The tidesman said that he had been forcibly held on the Liberty by John Hancock’s orders and illegally unloaded the cargo. The next day the officials seized the Liberty and found 20 barrels of tar and 200 barrels of oil which had no permit to have the goods loaded on the ship. This event was very important to the revolution. It strengthened Britain’s decision to suppress the rebels in Boston. Speaking of rebels, you should hear about the Sons of Liberty.
Besides Tilikum recently on September 20th, 2015 on of San Diegos Orcas named "Nakai" hit his face with a portion of the pool during show time despite the whales injury they kept the show running. Later on they found a piece of his chin at the bottom of the pool. Another thing that I noticed is that SeaWorld has lied to us and there are also some interesting thing we did not know about SeaWorld; For starters When the orcas get sunburn they cover it with Black Zinc Oxide, Some of SeaWorld orcas where kidnapped but the once that were not captured they were killed, The trainers at SeaWorld are not biologist but performers, The Orcas in captivity don't live has long as they are supposed to and the collapse dorsal fin is not normal. SeaWorld say they prioritize there
The Edmund Fitzgerald is a big mystery like the Titanic and just like the Titanic it has lots of theories on how it sank but to pacific there was 4 theories on how it sank on November 10, 1975 on lake Superior.People still don’t know what happened to the Edmund Fitzgerald till this day or what happened to her crew 29 men because no one lived to tell the tale of the Edmund Fitzgerald. There are many theories on how it sank to be exact there was 4 theories anyway. I choose the 4th theory. I believe in this theory because in the text titled the “Theory : 4Three Sisters” it talks about how the Edmund Fitzgerald could have sank by the Three Sisters the Three Sisters is a Lake Superior phenomenon that has two huge waves and later a monster wave as the
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.
When the morning rolled around, however, those same locals were shocked to find themselves face to face with the corpse of a 15 meter long sea monster. Although marine biologists have struggled to determine what the monster is - or was, considering the fact it had been dead for three days by the time it washed ashore - tests were able to rule out the possibility of it being a whale. The Blobfish - https://media.mnn.com/assets/images/2017/02/Blobfish-slime-carpet-surface.jpg.696x0_q80_crop-smart.jpg In September of 2013, the blobfish had the dubious honor of being voted the “World’s Ugliest Animal” by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society (yes, it’s a thing). While you can’t help but feel a little bad for the blobfish, it’s difficult to argue against the fact that it was more than deserving of that award. The blobfish is an exclusively deep sea fish and generally resides in the waters of mainland Australia, a country known for its many weird and wonderful (not to mention terrifying) creatures.
Some people stated that the Maine was hit or blown up by the Spanish Navy, however, others said that the ton coal bunker exploded. In 1898, the navy said it was sunk by a water mine, but declare that the tragedy may be anyone’s responsibility and that we cannot fix the problem now. When the declaration of war happened, U.S. President William Mckinley was in the office. President. Mckinley hoped to prevent having a war with Spain, but
Although Jackson was violently shot twice in a restaurant, he survived and after being brutally assaulted on the streets; clung to life for a week before dying, and became a martyr for the Selma marches that followed. The movie also averted from the true reason why King was absent during the first Selma march ‘Bloody Sunday’. It suggested that he was delayed due to his marriage, however, it was proven that King had originally tried to postpone the protest till Monday, but to prevent altercation permitted the march to proceed due to the large turnout. Initially King had felt the march would not last, and would inevitably amount to imprisonment. There was no documented proof of Kings marital
There was a storm coming and I warned Governor Niclous Ovando about the storm but he did not adhere to my warning and he lost twenty-four ships, and he also denied me entry to the port of Santo Domingo, my ships got damaged but we repaired them. I had built a garrison in Panama, which was attacked by Indians on April 6th; here I lost one ship and a number of men. I was denied entry to Hispaniola because the natives said that my administration was ineffective and cruel, but I went anyway. We lost a lot of men and all four ships in the fourth voyage and I did not find a passage to the west. I believe that the islands of the Caribbean are part of the Asian Continent.
It turned out to be a mistake because after 2 days, two oxygen tanks blew up and the space shuttle lost power, causing the temperatures in the shuttle going haywire, “Houston we have a problem. The shuttle soon started coming on food shortages and had to ration for the food to survive. They also had problems getting rid of carbon dioxide in their air. The big question that they had was, “How to get back safely to Earth.” The LM navigation system was not made to help the crew in their situation. “30 minutes before the explosion, at 30 hours and 40 minutes, Apollo 13 had made the normal midcourse correction, which would take it out of a free-return-to-earth trajectory and put it on lunar landing.” The crew couldn’t go to sleep because the temperatures in the space shuttle went haywire which caused the temperature in the shuttle to be freezing cold.
Charles Moore, said a cleanup effort "would bankrupt any country and kill wildlife in the nets as it went." Still, NOAA conducts flyovers to study the garbage patch, and research teams have sailed there to collect debris and water samples. Scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography held a press conference after returning from a three-week voyage in 2009, describing the amount of trash as "shocking." They found large and small items as well as a vast underwater haze of photodegraded plastic flakes, and continue to study how microplastic interacts with a marine environment. Another study published in 2014 estimated that Earth 's oceans now contain 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic overall, based on data from 24 trash-collecting voyages over a six-year period.
The Town of South Amboy was devastated, after it was struck by super storm Sandy on October 29, 2012. The town of South Amboy lost basic services and first responders were working to their full capacity in order to meet the town’s need. There is a Senior assisted living facility in the town of South Amboy near the shore area, the facility housed approximately fifty residents. The view is beautiful from there; however, due to the proximity to the ocean, it’s also a dangerous place due to flooding. The magnitude of super storm Sandy obligated everyone in the facility to evacuate in order to stay alive.
They escaped safely to a raft with another individual named Richard Parker who was only 17 years of age. Food and water aboard the raft were scarce and after 12 days of being adrift, they found themselves completely out of food and water. Eight days subsequent to running out of food and water, Thomas Dudley and Edward Stephens chose to kill Richard Parker, who was the weakest at this time and may have possibly been in a coma, in order to drink his blood and eat his flesh. Brooks did not partake in the killing and devouring of Richard and after 4 days the men were rescued by a passing ship. Thomas and Edward were each charged with Richard 's murder.
Since the PT boats that didn’t fire torpedoes also didn’t have radar, it was difficult for them to find each other. It was especially difficult during the night, when they couldn’t establish visual contact with each other either. This either made them sitting ducks, or hopelessly lost. Destroyers are much larger and much slower than PT boats, but Jack’s crew didn’t spot it in the time it took for them to get out of the way before the Japanese destroyer rammed their boat, killing 2 of his crew. Jack and the 10 other crew he saved swam for 5 hours before they got to Olasana island.
They were not living lavish or anything just alright. The Black Death arrived in Europe by sea in October 1347 when 12 trading ships docked at the port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea. People who got infected with the black plague were expected to live only 5 days. Everyone in Europe was going crazy trying to stay away from the disease and trying their own home remedies to get rid of the disease. 30 - 50 percent of the population was killed in every country.
Imagine sitting in a fancy restaurant and ordering the Willapa Bay oyster special. the waiter says they don’t have any oysters.This tragedy is due to ocean acidification. Ocean acidification is happening in Washington’s backyard, but residents might not know what it is. Ocean acidification is when the pH in the ocean is replaced with more acidic substances like carbon dioxide. Ocean acidification is killing off the oyster population, which is also affecting the jobs in Washington.
