- Apoptosis And Aging - 1,110 words
Apoptosis And Aging When we gain control of the gene responsible for the phenomenon of apoptosis, we will be in control of aging. We are finding more evidence every day, indicating genetic links to all sorts of factors in the human being. We are just now beginning to scratch the surface of our own genetics. A landmark discover has just been unveiled: In February , the two groups charting the human genome published their results - the entire 3 billion base pair sequence. The only definitive conclusion so far: Humans are far more complicated than we thought. ... Eric Lander, director of the Whitehead Center for Genome Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts ... adds: "within a decade, we wi ...

- Conceptions Of Divorce - 1,194 words
Conceptions Of Divorce Conceptions of Divorce Is marriage no more than the result of voluntary agreements between two private individuals? Is the lack of detail concerning marriage arrangements causing all the divorce debates? Does divorce cause problems or solve them? Why is marriage such a religious experience and divorce such a legal experience? Why do marriages take place under the eyes of God while divorces take place under the eyes of the law? I believe that it was because of my parents' divorce that I have chosen to tackle such a controversial topic. In many ways, I am in search of my own opinion. My parents divorced through the no-fault system. My dad decided it was time to move on t ...

... inues her argument by following with, Prevention is the best solution to any problem. While an educational program can't prevent all divorce, it does lay the groundwork for stronger unions. Families educated about problem-solving skills have a better chance for successful relationships. Ager has a different view. She says, Human relationships are fragile and prone to disease. Not all marriages deserve to be saved, and I'd argue that divorce has redeemed more human spirits than it has doomed. She then goes on to ask: ....what about encouraging women to become financially self-sufficient before they become mothers? What about keeping better track of dead-beat dads? What about government-fi ...

- Domestication Of The Dog - 1,036 words
Domestication Of The Dog Todays dogs serve as a number of different tools. We train dogs to see for the blind, we train them to sniff for drugs, we train them to save peoples lives, and we train them to be our faithful companions. There is no doubt that the dog has a wide variety of skills and jobs. We selectively breed the dog to gain the certain attributes we are seeking, and we know which dogs will perform the best at what we want them to do. The question is how long ago, and why did the dog become our aids, tools, and companions? Answering this question means dealing with the four fields of Anthropology: Ethnologically, Archaeologically, Physically, and Linguistically. The most obvious w ...

English 1A 11/24/99 Submarines: The Underwater War The submarine is one of the greatest naval inventions in the history of war. This innovation allows men to dive to certain depths in the open seas at will. Submarines were equipped with weapons and communication devices. The submarine could stay at sea for months at a time and only required a few men to operate. They were small, quick, and hard to locate by larger ships. The submarine was thought to be the perfect naval vessel. The concept of the submarine dates back to Archimedes, the ancient mathematician, who "dreamed of building war vessels that could submerge at will and operate under the sea, so that they might sink the enemy without f ...

- Hamlet Prince - 1,470 words
Hamlet Prince William Shakespeare created Prince Hamlet of Denmark to be the epitome of the moral man in the play Hamlet. This flawless morality can be envisioned to act both jointly and independently as a perfection and imperfection of the Princes character. This dually unblemished and tainted trait of Hamlets is revealed to the reader through the Princes concept of time. Contrary to the beliefs of many critics, procrastination is not an attribute of Hamlets character; but the time in which it takes Hamlet to act should be more accurately referred to as a necessary delay. There are numerous reasons to explain Hamlets use of time, the three most important of which are his intelligent, analyt ...

- Polytheism: God Is Dead By Nietzsche - 1,385 words
... edom and self-government obviated the need for the traditional supreme ruler God. Today, a new set of ideas that may influence concepts of God are entering popular consciousness. Two major concepts to imbue modern thinking come from science: the ideas of evolution in biology and of relativity in physics. We can call these the Darwinian and Einsteinian insights, although they extend well beyond the theories of Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein. A fundamental idea behind evolution is that all things are constantly changing, that nothing stays the same. For some, this idea sparks the need to reaffirm an image of God who is unchanging and eternal. But this would make God an exception to the ...

- Scientific Though Forming - 1,657 words
Scientific Though Forming The arguments about these rival ontological and epistemological views cannot be safely left or judged without first looking more closely at the complex relationship between the general analytical interests of philosophers and the more specific intellectual concerns of working scientists themselves. For the degree to which each view about the reality of scientific entities and facts can carry conviction depends substantially on what branches of science are at issue. As the focus of philosophical attention has shifted historically from one scientific terrain to another, so, too, have the relative degrees of plausibility of these rival positions varied. The formal stru ...

- Seneca Village - 1,111 words
Seneca Village When people think of Central Park, the thought of African-Americans once owning the land is inconceivable. Yet, this was the case 150 years ago when there once thrived a place called Seneca Village. The land known as Seneca Village was originally farmland owned by John and Elizabeth Whitehead. Andrew Williams, an African-American male, bought three lots of land from the Whiteheads in 1825. In addition, the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church purchased six lots of land, which began the birth of the community. The Whiteheads eventually sold off their land between 82nd to 86th Streets. The majority of the buyers were African Americans. This became the first community for prop ...

