I believe everyone in high school should carry a water bottle. Water is a necessity, and students constantly go out of their way to get it. Time is repeatedly wasted while they leave class to get drinks of water. And a lot of kids in high school get dehydrated from not drinking enough. Loss of focus occurs when a person does not receive correct amounts of water.
Water is a very important part of life, it has several uses but is most commonly used for drinking. Everyone needs water and it is great to always have some with you. Water bottles allow you to be hydrated and alert. Those who carry water bottles have a much easier time staying attentive and awake during school.
Every day at school dozens of people leave class to go get water, this is a massive waste of time. When students leave a class they never get to learn all of the lessons that were taught while they were gone. This causes confusion and people to fall behind. If every one carried water bottles then they could gain all of the knowledge that otherwise would have been missed while taking a water break.
High school students rarely drink the amount of water that the human body requires. Their bodies are parched and it affects their ability to focus on school work. When you do not stay properly hydrated your brain will shrink which causes headaches. This is a major distraction when you are trying to learn or get work done. If people always have a water bottle at their disposal, then they can easily keep hydrated and function properly.
Water bottles should be carried by everyone attending school, water is something everyone needs. Staying hydrated is very important while you are trying to learn. Having a water bottle can help you to waste less time, and gain more knowledge. Water also helps the human body to stay strong minded and alert while working or learning. For these reasons I believe everyone should carry a water bottle.
The station was painfully close. I was racing through the desert, the sun slowly roasting and marinating me, soon id be a meal for the grim reaper. Sand tore away under the wheels of my bike as I rode hard east. Looking down into my lap, I eyed the package. I could abscond. It wouldn’t take me long to make it over the border, and with this package id be set for life.
“If only.” Letting out a sigh, I sped to the station.Water was life. Water was money. Water was power. These were the truths of the world. They told legends of a time where there was so much water, people would bathe in it, they would let it wash through sewages, and every house would have its very own supply of water. Children were told of magical places known as “oceans.” Water as far as the eye could see, and in that magical place where mythical creatures, some as large as a hundred men or more. But these were just tales told to bring comfort to thirsty children, inventions of our own imagination, made in order to keep ourselves from going completely insane.
I stopped to rest as the shadows grew taller and the sun began to set. Gingerly, I opened the package to reveal contents, that were far more valuable than my own life, my own and that of at least a million other people would not equal the importance of the package.
“Not only does bottled water lead to unbelievable pollution but plastic has chemicals in it!” Suzuki states. Have you ever bought a package of water at the grocery store and then went on, without thinking about where it came from? In fact spring water is found at hazardous dumping sites. Why buy bottled water when 25% of bottled water is actually tap water and that tap water is nowhere near free from clean.. Some chemicals you can find in waterbottles are Biphenyl A. Reusing these bottles can be harmful as well. Each time you reuse them the chemicals spread more and more. Each time the chemicals spread through your body and into the fluids from the water. Many waterbottles such as Sigg, Klean Kanteen and Gaiam prevent these chemicals from entering in the bottles. People should use reusable waterbottles instead of plastic bottles because of the negative impact that creating plastic bottles has on the environment, the cost involved and the water in plastic bottles is not always cleaner.
Plastic waterbottles are one of the most known contributors to global warming and impacts on the environment. Plastic...
... The topic of whether or not to ban waterbottles has been continuously controversial ever since it slowly escalated to becoming a problem. Although waterbottles are great in some aspects, they can also be very detrimental in other perspectives.
While some people believe that waterbottles have no real use, they are actually incredibly useful in times of natural disasters. Florida’s hurricane season for example is harsh and brutal and bottled water is a necessity. For instance, when hurricane Katrina struck, many people had no access to anything but bottled water. In cases like that, waterbottles could save lives. Also, scientific studies show that bottled water is better for you than regular tap water; kids who are more prone to illness could get sick from tap water. Also, the elderly and pregnant women are put at risk to disease when using unfiltered tap water.
Although uniformed people think that waterbottles don’t greatly impact the current and future environment, waterbottles are actually capable of destroying ecosystems. For instance, in the Pacific Ocean, there is a huge collection of trash, waterbottles, etc. called “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” Also known as the “Pacific...
Plastic waterbottles are everywhere, from classrooms to malls. As a matter of fact, in the US alone, 1500 waterbottles are consumed every second. Bottled water produces 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. This type of garbage is flooding landfills, causing death amongst many birds and fish. Not only does bottled water harm wildlife, but as you will find out it may be also harming humans. Bottled water is also part of other problems such as how costly it can be over time. Bottled water isn't what is seems and it usually carries many negative effects with every use.
