The Pleasure to Burn
Imagine coming home from an enjoying night out on the town, slipping into your most comfortable/ elegant sleepwear, clicking on some good TV and enjoying the pleasure to burn. This ad for Camel cigarettes featuring a beautifully alluring woman seemingly enjoying her cigarette is appealing, but Why? And how do marketers know this will work? Camel cigarette advertisers are marketing through communication, using ethos to persuade their particular audience about products ideas and services that they are told that they need, without reguard to what the customer actually gets.
Advertisers are keeping customers coming back by marketing through communications, keeping the ever burning flames of human desire ignited. Once an advertiser has a target market/audience the task is then to create appeal. The most popular communications used are, billboards, commercials, and magazine and newspaper ads. The advertisers use ethos to portray an image of themselves to their unassuming customers. By keeping in touch with their current customers, advertisers can create ads that stay in its customers minds which can lead to repeat loyalty to that particular brand. This is called brand association. In this ad marketers are trying to imply that smoking Camel cigarettes will promote a relationship with this alluring half naked woman. These sorts of ads are misleading. Advertisers of these types of ads appeal to their audience by playing on their desire to look beautiful, act older and be sexier.
It doesn’t matter that smoking kills, image matters! The truth is, people use products to complete themselves and the companies that make these products know this. A company will use ethos to persuade the public that their product is what they need to make it. The bling bling of high priced commodities along…...

Burn to Revive

...Burn to Revive In New Mexico and Colorado firefighters are battling a roaring wildfire. In New Mexico 37 thousand acres has been destroyed. Colorado has lost 43 thousand acres and one person. (Coffman, 2012) These fires are prime examples of why prescribed burning is a must. These fires had all the ingredients to make a big problem. There was a drought/lighting, debris, and humid temperatures. Prescribed burning, controlled burning is a management tool. These small burns in forest-like areas reduce wildfire. (Prescribed, 2012) This is done by teams of firefighters or foresters, studying the weather and characteristics of the area. Once the team has a date set to burn, they ignite the fire against the wind and down a slope. (Prescribed, 2012) They do this so the fire is controllable. Once the team is finish, they look for smoldering signs and extinguish any spots. (Prescribed, 2012) Controlled forest fires are healthy for the environment by reducing wildfires, increasing wildlife/controlling pest, and improving access. Prescribed burns reduce wildfires because it reduces debris on the forest floor; one of the key ingredients for producing wildfires. When logging in the area is complete, the trucks leave wood chips behind. Add that to the vegetation that grows naturally and the dead leaves and trees that fall every year, it basically becomes a big fire pit waiting to be ignited with the perfect storm. There are two types of burning to reduce debris: under burning and slash...

Burn Injuries

... NUR2300: Burn Injuries Ali Almalki University: Date: Burn Injuries Burn injuries often have a significant impact on all aspects of the patient’s life, leaving them with a variety of psychosocial as well as physical handicaps. Extensive research evidence indicates that burn patients suffer profound social and psychological effects such as anxiety and depression, with long-term implications on the patient’s recovery and quality of life. Accordingly, it has been suggested that burn patients should undergo both long and short term systematic mental health care, in order to minimize and avert these psychopathological responses. Moreover, psychological interventions helps burn patients and staff to reduce burdensome as well as decline depressive symptoms. Notably, dissatisfaction tendencies with post-burn body image and appearance, have been pinpointed as a leading cause of psychological impacts, resulting to protracted recovery and impaired social life. According to Thombs et al. (2007) burn scars following a deep dermal injury are often cosmetically disfiguring and impel the scarred individual to deal with an alteration both in body image and appearance. The patient is also forced to adjust to significant impairments in motion and limitations of activities. However, according to Henry (2011), it is the disfigurement or change in appearance and body image that has a profound impact on the patient. Lau & Van Niekerk (2011) note...

Flash Burn

...Ariel Martin October 16, 2013 Descriptive narration Flash Burn My dad was set on fire when the car backfired. He was in the process of getting his Jeep fixed. On this particular day, the project of choice was working on the carburetor. The process was simple, he would pour gas into the carb well my boyfriend Mat would turn the key over. They must have done this at least a dozen times. The last time it all went wrong. My dad poured the gas and Mat turned the key. A loud bang like a gun shoot startled me, but I did not expect to turn my head to see the most devastating thing. I looked over to where the bang was there were flames coming from under the hood. The bottle of gas my dad was holding was on fire. He was unsure where my son was so he didn’t want to throw the bottle. Instead he tried to shake the bottle that’s when it all went wrong. The gas splashed his face then the flames; he hit the floor stop, drop and roll. It didn’t work as he hit the floor the bottle of gas fell and he rolled right into it. Now his chest is on fire, he realized it’s not working he stands up and rips his shirt off and starts hitting his head to put the flames out. The smell of burning flesh and hair was all we could smell. The sight was heart breaking when he turned around; the skin that was left on his face was hanging. From the time the fire started to when he looked me in the eyes and asked how he looked had only been about a minute and a half. That fast I had to look my dad in...

