In my opinion, I believe it is one of the best ways to deal with a deceased person. It gives the family of the loved one closure, peace, and sanity to the situation. In the ancient times in Egypt, mummification was the most common way to dispose of a corpse. This was done by removal of all organs, including the brain, then stuffing the body, and lastly, wrapping it in linens. Over time, people became wiser and thought of other ways to dispose a dead body.
When the person dies the family pays for the transportation cost of the remains. After dissection the body is cream made and sent back to the family. These are just a few reasons why I’m for the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act. It allows people the right to give or not give their body to science for study after they die. The families of the donor can be a part of the movement against grave robbing.
Critical Thinking: 1) Why do you find this career to be of interest? A coroner has to examine a dead body to find out how the person died, what could have been the cause of death. 2) What are the factors that make a career in forensic science appealing? I like how a coroner has to perform autopsies to figure out how a person died through surgeries and tests. 3) Does the average salary of forensic scientist compete with other professions that require equal education?
Funeral Ritual of the Parsees Their custom is the disposal of the dead, which, however strange it is even proven by sciene today that it is still one of the most sanitary ways to do it. Their custom belief came from the idea that it was the best way to dispose of the body for the upmost respect for the dead and the upmost respect of the living. This ritual can be divided into two parts. Those that relate to the disposal of the body, and those that relate to the good of the soul. They say in order to better understand this ritual you have to look at Zoroastrian or Parsi ideas of sanitation, segregation, purification, and cleanliness.
Case Study: JIT at Arnold Palmer Hospital Managing Operations across the Supply Chain – GSCM 206 1. What do you recommend be done when an error is found in a pack as it is opened for an operation? The most basic and immediate solution is to get another pack and order a replacement as soon as possible. Even though the Arnold Palmer Hospital uses the JIT system, they do have spare surgical packs for emergencies but they are bulky, must remain sterile and take up a lot of space. By adopting the JIT system, these types of errors are known instantly and the delivery company can be notified within a day so they can ascertain the reason for the error and take appropriate action to correct the error and ensure that the spare surgical pack is replaced.
This can be seen in the act of the burial ceremony itself, how “two days before the ceremony the bones of the fallen are brought and put in a tent which has been erected, and people make whatever offerings they wish to their own dead” (Thucydides 143). Pericles also mentions that ‘the Athenians followed this ancient custom” and that “it is [his] duty to follow the tradition” (144). It is easy to see how proud the Athenians are of their ancestors in the way that they make sure to honour their ancient traditions and customs when it comes to the dead. Along with being a proud people with many traditions and a great respect for their ancestors, Athenians are also very into abiding by their laws. This is possibly due in part to the fact that they have a democratic government where everyone has a say.
Dylan 1 Dylan Quick ENGL 1301 Jill Barris October 23, 2010 Fixing Up The Dead The Embalmer in the story was talking about the routines and how to make the corpse look good for the grieving mourners at the funeral home. First thing to do is to drain the blood out of the body so the body will not be infected and the embalmer put the fluid in the corpse to preserve it. “It is necessary to remove the blood, and doing this not only helps the disinfecting, but removes the principal cause of disfigurements due to discoloration.” (312) The embalmer mentioned that there are different kinds of fluids and how they can affect the deceased body. Not only that, the use of the fluids can be determined to use based on the person’s age and type of
The paintings were often made with the purpose of making a pleasant afterlife for the deceased. Some tomb paintings show activities that the deceased were doing when they were alive and wished to carry on doing forever. While being buried the book of the dead was also buried with the deceased person. It’s important because it was used for the deceased to go to the afterlife. Pottery items were deposited in tombs of the dead.
There are many different techniques archeologists used to study ancient egyptian mummies over the years. Over the past century techniques got much more advanced. Technology had a big influence on studies of the ancient mummies. It was an egyptian religion after someones death to preserve their bodies so that they could use them in the afterlife. First the clothes were removed and they washed and purified the body with a natron solution.
A growing concern on the epidemic and within the anthropological community remains to be the fashion in which the population disposes of their dead. The World Health Organization has released a safe burial resource that helps to alleviate the spread of the disease through the burial and transportation of the diseased deceased. This resource includes the guidelines for the appropriate procedure to prepare, transport and bury the body with heavy emphasis on informing the local population on how the spread of the disease is increased with the culture's current burial practice. The World Health Organization or WHO have stated "Be aware of the family’s cultural practices and religious beliefs. Help the family understand why some practices cannot be done because they place the family or others at risk for exposure.
