Sewerage problem in Dhaka City

Introduction

Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated cities of the South-Asian countries. Due to rapid urbanization process, the city is emerging as a mega-city and this trend generates numerous economic and social externalities. I want to work on this topic because this problem is related to our daily life, and we are the victim of this problem especially in the rainy season. Drains and cannels are stuck for several days and due to the drainage congestion Dhaka metropolitan area has experienced water logging for last couple of years. Even a little rain causes a serious problem for certain areas, so that parts of Dhaka are inundated for several days. It makes difficult to move for the passer by.

Solution which comes out will help us from this topic. To find out inherent causes of water logging in Dhaka City, a field survey as a questionnaire survey, informal interviews from the people living in different parts of Dhaka City.

PRESENT SITUATION

The capital city of Bangladesh has become one of the populous Mega City in the world, in recent year’s sewerage and water logging has become as a common problem of the city like water pollution, traffic congestion, air and noise pollution, solid waste disposal, black smoke etc.
Unplanned capital development activities and growth of habitation due to rapid population growth are causing encroachment on retention areas and natural drainage paths with little or no care of natural drainage system. Excessive rainfall, inadequate drainage sections, conventional drainage system with low capacity and gravity, natural siltation, absence of inlets and outlets, indefinite drainage outlets, lack of proper maintenance of existing drainage system, and over and above disposal of solid waste into the drains and drainage…...

...battles against competitors. Even more telling, the suicides at China's manufacturing behemoth, Foxconn, have created the uncomfortable impression that “cool” products like the iPad are being produced by what amounts to economic slave labor. This is decidedly “uncool” and not the image that Apple wants to portray. Zeal: Zeal is perhaps the virtue most-embedded at Apple’s core and is represented by their continuous innovation and excitement in terms of products and customer experience. By emphasizing Corporation Social Responsibility, Tim Cook would need to bring that famous Apple zeal to social issues, offering an innovative approach, as competitor Google did, when it famously began encouraging its employees to spend 20% of their time on their own projects. It goes without saying that Cook and Apple are standing at a precipice. Product innovations can be short-lived. A serious Corporation Social Responsibility strategy could quietly shift Apple’s sales pitch from personal charisma to the great public good, doing Apple good in the long term. The leaders of innovative organizations that undergo the uncertainty that comes with change, would be wise to promote both integrity and empathy internally, thus ensuring that zeal continues to inspire consumers throughout their tenure and for years to come...

...pay. Executive pay is an important part of corporate governance, and is often determined by a company's board of directors. Types of compensation There are six basic tools of compensation or remuneration. * salary * short term incentives (STIs), sometimes known as bonuses * long-term incentive plans (LTIP) * employee benefits * paid expenses (perquisites) * insurance In a modern corporation, the CEO and other top executives are often paid salary plus short-term incentives or bonuses. This combination is referred to as Total Cash Compensation (TCC). Short-term incentives usually are formula-driven and have some performance criteria attached depending on the role of the executive. For example, the Sales Director's performance related bonus may be based on incremental revenue growth turnover; a CEO's could be based on incremental profitability and revenue growth. Bonuses are after-the-fact (not formula driven) and often discretionary. Executives may also be compensated with a mixture of cash and shares of the company which are almost always subject to vesting restrictions (a long-term incentive). To be considered a long-term incentive the measurement period must be in excess of one year (3–5 years is common). The vesting term refers to the period of time before the recipient has the right to transfer shares and realize value. Vesting can be based on time, performance or both. For example a CEO might get 1 million in cash, and 1 million in company......

Brydie Professor Jennifer Merritt Systems Analysis and Development December 18, 2013 Tony’s Chips has recently been acquired by a new independent company and the organization leaders have decided to move the current website, which is hosted externally, to an internal host. The company wants the website to be redesigned so that after migration, customers will then be able to make orders online. The company’s leadership would also like to have a disaster recovery solution in place in case the main site goes down. The overall objective of the project is to plan and design a new effective platform to host the website and to efficiently transfer the current website with minimal downtime. In order to accomplish successful migration of the current website, the five phases of the systems development life cycle will be utilized. The five phases are: systems planning, systems analysis, systems design, systems implementation, and finally, systems support and security (Shelly & Rosenblatt 2012). The first phase in the website migration project will be to become familiarized with the business process and identify the objectives of the project.

...Europe (where it was previously fourth), Japan (previously third) and Latin America. Merger activity took place while pharmaceutical companies were seeking economies of scale in research and development at the same time that associated marketing costs of new products were growing quickly. However, little evidence had emerged to suggest bigger research programmes were better (least of all after a merger) to replenish the pipeline. Indeed, the Pharmacia deal put Pfizer way ahead of GlaxoSmithKline at a time when many questioned the ability of the latter to generate and sustain revenue growth. GlaxoSmithKline was struggling with patent expiries and a lack of new drugs. There were some 125 promising compounds in the pipeline but in the short term the company was being forced to increase the number of licensing agreements. In fact, between 1998 and 2003, GlaxoSmith-Kline had bought licences to market 40 drugs from other companies (effectively doubling the number of licences acquired between 1988 and 1997). This compared negatively with the average for the industry’s top 20 companies which was 31. Not surprisingly in the second quarter of 2003 GlaxoSmithKline’s share price slumped to its lowest level in five years (when considering pre-merger stock market valuations or its lowest ever as a standalone company). See Exhibit 1. GROWTH THROUGH AMALGAMATION The companies giving birth to GlaxoSmithKline themselves resulted from amalgamation. On the one hand, SmithKline Beecham was......

However, we felt the two sources we picked, best fitted our product and would aid us more in finding how to give the customer more value, at the same time as speaking about being “green”. 2.0 Macro-environmental Impact No matter how productive, efficient and determined our company is, there will always be larger forces that influence the business. These forces all together are known as the macro-environment. The macro-environment is split into six categories of forces: demography, economics, natural, technological, political and cultural. Demographic Forces The demographic force is controlled by human populations in terms of different subgroups; size, age, gender, occupation, location and density. The reason this is of such importance to the marketer is because it involves statistics on the consumer community. At the end of the day, the consumer is the most valuable aspect to the business because they interact with the service. A huge positive advantage for our company in the near future will be the demographic force because both male and female baby boomers, within the range of 40-50 years of age are getting older. According to StatsCan (2011), the majority of the population (male & female) is between the ages of 40-50 years of age. This baby-boom generation, amounting to around 6.5 million in 2011(21% of total Canadian population) is going to......

The company has been in business for the past 30 years and has built a solid foundation upon quality above the rest. ABC employs 150 laborers at $8.50 per hour, all healthcare benefits are 50% employee paid, and the company requires 10 hour mandatory work days at 6 day intervals with 1 day of rest in between. In the way of other perks and benefits the company does offer an all inclusive Paid Time Off (PTO) plan that works on an accrual basis of 2 days per month. The facility is located in a rural location where most workers are living below the poverty line and do not typically have cars to get to work. In April of 2009 ABC began to experience great distress; their quality ratings dropped tremendously and complaints from end users had increased dramatically as recalls skyrocketed due to faulty materials at the hand of ABC. The company was losing money on materials and labor to replace the defective parts. After being threatened with a heavy lawsuit over a fatal car accident Senior Management at ABC decided to take action. Dan Reuthers, CEO of the company began to take note as productivity paled in comparison to......
