Internet, Employer, Employee and workplace – Needed sporting mentality

Employer can Monitor Employee’s Internet Activity?

The short answer is yes, most employers can indeed monitor employee Internet activity. In fact, many legal experts encourage employers to monitor employee Internet activity as a proactive measure, to protect themselves against potential litigation from their employees. Such harassment and discrimination lawsuits have proven to be very costly for employers who failed to diligently monitor employee Internet activity when the offenses first occurred in the workplace.

While the practice might seem like an invasion of privacy to employees, under most circumstances an employer can monitor employee Internet activity, including e-mails, browsing histories and downloaded files. When many employees are first hired by a company, they are presented with an employee handbook which details their rights and obligations while on company time. Many of these handbooks written or updated after the advent of the Internet specifically mention a “no expectation of privacy” policy when using company-owned computers, servers and printers. “No expectation of privacy” means just that; employees cannot and should not assume their electronic communications will not be examined by their employers at some point in history.

This does not mean that employers have the right to monitor employee Internet activity outside of the work environment, nor can they compel employees to produce e-mails composed on private e-mail providers such as Yahoo or Hot mail. The company legally owns all of the electronic equipment necessary to create and store e-mails on their own servers. It can also examine the caches and browsing histories of all company-owned computers. Some employers can even install special software designed to monitor employee Internet activity in real time from a remote location.

There is a difference between confidentiality and privacy where electronic communications at the workplace are concerned. The employee handbook may say there is no expectation of privacy, but there could be an expectation of confidentiality. In a typical scenario, an employer could discover an email containing very derogatory comments about an employee’s supervisor. The employer most likely would not make the contents of that e-mail public, but he or she may decide to call the employee into his office to discuss the situation which prompted the e-mail. The information gathered when employers monitor employee Internet activity is considered to be the property of the company, but most employers realize that some communications are more sensitive than others.

While monitoring an employee’s Internet activity may seem Big Brotherish to some, it does serve to keep employees more conscientious about their workplace habits. Having access to the Internet and e-mailing services during work hours, even if limited or monitored, does beat the alternative of having no access at all.

A Short Guide About Employer Rights and Responsibilities:

Similar to employees, employers also have their own share of rights and responsibilities in the workplace. As the superior group, they should not think only about their own benefits, but also their employees’ welfare. Some of the rights that employers have in the workplace include:

  • Carry out investigations regarding a specific claim or complaint of an employee.
  • Terminate any employee at his own will as long as he presents valid reasons.
  • Employers have the right not to pay employees who do not meet the performance expectations of the company.
  • Employers may request complaining employees to present documents, files, or witnesses to support their complaint.
  • Employers may conduct background checks as long as the information being gathered is necessary for the benefit of the company as a whole.

Just because they are in power, it doesn’t mean that employers can do whatever they want with their employees. Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employees have the right to be treated equally by everyone in the workplace, and that includes employers. The Equal Pay Act states that employees are entitled to receive their full monthly salaries together with other employment benefits from their employers. Aside from the two given above, the following are also some of the numerous responsibilities employers are required to do for their employees’ benefit:

  • Employers should treat and consider every applicant equally in the hiring process.
  • The workplace should be kept safe and secured at all times.
  • Discriminatory practices and any forms of harassment or assault should be prohibited inside the workplace.
  • Employers have the responsibility to write an employment handbook to instruct new employees about the nature of their job.
  • They should provide reasonable accommodations and considerations to disabled employees, as well as workers who are on-leave due to their sickness or the illness or death of their relatives.
  • Employers should be knowledgeable on how to terminate or fire employees without messing up with their legal rights.

As company owners, most employers earn thousands of dollars because of their employees. In relation to that, employers should learn to consider them as part of the company. They should look for ways on how employees can perform better in the workplace. They may conduct seminars, trainings, and lectures to keep their employees on par with the rest of the world.  Aside from improving the quality and performance of their workforce, employers should treat their employees fairly so as to cultivate passion and loyalty in their jobs.

