The inquiry chaired by Dame Janet Smith has determined that Harold Shipman unlawfully killed 215 patients, and in a further 45 there were reasons for being concerned about the true cause of death.1 A statistical analysis gives a figure of 236.2 The first definite killing was in March 1975; the last was in June 1998. On average, there were around 10 killings a year, but the number was highly variable. Between 1990 and 1993 he killed only 3 people, but in 1996 he killed at least 30, and in 1997 at least 37, a rate of one killing every ten days. Yet even then, no concerns were raised officially until a courageous doctor from a neighbouring practice, together with her partners, began to think the unthinkable. In March 1998, by which time he had already killed well over 200 people, a police investigation was begun—but quickly abandoned.

Professor Nicely discovered this issue in June of 1994 but was unable to eliminate other factors until October of 1994. He reported the problem to Intel and they admitted that they were aware of the bug since May of 1994. When Intel finally announced the bug, they originally said that they would only replace chips for users that require high-accuracy calculations, but when IBM publically refused to sell computers with faulty chips, Intel offered to replace all flawed Pentium processors. Because Intel chose to keep the flaw quiet, and because they originally refused to recall the product, they caused a great public outcry. Their mistakes also ended up costing them over $475 million and damaged their image.

Generally, a coating of nail polish may last several days before it begins to chip and fall off. Nail polish can also be removed manually by applying nail polish "remover," a substance designed to break down and dissolve the polish. Traditional colors for nail polish were red, pink and brown, but modern nail polish can now be found in any color. Nail polish forms and techniques have evolved beyond painting solid colors. One such example is the nail stamp products, which involve stamping colored polish designs to nails.

Garrett created a few other very important inventions before the gas mask, such as the hair straightener, which he created by accidently with a liquid he used to polish needles that he found out could completely straighten the hair (“Garrett A Morgan” 1). After he invented the gas mask, he created the three-signal traffic light, which he patented in 1923. He created the light after he witnessed a deadly accident with a vehicle and a horse and carriage (McCree 4) Garrett developed glaucoma and died on July 27, 1963 shortly before the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, in which he was eagerly awaiting to attend (Chamberlain
