A Discussion and Analysis Of some of his Contributions As Well as their Social, Political and Economic Impacts Since the Thirteen Colonies first united, the United States has had one of the strongest economies in the world. Over the years, many theorists have had varying opinions concerning the reason for this nation's strong economic standing.

Should We Use Nutrasweet And Other Artificial Sweeteners - 1,998 words
Should We Use NutraSweet & Other Artificial Sweeteners? Over the years there has been a huge "food fight" concerning the safety of NutraSweet and other artificial sweeteners. In the eyes of the consumer the safety of such products is questionable. In my opinion it isn't safe to use products like this. Though many scientists and other health professionals claim it to be safe I still don't trust these products. In 1981 the little blue packets of NutraSweet appeared on our restaurant tables, and by 1983 NutraSweet was being widely used in diet sodas. But as soon as this wonder of nutritional science appeared on the scene, there was great controversy over its safety. A component in NutraSweet, a ...

A surgeon guides a small camera through a half-inch incision in the abdomen. The organs in the abdomen can then be examined directly. This is done to find out if the pancreatic tumor has spread to other organs or structures. But what happens if your tumor cannot be surgically removed?

Science And God - 1,473 words
With each new development in science comes conflict, mostly from those who don't believe that science follows the teachings of their religion or allies with their beliefs in an almighty power or God. Looking back in history at some of the great names in human scientific achievement, such as Copernicus, Galileo, and Darwin, we see that with each genius discovery came some outcry from religious groups. Nikolaus Copernicus was one of the first pioneers of science. Until 1540 science had long been a servant of the Christian religion, but Copernicus brought about change, and with that change came persecution. Copernicus' work, although not immediately and widely accepted, lead directly to the und ...

Sin Taxes - 1,144 words
The squeeze is on. Demand for government to decrease it's reliance on sales, property, and income taxes as sources of revenue is continuing to rise, leaving policy makers scrambling for new, less painful sources of revenue. Also going up are the costs of providing public services, entitlement programs, and conducting the other various functions of government. This upward spiral requires that they simultaneously look for better, cheaper, and more effective spending strategies. It is no wonder that policy makers are starting to feel the pinch. To make things all the more uncertain, we are facing a federal debt that seems to swell exponentially on a daily basis and a national economy with the m ...

Steriods - 1,450 words
In many parts of the world today, sports competitions are the vehicle for the fierce quest to win, to be the best. Athletes will do anything to win whether that be cheating in golf or taking steroids in order to excel in baseball. It is said that over 3 million athletes and bodybuilders have used illegal steroids in this country alone (Street 1). If many people already use steroids why not make them legal and let people take them at their own risk? Or perhaps do you think steroids should stay illegal because they have harmful side effects and promote an unfair advantage in sports? With the growing concern over steroid use in our country, we must look at what is really best for the future of ...

I do not think it idle to speculate that the recent "Death-of-God" theology may have forced modern man to look elsewhere, especially to the heavens, for a new God. That we should externalize a quality so deeply rooted in man's nature is not at all surprising and one need not accept Marshall McLuhan's ingenious speculations to see that quite logically man uses his interior world with its enormous powers to try and locate what he has often believed to be omnipresent, yet somehow external.

... approved a new constitution that gave the president enormous powers. However, the Liberal Democratic Party, led by ultranationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky, won more seats than the Reform Party in the new parliament, called the Federal Assembly. In the 1995 elections, the Communist Party prevailed, winning 157 of 355 seats--enough to make them the strongest party in parliament and a thorn in the side of the reform-minded Yeltsin. The resurgence of this "new communism" and ultranationalism--both with supporters who generally oppose cooperation with the West--was seen by many observers as a sign that the Russian people are growing weary of Yeltsins reforms. However, in July 1996, the Russian ...

The Flat Tax - 1,187 words
... nt of the income distribution (Hamond 1). Families with the same total income will face vastly different tax burdens depending on how they earn their income. The family that earns a larger share of its income from labor will pay a higher personal tax than the family that collects more of its income from interest, dividends, and capital gains (Hamond 1). Those in favor of the flat tax would rebut with the fact that all capital income is already taxed at the business level. One of the most debated topics on the flat tax is whether or not it increases economic growth. Proponents of the flat tax claim that the flat tax would allow Americans to keep more of the money they earn, creating the d ...

Ending Racial Profiling - 1,446 words
The federal government should end racial profiling by requiring policemen and other law enforcement officers to keep detailed records of each individual they stop to question or search. These records should include the persons race; the reason stopped; how long the car was detained; and whether a ticket was issued, the car searched, or any illegal goods or weapons were found when the traffic stop was made. Racial profiling is the police practice of stopping and searching African-American and Hispanic drivers at rates far disproportionate to their numbers on the road.
