During my persuasive speech, I used an attention getter with a story to put a face on the problem of the 5-day work week because it is something for the audience to get attached to. In my attention getter, Jeff Campbell suffers from a stroke from working long hours as an accountant. I believe it was effective in showing pathos to the problem of the 5-day work week. In my thesis, I clearly stated the topic and related it to my audience by telling them that it will affect all full-time employees in America. To conclude my introduction, I gave a preview of the what I was going to talk about during my speech, which included the problems, causes, and solutions.
I am sure that everyone of you have heard about aliens and UFOs. Indeed, we all have heard about the famous case of aliens and UFOs in Roswell, New Mexico. Most people might be interested in the topic of aliens, but I know that the majority of you just think of it as rumours and the existence of them are impossible. Therefore, I am standing here in front all of you to make you change your perspective. I am strongly confident that I have found the evidence of their real existence to convince all of you.
It’s been half a month since Connor killed himself. Believe it or not, I think the kids at school are starting to forget. Starting to move on, like some new movie release or concert tour outweighs the death of a fellow student. It’s kind of frustrating, you know? It’s hard to believe that something so relevant and big can be dropped so easily. I don’t think it’s right.
This happened about an year after I immigrated to the United States. I attended Buena Park High school, and every friend I made there was Korean as known as F.O.B, fresh off the boat. I was just a teenager who would like to hang out with friends and mess around like all other normal teenage boys. My friend, Young, always liked to
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
It was October 6, 1998 when he was lured from the bar that cold, fateful night. His skull was smashed with a pistol butt as he was lashed to a fence, left for dead in near freezing temperatures. Nearly eighteen hours later he was found by passersby and taken to a hospital where we remained in a coma for several days until slowly slipping away. At his funeral, picketers carried signs saying, "God Hates Fags" and *Fags Deserve to Die."
Have you served in a war? Has your father or mother served in a war? How about your grandpa? As we honor those who have served we typically do so by standing for the pledge of allegiance or star spangled banner. We say thank you to our war heroes or we go and visit them and listen to their stories. In this paper I will be discussing why NFL players should not be allowed to kneel for the flag. Although the NFL players have the right to peacefully protest, they should find a different way than kneeling as it shows disrespect towards the flag also active duty military and veterans, it teaches young children this behavior is okay, what they are protesting has nothing to do with the flag and there are many different ways to get their message out.
Students at Palmyra Area High School should not be allowed to display information supporting the display of the Confederate Flag in the atrium. The flag is seen as a controversial symbol, and can allow disruption to happen throughout the school. Supporting the flag is seen as a something throughout heritage, however, the flag can also be seen as racist. Throughout school hours, the school has the privilege to monitor the student's free speech, attempting to make the school a place that all the students want to be.
We have four lights that are out in the new section of the building. I do not think it is the bulbs because they stopped working at the same time. Also, the light in the waiting area continues to flicker and the bulb has been changed. Would you please have someone look into his for me?
“Not bad for 8 months pregnant, so I am not feeling too great… Really quick—I called to talk to you about our 4-year-old,” the pregnant woman said in a panicking, exhausted voice, “He is having trouble understanding that he will have a baby brother in a few weeks. He wants to name him ‘Pig.’”
Very early on when I was growing up, my parents would push me to do better in school and at my baseball games. For me going to school and practice keep on getting repetitive so as a young kid, I did what anyone would do, I started getting lazy and started to slack off. Don’t get me wrong I still keep on doing most of my homework and I still went to practice, I just didn’t put in the effort to do better that I knew I can. But after this game, this one game where it came down to the wire, I had experienced the most tragic lost in my baseball career. And to this day, I’ll never forget the words that my grandpa told me after the game…
My fellow Huaorani we are facing a mass extinction. If we don’t act soon the tradition we have set up will disappear completely. The oil companies are trying to take over the ground beneath us because there is oil. They will stop at nothing to continue to make a profit and will show no mercy to us doing so. They look at us as if we are not even human, they show no respect for our traditions or our way of life.
