Eventually in 1936 Dean and his staff reported that 1.0 part per million (ppm) in drinking water would not cause dental fluorosis, or mottling. This was good news for the Aluminum industry. Between the years of 1855 – 1918 the European Smelters were getting complaints and lawsuits because of fluorine emission and byproduct contaminations done to local crops, herds and neighbors which were poisoned, damaged and killed. The American Smelter industry took notice, and became concerned. Interestingly, it was Andrew Mellon, the 49th Secretary of Treasury of the United States, and founder of Alcoa (Aluminum Company of America), who helped fund Dean’s research on the effects of fluoridated water.
Dr. Følling was one of the first physicians to apply detailed chemical analysis to the study of disease (Phenylketonuria, n.d.). His careful analysis of the urine of two affected siblings led him to request many physicians near Oslo to test the urine of other affected patients (Phenylketonuria, n.d.). This led to the discovery of the same substance that he had found in eight other patients (Phenylketonuria, n.d.). The substance found was subjected to much more basic and rudimentary chemical analysis (taste) (Phenylketonuria, n.d.). He conducted tests and found reactions that gave rise to benzaldehyde and benzoic acid, which led him to conclude the compound contained a benzene ring (Phenylketonuria, n.d.).
Sex + Money: A National Search for Human Worth is the title of a film directed by Joel Angyal and produced by Morgan Perry. The film aimed to address the problems with awareness, resources, and organization in the mission to end sex trafficking in the United States. In 2007, a group of photojournalist students traveled to more than 20 nations in an attempt to bring awareness through their love of photography and social justice work. Sex + Money calls to our attention that Americans are, for the most part, aware that sex trafficking happens abroad yet they do not believe it exists domestically. The problem here lies in education, but another major issue involves resources.
Some people claim that DDT can cause serious health effects on humans such as liver cancer, nervous system damage, birth defects and other reproductive. There are no real studies that show DDT causes any type of cancer and disastrous effects on human beings or animals. Paul Muller was a lifesaving Swiss chemist and Nobel laureate. In 1948 he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine for his 1939 discovery of insecticidal qualities and use if DDT in the control of vector diseases such as malaria and yellow fever. His first DDT patent was recorded in Switzerland in 1940, and the United States and Australia in 1943.
In an effort to combat the obesity epidemic in the United States, there has been a lot of blame and bad press on an artificial sweetener called High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS for short). While it is not the only factor in our quickly enlarging physiques and detonating rates of diabetes, there is a correlation. However, HFCS, in general, is not poison and poses no additional health risk associated with using HFCS compared to other sweeteners. To better understand HFCS, we must first understand its origin. The effects of World War II drastically influenced the history and production of sugar, with limited supplies and increasing need the United States started rationing sugar.
On the 30th of January 1933. Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany. Prior to this event, there were several causes of significant relevance; this included the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919, Hitler’s political activities as leader of the Nazi Party, the Great Depression, and the growing popularity of the Nazi Party. As well as this, some very significant consequences came from this event, including; Hitler’s assumption of dictatorial powers, the improvements he made to the German economy, his persecution of Jews and other minorities, as well his aggressive acts towards opposing and surrounding countries. These consequences were significant for many reasons, particularly due to their impact on society, allies and the opposition, as well as inducing the beginning of WWII.
Next I observed the isolation streak on my Blood Agar Plate and found pinpoint, round, entire and flat colony morphology as well as an alpha hemolytic reaction pattern, indicating red blood cell ion leakage which is characteristic of S. epidermidis. The final test used Mannitol Salt Agar that selects for Staphylococcus bacteria because they are salt tolerant and differentiates between species based on agar color. The agar remained red after incubation with my unknown culture indicating that the Mannitol-D sugar was not fermented. After running this series of test I can accurately conclude that my unknown #14 culture was Staphylococcus epidermidis. At age 11, Jonathan Markway was diagnosed with congenital heart disease.
Similar to the first, the second five-year plans focused on industry and consolidation of power. However having learnt from mistakes during the unstructured first plan, Stalin introduced the idea of a better standard of living and consumer goods to create a society that brought everyone together, helping ‘Mother Russia’. It is believed that Stalin used the first five year plans to cement his position as leader of Russia, introducing heavy industry of which brought many people together. During the second plan, he increased the production of weapons, means of transport and arms that are all essential when fighting in a war. It was becoming clear that Stalin’s rivalry with the Western world was creating the reason for a ‘war economy’.

Toulmin Analysis of “Don’t Make Teen Drinking Easier” T.R. Reid argued in his article “Let my Teenager Drink” that the United States should lower the drinking age in order to show them how to drink responsibly. In “Don’t Make Teen Drinking Easier” Joseph Califano writes against this article giving sufficient reasons as to why lowering the drinking age can be dangerous. Califano discusses research that proves that American fifteen year olds were less likely than those of other nations with a lower drinking age to actually be intoxicated two or more times. Teen drinking is one of the leading causes to deaths and can also cause damages on growth and health for them.
