The terrible, sensational accident happened after four days of RMS Titanic’s journey. On April 14, Titanic decided to continue its trip when received a lot of reports of icebergs from other ships. The ship crews thought icebergs are only a piece of cake to Titanic. At about 11:30 p.m. on April 14, a lookout saw an iceberg right ahead of Titanic coming out of a slight haze. Titanic turned sharply to avoid hitting right into the iceberg.
Thousands of people, around 2,200 people to be exact, bought tickets to the Titanic and they either bought first class if they were rich, middle class if they saved up or they just had a good amount of money, or third class which were mostly poor immigrants trying to start a good life in America or Canada. Everyone called the Titanic “unsinkable” but anything’s possible so people should just call it the Titanic instead of “unsinkable” because you never know what’s gonna happen. If people knew that the ship was sinkable maybe they would have a better chance of surviving. On page 22 it says, “Phillips began to send the morse code ‘CQD’ distress call, flashing away and joking as he did it. After all, they knew the ship was ‘unsinkable’.” Phillips was joking as he sent distress calls because he thought it was unsinkable maybe if he, and many others, was serious the ship might’ve been able to
MGM Hotel Fire November 21st 1980 marks one of the worst hotel fires in U.S. history. Today the MGM Grand fire is number 17 on the list of most deadly building fires of all time ( ). The incident was horrific and could have been easily contained if early detection devices, and fire suppression systems were already in place as firefighters had mentioned to the ariteches before construction was complete: also if the construction of electrical components were properly installed. Many lives were lost subsequently due to this fire but important requirements for hotels did come to fruition because of this horrific incident. Which certainly makes this day significant, and marked Nevada as a leader in fire safety regulations and codes.
There was another stop, however, that was not scheduled for, or foreseen, a stop that would be disastrous. Moreover, this stop would be one of the worst of its kind for years to come. This stop would bring the ship to the end of its voyage long before it reaches its New York 's destination. This stop would bring the great ship and some of her passengers to be rested on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. Fate had dealt unkindly with the great ship and its passengers.
In 1901, he purchased Carnegie Steel from Andrew Carnegie for $480 million and combined it with other companies to create “the giant United States Steel Corporation- a $1.4 billion enterprise that controlled almost two-thirds of the nation’s steel production,” becoming the first billion dollar corporation. Among the major investments made, he also assisted the United States economy out of debt and economic issues. In 1907, the country experienced a panic, due to its little-to-no control over the industrial economy. As a resolution to the national issue, “Morgan held a meeting of the country’s top financiers at his New York City home and convinced them to bail out various faltering financial institutions in order to stabilize the markets,” and led Wall Street out of the crisis. He was an ambitious man with a good work ethic and highly business savvy, claiming to “[g]o as far as you can see; when you get there, you'll be able to see farther,” meaning that he was constantly increasing and thriving in his corporation and mainly focused on his affluence.

It took place in Petrograd, the Russian capital at the time, and was supported by 90,000 men and women on strike. These week-long protests began to turn violent, with many demonstrators opening fire and rioting against police officers. In result, Tsar Nicholas had to abdicate his throne for safety precautions and to hopefully subdue his protesters from causing any more harm to the nation’s capital. After he resigned, the Provisional Government issued a set of liberal principles in hopes of westernizing the country. This included improvements to civil rights and freedoms, and the organization of elections for a Constituent Assembly.
London's GDP in 2014 was a staggering $731.2 billion, ranking alongside Tokyo and New York. It's often-dark history helped to pave the way for its modern successes. In 1666, just as London was recovering from the impacts of the Great Plague, the city fell victim to a disastrous fire that engulfed five-sixths of the area. The fire itself was able to spread very quickly due to the fact that all houses in the Stuart era were made of wood. The catastrophic fire which claimed approximately a quarter of London’s population was a huge learning curve for everyone.
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. All of which will be elaborated on in the later. Some quick variations of the theories surrounding the tragic sinking of the great ocean liner are all over at best. Ranging from it being sunk for insurance reasons, which when it comes down to it is odd in and of itself as the theory suggests it was not R.M.S Titanic that sank April 14th but rather her sister ship the Olympic that was sunk instead. In the month of time after her completion and commissioning the Olympic had already had two major collisions which resulted in her needing to be repaired that would have been extremely expensive which is, however why many
