In the “1899” series, we saw that the symbol of the inverted triangle with a horizontal line was engraved in several places on the Kerberos ship. At first we thought it might be a shipping company logo that belonged to Henry Singleton, but as soon as we realized that the world we thought was real was just a simulation, we knew the symbol had a much deeper meaning than we had assumed. In addition, the green thumbtack that Elliot had in his possession embodied an ironic notion and somewhere reminded us of the patented human habit of first condemning a practice, then indulging in it later without thinking of its ramifications. So, let’s analyze what the symbol of the inverted triangle and the green bug symbolized in the series “1899”.

Spoilers ahead


What was the significance of the green thumbtack?

The Green Bug was a personification of freedom, especially considering Elliot’s perspective. The little boy who lived with his parents, Daniel and Maura, inside the simulation wanted to keep a bug. Elliot affectionately called the bug Alfred. But Maura told him that he shouldn’t put the insect in a box, because it was against the natural order of the universe, and it restricted his freedom. The naive kid asked his mother how he would see Alfred growing up if he let him. Maura ironically replied that sometimes we have to let go of things in life just because we can’t keep them forever. From that day on, the insect symbolized the notion of freedom for Elliot, although Maura ended up doing the same thing she told her son not to do. She kept Elliot in a simulation, perhaps because she knew he wouldn’t survive long in the real world. She herself went against the natural order, as her desire to be with Elliot superseded everything else. When Elliot entered the pits below the room, we saw that he had used a bug to open the portal that led them to a fabricated memory from the past. We also saw that the bug opened the locked cabin doors and gave access to Maura and Elliot. The simple act of opening the door or gate was tantamount to emancipating a person and breaking all the chains that held him back. Elliot had the bug with him at all times. Perhaps it symbolizes that he was also held captive in the simulation world. Probably the day Maura realizes she can’t keep him in the simulation forever, Elliot will also free Alfred from captivity.

If we see it from a literal perspective, then Elliot’s bug could be a representation of bugs that appear in a computer program. It could be that Daniel and Elliot were trying to plant bugs in the simulation program so that Maura regains her memories, wakes up in reality and regains control of her. Prometheus Project.


What did the inverted triangle in ‘1899’ mean?

According to the ancient science of alchemy, everything that exists, in the physical and spiritual worlds, is a combination of the four elements, i.e. earth, water, fire and air. The earth element is represented by the same inverted triangle symbol with a horizontal line that we saw in Kerberos. The Earth represents the foundation of life, stability and growth. Perhaps the Prometheus project wanted to find the stability and vital aspects of planet Earth on another planet. Perhaps the spaceship was heading to another place in the universe where Maura and Ciaran believed life could exist. Perhaps the inverted triangle also referred to the importance of simulation for the whole project. Maura voluntarily stayed inside the simulation because she wanted to keep her son, Elliot, alive at all costs. But it’s also possible that living inside the made-up reality prepares the characters for the challenges ahead. Perhaps Henry Singleton, Maura or Ciaran would have discovered that it was imperative to make rational decisions and not be swayed by emotions at all costs. Thus, in order to reach a state where one was in complete control of one’s mind, an inner consciousness, represented by the inverted triangle, had to prevail in all who were part of the project. The inverted triangle divided by a horizontal line could also be a literal representation of how the characters’ physical bodies looked in the real world, but they actually existed inside the simulation, which they believed to be their reality.

The inverted triangle could also be symbolic of the introspection and reflection that the characters were led to do. They were given stories like the characters in any game, but the difference was that they were all very tragic and traumatic. No character had a happy past that they could remember without remorse. So maybe it’s all been planned for them to face these moral dilemmas and feel the burden of guilt while somehow understanding that to be successful they’d have to block it out and move on without it. be influenced.

The Nabla symbol (inverted triangle symbol without the horizontal line), usually used in mathematics, also represents a specific style of writing in journalism. The writing style incorporated a concise form that was devoid of any emotion or extravagance. The writing was stiff and deadpan. Some experts believed that while it was gaining popularity in the contemporary world, it had stymied writers from writing top-notch, quality articles and instead focused solely on imparting information. Project Prometheus was a survival mission, and perhaps the sim’s creator realized that getting rid of human emotions was the way to go. Perhaps they wanted to achieve their ends even if it meant creating an impassive world where there was no place for ties and feelings considered signs of fragility.

