Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
All the necessary materials and funds to rebuild the city and its surrounding area could not have come from Canada alone. Although other countries like Great Britain, Australia and China did provide additional support, the United States of America was the country that really made a difference to the survivors of the Halifax Explosion, and the relationship between them and Canada grew as a result. Boston and Halifax demonstrate what a lasting impression could achieve—even a century after the incident, the two cities still hold true to their friendship despite their distance and differences. The immense support and dedication America showed towards this cause tied the two close countries even closer, and to this day, Canada and the United States share a partnership that cannot be easily

The man on the radio announced “BREAKING NEWS: Mark McGwire admits to steroid use!”
At the start of this article, the author began to describe the peaceful day before the bombings at the marathon. It was not shortly after where the author then abruptly transitioned to the bombing itself. A quote that represented this states, “A crisp morning, a day off work, beers and highfives all around...

The globalization of the news cycle played a major role in public debate and demand for a significant response from the government to take immediate action to protect women from sex crimes, but there are many lessons to be learned from this remarkable coverage. It is the case that the sensational aspects of the Delhi Rape occupied centre stage. One rationalization for this is that the primary purpose of any newspaper is to increase circulation.

However, the Fox News seems to be using the word more than other news channel. For example, when I searched ‘shooting’ on Fox News website, I found 36,457 results, and most of them happened in the U.S., but I found 43,007 while most of the incidents happened outside of the U.S. (Fox News).

The ancient Greeks defined Kairos as meaning to act at the right or opportune moment, known as the ‘supreme moment’. Rhetorical situations often appear without warnings, each with its own unique set of challenges, at certain time and places that can’t be replicated.
