n our highly industrialized era there is a growing awareness about the excessive amounts of trash people producing. We are about to be flooded by different types of garbage if certain measures will not be taken. This essay will explore some causes of this and propose ways to solve the problem.

To begin with, different food producers decided that their products will be selling better if they will pack them in small-sized boxes and packets. These colorful and attractive packs go straight to the trashcan; the number of packs is growing along with the consuming growth.

More consuming produces more waste. Government and businesses encourage consuming because it leads to high profits and development of state economy. They are not interested in the situation there a person is going to use something for a long time. Society is being bombarded with commercials, pleading to buy, for instance, a new mobile phone; buying new things because throwing away old but good things.

The problem of garbage is very complicated. As we can see, government is not interested of reducing consuming. Thus, the responsibility has to be taken by individuals and non-governmental organizations. Certain laws, regulating the percentage of packaging material per ton of product should be established. Moreover, interesting programs, involving people to participate can be developed. For example, a bonus for not asking for a plastic bag in supermarkets or for buying extra large packs of food.

In addition, everyone should become concerned about the future of human beings and our planet. If we do not wish to be buried in rubbish, we should think twice before buying things we do not…...

Selective Collection of Rubbish in Russia as a Key to Welfare

...Selective collection of rubbish in Russia as a key to welfare (SLIDE 1) Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, I want to present you my report. The topic is “Selective collection of rubbish in Russia as a key to welfare”. (SLIDE 2) I want to attract your attention to an undoubtedly global problem of today’s fast-moving world. I am absolutely sure, that you’ll recognize yourselves in this common day-to-day situation. Just recall it: every day you hurry to work or to studies and don’t have spare time at all. As usual, you just take your keys, grab your bag and run out into the street. Then you throw your rubbish into the dustbin or even leave it at your entrance. So, the problem is successfully solved and nothing else detracts you from your daily routine. (SLIDE 3) Meanwhile, every day one person produces 2 kilos of rubbish. This fact means that Russia has to utilize about 300 000 tons of rubbish daily. Obviously, all the attempts to hide these endless rotting rubbish mountains seem at least ridiculous as we just don’t dispose of infinite space nor needed amount of incinerators (machines for waste burning). (SLIDE 4) As a result, keeping a dump in Russia is extremely profitable as it doesn’t require any great efforts or big sums of money as a fixed capital. If you want to become a dump owner, you just need to buy a forged license (for the transportation, processing, storage, disposal of waste and waste destruction) and a godforsaken plot of land. Then you have to buy......

This Land Is Your Land, Incomplete

...This Land is Your Land, Incomplete The poem “This Land is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie is originally a seven stanza poem that is often cut short in the recorded versions known to many. The poem’s main element is imagery of America’s landmarks to evict an emotion out of the reader. The first four stanzas have a much more celebratory tone compared to the final three. In the recorded versions, the last three stanzas are cut out, so as to not dampen the joyful tone of the song. The change in tone of the poem is easily broken into two parts. The first part makes the reader feel proud of America by describing some of its national symbols and declaring in the last lines of each stanza. “This land was made for you and me.” (4,8,12,16.) These first four stanzas have a common theme of Guthrie taking in America’s beauty while feeling blessed to be in its land. Guthrie describes the sights as “sparkling sands” (10.) and “golden valley” (7.) to make the reader feel pleased and almost proud of our land. The first four stanzas have been sung and used to celebrate America in most patriotic settings. The last part of the poem has been left out of the mainstream recorded versions and few realize that there are three more stanzas in the original. The last three stanzas take a different tone by describing the land of America in a darker way than the first four. This tone changes the main line “This land was made for you and me” from a joyful voice to a sadder, matter of fact,......

