How I choose my car
When choosing a car there are multiple things that I look into. I have provided some of the things that I look for below.
Make of car
The first thing I want to decide is what make of car im wanting. With all the options this decision also goes hand in hand with what type of vehicle im wanting. For example if im going to get a truck im more likely to stay with Ford. Where if im going for a van I would stay with Chrysler
Deciding on type/model of vehicle
So after deciding who I want to get a vehicle from I now need to figure out what kind of vehicle im wanting. When I made the first choice of who I was getting a vehicle from I already had a general idea of what I was wanting but its in this stage that I comb it with a fine tooth comb.
Deciding on any premiums.
So now that I have picked my vehicle out lets choose the cool stuff. What color do I want on it? What sound system or premium upgrades do I want on it? Do I want dvd players in the back for the kids? Or would I prefer to have a navigation system in the front? Or would I want everything upgraded to the max?
Now we look at pricing.
Now we have to deal with the bad stuff pricing. Nobody likes this but its important that your getting the most out of your money. Once I have one price I would leave the dealer with nothing. Check around at other places can anybody beat those prices. You also would want to do some heart searching. Are you sure you want this vehicle and all the extras you choose.
The final decision.
So now we have choosen the make, kind, upgrades, and pricing. Its time to sign the papers and drive off the lot with our new vehicle. But guess what the choices still exist. Now we have to decide what kind of gas we want to use regular? Maybe premium? Then oil what kind? The bottom line is lookover all your choices and make the…...

...Walking into the carnival the first thing I notice is the ticket booths. The ticket booth has red, white and blue flashing lights. I can see all different type of people running around young and old. It looks as though there are several hundred people at the carnival. The smell of cotton candy and popcorn is very strong in the air. There is a giant Ferris wheel turning in the sky. I can see the people that are on the ride waving their hands, kicking their feet and screaming to the top of their lungs. The kids are having such a wonderful time as they slam into each other while driving the bumping cars. I see people standing in line at the food booths waiting to purchase some of the cuisine which include hot dogs, hamburger, and seafood just to name a few. As the music from the band echos across the carnival grounds, I see people dancing to the tunes that the band is playing. The crowd is excited. They are sweating as they are thudding their feet, and swaying their arms. I’m looking at all the smiles that are on the people’s faces which make me believe that everyone is having a wonderful time at the carnival. The first thing that I took into consideration when writing my description was the audience. I was explaining the carnival to my friend who had on a blindfold. I also considered the type of descriptive language that I would use to evoke the senses and set the tone. Setting the tone is an important element that is used to engage your audience. It is also important to......

...EN1320 Research Paper Final Draft Gun Control In America Today In the United States there is a need for better gun control legislature, but some Activists are beginning to intrude on United States citizen’s second amendment rights. John Paul Stevens a former member of the U.S. Supreme Court believes we should change the second amendment. Then people who feel that all guns should only be in the hands of law enforcement and military personnel. Some feel that there is only a need for simple back ground checks and a wait time until the person can be properly cleared to own a firearm. A new form of gun control are a new gun manufactures that believe the future of the industry and gun safety is in smart weapons which can only be fired by the registered owner. This is a issue that has been debated on for many years for one reason or another while the gun control law has made few changes its a issue that needs attention and change. I feel the current laws do need changing but do not need to be pushed so far that the rights of the citizens should take a back seat to the Gun Control issue. Former U.S. Supreme Court member John Paul Stevens feels that the only way to have gun control is to change the second amendment. His feelings are that most pro gun Activists misunderstands the second amendment. The second amendment states “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of......

...EN1320 Final Research Paper | The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it. (Gen. 2:15, Revised Standard Version) In the beginning man was given the responsibility for keeping the earth. As good care takers it’s our responsibility to ensure the survival of all the animals and plants on earth. The earth is made up of elements, and within those elements are the countless numbers of species, each interwoven within the fabric of life itself. The effects of man on the environment have a negative reaction to all other species. Studies of earth’s history show mass extinction events. Scientist project we are living within such an event. The world is heading toward imminent mass species extinction. A healthy earth may not be possible due to the irreversible effect brought on my man. Endangered plants and animals face the risk of becoming extinct, disappearing completely from the world of living things. Human survival has had such an effect on all other species around them. Hunting, fishing, or gathering may have reduced the populations of many species to levels too low for the species to survive, especially when there is a profitable trade in goods made from wild animals and plants. (Current Issues, 2010) The Earth should be big enough of all plants and animals to thrive but according to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, humans are using about half the available land.

En1320 Annotated Bibliography

...Summary of annotated bib EN1320 I am doing my research paper on sex offenders and what their lives are like after being incarcerated and then released into society again. I read a few articles that talk about sex offenders in a few different states. In the first article it speak about how Minnesota at one point had no laws as far as sex offenders having to register where they live at and work as a sex offender. There was a woman who had a son who was abducted at the age of 12 and he was never found she sought out justice for this. In her investigations she found that other states had laws for sex offenders where they would have to register in their county as an offender and they could not live within a certain amount of distance where there could possibly be kids around. The woman suggested that if this law were in place in her home town where her son was abducted from then the possibility of this every happening would be slim because at least the surrounding neighbors would be aware that there was someone living around them that was a possible danger to children. I agree that all states should have a law in place that states all offenders must be registered and the public should have access to view records. In my second article they speak about a little town in Florida there is a home that offenders go to after being incarcerated for so long. In this place they are waiting out the rest of their time. There are a lot of people who say that the home for these men......

