use logos, ethos, and pathos

use logos, ethos, and pathos
Prompt 1: Explore how Martin Luther King effectively uses logos, ethos, and
pathos to convince his audience of his message in ?Letter from Birmingham
Jail.? This essay will not require a thesis. Instead, the main assertion has
already been taken for granted: namely, that Martin Luther King expertly
employs logos, ethos, and pathos to persuade his audience to accept his
argument. Therefore, all that you now need to do is supply the evidence that
proves this assertion to be true. Be sure to cite Martin Luther King?s letter
when appropriate.
Prompt 2: Analyze the recent decision by the state legislatures in Maryland and
Delaware to abolish capital punishment. Taking arguments in Maryland and
Delaware, along with the case of the West Memphis Three, argue for the
abolition of capital punishment throughout the United States. However, if you?d
prefer to write an essay in support of the 31 states that continue the
institution of capital punishment then you may do so. However, your essay will
need to address the recent decisions made in Delaware and Maryland as well as
the arguments made in the film Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory.
Prompt 3: Returning to the quote ?It?s not so much the things you don?t know
that get you into the trouble, it?s the things you know for certain that just
ain?t so,? deconstruct the events portrayed in the film Paradise Lost 3 while
identifying logical fallacies and emotional appeals.

In public speaking, it is important to not only understand how to go about creating an effective message as a speaker but also how to analyze the effectiveness of others’ messages as a critical listener. Hopefully by this point in the semester, you’ve obtained a strong understanding of both aspects.
For your final assessment, you may opt to complete a rhetorical critique of one of the following historically momentous speeches, using the Neo-Aristotelian Method discussed in class:
• A. Eleanor Roosevelt—Adopting the Declaration of Human Rights (1948)
• John F. Kennedy—Inaugural Address (1961)
• General Douglas MacArthur—Duty, Honor, Country: Sylvanus Thayer Award Acceptance Address (1962)
• Martin Luther King, Jr.—I’ve Been to the Mountaintop (1968)

• Nelson Mandela—Speech to the UN Special Committee Against Apartheid (1990)
• Anita Hill—Opening Statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee (1991)
• Mary Fisher—A Whisper of AIDS: Republican National Convention Address (1992)
Text and audio files of these speeches can be found at You need to listen to the audio (or view the video, if one is available) in addition to reviewing the manuscript.
Because you are focusing on a historical speech, you will need to conduct research about the context in which it occurred and what happened as a result of the speech. Use at least 8 sources (not including the speech audio, video, or text file). A dictionary or Wikipedia entry will not be accepted as sources, and at least two of these sources must be scholarly. Cite all sources in text (in APA style) and include a Works Cited section at the end of your paper.
Failure to include both in-text references to which details are from which source and/or a Works Cited will result in an automatic 0 on this assignment.
Your typed, double-spaced paper should be 6 to 8 pages in length, not including your Works Cited page.
Write your critique as a formal essay with an introduction, body, and conclusion, following the layout below (see lecture notes on “Rhetorical Criticism” for more information:

What is Strategic Intelligence

What is Strategic Intelligence
Please complete listed readings and address the following question:
Make sure there is no plagiarism, will be checked
This is not an essay this should be written as discussion
Why does this course’s focus on Strategic Intelligence include the basic definitions provided in the Heidenrich article (which primarily deals with estimative (predictive analysis) to support strategy (at the national or military level), but then goes beyond to include strategic collections, strategic counterintelligence, strategic covert action, and Congressional oversight?
Is the content in Heidenrich’s writings too constrained? Why do we need to think about intelligence as it relates to the development of strategy as something more than just analysis? Or do we?

