In this particular case, 111 innocent people lost their lives in 1947 because public officials in public administration did not regard the public safety of those people who depended upon them to enforce regulations set in place to protect them. The lives of many families were changed forever. John Bartlow Martin, in his writings about the incident, called “The Blast in Centralia No. 5: A Mine Disaster No One Stopped” recounts the catastrophe and tries to bring some understanding as to why the disaster occurred. LOGISTICAL ALTERNATIVES Driscoll O. Scanlan was the mine inspector at the mine when this disaster occurred.
They are packaged in single doses that are very convenient and easy to use for consumers. The pods dissolve completely, except for the outer packaging which has a smaller environmental impact through reduced packaging. Market Force 1: Governmental Environment If a company fails to comply with government rules and regulations there could be fines, sanctions, and other legal actions taken against them. Tide Pods has faced new laws and regulations due to child endanger alerts. There have been accidental children poisoning incidents, which led to the government stepping in.
This alludes that disease spread as he food was unable to cook properly and therefore people may have caught disease from food poisoning. This supports source Y as it about the rapid growth of diseases with it saying there were “twenty two cases of sickness this morning”. With the amount of British troops already lacking in number, with this amount of sicknesses possibly happening daily, it would undoubtedly decrease the amount of firepower to the army which would prevent them from making any great strides in the war. However although sources X and Y both support each other, it can only be to an extent as they both talk about different causes which may mean that the two authors may have had different viewpoints and therefore may not agree completely. Both these sources, do however challenge source W a great deal as both counter argue, pretty much everything source W is saying and with sources X and Y both coming from people actually experiencing the conditions and having less of a reason to lie, you would have to say that they are more reliable sources than source W as it is more than likely that the newspaper article is more trying to ease the worry of those back home rather than telling the full truth of what is going on, partly maybe due to the ban on reporting any of the action which may also have
While at a glance each of these programs may seem harmless, Dr. Spencer illustrates why he believes America’s economy is declining because of the current system. Dr. Spencer states,” The most useful role of government in the economy is to make sure people –especially companies and businesses-play by the rules.” Anti-trust laws for example provide rules that prevent monopolies in the market. Many of the programs the government enacts stall the natural effects of supply and demand that drive a free market and are in fact monopolies. As is
Over consumption has led to many cures and medicines being created, and has made the world a better and safer place then it once was. The Buy Nothing Day would only hinder the progress that mankind has made in keeping the environment intact. The way of life in the 21st century has and will be defined by consumerism. Consumerism has lifted nations out of recessions and created millions of jobs and opportunities. The Buy Nothing Day is just a way for environmentalists to voice their theories about how to fix the environment.
Task 3 Antitrust laws were set up by the federal government as a way to try to keep business in fair competition with each other. They were preventing businesses from forming monopolies, oligopoly, and illegal mergers. The laws were attempting to prevent businesses from trying to fix prices, which in turn would help the production of quality goods and better services. Healthy and fair competition between businesses would make sure that consumer demands are met not only by the manufactures but also with the sale of the goods being at reasonable prices. It began with the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890.
We rarely think completely about where the food we eat comes from and how is it produced. "Food, Inc.", a frank and sometimes grisly expose of the profit-driven food profession in the United States, is sure to shake up our views of what we eat. Factory system was conveyed to the back of the kitchen, after which food began to be formed on assembly lines. From the film, we can see that health and safety are frequently ignored by those companies, and are often overlooked by government in an struggle to provide cheap food heedlessly of these bad penalties. According to data, 70% of antibiotics are used on farm animals.
Slaughterhouse Five was banned on political grounds for showing the American firebombing of Dresden in World War II. The destruction of 135,000 people (almost twice as destructive as the atomic bombing of Hiroshima) is something that I had never even heard of. Obviously, the US Army has done a good job in keeping it quiet. Teachers and administration claimed that the book displayed "un-Godliness, bathroom language, and an unpatriotic portrayal of war." I believe that the unpatriotic aspects of the war is the main reason the book was banned.
People actually just packed up their life and moved away. Mark Sauer, a Polio Survivor is quoted with saying that Polio ‘was the robber of hope for a generation, several generations of children, there were many other diseases that were bad for America, but Polio broke its heart.’ The disease did not seem to have rhyme or reason and acted much like a tornado, affecting some but not others. With the absence of any concrete knowledge on how to stop the spread of Polio, panic and hysteria took over. Sunday schools closed and children under the age of 16 were not allowed to attend local theaters. Medical professionals and scientists initially blamed the spread on the filth and overcrowding in the immigrant neighborhoods.
On 4 February 1915, in response to the German submarine blockade of Great Britain, the Royal Navy seized all food destined for Germany which led to extreme food shortages. Prior to this, Germany had imported 25% of what was consumed and was not self-sufficient in terms of food. In response to this, a War Food Office was set up in 1916 but its actions were often counter-productive for example when they ordered the killing of 9 million pigs due to that fact they consumed grain. This consequently led to less pork and fertiliser and ultimately had a negative impact. Following the Auxiliary Service Law in December 1919, which required all able-bodied Germans to work for the war effort, there was a sharp increase of social unrest as Germans felt their rights being curtailed.
