Dave Berry, writer of Guys vs Men, starts off his article by talking about men and what they are like. He then starts talking about “guys” and what he means by that word. To explain the word, he gives characteristics: Guys like neat stuff, guys like a really pointless challenge, and guys do not have a rigid and well-defined moral code. His first topic is that guys like neat stuff. He gives the example of how complex his computer is and how he loves new complex computers yet all he uses it for is to write articles and the process he goes through to write those articles. The second topic is that guys like a really pointless challenge. He gives the example of his coworkers talking about how fast they could run the forty-yard dash. He explains
Have you heard of the quote “The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on”? Most would have not, but you most definitely heard of the name Barack Obama. A now very successful man who I admire greatly. However, his life wasn 't without challenges, especially in his childhood. Obama had a very charred and challenged childhood. There were 3 major challenges in his life. Racism, betrayal and struggle. Today I wish to inform you about the challenges that faced the future 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama II.

Over the the years, more and more people have become heavily dependent on technology to get us through our day. A reason for that is because technology has been rapidly advancing. For example, back in the day people used pagers, dvr’s, and typewriters. Now we have 3D televisions, computers, game systems, social media, search engines, and smartphones that come out every year. In Nicholas Carr’s article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” he argues that the internet is filling us with artificial knowledge. Carr tries to persuade the audience by using his rhetorical strategies ethos, logos, and pathos.

He states that the internet is “the world’s most powerful engine for putting heads together” (Thompson 61) which means that the internet will close the gap between distant inventions and innovators. He also argues that the world’s most influential machine is “the Internet, which encourages public thinking and resolves multiples on a much larger scale and at a pace more dementedly rapid” (Thompson 61). By having the internet as a place to make connections between ideas, inventors, and innovators, it will not only expand their ideas but will also prevent the loss of
In the article “Is Google Making Us Stupid,” Nicholas Carr talks about whether or not modern day technology is making us lazier. He starts out with a popular scene from Stanley Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey which is a conversation between a computer and a man named Dave. The computer is saying that its mind is going and that its artificial brain is malfunctioning. This eye catcher shows us how much we actually interact with computer technology now days is what they predicted so long ago the future would be like. But little did they know it would come so soon.

“No one who can rise before dawn three hundred sixty days year fails to make his family rich”(Gladwell 249). In Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell shows that many factors come into play when looking at successful people. He shows that a series of luck, work ethic, and persistence can lead to success. When looking at people like Bill Gates and Bill Joy, Gladwell shows how these factors came into play in their early lives and allowed them to build their opportunity to become successful. Gates and Joy worked hard at what they were passionate about and ended up creating two major technological companies. Gladwell’s assertion that “if you work hard enough and assert yourself, and use your mind and imagination, you can shape the world
The moon landing was an exciting and phenomenal event, but a mars landing would be even more exciting for humanity. "In college, I wanted to be involved in things that would change the world.

Choose a person within your declared major whom you believe is a good model of a Christian or moral leader.

Do you ever think of why should or shouldn’t the rich people pay more tax than others? Nowadays, people are arguing about the fairness of paying more tax. Statistics have proven that the rich have paid the majority of U.S. income taxes. A person making $100,000 will pay a higher percentage of his income in taxes than a person making $20,000 for instance. According to the Congressional Budget Office, “The 10% of households with the highest incomes pay more than half of all federal taxes. They pay more than 70% of federal income taxes.” On one hand, some experts think rich shouldn’t be taxed more because somehow the money was earned. Rich people worked hard to earn it, and their work should be valued. On the other hand, most people think that rich should pay more tax because they get more from the government. Is it ethical and rational to tax more on rich? Why must the rich pay more tax to help the poor? Although taxing more on rich seems unfair for the rich, it is necessary that rich people should pay more tax and the amount they pay are based on their incomes.
“Your model of the world is what shapes you long term…That’s what’s shaping us. It makes people make decisions” are the exact words of Tony Robbins at TED2006 in his inspirational TED talk (talk), Why we do what we do. Robbins calls himself the “why guy” who is dedicated to uncover people’s motivation for their actions. He believes that emotion is the force of life, and that if humans get the right emotions, they can accomplish anything. The main idea of his presentation is the fulfillment of the last two out of the six human needs he mentioned, growth and contribution, so people can give back and appreciate others in return. After analyzing Robbins’ talk, it is evident that he is a persuasive
