So we ran a BLAST on Anthony’s blood to identify the DNA sequence for the bacteria and diagnose him. The BLAST identified the bacteria that he has to be Influenza B Virus, also known as the flu. To treat the flu, acetaminophen was given to decrease the fever and help with the muscle aches, as well as antiviral medications to fight the virus. Getting lots of rest and drinking lots of fluids will also help his body fight off the virus even
Nevertheless, in examining the legal arguments presented by Mallon and her attorney, Leavitt draws the readers’ attention to the fact that public health officials were “chasing” Mary but not many other healthy carriers. For example, Alphonse Cotils was spreading typhoid fever just like Mary Mallon was, but he was nonetheless released by promising to do his business over the phone. This example clearly demonstrates the unequal application of justice by public health authorities. Leavitt attributes such differential treatment of healthy carriers to the social attitudes that were prevalent at that time in the United States: many people believed that the Irish, and especially women, were born to be
Summary: Janet Cooke, a former journalist for the Washington Post, fabricated a story about an eight year old boy living in the District of Columbia with a supposed addiction to heroin. Cooke had claimed to have obtained information about his struggle with addiction from interviews with the boy, whose name was Jimmy, his mother, and her boyfriend. When the story first began to circulate, it was received quite heavily by the public. Marion Barry, the Mayor of the District Columbia at the time, had even requested and insisted that medical assistance be given to the child. However, upon discovering that his efforts to find Jimmy had came up completely short, the Mayor then realized that the legitimacy to Cooke’s story was losing credibility by the moment.
6003 Option 1 Vito Russo, author of The Celluloid Closet (1981, 1987), which was made into a documentary, critiqued not the invisibility of LGBT characters in movies but the way they were depicted. In the movie Cruising, the underlying message was that “homosexuality was contagious and brutal.” (Gibson, pg.304) Another example was in the movie, E.T: The extra-terrestrial, that a lesbian relationship was more intimidating than a creature from outer space.
However, the end of the 19th century brought new sodomy laws written with homosexuals in mind. These laws prohibited sexual acts in public as well as in the private home of a couple. Police officials were able to use these laws as a way to harass and provoke the emerging LGBT community. As the 20th century progressed, the gay and lesbian community began to grow, creating conflict between the traditional ways of life and the new and urbanized culture.

Koren talks about the case and the two letters from the victim and Turner’s father. According to the article, several sexual assault advocates believe that the Stanford University case reveals why many assault cases on campuses remain unreported (Koren). Turner did not deserve the six-month jail term because the punishment meted to him did not fit the crimes he
Writing is a form Coates can express himself, and called his writing “a confrontation with my own innocence…and I was left with the cold steel truths of life” (52). He is aware of the harsh reality of what life is for a Black man in America. For instance, In Washington D.C, his friend named Prince, was shot and killed by a policeman, for looking suspicious, but, Prince was a good citizen, he had a family and went to college. This is a current issue with inequality and racism, and Coates writes the letter to tell his son how this injustice is still persistent in modern society. Coates has been stopped by policemen and has faced discrimination for his skin color, despite living in a country with the “American Dream” of everyone being equal and having a voice.

Dr Harold Glucksberg, a Washington physician, along with other Washington physicians brought suit against the State of Washington, alleging arguing Dr Glucksberg would frequently treat terminally-ill patients, and would have assisted those patients in ending their lives if not for the state’s ban on assisted suicide. Glucksberg brought suit in before
Another example is Tamir Rice, a twelve-year-old shot by police. Media revealed that Rice’s father had been convicted for abuse of women. This investigation received backlash for the same reason as Michael Brown: even if there was a history of violence, these black men (and child) were the victim, and their histories of violence did not justify what had happened. Despite this, they were being represented as suspects rather than
Henrietta’s tumor was treated with radium, which was a white radioactive metal that glows blue. It destroys any cells that it comes into contact with and can burn the skin off a person’s body at high doses. Dr. Lawrence Wharton Jr. dilated Henrietta’s cervix and prepared to treat her tumor, but first shaved off a piece of tissue from her tumor and a piece from her healthy cervical tissue. After the procedure was finished, a resident took the samples to Gey’s
