...Kramer Gibson English 2010 August 12, 2011 Simian 40 Virus (Monkey Virus) The scientific medical community must accept the fact that the Simian 40 Virus that was introduced through the Polio Vaccine back in the 50's, is, in deed the base cause of many of today's cancers and immune deficiency diseases. So that once this argument is accepted, positive research can be done in finding a way to kill this virus, kill the cancer it has caused, and rebuilds the immune system, thus finding the real cure for cancer. Between 1952 and 1955 many Researchers including Jonas Salk were frantically trying to perfect a vaccination to stop the horrible effects of the deadly Polio Virus that had swept the Nation as well as the world. The vaccine had to be developed in live tissue, more specifically, a fresh kidney that most closely resembled that of a human's kidney. As the Rhesus Monkey from India was already so abundantly used in laboratories, not much debate went into the choice of subject. Even though the monkey is dirty, temperamental, and it’s bite has already proven to be deadly, the rhesus monkey’s kidney was the tissue used to grow the Polio vaccine. The kidney was extracted from the monkey while still alive, then injected with the live Polio Virus where it was grown and tested. The monkey’s kidney was full of unknown viruses, while totally safe for monkeys, still harmful when injected into the human’s blood stream. The researchers, especially Jonas...

English Term Paper Hamlet

...N V Professor Bayer English 1202 AO 25 April 2011 Revenge and Forgiveness Revenge and forgiveness are the two underlying factors that are present throughout the entirety of William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet: Prince of Denmark. The play is begun with the death of Hamlet’s father, which Hamlet finds to be unsettling from the start. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius then takes over the throne while Hamlet’s mother then marries his uncle. It is then that the ghost of his father, tells Hamlet that the very man who had become king murdered him in cold blood; the ghost brings the idea of revenge to Hamlet’s mind (Shakespeare 1547). While revenge is constantly on his mind throughout the play, there is also the idea that Hamlet must forgive those who have done wrongs to him or his family; this is shown through his dedication to religion. But in the end, Hamlet’s internal need to seek revenge for his father’s death is so great that he is ultimately unable to forgive his uncle. The play begins with the sudden death of Hamlet’s father, and his uncle Claudius, his father’s brother, taking the throne (Shakespeare 1550). Hamlet’s mother chooses to marry Claudius just days after the death of Hamlet’s father, and Prince Hamlet expresses his disgust through his soliloquies, where he exclaims, “Frailty, thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare 1553). After some time, Hamlet is brought out to a forest by two guards who have claimed to see the ghost of his father. After some deliberation, the ghost of......

...Assignment #3 Analysis of “The Alchemist” Final draft The Alchemist is a brilliant novel by the great Brazilian author “Paulo Coelho’. This novel tells the story of a young shepherd called Santiago who lives alone with his herd of sheep. He travels from one place to the other, meeting new people and exploring new things. In one of his journeys, he meets an old woman who has the ability of foretelling the future. This woman tells him that there is a treasure that is waiting for him. After this, the young shepherd keeps looking for this treasure by travelling through different countries and learning about various traditions. During his journey for the treasure, he falls in love with an Arabian girl called Fatima and she also taught him a lot of new things. Finally, he arrives at the place where the treasure is supposed to be, in Egypt. Surprisingly, he does not find any treasure! Taking a closer look at this novel, naturally the reader would question the reason behind going through all of these obstacles in the novel, when the shepherd ends up without the treasure. Is the author’s intention to provide the reader with entertainment and suspense? Or is it just an open end for this book, with the aim that the young shepherd finds the treasure in part two of the book? The answer to these questions is that the author’s intention is neither to develop suspense for the reader so he could be entertained, nor to make the reader himself searches for the treasure in another......

...Social Media, Do They Really Make Us More Social? In today's society, many people of all ages use social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Instagram, and many more through their phones and computers. These social networking sites allow people to find, connect, and have relationships with just about anyone, from a classmate in your English 101 class to the pretty girl or boy you just met in last night's party. Browsing these sites can make you feel connected with others, but such easy, casual connection in an electronic environment has its downside. These social networking sites do not improve the social lives of people, but instead, these sites ruin the social lives of people by creating false sense of connection, bullying, having less privacy, and decreasing people's productivity from the real-world. Ironically, social media sites do not make the social lives of people better. They isolate people from society and causes people to have difficulty communicating with others in the real-world. It is because the bonds that people have online are fake which creates false sense of connection or relationship causing people to struggle communicating with others in the real-world. "It’s true that by eliminating barriers like geography, time of the day, and physical availability for a conversation, these social media make it easier and quicker for people to remain in contact and have relationships with other people"("All this social media might be making...

...and licences. Life Usually, a corporation has a term of 50 years although it can be renewed five years before the end of the current term, giving the business organization the nature of unlimited life. Needless to say, the life of a partnership is quite different considering that at any moment a partner might withdraw his stake at the partnership resulting into the dissolution of the firm. From the viewpoint of capitalists and silent investors, a corporation is more stable compared to a partnership considering the term of existence of the two business organizations. Taxation Another material difference between a partnership and a corporation is the way the two business organizations are taxed. Partnerships are subject only to simple taxation policies while corporations are under a double taxation scheme as the profit of the corporation is subject to corporate income tax while the dividends distributed to shareholders are also taxed independently. 4 Dedication: I dedicate my term paper work specially to God.