How Workplace Bullying Happen and their Effects on Employees:

One apparent reason why most kids hate going to school, or why many adults didn’t find their school life very amusing, are because of some terrible experiences with the school bully. Bullies are prominent characters of school life, but they must not have a place in the workplace. Employment calls for professionalism, and being a bully towards employees is not something a professional does.

However, workplace bullying is different from the bullying some people experienced in school. This kind of hostility refers to repeated and unnecessary actions that are directed to an employee or a group of workers. The primary aim of workplace bullying is to intimidate the victims, thus making them feel uncomfortable. Bullying also degrades, offends or humiliates the person.

Bullies show hostility through personal actions, writing, or even through the phone or e-mail. They create an impression of fear and defenselessness to their target, which eventually affects their target’s attitude towards work.

Some cases of bullying occur between a superior and the lower employees because he wants to illustrate control and authority over them. A boss’ tough or demanding exterior is often mistaken as bullying, but he just really wants to bring out the challenging side of his employees and make them perform better. In reality, a bigger percentage of bullying happens between employees themselves.

Some actions that are regarded as bullying are:

  • Unnecessary and invalid criticism
  • Blaming someone without valid justification
  • Using bad language to talk or describe an employee
  • Intentional exclusion or isolation
  • Shouting at the person
  • Doing practical jokes to the same person every time
  • Excessive monitoring
  • Constant mockery
  • Physical abuse
  • Unequal assignment of tasks
  • Denial of a deserving promotion or unjust demotion
  • Workplace bullying harassment affects their victims in more ways than one.
  • They develop stress or post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • They start to have self-esteem issues.
  • Their depression increases and self-blame occurs.
  • Financial problems arise because they prefer to miss work rather than get bullied.

When workplace bullying is overlooked, it may lead to corporate or institutional bullying, wherein such actions are already widely-accepted throughout the company. To avoid this, employees who experienced bullying, or those who witnessed it, are encouraged to report the incident to their company’s HR department. Victims of the bullying may also confront the bully first and probably agree on some terms. If that’s not helpful, then that’s the time to let authorities know about the situation.

Aiding Verbal Harassment in the Workplace:

It is important to have a healthy work environment as it encourages productivity and generating of ideas that will further help the company. For this reason, employers must make sure that a peaceful environment is maintained in the workplace and that his employees are not threatened or harassed by his supervisors and co-workers.

To better impose the measures in preventing a hostile work environment, employers are encouraged to consult with an employment attorney and draft a company policy that will address such issues in accordance with the state employment laws.

Also, employers must cautiously handle claims of harassment by his employee in order to make sure that everyone is treated fairly. He, or the company personnel assigned, must investigate the allegations and determine whether harassment was really committed.

The following acts constitute harassment:

  • Inappropriate physical contact that is sexual in nature
  • Creating a hostile work environment once an indecent proposal has been rejected
  • Offering of deals that are advantageous to the worker in exchange for sexual favors
  • Sexually suggestive comments and slurs as well as graphic and written materials that are sexual in nature

The above are just some of the things that employees must be careful about. Once confronted by these situations, they must gather the evidence they can and file a complaint regarding the incident. Keep in mind that the aggressor cannot retaliate against you once the complaint has been filed with the concerned department/personnel.

If an employee’s complaint has been rejected to cover-up the harasser’s actions, the victim must then find an expert employment attorney and gather evidence that would further strengthen his claims of harassment. Pieces of evidence may include a video or audio recordings of the incident, an eyewitness account, or the graphic or written material itself that was used to harass the employee.

Employers can be named as defendants even if they did not directly harass the employer. Complainants must prove that they failed to take necessary actions to punish the guilty party and so, in a way, they are condoning harassment in the company. To avoid this, they must strictly impose the company rules on harassment and conduct seminars that should spread the awareness on harassment.

Tsunami – Protect it

What are tsunamis?

off the east coast of Honshu, Japan

2011/03/13 01:26:01 (UTC)
Preliminary Magnitude: 6.6
Latitude: 35.605 Longitude: 142.038
Location: off the east coast of Honshu, Japan

Tsunamis are large ocean waves generated by major earthquakes beneath the ocean floor or major landslides into the ocean. Tsunamis caused by nearby earthquakes may reach the coast within minutes. When the waves enter shallow water, they may rise to several feet or, in rare cases, tens of feet, striking the coast with devastating force. People on the beach or in low coastal areas need to be aware that a tsunami could arrive within minutes after a severe earthquake.

