To them, dog meat carries an abundance of health benefits and is of high nutritional value. In fact, doctors may even prescribe dog meat to treat health ailments such as impotence and to improve circulation (Arnold, 2015). Yulin locals also believe that the consumption of dog meat during the annual summer solstice (day of festival) will bring about good luck and health (LinShi, 2014). Apart from the social functions of dog meat consumption in Yulin, many locals are also dependent on the income from the sale of dog meat for a livelihood. Ethnocentric critics will come to a judgement hastily without making impartial observations and secondary considerations of the functions that the dog
Foer’s article provides a sense of humor as well as personal stories to attempt to persuade his audience for the ethical treatment of animals along with his personal solution for his own health and the health of his family. On a differing take on the solution, “Escape from the Western Diet” by Michael Pollan provides the complete change of our diet and way of life based around cooking and eating meals. however creates a more powerful and logical argument against the “Western Diet” in his article, He uses a combination of his credibility from his publications on health and foods, evidence against the practices of the medical community, along with his solution to the issue of obesity to create an article that draws in audience’s emotions and rationale. Pollan’s strongest points in his article was the use of credibility and his ability to bring logic and reason to most of his points against medical society and the publics solution to obesity. Pollan comes in with a stronger
Like I said before, dogfighting is illegal in all 50 states but there are many places where it isn’t like Japan, Africa, Russia, and practiced widely in Latin America especially in Argentina and Peru. In America over 9,000 dogs die because of dogfights each year. A shocking case was when a famous football player, Michael Vick was caught dog fighting. He was born and raised in a place where dog fighting was the main sport so he was used to seeing it happen, but nobody thought he would actually participate in one. Michael Vick went to prison for 19 months.
Begging. Hoping that this time it’ll be different, that this time they’ll do something right and you’ll love them. You’re just like that, aren’t you, Rach? You’re a dog” (Hawkin 316). By representing Rachel as dog in his head, he was able to greatly insult her with little difficulty as well as make it easier for readers to understand how he feels about her without blatantly stating it.
Critiquing this phrase, I agree with footnote 9 and 10. Bierut (2007) “ as any working designer can tell you, commercial work is a bitch. If you do it for the awards, it is hard way to get them. If you do it fir the money, you have got every penny twice over”. If advertising a dog biscuit throw commercial was spotted to be for society or other cultural purpose then what made the dog biscuit have the consumer attention.
Breed-Specific Legislation (BSL) is a law that bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance, usually because they are perceived as “dangerous” breeds or types of dogs. BSL has targeted pit bulls for many years trying to ban them and will not address the fact that a dog of any breed can become dangerous when bred or trained to be aggressive. Some states have actually enacted BSL specifically to the owners of pit bulls in Denver (Pit). To this day, Denver still has the law, however, it continues to have significantly higher dog bite-related hospitalization rates than other counties (Pit). Ironic, right?
James Aunt Aune also said in the Literary Analysis of Animal Farm that “The general strategy of personification Orwell uses relies on a number of commonsense associations we have with certain animals.” Making a general survey of the book, it is not hard to find that the use of personification is throughout the whole book. Every animal in the book is personificated. They can talk like a human being, build windmill like a human being and fight like a human being. But, what’s more important, they have the same mind as human beings: they can play tricks, they can betray others, they can fabricate others and they can issue orders to other animals and act like the dominator of the farm. In the first chapter of the novella, Old Major held a committee that he hoped to drive away the former owner of the farm.
Overpopulation causes a lack of food leading to animals starving, and animals suffer more this way than by getting shot. This situation can be prevented by having a set number of animals that can be shot every year and regulates the ecosystem. Furthermore, when an individual buys a hunting license the proceeds are returned to the states to support wildlife. Some of the money goes towards recruiting biologists, paying wardens, and maintain wildlife habitats (Howard). This allows for ethical hunters to continue to enjoy the land.
Instead of being comprised of mostly fillers, the gourmet varieties are made from items such as beef, veal, chicken, and lamb. If you look at the main ingredients in your every day dog food, you will find that corn meal, corn, wheat, oats, or rice is the main ingredient. While these are not bad for your pet, they won’t provide him or her with the nutrients that they need to live, grow, and maintain good health throughout life. Feeding Your Dog Gourmet Dog Food Many people assume that the cute dog eating gourmet food must be one that is spoiled and lives in a home where the people have excess amounts of money, but this isn’t necessarily true. You may find that gourmet dog food is just a bit more costly than the food that you are currently buying.
John Bunker is a person who always pay attention to details. In the article, the author used ethos to describe that John said that “It is about apples and it is not about apples. It is about our agricultural heritage.” (Jacobsen 62). The use of ethos makes audiences think that how important John treats apples are. It is also help the author creates a high credibility to audiences and audiences also feel more truly about the article.
Quoting Wal-Mart, Mr. Holt-Gimenez explains, “If you’ve always lived near a grocery store, or fresh market, here’s something you’ve probably never considered: There are neighborhoods across the United States where it is nearly impossible to find fresh produce. These places are called ‘Food Deserts’ and Walmart is committed to removing them from our communities” (525). Access to fresh, high-quality food is a major factor in today’s obesity problem and the reason why lower income individuals suffer from higher obesity. Lower income residents, often with no access to transportation other than the public system, are at the mercy of the food offerings that are within a few blocks from their home. With no grocery stores or fresh markets around, their choices are limited to fast, low-quality take out or pre-packaged foods void of any nutritious value.
USDA has repeatedly purchased meat from companies that have been involved in major bacterial outbreaks. A handful of children have been sickened because of this. To make matters even worse, the USDA buys the cheapest meat it can get, leaving the meat highly susceptible to having harmful diseases and pieces of bones. Even fast-food restaurants have higher meat standards than the National School Lunch Program ((NSLP)USDA provides the meat for the NSLP). Lastly, chapter nine notifies people that kitchen sinks aren’t as clean as they may think.
Morgan Spurlock, an American Independent Filmmaker embarked on an experiment of eating only McDonalds for thirty days. He documented his findings in a documentary titled “Supersize Me” As a result, Spurlock gained nearly twenty-five pounds, and his body mass increased almost fifteen percent. The reason behind Spurlock’s investigation was to identify the problem with our countries rise in obesity, largely contributed to a lack of fresh and healthy food being available. Obesity is an epidemic plaguing our country ever so quickly and one of the biggest reasons for it is many communities don’t have access to fresh food, and in many times that food if available exceeds the families budget. The United States Department of Agriculture (1) defines
In the United States alone, 40% of food gets wasted. Robert Lee is a person who was taught not to waste food and understands what it feels like to be hungry. He is a hero by many people because he helps reduce food waste and reduce the amount of hunger all in one non profit organization called Rescuing Leftover Cuisine. The non profit organization has collected tons of food and donated to local shelters. For example, “...the group has rescued 100,000 pounds of food and delivered it to homeless shelters and food kitchens,”(Beasley 1).The organization, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, has saved a lot of food and fed a lot of hungry people.
