The narrator begins to tell you about Michael Clifford’s background and how he came into to the booming industry of for-profit colleges and continues into telling viewers about all that he has accomplished and what he has planned for the schools’ future. The program illustrates the colleges and interviews the people that are making it possible for so many students to go to school and how the process seems so easy. The program questions the credibility of for-profit colleges and interviews administrators such as Mark Defusco, the former Director of the University of Phoenix. In this part viewers get the chance to learn how the former administrators and employees make the for-profit colleges work, from the enrollment process to how much these schools are improving with all the money being made by investors. “College, Inc” continues on to show viewers how for-profit colleges spend more money on getting people to go to these schools than on what the students are getting out of it.

The use of Rhetorical Devices in the Inaugural Address of President John F. Kennedy On January 20, 1961, after being sworn into the Presidency of the United States of America, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, also referred to as JFK, gave an extremely motivational inaugural speech. In his speech, JFK used quite a few rhetorical devices to convince his “fellow Americans” to get involved in their country and to take steps to help their country become unified not only for the good of the United States of America, but for the world. He was, in a sense asking Americans to become passionate about their country, when he stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country” (Kennedy) or the use of the phrase, “The torch has been passed to a new to a new generation of Americans” (Kennedy) He was in some ways, sending out a challenge to his audience. This is a perfect example of rhetoric, by using the art of persuasion. He also plays on the emotions, or the pathos of the audience by stating “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” (Kennedy) At the time, it seemed the entire world was fearful of nuclear war.

Summary of “David Foster Wallace on Life and Work” In David Foster Wallace’s commencement speech given to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College, he first points out to his audience that the most obvious, ubiquitous, important realities are often the ones that are the hardest to see and talk about (para 2). Wallace continues throughout his speech sharing this idea of how sometimes our self-centeredness gets in the way of what is really important. For instance, we only see what we want to see. Wallace then carries on explaining to his audience that for most of us, it’s not really our fault, but refers to it as our “default setting.” Wallace elaborates on this topic for a while with examples from his personal experiences putting things into a better perspective. One of the most important arguments Wallace makes in his speech is when he’s explaining the liberal-arts cliché, “teaching you how to think.” “Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think.
Outliers Chapter 2 In this chapter of Outliers, Gladwell tells the stories behind the success of Bill Joy, Bill Gates, and the Beatles. He opens the chapter talking about the University of Michigan’s newly constructed state of the art computer center and how Bill Joy, one of today’s legendary programmers, happened to stumble across it. He uses this as an introduction to continue strengthening the argument he made in the previous chapter. Adding on to his argument that successful people are the beneficiaries of extraordinary opportunities, he talks about how in order to master a skill, one must practice for at least ten thousand hours. He goes on to say that luck also plays an integral role because you have to be doing the right thing at the right time.