The tsunami danger period can continue for many hours after a major earthquake. Tsunamis also may be generated by very large earthquakes far away in other areas of the ocean. Waves caused by these earthquakes travel at hundreds of miles per hour, reaching the coast several hours after the earthquake. The International Tsunami Warning System monitors ocean waves after any Pacific earthquake with a magnitude greater than 6.5. If waves are detected, warnings are issued to local authorities who can order the evacuation of low-lying areas if necessary.

Why prepare for tsunamis?

All tsunamis are potentially, if rarely, dangerous. Twenty-four tsunamis have caused damage in the United States and its territories in the past 200 years. Since 1946, six tsunamis have killed more than 350 people and caused significant property damage in Hawaii, Alaska, and along the West Coast. Tsunamis have also occurred in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

When a tsunami comes ashore, it can cause great loss of life and property damage. Tsunamis can travel upstream in coastal estuaries and rivers, with damaging waves extending farther inland than the immediate coast. A tsunami can occur during any season of the year and at any time, day or night.

How can I protect myself from a tsunami?

If you are in a coastal community and feel the shaking of a strong earthquake, you may have only minutes until a tsunami arrives. Do not wait for an official warning. Instead, let the strong shaking be your warning, and, after protecting yourself from falling objects, quickly move away from the water and to higher ground. If the surrounding area is flat, move inland. Once away from the water, listen to a local radio or television station or NOAA Weather Radio for information from the Tsunami Warning Centers about further action you should take.

Even if you do not feel shaking, if you learn that an area has experienced a large earthquake that could send a tsunami in your direction, listen to a local radio or television station or NOAA Weather Radio for information from the Tsunami Warning Centers about action you should take. Depending on the location of the earthquake, you may have a number of hours in which to take appropriate action.

What is the best source of information in a tsunami situation?

As part of an international cooperative effort to save lives and protect property, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service operates two tsunami warning centers: the West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center (WC/ATWC) in Palmer, Alaska, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. The WC/ATWC serves as the regional Tsunami Warning Center for Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and California. The PTWC serves as the regional Tsunami Warning Center for Hawaii and as a national/international warning center for tsunamis that pose a Pacific-wide threat.

Some areas, such as Hawaii, have Civil Defense Sirens. Turn on your radio or television to any station when the siren is sounded and listen for emergency information and instructions. Maps of tsunami-inundation areas and evacuation routes can be found in the front of local telephone books in the Disaster Preparedness Info section.

Tsunami warnings are broadcast on local radio and television stations and on NOAA Weather Radio. NOAA Weather Radio is the prime alerting and critical information delivery system of the National Weather Service (NWS). NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts warnings, watches, forecasts, and other hazard information 24 hours a day on more than 650 stations in the 50 states, adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific territories.

The NWS encourages people to buy a weather radio equipped with the Specific Area Message Encoder (SAME) feature. This feature automatically alerts you when important information is issued about tsunamis or weather-related hazards for your area. Information on NOAA Weather Radio is available from your local NWS office or online.

Carry the radio with you when you go to the beach and keep fresh batteries in it.


Tsunami Generator Will Help Protect Against Future Catastrophe

A unique wave-generating machine that mimics the activity of real-life tsunamis with unprecedented realism has been used successfully in an Oxfordshire laboratory.

The simulator has copied the behavior of the first massive wave of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami that hit Thailand.

Developed and built with Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funding, the tsunami generator will improve understanding of how tsunamis behave.

This will aid development of more effective evacuation guidelines for parts of the world potentially at risk from future tsunamis. It will also help improve the design of buildings in susceptible areas so they are better able to withstand the impact of such events.

The innovative new facility has been developed jointly by EPICENTRE (the Earthquake and People Interaction Centre), based at University College London, (UCL) and consulting engineers HR Wallingford, at whose headquarters it is located.

