  • Abortion - 1,868 words
    Abortion "You wake up in the morning and find yourself back to back in bed with an unconscious violinist. A famous unconscious violinist. He has been found to have a fatal kidney ailment, and the Society of Music Lovers have canvassed all the available medical records and found that you alone have the right blood type to help. They have therefore kidnapped you, and last night the violinist's circulatory system was plugged into yours, so that your kidneys can be used to extract poisons from his blood as well as your own. The director of the hospital now tells you, 'Look, we're sorry the Society of Music Lovers did this to you-we would never have permitted it if we had known. But still, they d ...

  • Aquaculture - 1,393 words
    Aquaculture Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms in fresh, or salt water. A wide variety of aquatic organisms are produced through aquaculture, including fish, crustaceans, mollusks, algae, and aquatic plants. Unlike capture fisheries, aquaculture requires deliberate human intervention in the organisms' productivity and results in yields that exceed those from the natural environment alone. Stocking water with (juvenile organisms), fertilizing the water, feeding the organisms, and maintaining water quality are common examples of such intervention. Most aquacultural crops are destined for human consumption. However, aquaculture also produces bait fishes, ornamental or aquarium fish ...

  • Big Oil And Bus Ethics - 1,775 words
    Big Oil And Bus Ethics Big Oil in the Arctic It can be argued (convincingly) that human's usage of fossil fuels is responsible for a large part of the world's pollution problems. The area that I will discuss is the interaction that the big oil companies have had with the environment surrounding their businesses in Alaska. I will not tackle the issue of whether it is right or wrong to extract or use fossil fuels. Instead, I will ignore the larger issue and concentrate on specific issues concerning the Arctic Slope activities of oil companies in Alaska. Because the North Slope oil fields are on American soil, the regulation of the industrial activities is far more stringent than other areas in ...

  • Brain Lateralization - 287 words
    Brain Lateralization Language comes naturally to human and is one of the attributes that distinguish us from animals. It is an innate trait, which enables a child to master a language at an early age. Researches showed that the critical age and the cognitive specialization of the brain might have played a part in this. However language needs nurturing in a way of proper exposure to ensure its smooth progress. Whatever it is, the knowledge of the factors above does register some significance to me personally. I am now planning to expose my children to more than one language before they reach the schooling age. Probably Malay and English, which of course will involve my husband and I conversin ...

  • Claude And The Classical Dream - 492 words
    Claude And The Classical Dream In Kathleen Nicholson's book, Turner's Classical Landscapes, is an interpretation of Turner's concepts and ability of landscape painting in contrast to Claude. In particular, chapter six, Nicholson discusses Turner's artistic career and how it models Claudean classical landscape. Nicholson conveys her opinion on how Turner re-created Claude's a realm to maintain a balance between homage and revision, between landscape as a tradition and landscape as a modern form of expression. Kathleen Nicholson, in this chapter, takes the reader through many aspects of Turner's re-creation of Claude's classical landscape into his own modern form. Turner understood Claude's qu ...

  • College Essay - 207 words
    College Essay There's a lot of talking these days about what it will mean to live, work and prosper in the 21st century. In fact this century is being hailed as a kind of renaissance. Not the rebirth of classic art and culture, as in the 15th century, but a rebirth of what we understand to be knowledge, how to acquire it and how to use it productively. Chicago, one of the US major corporate industrial headquarters, not only serves as the natural environment for scientific engineering study, but also influences a major sector of Dow Jones Industrial Index. As a young multi-cultured child, I always had a dream that one day I'll suceed in international bio-medical business administration. To ac ...

When they failed to behave properly, they must be scolded and warned not to act like that again. At the age of six, they were taught words for numbers and directions. Boys were learning how to write and girls were taught simple women's work. Both boys and girls were both taught to recite the Analects. By the time they were ten they knew how to recite other important books. At ten, boys went away for school and the girls stayed home.

