Unfortunately we live in a world today in which we musk as the question whether it is reasonable for a government to purposefully target and kill a civilian or “unlawful combatant” out of the government’s own interest. The obvious answer to this question is a resounding NO! Our world is a mesh of many sovereign nations and if it were acceptable to merely target and kill people which we do not like or agree with simple because we can, the rights that we as Americans and the greater United Nations laid out, would be completely ignored. Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights created by the UN states that “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.” And article 11 orders, “Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law in a public trial.” My opponents would argue that this practice is acceptable because the targets have broken some sort of law of national interest and therefore they merit assassination. But as history has made it clear, one countries opinion on the matter is not the only one. Imagine if Great Britain had performed targeted killing on their opponent Mahatma Gandhi. Certainly, he had broken British laws. Certainly he posed a threat to Britain. Does that mean that it would have been ok to assassinate this man, because he opposed the British? OF COURSE NOT. As the American Civil Liberties Union states on their website, [QUOTE], “Targeting people who are…

Killing Us Softly
The lecture “Killing us Softly” gave focuses on how women are portrayed in advertising and our role in society. Her delivery was filled with warm remarks and quick wit. Everything she stated generally came across as very likable to the audience. However her viewpoint is a very specific one, and I think there are other ways to look at the issue. During the…
aren’t get anything that are actually struggling. But welfare, we all realized, isn’t the only problem that is in America today.
Movies, videogames, television shows and magazines all objectify women in some way. We all laughed but agreed with the Killing Us Softly 4 video on “aliens would assume our favorite thing is sex.” But in reality sex really does sell whatever is being aimed at consumers. We’ve noticed that both boys and girls are continually perceiving how their supposed to look like from…
Middle East Honnor Killings
With the large spread of Muslim honor killings occurring in multiple countries around the world, the question lies, is it morally wrong? The rise of Muslim immigrant honor killings is raising awareness in the United States with six “honor Killings” in the past two years alone. This is pressuring people to have concerns about what that they, “Muslim community and police need to do more to stop such crimes.” The last alleged honor killing was on Nov. 2. When Noor…
What makes an act of killing morally wrong is not that the act causes loss of life
or consciousness but rather that the act causes loss of all remaining abilities (J Med
Ethics.2012). To taking someone’s life under any circumstances is immoral and PAS is
A way for individuals who are too sick or incredible ill who want their life to come to an
End. Suicide, even when done to end suffering, is self-murder; and no one has the right to take
an innocent life (bangordailynews.com.2012)…

The worst scenario is that regardless the complaints against these ‘poor advertisement’ the problem…
Honour killing is the murder of a family member for shaming the family name. It is ethically and morally wrong because taking the life of another person should not be a decision that another human can make. If the person has done wrong they should be given the opportunity to be forgiven and another chance to prove their worth. Although honour killing is morally wrong, the beliefs…
If the cleaning product is more expensive then it will be more effective on killing bacteria.
The results of the experiment are that the homemade cleaning product was the most effective in killing bacteria on the desks. The hypothesis was not proven; in fact it was the opposite. It turns out that the expensive cleaning product is not the most effective in killing bacteria. The cheapest cleaning product, homemade, was the most effective. It seems that there…
As one who has been using Facebook since it’s relative infancy I have sub-consciously noticed a shift in the way it advertises towards me (and subsequently, how it makes its money). Instead of giving a history of where advertising on social media started, my goal is to analyze where targeted advertising is today and where it may eventually lead in the future. I will discuss various methods and practices advertising companies employ to gain information, the potential invasion this brings…

Honor Killings in Jordan
Family honor is highly valued by the Jordanian people. In Jordan the family honor is preserved through the women. The way things work in Jordan is completely different from how it is in the USA. Actions taken in Jordan to preserve family honor would be seen as absurd in the United States. Jordanians go through extreme measures to show just how important the preservation of family honor is to them. In many cases the women…
