The object we use twice a day, and neglect quite a bit has proven to be one of the most successful devices to prevent gum disease if used. 7 in 10 Americans use it daily, and in a world with a population of 7.5 billion people, only 4.2 billion people own them, while 5.1 billion own a phone.(Hopkins Jeanne) Each one of them costs around 2 dollars, while the electric ones cost up to 4,000 dollars. (Green, Dennis)This device was voted as the number-one invention that most Americans could not live without. In fact, the average person spends 2,920 dollars a year on this.(How much could you potentially spend on toothbrushes?) While the average American spends 38.5 days of their life using it.( Hygiene, Oral) The toothbrush has to be one of most magnificent devices ever created, from whitening your teeth to making sure you have good hygiene, the toothbrush has made the impossible possible. To understand and learn about this miracle. We will first brush our way through it’s interesting and unique history. Second, we will rinse through why we should only use our brushes and not anyone else’s. Third, we learn about Ordontalophobia. Lastly, we will learn how to pick the perfect brush for us and how an old invention as the brush is still thriving.
Michael Jordan once stated, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb over it, go through it, or walk around it.” This inspirational quote motivated many to overcome adversity when challenged by it. The texts, Speak by Laurie Anderson, “Third and Final Continent” by Lahiri Lahiri, and “The Art of Resilience” by Hara Marano, all have themes similar to Jordan’s quotation. All three articles support this through symbolism, foreshadowing, and character interactions. A common theme that one must stay resilient in order to overcome challenges while also staying level-headed during the positive and negatives is shown in Speak, “The Third and Final Continent,” and “The Art of Resilience.”
We live in an age in which we are granted with seemingly limitless power, technology and resources; the golden age of the technological era. Only, we’re not. The global population is at an all time high, and only rising as quickly as the mercury in the thermometer on my window (which, needless to say, is incredibly fast) whilst food security is dwindling, the threat level is red, people. Red! Of course, the “easiest” solution to this would be a Hunger Games-esque battle royal for the working class, and a gruesome spectator event for fat-cats and their corporate societies. But, fortunately, corporate lust for blood hasn’t yet extended to the blood of man, just the blood of workers; meaning we’ll instead turn to science to solve the problem for
“Hey guys! This is the last communication you shall receive from me. I now walk out to live amongst the wild. Take care, it was great knowing you” (Qtd. In Krakauer 69). After graduating from Emory University, Christopher McCandless abandoned everything, gave his entire savings account to charity, and then hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wild. In the novel, Into the Wild, Was McCandless justified in shunning society? McCandless was justified in shunning society because he simply wanted to find himself and be independent without any distractions from his friends or family.
In the book “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger, the story describes Holden Caulfield as a mystery man that a rReader would have to find clues to discover the hidden truth behind him. Holden is afraid to go into the adult world and he wishes he can stay in his childhood world, because Holden wants to avoid the adults world phoniness and it's painful for holden to grow up; knowing thats he’s been through so much as a boy and how he has heard so many lies growing up.
“This fall I think you’re riding ride--it’s a special kind of fall, a horrible kind. The man falling isn’t permitted to feel or hear himself hit bottom. He just keeps falling and falling. The whole arrangement’s designed for men who, at some time other in the lives, we're looking something their own environment couldn’t supply them with. Or they thought their own environment couldn’t supply them with. So they gave looking. They gave it up before they really even got started.” Antonelli said to Holden. Kicked out of 5 school, Holden faces his struggle with commitment in terms of holding things close to him when he can’t hold himself together. The environment around Holden wasn’t something he fit into easily because we get the sense that he couldn’t find something he had a deep interest in other than getting into trouble and alcohol. He judges other people by what they wear, and how they say things, but this hypocrisy surely didn't get him
Confronting an injustice in this world requires every individual to take responsibility for his actions. If an individual is aware of their fight and devotes himself to it, he must work to cause whatever small change he can. However, there is strength in numbers, and nobody should attempt to fight a larger fight on their own, lest they become discouraged at their failures.
In the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini Amir experiences the rape of his best friend he decides to be a coward and keep running from his guilt just making his life miserable. Amir later on receives an important phone call asking him to return to his home country Afghanistan he then decides its time to redeem himself by demonstrating courage.
“For you, a thousand times over” is probably the most famous quote in the book The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. It is the best book I have ever read and I could not ever read it again. I don’t think this book is the best in terms of grammar, or writing style, or any other technical criteria to consider it as the “best” book. On the cover of the book given to me there was a review from The New York times where it said “Powerful… Haunting.” and it is the most accurate way to describe how I felt about it. It was the first book I read that after the last word on the book, I had to take a moment because of the overwhelming emotions I felt.
27. If I could live inside any video game, it would have to be Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
“Destroying things is much easier than making them” says Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games. This novel was released in September of 2008.

There is a quote that Plato once said to his students; “Only the dead have seen the end of war.” (Plato, goodreads.com). This quote tells us that there are always sacrifices to be made in war. People suffer and die, and that is a shameless fact. It is, however, unbefitting of someone to die or suffer because of someone else’s actions. In fact, the story “The Golden Kite, the Silver Wind” just so happens to be a metaphor for the Cold War, which took place between 1947 and 1991 when America and Russia collided. This caused their people to endure a massive amount of stress and tension, which lasted approximately 50 years. In this
Why spend money that is really needed for other things? Why live uncomfortably? Why be trapped in this hole called a home that belongs to another person? Why not live free and peacefully? When a person rents he or she usually throws away money that could be used to purchase something that belongs to them. Money is not easy to come by so why pay out hundreds toward something that is not benefit to the person paying it out. There is no good explanation for making a decision like this. The best option in a situation like this is to buy a house. Buying a house is a better option than renting an apartment.
