    It is where D-Day partially took place. According to worldwar2history.info, “There were six 155mm cannon in heavily reinforced concrete bunkers that were capable of hitting either beach with their big shells.” We explored the ground and heard from Jeff Struecker, who served in the army as a chaplain and a captain for operations like Black Hawk Down. I remember seeing craters the size of a house. These humungous and steep holes in the ground showed the damage that was caused during the war. After visiting Pointe Du Hoc, we went back to Mercure Hotel. We had baked chicken, fresh tilapia, and steamed rice once we got to the hotel. Altogether I enjoyed the food. I sat with my friends, joking and talking like we always do. I remember that night well, being that it was our last night in France. I was wearing an outfit consisting of white Vans, tan shorts, t-shirt and a pair of sunglasses. We ate our food and talked for about an hour or so. Then, we walked over to an empty conference room with the rest of our bus…

    Later on in life, a man with the same name as her brother went up to her and told her that he was a zombie who had to work for his master and once he had died all of them were free. They confirmed that he was actually her brother and the story was almost too crazy to believe (Kaplan 168). Kaplan then goes to discuss the smell of garlic and how that smell really affects vampires as well as other horrible monsters but mostly vampires. “Some studies have shown that garlic fights infection, reduces…

    for their actions" is glaringly irrelevant because it does not answers any question relating the conclusion. Also other sentence in the second paragraph of the passage saying "often the only penalty for gross, even criminal misconduct is undergoing counselling in a treatment centre" is glaringly irrelevant as it does not answers any question relating the conclusion. It does not answers why a disease model of addiction is harmful for society. Now I have finished with the glaring irrelevancies.…

    One of the logical fallacies that I found is Post hoc ergo propter hoc, which means the author assumes that one event causes the other. For example “Times of carnival temporally marginalize the monstrous, but at the same time allow it a safe realm of expression and play: on Halloween everyone is a demon for a night” (Cohen, 191). The author is assuming that in Halloween most people dress up as the monster they desire to be, which led all the expression to come up and also the real actions that a…

    The first statement she makes is "[t]his research proves those who are against the single-sex education system due to inequality, sexism, and stereotypes are completely wrong" (Pampillonia, 29). A little later one she uses Hillary Clinton and Dianne Feinstein to state that "[b]oth are highly respected women who have the strength, motivation, and confidence to take on stereotypical male political positions... this further proves the single-sex system's ability to raise confidence, thus breaking…

    Imagery in Mussolini 's speech exhibits Italian might: "It is forty-four million Italians marching in unity behind this army" (Mussolini, 1935, p. 79). A strong military oftentimes follows nationalism because of its ability to dominate others. Furthermore, Hitler (1941) states, "Nothing is impossible for the German soldier" (p. 132), which depicts a perception of invincibility, and an idea that if one supports Germany, then they, too, can achieve anything. Additionally, post hoc ergo propter hoc…

    Logical fallacies are basically common errors. Everyone single person every day makes a common error. The logical fallacies that I will be discussing are the sunk cost fallacy, slippery slope fallacy, hasty generalization fallacy, post hoc ergo propter hoc, ad hominem, red herring, and the straw man fallacy. It happens to everyone of us, even though we may not even realize it sometimes. Sunk cost fallacy is getting into something and not wanting to get out of it because you may have put a lot…

    Within my project I used illustrations of different fallacies that are commonly used to argue, persuade, and advertise to people. The three fallacies that I used were ad populum, ad verecundiam, and false cause (post hoc ergo propter hoc). While they were subtly used, they are able to illustrate what those specific fallacies are and why they are used in everyday advertising or arguments. The first fallacy I used in my advertisement for First Glitter was ad populum. This is simply stated as a…

    The Founding of A City Undeniably rooted in each human soul is the deep seated desire to leave the indelible mark of one 's self behind. But an entire city? Now that really is exceptional! When Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable set out on his journey, I 'm sure he had no idea that would be, ultimately, where his travels would end. Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable was born, at best estimates, sometime between 1745 and 1750 in the small port town of the then French colony of Saint -…
