The Mysterious Bermuda Triangle

For years, many planes and ships have disappeared in the area of the Bermuda Triangle. In my essay I'm going to try to find out and tell you, my fellow students, why this phenomenon is occurring.

The Bermuda Triangle is an area in the world located to the Southeast of the United States and it is also referred to as the "Devil's Triangle". The triangle is formed by drawing imaginary lines from Melbourne, Florida, to Bermuda, to Puerto Rico, and back to Melbourne, Florida. The area of the triangle is 440,000 square miles.

One of the many controversial things about the Bermuda Triangle is that there have never been any wreckage or bodies found from any reported missing boat or plane. But there have been discoveries of planes with bodies in them on the bottom of the ocean off the coasts. None of the found planes were reported missing. That could be because of the numerous amounts of planes that disappear in the Bermuda Triangle. Charles Berlitz explains the number that disappear, "In the period 1974-76 more than six hundred yachts and other pleasure craft have disappeared off the coasts of the United States, a considerable percentage of these losses occurring within the Bermuda Triangle"(13). He also talks about an interview with the press, "Recently, during a press interview in San Francisco, I was asked by a reporter whether any disappearances had been noted recently. I replied that a plane had vanished the previous weekend suggesting that the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle, far from being a footnote to the past history of the sea, are still continuing on the average of a plane about every two weeks and a ship or yacht almost weekly"(15).
There are many disappearances within the Bermuda Triangle that we can't be told about. (Only because they happen to the Navy or the Coast Guard.) "These probable reasons include the…...

Bermuda Triagle

... 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......

Bermuda Triangle

...Bermuda Triangle The legend of the Bermuda Triangle or commonly known as the “Devils Triangle” probably started sometime around 1945, when a squadron of five Navy Avenger airplanes disappeared on a training flight, since then unexplained disappearances in the Bermuda triangle have been reported. In 1958 A Douglas DC-3 aircraft containing 32 people went missing, no trace of the aircraft was ever found. Similarly, in 1955 a yacht was found that had survived three hurricanes but was missing all its crew. What is that is doing all this is it some supernatural power or some sensible scientific reason behind this. We've all heard myths about compasses in the Bermuda Triangle spinning wildly out of control, or airplanes and ships just vanishing from the radar and nothing not even the wreckage was ever found, similarly stories of alien abduction of humans and UFO sightings add to the drama. Scientists and geologist have tried to give all these claims a rational reason. Firstly the area of Bermuda triangle is home to the Puerto Rico trench, the deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean furthermore it is frequently hit by strong hurricanes, wind storms and huge tidal waves these two things work simultaneously with the crazy weather bringing down the vessel and taking it deep into the ocean, so deep that it is almost impossible to find it. Secondly, deep beneath the surface of the Bermuda Triangle lie pockets of trapped methane gas, this methane gas could bubble to the surface, reducing the...

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......

The Mysterious Blogger

...The Mysterious Blogger Rafael A Berastain ETH/316 Nov 14, 2013 Professor Jones The Mysterious Blogger Despite a new computer security system, someone, who must be a company employee, is still posting company information on a private blog site. Most of the information is available elsewhere, but the leak concerns you. One of your other employees determines who is posting the information, at home and without company authorization. The other employee also hacks into the blogger’s home computer and discovers a material that is not allowed in the company computers. The ethical issues on “The Mysterious Blogger” were whether the information obtained by Jamal Moore, the IT Tech was enough to discipline Aaron Webb, the blogging employee for violating the NDA policy. In one side, the company has an employee named Aaron Webb that is posting illegal blogs and violating some of the company policies. In the other hand, the company has another employee, Jamal Moore that is trying to help somehow to unsolved this mystery blogger. The only thing is that Jamal is also violating some of the company policies by letting me know about the situation. After finishing the Ethic simulation, I notice that my decision was only made on thinking only what is right and also thinking that I did not want anybody to think that I chose anybody sides. In order for the company employees to learn the consequences of wrong actions, they need it to see what the outcome was. Not really paying attention......

Bermuda

...I. The Myth of the Bermuda Triangle A: Examples of theories and historical events. B: Environmental reasoning of the location. II. The Popular Mystery of Flight 19 A: The legend of six fighter planes disappearing on a routine flight. B: How the Bermuda Triangle got its name from this mystery. C: The true occurrence of how the mission went and explanation of phenomena. For years there has been an unsolved mystery of disappearances of boats and planes with no trace of evidence left behind. All of these conspiracies had relevance as to the whereabouts of these lost travelers. The locations of these disappearances were within a geographical triangle in the Atlantic Ocean. The corners of this legendary triangle were between three axis points: Miami, Florida; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Bermuda. After some question this so-called triangle gained the name "Devils Triangle," serving to peoples superstitions that the devil was fooling with lost travelers. It also brought to question whether aliens had a selected spot on earth for abduction or could it be a vortex that warps the living to another dimension. Could all of these questionable losses just be a coincidence that conjured up a myth? In the last hundred and fifty years forty ships and twenty planes have disappeared carrying over a thousand people into an oblivion that is yet to be explained (Kusche 10). Even the US Coast Guard is baffled by these series of events. There are also cases of disappearances during search...