The Burn

...By reading this poem it’s noticeable that this is a Louisianan’s poem. Nearly all of Sheryl St. Germain’s poems represent Louisiana’s culture, but the piece that sticks out the most is Hot Sauce. Even though at first glance the poem Hot Sauce seems to be about hot sauce, upon further inspection there is an underlying theme within. The theme is that pain may eventually produce pleasure. The poem Hot Sauce reads as a free verse poem. There appears to be no rhyme scheme, nor any ordered length. It is arranged in chronological order in a sequence of events. Some images described in the poem are how repulsive and disgusting her mother’s eggs appeared with the hot sauce smothered all over them. In the reading, the taste of the hot sauce seems gruesome, but towards the end of the last stanza it seems to become bearable and even likeable. She compares the sticking out of her tongue, waiting for the hot sauce, to her memories of the priests at Communion. In the preceding sentence, the hot sauce is compared to the fiery gates of hell in Catholicism; this describes how unbearable the hot sauce is for her. Shakespeare said that there is nothing neither good nor bad, but thinking makes it so. In this case, the hot sauce represents the bad, but it is actually just her state of mind. This is proved in the conclusion of the poem when she begins to like the hot sauce. She changed her state of mind by finding joy in something that once repulsed her. Through this we see that......

...Nneka Osuagwu American Government August 13, 2014 Burn, Baby, Burnnnn I don’t believe flag-burning is a violation of any law, and correlates with the first amendment. The first amendment states that congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of a religion, abridging the right to freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of people to assemble and petition against the government. The Flag Protection Act was created in opposition to the first amendment, and violated our rights. The destruction of the flag is not to soil the good name of our nation, but to protest certain government policies. Some Americans may feel that flag-burning is disrespectful not only towards our country, but directly to them. They may start to feel offended, but the government cannot prohibit the expression of ideas or freedom of speech just because the ideas are a bit offensive. The first amendment clearly states that congress shall make no law abridging the right to freedom of speech or press. The government cannot diminish our rights the moment we do something they do not like. The amendments were created in order to guarantee basic rights to all Americans, rights that the government cannot take from us. The Flag Protection Act was created in order to strip us from one of our rights, which is very unconstitutional. The destruction of the flag by citizens of America is not done to tarnish the name of our country or to offend other citizens, it’s done to protest certain...

Burn Movie Review

...“If a man gives you freedom, it is not freedom. Freedom is something you, you alone, must take.” – This is probably the message of the movie Burn! Burn! – Movie Review By Chithra “If a man gives you freedom, it is not freedom. Freedom is something you, you alone, must take.” José Dolores a black slave, says this quietly, but shakes the ideals of so called civilized Europe. In this movie Burn (or Queimada), the director Gillo Pontecorvo presents a vivid picture of colonization, slavery, resistance and martyrdom for sovereignty; set in a fictional Portuguese colony. Movie, throughout its narration spreads out a strong anti-colonial message rooted on true meaning of the word “Freedom”. Marlon Brando did a brilliant work in the role of Sir William Walker, which he later mentioned in his biography as “I did some of my best acting in “Burn!”. Sir William Walker arrives at Queimada as a traveler but is a British Government agent with a task in hand to organize a slave uprising. British wanted this uprising to end Portuguese dominance and to have a say in the precious sugar cane trade. Walker chooses José Dolores, a black Bolivar, trains him to organize a revolt and succeeds to overthrow the Portuguese establishment from Queimada. British establish a corrupt puppet government, while Dolores is marginalized. While slavery had been formally ended and the former slaves in theory had rights; a legal and property system was...

What Gives You Pleasure

...“What gives you pleasure?” and “What makes you feel good?” Those are questions I don’t really often ask myself. It’s not like they are hard questions but to me in actuality they are. I always wonder with these types of questions if I am giving the right answer or if there is even a right answer. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer in general. The best answer is the one you give. We all have our own definition of pleasure and what makes us feel good. What brings me the most pleasure and makes me feel good first and foremost are my kids. I was told I would never be able to have kids, but God has blessed me with two beautiful girls. I enjoy all my time with them both. I guess you could also say that being a mom also brings me pleasure and makes me feel good. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else in the world. I never pictured myself the mother type but it suits me. Being a mom to my girls is something that brings me joy; makes my heart swell up with pride just knowing that I made those girls and they love me no matter what. Of course other things in this world bring me pleasure and make me feel good. Things such as friends and family, music, sweets like chocolate, and big bear hugs. I love having an intimate relationship with my best friend; it gives me no greater pleasure to know that I am sharing my life forever with him. I also enjoy jumping in my car and going for a ride with the windows down and music blasting, not a care in the world and nowhere to be. I......

