Isn't it Ironic?
Is it ironic that I posted a video about how boring and useless Facebook is on Facebook?
Is it ironic that someone steps into a puddle and you make fun of them… and the next thing you know – YOU step in one!?
The waitress expresses gratitude
when she intends the opposite
Lawrence expresses the idea that the lemonade is priced fairly, when in fact the opposite is true
One might expect that Eminem, a renouned potty-mouth, would curse in his own home, when in fact the opposite is true.
One might expect that the building inspector would have a safe home, when in fact the opposite was true.
Reader's know that Lucy doesn't like Tom, but Tom believes the opposite.
Tom believes he will continue working, but the reader knows that the opposite is true.
She really doesn't like Nikki's skirt; even though, her tone and word choice lead Nikki to believe otherwise.

is burned
to the ground.
A tow truck
has
broken down
Bo Burnham is a stand up comic that always sits and slouches.

Group Directions:
In groups of three, analyze each passage to determine what type of irony is used.
Justify your answers with specific evidence.
Choose the best word to illustrate the mood.
A mean old man ate a large meal at a restaurant. The waitress tried to provide him with excellent service, but every time she brought him a dish, he complained. First he thought that the soup was too cold when it was hot. Then he said that his steak was dry and chewy, when it was moist and succulent. Then he complained that one of her blonde hairs was in his mashed potatoes, but the hair was actually grey like his own. She remained patient and continued to try to help him until the end of the meal, when he left her a quarter for a tip. She replied on his way out, “Thank you for the generous tip, Mister.”
What type of Irony?
Tom has always liked Lucy, but Lucy has always thought Tom was annoying and unattractive. One day, Lucy comes home to find an eviction notice on her door. Apparently, her roommate had been spending the rent money that Lucy was giving her on other things. Lucy only has 24 hours to get all her stuff over to her mom’s house, and Lucy doesn’t even have a car. But Tom has a truck. So Lucy calls up Tom and asks him how he’s doing. She tells him that she’s always thought he was funny, and that they should hang out sometime. Tom thinks that Lucy has finally come around is beginning to like her. He also thinks that his jokes are funny because she is laughing after everything that he says.
The rapper Eminem is well-known for his song writing ability, but he is equally known for his shockingly profane and obscene lyrical content. Eminem has made a fortune selling his curse filled songs to millions of children around the world. But, on a 60 Minutes interview, Eminem claimed that there was no swearing in his own home and that his children were not allowed to play music with curse words, including his own tracks.
When Lawrence saw the posters for the circus hanging on the bulletin board, as he swept up the trimmings at Slim’s Barbershop, he knew he would be taking his little cousins. They loved animals, and he was looking forward to seeing the smiles on their faces as the circus performers amazed them with their stunts. But sweeping up hair clippings didn’t pay a whole lot. Lawrence spent 45 dollars just getting tickets. But it was worth it to see his cousins’ faces. The day finally came and everyone was excited as they walked into that big circus tent. But Lawrence soon realized that he and his cousins would be thirsty and hungry. As they sat in their seats, the drink vendor walked by selling beverages. Desperately thirsty, Lawrence asked him how much a lemonade would cost, and the drink vendor said, “Eleven dollars each.” Lawrence replied, “Oh, that’s it? Just eleven dollars? What a great deal for one cup of lemonade. That’s totally worth it.” The drink vendor walked away.
Mr. Reinhart is the building inspector for the entire county. Anytime a person wants to add a permanent structure to their home or property, such as a deck or balcony, the building plans need to be approved by Mr. Reinhart before construction can begin. Mr. Reinhart checks to see that each plan is safe before construction begins. Once building begins, he checks to see that construction is going according to the plan. In a way, he is responsible for ensuring that every structure in the county is built properly. One day Mr. Reinhart was having a party at his house. He and his three guests were barbequing on the porch attached to his house, when the structure suddenly collapsed. Apparently, termites got into the wood and had been chewing away the support beams for several months.
Mr. Bath is the president of Make-A-Bath Industries, a small company that employs fifteen workers, including Tom Miller, father of six. Ever since the economy went down the tubes, Make-A-Bath hasn’t been selling bath tubs like they once did, and now Mr. Bath has to fire three workers, one of whom will be Tom Miller. But Mr. Bath has never fired anyone before, so he has been delaying giving Tom and the other employees the bad news. But Christmas is approaching. Tom wants to buy nice gifts for his six children, but he doesn’t have any money. So Tom charges a whole bunch of nice gifts on his credit card, figuring that he can pay it back with money from his checks that he will be getting from his job all year. Tom and his family don’t have a lot of extra money to spend, so he likes to get his kids nice Christmas presents. Tom is looking forward to one of the best Christmases ever.

