Earth, the home to humans, animals, and all of biological diversity, experiences changes every second of every day, and these changes are referred to as biological altercations. Biological altercations, like the Santa Ana winds, are commonly disputed among society due to both the positive and negative outcomes of the altercations. The Santa Ana winds are extremely dry winds that affect Southern California and are known to cause wildfires. Individuals like Joan Didion argue that a Santa Ana brings darkness and danger, whereas other individuals like Linda Thomas argue that it brings beauty and value. Each side of this dispute is discussed in Linda Thomas’ essay “Brush Fire”, and
This is a reality among the people of southern california when the Santa Ana winds take over. The essay “Brush Fire” by Linda Thomas is an emotional piece supported through facts and definitions which express how much the Santa Ana winds mean to her. The second essay discussing the winds is a piece which looks at the effects of the santa ana in almost the opposite way. The similarities and differences in “Brush Fire” by Thomas and “The Santa Ana” by Didion both express how meaningful the Santa Ana winds can be in two different writing styles.
“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power.” -Patrick Rothfuss. Everyone in uses figurative language in someway, you could be writing a paper, yelling at your sister, or maybe just talking to yourself. But you use it in someway, shape, or form.
Dry weather made the goings tough and not pleasant. “The intense heat of the prairie caused wood to shrink, and wagon wheels had to be soaked in rivers at night to keep their iron rims from rolling off during the day... Emigrant’s lips blistered and split in the dry air, and their only remedy was to rub axle grease on them.” The dry and hot air had the time to go west even greater than it should had because of little annoyances.
The two writers made use of a pseudonym while publishing their works. Jane Eyre was written under the name of Currer Bell and Incidents under the
She was afraid that the way she spoke about this city would not be the same anymore, but she said,"we will find out." However, when she was in the car to get to the hotel boutique, she said, “this is my place, it is here where I left behind many childhood memories, it still remains in paradise”. On the other hand, I felt I was in Europe because of the architecture. I was fascinated with the way the city looked because there were pink, blue, and yellow colored houses. One thing I found surprising about
What do you think a personality is? How it affect the story? Is every protagonist having similar personality? William Faulkner and Eudora Welty were born in different centuries, but their book, “A Rose for Emily” and “Why I live at the PO” have many kinds of similarities and differences throughout the story. Both stories have similar settings, which takes place in a small town in a South part of the United States.
The authors, Linda Thomas and Joan Didion intersect and diverge from one another in the passages. They use moves in their writing in order to shape their message about the winds. Both “Brush Fire” and “The Santa Ana” have different purposes for the readers. The purpose of “Brush Fire” is to entertain the audience and the purpose of “the Santa Ana” is to inform the readers of the behavior and the mood of Santa Ana during these times. The authors use rhetorical devices like tone and
Our beautiful 31st state, California, is in a major drought. What is causing the valley to sink more than it ever has in recent years? “Sipping California Dry” authored by Matt Richtel, goes beyond the issues at hand by interviewing the farmers themselves, detailing exactly what is happening in the golden state with pictures that show just how bad it is in California. This drought is a real issue, and the author works very hard to bring to light certain aspects of it that we may not know about in a detailed, informative way.
Our topic, the influence of the Kinzua Dam on the Seneca Nation, was chosen after weeks of deliberation. To begin finding a topic, we researched and bounced ideas off of each other to see what to consider more seriously later on. Our previous topics have been near the early 1900s, and we looked more closely at topics near there. However, despite a lack of specifics, the Native Americans began to interest us.
From the Charles Adams Gallery to the Caviel Museum of African American History or the Tornado Gallery, visit one of them or make a day of it and see them all. Don 't forget to follow the First Friday art trail in the Depot District, either. Lubbock is also home to some fantastic festivals. Every September they remember Lubbock 's own, the magnificent Buddy Holly. Just head down to the Buddy Holly statue near the Lubbock Civic Center on or around September 7th.
Subsidence displays the interconnectedness of various problems in California. The intense drought has forced water restrictions onto farmers who are accustomed to excess water and therefore exploit underground aquifers because California is the only state to not regulate groundwater pumping. This causes subsidence, which lowers the land and wrecks havoc on our infrastructure and the environment. Aquifers suffer permanent capacity reductions, which jeopardizes California 's water supply in the future and will cause more groundwater to be pumped, perpetuating the problem. Subsidence shows the importance for California to properly manage its water supply or else risk great economical and environmental
A large part of the driving force behind my interest in both Catawba’s environmental degrees and the Environmental Stewards Program is frustration. All too often it seems like people don’t stop to consider the impact their actions can make on the surrounding environment. Well water in neighborhoods similar to my own is poisoned by new developments that spray chemicals in order to obtain the “perfect lawn,” power companies bulldoze entire areas of forests along creeks and rivers with no regard for the destruction of those waterways and the species that depend on them, and those same new developments I’ve mentioned inevitably doom themselves by increasing severe flooding. My goal is to research and raise awareness about issues while helping the