Mounted in a 45 metre-long wave channel, the tsunami generator uses a pneumatic (i.e. air-driven) system comprising a fan and control valves to suck up water into a tank and then release it in a controlled way. This makes the facility fundamentally different from all other wave simulators worldwide, which generally use pistons to produce waves by pushing at the water.

The new pneumatic technique has a range of advantages over a piston-based approach. In particular, tests by UCL researchers at HR Wallingford have shown that it can reproduce the draw-down phenomenon that is characteristic of ‘trough-led’ tsunamis where the sea is sucked out first before rushing back towards the shoreline.*

Within the wave channel, or ‘flume’, the waves created by the tsunami generator are directed over a model coastal slope, enabling their behaviour and effects to be studied in detail.

Specifically, tests with this facility will be used to enhance understanding of the water flows and forces unleashed by tsunamis. This will enable buildings and infrastructure in vulnerable parts of the world to be designed and built in ways that help them withstand these destructive events.

Moreover, because this understanding will make it easier to predict the behaviour of tsunamis at shorelines and when they move inland, the tsunami generator will make it possible to strengthen emergency and contingency planning at regional, national and individual community level.

“Although the basic concept is actually quite simple, this is the only facility that has ever been able to replicate the draw-down phenomenon in the laboratory,” says Dr Tiziana Rossetto, EPICENTRE’s Director. “We’ve already used the generator to mimic the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami at 1:75scale. The data gathered should be validated and then made available to the scientific community within the next two years.”

The tsunami generator was designed, built and tested between 2007 and 2009. EPSRC support was supplemented by additional funding from HR Wallingford and a studentship supported by consulting engineers Arup.

The aim is to make the tsunami generator available for use by other researchers from all over the world.


When an earthquake fault displaces the overlying water and causes a tsunami, waves propagate outwards from the source. Because one of the oceanic plates involved in the earthquake moves upwards and the other moves downwards, these waves are led by crests on one side of the fault and by troughs on the other. For example, in the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean, Thailand was hit by a ‘trough-led’ wave whilst Sri Lanka was hit by a ‘crest-led’ wave.

The tsunami generator can also create longer-wavelength waves than conventional, piston-based wave generators, making the waves much more like real tsunamis. Piston-based wave generators do not have the length of stroke needed to reproduce the entire wavelength of a tsunami, even at laboratory scale. Tsunamis can have wavelengths of several hundred kilometres in the open ocean.

Tsunami waves can cause extensive loss of both life and infrastructure. Generated by earthquakes, underwater landslides, volcanic eruptions or major debris slides, tsunamis travel across seas and oceans with quite small vertical displacements, but then shoal up dramatically in coastal and nearshore depths.

The tsunami triggered by the 8.8 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Chile on 27 February 2010 led to tsunami warnings being issued across the Asia-Pacific region. In Chile itself, waves over 2.5 metres high were reported, causing a number of deaths and substantial damage to infrastructure and property. On the Chilean side, the tsunami was crest-led, whereas towards Hawaii, for instance, there was a small trough before the crest.

The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean was triggered by an undersea earthquake off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. This tsunami actually consisted of three to four successive wave peaks in total. It is estimated that nearly a quarter of a million people lost their lives in the tragedy.


Coastal Protection

In populated areas, the best idea seems to be the use of seawalls in front of ports and cities. In Patong Beach in Thailand during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the seawall in front of the beach dissipated much of the energy of the tsunami and prevented the city from being destroyed. Even though the flooding because of a rise in sea level wasn’t stopped by the seawall, the force of the tsunami was, and very few casualties resulted in the area. The only areas of the city that were seriously damaged were the areas directly behind openings in the seawall designed to allow access to the beach 6. The conclusions from this report indicate that it is best to have walls offshore, with continuous protection and no holes. One design for a wall that could be implemented in ports and coastal cities is the design used in Providence, RI for the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier. This wall has three openings for ships to pass that can be closed with little warning for the protection of the harbor. Fox Point has protected the city of Providence from the floods that used to ensue destruction every time a hurricane struck, but since the barrier was built, the problem has been alleviated 21. A wall that both allows the free flow of marine traffic into and out of the port and protects the city from floods and tsunamis serves as a good balance between the necessity for protection and the need for accessibility. While the walls do not need to be taller than the tsunami to be effective, the taller a wall is, the larger the column of water stopped will be. Seawalls do not, however, completely protect a city 11 and should be used in conjunction with other methods of protection, especially trees on the coastline and dikes in rivers.

