Corporate social responsibility is a business’s obligation to maximise its positive impact and minimise its negative impact on society (Ferrell, O. C 2011). The Global Business Standards Codex; fiduciary principal, transparency principal and the citizenship principal are most suitable to evaluate the tobacco industry's method of using corporate social responsibility to change their unethical public image. The tobacco industry facing issues such as marketing and advertising, conflicts of interest and public criticisms have all taken part in creating that unethical public image and by using corporate social responsibility they may have a chance in obtaining back that positive public image. The tobacco industry is expected by its stakeholders to act ethically in its business decisions.
Oil dependent countries, often Western, must remain in favour with oil rich supplying nations such as in the Middle East and Russia. It is this need that often determines foreign policy or influences political decisions. At present, Saudi Arabia has strong links with the USA and other Western countries, and as a result oil flows from one to the other. However, any changes in leadership transition, economic reform or acts of terrorism could see this arrangement change. Under Saddam Hussein’s rule, Iraq faced UN economic sanctions that constrained the oil industry making trade very difficult.

Explain the trends over the past ten years in the unemployment rate, the participation rate and wage outcomes with reference to specific industries and gender in the Australian economy. Since 2003 the Australian Labour market has seen unprecedented changes in both its unemployment rate, participation rate and wage outcomes. The changes have been caused by a number of events and advancements, namely the 2008 Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and the change in attitudes towards employment by employers and employees, to name a few. The greatest problem in the labour market in the past 10 years has been the high level of unemployment. Unemployment is defined as when a person is actively searching for unemployment but unable to find work and is
and Congress to make the necessary amendments to the current laws and regulations to prevent these two problems. His audience consists of the people of New York, those interested in tobacco laws and products, and probably a fair share of the United States considering the fact that it is a popular news source that is available online. The genre of this article is an editorial, and, as for the context, Andrew may have some bias against tobacco products due to the time era we live in, which has become strongly anti-tobacco over the years. Also, there could be some bias against the large tobacco corporations due to the struggling economy and recent government bailouts, which has brought many of the American public to look at large industries in a negative light. My understanding of the rhetorical situation has helped my understanding of this article by forcing me to look deeper into the meaning behind the words written, rather than simply glancing over it.

The Maryland emissions board should be reactionary in making this happening, and especially hold power plants accountable if violations happen. New systems and technologies should be used or created in reducing the creation of pollutants. Even though plant owners may be reluctant in doing so due to cost and other factors, policymakers have the authority and should exercise that power by deciding what steps are needed in the improvement of the effect and role of what particle pollutant matter has brought. The community can step up in monitoring and being a watchdog, mainly because this is a direct effect of their community being affected. Air quality standards must consistently be reviewed and changed according to the statistics shown.
Marijuana being illegal is only making us spend more money. All of this would make America better in my opinion. The only downside I see to legalizing marijuana would be the easy access to everyone. Specially the children, they are ones we worry about, but if we are as strict as we are with cigarettes and liquor, I think things will be ok. We will just need to raise the fines and be harsh with them. Now stores would not want to sell it illegally to minors.
The OPA established plans to handle future oil spills easier. The OPA would also establish plans to prevent the oil spills, and respond to the accidents more rapidly than previous oil spills. Provisions were created to allow the federal governments to respond with resources and money in a future case of an oil spill (EPA, 2011). The Oil Pollution Act of 1990 enforces strict penalties for individuals, which do not comply with the laws. The OPA enforces the industries and the government to have new guidelines for contingency plans.
