That is a huge mass of land that does not seem hard to find, which questions the believers of Atlantis. There are so many theories of where Atlantis is located, some say it is located in Antarctica, some say the Bermuda triangle, others the Strait of Gibraltar, or off the Moroccan coast. With so many possible locations people do not know the exact place to look for the lost city. Plato was very specific about the location of his fantasy, researchers found that Plato’s “description of the city was built impossible” (Mishkov). So, the real reason that Plato created his theory isn’t because he knows Atlantis existed.
Many witnesses said they could hear two distinct explosions few second apart. If it was only attacking then it would only be 1 explosion not 2 explosions. Another reason why it was external mine because the report from the diver who swam down and invent the bottom plate of the ship. The 3 metal plates of the ship were bent inward however, if it was an internal explosion, then it the metal plates would be bent outward not inward. The 1911 report with Vreeland Broad had agreed that it was a explosion of the magazines were triggered by an external force BUT the damage to the USS Maine was more powerful that the Sampson Board which was the 1898 report.
Allied landing forces needed to get equipment and Soldiers inland as quickly as possible to push Axis defenses back and provide a safe zone. Studying the Sicilian terrain, there was only one potential exit for Axis defenses – the strait at Messina. The ‘funnel’ of moving toward Messina provided Axis forces continually folding defensive lines as Allied forces pushed north. Axis forces in the strait provided a COG for operational maneuver. But Allied operations headquarters did not coordinate a joint function plan.
Usually mythology has meaning or a reason to be created, like dragons were most likely inspired by people discovering dinosaur bones and were exaggerated to breathe fire which could be understandable since they found giant monsters that they had no idea what it could be. Also with mermaids which were most likely inspired by manatees, this is thought because during Christopher Columbus’s travels he said he saw three mermaids in the water and wrote about In his journal and this is what was written: "On the previous day [8 Jan 1493], when the Admiral went to the Rio del Oro [Haiti], he said he quite distinctly saw three mermaids, which rose well out of the sea; but they are not so beautiful as they are said to be, for their faces had some masculine traits." And also manatees and dugongs are known to do “tail stands” out of the water and they are able to turn their heads and have arm and hand like bone
It all comes down to motivation/mission, and the aid received from the home nation. The French never fully recovered both politically and militarily from the war with Spain before they begin their expedition. With a mission and motive being mostly to flex the French crown’s power by settling into Florida means that the crown had no real plans for colonization. In reference to other discussion throughout this class, the French took the same idea the Spanish used earlier. A stronghold within the territory to attempt to hold the whole area of Florida.
Atlantis was fictional island mentioned within an allegory on the hubris of nations in plato’s works Timaeus and Critias, where it represents the antagonist naval power that besieges. Atlantis sunk into the Atlantic ocean after it was hit by a volcano eruption. Atlantis is 9000 years old, before the time of solon or a approximately 9600 B.C. Atlantis was built around aquaventure, a 141 acre waterscape which include fresh and saltwater lagoons, pools,marine habitats, and water slides and river rides. As of 2014, Atlantis has not been found, but researchers and scientists suggest that had Atlantis ever existed, the ost city would have sunk either during the pleistocene ice ages or around 1500 B.C.
Well Using multiple articles to get good facts I’m getting the information for the attackk from many articlues but i feel this one fits best. I need article “Pearl Harbor” I can sum up the attack. “The attack began at about 7:55 a.m. A total of nineteen ships were wrecked.” The attack was planned out into two stages. It started at 7:55 a.m. destroying nineteen ships. The USS Arizona was one ship that accounted for almost half the deaths in pearl harbor.
