How to solve the food problem in our world (Research Paper)

What is food? Food is a very important resource for keeps people life, but now we are faced the food crisis. In almost of the world the fertile land is becoming less and less. We don’t have enough fertile land to grow food. Therefore, it becomes a very serious problem when our foods begin to have crisis that can cause we die because of no food supply. We must to find solutions for solve food crisis, because people have to rely on food to get energy, if no food supply anymore people will die from no energy. Next, solve the food problem also save the land. Lands can become fertile again. Finally, if land becomes fertile again, we can grow more trees and plant to create good environment. Depend on these reasons we must to solve our world food problem.

When food become less that will be a very important for everyone because we have to rely on food to keep our life. Therefore, the world food problems become very serious and important. Now, in the world begin have food problems. Our fertile lands are degraded and population grown to cause world food problem. People become more and more, so we have to produce more and more food for this population growth. However, we do not have enough fertile lands to grow food and we already used the land for other purposes. People use the fertile land for growing crops and grazing cattle or for producing biofuels. Then, we don’t have good manner to use the land because we make the soil degraded and erosion. According to an article in Share the World’s Resources, “The majority of soil erosion is caused by water, either through flooding or poor irrigation, with the rest lost to winds. Farming practices such as ploughing also damage soil, as does repeated planting in fields, which depletes the soil of nutrients” (Global Food Crisis Looms as Climate Change and Population Growth Strip Fertile Land, 2007, para. 4). Another serious problem is we log the forest too much cause the deforestation and make too many pollution to pollute soil and land. Therefore, we must to solve these problems for stop the food crisis.

First, we have to change our attitude and manner to use lands because people do not have right attitude and manner to use lands. We use some fertile lands for grazing. According to Common Dreams News Center “the maps reveal that more than one third of the world’s land is being used to grow crops or graze cattle” (Ravilious, 2005, para. 1), so it reduces the number of lands that have fertile we can use to grow food. Another wrong attitude is farmer use the wrong manner to use lands. Farmer always uses land again and again when they are planting food. However, it is very harmful to our land when we do not give the land a rest to replace the nutrition in soil, we cannot grow food anymore. Therefore, replacement is a very important first step to solve food crisis.

Second, stop and reduce harm our land and resources. In this century we live now have a lot of people, so we have big population. Therefore, big population make big problem because people start to damage environment. They make deforestation and pollution. Deforestation means logging a lot of trees, but it is very harmful for our environment. Trees are very important protection for soil because trees can protect and prevent soil and water from going away. However people log tree a lot, so it makes a lot of water and soil are lose from the land and lose good environment of the land to plant food resources, because we lose the fertile land. Also, people make pollution damaged the environment, it cause soil become so bad. Plant foods need good and health environment, but polluted water and soil it make we cannot grow good food because every plant will die from pollution. According to Miller (1994), “air and water pollution from extraction, processing, transportation, and combustion of fossil fuels used in industrialized agriculture (p.43).” In the end, we have to stop harm our land and resources.

Third, we can discover and eat other food resources because of the fertile lands are becoming degraded, so we cannot have enough food to supply our societies. However, we do not have to eat the food we plant from the land, so discover new food resources become very important and necessary. In our world the seafood is not from the land and we do not have to plant it, so seafood is good resource to solve our food crisis. Sometime we can eat seafood to instead when we don’t have enough food to eat. Moreover, sea is a big world under the ground and it has a lot of created live in it, so seafood is good way to solve food crisis. Then, aquaculture is another solution for some countries cannot have seafood. Aquaculture means fish farming. People breed fish and eat it to instead crop. According to Miller (1994), “aquaculture supplies about 10% of the world’s commercial fish harvest (p.46).” and “it can produce high yields (p.46).” Depend on this people do not have to worry about food problem. Moreover, we don’t have to eat the food we plant because we can try to eat wild food. Wild foods grow itself we don’t have to feed them. The wild food like some plants or insects can grow itself without care and feed, so we also can eat it to reduce our food crisis. In fact, according to Miller (1994), “Scientists have identified many plants and inset that could be used as sources of food (p.44).” Therefore, these two food resources are good resources to try.

