But take a look at these statistics. 50% to 75% of people who have been convicted of drunk driving still drive with an expired license. (Johnston) When we think about drunk driving, we think about teens. Teens are not the only ones who drink and drive but they are mostly the ones who make the wrong choices when it comes to drinking. One reason why teens drink and drive is because of peer pressure.
Speeding is a thing many people do, but it is not always with wrong intentions if someone does it. People can speed for a variety of reasons other than just to get to work faster or to have a street race. If a woman is pregnant, and the couple had happened to be in a situation where they could not call an ambulance when labor had started, they would generally speed their way to the nearest hospital, but if they had been stopped for a speeding ticket, that would cause some horrible outcomes. The author also says that laws such as “noise pollution” are frequently ignored. The problem with this one is self-centered teenagers that only care about having a good time and do not care for common decency, however, these problems are tackled as well.
This case proves that the beverage industry is trying to hide the connection between sugar-sweetened drinks and health issues. Although the warning label will hurt the beverage industry, it could save many lives and people should work to make the label widespread. Obesity, as well as other health issues, is a widespread problem throughout America. Beverage Industries are paying researchers to change scientific conclusions about any potential health problems that could occur from drinking beverages with sugar regularly. The majority of the population is aware that sweetened beverages have negative health effects.
There has been a time where corruption and manipulating one another wasn’t a fun hobby to do. However, as time has passed we have seen that the power of memes has exploited a lot of people into such a besmirched way. In Susan Blackmore’s essay “Strange Creature”, memes are parasites that jump from host to host spreading ideas. In Naomi Klein’s essay “Fences of Enclosure, Windows of Possibility”, corporates privatized public resources as private profit making it difficult for the less fortunate. The spreading of memes has limited our society to have fences and restrictions, making us believe if we do not follow what has been copied into our minds then there will be repercussions that we will have to deal with.
actually affects our brains and the way we use them. Many people would argue that technology has more cons than pros, however it’s quite the opposite. We use technology in our everyday lives and it helps us to gain more knowledge than we’ve ever been able to before. The technology we have today is one of the greatest advantages we could have. Andrea Lunsford, who wrote “Our Semi-Literate Youth?
This is how greatly dependent we are on technology. We have forgotten about the ways people went about finding information before computers. We have forgotten how business was conducted before conference calling and emails. Now, technology has taken over our lives and it clearly affects the creativity and communication between us. First of foremost, creativity plays a very important role in the improvement of our society and of our living standard.
The Deceiving Dream The American Dream is a highly controversial topic as many think of it as a hoax or an unrealistic fantasy. The Dream itself refers to the fact that “every American citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative" (Google Dictionary). One may think that with hard work, determination and perseverance, anything is possible, but in a country like America where you need money in order to make money, this idea seems unrealistic. Things like university and college costs for the desired course makes this Dream seem out of reach as well. The Great Gatsby was written by F Scott.
humans are extremely complicated beings, ones own idea of happiness could conflict or hurt other people. no matter how much effort and time we spend contemplating how to save the world, some people can not perform a utilitarian calculation for every decision in their life. ' 'People too easily talk themselves into doing foolish things for the sake of good results ' ' (Gensler, 119). a collective rational set of guidelines set by maybe a government will rule society into a better place , if everyone really knew what needed to be done they would be more understanding of the pleasure and pain impact on their neighbor and more willing to follow the rules for others sake even at the expense of there own happiness. when I think about a rule utilitarian society in modern times, think about a woman in Saudi Arabia and the rules based on religious law and reason.
Today we have a different workforce than what it used to be earlier. To keep up with the workforce today you must make friends with technology as the traditional style of work is not present anymore. You can see this change all over the world. Different companies are using different techniques to make their work smarter but all is attached with technology and we all know that Plantronics is one of the best in technology. The products and headphones are so amazing that many people assume it as the biggest breakthrough industry in making
The obstruction of connecting two regions has drastically decreased due to the fact that we now have mobile phones, Internet, and social media to make life easier. Businesses and organisations are relying on it and are gaining benefits from it. Communication Technology impacts on public and private life The modern methods of communication play a significant role in both our private and public life, commonly positive but they can also have negative effects. Through social networking sites, we can find people sharing the same interests as us, hence, making new friends or even finding a suitable
