Austria-Hungary wanted an apology and their military to cross over in search for the black hand member name Gavrilo Princip. Austria Hungary wasn´t too happy with Serbia and declared war on them. Women and Change Before world war I many jobs were open to women were low paying and offered little chance of advancement. This situation started to change during the war, but most women such as a teacher were still expected to and their career once they married. Careers like medicine, law, and engineering and much of what was considered at the time were male jobs are closed to all women.
The rest are due to black mines where private coal mines, under no government supervision, blatantly disregard safety regulations and equipment speed up production of coal to maximize profits (Pai 77). In the industry of selling blood, AIDS has spread among the peasants due to unsanitary blood collecting stations (Pai 91). Chinese health ministry estimates about 740,000 individuals infected with HIV/AIDS in 2009. The reason for the spread is caused by the lack of awareness and knowledge by the peasants. They are unaware that blood collection stations are illegal, unsanitary, and unregulated; furthermore, ignorant of how HIV/AIDS is spread (Pai 96).
There are many themes in works of literature. My 2 topics of comparison have some themes that pop out from the stories. For Runaway, my fiction topic, a significant theme is poverty. Makes sense, because Holly is an orphan, since her dad died from a tractor accident, and her mother died,due to being a heroin addict. Holly says ‘’It’s a cold, hard, cruel fact that my mother loved heroin more than she loved me.’’ She also has hardly any personal belongings and no riches left behind by her parents.
The Belgians saw that the natives were falling victim to these common diseases and believed the natives inferior to their European breeding. Unfortunately, sleeping sickness and malaria ran rampant in the Congo due to colonization and relocation. People who had never encountered a disease spreading parasite quickly succumbed to the disease. La Force Republique attempted to aid the “savages” by building a school, but it had to be shut down, since each year “100 out of the 1000 school children were dying of sleeping sickness” (World Health Organization par. 2).
At first, women were not able to vote for a president, and were told that the one job they could do was to stay home, clean, make dinner, and have children. Although there was a lot of sexism before this time, this was one of the worst things that have happened regarding sexism. There used to be no female doctors, no female bankers, no female anything. Today, women can vote, they can become a doctor, and they can become a banker. We have come a long way as a society, as women can become anything that they would like to be, but that does not mean that there isn 't work still to be done.
The Directors considered that the public were genuinely too poor to make provident contributions and belonged to a class which lay between the 'stable artisan' and the 'depraved pauper'. They had not even consented to a suggestion sent by the British Medical Association in 1894 that they should adopt a means test, believing, as they did, that the service was not abused . In 1936 the St Marylebone General Dispensary started negotiating for a union with the Dispensary as they were looking for a new building and the St Marylebone Dispensary in effect took over the work of the Western
This feeling of sympathy is portrayed by this passage because we see how Mary’s mother did not want her at all and although Mary got sick, the only thing that Mary’s mother was most concerned about is not letting anyone know she had a daughter. On page nine of the book, we are able to see that due to the outbreak of cholera, Mary looses the only person who cared for her which was her Ayah. Although, Mary did not develop any affectionate feelings towards her Ayah, we are able to see that after her Ayah dies, Mary is left behind with no one to take care of her. The author made me feel sympathetic towards the character because during the cholera outbreak Mary was extremely neglected up to point where she accidentally got drunk by drinking wine. “It was in that strange and sudden way that Mary found out that she had neither father nor mother left, that they had died and been carried away in the night, and that the few native servants who had not died also left the house as quickly as they could get out of it, none of them remembering that there was Missie Sahib.” (pg.11) From this passage the author
Shelby also highlights the difficulties women with strong political beliefs had with asserting influence. Mrs. Shelby had no say in the sale of her slaves, she was completely helpless when it came to money management in her household, and her only resource to enact her will was to plea to her husband. To infer that Mrs. Shelby had any other resources available to her would not only be completely inaccurate, but it would arguably be the one of the most outlandish thoughts of the novel. Nearly 100 years later, scholarly articles were still so oblivious to the unequal power structure, that it was not even considered. An article entitled “Shall We Teach Gender?” from 1922 was so aloof to the inequality that it states, “Gender is a matter of very little importance; it could be entirely omitted from our grammars without any loss” (Phillips, p 27).
