Throughout the article Mr. Davidson gives data, facts and specific incidents revolving around displacement of people as the direct outcome of gentrification or urban renewal. His strong argument will not only help my research, it has the potential of being to strong, and might overshadow, or cause my research to be skewed due to his findings. Freeman, Lance. There Goes the 'hood: Views of Gentrification from the Ground Up. Philadelphia, PA: Temple University Press, 2006.
The author is a journalist who works for the San Francisco bureau of the Associated Press. The article reveals the opinions of airline passengers on new full body scanners used to prevent terrorism incidents. Most of those opinions agree about the full body scanner, which will help me to more explain the opponent position. Also, the article includes a solution that I may use in finding a common ground between my opinion and the other
On the other hand the “Collegian” although giving off the impression that it may be more official with its color scheme and layout it is in fact just personal opinions of one “Haley Henry”. Although also using the same techniques as the leaflet such as bold text the context of the text is less daunting and more of a positive and biased view on social networking. The article is called “10 reasons social networking benefits students” it is obvious that either a student or a enthusiastic teacher wrote this by looking at the title alone. Up on further reading we can see it was most likely written by a student due to the positive outlook of the text and the blatant disregard of any
The last three terms are also important but not always necessary. In the article “American Value Systems” by Richard D. Rieke and Malcolm O. Sillars, I found great use of the Toulmin model when understanding their argument with each individual value system. In their article they did a great job by not generalizing the American population by using the term ‘everyone’ which could possibly offend readers and having them judge from the beginning. The article speaks of six value systems but clearly states in the opening paragraphs that “broad social categories” are defined, also, both groups and individuals will be found outside of these systems or may use certain qualities of one or more value systems and combine them to create their own. The value systems defined are The Puritan-Pioneer-Peasant Value System, The Enlightenment Value System, The Progressive Value System, The Transcendental Value System, The Personal Success Value System and The Collectivist Value System.
Dr. Pinker believes that as a people violence over time has been bred out of us, thus leaving us more peaceful by nature (191). Dr. Pinker does a decent job displaying his beliefs; however he seems to be lacking the ability to connect with the reader on a wider level. Leaving one with the feeling that they read government propaganda. Dr. Pinker does a stellar job presenting evidence in a clean cut “square” way, leaving the reader with a feeling of something left to be desired. “As one becomes aware of the historical decline of
In other words does the decision you are making go against your own morals, principles, or standards. If it goes against them it is easy to know that it is a wrong decision. Does it leave you with a clear conscience? If it is not clear it is a wrong decision. These seem like fairly easy rules to follow however, facing prison time, the loss of a driver’s license, and a large fine can make it more difficult to make the right
Although the overall tone of the essay illustrates Hockenberry’s implied thesis that Hockenberry accepts, and even admires, the work of milbloggers, he also identifies a few downfalls of the ability to post in real-time without the direct ability of the Pentagon and Commanding Officers of units to control it. In a few circumstances, casualty information was given out, which violates privacy rules set in place for families of the injured or deceased, as it could upset next of kin. However, steps are being implemented to better control jeopardizing operational security rules. The
I really enjoyed the book Freakonomics. To me it was a kind of what if sort of story. By what if I am referring to the other side of situations that people do not explore. The authors of the book probably took in some criticism for some of their views. However I think that it was worth it.
The main benefit of the filibuster is that it can provide a useful check on the majority party by extending the debate and force them to find the common ground with some on the other side. It is an effective way to promote more moderate policies rather than bad partisan law. In other words, the policies aligned with the majority party will not be enacted. Furthermore, the filibuster can stop the majority party from being extreme ideological. Consequently, we can keep the partisanship under control if used
As I look back at my past experiences, I must admit that I too was once was oblivious to the importance of safe driving. But now that I’ve matured, I have become morally opposed to any activity that could possibly be a distraction to my newly acquired safe driving habits. I admire all individuals who stand to ameliorate our Society by being righteous law abiding citizens, and I believe that the upcoming generation can greatly predispose themselves from harm’s way by applying this Safe-Driving method. The dissemination of this public service announcement is to not only to be alarming on a regional perspective, but also to expand on a national and worldwide level...It all starts with something we were taught as children, lead by example. I am very glad that AT&T came up with this ad because it makes people more aware of this sleeping beast within texting and driving.
