gre5ryry Gun-related violence is most common in poor urban areas and in conjunction with gang violence, often involving juveniles or young adults.[1][2] Gun violence is not new in the United States, with the assassinations of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865, and of Presidents James Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy. High profile gun violence incidents, such as the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and, more recently, the Columbine High School massacre, the Beltway sniper attacks, the Virginia Tech massacre, and the 2011 Tucson shooting, have fueled debate over gun policies.[3]

There were 52,447 deliberate and 23,237 accidental non-fatal gunshot injuries in the United States during 2000.[4] The majority of gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides,[5] with 17,352 (55.6%) of the total 31,224 firearm-related deaths in 2007 due to suicide, while 12,632 (40.5%) were homicide deaths.[6]

Policies at the Federal, state, and local levels have attempted to address gun violence through a variety of methods, including restricting firearms purchasing by youths and other "at-risk" populations, setting waiting periods for firearm purchases, establishing gun "buy-back" programs, targeted law enforcement and policing strategies, stiff sentencing of gun law violators, education programs for parents and children, and community-outreach programs. Research has found some policies such as gun "buy-back" programs are ineffective, while Boston's Operation Ceasefire, a gang violence abatement and intervention strategy, has been effective.[7] Gun policies are also highly influenced by debates over the interpretation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, and in 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court took a position for the first time on this issue in District of Columbia v. Heller, holding that the second amendment secures…...

To know about the Present scenario of Waste generation and waste management in Bangladesh. 2. Solid waste management in Chittagong perspective. 3. Recycling process; especially in ‘Ananda-Bazar garbage treatment plant’ in Chittagong. METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY Practical survey in Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) area and secondary data analysis. LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY I tried my best to collect the maximum information from Chittagong City Corporation. But this report is not free from shortcomings. While preparing this report I faced some problems. These are as follows: 1.Time limitation; 2.Limited data regarding waste management as in Chittagong there is only one recycling plant; 3.Communication problem as the plant is in a backward place; I, therefore, hope that the study will be judged considering the above-mentioned shortcomings. Solid waste management concept Solid waste can be defined as material that no longer has any value to the person who is responsible for it, and is not intended to be discharged through a pipe. It does not normally include human excreta. It is generated by domestic, commercial, industrial, healthcare, agricultural and mineral extraction activities and accumulates in streets and public places. The words “garbage”, “trash”, “refuse” and......

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

...The Great Pacific Garbage Patch This article is about the trash that ends up in the oceans and builds up into a giant garbage patch. When people throw their garbage on the ground it ends up in a small body of water and eventually travels into the ocean and gets stuck in this unbelievably large collection of trash. I think it is terrible when people litter because that litter ends up in the oceans and can hurt many animals. This problem is very serious and needs to be looked at as a bigger problem. Even though there are a lot of other problems going on in the world today, this is a big one that is affecting harmless animals all over. Plastic bags are mistaken for jellyfish, bottle caps are also, and are fed to baby birds. This is proven when birds die and left inside the body are tons of bottle caps and broken down plastic. I think this problem can be solved or at least made a little better. One possible solution is to ban plastic bags so people use the reusable ones. They could also make recycling a law. I am not sure how much can be done of what is already in the garbage patch, but we can try to keep it from getting worse. Because the water flows so far, there could always be places set up to pick up garbage that was missed earlier. This garbage patch is out of control and is only going to get worse, unless we decide to do something about it. It hurts animals, our water and will eventually hurt us....

