Data should specify the date or time when a chemically related event or behavior occurred. The more specific we can be about when, where, and with whom a chemically related incident occurred, the more credible we will be. Also remember that the chemically dependent person was probably intoxicated when these incidents happened and was therefore not perceiving or sensing accurately. The more information we can provide them, the more we will help them recall these incidents. Data should specify when an incide ...

  • A Slaves Life - 1,645 words
    A Slave's Life Imagine, if you will, rising earlier than the sun, eating a mere "snack"- lacking essentially all nutritional value - and trekking miles to toil in the unforgiving climate of the southern states, and laboring until the sun once again slipped under the horizon. Clad only in the rags your master provided (perhaps years ago), you begin walking in the dark the miles to your "home." As described by the writers Jacob Stroyer and Josiah Henson, this "home" was actually a mere thatched roof, that you built with your own hands, held up by pathetic walls, over a dirt floor and you shared this tiny space with another family. Upon return to "home," once again you eat the meager rations yo ...

  • Acceptance Of Homosexual Marriage - 1,033 words
    ... es. If gay couples were allowed to marry, it would set a bad example for children, and could spell the downfall of one of the cornerstones of our society. After all, whats next? Legalizing polygamy? Marriage between brothers? (Hetter 28-31) Hetter displays one belief of a large group of individuals who confuse what is right, and fair for society as a whole, with what is based on her one-sided religious beliefs. It is very difficult for some people to accept a change in things that differ from their everyday life and the way they were brought up. If those individuals could look at same-sex marriage open-mindedly they could see that they have been withholding, a precious right that could s ...

  • Agustine And Love - 992 words
    Agustine And Love April 14, 2000 Seminar 021 How does Augustine define love? Augustine states continuously that he was not yet in love, but was in love with love. This statement doesnt make sense to me. I dont believe that someone can be in love with something, if he or she doesnt understand what love is. I was not yet in love, but I was in love with love, and from the very depth of my need hated myself for not more keenly feeling the need. (pg. 35) How can Augustine hate himself if he doesnt know what loves feel like? I think a lot of Augustines statements about love are interesting. Augustine has some very good points about love, but he contradicts himself also. Is Augustine saying he wasn ...

  • Communications Process - 926 words
    Communications Process The communication process is used in every kind of relationship. It could be in a friendship, an acquantance, a significant other, a family, and many more. I found out these processes can be harder than you think three years ago. My father got remarried and I was forced to become up close and personal with complete strangers, my stepfamily. The communication process language in my stepfamily describes the concepts and ideas of the transactional communication model and the social penetration theory. The transactional communication model is used daily in my household. Although, the messages are not always successfully sent nor received along the channels due to major amo ...

  • Consequentialism And Deontology - 1,351 words
    Consequentialism And Deontology The moral obligation to ones spouse is very important. If a person vows to love, honor and cherish until death do them part, then this before God and all who witness that to be true. If the actions of one or the other cause a"rift" in the relationship then this could be the beginning of the end of a marriage. From a consequential point of view, the person knew what he or she was doing and also knew there would be malice results from the actions if discovered by the spouse. I believe the wife in the River Thought Experiment saw it that way. From a Deontology point of view, the individual was doing what he or she did because their spouse did not meet the "moral ...

  • Delusional Disorder Treatments - 716 words
    Delusional Disorder Treatments This disorder is characterized by the presence of non-bizarre delusions, which have persisted for a least one-month. Non-bizarre delusions typically are beliefs of something occurring in a persons life, which is not out of the realm of possibility.

    ... re senile plaques (SP) and Neurofibrillary tangles (NFT). There are two types of SP, neuritic and diffuse, both plaques share antigenic determinants with the Beta amyloid 4 protein. Neuritic plaques can be distinguished by their abnormally thickened neurites ( i.e., axons or dendrites) arranged around a central core of amyloid (Mirra & Gearing, 1994). By contrast the diffuse plaques lack the thickened neurites and the amyloid core seen in the neuritic plaques (Mirra & Gearing, 1994). Plaques of both types are found in varying degrees in the neocortex, entorhinal cortex, hippocampus, and in the amygdala. SP also occur in the brains of healthy people. It is only when they exceed a certain ...

  • Ernest Hemingways Cat In The Rain - 1,106 words
    Ernest HemingwayS Cat In The Rain In today's society, people have the assumptions that we have evolved far beyond past cultural notions and marital stereotypes. The reality to this is that we are not so superior and tend to take the easy way out in relationships. This is reflected through our atrocious divorce rate. The American wife in Ernest Hemingway's "Cat in the Rain," although controlled by her husband, George, is an obvious victim of marital neglect. While vacationing in Italy, the romance capital of the world, George's use of control and carelessness cause the wife to focus on a stray cat for fulfillment. Although the couple is on a romantic vacation, George proceeds to neglect his w ...

    Gay Rights Homosexuals: Fight for Rights Gay rights is a touchy subject especially in the united states.

The people of this country pick on and torment people because they are different or not like them. Why do thay do thiswho knows. John Catlin M.

It is often thought that multiple personality disorder is a trick, a bizarre form of play-acting that is committed by manipulative, attention-seeking individuals. It is not.

Most know that there is something wrong with them; many fear that they are crazy, but few know that they have a disorder. What is Multipl ...

  • Multiple Personality Disorder - 1,869 words
    Multiple Personality Disorder Multiple Personality Disorder, renamed dissociative identity disorder, is the suggestion that one body may serve as a home to multiple individuals, each with their own distinct personality. (Grolier encyclopedia) This suggestion is accepted by psychiatrists world wide and is recognized as a serious mental illness. However, all of the personalities that are present in an individual are normal. They act as any other normal personality, because the multiple personalities have their own memories which dictate the personality of the individual or alter personality.(Dr. McQueen) There can be over one hundred personalities in a body, some not even human.

  • Romantic Opinions In The Work Of Percy Bysshe Shelley - 1,600 words
    Romantic Opinions in the Work of Percy Bysshe Shelley To think of something romantically is to think of it naively, in a positive light, away from the view of the majority. Percy Bysshe Shelley has many romantic themes in his plays. Educated at Eton College, he went on to the University of Oxford only to be expelled after one year after publishing an inappropriate collection of poems. He then worked on writing full-time, and moved to Italy shortly before his death in a boating accident off the shore of Leghorn. He wrote many pieces, and his writing contains numerous themes. Shelley experienced first-hand the French Revolution. This allowed him to ponder many different situations, and determi ...

  • Sex Who Needs It - 1,083 words
    Sex Who Needs It annon I’ve found the past couple of years to be an eye opener in the world of sexual experiences. I’m not necessarily referring to my own experiences, but those of society in general. There was a time when more smart-conscious decisions were made relating to sexual relationships. But times have changed. The pillars that hold up our individual sexual values have started to crumble. No longer can we create our own standards without feeling ostracized by the society that forms the standards for us. With influences coming from the media, infatuated hormones and opinionated peers, teenagers today have turned the act of love making into a whimsical joyride. The differenc ...

Now within the last fifteen to twenty years. People have accepted homosexuals even more due to the understanding and severity of the AIDS virus. When the AIDS virus was discovered in 1981, people labeled it as Gay Mans Dise ...