During the Nazi period, an inverted triangle was used to mark prisoners. The symbol was used as an insignia, where different colors signified the types of crimes they had committed. Kerberos passengers were prisoners of their past, even if everything was made up. Room 1011 was Maura’s prison and she was unable to wake up in the real world. The passengers were also held captive inside a simulation, and over time they began to believe it was their reality, much like prisoners staying in a concentration camp who suffered such trauma. that they lost all hope and forgot that a normal life, a life without torture, could also exist.

But once in a while, there’s time for love.

When it comes to La Brea, Romance often takes a back seat because its characters travel back in time from 10,000 BC to 1988. But once in a while, there’s time for love. Take Eve (Natalia Zea), Levi (Nicolas Gonzalez)and Gavin (Eoin Macken) complicated love triangle; Josh (Jack Martin) and Riley’s (Veronica St. Clair) will-they-or-won’t-they-want relationship; and Ty (Chike Okonkwo) and Paara (Tonantzin Carmelo) come together from two different worlds.

Or how about season 2, episode 7, when a whole new relationship emerged? Lucas (Josh McKenzie) and Veronique (Lily Santiago) are gradually approaching throughout the season. Things really got out of hand when Veronica took care of Lucas after he nearly lost his life to a mysterious illness, and she kissed him. Although caught off guard, Lucas clearly shares his feelings, with the two even holding hands near a fire at the end of the episode.

But what bought these two together? While chatting with NBC Insider, the two actors pointed out their characters’ shared past.

“We had a moment where she had a panic attack in the car in Season 1,” McKenzie said. “And I remember I had spoken to [showrunner] David Appelbaum in the past about my character panicking when he was trapped with his mother [in a Season 1 episode]. And there is a relationship between the two at this moment when he just sees her. He sees her for the first time. And I think a lot of people don’t see it… From that point on, I kind of suspected that there was “a bigger connection going on”.

Santiago added, “I think it’s a big part of his mindset for this season to want to be a different person. Wanting a new chance, wanting to start something where she’s not stuck in this tragedy story. And then Lucas is kind of the only other person in the clearing who had a similar traumatic past. He just lost his mother, he was involved in all the bad things the same way she was. Even though they are completely different things, I think it makes her feel like she can trust him and feel a little understood.”

However, don’t expect too lots of Lucas and Veronica, who are both a bit more reserved with their feelings.

“We’re idiots on set all the time,” McKenzie says of himself and Santiago. “We bring out the gaffe in each other. AAnd so we use it for the characters, because they’re both kind of weird. We had those weird moments where Veronica touches Lucas’ arm and she is not accustomed to physical contact with men who are consensual or wholesome. So they’re both like, ‘What?'”

“We’re like the dirty grungy couple, you know?” joked Santiago. “You have Josh and Riley, who are like your Disney Channel, ‘We’re happy!’ And then there’s Veronica and Lucas, who are like, ‘Understand me, kids!'”

look La Brea on NBC on Tuesdays at 9/8c and the next day on Peacock.

Firewood Demand Rises as Cold Snap Hits Triangle https://coltsneckfair.com/firewood-demand-rises-as-cold-snap-hits-triangle/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 23:47:47 +0000 https://coltsneckfair.com/firewood-demand-rises-as-cold-snap-hits-triangle/ RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The sudden cold front has us turning on the heat and lighting the fireplace.

RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The sudden cold front has us turning on the heat and lighting the fireplace. People selling firewood in the Triangle said they really started to see sales pick up this weekend.

A cool day and a crackling fire – it’s a combination that feels like fall, and Martin Albers of NC Firewood said he’s seen more people looking for firewood lately.

“Last year was such a good year, I sold lumber,” Albers said.

It will still be a while before his supply is ready for this season, but he said a lot of people are already looking.

“I probably get 10 calls a day,” he said. “The cost of energy and heating your home definitely drives people to buy firewood.”

The U.S. Energy Information Administration predicts households will pay more for natural gas, oil and electricity than last winter, but Albers said he’s also seen firewood prices rise.

“The bundles cost, maybe 2 or 3 years ago, 5 or 6 dollars; now you see them for $10 and up,” Albers said.

Firewood prices seem to vary depending on where you shop. Some sellers said they saw higher costs, while others did not.

Vivian Juarez, who sells firewood at the State Farmers Market, said her prices didn’t go up this year, but last year.

