Happy World's Oceans Day

I thought I would take today to write about the state of the Gulf of Mexico due to British Petroleum's stupidity. Because they decided to tell the people on the oil rig to speed up progress, they became reckless and stressed and made a mistake. When the rig exploded, not only did it cause a HUGE oil spill, but it also killed 11 workers.

The Selfishness of Americans and the Impact it has on Foreign Citizens.

 Today was my mother's birthday and what started out as a normal dinner at a Greek place near our apartments turned into much more. The woman who owns the restaurant has been going through some problems trying to understand how American children are put through what they are put through, and it turns out Greece and France are much better places for children. She grew up the daughter of a French diplomat and sat with presidents and other diplomats at dinner and and flew on planes where children were allowed to run around and be children.

What Makes A Natural Disaster Disastrous Enough?

Submitted by Grace Roulet on Sun, 04/18/2010 - 03:21.

In the 2000s, there have been two HUGE international natural disasters that the United States has sent aid for and one that, as far as I know, we have not really helped much. The first of the two the United States has spent millions in aid for is the tsunami in 2004. This disaster was caused by a whopping 9.3 magnitude earthquake that sent a wall of water crashing down on countries in the Indian Ocean. This disaster caused around 184,167 deaths, 125,000 injuries, about 45,725 people to go missing, and around 1.69 million people were displaced.
