Environmental Economic Impact of Pollution in the Chesapeake Bay the Chesapeake Bay is the nation's largest estuary with six major tributaries, the James, the Potomac, the Susquehanna, the Patuxent, the York, and the Rappahannock Rivers, feeding into the bay from various locations in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia. These areas depend on the Bay as both an environmental and an economic resource. Throughout the last 15 years the Chesapeake Bay has suffered from elevated levels of pollution. Nitrogen and phosphorous from wastewater treatment plants, farmland, air pollution, and development all lead to reduced water clarity and lowered oxygen levels, which harm fish, crabs, oysters and underwater grasses. There are other types of pollution in the bay such as toxic chemicals, but because nutrient pollution is the most significant and most widespread in the Bay its effects are the most harmful to fisheries. Nitrogen and phosphorous fuel algal more...

Many have pondered upon the- meaning of abortion. The argument being that every child born should be wanted and others who believe that every child conceived should be born. This has been a controversial topic for years. Many people want to be able to decide the destiny of other Pro-life activists carry a strong argument and continue to push their beliefs. They feel so strongly about these beliefs that violence has broken out in some known instances. Pro-choice activists, on the other hand, also carry very strong points. They believe that the child inside them is their property and its life doesn't until birth. In 1973, the United States Supreme Court decided that as long as the baby lived in the womb, he or she would be the property of the mother. Because of this decision almost every third baby conceived in America is killed by abortion, over one and more...

The Color Red The beauty that addresses itself to the eyes is only the spell of the moment; the eye of the body is not always that of the soul. George Sand hit the nail right on the head when he said this in 1872. Appearance versus reality has been a central theme in many American creative works including the film American Beauty. American Beauty is a film that delves into your typical, middle-class suburban American home and slowly uncovers all of the abnormalities that lie within. The family is portrayed as normal but as the films tag line suggests look closer then it is possible to fully understand the implications that takes place in this seemingly happy home. The film is masterfully directed by the famous theater director Sam Mendes and encompasses a great number of cinematic techniques that appear fresh and exciting. Critics have mentioned many of these more...

Roman Folanski incorporated religious themes into his films, "A Knife in the Water" and "Rosemary's Baby". "A Knife in the Water" contains some Christian imagery that is not incorporated into the plot or theme of the film. In contrast, the central theme of "Rosemary's Baby" is religion. I believe this difference illustrates the fact that Polanski desired to make a radical religious film but was unable to do so until he came to The United States. "A Knife in the Water" is a film about money and power. A wealthy couple picks up a young hitchhiker and invites him to spend the day with them on their yacht. Throughout the day the older man, Andre, and the boy struggle for power. The struggle erids with Andre thinking he has killed the boy, and the boy sleeping with Andre's wife. Christian imagery, and illusions to Biblical mythology, is subtly woven into more...

Multinational companies are giant firms with their origin in one country, but their operations extending beyond the Boundaries of mat nation. For reasons of marketing, financial and technological superiority, these multinationals are generally considered as a sine quarion of the modernization of an economy.

Multinationals corporations, mostly from the United States, Japan and other industrialized nations of the world, have entered our life in a big way.

Despite repeated horror stories about mobile phones in the media, nearly half of the British public now owns one. Some 500 million people worldwide use mobile phones. Clearly, they have decided that the benefits outweigh any risks to their health. The benefits to the Exchequer in the United Kingdom are also substantial £22bn ($13.75bn) from the recent round of bids for new licenses. In this context, the publication of the Report of the independent expert   Group on Mobile Phones, a group organized by the Department of Health, could have political implications. Mobile phones are low power radio devices that transmit and receive radio frequency radiation (at frequencies in the microwave range of 900-1800 MHz) through an antenna used   close to the user’s head. Digital systems have recently replaced analogue. There is concern that microwaves might induce or promote cancer, and the symptoms associated with their use include sleep disturbance, memory more...

Asthma (Az-muh) is a chronic disease that affects your airways. The airways are the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside wails of your airways are inflamed (swollen). The inflammation (IN-fla-MAY-shun) makes the airways very sensitive, and they tend to react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When the airways react, they get narrower, and less air flows through to your lung tissue. This causes symptoms like wheeling (a whistling sound when you breathe), coughing, chest tightness, and trouble breathing, especially at night and in the early morning. Asthma cannot be cured, but most people with asthma can control it so that they have few and infrequent symptoms and can live active lives. When your asthma symptoms become worse than usual, it is called an asthma episode or attack. During an asthma attack, muscles around the more...
