Intro Sample...


In the speech about chili peppers, the speaker used the organizational pattern of topical for his informative speech. For his particular speech, topical was effective because he was giving an overall informative speech about chili peppers. Chronological wouldn’t have worked because he didn’t only want to talk about their history. He didn’t want to talk about pros and con’s either, and compare and contrast wouldn’t work as well because he didn’t only want to talk about each individual pepper. His main points in this speech were the chili pepper’s history, an explanation to why they are spicy, what you should do when you eat a pepper that is too hot, and ways to use these chili peppers other than in food, in that order. With these main points, his organizational pattern of topical is effective.
The speaker used a power point as his visual aid as well as physical examples of peppers (the habanera and green bell peppers). The way he used this power point is by showing the audience new, complicated, or different words, as well as maps when talking about history, and pictures of certain peppers and their insides when talking about why they are spicy. He also used his physical visual aids to keep the attention of the audience and to prove the point of what he is talking about (such as not touching the habanera pepper). He didn’t rely or use the visual aid too much, which was effective because then the audience would have to pay attention to his instead of always expecting something to pop up on the screen.
As for the speaker’s delivery, he started off strong and hardly ever looked down at his note cards and maintained eye contact with the audience. He was consistently fluid when delivering his speech and took effective pauses throughout the speech. Each pause was never too short, nor too long. He also used his hands and body language effectively by pointing or holding the peppers to draw the audience’s attention to where he wants it to be. But towards the end of his spee View More »

    Participating in various sports has acutely shaped my seventeen years of life for the better both physically and mentally. I have tried so many different sports, especially as a child, to help me find the real me. My mother put me in swimming, tap dance, ballet, cheerleading, karate, and tumbling, and I also tried volleyball and basketball through my own ambitions. But the sport that helped me find my full potential in being able to accomplish whatever I set my mind to was gymnastics.

    UGBA10 The FTC’s action against Reebok, although seemingly extreme was justified, because Reebok’s claim that their “toning shoes could strengthen leg and buttock muscles” was not supported by sound science. Reebok was essentially tricking people into buying their shoes to generate revenue for their company; instead of providing a superior product justified by science, they were just using clever, sneaking marketing to make money. Still, Reebok’s response of paying $25 million in customer refunds to settle charges was a smart move. It was a smart move because Re

    Dow Jones Index (Dji) Not A Good Measure Of The Us Economy

    758 words, 4 pages

    UGBA10 The Dow Jones Index (DJI) is a powerful tool that serves as an indicator of the state of the US Economy. This correlation can be made if the performance of the DJI is compared to that of the US GDP. This is supported by the fact that the growth rates between 2010 and 2011 for both measures were very similar. The growth of the US GDP was 3.3% while the growth of the Dow Jones was 5.5% (1,2). Although the Dow Jones serves as an effective measure of the US Economy with its direct correlation to GDP fluctuation, it does not incorporate a good selection of repre

    On my sixteenth birthday a few years ago, my parents decided to take me out to eat at a family restaurant for a present. I have been to this place before so I had an idea about what to expect. We decided to go for dinner so the place was slow and quiet. I cannot remember what I ordered exactly but I do recall the onion rings, particularly because they were unpleasant. They were undercooked, cold, soggy and just plain disgusting. The rest of the food was fine it was the onion rings that made me gag. I wanted to bring it up to the server but my mother said no, so I did not. Since it was my birth

    The Motel Was Old

    Upon entry of the motel, I instantly regretted my decision of trying to pay less. I flip the switch to light up the dark room, but I switched on this dim, rusty lamp that I could have sworn was from the seventies. I walk into the room to do an inspection, and boy were the comments on the motel’s website accurate. I instantly notice the cigarette-smelling, gray walls, and I was glad I didn’t take off my shoes as I walked in because under my brand new Nike shoes was a very sticky, muddy carpet that I feel was not cleaned in a decade. I turn on the fan because of heat-wave outside, but its fastes

    The right of free speech and the boundaries that separate it from hate speech has been an issue ever since the first social media network became public.

The topic is far from black and white due to the possibility of horrible things being posted such as, expl
