Such may include how it affects teenagers. Dystopian writing tends to break many ethical rules, serving as a fantasy for teenagers to stroll around in, noticing how many ethical rules are actually being broken. ""It's a question of how many ethics rules are you willing to break", she says… "I mean, is making a clone ethical?"" (Why Teens Find the End Of the World So Appealing, Nadworny Pg1). In short, this explains how the story House of The Scorpion by Nancy Farmer breaks the ethical rule of making clones, and seeing how it isn't very ethical to do so, it breaks a boundary that people could see being placed if such were possible.
Even though the essay’s are some of the top written ones; there are still reasons why it should not be part of college writing courses. A Study in Ambidexterity written by Justin has a good example of why they should not be written. “So now, when I run into the inevitable questions in college applications about who I really am, I can answer clearly: I am ambidextrous” (Justin). With this essay for a college submission showing how well, something is used to represent what good qualities he has. Sadly, only one big idea is used to express the reasons why he is so successful in different environments.
Is this healthy, is this causing more than a minor issue? Nicholas Carr and Clive Thompson both talk about technology and the impacts on it, but through two different views. Yet I still believe either way that technology can negatively affect your social life and relationships you hold with others, but especially friends and family. Nicholas Carrs essay, “Is Google Making Us Stupid” he argues that using the internet as our search engine and reading source is altering the way that we read and process information. “Never has a communications system played so many roles in our lives-or exerted such broad influence over our thoughts-as the internet does today,” (Carr 321).
Not everyone is using Social Media which is why the sample from which data sets come from is most likely a very biased one (Gayo-Avello, 2011; Jahanbakhsh & Moon, 2014). Likewise, Gayo-Avello (2011) suggests that researchers suffer under a so called ‘file drawer effect’ – this is an inclination towards reporting positive outcomes after a couple of confident results while ignoring or suppressing the negative ones, which is another form of biased behaviour and can have drastic
Texting and its effects on complicated-formal writings compared to the theory that Google, along with all other search engines, is making those that use them stupid. While both articles discuss the pros and cons of two well respected technological services, the services themselves are polar opposites and the ideals regarding the effects of both services vary as well. “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” argues that overuse of search engines, can lead to the permanent inability to process long articles and retain large amounts of information from essays/ long papers. While “Does Texting Affect Writing” makes the case that, while texting can potentially have an impact on our formal writing skills, the errors found in papers are typically caused by force-of-habit because of the poor instincts we develop due to the use of abbreviations, poor punctuation and spelling errors in our texting. However, these habits can be broken and fixed with grammar practice and time and are not permanent like the effects caused by Google are told to
In the article "Your iPhone is Ruining Your Posture- and Your Mood," by Amy Cuddy, She Directly get to her argument "SmartPhones are ruining our posture. And bad Posture doesn 't just mean a stiff neck. It can hurt us in insidious psychological ways. "What she means by the quote is that, posture affects us in sneaky ways that we won 't notice it until it happens. In the article Cuddy also claims her arguments multiple times.When reading the article she claims her argument in many different ways trying to make sure the reader understand.
A person 's decision impacts others in an utmost way, because they provoke us to behave and act in specific ways, especially when it comes to cautious content in books and the censorship of them. To illustrate this idea and relate it to a recent event, popular “meme” page admins on a prominent social media website, Facebook, have been boycotting the site due to the sites active use of censorship, according to an article written by Sage Lazzaro from The Observer. The admins and
This essay serves a convincing and powerful tone about how “colleges have a serious problem with alcohol abuse among students, and it is not getting any better” (336). It mentions how colleges are oblivious to this issue, and the problem will be solved over time, which is not true because evidence shows that students have carried their drinking issues throughout their lives. This essay lists steps about how this problem can be prevented in college campuses, and it does include statistics, but it relies on persuasive strategies to convince the audience that steps need to be taken to reduce the large amount of binge drinking in colleges, especially with students underage. The essay also uses convincing statements such as “Colleges cannot claim to create a supportive learning environment where they support such behavior” (338) and includes repetition of words like “must” to show that action needs to be done about this problem that continues to happen every year. Therefore, to prevent this conflict, the essay offers a solution of recommending a weekend tour so students can see the shame on students’ face after a night of drinking, and colleges also need to acknowledge the dangers of alcohol consumption.
In the essay, “Isolated by the Internet”, author Clifford Stoll explains that recent research, conducted by psychologists Robert Kraut and Vicki Lundmark, suggests that frequent use of the Internet has had a generally negative effect on the psychological well being of its users. Using examples from Kraut and Lundmark’s previously mentioned research, Stoll asks, “Will the proliferation of shallow, distant social ties make up for the loss of close local links?” The question Stoll raises here is entirely valid, and just as concerning; as the more time one spends online, the more time one subsequently spends alone, away from people he or she could be potentially interacting with. I believe Stoll’s concerns are completely justified as today, (falsely comforted by shallow, superficial relationships,
Sadly, advertisers are being duped by data mining companies which provide data that kind of represents consumers in a false light. This data is mostly obtained from online platforms and as is common knowledge, not everything online is true. One particular source of data for these companies is social media and the lives people claim to live on social media 7/10 times is probably a lie. This type of data is what makes advertisers miss the mark in most of their campaigns. They end up targeting the wrong market whenever they use this data.
