  • Predation As A Fact

    638 words, 3 pages

    Phil 2 McMahan begins his argument to do away with predation with the assertion that animals are in great agony when they are killed by predators. He doesn’t give any proof of this, but that might be because he is building off of Singer’s Animal Liberation. In Animal Liberation, Singer explains in detail how animals are capable of feeling pain and how similar their experience of pain is to the human experience. Then to connect Singer’s argument to McMahan’s point, one just has to have seen how prey is killed by predators. To witness a wolf ripping apart a rabbit

The amendment proposed is to allow the grant given to people and facilities to use that grant for health purposes rather than to have it focus solely on making the facility itself impressive looking, because it does not matter whether a facility looks good if the care it provides is horrible. The first topic mentioned is to allow and expand the Affordable Care Act to include the school-based system and allow these schools’ medical fields (i.e. nurse’s office) to provide better care.

    532 words, 3 pages

    Disease and disability can be words that can sometimes be interchangeable, and, as discussed in class, it is important to be able to distinguish the two words, especially since the two words, although sounding similar, actually have two completely different meanings.

    I interviewed four people, three without disabilities and the fourth diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Mobius Syndrome. I asked each of them what disability meant to them.

This could be from birth or caused by some type of accident in life or simply old age. One of the participants stated that it was a condition that would have someone live outside the norms of society. This line of thinking places the definition of disab

    1345 words, 6 pages

    Summary This quasi memoir is written by a man named John Callahan, a cartoonist. Initially flipping through the pages, it seems to be a rather childish book with cartoons riddled all throughout it. However, it is far from childish. John Callahan is a man who became quadriplegic due to a car accident, which he explains in the book. The book is hardly structured as a flowing story as you would expect, rather it is an accumulation of stories throughout his life. The book is set up in two ways: either he is telling a story about an event in his life and he illustrates it with cartoons, or he shar
