Running to be the president of the United States is no easy task. There are many steps that must be taken but first the candidates must meet the requirements that are stated in the U.S. Constitution which are: to be at least thirty-five years old, a natural born citizen of the United States, and a resident of the United States for 14 years. Once they meet those requirement then people have to go through the caucuses and primaries. Then they have the national convention. After is the general election where the candidates campaign throughout the country in an attempt to win the support of the general population. Finally the electoral college is where the president gets chosen from the candidates. Marco Rubio is one of those candidates that is running for president once Barack Obama time in the office is up. Right now Rubio is trying to win over the voters by relating to his audience in his campaign speeches and making sure the people know that he is there for them and not himself. Marco Rubio effectively appeals to the working middle class audience through rhetoric, especially through the identity strategy. Rubio effectively uses pathos and ethos Marco Rubio campaign advertisement has highly appealed to a variety of people. His advertisements has affected the middle class, the working class, the parents, the younger generation, and more which can add up to more than the top one percent of people. He relates to the working class and the middle class because he was part of that group growing up with both his parents working low income jobs. He relates to families as well because he too has a family of his own that he wants to protect and to make sure they have a good life. Out of all the candidates Rubio is the youngest at forty-four years old which can help him relate to the younger audience. In the advertisements, Marco Rubio has related to his audience on…...

I'M Nobody Who Are You

...Jennifer Czachura 3/27/07 Critical Thinking Essay Kim Groninga “I’m Nobody! Who are you?” by Emily Dickinson Most people feel invisible at some point in their lives; whether it’s because they’re in the shadow of an older sibling, because they are shy, or simply because everyone around them has been busy, it doesn’t make much difference. It’s still a horrible thing to feel like no one even realizes you’re alive or that you’ve been doing things. Emily Dickinson felt this way often; she lived at home and didn’t leave the house much, mostly corresponding with people by letters. However, her invisibility didn’t bother her too much, and that is what this poem is all about. When you feel invisible, you aren’t alone, because someone else is feeling invisible too. Dickinson starts out the poem introducing herself, ”I’m Nobody! Who are you?” (1) Being nobody can mean a lot of things; it could mean she’s no one important, no one special, no one significant, or no one that everyone knows. However, she could also be nobody to many people simply because she doesn’t try to stand out or feel important. She is content just being herself, living her plain, simple life and doing things that make her happy. Being nobody makes her somewhat mysterious; she’s obviously a person, but most people don’t know who she really is. This also relates to the second line in the poem, “Are you – Nobody – too?” (2) Dickinson’s question of the reader seems to show tha t being nobody is something everyone feels......

Teach Me Like I'M Rich

...Teach Me like I’m Rich Are children really getting the same education as other students of different social classes? The curriculum is the same, but it’s not the same education, it is taught differently depending on the schools overall social class. The “hidden curriculum” depicted by Anyon’s title is students learning things they would need to know for the jobs along their economic class. The Curriculum of the social classes in the schools is less defined as it rises in the social food chain. The curriculum of liberal education that Delbanco wants back in colleges is similar to that of schools with that of the higher social classes Anyon describes. The only way liberal and economical agendas can co-exist is if all these social classes were viewed the same and treated equal; using a little bit of each social class to make an all-across fair education. Education shouldn’t be used to train children into jobs of their social class, but be taught to make something of themselves; they should be given the same education as any other schools economic. Education is and should be used as a tool to open the minds of the children so as they go through the different grades they can be open to the different opportunities they can have in their adult lives. The different social classes broken down by Anyon are: the working class schools, middle class school, affluent professional school, and the executive elite school. In the working class schools “the procedure is usually mechanical,......

