Also, the convincing side was sort of a constraint because I had to pursuade them otherwise. Rhetorical Situation 2 When I was in debate class, I had to debate over a topic and convince the audince to how I was right and how my opponents were wrong. My team used clear arguments and we pointed out errors in our opponents arguments, so we ended up winning the debate. This rhetorical situation was most likely logos because we were logically explaining our arguments and using facts to get people to agree with us. Exigence: My team was motivated to do well and to sway the audience over to our side.
When thinking back to how the mind starts controlling you I think back to my situation and how I immediately started judging that person without even thinking of what they are going through. I couldn't stop the judgements from coming in my head because my day was already off to a bad start. Just because Wallace wasn't able to control his mind from these thoughts doesn't mean I won't be able to as well but in fact I will keep trying. I won't let the comments control my mind but instead my own power will control what I think and
The sheer ruthlessness of the punishments discourage any sort of crime as they will scare the citizens into never breaking the law in fear of the consequences. The document “Crime and Punishment in the Elizabethan Era” also points out that the law was flexible and could be applied differently based on the situation. When a person was convicted of treason, they were not always executed immediately. Some were inhumanely tortured for more information to see if they were working with others, despite the obvious lack of morality in doing this, it worked. However, on the other hand, the Elizabethan Law did have at least some moral sense to it as people some were spared from torture, and even execution in certain circumstances.
Implications: When we only view conflict in a negative way we often damage the change that we have to resolve the differences in an approach that could have been effective (Weeks, 1994, 4). Different definitions on conflict can result in a fear of conflict. In my experience, never have I thought that conflict could be positive. My only thoughts about it was fighting and disagreements and relationships being shattered. Looking at this definition some people will avoid conflict in order to maintain the peace (Weeks, 1994, 19).
“One of life's most painful moments comes when we must admit that we didn't do our homework, that we are not prepared.” I must say right now that I agree with Merlin Olsen. We are striving to work against vortex drag, but we are tending to exchange one problem for another. So far to reduce vortex drag we have to have longer more narrow wings, yet this sacrifices maneuverability. So I say it is time for us to do a bit more homework and cut away this
I picked these paragraphs because it is when the reader is introduced to the dysfunction in Sarah and Edwards relationship. I was very anxious upon reading. I tried my best to have a clear, loud voice and to go slow so I would not rush through and poorly express what I was trying to get across. I found it challenging, however, to determine a tone that I wanted to portray because I was not reading dialogue. I did however try to express an annoyance in my tone when I read the following sentence as I interpreted Sarah being annoyed of Edward, "[i]t wouldn't be so bad if he didn't insist on dragging her into everything" (Atwood, par.7).
Most times, when someone vehemently disagrees with my opinion, I easily write the person off and just take my view as the better interpretation, but yet the saying, two heads are better than one, comes into play. That person might have had more experiences than me on such matters and have been through more situations pertaining to the topic that would allow them to have a better reasoning than I do. Sometimes, it is hard for me not to be biased on my own opinions from my experiences, and hopefully I can look at a viewpoint from not just my angle but through other people’s eyes to come to a better and more intellectually desired
Processing Trauma and Its Benefits to Society Often overlooked in conversations is trauma due to the uncomfortable nature of the subject. People for the most part will not bring the subject up in fear of upsetting someone, however, trauma is important to bring up and to learn from. Processing trauma and thus connecting and sympathizing with others can be humbling and eye-opening. Shared with others are stories to reflect on the past and to potentially prevent it from further traumatic events. If one forgets where they came from the traumatic experience can be repeated.
They would also go as far as spreading rumors or just wanting to confront the pemeson with intentions on hurting them. This was somewhat similar to how members of my family resolved conflict because they both used defensiveness and argumentation. Neither tried to find ways to come to an understanding or mutual agreement. This hasn't had a great deal of affect on how I resolve conflict. Although, I have become more so aggressive when it comes to conflict because, from what I've seen, the more aggressive you become the more respect you tend to get.
“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”- Suzy Kassem. In Daniel Keyes novel, Flowers for Algernon, the protagonist Charlie Gordon chooses to undergo a controversial experiment in order to become smart. This is not something that would be accepted in the medical community today. Due to the implications behind the theory from doctors and professors saying that it will have a negative effect in individuals with the vast amount of intellect would be scared people that follow a religion in today's society, therefore the experiment Charlie went through goes against everything they believe in and what they are. The experiment that Charlie is going through does not go along with the legal system as the legal system is against this because they don't want people
This documentary opened my eyes to many of the things that occur in my own country. I knew that politicians were looking for a way to use the resources that we have here in our own country instead of having to buy them from others, but I would have thought they would have done it while in the best interest of the people. Before watching this documentary, I was not familiar with natural gas or any of the processes that it takes to make it. I just knew that it was an efficient energy source. With any resource that we remove from the earth, we risk hurting people and many other things in the process.
This paper was probably one of the hardest paper I had to write just because I felt like I was on my own. I was scared at first but i felt like this helped me learn how to properly look and analyze a speech or a writing in general. One way this helped was I highlighted what I thought was a rhetorical device and I had to properly analyze it and see what he/she is trying to accomplish through his or her writing. One thing that I still need practice on is explaining how the techniques the author uses workes for what they are trying to accomplish. The only way I can get better at this is by re-reading previous papers we worked with or just asking for help or clarification.
I must admit this took a lot of work, however through time and practice it has become easier for me to communicate my emotions to my coworker and supervisor. Sometimes I noticed my kindness would be overly used. But implementing these strategies have helped me with solving this problem. In regards to judgment versus choice, being able to make risky decision and weighing my sanity versus judgment can result in isolation (Weber & Johnson, 2009). Often many choices can be communicated and order to make a decision and avoid judgment (Weber & Johnson,
Fahrenheit 451 Theme Analysis Sir Francis Bacon once said, “ipsa scientia potestas est” or “knowledge is power” and we often say this to encourage education amongst others. However, the power and knowledge struggle in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a prevalent theme in the book. For example, books and other forms of entertainment of similar substance are banned and even burned regularly because of this. Also, many people (because they don’t know) are unwilling to learn and even go as deep as to fear them. The public fears knowledge of this capacity because the government makes them afraid, but the government is no different- they also fear an educated public that have opinions and to a large extent, free will.
I do not know a lot about these Halfway Houses, but I did get a basic understanding of what their purpose is. Just from doing some basic preliminary research I am finding more negatives than positives because halfway houses are only effective if they are ran the correct way. Furthermore, it takes a lot of self-discipline from the owner and the people participating. Hopefully, I can find more statistics about people who have gone through these halfway houses and read about their personal experiences. Also, I want to find out more is the cost examples being does it cost more in the beginning and pay off in the long run?
