The threat of nuclear weapons maintains world peace. Nuclear power provides cheap and clean energy.
The benefit of nuclear technology far outweight the disadvantages.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In our world today, nuclear technology has become one of the top publics topic being discussed in the mass media. It has become part of life in many nations. However there are some question such as :
“ If it is advancing our world or destroy it?”
Besides the advantages, it aslo has drawbacks and it depends on the people who use to determine it is a force for good or evil.
We can clearly see the benefits nuclear power brings to us. While the cost of fuel is increasing everday and other energy sources such as coal and oil are seemingly being used up, nuclear power is a good choice. It is quicker, cleaner and cheaper to produce. Nuclear power does not pollute the air and enviroment as much as coal and oil plants do. Nuclear power plants could still produce electricity after coal and oil become scarce. They need less fuel than ones that burn fossil fuel. Presently, nuclear energy provides for approximately 16% of the world’s electricity. Never the less, it aslo has disadvantages. The effect of radiation causes heath problems, can be very dangerous to living things. Hamful radiation has had negative affects on people and animals that have included deformation, disease and even death. Moreover, nuclear energy is also non-renewable source of energy. The use of non-renewable energy is a major concern and has a huge disadvantages. There are another form of nuclear technology we concern which is nuclear weapons. Their bad sides outweight the benefits. Eventhough the threat of them is enough to stop wars breaking out and they can end wars immediately, nuclear weapons is extremely destructive. In addition, they are too expensive so that only very rich countries can afford…...

Is Globalisation Good or Bad

...Globalisation is the process by which the world is becoming increasingly interconnected as a result of massively increased trade and cultural exchange. It’s the way goods, companies, information, jobs and fashion are flowing more easily around the world, which has increased the production of goods and services.

It begins with my most memorably good experience and moves to my most memorably unpleasant experience. I then compare the two to further illustrate the difference in the two. Next we examine in further detail the reasons one made me feel good and one made me feel uncomfortable. Most Memorable Experience My best experience as of late with a sales person was when I went to buy tires at Pep Boys. The sales person made the experience a pleasure. I went in with an idea of the style, type, and purpose I needed the tires to be able to accomplish. When I talked to the sales associate he listened to me and put together options of tires the met and exceeded my requirements, weather they were in the store of from another company. He explained the differences in the tires and how they were quality rated and ranked the according to best suited and price. We discussed the options and he even tried to get a lower price online just to make sure he was not over charging me. It shows that he was looking out for the customer and portraying the company in a good way by insuring loyal customers that feel like they are being taken care of both at the start of the sale and......

Good Money After Bad

...Weekes (SW), a venture capital firm based in Palo Alto and specialised in Medical instrument industry. Harbinson joined the company 6 months ago and is responsible for covering the $600,000 investment (out of a $100m fund) in Seven Peaks Technologies (SP), a company that has developed an innovative cauterizer used for electro surgery. Jack Brandon, the founder of SP, has developed a new cauterizer that is faster and more reliable than currently available technologies. Its main feature is that it does not stick to tissues during the cauterizing process, contrary to other similar products available in the market. Brandon has invested $65k of his own money in the development of the product before he approached SW to raise capital. The product received good feedback from surgeons and got the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approval for launch in the market. Nevertheless, the product’s sales have been disappointing. The life duration of the product is too long; consequently there is no opportunity for reordering the product and distributors are not willing to market it as the sales are not recurring. As a result, Brandon wants to develop a new product. He thinks there is a demand for new electrosurgical forceps that would use the same technology used in the cauterizer. The advantage of the forceps market is that surgeons use between 6 and 8 of them in every surgery. Thus the addressable market is much bigger. The product development would take less than a year including......

