Bermuda: The Triangle of Death
The Bermuda Triangle is one of the most terrifying places imaginable considering the fact that so many ships and planes disappear each year. Many people believe these disappearances to be due to ideas of supernatural or other unworldly events occurring, however those ideas are nothing but hoaxes used to save companies from being sued. Plane manufacturers and airlines, such as British South American Airways, are hiding the fact that planes are disappearing due to mechanical problems telling people the disappearances were caused by aliens or by the lost city of Atlantis. The manufacturers did this in order to save their businesses from bad publicity.
Airlines and plane manufacturers are not only able to deceive the public, but they are also able to make the public believe something else entirely. In the mid-1900s, planes were still new so they were definitely going to have some problems. However, companies that manufactured these planes still did not want people to know that it was their fault that these disappearances occurred. In order to cover up this fact, these companies had to make up a story to draw the people’s attention away from them. “At 2,000 feet you’d be leaving very little altitude for maneuver. In any serious in-flight emergency they could have lost their height in seconds and gone into sea” (“Bermuda Triangle plane mystery ‘solved’”). Companies along with the help of historians have come up with many different excuses for these disappearances. The most common excuse is that aliens were to blame for these vessels’ disappearances. “A downed spaceship lurking deep underwater, its dangerous alien mechanics interfering with our own technology? Perhaps. Or perhaps the Bermuda Triangle, along with another similarly rumored triangle in the Pacific off the coast of Japan, serves as a portal for interplanetary, interdimensional creatures” (“Top 10 Bermuda Theories”). In their mind the BSAA believed that lying was the only thing that they could do to make sure they remained in business. The BSAA’s attempts to mislead the public have, for the most part, worked because many people do not suspect the BSAA and believe other things are to blame.
There are multiple theories about the many plane disappearances in Bermuda. Some of said theories, while farfetched, are more or less easy to understand. Aliens seem possible only because there is no proof yet against them. Another theory made is the lost city of Atlantis, “Those who believe Atlantis once lay deep beneath the Bermuda Triangle argue that the remnants of the intense energy crystals that were once used to fuel the city are now interfering with airplane and ship electronics, causing them to go haywire” (“Top 10…”). Although these may be somewhat reasonable ideas, they are nothing compared to the real truth. Although other theories are explainable, they are more easily disproved. Aliens could not possibly be the reason for these disappearances because while there is little to no proof saying that aliens do not exist, there is less saying that they do exist. As for Atlantis, the only proof that Atlantis exists is a man who proclaims to have seen an underwater pyramid. However, this man has no proof other than his word. The BSAA, along with similar airlines, are not only hiding its plane’s malfunctions, but are also trying to pass it off as alien activities. “The aircraft's heater was notoriously unreliable and had failed en route, and one of the compasses was found to be faulty” (“Bermuda…”). Although the BSAA (and other airlines) are the primary conspirators, the government also plays a part in deceiving the public.
While the BSAA, along with other airliners, are the main conspirators of the Bermuda Triangle theories, the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center has also gotten involved in order to protect its secrecy. The BSAA and AUTEC can both benefit from lying to the public about what really happens in the Bermuda Triangle. The AUTEC (Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center) is supposedly located in the Bermuda Triangle and is a top-secret U.S. Research Center that is sometimes referred to as the Underwater Area 51 (“The Deadly Bermuda Triangle”). So far the AUTEC’s intentions/research has remained a mystery. The BSAA and AUTEC are able to help each other by spreading the lies that they have thus far. Having the help of the BSAA will benefit AUTEC solely for protection purposes. The BSAA is able to spread the different rumors around thus making the Bermuda Triangle a place many people would not want to visit. This makes it so that AUTEC and its studies remain undiscovered by the public. As well as the AUTEC, the BSAA will benefit from spreading around different theories. Should the public actually believe the rumors, it will stop questioning whether or not the disappearances were a malfunction caused by the BSAA itself. The BSAA and the AUTEC have come up with many absurd stories in an attempt to keep the public from finding out their true objectives.
The BSAA has done all it can in order to hide what happened to its planes. The BSAA alone has had multiple planes disappear in the Bermuda Triangle. “On 30 January 1948, a BSAA Avro Tudor IV plane disappeared without a trace. Twenty-five passengers and a crew of six were on board. No bodies or wreckage were found” (“Bermuda”). After an investigation, the disappearance was considered to be an unsolvable mystery (“Bermuda”). The BSAA completely made sure that no one would find out about the plane’s true whereabouts. When the media found out about the Star Tiger’s disappearance, the BSAA did everything they could to bribe Lord Macmillan into keeping his mouth shut over what actually happened. By now not many people wonder about what happened to the Star Tiger. So far the BSAA has relied on money and power to keep the various disappearances hidden, but that will not last for much longer. If the truth is not uncovered, soon many people will be at risk should they choose to keep riding on planes made by the BSAA.
Now that this story is available to anybody, it is time for everyone to finally know the truth about the Bermuda Triangle. Should the past events of the BSAA disappearances be forgotten and disregarded as unsolvable, more disappearances will most certainly arise. People not only have a right to know that the BSAA is hiding its technically unstable planes, but they also need to know. Many people who do not realize what they are getting themselves into are risking their lives every single day by riding the planes made and run by the BSAA. Although a few people exist that do know about the disappearances but still ride the planes because they are not able to relate it back to the BSAA. Many people will lose their lives simply trying to visit a family member in a different location. Soon other airlines will start to screw up with their technical difficulties and those airlines will as well be disregarded as accidents and unsolvable mysteries. This will eventually cause people to be too scared to ride planes. Not just America’s, but the entire world’s economy will also take a major plummet. People have a right to know this information because knowing could ultimately save their lives. Knowing it could also cause people to take action and finally put an end to Bermuda Triangle disappearances. However all of this can be avoided should everyone find out and understand what goes on within the Bermuda Triangle, and what really causes the planes to disappear.
In order to save their reputation, the BSAA blamed the disappearances of their planes in the Bermuda Triangle on aliens and Atlantis. However the BSAA is really just using this as a way to cover-up the fact that the disappearances were caused only by planes made with poor craftsmanship. These disappearances are not caused by supernatural or unworldly events, only by companies not wanting to face lawsuits. The Bermuda Triangle itself is not scary, what is scary is not knowing whether or not the planes that fly through the Bermuda Triangle are reliable enough to make it through a safe voyage.

