What elements are necessary for an effective essay?
The elements that are most necessary for an effective essay are the introduction (setting the stage for your argument) topic sentence (explains the elements of your argument) thesis statement (succinctly explains your advocacy) body paragraphs (evidence presented and analyzed to support your advocacy) counter argument (what can someone say to disprove your claim? why are they wrong?) and conclusion (what did you prove and what part of your topic provides spaces for further research?). With all of these elements, assuming a standard grasp on sentence structure, grammar, and spelling, any essay can achieve or even exceed expectations.
What elements of a story are meant to entice a reader?
The major elements of a story that are meant to entice a reader are tone, symbolism, point of view, the setting, the conflict, and the characters. Every good story has what I call a "push, pull": someone working towards a goal, otherwise known as a push or protagonist, versus someone working against that person, otherwise known as a pull or antagonist. In the best stories, it is not easy to tell who is who.

How has the nature of the U.S. presidency changed since World War II?
World War II marked a fundamental shift in how the President of the United States presents him/herself to the world. Firstly, it marked a shift from American isolationism to American dominance over the global political system. The Roosevelt and Truman administrations recognized the importance of American leadership of the world stage and fundamentally changed the posture of the office for presidents to follow. As we move through the 20th century, while the global authority of the office increased, anti-Vietnam war sentiments at home put pressure on the legitimacy of the office amongst a large swath of Americans. This remained stagnant until the September 11th terrorist attacks, where President Bush claimed an unprecedented amount of power of the American people in support of the Global War on Terrorism. The creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act support these claims, as our general rights and privacy have continued to dwindle over the last 20 years.
