The Affects Natural Disasters have on Countries
By:

There are many natural disasters that occur throughout the earth in many countries. Some natural disasters are devastating killing the lives of men and the environment they live in. Other natural disasters are portrayed to be just a bad day created by Mother Nature to just pass by. Overall, the natural disasters that can be catastrophic to people on earth are hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. All three natural disasters occur in many countries. Hurricanes are common in the United State of America, earthquakes are common in Mexico, and tsunamis are common in Japan. These three countries have experienced the worst damage from these natural disasters. The countries had to watch their people die, find a way to recover physically and mentally, and suffer from billions of dollars in damages. These people practically lose everything and have to find a way to rebuild what was lost. In order to save lives and help reduce damage from natural disasters, mankind has come a long way in technology to predict the size and location of each natural disaster’s destruction. Technology is not the same as it was one hundred years ago. With the help from NASA and scientists all over the world, people are able to give out broadcasted warnings to millions of people of the natural disaster that’s about to hit. All in all, technology has saved many lives from natural disasters but mankind is still trying to find a way in reducing damage from Mother Nature’s burst hits.

In the past mankind didn’t have the sophisticated technology that was able to closely predict and track a hurricane’s projection? One hundred years ago scientists and meteorologists were still trying to figure out if their calculation for a projected hurricane was reliable or not. In the 1800’s prediction of a hurricane occurring were from ships that traveled…...

The Affects of Terrorism

...The Affects of Terrorism James Wilford HIS/145 December 3, 2012 Senitra Upton The Affects of Terrorism Terrorism, the heinous acts of an individual or group whose purpose is to create fear for religious, political, or ideological goals by deliberately targeting or disregarding the safety of non –combatant civilians has heightened the security of the nations abroad. Terrorism when looked at through a historical point of view has always been present throughout the world, but mainly stronger in the Middle Eastern countries such as Israel, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Lebanon. The three main reason why terrorist activity is considered heavier in these areas are due to ethnic groups that are not able to get along because of their difference in religious beliefs, the need to protect their oil from the interest of the Western countries, and “the need to extract or purge all imperialists, infidels, or those who challenge their interest and from this is where we have terrorism escalating to international levels” (The North States Emergency Consortium). In the mind of a terrorist when planning or conducting terrorist acts is to choose places where they can avoid detection or capture before and after their attack, “others are willing to commit suicide in order to carry out an attack against a much more secure target” (The North States Emergency Consortium). Normally, the places that are selected are institutions were the disaster would bring about large-scale losses of life,......

Reading is not a matter of fact, but interpretation and judgment by the members of some discourse community. Comprehension in the sense already defined implies, interpretation and interpretation cannot be exhausted. Every reading of a text is in some degree unique in the specific meaning it makes with the text. Therefore, the researcher can say that by this purposes respond by these students about reading may affect their comprehension. It is because they’re just studying some certain chapter or unit in their textbooks and exerts an extra......

The Negative Affect of Marijuana Use

...The Negative Affect of Marijuana Use Com/172 09/18/12 Dr. Chris Feriante The Negative Affect of Marijuana Use Most people never think about the consequences of using a controlled substance, for the most part people tend to believe they are in control of their usage and can stop any time they feel like it. Consequently controlled substance lives up to its title, and ultimately takes control of your life. One day you may feel like you are on top of the world and the next day you will realize you have lost everything. Unfortunately when you turn your life over to a controlled substance you lose the ability to quite when you want and may find that you have now become addicted to the drug that has been abused. The use of a controlled substance such as marijuana can cause a negative impact on a person’s finances, social relations and personal health. The use of marijuana has adverse affects on a person’s ability to accomplish complex as well as simple task that may be required by ones employer. These effects according to the ”Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute” can include , impaired thinking, loss of balance and coordination, decreased concentration, decreased alertness and a decrease in reaction time, all of which will cause an employer to terminate an employee for the work place. Unfortunately once an employee has been terminated due to illegal use of marijuana it becomes very difficult to obtain employment which leads to loss of wages and eventually...

Affects of Music

... which, in many cases, is highly exaggerated . As put by Manson, he believes that he represents what people are afraid of. Moral panics tend to thrive off of this. Often based from stereotypes, panics are spread thus pinpointing a specific group, often unrighteous in doing so. Since panics and fears often tend to be derived from what we are afraid of (and that is often what we’re uncomfortable with), blaming a subgroup often seems like the easiest, but not necessarily the correct, thing to do. King, a child psychologist, "stops short of suggesting a cause and effect relationship between listening to this music and destructive behavior, he suggests that it is at least a contributing factor." The answer to whether or not music can affect a person's behavior is not a simple matter of a yes or no answer. While, yes, it is true that the criminals in the cases of Columbine and Dawson College were listeners of genres of music that the media tends to pinpoint, but these are just two people who listen to that style of music as I stated before wouldn’t all the listners of this genre of music be into destructive behavior also?...

