Drinking Water Essay

… For the modern diet, water or water flavored with a bit of fresh lemon is preferable to fruit drinks, sports drinks or sodas, which also are usually high in sugars and calories. Water with lemon helps the body detoxify and remove waste products quicker, and since there is nothing to digest, is usable to the body immediately.

There are several easy ways one can increase their water consumption.

Carry a water bottle with you when you drive, walk or garden.

Water Privatization Essay

… One of the groups already contributing to the problem is bottled water companies that pollute the environment by storing water in plastic bottles, and take water from the supply in rapidly dwindling aquifers. This use of water reduces the amount of water resources available and reduces according to some people's belief in the government's ability to produce safe water resources. It promotes people's confidence in water privatization.

Water privatization has been attempted in the UK and other European regions as well, and has been met with failure. In the UK, privatization was met with bankruptcy and public outcry. A company named Yorkshire Water amassed "colossal debts" while struggling to make a profit; the company like many others proposed many solutions to their problems, but like…. [read more]

Water Pollution in China Thesis

… Water Pollution in China

Fresh water is the most important natural resource for human beings second only to oxygen. The average person requires approximately five gallons of water per day for drinking and bathing to maintain minimum acceptable standards of living with respect to normal metabolic and other biological functions and hygiene (Schulte, 2007).

However, more than one billion people out of six billion plus worldwide lack adequate access to clean drinking water and almost half of the entire global population lack access to enough water for essential sanitation.

The global shortage of clean, safe drinking water and basic sanitation is associated with a tremendously elevated incidence of human disease, mortality at every age group, infants in particular (Schulte, 2007).

Future estimates from acknowledged scientific…. [read more]

Water Shortage in the Middle East Term Paper

… Water Shortage in the Middle East

Water Shortage and Consequent Conflicts in the Middle East

Even before food, two elements are vital for the survival of an individual, and for life on a planet to exist: air and water. The characteristics of water which make it indispensable for life are endless, including both personal consumption and hygiene, as well as natural and chemical reactions in the nature and atmosphere, without which no form of life would be able to survive. During recent years, the natural resources of water have begun to shrink. Record high levels of consumption, increased elimination of greenhouse gases generating global warming, climacteric conditions and larger than ever global populations are all contributing to the reduction of the globe's water resources. Within…. [read more]

Against Bottled Water Essay

… Bottled Water

Safe? Environmentally Friendly? Well-Regulated?

The questions in the title above expose an issue about something of a craze in the United States in the past few years: bottled water. It seems that everybody carries around a bottle, and instead of jugs of tap water in meetings, as previously offered, these ever present friends are, well, ever present in such situations. While there are benefits to having water at all times, and especially in such a compact way as a bottle, and while it is very important to drink water and stay hydrated, many have started to question the actual process of bottling, as well as if this process if environmentally safe, and consumer safe. In other words, as ads continue to increasingly put…. [read more]

Water Pollution Term Paper

… The effect can also be seen in the pollution of the sea where fishing can be disrupted and even destroyed. An example of the way that pollution poisons the fish stock is the high concentration of mercury that has been found in many fish. This can have a serious effect on those who consume the fish.

Mercury is released into the air primarily from industrial sources, falls to the ground in rain or snow and is deposited into water bodies, where it is converted into another highly toxic form of mercury (called methylmercury). Methlymercury then builds up in the tissues of fish and other animals, and in high concentrations can pose serious health risks to people who frequently eat contaminated fish.

(Mercury in Fish and…. [read more]

Water Quality Issues Term Paper

… ¶ … Tragedy of Commons and Clean Water

Anyone who's ever visited a third world country such as India or Bangladesh where the water from the tap isn't potable and can lead to illnesses among other health concerns, knows how satisfying it can be to return to the United States, and take advantage of clean tap water. Tap water in the United States is reliably clean with added fluoride for strong teeth. However, it would be naive to think that America has always had clean water and has never suffered from environmental abuse. This is problematic as the environment belongs to everyone and a clean, healthy environment with clean water that remains consistently safeguarded is a fundamental right of all, vital for strong communities (Symons,….

Commodity Chain Analysis Paper: Water

Aquafina Bottled Water (Pepsico)

The increased popularity of bottled water over the last ten or so years has led to many questions about its position in the market, as well as regarding its health beliefs and its impact on the environment, both in packaging and in trapping a once free flowing commodity in a salable form. "Over the past several decades, the bottled water market in North America has experienced significant growth. Between 2002 and 2007 alone, the typical American's bottled water consumption rose by nearly 50% and has grown by more than 20-fold since 1977." (Quantus 2010, p. 1) This work will identify a single brand of bottled water, namely Aquafina, due both to its…. [read more]

Rachel Carson, She Asserts Essay

… Her essay reads as if that is her intended audience.

