Alva Noe builds an argument against the idea of cell-by-cell brain mapping in the passage “Making A Brain Map That We Can Use.” He uses rhetorical questions, imagery, and refutes the counter argument to build an argument against the idea of cell-by-cell brain mapping.
I agree with you, Erin. The fundamental aspect of man that makes him marvelous, according to Pico, is that he is essentially free to choose his own destiny. I loved the question Pico posed: “Why, I asked, should we not admire the angels themselves and the beatific choirs more” (28)? After all, what makes man more marvelous than the angels they themselves praise? Following this, Pico made an important distinction between mankind and both the creatures that dwell in Heaven and on Earth: “The nature of all other creatures is defined and restricted within laws which We have laid down; you, by contrast, impeded by no such restrictions, may, by your own free will, to whose custody We have assigned you, trace for yourself the lineaments of your own nature” (29). Here, we see that through personal thought, decisions and actions, man can, as Erin has quoted, descend to a lower form of life or ascend to a divine life (29). According to Pico, not even the highly-regarded angels posses this free-will. Therefore, now we begin to understand that it is not a matter of hierarchical rank that makes man marvelous, yet the unique ability humans have has to shape their life. This is why there is nothing more marvelous than man.

Tato Laviera, a great Puerto Rican poet, writes one of his most famous and prideful poems called "AmeRican" majorly composed of metaphors, where he dreams of a time when his people, the Puerto Ricans, can create, or how as he states in his poem "give birth" to a perfect race in which we live in peace and happiness; where all cultures are welcome because we ourselves are forged by various races and cultures, and we do not judge others by mere race. Hence, comes the name of “AmeRican”, because we can make the American society a better place. The main subjects that I will focus on are the meanings embedded in the poem discussing only the most important parts, the relationship of the American and Puerto Rican culture and the tension that lies between them. I will also focus on one of the main ideas of the author: a utopian society conveyed by Puerto Rican culture.

Héctor Lavoe revolutionized the Latin salsa boom of the 1970s. He was a man born to sing and his passion for music led him on a remarkable journey of attaining endless dreams. Born Héctor Juan Perez Martinez on September 30, 1946 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, he lived a life full of achievements, setbacks, and tragedy that made a way for his life long addiction with cocaine, marijuana, and heroine. His drive to succeed in the music industry started in his early childhood years and was triggered by his idolization of famous Latin singers of the 30s and 40s like Daniel Santos, Jesús Sánchez Erazo, and the
The U.S.S. Arizona was a World War Two era battleship that was destroyed beyond repair during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The ship was built in the Brooklyn Navy Yard from 1914 to 1915. She was a 608 foot long, 31,400 ton, Pennsylvania-class battleship that cost sixteen-million dollars to build. It was christened in 1916 by Esther Ross with two bottles, one of water and one of wine by swinging the bottles on ropes to hit the bow, the front. The water bottle did not break in this process. The ship was originally to be named the U.S.S. North Carolina after the current Secretary of the Navy’s home state.
There are many urban legends that persist to this day. Some are told as traditions throughout families, while some are told as part of their culture. Urban legends are still told today because some people believe in certain legends, or want to scare others. One legend that is part of the Hispanic culture and is still told today is La Llorona/ The Weeping Woman.
The PT-305 was manufactured by Higgins Industries in New Orleans. The keel (foundation of the ship) was laid down on March 30, 1943 at the City Park Plant. The ship was launched on May 27, 1943 and was later completed at the Industrial Canal Plant on December 8, 1943. For the American Navy, the boat was a critical asset in the days after Pearl Harbor when the United States were short on larger vessels and facing an onslaught of attacks from the Japanese. The actions of PT boat crews in the Philippines and Solomon Islands represent an outstanding example of the American Spirit in action. The ship was used by the allies in WWII and for that reason I’m going to be explaining how the ship was made, from raw to materials to manufacturing plants,
