GENETIC ENGINEERRING If I could genetically engineer my child I would do not do it. I believe the way things are naturally meant to be should not be altered by human science. A child who was genetically engineer to my opinion would not a have “soul” or his or her life would be pre-determined without any surprises that come as one grows. A genetically engineered child would definitely live forever thinking about the fact that he is not like the rest. Giving birth to a naturally conceived child is

CANADA - OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA The Canadian identity has always been difficult to define. We, as Canadians, have continued to define ourselves by reference to what we are not - American - rather than in terms of our own national history and tradition.

Culturally Canada has its own distinct government and institutions which differ and are better from t

Geography Colorado River Geographers can tell you that the one thing that most rivers and their adjacent flood plains in the world have in common is that they have rich histories associated with human settlement and development.
