The Pisa Tower

The leaning tower of Pisa or simply the tower of Pisa is the campanile or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. It is situated behind the cathedral and is the third oldest structure in Pisa's cathedral square after the cathedral and baptistry.

Although intended to stand vertically, the tower begin leaning southeast soon after the onset of construction in 1173 due to a poorly laid foundation and loose substrate that has allowed the foundation to shift direction.The height of the tower is 55.86m from the ground on the lowest side and 56.70 on the highest side.The tower has 294 or 296 steps because the seventh floor has two fewer steps on the north-facing staircase. the towel leans at angle of 3.97 degrees.

The construction of the tower of Pisa was performed in three stages over a period of about 200 years. Construction of the fist floor of the white marble campanile began on August 9, 1173 a period of military success and prosperity. This first floor is surrounded by pillars with classical, leaning blind arches. Today it is still unscarred from centuries of weather and age.

The Titanic

I read this article yesterday through the internet. I think everyone knows about the ship named Titanic, but not everyone discover about the history.

The Titanic started production in March. Titanic was included with many facilities that make people enjoyed. The size and luxurious make the ship as a legend even before the first voyage.

The Titanic was officially launched from Southampton, England on April 10 1912 carrying more than 2,200 passengers and crews. The ship was provided with only 16 lifeboats with capacity of 1,708.

The Titanic sailed first to Cherbourg, France to take additional passengers and continue to Queenstown,Ireland. The first 3 days of the voyage they did not faced any problem and also on the fourth day. On 14 April, the Titanic received 5 ice warnings but Captain Edward Smith decided not to slow down and continue on 21 knots (25mph). At 11.50 pm, Freed fleet spotted an iceberg and warned the bridge. First Officer William Murdoch ordered the ship to turn hard to port and the engine room was signaled to reverse direction. The ship did move slightly but could not avoid the iceberg. The ship crashed with the iceberg causing compartments to begin filling with water.

25 minutes later, the ship officer ordered to launch the lifeboat. Instead of 68 passengers, the first lifeboat was carried only 28 passengers. When the last boat was launched, there were more than 1,500 people left on the ship.

Around 2.10 pm the rear of ship was raised because the front side of the ship was fileed with water cause the ship to split into two. The ship slowly sunk. More than 1500 peoples were lost in the ocean.

many attempts have been made to find the wreck, until 1985, an expedition led by Robert Ballard and Jean-luis to discover the famous ship

They are some other symptoms such as fever, chills, night sweats, flu-like symptoms or feeling fatigued. The word leukemia which mean white blood is derived from the disease's name sake high white blood cells counts that most leukemia patience have before treatment. Frequently, these extra white blood cells are immature and dysfunctional. These excessive number of cells can also interfere with the level of other cells, causing a harmful imbalance in a blood count.

There are some causes that cause the leukemia such as chemical exposure and some of that from genetic.

For the treatment, most of leukemia are treated with pharmaceutical medications. some are also treated with radiation therapy. in some cases, a bone marrow transplant is useful..

i know a person who suffer from this disease. now, she already passed away. hope she will rest in peace. Al-fatihah.
