In my personal life, I like to thinking critically about news published by social medias because the media today usually focused on profit maximization instead of the society benefit. I reckon critical thinking as the process of analyzing a text towards in a conclusion based on an in formed interpretation. Critical thinking helps me to identify the fact and question the credibility of the context stated, in this way I can spot any weak statements and to further expand my knowledge in a certain field. I remember in the case of Michael Jackson conducting sexual abuse on children which terribly damaged his personal image and career. In fact, the truth is those children were bribed with money and the whole incident is deviated from the truth. For such famous celebrity like Michael Jackson, the negative impact of the slander is beyond imagination. As well as the article “Uk Police Inquiry Broadens to Sydney” narrates a woman named Lauren Martell who told the Scotland Yard police about an past sexual assault that involves Rolf Harris, the Australian Musician who lived in London. She claimed that at her age of 19, 20, she traveled to London and witnessed Harris in a toilet at a recording studio conducting sexual abuse. To me, the whole article is meaningless and it is offensive and misleading. Obviously, the claims made against Harris are not convincible as the evidence provided are not adequate enough to prove his guiltiness. Despite the presentation of the case of British television entertainer Jimmy Savile’s sexual assault, it is still unreasonable as it is entirely unrelated to Harris. I understandable that the writer thought such offensive behavior would not be tolerated and that everything would be done to bring the criminals to justice. But it is inappropriate to write something with uncleared statements and unstructured layout just to

Acquire- After reading Paradigms of Interdependence out of Coveys book, there was one area that caught my eye. The idea that caught my eye was one of the 6 deposits. The deposit that I needed to evaluate is Keeping Commitments. Keeping commitments are very important because if you break commitments people will not value or trust you. Every time you say something you will be discredited. One…
Test Prep Journal Entry
I’ve noticed there are many significant differences between a college-level English course and a high-school level English course. A college-level course requires spending a lot more time reading, analyzing pieces, and writing.
Being in a college-level course demands you to read rigorous amounts. In other words, I need to take my time instead of rushing. Trying to get things done fast in AP English is not a achievement, it’s to understand the pieces and know exactly what…

I remember the plane crash, it was sudden and quick, the plane was going out of control, I was nervous, we was screaming and crying and praying that we all wouldn’t die. When I woke up I was in these scratchy and itchy bushes. There was a fair haired boy who landed close to me who I became friends with. He said that his name was Ralph, I told him that my name was Piggy, he started to chuckle. “Piggy!” he said, I told him if there were any other kids on this island, not to…
English Writing 302

Ackerman writes on page 301 that we can “never leave the palace of our perceptions.” If our sensory experiences are experiences in the brain, what case can we make for our bodies? Also, are our experiences illusions?
The brain is the center of all activity we sense and experience. Without our brain, we wouldn't be able to process and take in the sensory information from the world around us. However…

Man’s Worst Enemy
Abraham Lincoln describes the tragic truth of human nature in his quote, “America will never be
destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed
ourselves”. This indeed is true. The truth is that man’s worst enemy is themselves. This can be applied
to the country as well as human nature. The United States is possible of destroying itself and losing…
