Writing piece 1 – Argumentative/Informative essay on Human Genetic Engineering Statement of Intention: Genetic engineering is a process where human scientists tamper with the genetic code of un-born babies, thus being able to manipulate the genes and shape the baby into whatever they want by taking out certain genes. In this essay, we’ll have a look as to why Genetic engineering isn’t good for our society. Though some parents might agree to have their babies genetically engineered, there is a gr
ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF ART This paper will show the relationship between the environment and fine arts. Both of these subjects are evaluated on a perceptual basis of what the observer sees and appreciates. As the basis for this report, it will be determined what is considered art and what comprises the environment. Defining what is art has been discussed at least since Plato wrote in The Republic about the place of the artist in society. The importance of art to mankind has peculiarly modern i
Genetically modified organisms have no place outside the laboratory Genetic modification is the modification of genetic modification of genetic make-up so that modification is passes on to the organism’s descendants. Recently the term has come to be used for the process of ‘genetic engineering’ where newly developed processes of molecular biotechnology are used to insert relatively few genes into an organism’s genome. These techniques rely on the ability to cut DNA precisely, isolate desired fra
Virus A scientist funded by the US government has deliberately created an extremely deadly form of mousepox, a relative of the smallpox virus, through genetic engineering. The new virus kills all mice even if they have been given antiviral drugs as well as a vaccine that would normally protect them. The work has not stopped there. The cowpox virus, which infects a range of animals including humans, has been genetically altered in a similar way. The new virus, which is about to be tested on anima

Basics of Genetics and Genetic Engineering my name my teacher,the hour June 5, 1996 Genetics is the study of how physical, biochemical, and behavioral traits are transmitted from parents to their offspring. The science of genetics started in 1900, when the work of Gregor Mendel was discovered. Mendel described the inheritence patterns of garden peas. He suggested after researching his pea-plant experiment that each parent has pairs of units but contributes only one unit for to each pair of its o
Society’s False Education Starting at the young age of five, we spend a large percentage of our time sitting in rows of seats in classrooms, listening to a stranger telling us what we should or should not know. We convince ourselves that we are preparing to go out into the world where we will succeed by our own motivations, limited by nothing except for our own free will. However, contrary to this belief, our education does not properly prepare us for this—it instead hinders us. Society, through
Albert Einstein Recognized in his own time as one of the most creative people in human history, Albert Einstein, in the first 15 years of the 20th century, advanced a series of theories that for the first time asserted the equivalence of mass and energy and proposed entirely new ways of thinking about space, time, and gravitation. His theories of relativity and gravitation were a profound advance over the old Newtonian physics and revolutionized scientific and philosophic inquiry. He was a self-
Ted Turner Ted Turner is best remembered in the year of 1991 when he reinvented the work that he did. He was about to get fired, but his news report totally reinvented the world of live television broadcast by satellite. The war in Desert Storm began on January 16, 1991. United States Troops invaded Iraq. This was the first war ever to be broadcast worldwide live by satellite. The shots heard, and seen, around the world appeared under the aegis of the first global TV news company, Cable News Net
Fusion Reactions Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that acts between two positively charged nuclei. For fusion to occur, the two nuclei must approach each other at high speed to overcome the electrical repulsion and attain a sufficiently small separation (less than one-trillionth of a centimeter) that the short-range strong nuclear force dominates. For the production of useful amounts of energy, a large number of nuclei must under go fusion: that is to say, a gas o
Sound Recording and Reproduction Sound recording and reproduction can be defined as keeping sound in the form it was meant to be, by the use of electrical, mechanical, or optical means, or by combination of the three. This makes reproducing the sound much easier. You can reproduce the sound at will through stereo systems. The sound quality of a recording is usually decided by the fidelity of the recorded sounds. The best recordings are called high fidelity. They reproduce the original sounds wit
Henry Ford Henry Ford was born on July 30, 1863 in the Detroit, Michigan area. He was the oldest of six children born to William and Mary Litogot O\'Hern Ford, and the grandson of Irish immigrants who had arrived in America in 1847. The entire family were farmers and Ford was raised to take over the family farm when he grew up. He had an intelligent, inquisitive nature and was energized by the huge growth of industry occurring in the Detroit area. He was also an avid experimenter. Once, in order
