Virginia Hefffernan wishes to make the public aware of the damaging effects of constants use of headphones and how it is negatively effecting the young generations hearing drastically in her New York Times article, “The Argument Against Headphones.” The author realizes the vast population who wear headphones are unaware of its damaging effects both physically and on the social aspect. Heffernan hopes that with the information provided in this article, people will limit their use of headphones in the future. Who Heffernan is addressing in the article can be confusing at first. Of course she is addressing headphone users, but one may think the author is address the teenagers who most primarily use them.
The disease redrew her personal sketch, becoming something though physically lacking, yet resilient beyond comparison. By combining rhetorical strategies with rhetorical appeals, Mairs presents herself in a way that invokes an emotional response from the reader. After losing the ability to operate her legs properly, Mairs begins to declare herself a “cripple”. She proclaims this knowing people cringe whenever someone is called a cripple.
Clinical Diagnosis Sally presents with preoccupation of how she perceives her skin to appear and focuses on improving the defects she sees by picking. Sally’s repetitive picking behaviors are made worse by stress at her job where she is required to be in front of many people who may see what she perceives as defects; this leads to missed days from work due to her wanting to hide her skin from others. Because of her high expectations for herself Sally is constantly worrying over her career, appearance, family, and future relationships causing her to be restless and have muscle tension. Sally is presenting with comorbid Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
Cambri McDonald The writer argues that John Doe's letter to the Statesman editor is constantly changing its statements for the readers to be able to agree that girls look "stupid" in knitted headbands. The narrative often changes from "you" to "we" and reverts back and forth so it confuses the readers to acknowledge what John Doe is arguing. I think mostly the writer was rhetorically making critiques about his writing, and how it made the argument less professional and undermined the statements about headbands and unprofessional clothes like sweats. John Doe was using wrong tenses, making grammatical errors, and making mistakes on simple words like flip-flops.
In addition, his dissatisfying slurs about Nurse Ratched’s body made him look like a terrible human being. Next, when McMurphy slammed his hand twice through the Nurses’ Stations glass he made a dangerous situation that should and was reprehensible. Lastly, with McMurphy’s indiscretions, Nurse Ratched had to make the safe decision by turning the other patient's opinions against McMurphy’s trip. The ultimate message was to portray that sometimes with the mentally ill there are right times when harsh, strict, and orderly rules enforced by someone who is strong is a good
Here the use of the words “had to” shows that she has been oppressed to an extent where she does not see any other solutions than quitting her job even though it would probably have consequences for her. Later on in the passage, she says: “When I heard Mrs. Cullinan scream, ‘Mary!’ I picked up the casserole and two of the green glass cup in readiness”. In this sentence, the reader is able to sense how Mrs. Cullinan is deliberately calling the author Mary while the use of the quotation and exclamation point indicates that the author wants to emphasize that it is this specific action which Marguerite feels offended by. The word “readiness” also implies that Marguerite has been planning to drop the glasses and does so deliberately well-knowing the consequences as it is Mrs. Cullinan’s “favorite piece”.
In the book ‘Wintergirls” the main character Lia is forced to deal with hate throughout the entire book. These hateful words use to insult Lia are said by her peers, family, friends and even by herself. The insult she is called begin to shape who she is. For my project I drew Lia as the words she has been called to show how she metaphorically is the hate she is faced with. A lesson that can be learned by this book is that everything you say has a consequences.
She describes the emotions that she felt by comparing herself to Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird (Stockett 414). This comparison is likely to be made because people are afraid of what is unknown, so they create false stories or spread comments of hate thus adding to the ignorance which is being passed down as if it were a family tradition. Eugenia had also been avoiding these people as though she was frightened by their way of rejecting people and being unaccepting to change. Eugenia uses this hatred as motivation and perseveres through meeting with the help and working on her book. The only way the lives of others will change for the better is if Eugenia seeks self-improvement and others follow in her footsteps of
The purpose of the use of classification is to better prove the notion that men and women think differently especially when it comes to those seven subjects. This device is very helpful for the reader as it divides subjects for further understanding and gives the reader a sense of author
There are a couple of more arguments whereas the author doesn't support it properly. “Feminism might have expanded our idea of what a women can do and be, but failed to expand our definition”(Scott), the writer doesn't explain himself properly nor does he give examples to defend its arguments. As the reader starts reading the paragraphs and gets more into it, instead of the first sentence telling you what the argument is about, instead, you'll see numbers of different arguments. Therefore, making it ineffective. On the other hand, the author of “Girl power has lifted women up but failed men” uses some
In the articles,"Posture Affects Standing and Not Just the Physical Kind" by Jane E.Brody and in,"Your iPhone is Ruining Your Posture-and Your Mood ' by Amy Cuddy, both Cuddy and Brody give valid able arguments on everyday things we do that can affect our health. I think that both arguments are well thought out and written to the best of the authors literate skills. Brody 's argument is based off of how posture affects your mood in everyday life. Then there 's Cuddy who believes that it 's technology that makes us hunch. Both of these are arguments that have to do with one thing and that is how you feel and how hunching affects your lifestyle.
I believe that Alison can physically say out loud that she is a suspect and take full responsibility for things she has done. However, I did not think that she believed those things in her heart and mind. She sometimes spokes as if she is the victim, like everyone has done her wrong. For example, with her situation with her classmate, Tori, she just always assumed Tori was after her. Alison always accused Tori for doing things to her because she had made herself believe that Tori hated her.
She loses herself, as I would imagine Sophie to do after a life time of oppression. Jane saw a woman in the wall, and then became her. She took on that identity, and in her mind, then became free of ruling and imprisonment. All of my sympathy for any of the other characters in this work went solely to Jane. Her obvious mental instability made the story difficult for me to read- not because it’s what’s wrong with her, but what’s wrong with professional medical abuse, which especially back then was an ongoing problem in addition to today.
The most important aspect of modern life that Bradbury got wrong was that he predicted society to become ultimately desensitized and that ridding of our favorite aspects of life would fly under the radar. Because of social media and smartphones, citizens have become hyper sensitized to anything and everything. Rather than pushing things away and ignoring all emotion, we freak out and over analyze things that happen, and this is amplified by social media. Rather than becoming desensitized like the citizens in Bradbury 's future, we have become over sensitive and are offended in some way by almost everything that is said or done. We are able to access these things by social media, which is a great platform to grieve in great detail why the thing
