In this interactive oral, the class was given two different examples where a rapper displays a theme through content and tone. One of these was through a song called “Dreams” by J. Cole where in it, a man wishes to murder another hoping to have a chance at love with the victim’s wife. In the other example, we referenced to a music video for the song “Stan” by Eminem where a man kills himself after never receiving a response to his numerous fan mail to Eminem. These artists used a technique in their songs that Gabriel Marquez too uses in Love in the Time of Cholera. We noted that Marquez infests this book with rich imagery giving love more of an embodied essence making it mirror Florentino’s emotions, saturated and ubiquitous. The musical artists

So, Coop, you seem to take an exorbitant interest in my crush, I figure I'll consult you on how to proceed with her. As you already know, her response to my avowal was disappointingly neutral; no affirmation of rejection nor acceptance. However, being the pessimist I am, I chocked it up to a subtle declination. This is where your knowledge of this ends, but I guess I'll catch you up. I don't want things to be awkward between me and my crush (henceforth referred to as Pocc), in that if I pursue a relationship and she has no interest, she may leave the group of friends we have, or I may do the same due to how uncomfortable it will be (this is, of course, a product of my always assuming the worst will happen).

In paper 4, while I found my rhetorical analysis to be satisfactory the paper itself suffered from a myriad of careless mistakes and poor attention to audience. The largest detriment was the number of silly mistakes, most of which appeared in previous papers. Such as forgetting the rubric, and fragmented sentences. However, despite the careless mistakes, the writing related mistakes in my paper were less frequent.
Good evening, David, James, and Abdullah and the rest of you here, how are you? I am here tonight to announce my candidacy for the presidency and I would start off by expressing my gratitude for your support because let's face it, I wouldn’t be here without you and to be honest, I wasn't even going to run for the presidency but I live by a certain creed, one that runs in my blood and this being that you should never accept the world as it appears to be, always dare to see it for what it could be. But is natural for us to accept the illusions of hope. We opt to shut our eyes from the painful truth.
My second project was the rhetorical analysis which weighted 45% of my grade. For my second project, I have to pick a reliable and unreliable source that relates to Kennedy’s assassination conspiracy theories. I have to make 3 separate papers for a reliable source, unreliable source, and comparison of two sources that would be presented in class. This project was a great learning experience because I get to learn and identify the differences between reliable and unreliable sources. From this project, I really struggled with finding the right unreliable source because it was harder to find on the search results.
Many share the misconception that racism is a problem of the past. To them, prejudice has entirely ceased to exist, and today, humanity bears witness to a nondiscriminatory world. The flippant citing of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream,” perhaps even validates this new, egalitarian society emerging; however, such a society is merely an illusion. In fact, a minor offense as simple as citing “I Have a Dream” may not seem a big deal; however, many anthropologists contend that the telltale signs of institutionalized racism are present in these seemingly innocent actions. Furthermore, scholars Elizabeth Barnert and Terry Jones examine the state of institutionalized racism in their respective articles.
My perspective on life can be illustrated by the positions I played in soccer growing up - striker and goalie. As a striker, I lead the way and scored the goals. As a goalie, I kept the team in check and made the saves. I did both those things on the field, I strive to embody them off of it. by debating the effectiveness of flamethrowers in a Zombie apocalypse.
Rhetorical Analysis I alter use in the body paragraphs in order to show how Andy ( a lower class character) is an example of “heredity” since he takes over his late father’s position at the coal mine. In other words, the way I use quotes in my Rhetorical Analysis demonstrate that I have learned to take in consideration all parts of the quotes. Even though I have improved in considering all parts of the quote when using them as supporting evidence, I actually got to notice that I make arguments that are more than what I can possibly support with evidence from the text. This issue was pointed out to me in the comments left in turnitin.com by Dr. Danner. This problem in my writing was pointed out in my Rhetorical Analysis when I wrote, “under
In multiple news outlets today, one can find a plethora of rhetorical devices in a single segment. In each instance, the anchor, reporter, or tv personality is attempting to sway viewers’ opinions in subtle and unsubtle ways. Rhetorical devices are used for almost any topic, especially politics. The following examples were found in the MSNBC article over the price increase of the EpiPen written by Steve Benen on August 25, 2016, and a transcript of the Bresch Interview given with the essay prompt. The four rhetorical devices were a dysphemism, a rhetorical analogy, repetition, and a rhetorical explanation.
While creating my rhetorical analysis paper I used all of my typical writing processes. I began this assignment by selecting a commercial that I thought would be the most appealing in the superbowl. After selecting my commercial I did some research at the library using EBSCOhost. I then created an outline on what my paper would be about and pieced all of its parts together. In the future I will try to recieve help earlier on because at first I struggled to understand what the purpose of the paper was.
Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.
Often known as the Father of American Literature to many educated individuals, Ralph Waldo Emerson in his oration “The American Scholar” brilliantly provides a sublime example of how Emerson earned his title through the appliance of diction, syntax, allusions, and many other rhetorical devices and strategies. Indicated towards his highly educated audience, the Phi Beta Kappa Society, Emerson introduces the idea that the common class and common concepts of everyday life are becoming the future of art and literature through purpose, credibility, and tone. As many great writers, Emerson does not simply tell about his idea, but instead uses rhetorical strategies to help show his central point, one such strategy being purpose. Being focused on informing his audience of the coming days, the use of purpose can be

Using a multitude of allusions, puns and literary devices, rappers are capable of masterfully constructing stories and conveying a multitude feelings. Notable examples include tales such as “Stan” by Eminem which creates a fictional story of an obsessed fan and “Dance with the Devil” by Immortal Technique a story about a young black male’s life of crime. Unlike, other genres rap is able to embody multiple ideas and feelings and introduce them to a listener in a tasteful fashion. When writing a song about a novel it is important to make sure that it accurately portray the book. Does the song convey the story’s overall tone and mood?
