California was a land with many possibilities at least that’s what the forty niners thought. In 1848 the gold deposits of California were discovered and the news spread across the world. But on December 5 1848 the president of the United States gave a speech about the gold to encourage western expansion. About 53,000 americans traveled to California during the gold rush. The forty niners had to face many challenges on their way to California such as their journey over sea, their journey over land, and how they were going to make money.

During emergency situation, people have been trained to call 9-1-1 if they need help. From suspicious activities to mass casualty events, the 9-1-1 centers coordinate law enforcement response and first aid. Programs such as “9-1-1 for kids” dedicate all their efforts and resources to teach children what to do in emergency situations. People carry that information has they move forward in life. When one dials 9-1-1, one expects an immediate response and help in times of crisis. Today, Centers around the United States receive an estimate 240 million calls each year. This paper will provide a reader with a history over view of the 9-1-1 centers. The purpose of this paper is to assess the vulnerabilities by studying two possible scenarios; exposure
In 1957 the National Association of Fire Chiefs made the recommendation to use a single number to report fires within a community. Approximately 10 years later in 1967 the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice made the same recommendation that a single number should be used to report all emergency situations and it should be used across the entire nation. This recommendations were made because prior to the 911 system citizens in communities across the country were forced to dial a specific seven digit number in order to reach the providers of fire and law enforcement services within their communities to report an emergency. Then following, these recommendations
9/2/16 This year in 8th grade so far is going wonderful. All of my teachers are amazing and are great at helping me with my work. I can not even explain how great they are. One thing that I want to try to achieve this year at school is getting all of my homework done and turned in ON TIME. Next, I would love to try to keep my grades up to at least...A's B's or C's. Third, I am really super excited to try out to be in this years production of "High School Musical"! It will be a lot of fun if I make, I'm sure. Lastly, I want to make this school year a year to remember.

Day 3, work on the second piece of the “puzzle” and progress with your next task…
Yin Yang 1 in HCC: YY1 is a transcription factor with complex biological functions, including apoptosis, tumorigenesis, development and differentiationYY1 is a member of the Polycomb Group protein family, a group of homeobox gene receptors that play critical roles in hematopoiesis and cell cycle control [26, 27]. The human YY1 gene is located on the telomere region of human chromosome 14 at the segment q32.2. It consists of five highly conserved exons encoding a protein of 14 amino acids in length, and an estimated molecular weight of 44 kDa. The YY1 protein contains four C2H2-type zinc-finger motifs with two specific domains that characterize its function as an activator or repressor. YY1 is a phosphoprotein with a half-life of 3.5 hours.
Old wives' tales are a fun way for parents to teach their kids important lessons. However, some wives' tales are so realistic that many people start believing they are scientifically true. Well, we're coming to the rescue! Below are 10 of the most popular wives' tales debunked by science.
This Little Piggy “This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef, this little piggy had none, this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home.” Many children across the United States grow up only having to worry about how

Communication, in regards to some kind of emergency, has been something that has been around since the day the earth was created. The cavemen communicated with one another about a danger by grunting or throwing rocks at each other to get the attention across, the dinosaurs made noises of distress when something wasn’t right, the cowboy era had guns to shoot in the air or a simple yell for help would suffice, and with the invention of the telephone and television the warnings of emergencies were on their way to what we have today through the internet, television, outside alarms, smart phones and aps. This paper will focus on a little history of the emergency management programs that have evolved over decades into where we are today, as well
911 Days Later “If you need emergency assistance, dial 911 immediately,” this statement is one engrained in every American from the time of birth to adulthood. 911 is known as the universal number to call when someone is in danger, it is the ultimate call for help. The number 911 also holds a deeper meaning consumed by sickening irony brought upon America by the terrorist group known as “Al Queda.”
