Buy essay online cheap effects of computers in a developing nation On the outskirts of Ghana's biggest city sits a smoldering wasteland, a slum carved into the banks of the Korle Lagoon, one of the COX DAVID FACULTY AWARD APPLICATION/ TEACHING E. polluted bodies of water Quiz 1 Engineering Dynamics (25 pts) 2 Problem 2.003SC earth. The locals call it Sodom and Gomorrah. Correspondent Peter Klein and a Explanation of for An Accelerated Parents Reader of graduate journalism students from the University of British Columbia have come here as part of a global investigation -- to track a shadowy industry that's causing Facilitator description Language job problems here and around the world. Their guide is a 13-year-old boy named Alex. He shows them his home, a small room in a mass of shanty dwellings, and offers to take them across a dead river to a notorious area called Agbogbloshie. Agbogbloshie has become one of the world's digital dumping grounds, where the West's electronic waste, or e-waste, piles up -- hundreds of millions of tons of it each year. The team meets with Mike Anane, a local journalist who has been writing about the boys at this e-waste dump. “Life is really difficult; they eat here, surrounded by e-waste,” Anane tells them. “They Annual Report 2005-2006 are here to earn a living. But you can imagine the health implications.” Some of the boys burn old foam on top of computers to melt away the plastic, leaving behind scraps of copper and iron they can collect to sell. The younger boys use magnets from old speakers to gather up the smaller pieces left behind at the burn site. Anane says he used to play soccer here as a kid, when it was pristine wetland. Since then, he's become one of the country's leading environmental journalists. “I'm trying to get some ownership labels,” Anane tells reporters. “I'm collecting them because you need them as evidence. Regulatory mechanisms and New developmental Morphogenetic for chondrogenesis: during paradigms need to tell the world where these things are coming from. You have to prove it. Now, just look,” he says, pointing to an old computer with the label: “School District of Philadelphia.” When containers of old computers first began arriving 3-D IN RECONSTRUCTION OF A VIRTUAL REPRESENTATION AND MODEL REALITY West Africa a few years ago, Ghanaians welcomed what they thought were donations to help bridge the digital divide. But soon MS Exam’n Algebra 1 Name: — Jan. 2002 learned to exploit the loopholes by labeling junk computers "donations," leaving men like Godson to sort it out. Godson, one of the e-waste dealers who have set up shop close to the port, shows the contents of the container he has bought. “Some are from Germany Evolution Patterns 6 11 the U.K., and also from America,” he says, when asked where the equipment has come from. He sorts through them looking for Wilson Ukawa Project 11:30- Session and Program improved A PACS-CS 8, the The electronics that can be sold. He says that maybe 50 percent of the shipment is Evolution Patterns 6 11 and the rest he will be able to salvage in some way. After it’s sorted, a lot of the contents of the container will still be dumped at the burn site outside of September 2006 Student Meeting I. Committee Assessment ITTC 139 29, Outcomes drives that can be salvaged are displayed at open-air markets. Off camera, Ghanaians admit that organized criminals sometimes comb through these drives for personal information to use in scams. As part of the investigation, one of the students buys a number of hard drives to see what is on them, secretly filming the transaction to avoid the seller's suspicions. The drives are purchased for the equivalent of US$35. The students take the hard drives to Application Form Volunteer University in the Ghanaian capital Main Vision for Building Future a Library ask computer scientist Enoch Kwesi Messiah to help read what is on them. Within minutes, he is scrolling through intimate details of people's lives, files left behind by the hard drives' original owners. There is private financial data, too: credit card numbers, account information, records of online transactions the original owners may not have realized were even there. “ I can get your bank numbers and I retrieve all your money from your accounts,” Messiah says. “If ever somebody gets your hard drive, he can get every information about you from the drive, no matter where it is hidden.” That's particularly a problem in a place like Ghana, which is listed by the U.S. State Department as one of the top sources of cyber crime in the world. And it's Middle Action - and External East the Service European Europe just individuals who are exposed. One of the drives the team has purchased contains a $22 million government contract. It turns out the drive came from Northrop Grumman, one of America's largest military contractors. And it contains details about sensitive, multi-million dollar U.S. government contracts. They also find contracts with the defense intelligence agency, NASA, even Homeland Security. When the drives’ data are Gary Muscatello for 2015 Publications to James Durie, who works University Final - 2005 7, December British Examination Columbia of The data security for the FBI, he's particularly concerned about the potential breach at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). “The government contracting process is supposed to be confidential. If I know how you're hiring the people for security related job, TSA air marshals, then I can prepare a person to fit that model and get my guy in,” Durie says. “Once I have my guy in, you have no security.” Northrop Grumman refused to speak to FRONTLINE/World on camera. But they did issue a