This belief was also held by the captain and most of the crew which led to the destruction of the Titanic. Even after being warned countless times of icebergs by the Californian, Baldwin revealed that officers disregarded their warnings by ordering them to “shut up, shut up; keep out, I am talking to Cape Race; you are jamming my signals.” In addition, Fowler informed the public that only 53.4% of the passengers on the ship could have been saved if the lifeboats were completely filled up. The iceberg was a huge factor in the sinking of the Titanic; however, because the captain and crew did not pack enough resources for emergencies and disregarded many safety procedures and warnings, the iceberg was not the only cause of the horrible
He was put into a body bag with rocks and thrown into the ocean, sinking without anyone knowing. This was the second death in the novel, but most strange due to him being so little and innocent.

The lack of food is the reason so many colonists died of hunger. The second reason to why so many colonists died was because of occupations. There were too many gentleman in May 1607 and January 1608 that did not want to do any work at all. One surgeon in 1607 and 1608 was not good.
World War I was a horrific event in history. No one on board the Lusitania expected their lives to be ended because of some war that was yet to happen.

First, he argues that the sinking of the USS Cyclops was due to unreliable wireless communication in 1918. This is a pathos appeal because the sinking of the ship has never been explained and failure of communication does not mean a vessel should sink. Secondly, the author uses logos appeal to show that SS Marine Sulphur Queen was prone to get an accident because the vessel was already in deplorable condition and was further compromised when it started to be used in carrying molten sulphur from carrying oil. Thirdly, he argues that the disappearance of NC16002 was due to the plane’s batteries not been fully charged which led to interference with communication during the flight – this line of argument has a logos appeal. Finally, the author also uses logos appeal to explain the disappearance of Flight19 – this happened mainly because of the confusion that Lt. Charles Taylor had put himself in.
Officials, even the president at the time, George W. Bush, was unaware of how bad things were in New Orleans and didn’t know how to deal with something this terrible.
