Toulmin Worksheet * Claim: A national Identity card could be an effective tool to promote safety and save us time and money. * Qualifier: * “From a civil liberties perspective, I prefer a system that takes a little bit of freedom from all to one that takes a great deal of freedom and dignity from the few -- especially since those few are usually from a racially or ethnically” disfavored group * At many bridges and tunnels across the country, drivers avoid long delays at the toll booths with an unobtrusive device that fits on a car's dashboard. * First, we already require photo ID's for many activities * But President Bush has proposed giving legal status to many of the illegal immigrants now in this country. * A national ID card would not prevent all threats of terrorism, but it would make it more difficult for potential terrorists to hide in open view, as many of the Sept. 11 hijackers apparently managed to do. * Exception: * Freedom and dignity has been taken away from The few disfavored group, not the majority of the disfavored group. * Few people do not have toll road passes * Not all activities require ID’s * Not all illegal immigrants are not given legal status * Not all 9/11 terrorists hid in open view.
Reason 1: It would reduce the likelihood that someone could, intentionally or not, get lost in the cracks of multiple bureaucracies. * What makes this reason relevant?
It’s relevant since many people try to forge or recreate a passport or fake ID to get into a different bureaucracy. It is a real life problem. * What makes this reason effective? It is effective since It is a real life situation that occurs often. * What evidence supports this reason? It provides vague evidence such as how a majority of Americans carry ID’s in wallets and pocketbooks, and how these ID’s are issued by state…...

...1. The six parts of the Toulmin model. 1) Claim, the main point or thesis for the argument. 2) Grounds: Evidence and reason for the argument. 3) Warrant: The motive and reasoning that associates the grounds with the claim. 4) Backing: gives support, evidence and data about the claim. 5) Rebuttal: Offers opposite opinions or opposing arguments to the claim. 6) Qualification: Clarifies the language of the argument and excludes words such as always and never. This gives the argument reasonable limits the audience can accept. 2. Synonyms for the claim include the proposition, the thesis, and conclusion. Synonyms for the warrant include assumption, cultural values and underlying logic. Synonyms for support include evidence, examples and explanations. More synonyms for these words are listed on page 121 of the book Perspectives on argument by Nancy V. Wood. 3. Subclaims are supporting arguments or specific issues that justify the main point of the argument. By themselves subclaims will not address the claim, they are merely supporting arguments. Specific support is more than just an argument, it is evidence that gives the claim and subclaim merit to the audience. 4. Warrants are views, values or beliefs held by a group or individual. When the arguer has similar warrants as the audience, the argument is accepted more often since they share these warrants. When the audience has opposing views or values, the arguer will have to provide more......

How Important Was the Fear of Communism in Explaining Why President Hindenburg Invited Hitler to Become Chancellor in 1933?

...How important was fear of communism in explaining why President Hindenburg invited Hitler to become Chancellor in 1933? Intro Communism was a political idea which was beginning to become popular in Germany. However it was very much disliked as communist were seen as unruly because of street battles with police. People feared the way the USSR discriminated against the middle class and in the process of becoming communist countries had taken land away from farmers and many peasants had been killed or imprisioned. Hitler was appointed chancellor on the 30th January 1933 and this was partly to do with the publics fear of communism however it was not the most important factor. One way the fear of communism explained why Hindenburg invited Hitler to become chancellor was pressure from big businesses. Originally Hindenburg had not wanted to appoint Hitler as chancellor, he feared he would dismantle democracy and as a former leader of the imperial german army Hindenburg strngly disliked the S.A. However he was getting older and struggling to keep the republic together. The army favored Hitler to protect the state from communism and the former president of the reichsbank, Hjalmar Schacht, made it known that the business and finical world saw Hitler as the ‘lesser of two evils’. This put huge pressure on Hindenburg to pick Hitler as chancellor because he needed the support of the army and business world. Along with the army and business world, support for Hitler in the public......

