  • Buffalo Creek Disaster - 1,171 words
    Imagine being woken up in the early morning and having your life be changed by a single horrific even. This situation was like no other coal disaster. This was the result of the irresponsibility of big business not caring for the well being of regular citizens. This case was a first in that the coal miners were not the victims, but their families were. The coal miners were not going to sit around and let this go by, they are ready to fight back. On an early February morning in 1972, one of the countries worst man-made disasters occurred in Buffalo Creek in West Virginia.

  • The Effects Of Nuclear War - 1,373 words
    ... es as many cases of severe burns as there are burn beds in the whole of North America. A whole year's supply of blood for transfusion would be needed immediately, and of course is not available in storage nor could it be collected from volunteers in a few days. The injured who reached hospitals would have to be assayed for radioactivity, for the safety of the staff, which would cause a serious bottle-neck and delay in most hospitals. The result of this huge overload of cases is that most of the injured would die, even though prompt treatment might have saved them. Relatively few would even get reached by rescue teams before they were moribund or dead; the majority would probably die in h ...

  • Tsunamis - 543 words
    A tsunami is a wave train, or series of waves, generated in a body of water. Earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, explosions, and even the impact of cosmic bodies, such as meteorites, can generate tsunamis. These waves can savagely attack coastlines, causing devastating property damage and loss of life. In English, the word tsunami means "harbor wave." Represented by two characters, the top character, "tsu," means harbor, while the bottom character, "nami," means "wave." In the past, tsunamis were sometimes referred to as "tidal waves" by the general public, and as "seismic sea waves" by the scientific community. The term "tidal wave" is a deceiving term; although a tsunami's impact ...

  • Toxic Waste Effects - 726 words
    Canada and all of the developed countries in the world produce some kind of toxic waste(s). It doesn't matter whether it's a chocolate bar wrapper or a canister of highly radioactive plutonium, they're potentially dangerous to us and/or our natural environment unless properly disposed of.

  • Titanic Memories - 1,332 words
    #8220;Back to the Titanic" I remember my childhood years quite well. I had lived with my big brother, Colby Winston, ever since I was five, I don't remember much before that though. We traveled all around Europe; Colby was a big gambler and loved to make bets. He lied, he cheated, everything was always changing.

  • Tsunami's - A Geologic Hazard - Report - 1,306 words
    Please note this is a "Scientific Report" not an essay please bare this in mind. Introduction The word Tsunami is a Japanese term meaning wave in the harbour. It is the most apt description for the hazard as tidal wave or seismic wave lead to incorrect connotations and misunderstandings. The dictionary definition of the word Tsunami itself means a very large ocean wave caused by an underwater earthquake or volcanic eruption, this is only half accurate, which I will attempt to illustrate in this report. Although 85 percent of Tsunamis occur in the Pacific Ocean (PTWC, web), it is possible for them to occur in any body of water on any part of the Earth. They are not restricted to large oceans ...

  • Symbolism And Characters In "the Virgin Suicides" - 1,233 words
    The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides is coated with symbolism from beginning to end. Eugenides utilizes many metaphors, comparing inadement objects with abstract ideas. The author inputs these abstract ideas, comparing the condition of the house relating to the decay of the Lisbons, the behavior of the characters to animals, and the insects to death and despair. As the snapshot shows, the slate roof had not yet begun to shed its shingles, the porch was still visible above the bushes, and the windows were not yet held together with strips of masking tape. (5) This photo was snapped before the first suicide attempt, when the soul of the Lisbons still contained spirit and hope. However, the ...

  • Proposition 13 And The California School System - 1,286 words
    To understand the effects of Proposition 13 on the California school system, we must first understand what Proposition 13 is. We must also briefly glance at the events leading up to Proposition 13, also known as the Jarvis-Gann initiative. Proposition 13, adopted on June 16, 1978, is an amendment to the Constitution of California. It forever changed Californian property laws and sent massive shock waves across other state governments. The sound roaring out of the West- what was it? A California earthquake? A Pacific tidal wave threatening to sweep across the country? Literally, it was neither; figuratively, it was both. That angry noise was the sound of a middle class tax revolt erupting . . ...
