Point and Counterpoint: Abortion and Alternatives - Article 13, for Sunday, July 2, 2006
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY - A SEQUEL

THE GOOD:
· Louisiana Senate Committee backs a bill requiring that women planning an abortion be told of a baby's pain during abortion.
· The AMA votes to promote Living Wills after the Schiavo exkperience.
· Pro-Life organizations petition U.S. Bishops to become more assertive regarding pro-abortion "Catholic" politicians and their continued access to Holy Communion.
· The Vatican this week applauded the actions of doctors who kept a brain-dead pregnant woman in Italy alive until the baby was delivered.
· A Federal Appeals Court has supported the right of Pro-Life groups to join an abortion "conscience clause" case regarding medical personnel.
· A new book published in Italy provides more evidence that RU 486 is unsafe for women.
· In Missouri, Pro-Life advocates have filed suit over the State's denial of use of "Choose Life" auto license plates. This issue is also alive in Connecticut, currently in the hands of Attorney General.

THE BAD:
· Planned Parenthood has announced that it will use its political power for the benefit of Pro-Abortion candidates. This group performs the gretest number of abortions in the U.S., and has sold over one million "morning after pills". There is a message here for all of us who send charitable contributions either to PP or to organizations that support PP.
· There are too many examples of State governmental, non-governmental and private actions that are pro-abortion, anti-parental role, pro-embryonic cell research, anti-Catholic, and pro-euthanasia to highlight here. But the pro-abortionists are increasingly active, especially in an election cycle.

THE UGLY:
· A California bill to legalize assisted suicide gets a hearing next week.
· Germany, the host nation of this year's World Cup, legalized prostitution in 2002. Thus, in Germany any woman under 55 who remains out of work for one year while receiving unemployment compensation is forced to take any job...including prostitution...on pain of losing her benefits. I kid you not.
· Bishops in Switzerland are decrying the creation of babies solely for medical purposes, the latest form of eugenics. One case involves a baby conceived in Brussles through artificial insemination for the specific purpose of being a compatible blood marrow donor for her sick brother. Human beings as merchandise.
Why is all this important? Because Abortion is an advanced cancer weakening our nation's political life and future. And because each of us has an active role to play, armed with the information provided here and elsewhere. And that goes for the organized Church also, which has too often been intimidated by IRS cautions that prohibit support of specific candidates, but not expressions and teachings of principles like pro-life / anti abortion. So, all of this effort is a call to action. You are being given the facts...now do something. Make your voices heard.

Environmental Study

...INTRODUCTION Our ecosystem shows interaction between different organisms. Every living organism has a vital role in functioning of ecosystem. Three most common participants in the ecosystem are Plants, Insects and Birds. The common birds that are found in my locality are cuckoo, common house sparrow, parrot, eagle, owl and blue rock pigeon. The common plants that are found in our area are tamarind, gulmohar, papaya, tulsi, neem, banyan, and banana. The common insects that are found are earthworms, caterpillars, butterflies, housefly, dragon flies, ants, cockroach, mosquitoes, grasshopper, ladybug, honeybee and spiders. Grass is eaten by insects which are in turn eaten by birds. This represents a food chain. Plants provide a home for birds and insects provide food for birds. In other words birds are associated with plants and feed on insects - insects feed on plants and are preyed upon by birds. Apart from these two way associations there also exists an intriguing three way association among birds, plants and insects. PLANTS Plants are one of five big groups (kingdoms) of living things. Plants include familiar types such as trees, herbs, bushes, grasses, vines, ferns, mosses, and green algae. The scientific study of plants is known as botany. A plant needs sunlight, carbon dioxide, minerals and water to make food. A green substance in plants called chlorophyll traps the energy from the Sun needed to make food. Chlorophyll is mostly found in leaves. Following are......

