Ike was a huge economic burden to the U.S. and “estimates suggest Ike may become one of the costliest hurricanes on record” (FEMA 10). Hurricanes are known for causing severe structural damage to houses, but also have an effect on many businesses as well. Many people had to evacuate and be out of work for up to two weeks due to power outage and debris. Also, some businesses were damaged by flooding and wind, which caused the loss of crucial business equipment. Businesses were flooded along the Texas coast and lost all of their vital technology such as computers, telephones, and other office equipment.
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.

Anyone that the plague came upon, caused reddening stains on the face and the body would appear, which caused the individual to be thrown in a secluded quarantine factory. This disease appeared in over less than an hour. During this time no one could find the cure for this impeccable disease. As time goes on mass destruction is steady rising in the city. When President Toro heard of this distraught news he was horrified of the mass destruction that was going on.
The initial impact was devastating which left about 300,000 people homeless out of a population of about 410,000. Many of the people were evacuated to nearby cities, and the others lived in makeshift tents on the beach of North beach. In fact years later in 1908 these refugee camps were still in operation. The overall cost of the damages was estimated at the time to be 400 million US Dollars (around 8.2 Billion present Dollars). The fires that were a direct result from the main shock and the aftershocks were just as damaging because of the uncontrollable burning from ruptured gas lines.
Analytical Essay On April 25th, a Sunday in 1999, Al Gore addressed the grieving families of the numerous victims of the Columbine High School massacre. This worst of all shootings ever to happen on American soil had occurred just five days previous. While the shocked nation looked on, Gore attempted to make sense of a senseless act, and bring solace to a community wild with grief and confusion. Gore’s first words to the assembled crowd were simple and straightforward: “Nothing I can say to you can bring you comfort.” This was a very powerful use of an intricate rhetoric, for Gore went on to call on a Higher Authority than himself, the Lord God, as the only Source able to provide the kind of comfort needed in such a terrible crisis. Given the incomprehensible events of the massacre, this was an emotionally sensitive as well as logical stance.

Getting divorced can be difficult and in some cases it can become a nightmare.
Police Brutality Through out the years we have heard many cases of police brutality. There have been many civilian fatalities due to the inconsiderate amount of police brutality across the U.S, which is why I believe that the law should come down harder on police officers instead of letting them walk freely. There have been famous cases such as the Eric Garner case, cases such as these have happened frequently and last I think that the law should come down harder on police officers for abusing their power. On July 17, 2014 something tragic happened to a family man but not many of us know this because justice was never dealt in court. On this tragic day a father of two and happily married wife lost someone very dear and it was Eric Garner.
The Twin Towers were collapsing, but of course I was imperious. I didn’t know what was happening, so I kept yelling at my mom to change the channel. As I grew older, I realized what 9/11 was. More than a thousand people died on this day. However, it wasn’t until the short video clips at the Museum of Tolerance showed me that this was genocide.
