All the above can serve the purpose. You can start your writing with a thesis statement; it is to guide a reader to the main point. A hook for a compare and contrast essay can vary. You can find one or two best features of the two discussed objects and write them as the opening sentence of your piece, creating interest for a reader. Alternatively, you can intrigue the reader with a question, quotation, or a scene. In case you want to use a key feature as a hooking element in an essay, it is recommended repeating the same within the body of your writing. To write a good hook in an essay requires particular skills, but practicing will help you find the best solution for certain cases. Here we go with the mixed example: Early Puzzles and Dissected Maps as Imperial Heuristics This beginning is a good example of how a fact can be used in an intro.
Consumer culture and the capitalist mindset have taught us to substitute acts of personal consumption or enlightenment for organized political resistance. An Inconvenient Truth helped raise consciousness about global warming. But did you notice that all of the solutions presented had to do with personal consumption — changing light bulbs, inflating tires, driving half as much — and had nothing to do with shifting power away from corporations, or stopping the growth economy that is destroying the planet?
Even if every person in the United States did everything the movie suggested, U. Scientific consensus is that emissions must be reduced by at least 75 percent worldwide. We so often hear that the world is running out of water.

Among others, a british man declares that he is better than others because of being from Britain and specifically expresses disdain for the germans. In Nike’s commercial for Euro , “The Switch” , Christiano Ronaldo and a British teenager learned that they have switched bodies after each of them look into the mirror. Anime and Manga In Hal , Hal is a robot who has been programmed with the personality of the real Hal, to help his former lover deal with the devastating loss the real Hal’s death was to her.
A blow to the head Hal receives later snaps the truth of the matter to him, that he is in fact a man who was driven insane and believed himself to be a robot after the death of his lover and the girl he has been helping get over her loss? A robot programmed with the personality of the dead girl to help him deal with his loss.
They do, however, have an ace up their sleeve, as Mei Misaki can use her doll’s eye to see “the color of death. Their being the same person is not an example of this trope, however: The fact that she was dead? No one saw that coming, not even her.

The culture clash heard ’round the world 20 years later, an oral history of DaimlerChrysler DaimlerChrysler Co-Chairman Juergen Schrempp front and center with the gold tie with Bob Eaton, the other co-chairman, on his left. Soon after the merger in , the topmost Daimler-Benz and Chrysler executives gathered for this picture on the 15th Floor of Chrysler’s headquarters in Auburn Hills, Mich.
By Richard Johnson and Larry P. Vellequette Photos by Joe Wilssens The strange thing is that May 6, , a Wednesday, started out just like any other day. The following day — 20 years ago today — the deal was announced, or more like proclaimed, at a hastily called yet flawlessly organized press conference at the London Arena, where security guards wore matching bronze jackets, waiters circulated with trays of canapes and fruit punch, and Chrysler Corp.
CEO Bob Eaton never once stopped smiling. Whatever kind of deal it was, a merger or takeover or just a jamming together of two giant companies, it was beyond historic. We sat in thrall at this union that had not been rumored or speculated and yet was suddenly upon us. I watched as Eaton, on stage, called it a “merger of equals.
Friends season 1 The first season introduces the six main characters: Ross, who has had a crush on Rachel since the two of them were in high school, constantly attempts to tell her how he feels about her.

Characteristics The emo band Hawthorne Heights in Emo originated in hardcore punk   and is considered a form of post-hardcore. That is, punk that wears its heart on its sleeve and tries a little tenderness to leaven its sonic attack. If it helps, imagine Ricky Nelson singing in the Sex Pistols. Origins The melodic guitars, varied rhythms and personal lyrics of Rites of Spring changed the hardcore punk scene and helped launch the “emotional hardcore” or “emocore” style.

