Introduction to report writing

Not only were the Easons willing to take Quita, but they would gladly do so through the simple device of a power of attorney document, about 400 words long. The paper is signed by the old parents and the new guardians, and witnessed by a notary. As happened in Quita's case , no lawyers or government authorities are involved. The document is filed nowhere; it functions, in essence, as a receipt. Such agreements fail to satisfy the ICPC when custody of the child is exchanged across state lines and authorities in both states aren't involved. But that hasn't stopped some parents from handling transfers this way.

In a smart city information is shared and processed so that social problems can be tackled, and the city made more sustainable and cost-efficient, with greater quality of life. Residents thus feel that they have more influence on their surroundings, and get more involved in the town/city and its other residents. More and more people, machines and objects are connected to the internet, and generate data. Combining this data enables smart solutions. For instance, it will be possible to manage traffic movements in cities better, make economies when collecting rubbish, guide motorists to available parking spaces or improve air quality.

However, it has long been argued that prices don’t truly reflect the full cost of things, so either the signal is incorrect, or comes too late. The price signal also implies the poorest often pay the heaviest costs. For example, commercially over-fishing a region may mean fish from that area becomes harder to catch and more expensive, possibly allowing that ecosystem time to recover (though that is not guaranteed, either). However, while commercial entities can exploit resources elsewhere, local fishermen will go out of business and the poorer will likely go hungry (as also detailed on this site’s section on biodiversity ). This then has an impact on various local social, political and economic issues.
