The main concern of this work is to tackle manipulation in communicative events as one of the means used by politicians to achieve certain goals such as influencing the behavior, desire, belief and emotions of others to their self-interests without evident detection of their communicative intention. As a communicative event and from a pragmatic point of view, manipulation in the political field has not been given enough attention. Thus, this study scrutinizes the pragmatic aspects of manipulation in British and American political debates. As such, it sets itself the task of achieving several aims, the most important of which are: (1) specifying the pragmatic criterion/criteria according to whose presence a certain political debate is considered as manipulative, (2) identifying the manipulation types used by politicians and the pragmatic strategies via which each type is fulfilled, (3) exhibiting the whole pragmatic structure of manipulative, whether British or American, political debates, (4) pinpointing both the manipulative pragmatic strategies used to fulfill each sub-stage (component) and manipulative strategies adopted to attain all the sub-stages (components) of the entire pragmatic structure of manipulation, (5) highlighting the manipulative pragmatic strategies, the manipulative strategies, as well as the manipulation types highly resorted to by politicians in political debates, (6) showing transparent inter/intra-differences that can be detected in terms of the debater's employment of manipulation types, the whole pragmatic structure of manipulation, the manipulative pragmatic strategies, and the manipulative strategies used by the debaters, and (7) developing a pragmatic model for identifying the types of manipulation and the pragmatic strategies used to fulfill each type; in addition to another eclectic model to analyze the pragmatic structure and strategies of the data under scrutiny.

Weve all had guilty thoughts we would never dream about saying out loud. After all, our mothers always taught us that if we didnt have anything nice to say, we shouldnt say anything at all, right? Abbie Moore, a self-professed creator of her own naughty thoughts, shares a fun compilation of contemplations that gives us all hope that we are not the only ones who sometimes think, Yeah, we all know youre the boss; you dont have to keep reminding us! or When are you going to leave so I can go to bed? or Any chance of you paying your share of anything? Through her examples, Moore teaches others to embrace guilty thoughts in a light-hearted way, no matter whether we are the subjects or the ones pointing the finger. Thoughts You Should Not Feel Bad About shares an entertaining and humorous collection of guilty sentiments that may be more therapeutic than we ever imagined.
Commitment to Jesus is more than a name or Church attendance. Commitment begins with a transformation of our life style after we believe, repent and turn from our old self. There is a lack of commitment today in the lives of professing Christians. We'll study scripture and see how it relates to our daily life. The scripture still speaks to us today; if we only take the time to study and pray for God's voice to speak to our hearts. Just as Jesus was committed to you and me on that cross, likewise we need to be committed to Him in our lives.

This book is an attempt to lead the way through the moral maze that is our relationship with nonhuman animals. Written by an author with an established reputation in this field, the book takes the reader step by step through the main parameters of the debate, demonstrating at each turn the different positions adopted. In the second part of the book, the implications of holding each position for the ethical permissibility of what is done to animals - in laboratories, farms, the home and the wild - are explained. Garner starts by asking whether animals have any moral standing before moving on to assess exactly what degree of moral status ought to be accorded to them. It is suggested that whilst animals should not be granted the same moral status as humans, they are worthy of greater moral consideration than the orthodox animal welfare position allows. As a result, it is suggested that many of the ways we currently treat animals are morally illegitimate. In the final chapter, the issue of political praxis is tackled. How are reforms to the ways in which animals are treated to be achieved? This book suggests that currently dominant debates about insider status and direct action are less important than the question of agency. That is, the important question is not what is done to change the way animals are treated as much as whom is to be mobilised to join the cause. Students of philosophy, politics and environmental issues will find this an essential textbook.
