  • Downs Syndrome, Turners Syndrome, And Redgreen Color Blindness - 682 words
    1.) Three genetic disorders are Down's syndrome, Turner's syndrome, and Red-green color blindness. They are all caused by undesirable genes inherited by normal genetic mechanisms.

  • Color Blindness - 477 words
    Color Blindness Color Blindness is the inability to distinguish or recognize colors. Color blindness occurs mostly in men, and is caused by a defect in the retina (nerve tissue which changes light images to nerve impulses, which the brain sees as pictures). Total color blindness, when all colors are seen as variations of gray, is known as monochromatism. Monochromatism is inherited and extremely rare; it affects men and women almost equally. Partial color blindness is called dichromatism and is generally the inability to distinguish reds and greens. It is the most common form of color blindness, affecting about seven percent of men and less than one percent of women. Dichromatism is identifi ...

  • In Shakespeares King Lear The Issue Of Sight Against Blindness Is A Recurring Theme Blindness Refers To Be Unable To See The - 443 words
    In Shakespeare's "King Lear" the issue of sight against blindness is a recurring theme. Blindness refers to be unable to see the right from the wrong or good from the bad. King Lear and Gloucester are two prime examples of this theme. Even thou, Lear and Gloucester share the same mental flaw, it's nature, it's causes, and its effect was different. Each of these characters blindness was the primary cause of the unfortunate decisions they made, decisions that they would eventually regret. The nature of Gloucester's blindness was that he was unable to see the goodness of Edgar and the evil of Edmund. Gloucester was unable to see what was going around him. Instead, he only saw what was on the su ...

  • Invisible Man And Glaring Blindness - 1,325 words
    Invisible Man And Glaring Blindness Blindness is a very interesting and important theme to Ellisons Invisible Man. Oftentimes throughout the novel the Narrator is blinded and is unable to see the events, which are happening to him. The Narrator is a black man who thinks of himself as invisible to the rest of the world. Many times the Narrator is given hints and clues on how to better himself, but his own blindness prevents him from being a visible member of society. His own blindness prevents him from being nothing more than a silhouette of a person to not only himself, but the rest of the world as well. The Narrator is first blinded when he is supposed to participate in the "battle royal." ...

  • King Lear Blindness - 1,389 words
    King Lear - Blindness In Shakespeare's "King Lear" the issue of sight against blindness is a recurring theme. In Shakespearean terms, being blind does not refer to the physical inability to see. Blindness is here a mental flaw some characters posses, and vision is not derived solely from physical sight. King Lear and Gloucester are the two prime examples Shakespeare incorporates this theme into. Each of these characters' lack of vision was the primary cause of the unfortunate decisions they made, decisions that they would eventually come to regret. The blindest of all was undoubtedly King Lear. Because of his high position in society he is supposed to be able to distinguish good from bad: un ...

  • Sight And Blindness: A Metaphor For Humanitys Place In The Universe - 574 words
    Sight and Blindness: a Metaphor for Humanity's Place in the Universe In Oedipus the King, sight and blindness were used as a metaphor for humanity's place in the universe. The gods and unchangeable fate remained hidden from humans; therefore, they were blind to the truth of existence. It is ironic that the only insight Oedipus had into the gods' will was through a blind man. Teiresias was a blind prophet who could "see" the truth about Oedipus' situation. The prophet was physically blind, and Oedipus was blind to his scandalous past. To explain this to Oedipus, Teiresias said, "You don't see how much alike we are" (749). Although he was blind to the outside world, Teiresias could foresee the ...

  • The Theme Of Blindness In King Lear - 913 words
    The Theme of Blindness in King Lear In the tragedy King Lear, the term blindness has an entirely different meaning. It is not a physical flaw, but the inability of the characters to use their thoughts and emotions to see a person for whom they truly are. They can only read what is presented to them on the surface. King Lear, Gloucester and Albany are three prime examples characters who suffered most by having this flaw. Lear was by far the blindest of the three. Because Lear was the King, one would expect him to have superb reasoning skills, but his lack of insight kept him from making wise choices. This is the flaw that led to his downfall. Lear's first big mistake was letting himself be fo ...

  • There Are Many Definitions Of The Word Blindness In The Dictionary Two - 444 words
    There are many definitions of the word blindness in the dictionary. Two of them pertain to the story about Oedipus and Teiresias. Both of the men are blind, but they each possess a different type of blindness. The type of blindness possessed by Oedipus is probably worse than the type of blindness possessed by Teiresias.

The second definition is the inability or unwillingness to perceive or understand. This definition would be used in a sentence as: ones blindness to anothers faults.

  • Adoption: Nature Or Nurture - 1,361 words
    Adoption: Nature Or Nurture? Adoption: Nature or Nurture? By Clay Cooper 12/2/00 Are parents those who give birth to a child or those who care for a child? Does nature or nurture make a woman a mother? As more and more heartbreaking tugs-of-war between biological and adoptive parents surface, anyone searching for a baby has good reason for concern(Casey 119). Baby Jessica was raised from infancy by adoptive parents, Jan and Roberta DeBoer. For two and a half years Jessica was at the heart of one of the most bitter custody battles in America, caught between the parents in Michigan who reared her and the parents in Iowa who gave birth to her and wanted her back (Ingrassia and Springen 60).

  • Affirmative Action - 2,162 words

Affirmative action is defined as the equal opportunities given to women, minorities, and small groups so they will have the same tools, education, and allotment to achieve their goals in life. Since affirmative action came about, debate arises daily about if it is truly equal and fair. Was it a word made as a cushion to the people so they will feel equal? Another interpretation is did this word actually make the white male group less important and unequal to the minority group, doing more harm to others than good. Affirmative action is not used unequally in the world, ...

While trying to make equal races between the people of today it puts one in front of the other, as if they were more important. These students do not have the same grades as those being turned away. This is strange, why is one of lesser value allowed in while one of a stronger stature is turned away. Forbath and Torres are in favor of the 10 Percent Plan. The 10 Percent Plan provides the top ten percent of students in poor schools the opportunity to go to U.T. and other colleges. This act does not put one race above the ...
