Source I refers to Wallace Hadrill and his organisation, The British School of Rome who states the effects of the three million tourist a year who visit Pompeii and Herculaneum who do provide a lot of funding for the conservation of the sites, However, they damage the site through littering, souvenir hunting, camera flashes which fade frescoes and tourists trampling mosaics. Also, the accidental brushing as well as deliberate touching of walls, columns and frescoes allows perspiration and body oils to react with the ancient surfaces, causing deterioration. There have been poor restoration efforts from archaeologists such as Amadeo Maiuri who used concrete and steel to rebuild buildings which did not mix with the building and used alkaline in the masonry which reacted with the ancient walls producing soluble salts caused the surface to crumble in the House of the Coloured Capitals and some buildings to collapse as seen in Source H. This has been a problem for the EU funded Great Pompeii Project who aims to conserve the insula’s, public and private buildings of the two sites through protecting buildings from weather exposure by supporting buildings with scaffolds. The lack of funding from the Italian government has made it hard for non-government organisations to conserve the site. However, the Herculaneum Conservation Project set up by
The Tariff placed high taxes on imports leading to a decline in international trade. The United States held many loans with European countries that began to default. Reduction in international market spending in the US, coupled with the high tariffs placed on foreign countries led to unemployment abroad and foreign countries were forced to impose their own tariffs on other countries (Kelly, n.d.). The Great Depression was perhaps most devastating to the individual and family. The Depression was recorded to have decreased the marriage rate which helped lead to a decline in the birth rate.
Local tourist focused businesses catering to traditional tourists have complained of Schoolies only spending their tourist dollars at limited outlets. However the history of Schoolies reveals that Schoolies Week was a non-peak tourist slot that was otherwise a down time for tourism. Gold Coast locals generally avoid the tourist hub in peak times, Schoolies has been criticized as local community members completely avoid the Schoolies precinct wherever possible. A familiar tone has rung at many destinations Schoolies dominate in, questioning the benefit and community impact of Schoolies Week. Other community impact issues surrounding Schoolies Week include noise, litter, vandalism and damage to hotel and other property.
With the lack of soldiers, it would be easier to invade Rome, which could’ve led to the decline of the Empire. This proves that internal decay was one of the major causes for the end of Rome. Document 6 shows the invasions of Barbarians in 476 on the Roman Empire. This demonstrates that the government and military were becoming weaker to the point where they weren’t strong enough to protect the empire from invasions. The government could not control all these invasions, so this was another component that helped the fall of the Roman Empire.
Nowadays, the retail industry is targeting younger adults and senior citizens for hire and Wal-Mart is especially guilty for this. In reality it’s impossible to make a living working in retail and these targets are easy to manipulate. The majority of Wal-Marts goods are made outside of the U.S. and often in sweatshops. It’s displeasing and although the fine low prices are tempting, some customers will disappear because customers will feel terrible of workers treatment. Without customers, there is no business and this will hurt this large company in the long-term.

Calling it Quits Divorce plays a big role in modern day America, and unfortunately divorce rates have continued to increase over the past decade. Divorce is often perceived as a negative topic for obvious reasons such as causing damage to the family, traumatizing the children in the family and other psychological effects it has on people involved. However, both of the two articles I researched discuss divorce and its negative psychological effects; one of the articles differs in that it focuses on the ecological aspects of divorce instead. Jacob Duchaine wrote “An Argument Against Divorce” making claims against divorce and its negativity using biblical references and the stance that “No one takes anything seriously anymore, even marriage”(1).

October 21, 2008 Punishment of Oedipus A plethora of people in life tends to bring justice into effect by acting on their own but it is hard especially when the person has to judge himself. Considering Oedipus’s feelings some people may find the punishment he gave himself just and other may find it absurd. There are some other factors that contributed as well to his immediate and repugnant decision which were: the city being devastated by plague, diseases, a fair amount of people dying, crops not growing, etc, and others further discovering which will be discussed so on. Oedipus impetuously answered the sphinx’s riddle and assumed control of Thebes but pulled off his eyes and wanted to be banished from his kingdom. Oedipus really furthered Sophocles' sight metaphor when he defended his decision by humbling himself through blindness.
Diego Cervantes Mr.Olazaba English 11 March 29, 2012 During the great depression there was a lot of poverty because the economy was down and families did not have enough recourses to help support their children . People were drinking alcohol instead of supporting their families, mostly men were drinking. On January 16th, 1919 the 18th amendment of the constitution was ratified, prohibition in the United States was a law.

The 18th amendment contributed to the rise of organized crime because it created a lot of underground business.
