The name Edward Snowden brings about a lot of controversy in “todays society.” He is seen as a terrorist or a hero, a traitor or a patriot, but no matter what label he is given, at his core, he is a rebel. Snowden sacrificed his comfortable life, working as a computer professional, to support his beliefs in government transparency and its accountability to the people. In this sense Snowden is a lot like Orwell, they both worked hard to spread information about topics that are shrouded in ambiguity and covered in censorship. Though they share a similarity with that belief, it is not the greatest likeness between them. Both Snowden and Orwell show time and time again that even when they have no chance of winning they will still fight for what
Throughout his article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” he feels that “the deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle” due to the rise of the internet (1). Carr assumes that the Internet has debilitated human’s critical thinking. His attempts through logos can be seen throughout the article as he provides many excerpts from books to prove there are people that share similar experiences as he. However, not only is Carr wrong but he misreads his evidence. Rather than supporting his own argument, the information he provides to the audience focuses more on how distractions have led to a decline in critical thinking.
Thus, Irwin’s death showed that the unfairness of blackmail overpowered Willie’s logic behind extortion, but in reality, both sides lost since Willie’s threat failed and Irwin’s newfound information led to his demise.

By using extortion, Warren displays the secret, corrupted side of politics that some politicians result in to further themselves in a political field of constant
This issue could affect sales in-store, not only would the customer become irritated and disorientated, they could be at the final stage of the decision making process to be faced with products listed in a language they are unfamiliar with. Ensuring all products are listed in English would contribute to an overall pleasant experience. Finally I would like to recommend considering an online transactional website for the future. Although this would not have a drastic impact on their business model immediately, long term it could warrant further investigation. It would take a tremendous investment, but as customers change their habits at an alarming rate it could be the next stage for Lidl to grow their business in the future.
This is obviously a huge problem as citizens put pressure on their representatives to do what they want. If the vast majority do not know what NASA’s budget actually is it leads to disastrous results when deciding NASA’s budget because people will want to lower the budget when they think it is astronomically higher than it actually is. The problems of NASA’s budget being so low is not solely on the politicians, citizens are also to blame. If more citizens would become informed on the actual numbers involving NASA’s budget public perception would greatly change. Many citizens will see, through the news, that a project NASA is doing costs millions of dollars.
Epstein analyzes a government survey “READING AT RISK” which gives statistics on how modern social media negatively affects readers. “For the first time in our history, apparently, less than half of the population bothers to read any literature (so defined) at all” (Epstein 165). Though Epstein gives statistics from the survey, he believes the numbers may not be accurate as it is to just give readers a general idea, of the situation.

I believe that people can be as cruel and deceptive as Jimmy and Carla in the story “Unbalanced” by William Sleator. People can be cruel. An example of this is when I have seen advertisements for elections. The different candidates say mean and sometimes untruthful things about their competition. I think this is just as deceptive as Jimmy and Carla because the candidates are ruining the other candidates’ chances of winning, just so they can win.

These ideas cooperate to get the attention of the racists. He unloads lots of negative evidence, hoping that the racist can change their mind.
