The legalization of marijuana is a large controversy in many parts of the world today, but the obvious negative effects that the drug induces has kept it from being legalized.

The election of the Regan-Bush Republican ticket of 1984 brought many unprecedented and controversial policies to the US economy. Many of these policies,including Reganomics still affect our economy as a whole and are still major points of debates today. Reganomics was not solely based on economics, but rather the included a sense of having moral foundations. Government intervention and regulation of the economy were seen as economically harmful and furthermore morally wrong. It was believed that economic affairs should be left to the wisdom of God and his guidance would produce a successful market and economy.

The mission of public schooling is to offer every child full and equal educational opportunity, regardless of the background, education, and income of his/her parent(s). To achieve this goal, no time is as precious or as fleeting as the first years of formal schooling. Research consistently shows that children who get off to a good start in reading rarely stumble. Those who fall behind tend to stay behind for the rest of their academic lives. Good teaching and a good classroom reading program can bring most students up to or near a grade level during the primary grades. But sustaining this accomplishment is difficult when a large percentage of a schools students are failing (Preventing Readi ...

Landfills - 1,511 words
When asked to think of the largest man made structure, people will invariably come up with an answer like The Great Wall of China, the Great Pyramids, or the Taj Majal. In contrast to these striking achievements of mankind is the Durham Road Landfill outside San Francisco, which occupies over seventy million cubic feet. It is a sad monument to the excesses of modern society [Gore 151]. One must think this huge reservoir of garbage must be the largest thing ever produced by human hands then. Unhappily, this is not the case. The Fresh Kills Landfill, located on Staten Island, is the largest landfill in the world. It sports an elevation of 155 feet, an estimated mass of 100 million tons, and a ...

Is small healthy? Or did Seckler quite early in his research? Both of these questions arose to me after reading the two articles: Malnutrition: An Intellectual Odyssey by David Seckler and Small but Healthy by Gretel H Pelto and Pertti J. Pelto. In the next couple of pages I hope to compare and contrast these two articles by examining both hypothesis by each. Then, Im going to give my opinion on the subject. To start out I would like to briefly explain Secklers hypothesis. He gives the Idea, which goes against nutritionists assumption about malnutrition, that people who are short in stature do to mild to moderate malnutrition are in fact healthy and well adapted to the amount of nutrition he ...

The Side Effects Of Breast Implants - 464 words
In the 1970s women began to look for different options other than padding their bra to get a more voluptuous look. The 70s were an age of a new form of cosmetic surgery called breast implants.

The scientific advances of the seventeenth century challenged traditional concepts of God and the universe, leaving a profound effect on the rest of western civilization. Revolutionary thinkers such as Aristotle, Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, Galilei, and Newton through their discoveries, transformed the way of thinking of an entire culture. As the people of the day searched for more logical explanations for the events they saw, Copernicus and others sought out the answers through science. A combination of factors such as the Renaissance, Reformation, the Age of Exploration and the spirit of capitalism all helped produce this intellectual change; a change in which we see in our everyday lives. ...

Legalization Of Marijuana - 1,564 words
When Olympic officials decided to give snowboarder Ross Rebagliati his gold medal back, the cheers drowned out the boos. It was a minor scandal involving a minor sport, but it spoke volumes about the world's shifting relationship with its favorite illicit drug. Marijuana. A decade ago, Rebagliati would have been ostracized regardless of whether cannabis was on the list of his sport's banned substances. What's changed today is that our attitudes towards illegal drugs are becoming more sophisticated and discriminating. After thirty years of research into the harmful effects of cannabis, there can be no hidden dangers left to discover. We know that it is plain nonsense to regard cannabis as a p ...

The Misdiagnosis Of Add - 647 words
The Misdiagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder ADD is a disorder that is very challenging to diagnose because the symptoms can be varying in number and intensity can show a positive diagnosis. Even the official scale of DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders); created and updated by the American Medical Association; can be questioned for validity. In the past ten years there have been many studies done on the problems of over-diagnosis and over-prescription.

The Fight For Creatine - 1,254 words
Creatine is an amino acid that is produced in the pancreas, liver, and kidneys. The natural creatine that is produced in the body replenishes adenosine triphosphate, which fuels muscle use. Creatine helps to add in extra repetitions during a lifting program. When adding in extra repetitions there are better chances of building muscle bulk. Many people feel creatine should be banned just like anabolic steroids because of long-term side effects. However, creatine is not as dangerous as some think and it should not be banned. Creatine is not only produced naturally but can also be bought as a supplement. Whether you buy it in powder or pill form it seems to have the same effect. Within the past ...

(Crosby & Reese 1996) A fundamental question that one asks when using Chaetodontidae, or for that reason any species as biomonitors is: why use an organism when sophisticated machines are available to detect very small quantities of pollution in short space and time? One might think that biomonitoring has become redundant because of these machines, but the opposite is true, chemical monitoring tells us what is there, but not its effects - especially long term effects on ecosystems the ...

Some experts believe that drive and motivation are related to noradrenaline, and mood states are associated with serotonin.

This article refers mostly to the American practice, because the USA has the highest rate of non-religious circumcision and the most contentious debate about circumcision.
