The book Concussion focuses on the dangers of concussions in football and exposes the NFL to its audience for neglecting what concussions were doing to their players. In the book Concussion the author Jeanne Marie Laskas uses Logos and Analogy to persuade NFL players, families, and fans that the NFL should be discredited for endangering NFL players and to spread awareness about the dangers of Football. In the Book Concussion Jeanne Laskas uses statistics in the book to spread awareness about the dangers of football. “ The G-Force for a football being knocked out is about 60-90 G’s to compare a fighter pilot will pass out at 5 or 6 G’s but that’s over a long period of time” (Laskas 164)
[…] These make-believe individuals are thus crafted to be hero prototypes—individuals possessing powerful heroic qualities that we easily recognize and admire” (Scott 32). These fictional characters allow the audience to get a firm grasp onto something that they strive to be, not only for entertainment, but for inspiration and educational purposes as well. Heroes are designed for the audience to admire and respect. Scott and Goethal perfectly describe the obstacles that heroes must overcome in saying, “Struggle is a central, inescapable part of the human experience.
Seuss also uses many themes to make a comparison to the Cold War. One of the themes is the competition between the two sides. Another is the fight for power of the land. The third is the fight for modernization and creation of new technology. The cold war was a war between the United States and the Soviet Union and allies of the two.
With many rule changes and progressive steps to prevent concussions the NFL knows there’s an issue but to make that issue the main focal point of what already is known to be a violent game isn’t rational. Brain injuries and concussions happen in every sport, the NFL is
Beowulf illustrates the heroic code that holds very highly the values of not only fortitude, valor, and devotion, but also hospitality and generosity in its leaders. You can see this code demonstrated when Beowulf decides to fight Grendel unarmed as Grendel
There exist two sorts of utilitarianism: the ACT and the RULE. The Act Utilitarian expresses that an action is awesome just to the degree that it progresses net, complete, expected utility. Then again, the Rule Utilitarian says that an action is awesome just to the degree that it agrees with a fundamental which would propel net, absolute, expected utility, and were it to be all around totally (Posner,
He says,”We know we can’t stop every act of violence… but maybe we can stop one act of evil, one act of violence”(Obama 2). In this line, Obama is indicating that although America, and specifically the issue of increasing amounts of violence in America will never be will never be “perfect”, perfection can still be aimed towards. This very real goal is found multiple times throughout the speech as Obama continues to restate the idea that improvement should always be an option. Another example of this is when he says,”We can’t save everybody, but we can save some”(Obama 2). Here Obama is addressing the violence and deaths connected to guns.
Dr.King tells: "It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat" (277-278).In other words, Dr.King uses alliteration to create and certain tone and rhythm for his speech. The use of alliteration brings out the important words and main ideas that Dr.King is
Just America or Just in War? Throughout the decades, history has recorded all the wars in which the United States has participated in. Some may consider that the United States’ participation in foreign affairs may have been cruel, or unnecessary; while in other cases, others find it essential for the United States to fight for the common good. Therefore, philosophers—in the pursuit of justice—have designed methods that dictate how a nation can justly engage into a war, one of this methods being the Just War theory.

Pinal County encompasses 5,374 square miles with a population of 401,918 consisting of both urban and highly rural areas that present unique deployment problems. By following the FEMA Preparedness Cycle modality of plan, organize/equip, train, exercise, evaluate/improve the Pinal County Sheriff can create and test expectations through rigorous and objective training. PURPOSE Through the use of a full-scale emergency management exercise we can measure the capabilities of the Pinal County Sheriff to address and react
(Kenney 2012) Although the players’ representation admits that the earliest studies were on boxers, they believe that there had been more than enough evidence gathered to prove the link between MTBIs sustained during football and dementia symptoms later in life by the 1950’s. The players accuse the NFL of actively suppressing knowledge of the extent of damage caused by MTBIs and promoting the physicality of the sport for profit. (Kenney 2012) The players’ group has been largely contending with the NFL, driven by the idea that these players have been morally wronged by the organization.
Concern over security issues FDR and his administration from disclosing some information to Congress. Nevertheless, Congress has the right to be informed as much a possible of the progress of the programs that were established to increase the nation’s military might. FDR went on to say: “New circumstances are constantly be getting new needs for our safety. I shall ask this Congress for greatly increased new appropriations and authorizations to carry on what we have begun. I also ask this Congress for authority and for funds sufficient to manufacture additional munitions and war supplies of many kinds, to be turned over to those nations which are now an actual war with aggressor nations.”
Appendix 2: Funding Sources The Federal Government provides guidelines for funding planning and hazard mitigation activities.

The hero (the U.S. and any allies) confronts a dangerous, evil and irrational villain and must defeat him, liberating his oppressed people” (Harmon and Muenchen 2). This spin was of course picked up by sources traditionally on better terms with conservatives (Fox News being the most notable). This was not an isolated incident. Running for reelection in 2004, Bush campaign officials orchestrated or at least reiterated false allegations made against Senator Kerry and his war record carefully to let the press loose with their narrative
