Reflection #1 "The DNA Dilemma: A Test That Could Change Your Life" By Bonnie Rochman, Time Magazine. It was talked about Laurie Hunter's daughter who by the age of 2 months was not developing normally. Laurie did not know what kind of disease was attacking her daughter. She decided to take her daughter make a genetic test. But in the first test doctor could not find any reason of her daughter's disease. Laurie's daughter' muscle got more serious when she was 9 years old. They took genetic test again and again. Finally, the tests found seven genes missing from Laurie's daughter's first chromosome. Because of Laurie has the same deletion. Some people thought the genetic test let us learn more about our body and good for pre-pregnancy mothers. But some people thought the test is sign of cruelty. After I read this article and studying in human growth and development course, I really support genetic test, it is a greater contribution to human. Genes affect every aspect of development and that they come from parents and are passed on to children. Fetus is made by tiny cells and each cell manufactures certain proteins according to instructions stored by molecules of DNA( PG.62). The Human Genome Project are found out so many nucleotide bases and the genes contained in the human chromosomes. It is potential for early detection of the genetically connected disease to find out through a genetic test whether you carry the gene that is associated with whatever disease that has been detected. In my opinion, prenatal screening and genetic testing both are can be tested while the infant is still in the womb. Every one hope their babies could have health development, but it is not hundred percent assure that. Through the test you can know whether you have any disease passed to children. You can have chance to decide whether want to have a baby. It can be ease of family effect. Maybe you are carrying a disease through genes it does not guarantee that it will develop the disease, given that the onset of many disease can depend on…
London as Art Capital
Upon arriving at the National Gallery, the main entrance hall facing directly toward the Trafalgar Square was quite modern in its design and also had small staircases to the first room of the gallery, which gave me some sense that the journey of exhibition starts right after the staircases. After the staircases, there was a central hall filled paintings on the both sides and also there were three doors leading people to three different kinds of rooms. This…

Personal Reflection 1
Name: Zhi Ling Liew Student number: 500551761
Today’s class was really interesting and enlightening about the issues of homelessness. I feel that I’m actually closer to being homeless if I don’t have the supporting network I have in my life. The youth I see wandering around the street can really be me if my family is unable to provide me the basic needs., for example, a home. It’s unbelievable the things we take for granted in our day-to-day life.
Knowing that 60% of the…
My reflection paper is a reflection on what I have learned from my class and my understanding of the Christians views. In my paper today I will discuss two topics that deal with Jesus Christ. The first topic I will discuss is the fall of man. The next topic will be the death of Christ. These topics are very controversial and they are the ones that I struggled with in the beginning and/or struggle with today.
The Fall of Man
The theological definition for the fall of man is the transition of the…

When you synthesize and analyze the suffering and violence against women, its tough to differentiate or separate them by looking at color to race. Women are women are they become one. Within each of these readings, I’ve come to the realization that women were definitely being taken as rapable or sex symbols. In the reading “Conquest”, by Andrea Smith, it discusses how natives were marked by their sexual perversity. In the eyes of the colonizers, they were nothing…

1st Reflection Paper
By simply breaking down the word Philosophy you get "Philo" meaning love or active pursuit, and sophy/sophia meaning wisdom. This allows the distinction between a philosopher and a non-philosopher to be easy. A philosopher is a person who loves and/or purses knowledge. I think a philosopher is someone who thinks logically and asks a lot of questions about everything. Someone who wants to know answers to why things are the way they are; how everything got that way, and loves…

The Ebola Scare
On almost every social media site, the word, “Ebola,” is mentioned in some way, whether people are making jokes or freaking out. When I first saw this word, I had no idea what it actually was or why it was such a big deal, so I did a little research to find out what all this hype was about. On MedPage Today, I found an interesting article, “Ebola: Dallas Patient Gets Investigational Drug,” written by Michael Smith. While reading this article…
