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.
On December 14, 2012 twenty first-graders and six educators were killed by a man who then killed himself. There are many conspiracy theories that pass the whole thing off as a hoax; when in fact, it was a very real situation. Peter Houlahan, a Newtown EMT, “Before Sandy Hook I looked at the world as a good place where bad things happen. Now I look at the world as a bad place where good things happen.” Many people have had an emotional and scarring reaction. Based on this EMT’s response, “But Connecticut 's public safety culture is changing, and with it, perhaps, the notion that emergency service workers are somehow immune to emotional injury,” it is directly shown how everyone involved is effected on a large
This disaster happened early in the morning around 8:00 but you wouldn’t have been able to tell because of how thick the smoke was. It is still not confirmed today how exactly the giant airship caught on fire. What we do know is that out of the 97 people on board only 36 died including the crew. One theory on how the Hindenburg caught on fire is that it was caused by an electric spark. We started making airplanes a couple years
It was believed that who ever was the 13th person to come to a gathering he/she would be dead in a years time. The myth talks about gods and goddess in a 12 people gathering and only to be destroyed by the 13th uninvited god called Loki; the god of evil a turmoil .The question which should come to place is this if Friday is named after a god of beauty and a wife of Odin why is it a bad day. In the beginning Friday was the bad luck day this day was the only bad luck day until the 19th century when people associated Friday the 13th as a bad day . There was an only horror of the number 13 and with a"bad luck day" Friday the two were an evil day. I am not sure about the superstition which started in the middle ages when people did not know what to believe in.
Also, a lot of people died in both the bombing of NAgasaki and Hiroshima. A chart shows that 135,000 people either died or were injured somehow, and at Nagasaki 64,000 people were killed or injured, proving that there is no way every single one of those people hurt were military. Therefore, the bomb was an awful solution to an almost solved
I’m currently reading a book by Naomi Klein called Disaster Capitalism that has led me back to the worst terrorist attack in United States history, 9/11. I remember how CNN and Fox were being flooded with the news daily. The story told was, Al-Qaeda members crashed commercial airplanes into the world trade center and the pentagon killing thousands of people. This event is the center of a popular conspiracy theory, because of what unfolded after. The United States invaded Afghanistan and Iraq on the presumption they had nuclear weapons, and introduced the patriot act.
If someone saw on the news that a building blew up and American lives were taken one could assume that would cause a lot of stress. After the bombing “Eighty-three injured persons had injuries/ serious enough to require hospitalization and over half of them (36 adults and nine children) were diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, among their various other injuries”(Sample). Just try to imagine if that was your child that suffered a brain injury, you would probably try to find something to take away the stress. That 's where people begin to smoke. Smoking is bad for the economy.
THE “SI JINX”: A CASE STUDY A good “everyday” example of the debate between correlation and causation involves what has come to be known as the “Sports Illustrated Jinx.” This jinx, so the story goes, is that if a well-known athlete is featured on the cover of the magazine one week, sometime soon that same athlete—often being celebrated for his or her accomplishments—will lose the big game, get injured, or otherwise have some hardship or disaster befall them. And, for a magazine that goes all the way back to 1954, one can imagine that “bad things” have indeed happened to people featured on the cover. One of the more graphic examples: in 1958, after SI put a promising Olympic figure skater on the cover, the entire U.S. figure skating team died in a plane crash. More commonly, of course, the issue involves an athlete
The Gunpowder Plot secured suspicion and complications to Catholics in England for multiple years to follow. Macbeth represented what would have occurred if the conspirators successfully blew up Parliament on November 5th. As Macbeth wanted to murder the King and everyone in his way to gain the throne, the conspirators wanted to murder the people in their way to gain respect and tolerance for their religion. Like Fleance, Banquo’s son who escapes murder from Macbeth, King James I escapes murder from the conspirators, providing support for King James’ belief to be a descendant of Banquo. Shakespeare uses this to flatter his dynasty, claiming his line as true rulers and descendants of royalty (Bryant).
From the time of his capture in London to his official death-named as suicide-in the Spandau prison, he had attempted to kill himself on multiple occasions, including his time in London after Hitler heard of Hess’s failure and disseminating him as “insane” (“Rudolf Hess”). Additionally, while Hess was being held captive in England, he kept protesting that his food was being intoxicated, which may demonstrate his mental instability (Unsolved Political Mysteries 30). Hess’s main actions after the declared failure of his self-proclaimed missions-suicide attempts and food poisoning accusations-brings a possibility that Hess was psychotic, resulting in his final successful attempt at suicide in 1987. Likewise, in the time that Hess was incarcerated at Spandau, Hess became very anti-social (he was the sole prisoner of Spandau for the majority of the time), developed serious physical health issues like hypochondria and gastrointestinal complications, and may have also suffered psychogenic precariousness (Strange and Engigmatic Characters 207). In the end, “On August 17, 1987, he was found strangled to death in a cabin in the exercise yard at Spandau prison.
On September 3, 1929, the day that was known as Black thursday, would forever change the United States economy and its very history. Supreme distress and turmoil would very accurately describe the stock exchange environment that day as some sixteen million shares were traded and investors were wiped out. The morning of the crash the market was doing considerably well rising people were buying, then the market started to decline and then a complete drop, which caused average Americans to lose lots of money. That day caused businesses to close banks to shut their doors and people were left to the streets for the next few years America would be in financial turmoil. Imagine you 're on a roller coaster you can hear the clacking of the roller
While the nation drifted through the dog days, however, a group of terrorists was in the final stages of planning a series of attacks that would kill 3,000 people on September 11. Much of the federal government seemed to have been in a summer daze as well, missing the warning signs of what would become the deadliest act of terrorism on U.S. soil. While some in the intelligence community raised red flags, the White House had brushed off warnings of an impending attack and the CIA was failing to share information with the FBI about the terrorists ' travels. It took 99 days—until December 19, 2001—for the fires at Ground Zero to be extinguished.Cleanup at Ground Zero wasn 't officially completed until May 30, 2002. It took 3.1 million hours of labor to clean up 1.8 million tons of debris at a total cost of cleanup of $750
I still can 't believe the day I first heard of Duncan’s murder. The stormy weather on Thursday the 14th in August of 1040 matched the feelings running through everyone 's head that day. The moment I found out, I began thinking of who could have committed such an act. I knew Macbeth, a great friend of mine, would be just as shocked as me, but for some reason I felt like I couldn 't tell him what I was thinking. I kept remembering the witches’ prophecies about how Macbeth would become king.
Tornadoes are a brutal force of destruction. Currently it is not possible to predict oncoming tornadoes with certainty a relatively long while before the event, for instance a week, and since they form in different places every time...we should be prepared for the worst. A tornado 's result can be devastating and its possibilities are countless. They have a huge impact on the economy, since the reconstruction can be very lengthy and expensive.
One of the most terrifying and stressful moments of human life would emerge in Europe during the 14th century. Nobody expected nor prepared to deal with such a pandemic, the Black Death. From 1347 to 1351, Europe was not the only one that survived that disaster, but also Asia and the Middle East were themselves affected. Socially, nothing worked like before, and people lived as if it was their last day. 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.
