The Bill was created to prevent a repeat of the Bonus March of 1932 and a relapse into the Great Depression after World War II ended. The American Legion (a veterans group) was essentially responsible for many of the Bill’s provisions. The Legion managed to have the bill apply to all who served in the armed services, including African Americans and women. The fact that the Bill paid for a G. I.’s entire education encouraged many universities across the country to expand enrollment. For example, the University of Michigan had fewer than 10,000 students prior to the war, but in 1948 its enrollment was well over 30,000.
Case 14-1 (Green and Lean) Going Green has economic advantages which normally impact profitability. For George and Jeff to achieve their objective about going Green and lean simultaneously, they need to focus on some of the old axioms for transportation efficiency, namely, “don’t ship air” and “don’t ship water.” “Don’t ship air”, this recognizes that empty space in a motor carrier trailer or from empty backhauls or less- than-capacity dispatches is wasted and never recovered. So George and Jeff can put emphasis on consolidation to fill equipment to capacity or near capacity. This has a potential to significantly reduce network miles, especially in the motor carrier sector. The reduction in the network miles will improve fuel efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint.
Our international trade with Europe declined because of that. Europe was productive in industry and agriculture. This caused their demand for American goods to slow, and since Europe had obtained a major debt from the war, they were not capable of paying back American banks the large sums of money that they had previously borrowed. Even though they had planned to pay America back, they couldn’t. Their plan was to use the money they were going to receive from Germany and Austria, but the Central powers never followed through.
In previous years, the United States believed that paper money was a percentage of the public debt, however in current times the paper money is referred to as a certain type of obligation. It is called an obligation because the paper money is not able to be paid with silver, gold, or any other definite objects of important significance. The government of a country has the responsibility for the public debt. Even though citizens have the obligation as taxpayers to pay funds for compensation of interest and principal, these individuals property cannot be attached to meet the requirement if the government is unsuccessful in doing so. On the same note, property owned by the government is not usually able to be taken to meet these obligations.
Solar energy is a non-pollutant, cost effective, maintenance free, life span of up to 40 years; however the upfront cost is enormous, and not everyone can afford the cost to put the stylish panels on their roof tops. Many jobs would be lost at the oil field however more jobs would be created by installing other methods of
Henry Ford put Winslow’s ideas to good use, creating the assembly line to mass produce his Model T car. Since production costs decreased, Ford was able to pay his workers enough so that they could afford their own Model T. Ford’s workers were the first to be paid a sufficient amount (Danzer 333). America, the land of opportunities, quickly became a melting pot of cultures due to its many prospects. People from all countries “melted” together in one big community. Immigrants, especially Jews, gathered in the United
Biochar is made by slow cooking plant wastes until it becomes a carbon-rich char that is mixed with soil and buried underground. This process keeps the carbon created by the plant waste in the soil instead of being released into the atmosphere. Charcoal has positive effects on plant life. It adds a source of carbon to plants, speeds water drainage, allows good air flow in the soil and stops the growth of bacteria and fungi. The company Carbon Gold who will help to create the product, states that it is an effective way of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Recycling has been the center of many ethical and environmental arguments for years. It’s hard for people to make the decision to recycle or not because they are so many arguments for and against recycling. The government has tried to regulate recycling but that could just be another reason for people not to do it. There are articles upon articles written about recycling persuading people to recycle, persuading them not to. What it comes down to is if one believes recycling is good for the environment and is ethical, or if the bad outweighs the good and recycling is bad and unethical.
But what is their direct ease on enforcing this law? After this law was passed, beside major benefits like contributing to decrement of global warming, San Francisco benefited in many other ways. Firstly, environment pollution and volume of waste was significantly reduced. Secondly, they saved money that they spent on disposing waste materials. Thirdly, people are less likely to experience deceases caused by polluted
This exploratory argumentative paper will delve deep into the case of why recycling the non0biodegradeable waste should be made mandatory by the government for all private individuals and corporate entities to comply with. The United States authorities tasked with environmental conservation have been working hard towards making sure that people understand the importance of recycling waste. These efforts, however, have not been successful as these government agencies are yet to be able to fully employ voluntary conservation approaches throughout the country. A good case in point is the city of Seattle where any individual who throws away
