The Early Detection And Treatments Of Adolescent Depression And Suicide - 1,113 words
Only in the past two decades has depression in adolescents been taken seriously. Depression is an illness that involves the body, mood and thoughts. It affects the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about things. Therefore it comes to no surprise to discover that adolescent depression is strongly linked to teen suicide. Adolescent suicide is now responsible for more deaths in youths aged 15 to 19 than cardiovascular disease or cancer (Blackman, 1995). Despite this alarming increased suicide rate, depression in this age group is greatly under diagnosed and can lead to serious difficulties in school, work, and personal adjustment, which may co ...

Immunohistochemical Detection - 1,384 words
A lot of work has been done recently to establish a Human Genome Model, a genetic map, physical map and comparative DNA sequence of human chromosomes. This work with the Human Genome Model cannot be achieved without a small part upon the parallel implementation of gene mapping projects in other species. One of these other species which has been associated with the human recently has been the feline (1). With exception to the primates, of the nonprimate mammalian species with developing comparative gene maps, the feline gene map (Felis Cat) displays the highest level of syntenic conservation with that of the humans gene map. The comparison of the human and feline map has shown many similariti ...

Crop Production - 879 words
Beginning about 12,000 years ago, the human population began a trend that completely changed the way we, as a race, evolved. For the first time in history, humans pushed beyond the restraints of traditional hunting and gathering, into domestication and farming. It was a change that would not only take thousands of years to prove worthy, but also may have set us back on the evolutionary path at the time. Along the path to this point, we have been constantly changing and finding new ways to produce and maximize the yield of the crops we sow. Have these changes been successful or detrimental to us? The following will search into answering this question. Since the beginning, increased crop produ ...

... at current levels hay must be purchased from an outside party (at $80.00/ton) to support any volume of cattle above 30 during the winter months. Recently, RCC has been faced with the opportunity to expand self-produced hay in two different manners. First, RCC can buy a parcel of land that will produce an additional 100 tons of hay per year. This would bring total winter hay production to 160 tons per year. Second, RCC can install an irrigation system on current hay producing land to maximize its hay producing potential. With an irrigation system you can produce an extra 40 tons of hay per year. This would bring total winter hay production to 100 tons per year The choice of what combinat ...

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 ) ...

The CAT 5 UTP cabling will be run through the ceiling plenum and down the wall through 1 conduit to a mounting box with an RJ-45 faceplate with connectors.

Do your homework and trouble-shooting before calling the printer manufacturer and blaming them for having a crappy printer. I will give you an example of what I am talking about. I was dealing with a PC support person for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I got an email stating that the printer has never worked since the day that they got it and has cost them thousands of dollars in down-time and he wanted to know what we planned on doing about it. I asked him what the problem was and he said, "It doesn't print jobs sometimes". Well, that is certainly helpful ...

Canceris There An Effective Treatment - 1,243 words
... tumors that are too big to be surgically removed and to help destroy any cancer cells that may remain after surgery. Chemotherapy is 77% effective in killing small cases of cancer (United States Cancer Patient Survival). If a cancer tumor can be located to a specific region, surgery is used to remove the tissue the cancer has infected. Surgery is usually recommended for patients who have small cancer cells scattered throughout the body, and patients who have a single organ that is infected with the cancer. One of the main problems with surgery is that not all of the cancer may be removed. Some cancer cells are extremely small and may be overlooked during operation. Surgery is 69% effecti ...

Capital Punishment - 682 words
How criminals should be punished? Before any test in class, some students who are not well prepared for the test usually think about cheating in class. But when they know that the punishment for being caught will not be just a zero on the test as usual but an F for the class, they will think about it ten times before they do it. So, I believe that all sentencing is based on the principle that punishment should be proportionate to the seriousness of the crime, especially when it is about a crime like murder. While the debate over capital punishment wavers between its pros and its cons, the major questions are usually framed in terms of practicality: is execution of an offender the best way to ...

Lucy Wainwright Roche September 2000 Contemporary American Fiction In Cold Blood Beloved These days when a reader settles in to read a book, it is hard to know what to expect. In the past, there may have been a more rigid idea about what makes a novel or a story, now, there are many ways in which a modern writer can choose to portray a happening or a feeling. This development in fiction writing creates an exciting concept. It turns reading into a wonderfully intriguing activity where nothing can be completely assumed. As a result of this, there is an air of mystery to reading contemporary fiction. Add to this elusive mix, a book which is presented as a mystery, or, a novel which has a plot t ...

Clean Air Act - 1,244 words
1990, the federal Clean Air Act was passed to improve air quality in the United States. President Bush's proposed amendments to the Clean Air Act initially would have led to the introduction of alternative, non-petroleum fuels. The petroleum and oxygenate industries responded by offering a reformulated gasoline program as a substitute for most of the alternate fuel proposals. As a result, the amendments to the federal Clean Air Act adopted in 1990 required steps to achieve lower vehicle emissions, including programs to oxygenate and reformulate gasoline. Oxygenated gasoline is designed to increase the combustion efficiency of gasoline, thereby reducing carbon monoxide emissions. Since Januar ...

Cold War - 1,907 words
COLD WAR ESSAY The cold war began because of the conflicting ideologies between Soviet Communism and American Capitalism and the misconceptions both countries had about each other. The fact that neither country would reveal anything about them selves added the mystique and created high tensions between countries. Spying was the only way for countries to get a good idea of what the other side was doing and get answers for many previously unanswered questions. Many people had doubts and fears about communism and this gave rise to many people who thought that communist sympathizers should be punished. The most popular of these hateful people by far was Senator Joseph McCarthy. The cold war came ...

Paradise Lost - 781 words
Satan as HumanFools as Godly Miltons Paradise Lost is one of the most unique works from the Renaissance period. Bringing a fresh perspective to the Satan/God conflict that until the time of its authorship, had not been represented, that is, the perspective of Satan himself. Satan is presented as a bit of a fool, reacting more as a human being, which provides a comic element of identity in the rebellion against "Heaven." However, it suggests the operation of the weak or suggestive side of humans that is not "angelic" (i.e. the flesh is willing, but the spirit is weak.) Humans who are less godly than angels are fools. At the same time, fools who are Godly are Sons of God, who in the Earthly re ...

Domestic Terrorism - 1,643 words
Trent Kenmai 5/15/00 Over the past few years a new threat has been encountered by the United States. This threat does not come from away, but from within. It is know as domestic terrorism. This has been seen over the past decade in the form of violence and terrorism across the United States. This has become a threat to American security and the American people in general. To battle against this issue, Congress has upheld the Anti-Terrorism Act in 1996. One of the best examples on examining these acts of uproar can be viewed, seen and understood by studying the case of the Oklahoma bombing which occurred in 1996. Major newspaper headlines have also described the World Trade Center bombing, th ...
