peter singers 3 main arguments
Weegy: In "Famine, Affluence, and Morality",[31] one of Singer's best-known philosophical essays, he argues that some people living in abundance while others starve is morally indefensible. [ Singer proposes that anyone able to help the poor should donate part of their income to aid poverty relief and similar efforts. Singer reasons that, when one is already living comfortably, a further purchase to increase comfort will lack the same moral importance as saving another person's life.[32] Singer himself reports that he donates 25 percent of his salary to Oxfam and UNICEF[33] and he is a member of Giving What We Can, an international society for the promotion of poverty relief inspired by Singer's arguments.[34] In "Rich and Poor", the version of the aforementioned article that appears in the second edition of Practical Ethics,[35] his main argument is presented as follows: If we can prevent something bad without sacrificing anything of comparable significance, we ought to do it; absolute poverty is bad; there is some poverty we can prevent without sacrificing anything of comparable moral significance; therefore we ought to prevent some absolute poverty. Singer's most recent book, The Life You Can Save, makes the argument that it is a clear-cut moral imperative for citizens of developed countries to give more to charitable causes that help the poor. While Singer acknowledges that there are problems with ensuring that money goes where it is most needed and that it is used effectively, he does not think that these practical difficulties undermine his original conclusion (that people should make a much greater effort to reduce poverty). ] (More)

a. Explain three counter-arguments to Singer’s position that he addresses in the article, and then indicate Singer’s responses to those counter-arguments
Weegy: "Famine, Affluence, and Morality" is an essay written by Peter Singer in 1971 and published in Philosophy and Public Affairs in 1972. [ [ It argues that affluent persons are morally obligated to donate far more resources to humanitarian causes than is considered normal in Western cultures. The essay was inspired by the starvation of Bangladesh Liberation War refugees, and uses their situation as an example, although Singer's argument is general in scope. The essay is anthologized widely as an example of Western ethical thinking. ] ] User: a.peter singers three counter-arguments Weegy: Peter Beckett born in the Aigburth section of Liverpool England on August 10th, Peter was greatly influenced by going to see the Beatles perform at the famous Cavern Club.

6.3 Explain how to protect themselves when lifting and handling children and equipment in the work setting
Weegy: If you are asked to lift and carry pupils or equipment as part of your job, you should receive appropriate training. [ By the time a child is of primary age, it will be difficult for you to lift them on your own and it is unlikely that you will be asked to. However, if you are working with pupils who have special educational needs (Additional Support for Learning Needs), lifting them with hoists or other equipment may be part of your daily routine. You should be aware of the risk of spine and back muscle injury and should make sure that you follow the correct procedures. A quarter of all accidents involving staff in schools are caused by moving heavy objects. As part of the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, your employer should make sure that you always follow correct guidelines when lifting pupils or equipment. You should also be aware of the dangers of bending over small desks or tables as this can also lead to problems – it is always better to crouch down and keep a straight back. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, all adults have a duty to look after themselves. ] (More)
