Well, dummy! - waiting for you to say a few words!They wanted something hot”. Wolfe uses hot not as a temperature, but he uses them in a context of rareness and specials, because ones who traveled from Mars back to Earth always got some information that everybody want to hear and that there are only a few of our humans have traveled to the universe, in which is the reasons that some individuals risk their lives for this kind of fame, where people, reporters are all up to their faces waiting for their
In the novel, The Martian, a central theme of the power of human altruism remains a key role as the main, behind-the-scenes driving factor within the story.

On top of this, the presence of altruism within each character persists throughout the entire book, from beginning to end. From the beginning of the novel, several instances of human altruism already begin to appear.
“It’s amazing how people can get so excited about a rocket to the moon and not give a damn about smog, oil leaks, the devastation of the environment with pesticides, hunger, disease. When the poor share some of the power that the affluent now monopolize, we will give a damn.” This quote shows that people did not care about their community but he did, and he did something about it. Harriet Tubman helped slaves by returning again and again to the South to guide fugitive slaves gain their freedom. She did it to save people and to make the world better.
Herblock makes a perfect attempt on unmasking the negative and poor side of a worldwide victory and success, this proves those coming together (around the world) for a worldwide “phenomenon” but when bigger issues shown in his cartoon, examples of more significant things than the moon landing, in which many are unaware of the issues. To add, one of the first articles, like “Man on the Moon” written by The Times talks about insignificance of the moon landing when it mostly discussed about rocks, a technique of sarcasm, mockery. America misused their money on the highly glorified event shows that those
Alternatively, "A Sound of Thunder" has a serious sort of feel to it. They get straight to the point, and it casts a shadow over the story. When Eckels was paying for the trip and talking to the guy at the desk he was worried about his life assurance "'Don't I get some kind of document promising that I will come back alive?' ' We promise nothing,' said the official, 'except the dinosaurs'" (Bradbury). The evidence that tells him they cannot guarantee that he will come back to the future alive shows a straightforward nature right from the get-go.
Reagan applies oratorical devices and figurative language to explain to the nation the passion and bravery the seven astronauts have. He uses parallel structure and listing to imply the passion and bravery the Challenger crew have. “But, we never lost an astronaut in flight, we’ve never had a tragedy like this” (2). The parallel structure creates a cause and effect to the tragedy. Its shocking devastation, however, it shows the nation how the future is creating new things.

The speech accomplished what it was after because NASA got a man on the moon in 1969, but JFK never got to see the event. Even though he never saw the event, any speech can be compared to his “We Chose to go to the Moon” because every speech has a purpose and uses rhetorical components in some way that benefits the speaker. Pathos, ethos, and logos were used so that the audience gets the speaker what he/she wants. That was the same as what Kennedy did through his speech. At the end of the speech Kennedy again, talks about how people spent money on tobacco products instead of the space program.
I loved to serve the people. I had this crazy idea of volunteering myself into a manned mission to space --- to make it sound more awesome --- to Mars.

It’s easy to be able to ignore somebody’s feelings, but it is difficult to step up and share the feelings of another. Empathy is the idea of doing just that and understanding one’s feelings. Harper Lee symbolizes empathy in many different ways throughout her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. In Lee’s novel, many characters are affected by the theme of empathy, but the characters that experience it the most are Jem when he tells Scout not to harm the insect, Scout when she shows affection for Mrs. Dubose, and Tom when he shows affection for Mayella even when she accuses him of rape. The person that it was hardest for was Tom Robinson judging that he is a negro man.
