Diagnostic Assignment Use of tobacco by teens in America
Use of Tobacco by teens is a huge problem, not just in America, but worldwide. 1 in 5 teens from age 13-15 smoke worldwide. This is where it begins, from 7th grade to whenever you find the strength to quit. Unfortunately most people who smoke do not have the strength to quit, and smoking becomes part of the daily routine. Smoking goes to just something you tried once with your friends, to the never ending battle with addiction. 5.5% of 8th graders smoke daily. Some questions that I ask myself are how do teens get away with smoking when it is illegal? Do they get cigarettes from their peers, or even parents? Can teens get the help they need to quit? My opinion is that schools should have a program to better educate students on the effects of smoking, and the risks involved.
Teens can be influenced to start smoking by pressure or imitation of their peers, friends or even family. Also, teens are prompted to use cigarettes if they see someone they look up to smoking in a movie, or a TV show. Teens also start smoking out of frustration or anger, they use the cigarettes to patch up the holes in their lives, the trouble in school, or the lack of support from families and friends. Use of tobacco can also lead to using other drugs and underage drinking. The majority of teens who smoke will have trouble in school, cut class, and fall behind with school activities, simply because it is no longer their main interest. Their main interest is now smoking, and finding a way to get cigarettes for the next time they decide to smoke.
My opinion is that all teens should be better educated about the risks of using tobacco. Not just teens that are using tobacco, but also the other teens who do not smoke, to prevent future addictions. For example, some risks include an unfavourable lipid profile and potential retardation in the…...

Little No Horse

... Townsend 1 Evelyn Townsend Professor Anne Vial Women in Literature 3 December 2012 A Contextual Analysis of the Spiritual and Sensual Significance of Flesh in The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse Following tradition is a monumental aspect of Catholicism. While young Catholics are encouraged to grow in faith, they are taught to be cautioned by anything that contradicts that specific form of faith. Anything that contradicts the traditions enforced by the Catholic Church is faulted and therefore is not a topic of discussion. The authority held by Catholic priests, nuns, saints, cardinals, and other laity intimidates and inspires those who lack power. The individuals who feel distanced from power in the Catholic Church are the same individuals who are awestruck by the learnedness of the very same people that hold them back. Should those people of power in the Catholic Church be held to such high esteem? As an author, Louise Erdrich enjoys taking a conversational approach to how much the representatives of the church should model virtue. Her work constantly challenges how people of faith conduct themselves behind what society assumes them to be. Erdrich’s novel The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse listens to that very conversation in addition to uncovering what is behind the “flesh” of those who supposedly strictly follow the traditional morality that is thought to embody the Catholic Church. Purity in the sense of the church......

Feral Horses in the

...Feral Horses in the U.S. – Indigenous or Invasive Feral horse (mustang) herds roaming the Great American Plains are a well-known symbol of American history. Yet few are acquainted with their convoluted history and the socio-political and environmental conflicts they are involved in. The horses of today originated in North America but went extinct in prehistoric times due to unclear reasons. They disseminated to other continents and were reintroduced to North America by Columbus’ men. The period of the horses’ historical absence from North America has sparked debates as to their official status. Some horse advocates and environmentalists argue that feral horses are native to the continent and as such should be protected and given free space to roam. Their main arguments are that horses originated on and inhabited the continent long before humans started populating it, and that the feral horses of the Wild West are a national symbol of history and pride. Others, mainly farmers and agriculturalists, push for population control and limiting the mustangs’ area because they are an invasive non-native species that harms natural ecosystems and competes with livestock for resources. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is responsible for implementing policies concerning feral horses. Currently, following the Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, the Bureau captures feral horses and gives them away for adoption. The main issue facing the Bureau is the legal and......

Fjord Horse

...Fjord Horses The Norwegian Fjord Horse or Fjord Horse for short is normally small but is a very strong horse breed from the mountainous regions of Western Norway. It is a very agile breed with a light draft horse build. All Fjord horses have dun color, with five color variations recognized by their breed registration. It is one of the world’s oldest breeds, and has been used for a farm horse for hundreds of years in Norway, and in modern times they are popular for their normally good temperament. They are used both as a saddle and harness horse. Some characteristics are that at maturity they range between 900 and 1200 pounds, and are usually brown dun in color. The (Norwegian) Fjord Horse is one of the world’s purest and oldest breeds, being first domesticated 4,000 years ago. According to http://www.breyerhorses.com/Norwegian_Fjord_Horse “herds of wild Fjord horses existed in Norway after the last ice age. Excavations at Viking burial sites indicate that the Fjord horse has been selectively bred for at least 2,000 years.” According to http://www.horsejournals.com/norwegian-fjord-horse-all-ages “Rune stone carvings in Norway, many of fighting stallions, show images of horses recognizable as Fjords. The Vikings took their Fjords, which they used as war mounts, in their travels to Scotland, Iceland, and elsewhere. In these lands the Fjord influenced the Highland Pony and the Icelandic Horse. From the Vikings’ horses of war, the Fjord evolved into a working farm horse for......

