    ... a spotty memory, where they may remember, for example, something that happened a year ago, but cannot remember the day before. In addition, they have an inflexibility of thought, where a person with the syndrome can only understand a concept expressed in one way. Once that concept has been learned that one way, it is hard for the individual to understand it in any other context. A difficulty in predicting outcomes is another disability shared by FAS victims. For example, a child with FAS might not be able to foresee what will happen when he knocks over a cup of juice. A child with FAS often tends to make the same mistake repeatedly. Another disturbing trait shared by FAS affected people ...

  • Fiber Optics - 1,648 words
    Fiber Optics Thesis: Some of the important features of the fiber optics that we are interested are discussed below. Now a days we are using copper wires as they are the most cost effective and reliable interconnect in parallel machines. However as machines grow more powerful, wire density becomes critical making fiber possible alternatives because of their small wire size. Fiber optics are used mainly to use effectively its high bandwidth. On a single fiber lots of information/data can be transmitted concurrently and in parallel. Over 1000 high bandwidth (100-200 Mb/s) independant channels or busses can be supported on a single optical fiber. Furthermore multiple buses can co-exist on a sing ...

  • Fires Of Indonesia: Pollution - 991 words
    Fires Of Indonesia: Pollution Fires of Indonesia What is the single most environmental issue that is plaguing the eastern half of the world? The raging fires in Indonesia and Asia. These fires are releasing more CO2 and other toxic chemicals in a few months than most countries do all year. The fires are also producing a thick smoky haze that is clouding the entire area. What is the exact cause of this problem? Scientists are quick to point out several causes, but one that is standing out is the defiant act of setting ablaze fields for the use of farmland. The Indonesian government has taken a stand against the fire, but has done nothing to actually stop the farmers from destroying the land. ...

  • Gene Therapy - 637 words
    Gene Therapy Many diseases seen today are the result of a defective gene in the DNA of the patient and can not be cured using the traditional methods such as antibiotics and antiviral medication. The victims are now looking to gene therapy as a potential cure for their problems. Bob Williamson introduces us the concept, procedures, and problems associated with gene therapy in his article, "Gene Therapy". Along with the appearance of the recombinant DNA technology, it becomes possible for human beings to isolate, study, and change gene in the laboratory. Gene Therapy is the process of replacing a defective gene inside a patients DNA with a working gene that will produce the correct gene produ ...

The corresponding colony on the original plate thus contains the bacteria carrying the required gene. The applications of genetic engineering are vast, probably the most well known is gene therapy in the medical world. It involves the introduction of a gene into somatic cells and enablement of its products to alleviate a disorder caused by the loss or malfunctioning of a vital gene product. Involving the latest DNA technology, it is the most rapidly advancing form of molecular medicine, which is concerned with the cause of disease at a molecular level. ...

These spoil disposal areas were carefully contoured and landscaped in a manner that precluded one of the most potentially serious environmental problems associated with the waterway construction. Construction of the waterway also involved the relocation or replacement of 8 railroad bridges and 14 highway bridges. The States of Alabama and Mississippi were responsible for building the highway bridges, which cost $155 million. Above is a railroad relocation showing a massive earth fill that had to be built to provide uninterrupted rail service and later was removed when the ...

  • History Of The Aircraft Propeller - 1,519 words
    History Of The Aircraft Propeller History of the Propeller The aircraft propeller looks like a simple mechanism to the uneducated individual. To the educated, an aircraft propeller represents the highest sophistication in aerodynamics, mechanical engineering and structural design. This report will touch on the history of the propeller, from early pioneers/experiments, advancement during/after the war, all the way up to current applications of the propeller. The creation of the propeller can be traced back to Leonardo da Vinci. Da Vincis helical screw helicopter is believed to be the ancestor of the air propeller and the helicopter rotor. The first idea of a propulsive airscrew, however, belo ...

    ... (1992) states the matrix system could be highly effective in a complex and rapidly changing environment. Davis & Lawrence (1977) add that the matrix style is applicable when there is a high need for information processing. However, there are certain criticisms that could be levelled against the matrix system. McKenna (2000) again cites Daft (1998) and Davis & Lawrence (1997), among others in pointing out some of the key problems associated with Matrix organizations. The most appropriate in this situation appears to be with regards to role conflict of subordinates. The firm has very much shifted its focus from technology to market-driven and there appears to be a danger of the marketing f ...

  • In His Steps Analysis - 1,146 words
    In His Steps Analysis The turn of the century was marked by a movement known as the Progressive Era, during which many groups sought to reshape the nation's government and society in response to the pressure of urbanization and industrialization. Progressives were mainly members of the Post-Civil War generation that made an attempt to master a world much different then that of their parents. With the rise of big business and industrialization came several problems associated with the economic boom. The rich were getting richer. The poor were getting poorer. The gap between the "haves" and the "have nots was widening. Working conditions were not regulated, and at the turn of the century, the ...

The reaction from the American college student population was one that led into great controversy and heated debates. When Nixon announced his decision on the following day, many people were upset, and thousands of people protested. The end result of one particular protest was bloody, and a perfect example of what terrible shape our country was in during that period of time (Guard Fired in Self Defense).

  • Legalization Of Marijuana - 1,060 words
    Legalization Of Marijuana How can something so good be so bad??? There is a large drug problem facing Canada today, and this problem extends to all citizens. Its not just the poor and the uneducated that are affected by this problem. The most largely used illegal drug in Canada is Marijuana, and thus is targeted as the drug for law enforcement to target the most, costing the taxpayers lots and lots of money.

  • Legalize Marijuana - 217 words
    Legalize Marijuana annon I, for one, believe that Marijuana should be legalized. I have several reasons for this, the main one is that it would almost completely eliminate the crime and other problems associated with the drug. We would need fewer police officers looking for pot, we could concentrate drug education in schools on the more grievously damaging drugs (heroin, cocaine, LSD). The only long term effects marijuana has on a person are the same as with cigarettes. No one would dare prohibit the sale and possession of those, and pot isn't treated with an array of chemicals. It's just picked, dried, and smoked. Marijuana has similar short term effects as those of beer, but more relaxing. ...

This option is not very popular for the obvious reason that the prospect of injection is intimidating to most people. The overall success of the injections is generally short lived with most symptoms returning within three to four days. Long term relief from epidural injections, for more than three months, is only gained in under five percent of the recipients(Traynellis, 1997). The persistent nature of lumbar disc injury is such that it affects every aspect of a persons life from tying one's sneakers to getting in and out of a car, to stand ...
