The American Pioneer Johnny Appleseed If you like apples then you owe a thank you to Johnny Appleseed for helping spread them throughout America. Johnny Appleseed was a make believe character that was based on John Chapman. Although many of the facts told in the story did happen, most did not occur in John Chapman’s real life. Even though Johnny’s plantings were minimal, the impact to America was large. He not only helped the world by providing apples, he also with his kind heart and personality.
This readied him for scientific breakthroughs and gave him the knowledge to teach others. With his great interest in plants and his college education, George Washington Carver was prepared to do what he wanted. Accomplishments Due to his motivation and his preparation George Washington Carver accomplished many things while he was alive. As reported by the biography, “George Washington Carver,” he was able to create 60 products from the pecan, 100 products from the sweet potato, and over 145 from peanuts (“George Washington Carver,”1998). After discovering new uses for these plants, Carver insisted that they become new cash crops to replace cotton.
The Evolution of Asian American Culture The United States is not a “melting pot” of cultures but is more complex like a “salad bowl” where foreign and domestic influences combine to create a society where individual differences in gender, race religion, or ethnic background are valued. Immigrants strived to become the ideal “American” citizen, a more historically accurate metaphor is that the U.S. has had a cultural “cookie cutter” with a white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant, male mold; but the view of culture has changed. Today, with the increase of numerous subcultures, diversity is greater valued and accepted. The growing acknowledgment of Asian American subculture present is in social media as a result of the continuously growing Asian American population. Ever since Asians first arrived in the mid-nineteenth century, the expansion and greater exposure
Despite what the adage says, apples and oranges are comparable. Not only are they fruits farmed to satisfy the average man’s appetite, but both stem from the same roots (quite literally). Apples and oranges start as seeds planted by their creators and eventually grow into complex structures of branches that yield the unique fruits themselves. Like apples and oranges, comedy and tragedy are pictured as opposing concepts: happy and sad. Yet, they are more intertwined than most realize; they both stem from the branches that make up a play’s plot and both serve to satisfy an audience 's emotional appetite.
Nick thinks of Gatsby of making people feel like they are important. As said in the book "Gatsby`s smile made someone feel as if they were the most important person in the world", meaning that Gatsby would always give you all his attention when he talked. This also gave other people reasons to believe that he was lying. These rumors that
The values that early American writers considered most important were piety, courage, and industry. They were highly honored by the large Puritan population, and these values helped them survive the beginning of the colonies. Overtime, however, different values were stressed more than others. For example, in “Of Plymouth Plantation,” written around 1620, Bradford chooses to write about the piety, courage, and industry of all the settlers in his settlement. In 1630, Winthrop gave his sermon “A Model of Christian Charity,” and in it he motivates his audience using piety and industry as reasons to succeed.
A lot of reviewers felt similar to Belko and respected the work he did on Green. “Belko 's book is impressive in providing a new, stimulating perspective on Jacksonian politics, and in effectively re-evaluating the figure of Duff Green. However, his insistence in connoting him as a Westerner tout court tends to reinforce, rather than challenge traditional views of interregional contraposition that have long underscored the South 's isolation--ideological, cultural, and economic--from the mainstream of American history. It would be a shame if Belko, with his vast knowledge of Green 's life and thought, didn 't seize the opportunity and cover the last few decades of his existence in the South” (Susanna Delfino). “Belko has produced an outstanding book, both in substance and style.
He uses pronouns such as “you,” “we,” and “us” in his chapter to include and address the reader. For example, he says “What I told you at the beginning of this chapter about the extraordinary intelligence of Chris Langan, in other words, is of little use if we want to understand his chances of being a success in the world” (Gladwell 90). He addresses the reader personally, seemingly including them in the process. Gladwell also uses phrases like “What does the story of Chris Langan tell us?” (Gladwell 96). This fosters a feeling that the reader is in the discovery along with Gladwell.
He uses satire and irony to show how marketers of locally made products are taking advantage of the ordinary man’s loyalty to his country to sell their product. This essay will hence provide a critical analysis of the piece by Barry, set out some of the stylistic devices he uses to pass his message and give an opinion on whether he succeeds in the delivery of his message. Discussion Besides being a humorous piece of work, Dave Barry exhibits to his readers the effect that loyalty to one’s country can have on the sales and advertising of goods and services. He demonstrates how virtually any product notwithstanding its bogusness it is, can sell well. Provided the advertisers can make it seem having possession of the product is a show of patriotism.
Audrey, I truly appreciated Congressman McEwen’s analogy and the PIE formula. The evidence provided in the presentations were constructive and provided tools to sharpen critical thinking skills which translate into debating and arguing persuasively. Christians and real Jews are held to higher standards than liberals. Due to original sin, it is challenging for humans to maintain integrity and character; however, it should be a goal to strive to do our best, since our behavior is being scrutinized constantly. Conservatives do respect the unalienable rights of all Americans and extend the philosophy of Compassionate Conservatism to the disenfranchised and the invisible majority (Bush, 2002).