The Rocking-Horse Winner

...Name Professor Course 3/1/2015 The rocking-horse winner D.H. Lawrence’s “The Rocking-Horse Winner” is a short, tense story with a morbid ending. Throughout the piece, Lawrence often paints his characters as two-dimensional and unlikeable. Hester is portrayed in the story as hard, cold and lacking the ability to show love to her children. She speaks to the children with a certain bitterness that Lawrence never explains; we do not understand why Hester acts the way that she does, so we do not empathize with her. These characteristics make one to distaste Hester more. With an unlikeable mother and growing tension in the family’s house, it is easy for a reader to feel removed from the text. However, Lawrence skillfully uses contradictions within the personalities of the characters in the story and personifies inanimate objects in the text to keep readers engaged in the story. By subverting our first impressions of almost all the characters and the storylines, Lawrence captivates his audience by keeping us guessing and hoping for a resolution until the last sentence of the story. Although the main narrative of the story follows young Paul through his demise, Lawrence inserts the most contradictions in Hester’s character arc depicting her as a complex and dark woman. These contradictions add layers of complexity to their relationship and keep the reader questioning the direction of the story. Using a decidedly fairytale-like style, Lawrence introduces Hester,......

Horse Epm

...Equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) is a common neurologic disease of horses in the Americas; it has been reported in most of the contiguous 48 states of the USA, southern Canada, Mexico, and several countries in Central and South America. In other countries, EPM is seen sporadically in horses that previously have spent time in the Americas. Etiology and Epidemiology Most cases of EPM are caused by an Apicomplexan protozoan, Sarcocystis neurona. Horses are infected by ingestion of S neurona sporocysts in contaminated feed or water. The organism undergoes early asexual multiplication (schizogony) in extraneural tissues before parasitizing the CNS. Because infectious sarcocysts are only rarely formed, the horse is considered an aberrant, dead-end host for S neurona. Like other Sarcocystis spp, S neurona has an obligate predator-prey life cycle. The definitive (predator) host for S neurona in the USA is the opossum (Didelphis virginiana). Opossums are infected by eating sarcocyst-containing muscle tissue from an infected intermediate (prey) host and, after a brief prepatent period (probably 2–4 wk), infectious sporocysts are passed in the feces. Nine-banded armadillos, striped skunks, raccoons, sea otters, Pacific harbor seals, and domestic cats have all been implicated as intermediate hosts; however, the importance in nature of each of these species is unknown. Sporadic cases of EPM are associated with Neospora hughesi, an organism closely related to S neurona. The......

Trojan Horse

...The Trojan Horse Race Bruce Schneier Communications of the ACM September 1999 1999 is a pivotal year for malicious software ( malware) such as viruses, worms, and Trojan horses. Although the problem is not new, Internet growth and weak system security have evidently increased the risks. Viruses and worms survive by moving from computer to computer. Prior to the Internet, computers (and viruses!) communicated relatively slowly, mostly through floppy disks and bulletin boards. Antivirus programs were initially fairly effective at blocking known types of malware entering personal computers, especially when there were only a handful of viruses. But now there are over 10,000 virus types; with e-mail and Internet connectivity, the opportunities and speed of propagation have increased dramatically. Things have changed, as in the Melissa virus, the Worm.ExploreZip worm, and their inevitable variants, which arrive via e-mail and use e-mail software features to replicate themselves across the network. They mail themselves to people known to the infected host, enticing the recipients to open or run them. They propagate almost instantaneously. Antiviral software cannot possibly keep up. And e-mail is everywhere. It runs over Internet connections that block everything else. It tunnels through firewalls. Everyone uses it. Melissa uses features in Microsoft Word (with variants using Excel) to automatically e-mail itself to others, and Melissa and Worm.ExploreZip make use of the...

