Individual Analyzing Internet Sources Week 2

...Individual Analyzing Internet Sources Week 2 What did you learn? I learned more than I expected from the Pearson student lab activities. In the first activity I knew most of the information presented, but in the second activity I learned quite a bit about researching a topic. I did not know that the URL .org is no longer limited to a non-profit or research organization; which makes it harder to use that as a reliable resource but it can still be useful. I learned it is important to look for non-bias opinions, information with publish dates are resourceful, research based, and the best domains to find good information on are .org, .gov, .mil, and .edu. Although just because the site has one of these domains it does not mean the resource is accurate or correct necessarily. What did you not learn? Well as I said in the previous paragraph in the first activity most of the information that was present I acquired before. The comparison between the library and the internet are basic knowledge to most people. The Library is based for research purposes, with trained staff to help you, but closes at certain times. The internet has multiple reasons for use, with no trained assistance, but it never closes. They each have great traits that can be used for study. I also knew it is not safe to purchase items online you must be careful when doing this. You need to do research and make sure the site is reliable.

Case Study of Betty Ford

...Case Study of Betty Ford Substances like alcohol are used for many reasons. Alcohol is frequently used as a means of celebration, and also to assist in diminishing feelings of being anxious or overwhelmed. Some people use alcohol in social settings, whereas other people may drink alone. The use of alcohol to self-medicate when challenges come up in everyday life can cause significant problems. In many instances a person can become totally dependent on alcohol so that he or she can function appropriately. If a person builds a tolerance to alcohol, he or she will most likely need to drink every day as well as consuming larger amounts in order to achieve the same feeling. One of the most prominent and well-known instances of alcoholism and substance abuse is Betty Ford. Betty Ford was married to President Gerald R. Ford and was thought to be one of the most powerful first ladies in our history. Betty Ford’s achievements include her sponsorships of breast cancer awareness and women’s rights (Meyer, Chapman, & Weaver, 2009). Even though Betty Ford was acknowledged and respected for these achievements, she turn out to be an even greater inspiration in society when she admitted to and overcame her lifetime battles with prescription drugs and alcohol. Betty Ford was raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was the only daughter and youngest of three children (The National First Ladies’ Library, 2012). Even though Betty had a pleasant and positive childhood, her mother was considered...

Drinking Alone and Hate

...Earnest Hemingway said, “An intelligent man is sometimes force to be drunk to spend time with fools.” The question is, does excessive drinking cause one to develop the state of mind that those around them are fools? Or does one drink to bear the company of others? Then, one has to wonder if loneliness like in “Drinking Alone by Moonlight” by Li Po, when self-inflicted, is still the same. When does it evolve into hate, like in the “Hate Poem” by Julie Sheehan for instance? Drinking holds a lot of positive and negative reputation with it. Great wines make one appear “classy and sophisticated,” the ability to drink large amounts of alcohol make one appear to be “tough” or “cool” among today’s youth. Drinking, partying, and hanging out with friends are all phrases that have come to have the same meaning in today’s vocabulary. What kid’s don’t consider is the effects of long term drinking such as, loneliness, depression, alcoholism, and many other issues. Perhaps if kids knew that it could lead them down the path to, “drink(ing) alone, for no friend is near,” (Li Po pg. 457) they would not take it so lightly. Perhaps if the youth knew that loneliness and alcoholism could easily and quickly develop into hatred of others and things around them, furthering the sense of loneliness that Po felt. It can lead to the type of hate that involves everything one does such as, “the flick of my wrist,” and “the way I hold my pencil.” (Sheehan pg. 412) The fact of the matter is that these emotions...

The Human Genome - Alcoholism

...has been believed that alcoholism runs down family lines, generation after generation. Is there scientific truth to this? Could the addiction be embedded in the human genome? John Crabbe and Justin Rhodes invite you to study their 10 years of research. Taking mice and making them alcohol-dependent, studying their human-like tendencies; alcohol tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, and voluntarily drinking alcohol and in some instances doing extra work for the tipple intoxicant. Using methods of genetic engineering, gene expression profiling and quantitative locus mapping, the two colleagues are equipped to haunt down the chromosome and location where alcoholism lay. With the genome being so outstandingly large, can a gene for alcoholism be merely pinpointed? After years of trying the scientists come closer then anyone before them, but it is Dr. Tamara J. Philips who furthers the journey and exploration. New strategies are needed to stop and treat this disease; a location in the genome is imminent upon us. For centuries, alcoholism has been destroying many lives. The act of an addiction to something as harmful has alcoholism demolished families, relationships, and one’s own body. Alcohol on average is responsible for 100,000 deaths in America per year, whether it is from drunk-driving accidents, health problems, or various others means (Harwood, 1992). Children of addicts often feel isolated or depressed, because they tend to think the problem with their addictive parent(s)...

