The Scientific Experimentation That Destroys Beatrice In Rappacinis Daughter - 1,444 words
The Scientific Experimentation That Destroys Beatrice in Rappacinis Daughter Most parents would put their children ahead of their occupation at all costs. In many cases this is true, but for Rappacini in Nathaniel Hawthornes Rappacinis Daughter, his scientific experiments prove to be more important to him than his daughter Beatrices wellbeing. His selfishness leads to both the physical and emotional destruction of Beatrices romantic aspirations for Giovanni Guasconti. The unique situations encountered in Rappacinis Daughter, represent an emotional struggle for Beatrice, which relates to the different interpretations of scientific advancement during this Romantic Era. An important theme in Ra ...

The Effect Of The Supernatural Upon Events In Shakespeares Macbeth - 1,659 words
At the time Shakespeare wrote Macbeth, people were interested in the idea of the supernatural and the unknown. It would have been a hot conversational topic of the day in the late 16th century, with most folks being very suspicious of things of this nature. This seems to be one of the reasons why Shakespeare chose to write a play about this particular theme. Another reason would be that the playwright knew his work would be performed in front of King James; the King was of Scottish heritage and it would be pleasing to him to recognise actual place names used in the play. Scotland as a country is complimented throughout the play: This castle hath a pleasant seat. The air nimbly and sweetly re ...

Right To Choice - 852 words
Right of Choice The subject of abortion has come up time and time again. Rights to life, feel this way or that. Do my opinions about a subject as a male really concern everyone else? I am not sure how my views can change a world, but I am sure they can shed some light into the topic that is no longer taboo. I am Pro-Choice for many reasons. I believe that, since a man is a contributing factor for a woman's pregnancy, he should have some say. I do know and understand that being a man, we cannot fathom what it is like to give birth to a child. I believe it is not my place to tell woman she should or should not keep it. Although, I think sometimes there are mitigating circumstances why someone ...

Hitler - 1,090 words
Have you ever wanted to know what made Hitler go bad? Most people use the normal excuse that his childhood was the cause of all of his troubles. However, the information in this report should prove that theory wrong. He was a good student in his early school years and had dreams of becoming an artist. Adolf actually had a pretty normal childhood. On April 20, 1889, Adolf Hitler was born in the small Austrian city of Branau. His father, Alois, worked as customs official, checking goods traded between Austria and Germany. Alois was promoted which resulted in a transfer. First, to Passau and the to Linz. Adolf and the rest of the family did not follow him to Linz, but stayed in Passau. (Rubenst ...

Euthaniasia - 1,719 words
Assisted Suicide the act or practice of helping in taking the life of one who willfully wants to die. Just by definition alone it becomes painfully obvious; this is going to be a controversial subject. A term that goes hand and hand with assisted suicide, one in which I will be discussing at great length is Euthanasia. That is the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy. The term is from a Greek word meaning good death. In case those definitions didnt make it obvious enough, assisted suicide is usually done by doctors. Ive done quite extensive research on t ...

It is in reality a call for counseling, assistance, and positive alternatives as solutions for very real problems. They also argue that most that want to die are clinically depressed, and just need counseling. They are right they JUST NEED counseling. Makes it sound so easy right? The only problem is, counseling only helps people who WANT to be helped. A large group of people who are clinically depressed because of illness or emotional distraught DO NOT WANT HELP. They have made up their minds, and will not let anyone or anything change them. This usually happens to people who hav ...

Pregnant Drug Users - 1,944 words
Many of us are use to hearing about the War on Drugs or Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD), but not every day we hear about groups trying to stop mothers from killing their unborn child. The method that these mothers are using to kill or permanently hurt their unborn child is by using drugs during their pregnancy. Should these women go to jail for murdering or should they get help and pretend that nothing happened? Like every situation in our life, we must do what is right, and we must fight for what we know is right. Paul A. Logli, a prosecutor for the state of Illinois argues that it is the governments duty to enforce health of unborn fetuses, and that the mothers of these victims should ...

As this would definitely make a difference, the situation can never be completely mended because teenagers today are simply busy. And unfortunately, sleep does not fit into their schedule as they try to participate in everything possible and prepare for college or their career of choice. As they sleep five or six hours on weeknights and try to compensate with 12-hour sleep marathons on weekends, test scores drop and behavior changes.

Cancer is a group of many different diseases that have some important things in common. They all affect cells, the bodys basic unit of life. To understand different types of cancer, such as Bladder Cancer , it is helpful to know about normal cells and what happens when they become cancerous. The body is made up of many types of cells. Normally, cells grow and divide to produce more cells only when the body needs them. This orderly process helps keep the body healthy. Sometimes cells keep dividing when new cells are not needed. These cells form a mass of extra tissue, called a growth or tumor. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors are not cancer. They often can be removed ...