One of the most effective methods of protection from a tsunami is trees. Some villages in India, for example, had minimal casualties in the 2004 tsunami because they had planted trees along the coastline. The village of Naluvedapathy, for example, was protected by about a kilometer of trees and suffered no direct damage from the tsunami 17. Even though this would be too many trees for many areas of the coastline, a moderate thickness of trees, especially those with deep roots and dense coverage, can protect effectively against tsunamis. Mangroves, it appears, are especially good at protecting areas from tsunamis 22, so a beach with mangroves on the shore and rows of trees behind it would be well-suited to withstand a tsunami. Our plan is to plant and help sustain mangroves along empty coastlines where there is little tourism. In areas where there is tourism, the plan is to encourage the planting of low trees in a band that extends virtually uninterrupted throughout the entire shore. While these trees do not protect as effectively as mangroves, planting these would be a compromise between having accessible beaches for tourists and having protected coasts. This band of trees would have a positive effect on tourism too, for it adds to the natural beauty of the areas and provides shade. Another mechanism for preventing a tsunami from exerting its full force on the coast is to encourage the growth of coral reefs directly offshore from coasts in a way that they form an undersea wall of coral. While this is not completely effective, it has been shown to reduce the impact force of the tsunami 22. While this would only be applicable to certain parts of Peru where the water is warm enough, it would make a great method of protection for Micronesia, as well as an extra attraction for tourists.

Summary of Design Plan

Coastal Cities and Ports:
-Trees along coastline

Non-urban areas and Tourist beaches
-Development of coral reef
-Planting of extensive mangrove forests
-Trees along coastline


Tsunami-Proof Building
One of the key factors to minimizing damage caused by tsunamis is to build structures that can withstand the damage of such storms.  In light of past damage assessed from tsunamis and related storms, engineers from around the world have compiled several different lists of basic requirements in a “tsunami-proof” building.

Text Box: Tsunami wave in Japan

General lessons include:

Elevated Structures

When designing our “perfect building,” we will be elevating the structure above a solid but open foundation to help alleviate the pressures from built up levels of water.  Many of the buildings in the Sri Lanka tsunami had their back walls blown out due to the growing pressure from the water as it filled the buildings (Grose). Many of the building foundations also had scarring from water that funneled beneath them, accelerating from the impact.  Also, in foundations of sand, whirlpools formed at building corners, which scarred and undermined the foundations even more (Minor).  In addition, multi-level buildings allowed the people inside to reach heights above the wave crests to reduce casualties (Grose).

Proper Materials

Text Box: Reinforced concrete walls in Thailand When comparing building materials, it was found that reinforced concrete structures were more likely to survive the wave forces brought by a tsunami, as compared to masonry and wood structures, which did not fare well at all (Natural Hazards).  However, even brick buildings, when properly reinforced, have been found to be effective in storm situations as well.  Our perfect building would be ideally made of a material, or hybrid material, that is as effective at resisting wave forces as reinforced concrete, but less costly and more readily available in areas at high risk for tsunamis.

Orientation is Key
Text Box: Harry Yeh, Civil Engineer at the Hinsdale Wave Research Lab, tests the impact of tsunami waves on these models It was found that walls that faced the ocean, allowing for a perpendicular impact from the tsunami waves, sustained a considerably higher amount of damage than walls orientated in the direction of water flow (Grose).  Orientation is also important due to the massive amounts of debris that can be found in the flow resulting from tsunamis.  In fact, more tsunami victims are injured or die from debris pushed along by the tsunami waves than by any other secondary cause (Dalrymple).  The orientation of certain buildings with respect to the flow of coastal waters, and with respect to other buildings in the city, can minimize the debris that gets loose in a storm and has the potential to harm or kills humans (Grose).

