    Enviromental Tradeoffs Of Mtbe - Speech Outline The Environmental Tradeoffs of MTBE I Intro.: A Good afternoon everyone. If you would, imagine that you are going to spend a day on the lake. When you got there, you looked up into the sky to see, not a bright grinning sun staring back at you, but instead the gray layer of smog that so dominates the central valley. Now, go back and imagine that when you got to the lake, there is a beautiful sun high in the sky, but instead, now there is a strange turpentine like odor radiating from the lake. B 1.This is the controversy that exists over the oxygenate additive in gasoline know as Methyl Tertiart Butyl Ether, or otherwise know as MTBE. 2.MTBE has ...

  • Budget Negotiations - 626 words
    Budget Negotiations -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------ In the midst of the current budget negotiations, there is one neglected question worth asking: what does the public really want? Tax cuts? Paying down the national debt? More spending? If so, more spending on what? The available polling data, analyzed in this report, helps answer these questions. Does the public want to cut taxes? All else equal, of course the public wants tax cuts. But in the real world, all else is generally not equal -- cutting taxes involves giving up something else that might be done with the government's resources. When the tradeoffs are made explicit, cutting taxes doe ...

  • Mike Porter Researches - 4,691 words
    Mike Porter Researches Michael Porter On How To Marry Strategy & Operational Effectiveness The Harvard management guru argues that operations & strategy must fit to create a sustainable competitive advantage. For almost two decades, managers have been learning to play by a new set of rules. Companies must be flexible to respond rapidly to competitive and market changes. They must benchmark continuously to achieve best practice. They must outsource aggressively to gain efficiencies. . . Positioning -- once the heart of strategy -- is rejected as too static for today's dynamic markets and changing technologies. According to the new dogma, rivals can quickly copy any market position, and compet ...

  • Pacific Lumber - 1,486 words
    Pacific Lumber Pacific Lumber started its long history as an environmentally respectful company, however it has not continued that into this decade. The millions of acres of Redwoods that once densely covered the western land have been taken away for financial reward. Before selling, the company way was sustainability, now it is profitability. Because of the efforts of essentially one man, the business has over-harvested the supposed protected Redwood. It is not a simple answer as to why this has happened, nor is any explanation of environmental destruction. What people want often overrides the needs of the land, creating our society of selfishness and greed. As Hardin points out in his arti ...

  • Parasites And Their Virulence - 1,258 words
    ... d eventual collapse (Georgi and Georgi 1990). Host immobility increases the opportunities for female mosquitoes to find and feed upon hosts (Read and Harvey 1993). Infected dogs have large numbers of D. immitis microfilaria in their circulatory systems, again increasing the likelihood of ingestion by the insect. Many infected dogs eventually die from heartworm, but in the process the parasite has ensured transmission. Similar debilitating effects have been observed in tapeworm-stickleback interaction; infected sticklebacks must swim nearer the water's surface due to an increased rate of oxygen consumption caused by the parasite (Keymer and Read 1991). Parasitized sticklebacks are more li ...

  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls - 1,024 words
    Polychlorinated Biphenyls Polychlorinated biphenyls are a family of man-made chemicals that contain two hundred and nine individual compounds with varying toxicity. Many different combinations are possible. In chemical terminology, "phenyl" denotes a ring structure of six carbon atoms attached to something else; "biphenyl" results when two such rings are attached to each other. Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) is any molecule having multiple chlorine atoms attached to the carbon atoms of a biphenyl nucleus. Chlorine atoms can be placed at any or all of ten available sites. PCBs have been used widely as coolants and lubricants in transformers, capacitors, and other electrical equipment. The man ...

  • The Case Against Microsoft Is Based Not Just On Bad Economics, But On A Fundamental Misunderstanding Of Governments Decisionm - 1,253 words
    The case against Microsoft is based not just on bad economics, but on a fundamental misunderstanding of government's decision-making role when it comes to market operations. This misunderstanding has led to an attack on one of the USs most successful firms. It is difficult to measure consumer harms, much less harms that may only occur in the future. A common misconception about antitrust law is that its purpose is to ensure fair competition. That's not true; antitrust law's purpose is to protect consumers. If fair competition maximizes their welfare, so be it; if monopoly maximizes their welfare thats what the antitrust laws provide for. It's not clear that Microsoft has a monopoly in the fi ...

    ... ity to another where the laws of physics are slightly different in each. Therefore, nothing has to behave the same way all the time. As soon as you're not watching it, it could do something entirely different. What about all those theories and formulas people have come up with? Well, when someone creates a theory or formula to explain something, they're giving you something that gives an approximate description of that event. Theories and formulas are never 100% perfect. For example, if you graph the behavior of an object as it moves, and you write an equation to explain the graph that you see, you do not take into account behavior outside that range of the graph. There may be subtle cha ...

  • The Effect Of Highspeed Trains On Society - 1,180 words
    The Effect Of Highspeed Trains On Society A major reason in favor of the construction of high-speed trains in America is to relieve airways and traffic congestion. First, delays at airports are costly. Larry Johnson, director of the Center for transportation Research at Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, calculates that passengers lose more that twelve million hours each year in delays at O'Hare airport alone. In 1986, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) airlines, delays cost five billion dollars, including two billion in extra fuel and labor cost, for the ailing airline industry. According to the FAA, relieving airport congestion will cost one hundred and seventeen ...
