    Humanity, especially the people of the United States of the America, depend far too much on their secret enemy corn; on the other hand, we humans are our own enemy since we misuse corn by creating corn-based sweeteners and feeding our livestock corn. Corn itself did not desire to destroy our health and environment from the inside, for plants and most other living things exist to survive and to carry on their genes to the next generation, so their species may continue to thrive until the next day. Instead of blaming corn itself for the country’s troubles, such as the growing rate of obesity and other health problems, the country should turn to the food industries, consumers, and government for the true mastermind, for tools--such as corn--cannot operate themselves. Someone must handle them to produce an outcome. First, the food industries should accept their role in contributing to the country’s troubles, for they created, advertised, and pushed their corn-based products in the market. If they cared about the health of their customers and environment more than the profit, then they would produce higher quality products that did not misuse the properties of corn. Second, one should also condemn consumers for not taking care of their health better. There is no excuse: one knows that fast foods are unhealthy, and thus, unhealthy foods will affect one’s body negatively. Obesity and heart diseases are some instances of those negative consequences. Finally, the people should glare…

    thought Trayvon Martin was a threat. Trayvon Martin made no advancement to Zimmerman at all, yet he was followed and preyed upon. The criminal justice system continued to have Trayvon Martin posthumously on trial which still resulted in Zimmerman being acquitted. As far as police brutality, Alton Sterling was not a risk to law enforcements, the weapon he was supposed to have was not visible to the officers. The police rushed in, treated him like a down and out grimy creature. Cops bound him and…

    subject that I have never been too good at so, coming into college English I was very nervous. I have struggled in the past to perceive the correct tone and organization in my writing. That was my main focus from my first paper, the synthesis essay, to my last paper, the RBAA essay. My synthesis essay, “World Plagues,” analyzed essays about plagues during two very different time periods. “World Plagues” explained the different recourses that were available and how people handled the epidemics…

    My portfolio illustrates how I have gradually evolved from a high school level of writing skills to a beginner level of college writing. In the beginning when I started this writing class I was totally confused how to reach a college level of writing skills and practices. Then I slowly started to learn the correct way to setup an efficient personal writing method that I felt comfortable using but did not overwhelm myself with the amount of work at once. To forge this personal writing process, I…

    When it comes to writing an essay, I always hate and ignore because I didn’t know how to develop a paragraph. Moreover, I thought that reading and writing have completely a different task in writing an essay. However, after taking English 111, I come to know that reading and writing are equally important to form a beautiful essay. The fundamental knowledge I get in this class is that reading is important because it helps to create an argument and write an essay. Similarly, from English 111 class…

    Looking back on the semester and the essays I drafted, the one that stood out the most was the synthesis analysis essay. It was in this essay that I studied and analyzed John Keats, “When I Have Fears That I May Cease to be” and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s, “Mezzo Cammin”. My main purpose was to assess and reflect on common themes between the two poems, as well as finding background information that aided the authors. By taking this approach, I was able to discover direct links into the…

    If someone asked me how I would describe my myself as a writer, I’d be brutally honest at first and say I’m no good! However in all seriousness, I would define myself as an evolving writer. For instance, all of the pieces I’ve written in my English class have gradually improved because of how I approached each essay differently. In the beginning of the year, I found it challenging writing papers, since I didn’t know how to properly organize subjects or precisely express my thoughts, but after…

    1. How does your essay challenge something about the way most people think about this topic? My essay challenges how each political party feels in regard to the middle class. I presented viewpoints from various sources that were able to engage in a conversation. Many Americans believe very strongly in favor of one political party but in my essay I presented points that support and oppose each political party. This challenges the idea that a person can only support one political party when their…

    Dear, Kimmie During my revision process I realized how much I have grown as a writer, I went from someone who was just good enough to get an A in every other English class, to someone who had to try his butt off for the A. This in turn let me learn more in an English class than I ever had before and also let me grow into the prospering writer you see before you today. I learned many things this year that helped really push my writing to the next level that it needed to go, in order to be at…