Affects of Media on Society

...Affects of Media on Society Walden University HMNT-3001 November 23, 2013 Affects of Media on Society As Americans, do we paint the reality of being lackluster human beings? Does the American personality reflect Kalle Lasn’s description that if one does not reach the feeling of satisfaction we “become shallow and meaningless,” (Lasn, 1999, pg.11)? I do not believe this to be a truth one bit. I do not believe that media’s effects on society make us homogenous. I believe we choose to view and take in media in our own ways. That we can pick and choose what we watch and read, and in turn make sound decisions of what we purchase and consume. I disagree with Kalle Lasn’s view on the media megacorporation that they, “…control not only the daily newspapers and TV airwaves but the magazine, book publishing, motion picture, home video and music industries as well, information and cultural diversity both plummet, (Lasn, 1999, p. 25). Lasn makes consumers out to be almost zombie like. The truth is we have choices on what we watch and read. A republican may choose to watch Fox for all of their news information while a democrat may choose to watch CNN. There are biases that surround certain television networks that no one can change, but you can choose to watch something else. Linda Holtzman stated, “Socialization teaches us the culture of norms of our society. It may teach us that honesty and hard work are valued in the U.S. society. But it can also lead to the......

Affect Theory

...ESSAY #1 – Politics of Affect Affect theory has recently become a burgeoning field of study. In the most basic of definitions, affect is the visceral force that is around the body, something that is not consciously known, yet it can influence our movements, thoughts, and the way one relates to other people and objects. Many theorist from a wide variety of academic disciplines have contributed to the field of affect studies. This essay will look at selected works of Nigel Thrift, Deborah Gould, and Ruth Leys to show how they have contributed to the development of affect studies. The essay will also aim to show how they might differ or agree on certain concepts within affect theory amongst other prominent affect theorist. Nigel Thrift is a leading academic in the field of human geography and has made significant contributions to the field of affect. His article, Intensities of Feelings: Towards a Spatial Politics of Affect, attempts to show that the politics of affect are central to the life of cities, given that cities are inhuman or trans-human entities and that politics is understood as a process of community without unity (Thrift, 2004, p. 57). For Thrift, affect is an object or subject of manipulation, and it is closely tied to power and how it operates, affective life and emotional life is the setting for operation of power. He states “…it is so crucial to address affect now: in at least one guise the discovery of new means of practising affect is also the......

Birth Affects

...Your baby may often want to be close to you and your partner, even when sleeping. According to an article on kidshealth.org, "Cosleeping and Your Baby," sharing a bed with a newborn is a controversial topic in the United States because the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that it poses risks of suffocation for the baby. Nevertheless, many parents still do this. If you choose to sleep with your baby, you and your partner will likely have to sleep at a greater distance from each other in order to make room for the child. If your baby sleeps in a crib, you may have to get up several times a night for feeding, which will also affect your partner's sleeping schedule. If expressing milk into a bottle is a possibility, you can take turns getting up to feed the baby at night. Siblings Who does what around the house? Photo Credit Little girl is cleaning the floor image by Ivonne Wierink from Fotolia.com If there are other children in your family, they may need some preparation, as they will also be tremendously afftected by the newborn's presence. According to an article U.S. Department of Health & Human Services: "Birthing and Parenting Classes," some hospitals offer sibling classes that can prepare children for the arrival of a new brother or sister.

Advertisments Affect

...Nariman Mohamed 00051742 Wri102,sec17 Nov12,2014 Do advertisements affect children? Most of the ads are targeted to the children, but will the child be affected by the ad he or she watches on the television? Some of the advertisement contains violent acts. For instance, Persil, the washing powder, shows two children fighting and pushing each other, then bloodstain remains on the shirt. Those kinds of advertisements are meant to show that the washing powder will remove any stain. However, some parents complained that those kinds of advertisements affected their children in a negative way and they started copying what they saw. While people are complaining about how advertisements are affecting their children, they forgot that it is their responsibility to guide their children and control what they are watching. Therefore, Advertisements do not affect children in a negative way as most people think. Janice & Ania said, “… Advertisements of junk food should be banned to help fight child obesity.”(N.d, para9). It is widely believed by people that the main reason for obesity. Additionally, people think that advertisements are meant to corrupt child and make then unethical. All these thoughts and confusions are based on inadequate reasoning, which makes their argument invalid in most of the time. For instance, children feel that whenever that the advertisement is colorful and full of cartoon characters, children will be fascinated with the advertisement so that they will...

