The spray paint on the egg-heads led to students leading a march and protest outside of the University’s registrar building with the intent to be heard. Those who were not physically at the protest were able to use graffiti to make a
In “Grade Inflation: It’s Time to Face the Facts” in The Chronicle of Higher Education, April 6, 2001, Harvey Mansfield, a political philosophy professor at Harvard, describes and informs his reader of the recent increase of grade inflation. Mansfield states how this inflation has not only raised his grades higher and higher but also the grades of students in many colleges in the country. He uses the word, “contempt” to describe how being pressured into changing his grading scale feels and that he has been forced to conform with what has become the norm for many professors in America. Mansfield appeals not only to professors who are cheating themselves out of active students and submitting to the new grading scale, but also to students who are being tricked into thinking this scale is better for them and makes success easier, but who are paying more money for an education that will not last and won’t help them in their future lives. Mansfield is trying to “get attention” to the way
The MD’s have historically viewed DO’s negatively since they believed that the sub-par education DO’s received was nothing more that “cultist healing” (Gevitz), which is why the American Medical Association (AMA) had implemented a mandatory boycott of all professional associations with DO’s since the late nineteenth century (Osteopaths). As the negative publicity spread, the DO’s began to lose public support. In response to the loss of support and ensued loss of income, the California Osteopathic Association (COA) decided to meet with the California Medical Association (CMA) to discuss options to consolidate both professions. The outcome of the meeting was promising, and in 1962 a contract was drawn between the associations, a vote was carried out by the House of Delegates, and the merger of the two organizations was approved. The DO’s would become MD’s after completing additional educational training provided by MD’s and a small fee of $65 for
Criminals like these make the process of adoption stricter due to the need for criminal activity: “Lemma’s family was scammed by a man who said the girls were being sent to the United States on a study program…Only when the sisters arrived did they realize their legal rights had been signed away to new parents” (CNN). Actions such to these ended up forcing countries to putting a stop on adopting from their country. In 2007, Guatemala was forced to close its adopting agencies due to the allegations the united stated accused the country of. These included child trafficking and coerced, once Guatemala closed, another country took its spot right

This was a landmark case tried in the Supreme Court of California in 1990 that established the legal status of ownership of (discarded) human cells, tissues and organs. The case was filed by John Moore on the basis that he was denied a share of the profits arising from the commercialization of cell lines derived from his organs and tissues. Moore in 1976 was diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia and was treated for the same in the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Centre by Dr. David W. Golde and his team. In October 1976, Golde recommended removal of the spleen (splenectomy) in order to slow down the progress of Moore’s disease. Prior to the operation, Golde obtained from Moore a signed written form consenting to the splenectomy and the disposal of any severed tissue or member by cremation.
Kitzmiller v. Dover brought up a global attention.

This stuck around until the Brown v. Board of Education case (Plessy v. Ferguson). A ways down the road from the Plessy case came the Brown.
