Cell phone & Driving interviews

Background : There has been a survey that showed that motorists are afraid of being involved in a car accident more than in the past. Because the other drivers may not pay attention when they drive by doing some activities such as eating food, talking to passengers, using a cell phone etc. These activities distract drivers. And cell phone using is a serious concern because there is evidence that using a cell phone makes you 4 times more likely to get a car crash according to news report, even though getting a car crash from using a cell phone may not be the number one cause of car accidents. But many cities for example Chicago are already aware of that; now there is no more cell phones at the wheel in Chicago.

Interviews : I interviewed Gabe Greenspan, who is a cesl teacher, about using cell phone while driving. He is quite a good driver in my opinion because he never has a car accident while he uses a phone. Mr. Greenspan normally does not use a cell phone while he drives, but he does sometimes for short calls. He also thinks drivers should not use a cell phone because they cannot concentrate on their driving even though drivers may use a hand free phone. It is better to use a hand free phone, but it still distracts drivers. Furthermore, he agrees with having a law that bans cell phone using because this law can protect the other drivers. And also this law can reduce car accidents in his opinion. In addition, he gives the idea that can help reduce car accidents, which is that drivers should have appropriate driving education and training. Next, if drivers get caught many times because of their driving, they should go back to train again.

My point of view : I mostly agree with Mr. Greenspan's opinion. And also people should know how to use a cell phone in the right place and in the right time.

Synthesis
Date: 06/27/2005

Many international students are now in the United States. Even though a number of international students decrease after nine eleven’s incident. However, international students are more valuable for American’s community. Their advantages to the US’s society are; help the US’s economic growth, share international cultures in the US’s community, and increase cross-culture understanding. Again international students are very significant for the US’s community as following.

Firstly, international students help the US’s economic growth. Wherever quite a few international students are, the specialized businesses for them usually happen in that areas. For instance of those businesses are specialized food shops and restaurants and these businesses contribute to the tax base of the community (Zukoff and Williams, 1985). Further more international students expand the American economy through international education. Ley says “If we assume that 300,000 foreign students spend $10,000 per year in the United States, we can see that 3 billion dollars are contributed annually to the American economy through international education” (p.25-39).

Secondly, international students provide cultural diversity to small community and thus provide opportunities for cultural exchanges… and it is very typical to see international festivals in the places that many foreign students are (Deaver, 1980).

Finally, cross-cultural understanding increases because of international students. Foreign students usually bring their own cultures when they go aboard. This cross-cultural is very important in interdependent world (Marjo, 1960).

In sum up, international students are quite welcome to America. As we look back in the past, many foreign students have shown a big number in the United States already. “ In 1984, there were approximately 345,000 foreign students in the United States” according to Venderpluym. Therefore, I would like to say Americans like to have international students in their communities because of international student’s advantages I mentioned above.

The Colorado River

Eve
EAP2 WW 053
Research Paper - Final Draft
Date : 06/27/2005

Abstract: The Colorado River used to be one of the most sustainable ecosystem of the United States in the past. In the past the Colorado River had; the fertility of native fish, water and surroundings nearby. Today the Colorado River still has all those things even if it is far from what the Colorado river was. Right now the Colorado River is no more than a rich heritage of the western states. There is not much water to store in the Colorado River, a little native fish left in the river, and also the environment close by does not thrive any more. These phenomena occur after dams are built, more water is used by increasing populations, and there is some drought in the western states. How to halt these problems right away ? The solution right now is; sharing more water rights for drought problem and this water sharing agreement must be approved among those western states. Another solution is; using a long term project named “ blueprint” which will help to preserve more native fish and also solve most of the problems from a dam. Because of the serious situations of the Colorado River above, we can no longer put off the Colorado River’s problems. It is time to pull out its problems. Even though the solutions that we have now are not the best way to help the Colorado River return exactly all the way back, but at least the Colorado River will not be more damaged. It is better to try something than waiting for nothing or waiting for the end. This is even worse.

