Pasteur PASTEUR, Louis (1822-95). The French chemist Louis Pasteur devoted his life to solving practical problems of industry, agriculture, and medicine. His discoveries have saved countless lives and created new wealth for the world. Among his discoveries are the pasteurization process and ways of preventing silkworm diseases, anthrax, chicken cholera, and rabies. Pasteur sought no profits from his discoveries, and he supported his family on his professor\'s salary or on a modest government all
pesticides1 Should we be concerned with the extensive use of pesticides by farmers? I believe we should be aware of the consequences of pesticide use. The more we are exposed to pesticides, the greater the risk there is to the environment and our health. They are responsible for many environmental problems such as water pollution, soil degradation, and insect resistance. I will look at all the environmental impacts caused by pesticide use. But what led to the rise of the use of pesticides? Treme
placebos Why we need placebos English/ science By Jj walliss A placebo is defined as an inactive substance resembling a medication, given for psychological effect or as a control in evaluating a medicine believed to be active. However the placebo only fits this description under the restraints it has been given by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which refers to the placebo as an investigational new drug. In actuality, up until the present much of medicine was built on placebos. Not very
places The Life and Times of Diego Rivera Diego Rivera is one of, if not the most, famous artist to ever come out of South America. His influence can be seen not only to his own country, but also all over the world. Rivera was born on December 13, 1886, the date of one of many Mexican religious festivals, in Guanajuato. He was the first in a set of twins. His twin brother’s name was José Carlos and he died at the age of one and a half. As a matter of fact, his whole name was actually Diego Maria
Postmodern culture constitutes a crisis in representation In a world of delusions, illusions, allusions and virtual realities, but also of constructed realities and of ‘deconstructed’ textualities, the means of representation, the signs, have dissolved in the ongoing process of infinite semiosis. The crisis of representation is the apprehension of a world in which the signs have lost their power to represent anything. Where is the structural foundation of text in a network of hypertextuality, ex
proof of evolution ˙Proof of Evolution Evolution is a fairly simple idea. A broad definition of it is “Species change over time.” Evolutionary theory is supported by a huge body of evidence, including the fossil record and observation of organisms alive today. That is the reason it is embraced by most mainstream scientists. Theologists, whose arguments are based totally on faith, base their theories on fiction not proven fact. Faith, being belief that isn\'t based on evidence, is the principal v
Pulp and Paper Industry Introduction The uses and applications of paper and paper products are virtually limitless. In addition to the societal needs of paper for recording and disseminating of information, and for packaging materials, the United States pulp and paper industry employs more than 200,000 people, produces nine million tons of pulp, and 26 billion newspapers, books and magazines annually. Though U.S. mills represent only 15% of paper mills worldwide, they produce 36% of the worlds
Pythagoras Pythagoras Pythagoras must have been one of the world\'s greatest men. However, he wrote nothing and it is unknown how much of the doctrine of Pythagoras is due to the founder of society and how much is later development. Sometimes he is represented as a man of science, a mathematician, and even as a preacher of mystical doctrines. None of these traditional views, however, should be rejected, for he contributed his genius in each field. Pythagoras lived from about 569 BC to about 475
racism and evolutionary theory How Racism Has Been Shaped by Evolutionary Ideas. Racism has been perpetuated falsely by evolutionary ideas throughout history. Since the beginning of intelligent life mankind has discriminated against others of it\'s own species. The in group mentality may be a genetic psychological trait. However, evolutionary theory has been used to justify unfair treatment of certain groups. Literature and other forms of influence have used evolutionary ideas to perpetuate ra
Rain ˙Acid Rain Acid Rain Introduction Acid rain has become an environmental concern of global importance within the last decade. With the increasing environmental awareness of the unhealthy condition of our planet earth the concern about acid rain has not lessened. In brief, acid rain is rain with pH values of less than 5.6. When dealing with acid rain one must study and understand the process of making Sulfuric acid. In this project we will take an in depth look into the production of sulfur

