Introduction Comparing the passage about the cleansing of the leper across the synoptic gospels presents some interesting differences. In this essay, an attempt will be made to explore these differences. The intention is to begin by identifying and describing the differences which I find to be most significant or interesting and then to offer my thoughts on these in the context of the evangelist presenting the passage. Consideration will also be given to whether or not there are any correlations to themes in other parts of the same gospel. Finally, the aim is to indicate a key message I derive from the passage in one of the three gospels for a homily.
The ability to divide our attention during cognitively demanding tasks and the allure of technology creates a delicate balancing act that can at times have grave consequences. On September 22, 2006 in Utah, Reggie Shaw placed the fates of James Furfaro and Keith O’Dell, as well as his own upon this deadly scale. Tragically, the lives of James and Keith were lost, and Reggie Shaw’s future would be forever altered by the events and decisions of that day (Richtel 16). In this modern age of technological marvels our attention is vied for in a constant conflict. Frequently in our lives or particularly in our jobs we are called upon to execute mentally demanding and at times dangerous tasks.
In today’s world, relying on luck and opportunity by chance to elevate your professional career has transgressed into a distant fantasy. Rather, one must self-advocate in order to reach the heights most only aspire to reach. Now, pen and paper does not get you as far as does vocalization. If two people with identical resumes apply to your law firm, but one sweeps you off your feet with their interview question responses while the other shyly responds to your inquiries, who do you hire? Exactly.
The goal in writing is to be able to clearly get your message onto paper and have the reader understand it in a certain way while also being unique and concise. I oftentimes found myself lost before even starting. Throughout my time in English 1010 I have noticed that my writing style has changed, I no longer walk into writing with no direction but rather have taken the techniques and strategies I was taught and used them to develop my own process and a sort of blueprint that I use to make sure that I am writing to the correct people as well as making sure that the message get across clearly. Finally, one of the most significant changes I have made to my own process is having my paper read by someone else. Peer review is an important step in

Writing in the Social Sciences vs. the Humanities - A Comparative Rhetorical Analysis In writing, there are several disciplinary conventions that categorize a piece of writing. Writing is most often split into three disciplines; the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The conventions structure, language, and reference found in a piece of writing help further organize the writing into a discipline. At first glance, John Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” and Lora E. Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” do not appear to be difficult to categorize; Streamas’s article is for the humanities, while Vess’s article is for the social sciences.
1. In “What Writing Is”, King creates a genuine personal connection to the reader by incorporating various details about his life, thus establishing a less formal tone. By discussing his need to go out Christmas shopping, his son's surprise visit form college, and his preferred blue chair for reading, King becomes more relatable to the reader, who likely has had similar experiences in their life and therefore understands King's concerns. This causes the relationship between renowned author and common reader to transform into a simple conversation between two individuals and allows King to help the reader better understand the point of the essay. 2.

In the course rhetorical approaches to literature and culture, Professor Kuhn's mission is, "To destroy how you watch movies and read books, forever" (Kuhn 1).

This paper will examine the three distinct changes that a person must undertake, the differences of each stage and explain why the person needs each while attempting to achieve for the mantle of uberperson. The first metamorphoses’ requirements Nietzsche lists show what the camel must overcome.
This passage occurs as more and more people begin to disappear from Holmes’s hotel in the midst of the World’s Fair including waitresses, stenographers, and even a male physician. Larson's purpose in this passage is to depict Holmes's insanity and psychopathic tendencies as he murders several guests at his hotel. Employing a vivid sense of diction, Larson details Holmes’s methods of murder; he uses words such as “gorging,” “proximity,” “death,” and “panic,” to characterize Holmes’s preferences, including the fact that he avoids bloody murder (like the notorious Jack the Ripper) and enjoys being near his victims while they are on the brink of death. When he murders, Holmes feels a sense of, “possession,” over his victim and believes it is “satisfying.” The vault in which Holmes murdered most of his victims “deadened,” most of the sound- but not all, and when his hotel was full of guests Holmes would, “settle,” for more silent means, explains
13th Analysis “13th”, a documentary produced by Anya DeVernay, is about racial inequality. To strengthen the argument about racial inequality, DeVernay uses pathos, logos, and ethos in the documentary. Pathos, the use of emotions, is seen numerous times in the 13th. For example, throughout the film, clips of African Americans being thrown into jail or beings harshly treated are shown. This appeals to emotions because the person viewing the film gets a real life image of what African American’s are being treated like.
