For a commercial to work “part of the trick is that we can be wooed by the logic of the admen only if we are part of the cultural script it writes for us and writes us into” (Cathy Davidson, 30). At first glance, Cymbalta commercial viewers may see the ad senseless, as it portray how the drug is a remedy to depression despite of it listing out the negative side effect of the drug.

Davidson is expressing that if a person has a different cultural value in relation with the advertisement, the advertisement

Do Amy and Lou Weiss also have some good points that educate the reader on Sessions point of view about marijuana. They state that Sessions says, “Good people do not smoke marijuana” (Amy and Lou Weiss). This would make the reader think that Session believe that bad people smoke. Clearly Sessions is misunderstanding the point as to why people are smoking.
The definition of freedom has changed over history. The enlightenment, and imperialism affected the way we see freedom today. Imperialism did sway the freedom back to the past ways, but the outcome of imperialism taught us that it is not a good idea. The world is more free than it was in the past, because of the ideas of the enlightenment and imperialism, which made the modern day world more free.

However, now my view is completely changed and I will not be so quick to pass judgement in the future. In conclusion, The Glass Castle was the most influential novel I read this year in my AP Senior English class.
For instance, McCullough says, “If you’ve learned anything in your four years here I hope it’s that education should be for, rather than material advantage, the exhilaration of learning.” (pg. 5). McCullough is signifying that growth and learning should be something people do because they enjoy it and think it’s fun. McCullough validates that children have been more worried about having a good resume to send to colleges than putting their happiness and other’s happiness first, like how “Guatemalan medical clinic becomes more about the application to Bowdoin than the well-being of Guatemalans. “ (Pg. 5)
Reflection For my senior project I chose to research drug testing for student athletes. While I was working on my Senior Exhibition I ran into a lot of obstacles. I had a difficult time choosing a topic because I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to research but when I did I ended up finding a lot of important information. Another obstacle I ran into was finding an advisor and a time that was convenient for the advisor and I to meet.
Referring to teenagers and their parents, Martin explains that “arguments are having less to do with tattoos and piercings than with core issues such as separation from the family matrix” (Martin, 2000, 143). This quote does contain negative connotations, but Martins only intention is to provide child psychiatrists with the correct information and the common disagreements between adults and teenagers. Some positive connotations that Martin uses throughout his writing is to describe the benefits that tattoos can give teenagers.

These positive connotations set the mood for Martins academic article, and help him reach his goal of effectively communicating with his
Every week listening to the lessons in the Gospel from the stories really does help me as a person understand what path is the right one. Since the beginning of time people have turned to religion to answer their problems and that is one thing that I believed has not changed. In this time and age people lose sight of religion as they turn to technology to answer their questions but myths have always been the answer to the mysteries of this planet. “But there is a fourth function of myth... Myths can teach you that” (Campbell 39).
Personally, I have never read a book quite like Freedom 's Main Line or A Nation Forged in War. But, Freedom’s Main Line is outstanding in the way it reiterates documents, oral and written articles and words exchanged by President Kennedy, all of these to prove his point that the Freedom Rides acknowledged a problem and fought to make a change. Catsam helped boost my understanding of this civil rights movement by throwing in various historical events. The book also caught my attention by the time frame being so close to what I am studying in my current history class. Freedom 's Main Line will help a number of history students and would be insightful to a number of African American and American historians.

Leary also preached and encourage the youth to take LSD to help them explore a more accepting and aware state of mind that transcended the conventional mindset of thought and locked people to their traditional conservative lifestyles.  This reawakened the hippies of America and the world. The hippie LSD movement in America influenced the western world with their openness to new ideas and self-expression, exploration, and sexuality. LSD was also a catalyst for new ideas and acceptances that helped support other movements and helped carve a path for the conversations and awareness of what use to be taboo subjects. They lived off the ideology of free love, music, peace, and mind opening drugs.
People are going to the hospital, they are overdosing on these medications. They get it from friends, or steal it, and they can get addicted to it. This should not happen, and something has to be done about it. There is a problem with abusing and misusing ADHD prescription drugs.
