What most people do not know is that this amount of people is over 40,000. In 1852, during the gold rush, California had a population of just about 92,000. 40,000 of those people had just arrived due to the California Gold Rush. California’s population increased by just about 43.5%. In today’s perspective, California has 39.25 million people, so they would then have an additional 16.95 million added onto it.
In April 2012, Ban the Box campaign successfully advocated with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or EEOC to clarify and strengthen its policies by updating the Enforcement Guidance on Consideration of Arrest or Conviction Records in Employment Decisions. During that same year, EEOC started immediately going after employers who had a ban on hiring people with criminal backgrounds. One employer that was hit with this policy was Pepsi Cola Company. Pepsi was order to pay over three million dollars because the EEOC ruled that Pepsi discriminated against race of African American applicants based off their background check. Pepsi was also ordered to provide job offers and training to their applicants (bantheboxcampaign.org).
The amount of plastic products that ended up in the ocean as of 2015 are quite high. How high you may ask yourself? No not 1 million but 9 million tons of plastic waste laid in the ocean as of 2015. Who could be responsible for most of this plastic in the ocean? Surprisingly its china, they are responsible for 2.4 million tons per year. That 's 30 percent of the global total.
The red wine frenzy only began in the 1990s, so the studies can't tell us about long-term outcomes of its effects on heart disease, inflammation and cancer. At best, we can speculate and make inferences. So, does red wine really rule? Various studies have shown that moderate amounts of all types of alcohol benefit our hearts. But red wine gets all the media.
Plastics in our oceans is the most dangerous form of pollution in the 21st century In Los Angeles alone, 10 metric tons of plastic fragments—like shopping bags, straws and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day. Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century. 50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times.We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce.The average American throws away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year.Plastic accounts for around 10 percent of the total waste we generate.The production of plastic uses around eight percent of the world's oil

Ecstasy use has grown at an alarming rate but still, there are many people who believe it can be beneficial. Due to the unpredictable rate at which ecstasy has grown at the government had no control over it, so they radically overstated the health risks in order to stop young people from turning their brain into Swiss cheese. The information provided by the government about ecstasy was totally wrong and it may have caused a bigger problem. The facts about ecstasy use are shocking according to the DEA 100s of millions of ecstasy pills are taken every year and nearly 2 million new users are recruited every year.
While stories like these have undoubtedly happened, they come nowhere near to capturing the true horror of organ trafficking. The international trade in human organs is on the increase fuelled by growing demand as well as unscrupulous traffickers. Countries such as Brazil, India, and Moldova, well-known sources of donors have all banned buying and selling of human organs. But this has come at the risk of driving the underground trade. The world health organization has revealed that the illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually or more than an hour.
From a business perspective, ten percent is on the extreme lower end of the spectrum considering products such as medications have a retail markup of over one thousand percent. Medicine to an ill patient is just as crucial as a generator or clean drinking water may be to a natural disaster victim, yet the first type of price escalation is illegal while the other is applauded as good
According to the data in 2013, five top countries that have the largest hydropower capacity, which are China, Brazil, United States, Canada, and Russia, occupied over half of hydropower global capacity (Ren21). China takes 26%, Brazil takes 8.6%, United States takes 7.8%, Canada takes 7.6%, Russia 4.7%, and ‘rest of country’ takes 45.4% of the global hydropower capacity. As annual global capacity reaches 1000GW, China reaches 260GW by itself, while Brazil generates 86GW. Hydropower electricity generated from China is greater than 3times of Brazil’s. To compare hydropower electricity generated in 2012 to 2013, all top 5 counties showed the acceleration (Ren21).
to sell it all there making a hefty profit. Most of the illegal drugs in the U.S. comes from Mexico. Although Mexico is only 3rd on the list for biggest producer of illegal drugs it still supplies the U.S. with over 90% of its illegal drugs. This is why a war on drugs is currently taking place in Mexico and had been for 12 years, but hardly any progress is being made by the authorities. Drug lords such as Pablo Escobar and Joaquin Guzmán Loera, a.k.a.
Nationally, 1 in 10 people addicted to drugs or alcohol do not receive treatment, according to a report from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse. While Obamacare does include substance abuse as part of the ten essential health benefits, not every plan covers this service to the same extent and plans can offer different cost sharing on each. In the long run, ultimately leaving drug abuse up to the war on drugs not only criminalizes drug users but it does not support rehabilitation: especially inside the prisons themselves. In addition, drug prohibition has caused more violence in countries all over the world. Mexico, as stated above, has directly been impacted.
Bottled water is very common to use, but yet not the best choice. In the article, “The Wrong Way to Think about California Water” by Michael Hiltzik, he explains why to avoid bottled water. I think it would be difficult to avoid bottled water because he said that the entire nation consumes more than 10 billion gallons of bottled water a year. Then an expert, included in the article, said that bottle water is incredibly expensive. On the other hand, I think if you use tap water then you’ll have to pay a water bill which is quite expensive too.
Startling Statistical Information About Drug Abuse in Fresno County, California While Trust for America 's Health reported the state of California has the 15th lowest fatality rate (10.6 out of every 100,000 people) from drug overdose, the number is quite misleading considering the vast population of the state. The reality is drug abuse was the number one cause of accidental death in the state (see graphs provided by Visually). Furthermore, it was estimated that 85% of a vast population of addicts will never get the treatment they need. While representing a substantial part of the state 's population, it would be safe to assume Fresno County, CA residents need drug and alcohol rehab resources. Finding the Right Drug and Alcohol Rehab
In one study, overweight people expended a day by day supplement of sucrose-sweetened or misleadingly sweetened beverages or nourishments for a 10 week period. A large portion of the supplement was as sodas. People in the sucrose gathering increased 1.6 kg, and people in the fake sweetener gathering lost 1.0 kg. A two week study had members supplement their eating regimen with sugar-sweetened soda pops, misleadingly sweetened sodas, or neither.Although the members put on the most weight when devouring the sugar-sweetened beverages, a percentage of the distinctions were questionable: the contrasts between men who expended sugar-sweetened beverages or no beverages was not measurably
Overwhelming the results of seventy-seventy percent of the American public had disagreed with lowering the drinking age from twenty-one years old to a younger age. Furthermore, lowering the MLDA (Minimum Legal Drinking Age) to twenty-one would be irresponsible because medically drinking under twenty-one could interfere with early development with the brain and produce chronic problems in the future, such as greater vulnerability to addiction, reduce decision-making ability, memory loss, depression, violence, and even suicide.
