They point to the fact that Marion Nestle supports the notion of local eating to defend their view. While these people make a valid point they mistake her personal views from her professional opinion. For instance, when the article mentions “[Nestle] loves the mystery of years when the late corn is just utterly, incredibly good and no one can say why: it just is” the reader can see the extreme bias that leads to her view on the locavore movement as she personally supports it due to her own personal experience. In truth, she mentions that “there will be nutritional differences, but they’ll be marginal” and “that doesn’t mean it is necessary to eat locally in order to be healthy. In fact, a person making smart choices from the global megamart can easily meet all the body’s needs” (Source B).
The Summary of My Testimony on Plea-Bargaining State legislators are considering a bill that bans all plea-bargaining in our state. As the leading expert on plea-bargaining, I’m aware of the instrumental role that it plays in our justice system. Therefore, I’m grateful that this committee wants to hear from me. From the outset, I would like to state my definitive position on this matter: that state legislators should not ban plea bargaining. To support this position, I offer the following testimony.

The author Isaac West finds that most of the researches in communication ignore the rhetoric in cookbooks therefore she appeal the public to pay attention on rhetoric in everyday life.

I don’t have food allergies so, this book was very enlightening. Food allergies are extremely dangerous, and not many people think about them in this manner. Sandra explained that she had to worry about what she consumed, what she bathed in, where she traveled, and even her significant other. Sandra Beasley writes, “I had the chance to introduce myself as someone other than the girl with allergies.” (pg.226) I loved this quote at the end of the book because it shows that she overcame all the obstacles that came with her having food allergies.
All in all, Garretson’s inability to demonstrate proper critical thinking skills, such as having strong reliable evidence and counterarguments, weakens her essay as a whole. Although her writing tactics may have been potent enough to prove believable to some readers, as a heavily bound meat eater, her arguments for becoming a vegetarian fell short to sufficiently

Octavia will not take the food that the old woman is offering them so the old woman says that James must work so they can eat. This is important to the story because this is one of the main scenes where Octavia is instilling pride in James and teaching him that he must earn what he gets in
She didn’t dare to let his food get burnt; she had learned that lesson many times in the past. “Hurry up and finish, if you’re going to feed me slop, it shouldn’t take all day to make it.” She had lived with him long enough to know that he liked her food, but just didn’t care for her. She knew the food must smell good, and it was an important day for her, she wanted to make something he liked to put him in….a less bad mood.
She also makes sure to directly address advocates, experts, and media representatives. 2. Michelle Obama convinces the audience of her credibility by aligning herself with the parents in the audience and by showing herself to be a consumer of both the food and media companies’ products. She gives an illustration about how she previously fed her family before finding out there were healthier options. She also mentions how she and her husband try to limit their children’s TV time like other parents.
and I was overwhelmed by this burning desire to find out how our meals are grown, created, and end up in our homes. When I found The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan, I read its description and realized that this book would answer all my questions in the history of food. Since many people
Eleanor was more involved in the issues at hand in her time, such as fighting racism and sexism. Even though Michelle’s cause sounds a tad more trivial, they both combatted the important issues of their time; childhood obesity is an epidemic in our country today, and civil rights were essential back then. Another overlap between these two first ladies is that their activism and involvement in said issues was met by criticism by many.

The subject of food films that display “Otherness” to reach out to a bigger public. In recent times “numerous food films focus on ethnic families” to not only show the people a lifestyle, but also to bring communities together. In films such as Soul Food, Tortilla Soup, and What’s Cooking displays different types of culture, but can bring people to come to relate to them. She expresses herself by saying that our culture has a “hearty enthusiasm for ‘foreign food’ that is supposed to hide the taste of racism”. Laura’s thought on how food films with that kind of display bring people of different cultures together is true because I have seen it with my life.
By asking these questions, Rohrig causes the reader to start thinking about the importance of food coloring in food and drinks. The reader has been persuaded to think that food coloring is an important attribute, the rhetorical questions caused the reader to picture the items that Rohrig asked about and probably concluded that they would not use/buy those items.

Through asking these questions, the author causes the reader to think about the possible pros and cons of going artificial.
