The biggest issue in Texas is the over population of children. Texas also has the second highest number of elementary schools due to the amount of children needing education. At this rate, the number of schools will increase and it will become more intense to fund each school. The problem with the overpopulation is that 1.7 million children live in poverty and many of them are segregated in poor neighborhoods. Along with poor neighborhoods, schools also come into play with inefficient resources for the students.
Also, because of the lack of health care, diseases such as hepatitis, typhoid fever, and malaria run rampant. This causes the average life span to range from the mid to late forties. In the video, Poverty in Haiti, Chad Thompson describes his experience in Haiti just four months after the massive earthquake. The information on media and news regarding the poverty in the destroyed country was not nearly as severe as what was actually happening. Children were running barefoot in sewage infested streets with pieces of glass everywhere.
The initial panic was understandable. It has only been three years since Hurricane Sandy hit the entire eastern seaboard, and the memory of the chaos caused by the superstorm is still fresh in many people’s minds. The Category 3 hurricane was the worst extreme weather event in U.S. history based on the total power outage: 8.5 million people in 21 states were left without electricity. It was also the second-costliest in history, with a total damage cost of $65 billion. Worst of all, it took the lives of 117 people.
The worst accident that happen was in Panabai, Guatemala. After the weeks of water rained down this created a mudslide. This mudslide killed more than 600 and hundreds more missing. Guatemala got hit the hardest where over 500 hundred bodies were recovered. The cleanup effort went by slow and the large construction equipment seemed useless in some areas.
Do you learn anything at school? Today, some people concern that school does not help to learn the skills for succeeding individual’s lives. Unfortunately, a large number of students never graduated high school and dropped out of school. According to Tech Insider, Sky Gould and Chris Weller’s “The Most Common Reasons Students Drop Out Of High School Are Heartbreaking,” published in 2015. They explain that nearly two thousands of students dropped out of high school in the U.S. because they failed too many classes, and were not interested in school anymore.
Colony collapse disorder is affecting the honey bees in a big way. In a few short years the population has significantly dropped. The math says that if you lose 30 percent of your bee colonies every year for a few years, you rapidly end up with close to 0 colonies left.The most common factor that many scientists say has been a large contributor to the decline of the honey bees is the amount of stress being put on them. Many researchers have found through the tracking of honey bee activity that they have been forced to go find food or pollen at a young age, ultimately collect less pollen, and die far earlier than generations before. These factors lead to the accelerating of bee colony collapses.
All because he had nobody to love him. One real life example of how abandonment affects human beings is shown by statistics. 60,000 neglected children enter the foster care system every week. They are placed into homes that may not be able to properly care
Lastly and the biggest impact was on the families. When everything was getting washed to sea a lot of families got split up and over 600 people died. Lastly human error was a big impact on this storm being as bad as it was. Forecasters took over 100 hours tracking the storm and they thought that it would miss them, That’s why there was no warning. When the forecasters did put out a warning it was when the storm was considered a hurricane and the hurricane hit them.
Since then, the conflict has only intensified and spread. Roughly one-third of the Afghan population is displaced. To add to that, Afghanistan’s child mortality rates are one of the worst in the world, with children under five dying at a rate of 191 for every 1000 live births (United Nations 2007). The impact of trauma during war conflict is damaging to children’s mental health. Rebel groups began attacks on the Afghan government in
With water flooding damaged streets, many homes not existing no more, electricity being cut short due to heavy rainfall and many civilians either dead or injured, money had to be taken out of the budget for the greater good. According to the Federal Emergency Manage Agency, FEMA, the estimate cost of damages was around $108 billion dollars, making it the costliest hurricane in the United States. The government responded back with an estimate amount of $700 million dollars
Reflection: These poems belongs to a topic which is quite devastating in most ways.This thing causes lots of people to die,to end their pain called life.This traumizing event is called sucicide.Suciside is a very hard thing for an adult to go through but imagine a child because one in every one hundred thousand kids think of sucicide or actually does it but when you are a teenager the risk goes up by quite a bit.Seven out of one hundred thousand kids fall under the influence of this epidemic but it gets even worse when your a young adult it becomes 12.7 percentage of people also have it but sadly these aren 't the ones who recover sadly these are the people who have tried or have ended their pain. These peoms represent how hard it is and
