Cloning: Why We Shouldnt Be Against It
Cloning: Why we shouldn't be against it Marina You have been told that you are unique. The belief that there is no one else like you in the whole world made you feel special and proud. This belief may not be true in the future. The world was stunned by the news in late February 1997 that a British embryologist named Ian Wilmut and his research team had successfully cloned a lamb named Dolly from an adult sheep. Dolly was created by replacing the DNA of one sheep's egg with the DNA of another she

The Versailles Treaty Anonymous The Treaty of Versailles was intended to be a peace agreement between the Allies and the Germans.

Progressive Historians Jake One must decide the meaning of progressive historiography. It can mean either the history written by progressive historians, or it can mean history written by historians of the Progressive era of American history and shortly after. The focus that was chosen for this paper is more in keeping with the latter interpretation, if for no other reason than it provides a useful compare-and-contrast control literature. The caveat is this: the focus of this report is on t

Through Holdens Eyes
Through Holden's Eyes Anonymous The Catcher in the Rye has truly earned it's place among great classic works. J. D. Salinger created a literary piece that was completely unique. The entire novel was written in the first person view of the 17-year-old, Holden Caulfield. The majority of the story is compiled of Holden's rudimentary monologue of 'complexly simple' thoughts, the rest utilizing his relay of previous dialogue. That and the use of unique punctuation, digressing explanations, and comple

Southern White Slaveholder Guilt
Southern White Slaveholder Guilt Joe Masters Guilt is an inevitable effect of slavery. For no matter how much rhetoric and racism is poured into such a system, the simple fact remains that men are enslaving men. Regardless of how much inferior a slaveholder may perceive his slaves, it is obvious that his property looks similar, has similar needs, and has similar feelings. There is thus the necessary comparison of situations; the slaveholder is free, the slaves in bondage - certainly a position

The Egoistic Friend What are friends for and how can a friendship be tested? By behaving altruistically, would be the most common answer and by sacrificing one's interests in favour of one's friends. Friendship implies the converse of egoism, both psychologically and ethically. But then we say that the dog is man's best friend. After all, it is characterized by unconditional love, by unselfish behaviour, by sacrifice, when necessary. Isn't this the epitome of friendship? Apparently not. On the

Jane Eyre: Sexism King Dingo In the cases of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice and Emily Bronte's Jane Eyre, the ideals of romantic love are very much the same. In both 19th century novels, women's wants and needs are rather simplified. However, this could also be said for the roles and ideals of the male characters. While it was obvious that this era was responsible for a large amount of anti-female sexism in society and the economy, can it also be said that male-female partnerships were

How could you have been so cowardly, or lazy, or stingy, as to allow you 'friend' to die? Surely, with a little courage, energy, and money, you could have saved him. Those are strong accusations coming from someone who obviously did not know Socrates as well as his other students or me.

Marx's Theory Of Money Duncan K. Foley The Theory of Money and the Theory of Value The most important point to emerge from Marx's theory of money is the idea that money is a form of value. The difficulty with this idea is that we are more familiar with money itself than with value in other forms. But value does appear in forms other than money. For example, the balance sheet of a capitalist firm estimates the value of goods in process and of fixed capital which has not yet been depreciated, as w

Effective learning in the classroom depends on the teacher?s ability to maintain the interest from the beginning. Some students will be motivated by the approval of others, some by overcoming challenges. To encourage students to become self-motivated learners, teachers can begin by making sure that students are active participants in learning. In my experience students

The foundations for becoming an effective teacher perhaps lie within professionalism and ethics. Professionalism can be divided into six distinct categories; these are academic, legal, ethical, professional, personal and cultural professionalism. According to (Whitten et al., 2010) this is a good starting point because teachers need to reflect upon what professionalism means for them and how it will affect their teaching practices. Effective leaders in school need to have insight and vision to s