...FEAR. Opening the book ‘Raw’ penned down by Martin Crowe my eyes fixated on the following words, “Fear . That emotion I have fought all my life . Fear of rejection. Fear of unworthiness. Fear of failure. Fear of not moving forward. Fear of being dropped." Seeing and reading these words sent jitters down my spine and my head started reeling , re-calling my experiences as a budding youngster in the gentleman's game in all whites and a bright sun hat . I was like a new born calf trying to find his footing in this world ,I was somewhat good enough to get into the school first eleven at the age of thirteen and then into the state under nineteens the next year at the age of fourteen . This is exactly when the fear started creeping in ,playing with guys almost half a decade older than me was like a David versus Goliath battle from the inside but this time Goliath was winning . During training I was impressing all and then on the first match day just before the coin went up between the the two leaders a bombshell was dropped , a meeting was called and I was handed my first cap by the captain and a new set of whites as i was to take the field instead of a experienced stalwart in the team and thus was slotted to bat at number three . The toss was won by my captain and he decided to have a bat on a green seamer , on which the ball would move around in every direction . Watching the openers walk out to the middle was terrifying . I was sitting with my pads on , helmet and......

...Fear Written By: Richard A. Cranston To begin with, I will ask the question of what is fear. Webster’s Dictionary give’s the definition of fear as this: FEAR - 1) To have a reverential awe of, to be afraid of, expect with alarm, to be apprehensive. 2) An un-pleasant, often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger. 3) A reason for dread o apprehension. Fear is a powerful emotion that is primitive and can be traced back to our earliest ancestors. This emotion, if controlled and listened to, can and will alert us of danger. I personally believe that since it kept our ancestors alive, it can keep us alive. If fear was not accepted, appreciated, and or respected, then none of us will be here today. That is just a small portion of the positive side of fear. Like all things in life, when there is positive, there is negative. The negative side is that fear can control us, cloud our judgment, cause us to freeze, and in the end get us severely injured or killed. Hundreds of years ago, fear was taken from just an emotion, and turned into a very powerful weapon. This weapon was used, even to this day, as a means of control. Many cultures have produced secret societies who have found out just how much of an effective weapon this emotion can be. It has been used for extortion, control, and even to shift political parties to who these societies want to take reign, or over throw a monarchy. Many of these secret societies are not widely......

Why English Is Namibia's National Language

...Was English the right choice for Namibia as a national language? Am sure some of you might have heard the phrase “English came with a boat”, this is cause back then our ancestors just knew their mother tongues before German colonialism and apartheid when German’s and colonies from South Africa taught our people their languages(Afrikaans, German and English) in order to communicate with them. During apartheid Afrikaans, German and English held the position of official language; however, after independence from South Africa1990, Namibia's new government made English the sole official language in the constitution of Namibia. German and Afrikaans were stigmatized as having colonial overtones. "If communication is the life blood of human relationships and knowledge in every field of human thinking, reasoning and interaction, then language is its most important vehicle” Namibia as a developing country needs to reach out to different countries in the world for varies reasons to improve its development rate. So for this our country needs to learn and know how communicate with most of the other countries in the world. English may not be the most spoken language in the world, but it is the official language in a large number of countries. It is estimated that the number of people in the world that use in English to communicate on a regular basis is 2 billion. Therefore making English our national language so that it becomes easier to interact with other countries. English is the...

...Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Most people are afraid to admit that they fear something because they think that they are the only ones that have that fear, but the truth is that everyone is scared of something. Everyone has at least one fear that when facing it, can cause a memorial moment in their life. I have many fears and I’ve been faced with one of my biggest fears for a few years now, and it still lingers on to this day. On thanksgiving 2012, I wanted to spend the night at my friend’s house named Kayla since she was having a big thanksgiving party, but my parents said I couldn’t go. At first I was confused because we never did anything special on thanksgiving, so I didn’t think it would have been such a big conflict. That night, my parents sat me down at the dining room table once my brother and sister were sound asleep. Sitting there, I was so confused on what they were going to tell me that was supposed to be “so important”. They took a deep breath and told me that what I was about to hear, was going to change my perspective on our family. They told me that my dad Clay was not my biological dad, and that my biological dad’s name is Shaun. In that moment, my whole life got turned upside down. A thousand questions ran thru my head like “Why didn’t they tell me sooner?” “Why did my biological dad leave?”, “Is it because of me?”, “Was I a mistake?” I was too shocked to ask......