Employers legally can and must monitor their employees' web use but can digitally record employees' every move on high tech security cameras and with their own security branches. Applications for employment now have a section on them asking for your Facebook login and password. Is this normal? Is it violating our rights as American citizens? Should people legally be fired for post on Facebook? Why must originations do this in this day and age? In an interview with Stacy Martin, an employee at the Devon Tower, Stacey was asked about how she felt about her privacy rights at work. "Does the application for employment at the Devon Tower ask for your Facebook login and password?" Stacey "Yes, and it requires ur personal e-mails login and passwords as well. After being on the schedule maybe a month, I hadn't put one of my personal emails down on my application and it only took a month for them to find it and ask me to update my personal information regularly." The next question Stacy was asked was,"Do you feel like you've given up your personal life on-line or in the cyber world outside of work?" Stacy's response, "In a way.

Something that would last about as much as the next generations fasion sense. Course I say its been said, as if there has been an actual book written. By they I mean my father. I cannot think of a time when videogames were not apart of my life. From my earliest memories I can tell you certain patterns from pong, pacman, etc. It has only been the natural progression of who I am that I would want my career to fall into something dealing with the gaming industry. As I said, once considered a fade, it is now a growing billion dollar industry. Hollywood Films, Symphony, Broadway Shows, have all had a tale from a game inspire their respective form of media. For me however it’s a specific part of the industry that I would love to be apart of. That’s the Story telling. I feel as if todays games are truly immortalized by the stories that they tell.

...Exploring and Researching Your Chosen Profession By Robert Maddox EN1320 In this new age of the second industrial revolution, a time where skills in technology are essential to succeed in a competitive work force, cybersecurity is at an utmost priority for many companies and individuals alike. It's here where I feel I can make a truly important impact upon society, all while working with a sense of purpose and success. One can't watch television without the constant reminder of identity theft or devastating hacks by secretive individuals hidden behind false IP addresses and the like. Whether it's a commercial for credit scores and security or shows like Mr. Robot, cybersecurity is on everyone's mind, subconsciously or otherwise. And these issues are only going to increase as technology advances and the internet becomes more readily accessible to terrorists. As a veteran, my duty to protect American citizens did not simply stop when my contract ended with Uncle Sam. Ideally, I would accomplish this through the Federal Bureau of Investigations. There are many criteria to complete in order to accomplish this, and I am in no way close to this, yet one must start somewhere and this degree will be my first step. I have always been interested in computer technology, even if it merely stemmed from my long term relationship with video games. Rebuilding computers and achieving better performance came second nature to me and computers just make......

That is how I felt before I decided to go back to school. I realized that without a college education that my life was going nowhere. I had no future. I had to break out of this pit that had become my life and chosen job. Without a college degree I was going nowhere had no future. Deciding to get a degree is all good and well, but what degree what path? How does one go about making a decision of this magnitude? It is an overwhelming task that can be frightening. It’s like looking up from the bottom of a hundred foot deep pit and trying to figure out how to get out of the pit and back into the sunlight, it’s scary. Well I know that I enjoyed working with and building computers, and I enjoyed the security field. I started searching to see if combining these 2 fields was feasible or possible. To my delight and pleasure there was a degree program that did cover both of these fields together it was called Cybersecurity. After reading up on Cybersecurity I felt it was a field that I would enjoy. But what exactly is Cybersecurity?

This speech took place in Philadelphia, PA at the National Constitution Center. This speech was given during the 2008 Presidential race and looks to address the concerns regarding video of controversial and racially charged comments made by former pastor Jeremiah Wright which seemed to playing on loop in every media outlet possible. He also addressed the subjects of racial tension and race and inequality in the United States. From the beginning of the speech, it is evident that the most effective appeal that Obama chooses to use is ethos. As a rhetoric tool, ethos is used to establish character. Ethos is an appeal to ethics, and it is a means of convincing someone of the character or credibility of the persuader (Examples of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos). In order to establish an effective ethos, the speaker must present themselves in a way that will make the audience believe what they say. A strong example of this is when he uses the quote “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union”. In referring to the U.S Constitution, this compels the audience to make a connection of significance and importance between his speech and that of the......

En1320 Lab3

...Alyssa Bauman En1320 Lab3 “Why We Crave Horror Movies” by Steven King presents an intriguing philosophy of watching horror movies. I believe that the purpose behind this article is to appeal to the reader’s unrealized dark side. King implies that are able to overcome their hysterical fear of things when they’re confronted with it and watching a horror movie is the easiest way to do that. He explains that in some way we all have this courage to overcome our deepest fears and one of the ways we show it is placing ourselves, in this case a movie theater, directly in front of what we know will scare us. The intended audience for this article is most likely the younger age demographic. Horror Movies are especially popular with ages 15-35. When you are younger you have this need to seek out new experience and thrills. Throughout the essay King directs a message to the young by making a comparison of horror movies to roller coasters describing the excitement that is felt throughout the ride. King is trying to persuade his reading audience to watch horror movies that bring his popularity up because he has books that have been made into movies. Although persuasive, King's article does not have factual evidence to solidify his argument that we all crave horror movies. The article uses many rhetorical strategies such as: compare and contrast, analysis and evaluation, cause and effect, absolutes, generalizations, and assumptions. King's ability to use these strategies......
