As Denzel Washington stands before the graduates of Dillard University at their commencement ceremony, he saw an opportunity to encourage them of future success through his “Make a Difference” speech. To appeal to his audience, he uses logos when he introduces tips on success. He said to “Remember that just because you’re doing a lot more doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more done. Don’t confuse movement with progress” (Washington). This then helps the audience clearly understand how to begin this mission to success. As his use of logos was meant to provide instructions, he applies ethos to obtain credibility when he states that he was once “flunking out of college. I had a 1.7 grade point average. I hope none of you can relate. I had a 1.7 grade point average” (Washington). The speaker wants to be a relatable example to all the graduates that he is standing before. Throughout this speech, Washington efficiently utilizes diction, tone, and repetition to appeal to the graduates and encourage them to dream.
Many Americans struggle with difficulties of weight loss, not only losing the weight but keeping it off. Different methods are used for losing weight, such as, exercise, various types of dieting and some medically needed procedures. Even though weight loss is vital to many people’s careers and futures, it doesn’t mean that it’s easier for these people than it is for you and me. The difference is that most people have a state of mind that they can’t afford to fail. So they are willing to pay thousands
The lecture is “ Why Diet Don’t Work” lectures by Dr. Lauren Harb, who works at the University Counseling Services, which this event is organized by J.A.D.E Program. Harb said that diet doesn’t work because of people’s attitude and self-esteem. People are dieting to avoid food to control their weight and watch what they eat, but instead she stated people should think broader when dieting. However, when you are dieting and feels crazy around food or wanted to binge eat that is the sign of dieting. In fact, our brain has its own sense of what you weight and it does not matter what you believe, which means people’s diet doesn’t work the right way it depends on our brain. She described that normal eating is choose food you like, give yourself permission
Soechtig uses logical appeal to support the argument of the documentary with clear evidence and example. Soechtig also shows the ethical appeal through featuring top figures and expects as speaker throughout the documentary. Emotional appeals has created a relation between the audience and the documentary by showing the emotion and struggling of four children and the use of appropriate language. The film itself have done a good job on keeping the audience engage. In the film, Couric have stumped multiple people in the food industry, which added some entertainment to the film. The strong visual effects and some vibrant music in the film have also keep the audience from feeling boring. However, while featuring top figures and experts can build a trust with the audience, the fact that most speaker in the documentary are politicians and journalists instead of nutrition scientists is a weakness of the documentary. Nevertheless, the documentary is effective in convincing the audience that the food industry are threatening the health of the United
From The Pleasures of Eating, Wendell Berry broadens the debate of the food industry with this claim: “Vegetables grown in huge monocultures are dependent on toxic chemicals—just as animals in close confinements are dependent on antibiotics and other drugs” (p. 3). Normally, the food industry topic seems to have an immediate connotation of corrupt practices in the handling of livestock; however, Berry extends the same concern to plants. The primary focus of Berry’s article is to “restore one’s consciousness” (p. 3) of the process of processing foods. Only with this knowledge can one escape—or, at least attempt to—the grasp of the food industry. What is commonplace in the American diet and the American grocery store are scientific products “produced by any means or any shortcuts that will increase profits” (p. 3), making a shopping trip for a truly healthy eater much like a task of sifting through a dump for a gem. Juxtapose the taste of “ugly” produce from a natural garden with the taste of produce engineered to be aesthetically pleasing and the competition is practically nonexistent; however, consumers of the new generation find it awfully difficult to get past the aesthetic comparison.
Throughout the film, there are two main focuses. These are ‘a Western diet is unhealthy’ and ‘a whole-foods, plant-based diet is the solution.’ Understanding the contextual meaning is critical to dissecting the rhetorical devices because otherwise the intent of the documentary’s creators would be hidden. Dividing instances of ethos, logos, and pathos into the two focuses allows for a clear explanation of each. Through separation, one can focus on purpose and effectiveness.
