1. What elements of satire did you notice upon your first read of the article?
The Onion uses a satirical tone to draw attention to the public’s gullibility and the advertising industry’s power. There is a touch of humor throughout the article that mocks the exaggerated diction advertisers use in real life. The article even goes as far as to make up its own scientific diction including the change of neutrons into “comfortrons” and nuclei to “pain-nuclei.” 2. What rhetorical strategies contribute to the satire? How are they effectively used?
The use of numerous hyperboles throughout article brings awareness to the fact that advertisements do the same thing, over-exaggerations. The article in its entirety is ironic, it is an advertisement making fun of advertisements, which adds some humor to the criticism. 3. What are the key differences between student response 2A and student response 2B? How do you account for the three point difference in scores?
The difference between 2A and 2B is that essay 2A provided evidence and explained in detail the rhetoric devices and how they were used effectively; 2B on the other hand simply just answered the prompt. 4. Explain the score received by the writer of 2C. Where do you think this writer might have missed an opportunity to craft a much stronger essay? Where are the opportunities for improvement?
I believe the writer could’ve crafted a much stronger essay if they thoroughly understood what the prompt was asking. It seemed as if they had an idea of what they were writing about but not enough understanding to go in to detail. 5. Based on your evaluation of the question, responses, and scoring commentary, what advice would you give to your classmates for approaching a question which requires an insightful analysis of satire?
I would advise my classmates to make sure you know what the prompt is asking,…...

A&F Case

...intentions of over-sexualizing young girls. Comments began pouring in decrying the company’s apparent lack of decency or sensitivity. All were asking the same question: “how soon is too sexy?” Did this controversy expose a company intent on objectifying young girls? Or is it another cog in the successful marketing wheel of one of the popular clothing retailers in America? Company Background Founded in 1892 as an elite outdoor clothing store, Abercrombie and Fitch, or A&F, was the brainchild of owners David T. Abercrombie and Ezra H. Fitch. In 1976, however, the company closed after filing for bankruptcy, but was revived soon after by Oshman’s Sporting Goods of Houston as a mail order retail store. Eventually, the company was sold again to The Limited in 1988 and then became a publicly owned company. Known for its preppy, “casual luxury” style, A&F finds great profitability in positioning itself as an up-scale, trendy clothing store for preteen, teenage and early adult. In addition to A&F and aberrombie, A&F also owns Hollister & Co., Gilly Hicks and Reuhl, all stores that cater to A&F’s primary market of teenagers and young adults. Marketing and Advertising A&F’s advertising style, while not unique in its use of sexuality, is recognizable in using nude or partially nude models in magazine and store displays. The still photography style is poignant, usually black and white and often features models in suggestive poses, which promotes its sensual style. The......

A&F Case

...was a fake one. Young generations nowadays are conscious of what they have and what things they don’t have, especially with apparel, because the trend nowadays is when you are wearing that kind of shirt and it is a high class brand, you’re in with the trend and you are considered one of the coolest kids in your school. While the organization culture of A&F is very different from other brands because they are the only company who hires people based on their looks and how they act and not with the skills. They are always saying that they don’t treat them as salespeople; they are the image that represents the brand. Their marketing strategy is very objective; they have these clear goals that they want to achieve. And their market sales are also getting higher thanks to those advertisements that they have. I can recommend that they need to have a clearer image for the brand; they need to be a good leader for the youth and an effective industry that has good means for the people and for their consumers who are all basically teenagers. So I suggest they change their way of advertising because this can also affect the market of A&F. IV. Situation Analysis: A. Environment 1. Economic Conditions and Trends The fashion industry is famous for a variety of retail channels such as specialty stores. Gap, American Eagle, J.Crew and Abercrombie & Fitch to name a few. In 2003, specialty stores accounted 28.5 percent of all retail sales. In 2005, Abercrombie & Fitch has been......

Critique of Ff Method

...(IBM, Hewlett Packard, etc.). The article is interesting in that it correlates what the company’s core business is and its performance during the periods they have identified. For example, one would not expect IBM to do as well during the wireless mobile period as a company like Hewlett-Packard, even though they are both information technology companies. Our text refers to the Fama & French (FF) studies applied to stock valuation as one of the methods. However, in searching out an article about these studies, it seems that their studies are used mostly in academia even thought it seems to have a good and practical application to stock portfolios. The FF studies point to three factors that the SML should have, which are the stock’s CAPM beta for measuring market risk, the size of the company as measured by market value equity and the equation that gives us the book to market ratio. This article indicates that the FF looks at the stock’s excess returns based on CAPM model. And, as there was little return during this time during several periods of the 10 year span, the FF provided the most useful during the bull periods, when there were actually returns to be had. The correlation between the companies are higher during the bull markets because fear is what drives the investors, for example, in post Y2K (when they thought the computers were going to die because of data inconsistency due to the year) and post September 11 (when there was a fear of additional......

F-Test

...Identify and apply appropriate statistical analysis: The statistical test that I decided to analyze was the F-Test. This test is used for comparing variances. The reason I chose this test was due to the fact that I am going to be using this same data on my term paper. I will be comparing runway incursions that took place between 2011 and 2012. The data from this group will be independent of each other. The F-Test can also be conducted with data that is unpaired. Data Collection: Techniques in data collection can be from the entire population, or it can be from sample data, which can be random or selected from the population. In the runway incursion F-test the data will be collected from the entire population. Review: The data that was collected for this test was taken from the FAA website, which gives runway incursion totals for each quarter. The given data is from the population. I have chosen the F-test because this will give us variance. Critique: There were a few other tests that could have been conducted, but the F-test was the one that would give me the best results. The T-Test would have been an option for me if I were comparing variance for a single sample. A second option would have been the Chi-test for independence, the problem with this test was I wasn’t testing for independence. I was testing for variance. The F-test was the best fit because I had more than one sample set that was independent from each other. Interpretation: This is where we......

Use the reference to create an appropriate APA-formatted, in-text citation. Aggressive driving is characterized by the tendency to view driving as a competition rather than as a means of getting from one place to another. Although most drivers are content to move along with the flow of traffic, aggressive drivers weave from lane to lane, seeking any advantage that will place them ahead of others. Aggressive drivers are also more likely to tailgate and honk the horn in an effort to intimidate other drivers or simply to move them along faster. When confronted with heavy traffic, aggressive drivers often engage in dangerous behavior such as passing on the right, using utility or turn lanes as driving lanes, and ignoring traffic signals. Paradoxically, aggressive drivers often pride themselves on their skill. They see other, more cautious drivers as the problem, not themselves. Reference: Arlov, P. (2007).