Garbage Can Model

...Garbage can model Past questions 1, what is it about organizations that have meant that we have ended up with a garbage can theory of decision making? 2, under what organizational conditions would the garbage can theory of decision making apply? Watson, 2006  Within the micropolitics, numerous goals and purposes  The outcomes of every political engagement will strengthen the strategic position of the organization and compromise the organization’s long-term survival.  The official structure and culture of the org (the formal blue print or ‘organizational design’, calculations and actions of organizational actors) contributes to the negotiated order of the organization.  According to the control system and a narrowing career ladder, we see a pattern of order in which things seem ‘very organised’ and ‘disorganised’ – anarchic even.  Organized anarchy was used to capture the quality of organizational life  The term usefully brings out the rather paradoxical quality of all organizational processes: their tendency, at the same time, to be both very organized and ‘very disorganized’.  The garbage can model of organizational choice developed by these same researchers can usefully help us see how this ‘disorganized-organization’ quality of organized life manifests itself in decision making situations in organizations generally.  Definition: garbage can model of organizational choice  Organizational decisions are influenced by the various problems that exist......

...Research Paper Vehicle users who throw garbage out of the car windows exhibit no respect for themselves and for the environment. Submitted to Prof. Saima Bhaur 13th June, 2013 Acknowledgement It was a interesting and learning experience of doing this research.We would like to thanks specially to our Professor Saima Bhaur for giving her valuable suggestions and help while doing this research. We would like to thanks all the students who have filled the questionnaire. We are also thankful to the university for providing us great opportunity for doing this research. Finally we would like to thanks to our friends for their support. Abstract This is very important to know the effects of littering and garbage throwing out of cars. Why people do this? They are just careless about everything. They even do not know that throwing trash harms our environment and it is also harmful for the animals too. There are too many bad effects. The people who do this have no respect at all. This can be habitual. We have noticed that teenagers throw trash out of cars just for fun. They usually enjoy doing this. To know about all this we have conducted a quantitative research. We have conducted a survey consisting of questionnaire. Our sample size was fifteen. We have asked nine close ended questions relating to this problem to gather data. One question was open ended in which we have noticed different thinking about this issue. After doing all this research we......

Rev. 4(1): 143–170 (2007) ARTICLE Econo-physics: A Perspective of Matching Two Sciences Yuri YEGOROV Institute for Advanced Studies, Stumpergasse 56, A-1060, Vienna, Austria, and University of Vienna, Department of Industry and Energy, Brünner Strasse, 72, A-1210, Vienna, Austria. E-mail: yegorov@ihs.ac.at Abstract The present article marks some potentially fruitful dimensions of economic research based on principles of economic theory but using more analogies with physics. Molecular structure of society with its different states, principles generating spontaneous order different from “invisible hand”, social analogies of the concepts of temperature and pressure in physics are investigated. Some analogies between phase transitions in physics and transition between different social regimes can reveal the areas of stability of liberal regimes as well as possibility of spontaneous emergence of different social orders. A possibility to expand neoclassical economics to capture Marxism and nationalism in a formal mathematical framework is also discussed. Keywords: economic structures, origin of order, econo-physics, socio-physics. 1. Introduction This article is methodological. It focuses on economic and social questions that are rarely touched by economic theorists despite their obvious importance for our understanding of economic processes in the world. No fully formalized model will be proposed here. Instead, the focus will be on interaction......

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

...The biggest landfill on the earth: Great Pacific Garbage Patch Can you imagine the amount of trash approximately fourteen times bigger than whole Slovakia? No? Then it is about time to make you familiar with Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This large floating landfill is the biggest one in the world. According to Charles Moore, discoverer of Great Pacific Garbage Patch (in 1977), "The ocean is downhill from everything" (as cited in Blomberg, 2011). Considering the fact that high percentage of all trash is produced on the land, it is very surprising then the biggest junk yard is actually in the water and not on the land. Even though, recently many people and companies started to care more about amount of trash in oceans, there is a lack of information about Great Pacific Garbage Patch and related issues among large number of population. First of all, Great Pacific Garbage Patch consists of two parts, Western and Eastern Pacific Garbage Patch as mentioned in article written by Jacob Silverman (n.d.). Some sources refer to Eastern one as Great Pacific Garbage Patch and do not talk about the other one (Boudreau et al., n.d.), even though they do not deny the existence of Western Pacific Garbage Patch it can cause some misunderstanding with names. In this essay, there will be used distinction of Eastern and Western Pacific Garbage Patch as well as collective name Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Eastern one is situated between Hawaii and California, the Western...

