Currently, Asia is in a large, rising water crisis that is leaving many populations with difficulty in finding clean water. Urbanization, agriculture, rising population, and overuse of water has led to the rising crisis. Throughout many of the countries in Asia, the rising water crisis is dominating government decisions, lifestyles, and the economy. Many may think that water is an unlimited source that is always replenish able, and overuse it and waste it in vast amounts. Sadly, this is catching up to us all, as a sky-rocketing population along with a diminishing water supply will cause problems globally. Many non-governmental organizations such as the Red Cross are making efforts to supply water and other amenities to countries in need. In order for this problem to be fixed internally for these countries, more large-scale movements need to take place. Every country should be able to provide everyone with an adequate amount of water, and if they don’t their populations will simply perish. Although these organizations are successfully assisting, a more permanent solution needs to be proposed. In order for this to be accomplished, the government needs to forcefully take control, provide, and enforce laws and regulations to effectively fight against this. India, which contains a large piece of the world’s population needs its government to join together with others, even in times of tension because if water dies in India, the people of India die. If this doesn’t occur, all of…

The key problem that Gupta should focus on the short term is the ability to maintain the company reputation when facing the contamination crisis (Crandall, Parnell & Spillan, 2010).

way to fixing this crisis is likely to be solved by having the people want a change themselves. This will only happen if the insight is put into them making them wish for a better future for themselves. If we can make them think of their future for themselves then they may actually have a brighter future than we have seen before. Giving the mindset of having self-help will not always be what comes from people who try to help, it needs to be born in the minds of the people.
The fact that not…
Small Perils Lead to Great Losses
People sometimes ignore things, which they regarded as unimportant. However, these trifles may cause people great losses before they realize it. In this paper, we will mainly talk about three cases, one is Bhopal India Gas Tragedy, one is Asian financial Crisis, and the other is Fed’s stock crash in 1987.