She brings her firewood to the Farmer’s Market from a farm in Johnston County, and while a chilly Monday morning didn’t attract too many customers, she said many people bought wood over the weekend .

“It’s busy all day,” she said.

Albers and Juarez stocked up just in time for the cold weather this week.

NASA has confirmed that debris found on the ocean floor off the Atlantic coast of Florida is from the space shuttle Challenger, which exploded on January 28, 1986, killing all seven astronauts on board.

Divers discovered the 20ft (6m) section of Challenger’s hull while searching for downed World War II planes as part of a History Channel documentary series, ‘The Bermuda Triangle: Into Cursed Waters”. To the northwest of the Triangle, the filmmakers found a patch of seabed containing modern-looking debris, partially covered in sand. Given the debris’ proximity to NASA’s Kennedy Space Flight Center in Florida, the filmmakers thought it might be related to the space agency and contacted NASA about the find.

Square-Enixturn-based tactics game, Triangle Strategy, has created a lot of buzz in the JRPG community since it launched on Nintendo Switch in March. Of his nostalgic HD-2D formatto its amazing and New Unique Game+, Triangle strategy more than made a name for himself and built a loyal following.


Recently, Triangle Strategy has earned a full relaunch on PC, which will no doubt expand that audience even further. Triangle Strategy is a big game can take long to beat and complete, or even just to understand the basics. With the growing audience of new gamers in mind, here are some tips and tricks for learning the basics of Triangle Strategy.

Triangle Strategy Battle Basics

Fights can get complicated very quickly in Triangle Strategy, but there are a few basic rules to keep in mind that make any battle more manageable. First, players can follow the turn order in any battle by looking at the bottom of the screen. Here players can see which characters will move next and plan a defense or combo accordingly. It might be a simple feature, but understanding the turn order and the flow of battle can make a huge difference.

Second, when controlling a character, each tile will be a different color, which can be overwhelming if players don’t know what each color means. Blue tiles indicate each space a character can move to and stay outside of an enemy’s current attack range, while purple tiles indicate spaces that character can reach that would be within attack range. enemy attack. Blue tiles may be safer than purple tiles, but the player will have to fight back at some point, and for most characters that means getting in the middle of the action.

Additionally, the red tiles indicate that character’s base attack range. Melee characters will only have a few red tiles directly around them, while ranged characters such as mages and archers will have a wider spread. Finally, there are special attacks that cause area of ​​effect damage, and the range of these are indicated by yellow tiles.

Complete side quests and mock battles to level up

Unlike most RPGs, Triangle Strategy contains no random encounters, which means that players who only stick to the main story battles will quickly find themselves behind the enemy in terms of strength. However, there are ways to level the grind off the beaten path. Red mission markers on the map will progress the story, while all green mission markers indicate side quests. There are many battles available in these side quests, and most of them will be around equal to or lower than the player’s level when available. Therefore, players should research as many as they can before getting into the nitty-gritty.

If players consistently beat all of the side quests and still find the story missions too difficult, they can participate in simulation battles. Starting in Chapter 3, players can access mock battles in the Camp Tavern. These battles are low stakes, but still provide XP, making them a safe place to try out new techniques and skills to use later. Regardless of how they’re used, the side quests and mock battles are definitely worth players’ time.

Experiment with different party members

In Triangle Strategy, the player’s active party in a given battle can have up to 12 characters on the field at a time. That’s a huge amount compared to most RPGs, even other strategy games, and having so many characters to control at once can lead to unique challenges that many players aren’t used to.

For this reason, it’s important for players not to just focus on two or three of their favorite characters and make them much stronger than all the other characters, but to spread that focus across multiple characters. Each character has their own unique skills, strengths, and weaknesses, which cause them to interact with enemies and other party members in different ways. It’s a good idea to experiment with lots of strategies and combos, rather than relying on a few heavy hitters.

Don’t be afraid to lose units

Players can recognize Triangle Strategythe top-down turn-based tactical style combat from franchises like fire emblem Where XCOM. Often these types of games feature permadeath, in which if a character dies during a battle, they will be gone for good. New players with experience with such games may fear losing their favorite characters if they fall in battle, but Triangle Strategy does not have a permadeath mechanism.

