  1. In this article vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage were found to have radiation detection. According to Japans Health Ministry report the radiation “drastically exceeding legal limits”. Not only in broccoli and cabbage but also 11 other types of vegetables. Food and Drug Administration says that they had “ an import alert covering milk, milk products, fresh vegetables and fruit from any four prefectures near the Japanese reactors”. What isn’t in danger? And is it ok now? Well they are currently testing the items and all of the reactors are being monitored. It makes you really think what amount of radiation is to high? Well if someone keeps eating these vegetables everyday for an amount of about 3.5 ounces then it would not be so safe for anyone anymore. This is dangerous when you really think about it. I know I wouldn’t want to find out that I have so much radiation in me. It is scary to think what amount of food got out before they caught the problem. Officials or those in charge should be concerned not only on stopping what is being distributed but making sure that those who got what was distributed do not get sick from the radiation. But now I see that they say its no big deal because “ it is equal to the amount of radiation a person typically receives from the natural environment in a year.” So basically it is like they are saying people receive radiation anyway so it does not matter.
  2. In this article, a chief of security in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico was “gunned down” February 2, 2011. Although officials of the state do not want to let others know, there are thoughts that there could have been other killings of relations. Castillo later goes on saying that there are many drug dealers and that they could have something to do with it, “ Nuevo Laredo is one of the battlegrounds that is being contested by rival drug cartels”
    Castillo does not say if it has been resolved because it was recent crime, and they could have many possibilities. In this article, Castillo is using ethos when he is writing the article for the CNN, a well known news. The emotion of having a policeman shot down by drug dealers would be the pathos of the article. Everyone feels strong about drug dealers taking part in the everyday ruins of the world and maybe that is the kind of pathos Castillo is trying to portray. The timing of Nuevo Laredo being a battle ground corresponds to the shooting of the officer. If they do come to a conclusion of the cartel being responsible it would make a great deal of logical sense, which in this case Castillo is using as the logos of the article. But having the logic together with the timing of other killings then I would say that the logos part of the article would also be the karios of the article. Castillo’s use of rhetorical analysis was fantastic although not clear.
  3. In the current event of Southern Sudan votes on independence, by ABC action news, we are told that 4 million people in Southern Sudan voted to get their independence from the northern part of Africa. But unfortunately the border demarcation, and oil problem were just some of the issues that need to be resolved in order to go through everything piece fully. ABC action news uses logos to tell the audience, that depending on what happened with the issues and how they would be solved, is something that would effect the decision, and that would either bring war or piece to their nation. A smudge of logos was also appearing when the news castor explained that the country just finished a very long civil war and the votes could cause one of both great impactions in their country. In this event Pathos is used to help connect the situation that the southern Sudan people are in. With this we should be able to see their position or views in the voting of independence for their country and for themselves as humans… Although they say that the piece agreement may have taken months I believe that these people wanted their unity of southern piece to transform the discrimination into an unspecified combination that is less of a heart ace, into a remarkable transformation. Ethos then jumps in at the end, when President Obama is said to have congratulated Sudan on their votes for independence being approved, with a remarkable 98% of voters voting for independence.
