While patents don't seem to be encouraging the development of discrete new ideas that no one else has, that doesn't mean they aren't motivating innovation at all. The incentives provided by a patent, in other words, must be filtered through the realities of a patent race. In some (though by no means all, or even a majority) the inventors are acutely aware of the possibility of patent rights and of the risk that others might obtain the core patents. As John Duffy has observed, the benefit of a race is that people run faster than they otherwise would. As a result, a patent race should both cause inventions to be made sooner than they otherwise would be and, because patent terms are measured from the filing date, cause the resulting patents to expire earlier than they otherwise would.
When most casual readers first skimmed over this article, they might be impressive because they browsed Jeff Jacoby’s essay without thinking and with no doubt. The careless readers might also unconsciously agree with his opinions since his argument seems strong and logical. However, if they read the article again and again with second thought carefully, they will find out that his claim is doubtful since Jacoby uses too much pathos, does not give proper statistics, and lack of giving contrary contend. Although Jeff Jacoby shows many disadvantages and flaws of imprisonment to convince readers of his side, he presents some statements based on his emotion without thinking objective. So, I should argue that Jacoby uses too many his own feelings about the dissatisfaction of imprisonment, which makes his claim weak and not credible.
My intended audience is those for and against shorthand texting. Andrew Chesney Professor Michelle Krueger ENG 201 29 October 2012 Texting Is Beneficial Over the years there has been a lot of controversy and debate regarding the phenomenon known as texting. For some, texting is the best thing that has happened to the technological world, and for others it is considered to be no more than a disgrace. Many people have yet to come to terms with the fact that technology is advancing rapidly and in ways that are sometimes hard to understand. With this comes criticism and negativity.
To Elude by Allusion Titles of great literary works are not often slapped on with no forethought; in fact most of the time the author saves the title for last, because they want it to have relevance to the plot or story of their work. Some titles' relevance is easy to see and understand, while others can be horribly vague and hard to grasp. Sometimes one must simply trudge through the whole of the work before the title's meaning shines through. In both John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath and in T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land," allusions to turmoil within society and the individual are made within the works, and these ideas are only realized when the full length of each work is read and related to ourselves using the metaphors of wrathful grapes and the wasteland nearly all of us unknowingly live in.
Faber talked to Montag about how books have “quality“. In Faber’s words, “They show pores in the face of life,” and that’s what people wanted to stay away from, because you had to think and do(83). That is exactly what people didn’t want, they just wanted to have fun and be entertained. They didn’t want to have to think for themselves. So why do it?
Altogether, Guy Montag’s change in heart towards books is a blessing. He realizes that his society lacked a hunger for knowledge and wants to do something about it. The true theme in the novel, “Too much mindless entertainment,” proves it is necessary for any society to have the knowledge of the past, which is recorded in books. It can prevent man from making the same mistakes as in the
Karla Carreno Paper 3 Dr. Wegener October 26th, 2011 Learning Through Literature Literature does a lot more to readers than people think. It makes us question everything around us, or makes us think about a certain aspect of life that we have never thought about.Karla Carreno2011-11-17T18:09:38Can't support this because it assumes “we” learns/reads for fun. Nothing is universal or whatevs If you delve deep enough into a work of literature, you can learn a lot more than if you just read it for fun. If you analyze what you read you learn more than you possibly thought you could learn. Literature can teach readers about other people as well, especially people of other ethnicities and cultures.
An ambitious author does not squander their time on those who refuse to at least consider fresh perspectives, for they know it is a waste of effort that could be put to good if applied elsewhere. Narrow-minded perspectives do not create, nor collaborate, nor inspire, they are stagnant and only accomplish in silencing creative thought. “It is the attitude of the open minded thinker, of someone who wishes to be responsible for deciding for herself or himself what to believe”(Gage 96) that gives life to an author’s work. When willing minds collaborate to discuss an idea, regardless of the final outcome, the author’s work becomes meaningful in society. In that moment where one person’s written words become entwined in language and thought, when an idea connects with streams of consciousness, when perspective joins the flow of conversation and consequently travel to the depths of unconsciousness, that is the moment when the author’s labors are made
For example “While this analysis does not examine mammography-related outcomes because of the level of depth and breadth of information collected with respect individual level SEP, neighborhood level SEP and perceived racial discrimination” (148). Here the authors use the words SEP and monograph to specifically state what their analysis concerns to. By adding complicated words and phrases to their sentences the authors do not make it easy for their ideas to be conveyed across, but by not being direct and straightforward stimulates/ portrays to the reader that the author has a deep understanding of the idea at
These were the little statements such as “Sorry weirdos-I love you, but she has a point.” or, “Sadly, I couldn’t get anyone to connect with me-for some reason, nobody wanted me to track their every movement?” These are small humorous additions to the story that without them the story is still great but with them it keeps the reader wanting to read more and even though small, they are a large help to Honan’s story and he does a nice job of adding them in places they fit and not just throwing them in randomly throughout his writing. In conclusion, Mathew Honan does a lot of things right when righting this story, He makes a few mistakes like including too much of his personal life and telling the world that his wife will be home alone for a week, but what he does right including making himself relevant in the beginning of the story, using his personal experiences Hale 4 effectively and making the reader want to read more, and I definitely believe that the things Honan does right in the story without a doubt trump the things he did not do right. No one can write a perfect story, there will always be small changes that could take place, but Mathew Honan did a wonderful job with his essay “I Am Here”. It was not only informational; it told a story and was even funny and quirky at times. He certainly wrote a story that kept the reader reading and I would say that is what is most
