The Need Hungry? Eat a snickers, you’re a diva when you’re hungry. This is a well-known advertisement quote for a snickers commercial. This commercial says that when people are hungry they aren’t themselves or are acting strangely. Think about those around the world who would kill to get some food or fresh water. They don’t have commercials about food and water. If I were the Secretary General of the United Nations in 2015 I would use the funding of 50 million dollars to help those in third world countries that do have the luxury or are in need of food and fresh drinking water. All around the world there are people who are dying of thirst and hunger. There is concern that there will be a future that contains very little water. …show more content…
Although this number, which is a not yet a refined estimate, leaves out those who suffer from vitamin and nutrition shortages and other forms of malnutrition (World Hunger). According to the FAO the world produces enough food to provide everyone with about 2,720 kilocalories per person daily. Then why does hunger exist? The whole number of food troubled people who are poorly nourished or are in need of critical nutrients is probably closer to three billion or half of humanity. The harshness of this situation is made obvious by the United Nations’ estimation over a year ago that almost 18 thousand children lose their life, every single day, as a direct or indirect consequence of poor nutrition. Africa is the number one country with this burning situation. The people of Africa are in dire need of food and nutrition. We, the people, need to stop turning away because it is not affecting us right now. It will affect all of our lives in the future. Parents need to think of their children’s children. I know that society would help resolve the problem if the tragedy happened closer to them. One out of eight human being in the world’s population go to bed starving every night (World
In this world thousands of people are in hunger. Some of the kids who go to school are part of this world hunger because they may only be getting their meals from school. Their lunch may be their last meal of the day. Also the parents who work in restaurants may not make enough money to feed their kids and pay bills. People are in need of food so they are not starving and dying because they cannot eat.

Introduction “Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink,” laments the sailor Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 1789. It means that despite being surrounded by water, we cannot benefit from it. It is because Earth’s water is 97% salty, and salty water isn't good for drinking or growing plants. But maybe if you take the salt out of the water you can able to drink and use it?

FAO reported that 2008 was the second largest crop in history. That same year, according to Action International, five million children died of hunger. It has been shown that the planet can produce food for a population more significant than the current one. However, 1.02 billion people suffer from famine (1 in 6.5), and 100 million more joined last years.
Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.
The life pursued by the average young person in America is fast paced and scheduled to the point of breaking. As time has progressed this time stretched life style has impacted the need for food that isn’t cooked at home or even at restaurants that cook with traditional methods. This coupled with the swelling number of households with either a single parent or two working parents has increased the reliance on the fast food industry and in turn increased the overweight and obesity rates in the country. In his article “Don’t Blame the Eater,” David Zinczenko addresses this topic and places the blame not on those partaking in these delectable dinners, but in the hands of the fast food industry and their lack of understandable labeling. Zinczenko’s argument is valid and strong due to his equal use of ethos, logos and pathos.
“In Aristotelian terms, the good leader must have ethos, pathos and logos. The ethos is his moral character, the source of his ability to persuade. The pathos is his ability to touch feelings to move people emotionally. The logos is his ability to give solid reasons for an action, to move people intellectually,” said Mortimer Adler. Many of the greatest artists use ethical, logical, and emotional appeals to prove their points.
Sources of fresh water are necessary for health care, agriculture and industry. Water supplies used to be relatively constant, but now in many places demand exceeds the sustainable supply, with dramatic consequences in the short and long term. Large cities dependent on significant supplies of water have experienced periods of shortage, and at critical moments these have not always been administered with sufficient oversight and impartiality. Water poverty especially affects Africa where large sectors of the population have no access to safe drinking water or experience droughts which impede agricultural production. Some countries have areas rich in water while others endure drastic
If everyone was aware about this issue, there would be more people willing to help and make a difference in those affected by famine. It is true that the Ethiopians themselves have to be aware of what causes famine, and there are some factors of famine that the Ethiopians themselves could possibly reduce, but it is not all that easy for them. This is where the government has to come in and take action. For example, one of the causes of famine is overpopulation. If Ethiopians were aware about that fact, they might start thinking about the number of kids that they will have in the future.
Since 1990, the world has reduced the number of people who live in extreme poverty by over half. But that still leaves 767 million people living on the edge of survival with less than $1.90 a day.2 The numbers of world hunger has gone down by a lot, but yet world hunger is still going on. Some of the poorest countries in the world have few to no jobs, and the few jobs that there are, are paid very little each day. Survival is key to these people and with the little money they have, it’s hard to do that. Across the globe, conflicts consistently disrupt farming and food production.
The right to food is a human right. It is universal, acknowledged at the national, regional and international level, and applies to every person and group of persons. Currently, however, some 852 million persons throughout the world are seriously – and permanently undernourished, 815 million of whom are in developing countries, 28 million in countries in transition and 9 million in developed (―industrialized‖) countries. Furthermore, every five seconds, a child under ten years of age dies of hunger or malnutrition1 – more than 5 million per year.
Even the number of hungry people in the world exceeds the total population of US and European Union. Extreme hunger and mal¬nutrition remain as blockade to development and creates a set up from which people cannot easily go out. Hunger and malnutrition mean less productive individuals, who are more susceptible to disease and often unable to earn much more and improve their livelihoods. There are nearly 800 million people in this world who suffer from hunger worldwide, the major¬ity
