He was put into a body bag with rocks and thrown into the ocean, sinking without anyone knowing. This was the second death in the novel, but most strange due to him being so little and innocent. For Tim, this made him wonder why people would do this, especially to a kid like Jerry. This induces Tim’s decision to become neutral in the war even further. "Nobody understands it.
Captain Phillips tried to defend the boat from the pirates every way possible to stop them from getting on the boat and he defended while they were on the boat also. He did every protocol he needed to do to keep the pirates from boarding but failed. When the pirates boarded he let his crew down below deck to save them while he faced the pirates like a hero. He locked down everything letting his crew be away from the pirates. Captain Phillips also tried to save his crew by acting like the ship was broken and that there were no more people on board, but the pirates did not believe him.
This is ironic where that Ralph had given Jack the responsibility of making sure the fire was always there and had boys to watch for any sign of help but since they all fell asleep, they lost the chance of being rescued. 2. “We don’t need the conch any more. We know who ought to say things.” (101-102) We:
One bad decision that Odysseus was made when he decided to sail towards Scylla and Charybdis when he could have sailed the other option, “One ship alone, one deep-sea craft sailed clear,/ the Argo sung by the world, when heading home/ from Aeetes’ shores” (12. 76-78). This quote shows that there was one ship that sailed past the Clashing Rocks unharmed. Odysseus could have chosen to sail this path, but he didn’t. A real hero would have taken the route that wouldn’t have killed any of his crew like the route with Scylla and Charybdis did.
In Book 10, he didn’t tell his men about the bag of wind which caused them to think that Aeolus handed Odysseus a bag of gold that he isn’t sharing with his crew, “Within sight of home, and while Odysseus is sleeping, the men open the bag, thinking it contains gold and silver.” This shows that his crew didn’t trust him. They opened the bag and caused the ship to bring them back to Aeolia. If Odysseus was honest with them then perhaps they would’ve been home earlier. In addition, Odysseus was told that it was written in their men’s destiny that they were to die.
Unable to figure out how to destroy the train and unwilling to give up on the target, the officers canvassed the crew for help solving the problem. The crew’s response was immediate and assertive. But only one crewman, electrician Bill Hatfield, had a solution. While working for a railroad before joining the Navy, Hatfield knew the weight of a train causes the rail to sag. If they could make a switch that the flexing rail would close, they could hook it up between the explosives and the detonator.
Ender never wanted to kill anyone. If Ender did harm someone he would go into a depression. When Ender did the bugger simulation, after he killed the whole plant of buggers, Ender began to think if he had done the right thing. They have not told him that it is fake, so Ender goes into panic. After all this Ender went away for a good amount of time to a rusty house on the lake.
”(623). Cowardly his men hid under the ships boards and seats clinging to the ground, just then one of the “heros” men was caught by Scylla and did nothing but scream. Odysseus had pleaded his men to row after five more men had been caught, but it was no use as Charybdis had created a threatning wurl pool that would get his men caught. Luckily they were able to get past the wurl pool and began sailing normally
In the story No Witchcraft for Sale the main character does not tell the truth but did he have a good reason? In the story a man has to cure a little boys eyes from snake venom that blinds you he does cure him. The truth in Unbroken is their plane the Green Hornet crashes and the crewmembers are all gone and they can’t get the plane to work again like it did: “The Green Hornet sets out with the Daisy Mae, but is such a crappy plane it can’t keep up” (114 Hillenbrand). Harsh reality that the savoir in No Witchcraft for Sale is that there are white scientist who want to take the leaf or substance used to cure Teddy and mass produce it.
The captain also knew the ship was sinkable, contrary to what many had believed before the Titanic 's first voyage. While the passengers were under the impression nothing on planet Earth could sink the ginormous ocean liner, Captain Smith was fully aware that there was a slim possibility the Titanic was capable of sinking. In order for the Titanic to sink, more than four of its water tight compartments under the deck had to fill up with water. Since the compartments were watertight, Captain Smith figured only a catastrophic blow to the ship would cause the compartments to
Fearing the attacks may not be over and worried that other planes could be turned into “destructive missiles,” Transport Canada instructed NAV CANADA (the agency that handles air traffic control) not to redirect planes to large urban areas, such as Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. Canada was also upset because they lost 24 Canadiens in the Twin Towers attack, the youngest of these age 29 and the oldest 70. Canada 's economy also would have suffered because of the attacks as most of their supplies comes from the United States. Canada was a quiet leader in sending aid, special rescue units, and equipment.
According to data from the 2014 season, the Steelers rank sixth in highest ticket prices, with the average cost of a ticket being $328 (Reevy). Such high ticket prices result in less opportunities for new fans to attend a game because they may not be willing to spend hundreds of dollars yet. Also, these high ticket prices drive away families from attending a game. By the time a family of four buys their tickets, pays for parking, and satisfies their hunger and thirst, they could very well be $1500 in the hole. Making going a Steeler game regularly almost impossible for the average family.
Non-Jewish Deaths in World War II All though many people believe that the Jewish were just about the only victims in the Holocaust, they don’t realize that all the victims as a whole, almost triple the Jewish amount of deaths. This is important because for those who lost their lives should never be forgotten. Many non-Jewish deaths took place in World War II because of their homeland, purely difference of race, bombings on Japan, and because they’re soldiers. Most victims lives were taken in Europe and West Asia. Many more religions, races, nations, and politically positioned people died in the World War II, who weren’t Jewish.
One of the last, and most prominent, reasons as to why these men died in the sea was the fact that investigation did not occur earlier. These men were unsure if their SOS had gotten through but they were sure that someone would notice the lack of the USS Indianapolis in port. The men knew that at least someone would get suspicious of the large ships tardiness, but there was a lack of urgency and investigation early enough to save more than 317 people. The late action and lack of urgency to find these men after they did not show to port is what caused to many to die such awful deaths as shark attacks, dehydration, blood poisoning, and even murder.
