Discuss both sides of Space travel vs. current crucial problems faced by humans?

Every year, many countries spend billions of dollars for space research. While this research has some hope for the involved scientists, the huge investment in such research is highly questionable, especially in developing and underdeveloped countries. Some people think that it is unnecessary to spend money for space research than dealing with crucial problems such as overpopulation, while others argue that the space research has benefited the society lot. This essay will elaborate on both ideas and come to a logical conclusion.

On one hand, space research brings knowledge, discoveries and improvements in our daily life.It helped tremendously in weather forecasting, education and security of the country. Further, the space explorations are being conducted by many countries to research and find the possibility of extra-terrestrial species and natural resources in other planets. For instance, NASA has found the evidence of water in Mars and it is conducting further research on it.

On the other hand, people in some countries are still facing crucial problems like overpopulation, lack of food, clean water and electricity. Instead of spending more money in space travel, the developed countries should think morally and ethically to help under developed countries. For example, many people in African countries are suffering from Ebola virus infection, drought and terrorism and lot of innocent people are dying every year. If US government decides to spend money to help, these devastating problems can be eradicated soon.

In conclusion, the foregoing discussion propounds the view that the over spending of tax payers’ money to space travel will not improve the quality of human life. Further, it is expected that the people make cognizance of the fact and urge their government to focus several more urgent issues that need to be funded.

In underdeveloped countries, tourism has disadvantages and can be said the opposite as well. Discuss

In underdeveloped countries, tourism has disadvantages and can be said the opposite as well. Discuss

In some nations, which are not developed, have multiple drawbacks in regards to the tourism but on the other hand, there are few countries which have taken the advantage of tourism and are prospering. In, my opinion the advantage of tourism in underdeveloped countries outweighs the disadvantages because tourism generates income and creates jobs which are essential for the sustainability of the nation. On the contrary, certain countries should focus on stabilising the current burning issues of the country, before venturing in tourism.

Tourism is a growing industry worldwide. With tourism, lots of people get employment and the local business flourishes. Tourism brings with itself a huge inflow of foreign currency, which strengthens the economy of the country. Many people in the service industry like hotels, transportation, restaurants gets employment and are engaged. For instance, Nepal is well known for the world’s highest mountain peak “Mount Everest”. Multiple tourists flock Nepal every year for mountaineering and sports. In the due course, the Nepali locals are involved in providing the best service to the foreigners and thus earn their living. In addition to it, a good economy would also ensure best facilities for tourists, who give a positive feedback and in return brings in more tourists. Subsequently, it is up to the government of the country to highlight its uniqueness and portray to the world and build its brand value. To illustrate this, In India foreigners visit the country to learn Yoga, enjoy nat urotherapy and study the historical monuments like Taj Mahal.

On the other hand, certain underdeveloped countries like Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria are always engaged in local war, which prevents the tourists from visiting them. Furthermore, other issues like political instability, internal conflicts, terrorism, racism, epidemics and illegal drug activities further deteriorate the chances of tourism development. The first priority of the country is to neutralise these issues and then focus on the tourism. Many underdeveloped countries like Ethiopia, Congo are still struggling to arrange food, medicine and basic facilities for their citizens, So, it would be in best interest for these countries to focus on their development rather than tourism.

Finally, promoting tourism in underdevelopment will always be a challenge, but with a political will, it can lead the country to prosperity.

Many people think regions affect successful persons. What is your opinion about native regions and accomplished person influence on the regions they belong to?

Many people think regions affect successful persons. What is your opinion about native regions and accomplished person influence on the regions they belong to?

Majority of people believe that the place in which they are brought up, influence the success of the person. I my viewpoint there is a deep impact of the native region on the person’s success. The region, in which a person grows, provides a conducive environment, ample amount of opportunities to learn and perform and provides access to multiple resources and facilities easily.

It has been seen that every person has strong memories of his childhood. A favourable environment in childhood helps the child to explore his passion and the area of interest. If this eagerness is nurtured properly, through a good environment, the child develops confidence to show up his talent when he grows up to an adult. To illustrate, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Dhirubhai Ambani are the perfect example who were nurtured with a helpful environment.

Secondly, it is noticed that a particular type of talent, hails from a specific area. For Instance, Brazil and Argentina has produced many legendary footballers. Similarly, in the field of academics, many Indians have brought laurels to the country. When a person is successful in a distinctive domain, he becomes a source of inspiration for many people and gradually the development of skills, resources and facilities starts picking up and opens the gates for many aspirants.

Finally, one can say that, when talent gets right amount of encouragement and environment to breed, it takes the shape of success and often achieves the impossible feat.

In under developed countries, tourism has disadvantages and can be said the opposite as well. Discuss.

Globetrotting is quite common nowadays, and plays an important role in the growth of developing nations. In my opinion, the underdeveloped countries needs to promote tourism because, it boosts up the economy, generates employment and provides a great opportunity to promote art and culture.

Tourism is one of the strongest drivers of world trade and prosperity. In many countries, tourism acts as an engine for development through foreign exchange earnings and the creation of direct and indirect employment. Tourism contributes 5% of the world’s GDP. Tourism is the first or second source of export earnings in 20 of the world’s 48 least developed countries. In some developing countries, notably small island states, tourism can account for over 25% of GDP.

Tourism is a relatively labor intensive sector and is traditionally made up of small and micro enterprises. Many tourism jobs are potentially quite accessible to the poor as they require relatively few skills and little investment. People can get engaged in jobs like transportation, lodging, tour guides, entertainment, agents, planner, cruise line staff, curators, life guards and recreation workers to name a few. In addition to it tourists can get benefits from a wide range of sectors such as agriculture, handicrafts and language translators.