  • Diversity In Outdoor Adventure Recreation - 364 words
    Diversity In Outdoor Adventure Recreation Diversity in Outdoor Adventure Programs: A Summary and Critique Jamie Grey Adventure Recreation 2033 Thayer Raines April 9, 2001 People with disabilities in the past have commonly been limited to experiencing outdoor programs that were segregated to only include the disabled. According to Sugerman (1996), this has historically been the only solution for overcoming environmental barriers such as transportation, architecture, economics, and public attitudes (p. 44). Diversity within an adventure program can present new challenges for the participants as well as opportunities for growth. Sugerman displays how most people don't want to participate in pro ...

The Druids were very appreciated and very influential and powerful. They were the teachers, doctors, and lawyers of Celtic society. But of these two orders, one is that of the Druids, the other that of the knights. The former are engaged in things sacred, conduct the public and the private sacrifices, and interpret all matters of religion. To these a large number of the young men resort for the purpose of instruction, and they [the Druids] are in great honour among them. For they determine respecting almost all controversies, public and private; and i ...

  • Effects Of Genetic Engineering On Agriculture - 1,696 words
    Effects Of Genetic Engineering On Agriculture The Effects of Genetic Engineering on Agriculture Agribiotechnology is the study of making altered agricultural products. Agribusiness is trying to alter the genes of already existing products to try to enhance the biocompetitiveness and adaptability of crops by enhancing plant resistance to drought, salinity, disease, pests and herbicides. They are going to try to enhance their growth, productivity, nutrient value, and chemical composition. The old way of doing this was through selective breeding, special fertilizer, and hormones. This seems now somewhat outdated with todays technology. Genetic engineering comes with many downfalls. Increased pr ...

  • Genetic Engineering In Food Production - 1,689 words
    Genetic Engineering In Food Production Genetic Engineering in Food Production: Is it Safe, Wise, and Moral? Over the past couple of decades much debate has been going on about the use of advanced technology in the field of biology. Ever since the first gene was cloned in 1973, genetic engineers have been pursuing at break-neck speed the unlimited possibilities promised by biotechnology (Davidson 1993). Their excitement, which has generated billions of investment dollars for the industry, is understandable. Bioengineering allows scientists to identify specific gene sequences responsible for particular characteristics and then to transfer the genes -- and the specific trait -- into entirely di ...

  • Global Warming - 1,345 words
    Global Warming The humanity is currently facing one its biggest problem ever. Indeed, the Earth is warming and consequences might be devastating for the future generations. There is a general agreement among scientists that Earth's climate is being affected by industrial society. Industry affects global climate by releasing greenhouse gases (GHGs). The most significant GHG is carbon dioxide (CO2). While some GHGs occur naturally, others are released in the atmosphere by certain human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation activities and some agricultural practices. These activities affect climate by increasing the so-called 'greenhouse effect'. GHGs concentrate in the ...

  • Globalization And Sustainability - 1,589 words
    Globalization And Sustainability The world was once vast and unknown. Communication was once dreaded as messages would take exceeded amounts of time from one point of destination to the next. Countries would not know of each others affairs for months because the world was large beyond anyones imagination. But as soon as technology reared its head the world rapidly became smaller. It modified everything within its grasp. Communication that once took months could now take seconds. Travelling abroad that would have taken years now took hours. Every institution that fell into this form of globalisation changed. It is obvious to see that governments have also been effected by globalisation in suc ...

The problem lies within the amount of enforcement that is dedicated on ensuring that the policies are practised to the full extent. Not every country has the same view when enforcement of policy is the issue. Some nations are better off than others so it is easier for them to proceed with strict enforcement but Third World countries, in order to compete in the world market, are more lenient because of the need to better establish a prosperous economy. This is a main concern among many because the problem is never fully solved but simply reallocated. This is when international policy b ...

  • How Detrimental Clearcut Logging And Other Options - 1,138 words
    How Detrimental Clear-Cut Logging And Other Options Have you ever awakened on a beautiful sunny morning in the Southwest planning on going for a hike in the Cascade Mountains, but when you arrive at your destination there are only stumps? This is the result of clear-cut logging. The negative aspects of logging, by far, outweigh the benefits. Clear-cut logging is the practice of harvesting all the trees in a specifically marked area. Another logging method is a selective cut which is the harvesting of some trees to open the canopy so the remaining trees can grow faster. Last but not least, is the practice of salvage logging. This results in the harvesting of dead or dying trees, either in a s ...
