For example, Krakauer includes letters that refer to Chris as an “idiot” and a “greenhorn”; yet, Krakauer negates all arguments against Chris and then refers to Chris’ critics as “angry letter writers” (176). To demonstrate that negative perceptions of Chris stem from false information, Krakauer proves that Chris correctly identifies the moose. Krakauer also recognizes counterarguments to Chris’ intelligence, but he negatively describes the people that present the counterarguments. In addition, after extensive experimentation and research, Krakauer concludes that the chemical L-canavanine in the seeds is responsible for Chris’ death (202). Krakauer determines that the seeds are toxic to prove that Chris is not reckless and incompetent.
Due to the fact that college athletes will not be focused on school, therefore, causing them to not be well educated as well as not having academic skills, college athletes should not be paid. College students will gradually concentrate more on athletics leading them to be discouraged from academics. Their futures will be impacted in a major way if they concentrate more on athletics than academics. For instance, most college athletes “will never go professional and will seek gainful employment beyond their brief athletic career at college” (Bob 23).
Ignorance is all over the world as addressed in Robert Procter’s, “Agnotology.” Ignorance provides a basis for Trevor Noah’s, “Go Hitler!”. These readings are comparable in ways of the rhetorical elements of palilogy, logos and the use of narratives that speak to each validity of the readings. Noah uses effectual validity in “Go Hitler!” to support his claim of every culture teaching differently regarding historical events, yet Proctor uses factual validity in “Agnotology” to support his claim of people knowing an insufficient about ignorance.
First, Lieberman accuses some news agencies of “short sighted reporting”, meaning that these news outlets are only giving one side of the overall story, which intimidates potential college students. The author asserts,

“Generation Debt” by Alethea Spiridon is an argumentative essay that outlines the harsh reality of student loans. The author examines the consequences of student loans as well the reasons higher education should not come as an expense to the individual pursuing it. In the current job market a post-secondary degree is a prerequisite for almost any profession and the sad reality is that this costly degree is not a guarantee of future wealth. The author effectively explains why treating education like a luxury good can impoverish everyone, and outlines ways student debt can burden graduates’ lives. However, she fails to examine the reasons student loans can be advantageous, and this is problematic because there are several missing benefits including manageable reimbursement options, lower interest rates, as well as student friendly terms and conditions when compared to a standard loan.
Even though only two case studies were presented here, the other case studies presented were certainly less convincing than Ranadive’s story. The story of Caroline Sacks cannot hold up to the concept of hindsight bias as described by Duncan Watts. The story of David Boies loses validity when you compare the number of successful dyslexics to the number of unsuccessful ones. Even Ranadive’s story could be unconvincing if you consider the financial resources he was able to devote to the team by having a former NFL player as an assistant coach means they were not underdogs in the first place. Overall, Gladwell’s argument may be valid for the few cases presented but it cannot be widely
Mark Twain wrote this essay in a pessimistic and biased manner, which forced his readers’ to reflect upon a deeper meaning. His writing style was biased by not including any favorable qualities that people possess. He spoke of man's moral sense being worse than the disease of rabies, yet didn't offer any solutions. He disproved his own thesis by basing his stated theory on satire, which leads one to believe his stated thesis was not his motivation in writing this piece. Using Satire was a way for him to address the problems he saw within society without directly insulting his audience.
In the essay “Idiot Nation”, Moore conveys the idea of how in today’s generation education diminishes the drive for learning because of budget cuts, creating a lack of student passion towards the subjects. His example of America’s lack of desire for improving their educational backround can be seen in this statistics, “99 hours a year an average American adult spends reading a book – compared with 1,460 hours watching television” (Moore 123). According to Moore, all Americans create themselves in being “ignorant” and “stupid” when it comes to basic knowledge.
Biasness against individuals and passing judgment on them over their appearance and skin shading is unfeeling. In To Kill a Mockingbird, creator Lee unyieldingly investigates the ethical nature and its corruption of individuals, particularly the battle in each human soul amongst separation and resilience is genuine and intense in actuality. The comprehension of the content and also how the writer influences us to have affected perusers to accept and swear by the way that racial preference is erroneous in all grounds and the wrongful treatment of African-Americans' is merciless and out of line. "Keep in mind it's wrong to execute a mockingbird" said Atticus to Scout. At the end of the day, Atticus is of the conviction that it's wrong to loan some assistance towards guiltless individuals who are the casualties of shrewd, much the same as Boo Radley who does not turn out to be hurtful to anybody, rather, he leaves Jem and Scout endowments and furthermore covers Scout with a cover amid the fire.
It 's insane that a college football coach could make more than $7 million annually. It 's especially crazy in a multibillion-dollar sports/entertainment entity that still — laughingly — passes itself off as a nonprofit operation in order to maintain its federal antitrust protection. But it 's the price of doing business. Or rather, the price of doing "nonprofit business."
A case that supports this claim is Keller v. Electronic Arts, Inc. In this case Sam Keller filed a lawsuit against Electronic Arts claiming that the company’s use of his likeness in their college football video game violated his right to publicity. Electronic Arts filed a motion to strike the case, and the court denied this motion. Keller claimed that the use of his jersey and number, along with many of his physical characteristics used in the game was misappropriation because he was never compensated for that use.
As any other person would ideally do in that situation he accepted them. The NCAA prohibits endorsements on the basis that the student-athletes are only amateurs. However, if they are only amateurs then why do schools offer them an almost-free education, worth up to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in some cases? This ruling was also hypocritical of the NCAA, as pointed out to by Anderson, the NCAA allows student-athletes to play college football while also playing professional baseball.
I’ve heard it all about Nebraska accepting a bowl. The team doesn’t deserve it at 5-7, it’s embarrassing, and the Nebraska football program should have more pride than to show up with a record like that. Let me pitch you something. You’re the first-year head coach of a football team. You just got done with perhaps one of the most frustrating seasons you’ve ever been a part of.
When Alabama won the 2016 national championship I read a story about how much money the coaches received for winning and the players, well they received shirts and hats. As noted in the readings, many athletes don’t receive a full ride nor every athlete receive an athletic scholarship. I believe if an athlete is a part of an athletic program then they should have everything paid for in terms of room and board, tuition, meal plan, books and even extra money for transportation, hygiene, and entertainment. No player who works for an athletic program averaging 30 hours a week should have student loan debt. I don’t think athletes should get paid because the purpose of college for everyone is to get an education to better your future.
