Specific Purpose: To discuss about the conversation between Laertes and Ophelia Central Idea: The scene is about Laertes is giving Ophelia advice with some ambiguous phrase  that spoken by him, and he reminds her again before he leaves. Introduction [I.] From the SPT 1113 “List of topics about Hamlet”, I chose topic 4. [A.] The topic is for me to discuss the conversation between the brother and sister. [B.] The topic is a first part from Scene 3 of Act I. [II.] Based on the play Hamlet: Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare, Laertes, Ophelia, and Polonius are the main characters of this scene. [A.] The scene takes place at Polonius’s Chamber before Laertes prepares to return to  Paris for going back to school. [B.] I will discuss about the conversation between Laertes and Ophelia. Body [I.] The British Broadcasting Corporation’s production of Hamlet, directed by Rodney  Bennett, opens the scene with Laertes is taking his leave of his sister, Ophelia. [A.] In the course of their farewells, Laertes advises Ophelia about her relationship  with Hamlet. [B.] Since Ophelia has been spending much of her time lately with Hamlet, her brother warns her to stay away from him.  [C.] He suggests that she should forget Prince Hamlet because he is in higher rank  than her and is too much to hope for a husband. [D.] Laertes also tells Ophelia that she should protect her heart, her honor and her  chastity [II.] In the book Hamlet by William Shakespeare, edited by Barbara A. Mowat and Paul  Werstine, they point out some ambiguous phrases that spoken by Laertes in the conversation  with Ophelia. [A.] Mowat and Paul states that Shakespeare has used the blank verse in Laertes’s  speech to emphasize for his advice. [B.] In my perspective, Laertes is kind of person that does not concern about feelings. [1.]  He talks to his sister without any awareness or consideration. [2.] When he talks about Hamlet, he explains that, to Hamlet, Ophelia can  never be anything more than a plaything. [3.] He would rather tell the ugly truth than see her getting hurt. [C.] Shakespeare has used the phrase “The perfume and suppliance of a minute” [1.] It originally means the perfume which lasts only for a minute. [2.] However, I think Laertes implies Ophelia that she could be easily faded as  same as the perfume. [III.] Finally, the latter scene when Laertes is about to leave, he reminds Ophelia again about  his directive.  [A.] We could see that Laertes really wants his sister to remember well what he has  said because he thinks that she did not listen carefully [1.] Since in the early part, Ophelia has a joke on her brother and tells Laertes  to refrain from lecturing her on how to behave while ignoring his own advice. [2.] That’s why he needs to remind her about that. [B.] Shakespeare uses the phrase ‘Tis in my memory locked, And you yourshelf shall  keep the key of it’ as a reply of Ophelia to her brother. [1.] Ophelia assures Laertes that she will follow his advice with an image that  implies that she is handing him the key to her mind and memory [2.] In my opinion, this phrase is a nice response and more trustable to her  brother’s concerns. [3.] We could see that Ophelia shows how obedient and respectful she is to her brother. Conclusion [I.] In general, I see the beginning from Scene III of Act 1of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark is  about the conversation between Laertes and Ophelia. [A.] Laertes tells Ophelia that she should concern about her relationship with Hamlet  and tells her to forget him. [B.] Also, there are some phrase in Laertes’s speech with implicit messages to  Ophelia. [II.] For me, this scene demonstrates that Laertes really worries for his sister.   [A.] I like this scene because of the way Laertes cares of his sister and the love  between family members, they will tell you the truth even if it is bad to prevent you getting hurt. [B.] I hope everyone enjoyed it. Specific Purpose: To commemorate the grateful classical composer, Antonio Vivaldi Central Idea: I will inform his early life, his career, and his famous piece. Introduction I. The piece you are hearing is "La primavera” from “The Four Seasons” A. This is one of the compositions that will come to my mind when Antonio Vivaldi  is mentioned. B. According to Antonio Vivaldi’s biography from Encyclopedia website, The Four  Seassons is wrote from around 1717 to 1721 II. From the textbook Music: An Appreciation by Roger Kamien says that Vivaldi was a  towering figure of the late Italian Baroque A. I personally enjoy listening to Vivaldi’s music. B. It is my pleasure and privilege to commemorate the classical European composer  Antonio Vivaldi. Body I. The Encyclopedia website said that the famous composer was born on March 4, 1678 in  Venice, Italy. A. The website also points out that Vivaldi learnt how to play violin at very young  age from his father, Giovanni Battista Vivaldi 1. His father was a professional violinist, and taught not only Antonio but all  of his son 2. By following his father, Vivaldi was able to meet some of the most well­ known musicians in Venice. B. The Biography website also points out that although Vivaldi was an exceptional  violinist he cannot play any wind instruments because he had breathing problem C. The article Vivaldi Antonio: 1678­1741 by Wendy Heller and Mark Kroll, said  the problem was most likely broke his asthma, and this illness prevented him from become a  priest. D. He was ordained Priest in 1703 when he was 25 years old and because of his red  hair, he was known as “il Prete Rosso” 1. The article explains that the phrase means "the Red Priest." 2. He got this name because he actually got red hair from his father.  II. Now, I’m going to tell you some about Vivaldi’s early career A. The Encyclopedia World Biography website shows that in the Fall 1703, Vivaldi  accepted his first job as a violin teacher at Ospedale della Pietà in Venice. 1. According to the book Music: An Appreciation, Ospedale was an  institution where orphans received instruction ­­ the boys in trades and the girls in music. B. A few years later he became a conductor of the all­girl orchestra at the same  institution  1. The books said he composed most of his works during this time,  specifically for the orchestra 2. The Encyclopedia World Biography website points out that under  Vivaldi’s leadership, the orchestra had many amazing concertos and gained an international  reputation C. He was not only teaching but he also traveled to many places and worked for a  number different people. 