War Of The Worlds Comparison
"War of the Worlds" is a 2005 fiction disaster film directed by Steven Spielberg. It is based on the
novel by H.G Wells and set in New Jersey, by the terrestrial tripods which are eliminating people or
holding them captive to control the universe. This film explores the theme of disaster through the
perspective of a single and divorced father Ray and his estranged children. Similarly, the novella
"Hiroshima" written by Laurence Yep, tells the story from the perspective of 12 years old, Sachi
from Hiroshima, Japan. The author explains what happens when Americans releases an atomic
bomb in Hiroshima, aftermath USA helps the families of Hiroshima, and they are known as

One of the texts demonstrates the impact of a disaster on the main protagonists Ray and his children
are fighting to survive from the invasion. Whereas, in the novella 'Hiroshima', the two most
important female protagonists Sachi and Riko are fighting to survive during World War two and the
impending bombing/impact of an atomic bomb. "The American bombers release the atomic bomb
on Hiroshima in Japan during World War 2; Americans thought that it would make Japan stop
fighting" because it will cause so much damage to buildings and up to 120,000 people will die on
that Hiroshima Bombing. This clearly explains why Americans bombed in Hiroshima because they
desire to take revenge on Japan. The atomic bomb can cause many peoples' deaths and also it can
cause damage to Hiroshima. The terrestrial tripods which are eliminating people or holding them

started attacking humans, Ray wanted his children to be safe, so he decides to leave his town and go

attack by moving towns, but in the novella, the main characters are fighting to survive the war and

The Great Migration Of Chinese Immigrants In The 19th Century
Similar to all the other countries in the 19th century, early Chinese immigrants were "pushed" by
forces in China and "pulled" by attractions in the United States. These pushes mainly came from
natural disasters, internal rebellious, and imperialistic aggressions in China. The pulls came from the
discovery of gold in California and different kinds of opportunities in the United States. The push
and pull factors resulted in the great migration of Chinese to the United States.
In the early 1800s, China faced lots of natural disasters. The major ones were happened in Henan

Prior to the First World War, the Red Cross introduced its first aid, water safety, and public health
nursing programs. With the outbreak of war, the organization experienced phenomenal growth. The
number of local chapters jumped from 107 in 1914 to 3,864 in 1918 and membership grew from
17,000 to over 20 million adult and 11 million Junior Red Cross members. The public contributed
$400 million in funds and material to support Red Cross programs, including those for American
and Allied forces and civilian refugees. The Red Cross staffed hospitals and ambulance companies
and recruited 20,000 registered nurses to serve the military. After the war, the Red Cross focused on
service to veterans and enhanced their programs in safety training, accident prevention, home care
for the sick, and nutrition education. They also provided relief for victims of such major disasters as

Many Japanese viewers went and watched the movie, leaving the theatre in tears due to the scenes
relating so vividly to the events that occurred. One such occurrence included the lucky dragon
incident, which involved a tuna trawler that trekked dangerously close to an H–bomb test site,
resulting in radiation poisoning to the crew members. Along with this imagery, a still illustration of
Hiroshima and Nagasaki in ashes after being hit by Godzilla symbolizes the attack of atomic bombs
by the Americans. This visual resembles how both cities looked after they had been attacked by the
atomic bombs. After the successful release of the film, Japanese critics accused the directors of
cashing in on national hysteria, and thus were not pleased. To support Ryfle's argument, Susan
Napier partially agrees with what Ryfle has to say in her article, "Panic Sites," by stating that "the
notion of disaster is of course not the only theme in Japanese science fiction" (Napier 330)–meaning
that the aesthetic concentration of disaster is not always praising the special effects but moreover
looking at the effects of disaster. Furthermore, she states, "The film offered its immediate post war
Japanese audience an experience that was both cathartic and compensatory, allowing them to rewrite
or at least to re–imagine their wartime experience" (Napier 330). They both conclude that certain

4.The first reason it took US years before it entered WWI was because it had no stake in any of the

Austria–Hungary, and Italy, and the Triple Entente (Britain, France and Russia). These Alliances
were involved in their own conflict because, Austria Hungary had angered Serbia by seizing
Ottoman provinces which in turn angered Serbia's ally Russia. This would lead to Germany, an ally

thousands of Jews moved to Palestine and bought land, spurring massive riots between the Jews and

Natural Disasters Of The Vietnam War
The Vietnam War also knows as the second Indochina war began November 1, 1955 and officially
ended in April 1975, although many today still are affected by the repercussion of war. During the
Vietnam War, Americans were told that spraying millions of acres of dense jungle with Agent
Orange would deprive the Viet Cong of cover and save GI's lives. But in the decade since the
herbicides use in Vietnam, the United States has been blamed for creating a human catastrophe
among the Vietnamese population and US military veterans. My focus in this paper will be to
explore why the effects of a human induced disaster are far worse then the effects of a natural
disaster, even though natural disasters often appear more severe and are usually recognized more.
During the Vietnam War the United States military fought what seemed to be an invisible enemy.
Viet Cong fighters who quickly attacked then slipped back into the cover of the dense jungle. For
the United States military this guerrilla style of fighting was unlike anything the US forces have ever
fought against. With little to no success in fighting the Viet Cong the American strategists suggested
a new technology that will help US troops seek out and destroy the enemy. In 1962 American forces

Ethical Dilemmas In Canada During The Second World War
Canada is known around the world as a peace keeping country, but has it always been that way?
During the world wars, Canada made a number of unethical decisions in war that effected
Canadians. Firstly, Canada made unethical decisions during World War One, by declaring war, using
conscription and passing the War Measures Act. Canada also made unethical decisions during World
War Two, like declaring war for a second time, having Japanese internment camps and participating
in the disaster at Dieppe. Canada making unethical decisions in war shows both continuity and
significant. Therefore, Canada's role during the two world wars has been unethical, but shows
continuity and significance throughout the 20th century.