Good or Bad

...There are many different thoughts that may come to mind when thinking of present day youth football leagues. A person from another state may think of kids building teamwork skills and their physical abilities, while a person from Texas may think of the gridiron, violent games expressed between these eight and nine year old players. Stefan Fatsis’s article “Rich Kids Are Soft, Poor Kids Need to be Together Up” uncovers the real, explicit experience these kids receive and how it affects them and their community, good or bad. In order to evaluate Fatsis’s article thoroughly, it is important to consider the use of rhetorical strategies and structure. One of the claims Fatsis makes is the “violent imagery” created in the coach’s speeches and the use of their vulgar language around the young players. The author uses the Esquire Network series, Friday Night Tykes (FNT) as his illustration to his readers, assuming the reader has watched the show. He uses the example “You have the opportunity, today, to rip their heads off and let them bleed” (pr.1) from the show, to represent the relationship being expressed between the coaches and players. He assumes he is showing his pathos at this point in the article and that attention of the readers is being grabbed. Another point of the article’s structure and stance involves the coach’s perspective between positive adult leadership and their vulgar, negative style on the field. One specific coach from the Outlaws explains how parents......

Good Boss in Bad Economy

...Boss Good in a Bad Economy By RoBeRt I. Sutton ■ ■ ■ ■ How to Be a 130 Harvard Business Review | June 2009 | hbr.org Serge Bloch T hese are tough times for every boss I know. Fear and paranoia are running wild, not just in financial markets but in workplaces, too. A few weeks back a weary executive at a professional services firm told me how painful it had been to lay off 10% of his people and how he was struggling to comfort and inspire those who remained. When I asked a mutual friend, the CEO of a manufacturing firm, to “show some love” to this distressed executive, he jumped in to help – but admitted that he was wrestling with his own demons, having just implemented a 20% workforce reduction. It was not a coincidence to find two friends in such similar straits; few organizations seem to have avoided them.

Aerosols Good or Bad

...Aerosols Good or Bad? There is a wide misconception that aerosols are bad for the environment and contribute to the depletion of the ozone. Aerosol (derived more or less from “air-solid”) is technically just the suspension of fine particles, such as solids or liquid droplets, in a gas. As such, clouds, smog, smoke, air born dust, etc. are all aerosols. About 90% of all aerosols are naturally produced . They can either be directly emitted into the atmosphere (primary aerosol like dust, sea salt and black carbon), or they can be formed in the atmosphere by condensation (secondary inorganic aerosol such as sulfates, nitrates and ammonium). Aerosols are argued to be cooling the surface of the earth. This is relevant because the effects of aerosols may have beneficial or possibly dire consequences. Aerosols play a large role in cooling the surface of the earth, counteracting global warming, medicine, and therefore nothing should be done to eliminate them. Many types of aerosols have a cooling effect on the Earth, such as the aerosols produced from the burning of fossil fuels. The aerosols produced from this are known to partially counteract global warming caused by various greenhouse gases. In order to say that aerosols cool the earth, we have to explore the different theories on how they are said to do so. According to Jeffrey T. Kiehl in "Solving the Aerosol Puzzle" the burning of fossil fuels and biomass (in natural and man-made fires) leads to the production of......

Nuclear Technology

...The treat of nuclear weapons maintains world peace. Nuclear power provides cheap and clean energy. The benefits of nuclear technology far outweigh the disadvantages. Do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer. It is a common knowledge that there is a need for alternative sources of energy due to external factors. Tat is why the use of nuclear technology has become a very debated topic in recent years. Some people argue that nuclear power does more good than harm. I cannot completely agree with this point of view because I’m still in two minds. On the one hand, there are valid arguments in favor of using nuclear energy. First of all, it does not have an impact on greenhouse effect because it provides electricity without producing large amount of carbon emissions. Moreover, atomic energy is inexpensive in comparison with fossil fuels. In addition to that, introducing nuclear technologies allows countries, which do not have the access to organic fuels to avoid dependence on foreign import of these minerals. On the other hand, there are extremely significant dangers that should be taken into consideration. Firstly, some countries can use nuclear technology as a means to develop nuclear weapons with terrorist aims. Secondly, there is no safe solution for disposing of hazardous waste. Furthermore, the risks of a catastrophic nuclear accident are considerable. In evidence, it will be enough to remember consequences of an accident in Chernobyl and Japan. In...