Finally, with tourism, exchange of culture, knowledge, art, and skills take place. Country like India attract many international tourists for its rich and diverse culture, spirituality, yoga, meditation techniques, naturopathy, fairs, festivals, cinema, dance and other art forms. Every nation has its uniqueness. It is up to the country to realize its strengths, which can be exploited for encouraging tourism and building relations.

Xenophobia has accelerated rapidly in the western countries. According to you what solutions can be proposed by government and individuals.

Xenophobia has accelerated rapidly in the western countries. According to you what solutions can be proposed by government and individuals.

Xenophobia is the fear and stigmatization of foreigners. People who look different, speak a different language, or have different customs can appear threatening to those who are used to only one particular ethnic group, lifestyle or set of behaviors. In the western countries xenophobic incidents has gained momentum. The main reason for this is the large scale immigration of the people across the globe to western countries for a better life. In my opinion, both government and individuals should take the responsibility to curb this menace. Government should show their political will, understand the sentiments of the people and educate the people. On the other hand individuals should elect a progressive leader, embrace diversity and organize against xenophobia

 Xenophobia results in discrimination, racism, and nationalism, which in turn inspire violence, hostility, and exploitation. It is the sheer will power of the government, how strictly it deals with it. It should prosecute hate crimes and hate speech. Furthermore, punishing the perpetrators sends a clear message that xenophobia is unacceptable. Getting assistance and support of law enforcement is crucial. Police are often untrained in how to address hate crimes or, worse, among the chief exploiters of refugees, migrants, and foreigners.  Many of the world’s worst atrocities – from the Holocaust to the Rwandan Genocide – have been inspired by xenophobic sentiments. Government should talk with its citizens and educate them about these historical facts will help prevent future outbursts of xenophobia.

On the other hand, individuals can also handle xenophobia at their level. They should get organized and united and put up their issues with the concerned authorities. Secondly, in this era of globalization, one should be ready to embrace diversity. Many people even go for intercultural marriages. Furthermore, if the individuals are not satisfied with the government, they can vote and elect a progressive leader. Lastly, people can take the help of media and social networking sites to spread awareness about the harmful effects of xenophobia.

In a nutshell, the complications that arises because of xenophobia can be dealt, when both government and individuals works jointly to eradicate it.

Essay 2

Adventure or dangerous sports are now becoming a new trend in today’s generation. However, some still think these sports has a risk of life and should be excluded. These sports have both advantages and disadvantages. According to me, the advantages of these sports are considerable like it is more thrilling and adventurous, acts as a stress busters and keeps us fit and energetic. However, it also has some disadvantages like it involves risk of life and property and have a negative effect on teenagers.

To begin with, adventurous sports usually have many benefits and are more popular among youngsters. These sports are done with a voluntary consent and helps an individual in many ways like it acts as a stress busters and also helps in increasing adrenal rush in body.Sports activities like White water rafting and Base Jumping, which are quite popular among the youngsters gives them a lot of thrill and excitement. It also instills a sense of achievement and set goals for others. Sports like para gliding and sky diving also help us in overcoming the phobias. Alexander Polli who got his fame in sky diving has set a new example for other people.

Secondly, dangerous sports have some disadvantages which outnumbers the advantages. It mainly includes the risk of life and permanent disabilities. Whereas it may act as a stress buster for athletes but it keeps the family members and near ones in stress every time as a result of these sports. Some athletes have also died because of their adventurous nature like Paul Walker- a famous actor and a car racer, who died in a car accident.

Like two sides of a coin, extreme sports come with their own set of merits and demerits. But one should always consider the positive sides and ignore its negative aspects also.

The 21st Century has begun. What changes do you think this new century will bring ? Use examples and details to explain your answer.

Historically, evolution has been in nature’s hands. Now, suddenly, it is largely in human hands, but we need to be cautious, using our scientific know-how as responsibly as possible. The job of today’s young people, or the “Transition Generation” will be to get humanity through the coming period of chaos, peril, and opportunity. Cognitive abilities of humans has helped him to transform Stone Age into age of technology in a phased manner.21st century heralded the era of transformation in every sphere of life to make the quality of life better . Be it education, infrastructure, medicines, weapons, food and the like.

 With the development of infrastructure and means of communication like railways, airways, shipways, cars , world has transformed into global village . It is not just their development but also its frequency and speed which is constantly being improved and this century will witness self driven vehicles, flying cars, mono rails, space tourism and many more inventions which are beyond our imagination.

Life on extra terrestrial planets would become a reality. Astronomical innovations have provided us new insights into life which was earlier restricted to earth. It will help us to discover medicines of incurable or life threatening diseases as our space is treasure of rare earth materials and energy. It is already a proven fact that surgeries done in space have better result.

The basic problems of hunger, malnutrition, drinking water, with which our world is still afflicted would be lost into oblivion. With cutting edge technologies in food production like gene sequencing , Genome project, Bio-technology food, cross pollination , we will be able to grow foods with desired nutrients and too less land will be required to grow too much food.

However on the flip side, this century will also pose us with various threats in the form of global warming and subsequent thinning of ozone layer which may have catastrophic effects on all life forms on earth and might usher what is called as “Fifth Mass Destruction”. Also new diseases are emerging like Zika Virus, SARS, H1N1 flu, and new types of cancers. Furthermore due to changes in food chain there has been invasion of alien species which are intensifying the damage. Development of weapons of mass destruction like hydrogen bomb, chemical bombs would further pose new threats. Human cloning, Stem cells preservation may also bring unthinkable dangers.

All such fears have to be tackled and managed with utmost level of care and sophistication. Only then we can enjoy the real fruits of time. And we should be ready for all the threats by catapulting our strengths .
