It is human nature to express hate for a person, food, or almost anything. However is hate a natural feeling such as love, or is it an acquired characteristic that we learn from our surroundings? We are born into the world not knowing how to react, feel, or express emotion. We learn to love our mothers or our favorite toy and to hate the feel of diaper rash or loud noises. Why is it that when we grow older we learn to turn love in passion and hate in pure loathe and rage. Perhaps it because love and hate is ultimately a feeling that evolves through experience of society In Andrew Sullivan’s New York Times Article “ What’s So Bad About Hate?” The question of whether making laws of morality should limit the personal rights and feelings of an individual are discussed and analyzed. In another New York Times Article Steven Pinker, “ The Moral Instinct”, the idea of how to measure ideas between right and wrong by looking at how decisions about morality are made and whether it is a natural tendency or a conditioned characteristic learned through development are discussed. These questions can be summarized as the main debate of whether hate is moral or immoral. In the past decade a few hate crimes that involved homophobia ( the suicide of Rutger’s student Tyler Clementi) and morals dealing with race and ethnicity ( the shooting of Trayvon Martin) are microcosms of hate and morality in general. When questioning the morality of hate the act of hatred or the person committing the act’s morals is discussed when deeming a hate as immoral.
The deep emotion of hate towards individuals, entities, objects, and ideas has been experienced by most human beings at some point in their lives. Andrew Sullivan states in his article “ What’s So Bad About Hate?” that “ Hate is everywhere. Human beings generalize all the time, ahead of time, about everyone and everything. A large…...

.... “goodness that gives each of us the sense that we are worthy human beings.” ( Pinker). It is what people rely on to tell the difference between right and wrong or what is consider injust. It is considered that people with a strong sense of morals become the people who make rational decisions in situations such as a doctor dealing with life or death, or sentencing a criminal in court. Judging the degrees of immorality could simply consider situations “out right immoral ( killing someone) or rather than merely disagreeable (“I hate brussels sprouts”), simply unfashionable (“bell-­ bottoms are out”) or imprudent (“don’t scratch mosquito bites”)”. (Pinker). In February 2012 a seventeen year old African American boy by the name of Trayvon Martian was shot to death by his neighbor George Zimmerman. ( ABC News). In a 911 call made that night it was recorded that Zimmerman uttered a “racial slur” describing Treyvon. Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder pleading not guilty and awaits trial. In an interview with Zimmerman, he stated that "I feel that it was all God's plan, and for me to second guess it or judge it," ( ABC News). When asked if he would have done anything differently he responded no. It is assumed that George Zimmerman’s morals are based with religion. However, the reaction of the public from the exploitation of the news automatically decided that Zimmerman’s actions were deemed immoral and that despite his religious values “ God would not have wanted......

Down Syndrome

...Down syndrome (DS) or Down's syndrome, also known as trisomy 21, is a chromosomal condition caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21.[1] Down syndrome is the most common chromosome abnormality in humans.[2] It is typically associated with a delay in cognitive ability (mental retardation, or MR) and physical growth, and a particular set of facial characteristics.[1] The average IQ of young adults with Down syndrome is around 50, compared to children without the condition with an IQ of 100.[1][3] (MR has historically been defined as an IQ below 70.) A large proportion of individuals with Down syndrome have a severe degree of intellectual disability.[1] Down syndrome is named after John Langdon Down, the British physician who described the syndrome in 1866.[4] The condition was clinically described earlier in the 19th century by Jean Etienne Dominique Esquirol in 1838 and Edouard Seguin in 1844.[5] Down syndrome was identified as a chromosome 21 trisomy by Dr. Jérôme Lejeune in 1959. Down syndrome can be identified in a baby at birth, or even before birth by prenatal screening.[1][6] Pregnancies with this diagnosis are often terminated.[7] The CDC estimates that about one of every 691 babies born in the United States each year is born with Down syndrome.[8] Many children with Down syndrome graduate from high school and can do paid work,[9] and some participate in post-secondary education as well.[10] Education and proper care has been......

