In the postscript, Petrie explains that he wanted to write an essay “that would expose… the dangers and hypocrisy” of the collegiate athletic system. The diction of that sentence alone uncovers Petrie’s purpose. The word “expose” implies that under the sugar coating of temporary fame and fortune, there is an ugly reality for college athletes. Since this is a persuasive essay, the purpose was gradually revealed. As Petrie stated in the postscript, he starts by establishing credibility with his experiences as a student and educator and presenting both sides of his argument to gain the respect of his audience.
Bethany Brookshire, the author of the article “New gene resists our last-ditch drug” found in the Society for Science & the Public, invoked fear and urgency in teen readers fascinated with biology and health. Throughout her article, Brookshire establishes that doctors, farmers, and everyday citizens should be cautious in the use of antibiotics and use methods to limit the spread of harmful bacteria worldwide. She gains her readers’ attention and trust by quoting information from several scientists in different fields and from different parts of the world. Although her syntax was rigid and overly simplified, Brookshire connect to the teen readers ****** Brookshire is professional and *** in her popular article. She maintains an unbiased standpoint

The truth of science: Empiricists versus Popper versus Kuhn Abstract This paper is going to discuss the truth of science throughout the past centuries. So the Empiricists, who believed in truth by observation. And how Karl Popper (1902-1994) and Thomas Kuhn (1922-1996) tried to get closer to a better scientific model by fal- sification and paradigm shifts respectively.
“Influenza Pandemics must be taken seriously, precisely because of their capacity to spread rapidly to every country in the world” (Chan). This quote that was just stated is very relevant to what happened in 1918 during the Great Influenza or what is also called the Spanish Influenza. Many people call it the “Mother of All Pandemics” because of its impact. John Barry’s “The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History” shows us how the influenza took part in people’s everyday lives. One can tell that this book has a good solid background, strengths and weaknesses, and great use of imagery.
In an excerpt from The Great Influenza by John M. Barry, many rhetorical devices are used to fully represent the process of a scientist. Some of the most commonly used devices are metaphors, anaphoras, and imagery, these three devices help the reader understand the main ideas of the story. The metaphors allow the reader to perceive the process of a scientist in more simplistic ideas such as science being an undiscovered wilderness. The anaphora used in the beginning of the passage emphasises that the world of science is full of uncertainty and is constantly changing, this drives the idea into the mind of the reader. The imagery is used alongside the metaphors to assist the reader in grasping the foreign ideas.
George Washington owned several books and articles that discussed the abolishment of slavery which were all located in his personal library. Many pieces in the collection had been given to him as gifts, meaning there were personal relationships between Washington and the authors, many of which being from across the Atlantic world. These texts are one of the only few clues available to historians when researching Washington’s view on abolition and the dialogue between authors. Collecting pieces of evidence in Washington’s texts is how François Furstenberg, history professor and author of Atlantic Slavery, Atlantic Freedom: George Washington, Slavery, and Transatlantic Abolitionist Network, presented this research article.
The well known quote “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger” was first accredited to a german philosopher and scholar named Friedrich Nietzsche in the 1800s. Since then, the phrase has been modified and used by countless figures such as scientists, researchers, and the world famous, country singer Kelly Clarkson. Amongst these people is a psychologist Dr. Mark Seery. In his 2010 study Whatever Doesn't Kill Us: Cumulative Lifetime Adversity, Vulnerability and Resilience (which appeared in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology), he determined this is indeed the case. In the study Dr. Seery claimed, “adverse experiences... foster subsequent resilience, with resulting advantages for mental health and well-being.”
Influenza was a deadly virus that killed millions of people around the world back in 1918. The virus of influenza has eight genes with no fix structure, and the segment structure can change the virus fragmentation endlessly. The virus is independent and can replicate rapidly once it gets into your lungs which can the air pathway and the infected person would drown in their own body. People with the virus can spread it by coughing, sneezing, and sometimes people might touch a surface which has the virus on it and touch their mouth or nose without properly washing it. The virus has eight genes.
Each person has the power to influence the world. David Brodwin (2015) in the article “Unsustainable America” describes the situation of American consumers toward sustainability compared with other consumers from other countries that are interested about this issue. Thus, Brodwin explains the reactions of the people in some countries about the sustainably produced. In fact the article has interesting points with cataleptic and objective tones, but the author has biased through the benefit for America.
