Several sources from the scientific community have observed this phenomenon and agree that something must be done to slow the rate of resistance (Allen et al. 251; Emanuele 363; United States 1-2). There are a number of factors when considering the main causes of antibiotic resistance. One of those factors, evolution, is beyond the control of even the most brilliant of scientists; Heather Allen, along with her colleagues, in the article “Call of the Wild” reinforces this when they state that the “studies of antibiotic resistance in soil show that environmental bacteria harbour antibiotic resistance genes independently of human activities” (254)....   [tags: Medical Research]

United Students Against Sweatshops - United Students Against Sweatshops Sweatshops are an issue in today’s society, although their existence is often times hidden from the public’s eye. As the well known author Berry states, “ most of us get all the things we need by buying them and most of us know only vaguely, if at all, where those things came from; and most of us know not at all what damage is involved in their production. We are almost entirely dependent on an economy of which we are almost entirely ignorant.” How many of you know where the clothes you are buying come from....   [tags: Sweatshops Underpaid Child Labor Essays] 1444 words

Against Capital Punishment - “At 8:00 p.m. it was nearing the end of John Evans’ last day on death row. He had spent most of the day with his minister and family, praying and talking of what was to come.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) members believe that it is their constitutional right to own guns, stating that guns are not the root of the crime problem in the United States.

An Argument Against Gun Control - A proposed federal law to outlaw all guns would be more effective at disarming law-abiding citizens than at disarming the criminals who abuse them. If guns were outlawed, the criminals would not stop carrying guns, but the good, law-abiding citizens would. It would do nothing about the illegally obtained handguns in the possession of criminals. In The NRA is Right, Josh Sugarmann states that “One tenet of the National Rifle Association’s faith has always been that handgun controls do little to stop criminals from obtaining handguns” (Sugarmann 185)....   [tags: Second Amendment The Right To Bear Arms] 900 words

The Case Against The Death Penalty - THE CASE AGAINST THE DEATH PENALTY It's dark and cold, the fortress-like building has cinderblock walls, and death lurks around the perimeter. A man will die tonight. Under the blue sky, small black birds gather outside the fence that surrounds the building to flaunt their freedom. There is a gothic feel to the scene, as though you have stepped into a horror movie. Unfortunately, this is not a scene in a horror flick; these are the surroundings of an actual prison execution.

Arguments Against Legalized Euthanasia - The way "a person goes through the process of dying and accepts death is closely related to the way the person's society and culture view the process. A person's family, cultural values, social and medical institutions are all factors that form part of the context in which individuals die" (Dickinson and Leming 13). In past years, death was an accepted and natural part of life. Unlike today, death was common to occur at home with family and friends present. Advances in health, medicine and medical technology, however, have reduced people's contact with death....   [tags: argumentative, persuasive] 1139 words

No Chance Against Society - No Chance Against Society Throughout this world of unique individuals, the majority of human beings have generally conformed into different societal norms that follow one path and one dream without stopping to think of an alternative path. Complications step in front of individual prosperity and these obstacles spring from the pressures of the popular society. Within the short story, "A Hunger Artist", by Franz Kafka, the author proves and disproves a point best stated by Robin George Collinwood, that; "Perfect freedom is reserved for the man who lives by his own work and in that work, does what he wants to do." The protagonist, within this short story, freely chooses his career path as a hunger artist, but as the story continues, the audience begins to see that it is not as much an admired profession as it is a tool to gain fame and satisfaction through the act of suffering....   [tags: Personal Essays] 699 words

Against the War On Drugs in America - The Case Against America’s War on Drugs The legal prohibition on most psychoactive drugs has been in place in this country for the better part of a century. This policy of prohibition, however, has never been based on reason or careful consideration, but on the paranoia of a small segment of society and the indifferent willingness of the majority to accept this vocal minority’s claims without question. Outlawing any use of a particular drug is a violation of the basic freedom of individuals to act as they please in their private lives....   [tags: Legalize Narcotics Drug]