Rattlesnake Crotalus horridus The Timber Rattlesnake By Arthur Ebbinger Professor: Mr. Marquess Biology: 1010 Date: 11 August 1999 The following is a brief description, as well as know characteristics commonly associated with the Crotalus horridus snake family. The Crotalus horridus is commonly referred to as the timber rattlesnake, or in more indigenous terms, the canebrake or banded rattlesnake. Its genus name is a translation from the Greek word krotalon, which means rattle. The species is a
reefs Coral reefs Coral reefs are arguably the world\'s most beautiful habitats. Coral reefs have been called the rainforests of the oceans, because of the rich diversity of life they support. Scientists have not yet finished counting the thousands of different species of plants and animals that use or live in the coral reef. There are three types of coral reefs: fringing reefs, barrier reefs, and atolls. Fringing reefs are located close to shore, separated from land by only shallow water. Barri
religion and evolution Religion & Evolution In my short life on this planet I have come to question things that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves, which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existe
Religion Versus Common Sense Religion vs. Common Sense Of all the things learned and decided in ones life, the subject of religion is always considered the most important. This report very well may upset some of the “Bible belt” Christians, who cannot seem to allow any thought or idea but there own, but it needs to be said. The basis is simple, in today’s world, and especially here in America, the concept of religion has taken an unfortunate turn. The power of religion has been given almost sole

Ever since history has been recorded, man has constructed society around water as a resource. As technology and science increased; civilizations created new ways to store and manage water, this new knowledge came a the production of dams. Many people have already dammed a small stream using sticks and muddy the time they become adul

science and god With each new development in science comes conflict, mostly from those who dont 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

Aggression and sport have gone together as long as sports have been around, be it the players themselves, to the parents, coaches, or spectators, they just seem to be an inseparable part of each other. The term violence is defined as physical assault based on total disregard for the well being of self and others, or the intent to injure another person ( 2. Coakley). I
shark The Tiger Shark Joe Barger Science III December 10, 1999 The Tiger shark’s name derives from the distinctive dark bands that run from the top of it’s back down along it’s sides. The stripes are very evident in younger sharks because the stripes start to fade away as it ages, then turning a gray or brownish color. However, all of the Tiger sharks have an off-white ventral surface. The Tiger sharks’ scientific name, Galeocerdo cuvier, consists of its Genus, Galeocerdo, and Species, cuvier, n

System of Beliefs The ‘love of wisdom’. This, the literal meaning of philosophy, deals with the most general questions about the universe and our place in it. It attempts to ask questions which seemingly can never be answered empirically nor by observation or experiment. It is concerned with the common core of human knowledge and experience but also with the concepts, modes of argument, and foundations of other subjects like science, history, art, politics and religion. In order to ask philosoph
The Brain The Brain Can you image a hunk of pinkish-gray tissue the size of your hand that is controlling your entire body? This organ in your body is called the brain. The brain is not the largest organ but is the most complex organ in your body. (Metos, 1990, p. 10 ) When you think of the brain do you think of the control center of movement, sleep, hunger, thirst, and virtually every other vital activity necessary to survive? Or do you think of the brain as the organ that controls emotions inc

The Hopi Prophecy INTRODUCTION The Hopi people are a strong people. They have many beliefs about life, and the way that one should live. Some people may see the Hopi as ethnocentric. I argue that ethnocentrism is not the driving force of the Hopi, but their culture and heritage has shaped them to be the proud people they are. In this paper I plan to examine the Hopi people, some of their “unusual” beliefs, and the prophecy that leads the Hopi nation to live in the way of the Hopi. THE PEOPLE Hop
The Impact of A Car How long can the environment endure the gradual deterioration that is increasingly instigated through car pollution? There is a tremendous environmental impact on our society that impacts us in the most unpredicted ways, and I’m going to share some suitable alternatives with you. Today’s technology has presented several alternatives that could potentially decrease the amount of car pollution in the environment; however, humans seemingly neglect these alternatives in favor of
the island of Dr moreau H.G. Wells is known by many as the father of modern science fiction. Herbert George Wells was born in 1866 in Bromley, Kentucky. As a child Wells broke his leg and while recovering from the injury, spent most of his time reading all the books he could find. He attended the Normal School of Science in London on a full Scholarship. At this school, he teamed up with Thomas H. Huxley, who taught him a great deal about science fiction and clearly influenced Wells studies. Afte
THE MIND The Study of the Mind: Mind & Thinking The objective of The Mind is to provide the reader with a unique overview of the thinking of human kind. Self-understanding is one of humankind’s most ancient quests. Who am I? What is my relationship to the world around me? These questions marked the beginnings of philosophy. They are initiations in the search for mind, for, at least in the one respect; we are unique among all creatures. Only we are curious about our origins, the meaning of existe
The Occult And Main Stream Faith The Occult And Main Stream Faith In the period of history in which we are living, a very strong element of revolt exists, revolt against all established institutions. This is good. Those established institutions are, for the most part, extremely oppressive of human personal liberty and human freedom of thought and religion. We today are told to live life by one set of rules, which are to love and to worship one god. When we are first born, our parents tell us wha