Waterbottle use is not only harmful to the environment, but it is harmful to people’s wallets too. Bottled water usually costs around 1 dollar per 20 ounce bottle. At 5 cents an ounce a gallon of bottled water would cost 10 dollars. This makes water, a necessary aspect of life, cost more than gas. Despite this outrageous price tag many still tend to throw away their hard earned cash towards bottled water which is on average about $550 a year. The same water that is bought using dollars can be obtained for mere pennies if it were taken from the tap, but Tap water? Isn’t bottled water better? You may be surprised at how little you know.
Don't wallow, shoot into the shower
A quick shower uses far less water than a long soak in the tub. Think twice before you have one!
Save your washing up for one wash
Instead of washing up as you go, save it up and do it in one go to minimise the amount of water you use. As one MoneySaver says, it's a great excuse to leave the washing up!
Conserve water and 'mulch' your garden plants
Mulching garden plants (covering with wood chippings or leaf mould) reduces the need for watering as they will retain moisture for longer. See the BBC's guide on how to mulch.
Love the shade - keep plants out of the sun
Moving pot plants and house plants out of the sun helps limit the amount of water they need once they've had their fair share of sunshine.
Watering the plants? Don't forget your roots
Use the simple trick of an upside-down waterbottle with holes in it to get water direct to the roots of your plants - this should help save waste.
Turn it off - don't run the tap
When cleaning don't run the tap, instead use a wash bowl to rinse cloths.
Clean the car smartly
When you really get to the point you have to clean the car, use a bucket of hot soapy water and a watering can of clean water to rinse - no need to use a hose at all. Consider using waterless valeting products too.
Don't bathe pets, keep Fido dry
It can be bad for their...
...I never really felt like water was ever an issue in my life, right up until I wrote the wrong essay for class last week. It all started when the teacher mentioned that he drank over 5,000 waterbottles per year or so. After that day I started paying attention to how much water I drink and how basically all the water I drink comes from waterbottles that I keep buying through out the day. Hydration is a big deal, especially in the heat we have to bear living in San Antonio. I drink at least 5 waterbottles per day, instead of drinking sodas and juices, and I actually love it. As long as I feel hydrated I feel like I have a better appetite, a better mood, and basically better health. I could never imagine life without water and personally I believe there is no way that humanity could endure a day without fresh water. Never the less we see water being wasted everyday, we see climate change destroying the polar caps, and companies polluting water sources. I hope we never reach the point where water will be a commodity, where water prices will be affecting those who won’t be able to pay for it. I hope I never ever have to face the difficulty of not being able to drink water or buy water. Through writing about this, I started to...
...and flexibility we can find plastic products ranging from car bodies, home and office furniture, computers, waterbottles and as package materials for almost everything that needs transportation and storage. Besides since plastics are mostly made from the byproducts of the petroleum manufacturing processes, they are very inexpensive. The increasing use of single use plastic has also resulted in it being added to the Municipal Solid Waste according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Single use plastics are basically the plastic products used for packing purposes of almost all manufactured products from the most high tech equipment like computers to the most basic ones like drinking water. Single use plastics may be convenient but at what cost to human life and the planet.
Plastics are manufactured from petroleum products and are 4% of the petroleum consumption with additional 4% in terms of energy used in the manufacturing process. One third of this goes on to be used in packaging material which gets discarded after their first use. One issue is that the toxicity to humans from the single use plastics are mainly due to their use in packing food stuff. Drinking waterbottles are often the most talked about sources of toxicity to humans from plastics. Pthalates and Bisphenol A (BPA) are the two most known toxins which come from plastics into the contained food or water. In addition,...
1. Discuss competition in the search engine industry. Which of the five competitive forces seems strongest? Weakest? What is your assessment of overall industry attractiveness?
Suppliers are very weak:
Computer components suppliers
Web publishers licensing the search engine
Rivalry among search engine firms is Very Strong:
Rapid growth in online auctions is acting to strengthen rivalry
Technology advances from Microsoft is the strongest source of competition
Recent entry of capable competitors (MSN) has heightened rivalry substantially
Jockeying for position among the search engine competitors is very active.
Competing with internet portals & web publisher for advertising dollars
Rivalry is centered around:
o Name recognition, image
o Services provided
o Relationship with Internet users, web sites, & advertisers
o Relevancy of a search results
The threat of additional entry is weak:
The search engine industry has very few legitimate competitors
Entry barriers are high which lowers threat of new entry
The major barrier is the marketing/advertising costs needed to attract site users in adequate growing numbers lowering this threat
The industry is generating attractive profits which may attract people
The pool of likely entry candidates is small lowering the threat
The biggest potential threat is for new entry comes from existing...
