Amazon???s Footprint in the Environment and Economy

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on April 1, 2015 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Abstract

 

Environmental issues and employee diversity rates of Amazon.com Inc are of concern to both society and stakeholders. The question is whether or not they are fullfilling society’s expectations on how they should operate. Whilst there are areas in need of improvement, it appears that Amazon.com Inc. are quite the revolutionary leaders in their field, ahead of their competitors due to their active nature of addressing key issues and implementing positive change ...

Goal 68 - Kayak the Swan River

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 15, 2015 at 7:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I’ve never been a fan of water, especially lakes, rivers and the ocean. Who knows what’s just below the surface but I just had to try kayaking and wow . . . what a ball !!!

 

Turns out it was so much fun and I wasn’t even worried once about falling in, although the kayaks were made hard to capsize. The water was so warm, it was like sitting in a bath . . . albeit on a floatie. The weather was so warm, the sky was bright blue and a nice cool breeze hung aroun...

Goal 17 - Visit the Perth Zoo

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 12, 2015 at 7:05 PM Comments comments (0)



Like a child, I excitedly envisioned the animals on my mental list as preferable to see, as I paid my dues to enter the Perth Zoo. I had wanted to visit for so many years but hadn’t made the effort and now I waited with abated breath and hope that this experience would be as fun as when I was a mere child.

 

I was surprised that there were hardly any patrons in...

Goal 11 - Swim 50 laps regularly of the local pool - Never give up!

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 9, 2015 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Swimming is like a chore, something you just don’t want to get around to doing and easy to procastinate about. Sure, there are some who enjoy it but it’s like running, something that’s hard to fathom how people can enjoy it. I just can’t seem to get my head around that one. But after smashing back my pre-workout shake, setting out on foot and indulging myself in my latest obse...

Make 2015 the year of living!

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 7, 2015 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Although The Ankara Project began in 2011, little amount of effort or passion was interweaved into the goals and idealisations but it is now time to start afresh in this fantastic year of 2015 and we want you to come on board.

 

After years of undeveloped goals and aspirations, little has amounted in terms of quality memories, adventures and challenges, resulting in a life so bare it amounts to nothing more than a common life which we have come to dread.

Arrests, anger at island camp

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 28, 2014 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

The Noongar population of Perth have been protesting against the Government’s $1 billion offer to settle native title claims. “Freedom of assembly and expression on matters of concern to citizens is necessary for the existence of an open, participatory democracy” (Commonwealth Secretariat, 2006: 103). The issue of protesting is legitimate but this is exacerbated by what the police may regard as anti-social behaviour such as disobeying orders not to camp or light fires, there...

Police lockup staffing 'risky'

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 21, 2014 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Police are being forced to station country lockups singlely, putting themselves and the prisoners at risk. A prisoner has the right to be provided with adequate food, water, medical services, exercise and items of personal hygiene, which may place additional burdens on a sole police officer charged with the tasks of supervising prisoners. Not only can it affect the prisoner themselves but also the officer, particularly if they require urgent assistance. Indigenous, young people, the aged and ...

Police use technology to target drug users

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 14, 2014 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (1)

Police are using the latest scanning technology to target drivers with past drug convictions in addition to the regular scanning attributes such as licence checks and arrest warrants. The additional drug and conviction screening, although may deter some from offending, appears to be of a discriminatory nature. A portion of society has already been punished for their crimes but may for a long time, be a target of the police service in a bid to target active users and criminals.

Police called to major disturbance on Nauru

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on January 7, 2014 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Asylum seekers at the immigration detention centre located in Nauru have initiated a protest as a result of slow-claim processing. Although the Commonwealth Secretariat define asylum seekers as “someone yet to be considered for refugee status under immigration laws” (2006: 138), it is clear that the asylum seekers have no chance of being settled in Australia as a result of a deal announced by Kevin Rudd.

 

Refugees have the right to seek asylum in another country...

Aboriginals face police racism

Posted by StreetkidIndustries on December 31, 2013 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

The police appear to be extremely racist towards the Indigenous populations, resulting in high levels of arrest for minor offences such as ‘swearing at a police officer’ in addition to a large number of Prohibited Behaviour Orders being issued. These in particular seem to affect those who are homeless and affected by alcohol and mental health issues. This means that those receiving those orders are banned from the locality in question for a period of two years, which may be imposs...
