While he is refueling the car his brother opens the container and breathes in the retrovirus. Josh is pissed but he thinks that the dose is too small to cause any damage. This chapter seemed to be very important. From the way things are going I would say there is going to be more to this incident than was just the one chapter. This chapter was also interesting, you learn BioGen has not only discovered a new gene but they are also going to try to market it.
“Analyzing the Text” Michael Levin’s, “The Case for Torture” argues that there are various reasons for allowing torture in the United States of America. Michael Levin believes that torture is justified when victims are at risk, claiming that torture is not merely permissible but morally mandatory. The author makes hypothetical scenarios in which people’s lives are in danger and preventing future events from occurring. Then stating his position on torture when people’s lives are placed in danger. Levin’s target audience is Americans because his use of American symbolism such as “July 4,” and “unconstitutional.” In addition, the United States is not the only victim of terrorist attacks.
PET scans can also show the brain in action which is useful for psychological research. However this is an extremely costly technique and therefore not easily available for research, also as the patient has to be injected with a radioactive substance, the technique can only be used a couple of times. PET scans are less precise than MRI scans. Twin studies are also of value to the bio psychologists in investigating the assumption that behaviour is due to our genetic makeup. MZ twins share 100% of their genes, same behaviour is
In addition, a Japanese study found that children with cell phones won’t make friends with children that don’t have them. This article is very well-written because it presents the author’s real life experiences and backs up his determinations with facts. The article is also logical because it explores not only the impact of people’s technological obsession but also the message it sends. The author says technological obsession sends the message that, “Somewhere else there is someone who I care about more than you. I want to know what they have to say more than what you have to say to me now.” This addiction also has profound impacts elsewhere.
Dershowitz makes it clear that he is skeptical about the idea of national ID cards and states that he supports national identity cards with chips matching a person’s fingerprints. I also support this idea for the same reason as him, the fact that fingerprints are difficult to fake. But how will having file of a person’s finger print make things so secure, and automatically determine who’s a terrorist and who’s not? Consider the attacks of 9/11. All of the highjackers had ID cards and passports yet they still were able to learn how to fly and even take over multiple planes to attack the United States.
Preparation Outline for informative speech: Stem Cell Research Title: The Wonders of Stem Cell Research Thesis: Stem cell research is a very controversial topic, today I will give you some information about the research, so you can decide for yourself if stem cell research should be allowed to continue or not. Introduction: * (Attention material: visual ) Do any of you know who this man is? Well he is Dr. James Thomson, one of the leading scientific innovators in the research of stem cells. (Audience connection) I’m sure at some point you have all heard about stem cell research. Maybe just like me you too just don’t know enough about the subject to have a well-informed opinion of you own.
Although she did not get infected, there was a very high chance that she could have been. If there were not any animals to test, then there would not have been that risk to begin with. Some say that certain animals are used for science because they are very similar to humans. The keyword here is “similar” because the word “similar” could be the cause of allowing someone to live or ending their life. Experiments may not always go right, data might have been recorded incorrectly; there are many things that could cause harm to both humans and animals.
Many people fear that these theories will make excuses for criminal acts and divorce. The nurture side of the argument has best been supported by studies of infant and child temperaments. John Watson showed how he could create a phobia in a young child with the Baby Alfred experiments and new studies are showing that a sense of humor is influenced by the environment rather than pre-determined by genes. To this day, one can be put at ease because genes may provide a template of who one becomes but cannot determine everything (Powell, 2009). Although both biology and the environment affect one’s behavior, the role the environment plays is more significant due to the lack of biological make-up in humans.
For years animal testing has been considered a crucial way of determining whether a makeup product is safe to use on humans. However many people forget that it is inhumane, unethical, and there are countless other ways to test products that are much more reliable and much more humane. Think about it, what breaks one human out in a rash, won’t necessarily break another person out in a rash. So logically animals might react totally different than a human would to those same products. Animals are a very unreliable way of testing whether something is safe or not, and there are other options available to researchers.
Animal abuse is a serious issue that is often overlooked because it is not on everyone’s top priorities. However, this does that mean the issue does not matter. Many organizations such as PETA try to raise the people’s awareness about the issue. Animal Cruelty commercial by Sarah McLachlan provides the audience with information and the crucial conditions of the abused animals and offers ways for people who are interested to help such as donations and adoptions. In order to appeal and grab interest of a larger audience, the commercial possess very strong qualities of ethos, pathos and logos.