Cyclohexane

...are an important part of organic chemistry. Although it is often possible to establish the structure of a compound on the basis of spectra alone (IR, NMR, etc.), the spectra typically must be supplemented with other information about the compound: physical state and properties (melting point, boiling point, solubility, odor, color, etc.), elemental analysis, and confirmatory tests for functional groups. In this experiment you will carry out several qualitative tests that will allow you to identify functional groups in organic molecules. You will then apply what you have learned by characterizing unknown organic compounds in terms of their functional group and solubility behavior. The functional groups you will examine include amines, alcohols, carboxylic acids, alkenes, alkanes, and alkyl halides. Solubility and Functional Group Tests Each functional group has a particular set of chemical properties that allow it to be identified. Some of these properties can be demonstrated by observing solubility behavior, while others can be seen in chemical reactions that are accompanied by color changes, precipitate formation, or other visible effects. 1. Solubility Tests The solubility of an organic compound in water, dilute acid, or dilute base can provide useful information about the presence or absence of certain functional groups. A flowchart showing the sequence of solubility tests along with the appropriate conclusions is shown in Figure 1. Solubility in...

Alcohol Industry

...around 373 million cases. (Source: Annual Report, Government of India, Ministry of Food Processing Industries). The Alcohol Industry in India can be divided into the following five categories: - 1. Industrial Alcohol 2. Potable Alcohol 3. Mixed Distilleries (Industrial and Potable Alcohol) 4. Bottling Plants (purchasing alcohol and bottling alcoholic beverages) 5. Distilleries producing alcohol from substrates other than molasses. In India, majority of distilleries manufacture alcohol from Sugar Cane Molasses compared to international trend of grain based (rice, wheat, millet, Barley, corn and oat) alcohol. In India, since alcohol is largely produced from sugarcane molasses, the industry is cyclical in nature, as sugarcane production itself is affected every 3-4 years due to monsoon and other factors, resulting in low availability of molasses. Alcohol industry is the second largest source of revenue of the State Exchequer – Rs.25, 000 cores. The Industry turnover is ~Rs.54,000 core (Source: Euro monitor International 2009). It is the only Industry where inputs are decontrolled (free market price) and output is controlled (selling price is determined by State Excise in most States). The Indian spirits market has grown rapidly owing to rapid economic growth, rising disposable incomes, favourable demographics and greater social acceptability of alcohol consumption in India. In particular, according to Euro monitor International 2009, the sales volume of spirits products...

Many young people are experiencing the consequences of drinking too much, at too early age as a result, at too early age as a result, underage drinking is a leading public health problem in this country. As children move from adolescent to young adulthood, they lifestyle changes, development transition, such as puberty and increasing independent, have been associated with alcohol use. So in a sense, just being an adolescent maybe a key risk factor not only for starting to drink but for drinking dangerously. Drinking at an early age has been associated with later alcoholism and drinking problems in several countries. This has led some people to believe that delaying the age at which young people first drink alcohol might reduce the later incidence of alcohol abuse and alcoholism. That might work if drinking at age actually causes subsequent alcohol problems. ¹ __________________________ ¹ Wikipedia free encyclopedia, internet ------------------------------------------------- However, there is growing evidence that early ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- drinking, in societies not permitting it, is not the cause, but ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- only a symptom of...

The word “alcohol” derives from Arabic al-kuhul and is applied to the many members of the family of alcohols. The type found in beverage alcohol is called ethanol or ethyl alcohol and is the result of the natural process of fermentation of fruits, grains, vegetables, plant matter, and even dairy products. Its three main classifications are wine, beer, and distilled spirits.

Social Learning and Adaptation

...us to understand (1) why different people react differently to the same drugs, (2) how people can modify these reactions through their own efforts, and (3) how people's relationships with their environments determine drug reactions rather than vice versa. Social-learning theorists have been especially active in alcoholism, where they have analyzed how alcoholics' expectations and beliefs about what alcohol will do for them influence the rewards and behaviors associated with drinking (Marlatt 1978; Wilson 1981). Yet it has also been social-learning theorists who have launched the alcohol-dependence syndrome and who seem to feel subjective interpretation is far less important than the pharmacological effects of alcohol in causing drinking problems (Hodgson et al. 1978, 1979). This lacuna in their theorizing is most noticeable in the inability of modem social-learning theorists to make sense out of cultural variations in drinking styles and experiences (Shaw 1979). Whereas McClelland et al. (1972) offered an experiential bridge between individual and cultural conceptions about alcohol (see chapter 5), behaviorists have regularly rejected this kind of synthesis in favor of direct observations and objective measurements of alcoholic...
