To write an effective essay your main goal is to use one or more of the rhetorical modes.
I use the different modes almost everyday on a personal and professional level. For instance, argumentative could be used in the work area, but might make some people get in to a disagreement about certain issues. Argumentative is an educated guess or opinion and not necessarily a fact, it is simply a form of debating. For instance, my husband smoke cigarettes, but it should be banned because it is not healthy. He does not agree with me and says “people live for many years smoking cigarettes”. I can provide him with evidence to back up my reasons. Not all the time you will agree with what someone else does or says, so that is when argument writing comes in place, because everyone has their own opinions.

I use narration writing almost everyday with my job. I work at a helicopter pad that transports military and civilians across Iraq to different destinations. When someone gets hurt on the job I have to fill out an incident report. This document describes the event indebt that, and make the person that has to read it understand what happened easily and feel as if they was there. In the report I have to write down in order from the time the person came off the helicopter till the time of the accident. I also keep a journal and I write in narration form, so I can go back and recall my days.

Process Analysis/Illustration is an essay or form of writing with intelligent examples which supports this thesis statement. Some topics require more adequate illustrations than others. Therefore, the writer should consider cautiously analyzing the possible way of expressing writer’s ideas.

The last form of writing I will describe is a very informative mode for my job also. I have a lot of unauthorized personnel trying to get on the helicopter. If they do not have a…...

...Ariel Davenport English 1301 10-24-06 Brushing and Flushing: A guide to morning hygiene for the average person. Good morning hygiene habits are one of the most important habits that you will ever develop. It will help you stay refreshed even in the most grueling parts of the day. And let us be honest with ourselves we would much rather hang around the person how always smells good and has clean fingernails than the person who does not always shower. The first and most important thing that will take place in your morning hygiene is your shower. Showering is important because it removes the sweat, old deodorant and helps you feel invigorated in the early morning. When you take your shower, it is a good idea to not be so fast that you go from just being quick to “I did not get all of the deodorant residue off and my hair is still greasy.” Now depending on whether you just shave your face or your entire body may affect the order of theses events. For instance you might want to shave your legs before you shower so that you can wash off the residue for the shaving cream or if you have facial hair that might get matted down. If you shave your arms, legs, aka large parts of your body you should consider waxing seeing as that would free up a free up a large part of your morning. After a shower it is a good idea to start getting dressed mainly because it illegal to go around naked and secondly clothing does provide a huge amount of protection in everyday life. Imagine......

...Fundamentals Macroeconomics is the study of the economy as a whole as opposed to microeconomics, which is the study of the economy within smaller sectors. It is a wide and varying subject. In order to grasp the subject there are some fundamentals that one needs to be familiar with. They are the gross domestic product (GDP), real gross domestic product (GDP), nominal gross domestic product (GDP), unemployment rate, inflation rate, and interest rate. These are the basics and interact with each other to determine the condition of the economy at any given moment. Domestic Products The gross domestic product is the total of everything produced within the US economy during a given period of time. It is the market value of all FINAL products. This means that only when an item is ready for consumer purchase is it tallied into the GDP. The individual pieces of the product are not counted before production. The GDP is used to get the real gross domestic product (GDP) and the nominal gross domestic product (GDP). The real GDP is what the GDP itself is actually worth as opposed to what it cost. The nominal GDP is the face value of the GDP. In other words, what it is actually going to sell for. Rates The unemployment rate is the number of people who are able, available to work, and actively seeking employment but who are not actually working. Inflation rate is the rate prices rise in a given period and interest rate is a percent of what one is charged when he or she charges an item....

...Fundamentals of Macroeconomics Paper Laurie Page ECO/372 November 06, 2013 Beau Whitney Fundamentals of Macroeconomics Paper Macroeconomics affects households, the government, and businesses. The gross domestic product (GDP) measures the dollar value of products or a service at any given time period and shows how strong the economy is. The real GDP measures the dollar value as it changes in the market. Nominal GDP measures how strong the dollar value is (because of inflation, figures are sometimes inconsistent). The unemployment rate is measured by how many people are reported out of work in a country at any given time. The inflation rate measures how prices increase and decrease and shows the strength and power of the economy. Interest rate measures the amount of money that will be paid back to a loan company when taking out a loan. GDP is the measure of the output of a country, state, or city. When shopping for household goods or purchasing product for a business the GDP, real GDP, and nominal GDP play an important role as to what is actually purchased. The GDP is going to determine how much the product is going to cost the consumer. The real GDP (which determines the value of the dollar) will determine whether the consumer wants to purchase the product at the asking price. The nominal GDP measure the dollar value and determines whether the consumer can afford to purchase products. Because of inflation prices change and the dollar value is not consistent....

