Success can come from many different variables, opportunities, and advantages. In Malcolm Gladwell’s novel, Outliers, Gladwell had popularized the theory that ten thousand hours of practice will eventually lead to success. Being the only factor, 10,000 hours of practice will not lead to success. In order to be elite and successful, you need other significant contributors in the equation. In Outliers, Malcolm says that if you practice at least 10,000 hours you will be successful.
Cole argues that immigration stimulates the economy by creating new jobs and contributing billions in revenue each year. He also argues that immigrants create more in taxes paid than the government funded services they partake in. Cole argues that illegal immigrants are not allowed to receive most benefit programs anyway. Chiswick disagrees and argues that immigration is hurting the economy. He states by having so many of them taking up the low-skilled working jobs in America they are actually creating an increase in wage inequality.
In order to make a profit off of a product a company must make more than they are spending. So when it comes to spending on wages companies cannot be paying them more than their income. If companies were forced to raise the minimum wage many of them would find themselves laying off workers, especially those of the lower skilled employees. As much as a 3% reduction of low skilled workers can be projected with an increase of 10% in the minimum wage (Negative Effects). An American Apparel store in Los Angeles had to lay off 500 workers because of the recent city increase to $15 an hour (Sherk).
100 billion dollars per year is made from drugs and 40 billion and made in the U.S. Without stronger border security the U.S is going to be the main trading grounds for drugs. Diseases are also an issue with incoming refugees and are troubling to the U.S citizens that do not have strong immune systems. I think that the U.S needs to increase their border security because our border security is already at some difficulty to come into the U.S and nothing but bad things have immigrants brought into the U.S. As explained before Drugs, Diseases, and the safety from even crossing the border is not safe. Imagine the little kids found dead just because their family wanted to come into the U.S. Death is not worth it in my perspective and I think they should just come the right way and do the process to reach the requirements to come into the
Also from 1990 to 2013, America's crime rate had fallen 48%, even though the number of illegal immigrants increased from 3.5 million to 11.2 million. Americans have intensely agreed that illegal immigrants are embezzling them out of jobs, but is this true? Illegal immigrants might be able to be stopped from “robbing” jobs by a wall being built. Immigrants add to the calls of many things, making more opportunities for
Is technology changing our brains for the better or for the worse? The human brain is a biological masterpiece and is the most advanced organ on the face of the planet. In Richard Restak’s essay “Attention Deficit: The Brain Syndrome of Our Era,” he speaks about how the advancements in technology in this modern era have affected the brain’s habits and functions. Multitasking is requiring the brain to change how it functions, its organizations, and efficiency throughout day-to-day tasks and is also enabling people to do things otherwise not possible. Within the past two decades, the amount of time we spend on using technology has increased by a large amount.
Why Population Control is Needed While it is not a fact that bigger families are happier, it is a fact that the Earth is running out of space. With an estimated 7.3 billion people living on this planet as of now and 2 billion more people are estimated to join the current population by 2050, the world does not have the space nor the resources to keep these many people happy. Whether people like it or not, something has to be done about the growing human population. If the human population continues to grow without anything to slow the growth, humans will die out along with the Earth. Because humanity will run out of resources, there will be economic issues, and there will be serious contamination to the environment.
This leads to other arguments about what should the United States do to contain the spreading of immigration to the United States. There are many different opinions that quotas should be raised in order to lower the amount of “illegal aliens” that come to the U.S. While there are specific groups of workers that have many things to gain or lose illegal immigration is the main cause for economic effects that help the economy. The United States goals now are to reduce the amount of immigration that is happening in the United States now a day but there are many laws that say that the U.S. needs to help immigrants accomplish the goals that they came to the U.S.
Namely, the concern is that jobs will be taken from US citizens and given to non-citizen immigrants. Resulting from this shift would be lower tax revenues, decreased consumer spending, lower wages for US citizens, and a multitude of other ripple effects. Though incorrect, when taken at face value this argument appears to hold water. Traditionally, the assumption is that immigrants are coming to the US from underdeveloped or third-world countries in the aims of improving their current living situation. Therefore, these immigrants who were making pennies on the dollar compared to their US counterparts would be willing to work for wages that are higher than in their home country but lower than what US citizens are paid.
So a growing human population must pose some kind of a threat to the well-being of planet Earth, mustn 't it?Currently, we as a population use up most of the resources how we please, waste, and even pollute. Our plan is to feed and to breed. The fertility rate has all of a sudden gone up incredibly over the past decade. Yes, we are getting overpopulated but there is no way we can control that.We simply cannot just kill every other baby that is born. Imagine every year how many graduates there are in different universities, college school from different countries.
