  • Gene Therapy - 659 words
    Gene therapy is the use of genes and the techniques of genetic engineering in the treatment of a genetic disorder or chronic disease. Most of the techniques are still being experimented and are awaiting government approval (Concise Columbia Electronics Encyclopedia). Some 2000 to 3000 diseases have been determined as genetic or hereditary (Access Excellence). With the perfection of gene therapy thousands of lives could be spared. Gene therapy may eventually provide effective treatment for many diseases that currently have no cure: muscular dystrophy, diabetes, cancer, and even acquired immune deficiency (AIDS) (Access Excellence). By the addition of a single gene to a number of lab mice a gr ...

  • The Selfish Gene - 1,166 words
    In the popular science book, The Selfish Gene, Richard Dawkins explains his theory of evolution, and its occurrence for the good of the gene rather than the good of the species or individual. Dawkins believes the gene to be practically immortal, carrying on generation upon generation. By calling them selfish Dawkins describes a genes strategy of competition for survival, its tendency to behave in a manor suited to ensure its propagation. Genes are competing directly with their alleles for survival, since alleles are rivals for their slot on the chromosome of future generations.(P.36) Dawkins work is written exceptionally well, and easily comprehendible with his use of metaphors. Significant ...

  • Gene Technology - 570 words
    Firstly I would like to say that gene technology is ethically wrong and certain laws should be made against it. With the use of gene technology, genetically modified food has been grown. This is not natural; its like adding something artificial into our once naturally grown crops. Medical tissue engineering is of recent research, and is appalling to see that this is being encouraged in the media because this is not a natural food source, it was been manipulated and modified. The aspect of gene technology that I most highly disagree with is cloning. Cloning is unnatural and should not be researched about because the research could be more harmful than beneficial. Why do we need genetically mo ...

  • Cohesion With Contrast - Gene Vs. Finny - 389 words
    Although a friendship often implies many similarities, Gene and Finny also appear very different in many aspects of life. Their friendship gives the impression that at some times it was unstable, but overall it was bound to be everlasting. This companionship is a primary example of any real-life friendship of the common person. It is possible to portray many differences within a friendship, but still hold on to whatever is the quintessence of the cohesion between the parties involved. The similarities in a friendship are the elements that keep them alive and well. Gene and Finny both seem to know how to keep a secret. This is shown when Finny breaks the swimming record at Devon school and te ...

  • Green Gene - 1,771 words
    A Separate Peace by John Knowles recounts the friendship between two friends, Gene and Finny, during the year before they turn 18 and join World War II. It begins fifteen years in the future with Gene returning to his Alma Mata and remembering the drama and growth of his last year at Devon. Gene was rather naive and shy, concerned more with his academics. Gene was also very doubting and insecure about his own abilities. Phineas, or Finny was confident, the athlete and ringleader. Liked by all, he always had a crazy plan brewing in his mind. Daring and brave, his entire objective was to enjoy life. Finny persuades Gene to be bolder and more spontaneous, yet when Finny was not around Gene lost ...

  • Competition Between Gene And Phineas - 1,368 words
    Often times between both the best of friends and the bitterest of enemies there is competition. It can be a friendly competition over some minor event or goal, or a ruthless quest between two rivals who will stop at nothing to be first to reach the pinnacle. In A Separate Peace by John Knowles, Gene finds himself in a self-created competition with both himself and Phineas. Gene first is in competition with his own emotions and his loathing of Finny which conflicts with his friendship with Finny. Gene also is attempting to attain the position of Valedictorian and in his mind if he reaches this goal he would be not only Finnys equal but actually better than him. The toughest of all for Gene, i ...

  • Study On Human Gene Therapy - 777 words
    In 1990, a three-year-old Cleveland, Ohio, girl named Ashanthi DeSilva made history when doctors infused her with genes to produce an infection-fighting enzyme called ADA that she lacked. A decade later, the ashes of Jesse Gelsinger were scattered on an Arizona mountaintop after the 18-year-old died of respiratory distress -- essentially, his lungs shut down -- after getting a massive dose of a modified cold virus intended to carry a gene to his cells. Somewhere in between, the promise of gene therapy has fallen short. "This severe death in a relatively healthy individual makes us say that we have a lot more to learn," says Philip Marsden, an associate medical professor at the University of ...

  • None Provided - 1,398 words
    ... lled a master of the history of brain science since the 1800s. A little after his time, a Vietnamese physician named Fransod believed he could localize distinctions of character in areas in the brain, if fact in very small and accurate areas in the brain. He believed that if there was a certain trait that you were good at, you would get a lump of some sort that had enlarged that part of your brain. Many people believed that, and soon there were cartoons drawn of people with huge lumps in certain areas of the brain. As many followers as he may have had, he also had critics. One of those, a certain Pier Florence, didn't at all believe that any higher function could be localized on the cort ...

