As cell phones become more popular, texting while driving is becoming the most widely known cause for car accidents among teens. The alarming rate of incidents where texting is involved is getting more parents worried and warning their children about the danger of texting while driving. Parents are urging the fact that drivers should pay attention to the road and traffic, not their phones. A popular study of 18 to 24 year old drivers showed that 66 percent of them have texted while driving. Since texting while driving is becoming more popular many states are passing a law to ban the use of any cell phone device while in a vehicle. Texting while driving is an important issue that is causing many deaths and those who cause these deaths and
The clear distinction comes with the content of the pictures and again it revolves around the interests of organizations: money and social issues. One major difference and an unexpected part was the ad for Oracle in the WSJ which took up as much space if not more than the Reid commentary, the Russian test, or even the picture from the Atlanta crisis. The length of the Google article was also distinct, where the NYT gave a full column, the WSJ gave it a small paragraph. Another point to note is the display and position of the headlines or newsfeed. The WSJ had two broad
This alphanumeric combination allows the state’s administrative agency, usually the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles, to identify the owner or operator of that vehicle. In addition to these assigned standard license plates, the owner or operator of the vehicle may elect to buy a specialty and/or vanity license plate. These personalized plates
The first article is a new article written by BBC. The article they wrote is not rhetorically effective because of all the missing components. The BBC article is written in the organizational method of narration. The method of organization is extremely obvious since the author is not making any connection with the audience just stating facts. BBC states in their article, "Diana, Princess of Wales, has died after a car crash in Paris" (BBC np). The author is too formal and does not give any emotion throughout the paper. Since the connection with the audience is lacking, part of the rhetorical triangle is missing making the article ineffective. The audience part of the triangle relates to pathos, and since the thought of audience is missing from the article pathos is not present. Despite the fact many things are missing in the article, logos and ethos are present. BBC establishes ethos because they are a new station, and people trust the news and what they say. Logos is established through the article because the wording is very straightforward in delivering facts about the
When comparing both articles’ online webpage, you can see the four main principles of design being followed: contrast, repetition, alignment, and proximity. The contrast can be seen in both articles with their black wording against a white background. The repetition is evident in the fact that the same fonts and colors are used throughout the website and all of its articles, respectively. Alignment can be seen from both articles having their main article on the left, advertisements at the bottom, and latest news on the right. Finally, proximity can be seen in both articles when they group similar topics together and have links to different topics. Along with the webpage being formatted identically, the article itself is also formatted in a similar method. Both articles have a big, bolded headline that attracts the attention of the reader, use quotes from people involved, and present pictures as proof. In the Associated Press article, the author included quotes from the vice president of flight reliability for SpaceX and included a picture of the SpaceX rocket (Dunn). In the article from The Onion, the author included quotes from the president of Planned Parenthood and a picture of the “abortionplex” along with it’s floor plan. The Onion’s article obviously fabricated the quotes and pictures. One thing that sets the two articles apart, however, is that The Onion included the volume and issue of paper to create a greater sense of reliability. This explains why people mistake the article as a legitimate piece of journalism. The next step is to explain how the author uses the genre of journalism to incorporate the genre of satire.
A Comparison of Two Newspaper Articles In this essay I will be comparing two articles taken from local
Teen driving is unsafe and dangerous, teen driving is the leading cause of teenage deaths in the United States with more than 5,000 teens dying a year. 17 year old Weston Griggs, killed himself and the 2 passengers he had in his car. But, this accident was no accident. Weston was going 70 mph in a 40 mph speed zone. The issue in this story is that young drivers like Weston, inexperienced and full of adrenaline are just hurting them selves and others by getting behind the wheel at such a young age. Teens between the ages 15 through 17 do not belong on the road. Outrageous amounts of teens are dying every year and these numbers are not changing, so why keep them on the road? Teen driving in the United States have three main problems
The license plate reader is also looks after the well being of an officer in that after picking up a dangerous criminal, an officer will seek back up or will know how to approach such a situation rather than where an officer flags down a suspect not knowing how dangerous the criminal is.

Used Car – Exercise 4 Our issue is that we need a new vehicle because ours was wrecked and the rental car we were given to use after the wreck by the insurance company is about to expire, leaving us no mode of transportation. We are looking into buying a used vehicle from an advertisement in the local paper. We weren’t sure if the vehicle was still available so we have called the owner and inquired. We do not know who we are buying the car from but we are interested in purchasing the Volkswagen Jetta because of the advertisement in our local newspaper. Just from reading the car ad; we deem that the car fits all our needs and we need to get in touch with the owner fast in order to make sure they don’t sell it to someone else.
New York Daily News, and the Washington Post) have also declined. Hèctor Tobar, a Latin American author and a reporter at the Los Angeles Times, says that the Times has “failed to represent the large Spanish-speaking community” and says that there is a “growing divide between news writers and news consumers.” In his
It was a cold December night shortly after dusk, a likely setting for an event that would prove to be life altering. As fate would have it, this would be the night that I lost the material possession that truly meant the most to me. I would lose the one thing that gave me much pride and joy and excitement. I often think back and liken us to a newlywed couple, for we had only been together for 18 months and were still very much honeymooning. It was a night, a moment, that even now scoffs and mocks me as I travel thither and yonder with her replacement. But she can never be truly replaced and to call my current fix a replacement seems like a sort of blasphemy.
Since I was a child, I have always dreamed I could have a car which belongs to me. I still remembered when I was four years old, my parents gave me a remote control car as my birthday gift. After that day I started to fall in love with cars.
The Used Car ROLE INFORMATION FOR THE SELLER You have agreed to buy a new Subaru from a dealer. The down payment you will need to make on the new car is $9,400, which lets you take out a loan with manageable (but steep) monthly payments. You are low on ready cash, so if you can't come up with the down payment by selling your Volkswagen Jetta, you will have to borrow it at prime plus 5% interest. You are supposed to pick up the Subaru first thing tomorrow morning, so you want to sell the Jetta today.
