|The Times||TITANIC AND THE LUSITANIA DISASTERS REVEAL DIFFERENCE IN SURVIVAL INSTINCTS
Almost 100 years after the Titanic and the Lusitania sank in the North Atlantic, the contrasting fates of their passengers have helped to explain how altruism can take over from the selfish instinct to save oneself. A scientific comparison of the two maritime disasters, which together claimed more than 2,700 lives just three years apart, has suggested that self-preservation can be trumped by social pressure to stand back while others are rescued, but only when people have sufficient time to think. ...

In 1982, he became the sole owner of the wreck 300 feet beneath the surface of the Atlantic ocean, about 12 miles south of County Cork in Irish territorial waters. ...

|NEWYORK 1909 (FRONT)
Hotel Knickerbocker. New York City, 1909. An Astor family Hotel, the Knickerbocker, designed by Trowbridge and Livingston, opened in 1906. It stood at the corner of Broadway and 42nd Street, and its theater district location made it popular with people in the entertainment industry; Enrico Caruso maintained a suite at the Knickerbocker, as did Lusitania victim Charles Frohman. In 1921, the Knickerbocker was converted to business use by Vincent Astor, son of its original owner. For 19 years, Newsweek magazine was headquartered in the former Knickerbocker. The old hotel outlived its other rivals on Times Square~ the Hotel Astor which was demolshed in 1968, and the Claridge which was removed in 1972. It came full circle when in the 1980s, under the stewardship of Leona Helmsley, it was restored and partially converted back to luxury apartments....