American's purchases nearly 600 million pounds of candy a year for Halloween. What does that look like. Imagine 16 billion fun size snickers bars or 158 trillion individual Candy Corns. A whopping 90 million pounds of chalkolate candy is sold during Halloween weak taking a strong lead compared to other holidays. Almost 65 million pounds are sold during the week leading up to easter and only 48 million pounds during valentine's week. Really, how can they compete. Halloween is the only time of year where the sweet stuff is given away by the handfuls and left in bowls on people's doorsteps free for the taking.
At first glance, the Mexican custom of El Día de los Muertos the Day of the Dead may sound much like the
U S custom of halloween. After all, the celebration traditionally starts at midnight the night of Oct. 31 and the festivities are abundant in images related to death.

The customs have different origins, and their attitudes toward death is different: In the typical Halloween festivities death is something to be feared; on the other hand in El Día de los Muertos, death or at least the memories of those who have died is something to be celebrated.
Since its inception Halloween seems to be among the most controversial subjects for religious groups. Some argue that it is just a normal day while others claim its a day of the Devil.
The Christian Post spoke to a few pastor's for them to weigh in on the holiday which has a storied and complicated past. It is important to note that although the day has its roots in pagan origins the actual name Halloween comes from All Hallows Eve which is the day before All Saints Day or All Hallows Day a Catholic holy day that remembers the dead saints and those who have died for their faith.

Reading for pleasure is a waste of time. People who spend hour upon hour reading don't get to live in the real world. They don't really learn anything that is useful about how to deal with everyday people and problems.

I have learned a lot without reading, and I am sure everyone else has too.

It's a dangerous
over-simplification
to believe that some people are
innately
‘good’ while others are
innately
‘evil’ or ‘bad.’ This misleading concept underpins the justice system of many countries - ‘bad’ people commit crimes, and since they are
intrinsically
‘bad’, they should be locked away so that they can’t harm us with their ‘evil’ behavior.
This concept has also fueled many wars and conflicts
in history. In war, either opponent is fighting, in their belief, for a just cause against an ‘evil’ enemy, and once the ‘evil’ people have been eliminated, peace and goodness will
reign
supreme.

Human nature is infinitely more complex than this
, of course.

The Real Meaning of 'Good' and 'Evil'

Independent Reading


‘Good’ means a lack of self-centredness. It means the ability to empathise with other people, to feel compassion for them, and to put their needs before your own. It means, if necessary, sacrificing your own well-being for the sake of others’. It means benevolence,altruism and selflessness, and self-sacrifice towards a greater cause - all qualities which stem from a sense of empathy. It means being able to see beyond the superficial difference of race, gender or nationality and relate to a common human essence beneath them.

All of the ‘saintly’ people in human history have these qualities in abundance. Think of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, risking their own safety and well-being for the goal of gaining equal rights and freedom for Indians and African Americans.These were human beings with an exceptional degree of empathy and compassion, which overrode any concern for their own ambitions or well-being.

‘Evil’ people are those who are unable to empathise with others. As a result, their own needs and desires are of paramount importance. More commonly are they selfish, self-absorbed and narcissistic. In fact, other people only have value for them to the extent that they can help them satisfy their own desires, or to which they can exploit them. This applies to dictators like Stalin and Hitler, and to serial killers and rapists - I would argue that their primary, common characteristic is an inability to empathise with others. In most cases, they can’t sense other people’s emotions or their suffering, can’t see the world from other people’s perspective, have no sense of their rights. Other human beings are just objects to them, which is what makes their brutality and cruelty possible.

What do we really mean when we use these simplistic terms, ‘good’ and ‘evil’?

Requiring all students to wear the same cardigans, slacks or skirts is a practice employed throughout history and all over the world. England, for example, even required uniforms in all public schools for a time. Recently, it seems American schools desperate for peace and order are willing to follow this trend in order to get their students on the right track. Present statistics in the Long Beach district seem to support the claim that the clothes students wear can affect the crime rate. Now, three years later, many districts have followed suit with public schools in Chicago, Dallas, Sacramento, Phoenix, Seattle, Kansas City, Memphis, Baltimore and Atlanta all making the jump to mandatory uniforms. Uniforms may be a part of the solution, but they are not the only way to improve schools.

