It's a land of snow and hokey where sunshine only breaks through when our national anthem is on, it’s Canada. Canadians are well adapted to hearing what other countries believe to be true about us, and while we're happy to take the “yes, we are very polite,” but we've had just enough of the incorrect stereotypes. So now, if you don't mind there, here are some true canadian stereotypes.

Milk is refreshing, muscle building, and nutritious. “Got milk?” uses this advertisement to get this point across. It consists of Taylor Swift, whose portrait is in the center of the ad, flirtingly leaning on her dark red guitar lined with a light tan rim. Her smooth pale face is slightly tilted to the right as she is seductively gazing into the camera with her starry brown eyes. She has a gentle, small, pearly white smile, which is adorned with the white stain of milk. She is wearing large hoop earrings, one of which is covered by her slight hand, leaning on her graceful neck, and a silk bracelet. Both are jewel studded and colored light brown to compliment her blondish tan spaghetti strap dress that matches her flowing slightly curly golden
Imagery is the use of the words and phrases that appeals to one or more of the five senses. The use of Ms. Esquivel imagery throughout the novel, helps the reader book Tita’s fiery vibrant emotions of the kitchen, food and her love for Pedro. “To keep from crying when to chop it(which is so annoying!), I suggest you placed a little bit on your head. The trouble with crying over an onion is that once the chopping gets you started the and the tears begin to well up, the next thing you know you just can’t stop” (pg. 5). This quote from the novel explains the reality of what can happen when a person with unprotected eyes cuts an onion. As i am reading this quote i can the tears that have actually happened to me before while chopping an onion. “But even that distance between herself and Pedro was not enough; she felt her blood pulsing, searing her veins. A deep flush suffused her face and no matter how she tried she could not find a place for her eyes to
In David Foster Wallace’s commencement speech “This Is Water” the main point he is trying to get across is to think differently than you are hard-wired to think. He uses multiple stories to show when and where to think differently. He introduces us to this concept with a short story about fish that aren’t aware that they are in water, except for one fish, and this confuses the other fish. He shares this story to point out that the most obvious things in life are the hardest to be aware of. For example, he tells a story about two guys in the Alaskan wilderness and neither of them would change their mind or try to understand the other one’s perspective on religion. Wallace tells this story to make the point that you shouldn’t be totally arrogant
“A Rose for Emily” is a unique short story that keeps the reader guessing even though its first sentence already reveals the majority of the content. William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” is the epitome of a work that follows an unconventional plot structure and a non-linear timeline, but this method of organization is intentional, as it creates suspense throughout the story. William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” follows an unusual plot structure, which creates an eccentric application of suspense to a short story.

To continue, she also uses details to demonstrate Walter and his dream by explaining what he exactly wants in life. She does this by explaining that he will “make a transaction...a business
In the essay, Mark Twain is saying that humans are the lowest of animals. Instead of evolving from lower species, human have descended from higher ones. “In order to determine the difference between an anaconda and an earl (if any) I caused seven young calves to be turned into the anaconda’s cage. The grateful reptile immediately crushed one of them and swallowed it, then lay back satisfied. It showed no further interest in the calves, and no disposition to harm them… The fact stood proven that the difference between an earl and an anaconda is that the earl is cruel and the anaconda isn’t….” (Twain 2). This is one example Twain uses to explain to the reader one of the reasons why he believes man is the lowest of animals. This example tells
The article written by Caroline Bird “College is a waste of time and money” (1975), in which she addresses that colleges are not made for everyone, and persuade students and parents take a second thought about spending their time and money in tuitions. The author implies that college sells their institution to convince them to prefer them from the other universities. As an example, in this essay I will describe the rhetorical appeals of Texas A & M University’s website sells technique.

Here at the Saratoga Springs chapter of NHS, we place tremendous value in the efforts of individuals to not only make a difference that they wish to see but also inspire others to do the same. With this in mind, it is my pleasure to introduce our guest speaker, Mr. Dave Brown. A graduate of Le Moyne University, Mr. Brown has become one of the most respected and highly regarded members of our Saratoga Springs Community.

In my experience in his United States History course, I saw Mr. Brown’s ability to connect with each of his students. Unique

I feel that Matts main point is that we are built to be in tight groups (tribes) but at the same time we want to connect with all sorts of different people and cultures. He tells us in his article that he went on a trip around the world and made dancing videos with the people he met and what he learned was that people wanted to feel connected. He touches on the topic on how we have a ancient way of thinking when it comes to the type of people we socialize with. He uses the words primate, tribe, primitive, and the phrase caveman brain to show us how we still act today despite those times being thousands of years ago. He gives examples on how were connected financially and by simply being human. Buying something like a piece of chocolate can
