Imagine standing in a long line, in a hot, crowded courthouse, why are you there? Are you there to renew your driver’s license? Are you there to get new tags for your vehicle?
You’re not there to renew your license, or get new tags for your vehicle, you’re there to VOTE. Ignore the crowd around you and keep in mind that you are there for a great reason.
As a registered American voter, I would like to share with you the 4 steps for voting, show you the importance of voting, and encourage you to become a registered voter.

Let me take you back to a critical time in America’s history.
Let us begin by talking about the time or the civil war. It started in 1861.
By the time of the Civil War, most white men were allowed to vote.
In 1869, the 15th Amendment guaranteed the right to vote to black men, with most women of all races still unable to vote.
Before the civil rights movement, which started in 1955, only free, rich, white men who owned property could vote. Although freed African Americans could vote in four states, white working men, almost all women, and all people of color were denied the right to vote.

There is no doubt that people lost their lives fighting for rights to vote. People have lost their lives for us to vote in war. Also, some people performed courageous acts on their own to try and prove a point and died.

Who fought so hard for us to vote? Women and men who supported the cause fought. Susan b Anthony, perhaps the most well-known women’s rights activist in history fought for women and black people to be able to vote.
She believed that men and women should study, live and work as equals. Susan had strong beliefs about justice and equality for women and for black people.
The federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 happened due to the pressures of Dr. MLK. It was to remove the restrictions on who could vote in elections. Lyndon B. Johnson…...

...Persuasive Letter Nur/ 405 May 2012 Persuasive Letter Dear Editor, Recently I have done a windshield survey of the community of Vale and an assessment on a family and would like to bring to your attention about a health problem that is affecting both groups. Vale has a host of health problems which includes drug and alcohol use, but the one that I am addressing is obesity. The Friedman family assessment done on the family I chose also cooks in a lot of grease and carbohydrate that is affecting their family’s health. This indicates to me that these unhealthy choices need to be addressed because the family may be at risk for heart disease. Both the community and the family are at risk for health problems that are related to obesity. This problem is related to the culture of the people in the community which is similar to the culture of the family. I am writing to you as a member of the Vale community and a healthcare professional that has worked with the family at risk. I am confident that with proper knowledge and adequate resources in place, both groups would benefit by learning how to incorporate what they learn in their daily activities and how to make healthy food choices. The National institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease, (2011), states that “obesity refers to an excessive amount of adipose tissue and occurs when more calories are consumed than burned; energy balance is tipped toward weight gain, overweight, and obesity.” Some......

...and conclusions. The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you to case studies and the analysis process, and to a proper format for writing the case study analysis report. Try not to worry about trying to find the "right answer" to a case. Usually, there is no single right answer. Most cases are intentionally ambiguous and can be viewed from many different perspectives. Several feasible solutions are usually available to any give case. The best solution is the one you can best support with thoughtful analysis, logical arguments, and substantiating evidence from your research or your own experience. Your goal in analyzing a case is to provide an effective solution to the situation outlined and to support that solution with solid and persuasive evidence. Overview Analyzing a case study can take several forms, and you should check with your instructor on the specific approach or point of view that he or she recommends. For example, you might analyze the case from the perspective that you are the central character of the narrative and must provide a report of what you would do in the situation. On the other hand, you might play the role of an outside consultant hired to evaluate the situation for which you provide a report. Make sure you allow enough time for the various tasks you must perform. These tasks are listed below and explained in more detail in the following sections. (Note: When writing a case analysis as an exercise in a writing class, there will be no......