...This year, in my English 1302 class, I have learned writing skills that I will utilize for the rest of my college career. Communication through text is a critical skill of modern day society and should rightfully take place as required curricula. I have grown through my efforts as a writer and my increasingly practical knowledge of essay construction, source integration as well as an understanding of the importance of this course. In my post-diagnostic examination, I received 56 out of 74. This was four questions less than my pre-diagnostic examination in which I received 60 out of 74. I feel I have grown as a writer further than just correcting the last minute grammatical and spelling errors in order to complete my final drafts. Instead, I have also blossomed in the skill of communication through my writing. I have learned the required structure of an essay, and how to construct a literature review as well as a researched argument. I still require practice in some areas of grammatical structure, such as comma splicing, as this was a recurring problem and an area of weakness for me. I have learned that a properly formed essay requires an introduction, body paragraphs and a conclusion. In the introduction, the thesis should be clear and is normally located at the end of the introduction. I learned the introduction requires an exigency describing why my topic is significant. In the body paragraphs, topic sentences are crucial. They should point back to the thesis and explain...

...John Smith English 2323 – CRN 40738 28 March 2015 Midterm Essay – Topic 1 The Effects of Industrialism Although the modern world as we know it could not have existed without the Industrial Revolution, seldom thought is ever given to the real women, men and children whose lives were directly affected by the innovative technologies that changed labor and social normality’s throughout western civilization. An example of the vast economic and social change brought about by industrialism can be observed in Britain during the Victorian age where the way of life for the common laborer completely changed, as the text describes: Transformations in the production of textiles led to the first and most dramatic break with age-old practices … by the beginning of the Victorian period, the Industrial Revolution had already created profound economic and social changes. Hundreds of thousands of workers had migrated to the industrial towns … Employers often preferred to hire women and children, who worked for even less money than men (1581). Prose writer Henry Mayhew and poets Elizabeth Barret Browning and William Morris offer profound insight into the hardships of industrialism and its effect upon the poorest laborers, child workers and socialist political movements during the Victorian era of Great Britain. The poor and common laborer suffered greatly during the progress of industrialism. The advent of technological advances caused a great deal of influx in labor pools,......

...Lizbeth Gerena Final Project- My Writing Portfolio English Comp. 101 Prof. Cody June 27, 2015 I have decided to enter writing assignments 1, 2, and 5 into my writing portfolio as a part of my final project. I chose these three specific essays because each essay relates to me in a unique way regarding my life experiences. I feel that I capture my audience’s attention in such a personal way that they desire to hear more. My personal writing comes from a vantage point about a particular subject in an expressive aim. The content of my writings are equipped for people who are more advanced in life; compared to those who haven’t had experience to support a family, finances, or particular employment. My writings apply to the expressive aim of writing and have comparable lacks. In my future writing processes, I plan to sum up my essays with less redundancy and more content. I learned to touch on the major points of my writings without presenting new information into my conclusions. While reviewing my essays, I realized that I continued to repeat the same errors but made the effort to not double speak when creating my words and thoughts. Given the corrections, I was able to make improvements to my writings so that they will have a continuous, but steady flow avoiding lessening the value of the subject at hand. Throughout the review process of my writing assignment 1, I was able to learn how to conduct APA Style within in my......

...Gerri Stewart Professor Maselli English 103 17 January 2016 Two Is Always Better Than One In this life people are destined to have one father that is responsible for the creation of their life. However Danticat was blessed to have two fathers who loved and taught her the essence of strength. While reading the book “Brother, I’m Dying” Danticat tells a story about her life in Haiti, being raised by her uncle, and her father who lived in America. She later reunited with her father and joined him in the United States. The story shows how two different influences ignited her passion for writing. Uncle Joseph was a man who exemplified courage. Miracin was a man who fought through his sickness. Both men had their own struggles, however, they were able to persevere through them and teach Danticat how to be a fighter, and how to proclaim courage despite adversity. Next Danticat saw her uncle Joseph go to the ends of the earth for a child he raised as his own in hopes to save Marie from the hands of death from another man. She has seen him fight through the disease that left him with no voice, and she even saw him endure the loss of his wife. Yet he still was able to continue on despite the feelings of loneliness and pain. The time when Uncle Joseph continued to stay in his home while war broke out. Or the time when he told his family to leave his home and let him stay behind. He never gave up the fight for justice, and peace. This gave Danticat knowledge on how to defeat......

...The season of carnival involves many people partying in the streets for hours on end. This also involves much drinking and socializing so most people are drunk and do not know what they are saying or saying too much of the truth. During the festival he happens upon Fortunato, who appears to have been drinking for some time and asks him if he would like to go and taste the pipe of Amontillado - a wine he had just bought. When Montresor asked Fortunato this question, he knows the answer will be yes because, “He had a weak point - this Fortunato - although in other regards he was a man to be respected and even feared. He prided himself on his connoisseurship in wine.”(Poe 543) This makes it easy for him to lure poor unknowing Fortunato to his final resting place. He was not expecting to die or anything close to it. He was expecting to get drunk while enjoying some very good wine. When one is told they are going to go taste wine by a good friend they let some of their shields down. When with people we know and trust we tend to not be on our guard or expect anything to happen. Another fact, besides Fortunato’s inebriation, which enabled Montresor to easily keep him on the unhealthy path of his own destruction, was his ego. Several times before and on the trip through the dungeon, Montresor implies he can get another man, Luchesi, to inspect the Amontillado, so that they can return to the healthier surface. For in the dungeon there is poor air and was making Fortunato cough and be......
