Patrick Henry

...In the late 1700´s Patrick Henry delivered a speech called ¨Give Liberty Or Give Death¨ in Virginia in which he asked to fight back against Britain that had been defecting on promises of helping their citizens with all their needs for a long time. Henry was able to persuade the men around him to believe that the United States’ liberty was a cause worth fighting for. Throughout his speech, he appealed to the emotions of his audience giving it some diction and allusions. Henry used a lot of emotional appeals through diction during his speech in order to persuade more and more his audience. At the beginning of his speech, he captured the attention of the people in the convention by saying “Should I keep back my opinions at such a time through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country’’ (line 15). This authorative tone made the audience fearful and anxious about what he was going to say. The emotional appeals in this speech are also formed with the use of figurative language which made his diction different from the usual. The audience can see this when he said, “We must fight! I repeat it sir, we must fight!”. His use of repetition and hyperbole emphasized that no matter what they will fight and they should be prepared. Also Henry took advantage of the feelings of his audience by using rhetorical questions, for example, in line 23 he asked that if the citizens should act like those who have eyes and don’t see, have ears......

...shows oral argument in the case of White v. Gibbs in which Mrs. Debbie White has sued Patrick Gibbs and O’Malley’s Tavern under the civil provisions of Indiana’s Dram Shop Act, Indiana Code 7.1-5-10-15.5.

...and Patrick Read the following case study about Gayle and Patrick. You may also click on the Audio: Thinking It Over if you prefer to listen to the case study. After reviewing the case study, answer the questions on below. Gayle and Patrick have been in a monogamous marriage for seven years. During a medical checkup, Gayle finds that she is HIV positive. Because she has not been sexually active outside her marriage and has never injected drugs, received a blood transfusion, or been hospitalized, she is quite certain that Patrick must have infected her. When she calls the local health clinic to discover if Patrick has been tested for HIV, they tell her that this information is confidential. She does not want to confront Patrick for fear that he may not be infected and she will have to explain her own infection. Audio: Thinking It Over This is a difficult situation for Gayle to find herself in. She has to deal with two very large issues — she's infected with a life-threatening virus and she's living with doubt and fear about her partner. Since she's quite certain he transmitted the virus to her, he most likely is infected. How did he become infected? In what behavior did he participate that put him at risk, and eventually put her at risk as well? Why didn't he tell her about it? Why didn't he have himself tested to make sure he was HIV-free? Most people in such cases would be angry with their partners. But Gayle is holding out that there's a possibility that Patrick......

Rossum V. Patrick

...Rossum v. Patrick 659 F.3d 722 C.A.9 (Cal.), 2011. September 13, 2011 Taylor Ruotsala Criminology 105, Section 01 Professor Weitz April 22, 2012 Rossum v. Patrick Introduction In California, the state supreme court, intermediate courts of appeal and superior courts all have original habeas corpus jurisdiction (Cal. Const. art. VI, § 10. ) Habeas corpus has been an influence within legal matters since 1305 in England. It is translated to mean, “you have the body.” In many Supreme Courts all over the United States, there were different rulings that involved habeas corpus. So much that it became a statute in the Constitution, 28 USC § 2241, the Power to grant writ. This statute expresses the power and limitations that are given to Congress. In Article 1 section 9, the limitations of Congress are expressed: “the Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it” (Cornell). Many defendants argue that their counsel has not represented them fair enough to the jury, which would fail to determine the most just and righteous decision by the jury. Therefore, they file a habeas corpus petition. “The writ of habeas corpus serves as an important check on the manner in which state courts pay respect to federal constitutional rights” (Lectric Law). The writ checks the authority of the court system and the elasticity of their powers. In Rose v. Lundy, 455 U.S. 509, 520 (1982), it......

St Patricks Day

...annually on 17 March to mark the death date of the most commonly recognized patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. It is also a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador. Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is credited with establishing 300 churches in Ireland and of having converted most of the population to Christianity. Patrick was born in Great Britain to a wealthy Alderman and Christian. At 16 Patrick was kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in Ireland. During his captivity as a shepherd, he dedicated himself to his religion. He managed to escape captivity six years, later. Returning to England he believed it was his responsibility to bring Christianity to the Irish. St. Patrick's Day was first celebrated in America in 1737, organized by the Irish Society of Boston, including a feast and religious service. This first celebration of the holiday in the colonies was largely to honour and celebrate the Irish culture that so many colonists had been separated from. St. Patrick's Day parades started in New York in 1762 by a group of Irish soldiers in the British military who marched down Broadway. This began the tradition of a military theme in the parade. Parades and wearing green have always been a traditional part of St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Believe it or not, the color of St. Patrick was not actually green, but blue! In the 19th century, however, green became used as a symbol......

The Commerce Tavern

...Commerce Tavern Executive Summary The Commerce Tavern was a popular restaurant located in Merchants Square, Colonial Williamsburg. H. Franklin Nilson established The Commerce in 1982, and he has been operating this restaurant very well. Recently, Nilson had a conversation with Anne Hamlet from The Virginia Merchants Bank about the acceptance of credit card consumption at The Commerce Tavern. VMB was willing to give The Commerce authorization of the use of MasterCard and Visa cards at the tavern. However, the general payment method of The Commerce was cash-only, Nilson was not sure if this traditional method could always working well for his business in a long term, and if he should make some changes on the cash-only policy. In addition, if Nilson adopted the credit policy at the tavern, there would be related fees levied by VMB along with the increased business of The Commerce. Thus, Nilson must collect useful information and make a deep analysis before making the final decision. Decision Problems In this case of The Commerce Tavern, the major decision problem was that whether or not Nilson should accept credit cards as a kind of payment method at his Tavern. Under this decision problem, Nilson should think about if the cash-only payment method was too simplex to maintain or improve his business in the future; in addition, he had to consider the problem of the levied fees of credit cards. Background of The Commerce Tavern Nilson established the commerce Tavern in......

Patrick Henry

...Patrick Henry 1. According to Patrick Henry, what is the basic question being debated at the Virginia Convention? Patrick Henry says it is “nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery.” 2. What reasons does Henry offer to suggest that the British were not worthy of trust at that time? His main reason was that the British were building a military that he believed was to be used against America. 3. What argument does Henry provide against the notion that the colonies are too weak to fight the British? He says that God has given America what it needs to fight and that America will win if they use what they have been given. He says that America wants to believe that everything is fine. 4. What is Henry implying when he says that he is loyal to "the majesty of heaven...above all earthly kings"? What tone (manner in which an author expresses his attitude) does this statement hold? This means that he is loyal to God over anyone else. His tone is humble and respectful. 5. Why are Henry's final words so effective and memorable?
