For many centuries, humanity has been on an eternal quest for cures and treatments for many chronic conditions. At the present time, conventional medicine is mostly performed by doctors and other health care professionals, with the extensive use of pharmaceutical drugs, surgery or radiation treatments for disease treatment. Conversely, even though not as popular, complementary and alternative medicine and treatment options are slowly gaining popularity and becoming an addition to traditional medicine.
...ure anesthesia, auricular needling is often used. By stimulating sensory receptors at auricular points, signals inputted into the body are transmitted through the trigeminal lemniscuses instead of the spinal cord. There were studies demonstrated anterior and posterior portions of the nucleus of spinal tract of trigeminal nerve had similar feedback effects to the gate system in the posterior horn of spinal cord, which could be used to modulate transmissions of pain impulses. This might be able to explain why auricular acupuncture has analgesia effects on surgical or painful irritation on the head and face. However, anesthesia effects of auricular acupuncture during thoracic and abdominal surgeries cannot be explained by any hypotheses about the gate control occurring at either posterior horns of the spinal cord or the nucleus of spinal tract of trigeminal nerve .
Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird portrayed an era of extreme prejudice and ignorance. Throughout the novel, these specific characteristics were noticed in the behavior of Maycomb’s residents, especially during the trial of Tom Robinson – a highly publicized court case involving a black man convicted of raping a white girl from a despicable family. Although it became obvious throughout the trial that Robinson was innocent, and the girl’s father was the real culprit, Tom Robinson was convicted mainly due to social prejudice toward his race. The unjust result of this trial deeply disturbed the main characters of the novel: Scout and Jem, the children of the defense attorney of the trial, Atticus Finch. Since the story took place in the 1930s, racism was still widely accepted in society, and most of the residents in Maycomb openly professed their derogatory views on people of a different race or social standard. Growing up in a family that believed in egalitarianism, Scout and Jem faced backlash from the community since their father was fighting for a black man in the Tom Robinson trial. Amid these two highly conflicting environments, Scout and Jem had many unanswered questions and no support in the community during these tough times. Additionally, the Maycomb community was plagued with injustice due to discrimination and racism. However, there was one character in the novel who remained open-minded and unprejudiced even in the face of tradition and communal ignorance. A close neighbor of the Finch’s, who shared the same moral views as Atticus, Miss Maudie served as a mother figure to young Scout and Jem, who were going through a tough time in the community. Although Miss Maudie may not have had enough power to change the prejudice...
The first time Scout was exposed to the racism of Maycomb was when one evening Atticus crept out of the house. This was unusual because Atticus never went out late at night. Scout and Jem, curious about why Atticus had left incognito, followed him discretely to see what he would do. What they actually saw him doing was a bewilderment, they saw him reclining in front of Tom Robinsons cell, guarding Tom from an oncoming lynch mob. When the mob arrived at the jail, Scout portrayed a large amount of danger on herself when she put herself in the middle of the argument. Atticus stated later “a mob’s always made of people, no matter what. Mr. Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he was still a man.” After Scout intercepted the argument, she pointed out Mr.Cunningham and started delineated his son and fellow classmate; Walter. Mr.Cunningham’s eyes were now blinded by the sentimentality that Scout purp...
...eeds and constraints. Research and development is underway to provide non-syringe delivery mechanisms and thermostable vaccines that will make the vaccines less expensive, more effective and much easier for the manufacturer to deliver. Research will help in achieving the understanding of the adverse effects from vaccines and the ways to avoid them without compromising the product. Safety concerns have shown to cause hesitancy in the use of vaccination. It is important to ensure that everyone receives the safest vaccines. In view of this the Global Vaccine Safety Blueprint “represents an attempt to leverage international commitment and to set out a framework for coordinated action that will raise the level and accuracy of vaccine safety monitoring globally” (Global Vaccine Safety Blueprint, 2012). This blueprint will help monitor and assure the safe use of vaccines.
Homeopathy is natural form of medicine that has been around for over two hundred years. Homeopathy works by treating a symptom with the “principle of similars”.“We should imitate nature...a drug with power to provoke another, artificial disease, as similar as possible, and the former disease will be cured: fight like with like.” (Hahnerman) Homeopathy works by treating a symptom with the “principle of similars”. This means to give a substance that will elicit a healing response. Over the past couple of years, it has been discovered that conventional medicine has serious side effects which can harm a person’s health. Homeopathy was found to be a solution to this problem and can have many positive effects on a person’s health and their lifestyle.