Bermuda the Triangle of Death

...Sophomore Literature and Composition 11 March 2013 1355 Words 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......

The Rhetorical Triangle

...The Rhetorical Triangle Unit 1 IP Romeo McIver AIU Online University Abstract This paper will discuss the effectiveness and the differences of the two videos I viewed; “The Heart Truth for Women” and “Create the Life You Love” by BeautiControl. I will explain whether or not they were successful or not successful in their presentation, provide examples why one video presentation was more effective. The term rhetoric is used to describe the effectiveness of language and how incorporating certain aspects into writing and speech can lead to improved clarity and persuasion. If used correctly, rhetoric should include ethos, pathos, and logos, also known as the rhetorical triangle, in order to have a well rounded argument. Although opinions on the 'real' definition of rhetoric differ, overall it means correct usage of structure, argument, and support to create an overall understanding of the point the writer or speaker is trying to convey. Both videos were very informative; Create the Life You Love speaker was very clear on the subject of flexibility and financial freedom of women creating their own destiny with opportunities that are truly limitless. The video was very successful because the speaker...

The Mysterious Kingdom

...that almost touches me. I hopelessly closed my eyes but the pain I imagined did not happen. I felt someone pushed me and I fell into the lake. The water was cold and freezing. I tried to swim but I could not even see anything as there was darkness all around. My vision was blurry until I finally saw some light above. I used all my strength and swam towards the light, until I was finally out of the lake. I started gasping for air. I never thought that the air fillings into my lungs will be such a good feeling. I looked around; there were my friends’ worried looking face. I was back. I looked at the key in my hand and I finally know that, maybe it was not a dream after all. I looked at the sun above me and said goodbye silently to the mysterious boy and that place I would never go to again. I never know, maybe it’s not the end of everything. It’s just the beginning of it…...

Fraud Triangle

...Worldcom Fraud Investigation Use the Fraud Triangle and Fraud Scale to critically analyse the actions of Bernie Ebbers and Scott Sullivan during the WorldCom saga/ What does your analysis suggest? Dennis Greer’s fraud triangle is a key framework in analysing the ‘factors that cause someone to commit occupational fraud’ (ACFE-The Fraud Triangle, Association of Certified Fraud, Examiners Available from:http://www.acfe.com/fraud-triangle.aspx [January 2014]). The three elements that make up the model are perceived pressure, perceived opportunity and rationalisation. In reference to the events of WorldCom, which has been labelled to date, ‘one of the biggest accounting scandals in history’ (CNN Money- WorldCom’s Financial Bomb, Available from:http://money.cnn.com/2002/06/25/news/worldcom/. [June 2002]) the initial pressures that were the driving force behind the actions of CEO, Bernie Ebbers and CFO Scott Sullivan are quite vast. Firstly Ebbers, was faced with the managerial strain of financial pressure on management due to the decline in the economic environment and the high expectations of Wall Street. As a result, he was aware that the key to growth was in acquisition and mergers, which required an illusion of a solid investment portfolio and therefore ‘a heavy dependence on the performance of WorldCom shares’ (Forbes- Bernie Ebbers Guilty, Available from: http:// www.forbes.com/2005/03/15/cx_da_0315ebbersguilty). In addition, Ebbers was......

The Fraud Triangle

...The Fraud Triangle Abstract In 2002 SAS No. 99, Consideration of Fraud in a Financial Statement Audit describes the difference between material misstatements due to errors and intentional fraud and defines two types of intentional fraud: fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriation of assets. SAS No. 99 also introduced D. R. Cressey’s theory of the fraud triangle which is so named because it consists of three conditions that are generally present when fraud occurs: incentive/pressure, opportunity, and attitude/rationalization. Introduction This paper reflects on SAS No. 99 to describe the difference between material misstatements due to errors and intentional fraud which includes fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriation of assets. It also describes the fraud triangle theory proposed by D. R. Cressey. Think back to when you were in elementary school during fire safety week when the fire department would come and visit. Do you recall the fireman explaining what can be referred to as the fire triangle? That is, the description of what is necessary for fire to exist and continue. In order to create fire you need three things: fuel, oxygen, and heat. To put out (or prevent) the fire you would need to remove one of those three sides to the triangle. You could stop the fire by removing either the fuel, oxygen, or heat. This is a simple analogy for the fraud triangle. Just as there are three sides to the fire triangle there are three sides......

The Bermuda Triangle is one of the strangest and bizarre mysteries.
