Many people were panicking screamed for help but all of this went in vein and around 20,000 people who lived in Pompeii presumably died either from being crushed, carbonised or inhaling the pyroclastic surge’s deadly gases. Based on Archaeological evidence, one can deduce that Pompeii had many trades, markets and businesses. For example, we know that the civilians of Pompeii could work in shops such as street- side shops which were not restricted to the forum. People used to go from the baths to these types of shops; an example of this is the Macellum which is an ancient Roman indoor market building that sold mostly provisions (especially fruits and vegetables) and is usually alongside the forum and basilica. Food shops had made counters usually from stone or brick with large clay pots (dolia) and they were used for storing dried fruit, grains, other pots were used for liquids such as wine.
Around the dawn of the first millennium, the Han and Roman attitudes toward technology were both of self betterment, however the Han Empire in China placed a much greater worth on technological enhancements than the Roman Empire did. However, it should be noted that every document was written by someone of the upper class, giving no insight into how people of lesser status felt towards technology. This, plus the fact that there are no female perspectives, shows how only a very narrow segment of a larger society felt towards technological advancement. An additional document from either would provide only further to help the understanding of societal attitudes to technology. The Han's view of technology was very self glorifying.
There was no system of representation calling for long campaigns and expensive elections. Whatever this Assembly decided by vote was the law of the land.. The Athenian democracy worked fairly well. The main reason for its success was the quality of the citizens. From the days of Solon, its first lawgiver, the Athenians like the rest of the Greeks had a deep respect for what they called the golden mean, which meant that they avoided extremes in politics.
The two couples one the Andersons that are not proud of their heritage and changed their Muslim name simply because they want to fit in the western society and because they reckon there is no point in having a Muslim name if they do not act like proper Muslims, the Andersons are from a successful sort of rich upper class background everything was easy for them they never had to worry about money or food or anything of that sort.

I will then look in to and discuss the various conspiracy theories that surround the question. Introduction When asked to think of a name associated to the word terrorism Osama bin Laden will spring to the front of many people’s minds. This is not surprising as he been the most influential and internationally recognised terrorist over the last few decades. At 10:30 AM on May the 1st 2011 the White House released a statement claiming bin Laden had been killed in an American operation in Pakistan. Many people all over the US and Europe celebrated at the news as they felt that justice had been done for the 9/11 attacks which killed so many innocent people.
The sinking sun seems to give life to the sinuous shadows, which make a decidedly snaky pattern on their way down the stairs. Thousands of people gather to see this phenomenon, which may have been viewed by the ancient Maya as the manifestation of the god Kukulkán, the feathered serpent. But was the effect intentional, or merely a happy accident? It isn’t possible to read the minds of the Maya who built the structure in roughly AD 1000, but various signs suggest the effect was deliberately created. The most obvious of those signs are the large snake-head sculptures carved into the base of the stairway.
1 Some estimates claim 20,000 human sacrifices a year. The loss of human life would not only weaken the Aztec empire but brought hatred upon the people of the powerful city of Tlaxcala. Many of their own people had been sacrificed, and at the end, the people of Tlaxcala joined forces with the Spanish army to fight the Aztecs. 2 Aztec authority, Henry Nicholson said that among the Aztecs, “human sacrifice was practiced on a scale not even approached by any other ritual system in the history of the world”. Spanish sources report that over 80,000 victims were sacrificed at the dedication of the Great Temple in 1487.
There were false reports of the Japanese spying and planning the Pearl Harbor attack, so the hysteria pushed the US government to start relocating innocent residents into camps. From the Earl Warren (1942) document, it says, “It convinces me more than perhaps any other factor sabotage we are to get, the fifth columns activities that we are to get, are timed just like Pearl Harbor timed. . .” Hysteria was a big paranoia that our countries history has experienced. Wartime hysteria also contributed to the Japanese Interment because over 110,000 Japanese residents were placed in the camps, of all the people being placed in camps, 62% were citizens.
Hay argued that establishing equal access to commerce would benefit American traders and the U.S. economy, and hoped that the Open Door would also prevent disputes between the powers operating in China. For the United States, which held relatively little political clout and no territory in China, the
