Consider your response to the following three points of discussion:
1. Sir Francis Bacon states “The duty and office of rhetoric is to apply reason to imagination for the better moving of the will”. Has Orwell been able to move your will to improve your writing? If yes, explain how and why. If you answer no, explain what type of appeal would have been more effective and why.
Orwell has been able to move me in his speech. Although very long and confusing at times, he has persuaded me to change my writing with his words. Orwell has used evidence, rhetorical devices, logos, pathos and ethos in his speech. He shows that, yes the English language is declining fast in equality. He has many reasoning and examples of how the language is declining and his speech is very convincing.
I have learnt many things for example; Never use a metaphor, simile or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print. Never use a long word where a short one will do and never use passive when you can use active.
2. To what extent has Orwell used ethos, pathos and logos effectively in his argument? Explain using evidence from the essay to support your claims.
Orwell Used logos the most throughout the entire essay. A perfect example of a logo is "there is no real need for any of the hundreds of foreign phrases now current in the English language." (3) because he backs up his reasoning and has many strong points. Orwell uses pathos to show off his emotional side and tries to get the readers to feel the same way he does, it's almost like he is trying to make the reader think the exact same way as him; "[All bad writing] has faults of its own, but quite apart from avoidable ugliness, two qualities are common to all of them."(1) He also uses ethos to show that he has many connections and that he has been to many political events. He knows the specific days and is very well educated…...

Bacons Rebellion

...but Sir William Berkeley and Nathanial Bacon would take this plight to another level. Sir William Berkeley was the first Governor of the new colony and the Kings favorite. He prided himself in being fair and wanted to maintain peace with the Native Americans. Nathanial Bacon, on the other hand, was a spoiled rich kid who was sent to Jamestown by his father to grow up. He became Berkeley's antagonist. As the conditions in the colonies worsened, they settlers needed to blame someone and so the Indians became the prime target. As Berkeley worked diligently to maintain peace and work on compromises with the natives as he set land aside for them. Bacon refused to listen, was outraged as he felt Berkeley's policies were unfair to the settlers, and favored the natives. As a result, the people became divided and started choosing sides. When the Susquehannock tribe attacked a plantation owner for cheating them out of a fair trade, Bacon had his motive to strike. He gathered supporters who were already disillusioned with the situation of the colony, and declared war on the Indians against Berkeley's decision. Bacon's group attacked the tribe taking the land they natives called home. Berkeley denounced the attacked and promised a full investigation, but no one was listening at this time. The Susquehannock were grievously outraged and sought allies as they planned and fulfilled their next attack on the colonists. Thirty-six Virginians were killed and Bacon......

Saint Francis

...St. Francis of Assisi Saint Francis of Assisi was born at Assisi in Umbria, in 1181. He was the founder of the Franciscan Order. His father, Pietro Bernardone, was a wetly Assisan cloth merchant. His mother, Pica, is said to have belonged to a noble family of Provence. Francis was one of several children. According to a legend, he was born in a stable that dates from the fifteenth century only, and appears to have originated in the desire of certain writers to make his life resemble that of Christ. At baptism the saint received the name of Giovanni, which his dad changed to Francesco. The child was still able to learn French even though he was renamed. Francis received elementary teachings from the priests of St. George's at Assisi, even though he learned more in the school of the Troubadours. He was not very studious, and his literary education remained incomplete. Francis showed little liking for a merchant's career, and his parents seemed to have indulged him. Thomas was Francis's first biographer, who speaks very fond of him. No one loved pleasure more than Francis. Francis had a ready wit, sang merrily, enjoyed in fine clothes and showy display. He showed sympathy with the poor, and though he spent money lavishly. In 1201 he took part in an attack on Perugia, was taken hostage, and remained a captive there for a year. His mind began to turn to religion, but around 1205 he enlisted in another military expedition, to Apulia.  However, he had a dream in which God......