Opponents of some expert think food problem are not a serious problem and we can use money to get more resources. However that is not a good way to solve food crisis. In our world now we already do not have enough land to grow food. Dr. Ramankutty said, “Expect for Latin America and Africa, all the places in the world where we could grow crops are already being cultivated. The remaining places are either to cold or too dry to grow crops” (Ravilious, 2005, para.11). According to this we can know if we don’t care about the food problem that will become very serious problem. It can mean that we don’t have any food to eat or plant to supply people in the future. Second, using money to get more resources, it goes against the nature. If we don’t replace the environment and just pay more money to get more food resource constantly that can cause everything to become nothing one day. We just pay more and more money to get resource and still do not care the condition about the land, so the environment is still bad. Thus one day the money will be consumed. Finally, countries will become poor because of the bad environment and bad economy. Therefore, stop the na├»ve thinking and stop to waste money for get more food resources. Using money on solve food problem and environment is a very important and best way to rescue country.

In conclusion, food problem is becoming a serious problem cause no food supply, because food crisis is caused by many reasons that we can prevent, so we must prevent food crisis and care about it. To solve food crisis we have to change our attitude and manner of using the lands, stop and reduce harm our land and resources and discover and eat other food resources. Following these methods will help to solve our world food problem. In the end, people should help environment. It is equal to helping themselves to live happily.

Clone is changeful!

In Guterl’s (2008) article, he explains that cloning for livestock is good. First, he introduce the clone is allowed to product and shows some food expert they said clone food is safe to eat and indicate U.S and Europe they both want clone to label and product. Later he makes some question to ask the clone is good and safe to eat or not. Then, author introduces the profit about elite cow and how can elite cow make good profit. The importance is the cloning is the latest and most powerful reproductive tool and also he told us the U.S. farmers already have clone cow and it already entered in the food supply. And then the author explains we do not have to afraid it because even thought some clone cow have some problem, but it doesn’t hurt people.

In this article the author talk about clone. He gave us some information and gave some advantage about clone. Clone is really not a harmful thing because it is not really harm people and provide us good food. Also, clone helps framers earn more profit. Clone is a high technique in the world. It brings too many convenient things to us. Cloning provides high quality meat, fruit and vegetable. Then, we do not have to pay a lot of money, but we can eat it. Therefore, clone should continue to use.

First, clone can provide us good food. In the past we did not have clone this kind of high quality technique, so everyone just can eat what they feed. They did not have choice, but now it can be change. Clone is a technique can copy one good genetic to create the same thing. Therefore if we have one food resource that is really prefect and valuable that will be a good chance to make more good food resources. Moreover, we can begin have more and more good food resources to eat and that will become easy. We can begin have high quality and health meats, vegetables and fruits. Depend on cloning we can easily to offer good food for everybody and people can eat more good food now.

Second, clone can create more food resources because clone can copy and extract the genetic material, so depend on this cloning can create more food resources. We can extract the genetic from one and mix to another one to create new food resources or depend on cloning we can change one food resource’s live habit. For example, if the food resource is very weak to gown up, like it can die very easily we can make it become stronger. In the past when we do not have this kind of high quality technique we just can eat and plant what food we already know or have, but now in the market we already have some fruits and vegetables made from this kind of cloning. They have new taste and new looking, so it can become our new food resources, because cloning create the new food we ever have before. Therefore, clone is great because it can offer we more foods to eat.

Third, clone is not harmful because it is high technique, so we can believe clone is safe because high technique cannot have risk or it can reduce risk. In the market and farmers already have clone food for sale and people already eat it, but until now nobody get problem form eat cloned food. Everyone is safe to eat clone food. Also, expert indicate even thought the animal got some problem itself, but it is not harmful to customer when they eat it (Guterl, 2008). Therefore, we can know clone is harmless and changeful we should continue to use it.

