Obama uses this to talk about the college that was built to help support and make young, black men to succeed in their dreams. The most effective rhetorical appeal is pathos which is used to persuade all the young men, who still has a heart as pure one 's child, to pursue and never give up on their dreams, which America was built on golden ideas. This can be seen when Obama says, “. .but his education at Morehouse helped to forge the intellect, the discipline, then compassion…”(Obama 3). 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.
In the movie Simon Birch, we learn many aspects from the main character relating to our SPIES unit. The Main character Simon Birch was born the smallest baby of Grapeville in recorded history. When he was born, the doctors believed Simon would only be alive for days or a weeks at maximum, because of a undersized heart. Mr and Mrs. Birch didn’t care for Simon and carried on in their normal daily lives. Believing their son would pass away.
At first glace you believe Bennett identifies as a person with Tourette’s, since it is a huge part of his life, but that is not the case. Carl identifies as a brilliant surgeon, pilot, and loving father and husband. Comparably, Waverly is believed to be a closed off, rude, and stubborn individual. But as you dig deeper and get to know the characters you realized these are not their identities but just a top layer to who they really are. Both Bennett and Waverly don’t know where they are really from.
I am no exception. History, for example, focuses on the male point of view. There are little to no important female historical figures that are mentioned in text books, and depending on the teacher, the curriculum. My parents, who are both divorced were also treated differently. Both were low on money in the beginning, but my father was considered a hardworking man as he struggled to find a job with a suitable pay, while my mother was told to "get it together" while she job hunted.
A well written and effective speech cannot just be spit out, it has to be developed using vital rhetorical devices to help the speaker make his point and achieve what he wants. Rhetorical devices give the speaker the ability to connect to the audience, get his point across, and give the audience a sense of who he is. President John F. Kennedy was aware of these basic tactics and included them in his speech to have it delivered to it’s fullest. When Kennedy was writing his opening commentary regarding the price increase of steel, he wanted it to not only have it fulfill its effectiveness, but to also be memorable for all those that heard and read it. President Kennedy made the nation feel as one in his commentary, he made everyone feel as though they were all on the same page in regards to the issue of the price increase of steel.
Being quiet, he generally goes unnoticed and does not really have any friends. (Represented from Chapter 1-8) Izods life before Port Arthur was great. He was the youngest in his family, and was able to run free. He went to school too. But disastrously, his father’s crops failed, so Izod had to work hard to help.
Gilbreth is caring but is precautious about the time that he spends and wants to record all of his and his family's data. This is a great trait in leading a successful life with work and family. To prove this, in the passage it says that, “Every child old enough to write - and Dad expected his offspring to start writing at a tender age - was required to initial the charts in the morning after he had brushed his teeth, taken a bath combed his hair, and made his bed.” It also says that “I can save forty-four seconds,” he grumbled, “but I wasted two minutes this morning putting this bandage on my throat.” These quotes from the passage “Cheaper by the Dozen,” explains the personalities of Mr. Gilbreth. It shows that he is cautious about his timing but cares a lot about his
My family taught me that hard work pays off in the right time. I never understood those words and I still trying to figure out what that phrase really means. Everyone works hard for some reason like family, dreams, and goals in life. My father is a hard working man, and he works for his family. Furthermore, in the short story of “Shout” made me remember about the first job that my dad got in the United States.
Not only did McCandless come from a well-off family, but they were educated too; Chris was no exception of course: “[Chris] had distinguished himself as a history and anthropology major with a 3.72 grade-point average” (16). Just given this information, one could readily question why McCandless would give that all up on some dangerous adventure, but Krakauer includes some important information about Chris. He points out that Chris found that “titles and honors are irrelevant” (16). Although brief, this is a large hint of McCandless’ frustration with society. McCandless also wasn’t motivated by such distinications and lacked, seemingly, a true purpose in his life.
From the past, he was not a true Oxford man as “[he] only stayed for five months”(129). He did not come from the old money or a wealthy family because “his parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people” (98), but his struggle against poverty was what made him exceptional. Instead of discouraging him, his living conditions sparked the desire and pursuit of personal success. With the creation of his daily schedules which was divided into his well organized routine and “general resolves” (173), he has proved his potential for greatness because he predetermined the ways to success, which was constant self-improvement. He knows the limit of his capabilities and has a strong sense of self.
A lot goes into the drafting of a college recruit: size, speed, intangibles, position, skill level and so on and so fourth. All of these important descriptions are calculated by a scout that works for an NFL organization to bring in the best young talent. The scout that a team will hire must be extremely talented in measuring the true potential a college player can have in the NFL which means that in order to have a team be considered a dynasty power house the scout you employ must be decorated and have a good track record in bringing in young talent. Hiring the right scout can be the difference in bringing in the next Tom Brady or messing up and drafting the next Ryan Leaf. Scouts are helped by the league because of the annual NFL scouting combine that is held each year to measure the capabilities of all the young recruits waiting to hear their name be called on draft day.
JROTC will remain vitally important well into the future. When war no longer threatens there will still be a need for leaders to, as Kennedy said, “explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.” The future will require leaders to fight different types of struggles, against global problems like poverty, hunger, oppression, and climate change. JROTC continues to mold young men and women to not only be aware of these problems, but capable and courageous enough to come up with and apply solutions. With what I have learned through JROTC, I am now part of a legacy of leadership. I am proud to wear the uniform, and I intend to honor it by helping change the world for the