...Bob Baumgardner Rough Draft 8.3 Persuasive Writing Gun control laws in the United States need to be closely evaluated and revised without infringing upon the 2nd Amendment rights of any law abiding citizen in the U.S. so the real issue of unnecessary tragic events and violent crime statistics can be positively impacted. Extending background checks is a good start. Affording more help to individuals with mental disabilities or emotional distress. Most importantly, more attention needs to be directed to illegal possession and sale of firearms. Criminal background checks should be performed upon any sale or transfer related to any and all aspects of firearms. Any and all transfers of a firearm should be treated in like as a motor vehicle sale, as in it should have a title. At the minimum, a firearm sale between to citizens should be in witness and support by a person with an FFL. Ammunition should require equal background checks as the sale of a rifle or handgun. Someone who purchases bulk amounts of ammunition and has no record of owning a firearm can be scrutinized and questioned of the motives for the purchase of the firearms. One system that needs to be overhauled is the way we handle, care for and resources afforded to the mentally ill in this country. Statistically, violent crimes involving the murder of multiple innocent bystanders are committed by an individual who is mentally ill. These individuals should or should not be on medications that alter their mental...

...Persuasive Memo To: Michael Sachse From: Maya Staniucha Subject: Upgrading our Inventory System software Our inventory system has been an issue for several years, it seems to affect our job and puts a damper on our sales. I would like to bring to your attention that our warehouse runs on the same software as the inventory and we had to face some issues with the system we have today. Because of the computer system we have we could not account for all the inventory that is available on daily bases. It causes conflict with actual inventory is available in the warehouse versus what the inventory system actual states that inventory on hand and causes difficulty to sell the merchandise if unable to confirm its availability. By updating software we can better account for inventory that are incoming versus the one we have on hand. Due to the lack of communication our production is not at 100%. Investing in this software could bring up productivity of inventory , and aid our sales department with accurate information of the inventory. Further more, this software might cost the company money that is not in the budget but it will be retrieved by cutting down cost on hiring temporary warehouse employees to help us maintain the warehouse each time we get in house shipment. It also will help ship out merchandise faster to clients and cut cost in returned item that were sent out wrong. The program also lets us do a better job on making orders correct without having any issues in......

Central Idea: The cost to properly care for a horse, the importance of horse slaughter houses, and what we can do to help. INTRODUCTION I. You’re driving past a lot that has no grass, no water, and three starving horses just standing there. And you wonder why people would just keep these horses there in this type of condition. II.

...Stefan Monsouir Eng. 106 / ERAU 17 MAY 2014 Persuasive Essay Rough Reality television today is destroying generation after generation of young people. You cannot turn on the television without seeing some type of drama in the form of fighting, someone finding out that their three year romantic online relationship was a lie, or even sixteen year old girls who got knocked up and think they have it all figured out until the reality sets in. The largest fan base for reality television is children and teenagers who are being negatively influenced by what they see and hear on these shows. One big problem with reality television is that it promotes violence. It does not matter if it is a competition cooking show, a group of random individuals living together, or a show about a pawn shop; there is always some type of fight happening. Whether it is a heated argument and both parties are in each other’s face yelling or in some cases there have been actual fights, it is like producers love the fact that there are fights on their shows because that is what boosts ratings and that’s what makes them money. Television producers actually manipulate situations to create tension and fights and even though producers don’t come right out and admit it, you can see it in the commercials for the show when all you see is the fights and the drama; it is what catches the eyes of the watcher and sparks the interest. Among the fighting and the arguing, the fact that people have such......

Persuasive Communication

...Persuasive Communication Amy McBroom February 9,2015 Business 211 Brigitte Culberson-Austin Communication is the process of exchanging information between an individual. In a business setting there is a proper form of communication called persuasive communication. Persuasive communication is the process of transmitting information to another person, next making sure the individual understands and agrees to the information. For this method of communication to be effective, one may disguise the information to make it more believable. Persuasive communication is most effective used in these types of scenarios such as manager to manager, manager to employee, or department-to-department. There are four methods of communication with different levels of persuasiveness. First, face-to-face communication is between two people at the same location. During a face-to-face conversation, the sender and receiver can read each other’s body language. The sender should be confident in relaying the message; this will show the importance of the message. Active listening also plays a role in face-to-face conversations. The sender can listen to feedback from the receiver of the message. This form of communication is proven to be the most effective because the sender and receiver can use body language and the voice to interpret the message. Second, a phone call is between two people located at different locations. During the phone call......

