Women In Advertising - 1,221 words
... d stereotype in society around women that preys on the human fear of the unknown. This only hinders the female's struggle for equality. The final concept that I observed was that of tokenism. The working women of the 90's is becoming more and more accepted , but advertisements still cannot seem to divorce themselves from the concept that the work place is just another medium in which their consumers can display themselves. They feel obligated to include the token women in work place environments who seem to enjoy modeling the latest style of working clothes, like one ad I saw which was selling the great little office dress. Little being the operative word in that sentence. They promote t ...

Big Oil And Bus Ethics - 1,760 words
It can be argued (convincingly) that human's usage of fossil fuels is responsible for a large part of the world's pollution problems. The area that I will discuss is the interaction that the big oil companies have had with the environment surrounding their businesses in Alaska. I will not tackle the issue of whether it is right or wrong to extract or use fossil fuels. Instead, I will ignore the larger issue and concentrate on specific issues concerning the Arctic Slope activities of oil companies in Alaska. Because the North Slope oil fields are on American soil, the regulation of the industrial activities is far more stringent than other areas in the world. If we compared the North Slope oi ...

Asbestoswhats This Stuff - 1,330 words
Six months ago, my husband and I purchased a small piece of property in Manhattan, Kansas to start our own computer repair business. The property was in desperate need of remodeling, but we needed to keep expenses to a minimium in order to make any profit.

Dancing With Anorexia - 773 words
September 5, 2000 Writing from Recall (final draft) As a young girl, nothing made me feel more grown-up than getting ready for holidays with my mom and her sisters. The women on my moms side of the family gathered in a spare bedroom of my grandparents home and prepared themselves for the festivities. The excitement was exhilarating and I felt special to be included in this sacred ritual at such a tender age. Make-up cluttered the vanity, countless articles of clothing, pairs of pantyhose, socks, and shoes littered the bedroom floor, and the noise from the constant conversations was deafening. As much fun as we had during those times, the core of these memories for me is the focus that was pl ...

Studies find that TCDD elicits a diverse spectrum of biological sex, strain, age, and species-specific effects; including carcinogenicity, immunotoxicity, reproductive/developmental toxicity, hepatotoxicity, neurotoxicity, chloracne, and loss of body weight. These effects vary according to the age, sex, species, and strain of the animals involved. To date, the scientific consensus is that TCDD is not genotoxic and that its ability to influence the carcinogenic process is mediated via epigenetic events such as enzyme induction, cell proliferation, apoptosis, and intracellular communication.

Still, there are 43 million people without health insurance, 10 million of which are children. Children and adults in non-western countries enjoy a national health program where everyone is covered by the government. However the quality of healthcare ...