  • Multiregionalism Vs Out Of Africa - 1,033 words
    Anthropologists today are debating two sides to the story of the evolution of the modern human Homosapian sapian. The sides agree on two different theories called the Out of Africa theory and the Multiregional (or Candelabra) theory. The debate, which some may call a slanderous argument, is far from being resolved on either side. Both evolutionist sides have strong evidence, however, this evidence does have its flaws and is not accurate enough to prove one side over another. However, the arguments for the Out of Africa theory seem to be flawed far more than those of the Multiregional theory. The Multiregional theory states that the hominid H. erectus. Migrated out of Africa through the north ...

  • Dorothy - 593 words
    Dorothy Jean Dandridge was born on November 9,1922, in Cleveland, Ohio. Her parents (Cyril and Ruby Dandridge) had a troubled marriage, which eventually lead to them going their separate ways. Ruby met the new "love" of her life, a woman, later was much despised by Dottie. She was very domineering and abusive toward Ruby's two children, especially Dottie. Early in their youth Ruby and her friend trained them for performing onstage.

    ... for a peeping Tom killer in his forties (the age of the murderer in Bloch's novel), the director proposed using a much younger character and even suggested to the writer that Perkins get the lead role(Rebello 111). When Hitchcock began production on PSYCHO, he was told that he would have to use the facilities at Revue Studios, the television division of Universal Studios, which Paramount had rented for the making of the film(Rebello 112). Although he was unable to use his regular cinematographer, Robert Burks, Hitchcock managed to convince Paramount that his special editor, George Tomasini, should be included in the production(Rebello 110). The director's desire for detail was in full f ...

  • A Separate Peace - 1,289 words
    ... and three acquaintances come into Gene and Finny's dorm and pull them out. After they entered the Assembly Room, Brinker remarks, "You see how Finny limps." This phrase was the beginning of his plan to set the truth loose, or primarily break the friendship link between Finny and Gene. Brinker chose the Assembly Room as the setting for this trial since there is nothing humorous about the place. It is a place which would be terrible for Gene's sake to talk about the cause of the accident. The second support is Brinker's remark in consociation to the accident. He says to Gene, "There is a war on, here's one soldier our side has already lost. We've got to find out what happened." A powerful ...

  • Its All In The Family - 1,017 words
    A part of family structure is family dynamics, which together create a family unit. Family, by dictionary definition, means the parents and children alone; the children as distinguished from the parents. This reveals how the relationships within the family are important. It is the Parents and Children alone and how they interact that can exhibit a family tie. When a parent and child connect, it starts a thread in the bracelet of that certain family, and, depending on how many bonds there are in the family, shows how tightly woven that bracelet is. The bonds hold the family together. The novel, Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, illustrates a family in which the members tend to have small b ...

  • The Wild - 1,278 words
    The text on the dust jacket of Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild makes it clear that the thread of suspense running through this compelling book isn't necessarily tied to the fate of its subject. "In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley," the jacket reads. "His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter." With the demise of McCandless already revealed, Krakauer concentrates on the fo ...

  • Internet History - 1,147 words
    volution is the cornerstone of modern biology. It unites all the fields of biology under one theoretical umbrella. It is not a difficult concept, but very few people -- the majority of biologists included -- have a satisfactory grasp of it. One common mistake is believing that species can be arranged on an evolutionary ladder from bacteria through "lower" animals, to "higher" animals and, finally, up to man. Mistakes permeate popular science expositions of evolutionary biology. Mistakes even filter into biology journals and texts. For example, Lodish, et. al., in their cell biology text, proclaim, "It was Charles Darwin's great insight that organisms are all related in a great chain of being ...

  • The Battle In Seattle - 1,522 words
    The last time the World Trade Organization had a major meeting, it was in Singapore, and now we know why. Singapore, of course, is the city-state that accords near-perfect freedom to banks and corporations while jailing political activists and caning messy tenants and people who chew gum in public. When WTO ministers gathered in Singapore in 1997, their business was unimpeded by any outside agitators. (Or, for that matter, any internal dissidents: Advocates for worker rights or environmental standards are not allowed into the deliberations that set the rules for global commerce.) That Seattle wasn't going to be another Singapore was never in question. On Tuesday, though, Seattle wasn't even ...

Other eastern states also had movements against the amendment, but they eventually ratified it as well. Wyomings ratification on February 3, 1913, gave Congress the three-quarters majority it needed to make the amendment part of the U.S. Constitution. Congress now had the ability of the federal government to levy taxes on income. Six other states eventually ratified the amendment, bringing the total to forty-two. Only Connecticut, Florida, Rhode Island, and Utah failed in its attempts to ratify the amendment. Pennsylvania and Virginia never attempted to ratify. The ...
