There is a risk to the public if the right person is not hired for a specific job. Although, it was illegal to discriminate based on genetics in the movie, Gattaca still picked it workers based on their genetic traits to meet their standards. After thinking and reviewing the movie again, it made me feel some of the story was similar to the Jim Crow and racial rights movements. I hope at some point there will be no discrimination between the human races, who knows when it will happen or if it ever
“‘We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others’” (Lowry 95). In the novel, The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character Jonas is an Eleven, soon to be a Twelve. At the ceremony of Twelve a person’s Assignment is chosen.
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
(Alexie 512). The Tribal Council told Victor to find somebody to lend him the rest of the money to get a roundtrip plane ticket to Phoenix, but because of where he lives he does not know anybody who has that much money to spare to help him. The setting helps to set up the plot to allow the reader to visualize the way Victor lives and why he is unable to get to
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.
BAE on the other hand had no experience in dealing with baggage handling systems. Automated baggage project was the first by the airport with such a big scale and complexity to change the way of how Denver airport handled the baggage. They are to “greedy’ and eager for the success, but instead, the final product fell short of everyone 's expectations. The best way to get big results is to first ensure you can create a successful prototype. Once the prototype works well, repeat the process on a larger scale, slowly scaling efforts until you reach the end goal.
These new laws have been proposed for years, and will supersede the old laws that have been used for over a decade, which banned racial profiling for all federal law enforcement officials, but gave exemptions for national security and border investigations. In the article Matt Apuzzo and Micheal S. Schmidt shows the contradiction in Obama’s administration ideologies, due to the fact that at the border and airports they support the use of racial profiling to investigate civilians, but won’t permit it anywhere else in American soil. The contradiction in this new airport and border control policies show that at any intersection where immigrants of the US take place, rejecting them or profiling against them to prevent them from crossing into American soil is tolerable, but if someone is already in America that they are then given the right to no longer be racially profiled against. This ideology of treating potential on-American “looking” people different at airports and border crossings different is ludicrous because someone who is Caucasian, could be a lethal threat, or an illegal immigrant, but would fly under a radar because the infiltrators that are being suspected fit the “description”, that would fit a Caucasian
Alaura: Now we are going back to more tragic new about the twin tower attack Fani: We have more shocking news, we have found out that our airline planes were hijacked by Ziad Jarrah, one of the members of Osama Bin Laden. This wasn’t an accident it seems like it was planned. Alaura:
I rather wait 10 minutes on line and take off my shoes and take off my laptop from my bag, to know that I am going have the peace of mind when I go onto my flight. With the existence with the TSA, which was created after 9/11, there has not been any major terrorist attacks that have occurred. So it would be hard to say that the increasingly tight security has been ineffective and in a sense, has been more helpful in preventing terrorist attacks to occur like 9/11. Not only do I believe that we should strengthen our security in airports but also in subways, train stations, and movie theaters because why do we have to wait for a major tragedy to happen in order to enhance to our security? The problem with 9/11 is that we implemented airport security measures because a catastrophic event occurred when we should have implemented before 9/11 so it would have prevented
Bush uses oversimplification in the phrase “America is targeted for attack because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity.” This shows oversimplification because Bush assumes there is only one simple cause of an outcome when there could be many more. Bush describes the planes crashing “The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing…” He also gives many facts about what he will continue to do after the attack. He states, “The functions of our government continue without interruption”, which shows facts that America will keep on going and will not take much affect of what just happened.
The study presented in the article, “The Sky’s the Limit: A Modern Approach To Airport Security,” by author Andrea Simbro, focuses on the constitutional implications of the government 's use of body scanners at airport screening checkpoints. With the constant growth of technology, airport security devices advance as well, to detect new threats. The author extends by saying that in the effort to detect nonmetallic threats, TSA’s primary method for screening is by utilizing advanced body scanners. In an August 2012, Gallup Poll, approximately 46% of regular travelers stated that current screening procedures were ineffective in preventing acts of terrorism on an aircraft. Passengers also found body scanners to be aggressive, inconvenient, and
What the most common story of what had happened on 9/11, was that 4 planes were hijacked; 2 crashed into the Twin Towers, 1 into the Pentagon, and another into a field in Pennsylvania. After the incident, some of the citizens rights were taken away through the Patriot Act. Spying on our own citizens worrying about which ones among us were terrorists and the general feeling of insecurity. We didn’t use to scare so easily, we used to pay attention to our elected officials and public servants and we used to not see each other as the main threat. 3000+ people died on 9/11, yet our civil liberties to this day are still under attack but not from a foreign force, it’s now from ourselves, ignorance, and over reliance and incorrect trust being placed on our government, Which has always been, and moving forward should be of the people, by the people, and for the
Another one would be if they’re going to kick one person off the flight because of their race, than they should kick everyone off the flight including the pilot. Stop and Frisk is a very common practice in New York City. Stop and frisk is the practice by which a police officer initiates allegedly based on reasonable suspicion of criminal activity. This practice does not reduce crime and occurs in higher amounts of people of the minority race. This should be illegal by the 4th amendment.
On September 11, 2001 four U.S. planes were hijacked by the terrorist group, al-Qaeda, and were used as weapons of mass destruction in a suicide terrorist attack which targeted four separate U.S. locations. Over 3,000 people died, more than 6,000 people were injured and there was over $10 billion dollars in damage, to property in the United States. These occurrences which took place on September 11, 2001 were among the most devastating hits to the United States in history, to date. .
