However, in a study conducted by Manhattan veterinarians, Drs. Wayne Whitney and Cheryl Mehlhaff, it was discovered that out of 115 cases of cats falling (accidentally) from multi-story heights, 90% of them survived. An even more surprising result is that if a cat falls from more than 7 stories its chance of survival doubles, compared to a cat having fallen from 2 to 7 stories (a story averages about 12 feet)....   [tags: physics cat cats fall land feet] 1230 words

Cliches - “If you study balls to the wall from now on, you just might pass this class”- said my roommate when he saw me studying for the Financial Statement Analysis course, “Professor is a real ball breaker.” When I heard that phrase, I assumed he was referring to testicles, but in fact he wasn’t. Balls to the wall means to push to the limit, go all out, full speed. This is a very colorful phrase; one needs to be careful when using it.

The Horrors of Animal Euthanasia - The Horrors of Animal Euthanasia     Due to the domestication of cats and dogs their populations have skyrocketed. This is due in part to the lack of pet owners acting in a responsible manner. These responsibilities include the spaying and neutering of  pets. These numbers of homeless animals in communities have caused humane societies to euthanize too many animals. This, I feel is a violation to animal rights and is a cruel way for these animals to have to leave this world. I disagree with the activists who believe that the way to keep animal populations down is to euthanize these poor animals....   [tags: Euthanasia Physician Assisted Suicide]

One of the most controversial aspects of this method was the use of animals to portray different races of people.