It gave me a front-row seat at the beginning of what we now refer to as the sexual revolution. I watched as the young women around me gave in to the onslaught. But it was not a game, not for me and not for the young women around me. We had entered college life full of hope; for many, that hope dissolved in the meaningless sexual encounters that lay in wait for us. Though the cultural transformation that took place during that time is widely considered to have been liberating, I now recognize those events as the beginning of a new kind of servitude.
When it did, there was usually some kind of party; when it did not, the girl disappeared. Abortion on demand, the one thing remaining that would ensure complete sexual freedom, was still out of reach. Or such was the assumption. It had all happened so fast. At first, at least, that was a hard step to take. The men were looking for conquests. The women took their chances on every date—and every date brought with it the same tussle. Until, finally, one by one, the women, exhausted, surrendered.
Now, there were women who seemed to thrive in this situation.
Conventional wisdom puts the beginning of modern conspiracy-theory culture at the JFK assassination. But it probably makes more sense to think of it evolving in its aftermath, in the years following the shooting, once the shock wore off. In the late s, that is, which just so happen to be the years when the country radically polarized along the political lines we now know so oppressively well. It was also the locus of an ideological battlefield over who were the heroes and who the real villains in American life: We floated conspiracy theories, in other words, as a way of projecting politics.

November 13, — Restructure! Here is a definition of culture from Wikipedia: Culture can be defined as all the ways of life including arts, beliefs and institutions of a population that are passed down from generation to generation. Obviously, white people have culture. What is less obvious is why most white liberals think that they have no culture, and why most white liberals think that anybody who is non-white has culture that white people do not, even if these non-white people are living in the same society as the whites.
The Julian calendar derived from older calendar systems from Ancient Rome. White people view non-white people as foreign. Grandpa Dinosaur at Pregnant Drug-Dealing Prostitutes eloquently explains why White Canadians think that Canadians of colour are foreign and why Eurocentric schooling miseducates white people about reality: They speak as though they are demanding tithings.
In , 11 Australian commandos , all white, disguised themselves as Malay fishermen by dyeing their skin brown and boarding a fishing boat. They sailed through 2, miles of Japanese-controlled ocean from Australia to Singapore. At one point they even traveled right alongside a Japanese warship without them noticing anything strange which was good, because none of the commandos could speak Malay.
They then took canoes right into Singapore Harbor, where they blew up seven Japanese ships before escaping.

Play Video And sex is just a swipe of a mobile phone screen away. The online era has reportedly killed emotional intimacy. And Tinder – the dating app in which users shuffle through photos of hotties like a deck of playing cards – is the latest villain charged with its demise. Advertisement Tinder is not the first technology to facilitate casual sex. Dubbed ”sex satnav”, the app allows people to check out who’s up for a date in their area.
Swiping a photo to the right indicates they like what they see. A swipe to the left is a thumbs-down. Only when a pair both like each other’s pictures can they exchange messages. It has sent parents and social commentators into a frenzy. They worry it’s emblematic of an increasingly disposable culture that is devaluing sexual relationships and causing a generation to emotionally tune out.
Ben, a year-old Tinder user from Melbourne might not assuage their fears. Sometimes I’ll have four or five dates lined up in the one week and when I say dates, I really mean f s because, well, that’s what it’s all about. You match, arrange a time to catch up and have sex.
However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one.

Commentary Tech Industry For women in tech’s male culture, mentoring matters Commentary: Melinda Gates credits her high school math teacher with her career strategy of finding mentors who are coaches instead of cheering sections. They were more motivated and more self-assured — and, crucially, more likely to look for engineering jobs after graduation.
As a woman in tech, I’ve seen the difference mentors have made in my own life. And as someone who cares a lot about changing tech’s male-dominated culture, I want to know: How can we encourage mentoring for the next generation of industry leaders? So I was excited to chat with Caroline Ghosn, founder and CEO of Levo, a company that connects millennials with the resources they need to excel in the workplace. We talked about the mentors who have helped us along the way and the role mentors might play in setting up the next generation for success.
Through her work at the foundation, she has seen firsthand that empowering women and girls can improve the health and prosperity of families, communities and societies. Do you have mentors? How did you find them?