A Closer Look at Horse Slaughter

...sensitive and controversial topic of horse slaughter for human consumption and zoo animals, although, currently banned in the United States due to key legislative acts in 2006-2007. The argument addressed will touch on the advantages, and disadvantages of lifting the horse slaughter ban in the U.S. The advantages include but are not limited to, horse welfare, economic revenue and profit, and restoration of the failing horse market. Disadvantages are, again, welfare depending on how you view the topic, as well as drug and medication regulation due to the fact that horses are not raised specifically for their meat products. Introduction Horses have been used for numerous activities, duties, and jobs over thousands of years. These uses in early years range from field work like plowing, to transportation, as well as aiding and assisting during war. As civilization became more advanced, horses were needed less and less for utility. Horsemanship slowly converted into more of an art form with the purpose of enhancing the horse’s strength and beauty (Mutsune, 2012). In the modern world of 2015, horses are purchased as equine athletes for many different horse events such as showing, racing, or rodeo to name a few in general. Most of the time, these animals are being used for recreational hobbies or pure enjoyment, as economic profit in the horse industry is rare. Most equine businesses struggle to operate due to the current economy. Horses can live to be 30 years old, and need...

Healing Horses

...primarily focus on improvement and behavior modification. While medication is prescribed to control severe symptoms such as hyperactivity or seizures, there are no known cures for autism. (Therapeutic) There are only methods aimed towards lessening symptoms. However, research into a fairly new treatment called equine assisted therapy, is beginning to show signs of promise. Equine assisted therapy is a type of animal assisted therapy, a field of mental health that acknowledges the bond between horses and humans. It acknowledges the potential for mental healing that can occur when a relationship is formed between the two species, among other benefits as well (Therapeutic). It involves equine activities organized and facilitated by a licensed mental health professional, often with the assistance of a horse professional. These activities are most often completed on the ground and include such things as grooming, feeding, haltering and leading the horse. During the therapy session with the horse, the therapist and participant partake in talk psychotherapy, processing emotions, behaviors and repetitions. The fundamental objective for the child is to build skills including personal accountability, assertiveness, non-verbal communication, confidence, and self-control (ET) With more studies arising, there has been a growing general consensus that equine assisted therapy is highly beneficial to cognitive, psychological, and social domains (ET). Nevertheless, while some......

Bicycle and Horse

...Community-oriented policing is a system that addresses the top concerns of the community which implies there would need to be more communication between members of the community and police officers. The article Policing on Bicycles and Horses by Sam Swindell focuses on two types of community-oriented policing. The two types being bicycle and mounted patrol of C.O.P. Bicycle patrol is a type of community policing patrol serves well in that the police have the opportunity to encounter more citizens and extend their contacts in the community. Many police departments have been adapting bicycle patrols into their community policing programs due to the positive response given by the community and the officers. Mounted patrol has been around for centuries and will continue to be around as there is always a positive response from the community. Police on bicycles seem more approachable and attractive to citizens especially the youth. The officers tend to dress informal so they can be better recieved by the community. These officers have the same advatages as those on foot patrol have, but they are able to get move faster. They can hear, see and smell the community around them. The bicycles can go where cars can not. In the Los Angeles Police Department they enhanced mobility crowd control when bicycle patrol was first deployed in 2000. The article also states that bicycle patrol is quieter than any car. The article tells about the disadvatages of bicycle patrol. It states that......

Horse Dealer's Daughter

...1. The idea illustrated by the breakup of the Pervin household was an atmosphere filled with death and hopelessness. The Pervins are a family of horse dealers, who have recently lost their father. This circumstance has left them grieving and in debt. While this situation alone is depressing, Lawrence uses words such as “desolate” to describe the breakfast table, and “dreary” to describe the furniture to reinforce the hopelessness of the atmosphere. 2. Joe was having the hardest time dealing with the fact that they would have to leave their house and their lives behind. He was said to have thought of himself as one of the horses. Joe’s fate was to marry and survive from the employment provided by his father in law, who was a steward of a nearby estate. I believe that Joe was thankful that he had somewhere to go, but was regretful that he would have to sacrifice his independence and freedom, and have to become a “subject animal now.” He would be assuming the role of one of his work horses. 3. The events of Mabel’s life have molded her into a determined and strong willed woman. Her strengths are not apparent, because the story also reveals her weaknesses. Through much of the story, Mabel is suicidal and depressed. However, Mabel has been the glue that has held her family together since the death of her father, and she took great pride in that fact. Stability was the only thing that she lived for since the passing of her mother. The depression starts to...
