Have you ever wondered what our children, and grandchildren’s lives will be like? We Screwed Up; A Letter of Apology to my Granddaughter (Ward, 2012) is a letter written by Chip Ward to his four year old granddaughter and her possible unborn siblings. He speaks clearly about the devastation that past generations have caused to the planet we all call home, although he fails to provide any evidence concerning what he claims, as well as majorly lacks appreciation for the organizations already working towards a better tomorrow. Chip Ward begins his letter with an apology to his granddaughter and her siblings for using up all of the oil. He claims that, “We are all gas-hogs, plain and simple” (Ward, 2012), in regards to his generation and those
You an have one of two things, a welfare state with very restrictive immigration, or you can have a non-welfare state with complete freeflow of immigration. Realistically speaking, We do have a welfare state so.. we have to shut the border instead of incentivising millions more non english speaking, low education, poor, low skill people to cross the border. We have to start enforcing our visas because 40% of illegals have overstayed their visas. Then we figure out to do with the folks here. Whether that is a pathway to citizenship or to legalization that doesn 't become immediate until after the border is secure.
During the meeting of July 13 with international human rights organizations he said he was recognised “as an asylum seeker by the UN High Commission on Refugees – but the US”, he said, did not “recognize this.” He said he wanted international organizations to request the US and EU not to interfere with his asylum claim: “For decades the United States of America has been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, arranged and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon. Although I am convicted of nothing, it has unilaterally revoked my passport, leaving me a stateless person. Without any judicial order, the administration now seeks to stop me exercising a basic right.
GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES [TO WHAT EXTENT SHOULD COUNTRIES BE MORALLY OBLIGATED TO GIVE ASYLUM TO REFUGEES?] AMITH SARANYU D.S 10 IGCSE DECCAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL “ Turning back boats full of people seeking asylum in their hour of need is not fair.” - Councilor Linda Scott. RATIONALE I chose this topic because I read an article on the Internet stating that the refugee crisis worldwide has displaced 60 million people from their homes since the end of World War II pushing asylum to their limits. That article stated the threat countries are facing as they are fleeing from countries like Syria and Iraq to places like Central America and Africa to seek asylum. I want to research whether countries should be morally obligated to give asylum to refugees.
Three groups have already departed Papua New Guinea and Nauru, after a long and drawn out assessment in regards to the eligibility and vulnerability of said asylum seekers. One complication is the travel ban, reinstated by POTUS Donald Trump, which excludes several nationalities from entering the United States – especially Iranians and Somalians. In fact, Iranians actually make up the largest group of refugees from the two detention centres. Although this one-time resettlement agreement was made to help the asylum seekers detained on Manus Island and Nauru, Australia in exchange agreed to accept refugees from violence-plagued countries in Central America, who are currently being detained in US-run camps in Costa Rica. With the eventual 1,250 refugees supposed to be settled in the United States, some relief should be provided but that number does not encompass all those who lived in those detainment
In Priscilla Alvarez’s article “Trump Prepares to End DACA,” she informs the reader about the background of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Donald Trump’s impending decision to end the program. The belief of removing DACA is just cruel and like Mr. Obama said, “Self-defeating.” The struggle with having a fair and permanent solution for immigrants. When will immigrants get their fair rights and to finally live life freely without the fear of being deported. Dreamers don 't oppose threats and are productive people in this society. What made this act get stopped since the article was talking about undocumented immigrants going to college or serving in the military.
In order to progress and develop, to find new solutions for the same problems, to find better, more efficient ways of doing things, there comes a need for reform. This type of reform often occurs during a seismic shift in the socio-political fabric of a place, when we are faced with an unprecedented challenge that needs to be solved. The two world wars of the 20th century and the destruction they caused changed human perspective and amongst its many impacts, changed the way architecture and most importantly, social housing was designed. The Second World War, especially, produced mass destruction on a scale incomparable to that of the First. The result was vast expanses of wasteland, not only from bombardment but also from land combat.
But how many of them know who you are?” Easter’s resignation is seen, as she admits the fact of the matter and agrees to join Wednesday in his quest to fight the New Gods. This quote is also largely significant in showing the conflict between tradition and contemporaneity, where the origins of such festivals are forgotten and are celebrated without the knowledge of its true significance but rather has evolved to fit the conventional ideals of American contemporary society today. America is a land founded by immigrants who brought along their cultures and Gods with them. This is one of the big ideas that Gaiman presents in his novel to show the dichotomy between tradition dying out and modern ideals taking over. The entry of new Gods into America can be summarized through Wednesday’s narrative of his presence into the land.
Urbanization To what extent is urbanization a critical driver of social instability, failure of infrastructure, water crises & the spread of infectious diseases? Urbanization is basically the gradual increase in the proportion of people living in the urban areas or a specific area, and the ways in how the society adapts to it. Urbanization can be a good impact to a country and has the ability to improve its economy and the life of people but it also has the ability to destroy the country and the life of all the people that exist there. GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE: United States Of America : As I said urbanization can either improve a country’s state or totally destroy it. As for America urbanization had good benefits but it also did have effects that
Living a longer life likewise means a greater strain on the economy as well as the environment. According to the Social Security Administration, a steady increase in the older population over the age of 65 will put a severe strain on federal programs such as Medicare and Social Security. To put simply the system as we know it will crumble. Now imagine what this would do with the ecological, social, and economic environment. Brian Bienkowski wrote "As People Live Longer, Threats to Wildlife Increase “Increased life expectancy means that people live longer and affect the planet longer; each year is another year of carbon footprint, ecological Laurinaitis 3 footprint, use of natural resources, etc.