Firstly, Canada deciding to be involved with Dieppe was unethical, but it helped Canadian troops
see how advanced Germany is on this coast which later helped Canada defeat Germany in D–Day .
Without participating in Dieppe we wouldn't have been successful in D–Day. Secondly, Japanese
internment camps were unethical. The Prime Minister Brian Mulroney formally apologized in the
House of Commons for taking the houses of Japanese descent people, "I know that I speak for
Members on all sides of the House today in offering to Japanese Canadians the formal and sincere
apology of this Parliament for those past injustices against them, against their families, and against
their heritage, and our solemn commitment and undertaking to Canadians of every origin that such
violations will never again in this country be countenanced or repeated." This demonstrates that the
government is understanding that they were wrong, so we can move on and become a more diverse
and welcoming country. Lastly, declaring war twice was unethical, but Canada learned from their
mistakes. In 1956, the Suez crisis started. The Suez Canal is located near Egypt and was used as a
faster way to transport goods to European countries, especially oil. The Egyptian president seized
control of the canal which scared countries like the United States, which used the canal as a vital
part of transportation, therefore starting conflict . The Canadian Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson,
decided instead of going in to the conflict they would go to the canal as peace keepers . This is

The Gulf War
While militarily, the Gulf War of 1990–91 seemed like a quick and decisive victory, it was an
environmental disaster, both at the time and when considering the residual impacts. Environmental
travesties were committed by both the Iraqi aggressor and the allied forces, ranging from use of
minerals like depleted uranium in weapons to deliberate dumping of oil into the Gulf. Oil fires and
spills had a severe impact on all forms of life, most prominent in the Gulf region, but with possible
global implications. Human health, wildlife, natural resources and ecosystems were all adversely
impacted by actions taken and not taken by both sides of the conflict.

The impacts of the spill were not immediately known because of the slow flow of information
coming out of the region. Also, a gag order originating in the Bush White House specifically
prohibited American scientists from discussing the impact of the oil spills. (Hawley, p 47–48)
The water exchange rate in the Persian Gulf is relatively slow and the area has classic low energy
shorelines. All of this meant that cleanup efforts would be slow and that the natural recovery would
take years and years. The low energy shoreline along the Saudi Arabian coast means that there are
no crashing waves that could wash away oil on the beaches. Also, the shore has a naturally gentle
slope, which means that high tide would wash oil all the way up the beach, impacting all the shore
birds and other organisms. (Hawley p 54)
The threat to human life by the oil spills in the Gulf was very real. In fact, the recovery efforts in the
area focused on desalination plants that supplied water to much of the population. (Hawley p 53)
The contamination of Gulf water was a direct threat to the water supply. In addition, much of the
500 kilometers of coastline that were affected by the oil spills consisted of wetlands and mangroves.

Military in Syria would contribute to stopping the government from continuing to tear up Syria. As a
country, we have already used our military to help end the harm the government has already done.
Sometimes, using the force of military can do more than using words or diplomacy. However, using
the military can sometimes cause more harm than intended, so we need to be very mindful of the
effects of our military.
Option 2: Stop the Humanitarian Disaster is also a good option when we are trying to stop this
catastrophe. To peacefully end the civil war in Syria would be the ultimate goal. Without causing
any more harm to the already torn up country, we could peacefully end the fighting. Diplomacy is
not always easy to reach, however. Because there are so many different groups and opinions, we
could propose an idea of ending the war, but it could easily get turned away by the opposing ideas.
It appears to me that a combination of continuing to aid the Syrian refugees, Option 1: Use the U.S.
Military in Syria, and Option 2: Stop the Humanitarian Disaster would work very well in ending the
war with the government in Syria. In my plan, the refugees would be helped, and the government

Nuclear War : Power Versus Peace Essay
Nuclear War: Power Versus Peace In today's society people must consider the possible devastation a
major war could bring to the world and society as a whole. Throughout history the US has
successfully avenged threats made to our nation, homes, and citizens but, what if the menace
becomes mass destruction? According to Johan Galtung, the author of On the Social and Cultural
Implications of Nuclear War, a war with such ambivalent outcomes would produce a more broken
world, stating, "We live already, to a large extent, in a world of wounded nations, wounded by
insults suffered in the past or at least perceived as such. A nuclear attack would add to the insults,
deepening old traumas, imprinting nations with the new ones," (Galtung). The government has made
the nation aware of weapons of mass destruction and the possibility of a nuclear war for many years,
and it is still one of the major topics brought up today. As a society we are unable to control the
weapons themselves but, we face the menace of a nuclear war and situations like Hiroshima on our
homeland. Analyzing situations from the past that contained the threat of nuclear peril can enlighten
today's society to possible solutions for this problem, while current situations like the possible

violence in the context of reaction to adversity. Goya's work shows the effects of Napoleon's
oppressive rule over the people of Spain in the early nineteenth century, while Kollwitz's art deals

The rioters' faces are not fully represented; rather, they appear twisted and animal–like. In a similar
vein, the only parts of the beaten figure recognizable as human are the bound feet. This combination
of features in the main composition serves to emphasize the brutal savagery brought on by war, a
goal similar to that of many other Disasters prints. The central subject matter in Uprising is also
rioting peasants, but unlike in The Mob, the protagonists seem to have stern intention and an
apparent guiding force. The former of these two qualities is visible thanks to Kollwitz's realistic
representation of the group's dour facial expressions and the use of thick lines to represent forceful
waving of objects in the air, while the latter is synthesized by the inclusion of the Liberty–esque
figure and her relationship to the men below. The intention of this work, constructed through these
elements, is to provoke feelings of solidarity and to act as a call to action of sorts. This pointed

Advantages Of Humanitarian Aid During Times Of War
Humanitarian Aid during Times of war: The Good and the Bad Humanitarian aid is care that is
given to those that are victims of natural disasters or those that are located in places where war is
occurring or has occurred. This care can include anything from food and water, to medical supplies
and shelter, such as tents. A lot of people may not be aware of the problems that can arise as a result
of humanitarian aid, since many only hear the positive outcomes of aid. There are both
disadvantages and advantages to humanitarian aid during violent times, and there is a question about
whether or not the negative aspects may actually outweigh the good. Humanitarian aid during
natural disasters is a little different from aid that is given during times of war. Access to
humanitarian aid during times of war can be difficult due to many complex problems that can arise.
The goal of humanitarian aid is to "save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain and protect human
dignity during and in the aftermath of emergencies", but problems arise when it comes to deciding
who to help and where the lines are drawn for impartiality ("Humanitarian Aid" 1). Humanitarian
organizations claim to work by the "principles of humanity, neutrality and impartiality", but by
doing this they may actually be altering the outcomes and prolonging the duration of wars,
particularly for those in Bosnia and Rwanda (Wassenhove 4). There are several theories about why
aid is thought to prolong wars, none of which have been studied enough to be proven. Among many
theories on how aid may prolong war, one theory describes how supplying aid decreases the cost of
the war, which can slow down the flow of information between opponents, and can ultimately keep
them from communicating what they are willing to accept in a settlement, and not knowing the
outcomes of war can definitely delay the end of it (Narang 2). Another theory is that humanitarian
aid, although it has good intentions, it can prolong war by supplying resources to opposing sides,
and there are two ways this can happen. Humanitarian aid can directly supply combatants with
resources such as shelter, medical supplies, and food by not being able to tell the difference between

