Not only has this epidemic dispatched numerous people it made them suffer to the point where it was unbearable to handle. Philadelphia under Siege: The Yellow Fever of 1793 is an article that states, “The number of deaths changed from ten victims a day in August to one hundred a day in October.” As a result
Fisher starts off with a bit of information to warn and tell us the risks of this serious epidemic, she says, “ Two hundred thousand Americans are dead or dying. A million more are infected. Worldwide, forty million, sixty million, or a hundred million infections will be counted in the coming few years.” These factual statistics are meant to warn the nation that we are all at risk no matter our race, political party, gender, age, etc. Fisher shows us that she is a credible source on this topic because she suffers from HIV and can relate to many people out there who also suffer from this virus.
In accordance with David Scott, author of the article “Virginia Mc Martin Dies at 88; Figure in Case on Child Abuse”, it was suggested that this letters contaminated the case from the beginning. In the letter, they could find the name of Raymond Buckey causing hysteria among the children’s parents. Five employees of the daycare were taken into custody and charged with over 120 counts of child abuse that in the end turned to 321 charges involving 49 children. The news of the case soon spread throughout the country. Supposed allegations of child abuse began surfacing in dozens of pre-schools.
The use of evidence, appeal to patriotism and fear all appeal to the emotions of the reader and recommends that they make a change. The hard-hitting evidence that bowel cancer "kills more than 4000 people" every year brings the realisation of the reality of this issue. Death is a topic that strikes an emotion in the majority of the population, as most have experienced it, therefore this use of evidence catches the attention of the reader, making them feel more engaged with the article and connected with it 's contents. Barbecues are a staple part to the Australian culture. The articulation that this new found information is "bad news" for those who enjoy the iconic tradition causes the reader feel dismayed.
Casinos are, as Rosengren puts it, “a social negative.” There have been many lawsuits made against casino gambling throughout history. Rosengren gives evidence of this claim through the Stevens case (his wife sued the casino industry), which was made famous publicly to lawyers. “Soon enough,” Rosengren hopes, “lawyers everywhere will be smelling the blood in the water.” Rosengren abruptly ends this article by dramatically detailing the last moments of Scott Steven’s life, with the very last sentence as his successful suicide
Constant exposure to death and disease took their toll, as well. Disease would spread deadly and fast due to poor sanitation and the close quarters soldiers were put in. For example, there were over 1,300,000 cases of diarrhea among Civil War soldiers, and 34,000 of those cases ended in death. In addition to that, surgeries and amputations were responsible for a great deal of death as well, with over 20,000 soldiers dying post-surgery (Civil War 150 Interactive). Much of the death was a result of the fact that surgeons were not knowledgeable on subjects like hygiene or how bacteria spreads.
The Civil War was filled with many diseases and deaths. Over 620,000 men lost their lives during this war; roughly two thirds of the casualties were caused by the lack of medical knowledge of many diseases. The remaining one third of the casualties was from the actual battle itself. The war became a turning point for many women interested in the medical field. The knowledge of medicine was the beginning of a new age during the Civil War, and the lack of it led to many gruesome deaths.
In both cases of disasters evaluated here, PTSD was reported by numerous agencies to have been prevalent in massive numbers and impairing the lives and functionality of people who were directly involved and even those who were indirectly involved. The Lusitania disaster was especially disturbing which was intensified by the haunting images of mass graves that scattered newspapers for weeks and months following the disaster. These images served as a means for the people who had suffered direct trauma from the disaster to be forced to relive the events further leading to their suffering and ultimately enhancing their symptoms of PTSD. Nicoletta F. Gullace of the Journal of Social Histories (2005) reveals “By all measures the sinking of the Lusitania
Thus, Maria is shown suffering post-traumatic stress disorder from the many traumas she has experienced. She has witnessed the killing of more than 500,000 persons in that war and has witnessed the destruction of the physical landscape of her homeland with its culture, besides the war has turned some of whom she had considered friends and neighbors to enemies and thereafter she has to face her additional injustices when she has to witness the execution of her parents and to be raped by the murders. The trauma of the nineteen years old girl has been constituted in addition to all these factors with her being hold as a prisoner and being involved in a train explosion that left her with perpetual fear. Her traumatic memories of the past have brought her pain with repeated crying and shiver. She fears that her horrible events of the past will be repeated in the near-future which asserts William Adair’s comment that most of Hemingway’s novels “are structured on a disguised repetition of pre-story or early-story ‘shocking losses.’
While the American Revolution was long and suffering it carried a significance on each of the following groups differently (Schultz, K., 2013). While the war killed as many as 25,000, other deaths were caused from disease and the smallpox epidemic. The total amount of deaths that occurred during this time was around 70,000. The colonist were divided up between the ones that were loyal to the British crown, the rebels who rebelled against the crown and the one’s that were indifferent to either side which included many of the individuals living in the colonies (Pettinger, T., 2017). The war took the colonists away from their families and disrupted their daily lives for extended periods of time.
World War Two was an extremely harsh and brutal for everyone involved. As many as fifty to eighty million people lost their lives in this time period, for the simple reason that they wanted others to be happy, healthy, and free; or more commonly, they were discriminated against for things they could not control. Soon after the war started, America swooped in with the intent and purpose to distribute equality, freedom, and justice throughout the world where it was not currently readily available (due to the repercussions and new worldviews caused by the war.) At least, that’s what most people think. Much like the cruel and horrific ongoings of what happened in Jewish Concentration Camps created for the Christians, Jews, Homosexuals, and their supporters; America had practiced similar ideals and treatment towards the Native Americans in our country long before this time.
Indeed, there has tons of sensational shootings that draw an enormous amount of attention in the United States. However, one of the most impressive mass shooting is the Columbine High School Shooting, which was happen on April 20, 1999. This massacre caused the national attention. In this shooting many innocence people died and many families had destroyed.
Richard Murphy's "Anorexia: A Cheating Disorder." is an essay that uses an ethos driven language to communicate the "perversity" of plagiarism in school writing assignments. The need to communicate is kindled by contrasting two writing papers that present accomplishments and incompetency at the same time due to "discontinuities" in the sentences. The foundation of this essay rests on a circumstantial evidence found through a paper turned in by a male student in the past, which leads to questioning the credibility of a female student's paper in the future, only for Murphy to discover later that it wasn't plagiarized. However, Murphy wasn't completely wrong, but he wasn't right either. Murphy understands the importance of the issues confronted
Tyranny, authored by Lesley Fairfield and published in 2009, is a graphic novel about anorexia, a type of eating disorder. Fairfield’s thirty-year struggle with anorexia gives credibility to her description of the disease. The story starts with Anna’s very normal life as a teenage girl, and her life is completely turned around when the symptoms of anorexia reveal themselves. Struggling through the disease, Anna faces death, but recovers and learns so much from the experience. Through the self-isolation theme, faulty comparison theme, and the personification of Tyranny, the author vividly demonstrates the elusive and dangerous symptoms of anorexia and effectively calls public attention to the disease.
