By the year 1763, the relationship between the US colonies and Britain was strained at best. The people of America began to increasingly see themselves as independent people. During this time period, the British tried desperately to hold onto their investments in North America. They enforced new restrictions and taxes meant to subdue the restless colonies, who responded with new values and ideals that led to the eventually separation from Britain. By 1763, Britain had enforced several taxes in hopes of bringing the colonies back under their full control. This turned about to be a big mistake as it just encouraged the colonists to renew their struggle for complete independence. Around the same time, the French Indian war was coming to a close, and Britain was struggling with money. Both the Sugar and Stamp Acts were passed by Britain’s government, leading to higher taxes on sugar, molasses, and paper products. During this time the Sons and Daughters of Liberty were formed and began the motions for an independent nation. Another act was eventually passed that pushed the tension to a breaking point. The Tea Act led to the call towards revolution. All in all, the British plan to gain control of the colonies again through various taxes didn’t work; instead, it managed to further alienate the colonies from England and its allies. Further restrictions were also placed on the colonists in order to regain British control. An example of this is the Proclamation of 1763, which prevented colonists from moving west of the Appalachian Mountains. Another enforcement of the British was the Quartering Act, which had colonists housing British soldiers against their will. Americans slowly began losing their rights to the British rule. People were sick of having to bow down fully to the British crown. They began to shape their values towards independence, freedom, and equality. This led to a call to
accustomed to American pop culture and its icons. Atwood writes, “When you were finished with Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse, you could always go on to Superman” (80). American comedian and radio personality, Jack Benny, spread his voice all the way to Canada so that they could tune in and enjoy their Sunday evening entertainment the same way Americans were accustomed to doing. When Atwood was growing up, she explains how television did not exist and instead, “There were, however, comic books,…
Increasing tree and vegetative cover
Installing green roofs (also called "rooftop gardens" or "eco-roofs")
Installing cool—mainly reflective—roofs
Using cool pavements
I aim to use all of these strategies in my neighbourhood, starting with trees and vegetation. Trees and vegetation will help reduce the urban heat island by blocking some of the sunlight which will cool the air and surface making the temperatures drop. Trees and vegetation are most useful as a mitigation strategy when planted…
that cigarettes are cool, un-harmful, and something that can make you happy.
When I first looked at this ad I thought the most obvious part about it was that it is persuading you to smoke their brand of cigarettes because it is cool. “So good, it’s got to be KOOL!” is written in big green letters across the ad. In my opinion KOOL is trying to tell us that smoking their brand of cigarettes can make you cool. Newsflash, just because you smoke cigarettes does not make you cool. I also thought this…

“He had a style like the players from St. Louis, singing sound, and he didn't play too many notes or play those real fast tempos” (Davis 1989: 62). From Miles Davis’ autobiography, it is clear that he heard a style that was much slower than the bop he was playing alongside Bird and Dizzy. He much rather preferred this style which became known as cool. Talking…
this character. I don’t really know what Jerry is going to be like at the end of the book.
I like the character Brenda. She shows her real personality. Brenda is fun to read about .I like how she tries help Jerry. She makes obvious that something is cool to help Jerry. Like when a boy named Gabe walked by she said something like “Look at that hair” making it clear that Jerry should try something like that. I think Brenda is very helpful.

In alabama its "cool" to dress "frat" when you go school.
Southern marsh, southern tide, covey and paddle, cole haans, vineyard vines, you see it as cool i see it as a sign of broken times, its a need to fit in. I feel the need to fit mine. To fit in to me. The only persons opinion who truly matters is mine.

The cigarette advertisement is trying to manipulate the audience to think cigarettes are cool and if you smoke them you will become popular.
Manipulation and persuasion can go hand in hand sometimes and are difficult to tell the differences between the two sometimes. When trying to manipulate someone you’re trying to influence them or…