In conclusion, cloning is a good technique to change our life and give us a lot of new things. Clone can provide us with good food, it can create more food resources and it is not harmful. Also clone prove our technology is improved because depend on this technique we can create more new food resources, provide high quality food. Depend on clone framer can provide good meat to customer, but it do not cost too much on farmer and customer. So, according to these advantages we can know clone is helping us to improve our marketing. Therefore, clone is a good choice to use to improve our society.

Dangerous Cell Phone

Do you using cell phone while driving car? It is a common behavior to want to use cell phone when they are driving. However, it is very dangerous. Now, in the Untied States already have some states where begin to ban this behavior because it has some potential dangers. Using cell phone while driving car causes a lot of serious problems that make people die. Therefore, using cell phone while driving car should be banned, because personal problems, economic problems and traffic problems.

First, it is personal problem. Using cell phone while driving car makes people cannot able concentrate to drive. People just talking on the phone do not notice about traffic changes. Moreover, using cell phone during driving is equal people drive when they are drunk. According to Curry’s article “using a cell phone while driving to the impact of driving legally drunk” (Curry, 2003, para. 02). This is because people using cell phone on the drive do not have a clear mind to notice the traffic changes and they do not know when they should change their speed for preventing to hit other cars. So, people using cell phone during driving car cause the accidents. Therefore, for prevent these kinds of accidents using cell phone while driving car should be banned.

Second, using cell phone while driving car can cause economic problems. It causes people and government to lose money. When people using cell phone while driving car that will increase the gasoline waste. The reason is people just concentrate on talking on the phone, so they will slow down their drive speed and do not change to the fast speed way because they don’t know which way is fast can let them arrive quickly. Therefore, it take a long time to drive and people have to pay extra money to buy extra gasoline. Next, when the accident happened, people get injured by the accidents and the cars and roads are also damaged, so people have to pay extra money to see a doctor and repair car or buy new car. The government has to pay money because of making the road back, like build brand new road for people to drive. Therefore, using cell phone while driving car should be banned because it causes everybody to waste money.

Third, using cell phone while driving car cause traffic problem. It makes the traffic jam. When people using cell phone while driving car they slow the speed and do not change to the other fast ways or some road do not have too many cars. And usually on the highway always have a lot of cars. If the highway doesn’t have a lot of cars that will be fine, but if there have a lot of cars and too many people using cell phone during driving car that will make a big traffic problem. It is make everybody slow down and become a traffic jam. Using cell phone during driving car that waste people’s time, make people have more long time when they going to work and cause traffic jam. Therefore, it should be banned.

Opponents of using cell phone while driving car some people say they still are fine when they are using cell phone while driving car. In addition, some people say sometimes they have to pick up some important or emergency call, so they have to use it. However, these things are not true and totally wrong. The truth, using cell-phone while driving car, affects people to drive and their safety. According to an article in Ezine Articles, “chatting on your cell phone makes you four times more vulnerable to a serious car crash than someone who does not use a cell phone while driving” (Morris, 2006, para. 1). Next, some people say they have to use cell phone during driving car because they have to wait or talk about some important or emergency call. However, now we can do some method to change this situation. The method is like use the hand-free headset, make a distance that we can reach thus we don’t have to bend to answer and use the phone when we stop driving (Curry, 2003). Using cell phone during driving is really bad because it can cause accident. And now we can have a lot of method to prevent using cell phone while driving, so using cell phone while driving is not necessary anymore. Therefore, using cell phone while driving be banned.

In conclusion, using cell phone while driving car is a really bad and dangerous behavior for everyone. It causes people to have accidents, economic problems and traffic problems. It makes get hurt and die and pay extra money on it. Therefore, we love ourselves, and we better follow the expert’s direction. Use the hand-free headset when we are driving, make a distance that we can reach thus we don’t have to bend to answer and use the phone when we stop driving. In the end, the most important good way for protect our life is not use cell phone while driving and ban it.

