The Buffalo Creek Flood killed many people in the February of 1972. After the flood, Pittston not only didn’t admit the responsibility, but also claimed it as a natural disaster, called it “an act of god,” and later on claimed and blamed that the Buffalo Mining Company was a separate division altogether and that Pittston couldn’t be responsible for its actions. Furthermore, since Pittston rushed to settle the survivors with only 4000 dollars for the survivors from the flood, the survivors are angry with that. So it triggered the survivors to look for a law firm that is Arnold & Porter, and to represent them and seek for justice. After the flood, many people lose everything, and they had no choice but to accept these offers because they couldn’t wait until the lawsuit to follow through, not even guarantee that they will be compensated or win lawsuits.
Although i believe many things from both people, I would have to say my philosophy would be Jefferson’s philosophy because he believed every word of the Constitution. It does not make sense to compose an important document that is beneficial to the people, and not stand by it. That's like being a teacher who composes a set of classroom rules and does not enforce them. 8.) I believe Adams was a great president because he managed to keep George Washington’s policy of remaining neutral and staying isolated.
Case Situation (important facts): • New Jersey senator Robert G. Torricelli ran for reelection in 2002 raising more than 2.9 million dollars in campaign funds. • Abruptly quit the race because of “ethical misconduct” Then later was stated “he accepted campaign gifts from a contributor. • Two months after quitting the race he found a lobbying practice called Rosemont Associates that had clients in Taiwan, Puerto Rico, and the United States. • Torricelli gave $10,000 to Illinois Governor and more than $40,000 to a Nevada Democratic party which all linked to the Senate leader Harry Reid. All these politicians had one thing in common which was they all had some influence over Torricelli or his clients business interests.
The stretch of highway between Victoria and Duncan on Vancouver Island has averaged in claiming at least 2 lives per year caused by its steep and winding turns. There’s no doubt these highway deaths have triggered local government to conduct countless reviews of the highways safety over the years. But are the pending improvements just another waste of taxpayer’s dollars? Why are we not working on alternatives? And in light of an impending natural disaster, is simply widening and adding concrete barriers really the answer, or just another band-aid remedy, only claiming to make the highway safer?
With this power in our political system nothing new ever gets a chance to be implemented into our lives. I mean I agree with Congress that such a big project would certainly be beneficial to the economy and open up a huge amount of job opportunities. The opposers believe that the issue will hurt the environment and this to them is too big of a risk to take. Well I’ve heard Obama state before we need to bring more jobs to our country at home, well wouldn’t this be a perfect chance at doing that? There are two branches of government here battling back and forth between the pros and cons of the proposed new project, but in my opinion the President is wrong and the pro’s certainly outweigh the
Even some states allow fracking to be exempt from state water use regulation, an agreement limiting large water withdrawals; despite the fact that each fracking well uses up to five million gallons of locally sourced water. In the article, Should Fracking Stop? The authors provided information that there are water recovery tanks. These water recovery tanks contain polluted flow-back water that gets injected to a deep storage well and eventually it is sent to a treatment plant. It’s a waste because clean water is not an abundant resource and it will eventually run out.
Over the years, the silt has been collecting in Lake Mead, the nation’s largest reservoir, and it is predicted that over the next few hundred years this lake will fill up with silt. This could threaten the entire Colorado River reservoir system. Just in the past 10 years, Lake Mead’s water levels have dropped by more than 100 feet and the basin is only half full. Something needs to be done to stop the trends and even
#7 In all probability, all government employees will eventually receive any pay that is missed during a government shutdown. During the 5 day U.S. government shutdown back in 1995, approximately 800,000 "non-essential" government employees were told not to come in to work. But eventually they all got paid retroactively anyway. #8 During a government shutdown, the Department of Homeland Security will suspend operation of its e-Verify system. Employers will be unable to verify the immigration status of job applicants and that could have a substantial negative impact on hiring.
Interoperability is dangerous to the concept of Federalism because although New Orleans was granted money to fund the system by the national government, at the state level, it was never implemented. The dangerous part comes in when the public asks whose fault it was that the system wasn’t in place when it really mattered. The state believes the national government should have been more involved to mandate deadlines and be more proactive in the implementation. The public and many other professionals involved believe the local government could have ironed out all the ethical issues and implemented the system with only the financial help from the national government. Unfortunately for Katrina victims, that’s not what took
They are merely taking advantage of us. Finally, Locke establishes that “the power the every individual gave the society when he entered into it can never revert to the individuals again.” Even though Locke’s writing supports the dissolution of the British government, Samuel Johnson does not agree. For example, Johnson explains that in a very large part of every community the people only care for themselves, and by only caring for themselves, it can blind them of seeing what is actually in the “nearest good.” Johnson is stating that being connected to the British government is America’s “nearest good”, and by disconnecting from their rule, the community will be disconnecting from what is actually good for them. This however is not true because the control of the British on us is getting out of hand and we must rebel. In agreement with Samuel Johnson, Samuel Seabury also states that getting away from the British will not be beneficial to us.
