The Pivot Points Of Alcohol Consumption Control - 1,943 words
For thousands of years alcohol has been regarded by society as a temporary escape from reality and the tensions of everyday life. People use alcohol to reduce stress, to relax, and to enjoy a good evening. This should be the real purpose of alcohol drinking. This is the way in which alcohol should be looked upon. There should be no reason for alcohol drinking to be looked upon as negative action. Drinking alcohol however, is in fact regarded as a negative action by society and the government. This is not because of the action drinking alcohol itself but actually because of the abuse people undertake with such an action. Alcohol reduces the ability of a human being to undergo the basic and ev ...

Moderating Modern Day Alcohol Consumption - 936 words
I work at a restaurant in Ithaca. In this restaurant we also cater. I recently catered a frat party and was astonished with all the alcohol that such a small number of people had consumed in less then two hours. I understand that in social gatherings, which may include alcohol, are for the most part a time to kick back and relax from our regular grind. However, for potential alcoholics this lifestyle may present a problem. This is because drinking leads certain people a step farther down the road to becoming an unsocial drinker and later a victim, an Alcoholic. Why is it such a problem for us to drink? Its a large issue because of the nature of the poison in which we are ingesting, Ethanol. ...

Hypoglycemia - 1,246 words
Hypoglycemia is a condition in which the amount of sugar in the blood drops to an abnormally low level. It occurs in association with a number of diseases and can affect anyone. Blood sugar, more formally known as glucose, is the fuel all cells in your body uses for heat and energy (Hypoglycemia, (Low Blood Sugar)).

Prohibition - 1,330 words
As under a spell, the people had suffered this act to be brought to its fatal conclusion, but with the first touch of cold reality the charm was undone, and the law appeared in its true aspect. Brought about by the Eighteenth Amendment and enforced through the Volstead Act, lasted for over a decade. Despite a growing lack of public support for both Prohibition and restraint itself, the ban on alcohol continued throughout the United Statesat least in the law books. In practice, however, National Prohibition was much less effective than restraint and Prohibition leaders had hoped, in the end causing more problems than it solved. Once passed, Prohibition directly led to the increase in crime an ...

How Can Domestic Violence Be Explained - 1,330 words
... milies who are prone to domestic violence, it cannot be possible to rely solely on stresses as an explanation of abuse. Most social-economic/socio-demographically stressed men do not abuse their partners. Another explanation of domestic violence that has been much researched and documented is that of learned behaviour which is sometimes known as the cycle of violence. These well-documented studies show that domestic violence may occur when a child has been exposed to, witnessed or experienced domestic violence in their family origin. One such study carried out by Strauss et al (1979) found that there was a clear trend for violence in childhood to produce violence in adult life; Violence ...

E. coli are germs that normally live the intestines of people and animals. The most common symptoms are severe stomach cramps and diarrhea. E. coli lives in the intestines of healthy cattle and can get into the meat when cattle are slaughtered. The germs are killed when the meat is thoroughly cooked. The most common food source is ground beef because the grinding spreads the germs throughout the meat.

Bias - 878 words
People read articles everyday, but they do not recognize that bias is being used to alternate their opinion.

Alcohol Is Bad - 355 words

The CD reinforced my thoughts on the lack of respect for life drinking and driving involves, as well as all of the shown predicaments. All of the people that the CD focused on had a lack of respect for one another. They were irresponsible and their situation was predicted by their personality. The CD taught me to be aware of these people and aid in prevention of a dangerous outcome even though I choose not to try and associate myself with persons of similar character.
