Cell Phone Article

Cell Phone's
 
 
Pathos:
  •  "You were driving down the highway on a rainy day, when a driver loses control and slams right into you. After you are done spinning out, you reach for your cell phone; with the last amount of energy you have left to call 911."
  • " April 20th 1999, the awful Columbine High School Shooting. Two students opened fire on many innocent people that day. Frantic 911 calls were made. Dispatchers and parents were on the line with students using their cell phones to call out for help. Imagine the heart ache if you knew someone dear to you was in danger and you had no way to reach them."
Logos:
  • "They concluded that drivers that were using cell phones exhibited greater impairment than intoxicated drivers. So yes, cell phones DO pose potential threats."
Ethos:
  • "In a study published by the AEI-Brookings Joint Center, a team of researchers compared the effects of driving while talking on the phone and driving while drunk."
  • " Hilary Davis a journalist for The Rocky Mountain College paper says cell phones can save lives."
  • "Some, like Bruce Newman; an editor for an AAA magazine, say cell phones pose too much danger; especially on the roads."
  • "Chelsey Fortner was watching the news that catastrophic day. She didn't own a cell phone at the time, but this got her thinking. If she were in a similar situation, god forbid, wouldn't she want to reach out to her family too?"
