  • why should the rich help the poor

    e face years of austerity and as incomes and tax revenues are declining,. Inequality in Britain is increasing faster than most rich nations в it is no coincidence that the most unequal societies are also the most dysfunctional. More tax cannot be the solution without international agreement and while we continue to vote for parties who are against increasing tax and for maintaining non-dom status for UK citizens. What has this got to do with charitable giving and why should we be bothered if it is falling? We have been giving since the beginning of time. We are programmed to be altruistic as well as competitive; just as the need to eat and procreate is rewarded by feeling good, the same applies to giving. Philanthropy helped us to establish the civil society we enjoy today and enabled law, education, hospitals, welfare and culture to flourish long before the industrial revolution required the state to address growing poverty. Today, perhaps because of the unprecedented material prosperity and massive debt created in the past 60 years, we are losing the plot. Just over half of us give to charities regularly but we seem to be giving less; the poor give proportionately more than the rich and only a. As austerity bites and some become even more selfish, we risk compromising our humanity as well as civil society.

    why do some emojis show up as boxes

    Unfortunatley, no. This is likely because you were sent emojis that aren't on, or supported by your device. While emojis are very popular, and span across nearly all social platforms, they still aren't "universal". This is because emojis work in several ways. 1. Code/image assumption. Entering (
    ) from one end. Some devices, services ect. detect these as a code for a corrilating emoji, and place an image from a database instead. 2. Embedded images. A more common type would be what services like facebook have.

    why should you not put ice on a burn

    THE FACTS Like a cup of tea for a, a batch of ice for a
    may seem like the perfect remedy for millions of Americans who will spend a little too much time in the sun this summer. But many home remedies that seem like common sense are less than helpful, and the old ice-for-a-burn technique is no exception. It can help soothe some initial pain, but in the end it will slow the healing process. That has been borne out over the years in various studies of simple treatments for minor scalds and sunburns. In one by Danish researchers in 2002, 24 healthy volunteers were inflicted with first-degree burns and subjected to different treatments. Those who received a cooling treatment similar to ice did not experience reduced pain or inflammation compared with those who received a placebo treatment. In in the journal Burns in 1997, another team of scientists compared easing burns with ice cubes for 10 minutes with other remedies and found that ice caused Бthe most severe damage.

    why the sky is high 3 version

    In the early days, when the sky was still low, two brothers named Ingat and Daskol lived with their parents on earth. As their names indicate, Ingat was careful in everything he did and was therefore his fatherБs right hand man. He was always helping with the work in the field and his parents were very pleased with him. On the other hand, Daskol did his work sloppily. In the absence of a daughter in the family, the house work came to be DaskolБs responsibility. He fetched water, cleaned the house, and did the cooking. He also did the pounding of the palay that his father and Ingat harvested. Even in pounding, Daskol lived up to his name. Half of the grain he pounded scattered and fell to the ground. Being naturally lazy and impatient, he did not like the work of pounding rice. One day, Daskol had to pound a greater quantity of palay than usual. He was irritated because every time he raised the pestle higher, and every time it hit the sky, the sky would be raised. In his hurry, Daskol did not notice that the sky was rising. When he finished pounding the rice, he looked up and discovered that the sky had risen and it is where it is today.

    why do rastafarians wear the star of david

    In the Kebra Negast King Salomon has the power to submit the demons, so that them works for him. But it's JAH that allow him to do that so no occult powers, only the power of HIS MAJESTY. You can find the star of Dawit (David) in many church in Ethiopia, the first that come in my mind is the church of Beta Maryam in Lalibela. The star of Dawit with the cross in the middle it's also the simbol of the Salomonic Dynasty of wich HIM QADAMAWI HAILE SELASSIE is the fullfilment and seal, so JAH as nothing to do with satan and mason. Let they say what they say.

    why do we stretch when we wake up

    Asked by: Solang Uk, Switzerland
    When you sleep, your muscles lose tone and fluid tends to pool along your back. Stretching helps to massage fluid gently back into the normal position. Also, your muscles protect themselves from over-extension by inhibiting the nerve impulses as they approach their limit.

    why do we round numbers up and down

    What is Rounding? Rounding means making a number simpler but keeping its value close to what it was. The result is less accurate, but easier to use. There are. Here we look at the
    common method, the one used by most people. Decide which is the last digit to keep Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up So: when the first digit removed is 5 or more, increase the last digit remaining by 1. Why does 5 go up? 5 is in the middle. so we could go up or down. But we need a method that everyone agrees to. So think about sport: we should have the same number of players on each team, right? And that is the common method of rounding. Read about. A farmer counted 87 cows in the field, but when he rounded them up he had 90. First work out which number will be left when we finish. Rounding to tenths means to leave one number after the decimal point. Rounding to hundredths means to leave two numbers after the decimal point. etc.

    why do we need to recycle things

    My last post,
    seems to have struck a chord with many. Leave it to the Care2 community to enlighten, elevate and express their opinions on why people do and do not recycle. Most of us believe that recycling is ethically the right thing to do. From the comments on the post, it was evident that sadly, we all seem to have friends, family and acquaintances that do not recycle. Below are some of the reasons why people do not recycle and why they should: 1. Recycling is inconvenient. This seems to be the number one reason why people dont recyclethey dont want to put in the extra effort. Some places have no pick-up. Some people say that they just cant be bothered. Is that a good enough reason? 2. I do not have enough space in my home to recycle. The lack of space is an issue for many. People dont want to see garbage cans with a little storage space for recycling bins on the side; the extra trash is an eyesore. Is that a good enough reason? 3. If they paid me, Id recycle. Some countries fine people for not recycling. Some regions pay for just bottle recycling (we know that works). Some areas have no penalties or incentives for recycling. Is that a good enough reason? 4.

    why would a dog bleed from the anus

These dogs present with bloody diarrhea and vomiting, and act very sick because they are.