St Francis

...Works Cited Galli, Mark. Francis of Assisi and His World. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity, 2002. Print. Saint of the Animals If you have not read the story of Francis of Assisi you should take the time out of our day to see the dedication this man put into his short lifetime. From growing up in a middle class family to dying in poverty the story of Francis takes you on multiple adventures through his life and beyond. Learning the struggles that Francis faced and his inspirational commitment to God this saint is worth learning about. I will highlight why I choose Saint Francis, some of the struggles he faced, and if his challenges are still present in today’s world. I choose Saint Francis because his life was inspiring yet not at all what I would think of for a saint. As a child Francis was given the minimal education that was available. Francis was always read to and wrote very little. “As an adult, he was considered ‘a man without learning’” (Pg 17). Francis also grew up with little supervision so he lived a carefree life. One of the first major struggles in Francis’ life was when he was thrown into a dungeon and ransomed out to his father. Francis became ill and “spent many weeks in bed” (pg.24). Francis was quite friendly to the other prisoners while being held in the dungeon. When Francis was 25 he had a dream in which God spoke to him about a mission he needed to take. After this dream Francis obeyed God and “told his companions he was abandoning the......

Pope Francis

...The current Pope, Pope Francis, is known to quite the opposite of the recent Pope Benedict. Since he started in the religious office his statements have been viewed as controversial. He seems to be more outspoken and down to earth than other Popes. His statements have been sought to be either wrong or acknowledge. For example his remarks toward gay marriage, how God is not "Catholic", and criticism on the Catholic Church, ect have angered conservative catholics, but many, as well as myself, feel his statements aren't wrong because he has a more open mind and thinks of everything equally instead of conservative. The pope has answered the question of gay marriage as a topic we should stop focusing so hard on when there are other things we need to focus on. He also stated that if God were to approach one who is gay he would show love instead of resentment. Also, when she stated that God is not Catholic, he explained how God is his father and Jesus is his pastor, making it obvious that the pope isn't a conservative catholic. This is what makes him different. His views are more about the truth and understanding of the Catholic faith instead of the church rules. It almost reminds me of Martin Luther. Luther criticized and spoke out on certain topics and stated the wrong, like Pope Francis. Francis noticed how certain priest and nuns are driving expensive cars and living in wealthy houses and spoke out about it because these religious people should be more humble. Although, many...

Sir Francis Bacon

...As we all know, Francis Bacon, an important figure of the English Renaissance, is a well-known as a writer, and philosopher. Of Marriage and Single Life analyzes and compares marriage with single life in different aspects, such as characters, public service and personal qualities. The essay depicts the benefits and the drawbacks of life as a single male and a married male possibly with children. Bacon explains that marriage is good for the individual but also for society. He also states that wife and children are a liability and only take back from obtaining wealth. A single man believes that a man with wife and children, who are obstacles to both great courses and little trivial, is the slave of fortune. Bacon presents the merits and demerits of married life and single life in his essay, “Of Marriage and Single Life” According to the essay children are the bills of charges and will reduce their riches. And beyond that being single means that you are free, but having a wife and children are reasons you a man is shackled. However, a single life has some good aspects. “Unmarried men are best friends, best masters, and best servants. In this portion of the essay, Bacon boasts about the fact that a free man gives back to society in a sense. He states that when you don’t have children and a wife to look after you have more time to give back to your community. This is simple logic that expresses what kind of write Bacon was. He states that without the distraction of both wife...

They will contribute a minimum to society and will leave no footprints behind. Sir Francis Drake, Vice Admiral was not one of these people, not only did he impact the world around him, he conquered it as well. The life he led will go down in history, and his name will be remembered until the end of time for being the astonishing individual that he turned himself into. With consideration of all the incredible people whom he encountered during his five and fifty years, it is in great honor that I may speak during the hour of his death. Employed under our majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, Drake conquered the seas with an iron fist. He was an extremely loyal subject to our Queen and would have done anything to protect her. Whether this be defeating the Spanish Armada, giving the Queen and England itself a stunning victory. Onto a more personal level, in which I witnessed; when one of her subjects pulled a sword on her, he was right by her side, baring his own dagger, protecting our majesty from the potential threat. He was an outstanding navigator and sea captain, who accomplished circumnavigating the entire globe. Drake was a brave leader to many and used these skills to help bring down the mighty Spanish Armada. He saved countless of his soldiers’ lives on many occasions and was truly an honor to serve under, for his guidance was...

