SRT1720 is a selective activator of SIRT1. Previous in vitro and in vivo studies using various cancer cell models show the role of SIRT1 either as an oncogene or a tumour suppressor gene. The oncogenic potential of SIRT1 is exemplified by studies indicating that blockade of SIRT1, like other HDACs, triggers growth arrest and apoptosis in breast, colon and lung cancers.
When Robert Gonzalez was 17 years old, he was charged as an adult because the public defender said his actions were an”adult-like crime”. Robert Gonzalez was the “wheel-man” during a robbery. The sentenced Mr.Gonzalez got a sentence of 20 years with 4 months. Proposition 57 is mainly for the juveniles that are getting a second chance to go to rehab and to get better. Proposition 57 is trying to get passed because there are too many people that are getting put into prisons for reasons that can be solved another way. This proposition is wanting to allow non-violent criminals to get out of jail once their primary offense is done. Proposition 57 wants to get rid of prisoners that can get more help outside of prison. However, this proposition is not a get-out-of-jail free card. Doug Porter claims in the article, yes on prop 57, that “In the end, it was ballot measure passed by California voters in 2014 that eased crowding below the threshold set my federal courts in 2009. This proposition started because of the crowding in the prisons. Crowding of the prisons is a big issue because it calls for more
After I watched the episode of “Think Tank” that discussed the aftermath of Proposition 227 in California, I realized how contentious the debate about bilingual education has been in the past and how it still continues to be today. The video hosted Dr. Krashen, an advocate of second-language acquisition and bilingual education, and Mr. Unz, an advocate of English-Only Education, in a debate about the effectiveness of bilingual education and Proposition 227.
While the choice of whether to remain loyal to the crown or join the revolution became popular in the late eighteenth century, two men, Jonathan Boucher and Thomas Paine, decided to voice their beliefs and later became well known for their arguments. Though Boucher stated strong points about why remaining loyal to Great Britain was the correct choice, Paine’s argument was more appealing because he clarified that America would offer various inviting benefits that Britain was not able to provide.

Callarman’s argument is that Chris McCandless made a lot of mistakes because he was arrogant and that he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness and he says that he was just crazy. I disagree with Callarman’s argument because I think that Chris McCandless (Alexander Supertramp) was not arrogant I think that he just wanted to learn new things. I also disagree because I think that Chris did have a reason to go to Alaska or else he would not have done it even if it just to go because he likes nature, and I don’t think that he was crazy at the beginning but I agree that he did start to get crazy when he was stuck in the wild on the bus.
What I feel I did well on this argumentative essay was my research. I had many sources that provided me with facts and statistics and they helped me to decide what side I was on. There were many sources that I did not use but that I had read through. What I struggled with was commentary. I feel that the commentary in my argumentative essay was not very strong. I am able to use discussion and debate in the future to explore/research a topic by choosing a topic and then doing research on both sides so that I can could a side to align with. Some important factors to consider while researchin are: website credibility,
Philosophers are on a constant struggle to determine if free-will is real or an illusion. Joshua Knobe believes we will do a better job addressing philosophical questions if we “can arrive at a better understanding of the way our own minds work” and free-will is a very important part of our brain, if it were to exist (Experiments in Philosophy, Pg.3). Some philosophers may argue that if free will is an illusion “you couldn’t come up with a philosophical stance on […] new information and act on it, because that implies choice and choice is a product of free will” (If scientists unequivocally proved free will was an illusion, how would society change, if at all?, Pg. 1). So to my wonder, would there be philosophical thinking without free will?
The rivalry between students who believe they should be able to use their cell phones in class and teachers who believe them to be disrespectful has caused a ripple effect that now bleeds through many classrooms roaring its controversial head. And here we are stuck in an ongoing battle seldom won by students. The position that students should not be able to misuse their cell phones in a classroom setting is one held by the author of “Today 's Lesson: Life in the Classroom Before Cellphones” Louise Katz, who believes that “those halcyon days” were over (Katz). Likewise, Zoya Kahn, the author of “Why Cell Phones Do Not Belong In The Classroom” has a similar stance on the topic, Kahn states that “it is in everyone’s interest for instructors to
Gretchen Weirob’s argument is based on the view that physical identification is more important towards personal identity rather than psychological features. For example, Weirob believes that a person can identify with their body because they can see their body and it’s certain capacity; the body is very rational. Which is why she would not want her brain to be put into someone else’s body. She believes the body is the unique differentiation to an individual’s identification.
In Ben Robert-Smith’s opinion piece published in the Herald Sun on the 16th of January, 2017 “We Are One but We Are Many”, Robert- Smith addresses he Addresses the Australian public with the argument that is changing the date of Australia day from January 26th. He argues that the date should remain the same but should be undertaken in a manner that is “inclusive and respectful” of other Australian’s interpretation of the day. Comparatively, in Kevin V. Russell’s Letter to the Editor he presents the argument from an alternate perspective. Russell believes that the day should be changed to a day “all Australian’s can acknowledge” and that “Australia day has outlived its usefulness”. Russell’s argument is delivered in a rather blunt and passive
From the works of Morenoff and Astor, we are to explain why crime might be higher among second generation immigrant Americans. Though there are many assimilation theories which coincides with this, Portes and Zhou’s theory of segmented assimilation stands up to be the strongest of them all. My reasoning behind it is based on the array of the data from Morenoff and Astor collected in this article and my own interpretation which I experienced first hand. The article shows segmented assimilation branching out to two main scenarios of the straight line assimilation, the positive and the negative.
Tring to understand the events that happened, do to a religion stand point can become complex and extremely confusing. Dr. James Hutson, a Historian and chief in the Manuscript Division at the library of congress, discusses what rights are and what “a right” means. Dr. Hutson work and findings lead him to believe that giving ‘a right’ a definition was not logical but rather ‘a right’ was divided in to different categories. Dr. Hutson also talks about the founding father of the United States, which he says, had their actions greatly influenced by their believes and faiths. The right of being educated, or rather even having the right of education didn’t mean that the education was not influenced by the church. The church getting involved in the learning of masses was not something new but one example of it in the united states was the collage text books. The collage text books
She pointed out that unhealthy foods are more accessible to low-income families than healthy options (Olivares, 2014). She advocated for these low-income families by saying: “They [low-income earners] only eat less healthy foods out of necessity, and it’s hard for kids of those families to eat healthy when the public-school system offers them junk as well.” (Olivares, 2014, p20). The children to go to school, eat junk food that is provided for them, and then go home to an unhealthy meal to end their day. It is an endless cycle that is hard to escape (Olivares, 2014). When someone has a low-income and can barely afford healthy meals, if any healthy meals, it is assumable that they probably do not have the best health insurance coverage, which is why the government is taking care of their expenses in the first
Ricardo Lopez argues, "Obesity is a national problem…. We don 't want to contribute to that." As a committee we would like to formally disagree with his statement. Giving people rights and access to welfare does not automatically mean they are contributing to the problem of obesity. If the government decides someone is eligible for food stamps, it means someone recognized their need for assistance. If and when an American receives welfare benefits, they should be allowed to get what they need to get back on their feet and become a productive member of society. In efforts to counter this argument we reiterate, food stamp