As an example of the rhetoric used by Carson to support her claim she states "Probably the bulk of such contaminants are the waterborne residues of the millions of pounds of agricultural chemicals that have been applied to farmlands for insect or rodent control and have been leached out of the ground by rains to become part of the universal seaward movement of water." Unless Rachel's essay is one of entire opinion (with no facts) the use of words such as 'probably' really should be frowned upon. Other statements presented by Rachel as facts are equally as ludicrous. Another example of such tomfoolery was Rachel's statement 'the pesticides are there, and as might be expected…. [read more]

Enemy of the People Character Essay

… Multiple and competing demands are the stuff of science and engineering. Funding, governmental initiatives, extant research, the marketplace, and political will all readily impact the course of scientific research and development. It is perhaps more typical that these competing demands would collide, than not. When they do collide, the concept of a perfect frontier -- as in investments where all the market information is available to all the people at the same time -- is moot. The market, in the instance when information is withheld, is neither fair nor reliable. In some instances, pertinent scientific information is not available to decision-makers by omission, sometimes the relevant information is available but is purposefully not disseminated to decision-makers, and sometimes the information is not yet known.

Nuclear Weaponry Nuclear Weapons Research Paper

… In that respect, the most popular front of war -- particularly during the Cold War -- was drastically altered and came to include a political chess game in which countries would feint at one another and prepare to engage in battle (the likes of which could conceivably destroy the planet) and actually do nothing but disarm and mount similar latent "offensives" by seeking other such targets.

The effects of nuclear weapons, as demonstrated by the political objectives of varying nation states and by the particular enemies and opponents who face one another, are still being felt today. One of the principle reasons that the United States attempted to overthrow Saddam Hussein and his progenies power in Iraq was because the nation was believed to be…. [read more]

Landon Carter's Character Through Erik Term Paper

… (McLeod 1) Kids go on to depend on others, have little self-worth and also question their abilities.

A lot of traits exhibited by Landon reflect an unhealthy stage two. Landon depends on his friends and acts according to them. That is to say he is doubtful of himself as a person and his personality. Regardless of the kind of people they are, Landon still hangs out with them. The friends that Landon has do not depict his true personality. There is a scene when Landon is with his friends in school and it's been just a day after him practicing lines with Jamie.

Jamie walks up to Landon: "Hey Carter, So I'll see you after school?"

Landon pauses.

Safety -- System Safety Failure Research Paper

… Safety -- System Safety Failure -- Hanford Nuclear Site

The Hanford Nuclear Site's history closely follows the United States' involvement in the Nuclear Age. Charged with rapidly inventing a plutonium bomb during World War II, the Manhattan Project chose an area in southern Washington State due to that area's unique combination of abundance and deficiency. After a massive and troublesome 2-year construction project, Hanford Nuclear Site was operational and ably served the United States during World War II and throughout the Cold War. Unfortunately, system safety protocols failed the Site and surrounding environs due to: the exigencies of war; ignorance and carelessness; secrecy; the lack of centralized planning; and politics. These failures led to massive contamination of the air, water and soil by disposal of…. [read more]

Geology Case Study

… S. have been declining significantly. Have the number of observed tornadoes gone down as well? Is there any relationship between these two variables? What does this tell us about cause-and-effect relationships? Over this time period, how has the impact of tornadic storms on U.S. society changed and why?

A 2012 U.S. Tornado Climatology Report states that there were an average of 1253 tornadoes in the United States between the years of 1991 and 2011. (NOAA, 2012) In fact, the United States "has the highest occurrence of tornados of any nation in the world." (Wild, Wild, Weather, nd) Tornadoes, while decreasing in their occurrence since 2004 have become stronger and have killed more individuals than ever before. For instance in 2010 more than 200 individuals were…. [read more]

Global Warming Essay

… Another human activity is deforestation by which the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is increased. When animal waste is left unprocessed, it releases methane gas. Human beings also contribute in increasing cattle production by livestock breeding and this as a result not only causes deforestation but also produces methane gas. Last but not the least, the use of fossil fuels also contributes to global warming ("Global Warming," 2009).

Statement 2: Global Warming is Not Caused by Human Actions.

The scientific facts mentioned underneath indicate that the human activities are responsible for the recent issue of global warming.

1. CO2 (a greenhouse gas) is responsible for warming the atmosphere.

2. The atmospheric CO2 concentrations have rose from about 280 parts per million (ppm) to over…. [read more]

Sociology -- Social Work Poverty Term Paper

… When a group of people has a high disease rate, absenteeism is high, productivity is low, and less wealth is produced. Separately from the misery, discomfort and death that results from disease, it is also a major factor in poverty in a society. Being well not only helps the persons who are healthy, it adds to the abolition of poverty in the community. The financial system is much healthier if the population is always fit; more so than if people get sick and have to be taken care of. "Health contribute to the eradication of poverty more in terms of access to safe and clean drinking water, separation of sanitation from the water supply, knowledge of hygiene and disease prevention" (Bartle, 2011).

