Today our world is up 24 hours a day. It is transparent with blogs and social networks broadcasting the buzz of a whole new generation of people who have made a choice to live their lives out in the public. It is astonishing that on any given day people lie to us about 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lies are subtle and counterintuitive. In her speech, How to spot a liar, Pamela Meyer presents some insight into the science behind why we lie, whom we lie to, and most importantly, how to seek out the truth and develop trust. Furthermore, she adds that over-sharing is not honesty and that our manic tweeting and texting can blind us from the subtleties of human decency, character, and integrity.

He elaborates on psychologist Henry A. Murray’s research on fifteen particular appeals that are most common in advertisements. Murray’s research concludes that consumers have needs that they react to in ads. For example, the need for sex is common but used very rarely because it’s very controversial and diminishes the product information. It appeals more to men than woman; the need for affiliation is used because Americans are very concerned about social life and friends; McDonald’s tell people that they “deserve a break” to be able to escape. Fowles also depicts how to examine commercials. He attests that the most ideal path is to figure out how to “ignore the product information and one’s own feelings about the product” (75). Knowing who the focused on purchasers are and the survey edge the crowd has is likewise critical in examining commercials. Fowles presumes that passionate interests in commercials work since they get the gathering of people 's consideration and persuade them that they have to purchase the item being sold. Ads appeal to both men and women, in fifteen different
Most people tend to believe that lying is a way of life, that without it the whole world could crumble and fall. While some tend to believe that any form of lying is a sin and there should be consequences. One author, Stephanie Ericsson, wrote “The Ways We Lie” published in 1993 she talks about how we all lie, it has become an everyday chore to make life easier. She begins by trying to strengthen the bond between the reader and writer showing how they are one of the same. She does this by referencing past experiences, adding informed opinions, and using quotes from other well acknowledged authors, her argument is strong throughout the whole article that lying isn’t just evil, it can be used for good when used the right way.
Doritos were first introduced in 1968 by Frito-Lays. From 1968 until now Doritos have used many advertisements to promote their product.

Most Shocking Second a Day Video it is based on a little girl’s life change. This visual argument shows how in an exact year a Syrian girl’s life completely falls apart because of the war.

With the alarming number of smokers, agencies spend billions of dollars every year on anti-smoking advertisements. Anti-smoking agencies enlighten audiences of the negative consequences of smoking and try to persuade them to stop. The visual I chose to analyze is a commercial engendered by an anti-smoking agency called Quit. The advertisement, “quit smoking commercial” shows a mother and a son walking in a busy airport terminal. Suddenly, the mother abandons the child, and after he realizes he is alone, he commences to cry. At the end, a sticker appears that says quit and gives the logo and the website of the antismoking company that engineered the ad. The commercial utilizes rhetorical appeals to draw the audience in, then persuade them to stop smoking.

His son comes with his Audi R8 and he gives the car keys to his dad to drive it. He becomes happy and excited and it makes him relive his time as an astronaut. The commercials purpose was to promote the Audi R8 car. Watching the commercial, the intended audience for an adult man with a son. I say that because the main character’s are an old man and his son. This commercial instills values like the past meaning reliving what you loved and also family. It’s not effective because it doesn’t use the Rhetorical Appeals like Ethos and Logos but, it does include Pathos which makes it somewhat good.

Advertising is a form of propaganda that plays a huge role in society and is readily apparent to anyone who watches television, listens to the radio, reads newspapers, uses the internet, or looks at a billboard on the streets and buses. The effects of advertising begin the moment a child asks for a new toy seen on TV or a middle aged man decides he needs that new car. It is negatively impacting our society. To begin, the companies which make advertisements know who to aim their ads at and how to emotionally connect their product with a viewer.
