Band Together

...Band together to stop Coal powered plants Band together to stop Coal powered plants Coal is a major industry in America and the mining of coal is one of the major employment opportunities for people living in certain areas of the United States. Although coal plants provide income for many people there are unfortunate set backs to coal plants. Unfortunately, some of these set backs include, black lungs and medical mishaps. Coal has been the main energy source to our communities for as long as we can remember. Coal power plants release toxins in the air that have been claimed to give many people asthma. The toxins are also polluting city’s water supplies as well, which is a leading cause of cancer. According to many statistics coal is the reason that there are many deaths from cancer in certain towns in the United States. Unlike many other states California does not have coal power plants. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power now gets 40 percent of its electricity from coal plants outside of California. Together the small businesses in Los Angeles are gathering together to support a coal free city by the year 2020. As stated above, Los Angeles is trying to go green by 2020. As long as we band together and fight against the use of these filthy coal plants we will be one step closer to helping our own community as well as others in the United States. Even though Los Angeles does not have these power plants we still contribute to the unfortunate conditions the......

... opportunity of high quality education should be open to all and by participating in organizations such as those just mentioned where we share the education we get from our school, we create a window for others. I believe that offering our service to people is the way to address this struggle. By making a moral decision and choice, we create a culture that will help others to move and do it themselves. Struggles are only there because we allow them to be there. If we truly want a just society that meets its common good, we have to work for it. Not just by ourselves but with each other, together. I believe struggles aren’t there because they hold us back. Struggles are there because we hold our own selves back. Struggles are also there to test our faith and challenge us as to how far we can care for ourselves and others. To address the struggles I face with my society, I have to get out of my own way and be truly concerned and involved with the society towards working to build the common good....

... need your help to prevent any health issues related to such problem and any that may occur in the future. I plan to hold a local meeting this Tuesday at the local library to discuss any possible solutions pertaining to this issue. Although, we have a petition already with a united community, if we come together as a whole we could fight and argue the issues at hand until, the local gas company decides to investigate the practices of their work and bring about a solution that would prevent problems such as this one in the future. This petition along with a united community and people who generally care about others health coming together in demand of an investigation by the gas company; will hopefully push them to determine the root of the problem and by all means rectify the situation. I ask that all who can attend this meeting and is willing to stand behind us in this fight for justice and good health, please bring any relatable information, ideas, suggestive tips and anything else that could be beneficial and of great value to get the gas company moving in a direction of revising their practices and correcting this situation. As we all stand as a whole we could win justice, possibly provide aid to the families in need, and overall improve the local gas company work ethics. Do not forget to mark your calendars for our big meeting on Tuesday and I look forward to meeting you all and hearing the other voices speak out on this matter. References: (2001-2011). Bhopal......

... running under our houses which have been slowly leaking gas over the years and it started to create the symptoms of illness in people. In order for the people of this community to start feeling better about our health and safety something needs to be done by the gas company to resolve this issue. The community needs a way to clean up the pollution so that no one else gets sick. My idea is to have the gas company come out see where the problems are occurring and find a way to fix it without further creating a problem for the people that are living in these houses. If this is the resolution that the community collectively decides to go with there are a few things that need to be covered such as who and how will the community get a hold of the gas company. The only problem that I see using this solution would be the efficiency of it since we are relying on the gas company and getting a hold of them as well as convincing them to do the work may result in delays. Additionally we need to cover problems that may arise from fixing the problem, such as the possibility of people having to leave their homes until the work is completed. There needs to be decisions made about where the people will go and who will pay for the people to stay somewhere else. I propose that we set up a community meeting in which to discuss the current problems and the resolution for the problems. After coming up with a solution we can meet with the gas company to discuss fixing the problem at hand....

...Together We Stand Outline HUM/111 July 1, 2012 Together We Stand Outline I. Introduction To whom it may concern, I am writing this to inform all residents living in or around Bayside that we have had many of our residents become ill with similar extensive symptoms. We have been doing thorough research to get down to the bottom of the problem, and have narrowed the illness down to a possible improper chemical disposal at a nearby company. We are doing everything in our legal power to get this unfortunate matter taken care of. II. Diagnosis The first thing I would do would be to contact those residents whom I know have been contracted with the illness, and ask them questions related to, where were they at the on-set of the illness? How long have they had said symptoms? Did anyone who may have been with them get sick as well? Were they exposed to anything unusual that may have gotten them sick? I would ask many questions that could help me get to the cause of the problem. a. Symptoms Here I would keep a book and log every symptom from every person I interviewed. This would allow me to find a possible pattern in related symptoms. I would also document ages and genders of residents who got the illness, so to see if there is a difference in children versus adult symptoms. b. Medications/Vaccines After evaluating ill residents’ symptoms, I would then ask them questions about what they have done to fight the illness. What medications have they tried...

