Diana Padilla AP Language Ruby October 1, 2014 Aiming for: A Précis: In "The Human Cost of an Illiterate Society", Jonathan Kozol, a Harvard graduate, argues that illiteracy cause the loss of choice or freedom and leads to many problems. Kozol highlights his argument with examples of when illiteracy can be binding such as "Many illiterates cannot read the admonition on a pack of cigarettes. Neither the Surgeon General's warning nor its reproduction on the package can alert them to the risks."(20). He gives extensive and detailed scenarios in order to raise awareness on the harm of illiteracy. Kozol addresses his readers so that they may spread awareness on illiteracy and eventually resolve the problem.
Of the many successful women out there, I have chosen three. Women who are not afraid of the public’s opinion and impression of them. For example: Mary Mc Aleese had to deal with the contrast of being ambassador for Ireland whilst the country went through major recession. Hillary Clinton had to deal with the opposition people contradicting her as she ran for the first female president of the United States. A famous female inventor I know of was Virginia Apgar.
"If you have a problem, say, with America's atrocious treatment of its veterans, you can't just pick up a phone and call your local congressman," Weldon told reporters from his office on K Street Monday. "You need someone on the inside who understands how democracy works; someone who knows how to grease the wheels a little." Weldon said that after successfully advocating on behalf of Goldman Sachs and BP, he is relishing the opportunity to lobby for the American people, calling it the "challenge of a lifetime." The veteran D.C. power player admitted that his new client is at a disadvantage because it lacks the money and power of other groups. "The goal is to make it seem politically advantageous for legislators to keep the American people in mind when making laws," Weldon said.
The gender gap in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) has been an enduring problem, and new research shows that the gap is widening. Washington Post Op-Ed writer Catherine Rampell discusses one potential reason for this in her article, “Women should embrace the B’s in college to make more later”. The author presents her case based on new research showing that women in fact hate getting B’s. Rampell’s thesis positions that women are selling themselves short by fixating on grades (1). If women’s grades decline in STEM, economics, or other quantitative fields, women often switch majors to pursue more forgiving humanities degrees.