It is often feared that basing medical end-of-life decisions on patient consent may lead to abuse, since many terminally ill patients are depressed, and therefore unable to make sound decisions on matters of such significance. Although such patients may have a greater tendency to depression, we cannot justifiably assume all patients are depressed, or that depression, even when present, prevents a patient from consenting in a balanced and acceptable way. Depression is generally manageable nowadays, and medical diagnosis can determine when a person is incapable of making such a decision. Therefore, the issue of depression should be dealt with on a case by case basis, and not be a reason for prohibiting choice in general.
The Article
Argument
The primary focus in medical end-of-life decisions should be on patient consent, rather than doctor intention, because it is not a breach against a patient's rights if s/he consents to the termination of their life.
Counter-argument
Terminally ill patients are likely to be depressed, and therefore unable to consent to their hastened death in a balanced or acceptable way.
Response to
counter-argument
Depression can be managed. The relevance of depression must be made on a case-by-case basis. Depression does not warrant a general rule prohibiting patients from consenting to a hastened death.

Edward Murphy was a member of an Air Force team that performed complicated experiments during the 1940s his work required much preparation and perfect execution. Murphy has become renowned for “Murphys’ Law,” which states that “if anything can go wrong it will.” This somewhat funny observation has spawned a plethora of corrollaries, such as Hofstadter’s Law: “It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take Hofstadter's Law into account.” These smart comments on the perceived perversity of daily life have been published in several books. Some of the volumes are general in scope; some pertain to technical careers in aerospace or professional areas such as medicine or law.

In the state of Illinois on October 8, 1871, one of the most infamous events in the city of Chicago's history began: The Chicago Fire. The Chicago Fire of 1871 had such an enormous impact on the city that one of the four stars on the city's official flag stands for this event.

No one is certain what caused the fire, which burned for several days. Most historians believed the fire started in a barn owned by a Mrs. O'Keary. It is thought that perhaps a cow may have started the spark that led to the burning of Chicago by kicking over a lantern located in the barn. Regardless of the source, the damage from the fire was widespread. Fire destroyed four square miles of the city and cost more than 300 people their lives. Another 100,000 people lost their homes.

Determination of the citizens of Chicago to rebuild eventually saved their beloved city. Within four years, the people had rebuilt much of what was destroyed by the fire. Today, the city has overcome its bleak past, but no one will ever forget the disaster of 1871.
What was the author's purpose?



What personal quality did the citizens who survived the fire of 1871 need to successfully rebuild their city?



Why does the author mention the star on Chicago's flag?

a) to entertain
b) to persuade
c) to inform
d) to explain
a) weakness
b) imagination
c) creativity
d) determination
a) To explain why the flag has four stars.
b) To confirm that the fourth star has more significance.

c) Citizens needed to know thee source of the fire to avoid repeating the same mistakes.

The Galveston Hurricane

Coastal towns are changed forever when hurricane winds strike. On September 8, 1900, the citizens of Galveston, Texas, found out how true this would be for them. The city was ravaged by winds that reached nearly 130 miles per hour. Unlike today's world, where weather stations are often able to give warnings about impending hurricanes, leaving people time to prepare for upcoming storms, those living in the 1900s had no way of knowing the magnitude of what was about to happen.

When the storm was over, one-sixth of Galveston's population-approximately 10,00 people-was gone.

The death toll was staggering, but especially sad were the deaths of many children. At St. Mary's orphanage in Galveston, all but three of the children living there was reported to have perished that day.

Thousands were left homeless after the hurricane. Volunteer agencies such as the Red Cross rushed to help those in need. Through the caring of others and the help of its citizens, Galveston managed to rebuild; however, those who survived the hurricane would be forever changed by what had occurred.

b. the first paragraph
c. the second paragraph
d. the third paragraph

5. Which would be the best source to learn about other hurricanes that have happened in Texas?

Imagine day turned into night. The world is so covered in a thick, blinding dust that all sunlight is blocked out from view. Everyone around you is running from the cloud of dust that will suffocate its victims with a blanket of dust, Think it couldn't happen? Think again.

In the United States during the 1930s, an area in the middle of the country became known as the Dust Bowl. Huge dust storms ravaged areas in the states of Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, and New Mexico. The dust storms were mainly caused by a lack of planning on the part of those who continuously farmed the areas of land and a series of droughts that swept through the ravaged farmlands. The loose soil easily succumbed to the strong winds ready to sweep the land in huge clouds across the already suffering Midwestern states.

The environmental disaster caused over three million people to leave their homes in the Great Plains area. Those leaving hoped to find food, shelter, and a new way of life for their families by moving out West. Although some did find new homes, sadly, many of those people hoping for a better life were often forced to take whatever jobs they could find just to survive. People in other areas did not often treat the immigrants with kindness believing the flux of people in their own lands would cause overcrowding and hardships for their own families. However, the Dust Bowl did have at least one positive effect on agriculture: people learned to implement farming practices that would save the soil and save the settlers of the Great Plains from facing such an economic disaster of such magnitude ever again.
