Computer Fraud - 1,478 words
As much as $40 billion are lost every year due to flourishing computer crimes. In 1993 alone, Internet, the world wide system of computer networks, was swindled out of approximately $2 billion, and about $50 million were stolen from various companies such as GTE Corp., AT&T, Bell Atlantic and MCI ( Meyer and Underwood 45). Ironically these same organizations have been collaborating with software manufacturers for an expanded software production ( Cook 53 ). Multinational corporations and international authorities are threatened by these innumerable white collar crimes since such crimes are most difficult to prevent, and/or detect and highly profitable to the offenders ( Stern and Stern 525 ) ...

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. We had two other employees besides ourselves at this time, but as business started to pick up, we had to hire five more technicians to keep up with all the orders that were coming in. Our space was getting limited and then we were left with the decision that it was now time to get ready to remodel the building. We hired our own staff to help with the remodeling, at their request for the overtime and their experience with this type of work. ...

Deciding For The Bomb - 853 words
There are many reasons that the Atomic bomb was used on Japan. There are many that criticize the bombing, but I support it. The main reasons for President Harry Truman decided to drop the bomb were, to save lives (American Lives), to bring about a quicker resolution to the war, and to send a message to the world that we now had military supremacy. Growing up in a military family, (with a dad a Vietnam vet, and a grandfather who would have fought in Japan if we had invaded), may have biased my personal opinions, but in my mind it is all a matter of numbers when it comes to war. War is a matter of how many lives each side has to waste, and who runs low first generally surrenders. War is hate b ...

Analysis Of A Firm - 2,282 words
The Twentieth Century was profoundly affected by the innovations of Henry Ford. The invention of the automobile gave opportunities to multitudes of people. These opportunities were not just in transportation, but in occupation as well. Today, no matter where a Ford is produced, the consumer knows that they are receiving a high quality product. The reason for this is that the majority of Ford vehicle parts are designed by Ford engineers, manufactured in Ford plants and assembled in Ford product lines. When you purchase a Ford product, you are truly purchasing Ford quality. Ford is the number two manufacturer of automobiles, second only to the General Motors Corporation. This paper will analyz ...

The Real Possibilities Of Cloning - 1,215 words
On February 22, 1999 news was announced that Dolly the lamb was the first successful animal cloned. Unlike the other cloning experiments done over the past 15 years, this was the first successful clone made with an adult cell. The cell was used to activate and program the egg from which Dolly grew. Past clones involved using the cell from a fertilized embryo in the early stages of development. As news of Ian Willmut's cloned lamb got out across the globe, many people feared what they thought could possibly never come true. With the technology to clone identical animals, can humans be cloned too? Since then topic of discussion throughout the scientific world has centered on the cloning of hum ...

The fifth myth is the minority candidates wait longer owing to bias in the system. In fact, no consideration is given to race, only to medical facts. In many transplants the necessary matching antigens are more likely to occur between people of similar race or ethnicity. Blacks are one of the lowest groups to give to organ donation. All other organs can be shared between people of different race, ethnicity or gender (Adato). The sixth myth is that religion prohibits organ sharing. In fact, only Orthodox Judaism opposed organ donation; and now attitude ...

Matthew Fox is the president of the University of Creation Spirituality and co-director of the Naropa Institute's program in creation spirituality. Fox states his distorted views of what the world is coming to in an article called Kosovo, Columbine, and Evil. These are the views of a radical who thinks many of the accomplishments of our time are destroying us as a society. Fox mentions that the earth is destroying itself by its technological culture. Technology has improved the way of life for all and it is the only way we will survive. The benefits from our technological achievements can not be measured.

Eye For An Eye - 882 words
An Eye for an Eye As an American citizen, one receives the rights of life, liberty, and property. If someone is to rob one of these freedoms of life, the court should also take away his or her freedom. Murderers in the United Stated receive too little of a punishment when they kill another human being. Reinstating the death penalty has hardly deterred criminals. This is because of the easy sentences that criminals can receive after they murder another human being. Presently in the United States, the average sentence for murder is six years. If a person were to kill someone when they were twenty-three years old, they would be out roaming the streets again before they reach the age of thirty. ...

Deterrence - 530 words
The death penalty seems to be a controversial issue for most people. Supporters claim that it eliminates repeat offenders, deters potential murderers, and is the ultimate retribution. Opponents denounce it as murder, say that it does not cause deterrence but rather promotes violence, and claim that it introduces the chance of an innocent person being executed. Of all the arguments presented by both sides, one seems to be more compelling and crucial than the rest-deterrence. Will the use of the death penalty cause potential murderers to be less likely to commit murder? Deterrence may sound like a dull word, but think of the implications. If the death penalty really causes deterrence, then usi ...

Mandatory Drug Testing - 1,880 words
It has become all too common for governmental institutions across the nation to pass rules saying that certain people are subject to random drug testing. The central question that is raised deals with the righteousness of being subjected to testing even when there is no overwhelming warrant. Under the protection of the unreasonable search and seizures, including bodily searches, in the fourth amendment of the constitution, certain people, such as students and welfare recipients, to name a few, feel that their rights as citizens and human beings are being violated when they have to submit to mandatory drug tests, but on the other side there are those who believe that if someone is willing to ...

A Time To Die - 874 words
Active euthanasia is a necessary course of action and should be allowed as long as the decision is being made by the family members or the patient themselves. The American Medical Association claims active euthanasia is against its policy, but improving the quality of life for a patient is, so what happens if the patients life could be made better by ending it? In a statement by the American Medical Association, they claim the intentional termination of the life of one human being by another mercy killing-is contrary to that for which the medical profession stands and is contrary to the policy of the American Medical Association. The American Medical Associations policy is to save lives and ...

Computer technology is so helpful, that it is even used to create newer, better computer equipment. Almost everything today is linked in some way, to computers. Before computers were invented, very little was known about outer space. With the technology we have now, we are learning new things everyday. Computers are used to follow the paths of asteroids and predict their future movements. On 6 December 1997, a mile-wide asteroid was discovered by astronomer Jim Scotti, a member in the University of Arizona's Spacewatch group.

Malcolm X - 740 words
Hero is defined as many things. One is a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability. A hero could also be a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities. A hero is a person that shows great courage and is an object of extreme admiration and devotion. When people think of a hero, they usually think of a strong and big man like Superman and Batman. Their whole life is dedicated to saving lives and helping people. To me someone who helps save lives is a hero, but there is also another type of hero. It can be someone who stands up for their rights and tries to change something that many people think could never be changed. Malcolm X is ...

Animal Rights - 1,511 words
Do you think a rat should have the right to go up to your table and eat with you? No, of course not. We are higher up in the world. This is what animal right activists are fighting for. They say give animals the rights they deserve. The truth is if we give animals rights, we will be putting them on the same level as the human race. I know that I do not want to be on the same level as a rat. Animals should not have rights! The use of animals in medical research is necessary in developing safe and effective medicines for treating human diseases.

Television Violence - 1,961 words
The other day while I was in a local McDonalds, I noticed a disturbing scene. A father and two young boys were waiting in line to get an early lunch. The younger of the two boys lay dozing off, while the other more energetic ran around, playing with things as most five years olds do. The young boy walking around saw a toy that was claimed to be included in the infamous Happy Meal. He pleaded quietly with his father, who told him that he would get whatever toy came with the meal. Unsatisfied, the little boy started to cry, and then proceeded to throw a fit. The father, seemingly at a loss for words told the boy to calm down. The little boy then threw himself on the floor and started to kick. ...
