The notion of "meme," as described in Susan Blackmore's essay "Strange Creatures" is a rather confusing topic. She tends to give us a sense of humiliation, suggesting that we are nothing but imitations or copies of other, indicating that we are not creative enough to innovate ideas our self. However, Alain de Botton's essay "On Habit" can serve as an interpretation to the fact that us humans are creative enough to innovate our own new ideas, and that the word "meme" does not really tell us everything about the world. The main problem lying within the notion of "meme" is that it seems to be too negative. It willfully obscures the idea of human creativity and innovation.
Lord of the flies was a very interesting book it was good for the most part, for example the story was good! but the reason i say it was “good for the most part” is because of the beginning it was awful it did not explain anything how they got there what happened and they weren’t even scared and then they went swimming? Just didn't make sense at all. Another bad thing about the book is that the very end was good but predictable he got rescued and it was happily ever after other than the fact of all the deaths. The last bad thing I have to say about the book is were really no likeable characters some were jerks (Jack) some were bossy (Raphael) others thought they were always right (Piggy) it would have been nice to see at least one lovable main character.
Malone attempts a persuasive style of writing but its effectiveness is questionable. He succeeds in creating an argument, but his call-to-action is ineffective. Considering the context, style, and other components, the target audience could not be properly persuaded. Kobutsu Malone’s “Narcissism and Spiritual Materialism: The New Age Legacy” does a dissatisfactory job of persuading its audience, New Age participants, due to his hypocritical ethos, aggressive pathos, and misguided logos. Malone’s main argument, materialistic values are vividly apparent in the New Age, failed to convince readers his opinion should be taken seriously.
Basic to doublespeak is incongruity, the incongruity between what is said, or left unsaid. Doublespeak essentially is misleading, deceiving, and circumvents what is being said. I looked at a couple other articles on doublespeak to see if other possible definitions were out there and it seems to be universally agreed upon that doublespeak is a deceitful language that pretends to communicate but does not. After the reading I would agree on double speak being
Among these are the tendency to pull tired metaphors, similes, and other figures of speech out of a hat, resulting in a Tetris level of participation. Then there is the common substitution of long, bloated words that carry the shallow appearance of intelligent thought in the place of shorter, meaningful words that get the point across, but may appear dull if the point is dull. Finally, there is the unfortunate padding of sentences with useless operators that cloud the original meaning with vague and passive phrases. Not only are these bad habits stunting creativity in writing, they are manipulating the
Politics have been a very popular trend on social media where many ages of people can see all the political debates. Nicholas Carr provides solid evidence to convince readers that social media is ruining politics by using strong word choice, historical events, and social media itself. Strong verbiage in an argument could make all the difference to swaying one to a particular side. Carr uses exceptional word choice throughout the article to convince readers how social media is changing politics. Many of the phrases Carr uses are relatable because they encompass a variety of age groups.
Paradoxes of hasty generalization appear while a popular dedication is crafted from a one-sided or too little of a specimen.

Similarly word summarization is also just like a text summarization in which we will give the text as a paragraph and from that text we can find the word summary using Word Sense Disambiguation technique. 1.3 Word sense disambiguation Word Sense Disambiguation is a challenging technique in Natural Language Processing. There are some words in the natural languages which can cause ambiguity about the sense of the word. Those words are called polysemous words. Word sense disambiguation (WSD) is the solution to the problem.
It was like the author was trying too hard for this book to be fun and light and cute... but it just seemed silly and poorly written. I hate saying things like this, but when it becomes that big of an issue for me I have to point it out. Also, all of Braswell 's characters, both the old and the new, had one major flaw: lack of characterization. It 's as if Braswell expected the reader to use and be satisfied with prior knowledge. I was not satisfied.

Take for example my first sentence from the Zeitoun long comp, “Human nature is a fickle thing, no one person being perfect”. That sentence isn’t awful, and technically isn’t grammatically incorrect, but it seems a little awkward and stilted. Thanks to Mrs. Provost and her lesson on colons and semicolons, I’ve learned that a more natural replacement for that sentence could be “Human nature is a fickle thing: no one is perfect”. Small things like that are a great showcase of the strides I’ve made in my command of the English language. Another area I believe i improved in was the writing of theses and introduction paragraphs.
