FedEx was also more innovative and had better operation. • FedEx increase in market value is because in efficient market, all investors have access to information and in this case they believe that FedEx, due to its current market share and operations in China and being an innovative and entrepreneurial company, it has a better chance of benefitting from this agreement. 2. Why didn’t UPS create overnight delivery? How did FedEx get away with successfully entering this market?
Although the dam produces a huge amount of energy for China it has created many problems. The initial main purpose of dams was to control flooding until hydroelectric technology was invented. China has a lot of hydroelectric potential that should be harnessed reasonably. In the case of the TGD (Three Gorges Dam) China is trying to harness too much waterpower by building a mega dam. The TGD produces 18,000 megawatts of electricity, which amounts to 11% of China’s electricity.
High Force Waterfalls High force waterfall is located on the river Tees and is in Middleton-in-Teesdale (County Durham). It forms the boundary between County Durham and the North Riding of Yorkshire. The total height of the waterfall is 29 metres or 70 feet. The reason why it is called high force waterfall is because it is the highest waterfall on the river Tees. Higher than low force waterfall, the word force is used because it is a Viking word that means waterfall when translated.
The Three Gorges Dam is a model for disaster, yet Chinese companies are replicating the model. Huge hydropower cascades have been proposed and are being constructed in some of China’s most pristine and culturally diverse river basins. Around the world, large dams are causing social and environmental devastation while better alternatives are being ignored. It is the world’s biggest hydro project and the problems that come along with it are not unA third of China’s 1.3 billion people live in and around the Yangtze River basin. For centuries,
It was designed to prevent flooding downstream and power up to 15% of China’s energy requirements. This figure has lowered since 1994 due to China’s development. It was also meant to bolster China’s reputation as a green, eco-friendly country. The Three Gorges Dam has many advantages to the local people, such as these: • The Three Gorges Dam has become a tourist attraction with people visiting the dam • The dam produces clean renewable energy. It was initially thought that it would meet 15% of China's energy needs, but this figure has fallen as China has developed.
What are geographic features? Geographic features have are things such as mountains, lakes, rivers, or natural events such as hurricanes and monsoons. Geographic features such as the Yellow River, and the Monsoon floods help fuel the economic expansion of China. China’s economy has been fueled by these geographic features so much that it is considered a major player in the world. In this paper I will discuss of America.
The result was poor farmland and in turn, the poverty of the farmers wasn’t completely solved. But the Dam didn’t bring just negatives to play; it also had significant positive effects. For one, the government hoped to reclaim a large amount of land, and the Dam itself would serve as an electricity producer, converting water to energy. Preventing the damage from the floods was a main issue that the Dam was to solve, and increasing agricultural production due to a change in
Water is a powerful source. It causes erosion or more specifically runoff. The source of a river may come from a mountain. When it rains on the mountains it may create a stream, then later into a river. It turns into a river because of all the water the mountains have and then creates a path.
With reference to an area that you have studied, describe and explain the appropriateness of flood management strategies? (15marks) The Three Gorges dam on the Yangtze River in China can seem a very appropriate strategy of flood management however there are some negatives that show that is not a full proof strategy. The Three Gorges dam was built in 1994 to try and reduce major flooding in cities such as Wuhan and Nanjing. It is 101m high and as well boasts the largest hydroelectric power station in the world with around 26 turbines. Behind the dam is a reservoir which can hold up to 22km³ of water, this act as a catchment are for flood water.
Another way to generate hydropower is by creating a storage system where water is collected by dams that can direct water into the penstock to turn the generator when the demand for electricity is high. The water being held back by the dam becomes lakes that can be used for boating and fishing. The rivers beyond the dam can be used for whitewater rafting and kayaking spots. A perfect example of this is the Hoover dam, built in 1936 between Arizona and Nevada. Lake Mead provides 112 miles of recreation, including boating and fishing.
