Humans have the right to live. In order to live, we need water. To purposely prevent someone from acquiring it, in any way, is highly unethical, as you are derailing that persons plan to live. Corporations should continue to make bottled water, it takes better than regular water. But when they take the water resources of certain villages or even countries there is a deep social and justice issues that affects everyone in that community.
The establishment of these schools also means the “loss of funding for traditional public schools, leading to fiscal inefficiency” (US Connect). The pro side of this debate will argue that charter schools foster innovation and are worth the loss of funding for traditional schools in the long run, however if this is the case, then why have many charter schools across the nation turned into nothing more than money making opportunities for entrepreneurs with very little interest in educational innovation? Not only are these schools taking away from traditional public schools, but they also discourage students with disabilities by counseling them out instead of providing accommodations. This refusal to serve disabled students means traditional public schools are left with a higher-than-expected concentration of students requiring additional resources because they are mandated by
The term “Milagro” in the movie entitled “Milagro Beanfield War” is a Spanish word which means “miracle”. Miracle is such an interesting word which can convey different meaning to us. Some people do not believe in miracle as they feel that miracles are acts beyond the nature of laws, but some people do. Nevertheless, in this movie, miracle plays a vital role in helping the poverty-stricken Hispanic community in Mexico to fight against the aristocratic developer. The developer thought they’ll be able to develop the lands without much protest from the community due to its jurisdiction of the local water rights.
I enjoyed the topic of the Annotation 1 worksheet, because I personally disagreed with the stance of the author. The Article argues that disallowing welfare users to spend their food stamp money on sugary drinks would allow users to lead healthier lives, but I do not think that the situation is that black and white. According to the article, “They would still receive every penny of support they now get, meaning they would have as much, if not more, to spend on nutritious food” (Farley). I believe that health can be a social construct, and what might be healthy to one person might not be healthy to another, and banning sugary drinks, does not mean that welfare users will go further in the act and make healthier decisions about everything purchased.
in spite of this, it is not effective enough to solve the problem of childhood obesity. On the surface, the restructuring of the NSLP seemed like a great idea. After all, who is against serving healthier food? However, concerns exist regarding if changes can happen in childhood hunger in the U.S. due to these new regulations from the HHFKA. The possible consequences are schools are faced with higher expenses due to these requirements, in response some schools have opted out of the NSL, so they do not need to follow the new rules (Turner & Chaloupka, 2014).
I believe that even though we are wasting our tax money for the drug test is better than helping someone who is on drugs. Last of all, if someone who isn’t able to provide anything to their family those are the people who really deserve the help. Welfare should only be available for those who can’t work not only but also those who trying to get a stable job. So people shouldn 't be take advantage of the welfare help because there some people who actually need the help but don’t even qualify just because they have a paying job. People who receive welfare benefits need to be more grateful on what you spend our tax money
Refugees don’t choose to lead this life but instead are forced to. And as stated above, there is a silver lining to accepting refugees. The least anybody can do is to show them love and kindness and help them build better lives for themselves in contrast to turning a blind eye and pretending that everything will eventually go back to normal. As it appears to be, the situation does not seem likely to decrease in the foreseeable future, and this short-term thinking of various impacts it may have on the country may lead to bigger and longer-term problems for the local economy.
Petrochek was just used to solve water pollution problem and was not related to our business. Besides, our top management team also did not want to buy Petrochek patent. Therefore, we did not intend to buy it unless they offered a appealing price, for example, half of market price. Then we might buy it and sell at the market price afterwards to obtain an additional
Gaining public support and funding will be difficult as individuals will not welcome the change. However, as two major stakeholders: police and health professionals, have displayed their support for the change, communities will soon embrace the change (Wodak, 2015). Nightclub owners might experience a loss of revenue due to individuals not drinking as much which will force them to be against the change. Nevertheless, they will be able to save money in the decrease of property damage and decreasing the amount of security on the premises, which can make up for the loss of revenue. Thus, individuals will be more incline to support the change to the drinking culture as it will benefit them in more ways compared to the current
Imagine having to pay for water to shower, drink, wash your hands with etc. Bolivia was a country that was subjected to the privatization of water and they responded negatively. The citizens of Bolivia weren't avid about handing their fresh clean drinking water over to foreign corporations. “On January 10 the citizens of El Alto took to the streets en masse to demand that their water system, privatized in 1997 under World Bank pressure, be returned to public hands.” Three days later the president cancelled the water concession.
Growing up in Orange County, California, I would have never imagined that my Golden State was turning brown. I always think of California as being typified by lush greenery and beautiful beaches, yet in reality, it is facing one of the most severe droughts on record. It is so severe that the Governor Edmund Brown had recently declared a drought State of Emergency this January. In response, directed state officials have recently planned to take action to prepare for these “water shortages” by imposing restrictions on the amount of water used by California residents. Because the people who live in wealthy and affluent neighborhoods use about five times as much water per capita as the average Californian, those who reside in more affluent areas
Snitow and Kaufman’s study was on the water crisis in the United states and the impacts it is making. People don’t realize this, but the water crisis has become more and more of a problem in the United States. Snitow and Kauffman give a lot of valuable information on topics such as making water private. This privatization of water is allowing for companies and corporations to take control of water rather than it being a public resource, like it is supposed to be. In the text it says, “The conservative agenda of small government, deregulation, and privatization has given big business an opening to create a private water market to replace a public service.”
Linda Sue Park’s A Long Walk to Water describes a hot, sunny day in Southern Sudan, where an 11 year old girl named Nya was on her first two hour walk of the day, to fetch water for her family from a pond that was located two hours away from her home. She makes the walk every day, twice a day, carrying a giant plastic container. The journey takes her half a morning while the other one takes half a night. While she is one out of thousands who walk hours a day just to be able to find water for their families, hundreds of millions of people in the United States turn on a faucet, open a bottle and drink clean refreshing water in a matter of seconds.
There are currently at least 663 million people in the world who do not have access to safe drinking water (Deen). Water is a vital resource that everyone depends on in order to carry out activities and simply to survive. Without water, life on Earth would not exist because in order for life to grow and thrive, including humans, depend on water. Unfortunately with increasing population, altered and changing weather patterns and the pumping of groundwater are factors that have contributed to the issue of water depletion. These issues have caused conflict over water transportation, usage and the potential of water weaponry.