Gone With the Wind

(Simple refugee home built from bamboo)
Research has found that once windows or doors are damaged in a building, it sets off a chain reaction that escalates the damage done to the structure.  The immediate result of a failed door or window is an increase in internal pressure, which in turn causes an overall roof uplift pressure (Minor).  This chain reaction continues, with the removal of the roof sheathing, wind and rain entering the building, and the progressive failure of the building frame itself.  This compounded exposure greatly increases the cost of damage, and makes recovery from such natural disasters much more difficult (Minor).

So…What do we do?

Our team plans on creating the optimal, “utopian” city that lies at risk of a tsunami attack.  To fulfill this dream, we must design the city and all its individual components to serve the most effective purpose against the forces of a tsunami.  In the past, another MIT team came up with a protocol design for cost efficient homes designed to help the people of Sri Lanka live in tsunami-resistant homes (Brehm). I will be taking this design pattern and modeling my own after it, making any necessary changes when accounting for local materials, differences in cost, or any other necessary design changes.

The Protocol

The protocol design is a wood or bamboo home solidified by 4 concrete and rebar columns, each about 3meters wide. Each costing at around $1200, these 400 square feet homes would also be built on concrete or wooden blocks around 1 to 2 feet above the ground in order to allow high waters to pass under the home instead of knocking it over. In addition to this “open foundation” design, the floor plan of the house itself is also open floor, once again allowing powerful ocean waves to pass through the home and not knock it flat.

Changes in Agriculture in China : A New Dawn

The agricultural economic scenario of China has been going through continuous changes with the shifting state of affairs in the general financial system of the country in the past few decades. It has been a difficult task for the government of China to accommodate the masses, their aspirations and the implications that have come with embracing globalization.

Changes in Agriculture in China

In contemporary history, China primarily is a nation state that is associated with the ‘Red Army’; second only to Russia. With the coming of the communist regime, all channels of trade in the country were taken over by the government, and dictated by the Public Distribution System (PDS). Despite the imposition of regulations and laws, thousands of farmers hoarded pulses and other agricultural produce, and sold them through “hush-hush” commercial conduits.

Moreover, one of the major breakthroughs in this sector came in the early 1980s when the Chinese Government took on the major task of sanctioning all such private mediums of business, and making government procurement a voluntary option for the farmers. By 1985, all such methods were disbanded, and self-employment in all fields of work, especially agriculture, became a mainstay. This step of market liberalization of agricultural products resulted in a boom in farming output as it also relaxed the ‘grow grain everywhere’ policy preached by Mao Zedong. Instead, farmers could decide what crops to grow according to climate conditions and market feasibilities.

Changes in Agriculture in China : A New Dawn

Cash crops like cotton, tea, jute, oil seeds, hemp and sugarcane received a boost, and different villages that were earlier isolated “islet-like” economies became extremely interdependent, spurring the exchange of labor, capital, and modern ideas for cultivation. This gave rise to the creation of cooperatives and citizen-owned business initiatives. In a few years, a majority of the agricultural brotherhood flourished and was released from the miseries of poverty.

Agricultural trade subsequently evened out with the stabilization of its market forces that were resposible for farm produce and good harvests in the latter half of the 1990s. However, as farming became more mechanized globally, and the world population began to grow at a stupendous rate, focus on the international market increased. This focus later became an efficient deliverance of wares, but from a little arable land with compromised quality. Perceptibly, this led to the problem of surplus commodity in the domestic agricultural picture of China, and forced it to tackle the dual problems of capital-intensive competence and rendering fine-quality goods.

At this point in time, the government brought out policy reforms concerning structural changes in China’s agriculture. They merged the pursuit of unrelenting growth of the quantity of production with the need for quality, by implementing various projects that helped offset surplus crops and animal by-products with the deficient ones, and investing in value-adding techniques such food-processing and packaging. The government focused on giving the local peasants direct experience with the import-export prospects, and encouraged township enterprises that meticulously calculated demand and the nature to augment private profits and thereby kept incessant superfluous merchandise-production at bay.

