The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is a government website that provides information about various diseases, disabilities, disorders, etc.. The CDC provides multiple webpages about Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) that list and provide information about causes, treatments, variations, and signs/symptoms of the disorder. On their informative pages, they use rhetorical devices to better portray their message. The CDC effectively uses the three rhetorical devices, pathos, ethos, and logos, to reach their goal of informing their target audience and providing a clear perspective on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Authors who are not from the scientific community appear to be more assertive about their claims as compared to experts of the field. In the following rhetorical analysis, I explore the differences in original research articles tailored toward experts and pop science articles which target a general audience. The pop science article is, “Immune System, Unleashed by Cancer Therapies, Can Attack Organs”, written by Matt Richtel of the New York Times. I compare this with the original research article, “Checkpoint blockade cancer immunotherapy targets tumour-specific mutant antigens” by Gubin et al., published in Nature journal. Both articles talk about the cutting-edge research in the field of cancer immunotherapy. Cancer immunotherapy gets rid of tumors by using the body’s immune system to target cancer cells. Gubin et al.’s article uses genomics and bioinformatics to compare therapeutic synthetic long-peptide vaccines with the working of immunotherapy drugs. Richtel’s article discusses the
Individualism is a habit of being self- reliant. A cultural value is a persons desired and preferred way of acting. Every culture has their own cultural values and individualism but whether individualism is their cultural value is up to the person entirely. This could pose a conflict when persuading the wrong culture especially a culture as diverse as the American culture. Poranee Sponsel is a born and raised Thai who is now a professor at a university in Hawaii and gives us the outsider’s perspective of the American culture. In Sponsel’s article “The Young, the Rich, and the Famous: Individualism as an American Cultural value” Sponsel
One assignment I’ve done well on this year is the letter we wrote to Anne Northrup. In the letter we had to use primarily: ethos, pathos, and logos to convince Mrs.Northrup to do something we would like her to do. On this particular assignment, my improvement on using these rhetorical devices was evident. I chose to use this assignment as backing evidence for my improvement on the use of ethos, pathos, and logos, because this it contains the best evidence for me to do so. All the rhetorical devices I used were highly effective such as these: “Aren’t college owners rich enough already?” and “Would free college for all U.S. citizens hurt owners even in the slightest way?”.
Wild is the story of Cheryl Strayed and her solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. During this 1,100 mile journey from the Mojave Desert to the Bridge of the Gods in Washington, she comes to terms with her mother’s death, and becomes her own person. Much of the book is devoted to instances that occurred before she began to hike the trail, including the disintegration of her family, her affairs and eventual divorce, and her heroin addiction. She decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail almost immediately after her husband discovers her infidelity and divorces her, despite the fact that they still love each other. She discovers early on that she is unprepared to hike the trail and almost quits, but she meets many people along the way who are willing to teach her and inspire her to keep going. She suffers many injuries, but she continues on, and along the way she makes her peace with her mother’s death and lets go of her anger and grief. Strayed relies heavily on several rhetorical strategies, but most specifically she focuses on chronology,
F-A-T. Fat, fat, fat. Usually this word has a bad connotation attached, linked, or embedded into it. Being fat shouldn’t be looked down upon or be ashamed of since F.A.T is a Freaking Amazing Thing. I believe we were all made differently with our own ways to flaunt or exude our natural beauty. You are uniquely you.
It's obvious to see that Saroo's brother, Montosh, suffers from a mental disability it is unclear of its exact diagnosis or what triggers his episodes, maybe prior mistreatment, but it causes him to physically harm himself. I believe that Chapter 2’s concepts of Attitude, Beliefs, and Values applies the most to his situation. Our attitude “is a learned predisposition to respond to a person, object, or idea in a favorable or unfavorable way” pg31, he can't seem to distinct or just according in his home after arrival. from the airport, he almost immediately goes into an episode 2 to either his confusion and his surroundings or the television itself. But even with his adoptive parents carefully tried to help him cope and deal with his episode he continues to
I listened to an older recording of a radio airing show. Rebecca, the host of the radio broadcasting show, arranged for Dr. Stephen Covey to share his theories and philosophies on a subject valued to him and many others. He communicated on the topic of having a family mission statement. He has published several books that also encourage the equivalent manner and viewpoint as his broadcast, one specifically is the book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families. Dr. Covey offers advice for helping to become better parents and raise more loving and closer families. He aims to convince his listeners that effective families need a family mission statement. He suggests how a family mission statement leads families to not
The College Composition and Communication journal published the article titled “Identifying and Teaching Rhetorical Plans for Arrangement” by JoAnne and Leonard Podis which provides methods that students can utilize to arrange writing pieces. The authors explain that the structure of the writing can influence the readers’ retention and understanding of the information and the arrangement of the text can improve the text readability. The article then lists the different plans of arrangements which are “obvious before remarkable”, “presentation before refutation”, “explanation before complication”, solvable before unsolvable”, “agreement before disagreement”, “literal before symbolic”,
Greetings and thanks for the post! Greetings and thank you for the post! I admire your quotations and the way you correlated the methods and practices that were demontrated in the Old Testament vice the new. Your example in paragraph 5 was spot on with regards to numerous examples of women in positions of leadership such as Phoebe the deacon/minister, Pricilla and Aquila, coworkers with Paul, and perhaps Junia as an apostle” I support women and thier dedicated service to the ministry. As Christians , we are all called to serve the Almighty God.
This phrase is the speaker detailing things that they like. This gives the readers the opportunity to realize that the speaker and his classmates are not that different. The white and the colored people might have different skin colors, but they do some of the same things. They speaker understands that they are actually pretty . Everyone is part of one race - the human race, so there should not be any
LGBT representation is a touchy subject, and Amy is one of the few brave enough to explore the topic. However, she left more than a few holes in her argument, biting off more than she could chew. Her position on the misrepresentation of bisexuals in TV was ineffective at persuading her audience, because of her lack of concrete evidence, misdirection of audiences, and contradictory statements.
Literary texts tend to be simpler and easier to read than academic papers. Literary texts have many elements and characteristics that are unique to them. For example, in literary texts multiple interpretations are allowed and often a sentence can have an underlying meaning. For academic papers a stance is
