The close up on Susan Sarandon’s face is used to show how beautiful she is because she uses REVLON. By using her beauty it gives the product credibility and it manipulates people because a famous person is being used and one immediately assumes that the product must be good. Furthermore, alliteration is used. Susan Sarandon’s initials match the initials of the title “Star Style” people will be more compelled to buy the product because she uses it and especially because the words confident and charismatic are used to describe her, again alliteration is shown.

By using outside sources, Reilly increases his credibility as a writer because it is not just his opinion or facts that he could be making up. It is no accident of Reilly’s consistent use of the word net embeds itself inside the readers’ head. He employs the word so that when the reader finishes the article, they will walk away with “net” echoing in their brain. This is when Reilly starts getting on a personal
I personally believe that both William Safire and Alan Dershowitz have a good argument. Dershowitz is pointing out the positive aspects of having National ID cards while Safire points out the negative. I agree with both of them. I think that the ID would give us more security and would make me feel safer about what goes on around me everyday. I do also believe that it would be a gateway for law enforcement to be able to exploit people more often and pick on them because of something on their record.

Essentially, ads are not merely just a form of communication intended to persuade an audience to purchase a product, ads are a form of communication in which everyone is persuaded what to view as normal. Going off of this concept, according to the culture of advertising, what is now viewed as “normal” are ninety-pound white women with faces and bodies that are flawless. It has been these ads that define what society views as beautiful. It has been because of these ads that women all over the world constantly feel insecure about themselves not fitting into a certain image; an image which the culture of advertising has defined. However, in regards to advertising, it is easy to look at an ad and just see the aspects of sexism, but layered on top of this are issues of race, class, and sexuality.
We wandered around for a bit looking for something to catch our attention. We saw the Pier Aquarium stand where Karen (our future supervisor) was smiling at us and inviting us to learn more about the aquarium. I have always been interested in marine life and something was telling me that was the project that we would end up choosing. After speaking with Karen for a bit we walked around some more to see all the organizations, but my initial feeling was right. All of us agreed that we liked the Pier Aquarium the most and that is how we chose our project.
As a society we have molded ourselves into materialistic idealists, constantly demanding bigger, better and more beautiful. Today what is depicted in advertising is what the media has labeled as desired. Beauty sells, and beauty is what we see.

This beauty is specific, and differs depending on gender.
Unfortunately, the Sho are not accustomed to having a limited resource. Their experience is that everything that had been given by the gods was given in sufficient supply for everyone to use. The existence of a single bottle, an allegory for globalization, threatens their cultural identity as jealousy, anger, and the concept of personal possessions begins to infiltrate their tribe. Even violence, as yet inexperienced by this tribe, creeps into their hearts as they fight over the single Pepsi bottle. By its very nature, globalization does require some release of cultural identity.
Whether we realize it or not, mass media surrounds us in our daily lives. Newspapers, magazines, advertisements, and television are all around us and have a very clever yet powerful force on how we view them. The media can be potentially harmful because it conveys certain messages that are supposed to be socially desirable are part of the norms. Adolescents become prime targets of what the media displays because they are new consumers. Advertising is one of the most compelling messengers in a culture that can influence an adolescent.
