They held the highest population in all and every camp. In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”.They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
These terms soon turned parents into a troop of angry citizens that demanded justice and answers to their accusations. In accordance with David Scott, author of the article “Virginia Mc Martin Dies at 88; Figure in Case on Child Abuse”, it was suggested that this letters contaminated the case from the beginning. In the letter, they could find the name of Raymond Buckey causing hysteria among the children’s parents. Five employees of the daycare were taken into custody and charged with over 120 counts of child abuse that in the end turned to 321 charges involving 49 children. The news of the case soon spread throughout the country.
The entire tragedy occurred in only eleven minutes, where he had entered four classrooms and shot all but two of his victims multiple times. The custodian, Rick Throne, ran through the untouched hallways alerting classrooms about the armed intruder. Lanza attempted to shoot almost every person he encountered and entered every room he could get access to except the first room available when walking through the main doors of Sandy Hook. That classroom happened to have a black sheet of paper covering the window from the prior lockdown drill that happened weeks earlier and it blocked any outside sources from viewing the inside which Adam Lanza seemed to overlook. That benefitted Kaitlin Roig’s classroom from obtaining an attack, thus, saving fourteen students from the exposure of the
CH4 traps the suns heat around 20 times more than CO2 (one website says 100 times more in every five years while another says it’s 100 times more per year so I wasn’t sure which one to go with). Although most of the carbon that’s released will be CO2, since methane is so good at trapping heat it’s been foretold “that it would trap about as much heat as the carbon dioxide would.” This means that rather than trying to just increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the air we should also, perhaps even more so, cut down on methane emissions. 7) There are two calculations. Due to certain activities that emit carbon it’s been estimated that the melting permafrost roughly equals 15% of those emissions. However that estimate was an understatement.
When we breathe in radon gas, the toxic particles actually stick to our lungs and have the ability to alter our cells. The EPA’s acceptable level of radon gas is hundreds of times higher than the acceptable levels of carcinogens in our food and beverages. The new law does not require mitigation be completed for homes with unsafe levels, but only that the home be tested before a sale. Consider how much time your family spends in the basement and lower levels of the house where radon exposure is highest. Do you or your loved ones sleep on a lower level of the house in a radon hotspot?
There was so much going on during this tragic situation that it became more of a recovery mission. “There is no doubt that the school had ample room to accommodate such personnel. Yet medical responders who rushed to sandy hook elementary school upon receiving word of the tragedy were denied entry to the school and forced to set up primary and secondary triages off school grounds and wait for the injured to be brought to them (Tracy).” This makes sense because the majority of the victims were dead upon arrival. There was an outrageous amount of concerned parents and interested news crews surrounding the elementary school campus, moving the paramedics to the fire station gave them an area that was cleared and much more convenient for
The police had attack dogs, there were bombs exploded, and four little black girls were killed at a church all in a little over a week. Birmingham jails were full, and police were concerned they weren't going to be able to contain the protesters and it resulted in them using water hoses on the mobs of people injuring many people. The protest in Birmingham left so much impact "President John F. Kennedy would later say, "The events in Birmingham... have so increased the cries for equality that no city or state or legislative body can prudently choose to ignore them."" (PBS,
This is like Odysseus because he was extremely depressed and when trapped by Calypso, had nothing to look forward to as well. King was arrested over twenty times for his protests against racial discrimination. He received many life threatening phone calls and his house was bombed and then set on fire. Happening at the wrong time, this could have severely injured if not killed King’s wife and children. J. Edgar Hoover, the first director of the FBI agency claimed that King had to be the “most notorious liar in the country.” King was stabbed by an African-American woman while he was signing his newly released book.
The Nazi’s removed the civil of the Jews, and this greatly affected the Jewish children. There was more than 1.2 million Jewish children that were murdered during this time. One of the first laws that affected children greatly was the Law Against Overcrowding In German Schools and Universities. They
Luckily, a Kent State professor talked them out of it. He begged them! Photographs of the dead students/protestors at Kent State were exhibited in newspapers and periodicals worldwide amplifying the sentiment against the United States’ invasion of Cambodia and the Vietnam War. The shootings led to 450 college campuses closing across the United States. Shortly after the Kent State shootings, a banner was hung out of a window at New York University stating “They Can’t Kill Us All!” On May the 8th, eleven people were bayoneted at the University of New Mexico and shortly after that 100,000 people demonstrated in Washington, D.C.
