- Alcohol Tobacco Advertising On The Web - 1,210 words
Alcohol & Tobacco Advertising On The Web As adults, how do we encourage our children to explore the rich resources of the Internet without exposing them to a steady stream of marketing massages, such as junk e-mail, sexually explicit material and hate-mail? This is a question that many people in our society, including parents and educators are struggling to answer. Although we have yet to reach a consensus on this matter, one possible solution is to filter or block this objectionable material from our children without interfering with the rights of adults to view and visit any Web site they like. When the US Supreme Court overturned the Communications Decency Act in June of 1997, industry an ...

- In The Mix: Smoking: The Truth Unfiltered - 859 words
In The Mix: Smoking: The Truth Unfiltered For something that looks as if it came from your rain gutter, bidis have seen a surge in popularity among the American youth. Beyond the chest beating about the health risks of bidis, traditional tobacco connoisseurs find themselves shaking their heads and wondering why anyone would want to fire up such a ragged and tarry smoke. Why would people want to wear unwieldy platform shoes? Its fashion. I dont know why anyone would smoke them, personally, says Greg Jones, manager of Creager Mercantile, a Denver based tobacco wholesaler. Its probably just the way they look. Until recently few people knew what they were, but in recent months bidis have made ...

- Insider - 1,010 words
Insider A dramatization of 1995 events in which the tobacco industry allegedly covered up proof that nicotine is addictive and harmful. When Brown and Williamson executive Jeffrey Wigand (Crowe) tries to expose the industry's cover-up, he is threatened into silence. He eventually gets his story to 60 Minutes producer Lowell Bergman (AL Pacino), but CBS decides against airing it due to political and economic pressures, and the threat of lawsuit from Brown and Williamson. Before we start, I think it's important that you know a little thing about me, and where I'm coming from. I do smoke. But I believe that most of the lawsuits filed against the tobacco industry are unfounded, desperate attempt ...

- Philosophy 112 - 716 words
Philosophy 112 Agreement Breaker or Big Money Maker? When it comes to the issue of whether or not it is ok for someone the knowingly aid someone in breaking an agreement I feel it depends on the risks at stake for people not knowing what the person has to say. For example, if I had an agreement with a co-worker to not tell anyone that I had cancer I would be very angry if someone coerced that person into telling everyone. But on the other hand if I made that person promise not to tell anyone about a possible danger to all the other workers and someone coerced them into saying something it would be far better for all the workers to know about a possible danger even if I did not want them to k ...

- The Story Of An Hour - 1,140 words
The Story Of An Hour What I Already Know: I really dont know much about teen smoking or why they like to smoke. This is just what I think about it. I know most teens love to smoke because they think its cool. Some teens smoke because they want to fit in with their friends. Other kids just smoke because of the peer- pressure from their friends. What I want to Know: - Why do teens smoke? - Is it an addiction? - Do teens smoke because of the peer-pressure? What I found out: The reason why teens smoke is because of the cigarette ads and problems at home. Smoking and chewing tobacco are just like using drugs and alcohol. Once you start you may not ever be able to stop smoking. I also found out a ...
