  • Shrinking Buying Power Of The Middle Class - 1,654 words
    The Shrinking Buying Power of the Middle Class According to the Merriam-Websters Online Dictionary, the middle class is a class occupying a position between the upper class and the lower class; especially: a fluid heterogeneous socioeconomic grouping composed principally of business and professional people, bureaucrats, and some farmers and skilled workers sharing common social characteristics and values (Merriam-Webster).

  • Argument - 1,108 words
    Annual Driving Tests for Senior Citizens One problem when driving on the roads is when a person runs across another person who should not be driving a car. Quite often, the person that should not be driving is an older person. The problem occurs when the older people can not handle the car that he or she is driving. Statistics have shown that older are involved in a high percentage of wrecks when compared to other age groups. I feel that an annual driving test should be required for everyone once he or she reaches a certain age. Many people may say that the age chosen is arbitrary. I feel that once a person is old enough to retire, he or she should be required to take an annual driving test. ...

  • Peoples Of Alaska And Their Eskimo Culture - 4,810 words
    Alaska is still the last frontier in the minds of many Americans. Interest in the "Great Land" has increased sharply since Alaska The Native became a full fledged state in January o f 1959. In spite of this great interest, many Americans know very little of the Eskimos, Indians and Aleuts (Al-ee-oots) who live in the remote regions. At the time Alaska was discovered in 1741 by Vitus Bering, Alaska Natives populated all parts of Alaska including the Bering Strait Region. Although there is still some disagreement among anthropologists concerning the origin of the American Indians and Eskimos, the great majority believe that these people migrated across the Bering Strait from Asia. Apparently t ...

From his point of view an Assembly of Cultures can play a decisive role in the emergence of a genuine European conscience, which would constitute the best defense of its people and of the community. The European Union has not taken the responsibility of guarding Europeans Culture, to protect a human being, his heritage, his rights, and his creativity. Another point of view is to achieve a European Union beyond the economic level, without becoming victims of their own success, European nations have to step back from the idea of nation and start working toward a plural and cultural c ...

  • Fundamentals Of Fitness - 787 words
    When we first took this class I thought I knew all I needed to know about physical education. We learned that fitness is the ability to carry out daily activities with vigor and alertness with out fatigue. When I learned this I thought everyone is fit. I started to realize that older people have difficulty going up and down stairs and other activities that should be easy. As they got older they did not keep fit and started to become unhealthy. If you are physically fit then you will stay healthy, look good, live longer, have more energy, and this will reduce the risk of heart disease. We also learned about the FITT principle. The F stands for frequency, which is how many times you do the act ...

  • Multiple Causation Theory Of Leukemia - 1,920 words
    Leukemia is a malignant disease of the bone marrow and blood. It is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of blood cells. The term leukemia has a Latin derivation. Leuko means white and heme is blood. Therefore the word leukemia literally means white blood.

Thus, the four major types of leukemia are acute or chronic myelogenous leukemia and acute or chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Acute leukemia involves the most primitive types of leukemia cells. It is a rapidly progressing disease that results in the accumulation of immature cells in the marrow ...

  • Stress In College Students - 1,395 words

  • Mental Illness - 1,137 words
    The name of my book is Mental Illness by Gilda Berger. Mental illness is a disorder characterized by disturbances in a persons thoughts, emotions, or behavior. The term mental illness can refer to a wide variety of disorders, ranging from those that cause mild distress to those that severely impair a persons ability to function. Today, mental illness is considered to range from such ideas as eating disorders to personality disorders. Mental illnesses have been reported as far back as to 4000-5000 years ago. The reason scientists believe that mental illness has existed this long is due to anthropologists finding skulls with holes gashed in them. These skulls look very similar to skulls that h ...

The thigh has more exposed nerves and veins than the backside. Place a cotton ball over the injection site if the oil based steroid dribbles out a little bit - this suggests the injection wasn't deep enough into the muscle.

  • Ulcers - 1,963 words
    Millions of people around the world suffer from ulcers. An ulcer is a sore or hole in the lining of the stomach or duodenum (the first part of the small intestine). People of any age can get an ulcer and women are affected just as often as men. With stomach ulcers, H. pylori infection is found in 60 to 80 percent of the cases. Again, it is still uncertain how the infection acts to cause the ulcer. It probably weakens the protective mucous layer of the stomach. This allows acid to seep in and injure the underlying stomach cells. However, there is still a great deal of research to be done to unravel this relationship. In times past, physicians were taught "no acid, no ulcer." The medical profe ...

  • Bias - 878 words
    People read articles everyday, but they do not recognize that bias is being used to alternate their opinion. Readers are easily blinded by bias within print media because journalists are very good with blending the bias into their articles.

Print media uses certain types of bias that can persuade a person into reading the article that may not concern them. There are many types of bias that are used in print media health issue articles. Print media shows bias through statistics and crowd counts, word choice and tone, and omission. Bias by statistics and crowd count is used in print media. Journalists ten ...

  • Should The Drivers License Age Be Raised - 1,029 words
    Should the age to receive a driver's license be raised and, if not, should graduated licensing be instituted? This is a growing question across America as well as other countries around our globe. The percentage of teenage accidents involving automobiles is on a constant rise. Whether caused by the lack of experience or under the influence of alcohol, death has become all too common among teen motorists. This problem is not going to go away by itself; action needs to be taken. The state must raise the age requirement to receive a license or institute graduated licensing because teens are not mature enough to handle the dangerous responsibilities of driving. We allow teens to get their licens ...
