The Interplay between Hazardous Waste Statutes

 

Prepare a two- to three-page paper (excluding title and reference pages) that evaluates what is meant by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act‘s (RCRA) commitment to “cradle-to-grave” management of hazardous waste. Additionally, assess the requirements imposed by the RCRA upon generators, transporters, and Treatment, Storage, and Disposal (TSD) facilities. Analyze whether these requirements are sufficient to prevent future Superfund (CERCLA) sites. This paper should be formatted according to APA style guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Students must use two scholarly sources (other than text) and provide proper APA citation.

dq. 1 Find an article on the Internet concerning a hazardous waste problem, challenge, or issue in business that is or should be, by your estimation, regulated by RCRA. Briefly describe the issue presented in the article and provide a link to the article. Given RCRA’s requirements, critique whether RCRA is effective in protecting human health and the environment in regulating the handling of the hazardous waste that is the subject of the article that you found. What implications does RCRA have for business (e.g., temptations to pollute, burdensome paperwork requirements, ease or difficulty of compliance, necessity to employ environmental compliance experts, etc)? Your discussion must reflect an understanding of the U.S. legal system and RCRA’s role or place within that system. Respond to at least two of your fellow students' postings.

 

dq. 2 Using the Internet, choose a video to watch from the Superfund redevelopment videos page of the Environmental Protection Agency site. From the video, explain the benefits of using cleaned-up Superfund sites for public purposes (e.g., soccer fields, public libraries, parks, shopping centers, government buildings, etc.) and whether you believe that such sites are safe to use for those purposes. As a business or an investor, would you consider investing in a brownfield to develop it? Why or why not?

Instructions for Part 1

To begin, pick one of the first person or third person short stories we have read (“A&P,” “The Lesson” or “Where are You Going, Where Have You Been”). Revisit the chosen story’s exposition, rising action and climax, and think about the key information that is revealed about the protagonist at these points of the plot. Must be 450 words.

 

Then consider: if Sammy, Sylvia or Connie could direct readers like the mother in “Girl” or Yunior in “How to Date…,” what would they say? Write an “instruction manual” in the style of the second person short stories we have read, using one of the three aforementioned characters as the narrator.

 

Since you obviously cannot reproduce the whole story in only 450 words, limit your “revision” to either the plot’s exposition or climax. Use your creativity to help you interpret as many of the key points of characterization as possible. You may also elaborate upon established details or invent new ones that seem appropriate for the character. Be sure to generate a guide that aligns with the major conflict or concerns of the featured character. (A guide written by Sammy, for example, would likely tell readers how to look cool in front of girls or quit a dinky afterschool job with style, while one written by Sylvia might relate how to make mischief with friends or cope with one of Miss Moore’s lessons.)

 

Things to Remember

   Your story should be told from the second person point of view.

   Do not forget to give your story a title. Again, really think about how the character would refer to it. 

   1-2 typed pages one-inch margins, double-spaced, 12-point font

   Original title in regular type and centered.

Instructions for Part 2

Part B: Reflection (at least 250 words):

 

1  Explain how changing a story’s point of view alters what readers understand about the plot and characters. In your opinion did changing the point of view make the protagonist more or less sympathetic, more or less engaging? Do you feel anything was “lost in translation” because of this change, or if anything was gained? 

2  Discuss your process in rewriting the story from a different point of view. What did you find most interesting and most challenging about this task?

3  Evaluate your story’s tone and how it compares and contrasts with the original.

 

Part 1 and part 2 need to be written as seperate documents. Remember to use the stories, "Girls" and "How to Date a Brown Girl (Black Girl, White Girl, or Halfie)" as examples of how to write part 1, I fell like How to Date.... is a better example but you choose which is better for you.  I prefer that you have read the stories but if you need links I will provide them..

What issue or issues need to be addressed to increase sales of fabric care products (whichever ones you choose) in Target?  Provide sufficient justification.

  compare three laundry detergent( Tide(liquid), Tide(power), Tide(pods), base on the customer review, what issue there are. 

