It was concluded that the most likely cause of the fire was the disposal of an extinguished match or cigarette butt in the scrap bin. Since the fabric was extremely flammable, the fire spread quite quickly. 150 women died in the fire because the door was locked and very few escaped from the stairs or elevator. This devastating tragedy was caused by the factory owners. There wouldn’t have been any deaths if the building had proper workplace conditions and safety precautions.
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).
911 truth essay I am very concerned about the inconsistencies in the official explanation of 9/11. Where are the aircraft parts from the attack on the Pentagon? Why have the officials involved in the United 93 flight that crashed in Pennsylvania been silenced? Why did flight 93's debris spread over miles when it was supposed to have crashed in one piece in a field? Something else people should know is the money given to the 911 Commissioners was 2-4 times less than what they needed to make a thorough investigation.
Carpet bombing had been going on in Japan for the last couple months and these incendiary bombs were killing civilians. This was something that the US never wanted to happen. Roosevelt would not have had it happen; yet Truman did it anyway. This was one of the morals that Truman went against.”One of the most dangerous forms of human error is forgetting what one is trying to achieve.”(Paul Nitse) He did not want to see innocent civilians killed because Truman was making a rational decision. Furthermore, Truman went against the one war doctrine that should be used when making decisions in a war.
Some of the challenges the CEO of Claremont Terminal scrap yard faced were stabilizing excavators, front-end loaders, forklifts, water pumps, and shutting down electrical transformers. Because a lot of the debris can be lifted up and carried by the wind, the CEO also needs to make sure that his products are transported and contained in an area far away from the hurricane. A step that Mr. Dienst will take to minimize some of the damage of the hurricane after it strikes is by clearing the debris so that it could be recycled and sold. 3. How did Mr. Dienst prepare the organization for the hurricane?
Accident Reconstruction CJE2602 Accident Reconstruction Accidents happen as they are a part of life. The job that comes to a crime scene investigator would be to reconstruct the events that happened so that they make sense. The crime or accident needs to be reconstructed in a timely and chronological manner that is easy to understand and visualize. Making sure to include photographs of the scene and how it is believed to have happened will help show visualization of the situation. It can also help to determine if there are some form of efforts to be taken in that area to help prevent future accidents from occurring.
Racism is not needed to put out for your anger; it just ruins the human character, being prejudice to the society, or any human being results in ruining the democracy for all. Deferral of the Writ of Habeas Corpus through World War II is absolutely an unconstitutional action, because it threatened the common good of the Japanese American community. This was a vulnerable event to the common good of the community because, instead of searching for those who did the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941 and punishing them, the government interned all the
The deaths of the workers was largely preventable–most of the victims died as a result of neglected safety features and locked doors within the factory building. The tragedy brought widespread attention to the dangerous sweatshop conditions of factories, and led to a series of laws and regulations to be developed that better protected the safety of workers. Progressive were being spread nationwide by the end of William Howard Taft’s presidency. In 1912, Teddy Roosevelt made a last push for the progressive agenda when he launched the third party drive for the presidency against Woodrow Wilson. Although Wilson won the presidency, Roosevelt won, in a sense, because the election was transformative and marked a departure from the decentralized republic that had structured the early 19th century.
The focus of the typical business tycoon laid dead set on profit and production, and left scamp or no spot on the agenda for employee well being and safety. Portentous fatalities in the workplace did nothing to sway factory owners into adopting appropriate hazard prevention measures. This neglect came to a focal point with the Triangle Shirtwaist Company disaster of 1911. A blazing inferno within the floors occupied by the factory caused approximately one hundred and forty six women to lose their lives via incineration or plummeting. David von Drehles nonfiction novel, Triangle: the Fire That Changed America, accounts events before and after the tragedy, and why the Triangle disaster is significant to America as a whole, and not just exclusive to New York.
In the short story Alive, Ha Jin depicts individualism, or the loss thereof and its impact on a Chinese family. Headed to Taifu City to collect money at a coalmine, main character Tong Guhan develops amnesia after an earthquake devastated the community and impaired the memory of its citizens. Since the government felt that all people must work together for the betterment of the community, people like Guhan were forced to re-marry, adopt an orphan, and start a new life. For the Chinese government, this was a unique opportunity to create a new movement and “since this was an emergency [measure], love wasn’t taken into account; so long as the couple didn’t dislike each other, a marriage certificate was issued to them (29). Although as time progresses, Guhan happens to pass by the smell of dumplings and in a flash, instantly remembers his past life.
