When reading, Why Everest?, by Guy Moreau, it says, “...may have faced bad weather,...struggled up the icy slopes of the ‘death zone.’‘A person cannot survive in this zone for more than two days because of the lack of oxygen and the extreme temperatures.’” Guy tells the reader that severe weather issues can happen at any time, and we have to be prepared for when it does get alarming, and we have to take precautions. Also, in the passage, Why Everest?, by Guy Moreau, it states, “... this problem has been made by the large number of climbers who want to conquer Everest….Climbers are delayed and can suffer exposure and use their precious supplies of oxygen.” This tells us that people are scared when they know that the weather can change dramatically at anytime, and loads of people who rather go on these adventures knowing rescue workers are there to help, if you anything were to happen. Moreover, we know that the weather can shift from sunshine to blizzard, just like that. But what people aren't sure about is, are rescue workers going to save them when they get stuck in a situation where weather plays a huge role in that. They don't get the certainty some people want and need, to feel
Every winter sport has a big risk of hurting your head. “Helmets reduce the incidence of any head injury by 30-50%” according to Jasper Shealy, professor emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, N.Y. When you are on the mountain, you reach higher altitudes. The UV rays are much more harmful then if you were at the base. So when the sun reflects off the snow into your eyes, that 'll hurt.
Sherpas are the ones who assist tourists on their way up the MT. Everest and also help them return if the westerners are not fit to continue the journey up everest. But after all their hard work the nepalese gov have not treated the sherpas with the respect they deserve. Sherpas have to face issues everyday they work on MT. Everest and are underappreciated by many on the mountain.
The tone that Krakauer conveys in his text includes: hopefulness, anxiety, frustration, pensiveness, and sorrow. A few of the word choices he chooses are intensely, happiness, and expectations. At the exposition of the story, Krakauer is hopeful that he will be able to climb the mountain. During his climb becomes really focused yet a sense of happiness when he says, “By and by, your attention becomes so intensely focused that you no longer notice the raw knuckles, the cramping thighs, the strain of maintaining nonstop concentration…. At such moments, something like happiness stirs in your chest, but it isn’t the sort of emotion you want to lean on very hard.” (133) These sentences allow the reader to understand how he is feeling and what he is going through.
I believe the sport of football will be changed forever for the safety of the players. I feel like the new precautions are already helping reduce head injuries. The NFL needs to follow the same concussion protocol as the lower levels of the sport. THe sport could be much safer and it should be much safer. Players deserve more protection and it should be much easier to play the sport without having any
We suffer more injuries and more concussions than any other sport. People or some may look at us like we’re nothing. It’s hard to throw a touchdown pass but try throwing and catching a body before it crashes. What makes it even more dangerous is that we don’t have face masks. Put yourself in our position and see how long you can last.
It is vital for modern day troops to be able to fight in any condition, to be able to defend and have advantages over enemies. The Mongols were ruthless, vicious, and very successful in their time. Conquering a vast amount of land and people, proving that they were the very best. However they did not just “burn, kill, destroy, pillage, and leave” as most initially think. The Mongols were not just ruthless warriors and accomplished much more that should be recognized.
More than 4,000 people went through the hell of climbing Mount Everest. Even though those many people attempted to climb Mount Everest, more than 290 people have died in the process. For being more than 29,000 feet above sea level, of course, there are many issues that come with it. First, the oxygen becomes thinner and thinner the higher climbers go. Second, the conditions that climbers are being put at are atrocious.
The path concept is a good metaphor for life because the concept relates to so many scenarios in life. A path may be dangerous just as a person's choices may be dangerous to his body soul and spirit. (Proverbs 7:18-23) Some paths seem exciting and adventurous to take. Mount Everest is a mountain in Nepal, which though many have died trying to climb her, she is not lacking for numerous more who attempt their way up her steep paths. A young man may be enticed to take a more devastating path to his soul than Mount Everest might be to his body.
Mount Everest deserves respect, however, people lack the knowledge behind the climb. Mount Everest is torture for some and it take great ability to accomplish such mountain. The mountain is a physical challenge but a mental challenge as well. Few people lack the mental part when hitting
As climbers get higher in altitude digestion begins to slow until the intestines become hypoxic and can no longer send nutrients to the muscles that desperately need them. For this reason the climbers must eat only small portions when ascending to the next campsite. As they ascend even higher their bodies have trouble digesting protein and they begin to crave more sugar. As for water, it is impractical to carry with them so they melt snow off the mountain for drinking. This is becoming more problematic as more people are coming to climb Everest than ever.
Teens can not really exaggerate a concussion because they can be life threatening depending on the severity of the concussion. Another group of experts say the concussion protocol stuff is a waste of money because they think teen concussions are not that serious. The concussion protocol actually helps save a teen 's life. The solution to this problem is to make an item used in sports such as a mouthguard or helmet to tell if they have a concussion or not and the severity. For instance, in a football game when a player takes a hard blow to the head, then says “coach I am fine put me back in the game” the side of his helmet will say he has a concussion and the severity of it.
It was a risk to go through Indian Territory but it is the fastest and best-calculated route to go on. The weather and Indians make it very hard to get there alive and successfully. Re-upping could possibly kill me, cause me to be sick, and miss out on the growth of my family. I have enough money from the first cattle drive that I could live off of it for about a year. Re-upping would be dangerous and I could just find
