Ritalin Many drugs plague us in this setting we call modern society. The word drug by itself conjures up images of heathens slumping in the alleyways of America’s violent streets injecting train-tracked arms full of milky white euphoria. Perhaps even scarier might be those drugs prescribed to us daily by physicians we know and trust. Millions of prescription drugs with heavy side effects and sometimes-unknown characteristics and workings are being doled out to us every day. Ritalin, a drug presc

Pro Same-Sex Marriage When it comes to marriage, I feel everyone should have that right. Marriage is a very important decision, which no one should interfere with. For instance, here is a passage from Patricia Nell Warren's essay entitled Homosexuality Is a Legitimate Choice. Today some radical-right church leaders wish to bend APA[i] policy [which denies that homosexuality is not a disorder] to their belief that homosexuality is a crime, no different than murder and theft-as per some passages o

Tourette Syndrome A Misunderstood Disorder
Tourette Syndrome: A Misunderstood Disorder Tourette Syndrome (TS) is one of the most misunderstood neurological disorders. My first exposure to TS was, when I was quite young, seeing a man on the popular television show “L.A. Law” insult Vanna White. The media has continually portrayed people with TS as foul-mouthed comic relief. This is not the case. Tourette Syndrome is a very common and complicated disorder that effects children with it greatly. In 1885, a young French neurologist, Gilles d

The United States Supreme Court has on many occasions held up the fund
The United States Supreme Court has, on many occasions, held up the fundamental right, guaranteed by the constitution, to marry and procreate. This right is so widely believed that the supreme court doesn’t think that it is even an issue anymore, until it comes to same-sex marriages and gay parenting. In the past decade, courts have had a rising number of custody cases involving a homosexual parent. Typically, the homosexual parent does not get custody of the child because of some accepted soci

Nevertheless, is it wrong to use legal drugs, such as stimulants, for the same reason? Caffeine does enhance
Introduction
Introduction
Introduction Homo Sapiens have yearned for a reliable and consistently correct way of finding out if one is telling the truth since ancient times. “Early societies used torture. Statements made by a person on the rack were considered especially believable.” (Jussim, pg.65) There was also trial by ordeal, which was based on superstition. For instance, if there were two suspects for one crime, it was thought that the innocent would be stronger in combat and thus vanquish a guilty opponent. This ex

Teenage Suicide
Teenage Suicide
Teenage Suicide Suicide is intentional self-inflicted acts that end in death(Suicide, Compton's). After a series of traumatic events, normal coping abilities can be pushed over the edge; the result may be suicide. In each year, an average of 30,000 suicide deaths occur in the United States. It is estimated that 5,000 of those suicides are committed by teenagers(SA\VE, 2). One major reason that the suicide rate among teenagers is so high, is that the teenage years are a period of commotion. New

Sleep Apnea General Psychology Steven O'Brien, Psy.D Sleep, why do people sleep at all? Why can't we just stay awake? Some biologist suggest that sleep provides the opportunity to conduct self-repair and purge the body of it's waste that has built up during the day's activity. Nevertheless, the body is capable of repairing itself and disposing of wastes during waking hours, so sleep in a way really isn't necessary for routine maintenance (e.g., urinating, etc.).
