Slavery

Slavery

New American nation dealt with slavery in various ways. To start with, the new nation adopted a new constitution in 1776 that would empower the slaves and strengthen equality among all Americans. Initially, many colonists relied on Slavery to carry out casual labor in their tobacco, indigo and rice farms. Thomas Washington led others to denounce slavery and referred it as “Repugnant (Crf.org, 2014). The new nation tried to rectify the sacred rights of the slaves who were initially being captivated and sold like any other products. Jefferson wrote to the King of England advocating for equality among all people.

Independent Nation

When the Colonial fustian proposed an independent American nation, many people realized that it was the end of oppression and start of a new democratic America. Many families and children gained social confidence since there was no more classical identity. However, many blacks in the north were not fully satisfied by the independence. In 1816, some blacks pointed out Robert Finley of New Jersey, a leader of American Colonization Society as one of the people who mistreat the blacks yet the nation claims to be independent. Therefore declaration of independence in a new America was only meant for the whites. Sir Jefferson wrote to King of England complaining about slavery and mentioned that “all men are created equal”. However, his letter did not mention the Africa-American slaves. Therefore the independence was only for the whites (Brion,D, 2006).

The adoption and diffusion of environmental innovations among consumer electronics companies

Abstract

Environmental sustainability has become a pertinent issue for businesses in all industries. The climate change challenge has been the main driving force for the pursuit of environmental sustainability. Being a major contributor of pollution, the consumer electronics industry has been putting measures in place to address environmental sustainability challenges. Some of these innovative measures include coming up with new product designs and innovations in aspects like energy efficiency, manufacturing and delivery of products. This study has identified a gap of knowledge in determining whether or not there has been effective adoption and diffusion of the eco-innovations that these companies have developed over the years. This dissertation uses the quantitative research approach. Analyses of the data reveals a significant (p=0) moderate, positive relationship between the adoption of eco-designs and energy efficiency innovations and firm profitability at correlation index values of 0.60 and 0.58, respectively. The researcher concludes that consumer electronics companies are effective in the adoption and diffusion of eco-innovations. In addition, 11 areas of improvements have also been identified and the corresponding recommendations listed in the last chapter of this paper. Three areas of further studies have also been documented.
