had happened from an outside perspective as well. 3. Critical Thinking: London was writing when most people got their news from print journalism. Was it more important in that era to provide readers with visual details? Do print reporters and bloggers today focus more on facts and analysis, assuming their readers have seen video coverage of major events? - Yes. I believe since the advancement of technology, videos are able to capture things in real time so then not a lot of description are needed to provide visual details. On the other hand, back in that era, by describing situations in great details and providing visual details, readers were able to imagine the things that were happening even though they were not able to see it in person or in a video.

things such as facts and analysis instead of having to describe a situation. Appreciating Language (1-2) 1. How would you characterize the tone and style of London’s article? Does it seem suited for a popular magazine? Why or why not? - I think his writing is more suited for a column in a newspaper rather than a magazine. The way he described the earthquake seemed more like a reporter type rather than just a brief editorial of some sort. I would think that a popular magazine would just give short points and facts rather than a full blown description of the event. 2. What words and phrases does London use to demonstrate the extent of the damage? - London would use the words “conflagration” and phrases such as “build its own colossal chimney through the atmosphere” and “after the earthquake shock the smoke of San Francisco’s burning was a lurid tower visible a hundred miles away.” These are some examples that demonstrated a very dramatic approach in describing some of the details of the event. These description helps the readers understand the massive amount of destruction made during the earthquake.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