Investimnt Project

Investimnt Project
This is a report on a project that we did in our Finance class. The report has to analyse my performance on this project (GAME) . The project was to play in an investment game. The game allows us to invest 100,000.00 dollars on min of 5 different stocks. Now we need to write a report about the investments that we did. In order to write the report the writer has to sign in to the website to view the performance. The website address and the instruction of the game is attached as a tool to look around the website to figure out the game .The website is in order to log in please use the following information The USERNAME is : SFAHIMI0 and Password is : Parisa22
This is an individual project. You can take help from your classmates to learn about the
trading process and familiarize yourself with the game website, but you need to pick
your own stocks based on your own analysis. At the end of the semester, you will need
to submit a brief 5-page report as described later in this document.
Go to
You will have $100,000 to invest. You need to pick at least 5 individual stocks (you can
pick more if you like) for investment during the game period. You do not have to buy
them all at once, but you can make investments at different points in time. Note that you do not have to invest the entire $100,000 amount in these stocks; you can keep some
money in cash or otherinvestments (such as exchange traded funds) if you like.
(8) You can buy and sell as many times as you like, but just remember that each time you
make a trade, you will pay $10 as trading commission.
(9) As we proceed through the course, you will learn new things about investing. Check
your portfolio throughout the semester to see how can apply newly acquired knowledge
to improve the performance of your portfolio.
(10) On December 10, you will submit a brief report of about 5 pages. The report will
describe what stocks you traded in during the game period (name of the company and
ticker symbol), the criteria you used to buy or sell particular stocks (in particular, you
need to highlight what you learned during the course to improve your trading
performance), a note on your overall performance, and if you would do anything
different in future trading to further improve your performance.
(11) Your project grade will be based primarily on how thorough you were in your analysis
of the stocks you chose and the portfolio you formed, and not on the performance of your
portfolio. Remember that I am more interested in whether you applied the concepts you
learned during the course and not so much in how well your portfolio did.
(12) You will gain the most out of this project if you think as if you have invested your own
$100,000 for this project. Think about how careful you would be if it was your own
money and use that same caution and prudent judgments in making your trading
decisions. All of us make mistakes, but it is better to make mistakes with fake money
rather than real money, and this project provides you an opportunity to learn from your
mistakes for your future investments. Some Useful Websites
Yahoo Finance (news and detailed analysis of individual stocks)
Google Finance (news and detailed analysis of individual stocks)
Bloomberg (financial and market news) (financial and market news and commentary)
IndexFunds (best in-depth source on indexing) (company profiles and analysis) (stock research and discussion boards) (earnings estimates and analyst recommendations) (Chart School is informative)
Suggestions for Preparing Your Project Report
In addition to your analyses, the way you prepare and present the report is also important. I am
offering a few suggestions here for writing a concise report that covers all aspects. Please keep
in mind that these are just my “suggestions”; you are not required to stick to this format. If you
think you can present your work in a better way, feel free to use a different format.
The report should be “professional-looking”. Think about how you would present the report if
you are an analyst at a company and you are asked to write a report based on your analysis.
? Have a cover page with title, class, your name, and date
? Break the report into sections such as
? Introduction – Here you should briefly discuss what the purpose of the project is.
? Stock Selection and Portfolio – What stocks you selected and why; what are the
characteristics of your resulting portfolio (diversified, etc.). You will include any
analysis you did to pick your stocks in here. You should try to relate your analysis to
the concepts learned in class. You can include simple graphs within the report, but if
you have a lots of graphs, excel sheets, etc., consider using an Appendix.
? Performance – Discuss how your portfolio performed. You can include risk measures
such as beta of stocks, talk about risk-adjusted performance and performance relative
to the market portfolio, etc. Try to summarize results in tables, if possible.
? Conclusion – You will provide a brief conclusion. The most important thing in this
section is to talk about what you learned from the project and what you would do
differently if were to do this again (may be in real life with actual money).
? References – Include any references to books, news articles, websites, etc. after the

George Washington

George Washington
Review and compare three (3) different biographies of George Washington. The three (3) biographies have to be written in different eras. For example….. the first biography on George Washington written in 1900, the second biography on George Washington written in the 1950′s, and the third biography on George Washington written in the 2000′s.
Double-spaced, 12-point, in a clear font (e.g. Times New Roman).
A bibliography/references page is to be included which WILL NOT COUNT as one of the 12 pages. DO NOT include a title page. Any title page WILL NOT COUNT as one of the 11 pages.
Need the three books on George Washington as sources as a minimum…… you can also use additional resources/references to support your reviews of the three books.
NO UNRELIABLE INTERNET SOURCES….(no Wikipedia….no “Yahoo Answers”).
