The government should use invasive pat-downs and body scans to ensure passenger safety. As the years go on, the debating on how body scans are unnecessary how we pat downs are an invasion to the people 's privacy. Though there are many doubts as to whether the pat-downs are lawful they are still necessary. Terrorist threats have been happening since September 11, 2001, the terrorist threat within airports are ever so high. Airports these days are on constant high alert and searching passengers before boarding an aircraft is almost necessary with the constant threat of terrorist carrying dangerous items.
To begin with following both of these tragedies they brought the world closer together and gave the world a sense of security and gratefulness of our freedom. There were many similarities that conjoined these events; which were the United States fear of immigrants and dissidents, production declines and stock market decline after 9/11, improved technology to locate terrorist and terrorism activity, and lastly deportation and arrests of alien citizens. After the Red Scare many Americans had become afraid of alien citizens and some even went as far as to hurt and shun them out of our world. The same thing happened following 9/11; after the attacks many Americans had become petrified of and began to harass and put out hate crimes against South
Likewise, after the events of 9/11, racial profiling at airports shows the inequity towards different cultures. The unfair treatment towards different people in both these events show how humans can be cruel towards others in order to save themselves. Despite these two time periods being far apart, the ideas of human nature do not differ. Based on the Salem Witch Trials and racial profiling after 9/11, one can conclude that human nature is altered by fear. People tend to fear the unknown, jump to conclusions and are easily manipulated by fear.
The migrant crisis which is making headlines all over the world has left Europeans divided on the issue. Some are eager to welcome the growing number of migrants into their countries while others are shying away, afraid of what dangers can be hidden among the migrants. With eight hundred thousand migrants ready to enter Germany, and many more on their way not everyone is ready to accept them with open arms. The fear that ISIS may be infiltrating the migrants by various ways, such as paying for their travel, giving false hope, and plain brainwashing is one reason for the scare. Many Europeans deny or ignore this possibility which can unfortunately lead to a growing number of terrorist attacks through ISIS.
In recent attacks of terrorism throughout Europe, security questions have surfaced and at the heart of this topic is whether or not a Burkini should be permitted at the beach. When countries face acts of terrorism, they often begin to stereotype and make irrational decisions. When the bomb on Hawaii happened, Americans imprisoned Japanese Americans. In recent times, mostly after 911, many Muslims were discriminated and we began to have more precautions on airlines. Often times women are discriminated for wearing too little clothing; however in this case, women are wearing too much clothes.
According to International Civil Aviation Organisation both domestic and international plane traffic will probably increas, which means number of the people who suffer from Aviophobia may be grown (5). Fear of flying is broad issue and it may concern a one-quarter of a human population (6). Aviophobia sometimes may be associated with other phobias like claustrophobia or acrophobia. "Claustrophobia is a fear of tight spaces while acrophobia is a fear of heights. Being on an aircraft such as an airplane or helicopter provide the perfect setting for these phobias take place."

One of it’s most recognized platforms would be the news, available on our smart phones, on television and in the papers, making it very accessible. Due to the fact that majority of news is about crimes and deaths and other unfortunate events, a very negative outlook on the world is introduced. With such an overwhelming supply of negative reports, fear starts to build up in us. For instance, with the recent disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines aircraft MH370, and the shooting down of their MH17, the fear of flying has been instilled in many people, especially with Malaysian Airlines. (The Times of India, Flying Fears on the Rise After MH370) The knowledge and proof that something of this sort is possible and could happen at anytime can frighten many.
Literature review Alien invasive species In today’s world, many areas have become urbanized and natural areas have become fragmented due to human interference (Alston and Richardson 2006). This in turn has caused many interfaces between the urbanized world and the natural landscape (Alston and Richardson 2006) which most of the time have negative impacts on the natural environments (Alston and Richardson 2006) such as pollution and invasion of exotic species. A species has to pass a few criteria before it can be considered an alien invasive species, not just for the reasoning that the species was not originally from that area (Richardson et al. 2000). A species is considered to be an exotic species once it has been brought into an area that it was not established in previously by humans, either by accident or intentionally (Richardson et al.
The aviation disaster of 1977 was undoubtedly a traumatic experience that highlighted the dangers of aviation to many. Tenerife’s air traffic controller, Pan Am, and KLM’s suffered through several small errors that led up to this disaster that headed to the loss of many lives. In this essay, the miscommunications coupled with the uncontrollable weather plays a role in explaining the disaster and how it was handled. In specific terms, David Grayson rationalizes that this catastrophe had several small errors and even unknown quirks that made the incident more so disastrous than it could have been. Consequently, the disaster of 1977 could be viewed as a worst case scenario because of it’s unknown quirks, small errors that could have been fixed
Authors, Nicole Persico and Petra Todd, discussed the issue of passenger profiling at airports across the country. Airport security officers follow specific protocols in randomly selecting someone to search the airport. However, due to the events of September 11, 2001, profiling procedures at the nation 's airport has increased, This change resulted in some unethical profiling, which led to ethical implication such as discrimination lawsuits. The authors also addressed the changes is the development of a computer-assisted passenger prescreening system (CAPPS II), which is a tool to select passengers for screening. Under the CAPPS II system, travelers will be automatically identified, complete background checks will be completed, and other
America along with the other parts of the world have changed since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Our whole security system has changed to become suspicious of everyone. Traveling out of the country and even within the United States can be a hassle with having proper ID, passport and searches. Passengers can not have a certain amount of liquid in their bags if they are carrying their bags onto the plane. The arrival time is now 2-3 hours before the flight time in past time it was only one hour.

Since the September 11th, 2001, the nation as well as the world has changed drastically. The curtain blocking the first world from the things going on in the Middle-East has risen. Stereotypes have been created and are often enacted against the innocent and fellow neighbors. But this is not the only instance of labels; labels have been placed on just about everything and often seem hurtful. Of course, these labels have helped in minute ways by preventing a small percentage of attacks and establishing a mental safeguard.
During Barack Obama’s two terms as president of the United States, he has taken many executive actions. A lot of these have been controversial and led to backlash that he was overstepping his bounds. Most recently, President Obama announced the measures he’s going to take in order to help fight gun violence. He has already received criticism from many in the GOP, who claim these actions are not justified and he is infringing on the liberty of many Americans. These actions are warranted, because the gun violence epidemic puts many Americans in danger, and President Obama has the right to take actions to protect the security of American citizens, so long as the actions do not infringe on their rights.
