Reason for Fire Safety Standards On March 25th of the year 1911, a tragedy arouse in the city of Manhattan. It was the death of 146 workers at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. The public’s reaction to the fire at the Triangle Waste Company factory was that they were disgusted at how the women and children were being treated in the first place. The reason the general public felt this way was because they felt the lack of concern by the owners for the factories workers was beyond ridiculous. One can only imagine how it must have felt when friends and family members had to come verify their loved ones when they were laid out with their bodies mutilated by the flames of the factory fire at the local pier.
One surprise ending came when Dr. Pangloss was taken away for unknown reasons or was selected along with Candice at random. I’m presuming it was for speaking his optimistic opinions against local ideals. The other surprise ending came when another earthquake occurred approximately a week after human sacrifices had concluded. The point of realization came when Candice deliberated the outcome of why Pangloss was hanged however, he may have resigned to accepting it as the people of Lisbon being evil and ignorant. Candice had previously discovered “a world filled with stupidity, plagued by evil, mired in ignorance...” (Sayre, p. 817).
Therefore I disagree with the bomb being dropped because of the innocent lives been taken, the diseases being spread, . Many innocent people such as women and children were not responsible for the bombing at Pearl Harbor. It also created much damaged to the city. Some people survived and later studied that the bomb on Hiroshima created some sort of cancer. Still to this very day there is no cure for this life threatening disease.
Exposing workers to plutonium Angela Harrison Columbia Southern University July 2, 2013 Exposing Workers to Plutonium The case study Exposing Workers to Plutonium discusses how in the late 1990’s it was discovered that thousands of workers/employees were exposed to plutonium at the Department of Energy of the United States government plant in Paduca, Kentucky. Exposures resulted due to the managing advising the workers that their exposure to plutonium was very minute; therefore, the workers did not wear any type of safety equipment. Studies of the area surrounding the plant, have determined that uranium has contaminated wildlife areas and private water wells. The studies have also discovered that there was a higher rate of workers with cancer from ionized radiation (Beauchamp, Bowie, & Arnold, 2009, pp. 172-173).
It is what essentially leads to the explosion that devastated the small town. The blast killed 14 and injured approximately 160 people. Most of the dead were not employees of West Fertilizer Co., but first responders and residents of the town. Firefighters and Police were the first on the scene, followed by residents and on lookers, wanting to get a glimpse of the flames. They were all unaware of the dangers that lurked only a few several hundred feet away, large tanks of ammonium nitrate.
DeStefano, a group of city firefighters in New Haven, Connecticut claimed that the city discriminated against them in consideration of promotions. This group of firefighters, nineteen of which are white and one Hispanic, all met the requirements of a test for promotions into managerial roles. The city overthrew the test stating that they were worried a lawsuit might happen due to the fact that none of the black firefighters achieved high enough test scores to be considered for a promotion. The twenty firefighters that passed made a claim they had been refused for promotions because of their race. After several hearings and test certifications a decision was reached that the test did not create an adverse impact and were accurate assessments of firefighter’s qualifications as related to the job.
After I read Chapter 4, “The Nuclear Lighthouse,” in Mark Hertsgaard’s book Earth Odyssey, I was astonished to learn the information the world, and much more our country, hides from us. During this chapter, Hertsgaard goes into detail about Chelyabinsk, a highly dangerous, toxic region in Russia. Throughout my reading, I became so interested in the stupidity of the citizens and workers in Chelyabinsk that I decided to dig a little deeper and do some research. Environmentally, the situation in Chelyabinsk is not much different from what it was fifteen years ago. Nuclear waste was such a problem for Chelyabinsk because of the three nuclear disasters that took place there at the Mayak complex.
Residents went to emergency shelters because of the radiation. Equipment failure, human error, and bad luck would conspire to create America’s worst nuclear accident. The impact of Three Mile Island was terrible, there was a massive cleanup. The cleanup started in August of 1979 and officially ended in December of 1993. The cleanup cost about 975 million dollars.
People died of radiation months and even years later after the atomic bombs explosions. No one knew what radiation could do to a human being but many soon found out after the bodies of people were found. Their bodies were badly deformed that they looked far from being a human. The atomic bombs that exist today may not carry as much radioactivity as the ones used back then because scientists have probably made them better. Of course no one knows for sure because since the use of atomic bombs in Japan America has not used them on another
All in all, we are really putting the environment and our lives in danger by using fracking. There can be cleaner alternative fuel sources that we could use rather than fracking. Also, the chemicals and water used in the fracking process can be used for better purposes than harming the environment, such as hydroelectric energy. Fracking poses as a serious threat and if it continues, America will be in a very dangerous