fought for us in the civil war, yet there were no medical attempts to save lives, made Dunant
organize local people to help wounded soldiers. The locals helped with wounded soldiers by
feeding, and comforting them when in need. In October 1868 the International Red Cross Movement
was created in Geneva, Switzerland and their duty was to provide non–partisan care to the wounded
soldiers in time of war. (American Red Cross pg. 12, 2011) After the civil ... Show more content on

Hope In The American Red Cross
As discussed in my first essay, the virtue of hope is "crucial for attaining any other virtue" as well as
"the inseparable part of human nature." However, sometimes a burden of harsh and unpredictable
circumstances causes the unfortunate to doubt hope. In that case, according to Mary Wollstonecraft,
others should disregard their "ignorance and mistaken self–interest" to help the unfortunate regain
the essential virtue of hope (Wollstonecraft, 211). Furthermore, as Niccolo Machiavelli emphasizes,
when disregarding their self–interest, the ones helping should not only appear to be hopeful, but also
demonstrate hope in their actions (Machiavelli, 203). But how is the virtue of hope demonstrated to
others? By looking at the work of Mary Wollstonecraft ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Firstly, the Red Cross is tempted by the immorality since "groups tend to be more immoral than
individuals" as discussed by Martin Luther King (Dr. King, 274). To simplify, an individual who
acts immorally is the only one held accountable for his immorality. On the other hand, the
organization's responsibility for immoral actions is distributed among the members of the group,
which means that none of the individuals is exclusively responsible for the organization's actions, so
none of the members can be individually punished for immorality of the organization. Since partial
responsibility involves less accountability than total responsibility, individuals are more likely to be
immoral in a group than by themselves. Similarly, Henry David Thoreau explains the same issue by
stating that "a corporation has no conscience" (Thoreau, 256). Therefore, like any other
organization, the American Red Cross has to fight against immorality of the group to manifest their
purpose of helping others. But how do they fight it? Thoreau explains that even though a corporation
itself has no conscience, its members do and "a corporation of conscientious men is a corporation
with a conscience" (Thoreau, 256). And the American Red Cross makes sure that all its members are
conscientious by incorporating the moral laws in the organization's fundamental

The Nuclear Crisis Of Hiroshima And Hiroshima
Let us first consider each text's portrayal of the nuclear meltdown at Grafenrheinfeld. While both
texts draw parallels between nuclear accidents and nuclear warfare, Pausewang's emphasis on the
latter highlights a Cold War era fear of intentional nuclear annihilation. Consider, for example, how
the survivors of the Grafenrheinfeld disaster are publicly called "Hibakusha," a direct reference to
the survivors of the 1945 nuclear bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. This name, according to
Natalie Eppelsheimer, "suggests...no difference between the dangers of civilian and military nuclear
policy: surviving victims of radiation of a nuclear disaster must live with the same consequences as
the surviving victims of an atomic bomb" (23 my translation). Thus, both texts emphasise how
civilian use of nuclear technology carries many of the dangers of military use. But while Hage's text
is content with this association, Pausewang's proceeds still further: "the refugees after the [Second
World] War were seen just as unfavourably [as Grafenrheinfeld's survivors]," explains one
Hibakusha to another, "[e]ven though they weren't radioactive" (92). Here, Die Wolke explicitly
equates the threats of nuclear disaster and warfare, and indeed combines them into an implied threat
of nuclear holocaust: after Hiroshima, warfare is as potentially deadly as a nuclear disaster, and via

Fall Of Rome Dbq Essay
The Roman Empire began when Julius Caesar became one of the leaders to reign and conquer
Rome. Rome was commonly referred to as "the eternal city." Rome had a total of 19 emperors from
235 to 285 CE. Those 19 emperors might have caused the fall of Rome to happen. The decline of
Rome, or the "fall" of Rome, was due to economic problems, Roman emperors, and natural disasters
and disease.
One of the things that played a role in the decline of Rome, would be that there were too many war
outbreaks. The war outbreaks would eventually lead to oppressive taxation, meaning that if there
was too much war, more people would be likely to leave. And most of the people who leave would
be the rich people. As stated in document B, the roman army was filled with negligence and

Brave New World
The year 2017 has seen a plethora of deadly disasters. Disasters, natural or man–made, are
extremely disturbing events that cause hardship, suffering, injury, and death. A disaster can be
detrimental to human societies and their way of life. Natural disasters, such as hurricanes,
mudslides, and wild fires can cause everlasting changes to humanity, biomes, and the planet.
Likewise, man–made events, such as war, terrorist attacks, or toxic spills can be just as damaging.
One job of the Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) is to insure that humanitarian aid is
provided to relieve the pain and suffering caused by all types of disasters. In addition, saving lives
by utilizing our resources is the main goal of the UN. Norman Borlag once stated, "The destiny of
world civilization depends upon providing a decent standard of living for all mankind." Therefore,
the issues that will be addressed using the $50,000,000 plus anonymous contribution will involve
providing humanitarian aid to disaster torn areas in order improve the standard of living and

the comparison of the psychological impact of a current manmade disaster, commonly referred to as

increWhen the United States first went to war President Bush thought it was a good idea to cut
taxes. "...this was the first time in American history that a president took us into a war and cut taxes"
(Farley, 2009, p. 1). Typically, taxes rise during times of war to help compensate for the cost of
fighting. With lowered tax rates prior to and during the Iraq War the United States was put in a
difficult predicament. We were required to borrow large sums of money from other countries to
finance the war. This is a large part of why we are struggling with a national debt issue today. As of
today the United States has accumulated over $18 trillion in national debt. Of that $18 trillion, one
third can be attributed to the Iraq War. The amount of money we owe to other countries isn't
shrinking either. Our debt has increased by an average of $3.25 billion since 2012. If the amount we

it was enough to scare people for years to come (Vijayan, Kamble, Nayak, Vaze, and Sinha 2013).

