Basically this says that we do things because of our genetic makeup and the DNA we inherit. What if the Chicken’s chromosomes and hormones are designed to tell them that they are supposed to cross that street? It makes you wonder if we do things because we just want to, or are we genetically designed to do these things because of what we have inherited. The biological perspective and the psychologist who study it believe that our behaviors are influenced by our chromosomes, hormones and our brain. Even when it comes to something as little as crossing a road.
Michael Pollan’s alternative to Factory farming has given a huge insight into a better ethics on food. In “The Animals: Practicing Complexity” Michael Pollan writes about a polyface farm and how it works. The goal of a polyface farm is to emotionally, economically, and environmentally enhance agriculture. Everything on a polyface farm has the potential to be helpful to something else on the farm. Pollan states “The chicken feed not only feeds the broilers but, transformed into chicken crap, feeds the grass that feeds the cows that, as I was about to see, feeds the pigs and the laying hens” (Pollan 345).

However, evolution is very important and should be taught in Biology classes because students need to understand how Homo sapiens evolve if they don’t believe in the biblical story. Everyone may not be Christian, so it’s important for students to get an idea or perspective of where we may have possibly come from. Whether it’s from the eyes of God or from monkeys it at least gives people a chance to choose what they believe, but as well as understand what they
Pharming What is pharming? The term "pharming" comes from a combination of the words "farming" and "pharmaceuticals." Gene pharming is a technology that scientists use to alter an animal's own DNA, In pharming, these genetically modified (transgenic) animals are used mostly to make human proteins that have medicinal value. The protein encoded by the transgene is secreted into the animal's milk, eggs, or blood, and then collected and purified. Livestock such as cattle, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, and pigs have already been modified in this way to produce several useful proteins and drugs.
Propaganda is used in the book Animal Farm to convince the animals to believe certain ideals. Squealer makes the animals think a certain way, and thus, manipulates the animals. In much the same way, the modern world uses propaganda to achieve nearly, if not the same, goals. In modern times, propaganda is utilized to achieve three goals: to deceive people, to justify wars, and to destroy the credibility of a person or nation. In George Orwell’s book, Animal Farm, Squealer uses propaganda negatively to influence inhabitants of the farm, which is parallel to today with how propaganda deceives people, justifies war, and destroys credibility of a person or nation.
Chick-Fil-A vs Chipotle: Which one is better? Many people lately have been raving over Chipotle, and Chick Fil-a lately. I have always thought to myself what is so great about these two food chains. Many people like Chipotle, and then there a a lot of people that love Chick-Fil-A. I just want to figure out what is so great about these two places, and figure out how they are the same, and how they are different.
Most notably is the appeal of pathos. If you’re driving by and see this advertisement for the first time on the billboard you most likely at least have a small chuckle. Once you begin to laugh at this you actually find it amusing and your brain will automatically begin to think of good things from eating at Chick Fil A. This ad also successfully uses the appeal of ethos. Within the ad itself, it quite literally says to eat more chicken.
Both the story and the movie had excellent examples of foreshadow. One in The Birds movie was when the bird attacked Melanie’s head. That can be compared to when the birds were flying around Jim’s head in the story when he was on the tractor. A couple more from the movie were the different birds flying/attacking together and the American radio. They can be compared to the story very much because the story had the different birds together, too and even though the setting was different there was still a radio; the BBC radio.
I will eat with this knowledge and at least know one of the many ingredients. From chicken nuggets to Dr. Pepper, Pollan has taught me that most of my favorite items contain corn. Although my habits will remain I am appreciative of this newfound knowledge and will now value the hundreds of fields that I pass
