The assembly line was “the engine of American prosperity” of the 20th century, and even of today. It represented the values of the common American; acceleration, innovation, and efficiency. It ushered in a new age of mass production and consumerism, more goods were readily available to purchase, and people had more disposable income to purchase these goods. While the assembly line improved the American society as a whole, it also greatly affected the lives of those who worked on it, both for the positive and negative. While the assembly line did bring about higher wages, less hours, and unionized benefits for workers, its consequences greatly outweighed the benefits. David E. Nye put it as, “The assembly line seems as a dehumanizing force on

The author Andrew Curry thinks that workers today are unfulfilled because they would rather work a job they do not like and earn more money than work a job that they are passionate about and earn less. He also talks about how people seem to work more than relax in today's age like when he says “instead of working less, our hours have stayed steady or risen.” (Curry, Kirszner and Mandell 399) the evidence that he uses to connect his view is the amount of people who complain about their jobs. Nowadays everyone knows a person that constantly complains about his or her job but they still work that same job because of the financial gain. Many people today hate the job they work but that same job is the reason they have a car, house etc. furthermore
In all three parts of the book, Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home, Richard Foster addresses seven different types of prayer in each section. The first kind of prayer that Foster addresses in part one is the Simple Prayer. The Simple Prayer is essentially exactly what the name says it is. Foster calls it the most basic and primary form of prayers. He also says that is the most common form of prayer found in the Bible. The Simple Prayer is where we come before the Father with our sins and mess-ups and just talk to Him. Foster summarized the Simple Prayer brilliantly when he said, “In a very real sense we are the focus of Simple Prayer. Our needs, our wants, our concerns dominate our prayer experience.”

In Sunil Yapa’s “Your Heart Is A Muscle The Size Of A Fist”, Chief Bishop is torn between his beliefs and his passion as the head of the Seattle Police Department. Bishop’s character is confused on what is the right thing to do, because of his personal beliefs and his moral duty to his city. In general, Chief Bishop is an overall good person. He genuinely cares for his city, the people in it, and will protect it at all cost. Chief Bishop’s personality reveals a sense of patriarchy, because while he was married to his wife he did take on the father role of his step-son Victor. That symbolizes patriarchy, because that wasn’t a role he signed up for nor had to do, but not once did he complain. He saw victor as his son regardless of race or biological genetics, not because he had to but because he wanted to. After his wife died, he took on the role of a single parent because that was his duty to himself that Victor would be taken
The American dream is a dream of a land in which one can prosper with ambition and hard work. This idea has created many illusions for some because in reality the American dream is proven to be something that is rarely achieved. No individual is guaranteed success or destined for failure, but it is apparent that women, people of color, and those born into poverty will face greater obstacles than others, despite being a greater part of the American population. An author that tackles the issue of class in the United States is Gregory Mantsios. In his essay, “Class in America-2009”, Mantsios aims to prove that class affects people’s lives in drastic ways. Mantsios serves as a primary text for, “Serving in Florida” by Barbara Ehrenreich.
In the novel The Jungle, Upton Sinclair illustrates that “Neither the squeals of hogs nor tears of visitors made any difference to [the workers]; one by one they hooked up the hogs, and one by one with a swift stroke they slit their throats” exemplifying the desensitization of workers in the meat-packing industry (Sinclair, 35). This desensitization was the result of years of tedious work that removed all hope from the workers and left them isolated. However, it is not only the nature of the work that affected them, but those who had more power than them. The advance of the industrial revolution resulted in businessmen and bosses gaining power simultaneously while workers were becoming circumscribed by their work.

I have heard it said by friends that they think of liberals as promoting policies that stem from the heart while conservatives think from the head. Although this may not be completely accurate for every conservative or liberal, I do believe that this description of the two major sides of most issues can be seen throughout conservative and liberal policies. For example, liberals are repeatedly outspoken when it comes to policies that expand the social safety net, for taxing the rich and giving money to the poor. I believe that much of these policies stem from a genuine moral standing on the part of liberal politicians and voters. Conservatives tend to shy away from policies that expand the welfare system because they genuinely believe that the
A memorable work experience will also involve an individual who feels that they and their work matters. The idea of slavery is shun upon because the effort of the slaves was not properly recognized, nor were their effort of any matter to the white masters and slaveholders. Former slave Frederick Douglass’s narrative of his life as a slave under the supervision of slaveholder Mr. Covey focus not on his unpaid hard labor, but that he did not he mattered to. Douglass addressed that there could never be too much “rain, blow, hail, or snow” to work (Douglass 320). Forcing someone to work from day until dawn despite the condition of the weather is a message to them that they do not matter. When individual feels that they do not matter the meaning
Everyday American businesses find innovative ways to progress in the economy, the question is, are they progressing the ethically correct way? Journalist, Esther Kaplan argues in her article, “Americans Are Working So Hard, It’s Actually Killing People” that companies overwork their employees to exhaustion. Kaplan effectively supports her claim with powerful evidence and statistics, followed by cited sources and strong word choice that creates vivid images which allow the readers to identify with the employees, and pulls the reader in with emotions such as horrifying shock and anger.
Significant blunt cardiac injury is relatively uncommon. Most patients who suffer severe cardiac injury such as rupture of the free ventricular wall die quickly. One research report described patients with blunt cardiac rupture who were rapidly diagnosed and aggressively managed because of early bedside ultrasound. The authors stressed the importance of prompt cardiac ultrasound in all patients with significant blunt chest trauma.Cardiac rupture causes a pericardial effusion, which will be easily recognized during the FAST exam. Severe global ventricular dysfunction may also be noted during the FAST exam, more likely the result of severe acidosis from hypovolemic shock than blunt cardiac injury. Although blunt cardiac rupture is rare,
A visual rhetoric is one’s ability to interpret what an image is trying to communicate. Several elements help communicate a message or accomplish a purpose. For example the background, text, font, color or shading being used. For my visual rhetorical analysis I chose an ad. In 2007 a German online recruiting website ran a marketing campaign called Jobs in Town. This German campaign combined a visual image with text to show what the wrong work environment can do to someone and inspiring the audience to find the perfect job for them.
While Lincoln was able to very successful leading with the head, it is important to know that he did an even better job leading with his heart. It takes an extremely intelligent person to be able to lead with both the head and the heart, leading with the heart entails, mainly emotional intelligence. Being able to be emotionally intelligent gave Lincoln the upper hand when it came to leading an entire country. When announcing the Emancipation Proclamation Lincoln simply told his cabinet what his plans was and let them know he did not need them to debate any further, however he then told them to give him their best ideas and he will use them to make his Proclamation even stronger. “From the very first day he tried to gain the respect of those who knew him and during his presidency, citizens could go visit him in his office” (SOURCE). This exemplifies how leading with your heart can help ensure the trust of everyone around, and be used to have more supporters during Lincoln’s campaign.
