Drunk without drinking?

No one enjoys the taste of vodka, or the ample amounts you must drink in order to get that drunk you wish to have. Lets face it, there must be a safe alternative to consumption of such large amounts of Alcohol. Well, Russian Professor, Evgeny Moskalev has an invention to complement all of these issues. He has invented a way to transfer Liquid alcohol such as vodka, whiskey, and even beer into a condensed powder form that can be packed into a potent pill. Now, consumers can take a pill form of alcohol not have to worry about people spiking their drink. These pills can be handy at parties because you can track the exact dosage you are consuming rather than relying on an inaccurate measurement of estimate. Although this may seem like a useful alternative to liquid form of alcohol many questions may arise from this sketchy creation. How can you trust these pills you are buying, knowing they could be packed full with some other harmful drug? What are the side effects of these extremely potent pills? The majority of these questions remain unanswered and may be the reason these pills have yet to be sold in Canada.

Here is a link thats goes into more detail about these unusual pills Moskalev has proposed.

WalMart, one of America’s largest department stores known for their low prices and large variety of products, has been the circle of much controversy over the years. WalMart’s unethical business practices being the target. A major issue is the fact that products are said to have been “manufactured in the US,” when really a large number of products are created in workshops overseas. Not only are they lying to their customers but they are essentially promoting these unethical practises. WalMart’s worldwide locations as well as the vast amount of stores in the US has employed more than any other company in the US. Although, a large part of their staff live below the poverty line and make less than 20,000 dollars a year.

 Women are even more underpaid then men and women have been the target of discrimination by the corporation over the years. Promotions and training have been given to men and not women in the past. WalMart is the largest employer of women in the states, but if these practices continue will that still be true? Can WalMart continue their success while having so many unethical issues under their belt? Maybe their reign will come to an end sometime.

Check out the two links below where I found much discussion over these and numerous other unethical issues walmart has been accused of!
