Helping Those Affected by Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence has come and gone, leaving behind a series of floods, taking more than fifteen lives, and displacing numerous people that have to be rescued from their home or their vehicles. As is the case during any major disaster, this is a time for the nation to come together and do what they can to help the victims and those that are dealing with Hurricane Florence’s aftermath.
One of the easiest ways to make a difference is by donating to charitable organizations that are working tirelessly to assist where possible, such as the American Red Cross, for example. THERAPY-IV is proud to have donated and encourages its readers and customers to do the same. Thanks to donations, over 10,000 people have been able to go to community shelters and well over 150,000 meals have been served.

The Day of 9/11

On September 11, 2001, the United States of America was attacked by terrorists. They hijacked four planes two of which crashed into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York City. Another plane crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and the last plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Passengers on the plane fought the terrorists trying to prevent the planes from crashing. Around 3,000 people were killed that day and many more trying to save the people trapped in the buildings.
There were nineteen terrorists in the four planes that day, all of whom were from the Middle East. The name of the terrorist group was Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden.
After the devastating attack on the U.S., the United States and its allies went to war in Afghanistan. The Taliban were protecting Osama bin Laden and since 2001 many members of Al Qaeda have been captured or killed. On May 1, 2011, Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan.
The country went through some changes after the attack, they tightened security at airports, in public buildings, and the Department of Homeland Security was created to help protect the nation from terrorism.

The Unique Qualities of the Hammerhead

In terms of looks, the hammerhead shark is definitely one of those sea dwellers you can easily make out among the ocean’s vast assortment of life, largely because of its uniquely-shaped head, which is officially called a “cephalofoil”. Hammerheads can be found swimming in the seas in various parts of the world where warm water exists.
The size of a hammerhead shark typically varies from as small as three feet in length or just over nineteen feet. The shark’s belly is white, which mean the shark is harder to detect when viewed from the bottom. This trait provides the hammerhead an advantage when hunting prey. In regards to prey, hammerhead sharks generally stick to swimming about in large schools during the daylight hours. It isn’t until night falls that it decides to break from the school and embark on a solo hunting trip. Octopus, stingrays, other sharks, and squid are a few examples of the type of sea life the hammerhead likes to incorporate into its diet.
The hammerhead’s cephalofoil provides some distinct visual enhancements. Because of the location of the eyes, the hammerhead has the ability to view what is above and below it at all times. The cephalofoil also serves a useful purpose in helping the hammerhead pin down prey such as stingrays.

Remembering John McCain

The country continues to mourn the loss of Senator John McCain who passed away last Saturday at the age of 81 after suffering from brain cancer. The American politician and former military officer served as a Navy fighter pilot during the Vietnam War. He was held as a prisoner for five years before being released in 1973. McCain ran for president in 2008 as the Republican candidate against Democrat Barack Obama who would go on to win the election.
Born at Coco Solo Naval Air Station on August 29, 1936, John Sidney McCain III was the second of three children born to John S. McCain Jr. and his wife Roberta. When McCain was born, the family was stationed at the American controlled Panama Canal Zone. With a naval officer father as well as a four-star admiral paternal grandfather, John McCain would go on to follow in their footsteps, volunteering for combat duty during the Vietnam War.
It wasn’t until the late 1970s that John McCain became involved in politics after being assigned as the Navy’s liaison to the United States Senate. By the early 1980s, he retired from the Navy and was elected to political office, winning a House of Representatives seat. In 1986, McCain was elected to the U.S. Senate. Despite his conservative views, McCain would develop a reputation for being unafraid to challenge Republican orthodoxy.
John McCain had seven children, including author and The View co-host Meghan McCain.