 

Business Ethics – Paper Topics for Paper #1.

 

1. Your paper should give an answer to ONE of the underlined group of questions. 

2. The suggestions are just issues you might want to consider when answering the questions and points to help you consider the issues in the question. You DO NOT need to address all of the “suggested issues to consider” in your paper.

3. The paper should present your understanding and opinions of arguments and materials covered in THIS class. First sources should be the material assigned and are necessarily first sources. Second sources are not necessary and you will be graded not only on your understanding of the secondary source, but also its relevance to the issue at hand.  Second sources are not acceptable on their own.

4. Papers are to be 5 to 7 pages in length, typed or word processed, and double spaced. Number your pages!

5. All margins are to be 1 inch all around. All fonts used should be in 12 point type. Do not separate paragraphs with extra rows or returns. Microsoft Word defaults to 1.5 spacing between paragraphs, or more. Please correct that in your paper. Do not repeat or retype the question at the beginning of your paper. See the sample page attached for visual confirmation of the text format required.

6. The paper should be your work. DO NOT turn in any work that you did not produce by your own hand. 

 

1) Some have argued that the diversity of cultural values across different societies should tell us something about the nature of morality, namely that the truth about moral principles and actions is "relative" in some sense.  Is this view correct? Why?

 

2)What should Martin Field of RUN Inc. do? Why?

Suggested issues to consider: Which of the three theories we have studied best categorizes your approach to developing an answer to guide Martin's behavior?  Why did you choose this approach? Anticipate and reply to any objections which you think are pertinent.

 

3)What should Stan Stark of Anzen-Motorola do? Why?

Suggested issues to consider: What bearing does Motorola's commitment to their multi-national corporate values of safety for all employees have on this situation? Do the local Nambunese mores or customs, like those regarding harmony and duty, play any special roll in your decision procedure? Which of the three theories we have studied best characterizes your analysis? Anticipate and reply to any objections which you think are pertinent. 

 

4)What are the strengths and weaknesses of using the following kinds of moral theories for application in business:

i)Virtue Theory

ii)Utilitarianism

iii)Deontology

Suggested issues to consider: Which do you think is the strongest? Which is the best choice for application to moral problems in business?  How would you tailor the theory for your needs in business ethical applications?  What sort of rules, considerations, or virtues would be needed to make deontology, utilitarianism, or virtue theory applicable to business ethics? 

 

The next page will demonstrate the format for your answers regarding type face, margins, spacing etc. 



 

            This is sufficient indentation to begin your first paragraph. Notice as well that I started this paper 1 return from the top of page. Go ahead and put all the relevant name, title, etc on a title page that is separate from the body of your paper. Now suppose I am done with this very short paragraph.

            See how I just hit enter /return, indented ½ an inch, and started typing again? There is no additional space between paragraphs. When the writer places extra spacing between paragraphs this is meant to signal a change in the topic under discussion, or a topical break. Again, make sure you check out the software you are using. I don't care much about the font, but I do want the paper typed in 12 point scale. This font is Times New Roman, but most anything will be accepted. And for goodness sake, please staple your answers together! One and only one staple is necessary if done correctly. Staplers are fairly easy to operate. Do not make an elaborate origami sculpture out of your paper in the upper left hand corner just because you didn't bring a stapler. I will probably be nice enough to bring my stapler along.

            Let's assume I want to give an extended quote or list the premises of an argument:

"Whether a quote or a list of premises, notice how the page is double indented and starts over at the same point on the soft return. Also notice that the type face is reduced, and this part of the paper is single spaced.

 

And here we are again back to normal. The purpose of all the above formatting at the quotation section is to reduce the size of the quotation to leave you more room to expound on the meaning of the quotation. Your words are more important than the quotations.

            And for love of all that is reasonable, please number your pages! Top of the page, bottom of the page, right, left or middle, I don't care where, but please do it.

            Good Luck!