In 2004 in Indonesia a 9.0 earthquake hit and created a tsunami that killed about 250,00 people and the author Richard Lewis recreaded the story in the killing sea because he is interested in the mysterious ocean. First on page 48 the narrator said “for as far as Ruslan could see, meulaboh had become a lake, clogged with floating debris”. this is true because meulaboh was one of the first places that the tsunami hit so all the ocean water was there and went through many cities and destroyed pretty much everything there.throughout the book Ruslan finds dead bodies and so did many of the rebels, it said that on page 49 the narrator said”across the way, ruslan can see dozens of bodies crumpled on second floor stairs of the shopping mall.” because of the tsunami, about 250,000 people had died so there would be many dead bodies everywhere and inside of every building, but especially in the shopping mall because people like to go to the mall so there would be a lot of people there. Then on page 18 the narrator said”from up top came peter exited cry.”hey, the reefs are drying up! there 's fish flopping fish around!”” in meulaboh,before the tsunami hit the reef dried up and groups of people were just standing there looking at the reef and there actually was fish flopping around, but then the tsunami hit and killed all of the tourists that were just standing there.richard Lewis accurately represented the tragedy of the tsunami in Indonesia and added a few characters that made
In the ten years I hope I am not sick of the sea and and still be as exited as I am today in exploring the opportunities that I can seek out to be successful in the field. What I look forward to in college education at the academy learning how everything works on the ship and learning about navigation, marine life, cargo handling skills and etc. The Marine Transportation program at the USMMA is a combination of nautical science and maritime business management. I think getting a degree in science and business will be something that interests me and that I look forward to.In sports I also look forward to because they have a swimming program it is something that has been apart of my life for a very long time and its gotten me through a lot of things in my life . In my education I look forward to meeting new people making new friends and finding people that have the same interests as me and I think it will be an insightful and enjoyable society to advance my studies and expand my horizons.
Geographical distribution of where fossils were found also casts doubt on tectonic vicariance. Tectonic vicariance relies on the overlap between area cladograms and fragmentation history. The discrepancy between these two factors does however, not imply that oceanic dispersal is the answer, because there are many different methods of dispersal. Many studies have tried to prove the disjunct distribution of taxa to be due to vicariance alone, but sister taxa separated by an ocean can be explained by an old vicariance event or recent oceanic dispersal, but in most of these cases the molecular divergence is too small to be explained by vicariance. Studies using fossils showed that most plant species in New Zealand is due to oceanic dispersal.
It involves high-pressure injections of water and chemicals into rock formations, which in turn release natural gas (Thompson, “Hydraulic Fracturing Should Be Banned”). However, fracking can result in many negative outcomes. For instance, scientists who conducted the earthquake study for Geology discovered that not only did fracking cause the biggest earthquake in Oklahoma, but it also caused more earthquakes in states that hardly experienced any seismic activity (“Wastewater Injection Spurred Biggest Earthquake Yet, Says Study,” The Earth Institute Columbia University). In fact, quakes have hit so frequently in Oklahoma, that state and oil regulators decided to shut down five disposal wells due to the increasing number of earthquakes in a city named Cushing (“Oil Regulators Shut Down Two Disposal Wells After Earthquakes Near Cushing”, State Impact: NPR). If fracking is capable of causing temblors as powerful as a 5.7-magnitude, it may be capable of inducing other massive earthquakes in the future.
After a tsunami, a large wall of water follows behind it and takes many objects with it back to the ocean. What damage did the Boxing Day tsunami cause? The Boxing Day tsunami destroyed parts of Indonesia, Shri Lanka, India, Thailand, Maldives, and Somalia killing about 230,000 people. It happened in 2004 on Dec. 26. The approximated cost to fix the
In 2007, Dr Christian Klose, from Columbia’s Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory presented a new theory that the earthquake was prompted by two hundred years of coalmining. Dr Klose theorised that because of coalmining, stress in the Earth’s crust started to change and over time this caused the tremor. Another Australian report pointed out other factors that may have contributed to the unfortunate natural disaster. It mentioned that minor tremors in the nearby Hunter Valley region prior to the Newcastle Earthquake might have created a fault line that led to the earthquake. Australian Geo-scientists disagree with Dr Klose’s theory and say that because the epicentre of the earthquake was too deep underground, it is not likely to the caused by extensive coalmining.