Social Research On Natural Disasters And The Disaster
Kathleen Tierney's article explains the ways in which social research on natural disasters came to be
and how it is currently at the threshold of much needed evolution. Beginning during the Cold War,
research on natural disasters began to take place. The US government and military leaders were
concerned on how the public would react during times of social crisis, particularly during the event
of a nuclear strike. Government and military officials were concerned about possible panic and the
breakdown of society. They wondered if citizens would rise to the occasion and help in recovery
efforts, or if they would become unstable and destructive in their response to sociological
breakdowns. While much research had already been done during World War II, it was believed that
more research was necessary to establish a clearer idea of how citizens would react in the face of
social upheaval. To provide these answers, officials believed that they could evaluate the aftermath
of natural disasters. Funders of such potential research believed that "...natural and technological
disasters provided useful laboratories for studying social behavior under conditions of large–scale
physical destruction and social disruption" (Tierney, 2007, p. 504).
Stemming from the need of this information came the creation of various research centers such as
the DRC, or the Disaster Research Center. One of the Founders of the DRC was E. L. Quarantelli,
who was highly influenced by "...research traditions in collective behavior and symbolic
interactionism" (Tierney, 2007, p. 504). Two other founders of the DRC, Russell Dynes and J.
Euguene Haas, were "...organizational researchers" (Tierney, 2007, p. 504). The influence of the
founders of the DRC enabled many studies to be conducted on the ways society handled natural
disasters. The DRC was focused on conducting studies that were more qualitive than quantitative,
meaning they were more focused on observational studies that included interviews, field
observations, and the collection of archival materials than on traditional surveys and statistics
(Tierney, 2007, p. 505). These approaches allowed researchers to go into the field and conduct

variables that measure state capacity, particularly instability, poverty and population, were selected

demonstrates its failure to provide welfare to the people; and a large population adds challenges to
the overall balance and management of different regions. During the economic breakdown in
Yugoslavia, facing public calls for urgent economic reform, the Communist government "blocked
promising reform initiatives" in order to maintain the monopoly control of the government and the
country's industries. The mediocre Yugoslavian government failed to pull the nation out from
poverty, which eventually led to the collapse of the Republic.
Overall, both the CH model and the FL model highlight the interactive patterns between the
independent variables and the risk of war, and thus support their hypothesis of the civil war
mechanism. Nonetheless, although both models provide certain degree of prediction to the risk of
war, neither applies to the reality perfectly.
First of all, hypothesis proposed by both models are broad representation of a generalized

Causes Of The Lusitania Disaster
Lusitania Disaster On May 1, 1915, the British passenger ship Lusitania left the port of New York
bound for Liverpool, England. On board were 1,962 passengers and crew, including 139 of which
were Americans. Less than a week later on May 7, 1915, the Lusitania was attacked and sunk
without warning by a German submarine (U–boat) off the coast of Ireland. Under the discretion of
the German U–boat commander, Lieutenant Walter Schwieger, the Lusitania was sunk based on the
assumption that the ship was carrying war supplies for the United Kingdom (In harm's way, 2002).
In total 1,198 lives were lost, including 127 Americans, 79 were children including 39 infants under
the age of two years. Just 200 corpses were recovered from the sea while ... Show more content on

On august 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina made landfall along the United States gulf coast as a category
3 on the Saffir–Simpson Hurricane scale. The 400 mile wide storm brought heavy rains and winds in
excess of 140 miles per hour to states along the gulf coast. The widespread devastation resulted in
thousands of people in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama to be displaced from their homes, and
experts estimate that Katrina caused more than $100 billion in damage (History.com). While the
storm did cause significant damage, the primary cause of most of the devastation was the result of
levees along the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal being breeched. With an average elevation of
roughly two feet below sea level, the city of New Orleans suffered major devastation from flooding
once the waters breeched the levees and walls; by some estimates more than 80% of the city was
flooded. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), there were 1,833
deaths attributed to the storm both directly and indirectly (FEMA.gov). The long term impacts of
Hurricane Katrina are still to be known. Now more than ten years later the city of New Orleans and
its residents continue to feel the effects of the devastating storm. The population of New Orleans fell
from 484,674 before Katrina (April 2000) to an estimated 230,172 after Katrina (July 2006) a
decrease of 254,502 people and a loss of over half of the city's population. By July of 2014, the
population was back up to 384,320 (Plyer,

This film explores the theme of disaster through the perspective of a single and divorced father Ray and his estranged children.

The most recent version of the charter, which was adopted in May 2007, restates the traditional purposes of the organization which include giving relief to and serving as a medium of communication between members of the American armed forces and their families and providing national and international disaster relief and mitigation. Prior to the First World War, the Red Cross introduced its first aid, water safety, and public health nursing programs. With the outbreak of war, the organization experienced phenomenal growth. The number of local chapters jumped from 107 in 1914 to 3,864 in 1918 and membership grew from 17,000 to over 20 million adult and 11 million Junior Red Cross members. The public contributed $400 million in funds and material to support Red Cross programs, including those for American and Allied forces and civilian refugees. The Red Cross staffed hospitals and ambulance companies and recruited 20,000 registered nurses to serve the military. After the war, the Red Cross focused on service to veterans and enhanced their programs in safety training, accident prevention, home care for the sick, and nutrition education.

Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and Science Fiction Argumentative Synthesis Between Ryfle and Sontag Many differences can be seen between Steve Ryfle's article "Godzilla's Footprint" and Susan Sontag's well known 1965 article "Imagination of Disaster" as Ryfle talks about the Japanese's imagination perspective while Sontag talks about the American imagination perspective of there view points on science fiction films. Furthermore, Ryfle takes an intensive approach toward Godzilla has he provides evidence that advances his argument with the help of Susan Napier's article "Panic Sites" where she demonstrated key points toward Japanese science fiction films and relate to Ryfle's point of view. Whereas the famous Feminist write of the 1950's and 60's, Sontag disagrees with Ryfle on his idea and ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Many Japanese viewers went and watched the movie, leaving the theatre in tears due to the scenes relating so vividly to the events that occurred. One such occurrence included the lucky dragon incident, which involved a tuna trawler that trekked dangerously close to an H–bomb test site, resulting in radiation poisoning to the crew members. Along with this imagery, a still illustration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in ashes after being hit by Godzilla symbolizes the attack of atomic bombs by the Americans. This visual resembles how both cities looked after they had been attacked by the atomic bombs. After the successful release of the film, Japanese critics accused the directors of cashing in on national hysteria, and thus were not pleased. To support Ryfle's argument, Susan Napier partially agrees with what Ryfle has to say in her article, "Panic Sites," by stating that "the notion of disaster is of course not the only theme in Japanese science fiction" (Napier 330)–meaning that the aesthetic concentration of disaster is not always praising the special effects but moreover looking at the effects of disaster. Furthermore, she states, "The film offered its immediate post war Japanese audience an experience that was both cathartic and compensatory, allowing them to rewrite or at least to re–imagine their wartime experience" (Napier 330). They both conclude that certain science fiction movies have intensive dramatics as well as something important to ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

At the time there were two rival alliances, the Triple Alliance(Germany, Austria–Hungary, and Italy, and the Triple Entente (Britain, France and Russia). These Alliances were involved in their own conflict because, Austria Hungary had angered Serbia by seizing Ottoman provinces which in turn angered Serbia's ally Russia. This would lead to Germany, an ally of Austria–HUngary to declare war on Russia and its ally France. Britain would then get involved after Germany attempted to invade Belgium. Because of alliances almost all the major Allies and Central Power were involved in war, and obviously US was not allied with any ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The Treaty was a disaster from the beginning as it excluded the nations of Russia and Germany. Their restrictions and expenses put on Germany would lead to their economic destruction and eventually lead to WW2. Moreover, the treaty would alienate Vietnam, as France would not let Vietnam be represented in the treaty and would not give it independence leading to long term consequences for both France and Germany in the future. Furthermore, under British watch, thousands of Jews moved to Palestine and bought land, spurring massive riots between the Jews and Palestinians and resisting in massive bloodshed, These issues would lead to the US Congress rejecting the treaty . Though Wilson tried immensely to spread the idea of the League of Nations and its benefits across the country, Congress still rejected the treaty. The US did not join the League of Nations, a key part of the treaty, and the League of Nations, as we know, would fail to stop World War 2. Clearly, The Treaty of Versailles was a major disaster because it would allow for WW2, alienate many countries such as Vietnam, and lead to bloodshed in Palestine between the Jews and the ...

  • 13. Natural Disasters Of The Vietnam War The Vietnam War also knows as the second Indochina war began November 1, 1955 and officially ended in April 1975, although many today still are affected by the repercussion of war. During the Vietnam War, Americans were told that spraying millions of acres of dense jungle with Agent Orange would deprive the Viet Cong of cover and save GI's lives. But in the decade since the herbicides use in Vietnam, the United States has been blamed for creating a human catastrophe among the Vietnamese population and US military veterans. My focus in this paper will be to explore why the effects of a human induced disaster are far worse then the effects of a natural disaster, even though natural disasters often appear more severe and are usually recognized more. During the Vietnam War the United States military fought what seemed to be an invisible enemy. Viet Cong fighters who quickly attacked then slipped back into the cover of the dense jungle. For the United States military this guerrilla style of fighting was unlike anything the US forces have ever fought against. With little to no success in fighting the Viet Cong the American strategists suggested a new technology that will help US troops seek out and destroy the enemy. In 1962 American forces responded to these vicious guerrilla warfare attacks with operation "Ranch Hand". The operation entails the spraying over an area about the same size of Massachusetts with defoliants. A spokes person for the United States military stated "It ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Canada also made unethical decisions during World War Two, like declaring war for a second time, having Japanese internment camps and participating in the disaster at Dieppe.

The Prime Minister Brian Mulroney formally apologized in the House of Commons for taking the houses of Japanese descent people, "I know that I speak for Members on all sides of the House today in offering to Japanese Canadians the formal and sincere apology of this Parliament for those past injustices against them, against their families, and against their heritage, and our solemn commitment and undertaking to Canadians of every origin that such violations will never again in this country be countenanced or repeated." This demonstrates that the government is understanding that they were wrong, so we can move on and become a more diverse and welcoming country. Lastly, declaring war twice was unethical, but Canada learned from their mistakes. In 1956, the Suez crisis started. The Suez Canal is located near Egypt and was used as a faster way to transport goods to European countries, especially oil. The Egyptian president seized control of the canal which scared countries like the United States, which used the canal as a vital part of transportation, therefore starting conflict . The Canadian Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson, decided instead of going in to the conflict they would go to the canal as peace keepers . This is significant because it shows Canada doesn't have to declare war to be successful, and started Canada as a peace keeper country. Therefore, Canada's unethical decisions throughout World War One was very significant because it helps us learn from our ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Environmental travesties were committed by both the Iraqi aggressor and the allied forces, ranging from use of minerals like depleted uranium in weapons to deliberate dumping of oil into the Gulf. Oil fires and spills had a severe impact on all forms of life, most prominent in the Gulf region, but with possible global implications. Human health, wildlife, natural resources and ecosystems were all adversely impacted by actions taken and not taken by both sides of the conflict.

The impacts of the spill were not immediately known because of the slow flow of information coming out of the region. Also, a gag order originating in the Bush White House specifically prohibited American scientists from discussing the impact of the oil spills. (Hawley, p 47–48) The water exchange rate in the Persian Gulf is relatively slow and the area has classic low energy shorelines. All of this meant that cleanup efforts would be slow and that the natural recovery would take years and years. The low energy shoreline along the Saudi Arabian coast means that there are no crashing waves that could wash away oil on the beaches. Also, the shore has a naturally gentle slope, which means that high tide would wash oil all the way up the beach, impacting all the shore birds and other organisms. (Hawley p 54) The threat to human life by the oil spills in the Gulf was very real. In fact, the recovery efforts in the area focused on desalination plants that supplied water to much of the population. (Hawley p 53) The contamination of Gulf water was a direct threat to the water supply. In addition, much of the 500 kilometers of coastline that were affected by the oil spills consisted of wetlands and mangroves.

