Sexual Orientation - 1,390 words
Sexual orientation has been and to some degree is still seen as a taboo topic. For many years it has been argued that sexual orientation is based on one's gender and one's sexual preference, should be based on one's sex (i.e. females should be attracted to males and males to females). For generations, these narrow views were considered to be the norm. However, hidden within society was a lifestyle that once aired was seen as deviant. Homosexuality and many sexual orientations were seen as sexual deviancy that needed some type of treatment to cure. Many people use the term sexual preference to describe someone's sexual orientation, such as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, etc. Heterosexual ...

... 3, the American Psychiatric Association classified homosexuality as sexual deviation along with other disorders such as fetishism and pedophilia (Zuriff. 1997, p. 2). Mental health professionals were classifying homosexuals as mentally ill because most of the research that was done involved lesbian and gay men in therapy. The research was biased because the research never included lesbian and gay men that were not in therapy. However, as Zuriff points out (1997), when the non-patient homosexual population was studied, researchers found that many homosexuals were leading well adjusted, fulfilling lives (p. 4). It was then concluded that homosexuality was not linked with incidence of psych ...

... religious goal over 2,000 years ago in the Christian Scriptures. Bergman states, "Incidentally, the source of the belief in the equality of man is the Bible, few ancient books espouse this concept, and it is foreign to most non-Christian peoples (6)." Since these concepts are biblical in origin, why are the students not told this? What about the fact that abortion, homosexuality and fornication are talked about in school, but teachers are not allowed to discuss the religious side of the issue, only the side deemed non-religious? Though the public schools are teaching a type of religion, obviously, the students are not informed about it; in fact, the topic of religion is not deemed import ...

Metabolic Muscular And Nervous Systems - 1,731 words
The immediate source of energy for muscular contraction is the high-energy phosphate compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Although ATP is not the only energy-carrying molecule in the cell, it is the most important one, and without sufficient amounts of ATP most cells die quickly. The three main parts of an ATP molecule are: an adenine portion, a ribose portion, and three phosphates linked together. The formation of ATP occurs by combining adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and inorganic phosphate (Pi). This formation requires a large amount of energy to and it is called a high-energy bond. In order for a muscle to contract, the enzyme ATPase breaks the ATP bond and releases energy which is ...

... ws the cross-bridge to detach and re-attach to another active site on an actin molecule. This contraction cycle is repeated as long as free calcium is available to bind the troponin and ATP is available to provide the energy. The signal to stop contraction is the absence of the nerve impulse at the neuromuscular junction. When this occurs, an energy requiring calcium pump located within the sarcoplasmic reticulum begins to move the calcium back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum. This removal of calcium from troponin causes tropomyosin to move back to cover the binding sites on the actin molecule and cross-bridge interaction ceases. It is possible for skeletal muscle to exert force without ...

Mc Escher - 1,051 words
Though M.C. Escher contended that he knew virtually nothing about mathematics, even having gone as far as to declare that he was absolutely innocent of training or knowledge in the exact sciences, (Schattschneider 67), his art work commonly incorporates the use of many recognized elements of science and mathematics. It has been argued that Eschers natural accessibility and his popularity with young art patrons is due to the Eschers use of symmetry, his use of metamorphosis, and his focus on representational elements of science in his work (Donato 31). Though Escher appeared unwilling to address it during his lifetime, it was evident that his work was supported by elements of science, includi ...

Gain Sharing - 996 words
Employers are often faced with the challenge of looking for ways to boost productivity and profitability while at the same time, motivating employees to accomplish organizational goals. For many employers, variable pay plans have risen to meet this challenge. A variable pay plan ties pay increases to increased performance and productivity. One of the more popular group variable pay plans is called gain sharing. Under gain sharing pay programs, both the employer and the employee benefit from increased productivity. Therefore, gain sharing has often been referred to as a win-win pay program since it is an incentive strategy that ties pay to productivity. Gain sharing is a type of incentive pla ...

Moreover, it was the practice of many retailers to sell newly stocked programs for fully set price only for 30 to 60 days, after which they were sold at a discount. With retailers holding excess inventory, it was not uncommon to see titles that originally listed for $60 discounted to the $15 to $20 range. DFC Intelligence Research identified that retailers were most concerned with the difficulty of deciding what to buy and heavy price discounting due to increased competition.