...“Mommy, can you check under my bed?” Do you remember believing in monsters under your bed? The fear that griped at your feet as you made a dash for the covers every night? When did that fear become diminished? As we got older we started to ask less and less for mom to check under the bed, we started to understand that make believe doesn’t exist and that monsters under our beds are little kid brains running on overdrive ignorance. That’s it IGNORNCE; the lack of knowledge, that is what made us afraid the lack of knowing what is real and what is not. But “knowledge has banished fear” as Athol furgard once said. Once we started to gain knowledge myths and legends started to go against everything science could prove “real”. According to science fear is a motivating force coming from the ability to sense danger and getting away from it. Also known as the fight-or-flight response you mostly see in animals when under attack. People have a fear for the unknown, we aren’t scared to try something new but more at what the results would be. They limit themselves to curtain things that they know and the rest they put on a shelf claiming it too high to reach, because of the fear of what it might hold. Today I urge you to stop putting the unknown on a shelf, start testing with it explore it to its max. There are people who hide away from things that makes them afraid and then there are people who rush after it. These people are called adrenalin junkies. You might......

Why We Fear Medicolegal Litigation

...Why we fear medicolegal litigations and how to overcome it? In today’s era we fear medicolegal issues more than any other thing. Many doctors do not treat any complicated case. Collegues have even stop going to the other doctor’s places in case of emergency for the fear of the litigations. Is it really true? Actually if we see the frequency of medicolegal litigations, It is very less though it is increasing day by day. But even if the frequency is low, the one who suffers through it, suffers almost 100%. The reasons for suffering are many: * We fear media and defamation, * We also fear punishment in terms of jail, * We doctors usually don’t have time and if we have to attend court then it is difficult for us. * Unlike other professionals ( e.g. Engineers, Lawyers, Architects etc..) we always try to deliver the best of our knowledge and services so there is always a pressure of the next case on our heads. * We are expected to win every time in every case All these things are difficult to handle. Moreover there is no support from the government; rather there are instances of harassment on the name of various certificates and laws. We have cordoned ourselves into various partitions like gynecologists, radiologists, physicians, super specialists, general practitioners etc.. As far as medical practice is concerned this is perfectly fine but as far as medicolegal issues are concerned we all are sailing in the same boat and we must support each......

Toulmin Model

...and side with pro legalization in America and are even questioning why it is illegal. There are many reasons why people support its legalization. Many say it would actually prove to be more helpful if it were legalized. Legalization could help America’s economy, health and crime. In one article journalist Ryan Schuette uses logos, ethos and pathos to support this claim and proves how legalizing marijuana as soon as possible could help America thrive in the near future. Schuette starts off his argument with his first supporting statement, that the legalization of the drug would bring our country economic relief. Its legalization would create jobs and help prevent bankruptcy, which America definitely needs at this moment in time. There is no way around this fact for anyone who is against the legalization of the drug. The United States has a total debt of 17 trillion dollars and with 20 billion dollars in debt alone in Detroit, who recently became the largest city in America to declare bankruptcy after years of financial instability. The author takes a look at The Budgetary Impact of Ending Drug Prohibition, written by Jeffery Miron and Katherine Waldock of Cato Institute, which approximates the America could gain $8.7 billion dollars in revenue if we legalize and tax the sale of marijuana. Taxes on marijuana would be very similar to the taxes we see on the sale of tobacco. Schuette then turns to the National Household Survey another credible source on drug abuse which shows...

... Cheapie D | March 13, 2015 Cheapie D |  | March 13, 2015 MY Barriers Do you have a fear/phobia of something small and nice or something big and harmless? Well if you ask me I have a fear/phobia of crickets or you can say I have insect phobia. Often whenever I see crickets I freak out, but some people take my phobia as a joke. Such as throwing fake crickets at me and throwing real crickets at me. While there laughing their heads off, I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Sometimes I’ll soften up and watch them chirp on the wall at night. I’ve tried to face my fear a couple times and try to touch them, yet every time I try I run away. I don’t know why, but every time they jump out at me I am a scaredy-cat and run off like a girl. Time flies by fast because every attempt I make involving crickets I feel a little better. Now I am quite cool with seeing crickets, but I still can’t stand touching them and them touching me. So if you ask me “How was your overall experience with my fear/phobia of crickets?” My answer would be “My overall experience with my fear/phobia of crickets was bad at first, but it got better overtime. Don’t get me wrong, I still have more work to do involving crickets.” I am so glad my fear/phobia is getting better. I can remember when I saw a cricket for the first time in my life. I was scared to death. I am so much better now....

