1) Pepsi: Propaganda techniques: Emotional Appeal, Glittering Generalities I like this ad because it is very funny and interesting. The target audience is young people. The commercial first suggested that if you had musical talent you were eligible for something as “great” as pepsi. By the end when the girl said “No, pepsi for all,” it set a feeling that pepsi was great for everybody. The mood and tone the ad wants to represent is power and richness. Everyone in the commercial is dressed in extravagant olden-times clothing. The colors are mainly dark, rich colors like black a purple which represent power, elegance . . . . . .
When “Stone’s Gas” first opened, the price for gas was ridiculously high. Usually, no one in their right mind would pay $4.11 per liter of gas. Sometimes, though, when you need gas and there are no other better choices, you get desperate enough and will spend as much as you need to. This is called a monopoly. The customers were far away from any other gas stations and gas was a very big priority; there was a high demand for it. Therefore, the customers had to pay the ridiculous price.When Tasha opened “Smells Like James Bond’s Gas”, a competition was formed. The . . . . . .
Hello, dearest daughter of mine. I have taken the time to write you and the rest of my family back home this letter to let you know how everything is going where I am. When I first arrived on the boat to head towards my new home I was very nervous. Many questions were going through my mind like whether or not everyone was going to get along, or if I had the right materials I needed to survive all season. Throughout all this nervousness, I was also very excited. I was excited to see what the land looked like . . . . . .
When I first saw “Kony 2012″ all over Facebook I was kind of curious of what it was all about. I saw different opinions on it; most people were for it, but there were also people against it. Some people who were against it said that it was fake, while others were saying this isn’t the first time something like this has happened in Africa, so why should we care now? Well no matter the opinion, in a matter of just 12 hours it was all there was on Facebook. I didn’t have time to watch that night but I . . . . . .

Having a safe haven means that you have a way of escaping reality; hiding from your pain and problems. “The Game” by Teresa Toten, is a book about a girl named Dani who ends up in an institution for teens. Dani was both mentally and physically abused at home by her manipulative father. Physical abuse may cause bruises to the skin but mental abuse hurts one psychologically and makes the mind mess with that person. This influences the main theme of the book. Dani drowned out her problems by abusing alcohol and drugs. When she was in danger, she created . . . . . .
In French class, we watched a movie called “La Grande Séduction”. It is about a very small and under populated French town where the people are all unemployed and unhappy. The movie made me realize that their culture in the movie, Quebec, is so different from Alberta culture. I think anybody would agree that Alberta is definitely a better place to live. In the next few paragraphs I will explain how. In Quebec, the people were all unemployed and poor. They got welfare cheques every two weeks, which isn’t very much money at all. Fishing was an industry for a . . . . . .
Briefly, Dani’s problems are that she was abused at home by her father. She never felt good enough for him, and the one thing she wanted more than anything was for him to be proud of her for something. He beat the crap out of her, but it didn’t really seem like Dani cared all that much. The physical abuse was nothing compared to the need of him being proud of her. If I described the climax of the novel in two or three sentences I would say that it was Dani finially started opening up and describing her old . . . . . .
The book doesn’t tell me, but I think Dani is in the institution because her Dad pressured her into substance abusing. The book gives hints that Dani’s father was a bad man. He made Dani scared, and made her think she wasn’t good enough. She wanted him to be impressed with her for once. I got this idea from the part about Dani’s dance recital. “She’d been sick with all week an ear infection. Her father thought she was faking it. So Dani started to fake being fine while swallowing handfuls of tylenol.” Dani wanted him to be proud of . . . . . .
This book is all about the thought process. It’s meant to really make the reader think about what is really going on, and if things are really as they appear. I have not exactly figured much out about the book yet but I have made a few inferences. Dani is in a mental hospital for teenagers. The book hasn’t explained why yet but I inferred that she was put into a mental hospital because of her dad. The book gave a few hints that her father beat on her; “No more! No, Daddy., Daddy please…”. I thought that this would . . . . . .
