Rationing the supply of health care services Plan: Upsides of not paying for the NHS | Upsides of paying for the NHS | Assessable for everyone | Low demand | Equal quality | Lower cost for government | Guaranteed treatment | Lower waiting list | Some treatments are too expensive | The NHS is ‘free at the point of use for consumers’ so health care is available to everyone and not just those who can afford it. This is good for the economy as it prevents poorer people from not being able to work as they can get the health care. It also allows people to have a better variety of health care than they would usually be able to afford such as children having free dental care. It also means more immediate health care as doctors don’t need to check for a certain type of insurance before treating a patient. The problem with everyone being able to use the NHS means that it is in high demand.

Whatever they argue or use to explain obesity, functionalists would say that it is valid and important to society and is better for society as a whole. Conflict theory is based entirely in power and how those in power do all they can to hold the majority of the population down and to keep them from gaining power, so as to secure their own position. Conflict theorists would say that obesity is a product of the living conditions, stress and poor quality of food and health education that those in power choose and enforce for those that aren't in power. Conflict theorists might say that those that are in power (those that make laws, those that own companies, etc) willingly set up society so that the cheaper the good is, the more unhealthy it is, and so the poor might only be able to afford cheap, unhealthy bulk food and become susceptible to obesity. Conflict theorists might say that food education might be controlled by larger government forces (like the Food and Drug Administration, United States Department of Agriculture, American Diatetics Association, etc), who look out for their own bottom line and corporate interests from sponsors and lobbyists.

Impact of Technology on Relationships Technology in everyone of our lives, is rapidly growing in just the short amount of time we have relied on it.

I mean don't get me wrong it has helped us be more effective or efficient in our everyday duties, connecting with far away friends and family even with our work and education. However, with creating an environment where something becomes easier or self sufficient, there is a cost. Faced with this reality and way too often, relationships of many kinds are damaged and made more difficult to establish because of technology and its many personal human or shall I say intimate limitations.
Automated machines will displace low or unskilled workers in firms and offices. However, the servicing of sophisticated products should create more jobs than technology can destroy. The best jobs will be filled by Americans before being filtered to other countries. Americans will be able to create their own working environments and hours. Other countries’ economies present us with challenges and opportunities.
