Other than the chance discovery, another factor that held back Fleming was government funding. After Fleming published his results, the government wasn’t interested in developing it because they thought there was no need for it so with no funding, Fleming decided abandon his research. After his discovery it took Florey and Chain another 10 years to read about it and start the research. At this time, WW2 had broke out which deprived the government of a lot of money as many factories and other places were being bombed, hence Florey and Chain also didn’t get any funding from the british government because penicillin required a range of equipment and people which the government couldn’t provide. Penicillin only came to Britain after it had been mass produced in USA which took another 3 years.
In her essay “Organ Sales Will Save Lives”, Joanna Mackay explains how legalizing kidney sales would be beneficial in more ways than one; saving the lives of patients willing to buy kidneys, and with legal compensation, helping to end poverty in the countries of those willing to sell. In her essay, Mackay explains that even though there are nearly 350,000 people suffering from end-stage renal disease, an almost always-fatal disease, treatment options are limited exclusively to transplant and dialysis. Though effective, dialysis is an expensive and painful process, making the patient dependent on a machine for the rest of their life. Transplant, however, is far more successful; new equipment and anti-rejection treatments make it an incredibly safe and effective procedure. When a matching donor can’t be found within immediate family members, patients must wait for a kidney from deceased donors, such as old age or accident victims.
Why did he need money? His grandma had been brought a fatal disease without money to operation. He earned money to help her illness, but it seems impossible with his negligible salary. He really needed money to save her, and that was a big reason he came to this show. He is respectful grandchild.
Throughout the Civil War, medical knowledge was extremely basic. Many doctors didn’t understand infection, and those who did, did little or nothing to prevent it. Approximately two thirds of the soldiers died from infections as a result of unsound hygiene and sanitary conditions. Disease was extremely prominent in Civil War camps because of the disgusting conditions that the soldiers had to live in. Even though during the civil war, many medical advancements were being made, they were not being made quick enough to save approximately 400,000 soldiers who died from disease and infection.
This could easily be lead to unwanted and unethical practices by scientist’s everywhere. In the case of Henrietta, She was virtually unknown, and died clueless of the next scientific generation she started. Most of her family found this extremely unethical, and some demanded compensation, as well as knowledge. One of those family members was Deborah, Henrietta’s daughter. Deborah’s goal, which she sought throughout the novel, could be what satisfies both the individual as well as scientific research.
Since he was unable to work, he was not able to provide medical insurance for himself or his wife and children. The government offered a medical program, which began in the 1960’s, Medicaid, which he applied for. He hated to resort to asking the government to help take care of his family but he knew that with kids and him being so ill that it was the only option. He also became eligible for a type of social security because he was incapable of working. The
The person who best fits this example is talked about by author Rebecca Skloot in her book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Skloot talks about Henrietta’s life as a child,how her family suffered, and mainly how Henrietta’s dignity was breached. Skloot describes how Henrietta had no idea what was going on with her treatment when she says, “Henrietta knew nothing about her cells growing in a laboratory. After leaving the hospital, she went back to life as usual”(42). This shows how doctors and scientists never informed Henrietta about anything about her treatment, in the only hospital that would take her, Johns Hopkins.
An example of Evyn being unintelligent was when her so-called friends, Andrea’s group, calls her Evelyn and doesn’t talk to her unless it’s to ask about updates with Ajax, she doesn’t realize that they’re just using her. Evyn was also, very inconsiderate and selfish. She didn’t seem to notice how happy her father, Birdie was after he had proposed to Eleni. Evyn doesn’t seem to care what his father felt and made it harder for him. “Bounce” was an interesting book that showed problems that actually happen to 13 year olds.
I couldn't ... commercial principles and practices, which was a sort of bookkeeping thing, was beyond me. I can still remember, you know, DR, B black, P purple, CR and all that sort of jargon. But I was never good at keeping the books. My wife looks after the family finances, and it's just as well that she did, because I wouldn't have been able to handle it I don't think. But again, that was ... the stress I suppose on maths into the commercial stream was something that inevitably led to my departure from school when I was
The lack of school material, clothes, or even living in terrible conditions can lead to the not reaching their full potential due to the lack of motivation. The government in 2012 released 3.5 billion dollars to The Native American Reservations, which for 350,000 people is equivalent to 1000 dollars (Volz, “$3.4B Indian Lawsuit Ends, Disbursements to Begin”). However, how far might this money go in a struggling household? The insufficient environment that Native Americans live in is nothing like we might find in any cities in the Northwest. The lack of motivation caused by years of not having a job and watching your family suffer in poverty is a condition that not too many of us are familiar with.
