Animal Experimentation
Animal Experimentation
Animal Experimentation Introduction Animal experimentation has been a part of biomedical and behavioral research for several millennia; experiments with animals were conducted in Greece over 2,000 years ago. Many advances in medicine and in the understanding of how organisms function have been the direct result of animal experimentation. Concern over the welfare of laboratory animals is also not new, as reflected in the activities of various animal welfare and antivivisectionist groups dating ba
Stowaways
Stowaways
Stowaways Stowaways have been a problem to shipowners for about as long as there have been ships in the sea. In the early days of sailing ships and looser maritime legislation, this was a relatively minor problem. This probably had to due with the fact that the ships were smaller in comparison to today's standards, and were comparatively heavily crewed. Thus the chances for a stowaway to get on board and go undiscovered for any length of time were fairly small. Also in that age, the concept of

The O. J. Simpson double murder trial is perhaps the most publicized case this decade. However, before the police can arrest Simpson and prosecute him, they must investigate. The investigation techniques LAPD used are used all over the world. CRIME SCENE Patrol officers received a disturbance call at Nicole Simpson’s residence. They arrived on scene and discovered two bodies. They looked around to see if the suspect is anywhere around then they checked to determine the two subjects were dead. T

Over 260 million people worldwide use cannabis for it’s potential advantages. Those who don’t use it are the ones who are missing out. In 1973, the drug was banned from use in Britain, much to the dismay of its users. For thirty years, people have fought for the right to use it both as a clinical and a legal d

Globalisation
Globalisation The term “globalisation” has been an open and broad topic of debate in particularly today’s modern society. The term globalisation means, the process to which countries intervene with others providing money for either goods or services. But the word has been captured by many multinational corporations, and using it to their advantage. Many activists claim that this is hurting other developing countries, who are being exploited by. However, if one is aware of the good that comes out

The Status of Women in India November 28, 2000English 101 The Status of Women in India With a population of over one billion, India is the world first most populous country. Of that astronomical number, 200 million are women who live in poverty (Vinayak 11). The origin of the Indian belief of appropriate Indian female behavior can be traced to the rules laid down by a young girl, by a young woman, or even by an aged one. They believe in the notion that everything an Indian woman engages in must

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

As many Federal departments and agencies lurch into an era of running without funds, the leaders of both parties of Congress are spending less and less time searching for a compromise to balance the budget, and more and more time deciding how to use it to their advantage on the campaign trail. Meanwhile money is easily borrowed to pay for government overhead. In an attempt to change this, on June 29, Congress voted in favor of HConRes67 that called for a 7 year plan to balance the Federal Budget

Marilyn was a strong willed and very unique woman, who had a lifetime full of fame ahead of her. Why would she do something so weak as to commit suicide? Or did she?

Three decades have passed since he first made the headlines, but Gein is still with us, in spirit. His crimes inspired the movie Psycho and its sequels, spinning off in later years to terrify another generation as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. (The latter film, billed as a true story, changed literally everything except the grim decor of Gein's peculiar residence.) While other slayers

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.).
