Even though both are responsible for the tragedy on Everest one is held more accountable. Given these points it is reasonable to determine the fault lies in the man’s actions of pride and hubris. For example, while looking around in the snow, Beidleman and Schoening claim that there are no safe places to hide from the storm. To look for a good hiding place, one must walk and move around instead of just standing and looking to be protected.

In Roxane Gay’s essay “The Illusion of Safety/The Safety of Illusion”, the argument being made here is in part the usefulness of trigger warnings, as well as the idea that everyone has a situation that is unique to them and that we need to avoid putting everyone in the same box. Because Gay’s main argument is on the usefulness of trigger warnings, it’s imperative that she convince readers that she knows what she’s talking about. Gay proves this effectively by immediately listing her triggers using a unique technique. Every sentence begins using the same word. In addition to this she doesn’t actually finish her thought.
This is a good rhetorical appeal because everyone knows about Martin Luther King Jr., Obama connects with us emotionally by using the fact that Dr. King enrolled into this college at the age of 15, he used his passion to study harder, and with the help of his college, Martin Luther King Jr. is able to thrive towards his dreams. Another example of pathos is when Obama says, “ I was raised by a heroic single mom, wonderful grandparents…”(Obama 8). Obama uses the fact that he did not grow up with the dream family, the family with two supportive parents. No, he specifically said that he grew up with a “heroic” mother and no father figure in his life. Since almost half of the United States lives with two parents, many people will take on pity

One time I ended up kicking a ball in Big Base and fell down because my knee had popped. Another time I walked down our stairs, and it slipped. Six months after the first time falling, I needed surgery. Normally on a Friday morning, I would have ridden the bus to school and hung around until class started. Instead, I hopped into my mom’s suburban, and we rode to St. Gabriel’s Hospital in Little Falls.
In fact, many claimed that PSA announcements did work. However, every study I read had recorded the short term effects, and no one seemed to know the long term. I however have observed the long term effect on my family and friends. Short term, the people who view the PSA have an awareness of the costs of distracted driving, and try to prevent it. However, this awareness only lasts as long as they remember to be aware.
This book takes the reader through in-depth history like first explorers at the base of the mountain and famous climbers who summit. He also writes with extreme detail about the Sherpa culture, for without their skills and adaptations, the attempt to summit would be inconceivable. But along Krakauer’s journey to Mount Everest’s peak, he adds how much more accessible the mountain has become as a result of commercialization. Into Thin Air is most known for its precise structure of the storm in the Death Zone. Although many disagree and criticize his memory of the blizzard, Krakauer recalls specific locations and struggles of the other climbers.
Optimism was one of Terry’s best qualities, but he hadn’t always seen the glass half full. When Terry had his right leg amputated, he was dispirited and unhappy (TerryFox:Facts,2015). It took him a while to get accustomed to his new prosthetic leg and the lifestyle that came with it. It was especially hard since Terry was such an athletic person and was always on his feet before the amputation, but he prevailed over his problems and saw it as an opportunity to raise cancer awareness (TerryFox:Facts,2015). “His world was turned around, but he decided to look on the loss of his leg as a new challenge.” (Scrivener,2000,p.
The entire day had been a struggle as we slipped on the various rocks underneath our feet as we made our way up Mt. Phillips. Every ten minutes our Scoutmaster, Mr. Britton, would gleefully shout, and “Come on boys, just a little more climbing and we will be at the top.” Although I wanted to believe him, I was running out of energy. This was the most difficult challenge I had ever faced in my seventeen years of life and I felt like quitting, but I did not want to let Mr. Britton down. Mr. Britton always had various words of wisdom he would pass on to us as he was teaching us a lesson.
