The way this article is structured is very well organized and is incredibly effective in getting its information across to readers. The article is all about an argument supporting the use of Ecstasy. This argument is not for the recreational use of the drug, but instead discusses how when coupled with psychotherapy, Ecstasy might very possibly be an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). Much like the other article I reviewed, the lede is short, but it again is effective in drawing readers in through summarizing the article and telling us why we should care through the idea that Ecstasy can help the many that suffer from PTSD. The article then goes using sources to back up this argument. Its most ... More »

The structure in this article is very well done. It is incredibly organized and effective in getting the point across. The lede may be short, but it draws readers in by giving a good idea what the article is about and why we should care but it leaves out the main points making readers continue on to find out more. The article is all about the drug Ecstasy and how it causes a severe depletion of serotonin in the brain (one of the key brain chemicals contributing to feelings of well-being and happiness). After the lede, the entire article consists of and is backed up by sources, research and studies one after the other. It starts with a paper written in an issue of Neurology, then goes into studies conducted at the Johns Hopkins ... More »

This article is good journalism in the sense that it brings up an important issue in society by providing factual information and making it relevant to everyone. The chickens in chicken companies are force fed, including feed that contains arsenic. This article provides the scientific evidence that this chemical is unhealthy and dangerous and considering that most people consume chicken, it is relevant in society by making it known to its readers the dangers that come from force fed animals. This story is news worthy as it discusses a rising issue that most people will find important and it is trust worthy as it cites reliable sources.

This article is good journalism because it provides its readers with interesting, sufficient, factual, and relevant information. Readers become aware that it isn't just sports like football and soccer that are prone to injuries, but recently, cheerleading poses serious increasing risks to its athletes. It provides scientific evidence that there has been increases in the number of concussions due to a dangerous cheerleading stunt and that women tend to be more fragile and prone to injuring themselves. The article also briefly discusses that there are new technologies, methods and precautions being put forth today in order to prevent concussions in athletes, but there is still a need to further prevent serious concussions from ...

This article covers the trend and the issue of evolution. The article discusses the Texas Board of Education and the battle over the teaching of evolution. The board voted to drop a 20-year mandate that science teachers explore with their students the "strengths and weaknesses" of all theories. The article succeeds as good journalism in the sense that it attends to most of the six concepts journalists must discuss in stories of trends and issues: history, scope, reasons for development, impact, countermoves and future. Not only does it attend to these concepts, but it also is of special public importance that includes mentions of the past and future of teaching evolution.

This article is very interesting due to the exciting fact that researchers have newly discovered a previously unknown and an extremely diverse phylum that could double the size of a biological kingdom. Although this article brings awareness to the newly discovered phylum, it seems to ... More »
