Surely we have all heard the expression Im only human. If we are indeed only human, and consequently prone to error, we could never perfectly manage and contain an energy as potentially destructive as that of nuclear power, without the possibility of a nuclear accident. Furthermore, the wastes generated by nuclear power, when inadvertently released during a nuclear power accident, have been proven to cause malignant diseases and premature death to those who come into contact with them.

In the Book The Jungle by Upton Sinclair the extreme horrors of the meat packing industry in the 1900s were exposed to all. He vividly displayed the hardships that new immigrants had faced upon their arrival to this great nation.

The book goes through the life a Lithuanian family that just moved to America in pursuit of wealth and prosperity. They had no idea what was about to become of them. The story opens with the feast at Jurgis and Onas wedding in America, but soon flashes back to the time before they left Lithuania. Unfortunately, they we ...

A statistic that combats this concern is that 47% of the population in Ireland is between the ages of 15 and 44. An overlapping figure, also, is that Ireland has the youngest population in Europe, with over 40% under the age of 25 years. There should not be much of a big worry as far as the future exchange rate of the Irish Punt. In general it should stay relatively stable with some slight everyday volatility overall. One thing someone may be cautious of is in the near future with regards to the exchange rate. ...

Daley in Seattle, and the blue meanies of the Chicago police -- who happily walloped passers-by in their pursuit of demonstrators -- have been supplanted here by a force that hasn't walloped even violent demonstrators for fear of offending the peaceful ones. In all the news coverage on Seattle TV Tuesday night, there was just one shot of a gun being pulled -- not by a cop or a demonstrator, but by a WTO delegate frustrated by his inability to get to the hall. One of the dignitaries who couldn't get into the WTO's opening ceremonies was the featured speaker -- Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. It was the second of two disasters to bef ...

The Consumer Confidence Index is an important economic indicator because it measures the level of confidence in the American consumer in each household. However, these surveys might not be reliable because times and situations of the American consumer can change dramatically. If consumers are concerned about job security, economic conditions, or personal finances, they are prone to spend less and this can cause disinflation and even deflation. Alternatively, if consumers have a good feeling about the economy, the opposite effect will occur. The Un ...

If the banks of Japan were able to persuade the person in charge they then would have the ability to change the rules of the game in which they play, and without a doubt these adjustments would work in their favor. This type of scandalous action would not only create an unleveled playing field but eliminated the Japanese method of monitoring and obtaining information about the validity and integrity of Japanese banking policies. The only answer to the problem would be to eliminate the Mof-tan and create a new way to gather information about ...

Mr. McChoakumchild, who is brilliantly named (choak-um-child), is not seen in action but we get a good description of him. He is supposed to represent the ordinary teacher who had gone of to school and been stuffed with facts of all kinds but never asked to really think about them, only regurgitate the information. We see no signs of actual humanity in this man; he is the model teacher for Utilitarianism, and, in fact, we get the idea that if he werent as learned as he was that he may actually have some humanity. Next, we see Tom Gradgrinds own children Louisa ...
