Ways to Stop Child Poverty
“Child Poverty”

Each country has its own definition of the poverty line, or the minimum annual income necessary for an adequate standard of living. In developed countries such as the United States, this is relatively high. However, for billions of other people around the world, living in poverty means living on an income of approximately one dollar a day. This condition affects not only adults, but the children in their care as well. More than half of the children living in developing countries have a severe deprivation of one basic human need and over one third of the children in these countries are living in conditions of absolute poverty in which basic human needs are not being met, including the need for adequate food, safe drinking water, sanitation facilities, health, shelter, education, information, and access to social services. The Millennium Development Goals articulated in 2000 by the United Nations address these issues with the hope of severely reducing poverty by the year 2015 (United Nations, 2006). However, although progress is being made toward meeting these goals in many areas, other areas still show little or no progress. Much more work is still needed. Poverty cannot be completely eradicated, as it largely caused by human factors. Over the past years there has been a lot of Poverty Alleviation Programs designed to break the cycle of poverty in many households and communities in the world. The result is remarkable, but there is still a lot to be done. Poverty alleviation involves the strategic use of tools such as education, economic development, health and income redistribution to improve the livelihoods of the world’s poorest by governments and internationally approved organizations. They also aim at removing social and legal barriers to income growth among the poor. Quality education empowers people to take…...

...1. Be able to identify and select sources of data and information 1.1 Discuss the nature of data and information Before actually looking at the nature of data and information it is important to note that information is a subset of data in that it has a use for the user; as the name implies it informs the user about some subject, but for another person without a use or understanding it is simply data. It is easy to lose the information in the enormous quantity of data available today from many sources especially the internet and additionally to take data presented electronically as being fact whereas in reality it bears little similarity to the truth. In earlier days going to the library and reading a book was a guarantee of receiving information pertinent to the time the book was written. Few, if any, factual books were printed without the information within, being verified by some body. Today on the internet a huge majority of the data presented is not verified and is very unreliable. There are many different types of data but fundamentally these can be reduced to two types: Quantitative: This is the easiest type of data to handle as it has a quantity associated to it be it weight, height, length, frequency, speed… All terms people immediately associate to and given a method the data will always produce the same result. Qualitative: This is a much more difficult data type to handle as it is subjective, which is the better for you, which is more colourful, who will......

...1. Business-level Strategy Walmart uses a combination strategy of cost leadership and differentiation. They provide a wider variety of products and services with the same or better quality at a price that is cheaper than their competitors can provide. Walmart concentrates on finding ways to lower their costs by constantly rethinking how to complete their primary and support activities to reduce costs still further while maintaining competitive levels of differentiation. Their successful supply chain management is an important way helping them to implement the cost leadership strategy. They has effective inbound logistics by using just-in-time inventory. And they have cut costs from outbound logistics by creating better fuel efficiency in their trucks, getting more pallets on a load, and decreasing empty miles driven by their trucks (Dess, 2012). Walmart also reduces costs by buying in large blocks. Technology plays a key role in Walmart’s supply chain too, it allows Walmart to accurately forecast demand, track and predict inventory levels, create highly efficient transportation routes, and manage customer relationships and service response logistics (Walmart's Keys to Successful Supply Chain Management, 2013). In conclusion, Walmart's successful overall cost leadership/differentiation strategy leads to high entry barriers for competitors. • Corporate-level Strategy The major reason behind the success of Walmart lies in the fact that the company believes and......

...Ivarsson 1 Victor Ivarsson English 100 – 19 Professor Fisher Essay 4 – draft one December 9, 2014 Intro: The world we live in today is far more globalized than that of our previous generation. Before social media and other instant forms of communication existed, people did not need to worry about speaking a different language or the way it was spoken. Dialects and accents had little meaning because of the barriers that surrounded each community prohibited the inhabitants of much interaction with people from other societies. Today however, people can speak with each other regardless of location, which emphasizes the importance of the power of language. The negative consequences that come from this is that those who do not master a language perfectly or differ from perfect speech are discriminated against in the general community. A phenomenon, which writer Gloria Anzaldúa, who wrote the article “How to Tame a Wild Tongue,” calls “Linguistic Terrorism.” According to her, linguistic terrorism negates not only the speaker, but also the experiences and culture behind that person (Anzaldúa). Thesis: Although language can be used as a tool of power, the use of faulty and imprecise language negates the speaker and causes negative consequences. Body 1, Tan: An accent is an example of imprecise English, which causes people to make negative or positive assumptions about the speaker based on the information that accent reveals. Example: In Amy Tan´s essay “Mother Tongue...

This amendment will improve workers’ protection against respirable silica dust while limiting the exposure to respirable crystalline silica. More than 600 lives annually will be saved, 900 or more cases of silicosis will be prevented, and net benefits of $7.7 billion per year will result. The final rule will also decrease lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in workers. This rule hopes to modernize worker protection in feasible and economical ways. About 4.6 million workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica. The rule consists of two standards: one written for construction and the other for general industry and maritime. Construction standards for most requirements have until June 23, 2017 and general industry and maritime have until June 23, 2018. 2) FTC Signs Memorandum of Understanding With Canadian Agency To Strengthen Cooperation on Do Not Call, Spam Enforcement In order to strengthen cross-border Do Not Call and anti-spam enforcement cooperation, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Canadian Radio-television and......

The Enron Business Failure 1.Doc

...The Enron Business Failure 1 The Enron Business Failure The Enron Business Failure 2 The Enron Business Failure The company selected for intense scrutiny on leadership failure and ultimate business catastrophe is Enron. Enron had a very rich history of success and innovation in the industrial market of energy production and delivery. An important note to identify, Enron was named “America’s Most Innovative Company” (Lordan, 2002) for six straight years. This title sheds a great deal of light on the success and adaptability that was projected during the lifetime of Enron. This analysis will carefully review and identify major key factors of deception that brought an end to what was once a possible trademark of American Pride. The main reasons or conventional wisdom that most people believe Enron failed was due to sloppy board oversight, critical deception in imaginative accounting, multiple occurrences in off-balance sheet financing and criminalist policies of the Chief Financial Officer. According to many leading experts in the field of the Enron collapse (Stewart, 2006) the above mentioned reasons for the collapse were merely consequences to actions rather than the actual causes that brought on these fatal occurrences. After much research and the most complex bankruptcy to date in the United States of America, the Enron Bankruptcy and failure is hinged on the premise that the company failed due to the intentional cover-up of aiming at the wrong financial......