The Devil's Triangle In Bermuda And Puerto Rico

...The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is an area bounded by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico where ships and planes are said to vanish into thin air or deep water. Recently, some people have wondered if there is a Bermuda Triangle connection in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, even though the jet went missing halfway around the world. The term “Bermuda Triangle” was coined in 1964 by Vincent Gaddis in the men’s pulp magazine Argosy. Though Gaddis first came up with the phrase, a much more famous name propelled in into international popularity a decade later. Charles Berlitz also had a strong interest in the paranormal. He believed not only that Atlantis was real, but also that it was connected to the triangle in some way, a theory he proposed in his bestselling 1974 book “The Bermuda Triangle”. The mystery has since been promoted in thousands of books, magazines, television shows, and websites. Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, the Bermuda Triangle consists of a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, and is defined by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. It stretches across less than a thousand miles on any one side.The abnormalities on the sea were first noted in 1950 by Edward Jones in the...

... 1,586 Major Paper #3 The Bermuda Triangle Mysteries Strange events seem to have taken place in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the United States. In and around an area formed by an imaginary line connecting Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, a significant number of ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The Bermuda Triangle is a place where more than 100 planes and ships vanished into thin air, and more than 1,000 lives have been lost without a single body or even a piece of wreckage from the vanishing planes or ships have been found. Besides the Bermuda Triangle, it is also popularly known as the Devil’s Triangle, Limbo of the Lost, the Hoodoo Sea, the Twilight Zone, and the Port of Missing Ships (Without a Trace). Even though in the Bermuda Triangle a substantial documentation shows numerous incidents to have been inaccurately reported, a number of aircraft and surface vessels have mysteriously disappeared. There are many theories that try to explain the disappearances of ships and air planes. One prophet has predicted that one day the space warp will free all the vessels and they will return to their home ports with the skeleton of the crews. Another speculates that the crew may be alive, the same age as when they left, and they will be able to reveal the secret of what lies beyond the shadowy edge of the Bermuda Triangle. In the other hand, accident investigators suspect that atmospheric......

Mysterious Places

...Mysterious Places Mamyan Ann Our environment is full of magical, mystical, and mysterious places that defy explanation.  There are treasures yet to be found, stone carvings we don't yet understand, and architectural feats to be explained.  Even as we live in what we consider to be the most technologically advanced society in all history, there are currently no air-tight explanations for most of the true wonders of our planet and beyond. The Great Pyramids of Egypt are the oldest structures on earth, contain compelling evidence of a civilization far more advanced than ours, and most likely existed thousands of years before the great flood.  With their original exteriors, they could probably be seen from the moon. The Mayan Civilization left behind incredible structures containing precise calculations and prophecies regarding the exact date of end of the world........Do you know that date? A site being studied on the side of Mt.  Ararat in Turkey may be the remains of the Biblical Noah's Ark. Scientists are currently quietly investigating a site off the western tip of Cuba that some say may be part of the lost city of Atlantis. We know less about the bottom of our own seas than we do about outer space.  There is a form on the surface of Mars that strongly appears to resemble an Egyptian face carving.  Is there a link? These are just a few of the many fascinating and mysterious places we intend to visit on these pages.  From......

