All presidents are ambassadors of their own countries. Although a presidents job is a huge job with gigantic responsibilities it doesn't differ from any other profession; for each and every job shares the same characteristic which is: serving the country for the sake of the nation's prosperity. It is well known that every four years a new president is elected by the Americans to lead the United States of America. Since the United States is considered to be the role model and an elite government of the whole world and so is its president, many things are expected from this strong body. "We lead the world, by deed and example" (The American Moments). Sadly for the past few years the United States has disappointed not only its people but also the whole world for it hasn't yet fulfilled what is expected from it. On November 4, in the year 2008, stood and for the first time an African American, humble and most determined newly elected American president by the name of "Barack Obama" and gave a brilliant speech; A speech that will be marked to be the new dawn to all citizens of the United States of America and the whole world. Although his speech wasn’t that long, it was very comprehensive and effective. He gives an oath to make change in the aspects of the war in Iraq, the global warming threat, education and many other threatening aspects. In his speech Obama directs his citizens with, Pathos, Logos and Ethos in order to deliver his message which is: a new vision, inevitable change, and unity of the whole universe.
The importance of salt throughout history Almost no place on earth is without salt, though this was not clear until revealed by modern geology, in the twentieth century. Until then, salt was desperately searched for, traded for, and fought over. For millennia salt represented wealth. Soldiers and sometimes workers were paid in salt; it was a substance so valuable it served as currency. Salt has influenced the establishment of trade routes, helped with the preservation of food, has helped in the development of both chemistry and geology, is seen as a symbol in religion, and has been associated with love. Today, after thousands of years of, coveting, fighting over, hoarding, taxing, and searching for salt, it appears picturesque, and slightly foolish. Salt became one of the first international commodities of trade, its production was one of the first industries, and in return, the first state monopoly.
