In her Forrester Research report released Monday, Epps argues that when Amazon releases its tablet on the market, it has the potential to become the top competitor to Apple's iPad. The reason? It likely will be marketed at a significantly lower price. "If Amazon launches at a price point significantly lower than competing tablets--some sources suggest that it may be able to launch a 9-inch LCD touchscreen tablet for as low as $299--and has enough supply to meet demand, Forrester estimates that Amazon could sell as many as 3 million to 5 million tablets in Q4 2011 alone," Epps says--meaning Amazon's offering would leapfrog over competeting devices that have been on the market much
They can’t stop smoking because they get addicted to it. Smokers have harmful effects like, they can get lung cancer, heart problems, and other diseases, they are not very healthy. People who smoke have a bad breath and they try to hide it with breath mints or gum. They can’t appreciate the taste of many foods as good as they used to before smoking because of the loss of sense and smell that diminished their ability to taste. Also they have a yellowish color on their fingernails from the pack of the cigarettes.
Marijuana ,could actually bring in a lot of revenue in the country ,as sales of this drug is relatively inexpensive to other drugs, therefore it sales. Instead of spending those millions of rands a year fighting against marijuana, which is as harmful as alcohol and tobacco , which is legal, these funds could be used b the government for education and other crimes. The country , can also use the legalization of marijuana as an economic boost. Legalization of marijuana could reduce the flow of money from the south African economy , to the international crime gangs, who deal with drug smuggling. Marijuana is also too expensive to prevent on a justice system, when the funds can be used elsewhere.
Hypnosis and Smoking Cessation The act of smoking cigarette is not only a key preventable risk factor of diseases, but a significant cause of undue mortality. Smoking is associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, vascular disease, cancer and death of smokers. A large percentage of people who engage in smoking habits are conscious of the risks that the habit poses their lives, and only a small number of current smokers are reluctant to stop the act; however, majority of smokers may not be successful in their attempt to cease smoking on their own. Although, hypnotherapy is a plausible option for smoking cessation, most research findings based on hypnotherapy as a way of ceasing to smoke, have been inconsistent on its randomization.
LED Bulb Research paper Just a few years ago a 60 watt equivalent LED bulb cost upwards of $50 (LaMonica, M n.d.). You’ve probably heard about how expensive LED bulbs are, but there are many benefits to using them that you might not know. Today you can get a 60 Watt equivalent LED bulb for about $10-15 (LaMonica). Some benefits to using LED bulbs in your home are reduced energy costs, longer bulb life, and they’re environmentally friendly. You may have to pay more upfront for an LED light bulb, but did you know that the average homeowner could save a total of $238 a year in energy costs alone by switching to LEDs (Howard, B. n.d.)?
Risks in Vaping To vape or not to Vape? A growing number of smokers are turning to electronic cigarettes (e-cigarretes) to get their nicotine fix instead of smoking traditional cigarettes. Is “vaping” better than smoking? The e-cigarette industry would like us to believe that it is. But more research needs to be done, and regulation is needed.
Good Morning class as you may already know of me and for those who don’t know me , today I will be presenting about smoking , Why people do it , What it does to your health and why we should prohibit it Why People Smoke First of all I would like to talk about "Why people smoke" , 1.

At one point, the idea of using a car that was electric powered may have seemed outrageous. Several questions emerged, such as: can it be done; would it work; how would it work; when would it happen; and how much would it cost. “Record-high oil prices have pushed consumers towards fuel-efficient vehicles and prompted many governments to consider electric transport as a way to escape their dependence on imported petroleum and to address climate change” (ebscohost.com). Here are a few of the many reasons why cars should be more efficient. First, cars should be more efficient because the cost to the consumer may decrease.
An individual’s desire to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes has led them to a new controversial device known as the electronic cigarette. The users of the E-cig do not know the long-term effects of second hand vapors, nor is it evident if it is a healthier alternative to tobacco products. According to Christensen (2014), “Smoking is still the leading cause of avoidable death in the United States. The devices are not one of the FDA-approved methods to help people quit, but many people are using them this way. A growing number of scientists are studying them to see whether they may be a way to end an epidemic.” The public is in need of this clinical research in an effort to clarify whether the vapors from these electronic devices are harmful to themselves and others.
Over the past few decades or so, the major cigarette companies have pursued a safer cigarette but have not gotten very far. “Industry researchers often found ways of lowering one or two of the dangerous compounds, only to discover that their tinkering had either increased the level of some other harmful compound or so dramatically altered the cigarette that it wouldn't be accepted by consumers.” (PBS-Cigarette History). All in all the cigarette companies have only brought down the levels of tar and cyanide in cigarettes but have not really made much progress in making a “safer cigarette.” Through all these efforts and all the ages of trying, cigarettes are still harmful to the human body. Smoking harms nearly every organ in our system, and causes many diseases, not to mention the reduction in the general health of