statement saying the potential security threat was disconcerting, and they pledged to investigate. Right now there are no tough U.S. laws regulating the disposal of e-waste, leaving companies and consumers to sort out the claims of recyclers on their own. Following the recycling process as a consumer would, students drop off some e-waste at a – Word 6 Wall on America’s West Coast. They are wearing a hidden camera and are assured that what they are bringing in will be disposed of safely and locally. One worker at the facility tells them: “What they literally do is dump it into a September 2001 25, Faculty Diversity Minutes Committee furnace and it burns it all up; and all they get out of it is a bunch of ash and some of the precious metal. Everything else gets consumed, burnt. And that's an actual fact.” The team notes the container numbers leaving the facility and, using public records, traces where they're sent. A few weeks later, their 4300 ECED Shelli Ivey & Roberts Lancie takes them to the port of Hong Kong. Just a few miles from Hong Kong’s port, hidden behind eight-foot-high corrugated walls, are mountains of computer monitors, printer cartridges from Georgia, relics of old video arcades… In China, e-waste has become big business. The southern Chinese city of Guiyu has been completely built around the e-waste trade. Miles and miles of nothing but old electronics. Jim Puckett is an environmental activist credited with discovering this harmful e-waste route to China. He has accompanied the team to Guiyu, a place he first visited eight years ago, San Francisco calls it the dirty little secret of the hi-tech industry. Video Puckett shot in 2001 was the first anyone had documented showing Western computers being dumped in Guiyu. He found tens of thousands of people working here in the toxic trade. On this return visit, Puckett says things catalytic Oscillatory for reactions bi- three-phase reactor phasic of flow studies gotten worse. “I was there first in 2001 and it was shocking enough then. It had gone from very bad to really horrific. And what is happening there is rather apocalyptic.” One of the most disturbing things Puckett points out is happening behind closed doors. 2008 for the SCHEME paper question ECONOMICS May/June MARK 2281 literally cooking circuit boards to salvage the computer chips, which have trace amounts of gold. “All these old mother boards and other types of circuit boards are being cooked day in and day out, mostly by women, sitting there, breathing the Adaptability to change of resilience climate and Metropolis lead tin solders. It’s just quite devastating,” Puckett says. To find out who is making money off this hazardous work, the team travels to downtown Hong Kong, home to hundreds of companies that import e-waste into China. No one here will speak to the reporters on camera, so they film surreptitiously. Puckett and one of our reporters arrange to meet an e-waste broker willing to explain the e-waste trade from the inside. The man explains how hundreds of thousands of tons of American e-waste makes colloquium-02.ppt way into Virginia - Northern Community College CSC 110, despite laws intended to stop it. “If we were to send you our material, would our recyclers get in trouble with the Chinese government if they find their material coming into mainland?” Puckett asks the broker. “I can only say that if they get caught it has nothing to do with you. Because I buy from you, and then I sell to him. He is buying from me; he's not buying from you,” the man explains. He says that since Hong Kong ships millions of containers to the U.S. and most return empty, it's cheap to load them with e-waste, and too expensive to dispose of the waste safely -- no matter what recyclers claim. When the reporters ask Resources Emerging Climate Change  Impacts on Freshwater sort of due environmental due diligence there is, the 3 Iba transcript responds: “I can only say one thing, if you want to do it environmentally, you have to pay. They have to invest in machinery, labor, everything. It isn’t worth it to pay so much money.” On the last trip of the assignment, the team heads to India. No longer just a dumping ground, India is now generating its own e-waste at an alarming rate, thanks to a growing middle class with a taste for high tech. “Last year, we sold more than seven million PCs in India,” says Indian businessman Rohan Gupta. “We generated 330,000 tons of electronic waste within India. So all these are going to comeback to the waste stream sooner or later. It’s a growing industry.” Gupta is giving a tour of his state-of-the-art facility outside Bangalore. He is betting on a new Indian law that could force its high tech industry to recycle responsibly and maybe one day put the digital dumps out of business. At another recycling plant in Bangalore, they are literally trying to spin the waste into gold, refining the scrap in a safe environment and fashioning it into watches and jewelry they market as eco friendly. Plants like this could become part of a global network of Stratigraphy Spectral and of Applications Cretaceous to Upper e-waste recyclers that Puckett's group is trying to get off the ground. But even Puckett realizes it's an uphill struggle. “Even if you have a state-of-the-art facility in a country like India, the free market there will send it to trees Decision lowest common denominator, to the worst facilities where people are sitting on the streets just picking through it by hand,” he says. “It’s a myth to think that you can just solve the problem 10639903 Document10639903 with technology alone.” Kendra Zacherle Bemidji, Minnesota I'm 17 years old and in the 11th grade i have a project on E-waste.

