Although these controversial statements with the doctor's unethical treatment of the patients in Flowers for Algernon, I believe that the doctors did the right thing with the patient and acted in the well-being of the patient. Charlie Gordon's doctors acted ethically when they performed the surgery to make him smarter. In real life doctor's have to make these same decisions today. They should always make the ethical decision of caring for their patient and being their friend just like Dr. Strauss and Dr.
They were mainly doing the surgery for their own benefit. In the story "Flowers for Algernon," Charlie overhears the doctors talking about the release date for the surgery results. This tells readers that the doctors did not care what happened to Charlie; all they cared about was getting the title of being the first doctors to be successful in a surgery like this. They also cared more about seeing the effects of the surgery on a human so they could use it for their own benefit. Therefore, the doctors surely could not be ethical if all they cared about were themselves.
I believe that Fitzgerald’s parallel to Gatsby and Zelda’s parallel to Daisy says something important about their relationship. If we go off of what happened in the book, Fitzgerald was, at one time, enamoured with Zelda, and became wealthy to win her over. It worked, and the two of them got married. However, Fitzgerald soon realized that it was not him Zelda loved, but his wealth and success. This must have devastated Fitzgerald, as Gatsby’s life ended because of Daisy.
If life was not started at conception in these cases and scientifically the unborn child could not be having any thoughts or actions running through the brain the argument would be stronger to persuade the anti-abortion side. Personally, taking away an unborn living thinking fetus’s rights just because we cannot hear them or see them physically does not seem justified. In case eight I do not see how women can just say “well it is nice of me to share my body so I will or I will not because I don’t have to,” when they have a person breathing and thinking inside of them that could be the next inventor or great doctor of the world. For Thompson to be more persuasive to the opposing side she should try discounting life at conception and arguing how the fetus can not have thoughts, therefore it cannot have desires or rights because the unborn person is 100% reliant on its mother and therefore her right has to superior to the unborn child because this fetus cannot perform one single task without the help of its
The narrator wants to avoid death. They view death as fearful, yet later accept it. They want to live life to the fullest before they die. The simile, “like the measles-pox” is important because during the time this was written vaccines were fairly new and so something like measles was inevitable without a vaccine similar to how death is inevitable.
“And what's more, I love Daisy too. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time” (Fitzgerald 138). These words, spoken by Tom Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby, exemplify the personality traits that are omnipresent throughout the novel. Tom is Daisy Buchanan’s husband whom she marries after her first love, Jay Gatsby, leaves for the war.
Michael Mosley’s research and account of the history of some of the experiments conducted shows that the discoveries made by pioneer psychologists has paved the way to new technologies and treatments for the people of today. Without these important discoveries, it is evident that society would not have as much of an understanding of the inner workings of the brain as it does now. The documentary The Brain: A Secret History paints a picture that these experiments were necessary in the past because they have brought forth a new understanding of disorders of the brain today, and without them, we may not have as clear of an understanding about our brains as we do
In the story, “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes Charlie had an operation to make him smart. Some say he should’ve had the operation and I think that he shouldn’t have had it. In this essay I will give examples why he shouldn’t have had it. I don’t think he should have had his operation in the first place.
Immunology is a key to medical modern advances, and I would be glad to be apart of the advancement of medicine. Before modern times, medicine wasn’t as realizable. Civilizations throughout history have been able to advance medicine. Even though Egyptians were well known for being very healthy, their practices are not comparable to modern medicine. The ancient Chinese contributed to advances in medicine.

Advances in science and technology have enabled Eric to regain abilities that he had before the accident. He is now able to move his wheelchair, before he could not because he did not have the ability to move his arms. Technology has given her hyy im many new abilities that he sadly lose during the accident. If I could ask Eric LeGrand one question it would be, "If this accident did not occur, then what would you be doing?
Or if our eyes were like microscopes then we would know more about organisms we can 't see. If our senses were heightened then we would know more about our world and universe. First of all if we had resources to help us out like the telescope or microscope. In the story it says “If our eyes had the resolution of high performance microscopes nobody would have ever blamed the plague and other sicknesses on divine wrath.” (line 131)
Charlie started forgetting everything he learned just after a couple of months. Charlie had so much knowledge and was even smarter than the doctors that worked on him. He worked on a formula trying to make sure that the next time their is a procedure it will work for sure on kids and adults. The doctors couldn’t even do that, or as fast as Charlie can. The doctors hurt Charlie mentally because they never mentioned that his intelligence and memories will start to fade away forever.
We need people to program a device or piece of technology so it can go do things and function properly. Without people like this, our favorite devices won’t work and we wouldn’t be where we are with today on technology. By learning how to code we can create new technology or even improve our old devices and put new software it in, basically like an update on computers, phones, etc. Coding literacy is the best because without these awesome ways to do things we would all be crying, whining, and begging for something great. We don’t want to go back to the old days where we have to click or do multiple things to complete one task; we want a program or code that you can take the least amount of time and it completes it.