Also interesting is the worlds biggest recorded pallasite was found in Kansas. Kansas was named after the Native American word Kanza, meaning “people of the south wind.” The people of Kansas were considering whether or not Kansas should become a slave state. There was such a balance of opinion that it took four attempts at writing a constitution by congress. The battle raged on often needing the help of federal troops. In 1850 the people of Kansas approved a constitution prohibiting slavery. The senate’s refusal to admit Kansas as a state, the issue exploded into a national political problem. In order to be admitted there had to be a big shift in power in the senate and the presidency. It wasn’t until January 29, 1861 that the constitution making Kansas the 34th state reached President James Buchanan’s desk and was signed. This January we will celebrate the 150th birthday of Kansas. Home on the range, the state song of Kansas, was originally a poem called My Western Home by Dr. Brewster M. Higley near 1872. The music was written by a friend of Higleys named Daniel E. Kelly. It was officially adopted as the state song of Kansas on June 30, 1947. In 1925 the Kansas Auburn Society conducted a contest in which the school children of Kansas voted on what bird that they wished to become the state bird. The western......

In Indonesia, a dog is known to bark guk guk, in Catalan it barks bup bup, while in Albania it barks ham ham. A Japanese dog, in turn, barks wanwan, while its counterpart in England barks bow-wow or woof.

 Pigs also have different sounds depending on where you are in the world. A Mandarin Chinese pig goes hu-lu hu-lu, while further up north in Finland it goes roh roh. Next door in Sweden, a pig goes noff noff, while in Wales it goes soch soch. In the English world, a pig goes oink oink.

 Bird sounds also vary around the world. In English, a small bird chirps while a medium-sized bird tweets. A larger bird, however, squawks. In Spanish, a bird goes pio pio, while in Korea it will be heard going jek jek. In French? Pit pit. Although animals sound the same the world over, humans, with our many languages, do not. Different human societies simply have different ways of describing similar sounds. Part of it is explained by the speech sounds used in a particular language. Another part by random choice –......

Scientific Taxonomy and Earth's Biodiversity

...and reproduce sexually. Research will be done on two mammals, two insects, two birds and two fish. This research will show just how diverse the Earth is. Mammals: Zebras and Rabbits Zebras and rabbits belong to the Animal Kingdom; however, they belong to different orders. The zebra belongs to the Perissodactyla order because they have hooves. Horses and donkeys belong to the same order as the zebra. The rabbit belongs to the lagomorpha order because they have long ears and they have four teeth on the upper jaw. Hares and pikas also belong to the same order as the rabbit. There are some similarities and differences in characteristics when it comes to the zebra and the rabbit. The two things they have in common would be that they both graze on grass for food and they both reproduce sexually. One difference would be their appearance. Rabbits are small and come in other colors. Zebras are rather large and have black and white stripes all over their body. Another difference would be that rabbits move by hoping, whereas the zebra moves by walking. The two are so different, yet alike. Insects: Butterfly and Bumble Bees Both the butterfly and the bumble bee belong to the Animalia kingdom, yet different orders. The butterfly is a member of the Lepidoptera order because of the scales that cover their body and wings. Moths and skippers are also members of this group. The bumble bee is a member of the Hymenoptera order because of its heavy wings. Wasps......

The Atlantic, 14 July 2011. Web. 11 Nov. 2013. Niman expressed concerns regarding the decline in the bee population and what the decline in bees will do to pollination and plant production; this is becoming an alarming issue. Niman explained in her article A Way to Save America's Bees: Buy Free-Range Beef, states that the preservation of rangeland are not only a more human way to farm livestock but it has significant economic value for farms that need pollinators such as bees. Niman’s findings was based on study from the University of California Berkley, it was found that grazing lands provide critical habitats for wild bees and other pollinators. The declining bee population is a concern in today’s environment. Bees are the main pollinators of plants. When the bee population dwindle so do plants, vegetation and trees life; what would happen to our environment and eventually our world without vegetation and plant life? There will be no life.