Henry IV Essay

… This is indeed an ideal starting point for an eventual redemption.

Later on in the play, when Prince Hal gives his noted speech which explains that his previously poor character and actions were just another role in the play -- the audience doesn't have to believe him necessarily. Rather the audience has to determine if his subsequent actions will determine is this is in fact accurate or not. Thus, his behavior will determine if a reformation has taken place. And Prince Henry does promise that his behavior will in fact demonstrate this. Prince Henry compares his character to the sun, with the ability to break through foul clouds and mist (I.ii.29). Such an affirmation just appears to be arrogant, but he presses on, claiming: "So,…. [read more]

Performance Analysis and Intervention Research Paper

… This may also be contributing to the above performance issues. Therefore it is necessary to address them now instead of waiting to see if the above solutions actually work.

To improve morale, get outside the box on this predicament. It is financially impossible to retain all the perks currently available to the employees. To make the employees feel that they have a contributing voice in their own perks, take a vote to determine which perks are the most desired by the overall group. Once the most important perk has been identified, assure the employees that the perk that they deem the most important will not be eliminated. This process should achieve a higher level of morale because it makes the employee feel empowered with regard…. [read more]

Tragedy of the Commons Essay

… Philosophy -- the Tragedy of the Commons

Overview of the Tragedy of the Commons

In principle, Hardin explains that the "Tragedy of the Commons" means that one of the inevitable consequences of large societies is that contemporary generations do not have a natural incentive to refrain from behavior that is decidedly detrimental to subsequent generations (or to others now). Specifically, the problem, according to Hardin, is that people can be trusted only to do what is in their personal interests and to exercise self-imposed restraint on activities that are beneficial to them but detrimental to the welfare of others.

For example, if high-profile studies revealed that breathing in aerosol deodorant vapors cause cancer in users, many current users of deodorant sprays would change their habits…. [read more]

I make it a life philosophy to stay positive and optimistic. That's not my nature, but I try. Whenever something starts to annoy me, I either try to ignore it, or I take action, in order to address the respective problem. This approach generally works for me and I have a relatively balanced life. However, there are a few things which really drive me crazy and which I can neither solve, nor ignore. One of them is the noisy neighbor.

I live in my own apartment. I bought it three years ago and I still have to pay over two decades on the mortgage. I made tremendous efforts to buy and I invested in it…. [read more]

Briefly describe the history and evolution of Starbucks.

Seattle entrepreneurs Jerry Baldwin, Zev Siegl, Gordon Bowker founded Starbucks in 1971, locating their coffee importing business in Seattle's Pike Place market. The founders were content to grow the coffee importer to five stores in the metro Seattle area, and were gradually becoming known in the coffee industry, and as a result of these associations met Howard Schultz, who would eventually buy the chain and transform its business model. Mr. Schultz was passionate about introducing retailing concepts he had originally discovered during a trip to Milan, Italy and immediately after coming back from Italy, launched what would become the prototypical Starbucks stores, combining meetings places with good ambience for friends catching up with each….

Mary Kay's Lessons in Leadership Term Paper

… Mary Kay

Provide a written critique of the article and how it applies to corporate culture in firms

On the surface, it might seem that Mary Kay's corporate ethos belongs to another time and place in American business history, as the founder trumpets the value of putting "God first, family second, and career third." But the article "Mary Kay's Lessons in Leadership" astutely points out that contrary to the manufactured public image of its ultra-feminine founder, many members of the sales staff are professional women. Two-thirds have full-time jobs in addition to selling Mary Kay cosmetics, and several of the company's trusted sales staff work as lawyers. Furthermore, like many sales-driven companies, beneath its veneer of pink Cadillacs and kisses, the company has what management…. [read more]

Coca-Cola Macro-Economic Analysis Case Study

… "

For the structure that Coca-Cola has employed over the years, the cost-benefit analysis when talking about their water consumption and management policies has been balanced out by the corporation's wide and open investment in efforts to create more awareness as well as the overall international water stewardship that they constantly enjoy. The fact of the matter is that the rising population of the world, the decreasing resource, increased hazardous discharge and threat of water deficiency is leading to a very unstable environment in the future (Brennan, et al., 2008). Hence, it is important for corporations like the Coca-Cola Company with huge resource consumption to make sure that they participate in activities that help with the preservation of the raw materials and resources as well….

Pollution in the Environment Term Paper

… (pp: 1, 151)

Several researchers have termed the environment in which we live today as a 'risk society', and the reason for this is, according to them, the fact that we are today living in a world that is full of unseen and unknown risks like nuclear radiation and the harmful effects it may have on today's as well as tomorrow's generations, the harmful effects of soil and water and air pollution, and so on. (Mergen, 107)

As far as water pollution is concerned, since it is more often caused by man rather than of any natural causes, the risk is infinitely more to the environment. For example, the Mississippi river, the huge and vast water body in the United States of America, which at…. [read more]
