  • Autonomy Vs Paternalism - 976 words
    Autonomy Vs. Paternalism Focus: Discuss the advantages and disadvantages on autonomy and paternalism. Decision-making would be so much easier if we all maintained our autonomy in making the decision, however, because our decisions do not always abide by autonomistic values paternalistic intervention must occur. The purpose of autonomy is to allow us to choose to do things that affect only ourselves and does not negatively affect those around us. Unfortunately, many choices do, whether we know it or not, involve those in our environment.

  • Miss Brill By Mansfield - 382 words
    Miss Brill By Mansfield Katherine Mansfields short story "Miss Brill" outlines an old womans lack of understanding for a world that she observes so intimately. The story is told from the point of view of an aging insignificant character, who on this particular Sunday is cruelly forced to see herself in a different light. This essay will study Miss Brills forced development, and the conflict(s) she must face in this story. The story is so completely the language Miss Brill uses to describe her world, that it is left difficult to discuss. In fact, the inclination is to just quote the brilliantly written sentences. The protagonist on the other hand, Miss Brill herself, is not brilliant at all. ...

    ... longer you are not smoking, the less of a chance you will have to get cancer or other health problems from tobacco products (American Thoracic Society 23). How can the benefits of smoking out weight the risks involved, especially when it involves innocent children? These children are the future of the world and if they smoke, there life expectancy will diminish greatly with every cigarette they smoke. If the children die, then we, the human race, have no future. Richard DeGrandpre contends that nicotine is not an addictive drug in tobacco products (39). The nicotine in tobacco has met the criteria for it to be a highly addictive and toxic drug to people who use it (Douglas 34). The youth ...

    The New Fraternity Culture The New Fraternity Culture After drinking from a keg of beer stashed in the basement of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house at the University of Michigan last December, a group of pledges stripped to their boxer shorts and lined up, ready to endure their next torturous test of brotherhood.

In addition to causing respiratory problems, ETS is responsible for 3,000 to 5,000 lung cancer deaths a year in non-smokers, as well as 35,000 to 40,000 deaths from heart disease. It is easy to see why tobacco smoke is so deadly. It contains more than 4,000 chemicals and at least 45 of its ingredients are known or suspected to be cancer causing. But what is truly alarming is that secondhand smoke contains greater concentrations of certain carcinogens than primary smoke. It also contains greater amounts of nicotine and tar, both strong and addictive toxins.
