Waiting for help, Rose took a nap and when she woke up Jack died (James Cameron & Jon Landau 1997). The boat sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and killed 1,503 people and only 705 people survived. There was several actions people could of taken so Titanic wouldn 't sink. 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?
Damage Controlmen have been stripped of there welding Certifications. Baring the men and woman of the Damage controlmen rate from using their welding abilities on ships and small boats is not only a disservice to the Coast Guard but also its members. Since Damage Controlmen are not allowed to weld on vessels they are not able to preform their job in a satisfactory manner, this practice it is not cost efficient and it is resulting in more casualties. Damage Controlmen (DC’s) have been stripped of their welding Certifications they acquired from the Coast Guard because of a few preventable mishaps, due to the lack of following procedures that were already in place and working. Upon completing DC A-School the 3rd Class DC’s are taught the basics
First, it was unimaginable for others to circle the globe at his time. Then, his ships are unseaworthy and his crews are hodgepodge and could not communicate in the same tongue. In this difficult situation Magellan finished his trip and in the long list of history it is difficult to find another figure whose heroism matches Magellan’s. I think this proposal is quibbling and ridiculous. This proposal implies that the difficulties Magellan went through are the reason why he should be considered as a hero.
After one hour the battle ended with Magellan with a sword in his face, and his very few supporters dead. Although Magellan did find his way to get to the Pacific Ocean easier by discovering a strait. He was definitely not loyal to anybody but himself. The reasoning for me not willing to help Magellan when in trouble is because he honestly did not deserve anything he did or accomplished. If I was Ferdinand Magellan I would defiantly regret the past, and what the crew had to put up with
Today’s world develops so rapidly that it is hard to keep the pace with changes in social and biological rhythms of human life. Still, not everyone consider changes a positive thing, moreover, many people are afraid of them and refuse to accept any reformations. This fear of changes that was present in all time is probably one of the strongest of all phobias, even stronger than the fear of death that is a variation of the fear of changes. This theme is vividly depicted in the William Faulkner’s story “A Rose for Emily” focused on the life and death of Miss Emily Grierson. This a short story about the woman that managed to stay untouchable by time.
The ship’s departure out of the harbor, however, was not a smooth one. This commencement to a journey was not what was expected from a touted event as this. The first minute or so of the voyage was scary, if not terrifying for some passengers, as the great ship, while leaving
The lack of trust between Odysseus and his crew stems from Odysseus’ overconfidence in his own mental faculties and the subsequent lack of effective communication between Odysseus and those he captains. Because Odysseus’ crew has proven themselves unreliable over time, Odysseus does not see fit to trust them with things that he could do on his own; as a result, Odysseus’ mistrust of his crew amplifies own personal
He froze, “couldn't decide, I couldn't act”(81) O'Brien was too afraid to jump, his fear held him back. The pride he had at the beginning when he felt as though he was too good to go to war had now dwindled to nothing as he, “sat in the bow of the boat and cried.” (83) Adults often seek help when making decisions because when people are making decisions that could impact their life, input from others is helpful. Everyone is faced with decisions in life and fear of making the wrong decisions has a negative impact on the end result. Bain said in his article about fear in decision making that, “people are often so frozen by fear from making a wrong decision that they don't make a decision at all and life passes them by.” (Bain, 1) This statement describes what happened in O'Brien's situation as well. Instead of making the decision to jump off the boat and swim to Canada, he was so afraid of what others would think that he went back home and that decision changed the course of his entire
What does one think of when the name Titanic is said? That it was one of perhaps the most tragic events to have ever occurred on the sea? What is certain however is that it is one of the most remembered historical events to have ever occurred on the ocean and it is possible that the words “criminal negligence” come to one’s mind however, people look at it most have no idea of the true reasons the Titanic sank and that is why several people over the years have delved into the mystery of what sank the ship God himself could not. Most believe it to be the one accomplishment of a lone iceberg what most do not know is that there was a fire burning in one of the worst areas a fire could have burned. 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.
TITLE OF THE STORY ‘The Boarded Window’ itself represents Murdock and tells the readers that he was under a great amount of stress. The readers are also told that he did not board the windows due to his hatred of light and fresh air, but some other reason such as his wife’s death. Windows are generally the passageway to something, but when boarded up, it blocks any such entrances. “Anyone knew why it was so closed; certainly not because of the occupant’s dislike of light and air,” these lines justify the aforementioned
One of the last, and most prominent, reasons as to why these men died in the sea was the fact that investigation did not occur earlier. These men were unsure if their SOS had gotten through but they were sure that someone would notice the lack of the USS Indianapolis in port. The men knew that at least someone would get suspicious of the large ships tardiness, but there was a lack of urgency and investigation early enough to save more than 317 people. The late action and lack of urgency to find these men after they did not show to port is what caused to many to die such awful deaths as shark attacks, dehydration, blood poisoning, and even murder. The inaction and sloppiness of the US government and its military at the time is what caused the USS Indianapolis to fail and for the nearly 900 men to die at sea.
Lia’s parents also don’t understand that some medications will make Lia feel sick and this language barrier between the family and doctors is extremely complicated to deal with, both sides are concerned with Lia’s health, but they are unable to communicate with each other effectively. This part of the book is very significant to the whole book because without this language barrier, almost all the problems would be resolved. This theme continues in the book once the Lee’s get Lia back and they believed she was returned damaged but both sides cannot communicate and can’t figure out why things are happening. The language barrier also prevented the doctors from figuring out that the parents are trying to help in their own way by buying things that Hmong believe will heal the body. The doctors didn’t know for sure if the parents were serious or not.
To begin, Captain Smith did not fulfill all his duties as commander of the biggest ship in the world. Captain Smith was honored to be in command of such a historic journey, but this definitely caused some arrogance in his behavior and caused him to ignore the constant messages the crew and radio operators gave. While various iceberg warnings were continually arriving in the radio room, Captain Smith was off at fancy dinners and leading church services around the ship. In fact, Captain Smith’s negligence to his job caused him only receive a few of the 7 iceberg alerts. When the captain was told of these warnings, his pride took over.
This was due to the fact that Mr. Frank was afraid of anyone in the building hearing the footsteps and getting suspicious. Being unable to walk, as shown on page 286 as well, limited Anne in her creative abilities and aspirations. Concluding, something that everyone takes for granted that Anne in particular longed to do, was to have a breath of fresh air. At first, Anne did not realize how hard of a task that this would have been, but quickly became more prone to losing things she had loved during the time of the Holocaust. The eight lives and their loss of freedom was another aspect of what living in the Annex was
It makes me very nervous. Who would adjust me if the plane went down? No one in this country knows how to do it. It’s like the president and the vice president traveling together” (Slater, 241) To Mario, these doctors’ travel gives him fear and let him become nervous. Even though his emotional life is largely depend on the doctors, he is still the person who has his own free will which makes him become unique and help him to make the decision.
