Cooper died during the history creating jump. First off, Himmelsbach, who worked the case from 1971 until he retired from the FBI, notes “Cooper didn’t ask for a helmet, gloves, flight jacket, jumpsuit, or boots, It was below zero degrees Fahrenheit outside, dark, and the plane was going 196 MPH” (“D.B. Cooper”). Knowing this, he was probably a very inexperienced jumper, meaning he had an unbelievable high chance of being killed for that jump of history. After all, he left behind the 2 best chutes!
Al Gore, an elected official and environmental activist gave a speech in April 2004 at Yale University called, “The Climate Emergency,” which argued that there was an immediate need for a change in the rapid decline of our climate and environment at the hand of human actions. Through facts, statistics and appeals to his audience’s emotions, Gore shows that as a result of extreme climate conditions, our environment has taken a turn for the worse. Al Gore wanted to illustrate leading causes of negative climate change through the use of our rising population, new technology, and our way of thinking in order to prove that it is because of human action that we haven’t found a solution to this climate emergency. Gore’s educated audience at Yale
Cooper or his motives for hijacking the plane. One of the reasons why no one has uncovered his true identity is because of the lack of evidence. The only real evidence is the tie that Cooper left behind on the plane. This helped eliminate hundreds of suspects, but is still not enough to find the criminal. One of the theories that the FBI had was that he died when he jumped from the plane, but no one has ever found a body.
This would not have been in the best interest of the ship since the night was cloudy and the moon was mostly covered, meaning it would have been easy to have gotten off track to their destination. A last point to why these men died was due to their own unpreparedness. Now the fault of this unpreparedness was not theirs, but the Navy’s. This sinking occurred 3 years after the bombing of Pearl Harbor which left a bad taste of Japanese in the United State’s mouth. Due to this, the United States and its government made the atomic bomb in which it planned to unleash on Japan.
Another instance was when he asserts that the "the whirling turbines could every year kill thousands of migrating songbirds and sea ducks” which has the dual purpose of refuting Broadhurst’s point that the wind farm will not kill any bird and really persuades the reader that the wind farm is detrimental if it will cause the death of wildlife. In addition to imagery, Kennedy also employs repetition of the words us and we in order to bring a sense of alliance against the wind farm, and to include himself as well. A final point is that Kennedy utilizes powerful anaphora. For example, he asserts “I wouldn't build… Nor would I build…”, which show that he is building up his ideas and showing the audience what he believes in and criticizing his critics and presenting the extent of his knowledge of wind farms . Another example of anaphora in which a condemnatory tone is used is when “I (he) invite (invites) these critics… I (he) urge (urges) them to…”
It displays that the Seventh Man could not help his friend due to a storm. He should not be responsible for what happened to his friend K because he did not know that the wave was going to swallow K. If someone dies or gets hurt from a malfunction, they should not be held responsible because it was not their fault in the first place. It reports, “The accident was ultimately traced to a faulty replacement battery that the commander in charge had authorized. When Bradley’s ignition was turned on, the replacement battery in the turret...failed to shut off current to the gun. Mayek, who was 20, died,”(Sherman).
United Airlines Flight 93 Despite the cockpit recordings implying that the passengers fought, overpowered the terrorist and eventually crashed the plane into the ground, people think that the plane was actually shot down. One reason for this theory is that the actual crash site had very little debris, which showed no evidence of a plane crash. All that was left behind was a big crater. Nevertheless, authorities found some debris 10 miles away from the crash site. Which would support this theory, as if the plane was in fact shot it would have started exploding in the air and debris would have been spreed out by 10 miles.
Ethos was supported by the statements made by scientists and politicians. Pathos were used by showing imagery with climate being changed and affecting populations. Logos were used by scientists as well as statistics to help show how the climate is actually being changed. The strength of the claims being made throughout the film were all supported and also came with real world proof as well so they were all valid. I agree with the majority of the claims being made in the film, especially the negative claims made by companies and politicians who whole heartedly knew what was going on but didn’t contain any claims to attack the claims being made about the climate change being
Obviously these aren’t ideal recovery conditions for a man who’s had back surgery a few months prior. Jack served in the pacific, and as he served he began to realize how pointless the war seemed. He said that the pacific theater was “just God damned hot stinking corners of small islands in a group of in a group of islands in a part of the ocean we all hope never to see again” (100). One night, Jack became a hero. Since the PT boats that didn’t fire torpedoes also didn’t have radar, it was difficult for them to find each other.
Furthermore, someone may debate if George Orwell is symbolizing hope with the glass paperweight in 1984, because it eventually shatters—possibly representing that there is no hope. However, when the paperweight was smashed, only the barrier around the coral broke, not the coral itself. Signifying that the hopes and dreams of Julia and Winston are unprotected, but still existent. Also, one may view that Nevil Shute’s novel, On the Beach, represents anything but hope. It is impossible to stop the radiation from spreading, so people around the world are in a hopeless situation.
It also covered the punitive expedition as was one of the incidents that saw the US and almost come so close to war that was it not by the intervention of President Woodrow Wilson and his Mexican counterpart Carranza that the war was averted. Generally, the punitive expedition was and still is considered a failure to Pershing, his troops and to the Americans as they never got to catch Villa. Pershing and his troops were in Mexico for 11 months and they failed to capture the revolutionary leader. Nonetheless, it can also be seen as a success as the troops were able to engage Villa and keep him away from attacking American cities and its people. The invasion to some extent was used by the troops as a training ground and testing of new military equipments in readiness for the war with Germans.
Gary Johnson being a third party candidate is a mixture of the republican and democratic beliefs. Johnson believes Trumps view about the wall is obscured, in his book on page 127 he states “A 10-foot wall just requires an 11-foot ladder." (Johnson, 2012). Pretty much meaning a wall is not going to change anything, the illegals will figure out a way to get over it. Johnson also believes we should do the illegal and unimaginable, that the fifty five million illegal Americans in the country right now should be able to easily get a work visa and start paying taxes and living as a citizen but not making them a citizen.
