TO PERSUADE Tv Programs Should Be Rated

TO PERSUADE: Tv Programs Should Be Rated

General Goal: To Persuade

Specific Goal: I want the audience to believe that all television programs should be rated.

I. Introduction:
1. Children begin watching television at a vary early age, sometimes as early as six months, and are eager viewers by the time that they are two or three years old. The general viewing is one of a steady rise in the number of hours viewed from early childhood though preadolescence and then a sharp drop in viewing during the adolescent years. According to audience rating surveys , the typical American household has the television set on for more than seven hours each day and children age 2 to 11 spend an average of 28 hours per week viewing television (Liebert 1988).

2. I have grown up watching TV for as long as I can remember, like almost any one of us in this room. But TV then was different, now TV has a lot of crap. I know if I had kids, I would monitor what they were watching just to ensure they weren?t getting spoon fed all these awful programs that are on today.

3. I asked 5 parents of children ages 4 to 7 if

Socrates

Socrates

The results of recent scholarship on the subject of Socrates seem to make more and more imperative a fresh interpretation of his baffling and enigmatical figure. In recent years there has been a marked tendency to deal with all the great ancient thinkers in terms of a consistent pattern of development in their thought and to see them not, as it were, full grown and maturely developed but in the slow process of growth and evolution. The genetic method has been applied to Plato with marked success by generations of scholars and has culminated in the monumental work of Lutoslawski. Prof. Werner Jaegers book on Aristotle seems to me to establish quite clearly the validity of applying a similar method to Aristotle. It is not, therefore, surprising that a suggestion made as long ago as 1811 by Wolf in his edition of the Clouds should in recent years be revived and that there should be a fresh disposition to believe that the Socrates of the Clouds and the Socrates of the Apology represent quite different and in a sense even contradictory stages in his development as a thinker. As evidence for this tendency we need only cite the introduction to

Chemistry, Microscopy And Toxicology

Chemistry, Microscopy And Toxicology

Forensics is defined as the aplication of science to interpret clues for crime investigation. The earliest forensic scientists were physicianswho were called upon to give an opinion as to the cause of death in individuals. Now most of the forensic scientists are investigators that pick up clues at the crim scene. Because criminals often are not the brightest people on the planet they often do not plan out a burglary or theft and carelessly leave behind distict clues that allow an invetigator to track them relatively easily. There are many areas of forensics which include: general crime scene U investigation, forensic chemestry, forencic toxicology,forensic pathology, genetic figerprinting, fingerprinting and chromotography. The purpose of crime scene investigation is to help establish what happened (crime scene reconstruction) and to identify the responsible person. This is done by carefully documenting the conditions at a crime scene and recognizing all relevant physical evidence. The ability to recognize and collect the evidence is important in solving and prosecuting violent cases. In majority of the cases, The law enforcement officer who protects and searches the crime scene plays major part in determining whether the physical evidence will be used in solving or prosecuting the violent

Diabetes

Diabetes

With 17 million people or 6.2% of the United States diagnosed with diabetes, its hard for some one not to be effected by the disease in some way. With 7 members of my family including my grandfather and uncle having this disease it hits very close to home for me.
Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin and is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States.
There are 2 major Types of Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes also called juvenile onset is when the body does not produce any insulin. People with Type 1 diabetes need to take daily injections of insulin to survive. This most often occurs in children and young adults and accounts for 5-10% of all cases..
The second major type of Diabetes is called Type 2 diabetes or adult on set. This is a metabolic disorder resulting from the body?s inability to make enough or properly use insulin. Type 2 diabetes is the most common and accounts for 90-95% of all cases

Socrates

Socrates

Socrates was born in Athens on 470BC and died on 399BC. Socrates was the son of Sophroniscus. Socrates received the regular elementary education in literature, music, and gymnastics. Later he familiarized himself with the Sophists. Socrates followed the talent of his father he also believed in the power of argument over writing. For that reason he spent the greater part of his life in the marketplace and public places of Athens, engaging in discussion and argument with anyone who would listen or who would submit to questioning. Socrates was unattractive in appearance and short of height but was also very tough and self-controlled. He enjoyed life greatly and achieved social popularity because of his ready wit and a keen sense of humor.
Socrates was very obedient to the laws of Athens. He believed that he had received a call to practice philosophy and could serve his country best by devoting himself to teaching. He wrote no books and set up no regular school of philosophy. All that is known about his personality and his way of thinking is taken from the works of two of his well-known scholars: Plato, and the historian Xenophon. Plato portrayed Socrates as hiding behind a profession

