... ors leading outside (Alzheimers disease sufferers are known to wander off); clearing floors of clutter; and reducing the contents of closets in order to simplify choices (Alzheimer, 1992, p.17). Costs are typically paid for by the victim's family. Many of these, and other more expensive modifications are introduced in long-term care settings. They help in maintaining the safety and security of the victim as well as reducing their confusion. The patient's and the family's condition should be assessed every six months (Alzheimer, 1992, p.21). In response to constantly changing needs, the aspects of care must be constantly modified. Other issues that usually arise during the care of the pat ...

- Creativity: Beer Can Theory - 4,998 words
... how discrete memories become woven into a worldview. Although this account focuses on integration of the worldview through the emergence of deeper, more general concepts, the principles apply equally to integration of the psyche through the purification of intentions and emotions. A detailed account of the proposal can be found in [Gabora 1998], and elaborations in [Gabora 1999, 2000], but the basic line of reasoning goes as follows. Much as catalysis increases the number of different polymers, which in turn increases the frequency of catalysis, reminding events increase concept density by triggering abstraction - the formation of abstract concepts or categories such as 'tree' or 'big' ...

- Do We Really Love Our Animals - 1,263 words
... n part because they are immobile, yet suffer because of the inability to move...Chickens are cheap, cages are expensive"(Why Vegan? 2) Animals are usually locked up in buildings with no windows crowed with hundreds to tens of thousands of other animals. They are also subject to extreme weather conditions, such as extreme heat and extreme cold. Animals have been genetically mutated to become higher yielding products. These murders use methods like gene splicing, and selective breeding. There are also hormones administrated as well as unnatural feeding schedules. It is truly repugnant to think of the effects of genetic mutation on animals. I have seen cows with breasts unnaturally huge to ...

- Evolution - 1,034 words
Evolution Theory This short report will give you a short summary on evolution and how it my affect us, or even surroundings. Also, how it my affect our food chain and if one thing would die how the other would suffer because of that, for an example if you had snakes and birds and if snakes were to die birds population would drop. Why, because birds feed on snakes. Now a part of the food chain contains something called "niche" now you are asking what that is, so I guess that I will answer that question, it basically what the organism will do in the food chain. A food chain is how in the worlds animals, people, parasites, and insects get all of their food ,and what predators will eat them.. Pl ...

- Gene Therapy - 405 words
Gene Therapy Gene Therapy is the insertion of a gene or genes into cells in order to provide a new set of instructions to those cells. Gene insertion can be used to correct an inherited genetic defect which is causing disease, to counter or correct the effects of a genetic mutation, or even to program a cell for an entirely new function or property. Genes are composed of molecules of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA (see Nucleic Acids), and are usually located in the nucleus of cells. The instructions that direct the development of an organism are encoded within the genes. Some diseases such as cystic fibrosis are caused by an inherited genetic defect. Other diseases are caused by a miscoding o ...

- Genetic Engineering - 1,849 words
Genetic Engineering What's Genetic Engineering? Nowadays, scientists have learned a great deal about the chemical changes taking place inside living things. They have deciphered the code, DNA, by which animals and plants pass on their characteristics to their offspring. They have even leant how to alter that code to produce life forms with new characteristics. This new technology involving both chemical and biological science is known as genetic engineering. Through this new technology, we shall soon be able to provide much better treatments, and possibly even cures for certain serious diseases, especially those like inheriting diseases, which cannot presently be cured. Besides, we shall be ...

- Racisms - 1,366 words
Racisms Kwame Anthony Appiah addresses the issues of racialism, intrinsic racism, and extrensic racism in his article entitled RACISMS. However, after analyzing Appiahs views on racism and its different forms, his views on the theoretical validity of racialism and extrinsic racism are seriously doubted. Appiah defines racialism as the view that there are essentail characteristics that allow us to classify people into distinct races, each of which shares certain traits and tendencies. On this topic, Appiah thinks that this theory, or way of categorizing people is false. He thinks that it is merely an excuse for people to practice types of racism. Among the two most distinct types of racism ar ...

- The Worlds Natural Resources Are Being Consumed At An Alarming Rate As These Resources Diminish, People Will Be Seeking Alter - 1,119 words
... t pipe was accidentally blocked due to cleaning and repairs the blockage allowed no water to reach the reactor core to cool it down and the core ruptured and leaked radioactive particles into the atmosphere. The core itself came close to meltdown and if this had happened much of Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey would have been contaminated by the radioactive fallout. Although today's nuclear power plants are relatively safe the problem of accidents increases with every new plant that is built. With each new plant built new of problems occur since this is a relatively young technology with people who are being trained on the job. Radioactivity cannot be seen, felt, tasted or smelt. I ...
