In the very beginning of this nation's history, Americans were under the power of England's monarchy. The Americans were able to overthrow the shackles of bondage and created a Constitution that declares its steadfast belief in the ideals of freedom, equality and the pursuit of happiness. But immediately after the Declaration of Independence and even after the Constitution was signed and accepted by leaders of the new government, not every American citizen is treated fairly. And a good example would be the Negroes and other minorities such as Asians and more so their women.read more

According to Bone (2006) the organic food market in the United Kingdom was valued at 1.6 billion pounds sterling in 2005. This figure was up from 0.8 billion pounds sterling in 2000. Several factors have been attributed to this impressive market growth. Notable among them include trends towards healthy eating and living and concerns for food safety and the environment. The latter reason is spawning what has been described as green consumerism. Quite apart from discernible tags such as labels, organic foods are distinguishable from non-organic foods by the methods used in production and processing (Lohr, 2007). Furthermore, it is generally accepted that the production of organic food prohibits the use of pesticides, inorganic fertilizers, growth promoters and livestock feed additives.read more
The economy of Russia and of other countries of the former Soviet Union used the economic model of central planning for almost sixty years.

Russia and Central Eastern Europe is certainly one of the most promising market areas of the world. With an impressive legacy from the Soviet era, an educated population and vast natural resources, Russia has a great potential for development. Although beset by severe economic problems and political and governance inefficiencies at the time, the nation has the potential for a spectacular comeback this may happen as soon as 2010.

Because of the dramatic increase in air traffic over the past decade, aviation organizations in the United States and other internationally based counterparts find ways to prevent congestion on routes with high traffic incidents. In order to do this, RVSM is proposed. RVSM or Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum is the reduction of the vertical separation from current 2,000-ft. minimum to 1,000-ft. minimum of the FL 290. After a thorough study, the ICAO Review of General Concept of Separation Panel (RGCSP) concluded that it is technically feasible to implement the 1,000-ft. separation standard safely (Federal Aviation Administration [FAA], 2005).
Since its implementation, there is a remarkable 28% decline on operational errors in the airspace in which RVSM is applied. Also, fuel costs are decreasing significantly due to more efficient altitudes at which the planes are flying. Not only that, there is a reduction in the number of conflicts; situations wherein a plane has to move laterally or vertically as ordered by the controller (Federal Aviation Administration [FAA], 2008).
These results suggest that the new separation standard of 1,000-ft. minimum besides being as safe is more effective than that of the previous vertical separation of 2,000-ft. minimum.

It is a well known proverb that change is the only constant in this world. One of the most important catalysts of change in the history of mankind is technology. Rapid progress in technology has been at the forefront of driving sociological change. In the middle ages in Europe, technological progress came to a grinding halt and social change with it.