The Pleasure Scale

...Tiffany Houpt Professor Habbestad English 104 2 December 2013 The Pleasure Scale As we go through life we will experience different events that will help shape the scales that we use in life. Biss talks about how pain is our own experience and no one else can feel the same intensity of pain that we feel at any given point in the day. I believe that it can also be turned around no one can feel the same type of pleasure that I feel. There is no way that I can write a scale of pleasure that fits every person that is on the earth; the only scale that I can make is one where I use the pleasure that have happened to me during my life time. As we age we tend to go through events that will change our outlook on life. Something that may have been a pleasure to us when we were younger may not be pleasure to use when we are older. Take for instance playing on the playground as a young child, that was to time of the day we all waited for we got to go outside and play on the jungle gym. That would not bring me pleasure it would make me depressed just for the fact that I can no longer play on the jungle gym because I am not small enough to enjoy to the level that I would want to. 0 Imagine a world where there is no such thing as pain. Now that you have done that do you think that there would be pleasure in that world? If there is no pain there can be no pleasure they go hand in hand. If you have never felt pain then how can you know what pleasure is? Biss talks about how there is...

Sadistic Pleasure

...Dyan Vaile Kellie Cannon ENG-112-06W June 3, 2015 A Sadistic Pleasure “The Tattooer” Junichiro Tanizaki The Story of “The Tattooer” by Junichiro Tanizaki is a colorful story enriched with non-sexual sadistic pleasure and is brought to life with his choice of words and the story line makes it not only sadistic but also extremely erotic and somewhat of a love story by the way he portrays pleasure in the form of sadism. This is all done through emotional and internal sensual gratification instead of sexual. It is about passion, desire, control, and power all found within one’s self. This story takes place in Japan in a time where wealthy men would go to extensive lengths to impress and attract the young women such as geishas. It was a time where young delicate women could control any willing man by simply letting him indulge in her beauty. Men would decorate their bodies with ink to show their masculinity to these young women in hopes they would be so inclined to have the woman give them a glimpse of her sweet tenderness. There was an exquisite tattooer in the village named Seikichi. Seikichi was a unique painter and tattooer. However, Seikichi did not accept just anyone seeking a tattoo, nor did he accept payment, for Seikichi’s payment was giving the tattoo itself. Seikichi deems to be a form of a sadist. His pleasure came from the pain the people on the other end of the needle endured. The author declares “His pleasure lay in the agony men felt...

... endurance, and also boosted the amount of brown fat. Because both muscle and brown fat burn calories, the researchers investigated energy expenditure in the mice and showed that ursolic acid-fed mice burned more calories than mice that didn't get the supplement. "Our study suggests that ursolic acid increases skeletal muscle and brown fat leading to increased calorie burning, which in turn protects against diet-induced obesity, pre-diabetes and fatty liver disease," Adams says. "Brown fat is beneficial and people are trying to figure out ways to increase it. At this point, we don't know how ursolic acid increases brown fat, or if it increases brown fat in healthy mice. And, most importantly, we don't know if ursolic acid will benefit people. Our next step is to determine if ursolic acid can help patients." The research was supported by funding from the Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center at the University of Iowa, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases of the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the University of Iowa Research Foundation....

Aristotle’s Account of Pleasure

...Aristotle’s Account of Pleasure We are a pleasure driven society always waiting to be amused. Self indulgence is a very natural aspect of human life. Does pleasure affect our lives? Will it make us happy at the end? Well, Aristotle will let us know what it means to be happy and have a good life in the Nicomachean Ethics. In the process, he reveals his own account of pleasure as well as other philosophers opposing views on the subject. The author highlights the key them by telling us that pleasure is not the chief good. However, it is an end in itself, which makes it good. In addition, pleasure is also not a process because it doesn’t involve any movement from incompleteness to completeness. According to Aristotle, happiness is known as the Greek word Eudemonia. It is the chief good which makes it an end in itself and is what we should all aim for. In the Ethics Aristotle is trying to unfold the opposed views of other philosophers. The first view is based on the principle that pleasure is good, whereas the second view is believed by some that pleasure is a negative concept. Philosophers such as Eudoxus, agree with the first view and argues that we all try to avoid pain instead desire pleasure therefore, pleasure must be good. It may not be the final good, but it is an end in itself. He also argues that when pleasure is added to any good, it makes it better. For example, to just temperate actions makes it worthy of choice, and that it is only by itself that...
