Kitzmiller v. Dover brought up a global attention. The case rose in 2004, when the Dover Area District High School Board tried to add religion to a science class by masking it under scientific gear of adisclaimer promoting the “Intelligent Design”, and it was supposed to be a mandatory part of the school’s biology class curriculum. High School students’ parents sued the school to ban the Intelligent Design from biology curriculum. The trial took six weeks. Judge Jones made his decision by ruling out the Intelligent Design from being considered as science, and by stating that the Board’s disclaimer was violating the First Amendment and the PA Constitution.
Not only did Gurley receive a 4-matches suspension, the NCAA also added 40 hours of community service as punishment. This attached to his ruling makes it look like a criminal offence. It means that he generates the same number of negative headlines as someone who robs a store or beats up his girlfriend. The NCAA was established to prevent Athletes from being endangered and exploited and to an extent it has successfully done so. However,
July 1961, Yale University Psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted an experiment to test peoples’ obedience to authority figures. He wanted to see how many people would comply or resist commands by (an idea of) an authority figure. Migram’s experiment began with two men about twenty to fifty years in age. The participants volunteered through an advertisement and a promise of $4.50 for their participation. One man would assume the role of the “teacher”, and the other would act as the “student”.
After reading the issues about marriage licences and the Stanley Milgram video, I decided to address the Stanley Milgram experiment video, since it was the most shocking/interesting for me. The Stanley Milgram experiment was created to researching how far someone would go in obeying an instruction if it involved harming another person. He was interested in how naturally normal people could be influenced into committing cruelties to another innocent person. He got this idea from how cruel and evil the Germans were in World War II. Milgram would try to force someone to go against their basic morals.
They had two options send your drawing in and get prize money or enter the classes through the mail (pre-online art classes). After drawing these characters for a while, I got up the nerve to draw the “Lucky” and submitted to the Art Instruction School in Minneapolis, MN. I didn’t want the money even though I needed it. I lied about my age, because you have to be 14 to receive the classes. One evening I received a phone call and a man on the older side stated I had won the drawing contest.
My teacher noticed my struggle and called on another kid, Briggs Huxford, to “help” me- which really just meant that he was going to read that section. To this day, 8 years later, that was one of the most disappointing and embarrassing situations I have ever been in. In the summer of 2006 at my dad’s house in New Mexico, I learned to read. My step mom taught me. The Pirate Book- I don’t know the official book name or how I acquired it,
She is now mentally unable to do anything a normal human would be able to do. Whenever genie would make a noise her father would bark like a dog or he would beat her, therefore she had no idea of a language or communication other than a bark. Genie only understood around 20 words when she was 13 years old and they were mostly negative words for example 'stop it' 'no' and 'naughty'. Scientists and psychologists believed that Clark committing suicide also would've effected genie so they assessed her a lot more to see how she dealt with it. Genies case was a gift to the world as it helped answer a lot of questions, a lot of professors and so on wanted to study genies case as it helped them answer a lot of questions about language an development for example 'do you have to learn language and speech when you are young or can you start at any point of your life?'
When reading this book The Wave, by Todd Strasser, you are expected to have some basic knowledge about World War two and how Nazis killed the Jews, Hitler. Without any knowledge of World War two then you would not understand the main idea of the experiment, which was to show the senior history class what it’s was like being a Nazi and getting an understanding of why and how they influenced and brain washed all those people into doing such cruel and inhuman act of killing over 11 million jews. The character of Todd Strasser intuitively understood this need in teenagers, and the rapid spread of The Wave was due in great part to their vulnerability to the most attractive aspects of Fascism and Nazism: belonging to a group that is special in
In Europe in 1999, more than 100 students in Belgium got sick after drinking Coca-Cola. Scientists examined the beverage and saw that there wasn’t anything to cause real damage and that it was a case of mass hysteria triggered by the scare of mad cow disease and dioxin-tainted animal products (10 Incredibly Insane Cases of Mass Hysteria, 2014). Post traumatic stress disorder is often seen in soldiers that have come back from war. Commonly seen, when soldiers are back at home and hear a loud noise, they automatically take guard because they think the loud noise was a gun fire, bomb, etc (Two Stories of PTSD,
Arguably, one of the most well-known experiments regarding the tendency of humans to inflict harm upon strangers under orders from perceived authority figures is Stanley Milgram’s electric shock experiments in 1963 (Smith, Aquino, Koleva & Graham, 2014). The experiment was based on the Nuremberg Trials, wherein the Nazi soldiers on trial claimed that they were only following orders, and as such implied a lesser role in their crimes during the Holocaust. While there are many factors that influence injustice against a people, in this paper, the role of moral exclusion will be examined in detail in order to ascertain how those excluded from powerful groups by virtue of their lineage and race could then be subjected to significant harm, and perhaps
The Milgram 's obedience study showed that Stanley Milgram, a professor conducted an experiment to show how people can be influence by obedience to authority. Milgram set out to prove that an individual can carry out orders given, even though he or she knows that it is a inhuman test that is being given. The people used in this experiment were deceive from the start of Milgram test and his work was identified by Roger Brown as 'the most important psychological research ' done in his generation. Milgram had murdered thousand and thousand of European Jews, he had recruited 780 subjects and wanted to prove that these New Haven citizen transformed into brutal Nazis without much difficulties, Soc. (2013)50:623).
