As many people would recognize, there is a rising obesity problem in America and there are many influences that could contribute to this. Fast food is not the healthiest choice but, they should not be to blame for making children obese. In David Zinczenko’s “Don’t Blame the Eater” he talks about how the obese population is blaming fast food companies for their health situations. He begins his argument with what he observes as a ridiculous headline, which is that kids are suing McDonalds for being fat. David starts by teasing these overweight individuals that are bring a lawsuit against McDonalds, but then later admits that he used to be overweight as a child and was able to change his life around.
Carlton Coleman February 14, 2013 Dr Gavin Shulz Meatless Monday: Invitation to A Bean Feast It is true that many people suffer from obesity. The author says she is a vegan and that is a healthy lifestyle choice. The author believes that with the current environment there is a food shortage and suggest that now is the time to go vegan. Ellen Kanner says “we have a billion people suffering from obesity and obesity related illness, another billion suffering from a lack of food”(Kanner). However, going vegan is not the answer to this problem.
This student shouldn’t have been expelled for his choice of words, because actions were not involved in the situation. You have the right to express your opinion in any way or form. Hann was kicked out for speech and only speech. I understand words could be offensive but there wasn’t any sort of physical combat that hurt other students for Hann to get expelled. In the press release Gregorian underlined the word actions, stating that rules don’t proscribe words they proscribe behavior.
SOL WRITING PROMPT PRACTICE Students should not be required to volunteer in their communities in order to receive their high school diplomas. This is because community service is not academic, volunteering is something that a person does if they want to help, not because they’re being forced to, and while some may say that community service looks good on resumes, if everyone does it then it’s not special anymore. Volunteering to do community service is a beneficial activity for the volunteer and the community, but making it mandatory to graduate defeats the purpose. High school diplomas are received based on a student’s academic credits and scores. Or at least they should be, because students go to high school in order to get an education and learn and improve their academic knowledge.
In fact, other sources point to the fact that McDonald’s is much further from these goals than the soya initiative's apparent success would indicate. Suppliers in McDonald’s supply chain are still employing practices that are contrary to the sustainability goals. For example, on the issue of animal welfare, the chickens raised for McDonald’s white meat products live in terrible conditions (Kenner 2008). The main problem is that McDonald’s does not use strict enough auditing measures on its suppliers regarding sustainable practices and corporate social responsibility. As a result of this lax auditing of its suppliers, McDonald’s was forced to retroactively create a large-scale soya initiative, enacted after Greenpeace’s outcry.
But the administration of these codes should not give criminals sanctuary from the law.” With this thought in mind, it came to my sense that the title of this article basically summarizes to whole discussion. The title can help you come up with the idea that students shouldn’t be ignoring the law, and throughout the article are reasons why. If a student were to commit a crime on campus, the university security wouldn’t even be able to fine or imprison the student. “The penalty for criminal assault is often not much worse than being tossed out of a club”. After being given the example of the student who was still
This case relates to practice issues in regards whether or not to project an error to the sample population. This case is unique in the fact that it’s hard to parallel it to other cases discussed in class thus far. DeBurger had no specific evidence that the inventory account balance was materially misstated. He was only able to formulate his assumption from working with the speculation that Marcelle’s was going to write off the inventory of two of their sales departments. Other cases discussed in class have shown the fraud being perpetrated to have intent behind it.
The specific examples in this case study that exemplify these symptoms are how that Tom, Susie, and Richard all formed a plan without the consideration or input from the two new members of the group – Mark and Betty. Then there was how Tom asserted his “knowledge” that the group did not need outside references despite the instructions and despite Mark’s concern on the matter. This was followed by the attitude given to him by Susie and Richard for even challenging the three members’ plan at all. Then we have the example of fear shown by Mark and Betty to voice their concerns to the professor because of how the rest of the members of the group may handle it based on their
Why Students Drop out of College As a college freshman, a lot of information discussed in the article is relevant to me and my peers around me. In the article, “Why Students Drop out of College” by Diane Fisher, the author writes about many issues that college students face like poor studying habits, high school transition into college, social life on campus and many more. As a result, I do agree with Fisher’s reasoning as to why students drop out of college. Many topics discussed in the article are definitely out and about on college campuses. When first arriving to college, students don’t have the mandatory push that parents and teachers used to give.
The response from five college administrators interviewed was not so encouraging initially however when the data regarding students’ disregard to dormitory rules was presented, their attitude softened. The venture capitalists also refuted the idea as they were reluctant to put faith in a non-high tech appliance being promoted by an inexperienced individual. Also the margins in the business were relatively low while the cash flow risks were high. While student dormitories and motel rooms were the primary targets, there were opportunities even through the independent distributor channel to retail stores. The product design was also such that it could easily be replicated by other leading players.
