Out of 9000 were injured, and flying glass were blinding 200 people. 6000 were homeless in the depth of the Nova Scotia in the winter. 20,000 had less than adequate shelter. Before the exploration, Halifax had a population of 50,000 after the explosions there were half of the city without homes. Resolution- In conclusion, the Halifax Harbour was destroy.
In 1605-1612, the colonists experienced the longest drought (Doc B). Because of the lack of rain, they weren’t able to grow crops (Doc B). The seasons also caused diseases to spread (Doc E). The occupations of the colonists contributed to the colonist dying. They brought gentlemen, rich men that didn’t work with their hands, and they wanted other people to build their houses and hunt for their food (Doc C).
This includes exposure to light, pollution, weathering, erosion, and people walking through the sites, treasure hunters and vandalism. The damage done to Pompeii alone is expected to cost over 300 million US dollars to conserve the town, although due to the severe lack of funding this can be considered to be an impossible task. As both Pompeii and Herculaneum were initially excavated in the 18th century they have been standing exposed to the elements for hundreds of years, and so all structures have been affected by general deterioration over time. Excavations have left structures unstable and are on the verge of collapse. For example on November 6th 2010 the house of the Gladiators collapsed due to general deterioration and also heavy rainfall – see source B.
People living during that time period had a very low tolerance for disease due to a weakened immune system. The Black Death killed anywhere from 30%-60% of the population of Europe. In the 14th century, this translated to about 75-200 million people. Because the workforce was significantly decreased because of all the death, it gave peasants more leeway to demand higher wages. Prices for goods increased along with the wages of the people.
It’s a waste because clean water is not an abundant resource and it will eventually run out. The amount of water used per year for fracking needs to be monitored. Earlier this year in Northern Ohio, over 400,000 residents were left without safe water due to widespread contamination. Residents were even advised not to shower due to the
No medical knowledge existed in Medieval England to cope with the disease. After 1350, it was to strike England another six times by the end of the century. Understandably, peasants were terrified at the news that the Black Death might be approaching their village or town. The Black Death is the name given to a disease called the bubonic plague which was rampant during the Fourteenth Century. In fact, the bubonic plague affected England more than once in that century but its impact on English society from 1348 to 1350 was terrible.
Landlords often borrowed large sums of money and, when serfs died or demanded higher wages, landlords could not raise money to repay creditors. If the landlord succumbed to the plague, there was no way for creditors to recover lost money. Widespread labor shortages led to a rise in labor prices. This occurred in all aspects of the economy but was especially evident in the agricultural sector. Serfs who for centuries had worked the land for little or not pay, suddenly began to demand higher wages and, increasingly, revolted against a nobility that sought to work them for lower wages of the past.
The lack of school material, clothes, or even living in terrible conditions can lead to the not reaching their full potential due to the lack of motivation. The government in 2012 released 3.5 billion dollars to The Native American Reservations, which for 350,000 people is equivalent to 1000 dollars (Volz, “$3.4B Indian Lawsuit Ends, Disbursements to Begin”). However, how far might this money go in a struggling household? The insufficient environment that Native Americans live in is nothing like we might find in any cities in the Northwest. The lack of motivation caused by years of not having a job and watching your family suffer in poverty is a condition that not too many of us are familiar with.
On Black Thursday, The Wall Street Crash of 1929, October 24 also known as the Great Crash was terrible, it was the worse stock market crash ever. The market crash was one of the major causes that led to the Great Depression. There was a huge crowd of people trying to withdrew there life saving but couldn't. They were left with loans and debt they couldn’t pay. Two Months after the crash , stockholders had lost more than $40 billion dollars.
At times the biggest killer wasn't the fighting but the diseases. By the time snow began to fall the men had only the clothes for the warmer months. Often these clothes and boots were worn out and the men not on duty found themselves having to huddle together in dirty old blankets. For Australia, as for many nations, the First World War remains the most costly conflict in terms of deaths. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, over 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.