...Persuasive Speech Ideas These penguins are persuading their friends to take a dip in the cool water... but you can persuade our class on any of the following ideas or come up with one of your own. Remember these are broad topics so make sure you narrow your area and choose your side so that you can properly defend your position. Also I NEVER censor speech topics HOWEVER keep in mind I want the ideas fresh, some topics are very OVER DONE - for example: "smoking is bad for you" - no kidding I think we would all agree with that. "everyone should go to college" - DUH you are preaching to the choir. "std's are bad you should protect yourself" - well there is a new idea. "drinking and driving could kill you or someone you love" - again no one would argue with that logic. So if you are going to pick a topic make sure you approach it in a fresh and exciting way - for example: "Barbie is a good role model" "Smoking Cigarettes are bad for you, so smoke cigars!" 1. same sex marriage 2. adoption 3. heaven and hell (careful to not preach to your audience) 4. abortion (overdone) 5. TV violence 6. gun control (overdone) 7. TV ratings 8. internet 9. profiling 10. Vietnam 11. immigrant laws 12. exercise 13.

As the growth of World Wide Web grew, more and more businesses have gone live on the web. This growth has provided consumers with many retail choices to make the lives easier for the online community. Although it makes things easier for online consumers, companies that have chosen to be an online retailer realize that it has been and will continue to grow competitively which makes it a hostile environment. Along with trying to obtain new customers or members, attempting to retain existing one’s have been the challenge. To do so, these retailers need to understand their customers or their target of choice and their process towards a purchase, to ensure they are structured to serve their customers to the highest level. The paper being presented is to identify three behaviors inherent in e tailing. In the paper I will discuss the communications medium where the discussed behavior occurs.

...Persuasive Messages Christina Morgan Com 295 September 21, 2015 Edward Dempsey Persuasive Messages Dear Sir., The creative production team has come up a design for a new car. Now that the design of muscle cars is coming back we want to introduce a new muscle car that is a combination of all the classics such as the; 1964 ½ Mustang Mach 1, 1979 Grand Torino GT, Cobra 428, 1968 Shelby Mustang, and the 1971 Mustang Boss 351. Each of these provided a unique design on their own with similar motor styles. The current name we are calling this is the “The Cobra Sting”. With the economy on the rise and car sales picking back with a renewed interest in muscle cars that has not been seen in many years we believe that with the right design, this car could put Ford back on the #1 sales list. Each member of the creative production team agreed that the ultimate muscle car appeals to all demographics of age and sex. Instead of mass production, we suggest producing only 50 to 60 show room modules. This will give clients something to view, test drive, and inspect. We can allow custom orders for certain colors, though we believe that there should be one model with all the pluses of modern technology with the design of the classics. Today’s cars are made of plastic and fiber glass, this car “The Cobra Sting” should go back to the roots of the classics of metal with a combination of fiberglass. According to the Ford Mustang Cobra is still ranked the #1 Muscle Car in America...

Shopping via the internet is available through many companies, as well as enables the customer to save time and effort. Online shopping is also more convenient than going to the company’s store to shop. Electronic retailers understand this has become a competitive environment. These companies must not only find innovative ways to grow their business, but also maintain their existing customers. Electronic retailers must understand the customer behavior and understand the decision-making process a customer goes through prior to making a purchase. The main focus of this paper is to recognize three behaviors essential in e-retailing. I will discuss the communications medium in which each behavior occurs, as well as, explain how each medium enables e-commerce. I will examine each behavior using the communication process, to include the purpose, sender, receiver, message, environment, noise, technology, and feedback. E-Retailing Behaviors When a consumer starts their research for a product or service on the Internet, there are several aspects taken into account. Most consumers will be more inclined to brand names they trust to begin searching for a product, because they have established a sense of trust and loyalty with that name through experiences in other shopping techniques.
