Rhetorical Analysis Matt Lamkin’s “A Ban On Brain-Boosting Drugs is Not the Answer” first appeared in Chronicle of Higher Education in 2011. In this essay Lamkin aims to convince his reader not to deter improper conduct with threats, but to encourage students to engage in the practice of education. Lamkin tells us “If colleges believe that enhancing cognition with drugs deprives students of the true value of education, they must encourage students to adapt that value as their own” (642). Appeal to logic, consistency, and compare/contrast are techniques Lamkin skillfully uses to create a strong effective essay.

The focus throughout Tuesdays with Morrie was on life. Many might see it as the story of death, but it is actually the story life. Morrie might talk a little on how he meets death, but what he is talking about is living at the end of his life. Mitch writes, “Now here we were . . . . . . Dying man talks to living man, tells him what he should know.”(Albom, 133) When a timer is placed on Morrie’s remaining days, he obtains a dying man’s perspective on what is truly important in life, and how to incorporate in life this importance. I looked for parts of the book that pertain directly to my life; I focused on this concept while reading this book. My thesis remained elusive. There wasn’t a Tuesday that jumped out at me, and then I came to the

Every child wants his or her father’s love. In April Morning, Adam Cooper (Chad Lowe) does not feel cherished from his father. In fact Adam feels that his father hates him, and would not care less if he did not exist. While this of course is not true, Adam strives to earn respect from his father Moses Cooper (Tommy Lee Jones) throughout the movie. This strife allows Adam to defend Lexington effectively. April Morning shows the values of striving to live up to the expectations of one’s parents, is entertaining, and is mostly historically accurate.

Tuesdays with Morrie. The symbolic interactionism is an excellent sociological perspective that allows us to focus on micro activities and to analyze our society which is the product of everyday’s life. Tuesdays with Morrie is more than a simple book, more than a romance one; it is a great book that teaches us many of life’s greatest lessons. An analysis of this book using the SI perspective and concepts such as meaning making, status, impression management, looking-glass self, role taking, role making, and self-presentation helps us understand the real meaning of Morrie’s words and lessons.

In Tuesdays with Morrie there are many important life lessons; in fact there are so many that it was hard to choose the three that I thought were the most important. In order to pick just three I had to think about the lessons I need to focus on in my life, the lessons I need to remind myself of daily. Everyone needs reminders in their daily lives to keep them going and remind them of what is important. Life gets busy, and I often times lose focus of what is truly important and the lessons in Tuesdays with Morrie was the reminder I needed to slow down and focus on what is important in life.
The Tragedy of Macbeth and Hank A character's downfall is likely to result from weakness and circumstances. This is clearly seen in the character of Macbeth in Macbeth by William Shakespeare and Hank in the movie A simple plan directed by Sam Raimi. The downfall of Macbeth is more due to weakness whereas circumstance is the major reason for Hank's. Internal reasons such as ambition, guilt, weakness, and external reasons like pressure from others or circumstances make both Macbeth and Hank unable to avoid the downfall.
Essay #1: Doctor and Patient Relationship The doctor-patient relationship always has been and will remain an essential basis of care, in which high quality information is gathered and procedures are made as well as provided. This relationship is a critical foundation to medical ethics that all doctors should attempt to follow and live by. Patients must also have confidence in their physicians to trust the solutions and work around created to counter act certain illnesses and disease. Doctor-patient relationships can directly be observed in both the stories and poems of Dr. William Carlos Williams as well as in the clinical tales of Dr. Oliver Sacks. Both of these doctors have very similar and diverse relationships with multiple patients
The first day of school is nerve-wracking for most people, for me, the first day was especially terrifying. The first day of a college class is probably more crazy than all others. My mom and younger sister, Michaela, were busy taking pictures as I attempted to run out of the door. After being homeschooled for the last six years, I knew it would be a much different experience. I had been in my room alone doing school; I was content with where I was. The morning of the first day of class, I was so busy that I didn’t have time to be nervous. However, as I ran out the door, my heart rate elevated to a pace of 138 bpm. I felt older, nervous, excited, and anxious as I left for Pellissippi. Although it had been six years since I had been in a classroom, I realized that all of my worry was for nothing once I walked into Ms. Brown’s class.