A Closer Look at the Work of Dh Lawrence

...suspected they would. She is telling him that he needs to cut off this attatchment to her. In Shades Of Spring his wife's past is unveiled before him revealing the reason for her distance and coldness towards him, and also a women he did not see before. He feels she does not take him seriously. She is polite but distant and cold towards him. He is 'The Stag At Bay' that he observes in the painting in the living room. Lawrence consistently uses birds in his writing and the key to understanding their role in each story is to pay attention to the action the birds are taking. A bird is a messenger, and the soul is often depicted being carried by birds or with wings itself. Why does Lawrence use so many varieties of birds to tell a story? Odour of Chrysanthemums introduces their message in the beginning. Fowls have moved into the fowl house signaling the coldness of winter is near. The word, fowl, as it stands alone brings to mind everything one represses, tries to push back into the dark boggy places in ourselves. The birds are picking at the scarlet hips, these are the messengers of death, from under the withered oak leaves. Right away we get an uneasy feeling. You may argue that the literal interpretation of a word is too crude for use in literature, but this makes for easy reading. The suggestion of these words ,simple as they are, are passed over easily by the conscious mind so as to play on the readers natural association with the words without disturbing the......

...There are many American expressions about insects --like bees, for example. Bees are known as very hardworkers. They always appear to be busy, moving around their homes, or hives. So you might say you were “as busy as a bee” if you spent your weekend cleaning your house. In fact, you might say your house was “a beehive of activity” if your whole family washelping you clean.  You also might say you “made a beeline” for something if you went there right away. When we go to see a movie, my friend always “makes a beeline” for the place where they sell popcorn.   Here is an expression about bees that is not used much anymore, but we like it anyway. We think it was first used in the 1920s. If something was the best of its kind, you might say it was “the bee’s knees.” Now, we admit that we do not know how this expression developed -- in fact, we do not even know if bees have knees! If your friend cannot stop talking about somethingbecause she thinks it is important, you might say she has “a bee in her bonnet.” If someone asks you apersonal question, you might say “That is none of your beeswax.” This means “none of your business.”   Speaking of personal questions, there is an expression people sometimes use when their children ask, “Wheredo babies come from?” Parents who discuss sex andreproduction say this is talking about “the birds and the bees.” Hornets are beelike insects that sometimes attackpeople. If you are really angry, you might say you are “mad as a hornet.”......

...from Genyo and we do not just hold it to students but also for the Faculty. And it is one of the highly anticipated contests in the faculty. We started with the faculty and like the speaking contests we started really behind the schedule but thanks for the patience and support of the teachers we still finished the contest. The winners for the faculty challenge are: Mr. Ivan Manela – second placer, Ms. Jan Nicole Iglesias – first placer and the champion for this year is Ms. Jennifer Ancheta. For the students we started with the higher levels (grade 9 and Year IV) and the seniors dominated the activity and for the second round (grade 7 and 8), the sophomores dominated the contest. The last activity that we had is G-L-S Bee or Grammar-Literature and Spelling Bee. Basically it’s a combination of different questions about grammar, literature and spelling. Well, we had 6 groups namely: Odysseus, Perseus, Achilles, Jason, Hector, Bellerophon and Hercules, all taken from Greek mythology. The contest went smoothly and it was held on Genyo laboratory. All in all the English month for this year was a success. We learned a lot of things and quite frankly it’s not easy. But I can confidently say that the students actually personified the theme. It was really fulfilling though it’s really hard to come up with everything.

Ecology Lab Report 2 Scientific Method on Birds

...Ecology Lab 2 scientific method of birds In today’s lab we learned about the scientific method and a hypothesis. We talked about how ecologists have an issue when experimenting because they cannot control some environmental factors. Therefore the probability of repeatability in an ecological experiment in often minimal. We then went into talking about the importance of an experimenter’s hypothesis. We summed up a hypothesis as just being an assumption that could be put to the test. After we talked about some examples of a hypothesis we went into talking about the different types of research. For my two experiments in today’s lab I used natural experiments. A natural experiment is one of the most relevant types of experiments an ecologist can use because it occurs in a natural setting and is not repeatable. In today’s lab I am hoping to make a hypothesis that I could provide a lot of testable data and variables. For the first part of a lab we were told to select a partner and draw an ecological topic to make a hypothesis on. Ben and I selected animal and plant association. For the other part of toady’s lab we were told to choose our own ecological topic and develop a hypothesis. Animals frequently visit certain plants that the insects they eat are around. Blue birds hang around my garden because they like to eat the beetles that are around the tomato plants. For plant and animal association my partner and I came up with a hypothesis that bees are around flowers more than......

