Do You Ever Feel Like You Can Change Your Own Life With The Decisions You Make?

- Do you ever feel like you can change your own life with the decisions you make. I believe that every little decision you make in your life affects you in some way. You can just wake up one morning and decide that you want to change something, and just like that, you change it. That’s how it was for me, I woke up one morning and I wasn’t happy anymore with a sport I once loved. Basketball, my first love, it just didn’t make me happy anymore. Maybe Coach Brummell had ruined it for me, maybe I just lost that spark to play, or maybe it’s that I put too much stress on myself....   [tags: 2007 singles, 2008 singles]

Making a Case Against Legal Abortion

- One of the most famous documents pertaining to medical ethics is the Hippocratic Oath. A particular passage notes that one “will not give a woman a destructive pessary”. A pessary was historically used for giving abortions. To some, this is definitive evidence that abortions are morally wrong and should not be carried out. To others, they believe the reference to pessaries was specific and not necessarily related to abortion. At any rate, there is a massive struggle between those who are pro-life and those who are pro-choice....   [tags: going agains Hippocratic oath]

What Resources Do You Use?

- What resources do you use. Like most others, daily resources I utilize include water, electricity/fossil fuels, and of course, air. Water is a necessity; however, I tend to stay away from buying bottled water and just use my S’well water bottle to refill from jugs instead.

Electricity and fossil fuels inevitably make our lives easier; thus, we use this resource probably more than even water....   [tags: Pollution, Environmentalism, Waste]

Evolution- Should You Believe in It?

- -This essay is not mine- THE question “Do you believe in evolution or in creation?” is more than a matter of idle curiosity.

But, following publication, in 1859, of his book The Origin of Species, the supporters of the idea have greatly increased in number. In those lands where considerable emphasis is placed on “science,” the teaching of evolution holds a prominent place in school textbooks....   [tags: essays research papers]
