Fed Reserve

... The Fed Reserve is privately owned. Its staff is from Wall Street, banking, and transnational conglomerates and occasionally from academia. Recently we discovered that $101.4 billion was originally secretly funneled through AIG to AIG counterparties - parties that were owed these sums by AIG, which had not collateralized derivative contracts. That is like writing insurance and having no collateral reserves set aside for losing events. The Federal Reserve in their wisdom paid off AIG’s debt with what eventually will be taxpayer debt. This is wrong and it should not have been done secretly. When demanded by a Federal Judge to reveal to whom these monies were paid and under what circumstances, the Fed said it would harm their reputations and it was a “state secret.” This is part of the program never spoken of that exists to assist the “Working Group on Financial Markets, which manipulates markets 24/7, under an Executive Order signed in August 1988 by then President Ronald Reagan. This was executed to protect against market failures such that had taken place the previous October. The order was for emergencies. The Treasury, the Fed, Wall Street and banking have distorted its original intent. The Fed also sets interest rates and regulates the issuance of money and credit. Thus the Fed holds a pivotal role in our financial well-being. They also are to insure the soundness and stability of the banking system. If our banking system breaks down it is the fault of the Fed.

Corn Fed vs. Grass Fed

...Corn Fed vs. Grass Fed Have you noticed how there’s an increasingly wider selection of types of beef to be purchased? Which option is healthier? Which one is least expensive? There has been an ongoing dispute over which choice of beef we should be consuming. While both may seem to have their own advantage and disadvantage; ranging from being cost-efficient, to more beneficial nutrients. Both contribute to the eco-system, but in completely different ways. While grass-fed beef is the healthier alternative, it can prove to be a bit pricey, nonetheless, grass-fed beef provide us with more nutrients; they’re higher in Omega-3 fatty acid and vitamin E. Corn-fed beef, on the other hand, is relatively more affordable. The million dollar question should be, it’s affordable, but at what cost? What makes corn-fed beef so much cheaper than grass-fed? Corn-fed cattle go through a process, almost like an assembly line. The first step, the cow and calf live in a cow-calf operation. Here, the cow is artificially inseminated for the sole purpose of reproduction. For the first 6 months, the calf stays with their mother, once they’re old enough they’re taken to a pen, where they’re introduced to corn. To make a long story short, the calf is finally moved into a CAFO (confined animal feeding operation). From this point on, they’re all confined to small caged in areas. These facilities house hundreds, even thousands of farm animals. From this point on their diet is strictly corn, protein,......

Breastfeeding vs. Bottle Feeding

...Breastfeeding vs. Bottle Feeding Seanna Cox Rasmussen College Author Note This research is being submitted on March 17, 2013 for Dr. Rose’s English Composition. Breastfeeding vs. Bottle Feeding There are many benefits for breastfeeding and bottle feeding, but each can determine how your infant develops. When becoming a mother, one of the first things you do is decide whether to breastfeed or bottle feed. Unlike bottle feeding, breastfeeding has many more nutrients for the baby and advantages for the mother. Bottle feeding can be very nutritional for the baby but does not benefit the mother in anyway. Some mothers find that breastfeeding is more beneficial for their babies, while other mothers find that bottle feeding is more convenient. Breastfeeding by far has all the nutrients the baby needs for growing and developing properly. In the first two weeks of breastfeeding your baby, he/she will get all of the immunities and antibodies it needs to fight off infection. Breastfed babies are less likely to suffer from indigestion, constipation and ear infections. There are enough fatty acids in breast milk for optimal brain development for your baby. Breastfeeding also lowers the risk of your baby getting SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). “Breast milk is free, and saves money by eliminating the need to buy artificial milk (formula), bottles, and nipples” (Jacobson, 2006, p. 1514). There are also maternal benefits for breastfeeding. Some maternal benefits are......

Bottle Water

...Bottled Water Market Penetration Name Institution Bottled Water Market Penetration Introduction The demand for bottles water has grown tremendously owing to its increased popularity. The industry has been growing at an average rate of 20% per year (Gleick, 2010, p. 15). Demand has grown over 500% in the last decade and a half. In the United States there is a demand of 79 liters of bottles water per person in a year, which has resulted in the sale of up to 30 billion in the sale of the product (Gleick, 2010, p. 17). This has been driven by increased population and the decreased quality of water supplies from the public mains. People have feared for their health and thus have opted for bottles water that is more purified and fresh. The consumption of bottled water in the United States fell in 2008 to 30 billion bottles compared to 2007 (Clarke et al, 2009, p. 28). Bottles water faces stiff competition from other beverages such as sodas. It is thus important that companies to reposition the product in order to get back to the positive growth trend. Repositioned Target Market The market for bottled water is quite large as water is a commodity that is essential to life. Bottled water may face competition from soft drinks and supplies from local authorities. Manufacturers of the product (bottled water) have used various methods in segmenting the market and obtaining potential targets. For instance, coca cola the manufacturer of Dasani, and Nestle have......

