The Prince William Sound, a long-travelled route for the transfer of oil, fell claim to the wreck of an Exxon-Valdez oil tanker, polluting the water and costing Exxon Valdez several billion dollars in reparations. 1,181 miles of the coastline of Alaska were affected and the marine life of Alaskan coast was devastated due to the millions of gallons of crude oil spilled.  Due to the nature of the spill, Exxon Valdez could be held directly accountable for the spillage, with no fault falling on ship construction and very little being attributed to the individual crew. In comparison, the First Energy Corporation’s malfunctions caused a chain reaction of the mistakes and unfortunate timing of malfunctions across many other companies in a catastrophe of communication.
After one hour the battle ended with Magellan with a sword in his face, and his very few supporters dead. Although Magellan did find his way to get to the Pacific Ocean easier by discovering a strait. He was definitely not loyal to anybody but himself. The reasoning for me not willing to help Magellan when in trouble is because he honestly did not deserve anything he did or accomplished. If I was Ferdinand Magellan I would defiantly regret the past, and what the crew had to put up with
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world. Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control.
The Tylenol that ended up killing the seven had been laced with cyanide, but the extent of the damage and whether it was internal or external was not known for several weeks.

Second, Johnson and Johnson found that it was necessary to let doctors, hospitals, and distributors know by explaining the situation and the recall via mailgram messages.

Is this a good place for EM to build an image as a responsible environmental citizen? Few events that happened in the past have led to creating a bad image of ExxonMobil in the minds of the common people. A few of those incidents include the very recent and extremely huge spill Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989, which causes irreparable damage and took years to recover, and total recovery was never possible. Another incident here was when miscommunication caused a life of a poor peasant in the Doba areas. Exxon had already lost a lot of reputation.

We Screwed Up; A Letter of Apology to my Granddaughter (Ward, 2012) is a letter written by Chip Ward to his four year old granddaughter and her possible unborn siblings. He speaks clearly about the devastation that past generations have caused to the planet we all call home, although he fails to provide any evidence concerning what he claims, as well as majorly lacks appreciation for the organizations already working towards a better tomorrow. Chip Ward begins his letter with an apology to his granddaughter and her siblings for using up all of the oil. He claims that, “We are all gas-hogs, plain and simple” (Ward, 2012), in regards to his generation and those previous of it. He goes further to state that we created everything we use from oil.

Jared Snow Ms. Carrell English 1 AP 9/15/15 Water Contamination Water pollution is any chemical, physical, or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks it, uses it or lives in it. I have spent many hours of many days to research this topic to find out facts of water pollution and how to prevent it. According to Food and Water Watch there are over 780 million people all over the earth that are living without clean drinking water. Another fact is every 20 seconds a child under five years old dies from illnesses that are waterborne. There is a lot of information about water contamination, the main topics are, effects of the percentage of water contaminated, ways it gets contaminated, and what to do in the after-math.
It involves high-pressure injections of water and chemicals into rock formations, which in turn release natural gas (Thompson, “Hydraulic Fracturing Should Be Banned”). However, fracking can result in many negative outcomes. For instance, scientists who conducted the earthquake study for Geology discovered that not only did fracking cause the biggest earthquake in Oklahoma, but it also caused more earthquakes in states that hardly experienced any seismic activity (“Wastewater Injection Spurred Biggest Earthquake Yet, Says Study,” The Earth Institute Columbia University). In fact, quakes have hit so frequently in Oklahoma, that state and oil regulators decided to shut down five disposal wells due to the increasing number of earthquakes in a city named Cushing (“Oil Regulators Shut Down Two Disposal Wells After Earthquakes Near Cushing”, State Impact: NPR). If fracking is capable of causing temblors as powerful as a 5.7-magnitude, it may be capable of inducing other massive earthquakes in the future.
In recent years there has been a big issue on fracking in Oklahoma. This is an issue that only continues to get worse. The oil company, , by residents has been blamed for many of these earthquakes. Within the past month, there have been more and more issues. In Edmond Oklahoma, there was a big earthquake, which provoked residents to sue the company for $28 million in damages.
this Court’s order to respond in full to the Hospital’s discovery requests and produce the requested documents. Additionally, Defendant failed to respond to the Hospital’s attempts to confer on this Motion. III. Conclusion and Prayer Defendant’s bad faith behavior implies that he considers himself to be above the requirements of the Rules of Civil Procedure and the authority of this Court.