#longpost #breastfeedingjourney #1yearmilestone I joined this group very very late , but I just wanna share my experience with you all. It was a C-section and I couldn 't get up from my bed due to intense pain (am super pain sensitive) none of the nurses even attempted to train us to start our breastfeeding journey.. when I asked that my son is not feeding they checked his sugar levels and they were happy with that. as a mom I felt wrong and when my mom tried to make my son latch he was resisting and didn 't cooperate well. so we started to give him formula on day1 which is after 16hrs of birth and he didn 't had anything in between.. at first I was contented that he was not starving but that became a routine to feed formula and we weren 't
The social evil ordinance didn’t allow for street prostitution and it funneled much that activity indoors. For instance, the Chief of Police, James McDonough, stated in his annual report of 1872 that the number of street prostitutes “have been almost entirely discontinued” and child prostitution “has been greatly diminished, if not wholly removed.” These results should have spurred further debate as to how to modify their regulatory system to include common-sense, middle-ground compromises to ensure the women’s basic rights. However, this experiment was too politically controversial for its time. Thus, the city discontinued this policy in 1874 largely due to organized lobbying efforts from religious and feminist leaders, including the wife of the St. Louis Police
The scientific community and the media are guilty of viewing Henrietta and her family as abstractions; they did not give the Lacks family a fair trial, they’ve yet to give her family any form of compensation for the success of her cell line, and operated on Henrietta like a science fair project. In the non-fiction narrative The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, written by Rebecca Skloot, it states, “The fact that no one had sued over the growth or ownership of the HeLa cell line, he said, illustrated that patients didn’t mind when doctors took their cells and turned them into commercial products.” (204) This is unfair to the Lacks family because the fraud lawyer, Keenan Kester Cofield, deceived them. Although he is a con artist, he has a wide spectrum of knowledge about law than the Lackses really have about anything; they’ve had little to no education, and they barely knew anything about the HeLa cell line. The media made it seem as if the Lackses
Henrietta education went only as far as 6th grade; her husband day education went as far as 1st grade. Due to their little knowledge doctors and scientist had taken advantage of them. Africans Americans for them it seemed as if they were the new foreign exchange student in a classroom were everyone speaks a different language, (pg16) Skloot mentioned “For Henrietta, walking into Hopkins was like entering a foreign country where she didn’t speak the language. She knew about harvesting tobacco and butchering a pig, but she’d never heard the words such as cervix or biopsy……” Due to here education most African Americans only went to the hospital when it deemed necessary to them. They would go to the hospital with faith and trust that towards the doctors.
“The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot is about an African American woman who had her cells taken without any consent from her or her family to benefit the medical and science field. The Lacks family had no idea about Henrietta’s cells were alive and tested on for all kind of experiments. Henrietta’s case and other similar cases brought up an issue of who has the ownership of the tissue: the patient or the researcher? This issue became serious when researchers and scientists started making profits and having it patented. The argument against giving people legal ownership of their tissues is that everyone benefits from the research.
The government agencies response to the outbreak of influenza proved to be useless, with ignorance, failure to act, and disregard to those in need, as displayed in documents one, three, and six. Document one was written by a anonymous medical doctor in the United States, 1918. As stated in a letter written to a friend, hoping to inform them about the serious outbreak of influenza, the change influenza had caused increased medical need, as well as doubled the amount of paperwork. He continues in a meloncholy, rushed, tone, that “For several days there were no coffins and the bodies piled up something fierce” (line 8). Therefore, the governents response to the outbreak proved to be for merely business issues, as the paperwork was treated better
In “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”, Rebecca Skloot analyzes ethics in past scientific/medical studies, specifically Henrietta Lack’s case, to alter the way the reader sees how modern medicine came to be. Doctors took the cancer cells of a young, poor, African-American woman diagnosed with cervix cancer in 1951, without her consent, and used them to grow an immortal cell line that has made millions of dollars and is still used today. Skloot shows the effect Henrietta’s infamous cells (HeLa cells) have had on the scientific community presently and show the negative effect it has had on her family. The author wants the audience be aware of the how an essential cell line used in research was created with great ethical injustice. Skloot wants audiences to learn a little from Henrietta’s story and at least be aware of the ethical scientific issues today to form their own opinion.
