Although the 3000 deaths that occurred as a result of 9/11 were certainly not justifiable that following war on terror lead to the estimated deaths of over two million people.

Fictional short stories have become a common genre in the recent past. However, while authors strive to show high levels of creativity while at the same time capturing the attention of the readers, the level of success varies from one author and consequently from one story to the next. In this case, it is then possible to rank two or more stories and come up with the best among them. One of the most common and effective ways of ranking these stories is by the evaluation of the author’s utilization of various elements of fiction stories that are accepted universally. This paper will consider the story’s plot, the characters, and the point of view in order to demonstrate why the short story, “The Story of an Hour” by Chopin, ranks the best among

The top countries most responsible for the plastic pollution issue are as following, China, The Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Bangladesh.

But the most important of all is the historical events that may be happening during the writers’ time. These events influence the viewpoints of the authors and what they decide to write about. For example, writers in the civil rights movement write about regression and human rights being violated compared to those authors who came after the civil rights movements talk about more freedom and human rights finally being acknowledged.

A nonrational model of decision making occurred prior to the disaster on the BP oil rig that resulted in eleven deaths. BP and Transocean were involved on that tragic day, and neither company appeared to understand what was occurring, and they certainly could not agree.

Due to the horrific ending due to the decisions that day, the garbage can model specifically seems appropriate in this situation.