Which is more precious between gold and water ? There is nothing more valuable than water in the desert. The Colorado River has been supplying millions people with water in the United States and Mexico since over ten thousand years ago. As I never knew anything else of Colorado except Rocky Mountain, so after I have searched about Colorado River articles, the power of Colorado River makes impression on me, and I want to know more about it. The Colorado River is a main river that is used widely in the western states. It is used for farmlands, cities and also habitats of fish. If we look back to the history of Colorado River, it created the Grand Canyon. And also there were lots of fish (native fish) and lots of water in it. Nowadays, the Colorado River changes. It lacks native fish, but it is instead inhabited by non-native fish. Moreover there is less water of Colorado River - which is the main source of water in Southwestern of the United States where there are lots of populations, but the demand is increasing. The problems that are happening to Colorado River are dams, drought and water sharing rights. These causes make the Colorado River difference from it was. However there are some solutions to these problems. They are the blueprint project, the equally sharing water right, the water agreement, and the appropriate water using.

A dam is the construction which is built to provide water and power for people through the Southwest. A dam usually serves farmers and city dwellers, but it is not good for fish in Colorado River especially native fish as razorback. Why is a dam not good for river’s natural functions and native fish? It is because a dam makes the flow of river change. When the direction of river changes, that makes the river water not go through all of the area than it should. Thus many states have less water because water is blocked by dams. And a dam also makes a limited area for native fish that they get stuck to go as they want. Furthermore, a dam stimulates the growth of algae and some foods which are good for non-native fish such as carp. This causes non-native fish more expanding in the river. Non-native fish is an enemy of native fish because non-native fish eats larvae of native fish which causes the decreasing of native fish in the Colorado River. According to US Department of the Interior (2002, p.2), “today, seven of nine freshwater fish native to the Lower Colorado River are federally listed as endanger, Wild populations of humpback chub, Sonoran topminnow, desert pupfish, woundfin, Colorado pike minnow, bonytail, and razorback.

However, it is not just a dam that makes problems for the Colorado River. A lack of the Colorado River water is another issue right now. According to J. Baird (2004), there is a serious drought among the seven states for six years and “the worst drought in one hundred years has placed unprecedented strains on water users in both the upper and lower parts of the Colorado River basin.” Both combine of drought and the fastest populations growing in the western states, who demand to use more water in each state that really make more lack of water in the Colorado River. Any states, therefore, try to have more water of Colorado River that no longer thrive as in the past.

The above issue leads to the last problem which is water sharing rights among those seven states. Those seven states are Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and California (Joe Baird, 2004). The biggest consumers competing to use the Colorado River are Nevada, Arizona and California. But the most recent water sharing rights agreement are between Southern Nevada and Arizona. 1.25 million Acre-feet is the amount of Colorado River water that Southern Nevada wants from Arizona (Henry Brean, 2004). For this allowance Arizona will get $330 million from Southern Nevada(Henry Brean, 2004). It is really a huge amount of money, but this is what Southern Nevada wants for now and for future. Even though there is not any problem for this pact. But in attempting to exploit more water from the Colorado River in those seven states, thereby the sharing water agreement will not be easy for all those states.

There are many plans and strategies to solve those problems that the Colorado River is encountering nowadays. As I have read lots of Colorado River articles, I do agree with the solutions in those articles which is one from Mike Lee, 2005 that shows the solution that a dam makes. It is a long term project called “ blueprint” at the Hoover dam in Nevada to preserve native fish for next fifty years. There are about twenty six species of native fish which are certainly razorback and another twenty five native fish species. All these native fish will be raised in the hatchery that the project provides and these native fish will be back to the predator-free environment when they grow enough to fend themselves from other fish. In addition to this plan, it also focus “ to prevent the kind of Endangered Species Act Enforcement that has disrupted water deliveries elsewhere in effects to protect endangered fish” (Mike Lee, 2005).The other considering of dams solution is to move a dams off. Some group think about how it is possible to move dams. However, the water and power agencies hope “ blueprint” will work out instead of getting rid of dams. I concur this idea even though this plan will cost a huge budget which is $ 626 million according to Mike Lee, (2005). What I think is; to destroy dams is more worse because the leftovers from dams destruction are just useless tools. No more benefits for anything around. It is just like a trash. And also most of the time when you redo, or repair something, it usually costs you more budget and waste more time. The reality is nobody realizes that. In the other hand, to have a new thing to resolve problems is a good idea for me. Thus, I believe the “ blueprint” project will be such an excellent method to solve whatsoever problems from dams.

