Up to 40,000 feet buildings collapsed, and homes were destroyed up to ½ of a mile of both towns. The total number of houses that were there before the atomic explosion was 50,000, and the total houses and buildings that were destroyed were 19,587, but 30,413 were undamaged. The souls of people who died because of the bomb in Nagasaki 135,000 and the total number of people who died in Hiroshima was 64,000. People died into dust with the nuclear chemicals that were impossible to survive if you were too close to the bomb. People who survived still have nuclear acid in their bodies that can give them numerous amounts of cancer when they grow up if they survived still in their young age.
In movies and media, building explosion being portrayed as an incredible sight to see however, what most people do not remember that it is a horrific experience that forever imprint onto the viewers. In 1886, a cigar box manufacture unexpectedly caught in an explosion that injured many young man, woman, and children. During 1880s factories are made up of large brick house that consisted of multiple stories high with big windows as the source of light. While workers and business owners knew that the working conditions are not safe, there were not many policy in America to help the workers during this time period. The Gilded Age era begins from 1870s and lasted to 1890s in the United States.
The rain also flooded the subways. The subways were completely full of water. The subways were still not in use months after the hurricane because it cracked the concrete in the subways. The cost of all the damages amounted up to 75 million United States dollars (Dunbar, 2013). There were at least 117 deaths in the United States as a cause of hurricane sandy 40 of the fatalities were caused by flooding.
Lastly Dwyer and Flynn provide logical reasoning for why there were struggles with the evacuation process and why there was poor communiction between police, firefighters and co workers and citizens. "The 1938 code had required that the columns of tall buildings be able to stand against fire for four hours; the new code reduced that to three hours. For the floors, the earlier code had demanded three hours of fire protection, the new code cut that to two" (pg. 106) This quote shows how the bulding was getting more and more weak and unsteady through out the years with less fire protection which means the building is not capable to undergo huge amounts of fire and smoke from the attack. Which explains why the building collapsed just a couple hours after the attack.
One source tells me that her friend's house was on conflagration when they arrived home from the store they called 911 emedelity. The trees in the forests were scorched all wildlife was gone.6 farms were burned all of the crops are gone. Since it was really dry the rule was that you can't shoot any guns over there because
Thousands of people died, the city was wrecked and fires were set aflame. The earthquake happened at 5:13 in the morning on April 20, 1906. The earthquake destroyed the city hall and many more buildings that took a long time to build. It had killed many people and started oil leaks. The leaks led to fires that blazed upon the city and killed many more.
According to U.S. estimated, 60,000 to 70,000 people were killed by the bomb, 140,000 were injured many more were made homeless as a result of the bomb and some of them were missing. A very dangerous radiation reached over 100,000 kilometers. In the blast, thousands of people died instantly. The city is completely destroyed, there are 90,000 buildings and 60,000 of them were completely destroyed by the explosion. In all, approximately 33% or ⅓ of Hiroshima is completely destroyed.
As mentioned in Napoleons’ Button (Couteur and Burreson, 2003), ever since the discovery of penicillin, wound infection declines, saving plenty of lives, especially during the World War 2. The rapid advancement of drugs has indeed come a long way and even revolutionized the world. Drugs such as paracetemol helps to subside one’s fever and provide pain relief. On the other hand, drugs that are widely used illegally such as cocaine would be detrimental to one’s personal health when consumed. In any case, the mere existence of drugs is good in nature. It is how drugs are used that determines if drugs are beneficial or harmful. Although there are cases where taking drugs has its consequences, it is undeniable about the benefits that drug has brought.
It was not uncommon for women at this time to work in factories with many working in ammunition factories. The women who worked in the ammunition factories played an important role in the war effort by doing some of the most important work (Kim). These women worked extremely hard and it was argued that they put their lives in danger almost as much as the men enlisted in the war. They worked long shifts, typically 10-12 hours a day, working with highly-explosive materials (Munitions Factories). Most, if not all, factory jobs required women to operate machinery which was heavy and dangerous, causing many injuries. The dangers of working in factories gave a great perspective of what it was like to do a man’s job, but women weren’t afraid. They desired equality and
1. While most believe that the assassination of the Arch-Duke Francis Ferdinand was the sole event that caused the out break of World War I, there were many other underlying events that created the trouble between the major European powers. (section 25-1, Spielvogel). One of the major underlying causes was nationalism. While most thought that every nationality having their own nation-state would help people get along it did nothing but cause even more competition. (Section 25-1a, Spielvogel) On top of that, not all nationalities were granted their own state. The Slavics and Serbians are examples of this. (25-1a, Spielvogel) A Bosnian activist that worked for the Serbian terrorist organization called the black hand was actually who assassination Francis Ferdinand, proving that this was a major role in creating the war.
“European nations began World War 1 with a glamorous vision of war, only to be psychologically shattered by the realities of the trenches. The experience changed the way people referred to the glamour of battle; they treated it no longer as a positive quality but as a dangerous illusion.” –Virginia Postrel. World War 1 was one of the most horrendous, life shifting wars in history that began in Europe and lasted for 4 years (1914 - 1918) besides affecting 9 million lives. The world was so destructive due to the intensity of the fighting and the deadly weapons. It was the first war in history to involve too many countries, and as a result, World War 1 became known as the Great War. In my opinion, nationalism wasn’t the main cause of the war.
