    Writing a persuasive essay can be done in various ways. In Libby Hill’s essay “Calvin and Hobbes: The Voice of the Lonely Child”, she uses methods such as emotional appeal and testimony to connect to her readers. In Melissa Rubin’s essay, “Advertisements R Us”, she uses a very different approach as to how she persuades her reader. Rubin concentrates on logical appeal and historical facts to prove her claims. Both of these essays present reasonable arguments in different techniques as to what their claims are, how they display their evidence, and how they present the evidence to their readers, but Rubin’s essay is more persuasive because she presents a logical approach to argue her evidence. In the essay, “Advertisements R Us”, Rubin goes on…

    Bill Watterson-Calvin and Hobbes, Sabbatical, and Commercialization When starting off writing Calvin and Hobbes, Bill was advised not to quit his day job as a large number of comic strips never make it past a few years. The income for a beginner cartoonist wasn’t high paying but neither was his day job so as soon as he was making equal amounts from both jobs he went against the advice of the editor of the syndicate and quit his day job. The editors turned down many of his rough ideas but he…

    knowing via emotion is virtually diminished in value. French artist Paul Cézanne once said “a work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art” (Paul Cezanne n.p.). In the cases of political cartoonists who are hired and paid to create their art, emotional investment might not be felt to make it seem realistic. However, political cartoonists do directly apply their knowledge in the world and according to this claim, a political cartoonist who does not enjoy making their art has more…

    repeal of Prohibition, many small beer manufacturers that had existed before did not return to the market. Although in retrospective review of the 1920s it is often considered the last period in US history, when the capitalist system remained dependent on the unregulated domination of robber barons, the role of the federal government continued to grow.

    I like the quote "Expect to be called a stand patter, but don’t be a stand patter. Expect to be called a demagogue, but don’t be a demagogue," in the speech given by Calvin Coolidge at Massachusetts. It might have a different meaning but to me, it means not to be what people call us. This is a common problem in the world today. We live by what people call us; our every steps and breaths are determined by people. A few weeks ago in my Chem class, a friend of mine asked me a question. She said,…

    Introduction Historical Situation Christianity in the early 16th and 17th centuries went through a very rough and turbulent ride. Some may even argue that we are still feeling the effects of this time today. This was a time of great progress and change in the Catholic Church and much of Europe.

    The verse that I chose for my history of interpretation is Romans 9:6-16. This verse is significant in soteriology because it signifies that God is the only one that has the right to decide whom will be saved and whom will be damned. In other words, God saves individuals he thinks to deserve a place in his kingdom and perish people who do not deserve a place in heaven. This passage is also important because it teaches Christians about divine election, how individuals are predestined to salvation…
