Hugo wrote, “The few persons who at this time were at their windows or their doors, regarded this traveler with a sort of distrust.” (page 7). By simply looking at him, the people of D——— had already marked him as someone to avoid and be wary of. We do not associate ourselves with suspicious persons. That is what the world has taught us throughout the years of our lives. Unfortunately this harmful as much as it is helpful.
The failure of gas detectors, fire protection (deluge) and emergency shutdown systems because of these some design systems deficiency. First was location of the detector module rack. Second, there was no automatic fire protection upon gas detection in west half of module C and primary automatic trip functions did not exist for operation safety in Phase 1of Modules C. The location of the control room next to the production modules created failure dependencies such that the fire and blast at Initial Primary Initiating events had a high probability of destroying the control room. With loss of command, control and loss of electrical power the system was technically decapitated. Lack of redundancies in the commands made it extremely difficult at that time to manually control the equipment.
Birmingham actually played a very important role in the civil rights movement and even launched their own movement in 1962 called Project C, also known as the Birmingham campaign. The primary goal of Project C was peaceful protest, but it didn't stay peaceful for long. This campaign was created by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and lasted roughly a year, resulting in much violence. Although the campaign last over a year most of the violence caused came within an eight-day period in May, 1963. The police had attack dogs, there were bombs exploded, and four little black girls were killed at a church all in a little over a week.
The 116th and the 6th Japanese army divisions gained access to Guanghua Gate and the 16th division of the Japanese army entered the Pacific Gate and Zhongshan Gate. In the afternoon of the same day, the capital of China was in the hands of the Japanese which is known as the tragic Nanking Massacre that lasted six weeks. During the massacre, the Japanese committed many crimes such as rape, murder and many other things one’s mind might not even understand. They would also execute prisoners that were held in jail, steel and set everything on fire. Altogether there were 300,000 victims and an estimate from 20,000 to 80, 000 women that were sexually assaulted.
Unlike the death of Mrs. De Ropp or that of Foster, Morgan’s death is unexplainable, and even scarier because he kept typing about an unknown town without being alive. And the town named “Xibeco” he was typing about is, too, a weird point contributing to his passing. Was he seeing heaven or hell? Was he observing some forthcoming events that nobody is able to see? Was he simply experiencing some alteration of his own spirit as his perception was being swept away?
“I just can’t explain how much losing Julius Windmaker hurt us all” (52). Although Victor and Adrian are immensely disappointed at Julius, but they don’t hold the alcoholism against him. They both recognized his defeat is represented by many others within their community, and, therefore, chose not to judge him. This culture of understanding and faith is also interpreted by Victor
It took an entire three Roman legions to finally put a stop to her quest for vengeance. NUMBER 9: NELLIE BLY In 1887 investigative journalist Nellie Bly was locked in an asylum for 10 days, after she courageously feigned insanity to expose the abusive treatment of patients at an infamous New York City mental institution. Bly’s documentation of the brutality and neglect that patients were subjected to shocked the American public. It led to a grand jury investigation and an extra 1 million dollars being allocated for the care of the mentally ill in New York. As well as her charitable journalism, in 1888 Bly gained infamy for her record-breaking trip around the world in just 72 days, traveling by ship and rail.
Penitentiary and military language is seen in words such as ‘’barracks’’ and ‘’search’’ to portray the poor Jewish folk as prisoners of war, prisoners of a crime that they have not committed, and words such as survived don’t offer much hope for the imagination of the reader either, the situation is very grim. These passages indicate a very military and war like setting displayed firmly by the two authors as they have both experienced war. In the last night a sensation of fear is explored by the author in personifications such as ‘’trembling bus” for we all know that buses don’t tremble and that if anything they rattle but no, the author chose tremble to personify the bus and to display the true emotions of all the deportees on board… In conclusion I would say that both of these tragic texts, thought set in the nineteen forties are almost comparable to today with refugee’s leaving places such as Iran and religious massacres taking place in Gaza. The authors of these text do an excellent job of evoquing just how horrible it must have been for German Jews during the Nazi
THE PUEBLO REVOLT In 1680 the individuals best-known put together as “Pueblos” rebelled against their Spanish overlords in the American Southwest. Spaniards had dominated them, their lives, their land, and their souls for eight decades. The Spanish had established and maintained their rule with terror, starting with Juan de Oñate’s invasion in 1598. When the individuals of Acoma resisted, Oñate ordered that one leg be sliced from each man over fifteen and therefore the remainder of the population be in bondage, setting a pattern that lasted four-score years. Now, rising nearly together, the Pueblos drove out Spanish troopers and authorities.
