Transcript: C.A.R.D. Rhetorical Analysis Passage Passage Portia (Julius Caesar 2.1.300-311) Portia's argument with Brutus "If this were true, then should I know this secret. I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman that Lord Brutus took to wife: I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman well-reputed, Cato's daughter. Think you I am no stronger than my sex, Being so father's and so husbanded? Tell me your counsels, I will not disclose 'em: I have made strong proof of my constancy, Giving myself a voluntary wound Here, in the thigh: can I bear that with patience. And not my husband's secrets?" Anaphora Anaphora 1 definition; the repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of successive clauses. to begin her agruement she explains that she knows her current status and place as a women of her time and knows of the drawbacks that come along with it She repeats the phrase "I grant I am a women;but withal" to bring ephasisis on the fact that she acknowledges the social restrictions women have but follows up with and arguement using ethos If this were true, then should I know this secret. I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman that Lord Brutus took to wife: I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman well-reputed, Cato's daughter. Think you I am no stronger than my sex, Being so father's and so husbanded? Tell me your counsels, I will not disclose 'em: I have made strong proof of my constancy, Giving myself a voluntary wound Here, in the thigh: can I bear that with patience. And not my husband's secrets? Euphanism Euphanism 2 definition; a mild or indirect word or expression substituted for one considered to be too harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing. If this were true, then should I know this secret. I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman that Lord Brutus took to wife: I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman well-reputed, Cato's daughter. Think you I am no stronger than my sex, Being so father's and so husbanded? Tell me your counsels, I will not disclose 'em: I have made strong proof of my constancy, Giving myself a voluntary wound Here, in the thigh: can I bear that with patience. And not my husband's secrets? In a last attempt to pursuade Brutus to confide in her, Portia unveils her own secrete, where she self harms or body mutilates. Shakespear either to cushion his writing or to put the phrase in laymens term, substitutes the harsh words like mutilate with the word voluntary which does not have a direct negative connotation Synedoche+asyndeton Synedoche+Asyndenton 3 definition;a figure of speech in which a part is made to represent the whole or vice versa, Portia briefly represents the whole female population by using the phrases "my sex" as a way to skip over the explanation of the whole definition;the author purposely leaves out conjunctions in the sentence, while maintaining the grammatical accuracy of the phrase. At the end of Portias speech she creates an asyndenton when quickly explainin her last point in the argument. She skips conjuctions like by and and to to emphaisze the effect of harsh and rashness of her decisions. If this were true, then should I know this secret. I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman that Lord Brutus took to wife: I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman well-reputed, Cato's daughter. Think you I am no stronger than my sex, Being so father's and so husbanded? Tell me your counsels, I will not disclose 'em: I have made strong proof of my constancy, Giving myself a voluntary wound Here, in the thigh: can I bear that with patience. And not my husband's secrets? Pathos Pathos 4 definition; represents an appeal to the emotions of the audience, and elicits feelings that already reside in them In a small 3 line argument, Portia appeals to Pathos by trying to get Brutus to be empathetic towards his wife Since pathos is the emotional viewpoint of an agrument Portia not only uses guilt but also regret as the main feeling she is trying to inflict in Brutus If this were true, then should I know this secret. I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman that Lord Brutus took to wife: I grant I am a woman; but withal A woman well-reputed, Cato's daughter. Think you I am no stronger than my sex, Being so father's and so husbanded? Tell me your counsels, I will not disclose 'em: I have made strong proof of my constancy, Giving myself a voluntary wound Here, in the thigh: can I bear that with patience. And not my husband's secrets? Ethos Ethos 5 definition; an argument that appeals to the audience by emphasizing the speaker's credibility and authority As the last rhetorical device in this agrument, Portia uses Ethos to change Brutus internal and external conflict between himself and his wife. She reassures Brutus that she is worthy of knowing by using the credablility of himself and reputation of her birth family to convince Brutus that with a husband and father of such authority it must measure the strength of herself. If this were true, then should I know this secret. I

Credit Card Presentation

Transcript: My Credit Card Experiences The Importance of a Credit Rating The Final Week By: Becca Layman Starting Out Did I Qualify? The First Week Why Others Qualified for the Loan Even though I didn't qualify for the loan, other people did. Specifically, the two-income-no-kids scenario could more easily qualify for the loan. The scenarios with higher incomes and lower credit card balances could lower their balances quicker. Therefore, they could more easily qualify. Application to the Real World My scenario was the two income family with two children. My joint income was $2,500 My monthly expenses were $2,300 I had $200 left over for my credit payments and weekly events. Just when I thought everything was going great, I realized that I put the wrong number in the the "cash" column around week 4, so I didn't have nearly as much money as I thought I had. Luckily, I made small enough payments to have a little bit of money left over, so I didn't have to restart or anything. In the end, I only had $86 more in my balance than I started with, which comes to a $1,586 balance in the end. These weeks were fairly slow going, and gave me some time to attempt to pay off some of my balance. I only bought the cheapest weekly items: hair dyers, going bowling, and a Barbie. I put them on my credit card unless I didn't have enough cash to pay for the weekly event. This was to keep my balance from getting overboard. I did not qualify for the loan. A teeny tiny bit more than 50% of my income went into payments, which is 10% more than the required amount to qualify. Even though my item wasn't much more expensive than $2,000, I still didn't qualify. The Middle Weeks This was by far the hardest week. I only had $200 to spare after my monthly payments, and my weekly event cost me those $200. I had to put that on my credit card, which increased my balance considerably. On top of that, we had just started the project, so it took me a pretty long time to get the hang of things. A credit rating is important because: It allows you to see if you can apply for a loan It allows you to qualify for mortgage payments It allows you to see if you even qualify for a credit card. This is one of the most useful projects I've ever done. It actually taught me that if I let my credit balanced get out of hand, I'll have many financial troubles later on in life. If I can't lower my balance, I can't get any loans, so I learned that I need to e very careful later on in life to not get a horrible credit rating.