1. According to the Biography website, he accepted a number of short­term  positions in Mantua and Rome. 2.  Mantua is actually where he wrote The Four Seasons. 3. The Biography website also said that he had job in the foreign royal  family such as King Louis XV. 4. Vivaldi wrote a specific piece just for King Louis’s wedding.  III. The textbook states that Vivaldi composed over 450 concertos but his most widely  known concerto is "La primavera” from “The Four Seasons” A. I’ve learnt from the textbook that The Four Seasons is program music composed  for four concertos: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter 1. The textbook defines program music as instrumental music associated  with story, poem, idea, or sin. 2. Each concerto in the piece is associated with different season B. I will go along with the images and idea of the Spring season. 1. Wendy and Mark says that Spring has 3 movements: fast, slow, and fast.  2. Spring was the most famous concerto not only in our time but in his time  also 3. Music: An Appreciation tells the story that King Louis XV wants his  violinist to play Spring, because Spring was also the favorite piece of King Louis XV and  although the solo violinist did not have the orchestra to back him up, the piece was still  performed beautifully Conclusion I. In conclusion, Antonio Vivaldi was the most talented Baroque violinist composer and  teacher 1. His pieces were played all of Europe and still continue to be played until today 2. Vivaldi never needs to be forgotten  II. Although his music was forgotten for a while after his death on July 28, 1741, he still had a huge impact on music 1. For me, Vivaldi has changed my perspective in music. 2. I hope my commemorative has inspired each of you to have a greater awareness and appreciation for Vivaldi’s music. Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to use Snapchat safely Central Idea: I want to persuade the risks of Snapchat and people should use Snapchat safely. Introduction I. From the SPT­1113 “Audience Analysis”, 100% of respondents know Snapchat and 90% have Snapchat on their phone. A. Snapchat is one of social media platform and is the most popular besides Twitter  and Facebook. B. Snapchat is an app where you can take pictures, put everything on it, attaches  draw then send it and person who receive it only can open and see it for maximum 10s and the  pictures will be gone forever  II. Like any other social media, Snapchat has its own risks. A. I am not going to persuade you to quit Snapchat, I still use mine for entertaining B. I am going to try to persuade that you should use Snapchat safely. Body I. Snapchat is not safe as we think A. Many users think that because the app lets you set how long photos appear on a  receiver's phone (between 1 and 10 seconds), the photos will disappear before they do any harm. 1. There is a feature on smartphone called screenshot which captures the  picture of the screen currently and save it to your album 2. According to the study by University of Washington, a majority of  respondents in the study had screen shots taken of their messages at some point 3. The study states that once you sent the picture to the internet, you already  have lost the control and people can share it on any other social media platform. 4. That's how things were supposed to disappear in 10 seconds go with  thousands of shares and sometimes millions of views. B. People may receive sensitive content and bullying message through Snapchat. 1. Based on CBCNews, 10 boys were arrested for using snapchat to make  child pornography 2. The news states that 20% of female and 18% of male teens have sent a  nude photo to others 3. For bullying, it is so simple to say or send something rude to someone. 4. People can say nasty things to each other but if the receiver forgets to  screenshot them, there won’t be any proof, because after the maximum of 10 seconds, those  words are gone forever. C. Most people have an addiction to Snapchat and do not realize it. 1. From the “Audience Analysis”, 90% of respondents agree that they are  addicted to Snapchat. 2. On the Mental Health Blog, psychologist, Aric Sigman claimed that  “Spending too much time online could lead to social isolation, loneliness and a negative outlook. 3. Sigman also points out that these types of psychological symptoms could  eventually lead to more serious health concerns, such as heart disease and cancer. D. As you can see these specific instances, you should be aware that snapchat is not  safe. II. Everyone should use Snapchat safely. A. Snapchat has the "Terms of Use" that need to be read. 1. When you send a picture to someone via "Snapchat", you give Snapchat a  right to use your content. 2. Normally, people also agrees Snapchat to access their address book and  allows it to upload that information.  3. Now you have just shared private contact information of your family and  friends without their permission. B. Check your privacy settings is really important. 1. Snapchat has two different settings which are control who can see the  content you post and controls who can send you photos 2. Make sure both of those settings are set on “my friends” C. You should be careful about what you send. 1. As I said earlier, people can take screenshots of any Snap you send them,  and save it to their camera roll forever. 2. Also, you never know who your friend will be with when they open your  Snapchat, so make sure that you do not send private information. D. Therefore, using snapchat safely will protect yourself and your family. Conclusion I. In summary, you may not see the benefit yet; however, understanding the risk and using  Snapchat safely will prevent you from getting trouble. A. You should try to find out the risk of Snapchat and stay away from that. B. Also, encourage your friend and family to do the same. II. We can avoid the danger that experts are warning us. A. As long as we remember to take caution while using Snapchat. B. I hope everyone enjoyed it
