In hopes of “nurturing the personal side of their relationship” Benjamin purchased English goods for the governor and his wife (73). On the side of the relationship, even though William had different views when it came to politics, he still continued to support his father through it all. On top of continuing to support his father in his political views, William also refused to ever “criticize his father no matter how great the temptation might have been (73)”. There are many reasons these two separated. Their political views differed, they both had different views when it came to paying the East India Company back for the damaged that was caused.
In his letter he emphasizes America’s qualities to get his wife to come to live to America with him. We can see one of the first strategies used when he uses emotional appeal to persuade his wife of moving. The appeal seen through first lines “My dear Sukey, all the want now is to see you and the dear children here”. He reminds his wife the love he has for her and their children, and how much he misses them. By saying “then I should be happy and not before”, he is trying to maker her feel guilt, because of her not being there with him.
Hunger Hits Home The documentary I recently watched on the food network called “hunger hits home” is about the crisis of childhood hunger in America through the eyes of three families, anti-hunger activists, educators, and politicians trying desperately to put an end to this ever growing battle. At first hunger hits home shows the lives of hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. They show how hunger is affecting their everyday lives. They also show hunger activists who are hard at work trying to help those hungry families, like a food pantry founder who opened her own food pantry to help people who didn’t have food, a principle who is determined to not let his students go hungry, as well as politicians and non-funded anti-hunger activists. In the one hour long special that really touched my heart it shows how this overgrowing crisis is getting out of hand and how us as Americans need to lend a helping hand to stop this.
Michael is happy that Josie called him to the school to help her because it shows that she accepts him in her life. 18. Sarah’s theory of destiny is that you “let your parents decide” and you have to “marry your own stock” and that you don’t move outside your realm of social and economic status. 19. Josie doesn’t sleep with Jacob because they are different cultures and religions; she believes this to be too important.
His first example was the two types of parents. According to text, “he finished with this unfatherly expression, ‘Well! Give me peace in my day.’ Not a man lives on the continent but fully believes that a separation must some time or other finally take place, and a generous parent should have said, ‘If there must be trouble let it be in my day, that my child may have peace’; and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty.” He used this example due to show people that one who is going to fight against Britain is a good parent and one who doesn’t is not good
These immigrants leave whatever attachments, jobs, or possessions they might have back in their home country. This in itself is a courageous act of bravery. In the story “Brave We Are”, by Tahira Naqvi she tells the tales of an immigrant Pakistani-American mother who is trying to define a challenging word, hybrid, without overstepping cultural and acceptable boundaries in American society. The young boy, Kosim, is intrigued by the word hybrid that he discovered on his own accord. The mother tries to give a general answer, “Its sort of a miniature combination of different sorts of things,” (Naqvi 978) this answer does not even come close to satisfying the inquiry of the boy.
Canadians were working together to provide sustainable food for the soldiers. Canada contributed to the war by taking on the jobs of men at war, and growing fresh and sustainable food items for the men at war. Canada was also heartbroken for fallen men, and they were always fearful of being invaded. While the war raged in Europe, back at home women were being encouraged to take on the jobs of soldiers in war to support their families. Women had many different job titles from offices to factories and paper mills.
John includes this in his letter as to express the generosity among American natives. Continuing that expression, he lists all the food they had out on the table, “pudding, pyes, and fruit of all kind that was in season, and preserves, pickles, vegetables, meat, and everything that a person could wish.” Not only does this long list of items make a meal sound like a feast, John also uses a hyperbole when saying “everything that a person could wish,” surly there is not every possible desirable piece of food available, but is more than anything they could imagine having in England. Expecting his wife’s doubt, John 2 quickly jumps to logos when stating, “they do not think of locking the doors in the country.” Using an example based on fact, he logical establishes the United States of a safe place where his
The spirit of the marriage left the bedroom and took to living in the parlor. It was there to shake hands whenever company came to visit, but it never went back inside the bedroom again. Reason this quote represents gender? I believe that this quote is stated that a man always wants to be in control even when his wife is intelligent. In the time their eyes were watching god was written most men would not be punished for beating a women unless it involved a black man and a white women.
Corporations make us fat Many people claim that it is personal responsibility of what you eat, however fast food corporations and their marketing strategies make it almost impossible to say no. From childhood we are conditioned to grab a large combo meal on our way home instead of going to the grocery store then cooking it ourselves. The ease, convenience, and the cheap prices make it all too easy for consumers. Corporations are to blame for America’s obesity problems because of their lack of nutritional information available to consumers, their lack of alternatives, and their brand recognition and advertisements addicting us from childhood. There is no calorie information posted in any fast food restaurant.
