Central idea: The fast food industry grew affecting the life of small ranchers, corrupting the government, spreading diseases, causing and obesity epidemic putting lives in dangerous to increase their profits.

Outline: I. Introduction

Who is really paying for the hamburger that you ate in the fast food? Do you think that this hamburger just cost 3 dollars? Who is paying for the rest of your bill?
And I have more one question for you
How much is a human life worth? 480? That’s how much IBP (Mc Donald’s supplier) was fined for conditions in their plant that led to the death of several workers.

A. A lot of Americans resort to eating fast food because it has become one of the easiest ways to get food when we are in a hurry however do we now what we are eating? With the popularity of fast food chains increasing drastically in the past 15 to 20 years, people’s waistlines and health problems have also been increasing.

II. Body: A. First, I am going to show you why it is such a problem in America by showing you some facts about the impact of fast food in your body and your lifestyle you and from your kids.
1. According to Schlosser, the fast food industry has negatively changed the way Americans eat. Many busy Americans eat fast food on the go in their vehicles. They are too busy to prepare healthy foods at home. Pulling over on the side of the freeway after work is much easier than getting home and cooking from scratch. It's less time consuming and inexpensive. We are now suffering health issues that are taking lives in the United States, and we are sadly starting to teach our children to eat fast and cheap…...

...Thomas Dang Professor Decker English 1B 21 November 2012 Outline 1. Introduction: One of the biggest concerns in America in the past and in today’s time is what the required and appropriate drinking age should be in the United States. There has been statistics showing that the drinking has been lowered before and in that time period there were more accidents occurring more than when the drinking age were set at twenty-one. 1. Background: The twenty first amendment in 1933, it gave individual states to legalize, regulate, or prohibit alcohol which was known as repeal of prohibition. The repeal of prohibition act was what changed the drinking age to twenty-one to eighteen, not all fifty states lowered it but about over thirty states did. The act Mothers Against Drunk Driving was what set the drinking age back to twenty-one. 2. Argument: We should not lower the drinking age to eighteen because of the fact that the earlier the teenager get to drink the earlier they are risking their development of their brain and the health of their body. Not only that it affects their health but it also affects their academic in school and their safety while driving under the influence. a) Reason 1: Keep the drinking age at twenty-one because it keeps the highways and streets safer. b) Reason 2: A better chance in better academic progression, due to the fact that the brain still develops until the age of twenty-five. c) Young adults are more mature at the......

...Outline I. Introduction a. Working for my own money during my high school year’s felt great. b. Even though it did take time from my school work, I learned how to manage my time. c. Some people may think that having a job throughout your high school year may distract you and bring your grades down; I think otherwise, because it shows students responsibility, time management, and how they can save up for their future expenses. II. Responsibility a. Getting a job at a young age shows students responsibility because they learn how hard it is to work for their own money rather than someone giving them what they ask for. b. Being punctual is a huge responsible quality that students learn when they begin working. c. A responsibility of having a job helps students prioritize their time. III. Time management a. Time management is another responsible quality that students learn from because they learn how to multi- task and make the most out of their time. b. When having a job students tend to plan out what they have to do with their free time so they can complete any task that has to be done before their deadline. c. Learning how to manage time at an early age is important because the sooner students learn how to manage time the better, because by the time students leave for college they will know how to manage time.

The Outline

...The Outline Assignment Explanation: Before attempting to write a first draft, students should always create as detailed an outline as possible. This means you will have to think through your entire paper before you begin to write it. This is imperative given the required length of the Research Paper. Six to ten pages is not something you should try to intuitively write. If you try to “wing it” you will take much longer than you need to write the paper, and you will find it hard to keep on track. Your paper will feel disorganized and you will inevitably include irrelevant information. Here is the easiest pattern I can suggest for your papers: 1. You will need an introduction that introduces your topic, provides relevant background on your topic, and then transitions to your thesis statement. Your thesis should be a two-fold thesis statement. 2. In APA style, it is common to divide a research paper into different sections. These sections can be the arguments you make to prove your thesis. In English 101, you wrote five paragraph essays: an Introduction, three Body Paragraphs, and a Conclusion. The pattern was to have a thesis for which you made three arguments. Each argument was one of the three paragraphs. For English 102, simply take that pattern and expand it. What does that mean? If you have three main arguments to prove your thesis, each argument should be a section of the paper. The pattern is as follows: I. Introduction II. Section I ......

...an outline naturally organizes the information in a highly structured, logical manner, forming a skeleton of the textbook chapter or lecture subject that serves as an excellent study guide when preparing for tests. This method of note taking is extremely useful in most instances; however, in classes, such as math or chemistry, where a lot of formulas, graphs, or structures must be drawn, the outline method should be replaced with a better note-taking system. How to Use Write points in an organized manner based on space indentation. Place major points farthest to the left. Indent each more specific point farther to the right (level of importance is indicated by distance away from left margin). Advantages The outlining method emphasizes content as well as relationships between the material. Also, it reduces the time needed for editing and allows for easy reviewing. Disadvantages This method requires more thought for accurate, understandable organization and, therefore, cannot be used during lectures that move too quickly. Example How to study from an outline:    I. Read through one line at a time          A. Explain the information and connect the idea to others presented    II. Check the accuracy of the information    III. Add clue words          A. Jot down keywords or details that you didn’t originally include in the outline          B. Use these keywords to jog your memory when studying from the outline    IV. Recite information from the outline......

Paragraph 1: Show reasons why buying is better than renting. Things to consider when deciding what is better for you. Paragraph 2: Buying is cheaper than renting. Lower interest rates. Fixed mortgage rates. Paragraph 3: Show what you can not do when renting and things that can happen when renting. Things you cant do when renting. Why one decides to buy versus renting, many are scared to comment. Paragraph 4: Reasons why renting may be better for some people. Show examples of reasons of why. Conclusion: These are reasons why buying is better for most people. I sequence my paragraphs in this order, because it made the most sense to me. Starting with reasons why buying is better, why buying is cheaper than renting, things you can not do when renting, and there are some people who should not buy yet. Doing it this way insures my essay to have less mistakes and make more sense. I think this outline gives me a good start and will insurer I stay on topic and in sequence with the way they should be. Starting with reasons why buying is better than renting just seemed to be the way to start, and will keep the readers interest. This is very important when writing or the reader will not read your story. Showing the outline this way keeps the flow and the paragraphs will go good together. The last paragraph states...

...Paper 1 Outline and Notes The Selling of Joseph Thesis: During the age of Samuel Sewall, a time where both slavery and religion were prevalent aspects of an everyday society, Sewall outlined within a three page pamphlet titled “The Selling of Joseph”, the great differences between Sewall’s views, opinions, and even contradictions of natural rights as well as slavery, where he uses scripture and his own developed worldview pertaining to racism, and the general population’s. I. Sewall’s devotion to his religion and to the Bible is what backs his opinions and his view of slavery a. public positions address specific concerns about the rights of Native Americans and of African-Americans brought as slaves to the colonies b. “The Selling of Joseph” addresses his position on some of the inhumanities of his “fellow sons of Adam” c. His somewhat literal interpretation of the Bible is what leads him to his opinion about slaves d. What sets Sewall apart from other anti-slave sympathizers is his public opinion II. His views of natural rights can be contrasted to those of the early explorer Christopher Columbus e. Both exaggerated as most did during this time f. Sewall may have exaggerated in asserting that slave resistance had caused “many” to begin thinking about the value of maintaining the institution III. Sewall was a living contradiction in his beliefs g. He wrote the first anti-slavery piece of literary but was he......
