I learned that because of the lethal symptoms and rapid spread, the “Black Death” would be one of the most catastrophic events in mankind killing at least 25 million. People died so swiftly and in such high numbers that burial pits were dug, filled, and then abandoned. Bodies (sometimes including the living) were shut up in houses and burned to the ground, and often corpses were left where they died in the streets. There is no doubt that the bad habits of the local populations, that included throwing human waste into the streets, sharing polluted water, and the freedom of pigs and livestock to graze in the city, all contributed to an environment that provided the perfect breeding ground for this disease to spread. In the end, I learned that the spread and symptoms of the “Black Death” would leave an everlasting impression in the world because of the causalities it
The Black Plague is a foul disease that showed up as early as 430 B.C. when it struck in Athens, Greece and attacks the lungs and lymph nodes which causes painful and unappealing effects ("Bubonic plague." World of Scientific). The cause of this widespread plague was certain bacterium called Pasteurella pestis that was embedded in fleas
Now for my lost cause it would have to be food safty the reason why it would have to be food safty because of the things they use in their meet. A muckraker had done a whole books about the meet industry how it is in the inside of the factory (Doc D. text). I thought it was disgusting and horrible.There are many thing that they do to the meet. They would keep it in a hug room rats would go on it and poop on it. What they would do is that they would put rat poisoning on the breed.
Once infected, rodents become heavy, lazy, and lose the concept of fear of predators. Furthermore, the rodents are attracted to the smell of cat urine. Clearly, the rodents are now slow, appetizing, and in the presence of a cat, which leads to a nice and tasty meal for the cat. Once in the cat, the parasite is able to sexually reproduce, ensuring its survival. Ultimately, host manipulation is a very interesting topic.
The Bubonic Plague (Black Death) came to the eastern Mediterranean along the shipping routs. It reached Italy in spring of 1348. By the time the disease spread between 25% and 50% of Europes population had died (document 1, (Source: EyeWitnesstoHistory.com) the Bubonic Plague was spread because in this time there was not any place to put garbage and wast products like we have today, so they would just leave the trash/wast anywhere and everywhere and the result of this would bring rats and many other animals, and with these animals they had fleas and eventually the fleas would get to the people and the humans would get sick and spread it to everyone. Some symptoms of the Bubonic Plague were large swelling lumps which they called "buboes" sizing
5. Evidently from the documents, the most frequently recurring phenomena the accusers felt was the witch 's presence awakening them in their slumber and in some cases said to be sitting on their chests choking them. The bewitchment of animals and creatures being another apparent part of testimonies. For instance, John Louder states "And some tyme after that I being not very well stayed at whome on a Lords day and on the after noon of s 'd day the dores being shutt I did see a black pig in the Roome Comeing towards mee soe I went towards itt to kick it and it vanished away,"(Bridget Bishop,TSB-4,11). He also "...did see a black thing Jump into the window and came & stood Just before my face, upon the bar the body of itt looked like a Munky only the feete ware like a Cocks feete w 'th Claws and the face somewhat more like a mans than a Munkies," which threatened him as well.
RATS, yes even in the man-made trenches of which to protect the soldiers from the enemy also became a home to these disgusting, cat sized, evil, and naked faced rats, who fed off of the dead and or fallen troops of the war and they soldier 's bread making them be more cautious on where they put their bread because of the hideous rats. As if rats weren 't enough excluding the war, the storm-troops came in contact with harsh weapon machinery, it being so bad that if you were hit you 'd fly back and an arm shot off and leaving the victim hanging on barbed wire entanglement, and these were just some of the horrible things that happened. In conclusion, the rats and new machinery just caused more problem for the soldiers during the war, making it even more
The Black Death was one of the most shocking plagues ever to exist. It caused the deaths of approximately 75 to 200 million people, and was at its most devastating between 1346 and 1353. This highly contagious disease started with bacteria called Yersinia pestis. Yersinia pestis is mostly discovered in rodents, especially rats, and in the fleas that forage on them. Contact with other humans and fleabites spread the Black Death.
“Dead dish and gooey vegetable matter were exposed and rotted, while swarms of insects droned in the heavy, humid air.” Even though no one had cared about how sanitary the city was this was one of the reasons the disease spread. All the rotten foods and dead animals attracted mosquitoes which then spread the disease from one person to the next. Environment around the people did a major part in spreading the deadly
As it is with many major crises, the Jews were blamed during the time period of the plague. The people during the time thought that they may have had a disease bestowed upon them because they were living amongst Jews. They began exiling or murdering many Jews. Many Jewish areas were completely abandoned after the exiles, murders, and plague. People were also afraid because the Jews were getting the plague, but not at the same rate as the Jews.
At night the cuinchy bred rats fed on the plentiful corpses. One night I was horrified to find two rats on my blanket tussling for the possession of a severed hand. However, what was worse than the trenches was the malevolent toxic gas the Fritz’s were using. We first encountered it while retreating and I had already made it safely to the other trench but my commander was the last to fall back as he was laying down cover fire for us and was caught in the gas cloud.
The words refer to an epidemic known as the the Black Plague, which began spread through Europe in the year 1347. With the plague came fear and death. It is estimated that twenty-five million people were killed during the outbreak. The plague was spread by fleas who had fed on animals infected with a bacteria called Yersinia pestis. It is thought that fleas were mostly from black rats and cats, however, the bacteria may also be carried by squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, and prairie dogs.
Fallout A grey haze, mixed with brown mist and a tinge of yellow. That’s what the land looks like in the age ahead. Depressing, desolate, dreadful, and even demeaning in most places, the shattered corpse of Washington DC was afflicted with much the same disease as the rest of America. Other cities like Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Las Vegas have had a nasty dose of the irradiated scourge as well, some less than others, but still deadly. Off in the distance the sound of a giant scorpion fighting with a pack of over-sized mole rats could be heard rustling in the stale breeze.
The second pandemic(disease), widely known as the "Black Death" or the Great Plague, originated in China in 1334. Also, plague is an infectious disease caused by bacteria called Yersinia pestis. These bacteria are found mainly in rodents, particularly rats, and in the fleas that feed on them. The first signs of the Black Plague in Europe were present around the fall of 1347, and caused about 60% of Europe’s Population to die off from this deadly disease. The Black death was mainly caused by a deadly bacteria called Yersinia pestis.
The soldiers who were rotated to be in the trenches were miserable. They would be in holes about twelve feet deep and a few hundred miles long with hundreds of men crammed in with them. There would be sickness and decay all around them, the trenches were infested with rats who ate everything including the amputated limbs of lost comrades. “ ...The Western Front did witness two terrible years of immobility and useless carnage” These men lived through the torture of witnessing war first hand, they watched as their fellow comrades were blown to bits by mortar shells. While living in these awful conditions they had an easy opportunity to get the infection “trench foot,” in which the feet of the soldiers would be infected and usually amputated.
