Is hunting for sport (not food or survival) morally justified? At one point of time hunting was very crucial for survival but now some would say hunting is nothing more than a violent form of recreation that the majority of hunters do not need for subsistence. Those who support hunting may say it does more good than bad for economic reasons. Outsiders are more concerned with the pain and suffering and loss of life endured by the animals. A study conducted by a Yale professor concluded that 60% of Americans disapprove of sport hunting and about one-third of Americans favor a total ban on hunting (Achor 138). I believe hunting animals for sport and not for survival is completely wrong and should be illegal.
In their Introduction to the “They Say /I Say” book, Gerald Graff and Cathy Brikenstein strongly believe that their templates will improve the reader’s writing skills. Graff and Brikenstein insist that writing is just like an activity we are used to do continuously, and if we follow certain process, we improve our writing and “help [our] writing become more original and creative.” (11) The authors also added that writers must give the opposing argument (they say) and then comes the thesis, which “should always be a response to the arguments of others.” (4)

As I was reading Melissa Duffy’s “Inspiration, and Craig Vetter’s “Bonehead Writing,” I found myself connecting with Vetter’s paper more than Duffy’s. I found that the presentation in “Bonehead Writing” to capture my attention, and that Vetter’s feelings about writing was similar to my opinion on writing. Through his wording and humor, I think Craig Vetter wrote the best essay.
The first attempt and success to climb Mt. Everest occured in 1953. Since then, almost 4,000 people have been able to scale the mountain, but over 230 people have not been able to climb it successfully. There is a chance of accident or death when climbing this mountain or any dangerous activity. All people should should have the right to rescue services even if they knowingly put themselves at risk because there is always a chance of an accident happening, rangers are there to save people in danger, and there are rescue vehicles being produced to be used in case of an emergency.
Through John Duffy’s written works, he stated that Rush Limbaugh’s sexist comments were insults towards the Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke. John Duffy describes in a well-written manner how critical it is to have knowledge in having an opinion towards a certain topic and commenting about it in a structured format. John Duffy states that rhetoric has taken a turn into a negative path to where people do not care about what they say anymore to the public. John Duffy suggested that Rush Limbaugh was being sexist towards Sandra Fluke on public radio. We should be respectful of other people’s beliefs and or values, because if we have dissimilar opinions we need to be cautious in verbalizing those thoughts so that we do not offend others. John Duffy later states that rhetoric is being used in a negative way in news
I am writing this Rhetorical Reflection Memo to reflect on my experiences, readings, and works and examine how my skills have developed from past to present and how to further improve them in the future. Over the course of the term there have been four papers (this being the fifth) that have made me aware of both my strengths and weaknesses in writing: “Rhetorical Analysis”, “Analytic Summary”, “Literacy Narrative”, and “Summary Response”. I struggled the most writing the “Summary Response”, and had the most ease writing the “Literacy Narrative”, but with each paper I experienced some kind of difficulty that helped me learn about my own capabilities.
Imagine a meager, blonde haired boy with big blue eyes sitting on the floor just a foot away from the mammoth box television, eyes glued to the tv. Imagine that same boy running outside with a football equal in length with his arms, eluding and evading every imaginary defensive player to lead The Cougars to the National Championship Game. Thirteen years later I’ve realized I won’t lead the football team, but my love for the school remains.
In this portfolio, I have included my collection of assignments to showcase my writing abilities and how my writing skills have grown over the course of this semester. My best assignment is the Discipline Investigation and my second best is the Rhetorical Analysis. Although the RA was my second best assignment, I was able to learn valuable skills by deconstructing an article and identifying rhetorical appeals and strategies to find the author’s main purpose.

There are billions of people in our world — each unique with their own ideas and purposes. These thoughts are expressed through many varieties of hobbies and skills, such as creating music or solving complicated logarithms. In my eyes, however, the most expressive past time is writing. By putting pen to paper or fingers to keys, authors are able to manipulate both the spoken and written language in order to share important information and communicate one's feelings and emotions. In doing so, writers have the privilege of educating, informing, persuading, and entertaining their audience. It is not an effortless trade, however, for writing requires mastery of one's language and beliefs.
“Support Child Labour”, is an advertisement, which like the title states is one stating to support Child Labour. The point of view bought forth by the author(s) of the advertisement is one, which views child labour as something, which deserves to be looked highly upon. Using a serene yet unconcerned tone, this advertisement attempts to persuade its viewers to support Child Labour. This advertisement is one that appeared on the ABC’s program “The Gruen Transfer.” The advertisement is a fragment of a segment where advertising agencies attempt to “sell the unsellable’.
