them to share stories if they do not wish to. For example, sometimes I play games on my sister’s cell phone, but I do not go through her text messages because those are private to her. I believe fidelity means to keep your promises and agreements; and to be a person of your word. This principle is important because it is through keeping promises that a person proves himself/herself as reliable and dependable. If someone says that they will do something they should try their best to do it. I

often do follow this principle, however, there have been times where I also broke my promises even if they were not completely important. A few weeks ago I promised my family friend I would go to the mall with her, however, I did not go because I later realized I should use that time to work on a group project for school instead. In this situation, my decision related to utilitarianism which states an action is right if it creates happiness for the greater number of people. By breaking my promise I may have hurt one person, my family friend, but I made five group members happy by completing my portion of the project. Of the many moral principles, the main ones that I believe in are beneficence, autonomy, honesty, privacy, and fidelity. These principles contribute to my personality, who I am, and whether I perform good or evil acts. To: Muhtar Kent The Coca-Cola Company One Coca-Cola Plaza

Atlanta, GA 30313 USA Coca-Cola Many individuals around the world lean towards Coca Cola when it comes to having a beverage. Whether it is the sweet taste, the affordable price, or the variety of sizes; thousands of people drink Coca- Cola beverages on a daily basis. However, these thousands of people are unaware of the negative effects the company has on developing villages, and the unethical ways Coca – Cola treats its workers in other countries. Kala Dera is a large village outside of Jaipur, India where agriculture is a main source of income/living. Although Coca-Cola knew this, it unethically began a bottling operation in Kala Dera in 2000, and about a year later the villagers saw a quick decrease in groundwater levels. It was later confirmed by the Indian Resource Center that Coca-Cola’s bottling plant operated in an overexploited groundwater area, resulting in harsh effects. There was also an assessment done by The Indian Resource Center, which stated that by operating the bottling plant in Kala Dera, it would lead to a worsening water condition. The plant also causes lots of unnecessary stress for the already very poor villagers. For example, a loss of groundwater results into loss of income for farmers. Women also have to travel another five to six kilometres to get water for their families as stated by The Indian Resource Center. Not only that, but worst of all many children are forced to leave schools to help with household chores because their mothers have extra burdens. The summer months are the worst for the residents of Kala Dera because that is when there are more water shortages. Ironically, the summer is also when Coca-Cola makes the most money due to the high demand of beverages in the North American heat.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
