- Acl Injuries In Athletes - 1,654 words
Acl Injuries In Athletes ACL Injuries in Athletes The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) attaches the femur, which is the thighbone, and the tibia, which is the shin, together (northstar). A torn ACL is one of the most excruciating experiences in an athletes life. It is the first thing that comes to mind when they hurt their knee on the field; for many it is their greatest fear. A torn ACL can sometimes mean the end of an athletes career. It can mean losing the chance to get that scholarship for young athletes, and it can also mean the end of those million dollar paychecks for those who have gone professional. A torn ACL can result in numerous surgeries, months of vigorous exercise and rehabil ...

- Assisted Suicide - 596 words
Assisted Suicide I feel that assisted suicide is a practice that should not only be legally acceptable, but socially acceptable as well. No one should be forced to live a life of pain and suffering. After all, aren't we all guaranteed the rights of life, liberty, and happiness? If happiness means freedom from pain and suffering, then assisted suicide should be legalized. A person willing to help sick people end their suffering should be praised rather than condemned. Some terminally ill patients are forced to face imaginable pain and suffering on a day-to-day basis. This intolerable pain causes these people to experience an unbearably poor quality of life. Yet, if you help these patients end ...

- Breast Implants - 767 words
Breast Implants Theresa Ann Vasquez Mr. P. Landino English 106 22. January 2001 Breast Implants Why would a woman get breast implants? Is it needed or wanted? In some might say that they are needed for women who need reconstructive surgery due to breast cancer. Others might say that they want the implants to make them feel better or look better, which comes from low self-esteem. Whatever your reasons are, obviously we all agree that the decision is of a very personal nature. A decision that poses a serious threat because of the possible risks involved. There are many illness and disorders you can experience. Breast Implants have been around since the 1960s. Dow Corning was a well-known manuf ...

- Breast Reconstruction - 412 words
Breast Reconstruction Post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is not a simple procedure. Reconstruction of a breast is done when the natural breast has to be removed due to cancer or other diseases. Breast removal is referred to as mastectomy. The best candidates are women whose cancer has been eliminated by breast removal. Women with other health conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure or smoking, may be advised to wait. Surgeons are now able to create a breast that can come close to looking like a natural breast. Reconstruction can be done immediately following mastectomy. The patient will wake up with a breast mound already in place. So the woman does not have to go through the trau ...

- Cloning Technology - 1,787 words
Cloning Technology Technology is changing the world as we know it. Not all of these advances in technology are viewed as positive. One of the breakthroughs that has received mixed responses is the issue of cloning. There has been much debate on this topic, and the debate is certain to rage on for many years to come. You may be asking yourself: What is cloning? How can I benefit from cloning? Is cloning legal? Why should we clone human beings? What is the world community doing to control cloning? I hope to answer these and other questions throughout the course of this paper. What is cloning? According to the Human Cloning Foundation (HCF1998), cloning is a scientific process in which a strand ...

- Color - 389 words
Color What is Color? You are wondering what it is to be a color? Are you a color if you paint yourself white? Is color just an exterior or is it an interior as well? Is the color you are on the outside, the color you are on the inside? Think about it this way, many people in our culture pretend to be something that they are not, just another white man, or just another black man. The fact of life is that you are what you are, and that you cannot, excluding major reconstructive surgery change what you look like. So basically pull out your box of Crayolas and color yourself whatever color you want to be, because everybody is different in their own way. As Websters dictionary explains, color is ...

- Cosmetic Surgery - 1,893 words
Cosmetic Surgery Nobody knows about cosmetic surgery better than Edward Mondeck and his two children, ages 9 and 11. Rosemarie Mondeck, 39, decided to have a bit of tummy fat removed after having two kids. She let the doctors use a new procedure called tumescent liposuction. The patients are primed prior to surgery by injecting large amounts of diluted local anesthetic and epinephrine, drugs that shrink capillaries. They reduce bleeding and make it easier to suck fat out according to doctors. After the drugs were injected, Rosemarie went into cardiac arrest and died. "All she had was a fatty area above her bellybutton," states Edward. Look at what can happen. This goes to show you that cosme ...

