First of all, let’s talk about the environment. I’m sure you all know about greenhouse gases and global warming, so I won’t talk much about that, but you may not know that road vehicles produce 10% of all man-made greenhouse gas emissions. This does include vehicles other than cars like trucks, but Tesla just came out with an electric truck which is faster and can carry more weight than any petrol/diesel truck. Greenhouses gases carbon-dioxide and methane have hit their highest levels in the past 420,000 years, and the extent of arctic sea ice has declined about 10% in the last 30 years. This is all because of global warming, and if we start switching to electric cars, we could make a big difference and maybe, just maybe the effects of global warming will decrease.
The only difference comes in the fact that in electric vehicles, they have more of them which are used to power the engine. Electric cars are entirely charged by the electricity you provide, which means you don’t need to buy gas again. Driving cars that need gas can burn a hole in your pocket. With electric cars, this cost can be avoided as an average person spends $2000 to $4000 on gas each year. Though electricity isn’t free, an electric car is far cheaper to run.
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.
In the article Humans Pollution: Environment it states, “Population growth and distribution have always been linked to the availability of freshwater and the sustainability of renewable water resources. The demand for water has grown significantly over the last 50 years not only because of population growth, but also because of an increase in the uses of water for households, agriculture, and industrial production.” In the past 50 years there has been a growth with how much water has been used daily. This is causing more water sources to get more water drain. In Humans Pollution: Environment it also says, “A significant number of the world's population lack access to an adequate supply of safe water for household use.
Based on the data from the amount of carbon used in paper cups in 5 years, it is slightly less than the carbon stored in Shanghai American School tree field, which proves that paper cups do not contribute to the issue of global warming as much. Yet we still need to be aware of that paper cups are not the only factor Shanghai American School use. There are other factors of human activities that have an impact on global warming, such as electricity, transportation, paper, and even tissue. Out of all these factors, electricity and transportation have a higher percentage for damaging our environment. While by only counting the amount of carbon that is been used from paper cups, it is already so close to surpass the carbon that is been stored in trees.
Technology has only now begun to reach stage where the automotive companies are planning to launches for consumers Initial prices are likely to be the range of $70,000 but would come down significantly as the volumes increase within the next of couple of years. Recyclable thermoset plastics: A new kind of plastic to cut landfill waste. Thermoplastics and thermoset plastics are two types of plastic.
Electronic Cigarettes: A Risk and Regulatory Analysis Introduction Tobacco smoking is one of the largest preventable causes of chronic disease and premature death in the world today. Despite increased education and scientific research, smoking habits and nicotine addiction persist. It is estimated, for example, that today’s global smoking population stands at one billion, approximately half of whom will experience health problems or premature death as a result of their exposure. Tobacco smoking and disease cause around five million deaths each year, including 700 000 within the European Union and 480 000 within the USA (including deaths from second hand smoke) . It is even estimated that smoking will contribute to one billion tobacco-related
It is reacted with a low level uranium oxide to produce more fuel. Currently fabrication plants in Europe have produced over 5 tons of new fuel by recycling plutonium waste materials. The reused nuclear waste ends up producing high level nuclear waste. This method of recycling helps reduce the nuclear waste produced by about 30 percent. These methods are both economical and effective in helping reduce nuclear waste and it also adds in energy production thus creating an economical front for the country.
The alternative was landfills that would incur a disposal cost of over $26,000 and wastage of landfill space that can be put to better use. Recycling of computers and printer machines, wires and other miscellaneous devices amounted to around 12000 pounds. Recycled dry-cell batteries and waste lamps were to the order of 4000 pounds. These measures helped in saving 150 cubic yards of landfill space.  Existing Regulations for E-waste management – Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
For example, factories provide us with stuff we need on daily basis from household items to medicines and many more. There are thousands of factories around the world which uses renewable energy, such as solar power, wind power or hydro electric power, which produce less pollution compared to traditional technologies of the 20th century. The new hybrid vehicles which produces less Co2 compared to cars produced 10 years ago is another example of how we can rely on technology while minimizing its harm to our environment. In many developed nations, institutions are in place which monitors Co2 emission. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency makes sure that factories install machines which limit their carbon print, cars are required to follow their policy on carbon emission, while this agency has done its job quite efficiently, some industries may not be in full agreement with them.
From 2005-2014 the DPO ratio has increased 37%, meaning it takes the company longer periods of time to pay its invoices from trade creditors. Dick’s Sporting Goods Dick’s accounts payable and COGS have steadily increased over the period indicating that the firm has become bigger with the need to purchase more inventory to sell off. Their AP % change/overall sales % change shows major fluctuations between the years of 2006 and 2009. This again can most likely be attributable to the recession. With the lack of sales during this period there would be less of a need for inventory, which would decrease COGS and accounts payable needed to buy the inventory.
Gradually more money will be invested on marketing as we expand our business in the UK. 2.6. Pro forma annual profit and loss statement In the previous chapter, the manufacturing costs for the bottled water have been determined at £1, 10 per bottle. And after analyzing the marketing research, the prices for the bottled water have been set at; 500 mil still glass: £3 375 ml still PET: £2.5
“The outlook in this field is extraordinarily favorable, diagnostic medical sonographers and ultrasound technicians should experience job growth of 46 percent nationwide between 2012 and 2022 ranking the field among five fastest growing occupations in the country and resulting in 27,000 new jobs” (Boyle). The job for this career should grow in most regions but it is likely to vary geographically with most states having a fast growth than the nation’s average. The five most regions where the jobs of sonography is growing the fastest during 2012 and 2022 is Puerto Rico, Texas, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado. The averages for each region is, Puerto Rico 58. 7 percent, Texas 57.6 percent, Arizona 54.9 percent, Utah 54.1 percent, and lastly Colorado with 51.3 percent.
