In the article, Threshold of Violence, by the New Yorker Magazine authored by Malcolm Gladwell, he argues that the Granovetter theory thoroughly describes why school shooters hardly fit any kind of pattern. Although he uses several statistics and resources, Gladwell is not fully effective in proving his claim because he limits his ideas to thresholds, he does not use enough ethos, and he contradicts himself several times. One can easily debate that this claim does not provide enough evidence. Ultimately, his claim does not persuade the reader that the Granovetter model is not effective. uses examples such as: Evan Ramsey, Kip Kinkel, Eric Harris, and John Ladue to prove his point.
Reading about a place where you’re not allowed to read. The civilization in this novel sees books as irrelevant objects that don’t make any sense and cause trouble and sadness by making people think about things they don’t want to think about. Within this novel, a few
Apologizing many times did not seem to do any good. They were most unforgiving and did not take the count I was not yet familiar with their terms yet. As I investigated why the words “tattoo gun” are so offensive to tattoo artist my writing for my learning spec that night was almost effortless.

The first words that rise from the work to the reader is “Do not weep” (Crane 1st stanza), yet it does not comfort the audience. The title emphasizes that the poem is sarcastic and this makes the reader feel doubtful towards the greeting presented to them. In addition,
Constantly saying she was innocent was a bit irritating to me, but I believed her. The commercials in between scenes were distracting and irrelevant to me. I had never heard of the cigarette brand which made me feel lost and uninterested. When the evidence was discussed I started
To be sure, there are some weaknesses in the book. The book is a collection of ideas that the author had jotted down so, the contain in the book are not related to each other which make difficult for the reader to grasp what the author want to say.
