The city had no way of stopping it because this has never happened before so they flooded areas that had been flooded to try to protect other places. During this point there wasn 't much to do except to get your most valuable items and get out. Hurricane Harvey was one of the biggest catastrophic event the U.S has ever seen, the recorded rainfall and the release of the reservoirs were the two biggest factors beside the actual storm itself. The rainfall caused everywhere to over flood all over the city to the point where there wasn 't anything we could do. Also, the reservoirs made the flooding only worse since all the water held up was all released into the bayou’s and the city.
Even without the looming presence of the Dome in the book, the statement remains true. Without a connection to the Internet, getting in contact with others living even a couple miles away can prove difficult, putting people in their own bubble, a significantly smaller bubble of influence than when connected to the Internet. This does not have a disastrous effect on a community, but without the Internet, the spread of cultures, ideas, and friendships is drastically inhibited. However, With the town of Chester’s Mill actually being cut off from the outside world the community struggles to remain connected with people on the other side of the Dome, largely disregarding the troubles that are taking place right on their front doorstep, and regressing from the town’s once civilized nature into something much more primitive and

One of the greatest case studies discussed in class regarding the impact of climate change is the modern day topography of Madagascar. While the initial cause of the desertification of Madagascar was caused by over logging and the exploitation of natural resources, the even further damage was caused by climate change and can be seen as an example of what could hypothetically happen in areas with dying vegetation. There are areas of Madagascar are completely eroded away due to the lack of trees and trees that grow back are immediately cut down again to be used by the population of Madagascar. This erosion has led to desertification of the land. Water that does come in contact with the land is unable to stay in the land because there is no vegetation to catch it - it turns into runoff which leads to landslides and mudslides.
Darfur Darfur is one of many countries on this planet that have a dystopian system, and a dystopia is very common thing. First of all, Darfur became a dystopian country when the Khartoum government neglected the request of help from the civilians of Darfur. A dystopian society is an unbalanced relationship between the government and civilians; Omar al-Bashir and the Khartoum government are the important people of Darfur that are controlling and terrorizing Darfur instilling fear in everyone. One can examine that Omar al- Bashir’s choices were very influencing on Darfur, his impacts had an enormous effect on normal civilians or another nation, and how genres of literature can be used as a tool in educating people about the progression towards
Its squalor, diseases were spread quickly for its environment. During that 12th century era, there wasn 't any medicine that can cure them and of course the people in there will obviously let them die. Realizing and understanding people just let Newgate prison spoil into the worst of the worst. Death was publicly applied and people enjoyed it. From getting cut into piece, burn at state, hung and more that makes the prison, a place where people don’t even want to go near.
Language Proficiency Effects Regarding Immigration People often tend to forget the importance of language in their daily lives. One can only truly understand the importance of a common language when exposed to a scenario where no common language is present. Communication is limited, therefore a sense of belonging is diminished and any daily activity becomes a task. An immigrant with little English proficiency goes through this inconvenience daily. Although the preservation of culture is important, English proficiency is beneficial to an immigrant; it allows for more opportunities to integrate socially and gives the immigrant a stronger sense of belonging and loyalty.

My mom was always by my side through all the emotional, physical and mental abuse. She started taking me to therapy and the therapist diagnosed me with moderate to severe depression.

I, again, was too little to go through this devastation of him having cancer and eventually dying, but being a widow and having her husband die when you still have many years to go has major effects on you and your life. One of them can be your relationship with God. This past semester I asked my grandma this question for my religion class and just from this simple conversation I had with her, I learned a lot about her relationship with God and her faithfulness. “Why do you believe in God?” “I believe in God because when I was going through breast cancer and the death of your grandfather and when I felt alone in those times God was always with me. I might sound weird, but sometimes I just talk to God and I don’t even need a response because I know, deep down in my heart, that he is there for me,” Donna replied getting emotional.