Whistle Blowing - Good or Bad

...who know about them are afraid of retaliation. As our livelihoods, and often our health insurance, are dependent on our jobs, the fear of losing a job is pervasive. Whenever the law provides a remedy for victims of retaliation, it encourages employees to come forward with evidence that will make our world safer, healthier and more just. Many, if not most, of the laws that protect workers, such as antidiscrimination laws, wage and hour protections, and health and safety laws, also make it illegal for an employer to retaliate against someone who engages in conduct which the law protects. Many laws protecting the public at large, such as environmental laws, taxpayer-funded programs, and government regulation of certain industries, such as nuclear power, trucking, and airlines, protect employees who disclose information that the employee reasonably believes is evidence of illegality, gross waste or fraud, gross mismanagement, abuse of power, or a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety. History of Whistleblowing The origins of whistleblowing go back well over a century. In fact, whistleblowing initially arose not in connection with corporate malfeasance, but in the federal government’s False Claims Act. The False Claims Act’s influence (1863) The False Claims Act was established to offer incentives to individuals who reported companies or individuals defrauding the government. It was introduced by Abraham Lincoln in 1863 to target sales of fake......

The Good, Bad, and Ugly

...The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Tameka Gunn Dr. Aristotle Mante PAD 500 October 27, 2014 Abstract Education continues to be an issue that has the President of the United States ready to take action. Over time we have been looking at ways to improve our educational system to compare to other school systems around the world. The George W. Bush administration implemented the No Child Left Behind initiative, which is specific to Title I schools and geared to students with learning disabilities. In the pages to follow I will discuss the issue of Education and which of the four public policies supports this issue. Along with policy modifications that would positively and negatively impact the issue of Education. There will also be discussion around the relationship between government and businesses, and the role they play in the Education issue. President Barack Obama is taking a stand on Education for all Americans. While looking at the issues that are covered on the White House website, Education is one that speaks to the Constituent Public Policy type. Constituent Policies (Lowi, 1972, p.300) are intended to benefit the public generally or to serve the government. With regards to the issue of education, President Obama made it clear on the White House Website, that education is the key to obtaining future jobs. This issue will be beneficial to every child in America, because this starts with Early Childhood learning. This also......

...second time? HBR CASE STUDY Good Money After Bad? by John W. Mullins From a rocky perch overlooking the sparkling lights of San Francisco, Christian Harbinson gazed across the bay to the hills above Sausalito. "There's nothing like a vigorous hike;' he thought, "to clear the mind before a crucial meeting:' It was a mild March evening, and the 35-year-old venture capitalist was reflecting on the recommendation he would have to make to his firm's investment committee the next morning about Jack Brandon's young company, Seven Peaks Technologies. Seven Peaks had developed an innovative device for cauterizing blood vessels during electrosurgery, and although the feedback from surgeons had been excellent, sales had been slow. The Palo Alto-based venture capital firm where Harbinson worked, Scharfstein Weekes, had invested $600,000 in Seven Peaks from its newly raised second fund of $100 million. SW's current investment strategy focused on early-stage medical technology companies, and Seven Peaks was a typical investment for the firm, which liked to get in on promising ideas modestly and then follow with additional rounds of capital after technological and market milestones had been met. The $600,000 was nearly gone; Harbinson and his colleagues had to decide whether to put more into the struggling company. Seven Peaks was looking for another $400,000 to develop a second product based on its proprietary technology, which enabled surgical......

Good Listener and Bad Listener

...Good Listener: 1. Me and my friend was chatting in one of the café in Lippo Plaza Medan It happened not long ago, maybe around 2 or 3 weeks ago. Me and my friend, Sheryl, were having lunch together in one of the café in Lippo Plaza before we watched a film in Cinemaxx. Actually, she just went back from Singapore. I started by asking how she did in Singapore. She just sighed and answered that it was tiring. And then, she asked me back the question that I asked earlier. I just answered that studying in Medan is easier than in Singapore. Because I’m a talkative person, I continued by telling her how I studied in UPH. When I was telling the story, she kept her eye contact with me and sat upright posture. From the way she sat and watching me, it made me know that she was listening to what I was saying. During that time, the food came late, which made me to tell more stories to her because I hadn’t met her for a year. She had not even checked her phone or looked at her watch which made me sure that she was really listening to me. She even gave me advices when I told her that I had problems with my group assignment members. When I told her my sad story, she also felt sad which clearly showed in her facial expression and when I told her some of the jokes, she also became happy and showed me a happy smile and laugh in her face. By giving advices, smile and laugh, it made me so happy that she was listening and understanding of what I said. She really is a good listener. 2.......
