n the United States, women choose to end about 25% of their pregnancies through abortion. (www.gale.com) This number has been gradually declining since 1979. This is similar to the Canadian figure of 21% but is much lower than that of the former Soviet
Union (60%) and Romania (78%) where contraceptives are in short supply. (Newsweek
Sept. 22, 1997, Pg.18)
Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote about adultery in The Scarlet Letter, but the "A" word these days is abortion. People often break off friendships, ostracize each other, and are intolerant of others having different opinions on this subject. This is sad, because we can all learn from each other.

The rest of this abortion essay is divided into two parts. First is a general discussion mentioning some legal issues. Then the legal issues will be discussed in more detail. Be aware that some of the following material is personal opinion, although you will also find a lot of information (including links).(www.gale.com)
For thousands of years of western civilization, abortion was generally illegal after
"quickening" (the point at about four months into pregnancy when a baby kicks). This tradition can be traced back at least to the Ancient Greeks. In his book "Politics," Aristotle said that "the line between lawful and unlawful abortion will be marked by the fact of having sensation and being alive." (www.gale.com) Aristotle thus contended that the right to life generally accrues earlier than birth and irrespective of whether the baby is strong enough to survive after birth (i.e. viability). (Newsweek Sept. 22, 1997, Pg.18) This broad standard of Aristotle leaves plenty of room for special rules and exceptions in order to allow some late abortions for the life of the mother, rape, incest, grave fetal deformity, maiming of the mother, et cetera.

Quickening usually occurs at least two months before…...

...Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (a member of the retrovirus family) that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS),[1][2] a condition in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive. HIV infects vital cells in the human immune system such as helper T cells (specifically CD4+ T cells), macrophages, and dendritic cells.[3] HIV infection leads to low levels of CD4+ T cells through three main mechanisms: First, direct viral killing of infected cells; second, increased rates of apoptosis in infected cells; and third, killing of infected CD4+ T cells by CD8 cytotoxic lymphocytes that recognize infected cells. When CD4+ T cell numbers decline below a critical level, cell-mediated immunity is lost, and the body becomes progressively more susceptible to opportunistic infections. Classification HIV is a member of the genus Lentivirus,[4] part of the family of Retroviridae.[5] Lentiviruses have many morphologies and biologicalproperties in common. Many species are infected by lentiviruses, which are characteristically responsible for long-duration illnesses with a long incubation period.[6] Lentiviruses are transmitted as single-stranded, positive-sense, enveloped RNA viruses. Upon entry into the target cell, the viral RNA genome is converted (reverse transcribed) into double-stranded DNA by a virally encoded reverse transcriptase that is transported along with the viral......

...Ever since the beginning of man in Literature there has been a discussion over appearance vs. reality. The appearance of the apple to Eve was one that it would give her great wisdom as to that of the gods. In reality it did give her wisdom, but with that also came the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The appearance of the apple was good but the outcome was bad so was marriage in the 19th century. In Henrik Ibsen’s play "A Doll's House," where a man treats his wife with inferiority and where to him appearance of things is as water is to life, various symbols are used to express a theme. Three symbols used, a Christmas tree, the title, and the nicknames that Torvald calls Nora emphasize the theme of a comparison of perfect marriage relationship to the reality of their relationship that is an artificial " Doll's house" relationship. Ibsen’s use of a Christmas tree is used throughout the play epitomizes Nora's feelings. In the first act there is a festive tree with "pretty red flowers" and Nora comes into the house acting frivolously. Both tree and the Helmers look very happy. Nora's mood is festive and the tree gives a merry glow to the reader. In the end of Act I, Krogstad has threatened Nora that if she doesn't help him keep his job he will tell Torvald of their illegal loan. Torvald has said that Krogstad "has forged someone's name" so Torvald is going to fire him so in Act II, the tree is "stripped of its ornaments and with burnt down candle-ends." In this act the tree is...

...Nowadays stress is one of the most know words. Since many years ago, the effects of stress are still being present in our daily life, causing many social problems and health diseases among young and adult people.  One of the most dangerous effects is the excess of cortisone in our blood. Cortisone increases the risk of having a heart attack, your behavior, causes that you can’t sleep, and even worst get older. As a result of that situation, doctors say that cortisone is killing more people than many other diseases. Another effect of being stressed is the constant change in people’s behavior. Even if you don’t have, or have noticed it, many or most of your daily life problems are caused because of the stress. Actually, as a result of this, more young people are dying of stress effects than ever before.

...Byronic Hero Romantic poet Lord Byron (George Gordon) is credited with the development of prototypical anti-hero, referred to as the Byronic hero. Like Childe Harold in Byron’s popular Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, the Byronic hero is a larger-than-life, but flawed character who would be considered, by traditional standards, to be a rebel. Typically, the Byronic hero: * Exhibits conflicting emotions and excessive moodiness; * Is passionate about a particular issue; * Can be introspective and critical of himself; * Struggles with his own sense of integrity; * Operates largely within his own set of rules; * Rejects accepted codes and norms of society; * Is fiercely independent and strongly individual; * Is a loner (whether imposed by society or self-imposed); * Displays a respect for rank and privilege; * Has a troubled or mysterious past; * Can be cynical, demanding, and arrogant; * Exhibits self-destructive tendencies and behavior; This hyper-sensitive loner, obsessively following a quest – which, being a Romantic Quest, is doomed to failure – usually ends up dead at the end of his story, either as the unintended consequence of the hero’s own choices and actions, or as a conscious choice. Gatsby’s quest for Daisy, the uncertainty surrounding how he amassed so vast a fortune so quickly, his aloofness around everyone except the Object of his Quest, the fact that it is not enough that Daisy love him but that she must also......

...108 Alipato High School Students’ Reasoning Skills and Their Study Habits and Attitude Towards Learning Maricris B. Acido Introduction A major task of education programs is to come up with guidelines and tools to enable students to learn effectively. This is to ensure that students are able to acquire skills for them to carry out their academic and problem solving tasks. UNESCO acknowledges that: On the eve of a new century, there is an unprecedented demand for and a great diversification in… education, and for building the future, for which the younger generations will need to be equipped with new skills, knowledge, and ideals (UNESCO, 1998). The profusion of knowledge and information has led to an increase in the number of issues that students need to resolve inside and outside the school. Knowledge explosion also demands prudence and careful discernment from students who are to choose more relevant and sound data. This would require the acquisition of reasoning skills that would enable them to filter relevant information from irrelevant ones. Reasoning involves providing arguments, premises, justification, and evidence to claims or positions. However, acquisition of reasoning skills requires much from students. It requires good study habits and positive attitudes, as well as good contextual reinforcers and influences. Many educators have noted that learning is dynamic and that it does not occur in a vacuum. Learning happens due to various factors and influences. ...

The half-life of a radioactive isotope is a characteristic of that isotope and is not affected by any change in physical or chemical conditions.