Bible believers feel that it was an act of God, who intern wanted to cleanse the earth of immoral people and evildoers. Chosen survivors, for examp
The Salem Witch Trails The Salem witch trials began with the accusation of people in Salem of being witches. But the concept of witchcraft started far before these trials and false accusations occurred. In the early Christian centuries, the church was relatively tolerant of magical practices. Those who were proved to have engaged in witchcraft were required only to do penance. But in the late Middle Ages (13th century to 14th century) opposition to alleged witchcraft hardened as a result of the

the way it is How to Explain Diversity: A Cultural problem The history of humanity has shown that the influences of a select few, charting their ideas of what is right and wrong, pure or dirty, black or white may all influence cultures; but these principles do not follow a certain direction. Rather, with the continuance of culture through time, the principles have diverged human experience into thousands of different cultures. In Biology as Ideology, the argument of genetic determinism arises; o

Think about that for a moment. Consequences influence behavior. It means that people do things because they know other things will fol

Does gene splicing ever cross your mind as you slice tomatoes, or do you ever think about growth hormones as you sink your teeth into that juicy steak? Not very often if you are like most people, but perhaps you should. Many of the items you eat have been genetically modified by using biotechnology in some way. These products are often refer

vegan is the way to go The greatest of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.(Mahatma Gandhi Quotes) Gandhi said this in his book, The Moral Basis of Vegetarianism, this belief is still valid in today\'s modern society. At the present time in the United States, the concern for the health and well being of animals is drastically increasing. And one of the most substantial indications of this is the increasing number of vegans and vegetarians in our nat

And if that is truly the case, then a lot of Americans would appear to be unhealthy, chemically treated, commercially raised slabs of animal flesh. And while that is not a particularly pleasant thought, it is nonetheless an description of the typical American omnivore who survives on the consumption of Big Macs and steak fajitas. But there are individuals who do not follow this American norm and have altered their diets so that they do no
Wealth of Nations Introduction Wealth means well-being; Smith\'s book is in fact about material well-being. The Wealth of Nations is an influential statement of the case for laissez-faire, the thesis that government should not attempt to control or direct economic activity. His arguments are in terms of both economic efficiency and justice. (Keep an eye out for his references to justice and rights.) As you read these extracts ask what functions he thinks governments do and do not have, and w

In times like the present, the U.S. and the United Nations are dealing with a huge international problem known as weapons control and an example of the weapons control problem, is the constant battle with Saddam Hussein and Iraq, involving weapon inspections by the UN. The UN has the right to inspect weapon facilities and the manufacturing of weapons of any country in the world. But the problem is how do we go about demolishin

What is Pyschology What is Psychology? Before entering the History of Psychology class, I thought that psychology was the science of human and animal behavior, experience and mental processes. I still believe that this statement is true, but now I know that psychology is more than that. I also felt that psychology is used to help people through analyzing their behavior, this is true but it is also used to classify people. Now I can see that psychology is a social construct used to organized peop

How would you feel if you were looking at yourself with no mirror? If we leave it up to the government you could very well be put into that situation. Is cloning ethical or unethical? I believe that cloning is unethical and should b