Something really needs to be done to help the innocent citizens of Syria survive and to start a new, war–free lifestyle.

Military in Syria would contribute to stopping the government from continuing to tear up Syria. As a country, we have already used our military to help end the harm the government has already done. Sometimes, using the force of military can do more than using words or diplomacy. However, using the military can sometimes cause more harm than intended, so we need to be very mindful of the effects of our military. Option 2: Stop the Humanitarian Disaster is also a good option when we are trying to stop this catastrophe. To peacefully end the civil war in Syria would be the ultimate goal. Without causing any more harm to the already torn up country, we could peacefully end the fighting. Diplomacy is not always easy to reach, however. Because there are so many different groups and opinions, we could propose an idea of ending the war, but it could easily get turned away by the opposing ideas. It appears to me that a combination of continuing to aid the Syrian refugees, Option 1: Use the U.S. Military in Syria, and Option 2: Stop the Humanitarian Disaster would work very well in ending the war with the government in Syria. In my plan, the refugees would be helped, and the government would be strongly encouraged to comply with the political agreement and military force would be applied if they continue to mangle their country.

Nuclear War : Power Versus Peace Essay Nuclear War: Power Versus Peace In today's society people must consider the possible devastation a major war could bring to the world and society as a whole. Throughout history the US has successfully avenged threats made to our nation, homes, and citizens but, what if the menace becomes mass destruction? According to Johan Galtung, the author of On the Social and Cultural Implications of Nuclear War, a war with such ambivalent outcomes would produce a more broken world, stating, "We live already, to a large extent, in a world of wounded nations, wounded by insults suffered in the past or at least perceived as such. A nuclear attack would add to the insults, deepening old traumas, imprinting nations with the new ones," (Galtung). The government has made the nation aware of weapons of mass destruction and the possibility of a nuclear war for many years, and it is still one of the major topics brought up today. As a society we are unable to control the weapons themselves but, we face the menace of a nuclear war and situations like Hiroshima on our homeland. Analyzing situations from the past that contained the threat of nuclear peril can enlighten today's society to possible solutions for this problem, while current situations like the possible conquest of Kim Jong Un exposes the weakness of how unprepared the US is for a nuclear war.

Comparing The Disasters Of War, And Kollwitz's Art Humanity's capacity for all types of violence – wanton, revolutionary, productive, vengeful, et cetera – has been a focus of artists during every epoch of human history. Francisco Goya's The Mob (part of his series The Disasters of War) and Käthe Kollwitz's Uprising, both prints, deal with human violence in the context of reaction to adversity. Goya's work shows the effects of Napoleon's oppressive rule over the people of Spain in the early nineteenth century, while Kollwitz's art deals with the difficulties endured by German peasants near the dawn of the twentieth century.

In a similar vein, the only parts of the beaten figure recognizable as human are the bound feet. This combination of features in the main composition serves to emphasize the brutal savagery brought on by war, a goal similar to that of many other Disasters prints. The central subject matter in Uprising is also rioting peasants, but unlike in The Mob, the protagonists seem to have stern intention and an apparent guiding force. The former of these two qualities is visible thanks to Kollwitz's realistic representation of the group's dour facial expressions and the use of thick lines to represent forceful waving of objects in the air, while the latter is synthesized by the inclusion of the Liberty–esque figure and her relationship to the men below. The intention of this work, constructed through these elements, is to provoke feelings of solidarity and to act as a call to action of sorts.

  • 33. Advantages Of Humanitarian Aid During Times Of War Humanitarian Aid during Times of war: The Good and the Bad Humanitarian aid is care that is given to those that are victims of natural disasters or those that are located in places where war is occurring or has occurred. This care can include anything from food and water, to medical supplies and shelter, such as tents. A lot of people may not be aware of the problems that can arise as a result of humanitarian aid, since many only hear the positive outcomes of aid. There are both disadvantages and advantages to humanitarian aid during violent times, and there is a question about whether or not the negative aspects may actually outweigh the good. Humanitarian aid during natural disasters is a little different from aid that is given during times of war. Access to humanitarian aid during times of war can be difficult due to many complex problems that can arise. The goal of humanitarian aid is to "save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain and protect human dignity during and in the aftermath of emergencies", but problems arise when it comes to deciding who to help and where the lines are drawn for impartiality ("Humanitarian Aid" 1). Humanitarian organizations claim to work by the "principles of humanity, neutrality and impartiality", but by doing this they may actually be altering the outcomes and prolonging the duration of wars, particularly for those in Bosnia and Rwanda (Wassenhove 4). There are several theories about why aid is thought to prolong wars, none of which have been studied enough to be proven. Among many theories on how aid may prolong war, one theory describes how supplying aid decreases the cost of the war, which can slow down the flow of information between opponents, and can ultimately keep them from communicating what they are willing to accept in a settlement, and not knowing the outcomes of war can definitely delay the end of it (Narang 2). Another theory is that humanitarian aid, although it has good intentions, it can prolong war by supplying resources to opposing sides, and there are two ways this can happen. Humanitarian aid can directly supply combatants with resources such as shelter, medical supplies, and food by not being able to tell the difference between civilians and ...

American Red Cross Analysis It's amazing how far United States have come along when it comes to caring for an individual that you don't know, yet you are doing everything in your power to save someone's life. American Red Cross was founded by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, but before the American Red Cross came into America it was and international movement that was founded by a young Swiss man named Henry Dunant. To know that 40,000 men are laying dead or alive and wounded from a war that soldiers fought for us in the civil war, yet there were no medical attempts to save lives, made Dunant organize local people to help wounded soldiers. The locals helped with wounded soldiers by feeding, and comforting them when in need. In October 1868 the International Red Cross Movement was created in Geneva, Switzerland and their duty was to provide non–partisan care to the wounded soldiers in time of war.

They even started helping victims when it came to sheltering them because their homes were damaged by hurricanes, floods or man–made disasters.