Random Acts Of Kindness

Random Acts Of Kindness

Random Acts of Kindness

A well known Japanese proverb reads, ?One kind word can warm three winter months.? One word, one action, one simple display of affection can be more than you could ever imagine. From saying good morning to volunteering around the community, the number of ways to pass along kindness is endless. Many underestimate the little things in life ? which actually end of being extremely valuable. I would like to share with you all this evening some examples of random acts of kindness, how they affect others as well as yourself, and hopefully transform or reinforce your views on passing kindness along.
There are several different forms of random acts of kindness. Ranging from holding an open door for someone, to picking up litter, to working at a retirement home. I myself volunteer at the local Virginia Living Museum, and I love working with the animals and guest. A well known book, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II, comprised of heart-felt stories shares one on love and kindness. READ ?A SIMPLE HELLO,? PAGE 97.

Electrophoresis

Electrophoresis

Electrophoresis is the process by which charged particles suspended in a solution may be separated through the application of an electric current. Electrophoresis was developed by Arne Tiselius. The process is used in medicine and biochemistry (science concerned with the organic and physical chemistry) to separate, identify, and measure the amount of various proteins. Electrophoresis is an analytical method frequently used in molecular biology (study of life processes) and medicine. It is applied for the separation and characterization of proteins, nucleic acids, and sub cellular-sized particles like viruses (parasite with a noncellular structure composed of mainly nucleic acid within a protein coat) and small organelles. Nucleic acid is an organic substance that plays a role in the storage and replication of hereditary information. Electrophoresis? principle is that the charged particles of a sample migrate in an applied electrical field. In conducted in solution (homogeneous mixture of two or more substances), samples are separated according to their surface net charge density (ratio of mass of a substance to its volume). The most frequent applications, however, use gels (polyacryamide, agarose) as a support medium. Proteins electrophoresis is often performed in the presence of a

Socrates

Socrates

Socrates believes that the everyday world is an illusion compared to the world of knowledge. People are often too distracted by money and materialistic things to appreciate truth and reality. Socrates says the capacity for knowledge is innate in each man??¦s mind. This exemplifies the point that man has the ability to look into the world of truth, but when one is caught up in superficiality then truth does not receive the attention and glory that it should. This is why Socrates feels that the arts, such as poetry, should be censored; it would help decrease the digression of society??¦s intellect. In today??¦s world, television and movies are complications that only hinder the thought processes in society.
When people are consumed in the shallow world, they see reality as mere shadows compared to truth. Many times, violent images seen in movies will remain in a person??¦s mind. This obsession with violence and action takes away from concentration on the good, and does not benefit society. The bad does not change when one is exposed to it, instead the bad changes the person. So, by limiting this exposure to violence one can focus on finding the good.

Electrons

Electrons

The identity of the electron goes back to 1752 when Benjamin Franklin?s discovery set other scientists out trying to see if electrical energy could travel through gases other than the atmosphere. This was proven to be true and that electrical energy and particle movement also produced a ray? even when it was not moving through any gas. This surprised early investigators because they thought the ray was associated with the gas instead of an entity in and of itself! Tests also showed that the ray was blocked from reaching the Anode (+ charged end) when something was in its path. So they reasoned the ray originated from the Cathode (- charged end) and named it a cathode ray. The experiments where therefore done in a cathode ray tube.

Further experimentation proved that magnetic fields could deflect a cathode ray. The speed of of this ray was found to be much slower than the speed of light.

Fear

Fear

Audience: Anyone who has ever experienced fear and would like to overcome it.

Fear: the mere sight of the word makes some of us cringe. It is a feeling we have all dealt with at one time or another. It is something that we first experience as children, and are conditioned to respond to in many different ways. Some of us live in constant fear; of accidents, of bad people doing us harm, or of physical ailments. Others simply take things as they come in life, whether they are good or bad things. In the dictionary, fear is defined as: ?a feeling of agitation or anxiety caused by the presence or imminence of danger.? That is a rather ominous definition. Fear can also refer to general anxiety, as in ?fear of speaking in public? or ?fear of open areas?. These fears arise not necessarily from a present or imminent threat, but rather a perceived threat, which to some can be just as scary. For most people fear is an unpleasant feeling and it is important that we learn to deal with fear in the best manner possible.
