Chewing tobacco, more commonly known as Gutka in India, is a social concern in India; specifically in the northern states of India. Due to gutka being a social concern the state governments in India have begun to place a ban against the production and consumption of gutka. A ban is an official order that prohibits something, in this case it prohibits the production and selling of gutka. Gutka is a sweetened mixture of chewing tobacco combined with a mixture of two types of nuts, betel and palm nut. State governments have imposed a ban on the consumption and production of gutka; however it has not been implemented by the central government of India.
According to the following table smokeless tobacco (such as gutka) is consumed by 25.9% of the population which would be approximately 329 million people. As gutka is sold at nominal prices it’s easier to obtain than the other forms of tobacco. This allows the lower income groups to purchase and consume gutka rather than other forms of tobacco such as cigarettes, pan masala etc. This is supported by Table 1.

Urban Population Consuming Gutka


People in rural areas tend to be from an economically backward society and thus do not possess the same amount of money as people living in the urban areas. Individuals in urban areas also consume gutka, though, usually as a cheaper alternative to cigarettes and pan masala.

Gutka is a product that, through its consumption, adversely affects a third party: society, without harming the producers. This is a social cost towards society and is defined as a negative externality in consumption, as consumers are…...

...decision to give your life for the men you are fighting with, at least that’s how I understood it. I was a Marine Infantryman between the Gulf War 1 and 2. It meant a lot to me back then and in some way still does. Unfortunately for those who died, their loss has been minimized by multiple presidential administrations. The transfer of their remains from battlefield to their families has been hidden from us. The Transfer of Dead Americans from war should be seen by all, and their deaths are being minimized. The ban has since been lifted, but the damage has already been done. Sanitizing war only serves one purpose, free reign to start more wars. The Dover Ban is a federal ban that prohibits media coverage, including photographs, of public soldiers remains when they are returned to the United States. "Media coverage of the arrival of [] remains at the port of entry or at the interim stops will not be permitted..."(National Security Archive 1). Let us examine a few reasons why the ban was put in place. The first justification is to protect the privacy of the deceased and the deceased’s loved ones. Another is to reduce hardship on the families and friends of the deceased. But it is more likely because 58,220 died during the Vietnam War and there were almost no restrictions on causing many problems for the government. According to an article in Aljerzeera by Ted Rall "Pictures [of dead or dying American troops] are rarely seen from Iraq and Afghanistan”(4). "During the 1960s......

Smoking Bans

...Smoking Bans The smoking ban at Foothill College has been a school policy for over five years now. It’s implementation was originally virtuous, and by all means had good intentions, but it was also blind sighted. Smokers didn’t end up quitting, and nothing really changed. Over the years it was semi-enforced, but there were no real consequences, hence no point to the rule. Though the ban hasn’t really been enforced yet, I’m going to argue as if it is. Secondhand smoke is the primary argument for banning smoking, so that will be addressed. I will also emphasize on how smoking bans at colleges are morally wrong, ethically wrong, and a waste of resources. Many people hate cigarettes, and I don’t blame them. They are a disgusting habit that have no long term benefits whatsoever. It’s argued that schools banning smoking will not only help the people that don’t like cigarettes, but will help smokers quit. Stanford University recently made a smoking ban on part of their campus. In the article it says, "People still have the choice to smoke, but making it inconvenient to light up often helps those who wish to stop to achieve their desired goal (Richter). People can only smoke in the parking lots surrounding the multiple buildings that are now in the smoke free zone. This policy is morally and ethically wrong because smokers are now put in a corner. They either have to quit smoking, or walk away from their work, study, etc to smoke. It seems as if we don’t really have a...