However, sometimes a burden of harsh and unpredictable circumstances causes the unfortunate to doubt hope. In that case, according to Mary Wollstonecraft, others should disregard their "ignorance and mistaken self–interest" to help the unfortunate regain the essential virtue of hope (Wollstonecraft, 211). Furthermore, as Niccolo Machiavelli emphasizes, when disregarding their self–interest, the ones helping should not only appear to be hopeful, but also demonstrate hope in their actions (Machiavelli, 203). But how is the virtue of hope demonstrated to others? By looking at the work of Mary Wollstonecraft ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Firstly, the Red Cross is tempted by the immorality since "groups tend to be more immoral than individuals" as discussed by Martin Luther King (Dr. King, 274). To simplify, an individual who acts immorally is the only one held accountable for his immorality. On the other hand, the organization's responsibility for immoral actions is distributed among the members of the group, which means that none of the individuals is exclusively responsible for the organization's actions, so none of the members can be individually punished for immorality of the organization. Since partial responsibility involves less accountability than total responsibility, individuals are more likely to be immoral in a group than by themselves. Similarly, Henry David Thoreau explains the same issue by stating that "a corporation has no conscience" (Thoreau, 256). Therefore, like any other organization, the American Red Cross has to fight against immorality of the group to manifest their purpose of helping others. But how do they fight it? Thoreau explains that even though a corporation itself has no conscience, its members do and "a corporation of conscientious men is a corporation with a conscience" (Thoreau, 256).

  • 41. The Nuclear Crisis Of Hiroshima And Hiroshima Let us first consider each text's portrayal of the nuclear meltdown at Grafenrheinfeld. While both texts draw parallels between nuclear accidents and nuclear warfare, Pausewang's emphasis on the latter highlights a Cold War era fear of intentional nuclear annihilation. Consider, for example, how the survivors of the Grafenrheinfeld disaster are publicly called "Hibakusha," a direct reference to the survivors of the 1945 nuclear bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. This name, according to Natalie Eppelsheimer, "suggests...no difference between the dangers of civilian and military nuclear policy: surviving victims of radiation of a nuclear disaster must live with the same consequences as the surviving victims of an atomic bomb" (23 my translation). Thus, both texts emphasise how civilian use of nuclear technology carries many of the dangers of military use. But while Hage's text is content with this association, Pausewang's proceeds still further: "the refugees after the [Second World] War were seen just as unfavourably [as Grafenrheinfeld's survivors]," explains one Hibakusha to another, "[e]ven though they weren't radioactive" (92). Here, Die Wolke explicitly equates the threats of nuclear disaster and warfare, and indeed combines them into an implied threat of nuclear holocaust: after Hiroshima, warfare is as potentially deadly as a nuclear disaster, and via Hitler or Chernobyl, each has come to Germany in the last fifty years.

Rome had a total of 19 emperors from 235 to 285 CE. Those 19 emperors might have caused the fall of Rome to happen. The decline of Rome, or the "fall" of Rome, was due to economic problems, Roman emperors, and natural disasters and disease.

This led to an increWhen the United States first went to war President Bush thought it was a good idea to cut taxes. "...this was the first time in American history that a president took us into a war and cut taxes" (Farley, 2009, p. 1). Typically, taxes rise during times of war to help compensate for the cost of fighting. With lowered tax rates prior to and during the Iraq War the United States was put in a difficult predicament. We were required to borrow large sums of money from other countries to finance the war. This is a large part of why we are struggling with a national debt issue today. As of today the United States has accumulated over $18 trillion in national debt. Of that $18 trillion, one third can be attributed to the Iraq War. The amount of money we owe to other countries isn't shrinking either. Our debt has increased by an average of $3.25 billion since 2012.

That is how many of 600 randomly surveyed students and staff in an independent study at PNHS said they "Strongly Agree" that their household is generally prepared for disasters (Witek, Figure 1). In the modern world, everyday citizens live under constant, and generally ignored, threats like those of nuclear warfare, international terrorism, cyber attacks, natural disasters, and other large–scale crises. While we go about our daily lives, these potential events linger and yet the average US citizen stands under–prepared or entirely unprepared for these harsh realities. Despite this shocking fact, the US Government continues to focus on defending the country rather than preparing its population. This document will argue as to why this is a poor allocation of our nation's time and resources and why programs like Civil Defense, popular and commonplace during the Cold War, should be brought back into the picture for the preservation of the nation and its people. Our nation and its population should be educated, prepared and exercised for the harsh realities of the modern world. Along the lines of large–scale disasters, there are nearly infinite scenarios where things can go horribly wrong in a matter of minutes and hours, as opposed to months and years.

The Third World War is imminent and I realize the time has come to put my creation into action before the human race is annihilated through atomic weapons, bombs of mass destruction and horrors beyond the imagination. Through many years of mind wrenching labor I have put together a blueprint for an impregnable bomb shelter, one that will hold and protect twelve people for three months, long enough to ensure a sustainable life force on earth. This shelter that I have created, which is the only one throughout the entire world, will keep twelve people alive for three months. Even though, I have put my life works into building this shelter, I will not be of this earth for long due to a terminal illness. After hours of deliberation I have come up with twelve people that will inhabit this shelter. I have chosen these twelve people with care and speed, keeping in focus the three categories, survival, harmony and the continuation of the human race, so that we will prevail. As World War II came to a close, the catastrophe was a result of the reduction of humanity. The world was extinguished all, but the twelve people and the shelter that I have built. In order to get through the interbellum period, one of the most important aspects to maintaining life inside the shelter is survival.

The Psychological Social Consequences War, Terrorism Disasters: The Civilian Military Population Introduction The objective of this brief study is to examine the psychological and social consequences of war, acts of terrorism and disasters upon the civilian and military population as well as the treatment options available for military members and their family members. The work of Matthewson (nd) states that it is not the battlefield "upon which the attacks take place, but rather, it is in the mind the psychology of those who survive." (p.192) Matthewson additionally states that disasters both "natural and human–made, can elicit fear, anger and worry in victims, their family and friends and could lead to psychological symptoms of anxiety and depression." (p.192) I. Post– Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) The Mayo Clinic describes Post–Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) as "a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event." (2012, p.1) Individuals who experience trauma are reported to "have difficulty adjusting and coping for awhile." (Mayo Clinic, 2012, p.1) In many such instances the symptoms get better after time however, in more severe cases the symptoms do not go away but instead the symptoms worsen lasting for a long time and this is referred to as Post–Traumatic Stress Disorder, which requires treatment.

