Kahn’s assumption of atropine poisoning does not add up under close examination. The only way this would be proven true is if someone were to actually believe atropine poisoning were used in the book and then look for symptoms and evidence of atropine in the book. For some reason the evidence that would back up Kahn’s theory is somewhat coincidental. Dimmesdale died because of his own pure shame and
His plan did not work and the war carried on. Another weapon that was ineffective was the “torpedo” or landmines. These were used by the Confederacy to try to delay the Union from advancing. It did some damage but overall wasn’t a major weapon that would turn the war in their favor. One of the least known and most ridiculous weapon used was the the hot air balloon.
Although it was a bloody war, disease was the number one cause of death due to all the unsanitary equipment being used. Not only did the cleanness of things factor in the deaths caused by disease, but so did the knowledge of the people back then. They were not familiar with bacterial transmission, so not much was done to keep things sanitary. Luckily, today we have way better technology, knowledge and medical equipment. If it wasn’t for the Civil War and all the people who put their lives on the line, the world wouldn’t be how it is
John Thornton has used 74 sources in his African Dimensions Of The Stono Rebellion article. Using these 74 citations, proves that he is writing accurate information and he is not coming up with ideas who can’t be evidenced. In this article, the author is using footnote citations, which helps readers comprehend the sources easier, as they can see them on the same
This actually makes sense and it is a possibility because Twain did not talk about genes and when readers say that Huck’s nature is stronger than nurture, it is only an speculation they made from what they understand from the book and the excerpt. However, even though it that the argument “Huck’s nature side is more obvious than nurture” might be an speculation, it makes more sense because readers can see that Huck would rather go to hell and readers can make an educated guess that if Huck were to be properly nurtured, he would deem going to hell for a slave a crime and an unlawful act. No matter how much the Widow Douglas tries to conform Huck to society’s way, he disapproves of it and wants no part it in. It is too late for the Widow Douglas to change Huck into someone who follows the law and rules of society because Huck’s early “environmental influences” has lead him to deviate from society. It is Huck’s nurture side that makes him who he is-- someone who is willing to free a slave.
The reasons people believe Poe died from rabies is because in one of the letters Dr. Benitez says “Poe refused alcohol and could drink water only with great difficulty, rabies victims exhibit hydrophobia”. If Poe had been drinking he would have taken the alcohol, this shows he may have had something else. Another thing that Dr. Benitez said was “there was no evidence of a bite but some rabies victims don’t remember being bitten”. This shows that he could have been bitten a long time ago and couldn’t remember.
The initial mention of the sense of smell comes in a reference to St. Lawrence, who can supposedly smell sin. In the original story, the lesson is that St. Lawrence should not judge people, but that idea never makes it clearly into “Admission” as more than a side note
One of the previously mentioned arguments for anti-vaccers was the argument that the vaccine would cause teenagers to act more immorally. This is proven to be false when Dr. Saslow, the lead author of the cancer society’s, updated guidelines and firmly states that there is “no direct connection between the vaccine and sexual activity and no reason to suggest one.” Brody’s mention of the famous doctor effectively persuades the reader to see the truth behind the research. The mention of parents being concerned about the effects these vaccines is considered a rhetorical cannon of relationship. The supposed relationship between the vaccine and physical consequences encountered after being vaccinated is a the main elements behind the anti-vaccers argument.
This alarmed many people that Zachary Taylor was the first president to be assassinated. A president had never been assassinated in the presidential office at this time. People were not fully sold on the idea that a simple glass of milk and cherries could kill such a rough and tough man, but a radical thought that Taylor was assassinated was not widely
Interesting non-fiction science novels are few and far between, but amongst those select few, “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston stands tall. Richard Preston has made his career as an author writing about infectious disease and bioterrorism. It is a unique niche and one that seems to suit him well. It is important to remember however, that he is not a scientist nor is he a doctor. He is an author with a book to sell.
Kindred Research 2: Medicine Long ago, diseases were spread rapidly amongst the country, and the lack of medical advancements did not leave much room for survival. Physicians were nowhere near as skilled as they are today, yet they were still important as they were the only hope for treatments. It has always been debatable, however, whether slaves had access to the same amount of medical attention as their owner. Despite the controversy, slaves were not subjected to the same medical attention for many reasons. For one, the doctors best interests were with the owners rather than the slaves themselves (“Birthing a Slave”).
Although they did struggle to survive when they first landed, they did not struggle as much as the Jamestown settlers who were constantly at odds with the Natives. One of the most attractive qualities about the history of the Pilgrims and Plymouth is that they eventually collaborated with the Natives, albeit a little bit longer than the history books would like to admit, but their relationship with the Natives was rocky instead of sunshine and rainbows. As far as the Pilgrims dirty little secret of grave robbing is concerned, that is nowhere near as bad as the cannibalism that took place in Jamestown. After a few omissions here and some rewriting there, the Pilgrims become the
I was deliberately looking for a story which would be instantly different from all the others. The story of David Manlove did surprise me a lot, in particular the effect of type of drug that he was abusing. Previously I knew that inhalants could be potentially to some extent used as drugs. However, I never really considered them as actual drugs. Thereby, I was extremely surprised to discover that one could get overdose so easily from just a single use of inhalants.
es • The only important thing that were brought over from Europe to the Americas were horses, and lots of diseases • Some textbooks refuse to acknowledge that without the help of Native Americans help there wouldn 't have been any progress with the development of the Americas • Most of the territories would have not been able to be explored without a guide and the only expert guides were the Native Americans • It 's interesting as how the some textbooks describe Native American religion as if it was some bizarre theory that didn 't make any sense, however no one would try to describe Christianity in simple terms that would obviously be offensive, however textbooks get the notion that since it 's about the Native Americans there would be no one taking offense to it • Textbooks just generalize the Native 's religion and don 't really try to convey those religions in non offensive manner as they would with just as any other religion • There have been some textbooks that clearly have a bias for the Europeans as they are constantly depicted as settlers and the Native Americans are depicted as the aggressors • To an extent there have been aggressive Native Americans, however the same can be said about the Europeans as lots of Native Americans were slaughtered for