The rise of health concerns continues to proliferate throughout the country from increasing obesity rates to the astonishing number of our population with high blood pressure or diabetes. It’s enough to make anyone want to second-guess everything they eat and put in into their bodies. We ask our doctor’s, and ourselves “what can be done?” Eat right, and exercise. Those are the parameters for maintaining a healthy life. So it’s only natural that across the board we’ve got numerous exercise programs to help you lose weight fast or build lean muscle. Then we’ve got every diet under the sun, the no carb diet, high protein diet and all juice diets. Through research we can find and utilize programs and healthy habits that we can practice
Food is one of human beings’ beloved obsessions. We have an infinite infatuation with food and we spend a great deal of time preoccupied with ways to satisfy this innate need. Food takes center stage when we organize a fun day out with our families, plan a romantic night, look for an all-inclusive vacation package, or simply seek means to relief the stress of everyday life. However, if we overindulge, this affection can turn into a haunting nightmare, capable of shaking our sense of self-worth and confidence. Weight loss diet promise to restore that self-assurance and restore that sense of normalcy that we may have lost. But here comes the challenge of choosing one from the countless weight loss diets that are available through infomercials,
Most people from all over the world are overweight. The problem is that they don’t know how to shed off the extra pounds. The weight loss industry is full of myths. There is a need for us to debug those myths. This is the goal of this book!
It's difficult to keep up with the onslaught of diets that you hear about in the media. They all want you to eat or drink their way. A particular diet will be all the rage one day and then out comes a news flash saying it's not healthy. It's hard to know what to do and how to get off those extra pounds you need to lose in order to live a more healthy and active life.
Everyday it is possible to open up an issue of “Men’s Fitness” or “Muscle and Fitness” or “Modern Woman” or “TIME” or any magazine for that matter, and find the “new and/or improved” way to lose weight, improve the quality of life, or extend your years working towards the other two goals. Almost all of the methods prescribed can work; some are exercise and some are diet. For the most part though, achieving diet or exercise goals requires one to have great discipline. It has been proven, by each of these diet deveopers, that the diets they prescribe will work if the individual will just manage his caloric intake.
Every diet program out there includes a unique feature that sets it apart from the competition. This is true as well for the Slimming World, one of the most successful diet programs developed in the United Kingdom. Since its establishment in 1969, the Slimming World has attracted a loyal set of dieters and busy professionals who are intent on losing weight and changing their lifestyle for the best. But what truly makes the Slimming World a successful program for more than 40 years is its highly flexible food optimizing program where dieters get to choose their food, and the principle of ‘syns’ which puts the dieters first. In the context of Slimming World, the ‘syns’ are daily
The audience of this assignment are my professor, William Johnson, and my online class of students. My paper is going to be the summarizing, and analyzing of the Core Topic ‘ WEIGHT LOSS DIETS: ARE THEY ALL THE SAME? The purpose of my paper is going to be the topic of weight loss diets, and if they are all the same thing, or are they different? Diets are a huge deal in America, everyone is willing to try out the new diet fads, especially the ones who think that a diet will give them the perfect body handed to them if they try them out, but the thing is that all diets don’t work the same for every person due to everyone’s bodies being different.
In countries, such as the United States, weight control is a common, yet, dire issue. Especially, in a society where thin is in, but for many, so are fatty foods and infrequent exercise, there is a huge and growing demand for quick, easy schemes to lose weight. However, the true
It is quite noticeable that obesity rates in the United States are continually rising. When a person is obese, they have an increase risk to diseases such as type-2 diabetes, heart disease, various cancers, etc. (Haslam & James 2005). There are countless studies conducted to see the possible effects obesity can cause to an individual. One study concluded, if two obese individuals have a child, that child has a high percentage of being obese as well (Kolata 2007). Although there are different methods to help individuals lose weight, there are different reasons for people not to lose the excess weight. The most common responses for individual’s not to lose weight are, “I don’t have time to go to the gym,” “Workout DVD’s are expensive,” and “Healthy and fresh foods are too expensive for me to buy.” Nevertheless, if there was only one fruit that could possibly help any individual’s health dilemma(s), that fruit should be strawberries.