Ban Plastic or Not

...including plankton and jellyfish, in the gyre. “It’s an endless stream of incessant plastic particles everywhere you look,” says Dr. Marcus Eriksen, director of education and research for the Algalita Marine Research Foundation, which studies plastics in the marine environment. “Fifty or 60 years ago, there was no plastic out there.” Following the lead of countries like Ireland, Bangladesh, South Africa, Thailand and Taiwan, some U.S. cities are striking back against what they see as an expensive, wasteful and unnecessary mess. This year, San Francisco and Oakland outlawed the use of plastic bags in large grocery stores and pharmacies, permitting only paper bags with at least 40 percent recycled content or otherwise compostable bags. The bans have not taken effect yet, but already the city of Oakland is being sued by an association of plastic bag manufacturers calling itself the Coalition to Support Plastic Bag Recycling. Meanwhile, other communities across the country, including Santa Monica, Calif., New Haven, Conn., Annapolis, Md., and Portland, Ore., are considering taking drastic legislative action against the bags. In Ireland, a now 22-cent tax on plastic bags has slashed their use by more than 90 percent since 2002. In flood-prone Bangladesh, where plastic bags choked drainage systems, the bags have been banned since 2002. The problem with plastic bags isn’t just where they end up, it’s that they never seem to end. “All the plastic that has been made is still around......

Smoking Ban

...nonsmoker that has been exposed to minute levels outside. People have a choice not to expose themselves to second- hand smoke outside. However there is not enough scientific research on exposure for outside second-hand smoke. But the surgeon general seems to think that exposure to indoor second hand smoke is the same as being exposed to outdoor second hand smoke. The surgeon general might be trying to scare people in to banning outdoor smoking. Nonsmoking groups should be focused on banning people who do smoke in cars, or in a house with children. Children themselves can’t make that choice to avoid second- hand smoke. How many times has someone witness a child exposed to second hand smoke in a car or walking with a parent? That’s were a smoking ban needs to be more focused on. Being outside, people can avoid themselves and their children to cigarette smoke. For people can move freely and avoid inhaling second hand smoke. It does not compare to being stuck inside and inhaling second smoke, where it does not dissipate like outside smoke. “Researchers at Stanford found that levels of tobacco smoke within three feet of a smoker outside are comparable to inside. But no evidence demonstrates that the duration of outdoor exposer—in places where people can move freely about—is long enough to cause substantial health damage” (Michael B. Siegel). If nonsmoking groups are so concerned about the negative effects on second- hand smoke, where is the outcry for auto mobile exhaust?......

Bag the Ban or Ban the Bag

...Ban the Bag or Bag the Ban: An In-depth Look Into Austin’s Ban on Single-Use Bags In today’s day and age, the topic of environmental sustainability and the protection of the environment are found at the basis of a multitude of political debates and arguments. The way we, and our government, view the protection of the environment and the impact we have on the world around us has shaped the types of policies that governments in the U.S. have passed. One of these policies which has been implemented in a variety of cities around the United States, including Austin, is the ban on single-use plastic and paper bags. This ban has been hotly debated, and there are many people who view it as beneficial and many others who see it as unnecessary and imposing. Either way the impacts of this policy are far-reaching in how it can affect customers, businesses, and the environment. In this paper, I will show the conflicting arguments in this ongoing debate, focusing on the bag ban implemented in Austin in early 2013. We will begin by looking at the two opposing sides to the argument. There are many groups of people who advocated for the implementation of a city ordinance banning single-use bags in Austin and who continue to support it. The Austin City Government, led by Mayor Lee Leffinwell, and the Austin Resource Recovery, formerly known as the Solid Waste Services (SWS) Department, were the main proponents who pushed the ordinance into effect. In addition, the Zero Waste Advisory......

Gun Ban

...Gun Ban Debate Gun ban debate In America guns have been a part of the country’s society since it’s birth. Throughout history the citizens of the US have used firearms to protect the nation, protect their families, to hunt for food and to engage in sporting activities. The issue of Guns and gun control takes on a proportion of extreme magnitude. Weighing the rights and liberties of the individual against the welfare and safety of the public has always been a precarious balancing act. In the United States, gun control is one of these tumultuous issues that has both sides firmly entrenched in their positions. Those parties in favor of gun ownership and the freedom to use and keep arms, rely on the fact that the provision for such rights is enshrined in their constitution. So what is gun control?. Gun control is the effort to restrict or limit the possession and use of guns. The gun control debate may be one of the most important issues in our society. Regardless of whether people support it or not, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the 2nd Amendment restrains the government’s ability to limit the kind of immediate ban of handguns that has existed in some parts of America such as Washington DC. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" That's the campaign that the National Riffle Association made. It's a compelling argument whether it might be right , or it might be wrong . ...

