Food Ethics: Should Environmentalists Oppose Genetically Modified Food? - I will argue that environmentalists should not oppose genetically modified foods. Genetically modified foods or GMOs (genetically-modified organisms) are crop plants that are modified in a laboratory to enhance desired traits, to offer greater yields, to improve pest and disease resistance, to increase nutrition, or to boost tolerance to temperature extremes, drought, and salinity (The Hutchinson Encyclopedia with Atlas and Weather Guide). This controversial concept has been debated among environmental activists, public interest groups, and other scientists and government officials since GMOs were introduced in 1996....   [tags: crop plants, nutrition, agriculture, GMO]

Part of TDD with VB - Traditionally, testing has often been an afterthought in software development. Frequently, it was done at—or near—the end of the development cycle. In addition, it was typically the “junior developers” who were tasked with going through the application, testing everything.

Into this mix, a number of developers began to use a new method that became known as test-driven development (TDD)....   [tags: Software Development] 959 words
