It was one of the leading causes of death during World War I and soldiers weren’t the only ones to be affected by it. In this novel, it showed that Maisie Dobbs and many others had some type of shell shocked and some were affected more than others. Many of the soldiers will live the rest of lives at The Retreat and many others will have never made it to The Retreat. If everybody could have had some type of treatment, the soldiers wouldn’t probably have been so psychologically disturbed. Jacqueline Winspear was the author of this great novel, Maisie
Just like UCR, NIBRS is a volunteer based report so the data presented in the report are not consistent with the amount of crimes occurring from a day-to-day basis. Human error is also a cause to incorrect data input that can result in false impression of crime statistics. Also the amount of states that adopt the NIBRS system is not adequate enough to justify a national report unlike UCR, which consist of more states. With the adoption of NIBRS many departments drop the system due to the training and resources needed to report accurate reports, this makes finding crime trends
With disillusionment came the thought that everything that many people had learned throughout life such as how life should be lived, how human beings should be treated by one and other, and even proper manners were being thought of so that they were meaningless, “Someday, perhaps , the ten years which followed the war may aptly be known as the Decade of Bad Manners”, (Doc A, Allen). Something else that gives an example of how disillusionment affected how people acted was that when soldiers came back from the war, normal civilian life couldn’t compare to life in the war where every second was filled with adrenaline. So when soldiers came back to lead civilian lives some became dysfunctional alcoholics, and some went to parties every chance they got so that the need for excitement could be somewhat satisfied,”A whole generation had

From the disasters that happen once in a lifetime to those we face every day, a person may think that these things will not happen to them but thinking that the unthinkable won’t happen does not help if it does. The truth remains that in its occurrence, whether natural, manmade or technological, a vast number of people are vulnerable to its many effects.

This project was a lot harder then my family and I ever expected it to be. At first we thought it would be good and we would feel better about not wasting and not having as much trash. But after a couple of days we noticed that we couldn’t do a lot of things we normally do like wipe our hands on a napkin or use a straw to drink at a resturaunt. We as a whole had to make a lot of changes like making our foods the night before and bringing clean towels with us everywhere we went. This project has really made us open our eyes to see what we were actually doing to hurt our environment just by going through our daily routine.
Hurricane Katrina shift the position of the Department of Homeland Security from making natural disasters an equally as important as terrorism. This even showed that disaster planning requires a great deal of collaboration. The Department of Homeland Security who swallowed up FEMA where not quick to react to Hurricane Katrina because all their focus was spend on planning for a prevent terrorist attacks. The failure of the disaster response system resulted in over 1,200 lives lost in Louisiana and Mississippi. FEMA failed to work closely with its State and local counterparts and communications between these partners and the public were strained at best.

There were several long term impacts caused by Nevado Del Ruiz some being: loss of 50 schools facilities along with teachers and staff, 2 hospitals, 4,000 houses, and 6,000
In the book it states “ After all the trouble and risk we undertook to get the money, it became useless, we would have been less hungry if we had stayed at the village instead of walking” ( Ismael 2007). This reveals how hard it will be to find food for them to eat and water to drink. DIsease and hunger would find them faster than fresh food and water.

People in most of Mesopotamia didn’t help create the laws, Hammurabi and Shamash did. Punishments for the people were unfair and ended many lives or ruined lives because they made one mistake. Everyone didn’t receive the same punishments as other people. Although Hammurabi’s Code did protect the weak, there were more problems with the laws than there were good. However, government nowadays, learned from Hammurabi’s mistakes.
