Speeches - Part 3
Have you ever got bored hearing the same matters over and over again at the annual elocution competition? Then why do not you come up with a compelling and exciting topic that the audience will be delighted to listen to? There are so many ideas in our world, that you have the opportunity to tell people something that they have never heard before. But keep in mind that you must know your subject perfectly, which will help you to deliver your speech confidently and persuasively. Also you need to realize that the main purpose of a persuasive speech is to help listeners make a decision about certain topic and to convince them to agree with you.
If you are afraid of public speaking, you’re not alone. Every year a lot of students are told to deliver a speech and most of them have no idea what topic to choose and how to get the attention of the listeners. Moreover, persuasive speech is one of the most interesting and difficult ones, as you need not only to tell the topic, but also to persuade the audience to follow you and agree with your views.
It is absolutely clear that any manifestation of racism bears most negative implications. However, with a closer look and no extra emotional compound, racism can merely be regarded as an idea of diversity, described in respective scientific works. Nevertheless, mentioning any of ethnic, social, political and ideological differences today potentially indicates morbid inequality, violent action, abuse speech, all sorts of prejudice, discrimination and oppression. The phenomenon of racism counts centuries of history, though it is declared to be actively fought against.

The theory of global warming, or “greenhouse effect” has been a popular bugaboo for many years and still is supported by the majority of scientific and political authorities all over the world. The main idea standing behind this term is that the average temperature over the globe gradually increases due to the anthropogenic reasons, most commonly considered to be the emission of “greenhouse gases” which unavoidably accompany industrial production.
It may sound pretentious, but computer games seem to gradually start behaving as if they were growing into something more, than simple entertainment. However, it is not the first time it happens – for example, theatre has grown out of folk festivals that had no goal other than entertaining their participants and onlookers, and cinema has evolved from primitive silent comedies into the whole great industry, differentiating from the popular films that are often not much more sophisticated than the first silent films to complex, multilayered art house works, making the viewer think and expecting him to do so.
Bermuda Triangle, or the Devil’s Triangle, is one of the most mysterious regions of the Earth. The patch of the Atlantic Ocean, allegedly triangular in shape, has been blamed for an unusual number of mysterious incidents, generally – disappearances and discoveries of ships deserted by their crews. There is a great many theories explaining it, ranging from unusual natural phenomena (e.g., magnetic abnormalities or uncharted oceanic streams) to gateways to parallel universes and activities of extraterrestrial creatures. Some people even state that it is one of the alleged Vile Vortices, twelve roughly evenly placed regions of the Earth characterized by paranormal happenings, the most well known being the Bermuda Triangle itself, and the Devil’s Sea near the coast of Japan. However, the majority of scientists state that the matter is very much exaggerated and the Triangle is no more mysterious than any other part of the World Ocean.