Smoking Ban

...different positions on the smoking ban which are presented in the texts. In text one, we meet Robin McKie who is a science editor of the British newspaper, The Observer. The statement itself in text one is definitely clear. It already appears from the title “Benefits of smoke ban will be felt at once”. He claims that the smoking ban will actually benefit the people of England. Robin McKie’s argumentation is very objective, and is based on scientific documentation which supports his claim. All the numbers and fact that are given up throughout the text, makes it obviously very difficult for anybody to argue against the claim of the science editor. However, in text two, it is a completely different opinion that appears. The text is written by A.N Wilson, a British novelist and biographer, who claims that the smoking ban definitely will affect Britain negatively. In contrast to Robin Mckie, A.N Wilson uses examples of many well-known English novelists who had been smoking during their famous works, as a support for his statement. Furthermore he explains how the smoking ban symbolizes an attack on the basic liberty as it denies the right of a human decision whether to smoke or not. The claim of the last text separates from the former texts. The text is written by Simon Jenkins who is a British newspaper columnist. Simon Jenkins explains that if it was a decision that should have been made by local authorities, it would then be a good thing to have a smoking ban. At the same......

Evaluate the Dominant Economic Traits of the Tea Industry in Pakistan. 2. How Ray Ban is Using Music, Architecture and the Human Experience to Sell Sunglasses 3. Create IFAS & EFAS for Tapal Tea. March, 2015 Karachi, Pakistan IQRA UNIVERSITY INTRODUCTION Ray-Ban is a brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses founded in 1937 by American company Bausch & Lomb.[1] The brand is best known for their Wayfarer and Aviator styles of sunglasses. In 1999, Bausch & Lomb sold the brand to the Italian Luxottica Group for a reported $640 million.[2] HISTORY OF Ray-Ban The history of the Ray-Ban Aviator dates back to the 1930s, when new airplanes allowed people to fly higher and farther. Many US Army Air Service pilots were reporting that the glare from the sun was giving them headaches and altitude sickness. In 1929, US Army Air Corps Lieutenant General John MacCready asked Bausch & Lomb, a Rochester, New York-based medical equipment manufacturer, to create aviation sunglasses that would reduce the headaches and nausea experienced by pilots, which are caused by the intense blue and white hues of the sky,[3][4] a new kind of glasses were introduced. The prototype, created in 1936 and known as ‘Anti-Glare’, had plastic frames and green lenses that could cut out the glare......

That’s because I want the story of Powes Parkop’s buai ban disaster to go down into internet archives in a way that it can be retrieved many years from now and people of the future will learn from the mistakes of today. The Port Moresby buai ban is almost like a clown show, hilarious in the level of ineptness that its implementers have displayed. It would all be worth a few loud and long laughs if there were not so many tragic elements. I personally believe that our governor should have stuck to paying huge amounts of money to local rental car companies and equally outrageous sums to shady road construction supply companies as was revealed before the 2012 election when NCDC audit records came to light, the findings of which, incidentally, the governor tried at first to escape from, then defended with vague generalities hoping that no one would catch his trick. Be that as it may, the Governor’s earlier sins are fairly well established. However if Governor Parkop had stuck to kickbacks, he probably would have kept his shiny reputation. After all, it is common knowledge that kickbacks are one......

Smoking Ban?

...SMOKING BAN? As the years go by and society changes new laws surface to protect us from harm. Or do they? The laws today compared to the laws from decades ago have morphed and changed dramatically; some for the good and others for the worse. For example, in today’s day and age it is hard to discipline children and give a little tough love when they misbehave in public places. If a parent is caught in the act of spanking their child due to disciplinary reasons the parent can be fined, jailed, or even worse, have social services called on the parent or parents and have their children stripped from them. There is a major difference between abuse and a subtle smack on the wrist or behind and most parents understand the difference. Twenty years ago seeing a child get their behind busted would of been no big deal. Today’s new laws seem to be all or nothing in the aspect that there are hardly few reasonable limitations and boundaries. These new laws may be about protecting our safety and well-being, but if we look behind the curtain some of these new laws are starting to represent how far the state and or federal government will go to the extent of controlling how Americans should live. A state wide law that seems to be becoming popular in the United States this past couple decades is the smoking ban. Over half of the United States contains these laws and the 100% smoking ban law prohibits smokers from smoking in any enclosed establishment as well as some outdoor......

