NAME : HIEW YEE KEE (0319397) Good afternoon Miss Deborah and my course mates. I’m standing here today to present a speech on a very common phenomenon which is cosmetic surgery. What exactly is cosmetic surgery? According to Medical News Today (2014), cosmetic surgery aims to improve the aesthetic appearance of a person.
The L'Abri belonging to the aubigny's. Madame Valmonde enter into L'Abri and she shuddered at the first sight of it. It was a sad looking place. From that statement "it was a sad looking place", it makes me think about the place was ugly, dirty, and gloomy. I can feel about madame valmonde's feeling.
The world health organization has revealed that the illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually or more than an hour. The world health organization (WHO) estimates that over 100,000 organ transplant has performed across the world every year. But due to a mix of government policies, personal beliefs about organ donation, and our ability to safely harvest organs quickly, we would need over ten times as many donations to meet global needs. It is a universal truth, that whenever supply doesn’t meet demand, people turn to illegal means. WHO estimates 5% to 10% of all organ transplants performed worldwide are illegal and out of that 75% are the kidneys, the most sought-after organ.
The author in some way or another portrays everyone as an underdog. A vague definition of underdog is someone who is considered an outsider and, or, under estimated. Harper Lee does an amazing job in bringing out the underdog that is in everyone. Arthur Radley was very much an underdog. He was an outsider and no one really thought much about him, except to gossip, but Boo turned out to be so much more.
Monsters have always been perceived as creatures with petrifying characteristics. They are often described as dire, dreadful, and horrendous. An individual deemed as a monster by an entire community must have committed atrocious acts; however, the unnamed protagonist in Margaret Atwood’s short story “Lusus Naturae” was considered monstrous by the entire faction despite neither committing such acts. The protagonist, who’s suffering from an illness called porphyria, was disdained and classified as a monster merely because of her looks—her yellow eyes, pink teeth, red fingernails, and long dark sprouting hair around her chest and arms. Even though her outward appearance is comparably peculiar with respect to the appearance of typical humans, one cannot basically imply that she is a monster.
Furthermore, the rate of malignant melanoma has risen rapidly, making it amongst the highest for any cancer. More than 10,000 cases of skin cancer (particularly malignant melanoma) are diagnosed each year. Overall, proportionately higher cases in younger people are being diagnosed for malignant melanoma. In males, a malignant skin cancer can develop on the back or chest, while for females, it’s usually seen on the legs. Malignant cancer in particular, has claimed over 2,000 lives in the world each
Also, an additional problem relating to cosmetic/plastic surgery has come to light: “Absent regulation, however, any doctor with a license to practice medicine can perform any procedure a patient wants done” (O 'Donnell). Doctors of any speciality have started performing cosmetic procedures on patients without proper training. The doctors can freely practices whatever procedures to their hearts content- completely legally. No repercussions to be faced by these money hungry doctors. There has been instances where dentists have started performing complex cosmetic surgery practices, and as a result the persons undergoing these procedures have faced fatal outcome (O 'Donnell).
At the opening of the play, Drummond is extremely unpopular with the townspeople. To put it simply, he’s downright hated. According to Reverend Brown, Drummond is “A vicious, godless man!” (27) Reverend Brown also says, “Henry Drummond is an agent of darkness. We let him in our town!”
The actor Kenneth Branagh portrayed Hamlet as a depressed and gothic individual. At the beginning of the scene, Branagh begins his speech while he is walking towards a mirror staring at his reflection. As he closes in on the mirror he not only has the same expression on his face, but also uses the same monotone voice. By doing so, the audience can see the disgust on his face, showing that this is a serious matter. The use of the monotone speech illustrates the idea that Hamlet sees no value or significance in his life, but rather that his life is meaningless.
There was a desire to improve drug safety Europe wide as adverse side effects of medicines amassed a death toll of around 197,000 patients per year in the EU. These unintended side effects also accounted for 5% of hospital admissions and unfortunately were the fifth most common cause of death in hospitals. As result in 2005 an independent study and review of medicine safety monitoring was undertaken. The study found that the new pharmacovigilance legislation could save up to 5910 lives per year across the year. A significant amount of public consultation was also included as part of the study.
Talk to your health care provider about recommended vitamin and mineral supplements following gastric bypass surgery. Furthermore, surgeons in Europe who have banded for over a decade (almost universally) are starting to do gastric bypass preferentially, or as rescue or revision operations on their failed LAP-BAND patients. Nevertheless, LAP-BAND is an easy operation to perform, with few early complications associated with the operation itself. In 2002, the number of gastric bypass procedures jumped 40%, to 80,000.
The CDC abortion surveillance reports that in 2013, a total of 664,435 legal practiced abortions were recorded from their 49 reporting centers. The rate for the same year was 12.5 per 1000 women with the ages 15-44 years while the abortion rate at 200:1000 live births. The black women are 3.75 times more likely to terminate their pregnancy than their white counterparts. About 90% of the abortions occur in the first trimester. Since the legalization, the fatalities are still high compared to the 80s.
Racial and ethnic disparity in teen pregnancy rates abound. The National Campaign (2014), observed that African American female teens are twice in danger of getting pregnant than white teenagers; about four out of every ten of them would have gotten pregnant by their 20th birthday, and that as at 2010, the pregnancy rate for this racial group already stood at 99.5 out of every 1000 for female teens aged 15 to 19. Further studies suggest that the Hispanic/Latino minority group is not far behind, with rates greater than the national average (Shoff & Yang, 2012). The economic costs are enormous and multifaceted; educational, health, occupational, economic, and so on.
