#1: Urhahn and Koolhaas claimed that throughout all of their projects, when working with all of those people together as one, “you can almost work like in an orchestra, where you can have a hundred instruments playing together to create a symphony.”  I believe that having connections between different groups of people can be something very important in today’s world.

Revision: Urhahn and Koolhaas claimed that throughout all of their projects, when working with all of those people together as one, “you can almost work like in an orchestra, where you can have a hundred instruments playing together to create a symphony.” In other words, there is a lot of beauty in working together to create something worthwhile.  I believe that having connections between different groups of people can be something very important in today’s world.

#2: The analogy stated, “Suppose you saw a child drowning in a pond: would you jump in and rescue her, even if you hadn’t pushed her in?” The idea is that most of us would respond “no” to this question, yet we continue to ignore the people “dying of poverty and preventable disease all over the world.” The EAs support this idea and their foundation is based upon it.

Revision: The philosopher stated, “Suppose you saw a child drowning in a pond: would you jump in and rescue her, even if you hadn’t pushed her in?” The idea is that most of us would respond “no” to this question, yet we continue to ignore the people “dying of poverty and preventable disease all over the world.” Basically, Singer is presenting the idea that most of us claim we would jump into that pond to save that child, yet we ignore the real issue of people dying of poverty and disease. The EAs support this idea and their foundation is based upon it.