Land Acquisition

...Draft for Discussion THE DRAFT NATIONAL LAND ACQUISITION AND REHABILITATION & RESETTLEMENT BILL, 2011 I. Foreword II. Overview of the Draft Bill III. Text of the Draft Bill Ministry of Rural Development Government of India July 27th 2011 I. FOREWORD Infrastructure across the country must expand rapidly. Industrialisation, especially based on manufacturing has also to accelerate. Urbanisation is inevitable. Land is an essential requirement for all these processes. Government also needs to acquire land for a variety of public purposes. In every case, land acquisition must take place in a manner that fully protects the interests of land-owners and also of those whose livelihoods depend on the land being acquired. Under our Constitution, land is a State subject but land acquisition is a Concurrent subject. So far, the basic law governing the land acquisition process has been the Land Acquisition Act, 1894. Although it has been amended from time to time, it is painfully evident that the basic law has become archaic. Land markets in India are imperfect. There is asymmetry of power (and information) between those wanting to acquire the land and those whose lands are being acquired. That is why there has to be a role for the government to put in place a transparent and flexible set of rules and regulations and to ensure its enforcement. Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) need to be seen necessarily as two sides of the same coin. R&R must always, in......

Tort Law, Trespass to Land

...Tort Law – Trespass to Land Tort Law - Definition A body of rights, obligations, and remedies that is applied by courts in civil proceedings to provide relief for persons who have suffered harm from the wrongful acts of others. The person who sustains injury or suffers pecuniary damage as the result of tortious conduct is known as the plaintiff, and the person who is responsible for inflicting the injury and incurs liability for the damage is known as the defendant or tortfeasor. Trespass to Land –Definition In modern law the word trespass is used most commonly to describe the intentional and wrongful invasion of another's real property. An action for trespass can be maintained by the owner or anyone else who has a lawful right to occupy the real property, such as the owner of an apartment building, a tenant, or a member of the tenant's family. The action can be maintained against anyone who interferes with the right of ownership or possession, whether the invasion is by a person or by something that a person has set in motion. For example, a hunter who enters fields where hunting is forbidden is a trespasser, and so is a company that throws rocks onto neighboring land when it is blasting. Every unlawful entry onto another's property is trespass, even if no harm is done to the property. A person who has a right to come onto the land may become a trespasser by committing wrongful acts after entry. For example, a mail carrier has a privilege to walk up the......

Rubbish Problem

...Rubbish problem Nowadays the amount of rubbish produced on a daily basis is increasing dramatically. What are the reasons for this, and what can government do to help reduce the amount of rubbish produced? The amount of garbage we produce is rising at an alarming rate. This essay will examine the reasons for this increase, and make suggestions about possible government action to address this problem. There are a number of reasons why we are producing more and more rubbish nowadays. First of all, the products we buy in the shops tend to be pre-wrapped in plastic or polystyrene containers. This is particularly true for processed foods, which are becoming increasingly popular. As soon as we arrive home from the shops we tend to throw this packaging away. Another cause for this increasing mountain of garbage is the fact that there are more people living on the planet nowadays. As the population continues to grow, so will the piles of rubbish. There are some measures which governments could take, however, to help reduce the problem of rubbish. First of all, there is the concept of the three “R”s: reduce, re-use and recycle. In short, that means we should use less packaging of goods to reduce the amount of waste. Furthermore, we should use the plastic bags which we get from the shops again and again, rather than throw them away as soon as we get home. Finally, we should recycle materials such as glass, paper, aluminium and so on so that the materials can be used again to......

Land Pollution & Sanitary Landfill

...What is Land Pollution? Land pollution can be defined as acts occurring on an area resulting in colour change, fertility, and erosion. It is caused by waste in the form of liquid or solid. Introduction to Land Pollution The presence of chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment Results in a change of the soil quality Affects the normal use of the soil Endangering public health and the living environment Causes of LAND POLLUTION 1. By poor agricultural practices * Excessive use of fertilizers & pesticides. Farmers use fertilizers and pesticides in order to kill pests and have an abundant harvest, but some people use excessive amounts of fertilizers and pesticide, which causes pollution * Excessive farming, construction, overgrazing, burning of grass cover and deforestation 2. By mineral exploitation * This includes piles of coal refuse and heaps of slag and underground debris. Mining and forestry activities that clear the land surfaces (clear cutting) and use 'skid trails' often leave the land not restored. The surface is exposed to erosion which destroys the quality of the land. Additionally, iron and other chemicals such as copper, mercury and lead from mining practices leach into the soil, polluting it and leaving it exposed to water bodies as well. 3. By indiscriminate disposal of urban wastes. * The waste materials that cause land pollution are broadly classified as...