Fed Reserve

...may even need to “share” the excess or surplus of funds in their reserves with another bank; this is known as Fed Funds. These funds carry an interest rate as well. The interest rate may be higher or lower depending on the Federal Reserve. The higher the interest rate the more likely a bank is wanting to loan to another bank. If it is lower the desire will be undesirable. The Discount and Fed Funds rate correspond, the Discount rate is normally set slightly below the Fed Funds rate in effort to increase the money in circulation. When the discount rate is above the Fed Fund rates then the money in circulation is decreased. The Federal Reserve Bank is located in each region to allow for an even distribution among the United States. Each of the Reserve Banks are governed by the Federal Reserve System’s Board of Governors who have been nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. AVOIDING INFLATION • Various monetary policies used to Avert inflation • Contractionary Monetary Policy: • The Fed will sells bonds and therefore decrease the money supply. Thereby raising the fed funds rate to decelerate inflation • Higher interest rates during signs of inflation to contain money growth • Monitor unemployment rates: • high unemployment, inflation will be low *(Colander, 2012) MONETARY POLICY TO CONTROL MONEY SUPPLY • By controlling the reserve rate, the Fed can influence the amount of money in an economy • Expansionary policy • Goal is to decease reserve rate so......

Baby in a Bottle

... BABY IN A BOTTLE by Benjamin Bautista The truth was, Mr. Libre felt sorry for his wife. He was very careful to hide it from her, of course, but day by day, through the years, as he saw her watching the shriveled half-black baby in the bottle, he felt more and more sorry for her. She would touch the bottle gently, once in a while, and run her hands fondly over the cold glass; inside, the stiff, skinless body of a four-inch boy now dead for five years, would bob up and down in the green alcohol. And then sometimes, slowly, to herself, she would smile. Mr. Libre‘s wife was a plain woman with high cheekbones and a sad mouth, who was only twenty-nine years old but whose eyes were no longer young. Mr. Libre himself was thirty-three but graying hair and some thick corded veins on his hands made him look older. He was a small man andvthin, and long hours of bending over receipts had given him a stooped posture and made him appear even smaller and thinner. Very often, whenever he could, Mr. Libre would try to walk to his wife to get her to start talking too, but it became harder and harder for them to find things to talk about. The talk always turned to the past and how different it might have been if they‘d had children. Mr. Libre didn‘t want to talk about those things but his wife did, and gradually, the pauses stretched longer and made them both uneasy. But he was always patient with her; even if he was tired or irritable he never showed it in any way. By now he had......

Egg in a Bottle

...Physics Presentation - Egg in a Bottle Title of Experiment: Egg in a Bottle Physics Theory: Air Pressure Materials: Hard-boiled egg without shell Glass bottle with opening slightly smaller than the diameter of the egg Piece of paper Matches for fire Procedure: 1. Put the bottle on the table and light the piece of paper on fire with the match 2. Drop the lit paper in the bottle to fall at the bottom of the glass bottle 3. Set the egg on top of the bottle with small side pointed downward 4. Observe what occurs Results: 1. The egg sat on top of the bottle slightly wiggling while the fire burned. 2. The egg blocked any more air getting into the bottle resulting in the fire going out. 3. When the fire extinguished the egg was rapidly sucked into the bottle and drops to the bottom. Conclusion: 1. The pressure of the air inside and outside of the bottle is the same before the experiment began. Therefore the only force that would cause the egg to enter the bottle is gravity and the diameter is too small for just that force to work. 2. According to Gay-Lussac's law, the pressure of a gas of fixed mass and fixed volume is directly proportional to the gas's temperature. When we changed the temperature of the air inside the bottle, we changed the pressure of the air inside the bottle because the volume of air is constant therefore the pressure increased. 3. Heated air expands and tries to escape so when the fire...

Due to the consumer's needs and wants for a healthier lifestyle, the beverage industry provides a necessary product to the consumers, which is bottled water. Water is essential and with the demand to participate in a healthy lifestyle, the water industry will be successfully profitable. The market size for this industry has been growing and will continue to grow in a rapid pace. Over the past ten years, bottled water has moved from being the preserve of a relatively small market into the U.S. mainstream, with sales of about $7.5 billion, and that's only for water in bottles of 1.5 liters or less (Durr). According to the International Bottle Water Association, Americans spend $5.6 billion in 2000 on bottled water. By 2005, Americans will consume 7.2 billion gallons of bottled water, up from about 5 billion gallons in 2000, the association reported. A factor that will continue to drive the bottled water market is foremost the desire to live a healthy lifestyle. Which leads to the concerns of contaminants found in the tap water. People will pay high prices for water, just to be ensured that it is safe to drink the water that they purchased. Drinking lots of water also prevents dehydration. According to the......

