Nike - 1,663 words
Nike, Inc. (503-671-6453, www.nike.com) is the worlds #1 athletic shoe and apparel seller. Nike currently employs 20,700 employees, with total sales of $8.78 billion. Nike and the athletic shoe industry have evolved into one of the most competitive market in recent years. But, analysts believe that athletic shoe sales will slow down over the next few years.

Ending Starvation - 1,588 words
Across the globe in impoverished third world countries an estimated 50,000 children die of starvation every day (Quine 36). We have all seen the images of these children--bloated bellies, fly covered, bulging eyes--in television pleas by various charitable organizations. While these images sicken us, we idly sit by (often flipping the channel to avoid them), refusing to help these less fortunate kids. The problem is made worse by the ever-increasing population. Even the wealthy countries like our own now have a starvation problem (Quine 29). Admittedly, the problem here is less severe, but it still exists. With our current level of technology, the resources at our disposal, and a commitment ...

Population - 1,150 words

Peter, is the founder and president of Global Business Network, an organization which studies business and demographic trends. He presents an argument stating that a majority of the population will be teenagers in the 21st century (49).

The Dead - 490 words
Some say that people never change. They may be right, but no one really knows. What people do know is that every living person has one thing in common, something that will never change. Everyone will die, there's no way around it. Every "new" and "old" generation will succumb to the same ghastly fate. The differences in the "old" generation and "new" generation sometimes collide in life. The contrast between generations in James Joyce's "The Dead" is similar to the contrast in the generations today. The "baby boomer" generation is the old fashioned generation preoccupied with hospitality and tradition, where as, "generation x" is the new generation, preoccupied with knowledge and intellect. ...

Stem Cells: The Miracle Cure - 1,088 words
In order to develop an opinion on whether or not stem cells should be used, one first must understand what they are and how they are used. Simply stated, the definition of a stem cell is an undifferentiated cell, meaning that it has no true function yet. However, all of the genes within a human stem cell have the potential to become other types of cells. The triggering mechanism for this is for the stem cells to be placed among specialized cells. Specialized cells include skin cells, muscle cells, or any other type of cell that has a specific function in the body. One of the most popular examples-and one of the most effective-is the neuron example. This was originally discovered at the Unive ...

The Future Of Capitalism - 1,147 words
... With respect to ageing demographics, Thurow focuses in on America where this phenomenon is most prevalent. He states that the ageing population and its dependence on the welfare state is draining America's potential for future economic development. One can be sure that Thurow is not an advocate of the American welfare system. The aged extract six times more funds from social security during their retirement than they contributed during their working lives.
