Medical Testing on Animals Every year, nearly 100 million animals die in research laboratories at the hands of curious scientists who perform outdated and inaccurate tests that prove no benefit to humans or animals.

Causes of the American Revolution How England Instigated The American Revolution Soon after England established the colonies in the New World, it began a period of salutary neglect. The English rarely intervened with colonial business. It was during this time that the colonies began gradually to think and act independently of England.

Subezces such as eye shadow and soap are tested on rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, dogs, and other animals, despite the fact that the test results don?t help prevent or treat human illness or injury.

A Good Nurse What is a good nurse? A good nurse has many roles to fill; physician?s team mate, patient advocates, and educators are just a few titles a nurse carries.

Nurses distribute medicines as ordered, ensure that they are given properly, and follow up with the patients. Nurses are there to help prov
As we emerge from young adulthood into midlife adulthood many changes takes place. The course text describes middle adulthood as the years between ages 40 and 65, but this definition is more of a generalization, for there is no specific biological or social event that marks this period. Instead, the middle years are marked more by growing individual differences and the paths that one decides to embark on. In other words, what people do and how they live has a lot to do with how they age. People

The unborn human is still a human life and not all the wishful thinking of those advocating repeal of abortion laws, can alter this. Who chooses life or death for this little one because abortion is the taking of a human life? The health of women who are mentally ill before they become pregnant, is not improved by an abortion. Are there any medical indications for abortion? As an opponent to abortion, I will readily agree, as will all those who are against abortion, that pregnancy resulting from

Case Analysis #1 Roe v. Wade 1973  Roe v. Wade was a monumental case in support of legal abortions. Although I personally do not agree with the decision of the court, many states had to change their laws because of it. Many women were forced to travel to other states in order to obtain a legal abortion or those who could not afford to travel to other states for a legal abortion were forced to get illegal abortions. According to Hontz (1998), ?Prior to Roe, nearly two-thirds of the states prohib
Discovery of oil and gas peaked in the 1960?s. Production is set to peak too, with five Middle Eastern countries regaining control of world supply (Campbell). Almost two-thirds of the world's total reserves of crude oil are located in the Middle East, notably in Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq (Green Party USA). An assessment of future world oil supply and its depletion pattern shows that between 1980 and 1998 there was an 11.2 per cent increase in world crude oil production, from 59.6 to 66.9 milli

Doctors and scientists have come up with lots of gadgets that can take over for parts of the body that break or wear out. Artificial blood, on the other hand, can be mind boggling. One reason is that most people think of blood as more than just connective tissue that carries oxygen and nutrients. Instead, blood represents life. Many cultures and religions place special significance on it, and its importance has even affected the English language. You might refer to your cultural or ancestral tra

Peer pressure has a much greater effect on adolescent teens than any other factor. Think about it your teen spends more of his/her waking hours with peers than family members. The interaction is direct, and much more powerful than the influence of teachers and other authority figures. Peer pressure tends to have more of an effect on children with low self esteem. If a child feels compelled to fit in, the teen may do things that go against his/her beliefs simply to be part of the group. Peer pres

Problems with Technology Every day scientists and inventors are hard at work looking at ways to improve the technology we all know and love.

The articles will show if vaccines can trigger autism, the risky effects and if vaccines are linked to autism. A
Every person dreams, but some of these people dream to form a better life for themselves and help distract feelings of loneliness. People do not want to believe that their dreams cannot or will not come true although typically these dreams are unrealistic and unreachable. This shows that dreams help distract the person from the reality they are facing. In contrast, the person may be let down when they realize they cannot accomplish their dreams. Following this idea further, characters such as Ge

Have you ever looked around at a restaurant that screens the local sporting events? If so, then I am sure that you have noticed the different types of fans that came to watch the hodgepodge of contests. Whether it is football, basketball, baseball, or soccer, you will typically encounter four types of sports fans; the diehard, the homer, the casual, and of course the overly annoying bandwagon. No matter the environment, these four factions could never get along. The arguments could last a lifet

Women\'s Reproductive Rights and Marital Rights: A Comparison of Twenty Countries As early as 1871, Elizabeth Cady Stanton recognized that suffrage alone would not guarantee women?s emancipation. Rather, she noted that in order for a woman to be a truly equal and independent citizen, she must possess the ability to control her own circumstances. "The pride of every man is that he is free to carve out his own destiny. A woman has no such pride" (DuBois, 1981:140). Through this recognition she acc
