EPA Essay
Life is a continual learning process, which I’ve had a long journey of becoming aware of me needing to develop better ways of apprenticeship. For me, obtaining a higher education will open many doors of opportunity. Everyone should have personal goals in life in order to prosper and succeed in every area of life. Coming from Oakland, Ca, the high crime city with a deteriorating education system and tough living automatically had put me and future generations on a low scale. From seeing so much crime and poverty, I moved to TX for a new life. Being a Collin student, I pray to achieve all of my goals on which I am currently trying to pursue and obtain. Personally, goals are needed to be a successful member of society, and attending CCC I also hope to gain a more transparent positive image of myself, by building my personal growth, along with achieving excellence in my academics. The goals I want to achieve as a Collin student are to obtain an Associate in Hospitality, while taking Pre Req classes for funeral Service, so that I can transfer into the University of Central Oklahoma ‘s Bachelors Mortuary Science program. To make a splash in this society, a diploma is an important achievement. To me being a great student means that I must learn as much as possible from my instructors and seek additional help by looking for tutor resources. Learning new knowledge will heighten my values and help me to find my way, which will lead to having my dream businesses: funeral home and hotel, plus I’ll be able to give back to my community and help other strive to complete the goals as well. According to the University of Oklahoma academic integrity, is honesty and responsibility in scholarship. Words are meaningful and powerful; therefore I must use them with truthfulness and responsibly. I must maintain high standards and follow the rules, even when no one is watching.…...

...Is the Environmental Protection Agency protecting us or is it smothering us? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an agency of the U.S. government that is tasked with the goal of protecting the health of the U.S. population and environment. Over the past decade the EPA has increased its regulations dramatically. Over the past two years the EPA has started to pose heavy fines that result in closings on companies that violate their regulations. The Environmental Protection Agency has been in existence since1970. President Richard Nixon was the president who created the EPA after a stringent study of the environment of the U.S. and the effect it was having on the health of the citizens. The main reason that the EPA was created was to monitor Greenhouse gases and the effect of them on the Ozone layer. Every President from Richard Nixon on has either tolerated or out rightly supported the EPA. The Clean Air Act allowed the EPA to start to monitor these greenhouse gases from both mobile and stationary sources, for the first time on January 2, 2011. Although the EPA has only legally been allowed to monitor the greenhouse gases and other pollutions since January 2, 2011; the EPA has been handing out regulations and warning businesses for the past decade. Oil refineries have been hit the heaviest in terms of regulation. Most oil refineries argue that the EPA regulations decrease both the quality and quantity of the oil that they drill out the reservoirs every day. Other......

Corruption at the Fda and Epa

...of the century, the number of people on Earth is expected to increase from the current 6.7 billion to 10 billion. How can we feed the growing population without further degrading the environment?” (Ronald, 2011, p. 1). While this is seemingly a valid argument, at what costs are we feeding the world? The Root of the Problem The underlying cause of the corruption in the FDA and USDA are the governmental appointees to head these organizations. The issues seemingly began under the first Bush administration and have compounded with each new administration since. In a blog found on Hub Pages, there is a chart that lists just a sample of these appointees. The chart reads as follows; Former Monsanto Appointees to the FDA, USDA, and EPA |Monsanto Position |Individual |Federal Position | |Senior Vice President for Clinical Affairs at |Michael A.

Business Ethics and the Epa

...After accessing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), I decided to go back in the past a little bit and find a news release that was issued to a company or state for violating the EPA Laws concerning social and environment responsibility. The article the I picked was released in July 20, 1990 on a company called Syntex. What occurred was that “A settlement has been reached in the lawsuit concerning the cleanup of Times Beach and other dioxin-contaminated sites in eastern Missouri. The consent decree between the United States, the State of Missouri, and the Syntex entities implements the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Record of Decision, which was issued September 29, 1988. This decision calls for incineration at Times Beach of dioxin-contaminated soils from 28 sites, including Times Beach, in eastern Missouri. Times Beach has been a ghost town since 1983, when it was purchased by the State of Missouri, using Superfund monies. The agreement, lodged in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, calls for Syntex to implement the remedy set forth in EPA's Record of Decision. Syntex will demolish and dispose of non-contaminated structures and debris in uncontaminated areas of Times Beach. That activity is scheduled to begin after the consent decree is entered by the court” [ (Unk, 1990) ]. So has you can see the Syntex corporation did a lot of damage to the environment and the surrounding community. Syntex could have worried about their...

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary film making styles and which focuses more on the evolution of a theme or an idea. A photographic essay is an attempt to cover a topic with a linked series of photographs; it may or may not have an accompanying text or......

Impact of Epa

...Impact of EPAs regulations on U.S. economy. Environmental Protection Agency: EPA, is an agency of the U.S. federal government which was created for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment. Since its inception in 1970, EPA wrote countless number of regulations. Many of them are controversial, and led to closure of numerous businesses and laying-off thousands of people. It appears that this agency hurt our economy. I strongly disagree. When looking at world economy as a whole, I concluded that there's deliberate and systematic plan of replacing low paying, dangerous and harmful jobs in favor of high paying and safer ones in our country. EPAs regulations are one of many governments tools designed to position USA at the top of the world economic pyramid and to keep our environment healthy for future generations. It may sound controversial but it is a smart and logical move. Every company which produces goods, comprise of specific people performing different tasks. There are visionary peoples and entrepreneurs whose ideas are turn into products by developers and engineers. Ordinary factory workers produce those products, which are then delivered to retailers who sell them to customers. Some of those people have high paying, clean and safe work. Others earn low wages, and often work in harmful conditions in a factory which pollutes environment and consumes a lots of energy. Different stages of production......

Toxicology Epa

...As the director of the Federal EPA, I would set in motion three simple rulings that I alone, with no Congressional oversight, would come up with. Since Congress abated it’s role of developing the laws of this nation within the realm of the EPA, and since in this day and age it is acceptable to act in defiance of Congressional inquiry, my changes would be far reaching and highly effective. My first ruling as administrator of the EPA, would be the destruction of all Monsanto research and production facilities as they are the devil incarnate and destroy all that they see and touch. Their man-made poison and their man-made foods will no longer be allowed to pollute our bodies, the air we breathe, nor the soil and water that we use for our crops. Their company executives will be publicly executed and company assets seized with all funds being deposited to the U.S. Treasury in a fund for family farm subsidies. All of their lower level employees will be banished to Canada or China. Secondly, to protect the air and water quality, all self-loathing Democrats will be required to live up to their wishes of everyone driving fuel efficient cars by actually providing the funds to do so out of their own bank accounts. Taxpayer funds will not be used for government car-owning schemes. There will be a sliding scale, depending on asset worth, as to how many of these vehicles the government will force these people to purchase for the betterment of their countrymen. Said vehicles will be......
