Benefits of Cloning

Cloning can be described as the copying of genes and chromosomes to generate identical physical and internal makeup. Although it seems like a simple and harmless process, religious and social organizations are outraged at the scene of creating animals and humans that did not involve the natural process of conception. Many have religious and ethical reasons for wanting to put a total ban on human cloning. However, there are many people, including some scientists, who believe that the possible benefits of human cloning outweigh the minimal risks by a considerable margin. These immeasurable benefits which, cloning will bring to society, will in return pave the way for a better, healthier future.
The major cause of death in the United States is heart disease. Imagine being able to, one day; cure that disease with a simple injection. By taking healthy heart cells from the heart , cloning them, then injecting them back into the heart, where it is damaged, cloning will be able to cure a devastating disease; which takes many of our parents, friends, and siblings.

It was the Hal Shafers annual baseball tournament, the biggest senior youth tournament in the United States, all the scouts would be there. My team, the Findlay Royals, play in this event every year representing Northwest Ohio. It was my first year as a member of the team, and playing in the tournament. It just so happened that my team was truly good that year. We were so incredibly good that we were picked to win the tournament. I played really well the first couple of games, so well that the announcer of the game started to have fun saying my name. He would say over the loud speaker ” n with a great play”. He was a really old man with a funny voice and laugh that kind of stuck in your head.

Beowulf Values

Beowulf Values

The Anglo-Saxons living in the time of Beowulf did not believe in the afterlife. To them, the only way to experience life after death was to live on in the memories of others. One could fulfill this goal by being known for one?s generosity, courage, and strength. Beowulf, the protagonist of this epic poem, embodied all of these virtues and lives on in memory because of this.

First, generosity was widespread and more greatly valued during Beowulf?s time than it is now. It was not merely a virtue, but instead a necessity. Many kings were measured by the extent of their generosity.

To him in the hall, then, Healfdanes son

gave treasures twelve, and the trust-of-earls

bade him fare with the gifts to his folk beloved,

hale to his home, and in haste return.

This is Hrothgar?s (Healfdane?s son) way of being generous and thanking Beowulf for slaying Grendel and it?s mother. This gift not only increased Beowulf?s fame and riches but also Hrothgar?s greatness. If Hrothgar had not displayed his gratitude for Beowulf?s great deeds he would have been looked down upon. He might be remembered for his lack of charity instead, and that would be the equivalent

Inventiveness

Inventiveness

Did you ever wonder why rocks dissolve over generations or why chalk disappears in certain liquids Well so did I until I came up with an inventive experiment to figure it out. I wanted to figure out why an acid would react with a base. I had to think of a way to demonstrate this. However, this experiment obviously couldn?t involve rocks dissolving because I didn?t want to wait for generations to get results. I did this experiment in under a week and figured out why an acid dissolves a base.
Erosion is a natural process by which acidic rain degrades solid objects on the ground. I realized that demonstrating erosion would be nearly impossible because it would take a long time. However, it is possible to show how something acidic can degrade a solid object when exposed to it over a period of time. I thought of using hydrochloric acid but then decided that HCl was too acidic and it would not prove my point. Instead I decided to use lemon juice, vinegar and pure water for a control. The solid object I was going to use was chalk. I started the experiment by placing three identical pieces of chalk

Controversial Athletes In Sports

Controversial Athletes In Sports

Controversial Athletes in Sports
Controversial Athletes in Sports Due to the greediness of sports figures, professional athletes are not punished in the same manner as other professionals are. It?s like they are in a completely different group that uses an entirely different set of morals. Team owners care more about making their money than they do about setting a good example for young kids and making pro sports fun again rather than a business. Three good examples of this greediness are Roberto Alomar, Warren Sapp, and Dennis Rodman.
Team owners and their respective leagues need to do something to turn this situation around before they have murderers and rapists playing sports for millions of dollars a year. Roberto Alomar makes 5.5 million dollars a year due to his five Gold Gloves. He is one of baseballs best all-around players and a sure in for the Hall of Fame. In a 1996 divisional playoff game, Alomar was up to bat; Umpire John Hirschbeck called Alomar out on strikes. Alomar went back to the dugout where he started to argue the call with Hirschbeck. The umpire finally tossed Alomar; Orioles manager Davey Johnson, along with Alomar went racing to home plate to

Leukemia

Leukemia

Leukemia

Leukemia is a disease characterized by the formation of abnormal numbers
of white blood cells, for which no certain cure has been found. Leukemia is also
conditions characterized by the transformation of normal blood-forming cells
into abnormal white blood cells whose unrestrained growth overwhelms and
replaces normal bone marrow and blood cells.
Leukemias are named according to the normal cell from which they
originate, such as Lymphocyte Leukemia. Lymphocyte Leukemia is where a
Lymphocyte cell is transformed into a Leukemia cell. Another example of
Leukemia is Myelocytic or (Granulocytic Leukemia). This forms when a Myelocytic
cell is changed or transformed into a Leukemia cell. Different Leukemias are
located in the microscope and by how much protein they contain. These
Leukemias are usually very severe and need treatment right away. The present
incidence of new cases per year in the United States is about 25 to every
100,000 persons.
The danger to the patient lies in the growth of these abnormal white
cells, which interfere with the growth of the red blood cells, normal white
blood cells, and the blood platelets. The uncontrolled growth of the abnormal
white cells produces a tendency to unstop bleeding, the risk of getting serious
infection in the wounds, and a very small possibility of obstruction of
