  4. Zach’s Most Important Things in Life • Personal: I like to believe that everything in life happens for a reason and that even when something tragic/bad happens in your life that you will gain something from the experience and that we as people are always learning. • Social life: My family is very important to me and always comes first, however I try to always have a very close group of friends • Material life: I would like too make enough money for a stable life with some insurance that if something bad happens that I have the means to fix it. • Occupation: I believe that having a job that you enjoy as long as it allows you to have reasonable living conditions is important. This is because is you have a job you enjoy you are never working a day in your life. • Recreation: Some of the hobbies I enjoy doing is fishing, snowboarding, and cleaning my car. I really love to just be outdoors. • Political: I believe that is important to stay politically informed as well as to participate in elections.

  5. Technological Advances in Agriculture • With the ever growing population comes a need to feed the more and more people • However with the new technologies producing more food faster results in the depletion of arable lands • The agricultural techniques now used lead to erosion and loss of productivity cause by overuse • The world Resources Institute estimated that in 2000 almost 40% of agricultural lands are depleted in one way or another • • •

  6. Personal Life • To keep a steady and stress less mind • Have close friends to be able to communicate to • Want only what I need and be happy with what I have • Get into a career that I would love • Be able to enjoy tennis throughout my life • Hope the economy is better in the future

  7. The Use of Plastics • Chemicals used to make plastic is harmful to humans and wildlife • The life span of plastic is a few centuries, and society tends to find plastic objects useless within ten years • The continuous making of plastics is needed for new technology, and at the same time puts the earth and its occupants in danger • Although the use of plastic is helpful in sustaining my material life, it is harming other aspects of my personal agenda •
