...As you know, factories usually bring pollution. If this factory is not managed very effectively and efficiently according to specific rules, it's prone to polluting the local air and water. What's more, factories usually make noise. Beside clean drinkable water and fresh air, an ideal community should be quiet. If the factory cannot maintain this situation to the community, it will not last long. A factory that is too noisy or pollutes too much will eventually be relocated to a new area. On the other hand, a factory could bring a lot of benefits to the community. So I would support the plan to build a factory to my community for all the reasons I will describe below. First of all, the factory's construction will surely improve the local infrastructure. To run smoothly, the factory will have to have a steady, reliable supply of water and electricity. Some old pipes will be changed, and some facilities will be renovated. The residents' living standard get improved as a result of these widespread changes, an important benefit in Arroz e Feijao, where many people do not have access to clean water. Secondly, to make the employee commute more convenient, the local roads will have to be rebuilt and broadened, resulting in improved public transportation. The town's residents can take a public bus to go shopping or go to work. As a result, air pollution and fuel consumption might be reduced. Most important, a factory's establishment will bring up a lot of employment......

Shui Factory

...with its future orientation. They feel the short term expectations have not been met and are considering closing the factory. Schui’s leadership is concerned with societal collectivism because of the view of western culture in their country. Both parties are assertive on their objectives in regards to their stake in the company. Explain which of these differences is most central to the issue at hand and why: I feel the power distance is the most central issue because if one side is unwilling to relinquish some of their power it could damage business relations on multiple levels. Forcing Ray to incorporate more technology could damage relationships in the local community and be viewed as western greed in the region. This may make it difficult to do any other business in the region. Alternatively, by not allowing for financial growth could cause Shui fabrics to pull out of the region and increase the unemployment rate even further. This could be detrimental to the local community. Develop a strategy for addressing the situation and explain how it would help appease Ray's boss back in the U.S: The best possible solution would be to develop a subsidiary company in the US and import supplies from China. Shui would import a small group Chinese workers to supervise operations and learn the new sophisticated technology’s to expedite the ROI. The workers would act as a counterpart for Ray and ensure the same quality is being produced as it is in china.. Explain what......

Factory Foods

...Food: From the Factory to Your Table By Alexander Nunez Let me paint you a picture… “In a local supermarket in Anywhere, USA, lies aisles of products waiting to be picked up and purchased by a mother to take home for tonight’s dinner. In this case, a whole chicken and vegetables for a veggie stir-fry. She then drives home to prepare the meal for her loving family. She washes it and begins to prepare it for cooking, cleaning it with vinegar, then salt, and covering it with plentiful of seasoning. After that, she grabs a pan and puts it onto the kitchen stove. The chicken is then placed onto a baking pan, covered with aluminum foil, and thrown into the oven, set to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the pan was heated up, the vegetables were put into the pan, alongside a dosage of olive oil. Moving the pan back and forth, the vegetables were flying high in mid-air in a sizzling mist.” ***ONE HOUR LATER*** “After an hour of waiting, the scent of the chicken grew stronger every passing minute, as well as the stir fry sitting in the pan, still sizzling. The mother calls her kids to the dinner table. She takes the chicken out of the oven and rids the aluminum foil, revealing a golden brown chicken glistening in the light. The stir fry is taken out of the pan and is put on a large plate. Her husband arrives home from work, being greeted with hugs and kisses from his children. He and his children sit at the dinner table awaiting the arrival of the family meal. Out from the......

Factory Farming

...Factory Farming Abstract Factory farming is the mass production of pigs, chickens, turkeys, and cows to be slaughtered and made into food. Many activists and organizations have attempted to reduce the problem of factory farming, but it is still a long way from being fixed. Factory farms are used to produce everyday products like bacon, pork, steak, chicken nuggets, milk, cheese, etc. The cost of buying a burger at a local McDonalds is around one to three dollars. If companies were forced by legislation and government officials to practice proper farming techniques, the price of your beloved McDonald’s hamburger will be sure to rise. This could cause a brief stage of net losses for food manufacturing companies. I think it is mandatory to incur these extra expenses for the sake of humanity and animal rights. A small loss in profits is far less important than the pain and suffering these animals have to deal with on a daily basis. In this research paper I will discuss the ethical dilemmas and the conditions of the factory farms, as well as solutions to the problem of animals not having the proper rights. Main Points Animals come in all different shapes and sizes. Society debates how to classify some animals. Scientist view animals as operating equipment. Businessmen see them as commodities. Religious advocates classify them as God’s gift to us. And the majority of Americans see them as food. In America we cannot keep our minds off of cheap......

