many are developing ways to increase and conserve their supplies of fresh water. China. people are U~. Toovercome these problems.250 litres of fresh water a day. One such solution is desalination. Another example is Saudi Arabia. The challenge. with its rapid industrial growth. nowadays. (436 words) v . Consequently.As the demand for fresh water has grown. the process by which salt water is converted into drinkable fresh water. desalination is an expensive process using large amounts of energy. The hope is that the technology currently being developed will lower the costs and help solve the problem of water shortages in many parts' of the world. In the United Arab Emirates (UAE). One place which has used desalination for many . China. yet many people take water for granted. the public are encouraged to limit their consumption. Since then. years is the United Arab Emirates. To supply water to 25% of the world's population living within 25 kilometres of the sea. one of the driest countries in the world. but research is . However. The first desalination plant was established in the UAEin 1960. water Shortages can still occur because ofleakages and the subsequent loss of billions of Iitres of water. there is growing concern that our water supplies will not prove adequate. Some of this fresh water is then sold to industry. In areas near the coast. In addition. Unfortunately. whereby salt water is purified by passing it through membranes. Governments will be obliged to ensure that water companies operate efficiently and the public will learn that water is a precious resource to be used economically.OOO-kilometre coastline and convert sea water into fresh water. salt water has been taken from the East China Sea and converted into fresh water. Since 1958. To maximize efficiency. a process which has traditionally been carried out by heating the water {the thermal method}. a cheaper and more flexible method has been developed. is to do this on a much larger scale.l:>1111Ullg realize how precious it is. has used these two methods to exploit its 32.7 pillion litres of fresh water will be required daily in the UAE. and nowadays most of the drinking water in the country is supplied by this process. Experts forecast that in 2015. As a result.. (380 words) B Providing water Global demand for water is increasing as experiencing large population growth. due to the increased use of modern technology in our homes.. However. whereby salt and contaminants are removed from the water. this alone will not be enough to solve the problem. more desalination plants are expected to be built in the future. for centuries man has experimented with different methods of converting salt water into fresh water in a process called desalination. but 98% of this is undrinkable salt water. and the remainder is sold as drinking water. 2. an obvious solution to this problem is to find ways of utilizing the abundant supply of water from the sea. Even where the water supply is adequate. the average daily consumption of water has risen to as much as 150 litres per person in recent years. This method is used most effectively in combination with the thermal method. It installed the first desalination plants in 1972. and consequently more countries will turn to desalination as the solution to their decreasing water supplies. The water crisis is not a problem unique to dry countries. so has the importance of desalination. This involves the removal of salt compounds and other chemicals from the salt water. One of the largest plants in the world has been constructed there. and the water companies are being forced to repair pipes. producing 56. The demand for water will increase throughout this century. Toovercome the shortage of both. New flltration systems have been developed to replace the traditional methods. esalination has also d helped compensate for the lack of natural fresh water. currently being carried out into the development of more efficient technology using a combination of different methods. producing 300 billion litres annually. using water from the PacificOcean to produce fresh water to generate electricity. whose desalination plants produce almost 25% of the world's desalinated water. which used a heating process.the majority of it being produced by desalination. The main disadvantage of this method has been the cost. has also experienced an increased demand for water as well as energy.A World of water Water is essential to life and we depend on it. some is used in the production of energy. and with it the demand for water. as water shortages become more widespread due to global warming. As the population of the world increases.the Chinese have successfully combined a desalination plant with a power station in Zhejiang Province. Water covers 70% of the surface of the earth. In countries with relatively high rainfall. China built a combined power and desalination plant in Zhejiang Province in the 1970s. .

Consequently. and despite the fact thatthere has been a substantial increase in income for a small minority of people. those countries which continue to support all their industries usually do not develop expertise in any one. Similarly. Which argument is correct? Improved income? An argument in favour of globalization is that the benefits of increased international trade are shared among everyone in the country. where per capita income rose from about $1400 in 1980 to over $4000 by 2000. globalization often encourages a country to focus on industries which are already successful.Y.

Anti-globalists cl~iI1lthat there is a serious flaw in this argument for the specialization of industry. One simple definition is that it is the rapid increase in international free trade. This debate wiHit1l).Globalization: is it a force for good or for bad? Globalization is defined in many ways.on one or two main industries are forced to import : other goods. per capita income rose by over 100% in India between 1980 and 1996. the vast majority have only seen a slight improvement. it would seem that a for better balance between free trade and fair trade is the answer to the problems of globalization.Uncreasetheir gross domestic product (GDP)or gross national product (GNP).

Large sporting events such as the World Cup and the Olympics receive lucrative television contracts which enable them to fund their events. The TV networks pay for these contracts with money from companies who advertise during these televised events. The cost of advertising on TV varies, and it is difficult to calculate the true amount. However, it has been claimed that "a prime time 30-second slot on Australian TV costs $400,000." (Sinden, 2004, p. 487). Companies will also use sports personalities to advertise their products. For the sports personality, it is an easy way to increase their income. One example of this is Tiger Woods, who earned $ 75 million in ;W05 off the golf course.

Although many cities compete to host large sports events such as the World Cup or the Grand Prix, many of them are left with large debts after the event is over. 1 (2003) claims that "estimates for the costs are always inferior to the actual needs" (p. 67). There are various reasons for this. but according to Vince (2006). few organizers take into consideration the real rate of inflation. and this results in large debts. These debts can prove to be long lasting. Smallridge 2 argues "remaining debts can stay with a host city for many decades" ' _ Nevertheless, cities still compete to hold the Games, seeing them as advantageous for the community.