Rubbish Boys

...After the Rubbish Boys case, I discovered that using a franchising model to grow business seems to be a good option for “King” type entrepreneurs. Brian is able to keep 100% of the company all the way because the franchising model helps minimize the capital he needs to scale the business, therefore eliminates the need to give away equity for money. In addition, the one-sided franchising contract gives the franchisor security to hand the operation to another entrepreneur without worrying losing equity and control. However, I think that Brain’s success was a bit of luck. Franchisees join a franchise business because they want to own a business of which the business model has been proven and tested, the revenue and required investment are more or less known, and ideally the existing brand equity can be leveraged to get the new franchise up to speed fairly quickly. In Rubbish Boy’s case, the company didn’t meet any of these criteria. Brian had just decided to switch from the student franchising model to a professional one, with the new pricing and operations untested; it was unclear how much the franchisee will earn and invest; and there was certainly no brand recognition at all. That was probably why Brian couldn’t find any franchisee to start with and had to turn to an internal management team member. That being said, every franchisor needs a “pilot franchisee” to start with in order to successfully set up his/her own franchise model, and Paul Guy was Brian’s pilot......

...LAND NAVIGATION Marginal Information Map Instructions Top Margin series name -is found in the upper margin. It usually includes a group of similar maps at the same scale or the same sheet lines designed to cover a particular geographical area. The name given a series is that of the most prominent areas. edition number- represents the age of the map in relation to other editions of the same map and the agency responsible for its production. Scale- note indicates the relative value of distance on the map compared to distance on the ground. A map with the scale of 1:50,000 means that 1 inch on the map equals 50,000 inches on the ground or 1,270 meters. Different map scales indicate different degrees of topographical detail. As the ratio increases, map detail decreases. For example, a map with a scale of 1:25,000 is more detailed than a map with a scale of 1:50,000. With a ratio of 1:25,000, 1 inch on the map equals less area on the ground than a map with ratio of 1:50,000. series number- is a sequence reference expressed either as a four-digit number (1125) or as a letter followed by a three or four-digit number (M556; N3341).

Lands Records

...INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND The lands registration record in Nyeri has been used for quite some time now. In the past (colonial era), land owners needed to prove their ownership of a particular piece of land back to the earliest grant of land by the crown to its first owner. The documents relating to transactions with the land were known as title deeds. This event could have occurred years prior and could have been intervened by changes in the land’s ownership. A person’s ownership over land could also be challenged thus causing great legal expense to land owners and hindering development. The lands registration department has taken several steps and initiatives to improve on the standards of its field. The research made will ensure that the lands boundaries will clearly be stated and defined. The land owners are also demanding for quality in the services offered. Studies indicate that the Kenyan government is concerned about the preparation of management trainees by the educational system, with regards to the land registration records. There are indications of how the recruitment of quality management trainees has been an issue of paramount importance to the government in order to achieve vision 2030. 1.2 ORGANIZATION The system will be used by Nyeri Land Registration and Records department. The organization is located in central Kenya. Currently the department relies mostly on manual task due to inadequate resources and technical knowhow. Nyeri Land Registration and......