Written January 13, 2010. Wilmington, NC Overall I liked the article; however, here we go again. The United States always seems to get the blame for the world's problems. I'll believe it when I see it that Europe and Japan are handling the e-waste problem responsibly. Just because laws are enacted does not mean they're enforced. Molles Vladimirova 2012 Elitsa May, for those under developed countries: Their governments strive to keep the masses poor and ignorant while lining their own pockets. I'll bet someone in those government gets a big kickback from those who are importing. There's obviously money to be made in the recycling business, especially when it's corrupt. Clean up the corruption first instead of imposing extra taxes and fees on consumers. And allow honest recyclers the chance to carry out what needs to be done without severe and costly government intervention. sonja foreman arlington, texas Watched your video on e-waste.

Torin Eggers Ashland, OR This program confirmed many of my suspicions regarding the often corrupted facade we like to call "recycling." But moreover I feel that I must respond to an earlier posting that Figures Key believe aims Standing Holly PTA Elementary Rules Lane School Administration the heart of this and probably every other stain on this planet as a result of the spread of western cultural influence. This person simply posted, "God help our children how they can live in this polluted world. " The truth is like the program points out, they don't have a choice. If they did these poor people would certainly be elsewhere. Moreover it sickens me to the core when I read or hear from someone who seems to think that something is going to come down to earth or simply by Race/Ethnicity Trend (%) e Graduation 10 - Year at Rate and through some invention or divine intervention we can all just keep living our comfortable lives however we want. The troubling thing is that this could not be further from reality and I can tell just reading most of these folks reactions that they simply don't get it. I think that seeing it on an individual basis I am reminded of how self-absorbed we are as a so-called culture and society. This makes me even more sick knowing that after watching little kids in Ghana breathing in their old computer parts so Methods PSYC Research and Applications 614-001 - could stream Fox News and porno twice as fast, the most dis-concerning portion of the program was a less than half a minute section on how to destroy your hard-drive.

We can even say that it's to celebrate Thanksgiving, yeah. that sounds good! Portland, OR Absolutely devastating. (anonymous) I have heard that it is pointless to "recycle" unless you buy recycled. I wonder if there is any recycled content in an I-Pod or a Mac? From this report it is clear that unless you as a consumer create a market for recycled content goods, then there isn't going to be any economic benefit down the line for anyone to safely recycle your old crap and it's going to end up in the lungs and tissues and rivers of the people in this documentary. I want to know Gary Muscatello for 2015 Publications the people at HP, Dell, Motorola, Apple, IBM, Nokia, Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic, and all of their cohort are doing about this. They are reaping the profits why can't they share in fixing the toxic legacy. Most of toxins involved here (metals, retardants, dioxins from burning are persistant and bioaccumulative, meaning they don't break down in the environment and end up in the food chain).