How to save and protect penguins (Research Paper)

Our adorable penguins are disappearing now. My research paper is about penguins. I chose penguins for my research because they have become endangered. Currently our climate has changed, and the biggest reason is global warming. It pushes penguins to die. Now, a lot of pollution makes global warming and global warming makes the temperatures get warm. And global warming makes the sea temperatures become high until some creatures cannot live in there, and makes the sea ice melt. Therefore, penguins cannot live in their ecosystem anymore. They have to find other land to live on or go to extinction. A century ago, a lot of penguins lived, waddled, and swam to some islands. “There were almost 120,000 penguins who lived in our world and they could live very well.”(Wines, M. 2007.) In the past there was a large number of these animals in our world. And penguins had a lot of different colonies in our world; some were African penguins, Gentoo penguins or Antarctic penguins. Now our society has a lot of developed technology and scientific stuff to use, so we make a lot of pollution in our world. It causes global warming and affects penguins’ lives, so penguins become less and less in our world, and fishing, hunting, and commercialism are also problems. Our experts have found this problem, so now government has begun to protect penguins. They are doing some things like cutting greenhouse gases to protect penguins, because they want penguins to survive in our world.

Our adorable penguins are going to extinction because of global warming. It is caused by too many reasons, so people should save and protect penguins to be alive. Therefore, to save our adorable penguins we can do these methods. We can find a new home for penguins, we should ban some artificial activity that will push penguins to die and we have to do some solution to prevent and reduce global warming, to stop global warming from pushing penguins to die.

First, we can find a new home for penguins. Now, penguins are becoming extinct, because they have no place that can offer them a home, so finding a new place is important, so we can find new places that have abundant resources, and food that can be provided for penguins. Then, we can offer artificial security care to care for penguins and make a new place where no external factors will cause penguins to die. Another thing we also can do is to take care of young penguins during the time when the penguins don't have a good immunity against high temperature. Here are some solutions said “predator control, protection of habitat and food supply”(RoguePundit, 2006, par.5). Now we have already had some home for penguins. That is Quality housing for blue penguins. “This kind of nest box design illustrated on the right has been used to accommodate blue penguins in areas where suitable nest sites have not been available”(blue penguin). And now we also have the monitoring program to protect penguins’ habitat that is for monitor penguin nesting habitat. According to these solution find a new home for penguins is also an important way to save penguins.

Second, we should ban some artificial activity which will pushes penguins to die. These kinds of artificial activity also have a big effect to push penguins to die because fishing is cutting supplies for penguins’ main food. Zoologists at the University of Washington and Foundation Patagonia Natural in Argentina say, “Today in the journal Science that uncontrolled fishing would be disastrous for wildlife in the region.” These effects could disrupt ecosystem function, other fisheries and ecotourism. Therefore, we should ban people from doing commercial fishing, harvesting, and hunting. And we should ban people’s importing of penguins and exporting of alien species that will cause penguins to become extinct.

Third, we have to do some solution to prevent and reduce global warming to stop global warming from pushing penguins to die. People can study new energy resources for reducing use of fossil fuel. Another easy thing we can do is we have to reuse and recycle, not to use any product for just one time. Wangari Maathai said, “plastic bags clog waste dumps and blight the landscape in Kenya and other countries”(Maathai, 2005. Par.11) and “If we did not use these bags, and instead carried our shopping in more long-lasting and environmentally friendly containers, we could revitalize traditional industries like basket and cloth weaving.” (Maathai, 2005. par.12.) And other is like the “Greenbelt movement,” people have to plant a number of trees, and to reduce logging trees, because trees can reduce the CO2. These things can help us to prevent global warming.

Global warming is a very big problem that causes penguins to become extinct. Some people said global warming is a natural thing. They say we don’t have to care about it and we can do nothing, but global warming pushes penguins to go to extinction. In Science Daily an expert, Lyons said, “The data implies that there may be less food there as temperatures rise.”(Science Daily, 2007, par. 8) and in Science Daily an expert, Lyons also points to the fact “that all the global climate models predict a warming will decrease in sea ice along its margins.”(Science Daily, 2007, par.11). Therefore, we still have to find a way to reduce it becoming worse. We can do something like ban some artificial activity that will push penguins to die and to find some solution to prevent and reduce global warming to stop global warming from pushing penguins to die.

