To somewhat contradiction and agreement, Sacks states "some areas of the visual cortex may be reallocated and used to process sound and touch"(Sacks,330). In contrast to Johnson, it is clear that the pacemaker, our brain, allows the visual cortex to reallocate to heighten other senses, which allows the blind people to adjust their new way of life. However, to some extent, Sacks statement bolsters Johnson's case that self-organizing system is a very complex system, just like the complex structure of our brain, which acts as a pacemaker for us. The complexity of a structure is indeed dependent on how efficiently each component is able to carry out its functions, and structures which are deemed complex have different components which it is dependent upon to perform its functions. The idea of pacemaker itself cannot be disregarded in the making of

The Better Business Climate model undermines unions and makes this worse for workers. When unions are strong, they can bargain and win better wages, working conditions, and benefits. Also, according to the Jobs, Wealth, Income, and Our Future Handout, as unions decline, the middle class disappears. With no middle class, there is just the upper class and the lower class, which means great income and opportunity gaps. Therefore, according to the same handout, the top 1% has accumulated nearly 40% of America’s wealth.

Harrison Bergeron was still a genius, and George Bergeron was still a smart person. The Handicapper General really didn’t make anyone equal. He just made life worse for everyone, and he attempted to take away people’s talents and strengths that God gave them. Although no one was ever truly equal in Harrison Bergeron, people still had difficult lives, and people were not able to use what God gave
Distractibility is the quality of being liable to distraction, being unable to concentrate or to produce sustained attention. Distractibility refers to how easily, or not so easily, things going on around us disrupt our thought processes and attention. Some people are highly distractible, noticing every sight and sound around them; therefore it is not surprising that some people struggle daily to focus on a certain task. When working on a task, they are often side-tracked and have a difficult time paying attention. Distraction can impair productivity and increase the risk of accidents (Wallace and Vodanovich, 2003).

When given the choice people tend to choose happiness over depression or a comedy over a tragedy. It is rarely acknowledged that, “ ‘Negative’ moods summon a more attentive, accommodating thinking style that leads you to really examine facts in a fresh and creative way” (David 125).

This lack of motivation allows for more time between the formation of an idea and the execution. Negative emotions allow for more time to consider audacious action and more rational thinking that includes many more factors than just being happy.

He also mentions that Americans are overall unhappy. McKibben states, “There have been steady decreases in the percentage of Americans that say their marriages are happy, that they are satisfied with their jobs, that they find a great deal of pleasure in the place they live” (35 McKibben).

Our main goal should be finding other ways to increase our happiness such as spending time with our families and friends, working fewer hours, and appreciating what we have.

Boorstin believes that technology is fun and is helpful to society, but technology can be overused and can take over our knowledge, which can take over our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Nowadays most people prefer reading online rather than reading a print book, which has changed our society today in numerous helpful, yet hazardous ways.

Side 2 argument 2. A study from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland found that although low-income workers see wage increases when the minimum wage is raised, "Their hours and employment decline, and the combined effect of these changes is a decline in earned income.” They could be getting more money but then their employer might cut their hours. They would be getting paid less money since they are getting less hours to work for. 2 side argument 2 60% of small-business owners say that raising the minimum wage will "hurt most small-business owners," according to a 2013 Gallup poll. Higher wages would make small business go out of business because they would need to pay the workers more, when they might not be making a lot of money because they are already a small business.
