Many small suppliers received contracts and many of the rivets were evidently of inferior quality. Later, when the Titanic hit the iceberg, it was not the steel plates but the rivets that gave way, opening up a seam that ran for more than feet. What if the rivets had been of higher quality?
Artist’s work sank with the Titanic
Perhaps fewer compartments would have been breached and we would be remembering only the anniversary of a near-tragedy. There have been many other man-made disasters before and since the Titanic, but none has illustrated more compellingly what we can learn from our past mistakes. If there is an ultimate epitaph for the Titanic and its ill-fated passengers and crew, it is that they were the victims of human errors.
And maybe the atmospheric conditions also contributed to the accident itself. I'll want to read the full article. But I don't think it changes any of the other "what if's" and the basic point of my essay about hubris and human errors. Speaking of "hubris and human errors", one factoid that sticks with me from the Titanic tale relates to "experts". At the Titanic hearings that followed the sinking the experts chortled at the witnesses that said they saw the Titanic break into two pieces.
Decades later, "what do you know", on the bottom of the sea were two pieces - invoking a ghostly echo of laughter at experts that assure the ever compliant public.
It makes you wonder about what the experts are telling us today. How about those financial engineers that created models to assure securities agencies and investors that mortgage backed securities were fool-proof would spread the risk and should have AAA credit ratings. Funny thing, they left out of their models the historical data for the Great Depression housing price collapse because it was not "relevant" in an age when prices could only go up. Talk about hubris.
We're all still paying for that one. Peter Corning, Ph. He taught for many years at Stanford University, and is the author of several books on biology and society.

Narrative Policy Analysis. Joughin then splashed topside again, where he took it upon himself to begin throwing deck chairs overboard, with an eye to filling the water with impromptu floatation devices. The baker was standing on the stern when the ship broke in half. Deftly moving through swarms of people, Joughin made it to the stern rail of the ship. At exactly a. As with all surviving Titanic crew members, a. Even today, the myth persists that the human body cannot withstand more than a few minutes in the ocean.
Thus, many people thrown into the sea assume that cold shock is the icy grip of death closing around them.
In reality, the cold shock ends after 90 seconds. Even in the winter waters of the North Atlantic, an average-sized adult still has 10 minutes before going numb and at least an hour before the heart stops. Regardless, cold shock was a stage that many Titanic victims did not survive. In the panicked flailing of those first minutes, many drowned or dramatically sped up their loss of body temperature. But Joughin, who had made sure to cinch his lifebelt before going in, met the ice-choked North Atlantic with a stiff upper lip of almost mythic proportions. First, he delayed immersion; among those who went into the water that night, Joughin was the absolute last to get wet.
Second — and most important — he managed to stay calm and strategize a way out of the water. This is a tragedy seen all too frequently by first responders: the disaster victims who panic and die while their salvation is right in front of them. The lost hiker who walks right past a trail; the fire victim who pushes rather than pulls on a fire exit; the aircraft pilot who misses the single button that would prevent a fatal crash. Joughin spent nearly two hours floating in darkness.