Sex Education Kali Thompson Audience Analysis: I am writing to the seven chairmen of the Manatee County School Board. They are a made up of a group of five men and two women. They are most likely all parents who have a common concern on the material being taught on the issue of Sex Education in schools. Fellow parents vote on them to insure that they make the correct decisions on what their kids are learning in school. They are all from some form of the Christian religion. They are from ages 30 and older. They represent all races. They all have a college degree and the majority of them have doctorate degree in education. They are mainly from the upper economic levels in society. The chairmen ...

... ation proved disastrous for the population at large. By 1992, "almost 4.5 million people, more than half the total number in the country, were threatened with starvation, severe malnutrition and related diseases" (UNDPI 1997). According to Mingst and Karns, "Widespread famine and chaos accompanied the fighting, forcing hundreds of thousands of civilians to the brink of starvation. Control of food was a vital political resource for the Somali warlords and a currency to pay the mercenary gangs who formed their militias" (92). At this time, "most government, NGO, and U.N. humanitarian Mulligan 10 organizations evacuated staff and suspended programs" (Weiss 78). A handful of organizations, h ...

... supervision, and affection tend to be missing in the home itself (Satterthwaite 180). If probation officers would not be able to communicate to others about the juvenile, the officer would have no sources of information and would be left without an idea as to how to approach a goal for the child. If punishment were to be harsher and juveniles were to be treated and sentenced as adults, taxpayers' expenses would increase. Longer sentences for juveniles cost taxpayers more but do not necessarily give better results, while prevention programs work more efficiently than imprisonment and cost much less. To keep a teenager locked up for a year cost more than $30,000. According to Mike Males, t ...

- The Case Against Capital Punishment - 1,465 words
The Case Against Capital Punishment John H. Whitehead Professor Roth Whitehead 1 A Moratorium on The Death Penalty Should Be Enacted In Illinois Due to the recent releases of newly exonerated Death Row inmates, individuals and organizations are calling for a moratorium- a cooling off period for state executions. The cases of just a few inmates makes it apparent that this would be a necessary step to save innocent lives. After 17 years in prison, Illinois Death Row inmate Anthony Porter was released from jail after a judge threw out his murder conviction following the introduction of new evidence. This reversal of fortune came just two days before Porter was to be executed. As reported in USA ...

... n of the genetic material in blood typing procedures could yield completely erroneous results. This logically implicates the possibility that individuals may have been erroneously convicted based upon this form of evidence. In cases where new DNA forensic was tested, 26% of primary suspects in similar cases Whitehead 7 were exonerated. This has led some to conclude that a similar percentage of inmates many have been wrongly convicted prior to the advent of forensic DNA typing. DNA testing, though a conduit for exoneration in these cases has also been challenged and the courts in at least one case have been refused to admit analyzed laboratory results because the lab failed to reveal its ...

- The Prevalent Issues Of Surrogate Parenting - 1,768 words
The Prevalent Issues Of Surrogate Parenting The Prevalent Issues of Surrogate Parenting Surrogate parenting refers to an arrangement between a married couple who is unable to have a child because of the wife's infertility and a fertile woman who agrees to conceive the husband's child through artificial insemination, carry it to term, then surrender all parental rights in the child. Often, the surrogate mother receives compensation for her services. The final step in the process is typically the father's acknowledgment of paternity and adoption, with his wife, of the child. Through surrogate motherhood, a couple desiring a child need not wait an indefinite number of years for an adoptable bab ...

- The Voice Of The Common Soldier: - 1,632 words
The Voice Of The Common Soldier: THE VOICE OF THE COMMON SOLDIER: KIPLING AND SOLDIER'S POETRY Kent Harrison 8 May 00 In contemporary times, much criticism has been placed upon Rudyard Kipling for his support of British Imperialism; George Orwell went so far as to call him the prophet of British Imperialism during its expansionist phase. To be sure, a considerable portion of Kipling's works were written in celebration and support of Imperial expansion, but it is short-sighted to simply label him as an Imperial propagandist or apologist. Two of his most oft-condemned poems, Recessional and The White Man's Burden, actually were used by both sides of the colonial issue at the time.1 A reading o ...

... esus (Mk. 14:3-9). She was displaying love in the ecstatic dimension. Some present were thinking ethically. They complained that this perfume could have been sold and the proceeds given to the poor. On ethical grounds they were right. What the woman did was indefensible as a moral act. It was irrational and superethical. This deed flowed spontaneously from ecstatic love. Love has both an ethical and an ecstatic or superethical dimension, and we should not confuse the two. It is quite clear, however, that ecstatic agape cannot be the norm of large, impersonal societies. A corporation cannot exist on the basis of forgiving seventy times seven an incompetent employee whose repeated ineptnes ...