If the player loses characters in a given battle, there is no need to reload an old save. As long as the battle is won, these characters will be revived and ready to fight again. Not only does this mean players don’t have to worry about losing access to a Power Plant due to an error, but sacrificing characters can actually be a viable strategy that turns the tide of a fight. .

Iran marks 1979 US embassy takeover amid nationwide protests https://coltsneckfair.com/iran-marks-1979-us-embassy-takeover-amid-nationwide-protests/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 19:10:00 +0000 https://coltsneckfair.com/iran-marks-1979-us-embassy-takeover-amid-nationwide-protests/ DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Iran on Friday marked the takeover of the United States embassy in Tehran in 1979 as its theocracy faces nationwide protests following the death in September of a 22-year-old woman who was arrested by the country’s vice police.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Iran on Friday marked the takeover of the United States embassy in Tehran in 1979 as its theocracy faces nationwide protests following the death in September of a 22-year-old woman who was arrested by the country’s vice police.

Iranian state television broadcast live streams of various commemorations across the country, with some in Tehran holding up signs of the triangle-shaped Iranian drones Russia is now using to strike targets in its war against Ukraine. But while crowds in Tehran appeared large with chador-wearing women waving the Islamic Republic flag, other commemorations around the country appeared smaller, with just a few dozen people attending.

Iran’s hardline chairman Ebrahim Raisi, addressing those gathered outside the former US Embassy building, criticized those protesting against theocracy.

“Anyone who takes the slightest step in the direction of a security breach and riots should know that he is walking in the direction of the enemies of the Islamic revolution,” he said. “The Americans think they can execute the plan they have in place in some countries like Syria and Libya here. What a false dream!”

Those present at the commemoration also waved effigies of French President Emmanuel Macron and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Signs and chants from the crowd shouted, “Death to America! Death to Israel!”

The protests that have rocked Iran for seven weeks following the death of Mahsa Amini mark one of the greatest challenges to the country’s religious leaders since they took power in the 1979 Islamic Revolution. At least 300 Protesters have been killed and 14,000 arrested since the unrest began, according to Human Rights Activists in Iran, a group that monitors the crackdown on protesters.

The Iranian government has not offered an overall death toll, with one state-run newspaper even counterfactually claiming that no one was killed by security forces during the 49 days of protests.

Later on Friday, protests began in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan, which has seen weeks of unrest. Videos online claimed to show people walking through the streets and some throwing rocks, with the crackle of gunfire in the background and rising clouds of tear gas. Some protesters appeared bloodied, while activists said some had been killed. No casualty figures were immediately known.

Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency later reported that protesters burned down a police station in Khash, a town in Sistan and Balochistan, and attacked the local governor’s office.

On Thursday, a Shiite cleric was reportedly shot dead in Sistan and Balochistan, a long-turbulent and predominantly Sunni province.

Hardliners in Iran have long ferried government workers and others to these November 4 protests, which have a carnival-like feel for students and other participants on Taleqani Street in downtown Tehran. .

This year, however, it has remained clear that Iran’s theocracy hopes to energize its hard base. Some signs read “We are obedient to the leader”, referring to the 83-year-old Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all matters of state in the country. The week-long protests have included cries calling for Khamenei’s death and the overthrow of the government.

The annual commemoration marks when student protesters scaled the embassy fence on November 4, 1979, angered by then-President Jimmy Carter, allowing the fatally ill Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to receive treatment for cancer in the United States.

The students quickly took possession of the entire green enclosure. A few staff members fled and hid in the house of Canada’s ambassador to Iran before escaping the country with CIA assistance, a story dramatized in the 2012 film “Argo.”

The 444-day crisis ripped through America, as nighttime images of blindfolded hostages played on TVs across the country. Iran finally let all the captives go the day Carter left office on Ronald Reagan’s inauguration day in 1981.

This enmity between Iran and the United States diminished and increased in the decades that followed. The United States and world powers reached a nuclear deal with Iran in 2015 that drastically reduced its program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions. However, then-President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the deal in 2018, sparking years of tension since.

Late Thursday in California at a rally ahead of the US midterm elections, President Joe Biden also interrupted his speech to address a crowd brandishing cellphones displaying the message “FREE IRAN”.

“Don’t worry, we’re going to liberate Iran,” Biden said in an aside at a campaign rally for Democratic Rep. Mike Levin. He added: “They will be released soon.”

In his Friday speech, Raisi referenced Biden’s comments.

