Purchasing fast foods is entirely each individual’s decision, for no one is forcing them to buy those foods. They can always back away from and avoid junk food if they want to. Plus, suing fast food companies for making them overweight will not make them lose any fat, let alone escape obesity. Aside from overeating, there are several other factors that can make people obese, such as genetical factors, slow

Food deserts cause obesity specifically in poor communities of African Americans and Latinos. The government needs resolve the obesity epidemic caused by food deserts. In order to decrease the obesity rate in areas that lack supermarkets and have surplus of fast food restaurants, laws need to be put in place to deter fast food restaurants, educate people about eating healthy and make accessing healthy foods easier.
He also states that the government should allow the citizens to access their health care funds account to support his conclusion, that, people will be more responsible for their health if someone else isn 't paying for their health problems. However, Balko fails to to provide evidence for to support his claim. Even though the problem of obesity is important, the Shorthorn should not publish "What You Eat Is Your Business" because it poorly argued and not interesting. Radley Balko’s central claim is that the government should not interfere in public health and diet. According to him people have no incentive to maintain their health when public money funds health care.

Consumers can choose to live a healthy lifestyle by consuming organic products and avoid eating fast food. Not every product that is advertised on television and in newspapers is healthy for people and the only persons that can make a change is the customer. Choosing to eat in fast food restaurants is cheap and very convenient nowadays. Knowing that: farmers are being manipulated; fast food is being supported by the government and consumers always have the choice of living healthy people need to take a decision that will change their life.
One of the positive effects of food ads is that they educate consumers about new products that can help them improve their lives. Also, it helps the economy and increases the number of job openings. However, food ads do not affect people’s lives positively but, is harming their health instead. Children are being targeted by food ads all the time which confuses them about nutrition and usually ends up eating harmful food products. Opponents have stated that food ads have nothing to do with the increased rate of obesity and that
‘“It’s not reasonable to blame or cite one product,”’ she said, adding that the proposal, “produces a false sense of accomplishment in the fight against obesity”’ (Gross, p.g 2). In other words, banning the amount of soda that can be sold won’t solve many health problems as, obesity doesn’t originate from one source. The ban also implies that people won’t have to worry about obesity and other health crisis because they will presume that everything has been cured due to this one mandate. Not only does this mean that the ban doesn’t solve anything
Small changes happen often, quickly, and out-of-the-blue at times, and potentially can lead to a much larger picture. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell explains how change happens, using several types of evidence and rhetorical techniques such as, ethos, pathos, and logos. Gladwell argues that ideas and behavior tend to act like epidemics of infectious diseases. One small group of people can lead to major changes in society. Gladwell’s entire book is based on the central argument that something can reach a tipping point by following the Law of the Few, the Stickiness Factor, and the Power of Context.
The perception that “little things can make a big difference” motivated this reader to study Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point”. As a future advanced practice nurse, considering all options regarding quality care and safety for patients, whether big or small, can mean the difference between a healthy life or one that is limited. Intrigued by his metaphorical language, Gladwell compares variations to contagions and explains how ideas, manufactured goods, trends, and behaviors can thrive and grow like viruses as soon as it reaches its “Tipping Point”. Questions are scattered throughout this book, encouraging the reader to reflect and apply this same concept to personal circumstances.
Name: Jose Camarena Date: 27 April 2017 Period: 6 Book Title: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking Genre: Non-Fiction Author: Malcolm Gladwell Number of Pages: 245 pages Brief Summary and “Arrangement” of the Book: Written by Malcolm Gladwell, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking explores the mysterious nature of quick, fast decision making, and although many times it may come in handy, we really shouldn’t rely on it too much. Throughout his book, he presents the idea of thin slicing - cutting up pieces of small information and then clumping them together to get one discernable image or perspective. Being human, Gladwell in addition investigates the inherent biases and inclinations of humans everywhere when it comes down
Malcolm Gladwell’s book Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking is a book detailing what happens in a person’s brain as they make split-second decisions and judgements, and how they are not nearly as simple as they seem. Gladwell’s second book contains stories of several researchers, psychologists, and businesses, including John Gottman, a psychologist who has learned to determine whether a marriage will fail or survive in the next fifteen years after a mere thirty minutes of observation, and researcher Paul Ekman, who has spent years of his life dedicated to the art of “mind reading,” which is actually called thin slicing. Using this method, he takes what are called micro expressions and then is able to predict what a person is thinking or feeling. Gladwell’s book offered a plethora of interesting information on psychology.
Character is a variety of attributes including the existence of lack of virtues such as empathy, courage, fortitude, honesty, and loyalty, or of good behaviors or habits. Also in my opinion a big aspect of a person's character is what they do when nobody is watching them, who they really are. Morality is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between distinguished as proper and those that are improper. I think these two qualities were very impactful on my decision whether Captain Madwell’s actions were justified in the story. I believe that Captain Madwell was trying to do the honorable thing and relieve his friend of the horrible situation he was in.
