Genetically Engineered Food
Genetically Engineered Food Haronamas Walton Millions of people all over the planet suffer from poverty and starvation. One very interesting but experimental solution to the problem of world hunger is genetically engineered food. The process involves the crossbreeding of crops in a laboratory with species that are not plant like. Say for example, that a scientist crossed a fish and a potato. The diversity of this gene mixture is supposed to give this hybrid crop special characteristics like resi
Water Pollution
Water Pollution
Water Pollution Brian Donner Water pollution needs to be stopped. Pollution of lakes rivers, streams, and oceans has been killing land and water animals for years. Polluting water is a horrible act and will be stopped. Water pollution kills all kinds of animals every year. Just the EXXON VALDEZ oil spill near anchorage Alaska caused over 3,000 otters to die 36,000 different kinds of seabirds were killed and over 100 eagles. - Oil spills are one of--if not the worst types of pollution. They happe
Animal Rights
Animal Rights
Animal Rights Dev One of the most touchy aspects of our relationship with animals is the use of animals in laboratory sciences. Some manufactures of cosmetics and household products still conduct painful and useless tests on live animals, even though no law requires them to do so. Some people, called anti-vivisectionists, are at one extreme in their concern. They want an abolition of all experiments on live animals. At the other extreme there are those who say that it is quite all right for us t

This quest for the truth, the ways in which his surrounding works, has led to many a scientific discoveries and innovations. Since the art of making fire and creating handcrafted tools, our civilization has come a long way. Science and Technology are making advances at an amazing rate. From telephones to the Internet, calculators to

Rave Culture: The Number One Example Of Social Deviance
Rave Culture: The Number One Example of Social Deviance Anonymous Introduction What is a rave? This is a fundamental question that, in a way, I will attempt to answer in this paper, but I will never do it. Raving is a highly subjective experience. One person's best rave is another person's worst. Any attempt to analyze rave culture must recognize the highly personal factor of the experience. It is because of this fact that I start off my attempt to analyze rave culture with a series of quotes on
Acid Rain
Acid Rain
Acid Rain Unknown Introduction Acid rain has become an environmental concern of global importance within the last decade. With the increasing environmental awareness of the unhealthy condition of our planet earth the concern about acid rain has not lessened. In brief, acid rain is rain with pH values of less than 5.6. When dealing with acid rain one must study and understand the process of making Sulfuric acid. In this project we will take an in depth look into the production of sulfuric acid,
Leaf-cutting Ants
Leaf-cutting Ants
Leaf-cutting Ants Unknown One of the most little known species of ants in North America is the leaf-cutter ant. This is mainly because it lives in tropical environments and it is not aggressive to animals or humans if not disturbed. The leaf cutting ant is a social insect. Alone the ant is virtually helpless but with the colony it can be a thing feared by animal and human alike. The leaf-cutting ants have a very important role in the tropical forest. They create and manipulate the environment ar
Global Warming
Global Warming
Today, global warming is an undeniable fact, which proves that our planet and its climate are in trouble. Global warming affects all areas of our life: politics, economics and a social sphere. The study of global warming involves many sciences in order to examine the causes of global warming and try to find possible solutions to reduce the impact of our civilization on the planet. An interdisciplinary research in this field is important, because global warming is caused by many factors and has a

Animals Used for Experimentation 1. More than 100 million animals every year suffer and die in cruel chemical, drug, food and cosmetic tests, biology lessons, medical training exercises, and curiosity-driven medical experiments. Exact numbers aren't available because mice, rats, birds and cold-blooded animals?who make up more than 95 percent of animals used in experiments?are not covered by even the minimal protections of the Animal Welfare Act and therefore go uncounted. To test cosmetics, hous
Eating meat is ethical
Eating meat is ethical
To Eat Meat or Not to Eat Meat, That is the Question A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise. -Aldo Leopold In the grasslands of Africa a lion topples a giraffe, in the cold Arctic Circle a polar bear captures a seal, a newborn fawn falls prey to a hungry wolf, and nobody objects. Yet the act of eating meat is still a major topic of ethical reasoning today. Ethical eaters argue that it?s wrong f

Green Revolution
Green Revolution: The Beginning With the rapid growth of our global population pouring into the next millennium, we will witness an ever-growing hunger rate around the world. That is unless we call for a revolution on the global scale. The Green Revolution which already sprouted in the early part of the century only need to add a bit more momentum and we will see a bright future for the human race, a future without hunger and starvation hopefully. It is becoming increasingly difficult for the p

Genetic modified food Should there be limits to genetic modification of food? Should there be limits to genetic modification of food? It may seem very attractive to be able to genetically modify crops, but at what cost? Giant transnational companies are carrying out a dangerous global experiment by introducing large numbers of genetically engineered food into our diet. Genetic manipulations can result in unanticipated harmful effects, and because genetically engineered foods are not tested suffi

Study of a 3rd World Country Ethiopia
this is it PHYSICAL: Relief: Ethiopia consists mainly of Desert and Mountains. Many valleys and plateau¹s also can be found in the country. Due to these landform types the percentage of farm land is approximately 5.7% of the total amount of land in Ethiopia. The amount of arable land is 10% of the 5.7% total. Ethiopia has an area of 1 221 900 sq. km. Ethiopia does not receive any problems such as volcanism, tidal waves, etc., but it does receive great winds and monsoons. It is located in Easter

Genetically Modified Organisms Martin Lopez Freshman Composition 1 Dr. Dorothy Simpson April 16th, 2015 Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. GMO’s main purpose is to withstand the direct application of herbicide and or to produce an insecticide. Most nations in the world consider GMOs to be not safe to either those who eat them or to the environment in which they are plante

The Importance of Bees Martin Lopez Freshman Composition 1 Dr. Dorothy Simpson February 2nd, 2015 Bees are one of the world’s main pollinators. They play a significant role in the production of more than one hundred food crops in the United States, from almonds, apples and alfalfa, to melons, plums, and squash. Almost all fruit and grain crops require pollination to produce their crop. Declines in pollinator activity could have serious economic repercussions throughout the United States. The Un
