Some people say that the UN is a failure. We have set high expectations for the UN, which their budget cannot simply even hope to meet. Even though the UN has so little money, people want it to stop wars, feed the hungry, and fight terrible diseases, such as AIDS. No wonder some people consider the UN to be a failure! But what does the UN really do, and is the UN an organization that is worth our money, and our time?
Human health alone is not the full extent of the problems related to genetically engineered foods. The effects that the pesticides have on our environment are also a major concern. Dangerous toxins are excreted into our water supply. That alone should be enough to raise some eyebrows, but there’s still even more. Large companies have totally neglected any responsibility to what is best for the common good, and have greedily taken advantage of our capitalist country to increase their own personal wealth at the expense of others.
The Labour economy policies are also a reason why they lost. Gaitskell promised to increase public spending without increasing taxes. This put his credibility under question. Another reason is that although voters were happy with the nationalisation of electricity, gas, atomic energy and airline industries they thought public ownership of coal and the railways had been a failure when they were last in government and there was little enthusiasm for further nationalisation which Labour was committed to by Clause Four of the Labour Party Constitution. Another reason why Conservatives won is that in there manifesto they promised to stabilise the cost of living which would close the gap between rich and poor and double everyone’s standard of living.
In Living wage sure beats welfare, they say William Bole reports that Rev. Doug Miles found that many of those lining up for the food pantry were holding down full time jobs. “They just couldn’t live on what they were making.” (Bole) In an effort to fix this the Rev. Doug Miles pushed for a living wage, far more than the current minimum wage at the time. The minimum wage that welfare reform was expecting people to live off of was in fact not enough to even support the buying of food.
The housing market also plummeted leading to negative equity, which the majority of the working class could not afford resulting in the repossession of their houses combined with the drastic increase in unemployment Britain was in a mess. However Major did have some success, he abolished poll tax, which was very popular among the public, he increased spending on the NHS and introduced transport subsides to keep travel fares low.
Bob the Failure of American Schools-Critical Lens 10/3/11 College Composition Sometimes the title of the story is quite self-explanatory. The Failure of American Schools is due to factors that go beyond the brink of just learning. Joe Klein is a man that tells the truth behind the New York education system and it’s not a pretty one by any means necessary. The truth is that the since 1980, the United States of America has failed to succeed in the world of Education. After “Radical Reform”, only “Incremental Change” has occurred.
They argue the Buy Nothing Day would wake the world to take on the environmental problems that consumerism has created. This argument is flawed. and wrong. Consumerism has created new ways of recycling products and much more. Companies are forced to create safer products for the public to use, and also learn to make better with fewer resources.
The number of products imported from other counties has increased over the years and exports have seriously decreased. So, it seems that the United States finds itself in a very similar situation as in the Great Depression of the 1930s. The government didn't learn from their mistakes made back then therefore the economic situation has returned. Instead they find themselves with an economy overloaded with product, financial inflation and deflation which has lead to serious workers unemployment. Therefore, as I stated before The Great Depression came about because of three main causes, in my opinion these three causes were not properly dealt with which has people believing that the United States has fallen into another depression similar to the one in the 1930s.
Fatty Fat Fat: Political Gluttony Junking Junk Food by Judith Warner begins to show the problem that our government has taken in an effort to reduce obesity in this country and change the eating habits of all citizens within our country. The Obama administration’s efforts to change the nutritional lifestyle of American’s are extremely not successful, but also viewed as offensive. There is no way to make junk food illegal; in order change America’s diet, they need to change the way Americans view junk food. The author makes the reader subconsciously decide that America’s obsession with junk food is, in fact, irrational and absurd. Warner’s audience is pointed out to be anyone interested in how the government would have the ability to successfully change the diets of Americans.
P America’s Obesity Crisis Obesity has plagued America. Poor food choices and sedentary lifestyles are two accelerants which continue to fuel this fire. I view this as a lack of responsibility of ones self. As adults, we need to be held accountable for the choices we make. While fast food is convenient and sometimes even more affordable than preparing a meal at home, overindulgence in such behavior is directly linked to adverse health problems.