...Malik Buckner Ms.Leuschel Survey of Literature 25 May 2010 Life with Down syndrome “ Down syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes mental retardation and physical it is caused by the presence of an extra copy of chromosome number 21” (“Down syndrome” par.1). Down syndrome is the most frequent genetic cause of mild to moderate intellectual and developmental, it occurs in out 1 of 800 births (“Down syndrome” par.1). The discovery of Down syndrome was in 1866 by Dr. John Langdon Haydon Down, who worked in an English hospital for mental disabilities. Dr. Down had notice that many of the people cared for in the hospital shared certain physical features that is related to Down syndrome. About 100 years later, a French scientist figured out it was genetics that caused the problem (“Thumbs up for Dr. Down” par. 1). Life with Down syndrome, physical and mental disability caused by extra chromosome, creates life challenges from birth to adulthood. Being born with Down syndrome is such challenge for new born babies. “During the early years of life children with Down syndrome are ten times more likely than other children to develop a potentially fatal disease…or defective development of the spinal cord” (“Infants and preschool children” par.21). About half of babies with Down syndrome are born with heart defects, which mean their hearts, grow differently and don’t work as they should usually, these problems can be fixed by surgery (“Down syndrome” par.3). “Kids with Down...

It affects about 1 in every 800 babies born in the United States. A person with Down syndrome has 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46. The physical features and medical problems can vary widely from child to child. While some kids with Down syndrome need a lot of medical attention, others live healthy land fulfilling lives. Every human being with Down syndrome has a widely recognized appearance, flattened nose, single crease in the palm of the hand, Small ears, small mouth, upward slanting eyes, and wide short hands with short fingers. The physical development of people with Down syndrome is often slower than normal. Most of the children who are born with this disorder never each their average adult height. They may also have delayed mental and social development. Some of the common problems include impulsive behavior, poor judgement, short attention span, and slow learning. In some cases, when children with Down syndrome become aware of their limitations they may feel frustrated and angry. Obesity can become a problem for older children and adults. Getting plenty of activity and avoiding high-calorie foods are important. Before beginning sports activities, the child's neck and hips should be examined. Behavioral training can help people with Down syndrome and their families deal with the frustration, anger, and......

Shake and Erupt

... volcanoes and earthquakes occur. The main aim of this was to settle the class as they entered the classroom before I made any introduction of who I was and what my expectations were. Also I wanted to assess what their reaction would be to such a dry and unimaginative activity. A large percentage of the class did protest in some way, by either complaining that their hand was hurting or by asking me if they had to write all the bullet points down. One of the problems with tasks such as this is that there a huge variance in how long students take to complete it which can be damaging to the pace of the lesson. I soon learnt that establishing a good pace at the beginning of a lesson is a crucial component of the overall success of the lesson. It was the next activity that produced the most success in this first lesson which was an open task that required the students to use their imagination and expressive skills after watching a short clip of the earth’s spatial history as it evolved from Pangaea to its current form and beyond to 250 million years into the future (also see appendix 3.) This video clip shows the change of Earth's tectonic plates over a 650 million years period in just over one minute. It is a particularly thought-provoking clip and portrays the dynamism of physical geography. The task was to write one sentence about what they liked about the clip and one sentence about what they did not like. It was precisely this ‘no wrong’ answer format with an open-ended......

An attempt to educate on the cause and what the disease is will be discussed and talked about. First of all what is Down syndrome? Down syndrome is according to (Web MD) is a set of physical and mental traits that are caused by a gene problem that happens before birth. In majority of children with this disease they inherit similar traits that cause them to resemble one another. They usually are short and stocky children and are to a certain degree have mental retardation traits also. There may be one in the crowd that barely has the full look or mental status. Yes, it is long term. It is not something you can just get rid of by taking medications. It is something you have to live with and deal with for the rest of your life. There are programs out there to help you cope if you are the patient or the family member. How do you get Down syndrome? Why does this happen? Some may think it is due to lack in prenatal vitamins during the pregnancy. That is not the case. It is caused by genetics and chromosomes which house and transport (DNA) in the body. (DNA) is what is used to determine the genetics of a person such as the color of their eyes, hair, or who they are related to and etc. It could be that having an extra chromosome can be one of the many unknown causes...