To Ban or Not to Ban

...Dawn Branscombe 21st Century Skills: Critical Thinking and Problem Solving March 20, 2016 Chip Hellman To Ban or Not to Ban With gun violence on the rise, some lawmakers have decided to argue for the banning of guns. (Vizzard, 2015) Over the years, there have been many arguments between citizens and lawmakers whether to ban guns or not. With mass shootings in Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, and Arizona in recent years, the argument has been brought back to the surface. However, still no gun control legislation has been passed (Vizzard, 2015). The second amendment states individuals have the right to bear arms (Sipf, 2015) protecting themselves from harm. The right to bear arms is a constitutional right; legally protecting oneself should be the right of every living person, and should not be taken away. The second amendment was set in a time very different from current days. There were no school shootings, no gang activity, and there were no movie theaters for a person to walk into and start shooting. The gun policy has not changed in decades, with that, does the second amendment still apply. In 1993, both the Brady Handgun Prevention Act (commonly termed the Brady Law) which had expired in 2004 and federal assault weapon restrictions laws were passed, since then little impact has been seen. (Vizzard, 2015) After a group of mass shootings happened around the United States, a few of the states have “placed additional restrictions on magazine capacities of......

Smoking Ban

...Natallia Harry Professor Deavers ENG 111/9 12.09.09 Smoking bans Lately, the health hazards connected with "passive smoking" or "second-hand smoke" - also known as "environmental tobacco smoke”, have been gradually getting increased recognition. The majority of people in modern society are aware that smoking can cause health problems not only in smokers but in people nearby. In recent years many cities, districts and whole states have cracked down on smoking in public. As of October 2009, nearly 60 percent of the U.S. population, or more than 175 million people, live in areas that have passed strong smoke-free laws covering restaurants and bars – a figure that has nearly doubled in size in three years ( Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids). While the purpose of smoke-free laws is to protect health, some have expressed concern that an unintended side effect might be economic losses, especially within the hospitality industry. In fact, according to the Report of the Surgeon General ,who is the leading spokesperson on matters of public health in the federal government, “The results of all credible peer- reviewed studies show that smoke-free policies and regulations do not have a negative impact on business revenues … and they are the most effective way to improve worker and business health”( Report of the Surgeon General). The number of smokers in America is truly a staggering number; according to an in-depth study by the Institute of Medicine,......

Smoking Ban

...Katie Smith Shaniquewa Jackson Mr. High Research Paper 3-19-12 Why America Should Ban Smoking Tobacco has been around for more than four hundred years and is still very popular as of today. Millions of Americans smoke cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products on a daily basis that is harmful to the body. However, smoking has become one of the biggest controversies in today's society. This personal experience clearly shows that smoking needs to be banned. “Gail Routh worked as a flight attendant for nearly twenty-seven years. Routh was a nonsmoker all her life, but after working in contact with secondhand smoke on airplanes she contracted lung cancer. Gail Routh sued the tobacco industry for lung cancer and bronchitis that was linked to the expose to secondhand smoke (Hudson, 2004).” In 1964, the United States Surgeon General declared that smoking was bad for one's health and was related to lung cancer. Therefore, smoking should be banned in all public places to prevent contracting lung cancer from first or second hand smoke, enable those with lung conditions to be able to hold jobs in places that they would not be able to because of the smoke in the air, and help businesses keep their employees safer while generating more revenue, which in turn would save thousands of lives each year. Tobacco use kills nearly 470,000 Americans each year and is among one of the leading causes of preventable death. Smoking is also legal at the age eighteen in the United States;......
