Throughout time there has been a transition of power from one individual to another. This has been a time honored tradition that takes place every four years. This remarkable tradition is formally known as the United States Presidency. Every four years there is an election to guarantee that the most fit person is selected to run our country. There is usually two to four runners for this grand position but only one is deemed the winner and the American President. So far in our history there have

Who are the homeless? They range from children to adults and even in some cases, families. Why are they homeless? Poverty, lack of jobs or well paying jobs, decline in Social Services, domestic violence, mental illness, and chemical dependency contribute to the majority of the homeless within our soci

Cigarette smoking is one of the most powerful addictions known even mo
Cigarette smoking is one of the most powerful addictions known; even more powerful than a dependence on alcohol, heroin, or cocaine. To grasp this well-documented fact, one really doesn’t have to study all the supporting scientific evidence. One simply has to consider that no drug is self administered with the persistence, regularity, and frequency of a cigarette. Unfortunately, many people suffer and die due to the use of cigarettes. One such example involves Bryce’s grandmother, and we will s

There is a myth that people aren’t ready for their, daughters, sisters, wives and mothers coming home in body bags. Does this mean we're ready to have our sons, brothers, husbands and fathers come home in body bags? Is a woman's life more valuable than a man's? But is this a valid reason to keep women in safe roles? I say NO, because all our lives are precious... men's just as much as women's. It's NEVER a happy moment to see our people return from a war in a body bag. Now to just a few women

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease will kill a person within one year of contraction. It is yet unknown how Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease chooses its victims, but it does seem to have accomplices, known as the spongiform encephalopathies, in the rest of the animal kingdom.

Immune-mediated diabetes formerly called insulin-dependent diabetes is
Immune-mediated diabetes (formerly called insulin-dependent diabetes) is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Immune-mediated diabetes is also called type 1 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes your body destroys the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, usually leading to a total failure to produce insulin. It typically starts in children or young adults who are slim, but can start at any age. Black males also have a higher risk of developing diabetes. Without insulin, your body c

To Flee or Not to Flee? The greatest shame for any man is to receive a harangue by comrades calling him/her a coward. In The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane, this is exactly what the main character, Henry Fleming, does his best to defer. One of Henry’s serious moral dilemmas was that he fled from a battle during the Civil War for selfish reasons. He realizes that it was a big mistake to desert them and the guilt that accompanies it almost compelled him to tell his unknown comrades, but he

Don't you wonder why we never see newspaper headlines about the health benefits of masturbation? Every month you hear of a study proving that a daily glass of wine or a brisk walk through the park is good for the heart. Considering how the media loves sex, it's surprising that we haven't seen the headline Study Shows Daily Masturbation Reduces Stress, Invigorates Heart, and Prolongs Life. It's just another example of the taboo shrouding of this simple sexual activity, because all of that is t

Censorship and the Internet: Freedom of speech has been one of the most important and fought over freedoms that this country has ever known. Since its commercial inception in 1992, the Internet, has been a topic of debate for the past six years. The wide spread argument has to do with the content that the Internet provides. So, when congress began it's hellish quest of censoring one of the worlds fastest growing sources of information it was no wonder that an anti-censor campaign would begin. T

The media today concentrates intensely on drug and alcohol abuse, homicides, AIDS and so on.

Whatever you say or do, just realize those little bundles of joy are listening and watching your every move. Babies may look passive and inactive, but inside those miniature heads, their brains are working all the time. The average American newborn weighs 7 to 7.5 pounds, measures between 19 and 21

A considerable size of society is in favor of Euthanasia mostly because they feel that as a democratic country, we have the right to decide for ourselves whether or not to terminate someone's life. The stronger and more widely held opinion is against Euthanasia primarily because society feels that it is god's task to determine when someone's time has come, and we as human beings are in no position to behave as god and end someone's life.

What I think about personality typing. As we look around us we observe the great variety of personality traits among people. For example, some people are very out going and fun oriented, while other people are more quiet and introspective. It is from these observations one can confidently say that everybody is gifted with a unique personality. Can we model, at least approximately, human personality, or if we can model human personality, does such a model have any value or interest? In the physi

During the normal digestion process, the body converts food into glucose (sugar) to be used by the bodys cells as a source of energy.

Double-entry bookkeeping began in the commercial city-states of medieval Italy and was well developed by the time of the earliest preserved double-entry books, from 1340 in Genoa. The first published accounting work was written in 1494 by the venetian monk Luca Pacioli (1450-1520). Although it disseminated rather than created knowledge

When we hear the term physical fitness, most Americans associate it with athletic ability, including brute strength and sheer muscle. One who sees physical fitness in this way has been misinformed. To be physically fit doesn¹t mean you need to be 6¹4² 220 pounds and have rippling biceps. Although strength is a part of physical fitness, it is by no means the only or even the most important area of consideration. Physical fitness can be defined as: the ability to adapt to the demands and stresses

The philosopher, social scientist, historian and revolutionary, Karl Marx, was without a doubt the most influential socialist thinker to arise in the 19th century. Even though throughout his lifetime he was largely ignored by scholars, his social, economic and political ideas were eventually accepted in the socialist movement after his death in 1883. Karl Heinrich Marx was born in a middle-class home in Trier, which was then known as Prussia on the river Moselle in Germany on May 5, 1818. He ca

A group of friends are sitting a dorm room on a Saturday night. They are talking and laughing, enjoying each other's company. None of them are hostile or violent. None want to cause trouble.

All methods share the following guidelines: Therapy always is individualized to meet the specific concerns and needs of each unique trauma survivor, based upon careful interview and questionnaire assessments at the beginning of (and during) treatment.

Memory is the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. A repressed memory is one that is retained in the sub conscious mind, where one is not aware of it but where it can still affect both conscious thoughts and behavior. When memory is distorted or confabulated, the result can be what has been called the False Memory Syndrome: a condition in which a person's identity and interpersonal relationships are entered around a memory of traumatic experience which is objectively fals
