Just Lather, That’s All In hopes character description on Captain Torres in the short story “Just Lather, That’s All”, got straight to the point, used examples that went with her descriptions, and knew what the theme was of the story. Hope got to the point of the story a lot faster than I did in my opinion piece, which made hers a lot more precise then my own. She also wrote a lot of why Captain Torres is a good person underneath and really feels bad for when he has to kill the rebels. Also she gave good examples to why he thinks that killing is harder than it actually looks, when he does his job: which involved him to kill and humiliate the rebel’s bodies. Secondly she gave good examples to why Captain Torres has the traits that hope mentioned in her opinion piece.
As an experienced writer, Reilly has done his research on the topic that he is trying to convince his readers to support. The facts that he uses are placed perfectly making any reader gasp about the amount of fatalities because of malaria. He uses credible sources such as the World Health Organization (Glau, Maid, Roen 465) to back up his facts and makes the reader trust that he knows what he is talking about. Reilly also integrates quotes in his article to show that he is not the only person that is aware of the problem occurring. By using outside sources, Reilly increases his credibility as a writer because it is not just his opinion or facts that he could be making up.
John Steinbeck made the plot interesting and the themes behind the work were truly brilliant. The book had its points were they were very descriptive but didn’t keep me interested enough. Reading through those boring parts is completely worth it though. Steinbeck makes the book easy to understand and i like that quality a lot about this book. In my opinion, I got the idea that this book was written more for the workings of the mind but at the same time Steinbeck wanted to make you feel something as you read this.
I was interested in this article because I knew that Brayshaw was really passionate about Carey being inducted and was one of the people who nominated him. This site wasn’t really useful to me as I didn’t get too much information from it but I got a really good quote from it that I used in my essay. North incensed as Carey misses out again – by Roger Vaughn http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=816622 – accessed
Levy focused more on anecdote’s and imagery, however his article was also mostly effective because of the amount of information he left out. Patterson relied mostly on hip-pocket-nerve and statistics in order to get his logical argument across. Horrace’s piece appeared more affective because of his passionate tone and emotive, straight-to-the-point language. His continuous attack on the protesters implied that he was confident in what he was saying and was willing to “actively defend sensible hunting/shooting”. Each article well affected the reader differently in accordance to which techniques where most effective on them and all writers presented valid
Creative minds and critcal thinking | Famous Thinkers | PHL/458 | | Edward McClendon | 7/11/2013 | Facilitator: Dane Scott Schnarr | Famous Thinkers When deciding which famous thinkers to discuss in this paper it was easy to pick individuals that stood out above all. Researching individuals in which there is familiarity was not a challenge so the decision was based on interest. William “Bill” Gates always has been an individual of impressive interest because of his integrity portrayed in the media. Reading and hearing about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through history books and on television does not do him justice. Reading the words written by Dr. King piqued the interest to understand it directly from his point of view.
Kasey Beebe Essay 3 3/14/2012 In his article “A Rant about Women” Clay Shirky talks about how men are better at promoting themselves, how women are more concerned about what people think, and that more men than women lie to get ahead. I agree with Shirky’s ideas because I have life experiences which support them. I agree women find it harder to promote themselves; as Shirky says “Not enough women have what it takes to behave like arrogant self-aggrandizing jerks.” Although my boyfriend Kirk is not a jerk, he is very good at talking himself up, along with all his possessions. For example, when he described his house in Jericho, Vermont, I pictured a two story colonial with a large barn. Instead Kirk and I live in one half of a modest ranch style home.
Effective writing is a type of writing that immediately involves the reader's interest and carries them through to the final paragraph with no loss of concentration. I think Cecil did a great job with keeping his paragraphs interesting and not too boring, he didn't but too much information but the right amount. Throughout the story he explains the point of the essay, there's emotion, examples, and history as to why blacks get mad. He doesn't just write about how bad whites treat blacks and that they're all to blame. Racism is a very touchy subject and in the end of his essay he explains that the black community does have a role to play.
Dudes who like to explain to women how sexist rap is (we’ll term them “Explainers”) are well-meaning white knights who have a passing familiarity with rap music and an urge to ensure that female fans are made aware that the genre is “misogynistic” (a once-powerful buzzword that used to denote hatred of women, but which increasingly means nothing more than “a thing I, a man, find sexist on some level, from a safe distance”). Explainers often identify as “feminist men,” although sometimes they’re just the type of man who likes to stringently test (feminist) women. It’s a dead giveaway that you’re dealing with an Explainer if he opens with the following lines: “How can you listen to that stuff? It’s so misogynistic” or “How can you claim to be a feminist when you love rap so much?” or “"HELLO, I AM A MAN, AND I’M HERE TO SAVE YOU FROM THE MUSIC YOU LIKE.” Explainers are motivated by a belief that rap “gets away with” being sexist; they’re selfless protectors of womenfolk who simply can’t stomach the internalised misogyny of a woman jamming Cam’ron. You may have detected that I’m snarking.
She also talked a lot about miss more and ragged on her a lot which was mostly bad talk. The way the story was laid out I though it had a bit too much bad language and improper wording and sentence phrases. This would keep the reader into it just to see what could she possibly say next. I think the author has a lot of what I read to be some what unnecessary language. It is still overall a very good story and I think a lot of readers out there would like it and could relate.
