Euthanasia Sarah Quinn is 45-year-old woman whose mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease at 46, and Sarah has been told in advance that she will most likely inherit the disease. Thus, making her forget any recently learned knowledge. Sarah is stuck in an infinite loop that will ruin her career and her life. One day she notices she has asked her husband the same thing three times. As Sarah’s husband pointed out to her, she has forgotten where she stuck her keys. She checked the pantry and there they were. Mrs. Quinn couldn’t remember and normally wouldn’t have been bothered. However, knowing what fate is soon to come, she is concerned with her family having to support her monetarily, herself becoming almost a vegetable, and most importantly, dealing with the tragic effects of the disease at home. Sarah knows soon she will have trouble even remembering the names of her loved ones. She fears the moment that she because completely incompetent. Knowing this is soon to come Sarah Quinn wants to relieve her family of this burned. Euthanasia is a viable option; patients who have only short terms to live with debilitating diseases should have the option to die with dignity and respect, saving not only themselves from pain but also their family. The United States’ Government has outlawed euthanasia; however, the choice and time or place of death is definitely a private affair where the government should not intervene, says Kevin Schneider in the New Your Times Magazine. The Bill of Rights was added to the constitution to protect natural born rights of the citizens of the United States of America, in which privacy definitely falls under; hence it is ones own life we are discussing (Schneider). Therefore, outlawing euthanasia contradicts the fundamental values held by the founding fathers, taking rights from the terminally ill is not only morally wrong but also degrading. If a terminally ill patient decides to not tolerate with pain or suffering, what right does someone have to interrupt and make he or she do so? The first amendment of the constitution guarantees freedom of religion, and religion has played a massive role in the opposing side to the issue of euthanasia. However, if one does not believe the same about death as others, he or she shouldn’t have to bear the consequences. Religion today is a highly personal matter; people keep their beliefs private because it shouldn’t afflict others, and their religion does not concern them. Taking away the freedom to die, is forcing these beliefs on citizens who have the right to practice however they please. The Bill of Rights ensures privacy rights and religious rights; furthermore, the right to die is a highly private matter that every state in the US should grant to their citizens. A majority of the Christian population is against Euthanasia; however, there are more reasons for them to support physician-assisted suicide than to be against it. A stereotypical Christian wouldn’t keep a human being in pain or pain to come. Not just Christianity, but many religions are against any form of suicide. Although this shouldn’t even affect how some people chose to die, religions typically believe in happiness and peace, something the terminally ill can’t gain if they are stuck in pain from their illness. If the Christianity populace really wanted to help people in this condition, euthanasia would be in their best interest in order to allow people to end their own suffering. Humans show compassion to all other living things, such as if an animal needs to be put out of its misery the human race can do so. Humans should have the right to end their own life if absolutely necessary. Humans were originally given control according to Religion; therefore, if one’s life needs to end, then by appropriate measures it should. Physician assisted suicide is an appropriate way for pain to be relieved, and if it is not mandated, people will and have found more extreme ways of dealing with
What Went Wrong with Religion
Since the beginning of time, man has been developing theories to explain the impossible to understand. The development of religion found its basis here. The ideas of gods were turned into an assumed reality to comfort the individual and explain what people could not scientifically understand. As science progressed to being able to explain the natural world digressed into a role of governing the moral culture of the individuals that choose to follow it…
Final causes are useful in physics
* “The soul follows its own laws and the body likewise follows its own; and they agree by virtue of the preestablished harmony among all substances, because they are all representations of one self-same universe.” –Leibniz--
* “Souls act according to the laws of final causes through appetition, ends, and means. Bodies act according to the laws of efficient causes or of motions. And the two realms, that of efficient causes and that of final causes, are harmonious…
efficient cause that talks about “who made it?” Justly the last cause is the final cause that asks, “What is the purpose?” or “what is it for”? When talking about the final cause we often look at what the goal of the object is. We see that we are able to use these effectively when looking at a piece of art. We are able to say that the formal cause is a statue, its material cause is stone, its efficient cause is an artist, and its final cause is as a decoration.
Now that we have a basic understanding of…

* Embalming the Body - The second step was taking the body to be embalmed. The embalmers were located in special tents or buildings. These buildings were called embalming workshops, and were maintained by teams of priests. Oftentimes during the embalming, the priests would have to step outside to get away from the horrible smell.
* Removal of Brain - The first part of the body to be removed was the brain. Egyptians did not know the purpose of…
So the initial momentum must equal the final momentum.
Momentum (p) = mv. pi = m × 3 + m × -6
pi = -3m
So pf = - 3m A = -7m + 4m = -3m
B = 4m -m = 3m
C = -3m + 0 = -3m
D = -1.5 m - 1.5 m = -3m
E = -5.5m + 2.5 m = -3m
At this stage A, C, D, E are all possibilities. In any collision the energy (KE + PE) must be conserved or lost to other forms. If you consider the KEi = × m × 32 + × m ×62 = × m × 45 = 22.5m
The final KE must be no greater than this. In 'A'…
Hitler's Final Solution
In the Second World War, Adolph Hitler, the leader of the Nazi party, had many problems to deal with. To handle the largest of these problems, he came up with his infamous Final Solution. What was his Final Solution, and which problem was it an attempt to solve? Moreover, how did he carry this solution out?
Throughout time, humans have murdered each other in the worst ways imaginable. The most horrifying type of murder is genocide: ‘the complete extermination of an entire…
Spring Semester Final Study Guide
Benchmark 1C: Understand the basic process of cellular respiration.
a. Identify the reactants and products involved in glycolysis, the Kreb’s Cycle, and the electron transport chain
b. Distinguish between the processes and products of aerobic and anaerobic cellular respiration (fermentation).
c. Describe the importance of ATP in the life of the cell
d. Compare the relative energy available in ATP, ADP, and AMP
To move a body work must be done on the body.
The product of force and the distance moved (s) in the direction of force (F) is defined as the work done (W).
W = F.s
Work done is a scalar quantity.
SI unit of work done: joule (J)
When the force and the direction of motion are inclined, the work done is calculated by the force component in the direction of motion and the distance moved.

The Work done on a body will be converted in to…

My Ski Vacation
Thin air astounds me as I commerce the final day of skiing at Vail, Colorado. Five days of
skiing glide by rather painlessly. I fall occasionally but an evening in the jacuzzi soothes my
aches and pains. The final day of our trip was approaching and I prepare myself for the final run
of this vacation. Fresh off the ski lift, I glide toward the tails on the face of the mountain. I
realize I am alone and will be heading down the mountain solo. I carefully choose…
