    There has been much debate and controversy recently concerning Nike's Asian labour practices. This is a very complex issue and one that is a long way from being solved. It is very difficult to determine which side of this argument to defend, as both sides acknowledge the facts, yet put a completely different spin on them. Do you believe Nike's critics who say they're exploiting workers? Or, do you believe Nike when they say that they are giving workers in these countries wonderful opportunities to raise their standard of living? The consensus answer to this question by

    Supernatural Element In Macbeth

    1015 words, 5 pages

    Macbeth is thought to have been first performed in 1606, for the visit of the Danish king to James I. It is therefore likely that not only was James I’s Scottish ancestry reflected in the play, but also his interest in witchcraft and the supernatural. In order to please the king, Shakespeare made the influence of the supernatural element on both the course of Macbeth’s downfall and the dramatic tension of the play significant. The fact that the Witches open the play is not only visually effective on stage, but it also foreshadows the importance of their role – and that of the supernatural

Animal testing is the use of animals for testing medical products before they are used on humans. Most animals used for testing are small rodents. In fact, ninety percent of the animals are rats, mice, birds, fish, rabbits, and guinea pigs. Animals such as dogs, cats, pigs, sheep, primates etc. make up the last ten percent.
