Expects say, the estimated cost of this project is around 150 million dollars (Deb Dryer). All that money could be put to a much better cause than the building of a casino. Plus there is already a the existing casino of equal size or bigger that’s only 10 miles away from the proposed location of the wild rose casino. The casino will bring in around 650,000 dollars to the city of Ankeny but cost 150,000 million dollars to build. According to Gillian Pensive an accounting professor at ISU, she believes that this casino is just too large and expensive for the city and will take too long to bring in revenue and develop.
It’s a waste because clean water is not an abundant resource and it will eventually run out. The amount of water used per year for fracking needs to be monitored. Earlier this year in Northern Ohio, over 400,000 residents were left without safe water due to widespread contamination. Residents were even advised not to shower due to the
This was not helped by the fact there were 8 storms in just 2 months.Also, over 407 years there have been 4 major ﬂoods, the frequency being 101.5 years per ﬂood. Flood recurrence is totally random and they can only be predicted based on historical data. This means there are no warnings for a ﬂood, so people must be prepared at all times. This can sometimes be impossible and cost a lot of money to keep ﬂood defences. Flat land over the levels meant water couldn’t be quickly taken away, meaning the depth of the ﬂood increased largely.
It is estimated that by 2021, water efficient products could reduce up to 100,000 ML of domestic water and save more than 800,000 ML. Also about a third of the water saved will come from showers, about 34% from washing machines and about 23% from toilets and urinals. This is only one example of advantage to this policy. Another advantage from this policy is that Australians could save money. It is predicted that by 2021, Australians could save more than one billion dollars.
For example, here in Washington State due to the budget cut, more of the education programs have been taken out. This issue leaves inmates without anything to do and the inmate now have only minimum training working in kitchen and maintenance jobs which due to background check most inmates cannot get a job after they get out . There is minimum scholarship offered to inmates who need to pursuit their education. Also drugs education programs have been decreased because of the budget cut. Even DOSA (Drug Offender Sentencing Act) which says they get half time upon completion of drug counseling, most inmates are unable to complete.
In 2000 there was a vaccine shortage because quality control issues caused a 6-8 week delay in vaccine delivery. That year supplies were distributed unevenly and prices doubled as a cause of the perceived increase in demand. In 2001 only about two thirds of the produced doses were available at the beginning of the flu season. Then again in 2003 the amount of vaccine supplied did not meet the demand for vaccinations because 4 million doses were destroyed and 87 million were inappropriate for that season’s flu strain. Not taking any action in this case has proven to be a bad decision as was quickly learned in 2004.
The lack of school material, clothes, or even living in terrible conditions can lead to the not reaching their full potential due to the lack of motivation. The government in 2012 released 3.5 billion dollars to The Native American Reservations, which for 350,000 people is equivalent to 1000 dollars (Volz, “$3.4B Indian Lawsuit Ends, Disbursements to Begin”). However, how far might this money go in a struggling household? The insufficient environment that Native Americans live in is nothing like we might find in any cities in the Northwest. The lack of motivation caused by years of not having a job and watching your family suffer in poverty is a condition that not too many of us are familiar with.
English Comp 1 November 11, 2013 How Bad Has the Government Shutdown Hurt the Economy? The government shutdown lasted 16 days, and in total, cost 6.6 million in work, with a back pay of $2 billion (Lowrey, A20). It cost many people their jobs which will have to be paid back. Government services which were delayed, like cancer studies, kids left out of Head Start, etc., will up the cost even more (Lowrey, A20). The government didn’t calculate how much this would all cost and what would be delayed because of it.
The current organ donation system has clearly failed at addressing the reoccurring issue with the lack of organ donations as a result many have died and is currently costing the country Billions of dollars. Statistic from June16, 2004 shows that there were 85,744 waiting list candidates waiting to receive an organ and only 6540 transplant were made which is only a mere ten percent of the waiting list (Richard, Schultz 332). This public turmoil had caused many innovative researcher and economist to come up with solution for the ongoing lack of donations in the United States and the world. Unfortunately moral and ethical concerns will have to be the opportunity cost of all the life could be
Even though there are between 3.25 and 16 billion barrels of oil in all of ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge), it would take even more time, money and resources to extract it. The proposed area is only a fraction of ANWR, but would have a large impact and because the area is so small, many of the major oil companies have lost interest in drilling for oil in Alaska. Since the United States uses seven billion barrels of oil a year, or 19 million barrels a day, it would take only 24 days to use every drop of oil in the proposed area! And yes, I do understand that the United States needs to decrease its dependency on foreign oil, but drilling in Alaska is the wrong way to accomplish that. Instead of trying to figure out where to drill the next oil well, we should be finding alternative forms of energy.