Isa pong karangalan sa akin ang makasama kayo ngayong gabing ito. Naiintindihan ko po na sa pagtitipong ito ay may isang isyu tayong talakayin. Alam natin natin ang kahalagahan na masolusyunan ito at alam natin na may paraang maari nating gawin. Sino po dito sa inyo ang nakasubok nang mag-drugs? (Make some interactive discussion here. Let the crowd laugh and answer your question.) Madalas po natin marinig kapag ang isang tao ay hyper na hyper at aktibong aktibo ang tanong na: Nakadroga ka ba? O, ano na naman ang tinira mo? Sa mga barkadahan po, madalas natin ito maririnig. Sa panahon po ngayon ang salitang droga ay naging karaniwang salita na lamang. Ginagamit natin ang salitang droga o bawal na gamot na para bang ito’y ordinaryong isyu na lamang. Kunsabagay, tama po tayo sa isang banda. Ang usapin sa droga ay usaping napakatagal na nating pinaguusapan subalit hindi natin makita ang solusyon. Kung titingnan natin ang isyu, parang dead end. Darating ang halalan, may tatayo at magsasabi susugpuin ang droga, may mga organisasyong bubuuin para sugpuin ang droga, may mga seminars at symposium na gagawin para maging aware ang mga tao tungkol dito. Tama po ba yun? Maluluklok sa posisyon at malilimutan ang naipangako nang nagdaang halalan. Ngayon pong gabi, mayroon po akng isang layunin at sana ang mensaheng ito ay makatulong sa......

The Great Garbage Patch

...The Great Pacific Garbage Patch College Writing August 10, 2009 Using our oceans as garbage dumps has had negative effects on both sea life and the environment. Imagine walking by the beach in Carlsbad, California and dropping the cap from your soda bottle; as you reach to pick it up, a wave comes and sweeps it from your grasp. Three years later that cap is part of a floating island of debris in the North Pacific Ocean, that some estimate to be twice the size of Texas. Humans are having a devastating impact on the earth’s oceans. Billions of tons of recyclables have found their way to the middle of the ocean. Many studies regarding the impact of plastics on the environment have been done, yet little has been done to understand what devastating effects this will have on our environment in the future. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is one of the largest trash vortexes known to researchers. It is interesting to know that, currently, more than 60 billion tons of plastic are produced each year, and less than 5% of that is ever recycled. (Walsh) Plastic bags, bottles, toys, sun glasses and even shoes can be found floating in this giant mass of garbage. It is located in the remote waters between California and Hawaii, does not have distinct boundaries and varies in length and location throughout the year. This area moves seasonally between 23° and 37° N latitude. (NOS) Ocean currents grab the garbage and take it out to sea. It accumulates in different places......

Garbage Can Model

...A Garbage Can Model of Organizational Choice Organized anarchies are organizations characterized by problematic preferences, unclear technology, and fluid participation. These are organizations-or decision situations-characterized by three general properties. 1) Problematic preferences: In the organization it is difficult to impute a set of preferences to the decision situation that satisfies the standard consistency requirements for a theory of choice. The organization operates on the basis of a variety of inconsistent and ill-defined references. It discovers preferences through action more than it acts on the basis of preferences. 2) Unclear Technology: Although the organization manages to survive and even produce, its own processes are not understood by its members. It operates on the basis of simple trial-and-error procedures, the residue of learning from the accidents of past experience, and pragmatic inventions of necessity. 3) Fluid Participation: Participants vary in the amount of time and effort they devote to different domains; involvement varies from one time to another. As a result, the boundaries of the organization are uncertain and changing; the audiences and decision makers for any particular kind of choice change capriciously. They are particularly conspicuous in public, educational, and illegitimate organizations. To build on current behavioural theories of organizations in order to accommodate the concept of organized anarchy, two......
