The gap between the wealthy and the impoverished will continue to grow, increasing the amount of people who will be at a disadvantage in our justice system due to their lack of wealth. With the death penalty still in place, these citizens will certainly be subjected to an unfair trial, like how Edward Elmore’s initial trial took only eight days. If his court-appointed defense team
Because commoners’ land was taxed so much, they were unable to feed themselves. Young says “the lack of bread is terrible. The price for bread has risen above people’s ability to pay” (Doc B). Most of the French belonged to the third estate and were unable to provide food for their families causing great misery and anger. This inequality of pay was a huge issue in France, but yet King Louis and the rest of the monarchy did not provide a solution.
Jamestown should have been called Jamesdown, because of all of the colonists that died from 1607-1611. There were over 100 colonists that died in Jamestown. There were three major things that led to the deaths of the Jamestown colonists. They were: starvation, lack of people to fill occupations and drought. The Jamestown colonists didn’t bring enough food.
This was a result of a few different things. The first dilemma that lead to their decline was the army conquered too much land. Like what happened in many other empires the military spread itself too thin. The amount of land they conquered was just too much to handle. This made the taxes skyrocket.
Hundreds, thousands, millions, murdered by immigrants on their lands. WIth no rights peoples land, rights, and lives were taken. Over 100 million died, Disease was the deadliest of all killers.

Notes: Tropical Cyclone Tracey caused an impact in economy of about 950 million dollars in. Also, Tropical Cyclone Tracey lead to a loss in population which dropped the people in jobs decimating local businesses. Tropical Cyclone Tracey destroyed over 9000 homes. Most of the buildings were not built to cyclone regulations despite they were in the cyclone belt. This would have cost them lots of money to rebuild everything again and would have taken a long time to regrow the environment to how it was before.
Destruction of the Minoan Civilization Minoan civilization, which was harmed by fires and earthquakes, had collapsed after the attacks of Mycenaens. Linear B script had started to be used in 1450 BCE. In 1300 BCE, the cities and palaces of Minoan disappeared. Finally in 1100 BCE under the sovereignty of Dors, Minoans had lost their own culture. Today, I have talked about the Minoan Civilization and tried to examine their history, culture, architecture, economy and religion.
The Roman Empire fell in A.D 476. It took a lot of time for the Roman Empire to fall, as it took long to build such a spectacular Empire. The Empire was so vigorous that it lasted for over 500 years. The Roman Empire had numerous rulers. Rome collapsed due to various reasons such as its sheer size that lead to various problems within the Empire, the rise of Christianity that caused disputes within the people of the Empire and also external invasion that was caused due to the weakening of the Empire.
Whipps continues, “Densely populated Europe, which had seen a recent growth in the population of its cities, was a tinderbox for the disease” (2). Also, since they had a lack of resources people were starving, causing their immune systems to weaken. There were many after-effects of the Black Death, such as, labor shortage, lack of religious faith, and Jewish people moving. Every factor played a part in causing the bubonic plague to become an
When the Industrial age came sweeping over Europe, Britain was one of many nations to have seized the opportunity. Mass migration of people into the cities where work became available in factories resulted in poor living conditions for most of Britain’s people during the nineteenth century due to overcrowding. It was estimated around seventy percent of Britain’s total population were working class people by the nineteenth century. This meant poor hours, small wages, and children were forced to work for the family to survive. Had it not been for necessity children would not have worked in conditions where they were continually ill-treated at least for one man who, in a survey conducted about the conditions of the work environment stated, “Necessity
Hurricane Katrina shift the position of the Department of Homeland Security from making natural disasters an equally as important as terrorism. This even showed that disaster planning requires a great deal of collaboration. The Department of Homeland Security who swallowed up FEMA where not quick to react to Hurricane Katrina because all their focus was spend on planning for a prevent terrorist attacks. The failure of the disaster response system resulted in over 1,200 lives lost in Louisiana and Mississippi. FEMA failed to work closely with its State and local counterparts and communications between these partners and the public were strained at best.
The Black Death exterminated the population of Europe, interrupted the progress of science and intellectual effort, as well as lead in a new age of pessimism. Europe would not get back up from that tragedy until centuries later. One to two third of the European’s population was destroyed during the Black Death. Deep economic changes turned up.
The plague then started to infect thousands and thousands until 35% of Europe’s population was deceased. This reduced the world population in total to seventy-five to one hundred million people. Massive loss of life was caused. For a short time war stopped and trade declined. Many of the serfs died, so the remaining ones demanded higher wages.
Bank failures began and spread rapidly, fourteen thousand business failed by the end of the year, and the next four years were spent in the worst depression ever seen. The government struggled to cope under the crisis, and opposition to the gold standard began. Federal and state governments were unable to alleviate the effects of the depression on its people, and unrest throughout the nation began. Unemployment climbed to 20 percent and thousands of strikes occurred in the duration of the depression. The depression ended in 1897, and the government had the help of investors to help bail the country out of the severe
The Rwandan Genocide killed from 500,000 to 1,000,000 people, while the Armenian Genocide killed 800,000 to 180,000. Genocides, the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular group or nation, has affected various countries. Genocide not only brings a war but also problems like decreasing economic affairs and social problems. When genocide starts, society overlooks economic affairs like their agriculture since they focus on the war. In the case of Rwanda, once the genocide had begun many farmers fled or were killed.
