Thomas Jefferson’s Inaugural Address
Ethos –
“Utterly, indeed, should I despair did not the presence of many whom I here see remind me that in the other high authorities provided by our Constitution I shall find resources of wisdom, of virtue, and of zeal on which to rely under all difficulties.” In this section Jefferson names the first official document of America and states that it has provide and will provide the U.S. with everything it needs to be successful. Jefferson mentions his trust that he puts in the document and all that wrote it. Jefferson shows the citizens that because he and others made the document, they should be trusted, because the Constitution made America free from British rule. The Constitution unifies the U.S. also, it only states what need be, not things like divisions of political parties and what not.
Diction –
Jefferson’s constant use of words like us and we helps bring the U.S. together as a country regardless of whether you are federalist or democratic republican. It eases the tension between both parties.
Pathos – “Called upon to undertake the duties of the first executive office of our country, I avail myself of the presence of that portion of my fellow-citizens which is here assembled to express my grateful thanks for the favor with which they have been pleased to look toward me, to declare a sincere consciousness that the task is above my talents, and that I approach it with those anxious and awful presentiments which the greatness of the charge and the weakness of my powers so justly inspire.” Jefferson begins his address by telling us he is thankful for being elected President and he states that he is humble by saying that he will provide the nation with the best care possible, no matter the cost. This statement hardens the people’s belief that…...

I think talking things out & having someone to go to is great! I know from a personal stand-point, that one of my Soldiers always has something going on in her life. If I see she is complaining, getting work done slowly, or slacking off, then I know something is going on in her personal life. She and I speak about it, then I always tell my NCOIC & 1SG about what is going on. It helps that everyone is on the same page.

Response to Angels in America Act 1: Scene 7

...Response to Angels in America Act: Act One, Scene Seven. In scene seven, Prior and Harper share a “spiritual” moment as a dream for Prior and a hallucination for Harper. The scene serves to show us exactly how Prior is really handling his situation and allows Harper the realization that her husband is gay. The scene is also the first indication of the supernatural that we have in the play though it remains unexplained for now. Up until now Prior has seemed very accepting and light with Louis about his sickness and impending death, he seems to make light of it and joke about it like it doesn't bother him. In this scene we can see that there is more to it than Prior lets on as he sits at the makeup table lamenting how “one never gets what one wants” and how people “die at thirty, robbed of decades of majesty.” Prior is obviously in a down mood, but ends his monologue saying that he knows he's hit rock bottom when “even drag is a drag,” showing that he's so depressed that even his old passion isn't fun. Prior then shows up and neither person freaks out as they both realize that it is a dream, or hallucination in Harper's case. The conversation is very bleak, with Harper also speaking about hopelessness saying life is the “same old ordinariness and falseness rearranged into the appearance of novelty and truth.” The fantastical nature of the dream allows Harper to see that Prior is sick, which shocks him as he doesn't even know this woman. Harper explains that her......

Macro Article Response 1

...Article Analysis 1: Medicine After Oil In the article, Medicine After Oil, author Daniel Bednarz discusses the excessive usage of oil in the medical industry. America, as a whole, is extremely dependent upon the use of oil and natural gas in many areas. Bednarz makes the point that unless something changes in the healthcare system to reduce energy usage, the scarcity of oil could cause the medical system to collapse. With our medical system already in crisis, “The coming scarcity of fossil fuels, on top of inflationary costs of medicine…and the expenses of treating Baby Boomers,” explains Bednarz, could easily be all that it takes to break down the medical industry unless peak oil is used to recreate a better healthcare system. The issue that the medical industry is ultimately facing is due to the scarcity of oil and natural gas resources. Since scarcity is the imbalance between our desires and resources, we need to realize that our desires for healthcare are not always practical with our available resources. Bednez suggests that a better balance should be found by reconstructing the healthcare system in order to prevent a collapse. Another thing to keep in mind is that for each area in which we are using our resources, we are taking away our ability to use that resource for another application; thus using our resources in the medical field has an opportunity cost. Bednez discusses the fact that the United States spends more money on healthcare than some other......

