Randall Sherwood final draft 1

In Peter Singers article in New York Times Magazine he proposes a solution to world poverty. While he is just proposing a solution to a problem that has flustered this world we love so much, it in fact cannot be a savior to world poverty. Singer is not an economist or anything of that sort. Singer has a utilitarian mind set about how things might look bad to some people but he sees them for how they are and does not judge. Singer has great intentions with his solution, but the solution is probably inevitable. As long as there are people on this planet there will always be someone hungry and needing something. I’ve taken some quotes from his article for my argument against... View More »

The New York Times magazine states that Americas unemployment rate as of modern times at a high rate. How could Singer actually propose this idea of donating money to other kids or services, when a lot of Americans cannot even take care of their selves or their families? In another study from that article it stated that a little less than half of America’s population gets Government benefits such as food stamps, families first, stimulus’s on our income tax, and welfare checks. People needing this assistance obviously cannot afford to donate money to these needy children. If those children are needy, then wouldn’t our children also be considered needy too.
As like Singer, there is an example story that I have thought up, based on true events, about a needy family that consists of three members. The father’s name is Bill. Bill, his girlfriend, and their five month old son live in an apartment complex. The apartment complex is based on their income which is called federal housing. Federal housing only accepts applicants that do not make enough money to rent a general public residence. For every person on the application they have to provide income information. The only person with income on the application is Bill. Bill has a full-time job at Hardees restaurant. Bill averages roughly six hundred and twenty dollars a month. He makes minimum wage. Bill puts how much money he earns a month on his application, yet his rent is three hundred and seventy dollars a month. Not to include the families other bills, such as utilities. The families light bill is roughly one hundred and ...

    Bioligy Osmosis Investigation

    2028 words, 9 pages

    We chose to do an experiment on osmosis because this is a process that happens in our bodies daily and we need it to stay alive. For example if your arm got chopped off the doctor in the hospital will need to put just enough water inside you so the ratio of water to blood is exactly right. Hypothesis Osmosis is described as the process in which the movement of water molecules from an area where they are highly concentrated to an area in which they are less concentrated takes place. The movement of water molecules must occur through a partially permeable membrane. The molecules continue t

    Osmosis

    1996 words, 8 pages

    Introduction: Cellular transport of particles and molecules are carried out through a number of biological and physical mechanisms and phenomena. It can be divided into passive and active transport. Passive transport does not require energy, while active transport requires energy for movement of particles to occur (Marieb & Hoehn, 2007). Osmosis is a passive transport. It is one of the main routes in which fluid and electrolyte balance is regulated (Nurses' station.com, 2007). It is simply defined as “movement of water (solvent) from an area with more water to an

    Acids And Bases: Definitions According To Arrhenius

    1492 words, 6 pages

    Acids: Citrus fruits taste sour because they contain weak acids such as citric acid. According to Arrhenius, acids are substances that are able to ionize in aqueous solutions to form a hydrogen ion H+ (proton donors). HNO3 [pic] H+ + NO3- The hydrogen ions H+, give all acids their sour taste, change blue litmus to red, and corrode some metals. -Naming acids: -When an acid dissolves in water to produce hydrogen ion and a simple nonmetal ion, the prefix hydro- is used before the name of the nonmetal and its -ide ending is changed to -ic acid. Example: HCl = hydrochloric acid

    Section 18 By: Julio C. Quiroga February 6, 2008 Abstract: The main point of this experiment was to estimate the osmolarity in a potato tuber cell. Osmosis is when water crosses any semi-permeable barrier such as the cell wall or membrane from a low solute concentration to an area of high solute concentration. The test was to determine the molarity of solution at which potato does not absorb water. Seven tuber cylinders of potato were incubated in a series of sucrose solutions to determine at what molarity the water will not have change in weight. If the solution is more concentrated wit
