The author proves the falsehood of the long known assumption that plastic is a threat to our planet. By citing the research done by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the author convinces his readers that not only are plastic bags not harmful as people think, but also beneficial. This surprises his audience and shows them how exaggerated the cries of environmentalists, which gets the readers wondering what else have they falsely believed in and what other information are paper-bags advocates hiding from them, and that pulls them into the argument and intrigues them further. Additionally, Summers lists the harmful consequences of using reusable bags by presenting research results and observations. This alarms the audience and raises concern in their
Avital loves soccer. She plays on her school team and on an out of school team. She is good too. Carmel and I like soccer. I used to play soccer and Carmel still plays it. But we don’t love it like Avital does. And our parents didn’t get us soccer socks and cleats like they did for Avital. Avital has black and white long Nike socks and black and white Nike cleats. And she has matching black and white Nike shin guards.
In many instances, individuals neglect to acknowledge the importance of school and a higher education. The individuals who view education as their number one priority see staying in school is important. Why is it important? Is staying in school going to benefit the student/individual? In this essay, I will explain why the literate arts are important and for what they are good. I will also give the opinions of others and what my views are.
That is the world of video games. Today, with all of the game consoles video games have been an important part of the sports market. “A generation of young gamers is hooked to FIFA’s soccer on their Xbox or Playstation. I console myself that when my kid is seemingly lost to the hypnotic powers of the video game, he is actually learning about other countries” (Martinez, Andrés). Soccer is reaching into every facet of society just like all football, baseball, and basketball. This has kids learning the finer aspects of the game. They even learn the strategy and who the players are. Then come time for the World Cup, they are not clueless about who is good and who is not. They even know which players play for which club teams. This allows them to actually have people that they are rooting for instead of just their home country. Video games are just another way that soccer is starting to permeate the American
There are many things that go into affecting the way that Americans receive soccer. The idea that the game itself is a foreign game, that it wasn’t created here by Americans, is something that some people use to put it into a negative light. That is a polarizing perspective, because for other people, they take a liking to the game because of the fact that it is something different, and that if they themselves are from a different part of the world, this is something that is more comfortable for them to take an interest in. It’s almost as if the two of you have something in common, and even something as subtle as that is why many people pique their interest in the game. Some people who claim to be truly American are quick to judge things that are not deemed “American” under their own definitions of what makes something American. Meanwhile, if you look at America itself, the whole basis of it was that it was a magnificent melting pot of many different
Plastic is everywhere. People use it every day, in everything. There is no possible way to live 100% without plastic in this day and age. Plastic is made with natural oils. Monomers form when molecules connect together, then chain up to create Polymers. When this happens, it creates the substance everyone knows of -- plastic. Plastic is polluting the ocean and contaminating our drinking water, but at the same time plastic has proven to be convenient and versatile for our everyday use.
It all started out on July 21st of 1987 when I first noticed my boy, Ethan who named me Toby. As I watched Ethan grow and figure out his life, I protected and cared for him. I believe that was my purpose to serve for him. When I died, I felt satisfied thinking that I had served my purpose, but I was unaware of many new people to meet and for more adventures that were ahead of me. In a later life when I was named Buddy, I remember being the companion of someone I have met before. She was a girl named Hannah. Hannah and Ethan had grown up together and "fell in love" as many humans say although I did not really understand the meaning of that phrase at the time. Ethan and Hannah had a grand child named Clarity. At the beginning if another new life, I made it my mission to find Clarity so I could protect her
Therefore, I’ve expected several struggles here and there, but there was no any struggle between the two teams’ devotees. Additionally, they were very friendly to each. This could indicate several possible assumptions. Maybe, soccer isn’t one of the sports that blowing the U.S fans zeal, or perhaps it’s a society pattern to have the coexistence with whom they’re disagreeing with. Possibly, it’s the absence of the dominance of the unilateral opinion. For me, it was a clear sign of the lack of the conflict perspective, or at least the conflict perspective is at a low level compared with other nations. This could be a result of the democratic atmosphere nature of the American people, which led to a higher containment for all parties. This tolerance toward different opinions became a norm in the U.S, that could be categorized as an interactionist perspective. However, I am not sure how this is relatively accurate as being a bigot or exclusionary to others who have a different point of view is not seeming to be completely socially
Plasticity is the ability to be molded or change while still holding a specific durability. Plastic does not refer to the hard bowl you put your leftovers in instead, it's referring to that bowl's ability to be molded into a new shape with the right effort without breaking. It is possible for an old dog to learn new tricks. I work at an electronic cigarette store, selling better alternatives to cancer sticks. I have to convince people who have been smoking one to three packs a day for up to fifty years to stop. I have seen people give up, but I have also watched people change. I have listened to their stories about how they never thought they could smoke their last cigarette by choice. I hear about how much better they feel, how good things smell and taste now that they have their life back. I get to help people learn to better themselves by kicking a bad habit. On a daily basis, I witness first hand how plastic a person's development really

The commodity specific in the sense that it hinges on the very special power of clothing, both old and new for. They implicate one another, and as such it may not apply to explanations of how the materialization of evanescence and constancy plays out for the case of other commodities. This special power of clothing derives from the ability of the dressed body to mediate both individual and collective identities and desires.
