9 6 Health and Culture 1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 3. Africans drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 5. Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans. For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies: Conclusion?  What does a critical thinker decide

10 6b. Conclusion Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

11 7. What does a critical thinker consider? [kids and backpacks] Recent news sources have reported that backpacks with their heavy weight due to large books and security concerns limiting the use of lockers for schools has led to a large increase in accidents and back problems for k-12 students

12 7b. What a critical thinker considers? One follow up news report, page 2, reported that the real problem with backpack accidents when studied closer was not wearing the backpack but tripping over backpacks. Another later news report (USA Weekend 8/29, 03)that a University of Michigan Health System found that “the real culprit in back pain was kids’ being overweight and under- exercised.

13 8. An Old Riddle A man and his son are in an accident. The father is killed; the boy is rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. The surgeon comes into the operating room looks at the boy, and exclaims, “I can’t. That’s my son.” Who is the surgeon? c2 Our culture and related beliefs color our perceptions Chapter 2 Writing in diverse society.

14 (9) 0% Financing A Great Deal! What does a critical thinker think about this fantastic deal?

15 9b. The Real Price of 0% Financing Only 7% of new cars were financed at 0% in 04 Most dealers offer rebate or 0% financing—can’t get both Best interest deal is by getting pre approval for a loan from bank, credit union… From: Costco Connection Jan 2005

16 Jan. 25, 2002, Memo This reportedly led to the “matrix”, abusive, treatment of prisoners in Cuba and Iraq and the trails for Abu Ghraib Graner Prisoner Abuse Trial Graner Prisoner Abuse Trial What does a critical thinker think about this? Jan. 22, Prisoner abuse: What does a critical thinker think?

17 A morale dilemma, solders abide by the interpreted law, which can change, or broader human rights? Remember Nuremberg! Many legal experts say the “following orders” defense has not and will not work. Apparently the Justice department thought to revise and “clarify” the earlier memo. Dec. 30, b What does a critical thinker think?

18 11. Decisions Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision. Colin Powell c2

19 12. Politicians and Credibility THE BEST CONGRESS MONEY CAN BUY. (Based on records summer 2001,) 29 members of Congress have been accused of spouse abuse, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 19 have been accused of writing bad checks, 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses, 3 have been arrested for assault, 71 have credit reports so bad they can't qualify for a credit card, 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges, 8 have been arrested for shoplifting, 21 are current defendants in lawsuits In 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity. I don't have any problem with this, Politicians are supposed to represent the people? Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason. CT Question: (1) Does this sound reasonable? (2) What is the source?

20 13. CTand Pictures: Lebanon “This Reuters photograph [8/05/06 of the Israel bombing of Lebanon] shows blatant evidence of manipulation. Notice the repeating patterns in the smoke; this is almost certainly caused by using the Photoshop “clone” tool to add more smoke to the image. (Hat tip: Mike.)” rom_Beirut&only rom_Beirut&only

21 14. CTand Pictures: Dogs I was browsing around and found a really good example of pictures having a rhetorical effect on critical thinking, so I thought I'd pass it along. Here's the site: I originally heard about this through a myspace bulletin, which had several pictures like the one at the top of that website. Even thought the bill might well be misguided, that conclusion should not be reached solely by looking at the picture...

22 15. Backpacks: What does a critical thinker consider? Recent news sources have reported that backpacks with their heavy weight due to large books and security concerns limiting the use of lockers for schools has led to a large increase in accidents and back problems for k-12 students

23 What a critical thinker considers? One follow up news report, page 2, reported that the real problem with backpack accidents when studied closer was not wearing the backpack but tripping over backpacks. Another later news report (USA Weekend 8/29, 03)that a University of Michigan Health System found that “the real culprit in back pain was kids’ being overweight and under- exercised.

24 16. Republican Goals?

25 17. Political Credibility THE BEST CONGRESS MONEY CAN BUY. (Based on records summer 2001,) 29 members of Congress have been accused of spouse abuse, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 19 have been accused of writing bad checks, 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses, 3 have been arrested for assault, 71 have credit reports so bad they can't qualify for a credit card, 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges, 8 have been arrested for shoplifting, 21 are current defendants in lawsuits In 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity.
