I discovered that only a few decades ago, East Africa was plagued with an alien filovirus that eventually manifested itself in the U.S. capital. As a result, federal forces had to handle the delicate monkey house situation without attracting much attention from the media and in the process courageous soldiers and scientists had risked their lives attempting to quarantine it. Their mission was successful and in the end the monkeys were all brought to the USAMRIID labs for further research on Ebola and its cousins. In addition, Preston’s analytical comparison between the origins of AIDS and Ebola unveiled a potential connection that could explain the diseases’ outbreaks in modern society. The majority, if not all, of the information I learned about the history of fatal viruses has come from reading The Hot
Eventually, the American prisoners were taken to Dresden where they were forced to stay in buildings that had previously been used as slaughterhouses. It was meant to be a punishment, however, this punishment ultimately became beneficial because when the bombing of Dresden began, the meat lockers in the slaughterhouses offered the people shelter. The only people in Slaughterhouse Five, the slaughterhouse Billy Pilgrim was staying in, were “the Americans and four of their guards and a few dressed carcasses... and nobody else. The rest of the guards had, before the raid began, gone to the comforts of their own homes in Dresden. They were all being killed with their families” (Vonnegut 79).
A twenty-two year old prisoner of war emerges from the slaughterhouse where he works to see a formerly beautiful city reduced to nothing but rubble and embers. This man would go on to remove close to 30,000 corpses before seeing them incinerated. This experience would go on to haunt and plague Kurt Vonnegut for years on end. His experience of this event led him to write Slaughterhouse-Five, the story of Billy Pilgrim, who was also an American soldier who experienced the firebombing of Dresden and lived to tell about it. By drawing parallels between himself and Billy Pilgrim, providing philosophies and points of view, and recalling wartime events from WWII in the wake of a new war, Kurt Vonnegut brings many new concepts to the hypothetical table in the novel Slaughterhouse-Five.
This was the scene where he was painting one of his ‘black paintings’ on the walls of his house and saw what looked like zombies, coming out of the walls trying to attack the artist. Those were the paintings in which his wife Leocadia would look at and ask why he wouldn’t paint something more ‘happy’. He was unable to do so since he was compelled to record the atrocities of war in hopes of evoking in viewers a bit of compassion for those who have suffered and experienced being brutalized by other people which were the commands of Ferdinand VII. In the end, the movie ends just the way it started, with death. What is important here is that the director was trying to show us how Goya was suffering most of his life because of how the love of his life, the duchess had died suddenly because she was poisoned by the envious Queen and Royal Secretary, which is why we keep seeing her spirit.
Objection 1: In the instance of a school shooting, how does a nurse display empathy for someone who did something so horrible? If the shooter is being admitted to the hospital of the nurse’s employment, the shooting was likely in close proximity. If one of the victims was known by the nursing staff, they may be reluctant to provide care. Objection 2: In the instance of a school shooting, why should the shooter be “rewarded” for killing innocent children? Although shooters will face life in prison, they still are given the opportunity to live, something they took away from everyone murdered.
That is a very very low number because each year approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized (For veterinarians, Iditarod is all about the sled dogs). Out of those 1.2 million of those are dogs. Some of those does are at kill shelters because they were abandoned. So it’s that also animal cruelty if a dog is healthy so why would you kill them. Also each year 16,000 dogs killed each year in organized dog fights (Please Help Stop Organized Dog Fighting) and that number continues to grow.
Despite criticism, Paul Jurkowski says “I graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1982. There were four or five of us who refused to kill a beagle to learn principles of cardiac function. It never hurt my studies or my career. It was a horrible tragedy in my mind to kill all of those sweet creatures for something that could have been taught in other ways,” says Paul Jurkowski, M.D.” ( “The End of Animal Laboratories in Medical Student Education”) Unlike many other unfortunate people Jurkowski was not
The movie was entitled “The Cassandra Crossing” released on 1976 and directed by George Pan Cosmatos. The actors in the movie are Richard Harris as Dr. Jonathan Chamberlain, Sophia Loren as Jennifer Chamberlain, Burt Lancaster as Colonel Stephen Mackenzie, and Ingrid Thulin as Dr. Elena Stradner. It started when three terrorist tried to blow up the U.S. mission at the International Health Organization but they failed because one of them was shot by the security, the other one escapes and the last was hospitalized because he got infected by a highly contagious pneumonic plague as diagnosed by Dr. Elena Stradner. The terrorist got infected by the plague because he entered a no entry room that contains pneumonic plague germs. The other terrorists
We All Have Rights Did you know that about over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused in US labs every year. The reason these animals die is because they are experimented on but half of the time the experiment does not even work. Scientist use animals for medical research to try and find a cure for a disease. All different kind of animals are tested but mostly they are mice, rats, monkeys, and rabbits. Scientist test all different kind of drugs on the animal to see if they can cure the disease the animal has, if it works on the animals it might have a chance to work on humans.
Did you ever know that you are killing an animal per day? Because most of the products that you use every day like shaving cream, shampoo, and shower gel were probably forced down a Pig, Squirrel, or maybe even a cat. Therefore, many humans think that animals have no feelings and no rights. Also, they started to use them in medical research and test the cures and drugs on them. Some people might say that losing a lot of animals is better than losing one human; therefore, they inject them with a disease, after that they give them the cure to see how they will react and if it will work or not.
