needed and do not cause as much harm as they have positive impacts. Johnson states, “ I happen to be a great believer in this wave, but there is no avoiding the reality that the shift from pro to am comes at some cost”(470). He expresses that 1.0 websites have their share of professionalism but 2.0 websites offer way more. Johnson goes on to say, “ This is a perfectly legitimate debate to have,
Take for example my first sentence from the Zeitoun long comp, “Human nature is a fickle thing, no one person being perfect”. That sentence isn’t awful, and technically isn’t grammatically incorrect, but it seems a little awkward and stilted. Thanks to Mrs. Provost and her lesson on colons and semicolons, I’ve learned that a more natural replacement for that sentence could be “Human nature is a fickle thing: no one is perfect”. Small things like that are a great showcase of the strides I’ve made in my command of the English language. Another area I believe i improved in was the writing of theses and introduction paragraphs.
I feel that letting the free market create its own “regulations” through supply and demand is the best course of action in most cases. The greatest value he presented, that I could not agree more with, was that of respecting dissent. He stated, “A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance, nor wish it to prevail through the power of majority” (Throeau, n.d.). This is a great call to fight for what we believe in through any means possible. With the expansion of social media dissent and the ability to have your voice be heard is easier than ever.
