Furthermore, the United States should do more to compensate the families of those impacted by internment because the recompense provided initially was minimal and should be considered an affront to the memory of the victims. Prior to World War II, the 127,000 Japanese-Americans along America’s west coast (Japanese American Relocation and Internment Camps) were considered just another immigrant group coming to America searching for a better life. However, with the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, this perception soon saw a drastic change. The attack on the US Naval base on December 7th, 1941 left many casualties in its wake.
Larson not only blames the sinking of this ship upon the submarine that sunk the ship, but also he spies who withheld information about another safe route the ship could have used. Another claim was that because the cruiser had to take on passengers from another ship, The Cameronia, the ship was then delayed for about two days, and could not continue on the original course time, so you could say they ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Another major problem on this ship was that the workers were not fully executing the drills they were instructed to do on a daily basis, and not instructing the passengers to learn the procedure either. On page 208, it states, “ Passengers had been instructed to keep their
On December 7, 1941, there was a surprise military attack on the United States naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, called the ‘Pearl Harbor attack’. The attack was aimed for the United States from Japan to prevent America from doing any harm. The event caused many deaths and the destruction of multiple fleets. Americans were scared for another attack and soon, Japanese-Americans were the target of their hate for being related to the Japanese. The attack on Pearl Harbor negatively affected the lives of Japanese-Americans in the United States during the 1940s.
They were very confident that the Titanic could not sink because of its massive size and well designed hull. But it actually came down to the operators of the ship that would be its downfall. While some people 's ignorance brought upon pain and suffering, it also brought out the thoughtfulness and bravery of others. The Titanic is said to have been brought down by a huge iceberg that struck the hull of the ship, yet what if it was really the people commanding the boat that ended its life? She left the harbor on her maiden voyage to New York on April 10,1912.
The written work of Eri Hotta entitled Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy, narrated the succession of events which took place between Japanese officials and leaders which led to the attack of Pearl Harbor. It showed the political unrest and civic instability of Japan that resulted into the bombing. Eventually, such attack was not condoned by the military forces of the United States and they countered the aggression by also bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thousands of lives were lost and destroyed. Accordingly, the “ Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the Japanese officials who expressed reservations about going to war” (Timms).
“All these planes and crashes keep replaying in my mind everyday, that day will always be remembered as one of the most tragic attacks on America” (“Aaron Tveit”). September 11th was a very horrific day filled with sadness and grief. Terrorism then became a main priority to keep an eye on and making sure the United States stays safe. On this very date four planes were hijacked and forced to crash in specific locations. September 11th has changed the landscape of America by improving National Security, conducting better immigration laws, and the rebuilding of the community after the whole massacre.
He also wrote to his mother: “So the war has begun, our brave men will surely be victorious over the foe.” In contrast, the Russian navies were “all sunk in a single day in the battle of Tsushima.” Nicholas II still did not awaken; he even showed his pugnacity to his own people on the Bloody Sunday. On January 9, 1905, thousands of protesters were killed by Nicholas II’s infantries. After that day, Nicholas wrote on his diary: “Serious disorders took place in Petersburg when the workers tried to get into the Winter Palace.

Fate or other forces had interfered with the plans of the White Star Line, and arranged a meeting with the Titanic and the iceberg. Now, when one takes into consideration the delay of the completion of the Titanic, owing to the accident of its sister ship, the Olympic, which also caused the White Star Line to postpone the original date of the Titanic’s maiden voyage by three weeks, it is clear that the Titanic’s troubles started long before it set sail on its maiden voyage, and the curse, which was supposedly the starting point of the disaster was just a link in the chain of events. Because of the significant structural damage, which was done to the Olympic, materials, manpower and other resources were diverted from completing the construction of the Titanic to repairing the Olympic.

Captain Smith was going too fast and should of slowed down. They spend a lot of money on Titanic and they even said it was an unsinkable ship so then why did it sink?
What the troops believed would just be a rehearsal turned into a real combat situation. The many mistakes made during Exercise Tiger showed the troops exactly what not to do during the real invasion of Normandy. If Exercise Tiger was never carried out, I believe that the troops could have made the same serious mistakes on D-Day, and the death toll would have been significantly greater. The over 600 men that died during the exercise did not die in vain. If not for the exercise, the men could have been totally unprepared for the invasion of Normandy, and they could have lost thousands of more troops.
This shocking and devastating event would lead to the Supreme Court Case known as Muller v. Oregon of 1908 in which the Supreme Court reversed previous ruling and limited the woman’s workday to ten hours. This is often seen as a first step in labor reform. However, it is a very small step which required disaster and death in order to be passed. This event signifies a change in the relationship between government and labor in favor of the working
Due to this, the children might be exposed to many different serious health problems. Several lawsuits have been in place because of this situation. The Jungle, written by Upton Sinclair, is about Jurgis Rudkus and his family, who are immigrants that move to Chicago from Lithuania in search of a better life.

Fire: Fire is another example of a risk when you are working with electronic equipment so it is important that you know what actions you have to take to prevent the fire from happening. Two ways you can prevent this are, stopping the components from overheating and preventing electrical problem e.g. problem with the hardware or problem with a plug. To stop a fire you should always have a fire extinguisher nearby so that it can stop this life and death matter. Electrostatic discharge (ESD): electrostatic discharge is another example of a risk this is when an electrically charged object meets each other by causing sparks. This can be dangerous because it can cause a fire or it can electrocute the user if they are near the components.
Joe’s accident must be reported to OSHA within eight hours. OSHA will also be looking for any type of documentation regarding safety measures and that particular area where Joe’s death occurred.
