Who is Lucy? In 1972, a man, Donald Johanson, and his team, from the Hadar foundation in Ethiopia, discovered a fossilized skeleton of a biped creature, in which they named Lucy, from the song "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” (“What Was "Lucy"? 1) This animal unrolled humanity’s evolutionary theory of the transition from quadruped apes to biped humans. Although Johanson’s find was significant, his methodology had some sufficiently great flaws. It is a bad scientific practice to start research with a desired conclusion in mind; this will lead to bias towards fitting the evidence to the desired conclusion rather than examining and analyzing the available evidence objectively.
The Affordable Care Act requires the majority of Americans to have health insurance; although this is a huge change, the Mayo Clinic has announced that their organization will continue to care for their patients in the same ways that it always has; offering high quality care regardless of the person’s ability to pay (Wedzina, 2013). In an interview with the CEO Dr. John Noseworthy, he was asked what was the impact of the Affordable Care Act would be on the Mayo Clinic. He stated that, “If it is rolled out and fully realized, it would significantly impact the financial model of the Mayo Clinic. It is basically about insurance coverage, there is going to be less reimbursement for hospitals and doctors, so we are planning the next stage, which is how we redefine the way healthcare is delivered and experienced by patients” (Goozner,

On the contrary, scientist began to unearth new fossils in Asia and Africa, that were thought to be human ancestors that came hundreds of thousands of years old after Piltdown Man. They were found to be less human with small skulls, but without authorization to the Piltdown bones and efficient dating methods, they were all but ignored because they contraindicated Eoanthropus dawsonii. It was not until 1949, when the bones were discovered to be around a hundred thousand years old; with the application of newly discovered fluoride dating. Subsequently, they were fully analyzed in 1953 and exposed as a hoax. Scientist discovered that the jawbone indeed came from a female orangutan and was less than 100 years old.

In Africa, a village of the name Sankuyo earned $600,000 from the 120 animals that were allowed to be victims of trophy hunting(Onishi). Without trophy hunting, there will not be as much money owned by these African villages and the villages will slowly decline to poverty. To add to this argument, lions have been seen entering the villages, where the ban has been placed, to find food because they would normally eat the elephant carcusses left by trophy hunters. The people of these villages are claiming to be poisoning those animals who trespass in order to save their own crops. Are humans really that much more important than these innocent animals?