For the solution of lacking water from drought, each state tries to ask for more Colorado River water. This commitment is though related to another concern which is sharing water rights. So I will state the solution of these problems together. As each state attempts to get more water as it can. For instance, Southern Nevada wants 1.25 million Acre-feet of Colorado River water with Arizona by giving $330 million to Arizona for this amount of water. “This is the second interstate water agreement into which Nevada has entered this year” (Henry Brean, 2004). And in October there will have another concern of Colorado River water of California. So it is no longer to be individual problems in each state. What it works for these problems. The supervisor in each state will find more ways to expand the sharing of Colorado River water than it does in the past to each state that needs to. And then each state needs to make a compact to share the Colorado River water (Baird, 2004). In addition to solve these two problems, it should be more cooperation for anyone who is involved of Colorado River water. And also it should have a balance demand of using Colorado River water for any reasons. We need to have a right amount in the right area at any given time. These ideas do not just make the Colorado River survive, but it also makes the Colorado River back to the plentiful resource. It will be great if everyone compromises to solve the Colorado River’s problems. As it is a globalization now, any problems can affect to the others eventually. There is no more to say I am individual. I will not face any problems, or I will not have that problem. At the end everyone, and everything on earth will get effects of whatsoever problems on the planet. Thus, everyone should get together to resolve the problems instead of doing on his own.

To sum up, dams, drought and water sharing rights are the most concerning of the Colorado River now. Although there are many ways to figure the Colorado River’s problems out, again everyone must keep working to preserve Colorado River absolutely
for today and also for next generation. It is really significant to save the Colorado River forever as a sustainable resource. The more water you have, the better you can survive.

Effects of divorce

Eve
EAP2 WW 053
Synthesis
Date : 06/20/2005

The amount of divorce is increasing day by day and its result has proved more disadvantages than advantages. These disadvantages are children's psychological problems, children's behavior problems, children development problem, and degenerated society problem. All of them particularly make more problems for children, parents and societies as well.

First of all, divorce can affect children in their mentality. Children tend to be more aggressive, anxious, and angry. They also concern to get divorce and to have a sexual promiscuity when they are adults (Lytle, 1994).

However, children will lose their development if they grow up in a divorce family. Family structure is important to help in children development (Wallerstein and Blakeslee, 1990). It will be a difficult for kids to grow up without a good model to follow.

Finally, divorce is certainly a bad phenomenon in our society. Moody says, "It lowers the moral tone of the entire nation, as society seconds the motion that we are entitled to look first of all after oueselves" (p. 70).

Deforestation in the United States

Eve
EAP2 WW 053
Synthesis
Date : 06/16/2005

The ecosystem in many area of the United States is in danger to reach the extinction. The critic places are Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Oregon and Florida. These states are well known as an environmentally rich area (Donovan, 1993, Connor, 1994). The causes of the problem are a number of houses and farms that get increase more and more. It is also the forest fires that occur by both natural storms and human actions (Donovan, 1993). Moreover, there is another cause that destroys the ecosystem in Florida; which is human and economic development. One example is deforestation from lumber companies (Grant, 1995).

There are many causes that damage the forest in the United States. According to Grant, (1995) "Many Americans believe that National and State parks were established to perserve the original, natural wildlife of each area, but in fact, they are really only protecting historical sights and landmarks." This statement shows that most Americans do not know that what their Naional and State parks really do with their forest. The lumber companies are allowed to cut trees in the National and States parks by the government. This action is a disaster to destroy the ecosystem.

However, there are the other causes that destroy the ecosystem in the United States. First is there are more houses and farmlands. These circumstances make the forest area are placed by houses and farms. Second, the forest in danger by fires either from humans or natural actions. This situation has shown in Oregon according to Donovan, 1993. Final cause is happened in Florida. It is because of the more enterprising businesses that open more in Florida. So the native species are replaced by the foreign plants and animals which are supplies of the enterprising businesses.

