Many people know of the Vietnam War and its devastating effect on both the United States and Vietnam, but few know of its effect on Cambodia and the mass genocide following the war. The United States, under Lyndon Johnson’s administration, bombed Cambodian villages believed to be containing Vietnamese communists and supply routes. U.S carpet bombing began to increase in support of the pullout of U.S troops in Vietnam. The B-52 bombing campaign ended as a result of a peace treaty between the United States and the North Vietnamese, but the Khmer Rouge and Lon Nol armies continued to fight until Phenom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge then began their terrible reign and efforts to reconstruct Cambodia resulting in a mass genocide.
Today there are 118 elements on the periodic table; Mendeleev’s version had only 63 elements on it. The first scientific discovery of an element was phosphorous. Other Metals is a group that consists of 7 elements. Other metals are special because unlike transition metals the other metals don’t exhibit a variable oxidation state. They are also solid and have a high density, they
framework in the North was demolished, “especially after Operation Linebacker II”. (Rohn) Operation Linebacker II, was a full-scale air campaign against the North Vietnamese, the planes dropped bombs on densely populated areas over an 11-day spread. These bombings showed innocent civilians of South Vietnam violence and war, which hurt their community and family. Till this day there are several unexploded bombs left in the Vietnamese rural areas. The environmental damage to Vietnam was immense and was hard for the people of Vietnam to get over.
There are several issues that make this case difficult. First, it is illegal to transfer prescription medicine to any person other than who it is prescribed, it is imprinted on every prescription label (Valid Prescription Requirements, (n.d.)). Therefore, Mrs. Poole is at fault, however Janice is just as at fault because she took the medication from Mrs. Poole knowing it was by prescription only. If Janice would have seen a doctor before beginning Babyban, she should have been warned that most birth control is not effective right away, it is advised to use a backup method, like condoms, for at least two weeks (CDC, 2013). Thus, Babyban may have actually been effective in preventing pregnancy in Janice Potts, if she had been outside of the two week window.
Some examples are that for the past several years we have heard that polio vaccine lead lymphoma and caused the AIDS epidemic, and the MMR vaccine lead to Crohn’s disease and autism. These theories, however have not bothered themselves with facts, that might be fair in the time of chiropractic’s infancy, but now, in the 20th century it is not acceptable. The lack of true information about vaccination is a struggle to the vaccination policy. A research by Kennedy et al. shows that health professionals consider that girls are empowered to make decisions about the HPV vaccine for themselves, some of them decide not to take the vaccine for the lack of information.
in Frey et al 1), is a theoretical frame for understanding the environmental impacts and the related adverse consequences of militarism and war-making (Frey et al 1). The nature of utilizing Agent Orange and other herbicides during the Vietnam War was felt by some researchers as injustice or toxic violence. The use of these herbicides (as mentioned throughout this paper) were to defoliate vegetation and inhibit future vegetation growth and to remove canopy covering along supply routes, military zones and areas along U.S. military bases. The scope and scale was much larger than the original plan of Operation Ranch Hand. However, the full scope of contamination will remain unknown due to the drifting of herbicides during the military spraying and the unaccounted-for stockpiles of herbicides that remained in the country after the war.
The British first came to India not only because of the abundance of raw materials, but also the mass potential they seen. The British East India Company, took advantage of the collapsing Mughal Empire, and broke away from their control to flourished their company. In 1857 the Sepoy army rebelled and that caused the British to come in guns blazing and take over the country. The British rule demolished India through, taxation on anything made in India, and the exportation of raw materials, which caused a plentiful amount of famine,and throughout all of this, the British kept most on India uneducated, and those they did educate, most were forced to become interpreters for the benefits it would make in taking over India and keeping the British in control. Political Paragraph British imperialism had a negative effect on the politics of India because of the corrupt justice system, and the utter lack of respect that killed masses of innocent people.
Burgess wrote the novel after reacting in horror to the reports of plans to use behaviour modification with American prisoners and the calls of British politiitians for similar actions. As a direct extension of his ideas on free will and the repressiveness of the state Burgess could not accept the classical and operant conditioning behaviourist paradigm which included aversion therapy advocated by BF Skinner (Newman,1991). Burgess described Skinner 's book Beyond Freedom and Dignity, which was published in 1971, the same year as Kubrick 's film, as 'one of the most dangerous books ever written [because he] seems to miss the whole point of life
The Cost of War, the disastrous repercussions of using force is demonstrated in the consequences of wars. Because of the fact that people could not get along and many were trying to force their ideas on people, wars were the aftermath. In August 1945, U.S. drops atomic bombs which killed many people and destroyed tons of plants and animal life. In 1949, Germany placed an embargo on a food and fuel shipment; destroying all the agricultural areas. In the Vietnam War, U.S. used Agent Orange to destroy the forest in Vietnam.
Mercury in high amounts is known to have negative neurological effects. The amount of mercury found in thimerosal was more than the amount approved by the FDA. Upon this discovery, the FDA made it mandatory for vaccine companies to either get rid of thimerosal or reduce the amount of it from the vaccines. In 2001 a comprehensive study by The Institute of Medicine concluded that there was not sufficient evidence linking mercury in vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders. Thimerosal is not used in most vaccines today except for a few influenza vaccines.
The Vietnam War was fought to stop the spread of communism that threatened the United States way of life. War strategies that were used were harsh, major battles bloody, and war opposition at home was high. The leaders of our countries decisions caused devastating effects that not only shook our country but the whole world. The United States had fought wars in the past to stop the spread of communism. Vietnam had been under French control since the 1880s.
4. The Vietnam War saw the use of many controversial military tactics used by both the United States and their allies, as well as the Viet Cong and NVA. On the American side, one of the most prevalent and well known missions was Operation Ranch Hand, a decade long herbicidal warfare campaign that is still causing terrible birth defects to this day. The herbicides used in Agent Orange were contaminated with an even worse chemical, known as TCDD, which is a heavy carcinogen and teratogen. In the period that it was used, agricultural lands were sprayed with Agent Orange in an attempt to starve the enemy by destroying the main crop in the region, rice.
People who had other underlying health problems made it difficult to identify symptoms of SARS because it made it hard to differentiate (CDC, 2013). 3. Scientists believed the newly infected individuals produced quality specimen and it was impossible to detect the microbe once the infected individual started to recover. Scientists wanted to compare patients blood antibody test from early in their illness to the end of their illness in which they found that
Operation Ranch Hand was done by Americans to harm these forests. The mission was to drop chemicals like herbicides on the forests. American efforts to hurt the Vietnamese caused a serious environmental damage in Vietnam which even to this day is not resolved. Agent Orange was one of these herbicides. Some facilities in America had the job of creating this chemical.
The period from 1960’s to 1970’s was a hardship time for Americans because of Vietnam invasion. In an attempt to contain and defeat communism, the United States, oblivious of the enemy capability and filled with pride, invaded Vietnam at a cost of large financial expense and human lives. North Vietnamese military supported by forces of China and the Soviet Union fought the American force ferociously and was able to force America to end its invasion in 1975. As with most other third world countries, Vietnam also has a long history of colonization by European powers. The territory that occupies modern-day Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, was part of French-Indochina, as one of France’s collection of many colonies.