Artistole & Toulmin

...Definitions, Claims, Support & Warrants and Artistotle & Toulmin Assignment Argument One: For deer hunting to be made illegal in Illinois Main claim - Hunting should be made illegal in Illinois it seems to be a unsafe and ineffective form of recreation . Key terms in the main claim - Unsafe = The fact that there is over 100 hunting deaths in the United States every year Illegal = Forbidden by law Recreation = Activity done for enjoyment when one is not working Support: 3 reasons/sub-claims- Hunting endangers the whole entire community at times, not just the willing hunters Studies have shown that car and deer collisions increase during hunting season. (Reasoning for this is because the deer are scared in the woods and run wildly right into unseen traffic) Hunting is unethical coming from the animals rights Rebuttals: give two - It is wrong because we are not letting nature do its job and letting it run its course like it should (whether it be sick or starving, It doesn't matter) It is not morally correct to go out killing and wounding animals Concession: give one - I think that we could compromise and make there be a specific laws on how many we could kill a year… How I plan to appeal to the audience using: - Ethos (how I will get my audience to trust me) - 1.

...FEAR OF ALTOPHOBIA Veronica Taylor ENG121: ENGLISH COMPOSITION 1(AXC1420C) Instructor: Erin Nelson May 16, 2014 Fear of Alto phobia The fear I need to conquer is my fear of heights. Heights are one of my biggest fears that I have tried numerous of times to get over. This fear causes me to have real bad anxiety attacks to where I sweat, shake, have blurred vision, and have trouble breathing to where I have an asthma attack. One day my sister tried to help me conquer my fears by making me ride on roller coaster and that day is the day that I will never forget because she made my fears worst. The bad thing about my fear is when I go to sleep I picture myself up high in the air somewhere falling and wake up instantly nervous in a cold sweat, scared and emotional. Every time I go to an amusement park I promise every one that I am going to ride on all the rides. When I get there, I freeze up and back out. My sister always forces me to get on the biggest ride which is called The Beast. The beast is concerned to be the longest and biggest rollercoaster and it’s made out of wood. They tell me that I can do it and that it’s not that bad, but they lied. I wanted to get on so bad but, my fear just took over and wouldn’t let me just like always. What really causes me to have a fear of heights was the movie called Final Destination. In the movie all kinds of disturbing and crazy things happen. In one of the sense there were people up on the rollercoaster riding when...

Fear Not

...Luke 1:26-38 FEAR NOT Intro: Fear has been a part of the human existence since the fall of man in Genesis 3:8-10. Everyone, regardless of how brave they seem, is afraid of something. I, personally, am afraid of heights. Not so much afraid of being of there, because the views are incredible. Not afraid of the fall, because free fall is an exhilarating experience. If I had to define my fear, I would have to say that my fear of heights is really a fear of the sudden stop that awaits me at the bottom of my fall. I say again, everyone is afraid of something. (Snakes, Spiders, Disease, Financial Setbacks, Old Age, Gray Hair, Rejection, Disappointment, Exposure, Being Forgotten, Etc.) Even in the Bible, we can see where men were stalked by their fears: 1. Abraham lied about Sarah out of fear - Gen. 12:11-13 2. Jacob displayed fear of Esau - Gen. 32:6-8 3. Moses feared Pharaoh - Ex. 2:14 4. Moses feared Rejection - Ex. 4:1 5. The Disciples feared the storm - Matt. 8:24-26 Nothing has changed! People are still caught in the grip of their fears, and this is even true during the Christmas Season. A time that should be joyous, happy and totally Christ-centered. We fear not having enough money, of not meeting everyone's expectations, we worry over meals, over who will be there and who will not. We just seem to fear everything. Three times God sent angelic messengers to the earth with messages connected to the birth of His Son, the Lord Jesus. Each time, they brought big news, news...
