Microchip Implant Technology is defined as an identifying integrated circuit placed under the skin of a dog, cat, horse, parrot or other animal. The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, uses passive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. This device may appear innocent on the surface but as we take a deeper look into the subject the demons reveal themselves. I do not feel it is necessary or ethical to track humans with this form of technology. There has been much controversy
We Can But Should We? How far is going too far? Imagine a world where an individual’s complete and accurate medical history can be accessed and updated by simply scanning a microchip or radio frequency identification device (RFID) that is implanted into the body. Envision a patient arriving at point-of-care; the chip that is embedding into the patient’s body would be scanned to upload the patients’ health information into the providers’ health information system (HIS). During this encounter,
humans. A few of the drugs passed from animals, were detrimental to humans. For example, a arthritis drug tested on mice, seemed to protect their hearts, but when used on humans, it was the cause of heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths (“12 Pros and Cons”). Even when some drugs are passed, they show some side effects that were not shown during the test trial. Animals have been used to help the “war on cancer”, but the tests haven’t transferred from humans to animals. The former head of the National
Microchips exist everywhere in our society, and are used by everyone at anytime. Today’s technology is so advance that even a tiny microchip can trace someone’s track. When you are using your cellphone with the GPS system, have you realize that you are being monitored for 24/7 by someone you have never met before in your whole life? Nowadays, Radio-Frequency Identification, also known as RFID tags, are commonly used by corporations as a tool on product tracking. They claim that the purpose of the

I also help with Humane Education, which involves speaking with groups about animal care. I know there are pros and cons to working in a shelter. In the paragraphs below I will evaluate the shelter setting and decide if this is where I feel most fulfilled. One aspect I enjoy about a shelter is the changing atmosphere. Each time I’m there a new experience will arise

The 1960's brought new advancements for all of Earth. Machines and men were sent into space, and this sparked a new government agency, called NASA. Space was a new frontier, and virtually everyone was interested in exploring it. Over the years, the interest in space exploration has weakened, and NASA was almost terminated from existence, although there have been many advancements in it over that time. Space exploration should continue because it could help solve many problems on Earth, such as