A major impact on China’s agriculture came with the country’s accession with the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001. As international prices of grain were much lower than the local prices, the farmers of China were brought up to speed with the changes and supported to use machinery on the fields and make them capital-intensive. Surplus labor was subsequently absorbed into the growing secondary and tertiary sectors. Also, organic farming took widespread root in China to tap the vital US organic marketplace and large customer base, as well as to meet food safety standards, aid health benefits, and infuse cash flow into rural farming families.

China has, therefore, steadily blossomed from a country of multi-level community farming to a global player in agricultural produce. The next major change in China’s agriculture is predicted by experts to meet the twin crisis of climate change and the country’s ever-increasing population against its severely constrained accessibility of arable land. Policy recommendations to make up for such a predicament include educating the farmers and garnering their active participation in decisions concerning land reforms, adapting agricultural practices to changed climatic patterns with the provision of affordable technology for desired adjustment, and continuing financial support through such tough times.

What Is the “American Dream”? – Simplified answer

The term “American Dream” is used in a number of ways, but essentially the American Dream is an idea which suggests that all people can succeed through hard work, and that all people have the potential to live happy, successful lives. Many people have expanded upon or refined the definition of the American Dream, and this concept has also been subject to a fair amount of criticism. Many people believe that the structure of American society belies the idealistic goal of the American Dream, pointing to examples of inequality rooted in class, race, and ethnic origin which suggest that the American Dream is not attainable for all.

The idea of an American Dream is older than the United States, dating back to the 1600s, when people began to come up with all sorts of hopes and aspirations for the new and largely unexplored continent. Many of these dreams focused on owning land and establishing prosperous businesses which would theoretically generate happiness, and some people also incorporated ideals of religious freedom into their American Dreams. During the Great Depression, several people wrote about an American Dream, codifying the concept and entrenching it in American society.

American Dream Today

  • The spider is symbolic of female creative energy, wisdom and learning. In Native American culture, dream catchers are particularly important to hang over cribs in order to protect babies from bad dreams or “bad air” (bad energy).
  • Nevertheless, the Navajo Native Americans played a major part in American efforts during World War II, both as soldiers and functioning as the famous Navajo code talkers. Today, Navajo Native Americans maintain a rich culture based on a shared history and dreams for a strong future.

Ideal American Dream

  • Many of these dreams focused on owning land and establishing prosperous businesses which would theoretically generate happiness, and some people also incorporated ideals of religious freedom into their American Dreams. During the Great Depression, several people wrote about an American Dream, codifying the concept and entrenching it in American society.
  • The spider is symbolic of female creative energy, wisdom and learning. In Native American culture, dream catchers are particularly important to hang over cribs in order to protect babies from bad dreams or “bad air” (bad energy).

American Dream Money

  • Passed by the United States Congress and signed by President Jimmy Carter in 1977, and frequently re-crafted since, the Community Reinvestment Act was designed to eliminate the practice of “redlining” in making real estate loans and to thus extend the so-called American Dream of home ownership to all Americans. The law and the regulations promulgated under it essentially required that banks extend credit in those communities where they accepted deposits.
  • Death of a Salesman is a seminal piece of the modern American stage, following a salesman, Willy Loman, through his past and present as he struggles with the failure of the American Dream. Ultimately, Willy sacrifices his own life to give his son, Biff, a chance to realize the dream through the insurance money.

American Dream Demonstration

  • It’s not dedicated to war heroes or to one remarkable person, but to all those who work hard to help make America great. It’s a celebration of people working for the American Dream. No other holidays are centered around the average person. Some schools do not begin the new school year until after Labor Day.
  • A few notable bills passed, however. This included the Taking Back Our Streets Act, the American Dream Restoration Act, giving a $500 rebate per child, the Job Creation and Wage Enhancement Act, which cut capital gains, and gave a number of small business incentives, and the National Security Restoration Act, which cut back the number of US troops serving under the United Nation.

Typical American Dream

  • Some programs are available only to low-income households, while others provide support for buyers choosing property in developing areas. In the United States, the American Dream Down Payment Act provides money to state and local housing authorities for qualifying buyers.
  • The amount of money made by a robber baron was often seen as fulfillment and inspiration for the Americandream. However, most robber barons did not start at the lowest strata of society.
