The two philosophical principles I find most interesting that Martin Luther King is working in his letter and also relates with Aquinas discussions in the Summa Theologiae are the difference between unjust and just acts; and what breaking the law implies. These two philosophical topics appear in both of the readings very often because of its importance to human behavior. I decided to choose these principles because from my perspective, I think they are the ones that appear the most and give meaning to the whole message Martin Luther King and Thomas Aquinas are trying to let the world know. More importantly, the purpose of Martin
“The Butter Battle Book” by Dr. Seuss is an effective satirical representation of the Cold War. Dr. Seuss was alive during the Cold War; he wrote this book to display his feelings towards the war and used it as an eye opener to bring about public awareness of not only the national issues, but also the tension involved in some of the global ones. The book wasn’t just entertainment for children to enjoy or just awareness for the adults but a lesson that can be easily understood by both audiences. He was passively trying to get across to people that with the social issues that were arising, there were flaws on both sides of the argument. The Cold war began in the early 1940’s.
The rhetor is compelled to speak about this issue for it gives those whom she interviewed a sense of voice and a call out to doctors to be more understanding of their patients. The Kairos of when the essay was written is essential because if the essay was written in modern day, many will not read it for it is currently not a concerning issue compare to how it used to be. Living life while believing there is something living and crawling inside you is no easy thing just anyone can live with. Morgellons disease is a relatively rare condition that most frequently affects middle-aged white women. The skin shows symptoms of rashes, sores, fibers, the sensation of creatures crawling on or in your skin, and extreme itching.
Fortunately, both distinct groups of Chiropractors result in successful treatments and therefore happy patients, with the amount of visits to clinics increasing from 3.6% of the US in 1980 to 11% in 1997, with an ever growing popularity to refer friends and family to chiropractors too (Meeker, 2002). Unfortunately like any profession in the Health Care system, there are chiropractors that do give unorthodox treatment, which is one of the reasons that some of the general public are still uncertain about the profession that chiropractic
In the first section, Kalanithi uses analysis to look at the moral aspect of operating on patients. He says that he needs to learn the identity and the wishes of his patients so he can have more respect to them as he operates on their brains and could take one of those away from the patient. He sympathises with other medical professionals by saying “Those burdens are what makes medicine holy and wholly impossible: in taking up another’s cross, one must sometimes get crushed by the weight” (98). The word play he employs adds to the effect of how serious it is to operate on someone and know a doctor might take a person 's identity away if the are a millimeter away from where they were suppose to cut. In more than one occasion, he uses process to explain his steps of feelings.
Concerns over palliative withdrawal of ventilator support in patients causing undue suffering have been discussed in the literature. Certainly, terminal withdrawal of support should be treated with the same aggressive measures that we use to treat those patients that are better able to communicate their symptoms. However, to simply state that we need to treat symptoms aggressively is naïve in assuming that we know completely what the patient is experiencing. High quality evidence does not exist to describe the best methods for which palliative ventilator withdrawal should be performed under. That being said, withdrawal of ventilator support will continue and it is our responsibility to perform such procedures informed with the best available
Modern hospitals have undergone tremendous technological advances and patient-focused changes over the past 50 years, culminating in facilities that offer world class care, patient safety, and compassionate attention. Despite this safe and seemingly comfortable environment, a small of women chooses to decline the hospital setting to give birth in their own homes. Giving birth in the house with proper medical care is generally safer than giving birth in a hospital due to the reduced risk of infections or diseases. Home birth is not a risk in itself, but if there are sudden complications or the mother is not able to naturally give birth, this presents problems, as there is no one to conduct Caesarean section or provide some painkillers through
But not all tumors are life-threatening. Experts say doctors can’t tell which breast tumors are harmless; so many mammograms produce a “false positive”. These false results can cause women to have surgery, radiation and other unnecessary treatments. Despite the new changes, the American Cancer Society says it’s still important for a woman to talk with her doctor about her risk, and decide what’s best for her health. If she decides to get a mammogram between the ages of 40-44, can still get one, and women older than 55 can still get one every year.
Mental hospitals today are safe and effective. Some treatments from 20th centuries are still used today like EST, but some of the treatments they needed to get rid off. Patients may only receive up to 12-14 treatments, compare to 100+ that were used in the 1950’s. Instead of Lobotomy or any torture treatments that were used before, patients are cared for with one-on-one assistants who help them back to a healthy mental or physical state. Mental hospitals had changed over the time, they are not what they used to be and they have definitely taken a turn for the
The reason I chose this theory is because my anxiety is mainly caused by my own irrational thoughts, impossible expectations and distorted interpretations about these situations just as according to Albert Ellis’s Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) that “people contribute to their own psychological problems, as well as to specific symptoms, by the way they interpret events and situations” (Ellis, 1994, 1999, 2001a, 2001b, 2002, 2008; Ellis & Dryden, 1997; Wolfe, 2007 as cited in Corey, 2013, p. 275). Therefore, the CBT is the most suitable theory to find the right solution as the best way to deal with this kind of problem is to solve it at the root cause, which is to change one cognitive processing; the way one perceives and evaluates life