...It can be denied that factories have a great importance of poople’s lives. Nowadays, there is a common controversy about where factories should be constructed. In this essay i illustrate not only several shortcomings such as traffic jam, air pollution and excessive noise, but also a few advantages such as job opportunities and cheap access to products. I believe that the disadvantages outweigt the benefits, so i strongly oppose that factories are built near my community. Starting with the advantages, First of all; a factory or an industry area can cause bigger traffic problem which is also called traffic jam. For instance; people who are employee of the factory try to reach their working place every morning. This occurs more cars they use. Although the traffic demand of the road adversaly increases, the capacity of the road is still limited. So short distances take longer trip times. Secondy; people have to face the possible air pollution because of the factory. For example; when the factory is built, it starts to manufacture goods and proporties. It is usual that the factory generates chemical and biological substances which are extremely hazardous. It releases these harmful substances into the atmosphere and environment. As a result; it causes harm to humans and the environment. Thirdly; people have to deal with noise pollution. When the factory starts to generate, there will be a lot of high tracks, manufacturing machines and robots which can be heard. This causes......

The Sandwich Factory

...sandwich factory In the short-story The Sandwich Factory by Jason Kennedy, we are shown the negative sides of the work in a factory. We get an insight through an unnamed narrator. The narrator works, obviously, at a sandwich factory. The theme of the story is very vague, if existing at all. What might be a clue to the theme is that the work that is being done at the factory is something a machine easily could do, so something with the view of factory workers. It isn’t really the best job he could think of, but after being fired from the last one, he takes the job at the factory even though the pay is bad. The narrator seems like a rather intelligent person in contradiction to the ones you find at factories; he listens to Joy Division and read novels originally written in Japan, which tells me that he is too clever to be fit for the monotonous work the factory provides him with. This certainly isn’t his goal in life. As the story is told from the eyes of the narrator, it is also tainted with his views and thoughts. We know the narrator is a man as he says, “I had zero confidence with women anyway” in line 96, and the elderly lady at the factory, Dot wishes to find a girl for him amongst the female workers. Again we see the narrator differing from the rest of the workers, as he allows himself to be shy towards girls instead of looking down their tops (lines 109-110 ). He is more humane. I think we are given a picture of what happens if you should happen to stay in the factory......

...ground to cocoa mass, pure chocolate in rough form. Because this cocoa mass usually is liquefied then molded. The liquor also may be processed into two components: cocoa solids and cocoa butter. Much of the chocolate consumed today is in the form of sweet chocolate, a combination of cocoa solids, cocoa butter or other fat, and sugar. Milk chocolate is sweet chocolate that additionally contains milk powder or condensed milk. White chocolate contains cocoa butter, sugar, and milk but no cocoa solids. At the end of the 18th century, the first form of solid chocolate was invented in Turin by Doret. This chocolate was sold in large quantities from 1826 by Pierre Paul Caffarel in Italy. In 1819, F. L. Cailler opened the first Swiss chocolate factory. In 1828, Dutchman Coenraad Johannes van Houten patented a method for extracting the fat from cocoa beans and making powdered cocoa and cocoa butter. Van Houten also developed the "so-called" Dutch process of treating chocolate with alkali to remove the bitter taste. This made it possible to form the modern chocolate bar. The German company Jordan & Timaeus sold the first known chocolate bar made from cocoa, sugar and goat's milk in 1839.[36] In England, the company, J. S. Fry & Sons discovered a way to mix some of the cocoa butter back into the Dutched chocolate, and added sugar, creating a paste that could be moulded. This led to the first British chocolate bar in 1847, followed in 1849 by the Cadbury brothers. Briton John Cadbury......

The Sandwich Factory

...The Sandwich Factory The assignment will begin with an analysis and interpretation of the short story "The Sandwich Factory" by Jason Kennedy. In order to put history in perspective to the assignment, there is included a discussion with an excerpt from the novel "Hard Times" - with a description of Coke Town by Charles Dickens. "The Sandwich Factory" by Jason Kennedy, written in 2007. The short story is about a man who in 1994 takes a job at a sandwich factory for a low income bracket. At the factory, he sees his insignificance, indifference and dissatisfaction. This gives us a picture of how his life is and how unhappy he is with his work. The Sandwich factory seems to be a typical food factory where mechanization is exploited to increase efficiency, including the proceeds of sandwiches. Employees at the sandwich factory works monotonously around their belts, and is constantly monitored by their managers who let their employees do all the dirty work that they do not even bother. The managers give awards to employees from bad to excellent. If the factory is behind in today's work schedule, they are not “released” until the job is done! It creates a bad atmosphere among employees. The employees feel trapped, trapped like a prison, it puts people under pressure, stress them and forcing them to work long hours, and faster. As a reader, you get a really bad insight of how things are done at the factory according to the narrator. The narrator is a first-person narrator...