“Maybe he said that because of a lack of focus. … He said we aim to liberate Iran,” Raisi said. ” Mister President ! Iran was liberated 43 years ago, and it is determined not to be your captive again. We will never become a dairy cow.

Biden had said he was open to the United States joining the nuclear deal, but the talks fell through. Since the protests began in mid-September, the US stance appears to have hardened, with officials saying restoring the deal is not a priority amid the protests.

On Friday, some protesters held up giant signs of atoms as a reminder that Iran is now enriching uranium to levels closer to weapons-grade than ever before. Non-proliferation experts warn that Iran now has enough enriched uranium to make at least one nuclear weapon if it so chooses, although Tehran insists its program is peaceful.

The weapon triangle is a must for fire emblem games, and now Nintendo has shared details about the Fire Emblem Engage table of weak points. It took Twitter to confirm which weapons are strong or weak against others. He also explained that leveraging this knowledge will allow allies or enemies to “break” each other.

First, here’s the tweet that goes over the Fire Emblem Engage Weakness chart, with the classic weapon triangle appearing on the left side. As usual, swords are the best axes, axes are strong against spears, and spears beat swords. On the right side is a second graph. He notes that special artes a character might know will be strong against an opponent who uses a bow, throwing knife, or tome to attack.

As for breaking up, that’s a side effect of taking advantage of weaknesses. In addition to inflicting damage, a “pause” can be triggered. When this happens, an enemy cannot counterattack even though their speed would normally allow them to follow your attack. Similarly, if one of your allies is hit by a strong attack against them, they will lose the ability to counter.

Fire Emblem Engage will come to the Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023.

Construction of a new local fire station is expected to begin this week.

The Township of Cascade is scheduled to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 to kick off the renovation project for its new Fire Station 1 at 2865 Thornhills Ave. SE.

The $10.9 million renovation has been underway since 2018 and is the largest capital investment project in Cascade’s history, according to the township. The new station is expected to open in fall 2023.

In the meantime, firefighters from Fire Station 1 will be based in temporary space at an air cargo facility at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

“We appreciate the support and temporary space from our neighbors at Ford International Airport,” Fire Chief Adam Magers said in September. “We look forward to welcoming the community to our new Fire Station 1 next fall.”

A new facility was a major need identified from a facility survey conducted by the township in 2018. Fire Station 1 did not meet national safety and firefighting standards and had already undergone three major renovations, prompting the township to consider a comprehensive renovation project.

Triangle Associates Inc., based in Grand Rapids, was selected by the township council to provide construction services for the new station.

The cost of the renovation will be covered by funds already set aside and by a deposit which will be paid using existing income. The township said it won’t need to ask taxpayers for additional dollars.

More information about the project and schedule are here.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A mass of mostly young people among tens of thousands who gathered to celebrate Halloween in Seoul were trapped and crushed as crowds surged through a narrow alley, killing at least 151 people and injuring 82 others in South Korea. the worst disaster in years.

Rescuers and pedestrians desperately performed CPR on people lying on the streets after the crash in Itaewon’s nightlife district on Saturday night.


What do you want to know

  • Choi Seong-beom, fire chief of Yongsan in Seoul, said the death toll could rise
  • Those killed or injured were mostly teenagers and people in their 20s, according to Choi Seong-beom, fire chief of Yongsan in Seoul.
  • An estimated 100,000 people had gathered in Itaewon for the country’s biggest outdoor Halloween festivities since the start of the pandemic and strict rules on gatherings were enforced.
  • South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol declared a period of national mourning on Sunday and ordered flags at government buildings and public offices to be flown at half mast.

Those killed or injured were mostly teenagers and people in their 20s, according to Choi Seong-beom, fire chief of Yongsan in Seoul. The dead included 19 foreigners, he said, whose nationalities were not immediately revealed. The death toll could rise further, with 19 of the injured in critical condition.

An estimated 100,000 people had gathered in Itaewon for the country’s biggest outdoor Halloween festivities since the start of the pandemic and strict rules on gatherings were enforced. The South Korean government has eased COVID-19 restrictions in recent months and this was the first big chance to go out and party for many young people.

Although Halloween is not a traditional holiday in South Korea, where children rarely go for tricks, it is still a major attraction for young adults, and costume parties at bars and clubs have become extremely popular in recent years.

