While some parents are more interested in their own social relationships than in their children, other parents spend their evenings working or involved in time-consuming activities which keep them from spending those hours with their sons or daughters. When parents are preoccupied or away, children will seek attention elsewhere, usually in undesirable surroundings, with people who will recognize and accept them. In a situation of too much freedom and no discipline, the child gets into trouble, and parents often discover the problem too late. The lack of parental discipline and concern frequently results in severe problems for both the child and the parent.

Assignment:

  • Identify three of the most environmentally negative impacts of the Industrial Revolution and justify your choices. For example, the invention of the automobile revolutionized travel in a positive manner. However, this invention is causing some of the biggest environmental problems as a result of the extensive use of oil extracted from the earth.
  • Examine how these three negative impacts changed the environment; list the mechanisms through which this happened. For example, factories caused an increase in pollution through the release of toxic waste, which led to diminished and lost fish populations in rivers.
  • Explain the effect of the environmental movement on the process of industrialization in the United States during the 1970s.
  • Identify the laws passed to help ameliorate the environmental issues in the U.S. or around the world related to these three impacts. Have any laws been passed since this movement in the 1970s? If there have been laws implemented, summarize the spirit of the law and comment on the effectiveness of the law.
  • Based on your research, examine whether the state of the environment has become worse or has improved as a result of these laws. If you think conditions have not improved, suggest solutions or steps that must be done to improve the situation.

Support your statements with appropriate examples and scholarly references. Be sure to include an additional page for references.Write a 4–5-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources

Dark matter and dark energy are two of the biggest mysteries in science today. Although we don't know what they are, scientists would not have added them to our models of the universe without strong evidence that they represent real phenomena (see the Hallmarks of Science). In a 2-3 paragraph essay, identify one piece of evidence for the existence of either dark matter or dark energy, and describe it in detail. Explain why the observations you have chosen are scientifically convincing evidence for the existence of dark matter or dark energy.

Despite some of the business challenges that you identified about your chosen country, you decided to move ahead and open an office in the financial center of this country. Your first customer is a large MNC that is looking to finance a plant in Latin America. They have asked for your assistance in advising them on this business endeavor.

    • Foreign currency risk
    • Why they need to hedge foreign exchange
    • What sort of foreign exchange instruments you would recommend
    • Whether they have to be aware of any government regulations that would affect earnings and cash flow
