Shayne AricayosMr. Chris MayerEnglish 10514 Sep. 2015 It’s Time To Put Guam On Your Bucket List Is there a paradise that is Hawaii but somewhere along the line of a little Texas feel? Author Chloe Fox wrote the article, “11 Reasons Guam Is the Most Exotic Destination In America” that was published in 2014 in The Huffington Post and gives us insights on why Guam should be our next destination. Fox begins building her credibility with personal facts, reputable sources and successfully employing emotional appeals such as, “You won't regret visiting Guam.” Although she should have added more details about Guam that people really don't know to really grasp the attention of the readers who I presume wants to learn more about this little rock. Overall, she’s done a
In my opinion, Carnival should have changed the route regularly to insure the safety of each person on that excursion. Executive vice President of CLIA, Bob Sharak stated in a recent article “From 2005 through 2010 more than 100 million people took a cruise vacation. In that period there were 16 fatal marine-related casualties." (Sharak 57). With this revealing statistic, new and current cruise passengers should not feel uneasy when it comes to taking a cruise.
C Dang Econ 2/ Econ Naturalist Paper I chose to discuss about Elasticity along with Time Horizon and how the example of buying a ticket for the San Francisco 49ers is affected. If the 49ers were sitting in the top 5 teams of the conference after Week 14 in the regular schedule of the National Football League season, it would force elasticity to respond in a much more reactive way. If they were slated to end the regular season without a playoff appearance, the price elasticity of a ticket would react in the opposite direction. If the SF 49ers were slated to make it into the Post-Season Playoff picture, the ticket prices to the last 3 weeks (games) would make the prices adjust to the demand of the fans. The last 3 weeks of the season
If a house is not completed within this time frame, the realtor wants to be able to charge the contractor a penalty. If there is a reasonable likelihood Moore Housing Contractors cannot finish a house within 45 days, they want to increase their bid to cover potential penalty charges. II. Analysis Question 1 * Gambar AON * Probability * Does it appear that the Moores might need to increase their bid to compensate for potential penalties? Question 2 Critical path for Moore Housing Contractors: a => b => e => g => k => m => q => t => v => x Moore Housing Contractors should focus their attention to activity that lays on the critical path such as a (excavation), b (lay foundation), e (sewer drains), g (pour basement floor), k (install furnace), m (install plaster), q (subflooring), t (kitchen cabinetry), v (painting), and x (final electrical).
For years, it was common knowledge in Louisiana and Washington that New Orleans could be destroyed by a hurricane. But decision makers turned away from the long term investments that might have averted a catastrophe, pursuing instead projects with more immediate payoffs. Some of those projects made the city more vulnerable. The actions above, reflects the incremental theory of public
It is also a possibility that there will be a “permanent” El Niño in the future. The article is appropriate for the class to read at this time because it pertains to what we have discussed in class. The articles mentions effects El Niño and La Niña have effected people in the past and we have discussed how El Niño may effect people. We talked about the trade winds associated with El Niño and the change in water temperature. Warm water in the pacific is usually pushed to the west but during El Niño the warm water stays near the Northwestern coasts of South America which can cause damages in fishing and changes in weather pattern across the world.
With flooding becoming an increasingly concerning issue in parts of New Jersey, and not just in the coastal areas, Governor Chris Christie has proposed a vast plan to purchase properties in flood prone neighborhoods so that the land can be returned to floodplain. Over the past few decades, some regions of the state have gone from areas not prone to flooding to being designated as flood zones (Spoto). Christie has said that he wants the sales to be voluntary, but the governor would be within his rights if he were to use the power of eminent domain to ultimately improve the areas for the common good. The use of eminent domain in this case would be constitutional due to the Supreme Court’s broadening of the power over the nation’s history, as well as the Takings Clause in the Constitution, and New Jersey State eminent domain law. The power of eminent domain in the United States is derived from the Constitution as well as the rulings of the Supreme Court.
What importance is there in how the general population perceives storm watches and warnings? For example, how did the population of New Orleans react to the warnings about Hurricane Katrina? This can be very opinionated and I believe that when there is a storm coming and the weather models are tracking it with a high probability to hit within a certain area like the Outer Banks, for the most part, the majority of people will evacuate so that they are not cut off from the rest of civilization. Many of the people that are down there during the hurricane season are also tourist and usually have a sense about them that will heed the warning. The locals will have a tendency to stay a little longer and board up their houses, put everything away

Aside from using anecdotes, Gore creates scenarios as a way of allowing the audience to better understand his arguments. For example, he presents the scenario of what would happen if the oceans continue to rise. He shows images of how much water would be taking over pieces of land such as Florida, California, and China, and how many homes and buildings would be lost. “After 911 we said ‘never again,’ but they let this happen.” This is a
