More than one hundred million acres, an area about the size of Pennsylvania, lie in ruin.” The devastating effects did not stop at an agricultural level, but they also affected the social and economic lives of the residents. These cataclysmic events occurred because the cycle of over farming, low price, and drought collided at once. Worster shows us how these events are tied together, causing a cycle of destruction to the farmland, economy and of course human
The ad’s appeal to logos is entertaining and subtle. The many visual effects and vibrant background music provide the viewer with a palatable visual and auditory experience. The thematic elements of fire in the commercial will illustrate the experience of spicy when one eats a bag of Doritos “Blaze.” Correspondingly, the visual experience of Morgan Freeman in a icy palace exemplifies the cool, refreshing experience of enjoying a bottle of Mountain Dew “Ice”.
On television today, many commercials are very similar yet they take on a very different approach while trying to get their message across to their audience. They present their product in such a way that people may not understand what the subliminal message is actually saying. These television commercial producers know exactly what they are doing. “An advertising appeal refers to the approach used to attract the attention of consumers and/or to influence their feelings toward the product, service, or cause. It 's something that moves people, speaks to their wants or need, and excites their interest.”
My favorite ad is #CATmageddon by the organization, Truth. This commercial started running in the beginning of the year and used video of current internet cat memes such as, Keyboard Cat, Roomba Shark Cat and Pirate Cat along with facts and slogans to address Truth 's anti-smoking campaign, "Smoking Kills pets too". The video first presented the fact that cats are twice as likely to get cancer if their owner smokes. This demonstrates the use of rhetoric logos to convince the audience with logical reasoning. In addition, the video also uses pathos, the love and enjoyment people get from watching cat video.
All over the world, unexpected weather can strike, leaving civilians to decide how to respond both physically and emotionally. In New England, each year brings a new brutally cold winter covering the area with snow. Tornadoes and droughts are unpredictable, yet very dangerous to the people in the Midwest. On the West Coast, especially in California, temperatures and humidity levels are high, resulting in annual brush fires that can can climb up the entire coast. In Linda Thomas’s essay “Brush Fire,” she describes the amazing sight that is involved with each new fire from her own perspective as a native of southern California.
For example, Verizon in the past launched an ad campaign based upon the character of the “Test Guy.” What we saw were images of a slightly dorky looking guy, wearing glasses and semi-nice attire, go all over the world testing to see if he could hear the person on the other side of the phone. His tag line was “Can you hear me now.” Of course, this was a very well-known statement to cell phone users. In fact, every time when the majority of America would lose reception on their cell phones, they would in turn respond with “Can you hear me now?”
Over forty years ago much of this territory was burned over, but has since grown up to small white pine, poplar, spruce, and balsam, with tag alder coulies, which together made the best of deer covert. The country was however, still a mass of fallen, rotting logs and brush, which the present dry season has made a carpet of tinder that only awaited a spark and high wind to wipe it up entirely .... .... Contrary to the usual theory, the railways were not responsible for these fires. The cause lay with careless settlers, who set out fire without taking due precaution against it

In old days, agriculture or other primary industries were the main pillar of Michigan state’s economy. “Most Native American settlements in the Great Lakes region were along river valleys or near the shoreline of the Great Lakes, and most of the population located in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula. Tribal settlements were not permanent, with groups moving to new locations every few years. Although agriculture was limited by soil conditions and dense forest, the Native Americans of this region did cultivate crops. Corn, beans, and squash were grown and wild apples, berries, nuts, game, fish, honey, and wild rice provided other sources of food.
The Use of Rhetorical Devices in the “Google Home” Super Bowl Commercial Companies and other forms of media strategically use the three rhetorical appeals, ethos, pathos, and logos, to market goods and/or promote ideas. The appeals have been used for centuries are still prevalent in all types of modern day propaganda. If used correctly, ethos, pathos, and logos can be used as clever tactics to engrain information into the brains of consumers. One of the more notable ways that brands use these appeals are commercials. Google, the world’s most famous multinational technology company, used the three appeals to reach success.
Most people think of these main effects on human life when they think of the consequences of wildfires, but there are other ramifications many don’t realize. One such consequence being the effect on local economies. Wildfires and even severe fire danger can directly decrease recreation and tourism in those areas, potentially taking away significant local government income. Also extensive damage to trees can significantly lower timber supply, both from the short term decrease in timber supply and the longer term decline while to trees regrow. Water supplies can be effected by post-fire erosion and stream sedimentation.
Desertification, Deforestation, soil depletion, and water contamination are among some of the consequences of agriculture. An agricultural boom often means that an over farming and an overproduction stage occurs. This result can be worse than the pre-food famine, because now no food is being produced. Water contamination from pesticides and

Civilian life was made more comfortable because of the advancements that were made through the ages.
