He, first, explains how the usage of Dumpster Diving came to be. Eighner clarifies that this came to be known from the word belonging to the Dempsey Dumpster company. However, he is not very pleased with the phrase dumpster diving so instead he prefers to call it scavenging. Additionally, Eighner always capitalizes the word dumpster which shows us that he, actually, respects the dumpster divers and he is not ashamed being one of them. “ I prefer the word scavenging and use the word scrounging when I mean to be obscure.
There are certain ethics that come into play in Dumpster diving, of which Eighner holds precious. Eighner argues that although he and others are scavengers, they do hold courtesies among each other. While a scavenger may have all that he needs, “it is common practice to set aside surplus items…” (Eighner 115). A scavenger knows that although he may not be in necessity there are those who will. Instead of throwing away perfectly fine items, they think about others and leave them in plain sight.
Eighner reminds us that dumpster diving is merely the act of living from the refuse of others. With his personal narration and exemplification of the articles found in the dumpster, he reasons the legitimacy of this way of living. Without any doubt, he also
Which then he had “freedom.” As well as when he used his intelligence and used the tour guide incident with the water splashing on him to get tips off people and raise more money he normally did to pay off his debt. I like the fact that he was brave enough, strong, willing able to give up what many people die for. Only living in his van by himself with no one to talk to but himself. He survived his adventure and now he can have what he wanted from the beginning “freedom” As I did have parts I liked about the book I also had parts that I didn’t like. “It was season of selfishness, or at least that’s how I justified it” ken’s reasoning of breaking apart his relationship with Sami.
1. The effects of Eighner’s attention to language in the first five paragraphs emphasizes that he is knowledgeable and confident about dumpster diving. As he states, “I live from the refuse of others. I am a scavenger” (Eighner 108). Eighner create an appeal to ethos when he displays his own experiences on the lifestyle of dumpster diving and its different aspects.
The article “Breaking The Plastic Bag habit“, written by Alexander H. Tullo and published in 2015, informs the reader about the invention of reusable bags as an alternative to wasteful plastic bags. The article was most likely published in a quality paper, since it is mainly expository. However, the author uses some rhetorical devices to influence the readers’ opinion. Tolla makes use of adjectives to highlight what he is talking about. In line 6 and line 10, he uses “idle and “adjacent” to underline Keller’s dismay when he saw the amount of carelessly discarded plastic bags.
‘Keep Britain Tidy’ - The message that Eckersley is trying to portray is to pick up rubbish in order to ‘Keep Britain Tidy’. He cleverly incorporates the mans arm through the ‘I’ and we can see this through the mixing of the two colours and the hand coming out from the bottom. ‘Long hair is dangerous’ - Eckersley cleverly
What is desire and where does it come from? It is the opening question for mimesis theory of Rene Girard. In Girard’s theory, desire comes from mimesis, mimetic desire leads to violence and violence is resolved by sacrifice of the victim. It seems complicated when the readers first encounter such a philosophical theory; however, when examined carefully, Girard’s theory is simple and can be found in everyday life. Girard’s theory of mimetic desire, violence and sacrifice will be discussed in details throughout the paper.
They didn’t just focus on the police or the citizen side, the audience got to hear from both thus painting a bigger picture. Another good aspect of this interview was allowing Calvin Williams ample time to express his views in answering the interview questions. This allows the audience to get a better feel for the points he is trying to make, rather than cutting him off mid-answer with another question, as some interviews often are known to do. One thing bad I found was that, during the segment, it mainly focused on the wrong doings by the officers. It did show during a brief interview with officer Shane Bayhoff that he believed “this is his community” and that “he’s out there protecting”, but almost everything else focused on incidents were police handled situations improperly.
He uses it to intimidate the citizens of Fahrenheit 451, as well as a means of garbage disposal. Some examples from the book are, “Its real beauty is that is destroys responsibility and consequences. A problem gets too burdensome, then into the furnace with it… clean, quick, sure; nothing to rot later.” That quote is from and can be found on page 109 of Fahrenheit 451. Also another example of this is, “The important thing for you to remember, Montag, is we’re the Happiness Boys… you and I and the others. We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and thought.