...understands the urgent and real need for healthy bees as pollinators for food production. We are actively seeking new and improved solutions to improve honey bee health. • To ensure the ongoing healthy status of our bees we strictly limit crop protection products and specifically curtail unnecessary chemical pest treatments which could hurt the health or affect the growth of healthy bees. We only use crop protection products that are effective in managing pests, excellent operator safety with relatively favourable environmental profiles. • Scientists and health regulatory authorities agree that bee health is a complex issue especially as in recent times it has been put forward that bee populations are on the incline. The need to be resolute and proactive in management practices is even more important now. Such is the delicate balance we strive to manage all factors including pests and parasites, microbial diseases, inadequate diet and climate change whereas we can make a difference. • In normal bee lifecycle during the summer season. Approximately 2200 worker bees may leave the hive to perish naturally. This is due to the average lifespan worker bees enjoy of four to six weeks. The expired bees are replaced daily by newly-hatched bees, thus ensuring the ongoing health of a rejuvenated bee colony. • Due to the delicate nature that is Bee farming and sustaining healthy honey production and its direct impact on our stakeholders, we have listed the following as a......

Brain Development

...INTRODUCTION The human brain is a complex organ that begins to grow and develop at just four weeks prenatal and continues on changing and developing until a person’s death (Boyd & Bee, 2012). A person’s heredity and genes play a part in this development however a person’s experience also shapes the development of the brain. The age old debate of nature verse nurture can be applied to brain development. The following discussion will take the reader on a journey through the development of the brain from its prenatal development to its development in old age. The reader will see that it is the combination of both genes and the environment which shapes the brain. The report will show that both nature and nurture are required to develop a healthy brain. DISCUSSION The human brain is set apart from other animal in its ability relay thoughts and mental states including desires, ideas, and intentions to other individuals. This concept is referred to as theory of mind and to date has not been seen in any other animal (Harmony, 2008). The question is what shapes the brain? Is it shaped by a person’s genes or is it the environment that person lives in. The answer is both. The human brain needs both genes and experience in order to develop healthily and to its fullest potential. Brain Development Prenatal The human brain begins to development well before birth. By the sixth week of pregnancy, an embryo’s brain is able to move in response to stimuli and by week eight the brain......

Holy Lives

...Holy Lives If you put a buzzard in a pen six or eight feet square and entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of his ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of ten or twelve feet. Without space to run, as is his habit, he will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top. The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle around helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash. A Bumblebee if dropped into an open tumbler will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exist, until it completely destroys itself. In many ways, there are a lot of people like the buzzard, the bat, and the bee. They are struggling about with all their problems and frustrations, trials and tribulations, heart-breaks and head-aches...stressed out, strung out and on the verge of giving out, not realizing that the power of God to withstand every situation is inherent within you and the answer to life's most difficult problems is just above you........

Pesticides and Their Place in Modern Life

...audience to the problem. And she did it successfully. Published in 1962, Silent Spring became a cornerstone of modern environmentalism and spurred changes to the laws. First, on an example of imaginary town, Carson showed a world without pesticides, where “ all life seemed to live in harmony with its surrounding”(469). Farms were prosperous, fields were full of grain, and orchards bloomed. Streams flowed clear water and had abundance of fish. Woods and roadsides were places of beauty with variety of birds, berries, fens, wildflowers, and other vegetation.“ So it had been from the days many years ago”(Carson, 469). Then the author showed how dramatically life changed after a mysterious white powder (pesticides) was sprayed over the area. Instead of prosperity, illness and death came to the farms. Chicken, cattle, and sheep sickened and died. There were almost no offspring, “ the young survived only a few days”(470). Woods that had once throbbed with bird voices were silent now. Birds had gone. The roadsides lined with withered vegetation, and the fish died in the streams. Much illness and several unexplained deaths came to farmers families. “The people had done it to themselves”, pointed out Carson(470). She thought that people should be aware about the health issues of pesticide use and asserted that “this imaginary tragedy may easily become a stark reality we all shall know”(470). This essay shows that natural order is fragile, and reckless use of man-made chemicals......
