David starts by teasing these overweight individuals that are bring a lawsuit against McDonalds, but then later admits that he used to be overweight as a child and was able to change his life around. He made a point to show health concerns with being obese and eating fast food regularly, such as type two diabetes which has risen about twenty-five percent since 1994. This raise in diabetes also requires much funding for the United States to spend to try to find a cure. David explains how there is very few alternatives for the youth of America because those health alternatives are more expensive and harder to find. False advertising is also another unpleasant practice that fast food companies use to lure in costumers.
One reason why the Conservatives won is there Stop-Go economic policy. Although the policy itself was bad the Conservatives engineered it by making it a go period when the election came round. They did this by ‘electioneering’ the Budget and cut income tax, purchase tax and the duty on beer. This made the public feel like the economy was good as most of them vote with their wallets they voted Conservative. The Labour economy policies are also a reason why they lost.

I noticed as the demand for oil increases the prices also increases. The uses of this natural resource also has somewhat of a domino affect in that the constant burning of theses now expensive and depleting source is also harming the environment through global warming.
Here in North Carolina the rate of food hardships has continued to climb and it has become more and more difficult for these families to keep food on the table. There are two aspects of this hunger situation in North Carolina, one being the family relying on Food Stamps and the other being the family whose income hangs just above the mark to qualify them for any type of food subsidy. Personally, I have seen families in my community face the challenge of deciding whether to pay the mortgage or purchase groceries. These families, generally speaking , are not considered to be “low-income” families but because of job loss, increased expenses such as higher gas prices and food prices make it more difficult now for them to put food on the table. The family on Food Stamps also face many of these same issues as well and
Diversity is a very proud term representing the United States as a melting pot containing many different races in a country. As Caucasians always is the biggest group of the population, but the other difference races has been growing fast such as Hispanic and Asian and these two groups will grow twice as many by 2050 (Kelly & McGowan, 2012 p.12). Diversity change will shift way of living, spending, working style from location to location depend on the change. The changes would impact the investment direction of companies because location, race, living style, spending habit and power of work force. Therefore, companies would have to recalculate on their future investment strategy.
It has to do with a person’s willingness to work hard, and I think it’s always been that way” (Scott and Leonhardt 2005:5). There are many arguments within the book that describe why class does matter in America today. One argument is the argument that the upper class lives longer than those individuals in classes below them. This is because individuals with a lot of capital have better insurance and means to pay for treatments and medical attention, where the lower class is unable to pay for medical treatment. As quoted in the book, “As advances in medicine and disease prevention have increased life expectancy in the United States, the benefits have disproportionately gone to people with education, money, good jobs, and connections” (Scott 2005:29).
There is also going to be a great rush of new patients in a short amount of time due to the huge number of people expected to be covered by Obama-Care because the guidelines have been opened up so much more. Government insurance use to only cover people who are low income, now low income and anyone with a preexisting condition are covered. Higher income people are going to be facing much higher premiums. The guidelines for treatment are a change in progress as well. There will be new regulations to what kind of treatment will be covered and for how long.
Just think about what we could use the extra money we get and how we can use it on the poor cities to make them better. I know I did not grow up in a great neighborhood. So I was thinking that Abelson was also hinting at how we are wasting money on something that we can easily take care of. We have to adjust lot things today because of overweight people. The newspaper by New York Times states, “the costs of obesity, whether in rising health care coverage for companion diseases like diabetes or for wider seats on buses and airplanes, have been documented throughout the course of the nation’s epidemic”(Abelson).
The fact that families and households will limit their spending due to terminations or hours cut, more and more families will prioritize spending. Some households may be pushed to the limit of applying for unemployment, food stamps, and other programs there to aid the poverty population. There will be no other available options for some and they may begin to rely on these government assistance programs. Not only will the employees suffer the consequences but also so will the employers. If the employers fail to provide health insurance, they will be fined a minimum of 2000 dollars per employer uninsured.
A new report released on October 24 said that a proposal pending in Congress to raise the minimum wage would increase retail food prices for American consumers by at most 10n cents a day. Therefore, it causes more people be starving because of expensive food and their lives quality are going to be lower because of expensive stuff. So then, the rate of poverty is going to be increasing every single day. It does not stop here, increasing minimum wage is also limitary the ways to help less educated workers get rid of