Scout reveals this by not being infected with what Atticus calls “Maycomb’s usual disease.” Notably her naïve and innocent aspect toward the word benefits her to not fall victim to racism, which displays a human truth that we are not born prejudice. Scout initially has little comprehension of the prejudice effecting the population of Maycomb. Regarding this while “[Scout] has felt [Calpurnia’s] tyrannical presence as long as [she] can remember,” Maycomb would perceive this as an abnormality to be as closely associated as Scout is with Calpurnia; an African American. By not fathoming the magnitude of prejudice leaves Scout ignorant to the world around her. However, as the novel progresses, Scout begins to notice the lack of empathy that Maycomb inhabits. Scout attends Tom Robinson’s trial which ended with him being convicted guilty for simply being Negro, whose declaration of his innocence was being held against a white women’s version of the events. Consequently Scout learns that they do not share the same aspect of equality and empathy she values, as well as witnessing the lack of empathy the town holds, making her become mature. Throughout the novel, it is shown what the cost is to mature, and if we need to change our mindset to do

Life in Korea during the period of the Japanese Occupation differed greatly than life beforehand. Everything in Korea was made to match the ways of the Japanese. From schooling, to language, to jobs, to just about every other aspect of daily life, the Japanese created an iron fist around the Koreans and forced them to change. “Lost Names” by Richard E. Kim goes into detail about these changes to the lives of the Koreans. Beyond the Occupation Period, there were also lasting effects on Korean life as well.
Vaccines are a simple and effective way to ensure society doesn’t become infected with serious diseases that can cause epidemics. In today’s world, there are many different vaccines available and through increased use of vaccines numerous infections and diseases have been eradicated in devolved countries. Vaccines and immunisations (interchangeable) are small injections, that prevent someone from contracting life-threating diseases such as measles, small-pox, polio etc.
Martin Luther King Jr. once stated, “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope” (Brainy Quotes). Even though a nation agonizes over its collapse, it must never lose its optimistic views for the future. Korea was a nation that was annexed, however the determination for liberation was never diminished. Korea became a colony of Japan in 1910 for its natural resources and also for its territory which had an advantageous position, geographically. Thousands of Koreans who resisted annexation were killed by the Japanese military. During these years under the Japanese rule, the Koreans suffered greatly as the men were forced into extreme labor while the women were bounded into prostitution. Although the majority of Koreans detested the Japanese occupation, they were impotent against the Japanese harsh reign. Developments in industrial activities also took place, partially encouraged by the Japanese government, overall however the country’s citizens were living in destitution. Only the Japanese government was gaining resources and wealth, while Koreans were forced into harsh labor. In 1945, Korea was liberated from this sadistic rule partially due to its continuous efforts for freedom.
In 1910, Japan successfully colonized Korea through the Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty. Beginning in 1919, mass demonstrations erupted underlining the generalized mistreatment of the Koreans and the need for independence from Imperialist Japan. The March 1st 1919 Movement culminated into the creation of the modern-day of Korea. Without the protest, the Korean Declaration of Independence would not have been written and signed, the Provincial Government of Korea would have been delayed, and the Korean Liberation would not have formed or would have formed at a later point in time.
Despite the fact that this was the age of Western imperialism and gunboat diplomacy, Korea failed to erect a large standing military and navy. Instead of uniting under the banner of protecting Korea’s sovereignty, some officials were more concerned with protecting their own privileges. Robinson wrote “The lack of consensus in domestic politics…inhibited any program to gather
In a small town in Alabama, a story unfolds about a young girl trying to figure out what is wrong and right when it involves civil rights. In the book, To Kill A Mockingbird, Jean Louise (aka Scout) Finch was an unordinary little girl. She was not like the other girls in Maycomb, Alabama, and she was treated like she had no say in anything. Scout changed so much throughout this book, and she became a person that she never thought of herself becoming. This story shows many characteristic of the little girl just trying to make it in a small town in Alabama; Scout Finch taught us to look into someone else’s life before being prejudiced, to be unique, and to always care for people no matter the circumstance of their backgrounds.
