made in China (bonus)

Everything from shirts and soap to tables and tape are made in China. Almost everything we touch seems be stamped in tiny letters with “made in China.” With most products being made overseas the price of these goods are condensable lower then if they were made elsewhere but Americans are losing out on jobs. According to the U.S. Department of Labor unemployment rate has gone up to 6.5% this means that 10.1 million Americans don’t have a job. We are now left with the question of low product prices or more American jobs.


don’t forget the salt

I love Michael Moore’s movies and the sort of dark ironic humor in it. Bowling for Columbine is a great example of this. I like how he mixes the serious with the ironic such was when a man from the NRA is saying how safe it is to have a guy but he can’t even buckle his belt. When people said the shootings at Columbine were due to rock music seemed outrages to me. I like how the point that the thing the two boys were doing before the attacks was bowling and that was the real cause. Both of these reasons must be taken with a grain of salt.

A report by the United Nations is calling for China to clean up their act. The study showed that Atmospheric Brown Clouds, a mix of “soot, smog and toxic chemicals”, are covering most of China. The Clouds are having damaging effects not only on the people but also the land and global weather. The Atmospheric Brown Clouds are causing the death of many people and plants. The Clouds since the 1970s sunlight has dropped as much as 20 percent in China and this has caused crop production to drop. The Clouds that can be seen from airplanes and can be as thick as a mile is said to be reducing the rain in India and Southeast Asia while increasing it in central China. For me this is all just one more reason why China and the rest of the world need to look for cleaner fuels and ways of reducing pollution. To read more go here.