How Music Affects Mood

...mood and brighten their day. Music has the ability to connect people together and also has the ability to heal you, physically and emotionally. It can heal the brain and sometimes the heart from emotional damage. Often times, music is used in therapy and rehabilitation centers. Music affects your mood and how your brain functions. According to the online dictionary, “music is the art of sound and time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through elements of rhythm melody and color.” An article states that “emotions are more than just something we feel -- they happen in the body, too” (Millar). In fact, the dictionary definition of emotion is, “an affective state of consciousness in which joy, sorrow, fear, hate is experienced.” The places where emotions are felt most commonly are within the heart. Emotions are highly affected by different types of music. What the brain is, is “the part of the central nervous system enclosed in the cranium of humans and other vertebrates, consisting of a soft, convoluted mass of gray and serving to control the mental and physical actions” (Dictionary). This is what allows people to feel, think and function. Different types of music can affect a person’s mind and emotions in different ways. For example, if they are sad and they listen to sad music it might make them cry. This could be because it reminds them of why they are sad. Another reason this could happen is because they can relate to the lyrics. It could remind them......

Factors That Affect the Rate of Decomposition

...Factors the affect the rate of decomposition pH of soil The pH of the soil can affect the rate of decomposition as it directly affects the type and activity of the bacteria, fungi and other micro-organisms decomposing material. A highly acidic soil (0-7 pH) or highly alkaline soils (7-14 pH), it is not a ideal environment for the micro-organisms to grow in. It also affects the food the soil biota feeds on, as extreme pH can determine the availability of essential plan nutrients. Temperature of soil In general, reaction rates increase when a temperature is hotter. This is also applicable to the rate of decomposition. The explanation for this relates to enzymes; the microbes, fungi and bacteria which are often the decomposers contain many enzymes which help to effectively break down a living being rolling body. If there is a higher temperature, in the instance, in the soil, then the enzymes will make more successful collisions than they would at a lower temperature.This in turn causes them to decompose an object faster. However if a temperature is too high it will cause the enzymes to denature. Meaning the substrate will permanently change the shape and will not fit into the active site. Using the lock and key model we can see how denatured substances can cause less successful collision and a slower rate of decomposition. Moisture of Soil Decomposition is a process which needs oxygen - many micro-organisms are suppressed and cannot effectively decompose......

Racism and Its Affects

...effects of racism on people of color, as well as whites. “Racism, like other forms of oppression, is not only a personal ideology based on racial prejudice, but a system involving cultural messages and institutional policies and practices as well as beliefs and actions of individual” (Tatum, pg. 9). As a result of this system, it leaves the oppressed at a great disadvantage in society. This includes “access to social, cultural, and economic resources and decision making” (Rothenberg, 2007). In order for change to come about and for the American society to reach racial inequality, we first have to acknowledge the problem openly, which our society has yet to do. In this paper I am going to analyze the meaning of racism and how it affects both people of color and whites. In doing so, I am going to explore how racism impacts one’s racial identity, using my life experiences as an example. I will also demonstrate how racism leads to prejudice and discrimination and provide examples of these. I will close the paper with solutions and ideas to improve our communities and our society as a whole. Racism Defined Racism is defined as a system of advantage based on race (Tatum 1997). In America whites have control over resources such as jobs and education. This gives them the power to be racists toward others. Because people of color do not have this power, they are not able to be racist towards whites. Many whites would not consider themselves as......

It will also review if there is an affect or impact on performance. Finally this paper will review and access the long-term and short-term effects of stress on the body, brain and behavior. * Physiological needs refer to deficits that exist in the material body or brain. Physiological needs refer to deficits that exist in the material body or brain. Psychological needs, however, do not have any material existence and are mental or psychological in nature (Deckers, 2010). The body has specific needs and if those needs are not met than a physiological need is created. However a psychological drive results when an organism does not receive a needed substance per Decker, 2010 Drives, Needs, and Awareness 8th chapter. A physiological need is responsible for pushing an organism into action. Abraham Maslow examined needs and put them in to tiers from the lowest to the highest. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is physiological, safety, belongingness, esteem, and self-actualization (Deckers, 2010). Physiological needs would be considered the most important and fulfilled first, however self-actualization needs are taken care of......
