The response of the panel to which the concern was sent was that the use of the bomb would be “an obvious means of saving American lives and shortening the war.” While these scientists did not agree on the issue of its use, all believed it was necessary to control this new technology through international cooperation.
The document “Major Problems in American Foreign Policy” states that, “Another argument which could be quoted in favor of using atomic bombs as soon as they are available is that so much taxpayers’ money has been invested in those projects that the Congress and the American public will require a return for their money.” This means that the United States had already invested in so much money, that they can’t back out of the project. In addition, the United States had just come out of the Great Depression and the American people would hate to see their taxpayers money be wasted and not used.
Were there other military alternatives and if so why they were not pursued? Was the dropping of the atomic bombs justified on a moral level? These are just a few questions today when presenting an argument against the dropping of the atomic bombs.
Oceanography also called oceanology or marine science, is the branch of Earth science that studies the ocean. It covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; and fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries. These diverse topics reflect multiple disciplines that oceanographers blend to further knowledge of the world ocean and understanding of processes within it: biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, and physics as well as geography.
Many cases require alternate defences for those who suffer from mental disorders, this defence is known as Not Criminally Responsible on Account of Mental Disorder also known as NCRMD. A defence such as this is used to explain that the perpetrator had a disorder that made them unaware of the crime they had committed and that the crime was wrong. Applying NCRMD as a defence can be difficult as there are many requirements a person needs to meet before they are deemed not responsible. In some cases, it is hard to prove that the offender had a mental disorder at the time of the crime and that it is a valid defence as to why they committed the crime unknowingly. There is a lot of discussion around NCRMD being successful or unsuccessful and what should happen to the offender if they are deemed NCRMD. A recent case where NCRMD was used as a defence and was successful, was in the case of David Siu. NCRMD is a successful and valid defence if it is used in the right case to protect those in the system with mental disoders.
The British North America Act (BNA) is known as The Act that created Canada. In this thesis statement I will thoroughly explain the Manifest Destiny, and how colonists feared the United States. In 1864 the BNA Act was drafted by the Quebec Conference on Canadian confederation.
Aibileen, on the other hand, hasn’t obtained as much education as Mrs. Skeeter. Aibileen was black, and back in her days, blacks did not have the opportunity to receive the same education as whites did. Aiblieen was a very bright student and would have been very successful if she could have finished school. Even her teacher, Miss Ross, said that she was very intelligent, “You’re the smartest in the class, Abilieen.” Unfortunately, she could not finish school because she had to support her mother with bills that she could not pay herself. She stopped going to school when she was fourteen years old. She instead went to work as a maid and wait on white families. Because of her lack of education, she did not speak very well. She often used slang
At the moment my biggest concern is not having the ideal class schedule—I have my SOAR orientation soon, but right now I am not sure what classes I need to take in order to complete my degree. I’m also curious to see how different community college and university are. Will class be different? Moreover, is the coursework more difficult? I believe there is more pressure to do better now, at CSULB than there was at community college, since the cost is greater and perhaps professors will expect better. And well, final concern will be getting lost on campus and arriving late to class. The community college I attended—Pasadena City College—was small comparing it to CSULB.
For many poor, minorities, and other disadvantaged groups, the country has not made significant progress toward quality education for at-risk youth consistent with specific provisions outlined in the No Child Left Behind Act, failing the hopes of students and their families. When the NCLB Act was signed into law by President George W. Bush on January 8, 2002, it was supposed to represent a new beginning in providing quality school education to young people who come from low-income families and who have special needs. Its purpose was to close the achievement gap between groups of students in elementary and high schools. However, many school districts across the country are still having difficulties in meeting the
The defense presented by Paul University in this case is based on the fact that Ms. Leslie signed a waiver agreement before attending a yoga class and additionally exhibited irresponsible behavior while participating in the class. Paul University is a private university in New York, and sponsors a Recreational Sports Department. This department offered the introductory yoga class to the students at the university however; it was not a required course, not part of the educational mission of the university, but part of a recreational sports program. Furthermore, this recreational yoga class was not art of the interscholastic or intercollegiate sport department at Paul University.
Descriptive representation may not have a positive and significant impact on a politician’s agenda. This case study is on the Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. He was born on May 28, 1971 in Miami, Florida. His parents were born in Cuba, which makes Senator Rubio a Cuban American. He makes a great case study to reflect on the opposite idea of descriptive representation in the political system. It is essential to talk about his parents’ history with immigration in order to understand why he does not represents Latinos, especially Cuban-Americans or other minority groups that he should be representing. His parents immigrated from Cuba to the United States in 1956 before the rise of Fidel Castro, which was
World War II was one of the defining moments of the 20th century. Numerous events during that period are viewed and interpreted with differing opinions; but none have been as fiercely debated as the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. One of the more intriguing differing of opinions came from the people behind the bombs themselves: the key scientists who created the bombs and the politicians and military personnel who were active in dropping the bomb. The scientists involved through the various stages of the project (such as Albert Einstein and Leo Szilard) expressed remorse that they created such a weapon and did not believe the use of it was justified. However he people who dropped the bomb - President Harry Truman and

They would tell his parent that they would help their child with education, but would actually beat them. After james escaped, he inspired to help child slave. After james attended school and got a job he was determined to help child slaves. He gained enough money to establish charity to help other child slaves live him. James Kofi was a strong advocate for rights for child slaves and after he gained enough money he established a charity for child slavery
Students often leave high school with the ability to recite the quadratic formula from memory or finding the velocity of a hypothetical car driving off of a cliff. However, it is rare to find a student who has the basic knowledge to allow them to function in life on their own as the heavy dependence on common core and courses with rigor prevent them from taking the classes that would benefit them beyond their life as a student. Fortunately, the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) aims to alleviate this with a vast amount of community service projects and hands-on experiences.
When the United States created the atomic bombs during World War II, American officials questioned when and where the bombs would be used. A select group of people comprised of, “government officials, military advisors, and scientists” were brought together in order to decide how the United States should proceed with the new
