The ship was going from Southampton, U.K. to New York City. Titanic was often called “The Unsinkable.” The ship costed $7.5 million (over $400 million today) to build. The Titanic could have had been more prepared for its upcoming maiden voyage, if the builders were prepared for what the possibilities were. The Titanic sank because, obviously, the ship hit an iceberg. There is more to the story than that.
The Titanic was beautiful and the biggest ship that was ever built, and almost everybody knows its story. According to Alan Boyle in the website, “10 causes of titanic tragedy”, the Titanic was designed and commissioned by White Star Line(1). Boyle also claim that Titanic wight over 45000 ton(1). In the video “10 Captivating Facts About the Titanic Sinking”, by the group “World 5 List”, it assumed that Titanic length is 206.06 meters, it’s breathes 32 meters, and it’s height is 28.19 meter(0:09). What a gigantic ship Titanic was!
My most preferred myth, Demeter, shows Zeus being a good god and causing a positive impact on those around him. Consequently, it is my firm opinion that Zeus serves a favorable role in Greek mythology. Many famous Greek myths, including Kronos and Zeus, show Zeus being a satisfactory god. The myth states, “They came of age and, when the time was right, they agreed to help fulfill the prophecy that would unseat Kronos from his throne” (Kronos and Zeus 1). Kronos was a terrible titian, he was very selfish and worried more about his power than his own children.

Gilgamesh Hero: Not only are the gods distinctive in the two stories, but the heroes of the stories also show contradicting moral views. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, the hero of the flood happens to be Utnapishtim because of his supposedly prized traits. While the reason Utnapishtim is selected by the gods is not fully understood, the gods’ actions hint to the possibility that it is only by his enduring loyalty that he is chosen to survive, and not by his commendable character. Ea’s logic behind giving Utnapishtim the dream is to reveal light on the situation. This is seen when Ea is stating, “I caused the exceedingly devout one to see dreams, he heard the decision of the gods' than as 'the exceedingly wise one” (11.
Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of The Lusitania, is a narrative non-fiction thriller written by Eric Larson, describing the final, and disastrous voyage of the British ocean liner, the Lusitania. Similarly to the Titanic, the Lusitania was thought to be unsinkable, and those who voyaged within it had extreme confidence in the ship that eventually contributed to its downfall. The sheer size of the ship, and its speed and capability to exterminate smaller vessels at ease immediately dispelled any thought of it being a target of war. The story takes place in the early 1900 's, when the war between Britain and Germany during World War 1 had just begun. There was an agreement that non-military ships could not be targeted by either side.
Because heroes care so much about their pride and glory, they perform an act of hubris before they meet their tragic fate. The term hubris refers to the act of extreme pride in a foolish manner. Lastly, all the Greek heroes are decedents of the gods, whether it be one of the major gods or minor deities. Heroes have some form of divine relative that gives them an advantageous connection during the ancient Greek era. These traits merge together to create a traditional Greek Hero.
At the end of the play Brutus is referred to as the noblest Roman of them all. I do not agree with this statement. Yes, Brutus’s intentions were for the greater good of Rome, because Brutus felt if Caesar was crowned he was going to take over Rome and do some serious damage to Rome as they all knew it. However, I believe if Brutus was so noble he would not have killed Caesar who was actually his life long friend. I believe in order for a person to be considered noble they should also show to be loyal as well.
What does one think of when the name Titanic is said? That it was one of perhaps the most tragic events to have ever occurred on the sea? What is certain however is that it is one of the most remembered historical events to have ever occurred on the ocean and it is possible that the words “criminal negligence” come to one’s mind however, people look at it most have no idea of the true reasons the Titanic sank and that is why several people over the years have delved into the mystery of what sank the ship God himself could not. Most believe it to be the one accomplishment of a lone iceberg what most do not know is that there was a fire burning in one of the worst areas a fire could have burned. This is no theory for many eyewitness accounts and logs prove this, there are even photos of where the fire had taken place on the starboard side of the ship.
How the Civil War Affected the USA The Civil War is considered to be the most horrific yet influential wars in American History. While the American Revolution revolved around establishing the nation, the Civil War was about deciding the fate of the blossoming nation. But determining the fate of the nation came at a huge cost; approximately 620,000 American citizens lives were tragically lost during the barbarous conflict, which is equivalent to ¼ civilians whom went into combat never returned home. Unfortunately, the gruesome death toll wasn’t the only negative result of the battle. The war resulted in a massive economic cost which came to a staggering $5.2 billion dollars.
Many people believe that success is based on a certain skill or maybe even just luck. In the outliers by malcolm gladwell, Malcolm discusses the theories that there are certain things that affect the success of someone in the long run. I happen to agree with Malcolm on the topic of that everything with success is calculated. It might seem that a person might have long term success because of coincidence, I do not believe that is true. Short term success can be influenced by a luck but long term success implies a lot more.

Above the sea in Europe, Germans threw away innocent citizens of United States and England into a cold, deep sea without a reasonable and unexplainable reason.
