The reading and the lecture are both about the foretelling of the earthquake. The author of the reading feels that earthquake can be predicted by the three methods. However, the lecturer casts doubt on the relevences of these three methods. First of all, the author mentions that earthquake can be predicted by watching animals behaviour because they have more senses than human being. In addition, he claims that before the earthquake animals show an unusual characters. For instance, in the forth century, in greece animals had left their home before earthquake. The lecturer challenged the claim made by the author. He is of the opinion that animals might be tremble withoutany cause. Furthermore, he says that we could not predict earthquake just by the usual and minor shaking of the animals behaviour. Secondly, The writer suggests that the headahe might be the indication of the earthquake, and he mentions that due to the alternation of the electromagnetic field headache might occur. The lecturer, however, rebuts by mentioning that there is small electromagnetic effect on the human being being, also he claims that it is rare, and we could not foretell earthquake by this. Finally, the author believes thatearthquake can be predicted by theradan emmision. Moreover, states tha rock release gases like radon before the earthquake. The lecturer has opposite view on this argument made by the author. He points out that that might be the indication of the land slide as well as rock brusting than that of sing of the earthquake.