The Effects of Time Delay of Low-Earth-Orbit Satellite Communication Nam Bo Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering California State Polytechnic University Pomona, California I. Introduction There are several types of orbits used by satellites in space. The most used orbit type is the geostationary satellite(GEO). It occupies an orbital position 36,000 km above the Earth, and remains in a stationary position about the Earth because it is orbiting at the same speed as the Earth [1]. The
Complex Number Complex Number, in mathematics, the sum of a real number and an imaginary number. An imaginary number is a multiple of i, where i is the square root of -1. Complex numbers can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers. They have the algebraic structure of a field in mathematics. In engineering and physics, complex numbers are used extensively to describe electric circuits and electromagnetic waves (see Electromagnetic Radiation). The number i appears explicit
To Watch or Not to Watch Television violence. In these days it’s the first thing that comes to the minds of parents turning on the television for their young children. Because over 90 million homes in the United states contain at least one television set, the graphic violence being shown in most of the programs is becoming a widespread problem (Rooldman 55). The problem of television violence has greatly increased over the years since the study of it got started in 1946, and it has had many last
Alexander Calder In American art history, Alexander Calder is considered an excellent example of someone who took his childhood creative inventions and turned them into a very sophisticated form of art. He is one of the few artists in history to create a new art form: the art of mobile sculpture. Alexander was an internationally recognized artist and his life was filled with creativity, imagination and artistic exploration. As a child, Calder created small wooden and wire figures, built a wine c
Ferrari When an auto enthusiast is asked what automobile maker excels beyond any other, it only takes about one second before they reply with “Ferrari!” What makes Ferrari the epitome of all racing and street performance cars? It’s not a simple question. Though it may seem possible that one or two things make Ferrari automobiles envied by every auto maker, it is in fact a plethora of different aspects that make Ferrari king. To obtain the quality and precision that Ferrari’s yield doesn’t come w
Going to College Analysis I think that all the college I have picked would benefit me more than any four year college, because I don\'t like school and I want to stay out of it as long as I can, so the colleges that I have picked are only two year colleges. Plus I will have to pay for college myself so this would be cheaper to go to than any four year college that I know of. The college that I have picked will teach the things that I will need to get a job right away, for example I will not have
Virtual Reality - What it is and How it Works Imagine being able to point into the sky and fly. Or perhaps walk through space and connect molecules together. These are some of the dreams that have come with the invention of virtual reality. With the introduction of computers, numerous applications have been enhanced or created. The newest technology that is being tapped is that of artificial reality, or "virtual reality" (VR). When Morton Heilig first got a patent for his "Sensorama Simulator" i
BUSINESS ETHICS Ethics to me means having and using ones morals to do the right thing. Ethics is so important in business because it gives a company credibility. When a company has credibility the consumers trust the company and will tend to buy from the company more regularly. Many employers want guidelines to help them in their decision making process, so experts came up with some approaches. They are the Utilitarian Approach, The Rights Approach, and The Common-Good Approach. Corporate Social
Fall of the Roman Empire One of the most famous empires of all time is the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire stretched as far north as Great Britain, as far west as Spain, south to North Africa and east to Mesopotamia. It had many strengths such as their law, which became international, their language of Latin, and their advanced engineering such as roads, aqueducts and bridges. In 476 AD the fall of the Roman Empire took place. It fell because of Political, Social, and Economic reasons. After the
The Issue of Human Cloning The recent news of the successful cloning of an adult sheep-in which the sheep\'s DNA was inserted into an unfertilized sheep egg to produce a lamb with identical DNA-has generated an outpouring of ethical concerns. These concerns are not about Dolly, the now famous sheep, nor even about the considerable impact cloning may have on the animal breeding industry, but rather about the possibility of cloning humans. For the most part, however, the ethical concerns being rai