Breast vs. Bottle

...the only option in feeding a baby unless there is a medical reason for why a mother cannot. When deciding on how she will feed her baby, a mother should know why formula is used rather than breast milk. She should know why breast milk is so much healthier, and she should be aware that there are several solutions that can solve any issues that may come up with breastfeeding. Women should know why formula is used rather than Formula Comfort and Lifestyle A woman should know why so many women never even consider breast milk as being an option for feeding their child. Many mothers choose formula over breast milk for reasons that have nothing to do with their baby. According to Kids Health from Nemours (1995-2014), their article Breast or Bottle, states “for many women their decision to breastfeed or formula feed is based on their comfort level, lifestyle and specific medical considerations that they might have. Many women do not breastfeed due to their comfort level and what people may think of them.”(para. Three sentence 2). Most women decide that they do not want to breastfeed because out in public people may find it inappropriate and say rude things to them, or their family and friends may make an enormous ordeal about it. The general says that breastfeeding should be discreet and hidden, but supporters say that it is natural, and it should be allowed anywhere. A mother should not have to cover herself up to please others. People have made such a big deal about this, and......

The Fed

...Samuel Toro POS 1001 Professor Harris The Fed Throughout history, many great nations have risen and fallen. Their policies, laws, and culture dictate whether a nation will fall or flourish. From a consumer culture to a more conservative culture, it plans out the style and ideals of the population as a whole. Mass media also shapes how the population views the world around them; they can make an individual in favor or against a certain issue using techniques to speak to the consumer at a subconscious level. Monetary policy by far is a significant factor in the survival and well being of any nation. It can destroy or exalt any nation through policies that effect how the economy and money interact. Ranging from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the Bank of Japan, and the Swiss National Bank to the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve, these banks were deployed to attend the dire need of keeping monetary value stable; at what ever cost. Though for the best interest, centralized banks have helped and hurt their respective economies in many different ways. “During the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, financial panics plagued the nation, leading to bank failures and business bankruptcies that severely disrupted the economy. The failure of the nation's banking system to effectively provide funding to troubled depository institutions contributed significantly to the economy's vulnerability to financial panics” (Fox 1).

Water Bottle Deposits a Plus

...Water Bottle Deposits a Plus Danielle L. Tippett Baker College of Owosso Water Bottle Deposits a Plus To walk down the streets today, nearly everyone passing by is carrying a water bottle in which they purchased at the store. It seems that the amount of water being sold by stores is increasing. Where are these water bottles being disposed of is the question. Too many of these water bottles are not being disposed of properly since the majority of these are consumed by people away from home (Lockhart,para.3). They are put into trash cans or thrown on the ground as litter. If there was a bottle deposit required on all water bottles purchased then people would be more conscious of their disposal techniques putting a stop to waste created by consuming water. All water bottles need to have a deposit which can be set by each state’s legislature to help reduce landfill waste and littering. One of the many great benefits of having a water bottle deposit is that it will help to control littering on the streets and beaches which in turn is affecting the environment. When there is litter floating along the beach shores a person might not feel so apt to swimming while on their vacation. The empty water bottles that line the streets will make certain neighborhoods less desirable thus bringing down homeowners property values. The local landfills are increasing in size with all the extra water bottles being carelessly thrown into trash cans. It is estimated that about 500,000 water......

Grass Fed

...Grass Fed vs. Corn Fed Michael Green DeVry University Grass Fed vs. Corn Fed The health of America is steadily declining and poor diet is a contributing factor (Pollan, 2006). Meat has become a main staple in the American diet in the last century. In fact, the average American consumes about 180 pounds of meat consisting of beef, pork, chicken, and turkey each year (Pollan, 2006). What the average American may not know is that most of these meats were grain fed during production, which is detrimental to the diets of both the livestock and its consumers. Grain feeding of livestock on American farms should be eliminated because human consumption of these meat products contributes to the decline in the health of America; instead, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) should require farmers and producers to provide the healthiest diet for animals to eliminate the health risks of the consumers. Problems Studies indicate that grain fed meats lack key nutrients optimal to the health of America. For almost 50 years most American farmers have been using grain to feed his or her livestock (Pollan, 2006). Grain feeding became prevalent not long after World War II when there was an over-abundant supply of grain (McCluskey, Wahl, Li, & Wandschneider, 2005). Farmers rely heavily on grain feeding because it is a cheaper product, it shortens the growth process,...
