The Role of the Nurse On July 27,1996 the Summer Olympics were in full swing when a pipe bomb exploded in Centennial Olympic Park. The explosion killed 2 and injured 111 people. The pipe bomb was found in unattended nap sack on the park grounds (Ostow, 2003). The bomb threat was called in to a 911 dispatcher but there was a delay in relaying the threat to officers present in the park at that time (Ostrow, 2003). In the days leading up to the Olympics there had been over 99 bomb threats called in to 911 (Ostrow, 2003).
The airmen that dropped such a force of destruction did not know much about it either. However, they knew the destruction would be great, as it involved the splitting of the atom. As a result of the nuclear radiation and sonic boom of the bomb, thousands of Japanese perished. Also, thousands of injured and burned bodies were found by the time the destruction had ceased. There were few that encountered the blast and still survived.
When the atom bombs were dropped most of the cities in the radius of the blast were leveled. Many people died of radiation sickness, some people got flash burns, and some had the horrible fate of vaporizing into thin air in the blink of an eye. The atomic bombing killed millions of people. It was considered to be genocide and the bomb should have not been dropped. Then again the atomic bombs helped end the war so no more troops would have died.
MGT30004 Sustainable Organization Change Project Marcus Richardson 100011109 Executive summary On the evening of April 20, 2010, a well control event allowed hydrocarbons to escape from the Macondo well onto Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon, resulting in explosions and fire on the rig (BP, Sep 8, 2010) On this day eleven people lost their lives while an addional 17 were injured. The oilrig continued to burn for 36 hours when eventually the rig sank to the bottom of the ocean. Oil continued to flow from the well for 87 days after the explosion, causing a enormous amount of damage. BP Exploration & Production Inc. was the lease operator of Mississippi Canyon Block 252, which contains the Macondo well. BP formed an investigation team that was charged with gathering the facts surrounding the accident, analyzing available information to identify possible causes and making recommendations to enable prevention of similar accidents in the future (BP, Sep 8, 2010).
For the first case, a massive flood displaced nearly eight-hundred graves in Hardin, Missouri in 1993. Authorities found displaced human remains over twenty-six square miles of land; fifty people were killed; 55,000 homes were damaged or destroyed; 58,000 people were displaced. It was a truly atrocious, upsetting scenario in which the likelihood of finding bodies was very low, and the procedures were costly. The public expected a lot from the anthropologists, hoping that they would work quickly and be able to recover all of the bodies of their missing families and friends. (Shows like “CSI” and “FBI” may give people an unrealistic expectation of these sorts of jobs.)
On the official report of 9/11 it says that the collapse happened because of the fire in the buildings, but regardless other evidence contradicts this theory. In the documentary 9/11 Mysteries: Demolitions, during an interview with NBC News Professor Jones states that a molten metal was found in the basement of all three buildings, and the only way that the steel would have been able to liquefy the way it did was if Thermite was placed in the buildings to burn the steel, because open fire cannot reach the heat level necessary to melt steel. The professor’s argument shows validity because molten metal was found in all three buildings and in contrary to the repot fire alone did not contain the heat needed to cause the metal to melt. The report failed to clarify the molting of the metal in the fires that pulled down all three buildings. The report given by authority states that the buildings dropped because of the planes crashing into the building and the after math destruction that followed those incidents but fails to state any reasons behind explosions
Courageous firefighters went inside the burning towers of the World Trade Center and saved many lives. They also removed rubble and cleared out the remains of the buildings with the help of police officers and other emergency workers. They supported the country and acted without delay when the military was unable to react. Unfortunately since then thousands of people associated with the clean up and recovery efforts have been suffering from debilitating diseases caused by exposure to the toxic air of ground zero. Many have perished and the death toll is still rising.
Sidakmeet G20 Riots The G20 riots that broke down on July 26 2010 in downtown Toronto made a day in the history of Toronto with largest mass arrest about 1118 protestors were arrested and caused damage worth million of dollars to the public property, shops and historical buildings and injuries to several people. No one had ever seen anything like this in Toronto and cops were trying their best to bring everything under controlled but riots were getting more intense. During the course of the G20 summit about 2000 angry protestors broke away from the protest route and headed toward the convention center where the summit was on its way but they were unsuccessfully as police maintained their blockades, protecting the fence. Protestors smashed the windows of various office buildings and stores along Yonge Street, Queen Street West using hammers, flag poles, umbrellas, chunks of pavement and mailboxes as the conditions were getting bad security was more tighten and more cops were called from neighbouring cities help calm the people. The first property damage reported was a Nike store and even the police headquarters was damaged by the protestors the riots were keep on getting more intense as now the protestors started blazing police cruisers on fire in various location and many bank branches were damaged which led to a total lockdown to Younge street police even the transportation was put on lockdown all the buses and subway was halted.
I think that you have to look at the nature and the timing of the attacks in Oklahoma City and the first world trade center bombing to really determine why the DHS was formed after the attacks. The United States never really had a large-scale attack on US soil except for the attack on Pearl Harbor. The attacks though Oklahoma City and the world trade center were horrible, but they weren’t on such a large scale as the 9/11 attacks. Timothy McVeigh and a small group of extremist came up with the idea to blow up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, because they incidents that happened two years earlier in Waco, Texas (FBI, 2013). I think that this attack didn’t cause a dramatic effect as 9/11 because the thought was that Mr. McVeigh acted alone and he was an American so nobody thought that there was a need for a forming of an agency such as the Department of Homeland Security.
I am here to tell you about key facts and ethical issues about Malden Mills case. During the early evening hours of December 11, 1995, a fire broke out in a textile mill in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The fire destroyed three of eight factory buildings in Lawrence. The fire seemed a disaster to the company, its employees, and its customers. The fire also was a disaster for an entire community and even for the numerous businesses that depend on its products.
