It can be argued that the economic achievements of the Gilded Age looked different from the eyes of a shop floor worker, compared to the eyes of a corner office business owner. Thomas O’Donnell, a textile worker, gives a testimony before the U.S.Senate about the hardships workers during the Gilded Age go through. Factory workers knew that profits meant low wages, long hours, and frequent unemployment, while their employer would attain large sums of money and power. Thoma O’Donnell explains to Senator Blair that wage workers only had jobs as they were hired and how workers were often fired and then replaced by machines of other workers that could do the labor cheaper. O’Donnell goes on to explain to Senator Blair that men with boys were often hired first because the man’s son could act as a “back-boy” and only be paid $.30 to $.40 a day.
When writing about a sensitive topic, it is important to understand the topic so that the behaviors of the characters can be appropriately displayed. Mark Haddon denies writing about Asperger’s while having no knowledge of it. The book cover “identifies him as an autistic savant, but Christopher tells us all we need to know about his condition without reference to medical terminology” (McInerney) The book jacket labels Christopher as autistic, although he does not want to be specified under a `disorder. Christopher recognizes that he is different from normal people, and his brain works by numbers and he does not fully understand emotions. Although, Christopher never specifies having a disorder.
As such, while Mike’s lack of financial resources would validate Merton’s theory of anomie and strain, it does not account for the variability of factors such as race that are erroneously applied to people of marginalized racial and ethnic groups. It was like Jameel was guilty simply because of his
She reveals that there were other people who tried to help Tom, even though the outcome was unfavorable for them. Even though this could’ve given Tom an advantage, there was no possible outcome that would’ve been in Tom’s favor. When Scout asks him why he already knows why Tom won’t win the trial, Atticus immediately says, “Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started” (Lee 78). Atticus knew that even with all of the advantages Tom could receive, there would be no way to win the trial. Due to the other testimonies, along with Bob Ewell’s tough, cruel reputation, Tom was pre-destined to be declared guilty, never having a chance to present his testimony to an unbiased
The article was written very well but I do find some faults with it. He did not provide statistics for all of the examples, maybe because they didn 't support his claim or it didn 't make him look completely right. It also seems that he did not explain the examples about 401(k) and ¨no fault¨ insurance well enough. He also reference all of the examples more than once, except those two. I feel that he should have left out those examples, because it just confuses the reader.
Another flaw which causes the ineffectiveness of his article is his weak arguments. Although his arguments may be true, the depth he goes into to explain his thoughts are slim which causes suspicions to raise at the truth behind his arguments. For example, Rosenfeld writes about different health laws in California, the UK, and Australia and although his information is valid the brief description he provides is not a sufficient amount of evidence for readers to know if what he has stated is true or not. Along with his brief description, he has no sources to back up what he is stating. Upon research I conducted myself, I found that Rosenfeld was indeed truthful in his attempt to persuade his readers into believing his argument but again with how brief and weak his argument is, it causes his essay to become ineffective in persuading his
With this, less hand movements throughout would have been less distracting, thus allowing the audience to focus more on his arguments instead. Other than these two suggestions, there is a problem with the lack of content as well. Mittelberg failed to address the infamous Roe vs. Wade court case that legalized abortion nor the cases of those seeking abortion due to rape or incest. Mittelberg did not explicitly acknowledge that abortion is legal and there is not much that can change that. While he did acknowledge and refute three very common and fundamental myths about abortion, there were many lingering questions that pro-choicers would have asked.
They brag about their many talents and accomplishments, leaving the person on the other end of the conversation feeling that worn out from listening to the same thing over and over again. Fortunately, there are people who do not excessively brag about their latest achievements. They simply know what they have done, and they leave it at that. Beowulf was most like the latter. In Beowulf, there was no evidence spotted that seemed to imply that Beowulf went around boasting about the monsters that he had killed and replaying the events over and over again until people had begun to wish that he had not scored a victory over the monsters.
Employers all over the world, be it public or private sector, lose countless man-hours to employees partaking in personal time. Employers usually pay their workers an hourly rate. If the workers spend half their time chatting on Facebook or texting their loved ones instead of working, the amount of money lost daily becomes astronomical. Airman Jones is a social butterfly. The first thing when she comes into work in the morning is to open her Microsoft Outlook and the Air Force Portal Instant Messenger program.
Other jurors based the fact that the accused lived in a slum and that slum residents are delinquents by nature. The results of these informal practices only proved that the accused wasn't guilty because the arguments were not valid enough to incriminate him. Leadership did emerge differently from a small group setting because a designated leader should not let a group member overtake his position. So Juror #8 as a initiator should have never tried to take the position of Juror #1. But it was needed for him to do that so that the group could reach into a correct decision.