Fundamentals of Macroeconomics

...Fundamentals of Macroeconomics April Sheffler Principles of Macroeconomics ECO/372 January 24, 2014 Gaminie Meepagala Terms There are a few terms that should be defined before exploring macroeconomics. • Gross domestic product (GDP) - refers to the total market value of the goods and services that are produced in a country in a year. • Real GDP- refers to the value of the goods and services that are produced in a country in a year, after being adjusted for inflation. • Nominal GDP- refers to the value of the goods and services that are produced in a country in a year, before the adjustments of inflation. • Unemployment rate - refers to the number of people in a country who do not have a job but are able to work. • Inflation rate - refers to how fast the prices of goods and services in a country are rising. The higher the rate is, the less the public’s purchasing power is. • Interest rate - refers to how an additional fee that is charged by a lender when money is borrowed. The higher the rate is, the more money will be charged to the borrower.

Slocum ABOUT This Book A college student challenged a senior citizen, saying it was impossible for their generation to understand his. "You grew up in a different world," the student said. "Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy, computers..." Taking advantage of a pause in the student's litany, the geezer said, "You're right. We didn't have those things when we were young; so we invented them! What are you doing for the next generation?"1 This book is about helping people to learn how to create their own future! It does this by taking advantage of the fact that the reader’s LEFT brain sees the LEFT side (FUN) of the book. The RIGHT brain sees the (MENTAL) side of the book. Its simply FUNdaMENTAL! This in itself is a key feature of this book: It seeks to train the brain to think by many a link. Creating things is NOT done by following a monotonous recipe...

...Fundamentals Of Macroeconomics 1 Fundamentals Of Macroeconomics ECO/372 Fundamentals Of Macroeconomics 2 Fundamentals Of Macroeconomics In the following paragraph I will be defining the following in my own words, Gross domestic product (GDP), Real GDP, Nominal GDP, Unemployment rate, Inflation rate, and Interest rate. Gross domestic product (GDP) can be described as the total value of the goods that are produced and the services that were provided in the country for the full year. An example of that would be growing crops and the value of the goods that were produced and the how much they made for the year in total. Real GDP is real gross domestic profit; it is the distinction between real and the nominal values in economics. The nominal value is the final market value of the goods. Nominal GDP is the accurate prices in the market. This would include everything from how the prices on the goods may have gone up or down. The Unemployment Rate is how many people are actually filling for unemployment this would be people that have gotten laid off from their jobs, been fired or from where they have not been able to find a job. They get the percentage from all the people that are currently in the labor force and getting benefits. The Inflation Rate this is the......

...Assignment 1: Fundamentals of Effective Communication in the Workplace Professor BUS 100 – Introduction to Business May 13, 2014 I work for a defense attorney, and I experience effective communication on a daily basis via email with co-workers and clients. However, I do feel that face-to-face communication is highly effective and important. With face-to-face meeting, the co-workers and clients directly receive the message, and feedback is instantly provided. Resolutions can be made easier during a face-to-face meeting rather than via email or phone conversations. About six months ago I was part of a financial turn around that was a result of successful face-to-face communication. The firm’s office that I work for is called McCallum Law Offices, and my position in the department is senior paralegal and office manager. We work closely with the justice department and handling the financial and critical situations of our client’s lives. A main part of my job was to reconcile financial reports, and have the senior attorney approve them, and then submit them for reimbursement. We were having major issues with the financials and how they accounts were being handled. As with most offices now communication is usually handled via e-mail. When you start having issues like we were, there is only one way to handle this and that is for everyone to be face to face. So if there are any issues they can be resolved immediately. Attorney offices can become very......

Calabresi (2015) “In an unhealthy economy, a single lost job becomes infectious, combining with others and spreading through family, neighborhood and community. Widespread cutbacks in spending by families mean lower demand for businesses and lower tax revenues for the government. This belt-tightening means fewer car sales and thus fewer jobs for car-part makers. It means less government spending on infrastructure and other public services, including economic development” (para, five). Decrease in taxes can be seen if we measure the nation’s wealth. We would look at the GNP (Gross national product. This look at how taxes affect output. We then would look at the aggregate demand equation. * C = consumption spending by individuals * I = investment spending (business spending on machinery, etc.), * G = government purchases * NX = net exports Cloutier (2015), “Consumer spending typically equals two-thirds of GNP. As you would expect, lowering taxes raises disposable income, allowing the consumer to spend additional sums, thereby, increasing GNP. Reducing taxes,......