Americans draw together and put their own lives at risk to defeat terrorists; for example, in the 9/11 terrorist attack citizens took down the terrorists piloting the United Flight 93. People volunteer their time to help the injured people, whether it is mentally or physically. Citizens also offer their money and time to help rebuild any wreckage at the site of the outbreak. Because of these occurrences, Americans strengthened and improved their security, which prevents putting the country in terror once again. Terrorist attacks may tear the country down at the time, but it becomes so much stronger from them afterwards.

The Three Mile Island accident happened on March 28th, 1979 near Middletown, Pennsylvania (Vijayan, Kamble, Nayak, Vaze, and Sinha 2013). Ignorant workers, defects in the design of the plant, and disastrous equipment were major components in the Three Mile Island disaster. Basically, a valve erupted from too much pressure; this released just under 1,000,000 gallons of polluted water into the basement of the plant. Only a small amount of radiation was leaked into the atmosphere, but it was enough to scare people for years to come (Vijayan, Kamble, Nayak, Vaze, and Sinha 2013). Only fractions of a millirem were found 50 miles away from the accident. A rem is a large dose of radiation; a millirem is a thousandth of a rem (Edelson, 1986). This shows that there was not much radiation that leaked into the atmosphere, unlike Chernobyl. In Sweden, they discovered numerous millirems of radiation, which puts into perspective how big the Chernobyl disaster was. After the Three Mile Island Accident, there were major changes including safety and defense–in–depth improvements (Vijayan, Kamble, Nayak, Vaze, and Sinha 2013). The United States put forth major changes in safety and technology for their nuclear power plants after the Three Mile Island accident, but the Soviet Union did not believe this would happen in their plants.

  • 71. Social Research On Natural Disasters And The Disaster Kathleen Tierney's article explains the ways in which social research on natural disasters came to be and how it is currently at the threshold of much needed evolution. Beginning during the Cold War, research on natural disasters began to take place. The US government and military leaders were concerned on how the public would react during times of social crisis, particularly during the event of a nuclear strike. Government and military officials were concerned about possible panic and the breakdown of society. They wondered if citizens would rise to the occasion and help in recovery efforts, or if they would become unstable and destructive in their response to sociological breakdowns. While much research had already been done during World War II, it was believed that more research was necessary to establish a clearer idea of how citizens would react in the face of social upheaval. To provide these answers, officials believed that they could evaluate the aftermath of natural disasters. Funders of such potential research believed that "...natural and technological disasters provided useful laboratories for studying social behavior under conditions of large–scale physical destruction and social disruption" (Tierney, 2007, p. 504). Stemming from the need of this information came the creation of various research centers such as the DRC, or the Disaster Research Center. One of the Founders of the DRC was E. L. Quarantelli, who was highly influenced by "...research traditions in collective behavior and symbolic interactionism" (Tierney, 2007, p. 504). Two other founders of the DRC, Russell Dynes and J. Euguene Haas, were "...organizational researchers" (Tierney, 2007, p. 504). The influence of the founders of the DRC enabled many studies to be conducted on the ways society handled natural disasters. The DRC was focused on conducting studies that were more qualitive than quantitative, meaning they were more focused on observational studies that included interviews, field observations, and the collection of archival materials than on traditional surveys and statistics (Tierney, 2007, p. 505). These approaches allowed researchers to go into the field and conduct studies on various types of social crises. Research was ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

This ranges from foreign invasion, civil war, collapse in trade, drought and natural disasters. All of these could be possible hypotheses as to why the Mycenaean civilisations fell, but none are certain as there is not enough evidence to back these hypotheses up. Mycenae was a very successful and powerful city. This would make it hard for the city to be brought down and for everything to be forgotten. Foreign invasion is a plausible hypothesis for the destruction of Mycenae. The theory is that there was a mass invasion by outsiders known to the Egyptians as 'the sea people' who invaded Egypt earlier as well.

Over time, human enabled a comprehensive study of variables and motives in attempt to theorize a historical pattern of civil war. Two important models, one constructed by Paul Collier and Anke Hoeffler, and the other by James Fearon and David Laitin, provided hypothesis of the causes of civil war based on social, economic and political measurements. However, as Horowitz states, "a bloody phenomenon cannot be explained by a bloodless theory", civil conflict can never be concluded to a certain pattern; despite the general trend, chance events such as natural disasters ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Rwanda, which underwent two civil wars in 1963 and 1990, has one of the highest population densities in Africa. On the other hand, Fearon and Laitin concentrated on state capacity in building their model to predict the risk of war. They concluded civil war as the consequence of a weak central government; variables that measure state capacity, particularly instability, poverty and population, were selected in the process. Political instability reflects a government's inability in counterinsurgency; poverty demonstrates its failure to provide welfare to the people; and a large population adds challenges to the overall balance and management of different regions. During the economic breakdown in Yugoslavia, facing public calls for urgent economic reform, the Communist government "blocked promising reform initiatives" in order to maintain the monopoly control of the government and the country's industries. The mediocre Yugoslavian government failed to pull the nation out from poverty, which eventually led to the collapse of the Republic. Overall, both the CH model and the FL model highlight the interactive patterns between the independent variables and the risk of war, and thus support their hypothesis of the civil war mechanism. Nonetheless, although both models provide certain degree of prediction to the risk of war, neither applies to the reality perfectly. First of all, hypothesis proposed by both models are broad representation of a generalized ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The 400 mile wide storm brought heavy rains and winds in excess of 140 miles per hour to states along the gulf coast. The widespread devastation resulted in thousands of people in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama to be displaced from their homes, and experts estimate that Katrina caused more than $100 billion in damage (History.com). While the storm did cause significant damage, the primary cause of most of the devastation was the result of levees along the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal being breeched. With an average elevation of roughly two feet below sea level, the city of New Orleans suffered major devastation from flooding once the waters breeched the levees and walls; by some estimates more than 80% of the city was flooded. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), there were 1,833 deaths attributed to the storm both directly and indirectly (FEMA.gov). The long term impacts of Hurricane Katrina are still to be known. Now more than ten years later the city of New Orleans and its residents continue to feel the effects of the devastating storm.
