Living in Libertyville, it is easy to forget that not everyone eats three filling meals a day, holds a well-paying job, and has access to clean water. However, for many people in other parts of the world, this is not their reality. Places like the United States, where a majority of society lives well above the poverty level, are not doing enough to help those in need, specifically people suffering from malnutrition. To put this into perspective, 59 billion dollars a year is spent globally on ice cream, compared to the 28 billion dollars it would take to provide global health care and other necessities for all (Singer, “Ten Reasons” ). Billions of dollars are spent on a sugary treat, when they could be spent on a greater cause, such as feeding
(Conversely, miscible liquids are soluble in each other.) The organic compounds would dissolve in extraction solvent and the inorganic impurities would remain dissolved in the water. The mixture will be place in separatory funnel enabling separation of one layer from the other—the lower, denser layer can be drained out of the bottom of the separatory funnel, leaving behind the upper layer.
INTRODUCTION Lack of clean water is affecting millions of people today.Almost 1 out of every 6 people alive are unable to adequately access water, and worse still, over double that number lack basic sanitation, for which water is a necessity. (Abebe, 2011)Almost half the population in some third world countries can’t access clean water and availability of drinking water is becoming a major socio-economic issue across the world, particularly in the developing world. Clean water i.e. water that is free from toxins and various chemicals is essential to human health. Rapid increase in population, industrialization, droughts and demands from variety of users are the major factors that led to clean drinking water shortage.
The lack of physical activity, and poor diet habits can lead to more problems and money that they do not have to fix the problem. If the person lives in a poor community the education about health is poor. 4. What are some reasons for disparities in access to health care? The lack of financial resources can be a big problem to access to health care.
The solution of liquid and sold is decanted through the filter paper in the funnel. The solid is trapped by the filter and the fluid is drawn through the Buchner funnel into the glass flask by the vacuum. While starting your scientific experiment always remember a vacuum trap and keep it clean so it does not get contaminated. The technique is faster than gravity filtration. Vacuum filtration generally involves the use of vacuum filter flask, water pump, filter trap and sintered glass crucible.
Not only does Haiti have poor infrastructure in the sense of roads, buildings and more but it effects their water which is potentially deadly. “The country’s 10 million people had drinking water from springs and rivers and wells and a broken-down municipal water system in the capital...But a great deal of the water was loaded with bacteria and parasites...chemicals and other pollutants.” (Joseph B. Treaster). This goes to show how Haiti doesn’t spend money on their own water system leading many vulnerable to diseases. Not only does Haiti not have the resources due to money issues for attempting to fix their infrastructures but they still want to be independent. “Haiti immediately needs $40 million to get its grid back to pre-quake status and pay its 2,500 workers...the payroll above is $15 million a month-as well as provide power to million of Haitians who can’t afford it.” (Associated Press).
The average expense allowance on medicine is approximately $4.65. Due to low economic disposition, there are not quality jobs available and income is hard to obtain. National organizations like, the Red Cross helps treat this disease and help with some medical advances. The citizens of Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas are effected by the availability of clean water. Port-au-Prince have been effected by water issues and has yet to formulate a solution to clean water.
Things such as taking showers every day and drinking whenever you want become a lot harder than what we are used to. You have to conserve the water and use it wisely. It makes a big difference not having water. It will also affect farming because you may not have enough water to keep the plants alive. When your body goes without food or water you will lack the energy to do anything.
About 60 percent of Haiti’s population lives on the street with less than one dollar a day. Only 50 percent of the people have access to a clean water source, meaning that they have to drink from rivers, lakes, and streams, no matter how filthy it is. Even if some have access to an improved water source, a total of 80 percent of the population does not have access to satisfactory sanitation. Those that are able to get to clean water are still in danger of disease and infection. Also, because of the lack of health care, diseases such as hepatitis, typhoid fever, and malaria run rampant.
Other facts about hunger around the world are as follows. 1. 13.1 percent of the world 's population is starving. Approximately 925 million people are malnourished every day, consuming less than 2,100 calories recommended per day 2. The world produces enough food to feed the 7 billion people living in the world, but the hungry also have no land to grow food or money to buy it.
Most Americans citizens who are not insured is poor, black and Hispanic. In spite of targeting to insure everyone in the United States, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) left remarkable gaps in coverage, and denied many people to access insurances under this law. The government keeps establishing these new programs for people who do not have health care, but most
One of the reasons that most colonist died was that they didn’t have enough food and water to survive. They had to dig wells to look for water. They had streams with fish but they only had an abundance of them in the Summer and Spring. They needed more food gatherers and hunters to have more success. Also Jamestown had gigantic drought while they were there and with not enough water, there aren’t going to be very many crops for the colonist to eat.
Along with that, Nigeria doesn 't have many resources or funds for vaccines due to their previous president, Olusegun Obasanjo who had $16 billion dollars vanish into thin air over the course of his 10 years in office. Nigeria has now placed laws and received help from organizations, such as UNICEF to receive vaccines for its residents. In India, many people aren 't vaccinated due to the little government support and funds. Disease spreads easily through the crowded, unsanitary streets as well. With that, many citizens don 't believe in vaccines, and there aren 't many places one can get a vaccine in India.
The chloroform and caffeine mixture was collected and into a conical flask labeled A. The remainder of the solution was discarded. This was repeated for beakers B and C. 9. Sodium sulphate was then added to each beaker to dry the liquid by getting rid of any remaining water from the solution. The sodium sulphate was then filtered and discarded.
