  • Assisted Suicide - 1,706 words
    Assisted Suicide Assisted suicide (or Euthanasia) is a topic undergoing serious debate. There exist two obvious and definite opinions regarding this controversy. The anti-euthanasia faction consist of:  Conservative religious groups. They are often the same organizations that oppose access to abortion.  Medical associations whose members are dedicated to saving and extending life, and feel uncomfortable helping people end their lives.  Groups concerned with disabilities, which fear that euthanasia is the first step towards a society that will kill disabled people against their will. These groups bring both a religious and professional ethics perspective to the opinion ...

    ... e in favor of cooperation. In Atlanta, Georgia in 1883 Washington said In all things that are purely social we can be separate as the fingers, yet as the hand in all things essential to mutual progress. This would become known as the Atlanta Compromise and denounced Washington's emphasis of vocational over intellectual development. In 1895 Washington was invited to speak at The Cotton States Convention in Atlanta to help represent the south a desirable location for future financial investment. They wanted him to create this picture with the image of racial harmony. Washington saw this as a chance comment on racial relations as well as to advance the status of his people. Washington says ...

  • Crop Circles - 506 words
    Crop Circles Crop Circles have been found throughout the whole country. They are one of the most intriguing things that I have read and researched. There have also been many shows that I have watched that have been very interesting. The first recent evidence of a crop circle was in 1966 in Tully England. The circles themselves ranged from a few inches in diameter to a few feet. There is also evidence of a crop circle in Hertfordshire, England in 1678. There have been many theories as to why these peculiar circular shapes have appeared in peoples crops. These theories include UFO's, energy fields, and also plasma vortexes(sine 1). There is no evidence as to how these patterns are formed. Ther ...

  • Double Standard Of Masculinity In Gender Role Socialization - 1,206 words
    ... are seen by the student?body of the school. Pep rallies are thrown to support the 'athletes', the 'stars' of the school. Girls swoon over the masculine 'hunks'. As young boys move into adulthood they are told to "be men" when confronted with a formidable challenge or when they face some sort of agony. The implication in this phrase is that men should be immune to pain and not show any emotion. To show emotion would be a sign of weakness and society would view them as abnormal or inferior (Pollack 1995). I have covered the socialization process showing how physical prowess is objectified and legitimated in males. This process, however, does not end in high school. As men move into their ...

  • How Julius Caesar Changed Rome - 963 words
    How Julius Caesar Changed Rome the ill P Gaius Julius Caesar helped establish the vast Roman Empire. Caesar's triumph in a civil war in the 40s BC made him the absolute ruler of Rome. Caesar was neither good nor bad, rather, he was a force of change. His folly was ambition, for when he took power the way to advance changed so drastically that the other Romans ambitions were thwarted, which lead to political jealousies among his opponents and his assassination. Caesar's rise to power obliterated the traditional way of attaining high office in Rome. When Caesar 'became' the Republic, he inadvertently created new needs: a need to be among Caesar's circle of friends, a need to feel important in ...

The senate delivered a crushing blow in the fall. The senate voted and ordered Caesar and Pompeius to give up control of their armies and provinces. Caesar's followers tried to veto it, but the hostile consul ordered Pompeius to defend the Republic with two Legions at Capua and the authority to raise more. Caesar thereupon gathered his own armies and went south. Both commanders were still on speaking terms and Caesar made another proposal; he would relinquish control of all but two of his legions and The province of Cisalpine Gaul ...

  • Physician Assisted Suicide - 1,174 words
    ... ndorsed the principle of the double effect, the Court did not directly apply the principle to the practice of writing drug prescriptions. The logic of the opinion supports the conclusion that physicians can continue to write prescriptions for medically indicated drugs even with the knowledge that the patients might use the drugs to commit suicide, as long as the physicians intent is to prolong the patients life and prevent suffering. The dismissal of physicians ability to use their own discretion on determining who is and who is not a candidate for euthanasia has maintained a legal loophole for physicians. The theory that is the framework for terminal sedation is that it is appropriate f ...

  • Riots Racism And Hysteria - 1,621 words
    Riots Racism And Hysteria The difference between race riots from 1917 to 1919 As a passageway in to the decade that would be known as the The Roaring Twenties , the years between 1917 and 1922 was one an minor doorways in time, known not so much for what occurred as what would come. Stuck between one decade battered by war, deprivation and another decade consumed with material and illusions of greatness, the United States was a country in the midst of monumental change. Amid the societal and economic chances, the arts and sciences flourished, ushering in jazz and giving way to some century's most influential works of literature. However, a review of newspaper headlines at the time reveals a ...

  • Teenage Sex - 1,377 words
    Teenage Sex Teenagers in the United States are experimenting with sexual activities more and more today than ever before. According to Charles Krauthammer, "Sex oozes from every pore of the culture and there's not a kid in the world who can avoid it." (Meier, 1994, p. 7). Teenagers are surrounded by some sort of sexual connotations all the time. Whether it is television, radio, school, or even the Internet, teenagers are hearing the affects of sex on our society. The price that teenagers pay for being sexually active greatly outweighs any advantages. The period of puberty occurs somewhere between the ages of 10 and 14 for most but can vary for different people. Heredity, health problems, and ...

    ... laws as of August of 1998 (Robinson, 1999). Illinois is among those 23. In some states, the legal age to have an abortion with no authorization is 17. That is too young to be deciding the life (or death) of an innocent human being. Another major concern for teenagers having sex is that some people feel that the teenager should have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies. They, as people of the United States, are loyal abiders of the Constitution as well as adults. The Constitution states that we have the freedoms of speech, religion, the press and assembly. Freedom of choice is in there, too. Teenagers might listen to the advice of adults and peers, but they have to be able ...

  • The Civil Rights Movement Black Panther Party - 1,336 words
    The Civil Rights Movement/ Black Panther Party Most of us, being United States citizens, would like to believe that everyone in this country is living in conditions of utmost freedom and equality. Although according to the constitution this is true, anyone who has ever been the victim of oppression knows not to take equality for granted. Our society has slowly grown to accept the different types of people that live in our country; it is now a lot less common to see peoples rights such as freedom and equality being abused. However, the influences of the past, when the living conditions were far less then equal for many groups of people, can still be witnessed today. A fine example of this cou ...

It was easier to be noticed as an influential group and viewed as a possible threat when a large amount of organized individuals were pulled together to make noise and work towards change. We have drawn a line of demarcation and we will no longer tolerate fascism, aggression, brutality, and murder of any kind (Newton 21). The Black Panther Party in pursuing their goals also chose to be a Marxist-Leninist party; they chose to use both theory and practice (Meier 37). This approach had not yet been pirsued within the Civil Rights struggle and succeeded in gaining attention. The Blacks worked towards what were considered real goals: survi ...

  • The Right To Die - 1,110 words
    The Right to Die Modern medical technology has made it possible to extend the lives of many far beyond when they would have died in the past. Death, in modern times, often ensures a long and painful fall where one loses control both physically and emotionally. Some individuals embrace the time that modern technology buys them; while others find the loss of control overwhelming and frightening. They want their loved ones to remember them as they were not as they have become. Some even elect death to avoid burdens of lingering on. They also seek assistance in doing so from medicine. The demands for assisted suicide and euthanasia are increasing (Kass 17). These issues raise many questions, leg ...