- Creativity: Beer Can Theory - 4,904 words
Creativity: Beer Can Theory LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE KEY CONCEPTS Attribute listing The decision maker isolates the major characteristics of traditional alternatives. Each major attribute of the alternative is then considered in turn and is changed in every conceivable way. No ideas are rejected, no matter how ridiculous they may seem. Once this extensive list is completed the constraints of the problem are imposed in order to eliminate all but the viable alternatives. Creativity The ability to combine ideas in a unique way or to make unusual associations between ideas. Entrepreneurship The process of initiating a business venture, organizing the necessary resources, and assuming the associat ...

... 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' ...

- Many People Suffer From Unattractive Fat Build Up In Certain Areas - 1,251 words
Many people suffer from unattractive fat build up in certain areas of their bodies. Women tend to accumulate fat around the hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. Men have problems with love handles and their abdomen. Either might have problems with their neck, chin, legs, arms, or breasts. These stubborn deposits remain even after diet and exercise. At best, many people would have to become excessively thin in other areas prior to slimming these problem spots. But now there is away to help people like this, by decreasing their size to one that fits them more appropriately, but only through a surgery called liposuction. Liposuction is also referred to as suction assisted lipectomy, lipo-sculpt ...

- Silicon - 1,220 words
Silicon Silicon is an essential element in humans, found in significant concentrations in hair, bone, epidermis and dental enamel. It is also the second most abundant element on the earths crust, constituting about 28% by weight.(cite) Many foods and beverages, including certain vegetables, grains, rice, and beer have been shown to contain significant amounts of silicon. Silicone is a synthetic form of silicon and includes 40% silicon by weight. The silicones are synthetic polymers and are not therefore found naturally. They have a linear, repeating silicon-oxygen backbone akin to silica. However, organic groups attached directly to the silicon atoms by carbon-silicon bonds prevent formation ...

- Skin Cancer - 1,311 words
Skin Cancer Every hour one American is killed by skin cancer and every thirty seconds one American gets skin cancer. Cancer is a deadly disease that alters the DNA of a skin cell and causes it to reproduce at a rapid pace. This overproduction of cells can be harmful and in many cases deadly. Out of these cancers the most common is Basal cell carcinoma. Many steps have been made in the treatment of Basal Cell Carcinoma, some have been very successful and some not. The cells that have the altered DNA are called malignant or cancerous cells. These cells are found in the outer layers of the skin. The skin's main job is to protect the body from infections and to insulate the body to keep it at th ...

- The Benefits Of Human Cloning - 1,044 words
The benefits of human cloning There are many ways in which in which human cloning is expected to benefit mankind. Below is a list of ways that it is expected to help people. This list is far from complete. Human cloning technology could be used to reverse heart attacks. Scientists believe that they may be able to treat heart attack victims by cloning their healthy heart cells and injecting them into the areas of the heart that have been damaged. Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States and several other industrialized countries. There has been a breakthrough with human stem cells. Embryonic stem cells can be grown to produce organs or tissues to repair or replace damaged o ...

- The Cloning War: Moral Or Immoral - 1,056 words
The Cloning War: Moral Or Immoral? The Cloning War: Moral or Immoral? Outside the lab where the cloning had actually taken place, most of us thought it could never happen. Oh we would say that perhaps at some point in the distant future, cloning might become feasible through the use of sophisticated biotechnologies far beyond those available to us now. But what we really believed, deep in our hearts, was that this was one biological feat we could never master. -Dr. Lee M. Silver, 1997 With every revolution, there must be conflict. When the great thinkers of the past decided the earth was round, or that the planets revolved around the sun, their revolution caused excommunication. When America ...

- Torture, Not Culture Female Genital Mutilation - 1,181 words
Torture, Not Culture - Female Genital Mutilation annon (AN INSIGHT INTO FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION) Female circumcision, better known as Female Genital Mutilation, is an ugly monster finally rearing its head from out of the depths of time. It can attack a girl at any age, with a little prompting from her society, and the aid of an unsuspecting human wielding the knife. Usually, it is performed from a few days after birth to puberty, but in some regions, the torture can be put off until just before marriage or the seventh month of pregnancy (Samad, 52). Women that have gone beyond the primary level of education are much less likely to fall victim to the tradition ('Men's...', 34). The average ...
