According to Poker Players Research, about 40 million people regularly play poker and 15 million people in total play online for money. In Jeremy Marks article “The Power of Poker”, he depicts the actual life of a poker player instead the stereotypical professional poker player lifestyle filled with drugs and money problems as instead a life that involves none of those things using his own personal experiences. But on the other hand, in Lauren Patrizi’s “My College Addiction”, she illustrates all the negative effects and consequences that come with the playing poker not only in a physical tournament, but also on online gambling sites. Although both authors express their ethos, pathos, and logos very well, Marks strong logical reasoning and
When I out grew my Shetland pony, my mother and I decided it was time to start looking for a horse for me to continue my riding career on. We had no idea at that time, that horse would be a starving, broke to only the basics, and a recent failure of a pre-purchase veterinarian exam, due to an injury to his fetlock. When we went to meet Hank, who was eventually renamed to Juble, I knew immediately that he was the horse for me, my mom wasn’t as convinced. Much like myself, my mom has a huge heart for animals, especially the ones in harmful environments, which means after minimal begging, she agreed to purchase Juble. This began the long process of helping him put on more weight, helping his swollen fetlock heal, and gaining his trust. This was six years ago, and I’m proud to say that Juble and I are two-time State
Unit 2: EA2 Argumentative Essay Reflection What I feel I did well on this argumentative essay was my research.

The bustling society we live in makes our lives fast-paced and abundant in people we meet. We are at the height of our traveling capabilities, which has only further advanced our society and the way we go about our daily lives. However, some suggest that our traveling capabilities have actually done more harm than good. Perry Patetic argues that the mobility of our society has harmed our close relationships, drawing us apart from our loved ones. Patetic states, “The advantages to living in such a highly mobile society are thus outweighed by the disadvantages.” Patetic claims that mobility has deteriorated our close relationships. This claim, however, is in many regards absurd. The vastly mobile society we live in gives us better opportunity
Argumentative/ Persuasive Essay Molly Killen March 29, 2018 “The starting point of all achievement is desire.” – Napoleon Hill.

In life some feel the need to prove something to others. That they are better, stronger, or even more intelligent. Whatever the case may be people will go through extreme measures to prove themselves. But who do we really need to prove anything to? Is it our parents? Friends? Enemies? Or is it even ourselves? Chris McCandless, deceased adventurer from “Into the Wild”, underwent many obstacles that seems highly ridiculous. Certain physical and mental challenges that could have prevented, Chris decided to do defying the chance of death or severe injury. But the real misunderstanding is who was Chris proving his manhood too?
SRT1720 Description: EC50: 0.16 μM SRT1720 is a selective activator of SIRT1. Previous in vitro and in vivo studies using various cancer cell models show the role of SIRT1 either as an oncogene or a tumour suppressor gene. The oncogenic potential of SIRT1 is exemplified by studies indicating that blockade of SIRT1, like other HDACs, triggers growth arrest and apoptosis in breast, colon and lung cancers.
In sunny California there is a town called Yutter. The dearth of water has caused the soil to be very dry and infertile and so the farmers cannot grow crops, impacting the economy in Yutter, changing it for the worst. The town of Yutter has a deal with the farmers and the water supply company for the town so that they can have more water than other citizens per square acre of land, in order to keep the new seeds alive before they shrivel up and the plants die. Paul Jump, Yutter’s main farmer, much to his chagrin, asked the mayor at the town meeting for water, saying “I can grow food for my pigs with the money I made off of my crops if I have two thousand more gallons a week!” The mayor ignores his request and the audience of the meeting starts to become obstreperous as they walk up to Paul Jump with screams of invective.
This year’s StayClassy fundraising initiative was record-setting. The State Fundraising initiative was able to raise $111,211 surpassing its goal and breaking records. This was primarily due to matching grants and strong dedication from JSA student leaders. It was a grassroots effort with many individual contributions under $50. Next year, I hope to further improve the State Fundraising initiative on StayClassy and set new records. Like previous years, I will work with JSA alumni, corporations, and foundations to secure matching grants. The matching grants are a good way to spark donations. On top of that, I wish to have a competition between states to see who can raise the most money before Fall State. The winning state will receive a special prize such as an extra $500 into their state’s StayClassy account.