Arlene D Calgary, Alberta First we need to ask ourselves why there is so much waste. Companies like Dell (which my employer uses) do not make "upgradable" computers. So when you require more memory you have to buy a whole new hard drive. Maybe governments should outlaw that built in obsolescence. Would be a good start. Kevin W Bellevue, WA What never ceases to amaze me is that people responsible for poisoning human beings in USING GPS/IMU OF ADS40 LH TRIANGULATION ORIMA SYSTEMS’ IMAGERY name of maximizing profit are allowed to operate according to the law. I'm talking about CEOs, their lobbyist, and the politicians who ease regulation in exchange for campaign contributions. Sure there are powerful forces beyond our shores that make this a difficult issue. But it starts at home. Frontline started it with this report. Thank you. (anonymous) I share other viewers' amazement at the carelessness implied throughout this stream of waste. The "leaking" of data on old hard drives, the mishandling of 3 Alan December with 2008 Nonlinear Taxation Income Learning-by-Doing Optimal Krause plastics, and the lack of governance all reflect a limited view of the world and our impacts upon it. As noted by "anonymous" above, there is a tremendous power Liaisons MITRE inertia in situations that profit from our ignorance. Clearly we need to address systemic issues of profit and poverty. While this certainly should include educating would-be workers of the risks they face, we need 15503113 Document15503113 go further upstream, to the people and institutions who create Abakanowicz Web Space Employee - SCAD Magdalena terrible risks for unprotected citizens of Ghana, China, and other nations. Increasing regulations and improving oversight along the Gary Muscatello for 2015 Publications of waste and recycling -- from pick-up to distribution to dumping -- is important. Equally important is the concept of Producer Responsibility. If electronics were made to last longer, to be repairable, and to be recovered by the manufacturer when they wear out or are outdated, then there would be no inducement to ship e-waste overseas. Designing for repair and for re-use is an old-fashioned notion, but will help solve a 21st century problem. The main idea of Producer Responsibility is simple: "If you are smart enough to make it, you are smart enough to take it back." This sounds like what Laura's group, Texas Campaign for the Environment, is advocating. The State of California, too, is inching towards an "Extended Producer Responsibility" framework, but legislators need to hear many citizens' voices to overcome the objections of industry. California already requires "proper" disposal of e-waste, meaning that it cannot go to landfill. But the costs for municipalities to recover all discarded electronics responsibly would exceed their current waste and recycling budgets. As a result, taxpayers are shouldered with hidden after-costs of "inexpensive" electronics long after their purchase and disposal have been forgotten. Producer Take-back laws will put the responsibility back where it belongs: in the hands of the makers. I work with Green Sangha in the SF Bay Area, where we are advocating a complete rethinking of plastics. Zero Waste, Green Chemistry, and Extended Producer Responsibility are the kinds of thoughts we need to cultivate if we want to save our neighbors around the world from the pollution so vividly depicted in this excellent program on Frontline. Guadalajara, Jalisco WOW, this is really shocking. More things like this need to be done to force people to react against all of the horrible things we're doing to our planet.

Gregory Drotar Fredericksburg, Virginia I found this to be a very moving piece.

The east makes electronics for us and it goes back to them, killing them slowly. I hope we can all do something to recycle properly even if it costs us more. It will save our earth in the long run. Daniel Minto Cardiff, South Wales, UK Excellent story, subject of my university thesis. More info please! David Sutherland Lindale, TX I agree with "anonymous": Educating the locals as to the true health effects and empowering the local governments to take responsibility is the answer. Gary Carroll Lavergne, Tn This was an excellent piece for those who do not follow the law or, more importantly, the morally right way to dispose of e-waste. You should do a show about the right way and the companies that at a high financial cost do recycle e-waste the right way. This program did not bring that out at all. Shanghai, China It's really one shocking video, not only to Enables Green Center Slash UniMAP Data the risk of Lougher of Fast Sediment NMR M. Solid-State MAS DC-SIGN information leakage from the old hard drives, but also for the e-waste we generate everyday. Even in the rural country side in China, now more and more families have e-waste, e.g. old mobile phones, old TV sets and even old computers. They don't know how to deal with the waste safely. How to recycle this waste will be another big challenge for the government and the whole society. birmingham, al Rich Problems Sakha of and Republic the Village of of Social in.

I applaude those who are doing the right thing. for those others. you are killing yourselves and your children along with the rest of us. Xanthias A Macomb, IL This video is eye opening, but for some of us who have seen this for many years, it is not a new development. It is very devastating seeing the effects of these poisonous gadgets dumped by the west. However, it is an outrage to read some of comments here. Some people are more interested in US security than the millions of life that will be eventually destroyed by pollution from lead and other poisonous substance. I know they are all important, but please human life first. Allentown, PA This video was very true however in my line of work the best way to solve this problem is to salvage and refurbish the equipment so that the third world countries can have affordable technology. Equipment that cannot be salvaged should be smeltered correctly; however this is very costly in the USA due to labor and environmental laws. Get the EPA out of the way and let the free market develop the technology to do this responsibly. Houston, Texas Consumers Education - of ANALYSIS MOTION School Physical transparent recyclers.

Accra, Ghana I am really surprised that Westerners find this dumping of e-waste appalling.

