The process of cloning - which emerged in the late twentieth century - is considered a huge scientific revolution led to much debates, consultations and discussions. Cloning is the process of producing objects or new organs have the same qualities and characteristics by cloning DNA. Cloning has appeared for the first time in 1997 after Scottish scientists cloned Dolly sheep, which has received with great interest by most of the medical and scientific international organizations at the level of the
The End of Extinction? Scientists are close to cloning an Australian frog that no longer exists. S cientists around the world are at work to resurrect extinct animals such as the Australian gastric brooding frog. Australian researches have made major steps towards bringing frog that was extinct in 1983 back to life. Although the procedure of de-extinction is much more complex than cloning living animals. A group of scientists (Lazarus Project team) believe humans have the skill and obligation
research involved in human cloning, scientists may be able to unlock the mysteries of genetic diseases, and perhaps lead us to new discoveries concerning the human body. As a result of their research into the genetics of human cloning, scientists are hoping that some day they will find the cure for cancer, diabetes, and possibly Parkinson’s disease. Furthermore, the pursuit of human cloning research may also include other amazing scientific experiments such as cloning proteins from various types
the debate about GE goes back much further. It was first popularised by Aldous Huxley in his novel Brave New World (1932), in which humans are born in bottles ('test tube babies'), and genetically conditioned to think and behave in certain ways. When GE became a scientific reality in the 1970s, the debate continued to focus largely on the mainulation of human genes, following the trend set by Huxley. (See, for example, Karp, 1976, Howard and Rifkin, 1977, the former in favour of GE, the
seen glimpses of the results of modifying evolution and natural human development. In the first half of this century, a field of science called eugenics was developed, in which scientists believed the human race could be improved by controlled breeding, selecting certain traits such as "intelligence." Based on the rise of social Darwinism in the late nineteenth century, the international eugenics movement peaked from 1910 to 1933. Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859.
Scientists classify species into six different groups: plants, animals, insects, algae, fungi, and microorganisms (Today’s Situation). In the tropical rainforest alone, most species are disappearing at the rate of 1% a year (Sherry, 6). If the current trend continues, at least 50% of all currently existing species will be either extinct or endangered by the year 2050 (Today’s Situation). For this reason endangered species deserve more protection than the current regulations provide. Throughout history
a collective process through which sovereign national states are criss-crossed and undermined by transnational actors with varying prospects of power, orientations, identities and networks (Beck 2000: p.10).. Globalization is known today as the new system of interaction among the contemporary society of the world in order to develop the global economy, technology, political and cultural exchanges. However, this is noted to be possible largely by advances in communication, transportation, and infrastructure
be bound because injunctions against originality would lead to the oppression of mankind's most important resource, our thinkers. But scientists themselves should be bound by foresight. At the inception of a new idea or process, bodies of scientists should review the question before the new methods have been applied. They should try to foresee possible ill effects and seek to minimize these beforehand, and contain them afterwards. This would have come in handy for Victor Frankenstein.

This will transform and redefine the human life cycle". http://www.wfs.org/2005soc.htm But we don't need to wait to realise changes in trends that are already part of our society: · Individuality
Implications for Family Therapists In the last third of the twentieth century, the nuclear family formed around marital ties and a strict division of labor based on gender, has changed to a multiple types of kinship relations. The word that best defines today's family, is the diversity, since the family now has a unique and exclusive meaning, including single-parent families and families consisting of same sex couples (Walsh, 2011). This new (or as some argue , renewed ) diversity of family forms has generated