Response to Client Request 1

...The purpose of this response is to determine the difference between direct finance leasing, sales-type leasing or an operating lease for Company ABC. To accomplish this, I will discuss a little background on all of the options and the advantages and disadvantages of a lease. This will aid company ABC in determining the best course of action for acquiring equipment in the future. First, what is a lease? “According to the Federal Accounting Standards Board (FASB), a lease is an agreement conveying the right to use property, plant, and equipment usually for a stated period of time” (Lee, 2003). Essentially a lease is an agreement between a lessee and lessor whereby the lessor “rents” their equipment to the lessee in return for a determined payment or series or payments over an agreed time period. SFAS No. 13 has specified criteria by which lease structures are classified into two basic types of leases, capital and operating leases. If all of the benefits and risk of ownership are transferred to the lessee, the FASB considers it to be a capital lease (Lee, 2003). The capital lease is then further classified in to a sales type lease and direct financing lease. A sales-type lease has a fair value amount different from its carrying amount (Lee, 2003). A sales-type lease can involve any type of property, plant and/or equipment. To be considered a capital lease it must do one of the following; (1) transfer of ownership to lessee, (2) option to purchase the property at a bargain......

American Studies 350 Exam Response 1

...Kevin Aquilo AMST 350 Final Exam: Response 1 California is the final destination for those who seek freedom and success. It is the state where dreams can become fulfilled and anything born from imagination can be physically built. California has spawned plenty of “built environments” in the twentieth and twenty-first century. Many of these environments were responses to things like the automobile craze, tourism, and celebrities. These built environments were constructed with the California Dream as their framework. We discussed many examples of built environments in class but there are three in particular that stood out to me. They are Hollywood, Disneyland, and the suburbs of Orange County. Hollywood was a small city with a post office, hotel, and a couple markets before the film industry took Hollywood by storm in the 1900s. Prior to Hollywood, major film companies were located in New Jersey. Filmmakers ventured to Los Angeles, California to break free from harsh movie producing patents and rules imposed on them by the Edison Motion Picture Company. The beautiful weather and diverse terrain of California were also ideal filming locations. Hollywood is an example of a built environment because filmmakers and producers saw the opportunity for success within the film industry and took advantage of it. The first film shot in Hollywood was titled Old California, and its success encouraged many out-of-state filmmakers to make their way to the golden state. It wasn’t......

Response Paper

...that follows the life of Sundiata, son of Maghan Kon Fatta and Sogolon and future King of the Kingdom of Mali. The history of the “lion prince” (Niane 14), is told by the griot Mamadou Kouyate many generations after Sundiata himself died in the 1200’s. It remained spoken only until scholars began publishing African oral tradition as stories in the mid-1900s. Mamadou Kouyate explains that his reason for telling the history of Mali in this fashion is, “…so that the lives of the ancients might serve them as an example, for the world is old, but the future springs from the past, (1).” The epic itself are plainly written words of an oral account, but that does not take away from the fact that the history and tale is a reliable source of information on the old kingdoms of Western Africa and the Kingdom of Mali specifically. Griots, like Mamadou Kouyate, were men who had ,”…learnt the art of historical oratory through long years…bound by an oath, (viii).” Though certain words are often changed when a person retells a story, Griots were raised from their youth and trained to retain exact details of a history in order to better retell it in the future. Griots were highly respected men who maintained traditions of their people and were often more than not advisers to the kings of Mali. Griots, “…for want of archives, records the customs, traditions and governmental principles of kings, (vii).” These men told history so it can be an example to learn from, the matter of whether it was......

...”(legomenon.com) Picasso completed the painting of Guernica in 1937, it was a time of political unrest not just in Spain, but worldwide. In Guernica, you can see several victims of the bombing, which you cannot tell if some are alive or dead. “A figure sprawled supine in the foreground of the painting appears to be a corpse and is framed on both sides by living victims with their heads thrown back, wailing in agony. The figure to the left is a mother clutching a baby who appears to have died during the bombing.”(Legomenon.com) “Humans and animals are on an equal footing in Picasso's Guernica, with the artist perhaps illustrating not only the simultaneous brutalization and dehumanization of humanity during wartime, but also the base, animalistic response that all living things, animals and humans, share in the face of fear and death.”(Legomanon.com) "If you give a meaning to certain things in my paintings it may be very true, but it is not my idea to give this meaning. What ideas and conclusions you have got I obtained too, but instinctively, unconsciously. I make the painting for the painting. I paint the objects for what they are." Pablo Picasso Shabi.K, 2013.

...Response to Client Request 1 Tiffaney Brown ACC/541 November 30, 2015 Kenneth Burton Memorandum To: | Jane Phoenix, supervisor | From: | Tiffaney Brown | Date: | November 30, 2015 | Re: | FASB research results | | | As you requested, I have completed the research on the lease types and lease structure issues on the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) website for the Lone Star Trucking Company. I did specific research on direct financing, sales type, and operating leases. After going over the information I have, I will provide you my recommendation for handling the client’s situation According to the FASB, both the client and the client’s potential new customer need to determine if their arrangement will meet one or more of these four criteria: 1. Transfer of ownership – the potential lease will transfer ownership of the property to the lessee at the end of the designated lease term (fasb.org). The client will have met this criterion if the lease agreement provides for the transfer of title at or shortly after the end of the lease term. Usually, there is a nominal fee that is required by statutory regulation to transfer title. 2. Bargain purchase option – the potential lease will contain a bargain purchase option, where the lessee will have the option to purchase the asset for a percentage less than the fair market value (fasb.org). 3. Lease term - the potential lease term is equal to 75 percent or more of the estimated economic life of...