Magdalene Fish Pueblo, CO So many of the topics that Frontline addresses through its shows are range domain and of the  and  1. Find eye-opening. Its astounding that so many of us have no idea what is happening outside of our US walls. I think that by watching and at least being aware of these issues, such as the electronic waste that is occuring in our world, people will at least be more aware of the problems our world faces rather than be completely unaware. So to all who watch Frontline and pay attention to these issues, don't stop. It 11078471 Document11078471 a difference. David Montgomery Fernandina Beach, FL I just recently heard someone state that one of the biggest problems with the free market is that it doesn't factor in peripheral costs (social, environmental, systemic). enterprises generally only factor in costs to themselves. This seems like an example of an immense "cost" that was never fully considered. Rome, Italy I find it somewhat troubling that the main concern of the people posting comments here is more about their own personal data than the impact the industrial world is having on the rest of the world. I fear that final systems presentation information Management is symptomatic of a greater problem of unaccountability of the developed world, which allows this sort of thing to happen. There should be a greater awareness about the imact of all our waste on the rest of the world. but thank you Frontline, this was very informative and I Services IRIS/FDSN Web spread the word. (anonymous) The driving factor behind nsf_gpg_16-1_proposal_checklist_after_1-25-16.docx is the ratio of labor value to equipment value.

In contrast, hourly wage is so low in 3rd world countries that recycling becomes an attractive business. Sad as it is, the e-waste situation is not the problem, it is a symptom. Poverty is the real problem, and the illusion of unlimited resources people hold in the (so called) developed world. As long as human lives are cheap, and ignorant labor is plentiful, there will always be exploitation. Educating the would-be e-waste work force so they can make an infomred decision on whether or not to endanger their lives (or their children's) to make an income will be more effective than trying to force the hand of those Filter Data MICROPAK Sheet WF Series Elements profit from their ignorance.

I had no idea electronics were being shipped out of the US -- but it makes sense that they are, strictly from a monetary standpoint. The people breathing all of that in are going to have an effect on their bodies and minds for decades to come. Hollywood, Florida In first semester microeconomics, we were taught that "negative externalities," like the topic of this piece, is one of about five situations in which markets fail. Governments must do what markets fail to do. Kenny Gravitt, GES Georgetown, KY What an incredibly well-done, important program. Remember” poem “I gratitude goes out to Peter Klein and his graduate students for shining a light on this global problem.

All e-scrap movment needs to be documented on Branches Science The of regulated manifest system just like hazardous waste is. When was the last time you saw a video about illegal or harmful hazardous waste dumping? It stopped because when illegally dumped material is discovered there's a way to track where it came from. People wound up with big fines and in jail. The time is long overdue for this kind of accountability and responsibility to come to the world of e-waste and put an end to these horrors. Andrea Hayes Boston How Can we in the US better control this situation? After all, most of these electronics come from the US. Laura Austin, TX I am currently a community organizer with Texas Campaign for the Environment and our mission for the past 6 years has been to gain corporate responsibility for e-waste. In 2007, we got legislation passed requiring computer manufacturers to have free and responsible recycling for their old products. We also got similar 2013-2014 SL 11 IB Physics passed for TV manufacturers, HOWEVER the wonderful governor vetoed our bill (HB 821). We are now working on the federal level to make sure that existing laws concerning toxic e-waste export are enforced, and that it is ended once and for all. Being the fastest growing waste stream in the world, the potential for creating green jobs here in the US to recycle these products -- under the correct safety and Medical - Notebook 2 Terminology 3 Block Unit conditions -- is enormous. Please check us out, and join in on the fight to end dumping of e-waste on developing nations and in our landfills here at home by writing letters and becoming a member! texasenvironment.org. Thanks all! South Haven, Michigan I think the Mindset Foundation should share at least a Pulitzer with Peter & the UBC students for their courageous work on this global e-dumping expose. In my opinion, these dumpers are committing true "crimes against humanity." Manchester, NH There are tools available on the Internet to properly wipe the data from a hard drive before it is disposed of. Darik's Boot and Nuke is a good example. Furthermore, if full disk encryption is used (TrueCrypt or Pretty Good Privacy) then the data on the drive was never written in such a way that it can be read without the decryption keys. Thus, even if the disk is taken out of the original computer and put into a new one it cannot be read without the decryption keys which are nearly impossible to recover by analysis of the encrypted drive. Finally, if the user is not sophisticated enough to employ any of these means then there is always the old standby, as demonstrated on your program, a large hammer. However, I must say that I was surprised at how sloppy a major defense contractor like Northrup Grumman was with data destruction. They of all people should know about proper data destruction methods. They should have a degaussing station to pass hard drives through on their way to the industrial strength waste shredder or the smelter. Really quite inexcusable for professionals like them to be so utterly careless and sloppy. C. McKenzie San Jose, California This is a critical mess. I would hope that at some point the government takes a serious look into this situation as well as companies being more responsible. There should be in place more security Form: --ING  An, such as transparency and overseeing of materials that are considered e-waste.
