How Dogs Are More Loyal Than Humans - ... (Harroway,304) It seems more likely that domestication was gradual with incentives for both humans and dogs. Dogs were given easy access to food and humans gained a companion animal that could assist in tasks such as herding, hunting, and protection. (Harroway, 305) Why is this important. As humans we probably like to think that we tamed the wild beast, but dogs may have played a part in their original domestication. Dogs entered into a relationship with humans that benefited both parties, and they've been holding up their end of the bargain....   [tags: Pets]

For example, they found that, for adult learners (age 18 to 40), the age at which they began learning their second language was not as important as their ability to grasp and function within the language – which is largely a factor of education and motivation, rather than an age-related effect. Con Side Hakuta, Bialystok and Wiley (2003) assert that a theory of a critical period of language learning should be based on the ideas that there are periods of development when the brain is better suited to learning language, and that, outside of that period, learners will not be able to reach the same level of proficiency as learners within the critical period....   [tags: Language ]

Animal Experimentation is Necessary -      A contingent of those against the dog labs at the university protested last month, waving signs that read, "Kill. Heal. What's It Gonna Be?" and "The U Kills Dogs."  A fairly recent article in the Washington Post ("A Terminal Learning Environment"; Nov.  5, 2000) manages to move beyond the emotion and sloganeering used by these protesters to some of the real arguments of those in opposition; that the dog labs are "cruel, unnecessary and a waste of money" and that they "should be eliminated."1   However, the arguments used by the Washington Post (and ultimately, those in opposition) are insufficient to justify the termination of the dog labs at university.  The claim that the dog labs are cruel to the animals is unsubstantiated and inaccurate.  The claim that the labs are unnecessary is a falsity, as alternatives are not as beneficial as the vivisection labs.  Finally, the argument that the labs are a waste of money is an ill-researched, erroneous depiction of the real circumstances....   [tags: Argumentative, Synthesis Essay Examples]
