His actions at that time nearly cost him the chance to fight for a heavyweight championship of the world. There is no doubt that Mohammad Ali is a great hero and beloved figure in American life. He was a person who faced America’s segregated society and while aiming to become the greatest boxer of all time. This book was set at a time where the people of colored were segregated from the white. During that time boxing was a very popular source of entertainment.
The persuasive article educates the American people when Brooks uses examples of logos, rhetorical question, and tone to explain how our economy is thriving similarly to our Olympic athletes who are bringing home the gold. Brooks begins his persuasive essay comparing Olympic success to the United States economy using the rhetorical device logos to justify his main claim that America’s economy is as strong as our Olympians training facilities. He uses persuasion skills like logos to gain trust from the audience “But America’s success is like our Olympic success, writ large,” (Brooks 8). Brooks adds onto that thought “In fact, American succeeds in global trade about as well as the Olympics,” (Brooks 14). Because of his use of logos he uses, his claim becomes more reasonable to the audience making for a
Also, I like how this book points out that the most uncommon people are the most successful. Barker refers to uncommon people as "Hopeful Monsters" which are individuals who deviates radically from the norm in a population because of a genetic mutation that confers a potentially adaptive advantage. For example the book mention Michael Phelps as a hopeful monster. His upper body is too long, legs to short, hands and feet to big, and he has gangly arms. In fact, he doesn’t seem designed to move well on land at all, but Phelps’s collection of odd traits makes him uniquely suited to being an awesome U.S. Olympic swimmer who has won the most awards than any swimmer has won in the world.
The Assassination of President William McKinley William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, he did many things people agreed with such as leading us to victory in the Spanish- American war, raising protective tariffs to promote american industry and he also urged the annexation of Hawaii which proved to be a smart move for the U.S. Unfortunately not everyone agreed with his views and what he had done as a president and he was shot twice on September 6, 1901 while at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, New York by 28-year old anarchist Leon Czolgosz. A few, but not many may say that his assassination was justified but I believe it was extremely unjustified. President Mckinley did many great things while in office. He was also liked by many and won his reelection easily.
He uses references to pop culture to make his writing more interesting. One case was using West Side Story. This encourages others to read his works. The more who read, the more likely someone is to see his side as being correct. Spreading originalism is something that he does around the world and is something that can be done with the interesting arguments presented in a fashion that is better understood by the general public.
Author’s commonly entice readers by using complex vocabulary and extremely detailed descriptions, also known as, diction. Readers will be more engaged if they can imagine the setting and characters.

In the short story “The Scarlet Ibis” , author James Hurst uses a great deal of diction to intrigue the readers.
Athlete, Trailblazer Sprinter, role model, are three words that make up James Cleveland Owens.

Some may argue that there is a winning side to all this corruption and fraud that is occurring in sports today. Stanley Bing, author for Forbes Magazine, states in his article, "Thriving in the Age of Fraudulence," that there are several benefits of cheating and fraud. Bing says these type of people, "seem to be doing very, very well" (Bing, 112), and that is actually correct. Athletes who use illegal banned substances tend to be winning every medal they compete for. These type of athletes, "Run Faster.
Americans love those people who are greatly skilled and are unique in their abilities—similar to the motto in the Olympics: Swifter, Higher, Stronger. Whether it’s speaking better than others, winning the Super Bowl, or in the case of Brent Musberger, acknowledging a beautiful woman fifty years younger than himself, we admire those who have superb abilities. William Rhoden acknowledged this idea in his October 12, 2012 New York Times article when he wrote that it is the essence of a hero to be, “unique and therefore inimitable.” And it is this slippery slope in which we surrender our self-respect for our self-interest in those who have talents that we can only desire. So, we give-in to these desires and put those with unique abilities on
An example of an athlete who “gained the whole world, but forfeit his life” (Mk. 8:36) is Lance Armstrong. This athlete took his goal to become a champion cyclist too far. The will to win is not intrinsically an evil goal, but he made the wrong sacrifices to achieve his goals. He sacrificed his body through intense training, and even used morally questionable performance-enhancing substances.
He really got it right when he promoted Steve Keim as the new GM and managed to steal former Coach of the year Bruce Arians away from Indianapolis. Steve Keim and Michael Bidwill have done a great job of getting top notch players in draft and free agency, and getting a stadium built here in the valley. Bruce Arians won Coach of the Year honors last year leading Arizona to their best win/loss record in team history. But there would be no team and no stadium without the diehard Cardinal
Since the Beijing Olympics in 2008 Bolt has won every race he 's entered at a World Championship or the Olympics, with the exception of one, where he was disqualified for making a false start. When non-athletes want to run fast they set about moving their legs as fast as they can, so you might assume that Bolt has achieved this exceptional record by making his legs move faster than everyone else has. But this idea doesn 't stand up - in fact, it falls flat on its face. "Elite sprinters don 't swing their legs any faster than recreational runners," says Dr Sam Allen of Loughborough University. Instead, the difference is that a top sprinter takes longer and more powerful strides.
"Bigger, Faster, Stronger" is the motto of the athlete, or at least for many athletes. Sports are something quite special; they drive our testosterone levels through the roof and may give great or horrible feelings! Fans, at times, can be very crazy; they will cheer their teams 24/7, cry when the teams lose, and celebrate when the teams win. Humans have been attracted to competition for a long time; sports can be traced to ancient times. Football (soccer) is believed to have evolved in China in the 3rd century B.C.
These athletes have the most popular sports teams and generate the most revenue. Their regulations are also much stricter that the regulation of Division I and II athletes. With special events such as March Madness, an end of the season tournament that involves the best Division I basketball ball teams where the battle each other for the NCAA National Basketball Champion title, or the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), a tournament that involves Division I football teams battling each other for NCAA Nation Football Champion title.
