He is trying to persuade people to bring back the Olympics for the good of the world. Personally, I find this document to be biased, seeing that it was written by the original founder of the modern Olympic movement, so of course he supports anything that has to do with making the revival of the Olympics sound so lucrative. An additional document from a historian, who has had vast study on the ancient Olympic Games, would be beneficial to compare/contrast this document. What if the Olympics were the cause of major violent struggle among opposing countries? What if the revival of the Olympics wouldn’t be as beneficial as Coubertin is trying to make it seem?
Channels such as ESPN and all of its substations (ESPN2, ESPN News, ESPN U, etc. ), have made sports a media target which attracts people of different race, religion, age, and gender. With all of the hype surrounding today’s sports crazed media obsession, one would tend to think that perhaps lines of segregation have been dissolved and equality among athlete portrayal has been achieved. One would be wrong. Despite its growing popularity and increasing broadcasting, the female athlete still struggles to be seen as equal to their male counterpart in the sports media limelight (Angelini, 2005).
I would say the biggest rhetorical path used in the commercial was ethos. The creator wanted to show big name Chinese celebrities like Yao Ming and Jackie Chan to persuade the audience for the purchase of a Visa credit card. Because Yao and Jackie are famous, this appeal made people want to be a spectator at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I can see why people become very attracted to this world-wide, once in every four year event. There was also some amount of logos, or emotional appeal.
Firstly, his character traits including his oratory skills, his Nobel Peace Prize and his famous I Have A Dream speech were instrumental in his success as the face of the Civil Rights campaign. His oratory skills was the key component that got Martin Luther King famous, when he moved to Montgomery it was this skill that got him to the top so quickly. These made him a successful leader because it allowed him to motivationally communicate with his fellow African American followers. An example of great motivation in his speech would be his ‘I Have a Dream Speech’ at the March on Washington in 1963, this was his most famous speech, he spoke to at least 250,000 supporters and motivated them completely and got the civil rights act that followed was a true reminder of his skill. However his leadership skills were strained when it came to the Birmingham, Alabama protest that was a huge disappointment.
As the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers went toe to toe for the glorified opportunity to kiss the Lombardi Trophy, advertisers were working behind the curtains to attain another prize--attention. As CBS temporally cut away from the Super Bowl to pay the light bill, Go Daddy unveiled its prime advertisement creativeness that generated a buzz that caused viewers across the nation to have their eyes glued to the T.V in disbelief. The commercial created a tremendous outbreak, for Go Daddy went from a relatively unknown tech company to a household name overnight. However this is not the first rodeo Go Daddy rode in attempt to capture the attention of viewers.

He was a charismatic figure whose magnificence of concept and brilliant insights attracted people, along with his words, wisdom, commitment, deeds and dreams to cast a new life to people. Although to many people his dreams, visions, and goals were big and breathtaking, to him they were simple, a complete liberation of mankind to completely eliminate the injustices. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of high morals, a preacher, and a human being who would not bow his head in apathy, or silence his voice while this nation strayed away from reverence for justice and the respect of human life. Martin Luther King was a man without restrictions instead of waiting around for change he got himself out there and worked to free himself along with his people, he wanted to free himself and the others from the bounds and chains of the unjust authority. Martin Luther King called out to the right minded people “Now is the time to stand as tall proud unfettered men and it is time to cast off the shackles of oppression and go forth into the light of freedom.” (Reality Magazine 1996-2006) Simply because of the actions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. our entire world has benefited from his strength and trying efforts, because of his outstanding leadership which brought out hope and determination for change to millions people.
Throughout cinema’s storied history, we’ve come to know and love an array of grand achievements. The likes of On the Waterfront, The Godfather, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, have challenged, entertained, and touched us, spoken to our spirits. But while the beloved masterpieces of the silver screen will always be with us, there are countless other gems that few have ever seen or even heard of. For every Citizen Kane there is a Citizen Toxie; for every Lawrence of Arabia there is a Larry of Arabia. Enter the B movie.

Ali’s work ethic and determination is something that I truly admire and value. As I play sports and wish to become the best I can be, the standard Ali set is certainly admirable. Even those who are not fans of Ali’s cannot deny the fact that he has more pride then any athlete known today. “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!” are words that have ringed throughout the decades since Ali spoke them. However, in my eyes it is not just the pre-fight jingles or quotes which illustrate Ali’s pride.