...Just Like That & Indian Camp Comparative analyses, The two short stories are quite alike, in both stories there a little naive boy who we follow from their point of view, two macho men who seems to be thinking about themselves. And both have a life changing moment for a little innocent boy. Nick is the main character in Indian camp, he is also the only one we see from the inside and outside. His father calls him Nicky one time, on their way home from the Indian camp to hold what is left of his childhood. When they were sailing over the river to the Indian camp, ‘Nick lay back with his father’s arms around him’ so we can see that he had gone trough a little development in is growth from a young boy, to a man. In the other short story the growing up process had gone terribly wrong, a man with a relationship to the boy is unknown, was shot dead. They were out shooting kangaroos’, and the boy did not want to. So when the man said ‘‘if you can’t do it now you never will’’ he probably believed that he had no other choice than shoot a kangaroo to become a man. I believe the plots are different, in just like that, the climax is building up to one single sentence, ‘‘The crow barked’’ and then the climax was realised. When in Indian Camp the suicide was suddenly and therefore quite choking for me. The fact that the baby was not his could be a big shame to bear, so he took the coward solution of taking his own life. Life and death is also a theme in the short stories, so......

Just Like That

...Just Like That Summary A boy and a man (perhaps his father) have gone out into the outback to shoot kangaroos in order to turn the boy into a man (rite of passage). The man teaches the boy how to shoot and effectively kill the kangaroos. To begin with the boy is fascinated with how easy it is to take a life, but he is also nervous. Nevertheless, he quickly gets the hang of the murdering. He shoots numerous kangaroos, but does not feel more like a man. Instead he starts to feel numb and feels that he loses part of himself with each kill. Finally he shoots a very large kangaroo because he thinks that shooting such a big animal will definitely turn him into a man. After the kill, the boy begins to cry and regrets what he has done. The story ends with the boy pointing the gun at the back of the man’s head and perhaps pulling the trigger. Whether the boy shoots the man or not is up to the reader to interpret. Key Characters The boy (main character)  Rite of passage (The boy must kill a kangaroo to earn the man’s respect and become a man himself) Undergoes a transformation from innocent child to ‘adult’: Beginning:  Nervous about having to kill a kangaroo.  Fascinated with death.  Feels powerful with the rifle in his hands.  The rifle feels light.  Is surprised about how easy it is to kill. Point of no return  The kill makes him numb (without feeling).  He is disappointed. He thought it would have been harder to kill.  He thought that killing an animal would make......

As You Like It

...As You Like It presents an ideal world, just as The Merchant of Venice did. The Forest of Arden has as much romance, as many delightful lovers, more laughter and Joy. Lamb, Charles and Mary. Like A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Merchant of Venice, it is built by means of two worlds: the world ruled by Duke Frederick and the world of the Forest of Arden. Lamb, Charles and Mary. The effect is not the "separate but equal" envelope structure of A Midsummer Night Dream, nor the interlocking and necessary alternation of The Merchant of Venice; instead, Frederick's world first seems dominant and then dissolves and disappears into the world of Arden. Lamb, Charles and Mary. Its life seems to be in the play not so much for itself as to help us understand and read its successor. There is a set of contrasts between the two worlds of this play, but the contrasts are describable not in terms of opposition of power, as in A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Merchant of Venice, but in terms of attitudes of the dominant characters, as in Much Ado About Nothing, and in terms of differences in the settings and of changes in behavior for those characters who are part of both worlds. Lamb, Charles and Mary. These contrasts are easy to describe because Shakespeare points the way clearly, making each world an extreme. Our approach will be to examine the qualities of Frederick's world, then to examine the qualities of Arden, and finally out of this contrast to see how the characters behave......

Just You

...Just You I like reading The Economist and watching "I love the 80s." I like tennis, Fazoli's breadsticks and writing assignments. I value honesty, commitment, scholarship and kindness. These are hard and true facts, but there is a lot I do not know about myself. I don't know how I feel about the death penalty, I have mixed feelings about religion, and I don't know what I think about a cashless society. I have no stock answer to offer about a life-changing experience or a moment of enlightenment, and it is hard for me to give a comprehensive proclamation of who I am, for my identity unfolds more every day as my experiences grow. Since I am only 17 years old, life has a lot of unfolding to do. I dislike saying "I am trying to find myself" because my identity is not lost, it just needs more uncovering. Luckily for me, what I love to do and want to be helps me uncover more about myself. I want to be a writer. I may not end up a professional writer but I will always write, even if I am the only one interested in my work, because writing is my self-reflection. When writing, I sometimes get worked up into such a fervor that I barely know what I am saying. I just let my fingers fly over the keyboard and the ideas pour from my head. When I go back through the jumble of unpunctuated ideas, I notice a theme running through the writing. I don't try to put a moral in the theme, but invariably it happens. Evaluating the theme and the rest of the writing helps me interpret my own......

