All humans are equal so we should all have the same rights. You say ‘I don’t even hate the Taliban who shot me’ but that man could have killed you and you wouldn’t have made the speech. People like him are preventing children from getting their education, so surely you should hate the Taliban. The next generation won’t have the same education as us, and they will not be taught about life and respecting others. How can there be peace in the world if people don’t have rights?
Spencer Beard Fieldwork Assignment #1 Storytelling Styles Among Nerds and Geeks The group I decided to study are nerds and geeks, like those who frequent your local comic book stores. To clarify, let me define these terms: nerd: An 'individual', i.e. a person who does not conform to society's beliefs that all people should follow trends and do what their peers do. often highly intelligent but socially rejected because of their obsession with a given subject, usually computers, comic books, games(role-playing, video, board), movies, etc (urbandictionary.com). Geek: not to be confused with a nerd, a geek does not have to be smart, a geek is someone who is generally not athletic, and enjoys Video Games; Comic Books; being on the internet, and etc (Wikipedia.org).
Geoffrey Dodson Dodson 1 English 099 S. Covell 3-11-14 Amazing Things: Devices Offered but Never Seen. Daniel H. Wilson described many devices that charm the mind, and make you think of what the future may hold, in his book Where‘s My Jetpack? A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future that Never Arrived. Two devices that he outlined that are most desired are robot servants and universal translators. Wilson also left one out of his book that really should have been added: cybernetic body implants.
It has gotten to the point where we have the mentality that we are in need of assistance at all time but everything and we much rather let other things work for us instead of us working for ourselves. In our society we have important scientist that go about building robots for our new world. We often look to all the sci-fi films and wish to recreate the flying cars, talking robots, and the futuristic homes, yet we are not in the correct time for them all. Notice, saying all, we do have enough to make the flying cars and the talking robots. It’s apart of this new world to put things in that finally call to throughout the ages and match the years of technology that we should already have.
Would an AI really be able to make a deep emotional connection with a being who thinks millions of times more slowly than it does, and who lives such a radically different existence from its unbounded, silicon and fiber-optic universe? Think of it this way: Could you really fall in love with an Operating System? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is still a distant dream but the experts are already pondering its potential impact on humanity. Even AI far less sophisticated than Samantha's could engender some serious issues, says Kate Darling, an intellectual property researcher at MIT’s Media Lab who is also on the forefront of robo-ethics. One-sided love affairs are more likely, at first.
In my opinion, parents should not vaccinate their children if they want to protect them from developing autism. First of all parents should not vaccinate their children, if they want to protect them from developing autism, because families all over the nation are pointing to childhood vaccinations as the cause for autism. Despite what government and medical authorities say about the safety of vaccines, parents are wise to hear what the parents of autistic children say about their children being normal until vaccinations (Attkinson, 2011). Even though this is not official scientific proof, it is definitely loud enough to make any parent think twice before vaccinating their children. Secondly, parents should oppose vaccinating their children as a way of protection from developing autism because of the significant step of banning mercury from being included in vaccines, which was taken by the US government related to this matter (Campbell, 2004).
Absence of Hammurabi’s Code * Without the Hammurabi code, people will be able to do whatever that they want and won’t get fined for it. * Also according to Hammurabi if someone were to get hit by someone above them all they had to do was pay them and without that people would go around and just hitting people for no reason. * Also if someone were to break into someone’s house they won’t have to be buried in the hole that they made and they can just get anything that they want and get away with it. * The eye for and eye won’t exist, people will just have to go around and chopping off people arms or eyes. Without this people will go around and be crazy.
The Celt's had a highly developed sense of rights and duties and this would be measured in caste's. Those who had transgressed against the law, would have lost all their rights and privileges and seen as the lowest caste. Offenders would also be prohibited from being employed in any position of trust or practising a profession. There were no prisons in Celtic Britain and it was up to the individual to redeem themselves. The isolation an offender felt would of been greater than that felt in today's prisons and therefore the offender would be reluctant to repeat the experience and also act as a deterrent to others.
I don’t think this was ethical. I don’t think information discussed in a board should be discussed or brought to the media unless they are doing something illegal. Without honesty and trust these board members will also have these issues. I think policies and consequences should handle situations like this. Someone should not be able to show dishonesty, lack of respect or unethical decisions and still be a part of that
