Seeing that the Cold War lasted about 45 years, there was a considerable amount of destruction around the world. In On the Beach, Commander Dwight Towers and his crew explored the United States on their ship called the Scorpion. They saw firsthand the destruction of the cities and the damage that was done by the war that created the radioactive dust cloud. The crew discovered an area where the surface seemed untouched but no vegetation seemed to grow. Commander Towers stated, “‘I’d say that’s an air burst’...‘Perhaps a guided missile got one there.’” (Shute 184).
I’m here today to talk about a controversial issue that has been around for a period of time, animal testing. Animal testing using animals in experiments with different chemical substances in everything from medical to cosmetic to determine their safety as well as effectiveness . It’s a problem that has existed since the 3rd and 4th centuries BCE with its merciless methods and painful ways of abusing animals for human demands, but now it’s time for it to stop. Our technology has developed significantly since; therefore, such medieval methods of torturing animals are no longer necessary. Researches have shown that each year, over 100 million animals are tortured and killed in American laboratories alone, including dogs, cats and more; this shows how far out of hand animal testing have gotten.
They were executed. Exactly twenty-nine days later it happened again. Humanity was lost in the eyes of many, all were executed this happened many times, and the priests asked the cure god for anything to get rid of this disastrous disease, but all the Cure God said was, “ In 200 years I will tell you the cure.” The king made his kingdoms brightest minds come up with a plan to, in the meantime,control the virus. Weekly tests were done by the whole kingdom, if infected they were sent to Crater island named Control Crater for its use to house the infected. Once you were shipped there named infected, you never came back.
Why were concentration camps used? How many people died in the Holocaust? Did you know that young children were particularly targeted by the Nazis to be murdered during the Holocaust. They posed a unique threat because if they lived, they would grow up to parent a new generation of Jews. Many children suffocated in the crowded cattle cars on the way to the camps.
According to Valerie Pringle, Equine Protection Specialist for The Humane Society of the United States (n.d) “They mix stallions in with pregnant mares, foals, and older horses, often leading to fights and injuries.” At the slaughterhouse, a horse is killed in a way that is easiest and quickest for the slaughterhouse worker, but most agonizing for the horse. Investigations from Mexican and Canadian slaughter plants report that horses are stabbed multiple times in the neck with a puntilla knife to sever their spinal cords, leaving them paralyzed and unable to breathe. The horse is then hoisted, bled out, cut apart, often while still conscious and able to feel everything. Slaughter simply cannot be made
All the Ramirez children suffered from health problems. The government was conducting nuclear bomb testing nearby, and the toxic fallout drifted towards El Paso and settled on the landscape, cattle and people, which infected water, meat and milk. Richard was exposed to toxic chemicals in the womb, as his mother worked with benzene, xylene and toluene in a boot factory without knowledge that harmful health effects could result. Richard suffered from temporal lobe epilepsy and
There was about 3,989 soldiers who got sick, and 1800 of them who died. Next, in Document C (Diary of Dr. Albigence) there was bad food and it was getting very cold causing soldiers to freeze. Also, they ran out of meat and everybody was throwing up, this was a vary disturbing time.

Essentially, the pipeline will be delivering 470,000 barrels of oil daily along the 1,100 mile stretch (NBC). This highly debated topic has received widespread media coverage as more than 300 native tribes and numerous environmentalist groups have shown support for the Rock Sioux Tribe in 40 different states (Yubanet). Construction for the Dakota Access Pipeline should be permanently halted due to its imminent contamination of clean water, it’s disrespect to tribal land, and its causation of unnecessary violence towards protesters. Consequently, when reviewing the
Fighting Over Animal Rights: A Rhetorical Analysis of David Masci’s Article on the Animal Rights Movement The Animal Rights Movement has been striving for public attention for the past 20 years. Recently, the animal equality epidemic has been on a massive incline and is transforming into an immediate concern. Throughout the 1990s, people questioned whether or not animals should be viewed in the same light as human beings. The controversy within animal testing has continued to grow splitting the activists from the scientists. Louis W. Sullivan, Secretary of Health and Human Services referred to these supporters as not activists but “terrorists” for hindering their research opportunities (13) Freelance writer, David Masci, attempts to address
AUSTRALIA SHOULD BAN LIVE ANIMAL EXPORTS INTRODUCTION Year after year, Australians have been shocked by the images of the live export trade. However, despite this, the cruelty continues. Australia continues to export millions of livestock from our shores every year, condemning them to a painful and prolonged death. It was only last October that the “bloodbath” involving Australian sheep exported to the Middle East for the annual ‘Festival of Sacrifice’ , renewed calls for Australia to steer away from the live export trade after thousands were butchered on local streets. To add further disgust to Australians, it was only 2 months later in December, that the mechanical breakdown of a Western Australian ship saw 13000 animals stranded at sea.
The conflict escalated in 2014 when footage of a Bureau of Land Management agent struck Ammon Bundy 3 times with a stun gun went viral on the internet. Social media spread the video around and eventually hundreds of armed militants came to Cliven Bundy’s ranch to help defend him and his cattle from court orders. This resulted in a standoff of over 400 armed protestors driving back about 50 BLM agents in order to retrieve some of the Bundy’s repossessed cattle. The BLM had to retreat in fear of an armed conflict, but would later take judicial actions against the Bundys and their followers. The Bundy Standoff is the first federal confrontation Ammon
Beginning from 1942 to 1992 the United States has done almost 1032 nuclear bomb testing around the equator. Even though it was a big step forward for the United States when it comes to developing nuclear bomb. However, the bomb testing resulted civilians to move from their hometown, and also left them exposed to radiation causing them several unwanted diseases and genetic mutations. However most of the time the voice/request of the natives left unheard or ignored or oppressed. That’s when Jane Dibblin a British journalist steps up.
July 16, 1939, Einstein 's letter. But, before his letter, President Truman 's decided to drop an atomic bomb that shook the world. The historians are conversing the use of the bomb on live population. With a few doubts, the United states developed a weapon before the war has even begun. This would not have happened if it wasn’t for a Hungarian physicist named Leo Szilard and Albert Einstein.

In the summer of 2015, a pink-eye (conjunctivitis) outbreak occurred on the family ranch. This was the greatest challenge I have faced in my beef production SAE. Many of the family cattle as well as many of my own cattle were infected with the contagious bacteria or virus. The outbreak was spreading quickly and if left untreated would blind infected animals, infected animals would also not be able to be sold. The correct vaccine would need to be found through research and administered to infected animals.