...sanctions ranging from probation to life imprisonment for drug offenses. The Single Convention's penal provisions frequently begin with clauses such as "Subject to its constitutional limitations, each Party shall . . ." Thus, if a nation's constitution prohibited instituting the criminal penalties called for by the Single Convention, those provisions would not be binding on that country. However, Professor Cindy Fazey's A Growing Market: The Domestic Cultivation of Cannabis points out, "Whilst this strategy may be practical politics for some countries, critics will ask why it has taken almost half a century to discover that the UN conventions conflict with a constitutional principle. The argument is particularly difficult to deploy for countries like Britain, where constitutional principles are not formalized or codified to any significant degree." However the current move in Switzerland to enshrine cannabis decriminalization in the national constitution by popular initiative could profit from this rule. Possession for personal use Different nations have drawn different conclusions as to whether the treaty requires criminalization of drug possession for personal use. It is unclear whether or not the treaty requires criminalization of drug possession for personal use. The treaty's language is ambiguous, and a ruling by the International Court of Justice would probably be required to settle the matter decisively.

As You Like It

...Interpretation ‘AS YOU LIKE IT’ (W.Shakespeare) Act II, Scene 7. William Shakespeare was an English poet, dramatist, considered by many to be the greatest dramatist of all time. ‘All the world’s a stage’ is the phrase that begins a monologue from W.Shakespeare’s ‘As you like it’, spoken by Jaques in Act II, Scene 7. This poem is a master-piece of Shakespeare’s keen observation and fine poetry. In this poem Shakespeare has masterfully described various stages of human life where people are actors playing their roles. At first man appears on this stage as an infant who is helpless and cannot walk, or speak, and is greatly limited in his ability to act with purpose. He must be carried if he goes from one place to another. It means that he is dependent on others. That it’s why he is crying in the nurse’s arms. Then he is seen as a school-boy with a shining morning face walking slowly and unwillingly to school. He doesn’t want to go to school because it makes him to feel unhappy, but on the other hand, it’s the happiest period of human life which is called childhood. You have very few responsibilities. For example, you don’t have to go to work, pay bills, or do the shopping, cooking, or cleaning. This means you have plenty of free time to do whatever you want. Soon a school-boy grows into a young man who is called in W.Shakespeare’s poem as a lover. Love inspires him, he becomes very romantic, but on the other hand, love obsesses him, because he writes a ballad......

...Just like that Growing up is not an easy process. At some point you will have to create an identity and find a place in society that fits you. Parents have expectations for their children; especially fathers who sometimes push their sons into becoming what they think are a real man. But some of them cannot handle the pressure their father puts on them. They are pushed over the edge by their parents, who don’t understand the children’s needs. This is reflected in the story “Just like that” by Michael Richards, in which a young boy is taken into the bush to shoot kangaroos, by a man who wants to teach him what it takes to grow up to become a man. Does the boy like to shoot kangaroos, if not; why? Why does the man say: “Don’t walk behind me”? What happens in the end of the story? The narrator is third person and is omniscient. The language is simple and informal because it includes dialogues and repetition of dialogues. The atmosphere is gloomy, because the man does not trust the boy. It is exciting. The story is told in chronological order. The boy is young and inexperienced. It is the first time, he is in the bush to shoot kangaroos. He is brought by a man, who seems to be his father. To him the son cannot become a man, until he knows how to handle a rifle. Shooting kangaroos is the method the father uses to turn the son into a man. The boy is looking for a role model, who he finds in his father. But to pass his father’s test of manhood, he needs to shoot......