Land Price

...relationship between house price and land price. The author will elaborate on the relationship mentioned above from the following two aspects. From the aspect of microeconomics, due to some reasons like changing jobs to other cities or deciding to change the living environment, people may buy a new house to start their new lives. Some individuals like to take convenience and quality of environment into consideration, and they may prefer some more comfortable places that have a good public transport service or short distance to CBD (Central Business District). According to the study of the relationship between New York vacant land price and location by Atack (1998, pp.151-172), the author concludes that the distance from city hall and land price have an inverse relationship. Thus, if they want to choose a place that may provide many conveniences, they cannot probably afford the house because of the high price of land. Then they may be always likely to regard land price as a sole determinant as land and house have a strong relationship regardless of other factors. Therefore, a concept may be shaped in their minds that the higher land price is, the higher the house price may be. Likewise, from the perspective of the macroeconomics, some governments may take some measures to lower land price in order to lower real estate price. For instance, the Chinese government released a document to change the land regulation in order to contain the increasingly high land prices as the......

Land Rover

... Land Rover Case Study Land Rover Land Rover North America had just witnessed success in the US market with the launch of their globally successful model The Land Rover Discovery. By the mid 80’s the already successful luxury car maker had experienced an onslaught from the Japanese car firms that were capturing the third world market due to a number of issues faced by the Rover Group. The Japanese firms had identified a gap in the market and were producing SUVs that communicated better with the leisure market which comprised not only of affluent childless adults that looked at these vehicles as a symbol of exclusivity but also the more traditional family sector that also wanted safety and comfort in their cars. Land Rover decided to address the issue by launching their Discovery model to recapture the lost market. Land Rover Discovery proved to be a success in UK. For the US launch of Land Rover Discovery, we need to look at the data given in the exhibits before deciding on positioning. According to the data given in Exhibit 8, the SUV intenders across the age, sex and marital status have similar requirements. They rate Quality, Safety and Performance over economics or status. Coming to exhibit 13, it is clear that the consumer perception of Land Rover Discovery......

The Waste Land

...The Waste land of T.S.Eliot is considered as a full of imagery poet composed after world war. The poet is divided into five sections but through section 1: the burial of the dead, readers could realize fully about imagery and the role of speakers. In the first section, Eliot conveyed pictures from views of different speakers which are riddled from gothic imagery. This part of The Waste Land can be seen as a modified dramatic monologue. The four speakers in this part are frantic in their need to speak, to find an audience, but they find themselves surrounded by dead people and thwarted by outside circumstances, like wars. Because the parts are so short and the situations so confusing, the effect is not one of an overwhelming impression of a single character; instead, the reader is left with the feeling of being trapped in a crowd, unable to find a familiar face. It is made up of four vignettes, each seemingly from the perspective of different speakers. The first is an autobiographical snippet from the childhood of an aristocratic woman, in which she recalls sledding and claims that she is German, not Russian. The woman mixes a meditation on the seasons with remarks on the barren state of her current existence ("I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter"). The second is a prophetic, apocalyptic invitation to journey into a desert waste where the speaker will show the reader "something different from either / Your shadow at morning striding behind......

...resolve this problem and it will be more expensive and the money will use to resolve this problem will came from the budget of the government and it will affect the economic status of the government. The population of a place increases in just a short time. However, the space in a place remains the same. When the houses in a neighbourhood are overcrowded, it shows that the population in the area is too big. This is a common sight in a city. Many poor people build shanties along creeks, in dumpsites or along railroads. More than one family may share a shanty. Overpopulation in a community can limit space for housing. And in this kind of scenario we will saw that overpopulation has a bigger factor not only in food and water but also in land space. Food shortage, overcrowding, poor water supply and environmental pollution affect the health of the people, particularly the children. Poor environmental sanitation is a major cause of diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid and cholera. Dirty insects such as flies and cockroaches contaminate food with disease-causing germs. Many children who play barefoot in dirty areas and do not wash their hands before eating become infected with worms. Some respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis, pneumonia and bronchitis are worsened by polluted air. Communicable diseases can easily be transferred from one person to another in an overpopulated area. This is the some salient features that cause of overpopulation that affect the economy of...