Itaewon, near where the former headquarters of the US military forces in South Korea operated before it left the capital in 2018, is an expat-friendly area known for its trendy bars, clubs and restaurants and it is the city’s flagship destination for Halloween.

Witnesses say the streets of Itaewon were so densely packed with people and slow-moving vehicles that it was virtually impossible for rescue workers and ambulances to reach the driveway in time to treat the injured.

The Seoul city government said more than 1,000 people called a neighborhood office in nearby Hannam-dong midday on Saturday, reporting that their relatives were out of contact and asking officials to confirm whether they were among those injured or killed after the crash in Itaewon.

Officials initially said 150 people were injured on Sunday morning before later reducing their toll.

National Fire Agency officials did not immediately explain why the tally had been reduced, but said rescuers would have had a clearer idea of ​​casualties as rescue operations progressed and that some of the injured would have been converted to death. It was also possible that some of those who had been slightly injured had returned home during the night and were no longer counted.

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol declared a period of national mourning on Sunday and ordered flags at government buildings and public offices to be flown at half mast. In a televised address, Yoon said supporting the families of the victims, including their funeral preparations, and treating the injured would be a top priority for his government.

He also called on officials to thoroughly investigate the cause of the crash and review the security of other major cultural and entertainment events, including regional festivals, to ensure they go ahead safely. security.

“It is truly devastating. The tragedy and disaster that should not have happened took place in the heart of Seoul in the middle of Halloween (celebrations),” Yoon said during his speech. “I have the heavy heart and I can’t contain my sadness as the president responsible for people’s lives and safety.”

After the speech, Yoon visited Itaewon Alley where the disaster happened. Local TV footage showed Yoon inspecting the litter-filled driveway and being briefed by emergency officials.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the crowds to rush into the narrow, downhill alley near the Hamilton Hotel, a major party spot in Seoul. A survivor said many people fell and toppled “like dominoes” after being pushed by others. The survivor, surnamed Kim, said he was trapped for about an hour and a half before being rescued, as some people shouted “Help me!” and others were out of breath, according to the Seoul-based Hankyoreh newspaper.

Another survivor, Lee Chang-kyu, said he saw around five to six men pushing others before one or two started falling, according to the newspaper.

In an interview with YTN news channel, Hwang Min-hyeok, a visitor to Itaewon, said it was shocking to see rows of bodies near the hotel. He said rescuers were initially overwhelmed, leaving pedestrians struggling to administer CPR to injured people lying in the streets. People were crying next to the bodies of their friends, he said.

Another survivor in his 20s said he avoided being stepped on by managing to enter a bar with an open door in the alley, Yonhap news agency reported. A woman in her twenties surnamed Park told Yonhap that she and others stood along the alley while others caught in the middle of the alley had no escape.

Choi, the fire chief, said the bodies were sent to hospitals or a gymnasium, where bereaved family members could identify them. He said most of the dead and injured were in their 20s.

“Horrible news from Seoul tonight,” British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak tweeted. “Our hearts go out to those currently responding and to all South Koreans at this very trying time.”

Jake Sullivan, the US national security adviser, tweeted that the news of the disaster was “heartbreaking” and said Washington “stands ready to provide the Republic of Korea with all the support it needs”.

South Korea’s latest deadly disaster has also hit young people the hardest. In April 2014, 304 people, mostly high school students, died in the sinking of a ferry. The sinking exposed lax safety rules and regulatory failures; it was blamed in part on excessive, loosely secured cargo and an ill-trained crew in emergency situations. Saturday’s deaths will likely draw public attention to what government officials have been doing to improve public safety standards since the ferry disaster.

It was also the second major disaster in a month in Asia. On October 1, Indonesian police fired tear gas at a football match, causing a crush that killed 132 people as spectators tried to flee.

More than 1,700 response personnel from across the country have been deployed to the streets to help the injured, including about 520 firefighters, 1,100 police and 70 government employees. The National Fire Agency said separately in a statement that authorities were still trying to determine the exact number of emergency patients.

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol issued a statement calling on authorities to ensure prompt treatment of the injured and review the safety of party venues.

It was the deadliest landslide disaster in South Korea’s history. In 2005, 11 people were killed and around 60 others were injured at a pop concert in the southern town of Sangju.

In 1960, 31 people died after being crushed down the stairs of a train station as large crowds rushed to board a train during the Lunar New Year holiday.