Reading Response 1: Incentives

...Reading Response 1- Incentives I do not believe that children should be given incentives just to do better at something. If you are going to give your child money, make them work for it. Show them the value of a dollar and not the value of a letter grade. Children are required to go to school in order to learn and become educated. If your children want to do something or go out with friends and they need money have them work for it. There are chores they can do around the house like mowing the yard or taking out the trash and for every task done allot each one with a certain dollar amount. Show your child the value of a dollar and what it means to work for it. When I was in school, my father tried to bribe me with money for good grades. For every A I earned I got $20; if I got straight A’s I received $100. I believe the only reason he started this was for my younger sister who was having a hard time in school and he wanted her to focus more on her learning. In the end it did not really work and I ended up having to tutor her through most of her classes as we got older. Even though I was given the money, I would always share it with my sister and we would go to the movies or the arcade and just have fun. My children are now at the age where I can start giving them chores to do to help me out around the house. I have started them off with small things to do, like cleaning their room, taking out the bathroom trash, and helping me load the dishwasher. For......

...A TWO-PAGE RESPONSE TO CONRAD’S HEART OF DARKNESS This paper seeks to give a response to Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. Heart of Darkness centers on Marlow and his journey up on the Congo River to meet Kurtz, a civilizer. His quest reveals dehumanizing effects of colonialism and brutalities meted upon the people of Congo by the company’s agents and, he finally learns the truth about Kurtz, a universal genius. Colonialism, imperialism, savagery verses civilization, and racism are the most common issues explored in the book. My major appreciation of the novel lies in how Conrad presents the theme – the horrors associated with imperialism. His concrete descriptions paint various pictures that make it so real for readers to imagine and feel the pain and trauma of the natives of Congo during the era of colonialism. Imperialism is defined as the policy of forcefully extending a nation’s authority by the establishment of economic and political dominance (The Chambers Dictionary). Some textual evidence of the theme, horrors associated with imperialism, are presented below: Forthwith, the natives were made slaves by their colonial masters and were treated as savages. Marlow confirms this, ‘A slight clinking behind me made me turn my head…and all were connected together with a chain whose bights swung between them rhythmically clinking’ (p. 10). Another instance is revealed in the text by Marlow. He becomes the eye of narration for Conrad, and this process further adds to the many......

...loan will be structured. The longer the loan is scheduled to last, the more interest you will pay. A loan with a “higher allocation to principal to minimize the total long-term cost” (Ingram) is better to obtain than a loan that has more of your payment allocated to interest. Entrepreneurial characteristics and skills that need to be developed before running your own business are: managerial roles, interpersonal roles, informational roles, and decisional roles. These roles are vital to any successful business. The entrepreneur must be able to hold these roles “comfortably while performing the basic management functions” (Bovee, 2012). Advice that I would give to someone thinking about starting his or her own business includes: 1) Make a business plan; 2) Use available resources; 3) Don’t let the fear of failure hold you back.

Response Paper 1-Flood Accounts

...Response Paper: Gilgamesh and Old Testament Question: Is the biblical flood account a modified copy of the Epic of Gilgamesh? The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Old Testament have their similarities as well as differences. The Epic of Gilgamesh is supposedly a mythical tale, while the Old Testament has proven to be true facts. I feel as if the biblical flood account can’t possibly be a modified copy of the Epic of Gilgamesh because while Gilgamesh is a myth, the Old Testament is a proven true story; notable differences between the two accounts and thirdly, because the word of God tells no tales. Even though “Gilgamesh is the first recorded heroic narrative of world literature (Chambers)”, God is the creator of the world so he had the power to actually make the flood occur even if he did get the idea from that tale. Since it is said that our God is an omniscient God or all-knowing; wouldn’t that mean that he in all actuality created Gilgamesh? I hope you can understand where I am trying to go with this argument because I know what I want to say, but it is so complex that it is hard to explain. I guess that is how it goes when it comes to discuss religion and history! Basically, my stance for saying that it is not a modification is because the Epic of Gilgamesh is not as realistic as the biblical account. ‘The gods were frightened by the flood, and retreated, ascending to the heaven of Anu. The gods were cowering like dogs, crouching by the outer wall (Clinton, Irele, , , , and et...