In conclusion, global warming is becoming a serious problem to cause penguins to go to becoming extinct. Because global warming is caused by many reasons, and we can prevent. Therefore, to protect penguins from global warming we can find a new home for penguins, we should ban some artificial activity that will push penguins to die, and we have to find some solution to prevent and reduce global warming and stop global warming from pushing penguins to die. In the end, people should help our adorable penguins survive so that everyone can see it forever.

Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart is a famous and cheap supermarket in America. Wal-Mart is a successful company in America and now they have bought land and are planning to build a new super center. Wal-Mart almost owns all of the market business in America. It can prove Wal-Mart is really successful and most customers accept shopping at Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is a good place to go because it is very convenient for us.

Wal-Mart’s price is cheaper than that of other supermarkets, it usually has lot things we want to buy, and it is a 24-hours supermarket. “ It became the biggest employer overnight, setting wage rates for all retailers” (USA TODAY, 2003, par. 21). Wal-Mart also improves the economy. And it has created 125.000 jobs in U.S. (Hoenig, 2004).

Wal-Mart has become important in our life. Some people say Wal-Mart still will cost a lot of money, but the advantage is more than disadvantage. It gives us convenience for buy everything and improves the economy. “Wal-Mart is one of the most impressive success stories in the history of business” (Locke, 2004, par.4). “Wal-Mart’s influence on the U.S. economy has reached levels not seen by a single company since the 19th-cenetruy rise of Standard Oil” (USA TODAY, 2003, par. 1). And it offers us low-price. “Wal-Mart is especially popular among low-income shoppers who cannot afford the prices of the more upscale store” (Locke, 2004. Par-2). We can save money from Wal-Mart because it provides low price and serves communities with long hours.

In conclusion, Wal-Mart is a good place for us to go shopping. It gives convenience; we can buy cheaper stuff at Wal-Mart, and we also can buy it in the middle of the night. Therefore, the new super center is a very good plan for Carbondale, because it will bring another advantage for everyone who lives in Carbondale.

How to save and protect penguins (Research Paper Proposal)

My research paper is about penguins. I chose penguins for my research because they have become endangered. Currently our climate has changed, and the biggest reason is global warming. It pushes penguins to die. Now, a lot of pollution makes global warming and global warming makes the temperatures get warm. And global warming makes the sea temperatures become high until some creatures cannot live in there, and makes the sea ice melt. Therefore, penguins cannot live in their ecosystem anymore. They have to find other land to live on or go to extinction. A century ago, a lot of penguins lived and waddled or swam to some islands. And they could live very well. In the past there was a large number of these animals in our world. And penguins had a lot of different colonies in our world; some were African penguins, Gentoo penguins or Antarctic penguins. Now our society has a lot of developed technology and scientific stuff to use, so we make a lot of pollution in our world. It causes global warming to affect penguins’ life, so penguins become less and less in our world. And our experts have found this problem, so now our government has begun to protect penguins. They are doing some things like cutting greenhouse gases to protect penguins, because they want penguins to survive in our world.

In my paper, I will write that because I like penguins, penguins are becoming extinct, and we make a lot of pollution that causes global warming, to save penguins from the edge of extinction we have to protect penguins. First, we can find a new home for penguins. Next, we should ban some artificial activity which will push penguins to die. Finally, we have to find some solution to prevent and reduce global warming, to stop global warming from pushing penguins to die. Global warming causes penguins to become extinct and we make a lot of pollution, which causes global warming. We must do it.

I have found a variety of articles that give penguins’ history and penguins’ life ecosystems and explain why and how penguins are becoming extinct. Also I found some articles that talk about how to save penguins. I think I still need to find more resource to help me to make a good research paper.