...I won’t leave you, don’t worry. We’re friends right? We’ve got to stick together. She could still hear his voice and see the reassuring grin that his face bared when he told her that. A lone tear escaped her eyes as she looked at the tombstone before her, trying to stay strong. He hated it when she cried, he said. Not that it mattered if she cried or not, the heavy downpour of the sky did the job for her, the sky mourned with her. It must‘ve known… known that it wasn’t his time to die yet, that he should be alive, here with her. Alexander James E. Devin She had read the words engraved on the newly polished stone several times already and she still couldn’t believe it. He was gone. Her best friend was gone just like that. “You said you wouldn’t leave me!” She shouted suddenly out of frustration, the sound of the rain muffling her yell. Lea finally broke down into a sobbing wreck and knelt down on the ground, crying. “Alex… Alex, you git…!” She bawled, pressing her palms to her eyes in a futile attempt to stop her tears. Despite cursing a dead person, Lea is mostly angry at herself. Actually, she is angry at herself. She was so selfish, so goddamn selfish that just thinking about it was absolutely revolting. For the past month she had been ranting and venting so openly to Alex about her life problems. About how she finds the idea of taking away her life so appealing every day and he’ll be there to comfort her. Always. Without fail. They were always...

United We Stand; Divided We Fall Why Appropriate U.S. Intervention in Foreign Policy Is a Necessity for Global Peace

...United We Stand; Divided We Fall Why Appropriate U.S. Intervention in Foreign Policy is a Necessity for Global Peace In recent times it has become clear that trust of the United States’ ability to foster and produce peace is at an all-time low. In fact, it has recently been reported by The New York Post that a Gallup poll which analyzed data collected from 66,000 people polled in 65 countries that the U.S. is considered to be more threatening to peace efforts than Pakistan, Iran, and China combined, “Of the 66,000 people polled, just under a quarter named Uncle Sam as the greatest threat to world peace,” (New York Post, 2014). While this data sheds a frightening light upon the global opinion of the U.S.’s ability to act as successful peacekeepers, and due to many of the blunders experienced during Bush’s presidency, it is understandable as to why faith in the U.S. has diminished. However, both recent and historical data points towards the contrary, and instead has shown the importance of U.S. intervention in maintaining peace and showing the world that violations of human rights will not be tolerated. Therefore appropriate U.S. intervention within certain foreign policies is a necessity for global peace. Due to the U.S. maintaining one of the world’s largest militia in non-war times it is imperative that the United States’ military be involved in global efforts to foster and maintain peace when necessary. Many countries do not have the capability to defend...

Where We Stand with Isis

...Where We Stand With ISIS This past weeks newspaper clipping informs us that defense chiefs from 22 nations met at an air base in Washington, D.C. on the matter of how ISIS is going to be a long term campaign, how every individual state will be able to cooperate, and what they can do to continue on delivering the humanitarian assistance of all the populations that have been affected. This article is a perfect example on foreign policy and how president Obama is acting on the actions of ISIS and what he has done to try and stop them. Just like we discussed in class, foreign policy is the process of decision-making and at this very moment Obama is starting to evaluate different options on decision-making. President Obama is in the starting point of the decision-making process, which is the rational model. The rational model consists of 4 main objectives: set goals, evaluate their importance, calculate the costs and benefits, and choose which action has the highest benefits and lowest cost. President Obama exemplifies this process by meeting with 22 defense chiefs on the matters of ISIS and also a senior military official stated, “"This meeting is to share our vision, discuss coordination and our common understanding of the way ahead." Again, the U.S. led coalition is still in the works of implementing a more thorough action on ISIS. The United States foreign policy towards ISIS is an example of relative power; the perceived amount of power one person or...

...Jeremy Lekpeyee Public Speaking DeVry University 1. What does your report seem to suggest about your level of communication apprehension? When I got done with the assessment I received a score of 55 which indicated I am an average CA. 2. What effect do common causes of communication apprehension noted in the reading (e.g., heredity, learned apprehension, skill deficit, etc.) have on this? Communication apprehension can manifest itself in many ways and few of the effect are Shortness of breath, Sweaty palms, Butterflies in the stomach, Shaky hands or legs, forgetting what to say, Breaking out in a rash or blotches, and Using filler words (like, um, or you know). I have a habit of using filler words, break out in blotches and forget what to say. I feel short of breath and feel shaky it’s like having a huge weight crushing me. It is truly a terrible feeling to have while trying to make a speech. After reading chapter two thoroughly, I believe learned apprehension has the most approach on this assessment. Unlike the rest, learned apprehension gave three causes on why a public speaker may feel anxious during an event. All three of those causes play a major roll during my assessment. 3. What are some ways found in this week's readings and this week's discussion about managing apprehension that may help alleviate challenges or prove useful? I realized most of us missed up during public speaking because we were not relax and that is the most important habit......
