  • A Rite Of Passage - 863 words
    A Rite of Passage An Evaluation If you read the paper, peruse People magazine, or spend any time watching the tabloid TV shows, you would have the strong impression that what Lorena Bobbitt did to her husband, John Wayne Bobbitt, in the wee hours of June 23 in Manassas, Virginia, was the equivalent of the shot heard round the world. You might think that Lorena Bobbitt single-handedly avenged the sexual crimes that have been perpetrated against all women from the beginning of time. There is no denying the primal, gut-wrenching reaction to John Wayne Bobbitts wound. It is an unheard of crime, too horrible for men to contemplate, fascinating and appalling to women. It is understandably a major ...

  • Advances In Medical Technology - 917 words
    Advances In Medical Technology Advances in medical technology have done a great deal to produce miraculous cures and recoveries. In some circumstances however, these advances have created problems for the elderly. More aggressive technology approaches are used to extend the life of the elderly. On the whole the elderly, as well as others, welcome that development -- even if they fear some of its consequences. With these advances it has become possible to keep people in a vegetative state for almost unlimited periods of time. Moreover, there are situations in which neither the patient nor the family has the ability to bring such unhappy circumstances to an end. For this reason, advance direct ...

  • Animal Experimentation - 1,948 words
    Animal Experimentation ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION Holly Anderson was a strong supporter for animal rights. When she was a little girl, she saw a cat get run over by a car. As she watched it die slowly, some young boys were poking it with a stick. She screamed, "Why don't you leave that poor cat alone!" One boy replied, "We wanted to see if maggots will come out of its nose! Hey Jimmy!" the boy yelled at his friend, "Go get your firecrackers!" Holly started crying and ran away. From then on, she viewed all scientists who use animals to experiment on as immature little boys just trying to get a kick out of blood and guts. Not only did she not like what the scientists did to the animals, she was so ...

  • Attacked By A Friend - 722 words
    Attacked By A Friend Attacked by a friend Long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Really only four years ago on a Friday night in a small redneck town just west of Atlanta. We had just moved to a new home in the same city. My younger brother had a friend, whose name is Jason, spend the night at our new home. As the Friday evening wore on, I mostly stayed in my room on the internet. I did the best as I could to be as anti-social as I could. However, at last, all of the people I was talking to on CompuServe signed off and I was left all alone. Therefore, as hard as it was for me to go to my brothers room and play with him and his friend, I did it. I had a blast. The night was actually tur ...

  • Autobiographical Sketch - 537 words
    Autobiographical Sketch I was born on June 7, 1983 to two loving parents in the small town of Warrensburg, New York. I was the second of two children to be born to John and Jacqueline Farndell. In 1981 they were blessed with my brother Jason. The four of us lived in a small apartment in Warrensburg for two years. We then lifted our roots and moved to an even smaller town called Greenwich. This is where I currently live. We live in an old house that my father bought from my great-grandmother. I started school at the age of five. I attended Schuylerville Elementary School, which actually was closer to where we lived than Greenwich Elementary. At the end of my Kindergarten year my stable family ...

  • Bioterrorism - 1,831 words
    Bioterrorism You wake up early for work and kiss your family goodbye. On your daily transit you see a man drop a glass vial in the subway, but you think nothing of it. Moments later you become a statistic. A statistic of Bioterrorism. The threat of Bioterrorism, long ignored and denied, has heightened over the past years and needs to be publicly addressed. There are three possible solutions to this threat that are within grasp. The first of which would be a nation wide vaccination against all agents that could be used against the American public. Second, we could educate people to more efficiently spot the symptoms of such an act, or to protect themselves from an act that has already taken p ...

  • Bone Fractures - 1,435 words
    Bone Fractures Bone Fractures Thank goodness it's only a fracture. I thought it might be broken. People often think that a fracture is less severe than a broken bone, but fractures are broken bones. To understand why bones break, it helps to know what bones do and what they are made of. The bones of the body form the human frame, or skeleton, which supports and protects the softer parts of the body. Bones are living tissue. They grow rapidly during one's early years, and renew themselves when they are broken. Bones have a center called the marrow, which is softer than the outer part of the bone. Bone marrow has cells that develop into red blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of the bod ...

  • Chapel Talk - 1,652 words
    Chapel Talk Good morning. I don't think I can even begin to relate just how terrifying this is, so here's what I'm gonna do instead; I'll mumble, speak much too quickly, avoid all eye contact, and use overly-dramatic hand gestures. And since it's too early in the morning and school year to picture any of you naked, this'll have to do. In my lifetime, my family has owned and sheltered over one hundred and fifty dogs, cats, horses, goats, sheep, and various other species. My residence has acted as both a foster home and a rehab center for any animal we could make room for. Most stay with us permanently, but we haven't been lucky enough to help every animal we've come across. But the bliss of t ...

  • Concern Of The Health Care System - 492 words
    Concern of the Health Care System Throughout the United States there has been an overwhelming concern as to the status of the present health care system. Approximately 100,000 people lose their health insurance each month. Unfortunately the present system does little to nothing to aid these people. It is for this reason that various managed health care plans have come into existence and use. Managed health care is a system by which an outside body, such as a state or federal government places regulations on the health care process. St. Luke/ Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan is currently operating under a managed health care plan. Vickie Powell, In-patient Pharmacy Supervisor at St. Luke/ Roos ...

  • Date Rape Drugs - 1,858 words
    Date Rape Drugs Health Promotion : Date Rape Drugs The issue of substances used to facilitate date rape is one that deserves a great deal of attention. Over the years, there has been a dramatic increase in reports of drug misuse leading to sexual assault. It is necessary for everyone to be aware of the general threat of substance misuse and what to do if they think that they have been drugged. It is also important that people know how to keep a look out for drinks that have been tampered with so that they can take the appropriate measures to make sure that these drinks are not consumed. For these reasons, I believe that a health promotion program needs to be planned and implemented to addres ...

  • Ectasy - 1,400 words

  • Hate Crimes - 1,181 words
    Hate Crimes Homosexual people make up ten percent of the population; that means if you are sitting in a classroom of thirty, then more than likely three of those people are gay. However, this overwhelmingly large minority group continues to be one of the least protected by the government as well as most heavily targeted by discrimination and hate crimes. Regardless of the powerful shift in public opinion on homosexuality during the last twenty years and the outcry for more government intervention in the case of hate crimes and other such atrocities, the laws have remained invariable. A hate crime is an act of aggression against an individual's actual or perceived race, ethnicity, religions, ...
