In 2015, their purchasing power increased at an annual growth rate of 7,5% which was more than twice as fast as the growth for the overall American purchasing power. And these numbers are expected to grow as it is estimated that the purchasing power of Hispanics would represent nearly two trillion dollars by 2019. Hispanics are not only influencing the American economy with their purchasing power, today there are more than 4 million Hispanic owned businesses throughout the United States. According the Unites States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Hispanics entrepreneurs have been starting businesses at a pace 15 times the national average over the last decade and this despite the recession. Their businesses contributed over 600 billion dollars in revenue to the national economy in 2015.
Illegal immigration into the U.S. is vast in scale. More than 10 million undocumented immigrants live in the U.S., and the population is growing by the year. On one hand, the presence of countless immigrants is powerful evidence of the appeal of America. On the other hand, it is a hint of how dangerously open our borders are. Typical illegal immigrants come to America, mainly for improved jobs, all the while adds value to the U.S. economy.
Many people claim to be adept in multitasking, but in reality they are less efficient than those who isolate one act until its completion. Rather than smoothly and equally completing parallel task, the brain instead has to yank its focus from one task to the other, causing a lag in productivity. Although individuals do not notice this lapse, studies have shown the shift between task causes multitasking to take 40% more time than just single tasking (Plessow, 2). This inferior form of completing work is called serial tasking, and according to The National Academy of Science people who consider themselves great multitaskers actually are cognitively worse off than non multitaskers (Taylor, 1). For example, they remember less and take longer complete
However, there does not seem to be a sign of these numbers decreasing. In fact, according to “Distracted Driving Is Now an Epidemic in the U.S.”, “U.S. fatalities from traffic accidents rose 7.2% last year to 35,092—the largest increase in 50 years—and distracted driving played a role in 10% of those deaths...fatalities from “distraction-affected” crashes increased 8.8% to 3,477 from 3,197…”(Distracted Driving Is Now an Epidemic in the U.S.). Distracted driving has such a big impact in our life because it has such a big impact on the ability to drive. “Texting & Driving” states, “driving with a
Without well-paying jobs, they cannot afford a proper life to live. They cannot afford the essential needs of life like food or clean water, or even a house to live in. Many resort to stealing to keep themselves alive and higher authorities wonder why this happens every so often. A good example of poverty comes from the quote from Richard Delgado 's book Critical Race Theory (Third Edition): An Introduction, "They pay more for many products and services, including cars. People of color lead to shorter lives, receive worse medical care, complete fewer years of school, and occupy more menial jobs than do whites".
With an 18-year-old behind the wheel, accidents are more likely to occur; in addition, with so much new technology in today 's society, there are more distractions on the road than ever before. About twenty to twenty-five million people are injured or disabled each year. This is one of the main reasons why the age of legal drivers should be increased, to save lives and not break hearts. Getting a
When constantly pushing the brain too hard, it causes fatigue and therefore will cause less productiveness. After reviewing a group of people, Bradberry reports that 90% of high multitaskers had a less density in the anterior
Many assume that the receivers are unemployed, trying to take advantage of the government, and are lazy. The truth is that food insecurity leads to high levels of stress and reduced well-being due to the lack of nutritional intake. In 2013 researchers concluded that SNAP participants are between 14.9 and 36.6 percentage points less likely to be food insecure than nonparticipants (Gunderson 97). Given SNAP’s pronounced effect on reducing food insecurity, it’s likely that, without the increase in SNAP participation, food insecurity rates would have risen even more during and after the Great Recession. The majority of people using food assistance programs are in desperate need for nutrients and are trying their best to provide for their
By opening and introducing economic reforms, China’s urbanization process grew at a fast pace. Five years ago, so to speak in 2011, more people lived in urban than in rural areas in China. However, China’s urbanization phenomenon is not comparable to other regions in the world and has to be examined through a more dynamic and multi-level analysis for every region. China is not a completely urbanized country and each city shows own patterns of development. Continuous GDP rise of around ten percent per annum transformed China into an economic giant in the last two decades.
Although I can agree with the fact that cheap flights are slowly increasing, we still need to do much more when it comes to ticket expenses. Additionally, the first commercial airline flight to the present we have spent trillions of dollars in just fuel expenses. Airbus research suggests that every flight in the world could, on average, be around 13 minutes shorter, which would save millions of tonnes of excess fuel annually. By changing the way airplanes use fuel with a better technology and newer aircrafts, airlines might have a much higher profit, making flight tickets cheaper in the
