In 1998, scientist Andrew Wakefield published an article stating that his experiment has proven that vaccines cause autism. Eventually, it was uncovered that lawyers paid Wakefield hundreds of thousands of dollars to forge the results of his experiment, reinforcing the fact that there is no proof that vaccines cause autism. Furthermore, anaphylaxis occurs in only “one per several hundred to one per million vaccinations” ("Should Any Vaccines Be Required for Children?"). On the other hand, “Studies have shown that influenza vaccine is 70 percent to 90 percent effective in healthy adults younger than 65” (Bren). Due to vaccines, millions of children are
The Effects of a Government Shutdown Government shutdowns have been around for what seems like a long time but really, quite hasn’t been. They can come in many different lengths and severities. In this paper I will be researching the causes, effects, and the processes uses to resolve a government shutdown. Causes of a government shutdown may vary slightly but every previous shutdown have been caused by a spending bill or funding issue (Matthews). However, for the most part main causes of shutdowns are quite balanced between a presidents refusing to sign a bill or vetoing a bill and congress failing to approve a budget to propose to the president to sign (Longley).

Humans are going to have accepted that we are hurting the environment and we cannot control what happens. Davis provides us with a very blunt and perhaps over the top explanation of the situation California is but without an explanation like this we will never take notice. Ecology of Fear by Mike Davis should be a wake up call for us in California that we do not live in a world. We should fear the environment not because does something disastrous, we should fear for what it can do and Mike Davis delivers on this point in Ecology of
The act of euthanasia, whether active or passive, is heavily obstructed in the medical field. Through medical ethics, the act of passive euthanasia is condoned by withholding treatment and thus, allowing the patient to die. Without any direct contact with the patient, the doctor is not considered as the cause of death. Thus, the medical field views passive euthanasia as of lesser and more permissible value in comparison to active euthanasia. In the statement made by the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association, they perceive this as contrary to mercy killing, as it is, the cessation of the employment of extraordinary means to prolong the life of the body when there is irrefutable evidence that biological death is imminent is the decision of the patient and/or his immediate family.

The anti-sweatshop movement has put many apparel makers, like the Gap and Kathie Lee Gifford, on the defensive by bombarding companies with letters, holding sit-ins at colleges and picketing in front of stores. Many apparel industry executives say that they are encouraged to turn to substandard factories, because shoppers are always hunting for bargains, so they face intense pressure to produce goods as cheaply as possible. In one noteworthy move made by Nike and its rival Reebok was to require the many Asian factories that produce for them to stop using petroleum-based adhesives that cause damage to the liver, kidney and central nervous system in favor of safer water-based adhesives.