Rhetorical Analysis Of Teenage Girls By Therapist Mary Pipher

...She ends her allusion to Shakespeare’s Hamlet with a description of Ophelia’s death: “dressed in elegant clothes that weigh her down, she drowns in a stream filled with flowers.” The river and elegant clothes serve as a metaphor for the stifling societal expectations of young women that sap them of their personality, drowning their old, adventurous selves. Furthermore, the juxtaposition of a flower-filled stream and elegant clothes with death shows the irony of society’s demands — hundreds of advertisements by multimillion dollar companies cater to teenage girls, each advocating for a separate type of individuality or creativity like wildflowers in an endless stream of suggestion, but they coalesce to prevent the growth of natural individuality and creativity. Furthermore, Pipher argues that increasing societal expectation of dependance promotes self-sufficient girls to give up their autonomy. She describes this phenomenon by referencing fairytales, illustrating princesses who “wander away from home...

Importance of Culture

...The importance of culture – myths, symbols, arts, science, history. The real question is whether the culture can influence the way we think and experience the world. Clearly we have to realize that the culture is something that lies within us, around us, and is an integral part of our being. It defines the way we treat others and ourselves. Culture forms an important element of social life of a man. It gives the individuals or groups the feelings of unity with the group. What exactly is culture, anyway? Term "culture" is based on a term used by the Ancient Roman orator Cicero in his Tusculanae Disputationes, where he included a cultivation of the soul or “cultura animi” using an agricultural metaphor for the development of a philosophical soul, understood theologically as the highest possible ideal for human development. In Latin “culture” is “cultus agri”, which is crop land, in other words, a subjugation of nature by a man. The meaning of this phrase developed gradually, from its simplicity to a more complex form. It includes everything that has been ever made by a particular group of people, independently of a material world (architecture, clothes) but also a spiritual one. Just a single person simply cannot create culture, so we can talk about the beginnings of culture from the moment when our ancestors started to form groups. Originally culture was passed on as thoughts and ideas, but then with invention of symbolism also art and science. It is permanent but also......

When the herds moved, people moved after them because they were dependent on the animals for food. It is therefore suspected that the herds led the people out of Asia by the north-east, across the Bering Strait and into North America.

Notion of carnival as one of “the decentralising forces that militate against official power and ideology. Carnival as the interruption of dominant discourses “to surrender the critical and cultural tools to the dominant class and in this sense, carnival can be seen above all else as a site of urgency.” Mikhail Bakhtin in Rabelais and His World- Uses the term in reference to carnivals of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Bakhtin one of the key theorists on carnivals. Bakhtin-Carnivals allowed people mostly from the under class to rebel momentarily against social conventions and the class and financial hierarchies that structured society.

...Chapter 1 I Get What I Pay For Welcome to Red Grove. Population 200 “Now, two hundred and one,” I murmured as I passed the painted wooden sign in my trusty red Jeep. Small towns like Red Grove always made me think of horror movies as if a gap-toothed, overall-wearing butcher might hobble out of his deep woods shanty, pitchfork in hand, at any moment. The town had an off the charts creepy factor. On my right, a dark forest worthy of the Brothers Grimm. On my left, a cemetery edged in a weathered wrought iron fence. I think there were more than two hundred headstones. More dead than living. Nice. There must be some mistake. I came here to start over. Could a new life be hiding behind the unappealing rural exterior? My promised house remained a mystery. I double-checked the notebook with my father’s scrawled directions resting on the passenger’s seat next to me. Technically, I’d lived in Red Grove as a child, but we’d moved before I turned two. I didn’t remember the town at all or the residents, living or dead. I shifted my attention back to my driving. “Holy shit!” I proclaimed as I overcorrected the wheel, and my foot drifted from the gas. The man on the side of the road was so attractive I could’ve died—literally. He was planting something. A tree, I think. Every time his shovel hit the dirt, a ripple coursed through his shoulders and down his stomach. I raised an eyebrow at the glint of sun on tanned, shirtless skin. Dark hair, low slung jeans.