Slim Down

... students and unhappy teachers. But when actual numbers of students were specified, preferences became more flexible.4 “I think there’s not a problem if you increase the size four or five students but you don’t want to see it ten or fifteen students. You have to draw a line: Okay, we can put a few more in there but we don’t want it beyond this level.” —Fairfield, CT So we anchored the survey questions with specific numbers, twenty-two versus twentyseven students, to portray more concrete (and, in most places, more realistic) scenarios and intentionally pitted teacher quality against class size. A convincing 73 percent to 21 percent majority would rather have a larger class with twenty-seven students—provided it is “taught by one of the district’s best performing teachers”—than a smaller class with twenty-two HOW AMERICANS WOULD SLIM DOWN PUBLIC EDUCATION 16 students “taught by a randomly chosen teacher” (Figure 6). Focus group respondents tended to agree: “The teachers I remember were ones that inspired me, and it was relational. So I would rather have a teacher who’s passionate and great, and make the class a little bit larger, than to have a teacher who’s average.” —Los Angeles, CA “I would want to compare what teachers of the different subjects are doing, like, how do our math scores compare, and who are those teachers? How do our history scores compare, and who are those teachers? Find the better ones—two, three, four, five—and if it came down to laying......

Earthquake -Shake, Rattle, & Roll

...“Earthquake - Shake, Rattle, & Roll” Submitted by: Dana Peebles For Instructor: Stephen Underwood July 14, 2014 PHSC 210-A02 Liberty University Online Elements of Earth Science   I. Introduction Music can be calming and even sometimes relaxing. However, the only music that might describe an earthquake, would be the song “Shake, Rattle, and Roll”. The very nature of earthquakes cause us to get anxious, and there is nothing calming about the “earth moving under your feet.” In this short report, I will be giving a general overview of how earthquakes are formed and what causes them. I will also discuss the methods that seismologist use to study these occurrences. As humans, curiosity can get the best of us. This curiosity causes us to ask questions and seek further discoveries as to why these events happen. In addition, I will also talk about the new inquiries concerning earthquakes and what leads up to these questions that may still be unanswered. II. General Overview To understand how earthquakes form, what causes them, and the components that make it up, one must know exactly what an earthquake is. Webster’s Dictionary states that an earthquake is the “shaking or trembling of the earth that is volcanic or tectonic in origin.” While this describes the movement and the cause, it doesn’t describe why. Earthquakes happen when the underground rock immediately burst against the fault. This activity causes seismic waves that travel along the earth’s...

... lose 10 to 40 gallons of milk every night and that did not seem to bother them. The company did not even know about this undesired loses due to the lack of inventory control system. The company did not have any safety and quality control management system for the raw materials before they were used in production. Sometimes maggots used to enter into the bags of the raw materials in the warehouse and they used to show up in the production mix. The company did not have a night shift supervisor or manager to guide the employees to the right direction. This was another component of the total problem that was observed in this case study. Loar (1992) studied the inventory management system used by 4 different industries including the food industry and described how the inventory management practices were used as a strategic tool by the companies. According to the author Loar (1992), money was cheap before 1970s so the companies used to carry excessive inventory to compensate for the defects that they produced or the variances in procurement, manufacturing, and distribution but after 1970s borrowing money started to get expensive and financial investment in inventories became a major issue in cost for production. The companies started to focus on technology which became available and affordable to track down the problems associated with uncertainty and variances. In order to perform the study the author formulated a set of questionnaire that were focused to answer...

Down-Syndrme

...Kimberly Douglas Dec 3 2014 Genetics Down Syndrome Down syndrome (DS) or Trisomy 21 is a complex developmental genetic disorder in which a person has 47 chromosomes instead of 46. Normally, a fertilized egg has 23 pairs of chromosomes. But in most cases, people living with Down syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21 also known as Trisomy 21, which is responsible for 95% Down syndrome cases and most common genetic cause of human mental retardation, with an incidence of 1-600/1-1000 live births. It is also responsible for premature pregnancy failure. It is the leading cause of cognitive impairment. Down syndrome occurs because of an abnormality characterized by an extra copy of genetic material on all or part of the 21st chromosome. Every cell in the body contains genes that are grouped along chromosomes in the cell's nucleus or center. There are normally 46 chromosomes in each cell, 23 inherited from your mother and 23 from your father. When some or all of a person's cells have an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21, the result is Down syndrome. Down syndrome is associated with mild to moderate learning disabilities, developmental delays, characteristic facial features, and low muscle tone in early infancy. Many individuals with Down syndrome also have heart defects, leukemia, early-onset Alzheimer's disease, gastro-intestinal problems, and other health issues. The symptoms of Down syndrome range from mild to severe. Life expectancy for individuals...
