Our nation bowed its head for 2,830 people presumed dead and the 700 bodies found at ground zero and the 189 killed in the Pentagon. After this period of respectful mourning our nation sprung into action as to save the deaths of their loved ones from being in vain. Our nations security was breached on a catastrophic level due to our lack of a superior airport security. Post 9-11 legislation was for the most part based around preventing such an event from ever happening again. The first order of business after the attacks involved a few plans to solve the problems at hand then later more long-term changes were
The actual collapse was apparently due to such severe structural damage and the eventual snapping of support beams. Although…due to investigations carried out by many scientists and experts we now know that this is just not plausible. (A building made to be able to handle terrorist attacks and severe fire just gives way less than an hour after impact.) This makes me very suspicious. Once the first plane had struck the north tower there was obviously explosions in approximately 3 floors around the impact zone, but another explosion occurred almost 20 floors below…this explosion was nothing to do with the impact of the aircraft but something far more devious, explosives.
It was an important event because so many people died when the ship sank, partly because of the lack of lifeboats, after the sinking no ship was allowed to set sail unless there were enough lifeboats for everyone on the ship. It was called one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters. I think that the titanic is still talked about because it’s a technological story, where everything seemed to be right with the ship then things went not only wrong, but so horribly wrong, so quickly that it captured people’s imagination at the time.
is by far the most regretful and inconsiderate action (to its citizens/passengers) the nation could have taken at such a war-driven time period in history. In Germany, newspaper reports on the sinking stated to its readers, “the Lusitania was an ‘armed cruiser’ carrying munitions and other war supplies and was therefore a legitimate target” (Ballard 126). Oceanographer and underwater archaeologist, Dr. Robert Ballard explains in an recent personal interview, “I was interested in what really sank the ship since the German submarine only fired one torpedo yet there were two explosions with the second being the more powerful of the two” (Robert D. Ballard). Germany had a strong belief that the U.S. was using passenger ships to send aid to enemy countries like the British and at this time, the U.S. already had numerous powder and explosive factories that produced war materials in mass
130 first class passengers died, 166 second class passengers died and 536 third class passengers died. The highest casualty rate was men. Apparently there was a strict rule about women and children first when it came to boarding the lifeboats. How so Bruce Ismay (Olympic Class Ocean Liner Owner) and Thomas Andrews (Ship Designer) should be blamed for this and was also involved in the sinking of the titanic because they should insure safety measure for all of the classes and to insure that it regulates the British legislation laws, which they did not insure passengers safety of all different class.
Shrimp eaters must have gone through a phase where they are reluctant to buy shrimp “after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the spill that eventually spewed 206 million gallons (780 million liters) of oil from BP’s blown-out well” (Bureau and Mcgill 2010 Pg: 3). Even though only “7% of all shrimp consumed in the U.S. is caught in the Gulf of Mexico.” People still questioned the safety of eating Gulf coast Shrimp (Boyle 2010: 1). The oil spill brought a lot of fear in what is going to happened to the environment , to wildlife, to seafood industry, and to the very livelihood of those people in Louisiana’s and Mississippi’s coasts. The domestic shrimp, in particular, “has been subject to a seemingly continuous stream of bad luck with the 2005 and 2008
On May seventh 1915 there was a very sad tragic day for 128 Americans and families. A “merchant” ship known as the Lusitania was sailing close to the shore where German U-boats like to hang around and was torpedoed and had many people die from an explosion. The British still to this day blame it all on the Germans. But as I go on in my paper you will realize that Germany was justified to sink the boat. Fist off, the Germans had warned them weeks maybe even months back, that if any ships consulting or flying the British flag will be torpedoed after all passengers are off the ship; and this was published in the NEW YORK TIMES and all newspapers throughout the country.
When passengers got off the ship news reporters came and asked questions and taking pictures. One of them asked “Did you actually see the Titanic sinking?” And another asked “Why did the captain ignored the iceberg warnings?” From that moment I made a promise that I will never go on another ship ever again. From, Master John
World War I began because of many obstacles that America would have to sustain in order for the war to diminish. On May 7, 1915, the German army sank a ship called the Lusitania. At this time, 1,198 people lost their lives and included 128 American people. This ship was carrying war shipments from the United States to England. The passengers on the ship knew there may be a possible attack on the ship but Woodrow Wilson condemned this attack as illegal and inhuman.