(ENotes.com, 3rd March 2015) There were always been a contradictions among conventional and innovational methods in Bacon’s write ups. Even in his ‘New Atlantis’, the puzzle depicts itself when he creates an empirical process of experimental scientific method and inquired lacking of certain assumption that would be believed prehistoric in the recent times. He considered that the human opinions can be restructured by applying a new system of learning that combines hypothesizes as well as empiricism. According to him, this will allow an individual to examine the ‘the information of causes, and secrecy of the things in motion’, and also the ascendance in the boundaries of human empire, which is effectual to all the probable things. Many scientific researchers of that time embraced Bacon’s philosophical concentration is not compatible with the scientific theories of that time.

...Pig production The primary purpose of pig farming is the production of meat, including pork and bacon. If the bacon industry is to thrive, factories must receive pigs of the right type. In order to improve the level of pig production, the use of fine types and feed, the implementation of strict epidemic prevention system and using high quality facilities for the effective control of the environment are necessary. The questions of how to improve the technological content of feed pig at each steps and conversion of fodder mainly consist in raising high quality pigs. In pig production 2 phases of production are recognized: (1) sow farms (breeding and rearing); and (2) fattening farms (growing and finishing).The steps in these two farms include mating, pregnancy, childbirth, lactating piglets, and fattening.

Panizzi felt that a large catalog needed a consistent manner in which to serve the reader. “The larger the library is, the more you must distinguish the books from each other, and consequently the more fully and more accurately you must catalogue them…When I come to a great and national library, where I have those editions or works of “Abelard,” I have a right to find those editions and works so well distinguished from each other that I may get exactly the particular one which I want.” – Sir Anthony Panizzi.

Bacons Rebelllions

...Bacon's Rebellion "…where we do well know that all our causes will be impartially heard and equally justice administered to all men," as stated by, Nathaniel Bacon. 1 In 1676 an uprising known as Bacon's Rebellion occurred in Virginia. The immediate cause of this revolt was the dissension between the planters and the Indians. Because Sir William Berkeley, the Governor of Virginia had willingly denied support to the farmers, Bacon assumed leadership of an unauthorized expedition against the Indians. When Bacon learned that Governor Berkeley was rising a force against him, he turned away from the Indians to fight with Berkley. This had now become a serious problem for the governor. When news of this revolt had reached King Charles II, it alarmed him so that he dispatched eleven hundred troops to Virginia, recalled his governor, and appointed a commission to determine the causes of the dissatisfaction. Bacon's Rebellion is considered to be the most important event in the establishment of democracy in colonial America because the right to vote and social equality were denied to the farmers by the local government. The right to vote is a small but crucial part of the democracy. During the first half of the 17th century the farmers on the plantations in Virginia were not able to exercise their right to vote. The only people that were able to vote during this time were the wealthy men who owned land. Overall the colonists had not been treated fairly. They had been over taxed......

Francis

...Francis Daniel Rivera BSBA MKTG III MARK 34 6:00-7:30 Advertisement Critical Analysis At it's most basic level, an advertisement is a form of marketing communication used to sell or promote a product or service. However, there is a lot of thought put into these seemingly simple posters, commercials and radio jingles. These things are the final product of accumulated analysis and surveys, and cater to peoples tastes, their culture, the trends, the available technology and countless other factors. One aspect I’ve always found interesting about advertisements, is they are perfect snapshots of the times they were made in. Sentiments we consider to be shocking and wrong were once considered unquestioned social norms. They not only show the beliefs and cultural norms of their times, but give us a glimpse into their ideals. They show us what it was people strived to have or be. One such advertisement (seen below) is the famous Van Heusen ties' “Man's World” ad. Like many ads of the period, this ad catered to, and promoted the ideal“ Nuclear Family” where the husband earns the money and the wife serves by taking care of the household and raising the children. It makes sense for the times then, that advertisements would focus more on the head of the family, as they generated the income and generally had the last say in financial matters. We then have the hyper-emasculating world of the Golden age of Advertising. These ads, in order to influence the breadwinners to buy......
