In this paper we will examine the impact of 9/11 on Americans and the U.S. economy and why the U.S. responded to the terrorism by enacting the USA Patriot act to “protect” America, which had become a big controversial issue to Americans. Another topic we will discuss is the negative effects of the Patriot Act such as violating Americans civil liberties and how the government stereotyped and secretly arrested Arab or Muslim citizens. The tragedy of 9/11 has impacted America in many ways and ever since then, America has made a lot of changes to prevent another tragedy, such as the national security which is tighter than it has ever been in recent years, especially in airports. According to Jennie Wood’s article, she mentions that the airport has way too many restrictions on what to bring in the plane for every traveler, such as, “Liquids and toiletries have to be a certain size and placed in clear, sealed bags. No food or bottled water is allowed through security.
People’s view of the aging sector of society has changed over the years. The mass media and the anti-aging industry are partly responsible for society’s views on aging and have had a profound impact on their perception of aging adults.

Oil is often found in remote hostile locations such as Antarctica or the Middle East. Oil has global political influences. Western countries are seeking to gain political influence in regions of the Middle East that have a large oil reserves. As a result of the west’s hunger for oil the increase in price has been a major drain on the financial reserves of many developed countries and beyond the reach of most developing countries, because of this developing countries are forced to use less effective fuels. One attempts by western countries to ensure a supply of oil has been the BT C pipeline, which is brought problems than benefits for the country’s that it runs through and the people of those countries.
became a super power was that after WW2, the American government saw a need to keep a vigilant watch on countries that wanted to harm U.S. interests.

Such technological advancement placed a lot of financial burden on the operations of Jet Blue. The airline industry continues to feel the effect from the U.S economic slowdown and rise of crude oil/jet fuel prices, which have risen to record numbers with no predictable end in sight. The slow economic growth has compelled both business and individual travelers to cut back on travel expenditure thereby compelling airlines such as Jet Blue to initiate energy conservation measures, targeting specific markets and exploring the possibility of partnership with other airlines. Linked to the volatility of jet fuel prices is the increased in competition posed by new entrants to the airline industry. New entrants such as Virgin America are bracing the competition by offering lower fares to customers.
Security is Crucial Over the years airport security has advanced to newer technology that is able to protect citizens who are traveling far more than they use to be protected. After the brutal terrorist attack of the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), was formed because of the need for more security at the airports. The security systems at airports are often changing to keep up with better technology and new devices. The more security measures people have to go through at the airport, the more it slows down the line, which in turn may make citizens late for their flight. Should airport security be toned down?
