Jobs with the highest death and casualty rates around the world
Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg
Let’s face it; most of us would prefer to not work a day or night job. The ideal life would be to just lounge, relax, and enjoy what life has to offer. Unfortunately, bills have to be paid, and the only way to get the money to do that is to get a job. Depending on where you are in life, you might be working in fast food, retail, childcare, or you might have even reached the corporate level of the workforce. If you enjoy your job, consider yourself lucky among millions of people who hate their jobs, don’t have a job at all, or work a dangerous job that makes death loom over them everyday. Don’t believe us? Here are ten of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
Underground welders have a very dangerous job since they have to hang out underwater all day and every day with welding machines. Welding above water is dangerous enough as it is, but underwater includes a plethora of more risks. There is the risk of decompression sickness, shock, explosions, and wear and tear on dental fillings. Annually, out of 200 workers, about 30 lose their lives on the job. You can bet that the benefits for the grieving families should be decent.
Crab fisherman have a risky job being 26 times more dangerous than the average job, with 128 workers dying in 2007. Causes of death includes being thrown overboard, drowning, and hyperthermia. If you have ever seen any of the reality shows with fishing, boating, and more, then these statistics aren’t a huge shock. Speaking of deaths by forces of nature, logging has become quite a dangerous job with the risk of equipment failure (getting injured from chainsaws) and getting crushed by falling trees. If you get antsy around heights, then you might want to avoid the steel working career. These are the guys who build multi story skyscrapers and spend their day hundreds of feet in the air. Today, steel workers now have harnesses to help avoid a deathly fall, but they are still quite at risk at their job with the risk of falling construction equipment and the risk of their harness failing.
If you have ever looked at a bull rider and thought, “I’d like to try that,” then think again. While there are cash rewards for staying on a crazy bull for eight seconds, the risks outweigh the benefits with significant injuries about every 15 rides. Risks include getting crushed to death, stabbed by a bull’s horn, and other physical injuries. Prostitutes also have a mighty dangerous job with the risk of getting arrested, involved in drug use, exposure to STD’s and other diseases, plus the risk of getting beaten or killed. Then we have microchip manufacturers, who are exposed to the deadly chemicals used to make the chips, which studies have shown to have severe long term effects.
Next time you feel like complaining about your job, perhaps take a moment to consider that it could be much worse than sitting behind a cash register or getting yelled at by an angry customer.

For some projects, nails and screws alone just aren’t enough. For those situations, the right solution is the addition of a heavy duty construction adhesive. Unlike wood glue, a high-quality heavy duty construction adhesive like LIQUID NAILS Brand Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive will stick to almost anything, including lumber, concrete, drywall, and brick veneer. Besides adding holding power, construction adhesive can also fill gaps between surfaces. Choose one that remains flexible so it won’t crack and fall away when the materials move.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
A great video of new technology military vehicle for the US Military.
The United States Armed Forces are the federal armed forces of the United States. They consist of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The President of the United States is the military’s overall head, and helps form military policy with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), a federal executive department, acting as the principal organ by which military policy is carried out.
From the time of its inception, the military played a decisive role in the history of the United States. A sense of national unity and identity was forged as a result of victory in the First Barbary War and the Second Barbary War. Even so, the Founders were suspicious of a permanent military force. It played an important role in the American Civil War, where leading generals on both sides were picked from members of the United States military. Not until the outbreak of World War II did a large standing army become officially established. The National Security Act of 1947, adopted following World War II and during the Cold War’s onset, created the modern U.S. military framework; the Act merged previously Cabinet-level Department of War and the Department of the Navy into the National Military Establishment (renamed the Department of Defense in 1949), headed by the Secretary of Defense; and created the Department of the Air Force and National Security Council.
The U.S. military is one of the largest militaries in terms of number of personnel. It draws its personnel from a large pool of paid volunteers; although conscription has been used in the past in various times of both war and peace, it has not been used since 1972. As of 2016, the United States spends about $580.3 billion annually to fund its military forces and Overseas Contingency Operations. Put together, the United States constitutes roughly 40 percent of the world’s military expenditures. For the period 2010–14, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) found that the United States was the world’s largest exporter of major arms, accounting for 31 per cent of global shares. The United States was also the world’s eighth largest importer of major weapons for the same period. The U.S. military has significant capabilities in both defense and power projection due to its large budget, resulting in advanced and powerful equipment, and its widespread deployment of force around the world, including about 800 military bases in foreign locations.
Main article: Military history of the United States
The history of the U.S. military dates to 1775, even before the Declaration of Independence marked the establishment of the United States. The Continental Army, Continental Navy, and Continental Marines were created in close succession by the Second Continental Congress in order to defend the new nation against the British Empire in the American Revolutionary War.
These forces demobilized in 1784 after the Treaty of Paris ended the War for Independence. The Congress of the Confederation created the United States Army on 3 June 1784, and the United States Congress created the United States Navy on 27 March 1794, and the United States Marine Corps on 11 July 1798. All three services trace their origins to the founding of the Continental Army (on 14 June 1775), the Continental Navy (on 13 October 1775) and the Continental Marines (on 10 November 1775), respectively. The 1787 adoption of the Constitution gave the Congress the power to “raise and support armies”, “provide and maintain a navy”, and to “make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces”, as well as the power to declare war. The United States President is the U.S. military’s commander-in-chief.
Rising tensions at various times with Britain and France and the ensuing Quasi-War and War of 1812 quickened the development of the U.S. Navy (established 13 October 1775) and the United States Marine Corps (established 10 November 1775). The U.S. Coast Guard dates its origin to the founding of the Revenue Cutter Service on 4 August 1790; that service merged with the United States Life-Saving Service in 1915 to establish the Coast Guard. The United States Air Force was established as an independent service on 18 September 1947; it traces its origin to the formation of the Aeronautical Division, U.S. Signal Corps in 1907 and was part of the Army before becoming an independent service.
The reserve branches formed a military strategic reserve during the Cold War, to be called into service in case of war. Time magazine’s Mark Thompson has suggested that with the War on Terror, the reserves deployed as a single force with the active branches and America no longer has a strategic reserve.
