Sociologist Weber supported this view stating that the growing disenchantment of the world will create a “desacralization of the world”. This view is backed by the Eurobarometer survey(2005) which found that 38% of people in the Uk believed in a good compared to around 60-70% in the 1980s. Bruce (2008) suggests as a result of the advances in science that Religion has been marginalized into the sidelines of life and is now considered to a last resort in areas of life that Science and Technology cannot help. Such as passing in exams or surviving an incurable illness. In bruce's words “when we have tried every cure for cancer, some of us pray”.

One of my favorite television shows in this genre is House. The show's central character is Dr. Gregory House, an unconventional medical genius who heads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (PPTH) in New Jersey. Another show that was discontinued but very popular was Quincy M.E. The series starred Dr. Quincy, a strong-willed, very principled Medical Examiner (forensic coroner) in Los Angeles County working to ascertain facts about suspicious deaths. This genre is the one that I can really get into and tone everything out while I am watching it;
I have personal experience with learning about these two jobs- I shadowed numerous orthopedic sports medicine surgeons and physician’s assistants during my senior year of high school as part as an academic internship. I observed many different surgeries and watched how these doctors interacted with all kinds of patients. This internship got me interested in these two careers, which is why I picked them for my research. An orthopedic surgeon operates on patients with musculoskeletal problems- either degenerative, traumatic, congenital, or just plain-old injuries. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons ,half of what an orthopedic surgeon’s practice is geared towards are non-surgical, and the other half surgical management.

Many smokers would argue that smoking is needed for society to function as proceeds do go to the government, but in actuality the lives of every Canadian citizen would be made better within a year of smoking becoming illegal.
In the past few years, the industry has mounted an effective, organized campaign against the legalized importation of drugs from Canada. "America's big drug companies are intensifying their lobbying efforts to change the Canadian health-care system and eliminate subsidized prescription drug prices enjoyed by Canadians," CanWest News Service reported on June 9, 2003. A prescription drug industry spokesman in Washington confirmed to CanWest News Service that information contained in confidential industry documents is accurate, and that $1 million U.S. is being added to the already heavily funded drug lobby against the Canadian system. PhRMA was the leading drug industry trade group behind the increased lobbying and public relations campaign in Canada. PhRMA was also independently spending $450,000 to target the booming Canadian internet pharmacy industry, which has been providing Americans with prescription drugs at lower prices than in the United
Zhao Jiang Brendan Watts Sociology 1020 576 Chapter 21: Population and Politics: Voodoo Demography, Population Aging, and Canadian Social Policy April 7, 2014 An Article Response to Population and Politics A Brief of the Article In the article, “Population and politics: voodoo demography, population aging, and Canadian social policy,” Ellen Gee interprets her opposition towards the popular notion that the senior citizens who were born in the years of baby boom have taken advantages of the society more than they deserve and created burden to the younger generations. In this article, the author demonstrates the fact that it is a trend to blame the social pressure on the baby boomers by providing many pieces of news and commentaries. And then, she claims that there are no substantial empirical evidences for this demography. To solve this mysterious burden upon the younger generations of taxpayers, the author offers three possible explanations for the unjust accusation towards the elder people. The first reason she provides is that the lack of pension funds.