I plan on writing that three solutions, that I have shown in articles, should be done about the Colorado River water's problems. First, the long term project called "blueprint" should be worked to resolve all kinds of problems that come from dams right away before thinking to move dams off. For lacking water of Colorado River and water sharing rights problems, these two problems are related. Thus, there is a solution that can solve these issues which is; the supervisor in each state try to find more ways to expand the Colorado River water to cover every state. And also each state must cooperate more instead of fighting sharing water.

I have found a variety of articles that give background information of Colorado River and Colorado issues that happens now, and have found a useful website that shows recently about Colorado River problems with the solutions.

Unanimous vote OKs water pact

Henry Brean of The Las Vegas Review Journal in "Unanimous vote Oks water pact" writes about the unity agreement of the Colorado River committees that allow Southern Nevada to share Colorado River water in next 40 years with Arizona. Southern Nevada has to pay $330 million to Arizona and Southern Nevada will get 1.25 million acre-feet of Colorado River water from 2007 to 2060 (Brean, 2004). He also states about how this agreement has done and how this agreement will work.

This agreement states about how Southern Nevada get through the allowance to share Colorado River water from Arizona. There are many processes and votes of Committees of Colorado River, Arizona and Southern Nevada boards in this whole article.

Eventually Southern Nevada is allowed to use Colorado River water that will transfer from Arizona. However, Southern Nevada will not get more water from Arizona at once or in few years. In the other word, Southern Nevada will get to share Colorado River water from Arizona gradually in 2007 until 2060. Meanwhile Southern Nevada gets water from Arizona, Southern Nevada must pay money to Arizona as they agree in their agreement.

This agreement is the second of seven states in the western that wants to share Colorado River water from now on to future. And so far these issues have been discussed in the western states, there are not any problems for states that want to be a part to use Colorado River water.

It is really great for me that every state that wants to share the water of Colorado River can be allowed to have it. Water has been such a huge power for everything in the world. It can say that if there is no water, it is hard for human being to stay alive on earth. Water has used for many aspects in this world such as in agriculture, industrialization, ecosystem, electricity and so forth. As we know humans or lives in this earth need food, water has a strong effect as a part to produce foods.

In my country (Thailand) known as the land of agriculture, water is so important for my country. We cannot produce more if we lack water. As some years that we have a little rain and that really makes us in trouble. We have low produces. I don’t like to see my country produces low quality of products or no products. I remember some year in my province (Rayong) has had not good taste of durian (It is a kind of fruit in the east of Thailand). The gardener told me because durian has a little water. The quality of durian is much more from water. If durian lacks water, durian will not sweeten as it should.

Most of everything in this world needs water, so it is good to share some water if someone asks for.

Scientist Discover Unexpected Pollutant While Monitoring Fragile Mountain Habitats

What is nitrogen ? How is important of nitrogen ? The author has mentioned about the more accumulate of nitrogen in ecosystem, the worse in environment will be. It has been shown by Fort scientists in Colorado that too much nitrogen in the ecosystem will cause many problems in the environment instead of giving more benefits. As the author gives an example in paragraph 3; decreasing soil fertility, acidification in lakes, increasing algae growth and so forth. The author also shows the causes what can make more concentration of nitrogen in atmosphere. Which are automobiles, power plants and agriculture emissions.

When I read this article I am not surprised at all about this issue. I have known about the impacts of nitrogen since I was in high school. It is just hard to believe for me that nitrogen will make more damages in the environment on earth. For example in paragraph 3, nitrogen can cause stresses in insects, cold and drought. Most people never think or be aware about the effect of nitrogen. They may think more nitrogen must be good because they know plants need nitrogen. And people need more plants on earth right now, so it may not make sense for people why scientists think nitrogen is not good at all. As I do care about the environment on earth, I will try not to make more nitrogen in atmosphere as much as I can. One problem that can cause too much nitrogen is from automobile, so I try not to drive a car if it is not necessary.
